William Barr Should've Known About FBI Corruption

"So William Barr, do you think he knew what was going on? I just don't know Dennis how he could not know. As I said, this involves numerous FBI field offices with approval at the top of the FBI. There was something going on at the time called operation cold snap. We know the FBI was surveilling chatter on social media platforms. That's actually how this whole hoax came together. And so how could Bill Barr not know about this? Like I said, it wasn't just some rogue agent out of some weird field office in the middle of Michigan.

James O'Keefe: Project Veritas Is Going to Keep Going

"If this was a case about let's say The Daily Beast right That got a hold of Donald Trump Jr.'s diary or whatever And the diary had some explosive things in it which would reflect poorly on Donald Trump The Daily Beast would be celebrated worldwide and if the Donald Trump administration were still in office had Bill Barr get secret warrants against The Daily Beast This would be the water gate of our time Do you have any doubt about that But the fact that the political roles are reversed and they just don't like your journalism because you expose them all the time They're trying to sweep this thing under The Rock We can't let that happen Yeah I think they're like schoolyard bullies These are these federal prosecutors What the Ivy League schools they hide behind the bag They think they're a big tough man because they can rate a journalist home But what I found about these bullies they've been doing this team my whole life I mean this is not my first rodeo I'll be my last rodeo I was arrested in New Orleans all those U.S. attorneys resigned and disgraced and lost their law license for what they did to me and other people that they railroaded And then every lawsuit they filed against me they lose and we filed a loss against The New York Times and had a judge in the Supreme Court of New York rule against The New York Times So I think the most important thing Dan is to keep going and to be brave and to not back down when you're punched in the face by a schoolyard bully but to stand up we've done nothing illegal We don't break the law There's no evidence of any illegal behavior And to your point a diary since when do the feds investigate this I don't even like even It wasn't like a Cohen We did a hypersonic missile right Right it just it was an ugly story in that It made people look bad It was not a national security incident You didn't break it to anyone's house We didn't publish it

Kash Patel's Thoughts on the Hunter Biden Laptop Story

"I want to get to this the Hunter Biden laptop story. Just tell us your thoughts on where this all kind of stands right now. So for my best understanding, there is an open active criminal investigation by a United States attorney in the Department of Justice against this. Now, what should have happened is when the New York Post and all these other companies broke the story as true and accurate, there should have been an immediate exploitation of that entire laptop in its contents by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. What happened was to continue politicization of the national security apparatus. Hunter Biden, we can't touch him. He's not Don Junior. We can't make up stories about him, even though it looks like Hunter Biden is actually a criminal. Let's bury this thing. Let's not let it out during a presidential election cycle. Thanks to the fake news media. And oh, by the way, all these people, remember the 51 intelligence officials, Brennan, Comey and clapper, all these things. That was one of the most fraudulent acts ever, ever. During a presidential election cycle, they knew it. And Politico was co-conspirators in that. Oh, political. Everybody, not just political. It was the politicos. We did a whole show on this. Okay. And you're right. They all were, but the first headline to be the most deceiving was Politico. Just the way they wrote it. And as you know, it just kind of started that funnel. And everyone then rewrote the political art. Then you're right. That's all they need. They need a headline. It was Politico said, laptop is Russian disinformation, comma, 50 Intel agents, former the way they wrote it. It was like so click baity like a captured the top of funnel. And you can't tell me, Charlie, and I know you agree with me that that didn't change voters minds in the middle. The 100 million Biden quoted in the debates. Right. And so how do you think this is going to play? I mean, is it realistic that hunters getting indicted? I mean, where does that, look, the little print media that I still read that's accurate incredible. It looks like he's going to get some form of indictment.

