William Barr Sees ‘No Reason’ for Special Counsels for Hunter Biden, Election

"With President Donald Trump. Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said today he saw no reason. To appoint a special counsel to look into the president's claims of election front or attacks and the tax investigation into the son of President elect Joe Biden things that Trump has really been looking forward to try to prove by the way, because let's face it. The sad reality of this. I don't care what you think about whether or not There was any election fraud or anything when it came to the coverage of the election. The media. Was if you don't believe that the mainstream media is now in Kohut when it comes to what they will and will not report You're kidding yourself. You're a fool. That's all there is to it. They bent over backwards not to report anything that hunter Biden did. I mean, there was a lad, Can you imagine? ALF. I will eventually finish a sentence. Yes. Can you imagine? If Donald Trump Jr or Ivanka Trump or any of the trump Children, even Tiffany If any of them had left the laptop. At a repair shop forgot about it. And then the information that was on one about that was on it about Hunter. Biden came out about one of the trump kids, can you there would have been wall to wall coverage. They would have. They would have preempted the mast singer just to talk about the trump Children like that, But because it was hunter Biden. Not only did they not talk about it, they full on hit it. I mean, when you're not when it's when you've got something like that, right in your face when you've got a practically a full on admission that he is using his father's influence in order to financially benefit himself when there's pictures of him using drugs on a laptop. And you don't do anything about it when there's absolutely no reporting about that. Anywhere but fringe news organizations. I mean, come on. I don't even care what you think about it because you know that if it was one of the trump Children, and that was out there, there would have been like I said, Wall to wall coverage. There would have been exposes. They would have taken off regular programming and gone news wall. The wall there would have been. I mean, you would have been able to avoid it. As it stands unless you had a particular political bent. You would have had to go out of your way to find the actual information about Hunter Biden, So it's It's really kind of disgusting now in its final press conference Mar also broke with Trump in reinforcing that federal officials believe Russia was behind the cyber espionage operation targeting the U. S government government. Trump has suggested without evidence that China could be responsible Bar said the investigation and 100 Biden's financial dealings with being handled responsibly and professionally. He said. I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave. The reason that Trump wants a special counsel is because if there's a special counsel in investigating it It would make it more difficult for Biden to shut it down the way the investigation is right now, if when a Democratic age comes in, they can. They can shut it down and given the fact that pretty easily by the way, given the fact that what I was just saying that the mainstream media would wouldn't even touch the story with a 10 FT pole. If they shut the investigation down. If Biden the points is a ghee and gets in there, and the first thing they do is shut the investigation down. Odds are pretty good. You won't hear about it.

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. Well now he's retired and he's done a lot of time in ford at hearings judicial proceedings. That had nothing to do with him. Running the show

He was stepping down in a resignation letter released shortly after he briefed trump about the justice department's review into voter fraud claims in the twenty twenty election. He wrote in the letter. Allegations of fraud. Continue to be pursued earlier. This month bar told the associated press quote to date. We have not seen fraud on a scale that could've affected a different outcome in the election. News of fars resignation comes after it was reported that he knew earlier this year about an investigation into the president elect joe biden's son hunter and his tax affairs. This prompted trump to lash out at bar on twitter over the weekend calling him. A big disappointment but bar has been one of donald trump's staunchest allies this summer. The washington post reported bar personally ordered police. To beat and tear-gas peaceful protesters who gathered near the white house. In order to clear a path for president. Donald trump to walk to nearby saint. John's episcopal church where the president posed for photos holding a bible var denied using tear-gas during an interview on cbs's face the nation and the methods.

Pepper sprays a chemical chemical pepper spray. Your same suzy's pepper balls attorney. General william bar also defended the administration's blaming the anti-fascist movement known as antifa for instigating violence during the protest. Instead of police.

