Trey Gowdy managed to take shots at both Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton in just one Fox News interview Thursday morning.

Host Bill Hemmer asked the South Carolina Republican what he thought about Rice refusing an invitation to testify about Russia hacking and the unmasking of Trump campaign officials.

“There are other ways to invite people other than via a letter,” Gowdy asserted. “There are things called subpoenas. You shouldn’t have to use them with a former national security advisor, but if you do, you do.”

The representative from South Carolina said that Rice is a “very important witness.”

“Members of Congress don’t pick the witnesses, lawyers don’t pick witnesses…facts pick the witnesses,” he stated.


Hemmer then asked if Gowdy thought FBI Director James Comey did the right thing by indicating that he was reopening an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails shortly before the presidential election.

Gowdy blasted the notion that Comey was responsible for the outcome of the election.

“I don’t think [Comey] told Secretary Clinton to have her own server. I don’t think he told her to give disingenuous answers to questions throughout the campaign. I don’t think he told Anthony Weiner to communicate via text with underage girls,” Gowdy railed.

“Secretary Clinton, at some point, ought to do a little self reflection.”
