Yesterday, Former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice declined the Senate request to testify on the ‘Russian interference’ of the 2016 election. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer Thursday morning that ‘we’ll subpoena Susan Rice if we have to’.
Trey Gowdy: “There are other ways to invite people other than via a letter. There are things called subpoenas. You shouldn’t have to use them with a former national security advisor, but if you do, you do.”
“Rice is a “very important witness.”
“Members of congress don’t pick the witnesses, lawyers don’t pick witnesses…facts pick the witnesses.”
Trey Gowdy also took a shot at Hillary Clinton over the notion that Comey was somehow responsible for the outcome of the election…
“I don’t think he [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.”
“Secretary Clinton, at some point, ought to do a little self reflection.”
