Robert Mueller, an unelected bureaucrat contracted to take out President Trump, is now running the DOJ, says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch. Sessions has abdicated and deep state
Lou Dobbs opens his interview with Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch with an excerpt of the back and forth between the Justice Department and House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes.
Dobbs notes that Nunes’ office responded to the “Justice Department’s expression of concern about the release of the committee’s four-page memo detailing FISA surveillance abuses.”
He quotes a Nunes spokesman as saying, “Agencies that are under investigation by congressional committees don’t typically get access to the committee’s investigative documents about them, and it’s no surprise these agencies don’t want the abuses we’ve found to be made public.”
In welcoming Fitton to the program, Dobbs points out that Judicial Watch is now suing the DOJ to gain copies of the Strzok-Page text messages. He also commends Rep Devin Nunes as “a hero in this episode, he is now doing so with great wit. I thought that response was absolutely perfect.”
Fitton agrees and notes that the DOJ “is acting as if Hillary Clinton is President, as opposed to President Trump.” He says, “Jeff Sessions has put himself in a box with the Russia recusal and it seems special counsel Mueller is running the investigation.”
He continues, “And all of this fight about the dossier, all of this back and forth about the FBI text messages and the modified, limited handout of text messages, it’s about protecting Mueller’s operation. And I think there’s a race.” [[VIDEO BELOW]]
Fitton believes, “There’s a race for Mueller to interview Trump if he can, prior to his operation being blown apart by the release of this dossier memo by the House or more text messages that will further expose the whole investigation into Trump and, frankly, Hillary Clinton, which is related, as a partisan sham.”
Fitton says he never bought the story about the “missing” text messages and notes that they were miraculously discovered a few hours after Judicial Watch sued for them and that they’ve seen this obstructionism before with the IRS and the FBI relating to Hillary Clinton.
Regarding lack of transparency and the obstructionism at the State Department and DOJ, Fitton says, “The deep state is in full control over there [DOJ], thanks to the leadership just checking out on these transparency issues and refusing to be brave on these transparency issues,” that they’ve invariably had to sue to get documents that should simply have been handed over to them. He reminds us this is out of the new administration, not the Obama administration.
Dobbs asks the question we’ve all been asking, “Why would not President Trump order these people, these servants of the American public, to act in his interest and release that to the American people, because it is our right to know?”
Fitton says flatly, “I think he’s receiving legal advice not to get involved. I don’t know how else to explain it because I think he does want this information released, he’s been complaining about it separately through tweets and things like that. But it’s one thing to complain about it via tweet, and get your lawyers and get the Justice Department to do what you want them to do.”
He says, “I think he’s been put in a box as a result of this illicit criminal investigation into him, that he can’t talk about declassifying the dossier documents or the FISA warrants or the unmasking documents.” Dobbs puts forth the idea that Trump doesn’t have to talk about it. He could just order Sessions and Tillerson to cooperate in the spirit of the right of the American people to transparency in their government.
Fitton has made that suggestion directly to the White House with no results, noting that “the Justice Department has ceded all of its authority on these issues to Robert Mueller, they cite his investigation to withhold information from us, and it’s become King Mueller at the Justice Department. And he’s just another lawyer, working on a contract basis for the bureaucracy, but he’s being treated as a king.”
