"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.

"There was a recent survey done by the Chicago council global fares, they do this every year, and they asked people all across the United States, you know, should the United States being gauge in the world should the United States have a leadership position in the world. And somewhere in the like seventy to eighty percent of the respondents said, yes, the US should be gauged world Chevaliers position world, and those numbers are going up interestingly in the Trump era, those numbers are going up not down. So I do think that Americans do understand that an investment in the world in trying to address problems that exist out in the world redounds to our benefit. It's an investment in our own security as much as it's an investment in the conditions of others around the world like the problem is like with all things. Like that. It's in a more investment, if you put a certain amount of money into a country to help them build up a certain business, then they can trade with us. You can see that over time on a graph. But this idea of American influence throughout the world over time. You don't see the loss immediately because it's not a balance sheet anywhere. Do you think the issue of whether or not we should be involved in the world is beyond debate? Whereas at legitimate thing that people should talk about it. It's one hundred percent legitimate. It's legitimate to question what we're doing? We're doing it Howard doing it. I think that's that is sort of the essence of democracy, right? The only reason the United States is involved in various countries various places around the world is because we are trying to essentially fulfill one of the requirements in our constitution to provide for our common defense. Right. That's why that's why we're out there. The people ought to have. Say in this. My view is that it is hugely in our interest to spend the time spend the money have the people overseas, but to do so in a way that we rethink on Qasim basis, and I also think it is it is critically important that we explain what we're doing not in abstract notions of, you know, American exceptionalism, or you know, whatever it is. But why it is that if we invest in the education of some girl in refugee camp in Syria, where we invest in anticorruption efforts in Central America that that that helps the United States both be more secure it helps our prosperity. And frankly, it helps the image of America in the world, which in as you say morpheus ways, but in ways that ultimately are very real. Helps to protect the United States. Easy question. Yeah. In sixty seconds. Explain how we solve all of our issues with North Korea through sanctions. So I think the Trump can take you can take seconds. I think the Trump administration has screwed this up to a fair that will. And by that. I mean, he says it's all fixed. Yeah. That's that's why screw up. Right. I will give credit to the Trump administration to some extent. For a limited time in what they were doing it to beginning of this ministration in ramping up sanctions on North Korea. And they built on a foundation that have been laid. But did some significant steps to enhance the pressure on North Korea and to bring in Chinese to the offered those those sanctions that isolation of North Korea was starting to work. You could see it starting to work. Then you have Donald Trump. Just jump into the breach here in a way to sort of claim glory in this Singapore summit, and it destroyed everything that had been being built, right? So he comes out of that summit first of all with a declaration with Kim Jong Hoon that is fool's gold. Right. It's disarmament declaration where there's no substance to it. He then tweets that we have solved the problem of a nuclear North Korea on his way back home. He's recently told us he fell in love with Kim Jong. I remember that it was very very touching and the effect of that was to completely undermine the sanctions pressure. That was being built the Chinese in particular. But also the Russians are now essentially, not working with us or not working with us to the degree that they were previously to put pressure on North Korea and Kim Jong Hoon has since that. Summit taking a couple of steps that are completely reversible. Ultimately meaningless in terms of restricting his program. He's insisted that he only will negotiate with Donald Trump. So you've got Pompeo..

"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..

"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..

