Wednesday, August 26, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Congressman Mike Pompeo, a member of both the House Intelligence Committee and the Select Committee on Benghazi, joined me in the second hour of today’s show, and gave a pretty detailed roadmap of what is ahead, and all of it is bad news for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

Transcript:

HH: Welcome back America. It’s Hugh Hewitt. Joined now by Congressman Mike Pompeo, a member of the House Intelligence Committee. He represent great district in Kansas – Kansas 4th. Congressman, welcome back. It’s great to have you back.

MP: Hugh, it’s great to be on the show.

HH: I am alarmed by the number of people with sensitive compartmented information outside of skiffs – special facilities for the use of compartmented information. Are you scratching your head at how it managed to get into – I mean, David Kendall is a lawyer, but that doesn’t mean you get to give him his SCI stuff.

MP: It’s absurd Hugh. We still don’t frankly have a handle on exactly the chain of custody of how exactly this material moved around, and your point is well taken. We give some level of clearance to attorneys for particular matters, but still have handling requirements attached to the information transfer and top-secret SAF information goes only to a very few. It appears Mr. Kendall didn’t have that.

HH: Has the FBI approached the committe as sometimes happened the Benghazi Special Investigation Committee of which you were a member and asked you not to proceed because you’ll interfere with their investigation or compromise the indictability of some people?

MP: Our committee continues to move forward, Hugh. We’re still working. We still got a number of interviews. We have Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan – senior State Department employees that will testify next week, and so I intend to move forward October 22nd with former Secretary Clinton and lots of folks in between.

Transcript:

HH: From Donald Trump, I go to Ohio Governor John Kasich. They are, in fact, one and two in the latest New Hampshire polling. Governor Kasich, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show.

JK: I always enjoy doing your show, Hugh. You know, I really do. I always like it. I think you ask tough questions, and you’re very fair. And I appreciate it.

HH: Well, thank you. I was just talking, I was just talking with Donald Trump about religion in America. And I know your religious beliefs because of your book, Every Other Monday, that they’re sincere and deep. But here in Denver, I’m at Colorado Christian University today, the city council just voted to put on hold a Chick-Fil-A franchise at the Denver International Airport because of the religious beliefs of the people who own that restaurant chain. Now John Kasich, what is going on in this country? We’re built on religious liberty.

JK: Well, that’s really, that’s ridiculous, okay? All right, are you kidding? Well, you know, I mean…

HH: No, I’m not.

JK: I don’t understand it. I don’t, I don’t understand why they would do that. That’s just, that just doesn’t make any sense in the world to me. You know, we, we’re going through a lot of ups and downs on a lot of these issues, social issues. And frankly, to see a decision like that is very, very disheartening. It’s very disheartening. And you don’t want to do that, tell them they can’t have a, they can’t put a Chick-Fil-A in, why, because they’re people of faith? That’s just wrong. Continue Reading

Donald Trump joined me to open today’s program:

Transcript:

HH: I begin today’s program with Donald Trump, about whom everyone in America is talking. Donald Trump, welcome back, I say I’d start every show of mine with you, you’re such a ratings draw. So just be available more, would you?

DT: Oh, I’d love to, Hugh. How are you doing?

HH: I’m great. Now I want to get to the Jorge Ramos thing in a moment. I want to ask you first, though, because of a story this afternoon in the Huffington Post, you’ve said, you know, you wouldn’t run third party if the GOP treated you fairly. Are they treating you fairly so far?

DT: Well, I didn’t see any story in the Huffington Post. So I don’t know what story that is. What story is that?

HH: It quotes Michael Cohen saying that asked specifically if Trump would be making a formal announcement that he would pledge not to run third party, Cohen replied only Mr. Trump can sign that oath, and when he does, you can rest assured he will live by it. And Mr. Cohen indicated you had, you’d pretty much been happy with the way the GOP had been treating you.

DT: They have been treating me fairly, I think very fairly. And you know, maybe it’s, you see the kind of polls that are coming out. They’ve been so terrific and so high and so wonderful. The one that just came out in New Hampshire, a Public Policy has been, I guess it’s 35%, and way in the lead. And all of them, and so I’m very honored by that, and I will say that the RNC and the Republican Party, I think I’ve been treated very fairly over the last period of time, yes. Continue Reading
