Judge Orders Release of DOJ Memo Justifying Not Prosecuting Trump

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

From washington to fill in the details mourning rachel. Hey good morning Yes they outgoing attorney. General william far has said that he doesn't see a reason or need to appoint a special counsel to look into hundred by then who's under investigation by the irs criminal division with his international business dealings now a lot of time. Supporters have been pretty upset with william bar not because that was kept under wraps during the election now was on the other foot when james comey spoke publicly about the election Excuse me the investigation. The hillary clinton's email during the election. There's a lot of push back on that so We embar for whatever. Reason was keeping quiet on that and He's on his way out. In fact i believe at this point. Probably packing up his office. He said yesterday. If i thought a special counsel was the right tool and it was appropriate. I would name one. But i haven't and i'm not going to. So what does he think. The appropriate tool is in this particular case. In case he believes that this would be The investigations that are already ongoing the Look see by the irs criminal division and prosecutors looking into it and when it comes to twenty twenty election. He said something similar that they're the he doesn't see Widespread fraud in the way that the president has viewed this so Looking at moving forward there is a deputy attorney general who will be stepping up into this job. That is going to be acting attorney. General jeff rosen. Now he's kept pretty low profile at the justice department. He's not a career guy at justice so it could be that he might do something But when he's been asked about it before his been pretty opaque and the clock is really ticking or less than thirty days away from inauguration day. What is a special counsel and what is what is the significance of of naming one in an investigation like this. Oh there's lots of -nificant because the special counsel is an outside prosecutor that can look into Allegations like we saw with robert muller they have subpoena power. They have a power to be able to empanel a grand jury They can have people arrested. So yeah it's it's a big deal and they're difficult to get rid of There lots of times when president trump was either reportedly threatening to get rid of forever. Muller in this case if a special council were appointed Before president-elect biden were to be inaugurated you would assume that by them within. Go on with that investigation. I mean technically collegiate says president trump threaten to fire. Robert muller a president biden could do the same but that's really frowned upon all right. Thanks rachel for the update. We appreciate it. Rachel sutherland reporting from washington..

Attorney General William Barr resigns

"Attorney. General bill barr is formally resigned. He leaves office next week. A move that shows. How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he. He came to this job because he was going to burnish his reputation and his re what could be his retirement years.

"And should have acted sooner and acted faster to cut the stops. I wish we had. I'm sorry that we didn't. He may be sorry now but years ago. Bloomberg was one hundred percent behind. Stop and Frisk. Listen to what he said about. Targeting minority populations reportedly during a two thousand fifteen speech at the Aspen Institute. Worried Wild Bloomberg has issued numerous apologies for stop and Frisk. He's also mid key facts. He's quick to point out. He eventually had a ninety. Five percent reduction in the use of stop and frisk but fails to mention the six hundred five percent spike before that during his first ten years in office with campaign. Twenty twenty in full swing Bloomberg now has to answer for more than just stop and Frisk. The Washington Post reports Bloomberg made sexist comments to women at his company. In fact the paper says an aide once presented him with a booklet of sexist comments. She attributed to him among them quote. A good salesperson is like a man who tries to pick up women at a bar by saying. Do you want to F- he gets turned down a lot but he gets to. The Post reports Bloomberg also allegedly said that his company's computers will do everything including give you oral sex. I guess that puts a lot of girls out of business. The campaign denies he ever said any of that. That same article lays out how one of Bloomberg saleswomen sued him and his company alleging workplace discrimination. She said when she learned she was pregnant. Bloomberg allegedly told her to quote. Kill it Bloomberg's campaign tells CNN. He denied the claim under oath and reached a confidential settlement with the woman also according to the lawsuit unearthed by the Post. Back in Nineteen ninety-three Bloomberg screamed at one of his sales women who was having trouble finding a nanny shouting. It doesn't know the difference between you and anyone else. All you need is some black who doesn't even have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building. A spokesman for Bloomberg has denied that the presidential candidate ever made any of the statements alleged in the suit Bloomberg who has yet to take the debate stage campaign. Twenty Twenty Ish. Sure to have a target on