"Around the region. It's ten 40. The latest now from Ukraine where fighting continues to ravage that nation's eastern region, leaders there have allegedly asked the U.S. for cluster munitions to fight Russia, but the U.S. appears to be reluctant to supply them. Here's WTO's national security correspondent JJ green. There are reports the U.S. has been asked for cluster munitions. But The Pentagon won't talk about it. I'm not going to get into any specific requests that we may or may not have received from Ukraine. That's Pentagon press secretary general pat Ryder. Certainly we have a good process in place, as you know, secretary Austin speaks regularly to the Ukrainian minister of defense. He also convenes and hosts the Ukraine defense contact group. It seems that the main concern here for the U.S. is that cluster munitions are banned by more than 100 countries. From our standpoint, we're going to continue to work with them to discuss what it is they need to be successful on the battlefield. And while The Pentagon understandably won't discuss this alleged request by Ukraine, it's hard to see how cluster munitions would help them on the battlefield. Again, that's WTO's national security correspondent JJ green. New tonight, the house January 6th committee is reportedly considering criminal referrals for at least four people in addition to former president Trump, multiple sources are telling CNN the four are former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, conservative lawyer John eastman, former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, and the former president's former personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, the sources say the committee has not made a final decision yet on which people to refer to the Justice Department for prosecution. And for what charges for what offenses I should say, the committee's chairman, congressman Benny Thompson, told reporters earlier this week, the committee hopes to release its final report and vote publicly on criminal referrals on December 21st.

"You, come out to begin your press conference criticizing Donald Trump. Can you say category they would not support him if you were the Republican nominee? What I'm saying is it would be pretty hard to be sworn in. To the presidency, if you're not, willing to uphold the constitution. That's what I said. And I just said it again. It's like the answering mobster who wants this kid to pass the class. Are you Shane and my kid doesn't take the test? You're gonna give her a nap. Word on saying is if we don't take the test, it might be pretty hard for him to pass. You say he's not gonna pass this course. It would be very difficult for him to I'm not saying it. I just said it, but I didn't say what I didn't say. Yes. And it wouldn't be difficult for Trump to take the oath because it means nothing to him. He did it once and didn't uphold it. He would do it again, Mitch. Right. Right. They just will not say no, of course he's wildly unfit and a criminal and belongs in prison. And not in The White House. They're scared. At a CNN commentator said this last night, guess who else won't say it? Desantis. For as tough as he is, he will not say that tough. Trump is unfit for office. Benny Thompson saying they are going to make a criminal referrals to which I say good. I understand the reasons why not two or this or that, but I think I had to have all of this evidence and not say this is criminal And I get that look, it's already politicized, right? It's a former president. It's always going to be. It was a political attack on the United States. It's a course it's politicized. They're about to investigate the investigators and try to blame China 6 on Nancy Pelosi. Who was one of the targets of January 6th. But anyway, here is Betty Thompson. We have

"From the house panel investigating last year's January 6th riot at the capitol. The chairman of the committee, Mississippi representative Benny Thompson, says the panel will issue criminal referrals to the Justice Department, but it's not clear who the target would be or what charges would be recommended. CBS News chief Washington correspondent major Garrett joined Sean and Hillary earlier to talk about what this means and the potential impact. Let's walk through the dimensions of this. One is practical. The practical reality is a referral from Congress is no stronger than a referral from you or for me. Meaning if we picked up the phone and called the Justice Department and said, I would like to make a criminal referral. We would have the same rights and same authorities and the same impact as a practical matter. The Justice Department decides what it wants to do, it doesn't need a criminal referral from a ordinary citizen like you or I or the January 6th committee. That's practical reality. But there's a political expectation after all this work and all of the things that are going to be included in this committee's final report, don't you have an opinion on this? And the committee has debated this for a long time, decides yes, we won for the public record to have an opinion on this matter. We want to refer something. The last part of it is institutional, as we've long discussed, Congress now believes this was an attack by the Trump executive branch on the legislative branch. And if you're going to protect it with a criminal referral and you don't do it in this instance, win which you ever do that. So for all those three reasons, that's the backdrop for whatever the committee decides what there goes to the highest level of president Trump and there are certainly indications that that's going to be at minimum debated and possibly referred, but it will be the Justice Department in the end that will decide

