"You're listening to the best of the Larry O'Connor show today in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the former, UH, associate director, deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe testified regarding four years later, the investigation into the Trump campaign and egg stations of Russian collusion. Turning us right now is the senior investigative correspondent for CBS. News. Catherine Herridge who has been covering this story well for four years now, Catherine Herridge. Thanks for joining us. Thanks is always for having me. Did we learn anything today in this testimony from Andrew McCabe? I think we did learn some new details. I think first and foremost, we learned That when the CIA sent an investigative referral in September of 2016, so two months before the presidential election To the FBI about intelligence that they had obtained that alleged the Clinton campaign may have sought to link candidate Trump to the Russians. Who's smear him and distract attention from the FBI's probe into Clinton's youth. The personal server for State Department business. Andrew McCabe testified that he was unaware of the referral and he was certainly not aware that any agents had been assigned to track down the lead. And the reason that's important is that Republicans on the committee posed the question. Woz. The investigation of political campaigns in 2016 evenhanded were the same resources that same sense of urgency applied to this application against the Trump campaign. As they were with the allegations against the Clinton campaign. Yeah, we had a counterintelligence investigation unprecedented counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign based on this interaction between George Papadopoulos and Alexander Downer, a diplomat from Australia. Which, by the way, that's right. This is just let me jump in. In addition to the hacking of the DNC emails, those were the two main data points that the former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, cited During the congressional testimony as Astrid driving that investigation. So the Intel from the ambassador, coupled with the theft of these emails, Okay, and then we have a direct correspondence from within the intelligence community in the U. S government, the CIA handing off a referral to the FBI saying, Hey, we were aware of this or we certainly have. Evidence of this situation with the Clinton campaign, setting up a false story on do that just went nowhere. Do we know Still? Um, if anything happened with that referral What? What I know with what we learned publicly in the testimony from Andrew McCabe. He was, he says he was not. Aware of this referral. The referral had gone to a then director James Comey and a senior FBI agent, Peter Struck director. Comey recently testified that this referral the words used for that It didn't ring a bell and Senator Grant said, Well, how can that be it when you know it went to you, and it should have been A matter of high importance so that that was the main Mine of questioning from Republicans on the committee. Why was it that When you had a referral from the CIA. You didn't Throw against it, the same resources that you did with the Trump campaign. Even even if you only know that it was bad information or bad in intelligence to kind of white displayed and know that it was not worth pursuing. I, of course, in many Americans, I think have grave concerns about American intelligence agencies and investigative bodies being used for political purposes or or or for the people in charge of those bodies being motivated by politics rather than motivated by, you know the investigation of crimes, injustice and such, but in a broader sense, Catherine Herridge Post 9 11. Our intelligence agencies were supposed to share information and actually move on. Concerns and threats for national security purposes is was that raised here? The fact that listen if these are legitimate things, and nothing was done That actually could be. That could be a huge opening for our enemies around the world to find a vulnerability in our country. That's a That's a valid question, but it's it's not really an issue that was Broadly discussed during this testimony. What the Democrats raised is that this in effect was old news and Senator Dianne Feinstein said it was really time to turn the page. On Crossfire Hurricane and they consistently site the findings of the Justice Department, Specter General Michael Horowitz last December that the opening of the FBI Russia probe into the Trump campaign was properly predicated. In other words. There was sufficient evidence that warranted the opening of an investigation into a political campaign. But I always pause there because there's a different point of view. If you think back to December U. S attorney John Durham, who has been tasked by the Justice Department Look into the origins of the FBI Russia probe took the very unusual step of issuing a public statement at that time, saying that he had ah lot of respect for Inspector General Horowitz. But when it came to the issue of predication, he