Here is just another example of why we love Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). He doesn't hold back and relentlessly digs for answers. In his latest hearing on Wednesday, Gowdy pressed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for answers concerning a conflict of interest and blatant bias within the FBI against President Donald Trump.
Remind me of what the hell is going on here.
The media uncovered a series of anti-Trump text messages from agents at the FBI. These weren't ordinary text messages, they were politically charged messages from agents Peter Strzok, Andrew Weissmann, and Bruce Ohr.
Why is this a problem?
The FBI agents plotted and conspired to change the outcome of the election.
According to Fox News, "News of FBI agent Peter Strzok’s removal from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation due to his anti-Trump texts has raised concerns over the politicization of the probe and the FBI itself."
“The reason we have Special Counsel is because of conflicts of interest,” Gowdy said in his testimony at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday.
“We don’t like conflicts of interest because it undermines people’s confidence in both the process and the result. And lo and behold! Those that are supposed to make sure there are no conflicts of interest seem to have a bit of their own.”
What the FBI did when they sent these text messages "is the opposite of what you want in an objective, dispassionate, neutral FBI," Gowdy said.

And finally the most poignant point of all made by Gowdy was his demand for answers for his constituents:
There are a lot of issues I’d like to ask you about, Mr. Deputy Attorney General. We had the terrorist incident in New York this week. We have 702 reauthorization that is pending in Congress. Gun violence. The opioid epidemic. Criminal justice reform. But when I go home to South Carolina this weekend, trust me when I tell you that no one is going to ask me about any of those issues. They’re going to ask me what in the hell is going on with the Department of Justice and the FBI.