Jan. 6 committee to issue criminal referrals, chairman says

"The January 6th committee's chairman says the panel investigating the capitol riot will issue criminal referrals to the Justice Department. Benny Thompson is not saying who will be targeted or whether Donald Trump will be among them. Vice chair Liz Cheney has hinted for months that referrals will come. Thompson says the panel will discuss details later today while looking to issue its final report by year's end, while Congress can send criminal referrals to the Justice Department, deciding whether to actually pursue charges is ultimately up to federal prosecutors, Sagar Meghani, Washington.

"With these new developments. Well, right now, what we know is that the committee has not formally asked former vice president Mike Pence to come forward, but Benny Thompson has made very clear that they would really like to speak with him. Meanwhile, we know that this is a formal outreach to Fox News host Sean Hannity. And here's what they're trying to do. They are collapsing in on the Trump inner circle for two reasons Brianna and it's one of them is because the details about what was going on in The White House in this really critical time on January 6th remain very elusive at this point. And the reality is the committee needs to establish the mindset of the former president. That is why they are reaching out to the people they think may know what best. The house select committee investigating the January 6th insurrection now wants to talk to former vice president Mike Pence and Fox News host Sean Hannity. The chairman of the select committee told CNN he wants Pence to voluntarily speak with the panel about what he witnessed one year ago tomorrow and the conversations leading up to that day. I would hope that he would do the right thing and come forward and voluntarily talk to the committee. Representative Benny Thompson said Pence certified the election despite the extreme risk from rioters on January 6th, rioters who had heard for days then president Donald Trump's pressure campaign on his VP to halt the process. His life was at risk, the vice president could not lead the capital of the United States, the cause of the riot. Thompson said the risk to pence's life did not seem to motivate Trump to act while a capital was under attack. To take a 187 minutes. To say the rioters, you need to stop and go home because my vice president is in the building. And his life is in danger. Absolute shame. A spokesman for Pence declined to comment on Thompson's remarks. The committee also wants to speak with Fox News host Sean Hannity, saying he texted with Trump, then White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and others in the days surrounding January 6th. We have so many of these tax and pieces of evidence indicating that he was outside of his role as a press person acting as a political operative. Publicly, Hannity was saying this ahead of January 6th a big day tomorrow, big crowds apparently showed up to the point where the west wing could hear the music and the chanting of the people that were there already. But privately, Hannity sent a message to Meadows the night before the insurrection reading, I'm very worried about the next 48 hours. The committee wants to know why Hannity was worried and what, if any prior knowledge he may have had before the capitol riots. I want to make sure that everyone knows this isn't a subpoena. We've asked him to cooperate with us as a fact witness out of his sense of patriotism. It's members also believe the Fox News host has detailed knowledge regarding Trump's state of mind in the days following the January 6th attack. Hannity texted Meadows and congressman Jim Jordan about a conversation he had with Trump four days after the insurrection. The text reads, guys, we have a clear path to land the plane in 9 days. He can't mention the election again, ever. I did not have a good call with him today, and worse, I'm not sure what is left to do or say, and I don't like not knowing if it's truly understood. Ideas? This effort to try to talk to former vice president Mike Pence shows that the committee is working in this aggressive way, but what it also shows is that they think that he can provide really critical information about what was going on. Leading up to January 6th, even though he was not in the same place as the president in those 187 minutes when the president did nothing. And the reality is Brianna, if they do speak with vice president Mike Pence, they will have an informed interview and here's why. We know that key allies of the former vice president have already cooperated with the committee, John and Brianna. Yeah, I mean, look, it would be, I don't know if I expect Mike Pence to talk to this committee. That would be quite the get. We will see if it happens. Whitney, thank you so much for that report. All right, joining us now. Former Republican city commissioner of Philadelphia Al Schmidt, who defended the results of the election as he faced harassment and threats from the former president's and his allies and CNN senior law enforcement analyst and former FBI deputy director Andrew mccabe. I want to start with you with these texts from Sean Hannity. About what they mean for the investigation because to me they are revelatory. And I think for the committee as well. You have Hannity writing quote, I'm very worried about the next 48 hours. On January 5th, I'm very worried about the next 48 hours, which begs the question Al why. Why would you be worried? So what does this tell you about the discussions that were taking place? And what was going on? Well, perhaps they're worried because they were participants in all of this leading up to it. And the one hand they have their foot on the gas pushing lies about the 2020 general election. And then as we're finding out now, on the other hand, on the other, they're trying to pump the brakes, I guess, to keep things from perhaps going too far. And that going too far is the sort of physical manifestation of all of those lies. And acts of violence on Capitol Hill. Andrew, what do you think? I think that's exactly right. I think the committee's letter lays it out completely in the very first paragraph. There are three things that are important here. They say that it's clear from the text that Hannity had advance knowledge of what was going to happen. It's clear that he had concerns about what was going to happen and it's undeniable that he had direct contact with not just the president, but with many members of his staff to include his chief of staff and The White House counsel's office. There is no doubt that Sean Hannity has essential knowledge and information that this committee needs to get to. No question. And Andy, just the idea that Hannity was aware that something was going to happen indicates that this wasn't spontaneous, that there was something that was known that was about to happen. And that's key to all of this. It was planned. It was being discussed and people, including the president's lawyers, I should say the lawyers for the presidency, because of course they're not his personal lawyers, The White House counsel, had clearly indicated to Hannity that they had such concerns about where this was going that they were at least communicating that they were considering leaving if Mike, if the pressure was continuously applied to Mike Pence. I mean, this is like an investigator's dream.

