President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani dismissed Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy's defense of the FBI's use of a confidential source to investigate potential Russian outreach to individuals connected to Trump's presidential campaign, telling CNN on Thursday, "He's drinking the Kool-Aid." Giuliani went on to criticize Gowdy over his handling of a Republican-led investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack, which has been criticized by Democrats as a partisan attempt to undermine Hillary Clinton. Gowdy oversaw the investigation as chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. "I never understood what he did with Benghazi either. He really screwed that up. I don't know what he was doing," Giuliani said.
Jason Chaffetz, former Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee and Fox News contributor, joins Guy and Marie to discuss Giuliani's comments and more.
On Trey Gowdy's comments and the backlash he has received: It's very important that he said that nothing they've seen has anything to do with Donald Trump, which is a really big deal. What I'm not seeing is that if it is counterintelligence, which we have always been told it is, why wasn't Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton informed. (2:11)
On reports that the FBI did inform Trump and Clinton of foreign adversaries trying to interfere: I think it's common sense that somebody, whether it'd be Russia, China, or somebody else that their might be someone who wants to do something nefarious. If it was someone specific that is different. (4:08)
On how confident he is about Gowdy's statements: He's a straight-shooter...he calls balls and strikes as he sees them...I trust as much as anybody on this planet. (7:00)
On Attorney General Jeff Sessions: I think the Attorney General should step down and resign. he doesn't have the confidence of his boss. He is there in name only. (8:33)