had more information available to him. Outside of the FBI and Justice Department. He didn't share his conclusion. And, of course, Republicans have been very frustrated, and I think some members of the public that they haven't had a determination. From John Durham about predication and the opening of the case or whether what we had here was ah lot of errors and omissions or whether it rose to the level of an abuse of power of position or it even roast with higher level that there was Criminal activity. One FBI lawyer has already pled guilty to falsifying a record, and Senator Graham and his closing statement at the hearing seem to suggest that others may be in the crosshairs. A swell at this point. Catherine Herridge is senior investigative correspondent of CBS News. We're talking about today's testimony of Andrew McCabe, former deputy director of the FBI before the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is happening within the context of you know the Biden campaign wishing to embark upon a transition process. There are charges that the Trump Administration is not cooperating with the transition because there's still Waiting for the votes to be tallied. Let's talk about four years ago. Today you're Catherine Herridge, where the this intrigue certainly reached a fevered pitch with regard to The incoming national security adviser, General Flynn and I know Senator Cruz had some questions about the investigation into Flynn and the charges against Flynn of that time. The I don't want the discussion to be completely just focused on the Republicans. But because the Democrats made the point that there been enough investigations at this point, and it was time to move on, especially When we're in the middle of another presidential transition now that said Senator Ted Cruz asked Andrew McCabe, what's really the difference between the conversations of General Flynn, who was the incoming national security advisor and the Russian ambassador? And the conversations of the former vice president Joe Biden and world leaders like what's the difference now? Um older? McKay do not answer that. That line of questioning based on his earlier testimony. What he told the senators is that they were ready to close the investigation on General Flynn. Um they had concerns that he was a point of contact on the campaign for the Russians. And that when they picked up the phone call with the Russian ambassador. This, he said, quote elevated their concerns and they decided to leave the case open, but it doesn't answer. This more basic question, Which is what? What's the difference between an incoming In your official reaching out to foreign governments to start working on issues of Of foreign policy and national security and folks at home could decide whether there's the corollary between the two or it's really an apples and oranges situation. Yeah, it is, and again, that's I think one of the larger concerns here is that there is a equal Treatment under the law, despite party affiliation or or political persuasion, But I would I would. I would say that Senator Cornyn on my and I'm believe I'm remembering correctly. It was a long hearing, but I believe it was Republican Senator John Cornyn, who made the point. His view is that he felt the FBI leadership in 2016 had really gone rogue and there was not sufficient oversight. And he singled out the leadership over the fact he twosome of interfering in both political campaigns side of Hillary Clinton with a very public news conference about the findings of the FBI investigation into her emails she was never prosecuted for that,.

I. is coming over to talk to him because the deputy FBI director McCabe and says that anything I need to worry about do I need a lawyer and that's where McCabe lied and said no you do not and then you have the bragging event of Jim call me super patriot and Jim call me as saying I sent them you know I took advantage I did something I wouldn't get away with or even try to get away with in a previous administration like the Obama or the bush administration's I took advantage of the chaos and I sent them in and that was the ambush perjury trap and that we now know what does it mean also means yet we want him to what do we want an admission from him do we want him to commit perjury so that we can prosecutor more that we can get him fired well now it's the right there with Biden and Obama they're both in it they're both in the middle of it now you get to okay the White House wants to be informed every step of the way that was part of the struck page text messages are even though we had four separate investigations that found no evidence of any kind to trump Russia collusion so you can see what's happening here that the this this from the beginning this is the insurance policy plain and simple now let me go to the statement of the Attorney General Barr because the Attorney General I know a lot of people in the media focused on say well we're not investigating president Obama now if this is a criminal investigation listen closely to what he says here over the past few decades.

