Let's talk to NPR's David Folkenflik about it. Hey, david. Hey, david. So there was Karen McDougal former playboy model. There was Jeff Bezos in his accusation. Some I mean, I just remind us about all these controversies the magazine is faced we'll think back to what we now know about the two thousand sixteen race. Karen McDougal had claimed to have a significant relationship. Extra marital affair with the president and were subsequently introduced the phrase catch and kill the the inquirer facilitated one hundred and fifty thousand dollar payout. Two McDougal extensively to paired right column for a sister publication men's journal actually to ensure that store never saw the light of day during the election season separately, Jeff Bezos in January took to medium posted a platform. And basically said, hey, by the way, not only have I been having an extramarital affair with my girlfriend, but the inquirer is all over it. And Furthermore, I became aware that they're all over it. And they have been trying to blackmail me and extort me into issuing a statement saying that no way was this politically motivated because of their ties to President Trump, and they were threatening to publish very intimate. Photographs of me. I'm not. Gonna stand for it. Here's what I have to say. I mean, and it's worth just pausing and reflecting it at at Trump's ties to all of this. I mean, he's close to to the guy runs the magazine right Detroit. This is not in any way, an accident. David pecker, the determine the controlling executive at American media Inc. The parent company has long had ties with Donald Trump. They consider each other friends and Trump grew up in the sort of more. Hey and morass of tabloid news here in New York City doing business with Murdoch's New York Post doing business with the National Enquirer ensuring favorable coverage and trying to tamp down on negative coverage of him. Will you saw that play out on its pages with cover story after cover story reason questions about Hillary Clinton's morality Bill Clinton about her health, and you saw that about positive and sort of glowing coverage of Trump and also the lack of coverage of the kind of scandals that the inquire usually traffics in so the company is saying this is a business decision. But I mean, there's a report in the New Yorker that as recently as twenty seventeen company was thinking about how to actually. Expand its its portfolio of magazines. So I mean is is this the controversies that that really changed fortunes for them. Or is this story more complicated. Well, you could say both, you know, in twenty ten parent company declared, bankruptcy, there's significant debt surrounding and hanging over national enquirers parent company, but you can't separate this from the scandals the Washington Post in its reporting claims that the hedge fund manager who sort of controlling owner. Now of American media says that he's disgusted by what he's learned. The this is not really anything new for the inquirer. But don't forget the legal trouble. The inquirer has been in. You know, it got dragged into the investigation. Michael Cohen and others. It had to essentially negotiate with prosecutors in order to avoid prosecution, and indeed the bazo scandal may raise the legal stakes once more. I mean, we we've probably all joked at the grocery store checkout stand like looking at the health who would ever by the National Enquirer. When now it's like a more serious question. Who would by the national inquirer will you know in a in a straight world, you might say TMZ that digital gossip site. It's hard to. No, it's damage brand. It is a notable brands somebody made by as a play thing. Or there's been speculation. Jeff Bezos would wanna strangle it by it and put it out while different kinds of catch.

At Google cloud hint. It's a species you'll find in the mirror. It's humans humans, but the new head of Google's cloud business. Thomas Curien aims to end this Google shortcoming. He says to few people cater to enterprise customers. So he simplified contracts for different types of businesses that's opposed to a one size fits all pricing. And he's also moved to move more predictable pricing. And according to the journal, clawing bigger piece of the cloud is crucial for Google to diversify beyond online advertising coming up. London's proposal for a new social media regulator is one of the broadest yet in a larger movement by countries to assert control over tech giant's breaking it all down after this support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation helping clients apply. Technologies like cloud an AI. To their unique business challenges Deloitte, Kat com slash look again. The UK government plans to create a new regulatory body to force the removal of harmful content from the internet one of the most far-reaching legislative proposals from a host of countries. Trying to put a tighter leash on global tech companies. The Wall Street Journal's Kim Gittleson gets more on the story from parmi Olson in our London bureau said talk to me a little bit about your story. What is it that the UK government is proposing and how different is it from other regulations we've seen it's definitely quite bold compared to other regulations that have come out that are similar to this right now. This is just a policy proposal that the government has announced essentially, they are saying that big technology companies hosts social media sites, I Facebook, an alphabet Google should take what they call reasonable and proportionate action on all sorts of potentially harmful content that ends up on their sites. Whether that's. Violent content cyber bullying or disinformation. What we still don't know is actually how they're going to enforce that. How are they going to basically measure success? Like, how do they know? For example, how many videos extremists videos Facebook is taken down in one day. They're kind of relying on Facebook to tell them that information because the only people in the world that no that is Facebook. I mean, how does this compare to other regulations say put on place by these companies? I know it's a new era, and there aren't that many in place? But does this go one step further? We'll there definitely moves afoot from what we've heard in other parts of the world, Germany, France. There seems to be a lot happening in Europe in terms of trying to regulate big tech more. So than in the US, which is kind of ironic, you kind of look to disallow Convalle e is the place where the innovation happens. And then Europe is where they keep it all in check you could say from what we've seen. It does seem like this is. Is the kind of most rigorous and robust attempt actually putting in paper ideas and rules for regulating Toco technology companies in this way, again, it's not to do with data privacy, but just on the content like harmful content. How do you regulate that? And this seems to be the most substantial set of rules that we've seen so far, and why is the British government doing this right now? Surely there other things that British politicians might be paying attention to Brexit comes to mind, why this time in April are they paying attention to this issue. Well, there's been a consultation going for quite some time from what I've heard from speaking to people in the tech industry here for months and months is actually surprisingly enough people who work in the tech industry here. Really like what's happening? They're very impressed with the way the government has the civil service has gone about actually asking questions to the tech industry. I'm sure the same will not be said in Silicon Valley. I'm sure Facebook and Google Twitter. The folks are scratching their heads at this like how on earth are they going to pull this off? What has been the response from Silicon Valley? What is in the fonts from Facebook alphabets Google? It's just been very polite. I don't think anyone really from either of those companies want to go on the record and say, this is like really you expect politicians to regulate something as complicated, as you know, content moderation, which is not only done by humans, and we know tens of thousands of people around the world are helping moderate harmful content, but super complex metrics are used for that artificial intelligence machine learning tools. I mean, it's extremely complicated. I'm would not surprise me. If these companies behind the scenes are actually extremely skeptical of what the government is trying to do. And and don't think particularly highly of it in their comments to us though. They're extremely polite about it. So what happens next the UK is introduced this idea. Where does it go from here? Well, we've been told that they're working on turning it into legislation. So that's going to be quite a few number of weeks out. I'm sure probably months, and then they'll table that. And in the meantime, the minister at least one of the ministers from the what we call the department for culture, media and sport here who was behind this proposal. Jeremy Wright has said that he will be visiting the United States later this year he wants to showcase his proposals. And I suppose hope that the US will use it as a template and other countries as well. How realistic do you think that is will other countries pay attention to this? Well, I think it'd be easy to just dismiss it and say why would anyone pay attention to this? But there's a lot of momentum around regulating or answering the problem of harmful content on social media p people feel that something should be done about it. And when you ask whether tech companies are policing themselves properly. I think a lot of people would say the answer to. That is no more needs to be done. So I would not rule out the possibility that other governments will actually look to the UK and how successful or unsuccessful this country is pulling this off parmi Elson. Thank you so much for speaking. With me.

Investigators have suggested the Enquirer's coverage of his affair with Lauren. Sanchez which included the release of texts last month was driven by politics.

But, you know, cheating on your wife bad as evidenced in this story, and you just don't want those kinds of pictures, anywhere, anywhere.

That's just tell people are that stuff is gonna get out. So what are you thinking? The problem is you're not thinking or you're thinking elsewhere as the line goes. So again, you live your life. You do what you want? You think? Hey, my phone is private. I mean, do you listen when we talked to Greg stubborn every week about how much Amazon and Google and Facebook, and Twitter and all this. But how much they know about you just based on where you shop. And where the locator has you with your phone? I mean, they know other stuff too. They just do. And there's always somebody waiting to pounce waiting depends. So this is just an this is just another example of that story. Another example of do the bad stuff. Eventually you get caught.

And when it's all said and done you only worth half a cuisine dollars. Does it really have much impact on your life? I don't know. But it just people are people. It doesn't matter. If you're wealthier not people make bad decisions. It seems like almost every day. Incredible incredible. Yeah. I said cuisine. Because I don't know how much he's really worth. But it's a lot..

"The world's richest, man. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has accused the American media Inc. Which is AM I and they own the National Enquirer magazine of trying to blackmail him with the threat of publishing intimate photos of Mr. vessels and a woman with whom he was having an affair. Dave Lee is our North American technology correspondent I caught up with him from San Francisco. Well, this started last month. I guess you could say because that was when we learned that Jeff Bezos sand. His then what MacKenzie but us also going to divorce after twenty five years of marriage and just awful. They made the announcement the National Enquirer magazine, the notorious celebrity gossip magazine in the US published a story about an extra Maslov fair that Mr. basis had been having with a woman named Lauren Sanchez. Here's a former TV host. I didn't that story. There were several quotes that appear to be private messages. Share? Between the couple and as a result of that story seemed so what we're learning. Now is that Mr. Basil's he paid for private investigation a personal investigation to find out? Exactly how those messages that found their way to the National Enquirer, and it seems in the process of doing that he's greatly upset the magazine and he alleges through this message. So he's posted online the the reaction of the publisher. I enjoy American media Inc. Was in his words to try blackmail and extort him by threatening to publish in some pictures that it also had obtained and they were going to do that unless Mr. bazars cooled off this investigation into that story. So acquire extraordinary chain of events made even more remarkable by the fact that Jeff Bezos of courses is the world's richest, man. And he's accusing one of America's most powerful publishers of blackmailers is remarkable writing. There is a political undertone to all of this isn't there because Jeff bass. Is the owner of the Washington Post? What are people saying about that? Well, he himself has said that being the owner of the post has made him a political targets in a way that just simply being the founder and CEO Amazon hasn't done and tobacco up that that view. He he mentioned the fact that President Trump is often referred to the Washington Post is the Amazon Washington Post with the suggestion that Mr. vase uses the newspaper as a waiter to personally get at President Trump and in inject Basil's his message he said, that's the Washington Post had been a complexity fire. That was the word he used complexity fire on his lies that made him an enemy to quote, certain powerful people. So let suggestion there from Jeff Bezos by having this newspaper, which has done an awful lot of work in investigating President Trump suggestion from Mr. visas that is what's behind some of the hostility. He's faced from the National Enquirer. Well, I should say this point. Of course, is that we have approach. I am I the publisher and the National Enquirer magazine for a common, and they haven't provided in response to what Jeff Bezos has been saying and judging by US media, they have provided any to anybody about this yet. Jeff Bezos, certainly playing hardball with the National Enquirer that was Dave Lee with an update on that story. He's a North American technology correspondent talking to us from San Francisco, and you're listening to Newsday from the BBC with Connie and clan. Alastair has the sports. Thank you. Yes. Starting in the Premier League where Cardiff City have sent their condolences to the family of striking Amelia LaSala after it was confronted was his body was recovered from the wreckage of an aircraft in the English channel.

Anthony Davis is staying at the New Orleans pelicans. He had been heavily linked with a move to join the Brown James at the LA Lakers. I'll thank you now. All graphic images of self harm will be removed from Instagram. The head of the social media platform has told the BBC. The move comes after the father of a fourteen year old British teenager. Molly Russell who took her own life in two thousand seventeen said Instagram had helped kill his daughter molly's family found she had been viewing graphic images of self harm on the site prior to death Philip is on the business desk and has Mwale chief executive Adam Maseri was speaking to the BBC. He said that Instagram was trying to balance the need to act now, and the need to act responsibly here is in his words, we have to accept the responsibility that we have to keep people safe. We have to move more quickly to make more progress in all of those issues, and I think we also have to be transparent about what we do in. How we do it in however, doing each of those things I think I've been very clear that we are not yet where we need to be on the issues of south harm or suicide. Molly Russell's father. Ian, Russell welcomed Instagram's commitment and said that he hoped that they would act swiftly to implement their plans. A little earlier on iceberg to Oliver corner keys, the editor in chief of industry analysis firm, Oxford business group and asked him whether he was surprised by Instagram's move. I don't think it should be a surprise to anyone that accompany of this is this cub accompanied this influence along with all the other social media. Bam are beginning to take responsibility for the huge volume of information images and data that they have. This is Roe the curious thing though, because there are so many negative and bad things out there. Do they focus on for example, anorexia that they focus on people who vaccinate or don't vaccinate their children. They focus all these controversial areas. Are they do they focus some hate crimes? And they've decided to pick suicide if you like this week is the thing to focus on is that too much out there for us to expect the companies to police everything I think it's a very good question. Isn't it? There's some very obvious red lights say, for example, last year tumbler, the blogging streaming service, put restrictions on pornographic content. You might argue that was a fairly quick win over one. Then as you rightly point out there regret nations of alarm on their from from anorexia, for example, the body beautiful where where do you draw the line aids, very difficult. And it's interesting that Matt Hancock the health secretary in the UK. Here has come out recently. The companies aren't prepared to do it themselves. We may need to legislate to start the ball moving in the right direction there. But you're quite right. It is a huge talking for that bulldozed hitting the right points. Without of course, restricting the great benefit of social media has been this sort of global movement greater global interaction. We've heard an awful of positives. The last ten fifteen years, it shouldn't really be a surprise to us. Should it that there are now some negatives? And these negatives need exploring Oliver cognac their editor in chief of Oxford business group. Thank you. We've been looking at the Nigeria elections. They're happening in just over a week's time at throughout the morning here on James cardinal has been in Las Vegas for us. Looking at the role of women in Nigerian politics and also trying to keep dry. There was a torrential downpour. The last time we spoke to you, James. How's things looking now? Yeah. Hammering down. Now, it's just a dripping, thankfully, perhaps people starting to head into work their way through the Lakers traffic where I'm sitting. I'm looking at a wall painting surviving, the rain pretty well. I have to say it's related to the elections. And there's lots of a picture of a candidate lowering of a candidate. There are signs to corruption versus corruption empty treasury who stole your manifesto, so yeah. Even the paintings reflecting the elections know much about female candidates on that wall not much about female candidates in the posters. You see around town. If an idea ranks lowest in Africa for female representation in politics. That's according to the UN. So why are correspondent Miami Jones went to find out? I don't know. But I've lost to. She blow to my kitchen. And my little room.

"Welcome. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Battle breaks out over border funding. Obamacare takes a hit in the courts. But we begin today with President Trump and Michael Cohen and all of the legal wrangling surrounding the Trump administration as we mentioned last week, the president is in a bit of a legal trouble. He's got he's got a better legal trouble here. His legal trouble, basically consists of Michael I don't think the Russia investigation as I've said for a while is going to come up with anything major on the president. Maybe I'm wrong. We'll find out when it comes to Michael Cohen Cohen is basically made an accusation that president from violated campaign finance law that he instructed him to violate disclosure law and also personal giving limits by giving a bunch of money to American media Inc to walk up. Stormy Daniels this story or that he or intended to do that for Karen McDougal than he actually did it without American media Inc. He just paid off stormy Daniels. And that was an in kind contribution that was legal and President Trump had instructed him to go ahead and do all that while President Trump responded over the weekend by calling Michael Cohen attorney rat. So he tweeted out remember Michael Cohen only became a rat in quotation marks after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable. An unheard of until the witch hunt was illegally started. They broke into an attorney's office all caps. Why didn't they break into the GNC the server or crooked office? A couple of things. First of all, I do love it crooked. Hillary has now become crooked. So. The man's met an expert Brad. I mean, you gotta give that to him. Right. He's just as crooked. Oh, yeah. He's talking about Clinton. I'm but the, but when it comes to this tweet a couple of problems number one, it is not illegal to get a warrant to search a lawyer's office. They went through the DOJ they went through procedures. They didn't break into Michael Collins office. It wasn't like they went in there with a pry bar like this Watergate, and then just broke into Michael Collins office, also if he thinks that's bad. Then why is he recommending that? They should have broken into the DNC. If it's bad to break into Michael cohnreznick. It's so bad. They did that it's criminal. Why didn't they do it to the DNC? They look. Galaxy brain stuff right there. Says that they should have broken into Hillary Clinton's office. First of all, they did get a copy of the server we've talked about this on the show before I don't like when non factual information is put out there. One of the pieces of non factual information of her over and over and over again from people on the right side of the aisle is that the FBI did not get copies of Hillary Clinton servers that they should've just seized the servers. That's not how any of this works. They made a copy of the server that's normal procedure and as far as call breaking into Hillary Clinton's office. They did actually dig up a lot of her old emails. They did subpoena all of these materials by the time. They got there. She already drilled holes in her stops. I'm not sure what breaking into our office would have done writing in any case. The the big the big headline of this suite is him calling Michael Cohen rat Iraq. Note to the president of the United States a couple of months number one. Listen to your attorneys, stop it. Please. Stop it. Just as a lawyer it is painful to watch his clients. Like, I'm going to defend myself. Don't do it. Don't do it. You're not a lawyer. If you're a good lawyer, then you wouldn't have needed Michael Collins ninety the lawyer is it just south. I feel like willy Wonka in Charlie and the chocolate factory a stop, wait come back. I mean what what is he doing second? When he says Michael Cohen back after the FBI did something normally if you watch mob movies, which I find like mob movies, then when someone is called a rat. It is not because they are lying usually they're called a rat. Because they're telling the truth Jimmy Cagney going you dirty rat. Usually what he's talking about is somebody in his orbit. Who's now talking to the police in order to secure a better deal for himself, but not lying. And in fact, it isn't it is in fact, a crime for federal prosecutors to suborn perjury themselves. So federal prosecutors working put out evidence that turns out to be false pressure people into making false statements for use in court, and they would be criminally liable for that. So Trump here in this tweet is doing about ten different things. None of them good including calling Michael Cohen erat, which makes him look like, he's a mobster. It's just it's just dumb, and his basic case is very simple. He should have just said, Michael. Colin is my lawyer, Michael Collins job is to make sure that everything we did was according to the law end of story now, we're done. Instead, he didn't do that. And one of the reasons he didn't do that is because he doesn't know what evidence the FBI and the DOJ now have with regards to what Michael Collins said to President Trump sell President Trump continues to fulminate over these investigations a he ripped into Jeff Sessions over the hoax Russia probe. So there's that he says it looks here as the general Flynn's defenses are incidental to something larger which is for the prosecution to figure out if they can find a path Donald Trump without quite knowing what that crime might be it stops looking like prosecution and more looking like a persecution of the president. That's Daniel Henninger over at the Wall Street Journal, which is true. He says thank you people are starting to see and understand what this witch hunts is all about Jeff Sessions should be ashamed of himself for allowing this total hoax to get started. In the first place note, the quote unquote, hoax did not get started under Jeff Sessions. This investigation began in two thousand sixteen in the middle of the investigation sessions recused himself. Because sessions had been implicated in talking with people in Russia right during the during the transition, and he was part of the campaign. It's up bridge. Alana's the president's personal attorney, and there are three really terrible jobs right now in America. I mean worse than any septic worker through really awful jobs president's personal attorney president's press secretary chief of staff all jobs that no sane human being. Well, Rudy Giuliani jumped right in the middle of that. So the former mayor of New York former twenty oh eight presidential candidate. He was out there defending President Trump, and he's basically skipping to the end. Okay. What he's basically skipping to is that President Trump didn't do anything criminal even if he did bad stuff. Even if you talked to Michael Cohen is not really a big deal. And so we are skipping all the way to where. I am ready. Which is I'm assuming that President Trump probably told Michael Collins to spend money on stormy Daniels. I'm assuming that that probably happened because I think he did I'm assuming that President Trump talked with Michael Cohen and American media Inc. About picking up the stories of these various women all that can be true, and he still didn't necessarily commit a crime. And that's what Giuliani Giuliani is skipping all of the middle steps. And frankly, I don't think that's terrible. I think there are a lot of folks in the administration who don't understand when you're constantly moving the goalposts as to guilt and innocence. It actually looks worse. If you're just say, yeah. President has a lot of stuff not illegal. That's probably a better. Answer than the president. Didn't do it. Well, the president might have done it. But not what you're saying. He did. Well, the president might have done what you said he did. But it's not that bad. Well, it might not be that bad. It might be kind of bad, but it's not criminal. Why don't you go to what president does a lot of stuff not criminal? Right. That's actually a better line. But instead we've gotten this constantly receiving line of goalposts into the infinite distance. And I think that that's actually pretty bad PR Giuliani's cutting through all that to his credit. He saying with regard to the Russia's stuff that collusion is not a crime that which is true. He's saying that nothing the president. Did maybe it looks bad to you. But it's not actually criminal true. And then he adds it was over by election time, which is weird kind of qualifier. I know collusion is not a crime. It was over with by the time of the election. Okay. Well, the it it it depends. What the it is. Right. If he was if he was colluding with Russia to affect the outcome of the election, and that would be a crime collusion itself is not a crime conspiracy is a crime. So it depends on what activity we are talking about here. But he's not wrong. He's not wrong. And that's why there's a poll today from CNN and shows about half of Americans are not interested in impeachment at this point, which is actually up a little bit over what it was a couple of weeks ago. And then Giuliani makes what is a pretty good legal point. He says, you know, when President Trump wanted to keep stormy Daniels. Silent the entire case against Michael Cohen and President Trump on this score rests on the idea that President Trump wanted to silence these women before the election. This is the case that's been made by former FCC commissioners who have said that President Trump paying off women is not a crime because people do this every day in public life. They pay off women all the time that doesn't make a criminal signing. Hush agreements is a well accepted part of the legal staff. The legal profession. The only question is whether this particular hush money was paid off with an eye toward the election. And this raises a legal question. What if it's both what if the president paid off these women partially because of the election but partially because he wanted to keep it secret from his wife because he didn't want Milania finding out all about it. And then lamps Adam or something what if it's both? And that's the case Giuliani makes he says, listen, I can produce witnesses who say that President Trump was just silencing these women not because of the election only. But because these women were ready to come forward, and that was going to harm his personal life has Giuliani saying that I can produce an enormous number of witnesses to say the president was very concerned about how this was going to affect his children his marriage, not just this one. But similar all those women came forward at that point in time that that Chepe with Billy Bush and all of that so part of the same thing. And I know what he was concerned about and I can produce twenty witnesses to tell you what he was two weeks before the campaign, damn, right? And he was he was concerned about all of it. Okay. And that's not actually implausible, you know, Stephanopoulos. Is kind looking at that askance like, oh, this is happening right before the end of the campaign when women were coming forward. In other words, mainly part of the factor. Here is not the Trump wanted to pay these women off before the election may be part of the factor. Here is these women knew that their payday was coming before the election. And so Trump has a limited amounts of time to silence these women before his family finds out about that. If that's something that President Trump is deeply concerned about and by the way, the evidence is pretty good that Trump Blake silencing these women, regardless of whether there's an election going on. Remember he worked with AMA silence. Stormy Daniels back in two thousand eleven having nothing to do with the election. So again as I've been saying for two weeks here, the president's defense rents on a couple of points point, number one is the idea that this had nothing to do with the election point, number two. Is that even if it had something to do with the election? That's Michael Collins fault. That's his lawyers. I don't think that case is particularly bad. But the evidence is going to have to emerge. There's one piece of evidence. We're going to talk about in a second that's sort of cuts against the president on that. I score. I but first let's talk about life insurance. I know you don't wanna think about life insurance because it means thinking about both death and insurance two things are.

