Nadler says 'No question: we're in investigation to determine articles of impeachment'
"Begin tonight with the breaking news. The trump justice department headed by the Trump Attorney General William Barr told a federal court in Washington tonight that the House Judiciary Committee should be denied any access to grand jury material from the mall investigation because because impeachment is not a judicial proceeding according to the Justice Department the Justice Department filing in court notes that grand jury material can be released in connection with a judicial proceeding the Justice Department then insists quote impeachment proceedings in Congress including hypothetical removal precedings in the Senate are not judicial proceedings under the plane and ordinary meaning of that term judicial proceedings are legal proceedings precedings governed by law the take place in judicial forum before a judge or magistrate proceedings that occur outside the judicial setting are not judicial. Sean proceedings even if they are called a trial and include some of the procedures familiar from a courtroom such as sworn testimony or lawyer lead Ed questioning of witnesses the committee for its part offers no explanation for how rule sixties reference to judicial proceedings authorizes access access to grand jury materials for congressional proceedings administered by members of Congress rather than legal proceedings overseen by judges yesterday yesterday the House Judiciary Committee on a party line vote voted for a resolution for investigative procedures offered by Chairman Jerrold Nadler that resolution solution describes in detail the invested procedures that committee will use in what it calls the committee's investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment with respect to President Donald J trump leading off our discussion tonight the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler. He Represents New York's tenth congressional it Distracts Chairman Nadler the Justice Department seems to be making two cases here first of all that this is not a judicial proceeding in your committee Eddie therefore you don't have a right to this second even if it was a judicial proceeding interpreted that way you still don't don't have a right to it even if it went to trial even if it went to a Senate trial you don't have a right to any of this material of their their first of all saying that you aren't even having an impeachment investigation there isn't they insist. There is no impeachment investigation in the house. Well let me deal with that. Universal order we have been very clear for the last several months in in court filings in public statements and in proceedings in the committee that that we are in fact conduct an investigation preparing to decide whether to recommend articles of impeachment to now's now you can call that an impeachment investigation you call that impeaching inquiry. Those terms have legal meaning but that's exactly what we're doing. We're involved in investigation to determine whether to to recommend mend articles impeach into the House and we will determine that at the conclusion of this investigation and and now now I know the Republicans and here just department is simply acting as an arm of the Republican Party. They have argued that this cannot be real impeachment investigation because the house it didn't vote and authority to the community to do it most impeachments done since the reorganization act of Nineteen forty-six have begun in the beginning begun in the in the Judiciary Committee have not had house authorizations a at all the Nixon impeachment had a house weatherization six months after the investigation starting judiciary committee and that was done as was the Clinton House weatherization in order to give the committee the right to do certain kinds of subpoenas and depositions positions house rules have changed. We have that authority without a specific resolution the house so there's no question that we're doing that. We are in an official official. We're doing an investigation toward determining whether to recommend articles impeach the president. The second argument they make is that that doesn't qualify S. judicial proceeding and therefore we're not entitled to Grand Jury Information. I simply say this is another instance of the trump administration trying to cover up and hide from Congress and from the American people in this case from Congress because the American people wouldn't see the grand jury information all kinds of mission. They're they're they're opposing hosing the president said he would oppose he would defy all subpoenas which they have done that by the way was article three of the Nixon impeachment defying subpoenas the law says that a a upon request by the chairman of the ways and Means Committee the Department the IRS shall give tax returns for any individual they have declined to do so they've refused to do so they've said that they haven't shown inadequate purpose none of their business and so just to fight defying all the law and order to hide everything from Congress American people now. They're excuse here that this is not a judicial proceeding. There is judicial precedent for quality for for considering impeachment proceeding either judicial proceeding or preparatory judicial proceeding but I let the details of that go to the legal legal to the reply brief that will be filed this coming

"New York, congressman Jerry Nadler, said in a statement today regarding the special counsel, Robert Muller's comments the special count, I'm quoting here. The special counsel has clearly demonstrated that President Trump is lying about the special counsel's findings lying about the testimony of key witnesses in the special counsel, report and lying in saying that the special counsel found no obstruction and no collusion continuing to quote. Now, they're says it falls to congress to respond to the crimes lies and other wrongdoing. President Trump and we will do so no one not even the. President of the United States is above the law special counsel, Robert Muller found that there was a concerted attack by the Russians on the two thousand sixteen US elections, New York Senator Chuck Schumer responded to that part of what Muller set clear, Isabel whatever side, you're on politically that Russia interfered, it's also clear as a bell if we sit here and do nothing it's going to be worse in two thousand twenty faith in democracy will erode. And that's very bad for America Schumer called on Republicans and the president to support a democratic effort to allocate more money to localities to fight election tampering. Meanwhile, Republican Long Island congressman Peter King feels Muller's findings today, support the president reaffirms that there was no finding of any any collusion at all. And this was after two year thirty million dollar investigation, which really shouldn't even started in the beginning. There was no collusion as far as obstruction. The fact is it wasn't Muller's job to clear. The president was to find out whether or not any crime. He did not conclude any crimes committed Wes.

