‘I’ll be damned!’ Trey Gowdy FURIOUS closed-door Intel testimony leaked, says only 8 people in the room

Someone leaked closed door testimony — so who was it?

An outraged Rep. Trey Gowdy appeared on CNN’s “Outfront” Thursday after testimony from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats leaked to the press.

And the media leaks came after Coats was assured by both the South Carolina Republican and his Democratic counterpart on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, that nothing he disclosed would make it into the public sphere.

“About eight hours ago, Adam Schiff and I looked Dan Coats in the eyes and we assured him that there would be no selective leaking of his testimony to us,” Gowdy told “Outfront” host Erin Burnett. “And I’ll be damned if eight hours later, there aren’t three different leaks with what he told us.”

Within hours of the closed door hearing, NBC News reported that “Coats tells House investigators President Trump seemed obsessed with Russia probe.”

“So if anyone is questioning why Congressional investigations aren’t taken seriously, and are viewed as political exercises, you need to look no further than the fact that we looked one of our intelligence officials in the eyes and promised him there would be no selective leaking. And here I am being asked about it not even eight hours later.”

Gowdy told Burnett that there were only eight people in the room when Coats offered his testimony, and said that such leaks to the press could deter other witnesses from coming forward.

“I can’t tell you who it is,” Gowdy said when asked who the leaker was. “But I can tell you this: You’re going to have a chilling effect on other witnesses who want to share classified, sensitive information when it makes its way to the headlines before the transcript’s even dry,” he said.

“I can tell you this,” he added. “It wasn’t me and I don’t think it was Representative Schiff.”