his back when he does Randy K. C. N. N. New York. Say of course I'm presuming Michael Bloomberg's position the polls continues to rise. You'll hear more and more of this. As the twenty twenty political season moves ahead. Let's talk about it now with former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Cnn senior political commentator. She's not endorsed a twenty twenty candidate but has helped vice president Biden with debate. Preparations Governor Granholm. I mean looking at the volume and the nature of the controversy surrounding Bloomberg. What kind of impact do you think this could have on his candidacy Especially because he's running against a president who You know who's transgressions and comments or well known and didn't stop him from becoming elected. Yeah I hate to see have our own version of trump on the democratic side. He's got a he's got to answer it he's you know there's A. He has one more day to qualify for the debate on Wednesday. So we'll see. Apparently there may be some national polls coming out tomorrow. He needs one more poll if he is on that debate stage he's GonNa have to answer for it and it's not just sort of a wooden apology. You need a fulsome in fact. It's not just on the debate stage. You have to go and meet people. You can't just sore over the top of all of these candidates that have been working for almost a year now to try to get this nomination. So He's got to answer it on the debate stage he's got to answer it over and over again if he has to to real people but then. I think what the campaign is probably going to do what they have been doing is to put out ads that combat each of these allegations that were certainly the stop and Frisk. He's got a series of ads that he's been putting out which has validates from the African American community and on the on the charges that women have brought. He's doing the same thing he's got all of these high profile. Women Surrogates People who are co-chairing campaign like Gina Raimondo. Who's the governor of Rhode Island? Bev Perdue the former governor of North Carolina. So he's got he will have to continue to do that to take down the temperature but you better believe that he's going to have to answer for it is it. I mean there are some who view that would say he's being held to a different standard than than president trump certainly held to And that Democrats are looking for sort of purity tests for for their candidates. Obviously the flip side of that is voters were in many cases want somebody who represents their values. And represents you know common decency. Yeah it's interesting that you say this Anderson because there is a I mean you can feel the the anxiety out there among Democrats. They want to take trump out so badly that they're willing to sort of plug their ears and closed their eyes to somebody's transgressions perhaps in order to be able to achieve the ultimate victory because people feel physically insecure insecure as well as an inequality and all of that so the bottom line is there is a sense of gee do we forgive more or do we demand that everybody be pure. Well the whichever way you go on it. Everybody's got to be vetted and he has not been vetted yet by either the people or by the other campaigns. That's just starting to come out now. So he has got to answer for it and that'll make him a better candidate down the road when it comes to a general election if he gets there. Bloomberg's not on the ballot until Super Tuesday. Two weeks from tomorrow. How likely do you think this is going to be a prolonged primary whether it's Blooberg and sanders or or someone else taking this all the way to a broker to convince I I hate to say it? I just I fear for the Democrats that it will be a brokered convention and that's difficult to unite wind. Just explain what the what how that works. A lot of people don't right so you have to get one thousand nine hundred and ninety one delegates in order to be the nominee. If you go into a convention with nobody having that amount but a couple of people having cl- you know some amount less than that then there is going to be votes at the convention about which way we go. And so somebody go. In with a plurality more delegates than others you have a first vote which does not include super delegates but the second vote include super delegates and that means more establishment. Democrats have to vote. So it's just it's very divisive but I worry that because of the amount of money that Bloomberg is spending four hundred million now it it may very well be a brokered convention governor. Granholm appreciate it. Thanks very much of Nevada Democrats are lining up to vote early in next Saturday's caucus there is concerned tonight about a replay of the Iowa. Voting debacle straight ahead. I'll talk Democratic National Committee Chair. Tom Perez about his views. What lies ahead ever been locked down. You know suffered a setback. Fired left out it happens. It happens a Mike. Bloomberg middle class kid worked his way through college. Got A job started. Family boom fired at thirty nine. What did Mike do a lot of us? Do we got backup dove back in. He had an idea design a new computer able to crunch data and process information in a unique way he built it. He sold it. He built more. He sold more. He built a team. You built a company created twenty thousand jobs. Bloomberg is.

