Using Amazon Fulfillment to Grow Your eCommerce Business with Michael Begg
"A lot of people who listen to the show are small business owners. Many are Web savvy perhaps maybe even web developers so they can probably build their own e commerce. I'm guessing using commerce. That's generally popular platform. I mean it's like a quarter of e commerce sites commerce so If they are you know if we have a small business owner who wants to get into kind of selling stuff online Maybe their own products. Maybe not right because you demonstrated that it doesn't necessarily have to be your own products. What are some of the things that they should think about. As far as research goes As far as like researching what products they want to sell or you know just kind of understanding how the amazon platform works. Let's let's go with kind of how the amazon platform works rate We had previous upset about drop shipping talked about kind of researching products. But if you have tips you know that was two years ago now and not talk here and there. I know a lot of things have changed. I mean the amazon platform is pretty straightforward. Obviously the consumer customer side is a lot better build out than the actual seller side. You know there's a lot of pain points on the seller side. There's a lot of people get frustrated with amazon. Just part of the process amazon is bill to serve their customers not their sellers. Which is its own thing But anyway you sign up with a professional account cost about forty dollars a month from there you upload your listings you need to have. Upc bar codes for your products. Need to purchase those from a gs. One those are about ten acts like three hundred dollars so it's not that crazy from there you can list your products on the platform and amazon will pretty much handle the entire fulfilment side of the sales if you want to again. If you don't have your own warehouse you fulfillment team or you don't wanna be packaging hundred dollars a day to go ship out yourself amazon's great for that you know using amazon. Fbi you can send all your inventory right in. They'll distribute it across the country closest to the consumers that are gonna probably repurchasing your products and then as the orders come in. They'll handle the shipping mail. The customer service in any issues on that end so super helpful. If you are small business any don't have the capabilities to really deal with the fulfillment and customer service aspects. Yourself if you do. I mean that's great. You don't need to use fbi also florida's directly from your warehouse but fbi deafening. Get you a little more visibility on the platform definitely helps you stand out more. Get the prime badge which is another very big selling point when consumers are shopping on the platform and bats more or less the basic steward. I mean there's a lot of other a specific niche things that we could talk about. That can help you sell more. But just getting set up on the platform is pretty straightforward and following those processes. You can pretty much do it on yourself on your own. Yeah for sure. So the kind of use cases. I'm thinking through right. Now is maybe we have like a maker who's creating their own stuff Or we have somebody who's may be looking into drop shipping or or Retail arbitrage i. Okay somebody who's selling other people's products and it seems like i if i'm making something i can. I can basically send it to amazon for them to fulfil or i assume if i'm doing some If i'm buying someone else's product in bulk i can have them send it directly to amazon is i. Is that how it goes or do i need to do. I need to me then. Intended to amazon. Yeah i mean most of the time we're going to have it sent to yourself or you're going to be seeing yourself in person and then you're going to be sending it to amazon. That's probably about ninety percent. There are some people that will send it directly amazon for you but it's a little bit more difficult to find. I see it really doesn't matter what size business you are having employees. There's there's so much potential. Here on the platform declined. That was literally a one person operation to start with. It started working with us a couple years ago. She was doing about fifteen twenty thousand dollars a month in sales. And you know two years later. She's doing three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month in sales and now she's actually being able to build a team i mean she's she's making significant revenue. She has a significant team to help her now. And that's just one example of how quickly you can grow on the platform. You know how much you can scale a business. Just through the amazon sales channel. Yeah that's great until and this is Kind of reason we're talking about. This is because as a freelancer as a small business owner. You worry about when you're one big client says we don't need you anymore right like we wanted. Diversify our income and so Selling through amazon is a good way. Now i suspect of the listeners. Like me Do more kind of digital products. You mentioned that. You started selling books on kindle. I wanna ask you about that in the members only show sure But in general amazon. We're talking mostly about physical products. Here right yeah. For the most part the kindle side is just one piece of amazon there's a royalty based business so you create a digital content. And you're making money forever. I mean books. I published eight years ago or still right review royalties every month. So yeah that's just one way to do it but You know physical product businesses are also pretty easy to build platform in not that challenging to do on. It's not a fulltime job. Do it on your own if you have a few products that you're selling so and that's fantastic because the fulfilment is the hardest part. I don't have room in my house to keep inventory right. I've got two kids now. So i don't know that they're toys r. Where my inventory would be Now now the other part of this is that you your personal path has led you to creating amc advisers and you have you say you're running a remote team of thirty right yes. So let's let's talk about kind of how you built that team and then how you moved to remote right as right now. Listeners can see this. Of course. But i'm looking at you in an office with multiple desk but you're by yourself. I assume because we're recording this in the midst of a pandemic yes that would be a good assumption. Actually kind of a funny process that we went through. I mean it started with Definitely working remotely and then coming into his office and now now we're remote again because of the pandemic. Yeah i mean as a business. We started growing. It was myself into other partners in the agency star way than we were handling a lot of things ourselves. We were able to get to about forty thousand dollars a month and grabbing you with us stanley which was nice. I mean that was like ninety percent margin so that was a nice little payday. Then we realized if we wanted to actually take you beyond this build. Something that had some equity value or or something that could provide an exit in the future We really need to build a business. Not just be doing freelance work again. If you're relying on a lot of clients a couple of big clients that are really bringing in revenue. We kind of were It's there's a lot of risk. Hang your business model that way. Just put it that way so we realized that we had to start scaling. We started using. Birds will assistance in the philippines So that was one aspect of our remote worth team. Obviously there's definitely challenges with that time zone. Being one of the big ones we as an agency. We need to respond to clients quickly. We need to provide good customer service in dealing with time zone. Differences created a lot of issues around that sometimes so we continue to grow and i actually came to guadalajara. Was where my girlfriend. Why i'm still here And as we continue to grow we need more people so we started hiring client facing people remotely in the us and content team people here in mexico so doing graphic design content writing Administrative stuff things like that now actually started hiring client facing people here in mexico as well so it's just been a process of scaling like that. Obviously march twenty twenty hits in that kind of all changes The other pandemic comes in. Now everyone's working remotely in mexico now. We have eighteen people completely remote and it was. It's obviously a big change. I mean i know it affects people differently By we had a great offer community prior to the pandemic it was great like how people we worked with really enjoyed. And now i know a lot of people are missing. Adding that interaction with everyone impervious ended up the same talking through slack for example. But it's one of the challenges that that most companies are facing.

