Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you
New information adds to questions about Russia probe dossier
"Two Republican senators have released footnotes from the justice department inspector general report that raises the prospect that Russian dis information made its way into the Steele dossier opposition research by former British spy Christopher Steele against Donald Trump before the twenty sixteen election the FBI relied on that information when obtaining warrants to eavesdrop on a former trump campaign adviser Carter page despite being warned there were questions about the dossier's accuracy and the potential it contained Russian disinformation the FBI did not use the dossier when it opened the Russia investigation twenty sixteen but the FBI director is being asked to provide all the intelligence records that were used Jackie Quinn Washington
"christopher steele" Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior
"That Putin's Darth vader was running Donald Trump's campaign and her hair was on fire telling anybody that would listen including Republicans so manafort coons operative and Ukraine was paid a ten million dollar a year contract track starting in two thousand six to further the Kremlin's interest and Ukraine and the West and business and media. So this was pretty big deal when he came over and it was stunning to see. Just how unprepared American media were at the time and the FBI. Just didn't Bob does anything. Yanukovych fled Ukraine in February February. Two thousand fourteen. He was overthrown in rare popular uprising. That was successful. Ukraine invited the FBI in to investigate to find the tens of billions of dollars that Yanukovych Sannikov agendas family stole from Ukraine people. If you're investigating UNA Kovic you're investigating the people around him including Manafort. Who was a longtime consultant? Who worked for for a decade or so yet? Coach built himself aver Siamak mansion complete with a private zoo a massive car collection a golf course sprawling marble halls paid for with stolen tax dollars the investigative journalists who helped expose his lavish lifestyles wells. The lifestyle of of some of his cronies. She was ran off the road one night at the end of December number and beaten and left for dead. Her face was so swollen. You couldn't recognize her anymore. That is what manafort aided he was an instrument of Kremlin aggression spreading the chroma corruption by helping consolidates power whether it's in Ukraine or in the United States who trump and his friends so manafort also represents the fact that the Kremlin clearly thinks that Russia is allowed to influence the domestic affairs of other countries but no one else can only Russia and if you dare to do that in Russia for instance they're going to retaliate. They're now calling. Any bloggers are journalists that have been paid by companies based abroad as foreign agents in his meeting with President Dolinsky of Ukraine in Paris. This week guten towards Alinsky. He needs to change his constitution. Okay that's how brazen Putin is so on. Ski Of course laughed. TROLLING PUTIN SO Russia gets to go in and dictate meddle title and attack other countries democracies but if Western states stand united against human rights abuses in Russia by for instance passing them. And that's outrageous. It was enough for Hillary Clinton Express Express support for protests against Putin in the twenty twelve election in Russia for Putina. Hold a grudge against her. So Putin can metal no one else can do anything that he deems meddling including including supporting a strong independent media and anti-corruption performers. So this is all significant because when I G report came out saying that intelligence agency had every right to investigate a Russia's influence on the two thousand sixteen election it's connections the trump campaign trump fires fires back by projecting what it was he actually was doing at the time with his quote. This was an overthrow of government. This was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in in on it and they got caught. They got caught red-handed trump literally. Sounds like he's describing the Miller report or any other stuff that's coming on the Patriot inquiry. What trump just said is what manafort was paid? Hey tens of millions of dollars to do by all Adere Pasta and oligarch that's close to Putin what is really troubling. IS THAT AG bar. Who is Tom Hagen? And he's the mafia constantly for the trump crime family and the worst of the Republican establishment has been for decades bar came out attacking the IGA report art and then his little white supremacy looking henchman. Durham broke protocol by attacking it as well what they're doing is they're intimidating imitating all the good people left all the strong patriots left across our intelligence agencies basically telling them if you dare to hold the trump crime family accountable bowl in any way if you dare to leak if you dare to begin any investigation that even based on credible intelligence if you dare to follow up with any information provided you by any foreign foreign intelligence service of our allies from Australia to the UK and so forth. If you dare to do that we will come after you so understand that we have this massive intimidation what's going on in plain sight by the attorney. General who's really a Mafia lawyer and by his henchmen. If you go back to that Lisa page interview that was incredibly powerful in the daily only beat by molly young fast. Lisa page laments. What has happened to her beloved DOJ? Well what happened to your beloved. Doj is what happens in a lot of WANNA be authoritarian turn states with these wannabe autographs at the helm the institutions get purged and. It happens very very quickly. Institutions are only as strong as the people well in them. And if you purge those good people and fill them with latkes. The rule of law suffers democracy suffers. And that's where we are now so speaking of the Inspector Inspector General report should we discuss the new revelation about Christopher Steele which Threw me for a loop and his pen pal. Ivanka trump yeah so Christopher Steele is best known for writing the quote unquote steele dossier. The documents that were leaked to buzzfeed in January twenty seventeen nineteen which reference the infamous alleged P tape? We have now learned that Christopher Steele has had a relationship with Ivanka trump nearly a decade decade before he was hired by Republicans who are working with fusion. GPS to examine the trump campaign. And just a little recap of seals feels findings when seals doing that research for fusion. GPS which was eventually used by the Democrats. He was horrified by what he found. especially his primary. Hi Mary contention that trump had been cultivated as a Kremlin asset since at least two thousand eleven steel spoke anonymously with David Corn of Mother Jones. Who wrote an article? That came out on Halloween 2016. That article was published at how we met. That is how you when I met is true that that is the night that Andrea and I first interacted because I went out trick or treating with my kids came back and my timeline look like a John mccrea novel and Andrea and I both were like like. Wow so there's someone else out there who heard that trump had some kind of disgusting Illicit sex in Russia that has been taped and we'll possibly absolutely be released to the world. So yeah the beginning of a beautiful. That's what I tweeted. I tweeted trump sex tape launching the HASHTAG trump sex tape and Sarah popped MIDEM's and and our lives have never been the same. Yeah it's really really beautiful. Trump's estate manafort mafia schemes. That's what that's the bonds of an enduring friendship right there. So you know David Koren publishers. This article meanwhile the New York Times is publishing a bunch of propaganda about how the FBI says that trump has nothing to do with. Russia wasn't investigating which we know is a total ally. Steel was also horrified allegedly by that New York Times article since then. Steel has largely been in seclusion. There have been a number of reports that his life has been threatened and all that time the information about his relationship with vonk trump was kept secret as. Oh here's a summary of what that relationship entailed. According to the Inspector General's report quote steel called the allegation that he was biased against trump. From the start start ridiculous. He stated that if anything he was favourably disposed toward the trump family because he began his research because he had visited a family member. At trump tower it had been friendly with a family member for some years. He described their relationship as quote personal and said that he wants gifted a family Tartan from Scotland to to the family member and so now we know the family member in question was Ivanka trump. who had at that time? Hit Up Steel to work with the trump's on their business