Does the whistleblower have the right to remain confidential?

"The former assistant United States Attorney in the writer for the National Review and the fox news specialist discussed with the blower while on Chicago's morning answer with van prop and Amy Jacobson again on Adam Schiff refusal to release transcripts of the behind closed doors customer we can still have this sort of running a look a complaint against ship which is released these transcripts a turn these transcripts around so that they can be included in the discussion and real time not to we're going to release his friend we're going to have this testimony that we're gonna decide if this is somebody that's helpful to the case it's a call then I'll decide if the transcript will be released released a transcript it doesn't take long to type this thing up yeah they were absolutely right about that they should have the transcripts available to them when they are examining the other witnesses because the information now you know the way the way this would work if the federal rules of evidence apply which they don't in a hearing like this would be that you can't impeach a witness with another witness's statement but you can use the information that you get from other witnesses as a good faith basis to challenge the testimony of other witnesses the problem that the Democrats have had from the beginning here and I think the problem but the public will have with the the process here is that it's not fair ship has taken to himself the ability to pick and choose what information gets put out the ability to pick and choose what witnesses are allowed to testify nobody thinks he is an honest broker he's a he's a political partisan hardball operatives and if I were the Republicans I would suggest that they have to play the hand they're dealt and they you know he can block them from calling witnesses I would make him the focus of the hearing because he is the focus of a hearing sitting there in the middle he's the most imposing consistent figure in this whole process so why would keep bringing it back to him that he's been utterly unfair and that he's running essentially a kangaroo proceed yeah I mean you Jennifer Williams spent staffer she was you know depose on Saturday I would like to have her testimony be public but what about the whistle blower do you think he should be on mass than we should have a public you know hearing for him yes okay first of all and it it should be done before Ben and testifies the game that the Democrats applying is they apparently you need to see this and then then the transcript of the closed door testimony when they start to ask about the whistle blower and whether he lied stuff to the what's the blower and whether he's in cahoots with the whistle blower ship jump sand and cuts it off on the on the ground that they're trying to reveal the whistle blower he's got a legal right to remain confidential he does not have a legal right to remain confidential first of all the whistleblower statute that they're talking about does not apply to this guy because this is we're not talking about intelligence activities this is the president dealing in foreign policy with a head of state so the statue doesn't even apply to a but even if it did it only imposes a confidentiality requirements on the inspector general of the intelligence committee or community and even with respect to the inspector general confidentiality can be pierced if he thinks under the circumstances it's unavoidable that the guy will become public or and this is very important if the matter if there was any way the matter was likely to be referred to a a court for trial or to the justice department for potential prosecution what that underscores is people's desire to be confidential it's something that we defer to only so far and no further once you're in a position where your information is relevant to an important proceeding like the judicial trial or I would argue like an impeachment proceeding you will lose your interest in being confidential has to take a backseat to the public's interest and the proceedings interest in getting at the truth

"For voters to learn about data so it's not just whether there are more candidates running. It's also what the candidates are doing in another year. When Democrats did go onto lose eighty four Jesse Jackson ran on a platform many called world extreme at the time but actually sounds mainstream now free community college single payer healthcare and a rainbow coalition a Rainbow Coalition of human rights for all I mission to feed the hungry clothe the mic it the house of the homeless to teach the illiterate to provide jobs for the jobless and the choose the human race over the nuclear race and Jackson proved? He wasn't politically fringe that year Jesse Jackson won one out of every five votes in the primary he won five primary outright and registered millions of new voters Democrats who were tuning in partly for him familiar while the dynamic is back in play. Hey Right now. This large Democratic field basically generating a large amount of interest thirty three million people watched the first debates. We'll see if that continues tonight and tomorrow take it all together and the trends are pretty clear. More choices are hard. They can be mentally exhausting but that exhaustion comes from working out. which is the thing that makes you stronger building up? A political movement can be like building a muscle. You have to work it. Wasn't it the Great M._C.. Missy Elliott who asked is it worth it. Let me work you know trump won the electoral college after a long large primary have Democrats want want to flip that and reverse it. They need to get through a long large primary of their own now up next. DONALD TRUMP'S INTEL chief pick is hitting all kinds of turbulence. We'll explain one of the Republicans who pose some searching questions for Bob Muller in that big hearing is now on deck to enter the trump administration Asian if he can get past headlines like this Intel officials unloading Congressman John Ratcliffe is the least qualified person ever nominated to this post fellow. The Republicans are concerned and they wanted to prove you can move beyond die-hard conservative persona that he's had to protect Intel's independence rackliff meanwhile burnishing his national security verity credit touting how he put tears in prison as a prosecutor citing his work on a specific terror case but it turns out his name doesn't even appear in any of the trial our record for that very case meanwhile N._B._C. reporting no evidence he ever prosecuted any terror cases to some rough start for a Senate bedding for a big post and even in G._O._p.. Hands it's not every Republican pick gets through with trump. His last two names voted for the Fed failed to get through the Senate after new reporting sunk their nominations. I'm joined now by former Federal Prosecutor Joyce van Nice to see you on this bit about him claiming he was involved in cases that he wasn't and how big a deal is that for someone in this with this track record. You know it seems to me that it's a very significant overclaim to say that you put terrorists in jail when you didn't. I suspect that that when the record is finally reviewed it will reflect that as an assistant United States attorney with responsibilities wants abilities for terrorism and national security he did oversee investigations and and the fact that they didn't go to trial might be important. It might not not be but the reality is that even as a prosecutor if he had been doing serious terrorism cases. Let's say he actually had been the lead prosecutor on the Holy Land case waist which it's clear that he was not that alone doesn't qualify you to be denied..

