Gowdy suggested that the interview should be completely tortured but then “scrub it for classified information … and then release it to the public.” He said that, in the end, the corporate court committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, but if he was in charge, Gowdy said he would make a “formal offer” to Comey.
Goodlatte also convicted former Advocate General Loretta Lynch.
“While the Congressional Courts Authority is wide, it does not cover the right to abuse closed hearings as a political stunt to promote political opposites to the legislative agenda,” said David Kelley, a Comey attorney last week. 1
