DOJ sues Facebook, alleging bias against U.S. workers in favor of temporary visa holders
"Administration and Facebook are facing off. The Trump administration accuses Facebook of discriminating against US workers in favor of foreigners with special visas to fill more than 2600 high paying jobs. Justice Department alleges that the tech giant refused to recruit, consider or hire qualified in available US workers for the positions that it reserved for temporary visa holders. Facebook sponsored the visa holders for green cards authorizing them to work permanently the positions. That issue offered an average salary of about $156,000 a year. The department is seeking unspecified civil penalties in back pay on behalf of U. S. Workers Denied employment.

"There will definitely have it live if you want to watch so full disclosure. This story sort of breaks my rule of telling you only way you absolutely need to know. But i just can't resist it sort of a pet project for the show at this point. Of course i'm talking about the monolith from the utah desert that one is still gone but another one popped up in romania of all places. This one might be a copycat because it's located near one of the most famous mountains in romania. It just got put up recently. It's got swirling patterns on the sides it's about two feet higher than the one from utah. The ground around. It also looks like someone was digging their recently whereas the one in utah was undisturbed which is actually part of what made it so strange. I guess at this point is either someone in romania saw the story online and wanted to make up their own for some reason or is part of some really bizarre marketing campaign by an indie movie. Or something like that. It's obviously getting a lot of free publicity. And i feel like some other movie. Did something like this where people found something that was strange just like in public but then director had come out and fess up to it. Does that sound familiar to anyone. Have to look that up later. And see if i find anything but email me at quick news daily and gmail.com if you can actually decipher what i'm talking about. Oh by the way the monolith was actually in the utah desert since twenty sixteen but nobody actually cared about it until just recently opened dokie artichoke. That's where i'm going to cut it off for today. No announcements on my end. So if you're listening on apple podcasts. Or maybe pod chaser pod chaser dot com lever of you. If you have the time a rating review five stars would be preferred. But obviously i take constructive feedback as well in any case other than that. Just really make sure to stay safe out there. It's getting really bad especially in new york and california again so any listener out there Really hang tight. Hang in there. We'll get through. We'll get through it. It's almost almost over all right. Folks i'll see you right back here tomorrow. Today is wednesday december second. Thanks again for joining me. I think i'll describe today's show as deceptively interesting because if you just hear the headlines of the stories you'd think a lot has happened since the last episode but because our government is corrupt and pretty much used only for trump's profit. Nothing is going to come of some of these stories. That's just my guess. Maybe that's just me being cynical. I honestly really do hope that i'm wrong. But only time will tell which is the frustrating thing. I do want mentioned quickly that there has been some great content on our website lately. If i do say so myself so stick around until the end for more details on that but first let's get caught up. Let's start with one of the flashy headlines that the news was interested in last night. Which is that. The doj department of justice is investigating the potential crime of someone close to the white house offering to give money to the white house or associated super pacs in exchange for a presidential. Pardon we learn this from the release of twenty pages of court documents in those pages where partially redacted meaning. The document does not give out names or dates of any events however it does reveal that this document was a request from prosecutors to get access to documents that were seized in a raid at the end of the summer law enforcement apparently seized over fifty digital devices including pads iphones. Laptops flash drives and computer drives et cetera. So when we say it's it doesn't necessarily mean physical documents. The prosecutors want this access because in these cases the seized material is looked over by a filter team who goes through the files to make sure that there isn't any privileged information that the prosecutors shouldn't be seen however the judge in this case granted this request because of course attorney client privilege does not apply when they discussed crimes mike committing crimes. The prosecutors argued that the seized material included evidence of quote a secret. Lobbying scheme and quote end bribery conspiracy that offered quote a substantial political contribution in exchange for a presidential pardon or reprieve of sentence end quote justice department clarified and said that no government official was or is currently a subject or target of the investigation disclosed in this filing the actual court documents says quote the political strategy to obtain a presidential pardon was parallel to and distinct from redacted 's role as an attorney advocate for redacted. So i'm guessing rudy giuliani. At this point. He fits the bill as an attorney advocate. And i'm sure that all of his funny business in ukraine peddling of russian conspiracy theories is making him rethink. Whether all that was legal. The justice department wanted to keep filings related to the matter confidential in court because individuals and conduct hadn't yet been charged which also narrows down the possibilities in probably eliminates. Michael cohen. was my other guests ultimately the prosecutors. Say that they still intend to continue front three people who had communications about this scheme. Whatever that means again. My best guess is rudy at this point but if it centers around contributions. I'm not really sure if rudy had money to give in like shipping beginning paid as his lawyer. I don't know either way. Whoever it is. I really don't think anything will come of this. Nothing ever seems to stick to trump since he has. Bill barr for his attorney. General which is like the fox guarding the hen house. Speaking of bill barr. Let's go over the story that all the news led with last night bar said in an interview with the associated press that the department of justice had not found any widespread fraud that would change the results of the election. The fbi has been following up on complaints but so far they found nothing. This story broke after bar spent about three hours at the white house yesterday. Which i'm sure we're not