South Carolina Congressman-turned-Fox News talking head Trey Gowdy says the thought of his former colleague Eric Swalwell being elected president should “scare the ever-living hell out of you.”
Swalwell is one of 20 Democrats vying for their party’s presidential nomination.
The Washington Examiner has more:
During a Fox News interview on Friday, Gowdy was asked to react to a clip of Swalwell saying he believes President Trump “acts on Russia’s behalf” in a recent MSNBC interview.
“President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living hell out of you,” Gowdy replied.
“His last sentence is exactly the difference between a prosecutor and a politician. Prosecutors prove that you did something, politicians make you prove you did not. Did you hear his last sentence? ‘I challenge President Trump to prove that he did not do something.’ That’s what politicians do,” Gowdy added.
Like other Democrats, Swalwell has insisted there is evidence of collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia even after special counsel Robert Mueller was unable to find evidence of conspiracy between the two.
Swalwell’s campaign has focused on far-left solutions to gun violence.
