Gowdy Outraged, Slams Media Over Coats Leaks

An outraged Rep. Trey Gowdy on Thursday slammed the news media for leaks of DNI Dan Coats testimony to the House Intelligence Committee "before the transcript's even dry."

"Eight hours ago, Adam Schiff and I looked Dan Coats in the eyes – and we assured him that there would be no selective leaking of his testimony to us," the South Carolina Republican told Erin Burnett on CNN.

"And, I'll be damned if eight hours later there aren't three different leaks of what he told us.

"If anyone is questioning why congressional investigations aren't taken seriously, and are viewed as political exercises, you need to look no further than the fact that we looked one of our intelligence officials in the eyes and promised him there would be no selective leaking," Gowdy said.

"And here I'm being asked about it, not even eight hours later."

"There were eight people in the room," the representative said. "I can tell you who it was not."

Because there seems to be no punishment for leaking and the because the swamp protects the leakers it will continue.

MANDATORY polygraph testing and if you fail you are off the committee and the fact you failed is made public.