Kash Patel on the Unusual Way the FBI Went After James O'Keefe

"I want to first start with the James O'Keefe story. I think you might have heard a little bit about this for sure. I was really pushing James to understand part of this, but so you were a former federal prosecutor. How unusual is it to send a private warrant and then a gag order to a company? Is that a usual practice? So I was a terrorism prosecutor for a while and we did a lot of these types of national security high profile cases that we had to keep certain things under wraps. But terrorism. Yeah, so that's exactly the difference. James O'Keefe and then terrorist, right? So that's exactly the difference. And we would go to certain providers in extreme cases to be like, we just got to keep this hush us. And we would always get the judges say so. You know, you can't just unilaterally like run amok with the DoJ. So are these warrants or subpoenas? Because the subpoena does not require a judge oversight. Is that correct? So we're going to get into the weeds a little bit here. Okay, so there's subpoenas. That you got to go before you can get a grand jury subpoena. You can go to an article three judge and get a subpoena for whatever homes. But can that be I didn't just print out a piece of paper that is a subpoena like I need your emails or something? So there's national security letters, right? The FBI has certain authorities under the law that don't need a requirement of going to a federal judge. They can just say this issue is of a natural security concern. We want to go get the data, the call logs, the call, text messages, and all that stuff from companies X, Y, and Z while we investigate this matter. That they can do that. If they did that in James O'Keefe's case, again, comparing terrorism to James O'Keefe, right? Someone they just don't like who's an American civilian. Would be outrageous. And also, I think, unconstitutional.

"With us right now is cash Patel, website is fight with cash dot com. He has several lawsuits that he is engaged in against all the worst people on the planet. We'll talk about that. You're a former federal prosecutor. You understand how this whole world works. I want to ask your thoughts on the news yesterday. We didn't touch on this at all. Donald Trump filed a lawsuit yesterday. Yeah, and it's probably hopefully he's not listening. It's his best one yet. No. Is that right? I think so. It's the most conclusive comprehensive lawsuit. It's basically if you took the russiagate investigation with Devin and I ran and looked at it from a criminal perspective with Donald Trump has done is said, okay, how do I encompass everyone from Comey, Clinton, clapper, Brennan, and all the whole DNC crew on down? How do I get them civilly in federal court and the way you do it is you utilize this thing called RICO racketeering enforcement and corrupt organizations. We used to prosecute gangs under RICO's criminals. But what most people don't realize is RICO also has a civil function. So what he did was he took the RICO statute, which is permissible under by law and said, these guys orchestrated the largest criminal enterprise in U.S. history, but I'm suing them on my civil side of the house for, I don't know, $75 million. The whole point, right, is to get to discovery. Yes. Well, then also civil can lead to criminal. Absolutely. It can, but I think John Durham has got that covered. We can talk about that later, but I think what the president wanted to focus on was finally say, I'm not going after onesies and twosies here. I'm bringing everybody in, one federal lawsuit.

Why Bill Barr Is a Patriot

"The book by general Barr and since you've read it, I'll ask you about it. It seems to me to be the most comprehensive case for constitutionalism that I've read between two covers. Did you come away with that view that, my gosh, we are lucky to have him. I hope he comes back. I don't know if he'll come back for a third a third time. I'm a big admirer of Bill Barr. He's a true patriot. He didn't need to come back and undergo all the criticism and attacks that he endured, but he believed it was important to restore the Department of Justice to a nonpartisan place where the law is respected and honored rather than politics and he's a smart guy with broad experience. And I found a lot of the different things that he wrote about in the book very instructive and actually talked to my staff. I said, well, let's dig a little deeper. For example, in some of his ideas about how to deal with big tech,

So even though Bill Barr had written a book critical of Donald Trump, even though he said that Donald Trump's theories about whether or not the election could be overturned were wrong, even though he talked about how Trump fired him, you would think that even listeners on CNN would be okay with Jake tapper at least interviewing him. They were not. In part because he essentially said Bill Barr did that as between Trump and Biden. He would still vote for Trump. Is that not give you pause about his ability to ever be commander in chief again? Well,

"Here's a little bit of president Trump cut one. Here's the former president with Mark Levin, the great one on life liberty and Levin on Fox News. It was kind of a freewheeling conversation and man. President Trump is still on point and as strong as ever. If you did a sample of a thousand people, typical good American people that love our country. They are, they can't believe what they're witnessing at the border. And some of the people are really bad. These are stone cold killers that other countries don't want and they're sending them in. From their prisons, prisons are being emptied out in other countries. This is not a majority. Sanctuary cities. This is not a majority. This stuff is really, really bad. And I think you're going to see a big, big victory for Republicans in the midterms. I think it's going to be very hard for them to come back that fast. They're using prosecutors all over the place to hurt people to hurt Republicans. I will say that Bill Barr certainly didn't do that. He certainly didn't. Hey, it was absolutely fascinating to watch.

Who Is Igor Danchenko?

