Trump accepts US presidency transition to Biden must begin

"Today might mark the first day of the rest of donald trump's life that is because tonight joe biden officially became president elect. And let's also be real clear. Here it's over. The president has failed in his attempt. To overturn an election result joe biden will as planned takeover as the forty six president noon january twentieth in keeping with the results of the election. Another way of putting it is. Trump's defeat became official when the woman who runs the general services administration faced with a boss. Who will not concede just tonight grudgingly agreed to officially begin the transition to the new administration in a letter to biden that avoids calling him. President elect emily murphy signed off on his transition and noted she was under no political pressure. Writing quote please know that came to my decision independently based on the lawn available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any executive branch official including those who work at the white house or gsa with regard to the substance. Our timing of my decision. I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. Her decision came just hours after election. Officials in michigan certify. Joe biden's victory. Trump posted his reaction to the news about the transition with a message. That did not sound like a concession quote. I wanna thank emily murphy at gsa for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country our case strongly continues and we will keep up the good fight and i believe we will prevail nevertheless in the best interests of our country. I am recommending that. Emily and her team do what needs to be done and have told my team to do the same tonight. The new york times reports at this way quote mr trump had been resisting any move toward a transition but in conversations in recent days that intensified monday morning top aides including mark meadows the white house. Chief of staff pat sip alone. The white house chief counsel and jay seculow. The president's personal lawyer told the president. The transition needed to begin. He did not need to say the word can see. They told him. Trump continued to solicit opinions from associates including giuliani. Who told him there. Were still legal. Avenues to pursue. This all comes after a string of losses trump and his effort to overturn the election results. Now trump's legal team is putting all their efforts in pennsylvania. Even several counties have begun to certified the biden victory earlier on this network one of trump's campaign lawyers explained the strategy here or legal strategies to make sure that every vote counts in his counted fairly inaccurately and we have timing again until december fourteenth. At least where those electors for the electoral college will vote and so our strategies to make sure that we continue to challenge all of these False and fraudulent results. The election was stolen in president trump by landslide. Okay so far. None of the election lawsuits has uncovered any fraud.

Dont Mess With Notorious RBG: How to Fight For The Supreme Court

"To this week's on one with Angela. Arrived podcast. NATORI is a CB does not have the same notoriety as notorious RPG and what is really notorious is the Senate Republicans for trying to bulldoze the traditional Supreme Court nominations process. So we have assembled an all star legal panel today that also reflects how Supreme Court should look it probably also think here to break it all the way down like a fraction are Kristen Clark President and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Christopher. Kane. Chief counsel of demand Justice Ellie Misao justice correspondent at the nation and Tina Johnson President and CEO of times up. Hello everybody. Angela. Thank you so much for being here. So I want to start with giving honor where honor is due in. That is to start with Ruth Bader GINSBURG who we lost on September. Eighteenth. I feel like she held on just as long as she possibly could end for that I say thank you. To our BG to the to the real story is and I just wanted to give you all the opportunity to share some thoughts on route Baiter ins, birds passing on her impact in jurisprudence in which he wrote some phenomenal opinions including just two words, I dissent and you know anything else on your hearts to share about that because then we're going to get into the battle that is the Supreme Court nominations but I really WanNa give her some some time just do. Well, if you're a lover of justice than you definitely are feeling this, you're feeling the loss of Justice Ginsburg on the court right now having been inside the court was always great to see her in action. She was always an active questioner questioner always asking all of the tough questions and and really pushing. The. The Orleans before her. I also think though about Thurgood Marshall and what he meant for the court and Thurgood Marshall is somebody who dedicated his career to the practice of civil rights law when he was appointed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, and justice Ginsburg frank lease the only a second civil rights lawyer to sit on the court. So right now we're at a moment where there's that void that vacancy in terms of somebody brings that lens to the issues that come before the court. So for me that really matters because we're not getting that with this nominee has been put forward. I'm. Christian I agree with you completely, I mean this this her career even before she got on the court is astonishing in all of us who are working women who are women who can sign around credit card applications and hold a mortgage in our own name and pursue our careers including. Alexis. Johnson wrote this morning you know including the current nominee to the court. We are -bility to do that to repair Berg I mean she dreamed up the idea that the equal protection clause should cover women equally as we weren't in there we were you know the kinds of. Laws kept women out of the economic life of our country. Were not challenged until she had the foresights quite frankly and the legal ability to think that up and percents that and so even before she got on the court Mike Thurgood, Marshall's she had transformed landscape forever for all of us and my dog is Getting this okay. Tina go ahead see. My my story about Ginsburg is is a personal one. So I was in high school I was on trial and a week with states or nationals whatever and one of the guest judges was at school year. And then after the thing he he gave a talk for for the kids and we got to ask questions I asked him a question and answering made fun of. I I asked him how he squared his opinions about originalist. I didn't know what was called originalism. Downing intangible whatever. But how he's wearing those opinions. Brownie. Be Bored event, which was obviously against the original intent of the founding slavers. Yet like super important right and he laughed at me and then everybody else laughed and you're like I. Don't know what they're teaching school and everybody else. A bunch of jokes and then some like really not really credible answer I would later. So he kind of any make of me dismissing it is sat down kind of embarrassed son how GINSBURG heard this story? I am magid now that since they were friends was probably bragging. Point about how? Of. This seventeen year old or sixteen year old. But anyway she's GonNa Message to remark. That was held back. Kids they keep descending. which you know is again, I didn't even realize how awesome and amazing was. Sixteen seventeen year old kid. But it really to me goes to show that at even kind of social setting in A. In a private setting as it must have been for her earth the story. The her her commitment to raising credible questions and raising the sense not backing down She lived at right and she gave me a nice little note when I was a kid. To keep trying.

