"burris mma" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"To me sort of like static and just sort of like a slow deterioration with trump, but who knows I would say in two or three months. When the Elliott's come down, they may have like. They may have some new information on Burris MMA that they were able to get satellites. intercepts but the big story for me are a the abject failure. Of Our. Society I mean it's this. Is Society wide to deal with this pandemic? Then the other one that is I think far more hopeful, but also interesting, and I know you're between a lot about this. is. The. The seemingly complete lack of awareness that the. I mean put aside the Republicans for a moment that the establishment Democrats have for what's happening in their own party. Yeah, absolutely, yeah, and let's start with that because over the past couple of weeks. we had a major upset. I mean I think like the? The Elliott Angle. Thing cannot be overstated because you know Crowley you could you could, and they certainly tried to write it off as like he had. No idea was coming, and he got very cocky, and of course he was overconfident. Because House this, you know whatever. Twenty eight year old. Woman, who was a bartender going to knock him off and he just got. You know flat-footed. But Angle. Should have been on notice right, but they didn't buy. They did not buy it. And then we also saw this stuff about like just as Democrats, they can't do anything and and and you know they're not the they're in like in year three or four of what they're doing, essentially and to get bowman in. There to get as close as they did with Charles Booker. Yeah I mean the these are big deals. It seems to me now Hickenlooper. I feel like the progressive sort of. Didn't move quick enough on Romanoff. Great in. Maybe you know in some respects like you know. If Romanov had gotten the attention that booker had hooker frankly is more interesting candidate to me. Romanoff is good. Romanov. Probably has a better chance. Whoever wins that primary in Colorado actually being senator exactly and so you know. The, you know the the progressive movement has to start start to sort of like. Be Able to make those calculations right like you get romanoff elected. He's going to be senator. Maybe not booker, but booker is more exciting. So how do you do that, but just talk a little bit about your your sense of but that whole dynamic. I think. We'll right the sort of triumphalism. Democratic leaders like that justice. Democrats will like we, you know. We keep beating them over and over again, and of course that will continue forever I mean I don't know why they thought that would continue for our but now I think what we're. You know what we're seeing some sort of very obvious things happening in which you're talking about. About which is like coordination and candidate selection are very difficult. Those are the two hardest things to do. Democrats I mean be where we use. These terms by think loosely people mostly. We're talking about when you say. Establishment Democrats their their argument for themselves at that's the thing that they're good at and I think their track record on that abysmal. And you know that sort of I think that's actually one of the main intra-party debates doesn't get aired in those terms often enough. Is that the argument for the D? Triple seat types in the SEC types that we've been doing this long time. We know how how to identify the candidates. We know which raises to focus on, and then you know they they're actual track. Record of getting people elected is okay, and then their track record once in office is. Not that impressive I think the book race was incredibly interesting to because I, do think. That's one where he came very close, and that he might have done it if it weren't for the early voting and that was just an example of like. People were got exposed to this other option. Because the way that the DNC SEC does it when they swoop in and anoint candidate is like they don't want you to consider another option. That's unrealistic, but people were told what you actually have a choice and they seized it, and so I think that's that's sort of the the thing that will be. Crucial going forward is like figuring out when and where to to coordinate and figuring out when to actually get involved in these races. Do from the perspective of progressives because I, you know. I can understand the Chuck Schumer. I mean look I think you and I think are in some agreement here. we think. CHUCK SCHUMER IS DIM. Sum respect, yeah, and I. You know my senses. He went in there and it was just about money. Essentially he thought that he thought that Amy McGrath a female that you know could get money and there. I can't tell and maybe these are mutually exclusive I can't tell if they just don't understand what's happening in terms of what's going on in the country like the idea that aiming McGrath can beat Mitch McConnell is. Well you know. I hope she does grow, but but it's very hard to imagine that she can like the idea that like you see the. Hackney, but she's just going up there and being like A. I don't know she's saying that she's going to get along with trump more than Mitch McConnell. Like where is the like? Nobody believes that right like you know like you know it's not like. It's not like she's Cunanan, which was maybe then she can. Actually yeah but I. Don't know that you know. Democrats should be promoting Cunanan person right there. Just no path for her ripe and. The and to the extent that there is, it would be short live.

"That the intelligence community doesn't always have the accesses and insights to know what's real and what's fake. There's some of that I think is cognisant from our sources and others that it is an analytic judgment and then thirdly we might not have insight at all joining us now Malcolm Nance former counterterrorism intelligence officer in the MSNBC Counter Terrorism and intelligence agents analyst. He's the author of the plot to destroy democracy. How Putin and his speiser undermining America in dismantling the West Malcolm? We've written three books on this like you really understand this. There should be back area. One security report says I think what we all think. Our report is noteworthy because we identified the GRU launching a fishing campaign nor is the targeting of a Ukrainian company particularly novel it is significant because Burris MMA holdings is publicly entangled in UN far and US foreign and domestic stick politics. This is the company at the heart of this whole thing that was sending Rudy Giuliani and left parties. And all these guys to Ukraine. You're absolutely right and what you are looking at here what your audience needs to understand you are looking at the dawn of the DNC hacking two point point out this is essentially 2016. Being played out again Russian intelligence with the intent to hack the mindset that of the American public once again so that whole campaign of Hillary Clinton and her emails where all of this chum was thrown into the water in front of US news media. That is what's happening again. They're starting it early and they intend to take this information and hopefully US newsmedia. We'll just ignore about the the you know. The what the subjects of the debate and go after salacious information that may be manufactured third by a foreign in. Let's examine this some of this information but at some point they may release and now that we know everybody has in in their head that this information has been hacked. Now you'll start to see emails. Some of them might really be leaked emails. And there's a there's a a way I suppose you view the media the role of the media in that case and some of them might not be. We won't even know. Now that's I think what Shelby Pearson was saying is that it's really kind of hard to know when somebody does one. What these puts this chum in the water whether it's real bummer fake chump well what Shelby Pearson was saying was from the perspective of the Office of National Intelligence agents? The United States doesn't dedicate resources to determining what's real and what's falls out in the public information sphere and that was sort of her throwing her hands up up and essentially saying it's not my job to police facebook but Russia understands this. You have to understand. This is an intelligence agency that a successor to the KGB the KGB spent decades studying how the American public's mindset works and what is effective for them in propaganda now propaganda moves at the speed of one key stroke and it cannot be stopped once release. So what you do. This particular technique the Russians Russians are using is called up streaming. This is where you intercept communications. Are you intercept texts and get a stream of hacked material. You release release all of the material. That's true invalid but at strategic points you in certain black propaganda. That's Dr Documents or or documents which may be true but out of the proper sequence. Looks like something significant this is now. Since they don't have wikileaks they use you they want. US News Media and the pro trump campaign data campaign to be the weapon system. Which guides these disinformation payloads into the mindset of the public to bring a nefarious scandal out that literally is manufactured by hostile intelligence agency? Malcolm thank you for your analysis as always Malcolm Nance coming up next. We're going to dig into a topic that I'm really passionate about. It might be the biggest problem we face as a country. It's a problem that was there before Donald Trump and it will be with us after Donald Trump and a whole lot of pieces.

Is that what the setup to this sounded like to you. I clearly hear a struggle die bit that the reason that Hunter Biden got on on the board was because of Joe Biden being the vice president of the United States and he might have had something to do with Burris MMA getting him on the board and then hundred biden pardon might have had some sort of way of setting up a liaison between burris Ma and Barack Obama.

