"Here. I know everything. Like i am your leader. You know. follow me an. It's a style thing And those people break right because they don't actually know what to do next and you know they can't say to their board in a moment of humility you know. I need help on this one. I have to say this is what we're doing blah blah blah. And of course most boards would say. I'm just here to support you. And great and the company goes off on the wrong path maybe scales model. That's completely unsustainable or whatever Mercilessly guys we have an asset here like people love the brand. They love the thing. But i don't think that that we should just scale it because it feels a little irresponsible Maybe that's radical. Maybe i'm wrong. I'm just a little loss. Like i can't imagine you know. For example. the we work board having a conversation like that at some point in their in their history. But i suspect. And i don't know adam so policies if this totally wrong but just as an example that they were led by leader who had no doubt or with presenting no doubt And you know maybe the fine it is. An awesome brand is an amazing thing Ill certainly define But you know maybe it didn't live up to its potential yet because of that and you know watching the break is hard. They get fired. They get replaced but the ceo with humility montage. Just gets the help they need. And you know they build a better company and they learn from it and so i think people are going to change. I think generally people fall in one of those categories. They're either say. I don't know what to do here. Are they're gonna pretend they do. And they're gonna play it that way pretty much all the time and one group is going to break in the other group is gonna learn. Hopefully they would call. This has been a slice of heaven.

"One's a another one that comes out of the pack. So i chose the speed. He loves qinglin. One over early in the keeneland fall me and it's not that i don't like the other one i think the other one's gonna probably be my derby horse truly. Yeah also man. That's so so you said that you have the two injuries into the same race. Exact choose between what and what races that to clarify for for the kids. S the breeders cup juvenile route. Okay that's friday night friday night. I believe it would be the the eleventh race on the card. So we'll be looking. Is there any. Is there any chance you're gonna switch off and change your mind or the team maybe put you on the other horse that against your preference right now based on what may come well considering we already did all the fine Detail work what we have actually tomorrow. I'm headed out the keeneland to get on both of them for more just a maintenance workout not gonna do anything special or anything that would make me decide otherwise and this was a grueling decision did not come easy at all But at the end of the day. That's the way i chose. You gotta make a choice. And that's all chosen. I kind of put it where one of them. The dreamers the z's has everything figured out. he's very advanced. Does everything very easily where the other coal is still kind of figuring things out he has. He's a big horse grown into his body mentally. And i think this one will win the battle but the other one winning the war so to speak like you said. That's that's a pretty good problem to have in your situation and We've we've noticed this team doro and maybe even go into it as much as you want or as little as you want but it seems like this is awesome team for you Every time. I see the winning. You know the winners circle pictures or or or a lot of your success tied to the same team. And it's those guys Is that your primary source of mounts your only source or is it i. I'm not for for for people who don't understand how it works at your level. Maybe you can explain to us how you make your decisions on who to ride for. And when way not obviously i have an agent and job and decision to to who are life but any successful jockey needs a big barn to ride. For and dea doro is for me. He's one of those barns I'm blessed to have many other supporters but when it comes down to loyalty and longevity and a history diaspora We've done some great things and it's probably the only re- i would say only reason but a huge reason without you know not giving things to anybody else but he's probably one of the bigger reasons why on your show right now in receiving such an award also owners member station you know obviously a rep them harder than you know. They've been great to me and you can't get more loyal people so to be able to do it together and have like such a successful fall like we did a team and Eminem racing winning the owner steidl and it just makes things that much more special. When you're able to do it with your team that believes in you so much. That's great man. I could see it a for those. Who can't see we're podcasting this versus a youtube or facebook live but but david david saying i could tell he truly believes because he's excited to talk about it and that's that's the key to successful team. Anybody knows in sports or any any game. You have to truly love it and truly believe in your in your teammates partners and that's clearly happening here. i've got a follow up question on that and then let vinnie vinnie. He's got a couple of questions for you to since your last appearance with us which was again i think in. May i'm pretty sure We followed pretty closely. And it seems like you propelled up a level or two since then a top echelon jockey now and the getting along with that comes the top echelon rides like you mentioned with with your partners. Do you feel like this is your best year to date twenty twenty or at least in recent date because again we talked. We talked last time about your major injury. The put you out for a few years in all honesty you know several years ago. Don't know where where you stood on competition level compared to now but to me it seems like just in the last eight months or so. You've you've really progressed. Well you mentioned the injury. And i actually had a bang bang up year. My year returned two thousand eighteen. I ended up receiving the jockey Comeback awards and it just it was really very great year for me but without a doubt we really see for me. A lot of people don't know that You know used to ride a new york primarily year round. And i've tried and and really committed heavily to making kentucky my summer spring summer fall circuit and keep oakland park as my winter circuit. So what comes with that is that you're not just gonna come in and take mounts away from people that have been here for twenty years and take support away so it takes a little bit of grind. It takes sometimes a little bit of downtime and not doing as well. And you gotta show your commitment. And that's kind of what the last couple of years have been building. And i think we're seeing we're reaping the benefits now that we're getting not only a lot of local guys But you know showing never riding for guys that come out of new york. Chad brown Graham motion a thomas a big local barn here in in kentucky that i've picked up that showed me a lot of support.

