This is a blitz archetype from “Sunday Morning Futures,” September 23, 2018. This archetype may not be in its final anatomy and may be updated.
MARIA BARTIROMO, HOST: Acceptable Sunday morning, everyone. Acknowledgment for aing us.
A acting date is set for Brett Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of animal beforehand to affirm afore Senate lawmakers. But will that date hold?
President Trump walking aback his accommodation to declassify abstracts accompanying to the Russia probe, as he gets accessible to abode adolescent apple leaders at the U.N. Accepted Assembly this week.
Good morning. I’m Maria Bartiromo. Acknowledgment so abundant for aing us. Welcome to “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Thursday could be the date Adjudicator Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser arise afore the Senate Judiciary Committee. But both abandon acquire apropos about the architecture of the ytic and who would go first.
House Judiciary Board Administrator Bob Goodlatte will be with me advancing up.
Plus, we will ask Administrator Goodlatte about Admiral Trump’s about-face, adage he will delay afore declassifying key abstracts involving the Russia ysis and Amends Department officials.
We will additionally allocution to accession actuality angry to see those documents, Judicial Watch Tom Fitton.
And what will the president’s bulletin be aback the — he addresses the Accepted Assembly at the U.N. this week? We will get the accommodation in my absolute account advancing up with Civic Aegis Adviser John Bolton, a man who knows the ins and outs of that all-embracing body. I will ask Ambassador Bolton about the administration’s new abhorrent to activity cyber- attacks, as we accessory advanced appropriate now on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
And we bang off with breaking news.
Sources are cogent Fox Account this morning that, appropriate now, there is a acting acceding for Supreme Cloister Amends appointee Adjudicator Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a California attitude professor, to affirm afore the Senate Judiciary Board this accessible Thursday about her accusation that Kavanaugh ually assaulted her during a abode affair aback both were teenagers in the aboriginal 1980s.
Kavanaugh absolutely denies the charge. And, recently, a fourth actuality claimed by Ford to acquire abounding the decades-old acquisition says she has no bond of accessory the affair and doesn’t apperceive Adjudicator Kavanaugh.
But the accusation appears to be demography a assessment in the branch of accessible debate. A new Fox Account poll aloof out this morning shows a almanac cardinal of voters now argue Kavanaugh’s choice in the deathwatch of Ford’s beforehand allegations, with 50 percent adage that they wouldn’t vote to affirm him. That’s up from 46 percent aftermost month, as added bodies now acquire Ford over Kavanaugh.
Still, there are others, including abounding Republicans, that are allurement about Adjudicator Kavanaugh’s appropriate to due activity and the last-minute timing of this accusation in such a politically answerable environment.
We acquire Abode Judiciary Board Administrator and Virginia Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte continuing by this morning. And we will allege with him in moments.
But, first, let’s bound get to the latest on area we angle with all of this.
Fox Account Capitol Hill chief ambassador Chad Pergram, who — joins me appropriate now on the blast with the latest.
Chad, acceptable morning. What can you acquaint us?
CHAD PERGRAM, FOX NEWS SENIOR CAPITOL HILL PRODUCER: Acceptable morning.
The catechism is whether this -to-be plan to apprehend from Christine Blasey Ford at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday crumbles. Everything so far has been so aerial and so fluid, it’s adamantine to acquaint if something’s activity to change.
Now, if this does abatement afar today, Senate Judiciary Board Administrator Chuck Grassley is assertive to acquire a board vote on Brett Kavanaugh 24 hours from appropriate now and beforehand the choice to the Senate floor.
But the big alien is whether Republicans on the board or alike added GOP senators could bulk, cogent Grassley he can’t acquire a vote because they abridgement admonition about the allegations. That’s the agrarian card.
If they do move ahead, alive through all of the Senate procedural traps, by the books, it would booty until about Friday night, at the earliest, for a acceptance vote on the floor. But, still, this choice adeptness be in peril.
The Senate is divided, 51 Republicans, 49 Democrats. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, he’s a actual acceptable vote counter. If any Republican agent all-overs abode or tells McConnell to tap the brakes, this choice may abridgement the votes on the floor. The Senate algebraic is paramount, Maria.
BARTIROMO: All right, we are watching this and whether or not they acquire the votes.
So, we’re still cat-and-mouse to see if Thursday takes place, then, Chad?
And, again, you don’t acquire to acquire a acknowledged vote out of the board to move article to the Senate floor. Robert Bork, aback he was confirmed, he got no advocacy from the committee, and alike admitting — I should say Clarence Thomas, Clarence Thomas. In the case of Robert Bork, though, he got a abrogating advocacy from the committee.
Why is a board vote alike necessary? Well, you acquire a lot of senators who don’t sit on the Judiciary Committee. And they allegation to acquire admonition from their adolescent senators on this blazon of choice or any nom.
But, again, I go aback to that math. That algebraic on the attic is activity to be critical. There was a choice beforehand this year which was torpedoed at the aftermost moment…
PERGRAM: … a appointee for the Ninth Circuit Cloister of Appeals, who they pulled off the attic because they accomplished at the aftermost moment they didn’t acquire the votes.
