Gee, why didn’t Trump tweet about this?

A senior House Republican who was part of a highly classified Justice Department briefing last week said on Tuesday that the FBI acted properly when it deployed an informant to gather information from advisers to President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said last week’s briefing, convened by the Justice Department under pressure from Trump, convinced him even further that the FBI’s information-gathering steps were appropriate.

“I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got,” he said in an interview on Fox News. He added that the information also suggested that the effort had “nothing to do with Donald Trump.”

You know sometimes it is hard to get a handle on Trey Gowdy.

On the one hand, he chased those Benghazi conspiracy theories like he was on the trail of the Holy Grail, even though he MUST have known it was a complete waste of time, but then he comes out on the right side of this “Spygate” nonsense as if logic were consistently his guiding star.

And as it turns out, he is not alone.

Judge Andrew Napolitano called Donald Trump’s “Spygate” — which is otherwise known as the allegation that an undercover FBI agent spied on the president’s 2016 campaign in an attempt to undermine it — a “baseless” claim with “no evidence” backing it.

Napolitano, who made the comments while appearing on The Story With Martha MacCallum today, explained why he thinks the evidence for “Spygate” is lacking with the following statement:

“The allegations by Mayor Giuliani over the weekend which would lead to us believe that the Trump people think that the FBI had an undercover agent who inveigled his way into the campaign and was there as a spy on the campaign seem to be baseless. There is no evidence for that whatsoever. But the other allegation about this professor whose name we are not supposed to mention, talking to people on the periphery of the campaign, that is standard operating procedure in intelligence gathering and in criminal investigations.”

Damn! Losing both Trey Gowdy and Andrew Napolitano on the same day, that has GOT to leave a mark.

    I saw him on ‘Forensic Files’ and he seemed like a logical and fair minded person. Then he ended up in Congress and Benghazi happened.
    Now he sounds reasonable, sane, and honest again. Weird.

    Trey Gowdy wants to be re-elected. That’s all.

      I thought he wasn’t running for re election, he wants to go back to prosecuting.
