Trump pulled into yet another lawsuit this time by investors claiming fraud over a product on the apprentice. A video phone pitches or something. Video phone? I don't. There's just never been a bigger criminal, like certainly not just in The White House, but it is endless. His list of crimes in fraud and griffs. Yeah, he is the most investigated and thus far least prosecuted person in American history, but that's going to change. By the way, didn't him opening his big yap about aging Carol again. Yesterday. So now he is not president anymore. And he is defamed her again. Yes. And all she has to do is amend her complaint and now he no longer has the protection of the presidency for the defamation that he clearly perpetrated against her. So, you know, he remains his own worst enemy. I have to hope that he can not judge shop forever as you were saying. Trump raged against U.S. district judge David Carter yesterday a day after Carter wrote in 18 page opinion indicating that Trump signed court documents making specific claims of election fraud. He knew to be inaccurate. Right, so he just, he'll do his partisan to hack judge blah blah blah.

Yeah, and it's not just David Carter, who has called him out for criminal misconduct. I mean, you look at the judge meet me in D.C., judge Sullivan, judge Amy Berman Jackson, judge Reggie Walton. These people have been and it's so unusual stuff because usually the judiciary sits back. They wait for the Department of Justice to bring the charge. They wait for a conviction and at the time of sentencing, that's where they start to say things like, what Trump did was really pretty horrible. And let me tell you how long he's going to spend in prison. Here, it's kind of law enforcement turned on its head. The judiciary. Yeah. Is the one sort of leaning forward saying, listen, executive branch. Y'all need to take care of some of Trump's crimes. Right. Yeah. Who is this, was this the statement from the office of the president? Statement

"That a problem? Brock notes. The reason is that, as president, he had broad, legally intimidating authority, established by law and court determinations to declassify any and all documents and to determine what is and what is not, a presidential record. What part of this is hard? You have established court precedent, a judge Amy Berman Jackson 2012 opinion that the president has a sole discretion to decide and manage his presidential records. So it's bad enough that this affidavit has no smoking gun we've seen. Strong likelihood it has no smoking gun underneath the redactions. But there's an even stronger likelihood that the FBI is going to lose the case in court with the DoJ claiming records were classified if Trump said they were not because legal precedent says he, not the FBI, has the soul, not SOUL, SOL E sold discretion to determine what is a record and what isn't. Again, I'm not sure what part of this is difficult for the left to understand. This piece got a lot of attention, folks by Kevin Brock. Again, discovers an assistant director at the FBI. He's not some like dunce, writing. I don't know the guy. I'm just telling you that what he's saying here makes common sense. He may turn around and write it up in a few weeks. We don't agree with to find whatever. We don't try to censor information here and like the goons on the left. John Solomon's site, just the news picked up on his comments too. Retired FBI boss, disassembles Trump search warrant. He brings up another point about this war. Point number one is probably nothing underneath the redactions. It would have leaked it again. Point number two, Trump can declassify this. It has sole discretion. You saying he has classified documents, doesn't make it so. But the third point, Brock makes when asked about the FBI warrant. Is he says it's puzzling to a lot of folks who've been involved in search warrants for much more serious disputes in white collar crimes. Where these things are settled, an attorney's offices and you don't have to go in with an invasive search. Contrary to the attorney general's statement during his press conference that they've exhausted all other means Brock continued. Listen, I did a long detailed segment on this in the podcast this morning. There are things I comment on on the show because I'm a political commentator and it's the current topic in the political space and I do a lot of homework to give you a somewhat informed opinion on what I think is going on. I owe you that. But there were other things I comment on with direct subject matter expertise because I did them. Does it make me special? Does it make me different? It just means I had a job. You didn't have. You're a plumber and electrician. You know of a skill set I don't have. I don't have it. I rely on you for that specific expertise. How to fly a plane. I can comment on a plane. Can I fly a plane? I can not. I've served search warrants. I've sworn out warrants. I've been in proffer Sessions. I've been in front of magistrate judges. This is not the first rodeo. I've been there for over a decade as a federal agent. What Brock is saying here is a 100% accurate. For you to serve a search warrant on a presidential record, you can't even prove her classified because you haven't made the case the president didn't declassify them because you can't. Knowing that in cases of lesser importance than this, you would