“I have more confidence in executive branch investigations than I do congressional,” Gowdy told CBS News’ Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “I wouldn’t say it’s a wreck. The witnesses we talked to — no one said that they had any evidence of collusion. And I participated in almost every one of those interviews and I’m the one who asked the questions. So from the standpoint of where these matters are best investigated, I don’t think it’s in Congress right now for myriad reasons.”

Gowdy also faulted Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, for how he handled the investigation.

“[W]hen you start with a conclusion, which Adam Schiff did in March of 2017, you have evidence of collusion and then you never ever share it with anyone,” Gowdy said. “That investigation is not likely to turn out well.”
