"A federal judge has extended an order that allows Seattle police to use chemical weapons for crowd control and get the update from comas. Corwin hey, Judge James Robart is temporary restraining order stops a City hall ban on police use of so called non lethal crowd control measures, including tear gas. In other words, police are free to use those measures while robots restraining order is in effect. Back. In June, the City Council passed a ban on these measures in response to public outcry to have the right to protest and not feel threatened by those charged with your safety. Any chemical weapon makes me feel a lot safer. But the Seattle Times reports the U. S. Department of Justice asked the federal court to prevent Seattle police from implementing the ban. The DOJ argued the band could conflict with the 2012 federal consent decree governing Seattle police bias and excessive use of force. The extended restraining order is in place until June

Twitter Hackers Arrested
"We have learned more about who's behind who is believed to be behind the twitter hack. And you know not some four. Powerful state-sponsored cybercrime gang, just A. we believe a seventeen year. Old Kid His name is all over the tech press. I heard you not wanting to say it on on, Mac. Breglio. So but I do have it in the show notes. To find it I mean. Yeah. You know I come from the School of journalism where you don't say the names of miners were accused of crimes, but apparently nobody else does that. So the AD the local Florida news channel. WFL talks Tim right away. They outed him as Graham Clark from Tampa Bay Florida. We. So they also. Suitably creepy, picture. Of Him. I know in fact in fact before. I reduced in size I. Actually had in the show notes. He looks a little bit like spock at so. got kind of a pointed ear. Is Little bit creepy. And, it's interesting too that his nick is Kirk. So Oh, maybe. Two Years Yeah. So Anyway the the the sad thing is this guy's life is now seriously sparked up. Yeah. He's been charged with felonies relating to computer communications and organized fraud for scamming hundreds of people using compromised account according to a press release from Hillsborough State Attorney. Andrew Warren's office. This guy Grab Clark. Now. Faces Thirty Felony Charges? So we have one count of organized fraud involving more than fifty thousand dollars, seventeen counts of communications, fraud of over three hundred dollars. One count of fraudulent use personal information. For an amount over one, hundred, thousand dollars or thirty or more victims. Ten counts of fraudulent use personal information and one count access to computer or electronic devices without authority and scheming to defraud. So in total thirty counts of felony charges, all of those felonies. So I mean I do feel like unfortunately, there's there's sort of a bit of. overreaction I, I, mean I get it that. This was not good and certainly that the law enforcement wants to send a message like don't do this even if you can Initially, the the initial announcement didn't indicate whether Clark had any partners in crime, but a few hours after the press conference announcement, the world learned that the US. DOJ had also filed charges against two other suspects believed to have helped Clark in this hack. The first of those was identified as Mason Shepherd who who's known as chair Juan nineteen years old living in Bognar Regis in the UK and the other is identified as Nima Fazackerley. Also known as Rolex twenty, two year, old residing in Orlando Florida. The US Attorney Anderson said there is a false belief within the criminal hacker community that attacks like the twitter hack can be perpetrated anonymously and without consequence today's charging announcement demonstrates thus I think an example has been meeting is being made. That, the elation of nefarious hacking into a secure environment for fun or profit will be short lived. Criminal conduct over the Internet may feel stealthy to the people who perpetrated, but there's nothing stealthy about it. In particular. He said, I want to say to would be offenders break the law Ed. We will find you please. So exactly the kind of thing hackers go. knows. That's GonNa, really scare me, I remember when I was a teenager. And in Fact Leo, did this did I? You know I was always a good kid. But oh, to be seventeen and have done Brazi network in front of me. Yeah. Yeah. Twitter early, fairly clever. Because, well, go ahead because it the way did it was kind of kind of interesting. Yeah. So for their part twitter disclosed a bit more about the nature of the attacks. They said that the that the phone based social engineering attack allowed the attackers to obtain the credentials of a limited set of employees, which then made it possible to gain access to twitter's internal. Internal Network and support tools although not all of those employees were who are initially targeted had permissions to use account management tools. The attackers you know apparently, just actually just Graham was able to use their credentials to then access twitter's internal systems and gain information about twitter's processes that expanded knowledge then enabled the attackers to target additional employees who did have access to twitter's privileged account support tools. Reuters also had reported something that I had not seen elsewhere, which was that as of Earlier. This year. More than a thousand twitter employees and contractors had access to twitter's in tools and could change user account settings in hand control over to others a thousand. And this was a key. To former twitter employees. Well as we know such widespread access makes it difficult if not impossible to defend against the sort of hacking that occurred.