"You served as an assistant United States Attorney leading a homicide US attorney for the district of Massachusetts and later Northern District of California assistant Attorney General for DOJ's criminal division and the FBI director so thank you I appreciate that but having reviewed your biography it puzzles me why you handle your duties in this case the way you did the report contradicts what you taught young attorneys at the department of justice including to ensure that every defendant is treated fairly or is just a Sutherland said in the murder case a prosecutor is not the representative of an ordinary party to a controversy but about sovereignty who's interested in criminal prosecutions not that it shall win a case for the justice shall be done and that the prosecutor may strike hard blows but he is not at liberty to strike foul ones by listing the ten factual situations and not reaching a conclusion about the merits of the case you unfairly shifted the burden of proof to the president forcing him to prove his innocence a legal form to do so and I've never heard of a prosecutor declining a case and then holding a press conference to talk about the defendant you noted times in your report that you have a legal duty under the regulations to either prosecute or decline charges despite this you just regarded that duty as a former prosecutor I'm also troubled with your legal analysis you discussed ten separate factual it patterns involving alleged obstruction and then you fail to separately apply the elements of the applicables statutes I looked at the the the ten factual situations I read the case law and I have to tell you just looking at the flint matter for example the the the four statues that you cited for a possible obstruction fifteen oh three fifteen oh five fifteen twelve be three in fifteen twelve seeks to single when I look at those concerning the flint matter you fifteen oh three is an apple go because it wasn't a grand jury or trial jury impaneled and director call me was not an officer of the court as defined by the statute six section fifteen oh five criminalizes acts that would obstruct or impede administrative proceedings at those before Congress and ministry of agency the department of justice criminal resource manual six of the FBI investigation is not a pending proceeding fifteen twelve be three talks about intimidation threats of force to tamper with a witness general Flynn at the time was not a witness and and certainly director call me was not a witness and fifteen twelve C. two talks about tampering with the record I mean as Joe Biden described the statute as being big debate on the Senate floor he called this a statute criminalizing document shredding and there's nothing in the in your report that alleges that the president destroyed any any evidence so what I have to ask you and and what I I think people are working around nothing is airing it let me lay a little foundation for the ethical rules require the prosecutor have a reasonable probability of of conviction to bring a charge is that correct well generally accurate okay and the regulations concerning your your job as special counsel state that your job is to provide the Attorney General with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by your office you recommended declining prosecution of president trump and anyone associated with his campaign because there was insufficient evidence to convict for a charge of conspiracy with Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election is that fair fair was there a sufficient evidence to convict president trump or anyone else with obstruction of justice we did not make that calculation how could you not of me the calculator regulate will see opinion indicates that we cannot indict a sitting president one of the tools that a prosecutor would use is not there okay but let me just stop and made the decision on the Russian interference you knew you couldn't of indicted the president on that and you made the decision on that but when it came to obstruction you through a bunch of stuff up against the wall to see what would stick I would not agree to that characterization at all what we did is we provide to the Attorney General in the form of a confidential memorandum our understanding of the case and those cases that were brought those cases or declined and the that one case where the president cannot be charged with a crime okay but the could you charge the president with a prime after he left office yes you believe that he comes back states with obstruction of justice after he left office yes ethically under the ethical standards well I'm I'm I'm not certain to have a look at the ethical standards but we'll see if in the opinion says that the prosecutor why cannot bring a charge against a sitting president nonetheless a good did it continue the investigation to see if there are any other other person to from might be drawn into the conspiracy time of the gentleman has expired I mean from Rhode Island director directors you know we are a Pacific action episodes here today I'd like to ask you about the third episode it's the section of your report entitled the president's efforts to represent beginning at page ninety and by cartel you mean limit correct my colleagues of walk throughout the president tried to have you fire to the White House counsel and because Mister McGann refuse the order the president asked others to help limit your investigation is that correct and was Corey Lewandowski one such individual as I get a can you remind me what chart will currently does he's the president's former campaign manager correct do you have any official position the trump administration I don't believe so your report describes an incident in the oval office involving Mr windows on June nineteenth two thousand and seventeen volume two page ninety one is that correct I'm sorry what's a citation Sir page ninety one of the the second volume yes and when meeting in the oval office between these two and asking the president okay and that was just two days after the president called don began at home and ordered him to fire you is that correct early so so right after his White House counsel Mister again refused to follow the president's order to fire you the president came up with a new plan that was to go around all of the senior advisers and government aides have a private citizen try to limit your investigation what did the president tell Mr Lewandowski