But if he does Um, Durham is a professional. He will not say anything publicly. I can't imagine that he would, But he will. Um, he'll do his work. And maybe he will say something eventually, but I think Garland is perfectly capable of stopping. Not, uh, like a major indictment against the group of, uh, which would include some Democrats and some democratic lawyers. He didn't stop this one. Okay, but And of course that this is This is the one that lays out the conspiracy if you stop the next one. I think you're going to have a lot of splainin to do is Ricky Ricardo used to say? Sure. Okay, So one last thing on Michael Sussman any chance that he can flip at this point or be useful towards pursuing other people within Hillary Clinton's orbit? I mean, he's made this guilty plea is that the end of it? I mean, sorry. There's not guilty plea he made. I can't imagine that he would flip at this point. I mean, he saw the way Kevin Kline Smith was treated by Judge Boasberg slap on the wrist. Yeah. You know? No no punishment whatsoever for falsifying a document to apply the court talk about it Disgraceful sentencing by one of the five to court judges of all things I think he looked at that. He sees that he's going to be in front of a D C jury, which hates Trump and may very well view him as a hero for doing what he did to try and frame Trump, and I think he thinks it's perfectly fine to roll the dice. There's no reason for him to flip because even if he's convicted He thinks he's not going to get any time, right? We'll ride it out. And there's tons of money waiting for money. Other side. Oh, and he will be. He will be feted when it is over. Even if he is convicted. Yes, indeed. All right.

"One wonderful to be here on another Sunday morning to talk to everybody about a safe and secure retirement. Lots of things going on out there that are going to impact our retirement, especially some of the policies coming out of Washington. One of those policies has a lot to do with energy. And I'm not thrilled about what's going on within the Biden administration about their energy policy. It's going to have a very negative impact on the car, our cost of living because as you drive up the cost of energy, you drive up the cost. Of everything else. So one of the other things I want to mention here before we jump into the show today, I just happened to see this on the news and I took a quick look at it. And I'm sorry, jotted it down and I wanted to share it with everybody. Because I think one of the problems that we are facing today and are just by the way. This has absolutely nothing to do with retirement. It just gets under my skin. I happen to have a radio show, so I get to talk about it. So let me just say that some of the politically correct people in our federal government Thought they would be doing us a favor, not by slapping a label on some of our founding documents. So I'm going to read to you just a couple of paragraphs. He says visitors to the National Archives website looking for the U. S. Founding documents are now greeted with labels warning of harmful language. It isn't clear when the tags were added. But the move has angered some Republicans. Harmful language alert labels can be found on pages displaying the scanned versions. Of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. As well as the 1st 10 amendments known as the Bill of Rights. The addition caught the eye of Congresswoman Lauren Boasberg, Republican candidate Republican congresswoman from Colorado. Who pointed it out on Tuesday. Okay, um Harmful language label being slapped on the documents that founded this nation. I think it's disgraceful, and I think it's pandering to the left, and I've never been a fan of politically political correctness because I think it suppresses Free speech. Okay, time to talk about retirement, climb down off the soap box and talk about things that actually will help you put more money in your pocket. I'll get back up on my soapbox later when we talk about Biden's energy policies and lack there of okay. So we all know that the banks aren't paying anything. Interest rates really low. If you want to buy a house and get a mortgage, so the interest rates are so low that you can buy a lot of house. The only problem is that the price of the house Has skyrocketed. As interest rates go back up, prices will level or maybe even come back down, because whether it's the price of the house or the interest rate.