"We don't wanna be so right now, it's all about oversight. Throw a lot of it is about oversight and trying to hold the administration the president accountable. So to that end congressman Jerry Nadler was saying that if we cannot. Get request met, for instance, with attorney general William Bob that really does affect the way the American democracy is able to remain healthy and transparent for the people. But he also injected a bit of a fear for the future. I'm just going to play this little bit of what he said last week. This is a grave danger from Eric in democracy. And we must do all we can in the name of the American people to ensure. That when the Trump administration ends we have as robust a democracy to hand to our children, which was handed to us. So I it's very interesting the way he puts it and to both of you. And I'll ask you for Susan. He also said in a different part of that address to the press that you know, what's going on is a little bit the difference between democracy and dictatorship democracy. Requires the consistent checks and balances of the institutions and transparency and accountability. What what do you make Susan of what he said? And the way he threw the gauntlet down there. I mean is that is that over egging it, or is it that dramatic do you think? Well, he has used fairly apocalyptic language. The other day an antigen that nothing less than the future of democracy is at stake in whether or not attorney general bar complies with this subpoena for the unredacted Mullah report and the underlying evidence, you know, it's an interesting debate. You said earlier in the program is this the constitutional crisis. What's amazing about the Trump presidency is at almost every? Single day since he was inaugurated people have been asking themselves one way or the other is is it is this the crisis. Is this the moment and to me that's number one that actually President Trump himself is the crisis, right, and it takes many different forms number to the issue of the role of congress and the role of the courts is really come into focus in a way that it hasn't in any other presidency of my adult lifetime, certainly is it a crisis for congress to move forward with investigating the president or for the courts to enact decisions against the executive branch. Arguably not arguably that's exactly how our system of government is supposed to work. Right. Those checks and balances that you referred to on the other hand for Trump to pursue again. And again, a strategy of confrontation with other branches of government in hopes of testing their limit and their boundaries. I think that's what chairman Jerry Nadler is referencing here that have cars doesn't act. That's when you might. Have a crisis..
"congressman jerry" Discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)
"Yeah. And that makes the role of the house even more important because when you have high ranking officials in this administration jockeying to do the president's bidding. So that they protect him as opposed to protect the rule of law, then the burden falls particularly heavily on the house, and especially on the judiciary committee to be the vehicle that says, wait a minute. This is not partisan. This goes to the core of. Whether we are a nation of laws or a nation of men and strongmen at that. So I I'm very very concerned about this argument that we heard today, and it was it was incredibly arrogant the level of disregard, even contempt of the Congress's role was unmistakable, but beyond that, I mean, you get frustrated with the congress when you're in the executive branch, we have a long history of that. But the positions being taken an advocated by bar were unlike anything that I've ever heard of that we're ever accepted with any level of seriousness before. Going to take a quick break. You just mentioned that this puts the burden incredibly heavily on the house. I wanna talk to you about exactly what you mean by that. When we come back. We'll right back with secretary Clinton right after this. We're back with secretary of state twenty sixteen presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton secretary Clinton. Thank you. You were talking just before the break about the weight that falls, particularly on the house, and on the House Judiciary committee right now, of course, with a chairman is New York, congressman, Jerry Nadler. In terms of holding substantive hearings following up on Muller's findings filling in the gaps informing the public about what happened here, obviously, the judiciary committee is also we're impeachment proceedings start, and that's what that court of kind of an inquiry would be expected to lead if they found serious serious wrongdoing. You've course watched in real time how the impeachment of your husband in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight ended up benefiting him politically it was impeached in the house. The Senate did not remove him as somebody who has a realistic view about partisan politics. Do you worry that if Democrats start those hearings and hold them substantively and follow the facts where they lead, and it really looks like they lead to an excellent case for impeachment, and they pursue that they'll get walloped in it will solidify Trump's hold on the White House and Republican hold in congress. I don't worry if it's done, right? And by that I mean, and as I argued in that up, Ed you have to continue with your other agenda. And that's exactly what the house is doing Nancy Pelosi understands that completely keep passing legislation. It may die in the Senate may never be considered. But you will be able to make the argument that you are moving toward election reform. You are going to take on healthcare. You're going to work to deliver. What you? Promised in the two thousand eighteen midterms. So that has to continue at the same