Here so i come from a background of great entrepreneurial spirit and entrepreneurial experience I am now in my fourth company. I'm twenty seven years old. And i have a great past life of kind of the whole entrepreneurship through kind of the experiences and components that will lead us to build Currently building and in what we're doing now is something that i think it's truly phenomenal. And it's going to kind of change. The way entrepreneurship is kind of dealt with from. Start so something that really excited about. We have a mission to help reduce entrepreneurship failures right. Three percent in the united states in four years. So we're really on target. How achieve that mission and you know kind of a little bit about what we built. We built this conversational bought. Her is maya at what maya does is. She helps facilitate administrative tasks and navigate company operations using the power of voice mazing. Yeah go ahead you go. I was to say okay so this is great. This is great so you are helping to how we businesses to carry out some of these tasks so go ahead. Yeah explained a little bit more. What does this. What's what's the deal with what you've got here yes so me. Coming from an entrepreneurial background i had one successful company had to failures and i were talking about this failures more than eighteen on the wall. Because it's what's led to current situation current field all of the things that led us to our failed components of that led that failure. We realize it came with where we spent our time and founders and first time entrepreneurs and young startup companies spent over seventy five percent of their time doing administrative tasks that they kind of love innovation behind. They leave growing the company behind. Which is the most important thing when building company the administrative tasks are not and those administrative tasks range from you know like incorporating or business. Bank accounts Web services. You know those are just really basic things for the go to accounting tax and and things like that capital and things like that. So that's stops. That's what we're looking to help. Eradicate and with that first time founders and entrepreneurs they spend a ton of time in rnd trying to figure out who to deploy these tasks to and how to deploy so. That's also something that we're helping to eradicate and how helping radically that is. We have a very large partner network. That helps integrate into our system. So it creates seamless connectivity to these partners tell getting that done and it kind of fill traits each business with the six point algorithm that helps identify them where to go. And why and tastic. So can you get into this sort of six point algorithm and in some of the information about some of the partners that you work with. How does that work. Yes so really. And truly the kind of the basic formats. The algorithm is broken down into six components dot com suggest certain things and that's industry budget size stage location and traits. And that's how we're able to suggest certain partners certain tasks to be done based on the stages that you're inning company industry location size stage by etc etc and these partners that we select select partner. That's integrated our to help accelerate and carry out entrepreneurship business operations efficiently and with the right budget. And we're help tying those partners to the right pretty much business user our platform right on so now. Can you tell us practically what this looks like. Say business as okay. i wanna use. I want to use what you've created. I wanna use maya. What does that look like for them. How is set up in practically. How is that going to help them. Save time and what is it gonna do for them. Yes so you know if if you're kinda starting off for business we'll look kinda. Let me start that. We're a current product is right now. We are still in our startup phases of the organization so our product actually fifteen percent complete and with that being said most of our values provided towards companies aviation and getting into running operations. So that's where we're currently that. So right now with us to come in they would come in kind of at that stage and my would just kind of figure out where they're at in their businesses can of components. They have already have going on with that. Six point algorithm and then. She's gonna suggest certain things that that business should do to carry out to help. Kind of increase the entrepreneurship Accelerate the business growth into a live in vine into a live running environment. So can you give us some some of the some examples on how that would work. Yes so this is a college students in college. I have this great idea to build a fintech app But all i know is how to bill that gap all. I knows how to code and develop. So i've come up and join up maya. She's she's available on the app store so he can download. Hershey developed bill blind desktop version. And you would sock sign up to my mile. And then you know maya would then figure out again where you're at and then just just like that the task for just begin sedan suggest what you need to do. All you got to do is give permission for that task to be done. She will go ahead and run the task with a partner and then bring the completed details back so that you really don't have to be involved so for example i am again at the asian state. Hey maya corporate business might already gonna know what state you're in. She actually pretty much. What kind of status that you want to complete Secret llc f talk to attorney. She'll kind of Link with one of our connected partner attorneys that we have the rock lawyer or in that type of situation there and then she'll go carry out the task again. Bring it back completed and then you pretty much see your articles inc right inside the platform and then you can just carry a while of going on you just carry on and while task is in motion more can can be completed. It's both on demand and suggestive
Is it too late to get in to Bitcoin?
