Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) on Friday said that the memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) raised some concerns about the process by which FISA warrants are granted — but he also made sure to emphasize that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is entirely legitimate.
“As I have said repeatedly, I also remain 100 percent confident in Special Counsel Robert Mueller,” Gowdy wrote on Twitter. “The contents of this memo do not — in any way — discredit his investigation.”

However, this statement did not sit well with fans of President Donald Trump, who angrily tweeted back at Gowdy that the Mueller probe must be completely disbanded on the basis of a partisan memo filled with cherry-picked information.

His investigation wouldn't exist without the illegally obtained FISA warrants.

how don't they? there never should have been an investigation. Mueller can't find nothing because there is NOTHING to find and they can't even make it up. #BuildTheWall #ObamaGate #LOCKTHEMALLUP #DrainTheDeepState #DrainTheSwamp #MAGA

The whole investigation is based of lies. It’s time to end the witch hunt.

Wrong Mr. Dowdy—I respectfully disagree. The investigation was based on a lie and should end immediately!!

How can the Mueller investigation be objective if Rosenstein, the man who appointed Mueller to investigate, knew the only evidence he had of Russian collusion came from Hillary?

Then what the hell is he investigating??? This is nonsense at the highest levels. Enough is enough!!

#Mueller was appointed by & reported to #Rosenstein. #Rosenstein signed at least one of the #FISA applications with knowledge of its credibility issues. How can the investigation NOT be discredited? I’m confused – please explain.
