Peacock is live: Heres everything you need to know

"He caught. The last of the big streaming services has finally launched nationwide, but at joint a crowded room, streaming services, including busy, plus and that Blix. So how does this stack up? I'm Roger, Chang into your daily charge. Beckley I don't have to answer that question because with me. Is Our media expert, John? Salzman and software services. Reviewer Alison. Danisco, welcome both you. Thanks all right so John with you. He is live after having launched in Beta mode to caucus users a couple months ago, so so give us a land now. What is the streaming wards landscape? Look like this is basically the last of the big new services to land at least as far as we know. We had apple and Disney plus come in November than we had depending if you consider it bigger. Bigger not clubby came in April followed by Hbo Max in May, and now finally we have peacock, and it's a little bit different than the rest of those, because it not only is, it has big budget originals big back catalog, like most of those other services do, but it's also doing some other things that are digging a little bit when the others I it has. It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying

Trump commutes Roger Stone's sentence

"Hinted just this morning that he might give his friend Roger Stone. Get out of jail free card. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly created as many people And in the meantime, Comey and all these guys were walking around, including Biden and Obama, and tonight he did commute stone just days before he was set to head to prison. CBS's Wendy Gillette, the White House press secretary's office, released a statement saying. Roger Stone is now a free man. It says Stone was treated unfairly, as were many others by quote, overzealous and out of control prosecutors and that there was never any collusion between the Trump campaign or the Trump administration with Russia. Stone was convicted in November 2019 on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in connection with special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation.

Declassified Susan Rice email shows Obama team discussed Russian dealings

"Well on the occasion last week of the first tranche of the classifications by acting deny Richard Grinnell that provided some detail on all of the unmasking requests that were made by all of the various Obama administration personnel as it pertains to Michael Flynn and perhaps others Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley the two centers in Wisconsin and Iowa respectively want more details more a documents declassified because they have more concern that perhaps the surveillance that was being conducted by Obama administration officials predates operation crossfire hurricane on that occasion last week John Brennan former CIA director took to his safe space and M. S. N. B. C. and had this reaction this is also going out and saying give me everything about Michael Flynn absolutely not and quite interestingly the number of reports so we're in December sixteen and January seventeen that were declassified by Richard Grinnell I was surprised at how many dates and reports that were there then what was the ground should do is to declassify and release the contents of those reports in terms of what's the individuals were involved with but what he's doing now is just releasing the names of individuals who again were carrying out their authorized responsibilities shin director Brennan he's getting there yesterday to classifying a email from Susan rice that seems to run counter to things Susan rice was saying in public from a national security perspective president Obama said he wants to be sure that as we engage with the incoming team are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia rice wrote call me said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flanaess speaking frequently with Russian ambassador Kislyak Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information president Obama asked of Comey was saying the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to flan Comey replied potentially adding that there's no indication thus far that Flynn has passed classified information to kids they act but he noted the level of communication is unusual potentially we should not pass sense of information to the incoming president incoming national security adviser is that properly or or fairly Radisson body trying to insinuate his way into a counterintelligence operation against general Flynn well that's what Susan rice memorialized in an email here's Susan rice back on March twenty second of twenty seventeen just a couple months into the trump administration in a sit down on PBS with Judy Woodruff what she had to say about what she knew do you know anything about this I know nothing about this I was surprised to see reports from chairman Nunes on that count today fresh off her performance in the Benghazi a misdirection cover up however you want to describe it we get this from Susan rice I really don't know what to what chairman Nunez was referring but he said that whatever he was referring to was a legal lawful surveillance and that it was potentially incidental collection on American citizens and I think it's important for people to understand what incidental means that means that the target was a either a foreign entity D. or somebody under criminal investigation and that the Americans who were talking to those targets may have been picked up well Devin newness has since revised and extended his remarks so perhaps is in rice would like to do the same for more on this we're pleased to be joined by Fred flights he's a former CIA analyst now president CEO at center for security policy former Deputy Assistant to the president into the chief of staff of the National Security Council thanks for joining us again forget it good to be here about what Susan rice said in twenty seventeen verses what Susan rice memorialized about this January fifth twenty seventeen meeting well wishers lined clearly she knew that there was electronic surveillance of general Flynn what this comes down to what is the intention of B. bomber stretching from the top from president Obama not to honor the very important principle of our democracy and that's called the peaceful transfer of power under that principle the outgoing administration cooperates fully with the incumbent won eight daughters the the will of the people turned over the keys to the officers tells all about farm policy mission underway gives them all the intelligence operations and intelligence they collected they don't withhold information from the incoming president and Tucker offices to use this information to investigate the next administration to undermine it it's really very serious violation of our whole system of government if they had concerns about general Flynn they had to tell the next administration about it cook told president trump and vice president pence and call me if needed later said he was held information twelve Attorney General sessions about Russia also this is an effort by an outgoing administration to undermine and destroy any incoming

