Fresh update on "doj" discussed on Opening Arguments

"History? You know, isn't that amazing? It's such a deadbeat. You can't even rely on getting paid for it. I think we have every reason to think that people didn't get paid while he was the president. But yeah, these arguments are terrible and meritless. The notable thing about this lawsuit and by the way, if you've got QAnon members that are through the looking glass that are part for some reason of your circle of friends or family or whatever, we're going to link to the complaint in the show notes. Do a control F in this document for the word former and you will see it describe Donald Trump as the former president of the United States on 9 separate occasions. So if you have somebody that is holding out and Trump has been very, very cagey about this, right? Not conceding that he's not still secretly the president under blah, blah, blah. Look, I agree. I shouldn't have to be making a big deal out of this. Yeah. You know? Removed from office 9 months ago, this shouldn't be news. But if you have people who, you know, are drinking the Kool-Aid about how he's still secretly the shadow president. How about paragraph 20? This is the first paragraph describing the parties. This is written by Donald Trump's lawyer and it says pike Jesse been all. Quote, plaintiff Donald J Trump is the 45th president of the United States. President Trump brings the suit solely in his official capacity, by the way, there is not an official capacity as a former president under the presidential record keeping act. Associated regulations, the executive order, the declaratory judgment act and the constitution of the United States. So that's not a thing, but he does identify himself as the former president and in fact he is. So you can look forward to this lawsuit, go on a big fat know where the House select committee to investigate the one 6 insurrection is going to move to dismiss. And I think that I think that motion to dismiss will be granted. I think it won't matter because this court is not going to grant injunctive relief. And so those records are going to get turned over by the archivist in the next couple of weeks. So again, more stuff that it's a good thing I'll be I'll be on the ground and ready to parse through and read some documents. And then while we're in, I guess, the kind of updates breaking news section here, Andrew, I know there was some just hot off the presses updates on SB 8. Yeah, so the Texas law that effectively bans abortion after 6 weeks. Did exactly what we told you was going to happen on the show. It went to the 5th circuit. The 5th circuit very, very conservative heavily anti abortion circuit two one decision decided to stay the lower court's injunction, which means that SBA went back into effect after having been enjoined for all of a couple of days. And as we predicted, that means that the Department of Justice has moved on the Supreme Court shadow docket for relief from the Supreme Court of the United States. We have, and again, I've already assessed this Supreme Court is so partisan and it's the shadow docket that can very easily just issue a one line per curium opinion. And I think that that's what they're going to do. I think what is telling here is, as of it was about 20 minutes before we were scheduled to record this, we got a copy of the state of Texas opposition to that application to vacate the 5th circuit stay and reinstate the injunction. And what's really interesting, none of the rest, it's 50 pages of right wing garbage. What is very interesting is the position that the state of Texas. So this is in the name of attorney general Ken Paxton. The position that the state of Texas has now articulated in a brief to the Supreme Court is as follows and to set this up, I need to tell you that part of the relief that the Department of Justice asked for was, hey, reverse the 5th circuit. Vacate the stay, put the lower courts injunction back in place. But if you don't do that Supreme Court, what you should do is immediately take this case up on the merits bypassing the lower court's opinion. And you may recall that the Trump administration used this procedure very, very rare procedure, but use that procedure multiple times throughout the past four years. And the Supreme Court, in fact, granted it with more frequency in the Trump administration than in the past 50 years. So the DOJ I don't know. You're going to lose anyway, so you might as well try everything you can. Also requested bypass Saoirse aurorae. In opposing that the state of Texas says as follows and this is page 48 to 49 of the brief. It says, we oppose bypass or Shirai, you should let the 5th circuit weigh in. You should give this all the time in the world, you know, all the law takes effect. And then it says the federal government criticized Texas for not forthrightly asking the court to revisit its decisions. According to the appellate brief. Texas has done so now, despite the court's hope that its decision in Casey would call the contending sides of a national controversy to end their national division by accepting a common mandate rooted in the constitution, abortion remains a divisive issue. There will always be those who deem abortion, nothing short of an act of violence against human life. Consequently, there will always be states who seek to protect unborn life through their laws, blah, blah blah blah. So here's the punchline. If the court decides to construe the federal government's application as a cert petition, it may also construe this response as a conditional cross petition on the question of whether the constitution recognizes and protects a right to abortion and whether the court should reconsider its decisions in roe V wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey. So I think he got that, but let me put that in English..

Fresh update on "doj" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts

"An institution worth cherishing Mark Davis and for Dennis, Dennis is back tomorrow, getting ready to go to your calls and talk about stuff I brought up, see what things are. You want to bring up in the midst of just the passing parade, this passing disaster. And it's funny because it's one party rule, right? Democrat house Democrat Senate Democrat president. You could ostensibly say things could not be worse. And yet, Republicans unifying and preventing the nationalization of our election rules, it is a victory. Because on the supposed auspice on the supposed basis of voting rights or expanding rights to people and blah blah blah, because this just in, anybody can vote without difficulty. The notion that it's hard to vote is poisonous mythology, and Republicans stood firm stood together were not even a majority and pulled off a huge victory against these people just yesterday. So hang tough man hang tough. I'll tell you who's hanging tough with us, especially in view of Merrick Garland being at the House committee today. The attorney general issued this startling and unprecedented directive to the FBI and the Justice Department thing I was talking about just in the last segment to investigate parents all over America. Showing up at local school board meetings to voice their concerns over CRT nonsense. And various things being force fed to public school students on a political motive, and parents got mad. And they got mad in person, they got mad here on talk shows like this because the DOJ would be treating parents as domestic terrorists. So alliance defending freedom is there, they're not going to stand for any of this. They're not going to stand for parents free speech rights being abused. Here is ADF senior counsel, John burch, saying that nothing like this attack on parents has ever happened before in our country. Worse than anything that we've seen in a long time. And you can be sure that if they do come forward and they persecute and prosecute parents who are simply doing their job to make sure that their kids are going to be well taken care of at school and not influenced by ideology, which is going to harm them, then we're going to be there to defend those parents. That is exactly what ADF does every day and they can not do it without you and me. They can.

"And so Peter doocy one of the few journalists journalists in this country He's at The White House of course and he goes back and forth with Psaki who's nothing more than a flim flam propagandist Cut 16 go Why did the president break his promise not to enter into any decisions about what cases the Justice Department should bring and offering How did he break his promise Well he was asked if the DOJ should cross a few people who divide January 6th committee subpoenas and did not say I let Justice Department decide he said yes Well let me reiterate and I put out a statement also on Friday night to this on this Where I conveyed clearly that won the president continues to believe that January 6th was one of the darkest days in our democracy He also continues to believe that the Department of Justice has the purview and independence to make decisions about prosecutions And that is continues to be his view and that it continues to be how he is He will govern You say that that is his view but that is not what he said I just conveyed what his view is And that is also how he is operated how he is governed and how he will continue to govern And I think that's what's important for people to watch So then what's changed since last year when he said I will not do what this president former president Trump does and use the Justice Department is my vehicle to insist that something happened Well since you give me the opportunity here president former president Trump used his office to incite an insurrection He put political pressure on To propagate lies about the election to the point where they threatened to resign en masse I think there's hardly a comparison there He said President Biden said the Justice Department in my administration will be totally independent of me And he said he would not have you know what's good about this he is not distracted Have you noticed that mister reducer He doesn't bite that hook No no no no he stays laser

