Emily Gorcenski - Making Nazis cry
"People might not know who you are, which would be an awful shame because you one of the coolest people ever. Would you introduce yourself. Sure My Name's Emily Sanski. I am. Anything say work as a data scientist. But also activist and as many who? Studies on tracks modern white supremacy in hate movements. Technologist hockey player. All sorts of things. So I don't know what is what does it mean to be something where somebody? Wow, that's big. That's big from the from the very beginning. I think one of the things that when I was reading about you. A lot of places at set that you're a person who is known for making that cease cry. What does that stem from? That is true so As a little bit of background I'm from Charlottesville Virginia. or at least I spent. Ten years living there. And of course, Charlottesville was the site of the infamous neo-nazi rally in two thousand, seventeen where. A terror attack happened in the TIKI torches and all of that stuff right so sort of. Stuff that we've seen all around the world. And one of the Neo Nazis that was there marching at the rally was a man by the name of Christopher Cantwell and during Tiki Torch Rally, he pepper sprayed me. Along with several other people. And? End You know he was also at the time filming a documentary with Vice News And so what happened was after the rally in the? Vice and HBO. Race to put out this documentary about what had happened they had some very dramatic footage and. Christine was featured very prominently in in all of this and talking about. How he wanted to kill more people and you know showing off his guns and all of these things. Well, the thing is I knew who can't was and I knew that he pepper sprayed me because he posted a picture of himself pepper spraying me as his facebook header the next morning. So I went to the police and made the decision to rest charges against him. and. When he found out that there is a warrant for his arrest. This was shortly after the vice documentary came out with all of his bravado in his you know McKee's mount all of that. So this. News of this warrant comes out and he records himself in a hotel room somewhere in North Carolina or somewhere. Crying. On on this like stream because he's worried that he's got this this warrant for his arrest. And so this sort of very poor. Poorly intentioned little video that he produced. Of himself like sobbing, not quite sobbing but definitely sniffling. Earned him the nickname of decrying Nazi. So he became in within the span of just a few days he went from being this. You Know Big Bold Neo Nazi to this reduced hulk of a man. Who is crying because he you know got caught doing violence. And so that became a sort of a worldwide mean. And this happened because I was one of two people to press charges against him so. I've earned the reputation for making Nazis crappy, and since then I've also made several other Nazis cry for various reasons. And so I guess that is just now the reputation that I have. It's it's funny. You should say he was caught. Doing like very much promoted himself doing the line. You know it baffles the mind. This was such a bizarre sequence of events right because you know here he is somebody that went on camera and talked about how he wanted to be more violent. He was trying to be more violent. You know all of this stuff. and. Then when he acted violently, he bragged about it, you know Oh look at all the you know he calls everyone communists, of course, but all the commies that I guessed. And then he gets caught doing it and then he's like, oh no, there's consequences for my actions. Any cries. But it didn't end there right because. Sensible people when facing forty years in prison as he was. Would Shut their mouths but he did not know he started he continued recording his podcast from jail. And then when he was let out on bail. Despite having literally admitted to pepper spraying me. He then sued me and my co defendant or CO complaining rather in Federal Court. So there is a federal lawsuit against me. For claiming that he pepper sprayed me. Of courses lawsuit eventually went away. It was fine. But it I mean the tied up year life and as a result of this and as a result of his. Many. Attempts to to silence and intimidate me and I actually had to leave Charlotte. So I had to leave the country. In fact, I now live in Germany And so you know the sort of. End of the story or the maybe it's not the end. But the chapter that the story is now on is that Chris can't will plate pleaded guilty to. Two counts of assault. He was let out of jail. So he didn't get the forty years in prison. You got you know basically. Slept on the rest and sent back to his home but he was banned from the state of Virginia for for five years. Well, he didn't make it five years because now he's sitting in a New Hampshire. Jail. Awaiting federal charges where he is now facing thirty two years in prison for extorting. In violently threatening. Another fellow nutmegger.

