Rudy Giuliani a move he said he disagreed with a political appointee in former trump donor Mr Sunland is not the sort of person the admit the station might consider a deep state representative but many of the officials who have broken ranks and testified behind closed doors in recent days are career civil servants and president trump has attributed the entire impeachment inquiry to a conspiracy of partisan bureaucrats buried and the permanent government of the United States. He's the first president to become frustrated by the vast apparatus of the US government yet as the Watergate and iran-contra scandal showed trouble comes from adding to bypass the administrative state to get stuff done the examples of pushback we've seen have not been partisanship as he claims but rather unwillingness to act as sends on his behalf says Rebecca amber a former State Department attorney who is now a Boston University law professor in an email this story was reported by Peter for the Monitor President Donald Trump has cast himself as a staunch friend of Israel but what Israel it's most is for the US to remain active in the region withdrawal from Syria is causing concern for decades.

"He gives you the latest breaking news when he hits the air. This is the Sean Hannity show. Here's what I wanna know. Who's the he and he's not he's been candidate Trump? So when you say, no Donald Trump's not in connection with a question going to become president. What's the it? Chairman Johnny that needs to be taken in the asking, look if you want to have a debate over a two letter word we're to have to. What did you mean by Mr. gowdy as I've stated that tax was written late at night in shorthand? I don't care. I don't care what the words. Longhand cursive. I don't care about any of that. I want to know what it meant aged struck. It would be his candidacy for the my since. Would not vote him into office. Right. Right. Well, we will yet. Well. The American people is that right? That's your testimony though, will stop it. You were speaking on behalf of the American people, correct? Mr. Gallo what my testimony is. And what I said during extensive asking you this question during my view is. I don't recall writing that text text what I can tell you is that text in no way suggested that I are the FBI would take any action to influence the candidates. Fantastic question. Nobody I understand that my sworn testimony will not be enough for some people after all Americans are skeptical of anything coming out of Washington. But the fact is after months of investigations, there's simply no evidence of bias in my professional actions. And I'm particularly proud of the work that I and many others did on the Clinton Email investigation. Our charge was investigated competently honestly an independently, and that's exactly what happened. When you when you bring up integrity issue, and it's interesting you and then the gentleman from Texas raise this in a way that almost pushes it is insulting. If you're gonna be saying, I'm here under oath. I am not lying. I have never lied under oath that. I never will. And so the insinuation not even insinuation direct comment that you somehow say you have an integrity issue is insulting. I take offence. It is incorrect nothing I never get your personal life. I just simply said the amount of time that you were spitting on the taxpayers dollar wasting it when you were supposed to be doing your job texting back and forth on a problem. Things. Gentleman has already answered that. All right. Twenty four now 'til the top of the hours. We continue this this this has been now the most revealing two weeks we've had and it's the result really of the courage of one congressman is name is Doug Collins. We're gonna talk to in a minute from the great state of Georgia and in the two week period. We now have the transcripts. Remember these were behind closed doors. Well, you know, interviews if you will Abruzzo are of Lisa page Peter Struck, and now we find out a lot more as it relates to all of this since we had the release we have, you know, we now know because David Kramer, he's the guy that worked for McCain who gave the Steele dossier unverified to BuzzFeed John McCain is the one that admitted giving the Steele dossier to the FBI. And now that we have a transcript of Kramer's testimony again, thanks to congressman Doug Collins in a libel suit released we now yesterday late yesterday. We learned the Kramer spread the unsubstantiated now debunked anti-trump material all over Washington during the presidential transition. It was also revealed before the campaign, you know, so the ballot when you really take all of this together what we see is there was election meddling from Russia using Russians, and it was being disseminated by the highest ranking people in our government, and what we learn. Learned in a lot of these instances first of all everybody was worn by Bruce or we learned that a week ago. Bruce told everybody that the Steele dossier that remember Andrew McCabe said without the dossier. We don't get the FIS warrant we know that in fact, it they every person was warned it was unverified. Knock corroborated Hillary paid for it. It was politically tainted and Christopher Steele hated Donald Trump had wanted to