"Calm. I'm wrong to rocks through a little more than a week to go before Election Day, and more people have already cast ballots in this year's presidential election, then voted earlier absentee in the 2016 contest. The opening of early voting locations in Florida and Texas has led to a surge in turnout in recent days, piling millions of new votes on top of the mail ballots arriving at election offices. His voters tryto avoid crowded polling places on November 3rd. During the Corona virus pandemic. Total balance cast so far already topped the 58 million that the Associated Press logged as being cast through the mail or in person early voting in 2016. While Democrats had voted in the largest numbers, Republicans are narrowing the gap. As of Sunday, registered Democrats had cast 51% of all ballots compared with 31% from Republicans. Ben Thomas. Washington Republican led Senate Sunday voted to advance Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney Barrett toward final confirmation, despite Democratic objections for full confirmation is expected later Monday. One GOP senator says Democrats are being unrealistic in their demands for state bailout funds is part of a covert 19 relief bill. Iowa Republican Charles Grassley says Democrats are demanding hundreds of billions of dollars for states that were already deep in debt before the Corona virus. Now Democrats want Iowans. Federal tax money to bail out irresponsible state governments. The irony, Grassley's own state has one of the best fiscal ratings in the country due entirely to comparatively austere policies. Other states haven't made the same tough decisions as he says the state bailouts have no place in the next Corona virus relief bill..

"You also put out an in term report along with Senator Charles Grassley is related to Hunter Biden and it looks like you know, I could never understand. The country was dragged through a phony impeachment over a phone call with only one fact witness and the rest of the witnesses were opinion witnesses or hearsay witnesses not admissible under the federal rules of admissible evidence. And yet we have Joe by non tape, saying you're not getting one billion taxpayer dollars unless you fire this prosecutor who's investigating my son who goes on G M A, and admits he has no experience and energy, gas oil or Ukraine. And then we discovered that he made $1.5 billion deal with the Bank of China seemingly no experience there and your report, then chronicles that went a lot deeper with a $3.5 million payment with the The first lady of Moscow. If I recalled AA and and all these wire transfers with Russian oligarchs and Russian nationals, Ukrainian oligarchs and nationals and shopping sprees, courtesy of Chinese nationals, did that all happen, Sir John, this is further evidence the crush of our news media. Because they look at that. Collectively, we will. He's not proving any illegality. That's not our job. Our job is to inform the public. There was so much more information so many troubling piece of information about these connections with between 100 buying his businesses with again the white for the former mayor of Moscow with Chinese gases that connections too. The Communist Party of China and the People's Liberation on Joe Biden denied that that was true during the debate that he lie if you don't think he ever talked, he never talked to son about his overseas business. Give me a break. I report proves he lied because he talked to Amos Hochstein, who then talk to Hunter by and set up a meeting. Hey, obviously Prat. To his son about his overseas dealings. He's lied repeatedly. That's what Democrats do. They will live. It won't tell you exactly what you want to do. But again, the press the press is corrupt because They got all these leaks about all the false information of the Russian hoax. Why aren't they telling about who? The sources where they'd given false information? They were either duped, but I believe they were complicity in this false narrative. They ought to come clean as well. Something about investigate the press. So we have an election in 22 days. And if Donald Trump wins, some reason doesn't win this election. I would argue, probably all of this goes away and all of this corruption. All of this law breaking goes away with it my wrong That's my concern that will never be buried for all time. Now you know the president. I think it's actually dedicated in trying to declassify this, But he still has people in these agencies that are just slow walking it. Wow, no declassified, But we've got well, who specifically slow walking it? I would. I don't see any urgency from FBI Director Ray and I would think that he'd want to clear up. Or clean up the reputation of the world's premier law enforcement agency. So far, I've seen no no desire on his part to do that, that we subpoena him. He had two extensions I've shown on TV where we get one email from the whole thing You can read with the same email from. It's completely re back that Chuck Glassman. I can't get Gina Hospital on the phone. She won't even talk to us when we have our kind of site request on what he tells US committee arrived to the FBI on the cross by hurt in operations, so this continues to be slow up. Again. I feel so sorry for President Trump, who the second week in office he had conversation between world leaders leaked to the press who coined the President trust. I can't tell you I can tell you that's got to be an awful position for the American president being not knowing who you contrast immunities that he's supposed to be in control of. I'd be negligent having you on the phone and not asking you. Ah about well, I'll tell you what, I'll take a break here. I want to ask you about the state of Wisconsin, your state, obviously because I think it's S so crucial to this election along with Penn, while every state's crucial right. Florida's crucial Georgia, North Carolina, the Buckeye State, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin. Iowa, Arizona, Noon. Nevada, New Hampshire, The congressional District number two in Maine. All crucial, we'll get your take on the state of Wisconsin, just 22 days out of this presidential election. Look, I don't have to tell this audience that we're in a fight for the soul of this great country. And there are people set on destroying the country and they're claiming that America was founded on bad principles has never been a country that's accumulated more power and use that power to advance the human condition than this one.

