Trey Gowdy told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Wednesday not to conflate Devin Nunes’ ill-advised briefing of President Trump at the White House with the investigation into alleged Russian tampering in the 2016 election.
After the “New Day” host asked Gowdy how he was pursuing those two incidents, the South Carolina Republican noted they’re “two separate lines of inquiry.”
“What Devin went to the White House about has nothing to do with Russia, so put that in a separate track,” he continued. “I was ready yesterday to start interviewing witnesses, all of them.”
“I want to sit down with Adam Schiff and say Adam give me your list of witnesses. Let’s do it together. Let’s interview them together. We’re both former federal prosecutors. let’s find the facts and the truth together.”
“Give me your witness list,” Gowdy waxed. “I’ll give you mine and let’s start doing it in the form that is most conducive for gathering the most amount of information.”
“Alisyn, the trip to the White House that Devin took had nothing to do with Russia,” he reiterated at the interview’s close. “So let’s don’t conflate the trip with the investigation.”
