Outgoing GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy had some harsh words for congressional investigators over the weekend, saying Congress was absolutely “incapable” of policing themselves and “are just not serious” in getting to the bottom of the various scandals plaguing the nation.
Gowdy was speaking with CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday when he blasted the ongoing probes making their way through Congress; adding that federal investigators often “make up their mind first and then go in search of evidence.”
“Congress has proven itself incapable of conducting serious investigations,” said the Republican representative. “Congressional investigations, they’re terrible.”
“I would be telling you that even if I were staying in Congress, they’re just not serious. Serious investigations don’t leak. Serious investigations don’t make up their mind first and then go in search of the evidence to validate,” he added.
Rep. Gowdy announced his plans to leave the House of Representatives earlier this year, saying he intends to return to the private sector at the end of his term this December.