While spending less I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today as someone who has hitchhiked across oceans who started off on a four year journey around the world with only fifty dollars in his pocket and came home with a wife and who is a fellow twin Christopher shot author of around the world on Fifty Bucks Christopher. Thanks for joining me a huge. Welcome. To Be Masao, I am very excited to chat with you and I my trial. We say that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. But today you're going to be the one who's the expert in that because you have certainly Done that on your adventure, but before we start talking about all this. I saw that you were twin mentioned somewhere on one of your sights and you said your twin is the exact opposite of you. So explain that how is he the exact opposite view? Okay Festival. From the parents and I have blonde hair blue eyes. I'm about one one, eighty, three centimeters I think that's something like six foot. Tall and my brothers about ten centimeters about three inches smaller taller than me. And but then this is only the outside parties, Brown hair Brown eyes but from the inside, I'm sort of the person who wants to go out and explore the adventures type of person and teas such a comfortable home drawn guys. So he would rob a die Ben leaving his nice comfy home and bad and toilet. So yeah, actually this was what his concerns that I was going on this world trip. You said, okay maybe you don't want to miss this opportunity for all the money in the world, but I wouldn't WanNa do it for the money in the world so tell me why are you gonNa go to the toilet while you're out in the woods and all that? and. We're going to sit here on my is heated. Toilet. Yeah. It's crazy right how you can have the same upbringing same parents and yet be completely different especially when it comes to personalities. I tend to say in those times is benedict. You know that I'm five minutes older new. So once you will hit my age, we'll talk again. Okay. That's an awesome line. It's interesting because you know obviously twins or not that uncommon, but don't be a ton of people. And I'm a twin myself. Now I have a twin sister and we are we are very much different in in most ways like I think people who know US say all they're pretty different, but then every once in a while. And I feel like I'm either acting like her I say something I'm like, Oh, I sound like my sister. So is there ever I? Know you say your exact opposites but are there any times or any situations where you do see yourselves sharing certain things? There's traits. Totally. So especially humour when we will in the same class, only one glance to each other would be enough to just burst out laughing and everybody else. would be like what's going on This is so crazy, and until until today there is no other person on this planet who I laugh with so much like with my brother. So that's really amazing. I love this guy even though we are completely different we get along very very well. Yeah that is awesome and yeah, people always ask me well, how what is it like to be a twin? How's IT different? I don't know because I don't know what it's like not to to end right so. There's also the strange telephone thing is creepy. Mind conduct going on that cannot really explain alycia twin for sure for sure. So let's talk about your journey a bit a journey that as as your brother put it, you would not give up for all the money in the world and he wouldn't go on for all the money in the world and you left on this journey fifty dollars in your pocket no plan. So when you first laughed how long in your head, did you actually think it would last? So, I left on the first of July two, thousand thirteen and at that point of course, all my relatives wanted to know Christopher how long are you going to be gone for and I? talked them off as saying well I don't know if I'd give you a deadline. Then you would say probably after two years crucify you said you're going to be back after two years. So now where you are. and. I when I avoid that I will need as long as I need. So no timeframe at all. That's usually what I said brushed them off like this but secretly I I actually thought about two years and then later on it turned out to be far because it's definitely not enough to get once around the world without
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

"Call future career toolkit. And their three tools, voice antenna, and Mesh. And the voice pieces around using triggers It's actually a semantic intuition set of tools I developed with ideation guru, a friend who lives not far from me here, Connecticut. And using using triggers like your favorite movie or a book or a TV show even game and figure out what what about it resonates with you. As a way to tease out areas you're focused on it that you're passionate about are interested in it. And then we take those the results of those triggers that voice exercise and plug them into a grid that I call ten. which is a process of finding where conversations going on around those. Areas so eating example so when I do it. I tease out blade runner twenty forty is my favorite movie recently because it deals with sort of future tech and teacher culture which I'm interested in, and then the book I like was rise and fall of nations by Russia Shama economists and talk sort of trending around GDP in education and what countries are emerging and evolving in which are sort of stagnating because I'm interested in global economics at the end of the day it's all about business you know whether we like it or mile posts. So the antenna grid looks like me I'm following BBC Click example TV show that's on is produced once a week but emerging technologies sort of the fringe that are driving a growing emerging business models I look at the New York Times for sure There's a show called Bloomberg technology. It's on every day at five. They talk about the connection between innovation and most Silicon Valley, and technology and business. So. That's a source and I and the antenna piece you know ask people to call out So Longitudinal or temporal framework. So look at the New York Times every day what bloom technology at five o'clock your. Stuff maybe twice a day and then ABC click like once a week. So so he set up a framework, a pattern that you can use to kind of. Capture and be aware of conversations around your topic areas of interest. All right, and then the third pieces Mesh, which is tracking down and I encourage you'll use linked in I. think it's the. De Facto Standard the Lingua, Franca, the coin of the realm I mean they're two, hundred, sixty, million people on link then mostly professionals right So I encourage people to take the from the antenna. Exercise and figure out who are the actual people and or companies that are doing interesting innovative work based on the topics that you teased up. And then connect with them and stay in touch with them to follow what they write about follow them on twitter see who they follow who they think is important or interesting. And we got back to the network building concept and the more people that know who you are, what you're interested in the better your odds of Mandy your next job. And the one after that. Thank you I. Wonder if we can take a bit of a date dive into your actual program in the construct of it and what people are likely to find inside of it. Yeah.

