Justice Department Says Walmart Helped To Fuel Ongoing Opioid Crisis

"The justice department is taking on one of the world's biggest companies walmart a civil suit alleges that the retail giant sold huge quantities of highly addictive opioid medications and they did so in a way that violated federal law. Npr's addiction correspondent. Brian man has been investigating walmart and his with me this morning. Hi there bryan morning david. So let's start with exactly what the doj is alleging here about walmart. So federal data shows walmart's pharmacies dispense to billions of opioid pills over the years often in rural communities that have been devastated by this addiction crisis with the doj says now david is that company executives failed to stop a lot of suspicious opioid orders. Hundreds of thousands of them. Walmart also allegedly failed to report potentially illegal opioid orders to the drug enforcement administration during an online regulatory conference last week. Deputy assistant attorney general. Daniel five signaled that this kind of lawsuit was coming. Armistice are the last two s i guess prescription opioid diversion the too many pharmacies for too long abdicated responsibility so now the doj says it plans to hold walmart accountable for allegedly contributing to this addiction. Crisis killed hundreds of thousands of americans will do we know more about these allegedly illegal drug sales at walmart and how how they sort of played out. Yeah been looking at this. And i spoke with his swannee. Sheeran who worked for walmart as a pharmacist in rural michigan in two thousand twelve when the opioid epidemic there was exploding and he says he quickly encountered red flags patients who would come in with. Suspicious prescriptions for huge doses of opioids. Sometimes he saw patients travelling long distances to filter opioid and also talked to patients. Who couldn't explain why they needed these powerful highly addictive. Painkillers visited direct indication. That does prescriptions are not for any genuine medical purpose instead of being abused by the patient and being distributed on this street sheeran alleges that walmart regularly ignored these warning signs and just went ahead and dispense the opioids anyway and the justice department. Alleges walmart did this all over the country. Knowingly filling prescriptions. that weren't for any legitimate medical. Need i mean it's such serious allegations suggesting that a major company like this contributed to such deadly crisis. What what is walmart saying. What is their response here. Yeah they're pushing back hard. They say that they tried in good faith. Over the years to comply with conflicting confusing laws that regulate opioid prescribing. Walmart's attorneys also argued that the justice department has been trying to embarrass the company allegedly part of an effort to squeeze leverage a big financial settlement. I should say the. Doj says that they've handled this investigation by the book. I mean i suppose this is a serious moment for walmart in terms of of both legal risk and potentially financial risk. Yeah yesterday's federal suit. David really up the ante but walmart was already being sued by a bunch of state and local governments that alleged. The company's opioid sales were irresponsible and dangerous. Cases are moving forward in ohio and west virginia and on top of the legal claims that could run into the billions of dollars. Walmart faces months maybe years now of headlines and disclosures about these opioid sales and that means having its name associated with opioid epidemic that continues to kill tens of thousands of americans every year

"assistant attorney" Discussed on KQED Radio

"News. This's all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Attorney General Bill Bar is not known for mincing words. But his remarks at a Constitution Day celebration last night are reverberating far beyond the walls of the Justice Department bar, criticized his own prosecutors and made incendiary comments about slavery and the Corona virus pandemic. With us to talk about what theater knee general said, is NPR. National justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. I carry high there. Let's start with bars. Comments on lockdowns over Copan 19. What did he say about that? Member of the largely conservative ions last night asked bar about restrictions on the attendance at religious ceremonies because of the Corona virus pandemic. The attorney general pointed out that his Justice Department has been sending letters to state and local governments about religious freedom. And then he started talking about proposals for a national stay at home order. Let's take a listen Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history. Now, the reaction of those comments was Swift. The highest ranking black lawmaker in the House of Representatives, Jim Clyburn, called those comments by bar among the most ridiculous tone deaf and awful things he's ever heard. Another striking element of bars, speeches that most of it seemed to focus on his own employees at the Justice Department. Absolutely. This was a very unusual case Oven attorney general calling out career prosecutors is a permanent bureaucracy, one that bar says is sometimes motivated by politics, he said. Too many prosecutors are looking for high profile targets to go after he called them. Headhunters and then Bill Bar said this And as I said, F b, I agents whose agent do you think you are? Don't say it isn't upon this way, but that that is the chain of authority and legitimacy. In the Department of Justice and Sasha by the way this morning, the FBI director Christopher Ray, told Congress that his agents work on behalf of the American people. And this, of course, is is not happening in a political vacuum. Critics have accused Bill Bar of interfering in cases to help allies of President Trump people like presidential advisor Roger Stone, former national security adviser. Michael Flynn. So carrying that larger context. How are these comments landing? You know, Bill Bar never mentioned the Stone or Flynn cases by name, but they definitely appear to be on his mind. The attorney general says he's the ultimate decider at the Justice Department. He says prosecutors need supervision and he like in some of his own workforce, toe, little kids. Letting the most junior members set. The agenda might be a good philosophy for a Montessori preschool. But it is no way to run a federal agency now. No surprise this speech offended some former Justice Department employees. One of them is Jody Hunt, who tweeted his support last night for the career workforce. Hunt was an assistant attorney general at the Justice Department until he left that job earlier this year. And other prosecutors pointed out that even though Bill Bar has previous experience at the Justice Department, he actually has never prosecuted a case. He's done other things there. Carrie, you've been on the justice beat for a long time. And so you know that there were often are always political controversies there. Is there anything about this moment with Bill Bar that stands out to you? You know, certainly, We've had some very controversial attorneys General Ed Meese and the Reagan years Eric holder under President Obama and then Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mu K. C under President George W. Bush. The difference this time is that Bill Bar seems to go out of his way to touch the third rail. He really seems to relish this combat with reporters in his own. Workforce. I'm not sure what the upside is for Bart to pick a fight with his employees right now, but maybe he just likes to get a rise out of people. He certainly has succeeded at that Sasha this afternoon. His spokeswoman, Cary Cooper, has pointed out that some of his speech may have been misrepresented, and she urged people to read his words for themselves. That's NPR's Carrie Johnson, who covers the Justice Department. Cary Thank you very much my pleasure. On the Gulf Coast cleanup is underway after a devastating blow from Hurricane Sally. The storm is now a tropical depression dousing the southeast. At least one person died in the storm.

