Former FBI Director James Comey is suddenly worried about the weaponization of the DOJ. Comey said President Biden must be reelected to avoid "four years of a retribution presidency." In other words, if Trump wins, he will use the FBI and other federal agencies to get revenge on his political enemies. Should the Democrats who used the Mueller Report to conduct the impeachment of Trump be concerned? The Sekulow team discusses this and more on today's show.

Today on Sekulow, the FBI's corrupt Comey suddenly is concerned about DOJ weaponization.

I wonder why. We'll talk about it today on Sekulow. And now your host, Jordan Sekulow. Welcome to Sekulow. We are taking your phone calls at 1-800-684-3110.

That's 1-800-684-3110. I want to hear this. This is a blast from the past, but I guess he's going to try to have some election interference once again. Jim Comey.

The number one election interfere, I think, in the United States of America with his FBI launching bogus campaign after bogus investigation against Donald Trump filing documents, you know, signing off on wiretaps of American citizens, sending in FBI agents unannounced to the White House. Of course, all of these individuals were exonerated, but Jim Comey believes, you know, you give the job of the President over to Donald Trump and the Constitution gives the President a lot of power to act legally to come after bad actors like me. And he's very concerned that if Donald Trump comes back, Jim Comey might be in his crosshairs. But he even admits Jim Comey that it would be legitimate because the President would have the power under the Constitution if he felt that those kind of individuals still needed to, they had never seen justice and that they were continuing again and their colleagues to meddle in U.S. elections.

I want to play the sack. We play right away from Jim Comey because I think it is intense just to really restate how he tries to scare the country away from Donald Trump with the legitimacy of the U.S. Constitution. And so our Constitution really does give a rogue President, which is what this would be, tremendous power to destroy. And so that's why I'm trying to warn people, given the way he said he intends to operate if he's reelected, this will be something we could never have imagined. Again, it seems like science fiction in a way, but it's what another four years of Donald Trump really promises, which is why people criticize CNN for their town hall. I want the American people to stare at the threat that we're facing and understand that they cannot take the next election off. Okay, so there you go from Jim Comey.

I want to go to Andy on this right away. Andy, this idea that the Constitution gives a President the ability to go rogue, it's as if Jim Comey is doubting our founding fathers and the creation of the executive branch and the commander-in-chief position of the President. But what I think he's really concerned about is the Constitution gives the President legitimate authority to go after bad actors within the federal government who are trying to subvert the will of the people.

Well, Jordan, that's absolutely correct. We have what's called a unitary executive in the United States. The President is the executive branch of government, and everybody operates under the executive. But when you talk about a rogue President, you're talking about – this is the last person, Jim Comey, in the world who should be talking about a rogue because he is the epitome and the absolute poster child for a rogue. A man who, during the chaos of the administration, sends in two FBI agents to snoop around to find out what's going on and does it, and very proud about doing it, who sends false warrants to the FISA courts containing false information, who is behind every weaponization of the Justice Department, the FBI of which he was the director and which President Trump terminated him. And now he's saying that he is scared that there's going to be a rogue President of the United States that's going to be after him. If there is a President and he's reelected and it's President Trump, guess what? He ought to be after Jim Comey.

I mean, this is, I think, where we stand right now. Will, when we come back, we've got even more from Jim Comey on how he believes that the DOJ and FBI will be weaponized. That's right, and it is rich seeing his checkered past when it comes to weaponizing that very same department under just a few years back. Yes, he's worried that the Trump team would weaponize the Department of Justice. You mean that the weaponized Department of Justice we're seeing right now under Joe Biden that we saw under Jim Comey trying to take down a sitting President they were supposed to be working for and carrying out his policies? They ignored those.

They just wanted to focus all their time on taking him out of office. We want to take your calls. 1-800-684-3110. Talk to us on the show. We'll be right back on Sekulow. Alright, welcome back to Sekulow. We are taking your phone calls at 1-800-684-3110.

That's 1-800-684-3110. A lot going on, of course, in the world of politics. But the ugly reared head of Jim Comey has come back from the grave politically to tell you who you must vote for. And when asked even if there was anybody other than Joe Biden, anybody, this is a guy, even Jen Psaki who was interviewing him. I always forget that Jen Psaki is now a nonpartisan host on a MSNBC show, I guess, that brings in Jim Comey.

And listen to this one. It's just rich. The idea that I guess Jim Comey just hasn't learned what so many both Republicans and Democrats have learned about him. Is that he's a rogue actor that cannot be trusted at the FBI. That's why he lost his job. Hillary Clinton didn't trust him. Donald Trump didn't trust him. The American people don't trust him. And he's now telling you, I love this from a former FBI director, who you must vote for.

