"Maybe you should meet. Caroline birch david rowe david wolfe in hebron illinois and nicole. Bene- kasa in brooklyn. Thank you all for signing up to slate. Plus because the gabfest that's our show for today we are produced by jocelyn. Frank researchers bridget done. Let gabriel roth is editorial director of audio june. Thomas managing producer at least montgomery executive producers. Late podcast follow us on twitter at slate. Gap vest rican tweet chat or to us for. Emily basilan john dickerson. I'm david klotz. We'll talk to you next week. About conundrums hello slate. Plus how are you. I wanna turn you to story that our beloved john dickerson did for sixty minutes. This past weekend on excited. Delirium is amazing and infuriating story about centers on the death of a young man named elijah. Mclean who died in police custody in aurora colorado. After he was subdued from an incident. That never should have happened. Never should've happened. But he was subdued by the police not clear that needed subduing at all with a huge dose of ketamine which eventually killed him. John walk us through. You can talk a little bit about the alleged mclean case. But this this phrase which i'd never heard of and i think maybe you hadn't even heard of when you the story excited delirium sarah coke producer on the peace had been investigating the george floyd murder case Along with christy. Jones associate producer. And they had in the course of that heard the term used because one of the junior officers in the floyd arrest on that on the videotape mentions excited delirium and so they started looking into it and then i and then we got hooked up as a team and so basically the story as we told it was the process of discovery and what we discovered is basically. It is a term that is widely used by the police and paramedics to describe what they say is a syndrome in which the suspects life is threatened by a kind of sudden burst of extreme strength. Wild behavior and that this can be the kind of behavior that happens right before they die. That's what some of the police in the and the paramedics say what the medical community says or a. There's kind of a split but basically the lots of people in the medical world are deeply skeptical of over whether excited delirium even exists as a condition. The criticism is that it's not a discrete condition. It's just people miss identifying underlying conditions. That's one set of debate. And then there's another set that says okay it does exist but it's super super rare and it's been over diagnosed in the field to to justify two kinds of things one over Restraint police or what. Some people call police abuse. And then the this use of campaign which is a super powerful sedative. That's given in hospitals in under very tightly monitored conditions because it can lead to cardiac arrest in all kinds of other complications. So you can imagine how troublesome it could be on a curb or you know in. Somebody's front yard after an encounter with police. There's obviously also that claim from its skeptics that excited delirium is a post talk rationalization for police abused and death in custody of young black men and so it has all of these different complexities and so that's the story. We told talking to people who have the mother of one person who'd been given if you misdiagnose it and miss the underlying condition you can end up giving ketamine to somebody. Who's just having a diabetic shock. Which is the wrong thing to give them. And that was the case of one of the people we talked to and then in an emt. We talked to who had been asked to us. Basically ketamine as a way to to calm a a patient who could actually just be talked down from his wild behavior. I just thought this was such an excellent smart hard hitting piece because excited delirium. I mean they're all the things you said and every step of it is chilling so you watch the election mclean footage. You can see that. Like he is agitated because police are stopping him and in his view i think clearly threatening him in a way that he doesn't understand and i don't as the mother of son's like how you listen to that footage and you don't identify with it and just feel deep fear for this kid you know it's chilling and we couldn't get it in the piece but i talked to his mother shannon mclean and and she says that she listened to the audiotapes and looks at the video because it's the Even as chilling and as awful as it is it's the closest she can come to her son. So can you imagine looking to that for comfort. No that's horrifying that's really upsetting just to continue the upsetting notion. It's like this excited delirium quote diagnosis. It then becomes a way of blaming the victim for their own demise. Essentially once you've given them this incredibly powerful ketamine which they never should have received in the first place and then you interview the prosecutor in aurora. Who comes off as like incredibly defensive scarily so the police in their conduct and the fact that excited delirium is cited in the cause of death becomes a reason not to press charges against the police. Because suddenly you don't have clear evidence of homicide because you literally are blaming the person for their own death that constellation and then the sort of whistleblower footage you have of this emt who is getting criticized and pummeled by his supervisors not going along with giving ketamine in a circumstance like does it was all just really really upsetting. Yeah his when. I asked him you know. Did they think you're making them less safe. Basically the police were saying why are you. Why are you holding is calm. Someone down in some way that doesn't involve giving them hugely scary drug injection. Yeah because you're making our lives are at risk Another thing i heard from was that interested me was that was just a snippet from our slate plus conversation.

"Four four four ninety four sixty john. What is your chatter. Chatter is yet another excellent. Tom edsall piece in the new york times. So good national myself. Yesterday is this. What are we talking about the same about the new sectarianism. Yep yeah i mean. Tom edsall both both a general specific. I the specifics of this piece are wise. And smart and interesting to me because they they vault over the trump moment which i tried to do in my book and keep trying to do which is to not identify. Everything is the idiosyncratic element of his presidency. But to look at the bigger longer trends and this one looks at the trends and sectarianism. In what's gonna what's gonna last and what we still face a huge challenge and to me and what's so interesting about it. Of course is that. Is that if you have sectarianism. That is so strong that even the results of an election in which joe biden gets eight million more votes and three hundred six electoral votes and millions of people can think after unanimity on the question of whether there was fraud they can still think that there was fraud because facts reason and tradition or out the window. Then you lose the building blocks of any common understanding that becomes. What's your that. Are the precondition for even the smallest faintest progress. So that's kind dark but it's the case anyway so edsel typically does goes through the political science behind all of this and and it's a great piece and also just more broadly edsels writing and work and thinking is always trying to look at the bigger broader forces and why they're important and and so he's always great to to read. And so that got you depressed. I would also like to recommend a little documentary from the new yorker and it's called the workshop of a classic toy inventor eddie's world it's about this guy adolf eddy goldfarb who invi- invented the chattering teeth along with seven hundred and ninety nine other toys. He was a he was in the navy. And it's just about his life. His outlook his optimism and has very cool drawings of early toys. So that's a very uplifting and human peace and holiday appropriate. Emily what is your chattering teeth. My chattering is a story coming out of los angeles so l. a. elected george goan as destr- attorney in november who is already making progressive changes like getting rid of asking for bail in some cases and looking back at thousands of excessive sentences related to three strikes. What's happening is staffed prosecutors. Starting to already try to sabotage these efforts putting forth you know anonymous public statements about how everybody is united against gas cone and the line and this memo we will still be here in twenty twenty four. Meaning we're gonna outlast the sky. He thinks he's going to make change. But forget it. And this is a pattern. We've seen over and over again when people making progressive promises. Get elected district attorney. It's going to be really interesting to see it. Play out in la because it's such a huge city so there's just at stake and if you are interested in this story or really any story about politics criminal justice you should be following tangible at sanyal on twitter. Which is the twitter of daniel and acadian.