Lockhead came to me a couple of weeks ago and was asking if he could run the Kevin meaney interview that we had just done over in his feed, and he was asking if I would like to swap and of course I I was just thrilled. Because we've had Christopher on the show, he is a mentor of mine has helped me out over the years, and it's just a fantastic storyteller, and as soon as he mentioned this. This I knew that we would want to get his interview with Rick. Manner and use that and so that's what got you here. It's about an hour and fifteen minutes, and he goes to town, but it's just fantastic. Rick is the kind of guy who does ad campaigns that get CEOS fired at the competitors of the clients, so there's just a bunch of fun stuff here that you're gonNA love. I was just blown away by this interview, and so I'm psyched to get a chance to give it to you now. Now just before we get started to a disclaimer, there is some salty language here. If you're afraid of the bomber, it's going to cause a problem. You might want to just skip this episode, but I it's definitely worth it.

The guest is driving their three media trained talking points, and so you always know you're listening to a show. Our hope is that you forget that here that you have an eavesdropping experience during the conversation an experience that draws you in hopefully inexperience. You WanNA share with others. And what our long-term listeners tell us. Is that if you listened throughout?

"You will not be disappointed. That's ever welcome back to another episode of Missouri's unqualified opinions on Ryan Circus at two bit idiots here with another famous crypto twitter personality. I'm talking about Crypto Dad former chairman of CFTC Chris Giancarlo. Who is now a senior counsel at Wookey? Farr and Gallagher Talk about a number of the initiatives that he's been working on more recently and the digitisation of the American dollar but I think the the nickname Monica crypto data's well-deserved we're GONNA talk about. How christel down the CRYPTO rabbit hole? What he's excited about going forward and what we should all be looking out for generally in the US regulatory regime. Over the course of the next couple of years. So Chris For starters thank you for joining and I think you have a lot of fans within the community. Based on how proactive and forward thinking you and your colleagues. Cfcc has been. But I always like to start with the origin story because everybody's starting at a different periods of time in in very often cases wildly different contexts. And of course you're gonNA come crypto from a very unique Path having served in a regulatory capacity for for many of the formative years of this industry Why don't we start by just walking through your first exposure to Crypto? Maybe your first impressions and how they evolved over time. And then we'll get to the role. You have a non regulator. That's actually on the bleeding edge of some of the initiatives were building on the stable coin space in particular X. Right it came to it in a very interesting way in. That is not a actually as a regulator but I if we're going and spending five years at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission. I spent thirty years in the private sector and from the year. Two thousand until twenty four team. I was building one of the world's what is today the world's largest trading platforms electronic trading platforms for over the counter derivatives swaps. In two thousand. I started on that endeavor and over the next next several years the firm GSI group. We built the world's first electronic execution trading capacity for swaps and we Were very much like a lot of probably of your listeners. As entrepreneurs we raised three rounds a private equity financing and in thousand five. We took the company public offering on the Nasdaq and then later onto the New York Stock Exchange in a series of very very successful public offerings in two thousand and eight. I've found ourselves right at the center of the financial crisis out. We were the exchange for things that were trading on an exchange things that measured the counterparty credit risk of the failure of one large money center bank to another large money center bank basically the failure of the Wall Street financial system. And at that moment I remember calls. We're receiving from the financial from the Federal Reserve. They asking us will exactly what you guys do again. And and how is it? You're marketplace's measuring the potential for failure of the banking system. And it struck me at that point in time that regulators had no better way of understanding the risk into calling around to shops like Mahin to get a handle on what was going on in the marketplace and I became an advocate for a number of the reforms that made their way into the Dodd Frank Act namely the regulation of the swaps market and the greater transparency the greater ability for that market to reveal information and in that. I became an advocate for the blockchain. Had we had a blockchain in place for the credit exposure of banks to be registered on. We would have had a much better picture of the current risk in fact at the time it was perceived that the gross amount of protection written against the failure of Leman brothers was measured at four hundred billion. What we now know that when you net download those exposures the net exposure of a failure lead brothers was less than nine billion. Had we had a blockchain in place then we would have known that and had we known that our