Matt Whitaker Unpacks the FBI Politization of the Mar-a-Lago Raid
"Really breaking news episode today. This is a special episode that we're going to be discussing what just happened yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, the raid or the investigation with the FBI into Donald Trump's classified information that came from The White House a lot going on with this. But could not think of a better person to sit down and talk with than my friend Matt Whit or former acting attorney general U.S. attorney. Going to get a lot of answers today. So Matt, let's just go straight into this. Let's give people what they need. Mascot to have you back on the podcast. Doug, I'm always enjoy the time we spend together. And I look forward to having you on my show, liberty and justice soon. Looking forward to liberty and if you folks, have you not sang liberty and Josh, you gotta get on it. I mean Matt is killing it with guests and in the topics they're discussing. Great stuff is we go, Matt, let's just go ahead and dive into it. There's no way around this. If you look at this, I mean, and we're still fresh into this, and a lot of hot takes going on here, but you know, this timing, the thing about this, when you were attorney general, 'cause number one, there's no way this could have gotten done without Chris wray or Merrick Garland knowing about it. What do you think the internal dynamics were that you could imagine inside DoJ with this? Well, I think the internal dynamics are pretty clear. I mean, there was a letter that was sent from the national archives that there was concern about president Trump's handling of presidential records after he moved out of The White House and there was an attempt to resolve that with the national archives and at some point in time this letter was sent to the FBI asking to open up a criminal investigation and that's exactly what the FBI did. You know, Doug, there's a lot of decisions, as you know, that were made in this situation, but I think the most concerning decision that was made was, and I'm sure it was approved by Chris wray and approved by Merrick Garland as attorney general. And that was the execution of a search warrant instead of sending a subpoena or instead of continuing to negotiate on this issue.
Still Little to No News in January 6 Hearings
"We also got on the panel last night to the one 6 hearing, and a big surprise, a big surprise for me. I learned something from the one securing history, cut number 23. What do you make of this hearing today and overall how these have kind of come out methodically? Well, today I learned something new. Something that's unusual. I learned that the assistant attorney general for the office of legal counsel, Steve engel. I've only met once and had a long conversation with once. But he very highly esteemed in Washington, D.C., and he served in that job four years for president Trump. When asked by president Trump what he would do if he fired the acting attorney general replaced him with a Trump oil is further down. He said, I'll quit. And the president backed off. That's news. That's the first time I've learned something from these hearings. And so the reason the public is fundamentally disinterested in what is going on in the Nancy Pelosi won 6 committee is that there is precious little news in these carriers. But when there is some, I notice it. And I know that the president got pushed back from one of his most trusted age and we ought to know that.

As you know, those of us that are comfortably on the right and those are from normal places like you said, north Georgia, central Iowa, and all parts in between. Know that the constitutional structure puts the power in the people. Not the courts. And that's

"acting attorney general" Discussed on WTOP
"To improperly alter the outcome of a 2020 presidential election. He it is expected to be a broad review that comes on the heels of revelation that then President Trump considered replacing his acting attorney general, with an official more agreeable to his unfounded claims of voter front. Joining us to talk more about how this will work in what the outcome might be. Is Washington Post National Security reporter Matt Sabotage Key. How you met. This revelation, first reported by The New York Times about what the former president may have tried to do is pretty jaw dropping for a lot of people. Can you recap a bit of what that means? What happened? So in kind of the final weeks in office, President Trump entertained this sort of outlandish idea that he would cast aside his acting attorney general. At the time, a guy named Jeff Rosen and replace him with a relative. No name lawyer named Jeff Clarke, who was Head of the environmental environment. Natural Resource is division and the civil Division of the Justice Department, simply because Clark was Maura amenable to pursuing these ideas the president had about voter fraud. So Clark was wanting the department to hold a press conference, saying they were investigating serious allegations of voter front when that was In fact, not true. Officials had said repeatedly that they had found no evidence of such thing. He wanted to take other particular steps in Georgia and because of his willingness to go along with that President Trump was going to install him as the acting attorney general. He ultimately didn't because Justice Department officials threatened to resign and mass and so the president abandoned the plan. So how with this IG investigation worked at the Justice Department Yes. So the inspector general is kind of like the internal watchdog for the Justice Department. You know, people probably remember him from investigating how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation How the FBI handled the Russia investigation so he'll dig into Justice Department files. Emails exchanged between Justice Department officials. To the extent he can. He will interview folks involved now. She has some limits, right? He's the Justice Department watchdog. His jurisdiction is the Justice Department so he can't really go looking at President Trump or other White House officials, except to the extent that they interacted with people at the Justice Department. He's also limited in that. Former Justice Department officials don't have to talk to him. The Justice Department inspector general has, you know sworn law enforcement people on his team? But if he's not doing a sort of law enforcement investigation, that does not seem to be the case here. It's not like he grand Juries people right. He can't force Jeff Rosen or Jeff Clarke, who are all now out of the department. You come talk with him, so he'll just go through e mails. To the extent these people voluntarily cooperate. He'll talk to them, and he'll just try to get a better picture of exactly what happened in these last several weeks of the Trump administration. So is that all people can really expect here to find out? What happened? Yeah, for the Justice Department Inspector General. What we're looking at is some kind of public report. Of course that could be consequential, potentially for people's law license is just for public knowledge of what happened. You know, for people's future political ambitions. This would reveal what was going on behind the scenes. Congress, You know. Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have also said they are investigating and They have subpoena power and maybe could get a little farther. But what you should expect from Michael Horowitz. That's the Justice Department inspector general from his review is some kind of public report that really tries to pull back the curtain on what happened, Matt, Thanks for your help on this. Appreciate it. Thank you. Washington Post National Security reporter Man Sabotage Key. It's 5 14. This'd.

This investigation will look at allegations concerning the conduct of former and current Justice Department officials, but will not extend to other government officials.

Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims
"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.

Court rules blocks Seattle's efforts to create supervised heroin injection sites
"Injection site for heroin users in Seattle suffers a setback because of an appeals court ruling in Philly King County Public Health greenlighted supervised injection sites three years ago, but an effort to find a fixed location like the ones of British Columbia failed. An effort to create mobile sites. Stalled plan now is not Tonto. Build standalone facilities instead, go with the drug users already go for help, like the Aurora Commons and let injections happen there under the supervision of a nurse. But Wednesday, the third Circuit Court of Appeals denied a Philadelphia nonprofits push to open up a fixed site. Thereby Seattle's plans are up in the air again. This is another wrinkle that we're gonna have to deal with the Justice Department, agreeing with the court's ruling injection sites violate the Federal Controlled Substances Act. That prohibits any person from knowingly and intentionally maintaining a place for the purpose of illegal drug use. The acting attorney general, saying injection sites are not the solution.

U.S. Justice Department investigating more than 170 people over Washington, DC riots
"Six days after the violent attack on the us capital law enforcement finally help the first federal press briefing about what happened. That is an acting attorney. General united states the podium or the director of the fbi not just the local guys acting us attorney the district kumble columbia and the assistant director in charge of the fbi. Washington field office to talk to the country on camera for the first time about the attempted insurrection against the us government at the capitol. And what they are doing to bring the rioters to justice. We have already opened one hundred and seventy more than one hundred seventy subject files meaning. These individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes on the capitol grounds inside and outside so of those one hundred and seventy cases that have already been opened in. I anticipate that's going to grow to the hundreds in the next coming weeks we've already charged over seventy cases just yesterday. Our office organizers strikeforce of very senior national security prosecutors and public corruption prosecutors. they're only marching. Orders from me are to build seditious and charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the capital some encouraging actions. There is still feels like things are not quite moving that quickly given the scope and stakes of what is at issue here and more importantly the impending threat of further armed assault politicos national security correspondent in touch with virtual joins. Me now natasha. I what what did you. What was your takeaway from the briefing today. Well it was clear that the fbi first of all was trying to do some cleanup on its own behalf. So the fbi official their emphasized that the warnings that they received were in fact shared with their state and local partners so they did share them with local law enforcement officials according to official. And that was i. Think an attempt to say look. We did our part of the job and it was up to say capital. Police are the members of the joint terrorism task force in washington. Dc to kind of put together. The security measures that were necessary in order to respond to the kind of violence threats and intelligence that they were that they were receiving. So i think this was part of what we've seen in the last week as a continuation of the fbi's attempt to say we did our job. Now the rest is up to you and then with regard to the attorney's office which michael sherwin was talking about. They want to say look. We are taking this seriously with regards to pursuing further charges. But take aways obviously is. We're not seeing the fbi director on stage not seeing briefings directly from the head of the fbi and from senior officials who might indicate to the rest of the country and to potential violent rioters. Who might come back to the capital that this is something that has gone to the highest highest levels of government that will not be tolerated. And i think that that is something that is also concerning some folks tonight. I mean it's a week after it happened six days and no i mean i don't know who runs the h s. Now chad wolf gone. Lord knows who's running that place. Fbi director chris. Wray the acting attorney. General jeffrey rosen image. Just it is shocking to me shocking. Inexcusable that we have not had a briefing. It's remarkable and national security officials who have spoken to have also said. Look you know one of the reasons why we might not be. Seeing them is because they might be afraid that they could get fired. You know in the week. That's left of this administration that speaking truth about this and the reasons why it was incited the realities of why these protesters came in and the capital would force them to lose their jobs and that you know take it at face value. Which is that. The president has never accepted his own officials. Speaking the truth about and and speaking In criticizing him anyway. So i think that's part of it.

Anthony Quinn Warner, a national area resident, had a similar make and model RV is the one in photos released to the public water described as a white male 63 years old. We're going live now to an FBI news conference from Nashville. I'm special agent in charge. Doug Corn, ask E. And then Mickey French. The special agent in charge of the FBI was a star. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms will also speak. Also joining us is Colonel Matt paired with the Tennessee Highway Patrol following the investigators update. Well, then hear from Mayor Cooper. At this time, I'll turn it over to United States Attorney Cochran Have known 2020 has been a tough year for Nashville. Started back in March with devastating tornadoes that we had the torch through some of our neighborhoods. Continued through the pandemic and the events of this past summer and now this Cowardly bombing on Christmas morning. Right here in the heart of our downtown. Yeah. When they haven't heard about Nashville use in the time I've lived here is that they're tough and they stick together as a team, and that's what we're doing now. And I want you to know that the team is behind me. And the folks that they represent are doing everything we can to. Find out what happened here to get the answers that you deserve. And to make sure that we're all safe. So One of the toughest groups of folks we've got here in middle Tennessee is our law, enforcement of first responders and nowhere in my experience in law enforcement. Has that ever been plainer to me and what happened early yesterday morning? 6 15 6 26 30 years. So on Christmas morning, Metro Nashville police officers just number of blocks north of here didn't run away from danger literally ran to danger. Vehicle that was announcing that it was going to blow up. And Metro Nashville police officers instead of heading in the other direction headed towards that. They evacuated that area got all the citizens out of there. I'm quite confident that their actions are part of the reason why there was less cost of life in this heinous act. Sorry. Yesterday morning we had a task force came together and it didn't No. One time thing. This is what we do all the time. The U. S attorney's office. We work together with our federal partners are state partners in our local partners. That's what immediately started happening yesterday. Teams of agents group together across agencies started handling leads its citizens are citizens were calling in. We've had over 500 leads and tips come in on every single one of those is being followed up by a team of investigators. That's the stage we're at in this investigation. We are still continuing to follow every lead that we have. On. We will continue to do so until we find out what's happened. We also have national resources here. The department justice, the acting attorney general has told me any resources we need. We can have the FBI and the A. T F have sent their most specialized bomb technicians here to Nashville. And as we speak, they are north of here, a number of blocks that he had a massive crime scene. Doing what they do. Doing frankly what they do better than anyone else in the world, and it's quite a challenge. Having been up there and seeing that scene, it's like a giant jigsaw puzzle created by bomb throws pieces of evidence across multiple city blocks. They've got to gather it. They've got to catalog it. They've got to put it back together and trying to find out what the picture of that puzzle looks like. But there's no one better to do it. Then the folks we've got on the ground here in Nashville, Tennessee, right now. So that's going on as we speak. The investigations of the Leeds was going on as we speak. I am Confident in the team. We have way will get to the bottom of this that we will find out the story of this individual or individuals. We don't know right now. But this this is ultimate Scrooge, who on Christmas morning instead of spreading joy and cheer decided to spread devastation and destruction. But We know how that story ends your Nashville. We're gonna stand together. We're gonna get back on her feet. We're gonna get our business is back up and running. We're gonna get our infrastructure and the cell coverage back up and running because that's what we do in Nashville. Thank you for your time. I

"Thanks for being here. It's the Mike Groom had show here until noon. And we appreciate you spending some time with US Attorney General William Barr will be gone before Christmas as resigning. His post will be replaced by Jeffrey Rosen. Now rose and served. His deputy attorney general, hey was confirmed in May so he'll step into the role. Um so President, Trump quoted saying Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen outstanding person, he said he will become, um, become acting attorney general, highly respected Richard Donahue. We'll be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you all. So, um This is going to be the final days. And why would William Barbee leaving? Why wouldn't William Barbee leaving? If I were William Barr? I get out too. You know, it's um You're going to get it on all sides. Listen, anyone that goes into politics understands. It's an ugly business. Um George W. Bush has a great sense of humor, and I heard him saying a speech after his presidency was over. That two things happen. You run for president and you lose and you were a horrible candidate or you run for president. You win and you're a horrible president. And he was right on both accounts. And so why anyone wants to do these jobs? I don't know, but they sign up for it. They understand It's an ugly business. But after a while, it's got to get monotonous. It has to be ugly when people That you trust and people that you care about. Um That kind of getting nasty with you. It's one thing to disagree. It's a completely different thing to have your character called into question. So when William Barr took the job with Donald Trump, he knew it was going to be ugly from the left. And it was. He was just a lapdog he was upon he was a henchman. He was pit bull. He was all of these things on the leash of Donald Trump. And then we find out that Hunter Biden has been investigate been under investigation for months. And the reason why it wasn't made public is because William Barr didn't want to cloud the election. Well, now, all of a sudden, all of those people that hated this guy with a passion talked about how great it was that he did that for the election. But the people on the other side of the aisle who have been talking about William Barr being a hero, all of a sudden, William Barr is bought and paid for it in on it. And that's the nature of what American politics does. And when it when people get this emotional, this is how bad it gets the average person in this country Doesn't care as much about politics as many of you out there on either side of the aisle, including myself. Which I learned a long time ago. The average person what they think of their government is I want my government to do what they're supposed to do. Fix the roads, build the infrastructure and leave me alone. Let me live my life. And that's on both sides of the political aisle. Government involvement when it comes to ideology as far as welfare programs versus laws that protect you from yourself and everything else. That's when ideology comes in. But the basic feelings about government you want to know why the average American knows so little, which is a scary thing about what we should know about our form of government. How brilliant it truly is. And why the Founding fathers did the things they did the civics classes we used to take when we were young. I just have to try to a class called Americanism versus Communism in high school. And that would be politically incorrect now to talk about why Americanism is a better form of government than communism. But that was a required social studies class. You have to know in Arizona. It's a good thing. You have to know a basic civics lesson In order to graduate from high school, you got to be able to take the citizenship test. That should be what every American should basically no And we don't the average American. I would guarantee that the average American couldn't name for Supreme Court justices probably doesn't know there's only nine Doesn't understand the concept between the House and the Senate. Why it's divided and what their what their roles really are what they were laid out to be. You know, naming the three branches of government and then explaining the basics of what they do. And yet everybody has a political opinion. And then those people that vote we act as if these are family members. I'll be honest. I wanted Donald Trump to win the election. I don't care. I mean, I don't know Donald Trump. Donald Trump's gonna be just fine. He's a billionaire Donald Trump is going to go back to a pretty good life. Whether he wins or loses this election. My concern is about what's best for the country. I vote for people that I think are gonna move my state in my city and my county and the best direction. To set us up for success. I don't think the government has any other role than the set us up for success. What I mean by that is opportunity, provide opportunity, not outcome opportunity. That's why I vote the way I do. But William Bar, served two times is the attorney general of the United States and neither time as he's shown himself to be a man of low character his character was never questioned. Never should have been first was questioned by the left when he joined the Trump team. Now it's being questioned by the right because He didn't out Hunter Biden did And this is a great question. Did the American people have a right to know? And should have been a part of their decision making that Hunter Biden is being investigated not just for Bary sma but for multiple deals with multiple countries and contact with Chinese spies. Is that something that was going to be, um, that would have helped or would have hurt Joe Biden unfairly, which I think is what what Bar said. I didn't want to influence the election with this investigation. Or was he making sure that it didn't become a spectacle? Because it's so serious that Hunter Biden needs to pay for mistakes he made. Who knows? But William Barr is being shredded by both sides of the political aisle. I would shrug my shoulders and leave too. I mean, he was one day he's a hero with one segment of the population the next day, he's a traitor. And at some point I would shrug my shoulders and say I'm out. I took this job to serve the country. I did my best. You may not have agreed with my decisions, but there's no need to shred me like you're shredding me. I'm out. And I would do the exact same thing. The problem is, there are good people that we're going to disagree with. And our behavior driving away Good people leaves the door open for the zealots that come in, and that's why we're in the condition. We're in sometimes. And I just hope that I hope that when this when January 20th comes the nations in a place where we don't have to agree, and I guarantee you with the Biden presidency, I wouldn't be calling them on the carpet for the stuff they do every day. But let's move on..

I think last night was probably the worst night so far, if you were even paying attention, and you know, with this only one hour coverage on the main news channels kind of broadcast news channels. I'm thinking this is not going to be moving the needle a lot. And that really hurts the challenger at the incumbent. Not so much if that's the same way next week, But the challenger needs the boost from this. He didn't get by. I did not get a boost from Kamala Harris. He actually went down in the polls. And now that it's difficult that heat in every battleground, state and national even in those national polls, and that was to see an import. But last night they let Sally Yates and maybe Joe Biden. It was kind of hard to tell if she was alive or not. But Sally Yates, certainly wass wherever she's former acting attorney general. She was fired by President Trump for refusing to enforce the law. But she lied about why she was fired last night to the American people who were paying attention. So if you if you didn't see this visit wasn't in that primetime hour. You've got to take us. Remember. That's the same Sally Yates, who's been testifying under oath about her role in unmasking And the potential illegal activities surrounding Mike Flynn, take a list. This is Sally Yates, addressing the nation last night at the Democratic National Virtual Convention. I served as deputy attorney general in the Obama bad in administration and stayed on his acting attorney general for the Trump transition, then 10 days in I was fired for refusing to defend President Trump's shameful and unlawful Muslim travel ban. That was the start of his relentless attacks on our democratic institutions and Countless dedicated public service. You know again, that is an outright lie is an outright live because why She refused to enforce. A duly enacted executive order. The executive order was challenged in court. And guess what the Supreme Court decided the executive order was legal. She got fired for refusing to enforce the law. And now she's still dad. She lied yet again. She lied about why she was fired. She called it unlawful. So is she now? Sally Yates, who I think by the way by putting her out there is a potential is Joe Biden saying This could be someone who I put the position of attorney general. Remember, he trust her. She was in the Oval Office meeting. With with Kobe and stroke and getting briefed on the Flynn matter and all the unmasking and the F B, I agents going all that stuff this spying on the Trump campaign. And yet she lies about why she's fired, then called something. The Supreme Court has said his lawful unlawful to the American people, which is a lie. And now that we have bad going on all around the country because of Cove, it Is she saying? Those are unlawful. I guess she is. But here's here's No. One her Zaid. She said that she was fired because she refused to force enforce the unconstitutional order that the Supreme Court of the United States Held was constitutional repeat. She said she was fired because of her refusal to enforce a duly authorized executive order from the president of United States, and she said that order was unconstitutional.

"Was the acting attorney general before she had to be fired for refusing to do her job. A holdover from the Obama administration in my mind, a very clear Democrat partisan and also quite involved in the targeting of General Flynn and Oh, my so Muchmore. She was down today, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. What are we finding out from her? And also where? Where does the effort to get some accountability for the crossfire? Hurricane debacle? Where does that stand? We got a man who can answer these questions with us now. Congressman Jim Jordan of the Great State of Ohio is with his congressman. Thanks for coming back to be with you. So what? What? What do we see today of what we need to know about Sally Yates as she's testifying today, her role in this Film over. Remember the big picture sense of the Democrats. I said this last week hearing with the attorney general Democrats have been going after Bill Barb because Bill Bar under the one word that crazy was truthful. He called. It's fine, and that's exactly what they did. We now know that for sure spied on president's campaign, No one else in the Justice Department was willing to call it. What it wass. You know, Rod Rosenstein wasn't Jeff Sessions wasn't and certainly the individual is testifying today in front of Senator Graham. And the Judiciary Committee. Sally Yates wasn't willing T say what really happened There they systematically went after the Trump campaign. And then when President Trump won, they systematically went after and targeted and actually got him fired and got him prosecuted. The the guy who was going to be the director for the President general Michael Flynn. So that that's me. Just in that broad sense. That's what's so wrong about this. She knew what went on. She wouldn't pointed out, and then she helped him go after Michael Flynn. Do we think that we're going to find out anything from the term investigation for everybody Listening? Appointed by the attorney General Bar Derm is the U. S attorney for the state of Connecticut. We've been hearing about this for many, many months. He's looking into the origins and the totality of The Russia collusion delusion known as Crossfire Hurricane run through the FBI connection, Jordan. You've been very involved in this all along from your side of things. Are we going to find out anything you think and is there going to be accountability? Well, that's about it. That's the more important question. We already know everything we already know Most everything we know that there was no proper credit Git. You know that They started the investigation on July 31st They were They Cynthy lady posing as someone else who used the name as churches and heard a smile. Papadopoulos, They've got the fake fiza the fraudulent Fiza, where they lie to the court 17 times to spy on. Carter Page. They went and tried to spy on the president with what we learned just a few weeks ago with this defensive briefing on August 17 so understand the timeline you open investigation July 31st 17 days later, you're spying on the president under the guise have given him a defensive briefing. As as you know, the Republican candidate for president, and you're already spying on his campaign, And I always say between July 31st in August 17th there were two important things that happened. There was the now famous text messages from struck the page, where he talked about the insurance policy. And then there was the other text message on the 15th where she asked him is Trump gonna win, He says No. No, we'll stop it. So those two text messages happening between the day they start investigation starts fine on President Trump and everything else So we know how bad it wass. We know the wrong they did. The key question is, Will people be held accountable? Will there be some indictments again? I think it goes all the way to the top. Because we know now this January 2017 meeting in the Oval Office with Obama fied Comey Gates. Samantha Excuse me, Susan Rice. We don't want to keep player there, so someone needs to be held accountable. We'll just have to wait and see if that's actually think I'm speeding Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio congressman Do you think that if the term investigation uncovers clear violations of law that the DOJ as it stands right now has the stomach to indict some of the any of the names players from the crossfire, hurricane ambush and soft coup attempt against President Trump? The real question is this does the attorney general and I think he does. I've been very impressed with the attorney general's work. I was very, I thought he handled himself extremely well last week in front of the Democrats, who You know, the Democrats didn't let us finish our video that we have a top of the hearing. Didn't let Bill bar answer the questions, and they even tried to stop him from going to the restroom. At one point, So even in spite of how bad they treat him, I thought he had himself very well. I think he has the stomach for doing the right thing. I think when he called it spying a little over a year ago, the first time he testified from the Senate, I think he does. Let's just hope that that's what happens and it frankly It should happen now, if you've got the evidence, and it's there. Don't wait. Justice delayed is Justice denied. Let's let's let's come forward with the conclusion of your investigation. Let's hold people count on that, Not the point about DeLay. Are there ways currently that you're seeing that the Democrats in Congress are trying to just slow, slow process? He's down in order to prevent their from being Greater accountability and transparency for the spying campaign against the president. I mean, other than you know the mainstream media and all the lies. Misinformation they put out and the real effort by Democrats in Congress is They're trying to do to Bill Bar. What? What they've been trying to do to the president for 3.5 years. So, you know, For weeks ago, they followed articles of impeachment. A number of the Democrat member of Judiciary Commitee filed article of impeachment against the attorney general, so they're attacking the attorney general..

C. CBS the way we're going to go to Los Angeles this is Tammy Europe first today with this and it's great to have you Sir hello yes rush ship accidentally outed Teramo as the whistleblower yesterday he is staff left it in the William Taylor transcript and it's cold all of the mainstream media ship posted on the whole website realize that he heard up yesterday and pulled down last night but it's still all over NBC no way what now I I knew this I knew that ships staff failed to redact show mellows name in in in one of the transcripts they released with the testimony of of bill Taylor I had not heard they pull down last I heard was they hadn't changed it was still up there that day he pulled down last night he called down off the whole website last night I'm not sure exactly what time but it's still up on all the mainstream media website of the PDF during mark meadows questioning it's still there bay they all out it nobody should be hiding the name anymore they all out it on every single one of well when I first heard about this there and and now this is ours all this is earlier this morning when I was smack them a little show prep what I the last I heard on this until your call was that the staff had outed the name and had not redacted it and still it was their sole people respected maybe is not the whistle blower then it shifted in full name down but your saying he's pull it down no he out last night last night when this first broke yes they absolutely want to present hold it out the whole website sure the eleven so what is your take well there was your interpretation of this they screwed up what date are so arrogant rush to put the transcript out there and they just buy it made a mistake if they didn't make a mistake like pull the transcript but yeah it's it's it's a sign it you know it's it's I hate to keep bringing it about back the things I said because I really don't like making the program about me but fox it's there's a pattern here when the Democrats have the cloak of secrecy when nobody but them knows what's going on like the mother report there weren't any leaks from the Muller report so everybody was allowed to build up expectations Maulers got dropped he's got a broad drum golden drug store your course the report comes out and it was dead the it was a dot so then they immediately moved over to obstruction and I couldn't get a ring on that told them they brought mall around in public they just couldn't accept that Mahler found nothing they brought in when it turned public it was a disaster Muller was a doddering old man who didn't know what was in his own report because he didn't write it guy name amber Weissman the rest of the staff wrote it mother was a figure head from the get go to give it credibility an unassailable reputation and all of that but the point is when they went public it was a disaster M. that's the trend now shift is getting ready to go public now and all of this is starting to post so what ships doing well I got the wasn't Moore's name at all and now all we are learning that ship is not able to use the whistle blower now to get a used van men because quid pro quo may not have any cheats another gonna go to bribery yes it's an exact replay of what happened with the Mahler investigation and report and their problem is they don't have anything they are wai Yang they are manufacturing along going illusion and they add to the illusion that every step or phase of this with the new alligator microphone call just happens to fall into their lack we're going to impeach trouble with a phone call that's because colluding with Russia bombed out is this is going to implode on them it is starting to it may even be ahead of the game on that Tim thanks for the call brief break back with more after this listen to talk radio all network news radio one thousand okay this is Steve investor insights with Stiefel chief investment officer Michael o'keefe Michael some stock markets are close to record highs recently yes stocks were up over the last week here in the U.
