Maria Bartiromo and Trey Gowdy Discuss Ongoing Investigations of DOJ and FBI…

A very well informed Maria Bartiromo has an interesting interview with Trey Gowdy this morning.  In the first section of the interview Representative Gowdy reveals he has seen some of the originating “electronic communication” (EC) source material that initiated the 2016 counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign.

An interesting aspect to this interview is how much ‘deep-weed’ background information Mrs. Bartiromo is aware of. [Obviously Maria has a direct network to some very specific information.]  WATCH:

.

Representative Gowdy seems to using the Mamet Princple in this interview. Gowdy is obviously aware the DOJ cannot, and should not, release all evidence in their custody if some of that evidence outlines the basis for criminal referrals and will be used later by Prosecutor John Huber. So why does he demand access to it, and public release of it?

Gowdy’s presentation is almost enough to make a person wonder if he’s not trying to protect entities that might be at risk from sunlight or prosecution. It couldn’t be that perhaps there were/are 2016 republican political campaigns (*cough* Rubio), and/or uniparty leadership, who were in common-cause alignment with an operation that might eliminate Trump? Wait… wha?

    OK.. I am going to go against some of the comments here… I am not sure why so many think Gowdy is a swamp creature….I could be wrong, but honestly, I do not see it. He is frustrated with the slow walking and lack of information they are receiving. We are talking about 1 Million documents….He did not throw Trump under the bus at all—He was simply saying that Trump has the authority to demand it. NOW. He hired them. This is a fact.

    A person can have an honest disagreement ( Gowdy thinks a Special Counsel is needed- I am sick of SC’s. They all seem to go off the rails from the original reason for the investigation. ) and not be a swamp creature or deep state. He is asking the question we all have been asking… why are there people still there that have a deep hatred for Trump in this ? Good question, I think that is one only Sessions can answer.

    Now we are reading the meaning of purple ties? Trump has worn purple– so what. Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. What do you do when you conquer an enemy’s fort, in war- you TAKE their Flag colors. When Trump wore a purple tie, according to Roy Potter it was a message to Soros’s ( The HEAD) Color Revolution, Hillary wore purple as well for the same reason Soro’s does. It is a Godly color and it has been usurped. Trump is taking the purple back to God. It is a statement of the DEFEAT of Luciferians. Trump was communicating I am coming for you.

    There is so much we do not yet know.. I am willing to be patient to see how this all plays out to see who is who and who is on what side. It is obvious on some and not on others.

    Just my 2 cents

        No it isn’t the tie – It’s Rooster Heads grandstanding telling POTUS to stop acting guilty and talk to Mueller, every Highly Respected Legal Mind has weighed in and said POTUS should not talk to Mueller because he has exactly ZERO against Trump! Most even say a Special Counsel should not have been created without evidence of a specific crime. Mueller is basically running a Counter-Intelligence Investigation, which is not what a Special Counsel is for! Rosenstein is Black Hat in my Book! Everybody says POTUS should tell DOJ/FBI to release documents, but we all know if he did it there would be a firestorm of accusations of Obstruction. POTUS is handling things correctly by just dumping out a tweet here and there.

Also the investigation has gone off the rails and it looking to get an interview “in order to create a crime.”.

          It is SOROS PURPLE REVOLUTION — AKA Hillary’s Resist Movement.

          The Clintons and Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution
          “[…] On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

          The Clintons, who both have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions and Clinton Foundation donations from Soros, were, in fact, helping to launch Soros’s «Purple Revolution» in America. The Purple Revolution will resist all efforts by the Trump administration to push back against the globalist policies of the Clintons and soon-to-be ex-President Barack Obama. The Purple Revolution will also seek to make the Trump administration a short one through Soros-style street protests and political disruption.[…]”

          Gowdy and Kevin McCarthy THREW the Benghazi hearings in the final week.

          McCarthy made a public comment to a report in a hallway setting admitting that the hearings were just a way to “get Hillary”. Not about justice or anything to do with our men killed and injured. No. Just a petty vendetta. This was the media’s talking point and McCarthy agreed to it very publicly and very disastrously.