I tried our wine sponsors wine. Loop green napa blend. It's totally delicious. And so while. I have an early morning sip of that. I will be chattering about a really amazing and talk heartbreaking story in new york times and will you have some incredible colleagues over there. Assam akhmed has a story about a woman named. Miriam rodriguez who is a mother in town. Caller city small city called san fernando mexico whose daughter was kidnapped and killed and she then she was understandably completely blown apart by this and and lost lost. Everything lost the kind of central animating force of her life and she devoted the next several years to simply tracking down every single person. Who'd been involved in her daughter's abduction and murder finding them where the police wouldn't and getting them arrested disguises. You know tracking people for weeks and weeks and weeks insinuating herself and One point somebody at gunpoint waiting for the police to come and actually make the arrest and then of course the the day knows it. Only she herself was of course then murdered by those that she saw. It is a chilling astonishing terrible awful story. And actually there's a whole other separate story of action and death within it of a whole other family and it's just about what happens. What it is to live in a city controlled by criminal gangs by murderers murderers criminal. Gangs who are. Don't care about the value of human life of those. They don't need or their enemies. It's beyond awful and just astonishing listeners. You tweet chatter to us at slate. Gabfest who've lost like couple hours this week thanks. You're destroying city cast.

It's so good another actually slipped somewhat grim one though that i picked its at green neck. And it's about how the west it's about the western monarch butterfly there too. Big classes of monarch butterflies somewhere more south and then more north main pool is the eastern monarch butterfly which over winters in mexico and then comes and spent summers up. North in the united states and that population is okay but the western monarch butterfly population is apparently basically gone and this account in annual count. That's done in california. Which historically i mean used to find millions and millions of butterflies and a few years ago it was finding several hundred thousand and this year at found only two thousand monarchs.

"Will bring and he does bring a ton of energy and smarts and charisma will be directed centrally rather than to the left where the actual young energy of the democratic party as well. Yeah i would like to see both. I would like to see three younger people in important roles and i will also note that i mean. I'm all for people to judge being in the cabinet. I have a problem with that. But it's really funny to me that the old people picked the one young person who only old people or mostly old people like right. I mean the rap on the judge during the campaign was that like he was young but the youth were like so. I find that kinda funny. And i think that it shows why you're right that it shouldn't just be him. Can i just remind people who everybody knows. This may be but The reason it's interesting to me that you have this fight of young versus old progresses versus institutionalists or more moderates is that the energy for reform and energy for change usually comes from the wings and from youth this is more again than coalition management. This is what what many people believes makes more equitable laws and is a part of american. Progress is the is the push that comes from the new generation. And i should also note. We don't know yet. Who biden's pick for attorney. General is and rate now. There is a real to make sure. That person has a strong civil rights. Lawyer named emily.

"Jeffrey rosen suggests that he's like a very conservative by the book guy and he's just gonna like babysit the justice department until the biden folk. Show up now. I saying that a little worried because people also thought that bar was going to be the grownup in the room not me but other people and they proved to be wrong. So we'll see. But i wanna talk a little bit about the justice department more. Broadly you know what is bar accomplished. Well he was part of the incredibly successful project of putting very conservative. People on the judiciary like hundreds of them now serves check. He has moved the department toward protecting what he sees is fundamental religious freedoms for example by backing the churches and other religious organizations that have been filing lawsuits against coronavirus related restrictions. Check i think he has brought in Voting rights or other civil rights matters actions on behalf of white people arguing for a reverse discrimination. He has threatened to sue for example yell university over its affirmative action policies. Check and also. There's this big antitrust enforcement action now happening against facebook which has much more bipartisan support than the other moves. I just named but you forgot one. You forgot what forgot. Tell me killing spree executing fifteen people in the presidency including like a rush to get people executed in the final days of it and so glad that you remember that. That is a really sobering. Part of his legacy. Which which just you know i. It is ludicrous to talk about anyone's religious beliefs and how they connect to their how they live their life. Bars like you know has been very devout catholic and is outspoken about his his catholicism. When it comes to abortion and yet you know to be to preside over this these murders of people. Is you know that's something. Yeah so you've seen him be a very effective at a number of Really important ways and now he's getting the hell out of dodge just in case the whole thing just like really gets embarrassing and cracks up in the last month. And you know trump starts like pardons like confetti. Emily kelso we should note that. That bar changed special counsel john durham's classification right so that he is protected to end allowed to continue his investigation under the biden presidency. Right now he can only be removed from For cause and it will be like a big political hoopla. If biden tries to do that so yes that is also important or before we end this topic. Just got a note that this is the week. The electoral college Finalized biden's victory called him president-elect. And what. I wonder is for those lawmakers like mcconnell did they think declaring biden president-elect because they electro college would would do what exactly because what we learned in the previous several weeks and what we see from. The president's continued behavior. Is emily mentioned. Is that the the facts and process and tradition and norms. Don't matter to this claim of a of a stolen election. So what did they think what happened. Did they think a page would really chain turned or do you guys actually see something that did change and was different in terms of the conditions that prevailed in the several weeks beforehand. Well i think something changed because mitch mcconnell's the most powerful person in american politics. Besides the president his declaration just because of who he is carries an institutional wait in the senate and he can control to a certain extent. What happens in the senate and and when he makes the determination that there's not going to monkey business and shenanigans and we're not going to waste a lot of time and embarrass ourselves enforce people to pick a side and a vote That will will force them to choose force them to look bad before trump supporters. That's important. I don't think he did it out of any deep love of country or deep belief in the institutions. But it's it is important. That mitch mcconnell said something i mean. Doesn't it seem like he was worried about the impact on the georgia senate runoffs and also a big divisive fight in his own caucus on january six if there was pressure to get out there and vote for congress rejecting the electors and that divided the republican party like the republicans in the house divided almost evenly over joining that completely bogus texas lawsuit challenging the election results. And if you saw that kind of division you. Have you know like trump's slash loyalists giving the other people who won't join in a hard time and they're like one hundred people on the other side that seems bad for the republican rate support for the best comes from transfer wise. Do you ever send money abroad. If you do try transfer wise. They said you can never have something. That's cheap fast and reliable usually have to settle for one or two of those things but with transfer wise. You get all three when you send money internationally with transfer wise. It's cheap because unlike banks transfer wise never hides an extra fee in the exchange rate. You always get the real rate when you send money to eighty countries.