"President trump may be getting ready to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn in twenty seventeen Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador to the US president has been showing new supports for Flynn of late on Twitter after Flynn's attorneys disclosed internal FBI documents they claim shows the FBI tried to entrap him CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge this morning explains how these new records first came to light earlier this year Attorney General bill Barr directed a review of the criminal case against Michael Flynn and specifically whether so called Brady material this is evidence that could be helpful to the defense had been turned over to his legal team and that's one of the responsibilities of the government in this review was carried out by the U. S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeffrey Jensen and what's happened is that the fruits of that servers have now been placed under seal in the federal court here in Washington and we've seen these records made public at the request of Flynn's legal team and then also at the request of the justice department what do these records show and could they have any impact on the case since it was more than two years ago that Flynn pled guilty well there are two main threads to the records that we've seen so far the first tranche of records the big headline was associated with one page of handwritten notes we don't know who the author is but it documents a high level conversation within the FBI on the day Michael Flynn was interviewed by agents at the White House January twenty fourth twenty seventeen and in those hand written notes it talks about the objective of the FBI investigation and the language was what is our goal and it says truth admission or to get him to quote life so we can prosecute him or get him fired and the second set of records speak to the fact that earlier that month so during the presidential transition there had been an open case on general slain called crossfire research and a decision was made to close that case because they had not found derogatory evidence about our relationship with Russia but at the eleventh hour FBI agent Peter Strzok intervenes to keep that case open and that seemed to lay the path for that White House interview which is ultimately what Flynn pled guilty to lying to the agents about those contacts with the ambassador we had a news from the judge in this case who said that he does not want the defense to take any further action until all of these records from the so called Jensen review so the review by the U. S. attorney in the Eastern District of Missouri are before the courts so that's the way the judge is saying I want to see all the records in front of me before we really take further steps but critics.

"Little deeper now this morning with CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge the focus has been on these allegations of abuse of power that the president use the full force of his position and that of the White House to withhold military aid from Ukraine and then also to withhold this coveted White House meeting with the president in exchange for investigations into the former vice president Joe Biden and more specifically his son hunter Biden who sat on the board of this Ukraine energy company what also falls into that is the fact that the White House has not provided documents to the congressional house committees that investigated and they've also defied subpoena so that falls into that general picture the Democrats argue is abuse of power by the president of course we don't know whether or not witnesses will be called yet Catherine but Democrats sure want to hear from John Bolton white wine to hear from them well that's right John Bolton is really at the intersection of Rudy guiliani's pride in what he describes as independent investigation on behalf of his client Donald J. trump and then also the interests of the White House and US foreign policy based on the house testimony from multiple witnesses John Bolton saw what Rudy guiliani was doing as like a drug deal he described him as like a hand grenade that would go off Rudy Giuliani told CBS news that if the former national security adviser John Bolton had reservations about his activities in the investigations in Ukraine that he did not make that clear to him at the time Republicans of course get their turn on the Senate floor over the weekend and next week but what are the responses from the G. O. P. so far well the view of Republicans is that the Democrats may wish to have more witnesses but that really is leg work that should have been done by the house investigators it's not up to the Senate to sort of my new ground if you will in terms of the fact finding they also argue that for a president to exert executive privilege or to defy subpoena this is not a crime and it's not in their view an impeachable offense and they also argue that if the house Democrats wanted to enforce the subpoenas they should have gone to court but we all understand is that that would probably run at the time line and run out the clock with the litigation right up until the election that CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge of the conversation with Dimitri and hello you're listening to one of three point five of them and W.