That's really rich also considering this is Mr. Rogue FBI Director Jim Comey. Take a listen. You were a Republican most of your life, but voted for, and you may consider yourself one, but voted for Biden in 2020. Do you intend to vote for him again? Or is there anyone on the Republican side you might consider if it's not Trump? It has to be Joe Biden.

And I'm glad he's willing to serve. It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country. And I'm not talking about policy. People can disagree about policy.

There are things above those disagreements that all of us should think about the same way. The President must be someone who abides the law and our Constitution. And there's no one else but Joe Biden. I mean, right there, I want to go, well, the idea that there's many Republican candidates running, some of which might even like Jim Comey, because they don't really, they really have a hatred towards Donald Trump, and they want to be the opposite of Donald Trump. And yet he doesn't even think there's one of those that should be considered by the American people. He believes that the Republican Party is the, what, the party that wants an FBI not to be corrupt, a party that wants the FBI not to play politics.

And I guess he just doesn't accept that. We talk about the deep state here a lot at the ACLJ, and this is kind of the perfect example of what we're talking about. What he wants is a President who's going to look the other way and see a Department of Justice and an FBI that is going to run themselves by unelected bureaucrats and not follow the trajectory that the administration would like. And that is, in this case, he thinks that Republicans will dismantle the weaponized DOJ. And as we see Republicans trying to do in the House of Representatives right now, trying to get to the bottom of things that are irregular, things that are seeming to stink of politics, to be very swampy, that's what Republicans currently are trying to do. They're trying to say, hey, DOJ, maybe stop going after pro-life protesters and letting people that firebomb abortion clinics off the hook.

How about maybe don't send letters, IRS, to a Christian group and say, you know what, your beliefs are a little too conservative because you're a Christian, so you can't get tax-exempt status. That's what we don't want. That is actually following the rule of law in our Constitution, is when the bureaucracies don't judge people based off their political beliefs. That's all that the Republicans are wanting. They're wanting free speech, freedom of religion, things that are found in our Bill of Rights, and what the FBI, DOJ, the IRS, all the alphabet soup is currently doing is not following that. They are targeting people based off their political beliefs, their faith, and the content of their thoughts.

And that is very dangerous. That is a threat to the rule of law, not what Joe Biden or what Jim Comey is trying to say that Joe Biden would hold up. Andy, this is the Jim Comey who leaked documents, notes he took with the President of the United States, and leaked those documents to a law professor friend, and he said he did so intentionally to get a special counsel appointed. Then there was one appointed, dragged the country through the mud, and guess what that special counsel found?

Zero, zip, nothing. That's right. I mean, you know, we forget about that, and we don't need to forget about that.

We need to think about that. Jim Comey actually engineered by leaking to a friend of his, a professor, information of notes that he had taken with President Trump. And when asked about it, as you said, Jordan, he said, why'd you do it, Jim? Well, I did it because I wanted to get a special counsel appointed, and I succeeded in doing it.

Who are you to do something like that? What authority do you have to leak confidential information that you glean from a conversation with the President of the United States to someone for a motive that you have because you want to get a special counsel? And we went through that mud of the special counsel, and nothing came up, as you say, absolutely nothing was found out. But talk about a rogue. Here's a man, how dare he say that he had a rogue President and President Trump. What about this rogue that you've got right now who is involved in a $5 million foreign bribery scheme with his son and all these other things that are going on, who refuses to drill, who refuses to do the things with respect to Israel that need to be done through a corrupt Secretary of State Blinken. What about this person? We don't want to talk about him, no.

We want to talk about Donald Trump. Why? Because he's afraid. He's scared to death that if President Trump comes in, he may look at what Comey did and then come after him. Why not?

Why shouldn't he? But these are the kinds of things that I find absolutely incredible in the statements that Jim Comey is making. I really can't believe that he would have the audacity, a discredited person, discredited by the Republicans, discredited by the Democrats, discredited by Hillary Clinton and dismissed by Donald Trump, who now comes up and says, well, there is, if you put President Trump in office, it's an existential threat to the rule of law.

No, Jim, you are. You know, at ACLJ Action, Will, we've got a brand new letter writing campaign to hold the FBI accountable, and we've already had it. It just launched today. 4,800 letters have been written to the FBI about complying with the House Oversight Committee. I think this is important to point out. Today we know, Will, that people can go take that action at ACLJAction.org. I really encourage you, if you got the email, to do that. If you're not on the ACLJ Action email list, if you're not a member, it costs $25 to become a member, that's annually, of ACLJ Action because of C4 organization.

But you don't have to be a member to sign up for the email list or to get involved in the grassroots campaigns and the tools we have there to launch, and it makes it very easy to send these letters directly to those who need to get them. So in this case, it was over 4,800 before we even started the broadcast today. And I've got an update on that, which shows the power of ACLJ Action and the tool that people can go to.

We're now at 6,200. So the increase in letters being sent just keeps going up, and we can see the effect that we'll get from this. And what this ties to is that when Congress asked for oversight, Will, they asked to see that F.D. 1023 form from the FBI. First, it doesn't even exist.

