For the entire transcript of this interview, please continue reading.

0:00:00.030,0:00:06.839
okay Brad Johnson this is Friday

0:00:04.799,0:00:09.050
what’s it August the 30th I think man

0:00:06.839,0:00:13.110
this summer that’s crack flying by and

0:00:09.050,0:00:15.240
you know that they’re the United States

0:00:13.110,0:00:16.680
and the West in general is seems to be

0:00:15.240,0:00:19.800
on a precipice and we’re heading into

0:00:16.680,0:00:22.519
some very very bad things I think loss

0:00:19.800,0:00:24.960
of freedom for sure in so many ways and

0:00:22.519,0:00:26.640
these events are happening so fast and

0:00:24.960,0:00:28.439
they’re so important I know you’ve got

0:00:26.640,0:00:29.640
some events to discuss with us why don’t

0:00:28.439,0:00:33.329
you just go right ahead

0:00:29.640,0:00:36.090
sure what’s the big news of the day the

0:00:33.329,0:00:39.120
news cycle over the last 24 hours has

0:00:36.090,0:00:41.969
been the IG report that was brought out

0:00:39.120,0:00:44.610
on on James Comey former FBI director

0:00:41.969,0:00:47.270
James Comey and a handling of documents

0:00:44.610,0:00:50.129
it was a an IG report that was very

0:00:47.270,0:00:53.460
narrowly defined and only looked at one

0:00:50.129,0:00:55.199
very specific area and that was the the

0:00:53.460,0:00:58.800
way that documents were handled by James

0:00:55.199,0:01:00.539
coming up to go back to kind of your one

0:00:58.800,0:01:02.730
of your opening comments there about how

0:01:00.539,0:01:04.949
we’re headed into dangerous times I mean

0:01:02.730,0:01:08.250
that is absolutely so true and having

0:01:04.949,0:01:09.900
with my background I am fortunate and

0:01:08.250,0:01:12.150
through work and different things have

0:01:09.900,0:01:15.360
seen most of the rest of the world and

0:01:12.150,0:01:16.950
been on every continent and everything

0:01:15.360,0:01:19.110
in a lot of islands in different places

0:01:16.950,0:01:22.409
so I’ve I’ve seen most of what the rest

0:01:19.110,0:01:25.470
of the world is and when you get to the

0:01:22.409,0:01:28.670
point where you cannot trust the Justice

0:01:25.470,0:01:30.420
ISM system everything breaks down and

0:01:28.670,0:01:32.970
that’s something that’s just so

0:01:30.420,0:01:35.189
fundamentally important because if it

0:01:32.970,0:01:37.920
favors a certain group of people then

0:01:35.189,0:01:39.869
it’s on a clear course of deterioration

0:01:37.920,0:01:42.329
and eventually you’re going to get to

0:01:39.869,0:01:44.280
the point where like for example in

0:01:42.329,0:01:45.990
Mexico in Colombia and a lot of other

0:01:44.280,0:01:47.850
countries are like that but I mentioned

0:01:45.990,0:01:49.520
those two because people tend to be

0:01:47.850,0:01:51.869
familiar with them because of the drugs

0:01:49.520,0:01:54.810
you basically get to the point where you

0:01:51.869,0:01:57.090
there is no way to do business without

0:01:54.810,0:02:02.030
belonging to some mafia organized

0:01:57.090,0:02:05.310
criminal type group in that country and

0:02:02.030,0:02:07.590
it’s you can’t even you can’t trust the

0:02:05.310,0:02:10.470
judges you can’t trust the police and to

0:02:07.590,0:02:12.840
do a contract is only worth what you can

0:02:10.470,0:02:13.680
enforce on it and and basically to do

0:02:12.840,0:02:15.569
business you have

0:02:13.680,0:02:17.159
to be willing to enforce those contracts

0:02:15.569,0:02:18.540
and the only way to enforce a contract

0:02:17.159,0:02:20.849
because you can’t do it through the

0:02:18.540,0:02:23.400
court system is to kill them so only a

0:02:20.849,0:02:25.349
certain type of person will go into that

0:02:23.400,0:02:26.819
business where you know to get the

0:02:25.349,0:02:28.290
contract to work you have to go kill

0:02:26.819,0:02:30.599
somebody if they don’t come through and

0:02:28.290,0:02:32.790
that that’s reputation is what makes

0:02:30.599,0:02:35.239
everybody then kind of toe the line when

0:02:32.790,0:02:37.739
they make an agreement with you so that

0:02:35.239,0:02:39.599
society breaks down when you get to that

