Fox News Jesse Watters shared the same concern Saturday night that millions of Americans have now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finally wrapped up his investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia without a single indictment related to the initial charge.
What happens to those who set up this probe that cost taxpayers somewhere around $30 million?
“I feel like this delivers a knock-out blow to the press and Democrats who have been saying collusion, collusion, collusion the last two years,” Watters insisted. “When you couple that with a hot economy and the decimation of the ISIS caliphate, this is a two-term presidency. So the Democrats will have to start working with this president and not working against him.
“But, on the other hand, I’m pretty angry,” he continued. “Because the people that set this up, what’s going to happen to them? What is going to happen to the people who set this whole thing in motion, are they going to be accountable or not?”
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, part of a “Watter’s World” panel, pointed to the Steele dossier that has been largely discredited, which is at the center of the now completed probe.
“The real case, the FBI’s case was entirely based on this dossier — the dossier is the collusion scandal. That’s everything,” he said.
“Here’s the key question here, Jesse, when exactly did Muller find out there was no collusion?” he added. “Because this whole initial memo and his reason for existence was to investigate collusion. And that begs the question, what is that second scope memo that he got? What does that say? Because I think Mueller knew early on this thing was a big stinking pile of dog — you get it — it was a hoax.”
Watters then laid out who he believes are the real culprits, before asking Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla, if they are going to get away with it.
“Hillary [Clinton] paid for the dossier filled with Russian lies that gets laundered through the Justice Department and the FBI and through the State Department,” he said. “They buy this warrant to spy unconstitutionally on several campaign officials, they throw spies to infiltrate the campaign. And then, at the end of the day, once he takes over and during the transition, everybody starts leaking and unmasking everybody.”
“There are a lot of potential felonies that happened and abuse of power from the Obama Administration,” Watters then suggested. “Are they going to get away with it? Because it looks like potentially they might.”
Lost in the mix, largely because of a protective media, is that Barack Obama was in the White House when the whole sordid affair began.
“They were getting away with it under Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein,” Gaetz said, speaking of the former attorney general and deputy attorney general. “The hope is, with Bill Barr as the attorney general, there’s a new sheriff in town.
The congressman also noted that two dozen members of Congress have called on a special counsel to investigate the collusion that went on with the Clinton campaign, saying there was hundreds of thousands of dollars paid to the Clinton Foundation to influence policy.
