Audible gasps as Matthew Whitaker clashes with chairman


I’ve repeatedly tried to work with your
office first and delaying the hearing until February and then in providing you
our questions in advance I did this because executive branch’s own rules
governing assertion of privilege which were issued by President Reagan and have
been followed ever since say that ultimately it is up to the president to
decide whether or not he wants to assert executive privilege you cannot repeat
forever that the president might want to assert privilege I’ve given you a fair
opportunity to prepare for the hearing and to and to speak with the White House
in advance so that we could avoid this fight in the first place but you don’t
appear to have done any of that the department’s failure to do its due
diligence here to me is deeply troubling I do not believe that issuing a subpoena
here would correct the problem but I’m going to give you the opportunity to
rectify the situation after today’s hearing we will attempt to reach an
accommodation with the Department to obtain answers to these questions as
part of that process I ask for your commitment to return for a deposition
before this committee and the following in the coming weeks under oath with an
understanding that the transcript will be released to the public as soon as
practicable thereafter any questions that are unanswered today require
consultation with the White House will be asked again at that proceeding and I
expect either a clean answer or a proper assertion of privilege claimed by the
president I would ask members on both sides of the aisle to make those
questions clear for the record so we know what must be addressed at the
future proceeding now in your capacity as acting Attorney General have you ever
been asked to approve any request or action to be taken by the special
counsel mr. Chairman I see that your five minutes is up and so we-we-we I am me I’m here voluntarily we
have agreed to five minute rounds and committee I think that’s a fine place to
end the five-minute rule the committee will end will come to
order I will point out that we didn’t enforce
the five-minute rule on an attorney acting Attorney General Whittaker we
will I understand mr. Rao was just saying
there might be a good breaking born at that or you know the the Attorney
General was in the middle of saying something a question answer the question
please regular order should I ask the
questioning okay in your capacity yes question let me let me just repeat the
question so because so people remember what we’re talking about in your
capacity as acting Attorney General have you ever been asked to approve any
request or action to be taken by the special counsel mr. Chairman I as the
acting Attorney General I am under the special councils rules I am the person
that is ultimately in charge of the investigation and I have exercised that
authority under these special counsels regulations of the Department of
Justice’s so I assume the answer is yes your order mr. Hewitt I assume the
answer is yes you haven’t asked an approval request to action and you’ve
said yes or no Kevin in other words mr. Chairman I want to be
very clear about what you’re asking me are you asking me if I have asked a
special counsel to do something regular order mr. chairman well I’m I’m asking
if I think my words were clear enough have you ever been asked to approve any
request to actually be taken by the special counsel last week you commented
on the status of the investigation saying the stating it was close to being
completed on quote this was said despite the fact you recognized just moments
before that it was ongoing stating quote I really am NOT going to talk about an
open and ongoing investigation otherwise close quote so all I’m asking you is
have you been asked to approve or disapprove a request or action to be
taken by the special counsel point of order mr. chairman I’ve asked the
question of order when the water is not in order until the
question is and we’re not operating under the five-minute rule anymore that
point of what the witness will answer the question I want to be very specific
about this mr. chairman because I think it’s gonna rely a lot of fears that have
existed among this committee among the legislative branch largely and maybe
amongst some American people we have followed the special counsels
regulations to a tee there has been no event no decision that
has required me to take any action and I have not interfered in any way with the
special counsels investigation very good thank you my time is expired and they
recognized the ranking member the gentleman gentleman from Georgia mr.
Collins Thank You mr. chairman again it is playing out exactly as we
thought this is my colleagues across the aisle when we had questions about the
FBI’s operation in investigations it was those stay away we don’t wanna get close
to mauler in fact the Chairman even said you know we is it no longer okay to wait
for Robert Miller well it’s no longer right they got you in front of them
right now so get ready this is all this is gonna be DOJ oversight and it is
someone’s gonna say for a second there is some things interesting here that you
did torn out in your opening statement that they do need addressing I think
there’s a lot of things whether it be voting rights issues whether be civil
rights issues and other things and I get that but I’m also going to deal with
something that is directly under your oversight provision mister acting
Attorney General and we’re gonna talk about but something I’ve written a
letter about and believe I believe that lying before this body or anybody is
wrong especially under oath and that’s not the issue but the issue is tactics
and I question is were you aware of Roger stones indictment before it became
public congressman Oetzi as you know a
important question it is also mr. stone is part of an ongoing investigation but
I have again been briefed on the special counsels investigation that would have
been a you know that would been considered a development that I would
have been briefed on and I was briefed on that

  1. Nadler is.a.dip.shit and a liar. He needs to be booted from his position and arrested for his involvement in the attempted coup of our elected president.

  2. Thank you Nadler and CNN for helping to secure Trump for 2020. Hopefully there will be jailtime for our countries traitors. a HUUUUGE suck it to CNN. you are shameful!

  3. Nadler, remember your little petty power trip to Candice Owens about calling a member of your committee stupid? She didn't, you are stupid and your members are too stupid to listen to their own witnesses. You disgust me you hypocritical little quiff. Go home and let someone who isn't senile and brain dead do that job. Know when you've lost at the least. I know you're used to getting what you want your whole life but enough is enough.