prevent him from winning the election now as it relates to election interference. So they took this propaganda. These lies we now know about two hookers urinating in a bed in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow and about Donald Trump's hotel room, and that was spread and to the American people. They were purposely propagandize with Clinton bought and paid for Russian lies. And by the way, sadly, you can say DNC Russian paid for bought and bought and paid for Russian lies. You could say the FBI because they were paying steal too. So we had election meddling. And what we learned is it. All came from the Democrats all came from Hillary. It was designed and used to misinform the American people before the election to create an image of Donald Trump that was false based on lies. So that people would vote for Hillary. Well, that's Russian interference paid for by Hillary and the DNC and a Russian oligarch and the FBI they're all paying steel and on top of that then they abused their power even further. It's not just that the go ahead. Even though they're warned in August. The two thousand sixteen that she paid for it. It's political steel hates Trump wants them to lose. And then they use it as the foundation for a warrant. In other words, a conspiracy that they committed against the Pfizer court to deny an American citizen, his constitutional rights, but even more importantly to get to the inner workings of an opposition party candidate's campaign on the eve of an election. Remember, this was mid October James Comey signed off on that original a warrant, which means that he was saying that it's been verified it's corroborated. It's true to the best of my knowledge. We now know that they never told the fisa court on purpose that Hillary paid for it. John Solomon's big story yesterday where they literally withheld from the Pfizer court exculpatory statements of George popadopoulos Carter page, and so then, you know, months later after the warrant was issued to get into the Trump campaign visa, the Trump campaign associated page. Well, then you know, months later that was issued in October. But then and renewed before James Comey everyone into the Oval Office. I'm sorry in Trump Tower, talk to them, President-elect Trump and said yeah this dossier exists salacious? But it's not verified by that point twice. The Pfizer court was told just the opposite. Now, this down tells us this is on top of what Lisa page said who confirmed and corroborated as did Peter Struck and their testimony that all of this investigation. We now know was being orchestrated and lead right from the top of the DOJ that would be Clinton's that would be Obama's Justice department, and it confirmed everything we knew we knew Hillary violated the espionage act soda James Baker. Komo's chief general counsel number one lawyer at the FBI at the time he knew she should be indited for for what she did relates to the server in a mom-and-pop shop bathroom closet. He understood all of that. He's the one that said, yeah, she violated the espionage act. And of course, it's obstruction and pages testimony confirms that they wouldn't even give them the emails if they had the other thirty three thousand emails, Loretta Lynch was personally making every decision that. That same Loretta Lynch that Bill Clinton on the tarmac at a Phoenix FBI airport. Final decision was made the same one that looked Jim call me in the eye and said well as relates to the Clinton investigation, it's not an investigation. It's a matter. And then, of course, he goes along with it. And what they're saying. Is that in fact, Loretta Lynch, new all of it? Investigators asked Loretta Lynch headline on red state today. Why didn't the DOJ and FBI give Trump a defensive briefing if they suspected members of his campaign had ties to Russia? Why didn't they anyway, let me bring into this? Doug Collins is with us congressman Collins, and who said that he was releasing all of these transcripts on his own personal. I thank you for your courage. How are you, sir? Sean how about you. Don't really good. Thanks to you. Now, there is a plethora there is there's so many documents that we have not seen yet. You have finally opened the door and confirmed a lot of what I've reported and this team that I put together that the the best reporters in the country. On the biggest scandal abuse of power. What did these releases tell you? It tells me it goes legitimacy what we've been saying you've been saying many others have been saying this was much bigger than just simply a passing fancy. This show is Peter Struck had very much of what I would just call an disability complex that. He was the the one that wanted had high operations for going hop in the FBI, but he also had that I can take on the world. He showed it in his recklessness in his affairs. He showed it as a recklessness and how he dealt with security clearance, which by the way, I ask him about him showed in the hearing that same hearing that you played earlier that he was out of scope for his own security glares. It should have been taken off the Email investigation until he got back clear read out. He was never done. Both he stayed on the investigation. This shows that the deal Jay under President Obama had serious flaws