According to Florida congressman Matt Gatez (R-FL), the ‘most compelling’ and most damning evidence related to the Russia probe could be ‘days, if not weeks’ away.
However, the damning evidence isn’t targeting President Trump. It’s leading to the Obama administration.
The corrupt intent to smear @realdonaldtrump seemed to germinate out of the Obama White House & it must be investigated. Strozk and Page’s texts seem to suggest that Comey, Brennan and Clapper were involved in trying to create this narrative rather than conduct the investigation.

Gaetz revealed on Monday evening that covert, unreleased transcripts and documents related to former Trump adviser Geroge Papadopoulos expose that he had denied that there was any illegal conspiracy between the President’s campaign team and Russia, in addition to stating that intelligence officials didn’t furnish that information to the FISA court at the time.
As stated in his tweet above, Rep. Matt Gaetz says that “The corrupt intent to smear

According to Fox News:
“I believe we are days if not weeks aways for the most in compelling evidence in the biggest political scandal in American history,” Gaetz said on “Hannity” Monday.
“There was western intelligence sent to spy on Papadopoulos and there’s a recording and transcript of the conversation. And there, Papadopoulos denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. So, they had evidence presumably that was against Papadopoulos and for him. What they will wont be able to defend is that they never presented that evidence to the FISA court.”
Former congressman Trey Gowdy made mention of such transcripts during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” suggesting it is likely the FBI would have transcripts of discussions between informants and Papadopoulos and calling them game-changing if made public.
Gaetz said that this information is what Attorney General William Barr spoke about last week with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer.
“This is what Attorney General Barr means when he talks about them putting their thumb on the scale. The government has an obligation before a secret court with no defense attorney to present all of the exculpatory evidence that they are provided, all of the exculpatory evidence,” Gaetz said.
Gaetz made his case as to why this evidence will be so important to uncovering the truth:
“Here they only presented evidence that would cast people associated with the Trump campaign in a bad light without their multiple professions of innocence,” Gaetz said.
“Now, Comey and Clapper and Brennan are all going to say Papadopoulos might’ve known he was being surveilled when he said none of this stuff was actually happening. But there is still no excuse for why they didn’t go before court.”
Stay tuned for more on these developing events.