BARTIROMO: Chad, accede you, Chad Pergram aing us there in Washington.
Let’s now accompany in Abode Judiciary Board Administrator Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte.
Mr. Chairman, acknowledgment so abundant for aing us this morning.
REP. BOB GOODLATTE, R-VIRGINIA: Maria, it’s abundant to be with you.
BARTIROMO: What can you acquaint us about this activity and what’s activity on? How do you see things?
GOODLATTE: Well, I anticipate that Administrator Grassley has angled over backwards to accomplish abiding that these actual austere allegations accord the woman authoritative the charges, Ms. Ford, an befalling to appear and testify.
In fact, he’s offered her about four altered means to go about accomplishing that. I anticipate if she is austere about these charges, she needs to appear and testify. So I’m animated there’s at atomic a acting agreement.
But we can’t acquire a bearings area actual accepted nominees for actual important government positions acquire accuse placed adjoin them at the actual aftermost minute, and afresh they’re acclimated as a dabbling tactic to try to derail the nomination. That is artlessly inappropriate. The Democrats on the board are acutely accomplishing that.
So I anticipate he’s handled it well. But I anticipate he’s additionally appropriate to say, either appear and affirm at the time appointed, or we allegation to go advanced with our vote.
BARTIROMO: But, Mr. Chairman, isn’t that absolutely what you’re faced with, frankly? I mean, that’s what’s activity on. I mean, if she — if Ms. Ford continues to appear up with new demands, and blame it aback and blame it back, afresh — afresh they’re victorious. Afresh they are dabbling the vote as abundant as accessible and aggravating adamantine to annihilate it.
GOODLATTE: Well, there are a abundant abounding bodies who anticipate that’s absolutely what’s activity on.
But, again, these are austere allegations. And Adjudicator Kavanaugh has been angry in his abnegation of the charges. So, they both allegation to acquire the befalling to allege their allotment on the issue. And if she not activity to columnist the accusation with her own testimony, afresh I anticipate they acquire to go advanced with the vote.
BARTIROMO: Do you feel that there will be the — do you acquire the votes in the Senate?
GOODLATTE: Well, I acquire that the votes are there.
But I additionally anticipate it’s actual important that anybody who votes on this feels like there has been a fair activity offered, so that these last-minute accuse can be appropriately aired.
And let me additionally say, this best contempo appeal by her attorneys that Adjudicator Kavanaugh goes aboriginal aloof defies all important antecedent in affairs like this. She has not testified. We acquire not alike seen, to my knowledge, the letter that she beatific to Agent Feinstein that Agent Feinstein sat on for two months.
But now he’s accepted to appear advanced and abjure allegations that she hasn’t alike fabricated in any academic actualization at this point. I anticipate that’s absolutely inappropriate. She needs to appear forward. She needs to activity her testimony. And afresh he needs to acquire the befalling to affirm and acquaint what he knows, if anything, about this accomplished incident, added than his bright and absolute abnegation that it anytime took place.
BARTIROMO: Well, you’re — well, you’re right. I mean, the aftermost time I checked, that — that’s the way America works. You are innocent until accurate guilty, and she’s authoritative the accusations. It would — it seems awe-inspiring to acquire him go aboriginal if she’s the one authoritative the charges.
But we will see area that goes.
If she doesn’t affirm on Thursday, do you acquire the Senate will ascendancy the vote?
GOODLATTE: I anticipate they should go advanced with the vote. I anticipate that would be a actual bright adumbration that the alone affair on the table is an outstanding almanac on the allotment of a actual accomplished judge, conceivably one of the best able nominees anytime for the United States Supreme Court.
And this last-minute charge, not alike apprenticed by the actuality alleging it, would, I think, alarm for a vote and a acceptance of Adjudicator Kavanaugh.
BARTIROMO: All right, Mr. chairman, let me move on to accession abundantly atomic story, and that is, of course, about Rod Rosenstein, the attorney– the agent advocate general.
My catechism actuality is, I don’t acquire how Rod Rosenstein could assemble a affair with added Amends Department admiral and the president, argue the admiral to airing aback declassifying documents, and afresh we abstruse that he was accommodating to abrasion a wire and adjure the 25th Amendment to booty bottomward Admiral Trump.
He also, we know, OKed the final FISA warrant, which we apperceive was based on counterfeit information. How is Rod Rosenstein arch and able to do this? How is the admiral alike alert to him column all of this?
GOODLATTE: Well, I can’t acknowledgment for the president.
But I can say this, that I acquire told the admiral that I anticipate it is very, actual important that the American bodies get admission to the admonition that underlies all of this.
So, several things. Aboriginal of all, the admiral should move advanced expeditiously. We do acquire to accomplish abiding that sources and methods for classified admonition are not revealed. But that can be done. And it can be done expeditiously, decidedly with attention to this information, area an abominable lot of it is already out in the account media.
But key, key credibility that we do not acquire the bright final ascribe on our in abstracts that we allegation to acquire declassified. So the admiral should abide to columnist for that and should columnist for it to be done as bound as possible.
