"Really, everything around me about me today has gotten me so goddamn pissed off. Wow, I don't even know what a start. You know what? Oh, this AG bar resigning, oh, go fuck yourself, AG Barr, as if you did so many great things for us. So many things are happening, the Yankees X pitching ace CC Sabathia saying, oh, I was too drunk when I pitched. I really shouldn't have been drunk. We fucking knew you were out of shape and drunk in a fat bastard. We knew it. But we stuck by you because you were CC, you were the man. You won a World Series in 2009, but we knew you were too fat of a fuck to get us any further beyond that. AG Barr, you know, different. You're a fat fuck. You acted like you were gonna be the big old boss hog, and you did who gots. All right, I'm sick. I'm sorry, I'm gonna open this show with me being absolutely pissed off with people acting like they're the shit and for how many goddamn months and years did we hear? Oh, Trump's got AG bar. This guy is so good. You have no idea. Oh, really? He's that good? Bullshit. Bullshit, but this guy did was a disgrace. He was a disgrace. The fact that attorney general Barr knew about Hunter Biden investigation and didn't bring it up during a very crucial time in this country's history. I mean, when the mainstream media was going, there's nothing to it. Don't believe the Hunter Biden laptop story don't believe the stories that he's getting money from China all fat AG fucking bar had to do is go, oh no, by the way, there's been an investigation for months about this fucking kick, okay? He's under investigation. And it doesn't look good. That's all he'd have to do. And you know something? There was a poll conducted post election results. And believe it or not, almost almost 50% of people who voted for Biden didn't know about his son's crooked behavior. So you think if AG Barr would have opened his fat fucking mouth, maybe things would have been different?

Why does Trump like this guy so much? I mean, you know, and I and a lot of other people like, way too well. These two, these two guys got things cooking. And I sat there with friends of mine who I'm not going to mention who told me you have no idea Barr and Trump, they're playing chess, they got it all figured out. They got nothing figured out.

"Starts here to Mark cleven show. Colin at 877-381-3811. I think the question I've asked is actually quite important. Has any former living president? Has any former living vice president? Violated the espionage act? Violated the section two O 7 one, removed information. Section 1519 obstructed. You see, we can't really know, can we America unless their homes are actually searched? Like Donald Trump's home was searched. Unless they actually get a subpoena or volunteer through their lawyers. To make their offices, maybe even their wives closets, but certainly their offices available for review. Otherwise, how do we know? But the national archives said today is of no moment. Has nothing to do with that. They say the documents they secured in the they acquired and they were provided to them that Obama played by the book. Okay, did Obama take anything home? They have no idea. How about Joe Biden? Joe Biden's a crook, we know that. He's corrupt. Did he take any home? We have no idea. Push 43, Dick Cheney. We have no idea. We don't have any idea if they violated the espionage act. So why is again Trump under investigation for these three federal statutes? First of all, they're a pretext, as I said. But secondly, they wouldn't be used as a pretext with another president, vice president or former president or vice president. How about attorney general Barr? Did he take anything home? I'm just curious. Or any of the other attorneys general. How about any secretaries of defense? How about Eric holder? Did he? And by the way, this doesn't just relate to when you're a former official. When you're a current official, if you mishandle, classified information. Now, clearly, the espionage act was not intended for former presidents. It was intended for spies. It was passed in 1917. June of 1917, and the reason was dealing with spies during World War I. Espionage. There's nothing to do with what's going on today. Nothing. That's why when you look at it, whoever section one for the purpose of attaining information, respecting national defense and it goes on