pleasant for him or maybe they were. This was just put out as a diversion so they could talk about whatever other scummy plans. They have needless to say this was a big story. Because bar has sacrificed his entire legacy to trump's bidding. However i think the news was missing the point and that this was actually released a cover up one or more things. The one i'm thinking of specifically that i haven't mentioned is the revelation that barr had appointed a special counsel to look into how the fbi its investigation into trump's campaign in two thousand sixteen. This is why trump has always whining about obama. Spying on his campaign in order from bar was leaked and in that order. Bar gave the special counsel john. Durham his instructions. The order said durham's investigation should be quote including limited to crossfire hurricane and the investigation of special counsel. Robert s mueller. the third. i should mention that crossfire. Hurricane is the name of the investigation that the fbi was doing during the campaign. If the name. John durham sounds familiar. It's because he was already investigating this exact stuff months ago but he wasn't a special counsel at the time by getting this title. It just means that. He's more protected and campfire fired his easily. By whoever becomes. Joe biden's attorney general. Special counsels are only supposed to be fired for misconduct dereliction of duty or conflicts of interest but the keyword is supposed to trump. Never did end up. Firing bob muller although there were several reports of ordering people to do so and then those people telling him he was an idiot for trying to in any case. This move by bar wasn't made because he wants justice. I think that's pretty safe to assume it's just to make it harder for joe biden because of biden's people fire germ while durham is investigating things that happened during the time of the obama administration. That obviously won't look too good.

Justice Department investigating possible bribery-for-pardon scheme
"Fake news President Trump is dismissing reports that the Justice Department is investigating claims of a bribery scheme involving a possible presidential pardon. Court documents, however, revealed there is indeed a DOJ probe in which some unnamed person allegedly offered a major political contribution in exchange for a pardon. Meanwhile, correspondent Cecilia Vega tells us after pardoning former national security adviser Michael Flynn last week, the president is weighing other possibility, talking about pardons being issued before the president leaves office for people. You've not even been charged with the crime. Legal experts say that is allowed. What is unprecedented here is this potential for a conflict of interest of preemptive get out of jail free card before crime has even been committed, possibly for friends, family, even the president himself. New York Times says That's because Donald Trump is worried the Biden administration will seek retribution against him and his family. They also say that Rudy Giuliani had discussions with the president about pardoning him. Giuliani yesterday tweeted calling that lies and fake news.

"doj" Discussed on Axios Today
"Yesterday. Three major pieces of news came out of the department of justice and attorney general. Bill barr number one a declaration by bar. There's been no meaningful election fraud number. Two special protections for the one prosecutor looking at the origins of the russian interference probe and three allegations about bribes. For presidential pardons the lot of news for one day and in all involves the trump administration which is why margaret. Talev axios as white house in politics. Editor is here to give us the bottom line on all three stories. Good morning margaret. good. Morning i'll try my head's spinning as well but you're right. There's a lot going on in this all pointing in one general direction. So let's start with number one attorney. General bill barr did an interview with the associated press yesterday and said there was no widespread evidence of fraud that would alter election results. So he's one of the most loyal members of president trump's cabinet. What's your takeaway about this direct contradiction of the president as a political reporter. And i think says an american. I look at this and i say wow if bill barr is saying that there's been no meaningful evidence of fraud that must mean that president trump's avenues for a challenger completely but as a veteran political reporter i go one layer beyond that and i think why is he giving this interview now. I mean you don't just give an interview like this to the associate impress because it's sunny day in early december and you feel like making news. And that's where these developments begin to take my attention so margaret speaking of those other things number two as you said comes from that same. Ap interview bar also appointed prosecutor. John durham as a special counsel. So just reminding everybody. He's the guy who's been leading the investigation into the fbi's twenty sixteen investigation of the trump campaign. He apparently made this decision in october. So what's the timing of why we're just learning about this now. Bright making durham. A special counsel would allow him to stay on to continue his investigation. Even after joe biden takes office so it looks at a first glance like that is bar doing a solid for the president right but jonathan swan. Our colleague has done some really interesting reporting that finds another layer to this. Which is that. There is intense pressure on bar to get this. Durham report out. And that a lot of folks close to the president view this revelation to be kind of a fig-leaf to stall to buy time rather than have that report released that brings to number three for records unsealed by the chief. Judge of the dc district court revealed that the department of justice is investigating a potential bribery scheme for presidential pardon from the white house margaret. The documents that were released are heavily redacted. So what do we know. And what are you watching for here. I wish i could tell you who. What when but it is just a sea of blackout magic. Marker line after magic marker line crime fraud finding blackout blackout blackout in which blackout said and blackout acted as lobbyists. So the truth is we don't know yet. This is certainly something to keep an eye on but we just don't know where it will go. Which of these stories to use the most significant. They're all of a piece. The big question that all of this adds up to is will. President trump successfully spend the remaining weeks of his presidency trying to exact revenge on people who he perceives to be enemies. Will he be able to preemptively. Pardon himself and ultimately how long will his legacy and these investigations that he have set in motion live on beyond his own presidency. Margaret.