policy responses would have been a lot more targeted. A lot more calibrated and I think a lot more effective in terms of addressing the financial crisis. So how does that get me to Bitcoin? Well that's why I joined the commission. That's why I left. The private sector went into government help the commission implement the core tenets of the dodd. Frank Act but while I was there I took a much broader view. It struck me that. Not only is the swaps market but in fact so much of our financial market infrastructure is antiquated. It's aged and in some cases it's obsolete you know Ryan if we look around us today. We see our our public transportation system. We see our bridges our tunnels our airports that were once. State of the art in the twentieth. Century have become antiquated in some cases. Obsolete as we go into this new digital twenty-first-century while the same is true about so much of our financial market infrastructure whether it is the way we do consumer lending based upon live or a rape. It was became obsolete decades ago or whether the way we handle a securitization of mortgages in a lot of practices that actually exacerbate that lack of transparency into counterparty credit risk in the need for modernisation and finally the core architecture of our own currency. The dollar the dollar still very much of an analog instrument in a digital world. And that's why I've become a proponent for the digital dollar project so as we go in our conversation. I'd like to talk about these projects but my core thesis since leaving the Commission. My thesis about money. Is that so much of? The architecture is is aged. It's it's analog and it needs to be modernized for a new digital new judgmental generation a new digital future. I think most people within the industry would certainly agree with that. You talk about the why inspiration and and you make it seem much more fluid Than.

"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..

"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..

"Knew that Christopher Robin was a terrible irredeemable father, and and that moment was when he knows all his daughter wants is for him to hang out with her, can't because he's got so much to do so little time and then Poos like come through the portal with me and he's like a fucking, I'll go to the. Rather than spending a second with his daughter, he goes, yeah. What's the worst that could happen knowing full? Well, there's no time difference through the portal. He's going to literally have some issues with time and he's still fine with. He's going to go through the portal and just, you know, reminisce with old bear rather than do the right thing, which is go and hang out with his daughter, which you could easily have done. He is a comically terrible father, like it is. It is hilarious how bad he is such a bummer. If you watched last year's goodbye Christopher, Robin, which was about his actual life about how his parents actually really sucked. And it's just, oh, it's such. It's not. These are not the things I wanted my head. I just I just want my little Pooh bear like singing about rain clouds and being, you know, balloon carrying little dope. I things there. But again, I I think we're, we're basically done talk about this, but it's just like the moment when other people see PU interacting with the real world, right? Jeff, like you've described it as a horror film, they're all linked. I agree. It also forces me to like re contextualised the entire rest of the film until that point. So PU has teleportation powers as well. Right? Because you can like e can open that portal. Like wherever I, it just like, I mean, does thinking power seems is just he has control over, which I don't think he does. Like if we're going to go that deep into the text of the movie, I think it's just that like I don't pretend to understand it something about Honey and childhood. I don't know what I was like through just just for clarity sake for the for the sake of our audience. We should step through the moments the what thirty years between the last time Christopher Robin leaves. And the next time we see Pooh bear there evidently has been a horrible. Series of events in the hundred acre wood. There has been some sort of perceived threats of of what are they called, but that would that is before that's covered in the opening. But this time because Christopher Robin's not there, it literally caused the destruction of all their homes and just als- toppled, right? Am I getting that wrong? I think they were all at a tea party in our house in the truth and the the house fell over. He made it sound like it happened before Kristie. You really minimizing the horror. Yeah, that's a question question. The whole home before. Christie hold on. Hold on. Let's finish making this point which is that this is a horrifying Jeff. Regardless of what has happened. The hundred acre wood. Let's not ignore the fact that Christopher Robin abandoned his animals, his stuffed animals for thirty years. Yeah, thirty years like just leads. Yeah, I mean, and we never ever see alll or rabbit again. I mean after they after the alums said. Yeah. Some of them. We see them again right at the end. Any Chrissy organ I wanted to ask you guys, especially Jeff, like, do you think this is a movie that children will enjoy? 'cause I was surprised at the screening. I went to often with Disney movies. You see a lot of kids there. I saw one. Glad you brought this up on my guy because I almost forgot to mention an anecdote. But I will..

