On Wednesday morning Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke to Varney and Co. on the latest developments of the FISA memo and its release.
Judge Napolitano told FBN that FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the White House on Tuesday that they were concerned about the memo’s release.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was AWOL again.
Judge Napolitano: According to the Washington Post the president has not yet seen it. He’s going to see it this morning… So the FBI and DOJ do not want it out because they believe it reveals sources and methods of inquiring data, of inquiring intel. And they don’t think it can be effectively redacted. How do we know this? Because Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI, and Rod Rosenstein, the number two person of the DOJ, the chief operating officer of the DOJ… Where’s Jeff Sessions in all of this?… Spent about an hour-and-a-half with General Kelly the president’s chief of staff yesterday afternoon trying to persuade him of the potential dangers coming out.
