Trey Gowdy dominated Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who testified before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning. The exchange between the two is simply amazing. Enjoy…
Daily Caller has the scoop:
Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy aggressively questioned the presence of a special counsel in the Russia investigation while questioning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday.
During the House Judiciary hearing, Gowdy noted that the entire purpose of appointing a special counsel is to get rid of conflicts of interest. However, there seem to be numerous conflicts of interest on Robert Mueller’s team.

More from Right Scoop:
Honestly, I’m still full of doubts about this ‘high standard’ especially after what we’ve learned recently. I really want to believe Rosenstein as he seems to be, from what little I know, a standup guy at the DOJ. If he weren’t such a guy, then I think Jeff Sessions would have told Trump not to appoint him to the position. So while I am full of doubts, it’s still my hope that this investigation is run without bias until its conclusion.
More from Politico:
House oversight committee chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has referred allegations that President Donald Trump sexually assaulted women to the Justice Department, rebuffing a request from House Democrats that his committee investigate the claims.
“Those alleging sexual assault or criminal sexual conduct deserve to be interviewed by law enforcement professionals, and charging decisions should be made by prosecutors based on the quantum and quality of the admissible and provable evidence,” the former prosecutor continued.
And Gowdy for the win?
You’d have to think so.
There’s not much that gets passed the South Carolina Congressman. He’s a bull!
