Our guest I think that one of the ways you avoid war is to conduct conduct nor commerce. You developed an expertise and many relationships within the Russian energy industry. Do you think that the fact that you were doing business with Russia is part of the reason you retargeted obviously, they were going after president trump does that have a chilling effect on those who would develop that expertise and do business with Russia that it's always it's always a source of a smear.

Come to know and then close with over the years would certainly would certainly believe that and what attested these these problems. I I think you know there is We in terms of the US energy industry and US finance industry have done extraordinarily important work not only in an economic context, but also in you know in terms of politics as well. this has been a major driver if you look back one of the real trendsetters or you know great great leaders. Over the course of the last century has been President Ronald Reagan. And what he did was help You know this one of his greatest accomplishments from his to trump's in office was developing these these new possibilities through the process of glass noth- in Paris strike. in terms of. Moscow relations and unfortunately do these criminal acts. Done by so many terrible people in and around Washington against then candidate trump and really throughout. The course of the four years that followed have really been a huge. Problem, in terms of realizing a lot of other additional possibilities that that might be on the on you know on the horizon and of course, look I mean president trump has done amazing things in terms of opening up our energy industry and you know reeling back from the terrible regulations that were done for. Political purposes. For. Democrats that are looking to advance their their you know insider colleagues Some of these green new deal type of type of initiatives but they're they're certainly a lot more that could and should be done on the international context as well. In addition to everything that president trump has been doing on the domestic front as well as internationally in terms of you know just more probably the most meaningful and noteworthy.

"As a way of interfering in our last presidential election he uncovered a very similar situation to my own where the FBI b. i. had some suspicions, etc. about people again, totally made up suspicions by the Democrats in my case, but they found various things and so essentially the FBI and DOJ under the. Obama. Biden Administration allegedly they warned they warned the Clinton campaign and unfortunately there were you know a lot there are a lot of dirty tricks going on to interfere in our last presidential election and not only did they tell no one and give any accurate or otherwise information to the trump campaign or then candidate trump but they ended up doing these really illegal disgusting schemes in the most top secret forums in our country to to sort of spin this false false narrative in federal courts. You know a lot of lies were told to federal courts and not only that. Again the intelligence community and the Democrat Party worked very closely with them mainstream media to just. Propagate this complete lie. So it really is a terrible situation, Kevin Kevin Kline Smith a an attorney within the FBI recently pled guilty to having altered a document in that document said. Carter page was known to the CIA. He was already advising the CIA. He was a source of theirs from two, thousand, eight to two, thousand thirteen because he was a source. Then the FBI looking at him as a Russian asset should have been affected by that. So he altered that to say that you weren't a source keeping this out of it, which, of course, he committed a crime. Can you talk a little bit about that and how rewarding it was for people to see after all these years that you've lived through see what they were doing these guys were committing crimes against me. Yeah well, I mean Michael to me frankly speaking it's not it's not very rewarding at all because I know and I doubt I directly dealt with Kevin Kline Smith and my legal team was in contact with Kevin Kline Smith.

"I think it was candidate that had that quote right now never negotiated fear never feared negotiate I mean the reality is. We've painted ourselves into a a corner in many ways of you know it's all fear and this goes back to the start of the when you when you when you see that people who are opponents of. Vladimir Putin being poisoned that. Stokes fear. Don't you think does that I mean that doesn't say to me changing for the better. Does it say that? Look. Again, no one's no one's perfect and let me say I, will agree with you that that would be perfect. Well I something when I am facing when I was facing. Frequent. Almost constant death threats. You know there's a lot of overlap. There's a lot of similarities right and if. Whether you're. deferential from a four, hundred pound person in their basement on twitter etc is a little different than death threats from the president of your country. Don't you think I mean listen threats to but I haven't had any from the president yet. Well look. When your life is put at risk I, mean even by. The terrorism statutes a threat. Is. You know it's like you're asking about are these things. We should be concerned about you know by law whether you actually blow up the building or threaten blow up the building. I mean, by the US terrorism statutes, those are equally illegal actions and unfortunately this mass hysteria, which again goes goes back to the fear. which has prevented any Ford Progress I mean, that's that's the scariest problem. It's something that needs to be addressed I think you know having a little bit more of an open mind and not you know