"Fortunately his inner circle did not permit this administrative pogrom to happen but they did force out a few Jewish Americans from the Bureau of Labor stood from the positions. They had a bureau Labor statistic now Nixon's people use. They've weaponized his hatred and took advantage of the fact that he was a conspiracy and my fear is that the people around president trump will play on these issues that they know he hates to trigger him. As a result he will use government against the American people the way that Richard Nixon did in nineteen seventy one and seventy two Michael. What's interesting that that whole idea? Is that with President trump. I mean Tim was saying you know. Nixon had people around him who wouldn't allow Allow him to kind of go down that. Go down that road. President Trump seems to now be coalescing. You know the the people he considers most loyal bringing Abaco POKES and others hope book Hicks and others and kicking out the folks. Who were you know? Once called the adults in the room. Well you've identified something very important Anderson. One side effect of the president's paranoia is that he does get rid of a lot of folks who he might be better served keeping so if you let go chief of staff or Secretary of defense or a secretary of state. Who's telling you things that you might like but that you should know and and is really operating in your interest although it makes you uncomfortable well. Are you really doing yourself a favor by getting rid of those folks and bringing in only those who will play to your fears? I think that is a serious concern. Going forward it's Michael and I've heard you talk about this before with paranoia. It breeds more paranoia and it kind of creates Sometimes the very thing you're you're most are afraid of which is betrayal or or you know it turns people away and have you seen that throughout trump's life. Oh yes I think that. If you just. Generally speaking as a general proposition paranoid people make others behave in ways that confirm their paranoia because everyone gets nervous and everyone starts acting on naturally and then they feel betrayed but in his own life you can see. I think two days before he was married. He demanded his first wife sign a prenuptial agreement because he was paranoid about her that seeded mistrust in their relationship and ultimately he felt betrayed. So this is not a functional quality even though he would advertise it as such Michael Dantonio. Tim No tally. Thanks so much. Appreciate it just ahead. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg clearly in the minds of his opponents as many of them spent the weekend bringing up controversies from his past and Some warming statements from his past details when we continue not been on any ballot. So far won't be for the upcoming votes in Nevada and South Carolina but that certainly has not stopped Democratic presidential hopefuls from going after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as Bloomberg thinks hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign his opponents or criticizing him for trying to buy the election and for some of his previous support of stop and Frisk police tactics. But stop and Frisk is the only controversial issue from Bloomberg's past that he's facing eradicate tonight takes a deeper look. I want you to know that I realized back then I was wrong. And I'm sorry that was Michael Bloomberg in November last year offering up a mea culpa for the controversial policing policy he encouraged known is stop and Frisk when Bloomberg was mayor of New York City. The Stop and Frisk policy allowed police officers to do just that stop and frisk anyone they suspected of a crime in two thousand thirteen in NYPD. Report showed African American and Latino men were disproportionately targeted. We could.

"CAIXA. Jerem gets into the JOE. Recuse himself I then have Which which frankly. I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job I would have said. Thanks but I can't thank you. It's extremely unfair. And that's a mild word to the president. He frame put sessions did is being unfair to the president and private. He was more explicit saying this about him personally reading now. From the Molar report quote the President opened the conversation by saying. I don't have a lawyer. The president expressed anger again about the refusal and brought up Roy Cohn stating that. He wished Cohn was his attorney. That was nearly two years ago long before the Senate Republicans voted to essentially give him a blank check with their votes to acquit him. He wanted someone to do his bidding and now he apparently has what he wants joining US senior legal analyst and former Federal Prosecutor Elian who signed this protest statement also former trump White House lawyer. Jim Schultz L. You say you didn't sign this letter lately. Wha what what for you made use on Anderson. I don't sign letters like this lightly so the best part about being a federal prosecutor. Is You get to just do your job? All your about is the fact. The law doing what's right and politics plays no part in that and that to me is the central. Tenet of the Department of Justice. It's all about two things having your credibility and being independent and I think over the last year when he's been in office bill bar has done serious irreparable damage to those two things the credibility and independence of himself and the Justice Department. He's gone too far. Justice Department needs to stand apart and be independent. That's why I signed the letter. Jim Obviously very clearly. You did not sign the letter. Make sure people know that But it was signed by Department of Justice officials