"Time Trey Gowdy was pressing her on her claims of collusion evidence during the MSNBC interview when the woman told lawmakers that she actually didn't know anything quote unquote why don't we go back to that sentence and I just asked you about it says the trump folks if they found out how we know what we knew about their staff dealing with the Russians county said well how would you know what the U. S. government knew at that point question mark you didn't work for it did you question mark she responded by saying I didn't I work for the government then how did you know guarantee Astor quote I didn't know anything Trey Gowdy press even further do you have information connecting the trump campaign to the hack of the DNC Gowdy else in the hearing her response no so when you say we knew the reality is you knew nothing correct this woman by the way is now running for the New York seventeenth congressional district as a Democrat just wanna let you know now what is the media say when we said that you and again we now know that plan was set up we know there was no crime we know that the FBI knew there was no crime we know that they that that Peter struck jumped in and and it kept the case open even after it's supposed to be closed roulettes go back through the media well let's let's go back to the media anybody that said that Michael Flynn was set up the MP I set them up and they create a crime they said was a conspiracy theory you don't believe me take a listen this top aides have been routinely ignoring the truth and pushing the phony conspiracy theories the president's it seems to be saying that this was a case of entrapment and that Michael Flynn was essentially pressured into line what is your response and I think that's hogwash you know there are all kinds of conspiracy theories about how he was entrapped in the F. B. I. didn't do anything wrong here so I think that's important because there are a lot of sort of diag conspiracy there is that they all work together and you know the fox news people in the White House fuel the sort of rumors in these around the fax machines the company's conspiracy theories and they sent around Iraq's machines they should just knock it off and realize that they're ridiculous conspiracy theories are going to be knocked down stop stop with the conspiracy theories so I think that loud sound you heard it about twelve thirty eastern was the sound of ten thousand conspiracy theories by the trump defenders exploding the sound you hear is a million conspiracy theories exploding or call the trumpets all over the country their heads were blown up here's another conspiracy theory that has been blown the vets trump talking points and right wing media conspiracies demolished for Michael Flynn he was duped it's so embarrassing watch all your chips to the middle of the table better be damn sure you got a good hand the FBI broke standard protocol in a way that they came in an ambush general flan she knew better wrong there's the media there's a media when all this is coming out saying anybody that believe that Michael Flynn was set up it's a conspiracy theory you're an idiot should never be talked about you guys are lying and now we go back to knowing what they all did here they screwed it they I mean they they screwed everybody here this release or do you have that last part of Trey Gowdy on TV when he was asked about where the any of these people that did this to Michael Flynn be prosecuted listen to Trey Garin this is part of the problem is there's no accountability for these people that do this take a listen no I was talking to a former prosecutor on the way over here but we have to to not only associate accountability with prosecutions I I I don't think I think being a terrible FBI agent in treating people unfairly maybe it ought to be a crime but I don't think it is a crime what's the take away is the next on the F. B..