Potential "bribery-for-pardon" scheme under investigation by DOJ
"We're following a number of developing stories tonight including one story derived from these court documents. That were just unsealed in federal court in washington. Dc tonight. and i will tell you in advance. I will tell you right upfront. That the story that is derived from these newly unsealed documents the story itself is is still sort of shielded in a lot of mystery tonight in part because these documents that were just released are still almost totally redacted. All those black bars on the pages really brings back memories. This for me forever is going to be the sense. Memory of the donald j trump administration redacted redacted redacted. What this is is a twenty page. Long order from the top judge in the federal court in dc chief. Judge barrel howell judge. How will issued this order in late august. She only made it public today. And i say she made it public as i showed you a whole bunch of still out but what we can see in the bits. That aren't blacked out. Is sort of show stopping. What this document reveals. Is that federal prosecutors at the department of justice have been actively investigating what the judge describes here as a quote bribery for pardon scheme a quote secret lobbying scheme and bribery conspiracy by which some number of people were suspected of arranging bribes. To the president in the form of quote substantial political contributions those substantial political contributions would be the bribe the official act they wanted from the president in return for that bribe was allegedly quote a presidential pardon or reprieve of sentence for person whose name is blacked out so this document unsealed today although still heavily redacted show's technically what this sort of the work of the court that is revealed by this document is that judge. How all approved a request from these federal prosecutors back in august when the prosecutors were asking to look at stuff that had been seized under a search warrant as part of this criminal investigation some office was raided this past summer and from that office what was seized were apparently more than fifty 'electronic devices computer drives laptops ipads iphones thumb drives. They were all seized by search warrant as part of this federal criminal investigation. Into whether trump presidential pardons were for sale in exchange for cash contributions the judge looking at that evidence looking at the circumstances under which that evidence was collected ruled in this order that we can now see today that those materials seized under that search warrant could be handed over to prosecutors to help them build their case. That's what this orvis. And and that's all we know. This order was unsealed today. Still with lots of reductions by order of the judge who allowed prosecutors to see that material that was seized as part of that investigation. We don't know of anybody being charged in this case. We haven't seen anything that looks like public charges brought against anybody in a case like this although sometimes in some cases for some amount of time it charges like this might be kept under seal until the person is actually Brought to court to face these charges. We also don't know who the person is. They were allegedly trying to buy a trump pardon four. We don't know about any level of potential involvement by the white house era of the fact that they were apparently being targeted by this game. But behold this exists and least as late as this summer. A trump pardon bribery scheme was under investigation by the justice department. We're gonna get some updated reporting on that over the course of the hour tonight.

Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster
"We now have a two point two billion dollar deal which i guess by the standards of emanate manet transactions is quite small but by the standards of book publishing. It's absolutely enormous webuye. Random penguin or penguins house. I never know which one those two. I prefer which is owned by this. Massive german publishing house called bertelsmann is going to buy or his said they wanted has agreed to by simon and schuster which is the third-biggest publisher in america. Four point two billion dollars and according to a statement from news cool which. I don't know if i take this at face value. But i haven't seen anyone say that it's not true. This will create a publishing house with seventy percent of all literary fiction. They basically have seventy percent of all these novels in america and they have about a third of the entire book market. If this this looks to me like a monopoly and it looks to me like bertelsmann's trying to create a monopoly and does anyone disagree. And if they are. Shouldn't this be looked. I don't agree. I think this could be very bad for book publishing in general especially for authors. There's one bless house to compete for authors and titles so that means lower advances that means bigger titles. There's already all this consolidation in the book business and there's a tendency now the trend. Is you know big blockbuster. Titles simon and shuster made a lot of money this year because of they they had the john bolton book and the mary trump book penguin random house made a lot of money this year because they had the obama book and the other obama book and so the consolidation isn't really good news for people care about you know interesting books getting published. It's just more bad news and it is a monopoly but at the same time i sent around this piece of franklin four wrote in the atlantic. About how this is actually not about book publishing per se or book publishing companies but is actually about amazon because while this combined company would have a third of the book publishing market amazon has about half of book publishing distribution. So it's like maybe a counterweight to that. I don't know how convinced are very like amazon's position in book. Sales is clearly monopolistic. And as if you remember back a million years to the episode. We talked about when they go into a big fight with has shed You know they basically stopped shipping shit bugs and they will mock is unavailable in this kind of thing in this big fight. They are not afraid to play t when it comes to fighting with book. Publishers and it is color ripley possible. I suppose that a combined penguin random house and simon and schuster is going to be so big that they will be able to stand up to amazon's bullying a little bit about better. And i kind of by that but everything else that frank wrote in that piece is just like. Oh my god. You're such a fogy. And he was like. I'm plus he was like we need to do something about this amazon monopoly without