"Night if you're from somewhere in the in the mid west region which is the night before halloween other parts of the country. I've learned nothing about devil's night. Which is which is kind of a weird dynamic in detroit people. The kids go out and they burn houses down in the night before halloween for some celebratory reason it happens i guess detroit thing but anyway this is episode twenty eight and we usually pick an honor a person a pass sports hero. The word the jersey number david i believe last time it was emmett smith. If i remember correctly exactly i do remember. That was twenty two. We have a couple of guests tonight. David world renowned jockey a absolute legend in the in the prophets world. We'll talk more about him later. We'll get them. We'll get him a few questions out here and we got vinnie. Blonde from real dynasty picks up in the new york saratoga area. Thanks for having me again. No problem man. Thanks for coming on So back to the episode twenty thing. We usually honor it with one with athlete today. We got a trio. Because i think it's only fitting the modern era running backs in the nfl. There was three three great ones. Were in the twenty eight. And i'm talking modern era. I'm going to say from the nineteen eighties nineties on like in our lifetimes right. So adrian peterson still active. Still wearing number twenty eight. I believe the other two to come to mind instantly. Curtis martin new york jets. Marshall faulk baby marshall fault probably top three or four all time. Great underrated vinnie. Might be a few years too young for that. I don't know maybe. David is to non marshall beast that tint marshall warner falk tori whole team that raises the team. That ramsey was there. That was the greatest show on turf. Maybe yeah i think i think the plan. The marshall plan often overlooked because it always comes up again. We'll go back. Emmitt smith barry sanders. Those guys are the modern day. All time greats and i think peterson is too but i think falk is as good as any of them. That can be argued in another time topics. Today we're going to cover trust the prophets. First birthday happened where a year old officially. I think it was on the twenty seventh three days ago. so i made up the the annual awards the prophets choice awards honoring the best if you actually several categories about six or seven categories and even though this is the first year four it we fully expect this to be the highest honour most prestigious award in the industry period. Without i can no question. You'll get no arguments from anybody. I'm sure but tonight we're gonna talk about one one category specifically of those awards and that's the twenty twenty jockey of the year and if you haven't guessed yet david cohen's here for a reason and he's going to get that honor this year for twenty twenty our first year and just to clarify for vinnie. Everybody else this is not necessarily the leading money jockey country. This is not a statistically driven category per se but for us. It's kind of the the award goes to the jockey who combined the best results back to us as far as the betting and then as far as entertainment value and david has come on. He was nice enough to come on when. We're only a couple of months couple months old back and i think it was made. David sounds about right when right when the kobe was going on at the beginning of it and kentucky derby got cancelled and all that that's what it feels like to me and so yeah we give give the award of david. And he's a. He's a great first timer and twenty years from now. We look back at this thing. He'll be the first first ever winter. It's gonna be fun to see how it plays out over the next few years but david was actually a fine. We had five finalists tyler leone. I read Ricky santana junior floyd junior which all the four other guys a great also. I'm sure david knows these guys way better than we do. But we chose these guys again not not just on the accolades on the track and the leading money winners but for lotteries and so anyway david. Now that you know you're the winner in our noggin. Awards tell the