Former Rep. Trey Gowdy went nuclear this week and called out several left-wing reporters in the mainstream media for haplessly peddling leaked snippets of information from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
During an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Gowdy accused reporters from CNN, Politico, and The New York Times of helping Schiff “peddle” the phony and unverified Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory for years.
When asked to identify reporters he believed took leaks from Schiff for stories related to the Russia investigation, Gowdy said: “Well, I hope you have a three hour show.”
“Let’s just start with Politico. Kyle Cheney is just an acolyte for Adam Schiff,” said Gowdy, referring to a senior congressional reporter at the website.
“Manu Raju from CNN,” he continued. “Nothing Schiff wanted out, made public — no leak was too low for Manu Raju and CNN.”
“Fill in the blank at The New York Times,” he added.
After the Republican-controlled Senate voted to officially acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment, Gowdy called on Schiff to lose his security clearance for “leaking” to the media.
During an interview Monday night on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, Gowdy urged top intelligence officials to stop delivering sensitive briefings to Schiff because he is “a leaker.”
“No one is above the law, apparently except whoever leaks classified information out of Adam Schiff’s committee,” Gowdy said in response to a recent intelligence briefing on Russia’s alleged 2020 election interference efforts to help Trump.
Gowdy said one way or another, Schiff will be caught for either doing the leaking himself or allowing members of his committee to do so.
