Democrats Stuck After Mueller Testimony

"Democrats are sort of stuck between Iraq and a heart place. You spend two years telling your voters. The president trump will be ridden outta town on a rail because muller you're more shows up and it turns out that he is not solid it turns out that he is wavering it turns out that he doesn't know his own report. A Demo Republicans were basically able to establish that he was not familiar with his own stuff which means that it kind of felt like this was politically motivated and we're about have to find out in the next month whether this investigation was properly initiated and conducted Inspector General of the D._O._J.. Michael Horowitz is about to bring out a report about the beginnings of the trump Russia investigation. I'm sure that will be fascinating. Stuff is reported certainly on the Hillary investigation and was fascinating reading and pretty damning for a lot of the folks involved in all of this well Democrats are not going to let go of this and that includes the people who are most closely tied to it so Andrew McCabe who was fired from the F._B._i.. For lying to the F._B._I.. He lost his pension over it and that was because he lied to the F._B._i.. About whether he had spoken to the press with the permission of James Komi About Hillary Clinton's investigation well now Andrew McCabe is back on television suggesting it's time for Congress to pursue impeachment based on what he really can't explain not based on anything Muller said that we didn't already know for sure from my own experience at the very beginnings of this investigation we confronted some very hard choices choices that we knew would have negative repercussions on our organization on US personally and we made those choices anyway because it was our job and our duty to do so <hes> I feel strongly that that's the same position Congress's in now and they should step up to the plate and do their job. It doesn't mean that the president will be removed from office or should be removed for off from office or we'll be impeached but it is absolutely clear to me that the time has come for Congress to pursue a dedicated impeachment inquiry. This is becoming a talking point. People who are very invested in this thing are not going to let it go. It's good for trump because he can point to them. You can say listen you petty jerks. There's a full investigation. There is no recommendation of Prosecution Muller himself would not even answer whether he would prosecute me. Why in the world are we still still doing this routine? If you don't like me so much you can beat me at the ballot box by the way trump is beatable if we're all the talk about the Democrats being cast which is true right now. Trump is underwater in Ohio by four percentage points according to variables including morning consoles. He's he's underwater in Iowa now. He could still win those states. He's expected to win those states in fact against Democrat those just as popularity ratings still trump is vulnerable and yet democrats don't seem to want to run against trump. They seem to want to impeach him or at least talk about impeaching him for the purposes of smearing him as a Russian catspaw. Even though that all fell apart the other folks who were invested in this members of the media deeply invested C._N._n.. Everyday Breaking News Wolf Blitzer. We have a brand new piece of news. I work out every day and unfortunately the gym that I attend very often as C._N._N.. On and so I'm well aware of the chirons that C._N._N.. Runs every single day and the chirons for two years were about breaking news bombshell report trump's presidency over the Russia scandal explodes and then it turns out that the thing is a complete waste of time pretty much and C._N._N.. Ain't GonNa let that go because it makes them. Look bad so here on C._N._N.. Or folks yesterday trying to say listen listen listen just because Bob Muller appeared to be old and dithering doesn't mean that the underlying content isn't important guys. You're building this up because you thought that Bob Muller I was GONNA walk in like Tom Cruise in the top gun trailer and just own it and that is not the way this worked here is C._N._N..

Former Federal Prosecutor on Mueller Testimony

"Is the day after now we have the benefit of following up on the testimony of Robert Muller yesterday in the two house committees the judiciary in the intelligence committees immediately afterwards but now people have had a little bit of time to ruminate about what they heard what went on what it all meant and we have a couple of people who will be joining us this afternoon the first one I am delighted to say is Laurie Levenson Laurie Levenson is a professor of law at Loyola law school and she's also a former federal prosecutor and she joins us right now Hey Lori welcome to KGO thank you so much I'm so pleased to be with you I am pleased to have you as well I I don't know why but I didn't realize that you were a former federal prosecutor and I just think that gives you a different kind of look at what went on yesterday than those of us who are lay people especially those of us who aren't even lawyers so from the get go let's start it it out easy what did you think what was your overall impression of his testimony you know you're right I see things a little differently I think lot of people when they tuned in wanted to see the show and I was more interested in the information that we got so I so what mother many other peoples you know Bob Miller is not a great witness most lawyers are not that's not a comfortable role for him but that's not what mattered I think what was important was in the first session they were identifying four to five instances of obstruction and laying out what they believe the president and all these men did in that regard and the Republicans were using it for a totally different type of hearing they wanted this hearing to be held at the mall or investigation get started so was much more of a political show than it was but as we would say a legal proceeding I saw the hearing though before Adam ships committee a little differently for small Adam is a former federal prosecutor I had the pleasure working with him and his family just like that you know he sat out the theme that this is about this loyalty to the country and line and greed and I thought the questioning was much crisper at that point and I think Miller was giving up a little bit more than he had in the morning yeah in the morning it seemed as if a specially at the outset his questions were so limited and there were only certain areas that tended to animate him so a lot of the criticism that we heard immediately following and even into today and if you're reading newspaper articles today and especially if you tune into fox which I really try not to do that a lot of the criticism really does have to do with the performance of Robert Muller and not with the content the context of the information that was being presented what a lot of people say is that it didn't make any difference to the viewing public that most people had already taken a side on this and that based on Muller's testimony nobody is going to change their opinions you agree well I think that there is sort of this entrenchment in politics and along the parties we certainly saw that among the you know congressman who were there and they seem to just follow the pod poly it party flying but you know I am a little more optimistic I mean some of the messaging I do think that across there was and has been and continues to be tremendous Russian interference so to the extent that it gives the president stopped to acting cavalierly about his relationship with pollutants and stop saying things like well yeah I take that information again maybe that's a little bit of a step I don't think that people are going to believe that there's an exoneration but on the other hand I don't think a lot of people here so in the big steps now I don't think it moves the needle in open court and closer to impeachment in fact we may back off from it but the facts are a lot clearer having heard them from Bob Muller yeah I would have I will I want to believe this and so maybe that's the reason I say I would have work I am a member of the Judiciary Committee I would want to move forward with impeachment increase with it with the hearings not a voting right now on articles but moving forward and getting some of the other important figures from the Mahler report and others you know this doesn't have to be limited to what was disclosed in the mall report other witnesses to come in and to testify as to the corruption and the potential criminality in the high crimes and misdemeanors of the of Donald Trump wouldn't you well I think that's where they're headed I mean and I heard that during the hearing name suspect they really want don McGann to come in and testify I don't know if he's any better than Bob Muller is as a witness but I suspect he might be and he certainly had the direct contact with the president I'm here is that nobody got the president to actually provide a statement in person I think that's the biggest lacking in this entire investigation I don't disagree with you that continuing the requests for subpoenas makes sense but there's a trade off and that's what Nancy Pelosi saying she saying are we gonna lose our own people will never get the trump people but will we get lose our own people by being so busy focusing on that and not moving the needle on some real issues that need to be addressed problems out of the house out of the house they can do whatever they want to Mitch McConnell's going to kill it right and I'm you know and that's what the the patch for those who don't want to do impeachment is to say why are we going to do this when we know what's going to happen in the Senate but the outlook tournament of argument is we still don't have all the facts yet you know in my mind do you bring in more witnesses didn't have hope picks come in and don McGann but he just go for like the tax returns because if you have to pay that there are other directions all right lord let me ask you this and I'm I'm very serious about this were speaking by the way with Laurie Levenson she's a professor of law at Loyola and she's a former professor of federal prosecutor now I forget residents saying it was a so utterly important I don't remember anyway altera plunging okay you didn't mention well you're coming back here thought which is you know there was some discussion yesterday and whether he could be charged when he got out of office right and one does wonder what's happening up in New York that would be a normal jurisdiction for that to happen so you know all of this might just sort of be a way to say he's got to be held accountable when the hardest way but the way that's most important is that the coming election and it's frustrating I think that we didn't hear any of the major candidates yesterday remark on the ceiling two yeah none of whom said we second this is the guy who killed said scire Muller this is a guy who told people to lie and he's still somebody you're considering this is a guy who cozied up to the Russians welcome their information I just thought there was a huge irony when the Republicans were saying exoneration doesn't mean anything what was the president himself will interject at that so I nobody called him on the double speak they came after the hearing yeah and I I was very disappointed the democratic candidates because if they want to become president they will also be the head of the Democratic Party and so it's time for them to show that sort of leadership capability but in your comments you did remind me of what I had forgotten to say and it is important and it is bill bar bill bars the Attorney General of the United States and I suspect that he is somebody who can more readily more easily should he choose to obstruct investigations obstruct justice when it comes to president trump including those investigations are happening in federal courts outside of Washington DC how much should we be concerned about what bill bar is doing behind the scenes I am I'm actually very concerned you know when he first came into office I thought well you know he's career he is going to be loyal to doing what's right I don't have that same confidence anymore the what I'm most worried about is the investigation into the steel dossier in the beginning of the investigation I wanted to if you want to play politics he could twist that right against the Democrats and that would be much more damaging than anything that's happened up to now I think that's what they're attempting and there's another thing too and that also relates to some of what you were talking about when the president leaves office and and it Robert Muller made this clear yesterday certainly you can pursue criminal charges against him when he's no longer president except for the statute of limitations and he did not have an answer to that question the LC memo really didn't adequately address that so what does happen doesn't doesn't that by abiding by the LC terms you're assuming the president's only going to serve one term in office and otherwise if he's reelected is above the law well I think that's right I mean this all comes down to the election because I don't agree that that somehow and you told the time while he's in office if he gets a second term he's never going to be prosecuted and that's just a clear message that maybe has to go out to the public yeah I think I think that's absolutely true and I really appreciate you bringing that up listen let's get a one quick call here from one of our listeners before we go this is Lee calling from San Jose Lee welcome to KGO your own with Laurie Levenson go ahead that's wonderful I called the other day and I was very upset I read Gibbons decline and fall of the Roman Empire I could just about Roman history yeah are it and Bob and Cicero on duty right okay yes I'm scared but was just sort of had a scared chopped off are you are you we're gonna take Donald Trump to the guillotine no no well what's your question professor Levinson there's money and power yeah and and the thing is it is but err I will I used to be in touch with senator Robert Bork yes and we were we were to change letters in mail right yeah and he wrote losing America and that was when bush was president right so do you have a question for professor Levinson because I have limited time with her right now only no I understand I'm sorry it's okay I mean I I would like to respond to him yes please thank you Sir thank you Sir for realizing that what we face now is something that we've been warned about for centuries and then it comes down some of those basic values I think when Adam yes didn't get into the details but he got into what is at stake here as you mentioned before that really is what's at stake it's not about an individual prosecution it's not about an individual count it's not about about an element of the crime it's about the really big pictures and a threat to democracy so I don't mean to be overly dramatic but I think you're right on the spot I think we're being unduly dramatic at this point I mean it is turned into what some people view is a political game and the stakes as you said are so much higher than that we all need to pay attention and I do believe that Congress has to do its duty under the constitution and so do we as citizens we have to clamor for the kind of for the Congress to do its job and for the president to not be above the law and unless we do that man we set a precedent that I think it's scary you know I heard somebody that I respect tremendously yesterday he was actually in studio with me he's one of my colleagues and he said I'm opposed to impeachment Pat I'm opposed to impeach with because it overthrows the will of the people and I boggles my mind as well is it ever appropriate then because anytime you impeach an elected representative you're gonna overthrow the will of the people but there's a reason for it well you know I think that what we've learned is impeachment and politics can I like law a lot because it's a lot more certain were in really uncertain times thank you for having me on and thank you so much so it's been a pleasure talking with you eighty eighty a tennis or telephone number will come back with your telephone calls as we talk about the aftermath of the molar testimony and where do you think we go from here will the Democrats do you think by pursuing impeachment inquiry will they begin the hearings the hearings which really will allow them to get more witnesses and more information because the courts are going to be tilted toward what the Congress is asking for when what they are asking for is part and parcel of an impeachment investigation which is which is entirely within the purview of the Congress eighty eighty

