US Attorney John Durham, who AG Bill Barr gave the job of investigating the beginning of the Trump investigation is examining transcripts of conversations between government spies and George Papadopoulos. This is a critical event.
We already know that Trey Gowdy and others have already seen them and they hinted that there was exculpatory evidence that Mueller withheld from the defense and the courts. If that is indeed the case, it is a Brady violation and any lawyer that covered up exculpatory evidence, they could be disbarred or at least have their law license suspended for a year or two.
Assistant to Mueller, Andrew Weissmann has a history of withholding exculpatory evidence as does Mueller.
The sources also said the review is taking a closer look at the actual start date of the original FBI investigation into potential collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians, as some allege the probe began earlier than thought. Both components are considered key in the review currently being led by Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham –– an effort sure to draw more attention in the coming weeks and months now that Robert Mueller’s testimony is in the rearview.
The recordings in question pertain to conversations between government sources and Papadopoulos, which were memorialized in transcripts. One source told Fox News that Barr and Durham are reviewing why the material was left out of applications to surveil another former Trump campaign aide, Carter Page.
“These recordings have exculpatory evidence,” the other source added. “It is standard tradecraft to record conversations with someone like Papadopoulos—especially when they are overseas and there are no restrictions.”