time, though, you've got to educate the American public because the whole point behind bars for page summary was to off the skate was to try to create in the minds of Americans that hey, nothing here don't bother removing on. And we know that's not the case now, and obviously Bob Muller has in his own way spoken out for the first time about that. So there do need to be hearings. And the judiciary committee is not the only one that is investigating this administration, and they don't have to be impeachment hearings. That's not where they are. You have to see what it is you. Discover what is the additional information. How do you fill in the gaps? What is in those redacted provisions that are perhaps very significant what other investigations are going on. There's a lot of important material to be explored. So you have to do it in a way that. Creates a narrative. What is it? You're finding out where does it lead? But if it leads to the conclusion that this president has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. That's what should motivate the congress to act..

Analysis Of William Barr's Letter About The Mueller Report
"I'm going to read some more of the key parts of attorney general William BAAs letter summarising the most important points of the Mola report. And then we will get to your calls. So this is William Barr yesterday. The special counsel report is divided into two parts. The first describes the results of the special counsel's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US presidential election. The report outlines the Russian effort to influence the election and documents crimes committed by persons associated with the Russian government in connection with those efforts. The report further explains. The primary consideration for the special counsel's investigation was whether any Americans, including individuals associated with the Trump campaign joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime. The special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its attempts to influence, the twenty sixteen US presidential election, the second element involved, the Russian government's efforts to conduct computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the election, the special counsel found that Russian government actors successfully hacked into the computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign. It's not hard to do that. When your password is password. That's me. Okay. Not hard to hack somebody John Podesta when your password is password back to the report, and the democrat party organizations and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries including WikiLeaks based on those activities. The special counsel brought criminal charges against a number of Russian military officers for conspiring to hack into computers in the United States for purposes of influencing the election. But as noted above the special counsel did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts despite multiple offers from Russian affiliated individuals to assist. The Trump campaign. Now, how is the media and how the Democrats responding to what I just read to you. That's what actually happened. That's what was reported by the attorney general. Let's listen to none other the chairman of the house intelligence committee, Adam Schiff talking to form a Clinton appointee Stephanopoulos Cup five he told the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday, if there's no bombshell. There's no impeachment. There's no new indictments qualify as no bombshell, not necessarily because again, Georgia as you pointed out, they can't indict the president of that's their policy, and therefore there could be overwhelming evidence on the obstruction issue. And I don't know that that's the case. But if there were overwhelming evidence of criminality on the president's part, then the congress would need to consider that remedy. If indictment is for clothes. So it's really. Too early to make those judgments we to discuss what does this mean for the American people? What risks are we running with this president what steps is congress need to take to protect the country? Adam Schiff, you are Eliah. The letter is explicit. And the fact that you've read it and make that statement on national television proves you ally with this question with regards to not exoneration on Xtra -struction of Justice of go back to the lesser here is what it says attorney general William bar again in cataloguing, the president's actions, many of which took place in public view, the report identifies no actions that in our judgment constitute obstructive conduct had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding and would done with corrupt intent each of which under the department's principles of federal prosecution guiding charging decisions would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to establish an obstruction of Justice offense again identifies. No actions. Adam Schiff is like let's listen to congressman Jerry Nadler cut seven except that no member of the Trump team engaged in that kind of criminal conspiracy with Russia. Well, I don't know. First of all, we don't know what what indictments forthcoming from other investigations that have been spun out by the special prosecutor to the southern district of New York with eastern district of Virginia. But his main mission was about Russia. You think he he Muller would would send that to other parts of the Justice department? Don't know that's one of the things we will have to see when we read the report. But we know there was collusion. A why? There's been no indictments. We don't know another liar. Another liar. Who's lying on your dime? Jerry Nadler, saying there was collusion when Robert Muller's report of the five hundred search warrants were issued found no collusion with regards to