"Back in the day when amazon i one public it shot up roughly after some fits and spurts. It went up to about ninety dollars. You it was like i'm too late. Missed it gone. And then it capitulated down at shot all the way down to two and i was like it's gone amazon's finished not even gonna look at it and then it went back up to ninety. I missed it. I missed it again then. Went up to three hundred to four hundred. It's this constant m. I too late emmett too. Early internal struggle that we have in our brain. What do you think about that. Yeah i think this is exactly so what you're really describing is Things being relative and this is actually think the fundamentally challenging concept with something like bitcoin which is a paradigm shift so people think about bitcoin relative to other assets. If you call a lot of conversations i had in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty where around bitcoins volatility right but bitcoins volatility relative to what because volatility is a relative measure price when we talk about price it's a relative measure because what am i Pricing bitcoin and typically people are pricing in dollars so relatively speaking yes. Bitcoin is volatile compared to holding dollars. But if we compare bitcoin to say equities if you quainton bonds if we compare bitcoin to precious metals the volatility doesn't look so extreme. What really happened at the start of this year. In march of twenty twenty the world shifted the world changed completely and forty years of capital markets. Beliefs were shattered like smashed with a hammer completely shattered. Now changes really hard for people and one of the things. That's really interesting For me personally. I want things to go fast right. Because i've in crypto and things fast and like wait why has it taken a six years to get to this point but in reality as you know the arc of time is very long and it takes a lot of time for the world to change for people to internalize that change and adjust their mental models right and a big part of this in a big part of ice than so much time talking and writing and trying to teach and communicate is. It's really about giving people new frameworks mental models to help them. Integrate this new way of thinking these mental models into how they view the world trade. That's really important. I think there's so many. Brilliant people in crypto. Who do this in different ways. So we have this really broad cross section of people communicating a lot of ways talking to a lot of different audiences which is amazing. The we had this fundamental shift happened. Everything got everything else got crazy. It's not that bitcoin got crazy. That everything else got way freaking crazier and what i love is when i talk to people about. Bitcoin bitcoin to extensive. I'm like let me ask you a question. Did you did you. By tesla five hundred and yeah. Of course i did. Like tesla's going to and i'm like okay. So tesla has appreciated more this year than bill. Clinton has tesla appreciated close to seven hundred percent in two thousand twenty yet you bought at the high and they clean appreciated two hundred and fifty percent and twenty twenty yet. You refuse to buy so help me understand right even if we're using the same of dollars even if we're looking at the same volatility measure somehow bitcoin Why and then he will start thinking. They're like wait a minute because math is hard this we know the people just. They're not thinking logically for some reasons for some people when they think about bitcoin their brain goes into like a tailspin and logic goes out the window. But this is again why i think the collectibles narrative is in so interesting to me because when i say to people like do you know what a honus wagner card is. They're like yeah. Of course. I know i'm like i don't know like okay. One honus wagner card is two point five million dollars. Do you think bitcoin at twenty five thousand thirty five thousand forty thousand is expensive in there. Like probably not right. So let's dig into that tesla coin thing. What part of the fact that. Bitcoin is effectively. Founded by an an-and sushi. Who we do not know if it's a he she it what vs on. Musk pop very public. Are we in agreement. That's the toshi was the aliens. Are we doing alias. I'm kidding shocking. Oh every time. I hear that especially in clubhouse. Everyone's like oh yeah. It was created by the alien somebody yeah. Let's not do that you know. I'm already speculating. That twenty two thousand one. The aliens are finally come here and just completely take over. But i don't want to hear that. The ashley also created the nsa taverners been around for a while and then there's a holiday larue like there. What what part in in psychology because you talked to a lot of institutional investors to you talked to a lot of big money. What part of that psychology. That one you have a very public figure with ilan and then too you have associate whom no one really knows who it is what it is. What part of that you place until list. Yeah so i actually think. Bitcoin and tesla are very similar in one regard both are aspirational and let me explain what i mean by that. Bitcoin invites you to conceptualize the world in a different way. Tesla what eon has done with business. Ilan has memed a new reality into existence. The way he talks about tesla right is completely detached from the economic realities of that business. Completely detached from the economic realities of that business but it doesn't matter because the vision that ilan describes the persona that he has the cult of personality he's created around himself is aspirational grit song by the way cult of personality. That's a great song. it's also great like psychological phenomenon. And what. I think eli done so effectively is. He's the zeitgeist okay. Markets are just sentiment machines. And it's it's been really interesting. Because every value investor. I talked to like twenty twenty. Made their brains explode. It literally made their slowed. They're looking at these stocks trading at fourteen hundred two thousand three thousand acts he for pe ratio rate and their brains are exploiting. That's our valued. And i'm like you forgot that nothing acid matters anymore. We don't live in the world that you lived in two years ago. this is not about value. We live in a world where there is a lot of uncertainty uncertainty about the future uncertainty about the stability institutions uncertainty about our role in this world. That's unfolding and