Gowdy hints Sidney Blumenthal leaked info to dossier author Steele

EXCLUSIVE – Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., strongly implied to Fox News Tuesday night that Clinton family confidant Sidney Blumenthal was a key link in a chain of information that helped create the controversial Trump-Russia dossier.

Gowdy told Fox News' "The Story" that "when you hear who ... one of the sources of that information is, you're going to think, 'Oh my gosh, I've heard that name somewhere before.'"

When host Martha MacCallum asked if he was referring to Blumenthal, Gowdy answered, "That'd be really warm. You're warm, yeah."

Gowdy, who is among a host of Republican lawmakers not running for re-election is November, played a key role in the drafting of a recently declassified memo detailing alleged surveillance abuses by the federal government. The memo took specific issue with the FBI's use of information from the dossier, which was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and claimed to reveal deep ties between President Trump and Russian officials.

It's unfortunate that Mr. Gowdy is calling it quits in DC, but we can't really blame him for fleeing from the swamp.

He will be greatly missed. He was a pit bull for the republican party. One of the good guys. Just think if we had more leaders like him. One who stands for truth and the American people. I can understand why he is leaving and can't blame him a bit. Wish him great successes. God bless him and his family.