"App word out of the White House today that the president and first lady will be traveling to Florida, at least to meet with some of the families of the victims of that collapsed condo tower. Story that will follow over the course of these the next few hours. Of course, the official death toll right now is 11. 150. People still missing. California is phasing out its state run youth prisons, shifting the burden to counties. The three state run lockups will stop admissions Thursday close in 2023. State is also moving oversight from the Corrections Department to the Health and Human Services Agency, a little bureaucratic shake up. Their advocates say that the move reflects their belief that Children who commit crimes can be reformed. Are better served closer to home. You remember on Friday. We're recovering the Derek Chauvin Sentencing and the former officer said. That really weirdly cryptic thing where he said to the family to George Floyd's family. There's going to be some other information in the future that will be of interest. And I hope these will give you some peace of mind. Yes. There's a TV station in Minneapolis WCC. Oh, that is reporting that they are close to reaching a plea deal in the civil rights trial, Okay? And that part of the plea deal would be the Derek Chauvin would have to publicly explain what he did to George Floyd. And why interesting, so that would give them some peace. Nothing is going to give them peace. Can't imagine short of bringing George Floyd back to life, but that may be an explanation of that sort of okay. That makes sense. Um, I don't know if that makes it any better for it just makes you angrier. You know, it's almost like Him, saying that he believes that will give them peace like he can explain himself like there's some way to explain why he acted like that right? And you've seen law enforcement officer after law enforcement officers say there's no reason why he should have behaved that way. So I don't know what the hell he thinks It makes me feel like he doesn't think he did anything wrong Still. If he's going to explain it away, right or that he's got some magic words that That he believes make it right. I don't know. It's very, very weird. A federal court has dismissed the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust complaint against Facebook. They said this judge that the Federal Trade Commission failed to provide evidence for its claim that the social media giant holds a monopoly when it comes to social networking. The judge in this case. Judge James Boasberg. US District Court for D. C held that the Federal Trade Commission failed to plead enough facts to plausibly established that Facebook has monopoly power in the market for personal social networking services. Colorado representative Ken Buck, top Republican co sponsor of the legislation to make it easier for the FTC and the Justice Department to break up the tech giants Facebook, Google Apple, Amazon says The rolling shows that antitrust reform is urgently needed that if the judge didn't side with them the way the law is, now that we need to rewrite it. Facebook stock, as you can imagine, Rose after the judge's ruling, boosting its market value passed $1 trillion, Only four companies in the United States are worth more. You guessed it. Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Alphabet. Alphabet, of course, the parent of of Google, Um in this separate decision, though, or a separate decision, the same judge dismissed entirely an antitrust suit against Facebook brought by a bunch of state governments, saying that they were waiting too long to challenge the Instagram and WhatsApp acquisitions that Facebook underwent completed nine and seven years ago respectively. Which is strange. They they talked about. Um, you mentioned Ken Buck the congressman out of Colorado. In this case, there's a group of lawmakers. Who put out a report last summer that accused Facebook of targeting these smaller startups like Instagram early on in Instagrams life, believing that they were a threat to what would be Facebook's power at the time, So they call this the by or bury strategy that helped Facebook maintain its status. As that top tier social networking company. That's how you do business. That's what I'm going to say. That's how capitalism is not to be Joe Biden and whisper to you, but that's exactly how you do it. Sound like the you know. I mean, didn't we all learned this from Richard Gere in Pretty Woman? Barrier by well, you didn't watch the whole movie. So you probably didn't get the whole lesson. But we all learned at an early age that this is how you build businesses didn't get past the whole. I think it past them watching. Leave it to Recently. It was I love Lucy. Yeah. Where she gets the strawberry seeds stuck in her teeth, and then she has to go to the bathroom to get him out. And he thinks she's doing drugs. Yeah, because the champagne brings out the flavor in the strawberries. Such a cute misunderstanding. True love. Um, so this doesn't necessarily mean that Mark Zuckerberg's worth a trillion dollars, right? I mean, he doesn't own every every share of stock and Facebook, but that is a pant load of money and remember Remember how Facebook started. This guy was doing something that would be completely banned on a college campus. These days. He was rating women on their looks. That's how the Facebook started. 2021 would have no appetite for young Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook's has said it's not a monopoly because it faces competition from many other platforms that let users interact or send messages. Google's YouTube Apple's I message. Other social networking sites like Snap Chat Twitter, LinkedIn and took talk and it's It's funny that it's like a bunch of old white guys that have, you know, signed off on to this. This, uh.

