In an interview with Fox News, Trey Gowdy tells President Trump to “act innocent” if he’s innocent.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) urged President Donald Trump and his lawyer on Sunday to stop flailing at special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and to let the probe continue unimpeded.
“When you are innocent … act like it,” Gowdy said on “Fox News Sunday“ when asked about Trump’s repeated Twitter attacks on Mueller, whose probe has become increasingly perilous to the president and his inner circle. “If you’ve done nothing wrong, you should want the investigation to be as fulsome and thorough as possible.”
Gowdy’s comments came a day after Trump’s attorney John Dowd called for Mueller’s investigation to be shut down. Gowdy issued the same exhortation to Dowd: “If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it.”
Trump himself spent the weekend lobbing repeated Twitter attacks at Mueller’s investigation over the weekend, including on Sunday, when he labeled Mueller’s team of prosecutors “hardened Democrats.”
“The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime,” Trump tweeted Saturday evening, naming Mueller in a tweet for the first time.
