Anti-Hillary Crusader Trey Gowdy Just Turned On Trump In A HUGE Way

It’s probably a good thing that GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy is exiting stage extreme-Right after this term in office, because he just lost a shitload of support from the Stupid Part of America.

“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.

This discussion could have, as it has all over the place, gone “full Hannity.” Gowdy could have done exactly what Trump wanted to screamed from the rooftops that the memo — written by Republicand and edited by Republicans before an unapproved version was sent to the White House, which made redactions — discredits the criminal investigation into Donald Trump and his campaign. In fact, 2017 and prior Trey Gowdy would have salivated at the opportunity. But 2018 Trey Gowdy (the one who is quitting after this year) instead says that “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” and that the memo does not “in any way” discredit him or his investigation:

To most of us, this is a surprisingly sensible stance from a terrible human being. But to conservatives, the fucking world is ending, man:

While many on Twitter are announcing that Gowdy has “found a conscience” and “has redeemed himself,” it’s important to remember that this is the same guy who launched politically-motivated investigation after politically-motivated investigation into Hillary Clinton and spent $150,000 of taxpayer money to settle a veteran-discrimination and retaliation claim with a former staffer.

Trey Gowdy is terrible. That even he is admitting that Trump and friends served us up a gigantic Nothingburger™ says everything.
