James Baker, a former top FBI lawyer, told congressional investigators on Wednesday that the Russia probe was handled in an "abnormal fashion" and was rife with "political bias"

We need more popcorn.  The circus is not only not leaving town, the main acts haven't even entered the ring!

" Baker was caught up in a leak probe last year surrounding news reports about surveillance techniques of an email provider that appeared to stem from a dispute between the FBI and National Security Agency. He was accused by Republicans, in a report published by Politico, of disclosing information about the Trump-Russia dossier to Mother Jones, a left-leaning media outlet. David Corn, the author of that story, has denied that Baker was his source.

"Baker was never charged with wrongdoing, but he was reassigned when FBI Director Christopher A. Wray took office. He left the bureau after a decades-long career this spring, and now works at the Brookings Institution think tank. "

This is the new star witness, who was not part of Mueller investigation team.

Right.  But he was a close advisor to James Comey.  He is reported to have coordinated the effort to exonerate Hillary Clinton.  He first refused to testify to the oversight committee.

Let's just see what Horowitz and Huber come up with - ok?

I'm all for waiting till the facts are known. Remember the two guys who said that they were the ones who assaulted Ford , and "proved " she was a liar?  You guys jumped all over that one.

Sure, but her previous boyfriend's letter is troubling.  And her relationship with Monica McLain is troubling, as was pointed out in another thread.  

And, then there is the claim that she is too afraid to fly .  .  .  maybe that was a joke??

From the same article quoted in the other post:

When asked about how Ms. Ford went about getting legal representation, Ms. Ford essentially responded she didn’t know what to do and had never been in a situation where complex political legal issues were part of her thinking. However, her life-long BFF was not only a lawyer – she was a career lawyer within the Department of Justice and as legal counsel for the FBI had specific insight into exactly these issues.

You could say, Ms. Monica McLean was/is a subject matter expert on exactly the issue that Ms. Ford was facing.

So why did Ms Ford give such a disingenuous response to the question?

Would you call Ms. Ford's answer about getting legal representation a lie?  I would.

What was the exact question, and what was her reply ?
