Appeals court rules funding for Trump border wall construction 'unlawful'

"A federal appeals court has ruled against the trump administration as it looked to transfer military funds to build sections of the US border wall with Mexico the ninth US circuit court of appeals ruling today that diverting money from military construction projects to build wall is unlawful creating a setback for president trump's attempt to deter immigration joining us with more of the KCBS ring central news line is bilking professor and director of the immigration and deportation defense clinic at the university of San Francisco residents as always for being with us help us with some perspective here just how significant is this ruling well it's pretty significant because as we all know the wall is something that president trump he said that he was going to do when he was a candidate and he said he was going to do it all the time that he's been in office and took a big step back basically he tried to transfer two point five billion dollars from the department of defense budget to build a squall claiming that there was an emergency but the court said that this is not the type of emergency that Congress intended it in the legislation that that appropriated defense money do you think the justice department will appeal this I think they will because I believe that they follow the instructions of the president and bill Barr who's head of the justice department follow the instructions of the president so I think they will appeal the and they have a couple choices they can ask for a rehearing with a fuller panel on the ninth circuit because the food just three judges today in a two to one decision or they can go directly to the Supreme Court I have a feeling they're going to head to the Supreme Court on this yes you will but more about the politics of all this is you mentioned this was a huge issue for the trump campaign in twenty sixteen are do you have a sense of just how big of an issue is going to be this time around relative to that last campaign I think that the president does believe that his position on immigration is what helped him win the election in twenty sixteen so I I I I can't see him backing off of the immigration issue so I I definitely think that he's going to say that I want to get this wall built on the he can appoint to what's happening at the border right now there's over sixty seventy thousand migrants there waiting to apply for asylum and he's going to point at that and I I believe that that what part of this campaign is going to be based on even amid the corona virus a pandemic and more calls for racial justice you know I think so because of that he separate immigration from George Floyd and and the the policing protests and and so I I I definitely think that immigration is an issue that he continues to espouse we saw that earlier this week what Thursday or last week so I went to the Supreme Court ruled against him on daca he tweeted instantly that it was a bad decision sprint Corp didn't like him now I don't know if he's going to try to rescind daca but it's clear that his base one fifty here an anti immigrant sentiment from

"Welcome. Doctors Recap presented by facebook. Today's Wednesday, June. Twenty fourth the Dow was down Florida's Covid. Nineteen rate is soaring in. We're focused on what bill bar did or didn't it to snuff out a whole bunch of marijuana mergers? Earlier today, the House Judiciary Committee heard from Three Career Department of Justice officials turned, whistle blowers, all alleging that attorney general bar abused his power. The one making the most headlines was involved in the Roger Stone. Prosecution but we're focused on a different whistle blower. A guy named John Elias who focuses on antitrust law. Elias alleged bar ordered the Department of Justice's Antitrust Division to do deep investigations into ten proposed mergers of marijuana companies, even though none of those deals met the normal threshold to merit such investigation. This certainly is not the first time that president trump's DOJ has been accused of. Of leading bias, drive antitrust decisions, but it is the first time that a DOJ. Attorney is the one making the allegations, and it could have consequences for other antitrust investigations in other industries like big tech so I spoke with one of the marijuana company CEOS cited by the whistle blower, and you'll hear that conversation a bit later, but before we get there, I would be remiss in not noting that while today's hearing was going on Bill Barr agreed to testify in front of that same committee. That'll happen on July twenty eighth. I caught up with political reporter. Elena, Trine to ask. Ask Her. If today's hearing will inform what bargains asked, next month will definitely inform the next hearing I think that the real impetus for chairman Nadler asking for even saying that he would subpoena Bill Barking and testify. That was prompted by the Berman firing, but I do think that what's happening today about the J. Whistle blower testifying as well as the former prosecutor for Roger Stone all of those kind of play into what I think. The committee's interested in looking at which is is bill bar abusing his power of attorney general, and is he politicizing the Department of Justice that was..

