Miller -- his committee.
Have the right to know the information that you knew yes certainly -- This committee yes -- always going to -- that information this is the United States congress here that you're accountable to.
Ousted -- -- Stephen Miller grilled yesterday on capitol Haley denies misleading congress as you heard couldn't answer a simple question yes or no.
-- you heard that one from this administration before.
So how long -- every one associated with the White House denying knowing anything.
With me now Mississippi senator Roger Wicker.
Who joins us from Oxford senator thanks for being with us.
Glad to be with you judge all right senator at what point does this administration totally lose its credibility.
-- -- that may have already passed and and by the way I think humor your little tough on your mom.
Do I do a pretty good job.
Senator I thought I don't know me and I look forward to meeting you not say if I was gonna say Bob I mean no insult that what I think you could do a better job but thank you senator.
Bomb but look what right now what what we know is that.
The president is saying he's gonna let someone go with leaving anyway who wasn't there at the time the wrongdoing happened.
And now what he intends to do was have the person who wasn't charged run obamacare what's going on.
Well I'll tell you that the more we had hearings.
And the more we bring officials and put them under oath and they realize what the consequences are.
I'm not telling the truth the more information we'll get now we learned some things yesterday we didn't know we learn the mr.
Thinks there's nothing illegal he thinks it's regrettable he he's sorry that it occurred -- don't think it's illegal that's important that we know that.
We also learned yesterday.
That this goes to the highest levels of the Treasury Department.
These are not bureaucrats anymore these are Obama administration treasury officials we now know that.
And I think the chairman -- of the Ways and Means Committee is correct this just the beginning.
Of a series of opportunities.
For some members of congress on both sides of the -- they ask questions under oath and find out what the facts are next week there at least two hearings.
And I guess my question is going to be to our leadership.
Over on the senate side to Harry Reid.
Win is he going to allow.
There -- the only ones who can set a hearing when he's going allow them to hold hearings on this very issue to.
What we saw yesterday is an example of why it's -- who runs which party.
Each house of -- of the congress if the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi were in charge.
The United States house -- -- -- these hearings would not have been scheduling an obvious scheduled next week.
And of the public which deserves a right to know wouldn't be able to get amazing that you just.
The senator is there a possibility of having a special prosecutor investigate any of this will you be asking for that when you.
Conductor you're calling for hearings yourself.
You know I don't know that that's necessary.
-- I guess if if the entire hour.
Legislative branch would control about one party that might be something.
That we should look at been skeptical of the amount of resources that we -- wasted over time the amount of time it's taken.
To get the uses special prosecutors up and going in and they and they go way beyond their scope I think the the congress.
Under chairman camp under chairman I so I think they're doing a pretty good job.
But when they learned you know what -- -- sentiment -- all due respect nobody gets fired Charlene Alam was supposed to be.
Are removed then I hear she's up for a promotion on the -- -- I think in the Department of State.
No one gets there are no consequences.
Don't you feel like your hands are tied.
I don't think our hands are tied I think other people will be fired I mean this is the opening week.
Of really three major scandals.
And it -- frustrating at first but I really think we're gonna get to the bottom of this are right about senator -- thanks for being with us this evening we're gonna stay tuned to this one.
Thank you very much -- all right.
