Listen: Bill Bar, Justice Department And Hillary Clinton discussed on Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe
"Things are clear to me one. We could have done this and open setting and two when you read the transcript, you will see that we're talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails sake. So I'm not sure we need to do this at all. I'm trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way. You'll see I did that in the transcript you'll see that. If you get a transcript of my return visit which I think will be week after next. And then this will be over. When the new attorney general nominees served as attorney general the last time you have confidence that he can act impartiality if he's confirmed. I like and respect Bill bar. I know he's 'institutionalised who cares deeply about the integrity of the Justice department. So I'm sure he'll use the standard career resources. He has to judge what he should be what he shouldn't be. But Bill bar, a is a talented person. Who was a good attorney general the first time I liked it very much. I think you'll serve Justice department. And I'm sure he'll talk to the. Extensively. Have you walk investigation at this point as I can't talk about that. Director go. Can't talk about that. Who came out and said, the government interference in such shutdown specific lines of did that happen. And if so topics for. Read the transcript that I think you will not see that happening. Specific topics that you still feel like you can't discuss from your time out the door for year. A now what chant you answer? Well, the FBI for understandable reasons doesn't want me talking about the details of the investigation that is still ongoing it began when I was FBI director. So it makes sense that they don't want to go into those details, but that's a very teeny part of what we talked about a whole lot of Hillary Clinton's emails, which bore you. You're okay. With the next night next time. We'll be. There wasn't any talk of it. I think they want to do it the same way. I wish it we're going to be public. But I think we're gonna do the same way. Again. He said, you're okay with the bar nomination. So will you have any concerns about the firing up Jeff Sessions and the president continually going after sessions for not choosing himself in the president's attacks on the Justice department broadly, and the FBI or something that no matter what political party you're in. You should find deeply troubling. And continue to speak out about not become numb to attacks on little lock over the firing of session specific break. Comey."
