I -- joining us as always from his secret bunker location.
Via Skype -- -- -- -- cal.
Thank you are always like we're in the judge greater insights windows it's it's always nice and at least one of us at this table it's smog that's for sure.
-- -- -- you've got some thoughts on this as the -- just talking about the in the targeting all reporters and you know -- -- we now we hear it goes beyond via the Associated Press one of our own James Rosen targeted two in the in.
And having emails lieutenant center -- as an end.
Well that's a good question.
I think that's really up to the Obama administration which has been doing is targeting are bad enough that they've done a but there's -- reason the founders put.
The press freedom of the press in the First Amendment.
They wanted to -- this tension between the media -- mostly newspapers.
And the government they wanted the government to be held accountable they understood what -- Too much power to the government can do they can -- Jeremy can produce over totalitarianism in its extreme.
I agree with Gary Pruitt the president of the Associated Press is set up -- summation yesterday.
This could have a chilling effect that he would even further.
-- so that the actions of this administration could in fact be unconstitutional.
And they're thinking about perhaps legal action in court.
They haven't decided on that yet but.
But -- that the tendency of all administration not just this one.
Is to make as many things secret as possible stamp them confidential secret -- secrets because they don't want information getting out.
The job opening -- is to find out information that doesn't compromise the national security.
I want wishes that's outfits like the New York Times for example during the Bush Administration.
I think more sensitive to this sort of -- -- virtually created everything they could get their hands on with no legal redress.
But nevertheless this president's goals like I think targeting.
-- insurers and -- the Associated Press.
We'll have a chilling effect on their government official leaking information that the public needs -- I don't know what the argument is it simply no defense cal that did the argument that well every administration does it.
No I don't think it's our defense -- look at this peso would be with the -- these stories everybody now knows that the administration was getting ready to.
Releases information the very next -- after -- -- final meeting -- AG officials.
Clearly the administration wanted to make itself look good.
And didn't want to be Associated Press breaking this story the day before they intended to release of anyway so there I think you get the motivation.
And a dad and -- what -- -- -- -- you think we go with this -- clearly there's going to be a lot of pairings.
The a lot on the on that -- president Obama's voters will argue.
This is all politically -- motivated from being -- being motivated to.
The motivation being to damage Hillary Clinton a bubble.
The IRS -- -- Is the problem here that the Republicans.
Could overreach and it could just be com.
-- all at least have the appearance of being nothing more than a political witch hunt.
-- It is certainly overreach you know during the Clinton administration -- Bill Clinton and his sex scandals.
What you'd better stick to the policy you can't be just after the power after defeating.
Hillary Clinton -- you've got that stick with actually what went wrong.
Stick with the -- But the information take -- where -- wants to go.
In order to get a special prosecutor out of those.
You're going to have to have the Justice Department appoint what I believe I'm right about the -- and correct me if they narrowed the power but I doubt it.
I don't think that's going to happen -- -- the pressure is so so enormous.
That they're forced to do it so I think got to hear all of these congressional -- If I were finger I would go to combine all the investigations under one committee empower parents to.
The investigation instead of sporadic -- -- several I think that's good to.
And allowed an awful lot of people to get political and that it -- -- much that's what I do I would trumpet.
All right cal great to see -- village of governed by the way one of our -- -- writes in why do we get that -- -- from Cal's followed.
When he -- -- I think that's Dick Cheney in the room next door of no bunkers I just dropping and I could see it monitoring our own daughter -- -- All right -- -- it's great to see -- -- because he's on -- county news watch faux news Saturdays.