"You I just had a play that just that was exactly my other partner retired federal judge John Gleeson has openly criticized the trump administration's handling of the Michael Flynn case raising concerns that he was selected to improperly bolster Solomon separate to keep the Flynn case alive even though both the government and the defendant wanted to dismiss you and I looked and and went through cook first off this is bizarre is to break this down just as simply as we possibly can what whether it's a bit you know looking at this the judge doesn't say specifically walked the perjury is right it seems as if most legal experts are looking at the same the judge believes that beat that Michael Flynn of retracting his guilty plea basically worry said I'm guilty I'm not saying I'm not guilty amounts to perjury yeah and so he wants to bring in another judge to see if the other judge believes it rises to that level and then allow the Amigas reefs so everyone in the public can join them and every you liberal legal group out there says yes this is perjury in this particular case this is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen in the court system in the federal courts well I mean again if if you look at the order by the judge adult Solomon I came down yesterday essentially bringing in a retired judge that being judge Gleason to help judge Sullivan find if there's any perjury here that rises to you know criminal level what does that tell you well first of all a couple of things and the question I first at is why wouldn't judge judge Solomon have issued a concern at the moment that that event occurred in the process where is it that the defense team or the defended himself committed perjury and when that happened was there not a warning by the judge because if you look at a contempt is the only prosecutorial power that a judge has and Solomon is desperate because he's angry that the department of justice is dismissing this case so now he's at first he'd send up the bat signal to see if anybody else could help anybody else that has a problem with this get in line which is bizarre and then issued the order yesterday to bring a retired judge judge Gleason and to help him find quite possibly something that the court could act on and that would be content and they're not going to go in there it's not going to go anywhere because there is nothing there is they've got zero as you pointed out Gleason who wrote the piece and the opinion piece and in The Washington Post on Monday he didn't argue the merits in that opinion piece no not at all in fact I was all political limit limit let me just read it change because right and you're making the point yeah there's a there's been nothing regular about the department's efforts to dismiss the Flynn case from the record reeks of improper political influence this is from Gleason who's not gonna help judge Sullivan this is an op ed piece in The Washington Post yesterday wasn't two days ago hours after the Monday yeah hours after the career prosecutor abruptly withdrew the department moved to dismiss the indictment indicates filing signed by only an interim U. S. attorney a former aide to Attorney General William Barr Barr had installed in the position months before the department now says it cannot prove its case but Flynn has already admitted his guilt to lying to the FBI and the court accepted the plea the purported reasons for the dismissal clash not only with the department's previous arguments in Flynn's case work sure the court of an important federal interest in pushing Flynn's dishonesty and interest in how it dismisses as insubstantial but now also with argumentative routinely made for years and similar cases not involving defendants close to the president as you notice he doesn't talk about any specific in this case out he doesn't talk about that the differences here that the prosecution in essence has been overruled by a review by the top prosecutors right by the head honcho prosecutor and there've been specifics that bar has laid out no where does Gleason no where in in his op ed piece does he come out and say he says that he's basically making the accusation bars political but if you want to make that case just don't say bars political come out and say don't say bars political because this is somebody who's worked with before well well for god sakes and nobody would ever prosecute anybody because everybody the law can be like radio everybody works with you work with everybody in radio at least once in so that's a dumb argument from Gleason to begin with the argument should be when Flynn says of exculpatory evidence was kept from the judge that's false hello also peel off the the comment of being just an interim it it doesn't matter does do do they have the authority as a prosecutor in that in that case yeah the answer is yes and so let's get back to the merits quit trying to because he's not picking here at trying to take away essentially chip away at the credibility of the prosecutor in this case and also the connection to trump and it's just the good old boy network and they're just doing it to get planned out well the fact of the matter is this is that as the judge you had an opportunity on Monday in your piece in The Washington Post to make your case on the merits and you fail drastically no where did you mention the specifics not as to why legally legally right is wrong and and so that's something that would be the one point you know right there is I. as I as I just brought up is there any substance to the exculpatory evidence right is is he wrong on that was a sculpture was all the exculpatory evidence given well the judge can't make that point right can you make the point the bars wrong when Barr says look whether he lied or not and that's still up in the air based on the fact that we don't have the original three oh two right well you know I go to the the the agents right right where where right exactly where where he light were relied to the agents that you know Hey that's up in the air but it really whether he lied or not doesn't actually matter because we reviewed this case and will review what we realized that it wasn't material we now know with the evidence it does come in we know what call