"Stops neither do we be glad to know this is news radio seven Katie our age yeah so the leaked memo from manta from my Nancy Pelosi to a congressional Democrats who are gonna be questioning Bob Muller today in the Judiciary Committee and the Intel committee she sent a six page report to them so that they would all be on the same page and they were all repeat the same talking points reporter Samantha Jo Roth tweeted this out late last night the talking points from pelo C. six pages of them blame Russia saying quote the Russian government attack to the U. S. elections and trump in his campaign welcome to and sought Russia's help to win that's going to be the talking point from the Democrats they're going to launch their questions into Robert Muller with the predicate that the trump campaign did indeed collude and seek Russia's help to win that election which is exactly the opposite of what the written Muller reports said so they're going to try to literally sit there before Bob Mahler and tell him his report what is wrong and get him to acknowledge and admit his report is wrong that's why that memo that I told you about moments ago is so important the memo that Attorney General William Barr sent to Bob Muller saying you will come find your answers to the four corners of your written report which William are excuse me up Bob Muller requested because he does not want to have to go outside the boundaries of that report and that's exactly what the Democrats are a planned it to get him to do Adam Schiff has made a statement saying we will absolutely not limit our questions and demand answers that are within the boundaries of that report Adam Schiff is said we don't recognize the D. O. J.'s authority on this telling MSNBC yesterday quotes we don't recognize that limit limitation at all and what's more they don't recognize that limitation they say it's well established DOJ policy that the prosecutor can't talk about this or the department doesn't comment on people not indicted tell that to build bar if the Attorney General ignores the OJ policy then how does he have any right to ask Bob Muller or anyone else about anyone else to follow this policy when it's not a policy at all so the Democrats plan to ask Bob Muller to say things that he has not already said in his report and to this is where it becomes very very dangerous ground today to speculate they're gonna ask Bob Muller not to speak in the facts they be uncovered and put in his report but to speculate as to whether or not Donald Trump may have tried to obstruct so this is not testimony this is just gossip that what that's well said that's very well said yes that's that's that's precisely what it sounds like Mahler only wants that's why did want to be there today he knew what this was going to be he knew full well the Democrats are going to try to get him to change his report to say something publicly in this testimony that is a little bit different than what is reported in essentially that would invalidate the report if you share the goal here is clear if they have the report that says one thing that was submitted to the DOJ by the special counsel the final in full report but then he contradicts that report in any way when he gets trapped in questioning by the Democrats then that will be thrown into flocks now we have public statements to say one thing a public report that says another thing that means we can't trust any of and guess what that means they get to start all over they could start all over and say now we have new questions about pollution it isn't a Donald Trump wasn't clear after all because the man who wrote the report isn't sure we got him to say he wasn't sure in some question or another during this thing so yes it's gossip it's a show trial and it's going to be an attempt to trap Bob Muller into saying something a little bit different than what the written report says that's why Muller demi end date or not demanded the requested from Bob bill bar that letter that says you can't say anything you didn't say in the report because he doesn't want to have that conflict there the to be a public statement may Hey Bob from from the wrist written statement yes another take on this though this also opens the door to let Republicans ask anything they want yes it does now a if if Dick only to the report then what kind of questions to the Republicans acid didn't pertain to what's already there in the report so why not do it for them to yeah it does but I think the Republicans are perfectly happy to stick to the report because the report cleared the president the report cleared the president on collusion and did not have anything that was enough to charge or indict the president with a common instruction so the president the Republicans would be perfectly happy to just repeat the report president's clear president's team is clear let's move on and get on with the business of running the country so it's going to be explosive I really believe that it's five twenty eight my apologies Cordy.

Attorney General William Barr says Robert Mueller asked DOJ for guidance on testimony limits

"Over in the states Mahler's five our testimony today here is the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler no he does not have to comply with that lady doesn't work for them and that letter asks things that are there to be on the beach the power of the of the agency to ask even if he still work for them seems that nobody neither side knows what really is going on here on that particular point from Jerrold Nadler one of the new developments in the molar testimony is the fact that the story had come out where borrow the William Barr the Attorney General had sent Robert Muller a letter showing what the boundaries were of his testimony and it was assumed that bar send the letter which he did but what we found out yesterday was according to Robert Muller that it should be according to William Barr Robert Muller requested to the guidance from the department of justice Attorney General bill Barr told fox news on Tuesday but it was former special counsel Robert Muller Steen who asked the justice department to send Muller letter telling him to keep his upcoming testimony the house lawmakers within the boundaries of the public version of his Russia probe report the letter provoked criticism from Democrats you just heard some right there from Jerrold Nadler who also called it incredibly error again asked by fox news why the Monday letter was sent Barr said Muller staff as the department for guidance at his press conference Bob referring to Bob Muller Robert Muller had said this is a quote here at his press conference Bob and said that he intended to stick with the public reported not go beyond that are said in an interview and in conversations with the department his staff was reiterating that that was their position and they asked us for guidance in writing to explain or tell them what our position was so we're responded in writing the department sent the guidance that they had requested end of quote asked directly if it was mother who asked for the latter bar would plied yes the letter said by the way she should you testify the department understands the testimony regarding the work of the special counsel's office will be governed by the terms you outlined on may twenty ninth specifically that the information you discuss during your testimony appears in and does not go beyond the public version of your March twenty second two thousand nineteen report to the Attorney General or your may twenty ninth public statement end of quote speaking of fox news bar also hit back at Nadler who during a CNN interview called the letter incredibly error again for trying to instruct Mahler what to say Barr said quote he was misinformed as to the facts now that does show something it shows that Robert Muller apparently if that's the way the whole thing went down Robert Muller apparently wants that out that he can refer to over and over and over and over again wells with your request letter except the whole of the letter and say this is the official written guidance that we have gotten or you submit it if you have an opening statement you submit that with your opening statement and say requested the guidance here's a guide so we got back and then you raise it if you need it is that were Miller's going I don't know is that a possibility as to why you ask for of course it is I'm the other thing is that the reason I said that the Republicans know what's going on is because president trump on Tuesday blasted the house judiciary committee's decision to let former special counsel Robert Muller stop aid on the Russia investigation accompany him during his testimony before house lawmakers on Wednesday the skin from fox news he requested that Erin's doubly his former chief of staff and top aid be at the witness table during testimony fox news has told the intelligence committee will swear Sibley N. before sharing now will they ask him direct questions or will Mahler just referred to him if there's something that he's not clear on and therefore he will answer at that particular point I don't know from derided decision as unfair and a disgrace to our system hi a source close to Mahler told foxnews Erin simply was the deputy special counsel and had day to day oversight of the investigation conducted by the office he will accompany special counsel Mahler to Wednesday's hearing as was discussed with the committee more than a week ago Republicans have spoken out against a last minute change well they're claiming it wasn't a last minute change well they would know because of the committee was there and that agreement was made was a Republican the room word no Republicans in that room when it was done was it a week ago was that last minute so like I said can it seems to be confusion on on both