US lawmakers clash over impeachment charges against Trump

"Today. The House Judiciary Committee is marking up. The articles of impeachment in a confrontational televised hearing. Were also learning new details about the inevitable Senate trial early next year. I've got to fantastic guests. Tell me unpack all the news of the day in a few minutes. We'll be talking with White White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks that CNN. Political analyst. April Ryan but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN producer and reporter the relentless Marshall. Cohen Marshall Thank you so much for being here on the podcast. Thank you David so I want you to hear a little bit of sound from today's hearings now just I said marking up. The what is happening here is actually like the normal legislative process. What you know when When a bill gets introduced in committee it gets marked up that means each side? Has the ability need to make amendments to the bill change it and the committee homes that bill and then passes that to the full House and that is what is happening with these articles of impeachment. Now of course. The Democrats crafted these articles. They're very comfortable with the language and they're trying to change anything. Republicans are being given the opportunity Obviously To be able to slow roll this day make their political points Try to amend the articles but they're outvoted time and time again. procedurally These two articles are likely to be passed out of committee before the day is done and then onto the house floor for a vote next week. But that's the process. Here's the rhetoric I want you to I hear hear from Congresswoman Pramilla Jal of Washington state will any one of my colleagues on the other side. Say that it is an abuse of power to condition aid to condition aid on official acts. We'll forget about president trump. Aw Forget about President. Trump is any one of my colleagues willing to say that it is ever okay for President of the United States of America to invite foreign interference in our elections. Not a single one of you has has said that so far what I heard jibe. How say this Marshall? Today my ears perked up because she was really trying to remove donald trump from the equation and really focus on the fact that Republicans on the hill. Her colleagues on the other side of that day are would from her perspective blindly in lockstep with him no matter what so her her whole arguments here stripped him out of it. Are you okay with this presidential behavior. We've heard from a couple of Republicans. Mike Turner of Ohio will hurt Texas that have indicated the the phone call with Dolinsky that trump's language was not okay. I mean I think Turner used that that exact phrase Mr President. This is not okay yet. He fully does oppose impeachment She wishes it. Was that simple though. You could just strip trump out right hand mant trying to make an argument larger about Republicans here right about being just blindly lockstep with him. But they don't agree with her on the merits of this. Either right she's she said said two things she said trump Conditioned official acts on these favors number one and number two solicited election help from Ukraine crane. Now Democrats are in lockstep. That that's what happened Most outside observers that are acting in good faith would say that that is apparently apparently what happened but the Republicans dispute both of those right they say number one there was no direct proof that trump conditioned the military aid aide on the investigation. And you didn't hear that From anyone not even sunland right. Who said a Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the U.? You who said that. It was conditioned on the White House invitation but not necessarily the military and then secondly we've been hearing this all day from Republicans today they're not conceding the ground that this was trump soliciting election. Help they're still arguing and they've been doing all day that this was trump trying to crack down down on corruption because Burris MMA The Ukrainian energy company was corrupt. And Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved with these corrupt crooked get actors so problem with the ground. Marshall can you point to all the other places that Donald Trump has made it policy to fight corruption and using Presidential Oval Office meetings meetings and Military aid is a way to accomplish cycle no and the Republicans are acting in bad faith by pushing both of these points it strains credulity ability it it defies logic. It's it's not a good faith. Argument here is perhaps a better argument from the Republicans that I wanted to hear from a Republican Congressman of California in Utah McClintock. His argument is really neither of those things. It is that the president has the ability to set policy here. And what is At core in McClintock's point of view here is all of these witnesses. You've heard from data policy disagreement of the way he was managing the Ukraine relationship relationship and priority. Here's McClintock MR chairman. The constitution introduces the President. With fifteen words. Executive Power shall be vested in a president under the United States of America. It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant colonels the NFC Ambassador State Department officials are Cabinet Secretaries Rotarians the only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the president so all of the criticisms and resentments Johnson personal and political disagreements. That we've heard from those officials are completely irrelevant. I give him some credit there for making a a constitutional to tional argument on the constitutional question of impeachment. Is he right well. The president does get to set the policy but if the the policy is essentially that the United States government should be used to help the re election of Donald J trump then okay. The president sets that policy but it's in his own personal interest. The outcome of that official policy is for his his personal benefit and as Democrats describe it. What you just described is in violation of the Constitution and the oath of office that he swore You know when he became president. That is Nancy Pelosi's ultimate point right when when we discussed this yesterday. Whenever she's pressed on the politics of this she she goes to her oath of office to protect and defend and uphold the constitution and that the president violated that very oath that he also takes? Ah On she's not you know hooting and hollering and making a big show out of this in many ways. It's been very much reluctant march to get here. And and you know I think the strongest proof of that is that when Nancy Pelosi in the Democrats took over in January of this year. They didn't impeach anybody they didn't even they tried to snuff out talk of impeachment and anytime did any of the more Liberal members of their caucus started bringing it up Pelosi's he just shot it down over and over the are largely here. I think it's pretty clear that they are here because they feel like the president forced them to do this that he was so so unconstitutional and so much putting the integrity of our next election at stake that they had to do it period. So where do we go from here. Marshall so These articles get passed out of committee. Today I assume on a party line vote. We have no indication that there's a Democrat on judiciary. WHO's not in favor of these? These articles of impeachment and judiciary is known to be a a more partisan committee of all the committees on on Capitol Hill And then we see action on the House floor Lord but what happens between now and then yeah right so the question is going to be. How many Democrats are going to break ranks and joined the Republicans a few have already stated their opposition? No big surprises there I think that the the same guys that voted against authorizing the inquiry are going to be voting against impeachment number two of those Jeff Andrew of of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota. That's right so no big surprise there I don't think that anybody really believes that. Either of these articles of impeachment each mint will get voted down by the house. It seems like there's a They've crossed that threshold based off of where we are right now. That could change but You know is it going to issue going to drop. Is Nancy Pelosi to lose more to this. Point where it's kind of embarrassing and people will sort of get second thoughts and feel like it's limping. Something over to the Senate or will they keep it in the low single digits. Maybe you can count it on one hand and say well it's too bad that we didn't get any Republicans but look we still have a clear majority very few defections and we did our jobs and now we'll kick it over to our colleagues in the upper

