FBI, Senator, Joe Biden discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

College as college or. Drinking as one spirit, and there's much ward look at the redacted port portion of what I said. I don't want to repeat a public. Doc ID information about drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness. And in your written testimony, you said, sometimes you had too many drinks. Was there ever time when you drink so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before? No, I remember what happened and I think you've probably had beer center and. So you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before. Part of what happened you're asking about blackout, I don't know. Have you. I don't know. Have you. Just to you, that's not happened. Is that your answer? I'm curious if you have. I have no drinking problem, nor do I. Okay. Thank you. What does he think he's a. Fuck. He's just got a note. Don't be such a dick. Let's get back to base. Anybody including annual Senator that's brought up. The issue could ask for an FBI investigation. What the FBI does is gather information for the White House. Then the files sent to the committee for us to make our own evaluations. We're capable of making our own determination about the accuracy of any of those allegations. The f. b. i. has put out a statement over. Now, I suppose it's a month ago. Clearly stating, this matter is closed as far as as the letter being sent to them, and there is no federal crime to investigate if Senator Senate Democrats hope for the FBI to draw any conclusions on this matter. I'm going to remind you what Joe Biden said. Now I said, this is my statement, but maybe maybe people aren't listening when I say, maybe they won't even hear this. What Joe by quote, the next person refers to an f. b. i. report has being worth anything, obviously, doesn't understand anything. The FBI explicitly does not does not in this or any other gays reach a conclusion period. They say he said she said they said period. So when people waving FBI report before you are even bring it up now as something perspectively that wasn't it, he. Quote, understanding. They do not reach conclusions. They do not make recommendations. Senator chairman. Mr chairman. Stay for the record that actually we have asked you said that nobody's asked the FBI or we could ask the FBI fi actually have. I think others have, and I think that the issue is that part of what an f. b. i. report does is to investigate and seek either corroborating orcs culpa Tori evidence. It's not so much the conclusion that it draws as the breath of the evidence that is sought out through the investigation and the difference between what somebody might say to an FBI agent when they're being examined. And for instance, Mr. judges letter find by his lawyer sent in. It's just a different thing. I believe still that this is the first background investigation in the history. Signed by lawyer, been reopened when new credible derogatory information was raised about the subject about the nominee. So you know, I just want to let the point you made stand without referencing what we had tried to do, pardon me, but I'll just had to the point you made the letter was sent to the FBI the FBI send the White House with a letter, saying the case is closed. We're taking a breakout Senator Turner. we're taking a break now. Fifteen minute break. So there we are how many, how many more do we have? I think probably three, right? We have yet to hear from Kamala Harris. We have yet to hear from Cory Booker. Is there any more Democrats that. Kuhn's and Blumenthal. I mean, you, oh, is that Joni Ernst and the back. Is it. I mean, I think we now have a clear sense of what the strategy is here. Lindsey, Graham was effectively killed five minutes. John Cornyn effectively killed five minutes. They have apparently jettisoned the assistant female. Right? The female assistant. I decided that's not gonna happen..

Coming up next