General of the united states has now decreed or announced. I said well. I usually am not surprised to shocked. But what is it. The justice department last evening has now announced that they are going to use government power to go after parents that are challenging their school boards. Now remember this. All started because this whole narrative all started because the national school board association viola garcia specifically called on the biden regime to start labeling parents speaking out of school board meetings as domestic terrorist. He said that on cnn. I'm gonna play that tape and just a little bit. So the justice department pressured by the national school board association of america responds by saying miss citing an increase in harassment. Intimidation and threats. Okay let's go through those three different things intimidation. Let's start with harassment. What is the definition of harassment. Exactly asking questions showing up the school board meetings writing comments someone's facebook feed number two intimidation what is intimidation. Exactly where in the united states. Federal criminal code is illegal to harass and intimidate somebody under their definition there is their definition of harassment intimidation showing up and actually showing the curriculum that the school boards have been passing the graphic pornographic material that has been implemented for example. Let's play cut thirty two. We have cut thirty to cut thirty. Two stacey langston. This is just one example. We have played dozens and dozens and dozens of these examples over the last couple months. I myself have showed up at school. Board meetings am i guilty of intimidation harassment for speaking and challenging power. Uncut cut thirty two. I want you to listen to this. Is this now. The fbi is new definition of domestic terrorism. Like thirty two. Both books describe different ax. One book describes a fourth grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male.

Now that's stacey langton who says basically in the curriculum is for the graphic material. But i shouldn't apologize because i didn't say it. That's what's in your children's textbooks. I don't. I don't have to apologize for that. Some people send us emails. Charlie why are you planning these tapes so terrible. it's what children are learning exposing. Something actually can have a moral good which it has here so stacey langston is she intimidating harassing her school board.

People were sending people everywhere to, uh, that guy Corey to the media to the FBI said Donald Trump collude with the Russians and they were propagating to myths. The Alpha Bank connection. And the PP tape Oaks right, and it doesn't seem that it really got any traction because it appears the FBI knew that these people were working for the Clinton campaign. That is, until Sussman comes in in September. The lawyer and claims otherwise am I am I reading that right? I think you're reading it Absolutely correct. And it's the reason assessment was indicted because he flat out lied to the FBI. He didn't say who he was working for. But see, this is all so convoluted and because you and I covered this I mean, you were covering it just as much shine shine, Solomon and I and, of course, Mark Levin and others who were focused on this. We knew that senior membership of the FBI, the senior leadership positions, Andy McCabe, James Comey, of course, Uh, James Clapper, who was outside the FBI and John Brennan with the CIA. Those people in particular were well aware. Were well aware of what was going on and what was happening the whole time. I believe me, but there was so much cover up for the cover up and you brought up something that was so important on your shelf and unfiltered when we were on together, and this is the fact that the bureaucracy itself The swamp itself just became a machine that was working on behalf of the Clintons and working on behalf of the DNC. They already had everybody in place. They didn't have to worry about holding someone accountable because the only people that could be held accountable was by the DOJ. But if the DOJ was sold out, and we know there were people inside the DOJ that were sold out And who was going to hold them accountable. They could just continue to lie about it and continue to propagate and continue to wag the dog. You know, all of these lies all this disinformation. Uh huh.

Clinton-Linked Lawyer Charged for Lying in Trump-Russia Origins Probe

"Hillary Clinton want to set up Donald Trump for the fake Russian collusion thing Big break on Friday. Obviously, one of the lawyers involved in this propagating this collusion fairytale working with the Clintons gets indicted. Big story. Now we start to see what happened. It's clear the FBI was not fooled by the Russian collusion that they were part of it. They were just looking for someone to walk into their office who was credible enough that they could put the information down in a charging document or a fighter application and say, Hey, we heard this from Joey Bag of Donuts. He's credible. And what's the problem? The people who kept coming into the office in New York and London and elsewhere and saying, Hey, got information on these trump guys in the Russians all kept saying, Oh, and by the way, we're working with Hillary Clinton. Now I have no doubt the FBI knew that. But the FBI can't tell that to a judge, Judge judge Bag of doughnuts. We've got an affluent walking in here and excuse me in Africa, and he had a subject walk in and say he was working for Hillary Clinton. They don't like Donald Trump. He's colluding with the Russians. The judge would have laughed him out. So somehow it gets back to the Hillary Clinton team. Hey, listen. You gotta get somebody with bona fide. He's incredibility to go into the FBI telling this information even though it's fake and say, Hey, we're not working with anyone Just doing this out of the kindness of our hearts so we could swear to it. Is everybody digging, Jim? Is this making sense? Picking up what I'm putting down? So how do I know this folks Because the evidence is everywhere. So DOJ hears their release their indictment from last week of this lawyer, Michael Sussman, Right, pay very close attention to these dates. As alleged in the indictment on September 19th Michael Sussman met with FBI general counsel uh, in in Washington. Sussman had requested the meeting to provide the general counsel with certain data files and white papers that allegedly demonstrated covert communications channel between Trump and this Russian bank. Alfa Bank. It was all made up, folks. Assessment. This is the key line who had previously represented the DNC in connection with the Khyber, A cyber hack falsely stated to the FBI general counsel that he was not bringing these allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client. Then they don't wait. Where's the Kenny Belt? There? It is. The Kenny Bell gift from Kenny. He's a podcast listener. That's the souls. That's the story. Finally, in sun, September, mid September, September, 19th someone walks into the FBI who at least claims to not have any of these conflicts. Now the FBI is I go. We got it out. This is gonna be so great. Now we can go to a judge and say we want to spy on Trump and we could say we got information from this guy. Sussman and Sussman says he's not working for anybody. Isn't this so wonderful? Well, The problem is That John Dorms alleging that he was working for someone the entire time he was working with the Hillary Clinton

Two Federal Judges Concerned How Some Are Charged on Jan. 6 Events

"Even at two federal judges, truly both appointed by Obama, who raised concerns about the way certain people are being charged. They've raised the question like wait a minute. You're charging people for disrupting Congress. When in fact, we've had people disrupt Congress. You hit him with a misdemeanor. You let them go. You're charging these people with felonies if they don't plead to to an offense that you demand And they're starting and they're saying What is that? Based on? You've heard that too, right? I have. So you're referring to Judge Moss and Judge Maeda? Um Judge Moss called the obstruction of official proceeding felony, which this DOJ has slapped on at least 200 cases. To turn Trump supporters and two convicted felons. It's never been used in this way before the judges know it. The government knows it. The defense lawyers certainly know it. And so both of those lawyers have raised concern. Judge Moss said. It has a constitutional staginess problem. There is a motion in the oath Keepers case. Motion to dismiss and judge made A is considering that now and should make a ruling should issue some ruling on that next month. Um, but again, Philip bump. Do you even know what the obstruction of an official proceeding charge is its origination, which was a post and run law. That was supposed to stop and the interference and congressional investigations, not the certification of the Electoral College. So you know, these are the things that Mr Bump does not stay awake at

Justice Dept. Seeks Emergency Order to Block Texas Abortion Law

"The biden administration is taking emergency action to try to stop a new texas law that bans most abortions in that state in a new. Filing the justice department is asking federal judge for a restraining order to temporarily blocked the law while a larger legal challenge. Plays out npr. Sarah mccamman has more the latest action by the justice. Department comes days after the doj sued the state of texas over the law known as sp eight it allows individuals to file lawsuits worth tens of thousands of dollars against anyone involved in helping a patient get an abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy in a new emergency motion. The department says that the clear purpose of the law is to quote deny women rights guaranteed to them by the us constitution while attempting to evade judicial review. The us supreme court allowed it to take effect on september first despite legal challenges from reproductive rights groups but did not weigh in on the constitutional issues raised by the law. The case is likely to end up before the supreme court again