the demands of the Democrats are making right now for the full report to be disclosed that is a crime the last part of attorney general BAAs letter. I am mindful of the public interest in this matter for that reason my goal and intent is to release as much of the special counsel's report as I can consistent with applicable regulations and departmental policies. Federal rule of criminal procedure six e remember this number six. E. Imposes restrictions on the use and disclosure of information relating to matters occurring before a grand jury rule. Six states disclosure of six immaterial beyond the strict limits set forth in this rule is a crime. Are you listening? Nancy, are you listening? Chuck, it is a crime, even if you leak it to one of your body's you are committing a crime. This restriction back to the letter protects the integrity of grand jury proceedings and ensures that the unique and invaluable investigative powers of the grand jury are used strictly for their intended criminal Justice function. So that which can be released will be released when the attorney general is prepared to do. So I'm a little bit torn about this last audio by. It's Al Sharpton, and I will not call. You Reverend Kaz you're not. But he kind of made me fall off my chair on MSNBC because you are the one lone voice of a parent sanity on the left. Let's listen to the quote, unquote, Reverend Sharpton cut, but the Democrats also now have to move on and really deal with hot issues. I think the politics is that we're now going to have to start talking about tax reform and and climate change and other things because the mullahs situation think has ended up a victory for the president. The Democrats have to move
Nadler: Mueller Report Is "Limited To Crimes," Congress Has Responsibility To Look At "Broader Picture"
"We do know the special counsel is not planning to issue any more indictments. According to a senior Justice department official the conclusion of the report which has cast a shadow over the first two years of the Trump administration is already shaping new political battles the president's allies are signaling he is vindicated as Democrats demand full transparency and vowed a press four with their ongoing investigations into the president. His administration and his businesses. Let's get straight to the man at the center of cherry chairman in the house, congressman, Jerry Nadler of New York. Thank you so much for joining me this morning surfers on our reporting that there will be no further indictments in the Muller probe. That means the end no member of the Trump campaign was charged with conspiring with the Russian government to influence the election Duke sept- that no member of the Trump team engaged in that kind of criminal conspiracy with Russia will I don't know first of all we don't know what indictments forthcoming from other investigations that have been spun out by the special prosecutor to the southern district of New York with these district Virginia. But his main mission was about Russian you think you think he he Muller would would send that to other parts of the Justice department. Don't know that's one of the things we will have to see when we read the report. And that's one of the reasons that I think it's. So crucial that the entire report and the evidence underlying it be released to the public transparency is key here. I mean, obviously, we know we know there was some collusion. I mean, we know that the president's son in campaign manager involved in a meeting with the Russians. To receive a stolen. They thought was to receive a stolen. Information's information is stolen by the Russians from the Democratic National Committee as part of the Russian government attempt to help Trump in the election. That's the way the Email invited into the meeting put it none of what you just said has risen to the level of criminal indictment special counsel. No it hasn't. As far as we know. But we know there was collusion. Why? There's been no indictments. We don't know. Let me say further, we know a number of things we know what I just said we know that the president. Pressure pressured, the FBI to go easy to stop investigating Flynn and various other people. We know that he fired the FBI director. To as he put it to the NBC to take care of the Russian thing in order to stop the investigation of various people associated with him. We know that he concocted the lie about the purpose of that Russian meeting. We know that. He. A lot a lot of his top associates have been indicted and convicted, and we know that he has relate engaged in a relentless attack against the FBI, very slow. So on that note. Mr Chairman what you're describing is evidence to back up. What you said before that you believe the president has obstructed Justice. You still believe that? Well, there have been obstruction of Justice. Whether they're clearly whether they're criminal obstructions another question, but we have. Special. Prosecutor is limited in scope. His job was limited in scope and limited to crimes with congress has to do is look at a broader picture, we are in chart. We we have the responsibility of vindicate of protecting the rule of law of looking instructions of Justice at looking at abuses of power and corruption in order to protect the rule of law. So that our democratic institutions are not greatly damaged by this president. I'm not married into do. Right. And on that very note if Robert Muller comes out in his report, and suggests very strongly states flat out that he agrees with you that the president of struck dead Justice or that the president may have committed some crime that guidelines don't allow to be indicted will you begin impeachment proceedings? It's way too early to speculate about that. Remember, the it is true that the Justice department thinks that they can indict the sitting president