"Jack Mas and group It's expected to raise about $34.5 billion through an I P s right in Shanghai and Hong Kong on here's a little perspective for you. That's about the same valuations. JPMorgan Chase four times larger than Goldman Sachs. How about that? Let's get more on this company and why it's cornering so much attention, and it's rolling the global financial landscape. Bloomberg News deals reporter Crystal seas with us. She's on the phone in New York City. Crystal good to have you here with us. I mean, this is a blockbuster. Yeah, it's the biggest Theo As we expected. You know, a Ramco last year to be the big hero turned out to be a 29 billion dio. And in here we come 35 billion, so this really would be the biggest deal. It would be a monster deal. Why do people want to invest in it? Where's the appetite coming from? This's a story of a very much for player in the fintech space and all these impact player. It is a competition like that in this papal pasta then, but a plus the J. P. Morgan Really. It has a lot of influence in China because somehow take over the shares. Market shares. Traditional banks Path popular in China. And Ollie paid, which is the product that and operate with. It's probably the biggest player in China, so I mean that it's on Alone just share volume that they process gives them the valuation and this race that they could justify So Krystal is it a company that will continue to dominate in China and in Asia specifically or did something a company that we're going to see spread throughout the globe? Ultimately, Interestingly, 40% of the use of proceeds is actually going to be used for overseas payment extension on DH, although that's sounds like they're expanding out of China. Very much focused on Chinese customers. What it really means is that they will try to extend into merchant In in in places where Chinese tourists like to visit like, You know, when you go, too, I guess like the husband yard. When you go to Paris with me, you will feed a luxury stores with on Ali pay Q R code so That is that is what they want. That's what their expansion is focusing on. But it's very much so a China Pacific play and not even within Asia is very much a China. People play well on Krystal. It's also a Chinese listing. I feel like it's not lost on any of the US any of us that this wasn't a US listing. They're not on the nicely. They're not in the NASDAQ. They II Po'ed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. I'm assuming in large part because of the scrutiny Chinese listed firms are under here in the U. S. But How significant is it that this thing did not price in New York City? He has the biggest. Whoever is not a U. S listing is also is the Chinese company that is listening in China and Hong Kong that the concurrent listening It's interesting. This has not been done before. Some companies have tried Teo a simultaneous thing. And will be the first to pull it off. But more importantly, Andi Ali pay and we have. Hey, we're under White House scrutiny just last month. White House is trying to ban both products and the US So I think that just that also explains why us It's not a friendly environment for this idea. Yeah, are we expected to see in a tiara at any point? It could happen, but with 35 billion. I don't think that is the immediate next after them.

The Case Against Google

Weekend Edition Saturday

The Case Against Google

"We're going to zoom in now on a detail in the lawsuit the Justice Department filed against Google this week. It alleges that Google paid Apple As much as $12 billion to be the default search engine for iPhones. Prosecutors say this proves that Google abused monopoly power to try to keep rivals down. We should mention Apple and Google are both financial supporters of NPR. NPR's Bobby Allen covers tech and joins us now, Bobby. Thanks so much for being with us, you gotta Scott. And what does the government contend the that this payment is evidence Google abuse power. To the heart of the government's case against Google is that it's grown so large it functions like a monopoly like an oil baron, or like a steel magnet. But instead of being an industrialist's, it has huge power over the Internet, which on its face is not illegal, but When a company gains this much power and throws its weight around to make sure nobody else can compete. That's when there are real legal questions, and the Justice Department says That's how Google behaves. One really vivid example of this, at least allegedly, is this $12 billion payment. Google paid that Apple to make sure Google would be the predetermined search engine on every single Apple device. Practical effect. A cz you notice every time somebody buys an iPhone or an iPad and they search for something on the Internet. It's a Google search. Some people might consider that good. Why is it a problem in short? Because if you're a search competitors say, being or duck duck, go or you pick one. You don't get any attention. I mean, how often Scott, are you googling things on your phone, right? I mean, we say right, exactly. So their dominance is baked into the verb. So and the Justice Department points this out and Inside Google Becoming the default search engine was a huge priority. The Justice Department says. Google insiders called the prospect of not getting the deal code red. Google CEO Sundar Finch. I met one on one with Apple's Tim Cook to hammer out the terms of the deal behind closed doors and, according to the court papers, and unidentified senior employees from Google wrote to an Apple counterpart. Quote Our vision is to work as if we are one company. And so I called up former Justice Department antitrust lawyer John Newman and asked Is this collusion? Don't say it's somewhere in the middle. It's not classic collusion, so it's not like to oil companies conspiring to raise the price of oil, for instance, it looks more like One monopolists, agreeing with another company to split the monopoly rent. So we have Google, Annapolis or technically, competitors working together to make each other stronger. What did the company say about it? Cos say, there's nothing stranger illegal about it that companies make deals all the time to get the best distribution for their products on DH. Apple just decided that Google simply was the best partner to work with. On Google says Look, people like Google, right. Its dominance and strength is the result of just how great it ISS On DH, former Justice Department lawyer Newman says. Yeah, you could be the best. But that is not an argument to not give others a fair shot. If it is true that Google will win out on a competitive playing field, and it may be Even in a competitive market. A lot of people would like to use Google. But even if that's true, that's not a reason to leave the competitive Plainfield uneven.

Tesla 'full self-driving' vehicles can't drive themselves

"Eye on Tesla's knew where newest driver assisted technology, which it's calling fool self driving mode. Okay, Jason, how full self driving is it? Yeah, not very full. But it's full Earth and what they had in the past. You know, Tesla has been known since 2015. It's had this autopilot feature, which was really about taking like cruise control kind of traditional cruise control and making it a lot more robust, you know, on the on the highway on DH that has continued to advance is up to version 8.0 now, but This is really taking it to the next level, and this is taking self driving just off of just the highway and into sort of regular local streets, and that's why they're calling it, You know, full self driving, Although it's really not these things have levels and this is really only level two out of five levels of self driving. On DH, So it's a little misleading, but it is a big step forward a little Miss Sweeting autopilot. I mean, there've already been people who've put it, not a pilot that crashed because it's not really. Why does Why does the company think you could do this? These name marketing? Yeah, but, yeah. Are they? Aren't they worried about the liability? Sued by someone who was in an auto pilot car will they have and there have been there's been lawsuits that have been investigations from Thie. You know, federal government? Um, but what they do put in these Things big disclaimers. So, for example, in the disclaimer about the self driving feature, Tesla's has language that says, as we have seated consistently, no vehicle available for purchase today is capable of driving itself right. So it starts there, and it says that you have to be Attentive and ready to take over the vehicle at all times. So that's how they get away with fine print, huh?

No, it's so it's It's actually more than I thought, but it's still like California's a state of over 55 million people. You need in order. So this is again what I'm seeing here, According to the California Constitution article to you need 623,000. It's nothing But that's that's literally like that's 1% of the state's population needs to agree with you to get something on the about. Yeah, There's so much that sucks about California. Voting is one of them because you get these from what I understand you get these things, and there's like 50 ballot questions depending on what city you live in. I think this year it's it's somewhere in that ballpark. It's It's just ridiculous. So, um, yeah, this year. You know, this is a tough one because I am a firm believer that Uber and lift both deliberately structured their business in the way they did the skirt, labor laws. So on one hand, I'm like you guys have something coming to you. On the other hand, I look at this nice say there's going to be a lot of uber and lyft drivers that aren't gonna be able to drive on the platform anymore. They're going to lose that income, and that's gonna hurt way have to be honest about that. It's going to hurt an awful lot of uber and lyft drivers. The remaining ones. Are going to end up coming away, probably with better wages and definitely with better benefits, and and that's kind of that's the trade off that ends up being made here. What I hope that does then is maybe spur some additional competition in the space saying Hey, This is you know, now a service where the prices have come up to where they're competitive or in some cases more expensive than taxis. Hey, let's see if we could generate some real innovation to actually drive those costs down instead of just trying to save on our labor costs by not covering health insurance. Yes, I mean one. I'm not so undecided on this or you know you're not decided on obey. You see both sides of it. I'm pretty firmly in the camp that All of these people need to be classified as employees. If we're going to treat them the way that they do on DH uber left several of these different companies need to be reclassified and need to have payroll taxes and benefits. In my view that is going to drive up costs. It's going Tio make taxis more favorable again, which the uber industry was able to completely skirt all the rules around the taxi industry and just kind of bankrupt them. Granted, there are plenty of taxi problems to begin with. I think the real thing that this drive when we talk about that innovation that would bring down costs again, I think the endgame for all of these guys is getting rid of the drivers entirely, whether their employees or contractors.