to do do you recall he told him he dictated a message to his wound owski for trade general sessions that asked him to write it down is that correct throw and your did you and your team see this hand written message of I mean I can get into what we may or may not have included in our investigate the message directed sessions to give in it and I'm quoting from your report to give a public speech saying that he planned to me with a special prosecutor to explain what special prosecutor move forward with investigating election meddling for future elections that's a page ninety one is that correct yes I see that thank you yes it is in other words Mr Lewandowski a private citizen was instructed by the president of the United States to deliver a message from the president to the Attorney General that directed him to limit your investigation correct correct at this time Mister solutions was still were cues from oversight of your investigation correct I'm sorry could you researcher journalists were cues from over yeah the Attorney General would have had to violate his own department's rules in order to comply with the president's order correct well I'm not gay get into the subsidiary details I just refer you again to page ninety one ninety two of the report and it gives the Attorney General had followed through with the president's press Mister Miller it would have effectively ended your investigation into the president and his campaign as you note on page ninety seven correct thank you you get John seven you right I quote taken together the president's directive indicate that session was being instructed to tell the special counsel to end the existing investigation into the president and his campaign with the special counsel being permitted to move forward with investigating election meddling for future elections is that correct very true yes Sir and it's on CSN what struck us this is still a crime is that correct that is correct and Mr Lewandowski I tried to meet with the Attorney General is that right and he tried to be with him in his office so he would be sure certain it wasn't a public log of the visit according to what we gather for the report and the meeting never happened and the president raise the issue again with Mr windows key and this time he said and I quote if sessions does not meet with you moon doubts you should tell sessions he was fired correct correct so immediately following the meeting with the president does he then asked Mr Dearborn to deliver the message who is the former chief of staff to Mr sessions a Mister Dearborn refuses deliver it because he doesn't feel comfortable is not correct federal correct yes so just so we're clear Mr mark two days after the White House counsel done again refused to carry out the president's order to fire you the president directed a private citizen to tell the Attorney General of the United States who was accused of the time to limit your investigation to future elections effectively ending your investigation into the two thousand sixteen trump campaign is that correct I'm not a doctor characterization of saying that the axe is laid out in the report are accurate well Mister all in your report you in fact right at page ninety nine ninety seven substantial evidence indicates that the president's ever trip sessions limit the scope of the special counsel's investigation to future elections interference was intended to prevent further investigative scrutiny of the president and his campaign conduct is that correct generally and so missed more you have seen a letter with thousand former Republican and democratic federal prosecutors have just read your report and said anyone but the president committed those acts would be charged with obstruction of justice do you agree with those former colleagues of thousand prosecutors came to that conclusion those prosecutions thank you chairman but over here thank Mister Mister Miller you guys your team wrote in the report he is the top of page to the dance only one also on page one seventy three restaurant as a form yes you've come to the conclusion that quote the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired to coordinate with the Russian government and its selection interference activities close quote that's accurate statement right that's accurate and I'm curious when did you personally come to that conclusion can you remind me which car record bring to top of page two on two volume one questions coming even make any sense okay exactly which programs are you looking at on the investigation did not establish of course I see yeah yeah what was your question my question now is when did you personally reach that conclusion well the way we were I on going for two years if you are going you wrote it is some point during that two year period but at some point you have to come to a conclusion that that I don't think there's a couple that there's not a conspiracy going on here there was no conspiracy between this president I'm not time but the rest of the president's team time of this president and the Russians I as you understand a looking a criminal case you get piece of information piece of information witnesses and the like and as you make your case right and when you make a decision on a particular case depends on a number of factors right I know I cannot say specifically that we reach a decision on a particular defendant at a particular point time but it was sometime well before you wrote the report the report dealing with a whole myriad of issues certainly is sometime part of that report is when you reach the decision that okay makes sound absolutely well that's what they do on farms all day long I'm not certain I do agree with that the way to the last man when you rush the right points out okay we'll know whether there are various aspects of the development of a a and and sure and that's my point there are various aspects that are going to happen but somewhere along the pike you will come to a conclusion there's not there's no there there for this defendant and that right so okay I catch but you can't you can't say when fair enough so so no I'm not no I'm I'm I'm asking the the sworn witnesses you're right this is not for sale that's why they're doing this absolute three days before speaking too fast other dollar sign on fox news is that he's looking to add she brought out and flustered and out and all that yes with a good time to break was Republican okay okay we will operate