"Charles Grassley is added that Flynn was entrapped and that's on the Senate floor what did Obama and Biden no when did they know what so what did you know about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn and was there anything improper done I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn number one number two this is all about the version this is a game this guy plays all the time the country is in crisis for an economic crisis the health crisis I do want to press that you say you don't know anything about it but you were reported to be in a January fifth two thousand seventeen meeting where are you in the present were briefed on the F. B. I.'s plan to question Michael Michael Flynn over those conversations he had with the Russian ambassador Kislyak I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted okay I'm sorry I was aware that there was that there that they asked for an investigation but that's all I know about it and I don't think anything else the way we operate the department of justice if we can accuse somebody of wrongdoing we have to have admissible evidence and credible witnesses need repair to prove our case in court and we have to fix our signature to the charging document that's something that not everybody appreciates a lot of talk about FISA applications and many people that I I see you talking about it seems not to recognize what a FISA application FISA applications actually a warrant just like a search warrant in order to get a FISA search warrant you need an affidavit signed by a career federal law enforcement officer who swears that the information the affidavit is true and correct to the best of his knowledge and belief and that's the way we operate and if it's wrong sometimes it is if you find out anything incorrect in there that person is going to face consequences I that was rod Rosenstein that was off finance application you're putting your signature to this Baba bar all right so timelines matter here and the news is devastating and yeah Biden was in the January fifth twenty seventeen meeting in the oval office said you have the text messages do exist about quote an insurance policy and the White House wants to be informed every step of the way and we know that in fact Obama was there and Biden was there and called me was their and Sally Yates was done according to the testimony released late last week that we got to read the transcripts that I'm Adam Schiff was hiding that in fact the Obama knew everything about the Flynn phone calls up to his eyeballs in all of this now we're going to learn the names of Obama officials who likely illegally were on masking general Flynn I like to know who did what when and where but this to the classification is going to be a big issue here as far as bite well in the future get fired wide for doing his job now we know the multiple warnings before the first FISA application even in his interview before the house Intel committee Andrew McCabe deputy FBI director confirmed yet again without the dirty Russian disinformation dossier and again in February of twenty seventeen they knew it was Russian dis information they were warned about it before the first FISA warrant in October twenty sixteen but they kept using it anyway including rod Rosenstein who signed the fourth fi's application the third renewal and he laid out the scope memo to Robert Muller for is which on acting as though this wasn't all based on a fraud so the Attorney General now is saying the FBI extended the probe for the express purpose of laying that perjury trap against general Flynn because now we have the transcripts there to that say well what is our aim here is it to get an admission or or kind of course him into lying cause them to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired so now we need to know what it'll be domino wanted by didn't know what it Samantha powers know what it's Susan rice no you know and when did they all know it because you got bomber you gotta call me they hatch their plan in large part because they kind of knew that the guy that was going to blow the whistle on all of this was general Flynn when you look at John Podesta's testimony Hillary Clinton knew that in fact this dossier was going to be Russian dirt that they were buying and paying for it that they were planning on using that's why this whole mark Ellie is thing is amazing because they know where the money went to and what the many money was spent on and you know Susan rice going back remember this meeting took place January fifth twenty seventeen fifteen days later operation day she's writing a note to self Obama said to do everything by the book and we have James clapper and and Brandon the KC clapper peers he might have lied to Congress about briefing Obama on Flynn's phone calls because he said that he didn't under oath so as you piece this together what you see is everything that we told you and then some and we even see why Adam Schiff tried to prevent all these interviews from getting out because he was being told by person after person that they saw no evidence of trump Russia collusion and he would go to the cameras and go to the newspapers and say just the opposite rand Paul is following this also had a good exchange with the Anthony Fauci earlier today how are you senator right good Sean thanks for America let's start with you know it I am always believe senator that we need FISA applications or need an ability you know to check in on outside sources people outside this country and maybe people inside this country that are talking to bad actors in Russia China or Iran wherever they happen to be and that's the way the FISA court was supposed to be designed but the power was abused here it does that mean you have to get rid of the whole thing or is there a way to save it but also put in the safe measures to protect people's privacy and the privacy and civil liberties you know I think prize which is a secret court it's first investigate foreigners should not be used against political campaigns so I think what they did to president trump was unconscionable illegal and we should never let it happen