Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) laughed when he was asked about a Democrat’s concerns over testimony being produced in the investigation into Russian election interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign.
Here’s the video of Gowdy’s reaction:

Here’s what he said:
“He has said all along that there’s absolutely no collusion, that he has nothing to hide,” Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum said of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. “Was there anything in today’s testimony that changed that?”
“Nothing, there is no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians, between the Trump campaign and the Russians, even between, frankly between hangers-on and wannabes on the campaign,” Gowdy responded. “Now we’re not through interviewing witnesses, but the only person who says he’s seen evidence of collusion is Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and somehow or another, he saw it before we even began.
“Other than that, no one can cite to any evidence of collusion which is why they’re now pivoting, Martha, to the obstruction of justice claim and away from collusion,” he added.
“Did Adam Schiff find anything to be concerned with Corey Lewandowski today?” MacCallum asked, eliciting laughter from Gowdy.
“Oh, Adam can always find something to be concerned with, even if he has to manufacture it,” he said.
“His biggest problem is that he got out in front of his skis,” he explained, “and said that he had evidence of collusion that was more than circumstantial, and there ain’t none.”