"To the weekend NewsHour on news radio 600, kogo. I'm Ted Garcia, three days after the president of Mexico met with President Biden, the U.S. drug enforcement administration's most wanted target was in Mexican custody. Rafael Caro Quintero was wanted for the torture and murder of DEA agent Enrique Kiki camarena in 1985, a case that many people in San Diego remember joining us on the coco news live line is Robert mazer, the undercover agent who infiltrated Pablo Escobar's Medellín drug cartel, author of The New York Times Best Seller, the infiltrator, and now a new book, the betrayal. Good morning. Good morning. Thanks for the invitation. So how was Quintero actually captured? Well, you know, that's a pretty interesting thing. If you think back to recent history, we see that and this is anything that's been reported. It's just my gut. We see that unfortunately after DEA did a lot of hard work that led to the arrest and incarceration, at least being held in anticipation of trial of general Salvador San Fuego's former defense minister of Mexico. Attorney general Barr meeting with the Mexican officials agreed to their request to let sin fuegos go and return for their genuine efforts to locate and arrest a major drug trafficker. I don't know for a fact that it was that it was Quintero, but capital, but I suspect that there is a connection there. I don't believe that it's the media really picked up on this issue of a hound dog that supposedly had followed on ascent into a bush where he was located. We have a number of other potential sources of information about this. El Chapo Guzman is sitting in prison for the rest of his life. Most of these guys who are sitting in prison for the rest of their life find ways to try to get favor with the government. So it could be any number of those things. So how do people like him like Pablo Escobar? How do they remain in hiding for so long? Are they hiding in plain sight sometimes? Oh yeah, absolutely. It's very interesting that his history is, of course, that shortly after keke was missing, he was tracked to a private entering his private jet of falcon that was located at the Guadalajara airport DEA was there unfortunately they only had revolvers and the Mexican military was there heavily armed. Motioned for the head of the military unit to come over to him, whispered $270,000 bride and his ear and then he took a swig out of his bottle of champagne and said to the DEA agents next time bring bigger guns. So he flew to Costa Rica. I personally know one of the officers in Costa Rica who was involved in tracking him down there. You have to imagine how hated this guy was by law enforcement and I can just say that after the Costa Ricans discovered that they were not supposed to kill him. They gave him over to the Mexicans. The Mexicans allegedly prosecuted him and put him into a prison that previously had been set up for 250 inmates. It was completely renovated into a palace. He had chefs. He had chef's kitchens. He had dining rooms. He had all types of things he had weapons he could be visited any time that he wanted. He ran his drug cartel from that prison. And then lo and behold, in 2013, after the previous president was only in Enrique Pena, was only in office for 8 months. A technicality was discovered in the case that resulted without the U.S. authorities being notified that he was that kind of Quintero was released. And he was released and went completely missing. This is the same Enrique Pena who's now the subject of a criminal investigation by the current administration in Mexico. And the same Enrique Pena, who witnesses in the El Chapo Guzman trial, have alleged paid him a $100 million so that El Chapo could hide in plain sight. So yes, you're absolutely right. One of the reasons, unfortunately, then Enrique Kiki camarena was kidnapped, was because the Guadalajara cartel at the time later became the Sinaloa and the Tijuana cartels. That they were trying to find out just how much did DEA know about the corruption within the Mexican police? The military government officials sad time in the Americas for sure. Boy, Robert mazer. At least we've got him in hand. Thank you. Yeah, Robert mazer, thank you so much. Bestselling author, the infiltrator, new book, the betrayal. And Robert, thank you for joining us. It's my pleasure. Thank you. Ted Garcia, coco news. News

