‘The Five’ breaks down DOJ’s criminal inquiry into Russia probe


PRESIDENT TRUMP REACTING TO THE DOJ REVIEW IN THE START OF THE RUSSIA PROBLEM. IT’S A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. IT GIVES U.S. ATTORNEY JOHN DURHAM THE POWER TO SUBPOENA WITNESSES AND EMPANEL GRAND JURY AND FILE CHARGES. DURHAM’S INVESTIGATION HAS EXPANDED BECAUSE OF NEW EVIDENCE. HE’S VERY INTERESTED IN TALKING TO FORMER OBAMA INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS JOHN BRENNAN AND JAMES CLAPPER. THE PRESIDENT WEIGHED IN EARLIER.>>LOOKS LIKE IT’S BECOMING SERIOUS FROM WHAT I’M HEARING. INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS. WHETHER IT’S STRZOK AND PAGE, WHETHER IT’S SLAPPER AND WHETHER IT’S COMEY AND ALL OF THESE PEOPLE, BECAUSE TERRIBLE THINGS WENT ON FOR OUR COUNTRY. AND WE HAVE A GREAT ATTORNEY GENERAL, HIGHLY PRESTIGIOUS MAN, A VERY HONORABLE MAN AND THEY’VE BEEN LOOKING AT IT FOR A LONG TIME. I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT IS HAPPENING. I WILL TELL YOU THIS. I THINK YOU’LL SEE A LOT OF REALLY BAD THINGS.>>Dana: GERALDO, IT’S A SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT. THE PRESIDENT IS GIVING THESE HINTS THAT HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN TOLD WHAT’S GOING ON.>>Geraldo: THAT IS A PROBABILITY. THE SUBSTANCE OF THE ANSWER IS THAT THERE’S SOME NIGHT SWEAT EPIDEMICS GOING ON IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESSING THIS FALSE NARRATIVE FOR OVER TWO YEARS, THE WHOLE RUSSIA HOAX. AT SOME POINT THEY HAD TO KNOW THERE WAS NO THERE THERE BUT THEY CARRIED ON. ISSUING ALL OF THESE SUBPOENAS, ALL OF THESE PERJURY TRAPS, WEARING HIDDEN MICROPHONES INTO MEETINGS WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND HIS STAFFERS. CREATING A CLIMATE OF TERROR IN THE WHITE HOUSE. ALL OF THIS FALSE, THE COLLUSION NARRATIVE, THE HOAX FOR OVER TWO YEARS AND $45 MILLION WE WERE LED DOWN THIS PATH. YOU KNOW, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA. IT BECAME A BAD JOKE HOW THE PRESIDENT MAINTAINS HIS SANITY THROUGHOUT THIS ORDEAL IS A GREAT MYSTERY. I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE THAT ENGINEERED THIS, THE PEOPLE THAT CRAFTED THIS HOAX, THE PEOPLE THAT DREW THE COUNTRY DOWN THIS — INTO OZ WILL AT SOME POINT HAVE TO PAY THE PIPER. I HAVE NO DOUBT.>>Dana: WAIT. DID SOMEONE WEAR A WIRE INSIDE THE OVAL OFFICE?>>Geraldo: ROD ROSENSTEIN SAID IT WAS A JOKE.>>Dana: WE’RE NOT SAYING THAT SOMEBODY WORE A WIRE –>>Geraldo: HOW DID THEY GET –>>Dana: I DON’T KNOW. I HAVE NEVER HEARD THAT SOMEBODY WORE A WIRE IN THE OVAL OFFICE.>>Geraldo: I STAND LITERALLY CORRECTED BUT MY POINT IS WELL-MADE.>>Dana: INDEED.