business Interests Aka there mafia activity which still did not do but the two of them stayed in touch. This relationship started around two thousand seven which replace it right after a Vonk had flown to Moscow with mobster turned sometime. FBI informant turned mobster again. Feel acceder right after manafort. A four moved into trump tower in two thousand. Six right after Alexander Litvinenko the Russian dissident and former intelligence member was poisoned to death in the UK. Okay also in two thousand six. That was a case that Christopher Steele in his capacity as an intelligence officer was examining and this was also right when vodka in Don Jr.. We're getting more involved. In trump family real estate money laundering schemes most notably trump tower. Soho for which she and Don Jr. ear where nearly indited for Felony Fraud in two thousand twelve until their family lawyer gave a hefty donation to the campaign of Sivan's who was overseeing the a case. That's a lot of information but I want to know what exactly was going on here. You know there are a lot of theories out there The main one that seems plausible commute each possibly trying to honey trap each other that if steel is investigating the KGB the Russian mafia their incursion into the western states the trump family would be of interest they were just in the Kremlin. Ivanka was just spinning around. In Putin's chair I mean that's an actual thing that happened. They they were working with Mafia affiliated actors like Felix Cedar. Meanwhile Ivanka would be interested in steel she would be interested in compromising him. Ivanka is not this. Innocent actor or the sideline character that people like to portray her as she and jared have been central to crime family activity from the beginning and she was trained to continue to carry out this operation. As I've said many times this is the pattern of kleptocracy is to put the family into executive power. You put the family in the business you put the family in office it. It keeps the money flowing and you also use your younger family members. The ones who are more amenable to the media to gloss over what is a criminal endeavor at that time time. That's what the apprentice was doing. That is what Ivanka was doing on the apprentice. She was an assistant with no particular role much as she's an assistant with no particular role all in the White House and her real role is to gloss over these trump crime family endeavors. And she's now I think failing at that but it certainly worked back in two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen the media blew off this threat anyway. What are your thoughts on this relationship? Vonk trump like you said. She's very much which involved in this crime family. She's a pillar of it. She's the the favorite child as we know The endgame of this is to make vodka trump trump the first woman president using the same coalition of corruption. That's Dole the election originally for her father so it with Donald Trump does step down. Eventually I think they're going to pull all the punches out to steal this next one because they need to. So he doesn't get indicted and throw prison and the Kremlin aides to avoid sanctions so the stakes have never been higher for them and Laverov RAV visiting trump. This week is very much a strategy session to that. You know certainly in that direction without question because the impeachment a crisis for the trump crime family is heating up. Public opinion is changing this is excellent. TV everybody loves a good crime drama and that is what as we always said from the beginning being. That's why we need impeachment hearings because everyone loves a good crime drama but vodka trump the fact that she's always escaped accountability and she doesn't get the same scrutiny. I mean she was running being the transition team which Mike Flynn said. The trump transition team told him to reach out to the Russian ambassador. Mike Flynn gets into criminal liability there but Ivanka trump doesn't even though she's the leader so there's some weird Misogyny at play where Yvonne could trump being the right kind of woman right. She has that non-threatening little kitten hitting tone of voice. She wears high heels. She dresses like a Barbie. She basically has trained herself to always appear a certain way very clearly to win her father's approval and affection. She's always seen as the operator that has her father wrapped around her finger And she very much lives by the trump rand. I read somewhere that when on her parents were divorcing. Ivanka was really crying distraught over whether or not that meant she should have to lose the trump last name. She's her father's daughter. She's it's all about branding. I I think in one of her ghost written books. There's a line about how perception is stronger than truth. That's how the operate they're just a house of cards..
"christopher steele" Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior
"We're putting out. There isn't a fringe opinion. This idea that we should continue investigating investigating continue holding hearings in the House and not immediately passed these articles to the Senate John. Dean for example has said the same thing because the goal all should be transparency. The goal should be rooting out corruption. The goal should be preserving election integrity. It should be delivering the truth the full truth to the American doc in public because they deserve it. You deserve the truth you know don't settle for crumbs. There's this mentality now. Because the public has been relentlessly abused by the trump administration and to some extent much lesser extent but still by the Democrats who have played down a lot of these atrocities who have refused to follow through on investigations who've been apathetic to a lot of human suffering particularly that of migrant children on the border and other crimes against humanity people are exhausted people are battered down and when that mentality sets in a lot of bad things happen you see. Colts emerged urge personality. Cults you see Save Your Syndrome emerge where you're just waiting for someone to swoop in and rescue you and you also see mentality of settling of settling for less us than you deserve but don't subtle subtle the score. That is what we need to do as a country. All right and you talk about manafort yet this. I always want to doc. I will sum up briefly. What happened yesterday big day so there are certain topics that we always come back to the show and one of the main ones is crime machine? Jean Paul Manafort and not just because he is obsessed with Andrea sister. Who is Alexandra Chalupa for the Bro Journalists Listening to the program so Manafort Manafort is at the heart of the criminal hijacking of American democracy and we urge you to listen to the earliest gasoline nation episodes from two thousand eighteen when we discuss our or mutual horror back in two thousand sixteen? That manafort was selected as trump's campaign manager and this is part of what drew Andre Together and sew Monday was I know it's very very romantic. My name was a significant day because what we have long asserted on gasoline nation was confirmed by the new report by the Inspector General for the DOJ which is that Manafort was under FBI investigation. Not only in July twenty sixteen as has been publicly stated needed but before he became trump's campaign manager in the spring of two thousand sixteen. This is not surprising as Manafort's dirty deeds date back decades but it does yet again. Raise the question of why the F. B. I.. Allowed a compromised money launderer to run a campaign for trump. Who is himself? A Mafia Africa and Kremlin associate thus enabling both of them access to classified intelligence and a road to executive power that puts the very sovereignty cindy of our country in jeopardy so Andrea. What are your thoughts on that? All of this was in the public domain. And I just don't understand why hi the FBI. Like where was James. Combs press conference on the fact that the FBI was investigating Donald Trump's campaign chairman for money laundering tax evasion. And why was he going after. Hillary Clinton who smartly had her own private server because the United States government was getting deeply hacked by authoritarian. Teheran regimes like China and Russia and their which was a major national security breach so hillary Clinton was vindicated with her private server and yet had James Comey with his documented. Misogyny called her out on this and yet refused to inform the American public. that a Kremlin operatives who was under investigation for money laundering tax evasion was was managing the campaign of a man that was getting closer and closer to winning the White House. The ridiculous thing is just all of this news. That's been coming out since we've launched the show. We are demanding with every episode of gasoline nation. That there needs needs to be an investigation of how American