Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows: McCabe Lied Four Times, DOJ Needs To "Come Clean"


Congressmen Jordan and Meadows demanded access to DOJ documents regarding Andrew McCabe's firing; they share what details they found and react to AG Jeff Sessions deciding to appoint an internal inspector general instead of a second special counsel to investigate the FBI and DOJ, on FNC's 'The Ingraham Angle.'

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio explained: "[Fired FBI assistant director] Andrew McCabe, he didn't lie just once, he lied four times. He lied to James Comey, he lied to the office of professional responsibility, he lied twice under oath to the inspector general."

"Remember," he added. "This is Andrew McCabe, [fired] deputy director of the FBI, this is Andrew McCabe, the text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page talk about Andy's Office where they talked about an 'insurance policy' in case Donald Trump becomes President of the United States."

Rep. Mark Meadows of N.C. added: "Everybody is saying this is political in nature, when you read the report you see that it is not political because under oath, and certainly with the investigation, it was a real problem."

"We need to have this [second] special counsel," Meadows said. "I disagree with the Attorney General, and I can tell you tonight: I went through and reviewed some redacted things that were given to our committee, and in seven places there were twelve material facts --not just names-- that were omitted by the Department of Justice... You know, the news broke about the meeting that happened with [former Obama WH chief of staff] Dennis McDonough... That was redacted."

"It didn't stop there. When we look at multiple redactions that have taken place, this Department of Justice is not complying with the subpoena, and with the oversight responsibility we have in Congress. And so for the Attorney General to suggest that there is not enough there there [to appoint a second special counsel] is extremely disappointing," he added.

"Everyone in town knows we need a second special counsel to get to the bottom of this," Jordan said. "How can [the DOJ inspector general] investigate his own boss Rod Rosenstein, that's who he reports to. Mr. Rosenstein? We have to have a second special counsel, and I hope Mr. Sessions realizes that soon."
