Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) joined Brian Kilmeade to discuss House Republicans questioning of former FBI Director James Comey over his handling of General Michael Flynn which lead Flynn to plead guilty to lying to the FBI. Issa said Comey had an obligation to inform President Obama on Flynn or anyone who had a national security clearance that is a potential risk in the days leading to the transition from President Obama to President Trump. Issa explained that Comey, "Had an obligation not to try to get Flynn trapped into a lie so we could prosecute him. He had an obligation to protect national security and all indications are he didn't do it." When asked about James Comey saying the FBI's reputation has taken a hit because of President Trump and his acolytes, Issa responded, "The FBI is not a trusted organization. The Department of Justice is never again going to suggest that people do interviews without lawyers without people thinking of exactly this. The fact that they will knowingly entrap somebody, they will lie to them about not being a target, when they are." Issa went on to say he believes it will ultimately come down to President Trump and his new Attorney General to restore trust in the FBI and Department of Justice.

Plus, Congressman Issa on why he does not see a way to avoid a government shutdown and his hope for a miracle to keep the government running.