DOJ won't reveal congressional candidate who asked for, received hacked info on their opponent

"With less than 100 days before the presidential election. U. S intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries are once again interfering in our democratic process. In 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his intelligence agencies to create chaos in our system, using a combination of social media manipulation, propaganda and other dirty tricks. President. Trump's Justice Department currently has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for disrupting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. As we first reported last November, 12 Russian military officers are still at large, charged with breaking into the Democratic Party's computers in 2016. Stealing compromising information and selectively releasing it to undermine specific candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election's just around the corner. Ah cautionary tale, the Russian hack. The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016. After this all into news. They never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing. This wasn't just a one time thing. No way. Russia doesn't do it that way. Robert Anderson should know. He spent 21 years inside the cloak and dagger world of spies and hackers overseeing the FBI's counterintelligence and cyber divisions. And tracking Moscow spy agencies, an alphabet of artifice, the FSB S V, R, and especially the G R U G. RU is military intelligence. So when we look at the attacks that happened during a presidential Races in 2016. You had military organisations inside of Russia attacking our infrastructure. So are the hackers or are the soldiers? So they're both on in most cases in most these units or not just hackers. They're probably some of the best mathematical minds in Russia. These air seasoned professionals that have worked away up the ranks to be in these units. To carry out the strategic attacks on behalf of that country. These are the hacker soldiers from G R U unit 26165, who, according to the Justice Department were responsible for breaking and entering into the Democratic Party's computers remotely from Moscow. Their names, ranks and faces are now on the FBI's most wanted list for stealing, among other things, the Democrats, strategic plans detailed targeting data and internal polling. G R U Colonel Alexander also joke commanded a separate unit. 744551 of his officers was in charge of spreading this stolen material to political operatives, bloggers and the media. Another hack state election boards. It wasn't some £400 guy in his parents Basement. No, this was a well choreographed military operation. With units that not only were set up specifically to hack into obtain information, but other units that were used for psychological warfare or weaponizing that this is not an operation that was just put together haphazardly. So that was the 26165 unit. The Justice Department's National security division is overseeing the Russian hacking case once they're doing that keystroke monitoring, Assistant Attorney General John Dimmers runs the division. Along with the deputies, Adam Hickey and Sean knew DOJ attorney Heather Al Pino worked with special counsel Mueller on the Russian indictments all have access to the underlying intelligence and have no doubt the rush. Shins interfered in the 2016 election. This really happened. Yes, that really happened. And we believe that if we had to, we could prove that in court tomorrow, using only admissible non classified evidence to 12 jurors. You ever expect to get the 12 Russian officials The trial. I would be surprised, But the purpose of the indictment isn't just that, although that's certainly one of the purposes, the purposes of this kind of indictment is even, uh, to educate the public. For a legal document. The 29 page indictment is a page Turner It. Details how U. S intelligence agencies tracked each defendant's actions, sometimes by the keystroke, revealing the fictitious names and phony emails used to infiltrate the Democrats, computers. And tracing the stolen data on its circuitous route from Washington, D. C. To Moscow. The information in the indictment is very detailed. You have descriptions of the Russian agents. Typing. Into their computers. Obviously, I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to reveal investigative methods. But the inside here is that behind every one of those Keyboard's is not night P address. It's a human being those indicted G R U agents. The U. S. Says one team, working out of a building in Moscow called the Tower created a website and a provocative character to disseminate this stolen material. Lucifer 2.0 So goose over 2.0 is a fictional online persona. It's all an effort. The Russian side to hide their involvement. And these guys are pretending to be one lone hacker. Correct, and that works. What it gives them is plausible deniability. Right. They don't need to work 100% as long as the Russians, Khun say. Wasn't us. Posing as goose A for 2.0. The Russians offered up stolen documents to Julian Assange, Jas wiki leaks and self proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone. It was all part of a broad campaign to disrupt the presidential election. But there was another less well known part of the Russian operation to undermine Democrats running for Congress. It started as large document dumps where goose for 2.0 was kind of taunting and saying, I have more Kelli Ward Burton was executive director of the D. Triple C. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When the Russians hacked the committee's computers, these bullet points at the top are the summary for how we need to win. They swiped and dumped on the Internet material, she told us cost millions of dollars to produce. Battle plans for congressional races, demographic research on voters and extensive dossiers on the weaknesses of their own candidates. So when we deliberate internally about anything, you know that's not intended to be made public, and that's what makes this so important to understand these as stolen documents. It's not different than Watergate. It's not different than When Republicans came into the DNC and stole documents from the file cabinets. It's the cyber version of that they came into our office and they stole Our documents. Documents were never intended to be public. And then they used that in the election, even Democrat party bosses or questioning his character. Ward was shocked when Republicans used the stolen internal materials in this negative ad. We reach out to them and ask them, you know, we way, said We've been the victims of a cyber attack by a foreign adversary. Will you make a commitment not to use any of these stolen materials in In the campaigner in the 2016 election, and they wouldn't make a commitment to do so, she says. In the months leading up to the elections, Russian tactics evolved, the indiscriminate document dumps became more frequent and strategic. There would be thousands of documents that would show up on one day and then they got smarter and he started to really specific documents. Related to our specific races or documents that were in art most targeted states and are most targeted areas.

