Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a leading Republican member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told Breitbart News Daily on Wednesday that he thinks that there is a connection between several prominent Barack Obama-era scandals and the latest disclosures about corruption at the Department of Justice and FBI.
According to Matthew Boyle of Breitbart, Gosar was questioned during the interview on the SiriusXM 125 Patriot Channel show about the corruption on display in the release of the now famous memo from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that described FISA court abuses by the FBI and DOJ in the lead-up to the 2016 election and in the months that ensued now President Donald Trump’s win during the transition and even during his presidency.
Boyle goes on to state that all came before the release of new text messages between senior FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that detailed how Obama was directing everything himself on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Trump probe. Gosar explained how this same corruption that is today being further uncovered first revealed itself in the initial days of the administration of now former President Barack Obama, with the Operation Fast and Furious scandal then the IRS and Benghazi scandals—all of which had complex levels of DOJ and FBI participation.
“If you don’t think the [Operation] Fast and Furious—attacking the Second Amendment—along with Operation Choke Point, you know that sacred amendment that holds our government accountable and protection for all the other amendments, if you don’t think Benghazi and the lack of accountability when they knew something was going to come, if you don’t think that the IRS and the attacking of your adversaries financially, and the unmasking are unrelated things, think again,” Gosar said.
“You know, this previous administration—the Obama administration—micromanaged everything out of the White House. And I challenge people, remember the Syrian strikes that were actually handpicked and dictated by the president at that time. This gentleman was involved in everything. That’s where all this leads. When you look at the cover-up with the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, it gets—it should have pointed out exactly what we’ve been talking about, that this was the weaponization of our Justice Department not only to cover up for the previous administration and the wrongdoing and ills of them and those associated with them, but also to attack a sitting president—actually a candidate at the time, then president-elect and then a current, sitting president you know of an opposition party. This is outrageous, and you are exactly right we have got to get to the bottom of this so that people are held accountable because that is what America wants. But it’s going to be a hard, slow slog trying to get this information out. But it’s coming, as witnessed by the memo from Devin Nunes and as witnessed by Grassley and Graham and new revelations and the Inspector General—don’t forget Michael Horowitz sitting out there as well.”
