In an interview with Martha McCallum Thursday, Trey Gowdy said that if he were President Donald Trump, he would think that the FBI was out to get him, too.
The remarks were in response to Trump saying in a speech about his impeachment acquittal that if he hadn’t fired FBI Director James Comey, a lot of the information about what the FBI did to him would never have come out.
“You have James Comey, who thinks impeachment is too good for him,” Gowdy said. “You have John Brennan that thinks he should be ‘in the dustbin of history.’ You have Andy McCabe, who — after Comey was fired — launched another investigation into Trump. Martha, if I were Donald Trump, I would think the FBI was out to get me, too.”
It seems to be a form of gaslighting for Democrats to suggest that Trump is paranoid about what he calls the deep state, when so many career officials at the highest levels of government have tried to destroy him.
As the old saying goes, “It’s not paranoia if they are really out to get you.”
