Former Rep. Trey Gowdy named reporters who helped Rep. Adam Schiff “peddle” leaks from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation.

Speaking with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, Gowdy joked that he could spend hours answering her question about media culpability in aiding the House Intelligence Chairman with what he claimed was “in plain sight collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia.  

“Let’s just start with Politico and anyone not named Rachael Bade,” Gowdy said. “She was the only reporter that I dealt with that was fair. Kyle Cheney is just an acolyte for Adam Schiff.”

He continued: “Manu Raju from CNN–Nothing Schiff wanted out, made public — no leak was too low for Manu Raju and CNN.”

As for The New York Times? All Gowdy said you had to do was “fill in the blank.”

Gowdy warned Friday that he was ready and willing to name names when it came to reporters who were all too willing to advance the false Russian collusion story.

"The media, not only did they not provide scrutiny over Adam Schiff, they aided and abetted him," Gowdy told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "Politico, the Hill, Washington Post, New York Times, I'll come on and even give you the reporters' names sometime. The reporters who sat there and helped Adam Schiff perpetrate this fraud, next time I'm with you I'll give you the names of the reporters."