intelligence agencies let it get to this point in the first place because if you were relying lying on the American people to save the day the ballot box in two thousand sixteen. Then why did you not take into account that there was a sweeping PSI diop's campaign being waged against the American people. When all of this was going on you had in the Brexit vote for instance Brexit was the warning? Shot that the Kremlin fired the Kremlin had one hundred and fifty thousand twitter accounts driving the Brexit. Vote helping tip the scales in that corrupted brexit. Vote look at what what's going on in in the US you had militarize propaganda from Cambridge Analytica and on top of that manafort partner Rick Gates he brought in a science organization. This this was all going on. When American intelligence agencies apparently thought that the the American voters would save the day and they didn't have to do anything they could just succumb to their own misogyny and arrogance thinking that they could attack Hillary Clinton relentlessly and try to humiliate her during two thousand sixteen? Meanwhile right in front of their faces in plain sight site to promote his book ahead of its launch. You had this massive sweeping criminal operation that was relying on new technologies like militarized propaganda across all social media media channels that American companies launched. This was a massive intelligence failure. If we somehow avoid deepening this essential threat of of where we are now. And with the Democrat winning the White House and twenty twenty that Democratic president that administration must must must order an investigation into how US US intelligence agencies failed so badly against metaphor and Putin's operation to bring their asset to power in two thousand sixteen is stealing this election Senate and subverting our democracy yes absolutely and it's frustrating to me that within the candidates in all of the debates and discussions around this race. We're not not seeing discussion of this in forthright terms. I think Warren is the closest when she talks about corruption when she talks about Kleptocracy and in our relationships with other authoritarian states who are not only hostile to their own people but who have hijacked our own democracy and pose a danger in that respect act but there should be if we're not going to get hearings on this which apparently some of the Democrats don't WanNa do think some do want to do that. So hopefully they'll still go in that direction but if we're not going to get hearings. We need debate. We need answers. We need to remove this sort of untouchability of the intelligence community. It is clear there are fractures within it. It's clear that there is an enormous fracture within the FBI in two thousand sixteen where you saw. Experts on the Russian mafia people like like Lisa page doing their job trying to save this country and immediately are purged after and then you have operators like Komi talking out of both sides of their mouth and then you have what appears like a contingent linked to Rudy Giuliani. Who are helping move? This long helping trump ascension to power through through illicit means. And then if you look at that historically you see a number of former FBI directors including Louis Freeh and William sessions who went on to represent the Russian mafia and the main Russian mobster to whom they are connected is Semyon mcgilla bitch whose name POPs up over and over again. He is linked to do the criminal. Maxwell Family d'alene Maxwell who was Epstein partner like there is a network here there is as I've said a billion times a transnational it crime syndicate and it is not only infiltrated and influenced our own government but other governments around the world has just said with Brexit and people. Just keep deep beating around the Bush with this. I think some of it is. They're frightened. I think many people are threatened. I think it's incredibly overwhelming and confusing and believe of me. I have sympathy for everybody trying to tackle it because we have on the show and also independently for years and there is so much I do have a book coming out in in April. Twenty twenty called hiding in plain sight. It is a sliver of what is out there you know. It's an overview of the last forty years but honestly we need an encyclopedia. Hiya of crime like we need like you know books that show up once a month like dealing with each participant that is the extent of this network and the magnitude of their crimes. Like imagine if you had an entire book just about Manafort and everything that you know all the shit you got up in over the last forty years like it's immense. It is very frustrating frustrating and of course it's frustrating as you just said before that this was in the public domain your sister was the canary in the coal. Mine going out and telling everybody. Hey Hey Paul. MANAFORT is the Kremlin operative and a mafia associate perhaps shouldn't be running a presidential campaign and instead was targeted did herself and not protected and dismissed and this is just an ongoing pattern and while honestly I was frustrated back in two thousand sixteen that so few seem to should be catching on to this but it was new. It was an unprecedented crisis for our country but it is three years later we have had hearings. We have had had expert testimony. We've even had people from the inside. People like Michael Cohen who are involved in the crime. Come out and tell everybody like yeah guys like it's the mafia and you know what what else trump's not going to step down in two thousand twenty maybe get prepared for that. You don't hear forthright discussion about this. Almost anywhere you get maybe a few soundbites. Yes and that just does an enormous service to the American public because again this is about the public this is not about institutions and this is not about individuals also at least in terms of preserving their greatness. You need to earn the People's trust so Put up or step down. If you're wondering how we got got to this point how. Ivanka trump and jared Kushner are the de facto President United States how this assembly of autocrats consolidating pollinating their power and basically trying to live above any accountability from Erta one to Putin and so forth. We got here because simply put Savior Syndrome. If if things are really that bad somebody must be doing something about it and a really great sort of case study. That should've warned us. That could have gotten this bad with a Russian mafia acid in the White House. Is the story of Harry. macropoulos a forensic accountant. Who tried to warn anyone who would listen that? Bernie Madoff Bernie madoff one of the wizards of wall. Street's when most powerful men on Wall Street was a giant Ponzi scheme no one would would take Harry more Coppola's seriously and he was somebody that was incredibly passionate very much in the weeds in pulling together. Yeah they're all this information and and he had all this damming information and the numbers don't add up and and Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme but to say Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme is to say that Donald Trump is a Russian mafia asset and twenty. Sixteen people about that. You are crazy people about that. Your conspiracy theorist this is just another cautionary tale. That if Bernie made off is really a Ponzi scheme certainly somebody somewhere would be doing something about it certainly the SEC or the US government or somebody would step in and stop this. This shouldn't be on little Harry Markopoulo. A father of three and just a forensic accountant all beyond him to stop greatest Ponzi schemes in human history. No and so. That's what this comes down to is. The world is being destroyed because everyone just assumes that somebody else's saving it that's why Andrea and I are always encouraging you stand up for yourselves. Stand up for each other as Andre always says find your community build an activist service movement. No one is coming. There isn't going to be a magical fix even if by some miracle say trump is impeached. Any is removed you're still still dealing with the GOP. The packing of the courts the entrenched corruption the purging of agencies the gutting of institutions that we need like the State Department Department. You're still dealing with the Kremlin you're dealing with Saudi Arabia. You're dealing with this Trans National Crime Network. These are enormous problems and then add on top of those income inequality quality hoarding of wealth by Leeds. Job Loss all the social ills that we live with every day. And we shouldn't have to. You know if you need motivation. Asian you know. Look at kids. Look at the world that they've grown up in look at how they see this as just normal daily life and to some extent. I'm kind of glad that kids don't have this Savior Syndrome. I'm glad that you know when I talked to children not just mine. I'm not trying to work my