"Yesterday. We looked at the origin of president. Trump's theory that Ukraine not Russia meddled in the two thousand sixteen election one of the two theories that he Ask Ukraine's president to investigate today. Trump's second theory it's Wednesday November twenty awesome so when trump goes on Fox and friends on Friday for this long long stream of consciousness phone interview. He reiterates his theory. Totally debunked theory about the Ukrainians and not the Russians tacking into the DNC servers. And then he also brings up this other theory. So Mr President. The the the the accusation is this that you're using aide taxpayer dollars to attack a political opponent in Joe Biden and that has to do with Joe Biden. His son Hunter Biden and their work in Ukraine vocal is a Washington correspondent for the Times. And I will tell you this about Joe Biden. I never I never said it specifically on him but I watch Joe Biden with the prosecutor who a lot of people said was a great prosecutor and they took him up and he was prosecuting that company and the kid who never made ten cents in his life and all of a sudden is making millions of dollars that they can. What exactly is the president's second in theory here about the violence would trump alleges? Is that Joe Biden. During his time as vice president pressure the Ukrainian government to fire their top top prosecutor essentially their attorney general because that prosecutor was pursuing an investigation into this energy company and Ukraine. That was paying Hunter Biden as a board member and that the reason why Joe Biden pushed for the firing was to protect Hunter Biden and his employer to the theories. Basically the vice president does a favor for his son in the form of official action in Ukraine correct. Okay so where does the story behind behind that claim begin. You GotTa go back to twenty fourteen forty four year old hunter Biden Vice President. Joe Biden's youngest son was discharged from the navy. Aby Reserve Hunter Biden a Yale educated lawyer and had dabbled in various business. Ventures Biden was given a routine drug test which he failed had just been discharged from the navy reserve after testing positive for cocaine. Going a drug test. It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy. And I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge and at this point he and some partners are starting to explore floor. International Opportunities and one of his partners gets this Gig on the board of this Ukrainian gas company that is looking for some western earn political connections and Hunter Biden and asks if he can get in on this as well and he is brought onto the board of this company. And it's out of the. US vice-president Vice President has joined the board of directors of Ukraine's largest private gas producer. Hunter Biden was appointed to the board of burris MMA Holdings this company is called Barista Holdings it does primarily natural gas and it is bringing onto its board a number of folks with big political names in the West and one of them is Hunter Biden. He is paid as much as fifty thousand dollars or even more in some months to serve on the board of this company and extensively to help it with governance reforms to sort of introduce Western corporate governance standards into this company. Aw and how clear is it. Can that the reason why hundred is coming onto the board is because of his family connection. I mean is it more or less explicit. This is definitely the message that everyone in Ukraine and and Washington takes away from it as to why Hunter Biden is brought onto the board. You know his defenders point out that he had in fact served on other boards including the Board of Amtrak where his dad famously has a lot of connections in cloud but he doesn't really have much other applicable experience. That would suggest that he is otherwise the ideal candidate to serve on the board of a Ukrainian gas company. He doesn't have any experience in Ukraine or Ukrainian law or even in energy. Okay so what do we need to know about Berea smut at this moment. Hundred arrives on the Board Burris. MMA has faced allegations of corruption including many that are embraced race by the West and by the State Department which sees it in many ways both the company itself Burris Ma and the oligarch who owns the company as poster poster children for post-soviet corruption in Ukraine can. Do we know if Hunter Biden understood this. When he went on the board if he had done any due diligence you would think that he should have known there? Were certainly investigations that were already ongoing both in Ukraine and in the West into the oligarch who own the company on suspicion of money laundering and those investigations had support from the United States government. And that is where Joe Biden comes in. What do you mean we United States? Stand with you. And all the Ukrainian people will Joe Biden at this time as vice president nine and one of his key foreign policy tasks that he takes on at the assignment of president. Brock Obama is to help Ukraine stand up to Russian aggression. It is not just a foreign policy. Judgment is a personal as an emotional commitment as well and one of the things that is seen as an impediment to Ukraine establishing a stable government is this scourge of corruption that has long played it and is seen scene is limiting its ability to attract international investment and to be a stable government that can mount a response Russian aggression. And when is he given that assignment. I mean it comes pretty much at about the same time as Hunter Biden is going onto the board of this Ukrainian Ukrainian Gas Company in early twenty fourteen. So that's kind of complicated. It is and it certainly would provide rationale rationale for this Ukrainian Gas Company and its oligarch owner to want to have a powerful Westerner who is seen as having connections chance to the Obama government. which at this point is pushing Ukraine to clamp down on the very type of corruption that this oligarch and his company is seen as embodying? Does anyone raise the question of whether this is not a great idea that Joe Biden is suddenly investigating getting corruption in Ukraine around the same time that his son is now on the board of a major Ukrainian energy company that is accused of corruption. Yes we know that. There's a guy in the State Department by the name of George. Kent who had deep experience both in Ukraine rain and in fighting corruption it served as the anti-corruption coordinator in the State Department's European Bureau and he does raise concerns about Hunter Biden joining the board of Burris MMA and how Hunter Biden's position could affect Vice President Biden standing as a corruption shen fighter or the leader of the US effort to push Ukraine to clamp down on corruption. But a decision is made that father and son can simultaneously. Do these two things. It actually appears as if the decision was to not make a decision and to not address this George. Kent tried to bring this to the attention of the vice president's staff and was essentially told that Vice President Biden did not have the bandwidth to address this at a time when he was dealing with other family issues particularly his son Bobin his other son struggling with brain cancer. Okay so what exactly does vice president. Joe Biden do during this period in his role as the guy in the Obama Administration. WHO's trying to root out corruption in Ukraine? What does it actually look like? Well Biden focuses on two areas that are seen in the West as bastions of Ukrainian corruption. One is the energy sector and the other is the judicial system The international community entity has long seen the Ukrainian judicial system and particularly the prosecutors. There in as one of the key problems that perpetuate Ukrainian corruption these prosecutors have long been known for using the threat of prosecution to essentially solicit. Bribes comes from potential targets of corruption. So they are not only not prosecuting corruption. They are in fact participating in their own brand of corruption. This was one of the key things that Joe Biden and trained his sights on when he went after Ukrainian corruption dotted so a company would basically pay off the prosecutor prosecutor and the prosecutor therefore wouldn't really prosecute yes and the guy who is seen as emblematic of this type of corruption. Is Victor Shokhin. He's the prosecutor general of Ukraine. It's essentially like the attorney general of Ukraine. And what makes this complicated though. Is that one of the folks who shokhin is not prosecuting. Because it is believed he is using the threat of prosecution to solicit bribes from is none other than the oligarch Lagarde who owns the company Burris Holdings that is paying Hunter Biden to serve as a board member And this is why some of the folks in the State Department had flagged this as a potential concern that could undermine Joe Biden's ability to drive this message and be seen as a credible messenger jour- when in his own house under his own roof. There is someone who is working with a potential target of the type of prosecution that Joe.

Major Takeaways From Tuesday's Impeachment Hearings

"Today was a big day for the public hearings on the impeachment. Investigation number of trump administration administration officials did testify. One of those officials. Was Kurt. Volker who is no longer a trump administration official but he was formally The special envoy in Ukraine now his testimony publicly apparently is different from what he said privately. So let me give you the details IOS according to Various sources The week writes in his original closed door testimony when asked if there was any talk of investigating the Biden's in July ten and meeting with Ukrainian defence leader Volker repeatedly answered no but when appearing publicly before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday Volker reverse that statement on Tuesday Volker acknowledged that Gordon Psalm land the US ambassador to the EU brought up the investigations and that he found it inappropriate in fact in the next clip. That you're about to watch. He discusses what he really feels about the demand for the Biden investigations nations. This references the conversation. I had with Mr Giuliani as well where I think. The the allegations against Vice President Biden ourselves serving bringing and not credible so the fact that he says that it self serving is important because one of the trump defenses that we commonly hear from Republicans is it. What's the big deal? Quid pro quo. We do it all the time right. I mean we do. We make these deals with foreign leaders. Yeah you make the deals with foreign leaders in in an effort to do what's in the best interest of America overall. Not what's in the best interest of the president or his political campaign which was the case with Donald Trump trump or the very least in the best interests of the American military industrial complex but not for individual politicians Yeah and it also undercuts. I I know that a lot of right wingers had been expecting that he might sort of come up hint that well you know there were concerns about Biden at the time. Like that's that's one of the main like one of the main three. I guess defenses if the trump was that obviously issues of Biden and his family and so you cannot say that it was weird to bring it up but he's pointing out that no the people in the meeting knew that there was no legitimate reason talking about investigation by that time and in previous testimony We learned that the investigation into the Biden's makes no sense because the accusation Asian by trump is that Biden wanted to get rid of a prosecutor in Ukraine who was investigating Burris MMA but now we have multiple support people who are part of trump's administration. Saying no that prosecutor who got fired first of all the international community wanted him to get fired because the investigation was a stagnant and that particular prosecutor was corrupt. And so you say that. And it's so simple so easy understand but even that very easy to under the understanding in like three months that this scandal has been in the public like attention. You can't accept that. No I still think no no by Biden project to them so I get your perspective and you're right you're definitely right but also at the same time like this is why the giant conflict of interest of having Hunter Hunter Hunter Biden. Serve on. That board is coming back to bite. Biden You know because you really shouldn't have been on that board. Let's keep it real honest about that. Might China have a big conversation where we finally take stock of the fact. That nepotism is a huge thing in American politics and American business in America entertainment and music and the media and all of that and we we strip all those people that positions that make them actually earn what they get. Ben Sure we get rid of Hunter Biden in you. Know Jared Kushner doesn't have his job and you get the trump's aren't running the trump organization Shen and Meghan McCain's off the view and everything. I think we can totally have that conversation. It's probably long overdue. But that is not what Donald Trump was trying to do. It is so disingenuous of the right to pretend that that trump actually cared about hunter by not insofar as hurts the credibility of Biden an election but because Hunter Biden being on that board means well. That's really hurting the energy sector of Ukraine. I won't stand for it. No Look I. One hundred percent agree with you and think about Donald Trump and the nepotism within his own administration. I mean two of his top advisors are family members who have absolutely no business serving in the White House or in any form of government for that matter. Yeah so One other quote from volkers testimony that I wanNA share with you. He said quote. I participated in on the July ten meeting between National Security Adviser Bolton and then Ukrainian chairman of the National Security and Defense Council. Alex Danube Daniel loop. Who has the best name I love? Because as a reminder The meeting was essentially over when ambassador. Gordon solid again. Gordon Sahlin keeps coming coming up Made a generic comment about investigations. I think all of us thought it was inappropriate. The conversation did not continue and the meeting concluded. Yeah so can I just talk briefly about So Volker his what he just said a little bit different in some substantive ways from what you said earlier silent was the earlier version of that he originally originally said no quid pro quo totally not. And he's like sorry I meant quid pro quo. It's easy to get this to mix up and you know why the reason why changes testimony is because his testimony conflicted did a great deal from the testimony given by other trump administration officials exactly in. So that's what's really interesting about. The Republicans didn't want the closed door hearings. They also coincidentally don't want the public ones but they didn't want the private ones but the thing that the private ones brought was they had multiple people come in talk about what they knew and then when stuff started to come out from it some of them started to realize like oh it's gonna be really hard to sustain what I told them or best case scenario some of them their memories jogged or whatever and so now they're story is changing especially when they have apparently come to the understanding that they work for a guy that would love to throw them under a bus and they. They don't want to be the person who goes down for this Gordon San's like this was just fun man. I just spent a million dollars. I thought it'd be cool to be ambassador for a few years. I don't WanNa go to jail for Donald Trump. And so if Gordon Gordon Sunland tells the truth or at the very least avoids going to jail for perjury or something like that. Then at the very least from his point of view it passes the buck to Rudy Giuliani. Who can go to jail right? And I think that it is honestly given what we've heard 'cause look we know that investigations into trump don't necessarily work out out the way that you would expect them to. Even if there's overwhelming evidence you know the obstruction of justice outlined in the report is just so clear but all the people surrounding funding Donald Trump who engaged in any type of criminal activity paid the consequences. So if I had to take a bet on. The fate of Rudy Giuliani Donald. Trump's personal lawyer. He's in a lot of trouble. And trump will throw him under a bus as soon as it's convenient for him to do so.

