DOJ to reportedly release separate report on James Comey


LOU: WELCOME BACK THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORTEDLY SET TO RELEASE A REPORT ON JAMES COMEY CORRUPT BEHAVIOR AT HIS TIME AS FBI DIRECTOR. BY WRITTEN YORK COULD BE RELEASED TOMORROW. THEY’RE LOOKING INTO CLASSIFIED MEMORANDUM DETAILING PRIVATE CONVERSATION HE HAD WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, COMEY LEAKED THOSE TO A FRIEND IN THE MEDIA. JOINING US TONIGHT, VICTORIA, FORMER DEPUTY ASSISTANT FOR THE CRIMINAL DIVISION OF THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. IN GENERAL FORMER U.S. ATTORNEY FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, FOUNDING PARTNER OF THE LAW FIRM. GREAT TO HAVE YOU BOTH WITH US. YOUR REACTION TO THESE REPORTS AND LET ME BE AND LET ME SE AND LET ME SPECIFIC. THIS COULD COME WITHIN 24 HOURS. YOUR THOUGHTS?>>I WANT TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING NUMBER ONE FOR 40 MONTHS. I WANT TO KNOW WHEN YOU GET TIRED OF WINNING. WILL YOU PLEASE TELL US.>>BE PREPARED TO WAIT. [LAUGHTER]>>NOW REGARDING THE COMEY REPORT, IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO ME THAT THERE WAS A DECISION NOT TO PROSECUTE COMEY AND OTHER ID REPORT IS COMING OUT SO I DON’T THINK IT’S ANY BIG DEAL AS FAR AS IS GOING TO COME OUT INTO THE PROS, THEY MAY CRITICIZE HIM BUT THE DECISION IS GOING TO BE MADE AND I HOPE HE IS INCLUDED IN THE FISA ABUSE PART BECAUSE HE SIGHED THE FIRST FISA APPLICATION WITH VERIFICATION ON THE TOP OF IT AND IT WAS NOT VERIFIED AND THAT IS AN ERROR IN TAKING AWAY THE DUE PROCESS OF CARTER PAGE. LOU: TO QUESTIONS, ONE IS WHY WHY THE INSPECTOR GENERAL CARRIED A SEPARATE REPORT ON THE FIRED FBI DIRECTOR, AND WITH A SUGGESTION THAT THERE WOULD BE NO PROSECUTION, COULD THIS POSSIBLY BE A REVERSAL OF WHAT APPEARED TO BE AN EARLIER DECISION?>>NO, I THINK THEY WANTED TO MAKE THE PROSECUTION DECISION FIRST, THEY HAD THE HOROWITZ REPORT AND HE DID NOT WANT TO PUBLISH THAT IF THEY WERE GOING TO PROSECUTE. THEY MIGHT’VE HELD IT UP IF THEY WERE GOING TO CHURCH AND. ONCE HE DECIDED NOT TO CHARGE HE WILL NOW RELEASE HIS REPORT. I UNDERSTAND THE REASONS BECAUSE OF THE CLASSIFICATIONS THAT I AGREE WITH VICTORIA. THE MOTHER LOAD IS NOT THE REPORT, I’M SURE THERE WILL BE AWFUL BEHAVIOR BY HIM AND HIS LAWYER AND THIS OTHER STUFF. TO BE WHAT MATTERS IS THE FISA APP LOCATION PROCESS. I’M SURE THAT’S WHAT MOST PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT BECAUSE REMOVER, THAT IS THAT THE GENESIS OF ALL THE ILLEGAL ACTIVITY. WHAT THEY DID TO TRY TO GET THE PRESIDENT THROUGH CARTER PAGE. LOU: LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT, FOR FISA WARRANT APPLIED FOR IN THE INSPECTOR GENERAL HAS INDICATED THAT ALL FOUR WERE ILLEGAL. HOW COULD HE NOT HOLD RESPONSIBLE EVERY SIGNATORY ON EVERY ONE OF THE WARRANT APPLICATIONS?