to degrade that information and this is

412
00:07:23,770 –> 00:07:23,780
to degrade that information and this is

413
00:07:23,780 –> 00:07:25,570
to degrade that information and this is
what we’ve seen happen it’s greatly

414
00:07:25,570 –> 00:07:25,580
what we’ve seen happen it’s greatly

415
00:07:25,580 –> 00:07:27,610
what we’ve seen happen it’s greatly
degraded it’s very political now it’s

416
00:07:27,610 –> 00:07:27,620
degraded it’s very political now it’s

417
00:07:27,620 –> 00:07:29,440
degraded it’s very political now it’s
weaponized it’s used for all sorts of

418
00:07:29,440 –> 00:07:29,450
weaponized it’s used for all sorts of

things it was never ever intended to be

421
00:07:31,670 –> 00:07:33,240
things it was never ever intended to be
so I think it’s extraordinarily

422
00:07:33,240 –> 00:07:33,250
so I think it’s extraordinarily

423
00:07:33,250 –> 00:07:35,650
so I think it’s extraordinarily
important that those things be separated

424
00:07:35,650 –> 00:07:35,660
important that those things be separated

425
00:07:35,660 –> 00:07:38,140
important that those things be separated

both law enforcement on a domestic stage

465
00:08:19,430 –> 00:08:22,150
both law enforcement on a domestic stage
and espionage across the world so that’s

466
00:08:22,150 –> 00:08:22,160
and espionage across the world so that’s

467
00:08:22,160 –> 00:08:24,610
and espionage across the world so that’s
just so much power in so few hands and I

468

just so much power in so few hands and I

469
00:08:24,620 –> 00:08:26,350
just so much power in so few hands and I
point out that part of I think while

00:08:41,050 –> 00:08:41,060
parts the larger of the two is the

485
00:08:41,060 –> 00:08:42,790
parts the larger of the two is the
criminal division which everyone expects

486
00:08:42,790 –> 00:08:42,800
criminal division which everyone expects

that’s what the FBI is supposed to do so

488
00:08:44,830 –> 00:08:44,840
that’s what the FBI is supposed to do so

489
00:08:44,840 –> 00:08:46,870
that’s what the FBI is supposed to do so
the smaller one is the CI

00:08:46,870 –> 00:08:46,880
the smaller one is the CI

491
00:08:46,880 –> 00:08:48,730
the smaller one is the CI
counterintelligence division which is

counterintelligence division which is

493
00:08:48,740 –> 00:08:51,220
counterintelligence division which is
essentially an espionage organization

494
00:08:51,220 –> 00:08:51,230
essentially an espionage organization

495
00:08:51,230 –> 00:08:53,230
essentially an espionage organization
much like the CIA it has a little bit

496
00:08:53,230 –> 00:08:53,240
much like the CIA it has a little bit

497
00:08:53,240 –> 00:08:56,110
much like the CIA it has a little bit
greater emphasis on CI counter-intel

498
00:08:56,110 –> 00:08:56,120
greater emphasis on CI counter-intel

499
00:08:56,120 –> 00:08:58,090
greater emphasis on CI counter-intel

993
00:17:25,159 –> 00:17:27,819
because they’re more public and it’s
easier to discuss a sort of forum but

994
00:17:27,819 –> 00:17:27,829
easier to discuss a sort of forum but

995
00:17:27,829 –> 00:17:29,919
easier to discuss a sort of forum but
they all had these top-level clearances

996
00:17:29,919 –> 00:17:29,929
they all had these top-level clearances

997
00:17:29,929 –> 00:17:31,389
they all had these top-level clearances
of course for the position that they

998
00:17:31,389 –> 00:17:31,399
of course for the position that they

999
00:17:31,399 –> 00:17:32,799
of course for the position that they
were in and they all had to be

1000
00:17:32,799 –> 00:17:32,809
were in and they all had to be

1001
00:17:32,809 –> 00:17:34,570
were in and they all had to be
polygraphed which is done periodically