"And final presidential debate of wrapped up and deadly CBS reporter Steve Burns followed it from beginning to end and joins us Live for wrap up evening, Steve They leave on certainly, and more civilized affair than what we saw. With that first debate. The all important mute button I don't think became much of a factor is disagreement was expressed Maurin laughs. I rolls shaking of the head rather than interruptions between the two candidates. Topics and the lines of attack were mostly familiar. If you've been watching these two on the pandemic, President Trump's that a vaccine is weeks away, but then said he couldn't guarantee that On DH said people are learning to live with the virus. Former vice President Biden countered that saying people are learning to died with the virus and blame the president's ineptitude. For the need to shut down the country race relations and other flash point in the debate, the president teed up in attack involving Biden's 1994 crime bill, and the president called himself the least racist person in the room. Biden said parts of that 1994 bill were a mistake and mentioned President Trump's words at the last debate involving the proud boys, saying the president's dog whistle is as big as a foghorn. So definitely a wide ranging debate. I'd say night and day from the first in terms of control and substance, And now we have the finish line in sight for this race just 11 days until Election Day, leave on.

Pope backs civil unions among same-sex couples

"We start with Pope Francis making some major waves in the Vatican. Marianne Duddy Burke is executive director of Dignity. Yusa. That's a Catholic LGBTQ, you advocacy group. Working to reform the church. Thanks for joining us. So be S O. I'm always a little leery about saying about any institution. That's a few 1000 years old. That something is. Ah, you know, Ah, breakthrough or something is monumental or something is whatever. Ah because I fear being ah, engage in hyperbole. But how significant is what the pope says in this forthcoming documentary? Well, it has the potential to be all of those things that you mentioned. But I need to warn listeners to be a little bit cautious here. We've had numerous instances where Pope Francis Says something and then it's kind of walked back or put into context or in other ways kind of softened a bit in terms of positive statements on LGBTQ issues, So I think that we need to listen to what we're hearing from this documentary, But we need to hear the context and frankly, we need to hear what kind of response the Vatican makes in the next day or two. I was going to ask you about that, because I know in the past that is an issue that has come up. He's made statements that that could be taken is positive towards same sex couples. And then the official Vatican organs would come out with. Well, what he meant to say was this and what this means is that on DH, so on and so forth. So is this evidence of kind of a break in or maybe even a struggle for control over the doctrine of the church between the pope himself and some of the other people in the in the higher up the hierarchy of the church? I think it's really a sign that the official Catholic hierarchy does not know how to deal with the issues of the LGBTQ people and our families. And they're trying to stay consistent with both their own teachings on same sex relationships on gender identity on all of Theis issues that our community raises for the church to deal with, and also with the fundamental Catholic teaching, supporting the dignity. 80 and humanity of every person as a child of God, and the church is overall approach to LGBT Q issues is really in conflict with that fundamental respect for God's creation. How important let's take it at face value and say that what the pope says in this documentary is what he means. Does it really matter, though? I mean, certainly American Catholics. A lot of them are sort of pick and choose Catholics, right? I mean, they kind of picked the things that they want to follow. And the ones that they don't theyjust don't so Doesn't make that much of a difference in 2020. If this truly is a signal that the Vatican is no longer going to be an obstacle for legal protections for same sex couples for our kids. For LGBTQ people in general. It is a huge game changer globally for so many parts of the world where gay and trans people have no legal protections whatsoever. This could put our community in an entirely different category, making lives safer. And easier and moving folks more into the center of the mainstream of whatever society they live in. We also of course, we'll need to see if that means that church officials are willing to reconsider. The harmful and dehumanizing teachings and policies that flow from Catholic theology. At this point, it's all very interconnected, and it really does have an impact on people's lives.

GM Reveals All-Electric Hummer

"Had been waiting for an all new all electric version of the Hummer designed for off road and on road use, and with acceleration that would have been impossible in a combustion engine version. We talked with GM President Mark Royce about where this new Hummer will fit in the marketplace. JMC is really the on ly premium truck brand out there. If you think about it. Most of their competitors are brand extensions for that, So we have GMC and we have homer. In a premium channel for trucks, and that's a very distinguishable piece of what we're doing with both brands you have the 84 84 acts and things like that for for GMC. I think you'll see that that grow. But then you have the Hummer. You know, the Hummer model under the GMC umbrella as well, which is sort of the ultimate off road piece of that so very carefully designed and executed with different attributes, different designs and different gotta market strategies. Mark you mentioned competitors. Let's talk about competitors in the E V space you have for now, with a 1 50 evey they've announced you've got, of course, Tesla with their pickup truck. How does this compare this Hummer evey year? The direct competitors against Are you going for a somewhat different market? I think it's like nothing else on believe it that this truck is is very different from What are competitors have described most recently with the peace of the light duty pickup truck, and then a few quite a few months back with What with the other electric only competitors is doing with their truck and I don't I don't really know until we see those come into the marketplace with those trucks are but I can tell you what this is, and this is Right now, Like nothing else. Talk about what may be a sister truck. The badger from Nikola GM obviously announced a fairly large arrangement with nickel a lot of controversy around it. Is the badger going forward. Do you see that? Is something complimentary to what you're doing? The Humber evey? Well, you know, we won't sell in market that truck That will be Nicholas. That's what Nick was doing. And the big difference there is that truck will will have a fuel cell. And so it's still a fuel cell electric truck but quite different or offering with our lt impacts on the pure electric Hummer so very different. But as far as you know, the badger and the nickel deal is going forward. Right now we're going forward and so exciting piece of this is Taking what is I believe the best fuel cell in the world with our fuel cell that is made in our joint venture with Honda right here in Michigan on DH, taking that fuel cell and looking at deploying it in the heavy duty transport market. With large trucks. You know, the class seven and eight and then also in the light duty badger truck that you mentioned. So, yes. So with the Hummer If you put this in the larger context of General Motors and its move into electric vehicles, you've announced the lyric the Cadillac lyric. Now they have the Hummer. Evey is understanding. There's a bold UV coming out as well. How does this fit into the overall portfolio that you're developing? And what comes next? It's a great question. If you look at the way we've designed the platforms, both on the A truck platform are BT Battery Electric truck platform and then are better electric vehicle platform. Those two dedicated platforms are quite different. Onda approach is quite different than many others that are in introducing electric vehicles. Reason why I say that is because again we're deploying our module or pack are multi M battery source out of our Lordstown plant in Ohio. That is Designed and executed to be high volume. And the reason why that's important again for the customer and for for the market is because we can really take because of scale. And chemistry that we've developed. In fact, right here we have a chemistry developing lab for ourselves and our packs right here at the Tech center in Warren, Michigan. That quick development of chemistry and then deploying that chemistry and our lt impacts is really the secret time driving that cost down so that we can offer Not only Hummers and Cadillacs, but Eve's and beyond for the mass market piece of our other brands that do higher volume and right in the heart of the market, like Chevrolet and Chevrolet crossovers, trucks, all of those vehicles and so this has been really, really done very carefully. And that goes also into the electric motors that we're doing ourselves. That was GM President Mark Royce on the All new Hummer evey coming out of thin next year for Bloomberg. First word news. We go

He was a teacher at working in a suburb of Paris who had been leading a class on freedom of expression, something that is very dear to many people. Well, all over the world, particularly in France, where it's official status is a secular country is closely guarded by The government and many citizens on DH part of this session, the lad with a discussion about cartoons of Islam's Prophet Mohammed, which would be considered blasphemous to Muslims. He showed these cartoons there's apparently angered a number of Muslim parents. Word began spreading. This became something of a local controversy. And on Friday afternoon, Samuel Patty had finished work. He was heading home from school on DH. He was attacked. He was beheaded on a street in broad day light. All of this in a suburb of the French capital, and Natalia was shot dead by police. He was an 18 year old man. Hey, is today receiving the Legion of Honor, which is Frances? Highest award. I think part of the shocking aspect of this people J T friends has had a number of these is the mist attacks in the past five and a bit years. This almost particularly grisly but also very much targeted. And indeed, the French anti terror prosecutor has been giving some details about this just in the past few minutes. And he said that students at this school identified the teacher for the attacker in exchange for money and has said that this teacher could only have been identified with help from students and indeed to two students are among seven people. You have been handed over to a judge today to face possible criminal charges. Yeah, they need to shut that

Guardo's, You know, but all of the saddle in the open fire on a little people saw such enjoy about this morning about 52 people. We shut down so it was soaked arable and you can see the puts off the light so that we could get a clear shot off what was happening on the area and also understand the the security cameras that might have provided images of what was going on. Also got taken down now. Didn't that That gave you a warning, didn't it? You and the other protesters that something was going to happen? That was the one but you can see the food That was for Vita that it was very, very peaceful. We will hold no weapons. There was no where person, So we only have been a drunk like you see, people were sitting down on the ground because then first on Was not a fight. You understand that, and that's a very important point to make, because elsewhere, the authorities have said some of these protests have turned violent or violent elements have tried to take advantage You're saying at lucky last night, there was no violence offered a tall Can I ask you about one particular thing? I'm sure you have seen. The army on its official Twitter handle has been saying this is all fake news. The army was never there. You saw the army. How do you know that They were the Army.

