Outgoing GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy didn’t hold back Friday while commenting on former FBI director James Comey’s recent “tell all” memoir; saying the book was “beneath the dignity of the offices that he held.”
Gowdy was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to weigh-in on the bureau chief’s anti-Trump book, adding that no one’s done a “better job” of “politicizing the FBI” than James Comey.
“I can’t think of anyone who’s done a better job of politicizing the FBI than he has in the last 36 to 48 hours, by talking about tanning bed goggles and the length of a tie,” Gowdy said
“I’m really disappointed, whether or not the intelligence community vetted this book,” Gowdy said. “I hope he let them do it so he’s not disseminating classified information. My guess is he did.”
“But the writing of the book in general and then some of the things that he’s talking about are just frankly beneath the dignity of some really important offices he once held,” Gowdy concluded.
