emotional support ducks. that's all for tonight. "justice with judge jeanine" is next. watters and this is my world. [♪] judge jeanine: breaking tonight, andrew mccabe turns over notes he kept on president trump to robert mueller hours after mccabe is officially fired from the fbi. live tonight from los angeles, i'm jeanine pirro. we'll be talking about major developments in the department of justice with ke relationship mccarthy, governor mike huckabee, dan bongino, tomi lahren and more. just fired deputy fbi director andrew mccabe claims victim status. seeking to join the crooks who
feign innocence. claiming his downfall is the result of a series of attacks designed to undermine his credibility and reputation. andy, i don't know how to break this to you, but the on reason you are even in the news is because you are a liar. and when you lie under oath and to the fbi you are a wrongdoer, you are a cheat and offender. so are you a crook, too? jeb michael flynn who put his life on the line every day in the military lied to the fbi about something that wasn't even criminal, now he's a convicted felon. martha stewart lied to the fbi and she is a convicted if he lob who went to jail. so you lie to the fbi, the the inspector general and under oath, and you are given the
opportunity to take it back but you still lied. so they are crooked but you are not? you are in the news because the office of professional responsibility after the inspector general's investigation said you made unauthorized disclosured to the news media and you lacked candor. you lied about the clinton foundation investigation and leaked information to the "wall street journal" and "new york times" which you are not authorized to do. but we shouldn't be surprised. your boss james comey also leaked information to the "new york times" because he didn't have the guts to stand up and say what he wanted to say. you think you are being targeted? you are not that important. nobody is looking to bring you dune. but your wife gets $700,000 from the clinton cash machine and you handle the clinton foundation
investigation. we entrust you with the power of the greatest law enforcement agency in the nation, you it's to your political and financial advantage, and everyone knows that when you lied to the fbi it results in automatic dismissal. you claim your firing is part of and i effort to undermine the special counsel's investigation. the only russia investigation that should be going on should be the one with hillary and that whole gang for the sale of uranium to russia. but it will get worse for you when your sidekick peter strzok and his girlfriend are called on the carpet for their criminality. you lied about your relationship with strzok while you tried to affect the presidential primary and take down a duly elected president by starting a donald
trump-russia inquiry when the only ones who excluded with the russians was your girlfriend hillary and the cfius committee with the safe our uranium to russia and a payback to hillary. there were investigations and you were removed when the new fbi director saw evidence of your activities. while you threaten jim comey and threatened if you go down, everyone else will, jim comey writes a conciliatory tweet and says you served with distinction. he's clearly hoping you won't testify against him. this is a classic crime family takedown. who is going to rat on whom. if this were the movie "the
godfather," andrew mccabe is the enforcer. and peter strzok is the button man. it looks like strzok who signed the warrant application to the fisa court was a close friend of judge contreras who signed the warrant. the cover of a dinner party so the judge wouldn't be required to take himself off the case. even bob mueller enough enough to take strzok off his investigation because strzok was so dirty. mccabe you can complain all you want that you were unjustly fired. but the facts contradict that. you should have been fired a long time ago. you should lose your law lie even and you should have been -- law license and you should have been taken out in cuffs.
joining me now, gop house majority leader kevin mccarthy. thanks so much for being on "justice" tonight. what do you say regarding the fact that mccabe is fired and he lost his pension? >> welcome to california. i hope you are finding we are not all like the san francisco values, there are a lot of conservatives out here. judge jeanine: especially in kern county where i saw you last night. great republican county. >> you gave a great speech. one thing you have got to look at. i know a lot of democrats are trying to make this a political problem, but it's not. an independent, knob partisan unspector general found the information of mccabe lying. thought it was severe enough even before the final report came forward to send it to the fbi, send it to the ethics
department of the fbi, the office of professional responsibility. they are non-partisan independent. they look and they believe he should be fired, because everybody fbi agent i know, he or she believes in integrity. there are so many people they bring before the court they uphold because they lie. they did not want them to take down the fbi integrity by lying and going forward. oner one of the most of interesting things i have found post the firing what mccabe said. take his statement. if i was comey i would be worried. he said in there when he leaked to the wall street general that it was on the authority of the director and they knew they were doing this. that's direct opposite of what comey told congress in may 2017 when he was asked the question regarding a trump or clinton investigation, did you ever
authorize anybody to leak information, he said no, never. so we know that mccabe has lied by the independent inspector general found it. now he's saying about comey, comey may have lied as well. so i don't think this is the end of it. but that's why we need a second special counsel. i give chairman gowdy and goodlatte a lot of credit. think sent that letter to jeff sessions, he's looking at it. the inspector general does not have seen a power outside of the direction. so we need somebody to look at this not from the inside because you can't trust what's happening right now. judge jeanine: you know what's interesting, congressman, you have got jim comey gone, the director of the fbi, now you have the deputy director of the fbi, and i think it's just a matter of time. the amazing part of this is we have to wait for this stuff to hit the public record before anything happens in the swamp.
