Hi doctor how are you. Good morning how are you. Thank you so much for speaking out whether you're right or wrong speaking out about the things that you believe in and And not bowing to the pressure of this new weird science rule that we just don't question authority Let me Let me talk to you about the The vaccines I get so much heat. Because i've had covid. I'm not interested in getting the vaccine on not an anti vaccine right. I don't have a problem with the vaccine But i know my kids are young going to give it to them And because. I don't think it's i. I think there's too many questions out there about something that is brand new that we've not had you know trials on if they needed by my parents i would give it to my parents. I encouraged my parents to take it. If i were a little older and more frail i would take it. I'm called insane for having those standards.

"That's why sixty percent of americans are skeptical of the government s official cove nineteen numbers about twenty five percent of likely. Us voters have indicated. They don't plan on getting the covid. Nineteen vaccine why. Because we don't really feel like we've had anything that was true. We we see other things that are bad like this but this isn't the bhubaneshwar plague. And because we have so overreacted. For such a long time. It was fine to overreact for the first month two months but once we hit some we were all kind of looking at it going. Okay i think we know what we have here. And it's not as bad as everybody said and everybody has made you know a foul ci into this golden calf that we're supposed to just you know worship now if the government doesn't have anything going for it on covid nineteen i mean if they screwed it up this badly on cove in nineteen all of the all of the so called experts. It got so much so wrong. Is there a possibility that they don't have it right. Other places take for example ninety four percent of professional wall street stockbrokers are bullish looking at us stocks over the next twelve months and not to be outdone but retail investors mom and pop investors. Like you and me are equally committed with nine point. Eight long bets for every one short bet. That's ninety eight percent of the people think this is going to be great. It's going to be a boom usually when everyone's in the boat it's bad especially when the stragglers like you and me we start to guam on so wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. We just experienced the highest ranked and most powerful government officials. We experience that the got almost everything wrong with covid nineteen wrong diagnosis of how deadly it was wrong. Treatment and face masks lockdown wrong policies on medical treatments not protecting our older population with true quarantines for those most vulnerable but when it comes to the economy and stocks and money money printing. We don't really talk about janet. Yellen drome powell joe biden. Do they have the slightest idea of what they're doing when they are telling us they're doing things that have never been done before. The i just think that's a problem. Because you're you're dealing with the money that we all have our savings account. Anything that you saved could be gone because they're trying something we've never done before now. Covid was nineteen. The covid nineteen was something we'd never seen in our lifetimes and look at what the government did. I got news for you. No one is ever seen. What's coming in our global financial system either sixty four listen to these numbers. Sixty four percent of all of the new currency created across the entire world in the past twelve months has been. Us dollars sixty four percent. The previous one year high was fourteen percent of all currency was us dollars. Sixty four percent retail investors made twenty seven percent of all. us stock trades in q. One ten years ago retail investors accounted for only five percent of total stock traits. So that means if it crashes. You're involved. The fed has printed currency to buy two point five trillion dollars in new government bonds plus nearly a trillion in corporate bonds and etf's prior to the year. Two thousand twenty. The federal reserve had never bought any of those they had never purchased any of those things ever and all so we have no idea what's going on with the stock market every indication shows. Us stocks are historically overvalued compared to earnings in corporate revenues there is no precedent ever for the fed printing more than twenty five percent worth of gdp in new currency and using it to prop up the government and the entire financial sector. Now much like the lockdowns and the masks and the closed schools. This is just a live experiment that we're just doing and you're the guinea pig effective zero rate interest for new debt trillions in new currency digitally printed in used to buy bonds stocks keeping companies. That uncle sam wants to keep afloat afloat and keeping uncle sam afloat stocks blown up the largest asset bubble in human history. But don't worry the authorities have this. They have it you know fao. She may be taking punches now. But i expect a couple of years from now. It's going to be powell and yellen assuming that they have the best intentions. We shouldn't assume they know what they're doing or that. They actually have a plan. You or i would agree with see the phenomenon that i wanna take from. Kovic is the potent directors fallacy. And i'd like to take that. Because we have recognized it as a fallacy that are directors knew exactly what to do and this comes from a time of economic expansion or we win wars whatever and people are like they know what they're doing but once there's trouble we really see they don't know it's i like to call it the wizard of oz effect. Don't pay attention to the man behind. The powell. yellen vouch -i biden. They're all behind the curtain and they're just pulling levers and knobs they have absolutely no idea what the hell they're doing and they hope that it works out until dorothy arrives because of the end of the day we're all going to find out there.

