Trey Gowdy is one of those people that while he was in Congress he did everything that he could to fight against the sheer lunacy that liberals would try to impose on us every day of the week.
One would argue that if Gowdy was so inclined that he would make for an excellent addition to the Trump Administration. Well, there’s always the President’s second term so we can always be hopeful.
The great thing about Trey Gowdy is that he is not a person that suffers fools and people that do not want to speak the truth so even if it is an answer that you do not like you at the very least can respect the man for telling you what is really going on.
Former congressman Trey Gowdy said information secretly gathered by the FBI would be a “game-changer” in terms of public understanding of the start of investigations that tried to find a connection between the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump and Russia.
The South Carolina Republican said transcripts of conversations that took place between Trump aide George Papadopoulos, a target of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, and FBI informants would put a whole new light on the actions of America’s intelligence community, according to Fox News.
“If the bureau’s going to send in an informant in, the informant’s going to be wired, and if the bureau is monitoring telephone calls, there’s going to be a transcript of that,” he said on the Fox Business program “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“Some of us have been fortunate enough to know whether or not those transcripts exist. But they haven’t been made public, and I think one, in particular … it has the potential to actually persuade people.
“Very little in this Russia probe I’m afraid is going to persuade people who hate Trump or love Trump. But there is some information in these transcripts that has the potential to be a game-changer if it’s ever made public,” Gowdy said.
The former House Oversight Committee chairman and House Judiciary Committee member noted that Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe has been among those making the case that efforts to spy on the Trump campaign were slanted.
“Johnny Ratcliffe is rightfully exercised over the obligations the government has to tell the whole truth to a court when you are speaking permission to spy or do surveillance on an American,” Gowdy said.
He said the process of getting permission to conduct surveillance “includes the responsibility of providing exculpatory information or information that tends to show the person did not do something wrong.”