but it appears strzok and page are next, especially with the claim of their relationship with the judge who signed the fisa warrant that was based on unverified information. do you have any shotso thoughts on that -- do you have any thoughts on that? >> i want to give the judiciary committee a lot of credit. there is 1.2 million pieces of paper that deal "this subject. there is only 3,100 that has been sent to the judiciary committee and a lot of that was redacted. when we were talking about the fisa court judge that was the work of the committee member finding that because much of that was redacted. for five months they have been fighting to find that information. we are separate but coequal. congress is suppose to hold them
accountable. if they are withholding that information, i believe a lot more information will judge jeanine: you said 3,000 of 1.2 million? >> yes, there is only 3,100 pages of the 1.2 million that i know that have been sent to the judiciary and oversight. they went back over and found the other parts they couldn't see and pieced it together of what they were talking about, trying to get that small dinner party of six people, maybe try to influence this judge. if you know from all your work in the law. a fisa court is different from any other court. the way they went before this fisa court knowing hillary
clinton paid for this and the dnc and dossier, using that, but not telling the fisa court, just a footnote of why they want toad go forward and spy, steeler sayin --steele saying he did knw hillary clinton paid for it. that races a great deal of questions that have to be answered. judge jeanine: house majority leader kevin mccarthy, it seems like the swamp will be difficult to drain, but the draining has started. thank you so much for being on justice this evening. >> thanks very much for having me. and thanks for coming to california. you are always welcome to come back. judge jeanine: i want a view on all sides on this particular issue. here with me in los angeles, the
host of radio leslie marshall and dan bongino. the question for me is if mccabe is gone, and if mccabe seems to have contradicted what jim comey said under oath, saying he leaked with the permission of jim comey, do you think these two will be at odds with each other? >> i think they will. there are many on the left that don't have a problem with the firing. we have the problem with what happened sense subsequent to that. the president's vindictive-like tweet. and the president's attorney saying we got to get rid of this, fire mueller, get rid of the investigation. i'm speaking on behalf of the president, no, i'm not. judge jeanine: i don't know that
that makes any difference in terms of his being gone, what they are saying. he said he was targeted, his family's life was ruined because of the president. dan bongino what do you say to what leslie just said? >> leslie, i disagree. i think the world of you. but this is nonsense. donald trump and his family have been under relentless assault by the hard left and their political allies. they were spied on. they were under investigation for a crime you can't produce a scintilla of evidence even happened. now he takes some kinds of victory lap because he's getting justice? one more point on this. although not you specifically, a lot of those liberal blue checkmarks on social media, they want him fired tomorrow, they want him impeached.
