Gowdy: FBI Probably Has Exculpatory Evidence About Trump-Russia Collusion, But Didn't Reveal It To the FISA Court When Seeking Warrants

Potentially a "game-changer," he says.

"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," Gowdy told host Maria Bartiromo.

Gowdy continued:

[T]here is some information in these transcripts that has the potential to be a game-changer if it's ever made public.


Gowdy, who served on the House Intelligence Committee, said he and Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe have seen the potentially exculpatory documents. He said he hopes the public will one day get to review it.

"If you have exculpatory information and you don't share it with the court, that ain't good. I've seen it, Johnny [Ratcliffe] has seen it. I'd love for your viewers to see it," he said.

Straight-shooters. Nonpartisan. Best and brightest.

Update: This thread presents persuasive evidence that Mueller's team -- the team that doesn't leak, supposedly -- leaked highly derogatory information about Trump to the NYT and thereby gifted the Times with a Pulitzer.

Actually, Gowdy sent LOTS of people to jail. He was a prosecutor for many years.

If you're referring to when he was in Congress, he sent as many people to jail as you did. Why didn't YOU anyone to jail?

Answer: because you didn't the power. Well, NEITHER DID GOWDY. Read a book on civics to find out why.

71 I think suck "exculpatory evidence", would in fact be evidence of crime *by the FBI*, actually the most serious charges we might see in this whole affair. Fraud upon the FISC to obtain the warrants.


Thus the *public* seeing this is not only somewhat secondary, it's *implied* in the process that is presumably under way right now.


For this reason I find Gowdy's wording a bit odd.


Oh - and Horde, good thing ace linked you to Undercover Huber. If you're interested in the Mega-Scandal, most of the real reporting and analysis has been happening with the Twatters types, for a long time. Together with the mainstream [Solomon, Carter, et al], you have it all there.

Me too.

But I want it done in accordance with the Constitution. Why? I just don't want extra-Constitutional powers invoked, because unlike liberals, I can imagine them being used against US.

See, e.g., Harry Reid and the nuclear option. The Democrats, by changing Senate rules on confirmations, are getting nailed in the squeaker on judicial appointments that will reshape this country for a generation or two.

109 WSJ says the House Democrats just passed a bill euphemistically called the "Equality Act", designed to offer very far reaching legal superiority to LGTBQ people.

One explicit provision is to require in all states that men claiming to identify as teenage girls will be permitted access to girls locker rooms. Also, that pedos, once they gain "equal rights" will be allowed to groom your kids in their schools, at scouts, or wherever. Because, rights.

comey's initial meeting with Trump was an open face blackmail attempt that backfired. That's why comey is still butthurt to this very day and why he refused to publicly state that Trump was not under criminal investigation until he was cornered under oath in his Congressional testimony.

128 Jay, while the narrow point here of course is valid, tragically you gotta be careful about over-generalizing. In particular - the judicial branch has been legislating, increasingly, and more brazenly than ever. The constitutional order is a shambles, top to bottom, in that regard. Of course that's tied up with congressional abdication of power, and it starts to get complicated. But the judicial lawlessness aspect is central, and urgent.

I get so tired of these Gowdy apologists.

Here's the deal: The Congress appropriates money. It's called the "power of the purse."

Piss off Congress? No budget for you.

The GOP controlled both houses and therefore the entire budgeting process. Anyone remember how when the Dems got control, they gave up on running budgets and just did "continuing resolutions?"

And then the GOP totally SWORE on a stack of Bibles that they would revert to "regular order" and use the time-established budget system.

Spoiler alert: they didn't.

Gowdy and his gang of liars could easily have broken up the budget into the component pieces that were used for the first oh, two hundred years of the Republic and then tweak each item.

So DoJ won't give documents under subpoena? Gosh, there goes their payroll!

State Dept. can't find Hillary's emails? Gosh, no payroll until they do!

This is not new people, all legislatures have his power, but only the GOPe in its new incarnation as Democrat gimps seemed to have forgotten how to use it.

Gowdy could have hammered this home, introduced amendments to the budget and really done something constructive, but instead he held empty hearings and now mugs for the camera full-time.

Useless tools, all of them.

146 Related: There was a documentary (on NBC's Dateline if I remember right) about a murder conviction being overturned because of prosecutorial misconduct. The kicker is that the prosecutor in question, Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi, is the host of ID Channel's True Conviction crime documentary series.

The alleged misconduct was a discovery violation of failing to disclose an alleged deal between the prosecution and a jail house snitch witness. These documentaries often dumb the legal stuff down to the extent that you can't really tell what happened but, reading between the lines, I think the Supreme Court judge (which in NY is the trial court) ruled as a factual matter that there was no deal made and no benefit conferred and so nothing to disclose and therefore no misconduct. The Appellate Division (which is what they call the court of appeals in NY) reversed that and vacated the conviction. The prosecution has appealed to the Court of Appeals (which is what they call the supreme court in NY) and who knows how they'll rule?

But anyway, I liked it better when you could basically trust the prosecution and the courts.

What it would have done is force the GOP to put up or shut up.

Like all the Obamacare repeal bills they passed, knowing they'd go nowhere.

Gowdy could have forced the issue. He could have put the leadership on the spot if he had actual conviction.

Funny thing is, this is the sort of thing that should have been an easy "yes" vote for the GOP. It isn't a gov't shutdown, it's forcing Obama to veto a bill that will fund his own DoJ to hide documents.

It is the perfect veto trap - but you have to want to use it.