ever saying what it is that we need to do is very hard to break up that monopoly at this point. Is you know full of us trying to like bookshop to amazon. Like it's not going to move the needle verify thousand just has that monopoly that monopoly incidentally is so entrenched in people's minds. The people simply assume that amazon has a monopoly everywhere else as well and it doesn't and this is one of the weird things about amazon. Is that because his daunted is a bookstore and because it has such a powerful position in books every time it makes an announcement like it did last week saying oh we're moving into pharmaceuticals and prescriptions. Oh my it's going to have napoli in prescription. Of course it's not gonna have a monopoly and prescriptions. Books are unique. There were very very unique. Market it does seem absolutely obvious that the big loser here is authors and especially authors of fiction. Because what always used to happen. Is you'd have an auction. Your agent would like send out your manuscript to a bunch of different publishers and then highest bidder would win but now when all of those different publishers owned by the same company they basically just agree between each other which one of them is going to make the bed and then they don't need to worry about what the other one's going to because they all know that they're not going to receive a competitive bid from one of the others so it's very bad for author advances. I is that enough for the doj to try and stop this anti monopoly of i. Don't yeah it's a good question. I mean i think from what we've seen recently. It seems like it's definitely more likely than anyone probably would have said like five years ago. I mean he had like the mcgraw hill. S- engagements textbooks but still that was merged that with stopped on antitrust grounds. So i i think this will definitely be scrutinized quite a bit whether or not they consider the consider it a obviously a less competitive market whether the considerate monopolistic is definitely up for debate. The other losers here are going to be. You're gonna have a lot of people are gonna lose their jobs if this goes through about specifically what they said in terms of where you get you know your your synergies is that they're gonna cut a bunch of sales and marketing jobs and they. I've got more importantly they're going to cut a bunch of like weird back in like you know that whole infrastructure of printing and distribution now can be like diedhiou placated which we east coast media types. Don't like to think about like the truck is driving the books around to bookstores. Whatever books a big heavy physical objects which way like a lot of physical. Wait if you add. The mola something like the obama but with seven hundred pages and sold two million copies already. That's a lot of just logistics of moving around the country and those logistics or get centralized and that's a bunch of savings right there and one of the interesting things about the book industry right now is the covid. Pandemic has her book printing clients at exactly the same time as everyone is reading more books especially things like mary trump. and so. There's this incredible crunch all of the publishers who who were meant to be publishing books right now which have been sheduled for months or a year pushing them back because there's just no capacity to print them because you have people like barack obama mary trump just dominating the printing presses so we're gonna have a lot of books really crowding onto the book shelves in the next year or two which have been pushed back. Thanks to cove it. Yeah he also had a lot of books pushback because authors weren't gonna be able to tours and so publishers. Were concerned about that. So they push a big names as well
New DOJ rule could allow executions by electrocution, firing squad
"Was soon allow federal executions to be carried out using methods other than lethal injection. NPR's Brian Mann reports. The new rules change made in the final weeks of the Trump administration would allow the death penalty be administered by other means, including firing squads and poison gas. The new rule goes into effect Christmas Eve and allows federal executions to follow the procedures, Quote prescribed by the laws of the state in which the sentence was imposed. That could mean electrocution, inhaling nitrogen gas and in a few states of firing squad or hanging This comes after Attorney General William Barr resume federal executions this year after a 17 year hiatus. The administration has scheduled five Morrell executions before the end of Trump's term. President elect Joe Biden opposes the death penalty and supports legislation that would ban the federal practice while incentivizing states to end capital punishment as well. Brian
Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative
"Financial times ran a piece saying that apple is working on an alternative to Google search an interesting story. It's an interesting idea. According to the paper apple is stepping up efforts to develop its own search technology as us anti-trust authorities threatened multibillion dollar payments multibillion dollar payments. Google makes secure prime placement of its engine on the iphone already. There's so much about this story that's fascinating to me. It looks like first of all apple. Search engine is already running. Although it's not really a search engine exactly. The financial times says when people type in request for info from the home screen in iowa. Fourteen apple has started showing its own search results looking directly to websites rather than going through a third party in iowa. Fourteen today view. The report says the operating system shows apple generated list of search suggestions rather than the google results these results include auto compete style. Excuse me auto. Complete style. suggestions generated by apple showing that it is learning from its one billion users common queries. Okay see i kinda just want to read the whole story to you and then go back. Point-by-point it's the financial times. Why don't we start there. It's the financial times so of course. They're concentrating on the money. Part of it as if apple just started doing this yesterday. They keep saying that the doj is suing. Google for anticompetitive behavior at the center of that suit or near. The center of that suit is the fact that google pay somewhere between nine billion then twelve billion dollars a year to be the default search engine in safari. Everybody says for iphone. But it's for safari right. The doj in the past few weeks at right were suing. And i know we've known that that was coming for a while. But it's not like falcons can suddenly turn on a