Trey Gowdy Torches Rosenstein During Hearing On Russian Investigation
by Chris White
South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy criticized investigators Thursday for not moving faster on their investigation into the extent of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
“If you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the Trump campaign, present it to the damn grand jury,” Gowdy, a Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, told FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a congressional hearing.

“Whatever you got, finish it the hell up,” Gowdy said, adding: “Right now this country is being torn apart.” Gowdy is not the only Republican seeking answers from Wray and Rosenstein.
Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, for one, is demanding the Department of Justice release more documents related to the probe.
“We are sick and tired of the Department of Justice giving us the runaround,” he said. “As a separate branch of government, we have a right to get information.”
“We want the full weight of the United States House of Representatives behind this resolution saying we are entitled, again, as a separate and equal branch of government, to get the information we need to do our oversight duty,” Jordan added.
