Rep. Trey Gowdy said Sunday he doubts Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act documents ordered declassified by President Donald Trump would change anyone’s mind about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” the South Carolina Republican said he’s seen the documents and they’re almost all unrelated to Trump.
"I generally am on the side of transparency, with the caveat do nothing that jeopardizes national security or impacts or relationship with our allies,” Gowdy said, adding of the classified FISA documents, “I've seen all of it, and with the exception of one document, I don’t think anybody’s mind is going to be changed when they read this stuff.”
Trump has since delayed the release of the documents after “key allies” raised concerns.
Gowdy also lamented the controversy over Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s reported idea to wear a wire to tape his conversations with Trump — and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him.
"We won't know that until we see the [former acting FBI Director Andrew] McCabe memos, which if you really want to see them, don't run for Congress, go be a reporter, because they have seen them and we have not,” Gowdy said.
“Look at the McCabe memos, find out who else, if anyone, was in the room, then give Rod a chance to explain whether or not it's true and the context in which it was said."
