Gowdy Responds to Harry Reid’s Slam on Comey: ‘I Did Not Know Mormons Use Drugs’

Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) fired back at Harry Reid last night after the Senate Minority Leader suggested that James Comey broke federal laws with his announcement about Hillary Clinton.

In a letter Reid put out last night, he accused the FBI director of practicing a “double standard” and using his position to spread negative innuendo in order to influence the election. Fox’s Bret Baier asked Gowdy for his thoughts on Sunday night, to which, the congressman wondered if Reid is the one who’s really under the influence.

“Thank God he’s leaving, is my initial reaction,” Gowdy said. “My second reaction is: I did not know Mormons used drugs. And anyone who is capable of sending out that press release has to be under the influence of something.”

Howdy went on to say that Clinton authored her own actions by having a private server while she worked as the secretary of state.

“The person responsible for this fact pattern is Secretary Clinton,” Gowdy said. “Jim Comey did not tell her to use her private server. He did not say to mislead the public about whether or not you turned over all of your work emails. And he certainly didn’t say, ‘Secretary Clinton, why don’t you say you neither sent nor received classified information?'”