typically go to an attorney and work this out in advance, says to me and no one certain terms, this is obviously politically motivated as nothing to do with law enforcement in general. Now, it'd be a fair enough question to ask, well, Dan, if you were the FBI or the DoJ, why would you go to someone and say, listen, I need your cooperation, you know, Jim, you were a former high level CIA official, and we think you have unauthorized classified documents in your house. Why would you go to Jim if you were an FBI and say, Jim, you know, we're looking for your cooperation in this and call the lawyers, maybe in advance. Well, not many, but not know all, but in many cases, I should say. You go to him because your goal is to mitigate the national security damage. If this doesn't make sense, Jim Mike, you gotta stop me as the audience on buds men. Your goal here is not to punish Jim from the start. Punishment is going to be part of he broke the law Jim and say the former CIA assistant director, whatever. But your primary concern, correct is going to be stopping the damage. Have CIA names get out there, gotten out there of sources gotten out there, all of this other stuff. So your goal is to cooperate and not alienate the client. So typically what you do is go to Jim's attorney and say, hey, Jim, we think you may have some possession of some CIA documents you shouldn't have. We think there's a threat to national security. We need to sit down, you could be charged with a crime. So we're going to do a proffer session. Proffer session, you can look it up if you want to go through the legalistic jargon about it. But it's basically a king for a day deal where that's what we used to jokingly call him. You come in with your attorney. You talk to the assistant in the United States attorney. As long as you don't lie, the United States attorney is not going to use that information against you in trial. You could basically spill the beans without fear of it being used against you. And why would it be in the AUSA the assistant in the United States attorney and the government's best interest to do this? Because they want to make sure you don't have even more stuff and it's not more damaging. You notice this didn't happen with Trump, that there were ongoing negotiations about what is or isn't a presidential record. And because the elections were closing in, all of a sudden it became, they had an expedite this and go and hit his house with a warrant when they wouldn't do this for almost anyone else given these circumstances and haven't done it with anyone else. You got this FBI AD retired assistant director saying exactly what I just told you. That in white collar crimes like this, you don't go slamming down the doors in a raid kicking Trump's attorneys out, doing a general warrant, looking through Melania's underwear, draw what the hell's wrong with you. You didn't realize this was going to have a deep impact, pun intended for the comet reference before. On the constitutional republic, you didn't realize an unprecedented warrant that's never been served in U.S. history, you didn't realize that was going to cause a ripple for the republic in a representative democracy. What are you stupid?

I just want to repeat that as many times as possible. Yeah. Because, as I said, justice wise, Chris.

And this time we won't wear a panty on our head. No. Okay.

building To peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections but whether or not they stand strong for our country Welcome back rich Valdez in for Jim bohannon tonight The phone number is 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 8 6 6 5 zero Jim Bo we're on with Roger Stone and I want to check in with Matt and North Carolina You had a quick word for Roger Stone keep it brief What's going on Yes sir I was absolutely elated it was wonderful when I read newsmax that he was exonerated with that FBI ready to cost $1.1 million sir Outstanding roger That's very kind You know people don't know this but on November 3rd of 2020 by court order Robert Mueller was forced through the Department of Justice to release the last remaining long hidden redacted section of his final report in which he admitted that he had quote no factual evidence close quote of my involvement in Russian collusion WikiLeaks collaboration or the fishing and publication of John Podesta's very embarrassing emails So in other words almost two years after I was convicted the Justice Department was forced to spit up their own admission that they never had any evidence against me at all That's why they contrived this lied to Congress charge but how do you lie to Congress about something that never happened I had no involvement Whatsoever in the DNC emails published by WikiLeaks I do believe that the forensic evidence and experts that I respect demonstrated that based on download times that information wasn't stolen through an online act it was downloaded to some kind of portable device taken out the back door perhaps by supporters of Bernie Sanders upset with the fact that Hillary Clinton had to cheat to beat him in the nomination contest So I was exonerated but they released that at midnight on November 3rd 2020 That's election day the busiest media day of the year Now rich you've been around for a while Who puts out a press release at midnight Not a smart person Somebody who doesn't want whatever