'The Big Fraud' Author Rep. Troy Nehls on the Falsities of J6

"Do you get into it all in the book this idea that that rioter, we hear this from Benny Thompson over and over that rioters killed multiple police officers. They say rioters killed multiple police officers or even if you push them on that you say, who? What are their names? And then they'll say, well, they're writers or their police officers who died of the trauma and committed suicide or that were succumbed to injuries. Because I remember what happened in April, April 2nd of 2021, on four two, when there was a capitol police officer named Billy Evans, who was murdered by a member of the Nation of Islam, a farrakhan supporter, the drove his car into the capitol police, he was murdered, and yet nobody even talks about Billy Evans. Do you get into though this idea that the rioters killed anybody? Because the only person that I can see from my analysis that was murdered to straight up murdered on January 6th was Ashley babbitt. That is absolutely correct Jack. It was Ashley babbitt. The only gunshot that was fired that day was by lieutenant Byrd, who murdered Ashley babbitt and to your viewers, your listeners. Number one, that shooting never went to a grand jury. It was the quickest shooting I've talked to individuals inside the capitol police and said, we've never seen an investigation happen so quickly. It should have gone to a grand jury. And then Benny Thompson and the dishonest media, the greatest threat to our nation, they want to make these claims that police officers were killed that day by rioters. There were some medical emergencies, no question about it. But there's not one autopsy, not one autopsy conducted that said that any of those officers were murdered. The only one that was murdered was Ashley babbitt. I had Aaron babbitt up there two weeks ago, and I actually took him inside the capitol, took him to the speaker's lobby where his wife Ashley was killed because I think it was very important for him to see and he hasn't been there. So,