"And Bob Muller said listen that's my report and I'm sticking to it I'm not gonna go outside the scope of that report well we'll see how things go tomorrow when he testifies before the Judiciary Committee and the intelligence committee Serena Marshall is joining us from Washington reporting for ABC news and for KFI and Serena how does this change if he can bring his one of his deputies along with him Mister Saunders Jason Kerry that are going on up here on Capitol Hill at the new developments Miller has asked members of both committees not to bring his deputy Erin doubly with him to appear but to have Aaron doubly appear as a witness that means he would be sworn in to both of those committees and they would be allowed to ask him questions now there are the the committees themselves aren't sure if they're going to allow that at this time because they warranted it's kind of a curve ball if you well because they were planning on being able to ask him questions the only direct questions to Robert Muller so that is in a good situation that is still on going on here on Capitol Hill it's just about love where are we like twenty hours away no fifteen hours map isn't my strong suit and this I I would think that Democrats would like this because Bob Miller has said as we've talked about yesterday to it has said that he won't deviate from that from that report that is already in the hands of Americans in Congress at but this guy seems like he's a bit of a wild card that maybe he could opine further about things that are in the report and that's the question that's why they haven't agreed yet if they'll let him come up and be sworn in it seems at this moment are leaning toward allowing him to come up and be at the witness stand at the council but council aren't often sworn in so in that case our mother to confer with him before answering a question but you're right he didn't make that declaration but we do know the department of justice I did write a letter to Mahler telling him yesterday to stick only to his report as he said he was now is it along those lines sticking to his report Republicans have said they're going to ask about the origins of the investigation the origins of for example the FISA warrant on Carter page was there enough reference to that in that report we're we're that would actually come out where they're gonna talk about that at all or with the above Bob Miller say listen I'm only here to talk about the report itself there definitely was the background information of how it came to be as part of the report I mean we already know some of these this information it was in twenty thirteen that Carter page was first approached by Russian national in the FBI had later I used to be a common spy and he was secretly recorded in April of twenty thirteen talking with another accused by about efforts to recruit pages an intelligence source so we know how some of this background came to be and how it how it perpetuated but that is a good question of whether or not Republicans will trying get Miller to deviate remember Mahler is used to being on Capitol Hill he's his band before committees more than eighty times in his tenure at as being in the government that's as many as as most if not more than most people have ever testified before Congress he's one of the most experienced when the disease experienced prosecutor so this is going to be hard for him as a fairly especially someone who is prepared as much as he has in fact his spokesperson told us he's been preparing for weeks even with members of the former special counsels team yeah he's been preparing for weeks we found out the Democrats are going to go through their clothes locked door yeah come on that's can't be very fun to sit through but it also I you know the Republican war room preparing for this tooth so both sides are getting gearing up for Muller day tomorrow all right well happy Muller eve Teo Serena I don't think of it as exciting as Christmas I think that we've done with all our cake tomorrow and a delivery now you guys the last thing I want is a cake with Bob Miller's by god it wouldn't be the only one I guarantee ari Serena thank you when we come back we're gonna talk a little bit more about the budget deal that was reached because it looks like there will be no shut down at least not anytime soon and what we can expect in this debate coming up a week from today edge of your seat but Kamel Harris and Cory Booker are gonna tag team on Joe Biden when it comes to his nineteen ninety four crime

House Democrat says support lacking for Trump impeachment inquiry

"Jerry Nadler, here in the situation room, just moments ago, telling me and I'm quoting him, now, it may very well, come to a formal impeachment inquiry. Let's get some reaction from our political and legal experts, and Gloria borger. What do you think he's, he's holding out that possibility? Very clearly, but he doesn't seem in any rush. You know, he he says it might come to that. But not so fast. I think he's in the Nancy Pelosi school here. How it'll end that is I'm gonna try and get people before my committee. He said to you. It's important that Bob Muller testifies. He thinks he's a public servant he thinks he's going to be able to get them to testify publicly because that is what they want important for the for the American public to hear what he has to say because not everyone has read the Muller report is imported out. So I think what he's saying to you is one foot in front of the other, and we're not going to be pushed into this. But first, we have to tell the story to the American public new also make clear. He wants to make sure that. There's a consensus among the democratic leadership that he and Nancy Pelosi the speaker on the same page. That's right in one of the things that he said, was at this point. There's just not the support in his caucus. Their course or this very vocal minority of folks who do one and peach man inquiry do one. I'm peach mate charges file, but they're not enough of them yet. We'll see how this goes day by day they're doing. They do seem to be louder and they do seem to be more of them. But I was just sort of struck by Jerry Nadler's basic tone. I mean, there was no sense of urgency really. If you've certainly compare him to what we hear from progressives in the folks, you really want to March and worth impeachment. He was very measured almost diffident in terms of where they stand right now in terms of this impeachment incudes interested. Bionic is nearly half of the Democrats on the judiciary committee want to begin some sort of formal impeachment proceeding, fifty nine Democrats in the house out of two hundred and thirty five want to do so, so it's not it's not happening yet. Well, and he made. They have been addressing some of their concerns by seemingly stating that what they're doing. Now is not so different from an inquiry. He said, they're just maybe a few levels of the process that would be different. If in fact, they did launch an official inquiry, but he made it seem I agree with the panel as if they are making inroads, and they are continuing to do the work that they are focusing on right now. Now what did stand out, and maybe it was just an oversight. But you specifically asked him if he was on the same page with Nancy Pelosi. He didn't say, yes, he also didn't say, no, but, but he did say, you know, if if that's what it'll take, we will get there. We're not there yet, but it didn't give you a yes or no definitive answer. Also from the legal standpoint, allure coats, would it make much of a difference in obtaining documents from the administration in getting witnesses to appear before the committee if there was a formal formal proceeding underweight as opposed to the informal employee that's going on. Well, yes, I mean the participator prosperity saying they've done their nose at it. Can. Continuously because they have to rely on the court to kind of enforce it and hope that the courts will say, there's no good legislative reason to have this and kind of dismiss it. But in reality, the impeachment inquiry, gives a great deal more power. They don't have to have legislative purpose as their basis. That is the constitutional purpose. That's there also opens the floodgates you don't have to the rule, sixty there have to think about the notions of whether or not they have to have is an oversight function alone. Is it tied enough? They need all these details for legislation. They could simply say, look the constitution guarantees the right to have oversight and accountability in the executive branch of government. We're doing just that. So it does open more avenues. But remember again, as we're all saying, this is the political process and political processes, don't have the same level of common sense, perhaps, as the judicial process going