Uber is discussing a takeover deal with Grubhub

"Uber. Making a bid for GRUB and shares of GRUB hub ended on Tuesday up nearly thirty percent down a little bit today but these conversations are ongoing before we get into the particulars. What what was your reaction when you saw that because mine was there are some acquisitions that in the moment you look at them and you think to yourself. Well that makes perfect sense for me. This isn't one of them. But what do you think? Well I don't know if it's something I would say makes perfect sense but I do see the connection there. I mean I certainly see why Uber would be thinking in this direction in and I think that for rub this this could be. Maybe the best way out. I mean the economics food delivery a really tough we've certainly seen that in grubs margins and financial since it's been a publicly traded company and in unfortunately it's not a market that really rewards exclusive relationships. I mean people are just looking to get their food from point. A. Point B. in restaurants. WanNa be able to do that and make sure they can rely on the partners that are delivering that food. So for me like I as I said this is not a market that rewards exclusive relationship so we saw for example when shake shack. Release their earnings here last week. They had exited an exclusive relationship. With GRUB HUB in. We're utilizing more partners. Uber eats be one of those from the restaurants perspective. You know they want to try and bring as many of those partners as they can as they can but it is it is it is. It is a market where you're certainly seeing consolidation. Almost needs to happen because otherwise it's going. It's going to be really difficult for a lot of players to be successful in space. You could see where maybe a couple of players could be successful successful in this space in. I think that with with Uber. We've always asked the question. How ARE THEY GONNA? Levers that network beyond just you know shuttling. People around in Uber eats is definitely one of the ways to do that. Uber eats is certainly performing pretty. Well I mean in in quarter one. They generated four point. Seven billion dollars in gross bookings that was up. Fifty fifty four percent from a year ago in revenues accelerating in that line of work take rates are accelerating as well so. I mean. They're seeing a lot of success for obvious reasons right now. I mean folks are are looking to have more food delivered But but I think with with GRUB HUB. This might just represent the best opportunity for the business and for shareholders because otherwise. They're going to be stuck in this perpetual battle for very very incremental prophets. Right I mean it. It is just not a super high margin business and you know for restaurants they delivery now more than ever So I think I think that will probably continue on for some time. But it's definitely a space where consolidation is starting to happen in. I actually could see grub hub in Uber getting together there in creating really a massive food delivery network that even really extends beyond restaurants right. I mean Breezes Inc Grocery for example they have I think what four thousand parts and thirty five countries with with Comey's car for for example at Cisco I mean they're leveraging that network in good ways and I think this is a sign of things that could a sign of things to come for Uber? That could be good. I mean it's obviously still hemorrhaging cash. And they're gonNA raise some more debt. It sounds like but if this is a deal that happens. It sounds like it'd be an all stock deal another kind of hemming and over the valuation. But I wouldn't be surprised to see this happen. It's funny. You mentioned that talking with our colleague Abby Malan and she's a grow up shareholder and she made it very clear to me. She's not interested in Uber Stock. She was happy to see the spike. In growth hub shares. She would much rather prefer this. Be A cash deal. Because she's not looking for Uber Stock. But it'll be interesting to say to see how the valuation shakes out here because right now with this spike and a little bit of a pullback today grubs valuation is five point three billion. They've said they would sell at evaluation of six point. One billion so that's another fifteen percent upside from. Where is here? It is and you know I mean. These companies will go through negotiations to try to figure out what makes the most sense and that's kind of Nice part about all stock transactions for the come from the company's perspective right. They're essentially just they don't have to dole out physical currency right. I mean shares are currency. But it's not really affecting their pocketbook. Investors are kind of the ones that potentially at screwed there and in. I do feel like Abbie. I agree with that. I'm not really interested in an Uber. Uber's stock today. I mean I think it's a fascinating business to follow. I'm cautiously optimistic. That they will be able to leverage that network overtime in do more things with it. But I think it's GonNa take a while in they clearly. It's GonNa take a long time for them to even achieve any meaningful profitability. So yeah I mean from from the company's perspective that all started you'll makes perfect sense from the investors perspective. Yes I'm a shareholder in this ends up happening then I get you know those. Those Uber Uber shares. For that deal. I probably would look at it going ahead and selling those uber shares and putting that money to work elsewhere. Because any way you put it I mean food deliveries just. It's just a really tough business. I mean we saw not all that long ago we're square on loaded the The caviar side of the business right I mean they. They dipped a toe in that market thinking that might be something complementary to their business. It turned out it really wasn't turns out. It's just really hard work. It wasn't something that lined up or leveraged their existing business to the degree they felt like made sense in so I think yeah I mean this kind of it makes me think a little bit of satellite radio in your head series. Xm and Yeah Sirius Radio and yet XM radio and then they merged to form the one big provider in that space. I mean I ultimately could could honestly see being just like a one or two really big providers in the space but time will tell.

Barr says FBI tried to lay a "perjury trap" for Flynn

"Well Michael Flynn is finally free from the department of justice and the FBI you know they really destroyed his life at Mattel intent telling you all about Michael Flynn here in the last couple of days as has all the host on W. B. A. P. of course this is been an ongoing story they absolutely destroyed his life your member Michael Flynn he was there in the trump administration and they really went after him with an intensity and vigor and the reason why they did was because they were trying to destroy not only Michael Flynn but the trump administration now remember the lead up to all of this the FBI here in the last several days was found to have tried to set up Flynn you remember the notes that they found they were finally released but the hand written notes that basically proved that the FBI we're trying to set him up to why they call it a perjury trap so that they could either get him fired or arrest him now my point with the whole Michael Flynn story is that they're trying to get him fired or arrest him get him to lie whatever wise so that they could continue down the path of the Russian Russian investigation and ultimately the Muller investigation see that's what they were trying to do the big question here with Michael Flynn is how high up did all of this go get it go all the way up to the office of Barack Obama and conversely Joe Biden see this has a lot of people on the laughter saying you know what this is all such old news Michael Flynn whatever this doesn't matter it does matter it matters because of Joe Biden it matters because Biden has been running partially on his eight years as vice president with Barack Obama so if Biden was in on the whole Flynn perjury trap thing which I believe that he was then that matters right now I mean to me it matters anyway but if I'm gonna sit here and argue with some of these leftists who you know would say Michael Flynn the whole thing doesn't matter you know if he pleaded guilty anyway well that doesn't matter the reason why Michael Flynn pleaded guilty was because he was losing everything do you know Michael Flynn is four point five million dollars in legal fees that's what the FBI did to an innocent man it is absolutely abhorrent and so the president heard that Michael Flynn the charges were being dropped against him and he was ecstatic I didn't know that was happening at this moment I felt it was going to happen just like watching and seeing like everybody else does he was an innocent man he is a a great gentleman he was targeted by the Obama administration yeah yeah again very big news and what they wanted to do was they wanted to again continue down the path of the Russian investigation and ultimately lead to the special counsel investigation which ultimately blew up and the F. B. I.'s face but the whole point is that they were trying to destroy president trump's first term they wanted a high jacket because he was going to dismantle Obama's policies and they didn't like that the deep swamp the deep state in the swamp they absolutely wanted to do whatever they could to derail the charges and so now the to derail the trump administration and so now the DOJ said in dropping the charges in this was earlier today this is a quote the announcement came in a court filing after a considered a review of all the facts and all the circumstances of this case including newly discovered and disclosed information as the department put at DOJ officials said they concluded that Flynn's interview by the FBI was untethered to you and I'm justified by the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Mr Flynn and that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis yes in the end here's the frustrating thing they knew that they didn't have anything on Michael Flynn yet they continue down that road and here's another question why in the hell did it take so long for them to finally the DOJ to finally drop the charges why is this taking so long I believe they were forced into it I believe that when the notes were discovered in in some of these other and this some of this other exculpatory evidence was discovered and that that exculpatory evidence you know evidence that would prove that Michael Flynn was innocent of all of this was kept under wraps then the department of justice they had no choice but to raise their hands and say yeah we screwed up you know this was Obama's FBI this was James Comey's FBI and you know Christopher Wray and all these folks currently leading the FBI you know they're out there saying well now yeah you know we we've been looking at this we've been watching this we've been considering what to do with all of this ride you were absolutely shame to what I would say because a lot of Republicans are now saying that the F.

