Gowdy Rips Schiff: ‘I Have Reached No Conclusions’ and I Advise You To Do the Same
“I’m going to address a couple of things that you said and then recognize myself, because he invoked the family members of the four, Madam Secretary, and partially this will be for your benefit also. But I want to specifically address the family members that are here. There is no theory of the prosecution, Mr. Schiff, because there is no prosecution.
There’s a very big difference between a prosecution where you already have reached a conclusion and you are just trying to prove it to people. This is an investigation which is why it’s so sad that nowhere in that stack that you just put up there or the e-mails of Secretary Clinton, the e-mails of the ambassador, 50,000 pages worth of documents, eyewitnesses. That’s the real tragedy. To the family and the friends, when you are told that there have been seven previous investigations and an ARB, you should immediately ask why did you miss so many witnesses, why did you miss so many documents.
This is not a prosecution, Mr. Schiff. You and I are both familiar with them. I have reached no conclusions and I would advise you to not reach any conclusions either until we reach the end. There are 20 more witnesses. So I agree not to reach any conclusions if you will do the same.”