China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

Officials said the case showed China had joined what they called the shameful Club of nations who provide safe havens to cyber criminals in exchange for them stealing intellectual property. Assistant attorney general for National security is John Demas. This case highlights the efforts being taken by the FBI and our partners to counter the threat posed by China. To the economic and national security of the United States. It also demonstrates the FBI's commitment to protect our nation. And sends a message that as director Ray mentioned just two weeks ago, when China violates our criminal laws and international norms, we're not going to tolerate The indictments came as the U. S Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, visiting London praised Britain for banning far away from its five G network. China says this decision will harm Britain's trade prospects Mr Pompeo said he wanted to build a coalition against what he called the threat from China. We want every nation to work together to push back against the Chinese Communist Party's efforts in every dimension that I described to you today that it certainly includes the United Kingdom. Includes every country way hope weaken, build out a coalition that understands this will work collectively to convince the Chinese Communist Party.

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus

"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

In Unprecedented Times, Governors Have Unprecedented Power

"Now let's move on to the power governors in the states have explained their responsibilities during a public health crisis so we're gonna do this what is your view of the constitution of the limited document the tenth amendment to the constitution stresses that they're in the powers not delegated to the federal government to research this thanks so I understand our constitutional law we understand that the states have what's called quote unquote the police power and it's not the power just to have a police force that power to regulate everything within the borders of the state all people and conduct except when it's taken away specifically given to the federal government so that's why it the governors of the states who are exercising that power under their own constitutions or because the state legislatures given that power they're the ones who decide whether businesses can stay open out whether we're allowed to travel outdoors what can be bought and sold because the states have the general reservoir power over everything within their territory finally local governments mayors county commissions do they have any unique powers or they beholden to what state government decides on last a governor specifically gives them the leeway to make their own decisions like an acting curfews or ordering residents to wear face masks in public question and that's really up to each state so some something could give if they wanted to their cities and counties that power that's the case in California for example but again that's just they launched a constitution each they could be different I'm joined by former Deputy Assistant Attorney General and visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution John you let's talk about re opening the economy and your piece explaining how the president can't force states to do it explain who as what authority there it's interesting so based on the police power states hi I have the primary thirty over in the opening closing of businesses for example restaurant in your hometown A. L. a public health standards that's under state law that under the police power the greatest use of the state police power in the system record is one where is their power to protect the public health and safety of the residents of that state hi imposing these lockdown orders that's all under state law now the federal government has a lot of tools at its disposal to try to get the economy reopened and going again what they're saying you can't do is actually reverse those lockdowns so the federal government can boost spending ranking give out more checks to more people her unemployment benefits it can actually directly assessed since it can reopen travel can encourage people to travel want to control whether businesses and establishments the open or not whether people go outside or not thanks still to this day in

