Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) – a congressperson I like more and more every time I hear him.
Speaking about the possible wiretapping of Donald Trump’s offices, during Sunday’s Face The Nation show on CBS, Mr. Gowdy said this to host John Dickerson:
“The incidental collection of U.S. persons happens. What I wish some of my friends on the other side would be a little more outraged about is the political use of that unmasking.
“I understand we collect U.S. citizens, but we don’t read about those U.S. citizens on the front page of The New York Times and The Washington Post.
“That, in addition to threatening these surveillance programs, is also a felony.
“All of this is important, John, every bit of it. The felonious dissemination of classified information is the only thing we know for sure is a crime, and it would be nice if we showed the same level of interest in that.”
Very important words. Very important point.
And, of course, continuing to be ignored by mainstream media, which are far more invested in taking down the Trump administration than trifling matters such as felonies committed against its members.
Trey Gowdy wins Quote Of The Day honors for doing what he does so well: speaking the truth in plain, easily understandable, terms.
And mainstream media wins dishonors for doing what they do so well: ignoring the plain-spoken truth when it doesn’t fit their political agenda.
