Suddenly, Baker’s lawyer, Dan Levin, jumped in: “One second,” he said before he and his client had a conversation off the record.
When the microphones were back on, Levin declared he would “not let
[Baker] answer these questions right now. You may or may not know, he's been the subject of a leak investigation which is still – a criminal leak investigation that's still active at the Justice Department.” And
so Levin concluded, “I’m sorry. I'm cutting off any discussion about
conversations with reporters.”
North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows wanted to make clear what Baker’s
lawyer was claiming: “You're saying he's under criminal investigation?
That's why you're not letting him answer?”
There should be a bunch of criminal investigations connected to all this. A bunch of these bastards broke laws, some of them have admitted it, and they need to pay for it.
