Intel community shouldn’t be used by political parties: Rep. Gaetz


WE HAVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY DAVID BROWN OH. DAVID — BRUNO. BUT FIRST UP, CONGRESSMAN MATT GAETZ. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. WHAT DO WE KNOW SO FAR ABOUT SOMEONE INTERFACING WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES AND WORKING WITH THE FBI WITHOUT NAMING NAMES?>>WE HAVE SEEN REPORTS THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WAS THE SUBJECT OF SOME INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION. THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S A RED LINE WE SHOULDN’T CROSS AS A COUNTRY. YOU SHOULD NOT BE DESIROUS OF SYSTEMS THAT ALLOW PEOPLE TO USE THE APPARATUS OF GOVERNMENT TO SPY ON THEIR ENEMIES. WE ARE NOW GOING TO HAVE THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE INVESTIGATE ITSELF AGAIN. THE PRESIDENT NEED TO DEMAND THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TURN OVER TOP DEVIN NUNES AND TREY GOWDY DOCUMENTS THEY REQUESTED SO WE CAN DECLASSIFY DOCUMENTS AND SHOW THE METHOD USED TO SPY ON A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN. BUT IN THE ABSENCE OF THAT, WE’LL BE IN THE TYPICAL GROUNDHOG DAY EXPERIENCE. WE DEMAND ANSWERS FROM JUSTICE. THEY DELAY. WE SEE REDACTIONS. SO I THINK WE NEED TO MOVE THINGS ALONG A LOT FASTER. KENNEDY: IT’S DIFFICULT TO SIT THROUGH WHAT IS MOST OF IMPORTANT WHAT IS SCANDALOUS AND A THREAT TO THE PUBLIC. BOTH SIDE ARE TAKING THE SAME INFORMATION AND BLOWING IT UP AS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE REPUBLIC OR SOMETHING THAT IS JUST A POLITICAL PASSING FANCY. SO IT’S HARD TO TELL. IT SEEMS LIKE THERE ARE TWO DISTINCT TEAMS. AND EVERYONE WHO IS INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS, WHETHER IT’S VOTERS OR LEADERS IN CONGRESS, EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE LOSING HERE, AND WE ARE NOT GETTING ANY ACTUAL ANSWERS. MY CONCERN IS, IF THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION AND THE INSPECTOR GENERAL DON’T DELIVER REPORTS THAT ARE SATISFACTORY TO REPUBLICANS, THEY WILL USE THE SAME ROBUST SPY APPARATUS ON THEIR POLITICAL OPPONENTS BECAUSE THEY DID NOT SEE ENOUGH PUSHBACK WITH ANY OF THESE INVESTIGATIONS. HAPPENING?>>THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE. NO POLITICAL PARTY SHOULD WEAPONIZE THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY AGAINST THEIR OPPONENTS, PERIOD. BUT I WOULD SAY THE WORK WE HAVE DONE IN CONGRESS HAS YIELDED RESULTS. THE DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE FBI ANDREW McCABE FIRED AND REFERRED FOR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. LISA PAGE GONE FROM THE FBI. THE LEAKER MR. BAKER GONE FROM THE FBI. KENNEDY: ISN’T MOST OF OF THAT THE RESULT OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL’S WORK?>>I THINK IT’S A COMBINATION OF CHAIRMAN NUNES’ WORK AND BOB GOODLATTE. IF HILLARY CLINTON WERE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, THERE WOULDN’T BE ANY OF THOSE FIRINGS. IF WE CONTINUE TO JUST BEG FOR DOCUMENTS AND ACCEPT WHAT WE GET IN RETURN, THE BAD ACTORS IN THE DEEP STATE WILL BE ABLE TO RUN OUT THE CLOCK ON US AND HOPE THE DEMOCRATS REGAIN CONTROL OF CONGRESS. I THINK THE COUNTRY DESERVES A LOT BETTER. KENNEDY: I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT YOU KEEP GIVING MERE POWER AND — MORE POWER AND SPY TOOLS TO THE NSA AND THE CIS. SO IT’S DISINGENUOUS WHEN YOU ACT SURPRISED WHEN SOMEBODY ABUSES POWER FOR THEIR OWN MEANS.>>THAT’S A FAIR EVALUATION. VOTED TO REAUTHORIZE FISA IF WE HAD HAD THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE NOW. I FOUND A BILL INTRODUCED BY ADAM SCHIFF TO REFORM THE FISA PROCESS TO CREATE MORE TRANSPARENCY AND MORE IDENTIFIABLE STANDARD. ADAM SCHIFF NOW WON’T CO-SPONSOR HIS OWN BILL BECAUSE I HAVE TAKEN IT UP AS A REPUBLICAN. IT’S A FAIR BIPARTISAN SOLUTION. BUT DEMOCRATS WON’T SUPPORT WHAT THEY SUPPORTED PREVIOUSLY BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO GIVE ANY WINS TO THE REPUBLICANS. KENNEDY: WITH THE BLOATED

  1. If spying on political opposition is okay with the Democrats, then to hell with Watergate. The Republicans have an equal permit.