"Let's start backwards. Last 48 hours, John Durham, who is appointed by Bill Barr, issued some indictments. One of the indictments that he issued was towards this new figure and you would know about him if you were really into this. But a guy by the name of Igor danchenko. Now Igor danchenko is supposed to be a Russian specialist. Igor danchenko is someone that formerly worked at the brookings institution a Dante is a Russian born U.S. based researcher. He worked at the brookings institution from 2005 to 2010, and he was a former official in Bill Clinton's State Department. And so danchenko's role was not really clear up until the last 48 hours. So the centerpiece of all of this, the centerpiece for the whisper campaign against Trump, the basis for to get Mueller and to spy on Trump was a document. It was a piece of work known as the dossier. The dossier was compiled by none other than former British spy Christopher Steele. But Christopher Steele compiled the dossier in what has always been a focus for those of us that have wanted to get the truth is who were his sources. Well, the main source, the main Russian source was Igor danchenko. Now, this dossier, this document, this summary, fraudulent one and fake one was then fed to the FBI and the press and was later used in fisa surveillance warrants against Trump aide Carter page, and then through surveilling Trump's pages communications, the Clinton Obama regime was able to spy on the Trump campaign.

Not making an excuse. Because i you know those words when mine but i made those statements based upon things that had been told to me by very good friends.

"bill barr" Discussed on Impeachment: A Daily Podcast

"The other thing though that when i was really shocked to find what i dug into the researchers we found things that bill barr had written and said publicly in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s he had he had been a g by the way of the united states from ninety one to ninety three And during that time and after bill really exposed himself as what i call a culture warrior if for example they in one speech he talked about. And i quote god's law. He decried bigotry against catholics. He wrote we are being pushed steadily off the battlefield and have been for the last few decades. What is our larger strategy for preserving the church and seeing prevail. How will we get back on the battlefield. He blasted what he called. And i quote the homosexual movement. He blasted militant secularists. That's a quote and he blamed those things essentially the downfall of society everything from mental illness drug addiction to suicide rates. So bill is really this old school extremist religious driven culture. Where i think it is important to say. He is not a member of this fringe group. Opus dei say that in the book. That's that's a persistent rumor. He's not part of that group however he absolutely was driven by this notion that the church needs to regain primacy not just in our private lives or religious lives but in public life to kind of put the bar trump relationship in the context of right and wrong and american history. Generally i think many americans. And i'll include myself in this still. Don't understand where the line really is supposed to be between an attorney. General being independent from the president who appoints them or serving the president's policy agenda. I mean eric holder. Talk about talked about having obama's back and certainly on civil rights and other key legal questions. They were philosophically aligned. You don't expect a joe biden to appoint a bill bar. And you don't expect a donald trump to appoint and eric holder and there could be many other examples. So where is that line. Let me propose this. There is a line between policy and prosecution. So as you say brian. Every president of course is going to appoint appoint an attorney. General who is generally aligned with him ideologically politically in that kind of thing and no attorney. General by the way has been pure as the driven snow. I don't argue that so if a new administration comes in and they say we want to emphasize this we want to be more aggressive or less aggressive when it comes to police reform we wanna be more aggressive or less aggressive when it comes to policing for opiates you name it across. The board that to me is all fair. Play where. I draw the line where the president should have zero interactions. Zero influence is in the prosecutorial function of doj. And if the president does try to cross that line the attorney general i believe has a duty to resist to fight back ultimately to resign if necessary but that line. The prosecution line was constantly breached as between trump and bar starting with trump himself on the motherboard. Where bar not just welcomed but made it happen extending over to the michael flynn case the roger stone case..

