Whitaker: Barr, Ratcliffe are ‘perfect team’ to investigate Russia probe


SO WE WILL SEE. BYRON YORK, THANK YOU SO MUCH. JOINING US NOW, FORMER ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL MATTHEW WHITAKER. JOHN RATCLIFFE IS A MAN YOU KNOW WELL.>>WE WERE U.S. ATTORNEYS IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND HE WENT ON — I WENT BACK TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ULTIMATELY BECOMING THE ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR FOR SIX MONTHS. I THINK IS PERFECTLY QUALIFIED TO DO THIS WELL. I THINK HE’S A SMART, TALENTED INDIVIDUAL. HE’S SORT OF CUT HIS TEETH AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, SO HE UNDERSTANDS ALL THE PIECES AND PARTS OF NOT ONLY THE DEPARTMENT, THE GOVERNMENT. I THINK IS JUST PERFECT FOR THAT. STRAIGHT OUT OF CENTRAL CASTING FOR THAT ROLE.>>Sandra: I KNOW THAT YOU AND FOR MANY OF YOUR COLLEAGUES, ONE OF THE BIGGEST GOALS HERE IS RESTORING CONFIDENCE IN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. IF YOU THINK BILL BARR IS THE GUY TO DO THAT?>>I ALWAYS THOUGHT BILL BARR WAS GOING TO BE THE PERSON THAT TOOK OVER FROM AFTER I TOOK OVER FOR SESSIONS AND HE TOOK OVER FOR ME AS I REALLY THINK BILL IS THE PERFECT PERSON TO SORT OF TURN OVER EVERY ROCK AND RESTORE THE CONFIDENCE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE CONGRESS AND THE COURTS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. IF THERE’S A LOT OF GREAT PEOPLE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, DON’T GET ME WRONG. ONE OF THE CHALLENGES AS WE GET SEVERAL ACTS THAT APPEAR TO BE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED AND I THINK ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR IS GOING TO FIGURE THIS OUT AND HE’S GOING TO LOOK AT THE GENESIS OF THIS INVESTIGATION. HE’S GOT JOHN DURHAM LOOKING AT THAT, U.S. ATTORNEY OUT OF CONNECTICUT. GOING TO PROSECUTE ANYBODY THAT NEEDS TO BE PROSECUTED. WE STILL HAVE THEM OUT THERE LOOKING AT SOME OF THINGS REGARDING COMEY’S MEMOS AND THE LIKE. I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS BILL BARR WILL BE BRINGING TO A CONCLUSION HERE AND SINCE THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION IS OVER NOW AND NOW WE CAN FOCUS ON SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS AND I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW HOW THESE INVESTIGATIONS STARTED AND WHETHER ANY OF THEM WERE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED.>>Sandra: ‘S ARE TO BE CLEAR, JOHN RATCLIFFE WILL NOT HAVE PROSECUTORIAL POWERS BUT LAWS WERE BROKEN, BILL BARR WILL PROSECUTE.>>WHAT HE CAN DO IS LOOK AT SORTING THE ENTIRE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY AND SEE IF THERE WERE SYSTEMIC FAILURES FOR HOW THESE INVESTIGATIONS WERE KICKED OFF AND SOME OF THE ISSUES WITH PAPADOPOULOS AND OTHERS AND HOW OTHER COUNTRIES WERE INTERACTING WITH. I THINK WILL BE VERY INTERESTING BUT WITH BARR AND RATCLIFF BOTH WORKING THESE ANGLES, I THINK ARE THE PERFECT TEAM.>>Sandra: DEMOCRATS HAVE DISMISSED OF THIS INVESTIGATION. IMAGINE THAT, IT’S GOTTEN POLITICAL. BUT I MEAN THE POLITICS AROUND THIS, WE JUST CAME OFF OF THE MUELLER HEARINGS LAST WEEK, IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE YOU HAVE FULL FAITH WHEN YOU MENTION JOHN DURHAM AND MICHAEL HOROWITZ THAT THESE ARE THE GUYS TO RESTORE JUSTICE TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. I WANT TO ASK ABOUT WHAT WE JUST HEARD FROM BYRON YORK THERE AND JOHN RATCLIFFE SORT OF DROPPING THAT BOMB ON SUNDAY TALKING TO MARIA BARTIROMO BUT TALKING ABOUT GLENN SIMPSON, BRUCE OHR, JAMES CLAPPER, JAMES COMEY. WHERE DO YOU THINK HE GETS?>>THERE’S A LOT OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS HERE AND MAYBE SOME OF THE ANSWERS ARE SIMPLE, BUT WE DON’T KNOW AND I THINK THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THIS IS WHERE THE TRANSPARENCY AND THE ACCOUNTABILITY NEEDS TO COME TO BEAR. IF SOMEBODY DID SOMETHING WRONG OR SOMEBODY DID SOMETHING CRIMINAL, THEN THEY NEED TO BE HELD TO ACCOUNT. THAT’S THE AMERICAN SYSTEM AND THAT’S THE WAY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WORKS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IF THEY ARE NOT, IF EVERYBODY WAS ABOVEBOARD, THAN THE FACTS WILL TELL THE TRUTH. THAT’S WHAT WE NEED TO RELY ON.>>Sandra: ON THE PART OF DEMOCRATS, JERRY NADLER HAS BEEN RELENTLESS ON HIS CALLS FOR INVESTIGATIONS, SAYING THAT THIS PRESIDENT IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW. IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO STOP FOR THEIR PUSH FOR INVESTIGATIONS AND OF COURSE YOU’RE SEEING THAT GROWING CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT OF THIS PRESIDENT.>>THEY ARE NOT, BUT IT’S OVER. I WAS IN THE ROOM WHEN THE PRESIDENT — AS ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND WHAT I SAW WAS SOMEONE THAT WAS FOCUSED ON MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND MAKING THE EXPERIENCE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SOMETHING THAT IS AS GOOD AS IT’S EVER BEEN. YOU LOOK AT THE ECONOMY, YOU LOOK AT THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE. YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THE THINGS AND ADVANCES WE ARE MAKING AN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. THIS PRESIDENT IS ACCOMPLISHING SO MUCH OF HIS AGENDA AND WE NEED TO GET THIS MUELLER INVESTIGATION BEHIND US AND MOVE ON TO THE IMPORTANT WORK OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT AT THE SAME




