For many on the right side of American politics, the idea that Donald Trump is some sort of Kremlin double agent is laughable, absurd, and downright impossible.
This sort of conjecture is far more likely to be a part of a Hollywood blockbuster than reality, given just how heavy and strange the accusations are. Yet, the liberal left continues to pursue this “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory through a number of channels.
Now, as Attorney General Bill Barr looks to “investigate the investigators” and get to the bottom of this entire debacles beginnings, one former Congressman has a stern warning for the nation at large.
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.take our poll - story continues below
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.
“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.
Gowdy seemed to have a very specific bit of information in mind.
“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.”
The former lawmaker has long believed that Robert Mueller’s investigation to alleged ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government was a farce, and has stated so publicly on several occasions.
