"Yeah. Big news. She said. Yes. My girlfriend loved the rings so much she started to cry. Got to hand it to shame company. They made it easy for me to create the perfect engagement ring. I knew my girlfriend wanted a halo ring. So when I met with the jury consultant we started with that and my budget. He showed me ring settings in my price range. I felt no pressure to buy for the center stone. We looked at diamonds first. Then he showed me their beautiful sapphire's an option. I hadn't even considered And what a selection. They had over a dozen colours to choose from. He said that Tom Shane hand selects their sapphires in Bangkok. I ended up choosing a blue sapphire I hadn't planned on that. But once I saw how the diamond halo frame the sapphire, I knew it was perfect for her. She's really one of a kind and well, that's what I love about her, and we're still getting lots of compliments on the ring. Now you have a friend in the jewelry business. Shane Company open weekdays till late Saturday and Sunday Till five and online at Schenck oh dot com. Think how deep this is so you have But three years the country's lied to by the media there told Trump Russia. Collusion, collusion collusion. Turns out the only collusion was Hillary Clinton, paying for a dirty Russian disinformation dossier that the FBI knew very early. Was not true. It was never via fair. Verify a bowl. Uh, in January, 2017, the sub source said. None of it's true. This was bar talk. Christopher Steele even admitted none of it is confirmed. And yet they went forward used the dirty Russian dossier they committed. Premeditated fraud identifies a court they spied on a presidential candidate, a transition team in a president. Nobody has been held accountable for any of that. Now. I'm sorry, Gregg Jarrett. If you're not held accountable for that. How do we say that? We have a a justice system that's functioning at in a way that that dispenses fair justice because I don't believe it exists anymore. Don't believe it, either. It's dysfunctional, and you just nicely described in myriad of crimes associated with crimes that are proven and then a complicit media. That went forward with the conspiracy theories on the lies. The media are just lazy, Dimwit says. I'd call them in my latest podcast, but it's really unconscionable. That the Department of Justice is not taking aggressive action the people behind the Russia hoax that held hostage a presidency for nearly its entire four years. That Donald Trump was in office and, you know, it's not just Hillary Clinton paying for a funny dossier. It's Christopher Steele, who sought to influence in American election through lives that he put in paper and then peddle through the media and peddled to American government officials, including James Comey, Andrew Mackay, Peter Struck and so forth, and all of them. Joined in this conspiracy. They knew that the dossier was a lie. They found the source and the source laughed and said, it's all a collection. Of lies and deceptions and exaggerations. And yet that didn't deter Comey's FBI. From wine to the five support to obtain surveillance warrants and and perpetuating if you or I did this, we'd be in jail right now for life. Totally. We absolutely we would, but you know, because Democrats did it..

"So you describe. The new book is of individual plant species intertwining plant science with human stories history culture and folklore. What research must have gone into this work. I think i probably started my research without realizing. When i was about nine and i i grew up living near the botanic gardens q. And my parents used to take. My brother. May around and joining us. Along with christmas with sweet treats and whatnot but also with stories about the the individual plants. And i think that's probably where my research started. I remember vividly. Actually my my father taking an opium poppy and some slicing the the seed pod and a little drop of latex comey me said gonna have a lick remember so drop of opium latex on my tongue which just made it go ever ever so slightly now for for a moment. I already felt anything i remember. The the sort of the person who's jaw dropped was actually my teacher. When i told her and i think they sent her to social workers he talks my momma odier more more recently and i ended up on the on the board of the gardens q. And and i think. I was there actually. Because of my satanical background education outreach experience not had the bbc and so on and it was while. I was there that i really learned an enormous amount about botany from being surrounded by
Beyond Binaries, Beyond Orthodoxies - Jericho Vincent