"I hope he's feigning. I mean either. He is ignorant or who's fading ignorant and he says i. I don't know what the law says. I mean and this is the interview with wolf blitzer. Then we'll just goes. You can't vote twice. I mean everybody knows that but bill was too afraid to publicly say anything different than what donald trump said right. There was this a similar thing where donald trump started suggesting. He had the power to move the election date which of course he does. Not only congress has that and nobody was asked about that in a public forum as well and said i haven't looked at what the constitution says there again. Either either he's ignorant feigning ignorance to appease donald trump and this all brings us to what you might consider bill bars original sin in corrupting the justice department and listeners. If you're just joining us my guest is former federal prosecutor and cnn. Legal commentator ellie hoenig. Whose new book is called hatchet man. How bill bar broke the prosecutors code and corrupted the justice department This sort of bill bar original sin. His misleading statement to the american people about the mullahs report before the american people. Got to look at it ourselves. So here's a thirty second centerpiece of that infamous statement. The report recounts ten episodes involving the president and discuss his potential legal theories for connecting those activities to the elements of an obstruction of fence after carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report and in consultation with the office of legal counsel and other department lawyers. The deputy attorney general and i concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of justice. Offense so ellie. How do you explain that statement in your book. He's in the bag for donald trump and he told us he was in the bag before he got the job. So we have to rewind here about six months before bill. Barbie came attorney general. So this is The middle of two thousand eighteen. It's obvious jeff. Sessions is a garner. Donald trump has publicly berating humiliating jeff sessions every day. The midterms are coming up. Bill bar sends in what i call the audition memo. This is a twenty page memo. Nobody asked him to write. He doesn't on his own. He sends it into doj. We now know it made its way to donald trump. We're bill barr says robert muller's theory of obstruction of justice is and i quote. Bill bar here fatally misconceived fatally meaning dead and donald trump sees. That of course is is light up. This is the guy i need. he chooses. Bill bar bill bar gets through on a almost straight party line vote and then he does exactly what he told us he was going to do. He guts the mother report. A he lies to us in that four-page and i use the word lie very carefully. You know in the law and the media. You don't just call someone a liar. I do it in the book. Because it's not just me. Robert mueller later accused bill bar misstating his conclusions and the facts and federal judges later found. The bill bar was disingenuous lack candor lack credibility you know all the polite ways of saying why so he lies about the first of all robert muller's findings regarding russia. Is there a criminal conspiracy. Robert muller's says no however. Russia tried to interfere with the election. They tried they did it to help. Trump trump's campaign knew about it. They expected to benefit from it and dozens of times..

"That. Yeah so i've seen those same reports where we're bar sort of stood up you know boldly to donald trump but some of the some of this reporting is coming explicitly from bill barr himself and his you know he always has these sort of Tales where he's the hero standing up to donald trump again asking us to forget the almost two years he's been doing nothing but defending donald trump. But one thing i do want to add is while bill bar sort of had this break from donald trump behind the scenes in december billboard and undermined his own sort of courageous stand when he when he sent his resignation letter to donald trump which was really fawning sycophantic letter where he praises. Donald trump is as bold courageous leader and he throws donald trump but very important concession. He says in the letter. Oh mr president. I've just as i've just informed. We continue to investigate the possibility of election fraud so we really sort of un does some of his own principled stance and allows donald trump. Just say oh. They're still looking folks. they're still. They're still investigating so even the time. Bill barr show some backbone undermined himself very quickly. Because i was struck by that to bar resigned later that month december last year reportedly while trump was considering fire him firing him over not being his hatchet man on election fraud. But barr wrote this as you call it. Sycophantic resignation letter. I'm going to read listeners. A few lines from it. Bill baugh wrote this is in quitting his job. He wrote to the president. Your record is all the more historic because you accomplished it in the face of relentless implacable resistance no tactic no matter how abusive and deceitful out of bounds. The nature of this campaign was the effort to cripple if not ouster administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion with russia unquote. So my question for you. Elliot's why did bar benches on his way out the door to a self image rehab campaign ben disney like that to a president that he believed at the time in december was trying to subvert our electoral process. It's a great question and and you know it's sort of the two faces of bill bar right. The rarely seen courageous side. Which occasionally flash itself and then the sycophantic side and that letter. I want listeners. Understand just how -rageous that letter is for an attorney general to wax on about how courageous and bold as president has been end to lash out at the president's perceived political enemies. I mean this is one of the main points of my book that attorney general should not and historically do not overtly play politics and sort of parrot political rhetoric like we see from bill bar in this letter by the way one other thing that jumped out to me about that letter. I don't know if you have happened up the whole thing in front of you but you're gonna have to read towards the very very end. Essentially the last sentence of the substantive part before he gets to the happy holidays part where even mentions the thousands of women and men prosecutors investigators who work the justice department who make the justice department You know operate day to day. And i think that's sort of very typical of bill. Bars approach where he had this arrogance and i and i laid out in the book and i'm not just this isn't just an ad hominem attack the way bill bar approaches job showed a real arrogance a real disregard for the what i call the real prosecutors which i once was a real disregard for them..

