Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on former assistant U.S. attorney Daniel Goldman Wednesday, and it got heated.
“We know that the last administration had a paid informant spying on at least three members of the Trump campaign,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.
“Now, maybe there was a good reason for that, maybe there wasn’t, but the fact of it is true, and it’s known by the public. And the fact of it shakes the public’s faith in the integrity of the Department of Justice. So why wouldn’t responsible people do their very best to explain why the hell that happened as soon as they possibly can and calm public fears that the system is corrupt? Because the public is beginning to believe it is, including me. Why wouldn’t we have the right to know why that happened?”
“I actually think I’m not at all partisan,” Goldman said. “I think the people who use the term ‘spy’ in the context of a confidential informant, are doing only for partisan reasons, because a spy does not exist within the FBI. So, when you’re going down that road of using a spy…”
“What I’m doing is speaking plain English, and what you’re doing is carrying water for a political party,” he shot back. “I am saying that they spied on members of the Trump campaign, they gathered information without the knowledge of the people they were speaking to.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Just Unbelievable’: Jeff Sessions Lays Down The Law With Tucker [VIDEO])