"From an FBI headquarters team were in communication with the FBI agents responsible for the Hunter Biden information targeted by mister autumn's assessment. Oh, they were. FBI headquarters? And they're findings on whether the claims were true, the Hunter Biden laptop claims, or disinformation, they were placed in a restricted access sub file in September of 2020, according to senator, so the sky autumn and the team are involved in the assessment of the Hunter Biden information was that assessment was that assessment that it was Russian disinformation, even though we knew it was legitimate. And if so, why was it replaced in a restricted access sub file? Is that so no one could see it before the election and no one could see the decision making process by which you and your people may have categorized it falsely as Russian disinformation? The peace believe it or not gets even worse, the dunleavy piece. We jumping back and forth there from the post piece of practice, the dunleavy piece. So not only was autumn, clearly involved in both of these cases. In a very suspicious fashion, Trump collusion looks real. Hunter laptop even though it's real. Looks like Russian disinfo. Really? Auden worked with this guy. Timothy thibault, who is an asac and assistant special agent in charge in the Washington office. So Don levy notes in the piece at tee ball who investigated corruption in the nation's capital may have violated the Hatch Act over his social media posts criticizing then president Trump and then attorney general Barr in 2020, according to Horowitz the inspector general last month. Folks, listen to me. Having a deep body of experience as a federal agent makes this issue very personal to me. When I realized under the Obama administration that I would have a difficult time separating my politics for my job, I knew it was time to resign so I'm not going to speak with fork tongue. I did this. I've been there. Don't you dare, as an FBI agent, met a guy this weekend, super nice guy, said Dan, you're spot on the agency's been corrupted. I'm not going to say where or who he was, but I'm telling you what happened. He said the agency has been hijacked by political buffoons who are weaponizing their power to take people's lives and freedom away to destroy this country. Listen to me, don't take part in this. It is time for mass resignations and mass whistleblowers we can not continue as a country with a weaponized force of people out there being used to take people's lives and freedom away. Because you don't believe in their political ideology. This is so deeply disturbing. I had Donald Trump on the radio show yesterday. Mission number one mission number one if he gets in in 2024 wins that election swears in in 2025 mission number one, has to be a thorough and complete disinfecting of this fetid putre, D.C. swamp, and I would argue the two most important places to start have to be the Department of Justice in the FBI.

"To say, stop. One point that vice chair Liz Cheney was making early on in the hearing was that December 14th, 2020. The day that the Electoral College convened in the 50 state capitals across the country and cast their ballots and certified the final electoral counts from each state and then shipped those off to the Library of Congress and the Congress itself, that should have been the end of this process. That is clearly not where Donald Trump believed the process should end, and it is from there in the lead up to the weeks ahead to that January 6th moment of the sort of pro forma congressional action of finalizing the Electoral College count that Donald Trump and his allies saw as the new target as the new date to circle on the calendar for when they think they could complete their attempted coup. And Liz Cheney, once again with Donald Trump square in her sights, says there is no excuse for the former president's behavior. President Trump is a 76 year old man. He is not an impressionable child. Just like everyone else in our country, he is responsible for his own actions and his own choices. No rational or sane man in his position could disregard that information and reach the opposite conclusion. Now remember, you got to put yourself back into December 2020. The attorney general Bill Barr had already made his comments to The Associated Press that there was no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. Today we heard depositions from Trump's labor secretary Eugene Scalia from Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and again, White House counsel, pat cipollone, saying that they believed this had sort of reached its natural conclusion. And even Mark Meadows was under the impression apparently in the way that he had a conversation with attorney general Barr that Trump was coming around to the idea becoming more realistic about losing the election. But as the committee pointed out today, that, in fact, was not the case. Donald Trump was not becoming more realistic about losing the election. And that became pretty obvious from the meetings that were taking place inside The White House in that critical month of December 2020. Listen to former attorney general Barr, discuss when Donald Trump asked him about the ability and power for him to seize the voting machines. My recollection is the president said something like, well, we could get to the some people say we could get to the bottom of this if the department sees the machines. And I said, absolutely not. There's no probable cause. And I'm not going to seize any machines. And that was that. Pat cipollone. Donald Trump's White House counsel said in his deposition that he was concerned that this idea was being discussed. When other people kept suggesting that