"Right this is something that kind of under the radar a little bit Catherine Herridge was now with CBS news she's a senior investigative correspondent a report on Friday Serra corner picks it up and she has it out as well and what this is about is that John Dorham is zeroing in now now in his investigation in the period spanning from January seventeenth when the president first January twenty seventeen when the president first took office to may of twenty seventeen which is when the Mahler investigation the molar team was put in place so that the period of time leading up to the mall or team being put in place there was a lot going on there that was really dramatic January twenty seventeen is when they briefed Donald Trump in trump tower yeah it's coming giving and the briefing about the dossier it's all the Michael Flynn discussions yeah all of that no according to Catherine Herridge she calls it a quote strong paper trail this trail of documents has reportedly led John Dorham to focus is inquiry into the origins of the rush investigation on that time period and there she according to Catherine Herridge it's leading investigators into possible misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials and that's where they're heading in that time frame that's where most of it seems to be that's is a very fertile ground at that time period for investigators well if Durham is hovering his legal helicopter over the beginning of twenty seventeen that is not good for at all these people who were a part of moving this information around within the government and going after president trump and his campaign that's a bad sign for them bar in Durham as we have traveled around the world for the investigation we know they were in Italy because of justice in a suit right and they they have already asked witnesses about possible anti trump bias among former FBI officials the DOJ in Korean clued scrutiny of former CIA director John Brennan how about a former director of national intelligence James clapper areas former FBI special agent Peter Strock and British former spy Christopher's steel now back in October it was reported the dorm was expanding the scope of his investigation he was adding agency was adding resources and that was to examine that time line up to the appointment of the mall or at of Mahler as special counsel may of twenty seventeen yes V. quote investigation into the investigators was reported to be upgraded to a criminal inquiry later in October we heard that we reported that these and that would give door on the power to empanel a grand jury and hand down indictments dorm has also review the intelligence community's conclusions about Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election he's looking into that right they know according Catherine Herridge little else is known other than dorm is exploring whether a crime was committed by Kevin Kline Smith notice by the way that Catherine Herridge is now CBS and she puts this report out and how much pick up doesn't get by the rest of the mainstream press none like non mana and it's so they're still treating her as a pariah if this in Niagara Falls because it because when she was checking for fox news world you're not allowed to listen to her use her as a as a source of authority even though she's a talented reporter very good is getting re report all of this information out and making a public and she's got a great record for reporting but leave all of that aside she's not allowed to be considered serious and this is inconvenient and pay attention to the way the reporting is going to happen going forward who knows of germs can in the end have actual prosecution of any of these people but I can say remember the James Comey story from last week refined of James Comey is under investigation for a week and a New York times was yeah the way the New York times piece was written we talked about it when I came out was deeply editorialize but one of the the ways they editorialize is this suggests that this is probably the result of Donald Trump trying to go after his political enemies and to the extent that you're gonna see reporting on the subject that we're talking about this morning John dorm looking into the beginning of twenty seventeen it's going to be friend the same way because trump has constantly call for call me to be investigator jailed or whatever blah blah blah it's going to be about how this is a political reckoning and not an actual legal one and I just think it's whole areas to claim that all my goodness government officials may be subjected to unfair scrutiny like are you serious everyone who was involved here was involved in the unfair scrutiny of Americans using the weapons of the justice system against innocent people what is Carter page have to say about this yeah you know what bothers me in this because my bugaboo that it's always some low level staffer who wants of doing time who wants to get front of us is Kevin Kline Smith yeah it was being investigated he was the one who according to Michael Horowitz altered allegedly alter that document yes to get the the FISA warrant that's fine he's on our page he was a lesser known figure but I think the mistake we've made up some outlets have made intentionally is to call him low level yeah that he doesn't want more power of name I know though you know I mean also according to Catherine Herridge among those of cooperating with bar is re tiled retired admiral Michael Rogers the former director of the national security LLC he scored his helping according to this report yeah pay attention to that that's important that I was a big deal because Mike Rogers you know we talk to Joe to Jennifer frequently we'll talk to next Monday we can ask about this but he's constantly pointing to Mike Rogers as the good guy and all of us that I'm a Rogers it was the one who is constantly trying to flag the nonsense remember the intelligence community assessment that came out the beginning of twenty seventeen where everyone agreed that Russia was trying to hurt Hillary and help Donald Trump and they all said they have confidence in that all the intelligence agencies do you know who didn't have complete confidence in that Mike Rogers actors and the NSA and writers had to explain himself is like well we do know they were trying to herd Hillary not so certain they were trying to fully help from he was the only dissenter in the whole group well once again thank you Catherine Herridge for excellent reporting we appreciate at seven