0:02:37.739,0:02:43.109
sort of thing and it stalls and doesn’t

0:02:39.599,0:02:45.569
move ahead so I you know that’s

0:02:43.109,0:02:48.599
something I personally being so familiar

0:02:45.569,0:02:51.659
with how this will play out if it’s

0:02:48.599,0:02:53.579
allowed to continue just terrifies me so

0:02:51.659,0:02:56.129
now back to the James Comey thing James

0:02:53.579,0:02:59.760
coming as I said it was a very narrowly

0:02:56.129,0:03:02.459
defined investigation by the Attorney

0:02:59.760,0:03:04.019
General at the FBI Attorney General and

0:03:02.459,0:03:05.849
what they did is they looked at the way

0:03:04.019,0:03:09.299
at James coming particularly handled

0:03:05.849,0:03:11.639
these memos and the day after he was

0:03:09.299,0:03:14.280
fired the and some people from the FBI

0:03:11.639,0:03:17.219
went to his house and we were collecting

0:03:14.280,0:03:19.280
up all of the FBI owned things material

0:03:17.219,0:03:21.870
communications devices everything and

0:03:19.280,0:03:23.849
we’re taking it all away and and of

0:03:21.870,0:03:25.620
course asked him and he’s required by

0:03:23.849,0:03:28.199
regulation to turn over everything to

0:03:25.620,0:03:29.459
them which he did not for example some

0:03:28.199,0:03:33.180
of the memos that he had and his

0:03:29.459,0:03:35.479
personal safe all of these things the IG

0:03:33.180,0:03:37.290
clearly decided that these were

0:03:35.479,0:03:38.760
government property and should have

0:03:37.290,0:03:40.319
rightfully been turned over and coming

0:03:38.760,0:03:41.970
knew all of this I mean there’s just

0:03:40.319,0:03:44.970
there’s no secrets here I don’t want to

0:03:41.970,0:03:48.150
belabor the point of what the IG report

0:03:44.970,0:03:50.329
went through because it’s been pretty

0:03:48.150,0:03:53.430
heavily covered by a lot of people but

0:03:50.329,0:03:55.439
suffice it to say that as far as the

0:03:53.430,0:03:58.560
regulations are concerned the internal

0:03:55.439,0:04:00.090
regulations of the FBI Comey just broke

0:03:58.560,0:04:03.659
rule after rule after rule after rule

0:04:00.090,0:04:07.019
after rule now Kony did all of this I

0:04:03.659,0:04:08.970
think he was clearly expecting Hillary

0:04:07.019,0:04:11.009
Clinton to win the presidency and so he

0:04:08.970,0:04:14.310
was you know even though that there was

0:04:11.009,0:04:16.019
some animosity towards him because of

0:04:14.310,0:04:17.849
that report he did about Hillary Clinton

0:04:16.019,0:04:19.650
and the classified documents but he

0:04:17.849,0:04:21.930
actually was doing her a favor because

0:04:19.650,0:04:23.909
if she’d been elected president and that

0:04:21.930,0:04:26.039
had been covered up and came up later

0:04:23.909,0:04:27.389
that everyone would have said the

0:04:26.039,0:04:29.400
election was illegitimate

0:04:27.389,0:04:31.650
because he covered up illegal behavior

0:04:29.400,0:04:33.720
on her part so he had to bring it out

0:04:31.650,0:04:35.550
before the election he had to there was

0:04:33.720,0:04:37.710
no way for Hillary Clinton to be

0:04:35.550,0:04:39.270
legitimately elected unless he brought

0:04:37.710,0:04:40.830
that out put it on the table now

0:04:39.270,0:04:42.780
what he did is he listed all of the

0:04:40.830,0:04:44.639
things she did wrong which are the same

0:04:42.780,0:04:46.590
laws that he’s been looked at under by

0:04:44.639,0:04:48.539
the IG a lot of the mistakes that she

0:04:46.590,0:04:51.659
made were the mistakes that he made

0:04:48.539,0:04:54.090
although hers was on a much larger scale

0:04:51.659,0:04:57.240
and far more egregious and it’s the

0:04:54.090,0:04:58.860
similar type of behavior her certainly

0:04:57.240,0:05:03.150
meets the threshold of criminal and

0:04:58.860,0:05:05.009
here’s the key his does not now I know a

0:05:03.150,0:05:07.020
lot of people in the blogosphere I’ve

0:05:05.009,0:05:09.770
been reading what’s been said about this

0:05:07.020,0:05:12.539
a lot of people are very upset out there

0:05:09.770,0:05:14.159
and that I that I’ve seen making

0:05:12.539,0:05:16.199
