Amber Athey: The FBI Undermined Itself
"I mean this is why people have declining trust in American institutions and this was a cry from the left during the Trump years of his presidency that it was the right that was undermining institutions but actually they had undermined themselves because of their behavior because of the FBI falling for the Russian collusion hoax for example that really was a turning point in people's ability to trust federal law enforcement then during the Biden administration it seemed like attorney general Merrick Garland was taking this to another level Taking on that national school board association letter that painted parents protesting at school board meetings as domestic terrorists or rating Mar-a-Lago or refusing to properly investigate the Hunter Biden laptop scandal which involves allegations of corruption surrounding the Biden family and foreign powers So this is a trend that's very obvious for anyone to see if they're paying attention and I think it's a shame that these whistleblowers have to speak about this anonymously because they no longer feel like they'll even have their voices heard or be protected within the agency

How the AG Gave Us a Second Term for Trump
"So I begin, the question of whether the U.S. needs a second Trump term has been answered. Thanks to attorney general Merrick Garland, were in it. If by a Trump presidency, one means investigations of Donald Trump that go on and on. The first Trump presidency began with the never ending Russia collusion narrative. Which, of course, it was completely bogus. But it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter to people on the left. Now we have its offspring, the classified documents narrative. The new narrative shares the old ones almost daily insinuation that mister Trump did something awful. For many, this means hoping God's justice finally rains down on a serial malefactor. For all a familiar political drug is back in circulation. That's a good term, political drug.
Will Merrick Garland Listen to President Trump?
"Well, I will say this, if they indict, this president, they will they will see mayhem. They will see true mayhem in America. Because I suspect if, in fact, they indict president Trump, there's no way anybody's going to be able to stop the maga bomb. I don't think anybody's going to be able to do it. And president Trump understands this. That's why he's going out there and he gave the interview with Fox News and saying, hey, look, you know, somebody needs to turn down the temperature here. What can I do to help? And that was the message he conveyed to the attorney general Merrick Garland. I hope that the attorney general listens. Because people are raging, they are seething. And that they see exactly what the federal government is doing here. I mean folks. It is based on what happened yesterday with the Justice Department. I am of the opinion that this entire thing is a farce. And the only thing that needs to happen is for the attorney general to resign and shame. Very clear to me, based on the behavior of the Justice Department, that it is time for the attorney general to go. But I'm not sure the Democrats are going to let that happen. And you want to know why? I'm going to tell you why. Because if they do, Trump wins. That's why Trump wins.

I wasn't expecting much, but I wasn't expecting him to celebrate the counter terrorism work of members of the Department of Justice. Was anything substantive said in the last three minutes by the attorney general? A lot of hollow platitudes for sure, but one good thing was identified. And that is he claimed that he personally authorized approved the search warrant being a submitted to the judge. So now we know a responsibility lies. And so any other finger pointing and second guessing set that aside, Merrick Garland now owns this and it looks like he's going to eat it. This is for him to hang with and to be he's claimed that he's claimed the responsibility. It is his. We'll talk

"It's now 6 52 and former president Trump and the Justice Department are in agreement, both asking a court to unseal information about the government's search, a former president Trump's Florida home. Yesterday, attorney general Merrick Garland appearance in a surprise appearance, he forcefully defended the FBI and the Justice Department. Joining us live CBS chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan, the moderator of Sunday's face the nation. So Margaret will releasing these documents bring more clarity some are saying that an affidavit is what we need to see what would make things clear for us. Well, this is the thing, is if we get this disclosure, the question is how much will be still kept private and redacted due to the fact that there may be very sensitive information in the documents that those individuals from the FBI were searching for at the presence of the former president's Florida home. So we will look for those filings ourselves if they are indeed posted and released, the 3 p.m. deadline of today has certainly created even heightened interest in what can be made public, but as the attorney general said yesterday from the podium, there's a lot he can't speak about. If we have that affidavit, if we could see specifically the types, the classification level, for example, of the sensitive documents we might have more insight. As you know, Washington Post was first to report that among the documents being searched for was information about nuclear programs. Margaret on the hill, the house is set to give President Biden what some say would be a major legislative victory today with passage of that $740 billion reconciliation bill. Do you think this is going to be that major legislative victory? Are there the things in this bill that will resonate with voters? Well, there's quite a lot in the bill that it checks off boxes on the current president's agenda that he had really struggled to get through for the better part of a year. There are also things left on the sidelines that things he campaigned and promised for are not in here like paid family leave for example. And some of the things to help parents with small children. But it does include the biggest climate Bill in U.S. history. That's a major campaign promise for him to campaign on going into the midterms and potentially into running for reelection. So he can say he's delivered on some of this, but there are still agenda items left on the sidelines that we would expect if Democrats are able to hold on to the majority, for example, you might hear the president talk about over the next few years. What do you plan to cover this weekend? Well, we are certainly going to be talking about all the developments with the 45th president and this extraordinary FBI surge in Justice Department investigation into his actions and the papers that he may have illegally taken to his Florida residents. We know already 15 boxes of sense of information were taken months ago. Yeah, a little bit of news there, I guess. Okay, thank you, Margaret, that is Margaret Brennan.

"Edition from NPR news. I'm Leila faldon in Washington, D.C.. And I'm a Martinez and Culver City, California. Former president Donald Trump says he will not oppose the release of documents related to the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago home. Attorney general Merrick Garland, yesterday said the Justice Department had asked a federal court in Florida to unseal them, but he also noted that the former president could have made him public at any time. Both the warrant and the FBI property receipt were provided on the day of the search to the former president's council, who was onsite during the search. Garland spoke just hours after an attempted attack on an FBI office and Cincinnati, Ohio. And he condemned the violent attacks and threats and rhetoric that he said or being aimed at DoJ officials and FDA. FBI agents. I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked. For more we're joined now by former federal prosecutor Renato mariotti Renato did the Justice Department wait too long to ask for the release of these documents. I don't think so, in fact, in a typical case you would expect that there wouldn't be a request at this point in time to have these documents released. In the past, the Justice Department had spoken, for example, in the Clinton investigation outside the bounds of what you would ordinarily see in an investigation. And that didn't turn out very well. So I think it was wise for the Justice Department to take a very careful course here. The public pressure do you think that had something to do with this? Well, no question. I think that a lot of it had to do with misinformation that there was in the media. I know that the attorney general went out of his way to correct some inaccuracies that had been floating around in his statement. And I think he heard the outcry from many including many elected officials, and I think that definitely played a role in this decision. Do you think, though, it'll make a difference to critics? I mean, after all, the underlying affidavits with detailed evidence are not part of this request for the court. So you think what we're going to see when we see it will make that much of a difference. No, and to be very blunt. I mean, I think even if the affidavit was released in Merrick Garland, answered every question that they had. I just think that there are ultimately our critics who are going to criticize this because they're going to criticize the Justice Department if it is searching a residence of Donald Trump regardless. So considering that, then, why do it? Do we go back to just try to set the record straight? Well, I think there's a couple of reasons. One is that because the Justice Department was saying nothing and that was usually the course, of course, that just department takes. I think it was creating a vacuum. And it allowed the former president to fill that vacuum with misinformation. Essentially, he was able to hold back the warrant and the inventory that he did have in his position. And basically spend a misleading narrative of the facts and what this did is it essentially ended that vacuum by putting out some accurate information then essentially I would say forced the former president's hand. He has been saying that he wants everything public, but deliberately hasn't released the information that he had. And so essentially the Justice Department called his bluff on that. It's always amazing though how saying nothing can sound so loud. Absolutely. I actually think it added a power to the statement that Garland did make. I mean, it's interesting, right? He had a very short statement. It was only about four minutes long. But it definitely had a power, even though he didn't say much because there was all the silence. And it was clear that he was taking great care to say as little as possible to protect the integrity of the investigation into take care of the rights of, in this case, a person who is not who has not been charged. So let's say we go to the release these documents. How detailed of a picture will we get about what exactly was seized? Well, you'll get a detailed picture of exactly what was seized because the inventory will have a detailed list and essentially the list will be sufficient to identify each of the items that was seized well enough to ensure that if something wasn't returned that there would be some record that the owner of the property could use to try to make a claim against it later. The reason that you have an inventory like that is so that the property holder can say, hey, I didn't get my snow blower back or whatever was seized by the FBI in a typical case. What we won't see, of course, is a lot of the underlying evidence that was used to obtain the warrant. What kind of conclusion could a rational observer get from what we might see? Well, if reports are accurate, that this is regarding highly classified information, including potential nuclear secrets. Then I think the information that an observer could get is, first of all, potentially the share volume of classified information that was on the president's residence at the time. You may get some detail regarding at a very, very high level vague information regarding what that was about so they could give you a sense of whether it's the sort of information that he would have had a purpose in having in his residence or keeping after his presidency. And I think you'll also through that list potentially get a sense of why the Justice Department may have had some reason why they thought they needed to go in and get this information. Yeah, so it sounds like it could be crucial then these documents, if prosecutors want to make a case against the former president. Oh, I think that's absolutely right. And I think also it will justify the search potentially or not. I mean, in other words, there was a tagline that the former president was using right after the search saying if they did it to me, they could do it to you. Well, I don't have sensitive nuclear secrets in my basement. And that we know of Renato that we know of. There you go. Well, I think if they did, they would not have sent me a subpoena and asked polite politely for the nuclear secrets back. I think the FBI would have bob beat down my door and played some time ago. One more thing quickly, does the Justice Department have any obligation to offer any kind of legal protection for Donald Trump's rights if he's charged with a crime? Well, no, they do not. I mean, not in this instance, there would be no legal obligation for them to do so Former federal prosecutor Renato mariotti, thanks a lot. Thank you.

