Is that we hold bureaucrats to the same level all the rest of us for help to what American people main -- American people why actually want.
And and we gather all the facts and we allow them to go to a court of their peers and and and defend themselves -- on these allegations we have to go forward.
Is there any reason why the whistle blowers won't come forward anymore this isn't -- a prime example of what we do to people that are trying to blow the whistle and do something right.
Very quickly what is next for the house oversight committee investigating.
Fast -- -- We want to see more of the documentation.
In that we've been asking for un redacted so we can get to the bottom of this.
And then we want to look carefully at the discussion that mr.
holder had with the Senate Judiciary Committee.
