"If you know the name Bill browder, you probably know that he's considered Putin's number one enemy Putin's public enemy number one. Vladimir Putin's number one enemy. Radar has been called Putin enemy number one. So I mean, by some people's measurements, Putin's number one, foreign enemy. Browder was a hedge fund CEO. So how does someone like that end up in Vladimir Putin's cross years? Yeah, I mean, I've done something which is unforgivable to him, which is that I created a law called the magnitsky act. The magnitsky act is one of the most important pieces of international legislation you've probably never heard of. And it's part of the reason browder received the UChicago alumni professional achievement award last year. The law revolutionized the way we go after and punish international bad actors. President Trump continues to defend his oldest son for meeting with a Russian lawyer last year. He has said that in the meeting, the Russian lawyer Natalia, vellus Gaia, wanted to talk about the magnitsky act. That is a 2012 American law that punishes Russians who are seen to be human rights abusers. Browder detailed his experiences in his bestselling book, red notice. It's a story that sounds like a Hollywood movie except it's all true. So what's behind the magnitsky act and what role did this famous University of Chicago alum play in getting it passed in America and advocating for it abroad? That's all I do. I've given up my life as a businessman. I'm a helpful time political activist, human rights activist, working on getting my past and countries around the world. From the University of Chicago, this is big brains, a podcast about pioneering research and pivotal breakthroughs that are reshaping our world. Today, Bill browder, and how his fight for justice changed international politics. I'm your host, Paul Rand. Bill browder's story starts right here at the University of Chicago. Yes, intense, deep roots with the University of Chicago, maybe too deep or felt too deep at one point, my life. His father was chair of the mathematics department and brought her himself attended the university's undergraduate college. I think it was expected of me to become an academic like everybody else in my family and in addition to my father, my uncle Bill was a mathematician at Princeton and my uncle Andy was a mathematician at Brown all heads of their math departments. And so it was expected that I become a scientist of some sort. And so I was really the black sheep in the family. Maybe it was might have been acceptable to be a lowly engineer. But to be a businessman, oh my God, that was like the worst thing in the world. And so it took me a long time to regain the confidence and respect to my father after my decision to go into business. Well, I think I remember sharing in one of your ted-talks. In your early forms of rebellion, one was growing in Afro. What was another one that you talked about? I follow the Grateful Dead around. Yeah, yeah. But none of that stuff really upset him, but being a businessman really did. That was just like the worst thing you could do. And that wasn't just about not following in his father's mathematical footsteps. It was also about communism. Browder's grandfather was a leader in the U.S. Communist Party in the 30s and 40s in his even said to have worked for Soviet intelligence, recruiting spies. And I came up with this idea, which was that if my grandfather was the biggest communist in America, and the Berlin Wall has just come down, I'm going to try to become the biggest capitalist in Eastern Europe. Capitalism was directly antithetical to everything his family stood for. It was the ultimate way to rebel. So in 1996, browder started investment company in Russia called hermitage capital management, and eventually we grew to become the largest investment fund in Russia. Browder was lauded as a financial genius by Time Magazine, and in 1997 he was one of the best performing hedge fund managers in the world. Then, just one year later, Russia defaulted on its bonds. It devalued its currency and hermitage capital took a nosedive. I lost 90% of my client's money. And then after that, with the last ten cents of the dollar that I had left, the oligarchs were going to swoop in and try to steal the rest. So what did you do? Well, I said to myself, the police don't police, the regulators don't regulate, but the one thing that I can do is research. These oligarchs, powerful Russian businessmen, routinely skim money off the top of big companies. So browder decided to expose it. He and his team started with one of the biggest companies in Russia. The oil giant Gazprom. And so one of the things which we did was we did a stealing analysis of Gazprom. And people often think of Russia as being a very un transparent opaque place, and it is, in certain respects, but Russia is also a country with incredible bureaucracy. And all the bureaucrats collect information on everything. And so we took that information and we analyzed it, and we figured out what was being stolen out of Gazprom. And how they went about doing the stealing. They found that the oligarchs have stolen 9% of Gazprom's assets, billions of dollars. Browder fed that information to American journalists who jumped on the story and sparked an international scandal. And in the end, it created such a public scandal that Putin stepped in and fired the CEO who was doing all the stealing and replaced him with a new guy his job it was not to steal assets. He could steal other things, just not assets. And then the day after that guy was the new guy came on, the share price went up a 138%. Now, at this point, you would thought Putin would be okay with this. Is this right? Well, at this point, I didn't know what Putin was, but he appeared to like what I was doing. Why did he like it? There's an expression, your enemy's enemy is your friend. And the oligarchs who were stealing from me, stealing money from me. They were stealing power from him, understood. He had come to become president of Russia, but he was really only president of the presidential administration of Russia because the oligarchs had privatized the power of the presidency by bribing police bribing army generals. Everybody was doing something for somebody else. Platoons in the army were building roads for the oligarchs. And police officers were finding stashes of cocaine in the trunks of competitors to oligarchs and arresting them. And everyone was doing something for the wrong reason. And so it was going well for a while. And every time I would publicize a scandal involving one of his enemies, he would come down like a ton of bricks on his enemies, and it all worked well. The trouble was that Vladimir Putin wasn't doing this because he wanted to clean up Russia. He was doing this because he wanted to destroy the oligarchs. After Gazprom, broader and his team and hermitage did this again and again. They investigated the oligarchs that ran Russia's national electricity company, savings bank and several other oil companies and they exposed the theft. And that worked for a while. Until it didn't. Putin wanted to consolidate power and in October 2003, he got his moment. He rested the richest man in Russia, a man named Michael, and threw him in jail. And in Russia, when you go on trial, you sit in a cage. And they allowed the television cameras to film, Mikhail horikoshi, the richest man in Russia, sitting in a cage. Now imagine you're the 17th richest person in Russia, and you see a guy far better, far richer, far more powerful than you, sitting in a cage. What's your natural reaction? You don't want to sit in that cage yourself. And so in June of 2004, after ski was found guilty and sentenced to ten years in prison, these other oligarchs went to Putin, one by one, and said Vladimir, what do we have to do? So we don't sit in a cage. And Putin said, this real simple. 50%. And this is not 50% for the Russian government or 50% for the presidential administration of Russia. This is 50% for Vladimir Putin. At that moment in time, he became the richest man in the world. Putin was now the central oligarch browder was going after. He was naming and shaming Putin's own financial interests. It didn't go over very well..