"Hilarious separation of the attorney general and his president has happened in the last month of the trump presidency. Emily how did we get to a point. Where this attorney. General who has bent and torched and damage so much that doj people hold sacred or thought was sacred. Get he is not enough. He is not enough for the president. I have a theory. I'm excited that. I came up with this theory. Could be wrong but i'm gonna come on. Man theory is that bill barr and donald trump were always using each other. It was a mutual transaction and bill barr was getting a lot out of the relationship. He is older. He got this second act. As attorney general he was totally unlikely. Kind of dark horse candidate. Who came in from the side corner came in from the whatever who came in from the back of the line because he played trump's desire to see the muller investigation as compromised illegitimate so he was down for a lot of the politicization of the justice department. He was down for you. Know changing general. Flynn's guilty plea. He was down for potentially messing around with roger stone's conviction but he was not joan for this last bananas. Act of pardoning like i don't know who donald trump himself or rudy giuliani. Because there's nothing in it for bar at this point and i think also these bananas allegations of voter fraud which trump continues to make up to the moment that our show is taping. Even though the electoral college has voted. And what is it. Joe biden said eighty judges have ruled against him. Something like that. It's just embarrassing. And i think with a few weeks left to go and as much of his agenda rolled out he was going to get bill. Barr saying okay this last piece of my legacy no. I'm going to hold onto some kind of shred of dignity here. It's no longer worth it to me. Drawn john pose like the thinker. I was considering whether it makes. Eddie said no no. No that seems plausible. I think also there was when he i think. The president was reportedly according to several different accounts unhappy with the attorney general when he said there was no evidence of voter fraud in the work that they'd done and the president was unhappy that he hadn't launched investigations into hundred biden and other people that the president considers his enemies so then the president got mad. Bar hadn't publicized the fact that there wasn't investigation into hunter biden right launch them. He had launched them but he hadn't. He refused to publicize broken. The justice department's own previous rules by publicizing them. Right which bush. Emily as you're evaluating the bar the bar on bar. Where do you put that. The fact that he didn't let slip that there was an invite that the investigation two hundred biden was just as far along as it was during the election period. Yeah i surprised by this. This and this sort of fizzling out at least thus. Far of the durham investigation. Which is of course like the probe into the probers right the investigation of the fbi and the folks who are investigating the russia potential. What's word collaboration. No thank you collusion. I was surprised by all of that. Because i think that that use of the justice department could have affected the election. And i did not think. The bar had scruples about that because he was so contemptuous of the russia investigation and of the notion that you would hold the president accountable for his actions including This sort of quid. Pro quo called that ukrainian president but that was a dog that didn't bark in the election. I don't know whether it's because the other prosecutors who are involved in it would not stand for being used in that fashion or if bar had some kind of principled response to what they were doing. I sorta think it was the former not the latter. I don't know. And i do think it's a it's it's the one thing about bill barr that surprised me but i actually think there's a sort of semi mike theme in this is actually think had he announced hunter biden probe derm piece. I don't sure about but had he announced one hunter biden probe in october. It would have been seen as so glaringly grotesquely cynical and that it would have. It wouldn't have had the impact that it was supposed to have. Actually we reached a point in the election where any action that the administration took a net way would have been would have not had. It would have been counterproductive. Wouldn't have had the impact. It would sell lead bar himself in ways that he was not interested in selling himself and i also feel. That's the same thing with the voter fraud. Is that like why would bar. Doesn't you know he. He knows the writing on the wall. Why would he embarrassed himself with something. That was so clearly wrong and was not gonna not going to get what he wanted. It was going to be counter productive to what he wanted to make him look worse for history so i think he gets to. I think he recognized. It wasn't going to help us 'cause and therefore he let it go. I mean that makes sense except was the writing on the wall. I mean it was a close election and also bar changed the rules allowing for investigations much closer to election and some discussion of them and bar issued a memo authorizing voter fraud investigations on november ninth after the election. Which at the time seemed ominous. Because that's when all these allegations and lawsuits were starting to bubble up so it just seemed like bar was making moves in the direction that trump wanted that was more corrupt and more glaringly cynical and then he didn't follow through and maybe he was pacifying trump and knew that if he did something that would allow him to stay. I know john a question for you about all of this about the whole grand. Sweep that you in your put on your presidential scholar hat do you have. That is that nearby he has. He has let me go get that let me had the batteries So trump is. It's i wouldn't say it's quite at the level of a purge for one thing bar seems to have kicked himself out. It didn't seem to have been trump demanded that he leave but he did boot. Defense secretary esper- he seems to want to get rid of cia director hassle in the final days. There are these kind of moves to install various toadies in in high level jobs throughout the government in the final days. What a is there any precedent for this and be. What can you accomplish by doing that in the last month of administration. That's what puzzles me. Well i think that In terms of precedent. I don't i can't think of anything where there was. Certainly not this feeling wholesale firings beforehand. Because what's the point now in the in the trump case the point is declassification. So he's trying to get declassified information that will he thinks exculpate him and or and. I don't know the specifics of this. But you could imagine this. And i'd like emily's emily's take on the new guy who's gonna takeover for bar and whether the at least in the in the papers it sounds like he's you know seems like a different kind of fellow than a steam. His name's rosen. Jeff is different than than your previous than our and sessions and so anyway you could imagine using the the in their last minute to continue to raise questions release information. senator ron. johnson of wisconsin held a Senate hearing looking into election irregularities which was a bit of a circus and it didn't reveal anything really but it was a circus in a platform for the president's worldview and we've seen how powerful in the forty one days or so however many was between the election and declaring joe biden the president-elect elect we saw how much and how powerful what the president could do and all of his allies wanted to curry favor with his wing of the party or maybe not his wing of the party just his party. You know how powerful that was. So he can use the institutions to continue that narrative. I don't think jeffrey rosen. There's nothing in his record that suggests he's going to be up for the kind of circus performance right like it's one thing to hold a senate hearing that's like a staged way of getting behind president trump. It's another thing to go in and start prosecuting people for stuff. They didn't do everything i've read about..