Seattle Mayor Believes Federal Deployments Are Part Of A Darker Political Goal
"Kinds of tensions in Seattle. Clashes between protesters and police turned violent last weekend, but Seattle's Democratic mayor, Jenny Durkin, told the Department of Homeland Security she did not want federal agents sent into her city. She later discovered a force was deployed and put on standby. Now they have left. Mayor Durkin spoke with our co host, Rachel Martin, about why she and other mayors feel these federal deployments. Part of a bigger, darker political goal. We have, like any other city. We have public safety challenges. But our public safety challenges have been made significantly worse by this president's actions in his words, the dinner in level of criminal activity. We're really deteriorated after the president started tweeting about it, and it was a subject to have Fox coverage every night. So we have seen and I've talked to mayors across the country the same thing when the president actually tweets, and it's not my words saying he's targeting death City is run by Democrats. He's openly admitted it and tweeted about it. Um And I think that that is really a chilling prospect of a president. United States, which is federal resource is for political purposes. The Department of Justice has said that there is an expansion happening right that all of this the deployment of federal agents to a variety of cities Now we're seeing Chicago Albuquerque, Kansas City now Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland. This is all part of so called Operation legend that this has to do with gun violence, quelling gun violence in these cities helping solve murders. This's the DOJ zone characteristic of what this operation is about. I guess I'm hoping you can clarify for me. Is this operation legend something that's happening? Adjacent, separate from from the agents that had been deployed to Portland. And for a couple of days, at least this standby force to Seattle. I actually think they're using it as camouflage. There are ongoing task force in major cities, the deal with gun violence and with gang violence and other violent crime. We had him in Seattle and I worked on him is U. S attorney I know I've spoken with the mayor of Chicago and Albuquerque, and they have a strong collaborative approach with federal law enforcement. It is very rare. If it all federal law enforcement will surge agents to a city to deal with public safety threats that are normally handled by city or state officials. Without talking to or working with local officials. You have described what President Trump is doing as being a political ploy to play his own base ahead of the election into some kind of law and order message. As as a former U. S attorney for the Western District of Washington is anything he's doing or the federal government at his behest illegal. I think it could be unconstitutional. Under the 11th Amendment. Remember, public safety is generally reserved to the states and to their cities, a subdivision of the states by our Constitution. There's also restrictions on the powers that federal law enforcement have and what they can enforce. They generally cannot room the streets of a city in enforce city or state law. But the other thing I will say, though it is unprecedented for federal authorities to take this level of approach for local jurisdictions in cities and Serge Federal resource is in them to take over public safety duties like arresting people. Police protesters. And I've said it before. I know some people think it's it sounds overdramatic, but to me, it looks like a dry run for martial law. And if we see these kinds of federal agents put into places where there's voting right concerns I'm very concerned about what it could do to suppress the vote in America. Say more about that. You're worried that in places where there might be concerns about whether or not people get access to the polls, right? I mean, if you look at it now, the places that that they're sending these Federal agents are primarily in places where there are significant protests against police violence and for racial equity. And it doesn't take much of a lead to also used those agents to say You're protecting the poles but have federal agents in and around polling places, too. Spite against fraud when really a suppression? I think we need a very clear commitment in advance of the election that general law enforcement are not going to be used as some kind of super police. In key battleground states in around you places. You've been talking with different mayor's around the country. Your counterparts in different states. Is that the kind of thing that has come up in conversation with them it has come up. I will tell you were focused day to day on dealing with the crisis in our city. But this kind of action when we feel happening in so many cities across your country, it gives all of us a grave concern is where it is. Jenny Durkan is the mayor of Seattle. We appreciate your time. Thank you for having me

Their endowments on the median endowment is about half the size at hp us as it is at other institutions, spelman and Morehouse are among the best funded.

