Asked for his reaction to the firing of coup ringleader Andrew McCabe, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte tells Maria Bartiromo, “Well, I think the Attorney General did the right thing, it was the appropriate decision given the reports of his having leaked internal information to the media” and then lying to FBI investigators about it. He says, “The steps are appropriate.” [[WATCH VIDEO BELOW]]
She lists some of the many violations of FBI protocol and the law which were a basis for the firing. Bartiromo points to the lengthy amount of time that Goodlatte and his committee have been investigating DOJ improprieties and the lack of cooperation that continues under Jeff Sessions.
She says, “We know that there are 1.2 million pages of texts. How many of those texts, of those documents have you seen?” Goodlatte corrects her that there are other documents aside from just text messages in that 1.2 million, saying that she is correct that they have seen “a tiny percentage of that,” characterizing their production of documents as “very slow.” He warns it’s “coming to a head.”
Goodlatte says that while the production is better under Sessions than Loretta Lynch, they need the documents and they need them unredacted. He notes that the recent text of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page discussing their plans to conspire with Judge Contreras of the FISA court were originally redacted. Bartiromo points out that there was no national security reason for the redaction, that it was strictly in the furtherance of a cover up.
Bartiromo asks Goodlatte if he intends to subpoena the documents if the stonewalling continues. He replies in the affirmative, saying, “Well the answer is yes and as I say, the whole matter is coming to a head. He indicates that there have been communications with the DOJ conveying exactly that and action will need to be taken soon on their part to prevent the issuance of subpoenas.
Bartiromo reads an angry and threatening tweet from former CIA Director John Brennan, asking if he was involved in the corruption under Obama. Goodlatte replies diplomatically, “Well, we don’t know that but his statement clearly is overwrought.”
He once again states the case for a second special counsel and voices his approval for the comments by AG Sessions indicating he would consider appointing one although they have not yet gotten a response to a letter sent by 13 House members making that request. He also notes that four US Senators, including Judiciary Committee Chairman Grassley, have also requested a second special counsel be appointed.
Bartiromo asks if Goodlatte knows how high up the ladder the corruption goes, if, for example, Obama was directing Lynch in telling Comey to call the Clinton sham investigation a matter? He says they don’t know yet but offers for consideration the fact that Clinton was sending classified emails to somebody in an unprotected manner. Whether inside the government or outside, each has its own set of problems.
Goodlatte notes that as the investigation progresses more names of persons who were aware of the illegalities will likely become known. He must suspect that that is the case, otherwise the stonewalling and withholding of evidence wouldn’t be so intense. If there was top level involvement in the Clinton cover up it’s only reasonable to expect the same players to behave in a similar manner when attempting to eliminate the threat of Donald Trump.
Bartiromo closes saying, “I find it really extraordinary that Andrew McCabe took all of these notes when he met with President Trump but there are no notes about Hillary Clinton. I don’t even think that the interview that the FBI did was on the record.”
Goodlatte jumps in, adding, “That last point you just made about bias is an absolutely critical issue, the difference between how these two investigations were conducted is shocking.”
