Trey Gowdy: Democrats are Terrified Trump Dossier is 'Piece of Fiction'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.01.17

South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy believes liberal lawmakers are terrified the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ will be revealed to be a total “piece of fiction,” questioning democratic motives as they try and stonewall Congress’s investigation into the debunked document.

Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, fired-back at democrats after they accused his committee of trying to “discredit” the dossier at the heart of the liberal Russia-Trump conspiracy theory.

“I don’t know why anyone — from [California Rep.] Adam Schiff, to Vanity Fair, to Rachel Maddow — would not be curious whether or not the world’s premier law enforcement agency relied upon a dossier in connection with an investigation without vetting it,” Gowdy told the Daily Caller.

“For the life of me I don’t understand why they are focused on this […] Unless they are fearful that the bureau did rely on a piece of fiction,” he added. “The investigators on [the Intelligence Committee] have been trying for months to obtain documents about the dossier, but when you get no response, then you go from a polite request, to a firm request to a legal request.”

Gowdy’s comments come as Congressional investigators continue to probe the document; demanding information from former British spy Christopher Steele as well as Fusion GPS, the shady opposition research firm behind the dossier.