search engine from nothing. of course they haven't turned it on nothing Two and a half years ago. The got john john andrea. I'm sure i'm pronouncing that wrong He was the head of google search supposedly. They said it was to Increase their artificial intelligence capabilities and siri virtual assistant but he also brought eight years of experience. Running the world's most popular search engine the financial times. Points out. I mean sorry. It doesn't mean that apple is in creating an alternative to google i. I'm going to go ahead and keep reading. And then we'll i should have read the whole thing right. Experts financial times talked to Some of whom used to work for google. Say it wouldn't cost that much for apple to do this. And that apple has hired the talent to do it. That apple could do it because you can't just go in license somebody else's search technology if you're going to be an alternative google. I did not know until. I was reading the financial times story here and this could explain. Why dot go. I love duck duck. Go doug goes. Was privacy focused search engine and you can go there instead of google and you can type in your queries. And they're not being tracked and that's great They rely on being. It turns out their licensing beings technology. Now still your information as dang between you and duck duck go. It's not going anywhere. It's anonymous all that stuff. It explains why duct that goes results. Aren't necessarily as good as you might want. Duck tuck duck goes results to be apple. Can't just skin being. They can't just skin duck. Oh right they have to come up with something better if they're going to compete with google but not everybody thinks they're going to compete with google. Dan wong associate professor of business at columbia business. School said it would be extremely difficult for apple to ever catch up. Go-goes advantage comes from scale. He said and the endless user feedback helps to tune results and identify areas of improvement. Google gets hundreds of millions of queries every minute from users all over the world. That's an enormous advantage when it comes to data surprising. No one apple declined to comment for the financial times all right. There's so much about this. That's interesting and also i think kinda wrong in what. The financial times is arguing first of all. They're saying that apple is doing this because they're worried about losing the twelve billion dollars nine to twelve billion dollars that up. A apple gets every year from google for being the default search engine. I use siri as often as i can. I know people who don't use siri at all. Google still spending nine billion dollars even if he does get better. Google spending nine billion dollars for apple would not be a waste of money because there are lots of people who are always going to google it. They're not going to ask siri for whatever reason. I know that. When i'm out of the store i don't ask siri because i don't like to talk in public. I don't like to you know. Spread my business around. If i'm worried about a search engine tracking me. I'm certainly going to worry about you. Know saying out loud the grocery store or well. That's the only place. I go now saying out loud to the grocery store what i'm searching for. Nobody else needs to know that. At that point i will start typing stuff in at that point. Is it google that i'm going to. I have set my default search engine to duck duck go and that is another thing that this whole of this seems to sort of ignore. I mean the fact that we do have choices at this point. And i would imagine that somebody at least at apple will go ahead and argue. That what google is playing for is placement because people are lazy or people like google or don't realize they change it even though apple has made it clear that yes you can. Google earth could still pay nine billion dollars a year and not lose their money even if apple gets better at what. It's doing now as far as apple trying to build a search engine. That's going to replace google. I don't think so. I don't think apple is trying to replace a bill. The search engine that everybody is going to go to. Because i don't think apple wants that kind of headache. I think all of this stuff about siri better and about apple's being better. I think all of that is true. I think what apple would like is instead of going to any search engine you pick up your you ask a question you get your answer not kicking over to the. Here's what i found on the web. Not thinking oh. I need to go to google or i need to go to ulta vista wherever it is. I need to go to look up stuff. I need to ask jeeves by. Golly i think that's the part of this whole thing. That actually excites me. The most the idea that my virtual assistant could become more of an assistant unless a virtual thing that it could become a a source that i turned to to ask questions and get answers

DOJ appeals ruling preventing it from replacing Trump in E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit
"A judge's refusal to let the United States replace President Donald Trump as the defendant and a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says Trump raped her in the 19 nineties. Department attorneys notified US District Judge Lewis Kaplan of its plans today to ask the second U. S Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to consider the judge's decision. Judge Kaplan concluded last month and a written decision That Trump's June 19th statements about columnists aging Carol did not constitute an official act of the presidency and we're outside the scope of his employment. This president Substituting for the United States for Trump would leave taxpayers responsible for any possible payout in the case. Carroll's attorney, Roberta Kaplan, said in the statement that the Justice Department appeal was not a surprise because from the start of the case, she said Donald Trump's number one goal has been to avoid discovery and cause delay. She said. It remains to be seen if the new attorney general will agree that Trump was acting within the scope of his employment is president when he defamed her client. Justice Department attorneys say as president Trump had to respond in June of last year to accusations Carol made against him and a book because the claims related to his fitness for office. Carol has said Trump raped her and a luxury department store dressing room a quarter of a century ago after they randomly crossed path and engaged in a conversation. Trump said Carol was totally lying to fell a memoir and that he'd never even met her. Although the 1987 photo shows them and their then spouses at a social event, Trump said the photo captured a moment when he was just standing in a line.

