Trey Gowdy: Committee Probing Russia Ties Needs Access to Documents

(Fox News)

Rep. Trey Gowdy, the congressman overseeing the House Intelligence probe into allegations Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and had contact with President Donald Trump's team during the campaign, said Wednesday the committee "needs access to the documents."

"It's a work in progress. We are not there yet. But I am optimistic that they understand we can't do our jobs without the documents," Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, said during an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News.

When asked if the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence was getting what it needed from the White House, Gowdy said yes, but only in "some aspects."

"I wouldn't say the White House, the administration, as a whole, we are going to need more documents. I think they are aware of that. Mike Pompeo is not only a friend but a former colleague. He has pledged his support, I'm sure Admiral Rogers at the NSA will as well. To the extent there is an ongoing criminal investigation, it makes it a little tougher for DOJ to share everything."

Gowdy also said former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan will testify.

"We are going to speak to them, whether it will be a public setting or a private setting, I think that will be determined by chairman Conaway and ranking member Adam Schiff," he said.