who were under both Republican and Democratic administrations. And they wrote in part governments that use enormous power of law enforcement to punish their enemies and reward their allies are not constitutional publix. They are Autocracies what do you think is wrong? About what these officials are saying first off. I think they had a tremendous rush to judgment that and I think the the fact that bill bar immediately said Yeah. I'll talk before Congress on this issue tells you all you need to know. And in this instance the US attorney came to bill bar. It was not the other way around. According to the reports of the Justice Department and also the supervisors the careers of the folks that are supervisors in the. Us Attorney's office called into question the decisions that were made by the line prosecutors in that case. So let's not let's not be lost on that. And then secondly you know we we keep saying well. These folks are not partisan parties The one Justice Department official. Who HAPPENED TO LEAVE? The the office wasn't Obama's associate counsel to the president held the same job that I held with President trump so and those are inherently partisan positions that that's not to say the politics factored into his decision making but for for everyone to say that you know folks don't have a partisan I on things so that were the people that are leaving career. Prosecutors there absolutely independent just isn't the case. I mean you had Bauer out the other day right New York Times article. Bauer happen to be it. Obama Obama White House counsel. So you have a lot of folks that have a partisan agenda pushing this thing out before the of really have really been discovered as it relates to what happened and bar is vehement about about stating that. That decision was made long before any of the tweets long before and before the president made any statements on this matter. He also came out and said look. You're not helping me out here when you when you make comments like that Mr President. And he said that publicly because you know he has a job to do and he has to have you know he has to have the trust in the folks that are working below him so. I really think that JUMP TO JUDGMENT ON BILL. Barr no question Elliott. About what about that Anderson? First of all this is not two thousand. Democrats who signed this letter. This is two thousand and former prosecutors. Who RELYING WITH BOTH PARTIES. Who served under both parties? I served more time under Republican than Democrat but this is no rush to judgment bill barring his Republican or Democrat. Bill Bar has been in for a full year. And let's look at the track record here first of all. He missed stated he distorted Robert ballers findings he tried to keep the whistle blowers complain on Ukraine from going to Congress. The law is very clear that had to go to Congress. He declined to even open an investigation of the Ukraine matter. When I think any prosecutor worth his salt would at open an investigation and take a look and out of the sixty thousand plus cases that the Justice Department does every year. What two cases has William Bar and the higher echelons of the Justice Department? Come into an overruled the trial prosecutors the Line Prosecutors Michael Flynn and Roger Stone. What are those people have in common their both close political allies of Donald Trump? You can't ignore this pattern. It's not all about Roger. Stone Roger Stone was the Straw. That broke the back. But it's been the full year of abuse from William Bar. Jim What about that if I mean if there are thousands of prosecutions? Isn't it a little suspect that that bar ways in when you have hyper when you have a high profile criminal matters such as this that evolve you know high profile issues political issues? It's frequent east onto up to the Justice Department happens time and time again in prior administrations and. Ellie will tell you. That's absolutely the case. In this instance the fact that the US attorney according to Justice Department reports reached opposite relates to this case that tells you all you know of any other faces wanted prosecutors who who were supervisors line prosecutors who were supervisors were disagreed with the decision of the folks on the case that happened to be pretty junior lawyers as it relates that office yet so Anderson. What's any other specific examples so that bar prosecutors and some have a hard time? I'm having a hard time hearing you but but I'll finish with this point so the and that's not ignoring. I just can't hear you very well. The the the issue here is not only. Do we have young prosecutors in this case but what happens prosecutors sometimes grip very tight to their cases right they get invested in cases lawyers. Do It prosecutors do it. And that's why there's this system where you go up the chain in order to get approvals as as you move through a case when you're either going to resolve the case. Where bring a case so anderson talk about Elliott very quickly got? What's so unusual about this case? Is that you have donald trump openly tweeting and urging the Justice Department to get involved in. Bill Bar dutifully falls in line every time. Thank you Jim Jim. I'm sorry about the problems on my end Jim SCHOLTZ. Thanks very much coming up next. The president's reaction to all this reporting about his State of mind namely his reported paranoia in the wake of impeachment later problematic words from Michael Bloomberg's pass what he said how it may affect his campaign today talking tonight about this. Remarkable bipartisan protests. William bars conduct as attorney general and the growing concern that the president may be weaponising. The