DOJ To Drop Charges Against Former Mexican Official Arrested At Los Angeles International Airport
"Unexpected move by the. Us justice department has thrown the us mexico relationship into the spotlight last month. Former mexican general salvador sent away goes to pay who was arrested in los angeles and face charges of drug trafficking and corruption. Today though a us district court judge allowed prosecutors to drop all charges against wego's opening the door for him to return to mexico and allowing mexican officials to investigate to walk us through this eyebrow raising move. The world's jorges valencia joins us from mexico city or. Hey what was the justice. Department accusing sent way goes of remind us prosecutors. Were saying that he was using his position. As the former defense minister of mexico he was the head of the defense ministry from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen. He said he was using that position to allow an organized crime group known as h. Two to traffic see nited states without interference now appear to have a very solid case. They spent more than a year on this so it was a very big surprise when none other than william bar the. Us attorney general himself issued a statement. Yesterday saying that prosecutors were going to drop all charges and return general. Cf way goes to mexico. Mexico's foreign relations minister monticello eradicate public remarks about this yesterday. Out here saying that. He doesn't see this as a path toward impunity but rather his way in which the department of justice is showing to mexico and showing respect to mexico's military. This feels like such a one. Eighty especially considering sent wiggles was arrested just last month. So what kind of reaction has there been shock bewilderment. I mean for people who are involved in efforts to fight organized crime here in mexico. They're very surprised by this. Because this isn't just about the charges that inflation was facing a disa- court in new york but also about other crimes that many people believe that the government was involved in while he was the defense minister most notably the case of forty three university students. Who went missing in the southern state of guerrero. And we're never found. I spoke with mike v. he'll he is the former director of international operations at the da and he was based here in mexico for more than ten years. Quite frankly in my thirty one year career with the drug enforcement administration. I had never seen anything like this. That says Langage and the most repulsive thing that i've ever seen in the history of us justice. Marco one important piece of context to have is that mexico's courts are are notoriously challenged some estimates Find that nine out of ten crimes in mexico go unpunished so when you have somebody as powerful as the former defense minister general goes if he actually did commit any crimes that he was being accused of in the united states. There is a good chance that he could walk away without facing trial. Are there any theories as to why the. Us justice department would drop these charges. I mean drug trafficking. Mexico remains a high priority for us national security. There seems be more to the story. I should be clear that it is speculation but the prevailing theory is that by returning generals who goes to mexico. The trump administration is returning a favor to the administration of president under manuel lopez or mexico has done a lot of work to prevent people over the past couple of years from migrating from central america toward the united states. It's very difficult to tell. Because by releasing general goes One question is answered but many many many more questions are being asked. The world's jorges valencia in mexico city.

"The side of the aisle over the last several decades. I WANNA. Take a number step not back but aside and talk about your your. We often talk about technology regulation us in compared to European ones because their standards and their policies and their ideas on what is a good policy often differ from here what we have here in the United States can you give me burning me rundown off what has been going on Europe a commission? there were we heard about some big fines for tech companies pretty recently. So the last time that the European Commission broadening to trust suit against Google in two thousand, eighteen, we call it the stupidest into trusted of all time and the reason is that it it did the same thing that DOJ doing here it it asserted that Google and apple don't compete in the operating system market. just because apple doesn't give away it's operating system for free. Google does. So that just gives you a sense of how I think divorce from real world reality the European Commission is in its approach but that's just one example your King Commission has been very active in bringing into trust enforcement actions over the years They've done it against Google but before Google was Microsoft. So after the Microsoft case in the US was settled at Microsoft went through another decade of litigation in. Europe and I it was about Windows Media Player, and the European Commission forced them to create a Europe only version of windows that didn't have Windows Media Player and I think something like they don't have the number was something like sixteen people l. loaded that version. and so you know that was a big to do about nothing was a remedy that didn't change anything in the market because nobody wanted thing that the European Commission thought they needed and then the European Commission went through basically the same with with Microsoft over browsers when Microsoft was alleged to be trying to leverage its operating system So coal monopoly to to try to. Keep whole of the browser market will. Work on hasn't worked. Anywhere. But Europe European Commission was very convinced that unless they forced Microsoft to give consumers the choice.