The issue. No own uniforms. The killed are very close. And it's very difficult to get to the bottom of what's going on, particularly how many people were injured. You. You mentioned the figure of around 50. Now That's the first time that I've heard that figure. What What are you basing that on? Is that what people are saying at the moment before saying that life was put on After I left yesterday, but on you consider people were you know down on this truth, reason why you're not getting the actual father of budding stories because the government is involved.

This is suddenly I wasn't able to get those politicals people school so terrible a slight but when you see when, but when you see what happened to demonstrations. Are you going to go back to the street? Will you carry on protesting? You know, for now, For now, we have two weeks before the officials on what to do, because we don't know now how this situation is going to be because we can't trust nobody in the government of females in this country. We don't like that coming. But if people go back on the street again, so wait have We have to settle down. I really thought about this carefully because this is a question of Marchal. Pound it, So listen. Thank you very much indeed.

"Look at me not that there's a huge gap here between the secretary. My do you on this my main point that I would agree with completely as as as a former prosecutor is someone who works in the Attorney General's office I hate commenting on things I don't know all the facts to, and you know what? I'm used to prosecute cases. You look at the entire record before you decide what stick for grand jury decide how to proceed listen the law enforcement you go look at the defendant's you figure out what to do here we prosecute stop by twitter and this is you WanNa know why a lot of the violence in the you know this You know rhetoric that gets heated. It's in part because of that, right we're prosecute cases and we decide how we're GONNA make public policy by two hundred, Eighty, eight characters on twitter. You know statements on facebook. So let's take the idea of like the insignias. I've seen some pictures. It shows that these were uniform. I've seen some that showed the markings on the uniforms that people didn't see. You know I know that we've got a number. To go around the country that use unmarked vehicles to conduct operations every day and the secretary would agree with that right we do that. Sometimes, there are reasons for it at times. And here's an important deal, and I'm going to read this exhibit when the State of Oregon was forced to put me on actual vaccine illegal filing. A. This is the best they can do from the United States District Court of Oregon Portland Division. State Award presented just one example of an arrest without probable cause in one example of an unreasonable seizure that is the sum total of the evidence. It appears the stage largely backed away from any arguments. Federal agents were not at all identifiable as law enforcement. That's one date of there might be other cases. My point is there's a lot of hyperbole. There's a lot of noise it goes around the stop and I just hope we can get back to adjudicating these things in court where they're supposed to be adjudicated. Apt to add this. Let's not overlook the underlying reason why there have been so many demonstrations and protests across this country and across the world over the last several months, and that is the repeated instances of excessive force. Our nations law enforcement, the overwhelming majority, and I'm sure congressman why would agree with this the overwhelming majority of demonstrations marches in this country in reaction to George Floyd have been peaceful I participated in marches here in Montclair New Jersey that makes me a protester. So we're into this discussion about Portland, but that's not overlooked the larger issue of how we got to where we are and what needs to be done to address the grievance that black lives matter. But if I might take thirty seconds is we're finally agree but I but I do want to say when we talk about the agreed agreed overwhelming is the American way that the overwhelming majority of diesel I've seen a stat you've probably seen it as secretary of ninety three percent. That's still leaves seven percent and I've seen studies in numbers read report just yesterday upwards at five hundred, fifty different gatherings that were violent that resulted in looting and burning and destroying property in killing people endangering lives. It's gotTa be careful about painting with a broad brush stroke about the nature of what we've seen. So yet ninety three to be peaceful near the great ones participated. There's seven percent of caused a Lotta damage and you know billion dollars worth of damage according to at least one insurance estimate. We saw what's happening notion. We saw it happened in Minnesota Portland Cetera and we we need to be very cautious that and make sure that you know we're we're keeping the streets say. This exchange has highlighted that this question of violence in America political or otherwise is broader than just what happens in seven percent of protests context We have the critical context of the concerns about excessive use of force by police, but we also have other contexts. Violence Turnley did her her looming around us and it raises an interesting question about whether we are living through a time in which various forms of domestic political violence is indeed significantly on the rise I'm a I'm a professor in scholar that focuses at times on. The history of terrorism there are there are many waves of this in our history. I worry greatly amidst moment right now I'd appreciate if both of you if I could invite you to reflect on what you see in that broader picture, do we indeed have a growing problem of domestic political violence? If we call it terrorism for something else that's not the important thing Do we have a growing problem? What is going on? It's giving rise to that is so Roy Lemme ask you to weigh in then Secretary Johnson. Sure course I'm quite competent tribal agree on this in broad terms, and then of course, we gotta get the root causes and then what we do about yeah. There's clearly some heightened violence going on but you know there's been periods death throughout our country right? I mean we have in fact, a war nineteen, sixty eight was a pretty notorious. Thomas Civil, unrest for a lot of understandable reasons, terms of what happened in April of sixty eight, and then again in the summer and and those those were important parts of our history and China understand. That would also remind people that we don't have the Secretary Treasury and the vice president dueling on the streets right now I mean so it has. been a part of our history that we've got conflict and disagreement of what we don't want to do is have wallison, but we don't want to do is break away from the rule of law. What we do is encourage and incite violence on our streets, and then result in damage that I was discussing earlier than I don't really need to repeat too. Much but it's very real right? These realize when talking about black lives matter. Let's talk about forty five percent of black owned businesses that have been now shutdown as direct response both the virus and the pandemic, which is affecting all as well as some of the implications of what we've been dealing with civil unrest. Let's talk about the forty three police officers. Law Enforcement Officers I should say more broadly that had been killed in the line of duty just this year sixty five that had been shot in. So some of those were lives lost. Secretary Johnson Lemme invited to pick up the threat of the conversations. I know there will be a lot and you guys agree about do you agree that we do have to at least to some extent growing problem of domestic political violence in it so What causal factors do you see in that mix? The question is, yes..

"You know that's most people at that level especially, the undersecretary they they don't because again either their political or they end or their career federal civil servants in they try to work it through the system if they if they go public. What happens is what we're experiencing right now, massive attacks from the from their bosses and it places them at risk what will happen at the end of the day to Brian Murphy whether he's proven to be correct or he's proven to be mistaken does he have a future in dhs in the trump administration? Let's say for the remainder of this administration or let's say trump wins reelection what realistically will happen by his coming forward even if it's proven that he he was accurate is probably not going to have a role there and that's why you don't see people come forward. I said it took place in margin I am reading I see was in May. Directive about playing down the Russian eight. Dan By all means ask but let me just say final on this motive for whistleblowers is generally irrelevant credibility for certainly is relevant because especially when you're talking about, he said, she said, he said he said type conversations but motive is irrelevant because it's the substance of the allegations that need to be investigated. And motive can go to credibility course. But if a disgruntled employee reveals that the company president is embezzling funds doesn't matter that the person had been fired. If in fact, the company President was embezzling funds now and more importantly. We should praise folks like Murphy whether his allegations tent turn out to be true or not. Again only needs is a good faith belief because he has been willing to step up publicly which doesn't mean those who don't step up like the anonymous whistleblower blower did anything wrong but he was willing because of the virtue of his the statue of his position. In there's no way to hide his his identity to step up and say I, think, this is wrong. We should be raising that because we want more officials to do that rather than start to question why didn't you do it sooner? I swear understand was he demoted because Chad Wolf wanted to look better after the story leaked about monitoring reporters or was he demoted because he was not doing what they were ordering him to do he was balking and being recalcitrant about. Cooking the books with the with the Intel. So it is our allegation that I think it's both is going to be the answer, the public allegations of. A which Mr Murphy was the acting undersecretary ex secretary for the allegations that he and they or it were monitoring journalists gave cover to wolf to use that as an excuse to reassign him to mowed him. When the reality is Wolf didn't think I was doing that Wolf didn't think Murphy did anything wrong but Wolf is completely annoyed and upset with all the instances and examples where Murphy was declining to follow his and White House instructions to cook the books and politicize intelligence. So this gave him the opportunity to demote him. Needless to say the House Intelligence Committee shared by Adam. Schiff is all over this and I gather murphy is going to be deposed. Twenty. By the committee. So I received a letter from congressman ship that indicated they. Wish to depose him Murphy on Monday September twenty first and that they will issue a subpoena for his testimony I have written. To DHS acting general counsel and the Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs. I did. So this morning Thursday the I asked them two things. One does the department intend to prohibit or preclude. Murphy from testifying under subpoena on the twenty-first, and secondly with respect to that testimony, as well as the Inspector General Investigation we the lawyers need to be cleared to have authorized access to classified information up to the. Level, which for the folks who don't know what that is that's the highest essentially classification level because we are unable to represent our clients interests if we are not present while he conveys his evidence of whistleblowing activities and retaliation and I asked that VHS respond to those two questions by Friday September eleventh on what grounds can they say? No, well, two separate answers for those two questions that I asked one I would certainly hope that any administration would honor a lawfully issued subpoena. From Congress, to a federal employees, I think we've had a track record on that. It is not necessarily encouraging for your. Rate, which is why I asked the HFS as to what is your intent again, what is my objective as the lawyer to protect the client from retaliation? So I wanNA know what is DHS's position? If vhs says no, we absolutely honor the subpoena he is authorized to testify. Then there's no issue with any retaliation on that point. But if D. H. says, no, we are. We are ordering him not to comply with the subpoena. than. Mr Murphy has a choice to make as to what he wants to do and I'm not GonNa I. Don't know what will do because quite honestly we're not in that position yet. 'cause we don't know what? is going to say, and again, then the answer to the second question is executive branch agencies routinely make my life difficult with giving me access to classified information when I represent whistleblowers. That's not. Has By no means isolated to this administration that has been every administration since I've been practicing law isolated to you. That is related to any private attorney other than if you're David Kendall Secretary Clinton's former lawyer who was able to have safe and store classified information in his office during the whole e mail fiasco I have never been allowed to have a safe in my office and store classified information notwithstanding the fact I have.