it is they're being forced to announce to be covered So The New York Times has never reported that The Washington Post has never reported all those media outlets that for years said I was a trader that I was a Russian intelligence asset that I colluded with WikiLeaks or colluded with the Russians to help Donald Trump none of which there is any evidence whatsoever to support based on Mueller's own report that was disproved And the worst part is that at my trial we asked for the release of that information and judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that she would read Mueller's report and determine what sections my lawyers could have she read that but she did not give it to us at trial So in other words she withheld exculpatory information that would have totally undermined the charges against me Again they kept implying that I had somehow colluded with the Russians when there was in fact no evidence of that I want to thank Matt the caller by the way And Roger Stone you bring up something really good because this is a point that again I think I've noticed this and I feel like it comes in it goes This judge Amy Berman Jackson She seems to be mired in controversy all the time making decisions that rarely seem appropriate Is it safe to say that these people are acting in a partisan manner in your opinion Well she's specifically said in my sentencing dressing down where she which was a harangue she said a couple of things she thinks First of all she said stone you were convicted of lying to cover up for Donald Trump Line to cover up exactly what There is nothing revealed in my trial that Donald Trump did that I lied to cover up So that is false Then she said this case was really all about the search for Hillary Clinton's emails Well if that's true then she should have eliminated the prosecutor in my case because prior to prosecuting me as you represented Hillary Clinton and the Clinton foundation specifically in the illegal email server and email case So she had an egregious conflict of interest Look they wanted to give me 7 to 9 years for lying to Congress They wanted to give me specifically because of my involvement with foreign interference in the election Of course I wasn't charged with foreign interference in the election and there is no evidence of foreign interference in the election Yesterday I saw some clown who worked for Adam Schiff saying that Trump campaign solicited and received substantial assistance from the Russians and they benefit from Really What form did that assistance take Name it There is none and therefore what was the benefit There was no benefit These people can't admit that Donald Trump would have never been involved in politics before be Hillary Clinton because she was overconfident He out campaigned her and outworked her and the people were tired of the criminality of the Clinton crime family They were tired of the venal stealing of the Clinton foundation where yes Major decisions for example control of America's uranium reserves were sold to the Russians And who was it who took the sample to the Russians to look at before the sale By that would be FBI director Robert Mueller Who's conveniently MIA now retired and gone into Paradise You couldn't make this stuff up if it was an actual novel No I actually I think that in the wake of his report putting him before Congress was a giant mistake He didn't seem to know anything about his investigation When he was confronted about the prosecutor in my case his conflict of interest the fact that she'd worked for Hillary Clinton before she prosecuted me He said he was unaware of that Well she was his law partner How could he not know that his own law firm worked for Hillary Clinton You know that particular hearing I remember that and he really seemed like he was having a Biden episode He very foggy very either they're all good actors or these guys are up there in years and losing it What do you think I think that the Mueller investigation was the greatest single abuse of power in American history It was based solely on two pieces of fabricated evidence evidence the so called steel report which was a claim that Trump had been compromised by Russian prostitutes while in Moscow We now know that Hillary Clinton paid for that and it was fabricated with the assistance of Russian intelligence The FBI and the CIA both knew that but they used it anyway as the rationale for their investigation And then as I said earlier the crowd strikes report which falsely claims that the Democratic National Committee was the subject of an online hack by Russian intelligence and that and that that stolen data which was published by WikiLeaks Somehow benefited the Trump campaign Let's be clear I actually had to stay in trial before judge Jackson because Mueller claimed that my case was related to a case that he had brought earlier against 17 Russian nationals who he claimed back the DNC He promised judge Jackson that he would produce evidence gleaned from search warrants in that case at my trial and that that was the tie in He never produced any such evidence because there was no evidence So in other words Mueller was allowed to judge shop which is unconstitutional I also was barred by judge Jackson from raising any question of corruption or impropriety by the special counsel's office the FBI any member of Congress or the DoJ We now know that the.