me did we know the department of justice was furious and call me for going around the normal protocol we know that they discussed whether they should or not whether they should make it just a casual conversation in essence get him in a perjury trap or whether we should tell a look this is part of an investigation and and so we just want you know was part of an investigation where he would know what that point okay I can't lie it was the only thing that we said before any judge understands this if a female FBI agent says door husband honey in my fat and he says no she cannot charge him with lying to an FBI agent because nothing is material there isn't enough material to get no I'm sorry I did nothing is material and that's the case here it was a friendly conversation now with the FBI agents who we thought was do we're doing an investigation right these were his peers yes yes these are people high up in the FBI he was his own national security and so does does does judge Gleason did he bring that up and say well no that's bogus because of this nope nope didn't address any of the legal points whatsoever by doing so the perception and it's a legit perception of this judge the retired judge now helping Sullivan to whether this is perjurer not based on this article he wrote two days before shows he's not acting as a judge but as a political hack anybody in law anyone tell me where I'm wrong on this well again I mean you you look at that how he writes that Howard describes the individuals involved get to the case get to the facts good and and and and it goes after the the again the personalities of people involved the only person that's involved that's relevant here in terms of of being a person is the defendant first and foremost but really that's based on the actions of the defendant in one of the claims what's the evidence what's the exculpatory evidence show and what were okay and we're also wears the precedent in terms of reversing out of a guilty plea where is the where's the evidence in terms of exculpatory evidence when you have a new change of of the in power in any department prosecutorial department this case the department of justice where they look at and say no we believe that our our colleagues who were in charge before us did not do their job properly or could not prove the case and we don't believe there is approved for the case and so we're going to dismiss that as this is not the first time this has happened it's not and and Gleason does it Sullivan knows Sullivan's reaching Solomon's desperate I'll find something that is just I mean it when you think about it and I don't think anybody ever because it was one of worst going here and almost insect skews me he's gonna try to make the case that a client who pleaded guilty because of prosecutorial misconduct that do you know that and that's why he's in changes because your proscar misconduct or not in another reasons that because he said yes I'm guilty but now say no I'm not guilty that that's going to be called treason right well good luck with that if that's such the federal president across all this land right I mean this is this is the most bizarre thing I thought we we talked about earlier Margot Cleveland of the federalist dot com said her prediction is the department justice will follow a writ of mandamus and seek reassignment on remand which is go to the higher than him in the federal courts to say look you need to stick to what your job is this isn't your job your job is to judge your job is not to you know if you believe that that that injustice being done what do you make the ruling in your court and you don't go out and you don't you get a Metis briefs from the public at large and and even Gleason has at all yes it's legit these going to the public at large no it's absolutely in no this is this is a this is a criminal case but what she's saying is they're going to go for that that rate that says look you've got to abide by this job and then look for reassignment right they're gonna try to they're going to they just that's what she predicts the department of justice will say look we of this and this isn't the lawyer this is the defense lawyer this is department of justice saying the judges and doing his job right ordered to do his job and we're seeking reassignment we want another judge right and this isn't the defense and I wonder again you when I looked I looked at city Paul's Twitter mmhm having nothing there nothing how will they respond to what is really gonna be an interesting day well because it works certainly to her clients benefit of the department of Jews justice is working to that end if it's true that that's what they're going to.

"Red how do you test for lead all can know that there is light going on your primary when certain things from happening message can you help her I can and I can't that that I can answer the second question which is the only way really to detect lead is to use a device called an XRF which stands for an X. ray fluoroscope which is a very expensive device that that local governments will buy like the York city that shoots a beam of X. rays and the tax vote of the lead the problem is is how do you get access to an inspection of your apartment and while I'll be the first to complain that that the laws in New York City or not fully enforced at least we have prevention laws unfortunately although New York state has the highest number and percentage of older housing stock in the nation and the highest number of lead poisoned children in the nation basically outside of New York City and Rochester there are no prevention laws for for lead poisoning in essence the St still is using what what Cordell called the the miner's Canary mode of checking for led by finding out if the kids are poisoned I would strongly suggest at least contact in the county health department in Rockland and seeing if they can provide some services they generally respond alas unfortunately only when when kids are like poison but they may have some programs to assist us the city the state is funding some some programs in high risk areas of the state to do some proactive prevention work on what Hastert's the Centel thank you so much good luck with that that's at least somewhere where