people. How feels the win. The most sought after award all of horse racing. Maybe in all of sports. I off hold on. Let me start out. Look let me grab this. This came in the mail it two nights ago. Right look at what these guys brought to the table right. So you guys really set the bar high twenty years from now i expect. Let me grab a screenshot. Let me grab a screenshot of this. Because we got this should be the problem. Now for the for the podcast. We know you can't see us. Live here but credible david. David display displaying the award. It's basically again more prestigious than an oscar. I mean it's when i tell you this meeting comparable now. The this is the oscar horse racism and twenty years from now. Like i said i a life size replicas of me on my derby worse maybe maybe we can get a screen cap. The tattoo trust the prophets tattoo that you got later and you're when the pressure you know. I'm feeling that though we'll see what we can do. I have to talk to my wife about that and see how she feels. I'm sure i'm sure she'd love it. I'm only allowed one name per per body so she's gonna have to give an inch on that one we all know the prestige that comes along with the award looking all jokes aside able to tap on that to answer. Your question is a great list of nominees and to be considered to be considered on an honor. I know this is the first inaugural a profit choice of words. But i think you're setting a precedent and it's an honor to be selected out of that group. Appreciate that man we are. Yeah we're we're still young as a group as a team and You know our our number one goal honestly is to promote the game a little bit. Because i think if you ask the average person in america across the country outside of maybe like like we're vinnie's from venise from saratoga like proper like the dude can spit on the track from his house. Okay so people like that. It's a little different. But i'm from detroit. Were thoroughbreds. Didn't even run my most of my life and now i live in south carolina where there's no racing it all. It's i asked the standard american person in my neighborhood about horse racing. They will not even know that it still exists. Obviously that's exaggerated but but truthfully it's not a big deal in the average home. I've always enjoyed it my whole life and that i am always kind of surprised to find out that other than the kentucky derby breeders cup the triple crown. If there's a horse going for it people care but other than that man. I mean typical people out out in the country outside of these pockets of where you guys are at. I mean they're just. It's just not as big of a deal as i think should be because it's obviously there's there's a a group of us that love this game in love as much as you guys. That are actually doing it. So first and foremost back in. May we talked about your some of your biggest accomplishments to date. And then some of your goals and dreams as a jockey. What were you want to go. The first thing that comes to my mind is will you be at keeneland. Will you be involved in the breeders cup and twenty twenty. Because that's that's obviously the big event on the on the menu coming up in the next week or two and everybody's excited about it. Tell us tell us. What's up with david in the breeders. Cup twenty twenty Yeah friday. I have a couple very nicer to earl. Juvenile's running in the juvenile route and one of those horses named as dreamers disease. That's the one. I'll be riding. He'll be an entry for Robert tina diadora. We have another horse. Keep me in mind Really gotta decide between those two. I mean you really couldn't It's a good problem to have but it's a very unique Problem because normally when you have to pick between two It's two different trainers and he kind of got. Give the answer real early on. They want you to commit. So they don't lose a certain writer and the ability to get the right writer on their horse I had a unique situation where i've been able to work these sources against each other and get the choice of what i really want on two different totally style. Horses wanted to speed horse..

