Former chairman of the House Monitoring Committee and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy responded Friday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, who ordered an internal review of the Michael Flynn probe by asking, “What the hell have they done?”
“It’s been four years …” Gowdy said of “History.” “I mean, this happened in 2016 and 2017. So I mean, it’s not like him [Wray] just learned from the wrongdoing. We just learned from it, or some of your viewers just learned from it. He’s known about it since the day he became FBI director. “

The FBI announced Friday that the “post-action review” ordered by Wray will have a dual purpose: to evaluate the FBI’s role in the case and determine if any “current employees are dealing with misconduct”, and identify whether any “improvements” to FBI procedures may be justified.
McCallum then asked Gowdy for calls from both parties to release transcripts of Flynn’s calls with the then Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak in the transition period between the Obama administration and the Trump administration in late 2016.
“I think when the transcripts are released you will be bored out of your mind and you will wonder, ‘This is criminal? This is enough to target a three-star general? This conversation?'” Said Gowdy. “Those that are available, I’ve read. I think the FBI told us they didn’t catch all the calls, some of them they missed. I don’t know what was on them, but you’ll be bored you out of your mind. “

The FBI’s decision comes just two weeks after the Department of Justice moved to file its case against Flynn following the release of internal notes, which raised questions about the nature of the investigation that led to Flyns filing a lawsuit in December 2017 lie to the FBI.