The Impeachment Inquiry This Week in 2 Major Developments

"Good evening the house impeachment inquiry that has gripped Washington was jolted this week by two major developments essentially to do cross currents that could affect the debate for weeks to come first America's top diplomat in Ukraine ambassador William Taylor gave damaging testimony behind closed doors testifying at the White House did threaten to withdraw military aid and less Ukraine announced probes that would politically benefit president trump the testimony by Taylor an army veteran and respected diplomat undermine president trump's insistence that there was no quid pro quo then late Thursday came reports that Attorney General William Barr has opened a criminal investigation of the F. B. I.'s conduct during the twenty sixteen campaign even as the DOJ inspector general is wrapping up his own investigation of related issues those proceedings have been cheered by the president and by Republicans who see them as a counterweight to the house impeachment probe house democratic chairman Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler released a statement in response quote if the department of justice may be used as a tool for political retribution or help the president with a political narrative for the next election the rule of law will suffer new an air repairable damage joining me tonight card the margin compression on national security reporter for The Washington Post Catherine Lucey White House reporter for the Wall Street journal I'm none of us national correspondent for the PBS newshour in Jonathan swan national political reporter for axioms corn you've been following this impeachment inquiry all week at the capitol but for the DOJ to now be opening a criminal investigation what's the significance of that development I need all the other impeachment news for the timing has to be pleasing the president because it presents a counter narrative for what's been going on you have he he's been investigation which we know right now looking at that the Ukraine connections and you have the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe which Russia Ukraine are not that separable let's say that given the president something to focus on something that he can now double down on as the focus is heating up on impeachment look that Durham has been a criminal prosecutor who's been in in charge of this investigation for a while in a way he is always had because of the role he plays the ability of the panel grand jury or to you you know issue indictments against individuals we don't know that he's actually taken those steps yet so the actual significance of what this means does this actually end up pulling in career investigators from the FBI or elsewhere for some sort of felt form of malfeasance or does this just end up being you know a political give to the president at a time at which he's feeling like people aren't really behind him and he wants his troops to rally around him what's the significance of the Attorney General being involved in this kind of investigation doesn't raise questions about the independence of the DOJ I think president trump has always been pretty clear about the role that he thinks the traditionally independent department of justice should play which is that he should be able to direct the work that they're doing and by extension the work that the Attorney General is doing we know Attorney General Barr is involved in this investigation that's being led by John Durham is the US attorney in Connecticut and so they're obvious questions there about what exactly was the motivation for opening this investigation in the first place but bar message of this very very early on right he said before Congress I do believe spying occurred on the trump campaign I would be willing to explore the origins of the Russian investigation and he's also been part of some of the efforts to protect the president politically is pushed back on the subpoena efforts to try to get at the president's tax returns as well so this fits perfectly in line with that raising it to a criminal probe now ups the ante right it kind of turbochargers and it kicks it up a notch I don't have any other medical as Kerr mentioned gives them all of those powers now we don't know what evidence led to that you can't just in the department of justice they were suddenly going to make this a criminal investigation some piece of evidence had to lead to that we don't know what that we usually don't understand Jonathan there's the DOJ probe led by the Attorney General investigating the origins of the Russia pro and then you have the inspector general also within DOJ doing his own report how did they align if at all we don't know we don't know what the IG reports going to say we don't know when it's going to come out and I think we should be very cautious about saying that this is counter programming in terms of when when learning about this criminal investigation of being elevated a grotesque issue number one we don't know when they made that decision when he said okay it's pasta threshold way I believe is that their crimes could have been committed dharma is a serious prosecutor sincerest guy with a serious reputation he's not seen as a partisan hack he has a storied career now in terms of the white it kind of program will would mean the Adam called in okay better than New York times we used in this sort of way and I bet two of the best justice department reporters so I think it's quite possible this could have been opened we don't know when it was opened could be up and you know weeks ago and it could be as simple as a leak investigation we know there was so much classified information leaked in the early if the Russia investigation Sir this is all just to say there's so much we don't know and people are going to spend this in the ways that they want to do you know they can be hysterical about it but I think that it could it could be as simple as by doing what trump wants to do and and our own following the facts and keeping the family up in mind Catherine let's take a stroll down from the DOJ on Pennsylvania Avenue to the capital and you had ambassador Taylor behind closed doors give this damaging testimony about a quid pro quo arrangement inside the trump administration how is the White House reacting is this something that they see as a major turning point well this is a significant moment in in this process this is the most detailed some of the detail of bay has money we've seen so far was a fifteen page opening statement really laying out the cinematic terms it was give me I think that the loss was beautifully written the the way that the Taylors and takes us into taking the job it reminded me of movies where someone is brought into a different world like saying like Goodfellas or I recently saw hustlers forgive someone to take it into a totally different world and they sent me Sir to realize what's going on and we're trying to figure it out and he comes to realize there's two different farm policies going on and and and then of this beat into his explanation of what he understands to be happening with the president's engagement on Ukraine the White House is continuing with a messaging that is a lot focus on process they are attacking of the the process on the hill they are and they are also trying to discredit all the witnesses so you heard the present today criticizing Taylor you know and we'll see if that sticks this is a decades long your career diplomats in came forward and who is hired by this by this administration and you're standing outside notebook in hand of the skiff the secure area inside of the house well all these people testified but a **** Taylor in particular we heard there is a reporter take me inside the room what were you hearing from members about how it went and why it matters and investors tellers testimony has had the most impact of any of the people have come and thus far in this impeachment pro and it's because of the details of his testimony it's also because he names names and connects dots in other ways that people have not he even when he was in the room he was in touch with the people who were in the room and he lays out a narrative exactly how the Giuliani campaign led to strategist at the group on the crane policy start to diverge from the more traditional roots how when you had the secretaries of state and defense and CIA and the national security adviser all saying week we should be sending that aid there you then had the Maldini camping like maybe not and he actually has a timeline also of when the freeze on the funding came when to him it seemed like there was a quid pro quo going on here when he was told specifically by people in the administration that yes the money is being leveraged in order to secure a promise from Ukrainian president to conduct investigations into the energy company that Joe Biden's son was on the board of and this twenty sixteen to hack this conspiracy theory around the DNC server that was hacked in twenty sixteen the theory says that it's somehow ended up in Ukraine and if it were found it would prove the Ukraine interfere in the twenty sixteen election is not Russia that's been widely debunked already the fact that there was so powerful though his is is I think the reason why you saw at a direction of political action the next day let's talk about that right that political Russian because you you're there covering it and you see the testimony itself it is a game changer for the house Democrats as they build their case against the president but his current setting house Republicans decided to take matters into their own hands trump loyalists forced their way into a secure in a room view room on Capitol Hill blocking witness testimony for hours we're going to go in there today and demand we get our rights remembers of Congress what what what what was it like when they actually stop the testimony from happening well I mean a delay the testimony for about five and a half five five and half hours from starting that was the day that Deputy Assistant secretary of defense lawyer Cooper who eventually talked about kind of the nuts and bolts of how the Ukraine military aid works on there are a lot of interesting parts of this it was certainly a display that we we we watched as as they stormed into that room there's nothing that actually prevents those lawmakers from walking into the skiff this gift is not like a locked box members of Congress have enough security clearance to go in also about a dozen of the people who were storming into that skip already had the right to be there because they are members of these three panels and just finally I should make the point that you know a lot of the argument that that has been about processes captain was referring to the Republicans are a part of this process they have the right to ask questions in these interviews they are getting equal time they don't like the fact that this is happening but they're not being iced out the way that claimed that they were it's also worth pointing out that entire spectacle took place the day after president trump is calling on Republicans to take off the gloves and show up and fight for him he wants to know that members of his own party are actually showing up in on his side of this fight and this was one the one way they could display that it's also worth pointing out the obvious hypocrisy because a few years ago when Republican Trey Gowdy was leading closed door investigative sessions into the U. S. attack that the attacks on U. S. facilities in Benghazi he argued they should be closed door for a reason those reasons are that if there's national security interest I play and also it gives witnesses a chance to be open and honest about their testimony was pause for a second talk about the house Republicans and Republicans in general making process the issue Jonathan is that because they don't feel like they're able to engage on the substance of the testimony they rather make it about the process there are some house Republicans I think of a small group that would be quite happy to fight on the substance but a small group and where there is no that that types to fight on the substances in the Senate noun so the backstory to this resolution that Lindsey Graham you know I'm sold you say that was actually very tame it was really just what was it was a process occupant it was a very soberly rescind tame argument against the process no substantive defense of Donald Trump the backstories that was Lindsey Graham wanted to write a letter to pelo see that was actually fairly bombastic and yet this is a sham at citrus address he pitched the lead out to the Republicans that they launched last week and the response was not good and the reason I did want to do it even people who support trump two reasons number one you write a letter like that anyone who doesn't sign on you've created an enemies list for trump's immediately number two you don't get many signatures it's very embarrassing he looks weak so what ends up happening Instagram shifts to a resolution he writes this resolution it's still a little too hot Mitch McConnell cools it down and you get this very milquetoast document that everyone can agree on but it's a very clear sign of what's going on in the Senate why this matters is Republican senators to not want to defend Donald Trump on the substance and the most they're willing to go is this sort of finicky process argument to say that you know they should change the way