We can't even tell you if it exists. That was what Christopher Wray said. And then when he was going to be held in contempt, he finally admitted it does exist and said, hey, you can come over to the FBI and read a redacted version. And then Comer said, no, we're Congress. We have oversight ability.

We're going to hold you in contempt. And then finally, it's, okay, we're going to bring you the document. It's today that they are bringing the document. We will then learn, I think, Will, if what Comer and others are able to analyze in this document, if they feel that the FBI was being forthcoming. I know there's likely going to have to be some redactions in those.

I understand that. But for members of Congress, that should be the most minimal redactions possible, the least redactions possible, if any, because of their specific role in oversight. And what they are really trying to get to is whether or not this information was ever investigated or, well, I think this is the new story, was it just treated like the Hunter Vine laptop? Was this just Russian disinformation?

And that's what we saw. Something new that they're trying to say this information was, just bad info from our Russian enemies. And that's what we saw from Katherine Herridge's reporting over at CBS last week, that the thing that they're really interested in getting to the bottom of is, is the FBI treating this politically? And that's what we're concerned about. That's what the oversight committee is concerned about, is that they're getting information that is verifiable and that in some cases, as Katherine Herridge reported, is verifiable and they had verified.

But then because of the implications of it, it gets labeled later as Russian disinformation or it gets put into a different computer tranche that makes it harder for the investigators to access. There's a lot of interesting tricks, and I think interesting is one way to put it, but it seems like tricks that the FBI is doing internally to get away from these politically charged investigations into what Hunter Biden was doing. And so the oversight committee and Senator Grassley as well, who's been handling some of the communications with these whistleblowers, really want to know, is the FBI doing their job? Because that's what we have oversight of. Are they doing their job? Gary, again, this all gets to that bottom line.

And folks, we're going to take your calls on that 1-800-684-3110. The FBI, listen, we know we need serious reforms there. We need a President who is willing to go in and put in those reforms. We need a Congress that's going to back them up.

We know that this House of Representatives would, but we'd certainly need a change in the Senate as well because we've got to go in there. We've got to go in there and shake things up fundamentally so that, again, this is where we get to a point where we feel like the FBI is beyond repair. We're also putting our country at risk because they are supposed to be doing very important work to keep you and me safe, our kids safe. And that's the work they should be doing and focusing on, not politics, not their former directors telling us, there's not a single Republican you can vote for. You either vote Democrat or you're voting chaos.

And you're voting destruction. We'll be right back. Welcome back to Secula.

We are taking your calls too on 1-800-684-3110. Even though you might notice Logan is out, we will do a Secula Brothers podcast. There's some crazy news over the weekend too in Washington, D.C. There's planes, there's F-16s being mobilized across the Capitol over the weekend.

Unfortunately, it seems like there's been a loss of life of just something tragic happened with a private aircraft, but just some bizarre events over the weekend. We'll get to on the Secula Brothers podcast this week with a brother from a different mother joining us, Will Haynes. Usually he was producing all of our shows. You hear him a lot anyways and he's part of the shows a lot.

I did want to play that. Jim Comey kept going. He talks a lot. When you give Jim Comey the opportunity to talk, he doesn't talk in soundbites. It's like he likes to give a full... He's like Jeff Daniels playing Jim Comey as Jeff Daniels.

It just goes on and on and on and on. He wants to be in an Aaron Sorkin show of some kind, but he's not. And he still thinks he's God. This guy still thinks he's at least God's gift to America. So take a listen to this one. He gets these very simple once-in-its questions from Jen Psaki and then he's got this whole hypothetical on how Donald Trump is going to take us down, ignore the Supreme Court.

I mean, literally, the jumps he makes here are significant, but he's already come up in his mind. I mean, hey, maybe Donald Trump should listen. Maybe there's a good plan on how to go after Jim Comey because he's writing it out for us.

Take a listen. You've said that Trump poses a near existential threat to the rule of law, and this is something, similar language that I hear privately from national security officials. Some people, you and I both know, who will say this privately about what a second term could mean. But tell me a little bit about the specifics of what he could try to do.

What do you mean by that? Well, think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like. He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I'm sure I'm on the enemies list because the President constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. And so he could commission direct that individuals be pursued. He could also direct all kinds of other conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop. But who enforces court orders?

Mostly the United States Marshals Service, which is in part of the executive branch and reports to the President. OK. Andy, I would just walk us through this. This is what a hypothetical this is that Donald.

First of all, I think Donald Trump, if he's reelected, he's going to come into office. You know what his least problem is? Fire Jim Comey, who doesn't have any power anymore.

He doesn't. You know what his big problem is? It's got war in Ukraine, issues with China, issues with our economy, inflation, trying to get America back on track, trying to piece together the Middle East that was being pieced together very well under the Trump administration. It's now unraveling.