"We are really thrilled to be having this conversation. So jericho vincent welcome to judaism unbound. It's so great to have you on the. I'm really excited to talk to you. Because i just finished reading your book cut me. Loose was yesterday or this morning. I just finished it. So i was hoping just that. Because i'm always conscious about like spoiler alert that you could tell a little bit of your story just to get us started here in the way that you you tell it so that people understand you know who you are and where you've come from and where you're going sure. So i published my memoir back in two thousand fourteen skuld comey loose and it tells the story of my upbringing in an ultra orthodox rabbinic family. And what happened. When i started pushing back against some of the rules of that lifestyle Spoiler i can tell you what happened was pretty dreadful things. My family basically pushed me out. I was totally unprepared as an ultra orthodox teenager to live on my own in new york city which is what i ended up doing a lot of trauma. I'm as i try to survive before. Finally starting to pull myself out of that. And trying to rebuild a life the stable safe and that's sort of the ark of the book the ark of life stories much larger than that. Yeah we've had guests on this show. Who have left ultra-orthodox judaism and in that book. We if we were having this conversation some years ago. I think that's the conversation that we would have been having but in the time since you published that book you came out as trans and i'm not sure exactly when that was in the timeline so you can help us understand where we're sitting today and then down the road when i'm really also really interested in. Is this connection or maybe it is. Maybe it isn't a way to understand judaism differently in light of the way that we are now understanding gender differently. So i came out publicly about tune half years ago and i came out as gender queer which is under the umbrella of trans identity and will the thing about writing a memoir is that you discover when you sit down to write. It is that human life is so massive and contain so many narratives. You can only fit very small. Sliver that into a book. And when i actually sat down to write my memoir i didn't know that i was gender queer

"comey" Discussed on The Book Review
"By the time we had all of these cable channels and play. Cynicism became the default position. It was really hard for a journalist especially a beginning journalists to write a positive piece about politician. All politicians were assumed corrupt. Politics itself was the devil's work. I had this aphorism which is that cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre. It's just too easy to be cynical. All the time and donald trump came out of that atmosphere and we have to figure out a way to restore the prior atmosphere where truth was worshipped and komi even though he is an apologetic in this book. He's on the side of the angels because he believes that there can be no replacement for fact based truth. I'm going to restrain myself. I'm having a full side conversation about daniel patrick moynihan i want. I want to go back to robert. Muller explain for listeners. Who might not recall what the relationship was between james. Comey robert muller and i'm curious then how open komi is about his characterization and criticism of me in the book. Well as with almost everybody else. In the justice department komi worshiped muller muller was the gold standard for fbi director during the george w bush and and barack obama administration's and he was absolutely relieved when mower was hired to continue the investigation. That trump wanted to quash which was of the russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election. It was obvious it was agreed upon by the entire. Us intelligence committee and muller went about conducting this investigation for two years and an awful lot of us in the media began to read into things. That weren't there. The central question became what was called collusion between the trump campaign and the russians that probably never existed because the russians were doing exactly what the trump campaign wanted them to do. In any case when it came out muller loud the attorney general william bar to frame the report as absolving donald trump from culpability on the issue of collusion and leaving the door open on the issue of obstruction of just komi wanted a much more clear accounting from muller. He wanted a better. Pr effort from muller. And i think that was impart muller's fault. But i think it was the democrats fault as well because when muller finally went into the congressional hearing the first question from congressman jerry nadler should have been are you saying in this report that the russians actively tried to influence our election and actively tried to hack into our system and buller would have said yes and that should have been the headline the russians were invading us in cyberspace but that never became the headline because in part the democrats were looking for legalisms like obstruction of justice. And so was me. Right about william barloon. What he makes of him and and of justice under him. Because all three of these guys. Robert mueller james komi and and william bar were sort of establishment republicans before this administration will. He doesn't think very highly bar that's for sure. He thinks that bar created a dust storm to prevent the truth from coming out. Have to ask about a couple of chapters in this book because we were talking earlier about comey's character and the fact that he's a fan observing catholic. There is a chapter in here called weird sex and another chapter called show..