"How trump has famously described often he wants from a Department of Justice which is, he wants a protection racket you want. Roy Cohn he wants a personal attorney to be doing what he wants an end operating to protect his friends, and possibly even to go after his adversaries. And we should make this point. Which is that who leads these offices really important? This isn't the first time that the Attorney General William Bar has put or tried to put someone who's close to him in charge of an office. This happened in Washington and that did and having a real impact on cases involving the trump administration. Can you just tell that story? Yeah and it was a similar. It was an interesting similar dynamic where you had in. The US Attorney's office in the District of Columbia Jesse Liu. Who is also considered to be you know very conservative Republican who would serve as somebody who could be trusted to manage that office, but then when push came to shove, and when the prosecutors in that office the Line Blind Prosecutor's office. With the cases that Robert Mueller presented that were directly impacting on trump's friends and political allies Jesse Lewd was involved in those cases. She didn't interfere with US cases. You didn't put those cases to stop. She didn't protect the president in any real way. Those Jason did go forward. You're talking about cases against Roger Stone and Michael Flynn cases against registered in Michael. Flynn specifically and then in February, we're. She was weirdly replaced under very. Very unusual appointment scenario where she was told she was going a position that she ultimately didn't get and the Attorney General Timothy Shay this very close confidante to directly replace her, and immediately immediately you saw the impact with what he did with that office. In terms of in that Roger Stone Case in in that Michael Flynn case working on behalf of criminal defendants, one of whom had pled guilty and one of whom had been convicted. And, in in both of those cases, the attorneys who are working on them for the DOJ resigned right Yup in one of the cases, there was outright resignation from the Department of Justice Than I. believe that that official is testifying before Congress this week I think. Otherwise prosecutors on those cases just stepped down from the cases, so you can see how these decisions are putting these online attorneys in between a rock and a hard place like making them choose. Whose side are you on? Yeah and their credit, the people who were working in the institution day-to-day have done what's right. It seems for the most part in terms of doing their jobs, and then when their jobs were thwarted. Doing the the crucial and important step of showing to some extent what was happening by stepping down, they created a scenario by which people were more aware of what this attorney general was doing, and how he was interfering in the levers of justice to protect the president, but also resulted in multiple letters from thousands of former department of justice officials in two thousand, five, hundred at this, who outright said this person is abusing his our, and you must go this person being the Attorney General Boy Embar, this person attorney, generally embarrassed, abusing his power and Moscow..

"Jeremy Stall is a senior editor at slate covers the Department of Justice and he spends a lot of his time thinking about one specific corner of the justice system, the southern district of New York Sdn y the most important thing to know about sdn wise that it is historically known for its independence. The SDN Y so independent that a prosecutor President Clinton appointed to this office ended up investigating him, and it's even got a nickname. The sovereign district of New York which comes from the fact that it is. Considered itself almost an independent entity from the Department of Justice whereas every other US attorney's office. Does Not I think it's fair to say that this independent streak it hasn't been appreciated by president trump or the current attorney general. That became clear this past weekend as Jeffrey Berman, who'd been the lead prosecutor at Sdn y was dismissed in a confusing to day episode, so it's interesting, the people who were hoping in seeking to maintain the independence of this office. Some of them were disappointed with Jeffrey Berman's appointment Jeffrey. Berman did the very unusual step of interviewing personally with Donald Trump for this position when he first got this job. Job and I was seen as that. No, no, that was that was a no. No, this was bad form for the president and the prosecutor that was a basically an unprecedented move by the president of the fact that he tried to very early on speak to this guy, interview the sky, and and make sure he was part of the team of ostensibly, that was very unusual. It's funny because. Jeffrey Berman replaced Preet Berrara who had led the office in famously left in this kind of suspicious cloud, a lot of confusion back and forth about whether he was fired or resigned and now. A couple of years later, the very same thing seems to have happened with Berman. What happened here was Jeffrey Berman I. See the parallel that you're about Mary in that this was this surprise. It was an abrupt. It happens you know. June Friday afternoon kind of caught everyone off guard. The Jeremy also see something else. How in the years since Pre Pera left office? The rules and norms about how this department operates have gotten twisted. How the sudden firing of one US attorney could be an anomaly, but now years later seems to fit into a larger pattern. So so with free. It felt like okay well they can. They can excuse themselves for this because it's not completely abnormal to. Replace these positions at the start of administration. In this case, you know, we know that that office has been investigating trump's kurt personal attorney Rudy Giuliani i. mean it sounds like what you're saying is when pre Perot is fired. There was smoke, yes, but now with Jeffrey Berman. There's fire, yes..