We have more on that later today. But Jim Comey wants his focus to be him. And he's written out his whole play in his head about how Donald Trump can go after him, even if the Supreme Court tells him no.

Yeah. He's he's scared to death of what Donald Trump may do to him. He doesn't care about what Donald Trump may do in favor of the United States of America as a world power. He says, well, he's going to get me. That's what you all got to worry about. You better vote for Biden because he's going to get me. And he gives all these scenarios about how he's going to get him, how he's going to ignore the Constitution. He's going to get the Marshall Service involved.

They're going to be prosecuting individuals that Trump targets. What about the other things that are being ignored? What about fuel prices? What about food prices? What about the situation in Russia and the Ukraine, as you point out, Jordan? What about the Abraham Accords that were bringing economic prosperity to the Middle East and have been abandoned?

What about Arab-Israeli relations, generally speaking? What about the things that matter to individuals? Jim Comey doesn't care about any of that. He cares about himself.

He gets on MSNBC and he talks about himself. Oh, it's going to be terrible. He's going to very much a presidency like Donald Trump's is going to be terrible and horrible for who? For me, because he fired me and he's going to come after me and all individuals that he's going to have retribution for. Let me tell you, Donald Trump doesn't care about that.

That's over with and done. He cares about the country nationally, things that Joe Biden would not be competent to think about. That's the things that a presidency, in my estimation, would bring back. And of course, he can't let up on the fact that the Russians, they would not, they would love to have President Trump back. That's what Jim Comey said.

Take a listen to this one. Given his affinity for Putin and his outlook on the war, do you expect or should we expect Russia to interfere on his behalf in 2024 if he's the nominee? Yes, of course. I mean, Vladimir Putin does not want Joe Biden to be President of the United States, for reasons that I hope the American people see, because he acts in our national interest. He would very much like Donald Trump to be President again, because Donald Trump is, for reasons I still can't explain, very, very fond of Vladimir Putin.

He has said in his speeches that stop calling these people crazy and insane. They are smart. You can be evil and be smart.

They are cutting. They have ruled for decades. They've been able to keep a hold on their people, and they have stayed in power, so don't underestimate their strength.

That does not mean I love them. That just means know your enemy, know who you're negotiating with. And by the way, did Jim Comey not listen to the fact that Donald Trump said he would literally, his work between transition if he became President and taking the oath, would be making sure that war in Ukraine was ended. But you see, they see that as being pro-Putin now, that war coming to an end.

And let me tell you something. Who didn't invade countries when Donald Trump was President, but did invade countries every time Joe Biden was in the executive branch? Russia. They took over Crimea when Biden was vice President. Russia invaded Ukraine when Biden was President. Why didn't they do that under President Trump? They were scared of President Trump. So yes, he plays up a relationship.

It's a relationship that works. Why these guys love full-scale war, want to put us on a path to invading Russia, which is exactly what they're doing right now, is sickening to the core of our country. But they are the leaders of mis and disinformation. The fact that he just comes out and says, are the Russians going to interfere in the election? Absolutely, yes.

That's like Adam Schiff. We still don't have a lot of evidence on that except for some Russian bots on Twitter. I mean, we're still obsessed with Russia and the interference of Russia in the election.

Let me tell you, folks, and let's get this straight. Russia did not interfere in the election. That is nonsense. The Mueller investigation did not show any of that.

No one has shown that. The Russians did not interfere in the election. The election was otherwise decided.

It was not decided by Russia. And the fact that he says, I respect Putin, and I understand how he operates does not mean he likes him. Look, Churchill dealt with Stalin. He had to deal with Stalin. He didn't like him. He knew what Stalin was, but he dealt with him because they respected him as a leader and vice versa when you were dealing with Roosevelt and with Churchill.

And it's the same kind of thing. You don't have to like national leaders, but you have to respect them because of what they are. And I don't think that Putin would have invaded the Ukraine if Donald Trump was President of the United States at the time. Why? Because he scared the death of Trump. That's why. As you pointed out, Jordan, all these invasions, Crimea under Obama, the Ukraine under Biden, they did it because of the weakness of the United States.

Ain't the case with Donald Trump as President. You know, folks, we work on all these issues with the ACLJ. Of course, we live these issues working with the President of the United States, but also continually do so through our ACLJ Government Accountability Project and our FOIA work as well. Support the work of the ACLJ financially at ACLJ.org.

That's ACLJ.org. We've got a second half hour coming up. Give us a call. We're going to start taking a lot more of your phone calls. There's a lot more to talk about.

1-800-684-3110. We're getting some more politics as well. We'll be right back on Sekulow. Keeping you informed and engaged now more than ever, this is Sekulow. And now your host, Jordan Sekulow. Welcome back to Sekulow. We are taking your phone calls to 1-800-684-3110.