"comey" Discussed on The Book Review
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his <hes> byline primary colors <hes>. And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and <hes>. And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

Anne Hathaway reveals we've all been calling her the wrong name
"Princess of genova and overall icon was on the tonight. Show with jimmy fallon last night and she admitted that she doesn't love her name. Comey any everybody everybody homey any. Please let still the teeth. I so armee. When i was fourteen years old. I did a commercial and i had to get my sag card and they ask me. What do you want your name to be. And i'm like well it should be my name's anne hathaway lake. I never into. That seemed the right choice. But it never occurred to me that the rest of my life people will call me and the only person who ever calls me and my mother and she only doesn't when she's really mad at me really mad and so i- every time i step on public in some costly name. I think they're going to yell at me. This is the most anne hathaway thing that's ever had on sorry. I'm sorry this is i. I refuse to believe that this will has so much negative connotation to her name anne hathaway when she's been a working actress and she was a kid. That was the big note from me. You've been called hatheway by the public for thirty plus years now. We know that there's like if someone has their stage name or their name. Everyone calls him that but then they're good friends or family might call them something else. And i think that's special. So how about everyone in her life calls are we to call her. Because we don't know her it's the
New Sudan government acceptable to the people paves way for UNAMID drawdown
"Council on tuesday voted to end the hybrid. Un african union civilian support operation for dr four unit beginning. The draw down on the first january marks the end of a force that can withdraw knowing the government is now in the right hand according to the un joint special representative jeremiah. Mama bolo although he tells news in this exclusive interview it does not mean the un is leaving and you assistance mission. Unit will continue to support peace building efforts with most of the violence killed some three hundred thousand endow four and displaced millions. Now apparently over. Mr lamela began by telling del mckie of. Are you a new arabic team. What unit achieved. Since two thousand seven beyond fulfilling its coal mandate of keeping civilian safe as part of that professional civilians were also responsible for mitigating the conflicts that you have seen so many of in who but also to to mediate the violence conflict the government of some van and i'm groups in that pack. The it's not easy. But i think in terms of all that the ability to create this security and barrowman to do those in emissions achieved or beat in the non time comey as you can see in ten years now that we can now. Finally the peace accord ten years coming. That came out of the mission exiting as a peacekeeping mission which means in a sense of the security being no community address country realized that perhaps is no need this emission now that objective has been achieved and i think back you can put down as part of the success of that we have been able with the problems to navigate very difficult situation and imagine a situation where we now have peace not over completely neutral. But you now have a new government in place that is committed to what's peacedale and ensuring that you can forever get rid of the problems that way contact and phase an app development has so let's turn to the other side of the coin. What have been the major challenges for you need like a major tenant was said before.

EPISODE 35: Election Fraud / Interference - The Facts, The History & The Conspiracy Theory - burst 02
"It got me thinking back to twenty seventeen And it was about one hundred twenty days into president. Trump's presidency and i wrote an article on statecraft was over dot com called plot. Twist the komi in in it. I kind of touched on a scenario. That i thought was intriguing and it was right around the time that memo's were coming about For komi where the left was just so hard up to try and find something anything they can impeach president trump on and They're at that point in time. The democrats were demanding. Memo's be released in an investigation launched and impeachment proceedings to start and so i theorized in that article that you know what if blinded by their absolute rage over losing the election in november and doing whatever it takes to get president trump out of the white house they now have inadvertently exposed information within other memos comey may have made because they wanted to make all of comey's memo's pop public record right at the time it was all about how komi keeps these immaculate notes on everything and anything he does. It was the whole reason why after he was president trump that one day he immediately went out to his car grabbed laptop and started writing out notes from that from that meeting that everybody wanted where he's a take it easy anyway but that opened the door to all of comey's memo's well at the time and of course s things played out. You know we. We got access to some of them but not all of them and you know it really did kind of turn on the democrats what i thought because know i made the point. Could you imagine the look on president trump's face if he were to be exonerated of any wrongdoing which did happen right. He did get impeached but at the same point in time he got acquitted as well because there was no wrongdoing. Even the molar report showed that there was no wrongdoing. And you know those four hundred and forty eight pages are out there. There's very very little redacted to muller's credit into Ag bars credit there was very little redacted in that document. So you can actually go out and see. Just how much of the report was there. And there was no russian collusion which we knew all along well. Those of us who knew president trump knew all along but i wrote in the plot twists. The komi memo's back in two thousand seventeen and linked to it so you guys can go back and take a look at it if you want to. It's a short article to like a minute and a half to read. But anyway you know if i made the point that if he was exonerated of any wrongdoing and then to add insult to injury for the democratic party that You know they actually exposed through those memos and documents wrongdoing done by the democrats in thereby getting hillary clinton locked up right which you know we finding out now. Due to release of memos that were done earlier this year. But that's exactly what happened. That this whole russian collusion story that chased or that was held over a president trump ted for two years and You know hindered. His presidency in the beginning was all made up and fabricated by hillary. So in prepping for this week's podcast. I was thinking about that and so i wanted to kind of lay out since two thousand seventeen when i wrote that my gut knee joking reaction was actually right just took a while for it to pan out took almost four years for it to pan out but i was right. I wanted to talk about the election fraud now. Obviously we don't have four years to have this one pan out and president trump is running out of time and it's looking more and more likely that we will have a biden harris administration As much as it pains me to say.