she can go and and that's kind of a shocking thing that you reveal their though Matthew that other than New York City and Rochester that the law is even now with all we know and love the kids of in that portion of the laws are so weak yeah yeah Michael in Manhattan Iran W. NYC hi Michael yeah good good morning I just wanted to call and say that it's clear it's not setting up a rope she was because she got a job with city council member bill Perkins and got Perkins to sponsor this bill in the city of New York yes and when it happened the thing I remember most is Mr Bloomberg because so much in the news now is saying that if this law passed that would bankrupt the real estate industry of New York and of course that didn't happen but it just goes to show how the presidency as of now we still are having this problem to this very day Michael thank you and so Cordell clear let me go back to you and he's right that you got involved with the city councilman at the time bill Perkins after your son had the lead problem from from your apartment and how does your understanding of the history in the Bloomberg administration's role comport with the colors yeah well entrances them and Michael but bring that up because it's on my mind a lot lately never thought this person would run for president but when I remember him vetoing the bill after Matt and so many others that come together we all work so hard twelve years of my life and many many people before me for decades have been fighting for this protection for children and we got a city council did the right thing and they have the mayor knock it down veto it thank god we we kept at it we didn't give up we worked hard and now we had good people and the city council overrode it but you know for it just goes to show you know for an individual to have gone through all of that all of that when we have agencies and leaders of medical to be protecting our children and somebody has to go through all that just to get a lead poisoning bill passed and then now a kick in the face is that we're not even enforcing it and so is this something Matthew that you thing Michael Bloomberg should be held accountable for on the campaign trail because I think you indicated before that when local law was passed in two thousand four that was in his administration he signed it but that he worked to weaken it so that it was only upon the vacancy of an apartment that there needed to be an inspection and remediation for lead as opposed to checking out every apartment well first of all he didn't sign it it was vetoed and and his a veto was overridden by the city council don't know this history yes more ends then the real estate industry brought a lawsuit to block it from going into effect mayor Bloomberg refused to allow the city's own lawyers to represent the city in that lawsuit to defend the law so instead the city council had a higher outside lawyers and we the advocates also when it's in that case to defend the law successfully so yeah his role was was not good he fought against a slow very strongly he and I think it's much stronger and and in fact the advocates negotiate a lot away under the promise that he would veto the bill and then he ended up the doing it anyway hi N. as we finish up W. N. Y. C.'s Christopher worth I read this week that there's a federal probe under way to investigate landlords who take section eight vouchers that this particular group of leverage can be particularly negligent when following lead laws and you talk to a doctor who said we're measuring lead in the wrong units so what do you mean by that and anything else you'd like said wrap this up what we're measuring that in the real well I think it goes back to what Matthew had said which is that we do continue to use kids very much as indicators so when a child tests with an elevated blood lead level that test is then reported to the department of health and then the department of health will start an investigation to find out if there's a lead in the apartment and if they don't find that in the apartment that that investigation expanse other places so first thing in the child has to be said so in in many cases a show for what happened what has to happen first as a child has to have an elevated blood that level where is the does the law was originally designed to prevent exposure in the first place and I think Matthew can speak to that as well yes but but very briefly the federal investigation is actually about of a of a much larger issue that I've been trying to get the city to pay attention to which is the fact that the city has a negligent practice of placing families out of homeless shelters or with other city subsidies into private rental homes without verifying that the landlord has complied first with local law one with the landlord debated the lead on the friction surfaces and we have had case after case after case of families who relying on the city to put them in these homes and a chef at swimming that they're safe and finding out the hard way that it's not safe for the kids get lead poisoned we thank Matthew Fisher a staff lawyer at north Manhattan improvement corporation Cordell clear activist in the fight against lead poisoning and W. N. Y. C.'s Christopher worth senior editor in a narrative unit there's no event tonight Chris I see related to this at the Brooklyn Historical Society six thirty call toxic city you want to tell people that I'm I'll be moderating a panel it's designed around an exhibition at the Brooklyn Historical Society that event starts at six thirty Matthew will be on the panel and Kordell will be on the panel and several other people all three of you who've been I guess on this Cordell thanks so much I know you're on the phone with us thanks so much for your time thank you and Matthew thank you for coming in thank you bye Chris thank you as always thanks Frank and again that event is toxic city lead poisoning and it's silent attack on the vulnerable tonight at six thirty moderated by Christopher worth at the Brooklyn Historical Society Brian Lehrer and W. NYC where it's time for the latest news with Richard hake which of what's happened hi Brian the daily death toll from the corona virus in China topped one hundred for the first