"Recently with the whole awfulness around our president's handling of covid nineteen in the awful things he said about it. That I'm not GonNa say I'll let you guys decide if you want to say it, And just to see that there were hate crimes being committed against Asian Americans, and I was talking about that on instagram and I was shocked at the number. Of Black, people people representing themselves black. who were like? That's what they get. And sort of about how could they never ride for us? Why should we ride for them? and. It really confused me one because why would you think you are a fan of mine and also think that I would agree with that? Or have any time for that? Too. I was like sort of like in my mind like sort of like I don't understand where that comes from of course thinking about the Asian Americans in my connection to a Bruce Lee comes up and so I really started out is just sort of like my love for Bruce, Lee. Way To go there. I'm a black guy who loves something Asian American. You know. And and as I was writing it, and this is what happens to be harbory works I just start to dig into my own love for it, and but halfway through I was like Oh. This is deeper than I thought. Like I have a career guy who's anti-racist and I'm looking at Brucie's life with Mike I had never framed him as an anti-racist 'cause. Even I was looking too much of the kicks and punches. Right really got deep for me as I was writing it and like, and then to sit and watch in. You know my talk about it. I'll get caught up like like Fisa fury that scene where he says we are not sick. Men always felt like it applied to me as a black kid. like it never was never like. That he's talking about some Chinese. Japanese. Not since I was like no I. Get that feeling as be feeling like the the oppressor cannot oppress me into thinking I am not good. And I was playing fisa fury as I was writing it and I really got caught up in it in his report. Outta me, and then I posted. It just like on medium which had never posted before dislike. I don't like I don't know who's GonNa WanNa read this I. Don't know what's going to happen. I'm just GONNA. Put it up and just sort of feel like I got it out of my system. And then I was really overwhelmed by all the Asian Americans. Who felt like it spoke to them because I really wasn't even writing it. I wasn't trying to convince asian-americans anything. Well that's the beauty of it because it was so like organic and natural, and then kind of flowed into all those heavy subjects that that that it just show that how much you know that you care about this subject, and also the empathy also for what was going on with us in so that was the first time I. Think there there is Kinda like you know ally, ship, or or censorship in this situation I think that one of the things which as an Asian American who has been really I think. Reflecting on myself on my community on the role that we stand in. At this moment. Reading that that a did two things one is, it may be very very consciously fact that. As much as you wrote it in reaction to people who are saying. Hey asian-americans have not stood for US wide. We ride from them. There is a sense in which it. It forced me off of my own privilege to start thinking. Where are we in that in that conversation and have we been doing the kinds I mean? The very fact that that Bruce Lee. Did his work here in America As somebody who went out of the way the color outside the lines very through figuratively and literally somebody who brought in. The African American community, the lat next community as some of his very first pupils for an art that hitherto had been seen as something. Purposely obscured right from from other populations of color the fact that he actually went out of his way to befriend and elevate people of a wide range of races, and especially I think embrace the black community early on as a community that he had shared struggle with is something which I don't think we. Even looking beyond the kicks and punches. Think enough about. and. For me, it is, it has been an extra is saying to myself. Are we doing enough and answering. No, we are not. So, I want to say come out. It was a very profound moment to me to read that essay well. Thank you?

"fisa" Discussed on KNST AM 790
"Whole FISA process is in the whole point of it basically to to can eavesdrop on terrorists and if there is an American and that is there there there is talk to them then they can on mass that person to find out who is working with the terrorist which I still understand because one at that point get a warrant to legally spy on them or or listen to their phone calls right should not be how it works well that's my point that's so I I introduced legislation to do exactly that to eliminate the FISA court and basically because you really don't need a FISA court to to be able to spy on funds on foreign spies and terrorists that Citrix you can do that the question was how do you protect American citizens that's why the FISA court was actually established so so the reality is that the standards are different than than it an article three Constitutional Court circled in article three court we do it all the time we get when you have organized crime for instance you go when you make your case you get your once you wire tap I guess what you do you can ask that it be sealed because you don't want that leak into getting out there and spoiling your case you could do all of that in an article three court this notion of having a secret court that is not transparent is like a star chamber that's really what it is and you're seeing the ramifications when you get somebody like a Michael Flynn where the the distinguished broad throughout the intelligence community the police apparatus of this the country did you go after Michael Flynn for what reason well for political purposes that's what we're doing so do you think that you're gonna be able to actually just get rid of the FISA court I mean they're still even Republicans they love the idea that they could spy on people whenever they want and you know it's it's and and you know that's one question other question is the media is not running with the narrative that look trump's actually unmasked Maura made more and masking requests then Obama did now he's not using it for political purposes that we know of but I mean it seems pretty dangerous do you think you're gonna be able to get the support to to get rid of this well I know and I tell you what those two real quick problems number one we don't control the house and we end there's a collision collision is a bipartisan coalition Republicans Democrats that want to get rid of it but but we can we still can't get enough votes in the house ends and so they passed up a re authorization is sitting over in the Senate right now and Mike Lee was able to get a small amendment on that yesterday yesterday seventy seven votes but it's a small amendment did it that and I don't even get to the weeds and what it does but but it doesn't really move the needle too much and those of us who want to repeal it I mean there's maybe twenty in the Senate and there's probably a third of the house then you've got people who just think that the world's gonna fall apart if you don't have it but I'll just point out for the last seventy days you've not had FISA because it is expired this is a re authorization it's already expired and the world is not falling apart at least except for on the shut downs the coded nineteen S. but nothing with regard to the terrorist front has happened that's because you don't need the FISA court it's it's phenomenal news you just brought up I let's would switch you know my car is a big and running out of time so Arizona is in the first phase I mean we're we're pretty open we don't know about schools yet but do you see I think finally saw the light after some nice gentle pressure from you and and from others and I I thank you for that what about I mean these other places in this country LA county's gonna be locked down for another three months a fifteen hundred sixty nine deaths ten point three million people it makes no sense and in Wisconsin the Supreme Court they're struck down the governor stayed home order I mean I think we're gonna see some uprisings pretty soon if these Democrat governors don't relinquish their power yeah something like a million people