Action of this breaking news story former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and for those that don't know you or a former prosecutor fifteen years in the Justice Department US attorney associate attorney general.
And assistant US attorneys are so that the they are claiming that they got a case of espionage cell.
They wanna find out where the leak came from so they -- not only James Rosen emails from his personal Gmail account they go through his phone records.
And you don't target him as quote an -- a better and co conspirator.
That is almost.
-- to have happen and I'm I can't imagine how you would.
Name a reporter as an unindicted co conspirator when all the reporter was doing with your job.
The reality is the obligation is on the government employee they take the oath of office.
They're the ones that have the obligation not to leak sensitive or classified information a reporter is supposed to ask questions.
It's the it's the government official that knows the obligations they have.
I can't imagine all the old expert who had -- -- -- -- -- never heard a bit of a reporter being named.
As an unindicted co conspirator.
Basically saying they commit -- criminal conduct I think mr.
Rosen should seriously consider a libel suit against the Justice Department I think they've.
Defamed him I think they defamed and unfairly.
I think this is totally outrageous behavior but you know it it was getting used to two -- three of these today you know I I look at the Justice Department.
-- I just saw the picture on television.
And I feel like the wheels -- coming off the Justice Department.
It it sounds to me like they just decided to have carte Blanche to just to spy on an issue they sure did admit though that there's no question that that that that they did.
You know I mean there's so many more surgical ways in which you can do this this is obviously an attempt to prying into his records and it's -- Fox's -- It's no different.
And what the IRS did in going after the conservative a conservative groups within he he knows he doesn't like fox.
Everybody in the just department knew exactly whose bidding they were doing.
And trying to go after fox what do you make of these new developments tonight they're going to have to -- -- hard -- not having anything to do with James Rosen at the Pentagon at the State Department.
The White House workspace and fox executives as if somehow they are I don't know if there's an Obama administration enemies list but it sure sounds like there is.
And that enemies list includes a Tea Party and includes patriot groups and obviously includes Fox News.
But the name this man has an and I -- -- co conspirator is totally unethical.
It is I think it's illegal.
Isn't the reason we need a free press Simon as a conservative why wanna free press -- to keep government power in check -- -- absolutely you know and their alliance here that are clear.
The press has every right to probe to push to ask questions it's a government official that has the obligation I don't know of this government official.
Violated his obligation or he did a trial will decide that.
But a reporter asking for information certainly shouldn't be named as an unindicted co conspirator you think it's a pattern.
Because they've they've had this ongoing war with the Fox News Channel.
And overall pattern what popular target on the back of how -- you -- the fact is a pattern here and it also we have the IRS going after.
Right wing groups as well it seems to me that the people in this administration got the signal from the top.
You know go after these people it's like murdering the good visual when Henry the second said -- -- of this metal some priest and I went out and kill Beckett.
What do you make of Lois -- gonna plead the fifth tomorrow.
Well I think now we can I say this is a criminal a matter she is taking the Fifth Amendment she's saying the answer might incriminate her.
That has to be a valid invocation.
Of of a of a privilege.
So the reality is that can't be used against her in a court of law but we certainly have the right to draw the inference that there's some criminality involved here otherwise she wouldn't take the Fifth Amendment.
We heard this but now been five separate stories.
That Jay Carney giving many of them that they knew nothing about it that they found this out in the press and we find out the president's attorney -- The president chief of staff knew about this but supposedly they didn't tell the president.
Well I think we should regard any statement for mr.
Carney yes like the first attempt.
And I never pay attention to it and then say well that's what you tomorrow the next in the day after and then maybe we'll find out the true no matter how long he's gonna last.
President has have a press secretary of the people trust I don't know how many more times he can misrepresent.
Hide the truth -- -- turn out to be wrong.
-- don't talk to him maybe shut out.
From from any information I don't know I would think that for his own credibility wanting information when it when you put together that the shift in Benghazi.
With the shifting story about who knew what when and that's -- changed five times.
What what do we what's emerging here what patter when you compare -- Ghazi.
Two when nobody know while the F a with a number of people know well I mean sorry but before you jump to any further conclusions certainly have an extremely incompetent administration.
Enough of everything else and that's the best they can get this story straight now when they have days of warning they can't get this story straight.
And the president finds out about the IRS investigation by reading the newspapers.
-- have a step for.
Now they're pretty what does the chief of -- do what what Baltimore Carolina and we wish you get rid of all them -- -- the newspaper's one other thing about low -- is gonna plead the fifth.
She originally did -- this story originally was that this came out spontaneously.
And then I had a -- -- -- -- planted question well I don't I mean I don't know exactly.
What the criminality is when you -- the crew the Fifth Amendment to join validly there has to be some concern you can be incriminating.
So now that people -- saying a week ago from some Republicans think this criminality here is somebody should be prosecuted.
Turns out -- think they're right there is criminality or otherwise she would be invoking the the Fifth Amendment it seems to me the one common thread.
Abuse of power and one other thing and this is not political for me.
As a conservative I want my government to be truthful.
I I think the families in -- -- need the truth I think conservative Tea Party groups deserve the truth.
I think we need the truth about why James Rosen was targeted -- I think the only thing -- -- save this.
And put everything we're on the right course of the president's got to explain all of us that it got to come from the president.
Exactly what did he know about -- -- where was he.
Why why why why weren't forces sent there as they as they should have been why why wasn't security -- in advance why did the IRS do this.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Which what you and I do some people don't we should be able to trust -- and now we've gotten the point where.
I can't imagine anybody gonna trust anything they -- the next day it turns out to be false -- like it all right it's up to him he has got to straighten this out right mr.
-- -- -- thank you for being was appreciate.
