‘Hannity’ panel on the important questions Mueller needs to answer


>>Dan: WELCOME BACK TO THE SPECIAL EDITION OF “HANNITY.” “2020 ELECTION.” PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN JAPAN FOR THE G20. IF HE SAYS ANYTHING WE’LL BRING IT TO YOU LIVE THIS HOUR. SWITCHING GEARS, WE ARE HOLDING THOSE WHO ABUSE POWER ACCOUNTABLE, DEMOCRATS AND THE PARTNERS IN THE MEDIA MOB CONTINUE TO FUEL MORE MUELLER MANIA AND IMPEACHMENT FANTASIES. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.>>LET ME TELL YOU. WE NEED SOMEONE ON OUR STAGE WHEN IT COMES TO THE GENERAL ELECTION WHO KNOWS HOW TO RECOGNIZE A RAP SHEET WHEN THEY SEE IT AND PROSECUTE THE CASE.>>GOVERNOR INSLEE?>>THE BIGGEST THREAT TO THE SECURITY OF THE UNITED STATES IS DONALD TRUMP. [APPLAUSE]>>A PRESIDENT WHO FOUGHT TO OBSTRUCT THE INVESTIGATION IN THE INVASION OF OUR DEMOCRACY. WE MUST BEGIN IMPEACHMENT NOW SO THAT WE HAVE THE FACTS AND THE TRUTH AND WE FOLLOW THEM AS FAR AS THEY GO.>>Dan: IN THE TWO NIGHTS OF THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE THERE IS NOT ONE QUESTION ON THE DEEP STATE ON FISA ABUSE, OR USE OF THE SECRET INFORMANT TO SPY ON TEAM TRUMP. JOINING ME IS SARA CARTER, AND GREGG JARRETT, AND CONGRESSMAN ANDY BIGGS. GREGG, TO YOU FIRST. I THINK THE MUELLER APPEARANCE ON JULY 17 HAS POTENTIAL TO BLOW UP SPECTACULAR IN THE DEMOCRATS’ FACE.>>IT’S A BIG MISTAKE.>>Dan: HUGE MISTAKE. ONE OF THE REASONS IS MUELLER REPORT IS WRITTEN LIKE AN OP-ED, NOT A SERIOUS LEGAL DOCUMENT AND HE LEAVES A LOT OF THINGS OUT. ONE CONTACTS HE ELECTIONS IS A RUSSIAN CARVEOUT FOR MANAFORT. HE WAS A SOURCE FOR THE OBAMA STATE DEPARTMENT. INTERESTING POINT TO BRING UP. NO?>>YEAH. HE EITHER CONCEALED IT OR DELIBERATELY TRIED TO DECEIVE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. SAME THING WITH THE PROFESSOR MASOUD. HE IS NOT A RUSSIAN AGENT AT ALL AND HE WORKS FOR BRITISH GOVERNMENT PROBABLY. AND IN TURN THE AMERICANS AS WELL. HE TAKES JOHN DOWD’S TELEPHONE MESSAGE AND HE EDITS IT DOWN TO MISREPRESENT THAT. ANOTHER PLACE I FOUND HE COMPLETELY MISREPRESENTED AND INVENTED A CONVERSATION INVOLVING PAPADOPOULOS AND MASOUD. HE DOESN’T SOURCE IT. HE JUST MADE IT UP AND PLUCKED IT FROM HIS OWN IMAGINATION. SO THE REPORT IS FRANKLY DISAPPOINTING IN SO MANY WAYS. DISORGANIZED. CONTRADICTORY, INCONSISTENT. AND SO SCHIZOPHRENIC YOU WILL GET WHIPLASH. IT’S ALMOST A GARBAGE DOCUMENT LIKE THE DOSSIER. WHAT IS FRUSTRATING ABOUT IT MOST OF ALL ARE THE THINGS HE DOESN’T LOOK INTO. IF HE IS LOOKING INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE HOW CAN YOU NOT LOOK INTO HILLARY CLINTON PAYING FOR RUSSIAN MISINFORMATION.>>Dan: EXACTLY.>>TO INTERFERE IN THE ELECTION. THERE IS NONE OF THAT IN THERE. OR THE DOSSIER. THERE IS NOTHING IN THERE ABOUT ELTON ABOUT GLTON ABOUT GLEON ABOUT GLENN SIMPSON AND FUSION G.P.S., ALL OF THEM TRYING TO INTERFERE BY SPREADING RUSSIAN INFORMATION.