Rep. Trey Gowdy is hitting back at liberals who claim the House Intelligence Committee should not have released the controversial memo that suggests President Barack Obama’s FBI abused its powers to investigate associates of the Donald Trump campaign.
According to The Washington Examiner, the FBI used the anti-Trump dossier paid for in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign to obtain a warrant from a federal court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Of course, liberals are losing their minds, claiming the memo is unimportant and false.
The Democrat House Intelligence Committee released a statement blasting the decision to release the memo.
“Chairman Nunes’ decision, supported by House Speaker Ryan and Republican Members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, to publicly release misleading allegations against the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation is a shameful effort to discredit these institutions,” the statement read.
It further stated that the memo was only released to “undermine the Special Counsel’s ongoing investigation, and undercut congressional probes.”
South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy hit back — and hit back hard.
A former federal prosecutor, Gowdy explained why it is crucial for the American people to know the contents of the memo.
It is important for the American public to know if the dossier was paid for by another candidate, used in court pleadings, vetted before it was used, vetted after it was used, and whether all relevant facts were shared with the tribunal approving of the FISA application.

“It is important for the American public to know if the dossier was paid for by another candidate, used in court pleadings, vetted before it was used, vetted after it was used, and whether all relevant facts were shared with the tribunal approving of the FISA application,” Gowdy tweeted.
Gowdy went on to say: “While this memo raises serious concerns with the FISA process, I have been and remain confident in the overwhelming majority of the men and women serving at the FBI and DOJ.”
It is absolutely disgusting that liberals would go so far as to call the memo “misleading” and “shameful.”
Someone needs to put these people in their place.
In the meantime, the House Intelligence Committee continues to gather additional information that could be even more damaging to liberals.
Good for Rep. Gowdy for having some common sense and not giving into the liberals’ sensational and emotional false arguments.
