♪ ♪>>Sean: THE ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR HAD STRONG WORDS ABOUT ROBERT MUELLER’S UPCOMING TESTIMONY, QUESTIONING WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE EVEN HOLDING A HEARING WITH A FORMER SPECIAL COUNSEL. LET’S LISTEN IN.>>IT SEEMS TO ME THE ONLY REASON FOR DOING THAT IS TO CREATE SOME KIND OF PUBLIC SPECTACLE. IF BOB DECIDES HE DOESN’T WANT TO BE SUBJECT TO THAT, THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WAS CERTAINLY BACK AND PRAYED>>Sean: TONIGHT CONGRESSMAN PETER KING, NEW YORK, HIS WARNING, “SEVERE, SERIOUS ABUSES BY THE FBI AND CIA IN THE RUSH OF PROBE ARE GOING TO COME OUT.” WE’VE BEEN SAYING THAT FOR TWO PLUS YEARS. JOINING US NOW, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, FORMER CONGRESSMAN TREY GOWDY. ONE THING I’VE ALWAYS LIKED ABOUT YOU, WHEN YOU DIG IN, GOD HELP WHOEVER IS ON THE OTHER SIDE, YOU AS A PROSECUTOR, YOU NEVER LOST A CASE, CORRECT?>>I’VE NEVER WON ONE WITH MY WIFE. SO I AM OKAY IN THE COURTROOM HAVEN’T DONE WELL AT HOME.>>Sean: [LAUGHS] THAT’S OKAY. THAT IS A GOOD LINE.>>30 YEARS WORTH OF LOSSES.>>Sean: I WANT YOU IN THESE HEARINGS HAVE TIMES THAT I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF. NOW TRY TO BRING US INTO WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING IN YOUR VIEW. YOU HAVE THE INSPECTOR GENERAL, YOU HAVE THE COMMENTS OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, YOU HAVE MUELLER TESTIFYING, WHICH I THINK WILL BACKFIRE, THEN YOU HAVE DURHAM, STEELE, ALL THESE PEOPLE COMING OUT LAST MINUTE ON FISA ABUSE, WHAT DO YOU HAPPENING?>>A COUPLE OF THINGS. I THINK THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE HEARING NEXT WEEK WITH MUELLER WILL BE A CARNIVAL. IT WILL BE A FREAK SHOW. THINK BACK TO MARCH OF 2017, SEAN, WHEN DEVIN NUNES HAD A PUBLIC HEARING — I LOVE HIM — BUT PUBLIC HEARINGS DON’T TURN OUT WELL, NO MATTER WHO CALLS THEM. HE CALLED A PUBLIC HEARING, HOW JIM COMEY, 100 TIMES, THE WITNESS SAID, “I CANNOT ANSWER THAT QUESTION IN THIS FORM.” YOU THINK THE MEDIA WITH A COME OF THAT WAS A WASTE OF EVERYBODY’S TIME, DON’T EVER DO THAT AGAIN. THEY LOVE IT. THEY LOVE IT BECAUSE WHAT ADAM SCHIFF AND ERIC SWALWELL AND THE OTHERS DID IS READ NEWSPAPER ARTICLES THAT CONTAIN CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ONLY FOR THE REDNESS the redness , THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO SAY, I CANNOT COMMENT ON THE SETTING. THAT IS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT WEEK. MUELLER’S REPORT IS OUT. HE’S NOT GOING TO DEVIATE FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THAT ARE BARRED. THAT NOT KEEP HOUSE DEMOCRATS — THE FOCUS WILL BE ON THE QUESTION, NOT THE ANSWER. THE OTHER THING THAT IS GOING ON, I LOVE PETER KING, BUT REPUBLICANS HAVE GOT TO GET BETTER AT NOT ALWAYS PROMISING WHAT IS GETTING READY TO COME. LOOK AT WHAT ALREADY EXISTS! LOOK AT WHAT HOROWITZ FOUND! STRZOK AND PAID WITH A HISTORIC LEVEL OF BIAS. YOU HAVE A DOSSIER THAT WAS USED IN ACCORD PLEADED THAT WAS NOT VERIFIED. YOU HAVE STEELE, WHO WAS DEFROCKED AS A SOURCE BUT YET CONTINUE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO AS THE WORLD’S PREMIER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY, AND YOU HAVE A DOJ SENIOR OFFICIAL IN BRUCE OHR WHO WAS IN THE CHAIN OF EVIDENCE FROM FUSION GPS TO THE DOJ. WE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO PROMISE ANYTHING ELSE! THAT OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH FOR MY FELLOW CITIZENS TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, SOMETHING AIN’T RIGHT!>>Sean: WHO AUTHORED THE MUELLER REPORT, WHEN DID HE KNOW THERE WAS NO COLLUSION? HOW IS THAT HE HAD TIME TO THE TAXICAB ITALIANS, THE PROSECUTOR WILL DISCRETION IS USED EVERY DAY. THE TAXICAB MEDALLIONS, FARA ABUSE, LOAN APPLICATIONS, TAXES, HOW DID HE NOT HAVE TIME FOR A DIRTY DOSSIER? I WOULD LIKE THAT QUESTION ANSWERED. FROM RUSSIA.>>I THINK WHAT IS GOING TO SAY ON THAT, JOHN RATCLIFFE AND I WERE DISCUSSING IT OVER THE WEEKEND, I THINK WHAT HE’S GOING TO SAY, THAT IS NOT WHAT ROD ROSENSTEIN ASKED ME TO DO. I DID WHAT THE ACTING DOJ AGE HE ASKED ME TO DO, WHICH IS LOOK AT –DASH GO BACK TO ROD’S MEMO. WHAT DID RUSSIA DO IN 2016? THEN A SPECIFIC REFERENCE TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. I THINK THAT IS MUELLER’S OUT. HIS OUT ON WHEN DID YOU GO THERE WAS NO COLLUSION, WHEN WE INTERVIEW THE LAST WITNESS. SO MUELLER DOES NOT WANT TO COME. HE DOES NOT WANT TO COME BECAUSE HE DOES NOT WANT TO DEVIATE FROM HIS REPORT. WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO GET OUR THESE INCENDIARY QUESTIONS ABOUT OBSTRUCTION AND IMPEACHMENT. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LEARN ANYTHING THAT YOU DON’T ALREADY KNOW. IT’S JUST GOING TO BE GREAT FOR PEOPLE –>>Sean: HE’S GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME ANSWERING HOW HE HAD ONE CANDIDATE PAID FOR RUSSIAN LIES AND IT BECAME THE BASIS OF A FISA WARRANT. HOW DOES NOT BECOME AN INFLUENCE ON THE 2016 ELECTION? BUT TAXICAB MEDALLIONS DEAD? I WOULD LIKE AN ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION.>>HELP SOMEBODY CAN GET THAT ASKED AND ANSWERED IN 5 MINUTES. 5 MINUTES IS NOT MUCH TO UNLOCK THE MYSTERIES OF THE WORLD.>>Sean: BOB MUELLER’S NINE AND A HALF MINUTES WAS NOT EXACTLY STELLAR. I THINK THE ATTORNEY GENERAL GRACIOUSLY BAILED HIM OUT WITH A JOINT STATEMENT. THAT IS A GUESS ON MY PART.>>I HOPE I’M WRONG. I JUST DON’T THINK THIS IS GOING TO HELP ANYBODY FIGURE OUT WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON.>>Sean: I THINK YOU’RE PRETTY
