Jordan previews FISA abuse report, blasts Dems’ ‘socialist philosophy’


FROM KEVIN McCARTHY, REVIEWING THE INSPECTOR GENERAL FIZA REPORT. PEER JIM JORDAN, RANKING REPUBLICAN ON, JOINING US NOW. THANKS FOR BEING HERE. SO, MANAGE THE COUNTRY’S EXPECTATIONS WHEN IT COMES TO THIS REPORT. WHAT WILL WE SEE? WHAT IMPACT WILL IT HAVE?>>THINK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. WE KNOW THAT THE FBI, WE KNOW THAT THEY PUT PETER STRZOK IN CHARGE OF RUNNING THE INVESTIGATION, AND WE KNOW THAT JAMES COMEY, JIM COMEY OPENED THE INVESTIGATION, PUT PETER STRZOK — THE GUY WHO SAID WE WILL STOP TRUMP, LEAKED MEMOS TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES” SO THAT WE CAN GET A SPECIAL COUNSEL, AND THEN THE MAIN THING THAT WE GOT FROM THAT REPORT A FEW WEEKS AGO WAS THAT THE JANUARY 2017 TRUMP TOWER MEETING, THEY WENT UP THERE, TRYING TO SET UP THE PRESIDENT, TRYING TO TRAP THEM, ALL WHILE TELLING HIM THAT HE WASN’T UNDER INVESTIGATION. THE CHARACTERIZATION OF THIS IS EXACTLY RIGHT, AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HIS NEXT REPORT, WHICH WE SHOULD GET IN A MATTER OF WEEKS.>>Bill: IT IS WEEKS AWAY?>>I THINK IT PROBABLY IS. I HAVE THE UTMOST CONFIDENCE AND BILL BARR, BUT HE IS GOING TO GO THROUGH THE CLASSIFICATIONS, THE DESIGNATIONS. BILL BARR HAS ALWAYS AIRED ON THE SIDE OF TRANSPARENCY. B2 HE IS ALSO PROMISING ACCOUNTABILITY. WILL THERE BE ACCOUNTABILITY?>>I HOPE SO. HOW DID WE LEARN ABOUT PETER STRZOK AND LISA PAGE? HOW DID WE LEARN ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE LIED UNDER OATH? HOW DID WE LEARN ABOUT THE TRUMP TOWER MEETING WHERE THEY TRY TO TRUMP THE PRESIDENT? WE HEARD ABOUT THAT FROM MR. HOROWITZ. THE INVESTIGATION WILL DETERMINE IF, IN FACT, SOMEONE IS GOING TO POSSIBLY GO TO JAIL –>>Bill: ONE MORE POINT. WE MAY NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS FROM SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR FROM NOW. JUST ONE MORE — ANDY McCABE IS SAYING THAT HE HAS NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. DOES THAT TELL US ANYTHING?>>I DON’T KNOW. ALL I KNOW WAS WHAT WAS REPORTED NEXT WEEK. UNDERSTAND THIS TOO. GETTING THEIR REPORT, THERE INVESTIGATION, BUT UNDERSTAND WHAT BILL BARR SAID A FEW MONTHS AGO WHEN HE FIRST TESTIFIED. HE SAID THERE WAS A FAILURE OF LEADERSHIP OF THE UPPER ECHELON OF THE FBI. THAT IS CERTAINLY TRUE. THAT INCLUDES BAKER, PETER STRZOK, CARTER PAGE. CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT TOOK PLACE. THEN HE USE THE TERM “POLITICAL SURVEILLING.” UNAUTHORIZED. SO THAT IS SCARY. I HAVE THE UTMOST CONFIDENCE THAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO THE KIND OF INVESTIGATION THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE IF THEY DID WRONG, WHICH I THINK THEY DID.>>Sandra: DEMOCRATS PUSHING FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT. HERE IS JERRY NADLER, CLEARING UP WHAT SOME HAVE SEEN SOME MIXED MESSAGES WHEN IT COMES TO HOW THEY PROCEED.>>IT IS NOT NECESSARILY WHAT IS REQUIRED. THAT IS A MADE UP TERM. IT IS, HOWEVER, WHAT WE WERE DOING. WE HAVE HAD FILINGS WITH THE COURTS, PUBLIC STATEMENTS. IN THE COMMITTEE. WE ARE CONDUCTING INVESTIGATIONS AMONG OTHER THINGS, DETERMINING ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT.>>Sandra: FROM YOUR VIEW, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?