GOWDY: "I helped draft it. And I would tell my friends at the F.B.I., 'Everything I got that went into that memo, I got from you. So I don't know why you need to see my memo. You got really good lawyers working for the Department of Justice —"
SMITH: "But why not release it, congressman?"
GOWDY: "Well, I drafted it for my colleagues. I didn’t draft it for the F.B.I. The F.B.I. can do their own memo. They got more lawyers than we have on the House Intel Committee. I drafted it for my colleagues so they could see some of the documents, and they are all classified which is why I can’t release it to the public without a vote."
