Lou Dobbs destroys SCOTUS rulings, says ‘deep state extends’ to high court

Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs ripped a string of SCOTUS rulings this week, saying it appears to him as though “the deep state extends, obviously, to the Supreme Court.”

In an interview with Just The News founder John Solomon on Thursday, Dobbs decried decisions in which the high court ruled 7-2 that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has a legal right to subpoena eight years’ worth of President Donald Trump’s business and tax records, though conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh pointed out afterward that the justices merely remanded the case to lower courts because they “did not take into account seriously enough the separation of powers,” meaning no tax records will be forthcoming before the election.

Also, justices narrowly affirmed that nearly half of all land in Oklahoma falls within the Muscogee (Creek) Indian Reservation.

But it was the tax decision that set Dobbs off.

“The deep state extends, obviously, to the Supreme Court,” he said. “These decisions today on making available to the DA of Manhattan, Cy Vance, a Left-winger in absolute coordination and orchestration with the radical Dems on Capitol Hill, can proceed with a subpoena of the accounting firm of the president and get his tax records, and the Supreme Court ruling at the same time, Congress cannot.

“I mean, who the hell do they think they’re kidding? They’re one in the same,” the host continued.

“They are some head-scratchers,” Solomon responded.

Interrupting, Dobbs then went on a profanity-laced tirade, blasting the Justice Department for allegedly dragging its feet on several investigations — presumably, those related to “Spygate” and the origins of the ‘Russian collusion’ investigation, which appears to have been a manufactured false narrative.

“Who the hell is this Justice Department to say it takes this long to do a damned investigation?” Dobbs said. “They have killed every investigation, they have killed every opportunity at getting to the truth, and we’re damned fools to put up with it, in my judgment.

The Russian probe is a criminal investigation that is being handled by U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut, who was assigned to look into the origins of the Obama-era narrative by Attorney General William Barr.

The AG warned in December he didn’t expect Durham to wrap up his probe for “quite a few months,” adding he did not give the federal prosecutor a timetable.

“Just based on my general knowledge of the things he’s looking at and has to look at in the future, I wouldn’t think that he’d be in a position for quite a few months,” he told Fox News.

This isn’t the first time that Dobbs has been critical of Barr and his DoJ. In February during another interview with Solomon, the Fox Business host said he had “serious questions” about the AG.

“No justice for Andrew McCabe, for the FBI officials who are corrupt to their bones,” Dobbs said after the Justice Department announced it would not pursue charges against fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to federal investigators.

“I have serious, serious questions about the integrity of the Justice Department under Attorney General Barr. I have serious questions, and I have to believe most Americans do right now,” he said.

In April, Barr commented on Durham’s probe, noting that he thinks some U.S. intelligence officials engaged in “troubling” and suggesting that the investigation would soon expose criminality.

He said Durham has uncovered more than simple “mistakes or sloppiness” made by intelligence and federal law enforcement personnel.

“He is looking to bring to justice people who were engaged in abuses if he can show that they were criminal violations,” Barr said, noting that Durham could also produce a report on his findings though that isn’t his primary objective.

The AG also hinted that the probe could continue for some time.

“So that’s what the focus is on. And as you know, being a lawyer, you, yourself, building these cases especially the sprawling case we have between us that went on for two or three years, it takes some time. It takes some time to build a case,” he told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

Barr provided another update on Durham’s investigation last month, telling Fox News he is “very troubled by what has been called to my attention so far.”

Earlier this week, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) lamented the time it is taking Durham to complete his investigation, questioning whether it will be complete before the November elections.
