ALEX JONES (HOST): I’ve got to tell you, it has been folks in Congress like the Chairman [Rep.] Devin Nunes [R-CA], and people like [Rep.] Trey Gowdy [R-SC], and people like [Rep.] Jim Jordan [R-OH] who have been leading the charge against this incredible bullying. And we’re very thankful for President Trump and the American people being awake and seeing through the Russia collusion canard to try to violate our election and what people have done, the will of the people. But without these congressmen up there telling the truth, there would be nobody out there. And the leftist media has pointed this out.

But out of the gates, pun intended, Matt Gaetz from Florida has been one of the strongest, most focused, eloquent, on-target voices who we’ve all watched on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, doing battle. He’s got a statement out on the deputy director -- acting director stepping down and so much more on the eve of the vote here on the memo and so much more. So Congressman Matt Gaetz, thank you for joining us.

REP. MATT GAETZ (R-FL): Good to be with you, Alex.

JONES: Well, wow, what a time to be alive seeing all this. Where should we start? With [Andrew] McCabe? Or with the vote tonight on the memo? I mean so much is happening.

GAETZ: Well I think we’ve got a lot of momentum in the Congress to get this memo released and before the American people and that’s absolutely essential. We’ve got to decide as a country what kind of government we want to have. What individual liberties protected by our constitution are worthy of fighting for.

I think it’s also important for the FBI to move on past the era of Andrew McCabe. I wish him the best, I certainly don’t hope anything bad happens to him going forward. But I absolutely think the FBI and the Department of Justice have become so politicized that they had lost their way and they lost of the confidence of the American people and now we have got to rebuild that through reforms and transparency and I think the first thing we can do in the Congress is vote to release this memo.