no matter what the evidence as a matter of law. And that's what makes it even more important that all the evidence be given to congress and the American people because while the normal rule is and it's a good rule that if you're not indicting someone because you don't have enough evidence. A you don't then smear their name by by saying they did these terrible things if you're not in ninety someone because you can't as a matter of law, then you can't hold the president accountable. The only other institution they can't as congress, and you should not then hide the evidence because that converted into a cover up, right? Congress needs that evidence and the American people need that evidence that information to make judgments, well, let me ask you about that. Because I am glad that you brought that out the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein has made clear that he wants to quote, prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnished people who are not charged with crimes, but. We just heard when you saying that people should see the entire report the evidence underlying it Democrats were pretty upset in two thousand sixteen when then FBI director tapes, call me publicly accused Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing, but then said, well, she shouldn't be indicted. So why shouldn't allegations that don't reach an indictment threshold and talking about the president. But everybody else, stay confidential. Well, because we need to know what was going on here. And it's not just a question of of indictments. It's a question of of protecting the rule of law and of obstruction of Justice and abuses of power and protecting our government and our whole system and it's been subjected to unprecedented attack. Our law enforcement agencies have been subjected to unprecedented smear campaign by the president against the FBI the special prosecutor other one forcement agencies. We have to know the facts so that we can so that we can protect our to know the facts, but do you want to know? Well, the American public has not worried about judgments the underlying notion of the protocol of not getting putting out evidence and people that aren't indicted is to protect reputations and so forth that was the concerned again about Hillary Clinton. This is the same should be applied for Trump officials. Well, we're not talking about indictments. We're talking about what about the American people finding out what went on, and what has gone on a very different question. We have to know. And I want to ask you about Robert Muller's report overall, and the whole notion that you and other Democrats, including the house speaker, I've talked about with transparency if the Justice department is not going to hand it over to you fully and say that it can be fully. Put out to the American public. Are you? Absolutely sure that you will issue a subpoena. Well, we'll try to negotiate and we'll try everything else first. But if we have to yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information, and you're going to be willing to take that all the way up to the supreme court if you have to absolutely. And by the way, the already hearing that the president may wanna claim executive privilege in some of this. And the fact is he has no right to claim executive privilege any evidence of wrongdoing executive privilege cannot shield evidence of wrongdoing, and that was made very clear by the nine nothing decision of the supreme court in the Nixon case where the order the tapes reveal even though those tapes were personal conversations with the president and some of his advisers executive privilege cannot be used to shield wrongdoing. How long are you going to give the Justice department to turn it over? I can't give you a specific answer that days weeks months. Can you give a general? It will be months. Okay. So you're likely to see the main conclusions of the mullahs report as soon as today will you accept them at at face value. Well, we're likely to see what bar characterizes as the main conclusions of the report and will accept them but subject to see all the underlying. We have to make judgments the American people have to make judgments as to how founded those conclusions are or bars summary of the conclusions are, and that's one reason we have to see the entire report and the evidence under an underlying it are you suggesting that bar might mislead about what? No, no, I have no reason to say that. But I am suggesting that people make judgements and those judgments could be right or wrong. Making a judgment is to. Characterizing observation. And and what about when you get to the point where you actually do see the whole report from from Robert Mueller will you trust those results. Do you have full, faith and confidence? I have a great deal of confidence in the people who worked with them. I think they've done. Very good people. So my expectation is that yes, I would address that. But like any other product of human hands, we have to look at the underlying. Evidence and make our own judgments as to as to their judgments. So on that note, let's say he doesn't find that the president obstructed Justice. We you stop your investigation in the house on well, he can't he cannot find that the president did or did not obstruct Justice because his mandate is to look for crimes and the policy. The Justice department is that you cannot look for any criminal acts by the president cannot make that judgment. He can give evidence one way or the. Yeah. Exactly because you don't get you can't reach that conclusion. And the other point is our mandate as congress and the committee for that matter is much broader special prosecutor's looking only at crimes we have to look at protecting the rule of law at obstruction of Justice at abuse of power and a much greater level than simply crimes.