constantly. Closing closing. Yours I mean there again, there's there's good and bad ways of negotiation right but you know I've same sorts of of. Do you think that every country should be treated the same if if we found that? The president of Brazil. worked to poison or been involved in poisoning potentially someone who was an opponent. Heck. We just saw Saudi Arabia and the problems there where Jamal Kashogi tilled by them. Abaya by folks who were connected potentially to NBS in Saudi Arabia. If we found out that that was happening in a place like Brazil or in a place like Rwanda or in any really any other country wouldn't we get a little bit pissed at Boris Johnson. If we found out, he had done that and not necessarily expect to use a carrot and stick approach. Is there a reason that there seems to be a little bit more? Willingness to be patient with a country like Russia than there might be with some other country if they did similar things. Of course I mean everything you know you have to. And, this is part of the issue it's and it's exactly the same argue mavs making a few minutes ago. You know I I think an absolutist philosophy is really effective or rarely you know a good way of going about problem right? So had to be a little more lenient on some countries. I I I would suggest the right and you know I think and there are ways of doing this. This goes back to you know negotiating with family members as well. Right to the extent that you know there's there's different ways of having that conversation. unfortunately when we as a country or various actors within our country. Always, have on the front page these. Often. Overworked or overstated threat assessments. A bad certain situations are you know often that? That can have a negative impact and it really does not. Leave open many. Positive alternatives it becomes a pretty much a catch twenty, two for. for officials in Washington in terms of the possibilities. Again, this is not a call for appeasement in any way or any sort of course, weak-kneed approach but it is you know going in, it is a suggestion that it. It can be helpful to have a bit more of an open mind and bit more A. Way. Of looking for a constructive dialogue, which in turn can lead to Ford progress many. It's kind of interesting though to me because I mean Russia's sort of one of the few places. In the few areas. Of. Discussion or policy in in Washington DC, where there has been some pretty bipartisan agreement that they are not a friend or ally I mean I'm sitting here thinking of of Lindsey Graham Marco. Rubio. As you mentioned been Sasse, several Republicans who have said. You know they're very concerned about. The way we are the way. The United States is relating to Russia and the threats that Russia. Poses to the United States. It's one of the few areas of agreement between parties that Russia's not our buddy. So Do Do you? Do you think do you understand I guess what people might? Say How funny that the one thing that Democrats Republicans seemed to kind of have a consensus on this particular president Doesn't necessarily. Agree with them is that. Weird. LemMe Lemme agree with you clay and also note another example where we had a similar situation where there was bipartisan support. And that was nineteen years ago or Twenty eighteen years ago now. in the lead up to the war in Iraq right and or there was consensus both on the left and the right. That these guys are bad and again it's the same sort of. Situation Right, where it's add situation, you had to parties and the president all agreeing that yes Iraq Iraq in in this situation, you're.

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Graham to probe Russia investigation; won't call Obama
"The Senate Judiciary Committee is launching an investigation into the start of the Russia probe but will not call the previous president to testify South Carolina Republican senator Lindsey Graham chairs the committee should there ever been a Mauler investigation was a really any evidence in twenty seventeen but Graham is rejecting president trump's call to help former president Barack Obama testify about unmasking trump adviser Michael Flynn when Flynn surfaced in intelligence reports that would open up a can of worms and I have for for a variety of reasons I don't think that's a good idea he says the judiciary committee will investigate the justice department decision to dismiss the case against Flynn and possible abuses surrounding the investigation of former trump campaign adviser Carter page Jackie Quinn Washington
Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you
New information adds to questions about Russia probe dossier
"Two Republican senators have released footnotes from the justice department inspector general report that raises the prospect that Russian dis information made its way into the Steele dossier opposition research by former British spy Christopher Steele against Donald Trump before the twenty sixteen election the FBI relied on that information when obtaining warrants to eavesdrop on a former trump campaign adviser Carter page despite being warned there were questions about the dossier's accuracy and the potential it contained Russian disinformation the FBI did not use the dossier when it opened the Russia investigation twenty sixteen but the FBI director is being asked to provide all the intelligence records that were used Jackie Quinn Washington
The Genesis of the Impeachment Trial