"U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland coming out very strongly in defense of his people regarding the story and the search of Mar-a-Lago. He has had Baxter. He has global news. Yeah, rich, thank you, Garland, says he's asked a judge to unseal the warrant, joining us live as Bloomberg's mark and the cat Bloomberg national politics reporter. Mark, this is unusual circumstance. First of this search warrant on a former president of the United States and now the attorney general coming out basically and saying, you lay your hands, don't lay any hands verbally on my people. Right, it's very unusual for the Justice Department to speak about an ongoing investigation. They usually let their core to actions speak for them. But Merrick Garland, I think, was more or less forced into saying something because Donald Trump and his Republican supporters were portraying that search at his Mar-a-Lago resort as some kind of politically motivated attack on him. That was unwarranted. So Merrick Garland essentially gave a press conference a statement today saying he didn't take this decision lightly to personally agreed to seek the search warrant to look for the documents the records are looking for at Mar-a-Lago. Any defended his agents for doing their jobs essentially against the attacks from Trump and Republicans. So that we all understand. He is bound to not release the contents of the warrant. That's why he's asked the judge to open it. Donald Trump, though, is in possession of it and can release it and intimation that probably things in it that Trump doesn't want to make public. That's exactly right, Ed. In fact, Trump also has the ability to object to the unsealing of the search warrant if you want judge gave Trump until 3 o'clock eastern tomorrow to object to the unsealing. So the ball is kind of in Donald Trump's court now and Merrick Garland has kind of calling his bluff that this search of his Mar-a-Lago home was unjustified. Yeah, and this is, as you say, and we have about 30 seconds Mark, but responding to criticism, both from Trump and from right-wing commentators and the like, correct? Right.