"There was a piece written in the hill, the other day by professor. Alan Dershowitz, who have enormous respect for all always a leftist. So I don't agree with that stuff. But he tries to be consistent, when it comes to the constitution and usually is, but he wrote a piece it was, it was very fascinating piece in the hill. And he said, the basically, yes, the supreme court can intervene in an impeachment matter, if that impeachment is outside the constitution. Then I won't elaborate you can read it yourself. That's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. The supreme court is never going to intervene. An impeachment matter for the very reason this district judge just said. It is considered a political question about a constitutional matter. You've heard me say over and over again that there's specific language in the constitution. It's there for reason when it comes to impeachment. But the battle between the house and the president. United States is a political battle. A whether or not you can impeach president goes down to the space on the constitutional language, but the judges are not going to get involved because it is a political battle. Just not. While we're on the subject slung into the subject, we're gonna have to learn more and more about peach Manar wing. And it's something that on this program we are uniquely. Qualified to discuss. I mean beyond the surface level. In as I pointed out to you before one of the finest constitutional thinkers that I've read in modern times is a late professor by the name Rallo burger. And. Robert Bork also was friends with him and admired him, but the absolutely brilliant. To me. He wrote the definitive book on a peach McComb impeachment, the constitutional problems, and I can assure you, there's not a single person on TV who's talking to about this matter. Who's read the book, not one? Are looked at the original footnotes not one, except me when I appear on TV. And. Is a very, very brilliant, man. And he. He writes, part, keep it up here. It could be a second. Scholarly. Studies more apt to provoke fresh polemics than distill incessant debate on the matter of impeachment. Even so I would maintain that history furnishes a plane answer to at least one question that has long cluttered analysis. That is the test of an impeachable offence in England. And this is what it was based on is not an indictable common law crime. And when the framers withheld from congress the powered inflict criminal punishment. Which have been exercised by parliament under the course of parliament as distinguished from the general criminal law, when they limited congressional sanctions on a peach -ment to remove and disqualification left criminal punishment to subsequent indictment and conviction. They plainly separated impeachment from criminal process. Why am I reading this part because you've been hearing pablum? Oddly enough from people who criticize Muller on something happens to be right about, which is you cannot indicted sitting present that is the position of the department of Justice, not that they special counsel or any US attorney could indict a president and then take it up with the attorney general, and he can reverse course. That's not what those memos say, and that's not what history says. That's not what history says. They separate impeachment from indictment. I want you to think this through, and there's more to this. I wanna get into this another phase of this, but you're smart. So I want you to think along with me. And by the way, every book signing, I do people come up to me. And they say when you say people getting bored. No, we want you to dig deeply. So I'm going to do it. Would it make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, that the framers of the constitution. Would leave it to a single assistant United States attorney. With a lapdog grand jury the determine whether or not a president should be criminally indicted, and yet withhold that power from the United States house of representatives. There were no US attorneys that were no assistant US attorneys. There was no attorney general the was no department of Justice there, isn't any of that stuff in the constitution. So do you think that the framers of the constitution somehow would have authorized Robert Muller to indict a sitting president of the United States, while withholding that power from the house of representatives? Of course not. Of course not. And so you have to fit this like a jigsaw puzzle. The so we now have a department of Justice, we now have United States attorneys, we now have a system, United States attorneys, that unfortunately special counsel from time to time fine. But you still have to give. Support for and be faithful to the constitutional structure. These are an attack on the constitutional structures laid out in the constitution. So to say that one of these individuals with a lapdog grand jury, and bring an indictment against a presently United States to cripple him or a secret indictment that would leak out to cripple him. Or do get an indictment and imprison him to cripple the entire executive branch when the framers of the constitution denied such a power Frei president in office to the house of representatives is absurd. There's absolutely no history wet, so ever or logic whatsoever to support that position. But I've been hearing it Dan weeks on and on and on. It's a lie. It's damnable lie. Now, let's go on. And he says this does Rallo burger. Great Yale, professor. A decent regard for the design of the founders resolved to avoid the excesses, which forever stigmatize Johnson tries talking about president Andrew Johnson. They wanted to remove him from office for basically political reasons. He was a democrat from Tennessee been a Senator, and it was the vice president under Brahim Lincoln, obviously ascended to the presidency when he was assassinated, the Republicans for furious. About him. There were some issues with him. I mean he drank very heavily and he refused. He refused to allow congress to remove members of his own cabinet. You might say, well, of course they came back, then there was some debate. And he said, no, they can't it will destroy the president's destroy the executive branch and they build a president to have confidence very much like what congress is doing now demanding the right to, to speak to the president's White House counsel. Former White House counsel and have access to the individuals documents Johnson objected in his own case as our president objects in his own case. If there are indeed limits to the impeachment power. He says the Senate may know more act in excess of those limits when it acts judicially, then when it acts legislatively, what he's saying is the house, and the Senate on have planetary power. It's not simply a political question. Another Dan ally that out there day in and day up, these phony, legal analysts he saying there's language in the constitution. It's confining not expanding its confining. Every branch of government? He writes, is confined to the limits drawn in the constitution and the purpose of those limits was the fence in the much-feared legislative branch. It was not left to the unlimited discretion of that branch to disrupt the other branches through resort to the impeachment power. In other words, the house has the power of peach, not just a president, not just the vice president, not just senior presidential officials, but members of the judiciary, and he said, it's not simply a political question, although it could unfortunately devolve into that. But that would be in violation of the limits placed by the provision of the impeachment clause on that house, representatives and the United States Senate. Now tell me, ladies and gentlemen. How many of these nitwits legal analysts on cable, and on network news have explained this to you? Not one. I'll. Be right back. You know that we talk a lot on the show about the problems with our national debt and our deficit, and how it's going to be very big problem. And there will, obviously be skyrocketing tax rates, and it's going to crush the income that you're planning on retirement, and it's not good. So what do we do to prepare for it?