"We always find the next thing to discuss it's it's a rolling rolling train of stories and you always have the right balance is in the break you discuss the meat discussed with me this issue of the genesis all of the impeachment which is not what what most people think that would be the Torah well it began it did the department the national security department the Deanna high and a big rector national intelligence the guys it's about all of our intelligence yeah we just use didn't used to be back in the days when I was Goldwater's two counts of as an intelligence committee the DCI the head of the CIA was was that you are having all of Callahan's world but they changed it after nine eleven I think it was a very big mistake so now they put another layer of bureaucracy over all the intelligence agency that he hasn't he hasn't inspector general yes hi gene was a wired this IGT from the justice department who had worked on all of these fights that might well accidents and Michael and he changed the rules at the last minute right before the curtain was change the rules to say on whistleblower for whistle blowers he said it doesn't have to be first hand information it can now be second hand which is outrageous anonymous person giving here say that is because he knew that Eric Karabell of who was going to be the only thing didn't happen personally I think this is so important is we created the rules for a specific person I need to any three peat this so that the individual whose fingerprints are all of the illegal FISA warrants that we used to spy against our campaign the trump campaign that individual becomes the Attorney General becomes the inspector general of the director of national intelligence and he's the person who changed the rules to allow a putative whistle blower who isn't a whistle blower attic Chatham Allah to become a whistle blower despite the fact he doesn't have any prime aphasia evidence of any wrongdoing exactly forty it wrong reporter the phone call wrongly yes completely inaccurate and this guy Michael Atkinson who was the I. G. for the intelligence community who allowed that so called whistle blower to go forward we have to remember during the Obama administration he worked for merry McCord John Karlen all the people who ran the national security division the people who ran all the FISA warrants and Carter page so that means he knew and was part of the legal fight as it wire taps on Carter page so some idiot in White House personnel decides well I have a good idea let's make him the inspector general for the intelligence community and he gets made and then he sets the plot in motion with this phony report from this clown Eric charm and just as importantly they president doesn't have his own person as the D. and I'm the director of national
Joseph Maguire, Acting DNI, Faced Congress after whistleblower report
"Yuvan of it to Benjamin Sunland if you the people who become household names of the impeachment drama has played out with the house vote now behind us we wanted to catch up with another central character from the very beginning a man who occupies at least for the moment one of the most critical perches in the US government our story begins late on Friday the thirteenth of September which is when Adam Schiff chairman of the house intelligence committee released a cryptic letter we're gonna let our co host Mary Louise Kelley pick it up from here the letter runs four pages on official stationery the big CEO of the intelligence committee on top it is signed sincerely Adam B. Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning

"A. This is reasonable. Doubt Talk with your host Mark Guarantees and Adam Cole get it on got to get on a treasury on mandate get it on and welcome to the best hour or so in the universe. It's reasonable doubt I'm Adam Karol on its mark arrogance over there all about the impeachment. All about impeachment. Yeah well I have. You watched any of this by the way I is. I know I'm a geek in a nerd but it is fascinating. I love the difference in in stiles. I love the speeches that are given. I love the back and forth. I loved the idiotic analysis of people who are each carrying their own water on it. I was watching last night with a somebody who will remain nameless And I watch Sheila Lee envy woman who I couple. All of these women on the the Democratic women are ex judges and the one from washing the woman from Washington and there was one other woman who I've got a mental block on who gave some pretty good what I would consider closing arguments brief but closing arguments that I thought were good and then the the Republicans as I mentioned before have really doubled down as the Party of criminal defense. I mean I. I find myself identifying sometimes sometimes with the Republicans making the arguments because they're such good criminal defense arguments you know well. Is this a safe statement. I don't know the I deal with. I feel like this. Overall feel like this sort of micro and macro I feel like the Democrats argue a slightly lately more feeling space like they. Nobody's above the law. The president nobody's above a kind of a broad gestalt of This guy nobody can come in and start making and the Republicans seem more specific there. Republicans are and this is. Why say the Party Criminal Criminal Defense? Because I've always said when people say all your criminal offense while you try and get the criminals off now actually what you do when you do criminal defenses. You're trying to hold the government accountable. You're trying to get the government to you're holding him to the process and and you know process is the second word in due process as you want to make sure that they are if they're going to basically try to convict you or bring charges against you mind you. We've likened. The impeachment treatment process in the house is similar to either a preliminary hearing or a grand jury indictment. It's bringing charges. Obviously the jury is the Senate and that's where the trial happens but in the house what you do a kin in there. I can't think of anything else. In the jurisprudence that