Tom Cole: ‘Trey Gowdy Is a Person of Absolute Personal Integrity’

‘This is one where you have to look at the committee chairman and look at what he’s done and make a judgment’

COLE: "It does. But it’s worth noting that, until the last couple of weeks, most of the attacks on this committee have come from the right, because it was seen as being too judicious and not being partisan. Frankly, I — this is one where you have to look at the committee chairman and look at what he’s done and make a judgment. Trey Gowdy is a person of absolute personal integrity. The fact that he’s not here, and Raul and I are, is a pretty good indication he’s not trying to exploit this for — to advance himself in any way. He has interviewed multiple witnesses, I think seven eyewitnesses, 41 witnesses, that nobody else has done. And I think he’s conducted himself well. Now, he will be under extra scrutiny going forward. But I think, at the end of the day, the committee’s work will stand or fall on its own. But I have a lot of confidence in Trey."
