Asked why Trump persists with his "spygate" claim, Gowdy - who is not running for re-election for his SC seat and has made a point of keeping his distance from the White House on the Russian Federation investigation - said, "I've never met or talked to the president".
The paper also reports that Trump dragged his predecessor Barack Obama into his arguments, telling advisers that the former president's first attorney general, Eric Holder, would never have acted in such a way, and he craved the same loyalty from Sessions.

"As far as what I have seen to date, it appears that there was an investigation not of the campaign but of certain individuals who have a history that we should be suspicious of that predate the presidential campaign of 2015, 2016", the senator said last Sunday on ABC's This Week.
And the Federal Bureau of Investigation was doing just that when it sent a confidential informant to meet with three Trump campaign aides in 2016, Gowdy said.
