Trey Gowdy ‘surprised’ Trump Jr. interview spent 7 hours focusing on Trump Tower meeting, ‘nothing illegal or improper’ gleaned

(Worthy News) – Rep. Trey Gowdy said he was “surprised” that the House Intelligence Committee interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday spent seven hours focusing on the brief meeting that took place in Trump Tower last summer between Trump campaign members and Russian officials.

For all the time it took, the South Carolina Republican said, the committee gleaned “nothing illegal or improper” in regards to Trump Jr.’s actions related to the meeting which has made him a focus of investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“I think only a bunch of lawyers could drag out a 20-minute meeting into a seven-hour deposition,” Gowdy told Fox News Wednesday evening.

“We are talking about a 20-minute meeting from which no information was gleaned at Trump Tower, so how you get seven hours out of that for a bunch of guys and gals that aren’t paid by the hour,” he added, “it was quite a sight to see.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