"And he's in the fbi says well it's it's suicide by cop and the republicans are just dumbstruck. I mean they. They said what i mean. They literally go. What and they say. Look if you want to commit suicide by cop you you point a gun at police and that will usually do the trick You don't go attack republican members of the house Besides there was a there was a small capital police. Detail at the The practice day. Because steve scalise house whip republican whip was a member of the house leadership so he had a security detail. They were in plain clothes. They were an unmarked car. The shooter did not know they were there. This was not suicide cop. There's simply no way in the world. It suicide by cop. One interesting thing is republicans are often pretty discrete about these things. They didn't leak it. We didn't hear this was. This was the the fbi told him that suicide by cop in november of twenty seven thirteen and we just found it out because one of those republicans brad wind strip. Who was there that day and play a heroine role Revealed it in a hearing a week and a half ago at the house intelligence committee and he revealed it because he had christopher wray the fbi director in front of him So he told him about all this stuff and you know what raised for first response was well. I wasn't director then fine. You weren't director them but the fbi did this and so winstrom Demanded that the f. b. i. Explain to them. What evidentiary an analytical process. It went through to determine that this was a suicide by cop as opposed to what clearly was a domestic terror attack. So here's why this is really relevant. They said that. Brian sick nick was killed by the capital riots. They say this is the worst thing that's ever happened And they're obsessed over all. This sydney did not die from his At the capitol. He died of a stroke the next day in the hospital. So they're trying to make this into really and alexandria kind of moment where it wasn't. It was a horrible horrible moment but it wasn't something where they were going in and trying to kill everybody at least seriously like this guy was could ben and was horrible in and of itself but the media and the fbi seem so focussed on only things that come from the right that i am I don't trust the fbi anymore. And that is that saying somethin' byron. I've always trusted the fbi and and And the government. I mean you know. I've i've been skeptical. You know and c. Let me see all the evidence. But i don't trust them in all anymore. I think that is one of the saddest results the last five years. And i think you're exactly right first of all. I think maybe for your listeners. We should say there are lots of parts of the fbi that do old fashioned crime-fighting they search for murderers. They searched for bank robbers. They they search for all sorts of really bad people and that sort of rank and file. Fbi work is something we should all be. Glad for but there was Uh a managerial elite at the top of the fbi. That had become incredibly politicized. i mean they. They actually had during the twenty sixteen election. They had both major party Candidates under investigation. I think there's something wrong with that right there But certainly when we discovered what they did with the dossier the steele dossier in which the fbi actually wanted to hire christopher steele to do his anti-trump research for them in the last month of the twenty sixteen campaign absolutely inexcusable. They only had to sort of cut him loose because he was breaking their policy by talking to the press because all steel wanted to do was expose trump and tried to defeat him in twenty sixteen and even when the fbi had to cut him loose they maintained a backchannel to him and continued to get what we now know. Where these entirely false dossier reports and then there was the sandbagging of Of trump. That i mentioned earlier. The whole we know about you and those hookers in moscow thing and then there was the michael flynn case. I mean so i think there's plenty of reason to not trust the leadership of the other side. There's the physical. Are we ever going to get a final report. Are we ever going to see the final report on any of this. Do you think well there is no final report on this whole thing. Everybody has to piece together as best they can from. What is out there. We we know there really is a door investigation. I know a lot of conservatives some completely lost faith or hoping that and think it's going to be nothing but there are some people in washington who Who you would all trust. I think Who still thinks that. Durham is gonna come up with some interesting stuff. But it's everything is just a part of the picture you have to kind of put it together. yourself but Clearly the fastest thing in which The fbi misrepresented the evidence. In order to wiretap a former low level trump campaign aide carter page Because that would be a doorway into the larger trump campaign has called because carter page was the most important person in the world. It was because that would open a door into the trump campaign which they were investigating during the campaign. if if you're not reading the washington examiner and following byron york.

