5:01 pm
public. i hate that. in 17 years in the military, at the department of defense as a civilian and nasa and now at homeland security i have never been asked to lie. i have never been asked to perpetuate a lie, which is the same as lying. >> reporter: when we talked to schwab on wednesday, some three months after he quit, we were interrupted by a surprise. the men identified themselves as agents from the department of homeland security inspector general's office. >> no. we can't speak with. te why ar here? >> i can't speak with you about that, but if you give me your name and number, i can have our -- >> reporter: do you often come to people's home? >> yeah. it's part of my job. is th about the incident? >> are you going to call me? >> reporter: we're in his home, so i have every right to ask. >> we're talking to him. this is confidential, okay? do you want to talk to me? >> i'll talk to you. >> when can we talk? >> as soon as i contact my lawyer. >> you'll call me. >> reporter: do you have a card i can get from you? >> yeah. >> reporter: what was that
5:02 pm
about? >> they just said that they wanted to talk to me about the leak with the oakland mayor. they would like to have an interview with me about the oakland mayor's leak. >> reporter: were you surprised to see them? >> completely shocked, unexpected. >> reporter: did you ever contact the oakland mayor's office? >> no. i never met her before. i never contacted. >> reporter: you never e- mailed? >> i never e-mailed. i would never tell her. i would never tell anyone. they were very serious. he was very stern with me and it was concerning. >> reporter: you think that was an intimidation technique? >> absolutely, absolutely. why three months later are we doing this? this is intimidation and this is why people won't come out and speak against the government. >> cbs news correspondent jamie yuccas joins us now. this is so weird. you guys are there doing the interview and homeland security shows up. coincidental? did you reach out to i.c.e.? what did they tell you? >> we did reach out to i.c.e. and they disagree with schwab's
5:03 pm
claims that he was ordered to lie but do believe the oakland mayor's warnings helped target evade arrest. a group of bipartisan senators did call on the inspector general to investigate schwab's resignation and when we talked to the department of justice today, they said that would open up someone to come talk in his home. >> you're in his home with cameras rolling. it must have been just as much of a shock to see you. coincidence? >> what was interesting is when we first heard the knock at the door, i assumed amazon delivery, ups. i don't know. he had his family in his home. they wanted to come watch the interview and there were to support him. the family initially went down the stairs and all of a sudden the knocks got louder as they were approaching the stairs. the family members open up the door and start having a conversation. they say security is what i hear. i look at my producer with me and he said, "i think they said homeland security." that's when james you could tell felt really uncomfortable.
5:04 pm
he took the microphone off. he goes down the stairs. he has a little conversation before i go down the stairs and he starts saying what is this about? what is this about? they won't answer him. eventually they say it's about the oakland mayor. that's when i start trying to talk to them, but it was very confusing to everyone as to why they were there. we don't know if they knew if we were in the house or not. it was pretty wide open that he was going to start doing some media interviews. so we don't know if they were coming to talk to him about that, if it was about the open investigation or what the case may be. >> bottom line, he says i.c.e., homeland security, told him to lie. >> that's how he feels. he feels that once the department of justice and jeff sessions came out and said that specific phrase and then they never corrected it about the 800 criminals who are now on the street that they couldn't get, he said that that was not factually correct. they kept asking him to perpetuate that. he did not feel comfortable with that and it was the language and that's why he left. >> jamie, thank you for being
5:05 pm
here on set, appreciate it. >> more on jamie's reporting coming up on the cbs evening news. thanks. as for mayor schaaf, she described the knock on schwab's door as the sound of tyranny. >> the idea that the trump administration is continuing to intimidate and vilify good public servants, someone who has stood up for the simple idea that government should not lie, just offends everything i believe about government and democracy. but she >> the mayor says that no one from the justice department has come knocking on her door just yet, but she is "preparing for the worst." the decades long search for a bay area killer came to a violent end in the south bay today. police say they were closing in on the suspect in the 1974 beating death of a young woman inside the stanford chapel when he fatally shot himself at his san jose apartment. kpix5 reporter kiet do is there now.