of RT's this said I've gone out and end of violated the California extension there according to an article I saw late last night and this morning the bottom line is I believe that there is no constitutional authority from but what most of them have done I also believe that what I keep reminding enter my may look to defense hello folks look at officials we don't have power we have authority is delegated to us by the people who have power and that's the people of the United States they have power and what we're seeing is a massive overreach on the part of government and a massive irrigation of power to the central government which the federal government which not federally more doubts national and and people want to get out now I'm also see servings a servicing people are afraid to come out or they're free to come out because people like Dr Fauci scare the crap out of him and the reality is when you start looking at the science and the data and you get the contrary view from a many many scientists who were looking at the data as well and you looking at data from other countries as well you can you can say all right if you feel uncomfortable coming out or opening your business didn't do by all means stay inside you need don't have to open your business but we would love for Americans to be free again to open their businesses end up being possible be responsible but by golly be free it would be nice last one I got a revert back I'm we never see Democrats ever paying the price you know it's one of the great frustrations we see Flynn get his life ruined and they're like No Way Out I mean do you see anybody and I think it needs to happen for the morale this country do you see anybody on that list of thirty nine names going to prison for what they did I think there's I think people who should I think there's a possibility I am I am I you know the traditional bars down a lot of really good things I'm hoping that that will see it I mean I look at James Comey I mean Kelly the guy is just a a flick of liner I look at look at Peter struck the guy the guy was everybody says call me was the the the hub and everybody else was supposed attorney Peter struck was on every investigation team he's the guy that was that the the hinge been for James Comey and he's also the guy that that basically didn't tell us the truth and at any time and so I think that he's got to be investigated thoroughly and and pay the price there are others that should be paying the price as well so the answer is I'm hope I'm hopes I hope so I mean you don't want to think that you can have this kind of criminality at the highest levels of the federal government and it additionally what makes us into a really ridiculous mockery is that is that for political purposes we we we can't abuse power for political purposes in this country that just that's unacceptable he really do you think that president Obama N. or Joe Biden guilty of abuse of power guilty of a crime here well I I think you're going to see if there's gonna be some blurry lines we've got it we got to see what they knew when they knew it and if the if the crime was committed then you have to did you have to take action do you have to take action yeah not nothing to stop the president even former president he broke the law abused his power broke the law ruin a life broke the law I mean you know that that to me is the only way to stop something like this never happening again otherwise they can be getting away with it yeah we call that in in the in the business I used to be a deterrent you have to tend to deterrence specific which means that the individual is punished and in a way that they can't repeat the same the crime is general deterrence is where you will you you put one or two of these people in prison or punish them then it did it inspires everybody else not to do that kind of action because nobody else wants to be treated the same way and that's what they were trying to do here unjustly they wanted to punish people who support Donald Trump I mean you could see that there was an art a celebrity yesterday you said man I hate all of trump's supporters and you know wanted to castigate us that's he treated that is out there now it's ridiculous absolutely margins so congressman Biggs thank you so much for the time and in your opinion and your hard work I really appreciate it and we will definitely talk to you soon thank you

Kingpins Daily: Henry Hill
"Today's quote is from Mafia so Henry Hill an associates at the Lucchese crime family as many Italian Mafia. Al FISA COOLED. That is. He wasn't associate until his arrest in nineteen eighty off to wish he turned. Fbi informant eventually. He sold his life story to Simon and Schuster in the book. He'll explain the appeal of joining the mob at the age of twelve. My ambition was to become a gangsta. Be a wise guy to me. Being a wise guy was better than being president of the United States to be a wise guy was to own the World Hill. Wasn't the only little boy to see. The attraction of the Mafia lifestyle for decades in the twentieth century. Italian communities like Hills Brooklyn neighborhood. Brownsville showed children what joining one of the crime families could do for you. There was the wealth. The Glamour of the guns. The secrets and the rituals. The respect and fear of the community generally speaking the power joining the Mafia as hill put it was to own the world. Show the president of the United States might own the world too but he owned it from somewhere far away somewhere with alien rules kid from an immigrant family didn't know and thus was unlikely to aspire to in contrast mob guys are wiseguys as hill and his pals called them stuck around the neighborhood in their sleep cars and fancy suits. They spoke a language. The kids could understand a language drawn out of old world conceptions of honor and violence a language memorialized in storybooks in spoken around the dinner table by Sicilian. Grandpas and fact wise guys with such an integral respected part of life in many Italian American communities that they will also called goodfellas hence the name of the Iconic Award Winning Nineteen Ninety Scorsese Film. A film that was based on Henry. Hill's life story. The film like hills quote displays. Just how alluring. The life of King Pin can be despite the violence and despite the possible consequences which Henry Hill experienced in full as a young protegee of the Lucozzi organization in the early nineteen sixties. He was involved with arson gambling. Schemes truck hijacking loansharking assault and drug dealing in the early nineteen seventy S. He served four years in prison for extortion but once he got out he was back on the streets or rather at the airport. One of his most notorious crimes was the one thousand nine hundred seventy eight Lufthansa heist he and several other. Lucchese associates rubbed a cargo terminal at New York's JFK. Airport came away with five million dollars in cash and nearly one million dollars in jewels. It was one of the most lucrative cash robberies ever occur in the United States and hill and his cronies got away with it. Only a small fraction of the lutes was ever recovered and the only person convicted for the crime was an airport worker. Who abetted the thieves but hill didn't escape the law for long two years later in nineteen eighty? He was arrested on drug trafficking charges by turning informant for the FBI hill was able to weasel his way out of both harsh legal punishments and death on the streets at the hands of Lucozzi enemies after a stint in witness protection. He published multiple books about his life. And did the talk show circuit the glamorous life was still his for the taking but even getting out to the mob didn't erase the violence from hills life in two thousand three his son and daughter. Greg and Gina Hill published a joint memoir about their mafia childhood. It clarified the ways in which hills violence and drug use tore his family. Apart as Gina explained in an interview on Fox News on my seventeenth birthday. He beat me with an inch of my life and then he took a butcher knife to a picture of me. Henry Hill may not have served out the jail sentence. His crimes deserved but he and his family paid the price for his glamorous life of Mafia law the little boy in Brownsville Brooklyn got what he asked for but not perhaps what he wanted.