"Out of their way. This was judge Amy Berman Jackson, who went out of her way to say we are not saying in this court's ruling should not be interpreted as saying that those executive privilege claims were not meritorious. Right. So in other words, applause, but we don't have a judicial determination that they were meritorious, but no indication that these were fraudulent or overly broad or pretextual claims of privilege. So point number three, plausible claims of executive privilege by the then sitting president. Point number four Eric holder didn't just say, okay, well, you know, president says it's executive privilege. That's it. We're done, you know, time to dust my hands. I'll, you know, Monty burns. No, he said, look, I'm going to turn all of these 100% of the documents were turned over to the aforementioned inspector general investigation. So independent because back then, we didn't have a president who fired inspectors general that he didn't like. There was a 19 month review by the DOJ office of the inspector general that cleared Eric holder of any wrongdoing in connection with Fast & Furious found no evidence that holder knew about the operation before 2011, which was exactly what he testified to Congress. By the way, that same investigation found various ethical lapses by 14 lower ranking officials and recommended various forms of disciplinary action. So again, not a not a rubber stamp by a pro Obama hack, independent IG investigation looked at 100% of the documents and wound up releasing almost all of them to Congress, which in turn released almost all of them to the public. So .4 and .5, again that investigation published those documents, Congress got them. And so over the remaining documents that was the lawsuit that I told you to put a pin in, they went to Amy Berman Jackson and said, hey, there's no more a valid claim of executive privilege here. A judge Jackson agreed, said, yeah, the production of most of these documents waves the privilege. So Congress deserves all the rest of the documents. But there is absolutely no basis to continue to hold Eric holder in contempt of court that is, quote, entirely unnecessary. Quoting from her opinion. If we get that from Bannon, I will be over the moon, right? We're not going to get that from Ben. So it does not now that I know we weren't doing our deep dive, but it does sound now a bit Benghazi esque, where it's like, okay, maybe something happened like, yeah, something happened in Benghazi and there may have been problems with security or something. But just trying to tie it to somebody forever. And essentially, Republicans using that as a fake scandal to try to tie it to somebody they're trying to take down who's like, I don't know what to tell you. I've given you everything. That's the similarity, I guess, right? I think that's right, and I think if you look at folks who were close to Eric holder and oh gosh, I should have said this. Eric holder was a partner at Covington in Berlin when I was an associate there. Between post Clinton, he rejoined the firm in 2001. So I do know Eric holder can't recall if I ever did work for him. I should have announced that. Folks close to Eric holder say that this kind of politicized Eric holder at the end of Obama's second term. He became sort of much more aware and involved that the right wing was sort of not fighting in good faith as a result of this. So I think there's a really fascinating story there of like you created part of the monster that you thought you had. I think we would be remiss not to point out, I remember it at the time, the tremendous amount of again continued not very coded racism in having an African American attorney general at an African American president. So those are some of the similarities that I think are there with Benghazi. I think Daryl isa, no doubt in my mind wanted to bring down Eric holder. And, you know, sort of ran with this crusade until he found another crusade to try and bring someone else down because Daryl isa is a piece of human garbage. Official opinion of opening arguments. Official opinion of opening arguments. So by way of saying all of this is people who are. So let me bring down this is not just to arm you about why your uncle Frank is wrong when he said, well you know Eric holder got up. It is to tell you that bringing contempt charges that were referred out by Congress to the DOJ against a recalcitrant witness is in fact a pretty significant process. And everybody who has previously been subjected to this process, you know, you can say, oh, you know, they didn't have to bust rocks or press license plates or whatever. But in every case that I've seen, they had to turn over information. And at some point you could keep issuing subpoenas to Steve Bannon. And if he keeps defying them, right? You keep going back to court and the courts like, wait, are you ever going to comply with these? And he can either say, you know, yes or something that isn't yes. And if he tells a court, something that isn't yes, then all of a sudden I think you'll break the mold. And I think the court will say, well, okay, nothing but going to jail is going to do this for you, huh? Okay, that's what I was going to ask. I mean, that's what it gets up to 'cause it sounds like so that's the common jail. We'll get the common jail at that point. Again, I think Bannon and I talked about this a little bit with Eli on cleanup. We forget Bannon cooperated with the Mueller investigation. I think, again, probably lied a lot. That was in his younger hippie days. Yeah. Right. I think Ben and at some point can be persuaded to give them the things that they want. And we now know a little bit more about what they want. And we know a little bit more about what they want. Thanks to a bar complaint against John eastman, I love it..

