During his years in Congress, Trey Gowdy made a name for himself by masterfully destroying corrupt officials.
Nobody was safe when put in front of a committee he was in.
And even from retirement, Gowdy just launched his latest move that struck fear in the heart of the deep state.
The end of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion closes the door on the insane conspiracy theory that has been plaguing Donald Trump since the start of his presidency.
But it also opens the door on investigations into the origins of the Russia investigation.
As Attorney General William Barr has made clear, there is a high likelihood that there was illegal activity that went into the formation of Mueller’s investigation.
At the beginning of the investigation into Russia collusion, former President Barack Obama was President.
So they had a much different set of rules they could play by.
Considering just how corrupt the Obama administration truly was, Justice Department officials could essentially do whatever they wanted.
And if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, they would get away with it.
But with Trump in the White House, the Barr-led Justice Department is working overtime to get all the facts out.
Recently, Gowdy went on Fox News to speak with Maria Bartiromo to make it clear just how much Barr may already have to expose the Obama Justice Department.
Because of his previous position on the House Intelligence Committee, Gowdy has seen a lot of classified information about the Russia investigation that he cannot reveal.
But through hints, it is becoming clear that an incoming series of transcripts are likely to create a major stir.
After bringing up transcripts of conversations between Justice Department officials and Trump campaign officials, Bartiromo specifically went into the case of George Papadopoulos.
In September of 2016, Papadopoulos was contacted by Stefan Halper, a former Cambridge professor, and longtime FBI informant.
Halper claimed he wanted to speak to Papadopoulos to provide research about energy security issues, paying him $3,000, and providing him a trip to London for the meeting.
But instead, Halper questioned Papadopoulos about hacked emails from Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.
Papadopoulos claims he made it clear that he was not interested in anything related to that, and that he would not support any hacking of a political opponent.
The exact contents of that conversation are supposedly one of the transcripts the Justice Department will be releasing.
And as Gowdy explains, that information would be exculpatory, proving that Papadopoulos was not involved in the crime the media has been trying to pin on him for years.
“What you just described is textbook exculpatory information. It tends to show that a person did not commit a crime,” Gowdy explains.
It also proves that Papadopoulos, who was a major part of the formation of Mueller’s investigation, did not say what was alleged of him.
This one transcript could destroy the entire narrative behind the Russia investigation, and possibly end up with some officials facing criminal charges.