"That was a piece written in the hill, the other day by professor. Alan Dershowitz, who have enormous respect for all always a leftist. So I don't agree with that stuff. But he tries to be consistent, when it comes to the constitution and usually is, but he wrote a piece it was, it was very fascinating piece in the hill. And he said, the basically, yes, the supreme court can intervene in an impeachment matter, if that impeachment is outside the constitution. Then I won't elaborate you can read it yourselves. That's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. The supreme court is never going to intervene in impeachment. Matter for the very reason this district judge just said. It is considered a political question about a constitutional matter. You've heard me say over and over again that there is specific language in the constitution. It's there for reason when it comes to impeachment. But the battle between the house and the president. United States is a political battle. Whether or not you can impeach a president goes down to based on the constitutional language, but the judges are not going to get involved because it is a political battle. Not. Now, while we're on this subject slung into the subject, we're gonna have to learn more and more about peach Manar wing. And it's something that illness program. We are uniquely qualified to discuss. I mean beyond the surface level. And as I pointed out to you before one of the finest constitutional thinkers that I've read in modern times is a late professor by the name Raoul Berger. And. Robert Bork also was friends with him and admired him, but the absolutely brilliant. To me. He wrote the definitive book on a peach mccone impeachment, the constitutional problems, and I can assure you, there's not a single person on TV who's talking to about this matter. Who's read the book, not one? Are looked at the original footnotes not one, except me when I appear on TV. And. Is a very, very brilliant, man. And he. He writes in part. It up here it could be a second. Scholarly. Studies more apt to provoke fresh polemics than distill incessant debate on the matter of impeachment. Even so I would maintain that history furnishes a plane answer to at least one question that has long cluttered analysis. That is the test of an impeachable offence in England. And this is what it was based on. But it's not an indictable common law crime. And when the framers withheld from congress the powered inflict criminal punishment. Which had been exercised by parliament under the course of parliament as distinguished from the general criminal law, when they limited congressional sanctions on a peach -ment to remove and disqualification left criminal punishment to subsequent indictment and conviction. They plainly separated impeachment from criminal process, now, why am I reading this part because you've been hearing pablum? Oddly enough from people who criticize Muller on something happens to be right about, which is you cannot indicted, sitting president, that is the position, the department of Justice, not that they special counsel or any US attorney can indict a president and then take it up with the attorney general, and he can reverse course. That's not what those memos say, and that's not what history says. That's not what history says. They separate impeachment from indictment. I want you to think this through there's more to this. I want to get into this another phase of this, but you're smart. So I want you to think along with me. And by the way, every book signing, I do people come up to me. And they say when you say people getting bored. No, we want you to dig deeply. So I'm going to do it. Would it make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, that the framers of the constitution. Would leave it to a single assistant United States attorney. With a lapdog grand jury the determine whether or not president should be criminally indicted and yet. Withhold that power from the United States house of representatives. There were no US attorneys that are were no assistant US attorneys. There was no attorney general the was no department of Justice there, isn't any of that stuff in the constitution. So do you think that the framers of the constitution somehow would have authorized Robert Muller to indict a sitting president of the United States, while withholding that power from the house of representatives? Of course not. Of course not. And so you have to fit this like a jigsaw puzzle. So we now have a department of Justice, we now have the United States turns. We now have assistant United States attorneys now, unfortunately special counsel from time to time fine. But you still have to give. Support for and be faithful to the constitutional structure. These are an attack on the constitutional structures laid out in the constitution. So to say that one of these individuals with a lapdog grand jury, and bring an indictment against a presently United States to cripple him or a secret indictment that would leak out to cripple him. Or do get an indictment and imprison him to cripple the entire executive branch when the framers of the constitution denied such a power for president in office to the house of representatives is absurd. There's absolutely no history wet, so ever or logic whatsoever to support that position. But I've been hearing it, Dan wakes. On and on and on. It's a lie. It's damnable lie. Now, let's go on. And he says this does Raoul Berger. Great yell. Professor. A decent regard. For the design of the founders resolved to avoid the excesses, which forever stigmatize Johnson tries talking about president Andrew Johnson. They wanted to remove him from office for basically political reasons. He was a democrat from Tennessee been a Senator, and it was the vice president under ABRAHAM LINCOLN, obviously ascended to the presidency when he was assassinated, and the Republicans for furious. About him. Now the were some issues with him. I mean he drank very heavily and he refused refused to allow congress to remove members of his own cabinet. Now, you might say, well, of course they came back, then there was some debate. And he said, no, they can't it will destroy the president's destroy the executive branch and they build a president to have confidences very much like what congress is doing now demanding the right to, to speak to the president's White House counsel. Former White House counsel and have access to individuals documents Johnson objected in his own case as our president objects in his own case. If there are indeed limits to the impeachment power. He says the Senate may know more act in excess of those limits when it acts judicially, then when it acts legislatively, what he's saying is the house, and the Senate don't have planetary power. It's not simply a political question. Another Dan ally. That's out there day in and day up. These phony, legal analysts he saying there's language in the constitution. It's confining not expanding its confining. Every branch of government? He writes, is confined to the limits drawn in the constitution and the purpose of those limits was defense in the much feared legislative branch. It was not left to the unlimited discretion of that branch to disrupt the other branches through resort to the impeachment power. In other words, the house has the powered on peach, not just a president, not just vice president, not just senior presidential officials, but members of the judiciary, and he said, it's not simply a political question, although it could unfortunately devolve into that. But that would be in violation of the limits placed by the provisions of the impeachment clause on the house, representatives, and the United States Senate. Now tell me, ladies and gentlemen. How many of these network, legal analysts on cable, and on network news have explained this to you, not one? I'll be right back.

