DeSantis was a one of the first calling for a 2nd special counsel to investigate DOJ, FBI and the FISA court. Now that momentum seems to be building, he warns against a farce…
Lou Dobbs says today was a day of extraordinary developments, noting the partial settlement of litigation between the House Oversight Committee and the DOJ over documents relating to Holder and Obama’s gun-running operation, Fast and Furious and the intensifying calls for a second special counsel.

He asks his guest, Rep Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for his views, as one who has been calling for months for a second special counsel to be appointed. He says he thinks the trigger that caused the calls for another special counsel to increase was the statement by AG Jeff Sessions that he was going to leave the investigation up to the Inspector General.
He says a lot of people in the House who might have been on the fence about the issue realized that the “Inspector General has no prosecutorial authority, he can’t hold anybody accountable. He can’t even subpoena people who are outside the department, so people like Comey and Clapper, he has no access to any of those.”
DeSantis continues, “So I think people have realized that the Justice Department can’t investigate itself when you have potential misconduct from the very highest level, people like James Comey in the FBI and McCabe,” Strzok and Ohr.
He says “So there is a conflict and you need to have somebody with teeth. So I was very happy that Congressmen Gowdy and Goodlatte sent the letter to Sessions.” DeSantis indicates that there are signals from Sessions that he may have already assigned someone with the task, and if that is the case, he wants to know more about who they are and their potential conflicts.
He says choosing a person from outside of Washington is a great step but is it someone who is already a Justice Department employee. “You can do that,” he says, but clearly he wants to avoid an obstructionist who is in bed with the targets.”
DeSantis says the most important thing is whether or not this individual “is going to actually use a grand jury and conduct a legitimate investigation or is this going to be Hillary part two, where they don’t subpoena anybody, where they don’t do search warrants, they don’t even use a grand jury and they do kind of a half-measure investigation. That’s not going to cut it in this case. We need an actual rigorous investigation.”
Dobbs points out the Mueller’s witch hunt has now fully been exposed as an “utter farce,” that the Trump Presidency has been subverted by the special counsel, and the importance of not letting another get as out of control as this one has.
DeSantis concurs, noting again that there was not even a crime identified in the appointing order written by Rod Rosenstein, who he reminds the viewers has full authority to rein Mueller in if he chose to do so and since he has been unwilling to do so, Mueller is basically calling his own shots.
He says nothing that Mueller has done required a special counsel, all of those under scrutiny could have been investigated by regular DOJ personnel. Dobbs follows up with a call for Mueller to fully exonerate President Trump, something that may require much more character than he’s exhibited to this point.