That's 1-800-684-3110. Before we get into news on Saudi Arabia slashing the oil supply and Tony Blinken saying, oh, we don't want peace between the Israelis and the Saudis because what about those Palestinians? So we want to still use that as a wedge issue to keep the Jewish state of Israel at odds with the Saudis, which by the way, have worked together undercover secretly with their security operations, really for decades. So they have a longstanding relationship just like the United States does with Saudi Arabia. But he doesn't want to see an Israel-Saudi peace deal as part of those Abraham Accords if we don't deal with the Palestinians. Why is he instructing the Saudis? He doesn't have to say, you know what, if we haven't dealt with all the Palestinian issues, you can't make a deal with Israel.

Maybe the Saudis have said, you know what, Palestinians, you've been given opportunity after opportunity after opportunity to make things right and you keep failing. So we're going to move forward as a country. And when you actually want to come back to the negotiating table and act like adults, yeah, we'll be there for you. We'll assist.

But we're not going to ignore the world moving forward while you stay in 1955. I think that's really important to point out. So we're going to get into that as well. But Will, I do think we should take some of these phone calls. People, hold on. Yeah, let's go to Rob calling from Michigan on Line 1.

Rob, you're on Sekulow. Thank you, sir. Yeah, I want to add another book that you guys need to read as well. The book that I mentioned to your screener is called The Red Thread, the search for the ideological drivers behind the anti-Trump coup by Diana West. In that book, she quotes Comey as saying, I'd move from communist to whatever I am now. I am not sure even how to characterize myself politically.

Maybe at some point I'll have to figure it out. The other book I mentioned I need to mention is called The Naked Communist, which was published in 1958 by an FBI agent by the name of Klean Skousen. In that book, he had a list he called the goals of the communists. One of the goals was to discredit, dismantle the FBI. Rob brings up that that quote, and it was also in a New York magazine article titled Mr. Comey goes to Washington from 20 years ago.

So this is I mean, it's it's out there. And he was talking about his political background, how he's a Republican. But he he moved from a communist to being a Reagan voter. But he also voted for Carter before that.

And then he ping ponged around quite a bit. But what is interesting is it seems like some of those communist roots may still be alive and well with him. The way that he would, you know, leak compromise to the press on on the President United States or maybe using the bureaucracy to go after entire ideological groups. That's where I really hear this is Andy, is that that communist leaning that he might have and that he might still like from some of that ideology read is that the state, not the individual leader that got elected by the people, but the state should have the power. The FBI should have the power, not the President, because when you have the President with power, that's that's too much like the representative democracy which we have here in the United States of America.

We don't really want that. We really want the state actors who are unelected telling everybody what's best. That's what Comey thinks and that's what Comey believes. It is the state in the bureaucracy. It is the the empire, in other words, that has been entrenched for years that needs to tell you what to do and how to do it. And that's the way that he sees President Trump as being a threat to that entrenched bureaucracy, of which I'm afraid is show shows, you know, Soviet roots, the Soviet roots of the state as being the center of all hope and all elitism. So that's what happens.

Yeah. His version of a rogue President going rogue is the President going after and trying to rein in the state apparatus, not going after the people. When you hear that, that's kind of trying to tell people he'd go after the people. No, he's trying to help the people by go after the state apparatus. You help the everyday American by making sure the state apparatus isn't out of control when they try to come after you for, you know, whether it's the IRS banging on your door because you're a whistleblower to Congress.

I mean, the list goes on and on here. We've seen it with pro-life protesters, with the FBI showing up to them. A student, you know, school board meetings and the FBI showing up there. This is not where the FBI trying to infiltrate traditionalist Catholic churches instead of focusing in on the drug cartels, the number one cause of death in America right now. It's not terrorism. It's not Islamic extremism. It's fentanyl. And it's not domestic violent extremism. It's fentanyl. You know where it comes from?

China and then through our southern border. That's where their number one focus should be at the FBI. We'll be right back on Secular. Welcome back to Secular. You know, when the world could become a safer place, Tony Blinken's got to step into it.

We'll get to that in just a minute. I do want to take another call on the FBI. When Jim Comey rears that ugly head, it's like, can't he just go away?

He's written some books. Some like nutty liberal college. Will you just hire him so he can just stop feeling like he's got to insert himself in the nation's politics? I would imagine Republican or Democrat, don't take your political advice from Jim Comey. Like Democrats either. He's telling you the only option you have is Joe Biden.

You got RFK Jr. too. I bet he doesn't like him though. Because he also questions, well he certainly questions the CIA and his own family. What may have been state sponsored executions as he believes. So I guess RFK Jr. would be off the list for Jim Comey. Because he certainly questions the FBI and the CIA and the roles they played and his uncle and even potentially his father's own murders.