"Oh, and we can't have that. Whether you're talking about voting rights or discrimination, lawsuits or anything else. So lots of areas for concern on the other side, Bill bars a lot better than what we have. Now. He's about a thousand times better than that Whitaker both ethically. Both as a skilled lawyer as 'institutionalised, and I understand that. It's not great from certain people's perspective to say, we'll someone is better than someone else. Can we do better? It's not clear to me. And I'm not saying that this is a good reason to support Bill bar necessarily. But it's not clear to me in the current climate with Donald Trump liking toadies surrounding him everywhere and often leading in place in an acting capacity. People who are heads of offices and heads of agencies. This is a professional person in all my dealings with him. I found it to be. Professional smart. I thought he quitted himself in some ways very very well during the hearing even on the issue of Muller oversight. He made it clear to a roomful of senators on national television that he will not be bullied by the congress by the press or by the president. I take him at his word on that. And he will do only what he thinks is right now the things that he thinks. All right. You might not agree with? But I still think that's a good thing. You know, the interesting thing that some other people have noticed as well about the bar testimony is that he said something good I thought, and that is that it would be improper for a president to attempt to intervene in any enforcement matter that touched upon someone close to him a family member or business associate and in fact, an attempt to intervene in such a case would be violation of the constitutional of that was said by Bill bar. The question arises has President Trump Ori committed that violation because if you believe the reporting he looks like he tried to intervene. With spectra, Michael Flynn. And maybe other matters. He also reportedly did that with Matthew Whitaker when he saw to ask the question. How can you rain in the SDN y prosecutors who bring the case against Michael Cohen? So whether it's with respect to Michael Flynn or Michael Cohen, Donald Trump, arguably has already breached the oath and his duty as articulated by his own AG nominee Bill bar as he said repeatedly. He's eight years old. He's had the job before he doesn't have a future in politics. He doesn't really need to be beholden to anyone in. So even though I think his views on presidential power a little bit broad. He does bring professionalism to the job. I think he's he's a better choice than Jeff Sessions was I think he's a dramatically better choice than Matt Whitaker remaining in place would be and look I'm taping this on Wednesday morning and the hearings preceding, but I agree with everyone else who says given the numbers in the Senate and given how he didn't have any particular gaps yesterday. And given the status quo of met Whitaker. He'll be confirmed in my hope is separate apart from concerns about him that he will distinguish himself and that he will do good things, and he will work with both sides of the aisle to bring about things like sentencing reform and civil rights improvements, and given his friendship and respect for which made very clear friendship and respect for about Muller. Does not think country with the president says the Bob Muller would engage in a witch-hunt. And also his clear statements that it would be his intent to make public the findings made by Bob Muller. I mean that that said he Bill bars, smart guy, smart, also clever, and he left himself wiggle room on all manner of issues, including the nature and substance of a report he would put out how much will be made public, but he would recuse. So we'll see I think there's some reason for cautious optimism, but I could be wrong. And then you can all yell at me hipeet. This is Sean O'Neil from Sholomo Massachusetts. Your show is simply superb. It seems to me Robert Mueller generating a lot of Antalya cases that will require support from the US attorney's offices at various districts, what kind of shape are those officers in under the Trump administration, and they ready to play catcher to Miller pitcher, Sean..

"United States constantly meeting with Putin not wanting anyone to know what he said reciting Soviet era propaganda directly the Soviet line on the propriety wisdom of the Soviet Union going to have ghanistan lots and lots of credible reasonable people in the national security community in the intelligence community. And the political community have wondered aloud is the president taking direction from Russia. And or is he more interested in serving the interests of Russia than the United States? And so in the circumstance in which a president is privately expressing an interest in withdrawing from NATO, which I don't know any reasonable national secure. Official or defense department official thinks that's a good idea. If he's doing it at the behest of his friends Latimer Putin that is one hundred percent impeachable this next week comes from clicky fingers. The XL God, that's J WD who writes at pre Perera, I feel like partisans on both sides are out in full force today. And I don't know how concerned I should be about bar getting confirmed can you cut through the rhetoric on both sides and share your thoughts, hashtag ask Prete. Okay. Cookie fingers or Mr. X L God. However, you like to be addressed look you're talking about the confirmation hearing a much of which I watched yesterday which was January fifteenth Tuesday, and it's kind of a mixed bag. I will tell you in. I I've seen a lot of commentary and seen a lot of the reaction from both people on the democratic side in on the Republican side their deep concerns that people have particularly given the track record of Jeff Sessions and the issues relating to recusals and whether or not Bob Muller contained place so on the. Side of concern. You have I think legitimate issues raised with respect to Bill bar taking a slightly different approach slightly different. But significantly different approach to the issue of coucil than his predecessors. So Jeff Sessions made very clear in the Senate questionnaire that he would seek and follow advice of ethics officials. And then he ended up doing that and withdrew from any oversight responsibility of the Muller investigation. Bob bar in very different language. The he reiterated yesterday at his hearing says he will consult with the ethics officials doesn't say he will follow the direction given or the advice provided, but that he will retain I guess he thinks he has the right to as the attorney general the decision making authority on whether or not he has to accuse which leaves a lot of leeway. Because even if it's the case ethics officials when they do their analysis, and they look at the memo that he said, which took issue with the obstruction aspect of the rush investigation and other things if they advise him. That the best thing for purposes of appearance or otherwise is to recuse. He has reserved the right? Not to do that. I think that's bad. I think people should be concerned about that. He's also seemed to prejudge a little bit as I've mentioned some of these relating to what the presence of thirty is and what Muller's authorities. That's not good either third. I think there are legitimate concerns that in some ways even though Bill bar to his credit has some institutional memory of the department of Justice, and is a professional. He served his department twenty seven years ago and his views on crime, and on incarceration, admittedly were formed at a time when there was a huge crack epidemic and crime epidemic and violence pathetic. In many major cities in the country. It is not absolutely clear to me or to other people that his sensibilities about those things have changed significantly. He did in response to questions from Senator Cory Booker. I think express some change of of opinion and some growth in that regard. But I don't know how far it's gone. So they're legitimate things for people to be concerned about in addition. All of that vanita Gupta. Who's a former guest on the show?