comments and the breakdown of justice

0:05:14.159,0:05:18.150
and so on and and I mean I’m with you on

0:05:16.199,0:05:21.870
this I it is something that frightens me

0:05:18.150,0:05:24.779
very badly but this by itself is not

0:05:21.870,0:05:26.729
that important because it was just such

0:05:24.779,0:05:29.009
a narrow look at how he handled these

0:05:26.729,0:05:30.659
memos and the problem with that is it’s

0:05:29.009,0:05:32.669
not like Hillary Clinton who had

0:05:30.659,0:05:35.370
classified documents from all sorts of

0:05:32.669,0:05:37.860
agencies including NSA and CIA and State

0:05:35.370,0:05:40.740
Department that she then manipulated to

0:05:37.860,0:05:42.599
send out these are memos that James

0:05:40.740,0:05:44.750
Comey wrote now he knew perfectly well

0:05:42.599,0:05:47.370
they were classified because you know as

0:05:44.750,0:05:48.960
director of the FBI you have a meeting

0:05:47.370,0:05:51.029
with the president United States you

0:05:48.960,0:05:53.219
come home and write it all up

0:05:51.029,0:05:55.919
that’s a classified document because

0:05:53.219,0:05:57.690
it’s on government business you are have

0:05:55.919,0:06:00.210
access to that meeting because you’re

0:05:57.690,0:06:01.979
the director of the FBI not because

0:06:00.210,0:06:03.360
you’re just a super intellect that the

0:06:01.979,0:06:05.250
president wants to talk to you because

0:06:03.360,0:06:06.839
of all these marvelous ideas you have

0:06:05.250,0:06:10.050
which I don’t think anyone has ever

0:06:06.839,0:06:12.960
accused coming of that so it’s it’s as

0:06:10.050,0:06:14.490
as director of the FBI they access

0:06:12.960,0:06:15.990
whatever you have to of these meetings

0:06:14.490,0:06:17.639
and the things that the proceedings that

0:06:15.990,0:06:20.129
go on belong to the government not to

0:06:17.639,0:06:22.289
you go Comey knows all of this perfectly

0:06:20.129,0:06:23.819
I mean it isn’t anything that even

0:06:22.289,0:06:26.219
junior people coming in have any

0:06:23.819,0:06:27.659
confusion over so understand that you

0:06:26.219,0:06:29.430
know he’s really kind of speaking out of

0:06:27.659,0:06:31.110
the side of his mouth when he says oh

0:06:29.430,0:06:32.159
I’m vindicated all of this because he

0:06:31.110,0:06:34.229
knows damn well he’s guilty of

0:06:32.159,0:06:36.120
everything he knows exactly what he did

0:06:34.229,0:06:38.849
wrong and he did it on purpose for his

0:06:36.120,0:06:40.680
own political reasons now for me that’s

0:06:38.849,0:06:43.050
it’s kind of the what’s

0:06:40.680,0:06:44.490
important out of all of this is it’s not

0:06:43.050,0:06:47.669
the fact that he broke all these

0:06:44.490,0:06:50.400
regulations because the problem on that

0:06:47.669,0:06:52.620
is it’s hard to take those things to the

0:06:50.400,0:06:54.509
level of criminality because of the

0:06:52.620,0:06:56.400
origin of the documents they were like I

0:06:54.509,0:06:59.400
said they weren’t there were memos that

0:06:56.400,0:07:02.400
he wrote not classified documents from

0:06:59.400,0:07:04.470
someplace else so it’s difficult to turn

0:07:02.400,0:07:07.139
the corner to make that a criminal case

0:07:04.470,0:07:09.630
it would be hard to prove and so that’s

0:07:07.139,0:07:11.310
why the IG took a look at all this stuff

0:07:09.630,0:07:15.000
and you know I’ve dealt with classified

0:07:11.310,0:07:17.039
documents for decades and that’s it’s

0:07:15.000,0:07:20.009
it’s just one of those things that’s

0:07:17.039,0:07:22.139
that the IG I think properly concluded

0:07:20.009,0:07:23.880
what they did now the report itself is

0:07:22.139,0:07:26.099
scathing pointing out as a lot of people

0:07:23.880,0:07:28.830
said pointing out all the things that

0:07:26.099,0:07:31.650
James Comey did wrong but in a case if

0:07:28.830,0:07:33.330
if you work at the FBI or CIA or NSA or

0:07:31.650,0:07:34.789
State Department or anybody anywhere

0:07:33.330,0:07:38.430
else in the federal government and you

0:07:34.789,0:07:40.590
break a lot of policy that that’s not

0:07:38.430,0:07:41.610
criminal you don’t go to jail for that

