"As they're now, as the FBI is saying that the attack was preplant. So the media pivots quickly when they hear these things, and they reported it very, very quickly. They're not staying on. But they're saying the department justice is saying that there are signs That the right of the capital Was was pre planned. So that that makes the Democrats look back. But we cannot have any of that. The Democrats can't look bad. So we have to pivot and say OK, well, let's let's go along that narrative, but It was probably An inside job. I've read that. You don't believe this was a spontaneous riot. That just sort of ran amok. Do you think that what they had inside? Help? I do believe there was some inside assistance. Yes. Somebody on the inside of those buildings. Were complicit in this. There is no doubt in my mind, no jail pop that there were people inside the Capitol inside law enforcement. Perhaps even other members of the other side that may have been involved in this. There was a sense that something was wrong balls and obviously with the violence, But there was a sense of something. Thistles, Russia Gate all over it. You know, I do think we owe it to the American people to understand. Know whether members of our own houses were working with these protesters. Okay, wait there, Swalwell. He wasn't no people in our own congress. We're working with the protesters when he himself was in fact sleeping with a Chinese spy rice leaving. We don't mean taking a nap. You know what I'm saying? Thank you. And on It sounds like a Cuban on conspiracy theory to me. No, but I'm sure I'm dead serious about this. I'm very distant from Cuban on. I'm just gonna I'm just gonna sandwich could be honest with you Those theories air, not for me. But what the left has been doing the left politically has been saying Q and R's weird. Those people are crazy conspiracy theories. They have zero proof of this. They're putting this out there into the atmosphere into the ether into the media landscape to try to convince people that the U. S. Capitol police was involved in and Quote unquote insurrection in the U. S. Capitol. Think about that allegation. That is an incredibly damning allegation, including AOC saying on her instagram page, there are white supremacists in Congress. That she's afraid of. Because there's these act evacuation zones in the capital. She didn't go to them because she's afraid those quote unquote white supremacists. We're gonna turn her over to the breach the people that reached the capital so they could torture her kidnapper or harm her. She's saying this again with zero proof None of those people have any proof. This was an inside job zero proof. It's their gut feelings they are essentially are Cuban on and find talk about killing on all you want. You're free to say whatever you want. But if you're becoming the left version won't be left version of Q and on and on and on. So let's just go the opposite into the Alfa again. That's our Let's all calm down. Calm. Deanna Ademola Damon Damon on that This is unbelievable to me. That they're allowed to say this. And Alison Camerata on CNN is asking. I understand that you believe in a conspiracy theory. Why don't you tell me what that conspiracy theory is that you have zero proof on okay, Great. Let's talk about this on CNN, watched by millions of this people get shared millions of more times on On Twitter and on Facebook. This is nuts or represent Jason Crouse is the biggest attack on any Internet. People have to wrap your brain around the fact that we've gone a week. I'm one of the biggest terror attacks in our nation's history, an instrument of the biggest terror attacks in our nation's history. See, they know that they were wrong. They know that they were wrong and preach impeaching Donald Trump saying that it was him that causes it was his speech that caused this Riot. And so they have to turn all of your attention away from that. So you just go along with the narrative, and that's it. This is this is how they're going to walk you down that road, and it's because once you say it, it becomes true. And that's why the Democrats partially rushed this impeachment through because they didn't want to wait for all the facts because they had to strike While the iron was hot as they say they had to maximize media coverage. They had to maximize it while Trump was still in office. Don't have time to wait to see if this was pre planned and have time to wait for fax. Never let facts get in the way of a good political push. I am so incensed at what is going on in Washington right now, because again we're being lied to. They're telling us a story that they want us to believe that all of us Mike Russell Me. You were all nuts were crazy while they're peddling conspiracy theories on the air as if they're true. What the you know what is going on? I firmly believe that No, not how about I have evidence? How about this as a because of a leader if you want to be in leadership of the leadership, the government's Start acting like that and say if you don't have evidence, don't say especially the Medicaid Congress who wants to set up truth commissions who was talking about media literacy when you're lying your face off. They're turning their attention. They're trying to turn your attention away from what they did on impeachment, and now they're turning.