"Now have with US Mark Zayd lawyer for Brian, Murphy lawyer for every whistle blower who makes waves in Washington it seems these days mark. Welcome back to skulduggery. Thanks guys pleasure to be here. So quite a story your client Brian Murphy has to tell tell us a little bit about how this came about when he filed his complaint when he retained you to represent him in this matter sure and you know interesting to know quite a story because if this had been ten years ago, fifteen years ago, this will be right a front page story and constant new wrong. It wasn't even the main story going up against. Bob. Woodward is pretty tough. So well, it's you're going up against Bob Woodward but you're also going up against you know the kind of how inured people are these shocking revelations that come. This administration exactly and and that's a sad story to tell in I'm sure historians will tell it so. We filed this complaint with the Inspector General's Office at the Department of Homeland. Security? Technically I think it was the eighth it's dated September eighth, but they would have received at the morning of. September. Ninth, we only entered into the case not quite frankly not long ago end of August or so I mean, we really put this together fairly quickly so that we could get it into the cycle of everything because these this process takes a while and particularly because Congress is about to go out of. Session of course, in anticipation of having to run for re election for the house for every member after two years. So we put this together fairly rapidly in order to to push this forward but it's been in the works at least for a while because as noted in the complaint what Murphy acknowledged that he was the author of two cryer anonymous I g complaints back in two, thousand, eighteen, twenty, nineteen, or so That are part of the protected disclosures that he made. Now because it seemed to him to be clear that senior government officials, dhs either new or at least suspected, he had been the author of the anonymous complaints and so that triggered whistleblower protection even if he had been the actual author and what were those, what were those complaints about those ads do with some of the testimony that was being put forth about? The border wall and the number of terrorists coming in through the united. States. As well as I think I have to go back myself actually in in look I haven't memorized everything in this complaint because at the end of the day, it's his allegations not mine. My objectives are twofold one make sure the allegations get to the appropriate oversight authorities in the legislative and executive branches and to protect the whistle blower from retaliation. You'd have lawful retaliation but retaliation the merits of the case fall to Murphy especially because you know we have conversations of Murphy and wolf the acting secretary ending nominee as well as Murphy and coach Anneli. The Deputy Secretary Yeah we'll walk mark walk us through the specific allegations of abuse that Murphy Alleging Chore So there were seven or eight disclosures as I recall one had to do with whether there was perjured testimony before. Congress concerning the border wall in twenty eighteen, twenty, nineteen. Another had to do with whether or not Kuch. Anneli was trying to distort intelligence that was coming in regarding Guatemala Honduras and El Salvador El Salvador as to why were asylum what why were these individuals nationals of those countries trying to come into the United States and coach Anneli wanted to according to Murphy this is all Murphy's allegations I'd I know nothing I'm Conveying what the client states. Kucha wanted to make changes outlining all these high levels of corruption in violence and poor economic conditions, which is not what the intelligence reports were reflecting and when he saw the Intel reports according to Murphy, he accused unknown in deep state intelligence analyst where we heard that before deep state intelligence analysts were compiling this information to undermine President Donald J trump's policy objectives with respect to asylum. Any wanted this to be changed and Kucha Anna Murphy said no in fact coach Anneli wanted Murphy and Murphy's boss at the time David glower. Was the intelligence chief for DHS wanted to identify the names of the individuals who compiled the reports and either buyer or reassigned them immediately and both cloudy and Murphy refused to do. So that was the second one the third at least how I'm counting it. Had to do with again attempted censorship of intelligence analysis pertaining to Russian efforts to influence undermine US interests and this had to do in particular with information that the Russians were trying to undermine elections etcetera and dealing with a whole host of disclosures and Murphy again was saying look I'm not going to change what the Intel report says day this case it was it was the acting secretary erect Chad Wolf who ordered him to hold back that intelligence wanted to hold back on Intel assessments on the threat of Russian interference. Which of course was making again, raising all these questions of the trump administration and Russia and instead report more on interference activities by China Iran which as you know has been in is a completely different view relationship with which we have with those countries. Okay. Too quick questions on that one. What was Chad? Wolf stated reason for directing Murphy to do that. That's the first question that I have a second one. So you know again I know what's in the four corners of the plate at least from the complaint Wolf. Told Murphy that those instructions originated from the National Security? Adviser Robert O'Brien. Now O'Brien interviewed on Fox News the other day and was asked about this and I thought gave striking statements because I at least in the The excerpts that I heard, which perhaps were not the entire segment of the interview with the experts that I heard did not have actually denying it but instead was more about deflection saying, well, Hey, I don't know who murphy is I never met Murphy, which is fine because we never said Murphy met O'Brien we said Wolfe told Murphy that these instructions came from O'Brien and O'Brien said I've been one of the most strongest strident people against Russia again, I don't really care about doesn't your client's alleged that Wolfe said this needs to be done. So we don't embarrass the president the President does look bad. Look bad Y- in a different..

"Think it's a message being sent to the Office of. Intelligence analysis that this product is not to go out until secretary says, it can go out everything. Is there another leap you can you can draw based on who had is how this administration operates that this is this does this suggest to you that that kind of flag that that the Secretary Wolf would have because of the president's concerns There have been concerns that raised, regarding, acting secretary wealth at his willingness to embrace the political rhetoric. In the narrative, the political narratives of this administration have. Has served undermine the credibility or at least created perception much broad part of our population that the department is operating based on political considerations verse says. Operational hand and. What the threat intelligence actually tell us and I think you can point to over the past three and a half years. This isn't simply limited to to chat chadwell though I. Think there are some things that he's doing right now that have people scratching their heads particularly as it relates to his rhetoric involving state and local authorities during this time period the time period of these protests but you know if you look at the department in the way that it described conditions at the southern border to. Suggest that there were terrorists point across the border or that conditions were more dangerous than they were to justify the border wall and some of the other actions taken if you look at the fact that the department's leadership. And the White House. Emphasized the threat posed by of left describe as left wing radical extremists versus what their own intelligence reporting saying, which is there's violence occurring in cities across the country by. Extremists on both the fire right in the fire left. The willingness to attack local officials with very. Virulent language. You know in my experience, if you have concerns about how local officials were behaving operationally, that was a private discussion between senior managers at the department does local officials the willingness to throw out there publicly in blame local officials for destruction violence occurring in cities you is problematic. It undermines. The credibility of the organization, but it also undermines the relationship with the state and local officials in the department. Of Homeland. Security has a broad set of missions and he can't conduct an almost any of them without strong support from state and local governments. So there's a number of law enforcement official spoken to over the past few days are scratching their heads saying, why? Why.