The big isn't bad that the focus should be solely on consumer welfare. I think our listeners can tell that even within tech freedom, we have different positions and a whole spectrum of political opinions there obviously contributes into how we analyze the situation, but would we all agree on is the legal analysis of this complaint? So let's go into it. Can you walk me through? Let's start with the first point of the first allegation that DOJ makes in their complain. For so two to recap the complaint, it alleges that Google has used anticompetitive techniques to gain dominance in the search market Is Doj recites more than ninety percent plus of general searches in the United States are now made of using Google search engine and that's of. Computers, mobile devices etcetera, and the core underlying allegation is that Google has engaged in has. I guess compelled or maybe I would be a word these manufacturers including including apple, as well as some of the communications companies to pre install Google Google search engine on their devices. on pain of not being able to get the full suite of Google software that they make available into. So many of people outside of the Apple Universe a rely on now or in the case of apple to. Not get the revenue that that Google provides right. So there's two different. Kinds of relationships here just just to make the record clear apple, of course, has its own closed environment Apple agrees to set the default search engine to be Google and apple gets paid for that. and. Then there's Android, which is the system Google develops that is the. World's most popular operating system where the Google requires that if you want to get the suite of. Basic Google apps including me APP store and revenue sharing that you also agree to set google to be default search engine in the browser on. All right. So let's talk about one of the main questions that have been discussed since the complaint was filed and that is the definition of the market that DOJ presented the definition of a market that the law has..
"doj" Discussed on Unconfirmed: Insights and Analysis From the Top Minds in Crypto
"So speaking about the partnerships that the DOJ is pursuing in order to prosecute some of these cases. I noticed in the framework that it says quote, the Department also has robust authority to prosecute virtual assets, service providers and other entities and individuals that violate US law even when they are not located in the United States. So, how can claim this authority to go after entities not in its jurisdiction and not not only count the can claim the authority but how can they? Just from a practical perspective. Sure I'm. Will I fall? I think sometimes surprises, people, but DOJ is. Really aggressive about shooting its jurisdiction even with respect to conduct that occurs raw at end. So outside the crypto contacts, there are any number of cases where DOJ has asserted jurisdiction because there was one email that went through. Because there was one wire that went through a US bank that there were transactions that were conducted in. US dollars. So the long arm of us, law is just that. And DOJ is really white assertive about exercising jurisdiction and there is a lot of statements in the framework about that which I think makes very clear that DOJ is prepared to exercise really near global jurisdiction in the crypto space. For example, with respect to crypto exchanges on the framework says all entities including four located exchanges that do business holing in a substantial part within the United States interest by service in US customers such as servicing US customer. So this could be a situation where The people who the the exchange is located overseas on the servers are located overseas the people who run in are located overseas but it's it's Europe's US customers and. According to DOJ those exchanges have to register with Vincent. In have an Asian to the United States for Bank Secrecy Act recording filing SARS, and the like and for its accepting service process and I actually think bit Max is a pretty good example. Of this because There was the Little, little unclear as to exactly where bit mix Hataf is a coal presence to the extent that is had a physical presence. It was registered in Seychelles with offices in places like Hong Kong in York.

Our reporter deep-sea Rahman has more these civil rights, organizations and other advocacy groups have been having these conversations with facebook behind the scenes for years now they've pushed facebook or a number of issues particularly around hate speech. This call for a boycott is. Animated by frustration after years of these conversations, not going anywhere through a bunch of different initiatives that they're looking at for example, the Ad L. has asked facebook to create a specific content moderation pipeline exclusively for identity based hate speech, so if you are the recipient of hate speech, that's because of your race or your religion.

I have many sources as you do they all say on a scale of one attendance a nine or a ten I don't you know, when I hear that in Washington. I always get my hopes up. I usually get disappointed. What do you think? I don't think we'll be disappointed. I consider some of the sources I've been speaking to a very well versed on these dodgers, saying your sources are better than mine is what you're saying not at all. You're saying, you're, you know, we may we may both be surprised I think even more so than a nine or ten I shine. I think what what the push for this way. They were so adamant all of the congressional members that have seen these documents the people that have been working on these investigations, you know, they know when they look at them whether or not there were national security implications here, whether or not these documents should be made public. Remember, these are people that hold very highly classified security clearances, and what I've been told is that the DOJ was misleading the Trump administration, basically lying about the national security implications here, and they are trying to hide all of the malfeasance that happened within the investigation. Protect that. I protect the DOJ at all costs at the expense of the American people. So what I've been hearing is that these documents are released next week as we hope. Nope. By the president. If he declassified them and allows congress than to share them with the public. The answers will be given this will blow this entire thing wide open and the American people and the rest of the world because this is not just about us. This is about what we represent and how this chaos and infighting is destroying our reputation overseas. So the whole world will know once in all what the. DOJ did well fraud Rosenstein, this is the one that they want. I mean, he appointed Muller. He's got the keys to the kingdom is very powerful right now. I guess he would weigh in on whether they subpoena the president or not how much trouble is he in. I think he's in big trouble. I like I said again. This week McCabe is you know, now, there's a grand jury convened in his case, I got to think that everybody that signed off on this phony visor warrant with the dossiers the information is in trouble everyone, and they're all, and you know, what? And this is going to come out. And this is why the DO Jay's been fighting so hard because it's incredible to believe that deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein is overseeing all of this when he signed off on that fourth Feis would've known everything about the three previous spices.