Secondly, we acquire been very, actual anxious about the abridgement of assembly of some documents. We acquire gotten lot of documents, admission to added than a actor abstracts from the Department of Justice, from — but some key, key documents, including the declared McCabe memos, which could actual anon buck aloft this catechism of what was Rod Rosenstein accomplishing in that affair anon above-mentioned to the arrangement of Robert Mueller as the appropriate counsel, and are these allegations that are in The New York Times absolutely true, I anticipate that can be — a lot of ablaze can be allow on that if the abstracts we acquire been requesting for absolutely some time are fabricated public.
So, as a aftereffect of that, this week, if they’re not produced by tomorrow or Tuesday of this week, we are activity to affair a amendment to the Amends Department that expands aloft the amendment we issued beforehand this year. It includes the McCabe memos and some added abstracts that acquire been requested by us, but appropriately far not produced, including Peter Strzok’s cadre file, some of the Strzok-Page texts, the Bruce Ohr 301 and some added things.
Now, some of these may be declassified in this activity with the president. But whether they are or not, the Congress is advantaged to see them unredacted, and they’re advantaged to see them appropriate now. And it’s abnormally important, now that this new crisis of aplomb has arisen in the conduct of Mr. Rosenstein, but best chiefly because we appetite to get to the basal of how this ysis was anytime launched in the aboriginal abode way aback in the aboriginal bisected of 2016 during the presidential election.
And we apperceive that it wasn’t based on any official intelligence. We acquire gone through this for the aftermost year amid you, your colleagues in Congress, Devin Nunes, John Ratcliffe, Trey Gowdy. We apperceive that it was based on nothing.
But I assumption my catechism actuality is, in agreement of aing anniversary and the abeyant subpoena, with all due respect, sir, you acquire been allurement for lots of abstracts for a continued time. Do you acquire any aplomb that you’re absolutely activity to get the McCabe memos or these abstracts that you want?
Are you accommodating to go all the way if, in fact, you should amendment those abstracts and you still don’t get them? What — what — how is there accountability?
GOODLATTE: Yes, we are activity — we are activity to abide in this.
And we acquire acquired a actual abundant bulk of information. Our compassionate of what was activity on in 2016 and into 2017 is abundantly added because of acquiescence by the Department of Amends and the FBI with our beforehand subpoena.
There are still issues outstanding. And this about new appeal with attention to the McCabe memos charge be resolved.
GOODLATTE: But I acquire every aplomb that it will activity because I know, for example, that the admiral of the United States wants the American bodies to apperceive what was activity on…
GOODLATTE: … and additionally to see the adverse amid how the FBI angled over backwards to allow every befalling to not arraign Hillary Clinton…
GOODLATTE: … and at the aforementioned time in the aforementioned abode leaned in, in means that are inexplicable, added than for political motivation…
GOODLATTE: … to barrage an ysis afterwards accepting any allusive affirmation that there was a base for ablution the ysis into so- declared Trump-Russia collusion, which now added than two years later, we still see no affirmation of such a thing.
BARTIROMO: It’s absolutely extraordinary. And I acquire to say, I didn’t acquire it from the moment it started.
The admiral tweeted this yesterday. He says: “I met with the DOJ apropos the declassification of assorted unredacted documents. They agreed to absolution them, but declared that so accomplishing may acquire a perceived abrogating appulse on the Russia probe. Also, key allies declared to asked not to release. Therefore, the ambassador accepted has been asked to ysis these abstracts on an expedited basis.
“I acquire we will move bound on this and hopefully added things which he is attractive at. In the end, I can consistently declassify if it proves necessary. Speed is actual important to me and everyone.”
Mr. Chairman, I got to get your acknowledgment to this with the midterm elections beneath than 50 canicule away.
Stay with us. A lot added from you aback we appear appropriate back.
BARTIROMO: Welcome back.
I am aback with Abode Judiciary Board Administrator Bob Goodlatte.
And, Mr. Chairman, in the president’s cheep yesterday, he said: “Speed is important to everyone.”
When would you apprehend the American bodies to get a faculty of what is in those FISA abstracts that the admiral initially said he would declassify?
GOODLATTE: Well, the admiral needs to abide hands-on, on this issue. He needs to be alone affianced in administering the activity by which those abstracts are declassified.
I’m animated he has entrusted the ambassador accepted at the Department of Amends to advice with this, because I acquire abundant aplomb in the ambassador general. But he needs to be in connected acquaintance with the admiral and the White Abode agents about accomplishing this, and accomplishing it actual quickly, in a amount of days, not weeks, to get these abstracts appear in a anatomy that assure sources and methods, but lets the American bodies see what has been activity on.
GOODLATTE: Transparency should be at the affection of this. That’s area the president’s affection is. And that is, in my opinion, what needs to appear here, so anybody can adjudicator for themselves…
BARTIROMO: I mean, is it possible…
GOODLATTE: … what was activity on.
BARTIROMO: Is it accessible that Rod Rosenstein is administering the Robert Mueller investigation, and yet Rosenstein was the one who OKed the fourth FISA warrant? How is that possible?
And afresh now we apperceive about this added abode that he…
GOODLATTE: Well, we…
BARTIROMO: … capital to abrasion a wire and adjure the 25th.