>>Dan: SARA YOU HAVE BEEN ON THIS CASE LIKE WHITE ON RICE. ONE THING THAT BOTHERS ME IS THE INITIAL CHARTER WAS TO INVESTIGATE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE ELECTION. AND IT’S CONVENIENT HE GOES THROUGH THE MULTIPLE PAGES TO TALK ABOUT THE DON TRUMP JR. TOWER MEETING WITH THE RUSSIANS BUT HE FAILS TO MENTION THAT THE RUSSIAN LAWYER WAS WORKING FOR COMPANY HIRED BY HILLARY CLINTON. DON’T YOU THINK IT IS A KEY POINT TO BRING UP?>>IT’S A HUGE POINT. SO HERE YOU HAVE A NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA. SHE MEETS WITH GLENN SIMPSON OF FUSION GPS THE DAY BEFORE AND THE DAY AFTER. THE DAY AFTER THAT MEETING AND SIMPSON IS LIKE NO, WE DIDN’T DISCUSS THE TRUMP TOWER MEETING AT ALL. SO THESE ARE REALLY SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED. LET ME TELL YOU, DAN. THE BIGGEST POINT HERE IS WE HEAR RUMORS ABOUT WHAT ROBERT MUELLER WILL BE TESTIFYING ABOUT AND HOW THIS IS SIGNIFICANT ON THE PART OF THE DEMOCRATS. THIS IS TOTAL THEATER ON THE PART OF THE DEMOCRATS. BECAUSE THEY ARE CONTINUOUSLY, INCLUDING ANDREW McCABE, WHO HAS BEEN ON MSNBC OVER AND OVER AGAIN, WHO WAS BASICALLY THROWN OUT OF THE F.B.I. FOR LYING AND FIRED BY THEN ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS FOR BEING A LIAR. AND THE I.G. CAUGHT HIM LYING MULTIPLE TIMES AND LEAKING INFORMATION TO THE MEDIA. THIS IS HOW THEY ARE TRYING TO KEEP DISINFORMATION ALIVE. BY HOLDING A HEARING WHICH IS THEATRICAL. AND ROBERT MUELLER CAN’T GO OUTSIDE THE PURVIEW OF HIS REPORT. THERE IS QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED. AS YOU SAID I BELIEVE THE REPUBLICANS HAVE THE UPPER HAND HERE. THEY ASK HIM QUESTIONS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT, THAT HE CAN ANSWER. THERE ARE QUESTIONS THAT HE CAN’T. BUT THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE RUMOR ALIVE. IT’S A RUMOR AND IT’S A LIE. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING OTHERWISE THEY WOULD HAVE USED IT.>>Dan: THANKS TO PEOPLE LIKE YOU WE KNOW IT’S LIES. GREAT WORK. YOU, TOO, GREGG. CONGRESSMAN BIGGS, YOU ARE UP ON THE HILL. ARE THEY COMMITTED TO GET ANSWERS FROM BOB MUELLER? SOMETHING THAT BOTHERS ME IS NOT THAT HE LEAVES OUT THE $500,000 PATIENT TO BILL CLINTON, THAT IS NOT IN THERE. BUT ALSO ON THE EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE. TRUMP SAID HE WANTED HIM TO INVESTIGATE PEOPLE ON THE TEAM WHO MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED THIS, DOES IT SOUND OBSTRUCTION TO YOU? THAT IS NOT IN THE REPORT BY THE WAY.>>NO. IT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE OBSTRUCTION. IN FACT THERE WASN’T ANY OBSTRUCTION. MR. MUELLER KNEW IT BUT HIS TEAM WAS RADICALIZED. DON’T FORGET HE HAD A RADICAL TEAM THAT CONDUCTED THE INVESTIGATION. THEY COME OUT AND I DON’T KNOW ROBERT MUELLER FROM ADAM BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS THE REALITY IS MR. MUELLER PUT OUT A REPORT THAT IS NOT A LEGAL BRIEF. HE SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE IT AT ALL. BUT IT’S AN OPINION PIECE. THIS IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE THE HOPE HICKS INTERVIEW. YOU HAD THE DEMOCRATS READING OR ASKING HER TO READ. DIRECT QUOTES FROM THE MUELLER REPORT. HOPE HICKS SAY THAT WAS MY STATEMENT. THAT IS WHAT YOU WILL GET. GO TO MUELLER. YOU WON’T GET ANYTHING NEW FROM THE