comes closer to the impeachment than a probable cause proceeding. You try to say. Look judge. This is a problem. Look judge this is the problem and you point out those problems which which is what the Republicans are doing and people you know. The people who criticize the Republicans are saying well. They're focused on process. Now they should be. That's you know you're supposed to do that. You're supposed to but the ones who say well the the the the Nadler didn't allow us to call us meaning the minority witnesses. Well guess what you're not allowed in most probable cause precedes certainly not an indictment. You're not allowed to call witnesses in at a preliminary hearing in most most jurisdictions California included. You've got to make a proffer if you WANNA get a witness and then a judge has got to make that decision. I heard an interesting theory which is the. So here's my feeling my feeling is. I'd be more inclined to be outraged over the president's this behavior if I hadn't heard him call calls for impeachment three years ago or the day he took office. I ah see the problem is if you're going to say we're going to impeach him impeach m effort. What's his name? What's her name said to lead? It wasn't it was What's her name in Minnesota? Anyway what's the name of the woman from Washington to. She was really good. I want to get a blonde Brunette. Washington I blame Ariel size up to the point is if I had heard everyone cry for impeachment for the last three years. I'd be more inclined to go. Oh what's going on and well things have been going on for three years. It's my prom and I'm kind of the saturation point with which is I'm not sure if I trust like when Nancy Pelosi goes look a religious person we all with a heavy heart go with heavy heart. Seems like this is something you've been wanting to do for a long time now. I don't think you feel bad for the nation. It's funny that you know years ago. There was the book everything I ever learned life for. Whatever it was I learned in kindergarten or whatever and one of the first stories they teach you in kindergarten? I which I have no memory of anymore but is the little boy cries wolf and there is that Ah tendency that if you just keep coming at somebody in coming at somebody That people get They tend to shoot the messenger singer so to speak and there is that phenomena. Well you tend to not listen. Look if if I came to you I'm I'm not I'm not into the hyperbole and I'm not a hysteric if you ever see me run into this building in yelling something and I'm saying you know pointing out that you run for fucking cover because I don't do it. I know guys that are Kinda hysterics and they do it over pigeon shitting on a mailbox right but for me. It's a terrorist situation and I am not at the office all the time I said. Do you remember a story about chicken. Little because sky is always falling with you is right there are people that are that way so so a cup. One interesting piece of analysis I heard is I. There was the quid pro quo. And then there was the obstruction and blah blah blah. And it's switched to to something else and I heard somebody say they got away from that narrative because then that could get push back on them as a Biden type move with his son with hunter and the entered Ukrainian energy. So we're we'RE NOT GONNA try to bus this guy on this because someone could go. Oh you want to talk about this. Let's talk about this as it pertains to Biden especially especially Ukraine and everything. So we'll right. Change will shift the narrative a little bit. Well it's kind of to some degree. It's kind of a focus group at the same time you're doing the hearing you're seeing what gains traction with dozen gain. Traction people are analyzing. I know that one of the things that I thought gain traction. And it'll be interesting interest in seeing the Senate if they if anybody kind of doubles down on this. Some of them one of the Congressman made the argument. Okay seriously you're gonNA say that trump was concerned with corruption. This is the guy who just entered into a agreement with the New York Attorney General to divest himself the trump foundation. WHO's The guy who pay twenty five million dollars down in San Diego for trump university? Does the guy who has had a history of this that and the others and defaults so I thought that that was a compelling argument. They in a in a way that if he were to testify those would be things that you could use as what is called other crimes other motive type evidence that proved corruption really was not his At the forefront on on on the other hand the thing that I thought was a some good arguments by the Republicans were some of these process arguments. Hey why are rushing through this. Why is there a timetable? And by the way why is it that if the molar failed and now you're doing this that you don't a you know. Apparently it's an endless kind of loop in terms of impeachment building on your argument. Then why not let us call the witnesses and if the witnesses if you make a proffer if this were a preliminary hearing under eight sixty six in California you'd make a profit and say judge this witness is going to negate one of the elements and in this case you would say it's going to negate either The high crimes misdemeanor or whether or not this is a something that is substantially within the executive lekiu branch. One of the better arguments here I think for the Republicans is look. This is a problem with separation of power because Congress is as the oversight however the government or the executive branch trump is arguing. I'm the president. This is foreign policy. I can do what I want. You can't get into the the middle of my negotiations and try to divine. What might negotiations are wrong? The Democrats push back on