Bannon pittsburgh that russell wilson is lobbying the team to sign super bowl winning receiver antonio brown wilson's name has come up in trade talks this season Obviously he hasn't been fully pleased with the seattle seahawks. That's no secret max kellerman. What's your reaction to wilson wanting. I'm confused here. I'm confused because abc does not come the same discount. He came on last year. The bucks right. There's a market for him. Now that's going to be more competitive than it was so it's not just like give basically getting abc for free. He wants them to lure a be away from a super bowl winning team with a great quarterback who still doing it and a great defense and everything all the things that russell wilson was complaining. He doesn't have right. Like i'm confused. Because ross i thought this was about your offensive line which through under the bus or not having a defense. Well there's a limited limited resources in the nfl per team. There's a salary cap. So you must rob peter to pay paul for every cent you spend on antonio brown. You can't spend that sent on your offensive line poor on your defense and it's not like you don't have metcalf and lock it. You have a receiving corps so of course what quarterback wouldn't want to throw the ball to. He's one of the greatest. Whoever did it but given the situation. He's lobbying for another receiver.

Bannon, Pardoned by Trump, Now Faces Manhattan New York D.A. Investigation

"There's three others that were charged with bannon by the way who were not pardoned by trump but investigators working under sivan's in his office In the major economic crimes bureau office or in the early stage discussions to see if there's a state case that they can bring against bannon for his actions in the fundraising campaign. That's according to two people people familiar and who spoke on the condition of anonymity now. It's not clear whether the us attorney's office in manhattan which is still handling the case against bannon because it has not yet been formally dismissed if they're assisting the state prosecutor's office in its preliminary investigation. I'm kind of wondering if the us attorney in manhattan went over to sivan's and said hey bro you want this. I got a gift for you. Don't screw it up. Yeah although a judicial sharing order is required for swapping evidence between the agencies and it's not clear if one has been obtained so there's no evidence of one but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist and while these talks among investigators advances officer preliminary. The focus is on whether a state case against bannon covering the same criminal conduct from his federal case would be an option once. A judge formerly dismisses it. Unlike advances attempted prosecution of manafort double jeopardy probably won't apply here given that bannon has not been convicted at the federal level

Trump Grants Clemency to Stephen Bannon and Other Allies Just Before Biden Becomes 46th President

"Hope you are. It is Inauguration Day. The new president has been officially sworn in. Joe Biden is now the President, United States and Kamala Harris is the vice president and we had a chance to hear some remarks from the from the New bank. It's hard to say it, but the new president Joe Biden today. And I thought his remarks were largely good. I was really anxiously waiting to see if he would specifically reference President Trump. He did not, and if he would reference the maybe not even with such specificity but recognized The fact that parent medically 75 or so million people voted the other way. Um, and then just let them know that. Yeah, it's a good time to look at why people were motivated Tol boat in the matter which they did and try to address those Those issues that motivated people that got people to be so involved, But there was it wasn't explicit on it. By the way, we've learned that the president Trump did. Leave the traditional letter in the Oval Office desk for incoming President Biden. President Biden did indicate that it was that it was generous, but would not reveal the contents of the note. Until they dedicate an opportunity to speak with President Trump. Make sure that that was okay. So that zlook promising, I think, But what about a couple of things that we're gonna look a little bit out? Pardons and commutations that President Trump has signed on his way out. I always hate that. I just There's a rare occasion. I think where somebody is really, truly been. Abused by the justice system on and there's an opportunity to, uh to commute or pardon in that case, but I think it's overdone and I never like it. Regardless of who it is. This tradition has happened. I think with every departing president my lifetime But among the people that were partner, there was some question on it. Steve Bannon and Bannon who looks I mean, just a prime official look, appears to have been involved in fraud scheme to separate people from their money. Based on a promise that that contribution would go toward funding the border wall when that wasn't the case. And then, of course, a couple of rappers little rap. I'm sorry, Little little Wayne and Kodak Black. I don't think about those individuals, but I do know that Their cases involved firearms and won the a felon in possession of a firearm. I'd prefer that person did their time. But there's ah some pretty graphic information and describing some of the things that they have done. I think in each of their cases in terms of philanthropic efforts, good causes, and that's that's great. I think that should be encouraged. But You know, I'm very much inclined to support the BA concept of violate the law. You pay the consequences for it, period

