Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman may initially have a rough road in Hollywood after cheating scheme

"The parents charged today despite already being able to give their children every legitimate advantage in college admissions game instead chose to corrupt illegally manipulate the system for their benefit. We're not talking about donating the building. So that a schools more likely to take your son or daughter, we're talking about deception and fraud fake test scores fake athletic credentials, fake, photographs bribed college officials. Well, that's federal prosecutor Andrew. Lulling yesterday talking about the federal indictment that has accused dozens of wealthy. Parents college coaches in college prep executives in a nationwide college admissions scam. The US attorney Andrew says parents who included actresses the liberty Huffman and Lori Laughlin cheated to get their kids into prestigious schools. What a. Mind boggling story, this is for a variety of different angles. Eric first off the fact that Felicity Huffman is married to William Macy. And William Macy was in the courtroom. And I did notice it. Many many in the media said the actor in shameless. Yeah. Where he plays a con, man. And then again to be clear, he wasn't right. He he wasn't arrested. Even though he was involved in setting up a lot. He was not actually arrested now Laurie Lachlan's husband. He was million dollar bond for for him. William Macy was not even though he was part of the conversations that were actually a going out. Apparently, according to some of the indictments, but he was in the courtroom. He was taking notes, and when a Fox News reporter asked if you would like to comment, he said, no. That in itself just to see William Macy in a courtroom in this type of situation, I would have paid money to see. And you know, it's the question is. How far does this go? How big of a problem is this how widespread? Because there are plenty of people with money, and they have names that you would know. I mean that in fact is the case with some of those according to you that were involved here. But. Any? Well. Okay. Now, take it to the level of apparent was willing to put twenty five thousand dollars on credit cards. In order to get their child special access. The point being is that if it was this involved went according to the authorities. This went from two thousand eleven all the way up until just last month. Then if if it was this widespread that means there was that kind of market and demand for it. Now the words if you've got enough money, you can get your kid in the school, and you don't have to donate a library or something to do it. So I I do wonder how far this how widespread this problem is. Now authorities had not responded as to why William Macy was was not arrested. The documents stated that a cooperating witness met with Huffman and her husband actor William Macy at their Los Angeles, home and explain to them that he controlled a testing center and could have someone secretly change their daughters answers, the person told investigators a couple of greed to the plan. The judge has Tuchman. I'm not asking you to admit or deny the charges against you. But you understand what the government claims you. Did she replied, yes? When you see that because that was the specific charge against them. Lori lachlan's. Kid that was that was mind boggling itself because what they did was they wanted to and they paid five hundred thousand dollars. To pretend that their kids were in crew that their daughters were in the. For rowing, whatever you wanna call it. When they weren't in order to get them into college. And I believe they paid was a five hundred thousand wasn't. Yeah. Up in paid fifteen thousand dollars, which you've disguises they will donation people have already said, well, they're going to get is going to get her. Look if the feds were involved in it if they put that as a charitable donation, the IRS will get them for it. Believe me federal prosecutors in a case like this. I guarantee you they dot every I and cross every t. Been interesting when you've had federal prosecutors talk about if they're found guilty, what kind of jail time will they get. Well. Profile case, they spent a lot of resources cases each of them. But they spend a lot of resources. You can imagine a prosecutor that is looking to make an example out of celebrities and rich people in general, right because people in general, they were just a two people that, you know, right? There was a guy what heads a law firm. He was a chairman of a of a high profile law firm, and he according to the allegations he donated four hundred thousand dollars to a bogus charity. And that money was file of funneled to the then head coach of the of tennis there at Georgetown. Again, according to the allegations, but look at the amounts of money. I mean there is unless you're delivering it in a duffel bag leaving it under a bridge somewhere. There's a chain of events involving a number of people in order to make that happen. How is it that you believe you're gonna get away with it? I that's ever that. I just can't imagine that stupidity. It goes beyond era. That's where you know lorry. Lachlan's husband one million dollar bond for Felicity Huffman. It was two hundred fifty but they said the money the amount of money actually increases the seriousness of the crime. And because Felicity Huffman was only fifteen thousand and Laurie a Lachlan's and her husband was five hundred thousand that they would probably end up doing more time. But the coaches that were involved in this or the testing centers or the consultant or the people that actually gave the SAT's and by the way, they said that a lot of these parents actually got notes from therapist stating that their children needed to take the SAT or the ACT privately with a Proctor because of whatever affliction they had. And those proctors were the ones that cheated. And then change the answers to ensure that these students got a higher SAT or an ACT on it. Now, many of those coaches and Proctor and whoever was involved in it the guy who had the one consulting company. They've all been charged with racketeering. And you could have multi bracket tearing that could be very serious jail time, we were reading Dan Abrahams law and crime, and one of the former prosecutors were saying that for example, that those crimes were much more serious racketeering charges. But they still said that Laughlin if she decided to go to court and was found guilty on it could get over forty months in prison because of it. Yeah. So you're talking three to four years of a of a prison sentence, and maybe two to three years, even if she came to some kind of deal on it. Yeah. Eighteen to twenty four months for Felicity of Felicity Huffman, she could