Rep. Gowdy questions conflicts of interest - but my mind is elsewhere
I don’t know exactly how I ended up there, but I’m from South Carolina, and into legal stuff, and Trey Gowdy can provide some decent entertainment, so I was watching this video in the tweet below, and around the 2:58 mark Gowdy is talking about conflicts of interest, and says:
“… and then we have a Senior Agent assigned to inv—“ — and there’s a glitch right there — “—Secretary Clinton’s email, helped draft the exoneration letter where we changed the language from ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless, interviewed Secretary Clinton in an interview I’ve never seen, and I doubt you have either in your career as a prosecutor …”
What happens when people who are supposed to cure the conflict of interest have even greater conflicts of interest than those they replace?https://t.co/s6nmJltHOe

Yeah, yeah, I’m real assured about the investigation blah, blah, blah
What caught my ear was “… helped draft the exoneration letter where we changed the language from ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless' …” It’s not like Rep. Gowdy to use words casually, he’s a lawyer too …
So first off — WE — ? He said we. And then he continues, “changed the language from ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless’!
“We changed the language from ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless’!
I don’t know what to say, or think, about that “slip” that changed the language from a legal term to a vague non-legal term ...
So I realize I should be paying attention to the conflicts of interest, and what’s going on with special counsel Mueller, and whatever, whatever, but now I'm just curious about the time where, as Rep. Gowdy said, "we changed the language from ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless,’ in the exoneration letter" ... I'm also curious about the odd interview Rep. Gowdy has never seen before. I'll probably never know ... Anyway, in related news from this afternoon, the circus goes on:
