Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, says that Congress needs to cut off funding of the DOJ and FBI until they start to cooperate and provide documents that they’re hiding
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton joined Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Saturday program for a discussion of the corruption at DOJ and the FBI and the associated cover ups.
Judge Jeanine starts off with a question about the incriminating texts between subversive conspirators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and the cocoon of protection being afforded them by their equally culpable agencies.
She says, “What I want to know right now is if we’ve only gotten 375 of 10,000 texts, whether we can expect even more context of these actions by the FBI and DOJ.” Fitton replies, “Yes, but they’re not going to put out the material willingly.
I mean we’ve been fighting with them about these texts, they’ve been ignoring our request about the denial, the removal of Strzok from the Mueller investigations, so we just had to sue last week for the records.”
“We know how whistleblowers are treated by the FBI and the Justice Department,” says Fitton, “if they think they did something wrong. In this case we know what happens when they are protected. These two, Peter Strzok is being protected, Lisa Page is being protected, Andrew McCabe is being protected. And Andrew Weissmann, who is the number two at Mueller’s operation is being protected. He’s about as partisan as it comes.”
Fitton says, “I don’t understand why Rosenstein is frozen in place, and frankly, the FBI Director, in handling this corruption that’s going on right in front of them. Judge Jeanine, agrees, saying, “Well here’s the bottom line. Rod Rosenstein, Christopher Wray, they need to fire all of those individuals. These guys don’t have a right to a job.”
She continues, “They don’t have a right to collect money that we’re paying for when they’re accused of all of these actions and now, if we had a grand jury, this could be proven in a second. In November the Attorney General talks about, ‘Well, I’m gonna look at this Uranium One and put people from the Justice Department in to decide whether we should look at it.”
She notes that “everything about that is a pay for play,” and how ridiculous the Sessions comment is. She then plays a clip of Senator Ron Johnson claiming that the only power that he and his fellow feckless members of Congress have over the rogue DOJ and FBI is to make their offenses known and hope that they become embarrassed or that the people rise up and demand less corruption.
Judge Jeanine addresses the idiocy of those remarks, saying, “We need someone with a grand jury or the authority of law.” Fitton agrees, noting that the FBI can’t spend a dollar without Congress appropriating it, so for a Senator to say they just have to rely upon public pressure like they’re an average citizen, it’s a bit odd to hear.”
He notes that his organization has been doing the job Congress refuses to do, saying, “We get documents Congress can’t get so I’m quite confident we’ll get something that Congress isn’t even getting.
Fitton challenges President Trump to take the steps “to make sure the American public knows what its Justice Department and FBI have been up to. Because right now the agencies on their own are stonewalling both Judicial Watch and Congress, and the President can intervene and say, ‘Look, you’ve got to release documents according to law here. Stop playing games, stop telling people they have to wait years for documents when you can release them tomorrow. Release the texts.”