Justice Department to talk about how it's all being received or want to check Jim Acosta at the White House. So how is the president reacting to not just the attorney general the way the president's come and during the justice system to protect his interest you Anderson. I can tell you that Talk to a White House official earlier this evening. Who said no? The president still has confidence in the attorney general and that his mind when it comes to bill bar has not changed. He's still is fully confident. This Attorney General. And why not? He's essentially doing what the president wants for the most part but I would say interesting going back to that letter signed by more than two thousand a veteran officials of this justice department if you go to the bottom of that letter it encourages people inside the Justice Department. If they see something say something. A- basically a urging them to engage in some of the same whistle blowing that got under the president's skin during the Ukraine inquiry. And so that is something that obviously is not going to sit well with the president but so far no change whatsoever and how this president of used the attorney general who picks coming back to the White House the president leaning on other kind of longtime AIDS People who were there early on during campaign or early on who who had laughter now coming back it is. Is there a sense that the president is kind of hunkering down with the people? He considers most oil before the campaign even gets more heated. There was a times piece Kind of alluding to that absolutely Anderson are talking to my sources. I will tell you. I talked to a trump adviser earlier this evening. Who said the president is bringing back? Make no question about it Some of his most trusted aides and hope Hicks would be near the top of that list if not at the top of the list. It's almost like a family member to this president over the last several years. And I'll tell you anderson. I talked to an aide to the president Late last week And asked whether or not this president is essentially going after his enemies and this aid responded to me. Would that surprise you? So I think there's an acknowledgement inside the president's own team that he is lashing out right now people that he perceives to be his enemies. Now one of the things that we should point out moving forward. I mean the president. You don't have to talk to anonymous officials about the president has been saying this out loud as he was telling Geraldo Rivera in that interview last week. He is seriously considering. The idea of cutting aids out of his foreign leader calls The same kind of scenario that got him into trouble with leader of Ukraine. There were AIDS listening to that phone. Call that didn't like a who didn't like what the president was saying and then reported it and essentially that is what spiraled into the impeachment inquiry and if the president considers something along those lines that would once again Anderson Shatter one of those Washington norms trusted national security officials on the line with the president. When he's talking to a head of state it would really change a lot over here at the White House Anderson. Jim Costume Jim. Thanks for all this playing. There's reporting as I mentioned the New York Times that adds to To gyms insights into the president's state of mind and the atmosphere inside the White House since the impeachment in word a paranoid in a phrase according to the Times as sourcing Turning Paranoia into. Us Policy won't get some perspective from someone knows the president. Well trump biographer. Michael Dantonio also someone who does presidential paranoia well former Nixon Library director. Tim neff tally. He's currently CNN. Presidential historian. Michael Michael. Given you know what you know about President Trump citizen trump is a whiff of paranoia. All that surprising. He's ridden about that in books. Well he has written about it Anderson he published a book called the art of the comeback and offered three ten tips for a defective comeback. And he advised number three to be paranoid. He thinks that paranoia is an effective strategy when it comes to managing people and when it comes to doing business and I think all of the attitude that we see him bring into the presidency. Are things that evidence themselves early in his life so he's never trusted people very readily and is very quick to identify someone as an enemy and then try to root out. Those who aren't loyal enough. So paranoia is something. That's always been a trait for the president. And he considers it a useful even constructive thing too I mean was was Nixon. I mean from what I've heard the tapes. There's definitely kind of strains of paranoia with Nixon. Yes I'm I'm afraid I've seen this movie before and it's really ugly Richard Nixon surrounded himself with people who understood His hates and they would play on those hatreds Nixon In night in the summer of Nineteen seventy-three he. He very much lost it. He was so angry at the Pentagon papers ultimately and he was convinced that a Jewish conspiracy was out to get him and he had a a top aide named Charles Colson and some some unfavorable unemployment statistics came out and Colson had one of his staff pretend to be a Time magazine reporter and call the Bureau of Labor Statistics to find out the the the family names of the economists that had worked on it. He reported the president they were Jews. And this led Jew this led President Nixon to demand that he had a list of every Jewish person in US government because he said on tape the Jews are are not loyal they're disloyal to the United States he fulminated and this led hit..