DOC NYC documentary film festival goes online
"It's time for our documentary of the wake from Tom Powers and Raphael in a house in the co founders of the DOC NYC Festival, which is currently taking place online until next Thursday with over 100 feature length films. Here's Tom, with a pick from the festival somewhere are ready. The greatness of America is the right toe protest far right? Day. Martin Luther King Jr is widely regarded as a hero. But the new documentary MLK. FBI returns us to the time when J. Edgar Hoover treated him as an enemy historian Beverly Gauge, explains the FBI Woz Most alarmed about King because of his success. And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people. King's biographer, David Garrow, wrote a book about the FBI's relentless surveillance campaign. Their agents recorded King's extramarital affairs and tried to smear his reputation. The FBI is frustrated that even though they've successfully caught King In 15 or more hotel rooms, and they've distributed this behind the scenes to church leaders to reporters. Nothing's publicly happened now, as black lives matter. Activists face new government pressure Film makes us wonder how much the FBI has changed. The bureau's former director, James Comey, remains dismayed about Hoover's treatment of King. You know this about humans? What we're best at is convincing ourselves of our own righteousness. I think this entire episode represents the darkest part of the bureau's history. Filmmaker Sam Pollard previously was a director on eyes on the prize and a collaborator with Spike Lee. He's being honored at the document. I see Festival with a lifetime achievement award. MLK. FBI is now streaming on the dock NYC website For more information is a w n y c dot or g'kar flash docks.
McCabe defends Russia probe during partisan hearing
"FBI director Andrew McCabe appeared today before the Senate Judiciary Committee and defended in his opening statement the FBI's decision to investigate whether Russians meddled in the 2016 election. Called it an obligation our duty to do so because of information that had been brought to its attention in response to questioning. McCabe also said this about the FBI's investigation, which ultimately led to the Russia probe. We had many reasons to believe that the president might himself pose a danger to national security, and that he might have engaged in obstruction of justice. If the firing of the director and those other things were geared towards eliminating or stopping our investigation of Russian Active.

How Voice Tech Podcast's Carl Robinson Got Started In Voice
"So Carl. Comey how you got started invoice? What was your first experience? The voice device in? How did he interested in voice technology? So. I found voice few years ago while I was doing my data science master's degree in. Paris France has a two year cost studying machine learning and saw looking around at different fields that interested me decide. I would work in after the after I graduated house okay. And traction studying robotics, the Voice of course, and also different fields that involve the human in someway I call it the interaction element of things I ended up doing an internship. At a laboratory could come on voice emotion transformation as it basically means I was creating machine learning model that would accept recording of human speech and then transform its characteristics so that it would output a new file of the person speaking with the emotion in the voice changed in some way. So it would sound more angry or happier or whatever you would like. This is fantastic. First introduction for me into the world of voice allowed me to me a lot of people who specialised in voice technology and really started a spot, my nation, and this was exactly around the time when you know I'm an Alexa and be smart speakers really taking off as well. So I could see that was a real opportunity in the industry to to work in that field as well, and so this is this is what really got me into voice surfaced of all. I think the first voice interface I us apart from the. Toys R., US a child and we can all think back to the eighty s when there was some kind of voice interfaces But. In recent times I think that the the most the first voice choice I used was on my mobile phone. Many people had an android phone. So I started issuing a few voice set his and commands to it was paying more attention to the space immediately went out and ordered an Amazon Echo. DOT started playing with that set up my smart home a couple of light switches asking questions hooked it up to Jesus, so I could ask her music tracks and things like that and it grew from that. Started using my phone in the car as people do I start buying the Google devices. So how? A range of different ecosystems in the house now but that was my first experience basically. So those experiences on my phone and on the the smart because really convince me of the potential voice in has been a fan of the idea of Ambien computing that the star Trek Vision. Well, you just walk into a room and asked what we want and none of this late word business. You just have thought ask for it and keep and computer response and I see this is a big step towards that vision as not the full it's not the full vision. Of course, there's going to be other modalities introduced, but really sparked my. Imagination and it really made me made me think that this is the technology that has the most potential to advance the quickest in the coming years thinking about my career and what I wanted to work on I was thinking strongly about the by Thornton VR. Still has a long way to go before it really takes off in the mainstream but this voice thing this really looks like it's got a lot