"Who kinda has the poll to be able to do. The agency process sister has twenty two hundred employees the national security agency which is one of seventeen different intelligence agencies in the united states has forty thousand just by itself so we put all of our efforts behind the offensive stuff of reading the email of the chinese communist party of blowing up iranian centrifuges. We don't think about the defensive side and when you run the world's largest most technologically sophisticated economy it turns at your also the biggest target in the world for this kind of stuff so one. We just got to rebalance at another thing we've got to do is we've got to start to bring some of this expertise at the high level. So the the truth is that washington. Dc has for very long time treated cybersecurity is something that's like best done by lawyers and public policy generalists which is fine like there's a lot of policy and legal people who have important things to contribute here but you would never have like about practice attorney be the surgeon general of the united states and that is effectively how we treat all of our cyber positions in the united states but in the third thing really missing him for missing somebody to kind of do the post mortem and help us explain what went wrong so when a plane crashes. We have the national transportation safety board. Ntsb that is very respected. That they don't do all the work themselves. But they pulled together the work of all the different Engineers and scientists and forensic examiners and then they say this is what went wrong. This is the bolt that failed on the plane. All the way up to the organizational decisions inside the airline. That allowed that bolt to fail. Nobody does that for cyber. And as a result we end up not learning and we ended up not even understanding most of the stuff that happened so those eighteen thousand organizations that might have been hit. It's completely unclear. How many of them will actually ever hear were breached. Because there's no responsibility for most companies to do a disclosure in less. The data includes personal data credit card numbers and emails and stuff. That's not care about your credit card number. They don't care about your social security number. What they want our national security secrets. And there's there's not a mechanism that requires companies report that so we need to change our laws that it's not about breach bad about intrusion that if you've been broken into you have to clear it we're going to have to probably give company civil liability protections so that they are they want to be responsible and they wanna talk publicly and they don't spend seven years with class action attorneys going after them and we're going to need a government agency probably under cisa that can go and investigate and what would be nice. It's six months from now. If we had five hundred page report of all the things that what ron i inside of solar winds and then in all these other companies but right now that's not going to happen and as a result. We're not going to learn anything so alex if you could just scare us a little bit more in a couple of months or couple of weeks or even six months maybe what stories will there be where the second paragraph says. This is undoubtedly the result of the russian hack of solar winds so the kinds of headlines. We will see will be discussions of breaches other companies where it is a mystery of how they initially broke in and that the assumption will be well. These folks had solar winds attached. This is actually going to be. It's going to be like with the vaccine issues where people are gonna get sick and they had a vaccine and you don't know if it's linked or not because people just get sick anyway it's gonna be the same thing for years because you're talking about almost every fortune. Five hundred company was hit here so whenever any of them has a briefed by the russians. The initial question is going to be well. We had solar winds installed six months ago. Could this possibly be related. What about dod and like our government secrets. Yes and so so to be clear. There's no evidence that this was effective on classified network so the way the command control works here is it only can work on. Networks are connected to the internet to to jump an air gap to jump out of a network that is physically separated from the internet would need a different kind of mechanism that nobody has found in this case. Yes i think what we could see is. Russia stole designs from the defense industrial base. Rocket company finds that all of their data had been accessed on their hypersonic testing. What we've seen. The chinese do is go and grab large amounts of unclassified government data and then combine all of it to find america spies and china rights if you the opium s eighty sixes plus the anthem data. Which tells you everybody who got healthcare insurance from the cia plus the sabre system which is all of the travel plus the starwood if everybody stayed in every hotel around the world when you put those together it's a pretty good way to find spies that the united states is sent out and the things that i've heard that that chinese had been very good at rounding up networks of people we have either planted or turned within the people's republic of china. So what we might sees a bunch of stories about you might not even see the stories but one of the things that might happen is we might have people who are spying on behalf of the united states and russia. Something bad happens to them and it's never figured out why and it's because some data that pointed to them from an unclassified network was able to be pulled out. It's very hard to predict. But they had access to everything right into really. The question is is how aggressive were they during that time for march to december. How many people did they put on doing. The second phase here because the first phase they got lots of leverage they got an eighteen thousand organizations with one hack that the second part's much more human intensive when you then have to get on the keyboard and you have to go after a specific organization so the question is just how many times they did that and right now. We don't really have good data to demonstrate whether it was one hundred organizations or thousand. So i think there's a kind of symmetry question here which is is the proper response or is it is it. Is it possible response for us to.

He gone what terrible things can happen in the thirty four thirty three or so days left without him. Attorney general. not that there weren't terrible things happening with him as attorney general but whatever then the battle over joe biden's cabinet. Everyone is unhappy about it which must mean. It's a great cabinet. I guess plus we will have cocktail chatter. We are joined. First segment by alex stamos. Who's the director of the stanford internet observatory in a previous life. He was also the chief security officer. Facebook there are reports this week. Alex that some clever and highly resourced people have broken into basically well. Who knows what everything. Certainly some of the most secure aspects of the american government maybe corporations. We are only beginning to understand what was compromised. What may have been taken so insofar as you. You're up to speed on this. What what has happened however we burgled and what what do we know about what is going on right now. Sure first off. Thanks for having me a big fan of the gab fest. I'm glad to be here. Glad you guys are covering this so boots like to tell a little bit of the story. we've got to think about the different groups in russia right. so there's three main intelligence agencies in russia the jury was the one that we've often talked about Because they were behind the dnc hack. The gianbattista. Hack a lot of election issues there. The military intelligence folks that are like a sledgehammer right they are they will hit you in the face very in his never very subtle. There's the fsb who does internal security and they're very scary people. And they have various hacking groups have different levels of skill. And then there's the svr the we are the people that i'm sure you'll watch the americans as political fans. So that's the she are right. Yeah the part of the kgb that did overseas intelligence the first directorate became the svr they if the jeers a sledgehammer the svr's scalpels. They have always had the best hackers of all the russian intelligence agencies and they are the people behind this and they pulled off what looks to be one of the most impressive intelligence-gathering in the history of the world. I think when this is over so what happened was sometime in march the sp was able to break into a company that makes some really critical it software. It's called solar winds. Probably none of you ever heard of it. Most consumers have never heard of it. But it's very popular piece of software among it professionals. It's used by big companies to manage network devices right so if you run a big company you've got thousands of network devices. You need to manage them. You install the software that means the software is installed in place. That is very very privileged. Has lots of power in the network because it can talk to all these different devices and it has to be able to log into all these devices and so the we are broke into this one company solar wins and then they put a back door into it their software. That was then intentionally downloaded it. Looks like by about eighteen thousand customers so eighteen thousand customers went updated software and in doing so brought this. Svr backdoor into their network. It then called out very subtly and said here. I am and so the s. We are at that point as these people installed somewhere in moscow. There is a computer screen that a shopping list of now all of the organizations across the world that they could break into and then they picked very carefully which organizations that shopping list they cared a lot about and human beings would go back and on the keyboard go in control the computer inside of those organizations and then go spread out and put more and more malware and go find information in exfiltrated. This was only caught because one of the companies they picked is going to be fireeye which is a professional security company. They caught it reverse engineered it figured it out and then told everybody else. It's a fireeye is doing their own internal investigation but now what we're dealing with is the fact that there are eighteen thousand companies during which the svr could've waltzed in this door anytime. between march and december. We have no idea how many have been hit right now. What we know for sure is the department of defense the department of homeland security the treasury department part of the commerce department and a variety of other private companies. Definitely they utilize the back door but the kind of crazy. This is ongoing right now because while that initial back door has been closed. Microsoft work together with fireeye. They took over that control channel. They took over the system that allowed the. Start control it. So they can't get in that door anymore if they walked through any time between march and december they could have planted much more subtle ways to get back in in some of those things might not wake up for months or years. I mean so. The metaphor i used was like this is like the iron harvest where every year french farmers still find bombs yonne belgian and german farmers of bombs from world war one and world war. Two it's going to be the same thing for years that we're gonna be fine dean exploits that were planted in these networks by the sp are for a very long period of time because they had a pretty significant amount of time during which they could go into a huge number of organizations. That are very critical. So that's completely terrifying and disturbing. And what the hell do we do now like. That just sounds like almost insoluble colossal problem. And why is it. Fireeye that is figuring this out and not our government. Well that is. That is a interesting question. I mean there's a lot of things we've gotta do. We have to respond specifically to this issue. That's gonna be incredibly hard because there's not eighteen thousand teams on the planet that can go hunt for hackers at the quality of that. We're talking about here and so how we do that is just going to be spectacularly difficult on the government side. There's a bunch of things that we've got to think about. I wrote a post op. Ed i had three initial things. They're the overall thrust. I is that we have to treat defense. As importantly as offense intelligence gathering right traditionally the us government has never really centralized. It's defensive work that the responsibility of defending both government computers and the the systems are private. Companies has been smeared across a bunch of different organizations. That changed a bit two years ago when they created cisa under the chest the cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. They love security so much. Put the the worded twice and so cisa centralized a lot of this responsibility. The first director of that. Chris crabs he did a really good job ability that up and was fired by donald trump. For telling the truth in fact. I think at this point has no more political appointees your career civil servants who are doing their best. But there's nobody up top..

