Trey Gowdy Drops MAJOR Clue Why Release of FISA Memo Delays Will Be “EMBARRASSING” For Adam Schiff (VIDEO)
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) joined “Fox & Friends,” Tuesday, hinting things may get a lot worse for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). Gowdy, a House Intelligence committee member who voted in favor of releasing the FISA memo, said Schiff’s role in trying to keep the four-page document under wraps will be “embarrassing,” for the California Democrat.
“Look, my Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information,” Gowdy told the hosts of “Fox & Friends.”
“They did everything they could to keep us from finding this information.”
The memo’s release is set to be especially “embarrassing” for Schiff, said Gowdy, “once people realize the extent to which he went to keep them from learning any of this.”
Pressed for details, the South Carolina Republican revealed, “to help Fusion GPS,” so we can’t find out that they paid for the dossier and that they were working for the DNC. That’s a pretty big step to go to court to try to keep the American people from learning something. So look, if it were up to Adam Schiff, you wouldn’t know about Hillary Clinton’s emails, you wouldn’t know about the server, you wouldn’t have known who paid for the dossier, so I find it ironic that he has his own memo now because if it were up to him, we wouldn’t know any of it.”
Gowdy’s comments aside, Schiff appears to be taking the FISA memo’s imminent release poorly.
The California Congressman took to Twitter following a vote to release the memo and had this to say:
“Committee Republicans JUST voted to declassify their spin “memo” and prohibit release of the Democratic response in what they claimed was “the interests of full transparency.” It was transparent alright – transparently cynical and destructive.”

The Trump White House is currently in possession of the memo.