again but this is an ideal time to fix it the president will sign a fix of we actually give it to him what people are talking about is fiddling around the edges sort of weak sauce to increase some of the process of what goes on my amendment would do different my memos say Americans have no business in a secret court that uses a less than constitutional standard I don't mind surveilling foreigners we got to do it we need to do that the foreign intelligence court can do that that's what it was intended for but if you'd have asked the authors of this in nineteen seventy eight you know should we be using this to investigate a presidential campaign they would have scoffed and they would have said oh my goodness you have to have a much higher threshold Mrs were Obama comes in because this was so extraordinary there's no way he was not free from the very beginning on operation crossfire so did you know about the Flynn sure he did sounds like he's telling his own comrades he knew about that but did you also know about the investigation going all the way back to the dossier without question because this was so sensitive that I don't think they would have done it without going to the president first well let's find out the names of those people that were a masking general Flynn now usually the process of in surveillance he is if they are surveilling and somebody from outside that they have a warrant on an American citizen is on the line and they don't have a warrant to listen to that American citizen even if they recognize the person being who they are they are supposed to engage in a process called minimum is minimization which is that they had and when they write up what happened they don't mention the person's name is on masking illegal senator Paul absolutely but think about it with Carter page it's worse it's not that he's an incidental person they actually made an American who is part of the trump campaign the target so my point is that just shouldn't happen let's say we there really was somebody who works in a campaign who is a Russian spy you go to a judge or no judge in a in a regular American article three Constitutional Court that will not give you warrant and you actually get a secret warrant to listen to someone's phone but eventually they're told about it C. president trump would have never known if he lost the election we would at this very day never know that they abuse the system to go after because he would have never been told he would have never had a lawyer and he was never a day in court that is wrong and they should not ever do that to American if American really is a spy you go to an article three court they can't meet in secret in you can get a warrant from a federal judge they actually don't turn them down this kind of stuff would happen and did happen before we created Faiza but it's a real abuse and it's a danger to really the fabric of our country to allow this secret court with a less than constitutional standard to investigate presidential campaigns and lord I mean when you look at how many biased people were in there clapper Comey McCabe Strzok page you name it you can't let these people this kind of power because there's a corrupting influence to power seems to me like this was an attempted coup and an insurance policy co and without question and the thing is is it should scare us to death because of they can do that to a nominee of a major party imagine what they can do to a congressman or senator they don't like or a mayor or somebody used to be just in business but if you become an enemy of the state what happens to you and think about it from your perspective you take many positions on the air under many people don't like those do you want the intelligence agencies that the power just to say Sean Hannity what we tap his phone we should not allow Americans to have their phone even like releasing my private by private text messages which happened in a court or or or Askey is part of their of investigation with the special counsel about phone calls and text messages that they stole from me the cause that all happened to me senator yeah and see the thing is is particularly in in journalism or broadcast journalism what you'll find is that you may have contacts around the world so you may talk to people for your background research in Europe for you later time Europe or from the Middle East or different places but now if we just do an algorithm we say well who is this guy we don't know who he is he's vastly calling people Europeans calling people in the Middle East maybe we should just happens phone and then they do between an unscrupulous person says oh well sure Sean Hannity we should be listening to him then they say oh no it is Sean Hannity we hate that guy so why don't we secretly feed this information to the media or someone else they shouldn't be allowed to do it that's what we should really keep Americans out of this and it should be for foreigners and of America it's connected to the phone call there has to be an absolute masking that can only be on covered by a regular court today or if you're involved if you actually truly are involved in espionage then I think it's obviously is is reasonable on a mass the person but they're real dangers and here's my fear is we're not going to really fix this and I told the president says they're going to give you fake reform and really as as much as far as good on some issues on this he's not he's a big advocate of the of the deep state as far as intelligence power and he's fought us at every turn he didn't want any of this legislative reform then when he lost that battle the president said no we have to have some legislative forum he got involved in this is a package negotiate with the Democrats this is something that Pelosi and Adam Schiff and others agreed to with bill bar it's not with the real reformers wanted those of us who really want to fix it so what happened to trump could never happen again we're very very disappointed with this package right click trickle come back more with US senator rand Paul on the other side eight hundred nine four one showing you wanna be a part.