>>WHAT IS GOING ON IS WHAT THEY DID LAST WEEK. THEY CHANGE THE RULES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME. THEY CHANGED THE RULES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CONGRESS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO MAKE IT EASIER TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT. THEY ARE BOUND AND DETERMINED TO GO AFTER THIS PRESENT, WHICH EVERYONE KNOWS IS NOT WARRANTED, NOT JUST A FIVE, BUT THEY ARE BOUND AND DETERMINED TO DO IT. CHANGE THE RULES TO MAKE IT EASIER TO DO THIS. THEY ALSO VOTED TO TAKE AWAY PEOPLE’S GUN RIGHTS. THAT IS HOW RADICAL THE DEMOCRATS ON THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ARE. THEY’RE GOING TO MOVE AHEAD. WE HAVE HIM COMING IN TOMORROW FOR A HEARING, BUT IT IS WRONG.>>Bill: THAT HEARING SHOULD TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE. WE WILL SEE HOW THAT DEVELOPS. KIND OF GAVE YOU A CHOICE HERE. A, B, C. TAKE A LISTEN TO THIS.>>I DON’T THINK THERE SHOULD BE ANY CONFUSION. THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN ENGAGED TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT TO RECOMMEND ARTICLE IMPEACHMENT. WE ARE LOOKING AT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, ABUSE OF POWER, CORRUPTION PROBABLY.>>Bill: ABUSE OF POWER, CORRUPTION PROBABLY. I GUESS YOU COULD SAY ALL OF THE ABOVE. WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?>>WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO? THEY CHANGE THE RULES LAST WEEK, BELT, BECAUSE NOTHING ELSE IS WORKING FOR THEM. REMEMBER, MICHAEL COHEN HEARING WAS A FLOP. THE WHOLE COUNTRY SAW THAT THE BOB MUELLER HEARING WAS A FLOP, SO THEY SAID WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO? LET’S CHANGE THE RULES, FIGURE OUT WHAT WE CAN DO TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR US TO GO AFTER THIS PRESENT. THEY ARE BOUND AND DETERMINED, EVEN THOUGH HE HAS HAD AN AMAZING TWO AND A HALF YEARS OF LEADING OUR COUNTRY. HE KNOWS WHAT THEY WILL PICK? BUT THEY WILL PROCEED AHEAD BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT THEY ARE DETERMINED TO DO.>>Sandra: TED CRUZ OVER THE WEEKEND WAS MAKING THE CASE THAT IT IS NOT JUST IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT. THEY JUST WANT TO IMPEACH SOMEBODY. HERE’S TED CRUZ.>>I BET YOU THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC DEBATE, THEY WILL ALL BE SAYING IMPEACH KAVANAUGH, IMPEACHMENT TRUMP. THERE IS NOBODY THEY DON’T WANT TO IMPEACH. THEY JUST HAVE TO LET THE ANGER GO AND RECOGNIZE THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS ACTUALLY MOVES ON.>>Sandra: AS THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL CONTINUES, LOOKING FORWARD TO 2020, DO YOU SEE THIS GOING AWAY ANYTIME SOON?>>NO, THINK ABOUT THIS, THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR DRINKING STRAWS, PRIVATE HEALTH CARE, YOUR GUNS. THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE, AND THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR PRESIDENT. THAT IS WHO TODAY’S LEFT IS. I THINK SENATOR TED CRUZ IS EXACTLY RIGHT. THAT IS HOW WE SHOULD FRAME IT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR LIBERTY, YOUR FREEDOM. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE UP AGAINST. SOCIALIST PHILOSOPHY IS THAT THE DEMOCRATS NOW HAVE, VERSUS FREEDOM. I THINK THAT’S HOW YOU FRAME UP THIS CAMPAIGN OVER THE NEXT YEAR AND A HALF, AND WHEN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THAT IN HERE THAT –>>Bill: YOU MENTIONED BRETT KAVANAUGH. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?>>WHAT’S GOING ON IS WOW, THE MAINSTREAM PRESS LIED TO US AGAIN. WHAT I THINK IS INTERESTING IS GOOD JOURNALIST LIKE MOLLIE HEMINGWAY WHO GOT TO THE TRUTH. THE GOOD JOURNALIST WHO GET TO THE TRUTH. THIS IS SO MUCH LIKE THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION, WHERE THEY TOLD US ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN, AND WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE, IT WASN’T ACCURATE. IT WASN’T TRUE. THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE
