Listen: President Trump, President And Robert Muller discussed on Online Trading Academy
"You on a Saturday night on NewsRadio KLBJ Kenya Ron Meyer. Thanks a lot for being with us on the weekends here. On kale BJ? I mentioned right at the top of the show. It was one of the big announcements from President Trump before he went to the army navy football game today. President Trump said he is replacing his chief of staff. John kelly. Kelly is going to be out by the end of the year. Not sure who's gonna take that spot. But President Trump said will know very soon. And the other breaking news late this afternoon was the transcripts from the former FBI director James Comey's testimony before that congressional committee yesterday the transcripts have been released. It was a seven hour meeting. A lot of frustration on the part of lawmakers in attendance, at least some on the Republican side. Who said that call me was consulting with his attorneys. Allot wasn't able to answer a lot of questions. Fox News reports. Call me said he didn't know. Seventy one times in response to some of the questions. Here's what we know. So far. About the Komi testimony. From yesterday. There are lengthy lines of questioning that relate to the anti-trump dossier. That was used to secure a surveillance warrant for Trump campaign aide in the fall of two thousand sixteen and this is a remarkable exchange between Komi and the chairman of the oversight committee, Trey Goudy, Trey Goudy ass while you were director. You never knew that the DNC hired a law firm that hired an opposition research firm that hired Christopher Steele. Christopher Steele was the author of the anti-trump dossier. And it's now well established that dossier was paid for by the DNC Clinton campaign, and it's one of the foundational pieces for the surveillance warrant on Trump campaign aide, and Mr. Comey says no, I don't think so I don't have any recollection of being told that or reading that we're learning that while I was direct. So to me this falls in the same category as the molar special investigation. The sentencing documents that were released yesterday. How many people have really stayed up with all this over the course of the many months. And r really hanging with to the extent that they know what's going on even when they hear a good succinct recap from some of the news networks. On the Komi documents. They're still pouring through the transcripts to see. If there's any other big news at. Came out of those discussions yesterday. And as I mentioned Komi appeared under subpoena yesterday, and he's going to be back for more in front of that same committee on December seventeen Democrats said the investigations. Are just a distraction from the special counsel, Robert Muller's. Russian investigation. Mentioned a Republicans some of them at least were unhappy with commes level of cooperation because he consulted with a couple of attorneys in the room frequently and said, he didn't know the answers to many of the questions that he was receiving. So just like the Muller. Sentencing documents from yesterday. More testimony from Komi is still over a week away. So stay tuned. Right. We gotta wait till the smoke clears. Now, not all of us are waiting. Of course, I'll play some clips in a moment as I mentioned, some of the cable news networks last night were we're doing cartwheels very much like on the night of the midterm elections. When it appears it was gonna be a tough night for some Republicans. I mean, they were just salivating they were drooling at their prospect. That maybe this is going to get Trump once and for all one way or another. I'll have that for you coming up here. On kale? BJ? Meantime, here's this a couple of wraps on Manafort and Cohen what we've learned from the sentencing documents, and where things might go from from here what we can see in the section. That's public is that the allegation that he violated his plea agreement. Pardon me with a special counsel was over his contact with the White House in the administration to episodes in the spring of twenty eighteen we don't know what the substance of those contacts was about. But they said that was a violation. What kind of has my attention at this point is the section. That's under seal. You know, that means it is not public and whether that relates to anything in this campaign period or the transition period. President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen may be facing as much as three and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to giving hush money to women who claim to have had affairs. With the president Cohen get sentenced next Wednesday on eight charges, including violating campaign finance laws on top of that court filings from prosecutors in New York as well as special counsel, Robert Muller's office show what had been previously undisclosed contacts between Trump associates and Russian nationals. But White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders says the government's filings of Mr. Cohen's case, tell us nothing of value that wasn't already known in Washington gel NATO, Fox News. Yeah. So some denials from the Trump administration as you might expect yesterday from the White House press secretary as you just heard and today from the president himself again as he was out on the lawn of the White House before leaving for the army navy game. Here's a couple of comments that the president had about those Muller. Sentencing documents released yesterday on the situation, we're."