0:07:40.590,0:07:43.590
they don’t turn you over to the

0:07:41.610,0:07:45.449
prosecutor to try and put you in jail

0:07:43.590,0:07:46.919
that’s I’m just going to zip that

0:07:45.449,0:07:50.400
there’s a big difference between a

0:07:46.919,0:07:53.250
procedural error and a series of moves

0:07:50.400,0:07:56.849
which appear to be calculated to

0:07:53.250,0:07:58.740
undermine a federal election that’s true

0:07:56.849,0:08:00.960
but this this wasn’t looking

0:07:58.740,0:08:03.360
now you’re going beyond the scope of

0:08:00.960,0:08:04.770
what this IG inspection looked at the IG

0:08:03.360,0:08:06.449
inspection was only looking at the

0:08:04.770,0:08:09.720
handling of these documents that’s all

0:08:06.449,0:08:11.940
so speculation as to what he did and why

0:08:09.720,0:08:14.610
he did it as to part of a bigger effort

0:08:11.940,0:08:16.110
to overthrow a duly elected president

0:08:14.610,0:08:17.789
United States States that’s completely

0:08:16.110,0:08:20.159
separate that’s not what they were

0:08:17.789,0:08:21.630
looking at here so the point I wanted to

0:08:20.159,0:08:23.310
make about it is if you break all the

0:08:21.630,0:08:25.889
rules and regulations of wherever you

0:08:23.310,0:08:28.229
work whether you know it’s you know fast

0:08:25.889,0:08:31.289
food restaurant or an accounting office

0:08:28.229,0:08:32.820
or you know the FBI it doesn’t matter

0:08:31.289,0:08:35.969
you’re faced with the same thing and

0:08:32.820,0:08:38.039
that’s your internally punished one way

0:08:35.969,0:08:39.899
or another now the worst basically the

0:08:38.039,0:08:41.849
worst punishment you can get by breaking

0:08:39.899,0:08:44.910
the rules of your workplace is to be

0:08:41.849,0:08:46.860
fired well coming was already fired what

0:08:44.910,0:08:49.350
this does is just simply lays out the

0:08:46.860,0:08:51.120
case of why he was so properly fired now

0:08:49.350,0:08:52.910
it was always within the president’s

0:08:51.120,0:08:54.560
purview to fire him it

0:08:52.910,0:08:56.870
possibly be obstruction of justice

0:08:54.560,0:08:58.550
because the president can fire him for

0:08:56.870,0:09:01.160
whatever reason he wants without

0:08:58.550,0:09:01.640
explanation because it’s his right to do

0:09:01.160,0:09:03.620
so

0:09:01.640,0:09:06.350
that’s part of being president of the

0:09:03.620,0:09:07.640
United States so and it wasn’t president

0:09:06.350,0:09:09.380
Trump that made the call that was

0:09:07.640,0:09:10.850
internal and I think they were looking

0:09:09.380,0:09:13.880
at some of these sorts of things and

0:09:10.850,0:09:17.420
said you know time to go so he got fired

0:09:13.880,0:09:19.040
as a result so you know what what can

0:09:17.420,0:09:21.220
you do beyond that you’ve already fired

0:09:19.040,0:09:24.440
the guy so what do you do now he’s

0:09:21.220,0:09:26.270
humiliated he’s on all the TV shows

0:09:24.440,0:09:28.700
where whoever will talk to him saying

0:09:26.270,0:09:30.610
he’s vindicated but you know he looks

0:09:28.700,0:09:33.380
like a horse’s rear end I mean I think

0:09:30.610,0:09:37.310
reputational money properly so he’s

0:09:33.380,0:09:41.150
essentially destroyed now but because of

0:09:37.310,0:09:43.790
the you know a couple more points about

0:09:41.150,0:09:45.320
before I move on one thing Comey the

0:09:43.790,0:09:46.850
list for this the big loser because

0:09:45.320,0:09:49.040
reputationally he’s just absolutely

0:09:46.850,0:09:51.350
destroyed even the Washington Post who’s

0:09:49.040,0:09:53.090
clearly a left-wing newspaper and would

0:09:51.350,0:09:55.970
normally support these types of guys has

0:09:53.090,0:09:59.660
just slam dunked him so you know he’s

0:09:55.970,0:10:01.490
basically destroyed the big winner out

0:09:59.660,0:10:02.990
of this is Trump you know because he’s

0:10:01.490,0:10:05.060
vindicated and if what he’s been saying

0:10:02.990,0:10:07.820
and why he fired the guy and soap Trump

0:10:05.060,0:10:12.500
comes out of it once again he’s proven

0:10:07.820,0:10:15.380
right the odd man out of all of this is