"One of the things I'm distressed about is the increasing use of the criminal process to achieve political results. And I WANNA I WANNA get away from that keeping them honest. There's no evidence of that and plenty to the contrary enough to concern two thousand plus former justice department officials enough to prompt those federal judges to call an emergency meeting not enough of course for John Bolton who is also an attorney to speak candidly he actually tease chapter fourteen of his book today but didn't actually say anything of substance. Whoever forever John? Bolton there's a Donald Air air served as deputy attorney general under George H W Bush and there's a piece in the Atlantic calls bar quote UNAMERICAN and writes quote. The fundamental problem is that he does not believe in the central tenet of our system of government. The no person is above law. He spoke this evening. Cnn's Wolf Blitzer Known Bill Bar for about forty years forty years and now you're calling him in the article in the Atlantic un-american you say given our national faith and trust in the rule of law no no one can subvert. It is not too strong to say that bill bar is UNAMERICAN. Un-american strong words has changed over these forty years or what I I don't. I don't know that he's changed because he's always had a very strong view that the executive autumn have a great deal of power. I've never known quite how far it would go. And there was never any reason to test it. Because when he was attorney general under George H W Bush George H W Bush had no interest in being an autocrat. So now we're faced with a situation. Where Bill Bar has won the job attorney general under a president who is currently does want to be an autocrat a moderate voice making what would be absent any evidence. A pretty extreme CL- claim but it's not like there's a shortage of evidence to how the presidency's his role he's made no secret of it he said you'll recall that article. Two of the Constitution gives him the power to do quote. Whatever I want his president. That's what he wants to see the attorney general well. He's also talked about that he wants someone like Roy Cohen. His former mentor and personal fixer. Something he did not get in the last attorney.

"Good evening former National Security Adviser John. Bolton today once again had the opportunity to speak out about what he saw during moments that were central to the president's impeachment and once again he chose not to continuing to tease. Not Tell so we begin tonight keeping them honest with some other public servants who are taking their own beauty more seriously more than two thousand former federal prosecutors and other Justice Department officials veterans of Republican and Democratic Administrations. All of them calling on attorney general bar to step down quoting now from their statement Mr Board's actions in doing the president's personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words. Those actions the damage they've done to the Department of Justice's reputation for integrity in the rule of law require Mr Boorda resign now that is unprecedented. And so is this. Usa Today reporting a National Association of Federal Judges has called an emergency meeting for tomorrow to address growing concerns about intervention by the Justice Department and the president in politically sensitive cases. All of this in the wake of the Attorney General's intervention after the president tweeted about it in the sentencing of the president's friend and fix or Roger Stone as you know four or federal prosecutors quit the case in protest. One quit his job. The president congratulated Attorney General Bar. Who maintains his impartiality despite recent reporting that he's also now revisiting investigations of some of the president's perceived enemies. Can you ensure to the American public that the Justice Department is not going to be used as a weapon? A highly charged political season. Absolutely and that You know peer one of my passions is the feeling that we have to ensure that the Department of Justice is not used as a political football..