that goes back to a very corrupt romburg not only at the top five, but within FBI obstruct page McCabe who thought they were invincible operated out. But what do you take out of the them both saying that the attorney general at the time Loretta Lynch, she was she was running the show. Well, that brings up the second point that has come out of this, which I think has been one of the best things this week talking to you. But also putting these people can go through them. It is now bringing back the conversation and many of us wanted to have and continue to Bush bit Loretta Lynch, and the ended of Justice with the ones that will reinterpreting all saying that they were a matter that we're not going to be dealing with an investigation issue that they wanted to sweep under the rug. They wanna take gross negligence. I'll they read into the wall and intent standard which one there that came from the top that showed that will personally involved in this more than anything before the grandchild meeting on the tarmac. Everybody was a farce. So this is just. I want to highlight what you're saying. So our audience is really really clear on this. So it was the DOJ lawyers working directly under Loretta Lynch. According to the testimony of page and stroke and page had been authoring along with Komi and others. This exoneration now this was all being written in may something Komi testified for the record. He said that he'd never did. He never wrote an exoneration before an investigation, we didn't interview Hillary or the main people until what the seventeen people just days before they interviewed Hillary that wasn't ally. But they'd already written on the exoneration. But what you're saying here about Rian interpreting the law, I would take it a step further when they removed the legal terminology terminology gross negligence and replaced it with extreme carelessness. And now, we know they added something that does not even in the law. They built it out of whole cloth. They'd literally ignored the law and put and made up their own law as they went so that they could exonerate their most favored candidate and to do that. It'd be a crime wouldn't it? Wouldn't it be obstruc? Acting justice. I think to me it goes back into it takes investigation going on it really became a force investigation. Not even call it that because if you're not if you're starting out with the premise, we're not we'll go handle this as a matter..

Well, you know, interviews if you will Abreu sore of Lisa page Peter Struck, and now we find out a lot more as it relates to all of this since we've now had the release we have, you know, we now know because David Kramer, he's the guy that worked for McCain who gave the Steele dossier unverified to BuzzFeed John McCain is the one that admitted giving the Steele dossier to the FBI. And now that we have a transcript of Kramer's testimony again, thanks to congressman Doug Collins in a libel suit released we now yesterday late late yesterday. We learned the Kramer spread the unsubstantiated now debunked anti-trump material all over Washington during the presidential transition. It was also revealed before the campaign, you know, so the ballot when you really take all of this together. What we see is there was election meddling from Russia using Russians, and it was being disseminated by the highest ranking people in our government, and what we learned in in a lot of these instances first of all everybody was worn by Bruce or we learned that a week ago, Bruce or told everybody that the Steele dossier that remember Andrew McCabe said without the dossier. We don't get the FIS warrant, we know that in fact, it they every person was warned it was unverified not corroborated Hillary paid for it. It was politically tainted and Christopher Steele hated Donald Trump and wanted to prevent him from winning the election. Now as it relates to election interference. So they took this propaganda. These lies we now know about two hookers urinating in a bed in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow and about the Donald Trump's hotel room, and that was spread and to the American people. They were purposefully propagandized with Clinton bought and paid for Russian lies. And by the way, sadly, you can say DNC Russian paid for bought and bought and paid for Russian lies. You could say the FBI because they were paying steal too. So we had election meddling and what we learned is year. It all came from the Democrats all came from Hillary. It was designed and used to misinform the American people before the election to create an image of Donald Trump that was false based on lies. So that people would vote for Hillary. Well, that's rush. Shing interference paid for by Hillary and the DNC and a Russian oligarch and the FBI they're all paying steel and on top of that then they abuse their power even further. It's not just that the implementing they go ahead. Even though they're warned in August. Twenty six. Cheap paid for it. It's political steel hates Trump wants them to lose. And then they use it as the foundation for is award. In other words, a conspiracy that they committed against the Pfizer court to deny an American citizen, his constitutional rights, but even more importantly to get to the inner