"bob muller" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"We've heard from Democrats in the media ever since the one person we haven't heard her should say, a person, we haven't heard from is somebody to take the president side, other than me. Offer that to you now on Fox News yesterday. Former congressman, Trey Goudy did his very best to point out the obvious that I've been doing this morning, and that is there is not a prosecutable case against Donald Trump. Cut seventeen. Yeah, couple of evidentiary thresholds may takes probable cause to indict someone or arrest them, but it takes beyond a reasonable doubt to get a conviction and most prosecutors. If you don't have a realistic, likelihood of a successful outcome. You're not gonna try to case so you can have probable cause you could get an indictment. You could get interest war. But you got no chance of winning. I don't know where this falls in the evidently, I think it's above no evidence, but whether or not it's enough to of indicted. Look, I'll listen everywhere of his press conference. I still don't know whether or not he would have died, but for that. Oh, L C opinion, that discrepancy, people are pointing to between what Bill Barr had said, Miller told him Muller said today that, that was the stumbling block walked for him on destruction. I'm still not clear, whether that I don't know this is one of the president's options, and I'm not his lawyer not ever going to be as lawyer. But you know, you can wave any right? You have Dana, you have the right to remain silent, but you can talk to the police, if you want to you have a right to a jury trial, but you can plead guilty if you want to I'll bet the president has the right to say, go ahead and me if you have enough of the supreme court's never said that I can't be indicted, this DOJ. I'm the head of the O J. I run the executive branch. If you have enough to indict me, go ahead and do it. At least you have some clarity, what you're going to have now for the next fourteen months is an impeachment investigation by folks who've already made up their mind. Sixty of them wanted to impeach him before Muller wrote a single syllable of his report, the jury's never gonna convicting, so we're going to be in this state of chaos for the next fourteen months. Because the problem is we don't need to be in that state of chaos. Because as conflicting as Muller was in his statement yesterday, which a lot of that contradicted, what he wrote in the actual report, the one thing that cannot be misunderstood or misconstrued is that he said, we have insufficient evidence. Insufficient evidence to support a conspiracy charge not enough evidence to even charge him. I e indict him and then insufficient evidence to prove that he obstructed Justice. The only thing that makes it confusing is that he reversed it instead insufficient evidence to prove didn't obstruct Justice, no court of law in the history of this country to my knowledge has ever brought a case for her to case, rather, when somebody was just accused of not being able to prove they didn't do something as I said before his plane as it is to say I used myself I use Muller now. Bob Muller might be a murderer. Bob Muller might be a murderer. Now, I don't have any evidence to say that he is. But he hasn't shown any evidence to say that he's not. And since Bob Muller hasn't display giving me any evidence to prove he's not a murderer. If you wanna consider him one, you can do that. Justifiably now. That's insane. Right. That would be highly irresponsible of me if I meant that, and if I wasn't using it as an example, but that's what he's doing to the president. Donald trump. We don't have any evidence of struck to Justice, but we don't have any evidence that he did didn't obstruct Justice, so you can go out and assume that he did. That's not how the system works. Let's go to Winston Salem North Carolina. And that's where we find gray on the Hugh Hewitt Show gray spots, sitting in for Hugh go right ahead. Hey, bob. Thank you, a quick thing. Bob Muller might be a conspiracy guilty of conspiracy after the fact for murder when you consider tenure in Boston as head of that office there and their whole entanglement with Whitey Bulger, but that's a whole different story. That's not why I called to say that. I think Bob Muller is a petulant child what he really wanted was to get an interview with the president, so he could charge him with false statements with except for metaphor. Gates and Cohen. All the people who are in Trump orbit, who were charged with we're all charts, making false statements, and I heard a long form interview with him at flood in Byron York. And Emmett flood said that, that Bob or kept asking for an interview. Review with the president, and, and Emmett flood said, why we give everything he said, Bill free this being, but that will not that will not last you will not get that to prevail in court. And if you recall when Bill Clinton was under investigation by a different law, but especially council nonetheless, they did subpoena the president sitting president, what the peanut in all the subpoena was withdrawn it led to an interview in front of a federal judge, where Bill Clinton lied and was was was held accountable for perjury and lost all like five years and paid us -nificant fine. So they really just wanted to trap him but but, but Trump lawyers did a masterful job, Trump one. This is a complete exoneration. And he looked like a sad. But that it man don't call him Robert anymore either. He's bob. Well, I'll be calling him Bob Muller from the very beginning. You, you, you, you said a mouthful there, and, and the most important word that you said there was trap. That's what was trying to do. It's why he wanted Trump to sit down with them into why thank goodness, the president has attorneys were wise enough to counsel them to not sit down with him because it was going to be a perjury trap. We all know how this works. It's been covered ad nauseam. You get a prosecutor sitting down with a witness who especially defendant, or, you know, somebody who is suspected of committing a crime in this investigation. The defendant does not know what the prosecutor knows. So the prosecutor can very easily ask questions or of the witness that he already knows the answer to the witness does not know if the is even just remembers it incorrectly. It can be construed as perjury. You said something that's not true. Well, not intentional. You ask me about something from, you know, years ago that I do not recall, as well as you do you already have the that's why they call it a perjury trap. And that's why. And that's why jaysekulow and Rudy Giuliani. And his attorneys told him not to sit down on told the president of the United States is speaking live now to reporters on the tarmac. Let's go live to the president..

"Heard from Bob Muller earlier today, trying to figure out exactly what he said. It's not easy different interpretation Scott Jennings from run, switch PR one of my inside the swamp guys with us this afternoon. Scott hang tight wanna play on your colleagues, because you're on CNN all the time, Danna bash had to say about all this. He's saying, look the president, you know, could've committed a crime here. Maybe did commit a crime here. Because if he by saying explicitly, if I could clear him, I would have the flip side of that is he committed a crime? I did not have the power to -cially to pursue it Scott Jennings. That's one of your colleagues there, Dan abashed you agree with that? Well, I agree that the only outcome that can be had now is rarely in the lap of Nancy Pelosi. I mean I hear a lot of people screaming about all of this today, and there's a lot of folks mad about it. But if you wanna be mad at somebody that you're not getting the outcome. You want talk to Nancy Pelosi because most Democrats want to impeach the president. I think if you put the articles of impeachment on the health floor, there's not one that would vote against it. And she is the one who standing in the way. So I don't know. You know what the special counsel was trying to communicate other than by the way he has completely turned to standard of Justice on its head. It used to be, you know, guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Now is, you know, Winston's winter prosecutors exonerate people. That's not the way this works. But the, the, the, the condition that we're in Mark is there's a, there is a way to fix this. There's a wait, there's a remedy. It's called impeachment and Pelosi's your roadblocks. But when he goes up that you look, I think there's another one of those situations where the side that hates Trump or believes he broke the law. They're not changing their minds. The side that says there was nothing here. You know there's no collusion. We don't care about this other stuff. I don't think they're changing their minds here was an interesting news conference. And he basically said, in in my opinion, nothing new then was in the report and went further than that saying, look, if, if I have testify, which I'm not going to do, but you subpoena me, I'm pretty much going to say everything. I said today or what's in the report, nothing new? Yeah. That's exactly right. And he said, nothing new he would not say anything new in an investigation subpoena setting in front of the congress or you're now saying that he thinks molar has to testify. This is all a big scam. It is a scam to delay. It is a Stanford just push off the question of impeachment, the Democrats in the leadership. Don't wanna do it even though everybody in their conference wants to do it, sixty plus percent of democrat nationally wanna do it and everything they do. And they say is just a stand in a way to try to buy more time because they don't want to do if you wanna be mad about this today. Coleman people overseas office. Let's finally have it out on impeachment and see what happens because that really is the last true more to walk through here. There's nothing else that Muller is going to stay or would say that your last best hope if you want to end this presidency, then, pull the trigger, otherwise as a John Kennedy from Louisiana said the other day to you don't want to get off. The pot. All right. So look, the, the speaker thinks that the president wants to be impeach. Do you, Doug high on, you know, Doug, another CNN correspondent were pundit? He he felt like he might have been onto something there. So do you think that's one of the reasons she's not going to do that? Because politically, this may work in the president's favor. Well, I think it might work in the president's favor, but no, I don't think any president wants to be impeached. I mean, look, I mean, it would be a stain. I mean, even if he wins a second term, the idea that you were impeached, and it's sort of destroyed. You know most of your first term. No. I don't think anybody wants to be impeached. Everybody wants to be successful into heaven normal presidency. Look at this guy for two years, he's had his term sucked up by the rush investigation. And now for the next two years Pelosi, and company wanted to debilitate him with investigations impossibly possibly impeachment. Nobody wants this. But I'll tell you this if it if it put some closure on this whole thing, which he's sorely needs. That would be a positive outcome. We cannot just go on forever. Endlessly debating things that we already know we everything we know we're gonna know there's nothing else to nose. So let's stop. Let's stop the games and make a decision here. I, I agree with you. But guess what? I don't think that's going to happen. I think the games continued this is going to extend the discussion about impeachment and probably not lead to Nancy Pelosi pushing the the go button on that. So I don't know where this leaves us through the rest of the summer, I do think, and you have to sense, is that the American people are done with this stuff for the most part. And they except for the side, that is veraciously interested in nothing else, except for bringing down Trump. Yeah. I think the American people are done with it. I think the Democrats are decidedly, not done with all the polling on it is clear. They want this president, the ended right male, and I think they had so little confidence in the people that they have running for president. There's a lot of them that believe the only way to get Trump out of the White House, if not to wait for an election. But to impeach the guy tried to throw him out and to try to render this president the illegitimate. That's how little confidence, they have they can actually win the next election, which is pretty pathetic state of their party. If you ask me, what do you make of Justin Amash right now? And his moves. A monster. They ridiculous. Even being first of all, these people who are trying to portray into some, you know, this is a Republican in good standing. He's never been a Republican in good standing. He's a libertarian. If you look at the House, Republican conference voting records, he has the worst voting record as it relates to voting for the Republican Trump agenda. He's literally and land point literally in last place. And he has always been a contrarian to the party. I don't think he thinks of himself as an actual Republican. I see today everybody's making a big deal about folks at his town hall meeting, getting into standing ovation who shows up a town hall meetings, the angry mob. And so you go out and say, I want to impeach the president is gonna show up at the next town hall meeting. The angry Bob like if I took a poll, Mark of a hundred Democrats and found out one hundred people wanted to impeach the president. Would that be news? Of course, not this whole thing is nothing but it he's just aren't of a narrative. He's just part of a narrative now. The Republicans up there and nationally don't think of just in a modules one of them he will not be Republican, and I suspect, he's going to get beaten his next primary. You know, when it comes to the election next year, too, you've probably seen this. There's another piece. That's in the New York Times, I think it was in there today, and I've seen some other polling on this that say that the forecasting models right now. And you and I've talked about this a little bit. But this is continuing into the summer of two thousand nineteen that, you know, the economy and he comments he drive presidential election outcomes, and things are lining up pretty favorably for Trump right now, which again has to drive the Democrats crazy. Yeah. Historically at thirty two incumbent president run for reelection. Twenty two have been Victoria, so incumbency as an indicator, a lot of the economic forecasting model show advantage for Trump. You know that doesn't mean they will hold in the future. And I certainly think he could blow this. I mean, the prolonged trade war with China, if it were to somehow reduce economic growth, or God forbid pushes into a recession and negative. Growth saying the first second quarter next year. That would be a disaster for him. But I mean right now, you look at the resilience of the American economy, low unemployment rising wages growth is still going it. You have these Democrats out there. They're trying to talk it down, while the American people are saying, we've never had it so good. I just think there's an incongruity between where the Democrats want to tell us things are, and where things actually are at all. Trump has to do frankly is presided over it. It not step on it, which is more than capable of doing, but that's really his step on the progress, you creating Scott Jennings. You know what I'm not even going to speak of the unspeakable. I'm not going to bring it up because it's not right now we're going to focus on the blues. Right. I'm going to impeach the bullpen. I'm going to impeach the hitting. I'm gonna impeach the batting average. I've been peaching at all. Yes, I'm going to vote for it is. All right. So we already did what we said, we're going to do Scott Jennings. We'll talk soon. Take care. Thank. Thank. One jennings. Of course a big cardinals fan. We talk redbird baseball, most of the time, we skipped at this time, sort of need IT solutions. Visit our friends at Marco at Marco net dot com. For more information. Time for news update, here's Carol. Cory Booker calling on fellow congressional Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings immediately in the wake of special counsel, Robert Muller's public statement on whether President Trump obstructed Justice.