"assistant attorney" Discussed on Politics: Meet Me in the Middle

"Have to request it. It still has to be my decision because maybe I'd like what it does for my life to be followed but right now there is no law and I think that's what we're both saying. There is no law that does it. The Trust Law doesn't do that in particular. Now you would need to pass a new law that would say that and then you'd have to develop a regimen either with regulations or with legal cases that you could bring you could do it either way. The Europeans have to an extent passed it. Now you've got to realize though if you pass that law it would regulate American companies but it probably wouldn't regulate China and China would probably still no when you were breathing and where you are and also you know. Look THOSE LAWS. Those APPs that really. That did not sit well with me. That's an interesting. Have you ever use? Take Talk Yeah well I mean the law all it could say is you must get the consent from the consumer in this next time. You're on favorite APP. A little pop up window comes up. Says if you want to continue on you must press okay and you accept by pressing okay. All of these rules So I'd like to bring up a kind of a a distant subject for a second. I'm I I like single malts bourbons I like to experiment in Nice restaurants and bars and learn new things but do you know how hard it is for a small producer of spirit to get into restaurants when you have the big players telling restaurants and bars. No no no. You're not giving up your shelf space to some new guy so to to what extent do you look at protecting? My interest of wanting variety price competition new product and protect the reality that the big guys are owning the shelf space because of the power. Look WE OF COURSE WE CARE. Ultimately it is the choice we want to ensure that you as the consumer will have the choices that you want But we also look at the economic factors play. We look at the supply and the demand. None of us have necessarily the right to have anything. We want in the local supermarket. That's privately owned. They make their decisions. We want to ensure that there's enough outlets enough distribution channels. What's great about technology? Is that if you don't find something at the local Ralph's or Safeway's you can now just go to your phone. Order it on You know half a dozen different outlets and some of them with free delivery. You'll have it by tomorrow. And maybe some of them you'll even have it in the evening and you'll cut out some more of the folks in the middle and so the technology has solved some of these issues. Maybe I didn't the president the the problem clearly enough that there's a guy in Malibu that has a new campaign called MoD. Do you think that moet-hennessy is going to allow that to show up anywhere where they have such power over the shelf space for Champagnes in restaurants and bars. I don't know if they won't if the quality is good. Quality is excellent and they do enough the marketing so that consumer awareness will be there and therefore the demand. I think it becomes difficult. Now if Hennessy comes in and puts restrictive covenants saying that as a condition of offering my product you cannot offer any of my competitors. That's something antitrust. Law will address but if the business owner on his own makes a decision. Look nobody has ever heard of Maud. There's not going to be the consumer demand. I'm not GonNa Waste Shelf space. I could sell five more hennessy products because in addition to that they're also going to bring in all these other promotions that they do. That's a decision that business owner will make out big big companies do flex their muscle often and prevent new competitors from coming in that take bits of their market. You know all of us and that WHO has a business school. We all had to learn a case. Study that we call the spaghetti sauce worse right so we remember the days. Where now Ragu did it differently back. Then they decided to lower the price of their spaghetti sauce because of their power beneath the price that it cost to make for years they made the price so low that put all the other spaghetti sauces out of business and they got another seven years of basically exclusivity. Their power allowed them to do that. Is that something that the trust department thinks is cool. Well it depends on the facts on the product. You know a thing you know. Nowadays you can order again that over the Internet spaghetti sauce what we would look at is. Are you pricing your product below market? And there's a test for this called predatory pricing in order to drive out competition but now the consumers winning as long as you're doing that because they're getting a smaller a lower price for a better quality or at least as good of a quality product or we can only buy a crappy product because nobody turns around and buys the good stuff because this is such a massive price difference if that higher quality is not worth the higher price and that's the market speaking but if the consumer's preference is the cheaper one. Now here's where the antitrust laws would step in. If they're dumb enough to sell below their cost for a long period of time they're just GONNA go out of business if they D- then can raise the price because others cannot enter and then they erect barriers. That keep somebody else from giving them price competition. Well that could be a situation where an antitrust violation would occur. Because you would meet what's called the predatory pricing test so I can't help but take the opportunity. Well you're here. The reason why this program exists is because our society is way too polarized and we're hoping we can bring people together and have them listen to each other with respect and solve issues you know have family members get back together and friends be able to dine together again. I can't help but wonder what it's like for you in the current environment and I'm wondering how much you can share with us about your experiences in Washington. There's no question we're living in a time where people are divided and perhaps technology has some reasons for that because we are getting our information and news through certain sources and we are Fed in Echo Chamber of information that we want to hear people have lost their ability to be objective about some of these issues. And we everybody looks at each other as if you are wearing a red shirt or a blue shirt. But the fact that the intolerance has grown for different ideologies is a troubling development in our society. Because you know lots of people blame your boss And I think probably inappropriately blame him because I think there's you know there's a lot of discussion That goes on about some of these issues. An obscene it You know the fact that. There are roadblocks thrown to just the proper functioning of the government. The way our forefathers wanted people also make a difference and say as a historian. I'd say that so you look back and you take for example. George Washington George Washington chose to have a cabinet where he brought in Alexander. Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. He was trying to create a big tent. It depends on the personality. So if the electorate chooses an authoritarian minded leader or a hyper partisan sort of leader. You'RE GONNA get one sort of approach but look people come to a lot of these jobs with crate level of passion dedication and sacrifice in order to improve the system. Well making delaram. I speaking about commanding half our audience would approach this program listening to you with incredibly critical mines and the other half would would potentially adopt everything you have to say and be saying. Yeah The reality here is obvious to us here at this table. Spending this time with you. Is that you personally put in the kind of energy intellectual power education and time that we are very grateful for and it doesn't matter what your party affiliations are and it doesn't matter whether or not We agree with everything you have to say. But what we are is very impressed with you. What you've chosen to do to try to help our society and please do something about the cell phones. Okay thank you so much again. It's a privilege to serve and I should also say that all my colleagues across the government and in both parties throughout we may disagree on on the margins of some policy but across the country. You know you look at the SEC chairman the FCC chairman the FTC chairman The CFTC some of these are some of the most brilliant people with incredible character That are sacrificing. Conserving each day. And I think most of your listeners should know the quality and I thank you for allowing me this opportunity to share some of my experiences and my thoughts with you. Hopefully it'll help improve the dialogue. Well thank you. I hope you'll come back at some point. I know I know we kept you too long. And Ed Larson always a pleasure.

