RUSH TRANSCRIPT Matt Miller ░░░░░░░░ Frank thank you for ░░░░░░░░ time I m joined ░░░░░░░░ by congresswoman Maxine Waters ░░░░░░░░ of the house financial ░░░░░░░░ committee This is not ░░░░░░░░ purview of your specific ░░░░░░░░ but you obviously have ░░░░░░░░ feelings about both the ░░░░░░░░ of Justice how it ░░░░░░░░ conducted itself this president ░░░░░░░░ Your reaction to the ░░░░░░░░ that Mr Mueller objected ░░░░░░░░ writing to the characterization ░░░░░░░░ Mr Barr and asked ░░░░░░░░ to release those summaries ░░░░░░░░ none of that was ░░░░░░░░ Well first of all ░░░░░░░░ am so pleased that ░░░░░░░░ special counsel Mr Mueller ░░░░░░░░ only wrote a letter ░░░░░░░░ Mr Barr but he ░░░░░░░░ on the telephone and ░░░░░░░░ said to him that ░░░░░░░░ he had done did ░░░░░░░░ capture the context or ░░░░░░░░ substance or the nature ░░░░░░░░ his work And so ░░░░░░░░ that it has been ░░░░░░░░ it helps the American ░░░░░░░░ to know that this ░░░░░░░░ and all of those ░░░░░░░░ are lined up with ░░░░░░░░ president trying to protect ░░░░░░░░ have obstructed not only ░░░░░░░░ but obstructed Congress of ░░░░░░░░ United States of America ░░░░░░░░ is typical of what ░░░░░░░░ going on with this ░░░░░░░░ and this administration They ░░░░░░░░ everything that they can ░░░░░░░░ deny information about who ░░░░░░░░ president is and what ░░░░░░░░ has done He refused ░░░░░░░░ be interviewed He fired ░░░░░░░░ He has basically refused ░░░░░░░░ criticize Putin He has ░░░░░░░░ obstructed justice And in ░░░░░░░░ report what Mueller did ░░░░░░░░ he told Congress of ░░░░░░░░ United States I m ░░░░░░░░ exonerating him Here are ░░░░░░░░ facts Now it s ░░░░░░░░ to you to deal ░░░░░░░░ them Unfortunately we have ░░░░░░░░ dealt with it Well ░░░░░░░░ do you mean The ░░░░░░░░ has basically said Nancy ░░░░░░░░ said impeachment is not ░░░░░░░░ it You re now ░░░░░░░░ the midst of an ░░░░░░░░ fight Since I have ░░░░░░░░ here the president is ░░░░░░░░ Deutsche Bank which is ░░░░░░░░ subject of some of ░░░░░░░░ subpoenas to legally force ░░░░░░░░ not to comply with ░░░░░░░░ somewhat novel argument the ░░░░░░░░ s privacy the most ░░░░░░░░ person in the world ░░░░░░░░ being invaded by the ░░░░░░░░ you ve issued What ░░░░░░░░ you make of that ░░░░░░░░ the fact of the ░░░░░░░░ is the president said ░░░░░░░░ they would fight every ░░░░░░░░ They are brazen They ░░░░░░░░ disrespectful They are trying ░░░░░░░░ the best way that ░░░░░░░░ know how to stop ░░░░░░░░ Congress of the United ░░░░░░░░ from exercising its constitutional ░░░░░░░░ and responsibility We have ░░░░░░░░ responsibility for oversight and ░░░░░░░░ but he does not ░░░░░░░░ that As a matter ░░░░░░░░ fact it is absolutely ░░░░░░░░ obstruction of Congress now ░░░░░░░░ is not only the ░░░░░░░░ of justice that s ░░░░░░░░ in the report But ░░░░░░░░ they have said to ░░░░░░░░ is we re not ░░░░░░░░ to let you do ░░░░░░░░ job This is dangerous ░░░░░░░░ the presidency period It ░░░░░░░░ dangerous because the next ░░░░░░░░ s coming in If ░░░░░░░░ get away with this ░░░░░░░░ we have lost really ░░░░░░░░ a president should be ░░░░░░░░ about and what that ░░░░░░░░ represents When you use ░░░░░░░░ turn obstruction of Congress ░░░░░░░░ s a term used ░░░░░░░░ I m not mistaken ░░░░░░░░ articles of impeachment that ░░░░░░░░ issued against Richard Nixon ░░░░░░░░ he resigned They were ░░░░░░░░ not in the original ░░░░░░░░ Something somewhat similar in ░░░░░░░░ 11th article issued against ░░░░░░░░ Johnson about the way ░░░░░░░░ that president treated Congress ░░░░░░░░ that what you re ░░░░░░░░ to when you use ░░░░░░░░ term specifically Well everyone ░░░░░░░░ that I believe this ░░░░░░░░ should be impeached should ░░░░░░░░ been impeached I also ░░░░░░░░ that the polls are ░░░░░░░░ that we don t ░░░░░░░░ have the public with ░░░░░░░░ And that makes it ░░░░░░░░ difficult for the members ░░░░░░░░ Congress who are trying ░░░░░░░░ carry out their duties ░░░░░░░░ responsibility and responding to ░░░░░░░░ so we re now ░░░░░░░░ committees there are six ░░░░░░░░ with oversight responsibility and ░░░░░░░░ responsibilities We re going ░░░░░░░░ carry on with our ░░░░░░░░ with our oversight and ░░░░░░░░ our issuing of subpoenas ░░░░░░░░ they fight us in ░░░░░░░░ we re going to ░░░░░░░░ them back The president ░░░░░░░░ he was going to ░░░░░░░░ us tooth and nail ░░░░░░░░ re going to fight ░░░░░░░░ tooth and nail They ░░░░░░░░ t just get away ░░░░░░░░ this We ve got ░░░░░░░░ convince the public that ░░░░░░░░ man is irresponsible he ░░░░░░░░ dangerous with no respect ░░░░░░░░ the Constitution or the ░░░░░░░░ of the United States ░░░░░░░░ have to keep just ░░░░░░░░ at it Final question ░░░░░░░░ you and this is ░░░░░░░░ the fate of Bill ░░░░░░░░ Julian Castro tweeting he ░░░░░░░░ resign his position or ░░░░░░░░ an impeachment inquire himself ░░░░░░░░ What do you think ░░░░░░░░ that I think that ░░░░░░░░ correct I think that ░░░░░░░░ should resign If he ░░░░░░░░ not resign he should ░░░░░░░░ facing impeachment proceedings also ░░░░░░░░ has abdicated on his ░░░░░░░░ He s lied He ░░░░░░░░ used the very words ░░░░░░░░ right out of the ░░░░░░░░ s mouth no collusion ░░░░░░░░ collusion no collusion and ░░░░░░░░ a decision that despite ░░░░░░░░ the special counsel put ░░░░░░░░ that report about obstruction ░░░░░░░░ justice he said he ░░░░░░░░ the decision that he ░░░░░░░░ not obstructed justice It ░░░░░░░░ outrageous and he needs ░░░░░░░░ go All right Congresswoman ░░░░░░░░ Waters thank you so ░░░░░░░░ for your time tonight ░░░░░░░░ re welcome. Thank you.
