Former Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy has dropped the hammer on Attorney General Merrick Garland and called for more transparency regarding the raid of President Donald Trump’s home.
Gowdy, who currently hosts Fox News’s “Sunday Night in America,” blasted the Department of Justice for releasing a heavily redacted document while leaking select information to “liberal reporters.”
“Many Americans still have questions,” Gowdy said on his show Sunday.
“These questions are not political.
“They are factual and legal.
“If you are contemplating indicting a former president, I think we’re entitled to more than 38 pages of black lines and DOJ leaks, clearly, the department is talking to liberal reporters.
“If you’re going to tell the story, tell it all and tell everyone, tell the American people.
“Don’t claim you can’t comment on uncharged conduct,” Gowdy blasted.
“If there is a case to indict a former president, give us what you got.
“Perhaps some people have already made up their minds, but many have not.
“They want more information.
“Is this really about the return of documents, or something else?
“If it’s about the return of documents, they are back now.
“So why is the DOJ saying that the investigation is just beginning?
“What’s at stake are two foundational beliefs, that no one is above or beneath the law, not even former presidents, and number two, similar facts should lead to similar outcomes.
“Justice should be the same for everyone. And never be used as a political weapon.
“This is important for the country.
“So give us more than 38 pages,” he said.