"This is national native news on Tony. Al Gonzales in January two thousand seventeen to agents from the South Dakota Division of criminal whole investigation went onto the Pine Ridge reservation to investigate a crime committed off the reservation. They were accompanied by a bureau of Indian affairs. Agent and one of the state agents spoke with the suspect as six circuit state judge throughout the statement saying D. C.. I lacked authority in Indian country. Now the South South Dakota Supreme Court will decide the issue before the case continues Victoria. Wicks reports Morgan Cummings was eighteen years old when agent Dane Rasmussen knocked on his door and asked to speak with him. Cummings made statements about the Crimes Rasmussen was investigating and was eventually charged and prosecuted leading up to the trial. The defense attorney asks that coming statements be suppressed and the trial judge agreed. The state appealed that decision during oral arguments assistant attorney general. Stacey Hegi says Rasmussen employed a knock and talk method of making contact with Cummings something any ordinary citizen has the implied license to do Hegi says as the trial judge aired by considering agent Rasmussen to be a law enforcement officer rather than a member of the public the defense says Rasmussen and the other agent agent were acting as law officers when they arrived in police cars and questioned a suspect attorney. Terry Pagoda says the only way to right. The wrong is to suppress coming statement and we cannot dispute the fact that at the time that this occurred state law was that they did not have any jurisdiction in Indian country. You can collar. Aw knocking implied license. Whatever the state calls it it doesn't make any difference? They did not have any Saudi. They're put iota says there is no justification for the agent's actions even if they didn't know they were acting contrary to law as the state suggests for National Native News. I'm I'm Victoria.

No, it actually said that they were, you know, they thought everyone else was so pretentious to they had to limousines, go to the inaugural. Party. So, and they drove the unpretentious Germans Polska. They also, you know, that's when they knew things were getting really bad, and they were destitute when they might have to sell the Porsche and the townhouse. Oh, no. Not sell a Porsche.

"Continue with former assistant attorney for the southern district of New York. Andy McCarthy is with us how much trouble do you think Jim Komi is starting with him leaking information as we now know to create the atmosphere where a special counsel would be created that was his goal. But that was government information. He was leaking out number two. The fact that he signed the first five warrant, and we now know it's an unverified -able dossier, which was the bulk of information for that it also excluded. I think the very important information to the FIS accord judge in that first five warrant, which is that Hillary Clinton bought and paid for it. And they didn't tell the judge the FIS a judge in the application everything they needed to tell them and they clearly committed a fraud on the court. What would the penalty for that? What would the charge me for that? Well, I don't think there'd be a criminal charge against the director of the FBI coming out of the FIS war. And I think, you know, I I actually don't anticipate criminal charges and a lot of ways, Sean, I think that if if criminal charges of the price tag to getting to the bottom of this, and we're never going to get to the bottom of this. I think the most important thing is that we find out what happened here. And if it turns out people violated the law, then you know, then that's on them. And they got to do any doubt. Let me run through the list that Hillary Clinton had a rigged investigation into her Email server scandal, if she had top secret classified information on that server, isn't that a violation of eighteen USC seven Ninety-three a clear violation. Sean, I spent three years saying that. Yes. Do you believe that if that when she deleted subpoenaed emails had people do it for her use bleach bit too acid wash the hard drive beat up devices with hammers removed sim cards? Do you believe that the intent was to destroy evidence for the underlying crime and obstruct Justice? I do believe that per intent was corrupt. Yes. Do you believe a prosecutor a normal?

Sean is I've always thought that MRs Clinton's motive was to conceal the degree to which the State Department was put in the service of the Clinton foundation when she was at the State Department, but there wasn't an intent to avoid to destroy evidence. I think there was an intensive destroyed government records, which are not allowed to do. And besides obstruction of Justice. It's it's it's a crime in and of itself standing alone to destroy government records, whether you know, regardless of whether they're connected to a judicial proceeding. All right. And you also believe that FIS of those likely of fraud committed on the court. Yes. I do believe there was on the court with the FIS.