Now, the president yesterday granting now let me bring in John Richter. You know, John, I do like the innocence project and berry Sheck as actually convinced me unless there's a video of a murderer and somebody getting the death penalty, we've made so many stupid mistakes and some political and some overaggressive prosecutors, I'm not supporting the death penalty, unless we got a video, Sean. Yo I appreciate you posing the question to me, but Vicki is actually the the executive director and Oklahoma. In addition to being Michael's mother. She obviously join this cause after many years as a career federal prosecutor, I've had the honor of representing Michael through this pardon process and serving as as his lawyer in this pardon process, and as a. Former United States attorney and former head of the criminal division. I can tell you personally that the actions of the prosecution in this case violate all decent standards for fair prosecution of defended. And while obviously a pardon process was not here to relitigate the case it nonetheless is an important part of considering whether forgiveness an act of grace like the president is giving Michael inappropriate. I just don't like the fact honestly at all that we now are putting handcuffs on on people. We put in life and death situation. We're sending these guys out to fight wars. Their lives are at risk. We're second guessing what they do. And we're putting handcuffs on them and rules of engagement that are obscene that puts their lives in jeopardy.

So that we can save American lives with. That's not a moment. To be polite.

"Zero eight zero eight one zero follow me on Twitter. Send me your tweets. I what a day are coming up in about twelve minutes. We've got David Katz. Former assistant United States attorney. To talk about the constitutionality about this new national aid -mergency as declared by the president of the United States of America. Congressional correspondent for the New York Times nNcholas fan does is gonna join me as well. And a little under thirty minutes. What happens next? And I wanna take your calls too. Because this was a wild morning at the rose garden with the president declaring after five minutes of prefatory statements, which was really odd. If it's a national emergency went you immediately go in I don't know like presents beforehand. And say all right. Here's what's going on. Folks. We got a problem. We're being run on the cartels. The Zayd is moved into Texas, New Mexico. Arizona they have taken over territory in the southern United States of America. Oh my God. We have a foreign power who has invaded. We have a national emergency. I cannot wait for congress to act, although in that case, congress would actually act in a very rapid fashion as we saw after nine eleven, and if it was very bipartisan coming together to authorize use of military force to go after the terrorists. But here we have no such thing. The facts are very clear and simple. The facts are very clear and simple. Crossings on our southern border was over one point six million in the year, two thousand it's been steadily down had some little bumps up steadily down slightly up now about three hundred ninety thousand weight one point six million in the year, two thousand three hundred ninety thousand now you see what that trend line looks like right down dramatically. Okay. The drug enforcement agency itself. Customs border protection DA have shown it is seven in eight seven eighths of the illicit drugs coming into the United States. Come through the ports of entry seven eighths. Interdicted by the coast guard. I that aren't interdicted beforehand seven eighths, according to the DA and the Trump zone, DNC BP mind, you come through the ports of entry. And I mean, shall we continue the crime rate of people who are not native born as lower etcetera, no way diminishes angel moms, and what has happened to them that in no way diminishes what happened to the Stanley family that in no way changes how we feel about anybody who has been a victim of a crime in any way, shape or form. But the facts are the facts, and yet the president chose to ignore all the facts admitted as such in the speech today at the rose garden admitted as such. And is going tomorrow Lago this weekend while there's national emergency seeing if there's a national emergency would you go tomorrow Lago to go play golf? Go hang out with your pals, drink and cavort. No, typically, not if there's an actual emergency. And actual which is is not Trump himself admitted. I wanna play a little clip for you from this morning's, I don't know what you call. This thing that happened at the rose garden national emergency declaration moment, where President Trump himself. Yeah. President Trump himself said. Different ways. It's not that urgent. But he wanted to make listen to his actual words around this take a listen this from this morning at the rose garden. This is the president of the United States of America talking. I want to do it