U.S. To Donate 500 Million Doses to Global COVID-19 Vaccine Supply

"Speaking at the g. Seven summit on thursday president biden said this quote the united states will purchase a half a billion doses of pfizer cove nineteen vaccine to donate to nearly one hundred nations. That are in dire need in the fight against this pandemic. that's a historic step the largest single purchase and donation of covid nineteen vaccines by any single country. Ever unquote He said these vaccines will start being shipped in august as quickly as they can be manufactured. Two hundred million doses To be delivered this year with another three hundred million in the first half of twenty twenty two bill what what do you make this As a foreign policy initiative exercise in soft power. I think it's it's great. I'm glad the biden administration is doing this. Look at the position. we're in now. Just as opposed to a few months now that we're now in the position to donate these extra vaccines. I think it also shows is our editorial points out that We can help the world with their vaccinations without having to suspend intellectual property rights. And so for some of the more dubious ways that they want to do it. So i think there are a few questions you could ask about the distribution and how you know how we're going to choose but it it's it's a it's a great move it you know. It speaks to the best of america and we can do it in. It's it's it's it's a great thing for the world

"Or if you'RE GONNA love this system train folks in madge tree that firearm okay. So getting back to that now you know I think. We've kind of summed up. Why flee the Flynn cases a big deal? Flynn was going to break down and expose the entire swamp for what it was. The Obama team couldn't have it the FBI team didn't like either McCabe some personal animus we know against Flynn McCabe. Mckay made Flynn target and public enemy number. One they had a prosecute Flynn. They had nothing on Flint. So they just made it up with this dossier in order to hide them using a fake dossier paid for by Hillary to a to prosecute and targeted decorated lieutenant general in the US military. They said they didn't get their dossier until September. They are lying. They are lying. You saw the date August tenth the same day. They opened up these on these three people which I believe also is a ruse. They're opening up on these three people in and they opened up a case six days later on Flynn to make it look like Flynn's not their primary target. When in fact he was on August ten. They had to shut him down before he shut them down. Now what are the key questions has been? Well how are we still getting all this information folks? I brought up on Friday and I'll bring up again. This is one of the biggest scam. What am I conference? Call me about this. He can't believe it 'cause he used informants all the time but he was in the gang squad. They investigated street gangs. The question now is if they're clearly using steel paid for by fusion managed by Hillary Clinton's team to generate false information.

It's just a nice moment for Americans as the great American sporting event for all the bad things that are going on right now. The economy's pretty good. We're still the greatest country on earth.