Comments
  1. The genesis of the entire Russian Collusion Delusion was clearly a fraudulent attempt by the Democratic Party and their bureaucratic lackey`s to overturn a lawful presidential election and depose a duly and lawfully elected president. It was based on evidence (the Steele dossier) that was known at the time to have been a fraudulent, bought and paid for by the Democrats, fictional document. It was presented to a FISA court by then FBI Director James Comey, who knew it to be false, to obtain search warrants against the Trump campaign, itself a crime. These unlawful acts were the basis of an illegal attempt to overthrow a sitting president, and should result in nothing less than Conspiracy to Commit Treason charges. And let`s not forget Hillary. She destroyed evidence (33,000 emails, cellphones, both had been subpoenaed by Congress, and bleached incriminating servers) and lied repeatedly to Congress. Her Obstruction of Justice crimes are well documented. Their crimes against this nation can`t be whitewashed, and cannot be allowed to go unpunished.

  2. The people behind Russiagate have to be brought to justice.
    The entire thing was obviously political.

    Our intelligence community was used as a political cudgel.

  3. Criminals, no matter who, MUST NOW BE HELD TO ACCOUNT =  music to America's ears!  Mathew Whitaker for Director of FBI/CIA NOW!   DISMANTLE all other Intel (surveillance)Communities and their UK & corporate-owned puppet masters.  Extradite/INDICT UK' s Arvender Sambie/AlLison Saunders/Richard Dearlove as co-conspirators in coup d' etat!

  4. Mr Whitaker, we need you with a badge, cuffs, & a team of Patriots (who knows noone in government) to be fulltime cuffers for POTUS.

  5. it looks like the department of justice was misnamed. The dept. should have been Named the dept. of injustice, after Comey got hold of the reins.

  6. I feel Whitaker was watering down the seriousness of this investigation. THere is a large group of people at the top of the FBI etc; that have all been a part of a Coo to get President Trump out of his chair. Justice Will not be served unless these people go to jail. THis includes Clinton, Obama and all the way down the line. This was a Coo attempt to overthrow President Trump. It still is.

