Rowdy Gowdy | Not Taking Schiff No More


GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina dismissed Democrats’ criticisms of the recently released Republican memo detailing surveillance abuse within the FBI and Department of Justice, during an interview Sunday on “Face The Nation.”

“I get that Adam Schiff and others are worried about what’s not in my memo,” Gowdy said on “Face The Nation.” “I wish that they were equally concerned about what’s not in the FISA application”

2nd Dossier | 2nd Memo (More Shoes Dropping)

SARA CARTER: The second memo that the House Intelligence Committee is putting together. We’re still waiting for the Inspector General’s report that is going to be coming out. That’s going to be directed at Andrew McCabe, now former director Andrew McCabe, and others. And I think they’re terrified what’s going to come out here.

Here’s what we know. There was a second dossier that was put together by a person named Cody Shearer. He is a very controversial activist, a former reporter who worked with the Clintons in the past. And the FBI was also using this second dossier as part of what they were doing to back up the other dossier by Christopher Steele, an unverified dossier. And we believe Chistopher Steele was also sending information to the State Department in bits and snippets. But I think the most important thing here and one of the things they are going to be looking at very closely are the leaks. There were a number of leaks out unverified information by possibly senior members of the Obama administration. (GATEWAY PUNDIT)

A `Memogate` Throw-back

NewsBusters says this about “Memogate”:

…The dishonesty here is extraordinary.

The documents Rather presented that fateful night in September 2004 were clearly forgeries. Not one person has come forward since proving they weren’t.

Yet here he is nine years later saying on national television, “No question the story was true.”

And Morgan didn’t challenge him at all.

Is this really what passes for journalism in our country today?

“To salvage some credibility from his debunked story, Rather is still clinging to the “fake but accurate” line too. The problem is that without specific evidence about specific offenses, the story that Bush received preferential treatment in the TANG was only borderline interesting.” ~ the only thing Charles Johnson said this year worth a hill of beans

Here is Michelle Malkin throwin’ down the gauntlet in 2005:

Gearing up for the rumored release of the CBS Rathergate report today or early next week, here are some quick, handy links:
