Rep Desantis uses the word “if” to describe what is in the memo because he has to, but he wouldn’t be talking about it at all if it weren’t there, as he knows. Rod Rosenstein will be
Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) addresses the release of the Nunes House Intelligence Committee memo to the American people, saying, “What’s going to happen the public gets the memo is the memo will answer a lot of these vexing questions that we’ve been asking for months.”
He details some of those questions as “the genesis of the dossier, about whether the dossier was used to obtain surveillance, and other questions. But it’s also going to raise new questions that’s going to require more congressional investigation and perhaps the appointment of a special counsel.”
He says, “This is an important event. I think that there will be more accountability within the bowels of the bureaucracy as a result of this, but this is not the end game. This is just one more step in the direction of accountability.”
Lou Dobbs notes that Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Doug Collins (R-GA) expressed reluctance at releasing the memo, telling DeSantis that he is stunned that the priority should be caution rather than the public’s right to know.
He says, “I think there is a measure of delusion about how serious this crisis of credibility is, on the institution of the House of Representatives and certainly the agency of the FBI and the Department of Justice.”
DeSantis is already is very familiar with the contents of the memo, so it’s logical to assume that everything that he addresses as an “if” is in actuality a fact that is included in the memo and which has the Democrats scurrying like disturbed cockroaches.
He points out that the reason there is a mechanism within the House rules which allows them to make classified information public “is precisely for instances like this, where you need accountability, where you’ve had allegations of misconduct by government officials . And not just run-of-the-mill misconduct, I mean the government’s domestic surveillance, that is it’s power at its zenith.
He continues, “And if that was abused, if there was bogus information presented to a FISA court, if the surveillance was re-upped without sufficient reason, that is something that the public has a right to know and that will help Congress institute whatever changes that need to be done as a result of that.”
Asked by Dobbs for his opinion of Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), DeSantis replies, “Devin has been fighting to bring the truth to light for months and months now and I think he deserves an enormous amount of credit. He highlights some of the heads that have rolled due to the efforts of Nunes and other Republicans, noting that the next to hit the plate will likely be that of Rod Rosenstein.
He says the last four or five months have been the first time since he’s been in Congress that they’ve really taken their oversight responsibilities seriously.