"That's obviously an awesome start but if nothing in there was problematic to you then you probably feel that way the optics optics are relevant. Like if you're looking at two people tied up in that situation forget color. Whatever like i'm like this is a little much but that's my perception right. So i'm not putting my thoughts and there but if you don't see it that within now let's say for example. They were mixed. Let's say one was one was You know lebron's going to go. One black girl will be have how. How would we deal with this with this. Not be an issue. Then because now i think it would be an issue was white brown noted there so that's why i use brown. I said somebody is a priority of fire. one is white one is black. Then what happens. I think their quality. No no no. Because that's my point because the african still minority in colombia right. That's my point. That seems statistically that would happen to have the black girls doing that right. A problem didn't happen. No this was cast going. This was division right. It's who's here on set today. Give me these women. No no no you cast it that way. I am with this one point. Which is why has cast as would've thought process. I would say absolutely and it's quality it's just about more. Okay just happened to have a black girl in their same thing was to white girls because you look at for example if this was done in kenya by kenyan artists jamaica right where probability wise. These are the people who are going to be. You might say it's in poor taste because his racist undertones right without good indian black guy kenyon j belvin process. I'm saying if the artists is the artist if the artists the same race as the women with leases could be perpetuating said stereotypes. Right but yeah. It's it's absolutely different now. And i'm not just reading. I'm just. I'm thinking about right now. Because i'm like this is just. It's the idea that you can even do that. That bed that. I i don't understand the art personally.

Professor Paul Kengor Explains the Modern American Marxist

"So in other words, in the thirties and forties, if you were in the Hollywood 10 if you were Algeria, this if you were Earl Browder later on Gus Hall, the Rosenbergs in the 19 fifties, you swore loyalty oath to Stalin's Soviet Union. And what we have today is they're not doing that. I mean, today's American Marxists, which is why I think with this this brilliant title of your book, I think you may have failed us even more than then you realized, uh, this is a unique American. Brand of Marxism. It's American Born. It's American fashioned. You know, the strain or strains of it is something that history here to four has people have never seen before. So this is really unique. And you say in your book, you say there's been an Americanized adaptation of Marxism, and I think this place is put it exactly right, which takes marks Marx's core precepts and contextualized them. To our American system, And here's really the dangerous part. And this is what a lot of people don't get. So so they contextualized them to the American system like you say, mark in order to effectively overthrow the system. And and that actually is something that's not new. So these people in the thirties and forties they would hide behind the Fifth Amendment. They would They formed the front groups with names like the Committee on the First Amendment. And you would just pull your hair out. Congress would write like First Amendment. Fifth of men that the first thing you got here do is throw out the U. S Constitution. What are you talking about? Exactly? And a lot of these guys and gals today. Yeah, You know, it's the same thing so they're taking the Marxist framework. And they're using it in a way that seems in at least in their rendering of it, right. You know, American about rights and civil liberties and so forth, But it's in order to undermine the existing system. And, yes, that's American Marxism today.

"And then you've got a bunch of people on capitol hill. They're not even ready to risk their job for their country. And i find that really upsetting demoralizing. What accounts for this change. I mean why would it not hurt their careers anymore to sacrifice. Us national security is seems like that should be a very big deal. If you're an elected official who has sworn a constitutional oath to protect the united states. The story of liz. Cheney kind of tells you everything she has lost her position in the republican party because she is worth swearing her oath to the constitution. It says it all. I mean it just feels like as andrea was saying. We've been hijacked from within. I mean we know that this happened with trump but in the beginning at least if felt like imposition from above it was one that republicans at least initially were resisting the partnership mccain and lindsey graham in the beginning opening the investigation into the coordination of trump and russia as the years went by That became hardened then became normalized. And you know there are a number of people to blame your you know. One of course is the republican party itself in their consistent involvement in these dirty politics in these treasonous politics but there's also been a lack of pushback from the democrats to just call this out in the most straightforward terms to treat it like a crisis. Like i often heard and i live in missouri. So-called red state a feeling of disbelief from people in my state that russia actually had this much influence over our politics. They would say to me if that were true. People would be arrested. Or there'd be impeachment hearings early or they kick those people out of office or the democrats would be giving speeches or obama would say something or so on and so forth like what do you think of that of the You know of the positions people have taken the reaction to this kind of sort of internal invasion of our body politic or the lack of reaction. Well i grew up in america and Left thirty years ago to move to the uk. And i've been living in the uk for thirty years. It doesn't look like the same country that i lived in thirty years ago as the feels like how about in the uk because they experienced a similar problem with brexit the same year with a lot of the same players behind it like have you noticed that kind of change on the ground there. Brexit is over. And it's it's much less of a culture war here than it is in america. It was really very ugly during brexit in people. Don't even like talk to each other. If if you're on one side or the other but it doesn't serve a delphi. You one way or another with being pro brexit. I mean there. There're pro brexit labor. There was pro brexit conservatives and there's anti brexit labor and anti brexit conservatives and so it was all it they don't have the same type of the same type of it wasn't mask whereas versus those. You don't wear masks. Nobody was laying out on party lines on on cultural lines on whatever lines and so and you don't have to tiptoe around the issue doesn't you know no one's gonna get mad at you if you were against it or for it and you can still have the same people over for dinner now and it's it's okay whereas in america. It doesn't feel like that. Do you think that their pastas money. Abramovich roman abramovich the owner of chelsea in a russian oligarch who is reportedly like a like a son. Who do you think that their money has influenced the uk's position on holding kremlin aggression accountable. Certainly with all the assassination that have happened on british soil by the russians. Like jimmy thoughts on that. So there is a major major problem here of dirty russian money corrupting the political process directly here so much so that they did a russia investigation here where they've gathered evidence and it's remarkable. I mean i. I participated in contributed to the investigation and we found members of the house of lords which is like the equivalent of the. Us senate is the upper chamber of parliament. Were being paid. Money openly out in the open by russians to lobby against magnitsky sanctions. It's and nobody's going to jail. Nobody has been even lost their position. It just happened and In a certain way. Russia has because of oligarchs spreading their money around here and politicians here much cheaper to buy. I'm sure that the more expensive in america the russians have have really firmly gotten in here and and I mean check this out. Alexander lebed who is a A former kgb officer his son a billionaire and former kgb officers is son came to the uk became a british citizen and was elevated to the house of lords is now lord lebedev of siberia. Wow so it seems like london. Grad has a much larger problem in terms of kremlin dark money than the. Us has currently dirk money sets right. Sorry you're right. Yes so you use that word dark money. Yes absolutely nic. I believe now has his name on the tate. His name and all sorts of stuff. He's his. There's the balat next school of government at oxford sums. It up perfectly. doesn't it. Well he used to have it on the kleptocracy initiative and anti kleptocracy group until they had to remove it when they realized that he kleptocrat was funding their activity. But anyway you to go. But how much influence do these russian oligarchs have of the. There's a so essentially putin's court of olive garden so these guys may live abroad but putin keeps close track them. He's he's close with them. How much influence do they really have. Like how concerned should we be. Well i think that the oligarchy Key fundamental connection between putin and his money. They're the ones who hold his money for him. And so therefore they're the key to everything and the and at the same time they're also that people who do a lot of his reform policy in terms of corrupting systems and so on in less the us and the european union the uk. Seriously up there. A game in terms of containing hooton a lot. More really bad stuff is going to happen. It may make the things that we've already witnessed appear to be small potatoes and in terms of the types of crises and and problems. We have in the future and so we need to employ a policy of hardcore containment like we did during the cold war if.

