Jake Tapper Slams Pro-Trump GOP For Suggesting Second Special Counsel: ‘You Don’t Know What You Are Talking About’
CNN’s Jake Tapper invited GOP congressman Matt Gaetz to his show on Tuesday after House Republicans suggested having a second special counsel to target Donald Trump’s enemies.
“What crime are you suggesting might have taken place here?” Tapper asked.
“Well, here we see the potential collection of intelligence on the Trump campaign and we also see the misrepresentation of information before the FISA court which would violate woods procedures and something that we would absolutely want to get to the bottom of it and we’ve seen a number of personnel changes at the FBI and the Department of Justice that seem to indicate something is not right,” Gaetz said.
Tapper then slammed Gaetz for spreading statements he couldn’t reliably make without being on the intelligence committee.
“I have talked to people at the Justice Department who say you keep saying this and you don’t know what you are talking about,” Tapper said.
Gaetz then slammed Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein who have both prevented the Trump team from interfering in the investigation.
“I think Mr. Rod Rosenstein is deeply conflicted and that in many cases he is playing Jeff Sessions and I think Jeff Sessions is functionally set off into a corner at the Justice Department on these critical issues or a legal or factual basis for his recusal and I think it has hurt the country,” Gaetz claimed.