GOODLATTE: Well, that’s why I anticipate it’s so important that these abstracts get out, because, in my assessment — and I’m not activity to point fingers at any accurate alone — we apperceive there’s a lot of astriction amid bodies like James Comey and John — McCabe and Rod Rosenstein.
GOODLATTE: But we allegation to acquire the facts out, so that we can adjudge for ourselves.
And I will answer afresh what I acquire said for abounding months now. And that is that the advocate accepted of the United States needs to accredit a appropriate admonition to accessory into all of this, because there are abeyant conflicts there. But it’s adamantine to achieve what those conflicts are aback not all the abstracts are out there and we acquire adverse letters in assorted sources of the account media.
GOODLATTE: Aloof like with the Kavanaugh and Ford matter, we shouldn’t be aggravating this in the media. We should be absolution the United States Senate chase their activity and accomplish a accommodation there.
GOODLATTE: And, here, the Abode of Representatives…
GOODLATTE: … the people’s house, needs to acquire admission to these documents, so that afresh the American bodies can apprentice what has transpired in what I anticipate is a above abortion of amends in these two investigations, two abundantly important investigations amorphous in 2016.
I aloof appetite to ask you absolute quick, afore you go, Mr. Chairman. I aloof appetite to reiterate the breaking account that you aloof gave us. And that is, if you don’t get the documents, including the McCabe memos, you will amendment them aing week.
And, cardinal two, Nellie Ohr, is she abnegation to testify?
GOODLATTE: No, Nellie Ohr is cooperating. We acquire a date for her actualization afore the board for an account on October 19.
However, I anticipate that your aboriginal point…
GOODLATTE: … I appetite to reemphasize, it’s not aing anniversary we will affair the subpoena. It’s this anniversary that we will affair the subpoena…
BARTIROMO: This week, this accessible week.
GOODLATTE: … if those abstracts are not anon forthcoming.
BARTIROMO: Mr. Chairman, accede you.
We will be appropriate back.
BARTIROMO: Welcome back.
This accessible Tuesday, Admiral Trump is accepted to bear his additional abode afore the United Nations. Topping the calendar will acceptable be denuclearization talks with North Korea, ascent tensions with Iran, all-around trade, and his America-first appearance of adopted policy.
For a examination of what we could expect, in this absolute account appropriate now, Civic Aegis Adviser John Bolton.
Ambassador, abundant to see you this morning. Acknowledgment so abundant for aing us.
JOHN BOLTON, U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER: Animated to be back.
BARTIROMO: What should we apprehend from the admiral this week?
BOLTON: Well, I anticipate he’s got a brace above possibilities absolutely to advice brighten for the American bodies what America’s abode in the apple is.
His Accepted Assembly accent on Tuesday that you mentioned will allocution a lot about American sovereignty, how that fits into America’s abode in the apple as a whole. In addition, there’s a Aegis Council affair on Wednesday, area he will allocution about his nonproliferation policies, ambidextrous with the nuclear threats of North Korea and Iran. Actual important to appearance how altered his administering of those is because of the altered circumstances.
And we acquire got above issues with two of the world’s added powers, China on barter and on broader issues of geostrategic conflict, and Russia, area we’re adjoin in a cardinal of altered areas.
So I anticipate the admiral will acquire a adventitious to appearance how abounding the all-embracing calendar is and how alive he has been in anniversary of these altered areas.
BARTIROMO: Has China pushed aback in any way aback the admiral started blame and dabbling China the way he has? Because we apperceive that China has been burglary bookish acreage for decades, and they won’t acquire it. Acquire they afflicted their behavior in any way?
BOLTON: Well, I anticipate they’re still aggravating to amount out what the president’s up to, although there’s no doubt, in some of the tariffs that they acquire imposed, they acquire targeted the president’s supporters in Congress to see if they can change the majority.
I anticipate a lot of bodies don’t acquire absolutely what’s at pale here. And I anticipate the admiral will abode this. This is not aloof an bread-and-er issue. This is not aloof talking about tariffs and the agreement of trade. This is a catechism of power.
The bookish acreage annexation that you mentioned has a above appulse on China’s bread-and-er capacity, and, therefore, on its advancing capacity. And I anticipate the admiral accurately understands, aback China gets bread-and-er adeptness by burglary from the United States and others, it’s time to alarm a stop to it.
BARTIROMO: And afresh they are applying that bread-and-er adeptness adjoin their advancing circuitous by creating these islands in the — in the South China Sea and assertive them and afresh ambience up — ambience up advancing bases there. Is that right?
BOLTON: Right, exactly.
China — you know, they allocution in the Middle East about creating facts on the arena in the Israel-Palestinian issue. China’s creating the arena in the South China Sea and putting added facts on top of it. It’s actual dangerous, actual aggressive, article that the administering has confronted.
And I anticipate all of this goes to what will be the above affair of the 21st century, which is how China and the United States get along.
Take us abaft the scenes in that room, in the U.N. Accepted Assembly, because you acquire got players like Syria, Russia. And there acquire been developments there in the news. What is best important that the American bodies allegation to focus on as we watch all of these players collaborate this accessible week?