"It with the FBI, which is of the right thing to do. Yeah. I mean, the Republican position seems to be that if they can discredit Christopher steel and then discredit the FBI for you for relying on Christopher's steals information, they never have to deal with what's in the dossier. Yeah, There's a number of things that I find sort of troubling with that in a first of all, as as professional intelligence officers, It is your job when given a potentially serious information is to runs the ground to see if it's true or not. You absolutely need to know and look at the source of that material, but look at it in the sense of terrorist information. If if somebody came to the FBI or someone said, I have information of a terrorist attack about to take place. You wouldn't stop and wait and and talk about, Well, where's the pair for? There are Garamba Randy, Cooper pro-Clinton. I look at those things. And So what's interesting to me, it is far as this goes, is given the information that was in the dossier That's incredibly damning information at potential espionage. It said in a potential money-laundering a number of other things. They quickly in a professionally have an obligation to look at that Metairie and see if any of its true. If it's not They wouldn't waste their time, they would. They would say, thank you. They look at it quickly and and move it on. So it's really interesting that they're trying to attack Mr. Steele attacked the dossier. A and and obviously Mr Trump calling a garbage and trash. If it's trash, They've got nothing to worry about because the FBI's of their busy people there, They have a lot of work to do. They're not about to try to make information were doesn't exist of none of that information checks. I hope they would just There was Klay would easily pushed aside, move on. They can't make up. Information is not there. So it's surprising to me that the drama in the anger around something that they claim is just garbage anyway. So they they clearly did find steel, very credible is information very credible. Uh, but then right before the election, There's his where development where the FBI have quoted anonymously, FBI agents could. And honestly, in the New York Times dismissing, the Russian investigation investigation into Trump right after James Komei has announced that their reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton. So some of the FBI manages to communicate with pretty much the opposite of the truth, which is they give people's understand. There's nothing there with the Trump story when it turns out that day by their own analysis, there was something there and thinking likewise or or conversely that there was something to the Hillary Clinton allegation, which they dropped again shortly thereafter for lack of any meaningful evident. It's interesting. I don't understand how the Republicans and others are. People are looking at us. I think there's an assumption somehow that the FBI would be she would be because Mr Steele provided information, the FBI would be providing information back to him on what checked out and went didn't. And so it sounds like if I understand in at that time period Mr Steele was providing information the FBI. And when he saw the Hillary Clinton thing open up again, he assumed they weren't taking his information seriously, and therefore with was frustrated by that. But of course, the me the way the FBI and the CIA and other places work is in what we gladly accept information. But we don't have an obligation to to share that back with the source so that they understand. I think in this case at it. It discombobulated Mr Steele. Does it matter if Chris Christie ill preferred that Hillary Clinton be elected to Donald Trump being elected. It's still not completely clear to me if he knew where the funding from Jeep you, you fusion GPS was coming from. I'm not sure. I think England Simpson's testimony, he said that he didn't tell Christopher skill who was paying you. I didn't read the whole testimony, But. But Mr Simpson's Abed in the New York Times said, he specifically did not tell Mr Steele where the funding was. I just told them that they wanted to look into Mr Trump's business, dealings with the Russians and other things. So in I don't know whether within that part is true. Mr Steele is a British citizen. So he's not as animated and could connected to our politics as we all are Enter. He's not a Republican or down Renault know exactly. And, uh. The new memo made much about the fact that that in a believe the fall of two thousand sixteen Mr Steele said something about, you know wanting to get this information because it was important to Mr Trump not get elected, And looking at that as bias and looking at an through a political filter To me it, you know, that could also that could also support the nonunion as side of things. The if Mr Steele is a professional intelligence officer was so confident in his sources that those same sources had helped him on the fief investigation. And he believed what he was being told that it's natural that he would not want Mr Trump to be elected. You know, he was he was getting information that suggested a conspiracy with the Russians possible 'Simba espionage these other things. And so I don't think it was a you know, he had had a long-serving dislike of Mr Trump as a political entity wasn't ideological. It was the avenue you ever. There's a great quote Europe up political a