The Hidden Hand of the Chinese Communist Party Over Washington, DC

"The only peer the only peer or near pay a threat that america faces at a strategic level is communist china. I know your your ambit isn't the broad scope of national security but given that you focus on china day in day out. Would you put it in that. Category of mir pir competitor. I think they're they are an enemy. I mean point blank. And i think about the role of pair. Oh yes certainly. But i think what's so interesting and what we've really dug into it. The national polls is how. The chinese communist party has really kind of crafted the narrative about their rise in the united states. So we're talking about For example trips that have been organized by the china united states exchange foundation which is one of these many many many foreign agents that operate in the united states. It's essentially funded by the chinese communist party. It's part of what's called the united front which is a multibillion dollar effort that that's linked to china's military who's really sole goal is to compromise american elites and get them to push policies that china support so. I always joke. It's hunter biden except the people don't get caught and so much of this group's efforts was actually paying for journalists from every mainstream media outlet washington post new york times You name it. Msnbc literally all you can go check out the story. Every single media taking his journalists on trips overseas to china and upon return when you read the documents that these journalists were forced to basically outline what they were doing they had to provide favourable coverage of the chinese communist party and what they were doing in the united states and more broadly what that effort represents and keep in mind. There's over two hundred fifty registered foreign agents on behalf of the chinese communist party in the united states right now. The people who are formally registered the doj to lobby on behalf of china. Yeah and you know part of it. Is that these. People have set out to endeavour to change america's perception of china. And they kinda wanna frame it in the context of oh well doing business with china's great the two most powerful countries. We need to work together. It's just the way the world But i also think it's important. They also set out endeavor. The you to change the perception of how americans view america. And i think we've done similar reporting actually believe it or not on how the same group. The china united states exchange foundation. Whose sole goal is to get american league's american journalists types really echo the claims of beijing and the american media landscape. They're actually longtime partners of the talk group that sued the trump administration For trying to ban critical race theory from the federal government. So there's just you know you're asking how i kind of got into this and that's kind of the broader story when i really started looking into it and realizing the extent kind of the hidden hand that the chinese communist party has over dc but more. Broadly the united states and really frankly the whole western elites fear. You can't unseat it

Which is mike pence right We know that generous jobs. Riders shouted hang mike pence We know that they storm the capital because they wanted to stop mike pence from doing what he was doing. And what was that. He was just reading out basically Which electors would be assigned to which candidate you know the results in each state. And then congress was gonna vote on it and one thing that geoffrey clark really wanted mike pence to do Was to refuse to acknowledge the results from states like georgia and according to clark and his allies. Mike pence should have said. Hey i know that the results in front of me. Say that that the joe biden one georgia but in my independent determination based on irregularities and investigations and the state legislatures actions i am determining that donald trump actually one georgia. And i guess that's not going to happen. In twenty twenty four because calmly harris is presumably still going to be vice president but it could definitely happen if republicans win in two thousand twenty four and then run again in two thousand twenty eight. There has now been a precedent where a considerable number of conservative lawyers argue that the vice president can do this and we saw them try to lay the groundwork for it for many weeks. They ended up failing but the came pretty close. I mean mike pence only announced that he wasn't going to do this minutes before he walked onto the floor of congress. This was sort of lost in the excitement and terror of january six but he released this letter right before. Going out there to say oh by the way. i'm not going to throw the election to donald trump. That's pretty close in my estimation and it suggests that if if these guys had pulled different levers they might have been able to get there they know which levers to pull in the future and they again are.

"Joyce i'm gonna put a tweet of yours from today and then have you expound further you write you wrote the fact that doj turned these notes over to the house oversight committee the type of internal product. They typically fight to protect suggests that they believe this is very serious potentially potentially even criminal conduct talk further about that so doj typically will hold close any of its internal work product particularly notes that a senior official might take during a phone call. That's not something. Doj turns over without a fight but in this case they've made a bold statement indicating that they believe the events here are important and this information is so critical that they're going to permit former trump administration. Folks to give unrestricted testimony. I take that to mean that. They're not going to exert any kind of executive privilege and also they're turning over the physical documents this means. This is serious stuff whether it's criminal or not requires additional investigation but certainly that investigation is merited enjoys it. Is this information relevant to what's happening down. In georgia in the investigation the fulton county criminal probe into that phone call in which trump tried to pressure the georgia secretary of state referenced. Burger too. I think is fine me. Ten thousand seven hundred eighty votes. Jonathan the interplay between these two events is pretty interesting and let me talk about one way that it might be significant. Prosecutors worry a lot about proving defendants intent was he just sort of bumbling in saying stuff or was there actually a cohesive plan to overturn the results of a legitimate election. And something that makes it more likely that it was intentional rather than an accident or stumbling is if there's evidence of a repeated course of conduct in actually admissible evidence that you can put in say georgia were to indict. Prosecutors could very likely offer evidence of other similar related courses of conduct like this pressure that trump tried to bring to bear on the justice department to show that it wasn't a mistake unintentional but rather there was an intentional effort to subvert the election in georgia congressman swallow. Well considering you've been an impeachment manager and devised questions to ask witnesses. What kinds of questions should investigators be asking. Now we're at this point. It really trying to understand what donald trump and those around him new as to. Who was going to show up on january six mo brooks who you referenced earlier. He admitted this week that he was wearing body armor when he gave inciting remarks just outside of the white house. So what did he know that led him to wear body armor. What donald trump no about who was showing up and then of course what decisions that you make to protect the capital. What decisions that he not make. That could have protected the capital. I think that will be incredibly helpful for us as we try and ensure that we again have a peaceful transition of power in this country. One that we did not have an twenty twenty one transition as we go into the next presidential election comes. Swallow one more question to you. I think you alluded to this earlier. But how concerned are you that we really. We dodged a bullet in twenty twenty in that we had responsible people who were being pressured by the president of the united states members of his own party. Who did not bend to his will and did not subvert the constitution of the united states. How concerned are you that that kind of withstand withstanding pressure won't hold in two thousand twenty two. The midterm elections. Jonathan is is. I and my colleagues were running from the floor through an evacuation route. That the thought going through my mind was it can't end this way that this cannot be how democracy dies and i thought that's what was going to happen on january six and i would say at best it's on life support right now because nothing has changed. Donald trump is telling people. He's coming back in august mark meadows. Set some pretty disturbing things today about a cabinet meeting. They had plans. They have that they're going to announce soon i mean he's still assembling a shadow cabinet It sounds like and we still don't have the security posture at the capital. That we need to make sure that we could protect you. Know a future coup attempt. And so i am very very concerned in the best thing to knock late against. That would be the unity of republicans and democrats really really debunking. The big lie acknowledging. Joe biden is president and then putting in place laws so that this won't happen again otherwise again. We're just we're close to flat line right now for our democracy and on that note. We're gonna have to their congressman. Eric swallow enjoys fans. Thank you both for joining us tonight..