in times of uncertainty. What people look for is vision. Right and what elon. Musk articulates when you talks about going to mars when you talks about. Putting for tesla on mars. That's vision right. I think satory she in so many ways and what we're doing with. Bitcoin is very similar. And i caught this. I've been really obsessed with the idea of building cathedrals lately. It's like five hundred years ago. Right if i was a visionary and had suggested for the future and i wanted to express that the only way for me to create something that withstood the test of time right to create quote unquote immutable. Truth was to build a cathedral and cathedrals took hundreds of years to build and people who built them dedicated tremendous amounts of resources to building these amazing like technology a technologically very advanced like gravity defying beautiful structures and. Whenever people saw them they would feel inspired. Right like cathedrals were how we painted a vision for the reality we wanted to live in. Okay tesla is a cathedral. Bitcoin is a cathedral. The stocks that are soaring the assets that are doing well their assets that are aspirational right and their people. Whether it's a non community of people an individual it's groups of people who believe in a vision for the future that is radically different from the future. We live today but it creates a motion. Right people look at it and they're like that is beautiful. And i wanna live in not future

"We're told by folks on both sides of the conversation that he did resign and it was a his choice, not anyone else's. We continue to do reporting and ask questions, But both sides say certainly emphatically that it was an amicable parting that you know whatever. The president's complaints have been in recent weeks and months. That was not what drove this particular decision on this particular day, and that's all we have to go on. Really, though those kind of disagreements between the president and Bill Bar Bill Bar kind of made this splash on the stage right after Robert Mueller presented his report, and that was kind of the first big exposure that a lot of people had to build bar, at least in the Trump administration. And from then on, you know, Bill Bar had been kind of accused of doing the president's bidding on a lot of things. He was a very big supporter of him. But even still, when it came down to things looking into the Russia probe, the Durham report and even backing him on the election that the election was stolen. Those air big splits between the attorney general and Donald Trump. And you know, a lot of the president's complaints have been about things that bar essentially would not do for him during the campaign, meaning, you know, announced investigations or say that he had found significant voter fraud, though they're obviously very important things in the president's mind that bar different, but it's It's an amazing arc. If you think about that relationship Bar was for most of the two years he's been the attorney general, the president's most effective and most out spoken Cabinet member and You could really see it falling off in the relationship and the last month or so really, primarily because of the election. What is this safe or the legacy of Bill Bar as attorney general? I mean, it's just a weird situation. I get it. The administration is going to be ending pretty soon, but you can't hold out one month. I don't know that just kind of keeps playing in my head. Like what made it so urgent that you just had to get out right now. It's a great question, and I think part of what the curiosity is inside the Justice Department and even among you know, former Justice Department officials is what's going to happen at the Justice Department in the next month. Are there going to be a large number of pardons or parts of controversial cases like For example, the Russia investigation cases or other cases that would displease her anger. People of the Justice Department. You know, there's been folks advocating for a pardon for Julian Hassan's of Wikileaks. Advocating for a pardon of Edward Snowden, the former N s a contractor. And I think one of the big questions that remains to be answered is Do we end up seeing the types of pardons that Bill Bar will be glad he Wasn't there to have to deal with or answer questions about because that's part of their obviously completely the president's prerogative. But we just don't know. And that's I think one of the big unanswered questions as we head into sort of this last month of the Trump administration, you're listening to the Daily Dive Weekend edition. I'm Oscar Ramirez and we'll be right.

"Appreciate it. You are listening to news radio WMD 11:40 a.m. and 96.1 FM too, As I see it, I'm Howard coming and I'd like you to tweet me at the Howard government. That's at the Howard gotten. We have a lot to talk about. And if I get the tweets, I can focus it in the directions you're interested in. But we were talking about why I thought it was a holiday week. The week At the country that half of the country that had been addicted to Donald Trump moved on that the media started covering the hill. They started covering stimulus talks. They started covering the Defense Authorization Act. They started covering Joe Biden and his administration. That Republican lawmakers start commenting on these things without mentioning or waiting for Donald Trump. That news talk radio shows start talking about these things without ever mentioning Donald Trump. I believe we had gotten to the state of recognition and acceptance. In the seven stages that will go over of loss and grief. I thought we had a holiday week we had gotten to the face off the state of recognition and acceptance that Trump any loss. That's where do we stand? Let's go over it real quickly. We know it. We've talked about it on this show a lot. The facts are 51 million for Joe Biden 70. 81 million for Joe Biden 74 million for Donald Trump. Split of about 51% to 47%. Joe Biden won the popular vote. That doesn't matter. He won the percentage boat that doesn't matter, but he got 306 electoral votes. And the reason was crystal clear. There was no theft is we know now there was no fraud. As we know now there was no improper registration. It is simply that four years ago 7% of America voted for third parties or themselves were Mickey Mouse. 