New Report: Whistleblower spoke to White House staff before filing report
"Opinion president trump continues to go after the whistle blower and fight the impeachment inquiry launched by house Democrats now there's a new twist with the whistle blower report at the center of the investigation a new report says the whistle blower may have spoken to intelligence committee staffers before filing that report yet is that bring the whistle blowers credibility now into question let's get into that live with A. B. C. news crime and terrorism analyst Brad Garrett Brad what do you think does this make the whistle blower look like this person had more of an agenda I guess. no I think if you exclude the intelligence community the whistle blowing statute is really written it so that people can go directly to Congress because it's the intelligence community situation and they have a separate process where they at hours are supposed to reported to the inspector general of the intelligence community what's a whistleblower ultimately did I think the concern was the whistleblower apparently goes to and the presumption is this person works the CIA goes to CI a general counsel who then calls the White House in and talk to the lawyers the White House and so I think the whistleblower then panicked and rightly so that now. the information is going directly to where the information came from allegedly and so I think the whistle blowers trying to figure out the white right way to do it I will tell you both the way this this complaint is written this was a blur knows exactly what he or she is doing this is well documented it's corroborated the best they can corroborate it I think they witness the witness may be some things that are very limited fashion but then she here she then corroborates this information through their contacts both in the White House in in the intelligence community I was gonna say this is lead you to believe that the whistle blower has an intelligence background them. I don't think there's any doubt about it I mean what is supposedly the whistle blower used to work in a White House in the past and it it assuming they work at the CIA than they were must've been detailed there for some skill they had so of so you know that this is a situation where we collectively spent a lot of time arguing about you know the the what is this and what is that and set aside a total letting the system you know may have this make its way through the system now I realize the president is sort of blowing it up emotionally everyday that creates a problem as to what's fact and what's fantasy but you know this is not going to be an easy road for the with the for the whistle blower however comes out now it is and I was reading a staff that that eighty percent of whistle blowers have trouble finding jobs in the future I'm sure that's true GOP senator rand Paul agrees with the president believing that this person's identity should be revealed because of the gravity of the of these claims doesn't the president have the right to know was accuser. yes so I I guarantee you he knows who the accuser is that used to work at the White House so I think that's all fantasy he doesn't know that the point being is if if you if you short circuit the system like this the senator is suggesting then you sort of destroyed the whole idea was blowers I mean the idea is people come for because they either have directly witnessed or have direct knowledge of wrongdoing you know most of this takes the turn of it either Frogger people stealing classified information or whatever it might be it this is a whole different animal because I don't think we've ever had a whistle blower situation that leads to the White House and so I I I I know I do not think that they should be handled just like it's supposed to be handled which is let the system go through it let Congress take a look at it let them decide you know it doesn't have merit or does it not Brad you have a an investigatory and analysts background are there is a battery questions that maybe you ask are you look into a bin and inquire of the whistle blower to check the veracity of those claims of course and I'm going to assume that the inspector general for the inspector for the intelligence community has already done some of this because he he's not going to take on face value this complaint he investigated it and found it credible which means he then went to sources but this this was a war has talked to to corroborate yes I told the whistle blower X. I told the XO it was a war why so there's already been I'm I'm sure a bunch of corroboration me tell you this was a blower. you know cover their you know covered in corroborated I think their tracks the best they could begin bay only based on how this complaint is written but it's fairly impressive from this from the vantage point that you know others clearly have not been this thorough or well thought out before they were
Multiple fatalities in shooting at WalMart in El Paso, Texas