Is out with his new book the big fraud what Democrats don't want you to know about January 6th, the 2020 election and a whole lot else. Well, I'm excited to say that congressman Troy nells is here with us today, former law enforcement 30 years, 8 of those as a county sheriff in Texas. That's right, a constitutional sheriff in Texas. Congressman, thank you so much for joining us today on the Charlie Kirk show. Jeff, thank you. It's good to be with you, what an honor. And yes, you can get the book on Amazon. It's flying off the shelf. So thank you and Trump's endorsed it. It's a must read for all Americans, but thank you. Well, and the fact that the president endorsed it obviously incredible, you know, I'm just looking even at the cover and of course I followed your work on pushing back on so much when it came to the January 6th investigations. And even the Ashley babbitt case, and that's essentially what now, the cover, of course, here is not the Ashley babbitt shooting, but it does show it does depict those capitol police agents pointing the guns directly at the people on January 6th. Yes, I was the probably the last member to leave the house floor. I'm at the back door, and that's what the cover is. Me at the back door's conversing with the riders. Oh, that's you. Oh, wow. I didn't realize I was actually at the back doors and then there's a few minutes later I heard the shot that lieutenant Byrd did in my humble opinion murder and kiel Ashley babbitt and we so how far away it would and I apologize for not realizing it was you at first, but how far away were you? Walk us through the actual the tactical setup there because how far were you from that hallway when lieutenant bird fired that fatal shot? Yes. The shot took place in the speaker's lobby, which was behind me. And I would probably say a distance of maybe 50 yards. I was at the doors that lead into the House chamber, trying to make sure that they didn't breach the House chamber. No rioter never got on the House floor, so the left Benny Thompson and everybody. They're telling you that if Ashley babbitt would have jumped through that window into the speaker's lobby, she would have been on the House floor. That is just a false sense. It's not true.

At issue, Ginny Thomas text messages with key figures who were trying to overturn the 2020 election results. Here's NPR congressional correspondent Claudia chrysalis.

She thought it occurred, but was not able to offer any proof.

The FBI Search Warrant Will Prove This Is a Political Witch Hunt

"And they've asked the judge to keep the warrant private. I think the reason why is because they know this is a political witch hunt. And whatever's on that document will prove it's a political witch hunt. That the raid had nothing to do with the national archives, got nothing to do with J 6. This has everything to do because we know, by the way, from Benny Thompson, the chair of the J 6 committee that there are no criminal charges coming out of that against president Trump. There are none. So I believe that something else is going on here. And that something else is looking for something to indict this president because if they can indict this president, he will not be able to run for The White House again. And these people are terrified. They're terrified of Donald Trump. You know why they're terrified of Donald Trump? Because he delivered on his campaign promises. He made promises to weed the people he made promises to the maga world he made promises to the America first community and he delivered all those promises. He also stood up to the military industrial complex of this nation, the one that's continuing to send young men and young women into battle, where we don't need to be in battle. He also stood up to the mainstream media and he showed the Republicans how to fight back against these little morons like little Jimmy Acosta over at CNN. The most profane name in news.

Revolver News' Darren Beattie Has His J6 Rebuttals Prepared

"Downbeat founder and editor at revolver news Darren. Welcome back to America first. Great to be here. Thanks for having me again. So I'm angry that you came up with this idea because I would have loved to come up with this idea. So I put the image up on the screen. We don't have an official report like the 9 11 official commission report, but should it actually be released? This gentleman, the founder of revolver news, has prepared to robotic with his own forward prior to the official report. Tell us how you came up with this idea and why it needs to be done, Darren. Well, you know, I wish I could claim credit for the idea, but actually it's the idea of the great folks over at skyhorse press and they published a lot of interesting things. They are despite being a subsidiary, I believe, of Simon and Schuster. They are undeterred to explore things that run contrary to the dominant establishment narratives and what better topic to explore from a contra establishment point of view than the January 6 folks being perpetrated against the public by nefarious elements of the regime. And so what this book is going to be is going to be the sham report that's going to come out publicly, presumably that's going to be released by Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney. But it'll have my introduction basically to demolish the whole thing to answer their questions. And most importantly, not to engage in, okay, I'm just going to respond to everything they say because a lot of what they say is ridiculous. But to address the really salient issues that are left entirely unexplored in this alleged investigation, which is really the important thing is not directly refuting every bit of nonsense that they put out to the public, but rather presenting those core pillar issues that get to the beating heart of January 6th that remain entirely unexplored by the committee. And indeed, I would even say the committee was set up to suppress such an exploration.