"But doing it at the expense of our number one ally in the region israel You know we're bombing The middle east again after it was sort of trying to end the endless wars all of these things that are so popular with the american public Not so much with the washington d. establishment and sort of the military industrial complex. Sort of use the old fashioned term there but they're reversing one of the most successful foreign policy missions ever and they've done so in one hundred days it's it's it's truly impressive. I grossly underestimated joe biden's ability to screw things up. I knew it would be bad. I didn't realize it would be this bad. I didn't know it would be this fast. I figured it would be bad but not this fast. I mean look what happened on the border and you know nobody cares about the cages. You know nobody cares about the policies. He's reversing himself in some cases where he's going back and doing exactly what your father did. But it's a mess down there. It's an absolute mess in days. He created that correct and they're wondering how they're running around saying oh. How did this happen when you give someone you offer someone everything for free. You're going to get free. Healthcare free education. This was a welcome ticket. You know they get to give kamala harris book Two children at the border. Imagine someone into the the also use continuous. It's not just in our public schools anymore. it's now at the border in joe biden's cages. This stuff never ends and yet again. If it was a trump administration official people would be losing their minds. It would drive you a multiple week. Long new cycle when joe biden. Does it if he gets a total pass and they don't even discuss these things. I mean you know. They're no longer cages. They were only cages for the four years between The obama administration and the biden administration before and after that or your period of time there migrant facilities Were there helping children. I mean it's absolutely insane and you know what's scary isn't it feels like the american public while there are some and probably many of your listeners. Get it so many are still influenced by a mainstream media that has shown to be nothing. But i mean there's literally there's nothing genuine honest or real about today's mainstream media and yet many americans still don't see that so tomorrow joe biden is going to get up and i don't know how they're gonna keep him awakened till nine o'clock at night but he's going to get up and he's in speak usually. This is when a president will say you know he'll spell out big ideas and ask for money in one hundred days. He has already put in legislation over ten trillion. Dollars in spending. Wh- i don't know how much more you can ask for But you know not that. They asked us for it. I mean they should just do this speech at the fed.

He wants to kill okay and so he does it and there's absolutely no doubt and he's big bernie sanders supporter for what it's worth. He's there's no doubt that he attacks these members of congress because there are republicans. It was a clear act of violent politically motivated domestic terrorism. And if you remember even at that time the fbi was telling us that the greatest threat to our national security was violent domestic terrorism. Okay so fbi. Obviously hodgkinson has killed at the scene. So there's no manhunt but they begin investigating this Looking into hodgkin's and the shooting is in June and in november.

Legal analysis of Trump impeachment trial
"To the program. Byron York He's the chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner. He's a Fox news contributor in his capacity. The Examiner, he writes the Daily memo. Which is a newsletter. Available each day. He's also author of the book Obsession Inside the Washington Establishments. Never ending War on Trump, Byron. Good to Have you back. Good. Good to Be Here, guys. Thanks very much, Yes, that you've got a lot going on, obviously. And in your latest daily Nemo, you dive into some of these legal arguments and they're really in some ways process arguments. From various Republicans, particularly in the Senate about the upcoming impeachment trial. We know that the impeachment article being transferred over the Senate today with a start date on the trial. February the ninth, so a bit of a delay there, which is what some of the Republicans have been asking for. They've gotten it before we get into some of the other ancillary questions and details about the trial. It seems like and this is based on your reporting. What a fair amount of the Republican opposition to a conviction here in this impeachment trial will be rooted in the question of whether or not it's even appropriate or permissible. To host a trial like this against an official who's no longer in office. Walk us through some of the details and some of the relevant history on this. Well, there's there's been a big debate before Donald Trump River appeared on the scene. There was a big debate over whether a former official can be impeached and tried and removed from office. OK, so the The Constitution, says. Quote Article two section for the president, Vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed on from office on impeachment for and conviction of treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. So we hear we've heard that Ah lot and Republicans. In this case we're going to say Well when it says the president shall be removed. That means the president. There's only one of them at a time, and Donald Trump is not the president. Besides removal. The you know an impeachment is the Constitution's main methods for removing a president who's committed some sort of serious misconduct. Removal is irrelevant and Donald Trump's case because he's been out of office. His term expired on January 20th. So Republicans were going to say, Why are we having this big trial to remove a president who is already gone? And Democrats are gonna say well, there's an additional penalty. An impeachment if if someone is impeached and convicted, the Constitution says that punishment will not go beyond shall not extend further than two removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States. That means a federal office like the presidency or senator member of the House. So Democrats going to say that the president's