"So Aaron Greg. A few weeks ago we talked to you about the small business administration which was going to be giving out loans from the paycheck protection program and these loans were going to go to needy small businesses. What has happened since we talk then so over the past month the SBA has really done. Its best to scale up this program like it never has before. They're used to dealing with these sort of geographically contained disasters. This win sort of happening everywhere at once. And what's happened? Is they've become kind of overwhelmed with applications so there are two programs the show opposite problems. The first is the paycheck protection program. Which is having money flow out quickly. It's through the private banks that are doing this. The problem there is that a lot of people are getting money. That don't really need it. The patient protection program has spent several hundred billion dollars. And we're seeing quite a few large companies employing more than five hundred people with massive valuations and actual options on the private market. That are getting paycheck. Protection program loans billions of dollars going to these large companies like shake shack and Ashford hospitality. Trust it's a real estate investment firm that are getting these loans when they're really not small businesses on the other end of the spectrum. You have the disaster loan program which is really meant for the smallest businesses. Those that don't employ a lot of people. And they just need an economic lifeline to survive that program is run directly by the government and it is just overwhelmed by demand. They've gotten depending on who you talk to. We know it's at least three million applications. Some say it's closer to ten million. What we know for sure is that they're completely overwhelmed. And they've only process about one percent of the applications. They've got a really after two months. So there are a lot of businesses that have been actively seeking out these loans. That have not gotten any money at all businesses. That really need them. That's right quite a few and in fact the vast majority are still waiting for that money. If there is the sense that the small business administration is really strained. That there's not enough money for everyone that a lot of needy businesses aren't getting what they need. Then why is it that you have these examples of these larger companies publicly traded companies multi billion dollar corporations that are actually these loans so that is an example of how the paycheck protection program works because they relied on private banks to dole out the money and to decisions about? Who GETS THE MONEY? What we find is that the people who end up getting the most loans and getting them. The most quickly are the ones who have an inside track with the banker conflict of interest rules. Don't apply there in every town. In every city across America they're well well-connected community bankers who in many cases will dole out these funds to their friends. And there's very little oversight from the SBA this point. One egregious example of this. Is The Los Angeles Lakers the basketball team that they got a loan from the government? That's right the cap on employees to get a paycheck protection program. Loan is five hundred. That means that any business with less than five hundred employees in some cases. Even if you have more than you can get an exception of the rules for this program were formed over really decades is different businesses lobbied for loopholes here and there so what we're seeing is that it really is possible for a very wealthy well to do business to get one of these loans while there are other businesses that maybe aren't as well connected. I don't know how to work the banking system. Your mom and pop shops. That are still trying to figure the system out. And I've also seen some examples of companies where they've essentially applied for these loans through their franchises or through their different properties or a location. That even though this is a huge national or international company that has billions of dollars that when they apply through their smaller locations and imply from forty different properties that it looks like a bunch of small businesses that are just individually receiving loans even though it adds up to be much more than that. That's right there are certain. Rules where franchises can basically get loans on their own. What you could end up with is just these small tendrils of a larger business that have found a way to qualify as an independent business. When in reality they may not be they may be directly owned by the parent company. They may get direct financial support from the parent company and the profits from that business may go up to the parent company so I think it really gets at the question. Of what defines you know small business if someone is associated or owned by a larger national chain. Are you a mom and pop shop or you? Part of a large corporation. So has there been a public acknowledgement from the government. That this is a problem that some of these companies should not have been receiving this money after seeing some large companies like shake