7% had refused to vote, either for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. And so Hillary Clinton or lost that election four years ago because the people who would vote for Donald Trump 7% of them also would not vote for her. This year that third party vote that Mickey Mouse vote that vote for myself fell from 7% to 1% off drop off of 6%. Where did that 6% drop off? Go? 4% want to Biden. Who percent went to Trump the pick up of 2% of the people who previously voted for none of the above was enough to take buying from a 1% electoral loss to 1% electoral gain. It threw him Michigan and threw him was confident through Georgia. Through Pennsylvania. It threw him the election. It's that simple and that truth? Sure people had questions upfront. You had to take a real look. Was there any fraud? I guess the lawyers spread out they had nothing. They went to Republican judges who said you haven't brought me anything. They went to Republican governors like Brian Kemp in Georgia, who said Our election was done fairly. They went to Trump's head of cyber who said it was the most secure election ever, and he got fired and finally It fell on the Attorney General Bill Bar. Probably one of the most addicted to Donald Trump. He had come in to rescue the present in the impeachment. He, instead of recusing himself, like Jeff Sessions did because he was involved. Bill Bar came in and said I will go right in the middle. And the only one who could punish me for this is Donald Trump, and I'm serving him. So Bill Bar would come in on, say, Robert Muir of report exonerates Donald Trump won, Of course, it did not exonerate Donald Trump. So Bill Bar was the biggest apologist for the president. But even he now had to either say. I'm going to continue the mission. And we're gonna overturn the election. I don't know what I'm going to say, or I've got at least say democracy occurred. And so one by one people had to peel off of the trump addiction. That's true of the media. That's true of his supporters in government, and that was true of the senators. And they therefore went and sent it, but that was not going to sit well with Donald Trump. No one sure. Is he acting. Does he? Of course. No, he lost, but it's simply acting. Well, if he fundraising acting and fundraising or some of speculated, has he really had a breakdown? Has he lost touch with reality? I do not believe Donald Trump had a breakdown has lost touch with reality. I believe you fly like a fox. I believe he did a great job raising $300 million. I believe he's running next time and could well win next time having done that, But if you're Bill Bar if you're Mitch Connell, if you're o a n or Newsmax or bright, Bart, you open we have to tell the truth. And when you do when you do you have a falling out. When you do you have Donald Trump to answer to cause he's either acting or fundraising or did lose touch with reality? And if you say there was no massive fraud because there was none. He is going to fire you. So Donald Trump fired Bill Bar Bill Bart announced he was quitting. But he could have left with his full dignity. He could have said, You know, I was. I'm Bill. Hi, Bill. I've been addicted for four years. I am here. A ta meetings. Trump Anonymous. I've been addicted for four years. The only one I'm leaving behind to be addicted is Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani and Alan Dershowitz. But I'm come clean. Welcome to have you. How long have you been sober? Bill? I've been sober for a week. Ever since I admitted there should be no investigation of Hunter Biden. There should be no investigation of the election. Nice to have you, Bill. So he had to be fired and what happened when that happened? Instead of announcing as any age, he would What an honor. It was to serve with the people of this Justice Department. He used his entire retirement announcement to gravel. The Donald Trump What a joy it was to serve. What an amazing president Even though he said I am firing. I am fired. I'm leaving because I don't believe 100 by.

"Attorney General Bill Bar gives the Wall Street Journal a wide ranging interview on his time at the White House, minus a few details. Perhaps most notable, and that conversation with the journal with the attorney general is what he didn't say. For example, no comments about interactions between Congressman Eric Swalwell, who sits on the Intel committee and an accused Chinese spy nothing about widespread voter fraud during the 2020 election or the president's battle to overturn the apparent outcome. However, Mr Barr did defend his to see Asian to not divulge the ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden.

"Way no Bill bar exited there is exiting the Trump administration. We found that courtesy. The president yesterday tweeted about it. They seem to be parting on good terms. We talked about that. But something else interesting happened yesterday involving the Justice Department and I can't help but think All of these events were connected. Because earlier in the day prior to us, finding out that Bill Bar was resigning and that he will conclude his work on December 23rd. We got a report out of the Fox news Channel. Some bread bear tweet this yesterday, he wrote U. S Attorney John Durham, who eggy Bill Bar Tap to investigate the origins of the Trump Russia probe is expanding his team. By adding additional prosecutors and is making quote excellent progress, according to a federal law enforcement official familiar with the situation. And here I am ery thinking now, in retrospect.

Look, I'm not failing the American people here We are pursuing justice. And just so everybody knows I can't get into the details of the term investigation.

And again, I I just having been let down for four years thinking that, you know, Okay, the swamp's going to finally get theirs. You know, Justice will finally be done for everything that was done to President Trump With the moment he came down that escalator for all of the wrongs for all of his rights that were subverted and violated. We're finally gonna get some kind of justice. I'm still waiting. Yeah, and more clearly, I'm still waiting. And, more importantly, all of our rights that were subverted by this crisis. I mean, because you know, the President, of course, is a stand in for all of the people who supported him and for a country That expects a government not to abuse the power we've estimate. So this is this is of paramount importance. This Durham investigation Now as a special counsel, I got to say one of you know, we're kind of all await what's occurring here? Mary, Pessimistic me optimistic. But in the end both of us kind of you. This is a mixed bag.

