Ingraham: Time for accountability


ACCOUNTABILITY. THAT’S THE FOCUS OF TONIGHT’S ANGLE. THE FALLOUT FROM THAT CALAMITOUS MUELLER TESTIMONY CONTINUE TO REVERBERATE TODAY AND THE QUESTIONS KEEP MOUNTING. HOW IS A MAN WHO’S OBVIOUSLY SO DETACHED FROM KEY ASPECTS OF THE CASE EVER ALLOWED TO RUN THE INVESTIGATION? WHY DIDN’T THEY AND MAKE THE INVESTIGATION WHEN THEY REALIZED THERE WAS NO COLLUSION OR CONSPIRACY TO HOW COULD MUELLER NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FUSION GPS? AND WHY WASN’T THE FISA COURT FULLY INFORMED ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THE DOSSIER? HOW DID TRUMP HATING PARTISANS MANAGE TO BECOME KEY PLAYERS ON MUELLER’S TEAM? WHY DO ELITES ALWAYS SEEM TO GET AWAY WITH THE ABUSE OF POWER WHEN CONSERVATIVES LIKE TRUMP ARE DRAGGED THROUGH THE MUD FOR SOMETHING HE DIDN’T EVEN DO? WELL, AS FOR THE LAST QUESTION, THE ELITES OF BOTH PARTIES, LET’S FACE IT, HAVE A LOT TO ANSWER FOR. IT’S UP TO US TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. THIS KIND OF THING DOESN’T HAPPEN EVER AGAIN TO ANY PRESIDENT OR FRANKLY ANY AMERICAN CITIZEN. SO THAT NO ONE IS SUBJECTED TO DEFAMATION OR SADDLED WITH MASSIVE LEGAL BILLS, OR HAS HIS OR HER ENTIRE LIFE’S WORK, IN THIS CASE, HIS ENTIRE PRESIDENCY, PUT IN JEOPARDY. THE FACT IS THE SO-CALLED ELITES HAVE BEEN FAILING US FOR DECADE DECADES. AND TRUMP, REMEMBER, CALLED THEM ALL OUT IN 2016. I DO NOT THINK THEY EVER FORGAVE HIM. ELITES HAVE BEEN WRONG ABOUT MAJOR HISTORY AUTHORING ISSUES. UNDER FORMER FED CHAIR ALAN GREENSPAN, THEY EVEN CALLED HIM THE MAESTRO. HE PRESIDED OVER THE HOUSING BUBBLE AND ALONG WITH BILL CLINTON HE THOUGHT IT WAS JUST PEACHY TO ALLOW CHINA INTO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION.>>PERMANENT NORMAL TRADE RELATIONS WITH CHINA WILL HAVE PROFOUND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE FREE WORLD’S TRADING SYSTEM AND THE LONG-TERM GROWTH POTENTIAL OF THE AMERICAN ECONOMY.>>Laura: REMEMBER, FOLKS, FROM THE BUSH YEARS COMPILE BEFORE IT’S? HE WAS THE ARCHITECT OF THE IRAQ WAR. HE ALSO GOT TRUMP WRONG TOO.>>IS THERE A REASON YOU’RE PICKING CLINTON OVER TRUMP?>>I FIND IT INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING WHEN THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO COME TOGETHER THAT WE HAVE TWO MAJOR PARTY CANDIDATES WHO ENJOY SO LITTLE CONFIDENCE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>Laura: [CACKLING] THAT’S FUNNY. CONFIDENCE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? ACCORDING TO A PEW RESEARCH POLL BY 2008, ONLY 38% OF THE COUNTRY THOUGHT THAT THE DECISION TO INVADE IRAQ WAS THE RIGHT DECISION. THAT HELPED ELECT BARACK OBAMA. AS FOR OBAMA, HE PLEDGED INTO BRING IN A NEW TEAM OF PRO-S, THE ELITE OF THE ELITE WHO WOULD SHOW EVERYONE HOW GOVERNANCE IS REALLY DONE. INSTEAD, HE BROUGHT US ANEMIC GROWTH, THE IRAN DEAL, AND AN OBAMACARE WEBSITE THAT DIDN’T EVEN WORK.>>DID YOU TRY SIGNING ON THE SITE YOURSELF? I HAVE CREATED AN ACCOUNT ON THE SIGHT. I HAVE NOT TRIED SIGNING UP BECAUSE I HAVE INSURANCE.>>WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT?>>CERTAINLY ARE SOME CHALLENGES THAT COULD BE SMOOTHER, COULD BE EASIER TO ACCESS, THAT’S REALLY WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON. NOBODY SAYS THE SITE IS WORKING THE WAY WE WANT IT TO.>>Laura: WAIT A SECOND. I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO BE THE SMARTEST PEOPLE EVER. AND YESTERDAY, WE WERE REMINDED THAT THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS SPEND $34 MILLION FOR AN INVESTIGATION THAT COULD’VE BEEN EASILY EASILY HANDLED BY THE REGULAR LINE PROSECUTORS AT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. AN INVESTIGATION LED BY A MAN WHO WAS CLEARLY PAST HIS PRIME, SO PAST HIS PRIME THAT HE DIDN’T EVEN BOTHER DOING A CONFLICT CHECK ON THE TEAM HE ASSEMBLED.>>ANDREW WEISSMANN ATTENDED HILLARY CLINTON’S ELECTION PARTY. DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE AFTER –>>I DON’T KNOW WHEN I FOUND THAT OUT.>>ARE YOU AWARE GENIE DEAN REP IS IN HILLARY CLINTON ORIGINATING FROM HILLARY CLINTON’S TIME FROM SECULAR STATE?>>DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE –>>NO.>>Laura: A FIRST-YEAR ASSOCIATE AT PRETTY MUCH ANY LAW FIRM KNOWS THAT THE MERE APPEARANCE OF BIAS OR CONFLICT IS OFTEN ENOUGH TO REQUIRE RECUSAL FROM ANY CASE. IN THE SITUATION, WITH THE STAKES SO HIGH, THIS WAS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE. BY THE WAY, EACH LAWYER ON MUELLER’S TEAM HAD AN AFFIRMATIVE LEGAL OBLIGATION UNDER THE ETHICS RULES TO CONSIDER THEIR OWN ANTI-TRUMP BIAS. TO DECLINE THE OFFER TO WORK ON THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION INVESTIGATION GIVEN THEIR PAST CONNECTIONS TO THE DEMOCRATS. MY FRIENDS, REPUBLICANS MUST HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE AND GET REAL ANSWERS AS TO WHY THIS TEAM WAS ALLOWED TO OPERATE OUTSIDE THE CODE OF PROFESSIONAL