"Says like you know we're gonna get along you know i it wouldn't it be great if we got along and they all have different words for it in different styles about it but it's all the same thing and now you have biden who's wants to have a a summit with this guy and i've objected just as strongly when trump was having his guy he doesn't putin doesn't deserve this type of recognition. Yeah seems incredibly reckless. Just given all of the things that you listed in terms of attacks that russia has carried out on the us. Over the last few years. And i would add to that. All of the cyber attacks including the ones that took place during the obama administration various governmental institutions as well as the one launched in two thousand twenty which is the worst cyber attack on the united states in its history. I'm just trying to figure out you know because while you're right that there's this continuum of people being unable to see russia clearly for the threat that it is. We did have an unusual situation to say the least with trump. as the president trump. As a a kremlin asset who was bolstered into the position by putin by oligarchs by kremlin operatives. Why has the biden administration not failed to learn from that. Because we're definitely not dealing in hypotheticals anymore. Here was pathetic. All i mean look. The russians were being afghan mercenaries to kill american troops. I mean it just goes on and on. I don't know why biden is making these decisions. All i can say is that it's the wrong decision. Either he's got the wrong instincts or the people advising him at the wrong instincts and he shouldn't be having some and when he does have this summit. It's really hard to have a summit and say you know we're gonna like tie you up in knots and sanction you and you for all these terrible things you you do. Because that's not what you do in a summit i wanna point out You mentioned the kremlin putting bounties on the heads of the. Us soldiers afghanistan which led to real casualties at reporting has all been confirmed. There was some annoys that came out recently that the nsa wasn't as common as a cia but the point is that the us government acknowledged that this was happening in a lead to real casualties and the new york times. Great reporting on it. You could take off the list. There's like fifty other things. The melissa you know there's so much bad. This guy is a menace to the world and there's no question it's objective. He's used nova shocked to poison his political opponent. Use novacek to poison people in salisbury. You know used polonium to kill Within yanko people have been killed in berlin and vienna and he's a a criminal of the first order running a state and for us to give him any kind of like recognition as a as a world.

Netflix Misses Q3 Subscriber Forecast, Stock Falls

"In the past twelve months shares of Netflix are up more than two hundred percent so. Forgive me for not wringing my hands over the fact that shares of Netflix are down about six percent. This morning third quarter profits came in lower than expected. That said. Weakest. Subscriber growth in four years. That's I don't know. It doesn't seem like something to worry a lot about, but it certainly is noteworthy. Actually, think it's something that's kind of to be expected. So there's something called the pull forward effect, which is there's rapid growth in the first half of the year. So then the dot com steals, the subscribers would have happened in the back half of the year. So they added two point, two, million new subscribers, which is less than the three point three, million predicted. By. In total for the year, they added over twenty six million customers, which is more than they did of all of last year. So through the first nine months of twenty, twenty they've. got a point, one million members and they're on pace to add thirty, four, million users in two, thousand twenty, which will be their strongest year of growth. Aber so even though this quarter is the lowest number. Since two thousand fifteen if you kind of zoom out look at the big picture, they're going to to almost two hundred million customers in total, which if you're going to compare it to Disney sixty point, five, million subscribers who has about thirty million. So it's still by and large the most popular. Streaming site. Did Not get a chance to listen to the conference call. Do you know the extent to which management game guidance on production schedule because that's certainly we certainly seen that in the traditional movie? Industry, of Television as well to a lesser degree, but we've seen a lot of movies just stopped production altogether. Did they give any guidance on their own pipeline? They did. So they finish fifty projects since the initial shutdown and they will release more programs next year in twenty twenty, one minute didn't twenty twenty. They are returning to production mainly in Europe and in Asia not as much. So in the US, they're currently filming season for of Stranger things they're filming red notice which I don't know if that's based on the book by Bill. Browder. But if it is, I'm excited to watch it. They're filming season two of the witcher. So they seem that they are both finishing filming finishing production and filming and re ramping filming outside of the US. One of the things I did know Yeah. The headline is a subscriber growth in four years their subscriber growth in the Asia Pacific region was really strong this last quarter. Yeah, it was the largest contributor to paid membership growth. So it was forty six percent of the global paid net ads. So I think that that's an interesting kind of problem or gift that they have is they now have such a global subscriber base. So you have to see shows that are in English, and then you have to see shows that are in different languages and you have to see show that widely appeal like I don't know if you watched Indian matchmaking but that was an interesting show that appealed to. I think you know I'm not watching a match making show I heard a plus reviews my sister really liked it. But I think that that's an interesting kind of experiment and you see that it was very popular in India but it was also super popular in the US trying to figure out how they can get shows and movies that have that wide appeal while also focusing on those knee shows as well that do really well like the umbrella academy or the Social Dilemma the documentary that came out.