"fisa" Discussed on KTOK
"I think he's he shined like such a bright light during the impeachment insanity and madness and anyway he's done such a great job and anyway he's out there now saying this to say about FISA because now they're talking about getting rid of the FISA court which by the way if they can't fix it we're gonna have to because you can't have the powerful tools of intelligence that we entrust to people that that the ninety nine percent are amazing they keep us safe and secure and they risk their lives for us same with we are we have the greatest intelligence in the world the best we have the best the greatest law enforcement agency the F. B. I. in the world and in order to restore America's faith in our premier law enforcement agency we must reform FISA to ensure our intelligence community our FBI are deterred from ever wielding their significant power to spy on American citizens that's from congressman Doug Collins how do we do that congressman good to talk to you I started out here well we we start off by not accepting the premise of the Democrats who don't wanna talk about the fact that when they when they wanna talk we say we've got to reform father they don't wanna go there because then I have to admit what actually happened and they're not willing to admit that this they help us process broke but it did that tied the president not only the candidate but after his brother and so we've got to get back to the place where if you can just bring the information to the court without it being verified without having you know a certain level skirt and also making sure that we're not violating the cartons in near the corner right you know having lawless warrants out there the volley for Brussels these are the kind of things that have to be in there right now there's a push from the some of the senators who just want to re authorize it with no with nothing you know change that can't happen in the house or some of us bodies towards that well the provisions that need to change they need to be extended or final that but we've got to change the father process itself or otherwise acting support these other expenses without getting some real change the president asked for and we vessel if we can't protect I mean these tools are so powerful that look I'm I'm I have friends in the Intel community I've interviewed many people over the years that tell me if they want to pick up your text your phone conversations you're this you're that they they can do it simply it's easy to do it's not hard for our guys to do any of that they can spy on every American and I've interviewed people that say that they do it as a matter of course and that would be every text every email is and every phone call is is literally transcribed in real time and meta data stored I don't know what's true what's not true but it wouldn't surprise me if we're able to do that for every call text in the mail every second of every day and the problem is is that we're also a country that believes in privacy we have a constitution up we have a right not to be spied on but all of this happened and the question I get asked most often congressman is are any of these people going to be held accountable for their actions and I can give them a hundred percent answered I do our faith and then the Attorney General I do have faith in in Durham I'm but it's so slow people are beginning like roller arise when I say that well you know about her Sir Carter and I was there today feedback we talk about this we do believe there's there's things coming out they believe that the way that it's been handled even of a slower I would much rather have Durham take an extra week or even after two weeks or even in whatever type to make sure that when we get the case it sticks and if so that would nobody can get out of it nobody can you know go around saying no we didn't do this and then they can't prove it I have played with us can happen look it's just a a situation at this point where you have many years of the Obama administration which you politicize ourselves clearly and are taught me not even one percent half percent of the top level of our FBI who determined it was up to them to determine next president and also stop on to we got to put these you know things in place so that people can feel good remember father came about because of abuses from the intelligence community's off work is in the sixties and seventies all American citizens this came into being so that we can actually have a place where those powers are checked we got to now make sure an updated twenty twenty after what we think of the last four years is those sufficient to make the changes and we're gonna put those in place to make sure people can build number one cough that we're getting the bad guys overseas and number two it

B. I.'s handling of the Carter page applications as portrayed in the IG report was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above rose merry call your presiding judge with the FISA court road in the order released by the court the judge gave the FBI until January ten to provide the court a sworn statement detailing how plans to overhaul its approach to future surveillance applications then it goes on she goes on the frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be on supporter contradicted by information in their possession with which they withheld information detrimental to their case because of the question weather information contained in the other and P. I. applications is reliable now I have nothing but well let me be careful about this I want to admonish this judge she had an opportunity to act when it mattered back on April twenty twenty seventeen the landmark legal foundation under its president Pete Hutchison filed a motion a secret motion with this court and it was a motion informing the judge the violations that occurred based on published reports it was known back in April twenty seventeen some of it if not much of it and those exhibits were provided to the judge five days after we file that just five days after we found that the judge ruled as follows order the court is received a pleading titled motion for leave to appear as a make a secure in for inbound quarter directing investigation submitted by landmark legal foundation on April twenty twenty seventeen although presented as a request to appear as an enemy could secure a friend of the court there's no matter pending before the court with respect to which such an appearance would be proper there for order denies request there is no matter pending before the court with respect to which such an appearance would be proper that was always a disingenuous replied by this judge and apparently she changed her mind today lately she changed her mind more than two and a half years later and realize so I have jurisdiction the matter is pending I suppose no never made any sense because a judge's free even after a matter is done to call parties before them in their court room yes in fact the judge believes wrongs have been committed in the court and against the court and so judge call your did not protect the federal judiciary she did not protector on court room she did not protect the foreign intelligence surveillance act for more than two and a half years she allowed these perpetrators to get away with what they did and she could have run into this she could have had an evidentiary hearing right contempt hearing if you will and she chose not to now see jumping on the bandwagon after the icy report after Robert ray one no fan of I mean FBI director ray I should say W. R. A. Y. has announced forty different reforms that he's going to take a look at after I and others including Mike Lee have said you know we have to abolish the court the court failed to do its job and I suspect it won't do its job only now does judge collier issue her decision only now because part of the problem is judge collier and any other judge whoever Caesar's involved as a FISA judge they don't read these documents over a thousand of them were presented to the FISA courts last in a twenty eighteen and only one was denied that's almost a one hundred percent approval record now that's absurd so judge call your has some answering to do if Congress is serious about getting to the bottom of this she and others need to be called before Congress in a legitimate oversight function not to investigate her for criminal reasons but the find out exactly what she and others did did they read did they raise any questions because the person being targeted to the greasepaint targeted they have no presence in the secret courts none show more than two and a half years after this judge in a couple sentences rejected landmark legal foundations very appropriate pertinent motion calling on her to investigate what is taking place and what what's taking place claiming in essence you have jurisdiction anymore since the matter is that before her anymore now she pulls jurisdiction back claims that matter most is in front of her in orders reforms in order says senator the FISA system is broken and in part because the FISA courts are broken including what judge call your did rose merry collar the presiding judge under the desk I'm not fine intelligence surveillance court system I'm not impressed with what she's done here I'm disturbed that it took her so long she writes the FISA court expect the government to provide complete and accurate information every filing with the court without it the court cannot properly ensure that the government conducts its electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there's a sufficient factual basis well judge collier why did you wait wanting to hold your own hearing in secret what did you pull the parties in front of you why didn't you hold an evidentiary hearing you were waiting for the office of the inspector general but you have an independent obligation you're an independent court you're an independent body to look into these matters on your own search all swell that you waited for the executive branch and for the office of the independent counsel to do its investigation but in the meantime they took a year and a half the country's plodding along we have elements within the median elements within our political system who are denying that violations occurred or ignoring them completely and you signed off on these applications you or one of your colleagues did you ever see this court system you are responsible for this to who's going to hold you to account and what did you slough off a perfectly legitimate motion that was warning you any choir ring of you encouraging you to act and you only now there were serious missteps as the inspector general said worse than that of course but there were serious missteps by you judge carrier and your conflicts because without you and your colleagues there would have been no warrant regardless what the FBI did and you chose to sit on the sidelines for two and a half years and watch it all play out use chose to sit on your hands and watch it all planned out until you can get cover from the inspector general's report rather than conduct your own judicial inquiry that is appalling to me this is why when Mike leave senator Lee was on my program last night I said I don't have a whole lot of faith that they're gonna be able to reform the system not only of judges like this even after the fact take their damn good all the time addressing what was obvious over two and a half years ago I'll be right back ban.

