Was It Your Policy That Both Administrations Should
be treated equally? That is would there have been any reason from a department of Justice standpoint to approach an Obama administration official differently from a Trump administration official . In fact, it’s. We made that very determination when I was really insistent that we notified the White House about general flynn. It was in part because I wanted to make sure that we were treating the trump administration. The same way that we would the Obama administration okay so had that occurred here.
What Would That Have Consisted Of
what would it have looked like had you treated an official from the Trump administration, The same as you would have in the Obama administration who would have been notified before any of this could have proceeded. We did do the same thing. We did go to the White House and notify. The White House counsel about what we have learned about General Flynn, What would have been different though is with respect. I’m not sure why my likes just went out what would have been different is that with respect to the interview of General Flynn from a protocol standpoint.
I Would Have Notified The White
House counsel in advance before that interview okay did anything like that happen here. I mean was anyone from the Trump team notified prior to the interview. No that was one of my concerns about it. But this was a protocol issue not a legal issue okay, but that was certainly something that would have been an irregularity. The the you’ve acknowledged then that the Obama administration treated the incoming Trump administration differently.
- counsel learned general flynn different
- interview general flynn protocol standpoint
- white house general flynn wanted
- different respect interview general flynn
- notified white house general flynn
The Department Of Justice Treated The
incoming Trump administration differently than it would of the Obama administration and now senator we were. working really hard to make sure that we did not treat them differently. Yeah, Yeah! I understand you were working hard to do that, but that wasn’t. In fact the outcome the protocol was different you deviated from the ordinary protocol well. The difference in the protocol here is that the FBi conducted the interview of general Flynn without a courtesy call to the White House Council okay when when you told attorney when you told director Comey that there there should have been a discussion about recording the interview in raising these things with Comey He responded with something like you can understand why I did this to which according to your 302.
You Responded No And Comey Responded.
He didn’t want to look political and that you. The 302 also notes that you were offended by that implication can you elaborate on this tell me. Why you were offended and and what specifically offended you? Senator you’ve probably heard me say too many times Now I was a prosecutor at Doj for almost 30 years. I prosecuted public corruption cases as an ausa Democrats and Republicans and the way we do our job or did our job at Doj was that you don’t consider political implications in making prosecutive or investigative decisions and I was offended by director Comey’s implication that he would be perceived differently than I would got it got it um let me ask you was was it irregular for agents to plan to attempt to quote get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired before the interview, as stated in Bill pre-steps notes is that an irregularity I’m sorry.
I I Loved Our Wi-Fi Connection Here
and all I heard was at the end was that. Yes would you mind complaining the question for agents to plan to get to quote get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired well. Certainly that’s not an appropriate way for the FBi to conduct itself. I don’t believe that that’s what they did with respect to General Flynn and I think if you read the 302 it’s it’s pretty clear is it irregular for mccabe to have pressure General Flynn to appear without counsel um all right just to make clear I want to get to the bottom of what went wrong, though how was a fisa application to surveil an American citizen and a major party presidential campaign approved with 17 significant errors and omissions and no one knew until the Department of Justice Inspector General conducted an audit an audit by the way that would have never been conducted had the surveillance.
Not Involved The Staffer Of A
future president.’s campaign had President Trump lost in 2016. These significant errors and emissions would never have come to light. Would they Oh.
I Dont Know That You Know Inspector General
Horowitz, I’ve known him for a long time he’s a very thorough guy. So I wouldn’t count on that necessarily being a different result. Then were you were you aware that agents were using information compiled by Christopher Steele at the request of the DNc. At the time you signed either the initial carter page Fisa application or the first renewal.
I Was I Was Not Aware That
the DNc was funding it, but I think we suspected that there was a chance, but we did not know that to be a fact and in fact the Inspector general did not identify that as an error, which by the way not not the quibble. Here there were seven errors, not 17 and the fizes that I signed but one error is too many Mr. Chairman I can ask one more brief question were you aware of the concerns with the reliability of the information that was provided by Christopher Steele and what we now refer to as the Steele dossier before signing either the initial Carter page Fisa application or the first renewal a lot of those concerns come from the interview of the subsource that took place after I signed both the original and the first renewal thank you Mr. Chairman, I see my time!
