Maxine Waters and other top Democrats thought they had the smoking gun to take down Donald Trump.
But those plans just went down in flames.
That’s because Trey Gowdy just dropped this one surprise that was a rude awakening for Waters.
Democrats were all hot and bothered to get their hands on the full Mueller report.
But Attorney General William Barr’s summary sucked the wind right out of their sails when he reported that Mueller found no evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to rig the 2016 election.
However, the fake news media was not about to give up on their collusion charade.
So their coverage immediately pivoted to the length of the Mueller report.
Since Mueller’s report was over 300 pages long, and Barr’s summary was just 4 pages long, fake news reporters and their allies in the Democrat Party immediately began claiming that Barr was covering up for Trump and that Mueller’s report must contain secret bombshells that would allow them to impeach the President.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler then blustered that Attorney General Barr must submit the full report to Congress by April 2nd.
But this was all fake news and lies.
Barr released another letter stating that Mueller was working with him on what needed to be redacted from the report.
The message was unmistakable.
Barr conveyed to the American people that his summary was accurate since Mueller worked with him on preparing the report for public consumption.
But not everyone agreed.
Former Congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News program and argued that the Mueller report should have never been made public.
“I’m in a really small minority, Neil,” Gowdy told Cavuto.
“I don’t think the report should be released at all and I’m frankly surprised so many Republicans think it should be,” Gowdy continued.
Gowdy argued that since the investigation was based on the hoax that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia – which was a creation of the fake news Christopher Steele dossier – Mueller’s report was inherently flawed.
“A lot of the Republicans think the investigation was flawed from its inception,” said Gowdy.
“Remember that Strzok was biased, that Papadopoulos was set up, that the dossier was a political hit piece — so if the investigation was flawed from its inception, why is the report not also flawed?”
Gowdy also noted that Department of Justice regulations don’t allow for prosecutors to release information on individuals who are investigated but not charged.
They avoid these type of prejudicial acts since the American justice system mandates you are innocent until proven guilty.
“I don’t think the report should be released because the Department of Justice speaks in indictments. They’ve already indicted a lot of people,” said Gowdy.
Gowdy continued on by noting that Democrats will just use any negative information in the report to attack Trump during the 2020 campaign—even though Mueller made no determination on obstruction of justice and fully exonerated the President on charges of Russia collusion.
“If you’re not indicted, I don’t know that the Department of Justice should be releasing a political hit piece that people like Schiff and Nadler are then going to use for 2020,” Gowdy concluded.