"Said very simply give you the title. The title was a Russia Likely, to denigrate health of US candidates to influence twenty twenty election and this bulletin a made it clear that it was really US candidate that US candidate is Joe Biden. They say we as we assess Russian, malign influence actors likely to continue denigrating. Presidential candidates through allegations of poor mental or physical health to influence the outcome of the twenty twenty elections. That's from the bulletin they point to some examples including. Stories that were placed in Russia controlled News outlets like rt in sputnik about Biden Biden's occasional misspeaking is signs of dementia and anyway. So the this Bolton was was set to go out we obtained a an email that went internally to the senior leadership of of DHS. Sayings was dated July seventh this destroy seventy two months ago about two months ago saying that the Bolton was GonNa go out on July ninth. But here's to you know everybody take look at before we send it out and then within that memo going out we have. An email coming back from. The Chief of staff to Chad Wolf saying hold on. Wait. We. D. I discussed this with with as your the actual language of the email. Please hold on sending this one out until you have a chance to speak to as warm as one acting secretary Chad Wolf. That was two months ago the memo never came out. Now John. In reporting this, we obviously went to get a response from the public. Affairs folks the Department of Homeland, security? What surprised me is this response came in late last night. Is Absolutely no denial of the story. In fact, they confirmed the story they said the the reason why the memo did not go out. This bulletin did not go out is because They had questions about it. did it wasn't fully developed in terms of of of the? Intelligence behind it and. The language of this bulletin. So that's why they held it back they say. I'm suspicious of that. He told me what what, what's your take on this you worked over there you worked in Intelligence Department of Homeland Security. What what is the significance of this bulletin being drafted seemed rather routine Planned to be sent out in suddenly because the chief of staff to the secretary says hold off it doesn't go out. Yeah. So there's a few issues and I'm skeptical as you are. So I as it relates to the release of this specific or any product coming out of HSS intelligence arm intelligence analysis office is. As a product is developed it goes through rigorous scrutiny by lawyers by a part of the department involved with civil liberties in civil rights, protection and privacy, and it goes to rigorous review from an intelligence perspective are the sources credible is the information credible you know can we confirm and if it passes all those bars if all that? You know if it goes through all of that, that product is finalized and right before it's released. A memo an email goes out with saying this products about to be released take a look at it. You may get questions so it's not that it's sent around the department for approval it sent out to Legislative Affairs Public Affairs the secretary's office saying we're about to release this intelligence product get questions about it. We WanNa give you a heads up about it. That's the point that this memo was apparently blocked, and that's highly unusual and in my time at DHS and as you pointed out I work both in the secretary's office. And I also lead I in a a short time period. During my time. In my experience, a product was never blocked in that way. Maybe you played with the timing of the release because someone had an event or on travel depending on the on the importance of the event but. You never I never experienced a product being blocked the second point that's really important about this is that. This along with other reporting suggests that Russia's still of concern they're they're using the spreading disinformation and conspiracy theories in an effort to influence the outcome of the election The way they are doing that is through a combination of Social media to and and what they call grey sites which are. Online sites that are supposed to look like a media think site and they introduce this information and they hope that mainstream media sources, politicians, others will amplify disinformation they're sending in your story suggests that that's the process that was followed with this that dhs in the intelligence community picked up that this was a a narrative that Russian Russia was using as part of their disinformation campaign and they were able to successfully get the mainstream environment to pick up on it I and amplify it as well. Now one point is this bulletin and again I've posted this. If you look on posted on my twitter feed, you'll be able to see a full right up on all this on ABC News Dot Com. You can go look and you can see the actual documents here and it's important that the bulletin. Headline about Russia the bulk of it is about Russia at also says that they assess That actually, the Iranians and the Chinese off are trying to do a similar thing questioning the mental health preparedness of presidential candidates although in that case, eighties. Trying to raise questions about the mental preparedness of of Donald Trump suggesting he's a narcissist and. An has mental problems. That's the Chinese and the Iranians but the bulk of this is is about the Russians. What I want to ask is the other part of the one I wanna ask you about is the other part of the DHS explanation as to why this was blocked. They say the three other bulletins on election security were sent out by the Department of Homeland, security in the month of August alone. So in other words, they're not blocking information about elections security is just that they didn't believe this one was really ready to go. Do you what do you make of that explanation in? Do you have any visibility on that? These are these are not classified documents, but they're also not generally public released documents they go out to to to law enforcement. And other stakeholders do do you know about these other three bulletins and? Whether or not they actually get into this question of Russian interference specifically. I don't know what three bulletins they are referencing in particular. There has been reporting that has come out of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The intelligence community more broadly and even Department of Homeland, security talking about. Interference in the twenty twenty election but there but there's also a growing body of public reported and some of this is coming from people who recently have left the the trump administration that the intelligence community is basically operates under an understanding that reporting on Russia will be met with anger by the president will a negative response and the way that they can get information out about Russia is by blending it together with references to other countries like China and Iran, and that's really from my perspective as somebody who has worked for Republicans and Democratic administrations who has worked in Homeland Security and law enforcement a national security for over three decades. That's really dangerous because. The only thing that should be guiding the release of intelligence products. Particularly, intelligence products are intended to help us counter act a serious threat. is to make sure that their objective and they're based on fact, and they're not influenced altered or blocked for political considerations and if in if important intelligence and think about this, right, we're talking about disinformation campaigns we're talking about foreign intelligence services. Planting conspiracy theories and lies into the public discourse to influence how people on election day whether they decide not to come out and vote or whether they vote in a certain. The only way you can counteract that is by identifying those. That inaccurate information and notifying people and that's what this bulletin was intended to write. This bulletin was intended was a message from the Department of Homeland Security saying, Hey, we feel highly competent that Russia as part of their disinformation effort is spreading this line narrative about Joe Biden's mental acuity, and we think you need to know this so that when you see this information, you disregard it. So by blocking this, you're actually undermining the ability of our government to protect against foreign interference. John can you try to decode for us the the meaning of make sure you make sure you're talking to Chad Wolf before this goes out Chad Wolf has been a controversial figure John John Giancarlo interviewed him on Sunday on this week but a lot of folks have been arguing that his that he's in the role now as acting secretary and an improper fashion, the president of has indicated that he's. Nominating him although it's unclear if he's ever going to be installed on a permanent basis, he was chief of staff before to to Secretary Nielsen. But what does it mean to you or how can you read between lines here to to figure out what it means that you had to check with Chad? Wolf before we go any further? I think it means exactly what you just described I..