possibly get. Yeah. I am. And I also wonder too. What what they are? Investigators are looking at in terms of the schools involved. And the and how this was put together, right? Who who in what position? Would have created the opportunity for this kind of crime that situation because when you when you get the same thing, how do you how do you get to the point of even dealing with these people are finding out that they exist because at least in one case you had someone asking. One of those accused that was asking the person that was facilitating this what does the school think about it? And the response was no school has don't school doesn't know. And so you don't it's if but if there is a tremendous opportunity, these huge gaps holes where individuals can do this. They have that kind of influence. Then you can bet that especially when it comes to federal money going to universities. There's likely to be some kind of other move on the university level, and that is to ensure that there is a process some kind of oversight. And maybe even changing the process of how how students. Get on board. And and by what recommendation? You know, you, and I were talking about the whole scholarship thing that involves something very different. And a number of people are involved when it comes to write those types of scholarships and this wasn't about scholarships. But the point being is that there's a great number of people involved a group of people involved in determining who is going to qualify for those scholarships. So when it when it comes to getting access to those schools someone being getting accepted to that school, and you have one or two people making that decision. That's not a small thing. I mean, there's a reason they paid that kind of money according to the allegations. Anyway, there was a reason they were willing to pay that kind of money the prestige. But where that were that exists then there is an opportunity for a black market, which is essentially what you're seeing here approach to to a solution. Well, you asked the question of we just touched the surface. On this. Another question. I guess is. When you see that William Macy, the actor was actually involved with his wife on setting the whole thing up. There is a question as to why she was arrested, and he was not. And I think federal prosecutors will eventually answer that question. Well, I I read where a number of experts were were commenting on that. And and basically comes down to culpability what you have. That's that really brings him into the actual crime. I was just a series of questions and conversations. Did he write a check did shake write the check? Right. She transfer the money were they asking questions or were they saying, hey, we want to do this. And we know it's illegal. So we'd like you to help us to this. There's a difference because one's harder to prove that there is a conspiracy or they were conspiring to do something and the other one is pretty clear that they're conspiring to do something illegal. It'd just be interesting to see it. What the federal prosecutors actually say. Because if they were both talking to the person, and they both had knowledge of it. If they never charge have they likely won't say anything about why they didn't. Well, the I guess reporters will ask the question be interesting to see if somebody eventually asked that question, whether it's on a new show vibe years from now, what will that response be as to why they went after her what makes her culpable of the crime and not him. If he knew about it and was involved in the conspiracy is it that she wrote the check the actual check because that. She's charged with what fraud and mail fraud is part of it. Yeah. So if you set.

Man shouts 'Heil Hitler, Heil Trump' at 'Fiddler on the Roof' show

"Yelled Heil Hitler, trumpet fiddler on the roof. Sean Baltimore, sparking fear in the audience. ABC news man, shouted Heil, Hitler, high all Trump during intermission at fiddler on the roof performance USA today, man, shouts Heil Hitler. How Trump as fiddler on the roof performance in Baltimore. Media, of course, Trump supporter. Trump supporter interrupts fiddler on the roof performance shouting, high out Hitler, higher Trump CBS witness man, shouts Heil, Hitler Heil Trump during performance of fiddler on the roof. That's just a taste not rights at Breitbart. But if you can see to outlets, the New York Post, and the far left media chose to assume the man was a Trump supporter when police say the opposite is true. This is why they cherry pick among other places media matters, which is a radical left-wing funded organization that poses under a charitable nomenclature tax exempt. But no investigative reporters went to investigate how that organization could be tax exempt. The media matters. Take down the words people who call the president Hitler. No. All the other names. They call them. No. Does media count the number of times the president's been called Hitler on real cable channels. No. Some of the outlets above do. Not even bother to report the truth. He writes about the man being a Trump hater. In fact, he says media and CBS said he was a Trump supporter. It could be that the information was not available to them at the time. But a good faith search found. No updated stories with this. The man yelled Heil Hitler. He's quoting how Trump during a theater performance fiddler on the roof. This week reportedly said he made the statements because the production reminded him of his hatred of President Trump Anthony m Dan Lewis, the second fifty eight tall Baltimore police. He yelled the slogans because the final scene before intermission reminded him how much he despises the president. The excerpt above is from the hill newspaper, the only outlet he says, I could find with a factual headline. Man said he yelled Heil, Hitler Trump during fiddler on the roof because of hatred for Trump was the hill newspaper headline. The far left CNN and New York Times actually do report the truth about the man's anti Trump activism, but berry that truth beneath four and eight paragraphs respectively much as the New York Times buried the holocaust, by the way. Another report media. Does it make even though I've talked about that endlessly? So the media headline was Trump supporter interrupts fiddler on the roof performance shouting Heil, Hitler, Trump when it was a Trump hater not what I've only barely begun to look. At this left-wing site that Dan Abrahams has created. But we'll look some more. Now, they're on our radar. And now, we know they regurgitate mostly what they get from media matters and other sites. They really don't do any independent reportings best as I can tell. And I assume Brian Stelter being a dolt in a full like he is talking about places like that. And we really shouldn't run with this stuff. Then don't run with it. Your head. I want to encourage the president tonight urged the president tonight to go ahead and trigger the national emergencies act. You're going to have to do it. Anyway. And you'll hear the geniuses on radio and TV say, well the courts will overturn it. So the president will get anything anyway. Okay. Well, so be it. But he's the president. And he has to do what presidents are able to do. He can't predict what courts are going to do. And he doesn't get a vote on the supreme court. I don't understand why we're so timid passive. Why that court is likely to do X is that how the left works. No, it's not how the left works. It's obvious Pelosi and the Democrats have absolutely no interest in working with him. Even when he proposes a Bill that is very mild. And the White House. It says here in the CNN piece is