BOLTON: Well, I anticipate it shows how circuitous the all-embracing ambiance is.
Let’s booty the case of Syria, area aloof in the accomplished few canicule the Syrians attempt bottomward a Russian airplane, killing 15 Russians. They are allies, Syria and Russia. Russia has two bases, advancing bases in Syria.
This happened because of an Israeli airstrike adjoin Iranians who are aggravating to accouter the Hezlah terrorists with ballistic missile capabilities.
So here’s article that shows the continuing blackmail of Iran, not aloof on the nuclear side, but in aggressive, angry behavior in the arena that puts us at accident of this affectionate of conflict.
BARTIROMO: What happens aing with Iran? I mean, how do you see that accord changing?
BOLTON: Well, the president’s accommodation to abjure from the Iran nuclear accord has had a abstruse aftereffect on Iran and the arena as a whole. And with alike stronger sanctions advancing aback in November, we anticipate we acquire disrupted their efforts to accredit their will in countries about the region.
We anticipate these new sanctions advancing in will acquire a cogent bread-and-er and political aftereffect central the country. And that’s what we want. We appetite massive changes in behavior by the administering in Iran. And if they don’t undertake that, they will face added consequences, because we will acquisition added sanctions to accredit and added means to put best burden on them.
BARTIROMO: So, added after-effects for Iran. You anticipate afresh we will see added sanctions if they do not comply?
BOLTON: Absolutely, no agnosticism about it.
BARTIROMO: What about Syria? Will there be a acknowledgment in agreement of the U.S. and Syria?
BOLTON: Well, the admiral was actual clear. He expects that Syria is not activity to accredit in a barbarous aggression of Idlib province.
We acquire commented that, if Syria uses actinic weapons again, in Idlib or anywhere else, they will face a third acknowledgment militarily from the United States. And it will not be small, because we appetite to accomplish it bright that we apprehend this is never activity to appear again.
So the Middle East charcoal acutely volatile. Our acquaintance Israel is in crisis from Iran. Our accompany in the oil-producing monarchies of the Arabian Peninsula are at accident from Iran. And this — the affectionate of bread-and-er and political alternation that Iran is causing in that arena and about the apple is unacceptable.
BARTIROMO: And afresh there’s the Qataris, who, of course, are affable or ally with the Muslim Brotherhood.
We acquire fabricated it actual bright we anticipate all this abutment for agitation should stop. The president’s aboriginal across cruise was in Riyadh, area he created the anti-terror coalition. All the countries that attended, including Qatar, promised to accord up their abutment for terrorism. The Qataris allegation to accomplish that — allegation to accomplish that appear true.
BARTIROMO: As civic aegis adviser, I admiration your thoughts on this accomplished assembly in the intelligence association and what we’re ambidextrous with in agreement of the ysis into Trump-Russia bunco that is absent two years later.
BOLTON: Well, you know, the admiral gets criticized for actuality bendable on Russia.
I’m still cat-and-mouse to see affirmation of that. He has accustomed us to booty actual able activity adjoin acclamation meddling by anybody, able activity adjoin intrusions into our admonition technology systems by countries like Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.
Just aftermost week, he active a new charge that reverses the Obama administering activity of not auspicious abhorrent cyber-operations by the United States. This is a above change in the way we’re accomplishing business.
BOLTON: And our adversaries allegation to apperceive that.
BARTIROMO: This is what I appetite to allocution to you about.
Let’s booty a abbreviate break. I appetite to apprehend added about this new activity on cyber, because it is a changeabout from Admiral Obama’s policy.
More of my absolute account advancing up with Civic Aegis Adviser John Bolton.
Just canicule ago, Ambassador Bolton categorical the Trump administration’s new activity to go on the abhorrent with those cyber-attacks.
We’re attractive advanced on “Sunday Morning Futures.” Stay with us.
BARTIROMO: Welcome back.
I’m aback in my absolute account with Civic Aegis Adviser John Bolton.
Ambassador, we acquire account today that the board says they acquire talked to four declared to be at the affair by Dr. Ford, including Adjudicator and Kavanaugh. All four abjure any adeptness of Dr. Ford’s allegations, including actuality at the affair itself.
Your thoughts on what’s accident this morning and aing week, the abeyant affidavit of Ford and Kavanaugh?
BOLTON: Look, Adjudicator Kavanaugh’s an outstanding jurist. He’s a accomplished man. I don’t apperceive him able-bodied personally.
But accessory at the testimonies he’s had. And let’s anticipate about axiological candor here. I anticipate his accuser is advantaged to fairness. So is Adjudicator Kavanaugh and his family.
So I anticipate they affliction to get on. If they’re activity to acquire the hearing, let’s acquire it, and afresh let’s get on, and let the senators vote.
BARTIROMO: You alien a new cyber-policy. Why did you do this now? And why haven’t we had a change in our cyber-policy in, what, 15 years?
This is the aboriginal absolutely articulate cyber-security action in 15 years, as you say. And it’s continued overdue. Things are affective in a actual accelerated pace. This certificate is not carved in tablets of stone. We’re activity to be ecology and afterlight it.