"Armed officers running through the shopping mall as they try to get this scene under control in el Paso were multiple people have been shot and killed the Walmart has issued a statement expressing it shock the governor of Texas has issued his thoughts and prayers but does this scant information comes from the mayor and the police which believe there are maybe one shooter but up multiple suspects arrested and multiple fatalities multiple people shot and killed there in el Paso Brad Garrett formally the FBI and now a an ABC news contributor is is on with us Brad I I mean a rather of let's go to Steve Gomez formerly of the FBI in an ABC news contributor in its own right Steve as the authorities try to get a handle on this they're they're going to have to go through the entire mall I would imagine in order to be convinced that the scene is safe exactly there's there's so much despair information that we've been receiving which means that that thing kind of information is being received by law enforcement so out of an abundance of caution they are going to be sure that they have a good perimeter set up around the mall around Walmart and whatever other nearby area and then they're gonna go into each shop each quality each room one by one and in a methodical manner to make sure that there is nobody hiding in that in that whole area there and and and that's the complication with reports of multiple suspect and the war reports of multiple gunshot if that's the kind of information that they are receiving from the witnesses that they have been providing information that it it takes some time fortunately to really get a handle on what is happening but that's what they have to do they have to be methodical about it because you know the worst case scenario is that you don't go through that process I need somebody gets away there are multiple people that have been shot and killed at a Walmart and shopping mall in el Paso Texas and a a police officer has told us that there is at least one shooter in custody but other suspects that have also been arrested there is no longer an active shooting scene we're told by there are officers that have been seen running through the mall as they try to clear it to render it safe and we're not sure exactly what how many people at this stage have been shot and killed shot and injured we have seen a number of images of people with blood on their faces and running for for cover as people were just out shopping in a mall and a Walmart on a Saturday afternoon when the gunfire rang out we know the FBI and the a TF are on their way is the federal government contributes resources the White House says the president has been briefed the governor of Texas has offered his thoughts and prayers but officers in el Paso were the ones that are primarily responding right now to this scene and the officers with el Paso police have advised anybody to stay away from the mall certainly understandable the democratic presidential candidate battle Rourke represented all Paso said the shooting was truly heartbreaking Leon Castro the other Texan of the race is also he expressed his outrage at the shooting as all manner of politicians now come to respond but mainly the work is with the police and the law enforcement officials who are trying to render the mall safe we have seen images of armed officers running through the shopping mall running through that Walmart as they try to get a handle on exactly what happened and how many people have been shot and killed we do know that it's multiple and at one person at least is in custody maybe others after this rampage of the shopping mall in el Paso Texas I'm Erin could her ski your listening to live coverage from ABC news Brad Garrett formally the FBI now ABC news contributor is on with us now as this shopping mall is that the scene of the latest mass shooting in the country bred up in and it's it's so insidious because it people just walking around going shopping on a Saturday afternoon right and that sort of the sums up mass shootings as far as I'm concerned because by and large they're soft targets like a mall like a school I'll like a place of employment where you know they're not designed to be presto deal and or or foreboding together to go to and so as a result it's sort of for lack of words sort of open season for would be Nash shooters to go to these locations it in so that you know the sad reality Erin is that you're you're mistaken a stop shooters like this you know what you know about them in advance now no longer Forsman obviously it's one of the many things are doing right now is the shooter what his background do we know anything about it which is not in excess but always been our fear for years that you know one mass shooting could potentially trigger another only because of the mindset of
El Paso police say multiple people killed in shooting at shopping mall
"We're waiting to find out more from el Paso Texas where multiple people have been shot and killed according to the mayor and suspects are in custody Steve it is unusual it appears if there are multiple shooters if the suspects that are in custody include multiple shooters that would be unusual usually these things are carried out by a lone gunman yes that we're we've been typically seeing only a a solo gunmen and in this case if there's more than one it doesn't sound that we know how many but more than one either you have a conspiracy which means that the planned this out bay it's somewhat organized we don't know how organized but just having to people as opposed to one means that there is organization and planning that goes with it and and and clearly they were able to commit the attack and they tell they can even be of more than one location which makes this even the little more complicated for the for the law enforcement agencies in fact police in el Paso said they're searching multiple scenes primarily the Walmart in el Paso but apparently there's also was seen at a at a mall of the shopping plaza there there is no active shooter currently according to police but police have said they have not yet rendered the scene safe Brad Garrett formally the FBI now an ABC news law enforcement contributors also with us what is that mean Brad if they they're confident there's no active shooter why is the scene not save because of think about