own children but honestly when I talked to kids they see a lot of issues where clearly they see. Climate change more clearly and they see that trump is a lunatic more clearly. They're not saying he's going to pivot. They're not saying there must be a secret plan. They're like Holy Shit like that guy is obviously nuts like at the least he's not in his right mind and so oh you know my hope for the future to some degree lies on people. Adopting the clarity of mind that you'll find in a child or a teenager who isn't isn't sentimental who doesn't have false expectations and who often isn't afraid because they don't know enough to be afraid but it is our job as adults to protect. Act these kids to protect the future. The future is an endangered commodity. And it's up to us to try to preserve it and that's why we bother with with this like we don't bother with this show or all the things we do because we think all hope is lost and that we are doomed it is the opposite. We are persevering and we're persisting in are oftentimes annoying to some people commitment. She bringing the truth to the public and to digging deep into everybody's corruption into everybody's sins against this country and trying to make them right because you can't fix problems that you won't expose. I WANNA walk through so in in lead up to Christopher Steele I g report that just came out. I WANNA walk through. Just to sorta hit home for everybody. The public domain richness of Paul Manafort crimes. There it is out there there for anybody to write about yell about is want to walk through. Just a bit of a timeline And then we'll go into the big Christopher Steele News and his interesting relationship with vodka trump so the revolution Ukraine begins at the end of November in peaceful demonstrations at then turned violent when government riot police start beating protesters in early December. I tweeted about Paul Manafort. This December twenty thirteen my first tweet about manafort. And that he was advising He's a Republican operative that was advising victory on a Kovic. That's significant because this was this just underlines that this was in the public domain and you my sister's being hounded by Republicans relentlessly. They're they're terrorizing her. They're trying to equate her as you've always say that. She some deep state operatives like how the Hell Did she know that Paul Manafort was such a bad guy will look at my Tam tweet from December for twenty thirteen. That was Paul Manafort's wikipedia page that I tweeted out. That's how my sister knew before. She came into this to try to alert everyone..

"From a country Norway. We have information on your owner. I think I'd wanna hear you want that kind of interference in elections not interfere. Have information? I think I'd take it if I thought there was something wrong, maybe to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with apple research, right? They come up with a research. Oh, let's grow the FBI. I doesn't have enough agents to take care of you Bill and talk. Honestly, congressmen, they all do they always have. And that's the way it is. It's called upo research. And this is what the Democrats are going crazy over. Of course. Nancy Pelosi once again, reiterating this is criminal conduct. This is something you cannot do. The law says you cannot accept information that it's, including in-kind contributions, not just cash, but anything value including information. You can't do that. But I didn't recall hearing Nancy Pelosi I didn't recall hearing any one of the prominent Democrats both on Capitol Hill and in newsrooms or studios around the country because they're one in the same. And I know I'm, I'm kind of redundant there. But, but intrusive you walk into Nancy Pelosi's, office, you might as well be walking into the news directors office CNN, you walk into the news directors office at CBS news. And you might as well be walking into, you know, AOC's office. I mean they are all working together in collaboration coordination and dare. I use the dirty word collusion with one another and trying to undo the president of the United States victory in two thousand sixteen. So now, having said, all of that, here's what we're talking about. They're saying that President Trump is signaling China and Russia among others to send him information to try and harm his opponent. Whoever it might be in the next election. This is what they're alleging right that the president is signaling foreign adversaries. I want you to consider for just one second. Why on earth would the governments of China red, China and Russia, consider doing something to aid Donald Trump? In getting four more years of office, considering what Donald Trump has done to them in just over two. Donald trump. Has expelled dozens of Russian diplomats from their embassies here in the United States. He has doubled and tripled sanctions against the Russians for various crimes and misdemeanors. He has instituted tariffs, and what has become something of a trade war against China, harming the Chinese economy by telling them, we will not accept this extraordinary trade, imbalance, any longer something that China doesn't wanna hear because China likes the trade imbalance, because they're on the plus side. We're on the negative side there in the black were in the red. When it comes to the trade imbalance, why would shaina and Russia of all nations, who, aren't you try to help Donald Trump by providing him apple research, on whomever, his opponent might be. That's number one, the ignorance, the stupidity that the lunacy of the left to suggest that, that would be where this goes the second part about this. Is equally mind blowing. The Democrats are complaining that the president said he would accept information if he would listen to information that might have been suggested that would come to him in the form of research about an opponent, even if it came from a foreign source George dot com to do that. Why would you do that says you can't do that at cetera et cetera? The Democrats didn't just wait for research to come to them on Donald Trump. They went out and tried to find it. And when it couldn't find that they hired foreigners to manufacture it. I want you to consider this is not conjecture any longer. This isn't a fact. That is not yet confirmed this, the Steele dossier, the Trump dossier compiled by steel phony, fraudulent misleading. Just filled with falsehoods about Donald Trump was bought and paid for by two sources the one that's still subject of conjecture would be the third source, but the two that are not the subject of conjecture that are confirmed, the Clinton campaign paid for that dossier and the DNC the Democratic National Committee paid for that dossier. Right. The only one that's not confirmed yet. But it is suspected is that the FBI. The criminally corrupt if BI then under the leadership of James Comey, fired Andrew McCabe fired struck and page. And so until fourth either fired over resigned, the, the FBI, which was behind taking this dossier to the FIS accord for the purposes of spying. The Trump campaign, I want you to consider all of the above and consider the sources the information that they use quote unquote, apple research. That was comp- contained within that thaw. CA came from a British former spy Christopher Steele, who gathered his information from Russian sources. It's double jeopardy. You've hit the

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan says Mueller report shows no collusion
"President Trump down in Florida yesterday about to head to the golf course. Couple thumbs up mostly quiet though this weekend. But we're joined now by one of his top defenders in the house, the top Republican on the house oversight committee. Jim Jordan, congressman. Thank you for joining us your best morning, you're you're championships. Right there. He says the fact that there are no new indictments is not necessarily vindication for the president. You agree. Well, we got to read the report, but what I do know is to date not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination collusion conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the election, and that was the charge George when this thing started almost two years ago. The Democrats were all saying that the president of the United States work with a hostile foreign country to steal the election. And again, there's not been one bit of evidence to suggest that any of that happened. Well, there's been a fair amount of evidence that fourteen fourteen associates of Trump had over one hundred contacts with the Russians even though you're quite right. There was no charge of conspiracy. Does any of the information that's been revealed? About those contexts are about the fact that so many in the Trump world lied about those contexts concern, you well, I mean, look the central charge of of the special counsel was to see if there was conspiracy coordination or collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election