"Which would hurt biden's chances. In the primary there it was in black and white in the transcript of that phone call. I would like you to do us a favor. Though the man who listened in on that phone call to take notes for the white house was a us army. Lieutenant colonel. this man alexander vitamin. I should tell you that colonel vitamin will be a guest on the show on monday night looking forward to that. You don't wanna miss it then may just told. Cbs news that. After donald trump's infamous phone call with ukraine. He immediately went to speak with his brother who also worked in the white house. He said he told his brother quote. If what i'm about to tell you becomes public the president will be impeached. And that of course is exactly what happened. Donald trump was impeached for pressuring ukraine into digging up dirt on his political opponent. And i know the story is not so distant but it's important context for this moment that we're in right now. It reminds us that donald trump's obsession with staying in power and winning reelection and the dramatic lengths to which he was willing to go to stay president. It all started way way before anyone cast a ballot last november. But of course that was just the start after joe biden actually won the twenty twenty election. Donald trump's obsession with joe biden morphed into a crusade to de-legitimize the results of that election and part of that crusade led to an insurrection attempt on the united states capitol and temp which is now being investigated by congress. Today the house select committee investigating the january. Six attack held a meeting behind closed. Doors there first gathering after this week's emotional hearing with law enforcement officers were attacked at the capitol on january six. The chairman of the committee congressman. Bennie thompson told reporters today that the committee will soon be sending subpoenas as part of their inquiry. But that's not the only investigation going on in congress right now. That could shed light on donald trump's efforts to overturn the election. We know another part of the former president. Scheme to overturn. The election was centered around the justice. Department to wield the power of the doj to somehow swing the results in trump's favor there were reports that trump considered ousting his acting attorney general and replacing him with one who would push his baseless claims about election fraud trump and his chief of staff stovepipe their election fraud claims right to the doj glee doj leadership demanding that the department investigate the fraud to bijal to de-legitimize. Joe biden's win just this week. We learned just how extensive this pressure campaign was washington post reporter that trump's called his acting attorney general. Jeffrey rosen almost every day about the so-called fraud in the aftermath of the election. the attorney general's top aide took notes. About what the former president said on those phone calls for anyone trying to get to the bottom of whether or not donald trump was trying to improperly weaponize the justice department to help him stay in power it would be important to know exactly what was said on those calls and today we found out the new york times it was the first to report today on the contents of those notes about donald trump's calls to the attorney general after the election according to the times donald trump called his attorney general as well as his deputy on december twenty seven th of last year to ask him about claims of voter fraud that doj had disproved that deputy attorney general told the former president that the justice had no power to overturn and election to which donald trump replied quote. Just say that. The election was corrupt. And leave the rest to me. Just say the election was corrupt. And leave the rest to me. Since viewer times. I broke the story this afternoon. These handwritten notes have now been made public and turned over to congress as part of a separate investigation into the former president's conduct after the election. So here we go joining us now. Katie benner who covers the justice department for the new york times. She's been way ahead of everyone else's reporting on donald trump's post election attempt to pressure the justice department. She was the first to report on these documents from the house. Oversight committee today katie. Good evening to see my friend. It would seem that the nine pages of handwritten notes released today are not the only notes taken by doj officials that are relevant to a house. Oversight committee investigation. It's a committee that is likely to receive more as it investigates. The trumps trump administration's efforts to reverse the election. What's the picture as you have it now. I think what we need to remember. Is that those committees including the house oversight committee and the senate judiciary committee. They've been asking the justice department for documents in the testimony of former officials. Basically since the beginning of this year the justice department began the process of handing over documents a few months ago. This is sort of the latest batch and just now the justice department said former officials are allowed to testify. And they're not going to vote executive privilege which means that congress now has far more access to information than ever had during the trump administration about the former president's behavior. We're going to see the justice department allow information to flow everybody to see congress to press as hard as it can to get everything it can documents and testimony. The language used by donald trump in his phone call to justice department had similarities to the language that donald trump used in his phone call with the president The president of ukraine. I'm going to read you. What he said to the call with zielinski. I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and ukraine knows a lot about it. I'd like you to have the attorney. General call your people. And i would like you to get to the bottom of it. There's a lot of talk about biden's son that biden. Stop the prosecution and a lot of people wanna find out about about that so whatever you can do with the attorney. General would be great. Then he calls an leans on the attorney general of the united states. The acting attorney general of the united states. Just come up and find some fraud. I'll take care of it from there. Do we know from your notes. what happens. What trump means by. I'll take care of after that. You know he says. I'll take care of it. Himself and our congressman with note say republicans in congress who is ally so presumably they would use that statement from the justice department as a cudgel to both attack joe biden to also real seeds of doubt.

It's very hard to hire one hundred engineers for a project and not find out about it. The way steve jobs figured out that google was going to watch chrome the chrome browser. Was they were interviewing safari team members the safari browser obviously by apple. So when you start recruiting in earnest for a project. That's when the stuff leaks because people will get interviewed don't sign. Nda's they might use a handshake agreement to not talk about it. But they'll say get some currency out of it. Sure some people will leak it. And that's how a lot of big projects like a are at apple as well. The reason people know there's a lot going are with a our cars and previously the watches because they were hiring tons of people to work on wearables to work on cars into on self driving and mobility but according to an article by coined. His desk speculating on bitcoin. Sunday run up. Here's the quote experts say short-squeeze of heavily leveraged traders may have added to upper pressure on prices. Okay so hearing about this. This is called defy decentralized. Finance people are taking their crypto holdings. And they're getting levered against him. What does that mean. They're getting alone just like High net worth individuals might able to have the had one hundred million dollars in facebook shares. They might be able to borrow a fifty percent of that as alone and banks typically provide the rich folks. Now it's coming down to anybody with crypto. You can borrow against your crypto but if the price changes radically either way if you're shorting if you're long whatever you make liquidated so supposedly a lot of people got liquidated so the prevailing theory amongst pro. Bitcoin people i think is the rumors of amazon which would be in the category of tesla buying a bunch of bitcoin. Just an incredible incredible. Check box to get amazon onboard. The bitcoin train but that turned out to be false. That think it's false because we're not hearing any jobs being posted about this or you know a bunch of people being recruited.

You know maybe got some people off the fence which then created the short stories if that makes sense but the pro pickling crowd is also i think downplaying the tethered doj prob-. I could see the tether doj pro being leaked yesterday amongst people who are insiders like let's say exchanges and then if you are on these exchanges especially offshore ones that use a tether if you saw people cashing in their tether for bitcoin. Which would be the smart thing to do if you think tether is going to collapse or they might get arrested etc and it all gets frozen. Will you would want to not have your money frozen because it could be frozen for five or ten years just like when poker sites assets got seized. You know you're you're just out of luck for years. You eventually were able to claim that you had some assets in there but you have to jump through hoops so any person hearing my voice right now who owns tether. And who's been listening for. The last month must be trying to get outta tether and move their tether into bitcoin or a theory you do not get the stability or supposed stability of a stable coin but you do have something that you can download and put it into your own wallet. Put in cold storage and get off of these crazy Exchanges that could also get seized. Tether could get shut down and these exchanges can get seized and everybody could lose everything where people can abscond with your money so you gotta get your coins into a wallet into cold storage off of these services unless it's maybe coin base or something that runs in the west and you feel a little bit more secure in so I think that is what we're looking at here is maybe some of that and it could be a combination of all of these things. Short-squeeze amazon rumors. Doj rumors tether tether people move into bitcoin. And you get this super storm. Dennis vinokourov hopefully pronouncing your name correct. Dennis is the head of research at synergy. Jia capital synergy capital He said that tether news is less of a market negative because it is an investigation into executives.