"Ladies and gentlemen, number one. Charges are allegations. To remind the clowns at CNN and MSNBC and some clowns all over the other networks. These are charges. Made by a prosecutor's office, which has been tainted politically they haven't been tested. Nobody's had their due process rights yet. And the media running around like this is it now we've got Trump for the four thousand th time. You don't have anybody. When you read through this indictment, and I won't bore you by reading sentence for special percents. That's out there. If you want to read it, but I've read it. Here's what we do know. Mr. Mueller was appointed to investigate collusion with Russia. The problem is there was no collusion with Russia on the Trump side only on the Hillary side he is decided to immunize Hillary and her Sarah gates. He doesn't want to see their emails or texts. It has a question any them in front of his grand jury. See that's not as mission. Now expands his mission left, and right, but he never expanded to include Hillary and her ilk. I it's important to know. What's not in this indictment? No Russian collusion. By stone whatsoever. None. Stone didn't steal any the DNC emails. He didn't have any direct access to them. So he was not involved in that. Even contacting our efforts to contact WikiLeaks Assange and so forth, perfectly legal. So once again, we have a situation where the issues that supposedly under investigation. Are not relevant to the indictment despite what clowns like Dan Abrahams say and Jeff Toobin to real big, time fools. Now what he's charged with. Is multiple times giving false statements to congress. What he's charged with is trying to influence, of course, the. A witness. Then he's charged with obstruction. Some of the charges are exceedingly weak. But then I got to thinking. John Brennan lied to congress. Nobody charged him with anything. James clapper. Lied to congress. Nobody ever charged him with anything. Eric Holder was held in contempt by congress. Nobody ever charged him with anything. Why is that? All of a sudden all these charges for people who are lying to congress that saying they're not earned. I'm just saying. The cow justices applied here. Luckily for congress. They can't be charged for lying to us. Because our prisons will be would be filled with members of congress. But let's not full ourselves. This isn't about Roger stone. It's not about Paul Manafort. It's not even about retired Lieutenant General Mike Flynn. It's not about any of them. It's an attempt to destroy the president. The defeat him in reelection. They create arguments hooks at radical leftists who run these various committees and hold onto in an effort to try and impeach the president of the United States. I look at what's taking place now with this so-called government shutdown, and it's going to be open for three weeks. This is all phony drama. Phony drama. But you learn a lot about it. You learn about Nancy Pelosi. That she is a radical ideologue and the whole country could burn down. And it doesn't matter to her hers is a pursuit of power. And you look at Chuck Schumer. No different. Our borders are wide open. People are coming here who shouldn't be here. There should be an urgency to secure the border, and there's.

"One three one one. So, ladies and gentlemen. Why is it the Dan Abrahams? And his little media empire. Why is it the, Dan Abrahams and media? I do not count the number of times, the president of the United States has been referred to as Hitler on cable TV. Why is it that Dan Abrahams in media do not count the number of times, the president has been called a racist on cable TV? Why is it that aunt, Dan? Abramson media, do not count the number of times that the president of the United States been referred to a Stalin are Mazzoleni or a Nazi or Neo Nazi or white supremacist or racist on cable TV, I'll tell you why. Because it's a left wing crap website. That's why a few young conservatives over there. That's it. That's just for show. And then they have a website Fulla. Tommy christopher's. Dumbest doorknobs regurgitate what you expect them to regurgitate. And basically steal stuff off the internet. Like my show. He hey, Frank wet. Tommy, look at this candidate number at any doesn't even get it. That's the thing. He's an idiot. And I was waiting for somebody to get hooked. And it's time. He christopher. I mean, I'm hoping that somebody like Chris Cuomo. Don lemon Jake. Nah, it's Tommy Christopher. Who I'm sure it's going to have a long great career in journalism. Yes. Bringing editors and producers their coffee. Dan abrahams. You don't know how to hire people. Now, we're going to keep an eye on mediate and see how even-handed they are. We will sit and we will wait probably forever. To see if they have any of their math petitions. Count the number of times, the president the United States has been referred to. As a killer of six million Jews. As a killer. A forty million people. We're going to wait to see. If media media. We're going to wait to see. How they count and how they present their information. You know, there is a discussion over there at CNN believe it or not. This guy Brian Stelter, who's I real load. Maybe people should stop looking at the internet. And he's talking about. These rumors start and these mob action star and he's boycotts to all this stuff. AM? Maybe journalists shouldn't really go over there. I'm not saying everybody should should withdraw. But you know, and not the editors in so far. But maybe that maybe the journalists should stop. And when you look at a site like media, you understand it. But they shouldn't stop looking at the internet. They should start using their heads. If your claim to be a journalist or new site that act like it. Act like. If you're a journalist, and you work for news organization that stop acting like somebody who gives her opinion. Then stop conflating your opinion with news. You know, what you're doing Brian