In an extensive interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, the South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy executively and meticulously took apart some of the former FBI director’s talking points which led up to President Donald Trump’s firing of the former FBI director. In the video below, they stopped short of calling Comey a liar.
This all came about when Comey had an earlier appearance on Fox New’s Special Report with Bret Baier where he made a series of odd claims from his time as FBI director while he was investigating the now disproven “collusion” between the Donald Trump presidential campaign and the Kremlin.
Comey told Baier that he isn’t sure exactly how much of the debunked ” Trump Dossier” created by former British spy Christopher Steele was paid for by the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
He followed the claim by downplaying the importance this dossier had in obtaining the wiretap warrant to spy on Carter Page who is a Trump associate. Comey denied that he engaged in leaking when he secretly gave his confidential memos about his meeting with Trump to a friend to have them published in The New York Times.