the former president Trump's actions were so serious in the first couple of weeks in January That he must be forbidden from ever holding office again. And that's what the big fight is about. And what you there the way you phrase your question, I think is correct, Which is I think there's some Republicans were going to say, Look, we don't even have to get to the merits of this case. That is whether the president incited insurrection because it's just a fact You can't impeach Ah, president who's already Out of office and they might make the argument is well, Byron even if there are people arguing, yes, they can write. It is legally permissible. They might summer arguing that you and people can come back and say OK. For the sake of argument. Let's say yes, you can do this. And obviously that mean the trial's gonna happen. So it looks like the process of Lisa's moving forward. There's also the prudential question of, should you it does is there A good reason to do this right if he's already gone, and for for some who are very critical of trump on what happened after Election Day, all the way through January, 6 in particular. Touchstone. There is going to be accountability and then for others, it's going to be okay. Whatever you think of what happened, And to be sure, Trump acted badly. And maybe we could have discussed a censure. But why are we wasting all this time to remove someone from office who is already removed from office because his term expired? And I guess you know you want to maybe get to 67 votes, which I think will be very hard to do to convict the guy to then bar him from office, which only takes a bare majority, but the prerequisite is conviction. On and you can also Debate whether or not that's the right decision there as well, because, you know, I think I've been very critical of President Trump on what he did what he said the lies about the stolen election and fostering the environment that lead To that violence in the siege on the capital, But I also sort of feel like if voters decide four years from now that they want him back. I kind of believe that should be up to voters in the United States right to to the citizens of this country, as opposed to up to, you know 51 or 50 senators, plus a tie breaking vote. That's sort of how I'm wrestling through some of these questions on I just wonder on the threshold question. Byron of whether or not this is Even allowed it. All right. I've heard arguments on both sides. Constitutionally of this. There's on Lee one tiny precedent right in today involving a non president who resigned from a position of power. Tell us about that and how it might be relevant here or how it might not correct. First of all, we should say that there is no precedent at all for this in the sense of former president being tried from people's just never ever happened, But they do point to a case of a Cabinet officer, a man named William Belt. Knapp, who was the secretary of war in the 18 seventies and the Grant administration. He was accused very credibly is guilty as hell probably of financial corruption. And so on. On this day that put the house is scheduled to vote to impeach him. And a couple of hours before the scheduled vote. He goes to the White House and resigns. He goes to President Grant Any resigns, and then he says, Well, hey, you can't impeach me. I'm a Warmer official. Well, the house went ahead on impeached him, and then it goes to the Senate, and there's a big debate over well, he's a former official. Can we impeach him or not? And they have a vote. And that's a it's a majority vote of the majority says Yes, we can him impeach him. So then they have a five month trial pretty long deal and he's acquitted because you know that you have to get to a two thirds vote to convict and they didn't get to that. And the reason they didn't get to. It was that there were a lot of senators who believe that it was not in their jurisdiction that he was a former Um, a former official and not in their jurisdiction. So is maybe not about it was not about the guilt on the merits necessarily was about Should we be doing this here? Under these auspices for this purpose, given the fact that this former official is indeed former. So this sort of vote the votes against conviction on that principle rather than the facts of the case. Correct. I think he was. There was consensus that he was guilty of what he's accused of. Now, here's the thing. So that is the one president that Democrats will point to here. But there's a lot of other presidents of officials either being impeached or being threatened with impeachment or impeachment has begun. The process has begun, and they resign and then Congress just drops it. Most of all, obviously the biggest issue. Biggest example of that is President Nixon, who resigned in 1974 ahead of impeachment. But most impeachments in this country involved judges and there've been like close to 50 judges who are either under investigation or impeachment had begun. And they resigned. And then nothing was On, even though his judges they could possibly hold a position under the United States in the future, But they were like qualify. Alcee Hastings opted. Alcee Hastings is a Democratic congressman from Florida. Who is himself an impeached federal judge for bring a bribery and corruption. I believe if memory serves, and he was able to then move on and run for the house and women, and he's been there ever since. He was in peace and removed but not banned from holding future office and the voters in Florida decided to send him to the house. And there is so there you have that there are these two questions. There's There's yes, there is one president in the belt nap case before impeaching a former Cabinet secretary. But then there's all these other examples like dozens of examples of Congress deciding to drop an issue once the person has resigned, and by the way, you'll you'll hear Democrats say, Well, gee, if we don't Try President Trump. Then president resigned right before impeachment and escape all punishment, as if resigning is not a rather large punishment for president. You might wanna ask Nixon about that. But the fact is, that's not even an issue in the Trump case because he did not resign. He served out his full term terminated at noon on January 20th. And now he's the former president.