These questions that should be asked off Joe Biden or absolutely Essential. Think about how you would question Trump Think about how reporters have questioned from When it comes to a special counsel investigation. The obvious questions rise to the top, right, Mary, which is Will you protect the special counsel? Will you protect the independence of the Justice Department? Will you interfere in this investigation? Will you pardon your son? Who is actively under federal investigation. Will you honor the commitments you made during the campaign not to interfere with the actions of the Justice Department. Those were all very relevant questions. Most reporters have absolutely no interest in asking. Yeah, that there are a lot of questions again and I sit here and wait going to grow old again. Schwarzkopf invaded and free to country and like a three weeks and we can't get any kind of justice and four years and the swamp is coming back with a vengeance of vengeance.

"The attorney general Bill bar before the Senate Judiciary committee. CBS news writes, the following quote, a define attorney general defended the way he oversaw the release of special counsel, Robert Muller's report his appearance. Follow the revelation yesterday that Muller had confronted bar about his public characterization of the report. And there is this from. Fox News, quote, attorney general Bill bar firing back Democrats who for weeks have called his integrity into question over his handling of special counsel, Robert Muller's Russia report suggesting during a testy Capitol Hill hearing that they were only using the issue to score political points ahead of the twenty twenty election in advising that the DOJ's rolled in. The controversy is quote now over we will break it all down, but be begin with a portion of the attorney general's opening statement during my confirmation process. There were two concerns that dominated as I think, you will all agree. The first was whether I would in any way, impede or Kerr tale. Special counsels Muller's investigation and the second whether I would make public his final report as you say Bob Muller was allowed to to complete his work as he saw fit. And as for the report, even though the applicability regulations require that the report is to be made to the G, and is to remain confidential and not be made public. I told this committee that I intended to exercise whatever discretion I had to make as much of the report available to the public and to congressional leaders as I could consistent with the law. This has been done. I ride at the department on February fourteenth. And shortly thereafter, I asked it to be communicated to Bob Muller stain that Improperia the report. We requested that they make it. So he could readily identify sixty material. So we could quickly process. The report did you tell the public what sixty six as grand jury material that cannot be made public. It's prohibited by statute, and I wanted that identified so we could redact that material and prepare the report for public releases quickly as we could when I ride at the department I found and was eventually briefed in on the investigation. I found that the deputy attorney general and his principal associate deputy at Cal O'Callaghan. We're in regular discussions with the counsel's office had been and they communicated this request and had discussions about that. Both the timing of the report and the nature of the report on March fifth. I met with Bob at the suggestion of the deputy and the principal associate deputy by Muller met with Bob Muller. To to get a readout on what his conclusions would be. On March twenty fifth. And at that meeting. I asked I reiterate it to to special counsel Mahler that in order to to have the shortest possible time before I was in a position to release the report I asked that they identify sixty material. When I received the report on March twenty second, and we were hoping to to have that easily identified the six eight material. Unfortunately, it did not come in that form and it quickly became apparent that. It would take about three or four weeks. To identify that material and other material that have to be redacted. So there was necessarily going to be a gap between the receipt of the report and getting the full report out publicly the deputy, and I. Identified four categories of information that we believe required redaction, and I think you will all know of them. But they were the grand jury materialistic c material information that the intelligence community advised would reveal sensitive sources and methods information that if revealed at this stage would impinge on the investigation or prosecution of related cases and information that would unfairly affect the privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties. We want about redacting this material in concert with special counsel's office. We needed their assistance to identify the sixty material in particular. The reductions were all carried out by DOJ lawyers with special counsel lawyers in consultation with intelligence community. Today's hearing began shortly after ten AM with a lunch break it concluded just past three PM. The White House confirming the president did watch the testimony and William bar was scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary committee tomorrow morning. The committee will still need the attorney general will not appear you can watch the hearing live on C span television. And listen to it here on C span radio. Meanwhile, committee chair Senator Lindsey Graham made sure today's appearance before the Senate Judiciary committee got off to a rather explosive start he spent a large part of his opening remarks discussing text messages between former FBI officials Peter Struck and Lisa page to fierce critics have Donald Trump at one point.

Well, look at the FIS a warrant process did Russia provide Christopher Steele information about Trump that turned out to be garbage. That was used to get a warrant on American system said, and if so how did this system or is there a real effort between Papadopoulos and anybody in Russia to use the Clinton emails stolen, stole by the Russians. Or is that thought planet in his mind? I don't know. But we're gonna look. And I can tell you this. If you change the name Joe wanna look to. Everything I just said just substitute Clinton for Trump. See what all of these people will cameras would be saying out here about this as to cooperation in the Clinton investigation. I told you what the Trump people did Tevi of about what the Clinton people did. There was a protective order. For the server. Issued by the house, and there was a request by the State Department to preserve all the information on the server. Paul Cam better after having the protective order. Used a software program called bleach. Bit to white this Email server clean as anybody ever heard of Paul can better. No. Under a protective order from the house to preserve the information. Other requests from the State Department to preserve the information on the server used a bleach bit program. Don't wipe it clean. What happened to him? Nothing. Eighteen devices possessed by secretary Clinton, she used to do business a secretary how many of them were turned over to the FBI not two of them could be turned over because Judith casper took a hammer and destroyed two of them. What happened Dr? Nothing. So the bottom line is were about here for Mr. bar. The results of a two year investigation into the Trump campaign all things Russia the actions, the president took before and after the campaign twenty five million dollars. Forty FBI agents. Appreciate very much what Mr. Muller did for the country. I have read most of the report. For me. It is over. And yet some Democrats criticizing Senator Lindsey Graham for not reading the entire report just over four hundred pages. Eight is available on our website. It's C-SPAN dot or you can type in on the search engine. The Muller report and read all four hundred plus pages, except of course, the redacted versions are the redacted portions of that report. Now, the attorney general noted in his testimony that Robert Muller concluded his investigation without any interference that neither the attorney general nor any other Justice department official overruled the special counsel on any action. He wanted to take the attorney general also defended his decision to step in and clear, the president of obstruction of Justice after Muller presented evidence on both sides. But did not reach conclusion, California Senator Dianne Feinstein is the committee's ranking democrat you still have a situation where a president essentially tries to change.