0:10:12.500,0:10:17.180
current FBI director Christopher ray you

0:10:15.380,0:10:19.700
know and we’re having a huge silence out

0:10:17.180,0:10:22.100
of him where the hell is he and

0:10:19.700,0:10:24.290
Christopher ray is the guy in all of

0:10:22.100,0:10:27.080
this that really worries me now because

0:10:24.290,0:10:29.120
he’s doing almost nothing all of the

0:10:27.080,0:10:31.400
word is here that he’s fighting all

0:10:29.120,0:10:33.680
these investigations because he wants to

0:10:31.400,0:10:36.110
protect the reputation of the FBI but I

0:10:33.680,0:10:37.760
gotta say you know directory if you’re

0:10:36.110,0:10:40.070
listening dude you’re way past that

0:10:37.760,0:10:42.500
stage you know now it’s you have to

0:10:40.070,0:10:44.840
clean house you have to fix the problems

0:10:42.500,0:10:46.460
clean house and by trying to cover all

0:10:44.840,0:10:47.780
this stuff up you’re making the problem

0:10:46.460,0:10:50.060
worse and worse and worse and where it’s

0:10:47.780,0:10:51.530
not better better better better so you

0:10:50.060,0:10:53.570
know get your head out of your reader

0:10:51.530,0:10:55.280
and get this thing fixed and this

0:10:53.570,0:10:57.770
silence on the part of director ray

0:10:55.280,0:11:00.080
right now I think is a very strong

0:10:57.770,0:11:02.590
indicator of where his head is at if I

0:11:00.080,0:11:05.240
can repeat the play on words there he

0:11:02.590,0:11:06.560
he’s just he just doesn’t you know what

0:11:05.240,0:11:08.629
he should be doing is he should

0:11:06.560,0:11:10.189
the guy stepping up saying all right you

0:11:08.629,0:11:11.509
know these problems took place we’re

0:11:10.189,0:11:13.819
gonna make sure that they never take

0:11:11.509,0:11:15.620
place again Comey clearly was a screw-up

0:11:13.819,0:11:17.209
where you know we’re we’re increasing

0:11:15.620,0:11:18.920
this part of the red or decreasing that

0:11:17.209,0:11:21.050
or doing training or whatever it is that

0:11:18.920,0:11:22.970
you have to do to fix that so that this

0:11:21.050,0:11:24.709
this problem doesn’t repeat that’s where

0:11:22.970,0:11:25.879
Christopher Rea needs to be and he’s

0:11:24.709,0:11:28.249
completely silent

0:11:25.879,0:11:30.829
so again I’m very worried about him I

0:11:28.249,0:11:33.019
don’t think he was the proper man for

0:11:30.829,0:11:35.990
the job I think that President Trump

0:11:33.019,0:11:38.329
needs to be seriously looking at him for

0:11:35.990,0:11:39.829
his long term viability I’m not saying

0:11:38.329,0:11:41.959
he should necessarily be fired right

0:11:39.829,0:11:44.809
away but I think that should be on the

0:11:41.959,0:11:46.220
table at this point if I I would expect

0:11:44.809,0:11:48.829
somebody from the White House to go sit

0:11:46.220,0:11:50.689
down at his desk and just say look you

0:11:48.829,0:11:53.389
know get going straight on this stuff

0:11:50.689,0:11:57.199
start fixing it or you know we’ll invite

0:11:53.389,0:11:59.089
you to succeed elsewhere so he for me is

0:11:57.199,0:12:02.439
the big question mark now here and the

0:11:59.089,0:12:05.540
guy that is really not doing his job so

0:12:02.439,0:12:07.850
now going forward the real question is

0:12:05.540,0:12:10.420
here is is going to be with the FISA

0:12:07.850,0:12:13.309
investigation for the FISA warrant now I

0:12:10.420,0:12:15.379
mean we’ve talked about this case many

0:12:13.309,0:12:17.750
many many times I’ve never once

0:12:15.379,0:12:19.970
suggested nor do I don’t really recall

0:12:17.750,0:12:21.889
anyone else suggesting that James Comey

0:12:19.970,0:12:24.350
was going to go to jail for his handling

0:12:21.889,0:12:25.730
of these memos I I certainly never

0:12:24.350,0:12:28.009
suggested it and would have always

0:12:25.730,0:12:30.319
thought well yeah tough case we’ll see

0:12:28.009,0:12:32.089
what you know in hindsight it’s easy to

0:12:30.319,0:12:33.649
say but I just that’s not the type of

0:12:32.089,0:12:35.870
thing you really put people away in jail

0:12:33.649,0:12:38.059
for if so easily because it’s like I

0:12:35.870,0:12:39.470