"They told him that. When pressed for evidence that he had been cheated, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell said in effect how dare you. They said corrupt judges, Giuliani said the president's people weren't tough enough to fight this fight. He said you're a bunch of wussies. You also wondered, who are these people after the election advising the president and his legal or campaign team break rank to tell him the truth? And the evidence is that many of them did. In fact, rather than a bunch of loonies abetting a delusional president, I was impressed and have been for these hearings with the calm, intelligent, rational, demeanor of an Eric hirschman and a Bill Barr in a pet cipollone and Derek Lyons, The White House secretary that they weren't more public about this, that the president had lost, in December of 2020, is more than upsetting, and sip alone is especially careful now and again when asked to express simple truths, but the hearings have been well scripted and haven't devolved into name calling or adjectives. You don't hear Rey's voices. I think the people that are doing the hearing, these Jamie raskins, the Stephanie Murphy yesterday, Liz Cheney and Benny Thompson have been doing so well, but the question remains, so what about all of this? We're not O mariotti, where do we where does this ultimately go? Well, I think it certainly could lead to a Justice Department prosecution. But I am less bullish than some people that that will actually happen. We did hear some reporting this week from The New York Times where it was clear that, for example, much of Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony was a surprise to them that they were jolted and surprised by her testimony that they rarely discuss Trump's potential liability that it's almost like a boat and subject that the Justice Department. So I'm not sure whether or not the former president could be implicated, but I do think that there is certainly some liability for the crooked attorneys that surrounded the former president, including you mentioned mister Giuliani. And mister eastman, mister Clark, some of the folks that we have heard a lot about and we'll have to see what additional evidence comes forward, but obviously there's also been a very fulsome investigation of the groups that attacked the capitol, including those individuals, the groups that were that were working with those individuals we heard from yesterday, right? Oath keepers from probably. And some of those people have been charged and convicted if I'm not mistaken of sedition, is the president target for that, I think that's less likely because what that would require is proof beyond a reasonable doubt of an agreement between the former president and those crowds. I don't think merely sending a tweet and then people responding to that tweet. It would be sufficient to prove something like that. I understand that. I won't argue that point with you. I think that while the president was just throwing stuff against the wall, lo and behold it happened. But that doesn't seem to be an agreement. Is an agreement necessary for it to be sedition you can't independently all by yourself? Commit the act of sedition? Well, seditious conspiracy, which is what they're charging does require a conspiracy. I don't think I think that for the former president, a more I don't see a stand-alone charge of something like sedition, what I would see is likely either a conspiracy to, for example, obstruct an official proceeding or we know that January 6th was an official proceeding. And so the question is, was he obstructing it? Now, the issue there is that some of the ways that he was directly involved with the obstruction were ways that, of course, were proposed to him by attorneys, right? So like mister eastman was suggesting this scheme by which Pence was going to set aside electoral votes. And that's why I said, you know, mister eastman himself, it may have liability potentially to flip, but I think otherwise Trump's defense is going to be that a lawyer was telling me this is a great idea. And he came up with the idea. I suppose folks are wondering, so then what comes of all of this, if it's not some sort of criminal conviction of either the former president and maybe just that. If Rudy Giuliani goes to jail, does that really send a message to future candidates or presidents? Maybe these hearings accomplish that, but do you get the feeling that this will be for not if something more specific doesn't come out of it? I think that I think that it is certainly the case that our responses and nation to what happened in January 6th is insufficient. And I placed the blame on that largely due to the fact that one of the two major political parties has refused to come to any sort of reckoning on that. And his refused to repudiate what happened on that day. And in fact, still engages in denial. I think the reality of the situation is that we have suggested to people that are actually potentially more clever devious than former president Trump that they can use this playbook to do even more dangerous things. I know that's hard to believe that there's something more dangerous than an attack on our capital, but I think a more skillfully pulled off scheme to try to private of our democracy could have been more successful and that's I think a very scary thought. So I am concerned about that, but at the same time, I'm just telling you predicting what I see and what I think will happen and I have to be honest with the listeners about that. And about that, you are as you were last time we spoke about this, not that bullish, you say, you don't see charges from the Justice Department. You don't. That's right. And Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony did move the ball forward. I do think the Justice Department now could pursue a charge for incitement of violence, which I think that would be something that is just a straightforward charge. Would they have some legal complications for some issues, but I think is something they could pursue. But based upon public reporting, I obviously know we have no insight info, but based on public reporting, I'm not bullish about the Justice Department. The conviction wouldn't keep anybody from running again anyway, the president could still yet run regardless of his status, right? That's right, although I imagine it would damage damage him and distract him. From running. But it could potentially make him a martyr. I was just going to say, this world, I could see it working for him. That's a Renato mariotti, the legal analyst, former federal prosecutor, and the host of on topic, a podcast.

