(CNSNews.com) – At a business meeting last Friday, the House intelligence committee voted to release transcripts of 53 interviews conducted as part of the Trump-Russia investigation, after they are reviewed by the intelligence community.
On Sunday, Rep. Trey Gowdy, a member of the intelligence committee, told “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo he’s eager for the public to read the questions that were asked of people, including various Trump associates (Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr., Hope Hicks, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone) and various Obama administration officials (James Clapper, Sally Yates) and others.
Well, you’re going to see that (Reps.) Tom Rooney, Mike Conaway and I asked collusion, coordination, conspiracy questions of every single witness, from Jared Kushner to Donald Trump Jr. to Steve Bannon to Susan Rice, Samantha Power. I want — I want your viewers and my fellow citizens to see every question that was asked.
And what they will learn is, Republicans were just as interested in finding out what happened with respect to collusion, coordination, conspiracy as anyone else.
And what they will also learn is that Adam Schiff wanted to go back 25 years and ask questions of witnesses while they were in junior high school. And then he goes and gets the Spark notes from the “Brothers Karamazov” and decides to ask about Russian — ominous-sounding Russian names that none of the witnesses had ever heard of.
So I can’t wait for the transcripts to come out and defeat this narrative that Adam Schiff is the only one that is concerned about collusion. You can rest assured this, Maria. If there were evidence of collusion, Adam would have leaked it a long time ago. But there is not. And I can’t wait for the transcripts to be public.
