Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., on Wednesday issued a statement of support for the Justice Department inspector general following President Donald Trump's criticism.

"I have had a number of interactions with Inspector General Michael Horowitz, including as recently as earlier this month," the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman said in a statement.

"He has been fair, fact centric, and appropriately confidential with his work."

"He was confirmed by the U.S. Senate without a single dissent. I have complete confidence in him and hope he is given the time, the resources and the independence to complete his work," Gowdy added.

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump questioned the actions of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Horowitz over alleged abuse of authority.
