Former Representative Gowdy - Exculpatory Evidence in Trump Case Withheld by U.S. Intel

May 20, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - – In a wide ranging interview conducted by Fox News' correspondent Maria Bartoromo on May 19, ex-Congressman Trey Gowdy [R-SC] revealed that it was likely that those conducting the “Russia probe” intentionally withheld exculpatory evidence, that “has the potential to be a game changer…if it’s ever made public.”

That such evidence exists is beyond doubt since Gowdy was referring to documents that he and other members of the House Oversight Committee have seen.

The ex-Congressman was expansive regarding the areas of concern that he had with the way the probe was conducted:

  • When did Russia probe actually begin?
  • At what point did the investigation “became hopelessly comingled with the Trump campaign?”
  • “What was the factual predicate” for commencing such an irregular legal/counterintelligence operation?
  • “Where are the transcripts…” regarding the attempts to entrap George Papadopoulos, an unpaid energy consultant during the early days of the Trump battle for the GOP nomination?
  • What justified the bizarre attenuated nature of the “defensive briefing” provided to President Trump?

The evidence to which Gowdy referred is so strong, the ex-Congressman inferred, that even anti-Trump dead-enders might be conviced to change their opinion regarding the most serious Constitutional challenge to have ever faced the modern United States system of government.

In closing, Gowdy strongly suggested that it was a December 2016 transcript, apparently dealing with Papadopoulos, that contains the smoking gun proving U.S. intelligence malfeasance in the Trump matter and that it was exculpatory evidence of this nature which U.S. prosecutors deliberately failed to provide.