political piece. This week, He said, If I collected information from trusted. Digital sources that Trump was engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Vladimir Putin, I'd be biased to. Yes, I'm surprised that they use that as a is something an empty end of the day. If someone is a source like Mr Nunez claims for for the up here, whether their their political views are only interested in as we put together, what makes that that source tech, whatever's motivations, whereas connections, but if that persons providing information that we're able to verify Check trust moving forward than whether that person is a Republican or Democrat doesn't much matter. There are few other charges against steel and they're they sort of become decreasingly persuasive. But what about this complaint that steel went to the press? That seems to be one of the Republican arguments for discrediting our dismissing him with violating some rule when he was talking to the FBI in also having back wrong conversations at the Washington Post and elsewhere. I think this goes to the either Mr Nunez's misunderstanding or as effort to try to. Suggest in his memo that because Mr Steele was a source of the FBI than he was obligated to act in a certain way or that like we've seen since you know with Mr. Flynn and others, it If you lied of the FBI, that's a a crime for US citizen to look to lie to the FBI. However, as a as a source as a foreign person who's passing information voluntarily, There's no rules around that. He wasn't an employee of the FBI and he wasn't bound by the rules that would govern enough Yang. Rely He's a British citizen. And if he in here, he collected information for his company. If he chooses to talk to two journalists and others, That's completely his prerogative. Now, at the same time is a product of the FBI. If they think that that's becoming too open and out there that they can certainly several their relationship. But it's not a it's not a legal issue, which I think that the memos trying to apply. I mean th that evidence here, assertive preposterous, but also the argument is on its face pretty implausible that the FBI with make. King at as syrup tissues and devious effort to elect a Democrat as president. I mean, the FBI has a pretty Republican. A place in the CIA is to just in terms of you actually asked the one out of the people work there, vote They're professionals but aren't about the CIA and the FBI pretty Republican. That would be my guess what? It's. It's funny. I was just talking with a friend who is retiring from CIA yesterday. Allow people will come to talk Inuits alike outside looking for jobs, that kind of thing. And we're talking about this very thing and I said, Listen, I've been working with you for twenty years, all these overseas place. I have no idea what your politics are. I think at least in the in the CIA, the culture of non-partisan work was was very, very strong. So long, many of my friends, I had no idea what their politics were till I retired in some on Facebook or whatever, and noticed. You know what, what they were saying. So we take great pride in the fact that it's nonpartisan. I've never been in a meeting the CIA. We talked about supporting one candidate or one party ever in any case. Perhaps the director of their organization is a political appointee, whereas everyone up else all the way up through the deputy director of professionals that therefore focused on on mission. And I, you know, you hear these things now saying, all the FBI. Those are all Obama holdovers. Well, I was Reagan hold over And then I was a Bush hold over. And then I was a Clinton holdover like we worked for the United States, not for a in the in in support of the Constitution, not for specific party. Now the FBI at my my guess in most of the people I know I at least I suspect that there there are more conservative than they are liberal, but they also have that same thing. They're working because they support the United States and the sport. The Constitution not in this partisanship death was very frustrating about this administration because they are giving the impression of the American people that these institutions are partisan, that they're hacks, that they they work for one presidents and then you know, in Lievin you listen, we can't swap out in the thirty thousand people, the FBI. Every time is new new president, the sort of support. Those policies and things like that. That's very frustrating to many of us in in in the profession. Do you think there's any precedent for what's going on now in terms of the attempt to politically discredit intelligence work come in? There certainly have been past attempts if you go back to Watergate to use the intelligence agencies for political purpose, but Have you ever seen anything like this? And in terms of political figures should trying to discredit basic the basic function of intelligence Now? I know I have not the basic function now. You know the intelligence agencies in the CIA Nosa have been under political fire for mistakes and problems, and you know the 1970s The FBI, Other DOT, the FBI and CIA. I've had a history of you know of things that have There have been rightly criticised over time and sometimes wrongly criticised. But but having the president of the United States undermining the very notion of you know, of of a non-partisan professional law enforcement and intelligence agencies is something we haven't. CNN