"Confidence that the FISA process was followed and that the entire case was awful responsible way by DOJ and the FBI I think the notion of prize was accused here is another instance nonsense conspiracy theory conspiracy theory as I it's interesting to hear come we come out and say that and and you know I guess you give him some credit for admitting it in a little late you know I I don't know I mean I guess you say okay here is easily saying it but it's impossible that and to deny at this point and this is also the same guy as you point out who when this came out said it was complete vindication which they ask Chris Wallace asked about and said Hey you know you said this was complete vindication for your position here's what the I. G. said about that and they played a clip of the I. G. saying no it was definitely not complete vindication others massive problems here and it's true I mean it's obvious right we're all we all saw the report we all can see and hear and read so this is it was a weird P. R. attempt to come out and say you were vindicated and then ten seconds later come out and say well you're right now home is lining the vindication was to say well we were vindicated from the very worst accusations right so to say instead of saying like well why you're very worst accusation by you were vindicated Carter page that was he says you know and and he's playing the line that the media was playing which is there was no political bias that was what the report says that there's no little buys now did they say that it said there was no evidence there's no documentary evidence of political bias right however it does how do you make seventeen writers and they're all going one way and they're not errors they're changing documents falsifying documents the only two explanations for this our political bias they were doing their breaking their own rules to target trump right that's one number two is the break their own rules all the time to get these by FISA warrants the end and it's all tilted towards essentially conviction if you will right which is that's even worse that's worse I mean so which one is it is it that you always fix these things so that you can get or were you targeting trump for political reasons one of the two because the entire system is a disaster if they do this to everybody so in a way you kinda wish they were just doing it because they didn't like trump you know because at least then you don't have to completely scrapped the entire system but honestly until we know the answer to that you pretty much have to scrap the entire system if this is the way they're handling this it's it's what every libertarian warned us about this entire time going to ministration were completely right completely right completely were completely vindicated the libertarians work yes yes correct yes here I was I was looking at the Boris Johnson win and then looking at this impeachment and looking how old the the left here in America has been dealing with things and how they're trying to silence people and I think there's a few lessons that really need to be learned and I think the first thing is the silent majority he is who the Democrats should be talking to and trying to relate to because it's the silent majority not the loud minority that actually goes out in boats right now our society is built on silencing and making you feel alone and you're in the majority it's the same message I gave you during the nine twelve project you're not alone you're not alone there are millions of Americans who feel just like you do and they're not all Republicans summer independent summer Democrats but they don't like the craziness that is happening right now social media social media is not the voice of the majority box don't vote algorithms don't vote people do algorithms make people discouraged algorithms make people feel alone algorithms make people stay home so it's the majority voice the silent majority voice that we need to pay attention to if you're going to win an election that's who you pay attention to not social media and certainly not the press the third thing that I think everybody needs to learn is the mainstream media is no longer mainstream it's not and I don't mean it that they're well they're so far left I mean they're not really appealing to the mainstream anymore they're not appealing to the silent majority they're not appealing to people in the center of the country and it has been replaced but the mainstream media is and has not been replaced by one entity the mainstream media has been replaced by the hundreds hundreds of entities so we've lost some of our cohesion we've lost some of our unity but I believe because we we no longer believe the mainstream media we're better off for it but you should know mainstream media it was your bias your lives your incompetence your arrogance they drove your audience away they didn't find something necessarily they like better he just couldn't take you anymore and you have so leave yourself so badly that it's over because you can't silence thought you can't tell people over and over the sky is green when we all know the sky is blue we're not sure lock homes we do rely on investigations and investigative reporters but we don't trust you anymore the American people are smarter then you've given them credit for and if the media doesn't learn that the media's done done I mean close up the shop sell the lights sell the cameras nobody's buying nobody's watching close up shop the same thing can be said thank god for the progressive era and the the socialist democratic socialist era they are selling a load of goods that the world quite honestly doesn't want except third world countries and then once they get it they don't want it either world's about to change and it just might be for the better because of the arrogance of the left.

"Most shocking to me because we're talking about a lawyer altering document like there's no explanation for that that's a good explanation Unless it was totally a mistake stake like he meant to type something else but even still you don't doctor an email and portrayed as being an email from the the source that you're climbing wrote it so so first of all very shocking that an attorney at the bureau would do that and of course that's material information that should be included if part of what the factual basis for probable causes are these contacts with Russians. And if any one of those contexts was done at the behest of or even just with the acknowledgment or approval of another intelligence agency. That's obviously information. That's that's critical and would actually you know not only would you consider. I mean you'd have to consider for a couple of things if you're going to leave those contacts in your clearly going to have to explain this relationship but I think more likely to just take those context out of the application completely because if they're undermined by the fact that at least some of them were done at the bathtub or with the knowledge of US intelligence agency it no longer provides probably causing. There's there were so many examples of material information that were misstated or concealed from the court as the report says this implicates the entire leadership of the FBI. And then we hear are James Comey the day after or the day. The report comes out saying he's been vindicated and calling for the president to be apologizing to him mm-hmm who should be apologizing to who here. I think you're conflating. Two aspects of the report but the but the bulk of this report is sort of blistering indictment amount of the way the FBI handled its most sensitive investigation that it was conducting and it's totally botched so the bulk of the report report is about the handling of the very technical details about how vice applications are made and how they're processed and that whole thing one one of the reasons. The investigation was undertaken as you may recall is because of calls for it by members of Congress particularly members of Congress Who said this was all? The result of political motivation and political bias at the very opening of the investigation was politically motivated. And that the Carter. The page also in particular was politically motivated. And this is back when we dueling memos from Devon Nunez and and Adam chef so I think it's important important to remember that there's another conclusion reached in this report which may or may not have been what James Comey was talking about. which is that? There was no testimonial or documentary. -cumentaries evidence to support that the investigation was opened for political reasons. In fact if it had been I mean the FBI. I hate to say this. Because I mean I have a lot of very good friends who are either former. FBI are currently in the FBI. But they you know they do leak sometimes and I think if there was a political motive here you would have. I've seen this investigation leaked before the election. Which of course did not happen so I think that it's important? I agree I don't know. What percentage percentage of the four hundred something pages are actually dedicated