'Something Smells Like a Rat': Mark Levin Calls for 'Abolishing' the FISA Court


Rep. Matt Gaetz and a dozen other House Republicans are calling for the Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel to investigate surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign. 

Gaetz (R-Fla.) said if Attorney General Jeff Sessions will not take such action, then he "should step aside" so a replacement can move forward. 

He stressed that the probe by the Justice Department's inspector general is "limited" in terms of interviewing former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe. 

Gaetz said on "Outnumbered Overtime" that a second probe would provide "real accountability for these crimes that were committed against President Trump and his team." 

He said Republicans called for a second special counsel seven months ago, but Sessions took no action. 

"If Jeff Sessions doesn't want to do the job of attorney general, he should step aside and we should get somebody who wants to do that job."

Gaetz was asked by Harris Faulkner about President Trump's latest tweet, in which he accuses the Obama administration of investigating his campaign "with zero proof of wrongdoing."

The freshman lawmaker said Trump has been proven right that the FBI was "spying" on his team based on a "false and rotten premise," referring to the Steele dossier.

"The president has been vindicated," Gaetz said.