'Quid Pro Quo': People Are Searching for 'Something' as Trump Faces Impeachment Threat

"To this special edition of the lead White House in crisis. I'm Jake Tapper and we begin today with a historic day. In Washington where norms are being eroded and facts facts trampled upon president trump today telling the American people in essence ignore all the evidence you have been presented with including his own words those of his aides when it comes to the president's clear use of his presidency to push foreign leaders to investigate his political opponent Joe Biden and his son hunter last night further evidence emerged that such an investigation was part of a quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Alinsky the President's AIDS in texts clearly eerily pushing Alinsky to publicly commit to an investigation into Burris MMA the gas firm that wants employed Hunter Biden before the president would agree to a White House visit for his Alinsky one. That's Alinsky desperately wanted. You know when this came out. It was pro quo while the was done. There's no quid pro quo. There's no quid pro quo. There is no bro well repeating the denial of a quid pro quo which is something exchanged with the expectation of receiving something in return repeating. It doesn't make it any truer especially after the first witness in the Ukraine scandal handed over stunning text message exchanges to Congress in which a top diplomat in Ukraine wrote quote as I said said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign unquote president trump today continued to deny hi that it's inappropriate for a president to push for dirt on political opponents. He called it an obligation to look into corruption but when asked today by a reporter if he could name name one other time one other time that he pushed for an investigation into alleged door invented corruption not of a political opponent well president trump said did this would have we would have to look the president says George Orwell once throat in one thousand nine hundred quote. The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final most essential command unquote a philosophy that that is the apparent White House strategy for the scandal or as president trump wants. Just remember what you're seeing in. What you're you're reading is not what's happening. Actually it is and today the first crack in the Republican Venire Solidarity Party with President Trump Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah saying quote the President's brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling unquote. CNN's Kaitlan Collins is at the White House and Caitlyn. There's also now a Republican senator who is saying that he heard heard of this quid pro quo and confronted president trump about it yeah. Republican Senator Ron Johnson telling the Wall Street Journal that the US ambassador to to the European Union told him that the status of that military aid for Ukraine was tied to those investigations that the president wanted to see the country carry out now that's significant for two reasons one because that ambassador to the EU told another top US diplomat and Ukraine that there was no quid pro quo that there was no correlation in that essentially what he thought was happening was not happening. It's also significant because Ron Johnson tells the Wall Street Journal that he confronted President Trump over this who says adamantly denied that the two were linked something we saw the president do repeatedly in front of reporters today when and I speak to you a foreign leader I seek in an appropriate manner president trump's stuck with that line of defense today as he was forced to defend calling on another foreign leader to to investigate his political rival something he claims has nothing to do with the upcoming election. I don't care about five campaign. What I do care hear about corruption after suggesting China should look into Joe Biden trump denied linking it to a potential trade deal. One thing has nothing to do with the other making. I'm back claim even though he mentioned trade right before saying this Thursday China started investigation into the by trump hasn't personally asked China's president to launch an investigation he says but sources tell C. N. N. During a summer phone call that he not only promised President Xi Jinping he remained quiet on pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. He also raised Biden Elizabeth Warren which he says he doesn't remember number. was that in twenty seventeen. I don't know you'd have to tell me when one question trump didn't answer today whether he'd ask other countries to investigate someone who's not his political opponent but he did confirm he'll dare house speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a formal vote on on an impeachment inquiry before the White House will cooperate well. We'll be issuing. Let the White House Democrats don't have the authority to demand documents without without one the Democrats say otherwise these people are looking for anything they can get the Ukraine scandals overshadowing the September. The jobs report which showed the unemployment rate fell to three point five percent the best numbers. We've had over fifty years now. Jake some the ministry officials want to only focus on that September jobs report but it's getting harder and harder to see how they'll do that now that house Democrats just in the last hour have now requested Democrats a crowd or excuse me documents related to Ukraine from the vice president's office as well of course he traveled to Poland last month instead of the president going where he met whether Ukrainian leader though it's unclear jake how the vice president's office is going to respond to that request all right and he pushed Zilenski on the corruption issue. It's unclear if he said anything about the Biden's or any of the other investigations that the president wants Kaitlan Collins. Thank you so much president trump let's bring in in my my panel right now my experts president trump says he's only focused on corruption not investigations of his rivals but then he wasn't able to answer this question from even Jabar's about what other individuals he's pushed foreign when it comes to corruption investigation listen corrupted investigation that don't involve other cases. I have to Let me start with you. Surely the White House must have known that eventually president trump would be asked about this corruption so important you know. Where are you on on