where you are in your in your in a mall multiple stores in multiple places for people to hide explosives would be head wound so he you know part of that is is a safety do well in the end that's the obvious thing to call until you're actually the clear that there is nothing else involved they meet feel totally comfortable that one one one shooter in custody custody is there only that guy but until they figure that out you're gonna treat this is still a lackey see also people in line there and that you know in making comments about multiple currencies that may or may not be true in other words let's say that the bag I ran to the mall or the police are chasing somebody to the mall it's unrelated to the shooting sh so we'll have to see how that soldier they could have multiple locations on Moshi Jesse knows that that sort of Kennedy that this point right in the Walmart there in el Paso seems to be the prime location it's a recent addition to the shopping mall world this unfolded el Paso's oldest and one of the most popular in fact the of the the balls pretty popular with Mexican Taurus to do their shopping on the US side of the border that take their goods back to Mexico and in the last what our or to the scene of the latest Nash shooting in this country the mayor of el Paso has confirmed now to ABC news there are multiple fatalities and suspects in custody how many suspects is not immediately clear but the we do have some indication that it's multiple whether it's more than one shooter we're not sure ABC news chief justice correspondent Pierre Thomas is with us from Washington on what he knows Pierre it's a very dangerous situation federal authorities were initially told that there might be again fog of war potential moldable shooter that's why there's so much concern about the the first responders even though they may have reports again of a person in custody a law enforcement officials were concerned again that there were multiple shooters also I was told by a number sources that there were multiple people injured multiple people injured they were concerned about giving the actual number because it was so early in the situation but again the possibility of multiple shooters possibility of multiple multiple people injured we expected to federal authorities will be joining the local authorities to help assess the situation give them support as needed as you reported a TF is on the scene we expect to be on to be asked to participate as well again that these situations have been very much on the mind of local and federal law enforcement the recently because of the spate of active shooter instant we've been having across the country one organization that monitors thing say that we've had more than two hundred such incidents so far this year were more than four people have been shot in a single sitting so Congress ongoing situation very dangers and unfortunately part of a trend that we're seeing national and here as you were reporting this we were seen the images of some of those injured people being taken off basically on on on Rolling tables through the mall people covered in blood we we know that I know you mentioned that they want to give an exact number but some of the initial reports we were hearing that more than a dozen people were injured we see a woman here clearly you she she has she's covered in blood here this is just one of the many victims we understand at the shooting this is an ongoing situation right now Pierre but let's talk about where this gunman targeted it's a mall there's a Walmart there it's a summer Saturday the mall was filled with people as we see more images coming in from eye witnesses mall police el Paso police running through the mall clearly there were several people here several targets fear well and this is what one would call a soft target again we know nothing about motive it could be work place it could be terrorism could be any number of things we just don't know yet but in these situations what the law enforcement their standard protocol now is to find the shooter or shooters and to prevent more carnage and then they try to get the root the first responders in there to assist those who have been injured but it's it's a nightmare scenario you have a close Saturday morning people are shopping a potentially getting prepared for back to school at all sorts of things and you so much so that with a gun it is this an area of law enforcement unfortunately the train for but it is a situation is extremely dangerous so I can only imagine those images that your three top our chief justice correspondent Pierre Thomas speaking a moment ago to my colleague Tom Yanis on the ABC news television network as we continue our coverage here on the radio I'm Erin to Turkey we are joined by Steve Gomez and Brad Garrett both formerly of the FBI and now ABC news law enforcement contributors Steve let's pick up on the on the theme that that that up here we sharing the idea of a shopping mall as a soft target or Walmart it is scenario for law enforcement officials always very scary and we've been in law enforcement and very concerned about the malls because depending on the season at the time of day or night yeah a mall can be heavily crowded large crowds which means a lot of people and if somebody's looking to commit the tack and to you know arm as many people as possible a mall is going to be a perfect location for them some mauls have more security than others under a lot of entrances and exits there could there could be a lot of chaos there there tend to be a lot of security guards in some places and and cameras and so on but still it's so wide open and that's one of the