Former Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, who represented the state of South Carolina, laid down the truth when it comes to the 2020 presidential election.
The former Congressman sounded the alarm and said he was skeptical of a New York Times story that said Russia wants President Donald Trump to be reelected.
He said he did not believe that anyone could possibly think that Russia would prefer Trump over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democrat Socialist who honeymooned in Moscow during the era of the Soviet Union and has sung the praises of communist regimes.
He also took aim at California Rep. Adam Schiff, the head of the intelligence committee, for being the source of the Times’ story.
“[N]umber one, I don’t know anyone who really thinks that Russia prefers Donald Trump to win over ‘comrade’ Sanders,” he said.. “I don’t know a soul that really thinks Russia wants Donald Trump to be the president instead of the guy that honeymooned in Russia. Number two, is this the same intelligence community that told us it was a spontaneous reaction to a video in Libya and the same intelligence community that promised us weapons of mass destruction, and the same intelligence community that relied on the dossier?”
“They gather information, and they make assessments,” he said. “Then they give those assessments, but unfortunately, you give them to people like Adam Schiff who leak like sieves. This never should have been made public, and that’s why the president is upset — not at what the intelligence community has found but the fact that Adam Schiff has a beeline to The New York Times when it’s negative information about Donald Trump.
Sanders won the Nevada caucus on Saturday and it looks like his campaign is unstoppable as the candidates head into South Carolina and Super Tuesday.
But on Friday it was reported that Russia appears to be helping Sanders win the Democrat primary and that he is, in fact, their candidate of choice, which makes sense as he is essentially a communist.
“I don’t care, frankly, who [Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants to be president,” the candidate said. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president, I will make sure that you do.
He may not care, but, if you believe the intelligence community as Democrats have insisted we do, Russia does.
“In 2016, Russia used Internet propaganda to sow division in our country, and my understanding is that they are doing it again in 2020. Some of the ugly stuff on the Internet attributed to our campaign may well not be coming from real supporters,” he said.
No Bernie, your supporters are actually that evil.