to this more details about? How does the process work and the mistakes that were made? And that's important. That's why director Ray has come out and said I agree. Not that these mistakes needed need to be rectified. In our processes need to be cleaned up. And he's made some forty recommendations. All of that is very important but I think we can't lose sight of the fact that at one of the keys sort of talking points coming out of the White House and out of the White House's backers is that the entire Russia investigation was politically motivated. And I think that's been debunked at least in part by this mayor. I WanNa go back to something that I asked the four and I know that site is is twenty twenty but if these concealments and and omissions Sir if that hadn't been done and you had all of the information that you didn't have would the Justice Department have applied for that Feis out or for the renewal of that Pfizer to your best ability to to to look back and answer that question so what I haven't done is sit down and tried to like put the the application that's public now which is still heavily redacted. So I can't if I had the original Pfizer I could set it down and I could look at this report and go through each one of the original tea Seven mistakes and then add on the ten more and I could answer that question. I haven't done that so I can't answer it but I can say this us. It was already something as the report. Indicates that those of us at the Department of Justice New was sensitive. Knew that if it was ever publicly we'd be criticized for ask questions about even if there's probable cause is it worthwhile Carter Page knows the FBI's interested in him. He's talked to them. He's written an open open letter to James Comey saying. Why am I under investigation are I'm so you know? What is it really worth it? And there's no question I can say unequivocally typically those would have been even more serious discussion so this is what I don't get and it's really a question about Comey's conduct. How is it possible that an investigation nation? That is this sensitive investigating a nominee campaign for a you know the nominee for a an American political party with an election looming talking about surveillance and very aggressive law enforcement techniques. How is it possible? That Komi wouldn't have brought everyone together at the FBI. The I his leadership and said okay. This is an extremely sensitive investigation with enormous implications. We have to be very careful about all all of the citizens we make. We can't afford to make mistakes here. We have to dot all of our eyes crossovers. He's I don't get the sense that that happened. And furthermore how is it possible that that the Attorney General Loretta Lynch didn't know that this was happening. That seems like a new report shouldn't even know the investigation was going on a massive leadership and the F. B. I. Counterintelligence Investigation of a major party presidential candidates campaign and nobody briefs the Attorney General or no one at at DOJ new at all when it got started no one knew until after that right so cain you didn't even know when the FBI and launched the investigation that's correct now and that's within the rules. It's yes at one of my responses is going to be. Are you shocked by that that nobody even informs you who's in charge of the what the FBI is doing in this area that they're doing such a highly sensitive investigation. You know. I was surprised when I got my first full briefing keeping on this that it was how long things have been going on before. I got any briefing on it when I was still in the government the first like I knew bits and mm pieces but the first sort of soup-to-nuts briefing for me was not until January of two thousand seventeen and so obviously I knew about the piece I knew about individual pieces. I just didn't have a full briefing so one of my responses this the rules have never contemplated this and so technically and the inspector general points this out there was not any violation violation of a rule. But I think we all think that. That's kind of crazy that if you're going to investigate a sensitive matter like this this ought to be something that's discussed all the way up at the highest levels both the FBI and the Department of Justice that said a couple of things. I think to keep in mind which are very much of those sort of hindsight is twenty twenty types of things one is is that counterintelligence investigations are very unlike criminal investigations. There there are all kinds of counter intelligence officer agents at the FBI who opened all kinds of counterintelligence investigations. oftentimes Russia is a piece of this. So we have experts in Russia counterintelligence operations these are investigations nations that do not have to be cleared through DOJ. Because they are they're not done in order to move toward potentially charging somebody with a crime. In fact counter intelligence investigation associations will go on for years the last thing they want to do is have a prosecutor saying Oh. I think there might be a crime. Here let's you know indicted case because then that means. Oh my gosh now. We were going over that we have investigation. WE'RE GONNA lose our intelligence so just to set that level set the stage there. It's it's just not uncommon for there to be counterintelligence investigations going on that. DOJ attorneys don't know anything about all. Right I realized this is different. Because we're talking about a campaign but realize also that as things get started we also have had the situation at least by July where we've had the DNC hacks. We've had emails coming out. We have the wiki leaks part of this. We have the the whole intelligence community community trying to figure out what's going on about a president or presidential nominee call for Russia to investigate hillary to defy Hillary's email. Right so you have. You have a lot of things happening that summer and just to be completely honest. I don't think very many people bowl within the department in law enforcement actually expected Donald Trump to become the next president and so they're thinking we have a counterintelligence investigation addition that is going to teach us about Russian interference in US elections. And this is something that's important not in not just in two thousand sixteen but in every single single election going forward here and elsewhere and so we're going to open this and we're gonNA run it and we're GONNA stay covert about it. And then what happens. He becomes the president and suddenly everything looks a lot crazier honestly then it otherwise did and I'm not excusing it. But I'm I'm just trying to maybe give a little bit of background about how maybe this could have kind of come to be. When did you first read the steele dossier on Buzzfeed when buzzfeed put so you had not seen before the FBI briefed you on it so when you read it? Did you ask some questions so here so this is something else that I think. It's confused because particularly people like Congressman Nunez who who were constantly saying that the Carter page vice was based on this dossier. The term dossier didn't even exist in the rubric of the discussions of the factual basis of the product for the FIFA. There's information rate information provided by different sources. No question. There was information included that was provided by Christopher Steele. And I was aware of that as we're others and that's why we pressed on. who was he what who was paying him for this? And these are all things we need you to include an were included. But this idea of dossier is something that came up much later and included all kinds of stuff that is not in that price rate the salacious stuff all the stuff that you know made the front pages and made it so popular on Buzzfeed had nothing to do with the information or does it does does go to the credibility of the specific allegations that you're using in the Faisal's coming from a source who says hey I've got fifteen things here. I'm I'm going to tell you about and then you discover that a bunch of them simply aren't true than it does raise questions about how much you rely on the other portions. Asians that you're you. That's what I'm saying to you is the rest of that wasn't presented. I don't even think all of that was even written at the time of the of the P.. Tape was the very very first one but that was the very first memo frame Christopher Steele. I don't know that anyone at DOJ knew anything about that. I mean I certainly didn't FBI. The I did because it was. And that's what they were asking their primary source about again. We're getting our time. I think we're going our timelines mixed up here so so let me ask you something else that left out at me which does go to the Justice Department or the relationship between the FBI and the Justice Department. They launch crossfire. Hurricane in the end of July of two thousand sixteen and then in early August or mid August they give the FBI is part of a strategic not GIC intelligence briefing for then candidate trump and this FBI.