"The Justice Department is asking a federal court to unseal the search warrant the FBI received before searching Donald Trump's Florida estate this week Attorney general Merrick Garland cited several reasons including the fact that Trump himself publicly confirmed the search And the substantial public interest in this matter It's unclear if and when the request might be granted by a federal court in Miami I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant as part of an ongoing Justice Department probe of classified White House records recovered from Trump's home earlier this year
"attorney general merrick garland" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Attorney general. Merrick Garland on the search, a former president, Donald Trump's home in Florida. We're talking about Mar-a-Lago that happened Monday evening, so we are watching actually right now a live shot of the podium at the press office at the U.S. Justice Department. So as soon as he steps up to that podium and begins speaking, we will certainly talk. We will take you there to listen to what attorney general of the United States Merrick Garland has to say about this. This comes at a time where the former president has been in the news a lot this week, Mike. We had that search by the FBA of Mar-a-Lago happening on Monday. And then of course we had the former president at a deposition just yesterday pleading the 5th before New York attorney general letitia James, that was about the value of real estate holdings, whether it was for accessing capital or whether it was for taxes. And some discrepancies discrepancies in that. And then of course we have, as the big backdrop, the hearings into the January 6th capitol riot, so there was a lot going on. As you say, there's one thing president Trump is good at. It's keeping his name in the news. Certainly this week, though. Although he's not necessarily keeping his name down. I'm not sure this is the headlines he wants, but obviously it's been a fascinating to watch the reaction to this. There's so much pressure on attorney general Garland to do something to explain the thinking behind this search. And give us more details. I think even on the left side of the political aisle, there's just a lot of demand on him to explain what happened. So, you know, we're standing by here and hopefully we'll get some explanation on that. But really an unprecedented thing. It's not very common for the FBI to do a search like this and then have to come explain themselves. Monday's search, by the way, related to a request from the national archives and records administration to the Justice Department to look into the transfer of presidential documents to Mar-a-Lago, including classified materials. The archives in January retrieved 15 boxes of records from Mar-a-Lago so they had already retrieved a bunch of information. So just a little bit of a reminder of what that search by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago on Monday was about. Again, we are waiting some comments from the U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland. In the meantime, we've talked a lot about the legal justification for that search on Monday and what the potential legal implications could mean for former president Donald Trump. Lucky for us, just right next to me in our interactive broker studio is someone who follows all things legal is our Bloomberg June grosso. She is course, of course, host of Bloomberg law on Bloomberg radio. So June, Merrick Garland, what might we anticipate hearing from him shortly? Well, what would you want to hear? I don't know that he's going to speak specifically to the raid, excuse me, to the search warrant that was executed at Mar-a-Lago. He may talk around it, he may explain why a search warrant is usually issued. I mean, I'm not quite sure that because usually he wouldn't say anything. The reason I think he's coming out is because there's been so much pressure, there's been so much misinformation about what happened with that search, that he perhaps feels the need and well it's funny that you say that because you did use the word raid and we've kind of talked about this in the news room because certain sides of the political aisle have used that word. FBI has talked about it being a search or at least a lot of reporting has said it's a search because there were legal justifications for it. But it just is a reminder of the narrative that is being shaped by lots of different individuals and walks of life on this. And now it's come out and misinformation. And now it's come out that before this search warrant was executed in June, there was another, there was a subpoena actually served by the FBI and then we had that incident where they went apparently they met with lawyers. They look at the room where the documents were being were being kept. There are some reports that they took some documents with them that were in fact classified documents that they found. And then when they got back, they called the lawyers. They wrote the email them actually and said, put a lock on that door secure it. Then there was another subpoena for cameras for camera surveillance that happened around that room. So that's two subpoenas. And then, so it indicates that there was a lot more going on that there was a problem getting what they needed to get for them to then go and get a search warrant. And when they did, they didn't do it in a way that they normally do. They did knock on the door at 6 a.m. when come in, the dogs and the agents and their jackets. They came in without their normal FBI gear. They came in plain clothes, you'd say. They came in like about 10 o'clock in the morning. They called the Secret Service before and made sure that the way was clear for them, the Secret Service, check the subpoena, check the search warrant. So this was done, I think, because they were, there was a fear that there were classified documents there, we have seen instances before where at the beginning of his presidency where Trump revealed revealed things that he shouldn't have to the Russian ambassador. So could there have been a possible fear that the former president or somebody within his sphere were getting ready to do something with some of those classified documents? They were apparently was there apparently was a tip that there were classified documents there, and no one knows where that tip came from, but there was a tip that there were classified documents there. And also, I mean, think about it. I don't know what they found from the cameras that surveilled that room, but that shows the concern that they had. And you know, if the apparently when they took documents earlier in the year when the national archive retrieved those 15 boxes of documents, there were classified, highly classified. A documents in there. So that could reveal sources and methods, all kinds of things, and there's a reason why, you know, presidents don't take these things with them. And also, remember that when general Petraeus had some classified information, the FBI didn't come in and give him a subpoena or do anything like that. They just came and executed a search warrant, so I think they were there was deference