"Didn't seem like a misdemeanor from hell, mister Bannon. What happened? I thought that was pretty good help. This is round one. That's what happened. This is a bulletproof appeal. I have you ever in another case seeing a judge 6 times say in the case that he thinks the standard for willfulness is wrong. Jeffrey is at a bulletproof appeal. There's no such thing as a bulletproof appeal. The defense was handcuffed a little bit here in the sense that they wanted to put forth certain defenses. And the judge denied those defenses. So we really couldn't argue too much. I think the only argument they had was that the subpoena itself wasn't properly signed or some ministerial amount like that. So there are some issues that they could bring. Certain defenses they wanted to raise the jury. They were not allowed to. So those are viable appeals, but certainly not a easy one from mister Bannon. His team did not present any defense witnesses, what do you make of that decision? Why not build a case around executive privilege? You know, there really wasn't too much of a case to be brought. I mean, they tried to, like I said, they tried to bring a couple defenses in, but the judge would not allow that. Once the judge denied those motions, this was basically just a slow moving guilty plan. There wasn't too much of a defense argument to make. We saw not surprisingly a fairly quick verdict. I mean, you know, three hours and a quarter of their lunch. So there really wasn't too much to do here for the defense. So the other item that they present as part of the defense is the fact that, for instance, Benny Thompson did not testify members of the January 6th committee who subpoenaed Steve Bannon did not testify. Listen again to Steve Bannon from today. I only have one disappointment. And that