Nancy Pelosi, Robert Muller And President discussed on Markley and Van Camp

"Trump, little speech today. Yeah. Not happy. Maybe some political theater going on as President Trump called off a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats barely. He told Chuck and Nancy to go pound sand until these investigations end. Well, they were supposed to have this meeting today. And then he says, I'm I supposed to feel they're talking about I'm, you know, covering stuff up there saying, I'm engaged in a cover up there, saying that potentially I need to be impeached. I mean, here's the president in this last minute rose garden announcement caught everybody off guard. It seems so I came here to do a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats. Not really thinking they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate, and I just saw that Nancy Pelosi just before meeting made the statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up. Well, it turns out on the most, I think most of you would agree to this. I'm the most transparent president probably in the history of this country and instead of. Walk it in happily into a meeting. I walk into look at people that are just said that I was doing a cover up, I don't do cover ups, you people know that probably better than anybody. I wanna do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you wanna do. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations of with get the phony investigations over with quit doing this, 'cause can I work with these people when this keeps going I can understand where he's coming from because if you have if you're really trying to, to meet in the middle how can you have a conversation with somebody like that when they're saying that I mean wh-what Nancy Pelosi say this morning? Not only that he's engaged in a cover up. But I pray for the president of the United States in this whole country. Oh, gosh. When you have the melodrama going on. How are you supposed to actually try to get anything done? When you have people who are acting unreasonably at times, how are we supposed to actually come to the table and negotiate. What is this really about this is about Democrats going to Nancy saying, we got a beach, even though she said, for while this is a bad move. We should not do this, and now you have so many. Crafts, knocking down her door saying, we've got to do this. Nancy, right. And so then she comes out with her statement to fees people, and, yeah, it gets in the way of working together on pretty much anything ask you this. If you are the GOP. And if you are the Republican party is this something you welcome almost? I mean I'm not saying you open the door, but I'm saying is this the worst thing, because isn't this already one of those things that we've decided this one time. And now you want to reboot on the whole investigate. And now aren't the American people are gonna go okay enough already? Yeah. I mean can't this bite you in the tail? Absolutely. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I welcome it impeachment proceeding one. Because if there is, if there is something still somehow that wasn't uncovered by Robert Muller, we should know that. But then also because politically assuming there isn't anything else. It helps Trump, and it helps the Republican party, because they can point and look at the Democrats say even after you had one guy, who's entire existence was centered around investigating this president in Bob Muller. Right. That's all he did for two years. Didn't come up with enough to consider charging the president's apparently and Democrats want the do over it was ridiculous duty rat. Yes, exactly. I mean, here you, are you are charged with a crime. The crime is investigated your vindicated and the prosecution doesn't like the outcome and they want to retry you for the same crime, but it's because there were some very concerning things. And in fact, Robert Muller wasn't going to be the final word on everything. He just left us a roadmap. That's what Democrats are saying. But what did we know Rafter it happened? Okay. There was no collusion obstruction. Well, you may have tried but it didn't succeed. There are people to stop him. And so then you're getting into well, it was not enough for Muller to say yet, we're going to charge him with obstruction. That's up to you bar, and he knew exactly where that was going to go. So how much do you want to say? No. But he dried. Yeah. The cartoon balloon above his head. But I think as far as, you know, Democrats that may play to the base, but you got to have more than the base when you're looking at him the twenty twenty election. We'll see where the whole

"It was a week of mounting tension in Washington between the Trump administration and Democrats in congress attorney general William Barr refused to testify Thursday before the House Judiciary committee in his place. An empty chair chairman Jerrold Nadler says if bar does not hand over the unredacted Muller report and its underlying evidence. The attorney general will be held in contempt of congress history will judge us for how we face this challenge. We will all be held accountable. In one way or the other. And if he does not provide this committee with the information at demands and the respect it deserves is the bars moment of accountability will come soon enough. The Justice department objected to Democrats demand that bar take questions from staff attorneys who worked for members of congress. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy defended bars absence, one time has staff question the cabinet level of oil. And that was during the impeachment hearing that same day speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi accused of committing a crime or from ABC's Mona Kosar Abdi on Capitol Hill. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says the attorney general line to congress about his handling of the Malla report. The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the congress of the United States. That's a crime below sea. Then accused bar of now being loyal to his oath of office. But rather to the president nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States and not the attorney General Motors are Aldi ABC news, Capitol Hill. The Justice department called Pelosi's words, reckless irresponsible and false many Democrats want the attorney general to resign are did testify about the mother report Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary committee where he faced tough questions about the Muller letter. ABC's Mary, Bruce, covered it all from the capital just hours before news. Broken Muller had complained to the attorney general about bars decision to release his own summary of the reports conclusions Muller voiced his frustration in a letter to bar on March twenty seventh writing the attorney general summary did not fully capture the context nature and substance of this offices work and conclusions. Adding there is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation, the letters its navy, and I think it was probably written by one of his staff. People Muller wrote his own summaries of the report and twice as Barda released them, but Barr refused. The two men later talked on the phone and bar insists Muller did not accuse him of misrepresenting. The report there were not taken of. Of the call. May we have those notes? No, why not. Why should you have bar new of Muller's concerns when he testified last month, but he didn't reveal them when asked about concerns from the special counsels team members of the special counsel team are frustrated at some level with limited information included in March twenty four th letter that it does not adequately accurately necessarily portray the reports findings do you know what they're referencing with that. No, I don't Democrats demanded to know why he didn't tell them about Muller's letter. You say you were not aware of concerns by answer to question. And the question was relating to unidentified members. I talked directly to Bob Muller. Not members of his team for your

