“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters was on fire during Thursday’s segment over the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government hearings taking aim at intelligence agencies and the feds for targeting conservatives.

Watters railed over “corrupt” Democratic officeholders and bureaucrats never getting arrested. He contends that we just hold hearings and nothing ever happens, which is exactly how many feel out there.
He alluded to the testimony from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who noted that he received FBI “whistleblower disclosures” that claimed to have “voluminous evidence with the respect to potential criminal conduct” by Hunter Biden and President Biden’s brother, James Biden. Grassley contended the documents point toward the president knowing about his son’s business dealings and that he “may have been involved in some of them.”
“And no one’s even talking about it!” Watters declared, clearly frustrated. “You wanna know why? Because everybody already knows that! Everybody already knows all of this stuff! So, what is the endgame here?”
“We get screwed, then we have a hearing,” he continued, referring to Republicans. “Nothing happens. We get screwed again. We have a hearing. Nothing happens.”

Watters brought up FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was appointed by former President Trump after he fired James Comey. The termination was carried out very publicly by Trump after the FBI ran with the Russia collusion hoax.
“Trump gets elected,” he remarked. “What’s he gonna, go in there and fire Chris Wray? Last time anybody did that, he got impeached for it, he got a special counsel down his throat.”
“So, we have an FBI dictatorship here. You either fire him and die or you can’t touch him and you still die,” he noted, referring to Wray.
“I’m sick of these hearings. Make me feel better, guys. Tell me this is going somewhere. Can I throw someone in prison? Can someone go to jail, Can someone get fined?” Watters asked his colleagues.

Co-host Jeanine Pirro decried the loss of “an objective Department of Justice.
“We don’t have it!” Watters exploded. “They’re under investigation, we don’t have an objective anything anymore!
Co-host Jessica Tarlov, of course, tried to take the leftist path, raising the specter of the investigation by Special Counsel John Durham.
“Just very quickly,” she interjected. “You guys got the Durham investigation, which was supposed to blow the lid off…”
“Exactly!” Watters yelled, making his point.
“…and it ended up with nothing because there is nothing,” Tarlov claimed.
“Stop!” Watters shouted. “You guys admitted you planted the [Steele] dossier!”
“What?!” Tarlov responded.
“You admitted you framed him as a traitor and you want to investigate our investigation? We’re investigating the investigators!” Watters hotly claimed. “We’re investigating the investigators!”
Tarlov got frustrated when she couldn’t smear conservatives adequately during Watters’ tirade, “We don’t live in the same world. It’s just crazy.”
“Exactly, your world’s fake,” Watters quipped.
“My world is winning,” Tarlov childishly responded.
“We’re following the facts!” Watters informed her.
At the very beginning of the 118th Congress, House Republicans hit the ground running when we established the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
Today, the Subcommittee convened for the first time.

“We are winning,” Tarlov reiterated.
That just set Watters off more and he unloaded on Tarlov.
“You guys are corrupt. You robbed my vote!” he said, smiling.
Co-host Greg Gutfeld, who had been laughing during the entire exchange, proclaimed, “This is the best.”
“You voted in New York!” Tarlov said to Watters.
“What are you talking about?! Go to break! Judge, tell ’em to go to break!” Watters humorously concluded.
“Where am I?” Gutfeld said, laughing.