"So I would love for you to evangelize the work that you're doing on the board for partnership with children and talk a little bit about that. Sure. I love to sew partnership with children. I was introduced to it probably five years ago by Bill Tucker who was agency compatriot now at the A N A. It was a bad time in my career where I was really looking at how can I give back in ways that I hadn't been doing before I do have two teenage daughters dead. I was I was struck by the work that partnership was doing for the most disadvantaged children in New York City and I went to a school to to meet some of these kids. I talked to the partnership with children social workers. These are kids that wake up in the morning and they don't have any any clean clothes to wear. They don't have anything and this is before pre pandemic. They don't have any wage thing necessarily to eat. They might not even have an adult member in the house. They're in poverty situations. They have crisis at home. And the thing that was most resonant to me. I started learning about partnership is just knowing that somebody cares about whether they show up to school or not makes all the difference in the world. Just having a an adult that checks in on you that step number one that makes an inordinate amount of difference in the development of that child into a productive member of society and as I got into understanding what time But the partnership was doing I got my two daughters to come with me to a couple of the events and I got them to hear from some of the kids that were touched by and moved by and helped by the partnership with children folks and it made them appreciate a little bit more kind of the the lifestyle that they have and what they grew up with and not to take things as much for granted as they had and obviously I've been doing a lot of fundraising for the organization. And being able to leverage the relationships that I've created over my career to the good of folks that are disadvantaged to has been very very rewarding and I've I've kind of paid it forward. So I've gotten other folks that are in the industry involved Helen Lynn is also on the board. So that was fantastic and she continued to do that. I think the only thing I'd say last is as with other things in during this pandemic there has never been a more critical time for home support in every way it takes whether it's financial support or psychological support or counseling and Crisis Care. These kids really are going through, you know, everything that we're all going through you take it and it's just super acute if you started out in a in a poverty-stricken kind of crisis-prone environment and just a dog Endemic an economic crisis on top of that and and racial and social unrest you can imagine that the work that we're doing now is is more important than ever. So we continue to to fight on Monday. Thank you for doing that and thank you for sharing so much about it and I'll certainly add a link to the show notes to partnership with children. It's really heartwarming to hear about that and you mentioned your daughters at home. And I hope your family is is well. I know that there are a lot of post-grad kids who have moved back home. So I think another service that we could do for grown up children is give some advice for how one might get into a comedian industry and and perhaps find a job these days in our challenging times thoughts. Yes, I think challenging times are in some cases an understatement. You know, one of the things that we have done this year as it relates to kind of diversity expert on inclusion. One of the challenges that we have is kind of making sure folks that are in colleges and universities are are so inspired by the media and marketing industry that they want to get into office of this business that we're in. So we've been doing a lot of kind of reach out to you know, historically black colleges and universities. We invited them to participate a lot of I think nearly four hundred students participated in the newfronts. We are talking about starting an apprenticeship program for folks that want to kind of break into this industry. I don't think that there is a silver bullet or a simple answer to your question. I do think being glass-half-full and reasonably optimistic. I think that the worst of it is is odd. And I think that next year we were going to continue to kind of claw our way back to to the growth that we've seen year in and year out and I think that you know at home I be where we reflection of kind of the health of the the ecosystem kind of at-large and we're trying to do everything that we can to grow the overall kind of industry and ecosystems. We can contain it continued to to move the business forward. So I would say for folks that are looking for work networking is is by far and away the tools that we have at our disposal now, are Beyond Compare um, and uh networking and you know, it's a six degrees of separation. You'll find your way to someone at a company that is interested in hiring if you just keep at it so diligence I think is as important and I know that we're going through a time of people kind of been being laid off and people downsizing and efficiency measures. Yep. Hopeful that 2021 will reverse that and we'll be back to the kind of hiring that we have seen in years past. Well,.

"But there's also something about having a dedicated focus that helps to concentrate the activity and improve the performance. What do you think the morale of people as the? Right now. So. People ask me that a lot. They do. I thought it was very good for a good question. I think the right answer to that is to say, I think them around the agency is the same as the morale in the United States that sucks. Yeah. Well in some respects it does right. Because you know, there's a lot of people in the United States who are quite quite unhappy with the way things are they the agencies about everybody's Jordi. Yeah. The agencies big place, and it's got people from all walks of life from all around the country who all have different perspective that sort of on the political dimension. I do think one important aspect of morale at the agency is that there is a enormously powerful mission orientational to what people do there. So what they think about Donald Trump. You know, what they think about, you know, Hillary Clinton or whoever the democratic candidates may be twenty twenty or the other Republican candidates