Dan Bongino called out Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., on Fox News with Laura Ingraham Wednesday night.

On Tuesday, Gowdy dismissed the possibility that the FBI’s investigation of President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was anything inappropriate. Gowdy told Fox News that he is “even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do” in its secret investigation.

In response, Bongino told Ingraham, “Gowdy’s appearance was disgraceful.” He added that Gowdy’s statements were not only “completely out of line,” but also “factually incorrect.”

“According to Gowdy, the FBI ran it by the book, how the Americans would have wanted them run the investigation. Really? So why didn’t they notify Congress for eight months, Laura – eight months – about the investigation, when prior procedure was to notify Congress quarterly on sensitive investigations?” Bongino asked.

He also pointed out the leaks of significant information by the investigators to the New York Times and the Washington Post, in October and January.

“Is that an example, Mr. Gowdy, of a finely tuned investigation, run like the Americans would have wanted?”

“He did nothing but feed the leftist propaganda machine yesterday,” Bongino concluded.

Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also made statements on Tuesday attempting to dismiss the scandal.
