On Monday, former Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy and Fox News contributor was interviewed on Hannity, where he gave some chilling comments regarding the origins of the probe that started the Russia investigation fiasco.
With the FISA abuse investigation underway, Gowdy was asked for his views on its developments and told Hannity that what went on with the Steele dossier was “even worse” than what he described and to “look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December of 2016.”

Worse than covering up that Hillary paid for the dossier and that all evidence against the Trump campaign was unprovable, Gowdy claims that there was absolutely ZERO effort put in to even trying to legitly seek out verifiable evidence against Trump.
The probe, according to Gowdy, originated purely out of malice for Trump and was motivated solely by the desire to spy on his campaign!
Fox News has more on what Gowdy has to say during his interview with Hannity:
Former congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on "Hannity" Monday where he reacted to Attorney General William Barr appointing a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation, saying investigators had an "easy road map."
"This is the fourth person that's been charged with investigating the origins of the Russia probe. So I'm more interested in how quickly they do it and how effectively they do it more than the numbers. If this is the right person to do it, more power to them. There's an easy road map to follow," Gowdy told host Sean Hannity.
John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, will conduct the inquiry, a source told Fox News. The move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance -- as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors.
Durham will determine if intelligence collection efforts targeting the Trump campaign were "lawful and appropriate."
The Washington Examiner also commented:
Former Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Monday there is damning evidence out there for investigators to find as they examine the FBI's conduct in the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation.
Top Republicans are talking up classified documents they believe will root out FBI misconduct in their use of an unverified dossier to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. With Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz in the final stages of a FISA abuse investigation, lawmakers have referred to him newly revealed information about the dossier's author.
Gowdy, now a Fox News contributor, was brought on Sean Hannity's show to discuss the development. Hannity asked if Gowdy was convinced there was fraud committed against the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, noting how the FBI did not disclose dossier author Christopher Steele's anti-Trump bias and Democratic benefactors.
"I can tell you it is even worse than what you described," Gowdy replied. "It is what you described, in addition to the withholding of exculpatory information."
Gowdy said the FBI made no effort to corroborate the dossier until after it was used in the application and a renewal.
