"During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety." —Thomas Jefferson (1805)

Double Header - Congressmen Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan question Rod Rosenstein

No doubt it is time to remove the biased special counsel Mueller

Gowdy and Jordan question Rosenstein

00-00

there are a lot of issues that I would

00-01

like to ask you about mr. Deputy

00-03

Attorney General we had a terrorist

00-04

incident in New York this week we have

00-06

702 reauthorization that is pending in

00-09

Congress gun violence the opioid

00-11

epidemic criminal justice reform but

00-15

when I go home to South Carolina this

00-17

weekend trust me when I tell you no one

00-19

is going to ask me about any of those

00-20

issues they're gonna ask me what in the

00-23

hell is going on with the Department of

00-25

Justice and the FBI the reason we have

00-29

special counsel this is a very important

00-31

point the written you know it the reason

00-33

we have special counsel is because of a

00-35

conflict of interest the regulation

00-38

itself specifically makes reference to a

00-41

conflict of interest and and we don't

00-43

like conflicts of interest because it

00-45

undercuts people's confidence and both

00-48

the process and the result so so let's

00-50

be really clear why we have special

00-53

counsel there was either a real or

00-55

perceived conflict of interest that we

00-58

were fearful would either impact the

01-00

result or people's confidence in the

01-03

process that's why we have something

01-05

called special counsel and that's why we

01-08

have special counsel in this fact

01-10

pattern and then lo and behold those who

01-13

are supposed to make sure there are no

01-16

conflicts of interest seem to have a few

01-18

of their own there's a senior prosecutor

01-22

who said obsequious emails to a fact

01-26

witness I she can be described as

01-30

nothing other than a fact witness she's

01-32

a really important fact witness if you

01-35

pursue the line of inquiry that my

01-38

Democrat friends want to pursue they got

01-40

off of collusion and now their own

01-42

obstruction of justice she may be the

01-44

most important fact witness in an

01-46

obstruction of justice case and the

01-49

senior prosecutor for this conflict of

01-52

interest free special counsel sent a

01-55

fawning obsequious email to a fact

01-58

witness and then we have prosecutors

02-00

assigned to conduct this investigation

02-03

who donated almost exclusively to one

02-06

candidate over another and then we have

02-09

a prosecutor assigned to this calm

02-12

flicked of interest free team that

02-14

attended what was supposed to be what

02-16

he'd hoped to be a victory party for

02-18

Secretary Clinton and we have a senior

02-21

DOJ official mr. Deputy Attorney General

02-23

with an office it used to be two doors

02-25

now from yours meeting with fusion GPS

02-29

and fusion GPS of course was paying for

02-32

rush and dirt on the very person that

02-35

they're supposed to be objectively

02-37

investigating and then that same senior

02-40

DOJ officials wife the one that met with

02-44

fusion GPS his wife was on the payroll

02-47

of fusion GPS and then we have a senior

02-52

agent assigned to investigate secretary

02-55

Clinton's email helped draft the

02-58

exoneration letter well we changed the

03-00

language from grossly negligent to

03-02

extremely careless interviewed Secretary

03-05

Clinton in an interview I've never seen

03-08

and I doubt you have either in your

03-09

career as a prosecutor interviewed

03-12

Michael Flynn was actively involved in

03-14

the investigation into the trunk

03-16

campaign before the Inspector General

03-18

found his text so this agent in the

03-21

middle of almost everything related to

03-25

Secretary Clinton in President Trump

03-27

sent pro Clinton tax anti-trump texts to

03-31

his paramour in response to being told

03-34

maybe he is where he is to protect the

03-38

country from that menace Donald Trump he

03-41

said I can protect our country at many

03-45

levels and then he said Hillary Clinton

03-47

should win 100 million to nothing I

03-50

think about that mr. Deputy Attorney

03-51

General that's a pretty overwhelming

03-53

victory 100 million to zero and when I

03-58

read that last night what I thought was

04-00

this conflict of interest free senior

04-03

agent and the FBI can't think of a

04-05

single solitary American who would vote

04-07

for Donald Trump that's where the zero

04-10

comes in not a single solitary American

04-13

he can imagine would vote for Donald

04-16

Trump this is the conflict of interest

04-18

free special agent aside and then he

04-21

went on if that

04-22

enough to belittle Trump supporters by

04-24

saying he could smell them at a Walmart

04-27

in Virginia this is the person we needed

04-32

to avoid a conflict of interest and then

04-34

he said this they fully deserve to go

04-37

and demonstrate the absolute bigoted

04-39

nonsense of trunk but he wasn't content

04-42

to just disparage Donald Trump he had to

04-45

disparage Donald Trump's family this is

04-49

what he said mr. Deputy Attorney General

04-50

he said the douche bags are about to

04-52

come out he's talking about our First

04-54

Lady and children this conflict of

04-58

interest free special agent of the FBI

05-01

this is who we were told we needed to

05-04

have an objective impartial fair

05-07

conflict of interest free investigation

05-09

so he's openly pulling for the candidate

05-11

he had a role in clearing and he's

05-13

openly investigating a candidate that he

05-16

has bias against and then if that's not

05-18

enough he says Trump is an effing idiot

05-21

what the f just happened to our country

05-24

this is the same man that said he would

05-26

save our country what happens when

05-30

people who are supposed to cure the

05-32

conflict of interests have even greater

05-33

conflicts of interest than those they

05-35

replace well that's not a rhetorical

05-38

question you nor I nor anyone else

05-42

whatever sit Peter struck on a jury we

05-46

wouldn't have him objectively

05-48

dispassionately investigate anything

05-50

knowing what we know now why didn't we

05-54

know what ahead of time and my last

05-56

question my final question to you and I

05-58

appreciate the Chairman's patience how

06-00

would you help me answer that question

06-02

when I go back to South Carolina this

06-04

weekend

06-05

congressman first of all with regard to

06-09

the special counsel mr. struck was

06-12

already working on the investigation

06-13

when the special counsel was appointed

06-15

the appointment I made was to Robert

06-16

Mullins what I recommend that you tell

06-18

your constituents is that Robert Muller

06-21

and rod Rosen Stein and Chris Rea are

06-24

accountable and that we will ensure that

06-27

no bias is

06-28

selected in any of the actions taken by

06-30

the special counsel or in any matter

06-33

within the jurisdiction the Department

06-35

of Justice when we have evidence of any

06-38

inappropriate conduct we're going to

06-39

take action on it and that's what mr.

06-41

Muller did here as soon as he learned

06-43

about this issue he took action and

06-46

that's what I anticipate that the rest

06-48

of our prosecutors are a new group of US

06-50

attorneys our Justice Department and

06-52

poor entities they understand the rules

06-55

and they understand the responsibility

06-56

to defend the integrity of the

06-57

department if they find evidence of

06-59

improper conduct they're going to take

07-01

action so congressman that's the best

07-03

assurance I can give you but actually

07-06

there's one other point which is you

07-07

should tell your constituents that we

07-09

expose this issue because we're ensuring

07-13

that the Inspector General conducts a

07-14

thorough and effective investigation and

07-17

if there is any evidence of impropriety

07-18

he's going to surface it and report

07-20

about it publicly I'll try