Federal Judge James Boasberg and the D C District Court dismissed the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust lawsuit that said Facebook engaged in a systemic strategy to eliminate threats to its monopoly. The judge said the FTC's case didn't even provide an estimated range for Facebook's market share over social networking. The judge did say the FTC could fix the cases, weaknesses and try again. He also dismissed an antitrust case filed by 48 States attorneys general saying too much time had elapsed between Facebook's acquisition of what's happened, Instagram and the filing of the suits. Some members of Congress said these rulings are proof that updated antitrust legislation is needed. That's Jessica Rosenthal reporting.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Rachel Martin, a federal judge dismissed two huge antitrust complaints against Facebook. It's a big win for that company. These suits were filed back in December one by the federal government and one by most of the country's attorneys general. But this does not mean Facebook is out of the hot seat by any stretch of the imagination for more. We're joined by NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond. Just a note. Facebook is among NPR's financial supporters, but we cover them like any other company, Shannon. Good morning. Good morning, Rachel. These lawsuits were thrown out at a very early stage of the process, right. What happened? Right, well the Federal Trade Commission and these 48 attorneys general, they had accused Facebook of crushing its competition by buying up rivals like Instagram and WhatsApp and suffocating other companies by preventing them from accessing its platform and data. Facebook disputed these claims. It said the government hadn't shown any illegal behavior and it asked the court to throw these students out. Yesterday, The judge largely agreed with the company and he tossed the complaints. So let's talk about that substance. What did the judge say was wrong with these cases? Well, of course, you know, we know Facebook posts more than two billion users around the world. It's the largest social network. But Judge James Boasberg says the FTC just needs to show more evidence to back up its claim that under the law, Facebook has monopoly so he's given the FTC 30 days to file a new complaint addressing his concerns. Now when it came to the state's case, the judge said their accusations about Instagram and WhatsApp just came too late. These were deals that were made years ago, right? Facebook bought Instagram in 2012 it about what's happened, 2014. Now, people I talked to said that was kind of surprising back at the time these deals were made. The states didn't look at whether they were good or bad. And yet now the judge is saying it's too late to object. I I spoke to Bill Cava sick. He's a former FTC chair and a law professor at George Washington. And he says these ruling show just how much of an uphill battle the government faces. You do not expect to get knocked out of the game. In the very first inning, and the judge has given them a very sobering reminder of how hard it will be to succeed with this kind of very difficult case, so this is no doubt Welcome news for Facebook. What are they saying? Well, yes, it's definitely a temporary reprieve. A spokesman says The company is pleased that the court recognized the quote defects in the government's case says Facebook competes fairly. Investors were also happy. The stock rose after the news. So Facebook's market cap has now passed $1 trillion for the first time. Very few companies can claim that So if this is a temporary win, what? What's the government's next move? Well, the FTC and the state attorney's general's say they're reviewing the judges opinions. They're weighing their options. I think we can expect them to re file this complaint. It may also appeal this dismissal. Certainly the FTC is not going to back down, Rachel, you know, it just got a new chairwoman, Lina Khan. She's an outspoken critic of big tech and cava sick. The former FTC chair I spoke with He told me he sees two paths forward for the agency. One is we're going to keep our foot on the accelerator when it comes to bringing tough cases, But the second path is to go to the Congress and say, See, this is why you have to do your job to give us better tools. When it comes to Congress. Right now, the House Judiciary Committee is advancing a bipartisan package of bills they seek to rein in big tech curb some of what it can do, and also beef up anti monopoly enforcement at agencies, including the FTC. And just yesterday, we heard from Democrats and Republicans on the committee. They're making that case. They're saying this is exactly why we need the kind of reforms we are proposing here.

"Course of the week. Facebook has won a major legal victory as a federal judge knocked down antitrust litigation filed by the FTC in several states. Federal Judge James Boasberg and the D C District Court dismissed the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust lawsuit that said Facebook engaged in a systemic strategy to eliminate threats to its monopoly. The judge said the FTC's case didn't even provide an estimated range for Facebook's market share over social networking. The judge did say the FTC could fix the cases, weaknesses and try again. He also dismissed an antitrust case filed by 48 States attorneys general saying too much time had elapsed between Facebook's acquisition of what's happened, Instagram and the filing of the suits. Some members of Congress said these rulings are proof that updated anti trust legislation is needed.

According to the White House, the president will likely tell Wisconsin voters that the deal is the largest investment in transportation in nearly a century, and it would create millions of jobs. Biden won Wisconsin by about 20,000 votes in November. Marty Michaelson reporting A judge this week dismissed the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust complaint against Facebook. NPR's Shannon Bond reports, the court ruled that the FTC did not prove that the social media site maintains a monopoly. Facebook, of course, boasts more than two billion users around the world. It's the world's largest social network. But Judge James Boasberg, he says the FTC needs to show more evidence to back up its claim that Facebook has a monopoly under the law, so he's given the FTC 30 days to file a new complaint.

It's a significant blow to attempts by regulators to rein in big tech. U. S. District Judge James Boasberg ruling Monday that the suits were legally insufficient and didn't provide enough evidence to prove that Facebook was a monopoly, and the ruling dismisses the complaint, but not the case. That means the FTC could re file a complaint with the U.

