Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night that the “American people have a right to know” if the officials at the Justice Department and FBI abused the FISA process to secure warrants on members of the Trump campaign.


“Andrew McCabe, former deputy FBI director, said no dossier and no application for FISA warrant,” Hannity first posed. “So it played a big role.”

“They didn’t tell the court that in fact Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for it, and then they tried to corroborate it but but it was the same source adding a Yahoo News article, so it was deceptive toward the court,” he continued. “The issue of FISA abuse is now front and center. Does it sound like FISA abuse to you?”

“We will know when all the facts are out, and the American people have a right to know,” Pence responded. “Whatever the mechanism is for that, I think it is important that if there were actions take than were inconsistent with the FISA courts or in other respects relative to the law they need to be addressed and they need to be fully vetted.”