His decisions his policies his personal directives ruined the actual lives of countless men. Women boys girls and families all over New York City in many of them will never recover. Here's the thing. Because social media did not exist on the scale that it exists today during most of his time as mayor of New York from two thousand and two until two thousand thirteen with his final year in office being the literal year before the Black Lives Matter Movement began. Bloomberg narrowly escaped the nationwide public accountability and scrutiny. But he no doubt would have received in any subsequent year after he left office and as a result. New Yorkers particularly black and Brown New Yorkers have something akin to a collective P. T. S. D. over the harmony cost and. I don't want what I'm about to tell you to be a twenty reasons not to vote for Bloomberg type of peace. Those things out there. I just need you to understand the size scope scale in vile nature of the twelve years where Bloomberg personally oversaw in turbo charged a citywide stop and Frisk policy. Let me break down Britain epic. Bring it bears. What Mike Bloomberg did in his twelve years in office as mayor of New York City was the closest thing the United States has got to Jim Crow Apartheid South Africa in our lifetime. Now Bloomberg will tell you that. Hey everything I did. Existed before him that would be like saying prisons existed before the explosion of mass incarceration from nineteen seventy five until today yeah. Prisons existed but on a scale that was on par with the rest of the developed. Worl see from eighteen. Seventy to nineteen seventy the United States consistently incarcerated fewer than two hundred fifty thousand people per year. Today we incarcerate over two point five million people on any given day and over ten million people per year it's exploded so yes prisons existed before nineteen seventy yes a policy of stop and Frisk existed before Bloomberg took office. But he exploded. That's what he did. When he became mayor he grew it and expanded exponentially. Just give me a minute to explain it to you. In the twelve years Bloomberg was in office he ordered the NYPD. I need you to understand these figures. He ordered the NYPD to stop and Frisk people almost exclusively black and brown people a staggering five million eighty one thousand six hundred eighty nine times. Are you listening to me? And those are just stops. That police officers actually documented. Some people believe the actual numbers could be twice as high completely innocent. People were strip searched. Punched kicked slammed beaten groped. Tasers choked in shot in these stops drugs were planted. People were framed in tens of thousands of people. Every single year or arrested sent to rikers for crimes. They did not commit then eventually released without ever even going to court. Some people spent days in jail where they lost their jobs. Single parents lost custody of their kids. Others they did and spend days in rikers but they spend weeks months and even years for crimes they didn't commit. And while they were there in rikers like a young man a teenage boy named Khalif browder. They were beaten and tortured by both guards and inmates alike forced into solitary confinement for years on end then simply released without even an explanation. When Khalif Browder was released he was broken and took his own life. Experts say tens of thousands of other innocent men women and children were either cokes by prosecutors and police enter taking plea deals so that they could simply be released for time served or just chose to take the deals simply so that they could escape the madness of the jail only to be released from rikers back into Bloomberg's New York where they were routinely stopped and frisked again and again and again some individuals were stopped and frisked by the NYPD. Over a hundred different times. Can you imagine now when I say over a hundred times? I'm not using that number one hundred as a euphemism for a lot. I mean they were literally in stopped literally searched and stopped by the NYPD over one hundred times as parents and activists and organizers and preachers in mental health experts in justice reform advocates in constitutional lawyers all begged and pleaded with Bloomberg to stop. He were a few people met with him personally demanding that he stop begging that he stopped. They marched and protested in New York dozens of times. They interrupted his events in some of the smartest most persistent legal groups in the nation sued the Bloomberg Administration over and over and over again to stop these unlawful practices in a federal judge that Dean Bloomberg's stop and Frisk policies that deemed that they were indeed a modern day apartheid for black and Brown New Yorkers. She found that countless constitutional violations existed as she ordered an immediate halt to what he had done for nearly twelve years and even then he fought back against it and refuse to immediately implement the charges and changes rather that she demanded now when Bloomberg left office and his stop and Frisk was no longer a policy. Crime actually plummeted year after year after year. His racist policies that he said he had in place to make New York. Safer didn't make New York safer at all. New York got safer after stop and Frisk ended. All he had done was caused real terror to millions and millions of people and after this man Left Office. Bloomberg bragged about the policy and defended it with all his might. That's why in Twenty fifteen. He asked the staff at the SNOOTY Aspen Institute to turn off the cameras when he spoke there in bragged about how police withrow black and brown boys against the walls. All in the name of making New York City safer. He knew what he was saying was ugly. Have you heard that audio? Those kids that he's talking about and their mothers and fathers and siblings were not just humiliated by such an awful practice it shattered many of them and Bloomberg literally defended all of this after the policy had stopped after it was ruled unconstitutional. He defended it deep into twenty nineteen right up until he decided to run for president. And here's the thing. I have dedicated my life to fighting back against Donald Trump and his policies. I have campaign to oust horrible politicians and have helped elect bold promising new ones all over the country. I've endangered my family in pursuit of tracking down and bringing White Supremacist Neo Nazis. To justice so yes. Donald Trump is our mortal enemy and I work directly with the people in communities that his evil has impacted the most he must be defeated and he can be. I will not support one oppressor to another one. I want to