stopper? You know, what you're doing Jake tapper? You know what you're doing Chris Cuomo. You know what you're doing? Don lemon. You know, what you're doing Dan Abrahams? You know what you're doing? Just stop doing it. Try to have some intellectual honesty. Rather than intellectual corruptions try to have some integrity. But the news is too boring. You see? The fact that China's on the move the fact that Russia's on the move the fact that we have a big story in the free beacon, then I'll get to later that Iran's going to have a massive military exercise aimed at Israel. That's not worth a report. The fact that the Pentagon put out a report that the Chinese military units are training with a sought satellites to knock out our GPS systems to knock out our ability to see what's going on in the world or to respond to an attack that doesn't get any attention. No attention. What's the media about? Hey, tommy. Hey, I counted eighteen Tangs and Tommy never got it. What's the media about? Here's a headline from the hill. CNN's Kosta right book about Trump's media battles. This guy Kosta has used his position as a journalist. To build himself up. To create a political following the ideological following. At the expense of the American people in journalism. As one other. Journalists said it may have been. Chris Wallace Brett Hume. He's a show boater. Media came to his defense and the president throw them out. Now, he's writing a book a journalist. He's not an opinion guys, not a talk. He's a journalist writing a book. About the individual who he's covering as a journalist. Not after that individual the president leaves office. But while he's in office. Do you wanna know why he's doing this? Because he can maximize the amount of money. He'll get from HarperCollins. Harper collins. Is this not unethical? If you wanna go to the opinion side of CNN, which I really don't even think they have an opinion side. I just think it's all co-mingled. But even if they pretend then do it, but you can't be the chief White House correspondent and write a book like this. And you want to know what the title is. Let's see the enemy of the people a dangerous time to tell the truth in America. How can you be a reporter? Where your beat is the president of the United States when you hate the president of the United States. That's the problem right there. Kosta times, hundreds Maggie Haberman, New York Times. Same thing. Same thing. These so-called anchors on MSNBC on CNN. Same thing. Jim acosta. Is in it for the money. I've got no problem with that. If he wants to be an opinion maker a commentator. I have a big problem with it when he's supposed to be a newsman. And he has used his perch. As it turns out to enrich himself. Because I am shocked. That means he's been taking notes. He's been putting information down. He's been contemplating this for a long time. He to send a proposal to HarperCollins. Freedom of the press freedom of the press. And he's the man who stands for freedom of the press, really. Here's an example. And should be example in every journalism class in America. I don't ever happen. But he should be an example in every journalism class in America. They should hang his photo and say see this guy don't be him. Don't turn into him. Millions of people well, not millions because they don't have millions of US thousands of people don't respect this, man. Any is dragged down the respect the American people had for media. But they're not gonna do that. You know, why they agree with them? They like to do the same thing if they could they're jealous. If they could. So here's Stelter at CNN sometimes the insanity on Twitter makes my brain hurt. Twenty rights. I sense. Sometimes the hatred makes my heart ache. But I almost never think about leaving until now. Let me tell you something, ladies and gentlemen. The only reason you leave these places you're not required to post anything. You're not required to read every nitwit who pose something. You're not required to go through the comments. I must never do on these other sites. But if you want to know what other people are thinking people, you really respect whatever their politics organizations, you respect whatever their politics. Why would you leave? Twitter or Facebook or the internet at all. Because you don't trust your own ability to thank and to reason. If you're a serious journalist. You put the brakes on before you go with something that happens to just pop up on the internet. That's the way you fix it. Jack, like, a journalist. You try to have objective, vetting, you try and think things through you know. Wow. They have maga- hats. That's that's got him. You may have your own prejudices. Political ideological. But over and over we're told it you can put those aside. Apparently, you can't. Apparently, you can't that's the evidence. And Brian Stelter has basically confessed let there so much on the internet it, my brain is hurting. My heart aches and a at all the negative and the nasty stuff. I guess he doesn't watch Don lemon. I guess he doesn't watch MSNBC. About all the hey, but we're gonna wait for Tommy Christopher to add up all the times on those two cable networks. The president of the United States has been referred to as a mass murderer of Jews. As a clansman as a racist and his audience, you supporters referred to as racists. Hey, keep something in mind. Ladies and gentlemen, these guests. That these media platforms have. They have booker's who invite these guests on the program. It's not an accident. And the crazier ass. They are. The more outrageous their statements, the more they want them as guests. Couple years back, maybe eighteen months back, Mr. producer. I don't remember. When it was. I was invited on meet the press several times wasn't I. Couple of times. They said we'll talk about your book will do whatever you want. We want you on meet the press. I said, no. They were very persistent. They wanted me to trash Republicans. I trash Republicans all the time. But I'm not going to do a dance for them. I'm not gonna do a dance for them. We've been invited on other network programs. I can't remember them all, but it's constant as long as attacking Republicans. They don't wanna hear what I have to say. They just want me to attack Republicans. I'm invited. Honestly on FOX all the time. And I love going on. I just don't have the time to do it all the time. Not because they want me to attack anybody. But actually, Sean in the morning shows and the weekend shows, they're very earnest they wanna hear what I have to say about a particular subject. The good the bad and the ugly. They never asked me what I think they never asked me what I'm going to say an event never. Never, and they know. That I'm going to call him as I see him from a conservative perspective. I'll be right back..

