Sometimes it’s very easy to tell that Trey Gowdy used to be a prosecutor and this was one of them. He questioned Rod Rosenstein of the Department of Justice Wednesday. He was particularly interested in the obvious political bias of some of the people on Mueller’s team. He was not pleased, to say the least.

Gowdy Slams Allegedly ‘Unbiased’ Special Counsel [VIDEO]
Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy aggressively questioned the presence of a special counsel in the Russia investigation while questioning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday.
During the House Judiciary hearing, Gowdy noted that the entire purpose of appointing a special counsel is to get rid of conflicts of interest. However, there seem to be numerous conflicts of interest on Robert Mueller’s team.
“The reason we have special counsel is because of a conflict of interest,” he said. “We don’t like conflicts of interest because it undermines people’s confidence in both the process and the result.”
“And then, lo and behold, those that are supposed to make sure there are no conflicts of interest seem to have a bit of their own,” Gowdy declared.
Watch the video, this is brutal:
Gowdy would be a great pick for Attorney General or head of the FBI the next time one of those roles is vacant.