of attention on the short term and I think it was right in in that prediction as well because looking the proliferation of smart because. So many searches conducted over voice today. It's definitely it's definitely a trend that's going to stick. The voice tech podcast is a must listen. So listeners go listen to it. You have over seventy episodes right now carl and I enjoyed being a guest in episode sixty one. Please tell listeners more about your podcast. Thanks Roger, I really appreciate that. Yeah, like signed. Before as you mentioned, we've done over seventy episodes. Now I can mention a few that really stick in my mind deals with a personal favor. Actually I the thing I liked to buy our conversations that it was very well-structured. You've really got into the the details of the the bixby system as well. I left that conversation failing some impressed. So in in. The the way that you guys have done over there, but we've had lots of conversations like that on there that was podcast to me. Personally, it's been a wonderful experience for personal branding reasons expanded my network hugely by doing. So I've spoken to lots of people that I would've never had the opportunity to just be to otherwise. So it's been, it's been a wonderful experience,
DNI declassifies Brennan notes, CIA memo on Hillary Clinton
"Of National Intelligence. John Radcliffe. Declassified documents it reveals the former CIA director John Brennan, brief the former president Barack Obama on Hillary's purported plan to tie Candidate Donald Trump to Russia as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server. In other words, CIA picked up intelligence on all of this. Now, Brennan's hand written notes have been declassified, and he even felt it was so important. He briefed Obama on it, and ah anyway that was now sent to the House and Senate intelligence committees. Sources familiar with the documents explain that Brennan's hand written notes were taken after briefing Obama on the matter. In other words, that Hillary set the whole thing up as a means of vilifying Donald Trump to distract from her. Email scandal and that is the subpoenaed emails She deleted and the bleach bit than the hammers. I told you, we should always have gotten on the bottom of that. And that apparently, our intelligence officials were able to pick up intelligence. Other words, probably some eavesdropping or source. Of Hillary approving a plan to actually make up a false narrative about Donald Trump. Being in collusion with Russia to the whole thing was made up. And that referral was sent to Comey and to Peter struggle, all people they knew the whole time They knew the whole time.

And now, the spiel Daniel Cameron the Attorney General of Kentucky is the official who presented evidence to the grand jury considering indictments of the police officers who killed Brianna Taylor. When those indictments did not come except for a Class D felony for one of the officers of for wanting endangerment Daniel Cameron became a very unpopular man with most black or progressive or black and progressive people in America I understand that as a black man. HOW PAINFUL This is. Black and progressive people in Kentucky had largely already arrived at the conclusion that Daniel Cameron wasn't best representing their interests. They weren't discovering him a new. They knew cameron was a men. Of Mitch McConnell. They also knew he spoke at last month's Republican National Convention. Good evening. My name is Daniel Cameron. I'm thirty four years old and the first African American Attorney General in Kentucky History. It is an honor to be with you as a proud Republican, and supporter of Donald J trump Daniel Cameron now is an extremely unpopular figure on the left Doreen Saint Felix a writer for the New Yorker tweeted after his press conference Daniel. Cameron is a bitch to make mallory and activists who led the women's March. Had this to say that is who you are Daniel Cameron you are. You are a seller. And you what used the system to harm own Mama? Mama. We had no respect for you. Know respect your skin because all of our skin folks ain't. Go. To the long black people at all. So the animosity towards Cameron runs deep and in this moment of heightened emotions, people can and are criticizing him for his pedigree is politics, his prosecutorial choices, his wife, his wife. Yes Daniel Cameron was married to a twenty seven year old woman named Mackenzie Evans now Mackenzie Cameron last month and the new Mrs Cameron is a white woman. To which I say probably you do too. So what who cares? That's fine. There couldn't be less that I need to comment on or that you need me to comment on but on twitter on black twitter certainly on in conversations taking place there was condemnation it was fierce and this condemnation went and I've seen this before and you probably you have two black republican white wife things like typical figures always the case. To which I say something like first of all, come on lay lay off, you know people in their spouse is to. Draw too many conclusions or cast too many stones please. But I did wonder. Is it true. Is it actually so typical for a black Republican man to marry white woman I know I know why am I asking I'm just curious and maybe so are you I just want the actual statistics I think an actual quantification is better than people saying always the case and other people believing them or just believing them why don't we have the actual facts? I mean when we think of prominent examples and maybe this is skewing our mental picture maybe we think of Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginny who is white but then again we think Ben, Carson his wife Candy Who's African American So which one which one