"Welcome to glad to be here. The messages back and forth were stenciled private. How did they find their way into your hands? So discord works through authentication. And so if someone who wants to investigate far-right Nazi's fascist white supremacists. If they work at it. They can create a false identity that appears to be another fascist. They can then become vetted, then they can be allowed into inner rooms more, quote, unquote, elite chat rooms, and so forth, and essentially the account has access to all the pertinent chat rooms in the server, and then you can basically use particular software to pull out every individual chat. And then you can archive all the chats and develop a search engine to make the chats readable one of your pieces had some audio from chatter among those in the patriot front, I have a Glock nine millimeter Glock, and then three A R fifteen and all these are eighty percents women are retarded like I was in the same logic as you. And then I realized that one I was like. They can't like do this small percentage of maybe irrational. But like exactly that's why you beat them patriot front in particular. Those audio clips really highlight that misogyny is a critical element of fascist and authoritarian thinking, which is something that not everybody has picked up on. Also, clearly patriot front talks a lot about accumulating weapons. And preparing what's really threatening to is also people that are on their periphery who might be collecting weapons who might suddenly snap one day or work up towards something that actually gets to a third level of insight that the discord chatter offers and that is that in the aggregate, it kind of dispels the myth of the lone wolf perpetrator if you go back and look at their chat history. You find out that maybe alone physically at the moment of the crime, but not alone in spirit. It's very clear that in terms of their frame of mind before they might try to kill lots of people. They do see themselves as acting in relation to something that is of held and believed in via larger group of people. So in that sense, they might not have needed that much help logistically, but in terms of psychologically, bringing themselves to that point that is something that a lot of people are involved with. So you can't really think of them as being lone wolves one example that I would mention is Taylor Wilson the Saint Charles man already facing terrorism charges for stopping an Amtrak train is now facing federal gun charges. He tried to hijack an Amtrak train the charges include possession of an unregistered barreled rifle an unregistered machine gun, and he was someone who was at Charlottesville at his Saint Charles home, the FBI later discovered alt-right and Neo Nazi literature as well. As more amunition and gunpowder he was a participant in. Chats with a number of different groups, including the traditional Workers Party, national socialist, legion. And he was sentenced to fourteen years in prison after he was arrested, and that's an example of someone who acted alone, but still was certainly acting as if he was connected and motivated by a larger network, you could say that dischord identifies crimes that were copycat crimes. But I didn't even think copycat is quite the right word. It's more like a mosh. They're done specifically in tribute to those who have been violent before them, right? The way I would describe this is that because a lot of it has to do with memes or images. They'll take anyone that does violent racist. Misogynist act that they can relate to and they'll break apart the imagery around that person and start remixing it, and then identifying with that they'll idolize Charles Manson or Breivik the man who shot all those people in Norway in the case of Dylann roof there was one group called bowl patrol, which took the imagery of his bowl haircut and remixed that to develop memes and messaging there were also the Clark brothers who lived around Washington. DC these Washington DC brothers and their possible connection to Senegal shooting suspect Robert Bowers. They were in touch with the man that massacre the Jewish people in Pittsburgh and one of those brothers was arrested on weapons charges days after allegedly posting on social media that. The shooting in squirrel hill was quote, a dry run for things to calm. What's been kind of amazing to me is that even regular people sometimes reached out to us like they've said they're suspicious that their niece might be dating a dangerous white supremacist, and they asked us to figure out is this the same guy as I think this guy is because he might have the same nickname or whatever. And in the case where that inquiry came in. It was true. It was that guy was able to take action there. You would think that whatever. Unicorn riot is doing pales in comparison to what the FBI is collecting towards the department of homeland security is collecting for the purposes of anticipation, the next attack is the happening completely by chance. I had an encounter with a US attorney or assistant attorney, I think and they were telling me that the FBI. I didn't have information like this. And that they had found it very difficult. Even to get subpoenas to investigate Facebook group chats, even when there was a lot of evidence. It seems pretty clear that police state intelligence investigators weren't really on the ball before Charlottesville happened. They were taken by surprise to some extent. So they've been somewhat. I think pushed into action by making these kind of data sets available, and then that's enabled a wider public community. To raise the alarm and say, this is very dangerous people affiliated with racists and misogynists had been committing mass murders in the United States. And so I think that the picture is somewhat changing, Dan, it is axiomatic that sunlight is a disinfectant, and therefore the more that we can learn about these groups, especially the most violent ones, the better the society will be on the other hand. Hand great. We now know about the bowl patrol courtesy of unicorn riot. And so do a bunch of prospective Volpe trollers in fact, so do maybe a much larger number because it's now disseminated via mass media. The driving force with these groups is really about power and intimidation and appearing to be strong. And so something like bowl patrol, if they're internal messages get exposed, and it shows who's involved how they put it together how they're trying to manipulate people into buying into what they're selling that doesn't just reveal to everyone what their mechanisms are it also makes them look weaker. And that's a very important thing when it comes to dealing with authority movements because it shows that they don't know what they're. Doing in terms of security. It shows that they just sit around fighting with each other a lot it shows that they don't get along. They don't have a real plan. They can't put together a rally. They can't do all of the basic things that a political organization would want to do to advance its goals. So yes, it's true that by having an archive of incredibly derogatory unpleasant disturbing material that it's possible someone might connect to that. But this is also the chance to essentially be a kind of information vaccine if you will you'd sort of say, this is the toxic material. This is how it works. This is what it's trying to do. It's actually very weak. And then that demystified the whole process for someone who is just trying to understand who might be vulnerable to this thinking, it takes the confusion out of it for a person like that. And it says what a bunch of losers, and it gives a person. Many more reasons to walk away by using their own content and their own chats against them. We haven't seen any evidence come up that says, oh, well, you guys came up in discord leaks. And you look even better than you did before there's really been no evidence of that kind of line of thinking happening, Dan. Thank you. Yeah. Thank you. It's been really great to talk to you. Dan, fight is co-founder of the nonprofit media organization unicorn riot. Coming up in documenting the mechanics of jihadi propaganda. Our scholars doing more harm.