them differently than we would any other you know person in any other administration we light a woman say not don't don't use your constitutional rights they on mass came illegally they don't even think is lying but they force them to sign something or else they're gonna go after his kid what fathers not gonna die by the sword under those circumstances it was a complete set up from the get go Sean I think it's going to go back as as far as twenty fifteen maybe twenty fourteen with Mr methods and others arranging connections to try to make it look like general Flynn was doing something with the Russians obviously he wasn't at the same time he's working on behalf of our government to collect information for their benefit and it's been nothing but a fabulous patriot his entire life risk is life for five years and service to the country in active combat aside from thirty three years total of military service just an outstanding man from an outstanding family of patriots let me ask you because you made this filing on lieutenant general Flynn's behalf and you disclose the phones existence of miss furred art you see what the Attorney General Barr is doing and missed the dorm is doing the US attorney from Connecticut do you think based on their actions and the time they're spending in Italy Great Britain etcetera do you think are you confident that they're very close to be and if not on the target right over the target about what really went on but I do think so I think it's going to be just a remarkable revelation that will be coming from all of it that scum shakes all of us who love this country to the core of that something like this could happen here but it's got to be exposed to sunlight and that the only way we can this of the fact that well I mean but most Americans now beginning to see that there is this deep stay problem I mean if this premeditated fraud on the FISA court and the people not held accountable I mean we don't really have a constitutional system of law and justice where we have equal application of our laws and equal justice under the law now do we are definitely not I mean between the double standard in this targeted take out of people for political purposes where everything we're supposed not to be I mean that's typical Russian tactics well let's go to Papadopoulos because it was Papadopoulos you know that he was the one that first meets this guide miss but didn't it wasn't a misspent telling him that he had access to I guess celery Clinton's email server yes I think it was Manson telling Papadopoulos that he knew the Russians had Hillary's email which there's no reason to believe was true whatsoever what is the status of general Flannan's case because I know that you have been asking that this that all of this evidence under Brady B. handed over because you believe they have exculpatory evidence they are withholding from you definitely we have found even more evidence that we know they have withheld we have filed a brief just as of noon today that is quite revealing it's very powerful and I think it's going to make a huge difference judge Sullivan can see exactly what's been going on from there something kill have every grounds he needs to either go ahead and dismissed the case for egregious government misconduct right now or at the very least give us a significant amount of Brady information that the government has long been hiding there's even a valid basis to hold the prosecutors in contempt of court for ignoring is very clear Brady order we've called them in some significant outrageous violations right now the brief is under seal we forwarded it to the government for their agreement to redact certain things that are still subject to a protective order but we're hoping to resolve that before the end of the day today because it is quite stunning I let me pull you out for just a second just as one question out of your role as being the attorney for general Flynn and I I I honestly hope that the judge in this case see is how bad things went here and how corrupt things a band but what do you believe really happened if if you're putting your pieces together to the extent that you can share it based on your own observations following the case even on this program with us as we've discovered pies abuse a rigged investigation into Hillary the potential outsourcing of

S. law and basically of a coup attempt culminating in a non coup attempt over Ukraine what do you think went on I think certain elements within the intelligence community targeted general slam possibly while he was still at the end of his service in the Obama administration because he was so outspoken on important issues like the problems with isis and Benghazi and he had a lot of information and he disagreed with the bollard ministration on how that was being handled he felt so strongly about it he was forced to speak out on the issue publicly in in Congress and then when he came to actually work on the trump campaign that completely freaked them out to the point they went after him doubling down on all on it and then once he was appointed national security adviser that was even worse in fact I've heard that someone said there's actually no way Flynn can be national security adviser somebody very high up in the intelligence community gave that instruction and even told David Ignasi us to pull the trigger on the article that came out on the twelfth suggesting that he was implicated in the or had done something wrong in his call with investor Kinsley act of course there is absolutely nothing wrong the one that called the government had to admit that but that that and the buzzfeed article were part of the pre tax the FBI then used to go interview him without really telling him he was being interviewed actually I don't think Mister McCabe mentioned the lawyer issue at all I think he avoided all of that despite his memo that suggests otherwise didn't say anything about it made it sound like a very casual conversation and part of of something that the agents had just been at the White House for couple days earlier and then they talk to him enough that they they don't they actually believe he's telling the truth which she was they go back and report that and don't don't go to interview him again meanwhile the department of justice clears him of being quoted an agent of Russia in an internal memo that we found evidence on that documents that as of January thirty twenty seventeen when he was still in the White House stay right there yeah go ahead I will pick it up on the other side general Flynn's attorney city Powell wrote the best selling book license to lie wow how this book basically was just a primer a preview if you will of coming attractions as relates to prosecutorial abuse and abuse of the deep state and you know the highest levels of corruption at the highest levels of power eight hundred nine four one show on our toll free telephone number will have more on this at the bottom of the half hour your calls coming up listen all of us use cell phones all of you listening to my voice are paying too much if you're not a part of your talk are you saying while I like the big name companies what I like the big name companies.