workings of an opposition party candidates campaign on the eve of an election. Remember this was mid October James Comey signed off on that original Fiso warrant, which means that he was saying that it's been verified it's corroborated. It's true to the best of my knowledge. We now know that they never told the visor court on purpose that Hillary paid for it. And we have John Salomon's big story yesterday where they literally withheld from the Pfizer court, exculpatory statements of George popadopoulos and Carter page, and so then, you know, months later after the warrant was. Issued to get into the Trump campaign vis-a-vis via Trump campaign associated page. Well, then you know, months later that was issued in October. But then in and and renewed before James Komi everyone into the Oval Office. I'm sorry in to Trump Tower talk to them President-elect Trump and said, yeah this dossier exists it's salacious, but it's not verified by that point twice. The court was told just the opposite. Now, this down tells us this is on top of what Lisa page said who confirmed and corroborated as did Peter Struck in their testimony that all of this investigation. We now know was being orchestrated and lead right from the top of the DOJ that would be Clinton's that would be Obama's Justice department, and it confirmed everything we knew. We knew Hillary violated the espionage act so to James Baker komo's chief general counsel number one lawyer at the FBI at the time he knew she should be indited for for what she did is relates to the server in a mom-and-pop shop bathroom closet. He understood all of that. He's the one that said she violated the espionage act. And of course, it's obstruction and pages testimony confirms that they wouldn't even give them the emails if they had the other thirty three thousand emails Loretta Lynch was personally making every decision yet that same Loretta Lynch that met Bill Clinton on the tarmac at a Phoenix F B O airport. Final decision was made the same one that looked Jim Komi in the I said well as relates to the Clinton investigation. It's not an investigation. It's a matter. And then, of course, he goes along with it. And what they're saying. Is that in fact, Loretta Lynch, new all of it? Investigators ask Loretta Lynch is a headline on red state today. Why didn't the DOJ in FBI give Trump a defensive briefing if they suspected members of his campaign had ties to Russia? Why didn't they anyway, let me bring into this? Doug Collins is with us congressman Collins, and who said that all he's releasing all of these transcripts on his own personal. I thank you for your courage. How are you, sir? Sean. How about you? I'm doing really good. Thanks to you. Now, there is a a little a plethora there is there's so many documents that we have not seen yet. You have finally opened the door and confirmed a lot of what I've reported and and this team that I put together that the best reporters in the country. On the biggest scandal abuse of power. What did these releases tell you? It tells me it gives legitimacy to what we've been saying you've been saying many others have been saying all this was much bigger than just simply a passing fancy. This show is a Peter Struck had very much of what I would just call an invincibility complex that. He was the the one that wanted had high aspirations for going hop in the FBI, but he also had his aspiration that I can take on the world. He showed it in his recklessness in his affairs. He showed it as a recklessness and how he dealt with his security clearance, which by the way, I asked him about him showed in the hearing that I'm hearing that you played earlier that he was out of scope for his own security clearance. They should have been taken all the Email investigation. But Patil he got back. He clearly have been read out. He was never done. Both he stayed on the investigation. This shows that the DOJ under President Obama had serious structural flaws. That goes back to a very corrupt romburg not only at the top. It seems like. But within the FBI obstruct page McCabe who thought they were invincible, and that sort of what they operated as, but what do you take out of the them both saying that the attorney general at the time, Loretta Lynch, she was she was running the show. Well, that brings up the second point that has come out of this, which I think has been one of the best things this week talking to you. But also putting these out so that people can go through them. It is now bringing back the conversation and many of us wanted to have and continue to push that Loretta Lynch, and the and the department of Justice were the ones that will reinterpreting all things that were this is a matter that we're not going to be dealing with an investigation. It was a issue that they wanted to sweep under the rug. They wanna take gross negligence. I'll they read into the law and hint standard, which one there that came from the top that showed that Loretta Lynch was personally involved in this more than than anything before the infamous grandchild meeting on the tarmac which everybody knew was a farce. So this is just want to really highlight what you're saying. So our audience is really really clear on this. So it was the DOJ lawyers working directly under.