"I believe the DHS Inspector General's opened an investigation into the department's activities in Portland I'm although I don't think specifically and Adam Schiff the chairman of the Intelligence Committee of the House intelligence. Committee has sent a letter to a acting, Deirdre Secretary Chad Wolf requesting information on the activities that we've been describing here so. What do you think the mechanisms are for addressing these problems I'm from what from what we just described. It certainly doesn't seem like a inspector general report is going to be sufficient but from Adam shifts perspective is the right answer to. Hold hearings try to get Chad Wolf in front of him to what extent is this something that can be addressed through. These mechanisms that we have now and to what extent is this something that really. is going to need a change of administration to be tackled. You know. Inspectors General and congressional oversight are probably the two main. Vehicles for short and medium-term addressing of this kind of thing you know there's also journalism that mission some light on things and there are other mechanisms. But those are two of the big ones. intelligence oversight has you know at a lot of problems particularly on the house side recently both under a chairman Nunez then I think it's instill in difficulty under chairmanship it's very divided and very partisan at I. Think it can be done well or badly you know depending. And I don't know how it will be done here. I hope it will be done with an eye towards really getting at. The essential adherence to rule of law requirements and the procedures and not turned into a circus. But you know it might be, and that's not to say that they shouldn't publicize it on the contrary that's part of their role but there are ways to do it that are more or less partisan and approach. And more or less serious on the inspector general side. You actually don't know who the Inspector General of Digest but all assume that there will be a competent investigation and report and depending on what's found and I. Way assume that the investigation into Portland will cover Ben's situation and depending on what's found it may give rise to further investigations I mean sort of the same way in which my ro DOJ, the inspector general they're found serious serious problems that I've written about separately in the Carter page vices and Dan as a result undertook. A review of. A number of other five applications and issued some preliminary findings on that too. Doj responded very recently saying maybe the problems aren't that bad although some of the problems are are not so great like not having a woods file. Can't be. Undone a but but in other words what the inspector general fines will give rise to possible for the review and and hopefully, they will have an eye towards these broad themes like acting with the proper intelligence purpose. Fostering a culture adherence to rule of law and following the rules. and. You know. I? Mean I do think I think personally that a lot of the problems that we're seeing a lot of the cultural pressure to deviate comes from the top from president trump in particular and his closest. Political allies in advisers in sports, and so I do think that there's reason to believe that if there were election inviting wins that you would have a much higher return to normalcy. But in the meantime, if trump wins a second term, you have these existing mechanisms, congressional oversight inspectors, general chief among them to ferret out and get to things they're not perfect. No system is perfect but. You know they they have in the past produced some. Important information and fostered some significant reforms. Yeah I. I will give a slightly less optimistic view of this. I don't think anything's going to happen without a change of administration the Congressional Oversight Process, which is IMP- very important is. At most a remedial madder and the inspector general process in other agencies has been. Trampled on. Both of these are very important processes, but they are responsive processes not. They are not going to be the thing that. The most they can do is hold back a tide or slow it down as long as Donald Trump is in office and wants Ta Jess to be rounding up people, building walls, holding kids in cages and beating up on protesters that's going to happen, and you know the question is, how much can you minimize it and how much redress can you get for it? Not? Can you put Da H. on a solid and responsible course and? I think you know realistically you are talking about a change in administration and the you know the installation of a secretary of Homeland Security who actually cares how the agency behaves across a wide range of areas and you know I do think in a new administration, you're going to have serious thought to whether the creation of the Department of Homeland Security was a mistake and should be the government should be organized in a somewhat different fashion. Yeah that was going to be my next question right is is what this says about the existence of of deejays itself I mean, David. I'm curious for your thoughts there does this further undermined the case for digests in your view? I mean, I think a lot of people have had a lot of doubts about da from before it was created and the advise ability of. Putting together all these disparate components I've seen the difficulty of that kind of corporate merger in the private sector of because for Time Warner shortly after the AOL Time Warner merger. And, I've seen it in government in various ways and I think those challenges have been there from the beginning broadly speaking that is developing a unified culture and identity and bringing all these components together. and I think Kerry Cordeiro has done some very good work recently sort of. Going through it and documenting things that are problematic. I don't know whether anybody really has the stomach to pull it apart of because that will no doubt produce further disruption than an organization organizational mayhem at least in the short term, but you certainly have the feeling that. I do at least and I think many do intelligence community to rip off what you said about Shane's reporting earlier the DA jus- just needs a lot of work to get itself organized. It's a gigantic sprawling agency with a very wide ranging set of missions and it. It hasn't. I. Think come together in the way that that optimists hoped for. An it has been I. think more in keeping with pessimistic predictions from the beginning it needs some real work and the work is not glamorous. It's not headline grabbing. It's kind of putting together the plumbing and the infrastructure and the sort of back office elements that make thing cohere as an agency that is not the kind of work that people typically appointed his cabinet secretaries like to do feel that they will be rewarded for doing. It needs to be done if the agencies to survive in fulfill its mandate. The argument for the Department of Homeland Security was never very good. And interestingly, the department was. Largely. The Brainchild of two senators of whom are somewhat discredited at this point, and so I wonder actually if it will have as strong a political constituency as it has in the past but.

"Everything gets thrown out doctrine. And and I WANNA walk you through that because I firmly believe there is not litigation right now. I don't know why there isn't litigation right now. There's litigation about Ken Anneli but there's no litigation about chat, Wolf and I'm trying to get legal organizations to leave. Let's drag you out. Our amicus pencils I leave that as a possibility if I can't get somebody involved because. Because in fact, let me let me jump ahead. That's how these lawsuits get brought. Right, which is the agency does something that adversely affects us, and then we sue for a declaratory judgment in federal court that says this agency action is not is ultra virus, because the acting director has no authority to be the acting director. That's how these cases get brought, so we need to find something. It's not hard to find things that the Department of Homeland. Security has done that that hurt people. We need to find rules and regulations, and then work with those plaintiffs to to develop standing to challenge the. Of everything. Has Done under Chad Wolf sense, for you know for the past month and a half since he went out of status of being in compliance with the F.. E. R., even so there are a couple of asterisks. The first is some positions are exempt from the federal vacancies reform. Now that doesn't apply here. Fortunate Right Director of the Department of Homeland Security is. Not only a PS position, but it's a PS position that is covered by the federal vacancies reform, so we don't have that problem but I do WanNa flag that. There are some positions that are are covered by the act but nevertheless their responsibilities are exempt for. From that enforcement provisions, and now it's really really weird, but that is the case, but this is second restriction, and that is that the vacancies act limits that temporary officials ability to perform quote, the functions and duties of a vacant office. That is a PAAS office. Right subject to advice and consent. So for the purposes of the Vacancies Act that function or duty must either be one something that is established by statute or regulation. And then to required to be performed by the applicable officer. And, only that officer and let me unpack that for a minute. What what that means is. If this is something that Chad Wolf does. But. It's something that he could have delegated to somebody else. Then that is not considered a core function or duty of his office. I wasn't sure when to poke in, but I was a little F- used as to how this would work in practice I mean what kinds of things who decides what kinds of things? It's not as though everything. They can't and obviously a lot of stuff. You just can't undo. He can't undo. Having arrested a bunch of people and throwing them into vans I really I mean guess you could undo like a policy perhaps, but and then also I would imagine and I think this seems to be what you're getting out. There might be arguments for. For like well. This is something that would have happened. Anyway that you know some people down. The chain of command were doing on their own, so does it make sense to undo that so is that what this is referring to hear? That is exactly right, and that and not and not just exactly right, but for the exact right reason, the exception is are things that you can argue in the court would have been done even if you know evil director acting director. Wolf was not there right, so let me give you the steel man argument for that right? The steel argument for that would be tomorrow. Chad Wolf hires a new receptionist at D. H. s rain like. Does. Do we have to fire the receptionist really? Classic you know government official and you know he's just doing his job, Riley. It's not his fault and you know we we got. We've got thirty percent unemployment right now. Like get a job as receptionist even to Evil Chad Wolf Lake of take your job and so yeah, like obviously even if Chad Wolf is the guy who does the hiring. It's not hard to say okay, but that's Adela global function. That's not something Chad. Wolf had to do. It's something he could have sloughed off to anybody in the department and they would have hired. You know Joe to be the The receptionist anyway, so joke gets to stay on his job, so if hiring joe is delegates. And announcing, a policy on sending plane closed uniformed DHS personnel into Portland to go crack skulls and throw people into vans is clearly non-bailable Where where's the line between the two? The answer to that is as you might suspect. We don't know the reason that we don't know is because. The F. E. R. A. is is only twenty years old, and it doesn't get litigated very odd. It hasn't been abused in this way before. And this is part of the evil genius of the trump administration. Right that they know that they can have a well see right. That is the Office of Legal Council a division within bill bars. Department, of Justice. You know now staffed entirely by sycophants, writing indefensible letters, and that's where we get the opinion while you can't indict a sitting president, no matter what and and people see that and they think that means that's like some ironclad constitutional principle. Yeah, it means a lawyer hired by the guy who was loyal to the president wrote was lying amendment Al Yeah. Why don't you write me a memo on whether our boss can right like yeah and that would be something that you should be suspicious of under the best of circumstances, and obviously under the not quite there of circles in says the circumstances. Yeah, exactly so you're looking at kind of scant case law right so for example there is one district court federal trial court that said they're two different plausible ways to interpret the definition of what counts as functions and duties right. Functions and duties could mean all of the responsibilities that are expressly assigned only to one particular office. That's one way did that would be the broad definition. The narrow definition would be a more limited category of duties that are not only that first part right not only assigned to one office, but also assigned to one office, and expressly may not be delegated to anybody else and that that. That would be how we would understand. The text of the duties quote required to be performed by that particular officer and the court then went to say we have no guidance as to whether the broad definition or the narrow definition is correct. This was a this was a discussion in dicked. It was not crucial to the holding. So the answer is the answer is we don't know. And as you point out, it is why Homeland Security. is in the process of doing things that are super duper hard to undo right. They're not promulgating new rules and regulations. Many of those rules and regs.