time pushing the total above one thousand on mainland China many people remain a home there with around sixty million people under virtual quarantine authorities in Hong Kong evacuated people from an apartment block we're four were found to be infected raising fears of the virus may be spreading through the plumbing federal reserve chairman Jerome Powell says the US economy is healthy with steady growth and unemployment at a half century low he says the virus in China is the principal risk delivering the fed's semi annual monetary report to Congress Powell said this morning that the fed is content with where interest rates are currently the US justice department is suing New Jersey over the state so called sanctuary immigration policies U. S. Attorney General William William Barr announced the loss yesterday against governor Phil Murphy and state AG group we are great wall new Jersey's immigrant trust directed limits when local authorities and turn over undocumented immigrants to federal law enforcement officials W. N. Y. C.'s Matt Katz reports that the DOJ has a good chance to win the case you know when it comes to courts and immigration of the trump administration has done quite well the courts have largely affirmed immigration policy changes that Congress wouldn't otherwise have passed like the so called Muslim band restricting travel from mostly Muslim countries last week the federal government stopped allowing new Yorkers to enroll in some trusted traveler programs over a state law that shields DMV records from federal immigration officials and my PT commissioner Dermot Shea says the new bail reform laws are not at issue in the case of a suspect who shot allegedly two police officers in the Bronx a judge ordered forty five year old Robert Williams held without bail at his arraignment yesterday police say he was arrested once while out on parole over the years here Shea speaking on fox five this morning this particular incident is not tied to Baylor form this is somebody you know it it's maybe a greater issue of that recidivism within the criminal justice system and brakes hard to really predict this one Williams is charged with attempted murder assault criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest New York City police officers reported an increase in the use of stop and frisk last year W. N. Y. C.'s Yasmin Kahn reports officers recorded nearly thirteen thousand five hundred stops in twenty nineteen a more than twenty percent increase from the year before our legal advocates say the numbers confirm what their clients and mostly poured non white neighborhoods were already telling them police stops are on the rise police officials contend the increase represents more accurate reporting the NYPD has been under a federal monitor for it stop and frisk practices since the judge ruled in twenty thirteen at that police mis used the tactic and a racially discriminatory and unlawful way the monitor has flagged repeatedly over the last few years that police officers were failing to record all stops and the trump administration has improved the rating of the portal north bridge between New York and New Jersey making it eligible for key federal funding the upgraded status was released yesterday as part of the president's budget proposal it would allow the century old structure to be rebuilt if approved new Jersey's governor Phil Murphy's praising the measure saying it will help reduce delays for NJ transit riders but a larger project to build a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River remains stalled federal officials gave out a low rating because.

You can read Julian just last week in the op-ed pages of the New York Times Julian. Welcome to one A.. Thanks going to be here. I like millions of Americans an can I phone user. I take this personally. Julian apple in the DOJ appear to be any yet. Another dispute over iphone encryption. Can you tell us what what their current issue really is. I mean I think before. We asked whether apple should Comply with this request. We ought to ask whether they can comply with this request. As far as I know the answer is no They're not asking in this case for a specific concrete thing that apple can do. They're saying Well we just want your help in and breaking into these phones but of course apple itself Has Increasingly attempted to ensure that the they don't have that capability care. What about San Bernardino? Because as we hear about bill bars reaction to Pensacola this goes back to the terror attack in San Bernandino of course force Is this case fundamentally different or is this just a a another asking kind from the Justice Department is Julian suggested well. It's it's ten percent one hundred percent dumber because at least in that case they were asking for a specific thing. which is this thing that apple dubbed Government Os So in this case they're asking for something nonspecific of something that apple can't do which is correct. Justin was saying And they're pretending that apple can do it so it's both. I Dunno disingenuous ingenious and not very smart and so it's not really clear. What what bill bars game is here? I think it's just to to stoke fear to put pressure on them to take it could vantage the fact. The public doesn't quite understand. It's not just you know. Give us the pass code Again what they WANNA do. I think what they want to do is have that ability ready for apple to redesign its system essentially so that all phones will be vulnerable. You know give them a back door. It's called a backdoor key or a backdoor of some sort so that the the Government would be able to enter anybody's iphone if they need to presumably with a warrant but giving you know government this capability is a massive problem. for privacy and. That's why apple is pushing back so strongly. It can't help it any more than any other technical person who knows how to break into these phones which are quite Quite old actually. It's an iphone five in an iphone seven. I think So it's easier to break into lots and lots of security consultants professor disco. It's true that the government is asking iphone to do something that it knows iphone. Actually can't do. Then what's the game here so I think this is a