And now we're learning the FBI deputy director may have misspoken about the stock exchange plot plot.
-- That was in the very initial stages of plotting to bomb the New York Stock Exchange would you say that this there.
Attention to blow up the New York Stock Exchange was a serious plot.
Or is this something that they kind of dreamed about you know talking among their -- I think the jury considered -- serious since they were all convicted.
Well it turns out there was no jury trial and the suspects cut deals for lesser charges what's called material support to a terrorist organization.
It was not connected to anything related to the New York Stock Exchange.
The FBI confirming.
That is deputy director misspoke but they are standing behind the substance of his statement that they believe the plot was the real deal -- The deputy director misspoke Catherine Herridge live on in Washington Catherine thank you to listen to -- the deputy director misspoke.
Of this entire thing that went on on Capitol Hill.
-- when fifty terror plots have been broken up we collect this data.
And it has saved lives the New York Stock Exchange may still be standing because we did this well are we sure this data made a difference well sir.
You should really ask the jurors who convicted him.
No jurors convicted them of anything.
And when they pleaded to charges.
And agreed yes this is what we did.
There wasn't one single mention of the New York Stock Exchange.
Judge Paula -- called -- out the next day on it we called him out that night on it.
And the centerpiece of his statement was the jury convicted them we save the stock exchange.
None of it was true.
And he misspoke.
On the centerpiece.
Of the argument the one example of the fifty that there -- holding up with a nation is this is why we collect this data.
And he misspoke.
At the very fundamental.
A level of what that the judge in the Paula Tonto.
When is enough going to be.
Well I don't know but I hope -- the American public -- they also I hope their business I've prayed their listeners I mean we we got a a vastly different view.
From the truth then we should have gotten we've got a questioner who.

Who was no more interest in and telling us the truth.
Then those answering the questions the deputy director of the FBI and general Alexander -- -- a Billy G was the question do you have the ability to listen to our phone calls and read our emails.
-- -- -- We do not have the authority.
Question asked and not answer so there should -- unbelievable unless the question error.
Was happy with that answer he should've followed up and said general that's not the question I put to you instead it was just ended right there with the impression the impression.
That they don't have the ability to do it.
Our colleague here we'll tell you what they have the ability to do what we also know from former NSA staffers -- communicated with Fox News that -- darn right do have the ability to do it.
Not the lawful authority but the practical -- what will the congressional record -- of the testimony to members of congress.
About what they've done with all of that data will -- congressional record still read.
Well you'll have to ask the jurors who convicted them about the plot to bomb the New York Stock Exchange.
Former New York Homeland Security advisor Michael bell Bologna is -- this as well on said.
It's one thing after another -- we are not building some conspiracy this is not 9/11 truth there's this is not birthers.
This is the people who represent us.
-- who congressman Roger -- Are asking questions and not demanding the correct answers and our employees.
Those who were testifying.
Before our representatives are telling untruths and it just kind of all well we miss spoke.
If they don't come back now and say -- Reappear come come next get them back at stake right now now the issue again because remember.
They're under subpoena they got to -- they're asked to testify they've got to give truthful testimony.
That that that is the rules of the game but you'll even more so -- would you brought -- the beginning of the of the piece about the contractors.
That one -- million contractors.
Who had access.
Think about it.
You they gotten to cut my contractor comes -- they lack the culture the context and don't want a career.
In the service they don't have the ability to truly understand how the into intelligence was created.
What that safeguards are and this -- the people we are in -- with this type of information.
It's really a lot of people and intelligence -- find to be actually outrageous that this many contractors are involved to this extent with intelligence -- -- sense -- -- one million contractors 3.5 million employees of the government all the deficits and look at the -- I tell you what down.
-- -- -- freaked out.