"In congressional procedure is they needed to set this vote for three days out in the future blah blah blah Okay Because that's what it's the rules of Congress that should be more important than the urgency of protecting our democracy Thank you very much So in any event here's what's going to happen They're going to vote them in contempt They're going to refer to the appropriate U.S. attorney That's the language in the federal statute And then here I'm going to read right from the law It says once the U.S. attorney and D.C. gets this criminal contempt of referral the U.S. attorney shall not may not shall present the matter to the grand jury for its action Here's what that looks like I was in grand juries for thousands of hours as a federal prosecutor When we investigate a crime like contempt of Congress we don't just investigate narrowly right We don't just say oh ladies and gentlemen the grand jury Steve Bannon failed to appear He had a lawfully issue issued congressional subpoena He has no legal defense for excuse Please return an indictment against him We investigate broadly And what we always investigate with every crime is the motive The motive For Steve Bannon to suffer criminal contempt rather than testify You just read the tweet step that lays out the motive One of the lotus Donald Trump pardoned him kept him out of jail Let him keep the stolen money that he grifted from Trump's face How is that not motive for Donald Trump to now say hey Steve I did you a solid I need a favor though do not appear before Congress and incriminate me This is the same gosh darn thing that Donald Trump and Roger Stone cooked up together Roger Stone lied to Congress because according to judge Amy Berman Jackson he was covering up for Donald Trump and then Trump pardoned him Steph this is conspiracy after conspiracy He's a conspiracy You laid out the Bannon and Trump And then just for again Glen people hear this because everybody forgets there's all criminals Everybody forgets which crime is which You said we won't know until someone asked you or all of Trump's pardons actually legal You said we won't know until one's challenged in court but the Roger Stone pardon was part of an ongoing conspiracy is judge AB Jackson said stone covered up for Trump So a court likely would invalidate if only we could find the will to fight in court for the American people that yeah the pardon itself was corrupt and now that it's a further criminal conspiracy right And the Department of Justice needs to tell us Why are you shielding Why are you not going after Donald Trump for these obvious crimes We deserve to know Yeah Yeah you said if only there was a governmental agency in power to seek justice on behalf of the American people That's snark Franklin is that snooki bang there I believe you are super excited That's a whole New Jersey boatload full of snark The joys kind Yeah Yeah I mean it's just about the double standard You said seems like FBI director Comey never stopped talking about his investigation of Hillary Clinton for her emails and it did serious damage to her candidacy Pollsters would say it was the tipping point after all the Russian interference and Facebook stuff Trump is not a candidate at the moment yet We hear nothing about him being investigated for actual crimes he committed Yeah this sports commentary about 2024 is if this isn't the biggest criminal we've ever encountered in the Oval Office is just it's mind bending And let me touch on the Hillary Clinton thing for a minute because I got a lot of pushback appropriately so because people are like well Glenn the FBI is not supposed to talk about investigations pending investigations My point is exactly Those are the norms and traditions And Comey the FBI violated those norms and traditions and tanked Hillary's candidacy because we couldn't we never stopped hearing about that investigation into Hillary's emails And then what did we get at the end of the day from Comey Well you know what We're not going to prosecutor But let me spend some time telling you how negligent she was Just in case anybody is still contemplating voting for her Right Let me completely tank her Now he shouldn't have done that And now people are like so the FBI shouldn't be talking about any investigation into Donald Trump now I said that's wonderful Those are our norms and traditions And we can carry them with us to the end of our democracy because I'm sorry And I'm not advocating for violating norms and traditions but I'm sorry because the Republicans used it to tank the democratic nominee And now we're supposed to honor them and carry those norms and traditions to the end of our democracy I don't think so Yeah Yeah Well by the way this was another important point on Twitter You said prosecution of Bannon for content from Congress will impact how Meadows Patel's cabin and others will deal with congressional subpoenas because hashtag justice matters Yeah I mean that's exactly it Because they've all escaped any consequence for doing this before right This is just become the norm I mean can you explain this inherent contempt Because that's what you were talking about is you know getting the Marshals and doing it like using every tool they have But obviously there's been some back and forth about what power they have without passing this or that Here's the power they have And first of all I think Bannon will be happy to sit in jail for a while because I think that's good for his brand His image is public relations effort to build more money from Donald Trump's face That's what he's going to do I don't think.

