From the Trump campaign: 

Former Obama-Biden Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates is testifying to the Senate about the previous administration’s politically motivated targeting of the Trump campaign and transition, including that January 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting with President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Susan RiceBiden has still not come clean about what he said in that meeting about the Logan Act, and conveniently, today Yates claimed she does not remember what Biden said.

Why is Yates covering for Biden? Because she’s an anti-Trump, partisan Democrat. Yates endorsed Biden in March 2020 and participated in a fundraiser for his campaign. In November 2019, Biden said Yates could be his pick for vice president.

Yates joined the anti-Trump resistance as acting U.S. attorney general in January 2017, when she refused to defend in court a lawful policy decision by the president – a decision the Supreme Court predictably ruled was wholly legitimate.

Sen. Kennedy tells Yates that she and her colleagues have "tarnished the reputation of the FBI."

Yates to Sen. Kennedy: "No senator, I did not hate Trump!"

  • Julio Rosas | Aug 05, 2020 12:27 PM est

Yates says she would be "shocked" to find out people within the DOJ who would use their power to stop Trump from becoming president.

  • Cortney O'Brien | Aug 05, 2020 12:24 PM est

Sen. Kennedy: "You despise Donald Trump, don't you?"

Yates: "No I don't."

Yates believes it was unlikely Flynn would've been prosecuted under Logan Act. 

  • Cortney O'Brien | Aug 05, 2020 12:16 PM est

Sen. Tillis: Do you believe the DOJ can charge someone under the Logan Act?"

Yates: I've never engaged in that analysis...

FYI, whenever someone says people under them went rogue in government they're usually lying and covering their own behind

Hawley goes off:  I reach the conclusion that I seem to detect a pattern here. Miss Yates, she says she had no idea what her deputy was doing as he facilitates contact between opposition research and the FBI. She has no idea these materials she signed sled a FISA court. Nobody appears to know anything, and yet somehow a federal court was deliberately misled so severely they now say they can't trust anything the FBI did. If this does not call for a cleaning of house at the DOJ and FBI, I don't know what is. Bruce Orr is still on the payroll.

Hawley argues there needs to be a cleaning of house at the DOJ.

Hawley hammers Yates for her 'I know nothing'  attitude re Bruce Ohr

Good summary right there by Josh Hawley about FBI knowing about Christopher Steele's ties to the Democratic Party re Trump dossier
