Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) just dropped a bit of bomb while in an interview with Fox News host Martha McCallum.
He was being interviewed about fired FBI Director James Comey.

From Daily Caller:
On Fox News’ “The Story,” Gowdy cryptically told host Martha McCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.
Gowdy was asked if he was implying that the Clintons pressured Comey, to which he said no, but that he believed Comey wanted to “safeguard the integrity of the investigation” and “I probably ought to just leave it right there.”
Gowdy said “all you see is this meeting on the tarmac” [the Bill Clinton – Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting on the airport tarmac in Phoenix] and “Jim Comey had access to additional information” that we do not have.
Gowdy knows what the information is and so believes it was right for Comey to remove the decision from the Department of Justice on Hillary Clinton.
“But he [Comey] made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
What more was there?
There has of course been a report about an email found by the FBI from a Democratic operative who indicated that the Department of Justice and Loretta Lynch would not allow a prosecution to go through against Hillary Clinton.
But that’s already out there, and Gowdy is suggesting his information is something we “don’t know now” and “may never know” because it is classified.
Now, the proper process if Loretta Lynch was compromised by the tarmac meeting would have been to give the Clinton decision to the her deputy, not for Comey to take it. Unless he believed that that wasn’t even possible, because that option was compromised as well.
Not sure why any of this would be classified but it would be very interesting to find out what the other “entanglements” are…