>>Greg: THEY ENTRAPPED PEOPLE. THEY DID EVERYTHING.>>Dana: ROD ROSENSTEIN WAS JOKING WHEN HE SAID THAT.>>THAT’S HOW HE GET HIS RUFFLES TOGETHER. HOW ABOUT THE THREE OF GET MARRIED BUT I’M NOT. ROD ROSENSTEIN WAS DOING THAT, BUT NOW IT’S VERY INTERESTING BECAUSE I DON’T THINK HE WAS TRYING TO ENGAGE IN ANY SORT OF NEW MARITAL CONCOCTION. WHAT I AM SAYING IS THERE WERE FORCES WORKING AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND IT’S NOW LOOKING AS THOUGH SOME OF THESE THINGS AT ONE POINT IN OUR VERY RECENT PATH WE WOULD CALL CONSPIRACY THEORIES ARE BEARING OUT IN A WAY THAT IT’S HAPPENING SO QUICKLY WITH SUCH DEPTH AND BREADTH. IT’S HARD TO WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND. YOU UNDERSTAND THE FORCEFULNESS WITH WHICH THE PRESIDENT DEFENDS HIMSELF BECAUSE HE FEELS LIKE HE WAS UNFAIRLY PAINTED INTO A CORNER. SOMEONE REALLY WENT AFTER HIM. I APPRECIATE THE TENACITY WITH WHICH GERALDO DEFENDS HIM. I FEEL LIKE I’M NEXT TO JESSE.>>Dana: ROD ROSENSTEIN IS PART OF THE INVESTIGATION. THEY WANT TO TALK TO CLAPPER AND BRENNAN FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.>>Greg: DO YOU MIND IF I BASH THE MEDIA? I DON’T DO IT VERY OFTEN.>>Dana: FOR A CHANGE.>>Greg: I’M GOING TO TAKE A BREAK. OKAY. I LOVE HOW THE MEDIA IS SAYING, THIS INVESTIGATION TO THE RUSSIAN PROBE IS JUST ANOTHER CONSPIRACY THEORY. THEY MOCK THE REPUBLICANS FOR THIS CONSPIRACY THEORY. IT’S LIKE THE REAL HOUSE WIVES OF NEW JERSEY CALLING YOU TRASHY. THEY PICK THEORIES MORE THAN MIKE PUSHES PILLOWS. THEY KNOW THEY CAN’T WIN AN ELECTION SO THEY’RE LIKE THE STUPID KID THAT IS TERRIFIED OF FAILING A FINAL. SO WHAT DOES HE DO? HE CALLS IN A BOMB THREAT. THIS IS THEIR BOMB THREAT. THEIR WAY OF NOT FACING THE MUSIC. GOOD NEWS HERE, I THINK. I THINK THE TIDE IS TURNING AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS BECAUSE THE PROCESS IS SO OUT OF PROPORTION TO THE INFRACTION. THERE’S SO MUCH EFFORT TO PRODUCE SO LITTLE. REMINDS ME OF THE OSCARS. STARTS OUT INTERESTING. LIKE YOU WATCH THE OSCARS THE FIRST HALF AN HOUR IS GREAT. WHEN IT’S OVER, WHEN THE OSCARS ARE OVER, YOU ONLY REMEMBER ONE THING. HOW IT WENT ON TOO LONG, HOW BLOATED AND GROW — GROTESQUE IT WAS. THE LONGER IT GOES ON, THE MORE LIKELY THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WILL DETEST IT. YOU TREAT IT LIKE THE OSCARS, GET IT OVER.>>Dana: AND GO TO COMMERCIAL BREAK. NOT YET.