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

Let's get into this conversation with Shira and I hope you enjoy high sheera. Thank you for joining me. And welcome to nutrition matters podcast. Thank you page so excited to be here so excited to finally have you on. This has been a longtime comey. I now feel like we talked about a year ago or something. Yeah lots has happened since. Then which is exactly what will be talking about today. So Oh so sure. Will you take a minute and just kind of introduce yourself to any listeners? Who might not already know you or be familiar with your work. Sure so I'm a therapist. And I practice in Chelsea Manhattan and I work with eating disorders disordered eating body image and all from very passionate health at every size framework and. I'm also a start up. Fashion Blogger where it really. Just basically exclusively only fashion and then transitioned to being very vocal about health at every size an inclusive fashion. And the and you know and I started talking about my own eating disorder recovery and so is kind of a whole bunch of stuff on my blog as well. When did you start? When did you start your blog? I started my blog right when I graduated social work school so I guess at this point it's been like seven. Years has been quite a while and talk about what you do there and kind of what the mission has been. I'm so I'm very passionate about making sure that the fashion that I share is as inclusive as possible. I wish I could make sure. There is options up to size forty and fifty and beyond but unfortunately our fashion our plus size. Fashion is still so problematic so I do my best at least include up to size twenty six twenty eight and as much as I can. And that's the minimum that all make sure that we have listed but basically it's just important to me that nobody this is not another place where somebody feels bad about themselves or not included. Because that is I feel like happened so much everywhere else and I wanted to be where you get it from me as well. Yeah you're also really passionate about rainbows and sequins UNICORNS mentioned colorful. Oh my gosh. Yes you're not gonNA see anything remotely minimalistic on my tape. That's what you're looking for. Go somewhere else right. No no no. That's to sad for me. That just makes me sad all the color full color I love it. I'm wearing a tie dye sweatshirt that you were. You were excited about today. So I'm I'm probably going to steal it from you somehow across okay. Maybe we'll we can find it. I'll find where where my sister bought it. Send it your way very come on a mission. Okay so so sure you have been a therapist. You said for seven years. Yeah I graduated Skoll twenty four and then I started practicing four twenty five thirty one now. So yeah so and you've always been in the eating disorder field in your entire career. Is that right yet? I mean when I first started kind of happen accidentally. I had my own disordered. Eating disorder passed. And so I thought you know I kind of thought what we learn is you. Don't go into eating sodas if you have an eating disorder. It's I kind of just stayed away when I was working in general clinic so I saw everything and everyone And then I saw client. Who had an eating disorder and I was like? Oh this is what I WANNA do. This is what I mentioned you and so the my supervisor kind of agreed with as well. She didn't know my history but she felt like I did. Good work so she kept giving me more eating disorder clients and then I kind of just kind of when I realized that. That's what I really want to be doing. And so then they actively pursued it so tell me like what clicked with that first client like what did you. What did you feel? What did you love about it? I just felt like I love kids and I. That's what I was seeing. A lot of. That was fine by was getting bored. And then I saw this client and a wasn't board and I was excited. I was passionate and I felt like I just I got it and I WANNA be careful to say that just because I have my own eating disorder. It doesn't mean that I think I know. Whatever else is what everyone else's experiences are like. Everyone has such unique stories. And that's really important to to know but I just was able to get this in the struggle on a level. Maybe that other people might not in so I just fell just important and it just felt like something. I don't know I was meant to do this. Kind of just like that. Unexplainable like this is what you're you're called to do. This is what you WANNA do. Yeah and I think also because I had a few clients who were never never felt safe in their bodies and I was able to be a therapist that again like work from a health at every size framework even instinctively before I even had the words for it when it first started. I think that was important for me. Knowing how I grew up in how unsafe I was larger body. I never ever wanted anyone to experience that and so if felt pretty good to be able to provide that for other people.

