Trey Gowdy lobbed a vehement criticism of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for what he called a “wildly stupid trial strategy.”
The former congressman from South Carolina made the comments on Fox News on Thursday during the third day of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate.
“Yeah, Brett, Adam’s ordinarily not that stupid but when you tell the jury, the Senate, on one day that they’re corrupt and then you tell the American people they cannot be trusted to pick the commander in chief, that’s just a wildly stupid trial strategy,” Gowdy responded.
“Well Adam Schiff has done exactly the same thing,” he continued.
“American people, we don’t trust you to factor this in in November, so we need a hundred senators to decide that,” Gowdy mocked, in the voice of Democrats he was criticizing.
“It is a wildly stupid trial strategy, only surpassed by [New York Democratic Rep.] Jerry Nadler’s insulting of the jury two days ago,” he concluded.