"It. You know, we've done eight hundred sixty nine episodes. Now, we've had a couple where we've added come back. And and say, hey that prediction was off. I mean, remember. The Blasi fourth thing. I'm like, she's not going to show. I said, hey, guys, Scott that went wrong it happens. But this is important. It's critical stuff. All right. I got a lot to get through. So I want to move onto this Komi. Again, yesterday's answers are just unbelievable. And as I've been going through the transcript, some of the stuff is just staggeringly bad, one of them in particular, which was highlighted by the Wall Street Journal today to there's a couple of exchanges, which Jim Komi which are. So unbelievably telling us to this man's hubris. His chest. I, hey, look at me. I'm Jim Komi. I don't live in the constitutional Republic lay top same wa right? If I've horrible French, you know, I am the Republican. I'm waiting for him to say that. Right. That's me. He's so such an ego maniac. So take a quick listen to this exchange. It's incredible Trey Goudy. Hey, do you recall who drafted the FBI's initiation document for that late July twenty sixteen Russia investigation? Komi I do not. What you you don't even recall who initiated this thing? Would you? Now, get you keep in mind already knows the answer to this. So he says would you disagree that it was Peter stroke Komi, I don't know one way or the other Mr. gowdy, do you know who approved that draft of an initial plan for the rush investigation of late July twenty sixteen Pistre Komi. I don't so. So this guy the FBI director former FBI director Jacoby is about to initiate the most significant impactful counterintelligence investigation against a presidential candidate in modern the United States history. He has no memory at all who started or how it start. None. And we're supposed to take this guy. Seriously. Jim Komi, call my book, I like to call me. But by book actually has facts in it, Jim Kobe has no idea folks, no idea so again harping on yesterday. So I want to stay on this too long. But just doubling down his Jim commes one of two things. He is either a pathological liar or he is. Simply the most incompetent FBI director in the history of the Federal Bureau of investigation and there've been a few doozies in there. There's another one again highlighted by the Wall Street Journal today. Mr. gatty, how does the FBI launched counterintelligence investigations? What documents are required? This is incredible. Joe I'm not making this is the transcript, Mr. Komi. I don't know for sure because it's open far below the director's level, but there's documentation and criminal investigations and investigations to explain the Predication for the opening of a file that is the basis for the opening of a file, okay gowdy says well, well, who at the FBI has the authority to launch a counterintelligence investigation into a major political campaign and went that eventually have to be approved by you. I mean, he is the director, right? Mr. Komi, I know for a variety of reasons, I've never listened to this. I've never encountered a circumstance where an investigation into a political campaign was launched. And so I don't know how it would be done. You see what he did there? Now, I got an Email morning from God regular regular Email as good guy knows his stuff. And he said, you know, I picked out something interesting, which statements like that. Listen to his answer here to gatty counties. Asking him who in the FBI has the authority to basically initiate, a counterintelligence investigation into a major party presidential candidate, clearly the repre seizures, I explained this yesterday commes answers very telling he says, I don't know basically, we've never launched an investigation into a political campaign. Folks, why did call me one all this stuff public? Now. It makes sense for the same reason Dianne Feinstein, right? The same reason Dianne Feinstein leaked testimony of Glenn Simpson from fusion GPS. Remember that show?.