"And giving you the context on why they matter. After the Justice Department intervened on behalf of an old friend of president trump's the attorney general of the United States is preparing to take the hot seat. Meanwhile in different hotseat senators heard today from one of trump's picks for the Federal Reserve will tell you why her comments on returning the US to the Gold Standard. Have caused a gold rush of concern. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. Today's episode is brought to you by Cambria hotels little luxuries big difference when Planning Party. It's always nice to know if people are actually going to show up especially if you're the House of Representatives. Your party is a house. Judiciary Committee hearing and your guest of honor is Attorney General William Bar and he just rsvp yes this is good for lawmakers because they will lot of things they wanna ask them about. The first thing is Roger Stone. You've probably been hearing stones name a lot recently. He's an old friend of trump's and a longtime political consultant for hot minute. He was even an adviser on trump's twenty. Sixteen campaign here. He is on an episode of inside edition the year before trump has the size and the style and the boldness to be president last year. In the middle of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation stone was indicted and later convicted on seven. Felony counts including lying to Congress and witness tampering. So that was a big deal but it until this week that things got really crazy on Monday. Federal prosecutors submitted their sentencing memo to the judge to be clear this is a totally normal and as part of their job. They recommended that stone be sentenced to seven to nine years in prison which they said is within federal guidelines then a little after midnight trump stepped up to defend his longtime friend saying the whole situation with stone was a miscarriage of justice and then that morning the Justice Department as in those prosecutors bosses intervened and said Yeah. We don't actually agree with the sentence and that they were going to revise the recommendation to a lighter sentence usually when prosecutors sending their memo their bosses don't step on their toes like this this because what's going to be recommended disgust ahead of time but that didn't seem to happen and the whole seven to nine years thing reportedly blindsided DOJ officials but then another rare thing happened the four prosecutors who were behind that original sentence resign. All of this made it look like the president may have influenced the DOJ's decision but according to the Justice Department. They made up their mind to intervene before trump. Hit tweet to be clear. Experts are saying this mass exodus of prosecutors is super unusual and now career. Prosecutors are reportedly worried about facing more pressure from the trump administration on future cases. So Dem's WANNA ask bar about all of that. But that's not the only thing on their minds. The House Judiciary Committee is also planning to ask bar about Jesse Lou. Here's what we want Justice Department panel last summer. Some of you may know that my US Attorney's office here in Washington DC is unique among the ninety four US attorney's offices in the country. Her name not be that familiar but she's the former. Us Attorney for Washington DC her role that she was in charge of some big name cases. Like you guessed it. The Roger Stone case and also cases investigating other people in trump's inner circle like Rick Gates and Michael Flynn less December trump. Put her up for top Gig with the Treasury Department. Her confirmation hearing was actually supposed to be today but on Tuesday trump pulled her nomination. He reportedly wasn't happy with Hauer. Office handled the stone case and that she wasn't directly involved enough with how this and other cases played out dem's thing pulling her nomination was a bridge too far and want to get some answers from our old boss. Bill Bar Democrats also want to ask them about things that happened before this week about the DOJ's relationship with trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. This dates all the way back to the start of the impeachment proceedings. According to reports there was an entire process set up by the DOJ for Giuliani to directly. Feed them information. He had about the Biden's and Ukraine from his personal investigations despite not having any official role in the White House. So the House judiciary has a big to do planned and bar has an answering to do. Here's house speaker. Nancy Pelosi in a press conference today. The attorney general has stoop to such levels. He's lied to Congress which it will be in contempt. He has engaged in these activities. What a sad disappointment to our country reminder. It's only been a week since trump was acquitted in his impeachment. Trial and DEM's are calling all this recent drama trump's retribution tour. Meanwhile bar has been described as trump's sword shield even though his role as attorney general of the United States means he's opposed to represent the interests of the government as a whole trump maintains. He didn't try to intervene but that he could if he wanted to know. I didn't speak to the just. I'd be able to do it if I wanted to. Have the absolute right to do it. I stay out of things to a degree. That people wouldn't believe even so bar told. Abc News this afternoon that trump's tweets make it impossible for him to do his job for example when it comes to the Roger Stone's sentencing debacle. Barr says that he had already decided to revise the recommended seven to nine year sentence. But then the tweet occurred the question as well Now what do I do and Do you go forward with what you think is the right decision or do you pull back because of the tweet and it. Just sort of illustrates had disrupted these tweets convey. Bill Bar is scheduled to testify at the end of March but between now and then Democrats may come up with even more things to add to their list when he finally gets in the hot seat coming up. How's your knowledge of the price of gold? Well depending on how. Today's Senate Banking Committee hearing went. That might come in handy after the break. Business travel doesn't have to be boring. Cambria hotels are designed for the modern business traveler offering guests a distinct experience with the simple guilt free indulgences that make business travel better think sipping a craft beer on a rooftop patio bluetooth mirrors in spa lake bathrooms and locally inspired art and design. Cambria hotels are located across the US book now at choice hotels Dot com slash Cambria. That's choice hotels dot com slash C. A. M. B. R. A. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Banking Committee had to decide whether to invite to new. People to a very exclusive club this morning. We will consider the nominations of the honorable. Judy Shelton to be a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The Federal Reserve is the country's central bank in charge of keeping the economy stable. It's run by a group of Seven. People called the Board of Governors. There are only five board members now so trump had to fill two of those seats which confirmed by the Senate these are seen as partisan positions though since the Fed only cares about the economy's health the group's decisions are pretty independent from the politics of DC. One of the nominees today was an economist named Christopher Waller. He basically sailed through the hearing instead. All eyes were on Judy Shelton. Who's been getting a lot of attention for some of her economic policy. Hot takes to be clear. Shelton definitely has a lot of experience for nearly four decades going back to my years as a doctoral student at the University of UTAH. I have focused on the impact of monetary policy on economic performance. But she's also said some kind of controversial things. Things members of both parties have been concerned about like. She said that the Fed should not be independent from politics. And she's questioned whether the Fed should exist at all today. She walked back. Those statements. The Fed operates independently as it should working for the best interests of the nation but one position that got us. Googling was her past support for the US returning to the gold standard. That's all we had in some shape or form up until the nineteen seventies. It means the value of paper money would depend on. How much gold the? Us has some argue that the gold standard limits economic growth because then the health of the economy depends entirely on. How much gold. There is but the gold standard was intended to prevent things like inflation. That'S THE ARGUMENT. Shelton supported in the past. And it's raised a lot of eyebrows on both sides of the aisle heading into her hearing so today she firmly shot the idea down. I would not advocate going back to a prior historical monetary arrangement instead. She seemed to flip the narrative and claims now that she only talked about the gold standard because she thinks we need to learn from the past. So Thanks for the history lesson. It's not totally clear. How senators on the Banking Committee will vote on Shelton's nomination and after the hearing some senators on both sides of the aisle said they still have concerns. And that's a big deal because in recent history the Fed nominees on the board were confirmed with at least some bipartisan support. In fact Republicans were willing to reject to trump's recent picks in part because they were too close to the president. Some people who closely watched this kind of thing thinks shelton is already a contender to take the top spot on the Fed. A couple of years. Jerome Powell term as the body's chair is up in two thousand twenty two so if Shelton gets the Republican support she needs in the Senate. She'll be a name.

"Is broken support Medicare for all I stand by supporting Medicare for all. But I'm also that pragmatists that went on chief executive of the country. Like, I was I'm gonna find the immediate things that we can do because I'm telling you right now, we're not gonna pull health insurance from one hundred and fifty million Americans who have private insurance who like their insurance my union brothers and sisters who've negotiated for their health insurance. It's going to have to be pathway. Getting there that's going to start with the common sense things that could unite Americans with all the respect Senator. That's not what this Bill does that you co-sponsor friends long enough to say that whenever you start something with all. You know, it's trouble. The quote, the text of the Bill says, quote, it Shelby unlawful for private health insurance. L health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this act? And I just wonder look you favor. A pragmatic approach that doesn't go that far. And I just wondered did you feel pressure from liberal and progressive activists? Oh, you need to sign up for Medicare for all. When you didn't actually believe in it. Look, I'm the guy that's in the saddle and the most difficult conditions and may change because I don't bend to pressure. I focused on people in America healthcare should be a right. That is where we need to go to by the way, most Americans agree that if you're in this nation is wealthiest country in the planet earth. It should be a right now, there's many ways, but we're going to get there. I believe if we're designing our system help Medicare for all is the right way to go. But I'm also realistic to say, and you know, this when I become president. We may have only maybe a fifty fifty tie in the Senate and my vice president whoever she is it's gonna have to get a lot of exercise going to the Senate and breaking ties we are going to have to do things that do my Guinea.

Do you agree? I think that if you number one have seen the conduct of an attorney general he is eroded his credibility to the point where I believe he should resign. He is clearly misled congress today the impeach I believe right now he should resign. I think everything should be on the table at the end of the day. But if you have a person that has undermined the urgent independence of of the attorney general's office who a guy who's literally overseeing ongoing investigations into criminal activity in this president. And you lost your ability to trust. You clearly we're trying to spend your acting more like Rudy Giuliani than the independent attorney general of this country. I'm definitely worried and then when you read a report, which is a testimony to deceit, which blew it shows a campaign that had more. Multiple dozens and dozens of contacts with a foreign adversary doing things like sharing polling information that if any of my colleagues were running for president did that with their own soup with us superpac would be considered illegal here.