"Identify certain of the members of Congress who contacted The White House after January 6th to seek presidential pardons for their conduct. Thank you, mister chairman. I yield back. Without objection, the chair recognized the gentleman from Illinois, mister kings and opening statement. Thank you. Thank you, mister chairman and thank you to our witnesses for being here. I'd like to start with a personal story. So in May of 2009, I returned from service in Iraq and I announced my intention to run for Congress. A big reason I decided to run for Congress was my motivation to ensure freedom and democracy were defended overseas. I remember making a commitment out loud a few times and in my heart repeatedly, even to today that if we are going to ask Americans to be willing to die in service to our country, we as leaders must at least be willing to sacrifice our political careers when integrity and our oath requires it. After all, losing a job is nothing compared to losing your life. Within the halls of power in the face of a president that commitment can easily be forgotten. Presidential pressure can be really hard to resist. Today we'll focus on a few officials who stood firm against president Trump's political pressure campaign. When the president tried to misuse the department and install a loyalist at its helm, these brave officials refused and threatened to resign. They were willing to sacrifice their careers for the good of our country. The Department of Justice is unique in the executive branch. The president oversees the Department of Justice, yet the president's personal or partisan interests must not shape or dictate the department's actions. The president can not and must not use the department to serve his own personal interest. And he must not use its people to do his political bidding, especially when what he wants them to do is to subvert democracy. The president can not pervert justice nor the law to maintain his power. Justice must, both in fact and law be blind. That is critical to our whole system of self governance. During this hearing, you'll hear time and time again about the president's request to investigate claims of widespread fraud. Our witnesses, mister Rosen, mister donohue, and mister engel stood firm in the face of overbearing political pressure because they understood that their oath was to the constitution and not to the personal or political interests of the president. The president and his allies became keenly aware that with legal challenges exhausted and electoral votes certified, their only hope would be a last ditch scheme to prevent Congress from certifying the win. Thus throwing the entire system into constitutional chaos. The president wanted the department to sow doubt in the legitimacy of the election to empower his followers and members of Congress to take action. If the department could just lend its credibility to the conspiracies, people would have the justification they needed to spread the big lie. So president Trump ultimately wanted the Department of Justice to save the election was quote corrupt and quote, leave the rest to me and the Republican congressman, as you will hear today, the department's top leadership refused. Not surprisingly, president Trump didn't take no for an answer. He didn't accept it from attorney general Barr, and he wouldn't accept it from mister Rosen either. So he looked for another attorney general. His third in two weeks. He needed to find someone who was willing to ignore the facts. That is not the norm. Let's look at what attorneys general, Democrats and Republicans alike have said about upholding their oath to the constitution. Attorney general

I couldn't have disagreed more given the fact that my state was involved in so many lawsuits related to them trying to use mail in ballots like they did in other states and you'll notice in 2000 mules Texas wasn't in the show because we were able to we were able to win 12 lawsuits to stop it from happening here in