faster. I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn't need to do this. But I'd rather do it much faster. And I don't have to do it for the election. I've already done a lot of wall for the election twenty twenty. I couldn't I didn't need to do. It this way. I could well, then it's not a national emergency. Boy, are you in trouble. When you go to court get a fair, shake, they'll give you a fair shake. They'll give you a fair shake, and you're gonna lose you're going to lose like a loser. You're gonna lose like the sixteen Republicans who ran against you as a twenty sixteen Republican primary. That's the way you're gonna lose. You're gonna lose all the way through the supreme court. Because as we found there's gonna there are limits to what you're going to be able to do let's take this a step further, though, what are these facts, he uses I do we have time to listen to that that exchange with Jim Acosta and the other reporter followed up take take a listen to this. Because this was the most amazing thing this was after he was done. He was taking questions from reporters on unbelievable how he admits. I just make stuff up and throw it out there. He essentially admits that take a listen. Yes. Jim acosta. Thank you, Mr President. I wonder if you could comment on this disconnect that we seem to have in this country where you are presenting information about what's happening at the border calling it an invasion talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on and yet there's a lot of reporting out there. There's a lot of crime data out there. There's a lot of a department of homeland security data out there that shows border crossings at a near record low. But it still undocumented immigrants eight meetings. Lower levels shows undocumented criminals are undocumented immigrants committing crime at lower levels than native born Americans. What do you say, you don't you don't really believe? That's what you really believe it. Federal I believe I believe in facts and statistics. Let's go. Let me ask you this. What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating a national emergency the year concocting, national emergency here in order to get your wall? What do you think you think I'm creating something ask these incredible women who lost their daughters in this sons? Okay. Because your question is a very political question because you have an agenda your CNN your fake news. You have an agenda the numbers that you gave a wrong take a look at our federal prison population. See how many of them percentage wise? Are illegal aliens. Just see go ahead and see. It's a fake question. Yes. Go ahead. Thank you, Mr President just to follow up on that you unifying crime reporting statistics numbers from your own border patrol numbers from this government show that the amount of illegal immigrants are down. There is not violence on the border, and that is most islands and there's not as much violence. Six people finish the please let me finish a question weeks ago. Twenty six people were killed. I understand what you're mile away from where I went I under. I was there. I understand. That's not the question. The question is do we forget about that? No. I'm not forgetting that. I'm asking you to clarify where you get your numbers because most of the DA crimes reporting statistics that we see show that drugs are coming cross at the ports of entry that illegal immigration is down and the violence is down. So what do you base your legs come on? Let's go. Seconds. You get one you get one. Wait, sit down sit down could you? Please. You get one question. I get my numbers from a lot of sauce like homeland security. Corner right from homeland security are a disaster. And you know, what else is a disaster. The numbers that come out of homeland security Pearson for the cost that we spend and the money that we lose because of illegal immigration, billions and billions of dollars a month, billions and billions of dollars based on and it's unnecessary. So your own government stats are wrong. Or you know, I use many stats could. With us. Let me tell you you have far worse than the ones that I use. But I use many stats, but I also use any homeland security. Our next women many many many, we don't know what the stats are. Nobody's ever heard of them. But yeah, I mean, I use many our right? What is this going to look like constitutionally, how do we move forward legislatively?

Couple of other things happen on July twenty seven and I can't thank this source enough. This was brilliant. Joe don't you find it awfully convenient that?

You don't know the Dayton advance. But let me based on the conversation. We're having now the house GOP issues a urgent call via letter for a special counsel to investigate the FBI.

His team is corrupted popadopoulos gets hurried up arrested at the Dulles airport on on what we believe to be a PC arrests, very unusual and the house GOP issues this urgent letter calling for a special counsel into misdeeds by the FBI during their Trump and Clinton investigation.