But with the Muller investigation, the national security division of the Justice department is in good hands both at the career level, which you've already said and at the political level. Yes, the assistant attorney general now charge in Nashville division.

And he is someone who is dedicated to protecting the national security interests of the United States and not political. And if you. Look at the leadership below that of the national security division. It has stayed almost entirely in place as it should be. And we've seen this. This'll be the third administration now where there's been a continuity because national security professionals are not driven by party. Let's talk about Bob Muller who shows up periodically throughout your book. You were his chief of staff, and you know, he has gone on to play a role very different from the role in which you served under him. How do you read from having worked very closely with him? What is your read on the state of play with with respect to the investigation? You'll Ben easy.

"She was also deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice department. Jennifer Rubin is considered conservative opinion writer at the Washington Post and an MSNBC contributor, Julia Ainsley national security injustice reporter for NBC news, welcome to all three of you, Julia. Let's start with you because you've been involved in our reporting that there were many people who the FBI could have interviewed didn't interview some who approached the FBI. And all week, we've been speaking to FBI experts. Probably something Lisa can confirm to us who said they have to be. I could have been interviewed ten times as many people. They can put more agents on the case. They could have done it. Something has constrained them from doing so what do we know about this Julia? That's right. Elliott set a lack of will on the part of the FBI. But this works really differently than a criminal investigation where the FBI can lead wherever the bread crumbs take them. They were given at the beginning of the week, a list of only four witnesses that they were allowed to interview that later expanded. But we believe by only a very small window and they still had to go back to the White House when they wanted to go interview additional witnesses. And as we learned today more than forty of those witnesses, potentially some who went to Yale with Ramirez and with cavenaugh others from high school who were able to be a character witness were not contacted. As we understand from the FBI perspective, that's because they've been constrained by the White House. The White House wants us to wrap up quickly, and frankly, they aren't looking for bombshells. So purely based on the people who we believe the FBI has been allowed to interview. There may be others that we just simply don't know about that haven't come public, but Pierre-Louis based on the ones we do know about, we don't believe that there will be any real bombshells tomorrow. And I think it's telling that Mitch McConnell has already scheduling his getting that underway who wanna look at that report tonight. But I don't think he's expecting anything in that report to change his schedule to get Kavanagh confirmed this week does feel a little Lisa like we're prejudging because the just don't understand if Mitch McConnell. Schedule that vote as soon as he seen the report. But Lisa last Friday, there was this sort of a collective sigh of relief amongst those institutionalists like Jeff flake or those people who thought look potential cloud is being lifted over lifted from the Senate Judiciary committee and the supreme court around this nomination by moving forward with an investigation. Could we be in a situation where it's the worst of all worlds where they had some sort of investigation and it wasn't thorough. I think we are in that worst of all worlds because it certainly looks like White House whitewash. You have a situation where they essence have dictated according to all reports. A few number of people who could be interviewed. The vast majority of people who have informant from pertinent have not been interviewed by leaps and bounds, and they were turning their training reporting early. They could take tomorrow even interview more of those people who've come forward including Brett Kavanagh's college roommate for his freshman year who said he was never interviewed by the FBI, not back in the initial FBI investigation or this.

"To a russian bank as the head of the justice department's criminal division you've said that putting brian bench husky in charge of criminal division at justice could prove to be an a stork mistake what was it stake here and what concerns you most now that he's going to be moving into this job listen to this job description to be the assistant attorney general in charge of the criminal division to be in charge of six hundred federal prosecutors in deciding the prosecutions for the most serious crimes in the united states of america the man who was nominated by president trump has never had a trial in his life not a civil trial not a criminal trial i'm not sure he's ever been in a courtroom and he's in charge of the criminal division now that's bad enough i mean that is just gross negligence to pick someone who's never been in a courtroom to head up the criminal division of the department of justice gets worse turns after the trump transition he returned to private practice here in washington and took on his client an organization known as the alphabank alphabank is a russian bank run by an oligarchy this oligarchy so close to ladimir putin that when he opened his london office for the alphabank he invited putin then president of russia to be a special guest and putin showed up they are that close now alphabet just coincidentally ten turns out to be the argon is aviation that's the computer was paying against the trump campaign computer during the course of the last election campaign and alphabank unfortunately has been under investigation for a number of things so this mr bench cow sqi agrees after trump was elected after the allegations about russian interference to take on alphabank as a legal client and what was his assignment take a look at the mention of the alphabank in the steele dossier and decide whether alphabank should should sue steel so i mean he was up to his eyeballs with this oligarchy spank friend of putin at a time when he was a spiring to be the head of the criminal division of the department of justice i'm not making this up yes so many coincidences well and let me add i mean added as well that when we asked him will you please recuse yourself from anything involving russia he said well as a system general recused myself if it specifically about alphabank but when it comes to russian investigation no i won't recuse myself and you know they're people playing out different scenarios if this president decides to try to fire rosenstein mister bench cow scheme now could be in line to take it over in terms of designating whether it's going to be a special counsel investigation would continue senator one last question before we let you go you've been a leader as long as i've been in politics on fighting for immigration reform and fighting behalf of immigrants in this country what do you make if the idea of reinventing or abolishing ice that is sort of taking hold and parts of the party is something democrats should be getting on board with and if not how do you think we should approach approach that issue i don't think that's a crash notable position of a honest with you i believe in i think i've got evidence to prove it there's been gross incompetence when it comes to ice and the agencies of the department of homeland security the fact that they would separate under zero tolerance three thousand children forcibly removed from their parents and now they can't link up the parents and the children under quarter to reunify them is the most dramatic case of incompetence that i've seen at the federal government so am i critical vice you bet i am as well as the other parts of da day chess that are responsible for this travesty but saying abolishing is like saying we're going to get rid of the department of justice things will be okay you know we have jobs to do some of them are very important and we want competent people doing them this euro tolerance policy three thousand kids separated as a collision between cruelty and incompetence i'm making excuses for ice any other president would have cleaned shop over there long ago yeah i was going to say obviously i think a new immigration policy immigration reform is the single most effective goal that we should push for his democrats right but it does seem like this has become a bit of a.

