House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said whistleblowers in the DOJ are coming forward because they see that Attorney General Bill Barr is serious about investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. Meadows said that people need to go to jail and warned: "indictments are on their way."
Meadows said the investigation isn't just about the dossier, Fusion GPS, or the DNC, but also Clinton insider Sidney Blumenthal. Meadows said the Clinton operative tried to shop the infamous Steele dossier to news outlets and the FBI knew it before their first FISA warrant request.
"People need to go to jail. People need to be accountable and I believe indictments are on their way," Meadows said Wednesday night on FNC's 'Hannity.'
REP. MARK MEADOWS: We're getting a lot of whistleblowers, primarily the whistleblowers are coming forward because they believe Attorney General Bill Barr and [U.S. Attorney] John Durham are willing to get to the bottom of it. So people that perhaps were afraid under previous leadership to actually say, well, we knew this was wrong, they are coming forward now.
When we look at intelligence, we know the intelligence community shares a lot of information. What we also know, what Devin Nunes knows, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows and others who have been involved is that the Steele dossier, Christopher Steele, his dossier not only does it have its origins with Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, but other players who are connected. Sidney Blumenthal and they were shopping it to every media outlet they possibly could and the FBI knew it prior to the first FISA.
Here they are trying to use it as credible information for a FISA application? I just think that is totally wrong.