You know just enjoy it and then get back to the politics. Two MONTEMAR with today Monday morning but we also have this other great moment to president trump in the parade not to be still on giving up. Everybody's calling us so whatever. Call it the beast. President trump taken a lap with the secret service drivers in the Presidential Limo. Just an unbelievable moment. It's folks there's so much here I don't WanNa burn up a lot of your time with old secret service stories but there's a lot to pick apart in this wherever the president goes you'll notice there's a couple of cars behind him So the president took a laugh at Daytona. I'M NOT KIDDING. Get if you WANNA watch Youtube Joie Gino he took a lapped at Daytona in the Presidential Limo. Now many of you know I was a secret service agent in that section twice the transportation transportation section. That handles that I was. There is an agent. I went back as the whip. Where helped supervise the section under gs fourteen and that is the assignment of a lifetime. Ladies and gentlemen we are the only ones who drive the present United States agents. That's it we are the only ones who drive and to be picked for that assignment to take a pace car like rab around the track of all of these cars at America's race at Daytona. Really Cool folks. I I tell you it's one of those things you just tell your kids about forever and I love my job in the secret service and I rarely though wish I'd gone back yesterday's one of those days where I thought to myself you know what that would have been really cool. So president trump. You ever want to invite me in the limo for a trip like that. I will gladly take you up on the offer and noticed there were two cars behind them because you may say well. Why are we to suburbans behind him? Well folks you never leave the secret service ever. We don't leave the president no matter what whether he's taking a pace car lap or whatever that's the follow up vehicle that has the secret service agent Senate. We're not leaving them no matter what no matter what. We don't care where it is. That's a long track at Daytona. So that's why there were a couple of cars behind him all right now. I just thought I'd start off the show on a good note. That was a great. I got up by. Snap to attention. My elbows. Don't work very well. But they play in the national anthem and I was standing in my liver and my daughter walked in and thought it was weird. She was wondering why was standing and the national anthem is plenty of great event. Good job president trump. Very well done I. Let's get this the meat and potatoes about what happened on Friday. So the Department of Justice led by of course attorney general bill bars. Many of you know. Drop the case against Andrew. Mccabe for lying. I WanNa give you the what happened. What's really going on? And some alternate theories so there are a lot of you have been following this case. Don't totally lose. Because I know a lot of you are upset and you should be Andrew. Mccabe was the deputy director and then acting director of the FBI all the spy gate nonsense going on he was also intimately involved in the. Sham investigation into Hillary Clinton's abusive government or non government email and the sharing of classified information over non-government emails. He was essential player in this whole thing. Which want to be clear before I start this. I am not asking you not to be upset. A lot of you. Send me email. One Guy Bizarrely posted on my facebook mad at me than anti McCabe was in charge. As if I was the attorney Joe. Listen if that makes you feel better to take out your I did I did you. I'm not kidding I read this and I'm like what does he sent me. I spent two years of my life on covering this nonsense. I wrote two books about it. If that makes you feel better post away. I'm serious if it's Kinda some emotive moment that releases. The pain go right ahead. I'm just telling you I don't think this is over yet. Let's talk about what happened. I so I hunted through the Internet to find the best article to explain the behind the scenes machinations about what I think went on. And I think Andy McCarthy good friend of mine at National Review said it best. He's got a piece up. It'll be in the show notes. You can always find a map. Bongino dot com to email them to you. Every morning you can subscribe to our email list. Bongino DOT com slash newsletter. It's free of course we'll send you these great articles so the title is aptly. Why was Andrew McCabe? Why wasn't Andrew McCabe charged? Screwed that one up there folks. A couple of things happen to you. Let me tell you what happened. I with Andrew McCabe for those of you who missing the background story on October. Of Two thousand sixteen there was a leak to the Wall Street Journal reporter by the name of Devlin Barrett. The leak to the Wall Street Journal was about the existence of a case into the Clintons aid. You may say well everybody knew the FBI was investing cleanse. It hadn't been confirmed ladies and gentlemen and the FBI was doing. Its best to keep it under wraps the motives for which I believe are are multiple. I believe one of the primary motives is Jim. Komi was a Hillary Clinton supporter as we now know and did not want to damage her election chances a month a month before the election by indicating there was an open criminal investigation copy. Follow me because it's gets a little confusing but you'll understand what happened. And why the the spiral effect and the ball rolling down the hill after that so the FBI doesn't confirm the existence of the Clinton investigation until this October leak. Nobody knows who leaked it. Except one person Andrew McCabe why because McCabe leaked it. Andrew McCabe leaked the existence of the Clinton case to the Wall Street Journal through his attorney in the FBI that time who was in his office. Lisa page yes girlfriend of Peter Stroke. Who was the crossfire? Hurricane Agent Investigating President Trump via the FBI investigators FBI agent crossfire hurricane. They're having an affair. Those two so page is the primary witness in this case now fairly enough. You may be saying to yourself. Dan. This doesn't make any sense if Komi and the FBI at the higher up the higher up level or trying to protect Hillary Clinton right from this media. Oh my gosh she. Fbi Is Investigating Hillary Clinton. This'll be terrible month before the election. Why would McCabe leak it? The crux of the matter comes starts to come out now. Well Andrew McCabe 's wife had been running for office Joe McCabe for a State Senate position in Virginia and had taken lots of money from groups who are and people associated with Hillary Clinton. Don't make cave at the time. In October of two thousand sixteen is under intense scrutiny. For being one of the guys involved in the Clinton email investigation and they're saying hey. Why didn't this guy recused himself? Wife was obviously a beneficiary of the Clinton orbit money. It's only fair for an F. B. I. official of that level of importance to recuse himself. Why didn't he recused? Why didn't you recuse? Why didn't recuse? That keeps coming up so the leaked to the media was thought to be away for McCabe to make himself look better. Joe Is the audience referee here. Right here he's McCabe's leaking to Devon Barrett through LISA. Page it no. This investigation is still ongoing. In other words I wife running for office. That didn't affect anything right right right right. Yeah Yeah even. Though they hate trump McCabe thought leected to protect his personal reputation. That may make us look like he wasn't being influenced by this department of Justice pressure to shut this case down now right. That's another story out there that supposedly the DOJ was pressuring the FBI to bury this case. So now McCain's leaking it to make it look like look at me. I'm above this. Even though my wife ran and was beneficiary Clinton orbits support. I kept it open despite the Department of Justice pressure to shut it down. Okay everybody got the background background support on the man. Thanks for explaining okay. You got so October. Two Thousand Sixteen. The leak happens about the existence of the case in May of twenty seventeen the F. b. i. inspections division the equivalent of their.