It's night side with Dan Ray until you easy. Boston news radio. Well, last hour. Um, we try to initiate a conversation about A corrupt FBI lawyer. By the name of Kevin Kline Smith. There are 13,000 FBI agents in the country and the vast majority of them try to do the right thing. But the problem is, I think that in the upper echelons For some period of time. There has been a tolerance of Abuse. This goes back to Jaeger Hoover as we talk as we talked about before, and I'm not going to bore you with the, uh, the stories of what I did in the 19 nineties and into the The first decade of the two thousands to uproot FBI corruption here in the Boston office. Um, I think most of you know that, but as a result, when I see this decision by a federal judge Through the head of the FISA court Judge James Boasberg to give the FBI Agent lawyer, Kevin Client, Smith mere probation and 400 hours of community service. And a special assessment of $100 to the court. No find woah Special assessment of $100. Now they're getting serious. This guy disgraced himself. This guy disgraced his office on basically lied on a wiretap application to secure wiretap authorization against Carter Page. Uh And that, of course, was the beginning of two years off. Of investigations of the Trump. Campaign and then the Trump presidency. And I don't care if you like Donald Trump or not, and I don't particularly like it. Donald Trump personally never met. The man never talked to the man. But No political figure in this country should be investigated unfairly by the FBI or the CIA or any agency. Okay, This guy is caught redhead that he pleads guilty and he's given Ah, years probation. That's it. Don't you think that some of the parents in the varsity blues scandal would like a year's probation now know they needed to go to jail? Um, you know Lori Laughlin and her husband, You know, they're shakers and Baker's out in Hollywood, but they need you to go to jail. Laughlin has already served her time against the husband is still in jail. Are in prison. Uh, this guy will never see a day behind bars. Now. I don't know. Maybe I'm going to go right to the phones. And if you want to talk about it great. I'm not going to beat you over the head with it. I'd love to hear from some honest Democrats in this one who even though it probably this whole investigation of Trump, I think helped eventually elected put a Democrat in the White House, which I'm sure Eyes from their perspective, a good thing and maybe from a lot of people's perspective, But you also have to denounce because of this abuse. If this injustice could be carried by the FBI by this guy, Kevin Kline Smith And get away with a slap on the wrist. It'll happen to other people. Mike in Braintree. Hey, Mike. Thanks for calling into that appreciated your next on nights. I go right ahead, Mike. You're a damn no problem, but I love the show. Um, just just thinking about this, You know, why would this FBI agent risk his career? You do this because he thought he could get away with it. No, no e mean, why would you think you could get away with it of Carter Page was working for the CIA. Has anybody looked into it? They know he couldn't get away with it. So my saw it was, he was told he was told by the CIA client, Smith was told by the CIA. That that Carter Page Carter Page had been an operational contact for the agency amusing the phrase operational contact. He chose to insert into the application that Paige was quote, not a source. For the CIA. Which directly contradicts which directly contradicts what he knew. Right. And so the blatant lie, and if anybody just looked into it, they would. Anybody could look into that and known that it was a lot well, but the problem is this. Here's well, here's the problem. Let me explain the problem to you. So so you have it, okay? Um when When an application For a wiretap is being made. Against you or me or Carter Page. We don't know about it. Okay, It's it's not. They don't call you up and say, Hey, Mike, Um, just to let you know the FBI is going to apply for wiretap against you. It's what they call it expert. But Right. They need evidence. No, Mike, let me explain. Let me explain it to you, Mike. Okay. They do need evidence. They do need some evidence. You're correct. Okay, but it's what's called an ex parte a presentation. Which means which means the FBI goes in to the court, without your knowledge, or in this case, without Carter Page is knowledge, and they make representations to the court..