"So you're gonna pay Barack Obama reparations for slavery present former president of the United States, half black half, white, actually, not descended from black slaves descended from African African. Immigrant or an at that actually just an African National who happened to have been in America. You know, we talked yesterday about how the first formerly recognized American slave owner of an arbitrary our betray early declared slave for life was a black guy. Does that guy's ancestors? Do they get reparations? Let's say as is the case for most black Americans that they have some white ancestry, maybe a white slave owner ancestry. Do they get reparations? How white is to white how black is black. Are we going to resurrect the racist one drop rule to save you one drop of black blood than you are black that makes you essentially racially, black, and it defines, you entitles you to some reparations, one of the reasons there are many reasons that reparations are totally impracticable in two thousand nineteen, but one of them with the most offensive one is that it is a racially essentially idea that just does not jive with reality. It doesn't jive with one hundred fifty years of American history and immigration and, and descent. Just even my I don't know. I'm descended from talionis Irish Welsh English old Sicilians all these sorts of people, which is me for mixed race people or they black or white which ways out the other one doesn't make a lot of sense. Burgess owns showed some of that absurdity I, but the entire reparations debate yesterday was a sideshow, and it was all just part of the broader absurd clown show, which is the twenty twenty democrat presidential primary other bad news came out for Joe Biden yesterday beyond the race stuff. The mainstream media are finally asking questions about his shady deals with his son in Ukraine, and in China, so, well, Joe Biden was chief diplomat was vice president. He was he was leading American negotiations in the Ukraine. And in China hunter Biden his son was getting shady deals. He got a I think a billion dollars or more of funding out. Of China for a company called Rosemont that he was working with. And in the Ukraine he was able to get a fifty five thousand dollar per month retainer when he was on the board of a company called Burris MMA holdings. This was while Biden was there and negotiating with Ukraine Biden as the chief diplomat for Ukraine was threatening to withhold American aid to Ukraine. If Ukraine fire prosecutor looking into his sons shady business dealings, it was pretty pretty rough. And we've been talking about this for months on this show finally, the mainstream media, started, asking the questions just within the last two days was hunter Biden profiting off his dad's work as vice president and Jill Biden, and allow it we're talking about millions of dollars in at least two countries. Mr Vice president, Tom Llamas, ABC news, how you doing? Got a quick question for you. It's a question. We tried to ask repeatedly. Can we ask you about Ukraine and China, but kept getting blocked questions? About four deals. His son hunter by pursued my father, Joe Biden in countries were Joe Biden Burkina's, America's top diplomat, Mr Vice-President. What's your take on that? Was there a conflict of interest, there was there a clear conflict of interest? Hey look, we've got journalists in the mainstream media. Finally, this is I know it's a cold and chilly day in hell, and pigs are flying all over the world because a mainstream network journalist is asking tough questions of Joe Biden questions that we've been asking on this show for months. So why are they asking it now? Why what changed? I mean we've known this story for a long time. Obviously, Joe Biden is ducking the question because he knows he's, he's guilty as sin here. He later gave a statement or his campaign gave a statement that said that if he were elected president, he would empower White House ethics lawyers to monitor these sorts of activities that he engaged..

"Trop navy arming congress with fresh evidence at his willingness abuse, his office of stunning three pronged attack on the rule of law this weekend, Donald Trump expressing his willingness to use his Justice department, investigate a political opponent telling politico, he just might talk to his attorney general Biden, medication this, of course, comes on the heels of Rudy Giuliani's much ballyhooed plan visit to Ukraine committal in that country's investigation into the Biden's trip. That's been called off due to the bad press it garnered, but the president clearly willing to ask for help from foreign governments, and perhaps the most flagrant foul the weekend. The president using his Twitter account to harass a witness in the obstruction of Justice investigation that witness, former White House counsel, Don again, he's been subpoenaed by congress and instructed by the White House to defy that subpoena. One. Trump struck his stooge attorney general investigate his enemies of this case. Joe Biden to Rudy Guliani trip to you Quyen. That's also about Biden, three harassment and intimidation of a key witness, Don Mcgann era go even more. Obstruction of Justice. Let's take them one at a time first Rudy Guliani after two years of denying colluded with a foreign country to influence the two thousand sixteen election to benefit them team Trump at the end of last week announced publicly that they were going to collude with a foreign country in an attempt to influence the twenty twenty election to benefit them. You can't make this stuff up folks. And the part of the story is to use one of you Trump supporters favourite terms. It's a nothing burger. Here's the real story. And as you might imagine as a whole lot more nuance than detailed than how Trump's they run propaganda media is portraying. It Joe Biden's, son. Hunter sits or sat on the board of Ukrainian, energy company called barista in an advisory capacity beginning in two thousand fourteen and the story is gonna get convoluted votes with a lot of foreign sounding names, try and follow. I know it's hard barista is owned by one Makola guest who was close to then Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych when Yanacocha JR was ousted, the owner of Burris MMA, Shaw Caskey faced a variety of corruption related investigations involving his business in two thousand fifteen Ukraine's newly appointed. Prosecutor General Viktor Shokhin inherited some of the investigations into Burris and its own schlock Caskey. The problem was this Shokhin was close to ousted President, Yanukovych and didn't prosecute anyone or anything of significance in an attempt to protect his old boss. It was the Obama administration's position that Shokhin wasn't doing enough to curb official corruption and was just wasting time going after his old bosses perceived enemies sound familiar. Joe Biden delivered the Obama administration's of fischel message to the new Ukrainian president that Shokhin should be removed or a proposed payment of a billion dollars to Ukraine would be withheld Shokhin was removed. And this is where trumps state run propaganda media, and now Rudy Guliani say the conflict arises. They're saying by leaned on this prosecute to protect his son. That is a lie by the sun wasn't under investigation for anything. Nor was he even suspected of doing anything wrong, it was the owner of the company on whose board hunter, by the set that was under investigation investigation add to that, according to the tally Casco, who had been Shokhin's deputy overseeing international cooperation, the investigation into Burris MMA and its owner Caskey had been over or at least doormat for least one year before Biden delivered the Obama administration's recommendation that he should be replaced. Cosco also said there was no pressure from Biden or anyone in the US to close any cases against Joseph Caskey or his company barista. Now, does this. Situation present itself as a possibility for a conflict of interest. Yeah, but the appearance of a conflict doesn't necessarily translate into their actually being one. It was the general consensus among though, west that this prosecutor Victor Shokhin was a corrupt hold over from the Yanukovych regime, and needed to go the same route, as former boss. That was also the Obama administration's official position. And by as vice president was the messenger. There is absolutely zero evidence and in the real world evidence Trump's politically convenience conspiracy theories zero evidence that will Joe Biden did was on behalf of the sun. And in all honesty for you. Trump supporters to say dozen bother you that Donald Trump was the Goshi aiding with an enemy country to build a hotel in that enemy country knowing that enemy. Country was attacking our democracy in order to influence our election in his favor and lying to the American people, and telling them he was not negotiating with that enemy country while giving aid and comfort to that enemy country to continue interfering in our election by denying. They were interfering. And instead, trying to tack Joe Biden over this Ukrainian non story that's as stupid and hypocritical and analogous to you calling Joe Biden creepy. Uncle joe. You don't have any more standing two point your fingers at Biden for this Ukraine issue. Then you do to call him creepy. Uncle joe. Again, you've criticizing a man who grabs women by their shoulders and ignoring a child who grabs women between their legs just criticizing a man who delivered his administration's position to an ally. While knowing traitor. Who was secretly negotiating with an enemy knowing that enemy was interfering in our election, while at the same time lying to the American people. If you're looking for a couple of textbook examples of false equivalences, these two are likely white new, the top of the list, and before we move on that you Miller, former chief spokesperson for the department of Justice, he made one of the best observations. I've heard this is so good. I was angry after I heard that I hadn't thought of it first and it really exposes the rampant, wreaking Republican hypocrisy of Trump complaining that he was bide on listen. Let's pretend that all Trump's complaints about the investigation into him or true. That's pretend that that Barack Obama did order this investigation into him. What is his complaint under Trump's own conception of how the Justice department auto operate it exists to go after your vista kill investigations into you? So if Trump really believes that's the way the Justice department operates and it wasn't until now and he shouldn't actually have any complaint about it investigating him during the campaign. Boom, just blown an underlying point of what matches said, is this, that does nothing more than per junction from Donald Trump? He has stated publicly that he thinks it's okay for a president to investigate an imprison his political enemies and human nature being what it is because he believes that he thinks everybody does, and you wanna want some even scarier Trump projection on. Oh vendor. Twenty nine two thousand eleven Trump tweeted this, quote in order to get re-elected, Barack Obama will start a war with Iran, and quote the back to Rudy Guliani from moment. I was going to Ukraine, then he wasn't going according to him for conspiratorial reasons, which will get to momentarily, but listen to this garbled explanation as to why he was going in the first place delivered where else on FOX noise and listen to this, I bit after Guliani and everybody in Trump's orbit. And every host in Trump state run propaganda, media telling you for two years. Collusion wasn't a crime. Listen to what Rudy says. I mean, the reality is that I'm not I wasn't going there to encourage them to start an investigation. They haven't investigation. They have an investigation of how you cranny and help the DNC and Hillary operatives to get some.

