-- senator Scott Brown says the Obama administration has abused the trust of the American people.
In connection with the IRS scandal.
Joining me -- discuss the political impact of all of these scandals that are emerging and plaguing this administration is former senator.
Brown now -- Fox News contributor.
Great to have you with us -- and -- The more we listen to what this administration says.
The more contradictions we hear is we ask that the outside.
At the outset of this broadcast.
-- do misrepresentation.
Well love first of all -- scandal is now scandals according to the wait -- this is just -- miscommunication that trying to obviously.
Kind of poo -- everything and and and have this go away but bottom line is you're right.
When does that line get drawn and whether they cross that line and I'll tell you what.
Do the right of free speech the right of the press to do their jobs.
Is that check and balance that is needed in government.
Because other other than that sometimes there is no check and balance I think they're getting very close I obviously have said.
Before I'll say it again what happened with the IRS is unacceptable.
And there should be more heads are rolling and they should be a top to bottom review of that agency see what else is out there -- they've been doing.
And and then try to reestablish that trust of the American people same thing with the -- Did have the Justice Department in holder should have been.
Fired a long time ago there's very few people in congress that have any faith in his abilities after the fast and furious after trying to.
Have KSM tried in New York City.
What we're seeing here and what we're hearing.
On and on and on when does it stop.
-- the attorney general turning to the Justice Department -- Testified.
Before congress saying that he could not imagine such a thing -- spying on the price when and precisely that that.
That's this attorney general was during precisely what he was -- -- I it -- I did more egregious than that doesn't.
Melo if he did and he should be fired if he didn't nobody should be fired and -- need.
All of the people that work they work for him and he works for the president and there's been an -- -- -- a clear and convincing abuse of authority.
Almost a bullying.
A chilling effect on.
And -- -- on individual citizens on news gathering agencies on individuals.
And it's wrong it's not what our country is all about.
And as I said he should have been fired along time ago it's unacceptable.
And the needs to be some type.
In some way to hold these folks responsible and accountable.
The the AP scam it's the Justice Department scandalous on BP scandalous the Justice Department scandal can actually -- the Associated Press phone records of its reporters and editors.
The silence was deafening from the fourth estate.
When they should have been in joining this administration.
And bringing powerful critical judgment to bear against.
Now we find out our colleagues at least three of them and Fox News have been serve bailed -- and in the case of James Rosen actually somebody in the Justice Department.
Named him as a criminal co conspirator.
-- -- which he is this person ought to be in jail for lie.
In in my opinion right now.
What is your reaction to this this is worsening by their while by the week.
This is America correct we do live in America.
Listen I'm I'm dumbfounded as to how good people are still in their jobs but to take up a wide swath and go after the AP and just have his blanket.
-- inquiry for information.
If it was a more specific instance and there was a real national security risk I would I would say OK that's that's a little bit different but that's not the case here.
And to label journalists is that as a co conspirator there's very serious and whoever sign that warned that needs to obviously be held accountable as well and up.
I'm shocked to -- every news agency whether it's conservative moderate to liberal is in going after the Justice Department filing the appropriate.
The lawsuits to make sure that there's this this and other things like this never happened again.
This administration is quickly making it clear.
Are they not that they are is eager to.
To a -- the First Amendment as they are the second I think people thought there would be limits there appeared to be not your thoughts as we wrap up.
Well my thoughts are very they're very simple we as American citizens -- we have to look out for our rights in our interest and when you have an executive branch and others who work for the executive branch.
Usurping their authority -- taking it a step too far.
We need to stand up as Americans and pushed back.
And that comes through the media that comes from individual citizens whether you have to file lawsuits where you have to push back by getting these people out of office and and and demanding.
Redress in demanding accountability and he spoke to be a full.
Open an immediate and transparent investigation to each and every one of these matters.
Thank you very much for senators Barbara thank you thank you Lou great turning now.
