Rep. Trey Gowdy just rang the alarm: it may be time for a new special counsel. That is, we need a special counsel to look into exactly what Special Counsel Robert Mueller is doing in his drawn-out Trump-Russia investigation.
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News, Gowdy said that “we’re trending perhaps towards another special counsel” in regards to the recent outing of Democrat chicanery with the infamous Trump dossier.
You hear that? Gowdy wants someone to watch the watchers – namely, the FBI and its questionable handling of the Trump dossier.

Here are more of Gowdy’s comments, via the Daily Caller:
“You know, Maria, this Democrat memo makes me smile. If it were up to Adam Schiff, if it were up to him it would have been a haiku, and not a memo because he did everything he could to keep us from finding out any of the information that was in either one of those memos. So Congress has proven itself incapable of investigating this FISA abuse. DOJ should not be looking into it. We need an independent arbiter that’s either the inspector general or special counsel.”
I couldn’t agree with Gowdy more. The revelations contained in the Nunes memo from last month demonstrated unprecedented bias within the FBI and possible abuse via the secretive FISA court in order to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
We also know that former FBI Director James Comey was caught leaking information to the press about the ongoing Trump investigation, all done in order to spark a special counsel.
There are too many coincidences involved in the whole Trump dossier saga to chalk the whole thing up to the FBI just diligently doing its job. We need answers. Trey Gowdy desperately wants to get to the bottom of this.