No prayer, no justice with Pete Greig

"Hello and welcome to the together. Podcast conversation about faith justice how to change the world. I'm Don and today I'm joined remotely by Cat and Chris how you guys doing. Yeah so we're trying to recall this remotely so it might have to kind of feel the Z. Meeting where we will interrupt each other and everybody. Everybody says no Yuko common phrase in the English dictionary they have to offer. You have to get really solid. Should be appointed leader. You just how everyone wants to do every single cigars how how you doing. What's your. What's your view like right in this moment? So we're working from home and do you have a good little south there. Yeah I've gone inflatable. Jesus next to me Nice context or just I just I just put him in there to just keep me company so I feel like I've got some workers. Excuse this yeah. I'm still your coworker by not having been actually in my little music station where normally record at home so nice very home for me. Yeah this is. This must be familiar for you. Sat there if you just start in some freestyle staff just because you're in the zone and that's absolutely fine. I think that's go- keyboard as well. Let's go for it. How prepared as everybody knows. He's listening to this where we're in lockdown currently just heading into week four of lockdown guys. What would your one top tip be for for anybody in this situation? Either to keep them saying. Keep them entertained to keep that routine. What would your tip be if you were to give someone a tip if you were to travel back in time for weeks and say to someone that this is coming. This is my one bit for device. Fear what would that be stuck up on toilet row? You'd be that person to left so we go brave shops fine now. There's loads of them there as well. They're just make the mice of light the outdoors. What's the outdoors magical place that I guess? Your question is what their advice would be before lockdown or during OCTA down town. Yeah I think I think definitely like utilizing your one one more day because I did miss a couple. That was a time. I Wen- went out on Saturday and then didn't go out again until the following Saturday and that felt ways. That is extremely down is mine would be to start your car. You never know. It's just GonNa say it once a day but don't shouldn't you like run it for a while as well because he just started and turn off at actually die for a little bit because obviously needed to get supplies say that part is important but in terms of like an actual like like psychological spiritual thing for you to help you life. I'd say give yourself a grace is retained great for now. Of course I think is really important. Everyone tries to get routine. But if you don't not one day by the end of the world was talking to my cousin. Struggle moves like putting on weight. Meanwhile disguise like he's skinny but yeah. I think yeah a little bit more than you normally do like fine. Don't worry I like Chris. I really needed to hear that because I've been struggling to get up in the morning. I think my my two bits of advice. I one is similar to what you were just saying. But I don't know about you guys when you wake up. Naveh shower wherever you come to get dressed. The temptation to put on the jogging bottoms is strong. My advice would a always reach for the jeans or or you could go smarter and just go. Trousers like full-on save by. I think I think just getting wearing clothes that you would wear out does helps me get ready in the right frame of mind. So that's that's one kind of half joke but also have serious. I think the one that someone shared as many words use everyday call someone. You haven't spoken to in three months and so there's quite good now jumping on zoom cores in house party and that kind of thing and talking to the people that we would see every day and that's important But really this also provides us the opportunity to get back in touch with people. We haven't spoken to for a while checking them say. Hey so that might be a fan core even dropping a text or anything and so. That's been quite good because it's been my mind okay. Who who should I do? Should I take a call today? And then you kind of build up. Some momentum happened in that for over a week now and then you start up conversations with people you haven't spoken to you for a while so definitely worth worth trying that one out. That's really grow their start off. That's so they go guys. There's some advice fee listening out there in lockdown but that was just waffle. Because I know you've been waiting for the the pivotal moment in the cast. Is CATS QUESTIONS SECA? Everybody who's WHO's waiting for. This was going to say out of their misery. They're awaiting such excitement. Put them out of their excitement cat. What is today's cats questions? Well I feel like Chris missed out on one last week. It actually has come from last week's question. Technically the question that Donald Smith came about the the sources in the fridge or in the coverage so then I saw the the the popular COMBI Ketchup on May. What do you guys think about that fully behind the I o back that until the day I die so it was the question. Would I combine the two off with story number? Yeah what do you think about the Combi of catch up on the massive financially okay? We'll see this is not going to wear. That was two thousand. I thank the Combo wrong. Okay Chrissie pretend that you hate all. I'll say that I like it and that makes better listening. But now I think particularly so my if I have potato wedges than I'm a massive fan I don't necessarily mix the two sources so have catch up on one side in a catch-up area and Mayor Mayor area but over time I will kind of dip in water and dip in the other and so there is a bit of cross contamination by the I have to mix it all in now we now we get into the French. What are you playing around you? Just get it in that and a mix up percent homemade burger sous why I normally would like my first chip will be will be the one that is blessed to be the mixer and Mitch over. My first chip is usually the one where the my slavers were Say I've got a lockdown special question question if if you could only have one streaming platform from now. What would it be Youtube? Oh Art and eat meat. I didn't even think about Youtube. I was thinking was thinking more. You're paid for services. Bedtime occurs tightly. Yeah if we're talking like free as definitely Youtube paid services I think is between spotify and Net flix. Yeah nobody listen to as much music since I've been stuck in the house. So maybe I think for me. I'm between net flicks and Disney plus because on the partic- plus we're going through the marvel films in order of release guy say currently on Captain America. So I think if I lost that now the devastation equally with net flicks. I need to find out what happens to carol by skin. So three episodes four episodes of targeting with about three episodes left so yeah I think I think it would be between those two if I had to probably Disney plus just until I finish marble. Wild is big so huge. Yeah plus frozen to say what is the deal with Thai King on Comey actually of unique? Because everyone everyone has been telling me to watch it and then so we sat down and watched the trailer yesterday. And it just looks. Renders is marred. It's it's something that you couldn't possibly Ri- I'm only four episodes in but the twists and the complexity and the characters kind of characters. They're real people. Surprisingly people popping up from nowhere and then seventy just becoming major characters in this in this real life story.

