John Dowd, former attorney for President Donald Trump, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the latest on the Mueller investigation. Dowd spoke about being disappointed in Bob Mueller for dragging out the Russia investigation and not living up to promises he made in his initial meetings. Dowd believes the worst thing that Mueller has not done is fail to investigate James Comey, with Dowd referring to Mueller as "Comey II." When asked about Congressman Trey Gowdy saying President Trump should sit down and answer questions about what he knew about what Russia did in 2016, Dowd said, "I've always thought Gowdy is an idiot and it's good he is retiring. He doesn't know anything about of what he is talking about." Also, Dowd believes Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS should have to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

John Dowd on Trey Gowdy saying President Trump should sit down with Robert Mueller and answer questions about what he knew about what Russia did in 2016
(JOHN DOWD) I've always thought Gowdy is an idiot and it's good he is retiring. He doesn't know anything about of what he is talking about. The fact of the matter is, let's take Flynn. Flynn was trapped and now he is convicted in 1001 (1001, commonly known as "making false statements.") in a crime he didn't committee. I mean what an outrage, what a travesty, I mean, where the hell is Gowdy? He gave me this big lecture when I first announced the President was not going to testify.
John Dowd on whether Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS should have to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) & Robert Mueller being "Comey II"
(JOHN DOWD) Oh yeah, absolutely. That is such a disgrace. Judge Jeanine hit it out of the park today on how corrupt. And we raised that by the way, my boy, Mark and I and Jay have raised all these issue early. The wrost thing they did, they never investigated Comey. We requested he investigate he accuser. When you conduct an investigation and someone comes in and says, why Kilmeade did the following. The first thing I do is go check out who made the accusation, what's the basis for it, etc. Instead they kicked the can down the road on Comey to the Inspector General who only has half his powers. That's why I knew and I sensed and by the way then I appealed to Rosenstein, who blew me off. That's when I said, you know, this thing's a fix. It's a fix by, this is like Comey II Brian. That's what it is, it's Comey II.
(KILMEADE) Robert Mueller is Comey II?
