U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy grills FBI's Comey

Watch South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy direct a barrage of very direct, yes-or-no questions about Clinton and her email server to FBI Director Comey. Stick with the video, which has a Fox News intro:

"Gus, just FYI, if I am correct, FBI Director Comey has an appointed position for 10 years from 2013 when he was appointed, that helps to kept him apolitical and not in fear of losing his position.  The President can't fire him, he (Trump) can and will fire Loretta Lynch because she serves at the pleasure of the President after a confirmation process.  I do agree that Comey blew and over stepped his authority to not charge, but that helps us get Trump in.  She was as guilty as guilty could be.  There is no way they could have interviewed her in a thorough way in 3.5 hours.  Heck, we interviewed and interrogated shoplifters longer than that let alone a suspect that you had 1 years worth of evidence to query.  That was so orchestrated that it insulting to see.  No more lawyers in charge of any office.  Never asked he about her public statements and Congressional testimony that she denied having and knowledge of anything.  She allowed non classified attorneys access to read and destroy her super classified emails.  Comey said he didn't expand his query into her perjury because he didn't have a referral from congress.  That is hogwash.  If during your investigation you find out that the suspect might have committed another crime, you most certainly look in to it.  You don't overlook the homicide because you were investigating a burglary.   This stunk to high heaven and I believe that Lynch relayed to Mr. Clinton that the Feds had no intent to charge her and she should just deny knowledge and take the 5th on anything she didn't want to answer, that way she didn't have to lie to the FBI and become Martha Stewart."

Many thanks to this reader for his comment.