shack. Were getting these loans. The government sort of went back and for lack of better word modified the rules some extent what the Treasury Department did a few weeks ago is it came out and said large businesses that are publicly traded and have access to capital markets may not qualify under the spirit of the law certain people on the P P may have not been clear and understanding the certification so we will give people the benefit of the doubt. We're GONNA put fake you out. Explain the certification. If you pay back the loan right away you won't have liability to the SBA and treasury because you're relying on businesses to basically make a good faith certification that they need one of these loans. The Treasury Department is saying a business that is publicly traded has a lot of cash available and could potentially get alone. Elsewhere really doesn't qualify under that so we saw after that regulation was put out. Is that quite a few businesses sort of turned and said we're going to return the loans Ashford hospitality trust announced. It would pay back the loans after being the subject of a lot of media criticism Lindblad expeditions and Exotic Cruise Company. That runs the National Geographic. Exotic cruises also paid back at Sloan. Several businesses think are worried about the legal implications of having taken that money. Especially now that Treasury has said you know. We're giving you a warning on this. There are severe consequences for people who don't attests properly. This certification others are sitting on it. company called. Cpi aerostructures is not said whether they would return the loan. This is a defense contractor. That had quite a bit of cash on hand. Last time they reported it. They received one They're plenty of other companies. That have said you know what we're on fine legal footing at the time that we applied there was no treasury department rule in place. So we're just GONNA wait this out. Companies that have chosen to ignore that warning they could be audited by the SBA by the IRS and in extreme cases you could see them being investigated by fraud divisions in the Department of Justice. There are several enforcement mechanisms of the government has when people effectively get access to government money that they should not have access to and they're very serious penalties for that and let me just say. I'm going to be putting out an announcement this morning that for any loan over two million dollars the SBA will be doing a full review of that loan before there is loan. Forgiveness will make sure that. What was the intent for? Taxpayers is fulfilled here so at the end of the day. How much money for these small businesses has essentially been given out so far? And how much is left like? Are we kind of near to scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point so the money has already run out once it will run out again and then it'll just be a question of whether Congress wants to reallocate it? I think now we're seeing Congress being very very skeptical of direction this program. They're going to have a lot of questions next time. It comes up about whether we should again. Allocate billions of dollars for this Aaron. Greg writes about business.

"On today's show Cory Booker drops out of the presidential race. The United States asked apple to unlock the Pensacola shooters iphone and then some headlines. Three weeks out from the first twenty twenty primary voting in Iowa another candidate has decided to exit the race. Senator Hitter Cory Booker who did not qualify for two debates in a row announced that he was leaving the crowded field on Monday that means that the most diverse primary field and history has lost another candidate of color earlier today. I'm suspending camping. President with the same spirit with which it began. It is my faith in us. Hate us together as obation that we share common pain and common problems that can only solve with a common purpose and a sense of common cost loss so now I recommit myself to the work. I can't wait to get back on the campaign trail and campaign as hard as I can't ever is eventual nominee and or candidates often down the valley. We can't not mention it but the music in the video is distracting. I wish that they had that anyway. That was the the video that Senator Booker put out Monday about leaving the race. He also said that the campaign needed more money to be able to scale up and win and that given even that and the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate. This seems like a good moment for him to leave. The trail. relatable impeachments a lot I need money yes good time to leave. Yeah I mean we can. We can hear him out on that Booker. Throughout this presidential campaign focused his message on positivity and he also had a pretty solid criminal justice package of policies he endorsed a gun licensing program which some of the other candidates picked up as well along the way and he also got a lot of flack for focusing on positively And that was from me included. Looted I I think that it's a really good message but it did feel a little weird For it to be two thousand twenty and in the reality we're living in to focus on you know the words we're