"May apply now Thurston odd cagey. Oh, eight ten. Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. We are we're talking about. Well, so many things at all pertains to the events that took place this week. Most recently we've been talking about the BuzzFeed article in which the accusation was made that it was Donald Trump who suborned perjury from Michael Cohen before the congress of the United States that he told Cohen to lie about the Trump Tower project in Moscow now the Muller team has said that some of the information that's contained in that. Article is inaccurate. We don't know. What's true? We don't know. What's not true prior to the Muller team making that statement, the Democrats in the congress? We're starting to talk us. The I word which they have been loath to do. They've been talking about impeachment having hearings on impeachment. Now they've gotten silent. I don't think they should. I don't think they should base their impeachment hearings on the BuzzFeed article. I think they should base it on the facts on on testimony, and they need to start doing their jobs. I know that Jerry Nadler is going to do that. I have great faith in him. He's a I like him. I respect him very much eighty eighty eight tennis the telephone number eight eight eight ten I also wanna bring up this bellarusse an escort. But let's get some let's continue talking about this for a little bit. We'll talk about Bill Barr. We've still got about half the program left. So we'll get that in with the aid. She hearings, you know, his confirmation hearings for the attorney general Bill bar, and we'll talk about this Belarus and escort as well. Because this is a very disturbing story. Eight hundred eighty eight ten is the telephone number. We go to Toby and walnut creek Toby. Hi, welcome to K, G O. How are you? I'm well. Yeah. I I want to comment on. I saw that by eight Marty full. Yeah. You know, everybody's saying that it blew up in their face within three hours. Yeah. So. Why is that? Trump made mistakes. The biggest mistake he made was he wanted to leave NATO. He said that during the campaign. What was it triggered people inside the DOD insight date show inside England United Kingdom, triggered State Department people and they? Shannon thinking that only this guy. Thirty minutes today. Nato? Chain an enemy. Bye. Prosecution that Bill Browder. The partner of Edmund in. Capital? In Moscow in the nineties when they were asset stripping. There was a. China which the aspects of the snow union being. Mind by western trend. Came into power and put into. That is the reason why is the enemy of originally. Putin was highly revered, so. Original originally, Putin was with the KGB and in a very high position with the KGB. He was certainly not revered as a member of the KGB. And I don't believe he was ever trusted by any American interests until Donald Trump. No, he was still router. He was himself. Admired glad Amir Putin. You be agents, George H W Bush was see I eight director. So, you know, just put it all into perspective plea. Yeah. I think I think that Toby Toby all due respect. I think the perspective that I need right now. And Bill Browder. I mean, there's Bill Browder was an enormous. Kremlin critic Bill Browder is a person who did launch a global crusade against corruption and human rights abuses, by the Kremlin. Putin is somebody who has been guilty of human rights abuses from day one. Now, I grant you that the United States government has cozied up to a lot of human rights abusers. But what the United States tends not to cozy up to are those people who are trying to undermine our interests around the world and here, and when you have a Vladimir Putin who has been the mastermind behind the intrusion into the United States. Presidential election, and this has been confirmed and reconfirmed by all of our intelligence agencies. That is something that the United States cannot abide nine understand that we've interfered in elections in other countries that's wrong. And I am not about to stand by and say, it's okay. If other countries do it here, I don't want to be under the control of Ladimir Putin. Vladimir Putin has also ordered the deaths of many of his political opponents of people who've criticized him of people who have fled the fled Russia in order to seek a live someplace else after they have been critics of Ladimir putting look at the the gentlemen in his daughter who were both poisoned by Ladimir Putin. They're not the only ones he's not a nice guy. He's a he's a trained KGB operative and he's playing Donald Trump. Don't kid yourself, Putin's pulling the strings Donald Trump. I mean, we don't take allies into the Oval Office and start showing them highly class. Find information that's been provided to us on the q t by other intelligence entities around the world. He brought in an Intel. He brought a spy into the Oval Office of Russian spy and shared that information with the Russian spy, please be careful about this. It is good for the United States. Not to have a hostile relationship with a nation as powerful as Russia. It is also good for the United States. Not to have it strings pulled by Russia. So that we are doing what's best for them. And not what's best for the United States of America and are true allies. Eight hundred eighty eight ten is the telephone number eight oh eight oh, eight ten let's go to day from Filo, Dave. Hi, welcome to K, G L. Thank you bet. I wanted to let you know that this past week on the Senate floor in the absence of Mitch McConnell. There was a Senator who try to introduce a motion to a Bill to end the shutdown, and it's you know, privilege offered to all the senators to do that. Right. However, he also have you asked for an injection and right at the end of it Mitch McConnell reappeared on the floor and said he objected which ended the whole thing. So wait so his objection disallowed the vote from taking place, correct? Because I understood that there were there were a number of votes that were eleven Republicans. I think who voted in favor, but it didn't am I getting that. Right. But it wasn't quite sufficient to be a veto proof majority. That's that's the way. I understand. We know the details. But I I do know that. Hey, Senator, and I don't know which one tried to introduce that motion to you a Bill to end the shutdown. Yeah. You know, what also, you know? There's there's quite an entanglement with Mitch McConnell his wife. Elaine chao. And China and Russia's I mean, there's an amazing article I saw from the daily 'cause this past week explaining the whole thing. And you know, it's way too long to try to you detail on the radio, but it's like looking at. Yeah. No kidding. No. I I agree with you our government stinks in so many ways. I mean, it's it's functioning I want it to function. I think the way that it's been put together is is utterly brilliant. But I do think that there's a lot of real weird stuff that goes on and that needs to be ferreted out. And that's always the way it's going to be whenever you have highly powerful people. Anywhere. There are going to be elements of it that are corrupt and sometimes it's minor corruption. And sometimes it's really big and it sits in the Oval Office. It needs to be ferreted out. Always we need to be diligent always and hold our government to account. You can't just assume that because our founders put into place, this terrific system that it's always going to operate the way it's supposed to you know, what operates that way under some presumption that the people that we're dealing with our honorable periodically dishonorable people get in there, and we've got to fix that. And right now, I think there are quite a number of them. I just looked at the story about this from the hill that you were talking about Dave. And and let me just it was it was Tim Kaine Tim Kaine former vice presidential running mate, he tried to get consent to take up a house passed Bill that would reopen all agencies except the department of homeland security, which is the center of the shutdown fight. Mitch McGaw MC Mitch McConnell did object. He did. Not explain his objection from the Senate floor. He has worn for weeks. He will not bring up a government funding Bill and lets us the product of an agreement between congressional democratic leadership and President Trump. He said the solution to this isn't a going in between the one person in the country, you can sign something into law, the president of the United States in our democratic colleagues. And yet that's what he said when the Democrats presented the Bill and yet today when Donald Trump says that he wants it this way where he's doing the pretend DACA thing Mitch McConnell has said he's going to bring that up in the Senate floor. You know, they're all it's so it's so blatant. It's so apparent. How there are different rules depending on who's the party. That's in power. There are different rules for Republicans. Then there are for Democrats in it stinks to high heaven. I really need to take a break. More of your calls coming up. I'm Pat Thurston. Eighty eighty eight ten is the telephone number.

"Relationship with Russia continues to cause concern. And right now, we're getting insight from the man who was the real reason behind the infamous Trump Tower meeting and has spent the last decade of his life trying to avoid getting killed by Vladimir Putin. Please welcome the head of global Magnitsky Justice campaign, my friend, Bill Browder high. You don't own your story. You were a fierce partner in fighting corruption with my father, you were the head of the largest foreign investor in Russia, and you were giving you a vocal supporter of Putin at the time. And then everything changed can you explain to the audience why you are bladder Putin's number one enemy. What happened was? I went out to Russia sort an investment fund. I discovered that everything was corrupt out there. I wanted to stop the corruption of the companies I invested in I expose it. And guess what I exposed Putin and all of his guys and they didn't take too kindly to that. They expelled me from the country. They raided my offices. They seized all of our documents. And then they arrested tortured and murdered. My lawyer Sergei madness game. Which is how we got the Sergei Magnitsky though that I got from my father. I, you know, I think he understanding is that the Russia and Putin was basically using the United States as a slush fund, correct? Well, basically what? So what Putin does is? He does terrible financial crimes like the one that that Magnitsky exposed. He he does. And he doesn't all over the place, and he's got all his guys doing it. And it's a whole corrupt system. They take all this money, and they don't want to keep it in Russia because as easy as they stole it, it could be stolen from them. And so they put it in US banks and in London banks and in Swiss banks, and one of the things that Putin is scared. Most of all is having that money taken away it you'd probably when you hate sends the checks, so he sends all this money. All these guys send the money tonight's as they put it in real estate here if they put it in real estate, they put it in Bank accounts. They put an hedge fund and somebody has to launder that money right because it's really not taxed so there's a the the worst thing is that there's a whole industry of people with nice, suits and good accents. And well, educated schools everything. That launder the money and take the money, and and and give them a, wink and say, don't worry Blad. Your money is going to be safe with us. It was your name that was brought up in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. It was also your name that was brought up in Helsinki at that press conference. Putin is obsessed with you. I mean, he brings up your name every chance he gets. And then President Trump even called the idea of giving you over to the Russians he called it an incredible offer. Isn't that Helsinki press conference? What's going through your mind when you heard the United States say that it was incredible offer to give you up to the Russians. Well, so I'm sitting there and Vladimir Putin has been going after me for ten years. I they they made death threats kidnapping threats. They tried to arrest me through INTERPOL. They've done all this stuff. And I'm sitting there, and I was in the United States at the time that that that that the Helsinki summit was going on. And I thought to myself this guy is about President Trump is either very stupid not having been been briefed about my story. Because my my story is is all over the place. Or there's something something wrong in his head. Because to hand me over to the Russians is about the worst thing scared that that could have happened. Well, you know, I think that he says a lot of really dumb stuff, but but but the system in America still works, and I didn't think that the department of Justice or the US courts would have handed me over to the Russians. But but the fact that he said that was was was pretty unnerving..