>>THE DEMS HAVE A PROBLEM. THEY’RE TEEING UP — THE DOJ HAS LOST THEIR INDEPENDENCE. THEY’RE SAYING THIS IS POLITICAL REVENGE. AND WHEN I LOOK AT IT, THEY’RE AGAINST THE GOOD OLD BOY SYSTEM. I DON’T MEAN TO BASH GOVERNMENT WORKERS. JONATHAN DURHAM IS NOT ONE OF THOSE GUYS. DURHAM IS A GUY THAT HAS INVESTIGATED THEM BEFORE. INVESTIGATED THE CIA BEFORE. THIS IS A GUY THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR HOLDER, GOOD ENOUGH FOR TRUMP AS WELL. A GUY THAT HAS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. BUT HAS STAKED HIS CAREER AFTER GOING AFTER CORRUPTION.>>Dana: AND ON THE CIA, HE DECLINED –>>AND THE C.I.A. HAS LAWYERED UP.>>Dana: YEAH. THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION FOUND NO CRIMINAL WRONG DOING. WE HAVE SOMETHING ELSE. A BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT IS STILL RAGING. REPUBLICANS ARE DEMANDING THAT THE WHISTLE-BLOWER TESTIFY. NOW DEMOCRATS ARE REPORTEDLY CLAIM THAT HEARING FROM THE WHISTLE-BLOWER IS NO LONGER NECESSARY. COMES AS THE LEFT AND THE MEDIA CONTINUE TO MOCK AND ATTACK THE GOP AFTER THEY STORMED THE CLOSED-DOOR HEARING THIS WEEK.>>THIS LOOKED LIKE A KLAN GROUP OUTSIDE OF A JAIL TRYING TO GET THE SHERIFF TO LET THEM IN SO THEY CAN DELIVER THEIR OWN JUSTICE AGAINST SOMEBODY INSIDE. IT’S NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR OUR DEMOCRACY OR FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. IAOC IS JOINING IN, CALLING IT A LITTLE FLASH MOB OR ENTITLEMENT OF PRIVILEGE. GREG, THEY DID A STUNT, TRYING TO MAKE A POINT. THEY WON THE NEWS CYCLE FOR THE DAY. DID IT LOOK LIKE THE KLAN?>>Greg: HOW CAN IT BE A KLAN IF THERE’S NO DEMOCRATS? IT’S ALL REPUBLICANS. I SEEM TO REMEMBER THE KLAN WAS MADE UP OF DEMOCRATS. WHAT KILLS ME –>>THIS WAS RACIST. THIS WAS A RACIST — THAT MAN WAS A RACIST COMMENT.>>Greg: IT IS. I AGREED. WHAT I FIND INTERESTING GERALDO AND — WHEN FACED WITH REAL MOBS, CHASING PEOPLE OUT OF RESTAURANTS, HITTING TRUMP SUPPORTERS, IF YOU CALLED THEM THE MOB, THE MEDIA CALLED YOU RACIST. YOU WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO USE THE M WORD. THAT WAS TWO MONTHS AGO. NOW GUYS AND WOMEN, POLITICIANS, LAWMAKERS GO TO A MEETING AND THEY CALL IT A MOP OF WHITE PEOPLE. THE KLAN. SO YOU’RE RIGHT. I AGREE WITH YOU. YOU AGREE WITH ME. LET’S GET A DRINK.>>Geraldo: REPUBLICANS SHOULD BE MORE DIVERSE. YOU GET WHAT THE POINT IS. THE POINT IS THERE’S A LOT OF REPUBLICANS THAT FEEL THIS PROCESS IS GROTESQUELY UNFAIR. YOU KNOW, I — THEY SAY IT’S ABOUT PROCESS. IT IS ABOUT PROCESS. DUE PROCESS. THE PRESIDENT GETS DUE PROCESS. YOU CAN’T DO IT IN PRIVATE. YOU DIDN’T DO IT IN PRIVATE IN 98 OR IN 74 AND THEY CAN’T DO IT IN PRIVATE NOW. I SAY THE PRESIDENT SHOULD DO NOTHING TO COOPERATE UNLESS AND UNTIL THEY OPEN THE HEARINGS.>>Greg: YOU SHOULD BE HIS LATER.