Trey Gowdy was on Fox News recently to discuss the Trump-Russia probe. The former Congressman and current Fox News contributor said that the FBI has secret transcripts between FBI informants and Trump campaign aide George Papadopolous and that these documents could be ‘game changers.’
According to Fox News:
Unreleased transcripts from secretly recorded conversations between FBI informants and ex-Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos could be game-changing if the public were ever allowed to see them, according to former Rep. Trey Gowdy.
The Republican made the explosive claim during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” suggesting it is likely the FBI would have transcripts of discussions between informants and Papadopoulos.
Gowdy, without getting into specifics, seemed to acknowledge he’s at least aware of those files — suggesting they contain exculpatory information with regard to Papadopoulos (who served a brief sentence for false statements in connection with the Robert Mueller probe).
“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 … has the potential to actually persuade people,” he said. “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 went further to state that it is concerning that the FBI may not have told the whole truth when beginning the investigation into the Trump campaign. This is something that deserves further scrutiny according to the former Congressman.