using. Yeah yeah debate since it felt a little distracting. So yeah it. Just didn't breakthrough booker was making this argument that he could reassemble the Obama coalition but he never really cracked act into that top tier bowling and early states and overall and a lot of voters seemed to really like him but one of the major issues that he had is that he never really could climb with African American voters peeling off from former vice president. Joe Biden binds. been resilient no way that I think. A lot of campaigns weren't necessarily expecting and when you look at the rest of what what people think is typically Democratic Coalition Young Voters Latino voters as well a lot of them in pulling have been interested in Biden and some of the other candidates is not named booker and that was just. It wasn't really moving for him and to go back to the money thing for just a second throughout Booker's time running in twenty nine thousand nine. He raised a total of about twenty two point one million dollars which to put in perspective on the whole is less than what Senator Bernie Sanders. Buddha judge individually each pulled in in just the fourth quarter of last year and The primary you know it waits for no man. So keep on chugging debate coming up tonight this time. It's an Iowa Jersey Jersey Drake University. We've got Biden. Buddha Judge Warren Sanders Club Ajar. And Thomas Dyer. What are we thinking is going to happen? Well let's talk really quickly about a couple of broad things since the last time we checked in with the Wad heads out there It's not gonNA stink any it might if I keep trying. This is the smallest stage that the candidates have been on the farthest whilst amount of people and the last time that we had one with fewer candidates we got a lot of substantive and pretty heated back and forth in in a way that I think we both thought was pretty good interesting. Now this is going to be the last one before. The Iowa caucuses on February third and the race as far as we know appears to be really really really really close there. Yeah and one of the last time we talked twenty twenty. We were discussing the Budi bump but hasn't there been Budi slump in in a way. Yes I mean. All these candidates are sort of jostling rustling. And you know they're they're yeah they're one there to three There were two recent Iowa polls with Buddha judge very much still in the mix in Des Moines Register poll will sanders was actually in the lead by Warren. The Buddha judge than Biden and in one on Monday for monmouth Biden was first followed by Sander's Buddha Judge and Warren. I think that any of them could could reasonably win. which is making things a little bit more tense in the closing weeks before voting and maybe at this debate but in terms of like what we actually see you? You know from all the candidates on the debate stage I would bet that we see more sanders and Biden back and forth. They've been the two that throughout the year have sort of been the number one and number two nationally nationally and in many of the early state sanders game momentum in the last few months and then with Iran becoming part of the twenty twenty campaign rhetoric. He's kind of zeroed in on Biden's prior prior support for the Iraq war. I think it's a fight that he really really wants to have. And then we might also see more of the kind of TRIFECTA Klobuchar Buddha Judge Warren Warren arguments from last time. That'd be my best. Guess Right now I for one think I'm just ready for people start voting. How many more times can we hear this little like? Thankfully the last one before the caucuses and then you know will actually have a result to point to one of the things that we should talk about before we move on is the story. That's been kicking around around about Warren and Sanders the cheat sheet version of it I think is just the easiest for now and I think people can read about it if they want to go more in depth. Because because I for one thing it's a little bit over hyped. Basically what happened is the two of them. The ideologically the closest in the primary race in different in a number of ways but the people who are honest to God friends had this meeting in two thousand eighteen. It was just the two of them. We knew about the meeting for over a year but what was reported on Monday from a number of anonymous sources initially was that in that Conversation Sanders expressed to Warren. That he did not believe a woman could win the presidency against trump sanders sanders then denied that that was the case. Seems to be some sort of miscommunication misunderstanding from him. And some other sources versus what her interpretation was of it and what other sources interpretations were of it anyway. Warren later confirmed but confirmed that that's what Sanders said but she sounded not too perturbed by the conversation. Yeah I've said this on twitter already but the reality is I just don't care about this. I find it to be a complete waste of everyone's time I think if it's dominating news recycled it's like Have we learned nothing You know and I think that voters feel the same way like no one is sitting at home like wrapped wondering what's going to happen with their