Nugget of a segment tonight what will happen next as a situation Washington becomes even more chaotic.
-- -- Washington DC.
Fox's political analyst Charles Krauthammer.
So the next hearing -- -- a house committee on June 3 Monday.
On the IRS -- any prediction about that.
That the IRS scandal has a couple of ways to go.
It's clear that this -- -- is truly an irate when the president uses the word.
You know it is what we don't know how Ohio could go -- the only way you know -- -- it -- he still -- people lower.
So they expose people -- who in turn flip people aren't actually doing Watergate.
That's are -- due to the murder investigation.
Now the question is you know those special prosecutor.
Or do you do it in congress and I think any -- to a special prosecutor story.
We'll go away for six months because everybody is here I can't comment on going to the -- side there are -- -- Republicans are Smart.
They will recall our lowest -- You know the one who -- famously said you know I don't know I think I did nothing.
And then she took the fifth -- -- or use immunity.
In other words anything you say.
Can never be used against you and then she -- to testify.
There's there's no Fifth Amendment -- -- you get to perjury rap well then she's in deep trouble once you get use immunity.
You have to speak.
I he's -- so they have.
The senator has -- a -- that and and but the special prosecutor as we discussed earlier that has to be a presidential appointment correct.
It's not gonna happen because -- president won't do it it probably would be to the advantage of Republicans.
People who are truly outraged.
To have it happen in congress are not in the grand jury where you don't know what's going on how that come out.
In hearings where everybody could see everybody can he write that but I but I just wanted to clear the only person who can appoint a special prosecutors to present the United States.
Well essentially he's got a veto if he doesn't want it.
Second half but nobody else can do it I mean a committee couldn't do it or -- voting congress couldn't get it.
A special prosecutor's got to be you bill you don't -- my video into and out of what I owe Charles and you -- a special prosecutor and then I would and highways we have it we'd have this I would recuse myself click on psychiatric ground yeah.
You're not that crazy -- I don't care what anybody says.
So that we got a hearing next week on the IRS and and now I understand.
Then Ghazi documents have been subpoenaed by the State Department by congressman.
I set correct.
There's a lot more there.
They're clearly wise people call it turf war victories CIA.
And State Department over the worries.
Know -- turf -- and people are arguing over of this dominion over department over you know over authorities.
Over of power with no underlying issue.
Here the underlying issue.
All of the fights about the time component war provider who would take responsibility.
For the real scandal which president elect.
In not having security right for our whose fault -- that's -- the yard was about but I think there's a bigger story here he is a wind.
That will in time come out.
The biggest scandal of all.
The biggest question of -- what is the president doing he knows eight hours he had a routine meeting at 5 o'clock.
He'd never after a -- the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger.
Three never cause a great defense he never cause a -- of the joint chiefs he'd never caused CIA director who -- Karl.
About five hours any -- secretary of state.
And after the phone call.
She releases a statement.
Essentially about the video and how we denounce any intolerance it looks as if the only phone call.
Was to construct a -- story.
At a time when the last.
Two Americans who died were still alive.
And fighting for their lives.
There's this scandal and that I think it's got to be uncovered interest thing.
I had less than a minute left just -- resign is he done.
I think -- going to have to go because.
He's a liability of the president.
It's all about the president's all about is there's space under the bus where there are a lot of people.
He may have to get a second to -- in order to -- for everybody but -- member Obama said he endorses him a 100%.
And now he learns that he clearly.
Did not say the truth and he can't pretend.
That he didn't remember because he decides a lot of staff.
Because the release of the Department of Justice swears he didn't only sign.
The search warrant against erosion that essentially named him as a co defendant criminal co defendant.
He actually disgusted.
So we can't say like Hillary did OR -- sign a lot of stuff nobody I can't remember he did say that that he didn't do it.
An -- on -- he said he didn't do it right but he doesn't have the defense that Hillary did.
Prices title on the stuff I can't remember because he's the Department of Justice itself and I think he not only -- search warrant.
He discussed it right so he has no defense right now.
