FBI Director James Comey appeared before Congress for the third time.
Once again, he fumbled through another session, trying to explain away the reasons why he overlooked Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior.
And Trey Gowdy just destroyed his answers.
Many Americans believe Hillary Clinton knowingly transmitted classified information on her private email server.
Suspicions were raised when the FBI handed out five grants of immunity to Hillary’s underlings – including former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, who was the mastermind behind the private server.
Many wondered why immunity was given to so many people and no charges were filed.
Gowdy echoed those concerns in the hearing preview on Fox News.

Gowdy continued to press the issue during the hearing.
“GOP lawmakers focused in particular on the Justice Department’s decision to give a form of immunity to Clinton lawyers Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson to obtain computers containing emails related to the case.
“Laptops don’t go to the Bureau of Prisons,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said. “The immunity was not for the laptop, it was for Cheryl Mills.”
The FBI director repeated an explanation he gave for the first time at a Senate hearing Tuesday, that the deal to get the laptops was wise because subpoenaing computers from an attorney would be complex and time consuming.”
“Anytime you know you’re subpoenaing a laptop from a lawyer that involved a lawyer’s practice of law, you know you’re getting into a big megillah,” Comey said.
Some twitter users applauded Gowdy and mocked Comey’s testimony.
Gowdy just made a great point. How could Comey ever prove intent if everyone who knew Hillary’s intent was given immunity?

@davidharsanyi I can’t believe how Comey got upset because Gowdy lost faith in the FBI. Wonder why that is…Duh?!

Gowdy spoke for many Americans when he declared he has lost faith in the FBI.
Anyone else would have faced serious consequences – including criminal charges.
But Hillary Clinton – because of her position of power and her endorsement from Obama to succeed him as President – walks free.
