“It is kind of ironic that the people in charge of investigating the law and executing the law would violate the law. Make no mistake, disclosing grand jury material is a violation of the law. So, as a former prosecutor, I’m disappointed that you and I are having the conversation because somebody violated their oath of secrecy.”
– House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, speaking about Special Counsel Robert Mueller having leaked information to the media concerning grand jury charges filed in the investigation into Russia’s influence in the the 2016 presidential election. Gowdy was speaking with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
Mueller is a close friend of the now-dismissed FBI Director, James Comey, and has a team of lawyers with financial ties to Democratic candidates.