New Gas And Chemical Facilities Crowd Louisiana's 'Cancer Alley'

"There's an industrial corridor in southeastern Louisiana. That people call cancer alley. It has more than one hundred and forty chemical factories and oil refineries and now there's a boom in natural gas and so industry. There is expanding so our efforts to stop it. Here's Teagan Wenlin of member station. Wwf New Orleans on a sunny Saturday. Morning I meet Sharon Levin a little tour of her neighborhood house right there terrence. Oh Great. She grew up here in rural welcome. Louisiana in Saint James Parish along the Mississippi River and most of the kids have stuck around too but now she's on a mission to stop a proposed chemical mega-complex less than a mile from her house. We drive just around a curve and see a big empty field where there's some construction underway in the distance. There's a metal fence get you see locate beggar defense back there. That silver thing is new L. shape. That's where the grapes are. That's what I saw. There used to be a plantation here so when the giant factory was approved state. Archaeologists investigated the site and found graves of enslaved people. We stopped to look. I'm pretty sure a lot of us here. Have ancestors are buried in that group in one of those gravesites? Levine's hoping the historic graves will force the company Formosa Petrochemical To Stop Building. The Taiwanese company is one of the biggest plastic manufacturers in the world. And this is a good place to build. The river provides quick access to an international port and the state offers tax breaks gave Mosa twelve million dollar grant. But Levine sees the plant as a threat to a place. She loves model Morning Coffee Back at her house which he built on family land with her husband. She describes how the rich fertile soil along. The river made for a great farming fifty years ago. It was wonderful back then. Beautiful Plan and everything Nice. My Dad grew all of our best doubles in foods. They take the vegetables to New Orleans and sell them at the French market. We had to get up early in the moment will pick low beams. I used to hate that now. Her country home is surrounded by giant factories. There are more than ten in Saint James Parish their smoke stacks forming huge clouds that cast shadows over miles. Levin thinks all of that industry is making her family and neighbors sick off. The Putin. Don't doubt we go slowly die. Her husband died of heart problems. Many of her neighbors have died of cancer. She says the air often smells bad. It's hard to link specific illnesses to certain pollutants even though Saint James Parish where she lives has an above average rate of cancer for Louisiana. Which has one of the highest rates of cancer in the country. According to an analysis by Propublica the Formosa Complex would more than double toxic air emissions here. Levin organized her neighbors to fight the plant forming a group called rise. Saint James last fall she marched with other environmental advocates all along the Mississippi River up to the capital Baton Rouge. They got lots of media coverage they delivered their demands to lawmakers no new development in the region. Matthew Block has governor John Bel Edwards chief counsel waspishly. The governor does not agree that there should be some moratorium on manufacturing facilities but his office did agree to do a small public health study. It'll survey people within a one and a half mile radius around a single plant five miles away from where living lives. There's no question that this is limited studied. It doesn't pretend to be otherwise but it's also A start in how we can start to look at these communities and whether or not there there is arisen a higher incidence of cancer and then we can make decisions from there but the study won't look at future emissions from the Formosa plant or a handful of others being built advocates. Say It's the only public health. Study the state's ever done in the region and that it's not enough. They accused lawmakers of putting profit over people's lives. The plants have brought a lot of jobs. And money says economist. Laurence Scott Nothing I've ever seen before a spokesperson for most petrochemical says the new plants in Levine's neighborhood would create twelve hundred new high paying jobs. Scott says Louisiana competes with other places for these plants and when communities like Saint James Push back? It's bad for business. One thing for sure is the larger the pushback the more expensive. It is to locate here and that is one of the factors that has to be considered when the right of return on investment here versus Texas. This tension between economic growth and health concerns has played out for years. Beverly Right is the director of the deep South Center for Environmental Justice and has advocated for people in the chemical corridor for more than three decades. It's hard for me to stay calm about this. She says they've won. A few fights stopping some plants from being built getting relocation money for an entire community in one case yet since the nineties. More and more plants have been built. I look at all of our work that we did. I mean this is my life years and watching it just being washed away and a lot of the people that we work with auditing gone now rise. Saint James is suing the US army core to stop the Formosa Plant. They've appealed to the state to revoke the permit. And they're leveraging the historic gravesites. As a reason the company shouldn't be allowed to build still as much as it pains. Her right says the best way for people in the region to protect their health. Maybe just move sitting at our kitchen table Sharon. Levin says she would never consider it. We were here first. The chemical plants tried to invade our privacy and our property. Why don't they go somewhere and not come to us? This is our home. This is not their home. She neatly packed up her flyers and the P. Con Cluster. She made for meeting tonight. She's organizing her neighbors to continue to fight. The Formosa Plant even as construction is underway. Just down the road