Warren calls on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings

"It is the day after the Muller reports. Perhaps not surprisingly few mines have been changed. But within the Democratic Party. There is a growing debate about what to do next now that they have these four hundred forty eight pages worth of details and some of questionable conduct to impeach. You're not doing peach. That's the question now before Democrats, Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Senator and presidential candidate just tweeted that House Democrats shouldn't eat stored impeachment proceedings against President Trump based off of the mullahs report. So we turn now to Adam Schiff democratic congressman from Burbank, chairman of the house intelligence committee congressman where do you come down on the prospect of impeaching the president? Well, we don't have the full report yet. I think it's important for us to see the reporter Nando lying evidence. But there's certainly enough for us to have the conversation, which we plan to have in the coming week about what's the import of this Muller clearly felt that while he could not indict the sitting president that it should be put before congress and congress side there. Other remedies the remedy of impeachment. So that's a conversation. We're going to have unquestionably reports details highly unethical conduct perhaps criminal conduct when it came to obstruction of Justice, and and eagerness or willingness accept the help of a hostile for power in a normal world of that would be certainly within the realm of peachable conduct the challenge that we have is we have a Republican party in particular leadership Kevin McCarthy that place party and president of everything else they've formed affectively cocaine personality around the present. Becomes an isn't waiting for the full report, isn't that kind of a stalling tactic? Because that's going to take a while. Probably. And again, I've read it and the amount that's redacted is really not that much. Maybe about ten percent of the whole thing. If you read the entire former plus pages, he pretty much have an idea. What went on in the White House enough to decide whether you think or don't think the president ought to be impeached. Why do you need to wait for the ten percents? Not gonna add that much. Well, first of all, we're we're less well over twenty four hours since the release of the port. So I think we ought to take little more time than that to make a decision about whether we want to piecemeal preceding, the president night states. Then obviously would have very percussions and interim of me that the rest of the country's legislative agenda for the next two years, but affectively be tied up or stalled now that may be decision nonetheless. But it's not something we should do a cavalier fashioned. We yes, we have a report in which about a third of the pages contain reductions, but we can see a lot of deeply corrupt conduct of the pages that are not protected, but we still don't have any of the underlying evidence. We don't have any of the counter Chelsea report, which looks like it was compiled separately from the mother report. So there's a great deal. We still do not know and probably the most of every factor though is. How do we way an impeachment proceeding when the person's conduct may will rise to that level when you have Republican party that is utterly unwilling to scrutinize the president's conduct when such a proceeding at least at this point would be likely due to failure in the Senate. Will there are those who still feel would be important to try even if you know it's gonna fail you make the effort you get it out there. You have the hearings are you in that camp? Or no. Here's the thing. It's not a binary choice. It's not a choice either. We do in a peach mint, and where we do no oversight whatsoever. We are going to be doing all the oversight. We're going to be doing the investigative hearings. Indeed, we've been doing those already. It's just a question at this point of whether that is done in the context of impeachment or whether it's done in the context of our ordinary oversights and that decision as consequential one. And I think before we put the country through the wrenching experience of an impeachment. We need to weigh heavily just what that would mean. In terms of the effect on the entire congress in the sense of not being able to work on red and butter issues, helping families or a decent income and save for retirement and provide health care would we still be able to do that in the context of an peach. So those issues that we're going to have to grapple is. It's a decision that will be made it a higher pay grade than mine. But but it's a conversation that we're gonna have. But now that the entire report is out or or at least a large amount of it, minus the redacted material. Do you think that Bob Muller topped out by not reaching some sort of conclusion if even if he wasn't going to go ahead and take action on it? He doesn't really give his opinion, although you can read between the lines, I suppose, but he doesn't give an opinion on what he thinks off to be done. I understand why it's deeply unsatisfying for many people that mother did not applying on the ultimate question to the president committed crime. It wasn't all that surprising to me because mother is very conservative in a right way. But rather in a conservative 'institutionalised that he was going to leave a decision that momentous to the congress aware of that he would take the position that he was found by the opposite legal counsel opinion that you candidate a sitting president, and he would preserve the evidence for the time when the president is out of office and prosecutors could then decide with the prison should be prosecuted. So I don't think it's unexpected. What I do think what is unexpected and not what mother was an tipping or desiring was that attorney general bar would insert himself and era gay to himself to make that decision. Ball is turning out to be. You know, some of us this job the way Rudy Giuliani. Use is that the president's personal lawyer rather than the the highest law enforcement office in the land. And that is certainly a a service of the country. There's just too many discrepancies between what he said in the press conference. And then the actual text that everyone could read about an hour and a half later. No question about it. He misrepresented with Muller had to say why he said about the section of Justice any misrepresented with mother had to say collusion Muller makes no claim of no collusion that was something bar said because it would be pleased to the president and his allies could Trump at around the land of. But that's not at all about Muller found. He's out in fact, that there were any number of meetings between Trump campaign people on the Russians from campaign people are only too happy to see Russian help. And none of about it to the attention sorties. And yes, there were problems of proof in establishing. Criminal conspiracy. But more makes it very clear that's a different question than whether collusion occurred, which is what most lay people would consider the meeting at Trump Tower among many others who I just got the job is there enough in the performance of the attorney general thus far to make congress rethink its decision. Well, you know, I think it terms Cerny general he should have never been confirmed for the post. He certainly should not have been confirmed without recusing himself through an investigation in which you had such an obvious bias the the question that presents as you point out is what's the congress do about it Lyn one party refuses to stand up to the unethical conduct of the present. And that's not an easy

Rep. Adam Schiff: Mueller report condemns, it doesn't vindicate

"More. Now on our top story reaction to the release of the Miller report, California, congressman democrat, Adam Schiff chair of the house Intel. L committee still floating the concept of impeachment even though the report finds no evidence of Trump Russia collusion. Here's congressman Schiff. We need to look at the full report, certainly what Bob Muller has revealed on the obstruction of Justice issue is the most concerning because that of course involves the president's own conduct his own falsehoods. The American people is efforts to get other people to tell lies is effort to deter people in cooperating with the investigation is effort to reward those who stuck to the party line and congressman Schiff continues those acts of obstruction of Justice, whether they are criminal or not are deeply alarming in the president of the United States. And it's clear the special counsel Muller wanted the congress to consider the repercussions and the consequences. It is clear the special counsel believed that no one was above the law, and that includes the president of the United States.

"bob muller" Discussed on Stay Tuned with Preet

"So they were prepared maybe they're prepared by the team in an abundance of caution. And some members of the team thought, it would be helpful. But at the end of the day, Bob Muller thought of his task is narrow and didn't think that he should be dictation to Bill bar or anyone else? What in fact should be released? That's the best sense. I have things, but there's another interesting thing related to your question to your point that Bill bar said in his testimony before the house this week. And that is that even though Bill bar did not consult with Bob Muller and his team in the preparation of the letter the four-page letter and Bob Muller and his team were not involved in the preparation of that letter bar did say that he offered Muller the opportunity to take a look at the letter before it was released and Bob Muller declined that request. That's sort of interesting in various people have different views of what that means. It seems to me pretty smart move by Muller probably thought his report speaks for itself, and that should become public in some form at some point in the future. And why allow Bill bar or someone else to say that Muller took a look at the summary and implicitly approved the summary. It's a very difficult thing. I think if you've written a three or four hundred page report to think that four page summary. Does it Justice especially given as you say in your in your question that they had prepared their own summaries? Probably better for Bob Muller to let Bill bar own his own summary and for Bob Muller to own his own report. And we'll see how those things compare if and when they become public by the time the next day tuned episode drops next Thursday. I imagine we'll know the answer some of these questions, so maybe I shouldn't be making predictions now. But it sounds like from bars public testimony. It sounds it. We'll have more reductions than perhaps necessary because among other things people have been speculating about whether Bill bar would choose to seek an order from a court. To allow the release of certain grand jury material that is something that's provided for in the rules. Although there is some debate about whether or not it applies to a congressional proceeding or applies to an impeachment proceeding or applies preliminarily to an impeachment proceedings. So putting that all that debate aside, they'll bar seem to settle the question of whether he was going to seek an order, basically, putting it on the chairman of the judiciary committee who he claims has equal, right and responsibility and opportunity to make that petition to the court. So I imagine that what is produced publicly will be heavily redacted. There'll be fights about it. It sounds like Bill bar is providing to the public exactly what he intends to provide the congress, and you can have a big debate on whether or not congress deserves to have a less redacted version than the public, especially folks who were the chairs and ranking members of the judiciary committee in the until committee who I think are entitled to see a version of the report that is not redacted for classified information ongoing investigations..