"We're just watching the dominos fall. Well, AM I American media Inc. Is the parent company of the National Enquirer and it made a deal with prosecutors. The Enquirer admitted that it paid a woman who claimed to have had an affair with Donald Trump and paid her to suppress that story when'die the chief executive of AM David pecker has been very close to President Trump for a long time. What does this agreement mean in a larger sense? I think it helps very much prosecutors who may want to pursue felony charges against president. Trump probably after he's out of office. But it really shows that there were meetings that discussed the benefits to his campaign of killing these stories and the National Enquirer has been known for a long time to do by kill you know, where their action kill us catch catch and kill you where they pay people to tell their story only to them. And then never write the story. Which has journalism ethics problems all over it. But the, but that is what I think it shows is that there was a coordinated effort to help Donald Trump's campaign, and that makes it a campaign finance violation. You Josh can we I'm glad you mentioned that Wendy can we dig into that just a little bit more in terms of the nature of catch and kill as I understand it. The legal issue is not the catch and kill part like catch and kill may be unseemly. But it's not unlawful. The issue is the campaign finance part that's related to this catch and kill practice. That's right. This is a campaign finance violation. Because if you're spending money for a campaign, it has to be disclosed to the Federal Election Commission. And this was never never disclosed a now on a political. The political dynamic is interesting because this is about as clear a legal hit against the president as as prosecutors have have uncovered so far. In fact, there's been reporting that Trump was actually in the room with David pecker as some of these negotiations were we're taking place. But the question is do voters do Americans look at the lack of disclosure when Trump was clearly trying to to cover up an affair does that move the needle at all politically because you know, if Democrats want to move on impeachment. If they want to use some of these charges in the political sense, you've got to persuade the public. And the question is is this going to be enough to move those Republicans that have been supporting Trump through thick and thin across his presidency.

"Or amplify to help out. Okay. Anna. Let's get started. Big big news today. Lots of big news today. All right. It appears that Donald Trump's legal troubles are mounting, especially considering a new report from NBC indicating that sources indicate that Trump was present during talks about paying off or paying hush money to various women that he had affairs with now. According to NBC news, the statement of admitted facts, which was written by that's American media Inc. Admitted making one hundred fifty thousand dollar payment in concert with the campaign says that pecker Michael Cohen, and at least one other member of the campaign were in the meeting. Now NBC news also notes that Trump was first identified as tending the meeting by the Wall Street Journal. So it's because of the cooperation by America American media Inc. That we are now aware we have some evidence that indicates that Trump was in fact. Act president president. Now statement of admitted fact says that am is principle purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman's story. And the woman referenced here is Karen McDougal. So as to prevent it from influencing the election. So this is small news in huge news. Let me explain. Small news in that. Well, who else was going to be in the room? I mean, Michael Cohen said that he worked with. A presidential candidate to make these hush payments. Was he randomly working with Jeb Bush was he working with Martin O'Malley. Now, he's going to be Donald Trump. But it's huge news in the news organizations. Will simply not report it, even though it super obvious. They could end edit it cetera. Like, well, Michael Cohen was the personal attorney for Donald Trump. He says there was a presidential candidate who made the hush payments with him, etc. But now they can officially report it as yes, we have a source that says that obviously the person who coordinated the hush payments was Michael Cohen, and and Donald Trump along with the AM, I that's the parent company of National Enquirer. So the the statement of admitted facts that we keep referring to is what prosecutors put into the record. They're saying we're not going to prosecute am I but at is because in return, they have given us valuable evidence about the lawbreaking of others. And now, we know for a fact that it's Donald Trump. And so this now that it becomes more and more efficient. It's becomes perfectly official when the prosecutors say yes, it was Donald Trump here. It is Donald Trump. Here's a recording etcetera. But now at least there are inside sources that are confirming it, well, it puts lawmakers in a very very difficult spot. Yeah. Clearly and again injured a ball Balto. Fox's has been saying this day after day, and we keep giving them credit. He's very conservative, but for being principal saying, look the guy it's this is lawbreaking. Are you going to do something? Or are you not it's a felony committed a felony? Federal prosecutors say he committed a felony that is incredibly serious. And that's why this is huge news. One other part of it. That is relatively new is. Now, we already had recorders recordings of Michael Cohen talking to Donald Trump even got leaked to the press about the hush payments. But now they say he was in the room, directing the payments. Well, that puts them at the very center of the conspiracy to break campaign finance laws. Exactly. So it it really does provide a one two punch for the prosecutors in this case because again, you have that recording which we're gonna get to in just a second. I wanted to play it for you guys. So you can remember what the conversation sounded like, but more importantly, you take this statement of admitted a fax from am I and you couple it with that recording? And I mean, the proof is at this point eve refutable rights at Trump can't deny it. And remember Trump has changed his story over and over again when it comes to this particular investigation, you know, whether it was I never had an affair. I never knew about the payments in fact back in April of this year while he was boarding Air Force One. He said this..

"In New York American media Inc. The publisher of the National Enquirer admitted it paid hush money to a woman who alleged to have had an affair with Trump. The White House denies that. Prosecutors said AM I admitted that it made the one hundred fifty thousand dollar payment in concert with the candidates presidential campaign and in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate AM. I further admitted its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman's story. So. So as to prevent it from influencing the election, assuming they comply the US attorney has agreed not to prosecute AM I for its role in that payment, the company and its CEO, David pecker declined to comment Packer and President Trump is, you know, have been close and loyal friends for many years. According to the New Yorker pecker has been a member at mar-a-lago since two thousand three and was a guest at Trump's two thousand five wedding Trump road in two thousand thirteen tweet time magazine should definitely pick David pecker to run things over there. He make it exciting and win awards a similar sentiment to what Trump said after the two thousand sixteen Republican convention. I've always said why didn't the National Enquirer get the Pulitzer prize for Edwards and O J Simpson and all of these things so don't we have here. Those two stories a'dove tailing for what Michael Cohen is telling prosecutors into what am I is telling prosecutors in that is in the waning days of the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign payments were made at the direction of candidate Donald Trump to women to suppress their stories to help him become president of the United States. Yeah. Tell you yesterday was a fascinating day had to be a very troubling day for Donald Trump where Michael Cohen going out there, basically, delivering the same speech that Darth Vader delivered dilute as he was dying right at the end of return of the Jedi. But more troubling than that, Mike barnicle, you have AM I brought into this brought in specifically for another payment for the suit that they are obviously continuing this does not stop with Michael Cohen going to jail. This starts with Michael Cohen going to jail, and they clearly have AM I admitted his third party they made a contribution. And they made that contribution to help elect Donald Trump president of the United States under any reading for all these Republicans who are covering their head in sand of any reading of the federal election laws that is a crime the fact that they knowingly conspired I'm talking about Trump and Cohen and their came they knowingly conspire hide that payment made in the waning days of the campaign or month. Of the campaign even clear violation of the law and a felony and Joe's devastating day for the White House, but Donald Trump because what the AM I settlement with the Justice department does is literally figuratively put Donald Trump in the room is part of a conspiracy. They are the corroborating witness to Michael Cohen's testimony, and Danny Cevallos. I don't know about you. But looking at the the plea agreement and reading about it. I mean, this would seem to me if the climbing the ladder of Justice. This is just maybe the second third rung in this climb towards Justice. A what more to come out of this and potentially real real real threats to press perhaps other people including maybe the president's extended family based on Cohen's agreement. Mike, you just took the words out of my mouth when you talked about ammo, the pro prosecution and the government is building. A foundation of corroborating evidence by using AM I to bolster Michael Cohen's claims in the future. So that it's not a he said he said situation. That's the purpose of am. I looking at campaign finance love violations and the history of prosecution they are not a slam dunk for prosecutors. And the government knows this the John Edwards case for similar charges did not result in a conviction. So the government knows they have to build a well-corroborated case not just with testimony. But with documents communications text messages emails anything they can because this is not an easy crime to establish beyond a reasonable doubt. Let's go to Katty Kay next. And caddy.