B. I. employment in order to achieve a personally desired outcome after being fired by the president in may twenty seventeen call me later told Congress he believe the memos were his property to share the report also stated that come is memos were not his they were official government records so you had the head of the FBI conducting himself you could write about it my entire life in a cover eighty three pages imagine how much stuff is in there that he did wrong to cover eighty
Comey violated FBI policies in handling of memos
"Catherine Herridge our chief intelligence correspondent fox news joins me in studio Catherine some very major news today breaking from the inspector general at the DOJ involving the fired FBI director James calmly and his handling of some classified and other materials tell us what we're learning well first of all guy it's not every day that the inspector general investigates a former FBI director because they're held to the highest standard because they set the tone for thirty five thousand F. B. I. government employees and what the inspector general found is that director call me violated F. B. I. policy violated his F. B. I. employment agreement and took matters into his own hands when he removed seven government memos documenting his private conversations with the president in order to achieve his own personal agenda which was the kick starting of the special counsel investigation an inspector general Michael E. Horowitz use the word dangerous example being set by director call me so this was misconduct and that is laid out over the course of dozens of pages and you use the phrase personal agenda that's not your editorializing at all although I think it's true it was actually written by the inspector general those words about coming that's right that he took the memos he shared them outside the bureau not only with his legal team who was who was not authorized to receive this information but also a New York times reporter and it was to pursue this personal agenda to kickstart a special counsel investigation and what's important if we just back up a little bit is that this is the same accusation which is made against his former deputy Andrew McCabe that he lied information about the existence of the Clinton foundation investigation in the fall of twenty sixteen to benefit himself personally to make it look like he was objective that he wasn't somehow beholden to the Democrats because of money his wife had received for state race in Virginia so McCabe we might circle back to him because there's a chance he might get prosecutor we had Andy McCarthy on the show yesterday talking about potential indictments coming down the pike for McCabe that will not be the case for calling me right so they outlined all of the abuses or example he's got you know he colored outside the lines of established FBI procedure and he's a leaker that's the other thing that the report found yes and that's important because part of his job as the chief law enforcement investigator for the nation is to prevent leaking and to track down leakers and when you look at the record today by the inspector general and you look at his FBI interview which was recently obtained by judicial watch you don't see the picture of an individual whose candid and forthcoming you see someone who is spinning information to their benefit and yes there will not be a prosecution in this case call me is sort of try to take a victory lap which is almost astonishing on Twitter quoting one part of the IG report he said the I. G. found no evidence that call me or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media then he went on to say I don't need a public apology from those who defamed me but a quick message sorry lied about you would be nice that is from call me of course he is omitting all of the damning stuff in the report but he will not be prosecuted that's correct the justice department has declined to prosecute in this particular case the IG report is eighty three pages long it really is a laundry list of actions by the former director that went against all of the policies and the procedures that he was meant to uphold and he is correct he did not leak a memo to the media that a classified information what the document shows is that he shared memos one with classified information with his lawyers and he did that using a personal scanner and a personal on security email account and on its face that starts to check the boxes for something called eighteen U. S. C. seven ninety three south which is the gross negligence statute for mishandling classified information and if that rings a bell that was the same statute that they investigated Hillary Clinton for violating with her use of a personal server and her violations I think just objectively were far more numerous and far more serious on that front and call me is I mean she was sharing through that leg server other was taught was secret was top secret but the law doesn't you in this particular case what I've heard from former agents is they they know that he was fired very publicly and he was shamed publicly I mean this report does that but then they say there's no carve out in the law for getting fired and being shamed which allows you to escape prosecution and this is what is say unsettling to people because so far we had a handful of FBI executives who violated ethics rules by accepting gifts from journalists they have this led investigators they call it lack of candor or they have released information to reporters which was non public I think in one case it was under seal and none of these people have been prosecuted and there's kind of a joke that circulates in Washington they say maybe there are three tiers of justice there's justice for the average person there's justice for