as I've said that was the focus of the of the entire special counsel investigation. We've not seen any of that. And again, remember, this is Bob Muller. This was the guy the Democrats and the Repub everyone in town said this is the guy we need for the job. He is the best person we can pick. He is. He is right next to Jesus he can almost walk on water. This is the guy and he will have the definitive statement on that fundamental question. We'll see the report, but all indications are that there's not gonna be any finding of any collusion whatsoever. How about the other concern that one of the other concerns the chairmanship raise right there? The fact that President Trump might be compromised because he was pursuing that Trump Tower in Moscow during the campaign, not telling the truth about it may still be pursuing it today. Come on. I mean, look, here's what's happened. They they don't think this Muller reports going to be the bombshell, they all anticipated. It was going to be. So now, they're launching all kinds of other charges all kinds of other investigation. They bring in Michael Cohen a few weeks ago. This was their first big hearing their first star witness there. First witness of the one hundred sixteenth congress a guy who's going to prison in six weeks for lying to congress. They bring him in. And what does he do he lies again, we think at least seven times under oath in front of the congress again? So that didn't that didn't work for him. Now, what's chairman, neither do Eighty-one different letters to sixty some different individuals starting a whole new fishing expedition, this is how they operate. So if it's not the bombshell, they wanted they bring in Cullen that doesn't work that hearing is a flop then they go with chairman Nadler Eighty-one different letters sent out there. This is how the Democrats are going to operate. We just got to be used to it and understand that that's where they're gonna go. Do you stand by your vote that the country should see congress? The entire Muller report the turning Jenner was clear in his letter. A short letter Friday. There was a lot of important things. He said in there. He said he's going to consult with rod Rosenstein, he's going to consult with the special counsel, Bob Muller, and he's going to release as much as he possibly can consistent with the law. I think the Democrats should be that should be what we all want an attorney general who operates according to the law. So I'm I'm for airing on the side of transparency the whole thing released. You didn't have those qualifications in the vote. Yes, we did consistent with the law. That's what we want. And and I think the Democrats would want the same thing. But I'll tell you this, George if he's got a release all the information that I want all of it released. I want those three, oh, I want the conversations between Bruce or and Christopher Steele the guy who wrote the dossier. Glenn simpson. The guy that Clinton campaign hired to put the dossier together. I want all those conversations that Bruce or had with Glenn Simpson. Christopher Steele, those recorded those notes from the FBI I want all that. Application to be made public when they use. They use that dossier took it to a secret court didn't tell the court the Clinton campaign paid for that document didn't tell the court a foreigner. Who was who was desperate to stop Trump from being elected, president wrote, the document I wanted that information released to the breeze thing. Let's let's release it all let's be clear on that. Then. So you agree with the Democrats all the underlying documents should be released top to bottom. The Muller report should be released. We've just gone through the special counsel regulations. There's nothing in the law that precludes the attorney general from release that I'm saying that the attorney general said follow the statute. And that's what he's indicated. He's going to do in consultation with rod Rosenstein and Bob Muller. I think the Democrats should be happy with that. They said Bob Mueller was the guy that they wanted to do this investigation. Billboards Bill bars going to consult with him and decide what he can release. But if they do release everything then by golly release, it all show is application show us two three. Oh to show us the information. They gave the gang of eight the gang of eight with Adam. Mm ship was a part of that the gang of eight when they talk to them way back with about this dossier about what took place at the a court and about the start of this counterintelligence investigation show us all that information to the American people deserve we've asked for that information to be made public a long time ago because that goes to what these top people this cabal top of the FBI what they did when they launched this thing. Clear back in the summer and fall of twenty sixteen before the election, the president could order all this released on his own all of the declassified on his own. We urge him to do that. I've urged him to do to release this stuff. I just described. I sure have the stuff that Jim call me Andy McCabe. Jim Baker Lisa page. Peter Struck all this stuff that they had started with the dossier and all this stuff that they'd started initially with this investigation prior to the election. We urge him to order the release of the mullahs report is well again, that's the attorney general's call. And he's gonna do that consistent with the law saying is if the Democrats if the Democrats are gonna call for all that to be released, then they should call for everything to be asking you a different question. Now, the president has this authority. Are you asking the president to order the release of the Miller report, that's the that's the president's call? He said he wanted to be made public. He said that the other day when he was walking. I think out in front of the press. I think last Wednesday he said that. So that's that's the White House has called you mentioned the here. Michael Cohen a couple of weeks back as we know from the southern district of New York. They concluded that President Trump was individual one who directed. Michael Cohen to make those hush money payments to influence the election, essentially, directed a felony. Does that concern you, look, I I like I said Michael Cohen came in front of our committee, and he lied, we think at least seven times, that's why congressman meadows an ice in a criminal referral letter to the Justice department. We know he lied about his when he said he didn't want a job in the White House. We know that was a lie. Every every media outlet in the country had reported that is the conclusion of the southern district. Prosecutors they're the ones who said that individual one President Trump directed Michael Cohen to do this. Well, I mean, there's they have their investigation that they're doing in the southern district of New York. What I choose to focus on is the fundamental the charge of the of the special counsel was to look at collusion. We have not seen any of that. What I also know is Michael Cohen cannot be trusted any prove that when he was when he came back in front of the committee and several times lied under oath. I think the real question years will chairman Cummings. Join us in demanding that Michael Cohen be charged for perjury by the Justice department. I think he should do that. He was very clear at the start of the hearing. He said, Mr. Cohen, if you don't tell the truth, I'm going to hold you accountable, and we've seen nothing from chairman Cummings to do any of that any kind of holding him accountable at all so just to be clear the president's involvement of those payments doesn't concern you the president has had an amazing two years. He was in. He was in Ohio last Wednesday. And what I saw was people lining the street is he wrote. From the airport to the tank plant where we build the best tanks in the world. I saw people cheering him because they understand that this presence committed to fighting for the American people and getting accomplish the things he told the American people he was gonna do it was an amazing reception. He received from all kinds of folks here in the fourth district of Ohio just last

"Trump, also lashed out at Arizona. Senator John McCain who died almost seven months ago, he slammed McCain for passing the Christopher Steele dossier along to the FBI back in two thousand sixteen quote. So it was indeed just proven in court papers that last in his class at Annapolis. John McCain that sent that fake dossier to the FBI and media hoping to have it printed before the election. He and the Democrats working together failed as usual, even the fake news refused. This garbage Trump's allegation. There is false. NBC? News has reported McCain gave the dossier to the FBI. In December of two thousand sixteen that would be after the presidential election further. There's no evidence he ever gave the dossier to the media.