1002
00:17:34,570 –> 00:17:34,580
polygraphed which is done periodically

1003
00:17:34,580 –> 00:17:36,460
polygraphed which is done periodically
theoretically it’s done every five years

1004
00:17:36,460 –> 00:17:36,470
theoretically it’s done every five years

1005
00:17:36,470 –> 00:17:38,200
theoretically it’s done every five years
or so now there’s a horrible backlog it

1006
00:17:38,200 –> 00:17:38,210
or so now there’s a horrible backlog it

1007
00:17:38,210 –> 00:17:40,090
or so now there’s a horrible backlog it
doesn’t take place that often but that

1008
00:17:40,090 –> 00:17:40,100
doesn’t take place that often but that

1009
00:17:40,100 –> 00:17:42,820
doesn’t take place that often but that
is the idea and one of the things I

1010
00:17:42,820 –> 00:17:42,830
is the idea and one of the things I

1011
00:17:42,830 –> 00:17:44,350
is the idea and one of the things I
think that needs to be built into that

1012
00:17:44,350 –> 00:17:44,360
think that needs to be built into that

1013
00:17:44,360 –> 00:17:45,820
think that needs to be built into that
that would eliminate a lot of these

1014
00:17:45,820 –> 00:17:45,830
that would eliminate a lot of these

1015
00:17:45,830 –> 00:17:48,159
that would eliminate a lot of these
people like James Comey and Peter struck

1016
00:17:48,159 –> 00:17:48,169
people like James Comey and Peter struck

1017
00:17:48,169 –> 00:17:50,169
people like James Comey and Peter struck
should never ever upheld a clearance

1018
00:17:50,169 –> 00:17:50,179
should never ever upheld a clearance

1019
00:17:50,179 –> 00:17:51,740
should never ever upheld a clearance
clearly they were not up

1020
00:17:51,740 –> 00:17:51,750
clearly they were not up

1021
00:17:51,750 –> 00:17:53,390
clearly they were not up
to the requirements you know they

1022
00:17:53,390 –> 00:17:53,400
to the requirements you know they

1023
00:17:53,400 –> 00:17:55,190
to the requirements you know they
weren’t reliable enough for national

1024
00:17:55,190 –> 00:17:55,200
weren’t reliable enough for national

1025
00:17:55,200 –> 00:17:56,870
weren’t reliable enough for national
security reasons to have a clearance

1026
00:17:56,870 –> 00:17:56,880
security reasons to have a clearance

1027
00:17:56,880 –> 00:17:58,370
security reasons to have a clearance
which of them by the way I don’t think

1028
00:17:58,370 –> 00:17:58,380
which of them by the way I don’t think

1029
00:17:58,380 –> 00:17:59,780
which of them by the way I don’t think
their clearances have been pulled even

1030
00:17:59,780 –> 00:17:59,790
their clearances have been pulled even

1031
00:17:59,790 –> 00:18:01,580
their clearances have been pulled even
yet but I think one of the questions

1032
00:18:01,580 –> 00:18:01,590
yet but I think one of the questions

1033
00:18:01,590 –> 00:18:03,050
yet but I think one of the questions
that should be built-in now this isn’t

1034
00:18:03,050 –> 00:18:03,060
that should be built-in now this isn’t

1035
00:18:03,060 –> 00:18:04,850
that should be built-in now this isn’t
just a single one question it would be a

1036
00:18:04,850 –> 00:18:04,860
just a single one question it would be a

1037
00:18:04,860 –> 00:18:06,620
just a single one question it would be a
series of questions to get to the bottom

1038
00:18:06,620 –> 00:18:06,630
series of questions to get to the bottom

1039
00:18:06,630 –> 00:18:08,090
series of questions to get to the bottom
of it but it should be built around the

1040
00:18:08,090 –> 00:18:08,100
of it but it should be built around the

1041
00:18:08,100 –> 00:18:09,860
of it but it should be built around the