  2. trump accused Barack Obama of wiretapping trump towers then when nothing was found trump was left with egg on his face. goes to show the intelligence of trump. lord help us if anyone of trumps family members decide to become the head of the CIA. then it will have to be renamed the LIA- Less Intelligent Agency. trump has already turned the white house into a 3 ring circus. just call it trump and his circus of Washington clowns. impeach trump and MAPA-Make America Proud Again!!!

  3. Trump is always on the defense, explaining himself no matter what he says or does. All fake talk. Blah blah blah. Same talking points, different scandal.

  4. Trump should not have to deal with this. It is an unnecessary distraction from his duties. Trump please go all in and "you're Fired" all the swamp creatures

  5. This weak man is promoting reality distortion… Collecting Intel when a hostile foreign power tries to influence a pivotal aspect of the government is not where the "red line" is. Normally no political party would feel violated by this, they would be happy to see the portion of law enforcement entrusted with protecting the independence and integrity of the American political process doing their job. Siding with the hostile power over your own government is where the red line is – stupid.

    Only this administration sees it as a form of hostility. Why is that?
    Because this administration was ready and willing to cooperate with that hostile power, who most certainly was trying to use Trump, not help him. Wheather Trump's camp succeeded or not is another thing. But in being willing to do so, they went from being the subject of protection, to the subject of investigation. Tisk tisk.. But who's stupid fault is that?

    It's not Obamas because.. the FBI went to Obama and informed him after the fact, Obama didn't know about it or initiate it.

    The fact that all these political lemmings are ready to jump off a cliff in defense of Trump's immature and reckless behavior is hilarious. All that tough talk of patriotism and protecting America from Russia, etc.. for decades and in one fell swoop everyone turns straight bitch over night, just mad because a half black guy was elected president.. and they still feel emasculated. Hilarious

    This guy wants to bend reality to frame Trump as a victim for actual patriots just doing the basic job they where hired to do..

    Y'all are flushed down the toilet. If these congressmen weren't so short sighted, they would be trying to stand their ground and say the same thing they've been saying for decades now.. but being the feckless impressionable wannabes that they are, Trump pimped them and turned them out over some bullshit so easily. Hilarious

  6. They all knew how bad the system was and is and the rushed in to get that vote on FISA so it could be done before any of this came out. It is all BS folks.

  7. What has this 36 year old guy ever done for anyone in our community? Silver spooner: In 2008, Gaetz was arrested for a DUI as he was driving back from the Swamp, a nightclub on Okaloosa Island, Florida, in a 2001 BMW SUV registered to his father. While he was arrested and refused to take a breathalyzer test, "he didn't have his license suspended for a year when he refused the breath test—as Florida law dictates. And he didn't have that refusal used against him in a criminal proceeding." At the time of his arrest and consequent criminal proceedings, his father was serving as a local politician. The attorneys agreed to drop the case, despite the fact that the police reported that "Gaetz fumbled for his license and registration, his eyes were watery and bloodshot, and he swayed and staggered when he got out of the car," and Gaetz cited the dropped charges as proof that he was innocent.[64]

    Between 1999 and 2014, Gaetz received 16 speeding tickets in Florida
    He's a real community service guy…

  8. Trump and conspiracy theorists go together like a horse and carriage. The Attorney general will determine if there is any validity to the claim that the FBI imbedded someone into the trump campaign to derail their chances. It is a laughable misdirection from the Russia investigation but let's enjoy it for its Apprentice entertainment value while it withers on the vine.

  9. , so the Intel community shouldn’t be used by political parties, & a politician is sticking their beak into an investigation, that is ongoing. Nothing to see here folks, I’m just being a good guy, for the good guys, so that those who are a subject of national security can be shielded, because you know I’m all about being bi partisan, as long as the partisan is my guy in the fight.

  10. Meanwhile REPUGNANTKLANS taking state rights ,employee rights,health care,voter rights.

    Yeah they're all about truth and justice lmfao

    Mass shootings and hate crimes at a epic high, thanks KKKONSERVATIVE KKKRISTIANS

  11. Fox news is FAKE NEWS. The US people should discern. It is a shame. You show anchors have no sound moral values and are upholding base and wrong morals. I pity the next generation in US. It is the Trump administration and PATHETIC LIARS IN FOX NEWS who make up the swamp that Donald Trump must drain. He needs to bow out and not hold on tightly to his presidency that he is not worthy of. US is in a pitiful state of division and confusion. People should stay above all these FAKE RUBBISH and let your discerning good self rule. You have lost universal right values. I fear for the US. The citizens urgently need personal mastery and their personal good moral system to rise above all lies and inaccuracies and distinguish the rights from the grossly, explicit wrongs presented to the public. Please do something. The country has fallen to a very low level that you are no longer the world's most powerful but the greatest international clown full of lies and a coward congress that allows intimidation to overtake them for own personal agenda. Very, very sad.