"That's it because if you don't put your foot down if you don't fight back forcefully at every turn but especially early you end up in this situation. If for example iran-contra had been dealt with bill bar hadn't been around then to help people get off if these Republican criminal administrations had been put in check had been held accountable. Had been publicly. Shamed had not just been reappearing endlessly on Sunday. Shows or on news programs you know and had been treated as the Anti Democratic corrupt people that they are. We not be in this situation. If people had reacted to trump announcing his campaign by proclaiming Mexicans to be rapists and murderers by banning him from TV or just saying we're not part of that. We think that that's dangerous and horrible and is actually hurting people. Were not going to go along with us. That's what NBC initially did by the way they cancelled the apprentice over that and then within years you find them you know bowing down to him. That's what would happen. I mean I mean even thinking about Roger Stone how when everyone was so ecstatic thinking he was going to go to jail and he just immediately was on CNN. And all these networks palling around with the media that he pretends is his enemy but his actually his best friend and being legitimised by them so there needs to be a whole change in this entire system in you know who people uphold what they accept you know. I always encourage people to strike out on their own to not necessarily try to fit in to this system which is corrupted from within. But build your own media. Express yourself build your own projects. Because my God I it's just it's crowded and grotesque. It requires conformity at a level that no one should have to bear speaking of actually. This is a pretty decent segue into Bloomberg. Did you have anything you wanted to add on bar before starting to that speaking of Bar? Let's now talk about. Bloomberg's seamless segue. Which is absolutely true as Sarah's going explain well speaking of like gross institutionalists like people who are legitimized for horrible behavior over many years of time without facing reprecussions so we are against Bloomberg on guests at nation. I'm just GONNA come out and say that. Bloomberg is an incredible danger to democracy in my view. He is the most dangerous of the Democratic candidates. And I'm actually including Tulsi Gabbard in that in part because she just. I don't think she has a chance to actually win but his candidacy is an insult to voters. We should not have to choose between a kleptocrat meaning trump and a plutocrats meaning Bloomberg. Both of whom are racists both of whom have enacted vicious policies against children. Who AREN'T WHITE? Both of whom have been accused of sexual harassment by dozens of women both of whom seek to decimate basic services that benefit ordinary people both of defend dictatorships like Russia and China and both of whom are connected to Jeffrey Epstein Gylain Maxwell and their pedophile trafficking operation. I would just like one president who is not in a fucking photo with Jillian Maxwell or Epstein just one also like trump Bloomberg is someone who switches parties when it is politically expedient and now he is running as a Republican in Democrats clothing. We will never vote for trump. Obviously but the old mantra of vote blue no matter who does not apply to Bloomberg you cannot expect people to vote for someone who said this quote Amir five years ago and so. Here's what Bloomberg said about his notorious. Stop and Frisk Policy. This was brought up by Benjamin Dixon. So thank you for that. Thank you for all the things people are bringing back into the public eye so Bloomberg says ninety five percent of murders murderers and murder victims fit one. Mo You can just take a description xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities. Sixteen to twenty five. That's true in New York. That's true in virtually every city and that's where the real crime is so. This is not just factually wrong but it is disgusting. It is cruel. It is racist. No one should abide this or be asked to abide this so Bloomberg better than trump. Sure because nearly everyone is because trump is a sociopath within nuke fetish at the center of a Transnational Crime Syndicate but Bloomberg's election would destroy. Us Democracy in its own way. He has authoritarian tendencies. He is smarter slicker than trump and he seeks to build a technocracy. Probably along the lines of what we've been seeing in China. It is a frightening prospect. And so what everyone needs to do is vote in the primary and make sure that we do not have a Bloomberg versus trump election and finally last thing people should be vetting Bloomberg far more rigorously than they are. You may recall. Trump's spent his life in the public eye yet. The extent of his criminality still came as a shock to most Americans that is decades of criminality. Bloomberg was mayor when the Republican Mafia continued the money laundering operations. It had begun under Giuliani in the one thousand. Nine hundred ninety s under Bloomberg New York became not only a city for the wealthy alea before elite criminals. Bloomberg is the last person you want in charge of holding the trump administration accountable for in a world where white collar crime has merged with organized crime. He is part of that circle. Aim The further ado a very special guest on this week's episode an old friend of mine. While Sarah's he is a reporter that covered the Democratic primary in twenty sixteen for the US presidential election. And he's covering it again this year where he's on his way to. South Carolina and early voting states in this primary also happens to be an expert on the countries of Ukraine and Georgia where countries as both worries lived and an expert in aggression towards countries as well as foreign policy regards those states welcome senior reporter for Dot Com Terrell Germain Star. Hey I'm so happy to be here. This is like always listen Before now like actual guests and we have to save. Terrell happens to be a patriotic supporter of. That's not why he's on this show. Bloomberg my way on so well said well said well. Thank you for coming on. We really appreciate it. And so before we were starting to talk about Bloomberg. And you're a New Yorker. You have experienced living under his tyrannical rule. You also are an expert in kleptocracy in Russia's regime you've been following trump and covering elections for years. What are your thoughts on his candidacy? Well to tell you that one thing that we have to remember when we were discussing. Bloomberg is we have to remind ourselves that too often American reporters just the American media. Landscape covers America from the Lens of exceptionalism meaning that we are not like Russia. We are not like Ukraine. We are not like those other countries where we use these political science terms plutocracy kleptocracy aggressor or regime. But when you look at Bloomberg and what. He's done in particularly particularly the way in which he bought himself into his third term. It very much reflects of an oligarch somebody who uses their political power in order to exact the type of result that they seek now was different between a Ukrainian. Oligarch yours say the blooms are the American version of Bloomberg's oligarchy is that the modes are which they deploy. Their THEIR MEMPHIS is very different. So I'll never forget when I was in Ukraine and I was talking with a corporate lawyer and they were explained to me how the Ukrainian oligarchy works in the short version to joke is dead so Dimitri and Ukraine and there's a dmitry in and Moscow and so basically they're investigating corruption through the internal affairs offices of a company and so- Dmitri and you in Kiev somebody goes to a mysterious man says Dimitri is everything. Okay we understand that you've been asking some questions. Do you need assistance from us? And no same things