  7. Dan Ratcliffe, Trump's pick for director of national intelligence, was the one who started the conspiracy theory in January 2018 that the text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok before the 2016 election were proof that there was a "secret society" working against Trump. Ratcliffe's claims were amplified by conservative media outlets, but immediately fell apart when the rest of the text messages were released. "We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against him," Ratcliffe said on Fox News in 2018. "I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context." (Daily Beast)

  8. Barr better get this done BEFORE the election because God forbid IF a Democrat somehow wins the election, all of this will disappear in a New York minute (so to speak) and you can kiss equal justice under the law goodbye.

  9. Whitaker's insight is spot on. Thank you Sir for holding the office as AG when the country needed a steady Stewart until Barr was confirmed. Your appearance in front of the Senate and Congress Cmt's was outstanding and you took no guff stood your ground for the Office of the AG and you Sir are greatly appreciated by myself and others.

  10. The Republicans have betrayed and now abandoned their country. They have succumbed to every temptation that has presented itself . Bribery, foreign assistance, rigged elections, voter suppression,dark money and partisan gerrymandering. This is the behavior of people that can no longer win in a fair and democratic nation. AS long as they and their narcissist enabler get what they want from a nation that has already given them so much they keep scheming and taking turns spitting on our crumbling democracy.

  11. BOY! You people must think it’s easy to “restore the confidence of the American People”. I don’t think you will ever restore the confidence of the American People in the FBI or any of the Intelligence Agencies until you change the law to make them personally liable for their acts of Gross Negligence! Then the American People will “clean them up” by lawsuits against “individuals” who abuse their power. No more “promoting” for misconduct….the person will be sued into oblivion and that is the ONLY THING that will send a message loud and clear that if you are a Government Official and you break the law, you are going to pay “personally”. Not the Government paying “tax dollars” but you paying your own money in a civil lawsuit by the people you have abused. Go tell CUMMINGS that and watch him turn green!

  12. Pay no attention to or feed the TROLLS.
    They are the negative commenters.
    They have NOTHING!
    TRUMP is opening cases of cans of worms.
    Hopefully, there are some who go to prison.

  13. The Deep State is like a weed, you need to get all the roots out if you don't want it to come back. They need to be very hard on those that conspired to fix the election.

  14. WHEN …is this nightmare going to end. If I were a Democrat, I would be so……embarrassed about this stupid attack on our President! Meanwhile cities like Baltimore are suffering – a city we could spend our time and money on to help them. Instead we spend millions (billions???) on this ridiculous and vicious attack on the best leader we have had for decades. Talk about race attacks!! They just hate that the POTUS is white, wealthy, way intelligent with the most beautiful family anywhere (Melania is the most beautiful and gracious first lady in our history).

  15. God has a mysterious way to accomplish his will. They controlled and manipulated everything until few years ago😁 It doesn’t matter how corrupt and crooked the establishment is, the rule of law will prevail.
    They never thought they would have to answer for their wrongdoings 😎
    Sweet justice, sweet justice!!
    I can smell it😎

  16. Wonder if Hillary is sleepless at night with a bottle of whiskey in hand…you bet she is..among others that was in her shadow…

  17. The opposite of perfect is called Govern Mental – Forget about justice you will hear colleague excuses within and the Gullible just accepts them!!

  18. What a little circle jerk of foreign trolls you have going on here. Is that what the YouTube comment section has turned into? Its where all the Russian and Trump trolls go when they get kicked off of Twitter apparently. Don't enjoy each other too much. You might be related.

  19. Watch your "BACK" boys-the dumocratic left cartel is anchored in the CIA and FBI and you never know what they are capable of. Take care, and get it done!

  20. If the democrats are so hell bent on investigations how about investigating their own party. There is so much to be investigated.

  21. Why are they the perfect team? So you all can set up Trump ? I don't know what it is with you people and Trump, trump is trying to do good for our country and you're just trying to tear him down. I don't understand it why don't you leave the man alone and let him run the country he's doing good he's bringing jobs to the country he's doing what he needs to do to make our country great like it was once before so why don't you just leave him alone let him do his job and shut up!