difficulties with malls in the Walmart especially you you got a lot of people that go to Walmart large lot of crowd and got a lot of files which makes it very difficult to detect the suspect or suspects and in fact police in el Paso have said they are convince now there is no longer an active shooting situation there after multiple fatalities multiple people shot but they have not yet become convinced that the scene is secure as they continue to go through the Walmart which seems to be the primary shooting scene and then the rest of the shopping mall the the oldest that they get a Vista shopping mall the oldest and in el Paso frequented by Mexican Taurus often to do their shopping than go back across the border as it's still very much an active scene this is one you have reached from ABC news I'm Erin could Turkey multiple people have been shot and killed at a shopping mall in el Paso much of the gun fire appears to have taken place inside a Walmart at a mall popular with Mexican tourists and American citizens alike the shopping mall is el Paso's oldest and one of its busiest it came under fire earlier this afternoon by one may be more gunman stories in el Paso have confirmed to us there are multiple suspects in custody but it's not clear there are multiple shooters were still waiting for the police to give us some more information a TF is on its way other agencies undoubtedly will respond later this afternoon but we do know now according to the mayor of el Paso multiple people have been shot and killed after a Walmart and a shopping mall came under

That being said the pilot was written, and they found me it, isn't like this. Bryant was written from right, but you were a hot commodity. Yeah. For ten minutes. Yeah. Good ten minutes is a ten but like, but so it was sort of desperation. But but like, I think in retrospect that there were chances being taken it sort of a unique season of television. We have three different daughters. You know, there's a whole thing. You know? I remember and FOX was very supportive. I think they forgot we were on. I don't know how we got four years and the head of FOX before we were yanked. They very nicely called me at home, and the the ratings were really visible, you know, and he goes, look, you know, we've had a great a great thing with FOX a great thing was Sony, and they were really collaborative as well. And you know, we look we all wanna win. But you know, it just it did. They said to me, they go, look, you know, we're gonna pull the show. He said, you know, your last time out the gate. You got a point. Oh to this is back. When there was there was less channels. Yes. Point. Oh, two, and they go, you know, I I went who that's rough. And they went out of, you know, our our our relationship, and you know, we just wanna let you know before you read about it. Is there a thing we can do before we pull it you have any ideas? And I said give me three more episodes, and I could bring you two zero. I said any big shot can get a one six to eight to be able to say we're so close to zero. We're not point to point to right. Give me three more weeks. I don't know if they got it. Yeah. I don't think that you know, that was a really. Yes. Did they give you the three weeks? No, No. no active. It's not like, no. But him zero. I also like the did these like why that I don't think people always understand that, you know, as stand up like if you're not going to be a writer, if you're not gonna be a show runner that there's their jobs in show business. Stand up Stu can host you can open for musical accident. But also game shows were something that standups did early days in like took him my clubs believe it a draw from those right? But I, but like I missed all that. And I don't know how I would have felt about it when I started necessarily, but in retrospect, the head sure, but like, but as a group as I got older like you will watch match game or you watch Hollywood square, and it'd be like holy shit. These are these are the some of the greatest comics ever worked, right? You know in these boxes. Doing the what's the word fit? Spritzing spritzing with your you use striking..

Okay. So he's back out. Yeah. I tried to get him at the club. No answer. I just love me. So funny. And and then that was short lived. And then I ended up by dishing for for ratio. I was thirty five it was in ninety five. Yeah. And he got very lucky. Well, that the character was so like, you know, you know, you made it your own. But there was the the comedy chops of it. You know, that sort of slow burn deadpan, you know, thing what was great is that like, I don't know that that's really what you do. But you so versed in the style that you know, you really built a character that guys, you know, rights that was kind of it. They were not they gonna million was tough to get the dish in because they just didn't see it. And and that was you know, they didn't know my stand. Up a lot of people didn't and I hadn't met Ray better off though in retrospect, much better off much better off. And you didn't know Ray. I did not I did not. And I got it. Joined with Ray for life return ity 'cause McLean is such a good, man. I he's doing some amazing work. Great guy. Just a great guy. Now, I change. That's what that's why. I really love him. It's like he's the same guy. It's hard not to change its very funny. Like, you know, obviously, some things have changed in the external of like, why me I think is quality of life changed, obviously. But I mean, there's a Casio watch. Okay, casio. Where's he live bread? It's not nice. No. But I mean like I love him points. But what I'm saying? Is that stage? I dunno. I dunno. Yeah.

