Trey Gowdy responded this morning to former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice declining an invitation to testify before Congress on the unmasking of Trump team members.

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 said. Before adding the 5 words that made Susan Rice shake with fear, “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.

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.”

I would really like to start seeing these people arrest and televised when it is done. Mr. Gowdy is great but needs support. Maybe he should ask the real we the people I do not think he would have to ask twice.