Can the FBI Be Trusted?
"You have several years under president Trump, of the FBI, attempting to undermine the president of the United States on pretextual information, provided by the Quentin campaign on the basis of the Steele dossier. James Comey, the former head of the FBI, when he was head of the FBI, approaching Donald Trump to launder into the press, the Steele dossier, knowing that there was nothing in the Steele dossier that had been verified. He went to Donald Trump, he told him about it simply so that the media could then run with the story that the Steele dossier had been presented to president Trump and therefore it was newsworthy and BuzzFeed could run all of that material. For example, and then we got years and years of investigations down rabbit holes that led nowhere with regard to Russia. In other words, trust in the FBI is at an all time low. And yet it's the FBI under Christopher wray, apparently with a warrant that had to be signed off on by the DoJ and attorney general Merrick Garland. Now, initiating a raid into the former president of the United States. So here's the thing, could there theoretically, in some world, be it rationale for this sort of activity, sure? Sure, there could. But is that going to have to be a damned, extraordinarily solid, like rocks, I like bedrock solid, rationale, with serious underlying evidence, it had better be or what we are looking at is a political crisis.
The DOJ Is Overreaching in Its Suit Against Idaho
"The DoJ is suing the state of Idaho over its abortion ban. According to The Washington Post, the Justice Department has found its first lawsuit in the wake of a historic Supreme Court decision allowing states to outlaw abortion, arguing, a new Idaho law that would impose in your total ban on the procedure violates a federal requirement to provide medical care when a pregnant person's life or health is at stake. Attorney general Merrick Garland said that the lawsuit filed Tuesday is aimed at stopping Idaho's trigger ban, which is set to take effect August 25th. The Idaho law allows doctors to be criminally prosecuted for providing abortions. He argued that that could conflict with federal law that says patients seeking emergency medical care at a hospital accepting Medicare funds are entitled to any lifesaving treatment. Well, under what rubric, the Idaho law does not prevent doctors from providing lifesaving treatment that necessarily includes the end of the life of the child. Again, the doctrine of double effect is well known in pro life circles. So this is Merrick Garland just using a pretext to go after pro life states. The lawsuit cites several medical conditions that could require a doctor to perform an abortion for lifesaving reasons, including septic infections in a topic pregnancies. But again, there's nothing in the Idaho law that suggests that you would not be able to actually get treated for these particular conditions. The state's governor Brad little called the lawsuit and overreach. He said our nation's highest court returned the issue of abortion to the states to regulate end of story.

"Out of the war in Ukraine this morning attorney general Merrick Garland made a surprise visit to Ukraine this week, he met for about an hour we're told in a post of the Polish border with the Ukrainian prosecutor general. They talked about how the U.S. can help prosecute anyone involved in war crimes and other atrocities in Ukraine. Meanwhile, Ukraine has been pleading with Western countries for fighter jets and it looks as though there may be a breakthrough on that soon. This morning, double DT will be national security correspondent JJ green with details. There's been talks in April of Slovakia sending Soviet MiG 29 fighters to Ukraine. The Slovak said they needed Poland and the Czech Republic to cover their airspace while they wait for F-16s from the U.S. to come in. They made that point again suggesting there was some movement on this discussion. Ukraine is in dire need of these and more in modern fighter jets because they have a chance to get the upper hand on Russia in the air because Russia is flying some less than stellar fighter jets itself. Ukraine has recently shot down some of Russia's Sukhoi SU 34 fighter jets and a number of them were discovered to have rudimentary GPS units basically taped duct taped to their dashboards. So the thinking is, if Ukraine can get these modern fighter jets they're asking for, they could truly own the sky and change the complexion of this war. JJ, what's the latest on the prisoners of war there? Yeah, for the first time since her release from Russian captivity, paramedic, Ukrainian paramedic Julia pavek, known as tiara, spoke about the conditions in which he was kept and she posted a picture showing her at 110 pounds, which is a lot less than she normally weighs. She says she's emaciated. And to use her words looks terrible. She says she's grateful to God for the prisoner exchange. And saying she's in a safe place right now getting good medical care and will return to duty, but she says those other Ukrainians still in captivity are in jeopardy of ending up looking like her. And speaking of POWs, Russia's presidential spokesman Dmitry peskov said the Kremlin can not guarantee that Americans who were captured fighting

Joe Biden made it out like it was like his owed to president Obama, but this was never who president Obama really wanted on the Supreme Court. That was just him having a showdown with Republicans.

That case has already been prosecuted. Like, thank you for taking it on anyway. I guess? Or the man who murdered ahmaud Arbery? Like, okay, okay, thank you for prosecuting them again. Those men are about to get life in prison, but thank you for adding double life. And it's like, hold on, what about Breonna Taylor? What about Eric Garner? You know, what about John Crawford? What about so many cases that were ignored? What about philando Castile? Like, what about the cases that have been dropped or ignored over the past ten years? And basically it's been crickets.