What people need food on the table and we need to. We need a mass vaccination program. And as you just said, right before I pop on the show, which is zero federal leadership on this, he said.

"Thank you, Dr G Happy New Year to all of you from all of us here at America first Jennifer Horn in four. Seb, Gorka and we're going to jump right back into this story. Congressman Steve Stockman is with us right now. Welcome back Steve. He served in the United States Congress. He was a called the biggest thorn. In the side of the Obama administration, calling out all sorts of of wrongdoing that was going on with the administration. And because of that, Steve you yourself were targeted by the administration and ultimately found your way in to prison. Take us through in the essence of time. Just how this targeting went down and how you found yourself behind bars literally. And just receiving a pardon from President Trump last week. We'll give people a concept of the kind of DOJ wires they are remember. Adam Schiff of California congressman is a former DOJ attorney, and you saw how he made up evidence how he lied and how he created faults in narratives. And that's what they did. In my case, they create a false narrative. And then they spent four years pressuring. People can joing people in spending tons of money to formulate their narrative and then prosecute that could easily by the way, do it too. Current president and even Josh from the senator. Now I'm concerned for all things. Yeah, I'm concerned for all conservatives, because it's such a actually quite easily done with enough money and persistence, and we can't see what we can find out who the bomber is in 20 minutes, But we can't figure out what's up, Hunter. Hundreds laptop after mark about amazing to me, So when they went after they targeted people around you, they put pressure on people around you. These were donors, too. To your campaign or you to your pack, right? Don't know what it was, and he said. He's a great gentleman. We still I think I think he was pressure. There's only 22 donors. And one of them is is the largest Republican donor, and he's a great man and very compassionate, and I think they pressured him and then they pressured. A lot of other people. I mean, it's very intimidating. One of the one of the bin Widmore, who was the key FBI witness said he felt he felt terrible that he helped put innocents man in prison, he said, I have to live with the conscious of my life. They pressured him certain to take away his Children called GPS on him, and he documented that And they even even the judge told him not to give full answers. And then they discarded are our witnesses is just a whole host of things that really, and they also did this, too. Go ahead. I know you really have the full power of the Department of Justice, really sitting on you all the people around you and I know that there is ah, lot of correlations to be drawn. A lot of people who listen to this program know the story of Michael Flynn. And there are a lot of correlations to be drawn between you and Michael Flynn. Where the FBI, the DOJ, they're all sitting on you and the people around you. And then ultimately you end up in jail. Right. And then the guy that prosecuted me is now I got a promotion to head up to public Integrity section, which has a sordid past other ones that falsely prosecuted Stephen Sooner Stevens and in the book license, saliva, Cindy Power, which by the way, she came out and declared us, you know, she's seen so much bad things happen in our case. She She talked about how the DOJ went after me unfairly. So there's there's an element there in the department. Justice put their primarily by Liberal Democrats that have an agenda and they're going to exercise power that frankly, if we had the same power, we wouldn't do the same thing. They don't have moral principles. Like you know, conservatives really have a more moral compass. And frankly, when you don't have that compass, you're you're willing to do anything and exercise in such a manner. That is really undermines our nation. So when you first get into prison, and just in the essence of time, we only have a couple of minutes left with you, Congressman Stockman, But you get into jail. You have that You're diabetic. You were given nothing but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for for a long time. You're put in solitary confinement. Tell us what your time away. You were away for two years. I believe. Tell us what that was liking about 30 seconds cause we want to talk about your pardon. Well, actually, it was almost three years. I don't know The Preston cover the time in which the judge immediately locked me up. But at the end, he also handcuffed me at my chest and put what's called a black box in which they reserve for terrorists. And you know, notorious murderers and stuff. And they put it two guards in front of me. Two guards and back me. One guy asked me, you know. What did you do? What did you do? Because he was so shocked and I said, I railed up back to him. I said I can write. And you called out these people you tried to. You tried to get early release Steve because of the covert pandemic. You ended up getting Co vered in prison. But you had all sorts of people getting let out and you were still kept in prison. They were keeping you there 10 years. That was your fate until last week, and you got a call. Was it from the warden? How did that go down? How did you find out that you receive this presidential pardon? Well, it was computation so they could certainly back in jail, actually, but I found out I was in my cell and I thought they were thrown me what's called a shoe, which is solitary confinement. And the guard was from Nigeria. And he said, he said, Fuck ups look like pick up stuck me so he's telling me to hurry up and pack up. I said, Am I going to the Shu Mai going to the shoot? He should just pack up quick. And so several guys said You're going to the shu, dude. And then as I'm packing up The guy. Another concert came into Steve, You're going home, and I just I call my wife. We both were crying on the phone. I look forward to seeing President Trump up there in Mount Rushmore. He's not just for part of me. But for all the things he's done for our country, it's unimaginable. He's done in four years what presidents have done in eight years. He's amazing man. He's got such courage, and he never seems the waiver or is energy. I wish I had the energy that is for sure Keep. He's an amazing man who's righted a lot of injustices, and one of them was the fact that you were Sentence for 10 years treated like a terrorist, while others did not get that same treatment, Steve Stockman, we talk about equality in the law. And you are one example where that was not carried out. And right now what I want you to know is that Steve Stockman, his wife, Patty, who was an incredible advocate for over six years.