"Trump administration's nominee for this job has been an odd choice all along and here's the question we asked mr bench kaczynski you're seeking the position of assistant attorney general in charge of the criminal division with six hundred prosecutors that you will direct please tell the committee how many cases you have prosecuted as a lawyer i civil cases the answer oh well how about criminal cases how many criminal cases have you prosecuted in your lifetime as a lawyer none how many motions have you filed before a federal court none wait a minute you were being chosen to head up the criminal division of the department of justice and you have no experience you have never prosecuted a case never never once been in a federal courtroom not one time that's fact it is an odd thing for the trump administration to have chosen someone to lead hundreds of prosecutors in the criminal division of the justice department when that person has never in their life filed a motion in federal court let alone try to case right but this particular nominee in addition to that almost bizarre lack of relevant experience is also controversial for another very specific reason again his name is brian bench kaczynski he's a former staffer to senator jeff sessions before senator sessions became attorney general mr bench belsky was also part of the trump transition when the trump transition was over because trump was getting sworn in the administration was starting brian bench cow ski put in a request that he be considered for a job at the justice department he put in that request and then he left and he went back to private practice specifically he went to work for a russian bank called alphabank which at the time was trying to clean up its reputation after it appeared prominently.

"Execute or i would often ask my agents were assistant attorney general to complete investigation by a date certain and their response to me quite rightly was we'll do our best but we need to follow the facts and the law and that's what the special counsel is doing if he sets an arbitrary deadline and i have a lot of skepticism that he would have used rudy giuliani as his spokesman even if he were going to do it you think this might be giuliani trying to put pressure public pressure on muller more likely than not that's exactly what it is when the president tweeted out that i hereby demand the doj look into the fbi did did that language i mean concern you as a former attorney general i mean he does have the constitutional authority to you know to really he has wide constitutional authority he has constitutional authority to ask the department of justice to investigate it's the circumstances here that are so concerning number one no factual predicate you know when an fbi agent begins an investigation they sit down and they do a form that says here's the factual predicate and the potential illegality or they tell their superior that special agent in charge what is the violation of law what's the factual predicate again no evidence whatsoever except what is going through the presents mind that's one dangerous point but also we've been through some dark here's where officials asked or directed investigation without any factual basis simply on suspicion or for political motives and i'm afraid that's what's happening you do believe the credibility of the department of justice the fbi is being permanently armed i think it has been harmed i say that with great sadness and i've spoken on the floor of the senate to say that there are dedicated hard working people working the fbi day in day out they make cases they put their lives in danger.

"Jail once they were arrested they say he hoped with the hushmoney plan to keep them quiet and he helped with concocting the false story to put a shine on what had happened there without burglary assistant attorney general robert murdiono was indicted in conjunction with watergate in 1974 he was automatically convicted he was sentenced to ten months in prison in nineteen 75 but then a nineteen seventy six his conviction was overturned and his conviction was overturned for very unusual in specific reason assistant attorney general robert mardyan did not have to go to prison for watergate he got his conviction thrown out he got a sentence thrown out in the end for a very specific reason because in the middle of his trial for watergate his lawyer collapsed in the courtroom and wasn't able to go on his lawyer was sick he passed out in court during murdiono trial he was too sick to continue with his representation of his clients the judge informed a junior lawyer who had just been helping with the case hey you you're now believe defence counsel for your client the assistant attorney general of the united states who has been criminally charged in this case that junior lawyer was thirty three years old at the time i'm what now but he stepped up he mounted that defence in nineteen 76 by which point the original distinguished defence lawyer had died that young assistant who had been unexpectedly thrust into that case he got his client off he got robert mardyan off got the jailtime thrown out got the conviction thrown out and that was probably the end of rubber mardyan being famous even as a watergate figure but it was really the start of something for that kid lawyer who unexpectedly ended up in charge in that case in those dramatic circumstances that kit lawyer was named tom green and tom green has been representing political figures in massive political scandals ever since his strange start in watergate after accidentally ending up defending the assistant attorney general in watergate tom green went on to represent defendants in the whitewater scandal and in the irancontra scandal and in the long forgotten bill clinton state department passport scandal when the same process.