"Media's making much of this Michael Cohen deal with the Mueller team. You see play Dan Abrahams play play Dan Abrahams because Abrahams over GE who's their legal consultant. He's he's reacting to this. The question is, and we raise it last night on the angle will raise it again for all the chatter this, and I know it's kind of difficult for people to track this because the story is so convoluted, but basically they're contending that Michael Cohen was in contact with Russia in Russia who knows Russian developers about a Trump Tower deal. Now, how that equals or might equal collusion with Russia over a campaign, and let's let's be more precise in our language. There's no such thing as collusion with Russia criminal conspiracy with Russia to affect the outcome of an election. That's a very different argument and that newer, and no one had any evidence to suggest none. So all they have is Michael Cohen copping a plea. And by doing so he's having to contradict his Senate testimony. He testified to the Senate intelligence committee saying these negotiations for Trump Tower in Moscow ended somewhere in January of two thousand sixteen now he's changing his tune. He's saying, no, no, no, I I meant June of two thousand sixteen. Well, that's what happens when people you with life in prison and ever seeing your kids again, suddenly your memory, your your memory kicks back into into high gear. But so what if it was January June? It makes no difference. The president and his team are not colluding criminally with Russia to affect the outcome of an election. No matter how long Michael Cohen might be talking to the Russians about building Trump Tower in Russia. So what? Play Dan Abrahams knowing how close Michael Cohen was Donald Trump. You know, Trump has to be worked. I mean, regardless of what we already know already the idea that one of his closest confidants and remember attorney client privilege only applies to legal work. It doesn't it doesn't apply to business worse. You can talk about any business contacts. If the president had and that's got to be a nervous. Why does it have to be unnerving? Why if you're a real estate developer? And you're talking to people about building a lot. Let's put a finer point on it. He had he had Trump International hotel that he negotiated. He got the rights from the federal government to take possession of that hotel and transform it. It was actually the old post office the NEA used to be in that building. Now, it's the Trump International hotel. I was there last night. So the Trump organization purchased the rights to use that location. Does that mean he was colluding with factions in the government to affect the outcome of the election? This is I just think we're getting into fairy tale territory here unless there is a smoking gun unless there is real hard evidence. This fanning of the flame by people like Dan Abrahams or Chris Cuomo. I I'm sorry. It strikes me as kind of wishful thinking at the same time. We'll we'll play by we now have an explanation of why Donald Trump so curiously praised Vladimir Putin from sensually December of two thousand fifteen through obviously through the rest of the campaign. But why did it begin in December two thousand fifteen while we now know that was in the heart. Of that sixty day period of when they were truly pursuing Trump Tower Moscow. So that was on the front of spring. It must be. So what you praise someone? So it's got to be that you believed give me a break. Here's my here's the challenge in all this. And this is why. And I think they've tired out the voters, frankly. Well, I'll get your reaction to it. Eight five five forty Laura. The reason that we're hearing Republicans in their last waning moments of power, Mark meadows, and others are saying they have to pursue the Hillary Clinton thing they want to pursue the Hilary Clinton Email scandal. They want to look at how the FBI and the DOJ handle that they want to continue their inquiry. The reason that they they have that desire is because they believe there was some criminal. Behavior behind a sitting secretary of state having interactions with foreign governments and washing monies through the Clinton foundation. Okay. So that her public service was being distorted by her private acts. That's the allegation that was always the charge. Similarly, you have the left making the argument about Donald Trump that somehow he's his business interests. I have have were there to serve at the service of his political ambitions, and at one was was lifting the other ship, and so to make money he had to win the election and Russia got in in the in the game with them and help them do that. That's that's a very difficult thing to prove a and there's a lot more evidence on the Hillary Clinton side to suggest because you've got real dollars being exchanged between governments into the Clinton foundation. While she secretary of state, and you see certain things happening like the uranium one deal, etc. After money's drop. So. I think everybody has to take a breath here Mueller's gonna give his report and at that point we can react to whatever evidence he presents. But as Laura has been saying for weeks. Wits. You heard a earlier on the program today. Andy McCarthy when prosecutors move in particularly special counsels, charged and empowered with really unlimited discovery powers. They can they can twist a witness in in five directions and get them to perjure themselves. And what we have with Michael Cohen is simply this. He testified to the Senate Intel committee that the negotiations conversations conversations about Trump Tower Moscow ended in January of two thousand sixteen. He's now saying he lied to them. And the and the question for us is is he lying now. Or is he lying then he's got a real motive to lie? Now Muller's star witness has now admitted.

