Fox News’ Harris Faulkner gave a tough-as-nails interview to Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell on Wednesday about deep state corruption.


Faulkner slammed deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein over a new report that he threatened to subpoena members of the House Intelligence Committee, but Swalwell insisted that he trusts Rosenstein’s credibility.

“Credibility matters, you know,” Swalwell said.

“Facts matter, too,” Faulkner shot back. “And they don’t care about your feelings. So it will be interesting to see what comes forth.”

Faulkner continued the interview by asking Swalwell if he agrees with former deputy AG Andrew McCabe that he was wrongfully terminated from his post.

“What is tricky about Andrew McCabe’s firing is that the President of the United States was involved from what he said when they met in private about Andrew McCabe’s wife to what he would tweet out to the public,” Swalwell argued. “So whether that influenced how Mr. McCabe was viewed by the inspector general, I don’t know. But I don’t like that the president did that either.”

“Wow. That’s an interesting place you just went. Because I would have guessed that the facts prove that what’s tricky about Andrew McCabe is that he lied to investigators and that’s a crime,” Faulkner asserted.

“You can’t lie,” Swalwell conceded.

Faulkner concluded by knocking Swalwell for interviewing McCabe for eight hours and never asking if he lied to the FBI.