happens in a Moscow. Scenario takes place now in Moscow. The very next day Dmitry car blows up and Ukraine. The same mysterious guy comes again the next day and then a week later. Dmitri's car blows up. The same scenario happens in which the mysterious man go to Mitri at the at the internal affairs and the mysterious man says. I heard that your car blew up. Is Everything okay? Do need any help. We can look into it for you and Moscow. Dmitry Says No. I don't need your help. The next day they kill him and Ukraine the next day the mysterious man comes and says I heard Dmitri. Do any help is everything. Okay and Imagery Says No. Now what happens in Ukraine? Is that the mysterious man comes for another few weeks and then finally kill the more of this joke is that in Ukraine and in Russia the oligarchs both kill you but Ukraine's nicer. No just give you more time to come to your senses. Sounds about right now. It sounds I heard? I'm like Oh this is just as just so more. But Yeah I mean the joke is that Ukrainians were just nicer but in reality. I'm saying that to say that Bloomberg's not killing anybody okay. He's he's not gonNA kill you but he but if you look at the MoD there which he deploys and when you think about stop and I when you think about how on one uses a misleading claim that stop and Frisk actually stops and reduce crime when it doesn't all you're doing as you're taking advantage of black and Brown bodies and you're pushing this narrative that particular mode of policy works when it clearly does not and so you're using this mode of a false this racist policy in order to strengthen your position as as a political leader so very much fits it explain what it stop and Frisk was the New York City for so long under Bloomberg. Yes over I. It was a policy which was stopped. Random people in very the theory is that you're in neighborhoods. Were were high amounts of pine for taking place. And so you're looking at black focused on black and Brown people particularly. I mean he has said this in recordings okay and so the idea is that you stop people who in these crime areas who in officers have the discretion to determine if they thought they were likely to cause crime right now. Legally the stops were not. They were not illegal. The problem was that there was a racial profiling component behind it. So that was the issue right. That makes it unconstitutional. But the way stop and I worked was that the theory was we're GonNa go to high crime areas. That was the theory but in reality so over the course of anywhere it went. Anyway I was. I was taking the Q train. I think the best seven Avenue Avenue. Stop of the q train and you see like a black child. Getting stop and Frisk by a gang of NYPD police officers in front of everyone. In broad daylight that was stop and Frisk like like black children and teenagers carrying about going out of business. Getting stop and Frisk in front of people. It's humiliation absolutely absolutely yes. There's absolutely correct. I mean I'm just giving you what they're three was. Bs can say something. When I was their age in high school I was a menace. I somehow got my driver's license and I proceeded to dry a hundred and twenty miles an hour get pulled over drive through stop signs. I became so good at talking to my way at a speeding tickets and and running. Stop signs in a way that if I were a black teenager doing that they would have derailed my life absolutely and so when I was living in. Eci for a period of time. You never saw this. Were they going down to the same nearly the same rates but it was really indiscriminate policy. Die Impact people across this city. And so you had ends you. Have you know. Hundreds of thousands of people were impacted by this and all those are unconstitutional end. Bloomberg until he threw his in for the presidency that he was wrong. Right exactly right and also the misogyny plus cases of sexual harassment so the the coalition of support that the Democrats need in order to defeat trump in November twenty twenty women and people of Color Women of color. Those are the communities that are going to be fighting their hearts out to make sure that voters show up. Those are the communities that Bloomberg checks all the boxes in terms of causing actual harm against and young people to I would add young people and poor people and younger people..
"barr" Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior
"So I'll pause there. What the Hell is bar doing meeting with? Puppet Master Rupert Murdoch because as we keep pointing out we need laws in place to prevent abuse of power in the media. Rupert Murdoch built in Media Empire around the globe by bulldozing over media regulations and now trapped in his propaganda prison here in here in the US as well as in the UK. Marcy Wheeler goes on. Here she points out that the DOJ prevents a full investigation of the Crane Complaint Barn his DOJ engaged in multiple acts of obstruction of the Ukraine. Complaint I bar did not recuse from a complaint mentioning him by name then knowing that was personally implicated. Doj did not conduct a full assessment of the whistleblower complaint which would have identified tied to the suny investigation of life partners and Eager Freeman. Then elsie invented an excuse not to share whistleblower complaint with Congress which resulted in a significant delay and almost led Ukraine to make concessions to obtain aid. Do you understand that bars? Cover up almost force Ukraine out on its own to do trump's bidding in exchange for much-needed aid so their soldiers stop being killed by Putin's invasion Putin who helped bring trump to power then marcy goes on then DOJ did not share whistleblower complaint with FCC required by Memorandum of notification finally DOJ made a comment claiming trump was exonerated precisely the abuse speaking about ongoing investigations. That Jim Komi got fired for so the rules only apply to us. They did not to the autocrat. And that is how the sausage gets made. This shows the weakening of the legal system the weakening of the judiciary which has always been the strongest bulwark against autocracy. In any case where a country goes from being a democracy into autocracy and it was something that we warned about early This is why we weren't people to not have too much faith in the Mueller. Probe if the Mueller probe was not going to move swiftly because what happens is that time becomes the enemy and so you have courts that are packed. You have judges that are threatened you have agencies that are purged. You have latkes taking their place and then you have people like bar. These deeply corrupt institutionalists. And that's not a contradiction in terms. He was an `institutionalised and he was covering up crimes for the time that he served an office consistently across his entire life. And what happens? Is People get so caught up in the image and in the title and the idea that this person could serve. As the Attorney General twice and that no one is going to challenge him challenge his fundamental legitimacy as somebody whose job it is to uphold the law they think. Of course you know. You're the attorney general. That's what you do. That is never what he has done. He has been immersed in Republican criminality for several decades and has been kind of lurking at the surface of various offenses and before you mentioned how the GOP has coward to trump despite trump looking ridiculous despite trump looking last week like the orange teletubby son in a photo you know there are these moments where yes okay. There must be incredible humiliation for this of all people to become the dictator. Like he's not even like a bad ass dictator but that of course. I WANNA sexier of dictator. I this is America dammit. You know we invented the action movie. I demand a more suitable dictator. Or we're going to go down. I want to go down under some spelt. Yes some have some looks you know I might as well be a Dapper Nazi than out of