"Congressman, if this is true of deputy attorney, general Rosenstein did in fact talk about wearing a wire to record the president. Is that appropriate whether there was some sarcasm involved or not? Well, I, if it's sarcasm, if this was said ingest, then that's one thing. If this was said seriously, it's something completely different. But look, I think, probably at any given time during the course of the administration, a great many people have wondered whether this president was fit for the office and whether they had to contemplate the extrordinary step of invoking this article, whether they came close to doing it, whether they were deliberating about it when the president was in one of his most erratic and dangerous moods. It's very hard to say the idea of a discussion about the idea of invoking the twenty fifth amendment that is certainly a serious thing to to bring up, especially for somebody in his position has. I mean, do you, would you have any concerns? If if he did actually have discussions about that, regardless of the wire. Well, I would have concerns certainly, if the presence conduct rose to the level where you had top people at the Justice department or other cabinet officials who were openly discussing ruminating or joking about whether they needed to pull the trigger on the twenty fifth amendment or whether they needed to start gathering evidence with the president, be justified in firing Rosenstein, absolutely not. And we ha- we can't dismiss the possibility. Maybe the probability that this is being teed up by the presence allies who want to get rid of Rosin rod Rosenstein. And I think we have to look at this in the context of what's happened over the last week, and it begins with an about face in the congress of for months and months. The Democrats on the intelligence committee have been urging the release of the transcripts of the witnesses and the Russian vestige Asian, and the Republicans refused Mr. Nunez refused Mr.. Gowdy refused. Then all of the sudden. The chairman goes on FOX and says, we want to release the transcripts. Now, what precipitated this was at the Manafort guilty play? Did the Trump lawyers say we want access to this because the very next day, the president himself issues, this injunction that he wants these classified documents, released a whole different set of classified documents. This looks like a coordinated effort for those who believe in. You know that there's a deep state conspiracy against the president, doesn't this kind of fit into that that idea? Well, it could fit into a completely different idea and that is that the president is so unstable that lifetime career public servants who have worked in democratic administrations and Republican ministrations. Many of whom who are Republicans like rod Rosenstein have to contemplate whether the constitutional provision applies when the president is incapacitated. I mean that is alarming. For those that are ready to believe. There's a deep state, those kooky conspiracy theories, certainly they will seize on this as they will seize on anything else. And it may be very well being pushed out there by people who think that this is a useful way to defend the president and Rosenstein is fired. What then what happens? What happens to the motor Rosenstein were to be fired. This would be another clear demonstration of obstruction of Justice by the president and the immediate aftermath. We have to sit or, you know, what does that mean into terms of our system of checks and balances? What is the response of congress? And probably most importantly, will there be any Republicans who are willing to defend the institutions of our government? Sadly, they have been very few in number. I would hope if there's any effort to obstruct the investigation, like the fire rod Rosenstein that congress would pass a Bill in stating the independent counsel law that would protect Bob. Congressman ship. Appreciate your time. Thank you. Thanks Anderson. I want to continue this discussion, including how stunning just the fact of it all is and where this might lead series implication some pundits, even using the word constitutional crisis joining us CNN political analyst, Gloria borger, David Gergen, Carl Bernstein also senior legal analyst, John dean, Gloria, or you've been talking to people. What are you hearing about about Rosen's scenes, job security tonight? Well, you know, you wouldn't bet on his job security, but then again for almost a year, we've been talking about Rosensteins job security..