Trumpdates: Bolton vs. Mulvaney Goes to Court

"What is John John Bolton up to and what is Mick Mulvaney up to mick? Mulvaney tried to join a lawsuit brought by John. Bolton and another subpoenaed witness to the impeachment investigation the bulletin lawsuit is unprecedented. Unprecedented and unnecessary. It is asking a court to decide whether Bolton should comply with a congressional subpoena or whether he should follow Donald Trump's request that that he not just by John Bolton as a private citizen now lives beyond control of the president of the United States and there is no legal reason for him to evade that Subpoena Mick Mulvaney dropped his legal attempt today to join the Bolton Lawsuit After Bolton objected to Mick Mulvaney joining his lawsuit Mick Mulvaney says he will allow file lawsuits asking the same question to a judge in both cases. These are delaying tactics designed to slow down the impeachment investigation but chairman. Adam Schiff says they will not committee will not engage in a month's long legal pursuit to enforce the congressional subpoenas of these witnesses but the investigation investigation will take a negative inference from Mick Mulvaney as refusal to testify on the assumption that if Mick Mulvaney had something helpful to say about Donald Trump anything helpful to say about Donald Trump. He would testify and therefore his refusal to testify can be taken as a negative inference against president trump. The first news reports of John Bolton's memorable John Bolton's inevitable book appeared this weekend and viewers of this program new. The John Bolton was working on a book deal the day he left the trump White House since I announced it here on this program. I'm that night because it was wicked. Obvious reports indicate that John Bolton is getting a two million dollar advance from for his book from Simon and Schuster in order to get a book advanced like that the author has to tell the publisher. What the publisher is paying for what the publisher is getting? Therefore there there are people at Simon Schuster. Tonight in midtown Manhattan already know what John Bolton is refusing to tell the impeachment investigation instigation journey. Discussion is Chris. Liu who served as a senior White House aide to President Obama before that he was deputy chief counsel of the House Oversight Committee and John Holliman is back with us. Chris Lewis I want to get your reaction to this legal maneuver that we've never seen before I've got a correct congressional subpoena China. I'm going to bring a lawsuit to ask a judge what I do with it. I think it's fair to say none of this is on the level Lawrence. I mean this is the case of Mick Mulvaney wanting thing to avoid being held in contempt of Congress wanting to delay the proceedings but only willing to abide by the court's ruling if it goes in his favor and so what he's doing really is trying to serrate congressional oversight during my eight years on the House oversight committee part of it was during the Clinton administration we took depositions of senior Clinton administration aides aides. When I managed President Obama's Cabinet Eric holder testified on the hill fast and furious? Hillary Clinton testified about Benghazi. So this idea at the White House. Aides never testified is completely at odds with precedent. And if it's taken to its logical extreme it just completely wipes out Congress's ability to do any kind of oversight and let's not forget the most important point if there's any kind of executive privilege Mick Mulvaney. He's already waited. You'll recall. He stood up in that White House. Press briefing room. Any basically admitted that there was a quid pro quo so again as you correctly point out. If he had something good to say he would be out there saying right now John as we know. Oh two million dollar book advance for John Bolton means he's telling People Book Agent Book at Hers Pitching the material that he's is refusing to tell the Congress yes. I think it's likely that you and I know some of these people. If we went out with the proper implements we'd probably extract his permission them tonight. If we were hard hitting enough about it I think the question bold right now. It's tricky one. We assume let's assume the following through on the base of some of the testimony. Today it does seem as though Bolton was with those people those professionals who looked at this and said this is likely illegal it looks like golden waiting at various points in order to get that eight me released he he is. We all have for our views about job bulletins about politics ideology but it seems in this case. At least he recognize him the legal payroll that was in play here and try to do the right thing if for no other reason to save his own skin now. The question is what is economic interest in. There's two competing things here. Being a hero in this case is probably is economic interest in terms of selling books a a reading public. That thought. The did the right thing. Kim telling that story we'd probably be sell a lot of books. Unfortunately become a hero in the story requires them to testify and if he testifies it gives away some of the stuff that would be the news the book so he's got a very tricky thing to try to figure out here. How'd you land this plane? In the way that drives the most interest gives away some but not everything that he knows so the book is not drainable of its value by testimony the The book Chris quite predictably as I said the first night he when he left if the White House is scheduled for publication before the presidential election because of course if Donald Trump would lose the book value collapses. Right away But and so does a book like this to get cleared. The Way James Comey's book had to get cleared because he worked in the FBI. Since you you know since Bolton works on national security issues is there clearance process for that and can the trump administration simply refused to clear well Lawrence. There's actually two issues. One is the clearance issue shoe. If there's classified information information that might implicate classified information. That's in there. The other important thing was you'll recall trump administration officials apparently signed a non disclosure confidentiality agreement. which trump is selectively enforce or? Try To enforce against some folks including this anonymous book. That just came out and so so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I suspect John Bolton probably realizes on the non disclosure agreement that's not really enforceable it's never been enforceable against anybody and I know he's probably smart enough guy to actually at this point understand what is classified and what's not classified and we'll probably stayed abroad outlines when the book deal is introduced in court art in the Bolton Lawsuit. I'm sure the judge is going to have a a lot of even more reluctance to take the Bolton case serious. Yes that's probably right and look I think. Thank you know one of the things that Chris I think we are all under the impression that people signed these. NDA's has been claimed certainly beginning administration is through. The trump tried to get everyone to sign. I'm not sure everyone. When did side and Bolton came in relatively late to the administration so it's not clear that they were being that they were being as as rigorous about trying to get everyone to sign? NDA's and. I'm certain that John Bolton knows that it's the most the history of the world. So there's no I think that's the one is meaningless. I think the other one is our ultimate question for him in terms of the White House screening issue on on on talks about. If we're going to have to break it there. Chris Liu John Howland. Thank you both for joining

"chief counsel" Discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)

"There a spokesman for Mr. Desmond said during the confirmation process that if Desmond was confirmed, and quote, something involving Trump came up Mr. Desmond would seek advice from ethics officials. That makes sense he worked on tax issues for Trump's businesses. If Trump's taxes come up while he's the lead lawyer at the IRS and the number two official at the agency that would seem like a conflict. He should get advice. Well nail. Mr. Desmond is the IRS chief counsel. He's in that job. He got confirmed something involving the president's taxes. Most definitely has come up. Right. The treasury department. The IRS have said, no, no, no. We are not going to hand over the president's tax returns. Despite that law that says we have to question is did the IRS chief counsel, Michael Desmond ever consulted ethics officials like he promised is. He recused from matters having to do with the president's taxes. Given the fact that he advised the president's business on tax issues before his confirmation has he been recused from dealing with those things at the IRS if not how has he been involved in this decision making process, what kind of advice even giving. We don't know. So we tried to ask the IRS on Tuesday for three days. We didn't get so much as a tumbleweed blowing away from the IRS in response to our calls, which I'd calling we tried emailing. We're about to try sending smoke signals this afternoon when we finally heard back, and this is what the IRS is now willing to tell us about whether or not they're chief counsel who advised Trump's business on tax matters. Whether he is now recused for making decisions at the IRS about releasing the president's.

