Listen: Attorney, President And President Trump discussed on Overnight re-air of day's programming
"Expect that's going to be released any day. Now deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein who appointed the special counsel in the first place defended attorney general Bill bars handling of the mullahs report telling the Wall Street Journal that quote he's being as forthcoming as he can. And so this notion that he's trying to mislead people. I think is just completely bizarre. What's your response? Well, he would be forthcoming own. Only if he releases the entire report and the underlying evidence to the judiciary committee, which has been done in every previous incidents where they were looking into presidential or other misconduct. That would be another judiciary committee is the proper locus of for deciding what has to be withheld from the public again. That's what's been done in the past to deny the judiciary committee, and the congress of the knowledge of what's in parts of the model report is not proper. And of course, the attorney general when he started talking completely without evidence as he said about spying on the on the. The Trump campaign when he let he meant was executing judicially ordered warrants showed his his bias. And the fact that he's really acting as a personal agent or the president rather than the attorney general the United States in this matter in terms of the report, we already know that the special counsel report does not reach a conclusion when it comes to weather, President Trump obstructed Justice. But attorney general Bill VAR he did reach a conclusion he says there is not sufficient evidence to establish that the president obstructed Justice. Does that end the debate over obstruction of Justice, certainly not especially since attorney general. Bar before he became attorney general wrote a long memo in which he said that a president could not. Obstruct Justice because the president is the boss of the Justice department and could order it around to to to to incident investigation to eliminate investigation and could not be questioned about that. In other words, he thinks it as a matter of law. A president can't obstruct Justice, which is a very wild and a theory to which most people do not. Do not agree. And the fact of the matter is we should see and judge for ourselves. And that's for congress to judge whether the president at struck the Justice or not for the public. Ultimately, it's not it's not the bailiwick of the attorney general to no, no, it is not the bay week of the attorney general he he is soon different self that is not the purpose of of the law. And the fact is that we also need to see the report because it may be that the Muller decided not to prosecute for instruction of Justice for various reasons that there wasn't proof beyond a reasonable that of some things, but there's still may have been proof of some very bad deeds and very bad motives, and we need to see that. And the public needs to see that the attorney general as you noted told congress this week that he believed quotes spying occurred against Trump associates during the two thousand sixteen election saying he's concerned that improper surveillance may have occurred. A you've asked Justice department officials to brief you on this. Have they done? Well, we've not recently we have reviewed the inspector general's report in various findings over the last two years, and is complete and total nonsense. The FBI followed procedure they got a warrant. They properly did it in fact, w general Rosenstein, signed off on the unwanted renewals of that FIS award, and that is proper legal surveillance when they when they when they were concerned that the Russians were attempting to infiltrate in American political campaign that is not spying spying is loaded word in the attorney general should not have used that. I want to ask you, President Trump posted a video"