"It's a new decade but a lot of our problems remain the same name. The earth is warming the glasses on. My face are old. They're they're not from my childhood despite Other suggestions to that contrary and I don't have contact lenses which is something that I'm going to fix soon. Oh and tech giant apple in the. US government are facing off again because of a locked inaccessible iphone in a criminal investigation. Okay Akilah do you WANNA unpack. What's going on here? Yeah I think the first thing is that people should know. I said that his glasses Jalen. They're not okay. Sorry abutted yourself. Yeah we're fine. The more important news Last month there was a shooting on a naval base. In Pensacola Florida. That left three dead and eight others wounded. The perpetrator was Saudi Arabian and was killed at the scene by law enforcement and since that time law enforcement has been attempting to access that shooters personal iphone for clues and Information Asian on how many people were involved or knew about it and if there are ties to some sort of international terrorist organization yesterday attorney. General William Bar called the shooting in an act of terrorism and asked apple in a press conference to assist with the investigation and apple is refusing to unlock the phone And obviously this isn't the first time apple has been in this sort of position right in the months following the two thousand fifteen San Bernardino terrorist attack. That left fourteen dead and twenty two others injured. The same issue came up with apple refusing to cooperate with the FBI's requests to decrypt data on the shooter's iphone. And this all gets us into an essential privacy debate can the tech company that enables all of your data access that data And give it to the police and what's to stop the police or tech company from overstepping here. Yeah I think it's an interesting sort of philosophical question to Well Apple's defense is that you know one if they start unlocking iphones for law enforcement. There's a high risk of abuse read the entire history of this country To that data isn't just your own which is to say that you know if view hacked into my iphone right now? There's pretty good chance of other people's phone numbers and addresses and sensitive information.

"It's a new decade but a lot of our problems remain the same name. The earth is warming the glasses on. My face are old. They're they're not from my childhood despite Other suggestions to that contrary and I don't have contact lenses which is something that I'm going to fix soon. Oh and tech giant apple in the. US government are facing off again because of a locked inaccessible iphone in a criminal investigation. Okay Akilah do you WANNA unpack. What's going on here? Yeah I think the first thing is that people should know. I said that his glasses Jalen. They're not okay. Sorry abutted yourself. Yeah we're fine. The more important news Last month there was a shooting on a naval base. In Pensacola Florida. That left three dead and eight others wounded. The perpetrator was Saudi Arabian and was killed at the scene by law enforcement and since that time law enforcement has been attempting to access that shooters personal iphone for clues and Information Asian on how many people were involved or knew about it and if there are ties to some sort of international terrorist organization yesterday attorney. General William Bar called the shooting in an act of terrorism and asked apple in a press conference to assist with the investigation and apple is refusing to unlock the phone And obviously this isn't the first time apple has been in this sort of position right in the months following the two thousand fifteen San Bernardino terrorist attack. That left fourteen dead and twenty two others injured. The same issue came up with apple refusing to cooperate with the FBI's requests to decrypt data on the shooter's iphone. And this all gets us into an essential privacy debate can the tech company that enables all of your data access that data And give it to the police and what's to stop the police or tech company from overstepping here. Yeah I think it's an interesting sort of philosophical question to Well Apple's defense is that you know one if they start unlocking iphones for law enforcement. There's a high risk of abuse read the entire history of this country To that data isn't just your own which is to say that you know if view hacked into my iphone right now? There's pretty good chance of other people's phone numbers and addresses and sensitive information. So that would mean that apple was just authorizing privacy breach of people who may not even even be accused of a crime. the third thing you know if they wrote code to unlock iphones.

"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.

"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.
