FISA Memo: David Drucker says ‘We can end up with another special counsel’

While appearing on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” this morning, Washington Examiner Senior Political Correspondent and CNN Political Analyst, David M. Drucker, discussed the fallout of the FISA memo

“We can end up with another special counsel,” Drucker said. “…Given all the information that Republicans are bringing to light, given the complaints, the longstanding complaints, from Democrats, given how confusing  everything can be, I wouldn’t be surprised to see another special counsel.”

Hewitt responded, “I would welcome one,” citing his 2017 article calling for that very thing.

In that post, Hewitt wrote: “Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy wrote in National Review on Saturday that President Trump should call for a second independent counsel to investigate abuse of the counterintelligence authorities under President Barack Obama, abuses he suggests were undertaken to protect the controversial Iran deal on nuclear weapons.”

“This is an excellent idea. The new special counsel could also review Strzok’s texts and, more crucially, his conduct throughout 2015 and 2016,” Hewitt added in that column.

Drucker says the memo fuels Trump supporters and those on the right, who “believe he was treated unfairly and run with it” while there was “not enough” for Democrats to “drop their insistence that something was awry” with regards to the 2016 campaign. “If there’s more information…it should be uncovered,” but doesn’t think voters will think any differently.

Hewitt and Drucker close out their segment attacking Adam Schiff as the new Alan Grayson, making general Democrat talking points and the discussions of Rod Rosenstein’s firing or resigning: “Anything is possible,” Drucker squeaks in at the end.