they have no evidence to impeach him, but there is plenty of evidence about mccabe's misfeasance and they are upset about the firing. judge jeanine: dan, what do you think took so long? do you think strzok and page are next? >> i think they are afraid of what strzok, page and mccabe will say when they are released from the bureaucratic chains of the government. judge jeanine: do you think it's inevitable? >> i think with mckaibt was timing. you had mueller do what the president said he didn't want him to do, subpoena records of the personal business and trump family dealings. that's where part of the problem comes for me. those -- i do trust the a.g.'s
office but when the president is pick up the phone and saying you need to do this, then the timing before the retirement is sticking it to him. judge jeanine: if you are a member of the fbi, you deserve to get it stuck to you. what people from the fbi are saying mccabe was arrogant, he drove his porsche to work. he was on the 7th floor and he thought he was going to control the primary and presidential election. >> leslie, you and i are in the private sector. if nobody listened to our stuff, you and i would get fired. andy mccabe was the number two for three of the most of he normous apostles in u.s. history. they screwed up the flynn
case,ed the hillary case. but if you believe in big government, you have to believe in accountable big government. every american works. he screwed up and he lost his job for it. it's as simple as that. judge jeanine: dan, you were in law enforcement. do you think in the end these people are going start testifying against each other? i think mccabe has to be indicted. i don't think it's a question of wanting him to or not wanting him to. but if martha stewart gets indicted for lying to the fbi, and general flynn is indicted for lying about something that isn't criminal, mccabe has to be indicted to. >> where they are in a world of trouble will be the leaks. there were suspicious leaks to
david ignatius in january right before the flynn case started. these are criminal charges, releasing sensitive transcribed unmasked information to reporters. that flynn interview, remember those agents in that interview were pretty convinced flynn was being truthful. were those 302s changed? this is serious stuff. judge jeanine: leslie, what do you think about that, leslie? flynn, even people in the fbi think what he said was not intended to be a lie. >> quite frankly i'm not looking at the information that robert mueller is and he's the guy that has the power. i don't. and i trust him and i trust what he's doing, i say let this investigation play out. judge jeanine: if mueller got rid of strzok because he was that bad which is pro hillary
based on all their contributions, the fact mueller got rid of him tells me he's in deep deep trouble. >> i don't agree with that necessarily. even if there is collusion and prove of obstruction of justice. the republicans in congress won't impeach this guy. they don't have the guts. judge jeanine: maybe there isn't a basis. mike huckabee will join me later with some of the most of outrageous statements from the left. you know what's awesome? gig-speed internet.
let's give this guy gig- really? and these kids, and these guys, him, ah. oh hello. that lady, these houses! yes, yes and yes. and don't forget about them. uh huh, sure. still yes! xfinity delivers gig speed to more homes than anyone. now you can get it, too. welcome to the party. judge jeanine: more on the developing news out of washington. president trump just tweeting within the hour that the mueller probe should never have been started. no collusion says the president. here to talk about that, tomi lahren and ethan bierman. >> i think the president speaks for the american people. it's making the news with it should be the accomplishments of
this president. nobody cares about him. judge jeanine: what do you think? >> if a crime has been committed. conspiracy is underlying it. judge jeanine: collusion is not a crime, so why are all the democrats saying we are look for collusion. >> clielings an anti-trust crime only. but conspiracy is a criminal crime. judge jeanine: why aren't they talking about conspiracy? >> i do every time i come on here. judge jeanine: conspiracy is what hillary clinton did with uranium. >> why do they not talk about hillary the way we are talking about donald trump. judge jeanine: why don't they call barack obama and cfius, all the people who approved 20% of our uranium going to russia.
>> hillary clinton did not win. she is not president. you and i talked about the uranium one deal. the administrative procedures govern that. it wasn't just hillary or barack obama. judge jeanine: 7 of the 9 members of cfius are connected to the foundation. they need to be brought under oath and sworn to testify about their connections to the foundation. >> the cover-up for hillary, people say she didn't win, so why is there a problem. why are they trying to torpedo this president. how much money have we spent on the wrush investigation? >> not as much as he spent on travel to mar-a-lago. judge jeanine: don't even go there. >> don't bring up the expense
aspect of this then. there are credible allegations that robert mueller a republican is investigating. judge jeanine: after 15 months you can't find anything. >> investigations taking a long time. judge jeanine: when i was a d.a., in a year and a half if i had no evidence they would have thrown me out of office. >> the media is obsessed with the russia story. they will do anything they can to discredit this president. >> we have general flynn, an unregistered foreign agent operating. and paul manafort. judge jeanine: paul manafort was indicted for thinks that had nothing to do about the campaign. >> and papadopoulos. the buck stops here. it was his campaign. these people were working for him. judge jeanine: is that your
understanding of conspiracy? >> that's a different standard. but we don't know what the president knows yet. judge jeanine: tell them why we don't know? >> 15 months we can't figure it out. there is no smoking gun. they want to take this president out so badly. i would like to see more about benghazi, but that one was shut down. >> that was fully investigated by trey gowdy who came to a conclusion. judge jeanine: what evidence do you have? >> robert mueller is investigating. >> how much longer is this going to go? judge jeanine: in the city of leaks the one thing that's not leaked is that of trump conspiracy? when are we going to find out? >> we'll find out when mueller announces it.
