Trey Gowdy is an asshat - but is he an unfortunately correct asshat?

Someone I respect posted this video to Facebook, and I would like DU's help in responding to that post:



To my knowledge, the only "news" source that carried this aspect of the Congressional Investigation was FOX, so I'm not going to quote the article, just post the video. I ask DU - has FOX doctored, or misrepresented the conversation between Gowdy and FBI Director Comey in any way?

If so, how? I'd like to debunk a false narrative.

If not, if Gowdy is correct, has Hillary followed in Bill's footsteps, and responded to an annoying witch hunt with a series of unfortunate falsehoods, thereby creating a real scandal where none previously existed?

I hope any jury that may be asked to rule on this post to trust that I bring this to DU in an honest attempt at soliciting the opinions of people who are much smarter than myself, with the desired outcome being a better grasp of the facts, and a solid refutation of the FOX story.