game. That's similar to the game that took place in with respect to the San Bernardino shooting so after after the big kerfuffle between apple the FBI It turned out that In that case it turns out that the FBI was able with the help of What's been reported to be? Sell your bright able to access that phone via vulnerability and There was a subsequent I g report that came out that that basically made clear that up until the point that there was the very public showdown between Apple Apple. FBI in that case the F. B. I hadn't really engaged Got Part of it's of it's of the FBI that that would be able to Think through the possibility of using this kind of vulnerability to provide access in another way. And there's there's a lot of suggestion that this was done in order to force a a public debate about something that DOJ has wanted for a very long time which is legislation that would require companies to design their systems in in a way that would ensure that they comply with these types of requests. And it seems like this very well may be A similar kind of move to due to riot to raise the public debate. And and and get that dialogue going interesting so really when it comes down to it that view says a PR move sophisticated PR or move to push Congress to where bill barring the Justice Department want them to go on this technology. Yes that's very possible unless time around it didn't work. There was a little bit of legislation that had been kind of put out there. It was widely critiqued and I think there's all kinds of reasons to be concerned about legislation along that front. I'm really really for a range of security reasons. In addition to a whole host of other reasons as well we got this call from Brooke in Winston Salem North Carolina who shared thoughts on whether either apple should comply with. DOJ's request here. Such as it is I am opposed to. They're doing it unless law enforcement has a search warrant which has to be granted by a judge and has to specify what it is they're looking for. We are protected by our Constitution acution from unreasonable search and seizures. And I'm glad to know that apple is demanding that long for Smith follow the Constitution. Eric tweeted apple has no obligation to any government or law enforcement agency. If the government wants to get into an iphone they need to hire better hackers and David it says people have a false sense of morality when privacy is seen as a greater need then safety when we're unsafe or dead. Your privacy means nothing Julian Sanchez is is a warrant. Actually at stake here. Is that the issue In in the Pensacola case in what bill bar is asking for. In both cases there is a warrant There is actually been as far as I know. No legal order to apple apart from subpoenas for the data they had God. I'm so there's two separate questions. One is data in their possession about the user. These phones for example things like I cloud backup. People often a backup their phones remotely to Apple Servers. I I'm so. They were subpoenaed for that data and and turned it over. A you know. A search warrant doesn't require an evil. You just search a house but it doesn't enable you to go recruit all the neighbors and force them to help you search So you know the search warrant means they are legally authorized to attempt to get into the phone But even when you have a lawful search warrant that doesn't automatically mean you can conscripts anyone else who has relevant expertise to assist you in that search That's that's never. In the case in the San Bernardino instance. They attempted to use in a in a quick novel way. A very old Piece of legislation called the All writs act Essentially really let's court issues. Secondary orders to enforce other orders on the Eddie was the order apple to comply To help assist with the execution accused of the search warrants In this case there is a search warrant but again today as far as I know there hasn't been a formal legal order to apple. I I think maybe in part because unlike the San Bernardino case they don't really have a concrete requests. The apple must do X. They're sort of saying we wish we could get into this phone and we wish wish apple had a way to make that happen whether they do or not. We'll apple basis. It's pitch to you on privacy. Insecurity saying they will never give you over to the. US government is that legit or you're a marketing ploy.

It was widely critiqued and I think there's all kinds of reasons to be concerned about legislation along that front. I'm really really for a range of security reasons.

"This is one A.. I'm Todd Willik in Washington last month. A Saudi Air Force lieutenant training at a US naval base in Pensacola Florida stood up in his classroom and opened fire. He killed three American airmen and wounded eight others the. US government quickly branded that attack an act of terrorism an investigation was underway. But then attorney. General William Jim Barr went to a microphone last week and said one gigantic. US Company we're standing in the way. We have asked apple for their help. In unlocking the shooter's phones owns so far. Apple has not given any substantive assistance. This situation perfectly illustrates why it is critical that the public be able to get access to digital evidence once it has obtained a court order based on probable cause we call on apple and other technology companies to help us find a solution so that we can better protect the the lives of the American people and prevent future attacks and so here is the question once again. Should the government force apple and other tech companies too deep to decrypt these devices. And what exactly is it that Apple's refusing fusing to do joining me here in the studio to help us understand what's at stake. Here is Professor Jennifer DASCOMB. She's a professor in the Faculty director at the Tech Law. Security you program at American University's Washington College of law professor. I'm glad you're here. Thank you I'm glad to be here. full disclosure by the American University owns the license for w amu the public radio station. It produces one A.. Joining us from Los Angeles is Cara Swisher. She's the editor at large for recode. A website that covers tech. She's also oh an opinion