that is you're doing it for your personal benefit. What is the There's two arguments. Now there's one school that says all right now time to head to the Senate and start start calling people up and essentially go on the offense as the Republicans. The other school of thought is. Let's just go put it to your vote. Put it behind us and not make a meal out of it. Let's just do. It voted it move it move on the the so yesterday. Saturday Mitch. McConnell said that he's working closely with the White House counsel to make to make sure there's no he didn't say it this way but something to the effect. There's no daylight between them which which is interesting because Mitch McConnell technically is the foreman of the jury And he's working hand in hand with defense counsel. I would love to do that and not get this bar. I'm you know now that you get to work with the format of the jury hand and and make sure there's no daylight between but this will be Mike Pence who traditionally would would break a tie. Vote in the Senate mind. You take sixty seven votes to convict but here if they try to do motion to dismiss front-load this and just dismiss it the you don't have Mike Pence to break tie. Why is that important? You've got to fifty three forty-seven split something like that. They may be can count on fifty one republican votes votes But there is some talk and it was William Weld. WHO's running against trump the ex governor of Massachusetts and indicated yesterday today? He's a Republican lifelong. That he thinks there are between four and six Republican senators who would not vote to dismiss and saw the Mitch. McConnell is a master if nothing else than counting votes so you think that it's just going to get over there and a majority is GonNa vote meaning more than fifty to justice Smith idol think based on reading. The tea leaves that. That's going to happen. But that it doesn't mean that he's not gonNa just orchestrate Mitch McConnell being he a very truncated fast speedy trial you so call a couple of witnesses and be done with it. Let's say he's impeached. And let's say here's a peach and the votes go. Oh and he's out. What's him from running again immediately? You know I haven't looked closely at the constitution. But if he's impeached. I'm pretty sure that he's prevented based but I could be wrong on this. I think he could i. I'd have to think sat through. Gary Ben can look it up. The question is can you get thrown off the merry go round and just climb right back on. You might be able to you. Might I talked to. Who would he be running against? I'll read a little further. But the first article I found it was titled Could Donald Trump be impeached removed and run for reelection. It's possible yeah I would think I don't think I'm trying to think if there's anything that prevents I don't know constitutionally but as a practical matter better would be fascinating. I don't know that he you know he gets impeached and thrown out on on a Friday. He's his hats back in the ring on. Monday's what I'm assuming. Here's a line from the constitution. Judgment and causes of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office and disqualification to hold the and enjoy any office of honor. Trust or profit under the United States. A- well disqualification. So has that ever since nobody's ever been removed. I guess that hasn't been tested. Well sit and go with prospective but I'm not doesn't go farther further than the removal. I'm assuming he'd go right back and I don't think he's running against anybody 'cause I just to. He just goes right back. Yeah I would be. As as trump president pence pence would say. I'm running on the ticket as the vice president. He's removed as President Benson. Yeah I'm assuming a good question if this all happens and pence is president who's the VP the succession. Is Nancy. Plans Pelosi are they. You know I know this sounds insane. But I've we weren't they. Aren't they really in the ether at this. Very they're gonna go after pence then right absolutely. Yeah absolutely I mean. I looked back in the middle. They're gonNA try to impeach pants. I don't know whether they are I. Don't think that you could get everything done prior fire to the election. But you could start knocking off guys. I don't know where does the secretary of state coming in the succession lists because then Pompeo and the rumor is is upon pails going to step step down any way to run for Senate from Kansas. So what is the soonest okay. This thing was the roundup fascinated by this is idea of removal. Whether he just runs again I I seem to think my impulses that he that's what would happen. What is the soonest? Yes we would have a definitive answer on whether he was removed or stay if he is I would say i. Oh I think Christmas is too ambitious so I would say January. Let's talk about Komi McCabe Steele dossier thank you so much for that. Part of the Inspector General's report by the way Michael Horowitz who testified. WHO's the Inspector General Doj? I I thought he did a masterful job. I watched a periods of that I watched both the Democrats and the Republicans thought Ted Cruz was over the top and could have made some better points And surprisingly I thought Sheldon Whitehouse Sousse the senator from Rhode Island a Democrat. I thought did a very end former as I remember is a former. I think I think Attorney General in the State of Rhode Island. I thought he did a masterful job. Also of questioning. You could tell this was a guy who knew his way around a courtroom. It looked so I the thought of you. When they talked about there was A? I don't know if it was a footnote because I haven't read the foreigner pages. The that steele was a personal friend of a trump family member personal had given a Tartan to this particular versus a Tartan.