"Miss the justice system i like jobs were facts matter i like jobs where fairness matters like jobs frankly were the process matters and it's not just about winning and it's not just about reaching result there's a proper way to do things their confessions thrown out because police in all the right protocol their search warrants thrown out so i am more at peace and jobs at reward fairness and that are fact centric than i am in congress that's voice a trait goudy our special guest here on the takeout episode sixty two but i'm the only one that keeps track of that number you don't need to do that at home wait a minute congressman i started covering congress in nineteen ninety plenty members who have i tapped him on the shoulder in nineteen ninety nineteen ninety one and said we'll do you think this is a place where facts matter and processed matters and fairness matters they all from both parties would have said yes not always not universally but more often than not that's no longer true not in my experience in my experience winning the only thing that matters and you do and say what you need to do is it is it is textbook relativism and and i don't like it and i don't want to be part of it and i think it's unhealthy for the country i i like rules that apply with equal vigor no matter who's in power and if something's a good idea to investigate when the democrats are in the white house is a good idea to investigate when the republicans are in the white house and i just the job will prosecutor is not to get a conviction it is to be a minister of justice and and i i like jobs that reward persuasion and so often in our country for the most part people have already made up their minds and they don't trust people who are in elective office in my party if i were to ask you who of five to ten most influential voices in my party i don't think other than.

