Judicial Watch, Government, Federal Government discussed on Red Eye Radio

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Within a democracy. So why can't the request be made released information has been based based on that. Oh, it has.

They've had to get involved. Well, I mean, you look at the oversight committee's when the Republicans held the house, the the oversight committee's couldn't get anything from the the FBI wouldn't give it to the oversight committees. They weren't giving it to the citizens committee. That's the entire point the bureaucracy thought that they were in and still thinks today, not the elected representatives, but the bureaucracy and who's oversight is by the elected representatives believe that what they think supersedes the elected representatives of the United States. And it does not it does not. And that's the problem. So just because the freedom of information act exist. Doesn't.