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan says Mueller report shows no collusion

"President Trump down in Florida yesterday about to head to the golf course. Couple thumbs up mostly quiet though this weekend. But we're joined now by one of his top defenders in the house, the top Republican on the house oversight committee. Jim Jordan, congressman. Thank you for joining us your best morning, you're you're championships. Right there. He says the fact that there are no new indictments is not necessarily vindication for the president. You agree. Well, we got to read the report, but what I do know is to date not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination collusion conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the election, and that was the charge George when this thing started almost two years ago. The Democrats were all saying that the president of the United States work with a hostile foreign country to steal the election. And again, there's not been one bit of evidence to suggest that any of that happened. Well, there's been a fair amount of evidence that fourteen fourteen associates of Trump had over one hundred contacts with the Russians even though you're quite right. There was no charge of conspiracy. Does any of the information that's been revealed? About those contexts are about the fact that so many in the Trump world lied about those contexts concern, you well, I mean, look the central charge of of the special counsel was to see if there was conspiracy coordination or collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election as I've said that was the focus of the of the entire special counsel investigation. We've not seen any of that. And again, remember, this is Bob Muller. This was the guy the Democrats and the Repub everyone in town said this is the guy we need for the job. He is the best person we can pick. He is. He is right next to Jesus he can almost walk on water. This is the guy and he will have the definitive statement on that fundamental question. We'll see the report, but all indications are that there's not gonna be any finding of any collusion whatsoever. How about the other concern that one of the other concerns the chairmanship raise right there? The fact that President Trump might be compromised because he was pursuing that Trump Tower in Moscow during the campaign, not telling the truth about it may still be pursuing it today. Come on. I mean, look, here's what's happened. They they don't think this Muller reports going to be the bombshell, they all anticipated. It was going to be. So now, they're launching all kinds of other charges all kinds of other investigation. They bring in Michael Cohen a few weeks ago. This was their first big hearing their first star witness there. First witness of the one hundred sixteenth congress a guy who's going to prison in six weeks for lying to congress. They bring him in. And what does he do he lies again, we think at least seven times under oath in front of the congress again? So that didn't that didn't work for him. Now, what's chairman, neither do Eighty-one different letters to sixty some different individuals starting a whole new fishing expedition, this is how they operate. So if it's not the bombshell, they wanted they bring in Cullen that doesn't work that hearing is a flop then they go with chairman Nadler Eighty-one different letters sent out there. This is how the Democrats are going to operate. We just got to be used to it and understand that that's where they're gonna go. Do you stand by your vote that the country should see congress? The entire Muller report the turning Jenner was clear in his letter. A short letter Friday. There was a lot of important things. He said in there. He said he's going to consult with rod Rosenstein, he's going to consult with the special counsel, Bob Muller, and he's going to release as much as he possibly can consistent with the law. I think the Democrats should be that should be what we all want an attorney general who operates according to the law. So I'm I'm for airing on the side of transparency the whole thing released. You didn't have those qualifications in the vote. Yes, we did consistent with the law. That's what we want. And and I think the Democrats would want the same thing. But I'll tell you this, George if he's got a release all the information that I want all of it released. I want those three, oh, I want the conversations between Bruce or and Christopher Steele the guy who wrote the dossier. Glenn simpson. The guy that Clinton campaign hired to put the dossier together. I want all those conversations that Bruce or had with Glenn Simpson. Christopher Steele, those recorded those notes from the FBI I want all that. Application to be made public when they use. They use that dossier took it to a secret court didn't tell the court the Clinton campaign paid for that document didn't tell the court a foreigner. Who was who was desperate to stop Trump from being elected, president wrote, the document I wanted that information released to the breeze thing. Let's let's release it all let's be clear on that. Then. So you agree with the Democrats all the underlying documents should be released top to bottom. The Muller report should be released. We've just gone through the special counsel regulations. There's nothing in the law that precludes the attorney general from release that I'm saying that the attorney general said follow the statute. And that's what he's indicated. He's going to do in consultation with rod Rosenstein and Bob Muller. I think the Democrats should be happy with that. They said Bob Mueller was the guy that they wanted to do this investigation. Billboards Bill bars going to consult with him and decide what he can release. But if they do release everything then by golly release, it all show is application show us two three. Oh to show us the information. They gave the gang of eight the gang of eight with Adam. Mm ship was a part of that the gang of eight when they talk to them way back with about this dossier about what took place at the a court and about the start of this counterintelligence investigation show us all that information to the American people deserve we've asked for that information to be made public a long time ago because that goes to what these top people this cabal top of the FBI what they did when they launched this thing. Clear back in the summer and fall of twenty sixteen before the election, the president could order all this released on his own all of the declassified on his own. We urge him to do that. I've urged him to do to release this stuff. I just described. I sure have the stuff that Jim call me Andy McCabe. Jim Baker Lisa page. Peter Struck all this stuff that they had started with the dossier and all this stuff that they'd started initially with this investigation prior to the election. We urge him to order the release of the mullahs report is well again, that's the attorney general's call. And he's gonna do that consistent with the law saying is if the Democrats if the Democrats are gonna call for all that to be released, then they should call for everything to be asking you a different question. Now, the president has this authority. Are you asking the president to order the release of the Miller report, that's the that's the president's call? He said he wanted to be made public. He said that the other day when he was walking. I think out in front of the press. I think last Wednesday he said that. So that's that's the White House has called you mentioned the here. Michael Cohen a couple of weeks back as we know from the southern district of New York. They concluded that President Trump was individual one who directed. Michael Cohen to make those hush money payments to influence the election, essentially, directed a felony. Does that concern you, look, I I like I said Michael Cohen came in front of our committee, and he lied, we think at least seven times, that's why congressman meadows an ice in a criminal referral letter to the Justice department. We know he lied about his when he said he didn't want a job in the White House. We know that was a lie. Every every media outlet in the country had reported that is the conclusion of the southern district. Prosecutors they're the ones who said that individual one President Trump directed Michael Cohen to do this. Well, I mean, there's they have their investigation that they're doing in the southern district of New York. What I choose to focus on is the fundamental the charge of the of the special counsel was to look at collusion. We have not seen any of that. What I also know is Michael Cohen cannot be trusted any prove that when he was when he came back in front of the committee and several times lied under oath. I think the real question years will chairman Cummings. Join us in demanding that Michael Cohen be charged for perjury by the Justice department. I think he should do that. He was very clear at the start of the hearing. He said, Mr. Cohen, if you don't tell the truth, I'm going to hold you accountable, and we've seen nothing from chairman Cummings to do any of that any kind of holding him accountable at all so just to be clear the president's involvement of those payments doesn't concern you the president has had an amazing two years. He was in. He was in Ohio last Wednesday. And what I saw was people lining the street is he wrote. From the airport to the tank plant where we build the best tanks in the world. I saw people cheering him because they understand that this presence committed to fighting for the American people and getting accomplish the things he told the American people he was gonna do it was an amazing reception. He received from all kinds of folks here in the fourth district of Ohio just last

The Mueller Report: Ball now in Attorney General's court

"In Washington all eyes today on the Justice department once again as attorney general bar and deputy attorney general Rosenstein continue to review the special counsel Robert Muller's report on Russian interference in collusion with the Trump administration in the twentieth. Sixteen presidential election, Democrats and Republicans ally calling for the AG to make the report public to the fullest extent possible. We get the latest now from CBS is Wendy Gillette sometime today will likely learn more about what's in special counsel, Robert Muller's report. The attorney general is expected to release a summary. Democrats want the full report, the chairman of the House Judiciary committee, Representative Jerrold Nadler. I hope the department of Justice will not leave things hanging by seeking to keep things secret. He spoke on NBC, California Democratic Representative Adam Schiff says he respects the reports findings the issue of indictment of prosecution of that is Bob Mola's decision. And I have great confidence in him. He was interviewed on CBS face the nation. Republican Representative Jim Jordan on ABC. He said he's going to consult with rod Rosenstein, he's going to consult with the special counsel, Bob Muller, and he's going to release as much as he possibly can consistent with the law. I think the Democrats should be that should be what we all want an attorney general who operates according to the law. CBS news update. I'm Wendy July, Massachusetts, congressman Stephen Lynch saying he'd like to hear firsthand from the special counsel about his conclusions. And the contents of his report I would be shocked if we did not have Bob Muller, sit down the conditions of that whether whether it's public or whether it's private. And which committee she might sit before I think that's all open to debate. I know there are four or five committees in congress that would like to have shit for an interview. And then I think in fairness if there are still some underlying questions, I think probably a public hearing within at attendance as as the primary witness would be

"So I think that might be Cohen will only be ineffective witness to the extent he's independently corroborated either by other testimony, meaning verbal testimony or by documents or both because he's got an awful history. Now that doesn't mean that everything he says is ally. But what it does mean is that you have to corroborate him. And I think any any prosecutor at certainly someone as careful as skilled and as objective. As Bob Muller would never use someone as Michael like Michael Cohen unless he could crop rate them. And I think in general the same thing about the folks at the southern district, and she this this is the problem here. Remember, what all the spin was on bubbler going back only two weeks ago? We don't have to go that far back Democrats were saying that in the Manafort situation and the Coen situation in the Roger stone's situation that all of Bob molars allegations have multiple corroborating witnesses. All of Bob Mueller's charges or not based on one person. But on three four or five people that Cohen himself by himself as unreliable Cohen by himself could easily be dismissed as liar saying with Roger stone, Roger stolen could be dismissed buzz Aligarh Jerome Corsi, whoever. But there are multiple people who can paint the picture multiple people filling in the billings, multiple people back in each other up through separate independent investigations. So to have built that entire case into trotted out. Michael Cohen last week for Democrats to now be saying, hey, we gotta do this ourselves. Pretty big indicator. They're not going to get what they thought from the the Bob Mueller investigation that all of their hype about the Mueller investigation really doesn't live up to it. Now. One more clip Sarah Fagin is she's a Republican right of center strategist, not a Trump fan on with George Stephanopoulos over the weekend. Only the rest of the extent to Matt's point. If there is some real they're they're in and right now, we don't have evidence of collusion. Most Americans manafort's evidence of collusion. Will you have manafort's crimes, but that doesn't necessarily extend to the president. And we'll see what the mullahs report says, but one would think after a year, plus eighteen months, we would see something if it was directly connected to the president