contributor to the New York Times where she covers technology Cara Swisher. It's great to have you very much and NPR in New York City is Julian Sanchez. Senior fellow at the Cato Institute. He studied technology privacy insecurity with a focus on national security and intelligence surveillance. The Cato Institute is a libertarian. Think tank with the focus on American policy. You can read Julian just last week in the op-ed pages of the New York Times Julian. Welcome to one A.. Thanks going to be here. I like millions of Americans an can I phone user. I take this personally. Julian apple in the DOJ appear to be any yet. Another dispute over iphone encryption. Can you tell us what what their current issue really is. I mean I think before. We asked whether apple should Comply with this request. We ought to ask whether they can comply with this request. As far as I know the answer is no They're not asking in this case for a specific concrete thing that apple can do. They're saying Well we just want your help in and breaking into these phones but of course apple itself Has Increasingly attempted to ensure that the they don't have that capability care. What about San Bernardino? Because as we hear about bill bars reaction to Pensacola this goes back to the terror attack in San Bernandino of course force Is this case fundamentally different or is this just a a another asking kind from the Justice Department is Julian suggested well. It's it's ten percent one hundred percent dumber because at least in that case they were asking for a specific thing. which is this thing that apple dubbed Government Os So in this case they're asking for something nonspecific of something that apple can't do which is correct. Justin was saying And they're pretending that apple can do it so it's both. I Dunno disingenuous ingenious and not very smart and so it's not really clear. What what bill bars game is here? I think it's just to to stoke fear to put pressure on them to take it could vantage the fact. The public doesn't quite understand. It's not just you know. Give us the pass code Again what they WANNA do. I think what they want to do is have that ability ready for apple to redesign its system essentially so that all phones will be vulnerable. You know give them a back door. It's called a backdoor key or a backdoor of some sort so that the the Government would be able to enter anybody's iphone if they need to presumably with a warrant but giving you know government this capability is a massive problem. for privacy and. That's why apple is pushing back so strongly. It can't help it any more than any other technical person who knows how to break into these phones which are quite Quite old actually. It's an iphone five in an iphone seven. I think So it's easier to break into lots and lots of security consultants professor disco. It's true that the government is asking iphone to do something that it knows iphone. Actually can't do. Then what's the game here so I think this is a game. That's similar to the game that took place in with respect to the San Bernardino shooting so after after the big kerfuffle between apple the FBI It turned out that In that case it turns out that the FBI was able with the help of What's been reported to be? Sell your bright able to access that phone via vulnerability and There was a subsequent I g report that came out that that basically made clear that up until the point that there was the very public showdown between Apple Apple. FBI in that case the F. B. I hadn't really engaged Got Part of it's of it's of the FBI that that would be able to Think through the possibility of using this kind of vulnerability to provide access in another way. And there's there's a lot of suggestion that this was done in order to force a a public debate about something that DOJ has wanted for a very long time which is legislation that would require companies to design their systems in in a way that would ensure that they comply with these types of requests.

"attorney general william p barr" Discussed on The Report

"A crime would make it hard to and beyond that. It just wouldn't be fair to accuse someone when they aren't able to defend themselves in court. The concerns about the fairness of such a determination would be heightened in the case of a sitting president where a federal prosecutors cuter accusation of a crime. Even in an internal report could carry consequences that extend beyond the realm of criminal justice. Here's Daniel Hemel again. So he says he's bound by the O.. L. C. Opinion and he could just leave that there and then say I I can't indict them but I think he committed obstruction. Instead he makes a move he says I can't indict him and therefore it would be unfair for me to reach a conclusion as to obstruction. That then couldn't be tested in a court of law. Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein knew about the. Yeah well see memo. When he tasked Muller as special counsel so the charge was Was Not not just to write a book report. Nothing in the memo says That you can't reach a conclusion as the ability of the President says that you can indict the president is that and I understand the fairness argument. But Gosh she's the president of the United States. He's got a big bully. Pulpit that he can use is to defend himself. These are allegations that can be ultimately tested in a court of law. We might just have to wait until twenty twenty one for that prosecutors osecutors all the time reached judgments about the ability of a defendant even though they know there will be some time before that matter is definitively resolved by a court but Muller wants to be clear if he had been able to exonerate the president of crimes he would say so and he isn't saying that if we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said sell the evidence since we obtained about the president's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred heard accordingly while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime. It also does not exonerate him. Mary mcchord says has it's not all that difficult to read between the lines of what Muller is saying here there is a lot in here that certainly paints the president in a very very bad light and so