"Poll actually yesterday showing that most a majority of respondents saying let them all invasive investigation take its time and come to its conclusion rather than the other choice was just wrap it up so i think that's that i don't think that view has probably changed and i think the base does want to see the investigation finish if it was surreal to watch the struck hearing imagine sitting at the center congressman eric's wall was there this is chuck in a moment we will continue with the hearing but based on your refusal to answer the question at the conclusion of the day we'll be reassessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation appoint of artemis chairman committee also consider contempt for mr bannon who refused to answer mr gowdy questions when he was actually under subpoena that proper point of order in this inquiry through inquiry that iran is controlled by the gentlemen from harlem entry inquiry parliamentary inquiry is an order yourself you know south carolina there were so many times the california democrat joins us now eric where it felt like republicans were asking him questions but then when he started giving answers he didn't like they would cut him off to try and stop those answers from being on the record because it wasn't going exactly the way they wanted to what is your take as to what exactly happened yesterday good morning mika the republicans did not show up yesterday to hear the answers they wanted to use the questions to undermine bob muller's investigation and i asked for mr bannon to be subpoenaed because he was under subpoena when he testified before the house intelligence committee a number of members including mr rowdy asks him questions about his involvement with the russians during the campaign and the administration he refused to answer but he was never brought in for contempt proceedings as was threatened of mr struck and so i wanted to make sure that the public saw the deep d eap inconsistency which i think really illustrates that this is all an effort to protect the president and nothing more than that when our ballot box in our democracy needs more protecting than ever david ignatius congressman i wanted to ask you what she would say to member of the public who is watching this who's conclusion was this is all just politics vata know about peter struck but it's just a circus and there is that feeling of the country a lot of people fear that that's going to undermine muller's investigation get swallowed up in this political environment do you think that can be prevented yeah i would i'll say it was the wrong here in the wrong priorities that children are still separated at the border this is actually the committee that has jurisdiction to do something about it and they did nothing for those children yesterday but david i would also say you know for future kids who read about history in the classroom i hope they saw yesterday that my democratic colleagues showed up and they fought for the rule of lies we see it under attack every single day we were not going to allow the republicans to break the safe of the fbi evidence locker to try and pull out evidence to turn it over to a subject in the investigation the president of the united states that we stood firmly against it and i don't think the republicans accomplished what they sought to accomplish yesterday but also taking one step back here when you put this in the greater perspective president trump has attacked james komi and peter stroke repeatedly throughout this investigation but those two have put their right hands up have gone under oath to talk about their involvement in the russian investigation that distinguishes them from him so let's see if he's willing to do the same and talk with bob muller congressman is heidi how you doing we also learned about some of the context of these texts that were sent for instance the republicans came back again and again to this text we will stop it and he was allowed to give some context on that and said look this came after a series of events including trump denigrating the parents of a fallen war hero what did you make of his opportunity there to kind of put some of these texts in context well i i don't like that he was talking that way because we want fbi agents to be sort of above the politics and not even have the.

"United states against russia so this is a brilliant guy who knows investigations in charge of are involved with two major investigations one with hillary clinton and of course this one and you had bumbling freshman congressman matt gates looking down at their notes trying to figure out how to how to sort of catch him in something when there was nothing a dentist reading body language barbara helped me understand what the republicans accomplished here did they get what they wanted not think so in fact i agree with clint i think that peter struck acquitted himself quite well i think he wanted this opportunity to tell america that he was not biased that this was just a personal opinion and to demonstrate the very professionalism that he uses and that the fbi uses also that this was really just political theater and i think they weren't so bumbling i think the congressman knew exactly what he could in couldn't answer there are regulations that are worked out in advance about what a congressman witness may testify and they knew he wasn't going to be able to talk about a pending investigation and yet they wanted that opportunity to take him on all right let's how'd y'all let you jump in but let's i listen to little bit more here of the testimony from capitol hill in front of you have a one sheet of paper that was presented to your few minutes ago and i'm gonna just go to go to a date and then ask you to read your own words on october twentieth two thousand sixteen i can't pull away what the an i defer to the chairman just one letter if you don't mind why the f what the f happened to our country lease okay read it again that way sir did you not was gonna tell you just want to hired to repeat it please okay sir sure happy to indulge you by the way i'm a dentist okay so i read body language very very well and i watched you comment and actions with mr gowdy you got very angry in regards to the gold star father that shows me that it's an neat leah part of you and a bias so i disagree i don't know if you're saying this is experience is like being at the dentist if that's what you're i would i would tell you sir i which i'm down in my response what you see in my response is a genuine passion for the united states of america this man has done gentlemen from south africa's full suspend for a moment is the disgrace and it won't be recaptured anytime soon because of the damage you've done to the justice system and i've talked to be i just around the country you've been barest them you've been barest yourself and i can't help but wonder when i see you looking there with a little smirk to how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's and lied to her about business chairman this raging ability of his shame on ways in new york as chairman powerful harassment the with that you need medication yeah it does so there are a couple of things that were pointed out there that just seemed to me to fly in the face of right and wrong the rudeness and the really incredible comments on the part of the president about a goldstar of our other that's not bias i think most people who understand the limits of common decency heidi would feel something when they heard that said and that's not about bias that's about knowing the difference between right and wrong and feeling a sense of humanity about another person to barbara's point about theater there were so many moments there when you just felt that he was being wronged starting from the getgo when he was asked he was told to answer a question that they knew darn well he could not answer because he had his lawyers standing right behind him and threatening him with contempt walter what did you make of all of this what was your take was i give to look at the larger picture even tie it into trump's trip now because struck said this plays right into the hands of putin this is another notch on his belt because what putin wants is a total disarray of nato a breakup of the european union to have medaled in our elections and donald trump has the ability not only to sort of.