"The former assistant chief counsel to the Senate Watergate committee, and an assistant US attorney in the southern district of New York, David dourson, he's the author of the unexpected Scalia and Moses versus Trump a contemporary novel. And we're taking a look at further legal hurdles that are likely facing President Trump after the release at least of the summary of the Muller report. And we have a call from Joe in Topeka Kansas next on the Bohannon show. Good evening, Joe. Welcome. Your shed comments and questions for your guest. David. David an expert in tax law or campaign. He's prosecuted he's prosecuted tax law. I don't know David you tell I'm not a tax lawyer. This is the most basic concept of tax law that I can imagine. And as Jim said, I prosecuted a number of income tax cases, which I internationally one was when I was in assistant US attorney. Stormy Daniels or was it. The Trump organization Studi. There was no more. She's paid. Well, it's not a question of duty. It's a question for tax purposes of how the payment was handled, and it was a non deductible payment. You can there's no way that a payment to stormy Daniels could be deducted, but yet it's according to Michael Kuhn checks. He produced it was a conspiracy between the president and Michael Cohen, including payments in the White House. Would that were range? So they could be deducted two. Donald trump. Now, I I haven't seen the returns it's always possible that I'm this taken. But I don't believe I am interesting. Thank you for your call. Joe is a follow up to that. I suppose let's say that the Trump people say this is is false the president. In fact, made the deduction could this force the release of the president's tax returns at least met one year. Well, let me say this when I was in SIS newest attorney prosecuting tax cases, I got tax returns. There's no big deal for an assistant US attorney or US attorney's office get the tax returns of somebody under investigation. It wouldn't have to be a release the newest attorney could just get it through what a subpoena or something. Through a series of documents. It's not a subpoena because they're all part of the federal government, but you have to justify you send a memo. At least in my day to the assistant. Attorney general in charge of tax and. You got the tax returns. And then you prosecute. And if there's a trial you introduced him, and everyone sees them the judge has some control over the dispersal of the tax returns. But it's no big deal for prosecutor together tax retard to Sharon in crane, Missouri. Sharon, good evening. But evening, Kim, and Mr. Dirksen. Given the fact that Mike. Lied to congress. And given the fact that Mr. Abernathy has been arrested for trying to hurt the trait a blackmail fraud. Gain of major proportions. He gets to major corporation. Have a lot of trouble believing either one of those people's veracity, and I would have a lot of trouble believing any kind of so-called. That Mr. Cohen could produce. Well, let me say this. You have a very good point. And. Nevertheless, in many cases, the government the prosecutor is forced to use these people keep in mind with respect to Michael cone that he worked for Trump for ten years. So that he's not so much the government's problem as Trump's problem. Trump fouth form the government didn't having said that again, I congratulate you on the insight. You can't prosecute these things without corroboration and someone's going to have to explain how what reason was that. Michael Cohen got four hundred and twenty thousand dollars in installments and paid stormy Daniels a hundred and thirty thousand as I said, it's not a slam dunk. But I think it's it's it's I would call it a strong case, it would have to rely a lot more than the corroborate of Michael Cohen or the attorney, right? Right there because there are signatures by the. Exact title control treasurer, controller of the Trump organization on one of the checks. Here's a Donald junior signed on one of the check, and they have to come up with a pretty good explanation where they're not going to be helpful. And they too will have a lot of problems with cooperation. And there would be there witnesses. But this is serious business. It's a difficult business. But these prosecutors are pretty good. Well, we'll find out does Shawn who's the driving through Missouri tonight. Good evening shot. Jim. Thank you for taking my call. Sure. Your guest tonight. Several several precedents. John Edwards paid like a million dollars for his a court was proven not to be a campaign. Barnet's issue rock Obama, former president had eight hundred thousand dollar campaign issue that he paid a nominal fine for and. Yeah, what Sharon said is you're you're taking the word of a convicted felon, and and and in propagating that into into issues and and other. Now, we have other issues out there that are, you know, we have a congresswoman that has financial issues where she was in control of a pack. And and and we're not we're not. Questioning knows a lot of people are questioning that. And we'll see whether or not. Pain of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. In regard to the issue of verse where the two things that Sean brought up one had to do with the veracity of the attorney, which is more on the tax side of the issue of campaign. Finance side of the question. I've heard the John Edwards case. I hadn't heard Brock Obama brought up in that context. But the John Edwards case brought up the case, very different. But did you hear Edward's case is similar, and of course, the acquittal of Edwards is not precedent in the Donald Trump case, and you're wrong was that was the rule in John Edwards raw loves the jury. And I I just I just don't know it well enough, but he has a plausible explanation and the government had a weaker case. I believe than the president one. Because as I said, you have the treasurer who's not been indicted, and you have a longer period of time when dubbing was done and only the last minute. So those someone has a point. I am not being dogmatic. And I hope I didn't sound dogmatic. But these are the kinds of cases are tried and usually one by the government, I would say that I want all my tax cases by stay with us. One eight six six five zero JIMBO one eight six six five zero five four six two six and we haven't even left the US district of southern district of New York yet there are other jurisdictions other areas in which the president may have.