for that matter in twenty twenty is not that important. Their morale doesn't depend on. That. Morale depends on whether they will pursue their mission. I do think that the way that this ministration uses does not use intelligence has some impact on how people in the agency feel about their day-to-day work. But it's not it isn't political. It's that you know, they're busting in their ass their taste taking risk. They're living in austere in difficult places overseas away from family away from friends, whatever it may be and the product that they're generating is not being used in the ways opposed to be used. I think that has an impact, you know. It's very similar to the way. I would answer I was asked about the Justice department. I think overall morale is high because the work that people do is based on the mission that they have and whether pursuing gang violence or homicide cases, Republic rupture or anything else. They don't love it. I'm sure when the president. Of the United States CASAs Persians on their attorney general and seems to think that there's no such thing as truth that has lawyer saying truth is in truth. And there's such a thing as alternate facts at all that not great. But probably the morale they feel as citizens is in worship in the morale. They feel in those jobs unless you're in a certain line of work. So I imagine there's some people who are working in particular issues. Maybe the folks who are focusing on North Korea may have their morale impacted more seriously than your average rank and file engine or analyst were employees. Yeah. I think that's right. I think the the the closer you are to the crazy the more your morale suffer. What do you make of John Brennan Twitter feed? Not crazy. First of all, I think John having spent a lifetime in until community a lifetime looking at threats to the United States looking at how autocrats operate and the damage they can do to their country, and a lifetime understanding that his responsibility is to warn about threats is acting in the way that a lifelong intelligence officer who has a platform now as a private citizen should act. I don't have a problem with John saying publicly whether by Twitter or or otherwise that he sees what this administration is doing with Donald Trump in particular doing as a threat to the United States. I think we're all the beneficiaries of people like John of people like, Mike Hayden, John McLaughlin, and others people who. Have spent their life defending this country. Stan mcchrystal in Bill mcraven in a real true American hero so-called generals. Right. People who've done extrordinary things and have spent their life thinking about these issues saying there's something seriously different and worrying going on. I think they're doing a service. See something hopeful about the future. I think that this country and the people who work for our government are fundamentally good they will ensure as we go forward that what this country stands for prevails and that the harm done in these four years gets repaired David Cohen. Thanks for joining us. Thank you..

"And I think also the rules are put in place for the Muller investigation. It was clear that there was a counterintelligence investigation that was part of the broader criminal investigation that that Bob Muller was taking over you know, the fact that apparently according to the times that the president's was one of the individuals who was being it was the focus of that investigation. Doesn't strike me. As all that remarkable. It was a counterintelligence investigation looking at whether the Russians had coopted Americans in the course of the Trump campaign. And you would think that the guy ahead of that campaign would be part of the investigation. So in your time articles over hyped is that what you're saying David Cohen. I'm saying that I think we knew some of this already, and I I do find it striking actually that it took a year and a half for this story to to seep out if it's an odd leak that comes so long after there was so many people who had incentives to explain what was going theory on that. Which is I think the White House is anticipating the Muller report coming out in the next month or two, and they know that Bob Muller was conducting part of this is overall investigation counter tones physician, and they they want this out brilliant. It's brilliant Rudy Giuliani strategy. Yeah. Get ahead of it. This deal. Let me move on from these questions about Trump in the FBI. Do you know, you have a nickname? I believe you known as the sanctions grew. Yeah. Do you accept that? Title. I accept on behalf of a large number of people. Very diplomatic. You're the you're the guy how long did you do were involving American sanctions on other countries for about six years when I was at the department? So can we take a step back? Sometimes they're all these news reports about sanctions, and whether it's related to Iran or Russia or South Africa years ago for the United States government to impose sanctions on another country sovereign nation. What has to happen? In other words, can a president wake up one morning and say, you know, what I'm kind of pissed off Bolivia. Yeah. We should do something about that. The president does not have the unilateral ability to do that. Or does he well he sort of does actually congress passed a law in the mid seventies called the international emergency economic Powers Act known as a in the business that gives you thirty to the president to impose sanctions upon a finding that there is an unusual extraordinary threat to the foreign policy national security, our economy nited states, and if the president declares a national emergency with respect to that threat wherever I heard of that before exactly, but who who has to make the finding so the finding is made by the president's in an executive order that is the foundation for a sanctions program, but separate apart from the president doing that congress also has the ability to pass a law. Correct. Imposing sanctions on any particular country. Right. So in congress has done more of that in the last, you know, five ten years or so so specific legislation calling for specific sanctions to be applied against against countries by the Iran. Russia North Korea. But there's a back and forth. And there can be a check or balancer. Congress can pass a law. The president can veto at than you have to work out supermajority philosophy of sanctions..

