"In line to provide the financing for his secret real estate deal in Russia that he was working on throughout the campaign that could have been worth hundreds of millions of dollars to him. And then the day after that the president of Russia says, yeah, that's good about Syria. But you know, what you may want to get out of Afghantistan to and within hours, the president has announced that too and now the Defense Secretary has resigned in protest, and and and well the government's likely going to shutdown tomorrow. But on top of that if you think that the pressure on the president over the Russia issue may be driving any of this driving the president's behavior in decisions as president. Maybe driving the stress in the White House about the investigation into the Russia matter, and what it may turn up and what kind of pressure and may put on the president and his family. Today on top of all of it. Or maybe intrinsic to all of it today was also the day that they really just made their move in the Justice department. Now, you may have followed the twists and turns of this over the course of the day today. But rather than go through the ways, this this story changed over the course of the day and how the Justice department put out an initial scope Atari story and then had to retract it. And later put out the real story after anonymous officials corrected the referee record about what really happened after going through. It was a very weird day today in terms of the Justice department letting out this information where we have ended up is is serious and actually just to sum it up. What I'm gonna do? I'm just going to read you the lead that was just posted tonight by the excellent reporter, Charlie savage at the New York Times because I think he actually he nuts. This up pretty perfectly after twisty day on this story. Quote, Matthew Whitaker who was installed last month as acting attorney general by President Trump. Has cleared himself to supervise the special counsel's investigation rejecting the recommendation of career Justice department ethics specialists that he recuse himself. The development came soon after the disclosure that the president's nominee for attorney general William Barr had written a memo this spring in which he strongly criticized one of the main lines of inquiry by the special counsel Robert Muller, whether Mr. Trump had committed obstruction of Justice disclosure of the memo raised questions about whether bar would order Robert Mueller to shutdown that component of the inquiry. If the Senate confirms bar as attorney general together the developments underscored the potential threats to Mr. Muller's ability to complete his work without interference at a time. When his inquiry appears to be drawn closer to the White House and to the president's most trusted associates. Charlie savage than quote, Senator. Mark Warner Virginia the top democrat on the intelligence committee. Who said today, quote, it is becoming pretty clear that the president is basing his choices for leadership at the Justice department on candidates criticism of the Mueller investigation. We can all see what's happening here. So buckle up. It has been a day at the rate. Things are going may be a night as well. We're going to be joined by the incoming chairman of the judiciary committee in the house tonight as well to try to make some sense and put in context some of these major new developments. On the issue of the Russia investigation after a rip roaring couple of weeks of very dramatic courtroom developments driven by the special counsel. The mask did sort of get ripped off ripped off today. In terms of how the president intends to try to to try to get the special counsel's investigation from inside the Justice department. Simultaneously, the Russian government has just gotten a huge series of very very very expensive gifts from the president in very quick succession, including at least one that was so expensive it cost him the resignation of his Defense Secretary tonight. And so let's start there with some expert help joining us sales, Courtney Kuby NBC news national security reporter, Courtney thank you for being here. Thanks for having me. So. What's going on? How's your day pretty normal? Yes. You know, holidays shopping. Is there any question about why secretary Mattis resigned tonight? Is there any ambiguity about?

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

"Maybe sean spicer's notes will eventually prove to be that but from this crucial period around the firing of james comey tonight again the new york times is reporting that it's the handwritten notes from former white house chief of staff reince priebus those notes now in the hands of robert muller notes that reportedly substantiate the bombshell claims made by fbi director james comey that the president personally pressured him on the russia investigation before he fired him and there's more also from this reporting tonight in the new york times quote president trump gave firm instructions in march to the white house his top lawyer to stop the attorney general jeff sessions from recusing himself in the justice department's investigation into whether trump's associates had helped a russian campaign to disrupt the 2016 election mr trump sorry mr trump apparently instructed white house counsel don mcgann that he should that he should go pressure jeff sessions to recuse himself from the russia investigation mr mcgann's argument to sessions was that he did not need to step aside from the inquiry until it was further along and that recusing himself would not stop democrats from saying he had lied according to the new york times tonight after jeff sessions told them again that career justice department officials had said he should step aside mcgann said he understood and backed down but again newly reported by the new york times tonight that the president personally directed the white house counsel to go lobbied the attorney general don't recuse yourself on the russia investigation we don't know either how strange that is as behavior by the president or whether that's potentially a problem for the president if he is being investigated for obstruction of justice so that's one further point tonight from the new york times the president reportedly instructing his white house counsel to go stop the refusal of the attorney general we know that wasn't effective.

"Last night and ed henry there prestisements that you agree should there be a purging gets that hey the purchase already happening these people are residing or getting reassign all for their political biases as you just heard cheryl atkinson lay out there well setting aside whether you like the word purge or not does there need to be some sort of house cleaning what is it terni general jeff sessions doing because there was a time in this country where someone was identified and described as a career justice department official a career fbi investigator that meant something it meant that they weren't a political appointee they weren't that hack they weren't somebody that the current administration just happened to put their and so they are clean and unsullied of any political influence they'd been there their whole career they just care about the truth they just care about justice they just care about enforcing our laws and sadly now i think that the mood in this country seeing what is going on seeing what happened with the hillary clinton investigation seeing what's going on with the robert mueller special counsel investigation of donald trump and the dossier and you learn of all of the into relations between these lawyers and investigators and media fair political figures excuse me an end and sadly i think the opposite is now true the problem is with the career justice department officials because they are so entrenched in the deep state they are so entrenched in the politics of washington dc that day they're beholden to that and not to the constitution not to the law and if you dare call the monnet if you dare shine the light of truth on what's going on then your slandering every fbi agent years slandering every justice department official your slandering every good work or be there who is trying to do the lord's work well that's not the case i'm not doing that at all but the best thing if you really loved the fbi if you really care about the fbi if you really care about the justice department you should be outraged about these stories that's my biggest problem with rod rosenstein the deputy attorney general when he was facing off against the judiciary committee against the f rm mentioned representative gets and representative jim jordan when they were pressing him on these issues.

"Those folks really respect sessions the senate respect sessions he served for decades most people respect jeff sessions whether or not they greer disagree with them it seems like a massive fumbled with a pathetic attempt to then district well we've seen as president pick fights with a number of people that he loves relishes in this sort of thing and this may be the fight that he picks that he doesn't win and not just because of his base and because of the sport that jeff sessions has among republicans in the senate but because he's been one of his most effective cabinet members in terms of implementing the trump agenda whether it's on immigration or other issues that he campaigned on and so it's a very odd target for him to pick and it's one that doesn't seem to be sustainable and richard haass the president's continued to go after those investigating russian potentially uncovering his financial relationships there's an actual list at building up here that it just seems so obvious of course it could be something else there's attorney general jeff sessions of course who he blames for recusing himself from the russia investigation which mitch mcconnell another leading republicans say was the right ethical decision and also quite frankly the president actually admitted that is jeff sessions said to the president i would do the right thing and recuse myself from the russia investigation before he appointed him he wouldn't a picked him it's incredible there's also deputy attorney general rod rosenstein a career justice department employees nominated by republicans including himself rosenstein appointed a special council and trump has questioned his integrity by stating wrongly.
