The President also provided the answer in the same tweet and said, "Because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win, and he didn't want to upset the apple cart!" It's worth noting the Gowdy was one of the small group of lawmakers who were allowed to be briefed on information about the investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian efforts to influence the election.