I'll get a higher Carter page to write my lawsuit to clear my good name from this. This outreach somebody supervising you now on this. I'm not sure that we can trust. They're very appeal if I get this, I'm gonna peel wrong. Okay. All right. So this is a question of constitutional law was about a city zoning ordinance regarding a group home as a residence defined as four or more unrelated adults inside there. An individual applied for the permit to operate a group home for convicts and the despite the fact that the group home met the requirements for the permit. The board denied the application because of the nature of the proposed use than the individual seeking to run the home sued the zoning board seeking declaratory injunctive relief on constitutional grounds what best. Describes the burden of persuasion, right? And so that is right, who has to prove you know what you would call colloquially? The burden of proof will do the difference between burden of proof in burden of persuasion and future away the the answers correctly set forth all of the proper Burton's. So in other words, the answer you went with answer a says, because housing is a fundamental right? The board must demonstrate the denial of the permit is necessary to serve a compelling state interest. That's true if the predicate is true, right? A fundamental right requires a compelling state interest as justification. Answers accurately outlined some sort of burden like a like, like the cry. Okay. I see. So it wasn't. He sounds like nonsense to me, but apparently it wasn't nonsense and that's that's what about it too. Right? So so then see also said right, because boards action invidiously discriminates against a suspect class. The board must demonstrate that denial is necessary to serve a compelling state interest, right? So if you violate a fundamental right or you discriminate against a suspect class, then you must show a compelling state interest. You must survive strict scrutiny in order to pass. Constitutional muster then be right. This is also the difference between BSE said because it has the effect of discriminating against a quasi suspect class than the board must demonstrate that it is substantially related to an important state interests, and that's true. If you have a quasi suspect class, then you get intermediate scrutiny. It's in between strict scrutiny. And then d. which says, because there's owning boards action is in the nature of economic or social welfare regulation, because it doesn't trigger any of those things. The individual seeking must demonstrate that the denial of the permit is not rationally related to a legitimate interest..

This is a crazy person. So so he's a delightfully crazy person. Yeah. So the two things he claims her false one thing that probably true or if false is trivial false. The second are alligators that he met with eager devait current who is Putin's deputy chief for internal policy. Again, Carter page says, I don't know that guy the Steele dossier says he met with him on a trip to Russia in early July of twenty sixteen. And what we know is Carter page gave a speech to Russian diplomats on July. Seventh of twenty sixteen so Carter page was in Russia. At the time. Shockingly Russia has declined to give his tenor airy or to give us divisions itenerary. But like the timing clearly matches up and certainly for New York Times v Sullivan standards, right? It is, you know, I feel comfortable with us saying Carter page, met on uninformed. Belief, it's it's reasonable to assume the Carter page met with eager vacant. So those are the things that he claims are false. Again, I I want to point out the fact that defamation lawsuit was dismissed right at the motion to dismiss stage for not even plausibly constituting cause of action should should give you some sense of where this is heading, but there's so much more delightful stuff at this. So I'm gonna pass over. Delight. Give us a little delight. All right. All right. Count to some some. I know people have the money python quotes. Okay. Can we have a little peril? Yeah. Count to alleges that the defendants perpetrated acts of terrorism, pursuant to eighteen USC twenty three thirty to be by encouraging violence against Carter page. The defamatory statements by the DNC in the lawyers created a substantial risk of serious bodily injury. At. Eighteen USC. Twenty-three thirty to be prohibits conduct in involving transcending national boundaries. Whoever kills kidnaps maims commits an assault commits a serious bodily injury or assaults with a dangerous weapon or creates a substantial risk of that by destroying damaging any structure conveyance or other real personal property within the United States or attempting to conspire to like it it, it covers terrorism and on top of it right. You don't get to prosecute terrorism, right? Like investigative authority for this house. A lawsuit for Terri, terrorism, terrorism. It's is his the most delightful bit of net nece. But I have ever read is that the the DNC is a terrorist organization conspiring with a law firm to kill maim. Safe. Oh my gosh, it is. It is. It's it's beautiful. The the rest of the lawsuit, alleges civil Rico. You actually can do that with civil. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Any individual. So the government gets to investigate Rico as well, but but I think he just luckily stumbled onto this as it turns out, private individuals who are harmed by racketeering corrupt organizations can bring a civil Rico suit, but the injury to that organization must be from any recketeering activity which is defined as any actor threat involving murder kit that big, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery extortion, dealing obscene matter or dealing with a controlled substance or listed chemical, which is chargeable under state law and punishable by imprisonment for more than one year. Writing stories to Yahoo. I mean, I don't think I need to tell our listeners does not qualify under that list. Yeah. And by the way, speaking of snowflakes. In someone for terrorism for writing a story which had possibly a minor detail a skew? Yeah. Once again every everything, conservatives are guilty of the accused others of being, that's pretty much it goes. So Jackson, I could talk. I really wanted. You talked me out of this.