But some tech companies have been on the receiving end of protests and criticism as well several civil rights groups are encouraging big advertisers to pull spending from facebook campaign includes the Anti Defamation League and the end of Lacey Pe- they're protesting. What they say is facebook's failure to make its platform west hostile. 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. Experts in hate speech would handle the issue. That's one example another example would be to offer more transparency about the kinds of hate speech. They find in detect and across platform. I think they are looking for both more information. From the company at a high level, but also more enforcement. FACEBOOK has said it's taken significant strides to cut back on hate speech, but acknowledged that there's always more work to do. These civil rights groups aren't the only ones asking facebook and other Internet companies to do more. The DOJ has proposed new rules governing their liability for the content on their platform. We'll talk more about that after the break. When the world is at a standstill.

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

The US Justice Department is investigating sexual abuse within US Olympic organizations the following the case against former national gymnastics team Dr Larry Nassar currently serving ineffective life sentence for sexually assaulting women and girls. The Federal Inquiry Creek comes ahead of the two thousand twenty Olympics in Tokyo joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien Rebecca. This seems like a widespread investigation allegation which groups have you found that are under investigation right now by the Justice Department so it is a wide ranging investigation and it's actually I think best thought of as multiple investigations that interconnect and the important bodies to think about here are the US Olympic Committee the Center for Safe Sport USA gymnastics and and USA Taekwondo and the FBI which is sort of a side issue but think of it as like a layer cake right this mitigation which is being led by multiple offices offices in the Justice Department along with irs criminal investigators is looking at bad actors who are coaches or doctors in the gym level of various Olympic Sports. It's across the United States and then secondarily. There's an investigation into potential cover ups and maybe financial and business wrongdoing by the national governing bodies are N. G. Bees like USA gymnastics or USA Taekwondo and the third level here. Is You limit committee to the big overarching organization Asian. They're looking you know as well their response to sexual abuse allegations another potential financial wrongdoings now how big of an impact did the Larry Nassar Sir case have on the current investigations. This was pretty blockbuster case shook up the world of gymnastics in the Olympics too large extent what I think I mean the Larry Nassar case it slowly began building came first surfaced right after the Rio Olympics more than three years ago now and what I find incredible is that what the Nassar case not only did it first of all you know hundreds of women came forward with allegations but it really also opened shed light on all these other cases like in USA taekwondo or there had been allegations and some mm cases convictions of coaches that had kind of been lost to history and these this repeated. There's a trend over decades of misconduct induct and sex-abuse in a number of different sports that no one really had paid close attention to on a grand scale so the national case really not only was had a tremendous impact on on gymnastics in the Olympic Committee but it also just opened the floodgates as it were now we are looking ahead to the twenty twenty games in Tokyo what under the implications for the US Olympic system as we have been talking about the Nassar case did cause a lot of damage to the institution yet national case did a lot of damage image to USA gymnastics but it also had some blowback on the US Olympic Committee because of executives there who were informed of it and didn't necessarily take steps that many people in the public thing you know they they didn't talk about it more publicly. They didn't take steps to advance the investigation and they leave with egging their face and what is important about these investigations. I the thing is that they show the continued legal pressure on the USOC. There's political pressure with also legal and potentially criminal pressure on some of the executives or former executives of these organizations and going into twenty twenty. They're going to want to resolve this. I mean not only do you. WanNa make sure people are safe going to the Olympics but also it looks bad if the USOC he is heading to the next Olympics with this cloud of uncertainty and investigations over their head and of course you know in nine years they're going to be hosting the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles so oh you know we'll see how they resolve this Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien. Thank you so much thank you..