"We we need to preserve our resources for something else but the fact that they aren't telling us why they're doing things now in the bill barma he they did lay out and it wasn't garland it was Somebody else that the justice laid out their argument for why they wanted to keep that. Second half of that bill barham. Oh secret but it didn't to me. Stand up to the incredibly wonderful argument from judge. Amy berman jackson. Her legal arguments really seemed to outweigh. What the argument that. The justice department put forward so i appreciate. They made an argument but it was a week shit argument and i. I don't agree with it but at least they tried to tell me why. I wish they would do that with everything. Like i guess they did with the aging carroll case too but also disagree with that decision. So i don't know what the the problem is that. it's not clear. These are decisions that are made yet right. I mean so it's very possible. I don't know very possible. That garland has not decided whether to prosecute wilbur. Ross yet he might not be it. It might not be a priority. That doesn't mean he's decided not to do it. And once he comes out and says they're not prosecuted right then. He's created a problem for himself. I'm with you on that. Because that's where i am on the on going. After the head generals of the insurrection. Everyone's like i haven't heard word one yet. And i didn't hear about baruch either until he was in handcuffs. So right we don't know it until garland comes out and says i'm not going to do this. I i'm not gonna get mad about those specific things we there. Everyone's so black and white. Everything is so histrionic. If garland represents the president office of the presidency and trump in the aging carroll case. That's it he's in bed with trump and bar but everything is so nuanced. And i think we need to look at these decision by decision and and you know another one is whether or not he's gonna pursue obstruction of justice charges against the former president which has beautifully laid out in volume to the miller report. And he has come out and said he's not going to and the statute of limitations doesn't toll until next year so i'm waiting one. I think he's probably waiting to see what happens with sivan's and the other new york cases that are going forward which every day the barricades is part of that right What happens there. What happens with the trump organization. So there's a lot of information these are dynamic situations and we know there's a lot of wrongdoing but the many many different pathways forwarded pursuing that What i think is really important. It gives me some faith in garland though not Unimpeachable faith but what gives me. Is this man who cut his teeth. Dealing with the oklahoma city bombing. We know he cares deeply it if you watch his testimony and you look at his career. This is deep to him Going after right wing terrorism right wing of violence white supremacists and others who understands that threat better than any other attorney general. We've had including janet reno and he's far more effective inexperienced in dealing with these things that probably anyone in the us government right now. And i have every reason to believe that he is prioritizing that and that every single person who was involved with the insurrection on january sixth which i think was the greatest threat to our democracy in our lifetimes he is going to pursue that to the last scrap paper and he will go after them and their organizations and i'm grateful for that. There's more he has to do beyond. But i'm grateful that we have that kind of attorney general right now yeah agreed. I concur and you know. I just sort of want to really drive home. The point that i would hesitate to put merrick garland in the bad guy column until these decisions happen. Even on something like the gates charging decision is supposed to. There's been reported. It's gonna come out this month july. That may have been pushed back by the fact that greenberg asked for a continuance on his sentencing. Because there's so much crime ing in central florida. He couldn't possibly tell you all about it by august nineteenth. I don't know if that's going to push back but for people to be mad. That matt.

The first chapter opens with one of those anecdotes from elliott about his first trial as a prosecutor in the southern district of new york. It's thoughtful story about how elliot prepped for the trial and began to learn the unwritten rules. In what has become known as the sovereign district of new york because of their penchant for independence in following the rule of law and the prosecutors code. He talks about walking into the courthouse war room on the first morning of the trial and having his supervisor ask. What the hell are you wearing referring to his slip on shoes he said to elliott no laces not in front of a jury. Find different ones for tomorrow. His supervisor's name by the way was sullivan. Who's now federal appellate judge not emmet sullivan. Not the one. We know from flint's trial but another sullivan. Rich sullivan is his name. The trial should have taken a couple of weeks and per ellie was by no means the trial of the century or even the trial of the week for the southern district of new york but it ended up taking a lot longer for a few reasons. First the defense attorney had fallen into a manhole walking her dog and finish the trial a cane and wearing dark wrap around sunglasses talk about you know the jury sympathy and one of the prosecution's key. Witnesses disappeared for a week but eventually the trial did end and they were sitting in the courtroom waiting for the verdict. To be read. Sullivan was there and sullivan told. Ellie no matter what the verdict is. Do not react They they were prosecuting. Two counts in this case. The i was conspiracy to commit a robbery. The second was illegal possession of a firearm by a felon the defendant's name was robert ortiz. New york police department had caught him with a loaded gun in a fake police badge hanging around his neck and his plan was to use the gun in the badge to impersonate a cop to rob a coke dealer. The jury found him not guilty on the conspiracy count and found him guilty on possession of a firearm charge l. e. looked at sullivan and said so. Is that a win or a loss. And sullivan responded. This isn't the nfl we don't do wins and losses. The jury gave its verdict and we respect it. That's our justice system at work now for me. This is important story for lotteries. I for understanding the outcomes of a lot of the trials we've been following aren't just black and white. Of course we all want criminals who have crimes to be found guilty of crimes they commit but the justice system is the justice system. And there's always nuances much like when the justice department makes a split decision like in the case of the bill bar march. Twenty nineteen memo. We all wanted them to release the entire memo. I agreed with judge. Amy berman jackson's a assessment of the law. You know we didn't get quite the outcome we wanted. It released the first half of the memo and made an argument for deliberative process. Privilege to appeal the release of the second half. They will have to argue that case and the court will make a determination. We can disagree with legal arguments made by either side but they reserve the right to make them just as the court reserves the