“You have more bias than I have ever seen manifest in a law enforcement officer in the 20 years I used to do it for a living and four other DOJ employees who had manifest animus toward the person they were supposed to be neutrally and detachedly investigating,” Gowdy said.

Rosenstein and Wray answered questions about the FBI’s and Justice Department’s actions in regard to the Hillary Clinton email investigation and Russian investigation on Capitol Hill Thursday. (RELATED: ROSENSTEIN SMIRKS AS DEMOCRAT ROASTS REPUBLICANS OVER ‘IMPEACHMENT’ CLAIMS [VIDEO])

“Two years into this investigation. We’re a year-and-a-half into the presidency. We’re over a year into special counsel,” he added. “You have a counterintelligence investigation that has become public. You have a criminal investigation that has become political.”

The House will vote on a resolution demanding the Justice Department comply with requests for documents and subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees later on Thursday.

Gowdy also took shots at the Democrats in Congress, stating, “Democrats are using this investigation as a presumption of guilt, which I find astonishing, in the long run, for the health of this republic and encourage them to go back to the presumption of innocence that we used to hold sacred. There is a presumption of guilt.”