"Order to bury her story a practice known as catching kill Karen McDougal was paid one hundred fifty thousand dollars for the exclusive rights to her story about an alleged affair with Donald Trump American media Inc. CEO David pecker is close with Mr. Trump. He admitted that AM I killed McDougal story. So it wouldn't damage the campaign, Michael. All right. Thanks Steve Kastenbaum. And of course, the concern within the Trump team is what else Mr. pecker might be telling the prosecutors in New York nine minutes after the hour now on first light ended the season to be jolly.

A gracious, farewell. It has been the great honor of my life to serve our country.

Similar sentiments expressed by retiring, Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch, something has to give the status quo cannot hold these are or should always stay the United States of America. And hatch said the Senate itself has slowly descended into the depths. I was here when we could say. Without any. That we were members of the world's greatest deliberative body. Tons of certainly changed and enclosing remarks hatch offered this advice. He said if you're looking to convert someone to your side, humiliating them is probably not the best place to start. And he added who among us would make friends with the same person who would make him a fool, Michael? Thank you. Correspondent Linda Kenyon on Capitol Hill for first light.

"Against him unsealed, this non-prosecution agreement that they had made with a company involved in one of the felonies that Michael Cohen was sentenced for today. This essentially a partial immunity deal for American media Inc. The company that runs the National Enquirer the company and its chairman longtime friend of the president named David pecker. I know you can get all the his last name is pecker jokes out of the way in your mind right now, we'll leave those where they are the company and its chairman apparently secretly entered into this deal with prosecutors in September and in this deal. Prosecutors said the company wouldn't be prosecuted for making an illegal campaign contribution to the Trump campaign when they paid one hundred and fifty thousand. To a woman specifically to keep her from talking about her alleged affair with Donald Trump before election day now in exchange for that non-prosecution the company had to agree to help prosecutors and they had to admit their conduct. This is from prosecutors today, quote as part of the agreement AM I admitted that it made the one hundred and fifty thousand dollar payment in concert with a candidates presidential campaign and in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Am I further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman's story. So as to prevent it from influencing the election, so am I had previously maintained this fiction that they were really interested in paying this woman one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for her tips on like toning, your ABS and stuff had nothing there now admitting that was a hundred and fifty thousand dollar payment designed to.

"Ten it's not a happy, fight if you're part of the Trump inner circle right now I'm just going to say that Allen. Weisselberg is the newest name added. To the list granted immunity and yesterday it was David Packer the chairman of American media Inc the publisher of National Enquirer who was also given immunity among, others and joining, me on the phone from the Washington. Examiner Angie retali- Anna great to. Talk to you, again today thanks for coming on the. Show thanks. So much and I to, have, been granted immunity so awesome wait for reality? Just like wow how did you hear on that inner. Circle, that's pretty who hasn't been granted immunity. At this point well this is it was very interesting yesterday I actually was not as familiar with because he hasn't been as public hearing McDougal's attorney. Coming out yesterday and you wrote about this in the Washington Damanour what did he have to say when. David Packer was announced as being given immunity Yes so you'll recall Karen McDougal was a former playmate who had. Said she had a sexual relationship President Trump prior to, his taking office and her attorney Peter stress had said back in March that their story, her story was bought by, the National Enquirer, whose publisher is a close friend of Trump's but the story never? Ran which is like why would you pay for a story and then not run it so all he said yesterday, after it, was reported that the publisher, David pecker had given immunity in, return for propagation they said, told, you so getting at you. Know everything they. Had happened kind of being vindicated? Like see we told you paid off it wasn't Yeah Than distorting. Dot. Right, well that's the and that is the crux in all of this Angie rally from the Washington Examiner is on the. Phone that's the crux in all of this is it's not just, a, hey, look you, know people get paid all the time to be quiet about things that just. Happens that's part of when you're a guy like Donald, Trump you're paying people. Off we don't know how many people he's paid off over the. Years but when you're being paid off a couple of weeks before the, election even if it's a couple of months before the. Election although in this case it was somewhere between a couple of weeks in a couple of. Months it's not a year before it's not five years before this is. Close the proximity to the election itself is what matters in, this and that's what starts crossing to illegal. Territory Yeah and I'm looking at. How they how they paid how the Trump administration organization reported. Paying it off I mean you're looking at Especially with the Michael Cohen. Stormy, Daniels incident how they reported in the return documents, then reimbursing Cohen because if they lied and some. Of the, documents on purpose You could be looking at a, misdemeanor at a. Low level Sony and then there's the camp by campaign finance In addition to that So let let's walk back for just. To say Michael Cohen I think, this is really important a energy or tellies joining me on the, front from, Washington Examiner, Michael? Cohen pleaded guilty right he was the guy who is who is the supposed fixer is what we keep, calling them personal time personal. Attorney to President Trump David Packer is the chairman of, the group that allegedly and apparently we have the paper trail the show this is who actually paid carry McDougal and Allen Weisselberg is the CFO of. All the Trump things he's the guy today that we found. Out was given immunity And, he's the guy who helped organize the movement of money into this apparently faked corporation that would have transferred the funds. To pay her off so, an all, of these people now are talking to prosecutors there's only one. Person left who's not locking the prosecutors exactly this if I'm President Trump I'm very uncomfortable right now, and really, there he's, in? A no win position at this why because if he interferes with the federal investigation other investigations related to, this you know it doesn't. Look at doesn't interfere and keep keeps going it might, not end well it's not looking like well you know Paul Manafort only one juror with the difference between have not been convicted on all at eighteen. Counts instead of eight he was convicted for so I mean The special counsel and the prosecutors. Really made a case against, him and with Michael, Cohen, pretty dopey, for accounts on Tuesday I think the prosecutors and as a result of the investigation really know exactly what they're going. Out to have the. Evidence for it Yeah this is it's really I mean so I don't know what you're hearing out of DC but I mean just from the west coast here when I looked to your point Anna telly. From the Washington Examiner to your point when I look clearly Trump is feeling the pressure because to spend two. Straight days attacking his own appointed attorney general that he could fire at any time for, any reason who serves at the. Pleasure of the president that's your seems like me to me like somebody who's trying to redirect attention away from his own legal problems Exactly yeah you know someone who said to me You know when when the whitewater investigation was. Going. On. And they discovered the Monica Lewinsky affair It was kind of. The same thing except they found, something they weren't looking for necessarily as part of another investigation the differences President Trump is really he's pushing the narrative that this. Wasn't disorders intended, from the very beginning to find bad stuff within his business against. His friends and, I mean we're talking about a guy who didn't release his tax returns ever so It calls even more into question now why he didn't release those what he was not necessarily hiding but he didn't want to. Make public and, certainly you know more people cooperating I think we're gonna see a crater A greater number of really amount of information as to what, he was sending his organizations money on all the, things going, on relation to. That well it was the bookkeeper who Sunk Al Capone essentially because it was. About, you know what I'm saying You get. The CFO you can always secrets it's true it's been CFO for decades that's the difference is. Not like he was hired last. Year and just came across one document he's going to have very.

What Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal Means for David Pecker

What Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal Means for David Pecker

"We have more breaking news now this from the Wall Street Journal, confirming question just raised before we went to this commercial break. The Wall Street Journal is reporting tonight that David pecker the chairman of American media Inc which publishes the National Enquirer provided prosecutors with details about payments. Mr. Cohen, arranged with women who alleged sexual encounters with President Trump, including Mr. Trump's knowledge of the deals joining our discussion now, Barbara mcquade a former federal prosecutor. She's a professor of law at the university of Michigan and MSNBC legal contributor, Harry Lipman former federal prosecutor and deputy assistant attorney general under President Clinton. And Ron Klein is with us former senior aide to President Obama and a former chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary committee. I saw David Kay Johnston there, but someone left him out of my little teleprompter here. David Johnston Pulitzer prize. Is winning reporter who is running the organization DC report dot org, which studies the Trump investigation Barbara mcquade I to you this information just reported by the Wall Street Journal that David Packer who was clearly identified in yesterday's proceeding of Michael Collins. Guilty plea is now it's confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. He is already cooperating with the prosecutor and had already cooperated with the prosecutor before they even made that presentation yesterday, which seems to make sense when you read every part of that presentation. This is very significant news. I think because I think one of the scepticisms of what Michael Cohen had to say is just. You know, he's talking out of his own self interest. You would need to corroborate what he's saying with other witnesses and now to have David pecker someone who is speaking against his own self interest to have provided that information I think is strongly corroborative. And if as you said he implicates President Trump as well. This is really a huge development is not just Michael Cohen with an ax to grind trying to save his skin. It's now corroborated by two witnesses, and chances are they've got documentation that supports that as well. So very significant piece of news there claim the president today telling Fox News, something kind of about his knowledge of the payments when he was asked about, did you know about the payments? He said later later we have no idea what that was supposed to mean. But here's David pecker according to the Wall Street Journal saying that President Trump was part of arranging the payments and that the President Trump had knowledge of the deals and knowledge of the deals being arraigned. That's right. Lawrence. I think your introduction made such important point, which is we know so much more about this today than we did yesterday, but to paraphrase Bill pops on, but not half as much as we're gonna know tomorrow. I mean. Robert Muller knows a lot of things. We don't know yet thousands, tens of thousands of pages for Michael Cohen's office months of investigation. It's starting to come to light. Now, the scope of it is is really quite stunning, but but there's still a lot here. We don't know. All we do know is it's going to point a very bad direction for the president. He clearly lied to the American people. He clearly lied anyone who he talked to about it and and you know, we don't have to witnesses crops and the fact they directed people to commit a crime. That's very serious piece of business with a lot of unknown stuff. Still out there. David, Kate Johnston, you've been falling following Donald Trump and his circle for longer than any of us. I think the easiest prediction you could have made for us tonight is that of course, David pecker is going to cooperate with federal prosecutors Wall Street Journal has beat us to even making it as a prediction. They've got it as already underway. Well, in other people are going to step forward. Now, Donald always been able to beat back law enforcement, beat back grand. Jury's compromise people get people to corrupt things in the government to advance his interests. And now all these other people, understanding Donald Trump is only loyal to Donald are going to start abandoning him. And this is a dangerous time for our country because Donald's Radic behavior is likely to become much much more erratic. He's going to have a lot of internal conflict over this because remember in his delusional mind, he is greater than all of us where idiots were stupid..