"ISIKOFF chief. Investigative correspondent for Yahoo News. And I'm Dan Clyde editor in chief of Yahoo News well the moment seems to be coming inexorably. President trump is being impeached. The House Judiciary Committee is voting to send two articles to the floor of the house next week and Trump will join the illustrious company of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as one of only three presidents to actually be impeached Richard. Nixon of course resigned before the full House had an opportunity to do so and in that sense it is historic but there have been times of the last week or so and hearing people talk about about this being a historic moment. It's doesn't feel as historic as as maybe it should and I think the ultimate impeachment articles that have been voted on by the judiciary issue committee to articles. One of them is abuse of power and the other one is obstruction of Congress. Feels a little smaller than I think. I would have expected. In fact I think the Wall Street Journal referred to it as the incredible shrinking impeachment. I agree There's just it doesn't seem to have the weight. Eight that the testimony and the conduct of Donald Trump justifies for one thing there's no allegation allegation of criminal conduct by the president. We heard all that talk about bribery extortion and other and campaign finance finance violations. Other you know potential crimes but the article speaks of the sort of more amorphous notion of abuse of power. Now I think most people will agree that the trumps comments to presents Alinsky of Ukraine were an abuse of his office demanding manning that or requesting that investigation of his political rival a Joe Biden. But still this is different than Clinton Clinton and Nixon and to some extent. Johnson is well because Johnson was the tenure of office. Act Tenure of office act which I think later was unconstitutional. Listen criminal statute but it was a violation of alleged violation of law with Nixon had clear obstruction of justice. Talk of hush money payments commits a blocking a interfering with a FBI investigation. With Clinton. It's perjury. I would make a distinction between the first article abusive of office. That one I think is you know has a lot of gravity to it is very serious is a is an undermining of national security and undermining wing of the constitution and undermining of the electoral the integrity of the electoral process and all for trump's personal political benefit. That is you know it was a corrupt obstruction of Congress. That's the one that I think leaves me a little underwhelmed underwhelmed Because at the end of the day we have a system with co Equal Co.. You'll branches in which the executive and the Congress are always fighting with each other and disagreeing and it ends up often getting litigated in the courts in this particular case While I think Congress is right and trump should not have have given orders for no one to cooperate ultimately the Democrats didn't let get it right so there is no actual resolution of this right. No yeah no I agree and which I think is one reason why there was a lot of people in the Progressive Caucus of the Democrats. Who wanted this to be broader brought? Who wanted to bring in obstruction of justice of the Mueller investigation? As laid out in Muller's report emoluments of violation John of the constitutional prohibition on that by retaining his business and Nancy Pelosi in our infinite wisdom decided. No we're going to keep this narrow. Well we're GONNA keep it sweet and we're going to do it quickly. And that's what it all comes down to. I mean Nancy. Pelosi was to some extent dragged into this impeachment. She it didn't really want to do it. I think ultimately. She decided that she had no choice. And that it was probably the right thing to do but if she was going to do it she was going to do it as quickly eh simply as possible so that they can move on and the big the big question mark for me. What watch as we go into next week is how many Democrats the fact act? It's now clear. All the Republicans are going to vote against both of these articles but and we had two Democrats who didn't vote to open up the impeachment inquiry to begin with but you got a bunch of others. In trump friendly swing districts Freshman diesel were just elected. Who given even what the polls are showing are clearly getting nervous so you know the the question is is it going to be a handful right less than a handful or more than if it's all Infants single the single digits. Or if it's five or fewer than I think the Democrats are okay but if if it's more than that if you end up with eight ten twelve democratic defections they're not gonNA go into The Senate trial with a whole lot of momentum. I think it takes the wind out of there I agree but meanwhile while all this is going on we have this monster of a report. From the Justice Department Inspector General that while it gave James Comey and his his defenders some good headlines to start that there was no political bias by the FBI when it launched crossfire hurricane the investigation nation into trump campaign officials in their possible ties to Russia. Really when you dig into the details just reams out the bureau for some some really major screw-up we have covered a lot of these internal investigations into FBI conduct. Whether it's the old the I lab ab or Ruby Ridge or you know how many of these have we done this one in some ways. I think maybe the most devastating for the bureau and the bureau leadership. So let's get to got a great gas absolutely Mary mcchord. Welcome to skulduggery thank you. I'm glad to be here so a lot to talk about with this report. which bottom line? The Circle Horowitz the inspector general after this massive investigation million documents well more than a year concludes that there were serious performance failures at the FBI. In the foreign intelligence surveillance warrant for Carter page basic and fundamental errors that raise significant questions regarding the FBI is chain of commands. Management and supervision of the FIS is a process as acting a G for national security. You were in charge of the FIS a process. How did this happen so acting? Ag Important Distinction AG would be the top of the entire department. But I do not get that up to assistant yes uh-huh and also also just to clarify because I was in an acting capacity and not a presidentially appointed in Senate confirmed Assistant Attorney General. I was not responsible for signing the faces that had to go up to someone who was president but not couldn't sign the correct. Yes and I had the very capable Stu Evans. The deputy the Attorney Assistant Attorney General over the office of intelligence who was the primary contact within the department primary high level contact. I would say within the Department reviewing the Office of intelligences work on that so the office of intelligence is the office within the National Security Division that is filled with the lawyers who actually really do the application and they do that based on information provided to them by the FBI formerly known as are correct. Okay we're justice. This is dormant junkies here so wonky for US anyway back to my question. How could this have happened? So so there are a number as you pointed out a number of deficiencies in terms of the information that was provided by the FBI to the office of intelligence into the Department of Justice and it seems probably crazy to most readers or listeners. That there could be mistakes in something as sensitive. Take this and I don't WanNa be little these mistakes at all. Because they are serious and important and I think and I agree with all of the Oh Jeez recommendations and I agree with Christopher raise recommendations Sion's and as a person on the receiving end of the FBI's information. I'm of course very