>> The president has been consistent in the investigation only in his obstructive behavior. I trust the department. I don’t trust the president. So I would like it hear from the DOJ on Tuesday before our committee and I am going to leave it to our ranking member who has led us, I think, very, very well through this investigation to make those calls.
HEGSETH: “Trust the department, not the president. Here to react Dan Bongino former NYPD officer, former Secret Service agent and host of the Dan Bongino show which can you find on anywhere where podcasts are available. Dan, thank you for joining us this morning. So your reaction to how Democrats are reacting to the White House decision to say, hey, let’s make sure we are not releasing anything to compromise national security in this memo.”
BONGINO: “Pete, the Democrats have forfeited all credibility on this case. They haven’t told the truth from day one. Pete, here’s what’s even more tragically amusing about the Democrats. They step — they lie so much they step on their own stories. They told us before the release of the Nunes Republican memo, remember this, oh my gosh sources and methods, it’s going to jeopardize national security. Nobody should see this. Cover it up. Sweep it under the rug. Then the memo came out oh this is a big nothing burger. This is a total dud. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. They have not told the truth from day one on this. They have forfeited all their credibility. This is important. They are covering up what I believe to be the biggest scandal in modern political history. That is the spying on of the Trump team by the Obama Administration with no evidence to do so.”
Griff: Go ahead.
Rachel: One other thing I love that you call it Obama gate it goes all the way there and he has sort of gotten a little bit of a pass on that. My question is about the underlying facts of the memo — the original Republican memo. Those who have seen it say that — or those who have seen the Democrat memo say that memo does not undercut what was said about the FISA agreement or the proof for the FISA agreement that it hasn’t undercut that so when this all comes out, and we expect that it will come out. Aren’t they going to just have to eat their words? Aren’t they going to have to backtrack on all of this?
>> Yeah. Rachel, you make a great point. Listen, the Democrats could put out all the memos you want. Put out memos on the weather. Great. I don’t care what you put out memos on. The bottom line is the Democrat memo does not undercut the essence of this scandal. And let’s uncomplicate this for everybody watching. The Obama team spied on the trump team. The information used was presented through a dossier. The information in the dossier came from the Russians and it came from the Clinton campaign. What does that mean? What it means is, the Clinton campaign hijacked the justice system. The justifiable system was basically bought off by the highest political bidder and that was Clinton campaign to gather information from their own con signature Larry to get in the hands of the FBI to use as an excuse to spy on the trump team. Nothing in the Democrat memo is going to change that one more point on in this is important too. The Democrats can’t run from this. There are court transcripts of people in court with their right hand up saying I swear to this. They cannot run from this. There is no plausible didn’t for the Democrat.