"I'm getting these details from agent Roland and I am typing up a complaint. And of course, by now, I've realized that this is going to become highly public. And the first thing that any good prosecutor agent detective does when they figure out that. They've got a case that is going to be highly public is they kick it right up the chain of command because you have to immediately alert the presidentially appointed United States Turney if you are about to have a case that's going to break in the news. And so I had to not only sit in my office on a Saturday and type up a complaint in wait for the ages to arrive and process, the whole case, I had to call my boss, United States attorney Dave Nahmias, and I called the first assistant United States attorney who at the time was a woman named Sally Yates who everyone may remember was at one point here. The acting attorney general of the United States of the time. I had no idea she would get too lofty position. But I had to alert both of them that I had a case that was going to break in the news, very soon. Okay. What a big when you told them. Well, they more than I they knew TI was immediately. I didn't even need to tell them. And so my boss, the US attorney came into the office to quote, help me what that meant really though was he stood over my shoulder as I was typing up able work which anyone knows when your boss stands over your shoulder when you're typing paperwork things are different than normal. Usually little more scrutiny little more stress. Tried a lot more stress for sure. So here's the full story by now, I have from the agent. So they've got the bodyguard is wired up and ready to record this transaction between him and TI where is delivering the guns on that day. So the bodyguard arrives the agents are already in the parking lot of that Publix grocery store here in midtown Atlanta. And they are survey ailing it TI arrives in a car. He's driving. The bodyguard gets into the car and delivers the machine guns in silence to TI at which point the ATF swoops in and without incident. Arrests TI humanity comes alone. He doesn't come with the whole crew. So there's not any question that he is actually the person that is purchasing and possessing these illegal firearms. That's right. He is all by himself and not only that. But the first thing the agents do after they. Pat, him down to make sure that he doesn't have any weapons is search his car to make sure that there are no weapons within his reach that he could break away in get and they find in fact, there is a weapon there are multiple weapons in that car, including a loaded handgun tuck right in between the driver seat where he was sitting and the center console ready for him to grab us in a second Mets was driving stops or the most dangerous for law enforcement because it's very easy to secrete a weapon that is very acceptable and quickly acceptable that can be used to shoot anybody neck to be somebody in the public or somebody like police officers just stopped you, and you wanna make sure that you don't get arrested. So, unfortunately, this is what happens many times officers get shot wounded or killed because there are. Felons running around this country driving cars with weapons in them and those weapons early in their you know, they'll go to jail if they get caught with them. That's right. And that's why that desperate situation sometimes arises in. Why police officers have Drennan pumping in are so anxious themselves when they conduct the traffic stop because they're so aware of cases where just like the one that just happened in California happen all the time..

"Usa's assistant united states attorneys in the united states down themselves lawn crime covers a new breach of protocol in this case constitutional due process what happened well joe i don't know if you remember this but a while ago was it about two months ago and losing track of time in this case three months ago maybe the muller team indicted these russian companies on a multiple count indictment of attempting to use social media and other things to influence the american election member yeah right about two three months remember the media lost their minds show oh this is it muller's close it and i always laugh joe and i think it's funny because the media every every ten minutes this is joe close it in there if you google muller's closing in do it but it's a joke but it's real google muller's closing in muller is closing and you will see probably five six hundred articles written by people who every single time muller does something they say he's closing in but mysteriously trump is never any information that comes out of it so he indicts these russians and for the use of facebook apparently and the use of to influence the election you know which was ironic because if you read count fifty three as i've said repeatedly and muller's indictment of these russian companies count fifty three is clear as day that these russian companies show were not only buying ads and trying to organize rallies for trump they were also organizing rallies against trump at for hillary which proves the point we've been making from episode six twenty eight number six twenty eight on when we started covering the russia probe that the russians goal was to sow chaos not to have trump win and they won the russians won that fight because the democrats have fed right into this narrative by furthering the chaos in an effort to damage trump which is the greatest irony of all.

"Me like showing for listeners okay what we don't join i are just fine believe me were fine more than fight this is frightening stuff there is never ever supposed to be an information superhighway from a political campaign to law enforcement without intermediaries who were supposed to vet the information first judges fbi agents assistant united state's attorneys joe district attorneys who are supposed to say what is the most what is the motivation for this information ladies and gentleman me be clear on one thing it's not that the information is invalid and i'm not even suggesting to you that because hillary clinton's campaign found the information that it should never be used i'm not so i know that sounds weird are here too if hillary clinton's campaign had uncovered information that someone on the trump team had murdered some wanted was legitimate folks that in for that that information is tragic and horrible and should absolutely find its way to law enforcement but it should be done so with an understanding about how it was found so that the fbi when determining the rigor and authenticity of it understands that there is an actual power motive for someone to produce that information the power motive is that person obtains power by getting elected while destroying their opponent it doesn't mean information's false the problem with this case and the information superhighway is there was almost nothing done to verify the authenticity of formation knowing the motive was to destroy the political opponent how do i know that because bill price step himself the number two at the fbi when asked about the dossier in the verification process said it was 0 in its infancy the authentication for joe do you see what i'm saying that akayesu encountering tilt the fbi has acknowledged on the record that the verification of the information superhighway from the clintons to the fbi was in its infancy folks you don't need to have a command of the of the of the english language.

"Now can you currently are a defense attorney you at one other point your career were in assistant united states attorney i'm wondering your read on what was made public about the pop and dopoulos guilty plea in the plea agreement in the fact that he's cooperating was there anything in the documents that were made public this week on his case that indicate to you any other criminal activity outside of lying to the fbi will there was lying to the fbi and the results are deleting his facebook account in what might have been in a very clumsy effort to conceal its contents from the fbi but no it wasn't anything in there that i think yet cross the line into any other crimes but bear in mind that what were seen both in the complaint and in a statement of fact supporting the plea was what the special council warned to put in there and they didn't necessarily put gratuitous things in there so it's possible they have more but this move by the special counsel's office to go out and roused people and then wind up charging them not with a substantive crime but with lying during a rousting is classic for a federal grand jury investigation and actually a misspoke it was the fbi that did the initial rousting before the special council was even appointed but disarray demonstrates as does the manafort indictment just how broad and flexible federal criminal law is and how often prosecutors can.