disappointed that despite how much we pressed to make sure that we had everything that could possibly possibly be considered exculpatory included in that face. It now appears that not all of that was provided having said all of that these things happen when law enforcement has to come to lawyers to get an investigative tool unlocked for them. And what I mean is I was a federal prosecutor Husky for twenty years before I was at the National Security Division and in in many ways there's a love hate relationship. I think between law enforcement and prosecutors because prosecutors Peter Stand in the way between law enforcement and this thing they WanNa do editor stand in the way reporters right. Yeah and so law enforcement enforcement to get a search warrant in a criminal case rate has to have that signed off on by a prosecutor before they can go to the judge to take multiple different types of investigative steps CBS to include in the counter intelligence world obtaining a FIFA. You have to go through an attorney that means the law enforcement is at the mercy of the attorney. The attorneys are also at the mercy of the law enforcement because law enforcement are the people who actually have the information and I will tell you in the course of almost twenty five years at the Department of Justice mistakes stakes happen. There are times when I've signed search warrants and I've found out later and any criminal defense lawyer will tell you this too that there would be an omission or a mistake in the applications and I think it happens for three reasons. The worst reason of course is bad. Faith a law enforcement officer who knows something is afraid that if they tell the prosecutor that or the attorney attorney that they won't get their warrant right bad faith another is just mistake like the law enforcement just doesn't think of something there's multiple law enforcement officers involved involved and they haven't put all their information together in some information doesn't get passed on and third is failure to appreciate the relevance or significance of certain information. And that could be that. The law enforcement agent has the information but doesn't think it's pertinent and doesn't share it and so it could be any of those framework. Let's let's talk talk about some of the specific mistakes or omissions. That were made them. Mike and I've been talking about is the FBI talking to Christopher steals main source source and the source. Saying I didn't say those things and that was not included and and just put context on this. It was the Christopher I steele dossier which made all sorts of allegations about the links between trump and the Russians that was the basis for for the warrant against Carter Page one of his campaign advisers because steel had alleged that he had met with high ranking people close to the Kremlin discussed lifting of sanctions in exchange for the Russian support of trump clear evidence of collusion. If true it was the very sorry basis played the central role to getting this surveillance warned and when the FBI went to check out that steele dossier LCI and talk to his primary source. The Guy Says I didn't say that that's a total embellishment. A lot of this was just gossip and bar. Lar- talk now. That's not a trivial mistake. None of that gets reported to you. At the Justice Department. None of that gets reported to the FISA court. That doesn't sound like a trivial mistake. Yes I was very very surprised that that type of information which seems pretty obvious. I think to anyone that would be something that needs to be included in a Faisal particularly when that application has been presented to a court has relied on information and now there is reasonably that information might not be one hundred percent accurate if that information had been brought to your attention. What impact do you think it would have had on how you viewed the application as a whole so? There's two things right I would look at. Should we even be still seeking advice right. Does this undercut the probable cause to the level that we either no longer. I think we have probable cause we still think we have it. But it's thinner. Now it's slimmer now. We're not as comfortable going to the court and so we're just going to not even seek a renewal that's been the first consideration. And then the second if we concluded and I say we because you're a single person probably wouldn't make this decision without talking being with other attorneys re evaluating everything that was in the entire FIFA weighing it on determining do we still have probable cause if the decision was we still have probable cause the bureau still thinks it's worthwhile to seek this. They think that it will be productive going forward because that's always a consideration and renewal hasn't been productive in the past. Do we expect expect to be productive going forward. Then there would decision would be once you you absolutely positively must include that information for the court so that the court court will have it and then the court can evaluate. Ask questions whatever it wants to do. Because it will have to make its own assessment about the impact on another example Carter page apparently had a operational relationship with the CIA and was providing information to the CIA according to the report that was excluded from the FIS application and it's relevant because he was apparently talking to Russians for the CIA and yet the FBI is pointing those contacts as potential evidence of some sort of relationship that he has with the Russians as opposed to the CIA one of the FBI lawyers. We learned from the report actually knew that got an email from the CIA and then instead of forwarding forwarding the information from the CIA doctors the email and rights not a source for the CIA on Carter page. That's the one that was the.

"I do believe that that it is our responsibility we are that we are liberty Vangelis in you should be the first and foremost you should be a better witness than your government so I could talk about this for forever but I have very strong opinions on this and I'm just I I'm I I don't like seeing people try and and I'm not I think that that some people are unaware of that that's ultimately what it entails but IT outsourcing what you should be doing as a representative of the kingdom you're out sourcing the stewardship that has been assigned to you so we got a lot of other stuff to get into including coming up if you sell you comes on the FISA warrant and rand Paul weighs in and the trump derangement syndrome at school we've got all of that and more coming up patron mobile is my cell phone service I just realize like my site my two thermos this from them I actually have to clean because I use them two days in a row said about that we work with them for for a long time and they offer a great phone service it's always really easy so I just so for Christmas I got myself an early Christmas present actually my early Christmas present was getting a new place getting a new water heater and then we're like maybe we should actually get ourselves something nice because that's all we're getting for Christmas so we got I got the new phone right and it is that's always kind of like the the most annoying thing in the world when you get a new phone you have to switch your service everything over patron mobile makes it so easy and honestly I think I was on hold for a second and I'm and I don't want to call and I'm not like a hundred lash and our work with you so you should give me better service than anyone I don't really even tell them who I am and they realize it at the last second they're always just so great working with people I have the Cadillac plan and I pay less than what I did with my big mobile provider here's the thing my money's not going towards an entity that throws money at Planned Parenthood and gun.