"The internet by the whistle blower website, WikiLeaks dot org, and they have more some analysts comparing them to the Pentagon papers tonight after violent protests that have lasted for weeks. The Tunisian government has fallen the president has fled and some are calling this the first Wiki leaks revolution the first WikiLeaks revolution. Now impactful journalism is obviously not a defense to other alleged crimes, but it was leaks like that which one Wiki leaks the organization a range of journalistic awards, the Obama administration's DOJ never indicted WikiLeaks publicly despite its opposition to how they ran. And it reviewed what appear to be similar conduct regarding this twenty two an issue because they indicted as I mentioned Chelsea Manning, and they reviewed a case against Assange. And concluded it was not warranted. As for the person who gave the information to WikiLeaks, President Obama ultra. Commuted her sentence saying she took responsibility for what was criminal leaking. She shouldn't spend too much time in jail. With respect to Chelsea Manning. I looked at the particulars of this case, I felt that in light of all the circumstances of that commuting her sentence was entirely appropriate. She took responsibility for her crime. That the sentence that she received was. Very disproportional disproportionate relative to what? Other leakers had received. Why am I telling you all this right now because there is a lot of context like a lot for the Trump DOJ going forward here on these actions from nine years ago that the Obama DOJ did not deem chargeable case against us, orange could get stronger, there could be other counts based on other secret evidence. We don't have tonight. We know Bob Muller wanted a lot more from as do the feds on many many topics but working with what we have. Now, the indictment unsealed today doesn't show Assange actually, stealing anything or coordinating with foreign spies or doing espionage. It's a single count of conspiring to do something that allegedly did not happen which makes the indictment unaggressive and potentially chilling document for journalists in the US or abroad chose this leaker manning telling us to orange after this upload, that's all I really have got left and then Assange pushes for more leaks. Saying curious is never run dry in my experience, the kind of communication that some reporters have with sources, and then it'll Jesus. Cross the line that reporters are not supposed to cross offering help with potentially stealing itself to try to crack a password now doesn't allege at least what we got today that they succeeded that sounds bad then that single bad part. I want you to know is also the whole case the allegation section of this indictment runs two and a half pages. The whole thing the entire charges are six pages. It would be easy to you. This case only through the US government lends. And if you hear government officials from many parties, that's what you'll hear us Aaj took on the US government published leaks and undercut it. They don't like that. They have every right to voice their opposition to that. You could also view this only from the mystery lands and say man, Julian Assange up ended the two thousand sixteen election. What does he know about Putin and collusion and things that even the mole report may not answer? Let's get him here and interview, but there's also tonight a non-partisan lens of freedom of information. What checks should exist on the Trump administration charging extraditing a publisher? Offer ceiling espionage, but for one conspiracy count about how he tried to help a source, and whether that cost align that lens, I think is part of why the Obama Justice department was careful a point that actually recently discussed with their colder. This was last month, which we now know is a time period when Assange had been indicted under seal, but that information was not public. Now, there is an open case that appears to be looking at WikiLeaks for charges should a publisher like that the open to charges by the US government..