The nightmare scenario eyes that in a close election, it all comes to down down to some judicial decision. You know, in North Carolina and in Pennsylvania, the Legislature's had passed laws governing the elections. You had Teo a ballot had to have been postmarked by Election Day. And received either on election day or, but within three days later, you've had a number of Democratic lawyers tried to push that that day that date later, and the Supreme Court has declined to intervene so far. Republicans didn't want even to be three days later. The courts have already been business has been over 300 laws, election lawsuits already not even Election day.

"At trump. Is what accounts for the incredible intensity that we've seen I mean somebody could go back to the Clinton impeachment and say that was pretty intense and go back to the the war over George W Bush war Iraq and that was pretty intense too. But what accounts for this intensity here and I think it's their different reasons I think that Among many Democrats obviously they expected to win in twenty sixteen, but it was more than that. After Barack Obama won. In two, thousand, eight with a with a new coalition of minorities, women, and young people. They. Basically thought we were going to win the presidency from now on because you had that coalition and you add to it each year with the increasing percentage of the population of Hispanic voters and then Bang win the presidency forever and ever, and so that came to A. Kind of ugly in with the election of Donald Trump and they they were incredible. Not just shocked but incredibly angry. So I think that that accounts for some of it is a matter of fact. In the book. I recount. What happened. On January sixth twenty seventeen trump is the president-elect he hasn't become president yet. But that's the day that The Congress meets certified their insults at the Electoral College and of course it's a done deal by that time it's all over this is just a ceremony. To certify the results of the Electoral College and Republicans were stunned when Democrats tried to stop. The they they protested. The certification of the results of several states on the grounds that Russia had elected trump to the presidency and Republicans had no idea that the intensity of the anger on the democratic side and they looked at each other and said wow. This little worse than we thought. So I think that that's a lot of the reason for the intensity and anti-trump feelings in there. You know there's a very small but vocal group of never trump Republicans I think that they were in part angry over the loss of clout. Access absolutely income the kind of things that you have.

"As Joe Rogan might say the great and powerful Byron York, he's one of our favorites a an actual trusted journalist. Imagine that chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner Fox News contributor and all around very wise and thoughtful cerebral man. He has a new book out called Obsession inside the. Washington establishment's never ending war on trump. Well, how very timely couple of days after the debate. It's still continuing. Isn't it Let me give you the quick version. What the book is about go back to December Twenty Nineteen Democrats in the house were rushing they were racing to impeach the president. By Christmas and reporter asked Nancy Pelosi what's the hurry? Why are you rushing this? And she said there is no rush. This has been going on two and a half years since mother and a lot of Republicans. Took note of that they sit laus finally she has admitted. She has said this impeachment we're going through. This is not about Ukraine not about a phone call. This is a continuation of the long efforts to remove the president from office, and that's what the book is about, and that effort continues to this day. Myron, you've always struck me as a guy who doesn't wanna be perceived as indefinitely are not a hack kind of guy that wants to be right down the middle, but it strikes me that if you're going to call balls and strikes in their all wild pitches, you gotta call him while pitches in it strikes me that it's almost sucked you into making positions that maybe you would ideally like to make you just want to be a guy that says, this is what happened and yet when everything's Gone Awry and you call it that way. I would imagine that's not easy for you to do. Well you have to I mean you're drove conclusion in the end, you tell the whole story. You show basically that you know the first vote people don't know this the first vote, the house cone impeachment was in December twenty seventeen, the president's first year in office and a congressman.