"Of the hour well what do we tell you we said premeditated fraud on the FISA court in an operation crossfire hurricane but you know what's so amazing about that is this is not even really in the spectrum of where our which does most of his his work here all of it is proven now and as I look at the extraordinary statements that were released today by the Attorney General and by John dorm I I mean it's almost unprecedented now for a lot of reasons which I went into the first hour today I won't go back into it now bar saying of this IG report how the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of president trump's campaign on the thinnest of suspicions and what did we say premeditated fraud on a FISA court for the purpose of back during which is all confirmed in this in this report spying or all things into trump world trump campaign then transition and then trump presidency and all predicated the whole thing gets launched over what Papadopoulos says at a bar that's it that's how it was but again we have Hillary Clinton in a dirty dot CA nobody ever paid attention to that and when bar is saying the thinnest of suspicions it was launched saying that this report in his opinion the FBI had insufficient basis to justify the steps taken in the investigation of the trump campaign putting him at odds with our what's in some ways aspects more especially about operation crossfire hurricane that you know it's clear from its inception the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory think about that that is huge yet the investigation and surveillance was pushed forward for the duration of the campaign and deep into president trump's administration now when you have a Attorney General saying this on top of his previously made comments and then John doors comments you gotta pay close attention to this because this is now what what we'll look what we learned here is everything we were reported as true we've been right the whole time but it's not one thing that we can see here that we got wrong and that the you know the FBI officials misled the FISA court omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source in a rush to maintain surveillance warrants on members of the trump campaign and while most of the misconduct identified by the inspector general was committed in twenty sixteen and seventeen by this now by these now former FBI officials the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the inspector general's report reflects a clear abuse of the flies up process and this then gets to the comments of John dura I have the utmost respect for the office of inspector general the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mister Horowitz and his staff however now remember inspector general has no ability his feet he's already made referrals for call me advocate bench strop can pay that's all happen in his previous reports I have the utmost respect for him now the real criminal investigation that is in the realm of Dorham our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the justice department he's basically what he's saying here is well no we a lot more coming and our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities by the way this is where we're now going to get into Italy and Great Britain Australia and out sourcing of spying and all of that on top of really really hammering home on on how corrupt and what an abuse of power all of this was and how political it spent and dorm goes on based on the evidence collected to date an hour while our investigation is ongoing last month we advise the inspector general we do not agree with some of the report's conclusions as to prediction and how the FBI case was open it was open on one issue the Papadopoulos call let me go to the page four fourteen we're deeply concerned with so many basic and fundamental errors were made by three separate hand picked investigative teams on one of the most sensitive F. F. B. I. investigations after the matter who had been briefed to the highest levels within the FBI even though the information sought your use of FISA authority related are so closely to an ongoing presidential campaign even though those involved with the investigation knew that their actions were likely to be subjected to close scrutiny we believe that this circumstance reflects a failure not just by those who prepared the pies applications but also by the managers and supervisors in the crossfire hurricane chain of command including F. B. I. senior officials who were briefed as the investigation progress great job Jim call me we do not expect managers and supervisors to know every fact about an investigation or senior leaders to know all the details of cases of which they are briefed however especially the F. B. I.'s most sensitive and high priority matters in a specially when seeking court permission to use an intrusive tools such as a FISA order it is incumbent upon the entire chain of command including senior officials to take the necessary steps to ensure that they are sufficiently familiar with the facts and circumstances supporting a potentially undermining a FISA application in order to provide effective oversight consistent with their level of supervisory responsibility such oversight requires greater familiarity with the facts and we saw in this review where time and again during the interviews happy I managers supervisors senior officials displayed a lack of understanding or awareness of important information concerning many of the problems we have identified in the preparation of fights applications to surveil Carter page crossfire hurricane team fail to comply with that be I follow up policies and in so doing fell short of what is rightfully expected from the premier law enforcement agency entrusted with such an intrusive surveillance tool in light of the significant concerns identified with the Carter page by the application we now know that actually changed they they they've literally altered so that they could use this process anyway and other describing the board the O. I. G. today initiated an audit that will further examine the F. B. I.'s compliance with woods procedures and buys applications that target U. S. persons involved counter intelligence and counterterrorism investigations and they gonna make recommendations and to all of the US army but when you think bar saying that the F. B. I. launch this thing on the finished of suspicions insufficient to justify any of the steps taken is my numbing they limited the FBI had obtained from another U. S. agency details of Carter pages prior work as an operational contact but that other agency he works for our side has he been telling us heating light was on the show any provided information to other agencies call concerning his prior contacts one of which real lap the facts asserted in Faiza included it including a source characterization statement which by the way overstated the significance of steel's past reporting not approved by steals handling agent omitted information relevant to the reliability of person a key steel sub source either way we now know again it was never verifiable steel himself told members of the crossfire hurricane team that person one was a bit of both stir and an ego west I have no idea of any of its true asserted the FBI had as at a sense that steel did not directly provide to the press information based on the Yahoo news this is their hacks we talk about Michael Liz Ukhov and David corn yeah they're exposed here big time they just took they took propaganda ran with it lies and ran with it welcome to your fake news media and shared our Steele had told the FBI he only shared with the is a lecture related research with the F. B. I. fusion GPS is quiet the premise was incorrect contradicted by documentation in the woods files deal had told the FBI you also gave information of the state department they omitted Papadopoulos's consensually monitored statements exculpatory let's put it that way as a related outside groups they'll minute pages consensually monitored statements literally never met or said one word to Paul man a fort wow mazing you could say that then it gets changed around isn't it omitted other statements paid page made that were inconsistent with their theory that I haven't met certain individuals see where this isn't going here all of it they don't provide anything that was correct this you don't go back to the beginning of what what what matters here what matters here is well had we had we have the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal ever not only is he talking about severely flawed fi's applications they'll use to properly vet steel and seek information about Clinton funding what else what else do we find out they sought to spy on Carter page because agent thought his past relationship with Russia could be a clandestine relationship but take out the actually work for another agency with three letters when I ask for the motivations behind the steel dossier the agent involved doesn't respond and everything that we've been saying no dot CA no FISA application Warren approved that is clear without the steel dot CA they would not have gotten the FISA application approved the FISA application remember the bulk of information from the the fights application was almost entirely based on the steel dot CA we learned that today do you know how much more we have to know here but this is you know nothing but corruption at the highest level this was about getting trump this was about destroying this is their whole insurance policy you know you look at every aspect of this yeah you have the what you know what was still hired to do well now we know steel under oath said I've no idea of any of its true yet be I can articulate why it deems steals reported to be credible because they were advised based on information from steel that steel was specifically hired by an individual to provide the information on the candidate they failed to do they they failed to tell the court that Hillary paid for this how do you how do you not tell the court what is the number one conclusion in all of this how do you get that you don't that's the old and seek information about you know being funded by by the Clinton camp well they have that might be you know the dirty dossier by the way played a central role in the decision to seek Fizer and by the way they never bothered to ever corroborate any of it and they used it anyway because it was the only part that they can use this is devastating but I'll tell you what's even more devastating is that now the now you have the prosecutor involved in the real criminal investigation is R. which never had that power to convene a grand jury order press charges on anybody but they found the quantity of the missions and inaccuracies at all the obvious errors that were made deeply concerning you think may have improperly substituted their own judgement instead of what the facts are yeah that would be because they hated trumps so so bad so many basic fundamental errors were made on four five applications by three separate hand picked teams I'm one of the most sensitive FBI investigations that was brief to the highest levels within the FBI and FBI officials expected would eventually be subjected to close scrutiny raise significant questions according regarding the F. B. I.'s chain of command management etcetera etcetera.