"And Just did incredibly horrific things on But the regrettably that the judge in this matter, Federal Judge James Boasberg, uh, decided that Mr Client Smith, in spite of what he had done the egregious nature of his absolute unbridled abuse of power. Was was not going to be fine himself in custody. In fact, he was given 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service. Um, which just I find absolutely shocking. The judge at the time of sentencing, said the evidence persuaded him that quote Mr Client, Smith likely believed that what he had said about Mr Page was true. However, the prosecutors painted entirely different picture, and they made it clear how unlikely that possibility is. The evidence of Mr Clint Smith's animus towards Donald Trump is considerable. He was the target of this. Obviously, as for being an honest mistake, Consider this Mr Client, Smith changed an email confirming that Mr Page had been a CIA source to one that the was reflected the exact opposite entirely 100 degree opposite explicitly adding the words not a source. Before he forwarded that email. That's that is that is contaminating evidence. It's altering evidence that that is just goes against anything that purports to exist for for justice is the end result. This is an absolute abuse of the fives, abuse of the fires of process. It is a mischaracterization of evidence. It's it's every possible every conceivable type of abuse short of physical force that one could imagine. The prosecutors actually filed a brief arguing for prison time, including information on Mr Clients for the defendant on his behavior struck at the very core. The candor of the FISA court. Fundamentally, that is what the FISA court relies upon his honesty and candor and Mr Client, Smith allowed the FBI to conduct surveillance on a U. S. Citizen based on a FISA application at the Department of Justice later acknowledged lacked probable cause. Yet no time in custody. The prosecutors called for this present time for Mr Klein. Smith was also necessary to quote deter others from committing similar crimes. And I couldn't agree more that this is the This is the functionally equivalent of a local law enforcement officer. Deciding that they don't like you for some reason. And then they go out and collect. False evidence against you modified documents that describe you, your character, your background what you have done? And submit that to court to have a warrant issued for your arrest or to get a search warrant conducted on your place of business, your home your property wherever it may be. How does that sound to you? Does that sound like justice? And what would you want to see happen to a law enforcement officer who behaved in that fashion? This? This is just violates everything. That people should expect and want and in fact demand in terms of justice. There have. I can't begin to tell you how many cases in which I have been personally involved and and in an ancillary fashion involved in which there's there's absolute reliable knowledge is too who's come responsible for the commission of a crime. But until and unless you get the point that you can testify accordingly. You cannot. You cannot get to the point where you deprive another wise person of their rights. And that right include those rights, I should say, include their rights to privacy and their in their place of business, their home their records, all that goes with it. So to see this kind of flagrant violation in terms of abuse of authority and go virtually unpunished. This is not going to affect Mr Client Smith and negative way at all. And what he did was absolutely unconscionable and hey, is entitled to hate Donald Trump. He is absolutely entitled to that anybody is entitled to hate anybody. You could harbor that hatred all you want. But once you act on that, in a criminal way, you have breached everything for which you purportedly stand if you were a person in a position of authority, and that is exactly what Mr Klein Smith has done, there is ample evidence to prove that There's no question about the wrongfulness of the course of action he took. And now he's looking at 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service. How would you feel Have somebody in law enforcement developed some animosity toward you for some reason and fabricated evidence evidence against you and put you through a living hell experience. Would you be satisfied? With with 400 hours of community service and 12 month probation 12 months probation, I think not. And when you look at what has taken place on the streets of American cities over the last year, because people theoretically ostensibly are demanding justice, which I don't believe they are. Frankly, I think it's a whole other issue having very little to do with with poor George Floyd. How does in terms of us call for justice and energy and enthusiasm in that regard? What do you make of this? 808 34 15 38 108 34 15 31 to get your thoughts on this tremendous abuse of his authority. It'll result in no time in prison for what he did going right back. Don't go away.

"Even track closures there as well. I'm Vince colonies alongside Beverly Hallberg from the district Media Group and the Independent Women's Forum in this morning for Mary Walter. Good Morning, Beverly. Good morning. Good morning, Austin to the Great Joe did Jennifer He's a former U. S attorney to the District of Columbia and joins us now, Joe. Good morning. Good morning. We've got got some news over the weekend made me think of you because we always talk about this subject that the Durham investigation is effort to go after literally anybody. What little we found out that we did find that a federal judge On January, 29th sentenced now former FBI attorney Kevin Kline Smith to 12 months of probation for forging an email. That the epic time says resulted in 71 of several major errors in the applications to spy on former Trump Campaign adviser Carter Page. This was US District Court Judge James Boasberg. On referred to climb Smith's forgery is a quote inappropriate shortcuts. So we got a big old wrist slap from the court here. Joe diGenova, What do we make of it? Um, it's the staggering event in terms of accountability. For the Russian hoax. Here is a lawyer working for the FBI, a senior lawyer, by the way, one of those in charge of the investigation. Falsified a piece of evidence to the five the court, which was essential what he falsified was a document the CIA had informed the FBI that Carter Page was cooperating with them. In essence, he was