Michael Cohen testifies before Congress
"Michael Cohen when everyone in this room to think about this the first announced witness for the hundred and sixteenth. Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to congress. Mr Chairman, your chairmanship will always be identified with this hearing. What this is hearing for heavy-handedness. Straight up there about the business of the day. I think. Choreograph the whole. Cummings rose out all sorts of historic. These people are crazy than I am. No. He told her staff he told the committee staff, he said, the hearing was his idea he selected this committee. He had to talk Michael Cohen into comment, and most importantly, he had to persuade the chairman to actually have it. He told us took two months to get that job done. But here we this is what Americans like about politics. Yeah. I find the posturing someone convicted of lying to congress has appeared again so quickly in front of congress. Certainly it's the first time a convicted perjurer has Cota or no, he's shirtsleeved, sir. And there's a reason why subject really burning mechanical. Bernie sanders. Canadian we got lots of lawyers on this. No, it's actually sorta slick. I'm a witness to violate attorney client privilege. Mr Chairman, we legitimize dishonesty, we de-legitimize this institution. We're supposed to pursue the truth. But you have stacked the deck against the truth. We're only allowed to ask certain questions even with that amendment. You just told us about Russia's now on the table. You initially told us we can't ask questions about the special counsel can't ask questions about the southern district of New York. Can't ask questions about Russia realized that if he gets stuck in. I'm going to be harmful to the president of the United States and the answers to those questions. I'm gonna come from a guy who can't be trusted. Here's what the US attorney said about Mr. Cohen, Mr. Cohen enjoyed a privileged life, his desire, forever, greater wealth and influence precipitated. An extensive course of criminal conduct. Mr. Colin committed four four distinct federal crimes over a period of several years. He was motivated to do. So by personal greed and repeatedly repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive in could hire a piece of shit like that. They don't care. They just wanna use you Mr. Cohen. You're their Patsy today. They gotta find somebody somewhere to say something. So they can try to remove the president from office. Tom Steiner told him to Tom. Seek organized a town hall guess where cut replaced. George Soros or Charles coke townhall, guess where Sheldon Adelson district in Baltimore. The best. They can find the best. They can find to start this process. Michael Cohen well in this complete waste of time in the circus. Federal inmates. Seems like there's real works. If the congress could be doing. I'll say one thing about the Democrats. Oh, wait, they stick to the playbook. Remember, I'd like myself. Rex the Clinton campaign hired Perkins. QE law firm who hired Glenn Simpson who foreigner Christopher Steele who put together the fake dossier air, we go that the FBI used to go get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, but when that whole scheme failed and the American people said we're gonna make Donald Trump president. They said we got to do something else. So now Clinton loyalists Clinton operative. Lanny Davis has persuaded the chairman of the oversight committee to give a convicted felon a forum just tell stories and lie about the president of the United States, whatever we can start their impeachment process. Mr Chairman, we are better than this. We are better than this. Are you back? Nicely done. He said everything he knows the chairman actually I want. I jesus. I don't give these back. So. Yeah. Motion motion under rule two K six of rule Baxter chairman. You took seven minutes. I took four. That's how you could operate. I don't follow the rules. That's how you're gonna say. You'll be back. Backward. From the rules. I just have a simple motion. Mr chairman.

Russia. If you're listening, I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Okay. There's no disputing the fact that Russians were caught working to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign and help Donald Trump's campaign in the two thousand sixteen president Dench election. That's not really up for dispute and Donald Trump still never criticize his Russian President Vladimir Putin, which is surely left special prosecutor, Robert Muller wondering whether Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump. It look that way and Helsinki didn't it. It's a question. The entire world has been wondering about, especially after Helsinki now, all of this, not Helsinki everything that came before it years before it decades before it is explored in Jack Brian's new documentary called active measures, which takes viewers through a multi decade plot to get Donald Trump under the Kremlin's control as a conduit for money and influence at the highest levels of American authority.

Oh HR you can Google his name learn all about But really nobody outside of the. Department, of Justice much ever knew who. This man was He was, serving on the staff of the deputy, attorney general the United States in the Obama administration, and that bled into the Trump administration the deputy, attorney general was Sally Yates a partisan And then, the deputy following her was rod Rosenstein an incompetent While he was serving as the associate deputy attorney general to, Sally Yates He was conspiring with his wife Fusion GPS Which we're doing the opposition research and being paid for it On the Trump campaign The money of course was laundered through the law firm and. Laundered through fusion GPS they hired the foreign former spy Christopher Steele Christopher Steele enor- We're in constant contact So to Mr. or and stroke stroke in charge. Of the Hillary investigation and then in charge, of the Russian Wesleyan It gets complicated but it's really. Not sounds at unless you really focus in Now interestingly Mr. Steele. The former British, spy who was out to get Trump working with the Russians Paid at some point. By, the FBI a leaker to the media was also a special pleader apparently representing a Russian oligarch now there's an. Irony. Is, in the, stroke is working with Bruce or the associate deputy attorney general the United States Christopher Steele is working with Bruce or so information comes in from Christopher Steele and his wife I. Guess fusion GPS To this Justice department officials trying to push it into the FBI including, apparently reportedly, Mr. stroke To influence, the outcome of the election So I. Would ask these twelve former intelligence officials what do you think of? That president has made it abundantly clear he's going to yank Bruce or security clearance Did we get another letter from? You guys stating that that's a good idea I have another question The president's going to. Yank his. Security clearance you understand That his boss has the power his direct boss. ORs direct boss has the power to yankus. Security clearance That would be the ultimately. The attorney general, of the United States who is doing nothing on this They also have the power to fire him, I find, it interesting again I hear. These news guys on our favorite cable channel and elsewhere saying you know the president could fire him they want the president. To do these things so then. They can turn around and do their Sunday shows and trash him look at this a cover. Up only, a dictator does is not only that he's not a white guy must be a racist you know this is this is the stuff What. Does it, the attorney general fire Bruce oy What is it the deputy attorney general fire, Bruce, or The deputy? Director of the FBI fired, Peter, stroke Why do they keep setting, up the president of the United States this way So his security clearance should be pulled don't you think yeah I think so Depends how the president does it, does it for political reasons none of, his security clearance? Should, be pulled period John San. Francisco California the great k. s. f. o. go Pleasure. To talk to you Mark first time love, your. TV show also just started watching it Donya There's really a two class system when it comes to security, clearances and I will say from experience everyone for forty. Years and what happens here is these people are using this for their own self. Benefit you, know we, hear, oh it's so they can help the. Government they're helping themselves with one of these, clearances you can go out and you can lobby with. It you can work for contractors slow down so you can work for a federal, contractor isn't I really what we're talking? About. Yes it's a federal. Contractor what happens here is the policy, is and we hear the policies not being followed in both forms of government is within ninety days of employees of employment. Termination the is not, revoked but it goes in after and you can only reactivate reactivated Actually getting a contract working for another contractor so so these people's clearances the whole. Idea to, get to, keep, them it goes against all the policy. I would lose mine within ninety days you, know so you know I also had a security clearance. Highest security clearance when I was chief. Of staff to the attorney general I had, no expectation when I left the government? That. That clearance would come. With me none ears very dangerous to, let too many loose Canas running around with clearance it's you know the whole idea in terms of good security is it's, need to know and, do these people have to know where's their need to know You're. The second gentleman is called here another gentleman yesterday who had a security clearance said the. Test is need to know and that's all that's the basic daddy is the. Foundation, of the whole cleared but do you like the way they twist it by saying no no no you don't understand the intelligence services need their advice So that's why they have a security? Clearance, no, they're. Monetize ING their security clearances you just pointed out Just like a lobbyist and you know. Trump is, saying let's put a stop to this Trump doesn't, have to be the one to.