"Byron York with real insightful commentary over the Washington examiner today Democrats once crowed about having the most diverse field in presidential history and that was likely true there were African Americans women a gay guy white man elderly white men white white men now is Byron points out its down to Joe Biden Bernie Sanders apparently the parties rush to Joe Biden was so swift it almost invites rethinking in the days to come Byron York asks will there be a Biden hang over yes he was the front runner from the moment he declared Democrat voters are familiar with his name but because of the peculiar circumstances of twenty nineteen Joe Biden has not been subjected to the withering extended scrutiny that being a presidential front runner can bring this sense of a Biden blowout was enhanced by the fact that most of his wins took place in the eastern and central time zones of super Tuesday when the polls closed first Sanders won his home state of Vermont he won Colorado he won you talk if you want Texas and California it would have been a pretty even match up but Biden on the strength of those late deciders took more delegates in Texas it appears Sanders headed to victory looks like California when will keep him in the delegate race he fell short but what should stake now is this resolution of a deep divide within the Democratic Party between Bernie Sanders young revolutionary minded constituency now strengthened by significant numbers of Hispanics and Joe Biden's older more cautious electorate the outcome might be decided less he writes on the substance of issues then on the temperament and stamina of two men who were either elected would turn eighty shortly after entering the White House many Democrats Byron York Byron York writes especially those who were proud of their candidates diversity I wondering how they got here thank god here this is what you're left with Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders and I want to yeah I mean the trump younger than both up and certainly has a lot more stamina and and and you know energy and smarts certainly street smarts the Joe Biden we're in a really weird place sharply very strange place and the Democrats are just flailing about there really panicking on so many levels I mean you've got Chuck Schumer with his unhinged comments about Supreme Court justices Gorsuch and Cavanaugh this week you got just crazy talk from crazy radical Democrats receded to leap I'm going to be very careful in my commentary about her remarks listen to congresswoman Rasheeda to leave this week and what she said about abortion and sex cut three from Great Britain.
Lessons Learned From The Iowa Caucuses, And Danger Signs Ahead
"I'm encouraging everyone to get out and give a separate the clapper Joe Biden I don't know the results and I with the I know we got rolled over last night he lost the lot he lost third fourth or fifth place we'll figure it out in the course of the day I'm joined by Byron York of the Washington examiner to talk about three things is state of the union tonight the impeachment acquittal tomorrow and the Iowa fiasco last like good morning Byron good morning June which order and were you up all night no I wasn't actually I actually I will I will tell you on our caucus story which is as you know there are a few journalists here in the morning and and all all of them were covering the democratic caucuses so I thought to myself I get here on Thursday in time to go to the president's rally it was clear the president I had a pretty large operation in Iowa and it was not because he was terrified of Joe Walsh or bill weld it was because he was trying to win the general election to get it in the bag while Democrats were still struggling to find their candidate now we didn't know how much how struggling they work so what I did was I went to a Republican caucus last night in Ames Iowa but forty minutes north of the mind and if they did this radical they voted once they counted the votes and I reported the results all my gosh you're kidding me and so it what was interesting you know AT and another thing I did years I I also went to a campaign event from Joe walls the former Republican congressman who is challenging the president does want to see how how this worked out and I don't know if you've seen the results but statewide from one ninety seven point one nine percent of the vote and walls one one point zero eight percent and bill weld on last year's governor one one point two seven percent so so Joe bill Burr Joe beat Bill Joe Walsh rebel our world no no no no bill weld bead Walsall world world up one point two seven percent to Walsh's one point zero eight percent that's got a first test for never come Republican challenges and it did not go well that's got a thing to lose to Bill well I'm sorry Joe Joe used to be on the Salem radio network and and it and so sorry Joe our condolences Byron let's talk a little bit about the hunter gatherer aspect of the trump campaign when it comes to data because I believe that's what the rallies are about I believe that with the caucuses were about the president's gathering that you attended on Tuesday night they are looking for the data they are and and they're also looking to make an impression the for people who might not remember in nineteen eighty four in February of nineteen eighty four Ronald Reagan as president he's headed to a huge reelection he certainly has no we nomination worries and he comes to the moment and that's the point in Waterloo used to rallies on caucus day when the Democrats are trying to choose their candidate and the Democrats are outraged the service is done it is not worthy of a president but Reagan did it and he really kind of took some of the oxygen out of the room for Democrats now Jeff Kaufmann who is the chairman of the Republican Party here and I was set back in June he told president trump about this and you know Mister president and Ronald Reagan did this in the end if growth Democrats not now I think other people probably recommend this as well but sure no problem was here and got in about seven to eight thousand people it great university and would that was far greater than any other Democrat in the event that any Democrat had plus trump brought a long list of circuits his his family cabinet members members of Congress Republican governors I was that the the caucus where Donald Trump junior spoke and they stepped up their social media and as you say they got all the information everybody came to the rally and then of course you have the information for value comes to the to the caucus and by the way they registered to vote a bunch of