friendship. I I doesn't matter. People WanNa know you know. Are they going to be in debt forever as a student loan crisis ever GONNA end. Are we going to war. I mean there are things that are far more pressing and to be distracted by a conversation that happened two years ago and also have no bearing on where we are now really Just it feels like a big misstep in a big waste of everyone's time. Yeah and I mean. I found found the whole process on Monday. A little icky particularly before a debate. In which you know that by nature of how those debates work and the moderators that they're inherently looking for these kinds highs of conflicts because that is an easier route to take than necessarily discussing all the major issues all the time. Like you said this. This was a meeting that happened a long time ago could be different understandings based on what I've read in the people sort of describing it But it it got me thinking about a broader thing that in a position as a reporter and especially report of the does campaign trail stuff that is sort of like day in day out. You know we are not always the good guys to voters and hey super super cognizant of that Reporters just have different incentives. And all those like if you get a piece of news and you get something that it is dramatic within that piece of news that is like the greatest thing in the world and the pressures are just different than they are for somebody else who processes all this information wants is out there. It is what it is. You have an editor if you tell that editor like hey. I found this out about a private meeting. They're going to be like right. That shit immediately. Yeah but the goal four reporters differentiates from the goal. That like you is a listener or other prospect voters in your lives may have so I just I think in these situations. It's always important to keep in mind that as his primary goes on. There could be other days like this. These candidates are trying to beat each other after all and the last last two presidential primaries did not get as nasty as two thousand eight did and look how that turned out. I'm pretty sure people still voted for Obama. Yeah I mean if if my memory serves correct wrexham from several times right exactly so we'll check in with you again. Entering twenty tomorrow in our debate recap but for now. Just stay out.

"bill barr" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"Hear it directly from him not filtered through bill Barr who had his own misleading characterization of it but from the man who did the work himself last year on this program you said there's a very real prospect than on the day president trump leaves office that he would be indicted the justice department you said would do that this week the US attorney's office in New York concluded its investigation into campaign finance and there were no charges that related to him it does this prove your predictions wrong that this case is closed no not at all I mean it's been clear you're from Bob Muller that he felt in the justice department feels bound by this office of legal counsel opinion that you can't indict at a sitting president but he is a essentially unindicted co conspirator he's been identified as individual one as the person who directed Michael Cohen to commit this fraudulent campaigns game and I assume that all this means in terms of the Southern District of New York is that the case will be reopened when he leaves office providing the statute of limitations has not run and the justice department will have to weigh whether to indict the former president from my point of view if the evidence supports that he should be indicted hi and it's certainly the view of the justice department's reflected that date meant that Donald Trump was the one who coordinated and directed that illegal scheme and why should Michael Cohen to go to jail but the guy who did the direction and the coordination himself of a justice he is not above the law he may have a temporary reprieve while he occupies that office but I think the justice department have to seriously consider reopening the case if that's what it requires and indicting him when he leaves office you alleged this week that the Attorney General bill Barr intervened to stop this investigation or may have done that you have any evidence to support that well I have an alleged that he did that what I have said is that Congress ought to find out and make sure there was no intervention by bill bar or main justice to bring about essentially a political closure of that case now I don't know that that's the case but one of the concerns that I've had is when Bill bark has to fight in the Senate that he believes that the president could have made the molar investigation go away anytime you wanted if you thought it was unfair it's logical to conclude he also feels the president can make any of these other cases go away if he deems them unfair and and that is not our understanding or anyone else's of the law the president is not above the law and we're going to do our oversight to make sure that none of these cases are made to go away to protect the president all right congressman thank you very much we'll be back in a minute.