"So, but do you think is hypothetical? If your poll varies experts within the agency that you. Help to run and said, do you think that thou Trump is an asset of Russia? Are there people there who would say definitively based on information that they have the answer is? No. So I can't say that. I can't say one way or the other frankly, because I imagine there has been a fair amount of information and intelligence at the agency is collected in the last several years that would help inform that answer. But you know, what we see, you know, openly transparently, you know, every day has gotta make you question. And and I think it's important to draw a distinction here between sort of policy approaches that you think gee, that's like ill advised. That's not how I would do it that seems to support the Russian viewpoint on this more than a traditional American going. You know, I mean, that's the president's prerogative. You know, we I think we need to give them the benefit of the doubt in some respects that he came to those views, you know. For example. So for example, his view on sanctions, you would say is a policy difference. Sure. I think it could be his view on the withdrawal from Syria. He ran and was quite quite clear during the campaign that he thought we were over extended in the Middle East, whether it was Afghan. I think the way that he has gone about announcing and beginning the drawl from Syria's completely screwed up. But you know, the fact that he took that perspective and others in the foreign policy and after scooter salad take the respect of. I don't think that's evidence that he is working for the Russians, but you can look at things like his refusal to accept the high confidence judgments intelligence queenie that the Russians attacked us attacked American democracy in the course to twenty sixteen election in you've got to kind of scratch your head and think why would an American president. Not embrace the intelligence community and not take the opportunity to defend one of the fundamental aspects of our country, our democracy. You can look at things like his sort of unrelenting attacks on the EU and NATO which again, you can look it as a policy issue or you can look at as a sort of head scratcher about why is it that he came into office, and essentially tried to blow up the two institutions that the Russians and Putin in particular are specially focused on trying to undermine. I do think the sanctions question is an important one. You know, there was a whole host of sanctions that were put in place after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and that had broad bipartisan support. In fact, you know, there are many who thought that the sanctions in go far enough. We have in the course of the campaign apparently conversations between his incoming national security advisor and the Russian ambassador about relaxing those sanctions. And you gotta wonder what it is that leads him to to these positions. But if he's an asset he's very peculiar one, not only because he sits atop the entire government. But I'm guessing in your experience. Let me ask you the question in your experience. We're gonna tell matters at the treasury department and just living life. How many assets are you aware of who sort of did things publicly to cause people to wonder if they were in fact in asset usually they like to hide that stuff? Absolutely. I mean, I think that the traditional technique of an asset is to not draw attention to the fact that they might be, you know, working for a foreign power for Donald Trump. I think the the question has to be not whether he is sort of currently. On the take from the Russians and having some, you know secret conversation going on, you know, signal with Vladimir Putin where he's getting direction I think the question that people are asking. And I think it's a good question is over many many years going back more than a decade us, see Donald Trump, the Trump organization having interactions with the Russians. There's plenty of open source information about financial relationships between the Trump organization and certainly Russians and perhaps the Russian government. There are multiple trips to Russia. You see Donald Trump saying things like the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was done in order to combat terrorism, which is a one hundred percents the initially the Soviet and now the Russian line..

"David cohen. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. So I'm gonna start with a million things to talk about. Start with an easy softball question. Which is this is Donald Trump Russian asset. I don't know. Well, the fact that you don't know. Yeah. Used to be at the CIA. Yeah. As I say, the fact that I don't know. And this isn't have anything to do with my time. When I was at the agency has to do with everything we've seen in the two years since I think is really, you know, disconcerting that you can't say with great certainty that the president isn't either an unwitting agents or someone who has over many, many years been co-opted and brought into the Russian orbit does a pain you to say that terribly. It's a horrible thing. It's a terrible thing that we can't with great confidence say there is no chance that the president is not in some respect working for the Russian government. What is it about Donald Trump's interactions over many many years with Russians that make you worry about that? He has for a decade two decades. Been traveling to Russia on occasion, not consistently but on occasion, travelling to Russia. He has been involved in business relationships with the Russians whether it's the Miss Universe pageants or Russians purchasing units in his buildings worries me that he has in some respect been brought in to the Russian orbit that they have invested in him. This is the standard, you know, initially Soviet now Russian tradecraft, they see an influential American Donald Trump, you know, twenty years ago was an influential American they're going to look for a way to try to use that person as an agent of influence in the United States as someone who will who will help to promote their narrative, their align their view of the world..