Unsealed documents show FBI began investigating Cohen long before previously reported

"Against all we don't know about the Muller investigation and a subsequent Muller report. Just today. Some newly released not commitments are revealing details about the earliest stages of the investigation into this, man. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen hundreds of pages of court documents concerning Cohen were unsealed today. It's a lot it shows Muller team started requesting search warrants just two months after Robert Muller was appointed the job and may twenty seventeen prosecutors in the FBI received permission to execute. Search warrants for Cohen's to g mail accounts and store data in his cloud account that was July August and November of twenty seventeen Muller was seeking evidence of Cohen's involvement in a number of potential crimes, including acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Violating the foreign agents registration act or Fara that first warrant specifically sought communications records documents and other files involving essential consultants LLC that's the name of the shell company that Cohen set up weeks before the two thousand sixteen election for the purpose of funneling. Hush money to stormy Daniels. Cohen was never charged with violating the foreign agents act, and it's not clear if Muller is still pursuing that particular angle, we do know that in February of twenty teen the special counsel ultimately referred quote certain aspects of the Cohen case to the Fed's New York office, otherwise known as the southern district of New York that eventually led to the FBI's April nine twenty eighteen search of Cohen's, home and office and that prompted this reaction from President Trump. Just turned that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys that man and it's disgraceful situation. It's a total which I heard it like you did I said that is really now in a whole new level of unfairness. This is the most. Bias of people. These people have the biggest conflicts of interest. I've ever see they only keep looking at us. So they find no collusion. And then they go from there, and they say, well, let's keep going and they raid an office of personal attorney early in the morning. And I think it's a disgrace to say an attack on our country sense earlier on this network of former chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary committee was asked about Trump's reaction to the Cohen search. He's always known the he is incredibly vulnerable from the that Michael Cohen has he was still at the same time writing hush money checks threat as president of the United States to reimburse Michael Cohen, the good, man. He was in the middle of a criminal conspiracy as president United States. He knew that last year. Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to tax violations lying to a Bank lying to congress and to arranging hush money payments, during the campaign to women who claim they once had affairs with Donald Trump much of the part of today's filings that deals with those payments, or what it calls the illegal campaign contribution scheme remains a mystery eighteen pages in all