an asset for the United States government, not a spy, not a Russian asset. An American asset inclined Smith changed the email to make it look like Carter Page was a Russian asset. It is inconceivable to me that Mr Klein Smith would not have gotten at least some minimal jail time. A Z a warning to other people, both in the intelligence community and the FBI and DOJ. About the importance of telling the truth to the fires of court. This incomprehensible result is calm, pounded by the fact that Judge BOS Berg is a Fiza court judge. On. So how he could have reached. This conclusion is beyond me. Uh, you know, judges were given great independence in sentencing. But I must say that this one just doesn't make any sense. And indeed it's almost you get the impression But the judge didn't want to sentence Mr Client Smith and was doing it just because he literally had to, um, it Z disappointing in this sense. We need to send a very strong signal the people in the FBI and the DOJ and the intelligence community about the importance of protecting the civil rights of American citizens. Remember five is used to spy on foreign officials, and when it's used to spy on Americans, there's a very high bar. And apparently, Judge Boasberg thought that that high bar had been met here again. It's incomprehensible this sentence, and one of the things that I found astonishing is that the judge did concur with the defense's argument. That Mr Klein's clients, Smith did not intend to lie. The thing that I think is astonishing about this is, of course, this affected Carter Page lives immensely. The falsified information that was released the news reported on this impacted his life, even if somebody even if it was true, and I don't know, through the believed that that Mr client Smith did not intend to lie. Shouldn't there still be tricks? Stricter punishment? For the harm that he caused to Carter Page. There's no doubt about that. I mean he, along with others in the the high command of the Department of Justice, and the FBI ruined Carter Page is life. They named him a Russian spy when in fact they knew he was not. He was just the opposite. He was a CIA asset. That is another reason. Beverly exactly what you've given for this to every Steve for Mr Klein Smith, who received some jail time some prison time. The notion that he didn't intend to lie is almost impossible to accept. Given his role as a lawyer and the falsification of a document. He literally changed the meaning of the document. How you do not intend to do that. Is beyond me as a lawyer and as a citizen. Move to the president's impeachment trial. A second impeachment trial be set to begin next week. We saw a report yesterday from The Associated Press that the president has parted ways with his lead. Impeachment lawyers that the team of lawyers that he was working with have left they claimed by The Associated Press is that the president wanted them to use a defense that relied on maintaining allegations of election fraud through the trial, So these attorneys leave and then we get another report last night that Maura attorneys have actually joined The team as well. What do you know, if anything about the president's legal defense team? And how should he construct a legal defense for this impeachment trial? Well, I don't know anything about the president's legal defense team. Other than what I have read in the press, including the latest developments you just alluded to, um I think it's pretty clear given the preliminary vote that was taken. On Rand Paul's motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction Which well, his his motion to dismiss failed 55 to 45. But in fact it one 45 to 55 by showing that there weren't enough votes to convict the president in any impeachment trial, which is why Tim Kaine is trying to get a censure motion passed. The problem with the center motion is the same problem as the impeachment trial itself. I do not believe it is constitutional. To put on trial. A former president or a former civil official. Impeachment is for removal from office and nothing else that without removal, there is no jurisdiction. It's pretty obvious that the situation that the president should argue is that the Senate has no jurisdiction. I would if you know if if that doesn't work Then he's gonna have to argue whatever he wants, including the legalities of for the unconstitutional conduct of several states in enacting election laws, which violated the U. S Constitution. You can do that without getting into the nuts and bolts of fraud. And all that you do with Texas argued in the Supreme Court, which the Supreme Court unfortunately thing here, which is states violated the U. S constitution by enacting laws in violation of the U. S constitution in in a way that couldn't be done because they did it through governors. And through secretaries of state, So apparently, we don't know what the president's going to argue because now got his new team literally within days of the trial. Do you think that this is an opportunity? Not just for the president but also for Republicans, since there isn't likely to be enough votes for a conviction for them to talk about election fraud, that this is a way to put it? In front and center in front of the American people. This is a way for Donald Trump or hit him to still be able to state the case that he had been stating up until inauguration day. So do you think this can be turned to an opportunity for them? Well, if it gets to the point where they discussed the actual election itself, I think the most important thing to discuss are the ways in which individual states like Pennsylvania and Michigan and Wisconsin. Violated the U. S constitution violated their own state laws by the manner in which they allowed mail out voting and other changes to certification of signatures and then ballots. And envelopes that to be is the key thing. Then if you want to get into areas such as keeping Republicans out of observation post, so they couldn't even see the opening of that a ballot and envelopes that today is where they should be going, if they if they get into the substance of it, you know, the amazing thing about all of this show is like what they've done is they've set up this framework will Donald Trump talking about any of this is what incited violence in America. And so what is their plan? Their plan is to give him a gigantic platform to have the same conversation. This is well, It's totally insane. Actually, there's no political strategy to it whatsoever. Well, there's not a strategy..