>>Geraldo: I FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THIS. TO KENNEDY’S POINT THAT I SOUND LIKE JESSE WATERS, WE SHOULD ALL BE OFFENDED THAT WE SANG THIS RUSSIA DANCE FOR 2 1/2 YEARS AND SPENT THIS MONEY FOR NOTHING. WHAT? THE STEELE DOSSIER? GOLDEN CHAIR? WHAT DID THEY BASE THIS ON IN.>>Dana: OH, BOY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.>>Greg: WHAT’S THAT?>>Dana: LIKE THE GOLDEN CORRAL. IT’S A WONDERFUL BUFFET. MY SISTER LOVES THAT RESTAURANT SO MUCH.>>SO DOES ANY GRANDMOTHER.>>Dana: THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE PUBLIC HEARINGS IN NOVEMBER.>>THIS IS A TIME FOR AMERICANS AND LAWMAKERS TO REEVALUATE THEIR PAST DECISIONS. EVERYBODY LOVED THE FISA COURT FOR SO LONG. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS RALLIED AROUND FOR THE FISA COURT AND LIBERTARIANS SAID DON’T TRUST IT.>>Dana: YES.>>ME AND YOU DISAGREE ON THAT. THERE’S NO DUE PROCESS. SO NOW WE HAVE INSTANCES WHERE AMERICANS ARE SPIED ON AND A SHAM INVESTIGATION AND THEY SAY AT LEAST WE GO A WARRANT FROM A FISA COURT.>>Dana: AND MICHAEL HOROWITZ, THE INSPECTOR GENERAL, SAYS IT’S WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS OR SO THAT WE’LL HAVE HIS REPORT THAT FOCUSES ONLY ON THE FBI’S ROLE.>>BUT NOW IT’S VERY INTERESTING. THERE’S REPUBLICANS THAT ARE CONVENIENTLY TALKING ABOUT THINGS LIKE THE DEEP STATE AND TALKING ABOUT THE SURVEILLANCE APPARATUS IN A WAY THAT THEY’RE OFFENDED BY BUT THEY ARE THE ONED THAT ALLOWED THE STATE TO GET THIS BLOATED. AND THEY REALIZE PEOPLE IN POWER, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SET A COUPLE OF TRAPS IN SECRET — THIS IS OPAQUE. WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS COURT WORKS. WE REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORKS. WHAT KIND OF OVERSIGHT THEY HAVE ONCE AN APPLICATION IS OKAYED AND YOU CAN –>>Dana: MAYBE THEY’LL CHANGE POLICIES –>>LIBERTARIANS HAVE BEEN BEGGING TO DO THAT FOR YEARS.>>Dana: WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE RESULTS ARE. MAYBE THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THIS PARTICULAR ONE. I DON’T THINK THAT MEANS THAT THE ENTIRE FISA COURT PROCESS OF WHICH HAS BEEN VERY USEFUL IN TERMS OF PROTECTING NATIONAL SECURITY SHOULD BE THROWN OUT.>>OPEN IT UP –>>AND WHERE IS THE FISA JUDGE?>>Geraldo: IF THE JUDGE WAS LIED TO –>>BRING THEM BACK IN.>>Geraldo: THAT’S WHAT THE INVESTIGATION BY THE I.G. WILL UNCOVER. I BET THEY DID WIRETAP THE TRUMP TOWER. I BET ALL OF THE PARANOIA WILL COME TRUE.>>Greg: HOW CONVENIENT IS IT NOW TO NEED THE WHISTLE-BLOWER ANYMORE? THE WHISTLE-BLOWER SHOWS UP, BLOWS HIS WHISTLE. SO WHAT THEY NEED IS THE WHISTLE-BLOWER TO FIND THE CRIME. NOW THEY HAVE THE CRIME, THE WHISTLE-BLOWER CAN LEAVE.>>Dana: HE WAS A FISA JUDGE.>>Greg: THAT’S WHO IT IS.