"We don't arrest our political opponents in this country. He would never could never say that in a million years. I mean, you're right, it's it's kind of gross. He did. He did say in something that I think we could agree with. He said something like the FBI should be the FBI and at the democrat and the Republican BI not the Republican DOJ or democratic DOJ. And that was like, I felt like I'm the only person who heard that part of his answer. You know also what everyone else heard was. Oh, yeah, we're dealing with the democratic DOJ right now, and that's what we have to, you know, to purge them and someone asked about Alex Jones getting getting banned from Twitter and shadow banning. There was like a Thursday. Another question there is not quite acumen on question. Oh, but the lady next to me did tell me that there was stuff going on the government that I didn't know about an that President Trump was doing more than we'll ever know. And I didn't ask a follow up on the people in to hear about jobs. No, no, they didn't and they didn't come to hear about healthcare. They didn't come to hear about education. They didn't come to hear about, you know, the problems that people are facing in their everyday lives. That was weirdly absent. I mean, I've been to town halls a lot. I mean, you guys have to and in the heat of national spotlight. You do get national questions, right? But always you. Can't keep people from asking about local stuff that's like a hallmark of a campaign is that someone's going to ask about, if not like the potholes, they're going to ask about their brother that can't get XYZ service, or you know their kid who has this issue and that just didn't happen. And it felt like this was just performance of kind of Fox News fandom, you know, like Trump cost play more than actual Ted Cruz enthusiasm, other people. I mean, I've say so they were there. We're in disaster about him, but it really was like this weird transference from from Trump and they told me ever. Few people told me, you know, we almost lost him at the convention meaning Ted Cruz when we've seen is that you know Betto is talking about more of nuts and bolts issues. Immigration health care. The economy and Ted Cruz has been doing this sort of cultural, his tweets, everything he's doing. It seems built around these cultural grievances. Do think that what you're. Being at the rallies is a subset of just the passionate people that are showing up or or is Ted Cruz being forced to speak this way and address these things and take on this tenor because that is where the Republican voters in Texas aren't think that's where the based voter, you know, in Texas are I think that there that's what's animating them is when you talk about immigration, talk about it in terms that Trump talks, you know, like Ted did talk about building a wall. I will point out that that is not a local issue in Brown would say it's pretty far away from the border. But you know, he didn't talk about it again in terms of jobs or in terms of like, what do we do about immigration? It was like basically, like, you know, wall and enforcement, and that's not actual policy. You and I know that and people who have to deal with immigration daily basis. No, that and I think that you know there is this weird aspect to the to the town hall to where I felt like he, you know, he is smart guy. I mean, I've interviewed him a few times and he may make people skin crawl, but he's a genuinely intelligent person. And I could see him like trying to get people to wrap up questions before they went off the rails. Like there was this like kind of undercurrent of like I re- please, no one asked me about you a non pleased Espy McEwen on to almost everything because all of the questions had that kind of fever dream, you know, or it to them that they could at any moment become a Sean Hannity monologue..

"Accusers what they might be talking about that well we believe they're talking about is win the president might sit down for voluntary interview with robert muller and it could be that rudy giuliani is extrapolating his timeline from that if you're a member brian just about a month ago we reported that muller wanted to end the obstruction probe around june or july that was when we thought that the president would not sit down for an interview that's when he was irate about the raids on michael cohen's residence and he did not want to sit down and under that moeller thought that he could wrap up the obstruction probe more quickly now that it's looking like he may get a limited voluntary interview maybe agreeing to a set of questions that might be back on the table which would actually extend the timeline not only would they have to prep for the interview do the interview probably sometime around midsummer they would then have more questions they would have to pursue afterwards so there could be a time line his extrapolating here but promises are rarely if ever i've never heard of a promise made to a a defense attorney that this is when we will have this wrapped that's just not the way these things work and there are many leads that we know robert muller is following and his going to turn over every rock and the process with big thanks to our leadoff panel tonight our own julia ainsley newly minted pulitzer prize winner ashley parker and jeremy bash thank you all so much for being with us tonight coming up trump's latest demand of the doj is not his first a look back at the president demand for loyalty from various justice officials why this time however as we've been saying might be different and later more on yet another trump tower meeting in the public realm now involving foreign governments and donald trump junior the eleventh hour on a monday night getting underway.