of these two prominent black men in the federal government who you thought of maybe that says something about your cognitive bias but would it be interesting or useful where this phenomenon to be documented perhaps even just proven So. I attempted this come with me if you will. So as a baseline according to a pew analysis of the American. Community study. In two, thousand, fifteen, seventeen percent of all married couples were Inter married couples, and to those married to someone of a different race seven percent. We're black men married to white women. There's another word for this EXOTICA me. Oh God let's let's not say that. None of the technical talk is made me feel a little less weird about the area of study but the facts demanded I. Hope you take in Korean finding without too much judgement. So the most notable though predictable aspect of analyzing the marriage patterns of black Republican men is that there are so few black Republican men. I wanted to include politicians because this is who the charge is lobbed at black Republican male politicians often Mary white wives. So the thought goes found a list of black Republican elected officials. I'm not talking about just maybe famous people who Be Black and call themselves Republican in other words Charles Barkley is not making my study. So I, I looked up congress their zero married Black Republicans. In the Senate, they're zero married Black Republicans in the house fact Tim Scott will heard that's all of the people I'm talking about they have no wives. So then I look towards the state's Wikipedia, has a list of African American Republicans, which I acknowledge might not be the definitive list of all African American. Republicans there are seven, thousand, three, hundred, eighty, three state legislators. Of them, I could find six black Republican men. We have Arizona Rep Walter Blackman, yeah I. Know He is married to a white woman. We have Peter Boulware who is a former NFL player is great player. He's in the Florida State House he's married to a black woman his fellow black Republican in the Florida legislature Mike Hill has a white wife Texas's Jamesy whites. Wife is a white woman Alaska. Senator. David Wilson's wife Alita is by parents white. Oh I should also say this could be wrong about some of these people I'm just going by pictures that I could find on the Internet on official photos. In some cases on facebook. There's also Vermont Rep Randy, Brock, who says it's still in office, but his official page on the State House site lists only two thousand eighteen but you know he is a mainstay of Vermont politics. He was the GOP nominee for governor eight years ago Lieutenant Governor for years ago. He a black man has a white wife. The couple reportedly met at a polygraph convention that's the truth. Of the other officials elected to statewide office in any capacity within the last decade, there are another five black Republican men. Texas is Michael Williams and current Lieutenant Governor of Maryland Boyd Rutherford have black lives or not white wives. Again, going by looks cameron who we talked about recent Indiana Auditor dwayne Sawyer and current Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill..
"comey" Discussed on Slate's The Gist
"What Jim Komi was thinking and and I didn't know anything. Except what I could pull off a social media, which apparently is where we go now but there's more there and this film shows that in at least it puts you in Jim call shoes a little bit. You get to help decide what you would have done. If now that you know everything he was facing and billy script and Jim Story, it puts him. Between a rock and a hard place time and time and time again, I, learned a lot playing it. I know that billy same question to you did you form an opinion of Komi during the election or maybe when the book that will his book that you optioned into this project maybe read that book early on and maybe your impression change but just tell me before you put pen to script. What were your thoughts on Komi the person? Well during twenty six, thousand, nine hated him. I like many Americans believed that he had tipped the election to DONALD TRUMP IT turns out. I was mistaken the deciding factor in that election by far. Was Russians and I've gotten inside the Intel community all the way up to James Clapper himself who confirmed it but that said like most people I was on the outside looking in watching. CNN like just about everybody else and assuming that James Comey had thrown the election missed. Know inadvertently to Donald Trump. So either very strong feelings about that. And then when I was offered the chance to adapt his book and got to know the circumstances better and got to understand that we had an opportunity to say to America and were broadly the world. Okay. Be Jim call me for five minutes. Here are the factors here on facts here the constraints here are the pressures. Here's the political reality. What would you have done? I thought that was an incredible opportunity. For us as storytellers and then you mix in there. Okay. Here's who Jim Komi years here. The things he values here are the things that he believes your thinks he knows to be true and you're the things that he's guessing. At, all of that impacts the way he makes decisions here the people around him here's his family all the sudden. It becomes the ingredients for this very compelling harrowing, Powerful and oddly hopeful story and that's That's what you are shooting for. Then you add in the element of a brilliant cast led by Jeff Daniels who can articulate that and actually make it real and then you get everything, which is what I'm so proud of the work we did. You Know Jeff I've always been fascinated with two aspects