Gowdy: Papadopoulos Transcripts Are Exculpatory

Washington Examiner
by Jerry Dunleavy
August 04, 2019 02:52 PM

Excerpt:

Former House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy claimed during in an interview on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo that secret transcripts of a discussion involving former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos are an example of “textbook exculpatory information."

Gowdy also claimed that the potentially exonerating info was misleadingly concealed from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by the FBI, and that this is not the only mysterious transcript yet to be released.

Bartiromo said that she had spoken with Papadopoulos on Saturday night, during which he told her that the recorded conversation in question involves him and FBI informant Stefan Halper in September 2016. Papadopoulos allegedly pushed back against Halper’s suggestion that he or the Trump campaign would have wanted Russia to release the Democratic National Committee emails it hacked in 2016.

Gowdy, who has declined to provide specifics about the contents of the classified FBI document, neither confirmed nor denied that the transcript involved Papadopoulos and Halper, but strongly hinted that Bartiromo was correct.

Gowdy told Bartiromo that this transcript “certainly has the potential to be” a game changer and said that he was “lost” and “clueless” as to why it hadn’t been made public yet, stating that he didn’t think it contained any information that would have an impact on relationships with our allies.

Gowdy further said that the transcripts would show “what questions [the FBI] coached the informants or the cooperating witnesses to ask of the Trump campaign officials” and implied that the questions would show that the FBI had been targeting the Trump campaign rather than simply attempting to combat Russian election interference.

Gowdy claimed that if the transcripts showed that the FBI was “veering over into the campaign or your [the FBI’s] questions are not solely about Russia, then you [the FBI] have been misleading us for two years.”

“The good thing about transcripts they don't have to remember,” Gowdy said. “All you got to do is read them. They don't have bad memories. Just release the transcripts and we can tell for ourselves when it began and what it was about.”

Bartiromo then said that “George Papadopoulos told me last night” that the transcript Gowdy was referring to is from a conversation Papadopoulos had with Halper in London at the Sofitel Hotel in London where she recounted that, according to Papadopoulos, Halper questioned Papadopoulos, saying, “Russia has all of these e-mails of Hillary Clinton and you know, and when they get out that would be really good for you, right? That would be really good for you and the Trump campaign, if all those e-mails got out, right?”

But Bartiromo says Papadopoulos responded to Halper by saying “that's crazy,” “that would be treason,” “people get hanged for stuff,” and “I would never do something like that.”

Gowdy? Is he still "relevant"? I liked him in the day... until he became a "quitter". These days, he's just another a-hole, no better or worse than me.

But he's right and he has access to information that he can now talk about. On the other hand what other prominent politician was hiding exculpatory evidence to indict or violate the rights of an American citizen? Oh that's right Kamala Harris. This seems to happen a lot in the DNC and with those affiliated or in support of the DNC.

Papadopolous first shared his knowledge of Russians having Clinton emails in May 2016, just 2 weeks after the DNC hacks took place.

Not only did he not go to FBI with this information, but he subsequently lied during his interview with FBI about how he came to have that knowledge.


Papadopolous himself stated that he didn't previously know Halper and that he was suspicious of why Halper brought in an atractive woman to probe him for answers

"I was a little suspicious about it because I didn't have any understanding why I was meeting a different person, especially a Turkish national,"
https://www.cnn.com/...nntv/index.html

Given that, it's not suprising that Papadopolus statements to Halper would be very different from how he handled this sort of aproach before.

Exculpatory it is not.

Two weeks after the DNC hacks took place, it was common knowledge. Even my four-year old nephew knew about the hacks. The FBI fed this information to George Papadopoulos through foreign channels and martinis in order to set him up. The FBI framed its interrogation to pressure Papadopoulos for misremembering a date. Which is not the same as "lying to the FBI".

Face it. The joint coup attempt by the Democrats and the FBI not only failed, it has been exposed for what it was. The dots are easy to connect. The conspirators are not as clever as they would like us to believe.

You clearly don't know what the hell you are talking about and it's kind of amazing how some can make up bs like this on the fly.

No one but FBI, Crowdstrike and DNC knew of the hacks at the time Papadopolous knew of Russians having Hillary emails.

Crowstrike first published their assesment that Russians were behind the hacks in the middle of June.


By the time Halper was probing Papadopolous WikiLeaks already dumped emails and FBI investigation into Russian interference already well on the way.

You’re just pissed off that your side’s (which is the socialist/fascist side BTW) attempt at a soft coup has been exposed. You’re defending truly scummy people who’d be willing to defraud US voters for power. Well, too bad! YOU LOST!!!! Hahahahahaha.

Can you get anymore childish?

I’m not pissed off, but all the fact-free right wing tinfoil hat weaving is seriously disturbing.

And I don’t understand how you don’t see how crummy campaign members like Papadopolous DIRECTLY CAUSED the investigation into Russian contacts with their unpatriotic actions and all the lying.

Yawn is this when you tell us the proof is coming, or just wait until the investigation is done or...... what’s your next goal post and proof we need to wait for? So far your batting average isn’t great. But by all means what are we waiting for next as the smoking gun?

A guy I know, zurg, had this great quote. He said: “I’d rather be childish and right than serious and wrong”.

Thank you. I do my best. It just goes to show what a person can accomplish if they really put their mind to it.

It's problematic at nightclubs though. I hear someone yell, "Hey, A-hole", I feel obliged to glance around to see whose looking for ME.