DEMOCRATS. NADLER SAID, CHAIRMAN NADLER ALREADY SAID HEY, WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE HIM JUST READ THINGS. THIS IS DESIGNED TO KEEP UP THEIR NARRATIVE OF SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED THAT THERE WAS AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, SOMEHOW JUST LIKE YOU HEARD IN THE DEBATE LAST NIGHT, SOMEHOW THE PRESIDENT IS GUILTY OF SOMETHING. THERE IS NOTHING HERE. THEY KNOW IT. THEY CAN’T GET HIM ON ANYTHING THAT IS CRIMINAL SO THEY WILL ATTACK AND TRY TO SULLY HIS NAME WITH THE CONSISTENT RUMORS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PUTTING OUT FROM DAY ONE.>>Dan: GREGG, ONE OF THE KEY QUESTIONS TO ASK BOB MUELLER IS WHEN EXACTLY DID YOU FIND OUT THIS COLLUSION WAS A HOAX? WEISSMAN, HIS PITBULL AS THEY CALL HIM, HE KNEW IN 2016 THAT THE DOSSIER HAD SERIOUS ISSUES. WHEN DID MUELLER FIND THAT OUT?>>WITHIN MONTHS OF HIS APPOINTMENT. MAY 17, 201. IN FACT, JOHN DOWD, THE PRESIDENT’S LAWYER PLACES IT AROUND NOVEMBER/DECEMBER OF 2017. THERE WAS A MEETING ON MARCH 5, 2018. A FULL YEAR BEFORE THE REPORT COMES OUT. IN WHICH ACCORDING TO DOWD, MUELLER ADMITS THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CRIMINAL EXPOSURE OVER COLLUSION. MR. MUELLER, WHY DIDN’T YOU ISSUE AN INTERIM REPORT? ISN’T IT TRUE YOU WANTED TO KEEP THIS GOING TO INFLUENCE UNDULY THE 2018 INTERIM ELECTIONS? SO THAT DEMOCRATS COULD TAKE OVER THE HOUSE? THAT IS A LEGITIMATE QUESTION TO ASK. ALSO, YOU KNOW, MUELLER INTERVIEWED WITH THE PRESIDENT THE DAY BEFORE HE TOOK THE JOB AS SPECIAL COUNSEL, SITTING IN THE OVAL OFFICE. ISN’T IT TRUE, MR. MUELLER, YOU AND THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY DISCUSSED THE REASON THAT COMEY WAS FIRED WHICH MAKES YOU A WITNESS IN OUR OWN CASE ON THE OBSTRUCTION INVESTIGATION?>>Dan: SARA IS THE CAVALECK IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT WHERE SHE MEETS WITH THE DOSSIER IN INTERVIEW AND THE INFORMATION IS ALL GARBAGE, IS THAT GOING TO COME INTO PLAY IN THE MUELLER HEARING? THAT INFORMATION SHE TOOK NOTES ON IT AND IT’S ALL DISCREDITED. DO YOU THINK IT COMES UP AT ALL?>>ABSOLUTELY. I THINK THE REPUBLICANS WILL SWOOP IN ON THAT AND ASK QUESTIONS ON THAT. THIS IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPORTANT. THOSE E-MAILS AND THOSE EXCHANGES AND VICTORIA NEWLAND WHERE THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND WHAT SHE KNEW ARE GOING TO COME UP BECAUSE AT THAT POINT IN TIME EVERYBODY KNEW. THEY QUESTIONED THE DOSSIER FED TO US BASICALLY BY A FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE OFFICER FROM MI-6, CHRISTOPHER STEELE, WHO TOOK A TON OF THIS INFORMATION FROM THE RUSSIANS. AND NOW WHAT WE’RE DISCOVERING IS PEOPLE LIKE JOSEPH MISTOV MAS IS PEOPLE LIKE JOSEPH MISTOV MAU IS PEOPLE LIKE JOSEPH MISTOV MAD WORKING WITH THEM AND SO WE NEED TO ASK JOHN BRENNAN. WHAT DID YOU KNOW? HOW WERE YOU INVOLVED IN THIS? WHERE DID THE INVESTIGATION BEGIN?>>Dan: BRENNAN IS IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE. THE GANG OF EIGHT BRIEFING HE GAVE, REMEMBER, THERE WERE NOTES ON THAT. THAT INFORMATION WAS ONLY FROM

