Meadows: Deep State Whistleblowers Coming Forward, ‘Indictments on the Way’
'People need to go to jail, people need to be held accountable'
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) has revealed that "a lot of whistleblowers" are "coming forward" to assist Attorney General William Barr in his investigations into the origins of the Russia Probe.
While House Democrats continue clutching at straws from Mueller's Russia investigation, Republicans are looking into the origins of that investigation, and more specifically, what prompted the FBI to launch a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
House Oversight and Reform Committee member Rep. Meadows told Fox News's Sean Hannity Wednesday night that whistleblowers are starting to talk.
Meadows says people who "were afraid under previous leadership" have begun talking, and that he thinks "indictments are coming" and "people need to go to jail."
Speaking on the same day the Democrat-led House intelligence committee held a hearing titled, “Lessons from the Mueller Report," Meadows declared that deep state "players" involved in pushing the now-debunked Steele Dossier "need to be held accountable."

The committee hearing was called to "explore the significant counterintelligence threats to the U.S. democratic system posed by the numerous links and contacts between members of the Trump campaign, transition and administration, and Russia and its proxies, as documented in Volume I of Mueller’s Report."
Hannity asked Meadows, along with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), whether US intelligence officials outsourced spying on the Trump campaign to foreign allies.
"We don't know yet," Nunes, the ranking member of the intelligence committee, responded.
That's what AG Barr and "bulldog" Connecticut US Attorney John Durham are trying to find out, Nunes explains.
"We have a right to know what countries were involved in this," he added.
Meadows told Hannity:
"We’re getting a lot of whistleblowers, primarily whistleblowers are coming forward because they believe Attorney General Bill Barr and John Durham are willing to get to the bottom of it.
"So people that perhaps were afraid under previous leadership to actually say, well, we knew this was wrong, they’re coming forward now.
"And when we look at intelligence, we know the intelligence community shares a lot of information. What we also know…is that the Steele dossier, Christopher Steele, his dossier -- not only does it have his origins with Fusion GPS and the Democrat National Committee, but other players that are connected -- Sidney Blumenthal -- and they were shopping it to every media outlet that they possibly could and the FBI knew it.
"That’s the problem, the FBI knew it prior to that first FISA and here they are using it as credible information for a FISA application?
"I just think that that's totally wrong."

Hannity asked both men where they see the investigation going, and who should be worried:
Without mentioning them by name, Nunes said former FBI agents involved in text messages should be concerned, alluding to disgraced former agent Peter Strzok and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
Nunes added that those who ran "the dirty operations arms of the Clinton campaign" should have trouble sleeping at night.
“People need to go to jail, people need to be held accountable and I believe indictments are on their way," Meadows said.
