In case you missed it, shortly after ending his participation within the Devin Nunes memo stunt and simply earlier than it was launched, Trey Gowdy introduced that he’ll be stepping down from Congress on the finish of his time period.
And as if that information weren’t stunning sufficient already, Gowdy went on tv and publicly distanced himself even farther from Donald Trump’s interpretation of the memo. Then, to high it off, he additionally took time to sing Robert Mueller’s praises. However, in doing all of that, it seems he might have slipped and mentioned somewhat an excessive amount of concerning the Trump-Russia investigation.
While discussing the Trump-Russia investigation on the Sunday morning speak present circuit, it appeared as if Gowdy was attempting to make the case that there’s validity to it regardless of all of the controversy surrounding the Trump-Russia file.
“The dossier has nothing to do with the meeting at Trump Tower. The dossier has nothing to do with an email sent by Cambridge Analytica,” Gowdy mentioned.
And that was an fascinating selection of phrases, to say the least. I imply, contemplating the truth that Donald Trump Jr.’s Trump Tower assembly with the Russian authorities is a central focus of the scandal and investigation, it’s not all that stunning for Gowdy to say it. But his point out of the Cambridge Analytica e-mail actually raises the forehead a bit, don’t you suppose?
For those that might have forgotten concerning the story, which the mainstream media briefly reported on final yr and rapidly swept below the rug, the top of Cambridge Analytica, the voter information evaluation arm of the Donald Trump marketing campaign, was caught emailing WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange about conspiring collectively.
While most had probably dismissed it from the investigation altogether, it now appears as if doing so was an enormous mistake, as a result of in line with Gowdy, it’s essential proof in Robert Mueller’s investigation.
How Gowdy would know this isn’t precisely clear, however the sheer point out of the Cambridge e-mail at this juncture speaks volumes about a few of his latest selections, don’t you suppose?