"Thank you question. I don't I don't know about the baseball metaphor. But I can speak to the southern districts ability to do those cases because I ran it which has had assigned to various things, including the Michael matter from os office, and they're in great shape. You know, the us attorney's offices throughout the country really are the backbone of the Justice department in terms of bringing prosecutions of asked majority prosecutions or not brought by trial lawyers who sit in Washington, but through the various districts all around the country, the other district in particular that I led for seven and a half years remains independent has the same. Excellent quality of people there's not turnover from time to time as happened with me there's turn over at the. Up. But when he was attorney changes that doesn't change the makeup of the office, the professional career, folks, whose politics are never inquired about his politics. Don't matter continue to work on the cases. And so, you know, other than shift at the top, which I'm not sure how much that matters the excellence of the office remains that's true. Also of the us attorney's office eastern district of Virginia and various other places some of which maybe we don't even know have received referrals from Muller's office. So the easy answer. Your question is there in very good position to bring whatever case, they think is appropriate to break into decline any case, they think it's appropriate to decline and further the spirit of your question. It's it's a little bit harder for president or even attorney general to shut down without good cause and without causing a conflagration in public. I think reckoning various cases in various offices. My guest this week is David Cohen during the Obama administration. He served first as the secretary of the treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence where among other things he oversaw the US sanctions program against Iran. David then became the deputy director of the CIA a position he held from twenty fifteen to twenty seventeen. He's now a partner at the law firm. Wilmer hale. I speak with him about the current status of US sanctions around the world the planned withdrawal from Syria, and whether he can say with certainty that the president of the United States is not a Russian asset. That's coming up. Stay tuned..
"david cohen" Discussed on Words Matter
"And Emily narrates her own book for the audible version, and at least talk to her about that process during their interview. Columbine by David Cohen was a title that you selected for the audible words matter library, the author is someone at least that you got to know. Well, and we're both big fans of his work talk a little bit about why you picked the book and why it's important today. First of all Columbine is one of the most beautifully written narrative. Nonfiction books of the last century. Just in terms of Dave Collins writing prowess, it's worth looking at and paying attention to. But it's also an incredibly important story. Dave goes back, and he charts how the Columbine massacre came to be and goes deep into the killers and their headset. Their high school mindset and how they executed the first mass killing at an American school. And I hate that the story is unfortunately still applicable day because we are witnessing these tragedies far. Too often and Dave came on our podcast in shared his insights into how we got to this moment in terms of gun violence in America. But the book Columbine I can't recommend it highly enough. And you should definitely check it out on audible, one of the fun things about doing this podcast. Is that even if you know a subject, well, you wind up learning one two or a whole host of things that you didn't know before I've been studying history or working in politics for almost thirty years now, but.

"Tech fan podcast number three hundred seventy eight. It's the end of twenty eighteen and I'm joined by David Cohen tomorrow is was tomorrow. The thirty know today is very I know tomorrow's the thirty first day before the end of the, but for all intents of purposes, most people probably listen to this on the thirty first last day of twenty eighteen and it's been a memorable year. David. Certainly has been the two months and. And debate and argument and more of all of that than than I can remember for quite a few years. I think you know, I am an advocate podcast listener myself. I don't just record this one and produce a bunch of others. I like podcasts and I've been listening to podcasts quite honestly since two thousand four. So that's a long time to be listening to podcasts alone recording in the majority of that time as well. But I found myself. The shows that I generally like to listen to her either tech-heavy or I like some political stuff. But it's so even the the lot of the tech show's they lose to became so political we've talked about political stuff in the past here, not extensively not in any great detail, usually, but I just couldn't do it anymore. I didn't want to listen to the news podcast because it seemed like it was this bad news all the time. So I'll be honest with you, David I've enlisted in a lot of audio books lately. This kind of debt compressing. Yes. Sometimes that's the best way of dealing with stuff. In the world is getting away from it for one. I listen to the entire Harry Potter series over the last few months driving back and forth to work read by Stephen Fry. Yep. I love. Oh, I he's awesome. I I love his voice. I like him as a person to his lost in America. I think that's what it was called. It was it lost in America or something like that. Yes. And the one we traveled around the black taxing, yes. Yup. I love that show. I I like to see my own country viewed from an outsider. So Stephen FRY's. Interesting because he started as a comedian. Yes. Doing sketches with Hugh Laurie the guy who played house. Correct. We