"So yes represents pro se clients he well. Oh, you would say has for a client Carter page. Has a PHD but does not have JD does not have legal degree. And and this complaint, which is kind of the cargo cult of law complaints about to to get to it, reflect somebody who's not a lawyer, but has copied other law. It's it's, it's delightful. It. It also has something I have never seen in a complaint before to signed off care of global natural gas ventures. LLC one. Oh one Park Avenue suite. Thirteen hundred, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, seven, three one zero to you. Can't do that a if you represent yourself pro se, you have to identify who you are and where you live in the court and Carter page allege in paragraph seven that he has no permanent residents due to his constant risk of terror threats being perpetrated against him. For somebody who appears on television. That seems kind of weird, but, okay. So all right, Carter page represents himself and lives at his company because he's under risk of constant terrorism. What are his what? What what is he alleged in this complaint count one net. Now we get to go back to the to the fun allegations is defamation and defamation per se against all of the defendants. And and that stems. And again, all of this stems from the story that was run in and and he says, there are two principally false things in the story. The first thing that he says is false. Is this is this is paragraph twenty of the complaint. The yahu story said that he met with eager section and he says, I don't. I've never met. He Gorsuch and I don't know who eager such a news. Who is eager such an eager section is the president of the Russian state run oil conglomerate Rosneft. Sure. Mispronouncing that. And and Carter page rain and oil company that did business with Russia. So the idea that he's never met with the president of the company seems kind of a tough one to buy, but also page himself when he was making the rounds in favorable circles. This was actually testify testimony before the the house committee investigation into collusion between the US and Russia, which was run by the house, freedom caucus and just rubberstamped everything. The Trump administration did page testified before the house that he had met with Andrei baron off. Well, under bar off is eager sections assistant. He's Ross Nef's head of investor relations. So. The idea that you could win a a defamation law for something this minor on that is even if Carter page and he, he portrays himself as a private figure because of course he does quarter page not pry. Carter page would not be a private figure even without this investigation. Right. Like, I mean, he's the head of a multinational, global energy firm. Get a real lawyer. I think he probably tried and was like, here's what I wanted to sue everybody in their mother for this. And then realtors were like yet. That's not how anything works. And he's like, doll teach you that that's my guess is, I guess that's, I think that's exactly right. That's exactly because look, this guy has tons of money. He knows tons of lawyers. He and I think everybody, I think. I think the dumbest lawyers he met with. Like, you know, you can get sanctioned, right? It is, you know, you get federal rule, eleven sanctions for filing a complaint. You know, his frivolous and the standard is super low, right? The scanning does or is because he's not a lawyer. There's no. Oh, absolutely. He can get sang cool. That should happen. And at the Ed, it should happen. The reason that we know this is going to be a little bit of a sidebar. It cuts to part of the punchline, but it's a great place to stick the reason that we know he he was from which we can infer that he was turned down by every lawyer with with whom he spoken stems. From a question, I was hoping you might ask me and that is if good are you doing tonight? Ballooned in. Oh, sorry, different question that you hope that you already asked me that off line, but no. If if all of this defamation results from a story published by yahu, why is Carter page suing and Perkins coup lawyers, right? Why? Why is he not suing Yahoo? And the answer is because he already sued Yahoo and lost. Oh, wow, I had to soom there was more on the story you're going to get to..

"I love this guy. I love this guy more than any other crazy person to date. Okay. So who is who is Carter page Carter page, refers to himself as Dr Carter page. He was one of Asia actor Carter. Oh, yeah. We could do that with with Fletch quotes anyway. So Carter page burst onto the scene in March of twenty sixteen when Donald Trump, as he was hurtling towards the Republican nomination was asked in a debate who would be his foreign policy advisers and his team subsequently released five names as being on Trump's foreign policy team and Carter page was one of those five guys. And that was surprising because here was somebody who had very, very strong ties to Russia. Somebody who had taken the opposite side of the Obama administration during the sanctions that were levied on Russia, with respect to Ukraine, and I'm gonna read. A little bit from the politico story, which says that when Carter page PHD was listed as one of Trump's foreign policy advisors. One former Eurasia group colleague said he was stunned when he discovered page mysteriously become one of Trump's foreign policy advisers. Quote, I nearly dropped my coffee. He told me the colleague added, we had wanted people who could engage in critical analysis of what's going on. This is a guy who has no critical insight into the situation. He wasn't a smart person and quote. And boy is that assessment brought out speeds in this lawsuit that was just filed in which Carter page is suing, and I wanna read to make sure we get this exactly, right. The Democratic National Committee, the Seattle based law firm of Perkins CU l l p Marc Elias and Michael Sussman he is suing all of those individuals. Oh, and by the way, I should do a a sidebar and point out that Marc Elias and Michael Sussman if you're saying, who are those people their their partners at at Perkins coie. So Mark allies is the chair of of Pook Perkins Cui's political law group. And Michael Osman, his is just a lawyer. He just works for a, you know, Covington and Burling style firm. Although my old friends at c. n. b. would would. Yeah. They also suing the doorman who we thought looked at him funny on the it's just ran. He's adding everybody's ever slided him. Is that the gist eight? Yeah. And so he blames this group of people for leaking what he calls the yahu report, which is the basis for Michael issacov's story that ran in Yahoo news that story ran on September twenty third twenty sixteen which some of you may recall as being before the twenty sixteen election. And that report was entitled US. Intel officials are probing ties between Trump advisor and the Kremlin. And that report specifically named Carter page and said that he had ties to Russia which of course he does right. And it prompted the. The Trump campaign at the time to deny knowing anything about Carter. Carter PA, gay like does now. I'm gonna take the hit on that one now for joke is you don't. You're pretending you don't know something you'd anyway. Right. Yeah, no, they pretended that they didn't know him and obviously the story, flu enough beneath the radar that it did not affect the twenty sixteen presidential election Carter page is now saying that the elements of that story are incorrect and in specific, he's argued that there are two things that are specifically incorrect about that story. But as we all know with any lawsuit, I can't get to the facts. We have to read it backwards, right? I've taught our listeners, you always read a complete backwards. So you turn to the very end of this thirty seven page complaint, and you find that it has been brought by and signed by the plaintiff Carter pay..