He could say I don't think everything he has said publicly supports exactly what the president's position has been. Yeah. Dan abrahams. Right. They're talking about Whitaker's taking over Jeff Sessions who was ceremoniously resigned. Dump fired. Whatever you wanna call it yesterday. And the guy that's taking over for him is with Trump essentially one hundred percent, and everybody's already saying this guy's brought in here for one reason to shut this thing down for understand the mall investigation. He's already started putting together his final report in the end. You're going to believe what you want to believe most people are looking for African nation. They've already made up their mind, and no matter what Muller puts inside of their that. He's innocent that he his kids. Maybe we're involved, but he wasn't that Trump is guilty which ever way you believe. Now, you're going to believe there will be a few people. Out there, we go. Yeah. But we've already predetermined in our minds. What it is do? I think there's any there there. No. But if Muller comes out and says, there's some there there. I'm opening up to go. Right. There's there there. So we've need to address this. But most people a majority of Americans a are tired of this and wanted to go away. No matter what happens either way and be have made up their minds. Of guilt or innocent. Most Americans people want him to recuse himself this Whitaker. This guy is coming. And he's totally at Trump. You know, he's a he's a Trump lack? He's going to do anything at Trump ask him to do. He'll take a bullet for Trump kind of thing. And this could be one of those things, and you know, which I think is unfair just because somebody believes in something doesn't mean automatically that they're willing to do anything. Like what you're saying? Is this guy has no morals whatsoever. He gets no kind of standards for his life. He lives by he'll just do whatever the president asked to do. And I think that's unfair on either side of the aisle. Some Republicans are concerned though. And they're like, maybe it's scattered subway. You are seeing some Republicans at least voicing some concern. Look, you have, you know, incoming Utah Senator Mitt Romney stressing in a tweet that the Muller investigation needs to be allowed to be proceeded unimpeded, and you have had you know, as there's been concerns that the president could take this step. There have been a lot of Republicans who have drawn, you know, some red lines saying that that Muller needs to be allowed to do his work here without the Trump administration. Getting in his way, the question is now whether they're going to take any action to try and make that actually come to fruition. Yeah. I don't know. I just I think he's I think this guy is what I believe he's going to be wrong. I've been wrong before I'm gonna let everybody know this. I unlike other hosts out there who believe that they would they're never wrong. I'm a human being and I will make mistakes. But this is just a gut feeling because we don't know what's gonna happen. Because if we did we would all be in Las Vegas making millions of dollars. And then we're on our to our tiny islands if we could predict the future is I think he's going to limit the scope rein it back in give him some sort of time line. He wants this thing done and kind of push it to its end. I don't think he's gonna stop it. But I believe that to me I believe that's what's going to happen and everybody else loved their own opinions and some already freaking out getting rid of the guy that recused himself the guy who allow the naming of a special prosecutor, Mr. Muller could be itself seen as obstruction because he's basically seeking revenge. Apparatus created by Rosenstein initiated by sessions themselves. So what did you wrong you fight me for? 'cause what was 'cause I created this investigation. Well, that's the way they they look at it that that sessions is part of the problem and for them sessions was the right thing. Even though nobody could stand him on the left. He was doing the right thing. And he was the only thing protecting Muller. So we'll see it's going to be very interesting moving forward. All right, kids, Jim Acosta and Trump.

"Five hundred forty seven now you're on news NewsRadio seven forty KTAR HI you've. Probably heard that there's been a, tweet storms going, back and forth on. The molar investigation the president tweeting about it again by the way his press secretary. Says he's not saying that Jeff Sessions has to pull the plug. On the, Muller investigation he's just suggesting that is not all on the up and up in fact bring up the possibility of a conflict of interest for Robert. Mueller, census entire, team, that he hired, for, the rush investigation is filled with Liberal Democrats Dan Abrahams Who's an ABC. Chief legal, analyst dismissed the problem because he says well that's mood because Muller was lifelong quote unquote lifelong Republican I don't know if he was a lifelong Republican. Or, not All I know is was team? Is made up of legal analyst Rachel Hooper former Harris County prosecutor joins us let's, examine this from from strictly a legal standpoint Rachel is there a, potential, conflict of interest at work area, if, you, are investigating. A Republican in everybody on your team is a liberal Democrat I believe their. Ears and, appearance of impropriety here the first. Thing that the Ponant of the president point two, is, the fact that Muller is allegedly a Republican okay well? Let's look at Muller's action one of his first hires a man named Andrew Weisman Weisman on. Election night he was at Hillary Clinton's election night party That really who you want as your. Lead prosecutor on your team what kind of message or you spending so I think the president is correct when he says that there. Isn't a pure of impropriety on bowlers and I hate to say this but DNA should know about this because Dan Abrahams brother-in-law is on Muller's team well That's almost like an. Indictment So so are you one of those people who subscribes to the idea that for whatever reason he doesn't seem to want to do it should Jeff Sessions. Pull the plug on this I think that what Supporters of Donald Trump it any American needs to do is go. Straight to the appointment More that document it's one page it's easily found on the internet guess what Muller's job it's to investigate the Russian government's efforts interfere in our two thousand sixteen election period Then when you see the. Prosecution of Paul Manafort on an. Old case? That was. Previously rejected by the federal prosecutors that has nothing to do with our sixteen election In the world is lower and his team to win So that's. That's what the president. Is talking, about here is right what he's talking about you know this is something that was. News to me yesterday and you just referred to it the fact that this whole Manafort was investigated something, like eight years ago and they all passed on it including Rosenstein Exactly What an incredible situation we're. In, now Paul Manafort case was passed by the federal prosecutors previously rejected. Prosecution and now here we. Are he's walked up during his trial and somehow they're trying to draw some connection between Paul manafort's alleges this deed and our, president and it's This is just about putting the screws. To Paul Manafort isn't it exactly and the judge has called the, prosecutors out on the judge has said all y'all are interested in. Is is trying to make the president look. Bad that's what, you're trying to do here and and hopefully these jurors will see through there I think jurors. Are generally very smart and see what's? Going on and I appreciate the presents for bringing this information to? The, people now this. Is kind of a heady question but. I mean everyone who's an officer of the cord is sworn to uphold the constitution, and to see Justice does this ring of Justice to you this. Whole mess that we've been. In for the last eighteen months no not at all and let's go back to Dan Abrahams why did Danny Bronx disclosed the, fact that His brother-in-law's on Muller's and he's out there claiming bowlers great, this team is great there's no bias well Dan Abrahams sister was an appointed. Or is an appointed federal judge appointed. By Barack Obama so there is bias and prejudice. In in in people's hearts but when it's opening obvious like with, Andrew Weisman the pit bull Muller's team who attended Hillary Clinton's election. Night party this just can't be a prosecutor. Should not have, opening obvious bias and that is Muller and his team Rachel thank you so much good to. Hear from you legal analyst racial Hooper?