"I don't you know, the letter is a bit snippy. And then he says, and I think it was probably written by one of his staff people. Do you think Bob Muller didn't have the power of the pen over this letter that you describe as a, you know, something that's shouting missive? It doesn't matter who wrote the first draft. Bob Muller signed it just like, do you think Bill are wrote that four-page summary himself? No, I thought that was kind of snitty. Yeah. And. The word was snitty. But somebody else drafted it. And then he probably edited it and made it his own. It's a silly silly thing to say who would reminds me of something else. Rudy Giuliani say there's many things you can say about Muller among them. You could say war hero. And did a thankless job. But of all the criticisms he is not an uncomfortable. He's person he's extraordinarily careful. And so I saw similar to this Rudy Giuliani. When talking about some aspect of the Muller report. And how Muller came to this conclusion about or lack of conclusion about obstruction? I heard really Honey say yet that section of the report, I bet Muller didn't read it, very carefully. There's no way. There's no way. And times to the point where he was probably blurry eyed at three o'clock in the morning, but there's no question. There's one other thing from the hearing to there's we have a listener Jesse who wrote in and asked us why Bill bar wasn't pressed about Senator van halen's questions of Bill Barr. From a previous hearing, quote, and I will discuss that decision after Muller. Support your conclusion, I don't know other. Bob Muller supported my conclusion, and Jesse writes, it seems like van halen's question and answer are harder for bar to dance around. What I think Jesse is asking is why didn't the senators push more on that. Because this is consistent with the conversation. We're having which is it's incredibly clear that bar knew exactly what Muller thought of his summary. And that Muller was not a fan of it. I agree. I think this is also clear dissembling is also trying to make it seem like there was not, you know, huge amount of daylight between bar and Muller on this particular. Score. So I don't get it. It wasn't necessary. Clearly, you know, an ordinary person understanding the question would say, yeah, I think there are probably some disagreements in fact, they Bill bar said at the press conference before the release of the report rod Rosenstein, and I disagree with an disagreed with and continue to disagree with some of the analysis. Bob muller. Especially in the law and how expansive executive authorities. So I don't I don't get why you would sort of leave a misimpression here. But I do think that if you're if you're looking at the question of perjury or the crime of lying to congress that this is even more ambiguous than the exchange with Krist, and it would be difficult to trust the kennel. But it's this thing we keep coming back to both with respect to the president and other people in the White House. And now with the attorney general we should expect something more than behavior that comports with the criminal standard. Yeah. That shouldn't be the question is the question shouldn't be the attorney general it's fine as long as he didn't commit crime. If a judge asked you any of these questions when you were allying prosecutor, or if any of the people you've supervised gave this kind of answer repeatedly during a court hearing that a congressional hearing turned court hearing, I would expect to get a call from the judge and say, you know, you had a prosecutor in here. No doubt who was being too cute by half. You need to talk to that person. And make sure that doesn't happen again. And that person would lose credibility in that courtroom for the rest of that proceeding that trial and maybe for the rest of their career..

"There is no way know if intent means anything, right? And and and again, our argument on the show has not been intent means there's not a crime. It means in tempings, it's tough. But when somebody communicates to you three weeks before you do it immediately before you do it immediately after you do it. And then the two days after that, it is really really hard for you to step up on the stand and go. Yeah. I have no idea. I do not know if he supports my conclusion, you did know that and to me that is unambiguous we autumn everybody. It's over. I I I really really do look like as we know through all of this, right? Like, remember, how you felt the first two days after bars letter came out regarding the Muller report, the I we came on here. And and told you that letter was deliberately misleading and hang on the narrative is going to change. And and the narrative changed when the evidence came out. It was even worse than we could have possibly thought. I it I think like I am tempted. The show notes may be Bill Barr show title may be Bill bar maybe out of a job by the time. You get this. I believe that. I look I'm not, and I don't think he will be out of a job by the time this this show drops. But I do think that we are headed to a critical juncture, I who is the mysterious deity that you think is going to make this happen. Like, I get that on substance. It sounds. I totally agree. Like, I it was never a doubt that he actually totally lied and stuff. I just thought it was going to be some, you know, weasel words that get him out of it. But like even putting that aside and saying, okay, it's not