Trey Gowdy Says FBI Agent’s Texts Show “Unprecedented Bias”


Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Tuesday that FBI agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages show an “unprecedented” level of bias “you rarely see” from FBI officials. That means a lot coming from Gowdy who has been a staunch defender of Robert Mueller and the investigation.

Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, discussed the messages with Fox News.

Gowdy was asked about the message by Peter Strzok to his mistress Lisa Page in which he mentioned the “insurance Policy”, a likely reference to the FBI investigation of the Trump Campaign.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” reads the Aug. 15, 2016 text message.

“If they were coming up with a quote ‘insurance policy’ in case Donald Trump won, that is devastating,” Gowdy told Fox’s Bill Hemmer.

“What I hope is that insurance policy was not a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.”

“This was a level of bias that you rarely see, frankly,” Gowdy added of Strzok.


  1. OK where are the subpoenas? Or, is Ryan predictably blocking that too? And where are the rest of the republicans, other than Gowdy, Gaetz, Jordan? Are they all too scared, or too corrupt, to speak up?

  2. There really is a CABAL, a real life mafia, represented by Hillary who can stand up against anyone or anybody.
    The freedoms before enjoyed by all, especially the freedom of speech is OVER. We will let George Soros and his sons use their great mega fortune, (which he made through stealing the assets of Jews he turned over to the Nazis for the death camps), to destroy our country. There is no one, and I mean NO ONE with the balls to stand up to Hillary and George Soros. It’s over, gone, kaput, my friends

  3. Trey,
    As much as we love you and admire your efforts, so what?! These people have torn up the constitution but nothing will be done about it. Sitting back and making inane criticisms that have no meaning, without action are worth nothing. How Rodney RosenSTAIN came to be Assistant Attorney General. and a Crook such as Comey, immediately triggered an investigation of the russia, russia, russia without delving into the email scandal and the loss of top secret documents, and the Ur Anus One situation, (where Robert Mueller was involved in the cover-up), says it all.
    It’s like getting a pep talk from a Marine Officer who is not going out on the combat sweep, with all due respect, Colonel, Sir, stop with the bullshit, so we can check our gear and weapons: Go back into your bunker, Colonel, Sir: BIG NEWS?? DOJ is investigating Anti Trump Agent Peter Strzok for “Hatch Act” ??
    Har, Har, Har, Har.

  4. The FBI is Well-Known to harbor Russian agents. The cases of Robert Hanssen, Richard Miller, Earl Pitts were found to be agents of Russia and now McCabe seems to fit the mold of another Hanssen. He was involved in just about eveything Russia and now McCabe seems also to have his hands in everything Russia.

  5. When Sessions revealed there “might” be an “innocent explanation” regarding what was reported in the press I knew right away the fix was in. When someone is involved in a cover up it is quite easy to come up with rationales that will explain “everything away”. Habitual liars are experts in doing this. Only through some whistleblower could a revelation of truth be exposed.

    It is now reported that the “insurance policy” was meant to be about evidence of Russian collusion by Trump, or at least the “allegations of pervasive connections”. This is suppose to substantiate Russian ties and the need for “insurance”. But it states “I CANNOT BELIEVE WE ARE LOOKING…” and can just as easily be construed as “cannot believe we are pursuing such flimsy allegations”, and therefore need a “better” insurance policy.

    What is barely mentioned, even by Republicans, is the conspiracy by an Administration of many parts that attempted to “influence” the outcome of an election. It matters little of what each specific detail may relate to because the overall premise was to STOP or PREVENT one candidate in particular from reaching the office. It’s been admitted by the Intelligence Community in Congressional testimony that even Russia didn’t have such high goals. Who cares what each particular text has said. The focus and Outcry should be on the “EFFORT”. That part is conclusive, and directly stated. This concerted and coordinated “EFFORT” is being sidelined to “ALLOW” the players to wiggle away from that “EFFORT”, subverting an Election. That in and of itself should be sufficient to file Criminal Charges. How is this NOT a Criminal Conspiracy of the highest order. Gowdy, Jordan and the rest are missing the point.