"Okay. Let's get your questions. Hi, pre Louise in San Diego. And I'm wondering. Well, I'm totally freaked out by the fact that there's no readouts from from conversations meetings with Putin. And I assume that the senators know that I mean, if the public knows the senators, no, and I don't know why they're not more freaked out than than they have been and more wary of carrying out, his bizarre agenda. Anyway, thanks, I just needed to office. Even if it was just a line. Like, Louise, thank you for your honesty and candor with his back to your freak out and with respect to your question. As to why not more senators, and particularly in the Republican side are not freaking out. I I actually think that many of them are in every once in a while you saw Senator including chairman like Bob corker reveal his internal freak out when he would accuse the White House of being adult daycare. I think Mitt Romney probably is freaking out a little bit. He wrote that up Ed, which I think some people pooh-poohed, but other people welcomed, I think Mitch McConnell is freaking out in various ways. Even though he won't say it publicly he himself separate and apart from his concerns about how chaotic the White House's. He was fully humiliated by the president when he had a vote that got unanimous approval on a budget, even without funding for the wall. And then the president about face. So I think it's the case. And it's a theme we've been talking about week after week after. A week on the podcast that there's a lot of people who have problems with how Trump operates there are a lot of people who are really concerned about the Trump Putin relationship. The thing is talking about with the meetings and the readout are the series of discussions that Donald Trump and Latimer. Putin had in various cities, including Helsinki and Hamburg that the Washington Post has reported about suggesting that Trump is trying really really really hard to prevent the substance of those conversations from becoming no not just to the public. But also, even to the relevant internal high level White House staff, including the national security personnel, in some cases, the secretary of state and department of state, and that has a lot of people very concerned. It's got members of the house on the democratic side. So concerned they are considering as you may have seen in the news in the Washington Post article doing something fairly extraordinary issuing a subpoena to one of the interpreters who in at least a couple of instances was the only witness to the conversation between Trump and Putin. That would be an extraordinary measure. Later. But the problem with a lot of the things that Trump does is that it sometimes calls for extrordinary measures to try to undo the damage in make sure the information is known. I personally think it's a very serious step in a bad precedent to set going forward to the presence interpreter. But in a circumstance in which some people have ridden, including David from in a good article in the Atlantic in the last week, it may be a necessary step to take. So I appreciate your interest your frustration. Look, we all get frustrated the other night, I sent a tweet out when I saw the report that Donald Trump apparently has privately expressed great interest in withdrawing from NATO, and in my frustration, given the backdrop here, I sent out a, you know, somewhat ill-considered tweet where I said, you know, if this is true, Donald Trump should come forward state publicly his intent to withdraw from NATO. So he can be impeached and convicted by the congress to which a lot of people responded correctly, well, differences of opinion over policy are not a basis. Impeachment. And that is true. This is the problem with Twitter with two hundred eighty characters. Of course, that's correct. In part. I was showing the kind of frustration that I wish Republican senators show more of that you suggested in your call, but I will say that may be true the policy differences are not a basis for impeachment. But that depends on why one suggests they wanna withdraw from NATO and against the backdrop of the president of the.