  4. Nadler is such a lying creep. Don't know how those on the left can stand him. His lies are spread on the fake news organizations telling his lies every where he can.
    Come on people wake up to these lies that the democrock party are spreading they all know their probably going to jail soon and doing everything they can to cover up their part in so many scandles it is unbelievable.

  5. Nadler is the biggest fool in American politics. To assist him in preparing to impeach the POTUS he has called Michael Cohen and John Dean as witnesses. Are you kidding me? Oh, and he sent requests for a punch of administration people to appear. They are too close to the POTUS and the courts will grant the POTUS the right to Executive Privilege. You can't depose the POTUS's Director of Communications and Legal Counsel – and Nadler knows that.

  6. This guy is getting paid, for what? He needs to be out. Clearly BIASED. WTF. Americans aren’t dumb. You are sir. And we don’t want to pay your corrupt ass anymore. Moving on! Trump 2020. Yep, drain the SWAMP.

  7. White supremacist. Please mo e to Russia and tame your daddy Trump with you. These people realy dont cre about this country at all. Just keep the Republican line of bullshit going. 35 per cent are STUPID enough to beleive it

  8. Look over wimpy Nadler's skinny left shoulder: If you have ever wanted to see a female who totally depicts today's left wing, there you have it. Miserable…angry…unattractive…looks like she is about to have her fourth mental breakdown of the day. Hate's everyone with a passion who does not think like her , but spends most of her time calling everyone else a hater.

  10. "Lily's Nads" Nadler is the perfect driver for the clown car that hauls around the idiots of the Dumocratic Party. An impressive 5'4"" of nothing but a-hole!

  11. How can guys like Nadler ever get elected to high paying jobs?? he's the least charismatic politician I've seen since Nixon.

  12. Wife: You are a fool. Everyone made money from builder T*u*p for that lovely sea side project of his in the city. But not you. You had to oppose him. You are a schmuck. An idyot
    Noodler: How many times will you say the same thing?

    Stormy Daniels got $ 130000. may be a similar payment may soothe the ulcer in noodler's tummy?

  13. I live in Africa, Uganda to be specific. Is CNN a political party or a mainstream media aimed at character assassination which is all about criticising? I hope it's the perfect media in America.

  14. AMERICA, NADLER IS AMERICAS BIGGEST TROUBLE AS I SEE HIM AS A AMERICAN ENEMY AND YOU HAVE APPOINTED HIM TO BE A CHAIRMAN, HOW LONG AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL MAKE SAME MISTAKES APPOINTING GARBAGE TO LEAD YOUR COUNTRY BOY I'M GLAD I DO NOT LIVE IN AMERICA THANK GOD FOR TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS TRYING TO CLEAN THE BIG DEM'S MESS THAT HAVE BEEN POLLUTED BY THE DEMOCRATS DISASTER THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED ALL OVER AMERICAN CITIES , SAN FRANCISCO, LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, DETROIT ALL OVER WHY AMERICA IS VOTING DEMOCRATS POLLUTERS IN THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES IS A QUESTION ?

    MR. PRESIDENT TRUMP & ALL AMERICAN PEOPLE YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS , AS FAR I KNOW GOD IS IN CHARGE NO MATTER WHAT AMERICA DOING .

    BISHOP, JEFF KAZ

  15. I love the blatant double standard of the left. Democrats never answer a single question. However, Republicans are expected to obey all rules and answer every single question

  16. Apparently the word 'laughter' has been replaced by 'gasps' in CNN's SJW Newspeak Commemorative 'Woke' Edition Dictionary.

  17. I just need to point out to all you fake news and CNN sucks people, this is an actual video taken in Washington DC, it is fact, there is no denying this reality or calling it fake. It's real, not a TV show, ok? May God be more understanding of and forgiving of your willful ignorence and shortcomings. Also all you Republicans should look up Jesus, he was a liberal. I know you feel you own Christianity, far from it. Just thought I should be more like Jesus and forgive you all for being ignorence citizens. Used to be USA was #1, not anymore. Not with Trump clown and his people running roughshod over laws. Trump is an agent for Putin and Russia, believe it, it's documented. Get on the right side of history

  18. " They are a good team well coached and they gave us a good game. Now we are concentrating on next weeks game against the Jets"

  19. Fire Nadler people.

    He openly allows democrats and leftists to go over their time, make snide remarks etc while banging the gavel when a conservative does anything wrong.

    Whittaker just effing ROASTED this man. 😂😂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  20. The framers of our constitution didn’t design our government for people to hold office for a lifetime, they are supposed to serve and go on to what they were doing to make a living, that way they would serve the people and work for the people. Not for their ideals and grudges to hold their positions for life.

  21. As a non American….i would like to know how someone like Nadler is allowed to be a chairman of a committee let alone be a cogressman….what a fucking imbecile….

  22. These Congress men are educated idiots. If life is a matter of answering Yes or No, please let's not have any hearing. Supoena a robot as a witness would be a more intelligent approach.
