Talking on Monday night Florida congressman Matt Gaetz revealed that the “most compelling” evidence in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is days, if not weeks away.
In secret unreleased transcripts involving former Trump aide George Papadopoulos, the documents reveal that he denied there was an illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia and that intelligence officials did not present that information to the FISA court, according to Gaetz, R-Fla.
“I believe we are days if not weeks away for the most compelling evidence in the biggest political scandal in American history,” Gaetz said on “Hannity” Monday.
“There was western intelligence sent to spy on Papadopoulos and there’s a recording and transcript of the conversation. And there, Papadopoulos denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. So, they had evidence presumably that was against Papadopoulos and for him. What they will wont be able to defend is that they never presented that evidence to the FISA court.”
Former congressman Trey Gowdy mentioned transcripts during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” saying it is likely that the FBI would have transcripts of discussions between informants and Papadopoulos and calling them game-changing if made public.
Gaetz said that this information is what AG William Barr spoke about last week with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer.
“This is what Attorney General Barr means when he talks about them putting their thumb on the scale. The government has an obligation before a secret court with no defense attorney to present all of the exculpatory evidence that they are provided, all of the exculpatory evidence,” Gaetz said.
Gaetz explained why the evidence is so important.
“Here they only presented evidence that would cast people associated with the Trump campaign in a bad light without their multiple professions of innocence,” Gaetz said.
“Now, Comey and Clapper and Brennan are all going to say Papadopoulos might’ve known he was being surveilled when he said none of this stuff was actually happening. But there is still no excuse for why they didn’t go before court.”