It is Bill bar gets the letter from Bob Muller saying that Bill bars letter to congress did not fully capture. The concerns about the context and the nature in the sub didn't fully capture and so Bob Barr. Call Bill bar Bill and Bob Billy, Bob Billy Bob Thornton Bill bar calls. Bob Muller and says, listen to bars, very precise language, are you suggesting that my letter to congress did not accurately portray? What was in your report? Are you suggesting that I was inaccurate in? How I talked to congress and Muller said, no, no, no, I'm not suggesting you work inaccurate. I'm suggesting that I want you to release more context, more summaries. More executive summaries of the report because in the Muller report, you have four hundred pages three hundred eighty something like that. And before each volume two volumes you have an executive summary. Now, the executive summary was very helpful. When that report was released, and I had to go on TV in about ten minutes. And so I had to quickly scan the executive summary. But clearly what Bob Muller wanted was for William bar to release that executive summary right away. And William Barr says no I'm not going to release multiple summaries, especially staggered over time that are going to confuse people. Now, it's not Bob Muller's. Call on what summaries, and how many press conferences, and how many press interviews he wants to give it seems from the leaking of Bob Muller's letter that he or somebody on his team is pretty familiar with talking to the press, but will William Barr is no we're not going to do that. And here's his reasoning. Why I told Bob that I was not interested in putting out summaries. And I wasn't going to put out the report piecemeal I wanted to get the whole report arrow, and I thought summaries by very definition, regardless of who prepared them would be under inclusive, and we'd have sort of a series of different debates and public discord over each Tronc of information that went out, and I wanted to get everything out at once and we should start working. That pre sound reasoning. And by the way, it turns out that bar was right Boris argument is if you release these things piecemeal and different summaries it's going to be endlessly ripped apart. Orig you about there's going to be a lot of controversy better to just give congress the quick view of things and then released the report when we can. And by the way, the only reason bar had to send that letter to congress in the first place, which obviously then came out to the public was because William bar asked.

"Confirm Bill bar as attorney general he's bar confirmation insurance onto legs depending on the answers that he gets on the record. For the record. Could you be a yes? Vote for Bill bar, and what about some of your other democratic colleagues? I think I could be I think that you know, where to stage where we desperately need somebody who will truly stand up for the department as an independent institution. And I do think that he gave a lot of very good signals in that regard and has prior experience and his family's engagement with the department as you know, career a USA's and all of that put him in the right definitional category to be somebody who will stand up for the department. So again, you know, come the real pressures, and you know, Rush Limbaugh on the airwaves about you. And all that other stuff we've seen strong men fail in front of Trump's pressures before. So I wanna ask you about the legal argument about whether a sitting president can be indicted, but you said on CNN just recently that the quotas. We're certainly in a mode of moving toward indictment and charges of the president. What's what's your basis for that? In what? What's that? The question had to do with looking at the Muller investigation from outside and trying to figure out what status that is in. And there's been a little bit of press hysteria about how the investigations wrapping up. Oh, it's winding down over at the tail end of it, which seems to have very little factual foundation to it. And just now you have Rick gates asked to have his sentencing extended because he's cooperating believe in multiple investigation, and you have this heavily heavily redacted Manafort document, which as far as I'm concerned, the there's a rough correlation between the amount of reduction in the amount of continuing investigation. So I think the signals are that it's continuing, and I was in that answer trying to say where do I think they are in their investigation. And that is they are past the stage of there being a case here that's worth pursuing their deep into investigation and prepare. During charges and things like that. But from what I can see they don't have that critical piece of direct evidence that closes the case, they're still working in a large web of circumstantial evidence. So the we in that is putting myself into Muller's head and trying to think where his investigation has given everything we've learned and especially over the last week the New York Times story about the counterintelligence investigation that was launched by the FBI, the Washington Post story about the multiple about the ways in which Trump communicated with Putin with no record whatsoever. Even reading over notes. I mean, is it acceptable at this point to just wait. For Muller doesn't congress have an obligation to step up to the plate here and conduct its own investigation. As far as I can tell Senate Intel has not held a single public. Airing with any fact witness at all so that all the testimony has been concealed from the public. We don't know what they gotten. And if this investigation is going to go on for some time as you're suggesting is that okay with you, just we'll we'll just wait for Muller. You know, the argument could be made that you've outsourced your constitutional responsibility to a official in the executive branch who you who's told you nothing about what he's doing. I think there are some very important baseline questions that we need to answer that should have been answered already. Yeah. We're really exercise of proper congressional oversight instead of Republican congressional bend oversight, which is not good line. Not adequate. And just like, they're probably a lot of them. But just think of these two as kind of openers. We don't know to what extent this president has ongoing business relationships and transactions with Russian figures or Saudi figures for that matter. Right. And you saw how squirrelly bar got when I tried to ask him questions. One. Hearing you ask the Senator was are the president's foreign basically are the president's foreign business interests and entanglements a counterintelligence concern for the FBI and the answer is out for us. Well, the answer the answer, obviously ought to be. Yes..