shape. He's very American though. I think in the way that he deceives people and especially deceives this kind of Snotty highbrow media into thinking that he's not a threat and this is what the GOP has been doing for a long time. Like when you mentioned before about how we've had these recurring crises where there is never accountability for those who committed the crimes. So you see the same people recurring again and again you C Watergate. Gop IRAN-CONTRA GOP the nine eleven aftermath again gop war in Iraq based on false pretenses by the GOP the two thousand eight financial collapse GOP. What happens sometimes like in the latter case you get a Democratic president who comes after this as Obama did and he gets the blame for what Bush and his administration actually did. But this is a very consistent pattern over the last forty years where you're literally seeing the same people you see. Roger Stone all the way back to Watergate Roger Stone who has a giant Tattoo of Nixon on his back. That will hopefully be seen in a jailhouse though. I don't really have hope for that anymore. You see bill bar being written about in one thousand nine hundred. Ninety two BY PEOPLE LIKE BILL. Safire people who were hard core conservatives and yet they were out warning everyone like stay the fuck away from Bill Bar. Bill Bar is crazy. I'm paraphrasing bill. Safire HERE BILL. Bars fucking nuts. Like he's a criminal he's covering shit up he's making the rest of US look bad. He's bringing the liberation down. Only Shit I mean that's basically what it is although that's all wrapped up in this well-mannered kind of veneer so everyone should have seen this coming and everyone should have recognized this as deeply scary. You know like Bill Bar. And trump are two sides of the same coin. You get trump as the flamboyant clownish buffoonish asshole basically and then you get bill bar as the slick `institutionalised who people like Ben Witness. In the law fair blog will go and swoon. About and see how wonderful they are until they do. The Very Bill Barr things. Bill bars like program to do which is to be a crime machine which is to cover up the dirty work of criminals and it's gross. The whole system is disgusting. That is indeed the swamp like when trump said there was a swamp. He wasn't lying about that. All the people I just mentioned are in that Swab but trump is in that swamp to an all trump did was take the swamp and make it and put it around the White House and have it protect his family and their criminal interests. And that's it and we wanted to clarify we're not that shaming anyone here or not fat shaming the president states where shaming specifically just how physically mentally emotionally trump is unfit to be office. You personally can be any shape size. You want we all that right. Donald Trump specifically is somebody that has shown us again and again that he is mentally fit to be in office he is somebody who fat shames other people who shames other people for what they look like for anything any tiny little thing perceived or real and yet he is somebody who is just physically repulsive to look out. I simply cannot look at this person anymore. His inner utter lack of character is physically manifested like Java the hut and who he is as an individual so I just wanted to clarify that and in terms of it finally becoming mainstream that yes. This is authoritarianism. Women and people of Color Women of color have been calling this out since the beginning. The black lives matter movement was about calling out police state violence as we've always point out in the show black people. In AMERICA NATIVE AMERICANS IN AMERICA. I've always been on the forefront of confronting the the the strain of authoritarianism has always been a part of our country's history because we were built on centuries of the Holocaust is slavery itself. It's just gotten to the point where now white people including affluent white people are impacted including the DOJ and members of the DOJ an F. B. I like like Anne McCabe and others like those people were were normally cloistered from the strain of authoritarianism as always ran through our history and now they're not and that's what's changed things that's what's changed the game. It's gotten so bad. That white people are impacted. One of the best commentaries on the lenient. Paul Manafort sentencing was. Somebody wrote on twitter. Now you understand how white people how the justice system works. If you're rich and white you can get away with it. No matter how many leads you destroy and now we're looking at the possibility of manafort even being pardoned right so so it with stone nearly getting off here which is such a Roger Stone Magic. Dark magic trick to pull off. Who Do you think's next metaphor? And then he'll be free to commit more crimes as Putin's political operative hill dye his hair. Again he'll be probably one of the first things he does and he gets out of prison and he'll get his suit on and he'll do the table rounds you know cable. Tv news rounds and he'll be right back at it and people will fall for it again because white people who are cloistered from authoritarian strain in our nation's history are not impacted and not just a reality. That's just a reality. So we need to confront that reality and we need to change it. And we need to understand that We needed to take leadership from women especially women of color because they are on the frontlines and have a long history of building and fortifying communities to resist this and the imagine how exhausted they are by now so we need a fortify them and back them up and be the cavalry to the most vulnerable among us and not leave this on them to save our democracy because it's about all of us refusing to abandon each other now because things really are that bad so we do call on the Democratic leadership in the House to impeach William Bar as soon as possible. That impeachment trial will play out likely. Just like trump's did they'll be phenomenal. Must Watch TV coming out of the house things to Adam Schiff and others in the house and then it's going to go to the Senate where the Republicans in the Senate are going to humiliate themselves for all of history in front of all the world by voting to let our criminal off the hook. You'll still get incredible. Must Watch TV coming out. The Democrats like Adam Schiff really nailing them really nailing them for their utter lack of a moral courage and and we need that to play out again. Because guess what. William Bar will be the first attorney general of the United States to be impeached and he needs to go down in history without around his neck Weena. Absolutely make sure of that because we need to fight with all the power that we have at our disposal as of now who is to say that the Democrats will maintain the House of the twenty twenty election. The trump crime family needs to dodge accountability. They've been very good at doing that. They've amassed a fortune doing that over the years. Who's to say they're not gonNA play all stops to steal as many races that they can twenty twenty. Why wouldn't the Kremlin help them? Because one of the first things a Democrat would do one of the first things that the congress would do if it had enough of Democrats in power the first thing they do will be passed sanctions on Russia for its massive aggression and finally contain Putin's aggression. That's what they would do. And then guess what the EU would fall in line because the EU needs the US to be strong on the Kremlin. That's how it always has been. Of course the Kremlin and the trump crime family needed dodge accountability now. We don't know if we're going to have a fair and free election and that's not alarmist to say that because look at our attorney general right now look at what's happening in front of our very eyes while we have the house. Democrats absolutely must impeach him. Please call on your representatives to demand that the impeach bar..