"The russian investigation was launched he was concerned about contacts at the campaign was having what the russians and they wanted to just focus on going back in time hillary clinton's emails and undermining the muller investigation but i pointed out in my questioning one that mr struck was not the only individual to close the clinton investigation there are a lot of people involved in that decision and he was not the only individual to open the trump russia investigation so we were able to corroborate that there was a lot of other evidence out there so even if you didn't like his text messages and i don't that is irrelevant to the mountain of evidence that existed that would warrant any fbi agent to be concerned about donald trump and his contacts with russia and in the agents strucks testimony today were there any things it was anything in that testimony where you or anyone else on the committee learn something that you didn't already know no lawrence you know we we did however learn that the republicans for them this was more about protecting donald trump rather than as i said protecting kids who are separated from their families highschoolers who want us to do something about gun violence farmers who want this company to do something about the tariffs the president is imposing but we learned nothing new from mr struck we just lost precious hours where the american people are counting us to fight for them and we would just seen republicans against seeking to protect the president above anything else and did you hear any line of questioning from republicans that you thought was actually somehow helpful and informative to our understanding of what's been happening here no but lawrence i did hear mr goudy express real interest and having mr struck answer questions about an ongoing investigation and again this is a pattern we've seen throughout the last year which is they want to break the safe of the fbi evidence locker and have evidence come to light so that subjects of the investigation no what is out there but when mr struck refused to answer now he was all of a sudden going to be held in contempt which if if that's the case and we want to know what he has to say that same interest should have been shown mr bannon which is why i moved to have mr bannon subpoenaed and of course that was voted down but interestingly enough mr gowdy did not vote yes or no on that he actually abstained from voting when that was put before and there was a request for clarification of how he was voting because i've never seen this in a roll call vote in a committed before he used the word pass the votes are yes or no there's no other response to the vote and he said pass and so democrats insisted on a clarification and that's when he went silent on the roll call was called again what do you make of that decision of his to to not vote at all on that question that you raised well i think he knows better i wasn't going to give us a vote there but i think he wasn't going to really contradict his position at the house intelligence committee which was that bannon should have been subpoenaed so i think has silence actually spoke volumes that he knew it was wrong to try and pursue contempt proceeding against mr struck but not to do that against mr bannon and so many other trump administration witnesses who refuse to tell us anything and by the way lawrence we have now seen peter struck and james komi come before congress they raised the right hands they went under oath and they told us what they knew about the russian investigation the president continues to criticize them however what distinguishes them from him is that the president is unwilling to raise his right hand for special counsel so it's his move we're going to be joined in discussion now by david frum the senior editor of the atlantic he's the author of trump accuracy corruption of the american republic david fromm you've got nine hours and forty one minutes of hearing testimony to react to take your pick but if you're the lawyer for the corleones family and your clients are super super guilty of course it's your duty to attack the investigators defined some procedural offense and.
