Jesse Watters on Fox News said that Democrats are “running scared” and especially former FBI Director James Comey should be especially nervous after the damaging information from the FISA memo was released last Friday and Watters even tells Comey that he should “lawyer up.”
Watters said Democrats like Nunes’ committee’s number-two, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), “can’t address the facts [of the memo and purported use of the unverified Russia dossier] on the merits.”
“I don’t trust Schiff, he’s a proven liar and a leaker,” Watters said of the Burbank-area congressman. He is talking about the Donald Trump Jr. testimony that Schiff purposely leaked to the media which then blew up in his face when he got an important date wrong in his information.
Schiff has also said that this FISA memo that was pushed through by Nunes would compromise national security methods and that the memo was going to be tampered with to not show the whole picture; both of which have been found to be not true, Watters said.
Watters believes that Schiff is trying to force the president into redacting the memo so that he looks like he’s trying to obstruct justice and as though he is trying to hide things from the American people.
What Watters is sure of is that the president will probably make a decision on the case of national security and that Democrats are going to have to play games because they know the kind of abuse that went on in the FBI while it was under the Obama administration and Democrat rule.
He said Comey knew the unverified dossier was full of salacious and questionable information and that the ex-FBI boss even testified before Congress to that extent.
“Comey better lawyer up,” Watters said.
Watters said Comey broke the law by presenting the unverified dossier to a FISA judge to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a onetime Trump campaign adviser.
“Why did he deliver this unverified dossier to Donald Trump when he knew Hillary [Clinton] paid for it, but didn’t tell the president-elect [that] Hillary paid for it?” Watters asked, echoing sentiments made by former Reagan administration official Mark Levin on “Hannity” Monday.
“[Comey] maybe should stop writing his book and lawyer up,” Watters remarked.