"barr" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote
"The trial started in earnest. We know last week They were all. This signed the oath book and Chief Justice John Roberts was sworn in but this is when they started the debate vague on the rules and then the Dem's took twenty one of their twenty four hours laying out the facts in a very impressive presentation. That even Lindsey Graham and Matt Gaetz admitted was really well done a lot of Republicans were like. Hey well done I think Matt Gaetz actually said something like that was so great you know and the trump's defense team looked like they were doing in eighth grade book report and then he said never mind. Eighth graders probably know how to use IPADS and powerpoint so interesting So so the Republicans did start their defense and took only and that was Saturday and took only two hours of the eight. A little over two of the eight that they had available to them Their defense was pretty weak. They brought up the Ukraine twenty sixteen conspiracy theory That they hacked the elections and actually made a really good case for witnesses by repeating over Oren over that they haven't heard from firsthand witnesses that makes the case for witnesses and documents even if you don't believe the house managers facts. Although a lot of Republican senators have said. Look it's it's not so much that We don't want witnesses or a fair trial. It's that we have to consider what the house sent us. And they didn't do their job by going through the courts to get All these subpoenas for witnesses and testimony. They should have done that. And they compare it to the Clinton trial but of course Clinton they had well over a year of Ken Starr Investigation with all the depositions and everything and and in this case as you know Pelosi and the house managers are like look. It was an. It was urgent emergency to get this done because if we had litigated this if we had let the subpoena for Kupperman go through with subpoenaed Bolton and Mulvaney It would have gone through the courts it would have been delayed and it probably would have gone past this election and that is not good because you know as you know he you know trump will cheat in this election. But that's sort of Moore's my whole point about holding the articles because I don't think impeaching him in acquitting him. AM IS GONNA stop him from cheating but you know again. I've always not always but I have learned. Nancy has a plan. And we'll see how this works out. and also running in parallel to the impeachment is the real World War. Evidence keeps coming out implicating the president including the breaking news this weekend that an audio tape exists of trump telling parnasse and a small group including Freeman and junior at a dinner in April of two thousand eighteen at the trump. DC Hotel downtown to get rid of your vantage ABC or excuse me CBS. Release the audio. And we clearly here trump's and get rid of her get her out tomorrow get her out tomorrow okay do it and we have that audio We played on the daily beans for more conversation about that tape. And some of the other things said during that meeting That the house else had on audio That carries massive implications for the trump administration. You can stick around for the interview today with Andras we're GonNa talk about that Also an impeachment impeachment news. Mike Pompeo has come out saying he's willing to testify of legally required which means he knows he won't be legally required because he's a chicken shit and he's made that clear in his embarrassing performance in NPR interview with Mary Louise Kelley in which he refuses to answer Ukraine questions then afterwards yells at her for as long as the interview took saying. Do you think Americans give a fuck about Ukraine. And then asking her if she can point out Ukraine on a map. And then how to blank Gotcha map ready to go. And then she did point it out and then snatched it away and said people will hear about this and then he left so that was all on the record so NPR released story about the Coda to that interview and Pompeii Peyot made an official statement in response accusing Mary. Louise Kelley of lying to him twice. Because she said she wouldn't ask about Ukraine and because she thought the post interview was off the record. Neither of those things are true. He then called the media unhinged and said well implied she was unable to point out Ukraine on the map. Saying you hello. Bangladesh is not Ukraine and. I think he's actually. I think he's actually confusing Bangladesh with Budapest but You know either way. He admitted he carries black maps around with him. Like A fucking Weirdo Weirdo. Let's just let's just astounding to me secretary of state. That's your secretary of state. Anyhow pompeo would not agree to testify. I don't think if he actually had to which makes me think the administration is certain there will be a no vote for witnesses or a couple not enough not not a majority though. New polling shows seventy two percent kind of Americans want them want witnesses and documents including sixty nine percent of Republicans so they may vote no for witnesses. But I think they'll pay the price in twenty twenty and the next In the news the Justice Department is conceding that it had insufficient cause to continue to monitor Carter page hat boy According to records made public publicly Thursday the Department of Justice told the court that two of the four five applications for renewal for Carter Page had insufficient predication to establish probable cause. Now is anyone surprised that bill bar is telling the courts in opposition to the Inspector General's findings that they did not have enough evidence to survey Carter. Her Page I. Nothing grabbed from the surveillance of page was used in order to open any other investigations into trump or Russia. Second Carter page. Age wasn't charged with anything. The warrants were issued in September of two thousand sixteen crossfire. Hurricane was opened in earnest months earlier based on the Popadopoulos drunk Brag Ugh and third. Nobody gives a shit about Carter page yet. This Department of Justice keeps trying to make. This is a thing. The entire crux of their defense that Russia didn't hack the elections and Muller was appointed improperly despite the multiple convictions muller got and every single federal judge that found Moeller's appointment authorized. And so it's it's just kind of you know everyone's pointing to this all the Conservatives and trumpers are like Oh look The Department of Justice itself is saying you know it didn't have enough. It didn't have predicate to to get these warrants and you know yes there were mistakes made with the fiso warrants but again nothing from Carter page was used I Carter page was not with the trump campaign while he was being surveilled. It's just the weirdest defense to hang your hat on So to speak your Carter page hat your floppy floppy padres free hat night hat Also in the news. Last December Congress passed a Defense Bill National Defense Authorization Act which included a provision provision ordering the DNA or director of National Intelligence to provide congress an unclassified report identifying those responsible for the murder of Washington Post IOS journalist? Jamal Kashogi the and that was in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. In two thousand eighteen as we know that deadline passed last week and nothing from the office the Director of National Intelligence and that's in violation of the National Defense Authorization Act that's against the law and as we know the CIA has concluded Muhammed Bone saw or Mohammed bin. Salman ordered the killing Ron Wyden Senator has written To Joseph Maguire. That's the DNA saying our office has asked the Oh deny. That's the office of the deny about the status of that information and has not received a response. So that's really interesting. And according to Buzzfeed the provisions in the NDA required conclusions and evidence. Silence about the advanced knowledge enroll at any current or former official of the government of Saudi Arabia or any current or former senior Saudi political figure over the directing ordering hiring or tampering of evidence and asked for a list of foreigners that were responsible for or complicit in ordering controlling or otherwise directing an act or acts contributing to or causing Khashoggi's death as well as anyone who impeded the impartial investigation of his killing. So all that sort of going on behind the scenes while this impeachment trial is is headed towards now Monday. I think we're GONNA have a full or close to a full eight hour presentation by a Trump's legal team and also on on Tuesday and then Wednesday and Thursday. Maybe Friday I expect to do the the questions by senators. I think it's a sixteen hour block. Then there will be a four hour debate and then a vote. A down on whether witnesses will happen. Romney has said he's likely to vote for witnesses. But as you know no we need four Republican senators to break ranks and vote for them and of course Murkowski and Collins are just shocked by what they heard. Adam Schiff say when he reported something that came out from. CBS News That Someone had heard what an unnamed source had heard trump threaten senators. Saying he would put their heads on pikes if they voted against him and now they're saying well at just makes me so angry that you would say that that I'm GonNa you know I'm GonNa Shit all over the constitution now. Because I'm I'm mad. You hurt my feelings so Yes feelings surreal yes. People have feelings but I don't think that that's a reason to not take your oath to the constitution or your job is senator. Seriously I think But honestly I I think they were looking for any anything any way out. to to be able to convince their constituents that they shouldn't vote for witnesses..