>>A DEVICE WHY PEOPLE ARE NOT BEING INDICTED FOR THIS FALSE STATEMENT. LIKE LYING TO AN ID WHICH IS CHILD’S PLAY, MICHAEL FLYNN MADE A FALSE STATEMENT ABOUT HIS CONVERSATION WITH THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADORS THAT ALREADY HAVE THE COMPLETE CONVERSATION. BUT THIS WAS GOING AFTER, TAKING THE U.S. GOVERNMENT INTELLIGENCE WEAPON AND DIRECTING IT AT A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN AND THE OPPOSING PARTY. HOW COULD THIS NOT BE SOME KIND OF CRIMINAL OFFENSE.>>IT IS ABSOLUTELY INCONCEIVABLE THAT WHEN YOU HAVE FOUR WARRANTS OF THIS MAGNITUDE INVOLVING A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN AND THEY WERE ALL FALSELY OBTAINED, IT IS INCONCEIVABLE THAT YOU CANNOT PROSECUTE THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT. IF THAT IS THE DECISION THAT IS MADE, NOT TO PROSECUTE, THERE BETTER BE A DAMN GOOD EXPLANATION. LOU: I WAS JUST UNDERLYING THE! ‘S AFTER EVERY WORD YOU SAID. IT IS THE MARK OF IT IS THE AARK OF IT IS THE AMEK OF IT IS THE AMERIOF IT IS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I CAN IMAGINE TOLERATING NOW. DANA, THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS STILL IN A JOB AT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, THE FBI WHO WAS A SIGNATORY ON ALL OF THIS. STILL HAS A JOB AND STILL SEEMS TO BE PART OF THE APPARATUS.>>VERSUS STILL THERE.>>THAT’S RIGHT. HOW CAN THIS BE?>>TALK ABOUT ROB ROSENSTEIN, HE SAID I REALLY DID NOT MEAN THE APPLICATION. I HAVE BEEN AT THAT DEPARTMENT, I HAVE SEEN DOCUMENTS IS BIG. IF I’M GETTING A DOCUMENT DESPITE AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT WHICH IS WHAT IT WAS AT THE TIME ROD ROSENSTEIN SIGNED IT, I’M READING EVERY WORD AT LEAST ONCE. AND HE SAID I WAS BRIEFED ON IT, TALK ABOUT ARROGANCE. LOU: ARROGANCE AND BY THE WAY, NO SHYNESS ABOUT ANDREW MCCABE IN THAT RESPECT. AN INDICATION IS HE IS GOING TO BE CHARGED, THAT DOES NOT SEEM CONSONANT WITH THE WAIVER WITH EVERYONE ELSE WHO SIGNED THE DOCUMENT.>>HERE IS THE PROBLEM. THE ISSUE IS, WILL WE HAVE ONE STANDARD OF JUSTICE OR TWO. THIS IS A PRETTY SIMPLE CONCEPT, THE TWO STANDARDS OF JUSTICE SEEM TO BE WINNING CLEARLY IN AMERICA. THE DECISIONS THAT ARE GOING TO BE MADE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS OVER WHO GETS PROSECUTED AND DOES NOT WILL BE A BELLWETHER OF HOW WE ARE DOING ON THAT SIDE OF THINGS. I HAVE TO TELL YOU, THE FISA WARRANT PROCESS WAS CREATED BECAUSE THE SUBJECT MATTER WAS SO IMPORTANT, THEY DID NOT LIKE WHAT RICHARD NIXON DID SO THEY CREATED A WHOLE LEGAL PROCESS WITH THE COURTS. IT HAS BEEN THE BELLWETHER OF THE WAY WE CONDUCT SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICAN CITIZENS AND OTHERS. THIS IS AN SPYING MATTERS. IF YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH WHAT COMEY AND MCCABE AND BE AS RELAXED AS ROSENSTEIN WAS IN NOT READING THE ACTUAL AFFIDAVIT, THEN THE PROCESS SHOULD BE PUT TO A HALT. IT SHOULD STOP, THEY SHOULD NOT USE IT ANYMORE AND THEY OUGHT TO GO BACK TO HAVING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS ABOUT WHO GETS SPIED ON.>>BY THE OSOS AND EXPLANATION OF WHAT THEY DID ABOUT ALL THIS.>>WHAT DID THE FISA COURT DO WHEN IT FOUND ALL THIS OUT.>>AND WENT TO THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT.>>THAT WAS MY NEXT LINE.
