Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) recently referred to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) as one of the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” In an interview with Fox News Gowdy responded to the insult and then took it to the next level. Needless to say, Schiff was completely demolished.
“Let me tell you this about Adam,” Gowdy started, “Adam’s had a terrible last couple of years, he wanted to be the attorney general under Hillary Clinton and no one in the country worked harder to protect her than Adam Schiff.”
“He wanted to be the head of the CIA,” he offered, “he wanted to run for Senate in the People’s Republic of California, but he couldn’t win either of those seats, so now, now he wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, speaking of the apocalypse, Adam Schiff wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.”
“If you ever have, I dunno, a couple of free months with nothing else to do,” Gowdy said, “I want you to go back, Jason, and think of all the things you would not know if you had taken Adam Schiff’s advice.”
“You wouldn’t know the whole spontaneous reaction to a video was a hoax in Libya,” he continued. “You would have never have read the first [Ambassador] Chris Stevens email.”
“You wouldn’t know that Hillary Clinton had this unique email arrangement with herself because Adam Schiff did everything in his power to keep you from finding out,” he said.
“You wouldn’t know about the dossier,” he continued, “you wouldn’t know who funded it, you wouldn’t know it was used in a court proceeding, you wouldn’t know about [FBI official Peter] Strzok and [former FBI lawyer Lisa] Page, in fact you wouldn’t even be having a show tonight. You wouldn’t be having a show about Strzok and Page if Adam Schiff had had his way.”
He then finished with this zinger, “So look, if they secede from the Union and President Maxine Waters wants to make him the attorney general in California, more power to him.”
“Otherwise, I don’t think anybody on my side of the aisle gives much of a damn of what Adam Schiff thinks,” Gowdy finished.