said it’s not like you took a thousand

0:12:38.059,0:12:41.809
classified documents home like Hillary

0:12:39.470,0:12:44.689
did it’s just these memos he was writing

0:12:41.809,0:12:46.699
so it’s a more murky thing clearly

0:12:44.689,0:12:49.160
against policy but is it against the law

0:12:46.699,0:12:51.980
and I and tough to prove so but going

0:12:49.160,0:12:54.559
forward now outside of this very narrow

0:12:51.980,0:12:57.110
scope of those documents still looming

0:12:54.559,0:13:00.050
still part of the investigation going on

0:12:57.110,0:13:04.040
that John Durham is doing US Attorney

0:13:00.050,0:13:06.199
Durham is is also including the Feist

0:13:04.040,0:13:11.559
investigation now that fights a warrant

0:13:06.199,0:13:14.839
that was obtained to surveil the Trump

0:13:11.559,0:13:16.309
campaign before he was elected and was

0:13:14.839,0:13:18.620
all the original plus it was three

0:13:16.309,0:13:20.460
renewals those were signed by James

0:13:18.620,0:13:21.810
coming I I don’t remember

0:13:20.460,0:13:23.610
now if you signed them all I think he’s

0:13:21.810,0:13:25.590
saying the original and and I’m not sure

0:13:23.610,0:13:29.100
how many of the three renewals that he

0:13:25.590,0:13:29.730
signed but those are real trouble for

0:13:29.100,0:13:31.500
coming

0:13:29.730,0:13:33.680
I think Comey knows that and I think

0:13:31.500,0:13:37.320
part of the reason he is so out there

0:13:33.680,0:13:39.200
now on this I G investigation and and

0:13:37.320,0:13:41.970
and if you look closely at what he said

0:13:39.200,0:13:43.590
James Comey said look all these guys

0:13:41.970,0:13:46.170
have been lying to you about me all this

0:13:43.590,0:13:47.580
time I’m fully vindicated you see I told

0:13:46.170,0:13:50.490
you they’re all just making it up

0:13:47.580,0:13:52.920
against me no it’s them you know they’re

0:13:50.490,0:13:55.020
the problem not me that’s essentially

0:13:52.920,0:13:58.140
what call me saying right now well why I

0:13:55.020,0:14:01.590
mean you know in in in he would have had

0:13:58.140,0:14:03.840
he had access to the IG report and the

0:14:01.590,0:14:05.520
points of the IG report before it was

0:14:03.840,0:14:07.590
published because that’s part of the

0:14:05.520,0:14:09.570
procedure you’re that’s the subject of

0:14:07.590,0:14:12.090
the investigation by the IG you’re

0:14:09.570,0:14:15.260
you’re told the points so that you have

0:14:12.090,0:14:17.580
the ability to respond to those issues

0:14:15.260,0:14:18.270
so he would have seen all this he knew

0:14:17.580,0:14:20.310
what was coming

0:14:18.270,0:14:24.450
he knew his scathing report he knew is

0:14:20.310,0:14:25.950
very damaging to him so I like I said I

0:14:24.450,0:14:27.900
don’t suggest the coma he’s a grand

0:14:25.950,0:14:30.450
intellect but you know he’s not a

0:14:27.900,0:14:32.040
complete idiot either so knowing what

0:14:30.450,0:14:34.230
was coming out knowing how damaging it

0:14:32.040,0:14:36.240
was to his reputation he goes out anyway

0:14:34.230,0:14:37.980
and says oh see I’m vindicated it’s them

0:14:36.240,0:14:40.770
making it up you can’t believe anything

0:14:37.980,0:14:43.110
they tell you well I think what that is

0:14:40.770,0:14:44.940
is pre positioning himself for defense

0:14:43.110,0:14:46.320
for the next round that’s to come up and

0:14:44.940,0:14:49.560
also I think the IgE

0:14:46.320,0:14:51.360
the attorney general’s office didn’t

0:14:49.560,0:14:54.000
want to waste the time on such a hard

0:14:51.360,0:14:56.120
case that’s minor like this the amount

0:14:54.000,0:14:58.290
of trouble he would get in it over the

0:14:56.120,0:15:03.510
handling of the documents was relatively

0:14:58.290,0:15:07.580
minor and so but this FISA warrant thing

0:15:03.510,0:15:11.240
now that is a big deal probably fraud

0:15:07.580,0:15:13.290
probably perjury involved in that I

0:15:11.240,0:15:15.480
would sort of guys depending how it

0:15:13.290,0:15:17.220
plays out but those those two things are

0:15:15.480,0:15:20.730
there because he was going to a judge

0:15:17.220,0:15:22.620