he's can't weasels way out of this. He definitely perjured himself who is the person that's going to make some consequences happen because I that frankly, I don't see that in our world anymore. So what how does that work? Yeah. Let's process depends. So I I'm glad you asked step one. We get a letter from God that says this right? Like what it depends on somebody who is independent of Trump? Right. So so here's what needs to be. And I'm going to talk about a positive sign from the hearing that that I'm curious about your commentary on it. It needs to be the opposite of Lindsey Graham, right? Like, we're we're all watching what Lindsey Graham is doing. Here is somebody who called Trump a Kook and unfit to be president in two thousand sixteen right? And is now turned into Trump's fullest deepest throated defender. And and the reason for that is stunningly obvious, right? Lindsey Graham is standing for re-election in South Carolina in twenty twenty and he estimates that his likelihood of losing a primary to a. Stronger. Trump supporter is greater than his likelihood of losing a general election to a democrat. So he's become a howler monkey turned into the mouth of sarin. I get it. Yeah. Yep. Exactly. Right. So who's good who's good AMT tie, Lindsey Graham, right? Well, we already talked about Mitt Romney on on the Senate Judiciary committee a really really good candidate. And somebody who asked really good questions. The only Republican who asked was Ben Sasse from Nebraska. Right. And again, Ben Sasse is in no danger of losing his job. Right. Ben Sasse is no liberal. He's no friend of the show. But I believe right watching and listening to his questions. Right. I believe Ben's as who also is on the Senate intelligence committee that he's. Concerned about an atmosphere in which in order to be a Trump supporter. You now have to say, you know, I'm being hostile foreign powers bankrolled by billions of dollars are going to hijack our elections. Like what you going to do about it? Right. And SAS asked the question right of Bill bar. He said what imagine he said, I won't clarity here. If if China is hacking elections, right? Can a foreign government pay to have Democratic Party operatives on its payroll? And and what was not right. And he did not let that right?.

"I I I like I like the way you put it on your SIM episode, and and briefly on here, which was a screen. Teaming fit about you know, Obama's attorney general meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac of of you know, out side of Air Force One for eighteen seconds versus Bill Barr who has obliterated the light. Right. Like you. You have to explain to people now to to Trump supporters that the attorney general is not the president. I wear. Here's somebody literally the attorney general in the. Ten the name. He's not the attorney president attorney for the president. Yeah. No that that's absolutely right. And it's an embarrassment. And you know, you you and I differ on this. I think but I it I think Bill bars career is done. I think there's gonna be consequences. I think he's going to resign. I think he's going to be forced out. I think it's I think that's that's gonna built and good luck. You'll have fun in that reality Andrews in some other dream world. That's fun. So that must be nice, but over here on planet earth where there's no adults left. I'm I'm thinking, I mean, the only way I think he would possibly be done is if they decide like his mission is over like, he's. You've done your duty. You may now retaliating like he's a undercover agent, and then he just gets to explode the the process of Justice and then leave like just walk away. Like a like a suicide bomber almost but one that gets away with it that kind of thing. The opposite of that. And not. I think it's just bombs. I guess the suicide part is his career's over. But like he did the job. He did what he needed to do. So that's that's the only way I see him leaving. But I don't think there's enough adults left. You know, because the Republicans had a hearing about why Hillary was not investigated more in also who's going to investigate the investigators investigate the investigators of the estimators. That's what they're hearing was. So all right, but we'll get all to to that and more. I am excited that you know, it sounds like you definitely think bar embarrassing himself. And I can't wait to hear an actual sober opinion. Based on what the position attorney general used to be you know, and talk about it from that angle and I'm excited for that historical trip down memory lane. But we'll see what the real world holds for us. I we need to make a couple of nouncement. We are going to do the patriot QNA it is time again, it's gonna be may as the memes. All say, it is may and that'll be this Sunday. That's the fifth at six PM eastern three PM Pacific time. So that's when we'll do the live Q and A as a reminder because those are the only two time zones that matter if you fly over country, this is a liberal elite assed snob show, you can figure out when it I mean, we it's really at any time if you incorporate all time zone. So it said every single time at that. We could tell I have not yet seen avengers and game. But we can tell you've seen a movie involving gay time a time traveling space wizard recently, so. So that just reminded that's on YouTube. Everybody can come watch. You can come in the chat and participate, but only our patrons get to.
