In case you missed it, shortly after ending his participation in the Devin Nunes memo stunt and just before it was released, Trey Gowdy announced that he’ll be stepping down from Congress at the end of his term.
And as if that news weren’t shocking enough already, Gowdy went on television and publicly distanced himself even further from Donald Trump’s interpretation of the memo. Then, to top it off, he also took time to sing Robert Mueller’s praises. However, in doing all of that, it appears he may have slipped and said a little too much about the Trump-Russia investigation.
While discussing the Trump-Russia investigation on the Sunday morning talk show circuit, it appeared as if Gowdy was trying to make the case that there is validity to it despite all the controversy surrounding the Trump-Russia dossier.
“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 said.
And that was an interesting choice of words, to say the least. I mean, considering the fact that Donald Trump Jr.’s Trump Tower meeting with the Russian government is a central focus of the scandal and investigation, it’s not all that surprising for Gowdy to mention it. But his mention of the Cambridge Analytica email certainly raises the brow a bit, don’t you think?
For those who may have forgotten about the story, which the mainstream media briefly reported on last year and quickly swept under the rug, the head of Cambridge Analytica, the voter data analysis arm of the Donald Trump campaign, was caught emailing WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange about conspiring together.
While most had likely dismissed it from the investigation altogether, it now seems as if doing so was a huge mistake, because according to Gowdy, it is crucial evidence in Robert Mueller’s investigation.
How Gowdy would know this isn’t exactly clear, but the sheer mention of the Cambridge email at this juncture speaks volumes about some of his recent decisions, don’t you think?