to my mind it went to the very very edge of going ahead and saying he committed a crime without going right over over the edge and saying he committed crimes. You can read between the lines. When he says substantial versus SOM- versus being more equivocating? You can Kinda tell from to me. Which wjr instances he and his team felt had the most significant evidence would have supported a prosecution? Muller has collected the evidence an assembled the record but he won't say whether he thinks the President committed crimes. He'll only say that he doesn't think it's clear that the president is innocent. Muller has written his report and he's left it to some other future prosecutor to make the decision but there's a problem that muller it doesn't appear to have seen coming attorney general bill bar good evening. President trump calls the complete and total exoneration today attorney. General William William Barr released his summary of special counsel Robert. Muller to report. Muller doesn't get to just released his report to the public under the regulations. He's got to go through the attorney attorney general and when bar gets the report he doesn't just release the redacted version right away and he doesn't release the executive summaries that Muller wrote himself either instead bar writes his own summary of the document after nearly two years of investigation. Thousands of subpoenas hundreds of warrants and witness interviews. The special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the two thousand thousands sixteen presidential election but did not find that the trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those efforts after finding finding no underlying collusion with Russia. The report recounts ten episodes involving the President and discusses potential legal theories for connecting acting those activities to the elements of an obstruction of fence. So Muller's report in March of course went to bar and Bar summarized Christ it promptly and then over a few weeks redacted it lightly and then released it and summarized it again and so the you know the Muller report largely largely emerged but it emerged in a sort of velvet box of padding prepared by the Attorney General and barred asides that Muller's refusal to make traditional prosecutorial judgment doesn't leave the question open for future prosecutor to decide after the president leaves office instead. He he says that because Muller leaves the Question Open Bar himself as attorney general gets to answer it and according to bar the president didn't commit commit a crime after carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report and in consultation with the office of Legal Counsel and other the department lawyers the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of justice. Offense in other words bar. Read the report the same one you've listened to over the past fourteen episodes and and decided there wasn't anything there to support a claim that the president obstructed justice and so he was declining to prosecute By inserting a declaration decision. Barmaid it far more difficult for future. Prosecutors to contemplate bringing charges members of Congress aren't unhappy about what bar has done here Senator Richard Blumenthal. You ignored in that press conference and in the summary. Marie that Robert Muller found substantial evidence. And it's in the report and we have a chart that shows the element of that crime in ten interference with an ongoing investigation and the obstructive. So I think that your credibility is undermined within the department in this committee and with the American people and when the actual redacted report is finally released least there are big discrepancies between bar summary and what Muller had written I thought bars summary of Muller's report was deeply unfortunate fortunate because it mischaracterized the report. The can't hold them side. By side and see the same thing bars summary I think unfairly characterized molars findings I know that Bob Mueller had in mind that the attorney general would determine and determine publicly that there was insufficient evidence to charge the president and and that they would therefore decline that surprise me first of all. I don't think there's insufficient evidence. Quite the contrary I think the evidence of obstruction of justice and the muller reports overwhelming. If the special counsel makes.

Good evening. If you're just joining us, we have major news we've been waiting for this for nearly two years. It is done special counsel Robert Muller as finished his investigation into Russian election interference and has delivered his final report to attorney general William bar Barr. Says he may send his summary to members of congress as early as this weekend. Well, keep in mind. This report is confidential and it could set the stage for some big political fights over the coming months. CBS news, political consultant, Leonard Steinhorn, a professor says it remains to be seen what bar will provide to congress or to the public the closing of a big chapter. But it's not the end of the book. We don't know. Exactly. What's in it at this moment in time? But the attorney general is expected to summarize it release that summary communicate something we don't know what to congress. And of course, the American public. Wants to see every detail.

We have other news. The president earlier today said ISIS in Syria is one hundred percent eliminated. But Pentagon officials insist there are still pockets of fighting and remote areas also the head of the Syrian democratic forces says heavy fighting is still ongoing. CBS news military analyst, Mike lions tells us what the differing reports might mean. The guy says an ideology will remain for years to come likely generations. It depends on where it can rearm refit itself at it. Look for ungoverned space to do that it won't be able to do that though inside Syria as long as the Kurdish forces the Syrian defence forces as well as the small groups of United States troops are there.

Arizona governor Doug Ducey says this isn't sustainable resources are running thin. People are overwhelmed a we've been able to deal with it so far. But my thought here is we need to plan ahead.