So I think, again, he's off the list but he's growing in popularity. This is the guy who's like, stick with Joe Biden because he doesn't mess with the deep state. We protect him. We identify all the bad info about him that we get in our investigations as Russian disinformation.

He loves it and he lets us do whatever we want. So if we want to go after those school board speakers and crazy Catholics, we can. And we get to ignore the crisis from Fentanyl. We get to ignore actual violent crime and we get to knock on your door if you're a congressional whistle blower while you're testifying before Congress. So we love Joe Biden because he just lets us do what we want. That's the kind of President you want.

He doesn't provide any check at all on the bureaucracy. Let's go back and take this call. Yeah, we're going to go to Gary from Washington State on Line 2. Hey Gary, welcome to Sekulow.

Thank you for taking my call. I just wanted to know, I've seen this interview with Comey, when does it start? Sooner or later, they have to be investigated. This has to end.

That's the most important part. It just has to end. What it will take is a President like President Trump and it has to be that same bolt who is going to be willing to disrupt the deep state of Washington. And some of it's not even the deep state. Some of it's just the bureaucrats and the elites in Washington.

You've got to be able to go in. You need Congress to help you pass laws to make it easier to clear these members out so that every time you fire them, they can't sue you. Or every time you fire them, you end up with a special counsel. You need clearer laws to say bad bureaucrats, just like bad employees at a company, can be fired and they don't get to sue you just because they got fired for being bad at their job.

And I think, Andy, that's what it takes. It's going to take a mix of a bold President, and I think we have a few candidates running in the Republican side for that, that needs Congress to back them up with the laws to really be able to clear house at these executive branch agencies that have gotten out of control. Clear house is the word, and it's a really big house clearing. President Trump attempted to do this. This was one of the things that he wanted to do to drain the swamp, but let's say Comey and his ilk were part of an effort to discredit President Trump from the day he took office. Before he took office. Not from the day he took office, but before he took office.

And that continued. Every single thing that he attempted to do to clean out the bureaucracy, to clean out the imperial general staff that has been entrenched in there, they opposed him at every turn. Remember, Biden has been in Washington for 50 years since he was a senator 30 years ago from Delaware. He's been in Washington 50 years, and this guy is not giving up power and Comey loves him because he represents the epitome of that leader that can be manipulated to do what the bureaucracy wants to be done. That is the key here.

This is not Comey's aim is to keep the bureaucracy in place and protect himself from prosecution for the misdeeds that he performed. Watch for your gas prices to go up, because since we've cut all domestic production here in the United States so significantly and made it more difficult to start new production, because the Saudis have decided, you know, the Biden administration hasn't been too good to them. They're going to stick it to him again. Saudi Arabia said just Sunday yesterday it would cut 1 million barrels of oil a day as part of a deal between OPEC and its allies. This was one of the most contentious production meetings in recent years amid concerns over a slowing global energy demand. So the output cut was for July and on top of previously announced curbs would be extended until the end of 2024.

So this again will have a serious impact. I mean, how much of the domestic reserve for the emergency use are we going to have to unload because Joe Biden won't let us actually find, you know, if you just find new sources, if you reopen the construction of Keystone, prices start dropping before the oil even flows, because it's all based on futures markets and predictors like that. Right now when Saudis say we're cutting back for at least the year through 2024, that's going to, again, this is the middle of summer, the prices are already going up, and I feel like the prices are going to continue to go up. But we have an administration that isn't really willing to rebuild the relationship with the Saudis, and they're willing to stand in the way of a historic peace deal. I cannot think of a more historic peace deal than one that would involve the Jewish state of Israel and Saudi Arabia, which is the birthplace and home of Islam. It is where Mecca, you know, Medina and Mecca, and of course these two countries that both oversee, and they do it together, actually, the Dome of the Rock. And there's not often a lot of credit given to where it's actually Israel and a Saudi delegation that oversees the security of the Dome of the Rock together to make sure that Muslims are able to worship there peacefully, safely, and securely.

And that always gets overlooked in their relationship. It's a much better relationship than it seems on paper, but Blinken wants to stand in the way. That's right, and I think we should play two bites from Secretary Blinken, because he was speaking to AIPAC this morning, and the first one sounds kind of good. It is what most of the headlines coming out of his speech were reflective of, but I think there was some lazy journalism, and a lot of people missed the caveat he added to it. So first we're going to play bite 11 of him talking about normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia. The United States has a real national security interest in promoting normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia. We believe that we can, and indeed we must, play an integral role in advancing it.

Sounds wonderful. Hey, it sounded like he's going back to say, you know what, those Abraham Accords that we kind of have been doing nothing with, maybe we should restart using those since it works so well for the Trump administration. It shouldn't be a partisan issue at all. This is about making America safer and our allies safer, so I don't care if it's President Trump doing it or the Biden administration doing it, because it benefits everyone. It benefits us economically. It keeps our country safer, but he didn't stop there, Will.