new people last night as well now they will move on I think yeah election effort but I think that circus will move on to New Hampshire even as the zombie campaign of Biden struggles forward the president tweeted thirty seven minutes ago by right New York the democratic caucus is an unmitigated disaster nothing works just like they ran the country remember the five billion dollars obamacare website that should have cost two percent of that the only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is quote trump close quote I don't think the president's going to allow this to pass I'm remarked upon all day long any may even bring up the state of the union Byron York I would think I would think and and by the way it it does appear that that vice president Biden did not do so well and I did go to his last event in here in deadline before the caucus and I will I will say though just a few things one the the questions about whether he has the vigor required for a long hard campaign those are really open questions that really he's not a high energy campaigner at this point he brought circuit like Chris Dodd and John Kerry which really gave the impression that he is a man of the past not really electrify anybody from the stage with use the most important thing was really interesting you spoke for more than twenty minutes and did not mention any of the Democrats most important issues no healthcare no climate change no gun violence no tops Isshin it was really extraordinary all he talked about without terrible crumple as any displayed no vision for the future beyond bringing things back to how they were when Joe Biden was in office so I you know I think a lot of Democrats look at that campaign is that this is just not working and when we do finally get results from last night we'll probably gonna see that the team by noon put out at five hours ago by bill Russo any campaign saying they wanted putting out in completing numbers is contributing to the chaos and misinformation they would like very much to move on before a fourth or fifth place finish is finalized I don't think they can escape that Byron but let's turn to impeachment I believe there will be an acquittal I don't know if it will be bipartisan do you have any reporting on that I don't I do not have any insight I I do know that efforts to try to censure the president I think you're completely doomed if you remember in nineteen ninety eight there were some Democrats in the Clinton impeachment nine nine or some Democrats who wanted to censure the president and not not impeach him but house Republicans went ahead and impeach the president of course they had a trial and a lot of Democrats who waited he's just been impeached and he had a trial that's a pretty big censure right there so I do not see any Republicans in the Republican supporting the center specially wanted strongly worded as Joe mentioned was circulating yesterday now I also want to make sure I get your reaction Byron I begin the program by saying lord bless and keep Rush Limbaugh I'm a prank I don't know if you are but he the ease the fellow who built the talk radio mall I just got a I'm a tenant like everyone else

"To say joined by Byron York on the you you and show you the latest I have just tweeted out is about the president's lawyers response Byron good morning I was reading your response at four AM this morning gosh you work late last night good morning you you know I thought it was a big deal it is of the defense memorandum because it's really the first comprehensive defense that the White House is may eat and believe me there were people on Capitol Hill Republicans on Capitol Hill who were wanting more of a defense of the last four months more of a comprehensive organized defense for the White House they weren't getting at all but on the eve of the trial they got it in the form of this one hundred ten page memo remember that that chain from Braveheart hold hold hold well Jay Sekulow and Pat Cephalonia waited until the trial and then they unleashed a hundred and ten pages of very dense argument which I've gone through back I've gone to the footnotes and I will get the footnote five six five in the second but generally it's a wrecking ball and I do believe I'm already thinking democratic ship has gone to the bottom I do believe that I don't know that I do I one of the most important things about it is you've been hearing Democrats say look at present hasn't made this case because he has okay he has no defense and then another thing you hear is Republicans have focused on process so much because they cannot address the facts of the case and I think one of the important things about this memo is that it does argue process it argues about the the definition of an impeachable offense but it also goes into great detail about the event at the heart of this case the president's July twenty fifth phone call with president the one key all the events surrounding that there's there's virtually a word by word analysis of the rough transcript of that phone call so everybody said the White House would not defend the president on stop on the substance of the matter has been

G. made note in the I. G.'s statement on the topic possess some indicia of an arguable political bias in favor of a rival political candidate that's a quote from Atkinson statement not only do we do we know that we now know according to get Washington examiner's Byron York that the whistle blower had a some sort of professional or working relationship with one of the rival presidential candidates one of the Democrats socialist running for president perhaps that's yet another reason why the Democrats want to shroud their impeachment proceeding they're in a sort of a star chamber format in secrecy a Joe digenova who is a former US attorney from the DC circuit he was on with Laura Ingraham last night and he took even a harder line with respect to the whistle blower whistle blowers the Democrats in the house want to destroy the president they don't want to preserve the Republic there's nothing honorable about what is happening this is a despicable abuse of constitutional power if they had on the floor of vote to establish an impeachment inquiry that would give the Republicans subpoena power but the Democrats are doing that they want to deny them subpoena power so what do we get we get first one anonymous informant that a second anonymous informant I refused to call the whistle blowers these two nine entities are suicide bombers that the Democrats have unleashed on the democratic process a suicide bombers may be a bit strong be strong for me but do you essentially agree with digenova's