"Now John Rothman on KGO eight ten. we have to see. there's no. the V.. I would rather be than right here with you on K. G. O.. we have a vigorous night tonight I have to tell you there is so much news. to go through and decide what we want to focus on so so let me start with the fact that if I were president trump tonight I would not be very happy and I want to explain why I'm saying that my I think from supporters and opponents will both understand my feelings. first of all the state department's inspector general is expected to brief staffers from several houses Senate committees tomorrow afternoon by the time we're on the air tomorrow night love a good sense of what happened. what is he going to brief about documents obtained from the department's office of legal advisor concerning documents related to the state department in Ukraine. that's what we're told it's going to be. details of the briefing requested by Steve Olympic the inspector general state remains unknown. but we can say that limit is expected to meet with congressional staff. in a secure location on Capitol Hill now this is unusual. yeah unusual nature the timing of the briefing during a congressional recess suggest it may be connected may be we don't know but I'm speculating it may be connected to a recent intelligence community whistle blower allegation which describes in part the state department's role in coordinating interaction between Rudy guiliani the former mayor of New York who is now the president's personal attorney and Ukrainian officials. this is critical absolutely vital to understand. the inspector general is the department's internal investigator and watchdog I'm the office generally operates independently from the apartments political leadership. now you are I know the state department is faced criticism in recent weeks for connecting Giuliani to multiple Ukrainian officials by the way on the spot on that is Mike Pompeii ale. we know that a lot is going on. and more than that we understand that the former Ukrainian envoy Kurt Volker who by the way was our ambassador to a NATO and who has been working pro bono he doesn't charge. as the special envoy to Ukraine and you remember we reported last week he resigned his post last week after his name appeared on that whistleblower complaint about president trump's dealings with Ukraine. he is testifying in the house impeachment enquiring on Thursday. and and and. interesting enough Marie you have one of each the former US ambassador to Ukraine who you'll recall was abruptly ousted former post in may we talked about that as well. will also set for a joint deposition from the house intelligence foreign affairs an oversight committees on October eleventh. by the way that the position was originally scheduled for this Wednesday it's been delayed till October eleventh. remember that ambassador Volker resigned his post Friday. after he was named in the whistle blower complaint and after the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told reporters the Volcker had encouraged him to speak to Ukrainian officials regarding former vice president Joe Biden and his son hunter Biden. now my friends the whistle blower complaint which we've discussed in depth. said. of the day after trump spoke with Ukrainian president so Lynskey and urged him to investigate Joe Biden and let there be no mistake that's precisely what he did Volcker traveled to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev to meet someone ski. in a letter to house Democrats a posted today secretary of state Mike Pompeii pushed back against the Democrats request to interview five current and former state department employees including your bondage and vulgar. and this is what Mike Pompeii ale the secretary of state said I am concerned with aspects of your request that can be understood only as an attempt to intimidate Bali and treat him properly the distinguished professionals. of the department of state wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute. who intimidates bullies and treats improperly. the people in government I'll tell you it's Donald Trump look we just did threatening the whistleblower. I remember the Democrats have subpoenaed Pompeii for documents in an effort to find out more about the trump administration's dealing with Ukraine. and yes the decision to withhold four hundred million dollars in aid to that country. on Tuesday tonight the state department's office of inspector general scheduled the surprise briefing which we're talking about. it'll be a group of house and Senate committees and they're gonna talk about documents. related to the state department you crank. this is fascinating. let me remind you vocals resignation enables him very much freer in what he can say before Congress. as for our former ambassador your father which who criticized Ukraine's top prosecutor ring too soft or corruption. she was abruptly moved out of her post in may and recall the Washington. this is fascinating. and for those who think this is just. a passing moment. let me tell you by the way had some criticism I wasn't ready for Pat Thurston but some people complain that talk about Richard Nixon so too much. Rudy Giuliani the president's lawyer just guess what he did today. he hired a lawyer John sale a former Watergate prosecutor and assistant U. S. attorney. that's right. what happened during the Nixon years is coming back to haunt us. I have to tell you a sale. a former Watergate prosecutor assistant US attorney. well Julie always in a battle with Democrats over documents hi to Giuliani's efforts to pressure Ukrainian leaders on behalf of the president to investigate Joe Biden. in an interview a sale confirm that he agreed yesterday to represent Giuliani a close friend and former law school classmate