"This is the time to do it. I mean, I remember joy you were pretty upset when Al Franken stepped down. And I think the Democrats wanted to take the moral high ground, and he did it getting to get that if they get anywhere with it. Right. But Republicans now with this. I think could make such a significant statement by forcing him to resign, but will Republicans now step up to the plate with Donald Trump because he has been using I think the border wall as sort of this dog whistle for racism, but. Government is still shut down. And I think it's all about let's not let all these Brown people in right, unless they're working for farmers unless they're working in agriculture. So now will the Republican party step up to him and say, we don't want any there. There's forty two percent of this country. That's worth the wall. Are they all racist? That's a good question. I'm not that. I don't think. So I don't think so I believe in Donald Trump races. Doc. I'm trying to say. If you're if you're going to paint, a broad stroke about a wall and that being racist than I know. But there are people that support to wellbeing Bill is Donald Trump races. There are a lot of web about there are a lot of people's support that well when I think when you blanket, I think this is the problem with identity politics in the country, which is something we sort of touched on yesterday's when you broad stroke, everyone, all black people think one thing people think one thing or publicans think one thing that's how we got ourselves into this mess, and I'm one of the people that would like to help pull ourselves out of it flits focus on Steve king. I'm happy to talk about the wall and border. And we talk about Trump still will Trump, by the way, I think I have made myself quite clear how I feel about President Trump. How I feel about the America. That was always great before he came to it. I think I have made myself explicitly clear on this show and other places. So please don't paint me just because I'm for border security that is somehow racist in some way or another because I don't think that's fair. I'm against the wall letting up being accepted, I'm for strong border security. I would like to say kings language is important. He said, white nationalist white supremacists. Western civilization. How did that language become offensive? This is very clear. It's very clear racist language from congressman king. So when I think that is what I'm just saying when we broad stroke, everyone, I would like our show, and I've said this many times to be above that to be above broad stroking people into different. We all. It's. Put with forty two percent of Americans are racist. Aren't just said. I don't know. That's the question. Aqap G rating on his racist concentrating. Stop dom. Anything that's happening now because by talknet just make one small time. Point point is that I don't think that we concentrate on Steve king. There's always racist. I only that because it's the topic thing on eight o'clock. I'm not done. What you did just call forty two percent of the country. There was an implication that they could be racist. Which is something that obviously when you're talking about Republicans in general that is obviously something that's going make. I on the platform, not the person. I am John McCain of daughter, I am not someone who sits her and is okay with racism. Daughter. Murga? We'll be right back. Leader, Donald bids.

But one last thing I wanted to ask you about you spent a greater part of your time on activities in support of the Magnitsky act, which pretty much passed the Senate unanimously, I think there were two holdouts famous famous holdout was Bernie Sanders, and I was wondering if you've ever had occasion to speak with him about that vote. And do you know why he opposed it? I do not know, and I, you know, during the previous election win when some of my left-wing, friends were feeling the burn. I would I would run them. I say this is a guy who voted against the Magnitsky act. I I don't I don't know why he did that. But I hold it against him. I mean, it was a ninety eight to to to vote. Yeah. I've heard both sides of that story. And some folks say that he was he voted. No because it didn't go far enough gave the executive too much power. But I I haven't been able to confirm that with anybody that doesn't make any sense to me. All right before I let you go. Can you tell us about your book read notice? So my book read notice is a an account of of how I ended up in Russia. How I started my business in Russia. How for while? It was a an amazing and successful business. And then I encountered the most horrible corruption anyone could ever imagine. And the Russians were stealing everything. I tried to fight the stealing in that led to being expelled from the country. My company seized my lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky arrested, tortured and murdered. And then the last third of the book is my fight for Justice, which culminates in the passage of the Magnitsky act, which is the thing that that Putin hates more than anything. It's a it's a it's a book, which you'll you'll learn a lot about Russia, but you don't have to care about. Russia read it because it it's just a fascinating and terrifying story all the way through. Absolutely. It is terrifying. I encourage everybody to pick up that book read notice. I also encourage you to watch Bill Browder testimony to congress from twenty seventeen and listen to two of molar she wrote it's all about the Magnitsky act and Bill Browder testimony.

"The head of the global Magnitsky Justice campaign. Putin enemy number one Bill Browder. He's amazing. Yeah. Have you? Haven't yet. Go. Listen to episode two Muller. She wrote it's all about the Magnitsky act. It'll be a good primer to the conversation. We're about to have with the guy who helped write the Magnitsky act, please mind, the sound quality and episode to we have some corrections from last week in the ongoing saga of how to pronounce Herman German cons name. I'm now being told by the Russian friend that it's a hard G Gherman con. This is the father-in-law vendors wand Gherman con vendors, one vendors wants the first guy to go to jail and be deported in the molar probe. So they're Gherman con. I'm just gonna com con from now on the safest way to go the whole German Gherman Herman situation. I also said Montenegro was a Baltic state not a Balkan its Balkan. And I know that and I always confuse those two things, and I I always mix them up. Sorry about that good looking out. Also, I thought about conduct discharge was worse than a dishonorable discharge, but it's the other way around dishonorable discharges or for like, murder and rape and shit like that. Wow. And to the women who bristle when I call myself old because I'm forty four. I know it's not old. But my feelings about myself are not a referendum on you. I'm very aware that forty four is not old. Although it's relative, right? I thought I wasn't gonna make it pass thirty. So and I do understand we're trying to smash the patriarchy here. And that includes not feeling old. We're not but. But as a woman, I like to declare how I feel when I wanted to clear it, and in no way, do I imply that my feelings apply to you. Sometimes I feel that way. I know that you guys and your twenties. Sometimes you're like, I'm so old. You know, that is in no way saying that people who are age or older or younger are old. You know? That's this isn't on you. It's on me. Yeah. It's more a reflection of my experience with time personally. Personal shares. The same numbers me. I've lived a thousand lifetimes in my brain. Make it stuff. I'm sure we all have right? Yeah. Yeah. And there's days we feel really young. There's days we really feel really old. So and also, I'm a comedian in these are jokes. Dow didn't talk about Peri menopause. Well, when I talk about good point. Yeah. All our. No content there. The start a whole new podcast called are you there? God it's be menopause. And it's gonna be me talking about how old I am all the time. No another thing at the end of the last episode. We were pointing at pointing out that the chief of staff at the Pentagon Sweeney quit because Mattis quit, but we learned the day after we recorded that that he was actually forced out. So keep your eye on Trump urging all non loyalists, including me, please don't fire me. It's been happening for a while. All right. We have a ton of news to get to. So let's jump in with just the facts. Okay. On monday. We got an update on the Concorde management subpoena battle in the Muller investigation. Concord management is a sorry. Concord management and catering is a Russian company headed up by promotion. That's putin. Chef they pleaded not guilty to charges filed by the Muller investigation Muller probe last year in the social media case against Russian meddling.

