VIDEO: Trey Gowdy: ‘Nobody cares what Congress does … ‘
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
Former congressman Trey Gowdy called House Democrats “feckless and irrelevant” Wednesday in response to a vote to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress.
“Barr is ostensibly being held in contempt for not turning over documents he has no legal obligation to turn over. In fact, it would be against the law to do so,” Gowdy said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The House Wednesday voted to hold Barr and Ross in criminal contempt, saying they were stonewalling congressional probes into the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Gowdy said contempt of Congress didn’t matter after Tuesday, when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi violated House rules.
“Nobody cares what Congress does. What we saw yesterday — they can’t even enforce their own House rules against their own members. So, there used to be a stigma attached to being held in contempt of Congress. There ain’t no more,” Gowdy said. “So, I would tell Bill Barr, ‘Your reputation as an incredible lawyer is intact. Don’t give it another thought.'”