"I want the guys that are on my side baby off course of court folks. The McCarthy piece explains at all right. Why would you hire the DOJ people if you thought that was the DOJ conflict? Because you need people who are aware of the malfeasance you're trying to sweep up. That's why you don't want a bunch of heartland American state prosecutors coming in there and looking at the facts object. Give me a break, don't be stupid talking to you. I'm talking to the media people. Secondly, why are partisan hacks? Because this is a partisan attack. The answer is a very simple OXFAM's razor folks. Keep it simple stupid. Why higher DOJ people because they're hiding DOJ malfeasance, why higher partisan hacks, because it's a partisan attack. No further explanation needed. Another point on this that McCarthy brings up, which is a beautiful one. He says, if there was such a DOJ conflict yet, Muller hired DOJ people anyway. Joe, why does he keep referring cases back into the DOJ. Folks, the Russian GRU case. Remember we got these Russian GRU military officials, Joe, we got with this. Remember the detailed indictment hacking into the US election data system trying to get information from the DNC. Remember that diamond everybody was blown away the media. All we got the Russia's folks. That case was referred back to the DOJ national security division. Why. Why. Come again. The whole premise, the whole this. Why? I'm so mad at Andy joking, I wanted to think of this. The whole premise is that the OJ can't handle this because there's a conflict. So what is Muller do the biggest indictment we have so far these Russian military, he he sends right back to the. Roce. I thought there was a conflict. This is supposed to be about Russian collusion yet. You get the Russians at where does it go right back to the DOJ. Oh. Not only that. Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen is personal lawyer. You would think would have intimate knowledge of a Russian collusion scandal if it were to occur? It did what happens is case show. It was referred back into the DOJ. This other district. This is the craziest thing I have ever heard. The craziest thing I've ever heard. Finally, he breaks up one final really, really good point in the peace. How rod Rosenstein is hiding. The there were two. There was an initial appointing of the special counsel Joe looking into Russian collusion. There's also a supplemental memo issued on August second 2017 that supplemental memo still remains classified. Only pieces of it is leaked of leaked out. So just to be clear, a lot of the liberals are saying, okay, remember the two points. We're making huge. Oh, there's a conflict in the DOJ which I've just the bunked which is nonsense. They just want to sweep the DOJ stuff under the rug. The second point is at a specific crime needs to be named and has been in the past, even though it's not mandated. That's been the history, but no crimes beneath here. The liberal comeback to point number two is that, oh, no, no, no. There's a crime name, but it's in the second letter. The reclassification of the investigation by rod Rosenstein issued August second, two thousand seven. The supplemental memo Joe. Well, Andy McCarthy brings up a great point. Why are they hide in that? Why are they still classifying that thing? He's like, hey, listen, you could hide the names. You know, if you have names in there, you don't want let out then fine, but that should be released. You always some explanation as to what this crime is, right? Yeah, but he brings up a terrific point saying is the real information in that supplemental memo. Joe issued August second, twenty seventeen use the clarify this alleged crime against the Trump team. This is something I had thought of before I should've said. He says, is it the dossier? Is it again the information in the dossier, again, that appeared in the Pfizer that appeared with Bruce or that appear in the FBI ladies and gentlemen, you know how devastating this would be. It would take apart and dismantle the entire special counsel. Investigation, Donald Trump should demand that that supplemental memo be declassified. And I'm telling you right now if there is any information from this now wholly discredited, dossier in that supplemental memo outlining quote crimes that were just made up Joe man. We have another hard core problem going on here. Declassify that memo to and if Rosenstein can't back it up with actual crimes, we better find out real quick. It's my buddy, say right quick..

"All right as we continue Sydney Powell, David, Sean, and Sara Carter, Sarah. What if we all these things become unredacted? You know, I I haven't seen these items myself. 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. If he did making decisions about what to release or not release and some of it impacts him absolutely of interest. They write their Sarah Carter.

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..

"Even if it was five days show me what you got in my lawyer's office you've got five days or else what what gives him the power to do that you would think if he i mean ultimately if he has the power to fi to fire mueller and i understood that he can actually order the doj to reward the special counsel re regulations to allow him to directly fire being that ultimately you know he's he's headed doj if he has that ability you would think if anything he has ability you know to to order something like that and then it gives him cover to whoever whoever's in the doj you water this is this is this something that you read somewhere somebody suggesting trump could do this i saw i saw something online is just doing as a curiosity say can can the candy trump or president fire fire special counsel directly and there was there was some some person giving some information out there that saying technically no regulations require there'd be a crime and whoever points the special counsel asked him point him to that crime there's no crime here was a loose sedated by by rosenstein who appointed sessions recused so now we've got this august second memo from rosenstein going back words oh by the way i did send him a memo i sent my mom and i told him to do this or that is strictly a cya if if if targets of investigations because their presidents and run the executive branch could tell any investigator you've got five days to put up or shut up or else then it would have happened a long ago presidents don't have the power to shut these down that's why they've firing muller and by the way what he's talking about the president can't call muller and say you're gone he's gonna have rosenstein doing if rosenstein refused he'd fire rosenstein and whoever replaced rosenstein would have to do it that guy refused to do it trump would fire him until he found somebody that would fire muller the argument is does trump have the authority to.