and testifying to the accuracy swearing

0:15:20.730,0:15:25.020
to the accuracy of the information

0:15:22.620,0:15:27.600
contained and those documents submitted

0:15:25.020,0:15:30.210
to the judge well he knew that was all a

0:15:27.600,0:15:31.920
lie and did it anyway and all of those

0:15:30.210,0:15:33.630
people that signed those documents so I

0:15:31.920,0:15:35.310
think for

0:15:33.630,0:15:38.730
people that are really upset over this I

0:15:35.310,0:15:42.140
would say bide your time my trip line on

0:15:38.730,0:15:45.120
this is the FISA warrant if something so

0:15:42.140,0:15:48.390
latent as the way that they lied and

0:15:45.120,0:15:51.390
manipulated this the steel dossier in

0:15:48.390,0:15:53.160
order to get a warrant against the Trump

0:15:51.390,0:15:56.310
campaign and spy on the Trump campaign

0:15:53.160,0:16:00.320
if something so blatant is that that

0:15:56.310,0:16:03.240
clearly if not surpasses approaches

0:16:00.320,0:16:05.190
treason if all of that is allowed to

0:16:03.240,0:16:07.290
walk then you know ladies and gentlemen

0:16:05.190,0:16:09.750
boys and girls we’ve got very serious

0:16:07.290,0:16:12.960
problems here in the United States and I

0:16:09.750,0:16:15.540
I just don’t think Attorney General bar

0:16:12.960,0:16:17.310
is so corrupt that he would try to cover

0:16:15.540,0:16:19.650
those sorts of things up I just don’t I

0:16:17.310,0:16:21.900
just don’t see that so but that’s my

0:16:19.650,0:16:23.940
tripwire that’s my red line if you will

0:16:21.900,0:16:27.080
that’s where I look at it and say okay

0:16:23.940,0:16:30.690
if that’s allowed to go forward

0:16:27.080,0:16:32.400
unchallenged then then we’ve got very

0:16:30.690,0:16:33.750
serious problems and something you know

0:16:32.400,0:16:35.940
more serious steps would need to be

0:16:33.750,0:16:37.410
taken here and I don’t think Trump would

0:16:35.940,0:16:39.120
allow that to go forward that way either

0:16:37.410,0:16:42.870
because he was the target of all of this

0:16:39.120,0:16:44.040
so I think we’re all right you know I

0:16:42.870,0:16:45.270
guess that would be the best way to

0:16:44.040,0:16:47.250
describe it I think we’re all right I

0:16:45.270,0:16:49.950
think the big stuff is still coming I

0:16:47.250,0:16:52.020
think fairly soon we’re gonna see this

0:16:49.950,0:16:55.980
come out on the on the FISA thing and

0:16:52.020,0:16:58.470
how can you possibly not indict and take

0:16:55.980,0:17:04.079
to trial these guys for what they did on

0:16:58.470,0:17:05.160
on that Faisal warrant request so like I

0:17:04.079,0:17:07.410
said I think we’re all right I think

0:17:05.160,0:17:09.449
that’s where commis well Comey is

0:17:07.410,0:17:11.160
looking he knows that’s the real problem

0:17:09.449,0:17:12.569
that he’s facing and that’s why he’s

0:17:11.160,0:17:14.250
just come out and said oh they’re lying

0:17:12.569,0:17:16.680
about me they’ve all lied about me time

0:17:14.250,0:17:18.689
to apologize to James Comey and all of

0:17:16.680,0:17:20.910
that because it it pre positions him for

0:17:18.689,0:17:23.550
his defense because what defense does he

0:17:20.910,0:17:25.620
have once that fights the thing hit you

0:17:23.550,0:17:26.640
look at all the documents say well

0:17:25.620,0:17:30.240
clearly you were lying

0:17:26.640,0:17:32.910
and yet you testified attested to the

0:17:30.240,0:17:37.620
truth of this information to a judge so

0:17:32.910,0:17:40.080
why and you know he can’t discuss it

0:17:37.620,0:17:43.380
he can’t there’s no defense within that

0:17:40.080,0:17:45.150
for him because he knew it was false

0:17:43.380,0:17:47.160
when he did it because it was political

0:17:45.150,0:17:49.170
if it’s political

0:17:47.160,0:17:53.130
then you are getting into the realm of

0:17:49.170,0:17:55.220
treason so he can’t go down that road at

0:17:53.130,0:17:57.420
all and he’s gonna have to sell a frame

0:17:55.220,0:17:59.310
job you’re making it look worse than it

0:17:57.420,0:18:01.080
is and I got that information from John

0:17:59.310,0:18:02.790
Brennan and you know he told me mr.