  1. he does not just feel he was treated in an unlawful shameful manner and probably a treasonous manner. when you try to carry out a failed coupe you had best expect consequences.

  2. The President keeps his sanity because he has a Plan, and he trusts the Plan, and the Plan is going according to Plan. "You are watching a carefully scripted movie. Enjoy the show!"

  3. Yes, most conspiracy theories turn out to be true. The first "conspiracy theory" was that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the only gunmen.

  4. OK…the "whistleblower" started all this….right? Or did he? Why, suddenly, does pencil neck say that he won't testify…that he isn't needed? Perhaps it's because, if this person was before Congress…in public….he would get some very interesting questions asked of him. I want to know who he or she is…I want to know if he or she had contact with Schiff or any of his partners before or immediately after he or she blew that whistle…..I want to know why it took 18 days from the time of the phone call to the time he or she made the complaint…I want to know who actually wrote the complaint…..I want to know who told the whistleblower about the call…I want to know if he or she has firsthand knowledge of anything….I want to know about any possible bias….and I want those questions and others asked and answered in a public hearing with the whistleblower under oath. Right now the whistleblower is a mystery witness…who may or may not even exist. Put him or her front and center….and let the chips fall where they may.

  5. The Holy Land where Jesus was born is occupied by an apartheid state of holy lies that is israel, a product of marxism that destroyed Christian Russia and Christian Europe. And Zionism that brought wars that stole the lives, lands of Palestinians, Syrians. Lied about Iran.
    It was Iran, Turkey and Russia who defeated ISIS.

  6. Blonde did not like where the conversation was going about RR wearing a wire, she adamantly tried to change the narrative. A bit later she asks GG to change the subject, very manipulative.

  7. Benghazi investigation was less open 'process'… telling though how silent usually leaky red members …have been about the 'content'

  8. What if there was no "Whistle Blower". And it was all made up just to create an illusion Trump did something wrong and start investigating until they create what they want.

  9. There were many Conservatives who were very critical of the FISA courts, not just Libertarians..

    The amount of blind trust in govmt agencies that are known to become easily corrupted under the most cautious and well thought out, division of powers, let alone with no real transparency or accountability to the people, was just way to much.

    Though many could see the benefits of such a court, the dangers far outweighed any potential benefit.

  10. Impeachment hoax mostly because Trump is exposing deep state corruption and their crimes against humanity. I fear what we are going to discover will rock our very souls

  11. This looked like a klan group?! The person who said that is an enemy of this country and to black people who specially. Scum

  12. I have had some disagreements with Geraldo over the years- That said- You NAILED IT GERALDO. Even the strong possibility of someone wearing a wire ! Journslists take notes: Geraldo just set the bar for you IF YOU DECIDE TO ACTUALLY BE A REAL JOURNALIST… Thanks Geraldo.
    The rest of you are pretty spot on. I haven't heard Juan chime in yet- so …I guess we will see if He is going to be a leftist or a Journalist. Hopefully the latter.
    To all who have made it hell on our president since even begore he took office…rot in hell ! The Patriots and True Americans are not putting up with any more of your sh!t !
    Wow ! Geraldo- You have it down, brother !! I'm proud of you !!
    As for the Dirty Republicans, Romney and the rest….SHAME ON YOU DIRT BAGS TOO !
    FBI – you need to watch closely which idiot in charge is going to make all of you look so crappy. I know there is a higher percentage of solid agents…You guys need to step up- expose the slime suckers and carry on that agency that is FOR THE PEOPLE. Protect our Nation- Thanks to those of you that cannot be compromised !
    Wulfy
    A pissed off war vetersn and "not taking it anymore" supporter of The U.S. Constitution and Our Commander in Chief!
    Let the man lead- you evil doers- or shut up and sit down before you face charges at a military tribunal for Treason !!
    Lastly, to General Flynn, thank you for your CONTINUED service to this Nation. Even when they did you dirty, Sir, You held your head high knowing you were innocent of their snares of wickedness !
    Now- Let's talk about Benghazi, HRC ! You need to pay for your lies and crimes ! I will NEVER FORGET…I HOPE NO ONE DOES.
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    ALL GAVE SOME
    SOME GAVE ALL

  13. The black dude did quite well filling in for Jesse. He brought up some very important points… where are these fisa judges? and to add, who reviews them??