See, that's the problem. He didn't stop with let's encourage it. Let's kind of do what the Trump administration was doing, which is let's make it first about an economic interest, and then maybe even more tourism so more Muslims can visit their holy sites, and Jewish business people could go to Riyadh or even think about investing there, building jobs there. But no, no, no, we really are nowhere close to the US wanting it to be there. That's right, and he goes back to the old John Kerry, really the playbook for Democrats as far back as you can remember, by adding a condition to this, and this is the part we want to key in on.

It's by 12. Integration and normalization efforts are not a substitute for progress between Israelis and Palestinians, nor should they come at its expense. So again, what he is saying is that there should not be a peace deal between or any kind of integration and safety framework with Israel and Saudi Arabia unless the, I guess we call it the Palestinian question, is solved once and for all, which by the way, talking about a question that's been going for thousands of years, depending on how you want to look at history.

And even in modern history, you could say over 100 years, and because one, there's not one Palestinian, there's two, it's divided. One part is controlled by a terror group, Hamas, the other is by a former terror group in the West Bank, and they have been unwilling really to negotiate. Other Arab countries haven't been able to deal with them either, they got kicked out of Jordan.

The Egyptians want nothing to do with them because they come in and they cause riots and violence and they support terrorism against those leaders, against other Muslims. And they make partnerships like with Iran, like Palestinian Islamic Jihad, but he's saying it, unless you solve that, which by the way, very difficult if not impossible to solve, when you don't have a party or two parties on the Palestinian side willing to even come to the table. So that until that happens, then I guess, Andy, the Saudis can't make a decision and say, you know what, we've been supporting the Palestinians since our existence. They will not take our advice and make a deal with Israel, but we are willing to make a deal with Israel because we see a bigger and better interest in dealing with such a strong economy, putting aside some of our religious and political differences. We think we can make a stronger Middle East that could stand up to Iran if we partner with Israel. That's the key here is economic prosperity by partnering and that's what the Abraham Accords attempted to do.

It promotes economy, it promotes tourism and things of that nature. Why this passion, this passion on the part of Blinken and Biden for the Palestinians who can't even get together themselves, who are a terrorist organization, and yet we have that passion and we're willing to substitute a Saudi-Israeli accord because of our passion. And our desire to protect the Palestinians who are themselves unable to do anything. Do you know how many years it would take before the Palestinians could even try to figure out who would lead that delegation to negotiate? I don't know if they ever could come to an agreement.

We'll be right back. Take your calls on Sekulow 1-800-68431 to support our work. Donate today at ACLJ.org. We have an office in Israel.

We have a direct interest in all of these peace deals. Welcome back to Sekulow. We are taking your calls to 1-800-68431. I want to get into a little political news in a second because the RNC has set their rules for their first debate. That was the debate in Milwaukee this August and now it looks, I don't know, I think we already have close to a dozen.

Seems like at least a 10. If not, it looks like there's going to be more. I think Pence announces this week. Chris Christie announces officially this week. Mike Pence filed the paperwork today, but also Chris Sununu told CNN during this hour that he is declining to run for President.

So that does drop one of the potentials. It reopens New Hampshire to really a battle between, I think, DeSantis and, of course, Donald Trump. Because Sununu would have garnered a significant amount of votes if you were a campaign. You'd have to think, okay, home state, governor of a small state, how much are we going to put resources in here? Or are we just going to write it off as, of course, he's going to win and you move on. So now he's decided he has no path to victory. There's some things I like about Chris Sununu.

Some of the things I don't like about him are his stance on abortion, specifically in life. But again, he's out now, so that should make New Hampshire more interesting. But I do want to take some phone calls as well before we get into just the interesting, because we talked about it with Sean Spicer once, about how this needs to be done. We don't know about the details about who will get to ask the questions yet, but we do know how you'll make the debate stage. We'll get to that in just a minute. Yeah, we're going to go to Matthew calling us from Nevada on Line 1. Matthew, welcome to Sekulow.

Hi. Yes, I have to disagree with you about what you said about the Saudis being at odds with the Biden administration. Because without the Biden administration, there would be no war in Ukraine because Biden cut off the oil production, which increased the price of oil, which funds the war in Ukraine. And so with the Saudis cutting oil production, it's keeping the prices of oil up so that the war can continue.

So they're working hand in hand. Biden and the Saudis, and this makes Biden look better too, because it increases his appeal in the United States because it's not just him causing these oil prices to go up. Yeah, again, so you're saying that the Saudis cut oil production and then Biden can blame them instead of blaming the war in Ukraine. I think is what I'm trying to understand there. Listen, I'm not sure the Saudis like, they're not real big on instability.

Because their markets, their financial, they're such a financially invested country with their investment funds and the Saudi National Fund and the oil of course. I'm not sure that they love unpredictable warfare that has no necessary end in sight. I do think, well, of course, they're going to capitalize.