"Of firms that help you with all those things alex. This deal was first announced. In march of twenty twenty under the trump administration and there were antitrust concerns back then led to an investigation. Then last month the doj of the biden administration filed a suit. What are their objections to this. Merger they say it will just create a brokerage. That's too big and will narrow the choices for companies and that will make you know be anticompetitive. So basically they'll be too few players out there advising companies on their insurance choices and and on the other services that these companies offer. What did the company say about those objections. And what are they saying now about their reasoning for scrapping the deal. Well i mean. They totally disagreed with the department of justice. They felt that they were going to be able to offer. You know bigger and better services through scale and through a wider network and this has been going on for a while and they've been hearing these objections not just from the department of justice but also the european union regulator and in response to those the companies have sold off bits of their businesses in order to have their be less overlap in what they do as way to address those antitrust concerns but the doj in the end felt that they had not done enough and that there was not a obvious remedy here that the companies were willing to undertake in order to make the deal pass. Muster didn't the companies also say basically that antitrust regulators didn't know their business. Yeah i mean essentially yeah. They were pretty dismissive of the doj calling them out of step and saying that they thought that they could have won in court but the judge in the case had set the court hearing for so long in the future. That for deal. That's already been sitting around. It was launched just as the pandemic started a lot of people thought back then it would never get done because the pandemic but they said no. No no we're gonna keep going. They went through it. And then this case cups and then the judge says well. I'm not gonna listen to you guys for months and months and they decided that it wouldn't work alex the european union approved of the deal. Why did it have a different perspective than us. Regulators part of it is the regulators look at their market so the european union regulator felt that the divestments that the companies made were enough to address the competitive concerns in europe in the european union. You know they. They felt that there were local factors. That made this deal passable whereas the department of justice took a different line. They felt that in the us where these to operate Against competitors like marsh and others. That just wouldn't have been enough players to provide the competition needed for the marketplace. The biden administration has signaled a tough antitrust stance. What does this mean for the future of such corporate mergers. I think this is a very big deal and it's being very closely followed. This was the first big case at the biden administration took on and said we're going to try to block this deal. We're gonna go to court and they succeeded so that's gonna probably embolden. Their strategy and the bite administration has been very clear that they want to take a muscular stance on antitrust appointed some people who are very sharp critics of companies getting bigger and bigger and bigger. And you know President biden had this executive order the other week those broad-ranging and all sorts of things but among the things that he asked for was specifically for the justice department to re look at their antitrust policy. And so it's pretty clear that this is probably the beginning of a whole bunch of actions that the biden administration may take and also be a warning sign to companies out. There that are thinking about doing deals in the calculus has now changed..

"It's like a tolerable thing. I mean only got all these cases. And i see the federal government protecting its power lake making it clear that they can issue secret legal memos and make sure that our leader is not exposed legally or financially for his actions in office. It feels a little bit like the government operating the way corporation. Might and i wondered if you saw it that way to do i think the way garland his defenders would put it would be slightly different. Let me try to put. Actually my best face on what they have done. I think what they would say. Look the department of justice has institutional interest long term institutional interests. It's not good for the public. If in our society of ministration is changing positions from presidency presidency. The principal value garlan justice department are concerned with the rule of law quote unquote rule of law and the law is a great thing. It's extraordinarily work style. What is it what will your this is. That is the question. What does it mean. And what is if you tip. Basically what it means. At least the way we use it in our political system in his In the history of the term in our society is that basically means the law should apply in a general way lachey publicly accessible. Meaning we all know what the lie is and it applies to everyone regardless of their individual characteristics so the fact that you are person on the street or person beyond the street you know the jaywalking rules apply to you. Respective of you know what your name is what you look like. And not the opposite of the argument. They're making though in some of these cases which is the law doesn't apply to us because it's the president and he can't defame someone government can't defame someone that is exactly right which is one reason why depends so bad mix because on that very account of what the rule of law doing here right It has a superficial appeal so garland sang. Look i've looked at the law. We took a hard look at the law and This is ordinarily the way you know it would be handled. But the problem is the rule of law is not the only the ideal and you know value that our political and social culture tribes uphold their sometimes competing conflicting values including justice including equality. You can have laws and activities that comply with the rule of law on the sort of sketchy account that i provided one i think is consistent with how garland thinks about it that are unjust laws. These are there other principles at stake in this case. Not dust rule of law which is why find his defensive. This decision in Frankly contin indication will slightly maddening at this point. I say that if someone who feels strongly about it's a lot about i've written about.

"It might be a lotta salacious stuff and answering it. I think would still be part of the presence job. I think that's right. So kind of shockingly. The order issued by judge kaplan said. Yeah but the westfall act doesn't apply to the president and then trump obviously immediately appealed that order to the second circuit this is an authorized interlocutory appeal and the first draft of the brief on appeal was filed by william bars department. Adjusters filed on january fifteenth. Twenty twenty one and five days before biden. Sworn in so trump is still in office. Bar is still attorney. General and it is signed off on by jennifer dickey acting assistant attorney general so pan joshi the senior counsel to the assistant attorney general and then three line. Doj attorneys mark. Freeman mark stern. Josh saltzman egion. Carol files her opposition. On april sixteenth. Two thousand twenty one and so the question. That people were looking for was okay. This is now the first foray into this lawsuit by garland's doj. Are they going to endorse the same position. That trump took in january. And the first thing. I need to tell you is this brief was written by the exact same three lawyers right. They're still at doj they're just career lawyers so all the one hand right like before i get into the analysis the most this could tell you is the guys who wrote a brief back. January wrote a reply brief reiterating those positions in in june not to surprise But freeman stern saltzman on the also on the briefs also at doj. And as we've talked about here. I've talked about on on clinton forty five like there has been a ton of of house cleaning over at the doj right. So i would say if somebody is still around that presumptively. They're they're probably just a good institutional soldier so let's take a look at the arguments that they do make each in carol's arguments in her brief. Were number one again. The federal tort claims act does not cover the president at all and then to. If it does apply defaming a rape victim isn't within the scope of your employment. Doj's response is almost entirely focused on that first question right to say yes. The federal tort claims act does cover the president at and again right which will probably help biden in relapse. -olutely helped by for precisely the reasons that you just described and then their argument and this is super narrow right like the say like a weather that the the the particular action. What they say is to figure out whether something is within the scope of your employment. You don't look to the act itself you look to the type of action and there's a kind of what i was saying. Yeah it's exactly what k- right and again you know. Then there's the reference to the ballenger case you know we've already talked about that at at some length and look i think it is really and i think in carols lawyers know that we've talked about. Robert kaplan lead counsel. She is really really good at what she does. And i think she knows that. If you get to the scope arguments you probably lose so the question is should we be surprised. And or should we want the department of justice to litigate that the president is covered by the federal claims. Act and i think the answer to that is just is is a to both questions is yes right bernie. Sanders is doj right warrants doj. Just forget now. You know where. It's like. Fox news question. Joe biden did you. Where did hunter biden bury the children that he murdered. And then joe biden's like It's a bunch of malarkey you blah blah blah. Calls him something then. All of a sudden that per se. You know that pursuing. Joe biden for defamation. We would have to say like oh. That's not part of joe. Biden's job as president but i dunno kind of is i think that's exactly right and again if you ever want to have a president right like you do a good job of pointing out the difference between donald trump and barack obama who you know had reasonably look better off than you and i but you know kind of person buried who killed the tan suit now is not the kind of person that with trump. It's really easy to just say. Yeah well let trump higher is own damn lawyers and defend his own damn lawsuits. You could imagine particularly a president bernie sanders right who you know just now at age. One hundred five is worth a million dollar like. I remember when the stories came out and bernie's a millionaire. It's like god. I would hope so but but right like you could you know sue bernie sanders into oblivion right like. That's the thing that you could actually do. If you were sufficiently well funded. And if you do not want to have future presidents at risk of being sued into oblivion you know our only future presidents will be you know of the mega billionaire capitalist class. You know then you don't care. But i do think you ought to carry her. Yeah the only thing. I'm worried about is. Obviously trump should be found guilty. I don't know what you say. Civil found live on whatever. Does this mean that. The government's gonna pick up the tab if he jean carole gets damage. That's what really doesn't sit well with me. It shouldn't sit well with you and the answer to that is yes and the reason is ox. It it does. I don't disagree that that that's sexes. That outcome and i would say the remedy to that is look not elect presidents who defame rape victims when they're in When they're being questioned. I agree with you. I wish there was a way to tailor. the federal tort claims. Act such that the it looked like there. Might you might have a set of presidential amendments right like it. We know adam. Schiff has been working on kind of a series of reforms based on things he learned that trump. Did we know that the house judiciary committee has trump's taxes. Now so you know. At some point we are going to see you know a set of like era reforms. That will lock the barn door. Now that trump has escaped and narrowly prevent us from ever having criminally insane. Game show he needed to get that passed for twenty twenty four twenty twenty five when trump starts his second term. So thank it. It'd be nice to have that Well oh you're mad at me andrew. Then let's all vote. Okay down gauged. John to make it not happen. Make me wrong. That made a very compelling case on that one. i think that makes a lot of sense. I don't like it. It sucks that we would have to pay for trump's defamation but you know i get it actually at the principal does kind of make sense. This show is brought to you by paint your life folks. I love paint your life. I've said it before. I'll say it again. I love the painting..