You some shirt the the final season of till death. Yeah. We did. You did. What was that? Like people just sort of like fuck, you go crazy crazy how I mean? It was sort of like, you know, it was what it was. You know, it wasn't successful. But they acted on because you wanted to try to sure across the finish line. Sure. But it seemed like that fourth season was just like the writing like pushed over the top and away, and And like, you know. breaking the fourth wall and all that stuff up. It was almost experimental. It was experimental and desperate and pushed and we had four show runners in for years, and they just couldn't capture really my voice, you know, working with Jolie was she's amazing. Yeah. Fearless. And we had a great chemistry, and it was fun. We just didn't really know what we were doing. I just come off, Raymond. And to be honest. I could have been. I really knew what I wanted. Right. And I knew what the network wanted. And I felt I was gracious with the cast the people involved, and when it kept changing show runners. Yeah, I just I bucked the lot of it. And and oversteered and my my. You know, my micromanaging kind of kicked in controlling issues kicked in because I came up such a wonderful show where writing was really incredible. And I felt this kind of started really really large. It's you know, it's like you Phil Rosenthal. Who ran Raymond? He was like could this happen? That's how every story..

"And I wish I was I was never part of the hang. I was kind of looked at a guy that came up pretty quick without paying many Jews though. I paid a lot of dues. But I came on the scene quick. Because what I'm trying to say is Vegas was really became my home club. Well, that's the thing is because I never met you. And I know everybody, I know real sort of like sure bearing on on your life. But because it seems to me that not everybody started with you. There was a grail in the grail. Was you know, a television show? It was it was it was Hollywood Centric. But the thing is is that you're of a different generation mentally in a way in that. Like, you know, why gotta work, and you know, if I can get twenty thirty weeks Vegas, then I'm in tolerated. So you're I wasn't on like. Where's the show built around me? You know, where you know? How do I more Carson's? This was my club. I'm working. I'm working. I'm you know, I'm working in.

And then I started opening I got back in the day. That's when they use a lot of comics to to to open for a lot of musical interesting. Because that so because because the comedy boom was sorta starting, but like there was still that old because in the seventies before there were franchise comedy clubs all the guys that I talked to open for musical. Sure. But but but you didn't have to do that. You could've went the club row. Did you did both? Okay, did both. But I really got into you know, I opened for some big people in Vegas, and it just snowballed when did you how did, you know to go to Vegas in my mind. Like, I don't go there. Now. Yes. Yeah. I think that's it. I loved what it represented when I was a kid don't I don't feel that food. I do. Yes. Amazing. But I guess my question is you had a choice. So you're working and you break on star. Search could have been on the road with the rest of whoever like we're not clear on who you started with. Or who you see as your peers in terms of when you started. Who are they is? Kevin nealon.

And at that time in my life opening act happening gave yeah. Putting gigs. And I started out with Diana Ross Sinatra Sammy Dame in Vegas at the desert inn at the desert inn that Caesar's and in those days, I was a little different than a lot of the openers. And I did a lot of crowd work mo-, mostly because the main act I got it to crowd work because my main stuff wasn't great. And my crowd work just had a way of bringing them around because no one wants to see the opening act, and it makes it intimate. Room for the main act, right? And I would talk about the headliners and do jokes, and they like that. And they liked it. And it started to just really snowball. I would go to Vegas a lot with my father, my dad like, yeah. And I I saw early and I fell in love with it and the Vegas all of it all of it. Unfortunately, the bat. Yeah. You know, had a comedian that the club last week when I was there. They Mark Eddie. Okay.

Sometimes bring in a host or get a local, you know, I go for it. I get the better acts. I put him in great rooms at the towers, and it's just it's been really great.