"Positions throughout the federal bureaucracy right, it's about a thousand that are directors and assistant directors and deputy directors, and they are appointed by the president, but they require the advice and consent of the Senate right, so other words there an area where that the president has kind of plenary power over the executive branch but this is an area where they don't right where the president is required to seek the advice and consent of the Senate and that's why we have. Cabinet level nominees! Are Paas officials right they they must be approved by the Senate. The Senate is fifty three forty-seven Republican. They'd been rubber-stamping everything. Trump has done since the very beginning. This is not a high bar, but many of these people could not clear that Bar, and that's why there has been a dedicated effort again like we talked about last week's episode. This is not just happenstance right? These are deliberately Machiavelli in efforts within the system to try and shuffle people around and keep them in acting position so as to avoid exposing them to even the most basic level of scrutiny that they would get an a republican senate. Anyway back to six USC. Five fifty one, which says the president may designate any officer whose appointment was required to be made by with such advice and consent and who was such an officer immediately before the effective date of this chapter to act in such office, until the same is filled as provided in this chapter, who significant like okay, well, then that seems to supersede the whole. Time thing right like you're acting. You Get you get to act until there's a permanent official and so by not naming somebody that waves, the timeframe and those kinds of provisions are found throughout the US code right so that one was for homeland security, but there's one for example for the US. International Development Finance Corporation right that repeats the same language, but that language again upon which the government has relied in in litigation, begins with the phrase during the transition period, and although that seems like. Maybe that's ambiguous, and some people have argued that. That means transition from one administration to another. It doesn't mean that at all the phrase. During the transition period within statutes from the original provisions from which this was copied means remember remember that Homeland Security was created as an agency in two thousand and two right yeah, and so it means during the transition period while we're creating this agency and moving responsibilities, and and and changing the laws to stick all the stuff under this new executive agents right that was that expired in two, thousand and four. This exception hasn't been good law for sixteen years. Yeah, it takes time to set up an exact, but like da Justice set up right like it's the the transition period is over. So. That's not a good excuse. Transition out of it. We should start seeing dismantle. Absolutely that that that would be an excellent position for our next Democratic president now I have good news and bad. I start with the bad news which is. Under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act if somebody has overstayed their welcome. There is no provision in the LAW TO REMOVE THEM FROM OFFICE You can't kick them out. Even if they're outside the two hundred ten day window. So that sounds Super Bat right. It turns out the mechanism that they put in place and again I think not I think this was clearly inadvertent. Right like this was the Federal Vacancies Reform Act was passed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety eight. Nobody was thinking. We would have donald trump and people trying to evade the law. This is just our good luck, but the mechanism they put in place is much much stronger than just kicking out an acting director who has overstayed their welcome. The mechanism is five USC, thirty three forty eight DC one, and what it says is, if an acting director overstays. They're welcome. then. All of the actions taken by the agency are void abbondio, which is Latin for from the beginning that means and again. I I am one hundred. I'm talking about the Asterisk by that, but that means that everything if Chad Wolf is outside of the statutory period everything he has done for the past forty days is ultra virus? Oh, I thought on anthem, our inning of his entire. Okay, so just back to win, he should have been out is back at at the point, at which he is no longer appropriate, a appropriately considered the director of of Homeland Security. Everything Homeland Security does at his direction is void. Bright, not voidable right not can be challenged is presumptively void from the moment that he's no longer deserves to be there, so it puts the onus. Brilliant and why a highlight! This is the kind of model. We need to follow in the post. Trump era right because it used to be, you could say okay well. You know you gotTa do X. But but like you know clear as Kushner right. Like. Where was the harm of you you? You put your son in law on the payroll even though it's. It's that's clearly against the law, right? Where's the remedy? There was no remedy well. You know we just. We think presidents probably won't do that well, you. You didn't count on Donald. Trump and and plenty of executive branch positions follow that model of like we're telling you. This is against the law. Well, what happens if the president violates it well? We're Telegu. Sternly worded. Crunch rap is is headed to the office. This provides the model for what our laws need to look like going forward and that is. Anything, you do in excess of this is void ebony show from the moment. You no longer belong in office. You everything you've done. gets undone. Wow, it's one weird trick. This has been confirmed by the Supreme Court. Case called national, Labor Relations Board versus southwest West, General One, thirty, seven, Supreme Court, nine, twenty, nine, two, thousand, seventeen, but. As with all good news. Bad News first and then the good news. Not Now we got bad news. And then undo the. News it's a bad new sandwich I'm sorry. I think it's good. News Santa Sorry Okay pedantry argument, the inside of the sandwiches. WHAT THE SANDWICHES SANDWICHES! Turkey sandwiches in Turkey and then a piece of bread in the middle to. Off How good!

"Welcome dubbing arguments. This is episode. Four hundred seven hundred Thomas Smith that's Andrew. Tour's. How you doing Andrew. I am fantastic Thomas. How're you well? You Still mad about secret police arresting protesters, but you know. Otherwise fine I guess we've got a lot of stuff show. We're GonNa Talk About Flynn. We're going to talk about one of the leaders in the evil clubhouse for doing bad stuff in the trump administration, acting secretary, Wolf, and what's going on there and but before we get to that, you wanted to talk a little bit about some Intel on Russian. Interference with Brexit yeah yeah so. So as this is, airing will have given a speech hope you listened to the good thinking, society and skeptics in the pub, UK organized by a friend of the show, and and our our personal friend Michael Marshall I'm going to try and get that audio and the slides and make that available at least two patrons like you know like we do with my speeches. It's it. It should be good right. Marsh sent me. The reluctantly released UK, intelligence report on Russian interference with Brexit and I thought I would highlight a couple of things I. Think are pretty instructive as we face an election here in the US in two thousand, twenty and people continue not to take seriously the threat of a hostile foreign power trying to subvert that election so. Again these are UK, intelligence sources right from a conservative UK, government paragraph, four. What Russia wants the security threat posed by Russia is difficult for the West to manage as our view, and that of many others it appears fundamentally nihilistic Russia seems to see foreign policy as a zero sum game any actions it can take which damage the West are fundamentally good for Russia which it just put in that it has also seemingly fed by paranoia, believing that western institutions have far more aggressive posture towards than they do in reality. There's a sense that Russia believes that an undemocratic might is right. World plays to strengthen which lead it to undermine the rules-based international order while nonetheless benefiting from its membership in international, political and economic institutions I thought that was just. Just an excellent summaries that people understand what we are up against. We are up against Vladimir Putin. A strong man who wants the world to embrace the idea that might is right that strength is power that international institutions are bad and does not have an overarching ideology. He does not prefer Donald Trump, because he donald trump wants to do the same things. He prefers Donald Trump because preferring donald trump hurts the United States and anything that hurts. The West is good for Russia. Many of our listeners know this already, but I think it's worth articulating that that is the consensus of the international community that rushes out to do is to sow discord, and then the question is. Did they interfere with Brexit and the answer is we don't know. Because, the UK did not take seriously the idea that Russia could or would metal in their internal affairs. This is I'm going to include. The link in the show notes Paragraphs forty, two to forty, three and forty, seven to forty eight but basically. When Russia completed the hack and leak operation against the DNC with stolen emails, being made public a month after brexit. That was the point in which the government. The U The British, the UK government started quote belatedly realized the level of threat which Russia could pose in this area, describing that as a game changer admitting quote that prior to what we saw in the states, Russian interference wasn't generally understood as a big threat to electoral processes so far that for a minute that is saying. That Britain looked at what Russia. Did our elections in two thousand sixteen and said Holly Clown Horn we need to be taking these Russian cyber attacks seriously Maybe they messed with brexit too late to find out because we were not on guard. If this makes you nervous about the fact that our government is deliberately not putting policies into place to try and prohibit Russia from interfering in the twenty twenty election Maybe you have good cause for for being concert. so so that's the report. It's a terrifying report because it highlights the dangers of complacency so I will link in the show notes. Go ahead and read it We have a handful of listeners who are super far left unlike pro Russian and get on us, but Russia's geostrategic enemy in their led by dictator man. This is something that the U k. they had taken seriously and I wish our government would take seriously and I'm afraid that it's GonNa be, you know like like Britain You know we're GONNA. Wake up and say Oh, man! That was a game changer. Kinda Kinda wish we'd been thinking about that before all the signs are. Are there. Everybody else knows what's going on except US yeah I. I'm just so alarmed by you. Know the fact that when you describe Putin's view of foreign policy, and how zero sum that that's also trump's view of foreign policy networks like the idea, and it's too bad i. hope that mainstream conservative someday will get away from this, but you know I think a pandemic if nothing else should show that we can work together, and actually all benefit rather than it. Being some sort of contest were it's winners and losers. That would be delightful, wouldn't it? Yeah, by and all et? CETERA? Et Cetera all right? Let's get to now our main segments. Long pre segment. That's okay. That's sort of a sort of a bonus sneaking wildcard there for you. Because people have gotta know whether or not their president's across. You're not aware of any contacts during the course of the election. How many times have to answer this question? Can you just? Large extent it's corrupt and it's fake. Asked the president of Finland to question place? Okay what's going on with Flynn? WHAT'S THE UPDATE? I saw you very active on twitter the other day talking about things that the government may have done incorrectly. I can't wait to hear it. Yep, as we mentioned last week in the Michael Flynn case the DC circuit inexplicably to one Naomi row opinion, ruled that men Damus was appropriate and the judge Sullivan was required under rule forty, eight A to dismiss all. All Charges Against Michael Flynn that opinion is crazy and so as a result Judge Sullivan petitioned for a full review by the entire on bank court of the DC circuit to say that that decisions nonsense. Get rid of it and buy a week a week ago yesterday, the the twentieth of July, the government and Michael Flynn's responses were do opposing on Bonk. They are in and I have to tell you. They're terrible. And the the one thing I wanNA flag is the the least terrible argument across these two briefs is the argument.