to see the reaction of a lot of retired people, You see Mr Clapper and Mr Brennan, and Anna, and Mr Colmey and all these other people sort of out talking about these issues. Now, they probably in the past wouldn't have done it because I think they're they're shocked by what they're saying. You must have a lot of friends who were still there. What's morale like? Get the agency? What's funny? Because because I talk a little bit to the media and I right now I am very careful. Again, there's a very strong culture about mission focused non-partisans So I very careful bought not sort of eliciting When I talk to my friends in all talk on, but they're not. There is no, They're not sources Horta. No, no. But it's got to be very difficult time. I think the agency in some ways it probably better off. I'm just as me guessing Van perhaps the FBI in this case. Because in the CIA, again, like I said, I worked for a number of presidents and the work almost never changed. There was always an interest in important and good intelligence. Many of our people are overseas focused on mission. Things that that are in critical for the government and they're not going to change depending on political party. So it's a little bit easier to put your head down and not pay attention to the the the churn in Washington were the FBI's a domestic organization and probably faces it more directly than in the CIA. Like if I was thousands, see a now and I wasn't prepared to retire, I would try to get myself a job somewhere Lott far away in India or something focused on and doing the work and and being away from sort of the the people at the FBI are just more vulnerable than people to see. I I I see it that way. Yeah. So John, as you say, the Republicans want to do anything, but look at what's in this dossier but when you read it as someone who is an intelligence professional, you know, as you say, nothing in it's been disproven but very let let it has been definitively proven. If anything, how much do you think, how much would you guess ultimately will we find as for will? That's one thing is the the attacks against the Doe, CIA, and the author of the dose air or. So powerful but I've seen very little dealing with with the content of the dossier and professional investigators, the FBI. They need to look at that and see whether it makes sense. Like I told you it in the right. I mentioned earlier, you know, if it's a it's a terrorist threat, they got to see whether it makes sense. And so if they look at that mature and it makes sense that they're obligated to sort push forward. So clearly were unable to verify a lot of around the dossier but it does provide a sort of a narrative of collusion we, you know, there's the Russian services the best in the world at blackmail on these kind of covert operational games that they played miss Mr Trump is probably, you know of candidates that the most unique and vulnerable to blackmail and extortion. We've then seen activity that the that the, um, the dossier talks about of people associate with Trump dealing with the Russians. Some of them even been arrested for that. There's a number of meetings that that sort of fit with what's in the dossier and in subsequent to that. When they Ridgely the Trump campaign. People said they had nothing to do with Russia, and then went as these things, a dribbled out over time they've they've lied about and covered up And then attacked any institution. It could hold them responsible. So that's a clear sort of narrative that comes from the dossier of of collusion. But what I haven't seen and I'm surprised by any effort by people who want to support Mr Trump to refute a specific allegations or to provide a a corresponding narrative of innocence like it to me, I don't understand why any campaign anybody running for president needs to be talking to Russians. If you're trying to win votes in New Hampshire in Iowa, Why do you need to be speaking to Russians? And if you're speaking to Russians for some reason, are you speaking to Chinese and Germans and others? So I've never seen anybody Mr Trump or other than attacking these institutions say, Oh listen, we were talking to these Russians for this reason. That reason, you know, maybe it was a mistake, but they haven't done that instead. All they'd been, they've done is attack everyone who was brought up legitimate issues. Yeah, they're they're narrative, innocent innocence. His Bay had a lot of freelancers who are off doing things without their authorization. And secondly, although they were willing to hear these ideas about cooperating colluding with them, They didn't pull the trigger were Then they they should own up to that and explain it, you know, essentially, the only thing I've ever heard is when push comes to shove, They say, Oh, it's all legal. Well, it's legal, but it doesn't make sense if I'm sit in front of you now and I smash my hand with a hammer that's legal, but you're going to want to know why the heck I smash my hand with the hammer and if I just say, Well, it's legal, You're going to walk away quite confused. And so I think that's where we are like, why were they up to their necks with Russia and not particularly with any other country in the world, Right? Yeah. I've been speaking to John Saifur He's a former official in the CIA's clandestine service. His piece in Politica this week is the smearing of for steel John. Thanks for coming on. Thank you. My pleasure.