Years later, on legal analysis of the case but And so we really. Dug into the trial because. Remember this trial is happening nine months before we get. The Republican nomination and most of the Lincoln the lawyer stuff that you hear about. Is. Related to his prominent successful career as an attorney or mostly in the eighteen forties in through the mid eighteen fifties on and off. With politics at cetera one active Lincoln Douglas debates he's now just getting onto the national. Stage Kimber of eighteen fifty nine and he's trying to find all major trial you didn't know course was going to be final major trauma but it was and and we've got the transcript so. That becomes the yoke of. The story and the rest of the book Is about everything leading, up to that trial and then of course much. Of the book is about the trial now when you say transcript Dan Abrahams They didn't have a stay many typing. Away in eighteen fifty, nine is this a hand written transcript yes. The, transcripts were very rare, back, then So they they all kind of the people who did it which were very few and our book. Is written through the eyes of the transcriber. They had their own form of shorthand that they used and they would. Then. Write out in longhand they would? Miss. Words at times they would you know Something I need the transcript. You see that they're blanks in their cross. Outs etc But but but transcripts are relatively were a relatively new thing back then I'm the guy who, transcribed this trial, for Lincoln was the transcriber for Lincoln in the Lincoln Douglas debates and in fact Lincoln recognize how. Valuable you was to the point where I think it was in the second debate Robert hit wasn't sitting in his seat in. The front and Lincoln would not start the, debate until Robert hit was. Sitting there so weakened convinced the family of the, defendant Basically hire them to write everything down in case they lost the case and they needed to appeal wow..

The, family we reverse engineer the, family tree of, the suspect based on the. Family trees of the people that are sharing DNA with him comedy cases have you been working on and are are continuing to work on, I worked on. About, a, dozen so far but I have many more cases waiting for my attention so I expect that we will see lots. More arrests thanks to genetic genealogy I. Know a lot of families are hoping for that. CC Dan In this case to the. Suspect confessed and you find that a lot of these cases where you're able to use DNA evidence and they can present that to suspect and say look we now have your DNA there's now. New, testing out there that can confirm your our person that leads to a lot more confessions sometimes you don't, even need a. Trial they'll plead guilty etc you know we often talk. About how DNA helps prove people didn't do it also can help prove people didn't. Do it police have to verify the research, and information and sometimes it means. Going through a person's garbage is a problem the court it's actually supreme court case that relates to police going through people's garbage. And in one thousand nine hundred eighty s the supreme court decided that it? Is not a violation of the constitution that, you don't have an expectation of privacy when you put. Your garbage out now if there are particular situations where. If someone's garbage of. Courses in their home or in a closed garage that's the difference Situation but once the expectation of privacy is lost the police are allowed to go, through your garbage Some have concerns saying that innocent people could become suspects do you share. That concern actually genetic genealogy is capable of really eliminating hundreds or even thousands of people from consideration the cases I've been working on. Often have had suspect lists our person of interest lists with hundreds or, thousands of names on them. In genetic genealogy were able to narrow it down to just a handful two or maybe one person, so it's actually helping much less a number of innocent people being investigated for these crimes that's ABC's Robin, Roberts with Dan Abrahams and see Seymour.

Is Roe v. Wade Is Hanging by a Thread?

"To transform the rule of law and our country during the campaign trump promised to only pick a prolife judges i am putting prolife justices on the court itchy abortion activists are calling it a pivotal moment while abortion rights defenders are saying they are in dire immediate danger the senate should reject on a bipartisan basis any justice who would overturn roe v wade or undermine key healthcare protections democrats insist there should be no confirmation vote at all until after the midterm elections they point to the fact that republicans blocked brock obama's last pick for ten months before the two thousand sixteen presidential election but republican leader mitch mcconnell says there must be no delay republicans are dealing with a razor thin one vote majority in the senate that means they can afford to lose only one that's why you can expect republicans to put intense pressure on three democrats three democrats who voted for neal gorsuch his choice last time around and who are now this year up for reelection it states that trump won big george stephanopoulos and cecilia vega spoke with abc's chief legal analyst dan abrahams san abc supreme court contributor kate shaw looking to answer the question so many are asking after justice kennedy's resignation why now robie wade that's where all the early energy is going to be that's right but let's be clear there's no question that roe v wade could be in jeopardy but that doesn't mean it's going to get overturned everyone's talking about overturned overturned as a practical matter justices liked to show deference to previous opinions meeting it's unusual to say we're simply going to overturn a decision because we now disagree with if it happens on occasion but it's very rare more likely what you see is an opinion effectively get gutted meaning states that want to restrict abortion will increasingly make laws that are more restrictive and more restrictive and then have those laws challenged in the hope that those laws are able to move forward and ineffective would mean that it becomes nearly impossible for women in a number of states to get and you can be sure that whoever president trump nominates is going to do his or her best not to show their hand on roe wade during the confirmation you don't want to admit you know what your position is on any case in the confirmation process the rule is when you're asked about a particular case you say this could come in front of me and as a result i'm night i'd have to see what the facts of the case were but you've got to believe that the president is going to know a lot about any candidate that he considers justice kennedy didn't make from the bench where you surprise you were there we all knew it was a possibility but i don't think anyone in that building really believed he was going to do impart because you know he seemed to send a message with his travel ban separate writing that he had some concerns about some of president trump's conduct and rhetoric he wrote separately to sort of say you need to acting ways that respect constitutional values like equality but in the end you know i think he did want to be replaced by republican president and this was the surest way to see that.

