Attorney General Barr reviewing DOJ draft report on FISA abuse


MIKE.>>Mike: TRACE GALLAGHER, MANY THANKS. THEY’RE PRESSURING THE DOJ TO DROP THE CASE BUT DON’T KNOCK AGAINST HIM. BUT THERE REVIEWING THE DOJ WATCHDOG REPORT ON ALLEGED ABUSES. LET’S BRING A NATIONAL SECURITY ATTORNEY, BRAD MOSS AND JOHN YOO, GENTLEMEN, IT’S GREAT TO HAVE YOU. ALREADY, THE CHAIRMAN LINDSEY GRAHAM IS TALKING ABOUT NEXT UPS.>>THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE CALL MR. HORWITZ AND HE WILL TESTIFY UNDER OATH ABOUT HIS REPORT. WE’RE GOING TO PURSUE THIS IN A TRANSPARENT FASHION. WE’RE GOING TO DECLASSIFY AS MUCH AS WE CAN INCLUDING THE APPLICATIONS.>>Mike: JOHN, WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS. SPEAK UP WHERE’S SEEING ACCOUNTABILITY COME HOME THIS IS NOT THE END, THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END. NOT ONLY ARE YOU GOING TO SEE THIS REPORT COME OUT AND WERE FINALLY GOING TO SEE THE TRUTH. ABOUT HOW THE SURPRISE WARRANTS GET APPROVED, WHAT INFORMATION DID THEY FBI GET TO THE COURT, DID IT REALLY RELY ON STEELE DOSSIER OR NOT? WE ARE ALSO GOING TO SEE INVESTIGATIONS BY THE UNIVERSITY OF THE ATTORNEY OF CONNECTICUT, AND ALSO CHOOSING TO DECLASSIFY ALL OF THIS INFORMATION AND MAKE IT AVAILABLE NOT JUST A CONGRESS BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I THINK IT’S FINALLY WERE GOING TO SEE, IT WAS NEVER ANY COLLUSION BETWEEN THE RUSSIANS AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. IF WE WENT ON A YEAR AND A HALF TO YEAR WASTE OF TIME AND WE ARE FINALLY GOING TO FIND OUT IF THI FINALLY GOING TO FIND OUT IF THS WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE BY THE FBI OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING MORE NEFARIOUS AT WORK.>>Mike: AND FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR DEFENDED McCABE AND HIS ACTIONS.>>THIS IS AN EXTREMELY UNUSUAL PROSECUTION. ANTI- McCABE HAD THE RIGHT TO SPEAK TO REPORTERS. THAT IS BEYOND DISPUTE HE HAD THE RIGHT TO SPEAK TO REPORTERS. HE HAD SOME ONE OF THE MOST IMPECCABLE RECORDS OF HIS GENERATION OF FBI AGENTS.>>Mike: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? THE WEAKNESS AT THE HEART OF THE GOVERNMENT CASE THEY DO CHOOSE TO BRING THIS OFF STATEMENT DEMONSTRATING HIS INTENT TO REASON, THE RATIONALE, HOPEFULLY PROVIDING FALSE INVESTIGATIVE INVESTIGATORS, THEY HAD AUTHORIZED THAT LEAK TO THE MEDIA, IT’S NOT PART OF A DEEP STATE TRUTH. IT WAS A LEAK THAT HELPS THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN IT HURT HILLARY CLINTON. HOW THEY WERE ABLE TO ILLUSTRATE THAT, THERE WAS ALWAYS A WEAKNESS, THAT’S PROBABLY WHY THE GRAND JURY IF THE MEDIA ARE RIGHT BY THE JURY’S BALKING AT THE MOMENT IF THEY CAN’T CONVINCE THE GRAND JURY, THERE’S NO WAY THEY WOULD CONVINCE A ACTUAL JURY AT TRIAL OF HIS GUILT.>>Mike: I FEAR SOME VIEWERS EYES GLAZE OVER WHEN THEY HEAR THE NAMES, WHY DOES THIS MATTER SO MUCH?>>IF A JURY MAY NOT CONVICT, I THINK IT’S UTTERLY IMPORTANT FOR JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO BRING CHARGES BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE McCABE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, IT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SEND AN EXAMPLE FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. IF THEY’RE LYING TO FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS, HOW DO THEY EXPECT AVERAGE CITIZENS TO INTERACT WITH THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT, PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WERE CHARGED FOR THINGS, THINK ABOUT ALL THESE FIGURES YOU JUST MENTIONED, MIKE, THEY WERE ALL CONVICTED OR PLAYED OUT TO FALSE STATEMENTS UNDER OATH TOO. WHETHER IT SIGNIFICANT OR LESS SIGNIFICANT THAN WHAT MR. McCABE DID, TO MAKE SURE THAT JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS CLEARING OUT EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER THE LAW, CHARGING THE OWNER OFFICIALS TO SHOW THAT THERE EVENHANDED.>>Mike: THEY SHOW THE PLEAD GUILTY. THAT WAS THEIR CHOICE ANDREW MCCABE IS SAYING, I’M NOT GUILTY OF 1,001 CHARGE.