"doj" Discussed on Equity

"Hello and welcome to an equity shot. . My name is Alex Wilhelm. . I Have Danny Crichton on the phone Danny, , how are you? ? I'm doing. . All right. . Alex how are you today? ? Better than Google who has been sued by the DOJ and eleven state aid over anticompetitive behaviour. . Now, , Danny we have known for a long time that this was coming. . It was pre sage tr- think rather heavily I had a chance to dig into the actual filing. I . have many many opinions but just going to set the ground people are tuning in and unsure of why we've reached this moment why Google and why? ? Now why did take me a little bit of time to find the filing I using bang and after I gave up and Use Google which may be part of the problem but let let's let's boil it down. . Obviously big tech has gotten really really large over the last decade there's been increasing concerns about all the big tech companies everything from facebook to apple, , Google and onwards and onwards. . What are the angles that <hes> the government is trying to take on unto regulating these companies is around antitrust. . In the United States the major antitrust act is the Sherman. . act. . That Jay filed under this morning under section two it's specifically focused on search and particularly search advertising and so. . One of the things on the conference call with journalists. . This morning that the wd was talking about is obviously there's a lot of concerns about social media bias. . There's a lot of concerns Abou- Anti competitive practices around android and chrome, , and a bunch of other issues all around tech. . This lawsuit from you Jay is only focused on searching particularly search advertising and the reason. . That sort of comes out of some of theories out of Yale and some other law schools which are focused on Google's consolidation of the ad market over the the arts and teen to its acquisition of Doubleclick and a bunch of other at tech companies over the years. . So they've launches lawsuit they have eleven Geez all those agencies were gop, , agee's and it's filed this morning. . To <hes> point out that this is all about focused on search search access in some way more than I expected the circular benefits that Google gets scale as google has more data coming into view usage you can improve its products and therefore it's better than everyone else, , and so the is how does Google maintain all of this market share and my read of of of the lawsuits some of the points are pretty good. . Some were bad. . So I think that there's a key paragraph that I went to bring us everyone listening. . That I pulled out from the filing. . This is from deeper into it. . So if you go just meet the I won't see it but it's a good summation. . So if you'll excuse my terrible reading voice here, , we here's a DOJ's opinion about all the stuff google has unlawfully maintained its monopoly by implementing force in a series of exclusionary agreements with distributors or at least the last decade particularly when taken together Google exclusionary agreements have denied rivals rivals access to the most important distribution channels. . In fact, , Google exclusionary conduct cover almost sixty percent. . Of US search queries be things like it's android device agreements. . I'd add almost half of the remains are funneled through properties owned and operated directly by Google. . So essentially, , this boils down to Google has used commercial relationships to essentially force other companies specifically device manufacturers to pre install google software and give Google search preeminence. . Google then gives manufactures often cut revenue back to make it look like a transaction but in reality if you want to run ANDROID, , you have to use Google on your phone or you can't get access to anything. . That you need, , and then therefore you become a partner and the consumer gets Google kind of pre installed and pre defaulted. . It might my issue at this is a pre default or a preset default is not a death sentence and this DOJ filing kind of treats a preset default, , the end of the conversation for that consumer. . So if consumers were just more active in picking what they wanted us, , there won't be much of an issue here. . So I'm curious about your view on their relative strengths of the different arguments as you've rhythm. . To me the with nuts here is to think back to use v Microsoft you know what? ? Two decades ago in one was a landmark trust case particularly in tech but even just generally, , it was focus on defaults of browsers within explorer explorer on windows and twenty years for we're still talking about default search engines that are browsers but through browsers, , it's not even about the browser. . Today. . But basically, , what search engine is in the bar up I, , think that this is an interesting angle. Again, . , I think the advertising pieces much more critical. . The advertising market Google is very dominant and it's network effects is very, , very strong and network only exists because Google owns a frivolous vertically integrated sort of add operation right now and can really join in any part of the tier. . Tracking the can't do analytics because Google owns a whole stack and so to me that has always been the strongest part the the browsers are tricky, , right so so Google does pay apple for instance, , billions of dollars to be in safari and particularly mobile safari. . It pays Mozilla hundreds of millions of dollars of not billions of dollars to be the default search engine in Mozilla, , and that's one of the largest revenue sources for the foundation and the company. . Google's argument has always been consumers have choice. . In fact, , BING DOT COM is less characters than google dot com it takes less work to get to Bengal com a crazy as it sounds but the reality is that has this victory in search for reason, , is because they own so many different components they have you know excerpts from different sites that are built around technologies that you know even here tech-rich we have integrate with Google search to ensure that our articles are given priority in those search engines so we can't just. . Ignore, , Google entirely, , and so I i. . think the argument is fairly decent. . Now, , the challenge here is that there's so many different angles there seventy lost his the democratic. . AGEE's have their own lawsuit underway and they've said they're going to continue to do that separately from the DOJ congress's looking into second to thirty, which , affects more facebook but also potentially goodwill as a sort of open harbor and forgetting the term. . Now you say her safe harbor harbor it's a safe harbor I think safe harbors would have opened component they'd be lake. . Exactly, , the pond. . Yes. . The savings bond, , but you know there's all these different angles I think what's interesting is the timing obviously the the DVD and his staff this morning really emphasizing this sort of the right time he said, , it was after sixteen months of investigatory work on the antitrust division happened to be exactly two weeks before major US election to the reality is is as has been a discussion at the DJ. . For a decade. . So you know it is obviously <hes> particularly all-time. . The reality is they've been doing this work since you've only years possibly even to the Bush years as well.