Walk us through what Trump is doing this week to get ready for this moment, his final moment in office. We didn't see how much we've talked for weeks now about how he didn't accept the fact that he lost the election to Joe Biden on today. He did not attend Inauguration day to be a part of a symbolic peaceful transfer of power on and obviously the transfer wasn't peaceful because of the insurrection by hundreds of his supporters two weeks ago at the Capitol. And the House impeached him, charging that he incited that insurrection. Trump did spend some of his final hours on pardons and commutations about 70 of each. He commuted the sentences of a bunch of people who had who had drug offenses, more normal people. Someone were serving life sentences, but he also pardoned his former aide, Steve Bannon. Rapper Little Wayne, and you know a raft of other people with political connections and his last 35 minutes before he landed in Florida.

He did go so far today is to wish them well to wish them success on to say that he did think that they be successful. But, you know, we have to point that out that he did this in the context of You know, not showing up for inauguration, and he also never said Joe Biden's name, which seems to be a sign of at least some disrespect.

"bannon" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch

"I share their goals for limited government and so forth. I think the problem with the Steve Bannon view, not not not on substance, but is this, these midterms are the most important election for Donald Trump more important than his reelection. Because if the Democrats take the house, I think impeachment becomes very likely chance a real exactly and and also for Republican agenda going forward. I think there's been a lot of accomplishments, but there's still a lot to do on ObamaCare and so forth and on the economy. So the problem I think with the with some of the Steve Bannon faction is that they regard their fellow Republicans who aren't with them. One hundred percent is more of the enemy than the Democrats, and I think we saw this in Georgia wasn't Steve Bannon in involved in that race there. I mean, it's just it. The governors, the primary, right and look, there's, there's always going to be. Attention between people that have some philosophical view, whether it's on guns on abortion on trade and so forth, and a party whose job is to get their people elected and get the majority. There's always going to be that tension. But Donald Trump's achievements which are considerable could not have been done without the rest of the Republican party. And I don't see how making the party smaller and purer is going to help Donald Trump go forward, look where we're at a razor thin margin in the Senate, right? And and we can see that if we had a few more senators, we might get more done. I think it's just the wrong enemy, they they, they seem to despise their fellow Republicans more than they despise the Democrats who are coming for Donald Trump. Well, the the president said the cokes have bad ideas. And of course a good number of those ideas are have been central to the president's governing success. I'm into the extent you believe that the tax reform has helped the economy, an important. That's a coke idea. The extent you believe that that you have constitutional judges. That's another thing that cokes support. They certainly support the broad deregulation agenda. And I dare say they were there in supporting those ideas before Donald Trump, and not only that I would say we have a majority in the house and Senate in part because of the the cokes contribution. No question. So not only do they not only on the on the same track and a lot of issues we wouldn't have been able to get this thing done. Why you would wanna make an enemy of someone that's with you on seventy five eighty percent of the issues is is beyond me at a time when you're in a life struggle with the Democratic Party Bannon in particular, and I and I, you know, I think the President, Kim, you would know a little bit better than I do. But my sources tell me that Trump. Has listening to ban it again in regards to the strategy for the midterms, and that's why he stressing immigration. That's why he's stressing trade. That's why he's stressing some of his anti so-called globalist point of view on foreign policy and the cokes distort degree on some of those things now, just because our president gets elected, doesn't mean everybody in the party has to essentially decide to keep silent in any disagreements with the president of of the party. And in fact, I think the cokes are creating some space here with their dollars and their network support for candidates who say, you know what, I believe in free trade for a long time and it's still a good idea and I'm going to, I'm going to speak up for it. You were talking about ideas Trump, of course, hailed in his tweet, the ones that he liked the coax which happened to be the ones he's adopted, but you have to remember that the cokes have a very set philosophy of the world. This is a very traditional limited government a little bit more libertarian leading in their in their case, but there's a complete philosophy there, a holistic one that includes not just a more limited government in terms of taxes in deregulation. Not just constitutional judges, but the idea of free markets which involves good trade free trade out there and also immigration functioning and dynamic labor market, which does require a complete in holes immigration program..
