While discussing House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’ recusal from the Russia probe on MSNBC Thursday, Zerlina Maxwell cast doubt over Trey Gowdy’s ability to conduct the investigation in a “completely transparent,” bipartisan fashion.
Gowdy, along with Mike Conaway and Thomas Rooney, were announced Thursday morning as the three committee members now heading the probe, to which guest Kristin Tate said she was “happy to hear.”
“The Benghazi guy,” Maxwell, who previously served as Hillary Clinton’s director of progressive media, incredulously responded to Tate. “The Benghazi guy is taking over, so that’s not necessarily something that Democrats will appreciate that much.”
“I think it’s important that [Nunes] is stepping aside because we need a bipartisan, completely transparent investigation into what happened because it’s not really a partisan issue,” she continued. “The fact that a foreign government interfered in our election should matter to Republicans and Democrats.”
