Kash Patel and Jan Jekielek
Kash Patel: Here’s How Jim Jordan Can Set a Trap to Expose Collusion Between Big Tech and Intelligence Agencies
Feb 17, 2023
Recently, the New York Times published a lengthy piece claiming John Durham’s investigation was flawed and “failed to find wrongdoing in the origins of the Russia inquiry.” Subsequently, a number of congressmen have called for Durham and Bill Barr to be investigated. What’s really going on? “They do these preemptive strikes when they know something is about to happen,” says Kash Patel. We also discuss House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) investigation into the federal government’s collusion with big tech to suppress free speech. Jordan recently subpoenaed the CEOs of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta, and Microsoft. Patel says Jordan should also send subpoenas in the other direction—to the FBI and DOJ—for all communications, contracts, and agreements with the tech giants. “Once you run those two subpoenas on a parallel track, Jan, then you can get some real documentation and answers for the American people because someone is going to get caught lying,” Patel says. And finally, we take a look at the Chinese spy balloon, the other downed aerial objects, and the train filled with toxic chemicals in Ohio that recently derailed. Are these events connected? FULL TRANSCRIPT Kash Patel: Hey, everybody, and welcome back to Kash's Corner. We have a jam-packed episode, and if you can believe it, Jan, this is the last episode of season six. I cannot believe we have been going so strong for so long. It's been a great ride, and I can't wait for next season. But what are we going to talk about today to close it off? Jan Jekielek: It is a jam-packed episode, and we're going to have to talk about Russiagate again, because The New York Times came out with this preposterous whitewash of all the work that has been done by yourself and Devin Nunes to expose what happened with Russiagate. Then, we have the Columbia Journalism Review coming back and basically doing something that was a direct response to this whitewash in The New York Times. I didn't expect it. There's some pretty solid reporting there. I know you want to comment on this. We've got James Clapper coming in and basically criticizing Politico for its headline back in the Hunter Biden laptop days when this all came out. Kind of shocking, that's another thing I wasn't expecting. It wasn't on my bingo card, as people would say. I also think we need to talk about the further adventures of the Chinese spy balloon. Let's just touch on this New York Times piece. Basically, they're saying that Durham came up with nothing. Mr. Patel: Durham did not find nothing. What Durham found was the very core of corruption at the intersection of the FBI, and the deep state, and the media. Which is why the media is flexing so hard right now to try to knock him out. Remember Jan, they do these preemptive strikes when they know something is about to happen. We've covered it before, whether it's January 6th, or whether it's Russiagate, The New York Times ...
