Double Header - Congressmen Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan question Rod Rosenstein No doubt it is time to remove the biased special counsel Mueller

00-00

there are a lot of issues that I would

00-01

like to ask you about mr. Deputy

00-03

Attorney General we had a terrorist

00-04

incident in New York this week we have

00-06

702 reauthorization that is pending in

00-09

Congress gun violence the opioid

00-11

epidemic criminal justice reform but

00-15

when I go home to South Carolina this

00-17

weekend trust me when I tell you no one

00-19

is going to ask me about any of those

00-20

issues they're gonna ask me what in the

00-23

hell is going on with the Department of

00-25

Justice and the FBI the reason we have

00-29

special counsel this is a very important

00-31

point the written you know it the reason

00-33

we have special counsel is because of a

00-35

conflict of interest the regulation

00-38

itself specifically makes reference to a

00-41

conflict of interest and and we don't

00-43

like conflicts of interest because it

00-45

undercuts people's confidence and both

00-48

the process and the result so so let's

00-50

be really clear why we have special

00-53

counsel there was either a real or

00-55

perceived conflict of interest that we

00-58

were fearful would either impact the

01-00

result or people's confidence in the

01-03

process that's why we have something

01-05

called special counsel and that's why we

01-08

have special counsel in this fact

01-10

pattern and then lo and behold those who

01-13

are supposed to make sure there are no

01-16

conflicts of interest seem to have a few

01-18

of their own there's a senior prosecutor

01-22

who said obsequious emails to a fact

01-26

witness I she can be described as

01-30

nothing other than a fact witness she's

01-32

a really important fact witness if you

01-35

pursue the line of inquiry that my

01-38

Democrat friends want to pursue they got

01-40

off of collusion and now their own

01-42

obstruction of justice she may be the

01-44

most important fact witness in an

01-46

obstruction of justice case and the

01-49

senior prosecutor for this conflict of

01-52

interest free special counsel sent a

01-55

fawning obsequious email to a fact

01-58

witness and then we have prosecutors

02-00

assigned to conduct this investigation

02-03

who donated almost exclusively to one

02-06

candidate over another and then we have

02-09

a prosecutor assigned to this calm

02-12

flicked of interest free team that

02-14

attended what was supposed to be what

02-16

he'd hoped to be a victory party for

02-18

Secretary Clinton and we have a senior

02-21

DOJ official mr. Deputy Attorney General

02-23

with an office it used to be two doors

02-25

now from yours meeting with fusion GPS

02-29

and fusion GPS of course was paying for

02-32

rush and dirt on the very person that

02-35

they're supposed to be objectively

02-37

investigating and then that same senior

02-40

DOJ officials wife the one that met with

02-44

fusion GPS his wife was on the payroll

02-47

of fusion GPS and then we have a senior

02-52

agent assigned to investigate secretary

02-55

Clinton's email helped draft the

02-58

exoneration letter well we changed the

03-00

language from grossly negligent to

03-02

extremely careless interviewed Secretary

03-05

Clinton in an interview I've never seen

03-08

and I doubt you have either in your

03-09

career as a prosecutor interviewed

03-12

Michael Flynn was actively involved in

03-14

the investigation into the trunk

03-16

campaign before the Inspector General

03-18

found his text so this agent in the

03-21

middle of almost everything related to

03-25

Secretary Clinton in President Trump

03-27

sent pro Clinton tax anti-trump texts to

03-31

his paramour in response to being told

03-34

maybe he is where he is to protect the

03-38

country from that menace Donald Trump he

03-41

said I can protect our country at many

03-45

levels and then he said Hillary Clinton

03-47

should win 100 million to nothing I

03-50

think about that mr. Deputy Attorney

03-51

General that's a pretty overwhelming

03-53

victory 100 million to zero and when I

03-58

read that last night what I thought was

04-00

this conflict of interest free senior

04-03

agent and the FBI can't think of a

04-05

single solitary American who would vote

04-07

for Donald Trump that's where the zero

04-10

comes in not a single solitary American

04-13

he can imagine would vote for Donald

04-16

Trump this is the conflict of interest

04-18

free special agent aside and then he

04-21

went on if that

04-22

enough to belittle Trump supporters by

04-24

saying he could smell them at a Walmart

04-27

in Virginia this is the person we needed

04-32

to avoid a conflict of interest and then

04-34

he said this they fully deserve to go

04-37

and demonstrate the absolute bigoted

04-39

nonsense of trunk but he wasn't content

04-42

to just disparage Donald Trump he had to

04-45

disparage Donald Trump's family this is

04-49

what he said mr. Deputy Attorney General

04-50

he said the douche bags are about to

04-52

come out he's talking about our First

04-54

Lady and children this conflict of

04-58

interest free special agent of the FBI

05-01

this is who we were told we needed to

05-04

have an objective impartial fair

05-07

conflict of interest free investigation

05-09

so he's openly pulling for the candidate

05-11

he had a role in clearing and he's

05-13

openly investigating a candidate that he

05-16

has bias against and then if that's not

05-18

enough he says Trump is an effing idiot

05-21

what the f just happened to our country

05-24

this is the same man that said he would

05-26

save our country what happens when

05-30

people who are supposed to cure the

05-32

conflict of interests have even greater

05-33

conflicts of interest than those they

05-35

replace well that's not a rhetorical

05-38

question you nor I nor anyone else

05-42

whatever sit Peter struck on a jury we

05-46

wouldn't have him objectively

05-48

dispassionately investigate anything

05-50

knowing what we know now why didn't we

05-54

know what ahead of time and my last

05-56

question my final question to you and I

05-58

appreciate the Chairman's patience how

06-00

would you help me answer that question

06-02

when I go back to South Carolina this

06-04

weekend

06-05

congressman first of all with regard to

06-09

the special counsel mr. struck was

06-12

already working on the investigation

06-13

when the special counsel was appointed

06-15

the appointment I made was to Robert

06-16

Mullins what I recommend that you tell

06-18

your constituents is that Robert Muller

06-21

and rod Rosen Stein and Chris Rea are

06-24

accountable and that we will ensure that

06-27

no bias is

06-28

selected in any of the actions taken by

06-30

the special counsel or in any matter

06-33

within the jurisdiction the Department

06-35

of Justice when we have evidence of any

06-38

inappropriate conduct we're going to

06-39

take action on it and that's what mr.

06-41

Muller did here as soon as he learned

06-43

about this issue he took action and

06-46

that's what I anticipate that the rest

06-48

of our prosecutors are a new group of US

06-50

attorneys our Justice Department and

06-52

poor entities they understand the rules

06-55

and they understand the responsibility

06-56

to defend the integrity of the

06-57

department if they find evidence of

06-59

improper conduct they're going to take

07-01

action so congressman that's the best

07-03

assurance I can give you but actually

07-06

there's one other point which is you

07-07

should tell your constituents that we

07-09

expose this issue because we're ensuring

07-13

that the Inspector General conducts a

07-14

thorough and effective investigation and

07-17

if there is any evidence of impropriety

07-18

he's going to surface it and report

07-20

about it publicly I'll try