talked about that other show while there. Yeah. And the, you know, the thing is that means he's a great. He's a good actor, and he's a good comic actor which makes his readings of stuff for Harry Potter. And also anybody who's ever seen the quiz show? He does Q I as well. He's exceptionally intelligent. So that means that his his readings of audio books are really well performed which makes a big difference for an audiobook. Well, I listened to his audio books obviously for the Harry Potter series. But the way he does Hagrid was exactly the way the guy who they got in the movies talked. Yeah. So I I'm pretty sure that the audio book came out before the first movies did. Yeah. And the actor obviously, listen to audio books because he got the cadence and the gruff it's it's spot on. It's just perfect. It's fun. But I just started a new book. I'm literally ten minutes into it. And I've already kind of I'm digging it. What is it? Let me pull it up. It's called. We are legion. We are. Bob. The the premise is. I know sounds terrible. But it won't a bunch of award. So I was like oh give it a listen. And the guy who's narrating. It's quite good. It's takes place in modern times. At least it starts that way disguise selling his tech company. The book starts out that he's at this business signing up to have his head cut off and frozen if he dies. Well, I know by the premise of the book that really quickly here that's actually going to happen. He's going to get hit by a bus because it's in the on the dust jacket. If you will rainy wakes up in the future with a brand new body and his he's Bob two point. Oh, so I'm looking forward to listening to this journey. It's about nine hours long. So that'll take me, you know, the next week and a half two weeks driving back and forth to work. I've not had this book. But interests me, I didn't either. I was I decided because I enjoy listening to the Harry Potter books so much and I've listened to a couple of other ones recently to. I.
"david cohen" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"Well, I mentioned David Cohen what a year he has had. He has won one hundred nine races in two thousand eighteen the thirty four year old last road back on February first of two thousand fourteen that's when he was injured and. Broke his leg in a couple of different places. Took a few years off return last fall, and again, one hundred nine victories here in two thousand eighteen and he is the comeback jockey of the year. And he's with us now here on the horse racing radio network. David welcome, my friend, happy to have you on board for a few minutes. I will. Thank you for having me, gentlemen. How you guys doing today? Good. We're doing great and congratulations on that honor. Well deserved. Appreciate it. You know, really wasn't something that I thought about much during the year. So it was a a nice little surprise during the jockey's guild meeting this year. Yeah. Really spectacular. And I mentioned that injury back on February first of two thousand fourteen take us back to that day. Tell people exactly what happened. And then take us through the preceding months as you started to kind of work your way back. You know, the the accident of probably one of those freak things that you you don't see much. It was in the paddock at aquit was going ahead to get on top of my horse and the horse kinda shied away. And it was a first timer. Never been on the track at all at aquit up. So, you know, I'm not sure how many people are familiar with the Akwa duck a paddock, but it's kinda push down into a bowl. You got people above them. So something spooked it and the way in and kicked kicked down and ended up getting the lower part of my right leg. I ended up breaking my tibia and fibula I had a plate in screws put into my via, and you know, for me, it was a long road of recovery. It'd probably took about three months before I could even put my foot on the ground and put some some weight on since you know, your tibia is your weight bearing bone in your leg. So you know, that took a lot of determination. And just really a lot of therapy are our friend Rajiv Mirage went through, you know, similar situation. And I know it's so hard on you guys. Because all you wanna do is ride and it gets to be frustrating. When you're out that long. Yeah. Definitely. I mean, unfortunately, I went through some other things during my time off, you know, few months after I did get injured my father, which is my best friend he passed away. And you know, that obviously took a big toll on me and about a year and a half after that my sister passed away. So that was probably part of the reason for so Stu lengthly layoff opposed to be injury at self during the course of that time, I actually took the opportunity to get the play in screws removed and this way when you know, the the idea behind that was when I did return, I didn't want something bothering me or something, you know, foreign to my body that will potentially interrupt anything that I any success that I had going on or any momentum. I I should say because that takes. About another three to four months to recover from. So I was able to to get that done and come back, mentally, and, you know, in the right mindset, you know, for me that was more important than anything. You know, have a lot of respect for the game and respect for everybody involved. Obviously, the owners and trainers, but obviously the grooms and exercise writers they put a lot of work into these horses. So I wouldn't come show up after the opportunity and not know that I'm a hundred percent in not just physically, but mentally as well, which is probably not just out of probably more important when it comes to an actually especially in horse racing. Your your dad was such a great guy used to sue him some days at Santa Anita in talk horses. He he loved the handicap you love the bat, and we we had some great conversations..