          As for Gowdy, there was a big break about Benghazi and Hillary in the final week, I can’t remember it exactly, but maybe it was news about the no-go order (stand down) or some issue like that. It was high-profile in the news the week before the hearings.

          Gowdy did not question Hillary about it.

Issa said in his interview with Atkkisson that TPTB pulled the investigation from him and handed it to Gowdy for a reason, insinuating that the purpose was to simply end it with no ramifications against anyone. And then Kris Paronto claims he and the other heroes of Benghazi were charged with use of excessive force. Gowdy is a Swamp member, no doubt!

EVERYONE who has followed the Clintons knows Comey has been their “scandal fixer” for decades. Trey knew that and flat out lied while passive aggressively attacking POTUS. While Nunes stepped down Trey was in charge of the House Intel Committe. They did NOTHING until Nunes was reinstated. Trey is NOT part of Nunes small group which is also telling. Trey has urged that Clintons e mail scandal NOT be reopened saying it was a done deal. Hillary frequently quotes Trey to support the notion it would be an act of political retribution to investigate her now. Trey is a bigger rat than Ryan or McConnell. And guess who appointed him to his old AG job? Clinton. A job, btw, that he said he was mediocre at.

          Congressional RINOs have been emboldened by their successes in derailing or deferring the MAGA agenda. The Omnibus bill was a clear example of the neutering of the President’s pro-life and immigration reform agenda, done with the knowledge and confidence that the President had to sign it, no matter how egregiously it contradicted his legislative objectives. Expect no better when the budget process is re-started in October.

          The opposition to the President from within his own party is now an open book. Never in my lifetime has a President whose party controls Congress had to cope with such a lack of support and outright hostility from those who claim to be his party colleagues.

      “Ironically, it is the United States that championed Soros’s “color revolutions” in Ukraine (twice), Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Iran, China, and countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Now, thanks to the billionaire hedge fund tycoon, a color revolution is being launched on the streets of the United States.

      Anytime globalist politicians embrace a color, be on guard for a revolution bearing that particular hue. On the day after the election that propelled Donald Trump into the White House, Hillary and Bill Clinton entered the ballroom of the “Moonie” Unification Church-owned New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan adorned in the color purple. Mrs. Clinton wore a pant suit with purple lapels and a purple blouse, while Bill Clinton wore a purple tie. Journalists were told that the color represented the “coming” together of “blue” and “red” America into a united “purple” nation.

      No sooner had Trump been declared the 45th president of the United States, George Soros-funded political operations launched America’s “Purple Revolution” to protest the incoming Trump administration. The swiftness of the Purple Revolution was reminiscent of the speed at which protesters hit the streets of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in two Orange Revolutions sponsored by Soros, one in 2004 and the other, ten years later, in 2014.”

      Gowdy is an excellent questioner and this is how he’s managed to impress people. The problem is nothing ever comes of his questioning does it? All you need to do is listen to his interviews to see he does not support President Trump openly…ever. Compare his interviews to Nunes to see the difference between careful evasion and truthful facts. He occasionally makes noises that sound like he’s on our side but they are limited and usually undone by his next interview. No matter how carefully he tries to hide whose side he’s on it has become obvious, over time, it is not our side or President Trump’s side.

People like Gowdy are compromised. He is a liar. He is complicit in the corruption. I have been hoping for a #metoo movement for congressmen to stand up to the blackmail. I understand the fear of losing family and security, but are there no patriots that are willing to start the movement?

    They had the power to hold them in contempt of congress 8 months ago and didn’t go after the documents now all of a sudden its do or die , Before the IG report comes out ., Sounds like democrats are wanting a heads up on what the IG has so they can sabotage and leak ., They are mad they didn’t know about Huber and how long he has been on it . They think they can derail any inditement if they leak it to the media .