"doj" Discussed on Unconfirmed: Insights and Analysis From the Top Minds in Crypto

". Last week Attorney General William Bar announced the publication by the Department of Justice of cryptocurrency enforcement framework what is in the framework and how will it be used? ? Does it change anything about the way law enforcement has been going after crimes involving cryptocurrency? ? Well <hes> I don't rule that it changes anything, , but it is very significant in another away a number of ways. . So first of all, the , cryptocurrency enforcement framework is a seventy plus page document issued by DOJ on specifically by the Attorney General Cyber Digital Task Force a week ago today on October Eighth <hes>, , and it is a self described comprehensive overview of the emerging threats and enforcement challenges associated with the increasing prevalence and use of currency. . To details, , relationships that the Department of Justice has built with regulatory enforcement partners both within the US government and around the world and then outlines departments, , response strategies <hes> and for my purposes. . I personally find the last part of where the framework talks about how the department has responded to crypto currency the most interesting. . And so in general, , what are the main takeaways in terms of the significance of the Attorney General Publishing Document? ? Well I while I think just the fact that the Attorney General Department of Justice has published this document is itself significant? ? It shows that Crypto is something that DOJ's focusing on and also perhaps even more important that DOJ wants the world to know that Crypto is something that it's focused on. . I pull a couple of about key takeaways from the framework <hes>. . First of all <hes> DOJ seems to be still somewhat skeptical of Crypto <hes>. . So in the first part of the framework <hes>, , there's a section on legitimate uses crypto, , which runs about a few paragraphs, , and then there's a section that is titled Illegitimate, , uses which runs to more than eleven pages And if you look closely at the legitimate uses section. . It's careful not to come out and actually say that there are any legitimate uses at all. . It uses language like in here on quoting Laura a cryptocurrency advocates maintain that a decentralized distributed and secure cryptocurrency holds great promise for legitimate use proponents cryptocurrency contend that by eliminating the need for financial intermediaries to validate and facilitate transactions. . CRYPTOCURRENCY has the potential to minimize transaction costs and to reduce corruption and fraud. . Some advocates claim that crypto currency may in the future facilitate micro payments. . Others believe that the privacy associated with crypto currency through raising significant challenges for law enforcement <hes> though raising significant challenges for law enforcement can have valid and beneficial uses of reading between the lines. . I think <hes>. . You can detect a certain amount of skepticism about crypto even though it's not nearly as new as it was at one time. . So, , when it comes to the DOJ, , what are the main crimes that they're looking at when it comes to cryptocurrency? ? Well the first part of the report or the framework actually lays out. . Three categories of crime. . So one is the use of Crypto as he man or to siltation for lissette activities. . So for example, , on taking Crypto as payment for illegal drugs over legal weapons or child pornography or using crypto <hes> to engage in terrorist financing that's category one according to the framework. . The second category according to the framework is using crypto to engage in money laundering or hide assets from tax authorities <hes> in the third, , it's crimes against the crypto marketplace itself like hacking exchanges. . And there's a section of the framework that goes through all of the laws that DOJ can use to counter this kind of activity and they're more or less. . What you would expect <hes> the fraud statutes. . The Money Laundering Statutes <hes> the terrorist financing

"Today the DOJ revealing the discovery of a new struck notes in the Flynn case apparently blockbuster and should be released shortly and John saying his sources and I've checked a couple of mine as well very ecstatic scope of Tory an explosive here will get the details of that in the days to come what we see the actual notes now we're talking about the break so we talked about the German destination what you wrote a column six cents bars dropped about that investigation well I'm but dot ball but during has something available to him at par which never did and that is going beyond the purview of the department of justice and FBI one and number two the ability to convene a grand jury and issue indictments it seems we're gonna read tea leaves a look of bread crumbs that indictment seem likely now yeah listen that the press the Attorney General has said on multiple occasions now there's evidence of criminal conduct here and you wouldn't be waiting to interview witnesses you wouldn't be waiting for grand juries to be restored again in the post Cold era if if you were trying to bring a criminal case and I think all the indications are there and I think one of the most interesting comments he made over the weekend was that when you take a look at how the F. B. I. open this case on July thirty first on this allegation that Alexander Downer an Australian diplomat meets George Papadopoulos at a wine bar in London because Papadopoulos make some comment that he heard the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton they thought that was a big enough reason to open the case and the Attorney General said based on what he's learned from Durham he thinks the case was opened on the quote finished of REITs meaning almost slim to no evidence no real basis this by on the opponent's campaign heading into the final days of the election I think that's a really extraordinary statement but he turns out he chooses his words very carefully so I think we're learning a lot more that Durham probably behind the scenes I found out that this case wasn't based on a real strong predicate but it may not have met the standards of the FBI has for opening a case and then the question is why would they do that and the press at the Attorney General said this is a close as I've seen to an organized effort to remove a president in modern history so he's starting to lean towards that idea that maybe this was an organized effort rather than a legitimate criminal investigation very strong words by the Attorney General you know I I think the one thing that people don't understand about Attorney General Barr and and I'm just watching him from a distance even this whole issue with the Southern District of New York I mean it was it was interesting to watch the ad Obama cleared out anybody that serves in any of these in these offices it's they serve at the pleasure of the president this was a temporary and interim appointment number one and also had to do more with mayor de Blasio in New York than anything else and another position was being considered for this guy that that again since has left the position which by the way is very common when the president wants to make the appointment him or herself in this case we may himself and I'll be president trump and then we find out all the details that it had more to do with something unrelated and then the president and the Attorney General says all by the way if anyone ever puts pressure on you contact Michael Hart which immediately I have told him to immediately take up any issue of any political pressure ever brought to bear on a prosecutor yeah this is the Attorney General doesn't play games he says what he means and he means what he says and I think one of the things that you saw play out with Jeff Berman this weekend is the mentality of what you would call the permanent proxy the deep state as as critical quality that they feel entitled to stay in their job even when their boss and the president who's empowered by the constitution says I want to make a change in state they play out this melodrama as though it's their job they are the people service and they they serve under the pleasure the present because that's the way our founding fathers intended it but you're seeing more and more of these career bureaucrats acting as though they have king like privileges that they can't be removed they can't be meddled with they can't be told yes or no based on the supervision of a you know of the intentions of the administration that is exactly the mentality that Donald Trump came to smash in Washington he wanted the doctor to to be responsive to the people and not to itself and I think the Jeff Berman episode plays out out perfectly you saw the deep state mentality in public in real time and whatnot turned out to be like a soap opera he turned it into a soap opera Justin news dot com John Solomon investigative reporter thank you for being with us when we come back apparently the Wendy's where the shooting ratio Brooks took places now apparently been taken over people reports now from Bernie Kerik on the ground of the people there are around the Windies building with their fifteens cops calling out.