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.

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..

"Company the, transfer that can fold regarding our friend David I. Couldn't do that right away I've actually come up I've spoken to Allen. Weisselberg about how to set the. Whole thing up with Yes And it's all the stuff because here you never know where that. Company Correct so I'm all over that and, I spoke to, Alan about it when it comes time for the financing which will be No no So financing what financing to, our, friend David that's their friend who owns that? Actual, acquire Financing, what, financing, then, you, heard, the, word. Cash and then you, hear, Cohen go no no no no no no no no no so, the, leftist, say, well, see, he wanted, to. Pay with, cash co was saying. Something about no no, no no no Donald Donald please you know we don't do that. We're not mafia chieftains but that's how the left is literally using the word mafia here Lanny Davis. Who's now, representing David Cohen represented Bill, Clinton, when he was being impeached that Lanny Davis Try. To spin this around, now, Rudy Giuliani who is representing Trump in this matter many other matters, says, no, no, no, I've, listened to, thousands. And thousands, of tapes over the. Years as prosecutor you're, not listening carefully so here's Guiliani telling us what he says really. Went down the fact is the president does bring up cash but he says don't pay with cash And then. Cohen says no no and the president says check, and then Cohen, says I got it The, president want the transactions, to be memorial So that's on the Ingram angle. On FOX so, we're talking, about, Michael Cohen the lawyer said David Cohen David the friend. Who owns the national choir and Donald Trump so, it's coming down to, this in my opinion this is the biggest nothing burger. Right here at CNN did their. Out bet I'll bet if. I, have it turned there this morning at sorry I'll bet if you, were to turn on to CNN right now. This is exactly, what they're still talking about the Trump tape Oh I. Bet you CNN That's fake news so you. Go to CNN dot com. Here the secret. Trump recording there you go Donald Trump discusses a, controversial payment with then attorney Michael Cohen in audio device CNN when when, his attorney was taping this that could be. Illegal, in it of itself Although it's interesting when, you when you listen to these guys talking Because. The audio, is actually a bit longer than what we gave you it's it's they're speaking as if Face suspect that the room is being bugged I will bet you when Trump does. Has, been doing business all these years up at they always. Talk in this this kind of code language yeah because he's probably always concerned that someone is recording him, I just willing to bet even. Playing at that high level of the business world in New. York City the tire conversations a bit, abbreviated it's just sort of weird and there's also. A woman president I don't know what her position is but she's speaking in the same, sort of manner it's. Literally as if they understand everything's being recorded now whether or not they knew David Michael. Kotas recording, things I don't know But, it's almost as if they're they assume they're being snooped. On very strange I wouldn't surprise me at all no not at all I'm on I I went to, all of the major fake news. Websites and that is the top line on all of them. MSNBC is Cohen taped show Trump knew, what was going on yeah ABC cash ABC's secret. Trump Cohen tape released what it is in dispute and then Fox News has Giuliani slamming, the release of that. But I mean Eight That is all they have on their. Websites it's, unbelievable This is. This is what they'll do they have an editorial position it's. A business decision. And they're not, gonna fleet from. It they're not moving they're not running they're not hiding so this is. Why Trump comes out there yesterday swinging as he speak I think. He, was speaking to the veterans of foreign wars group. Anyway he's He's talking and he he has. The fake news media right. Right assembled in the middle of the auditorium and he points. To them as. He says this, but remember they. Have the biggest best strongest lobbyists and they're doing a number just stick. With us don't believe that crap you see from these people the..