the powerful and connected and then there's the department of it just us to give a pass to F. B. I. N. DOJ people who are coloring outside the lines Catherine last question and I think it's important for the broader contacted by the way folks at home can hear her phone blowing up she is the chief intelligence correspondent she's getting info all the time so she's one of the few people that we allow to have our phones on here in the studio because she could have a breaking news group as soon as she walked out of the studio Catherine some people hearing okay cold the memos leaking you know Russia trump all of that is this the long awaited inspector general that distinction for the inspector general Michael E. Horowitz has had several investigations running in parallel one has been focused really on the actions of the FBI director and the handling of these memos that's what we got right now but the awaited reports deal with Faiza abuso alleged surveillance abuse and targeting of the trump campaign that's really kind of the mother lode in the situation and I believe there's going to be an additional investigation which looks at leaking whether this was a culture within the F. B. I.'s also from the IGS under director call me and then the the violation of ethics rules so accepting gifts from sources or from journalists there's also yet another investigation into this correct issue sat ordered by the Attorney General John Jerome is running at do you have any sense from your sources on the time line of when we might start to see some of these other investigations wrap up and go public with the conventional wisdom was that we would get the call me investigation first which is what's happened this week and it would be the precursor to any big findings on the FISA investigation I think what you the folks at home have to I would not be surprised if some of the files investigation is redacted in part because the US attorney in Connecticut is still pursuing these issues and there may be information they don't want out in the public to me but is the term investigation and possible criminal prosecution which would be the one that's most concerning to some of these

I'm Mark Alewine. News ninety five five AM seven fifty WSB. Depend on it. Brian kilmeade. Back everybody. Joining us now is Catherine Herridge Catherine's one of the busiest people around is Mark meadows. Shook everybody up last night by saying he's got a major announcement about an ambassador somehow involved in the the Fiso warrant as well as the steel report. And then today, we had the release of the papers and the facts behind the reason for the rate of Michael Collins offices, which caused them to flip on the president and be is number one enemy for one of it. He used to be number one ally. Catherine Herridge, welcome back. Thank you for having me got mad. I can't thanks so much for the time. I can imagine you're going through this paperwork, which should we know about the reasons behind the Michael Cohen office Ray last year. Right. I think there two major takeaways from these records one is that the special counsel investigation into Cohen's activities. So the finances of Michael Cohen and his business relationship with then candidate Trump really predates the raid. Which took place in the spring of two thousand eighteen but more specifically that they sought Email traffic from Cohen's g mail account that spans at June twenty sixteen until November twenty seventeen. So of course, that's the period where there were the alleged payments or hush money payments to two women and it takes us through the twenty sixteen elections. So this sort of moved time line forward by by several months. The other is that when you look at the records some sections are heavily blacked out or redacted and those are sections that specifically relate to campaign finance violations, and that's another indicator or another tip that that's a central focus for investigators that remain on the Cohen case. And when you say were it's hard to know what to redaction, but can you imply infer that maybe this has to do with stormy Daniels and McDougal or something else. Well, I I don't wanna guess for folks. What's behind the reductions? But the context of of the directorates. Is in the context of campaign, finance or election violations, and that timeframe of the of the payments again this summer of two thousand sixteen and pass the presidential election. I would say that when you look at the records here. There's only one thing I've seen so far that has sort of a foreign hook or element to it. And that was a consulting group that Cohen hits stood up. It was consulting group where these alleged payments were made from and that was a consulting group that took took foreign money though. I haven't been able to see who those individuals were at this point. Well, when you heard Mark meadows last night say I got a big announcement about an ambassador is involvement in this. Would you thought will you thoughts? A couple of things on the Fiso, which is the the processes used to obtain surveillance warrants relies on something that's called a verified application, and what that means. But the court is at the information that's presented has been authenticated. If you will by the FBI and the Justice department, so they can stand behind it. They have a special responsibility to that surveillance court to tell them about information, which is they say exculpatory or or contrary to obtaining the warrant because only one party goes to that court, not not the subject of the surveillance warrant, and I think the congressman is referring to someone within the State Department based on my reporting because we have a pretty good sense now from these transcripts that have been revealed, and then also records that were unsealed at the end of last week in the defamation suit with BuzzFeed that the dossier was really being sort of the government. Network was being post with the dossier in the final months of the campaign and then during the transition period, and that it was coming at the FBI and the Justice department through many different lanes or many different avenues..
