Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss CNN, Lanny Davis
According to Dhillon:
As a lawyer, I have to say I’m temporarily happy to know that lawyers are not the most despicable people here in the eyes of the public I think today based on these lies and their failure to admit what went on here. Everybody who is a reporter — I’m a former reporter before I became a lawyer — occasionally a source will burn you, okay, you got to correct it and move on. It’s part of their job and it happens. To not own it is really showing that we all have reason to doubt the sincerity of the stories they have out there. This is their corporate attitude to grossly misleading the public. It is bad news to the public, I think the public expects and deserves better.
He was creating demand for his wife’s consulting service, that’s an obvious conflict of interest, also a violation of the government’s rules not to disclose that. More portly for me as a civil libertarian, the fact that this was not disclosed to the FISA court is shocking and I think it’s obstruction of justice, quite frankly. Laura, I ran the numbers as of last year, 21 warrant had been denied by the FISA court out of over 40,000. That is 99.999% granted. The people at DOJ say, dont worry about this – there are safeguards in place. High levels of the FBI and DOJ have to sign off but it appears there is no oversight. They didn’t ask the obvious questions about this. It isn’t just about what happened to Carter Page. This seems to be a systemic issue with the DOJ and the FBI – creating stories. Terrible.