A second of all I think the momentum from the from the the outrage that he delivered there on Capitol Hill that day. I think will I think that is that needs to be carried through but not just through the election, not just through the midterm election. It needs to be carried through in that attitude needs to be carried through on important things that that that matter beyond that including legislative items and other and and who knows what kind of other nomination process. We may go through while Trump is still president. But, you know, making some very solid points. The left was going to you know, they used him when it's convenient. That's what they do. They point to the right Lindsey Graham. And since Trump has been president anything that doesn't go along with you know, any comment that that counters the president the left wanted to use that and. And and and really kind of a position Lindsey Graham to be the bipartisan willing to cross the aisle Republican that John McCain was and in some ways, he was, but of course, you're demonized now you're Hitler because you stand for something on its merits, you stand for something based on the behavior of the left, and you're outraged and rightly so, well, you know, thing is an reading Frank Bruni column in the New York Times that none of it relates to the actual case what he was talking about their merits. It's it's about the fact that Lindsey Graham has had differences with Donald Trump. Right. And you know, and Trump is, you know, been at Trump has been mean to him and called them names and things like that. And there's been an animosity between the two and therefore somehow Lindsey Graham shouldn't be taking Trump side with Trump's candidate. He doesn't get what we said earlier. This whole cavenaugh thing wasn't about Trump. It really wasn't a Bernie doesn't get that. And I don't know I'd have to go back on and count the number of comments made for or against Trump from Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham when he issued his concern that day. A week ago last Thursday. It was based on the lack of merits of the case, and the and and on the larger much to a larger extent pretty much the treatment of Kavanagh by the Democrats, and and not the not the liberals with the signs outside. Look the Democrats on the committee. Frank Bruni has nothing read the article, he's got nothing. Well, he's he's. Yeah. They're they're they're wrong. As I've said, we discuss this for the last two and a half weeks. We didn't have anyone. I am not seen any rational thought. Or critical thinking statement come from the mainstream media or the Democrats to say that the position that I hold and you hold which would be similar in this particular case to Lindsey Graham. Yeah, where is flawed at all. Except for rhetoric and bringing up other things that have nothing to do with this case with this nomination process with the witnesses and the allegations at came forward every single point that we have made. Which is the same when I can see as Lindsey Graham are all legit and oldest is going to drive them nuts. Moral and correct and rice and you're wrong and reading Frank Bernie's column in the New York Times, you're a simpleton Mr. Bruni. Talk about the actual things that Lindsey Graham brought up go point by point and say any of the things that he said were wrong. You can't do that. Because then you'd be lying. Yep. Yeah. I mean, it is again, the they just lack the will to have the debate the debate the debate step up what Lindsey Graham said on that day. So they do what? Well, he used to be for Trump. Now, he's against Trump. That's basically, the gist of it, right? Well from their world absolute loyalty is expected as we've said in the real world. It's I like this candidate for this don't like him for this all the right over there. That's a good nominee. That's that's a good nomination pick over there. I like that. I don't like this real people in critical thinking people and people with rational thought, Mr. Bruni can do that. I can say that. There are plenty of times. I disagreed with Lindsey Graham, and I might in the future. Yeah. You're running for attorney general, right? Journey general. What are you trying to get out? Exactly. Exactly. Well, that's it. He's only doing this be well again, that's because you can't debate the points that he made the only point you have as he was against Trump. And now, he's four Trump. We have we've said with these simpleton, you know, arguments that will never and I call them simpleton arguments because they never directly go after the the particulars of an issue that we are discussing. They always try to bring up side issues that aren't aren't even pertinent to what you're discussing right. And you read Bernie's Kalemie like what about the allegations are made that they're not wrong. You're just saying he's kissing Trump's. But to become Ernie general. Yeah, you have no evidence of that. You're not contradicting the points that he made your simply saying he's making it, and he shouldn't be making it because he was one of the most fierce anti-trumpers and now he's agreeing with him. And if you disagree with Trump, you must always disagree with Trump, which of course, is hogwash. Yeah. It is the insanity of the left and and again, they. It's funny because they used to pretend to be the side that had the greater intellect. That's still trying to tell you that. They are. No, they don't. But it is the they keep going for the low hanging fruit. And and the and and really the brunt of the argument right now is well, he's just trying to get something out of Trump or he used to hate Trump. And now he likes Trump. Debate him on the points made on that day. Mr. Bruni can't can't do it. Eight six six ninety redeye. Get in touch.