"But for a lot of conservatives that doesn't and so with Mitt Romney, and with a bunch of other Lindsey Graham, I could make this argument also about because Trump and the Trump administration have done things that conservative Republicans like conservative Republicans are therefore more likely to say things like well, his tax returns, don't matter. However, the immigration restriction ISM has not thoroughly filtered throughout the Republican base, and particularly through Republicans in congress, obviously there are major immigration restriction in congress the Tom's cotton's of the world. But I mean, I think we do have evidence that like Trump can get, you know, Purdue for example on board with his stuff on immigration pretty short. But then there are still host over. Who for whom this is not what this is not their issue? However, it is Trump's issue where and I think that that it presents itself an interesting challenge because this is an issue that if you're like I want tax cuts. I want the embassy the embassy in Israel to be moved. I want to specific things. Trump administration has done those specific things Arrigo. There are certain things like I'm way less eager to see the full Muller report. I'm Wales interested in his tax returns. However. Immigration, restriction, ISM of this extent. Especially with the kind of implication of just ignoring judges or go kind of that general. That's not something that a lot of conservatives whom I talked to that's not one of the transactions. They are willing to really get into the border wall. I think is something that they're willing to get behind to some extent dole. When you start really getting into the brass tacks of how that was going to be paid for or how it would be paid for. Now, you're not getting as much abroad support that you do just for the idea of the border wall with respect to DHS respect to kind of the willingness to ignore the courts, I think that that's one of those moments in which that plays extremely well with Mark Levin and certain conservative commentators were very popular on talk radio. But it does not play as well. With congressional Republicans. For whom they have made the decision that there are certain transactions. They are supportive of with with regard to the. Trump administration and certain transactions. They are not supportive of us. I think that it's true that they would they don't want that. But I think the question is whether they would rather stop it because it appears to me that the that elective Republicans have adopted the Trump administration's narrative of what's currently going on at the border, which is not only that it like is something that needs immediate action. But that the key problem is people coming who don't qualify for asylum, and therefore more needs to be done to stop those people from being able to seek asylum that he's going to require like either the ignoring the court stuff or the, and that doesn't necessarily need to me like mowing people down can just mean, you know, having an artificially like illegally high standard for who is allowed to find asylum application, but the alternative would be to change the law or change regulation. So that it is to actually like bring it in line with what they wanna do that would require congressional action. It is not at all clear that that Republic. Pins are interested in pushing that through as a legislative change or even really talking about it much. So if the choices are, you know, something is done to solve this problem. Not by us or something done to solve this problem by us. I generally bet on members of congress taking the not by us the last thing I want to say on this, right? Is that I don't think we should discount the possibility that Stephen Miller and whatever his friends at the Justice department are are just analytically. Correct. And the homeland security lawyers are not being optimist enough about exactly how crazy the judges. The Trump administration has put on the federal court saw and just think that they're aware that at this point and without getting into a details about the jurisdictional stuff involved here at this point. We have a couple of cases out of the northern district of California that have established that a nonprofit that serves asylum-seekers does have standing to sue over a policy the report. Silence. So when you. Judges. You really would just have to mean like Gorsuch and cavenaugh, right? But I mean, also whoever's going onto the you know, just in terms of the big game..

"But there's you know, the even though he's been more insistent about that. There's there has been kind of this lake layer of okay, we're going to going to let the president do what he say say what he says. And we're just gonna plow along on her own. There is also a great deal of you know, the the there's been a lot of tactical innovation things that have never been tried before. In terms of cracking down on people entering the United States and seeking asylum including not just the widespread use of family separation. But the attempt to legally proclaim that nobody who came between ports of entry could seek asylum in the US, including the policy of making Central American Silom seekers. Returned to Mexico while they're hearings until their hearings came up on the calendar, which just got enjoined by judge last night. Although it doesn't go into effect for injunction doesn't go into effect for few days. So there have been all of these things have kind of been incubated in inside the Trump administration, and there has been reporting that on some of them. There have been fights within the government about how far they can go. And that those fights have have often been between DHS and DOJ, which is, you know, which not only has some role in immigration, but takes a an active role in regulation and in preparing for particularly things right and contrary to what you would think you would assume that like d h s would be the gung ho law enforcement. Let's do this and DOD it'd be like we're the ones who have to stand up in court for it. Let's not reporting his indicated that on a couple of occasions DOJ has been the more aggressive partner in that and DHS has been worried that it won't work, which is in line with what we're hearing. Now that like the D H S lawyer. Were the quote, unquote chicken shit once but does raise the question of whether there are people who are willing to continue to find ways to put the stuff into regulation to write memos. You know, the remain in Mexico policy or the migrant protection protocols of returning people was not officially regulation, but they did put out the agencies that were responsible for implementing did put out memo's. It was fairly..

"Media podcast network. I'm Matthew yglesias Darah Lind. And Jane Costa, I pointed at the wrong people. But you guys can't see that there. I do know which one is which we've been working together a long time. This is definitely we are off to a great start here just off an airplane. Jerry's right right in the city of airplane. We were going to talk about selling Nells. But while she was traveling Trump seems to have set into motion a plan to kind of burn DAS leadership to the emotion plan is a slight exaggeration. I believe. Okay. So what happened? So first cures to Nielsen. No, this is where I think everyone's missing it on Thursday night. Trump like very late at night sent a letter to congress saying that he was withdrawing the nomination of the dude who was who is currently I think still acting head of immigration and customs enforcement ice. He had been like he'd been doing the Trump thing where Trump nominated him the acting director and then like formally submitted the nomination to be permanent director, and he'd had a vote in one of the committees. That was supposed to approve nomination got approved his vote got deferred and the other committee like that. Earlier that day, and then Trump suddenly rescinded the nomination, and like honest to goodness. It was reportedly so abrupt decision that DA just didn't know about it. One DHS official told a reporter that it had been a paperwork error because like no one knew why this had happened and Trump on Friday morning confirmed that it was not in fact, a paperwork error that that he was that he had withdrawn nomination. And it's and said it was because we're going in a quote tougher direction close, quote, which the two data points of he didn't tell people at DHS he was doing this. And he said he was doing this to go in a tougher direction. Generally when you're doing this as a policy decision, you communicate that to the other people who are making that policy. So that was a sign that like not always well in Trump world when it came to. I mean, obviously, the president is engaging in another round of his continued fixation with the border. He as we've said on this podcast before there really are unprecedented numbers of families. Come. Into the United States. There has been a precipitous increase in people crossing you molest few months and Trump has started saying publicly like, you know, we shouldn't let anybody and we should say we're full they should go back. And apparently, this is also spread to his kind of private assessment of whether the people he's appointed are doing the right things. So that brings us to Sunday night when his secretary Christian Nielsen who had been in the position for a little bit over. Well, she was nominated choose confirmed in late twenty seventeen and had been on the rocks. A couple of times since then but formally submitted her resignation, and it soon became clear because her people were leaking to the press that that was not her decision. And then do we know like why? So wouldn't Mattis left? You know, there were various things you could write the whole story tensions building baba. But also was like this specific Syria. Our guest, right. When Jeff Sessions left, of course, that was a whole we died lives. The new Jeff Sessions was going to leave like ages before Jeff Sessions, actually left. Right, right. So there are three levels to this. The first is just kind of generally that you know, we knew in the past that Donald Trump did not think that Christian Nelson was doing enough. Like there was a story in may twenty eighteen about him yelling at her at a cabinet meeting lake really intensely for a very long time about why she didn't close the border. There is a more specific version of that that we're beginning to get the details field in of of there's some number of things that Donald Trump wants done or that Stephen Miller wants done that Nielsen said were illegal or would be disastrous, which is why the general counsel of GHS is either. And this is where my just having gotten off a plane is not helpful..