  • OMG guys n gals.. It just hit me….. THEY WANT TO IMPEACH BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY CANNOT BEAT DONALD TRUMP IN 2020… Why didn't I realize this before?????

  • The democratic party is a threat to our democracy…national security and our constitutional rights shame on them for even trying to deceive people…we the people know the truth and will elect trump in 2020

  • Richard Coomer says:

    Is someone going to ask Mueller what gave him the impression that part of his task was to exonerate the President or not?

  • THIS is why Dems have been campaigning for months so they are able to continue pounding out their lies against POTUS, so when it comes time for them to bring out their real candidate, she'll be fresh and her TARGET WILL BE SOFTER. Or so they want to believe!

    Their are days, when I relish the thought of a Civil War!!

  • The Devils Playground says:

    It's the ''Deep State'' Morons Why don't the guys get a room and gangbang Sarah. Wait a minute none of the guys can get it up for anybody but Trump. Lmao

  • prepper state says:

    What a bunch of "Fake News" Idolators… These 20 or 30 Democratic Presidential Candidate (Demagogs) literally make me sick. Robert Mueller=Weissman very cleverly authored their lie filled report with self protective phrases. Such as the "Office" did not investigate the Russian Hacking – which was done by who the FBI? No, was it Crowdstrike, Threat Connect, Fidelis and Fireeye.. Isn't it Fireeye who has Hillary to speak at a Cyber Security Conference. All those companies and the FBI knows who hacked the Podesta/DNC/DCCC computers and the various election systems in various states. I know to and he's been sitting in jail since August 27th, 2016. An American who was acting on his own person interest to expose global elites and their warmongering, fuel and mineral mongering and how they are setting up the future tampering with digital election results. VOTER SUPPRESSION IS REAL and it's going on at our southern border right now – that's why DEMS aren't doing anything and they are plotting to rig future digital elections… THATS WHAT HTM3 (the Screaming EAGLE not some "Fancy Cozy" Bear) was exposing….. Why isn't anyone talking about this?

  • The Democrats are at war with American Values against the military and ex military its gonna be civil war they keep pushing WWG1WGA GOD BLESS GOD SPEED

  • Ted Cruz must ask him if he ever received any money from any business the Clinton's were involved in and did he receive any money for the Uranium One deal or was he involved in any part of the U1 transaction or sale?

  • wouldnt you want to know says:

    Why would the Democratic candidates talk about a Fox news conspiracy theory? Thats yalls bowl of nuts. Eaten by only the crazy Republicans.

  • If you are a taxpayer you do not accept help from the government. You
    accept the return of your investment. If you accept help you are either
    not paying tax or an illegal immigrant. Simple!

  • When I was a cop, if we did a tenth of what these people did, they would throw the book at us and throw away the key. My wife, a prosecutor, if she did anything like this, she would be in the same cell as me. I am so tiered of this double standard. What the dems did to the credibility to the FBI, CIA and the DOJ, it will take years to repair the damage. This has gone far to long. WTH are the dems doing with the border. Flip flop, babies always crying. Things must change, republicans need to grow a back bone and back the Commander in Chief. I lost jobs, and even have to move because I support the president. People must remember this, as a vet. when we took our oath it is for life. To defend the Republic and constitution of the USA from enemies foreign and domestic. We vets are getting pissed man, stop wasting our taxes on BS investigations because you lost an election. Grow up you sore losers.

  • Traveler2017 says:

    Mueller and Weissmann's testimony afterwards will be that of lies, criminal insinuations and innuendos masquerading as evidence. This will give Congress the "evidence" to start impeachment proceedings which can be drugout all the way to 2020 voting. Look for the Dems and MSM to ballyhoo to the world that Trump is now a proven criminal when the Weissmann fake poop hits the fan. It's all about 2020.

  • jacob edwards says:

    Yeah that five time combat veteran is lying but the five time draft dodging coward is telling the truth!

  • jacob edwards says:

    Jared Kushner's family won a 99 year lease for the World Trade Centers 3 months before planes flew in to those buildings.

  • Mary Milburn says:

    Poor guy. Mueller has the utmost respect and credibility and will be heard. Lies will not work against his word. Plus. He is a lifelong republican who was the top choice of republicans for special counsel. Facts. Not fox bullcrap. This cover up is sickening. Worse than Nixon.

