WATCH: Gowdy Blows the Lid Off Comey’s Fox News Interview, Mentions ‘Felony’

James Comey’s got at least one critic he can’t con.

In an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carson on Thursday night, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy took apart some of the former FBI director’s latest versions of the events that led up to and directly followed Comey’s firing by President Donald Trump last year.

And he all but called Comey a liar in the process.

In an appearance earlier Thursday on Fox News “Special Report,” Comey made a series of claims from his time as FBI director investigating “collusion” between the Donald Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

Comey told host Bret Baier that he isn’t sure how much of the infamous, now debunked “Trump dossier,” compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, was paid for by the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

He downplayed the importance of the dossier in obtaining a warrant to spy on Trump associate Carter Page.

Comey even denied that he had engaged in “leaking” when he secretly gave memos he’d written about his meetings with Trump to a friend to have them published in The New York Times.

Carlson zeroed in on those issues with Gowdy.

“He doesn’t remember a lot,” Carlson said. “He doesn’t remember when he first heard about the Steele dossier. He doesn’t remember who told him about the Steele dossier. Is that plausible?”

Gowdy, whose reputation for exactness in language and tenacity in grilling witnesses have earned him the nickname “Bulldog,” was having none of Comey’s latest line. It wasn’t plausible at all, he said.

“If he learned about it in the fall of 2016, and it was already known that the Democrats had picked up on that work, so, whoever briefed him… Why would you just say the Republicans started it but not also include the Democrats finished it? So that, that …”

Gowdy didn’t have to say, “that’s a lie.” Anyone listening understood it.

He then turned to how Comey minimalized the role the dossier played in the FBI’s application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court when it was seeking a warrant to investigate Trump associate Carter Page as an alleged “agent of a foreign power.”

“I’ve actually read the application, and it is just wrong,” Gowdy said. “It was an indispensable part of the application. Period.”

But it was Comey’s denial in the Baier interview that he’d “leaked” information that Gowdy hit the hardest. In Comey’s world, apparently, a “leak” only occurs when the information that’s surreptitiously released involves information that’s officially considered “classified” by the government.

Gowdy blasted that for the nonsense it is.

“The other thing that I will tell you, Tucker, that I learned tonight is Jim Comey has a definition of the word ‘leak’ that no one else has,” Gowdy said.

“What he says is a leak is what the rest of us call a felony,” Gowdy said. “Leaking is disclosing a confidential conversation which is exactly what he did.”

They were only three of the points Gowdy covered, but they blew the lid off key parts of the story Comey’s shilling as he travels the publicity circuit to peddle the memoirs he titled “A Higher Loyalty.”

He’s been getting a respectful greeting from liberals like ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, and he’s been getting grilled by interviewers like Baier.

But whatever their politics, few know the inside story about Comey the way Gowdy does, a member of the House Intelligence Committee whose years as a federal prosecutor have given him an insight into law enforcement most American civilians can’t match.

And with Gowdy, Comey has a critic he can’t con.

    Go Gowdy! People only want to make fun of Trey Gowdy’s hair. Time to look lower at the knowledge Congressman Gowdy possesses. He knows and can quote the law without looking at a cheat sheet. I wish everyone would respect him for the job he works tirelessly at. He still seeks JUSTICE FOR BENGHAZI ******And PRISON for killer Hillary!❤️

      The most trustworthy man in Washington! He learns how it is and he tells it like it is. I hope he is in a position of much higher authority someday and I will support him 100%.

        Yea quoting the witch (with a b) “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE” Leaving Americans to die in an embassy you know is going to get torn apart! Get a clue Barb, if all on the committee were like Trey Clinton would have hanged. I don’t blame him for leaving the snake infested swamp.

        You are probably an experienced Harvard trained attorney by your comments, right, Barbara?
        No you are not; you are just an ignorant left winged raging cow who doesn’t understand how and why your soulmates Hillary & Osama Obama left 4 warriors to die on the battlefield at Ben Ghazi. You are the perfect candidate to learn about life the hard way by losing a child to the pompous, conniving Shillary. I supported Osama Obama in his re-election bid, but after learning how this smooth talking fraud destroyed the very fabric of the FBI, CIA, DOJ and many other agencies, I would not support Obama were he to run for volunteer dog catcher, nor would I support your heroine Hillary were she to run for volunteer kennel cleaner. Ignorant people like you are the biggest threat this country faces because you are so easily led astray by the Pied Piper.

      The Democrats are delighted that Trey Gowdy is retiring. He commands way too much respect by both the Liberal and conservative news people. This is like loosing your number one quarterback. Your still in the game but you’re without your best man.

    Comey should be on the stand telling his lies to a prosecuter instead of being on network TV telling them to TV hosts and selling books but he will probably need more than the book money to pay for his defense lawyers

      He should be, but he’s not, he’s out in the world rambling on & on. When one does this, mistakes happen…they’re watching. However I’m not holding my breath for the results I’m wanting and the rest of the world. Everything Comey the Liar says, CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST HIM. bah..we’ll see.

    Comey’s book will soon be along side Hillary’s book. Sharing a table space in a Costco toilet paper isle near you.

    i tried to share this and Face Book said it contains a message that others consider, abusive. So they are still censuring us Conservatives and Republicans. The filthy crap they let Liberals and Democrats post about our President, I find abusive, so, will you refrain from posting it, Face Book?

      It is easy to read Comey. It is difficult to swallow what he says. Just declassify ALL of the material and let the American people make up their own mind!

    I love Trey Gowdy! He’s so honest and tells it like it is! I think he’s one of the most intelligent human beings on earth! I watched all of the Benghazi hearings and I fell in love with Mr. Gowdy! Hillary gets scared to death when Trey Gowdy starts grilling her! She gets so frustrated when she lies, just as James Comey did! It was so amazing watching Mr Gowdy as he questioned Hillary Clinton about the four men who were killed at Benghazi! She purposely left those four brave men to die at that Embassy, hoping no one would discover what she did! The Ambassador called her repeatedly for weeks to ask for security, but she never answered his pleas for help! Truly, she’s a lying WITCH!

    Let’s get this over with and get all the actors in the last administration from bottom to top locked up for all the shenanigans they have perpetrated against the American military and citizens. Mr. Gowdy, please don’t retire till the job is done. By the way, don’t buy their damn books.