We’re afraid about the clandestine sector. We’re afraid about government admonition technology. And, as I mentioned, I anticipate it’s actual important to actualize structures of aegis by activity on the abhorrent as well, which we’re activity to do.
BARTIROMO: And the better bad actors are?
BOLTON: Well, look, it’s China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea. We acquire apparent it in assorted hacks and accident done in both the clandestine and the accessible sectors.
BARTIROMO: All right, we will leave it there.
Ambassador, it’s abundant to acquire you on the program.
BOLTON: Animated to be back.
BARTIROMO: Accede you so much, John Bolton aing us there.
President Trump walking aback on his adjustment to declassify abstruse abstracts accompanying to the advancing ysis of Russia arrest during the 2016 presidential election.
This attenuate retreat advancing afterwards key allies allegedly asked him to burden from absolution this, acceptable accustomed the acute admonition they contain.
You aloof heard from Abode Judiciary Board Administrator Bob Goodlatte with breaking account on how they plan to amendment the Department of Amends this accessible anniversary for the Andy McCabe memos if they do not acquire those abstracts by this Tuesday.
Also, GPS Fusion researcher Nellie Ohr allied with the Abode Judiciary Committee. Bob Goodlatte told us there is a date for her to testify, October 19.
I appetite to accompany in Tom Fitton appropriate now. He is the admiral of Judicial Watch.
Tom, acknowledgment actual abundant for belief in here.
We acquire a date, October 19. Your thoughts?
TOM FITTON, PRESIDENT, JUDICIAL WATCH: Well, activity aback to The New York Times story, we’re talking about what was activity on in the Amends Department, and we can’t abstracted that, Nellie Ohr, jokes about recording the admiral or abandoning the 25th Amendment, with the arrangement of a appropriate counsel.
It was all allotment of the piece. It was all allotment of the altercation that was activity on talking about removing the admiral of the United States. And one of the options is appointing a appropriate counsel.
So, now we acquire this Mueller appropriate admonition that’s afflictive the admiral and accomplishing as abundant accident to the admiral as any abandoned accomplishment anon to aish him. It’s arrest his adeptness to accredit and blaze people. It’s arrest his adeptness to conduct adopted policy.
And it’s arrest his adeptness to adviser and booty affliction of the bribery activity on at the Amends Department and the FBI.
BARTIROMO: You know, it’s interesting.
Mark Penn is activity to be aing us momentarily, and he wrote a abundant op-ed in The Hill this weekend. And in it, he writes about Rosenstein and his wry faculty of humor. I acquire that a lot of bodies say he’s sarcastic. But, in accession one of his “jokes” — quote, unquote — he appears to acquire absolutely the faculty of humor.
He aloft axis the tables on Congress by reviewing the e-mails of assembly and agents who were there to accumulate admonition from the FBI. Oh, aloof kidding.
You bethink him adage that a brace of months, aback Devin Nunes accepted abstracts be beatific to Congress as allotment of this investigation, and he said, well, maybe we should aloof about-face the table and alpha attractive at your communication. Aloof kidding.
FITTON: And was Mr. Rosenstein badinage aback he active off on that bedraggled FISA spy accreditation targeting the Trump team, based on the Clinton-DNC dossier, that he’s active in denial abounding admonition about from the American people?
There’s a absolute crisis here. And as I — but, removing Rosenstein, Sessions, it doesn’t get to the affair of the appropriate admonition operation that would continue. And, of course, if the admiral were to do annihilation like aish an official, he’d be accountable to bent ysis again.
Look, this army anticipation he wasn’t accustomed to aish FBI Director Comey. And he went afterwards one of his assembly for corruption, and the acknowledgment was a appropriate counsel.
Now the Democrats are adage that, if he removes Rosenstein, they’re activity to acquire added acumen to accuse him. He needs to claiming the Mueller operation. He’s actuality inhibited in his role as president.
And if the Amends Department won’t do it, or if he declines to do it directly, he should see cloister relief.
BARTIROMO: Do you acquire the American bodies will see those documents, will see the FISA warrant, so that the American bodies can acutely acquire how they got a accreditation to eavesdrop an American aborigine based on counterfeit information?
FITTON: We acquire already apparent allotment of the warrants. I anticipate we will see the blow of the warrants. The catechism is when.
The abysmal state’s access actuality is out of a folio — is a folio out of the Nixon handbook, which is the adapted bound hangout, let it appear out slowly, over a aeon of time, and hopefully bodies won’t remember, and it gives the Mueller operation as abundant time as he needs to try to accident the president.
BARTIROMO: It’s absolutely extraordinary, aback you accede all of the bribery on the added side, aback we see how they capital to stop Donald Trump abominably from acceptable president, and a assembly of individuals put their feel on the calibration to change the advance of an acclamation because they aloof didn’t like him.
We allegation to see the affirmation on how they came up with this abstraction that Donald Trump had annihilation to do with Russia meddling.
And I aloof admiration if there is activity to be any accountability here, Tom.
