These days, most Americans are talking about the indictments from the Robert Mueller investigation into possible Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential Election. The hubbub on these indictments has gone too far in recent days, and it’s time the record is set straight. It seems pretty interesting that all of the Democratic involvement with Russia has seemed to find its way under the carpet following the charges against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. It seems as if Mueller did it with the intentions of getting everyone’s mind off of the Democratic involvement.
Trey Gowdy is one man who never seems to back down when it comes to hate from the Left. He decided to send a pretty important message to anyone trying to blame the whole thing on Donald Trump. Gowdy has been involved in this investigation since the beginning, and he has been saying time and time again that there hasn’t been any proof of collusion.
Gowdy appeared on Fox News to be interviewed by Chris Wallace. The two talked about how wrong it was for the Left to use the “Trump dossier” as any kind of proof that he worked with the Russians in last year’s election considering the fact that the dossier was totally fabricated.
The first thing Gowdy spoke about was the allegations that Hillary Clinton and her campaign were actually behind funding of the infamous dossier.
“I don’t expect the DNC to be objective. Almost by definition, opposition research is not objective. I do expect an entity represented by a blindfolded woman to be objective. And if they relied on that dossier and they didn’t corroborate it or vet it, then we have a serious issue and that’s the next thing that House Intel is trying to find out, is whether or not the US government relied on it.”
It didn’t take long for Wallace to respond to Gowdy’s comment. He stated:
“What about the fact that the Clinton campaign and the DNC, which paid $12 million for the law firm, Perkins Coie, that paid for the opposition research that led to the dossier, that in the FEC filings, it simply says $12 million to Perkins Coie, the law firm, for legal work? No mention of the fact that it was also paying for opposition research that went to Christopher Steele, former British intelligence agent, that went to the Kremlin. Not the money to the Kremlin, but his investigation.”
Gowdy’s response back to Wallace was one that we won’t soon forget. He went on to say
“Well, I’m not an election law expert, Chris, but the good news is you don’t have to be to understand the absurdity of believing that you can launder all of your campaign money by just hiring a law firm. I mean, imagine if you and I were running for Congress and we just hired a law firm and said, ‘hey, you go to all the opposition, you go buy all the television, you go buy all the bumper stickers, you go hire all the experts, and we’re going to launder all of this through a law firm.’ I can’t think of anything that defeats the purpose of transparency laws more than that.”