"The first prime time hearing of the House select committees investigation into the January 6th attack at the capitol That's on par with the audience for a Sunday Night football game or maybe the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade The hearing was filled with video clips of former Trump administration people saying they did not believe the election was stolen I saw absolutely zero basis for the allegations It was doing great grave disservice to the country I believe the words he used were so there's no there there It affected my perspective I respect attorney general Barr I accepted what he was saying Former attorney general Bill Barr Trump campaign lawyer Alex cannon and the former president's daughter Ivanka Trump all giving testimony to the January 6th House committee joining us live now CBS News congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane And Scott talk about some of the revelations from last night including having former members of the Trump team tell the story rather than Democrats whose opinions clearly would not resonate as much with people on the right It's quite clear where this committee is headed They're going to argue that Donald Trump the former president engaged in a conspiracy to block the official proceeding of the counting of the votes and to defraud the United States They've said that in their quarter filings in so many words as part of their investigation trying to get witnesses and email evidence And they're saying it now as the hearings begin There are a few things that jumped out at me in particular First of all when they showed those clips that you played of Bill Barr the former attorney general of the former Trump campaign lawyer quoting Mark Meadows the chief of staff saying there's no there there These are not true allegations of voter fraud They're bogus They're baseless But also the chairman of the committee in the final minutes had a revelation that really struck me He said that the committee's investigation is shown the far right Proud Boys group This is a group charged with conspiracy and being ready for battle January 6th Was doing reconnaissance work on the west front of the capitol looking for weaknesses vulnerable points and led the mob threw a vulnerable point there on the west front January 6th It's worth remembering this is the group about whom Trump said stand back and stand by earlier in 2020 Yeah Scott to your point you walked us right up to it Proud Boys and oath keepers I guess we could also say we're really the captains on the ground and maybe without them there may have never been a capitol breach It's noteworthy that their names were invoked nearly a dozen times last night in his first prime time hearing There's a reason for the committee is focused on them Two different far right groups Both of whom face seditious conspiracy charges of plotting and planning But the oath keepers in the Proud Boys they're like the hatfields and the mccoys Scholars and experts on this say they don't work together their rivals But they did meet together January 5th 2021 The leaders of both groups according to the testimony last night according to videos shown last night It's foreshadowing where this committee is going It really felt like last night they were reading a table of contents not reading the book There are 6 more hearings to go Each of which will dip into a different area of their actual investigation Yeah and you mentioned we have more hearings ahead next week's starts Monday morning What can we expect then They're going to dig into the voter fraud issue They're going to argue that their investigation found that team Trump knew those voter fraud claims were baseless and that they were a first step a spark to everything else that led to January 6th I'll note one other thing just a footnote for you This is not easy These hearings on the congressional staff and police who lived through that day barricaded behind doors or fighting the mob This is somewhat traumatic And there is a new group of congressional staff from the custodians to the political staff to the police officers that are now meeting monthly to talk things out to talk about their experience and talk through the trauma Happens to be led by spokeswoman for local congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton That is a hugely important point Scott I think we forget what everybody went

"At first hearing, January 6th panel uses Trump's allies to lay out case against him. By Erik cordele. The House select committee, investigating the January 6th attack on the U.S. capitol, began making its case for Donald Trump's culpability for the deadly riot. Thursday night, using testimony from members of his own administration to argue that the former president was behind a coordinated conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and block the transfer of power to Joe Biden. Within minutes of the start of the prime time hearing, which all but one of the major broadcast networks aired live, representative Benny Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi, and the committee's chairman aired the first footage from a former Trump White House official explaining under oath that they had informed the president that his claims of widespread voter fraud were false. I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the president was bullshit. Former attorney general William Barr told committee investigators and taped testimony, referring to a December 2020 meeting with Trump. And I didn't want to be a part of it. The committee later showed footage from a deposition with the president's own daughter and special adviser, Ivanka Trump, who was present for that meeting and told the committee she took Barr's comments seriously. It affected my perspective, she said, I respect attorney general Barr, so I accepted what he was saying. The revelations were among the most explosive and significant of the evening, legal experts and former prosecutors have said that any evidence that Trump was informed that he was spreading a lie to prevent Congress from certifying Biden's election victory could implicate him on charges of intent to defraud. It's really important if you can prove he knew he lost. That helps bolster claims of corrupt intent and fraudulent intent. Barbara mcquade, a former U.S. attorney, and now a law professor at the University of Michigan, told time in April. Other testimony from former administration officials demonstrated how Trump and his closest confidants were actively looking for ways to subvert the election outcome. Alex cannon, Trump's top campaign lawyer, recalled a December 2020 conversation with the president's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, who asked what they had dug up to challenge the election results of decisive swing states..

"You want to hear a little Montage that Derek my producer put together that's not hard to find. I give you Adam Schiff, I give you Valerie plame, the former CIA officer, and I give you the former director of national intelligence, James clapper. Let's take a stroll again. Down another memory lane. So that it was all essentially a deep state conspiracy. There was spying on the Trump campaign all of that was debunked by the inspector general. But I think attorney general Barr's rather casual assessment that the FBI spied on candidate Trump is a little too loose with the facts. Well, I think he's deliberately spinning the narrative that we're by he's a victim of the deep state spying on him or spying on the campaign, which is not the case. It's not the case. But what are you going to say today, clapper? What are you going to say today, Leslie stahl? What are you going to say now?