"Joe Biden, and he son hunter. Apparently, according to Clinton veterans, they say attacks on on hunter, Biden are giving them painful flashbacks of 2016, president Donald Trump's political allies and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani begun mobilizing to cast legal cloud over Joe Biden demanding that the Justice department should open investigation that could ensnare the former vice president as he launches his twenty twenty presidential bid Biden's conflicts are two apparent to be ignored. And we should investigate them. Quickly said Rudy Giuliani. Yeah. He's he's right on that one. We should have been doing this a long time ago not just because he's a presidential candidate. But because Joe Biden is absolutely corrupt. He is corrupt as the Clintons ever were there. Cut from the same cloth. They come from the same school. The suggestion of illegal behavior and the specter of putting a political opponent behind bars sounded familiar to some senior campaign ads Hillary Clinton who believe Trump and his allies are running a version of their crooked Hillary playbook from 2016, you know, you don't have to as we have seen. Ted Cruz is not a liar, but he got lion Ted moniker. And there is no way to beat that. Usually, you earn your nicknames usually have to, you know, like low energy jab earned that one big year in that pretty low energy. Yeah. Pretty low energy. Crooked. Hillary she earned that one. I mean decades in office earning that one generally speaking, the nickname thing or these big pushes flip flop or for John Kerry only work when they reinforce something that people already kinda believe, right, right? These new like a scandal about corruption especially that late in the presidential race really hurt Hillary because people already believe she was corrupting. And they saw Jesus another one of these. We're gonna have to deal with this the entire time. Forget it. I'm going the other direction, and that seemed to have been the difference in the election. By multiple studies that have looked back at it. So that change that ten days before the election people reinforcing yet, again, how corrupt this woman was not helpful to her or her campaign. So this is from politico the attacks on Biden pivot off the lucrative business activities of his son hunter during the Obama administration. Most notably hunters work on the board of Ukrainian energy company. Burris MMA holdings as part of a long campaign to pressure Ukraine to combat corruption in twenty fifteen and sixteen then vice president Biden leveraged financial aid to the country in order to persuade the government to fire the country's top prosecutor the prosecutor had been investigating Burris my at the time. Now when you see a lucrative business deal. You know, a lucrative business deal might be like. Hundred dollars thousand dollars quarter of a million dollars. That's a lot for a business deal Glen. Yeah. A million. Can you imagine a million dollar business deal? That's a lucrative. You'll in Ukraine. I think he got one point five million dollars a million in a half dollars for a business deal. That's a lot of money Glenn. I don't know. Do you have your facts straight on that one? I I. Jay have dollars. You can't possibly have that one lockdown. Well in China. It was a billion and a half. Hello. What is said in a billion and a half dollars? That was just one of that was one of the two countries one of the two countries. So in the problem with Ukrainian energy company is the Burris Sma. It was was owned by thugs owned by this really really corrupt oligarch who also had been taking money from the United States government. And he lost it someplace he lost it. It was crazy. It happens. Sometimes that was a billion dollars. But it was he don't he doesn't remember what will he remembers putting into the Bank, but he also owned the Bank, and it was kind of money laundering Bank. But he swears the last time he saw it. It was in that Bank that was your tax dollars. Then barista also was under investigation by the FBI for trying to get our nuclear secrets from Americans in our nuclear weapons program. Well, several of them went to jail. So. Barista hundred Biden is doing business with barista. He's on their board of directors getting paid by them at this time. So the attorney general comes in and their version of the attorney general, and he starts looking at barista. Well, he's he is corrupt and he's looking into a lot of different things. So Joe Biden coup incidentally, comes over and says, hey, I'm not going to give you any of this American aid, which they had to have or the country would have collapsed. I'm not gonna give you any of this aid unless you fire that guy. Now was the guy corrupt ES? Did they pick up after he left the the investigation into barista know why? Well, those in the in the government now say it was because of Joe Biden's pressure because he didn't want his son involved in any of this. So is there anything wrong with that? Well, it looks pretty bad. And then his other very lucrative deal was one point five billion dollars of Chinese money and not not like Chinese like, hey, here's hop ching. And his his Bank account. It was from the government of China one point five, and what did hunter Biden's son help them do by an American company that had technology that can be used in stealth. And by the way, this this company that he's representing in China. Also was one that was trying to get our stealth secrets did and then built their own stealth plane. That's the company that was paying hunter Biden or hunter Biden was buying in with Chinese money. And then he said, hey, well, we can we can really help your new stealth plane if we buy this American company. It's amazing. And the article about it is also fascinating because you can see number one. They see how effective these attacks are number two. They're trying to get out of head of it. They're trying to basically say this is not real we want you to know. It's not real before it starts picking up steam this. Of course, doesn't work in the modern age, right? Like people are going to find the truth in your way. I think the other part that's interesting about it is one of the things that are highly critical of is the very occasional time a mainstream publication picked up on the Clinton accusations. They cite sixty minutes in the story. They cite New York Times in the story both of which did do some coverage of Clinton cash and all of the corruption around the Clintons, and they did that with all of their mainstream media, peer reviewed type of attitude. They looked at it. They took. I'm sure started very skeptically with it. But came to fact that yeah, this stuff actually did happen. And here the accusations. And here's how laid out you gotta make your own decision. They didn't have about it. But they did report it, and that gave it quote, unquote credibility, and what they're warning on in the article was it political. And what they're warning on kind of in the article is, hey, New York Times this time, they'll pick it up. Hey, sixty minutes, this time don't fall down this. Because look what we cost us last time. You went after these Peter Schweitzer claims and what happened. Well, Donald Trump won you want that to happen again. It's almost like a warning to these mainstream media sources not to go down this road. And the issue here is that the information is accurate. You know, it's not just Peter Schweitzer. It's also John Solomon who works at the hill. Now has been was an AP in Washington Post reporter for twenty years a man who has no problems with credibility as a journalist. And yet here we are. They're trying to say they're trying to warn their colleagues guys don't do this. Because you're going to hurt the cause that's not what journalism supposed to be the times has making itself. An accomplice to a scheme whereby Trump likely intends to put his potential democratic opponent under federal investigation for partisan reasons. No, no. It's not partisan reasons. This needs to be investigated hundred Biden's international business dealings from China to Ukraine deserve scrutiny says Peter Sweitzer, a friend of this program. The left is also blamed shifting on a story we've covered extensively on television, the Biden families sketchy ties to the crane. It is true. His sketchy ties to the crane are really quite frightening because you see the possibility of a a government official in rich ING his family by using your tax dollars and the cloud of the United States and the same thing in China. And if we don't get a handle on our presidents and our elected officials than I think personally, this has happened on both sides of the aisle, I could be wrong, but there's just nobody looking into it. And that's what puzzles me. Is really does. No one care about this on Capitol Hill or are too. Many people dirty from it. And my guess is too. Many people are dirty. But if we don't stop our presidents, vice presidents are, you know, John Kerry was the secretary of state his son was the business partner in the China deal. His son was John Kerry was the secretary of state at the time. So Joe Biden, the vice president who was put in charge of the China deal along with John Kerry, their two sons travel at the same time that they're trying to do deals with China. For political purposes for the United States. The the sons are both meeting with the Chinese government about a one point five billion dollar investment in their firm. Wow. That's incidental that doesn't deserve. A look see. Of.