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very

Special Episode on How AI is Helping to Fight the Global Pandemic

"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast this is actually a specially. Today podcast episode. I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer and I'm your host Kathleen mulch today. We're GONNA be talking about how. Ai Is helping to fight global pandemics as you can imagine we are in a global pandemic right now and so we wanted to spend some time on this special podcast talking about how AI is helping to detect co vid fight coated help promote workers and then also how it can be used to help predict the economic impact that this is going to have been paying attention to the news or maybe you're actually listening to this podcast probably a year from now. It's possible people. Listening to our podcast. Even way back to the twenty seventeen will where we are right now. Here when we're recording this podcast in two thousand twenty. We're in the midst of a global pandemic that has really impacted the whole world. You know starting in China. The Corona virus this latest iteration of the Krona virus called Kovic. Nineteen is a strand of illness that has been known that's particularly infectious and has a fairly high mortality rate. Because it's a respiratory illness it's related to other respiratory illnesses like Moore's which is the Middle East respiratory syndrome and SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome. Usually we've been dealing with these sorts of epidemics that have happened in regional places and sort of dealt with them as part of our general healthcare system but this time around it has impacted the world and it's traveling at such a high rate that it's something the whole world has paid attention to and we've dealt with it with some pretty significant measures right everything from you know you can't leave your house and you'd be no social distancing and all these things that are really trying to reduce the impact and spread of this very pernicious virus right because this disease spreads quickly like you said and it's affected basically every single part of the world so right now it has a presence in one hundred and eighty seven countries which is just about every single country in the world and the total number of cases. As of this podcast is rapidly approaching half a million and that's people that have actually been tested and tested for Corona virus. And then there's also been over twenty thousand deaths recorded worldwide as well which is just devastating. So as you can imagine you know. This is very wide spreading fast spreading and it's affecting everybody in every aspect of life and that's why we felt it was important today to have a podcast devoted to this so rahm gave a little bit of background about what is Kovic. Nineteen but how can we detect it? And how can we use? Ai To help detect and treat covert right because at the moment there's no vaccine for Kovic so things that were just trying to mitigate near they're trying to prevent people from spreading this disease and we're trying to find ways to treat it and also there's all these other impacts that Cova having because it's forcing people to work from home so we now have this great experiment where ninety percent of the workforce is a work from home. Of course we've never had remote workers in these quantities but it's also having a tremendous economic impact. You know every person event that's happening right now has been cancelled so no south by South West this year at least so far you know none of these other big events and so people are like moving onto online conferencing. Well that's having another impact on the Internet systems and we're having economic impacts healthcare impacts of course impacts on everything so of course the one place for us to start. I is that is such a transformative technology that it can help with all these factors it can help with the economic the Internet and of course the healthcare impacts and so starting with the most important. Let's focus on how a is actually working to help find and in cure and find treatments for covet and potential cures for treatment. So there's been a lot of interesting activity happening as you can imagine. We have great data scientists who work at these amazing technology companies who have a huge amount of data and tons of compute power. And you can bet that. They are applying that intelligence in those that experience to the challenge of finding treatments for Cova. So we have some examples from. Comey's every announced their various things. We'll tell you about some of the things that have been out and announced so far right so one company deep mind which listeners. I'm sure that you might have heard. Us talk about in previous podcasts. They were acquired by Google. They recently put on the Internet. The sequencing of six protein structures that are linked to Kovic nineteen and. It's too early to verify these results. But it's hopeful that companies like this are working in trying to figure out solutions also. The White House recently put a researchers. They're tasking them to help. Figure this out because this is truly a global pandemic so the United States was a little bit slow on the uptake of Kobe. Nineteen but the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has urged researchers to employ ai to find solutions to this cova problem. So that's promising that we're hearing the government say you know researchers? Please put effort into this.

2019 Game Publisher Rankings

"Let's talk about the publisher. Rankings is a yearly feature though. I always end up talking about because it's actually a feature. That metacritic puts together where they rank all the publishers based on a few factors the average metascore for all games released in a year. That we're looking at twenty nine thousand nine. The percents of games that got good reviews which is a seventy-five or higher the percents that got great reviews which is nine hundred ninety or higher and then they take away points for the number of games that got bad reviews forty nine or lower the crunch those numbers and they come up with a list of all the publishers ranked. So we're going to go through the top ten for we before we dive into the or any any sort of predictions Nintendo zone. Yeah because they have such a weird situation where they produced so many internal games and then they reviewed a lot more because they're Nintendo so they just had the slight conflicts of high scores and high volume. Okay so you're expecting intended to be high on the list okay. Let's see number. Ten beginning with number ten was developer. No reliable publisher average review score in Twenty nineteen seventy-six. They had about yeah. They put out down while on switch which I still need to play. Excessive Vertical Flip Game wore number nine was square necks with an average review. Score of seventy six point one. This is just for the year is twenty nine thousand.