"So on the topic of potential conflict what would you believe would be the after affect if the president were to fire robert moen i don't think he's going to adult think he can those are two separate but important will get into both yeah i mean he can't some of the people think that do have access to him i've actually never met him never had a conversation with him but folks like newt gingrich and others that are you know their conservative credentials are unassailable they have advised him let molar do his job if you're going to be cleared by someone you want to be clear by someone who's not seen as your friend and look we spent fourteen months looking for evidence of collusion between president trump or his campaign and the russians and admittedly we didn't have access to every witness because some of them are under indictment but the one we had access to even the former obama administration fficials noone alleged collusion so with that is the allegation and you have not done it then you want a neutral detach person to make that call and not a friend right and on the question of whether he could not whether he will but could he there's been an argument that some have presented the president the special counsel is not the independent counsel independent council was created by congress it is a law signed by president and it has legislative standing they have argued the present hey special counsels merely an extension of the executive branch you run the executive branch therefore with or without cause as the leader of the executive branch you can fire the special counsel where do you come down on that theory of law whether is no independent counsel anymore all we statue was allowed to lapse and it was dubious constitutional import even exist they're they're good they're good arguments on both sides i actually don't think the president i do think he's the head of the executive branch and i think has pardon powers our plenary we give a lot of power to the head of the executive branch but in order to fire special counsel you've gotta get the person who hired him which is rod rosen image person trump didn't hire bob mueller rod rosenstein republican well i hate to assign to prosecutors but he's viewed as a republican and was praised.

"Social media is that we allow out a declared opponent of the best interest the united states russia to weaponize our own partisanship against ourselves because they saw that we were willing to do something we were never willing to do during the cold war which is believed the worst about each other and that made their job something they've tried to do for many many years much easier do you agree i do not think is manifest and things other than that i never thought i would ever hear elected officials praised julian assange a never thought i would ever hear elected officials say thank god for wikileaks i never thought i would see any american applaud the dissemination of the proceeds of crime i you know one of the reasons i'm getting out of this line of work is i just don't like relativism i don't i think something is wrong whether it hurts or benefits your sock and the dish unity concerns me as an american i'm getting out of politics so not as an elected official but as an american i'm not here to plug this but tim scott not actually written a book on the need for unity how can you have contrast without it the coming conflict and what we have now is conflict and it is manifest on television almost every night where you can vote with your clicker and an i you know a false a little bit axe maybe followed us more than a little bit most members of congress get along really really well off camera but for whatever reason we don't ever show that on camera and and the contrast has unfortunately devolved into conflict and it's twenty four hours.

"Why is that important because in muller that statement put out by rod rosenstein gave us bob muller he specifically reference what qomi said said we're doing this to confirm what jim qomi said and obama the way if they colluded with others we want to know that too so from my standpoint defined daesh it'll inquiry is what did russia do with respect to the twin sixteen election process and if there's criminality of course we expecting to find it but the notion that he was hired to only go look for criminality i think does a disservice to him so i think the president is unduly obsessed with that part of this i think his lawyers have done a disservice to him frankly one in what way killer i think allowing it to be framed as an investigation into collusion collusion only conflicting the andy mackay firing conflicting frankly the dossier this investigation would exist without a dossier and i've said that for the last twelve months with or without dossier this goes on the dossier has nothing to do george papadopoulos it has nothing to do with the meeting at trump tower it has nothing to do with cambridge analytical carter page or coroner will the dossier well don't have anything to do with quarter page but it is related to the fifa application for page no quarter page was an actor well before the dossier so look i actually liked the department of justice like the fbi i don't enjoy it when they're criticized i think the the investigatory approach they took with substandard with respective vetting the dossier but you haven't investigation separate and apart from that and i just wish mall republicans would acknowledge that.

"Fair description of that fair descript of the current political environment yes sir yeah because you is there a part of it that makes you feel as if you cannot win or you cannot get across what you're trying to accomplish in have that fairly judged in a partisan environment the result yes the process i i do value fairness this is not a market where it is valued allowed by others but the fact that both sides criticize you usually some indication that you've kinda hit the proper middle i think process matters i think the way you do things matters you put your finger on it there were folks on the right who were only interested in her and the folks on the left which i don't know that i'll ever fully understand if you if you actually look at what we did it wasn't that partisan and it wasn't that venomous we only had what to public hearings out of one hundred but what's narrative gets imprinted in people's minds is awfully hard to dispel it and the narrative was that it was going to be she excessively partisan right so let's take it up to modern times we have an investigation going on robert mueller the special council president trump over the weekend this past weekend did something he hadn't done before specifically calling out the special counsel by name he had obviously in a generic way been highly critical the investigation but this time he got a little bit more personal what's your reaction to that marie action is to go back to the jurisdictional document that bob muller the special counsel and keep him on major he didn't he didn't volunteer he is where he is because the president nominated and had confirmed an attorney general who felt like he had a conflict of interest and then rod rosenstein felt like that apartment had a conflict of interest that's the only way to get the special counsel if you go back the very diverse morning that jim komi publicly announces investigation he said it is a look into what russia did with respect to our twenty sixteen election and then three cents is later he mentions potential criminality.