"Joe Biden and his son hunter. Apparently, according to Clinton veterans, they say attacks on hunter, Biden are giving them painful flashbacks of 2016, president Donald Trump's political allies and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani have begun mobilizing the cast legal cloud over Joe Biden demanding that the Justice department should open investigation that could ensnare the former vice president as he launches his twenty twenty presidential bid Biden's conflicts are two apparent to be ignored. And we should investigate them. Quickly said Rudy Giuliani. Yeah. He's he's right on that one. We should have been doing this a long time ago not just because he's a presidential candidate. But because Joe Biden is absolutely corrupt. He is corrupt as the Clintons ever were there. Cut from the same cloth. They come from the same school. The suggestion of a legal behavior and the specter of putting a political opponent behind bars sounded familiar to some senior campaign ads to Hillary Clinton who believe Trump and his allies are running a version of their crooked Hillary playbook from 2016, you know, you don't have to as we have seen. Ted Cruz is not a liar. But he got lying. Ted monica. And there was no way to to beat that. Usually, you earn your nicknames usually have to, you know, like low energy jab earned that one big ear and that pretty low energy. Yeah. Pretty low energy. Crooked. Hillary she earned that one. I mean decades in office earning that one generally speaking, the nickname thing or these big pushes flip-flop per for John Kerry only work when they reinforce something that people already kinda believe, right, right? So these new like a scandal about corruption especially that late in the presidential race really hurt Hillary because people already believe she was corrupting. And they saw Jesus another one of these. We're going to have to deal with us the entire time. Forget it. I'm going the other direction, and that seemed to have been the difference in the election. You know by multiple studies that have looked back at it. So that change that, you know, ten days before the election people reinforcing yet, again, how corrupt this woman was not helpful to her or her campaign. So this is from politico the attacks on Biden pivot off the lucrative business activities of his son hunter during the Obama administration. Most notably hunters work on the board of Ukrainian energy company. Burris MMA holdings as part of a long campaign to pressure Ukraine to combat corruption in twenty fifteen and sixteen then vice president Biden leveraged financial aid to the country in order to persuade the government to fire the country's top prosecutor the prosecutor had been investigating Burris my at the time. Now when you say a lucrative business deal. You know, a lucrative business deal might be like. Hundred dollars thousand dollars quarter of a million dollars. That's a lot for a business deal Glen. Yeah. What about a million? Can you imagine a million dollar business deal? That's a lucrative. You'll in Ukraine. I think he got one point five million dollars a million and a half dollars for a business deal. That's a lot of money Glenn. I don't know you have your facts straight on that one. I I. I have dollars you can't possibly have that one lockdown. Well in China. It was a billion and a half. Hello. This is what is said in a billion and a half dollars. That was just one of this country one of the two countries one of the two countries. So in the problem with Ukrainian energy company is the Burris Ma it was was owned by thugs owned by this really really corrupt oligarch who also had been taking money from the United States government. And he lost it someplace he lost it. It was crazy. Happens sometimes that was a billion dollars. But it was he don't he doesn't remember what will you remembers putting into the Bank, but he also owned the Bank, and it was kind of money laundering Bank. But he wears the last time he saw it. It was in that Bank that was your tax dollars. Then barista also was under investigation by the FBI for trying to get our nuclear secrets from Americans in our nuclear weapons program. Well, several of them went to jail so Burris my hundred Biden is doing business with barista. He's on their board of directors getting paid by them at this time. So the attorney general comes in and their version of the attorney general, and he starts looking at barista. Well, he's he is corrupt and he's looking into a lot of different things. So Joe Biden coup incidentally, comes over and says, hey, I'm not going to give you any of this American aid, which they had to have or the country would have collapsed. I'm not going to give you any of this aid unless you fire that guy. Now was the guy corrupt. Yes. Did they pick up after he left the the investigation into Burris? Ma know why? Well, those in the in the government now say it was because of Joe Biden's pressure because he didn't want his son involved in any of this. So is there anything wrong with that? Well, it looks pretty bad. And then his other very lucrative deal was one point five billion dollars of Chinese money and not not like Chinese like, hey, here's you know.

"I'll try to get the episode paula's pretty good with that. Maybe throw it up on the screen where I covered in depth this scandal. But I wanna hit it quickly before we move on. Because there were going to be in a world of trouble here. Joe Biden and his son hunter are neck deep in a corruption scandal in Ukraine that I promise you is not going to go away. Here's the down and dirty in the lead. Joe Biden's, son? Hunter was hired to work for a natural gas company in Ukraine. Call Burris MMA right after a very significant event related to Ukraine in Joe Biden's, vice-presidency put up on the screen that headline from the Washington Post. I want to show you in missile pretty much. Explain him Washington Post article by Scott Wilson dated pay attention to the date is very important, April twenty first twenty fourteen. Here's the headline Biden arrives in Ukraine to show us. Support is crisis with Russia continues. Remember the date April twenty first twenty fourteen. Now, flip to the New York Times article about Joe Biden's, son hunter and his suspicious appointment. He has no natural gas experience at all to a natural gas company in Ukraine that had some dealings of the cash for job. One hundred nine was making a lot of money. This is from the New York Times headline Joe, Biden, his son and the case against Ukrainian oligarchy. Remember the dates here hunter Biden forty five a former Washington lobbyist. Join the beryllium aboard. That's the Ukrainian gas company in April twenty four teen that month is part of an investigation of money laundering. British officials froze London Bank accounts containing twenty three million that allegedly belonged to Mr. this low low low cheifs ski sorry, I'm saying his name who is one of the guys associated with the company. Joe Biden visits Ukraine, April twenty fourteen hundred by April twenty fourteen gets a lucrative appointment to abort and Brisbane Biden's, travels Brisbane appointment for hunter. Now, you may say, oh, well, Dan. That's just one big coincidence and coincidences do happen. I would agree with you and say that maybe a big Winky Dink. If you cranny and officials were not currently investigating the transfer of large sums of money to hunter, Biden and companies he controls through Barisno under very suspicious circumstances. And if they weren't a credible allegation out there by other Ukrainian lawmakers that the investigation into the transfer of said bunnies to Joe Biden's kid. If that investigation where it being suppressed we have the. Itself. Yes. You do you do you do? Oh, boy, folks, this is going to be the story of the twenty twenty and by the way. I hate to keep plugging it. But in putting a lot of work into it. And I'm sorry to bother you with it. But my second book exonerated, the failed takedown of President Donald Trump by the swamp. It's vowed out for preorder now on Amazon. Hammers. This topic is this my second book is going to become a big talking point for Joe Biden gave for the job but people line against Joe, but because it hammers among this. I've got some killer information in there. In other words, folks, there's an investigation into the transfer of money and this appointment this suspicious appointment onto the beryllium aboard one hundred Biden's kid. There's credible allegations out there in the media by sources of mine and others that there were pressured by US officials to make this investigation. Go away into hunter Biden Joe Biden's, kid. This is going to be a huge deal. This Ukrainian thing I promise you is not going to go away. Okay. I got one more. I'm going to come back and get to there is some upside for Biden, which I'll get to. And I only do it not to give them hints. But so you understand how yes he's very weak..