"He's not a CIA informant like. They say he's not talking to the CIA when they were specifically told they war but you know mistakes were made right. I mean we're crazy. We're or so crazy for saying this was an attempt to deep State Co.. This is just You know fucking misconduct mistakes just mistake. He said he was talking to the CIA. We said he wasn't wasn't got it wrong. This is so this is so crazy. All right let's keep buying. FBI was accused of criminal misconduct. Mariah was gone to jail L. and lots of other people are going to jail. People on this network said it over and over and over again. The Inspector General did not find misconduct by F. B. I.. Personnel did not find political bias. Did Not find the legal conduct. Inspector General found significant mistakes puzzle one more time. Oh yeah there was this whole conspiracy and I was going to jail and people on this network said it over and over and over again. It's like okay. This is the thing where I said I just tell the opposite of the truth. You say you did it instead of I did it but can you imagine so people were saying so. This is the standard that we're setting people were saying something over and over again on network that turned out to not be true. Isn't isn't that an outrage. What was really said over and over again on the networks that turned out to not be true guys remember anything about trump Russia collusion? You remember that getting repeated on the networks over and over again that turned out to not be true but no James Komi is the big victim here because people were saying he was going to go to jail for the record. I've never said James Comey is going to go to jail. Said many times James Comey should go to jail. But I don't have any faith in these bullshit institution so I know it's not going to happen because they're not actually interested in justice. But you imagine like even saying this even saying this about like this is the deep deep state take on the trump Russia investigation or people on. TV kept saying that we were going to go to jail or not. I actually remember the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. We played it on the show here. I think a couple different times saying a couple of weeks before the investigation that trump and his family were going to go to jail. Remember that he's still got all these all these fucking a indictments to serve. They said that on TV that didn't turn out to be true and none of them or fucking admitting anything let's keep going to sneeze at. That's really important. But the American people especially your viewers need to realize they were given false information about about the FBI. It's honest it is not political. It is flawed. Would you agree that the Pfizer court was also given false information by the FBI. I I think that's fair. The FBI should have included early. Push to the lawyers so they can make a decision information that you just said things like that another agency not a source relationship. But it's some kind of contact relationship. I WANNA I WANNA get to three last questions and one of them has to do with. How serious what this is you talked a lot? What about mistakes or sloppiness? Horowitz concludes three separate teams made significant errors in four separate FIS applications on one of the FBI's most significant cases of the investigation of president trump and his campaign he was trump. have to keep breaking up. President trump was not being invested. His campaign was not being investigated for Americans to whom are no longer associated with the campaign being about him he was asked how he explains visit. Horowitz areas. It's unclear what the motivations were on the one hand gross incompetence negligence on the other hand. Intention -ality gross negligence. Were they intended to do what they intended to lie to. The flies record you you were in charge during a lot of this. I just have to use you. Signed the FIS applications. Sure I think I signed at least two or three of them. He doesn't conclude that there was intentional misconduct by these career especially as one of two things and he can't decide gross negligence or was intentional misconduct. One second because I just think it's worth pointing out right so this is what the Inspector Inspector General is testifying here. He's going look the only things that could that that that you the only conclusion that you can reach here is that it's one of two do things. It's either gross negligence or intention analogy and I can't tell you which one is which already to me is just crazy because it's so obvious obvious which one it is gross negligence that includes pushing something like gross negligence is when you forget to do something. It's not when you very intentionally remove a name or renew. Remove that someone's age and like you're very purposely trying to cover your tracks in trying to paint a picture of information here to get approval on something that's not gross negligence. Gross negligence is when you forget things and gross. I mean it look it just seems insane mean to me literally I mean I. I can't think of a better word to describe it. It seems insane to me that anybody could look at these facts and in any way in their mind believed that this was gross negligence and not intentional. I mean first of right like everything you just said is spot on but also wouldn't gross negligence like wouldn't it. Why is it always going going in one direction? Would Hebrews negligent some at some point working like trump's favor like we were so negligent that we didn't WANNA re up the Pfizer rate. Like why is it always always going in this direction of deep state attempted coup. Like the. It's not the deep state attempting a coup. It's just the deep state like bumbling their way into an attempted curly you'd have to claim that the gross negligence is in their decision to pursue. The trump should be spied on without having a full understanding of why they wanted. How did that in other words? It's like they sat around and they concluded. Hey we're going to go through with this doesn't matter what the cost. It doesn't matter but like they were being negligent. It's not that it was for political reasons. Fins they just kind of came to a bad decision to go spy on trump right. But that doesn't really make sense. And then you see the way and by the way at the other thing that Qomi said there which is I kinship. Like fucking bullshit is he goes no we. We were investigating people on Trump's team not donald trump right. Okay now first of all Andrew McCabe specifically said that they were investigating Donald Trump and he said that wall Komi was there they were investigating trump and this is like an. Does anybody seriously seriously believe that they would have just done this about Carter page if Carter Page hadn't have been attached to this campaign. Does anybody believe that. Look Paul Manafort and the crimes that he committed were all committed long before he was on trump's campaign. They never wanted to go after him until he was on. Trump's campaign does anybody anybody really thinks that the FBI would have done all of this to go after Carter Page for because they thought he was working with the Russians and go oh then the CIA comes in and tells them No. He's been an informing us about all of his meetings with the Russians. And they go now. We're still going to try to spy on Carter page US citizen Carter Page unattached to the campaign. Anyone believe that and then and then James Comey does. This was saying before like thank God. I'm not full of Shit and to all you people listening who aren't full of Shit. Be Thankful for that. It's such a better way to live to just not happy a foolish person. I mean you could get things wrong. I'm sure we all do. I'm sure I've gotten things wrong. I know I've gotten things wrong before but when you're not full of Shit you don't after like just like how do you look at yourself in the mirror after this interview James Comey goes. He plays the Inspector General's clip going the only two possible explanations explanations for this our gross negligence or intention -ality and I couldn't really determine what was going on here which by the way I already think is crazy because it's so obvious this was intentionally but then James Comey's response to that that we just heard is going well. He said he didn't determine that it was intentional. Ovalles God the Spin Spin the slimy spin that you have to go through to say. I don't know what you just heard what I heard was. He couldn't determine that it was intention. Nowadays it's well. That's not exactly what he said. He said. It's either gross negligence or intention and I can't really tell which one it is and again I just this. It's so painfully obvious. All right let's play. I've read his the report he says I. We are not concluding that there was intentional misconduct. We have just said here did. I don't know the context that I've read was asked specifically. How do you explain it? That's the context negligence. Or intention -ality yeah. Well I'm sorry he doesn't find attention outy but that doesn't make it any less important as director. You are responsible for this. I was responsible for this and if I were still there. It'd be doing what Chris Wray is doing is figuring out. So how did this happen and is it systemic. Because that's the scariest thought. Is that if you were builder and all of this came out and it turned out it happened on your watch. Would you resign no. I don't think so there were mistakes. I consider more consequential than this during my tenure. An important thing is to be transparent about it and look just pause dude. took the words right out of my mouth. How do you go I understand? I'm just kind of speaking in jest. Where if he says that House Chris Walls response to that not just like okay? Well we got to keep you here here for another hour and cancel all of our other guests because we have to get into that. You're telling me there were mistakes that had way more were way more consequential in your in your term like what the fuck were those because this was a pretty consequential mistake that you made. There's there's still a huge portion of the country that believes that Donald trump is working with a hostile foreign power. You literally you played a huge role in tearing this country. Apart and stalling stalling a democratically elected president of the United States of America. Okay that that seems to be pretty big consequence. So what are these other things things and let's not forget how credible institution the FBI is right. Yes yes that's right. So that's exactly right like we're not allowed to tarnish this great institution but there it is from from the horse's mouth that This is the fuck up way worse than this night instead. Down Way. Worse all right. Let's keep playing couple of final questions skins as you know attorney. General Bar has been harshly critical of how the FBI conducted this entire operation. Here's how he reacted to the I.. These findings of whatever you WANNA call it in the handling of the FIS. Applications these irregularities these misstatements these omissions missions were not satisfactorily explained and saying that leaves open the possibility to infer bad faith given given the repeated errors some would say abuses of the FIS of process does attorney general bar have appoint no he does not have a factual basis as the attorney general. You know the United States to be speculating. That agents acted in bad faith. The facts just aren't there full stop. That doesn't make it any less consequential any less important. But that's not responsible statement finally positive right there after all of the statements that Komo's made over the last two years over this that goes. That's an irresponsible statement. That's up that's irresponsible for him to say. Well by the way the most fucking pussyfooting unlike like fucking cookie like Fr- that Barr could say which is what I was. Criticizing him for focusing on the last show is that he sit there and go like Yeah I mean it does leave. Open the possibility that maybe you could think there were some bad intentions here. Oh that's irresponsible but to say to look the American people in the eye and go the FIS of process was perfect and flawless. And we did everything right. That's not just hours wrong. I was wrong but this is.