Roger Stone in court as Mueller probe nears conclusion

"Tonight with breaking news in an open case in the Mueller probe Trump adviser, Roger stone. Just took the stand for the first time. He was just grilled by Muller prosecutor for the first time and he was rebuked silenced by federal judge. We are reporting on a truly wild day in federal court where judge Amy Berman Jackson took Trump aide Roger stone to task. There's really no other way to put it pressing him in public court proceedings on whether he was today lying to the court. And then she shut him down supersizing partial gag order into a full gag order against Donald Trump's longest-serving advisor. What does that mean? It means tonight. I can report for you. Roger stone can't say anything else in public about his case. The judge also suggesting this is the final warning and clear suggestion the next time that stone would be punished it will be with immediate jail. Todd now, Roger stone is a defendant in this Mueller probe. So these developments happening late today are obviously progress for Bob Muller, and they come in an extraordinary afternoon that revealed the legal limits on Roger stone's very well known effort to turn serious proceeding. Into a baroque theatre of the absurd. This normally voluble dirty trickster turned mournful and morose says he pled for mercy from the court while taking the stand again as I mentioned for the first time today and Winstone did leave as you see here with his freedom hanging by a thread. It was noticeable. He did not say a word in the departure. You see on your screen from the courthouse? Mark today as the official end to Roger stone's attempts to publicly attack, the Miller probe and the judge or the FBI as he did in releasing this video and going on and on about his arrest. There has been weeks of those attempts to use that footage. Well, we are now a long ways from Roger stone's antics that you may have seen on television when he was first indicted from the Nixon victory salute to holding impromptu press conferences at the courthouse. Now, let me tell you all of this obviously right now, which is big news. No matter how you slice. It is happening has Washington and the legal. And political worlds around the country buzz over whether this long-awaited Bob Muller report is coming soon. But these issues that all came to light today are a reminder that even if large parts of that probe are heading towards some sort of resolution this Roger stone case which touches on WikiLeaks and alleged potential attempts to collude it's open it is alive, and it is putting heat on the Trump world, which makes understanding today's developments, very important. So let me take you through some of them in detail. Roger stone came in today and began by telling the court, quote, I'm hurtful e sorry for my own stupidity.

"What are you looking for in the next few days that will signal something meaningful to you about what this change in administration of the DOJ actually means one is some indication of whether Whitaker how he means to approach the question of recusals. I don't know whether he's obliged to recuse or not based on the facts that are public. There seems to me to be a a real question there. I would want to verify number one that he followed that he sought the advice of the career Justice department ethics people and number two that having received that advice. He followed it. And that strikes me as. The first big sign as to his intentions is he following the regular order. I don't know what the outcome of that process. Would look like, but I do think to the extent that he doesn't do either of those two things that's a real bad sign. Number two. We have not heard from Bob Muller. Bob Muller has used his silence as a very powerful strategic weapon, and one of the things that he has communicated with that silence. Is that he has a decent working relationship with rod Rosenstein, and that the the acting attorney general for the past year and a half in this matter has not been impeding his investigation, and in fact, Rosenstein has gone up to the hill and defended the investigation and talked about how he supervises it. And Bob Muller has not said a word literally not one word about any problem that he has had with rod Rosenstein, and that has a tacit endorsement, I'm in fact, there's more to it than that. Because when Bob Muller issues and indictment the person who announces it is rod Rosenstein, they clearly have a good working understanding and the way Muller communicates that understanding exists is by saying nothing and letting Rosenstein speak on behalf of the investigation when it's appropriate. There is no rule that you have to behave that way as Bob Muller. Bob Muller could issue a press release tomorrow saying my investigation is being impeded? He could hold a press conference. There's no rule that says he can't do that. He could resign and issue a letter that says I cannot proceed under the circumstances. Here are the things that have been done to impede my investigation. He could transmit concerns to congress. Bob Muller has voice, and he has made a decision not to use it. So one really important thing to look out for is does Bob Muller. Tell you. There's a problem if there is a problem he will find a way to address it ethically by the book within the rules. He's not going to be leaking grand jury information. He doesn't play that. But if there's a problem, he's going to let us know. And so. So really interesting data point is just does he stay quiet number three third thing to look for. What is the messaging from both democratic incoming committee chairman in the house? And also from the key swing Republican senators both in the current congress, and in the subsequent congress where there would have to be more of them. And there are actually fewer of them about what they expect from a new attorney general what they expect Trump to do. In nominating somebody and what what sort of commitments they expect that person to make before the committee. So I think those are sort of three very public bodies of things that you can kind of look for as harbingers of where this is going, and then there's one more which is everybody kind of believes that, you know, Muller went into hibernation in these six weeks, two months before the election, and that there's sort of some pent-up activity. That's getting ready to happen. If you see a flurry of activity from the investigation over the next few weeks. And that that precedes, you know, that's a pretty good sign that the investigation is cooking along as as it was because it was expected. Well, you know, if you see a bunch of indictments come out of the investigation, that's kind of signed that the investigation hasn't been shut down, right, right? Benjamin witness. Thank you so much for talking me throw this today. It's a pleasure. You can hear Ben witness and his merry band of DOJ wonks examined the story completely on the law. Fair podcast.

"I don't know everyone who works that law from center. And have you had any discussion with anyone ever about Bob Muller and or his investigation? Posit now what's going to be interesting in his response here is again. The he is going to for the third or fourth time poll another one of these like people Kasowitz it's going to be slightly more more. Sophisticated, but not much more sophisticated. Right? Like it's almost the equivalent of him saying like, well, I mean, I've talked to people about different Bob's in my life. Good. So you said Bob molar or so, ever had a discussion about Bob Muller are used to work in the administration, Bob Mueller investigation. Have you had a conversation with anyone about his investigation? I'm sure I've talked to fellow judges anyone aside from fella judges about Bob Muller about his investigation, sir, Alaska again, but I ask the question just a minute ago. I'm surprised you forgot. Have you had this conversation with anyone about the investigation that Bob Mahler's conducting regarding Russia interference with our election or any other matter? The fact that it's ongoing. It's a topic in the news every day. I talked to. It's talked fellow judges about it. It's in our, it's in the courthouse in district of Columbia. So I guess. I'll answer to that is yes. So the answer's yes. Okay. And did you talk with anyone at Kasowitz Benson and tours? You asked me that I need to know who works there. I think you can answer the question without me giving you a list of all employees of that law firm. Actually I can't not is I don't know who works there. So that's the only way you would know who you spoke with. I wanna understand your your response to my question because it's a very direct one. Did you speak with anyone at that law firm about the Muller investigation? It's very direct question. I'd be. I'd be surprised, but I don't know anyone. I don't know. I don't know. Everyone works that woman, so I just wanna be careful because your question was and or so I want to be very literal. That's that's fine. I'll ask the more direct question if that's helpful to did you speak with anyone at that law from about Bob Mueller investigation. I'm not remembering anything like that, but I wanna know a roster of people and I wanna know more. So you're not denying that you spoke with? I don't remember anything like that move on. Clearly you're not going to answer the question..

"Stein to me would be the same as firing bob muller rosenstein overseas the scope of the investigation he signs off on any major actions that are taken in the investigation as i think we all saw last week when michael collins office and hotel rooms are rated that had to go from bob muller to rod rosenstein so firing rosenstein would have in the short term the effect of disrupting bob muller's investigation and i i think at least grinding to a halt until a new person i was able to get up to speed but in the long term whoever over whoever was the boss of muller and whoever over oversees the investigation they would certainly feel that if they took a step in any direction that donald trump did not like that could mean it was her last step and they could be fired so it'd have quite a chilling effect so to me they're firing either one of them should have the same consequence which is a direct referral to the house judiciary committee a lawyer representative how high the bar had to be for this raid i mean for the president to tweet things like they broke into my lawyer's office as if this is unfair and i'd like to look at the evidence before the investigators look at it this is just screams i'm above the law right it also screams that he doesn't know the law he thinks he's above it maybe because he doesn't know it certainly because he doesn't have respect for it but when i look at you know what the fbi did last week i believe they probably had evidence that there was imminent likelihood of destruction of evidence that for them to go in you know without notice without sending over a grand jury subpoena to michael cohen and his lawyers asking for production of documents there was likely fear that evidence was going to be destroyed which shows just how serious this isn't to me also for the purpose of the russian investigation it demonstrates that michael cohen is likely a shadowy operator and so if he's willing to go to great lengths to to conceal you know these contracts with different women for the president what links to go to to you know conceal the trump tower in moscow can we really trust him when he says he wasn't in prague what did he know about the.
