things got heated on the hill today Congressional Republicans took him at the head of the FBI and Bob Muller’s boss Deputy attorney-general Rod Rosenstein remember they are both Trump appointees if you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the trunk campaign present it to the damn grand jury if you have evidence at this present acted inappropriately presented to the American people whatever you got finish it the hell up casual Captain Benghazi their Trey Gowdy who seems to have forgotten how long he took with his little investigation that yielded nothing the back-and-forth dug into it bias text messages the president Trump’s claim that the molar team is a bunch of angry Democrat but it got a lot more personal with targeted questions at Rosen Stein himself information from you trying to conceal information during the boss mr. roses dying correct and my job is to make sure that we respond you’re concerned for your use of this to attack me provided this is been a long time this picture of a dirty. J as a rebuttal to the Russia probe so it was time and opportunity to put some meat on the bones this runs did you threaten staffers on the house intelligence committee media reports indicate you did call Dan email no sir and there’s no way to subpoena phone calls it is interesting that those who attack the media is fake news will then turn to it when it starts their purposes but anyway you look at it the intention was clear or dirty appropriate for me to recuse I’ll be more than happy to do so and let somebody else handle this but it’s my responsibility to do it my next guess was in the room as a member of the House Judiciary Committee Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez you’re welcome to Primetime sir what a day do you believe that there was meat put on the bones of the suggestion that I think if walk away from anything in this hearing is that they want to give the president a trophy and the trophies Russell Stein’s head on a platter that’s what they want they want to eliminate him discredit him impeach him get them fired so they can stop look Walmart let’s get to the real meat of the matter and that is if you ask VW attorney general and head of the FBI as I did did a foreign country try to undermine influence corrupt our election system during the 20s presidential election opinion of all of the intelligence agencies of the United States government so why are we talking about that and allowing that camping which is clear and secondly isn’t molars probe also looking into who might write have a try to influence the outcome of the investigation and clearly the Press the United States has told you and me and we’ve all heard them I fired call me cuz of the fake investigation into the Russian what he says collusion is brothers and sisters as a basis for getting rid of serpro by saying that the people who are doing we’re covering up for Clinton they just happen to be targeting two guys to make their face today right so so when I ask them I said from 0 to 100% who do you owe your job to W attorney general he said president Trump I asked mr. Ray the FBI director he said a hundred percent the president of the United States these are both Republicans and they’re both appointed president of the United States and it is the Republican Party trying to undermine their credibility so they can crush the probe into the Russian intervention in our electoral process and trying to destroy our democracy listen if it was very clear but for those that have read the inspector General’s report which I have you read the inspector General’s report they say that special agents truck didn’t play a significant role or any and undermining the investigation already leading the investigation so that’s it red herring they’re probably, you remember when the president would say almost every day can’t wait for the inspector General’s report right for the Republicans almost right like I in unison Spectre there was nothing there buy McCabe absolutely absolutely you know what you’re right you’re right but how does that lead back to the deputy attorney general how does that lead back to the current FBI American Bagel because they’re not giving them and that and that’s a rabbit hole they want us to go into so they want such mature did it would be against the rules against the rules to give them this kind of information plus you and I both know what known as did he works in collusion with the White House and they’ll take whatever information Windows document I’d like to have all of my friends are the Republican party and all of the members of the Judiciary Committee gather that information and give it to him it’s wrong what they’re doing trying to corrupt right anime navigation into something okay, let’s just remember we all agree everybody agrees that the Russians intervenes in our electoral process should or should their not being investigation into that I say after fundamental I’m sorry yeah but the coma we have to let mother he was a sign that you asked to get this done in 15 months look what I say let the investigation go where the investigation and the time it is more important that we be careful and instead of hurry because this is about undermining a fundamental democracy a fundamental Highway we elect those that lead our country and I think let’s give it time as you said earlier I mean my friend Trey Gowdy 2 years they spent more than that investigating Hillary Clinton and I remember I was in Congress 26 years ago what was more like 20 years ago when they began the investigation into Clinton that thing went on year after year after year after year so look let’s get to the bottom and let’s get the fact what’s the rush The Rush this they want to fire the deputy Attorney General of the United States so they can put somebody else in their place so that person can fire Mueller that is really dangerous democracy we should all be gathering other and saying let’s find out who tried to corrupt our electoral system and let’s go after them and put them in jail so let’s remember I’m like what my Republican colleagues said today there is meat on the bone there been indictments there have been already more there been at least I’m guilty please let’s let this go and let an experience prosecutor experience former head of the FBI what’s the rush the rush is letting the investigation what this all means for the business of the American people getting done is it just between now and the midterms is there just no chance that anything meaningful gets done on a bipartisan basis that might make people’s lives better today’s hearing was called by the Republicans it was an emergency hearing what was the emergency of having today’s hearing that they didn’t want to go on recess without giving one more answer my question the answer to your question is that elections have consequences and today hundreds of women I believe many of whom immigration wasn’t that big an issue for right I today getting involved today and acts of Civil Disobedience said enough of the treatment of children and separation of those that are coming elections have consequences people are organizing people are registering there’s an election in November and guess what until then I think you’re going to see much of what is going to come with continuing to happen because Como how do I work with somebody who says I’m going to be as mean as vicious as nasty as cruel to immigrants as possible as an election strategy to get my the reelected and work with me in a bipartisan manner I can’t do that I’m going to stand up for the children and we cannot rest until every child is returned to their parent Congressman Luis Gutierrez thank you very much
