Meadows: Declassification of Key Russia Docs “Right Around the Corner”
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) said the declassification of key documents tied to the Russia probe is “right around the corner,” in an interview with Fox News this morning.
Speaking about President Trump’s plans to declassify Russia probe documents, Meadows said, “I think the delay is over. I think the president is serious. I’ve spoken to him recently and I think declassification is right around the corner and hopefully the American people will be able to judge for themselves.”
Meadows said when Trump declassifies the records, “the American people will be astonished to see… the president was right…”
Meadows also agreed with former Congressman Trey Gowdy who said yesterday that the FBI has potentially game-changing transcripts relating to the Trump-Russia investigation.
“(Gowdy) has seen documents that actually I have not seen,” Meadows said.
“But we have come to the same conclusion and that is, indeed, (former Trump campaign associate) George Papadopoulos was actually taped and recorded” and that there are transcripts of the interviews that could shed light on the Russia probe and its origins, writes Fox News.
Speaking to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Gowdy said, “If the bureau’s going to send in an informant in, the informant’s going to be wired, and if the bureau is monitoring telephone calls, there’s going to be a transcript of that.”
He continued, “Some of us have been fortunate enough to know whether or not those transcripts exist. But they haven’t been made public, and I think one in particular is going — it has the potential to actually persuade people. Very little in this Russia probe I’m afraid is going to persuade people who hate Trump or love Trump. But there is some information in these transcripts that has the potential to be a game-changer if it’s ever made public.”