"chief counsel" Discussed on KDWN 720AM

"So you were in the deposition with with James Baker the first one in Uganda with him this upcoming Thursday. What do you want to get from James Baker this week? Well, first of all remember who this is this is this is the FBI chief counsel all kinds of things flow through him. So when he says that he believes rod Rosenstein was serious about this this this alleged statement about recording the president you got to take that with the way that it comes with because it's the it's the FBI chief counsel. So we're going to ask you more about that. We our previous deposition was cut off early. We we we ran out of time. So we need him back in there where we're going to ask more about that specific meeting that took place, and then his conversations with people who were in that meeting. How those went and who all he talked to. So all those things need to be asked. And there's gonna be more breaking news tonight. We'll be breaking at nine eastern on Hannity on the Fox News channel. Now that was Jim Jordan and Mark meadows of the freedom caucus and those were their comments after they had a behind closed door meeting an interview with James Baker. We now know James Baker is under criminal investigation chief counsel to Jim commes FBI. Is deputy FBI director. We now know similarly Andrew McCabe is under a criminal investigation. And I think with the news that is going to break tonight on the Fox News channel, I think there's going to be a lot of other people that are going to be under a criminal investigation in pretty short order Suming that the new attorney general does does his job and joining us now to discuss this and much more Jim Jordan of Ohio and congressman Mark meadows of North Carolina. Welcome both of you to the program. Sean. All right. So baker. Is the chief counsel commes top attorney the FBI he's under criminal investigation. As is is deputy FBI director. And I think after tonight we're gonna find that a lot of these people are really in a lot of trouble. But let's go specifically to what are we learned in the Baker interview that you had behind closed doors? Baker. Go ahead. No, go ahead. Jim. Jim baker. Investigation. The by the US attorney in Connecticut that was news to us. There have been rumors that, but he is the subject of an investigation, we send a letter I did earlier this week to to Mr. Durham, the US attorney in Connecticut to find out what's going on here. We wanna know we think this is important information. So that's that's one of the big takeaways, and of course, the other one was that Jim Baker was getting information from a Perkins. Cu we lawyer big democrat lawyer who represents the democrat party, Mark. And so those are to being when you got the chief counsel to the FBI who is the subject of an investigation and also who got information from the Democrats lawyer at Perkins coup and took that information and gave it to the investigators at the FBI and also the guy who's now pushing for this investigation and President Trump says a lot you said in your joint letter together that we know the DOJ and FBI departed from traditional investigative and prosecutorial practices. And insufficiently adhered to the foreign intelligence service act Faiza the committee's learned that in some instances high ranking DOJ FBI officials, including the FBI general counsel James Baker, the DOJ associate deputy attorney general Bruce poor took the self-described unusual step of inserting themselves into the. Evidentiary chain of custody. And during the course of our investigation, we interviewed the former FBI general counsel Baker. And discover that your office is investigating him for unauthorized disclosures to the media and you're asking for request. Now, I'm beginning to get wind of the possibility that there is full on evidence that everybody knew what became the bulk of this application was fraudulent and that they knew what was bought and paid for and they used it. Then anyway. Never verifying corroborating and knowing its origins that would mean anybody who signed off on a committed an a conscious act of fraud against the Pfizer court. Wouldn't that be the case, Mark meadows? Well, it is a case, Sean, I think what we're seeing now is is more and more information comes out. And and Jim was exactly right. It's it's not only that you had the general counsel for the FBI. James Baker getting information from a law firm that was representing the Democrat National Committee. But it was the way that they did it even in those those interviews we found that James Baker, Bruce or they did things only in the investigation of this president that have never been done before. And so when you start to treat this president differently than all other other Americans, you know that bias is creeping in. And what we're finding is the Pedic it to the investigation to the application was not only fraudulently done, but it was fraudulently renewed over and over and over again when they knew that it was. Based on a dossier. That was not only unproven parts of it were disproven problematic. So wouldn't that be that? If if now now, I don't know how you felt about the hearings yesterday. So I had some mixed emotions. I do believe this was a witch hunt from the beginning. I think there's a lot of evidence to show that now we now know that they literally conspired at a whole cloth a conspiracy that the firing of James Comey was collusion with the president and Vladimir Putin without a shred of evidence of any anything. And that there was retribution pieces put in place and insurance policy media leaks strategy, this is after we now know that the FBI what we really have here if we're going to get to the bottom line here, we have people that hated Donald Trump. All of them. And what we had is they work together to rig the outcome of our two thousand sixteen election, fix the outcome of the two thousand sixteen election using their high positions to do. So and help Hillary Clinton get elected helper survive legally when she clearly obstructed Justice violated the espionage act and then used her bought and paid for Russian lies to hurt. Donald Trump is a candidate. And then heard him as a president which is now gone on for two years. Sean. Here's a look at who and win. So the New York Times had their big story. There blockbuster story that they said on on Friday, you got to remember the who in the win who is the people we've been talking about Andy McCabe who is under investigation. Jim Baker is under investigation and Lisa page and Peter Struck who we know what they had against the president. Those are the why aren't they under investigation? Yeah. Well, maybe they will be we don't we don't know. But those are the who. And then when did this happen it happened into his critical eight days between may ninth two thousand seventeen with Jim Comey's fired in may seventeen twenty seventeen when Robert Muller's navy special counsel. Kobe gets fired their best pal Baker McCabe struck and their best pal. Jim Kolbe gets fired. And now they're saying, oh, wait a minute. We're gonna launch an investigation into the president. We're we're gonna talk and Rottweiler. Comes in that same week, rod Rosenstein, do we also learned from Jim Bakker's deposition rod Rosenstein threatens to wear a wire to record. The president is talking about invoking the twenty fifth amendment removing the president from office. This is happening at the highest levels of art department of Justice highest levels at the FBI. And this is what is so scary. And so dangerous, and it all happened in that critical eight days people who way back the year before when they started this investigation had this extreme bias against the president. And we know that because we've seen the page and struck text messages, that's who these people had as extreme bias and two other people who were under investigation AB McCabe, and Jim Baker, by the way, two of those four people were also fired by the FBI how bad it was. When did they know about the dossier, and what did they know about the dossier because? I'm getting some information that may prove that everybody knew the dossier was false from the get-go. But that means that they consciously presented a fraud before the Pfizer court. What would that mean for everybody, including Komi, Sally, Yates, rod Rosenstein, and the rest of 'em that signed off on it. If they knew that it was false, and that Clinton paid for it, and they committed a clear fraud a conscious fraud on the court. What would that mean for the well, I think that certainly you have the potential for criminal offenses at at one case. But here's what you also have, Sean. And I think that this is is what is so troubling is the bias that went from opening up the investigation to treating Donald Trump differently. The bias that was inherent there that even went further that once they said, well, we need to cut down this this communication the way that we do that. Because Christopher Steele is no legitimate source. So. So what do they do? They went around it to the DOJ got Bruce or to actually perpetuate it. But then it didn't even end there. Sean, it went further what we believe. And what we have proof five is that that bias continued to try to imple- trait every aspect of this investigation, including and not limited to the mower destination that's going on. Now, you can you can look at some of the things that were happening back, then and different individuals certainly associated with the more investigation are tainted by that same bias. It's just problematic. Let's talk about Rx, Bruce or met with Christopher Steele in July thirtieth open the investigation crossfire, hurricane the opening investigation into President Trump at the end of July, July, thirty first we fake people. Remember? Doesn't happen application doesn't happen until October October twenty first Bruce doors are Justice department. High officials already talking with Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier clear back in time. They. And it goes it goes back, even it goes later than that too. Because remember the communications between Christopher Steele, Bruce, or where Christopher Steele is desperately trying to funnel information to Robert Muller through Bruce hor and Bruce or seemingly based on the the exchanges. We've seen wants to give Muller. The information that Christopher Steele was fired for lying and leaking to Robert Mueller without. We got prove that you're exactly right. All right. Stay right there. Well, more with Jim Jordan, Mark meadows..

