Kash Patel: 'We're Seeing the Politicization of the National Security Apparatus of the U.S.'

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Our government in a variety of different roles. You were a partner with Devin Nunes in uncovering and masking. And later, I want to ask you about our friend Durham and how that entire project is progressing in your opinion.