    Any congressman who is suddenly retiring now should be considered a swamp rat leaving the draining pond. Same goes for politicians on both sides of the aisle. If they won’t stick around and help Make America Great Again then good riddance to them. Trey talked the tough talk when a democrat was in the White House. Now with Trump in control he has the opportunity to walk the tough walk and get some results. Instead he gives tacit approval to the phony Mueller Witch Hunt and then walks away.

      Good point dep

      I have seen a lot of the hearings and was impressed with Goudy. I believe he was a hell of a prosecutor. There have been many valid critics of Goudy on this post. I have believed he was just being a careful prosecutor, not wanting to say something was true unless he could prove it.

      I could never understand how he could support Mueller. If Mueller was not a crook, he would have fired the entire crew of people he was given, if for no other reason than the appearance of bias.

      The way they did Flynn shows me this SC “investigation” is as corrupt as it gets. I have never understood how Goudy could defend Mueller.

      You make the excellent point that if Goudy was in fact a patriot, he would not walk away right when he has a chance to make a difference.

        Point taken but I see many times when Goudy has had to defend the “process” even though he knew that underneath, that process was being used corruptly.
        A Special Counsel is an available process and Mueller is a person . . different things.

        Goudy has also defended AG Sessions when, as he says, it was lonely to do so.
        Goudy is careful not to denigrate a process which he might want to avail himself of at a later date.

    First, purple is a significant color for Christians on Easter Sunday.

    Second, I’ve never figured out what color hat Gowdy wears. Some of his past actions suggest he’s a black hat. I was never more frustrated in watching the Benghazi thing and Clinton email baloney drag on for months, to no effect. And encouraging appointment of Mueller and then supporting him even now is galling. But, others have made the case he’s really a white hat and is now being positioned for appointment to Special Counsel and I suppose being pro-mueller would eliminate some objections to his appointment. This scandal has made the world a much more complicated place than I previously believed and I’ve stopped drawing conclusions based on what people say. I’m now watching what they do. That Gowdy decided to leave Congress is more significant to me than what he says about Mueller. I hate all the ambiguity and want all this to end in clarity, but it probably won’t.

    He knows DOJ/FBI can’t release it unredacted but there’s no need to let them off the hook.

    Also, I think he’s singing from an orchestrated script.
    The day after the Goudy and Nunes interviews (apparently only an hour apart) Rep. Mark Meadows says:

    . . one of the things we have . . a tool in our toolbox is impeachment.

      When he first announced that he was leaving Congress, my immediate thought was that he would resurface in some pivotal role. I still believe that and of course want to believe that. His witness questioning skills are vital now. I wasn’t following Benghazi back then. But when you consider what the depth of corruption was, what results could you expect from Gowdy alone, against a rigged system? Now, like Horowitz, he has a chance to atone for those injustices. I don’t think he wants to sit on the sidelines for this, the biggest game in prosecutorial history.

Conversely, he seems very hungry for publicity. As is a time when the best men are needed, he cannot qualify as worthy of high trust. Gowdy, of doubtful loyalty and intelligence, of proven weakness of judgment, is useful to a degree but no more.

Hey, he has nothing to lose and if you watch his final briefing on Bengahzi to the press, where he called them ‘morons’ and ‘losers’, not actually but in other words, he isn’t one to triffle with. There is a plan, and it’s being carried out. This is all Kabuki Theater to lull the other side into making even more mistakes. Just wait until they start on the un-masking and then into the 702 quesries. By then, Rogers will be a free man and it will get really bad. Get more popcorn!

    Pursed Lips

    “Lips which are pulled inwards from all directions are an indication of tension and may indicate frustration or disapproval.”

    “Pursed lips are a classic sign of anger, including when it is suppressed. It is effectively holding the mouth shut to prevent the person saying what they feel like saying. This may also be an indication of lying or withholding the truth as the person stops themselves from telling the truth.”

    “Pursed lips can also indicate a person who is thinking and who is deciding between possible options. Deciding and disapproval are both evaluative actions, which is the common core of lip-pursing.”
