Former fbi director james comey, slamming attorney general, william, boris friday, appearance on cbs news, tweeting out quote william barr on cbs offers no facts. An attorney general should not be echoing conspiracies conspiracy theories. He should gather facts and show them. That is what justice is about. This is the attorney general continues to push ahead into how us intelligence was used again ...
t an american campaign under the guise of the russia investigation. Here'S what attorney journal barr said during a recent cbs interview quote. I just think it has to be carefully looked at because he used to foreign intelligence capabilities and counterintelligence capabilities against an american political campaign. To me is unprecedented: it's a serious red linethat's been crossed. What was a process who had to approve it joining me now. Is former federal prosecutor doug burns doug your reaction to all of this? Those are serious words from the attorney general no question about it. This appears to be a serious issue. People have been saying that all along going well back the other side of the political spectrum, saying that's a smokescreen to divert from the very real mauler probe, but now the equations change that i know that sounds like a political soundbite.

For me, it's not it's a legal point. Okay, the president was cleared of this narrative that they created for over two years and now there's an investigation. What ifind fascinating to quote professor dershowitz, is what we call the shoe on the other foot test. So the very same people who were saying sunlight is the best disinfectant and the muller probe must be full and complete and exhaustive. Now just breathlessly piven say: oh, we should move on when their time is to look at the other side of the equation. No doug, then you have former cia director john brennan, he's definitely objecting to the president's decision to give william barra thority to declassify information to find out exactly what started what happened with the possible abuses during the trump russia probe. Well, that's my exact point liz. You know and you've just reiterated so here'sa man again a little out of my normal legal role. Perhaps who went on television over over and over to tell us that they're closing in it is a crime crime. That'S the keyword, they're gon na indict family members of the president. I believe he said that they already may have sealed indictments and now he just breathlessly pivots to the point you just made, which is that he's objecting to taking a close look at an issue. A mrs.

breathtaking hypocrisy, honestly,.