right to determine underlaw whether to grant or deny those motions. I think society we've gotten so caught up in wins and losses. We tend to overlook the justice process and make more history on it calls on the good of the entire department based on split decisions. I personally think the department of justice argument in the bill. Barham memo appeal will not stand up to legal scrutiny. At least i hope it won't. But i'll wait for those arguments and the decision before i call the entire department failure. Not everything is black and white. Like i said not. Everything is a win or loss and if we disagree we can push our elected officials to make reforms and that does take time. But that's how it works. Of course that doesn't account for actual miscarriages of justice and that the argument that there are two systems of justice. One for rich people one for poor people one for white people one for people of color that cetera. A dichotomy by the way that must be addressed And there is a court reform commission happening right now and. I hope that they're doing that. The point elliott was making here. Though with this is that the outcome was one of twenty cases he would try in the second circuit and one of hundreds or maybe thousands of cases. He tries a federal prosecutor not to mention his tenure supervising dozens of other prosecutors in the southern district then is director of the new jersey division of criminal justice where he oversaw five hundred plus prosecutors and other staff that would work on thousands of cases each per year. All of that gave him the experience that he learned from not just other prosecutors but judges defense lawyers cops victim services experts and even some defendants all the while. Bill bar never tried a single case as a prosecutor and that's an important point. Considering bar missed out on all that knowledge and experience as a prosecutor yet he led the prosecutors. He was in charge of all of them. I mean imagine leading a team doing work that you're entirely unfamiliar with and it's not just the work. It's the depth and knowledge of understanding. you would lack. And that would t- you up for a total disregard for the work that's being done on your watch. And an inability to defend your team against institutional attacks and the fact. That bar is a piece of shit. you know just adds to a recipe for failure in fact elliot identifies three fundamental traits that quote infected bars approach to his position. As the nation's top prosecutor. The first is at bars. Aligarh straight up no-holds-barred so to speak. He's a liar. Secondly bar is a partisan quote he willingly affirmatively an aggressively use the justice department as a political tool to help trump and quote and third bar position to impose his own philosophy about what a civil society ought to be at ellie earned his chops in the well of the courtroom and while he doesn't claim to know more than bill bar he was brought up in the best traditions of the justice department whose goals quote could never come at the expense of our integrity credibility and independence without those core values. He says as prosecutor your lost. So that is why it so important for elliot and make that point.

Judge Orders Release of DOJ Memo Justifying Not Prosecuting Trump

"Judge in dc ordered the justice department to release a document that they've been trying to keep secret for years. Now it's the document. The justice department drew up to justify not bringing criminal charges against then president donald trump for obstruction of justice. Judge amy berman jackson and her blistering ruling this week said that trump attorney general bill barr and other trump justice department officials had essentially lied to the public and lied to the court about bars decision. That trump wouldn't be prosecuted despite the muller investigation laying out more than ten potentially criminal instances in which the president acted to obstruct the investigation into russia. Interfering in the two thousand sixteen election to help trump win the presidency of the justice department is under very very very new management. It's going to be interesting to see if the justice department. Now under attorney-general merrick garland follows judge jackson's ruling and releases document about not prosecuting trump. Or will they appeal to continue the trump justice department's efforts to keep that documents secret. The clock is ticking. On that we've been watching this every day. Now because they've got less than two weeks to either file that appeal or let that document see the light of day and in either case it's to be a really big deal. If we do see that document and as the judge hinted in her ruling it turns out that bar and the trump justice department never substantively considered the evidence evidence against trump if it turns out the evidence that trump committed obstruction was just ignored. Well that puts a very hot potato. In the lap of the new justice department leadership under president biden as to whether they might pursue those charges against trump nail

Trump says Roger Stone has 'very good chance of exoneration' hours after sentencing

"Get some more and larger stones set and see our senior justice. Evan Perez is here our crime and justice. Chiba Polka. Pez is also working the story for Evan. You're inside the courtroom when you heard Judge Amy. Berman Jackson read out her decision. It was a dramatic moment. It was it was over an hour where she was essentially going through methodically. The aspects of this case including some of the arguments made by Roger Stone by the president and some of his allies that Roger Stone was being targeted for some For for his First Amendment right to stand up for president trump that he was essentially being targeted for being a political trickster. She says none of those things are true. I'll read you just a part of her remarks during the sentencing. Today she says quote stone wasn't obstructing not some secret anti-trump Cabal but he lied to Congress. You'll remember that. He was convicted of lying to Congress during testimony to the House. A House of Representatives as well as witness tampering threatening one of the witnesses in this in this case and so she took all of this on. She talked a little bit about some of his Some of his emails some of the threats that he made to Randy critical one of his associates And during that time well if we were all watching Roger Stone and he and he behaved himself mostly in court