"chief counsel" Discussed on KNSS

"Jay seculow chief counsel for the American Center for long Justice. Why don't we get regular updates from the inspector general last time he took eighteen months to get the information out to his credit? He's the one that found a majority of the page and struck tax now he's looking into Fiso abuse. And I've been told these also been pulled congressional requests of pushed him in other areas as well. But it seems like anything that is anti the president is out there in three seconds anything that like, for example, it's been very very slow to get information. Even today, the James Baker is been criminally investigated. Just like Andrew McCabe is under criminal investigation. I would suspect over time. If we do have equal Justice on the law, James Komi might find himself in such a position struck and page would find themselves in such a position does that seem far fetched to you? No. I think here's what's happening. You you know, these investigations is supposed to be going on. And no one's supposed to know. But these things I've been leaked and that leaking situation is out of control as you and I've been talking about for two years. But now you look back, and you said why is it taking Harwood so long? Let me tell you something. I've got I'm holding in my hand report thirteen put together of all the cases we're involved in involving all these issues. You just mentioned some of these go back to letters. We send in two thousand sixteen Sean we're just now getting the documents Horowitz, these people have lawyers the lawyers are being cautious the defense lawyers. And that's why it's taking a long time. But you gotta say the final product of what Harwich was put forward on both these issues has been very very well done. Well, again, just how long like for example tonight. I I'm gonna put up on the TV on on television. I wanna put up the names of people that I think should be under investigation. And what the crimes are that? I think that the new attorney general should be investigating. And I'm worried that if he doesn't do. Do his job completely that, you know, there's a real threat to equal Justice in this country. Nobody could have gotten away with or gotten the exoneration, you know, Hillary how lucky is she she gets a a guy to interview her that thinks that she should win one hundred million two zero. She has James call me, obviously in her court as he exonerated her in spite a was writing an exoneration long before they investigated. None of those considerations ever happened to the president just quite the opposite. You get crazy wild allegations. And even reports now that the FBI after the firing a Komi after they had already spent nine months investigating Trump Russia collusion. They're sitting around a table, basically arguing whether or not they should investigate the president portrays in with no cause whatsoever. No evidence at all just after revenge for the for the firing of Komi. Well, I mean that that whole thing so absurd because James Kobe told the president he wasn't under investigation. Peter Scott says to in an Email to Lisa page. I don't know if I'm going to go to the special counsel's office sent me. I don't think there's any there there, and he'd already been investigating it for a year. They fire James Comey to eight two days before that now beside it. It's literally a federal case and there's supposedly a counterintelligence investigation. That's why you need an attorney general to get a handle on what is actually going on. And as he said, he told Senator Ron. It sounds like, you know, more about this investigation than anybody else because there's a lot of speculating going on. But I think he's going to be a exceptional choice. He's got tremendous integrity. Look, all you want an attorney general. You wanna leader you want fairness you want the rule of law. Applies equally. That's what you want. I think it'll bar. You're going to get that. All right. I hope so we'll find out in fairly short order. I think Jay seculow chief counsel American Center for law on Justice counsel to the president. Thank you for being with us. We appreciate your time. As always later on. We're going to check in with Carter page in the program considering now that the issue of FIS ab- is back in the forefront. Also, our friend pastor Daryll, Scott is gonna join us about an urban revitalization. Coalition plan that they have and we'll go over that in great detail a much more straight ahead. Hey, you're listening to the.

And I'm worried that if he doesn't do his job completely that, you know, there's a real threat to equal Justice in this country. Nobody could have gotten away with or gotten the exoneration Hillary how. Lucky is she she gets a a guy to interview her that thinks that she should win one hundred million two zero she has James Komi, obviously in her court as he exonerated her in spite a was writing an exoneration long before they investigated. None of those considerations ever happened to the president just quite the opposite. You get crazy wild allegations. And even reports now that the FBI after the firing Komi after they had already spent nine months investigating Trump Russia collusion, they're sitting around a table, basically arguing whether or not they should investigate the president for treason with no cause whatsoever. No evidence at all just after revenge for the for the firing of Komi. Well, I mean that that that whole thing so absurd because James Kobe told the president he wasn't under investigation. Peter Scott says to in an Email to Lisa page. I don't know if I'm going to go to the special counsel's office me. I don't think there's any there there, and he'd already been investigating it for a year. They fire James Comey to eight two days before that. Now, the sudden it it's literally a federal case and there's supposedly a counter intelligence investigation. That's why you need an attorney general to get a handle on what is actually going on. And as he said, he told Senator Ron. Sounds like, you know, more about this investigation than anybody else because there's a lot of speculating going on. But I think he's going to be a exceptional choice. He's got tremendous integrity. Look, all you want an attorney John you wanna leader. You want fairness you want the rule of law applied equally? That's what you want. I think bar you're going to get that. All right. I hope so we'll find out in fairly short order.

"So getting him out of New York was going to be very complicated in the case of some kind of John carpenter scenario up until the Obama administration every US president from the construction of the Waldorf Astoria to the present or two. Two thousand fifteen every president stayed in the presidential suite at the Waldorf Astoria, including Obama early on in his presidency. But then the hotel was purchased by the Chinese, and there was some secret service fear that the Chinese government would have infiltrated the hotel, and and what would be using bugged like the like the eighties era embassy in Moscow. That's right. They got in there, and we're gonna use cyber hacking on the president. And so he he was the the last president to stay at the Waldorf. Because now the minibar has has Chinese surveillance, Scott he did touch the Pringles peanut Eminem us nine dollars. So I think given that George Bush had that escape plan in place, and that locomotive idling on track sixty one I think there is quite a bit of suspicion that it remains an active an active, stop, not only for presidents, but perhaps for the wealthy few anybody with the money, I guess, right? It used to be very popular to have a private train car. And in fact, when I was a kid. Yes. It was popular when you were going to have a private train car. Well, no. But I have ridden in a private train whose many times my father in the nineteen. Seventies was the chief counsel of the Alaska railroad, which at the time was a federally owned railroad. But not connected to the federal system. The Alaska railroad was run by the department of transportation. And my dad was the chief legal officer. And the the last railroad had a private train car that dated to this era. It had bedrooms and a big living room and a balcony on the back, and they would connect it to a train if an executive basically, the president of the railroad or my dad wanted to go somewhere along the railroad. So he had he would have it. I mean, this is a different time. But he would have this car brought up and connected to the train, and we would go on official business up to Fairbanks or whatever. And it would be my dad me and my sister in this did it secretly pull up underground under the Fairbanks federal building. There are no undergrounds in Alaska because it's frozen. It's permafrost, but it's beautiful war for us. It's a wonderful experience. And this thing was was kitted out in top nineteen forties technology, which then seemed pretty amazing black and white TV in them and a phone that went ringing Dane, so I know that there are lots of world transit systems that have disused trains and train platforms like this right in London. I know if if you ever watch a movie or a episode of Sherlock or whatever that set in London if there's ever a tube station. It's almost certainly Aldwych station, which was I think shut down in the early twentieth century. And since then we'll during the war. It was an air raid shelter, and they all the art galleries would put there are there during the blitz and today, it's just where you know, v for vendetta shoots. It's right. It's train scenes because it's it's tailor made for a film crew without shut anything down. It's kind of inevitable when you're building a mass transit system that over time certain stations will become disused, and I think in the popular imagination. It's because those stations have low ridership, but in most cases, it's actually like in New York. There are a dozen or more subway stops that are abandoned they're still there. They never got repurpose. There's those they're still there. But the reason isn't that they have low ridership. It is that as they expand other stations. They're deemed just to proximate, right? So they don't want the train stopping every one hundred and fifty feet, and as you know, as Broadway and Lafayette grows..