Get started at indeed dot com. Slash higher. From ABC news world news this week. Chuck's Iverson in New York coming up forty, nine questions for the president's clean. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting stormy Daniels payments, no campaign finance violation. So through lawful. Then the president, he North Korea summit. We now have a day and we have a location. Paradise ignites a difficult thing to watch the floor is unpredictable in his own words. Here, maybe I'll have another five years. Maybe I'll be gone before you hear this. People in events that made headlines when world news this week continues. There's a lot coming at you right now, turmoil tweets, an insane amount of chatter. I'm Brad milkey with ABC news and I'm here to throw you a lifeline. It's a new podcast called start here or are experts give you on the ground access to the biggest stories of the day. We're going to give you some context, some clarity among the chaos, twenty minutes every weekday subscribe now on apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast and start here. What did you know about phone calls that Mr Flynn made with the Russian ambassador? What did you mean in your interview? With Lester Holt about Mr.. Komi in Russia. Those are two of the forty nine questions. Robert Muller's special council wants to ask President Trump in a sit down interview according to a document leaked to the media this week, ABC's congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce on what else is in those questions. The list of nearly fifty probing questions. Special counsel, Robert Muller has for President Trump lines of questioning, Muller shared with Trump's own legal team. The list now published by the New York Times and what the president is now calling a disgraceful leak Russian collusion. Give me a break. Trump insists. Molars list has no questions on collusion, but that's not true. The special counsel has questions about Paul Manafort once the president's campaign chairman according to the times, Muller wants to ask Trump what knowledge did he have any outreach by his campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign. Muller also wants to ask the president win. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting that infamous sit down Don Jr. Jared, Kushner? Manafort in Russians, they were told had dirt on Hillary Clinton much of Muller's list centers on possible obstruction of Justice by the president. The special counsel wants to know what if I were made to reach out to Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn about seeking immunity or possible? Pardon. And what did Trump mean when he said this about firing his FBI director, James Komi when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing. Thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story N when Trump told Russian diplomats and this Oval Office meeting that firing Komi had taken the pressure off, what did he mean by that? Another question Muller wants answered, what discussions did the president have regarding terminating the special counsel with the release of those questions also came word that the special counsel has warned President Trump's legal team, that if the president refuses an interview, Muller could issue a subpoena ABC news, chief legal analyst. Dan Abrahams says, this raises the stakes, let's say it works its way all the way through the courts. The supreme court then says, sorry, this is a valid subpoena and the president says, well, I don't think so, and I'm not going to show up. That's when you have the real potential crisis. We use this word constitutional crisis all the time. I think that the only real crisis occurs if you have in the end, a real war between two branches of government were one of saying, you can't tell me what to do the president. However, maintaining he's still willing to sit down with Muller despite what his legal team is telling him. I would love to speak. I would love to nobody wants to speak more than me back against my lawyers because most lorries they never picked another. I would love to say, what is it like to sit down with a special counsel's team former Trump campaign adviser. Michael Caputo recently did so, and he's detailing the experience to ABC news, chief Justice correspondent Pierre, Thomas former Trump political adviser. Michael Caputo helped in the early stages of a campaign from Trump Tower says he won't soon. Forget the grilling. He says, he took from two FBI juice and a prosecutor with a special counsel's team three hours. Plus they weren't pulling any punches at at some points in time. I, it got kind of frightening. Caputo says the agents knew so much about his life. It scared him. They know everything here. They know more about what I did in two thousand sixteen than I do, but will the investigators after they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign and at the convention. I think they're completely focused on collusion. With Russia. According to Caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the DNC by Russian operative known as goussev for and WikiLeaks, which published stolen information. This is his stark assessment on whether Muller's anywhere near done, investigating possible collusion. I'm hoping this end soon, but it sounds to me like they have more dating to do today. Give you any sense that they have anything. I believe that they, they think they're onto something what that is. I don't know. They're not messing around. Caputo, says investigators Pepperdine with questions about his friends. The president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Paul Manafort who's been indicted on money laundering charges. The president's longtime friend and advisor, Roger stone. The one thing he says, surprised him from the interview. It was remarkable to me that the president was brought up. Nobody with last name Trump came up at all. Speaking of the president's legal team, there were major shakeups yet again this week with top White House lawyer, tie Cobb telling ABC news. Be leaving having, you know, stay longer than I intended, but believing that the end of this month ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl spoke with Cobb about his departure from the president's team out tie Cobb, the lead White House lawyer dealing with the special counsel replaced by Amit flood who was one of President Clinton's impeachment lawyers Cobb tells me he was ready to leave almost everything that I was brought on to do as Ben accomplished comet employed a strategy of patients with Muller cooperation. Definitely. What is the right move? And and definitely the path that would lead to the quickest resolution. But it was President Trump's newest lawyer, former mayor, Rudy Giuliani who created shockwaves this week when he told FOX's Sean Hannity, that money was not campaign money. Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know, it's not campaign money, no campaign finance violation. So they've funneled through law firm. Frontal through over and the president. It. I didn't know Giuliani acknowledging for the first time that the president repaid that one hundred thirty thousand dollars to his personal attorney. Michael Kohn ABC's giancarl with a new explanation from the White House last month. The president, flatly denied knowing anything about the hush money Cohen claimed he paid Daniels out of his own pocket.