  14. I am furious & curious why more people are not. This is not how it's done legally. The military should arrest them and put them in jail for treason. We can't let this set a precedent along the lines of proving your innocent.

  15. Hmm career reporters supposedly familiar with Washington, 1 worked in the WH … FMIH/K even an investigation REGARDLESS of who conducting if threads may involve National Security the President MUST be briefed and updated … unlike what Obama and Comey did even after Trump becoming President Elect … but they briefed Hillary

  16. They don't need a whistleblower or a quid pro quo, transparency, Mueller report or anything to remove a sitting president because Nancy numb nuts says.

  17. Have to say this THE IMPEACHMENT inquiry is diversionary … it’s a pig that can’t fly … it’s all about slowly down administrations agenda, winning, winning, winning … the “do nothing Democrats” have ZERO HR’s of any significance … there are Executive orders in place and real bills submitted for approval but the Democrats do nothing to move the process … wait for it the candidates and dems within 6 will months try to label 2020 President Trump as do nothing President Trump

  18. Is amazing how evil and powerful these DEMS are. We must not forget all those people not telling the truth at CNN, FBI, SDNY, NSA, Congress, CIA, Generals, ex bosses of the CIA, NSA and FBI, more Generals, ex Trump appointees, current Trump appointees, major city newspapers, small city newspapers, country town newspapers, radio jocks east to west, cowardly whistleblowers, retiring GOP politicians, lying prostitutes winning big money from Trump, ex New York Mayor (ooops..that was just foot in mouth), our beloved POTUS’s own foot in mouth, the Australian Ambassador in Europe, Trump appointed Ambassadors in Europe, the British Ambassador to us, the crooked British Intelligence Officers, Muller’s crooked team, those traitor GOP politicians, nasty people who made voice recordings of Trump (even his own lawyer), our POTUS releasing transcripts of himself saying crooked things…etc etc etc etc. Those DEMS are so powerful. Of course the honest folks at Fox care for us average citizens and will always tell us the truth.

  19. One fact they didn't mention about the FISA court was, They were lied to, how can a judge make a proper ruling with false information. Anyone would make a false judgement when not given the fact. I believe once the first person from this fiasco is indicted the domino's will fall. there is no honor in corruption.

  20. Exactly! Due process! I like that guy! These people, are elected representatives, Republicans or not they should have been in that room!

  21. Republicans should be more diverse ? So says Geraldo. You might ask WHY they are not more diverse. Not because of policy or message. Because of identity politics championed by dirty dems and media.

  22. Thanks for NOT having Juan on!!! It was very informative today!!! And also gave my MUTE button a much needed DAY OFF!!!!

  23. The United States is falling apart. For the intelligence community to openly tear itself apart. The beginning of the end of empire. Time to learn mandarin

  24. It is Trump's attorney Barr's probe timed for distraction. Taxpayers having to fork out a fortune for Barr to jet around the world hoping to dig up something he can use. Nothing will change the fact that Trump encouraged and welcomed Foreign help with his election and obstructed justice numerous times, as he is still doing. Now going to court to stop retracted grand jury testimony in the Mueller report being released to the house. Having lost in the first court he is now appealing. Just like with his financial records and tax returns.

  25. Some seem to think, I love to point out oddity pairings on
    television, and they would be right, yesterday, was the oddest sight ever to
    behold. Fox News Reporting, recently vacated by Shepard Smith, was hosted by
    seventy-two-year-old, Chris Wallace, with guest, retired general Jack Keane,
    who at seventy-six, managed to carve out a new career on television as a security
    analyst, now here’s where the oddity takes center stage, regardless of their
    advance ages, these guys appeared with out, between them, a single blade of
    gray hair, the only thing that would have been weirder, if their lips somehow
    was able to reflect the studio lights, otherwise, all is well in this age of ‘appearance
    journalism’…and of a seventy-three-year-old, American President, nicely dressed
    with orange tinted skin…