"In the last twenty four hours about how even we got to the, point of a Muller investigation a special. Counsel we know of course the gym Komi stunt with the leaking of documents but that was not all there was you know we've got Peter Struck who we know opened it on the FBI side even before. The election had occurred in the summer of two thousand sixteen and now. We know the Peter Struck open that investigation one day Literally one day. After Bruce or the number four the department of, Justice, and his wife Nellie or who is working for fusion GPS Glenn Simpson to put together dossier met with Christopher Steele at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington d. c. that gets in the news regularly on some salacious issues but, so they're there. And they have the meeting it's documented by emails and text messages from, Bruce Morton Christopher Steele saying it was. Great to, see you and Ellie so we now know that the relationship between Bruce or and his wife was a direct with Christopher Steele and by the way off Glenn Simpson from fusion GPS but literally the next day This way before years, before it was a year before we get to molar Peter Strock who has now I it's been disgraced by the politicization of his role as an FBI counter intelligence official one of the lead of that opens the investigation the next day, what if we also Lert Christopher Steele got fired, I think that sometimes that got this gets missed it in the news Christopher Steele gets fired by the FBI in. In leading up to I think let's see the specific time he gets fired in early of two thousand, sixteen so likely after the election, is what I mean. There's some time around there But Peter Struck and we have. This through emails and text messages continues working with, Christopher Steele through Bruce or Now Bruce door you're, gonna be disgusted a bit is still at the department of Justice now, he lost his, assistant deputy attorney general. But he is still the head of division at the department. Of Justice the organized. Crime drug enforcement task, force I wanna I wanna going to end and economy on that I. Eighty that alone he may have lost have been demoted in the sense of losing that title because of, this because Christopher Steele was told it is separation agreement by the FBI you're.

Demoted in the sense of losing title but he's still overseas division department Justice that is, huge that astounds me I cannot imagine that the department of Justice would continue to. Keep Bruce in its employment having disgraced himself, by dealing with this by x. by whatever you wanna call them and then even, after the day he is he is distanced by the government as being an expert continues his liaison with him and And instead of.

"In the last twenty four hours about how even we got to the, point of a Muller investigation a special. Counsel we know of course the gym Komi stunt with the leaking of documents but that was not all there was you know we've got Peter Struck who we know opened it on the FBI side even before. The election had occurred in the summer of two thousand sixteen and now. We know the Peter Struck open that investigation one day Literally one day after. Bruce or the number four at the department of, Justice, and his wife Nellie or who is working for fusion GPS Glenn Simpson to put together dossier met with Christopher Steele at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC it's it gets in the news regularly on some salacious issues but they, so they're there. And they have the meeting it's documented by emails and text messages from, Bruce Orden Christopher Steele say it was. Great to, see you and Nellie so we now know that the relationship between Bruce or and his wife was a direct with Christopher Steele and by the way off Glenn Simpson from fusion GPS but literally the next day This way before before there's a year before we get to Muller Peter Strock who has now been disgraced by the politicization of his role as an FBI counter, intelligence official one of the lead of that opens the investigation, the next day what if we also Lert Christopher Steele. Got fired I think that sometimes that got this gets missed it in the news Christopher Steele gets fired by the. FBI in leading up to I think let's see the specific time he gets fired in early two thousand, sixteen so likely after the election, is what I mean. There's some time around there But Peter Struck and we have this through emails and text, messages continues working with Christopher Steele through Bruce Moore and now you're now Bruce. Door you wanna be disgusted a. Bit is still at the department of Justice now he, lost his assistant deputy attorney general but he is still the head of. A division at the department of Justice organized crime drug enforcement task force I was going to end and economy on that I mean maybe that alone he may have lost been demoted in the sense of losing the title because of this because Christopher Steele was told in his separation agreement by. The FBI you're being terminated because you leaked information you should no. Longer operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf. The FBI we know we continue to Bruce so Bruce orbits mode in. The sense of losing title but he's still overseas division department, Justice that is huge that astounds me I cannot imagine that the department of Justice. Would continue to keep Bruce Hornets employment having disgraced, himself by dealing with this By x. by whatever you wanna call him and then even after the, day he is he. Is distanced by the government as being an ex by continues his liaison with him and instead of being terminated, and kicked out of the department. Of Justice he's merely. Demoted allegedly and moved to another position this time. Still ahead of an important division within the, Justice department this is outrageous it's not the department of Justice that I know, we come, back the reporter who.

"Right as we continue with Sarah Carter Greg Jarrett I. We, don't have a lot of time here what do we know about three o two's that show that steel kept feeding the FBI, allegations, after he was fired after Trump won Sarah what we know is this is one of the biggest things that congress has been beating over to try, to, get. The three oh to the interviews with Bruce or and that is the most that is revealed the most important and most pertinent information would, be all of those three oh two's they would contain. All the interviews with Bruce or how he got the information particularly on, front Christopher Steele how that was passed over Hugh the FBI to the bureau and, how he moved it what we do know is that and this was saying fully Devin Nunes how did in his Russia report. If you go back to, that ingred that again it's even more true today than it was done now that all this. Information has come out The fact that Christopher Steele himself minute about not, having, about not having President Trump win this election was very telling and I think that the three oh two will be very revolutionary as far as like, this, this. Is really about to explode wide open yet again it gets deeper and deeper every time I'm just out of time though Greg again congrats, two weeks in a row New York Times bestseller lists.