"Leaders of a committee investigating the January 6th capitol attack are issuing a warning to those not complying with the subpoena Democrat Benny Thompson of Mississippi and Republican Liz Cheney of Wyoming say they'll consider a criminal contempt of Congress charge for those who don't comply President Biden says the economic recovery from the pandemic is far from over He noted the latest jobs report saying the unemployment rate has dropped below 5% for the first time since March of 2020 as it stands at 4.8% The president's following through with a campaign promise on immigration work to build the border wall with Mexico is being stopped in South Texas in the district of democratic congressman Henry cuellar The remaining contracts in the Laredo sector will be terminated He says work to shore up the levee system along the Rio Grande will continue but it will be with an eye toward limiting the environmental impact I'm Bryan shook This is Bloomberg Wall Street week with David Weston from Bloomberg radio This is Wall Street week I'm David Weston We're going to conclude our week as we always do with our special contributor here on Wall Street week He is Larry summers of Harvard So Larry thank you so much for being back with us Let's start with the jobs numbers came out on Friday this week Disappointing by quite a margin I must say although some people thought underlying it the numbers weren't as bad as maybe they appeared David look I think this fit the story we've been telling on this show almost exactly We got a lot of demand we don't have so much supply That's why the unemployment rate came down more than people expected That's why the wage growth was much higher than people expected We don't have a soft economy in terms of demand We have more of a more damage to people's willingness to work than people expected a few months ago The problem is that this points in favor of the inflationary diagnosis Look average hourly earnings this week this month rose out of 7 and a half percent annual rate That's not consistent with any reasonable theory of inflation And with the unemployment rate lower and falling it may even get a situation maybe even get worse So I think we're in a very difficult situation Here's one way to think about it We've got interest rates way below their neutral level the fed thinks the neutral level of interest rates like two and a quarter percent They've got interest rates close to a half percent They've got interest rates close to zero And I think given the vast structural changes underway after COVID we've probably got unemployment below the natural or neutral rate of unemployment and that's just not a combination that adds up to anything other than taking a big risk on the inflation side So I'm pretty concerned about where we are So what I want to turn to a different subject is something you wrote on in The Washington Post at the end of the week And it's this proposal actually as part of the Biden pack jacket I'm a package that the banks report to the IRS on the overall inflows and outflows as I understand it a deposits being held Basically as a way to get at some income that otherwise doesn't show up for example on your W two or your ten to 9 you wrote and you were pretty forceful about it I'm not saying The Washington Post explain your point of view on this David I this is really an easy one Right now if you or I have an account in a bank the bank reports on that account by reporting interest So we're already sharing that information with the government and the IRS has already learning about our bank account The proposal that's made is that in addition to reporting on the interest they pay the report on the inflow when the money comes in And the reason for that report is that we've got an epidemic of taxon payment in this country On income that you get in a wage or salary on a W two compliance is above 99% An income where you don't have information reporting by businesses it's below 50 50 And in total the tax gap is going to cost us $7 trillion over the next ten years So the proposal is that when banks get substantial deposits they have to report them There's plenty of room for argument about exempting the little guy There's plenty of room for argument about how if it's a paycheck it's already being reported on so you shouldn't have to report it again Those are details that can be worked out But when the banking industry is saying that this is some kind of major invasion of people's privacy This is something that's impossible to do I mean these are people who are incredibly proud of the fact that they're letting you buy a fraction of a stock on your cell phone in two and a half seconds The idea that it's some kind of big burden to report a basic inflow to the IRS on an account where you already report is absurd So it was hilarious speculate with me You know these banks Taylor Well what's driving If it's not the administrative burden you sort of dismiss that If it's not the privacy concerns why are they protesting so strongly Some of it is probably that they want to maintain good relations with their customers who aren't always honest about the tax law and don't want to be reported on you know when you see a business doing unreasonable thing it's often because they're in service of their customers That's one possibility Another possibility is that they're people who just don't like taxes and don't like anything about Taxes Look I think in fairness the IRS has had some privacy problems Some of these revelations that have been show shocking have also been wrong And I think that contributes to this ethos But I sure think that the thing everybody ought to be able to agree on democratic and Republican whatever exactly you think $7 trillion over the next decade In taxes that are legally owed legally owed under the tax law legislated by Donald Trump and not paid that's got to be a scandal that calls for us to do much more than we're doing And information reporting is one part of that and strengthening the IRS is another One of the big developments potentially this week had to do with that global minimum corporate tax Ireland's surprised At least me by saying yes we'll go along with it And now we know in fact it will go forward Tell us about the significance of that potentially David I think this is the most important global economic agreement of the 21st century so far It's important in reality because it's going to fortify tax collections from corporations for companies all over the world It's important in principle because instead of countries running a race to the bottom with respect to taxing business income they're now going to level up in a way that's going to be fairer and permit tax reductions on working people all over the world And it's important in showing that global economic diplomacy can be something that's not just about the people who are in Davos but about working people everywhere Joe Biden's talked about a middle class based foreign policy This is a huge triumph of where that it's a great credit to the president who created the environment to secretary Yellen who drove the agreement and to a large number of officials who've been working in this area for many many years This is really a big deal for international economic diplomacy Okay Larry summer's hardware Thank you so very much for being back with us Larry of course is our special contributor here at Wall Street week Finally one more thought Call it the Mount Rushmore of tax havens Taxes.
