Former Congressman Trey Gowdy told former FBI Director James Comey that he should be wearing a prison uniform after reports showed that his behavior at the FBI command was below the established standard on at least three occasions.
Gowdy was emphatic in saying that although he had not been charged with a particular crime, that was not a victory, and he added, “Don’t write any more books on ethics,” addressing Comey, according to the Fox News interview.
“I don’t know what report Comey read. This is the third IG report that has found his conduct to be substandard … if he wants to take a victory lap because he’s not indicted, more power to him. Don’t write any more books on ethics… Don’t tell me what the ethical standard is if you think this report vindicates you.”
For Gowdy, “an FBI lawyer manufacturing evidence to get a surveillance warrant against an American citizen [Carte Page, member of the Republican Party campaign in 2016]” can be taken as an action that points to the FBI’s bias in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“Not only do you not have any business being an FBI agent or law enforcement, you probably ought to be wearing an orange jumpsuit,” Gowdy specified in the same interview.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report revealed “numerous and serious errors and omissions,” as well as “serious performance failures” on the part of the FBI, led by James Comey Jr., in connection with the investigation into the false collusion in 2016.
Carter Page has not remained silent and announced on Dec. 9 that he had hired a team of lawyers to review Inspector Horowitz’s report and file a lawsuit.
Page also sued the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the law firm of Perkins Coie and two of its partners, Mark Elias and Michael Sussman, in federal court in Oklahoma for the same case.
He also hopes to take legal action against former CIA director and current CNN collaborator John Brennan.