  • Dusty Gallagher says:

    People in Congress have seldom ever been held accountable. How much in hush money has been paid to avoid prosecution/civil cases? How many charges have been dropped or classified as "a matter" ? It takes three signatures to have any person arrested. The overwhelming evidence and witnesses to the fact that Uranium One was a criminal act is mind numbing. The evidence that Obama's birth certificate is fake is credible and substantial. Fast and furious is well documented and criminal. High ranking military personnel, intelligence assets and certain politicians know well what happened at Benghazi. Trey Gowdy prosecuted NO ONE. Obviously, the criminals in Congress are insulated, too big to prosecute. Americans want to see the handcuffs used or find some useful info to report on.

  • Can we just hold them all in jail until our 2 yr investigation is complete? Jail them on independence day. Oh happy day!

  • Oh I will take credit for that! Thank you! Haha. Kavlaks notes were all a hoax to veer the narrative in another direction. Been saying that for months. Wasn't Kavlak loyal to newland and Clinton? Don't believe she would have EVA betrayed their trust. Nope. All set up.

  • Well Mueller doesn't work for govt anymore so he shouldn't say "can't say that because of ongoing investigation". I believe he will delay slowly and ask each inquirer what page they are referring to for their question…… then , after he takes 15 or 20 minutes to lick his skinny bony fingers to flip slowly thru pages, he will state "refer to page 601 for the answer" or read the answer and state "I have no other recollection other than what is stated on page 601" for each individual question. Delayed and irritating tactics. But I don't put anything passed this mafia thug boss. Nothing! He is a no good thug in a tie and suit. But I do want to see him squirm like a dirty worm. Hopefully our repubs, and any dems with an honest bone left in their body, will shine their balls before it starts.

  • Why did kamalas accent change in front of that crowd? She is such a chamillion! Surely this crowd can see thru this. She doesn't give a crap about her followers.

  • Christopher Tucker says:

    Muller was put there to cover bloody tracks and keep his buddies out of jail. First with the smoke screen, then distruction of justice, then the evidence.

  • If Mr. Mueller knew there was no obstruction, then Mueller just committed the biggest obstruction of justice crime the world has ever seen.

  • Douglas Palermo says:

    unfortunately ! i dont think the left will ever be held accountable! especially after they cheat trump out of re-election.

  • The Democrats are going insane with jealousy they cannot keep up with President Trump he is too productive and makes them look like the lazy asses they really are.. Lol.

  • I don't see how on earth Mueller is a good lawyer. He wins by straight bullying. He doesn't even sound intelligent at all. I sized him up, that scumbag is an intellectual dwarf. The evidence is clear.

  • Dan Bongino subscriber here. You were awesome on this show and you should have your own hour on Fox Dan! Love seeing you and would love to see more of you on Fox! ❤️🇺🇸💙

  • THANK GOD FOR FOX NEWS,
    CAUSE WITHOUT YALL THEY WOULD
    100% GET AWAY WITH ALL THESE SHINANAGANS…

    BUT FOX, REALIZE THEY ARE DEMONIZING YOU TOO.
    EVERYBODY I TALK TO , THEY SAY ,
    "YOUR DUMB YOU PROBABLY LISTEN TO FOX NEWS"
    THEY SAY FOX NEWS IS RACIST, AND THAT FOX ISNT
    REAL NEWS THEY ARE JUST COMMENTATOR..
    SO ITS A UP HILL BATTLE

  • Richard Bremler says:

    You forget that Senator Gerald Nadler wiil be conducting this hearing and is not going to give Republicans a chance to ask many questions in the four hour tiime frame.

  • Imagine what America is going to become like now that the Democrats know that they can do this and nothing will ever happen to them. I wonder how much longer before some of them decide to press the boundaries of whether or not they can get away with killing people instead of just framing them for a crime, committing blackmail, and saying nasty things about them non-stop, which doesn't always work.

  • Hannity had over a hundred pages of text, and phone conversations with Manafort, while Manafort was being prosecuted, and Trump was under investigation in a deeply intertwined case. Hannity then in near real time reported back, in detail the content and substance of those exchanges to Trump, giving him access to information he otherwise would never have had in such detail and timely manner, information nobody else had. 

    Trump was then able to use that co-conspirator aka Hannity provided information to aid him in his efforts to obstruct justice and in effect tamper with the jury pool.
    Fox should fire Hannity and a judge should lock him up.