but during that time as she read some of his obscene emails. You can see him turnaround smirk and look at their two rows of his followers inside the courtroom today She also took to con the issue of of the politics. That are play in this case. she says quote he was Roger. Stone says he was not prosecuted as some have claimed for standing up for the president he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. One of the things we were watching today to wolf was the prosecution. John Crabs stood up today and essentially walked back to the original sentencing memo the recommendation that was made for seventy two seven seven to nine years From the prosecution team which resigned which quit the case in the middle of controversy over over President Trump's interference in his and the prosecutors the prosecutors stood up and he said he apologized for all the drama that happened in the past week wolf and he said that the original sentencing memo was essentially submitted. In good faith it was exactly according to Justice Department policy and it was within the guidelines that are established is interesting because we know the president. He clearly tried to influence the outcome of this trial from the very beginning. And the judge Amy Berman Jackson. She addressed that specifically. She did and it's not just the outcome of this trial. Let's the entire the entire Muller investigation where you see. The president has has inserted himself tweeting. It's talking about it at campaign rallies publicly talking about and the judge really today. That's what some of this was about. She wanted to address some of the influence and also the attempted influence and also the prosecutors who now have taken over this case day to said that the Department of Justice is. There's no political interference you know we're here to be fair and the judges continued. I mean we saw her going. After Roger Stone we saw her in some ways going after the president and then taking on the whole the political drama surrounding this case and what she said and this judge docs and she said the dismay and disgust at any attempt to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the JUDICIARY TO FULFIL. Their duty should transcend. Party this is a big moment in the sentencing. This was the overall I should say theme. I felt throughout her sensing proceeding was a larger message. Here because judiciary is under attack and this was a moment in time for the judge to defend the judiciary defend other judges and defend the system. Which is really under attack right continues to be under attack by the president. Today he railed against what's going on in the problem. Pardon you certainly. Did our guys stick around Evan and Shimon reporting for now. Let's go to the White House. Our chief White House correspondent Jim. Acosta is also working the story for a strip. The president was quick to speak out about Roger Stone's sentencing. That's right well. The president responded to speculation that he is about to pardon Roger Stone. The president suggested he will wait and see how the appeals process plays out for his former advisor saying he hopes stone is exonerated and while the president didn't offer stone at immediate. Pardon he didn't exactly close the door on that possibility either. President trump threw his support behind his convicted former adviser. Roger Stone but stopped short of offering a pardon to the dirty trickster just hours after he was sentenced in federal court. I'm not GONNA do anything. In terms of the great powers bestowed upon a president of the United States. I want the process to play out. I think that's the best thing to do. Because I'd love to see Roger Exonerated and I'd love to see it happen because I personally think. He was treated very unfairly and an event honoring rehabilitated prisoners. In Las Vegas. The president ripped into the jury forewoman at the stone trial accusing her of being an anti-trump activist that was in response to her facebook. Post defending the prosecutors in the stone case so if this woman was tainted I hope the judge will find that you was tainted. And if she isn't tainted that will be fine to now. You would know about a bad jury. Anybody here know about that now. The president question. How could be sentenced to forty months in prison in part for lying to Congress but MR trump unleashed a flat out falsehood of his own when he said stone was not involved with this campaign in Twenty fifteen? The trump campaign said it fired stone. Roger was never involved in the trump campaign for president. He wasn't involved early on long before he announced he may have done a little consulting work or something but he was not involved when I ran for president. And he's a person who again he knows. A lot of people having to do with politics. Stone is now part of a growing group of trump associates sentenced or awaiting prison sentences. Democrats worried the president is floating the idea of parts to try to keep those associates quiet while I think that he's dangled the pardon Often with Mrs with regard to Mr Stone and Mr Flynn in part to In my opinion to signal to them that if they stay on the team that they don't reveal further information that they might possess about the president that they'll be taken care of the judge overseeing stones trial took a jab at Mr Trump at one point sang at the former trump campaign adviser sentencing that he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. Mr Trump had been teasing the possibility of a stone. Pardon tweeting video of Fox host calling for leniency. The whole thing is enough to shake your faith in our justice system. Unfortunately president trump could end this tragedy travesty in an instant with pardon and there are indications tonight that he will do that. Trump allies are also reminding the president he has the power to pardon stone with GOP. Senator Lindsey Graham tweeting under our system of justice. President trump has all the legal authority in the world to review this case and terms of commuting the sentence or partying Mr Stone for the underlying offense as the attacks on the four women in the stone. Trial a fellow juror. In the case said the president and the Attorney General are doing damage to the Justice System. Big Cast doubt on the the bedrock of the equal administration of Justice. That is just so so important to our country I think he damages our democracy by attacking this way and I wish he would stop now as for a pardon for Roger. Stone trump