Third person. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. It's a third person. So you can watch this now. On download or on our site.

Fortunately, have other live streams, but you can't watch you to it tweak on it. You can't watch our floss coverage. You can't watch anything on YouTube live from twit. It bothers me a little bit. But there's nothing to do about this life. It bothers me. Yeah. Doesn't as a journalist. Seems. So I mean, maybe the argument is well is that fair use you showed? We did we do show it in its entirety. So that's one of those three tests with fair use one of them is the amount that was used and we do show in its entirety. But it's a it's mystery science theater three thousand were sitting. Fiske's we say in blogs, Fisk you named after Robert Fisk who bloggers didn't like early on. And you would you would take the entire column wrote and paragraph-by-paragraph respond to all the boys. So you ended up repeating the entire column, but. We'll have to every point. That's we'll have to do to Fisk it next time, or I'm gonna use puppets, extremely unflattering puppets. No, just kidding. Really? The funny thing is you say, it's third party.

They've always been ancillary to our own broadcast in our streams in our downloads. Do we talk about white genocide? I think we did. I'm. Okay about missing it. So did you see the intercept was able to buy ads on Facebook? Targeted at people who were interested in white genocide is this the idea of what what is people killing white people is that what? The fear that we will white people will be killed white race is going to be destroyed. Okay. Yeah. These are those people, it's any semitic. It's anti immigrant. And Facebook said we're not gonna do that earlier this week the intercept Sam Biddle writing for the internship was able to select white genocide conspiracy theories a predefined detailed targeting criterion. Facebook say there one hundred sixty eight thousand users you're going to get here's here's the actual. And by the way, your ad is approved. Well, let me say two things to this. If I may. One is yet. Listen listed data society, automatic air. People are making up new phrases like in-cell all the time and the systems are a step behind. Right. So white jet aside was was a key to to to evil kingdom that the bad guys put out there. And then they populate things online. And it's a strategy.

What Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal Means for David Pecker

What Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal Means for David Pecker

"We have more breaking news now this from the Wall Street Journal, confirming question just raised before we went to this commercial break. The Wall Street Journal is reporting tonight that David pecker the chairman of American media Inc which publishes the National Enquirer provided prosecutors with details about payments. Mr. Cohen, arranged with women who alleged sexual encounters with President Trump, including Mr. Trump's knowledge of the deals joining our discussion now, Barbara mcquade a former federal prosecutor. She's a professor of law at the university of Michigan and MSNBC legal contributor, Harry Lipman former federal prosecutor and deputy assistant attorney general under President Clinton. And Ron Klein is with us former senior aide to President Obama and a former chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary committee. I saw David Kay Johnston there, but someone left him out of my little teleprompter here. David Johnston Pulitzer prize. Is winning reporter who is running the organization DC report dot org, which studies the Trump investigation Barbara mcquade I to you this information just reported by the Wall Street Journal that David Packer who was clearly identified in yesterday's proceeding of Michael Collins. Guilty plea is now it's confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. He is already cooperating with the prosecutor and had already cooperated with the prosecutor before they even made that presentation yesterday, which seems to make sense when you read every part of that presentation. This is very significant news. I think because I think one of the scepticisms of what Michael Cohen had to say is just. You know, he's talking out of his own self interest. You would need to corroborate what he's saying with other witnesses and now to have David pecker someone who is speaking against his own self interest to have provided that information I think is strongly corroborative. And if as you said he implicates President Trump as well. This is really a huge development is not just Michael Cohen with an ax to grind trying to save his skin. It's now corroborated by two witnesses, and chances are they've got documentation that supports that as well. So very significant piece of news there claim the president today telling Fox News, something kind of about his knowledge of the payments when he was asked about, did you know about the payments? He said later later we have no idea what that was supposed to mean. But here's David pecker according to the Wall Street Journal saying that President Trump was part of arranging the payments and that the President Trump had knowledge of the deals and knowledge of the deals being arraigned. That's right. Lawrence. I think your introduction made such important point, which is we know so much more about this today than we did yesterday, but to paraphrase Bill pops on, but not half as much as we're gonna know tomorrow. I mean. Robert Muller knows a lot of things. We don't know yet thousands, tens of thousands of pages for Michael Cohen's office months of investigation. It's starting to come to light. Now, the scope of it is is really quite stunning, but but there's still a lot here. We don't know. All we do know is it's going to point a very bad direction for the president. He clearly lied to the American people. He clearly lied anyone who he talked to about it and and you know, we don't have to witnesses crops and the fact they directed people to commit a crime. That's very serious piece of business with a lot of unknown stuff. Still out there. David, Kate Johnston, you've been falling following Donald Trump and his circle for longer than any of us. I think the easiest prediction you could have made for us tonight is that of course, David pecker is going to cooperate with federal prosecutors Wall Street Journal has beat us to even making it as a prediction. They've got it as already underway. Well, in other people are going to step forward. Now, Donald always been able to beat back law enforcement, beat back grand. Jury's compromise people get people to corrupt things in the government to advance his interests. And now all these other people, understanding Donald Trump is only loyal to Donald are going to start abandoning him. And this is a dangerous time for our country because Donald's Radic behavior is likely to become much much more erratic. He's going to have a lot of internal conflict over this because remember in his delusional mind, he is greater than all of us where idiots were stupid..
