Trey Gowdy (R-SC) just made a shocking discovery about Attorney General Jeff Session’s secret plan to use his power for corruption. Now, Gowdy is going public with what he knows and the one huge demand that he sent to the Department of Justice.
In a drastic turn of events, Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who is the current House Intelligence Committee Chairman, has changed his mind on a key subject involving Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ controversial decision to have Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigate the corrupt deep state operatives within the FBI and the Department of Justice.
Sessions may have thought that no one realized what he was up to when he announced on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, that his own department’s Inspector General would investigate crimes committed by corrupt agents in our government. He could not have been more wrong, and “the bulldog” from South Carolina just sent him a letter to prove it.
Gowdy and his colleague Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) sent a bold letter to Sessions on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, telling him that a second special counsel is absolutely necessary to investigate the Department of Justice and the FBI for their part in the FISA abuse scandal. This was a change of heart for Gowdy, and wait until you hear why.
The two GOP Congressmen realized that Sessions was using his authority as Attorney General to have Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigate the FISA abuse even though he has no power to subpoena key players involved in the scandal who have already left the Department of Justice and the FBI in addition to witnesses who never worked for either of those agencies. Sessions’ secret plan to let the deep state operatives off the hook by appointing a powerless Inspector General had finally been exposed.
If Sessions’ plan had worked, Inspector General Michael Horowitz would have conducted his entire investigation without the ability to force corrupt deep state hacks such as former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe to talk. The bottom line is that the Inspector General has no prosecutorial power.
Jeff Sessions is not a stupid man, he’s just a very dishonorable man. It’s naive to think that Sessions was not aware of the limitations of the Inspector General and the extent to which those limitations would benefit the criminals who carried out highly illegal political surveillance on Donald Trump. Sessions knew exactly what he was doing and should resign immediately for trying to abuse his power.
A copy of the letter penned by Gowdy and Goodlatte was posted to Twitter on the House Oversight Committee’s page.

Following the release of the letter, Gowdy appeared on Fox News where he explained why he changed his mind and now demands that Sessions appoint a second special counsel to investigate the FISA abuse scandal. “What changed for me was the knowledge that there are two dozen witnesses that Michael Horowitz, the DOJ Inspector General, would not have access to,” Gowdy said. “When I counted up 24 witnesses that he would not be able to access were he to investigate it, yeah only one conclusion, that’s special counsel.”
Watch as Trey Gowdy tells Fox News’ Bill Hemmer exactly why Jeff Sessions must appoint a second special counsel to restore integrity to the Department of Justice:

After seeing how Gowdy and Goodlatte counteracted Sessions’ plan to let the Inspector General perform a fruitless investigation into the FISA abuse scandal, it’s quite obvious that our Attorney General has sold out to the deep state.
In my opinion, Sessions is compromised in some way that makes him nothing more than a puppet. He continues to betray millions of American patriots for the benefit of individuals who broke the law in order to carry out political surveillance for former President Barack Obama and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Sessions should meet the demands of more honorable men and appoint a second special counsel, and then he should step down.