"Never go to the post office again. All right let's get back into the show. Let's go a huge part of the presentation to the court. But it was the fact. According to his report that convinced the lawyers to go forward all right. Then there's the issue of how reliable so the steele dossier in fact was on January six twenty seventeen in the trump tower you breath. Donald trump president elect about the steele deal dossier that same month the FBI talks to steel's main Russian contact name person whom he based the dossier who says according according to the report quote steel misstated or exaggerated the primary sub sources statements in multiple sections of the reporting director director. Comey not only do you fail to go back to. The president elect or president after January twentieth. And tell him. Oh that report. I briefed you on turns out it's bunk but at the FBI can goes back and renews. Its five the application three more times and by this point the FBI knows that this this deal reporting is not credible. Yeah I think you're mischaracterizing. Both what the FBI knew what. Mr Harwood says in his report. They didn't conclude the reporting. According from Steele was bunk. They concluded there were significant questions about the reliability of some of the sub source reporting. That should have been included in the renewals but when I reached the president I briefed him on a small part of it that I told him I didn't know whether it was true or not. I didn't care. I just needed him to know about it. I think you're mischaracterizing. Steel isn't a rather Horowitz. Isn't saying that the that the sub source the Russian contact was unreliable was inaccurate. The Russian contact said to the FBI. Steel is unreliable because he misrepresented steel misstated or exaggerated the sources statements in multiple sections. The report he's saying I told him one thing and he wrote something else the FBI knew that here but that doesn't drive conclusion that steals reporting his bunk as a number of tricky. Tricky things to that I. You're interviewing the sub source after all the reporting has become public and so as a counter intelligence investigation. You have to think easy walking away from it because it's now public and that has to go into your assessment Mr. It hadn't hit become public just barely. This is in January. Two thousand seventeen. This is in two years later right. This is when it blew up when it was published by whatever. The outfit is buzz feed. It was all over the news and become a big deal and so i. Did you know all of this all of everything that we're talking about here. Did you know that. In fact the steel report was the key probable. Cause did you know that the FBI had talked to the Russian contact tact and he said what Steele said he portrayed here so this is a real interesting question that Mike Wallace is asking him or Chris. Wallace rather is is asking him here. Because this is what it all comes down to right. Did you know all of this because if you knew all of this that changes everything from Ohio was wrong about that. Oh you're lying. You're just blatantly lying according to the American people. Because if you didn't know all of this then like yeah okay now by the way okay. Technically maybe he's not wrong. Just because you prove that somebody he comes up with a report a dossier and lies a whole bunch of times that it doesn't prove that everything in the report ally but it does prove that you can't trust anything this guy. I sing like by saying the whole thing's bunk. I mean like if this guy is lying and even the people he's sourcing and they are going he lied. He made this up then. Yeah you can't trust anything he's saying. Why would you need to present Donald Trump with this salacious information? It makes no sense but the question now is. Did you know all of this at the time did you. We know what's going on. And this is a very interesting position that he puts James Comb because James Comey you can only say one of two things either. You did no you. He didn't know if you did know. Then you're basically your your whole spot is blown up. Your whole spot is blown up and you now lied to the American people people and now it doesn't now. you're not so vindicated from that thing you said at the very beginning right because if you say you did no well. Then you're not really indicated that this was all some fucking you know what I mean conspiracy to get Donald Trump. Because why else would you be lying to the American people going out of your way going on a book tour going on Cable News talking to the press. It's like all of this shit. Why would you be doing that lying? And making people think there is something to this investigation when you know the grounds of were complete bullshit and then the other option is no. I didn't know which just makes you look like a really incompetent. FBI Director at the very least makes you realize you were terrible at your job like you didn't know this bullshit. Investigation was going on under you so we offer them too bad choices but one is pretty clearly worse than the other the worst option. There's that you knew in lied so we could never believe anything you say again and also you should possibly be tried for trying to unseat a democratically elected president. So those are your options one's worse than the other. It's pretty obvious which is going to take and he takes it. Let's play told him was not true. Did you know this you're the FBI. Director I again. The report will speak for itself. I don't believe the FBI concluded that steals reporting was bunk after talking to a sub source. But no I didn't as the director you not kept informed on the details of an investigation so no in general. I didn't know what they learned from the sub source I didn't know the particulars of the investigation. Some investigations are. This is an investigation of the campaign of the man. Who is the president of the United States you just been through a firestorm investigating Hillary Clinton? I would think if I were in your position I would have been on that. You know like a like a junkyard dog. I would've the one. I know everything they were doing. And investigating the trump campaign now. That's not the way it works though as as a director sitting on top of an organization of thirty eight thousand people. You can't run an investigation. Gatien that's seven layers below. You have to leave it to the career professionals to do to the special agents. Who Do this for? Their lives of director tries to run an investigation. It'll it'll get mucked up in all different kinds of ways given his or her responsibilities and the impossibility of reaching the work that's being done at the lower level and then he it lets them off the hook You know so easy there. Because of course Chris Wallace. You know Kinda sucks but what bullshit ads and you know and you can always tell. Well I mean come on you guys like. It isn't easy to see the trickery that goes on here. Well you can't try to run the investigations. No one asked you if you were going to run the the investigation saying are you aware of the basic facts of the undoubtedly biggest investigation. That will ever happen at the FBI BI probably in the FBI history certainly in your reign as director of the FBI. The most important biggest investigation. And it's based off this bullshit dossier and they're going re upping like really the FBI director. We're not talking about obviously. There's thousands of people who work under you and all this stuff often. There's hundreds of investigations that are going on. We understand but this one involves spying on a presidential campaign this one. We're talking about after Donald. Trump's won the presidency. He's the president-elect you're talking about reopening Pfizer investigations on the man who you know is going to be president of the United United States of America. That one you're not like hey what's going on with the evidence here. No one's reporting to you. What's happening okay? If that is the case rate right if that if it if it is the case says number one you're a horribly incompetent director of the FBI and number two the. I've never heard a stronger stronger case made by anyone that the F. B. I.. needs to be rolled back. I mean if not abolished then drastically drastically rolled back. Because what he's saying is well. You have to rely lie on the career. Investigators you have to rely on all of these. People who weren't appointed by the president aren't democratically elected. Just these people who got it completely completely wrong and if they do nobody up top is really going to be watching over them. They kind of have the power to you. Know basically stall a presidential administration for two years. I don't know now don't by the way don't get it twisted with the I G report found. They may have said they won't see they're not going into whether it was politically motivated or not. But they the real damning evidence the most damning part of the report was the relapse of the Pfizer warrants. When because when they go into to renew the Pfizer warrants this is when they know they know the steele dossier full of Shit they know all of this stuff is bullshit and they keep misleading? The FIS accords. He's going to claim he just didn't know but of course we all like I said at the beginning we know why he's doing this. Because the other alternative which is obviously the truth that he did know what was going on here where the alternative to that is so much worse than him just saying well. I didn't know they were beneath me. That's not how it works. I don't run the investigation. The alternativas rivers and being like. Yeah we knew what we were doing. And that's much more damning so he can't say that All right. Let's keep lying for last the worst misconduct in August of twenty twenty sixteen just two weeks into the investigation the CIA tells the FBI that it actually has a relationship with Carter page that when he has these meetings with the Russians. He's actually goes back and he tells the CIA about it. But you never tell the Pfizer court that and in fact in two thousand seventeen an F. B. I.. Lawyer Doctors Document the CIA said. Oh Carter page. He's a source and he puts in the application. He's not a source gives take issue with one of the answer. The question one of the predication to your question. The Inspector General did not find misconduct by any FBI people found mistakes and negligent in overseeing. No no no. That's not true. In the case of Kevin Kline Smith he is referred for a criminal investigation right. But that's not been resolved this business with the lawyer changing some email to partner on the team you so you make it sound like it's not much it's very important. It's very. I mean not a source to not a source. It's a big remember. How full of Shit is this guy? Go well the report did not find any misconduct. Well that's not true. He did find misconduct and he's referred one for criminal conduct because that hasn't been resolved yet here but that's not what you said. This bullshit attempted to move the goal posts every time a question you just said five seconds ago that the I didn't find any misconduct he just found mistakes in all of this which by which already is infuriating. Even if it's not it's Oh yeah that's right. It's not misconduct. It's just a mistake. Don't get it twisted understand what you're hearing here Carter page was a CIA informant. He would go have meetings with Russians and then report it back to the CIA yea and then the FBI is going. He's meeting with the Russians and the CIA tells the FBI. He's reporting back to us what the Russians are saying to him wall. Aw the FBI is applying for five warrant against Carter Page and they doctored the memo to take out the fact that Carter page was CIA CIA. Were informant okay. So they doctor that so it doesn't tell them back and not only that they put in the memo..