of acting one is just the opportunity to memorize these great words in like if I could walk around being able to spout Shakespeare at considerate a superpower. But the other is the ability an opportunity to understand psychology to really crawl inside someone's skin and figure out how they see the world is that a big driver for you? It's adult make believe when you break down, we get to inhabit. Take it on a deeper level. You get to inhabit someone like Jim Jim. Coleman and how do you do that it? It you my little key thought is you get what he's thinking. You get what he believes on. You add in what his politics are. His sense of humor is what he likes what he doesn't like his strengths weaknesses every single character you approach like that so that you can. kind of become him, and that's that's the fun that's Akito in young actors. That's where the fun is. It is an looking pretty for a close up the fund is getting to the end of a take and this happened a lot on call May and not remembering what you did. and. That's that's because you were so in the moment and so writing him like like a like a wave then they said cut and you go what happened billy he goes. Yeah we got it good good whatever you got. That's the that's where the fun is. So when you are tell me about your interaction with Komi. Did you actually or was this literally literally optioned from his memoir therefore, he was paid and did you have any say in how this was portrayed onscreen only to the extent that she had writer approval in other words if if he didn't want me to be the one adapting it I wouldn't have gotten this job. But that said he and I had long talks. He knew exactly how I felt about him and he knew exactly how I felt about some of the decisions he had made and he he picked me anyway and then made himself a resource to me so that if I had questions, you know he would give him the answers to his credit. He never manipulated me never tried to spend me. He never tried to convince me that he was the saint. It just answered my questions. Okay. So what about Casting Jeff Daniels and I would have done it too. But here's the thing when you do that you're evoking everyone's he's played. He's played George. Washington. Right and he's played the hero of Gettysburg and he's he just is filled with all like Jimmy. Stewart. WHO's mentioned Tom Hanks or Gregory Peck right? He's filled with all these characters that represent things like rectitude in judgment and decency and humanity. So when you do that, are you signing up for those traits you know really shining through so than you would if there was another actor who existed in more of a gray area in the audience's mind. There were a couple boxes that we had to check when we considered a who was the right person play Army I had to be a spectacular actor. So, that one's covered second they have to walk into this bringing an enormous amount of credibility because Komi is such a polarizing figure I wanted someone that people like and trust because I felt I didn't have to overcome anything that the actor might might brin as baggage third they had certain level of physicality you can't hire someone who's five ten to play six eight can't do that and then fourth perhaps as important as the other three I needed an actor with tremendous confidence in their own ability because it is not the bells and whistles. Part of our show, trump is trump gets all the really crazy theatrical stuff to say, and so I needed are call me to have the confidence to trust that is own stillness and is on quiet would be as powerful as trump's huge speeches So Jeff delivers all four of those things. He was always our first choice and we were very very lucky to get him right creating a quiet or subtle gravity around him. Jeff what do you think of that? A lot of compliments there but do you have anything to say about that assessment? Very kind I from day one and bill and I talked about this and I it I said we need great actors around me and yeah, there are the lot of Hollywood movies for the stars going getting mediocre people.
"comey" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"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.
"comey" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"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..

"Yeah it's taking on the other side of the country i believe yeah may tenth also trump had to russian visitors to his office and he told them hey i fired the fbi director so yes quite interesting to break that news to people on the day you did it i guess it was already in the news as it was occurring by but again the the thing is it's so easy if you already have a preexisting bias to say boom there's our smoking gun that any president is gonna have a really busy schedule and those people may have already been like locked in visit for whatever twenty six minutes or something yeah origo or were they coming to visit and he knew it and he was like a better fire this guy before they show up well that's you know that's interesting because when all three of us were separately looking at timelines it's incredibly clear that there was so much tension beforehand as director comey was avoiding the president which seems weird like avoiding moments alone with your boss you know because there was the question of loyalty that appeared to come up yes impropriety when i only came up i it's it's the title of combs book i mean that's like the whole his whole thing is a higher loyalty because he claims in this meeting that he had with with president trump that was meant to be in his mind business meeting involving multiple parties made ended up just being showed up and it was just the and trump he's like what gives and supposedly president trump.
