Democrats love playing the “gotcha game” on Trump administration officials by acting like they are being dishonest or unethical in the way they handle their duties. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pulled the “he should resign” tactic on Republican Devin Nunes, who is investigating the alleged Russian ties to the Trump election campaign.
Schumer charged that Nunes had compromised himself in the way he obtained information pertaining to the case and could not be impartial. Democrats use stunts like this attempting to trip up Trump administration officials any way they can to throw roadblocks in the president’s path and prevent him from moving forward on his agenda.
That’s when Trey Gowdy stepped in to defend Nunes during a television interview on FOX News.
From the FOX News report:
Gowdy was speaking with Fox News’ Martha McCallum, and argued that Nunes has done nothing wrong. “I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman ought to do. When you have a source that has information, you handle that information safely, securely, which is exactly what he did. I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be more interested in authenticity and the reliability of the underlying data and not the means by which it was acquired.”
Gowdy was just getting started though; he then insisted that it didn’t matter where the information came from, as long as it’s true.
“Whether it was the White House or Waffle House, what difference does it make if the information is reliable and authentic? It just so happens that Devin had to do it this way. So, we’re not going to take advice from Chuck Schumer on who our chairpeople ought to be,” he stated.

Trey Gowdy’s point is that Schumer and the rest of the Democrats are more interested in fussing about the circumstances of how the information was obtained rather than it’s reliability and whether it can be trusted.
So far, there has been nothing to suggest that Nunes has been anything but completely professional and unbiased in his investigations.
The whole thing just shows how desperate the Democrats are to undermine Trump’s presidency any way they can!