Sure. I do agree to that extent. Like if events happen outside of their control in the world and they're able to capitalize on it to increase their coffers, they will. And I think early in the war, they may have been looking at that potential because of all the U.S. sanctions against Russian oil and things of that nature. But this was reported just four days ago on June 1st that the Russian crude oil imports by China and India in May of this year hit an all time high.

So that's not helping us out. No, it says it reduced the demand for oil from the Middle East and Africa, which I think led to this new OPEC move where they're like, listen, we're going to cut production because the Russians are still able to sell their oil to China and India. The Chinese and the Indian government are getting it at discounted rates from Russia as they're trying to offload to them, which is driving down the demand for the Saudi oil. So Saudi Arabia is saying, hey, we're cutting back on production. That'll raise the prices.

They're going to try to offset some of their losses they're seeing in the other parts of the world. You know what I think we're going to do, too, with the debate. We've got a secular brothers podcast this afternoon. I'd rather spend more than just a few minutes is all we've got left on the broadcast day because I think it's very important how this first Republican Presidential debate is going to lay out, like who is going to come, who might not come and why. We've got all the rules now in place about how you can qualify for the debate stage.

There's multiple ways to do it. I'm going to save it for the secular brothers podcast. We put that up. It goes up about 4 p.m. Eastern time today on wherever you listen to podcasts or you can watch it just like this show but a lot more casual at places like Rumble, Facebook, and YouTube as well.

So check that out today. We'll lead off with the Republican debate and kind of, again, because whatever Republican candidate you're interested in, you'll want to hear this to know what they've got to do to qualify. We've also heard from some candidates who said, I don't care what you have to do to qualify. I'm leading so far ahead.

Why would I get up there with 14 of these people to take shots at me? So could there be a side debate and negotiate it? I won't even deeply get into that right now but I do think it's possible at least one candidate would really want that. And it's not Donald Trump. That's what I'll tell you right now.

It's not Donald Trump necessarily who would really want that but another candidate. So we will, again, we'll get into that in the secular brothers podcast. Let's keep taking the calls that have come in throughout all the topics we've discussed so far on the show today.

Right. Let's go to George Ann calling from Virginia on Line 2. George Ann, welcome to Sekulow. Thank you for taking my call. Thanks, George Ann.

Okay. I have a question regarding the Durham report and anything pertaining to the 2016 election. There are attorneys that are on news media that are saying that the statute of limitations has run out, nothing can be done. But what about the date of discovery that the representatives, Comer and the other representatives received this report? So you're talking, I guess, I think about the FD 1023 FBI for which is, again, just when a confidential informant comes to the FBI with information. They don't even know yet and nowhere is anyone alleging that the information is accurate or not. They have two questions, Andy, for FBI.

One is, did you investigate it or did you just toss it in the file as Russian disinformation? That's really what they want to know. Right. That's it and that's what they're pursuing. They're using it to prosecute?

We'd be way far away from that. More like an impeachment, actually. Well, I think so.

I don't think that that's it. There's no timeline on that. No, there's no timeline on that. And the date of discovery, there's no statute of limitations that runs until you discover something. The statute of limitations does not run until it becomes known and then you calculate that from that time forward.

Yeah. Well, and to clarify for listeners as well what George Ann was asking, the FBI is the one who had this in their possession. The oversight committee isn't law enforcement. Their job here is to look at the oversight of the FBI to make sure the FBI is conducting law enforcement.

And if there were a question, where did they run out the clock? That could be something that the oversight committee could then decide how they're going to fund the FBI going forward if they're doing political investigations. That's the important letter they sent last week.

How many FBI agents are working with Jack Smith, the special counsel going after Donald Trump, on the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago? Now the Pence one, that got closed. So how do you close that without closing the one on Biden and Trump and just moving on and letting America decide who they want to vote for for President of the United States?

That would be my preferences. Let's move on and let Americans decide. But he asked directly how many of the agents working with Jack Smith worked on the Trump investigations. I can't wait to know that.

Because I have a feeling it's not going to be zero. It's going to be because these are the people out of Maine headquarters and then the Washington, D.C. field office. Those are the two main offices that were used to always investigate Trump. And that's where Jack Smith is getting his people from. Because those people, as we talked to Rick Grenell about, worked on an investigation they know was bogus and false from the very beginning and never said anything about it. Rick went so far as to say they should be fired from their jobs because they make the FBI look so bad. But how many new Peter Strzok's and new Lisa Page's are still within the FBI working to try and bring down Donald Trump?

Jim Jordan's got that question out there. We should have an answer to that soon as well. Remember to check out the Secular Brothers podcast. We're going to get into the first Republican debate. It is this summer, folks. Not long away. Support the work of the ACLJ. Donate today. ACLJ.org. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