"The producer of a video. Everybody needs to see a documentary called the creepy line. But also, the author of a book called secret empires. It just came out in paperback. And I can't recommend it highly enough. Peter Sweitzer is is on with us. Peter you brought up a name that. I thought was interesting Tony Podesta. Yeah. Tony's the guy who had this big firm that was involved with the what was it the focus GPS because. Yes. Fusion GPS fusion GPS and his firm was involved as soon as that story broke. He quit shut it all down and walked away. And I thought, wow, what it what was that all about? Manafort's mistake was he elevated himself? He he could have gotten away with it. If he wouldn't have gone right into the spotlight and said dig may is that what Tony did the he did the opposite. Do you think why why what happened to Tony Podesta? That's a great question. Yes. And I think you make a very important point here. And that is that a lot of this stuff that has gone on that now Manfred has been charged with and by the way, I believe should have been charged do a while ago involved something called the foreign agents registration actor faira. And this is a law that the department of Justice enforces, and it essentially says if you are a lobbyist or somebody in the United States, and you are representing are working for a foreign government or a foreign government connected entity. You are required to file very detailed reports with the department of Justice and anybody out there in the audience can can. Look fair, and you can look at filings. And so if you're doing work for the cranium government or a company connected to the Ukrainian government, you owe to describe how much you're being paid and exactly who you're meeting with including journalists because you're doing the bidding for a foreign government. Well, Paul Manford was bought up on on failing to file Phero reports which he didn't do interestingly enough when Paul Manafort became under investigation. What did pony Tony Podesta in his firm? Do they retroactively filed seventeen forms with faira declaring their work for foreign entities? I mean, in other words, they hadn't been doing this. They realize that the game was up for math for that. He was in the gun sights. So they tried to cover their tracks. By filing these seventeen Phero reports on other foreign government work, and this is one of the big unwritten rules or secrets of lobbying Washington DC people. Have been skirting these rules for years. So Tony Podesta was involved in this the other lobbying firms firms that are on the Republican side firms that on the democrat side, and it's a huge problem has not been enforced, and my hope is that one of things one of the things that comes out of the Manafort case is that somebody's lobbyists will be looking over their shoulder and saying we better be filing those farewell reports because otherwise we could end up in somebody's gunsights. So here's the problem as I see it with this Joe Biden case is if it is widespread that this is happening. Nobody wants to nobody wants this to be a story. Everybody wants this to go away that that's exactly right. And here's the other thing. I mean, you gotta give grudgingly the Biden some credit because what they did was, you know, hundred Biden, you know, will claim he's not doing any work for a foreign government. He's just on the payroll of a highly corrupt energy. The company that is controlled by some very nasty oligarchs. Same thing in China. What does he do with it? That's a good question. And and it is impossible for me to believe first of all that his father didn't know about this. We know when I talk about this secret empires that they had meetings in the White House based on the White House visitor logs, we know in the case of China that hunter Biden actually flew with his dad on air force to to close that billion dollar private equity deal with the Chinese government. And what hundred Biden would say as well. I'm not representing the Chinese government. I'm just doing an equity deal with them. The problem is like with Ukrainian deal. Everybody knows the gig is up because he has no background in private equity. He has no background in Ukrainians, no background in energy policy. This is a payoff clear, and there's no other plausible explanation as to why he's getting paid. And what would the payoff be for? What what what does what does Burris MMA need? Need from us. Well, I think Burris Mel for example, was looking for loans and grants from the United States that were designed to help Ukraine become energy independence. And the reason was of course, that they were very dependent on Russian national gaffes. I think it's a great idea to help make them energy independent. But where that money went who got those loans and grants would be determined by the United States. And again, Joe Biden the buck stops with Joe Biden as it related to US policy towards Ukraine. The second thing I think is that, you know, foreign governments kind of have a retainer model. It may not be an exact quid pro quo where we're gonna pay you you need to do this for us. It gives you access, and if you can go to the vice president's son to whom he had mitts, he's very very close to they travelled together all the time, and you need him to whisper something into his ear that has enormous value. And it's not a quid pro quo. But as far as I'm concerned, it is still a bribe because you are paying for access and you paying for beneficial policies. Peter is always good to talk to you. Thank you so much. We're going to be following this story because I think this is forget about is smelling hair. This is the real problem with Joe Biden corruption, it seems to the bone and somebody needs to investigate it. You can find all of this information in secret empires. It's a paperback out now by Peter Sweitzer more next hour with one of the.

"Yeah. Man. Gets better. So Joe Biden, Joe Biden also has an interest in Ukraine Joe Biden pops into visit the Ukrainians on April fourteenth of twenty fourteen right in April twenty four visits. Ukraine could be neatly right after he visits Ukraine, Joe where he wants to talk about Ukrainian energy independence from Russia. His son hunter, yes. Same guy. Same guy. Same guy. Remember the Clinton jokes golfing? You hit a bad shot a good ship. Bill Clinton, we use the Gulf of Mexico. Same guy. Same guy. Same guy hunter Biden right after this April twenty fourteen visit by his dad, the vice president to Ukraine to talk about energy independence from the Russians by the Ukrainians. Conveniently son gets appointed to the board of the largest natural gas company in Ukraine. Barack Obama, isn't that convenient? That's amazing. How did that happen? Well, boom is right. So we joins Barisno April of twenty fourteen right after the visit just like all of these Chinese business ventures hunter, Biden seems to be involvement seemed to correspond exactly to meetings is dad has had with Chinese officials. Incredible. How that happens and how nobody in the mainstream media seems even remotely interested in lunch Puckett, Joe and his connections. Let's talk about old lunch bucket. Now, it gets better. Now, remember, folks. Peru's MMA, one of their key officials is a former ecology minister under a guy a unique vich who was the head of government in Ukraine who was an ally. Manafort, follow me, it's a little confusing. The lead is this Biden goes to Ukraine talks about energy independence. His son gets a spot on an energy company and Ukraine. Promoting Ukrainian energy independence, a natural gas company. But the details are reporting here. Paul Manafort subject to the dossier. Got MSA manafort's good guy or anything like that. But don't get me wrong. I'm not defending Manafort at all in this. But Manafort is working for a pro Russian Ukrainian head of state you bitch. You nuke is an enemy of the Obama administration. So the Obama administration Joe sees Manafort is an enemy to Manafort is a subject from day one. Everybody knows it. That's why Alexandra Chalupa DNC targets Manafort conveniently Manafort shows up in the Trump orbit next thing. You know, Trump comes the subject of this big huge spying thing, which I think was going on for a long time. Now, the company the company Burris MMA, one of the board members on that one of the heads of that company is now an enemy of you knew. He was a former government minister under him. He leaves. He's an enemy them. He then hires? They hire Biden's kids who work for Barack Obama Parisa the company hunter Biden gets aboard spot on and this big nice cushy position. Conveniently in two thousand seventeen right after presidential the presidential election signs. A cooperation agreement with the Atlantic Council member the Atlantic Council all the board. Members of the Atlantic Council, but many of them have intimate roles in the spy gate scandal. The Atlantic Council one of their advisers on the technology side Demitrio para vich runs crowd strike, which is the company that analyzed the DNC computers Evelyn Farkas on the Atlantic Council. The woman who shows up at MSNBC after the election and says how we had all this information on Trump and the Russians we tell people how we got it. Remember that now who funds the Atlantic Council? The Atlantic council's funded by Viktor Pinchuk, Viktor Pinchuk. Our Ukrainian another enormous donor to the Clinton foundation, the Clinton foundation he's donated between ten and twenty five million dollars to the Clinton foundation. He funds the Atlantic Council that right after the election. I believe in an effort to try to cozy up to the Trump administration. Afterwards. Burris MMA signs, a cooperation agreement with the Atlantic Council because there were some members of that have government influence, and I think they're trying to make a lot of this stuff go away because they thought Hillary Clinton would be the president, and they're barista's connections to Biden would become a big deal. If Hillary wasn't elected, you get my point. Prisms trying to make this go away beryllium assigns with the Atlantic Council. All these former government officials on it because it'd be fair. There are some Republican connected. People on that Atlantic Council board as well. But the bed council is funded by Pinscher Pinchuk..