"The doj that was really in charge of the investigations and and had a lot of say he was also very close to sally yates who you know was was fired by president trump when she refused to basically adhere to his immigration policy at the time allotment actually left the doj in march he was a long longtime served with the department this past march and nobody knew nobody really knew about it it was it was really kind of quiet he kind of walked off into the night but he was mentioned often not a and an according to congressional sources that i've spoken with in text messages between peter struck and lisa page some of which have already been revealed and and some of which are in my story and i don't think a lot of people paid a lot attention to what was going on with walkman and what was going on with the fbi particularly when they had no exposure to these text messages and now we see that there was actually conflict and and they were they were after each other the fbi and the doj on trying to get these faisal warrants particularly the vice a warrant on carter page in october which eventually he got a they got in october nineteenth two thousand sixteen but before that there was a lot of push and pull between the fbi and the fbi was really strong arming people within hr words new communications that were discovered by congressional investigators show that the fbi was improperly coordinating with the department of justice officials in an effort to pressure those officials to expedite the foreign intelligence surveillance warrant against the trump associate carter page and house oversight government reform committee these text messages between struck and page once again we're discussing the fbi's difficulty in getting that warrant to spy on page explain how that dovetails into laughlin well so laugh laugh men then text messages back and forth i mean and i guess discusses this not text messages but discusses this with peter struck and peter struck then text messages lisa page and tell them you know hey look i've been dealing with lachman on this he's really aggravating me that was in march and then back and then cambria text messages her again and said you know what i'm hearing from wasserman that they're not happy with how we've handled this and they're kind of.

"Right you choose the most interesting right right i'm is this similar to what you would do doj new dj's quite different so getting back to the subpoena at doj actually a little known fact is at doj there's a policy actually against issuing targets subpoenas at all oh interesting so for example if you're the target of a criminal investigation at the justice department are policy or not already more because i'm no longer at the government but the doj's policy is that prosecutors should not be issuing subpoenas to entities they view as targets of investigations now the sec doesn't have that same restriction but still i do want to emphasize that a subpoena is just a way for the government to get information so when i was a federal prosecutor i s you'd hundreds if not thousands of subpoenas in my time and you know very very few of those actually turned into investigations or cases and so you feel like maybe the panic that we're seeing in the crypto space is a little bit more like fud fear uncertainty doubt i think there's a little of that laura but i mean again not to minimize the impact that an sec subpoena does have on an entity or an individual of particularly for individuals or entities that aren't familiar with interacting with enforcement bodies regulators i don't want to minimize the seriousness or you know what they might be feeling but i really doubt what we're going to see is eighty different ico actions just because of that number of subpoenas being reported as having gone out that's that's my only point so another action that we saw recently from the government was a letter from vinson and i know also some people in the community were freaking out about that because apparently it has some implications with the bank secrecy act where the penalties can be quite severe if you violate that so what was your take on that vincent letter you're right the penalties for violating the bank secrecy actor bs as it's called can be even criminal and they can be really stiff monetary penalties you're talking about twenty five thousand dollars a day provide asian so they can really add up but that said might take on the recent fincen letter was i think that it's not a big deal as some people are making in the space and i'll tell you why i mean i recently heard.

"To russia's interference in that election metaphor usual unusual filing because it is also said that the deputy attorney who appointed muller last may had no authority to grant the special council carte blanche to investigating pursue criminal charges in connection with anything that they stumble across while investigating no matter how remote from the examination of the whole russia election meddling because remember he was charged back in october of last year along with a former campaign aide rick gales and is asking the court to nullify the charges against him and stop the investigation from overreaching is what they're calling it now what what happens in the suit will be interesting and and where is the time line as to when the investigation is over because this has been a gosh this has been a long investigation right manafort said in the lawsuit that federal prosecutors and fbi agents interviewed him in 2014 to talk about is consulting abroad as part of the effort to assist the government of the ukraine to recover stolen property and then he's saying look and then two years later i'm charged with conduct that i voluntarily disclosed so how is that he sing how's that voluntarily disclosed this and then you're fling it against me so one to watch is going to be what happens in this court it it it in this lawsuit with the doj because of uh certainly not the lack of resources to keep pursuing it and what the doj jay rather comes up with and what happens with this lawsuit if it actually goes any place or not and speaking of going places because they got a few emails from some of you earlier in the day a check the mail bag and review the mailbag coming up next but one concerns concerns out there apparently some of you are traveling back had extra days off um shook the week after off christmas some people do that and in an effort to try to get back to where you're going um and you know it's just um crazy that it's just crazy that these people now in someplace really didn't think they work owing to be stuck our stock so for example runways at charleston international airport closed the.