FITTON: Well, Congress can do more. I accede they’re blame for the documents, afterward Judicial Watch’s advance on abounding of these issues, but they should accompany in Mr. Mueller into the — into Congress and ask him questions about not necessarily who he’s activity to account tomorrow, but how he was appointed, his conflicts of interest, why it is he can’t acquisition any Republicans or conservatives to assignment on his case team.
FITTON: This appropriate admonition is allowed from scrutiny.
And I’m aloof annoyed of talking about Bruce Ohr.
FITTON: I appetite to allocution about Mr. Mueller, who is appliance Bruce Ohr’s admonition to ambition and annoy this president.
BARTIROMO: Well, they additionally are pressuring now about annihilation the admiral does accompanying to the Supreme Court. They appetite to stop Brett Kavanaugh.
Real quick, your anticipation on that? Will they be successful?
FITTON: I don’t anticipate they will, although I anticipate they’re activity to acquire to booty some boxy accomplish to cut this ysis off or to abbreviate it.
I anticipate the abstraction that we allegation weeks of altercation to amount out what’s up and bottomward about these allegations is aloof as a aftereffect of poor leadership.
BARTIROMO: Tom, acceptable to acquire you on the program. Accede you so much.
FITTON: It can be ample out quickly.
BARTIROMO: OK. We will be watching this accessible week, area we could absolutely see them both affirm on Thursday.
Much added on all of this, the showdown with China over tariffs, with our console of Mark Penn and James Freeman from The Wall Street Journal, as we accessory advanced on “Sunday Morning Futures” next.
BARTIROMO: Welcome back.
A appropriate console today and a lot to breach down.
We appetite to accompany in our panel.
James Freeman is the abettor editor at The Wall Street Journal beat folio and a FOX Account contributor. Mark Penn is above Clinton strategist, managing accomplice of The Stagwell Group, and administrator of the Harris Poll. He is additionally the columnist of “Microtrends Squared: The New Baby Forces Active the Big Disruptions Today.”
Gentlemen, it’s acceptable to see you. Accede you so abundant for aing us.
BARTIROMO: Appetite to bang it off with your new op-ed, Mark, and accession absolutely crisp allotment here, area you right: “People barb aback I sometimes acquire and use that appellation abysmal state, but as an alfresco eyewitness watching the apprehension of the accomplishments of one official afterwards accession at the FBI, CIA and DOJ, I acquire appear to acquire that an unelected accumulation of well- educated, accomplished individuals alive these departments became inebriated with their own adeptness during the aftermost acclamation campaign, and allegedly came to acquire they were on a mission to stop, defeat or aish Admiral Trump and his assembly for crimes they would acquisition or, if necessary, manufacturer.”
Wow, able words, manufacturer, Mark.
MARK PENN, FORMER CLINTON CAMPAIGN STRATEGIST: Well, I anticipate we see anniversary afterwards anniversary one and aboveboard acknowledgment afterwards another.
I mean, I’m still accepting over acquirements that Bruce Ohr was a abstruse go- amid with Christopher Steele, who for months and months, we were told, was fired, while his wife had an bearding accord to the bodies who were paid for the abstracts and was absolutely alive on it.
And afresh this week, we now apprentice the abeyant Rosenstein allegations, as McCabe, it looks to me, apparently accursed aback at Rosenstein, because I think, already you bisect all of these bodies in the FBI and the CIA and put them beneath some pressure, I anticipate we’re activity to acquisition some absurd revelations actuality about what they were doing, and what I would acquire to say was a delusion that was created by the Steele abstracts and the answer alcove about it that motivated these bodies to breach their oaths to the Constitution.
BARTIROMO: I agree.
I can’t acquaint you how appreciative I am of this aggregation on “Sunday Morning Futures.” We acquire backward on this adventure aback January every distinct week.
And, James, the actuality is, is now we acquire date for Nellie Ohr to testify, but we’re still cat-and-mouse for the evidence, the abstracts to appearance and to prove to the American bodies what went on here.
Your thoughts on how…
JAMES FREEMAN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Yes, conceivably the abstracts that Administrator Goodlatte said beforehand on this affairs he’s activity to amendment may allow some ablaze on that.
But to Mark’s point about the Constitution, this charge be actual confusing, the aftermost brace of years, for kids who apprehend about Article 2, Section 1, adage that the controlling adeptness shall will be vested in a admiral of the United States.
There is so abundant media advantage suggesting that, whether you appetite to alarm it abysmal accompaniment or the bureaucracy, suggesting that the Amends Department is somehow absolute of the president, or it’s inappropriate for him to exercise this controlling authority.
I anticipate it’s absolutely poisonous. And what we allegation to acquisition out is what absolutely was done by bodies who we acquire apparent approved had a bent adjoin the admiral to baffle with his election, or abeyant election.
BARTIROMO: And, unfortunately, the boilerplate media is array of active the bus on this. This will go bottomward at some point as the best base time, for the boilerplate media to acquire abandoned such an important story.
FREEMAN: If there’s not added evidence.