  • Fred The Worst says:

    Because Bob Mueller is under the thumb of the Liberals guaranteed he won't answer any of the Republicans questions because he knows the whole investigation is flawed non credible completely biased with fake information guarantee he's going to say he can't comment or answer the question based on because of ongoing investigations or he's not going to be able to remember this or that just like Comey just plead the fifth not answer any of the questions that need to be answered because the whole reason the Russian hoax was started was simply to alter the outcome of the midterm elections

  • The Democrats deserve to have this backfire on them.
    The Democrats already know Mueller will add nothing…they just want the public attention in order to sow doubt about what they think the outcome of the report should have been. They want to convey a message that impeachment should have happened.
    The Republicans have a great opportunity here to show the Mueller investigation was started on the basis of a hoax…and the hoax was pulled off by people in the Obama administration. Republicans should not waste their 5 minutes by actually trying to get Mueller to admit anything (he will just say he was following Rosenstein's scope memo).

  • Katherine Chapman says:

    Why is it that nobody seems concerned about British interference in the election, or Mexican interference in the election, or European interference in the election, or Chinese interference in the election?

  • Michael Cariaga says:

    Why do you have a guest to answer questions….but spend the majority of the time speaking over your guest? That’s when I turn it off and watch Syd and Mackie riding their bicycles?!

  • All of these traitors need to ask this question, "ARE YOU A UNITED STATES CITIZEN". Where are your loyalties to this country?

  • Herbal Survivalist says:

    There are 4 words that would shut these dems down IMMEDIATELY, and drop their jaws…. "SHOW ME THE EVIDENCE"

  • Is Beto actually saying they wanna start impeaching Trump now so they can start investigating why they are impeaching him??!

  • jacob edwards says:

    The USA PATRIOT Act: Preserving Life and Liberty
    (Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism)
          Congress enacted the Patriot Act by overwhelming, bipartisan margins, arming law enforcement with new tools to detect and prevent terrorism: The USA Patriot Act was passed nearly unanimously by the Senate 98-1, and 357-66 in the House, with the support of members from across the political spectrum.
    The Act Improves Our Counter-Terrorism Efforts in Several Significant Ways:
    1. The Patriot Act allows investigators to use the tools that were already available to investigate organized crime and drug trafficking. Many of the tools the Act provides to law enforcement to fight terrorism have been used for decades to fight organized crime and drug dealers, and have been reviewed and approved by the courts. As Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) explained during the floor debate about the Act, "the FBI could get a wiretap to investigate the mafia, but they could not get one to investigate terrorists. To put it bluntly, that was crazy! What's good for the mob should be good for terrorists." (Cong. Rec., 10/25/01)

  • jacob edwards says:

    Allows law enforcement to use surveillance against more crimes of terror. Before the Patriot Act, courts could permit law enforcement to conduct electronic surveillance to investigate many ordinary, non-terrorism crimes, such as drug crimes, mail fraud, and passport fraud. Agents also could obtain wiretaps to investigate some, but not all, of the crimes that terrorists often commit. The Act enabled investigators to gather information when looking into the full range of terrorism-related crimes, including: chemical-weapons offenses, the use of weapons of mass destruction, killing Americans abroad, and terrorism financing.

  • jacob edwards says:

    Allows federal agents to follow sophisticated terrorists trained to evade detection. For years, law enforcement has been able to use "roving wiretaps" to investigate ordinary crimes, including drug offenses and racketeering. A roving wiretap can be authorized by a federal judge to apply to a particular suspect, rather than a particular phone or communications device. Because international terrorists are sophisticated and trained to thwart surveillance by rapidly changing locations and communication devices such as cell phones, the Act authorized agents to seek court permission to use the same techniques in national security investigations to track terrorists.

  • jacob edwards says:

    Allows federal agents to ask a court for an order to obtain business records in national security terrorism cases. Examining business records often provides the key that investigators are looking for to solve a wide range of crimes. Investigators might seek select records from hardware stores or chemical plants, for example, to find out who bought materials to make a bomb, or bank records to see who's sending money to terrorists. Law enforcement authorities have always been able to obtain business records in criminal cases through grand jury subpoenas, and continue to do so in national security cases where appropriate. These records were sought in criminal cases such as the investigation of the Zodiac gunman, where police suspected the gunman was inspired by a Scottish occult poet, and wanted to learn who had checked the poet's books out of the library. In national security cases where use of the grand jury process was not appropriate, investigators previously had limited tools at their disposal to obtain certain business records. Under the Patriot Act, the government can now ask a federal court (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court), if needed to aid an investigation, to order production of the same type of records available through grand jury subpoenas. This federal court, however, can issue these orders only after the government demonstrates the records concerned are sought for an authorized investigation to obtain foreign intelligence information not concerning a U.S. person or to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities, provided that such investigation of a U.S. person is not conducted solely on the basis of activities protected by the First Amendment.