"I realize it's early on Sunday morning, but I'm wondering if you're starting to hear any reaction from Republicans who, again, the partisan members, the Republican majority on the house intelligence committee, all signed onto a memo that that is the opposite of what we're reading in this actual worn application and shows Christopher Steele was not the only source that there was a genuine belief among these. Those with the government aid officials who achieved this Warren who went for this warrant that Carter page really was acting as an agent of Russia. How Republicans responding to that? Well, they're not responding get of course, and I think that honestly, it is Republican Representative, Trey gouty, who is going to have a lot to answer for this because of course. He was the one who actually read the Faisal warrant itself. Nunez was briefed on it. He never actually saw the underlying source materials as the congressman just said, but Trig out did and trae Audi, of course, signed onto this memo and he endorsed it. And he did say that there was reason to believe that the FBI had not been forthcoming with the FIS accord about the fact that Chris Steele had potential biases that he was hired by partisan operatives on the Democratic National Committee in order to do opposition research on Trump. Now, we know that of course, the the FBI devoted nearly a page to disclosing Steel's potential biases of that of that kind. So it's going to be out who will have to answer for this. We have not heard them come out and say, so far, you know how they how they are going to to spend this because of course, anyone who reads the vice warrant can see in plain black and white, but the newness memo was nothing, but was everything. I mean it was very misleading. It was just. Just a complete partisan show in order to bolster this narrative that the FBI improperly surveilled the Trump campaign which of course also makes no sense because the surveillance of Carter page did not actually begin until after he left the campaign until about a month after he'd already left the campaign. So the whole thing just really is nonsensical and easy deal here is first of all here is the here is the declassified warrant for those who are watching. You can see there. Lots of redaction on it on the first page of it right at the top EJ. It's dated. This application is dated ten blacked out twenty sixteen meaning that this was worn application that took place before the United States election before the election in two thousand sixteen. So the FBI may have been late to the game. We're going to talk with former CIA direct. They were late to the game and believing that this effort by Russia was on behalf of Donald Trump, but they certainly were investigating members of the Trump campaign. What do you make of this disclosure and how it may alter the narrative Republicans are trying to put out a. About the investigation of Russia's interference in our election. I think it's really striking that that Robert Mueller and the f. b. i. n. Justice have been under a relentless attack from President Trump and the Republicans. They are clearly willing to make things up in order to further their narrative. And for a long time, they were relatively quiet. They didn't think it was their job to jump into the public debate as a sparring partner. And what they did is they waited and waited, and then suddenly they came out with really powerful information that kind of blows all the other arguments out of the water. I were those indictments which came right before Trump's meeting with Putin, and the fact that those indictments came out right before the meeting put everything Trump said in a remarkable light, he was forced to pick between Putin and orange elegance services, and he essentially pick Bhuttan and then had to clean it up in the back. And now. They are putting out this warrant, which clearly shows that there was very good reason to put a Carter page under surveillance that, hey, they had been truthful about what they knew about steel, but also that it was based on other sources. So I think they are just slowly but methodically building up a case that is going to be harder and harder for Trump to deny, not only in corridor in the congress, but to public opinion. And you know to to Parsi just looking at us as a foreign policy analyst, you have the Trump administration trying to cast out on everything..