Me either bad star lady lady judge. She took issue with the character and nature of the defense attorneys. Filings talent basically said knock it off it out.

"browder" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM

"I'm Jessica Rosenthal this year when President Trump met with Russia's President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Finland. They held a joint press conference and during it Putin said he'd be interested in sort of a deal, the US give him access to a guy named Bill Browder, and he'd give the US access to interview twelve Russian intelligence agents who were indicted for interfering in our election Trump called it an incredible offer. So naturally, we had to reach out to this Bill Browder, and it turned out to be my favorite interview done for the rundown podcast over the past year, he called himself Putin's number one foreign enemy. So we had to ask him. Who is he and why did Putin namedrop them? Well, Putin has been on a roll for a long time trying to attack me publicly. This isn't the first time won't be the last time. He seriously rattled Bindi wi-fi rattled because I'm the guy behind the Magnitsky act, which imposes asset freezes and. Thanks on corrupt Russian officials, and as he is a corrupt Russian official. He feels very. Exposed to this. And he's an angry with me being the guy who get got the act passed not only United States, but in six other countries around the world. And so he's a he considers me to be one of his mortal enemies, you were considered the largest foreign investor in Russia until what two thousand five I had an investment fund called the Hermitage fund. It was the largest investment fund in the country four and a half billion dollars of assets under management we had discovered corruption in some of the biggest Russian state owned companies like gas and spare Bank we exerted to expose the corruption as a way of clean up the investment environment there and in retaliation was expelled from the country in two thousand five declared a threat to national security. I was in my office is within rated Moscow the police seized all of our documents. And then they use the documents to perpetrate a very complex a two hundred and thirty million dollar tax refund fraud where they basically saw two hundred and thirty million dollars in taxes. We pay. Lead to the Russian government from the Russian government. You had already paid you guys had already paid those taxes, and they took those they took an additional two hundred and thirty million dollars. So we pay two hundred thirty million dollars of taxes to the Russian government the Russian. Authorities used Albert documents to seize our company and then apply for that as a tax refund. Young lawyer named Sergei Magnitsky who figured it out spotted the whole thing. And and then he exposed it. And then in retaliation for exposing it he was arrested put in pretrial detention tortured for three hundred and fifty eight days and murdered member. Sixty two thousand nine eight map years ago, and I've been on a mission to get Justice for him ever since. And that's led to the passage of Magnitsky act around the world as a way of punishing corrupt violators from Russia and Putin when he saw this happening declared it his largest foreign policy priority to try to stop it Magnitsky act results in frozen visas and assets of people who committed human rights violations, and it's become a thing applied not just to Russians. But all. Over after President Trump signed an order giving it global reach about a year ago. The EU has tentatively approved its own version of the Magnitsky act, and it's already being used in countries. Like, Canada, the UK, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania. This was passed in the United States the magnet scat in two thousand twelve was I was reading it was the first time the US sanctions Russia in thirty five years. That's correct. That's correct. And there's something else which happened which in retaliation for the passage of the Magnitsky act Hooton men ban the adoption of Russian orphans by American families point out. These are orphans that are sick for the most part with down syndrome, HIV, spinal bifida and Americans were taking these children back to America with open arms and open heart. They will streaming back to health and the kids were surviving and had a good life in Russia. The orphanages don't have the resources and the kids die Putin within his own orphan to death in retaliation for the Magnitsky act in a way to try to support his uncle. Officials managed ending is that in two thousand sixteen Russian attorney Anatolia sky-high she had a meeting at Trump Tower, then and I guess her talking points from that meeting have since been translated in which she called the passage of the Magnitsky act start of a new Cold War. And I say this half-jokingly are you at the center, then of how tense things have become between the US and Russia. Well, what I what I I'm a dissenter of how things have gotten between the United States Russia. He's done all this stuff. I've just been a catalyst tell the story, but everybody understands how evil Latimer Putin, and I should point out that Talia estimates guy in that meeting had the same talking point the exact same talking points with bladder Putin and healthy with President Trump, this this has been going on the same spin has been going on from Putin from the Kremlin for many years. Now, nothing new that he's saying it's been going on for a while and going on in basically to the Trump. To the Trump Donald Trump junior. And then Donald Trump senior when President Trump said that Putin had a great idea, let the Russian investigators talked to certain Americans, namely you in exchange for letting molar special counsel team talked to recently, indicted, Russians, I can only imagine not shock to you. Well, I if more shocking than you think because some first of all I'm not American I emigrated to the UK twenty nine years ago British citizen, so Trump doesn't really have the authority to hand me over to Putin. That would be a conversation with Theresa May. But there's a number of people who are American that the Russians want to get their hands on Mike McFaul, the former US ambassador to Russia. They want to get their hands on a man named Kyle Parker who the senior member a senior staff member in congress who is the author of the person who drafted the Magnitsky act. They want to get their hands on on a guy named rob Bob Otto, who is a senior State Department official who is involved in in doing all the research for the Magnitsky act. They wanted to get their hands on three members of three special agents from the department of homeland security who are investigating money-laundering connected to Putin and his crony in the United States. And so for Trump to even consider that to be interesting idea, and then to have Sarah Huckabee Sanders, say they're considering it is about as close to season if you can get you wrote an op Ed this week after the press conference between Mr Putin and President Trump that you actually you live in fear for your life. And you, you know, your little bit less worried about Putin having.

