Trey Gowdy Rebuts Trump ‘Vindication’ Claim: Memo Has No Impact on Russia Probe


President Trump claimed on Twitter yesterday the memo “totally vindicates” him. Congressman Trey Gowdy disagrees.

In an interview set to air later this morning on Face the Nation, Margaret Brennan asked Gowdy about Trump touting the memo.

Gowdy said he understands that the President may be “frustrated,” but added, “I actually don’t think it has any impact on the Russia probe.”

He continued:

“There is a Russia investigation without a dossier. So to the extent the memo deals with the dossier and the FISA process, the dossier has nothing to do with the meeting at Trump Tower. The dossier has nothing to do with an email sent by Cambridge Analytica. The dossier really has nothing to do with George Papadopoulos’ meeting in Great Britain. It also doesn’t have anything to do with obstruction of justice. So there’s going to be a Russia probe, even without a dossier.”