0:18:01.080,0:18:04.590
Krown document so I had to do it and

0:18:02.790,0:18:06.810
that’s when that’s when you’re gonna see

0:18:04.590,0:18:08.130
this whole thing in my opinion I think

0:18:06.810,0:18:11.250
that’s when you’re gonna see this whole

0:18:08.130,0:18:13.530
thing breakdown and chaos from their

0:18:11.250,0:18:16.830
perspective the Jim clapper Oh Jim come

0:18:13.530,0:18:19.440
James Comey clapper former DNI Comey

0:18:16.830,0:18:21.600
former director of FBI and John Brennan

0:18:19.440,0:18:23.390
former director of the CIA they’re the

0:18:21.600,0:18:27.600
guys that were cooking all this up now

0:18:23.390,0:18:29.610
whether it goes then on to president

0:18:27.600,0:18:31.110
former President Obama I think is kind

0:18:29.610,0:18:35.430
of the really the million-dollar

0:18:31.110,0:18:39.060
question if those three guys a number of

0:18:35.430,0:18:41.190
levels to this first you know if they

0:18:39.060,0:18:42.780
all kind of break down and are willing

0:18:41.190,0:18:45.090
to just tell everything they know in

0:18:42.780,0:18:46.200
order to either save their lives or save

0:18:45.090,0:18:48.150
them from spending the rest of their

0:18:46.200,0:18:50.640
life in jail which those guys would be

0:18:48.150,0:18:52.320
targets in jail I can’t think life with

0:18:50.640,0:18:55.770
Bubba would be easy for those guys in

0:18:52.320,0:18:58.530
jail it would be federal penitentiary so

0:18:55.770,0:19:00.300
I mean not you know your local checkout

0:18:58.530,0:19:04.230
during the morning and check back in in

0:19:00.300,0:19:06.840
the evening sorts of places so if if in

0:19:04.230,0:19:11.250
fact Obama was aware which seems at

0:19:06.840,0:19:12.630
least at this point very likely that I

0:19:11.250,0:19:15.570
don’t know that that would rise to the

0:19:12.630,0:19:18.330
level of being able to try to prosecute

0:19:15.570,0:19:20.910
a former president United States if on

0:19:18.330,0:19:22.710
the other hand he knew was aware of it

0:19:20.910,0:19:26.160
from the beginning and gave the orders

0:19:22.710,0:19:27.270
to them to proceed that’s different so

0:19:26.160,0:19:29.520
it would be very interesting I think

0:19:27.270,0:19:31.020
that’s what’s kind of the I have a real

0:19:29.520,0:19:33.360
question of that as to how that will

0:19:31.020,0:19:35.580
play out into the future if all three of

0:19:33.360,0:19:38.280
those guys clapper coming and Brennan

0:19:35.580,0:19:40.590
are in real trouble would they flip

0:19:38.280,0:19:41.970
would they then testify against the

0:19:40.590,0:19:46.560
former president United States and

0:19:41.970,0:19:48.810
whoever else might be involved so I that

0:19:46.560,0:19:50.640
remains to be to play itself out it’s

0:19:48.810,0:19:54.540
really getting to be kind of

0:19:50.640,0:19:57.720
hypothetical at this point and myself I

0:19:54.540,0:20:00.970
would be I think everyone involved would

0:19:57.720,0:20:03.010
want a very strong standard of proof

0:20:00.970,0:20:04.510
in order to go after a former president

0:20:03.010,0:20:06.460
United States no matter who it is I

0:20:04.510,0:20:08.890
think it presents a it presents a

0:20:06.460,0:20:10.990
dilemma to the Republicans away what

0:20:08.890,0:20:13.030
whether it great you know if they do

0:20:10.990,0:20:18.120
prosecute him because he meets a certain

0:20:13.030,0:20:21.220
standard of behavior which cannot go on

0:20:18.120,0:20:23.860
record and unpublished unpublished and

0:20:21.220,0:20:26.260
unpunished that presents a challenge to

0:20:23.860,0:20:28.450
the Republic I think and you know if he

0:20:26.260,0:20:31.870
has clearly done things that the average

0:20:28.450,0:20:33.370
person would have been severely punished

0:20:31.870,0:20:35.650
for but you don’t want to take a

0:20:33.370,0:20:37.120
president to task for that I think

0:20:35.650,0:20:38.530
that’s I think I think that Obama is

0:20:37.120,0:20:42.700
going to present a challenge either way

0:20:38.530,0:20:44.830
I agree completely and I’m I’m not sure

0:20:42.700,0:20:46.840
even how I mean I’d I personally would

0:20:44.830,0:20:48.280
want to know if way more before I would

0:20:46.840,0:20:51.430
really kind of make too many judgment

0:20:48.280,0:20:53.590
calls on it I I would really hesitate to

0:20:51.430,0:20:55.390
see like I say a former president the

0:20:53.590,0:20:59.530
United States convicted of treason or

0:20:55.390,0:21:01.000
some related type crime yeah I don’t

0:20:59.530,0:21:04.960
know that’s that’s not a happy time for

0:21:01.000,0:21:06.430
anybody anybody so we’ll see but it’s

0:21:04.960,0:21:08.050
gonna be very interesting as I said kind

0:21:06.430,0:21:09.220
of my parting shot on all of this to

0:21:08.050,0:21:10.840
everyone was you know don’t be

0:21:09.220,0:21:13.510
frustrated by what you saw on this

0:21:10.840,0:21:15.910
extremely narrow IG report on the

0:21:13.510,0:21:18.460
documents those memos that James Comey

0:21:15.910,0:21:20.350
had at home did a lot of broke a lot of

0:21:18.460,0:21:21.850
procedural regulations so sorts of

0:21:20.350,0:21:23.590
things but he was already fired and

0:21:21.850,0:21:26.140
that’s the maximum punishment for that

0:21:23.590,0:21:28.660
sort of stuff he’s being fired so you

0:21:26.140,0:21:30.430
know he kind of had the IG in a tight

0:21:28.660,0:21:32.110
spot in that sense you can you can’t

0:21:30.430,0:21:33.700
fire the guy twice but you could

0:21:32.110,0:21:35.110
certainly justify the fact it helps

0:21:33.700,0:21:40.140
justify the fact that he was fired

0:21:35.110,0:21:40.140
earlier so the question is that FISA

0:21:45.970,0:21:48.030
you
