Trump's Spygate Conspiracy-Trent Gowdy Latest to Dispute Trump's Claim


Trump's Spygate Conspiracy-Trent Gowdy Latest to Dispute Trump's Claim

30 May 2018 at 9:22:00 AM


Gowdy told Fox on Tuesday that after receiving classified briefing on the subject "I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do" in acting on information.



REP. TREY GOWDY: I think defensive briefings are done a lot, and why the Comey FBI didn't do it I don't know, but [FBI director] Chris Wray and [deputy A.G.] Rod Rosenstein have at least made it clear to us, Donald Trump was never the target of the investigation and he is not the target of the investigation. Keep in mind, that can all change based on testimony from a witness. But, for now, I think Chris Wray and Rod Rosenstein are stunned when people think Trump is the subject of their investigation. I'll leave it up to them for how to brief the president and his lawyers.



MARTHA MACCALLUM: Was that point of view that you're talking about right now strengthened when you went into this briefing last week? 

GOWDY: Yes. I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

"I would think everyone would want to know what Russia did"-Gowdy

What's funny about the part of this video with Guiliani is that on a different show G was on, he indicated that calling all this "spygate" is essentially a PR ruse in case Trump impeachment comes up -NYMAG

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani confirmed on Sunday that the president and his allies’ attempts to discredit the Mueller investigation — including the most recent so-called Spygate controversy — are part of a public relations campaign aimed at staving off impeachment. “It isfor public opinion,” the former New York mayor admitted during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union. And while trying to shape public opinion is the rarely acknowledged goal of any presidential administration, what Giuliani said next was unique to Trump’s: “Because eventually the decision here is going to be impeach or not impeach.”

Giuliani’s comment came amid pressure from host Dana Bash to acknowledge that he and Trump were using a “very specific, very political strategy to undermine [the Mueller] investigation,” highlighting how a recent poll revealed a 15 percent drop in the number of Republicans who wanted Trump to testify in the probe. Bash and Giuliani had already talked about the unfounded Spygate allegation by Trump and his allies that the FBI had installed a spy in the Trump campaign to set up for collusion charges. (The FBI had actually warned Trump that Russia was trying to infiltrate his campaign.)

Even Judge Napolitano calls Trump's Spygate claims baseless

There's no evidence whatsover

I wonder given all this why Trump is fighting so hard not to go before Mueller. According to Gowdy, at least at this time, Trump is not a target of an investigation that Trump ASKED for. Senator Mitch McConnell supports the Mueller investigation after receiving a classified briefing. The Senate Investigation Report that came out about a month ago says there *was* Russian interference for Trump. There have been 17 indictments and 5 guilty pleas so far. Instead of being glad that the investigation that he asked for, instead Trump has been trying to tear down respect for the rule of law, has done nothing to turn his attention to specifically protect the upcoming elections from Russia (or other) interference).