we have california representative nunes leaking information about mccabe. judge jeanine: when did he leak information about mccabe he talked about what mccabe said in the hearing. mccabe has a right to speak as well. judge jeanine: let him speak. >> to me what i know will be brought up because the democrats are trying to talk about how the president hates the fbi. he's trying to drain the swamp where it need to be drained. obama's fbi is going after donald trump and he's sick of it and the american people are sick of it. we have not one shred of evidence. republicans are work hard day in and day out to put food on the table, we are wondering why we are still continuing with an investigation without any evidence. judge jeanine: the economy is
accountable. every one got to retire or stay on the job. this is the first time the american people are seeing some responsibility for someone who misled, didn't do his job, then changed his story when the administrations changed. judge jeanine: flynn lies to the fbi he's a felon. martha stewart goes to jail. this guy doesn't get his pension, really? nothing has been done like this. i'm convinced strzok and page are next and the whole thing will come tumbling down. you were on oversight reform. we talked about the fact it's so difficult that right now they only have 3,000 of the 1.5
million document they subpoenaed. first of all they don't have them. and how do you possibly get through them? >> it it's an amazing process. you word search, you tell them what you want. they identify the number, then they slowly go through them deciding what to redact. it's like trying to ask for the documents from the manhattan project. they do it with human beings and do it slowly. this is a problem congressional oversight has over republicans and democrats. they won't give you the raw documents. eric holder was held in contempt 7 years ago for withholding documents. he said there were 200. we just recently began getting additional documents and discovered he deliberately with hold a whole category of documents they are now going back through and identifying and
they will give to oversight. brian terry dies in 2011. we are still trying to get justice for this border patrolman's family. to bring up the president's trip to california. he wa -- he was looking at these wall fences. people like brian terry shouldn't die in the open. they are targets for the bad guys. judge jeanine: so much time, the excesses of this administration, the benefits, the regulations that have been reduced. the improvement in the economy, the unemployment at an all-time low. we have people who are criticizing this president, a fantasy about russian collusion. what do you say?
you are leaving congress. you announced you are not going to run again. but i'll get to that in a minute. your fellow colleagues are saying i know there is collusion, i know it but i haven't found it yet. >> if you spend this long look for something and you haven't gotten the first whiff of it, obviously you have to question why you are still look. i'm leaving congress after 18 years. but i'm an old reaganite. if you go back through hut. when reagan was putting tariffs on anti-dumping on foreign countries, there was a terrible, the sky is falling, we are becoming protectionists. now donald trump actually mirrors, it's now china primarily. he's beginning to look at sanctions against dumping into the market that's hurting
american companies and the same groups are saying it's all ending. they will tell you how great reagan was. but they forget to tell you many of the things reagan had to do during this administration are the same things donald trump is having to do. roll back regulations, stop the endless growth of government. make america safe for our people by increasing the military and unshacking creativity by putting business out front as heroes instead of villains. judge jeanine: we won't have enough time to ask why you are leaving so we'll save it for next time. congressman darrell issa, thank you. mike huckabee is standing by to talk about some of the most of outrageous things he and i heard this week. the governor is up next. i wanted to get new blinds, and i was talking with my mom

being fired. >> here is a guy who served admirably, and also, this whole narrative by republicans that mccabe and the fbi somehow was anti-trump is ridiculous. what he's accused of leak was detrimental to hillary clinton, the clinton foundation and the clinton campaign, just like comey's letter helped elect donald trump. do you fire a guy two days before his retirement because the president of the united states is applying pressure over twitter to do that? judge jeanine: that's just one of the most of outrageous things i heard this week. joining me, governor mike huckabee. morning joyce always good for my outrageous segment. he says andrew mckaibs an upstanding citizen who doesn't deserve to be fired. >> why wouldn't he deserve to be
