MSNBC’s Chuck Todd asked why it even matters that the FBI used Hillary Clinton’s opposition research to spy on President Trump’s campaign during the election.
“Just because something is made by a political partisan or just because somebody sees evidence that scares them and suddenly they become biased against the individual they are investigating, how does that undermine the facts that they have found?” asked Chuck Todd to his guests GOP congressmen Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows.
“From a standpoint of facts, it may not.but from a standpoint of a warrant to actually spy on an American citizen. It is a no-no. You just don’t do that,” responded Meadows.
“There is evidence. Here is what we — not only in this memo, but when you look at the facts, everything revolves around a single source. A single source that continued to put it out with multiple people to appear that there were multiple sources. But — and in actuality it comes back to one particular paid operative,” said Meadows.
Todd went on to point out that he has not read the FISA application. “All three of us have a problem here. None of us have read the FISA application. I don’t have the information. I’m doing the best I can. You’re making allegations without any supporting evidence of the FISA application,” said Todd. “An officer of the court has an obligation to share critical information with the court. Four different occasions they did not share the fact that the DNC paid for the dossier,” responded Jordan.
