James Comey has 'no one to blame but himself' if he's concerned about new Barr probe, Trey Gowdy says

If James Comey is concerned about the findings of a review of the Russia investgation's origins, he can only blame himself, Trey Gowdy claimed.

Gowdy, a former South Carolina Republican congressman, said during a Tuesday appearance on "The Story" that the former FBI director has "no one to blame but himself" if he has an issue with Attorney General William Barr appointing a prosecutor to look into the origins of the Russia investigation.

He referenced a Washington Post op-ed written by Comey, before going on to claim some at the FBI during Comey's tenure did things the average bureau official would not.

"Comey goes on in that op-ed to talk about the good men and women of the FBI. And there are lots of good women and men at the FBI. Most of them would never target a political campaign and hope that it lost 100 million to nothing," Gowdy, a Fox News contributor, said.

"Most FBI agents would never belittle political supporters of someone else and say they could smell them at a Walmart. They would never promise to stop a political candidate. They would never say they were destabilizing for the country," he continued, referencing contents of text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau ex-lawyer Lisa Page.

"Comey has no one to blame but himself," Gowdy added.

"Most FBI agents wouldn't do any of what I describe. Unfortunately, the ones he picked did all of that."