Under fire Danske Bank faces fresh money laundering inquiry

"Power of these tech companies. Now you bring up the fact that they're becoming a media company. And of course we had AT and t. Time Warner merger which included CNN and of what the judge said in his ruling was looking at the outsized power of these companies in the digital advertising space. You see that response, but is regulation. The right strategy are finds the right strategy is any of that going to make a difference when you consider how large the market capitalization of these four or five companies are. So when you have a company like Google with one hundred billion dollars in cash and you find five billion dollars, what you're actively telling Google to do is to continue to break the law. If you had a parking meter in front of your house, that cost one hundred dollars an hour, but the ticket was twenty five cents. You would continue to break the law and that's what we've been telling these companies to do with fines. That might sound large dollar terms, but in terms of impact aren't that large, you ask what we should do. I believe regulation has unintended consequences. I think GDP are has actually emboli. And strengthen these companies position. I believe that the future to oxygen eight, the marketplace is to break these guys up. I think antitrust action is the way to go that there is a real risk of that. Now, I know that the US attorney general Jeff Sessions having a meeting with states attorneys generals next week to discuss this very topic restarting to hear that word, antitrust rebates starting to hear the word monopoly associated with some of these companies. Is that a growing regulatory risk for these mega tech companies? Could you actually see them getting broken up? I used to think there was no way because Amazon is eighty eight fulltime lobbyists in DC. We in the US I would say suffer a little bit from what I call this gross idolatry of innovators and billionaires. We see them as our heroes, but I do think there is a movement of foot now, whether it happens out of DC, I would say most likely, no. I think the pushback is gonna come out of Brussels and possibly a red state. We're an attorney general in that state's he's at the brightest blue line path. The governor's mansion is to make an argument against these tech. Companies to quite frankly probably haven't been good. Have they been going for California? Yes, New York s? Has it been good for Kansas? What's happened to the ad agencies? The retailers, the businesses in those states. I think a lot of these red states have decided, you know, big tech it. We've been net losers here, so I don't think it's going to come out at DC at might the DOJ should absolutely do its job. The call to restrain. The acquisition of this company was read in comparison to the power of these other companies. So I actually do believe there's there is a non zero probability now that the DOJ or the FTC or a state AG Michael after these companies and accused him of anticompetitive behavior and propose antitrust and breaking up as a solution. It's an interesting paradox because you have Amazon yet to announce the second location for its headquarters, and you have, you know, local mayors and governors of morning Amazon at the same time. You see it coming under increasing potential enemy trust scrutiny and other bad headlines following it as well. Do you. You see public opinion changing at all toward the power of these big tough tech companies. While at the same time, we're also dependent on the warm is absolutely turned two years ago. The only argument was is more Christ. Like we're going to be the next president among their see is really the weaponization of the Facebook platform by the GRU of the Russian government changed everything. And now. Oh, citizens. Citizens have are starting to feel a lot more wary about these firms, but you brought up an interesting point the competition to be the host of the next age. Q. and regulation are linked Stephanie because the next headquarters for Amazon will be Washington DC, the metro area, and the reason why, and it was always going to be DC is one the basis have a home there, and CEO gets to pick with a company. Second headquarters are going to be. And so the only thing standing in between Amazon, Amazon's valuation of one trillion in two trillion is regulation, and no one is going to regulate the individual. The throws out the first pitch at the two thousand nineteen opening game of the Washington nationals which will be Jeff Bezos. This competition was a Reuss to transfer wealth from fire departments and school departments to this shareholders of Amazon. It was always going to be DC. This has been a terrible abuse of the Commonwealth. And how many lobbyists does Amazon have in DC right now. Last check Eighty-eight fulltime lobbyists in DC, Scott Galloway. We're gonna have to see if you're right on that. It's going to be embarrassing of announce big Indianapolis. Well, DC could certainly use the jobs, Scott. Thank you so much. Thank you.

Inside Trump's isolated days amid Russia fallout

"On Bloomberg radio. I'm Jim Grasso President Trump stunned the world is past Monday during, a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki when he publicly sided, with the former KGB officer. Over his own intelligence communities findings about Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election I, have President Putin he just said. It's not Russia I will say this I don't see any reason why. It would be despite Trump's attempt, at backtracking the next day the fallout remains fierce here. To tell us more is Eli lake a columnist for Bloomberg opinion so what's your reaction to Trump. Siding with Putin over US intelligence agencies On a certain level mind boggling but I don't want to he didn't just side with, Vladimir Putin on the question of Russian meddling in the twentieth sixteen election and for that matter. Warnings of the twenty thousand eighteen election he also into que- or purchase Vladimir Putin equation of a completely unrelated matter which is a former. American could have been, named William Browder who is attempting to. Pressure the Russian government for Justice Former was murdered in two thousand nine in a Russian proven with the American. On forcement apparatus Beveren to hold Russia accountable for packing up leading Democrats and others are just posing fake online personas in order to try to influence the electric and while I certainly can understand why the, president would be frustrated at the. As of yet unproven charge of collusion is often drag up there and he didn't do any of this and that you know the Democrats won't let it. Go he should be able to separate that from. What I think is now incontrovertible fact that Russia hack eating Democrats and then distributed at them. On the internet that is a terrible invasion of privacy of individuals it's. Terrible stepping over the line in terms of meddling in the US election in wild questions certainly try to do the kind of thing before in the Soviet era it wasn't Okay then and out of a now and you know for Trump failure on this. Sort of knowledge even though he tried to walk it back is again. I'd say Mind-boggling you write that he's created another Charlottesville moment, how so Well. Real probably Charlottesville was a moral equivalency between people were protesting a group, of racists in white nationalist came to Charlottesville over confederate statues and then the people demonstrating. Saying cues And when you said there, are very fine people on both sides McMahon of nauseating And I think that it's similar in that on the world stage at Helsinki the president deems almost Elaine The, problem with, the US relationship is found on both sides and that Russia attacked, you sort of indicated that you know we had some blame in that and that is the kind of In, foreign affairs that we associate with, people like Noam Chomsky or rush Rush fringe. Figures for the president of the. United voice to that kind of thing it. Just really the gut check these are not our values for most Americans I. Don't think most Trump's. Supporters what you've been agreeing with any of that so it. Is extraordinarily I have refrained from speculating whether Russia has something on him, I think you explain this in some ways. Because Trump has these conviction, but he wants a better relationship with Russia there are arguments about that but, there is still no, excuse for this kind of moral equivalency between Russia which really right, now you don't have to characterize it a predator state and United States which is the world's most powerful nation that is the anchor of the system of free trade Mitchell I mean..