"Jim comey's never at fault for anything ever never sanctimonious <hes> um now. What did jim komi do wrong now. I think this report is going to focus on his leaks to the media but but i want to point out a couple of other problems where i'm not sure it's going to be in a report. I'm not gonna lie to you. Might sources are telling me it's going to pretty much focus exclusively on the leaks of the komi memos to his buddies that had at a minimum sensitive information and i'll get to that in a second why that's a problem for komi too but here's a couple of things that i wish swear in there that may or may not be and we'll know so do not miss tomorrow. Marceau's gonna because i have so much here. The show is just like drop upon on drop today of nuclear in false. Here's a problem we're going to have this is a cut yo and i have used gosh joe this thing in a file because it comes to yeah we've used this cut probably ten or fifteen times. Here's where jim komi is in a world of trouble outside of the leaks which i think he's going to be exposed on and decide gee report about his activities ladies ladies and gentlemen jim komi according to precedent an agreement with congress not necessarily hard policy is supposed to brief congress quarterly meeting every three months for liberals who have a tough time with math every three months on sensitive investigations. This is at least the phonic from my believe march of twenty seventeen at least the phonic represented from congress asking jim komi when he briefed congress member. He's supposed to do it every three months. <hes> about the existence of the most sensitive investigation modern american history the spy gay case spying operation that trump listened to the sleaze balls answer check this out. My first first set of questions are directed at director komi broadly when the f._b._i. Has any open counterintelligence investigation. What are the typical protocols or the procedures for notifying the deny the white house and senior congressional leadership there is a the practice of a quarterly briefing on sensitive cases to the chair and ranking of the house and senate intelligence committees and the reason i hesitate is thanks to feedback. We've got we're trying to make it better and that involves a briefing of the department of justice believe deny and the <hes> some portion of the national security council at the white house so if that's order leaves them before congress is briefed so it's quarterly for all three then senior congressional rational leadership the white house and the deny. I think that's right now. That's by practice not by ruler by written policy which is why thanks to the chair and rank and giving us feedback. We're trying to tweak certain ways so since in your opening statement you confirmed that there is a counterintelligence investigation currently open and you also reference that it started in july. When did you notify deny the white house or senior congressional leadership. It's a good question in congressional leadership sometime recently they were briefed on the nature of the investigation some details i said aw okeydokey ease smokey so a couple of things here call me always thinks he's too smart by the way ladies generally we literally have an update right now on the komi reports. Don't go anywhere. I mean wild. That clip was playing just came over my phone. I'm reading it right now. So i'll give you an update taste good stuff. Why is jim komi in trouble again. He always moves around the edges of decency and claims is like it was the moral high ground. It's not a hard policy that he has the brian break any laws binoche briefing congress but he acknowledged himself that it's practice to brief congress every three months about sensitive investigations. At least the phonic asks this question joe..