fired if he lied to the fbi and he's part of the leadership of the fbi, of course he has to be fired. the fact that it's coming around the time of his retirement had nothing to do with anything. we shouldn't be on the hook as taxpayers for his retirement if he did what the inspector general said he did and the office of professional responsibility under kaitd he did. he ought to be worried about what happened to martha stewart and mike flynn. if i were mike flynn's lawyer i would go to court and say let my people go. why not, for heaven's sake. judge jeanine: mccabe lied about something having to do with a criminal investigation where mike flynn, his lie and many of them in that room in the
fbi thought he didn't lie, that the crime was not a part of the lie. but let's go on. jennifer palmieri, you remember her? she compares the trump white house to the godfather. i think we have some sound on this. >> you remember the scene from the godfather. we so often have to go back to the god far it. this administration for points of reference. but when they got rid of the you five heads of the other crime families in one swoop. i feel like the purging you see in the staff the last few days and week is about mueller and is about anxiety. judge jeanine: you know what's amazing about this? in my open, i talked about the crime family and that one being in the fbi. that 7th floor in the fbi building. what do you think of the crime
family comparison? >> what jeb for should have said is leave the gun, take the cannoli. she missed the whole point. the reason there have been various people leaving government, donald trump is a business guy. he's used putting people around him who are competent. and if the people around him aren't getting the job done, he lets them go. people in washington are dumbstruck that you would have somebody who would take seriously the role of chief executive and get rid of people who don't do their jobs. from the time we were in first grade we didn't get to go to recess if we didn't finish our coloring. donald trump looks at people around them and if they didn't finish their coloring on time, he'll say there is going to be a missed recess and the famous words he's notorious for,
judge jeanine: welcome back to "justice." joining me now republican strategist, attorney and committee woman for the rnc here in california. harmeet dhillon. we know a federal employee can be fired. but does andrew mccabe have any recourse. he's kick and screaming, but does he have recourse? >> most of public employees have the right to appeal. but unless he can show there is a violation of his constitutional rights, but i think he's out of luck. he doesn't lose his pension all together. he simply can't take it right away it's an exaggeration to say
he doesn't get it. judge jeanine: he isn't getting his pension now but he gets in 57. >> and he doesn't get to juice it because he gets to take it early. but he's not out of luck with the money he paid in. judge jeanine: general petraeus recused himself, he took himself off the case, now he's coming up with strzok and his girlfriend page's conversations, we should meet with him so nobody knows in a dinner party setting. where are your antennas going? >> this judge contreras is a judge on the fisa court. we don't know if he issued the
subpoenas for the wiretapping of carter page. but these two page and strzok are having conversations talking about ways they can have a social meeting with the fudge and they talk about ways they can cover it up. and they talk about the fact that the judge is close to strzok. surely knows strzok is in charge of foreign counter-intelligence at the fbi. they are talking about inviting other people for cover to make sure it doesn't like out of the ordinary. and to get close to the judge, but not so close the judge is forced to recuse himself. judge jeanine: they are recommending a dinner party so it doesn't look obvious they are talking to each other. this smells to high heaven. you have got one judge who is on the flynn case who takes himself off because he did something. he got caught in something. >> it's not clear he recused
himself. he took the plea december 1 and december 7 the court announced he has been recused. judge jeanine: that's even worse, someone took him off the case a week later. he's the same judge strzok is saying i can wheel and deal with him. >> and it involved other fbi people. they seem to have a willing group of people who would show up at a dinner party or cocktail party to get close to this judge they know is on the fisa court. they are talking about an insurance policy and texting how they hate the president. this is before the election. this is a deep game these people are playing. judge jeanine: we'll be right
judge jeanine: finally tonight, don't forget to me on facebook, follow me on twitter and instagram. you never have to miss justice. if you can't watch, set your dvr. if you can't wait till next week to see me i will be right here in la tomorrow on the next revolution with steve hilton at 9:00 p.m. i want to say happy st. patrick's day to all of you having a good time and for those
