Maria Bartiromo to Chairman Goodlatte: "Will Robert Mueller Interview Hillary Clinton?"

FNC's Maria Bartiromo asks House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte whether special counsel Mueller would be interested in speaking with Hillary Clinton: <blockquote>MARIA BARTIROMO: Here is what Senator Rand Paul said about all of this, this week on FOX News. Listen to this, Mr. Chairman: <A HREF="https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/07/20/sen_rand_paul_why_does_john_brennan_still_have_top_secret_security_clearance.html">SEN. RAND PAUL (R), KENTUCKY: The president sees the Mueller investigation, he sees all these accusations from partisan Democrats, Hillary Clinton, saying, oh, he colluded with the Russians, but then he also sees that the only people who actually we know colluded with the Russians were Hillary Clinton, who paid a British agent, who then paid Russians for information with this dossier. So he is -- feels like the intelligence community cooked up a political or partisan investigation. </a> BARTIROMO: Would Robert Mueller interview Hillary Clinton? REP. BOB GOODLATTE: Well, again, I can't speak for Robert Mueller. But I can very heartily agree with Senator Paul when he says that Democratic operatives related to the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the creation of the so-called Steele dossier, and then turned it over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But what's so unprecedented about this is that the FBI then took it, weaponized it, without ever verifying its credibility, and brought it to the FISA court without disclosing the source of that information. That is deeply troubling. And it is a part of the reason why the new FBI director has been hard at work trying to reform this organization, whose credibility has been damaged by a few key people. And, by the way, those few key people are the same people in both of these investigations, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, the FBI counsel, the chief of staff to the director, the same people in both these investigations. BARTIROMO: Yes. GOODLATTE: In one instance doing everything possible to avoid indicting Hillary Clinton, including allowing her chief aides to be in the room with her when she was interviewed by the FBI, creating a memo exonerating her before most of the witnesses, including Secretary Clinton, had been interviewed, not putting this before a grand jury, even though they had impaneled a grand jury in that investigation. They didn't let the grand jury determine whether she should be indicted, and then changing the language in the memo from gross negligence to extreme carelessness. Gross negligence very closely tracks the statute. Extreme carelessness is not a meaningful phrase. All to avoid indicting her. BARTIROMO: Yes. GOODLATTE: That is shocking. </blockquote> Full interview: <div style="position:relative; padding-bottom:56.25%; overflow:hidden;"><iframe src="https://content.jwplatform.com/players/zAmWhEah-EAYoNgFe.html" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" allowfullscreen style="position:absolute;"></iframe></div>
