I am not quite sure how to read Gowdy’s message in the following video. He is certainly hinting at what is in the FISA memo, which millions of Americans are eager to discover.
On the one hand, Gowdy appears to be saying that the memo is simply a confirmation of what is already publicly known or highly suspected. He refers to it as a condensed summary of thousands of pages of evidence.
On the other hand, Gowdy appears to be drawing attention to those who paid for the Trump dossier (Hillary, if rumors are accurate), apparently used to justify authorization of the FISA warrant to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign.
Gowdy dropped a major hint when he declared, “if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out.”
One thing is certain – the memo, surely to be released within a few days, if not hours, will be analyzed and interpreted ad nauseam and it will not exactly be favorable toward Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party.
From The Daily Caller
Lawmakers have been reluctant to discuss a classified four-page memo alleging that the FBI and Justice Department abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in order to spy on Trump campaign associates, but South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy provided several clues on Sunday to what’s in the controversial document.
In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Gowdy posed several questions to host Chris Wallace and his viewers that hinted at the allegations in the memo, which could be released by the House Intelligence Committee as early as this week.
“If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted — if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out,” Gowdy told Wallace.
“Do you want to know that the Democratic National Committee paid for material that was never vetted, that was included in a court proceeding?” he asked rhetorically.
“Do you want to know whether or not the primary source in these court proceedings had a bias against one candidate? Do you want to know whether or not he said he’d do anything to keep that candidate from becoming president?”
Gowdy’s reference to a source who said they opposed Donald Trump is unclear, though he would seem to be talking about Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the dossier.
Steele had been hired by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was paid $1 million by the Clinton campaign and DNC to investigate Trump.