U.S. court orders Trump administration to fully reinstate DACA program
"Sovereign jetty White House reporter for the daily caller with. All the news but you need to know from coming out of the White House. And Capitol Hill I'm Mary Walter and I'm here. With bids colonies so good morning happy as always to be joining this morning by Joe digenova legal analyst and pharmacy is turning to the, district of Columbia, Joe. Good morning. Sir good morning glad to have you. Back on Friday the big news coming out that a judge John Bates US District Judge John Bates has now barred the Trump administration from ending DACA and saying that they need to fully restore the deferred action for. Childhood arrivals program that's that that program put in. Place by President Obama that allows young illegal immigrants Or they were, young at one point. To stay. In the United States without punishment how, is it exactly and and the judge says that. The Trump administration failed in its rationale for why it was changing it back. Why does it need to provide a rationale of this is an executive action to begin with well actually it. Doesn't make a confession here John I'm a John Bates the chief of my civil. Division when I was US attorney and then recommended. Him for a US district court judge John is is a good man but in this case he happens to be deadly wrong let's remember, this is this, beautifully. Named deferred. Action for childhood arrivals that's what docket. Stands for this is the goofy name that President Obama thought up to violate the law out of whole cloth he created an illegal program with a right to stay President Trump becomes president and says okay well that. Executive order by President Obama is a legal unconstitutional ongoing rescinded he's already said that Publicly that is sufficient reason the is simply wrong this notion this is something that the. Judge and two other. Judges just don't wanna do they don't want to take responsibility for making these children quote unquote leave the country. This is another outrageous example of judicial overreach he said that the reasons given by the president? Or, arbitrary and capricious my answer to that. Is. Nonsense get yourself a dictionary judge Joe why why does the constitutionally constitutionality and legality of this action even matter like let's pretend it. Was all fine and on the up. And up wouldn't it be well within the president's rights. To remove, a program put in place by the same branch of. Government yes it it it. Is within his the is simply wrong you know this is this is under the rubric of these. These old cases from the nineteen seventies by liberal judges that wants a right has been, created, by, the government in order to take it away you have to have. Some over arching justification This is the corruption of judicial overreach and how it has infected our. Public policy the fundamental rule here is the president who, follows, another, president can rescind. The executive orders of the previous president that. He's black letter constitutional law and the fact that federal judges refused to. Recognize it shows why it's important to get Brett Cavanaugh, on, the. Supreme? Court could everything is going to have to work its way to? The supreme court and that's part of what what's going on on the, left is that they're just delaying delaying delaying the marvelous game the left cannot win through elections so it winds through? The, courts regrettably. This is a Republican judge John Bates he's. A nice, guy but he's just dead wrong let's talk about another judge Dana sabroto a. US district judge who said that the Trump administration is responsible for finding immigrant parents who were deported and chose to. Leave their children here or who were release East into the US for whatever reason without their children how is. This the administration's responsibility if the parents chose to leave their children here in wouldn't take them with them this is another example of, incomprehensible judicial conduct I'm not quite sure what it's gonna take to sort of get federal judges back into the role that the constitution. Gives them which is relatively limited one had like five or six federal judges. Basically running the government telling the president of the United States that he can't do things that he was elected to. Do that is absolutely absurd it. Is a kind of judicial autonomy that. Has gotten out of control. There is. No justification for what, that judge did and yet. It continues this is going to happen until we get. A full smackdown from the supreme court on the substance of each issue which is whether or not the president has already and then secondarily these nationwide Guide injunctions the. Judges issue from one little court? In podunk that's all gotta stop and the supreme court has to address that the. FBI has released some documents related to Christopher. Steele move onto him he's the the guy who compiled the Trump dossier the the one is filled with all sorts of half, truths and and skeptical. Information of in terms of how credulous we should be about it Christopher Steele FBI documents heavily heavily redacted we can find out almost no information this is almost this. Is almost a joke. Right well what we know now is that this is this is no. Longer even open to question notwithstanding the lunatics on, CNN MSNBC and the. New York Times and the Washington Post there was the plot a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton and to frame Donald Trump it's real simple stop it it's not. Even open to, question anymore The Steele dossier is basically, unverified garbage none of it has ever been verified I keep hearing John Brennan and others say oh. Some of it's been verified but they never quite say. What ended has been. Verified and the reason is they can't what's really interesting is it after Steele was fired by the FBI for violating. Their rules as a confidential informant they actually continue to use him by having him report directly to Bruce Moore who was out of the deputies office under Obama in the Justice department and then. Bruce or acted steals, mouthpiece going back. To the f. b. i. and giving. Them the same type of bad intelligence and, the? FBI, because this is what they do made three o two's for every interview that they had. With Bruce source they're they're like sixty or seventy of these forms which Senator Grassley. Wants to make public, the bureau is refusing by the way keep your eyes and ears. Open over the, next week. Or two or a little bit more More there's going to be more stuff on five it's going to be fascinating it's going to get very ugly for Christopher Wray and rod Rosenstein. As evidence continues to mount that they are withholding information from congress and the public merely. Because they don't want to embarrass the, bureau or their predecessors at the department of Justice very interesting we will be looking for that Jaysekulow has come out and said that if Muller subpoenas the president they're gonna fight. Them all. The way to the supreme court But yet doesn't is fine the face, of what Rudy. Giuliani has been out saying to the last week or so well I think you're seeing a little good cop bad cop here I don't expect, the president to agree to any. Interview by Muller given the incredible illegitimacy of Muller's investigation the manner in which it's, been conducted the people who were conducting it. I think that the president is. Under no constitutional obligation in a case like this. Where he is not accused of a crime he is not a vital witness. There is no evidence that he has any information the special counsel has not provided to the president. In any of his letters any evidence that he thinks the president possesses which. Can get from no one else under existing law the. President is generally quote not. Available because he's very busy in this situation I think the, president will win any fight over subpoena I think Muller knows that and I think if, he were, going to, issue a subpoena he would've issued a long long Time ago. He doesn't want to issue it subpoenaed. Yeah I mean the president's in Bedminster a lotta time to think about whether, or not he actually wants. To do this we'll see what the outcome of that is Joe digenova thank you very. Much, really appreciate it as always seven fifteen now, wwl.
