TOM FITTON: The Justice Department, The Mueller DOJ Russia indictment is the DOJ, deep staters hijacking our foreign policy with respect to Russia. Supposedly they told President Trump just a week before the Putin summit that oh, we're going to indict all these guys, what do you think about it? What is he going to say? Don't do it or wait until after the summit? That would be leaked immediately and would be accused of obstructing the Justice Department investigation.
And you have this intervention in foreign policy with these indictments that are really press releases in a sense they will never be litigated or see trial, and it's distorting our relationship with Russia. And I am no fan of Putin, but I don't want the Justice Department running the show.
LOU DOBBS (HOST): The Justice Department has very little to do with justice right now and all about politics. It is beyond politicized, it is an active political arm of the left in this country, and the deep state and there is no question about it and for Christopher Wray to sit in Aspen and answer a question as he did, he's not an artful person or an imaginative one.