but he declined to offer details about their legal strategy going forward. I've just gotten involved said sales very complex we're just starting to analyze what positions we should take you understand this is compounding every single day and growing. and the president is apt to be. crossroads I would suggest you and wait there's more. senator Charles Grassley V. senior Republican in the United States Senate. she is now. going after the president for attacking the whistle blower. in a statement made today senator Grassley move to stave off attacks and the unmasking of the federal whistleblower who first divulged the president's call with Ukrainian president one that's causing all this trouble. a drop in many of his allies in Congress and outside of been working to chip away at the whistle blowers credibility well you heard what happened today. that was very clear. which was so blowers credibility. is high. and in fact again in one of those stunning moments which we talked about earlier but which is really important. there is no doubt now that the independent prosecutor believes the the whistleblower. it's it's unbelievable. four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. I want to get your comments. of the intelligence community. watch dog. the whistle blowers conspiracy. pushed by trump and by many Republicans. so today. this day the first day of October. the president of the United States is taking it on the chin. and I must tell you that there was an editorial. up from the Connecticut post a leading newspaper in Connecticut. saying this the proper step for the president it's clear he should resign. he has repeatedly proven himself unfit for office. and appears to view the presidency it as a position meant to benefit himself personally not as one that must represent the interests of an entire nation. so from one moment to the next the president is under siege and so were the people around him Rudy Giuliani. William far the secretary of state Mike Pompeii ale. they're they're taking it on the chin. so I want to ask you what you think about the development today how concerned should the president be and if you're a trump supporter I'm particularly concerned is this a deep state conspiracy going after the president. or is this a legitimate exploration of what's going on. I I asked the question because it's clear in light of the whistle blower complaint. but there's a lot coming down. and this president is the one who is feeling the heat. four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. do you understand Mike Pompeii and bill Barr. are increasingly implicated in the impeachment process. and you know what that means I mean really and truly you understand what that means. we're at the beginning of what may be a very complex. a difficult. situation. four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. that is a number here on KGO. and for those who say you're suffering from chronic fatigue. my answer is. we can't afford to suffer from from fatigue. there is too much to talk about. and you of course heard. the president's tweet. if the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office which they will never be. it will cause a civil war like fracture in this nation from which our country will never heal. that is what Donald Trump deciding. can you imagine. can you imagine style I was interested because Adam. can sing her Republican Illinois. a decorated Air Force veteran who served as a pilot in Iraq and Afghanistan. well this is what he tweeted a set I visited nations this is a Republican I have visited nations ravaged by civil war I've never imagined such a quote to be repeated by president. this is beyond repugnant. four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten you bet I want to know what you think let's go to Amy calling from napa Amy welcome to KGO in thank you for calling sure thanks for taking my call. I just you know my it's fairly simple and it's not at a camp you have any data that I'm basing this on except from what I've just seen over the last. lunch and trump has gotten in the presidency I don't think they're going to get him again on I don't think impeachment proceedings if it they might proceed actually I think it might proceed but I don't think that he will be impeached and I agree with that person who said if he is. there will be it will be awful awful consequences that's down from says but explain to me into our listeners what do you believe that to be the case. what that there will be enough people or that she will not be a teacher. I think there's too many people still that he what is the what an impeachment process would be like a witch hunt well in this one and I and I think that I think it's the same. saying that god Shrum elected I think there is forty six or whatever that percentages of people that just.

President Trump also recently signed in nineteen billion other disaster relief Bill that includes more than three billion dollars for expenses related losses of crops, including those prevented from planting, according to Charles Grassley of Iowa. Grassley said he added an amendment of the Bill to include grains, that are stored on farms in an indemnity program. They had been holding corn that burst during the floods in Iowa.

He handles in a typical year. We're trying to figure out how to make it even break even this year. Some farmers not able to plant as much as they expected took the unusual step of cancelling contracts to sell chord elevators after the harvest. It's a desperation move, according to one farmer. It's also bad news for equipment dealers like a salesman for AC McCartney who sells machinery from avocado corporation and other manufacturers, farmers will not need to use their equipment as much because they didn't plan as much.