"William bar, Bill bar was interesting in that was that would came up which was something we've been talking about yesterday. And I was on Hannity last night talking about it again. And that is the so called counter intelligence investigation that was launched by the FBI, let me kind of lay out the framework, and I got a quick question for Andy. Which is again, I think it's important to differentiate between the counterintelligence and criminal inquiry. But let me let me lay out the scenario here. So we went through all the irregularities down the broadcast yesterday. And then, but let me give you a time sequence. So the James Comey tells the president United States he's not under investigation. Then James call me is fired at the same time. Peter Struck sends a text message in the same week. Peter Struck sends a text message to this is I I've always found this to be interesting to Lisa page saying whether he was going to go over to the special counsel's office to work on the investigation. And he says, you know, I would if I thought there was a there there there's really not a bear there. My gut tells me there's not a bear there. I'm not going to go over. I don't think words to that effect. I ended up he ended up. He does James Comey is fired. So it goes from you're not under investigation to the investigators say I don't think there's anything there there with Russia to James Comey gets fired and then purportedly a counter intelligence investigation is launched against the sitting president of the United States. Yeah. And this counter intelligence investigation would have been launched around the same time that Peter Strock was saying there's no big they're they're so he's the head of counter intelligence saying there's no big they're they're right. But yet he's willing to launch a counterintelligence investigation against the president to try and show and prove that the president is acting as a Russian agent is the main cheering candidates scenario, the most absurd of all scenarios, and what would be again, if in reality much more serious, but Peter Struck says there's no there there does he want to join the special counsel team, which by the way took over that counterintelligence investigation that he started it took it over if there was a new one, but I suspect it took over crossfire hurricane as well. But we still don't know if there was actually a new one put in place, we don't know that Andy again important distinction between counterintelligence and criminal criminal investigation is an investigation. That is aimed at determining whether a crime has been committed specific violation of the US code and there's targets and subjects of those and the purposes to arrest somebody to indict them to convict them into send some to jail. That's what a criminal investigation is a counterintelligence investigation. Generally, the result of the the province of the FBI is to counter foreign intelligence activities within the United States to see if any secrets of the United States are being stolen or compromised or assets. The United States are being used. It's a mission that his fact-finding in nature and doesn't result in in dimes and investigations of the nature have described earlier and could go on for years. So quickly urine. How much news is this gap gathered on Capitol Hill is potential counterintelligence investigation launched at the president. Well, it's getting some the hearings for Bill bar getting more attention today. Jane probably will today and tomorrow.

"Visit the Capitol Hill to take questions about the early days of the Russia investigation, and is handling of the Hilary Clinton Email investigation. We took hours of questions from members of two house committees on Friday, here's his reaction to what took place after a full day of questioning two things are clear to me one. We could have done this and open setting and two when you read the transcript, you will see that we're talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails sake. So I'm not sure we need to do this at all. But I'm trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way. You'll see I did that in the transcript you'll see that. If you get a transcript of my return visit which I think will be week after next. And then this will be over. The. Nominee served as attorney general. The last time do you have confidence that he can act with impartiality if he's confirmed to this show I like in respect Bill bar. I know he's 'institutionalised who cares deeply about the integrity of the Justice department. So I'm sure he'll use the standard for resources. He has to judge what he should be bothering what he shouldn't be involved in. But Bill bar is a is a talented person. Who was a good attorney general the first time I liked him very much. I think he'll serve Justice. And I'm sure he'll talk to the career officials extensively. Have you? The Muller investigation at this point. I can't talk about that dot director. You can't talk about that. Came out and said government, lawyers, your brain interference and shutdowns specific lines of plush Nate did that happen. And if so what topics not? Read the transcript, then I think you will not see that happening. Specific topics that we still feel like you can't discuss from your time at the FBI director out the door for a year and a half. Now, what can't you answer? Well, the FBI for understandable reasons doesn't want me talking about the details of the investigation is still ongoing began when I was FBI director makes sense that they don't want me going into those details, but that's a very tiny part of what we talked about today. A whole lot of Hillary Clinton's emails, which will you? Next time. Figuring will be. There wasn't any talk of it. I think they want to do it the same way. I wish it we're going to be public. But I think we're gonna have to do the same way. Again. He said, you're okay with the nomination. So will you you have any concerns about the firing up Jeff Sessions and the president continuing going after sessions for not accusing himself. The president's attacks on the Justice department broadly, and the FBI are something that no matter what political party you're in. You should find deeply troubling and continue to speak out about not become numb to attacks on the firing of session specific by that I can count.
