I can't say for sure, but the fact that President Trump will have come down here for the third time since October, and the fact that they are sending him to rallies here today. The fact that so much money as flooded at the last minute this race is definitely unusual in Mississippi to have that question even lingering over a Republican USA candidate,

"The more accurate answer as to what is motivating Donald Trump. I think possibly could be found in a may nineteenth two thousand eighteen piece in the New York Times by Mark mazzetti. Ronen Bergman and David Kirkpatrick headline Trump junior another aids meet with Gulf emissary, offering help to win election. Donald Trump junior. The president's eldest, son. Three months before the two thousand sixteen election. Was part of a small group gathered at Trump Tower, one of the people there was an Israeli specialist and social media manipulation. Another was an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes, one of whom those Arab princes with Muhammad. Ben Solomon, the third was. Eric prints from blackwater the emissary, George Nader. Said that the prince's who led Saudi Arabia in the UAE were eager to help his father win the election. They made some type of deal. The the Israeli social media guy ended up getting paid a couple of million dollars after the election. Nater was brought in multiple times into the campaign. Not the type of profile that you would have. If your offer of help was rejected. But the question becomes like. Is Donald Trump really the type of person to get help being elected? And then. Just be incredibly loyal, for instance. Let's say you were the first Senator. Who came out and supported Donald Trump? Would he be loyal to you, even even if you kill somebody? And your name was Jeff Sessions. I think the answer would probably be no. It's. I mean, I don't even think this is like a tit for tat type of situation the way that Trump is acting. He may have some deal. Donald Trump junior may have some deal. Kushner may have some deal. Or the Saudis may have information that. Would be dangerous for them to share with other people about Donald Trump or Donald Trump junior. Like, I mean, they they made a deal. It is unclear what that deal was. Donald Trump's loyalty is been proven time and time again to not necessarily be most super deep the most loyal. It's very strange. It's very strange what's going on here. Now, I will say that a lot of the players who are talked about in this piece. They've already talked to Muller or they have been talking to Mahler. So we will probably find find out. I have a feeling when Muller ends up bringing out his report if he does that it's going to be. Much wider in its range than we an -ticipant. There may be some elements about Russia. There may be more. I mean, the collusion stuff seems to be pretty much of a slam dunk at this point when you're trying to prosecute Komi. I mean, I would like to prosecute McCall me, but it would be more like under the. Cedar bylaws. What do you do if you are a completely craven? Republican media person. And the CIA has said that MB s was involved. The Turks have said that M B S was involved. Every expert on Saudi Arabia says it's almost inconceivable that a fifteen member hit squad would travel to an embassy. Chop up a journalist who's an American resident. And Bs would know about it. What do you do if you are that craven Republican talker? Well, you continue to craven and talk and. Here is Hugh Hugh Hewitt. Trying to come up with an explanation for how it is that the president the United States who's going on and saying like I needed to do it for the money. We get American needs. This incidentally, not only does American not need Saudi oil. We buy. I don't know what ten percent of our oil from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia could raise the prices of oil internationally by by choking off a supply from OPEC. But. There's a report out today. That. See an insider business insider, Texas is about to create OPEC's worst nightmare. There's been so much drilling. That's been going on in this country over the past even under the Obama administration as well. There are new pipelines that are getting built all over Texas. And in Houston, the US oil capital shale executives are trying out different superlatives to describe what's coming soon. Nami they call it a flooding of biblical portions an onslaught of supplier phrases, they could tossed around. So in other words, Saudi Arabia couldn't be in a weaker position right now..

It's consumer point to me that something that Ben Sasse is done that has been provided a check I mean, this guy so in touch with the essence of what the founders expected. He's like Jeff flake might kind of. He's not going to go all the way, but he'll give you a little taste, and I suppose bents acids is going to wrap up his career in two years and head back to Nebraska's that word to believe Ben Sasse is on his his retirement lap right now.

He has been there on just about everything. And the only thing he deserves. Yeah. Tariffs and healthcare. Which of course, he was. Unbelievable. Benz S. Yes. So much for Ben Sasse. All right. Well, let's get to the story about. Kashogi because of the C I A now. Has said that they have fairly significant evidence that. N B S was aware of this. Now, it also is the most obvious answer. That kashogi was I mean that mom had been Salman was involved in this. First let's start with. With Donald Trump. Being asked if he's leading NBS get away with murder. And here's Donald Trump's. Essentially his statement. I mean, they released another statement that was all about justifying this position. But this is the position are you letting the Saudis get away with murder, murdering a journalist this about America first. Paying us four hundred billion dollars, plus the purchase and invested gun thing. That's probably the biggest amount ever paid to the United States. Don't you believe there? See I didn't make a determination. Just like I said, I think it was very maybe he did. Maybe he did they did not make that assessment. The CIA has looked at it. They've studied it a lot. They have nothing definitive. Well, I mean the. A lot of people are asking. Why would it be? Why would Donald Trump? Be so hesitant to. To hold the Saudis responsible for this and particularly MB us and. The argument that it's about jobs and money is obviously bunk. I mean, people have debunked this all over the place. The the deal is closer to twenty eight billion dollars. And it goes. To Lockheed Martin in. They're creating less than a thousand jobs close so close it's so big. So big.

That's something that we could ran the congress doesn't seem to be working. Well, how long have you actually been in the Senate now almost four years? What do you do? The problem is why why doesn't the congress function the way that I think the founders intended ause you for one second. This is very easy question for people to answer. Why has congress not functioned the way that it's supposed to in terms, and they're talking about you're talking about oversight of the executive branch. Now, the answer is quite easy. It is because the Republican party has controlled both those branches in the Republican party has over the past twenty twenty five years in addition to being ideologically problematic from my perspective. But functionally in terms of congress have been totally derelict, and they are a death cult and death cult don't really care about good government and accountability. Let's see what Ben Sasse thinks congress function the way that I think the founders intended. Yeah. So I mean, I think in two hundred and thirty years of US history. The congress is probably the second weakest moment. The founders didn't have a vision of the world where people wanted to be in politics, moved to DC and stay there forever. You're supposed to think the place where you're from is the most interesting place in the world. And we use the term historically public service because you go to Washington to serve for time. And you're supposed to go back home right now. Most people in Washington their biggest long-term thought is about their own incumbency. They don't ever leave that place. And so they don't want to do hard stuff. So there's not a lot of checking and balancing there's a lot of more kind of parliamentary instinct to defer to people in your own party. And the founders will be confused by that posit. You know, what the the founders would be confused by a lot of things. I mean, this is such a ridiculous argument. The there's something fundamentally wrong with politicians who want to continue to work in government. The bigger problems that people leave and then cash in frankly on their service, but the idea that the founders would be confused by this. You know, what else they'd be confused by how people actually get to Washington. They fly issue they fly big steel cans. What are you serious? What are all these black people doing to what is the point? He's trying to make about public servants. Like if you look at that. Actually, we call them public servants because you were supposed to do it for that long. That doesn't follow at all. No, he's supposed to do public service. It's supposed to be something different from being from having a job. The founding fathers. Absolutely. It'd be awfully shocked to frankly that what are their slaves doing? As in the Senate.
