Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Trey Gowdy and the FBI Transcript That Changed His Mind

 

Some people are saying that the Mueller report declassification process is underway Meanwhile there is a need to be waiting out the Huber Report. That should be coming out any day, although they keep finding more reasons to delay it. We can only hope that the delay is due to more evidence being uncovered instead of more redactions.

  1. Trey Gowdy said Sunday that an FBI transcript he reviewed while in Congress changed his “perspective” of the Mueller investigation.
  2. Republicans have alluded to the mystery transcript, which is believed to be from an FBI informant’s interactions with George Papadopoulos.
  3. Gowdy has previously said the transcript is a potential “game-changer” in terms of the public’s opinion of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign.

Republicans have hinted at the existence of a transcript that contains exculpatory information for Papadopoulos, who the FBI claims was the catalyst for its counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign.

Stephen Cohen is a man of the Left (his wife is editor of the Nation). But he has been decrying the Mueller investigation and the criminalization of political differences. He was especially eloquent last night on The John Batchelor Show. He talked about how the MSM’s refusal to discuss inconsistencies with the Russian collusion narrative […]

We could end this silly probe with the testimony of one key witness. Actually, I think Putin would lie and say he did plot with Trump to get him elected. After all, the US Democrat Party is Russia’s best friend and ally, so getting rid of Trump would boost the Dems’ chances in 2020 and […]

Rod Rosenstein announced Friday the indictments of twelve Russians for alleged interference with the 2016 presidential election. President Trump is meeting Putin today. There was nothing urgent about Rosenstein’s actions. The Russians do not reside in the US and thus are not a flight risk. His actions were clearly designed to interfere with Trump’s foreign […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Best Part of Ricochet

 

I’m blown away — as well as humbled, delighted and honored. I put up a post this past weekend that had the potential for being controversial. But I decided to risk it, because I felt the subject was important to discuss.

The word “controversial,” as it turns out, was an understatement. The comments came pouring in, the passion was high, and the disagreement with me, in particular, was profound.

In response to Mueller and Rosenstein’s latest move, those who voted for President Trump, and who do not appreciate the establishment they rejected attempting to overturn the election, are casting about for the best course of action. Roger L. Simon writes that Trump must be the strong horse now. Max Ledoux writes that Trump should […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Is Mueller’s Chief Assistant Pitbull “A Madman”?

 

That word is one of the kinder descriptions of Andrew Weissmann found in Sidney Powell’s excellent book Licensed To Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice:

“The most polite description I had heard of Weissmann by any defense counsel who had dealt with him was that he was a ‘madman'” (p. 46)

Lee Smith in Tablet makes some interesting assertions:

News that special counselor Robert Mueller has turned his attention to Erik Prince’s January 11, 2017 meeting in the Seychelles with a Russian banker, a Lebanese-American political fixer, and officials from the United Arab Emirates, helps clarify the nature of Mueller’s work. It’s not an investigation that the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is leading—rather, it’s a cover-up.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: Thinking Clearly

 

“‘Beware!’ said Poirot, shaking an admonishing finger at Hastings. ‘The symmetry, it is everything. Everywhere there should be neatness and order, especially in the little grey cells of the brain.’ He tapped his head as he spoke. ‘If you would use your little grey cells and attempt to see the whole case clearly – as I attempt to do – you would perhaps perceive the truth, my friend.'” — Detective Hercule Poirot, from the novel Black Coffee.

The long, drawn-out Mueller investigation is finally revealing some rotten fruits from the tree of appeasement that was cultivated, pruned and well-watered by the last administration. History has shown that the hidden roots of such a tree grow deep and in many directions, under the covering of thick layers of dirt. Lies, deceit, suffering, loss of life and arrows to the heart of freedom are the result. Then something happens … the roots bulge and eventually burst through the dirt to the surface, revealing themselves.

He knows he was being interviewed on a radio show, right? This actually happened. From today’s The Hill- Dem senator warns Mueller against issuing Russia report near 2018 election: Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.) on Sunday warned special counsel Robert Mueller against issuing a report on his findings in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election […]

The nation is awash in conspiracy theories. The left says that Donald Trump conspired with the Russians. The right is saying the FBI has (and is) conspiring against the President. Everyone is decrying it on one level or another. On the GOP side Bret Stephens of The New York Times calls the worries over the […]