Gowdy didn't want to, and no one else did, either.

2. Gowdy mugs for cameras, still out of congress.

Why bother? Are they saying that, unlike the President, Congress can't get results? Speaker Pelosi planned to arrest the Attorney General, and she only controls part of Congress.

But it doesn't matter, we have a President who can deliver, and if Congress can't give us anything but excuses and betrayal, BURN THEM ALL.

180 >>Them quit with the masturbatory fantasies and hearings and throwing subpoenas around and admit to John Q Public that the only thing you can hold is a circle jerk.

I've actually been saying this for a couple years.

Congress only does oversight hearings. They have zero power to indict or arrest anyone. The often whispered about jail in Congress is being used as a storage closet for Lincoln's caisson. It's never been used because Congress powers to arrest are like Bigfoot, mythical.

The hearings are useful for informing the public particularly when we have a DOJ that doesn't leak like the one we have had since Trump took over and got supercharged when Sessions and Coats started a leak task force in the summer of 2017.

The dynamic tension we often see with Congress railing at the Executive branch to turn over documents is mostly kabuki. They are supposed to be in conflict.

Congress does oversight, writes reports and from time to time makes criminal referrals to the DOJ. If there is going to be criminal charges it will come from the DOJ.

When I mentioned Congress abdicating its power, I was thinking, and largely, of the power of the purse, which is its clearest constitutional power, and which it has nearly completely abdicated.


Note that the Dems' descent into whatever it is they are now has included total abandonment of one of the key things the founders counted on to maintain balance - jealous of their power/prerogatives. Dems in Congress, since Obama in particular, have taken a purely partisan approach on this. And GOP .... well.

A couple of reasons.

First, he was - like all GOPe types - trying to throw the House to the Dems. Mission accomplished there. Anyone remember the "historic" number of retirements?

So even with a safe seat, Gowdy spread the GOP that much thinner.

Plus, he'd be a minority committee member, so less opportunity for graft.

Now he gets a new career to preen and strut and act like he totally was on the brink of uncovering all this stuff, but for Obama, sunspots, etc.

And maybe he runs for Senate or governor down the road?

285 >>The crime is that they did not tell Poppadopalis that they were wearing a wire?

Due to the very nature of a FISA warrant a very high bar is put on the FBI when they submit an application for a warrant. Not only do they swear that the person they want to surveil is working for a foreign government as a spy against US interests they must swear that all of the information has been verified.

They also must present any exculpatory information they have on the target. This is critically important because the whole process is done in secret and there is no lawyer or representation for the accused. The FBI must play both sides and they must be fair.

Papa has claimed for a long time that he told Mifsud, Downer and Halper that he wasn't working for the Russians, had never worked for a Russian government official and in fact didn't even know any and was not looking for Hillary's emails.

All of that is exculpatory information and it was never presented to the court. If there are recordings were he did say that the FBI is screwed.

Maybe read about it in WaPol or the NYT? No?

We have always known that the media was in the tank for the left but thanks to these investigations we know have proof that they were in many cases in league with the FBI/DOJ. They were helping tank stories and build narratives. And we know that Comey and Loretta Lynch, Strock, Page, Baker and McCabe to name a few had no intention of ever prosecuting Hillary.

As I said a few days ago, part of the reason we used to kill traitors is so that they could not rabble rouse or have their followers rally around them while in prison.

326 >>>The crime is that Hillary AND our government answering to Hillary colluded with Vlad Putin and Russian Intelligence, directly, to throw the election to Hillary, AND to spy on president Trump to try to over throw him after he took office.

Death penalty-worthy crimes.

327 34 The first indictment will be cause for celebration. Maybe. (Depends on the nature of the charges)


Until then these teaser-stories are just making me frustrated!

That's the beauty of the conspiracy they conducted. One goes down, they take everyone else with them. And everyone wants to be the one who gets the deal so the rush will be on, I believe it's already started..

Thanks for the background. Disband the FIB and let the states do their own.

331 Yeah Nunes, Gowdy, any GOP holding oversight hearings doesn't get the benefit of the MSM megaphone. Unfortunately the alphabets still have a lot of influence and move the needle with public opinion. That's why they squash news re: findings of demunist misdeeds.

True, but their contributions were minor.

Steele got 90% of the bullshit in his "Dossier" directly from Russian Intelligence.

nah, it is to push the transactional cost of treason up. The fact that traitors aren't around to rabble-rouse is a side benefit.

Actually, having it as a coordinating and training agency for the states with no actual field agents would be good.

Nadler's sweat looks not so much like sweat but more like ectoplasm as it moves from the inner Nadler otherworldly damnation zone into the outside world that normal humans occupy.

344 Probably a dead thread but was driving home.

was promised by the US Government to be allotted to the Crow Tribe forever, as hunting grounds.

Yeah fair or not that was the deal, a treaty signed by the US government.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at May 20, 2019 06:02 PM (39g3+)

The treaty allowed for hunting on unoccupied lands. A Federal Park is occupied . Simple as that. This was nothing more than SJW signaling.

Posted by: Can't resist temptation at May 20, 2019 06:34 PM (2DOZq)

345 No I think he made a dumb decision ignoring the definition of occupied. A Federal National Park is definitely occupied .

Posted by: Can't resist temptation

idk, the feds specifically classify big chunks of the west as "unimproved" - and prevent development or occupation.

Posted by: Jean at May 20, 2019 06:38 PM (25Dt7)

I don't disagree but this was specifically in a National Park as opposed to a land grab.