allowed to talk about the past only the present you can't compare trump to anyone else you can only focus on the present okay fine I like what about us here's why because it tells me if you are a truthful person that's why so to these two thousand former DOJ members I can tell you right now you are only concerned because this is trouble period you didn't give a darn about colder being under criminal contempt and civil contempt you didn't care colder's DOJ took illegally obtained donor information from the IRS and used it to harass and intimidate donors to Republican causes you didn't care you didn't care about the DOJ going after journalists treating them like spies you didn't care about that you didn't care about fast and furious of the good the gun Walker operation where colder decided that the cartels have a bunch of guns from American gun stores and taking over the border we still don't know the motive on that the we can guess you didn't care you don't care that Mike

he wants and an agreed upon outcome they are there to push climate control they're there to push the theory that there's a climate catastrophe coming so Mike Bloomberg needs to run your entire life Mister I put an air conditioner for my house on my car window swim in giving a speech my car's Crispian court to come out you DO J. people don't care about that at all all those factors indicate to me you are only doing this because a trump because no those are the things matter June there was no emergency meeting around gun Walker fast and furious none of that let's talk to Wally in Tampa Florida while you're on the Russian by programs taught her and filling in high Wally well done we have that going on here in Hillsboro county we are Republican state's attorney was a great guy it got bombarded by a former Democrats prosecutor federal prosecutor it was all funded by George Soros they came in with big big dollar campaigns and Eric holder in his redistricting process that is going on because I got moved out of a Republican district into a Democrat district yes exactly and and to top it all off it's all in the city all these people moving into the city the county kept the Republican but the in the inner city in the city but the Democrat states attorneys in office then they're they're doing it now the place to county commission city council it was you know what's the number one is you're you're having the same experience that we're having on the west coast and such of having these paid for Attorney General or assistant Attorney General brought in running the city positions as well we've got this going on in the the media they're not your soul who is George Soros YC installing wise he literally paying for attorneys to work in these offices why is Mike Bloomberg aware are allowed to do this you eat the you are talking about people who claim the trucks a mall you're McLaws think that's a big deal because someone stated hotel but they're not talking about buying literal laws and literal attorneys general villa door that so that yeah that's correct and not been ripped out but they're also doing that Eric holders on this leavened leaven state redistricting campaign because he says I got friends of mine it in other states up in Ohio they're out there doing it right now right in the lack of curiosity on this he tells you everything you need to know about the media and the lack of concern about this being done tells you everything you need to know about these two thousand careers at the DOJ they did not care they do not care and less the name is Donald John trump Wally thanks for the call appreciate that very much all of the shore rush shop one other thing that you just maddening in all as all get out is the fact that these AG's they are brought on with a specific outcome in mind and I would like to know one day I would like to know because it's hard to find out I would like to know how many people have been bought into the open border sing because you've watched this transformation all the sudden there's this transformation so we know Bloomberg's placing a Jeez to have a climate change outcome we know that George Soros is place placing attorneys in these offices outcomes on drug legalization we know that George Soros is funding drug legalization and heroin shooting sites etcetera we know about that in Canada we're guessing he's doing it here as well it's a gases which I do you might might be is it's documented some degree in Vancouver Canada so we all these things are going on no curiosity from the press so I'd like to know how many people have been bought into positions where they're refusing to enforce immigration laws right because all of a sudden there's a switch that we're just gonna do that Doug Kay thanks very much let's go out and just examine one other aspect to this let's examine one other aspects to what is going on in tonight's debate one of the things that I want to know is how who will be the most effective at hitting at Mike Bloomberg on the arrogance of what he said about farmers we talked with the earlier she's a medical doctor comes about forming background I want to know is gonna be Warren is it going to be mayor Pete someone has got to draw blood on this figure Lee speaking with Mike Bloomberg let's talk to mark in grand rapids Michigan up mark you're on the rush about program taught Herman filling and I'm mark are you doing a good friend of mine from high school thirty years he's been in the business he sells fertilizers you helps farmers arborists they spray the field they do a Grammy cast arm appeals they hope they do over a hundred thousand acres of farmers yeah maybe he showed me maps where they take soil cast because every year the soils can vary in how much fertilizer they need in order for the crop to be good but then they're not done with that they help them put the fertilizer down yeah man yeah like the elements or the rain or whatever jail whatever can damage the crop or they can give a crap how it might saturate that yield to the point where next year it's going to be totally different work might need less or more it's just amazing the ignorance that Mike Bloomberg spouts off about stuff you have no idea what he's talking about no in it you know it this I want to be super careful here super super careful because I do not I I just I don't body shape I just don't I am this is hard to say I've got a lot of friends or short I do I do I come from a wrestling background I get a lot of friends were the short in stature this actually puts to me some truth to the idea that Bloomberg is bothered by his height because it lets you got some deep hole in yourself or there's some deep in security you don't go around pretending that because you read a book you know sitting on an airplane or an article in in in in in New York judge times weekends that you know how to farm what that goes to a very deep hole in the eagle is not your experts mark when someone will say something like that that they're coming from a perspective of deep deep weakness and self doubt we're just knowing what he had to go through in getting his degree and then becoming are in the business include incredible because I have so many variables that they have learned in order to make the farmer successful yep soul yep I couldn't agree more mark thanks for the call from grand rapids Michigan appreciated it tonight here's the bats are that I be taken the debate which moderator will actually ask Bloomberg I will sorry it's not my job to amuse myself can you imagine one of the modernising all mayor Bloomberg I am in front of me a charge that card determines the corrects nitrogen cycle of a of a corn field that's ten thousand acres located at this specific location United States of can you explain the nitrogen cycle of a cornfield at this exact position as is by the way where is this this longitudinal all added on this longitudinal point on the map love to see that see I don't even know farming I grew up around Saddam in in for Rush Limbaugh on the EIB network you're listening to the EIB network.

"Thinks the DOJ should have nothing to do with this. He's basically telling us, we should ignore everything. William bar has said about obstruction just ignore it, any would say that tweet from President Trump that there's insufficient evidence case closed that this is wrong. So is that the end of the story from Robert Muller? That is his aim. It's clear. I hope and expect this to be the only time that I will speak to you in this manner. He wants to remain silent on this. He doesn't want any part of the mess. That's about to occur. There's been discussion about an appearance before congress any testimony from this office would not go beyond on our report. Yeah. He said he doesn't want to testify if he gets the painted my hunches, you'll sit up there for our saying over and over the report speaks for itself. And the report is my testimony because he does not want to be part of the political Donnybrook that is unfolding in. He did not seem to have a problem with reductions anything like that. He said, the DOJ made his findings as public as they could four hundred forty eight pages. Check the report. Terry Moran doing the reporting for us. Thank you. Thanks.

I talked to a democratic activist or a democratic fundraiser who's excited about Joe Biden getting in the race, and among people who want him most you hear pronounce of I wouldn't say fear, but concern that this might not go all that wealth and love from the Matthews brothers to the belief that impeach me as one of the most divisive forces pass that we could go down to an country, but it's the pass front. China takes us there. We have no choice. Who's your? Ali he's being vested for a crime that didn't have. And he certainly didn't commit says Russian interference a cooperation and conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians did not happen. And that was the criminal level knows. Mr. mal Daniela. I'm no about any level a criminal level. I do I'm sure I'm stoppable. He wanted separate from the DOJ because of what he saw is separate from the DOJ within the DOJ as a mechanism separate. I know it's under the DOJ. I understand how the guidelines written. I understand why they were written because we didn't like the. We have three branches of government within the executive sprout, a new branch of government mother couldn't decide on that one gave it to you friend, the attorney general he decided which job whose job general's job. He didn't have to do that. Of course, he had to do it who's going to decide whether to indict or not congress as a political matter leave it to them they decide whether to impeach for. Doesn't indict congress. And I know I'm using I'm using it as just a a metaphor here. We know you leading a lot of people because we know the audience, we know the who say smaller by the minute, you can't roam swaths hacks and moon bats v where.
