Listen: Attorney, President And Jay discussed on Jay Sekulow
"Surveillance of US citizens in reaction to president attorney general bar saying that this was in fact, no question, he said, it was spying? And he said, well, we gotta find out if the president was there or not, and they don't even want to look to see the president was there or not. I mean, that's that's the scary part of this in my view before I been played that comment. I mean anything about that for a moment. All he said was there was spying because someone was surveilled. And that's the legal definition is exactly correct. I wanted to terminate is what he's saying if there was a predicate for that. They don't want to they don't want him looking at these new attorneys United States, by the way is the right to look they don't want him looking at whether the predicate was there to do that heaven forbid that he should find the predicate was not there. And I suspect he will find that the president was not there. Neither the legal or the factual predicate was present to justify the issuance of the Fiso warns by the FIS accord, and that is what I think the attorney general is gonna ultimately find out so Pelosi starts screaming her head off. At the off the rails Schumer goes to the floor of the Senate and starts condemning the attorney general Komi saying, wow, this is all just terrible. We have an expression in Georgia hit dog barks. And that's exactly what's happening here. They're being hit and they are barking their heads. So let's do this. Let's we'll take a phone. Call to moment. Let's play James Clapper. Here's what he said. Do you agree with me that every American should be concerned? Okay. This the bite is number fifty six. Do we have it? Okay. All right. We'll get back to that thin. Any just laid out who is speaking to whom and what they're doing. And I know what this is this is the predicate before the Monday Tuesday that what that's what they're trying to do here, and you had Schumer go into the floor and Pelosi's off the rails and talking about Bill Barr. This is this is ironic indeed of, but what is the sense up there? Well, they're destroying trying to distract before. The news comes out there. Trying to draft that headline before it comes out. So that the publications and the cable is all pre written, and they can just run it. Jay the bottom line. Here is everyone knows that there were spying. So how in the world could the attorney general have possibly answered any other way would have not been truthful. It would have not been accurate, and he would be the one in trouble. But I really do think j I mean, I think the primary thing here is a distraction to get ahead of the story. But I also do think leadership in congress is concerned about what is going to be in the inspector general's report. And in the congressional reports Jay I think there was probably more familiarity with some of these practices than any of them would like to admit. But Jay, they're trying to write the headline before the actual substance comes out and can be ready for them. I mean, this is it's so traits parent what they're doing here. It is so trains per let's take another call back. The phones we go Kelly calling from New Mexico line three Kelly. Welcome jaysekulow Kelly. Yes. A really quick comment. Flash question isn't spying, even though it's not even a generalized definition something that's done to or by a perceived enemy. Yes. There's the answer. That's exactly correct. No matter. What definition it is? And all the attorney general said was I want to make sure there was a predicate for it. He said, there's no doubt that it was spying on the campus. We we get a FIS award. And you have to prove this be the I mean that is what FIS a we know even the secret of the processes that the Ford telesales at the reason why they even have to do that step is because we take it. Seriously. Surveilling Americans are surveilling anybody member unmasking you're supposed to even cover all that up because the holes on that changed eight days before President Trump. Even when we issue a warrant that under- five we cover up everyone else associated with it who is an American because we're supposed to be protecting their rights. So anyone else who comes into contact with the person who's not foreign or isn't unmasked? It's just named one to individual visual too. It's not it's not specific you have to go through all these steps. US government to get that information. You can. But you have to put in the unmasking request, which we know even though we the Samantha power type there were hundreds of them at the variant. And that's what got the attention of these reporters. And obviously people who went to those reporters is is they said, wow. This is bizarre say and I'm at these places, right? All the sudden, the UN ambassador the last one hundred days, the Obama administration is put in, you know, hundreds of requests for unmasking Joseph. Facebook said would they have needed any probable cause to survey? Of course, of course, you don't go in there and say judge I want a warrant. Gimme a warrant. You've got to show probable cause. I think. In the foreign intelligence surveillance. You've got to show both exonerated of evidence. And and call Tori evidence in other words, all the evidence. And then you've got to get a one, and it's got to be for foreign intelligence surveillance, not on a political campaign by people that usually we to as as rubber-stamp, but we know in this situation got tonight a couple of times. So they had to keep going back and coming up with reasons. Okay. No. That's not enough and five is ninety nine point five. This is the point. This was one of the point five they said, no, the judge was telling them. No, this is not. So at some point they just kept doubling tripling down and the dossier. That's what we go back to. If you presented that Dustin cut out portions of it, you probably 'cause you could make a problem cause case to convict someone is just probable cause started. That's easy. If you take out portions of it. So they don't even want to turn his I think they went predeceased, they couldn't get it. And they had. To come up with another reason, they said, okay, fine will use this dossier. Because now we know that they were still were they were all worried about what Christopher Steele would end up looking like, Chris who they hired fired. And then try to rehire. Yeah. But they know today they just said it again that they were still trying to figure out if they could trust him after they use his info to get this. They still weren't. Sure. It was correct. Yeah. All right. Let's say and obviously said like any said, they probably said, well, we have this. We have this at that point. That's enough for probable cause. Yeah. But I'll tell you the I think Bill bar looking at it has got them. Very nervous. Let's take another call. Let's go to Nanan California online one and Jason Angelov hopeful, you know, you hit it on the head there so transparent combing. So temperate disingenuous Lucy media, they just they know if they put it out there. They're hoping that people will just hear it and believe it, and you know, I I want to think that we the public. No better see through it all, but I concerned, the GOP or whomever. Don't have the wave of stand up to them. And well, I think the people they got the attorney on states saying I'm gonna find out what the what what happened here and listen to what James Komi listened to James Comey volunteered at a panel. He was addressing on security. I really don't know what he's talking about. When he talks about spying on the campaign. It's concern here because I really don't know what he's talking about. When he says, I'm talking about spying on a campaign baloney. You know, exactly what he's talking about. Now play the next sentence as the FBI that pharma Justice conduct court, ordered electron IX surveillance court ordered electronic surveillance, which Andy you have to have probable cause for you've got to. And I think in the context you've got to also give the other side of the story. So that the judge has the totality of the circumstances. But what's important is it's five it's fun intelligence survey. It's not a desire to either prevent an administration from taking office by undermining their. Campaign or undermining a president-elect once he has been voted into office. That's what they did here. And then let's play the next sentence. I have never thought of that as spying. Okay. But Harry, every legal definition considers that spine. Absolutely. So basically, James Komi is trying to have it both ways. But what he claims in terms of offering to distinction between electron surveillance on the one hand"