  22. CAN I JUST SAY THAT TRUMP WON THE BALTIMORE WAR AND HAS BEEN WINNING ALL THE WARS UP TO THE BALTIMORE WAR ALSO. TRUMP HAS TRUTH ON HIS SIDE. SO PROUD OF HIM!!!!!!! THANK YOU PREZ. TRUMP!!!!!!

  23. Acting attorney general?
    bwhahaha
    Like most of these losers, he’s a bottom feeder who has one credential…
    He’s slave to trump.
    Ratcliffe is slave to trump.
    Barr is slave to trump.
    They all get there not because they are quality
    They get there because they don’t have an independent thought between them.
    They are mindless trumpanzees.
    And trump?
    He’s slave to Putin.
    I’m just stunned that there are Americans who can support this scam.

  24. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – Dec 18, 2018

    Illegal immigration costs the United States more than 200 Billion Dollars a year. How was this allowed to happen?

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – Jan 27, 2019

    We are not even into February and the cost of illegal immigration so far this year is 2019$18,959,495,168. Cost Friday was $603,331,392. There are at least 25,772,342 illegal aliens, not the 11,000,000 that have been reported for years, in our Country. So ridiculous! DHS

  25. It's nice seeing Whitaker back on the media. He's been kind of quiet. I think he may be up for a possible position within the Trump admin. We'll see. I'm still trying to understand why we even have an ODNI.

  26. Whitaker for the head the FBI would be a great Start. Congress is gone he can do a recess appointment and not have the Dems slow walk it.

  27. Whitaker for the head the FBI would be a great Start. Congress is gone he can do a recess appointment and not have the Dems slow walk it.

  28. Obama. Is behind this entire attempt to take over our government and turn the US into a socialist regime…lock him up!

  29. 3:02…problem is with the tangible word ' transparency ', which needs a clear poly adhesive sticker on it, warning the people that there are GMO's in an unnamed, unidentified, synthetic campaign product, where the politics dont equal the physics of the agenda, simply because paralegals running the Judicial Branch have disconnected the definition of a word, from its true meaning, ,(, representation.) All to mitigate, litigate, and negate their ' purview '…and occupy the people, for just enough time to invoke more prejudice…this is our academic ' leakal ' law makers,,, at play, and We The People, and our first Amendment Right, are their practice.

  30. The republicans conducting an investigation is EXACTLY what is needed. Ill bet the dems are quaking in their depends right now.

  31. Democrats have been riding on the candy leigh or decades, and they be don't do anything for the people, nut stesl thir money to line their pockets!! I can't gigure out WHY DO THE PEOPLE IN THES DEMOCRT CITIES KEEP VOTING THEM IN, OR, MAYBE THEY DON'T VOTE THEM IN. MAYBE DEAD PEOPLE VOTE FOR THESE DEMOCRATS IN WITH CROOKED VOTING TECHNIQUES AND CROOKED COUNTING, LIKE THEY TRIED TO STEAL THE PREIDENTIAL ELECTION!! THEM DAMNED DEMOCRATS ARE ON THE GRAVY TRAIN!!!

  32. Will the straight people have their own law to protect them from hate speech and violence against them. Fair is fair

  33. WHY ARE COMMENTS TURNED OFF FOX? Example. jussie Smollett. What's your reasoning? If you post a video it has to be able to comment on.

  34. "Comments are disabled" on the Jussie Small Hat case. … "case??" what do you need freaking Shylock Holmes to decode what has already officially been announced by the Chicago Police? what the hell man!

  35. lol Barr is the perfect actor and perfect AG to let Comey SKATE! He just said no prosecution of Cummy for his crimes!

  36. Hey Matt, you look pretty f'in stupid now. Then again, what else is new. Got any new scams to sell America yet?

  37. Tick tock, tick tock, Where's Huber?, Where's Durham? What is Barr Doing?? What is Trump doing? Where is The Wall?, Lock Her Up?…. Not SEEING IT…. PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION..EPSTEIN? HUMAN TRAFFICKING?? ……. Tick tock?…. Come on Man?….. It's been 2 weeks since most of he last comments were left … I bet nothing is done in a Year from now, I hope I'm wrong.