We’re still cat-and-mouse here, aren’t we? It’s now added than two years afterwards this began. We acquire not gotten a bright announcement of absolutely aback it started, but we’re now added than two years into this. We’re cat-and-mouse for the affirmation that would somehow absolve amazing use of the government surveillance’s adeptness adjoin the affair out of power.
BARTIROMO: Which brings me aback to the Rod Rosenstein story, Mark, because we apperceive that Rod Rosenstein OKed — acutely OKed a accreditation the fourth time about to eavesdrop Carter Page.
And yet he’s administering the Mueller investigation.
PENN: Well, that’s right.
And if you accessory at how annoyed he got aback asked did he absolutely apprehend the FISA appliance in his testimony, you see addition who consistently has said, hey, we’re an island over actuality in the — in the Amends Department. I don’t abode to the president. I don’t abode to Congress. I abode to my appearance of the law.
And that’s wrong. And I anticipate that Congress is activity to acquire to get these abstracts out, that Rosenstein is the cardinal one actuality who absolutely is captivation them up, in adjustment to betrayal the sunshine actuality that the American accessible absolutely needs.
BARTIROMO: So do you anticipate Rosenstein should be fired?
FREEMAN: Well, I anticipate that you do appetite to get those documents.
The catechism here, I — these — these latest account accounts that he was in on some accomplishment to conceivably aish the president, denied by Mr. Rosenstein, but it does put a spotlight.
You go aback to 2017. Bodies balloon this. May of 2017, his announcement laid out in absolute detail why there was bipartisan abutment to get rid of Jim Comey.
FREEMAN: Why he had abandoned Amends Department procedures.
FREEMAN: And then…
BARTIROMO: And afresh he got agitated aback the admiral said, yes, I accursed him.
FREEMAN: And then, aback the admiral did aloof that, obviously, the admiral gave an odd account to Lester Holt.
FREEMAN: But to afresh actualize the appropriate counsel, afterwards the admiral did what he had aloof recommended, strikes a lot of bodies as odd.
BARTIROMO: Added with James Freeman and Mark Penn appropriate afterwards this.
BARTIROMO: We are aback with our panel, James Freeman and Mark Penn.
And, Mark, in your op-ed, “Donald Trump’s Rosenstein Dilemma,” you say he’s accursed if he does and accursed if he doesn’t.
PENN: Well, that’s the bind that the admiral faces.
Ordinarily, you would blaze somebody like Rosenstein, no questions asked. But in this environment, he can’t do that. It would be acclimated adjoin him. He’d be depicted as a bad man.
PENN: So, instead, the best he can do now is get these abstracts out, accuse to the ambassador general.
But, afterwards the midterms, if the Republicans lose Congress, these investigations will stop, and he’s either activity to acquire to accredit a appropriate admonition himself, and acquire two of them, or acquire none of them. But afterwards a new appropriate counsel, there will be no added ysis of this. And the accessible needs it.
BARTIROMO: You’re absolutely right. We will not apprehend accession chat about it, because all the board chairmen will — will cast to Democrats.
And, James, alike in the face of all of this, his outcomes in agreement of his behavior — he’s got all these detractors everywhere, alike from aural the administering and aural the intelligence community, and yet he’s blame aback on China, aboriginal admiral to do so in a continued time in agreement of their behavior.
FREEMAN: Yes. Yes.
And they aloof canceled these accessible discussions. That wasn’t a surprise. But I anticipate it is a admonition that there’s a — there’s a big allegation actuality for the admiral to dness his fights with Canada and Mexico and Europe, because the China barter problem, as we acquire discussed, the annexation of bookish property, which they will not accede yet, is not article that’s activity to be apparent quickly.
It’s not activity to be apparent afore the midterms. I anticipate he wants a win. He knows he needs a win on trade. He’s activity to acquire to get it either with the new NAFTA or Europe.
BARTIROMO: Will he get it, though?
I mean, already he’s done a — array of a handshake blazon of accord with Mexico, right? Will Canada appear in and chase suit?
FREEMAN: I anticipate they allegation to.
FREEMAN: I anticipate they acquire how important it is for them. I anticipate there’s a faculty that advancement barriers on dairy is not — bigger with the United States than with added countries — is not absolutely tenable.
But the admiral additionally needs to apprehend that, if he wants a deal, if they accord him what he wants on trade, he shouldn’t allegation to debris the altercation resolution activity of NAFTA, which about anybody complex likes.
We will see what happens this week.
Real quick on Kavanaugh. Let’s end on Kavanaugh.
Your thoughts, Mark, on what we could see aing week, as accession affidavit with Ford and Kavanaugh Thursday, perhaps?
PENN: Well, I’m more agnostic that we will absolutely see testimony, although, if there is, it will apparently be 100 actor bodies affability into this thing, as it’s been congenital up.
BARTIROMO: Yes. Absolute quick.
PENN: Look, actual clearly, every day, the catechism afore the American accessible is did Kavanaugh do it or not is a day that Democrats are acceptable and Republicans are losing…
PENN: … because nobody’s talking about the economy.
BARTIROMO: Abundant to acquire you both here. Accede you so much.
That is “Sunday Morning Futures.” I will see you tomorrow on FOX Business.
Have a abundant Sunday, everybody.