Well, then hear from Mayor Cooper. At this time, I'll turn it over to United States Attorney Cochran Have known 2020 has been a tough year for Nashville. Started back in March with devastating tornadoes that we had the torch through some of our neighborhoods. Continued through the pandemic and the events of this past summer and now this Cowardly bombing on Christmas morning. Right here in the heart of our downtown. Yeah. When they haven't heard about Nashville use in the time I've lived here is that they're tough and they stick together as a team, and that's what we're doing now. And I want you to know that the team is behind me. And the folks that they represent are doing everything we can to. Find out what happened here to get the answers that you deserve. And to make sure that we're all safe. So One of the toughest groups of folks we've got here in middle Tennessee is our law, enforcement of first responders and nowhere in my experience in law enforcement. Has that ever been plainer to me and what happened early yesterday morning? 6 15 6 26 30 years. So on Christmas morning, Metro Nashville police officers just number of blocks north of here didn't run away from danger literally ran to danger. Vehicle that was announcing that it was going to blow up. And Metro Nashville police officers instead of heading in the other direction headed towards that. They evacuated that area got all the citizens out of there. I'm quite confident that their actions are part of the reason why there was less cost of life in this heinous act. Sorry. Yesterday morning we had a task force came together and it didn't No. One time thing. This is what we do all the time. The U. S attorney's office.

The department justice, the acting attorney general has told me any resources we need. We can have the FBI and the A. T F have sent their most specialized bomb technicians here to Nashville. And as we speak, they are north of here, a number of blocks that he had a massive crime scene. Doing what they do. Doing frankly what they do better than anyone else in the world, and it's quite a challenge. Having been up there and seeing that scene, it's like a giant jigsaw puzzle created by bomb throws pieces of evidence across multiple city blocks. They've got to gather it. They've got to catalog it. They've got to put it back together and trying to find out what the picture of that puzzle looks like. But there's no one better to do it.

We're gonna get our infrastructure and the cell coverage back up and running because that's what we do in Nashville. Thank you for your time. I
Google's antitrust troubles
"After years, of scrutiny into big. Tech. Something is finally happening. Last year the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission open antitrust investigations of Google facebook Amazon and Apple. And now, a lawsuit against Google is likely to be the first real action taken against big tech. Joining me explain shrink Ghaffari a senior reporter here at recode. Hey, Seraing. Hey. So the Department of Justice is planning to file a lawsuit against Google any day. Now, what exactly are they claiming? Google has done? So we don't know the details of the lawsuit until it's filed, but we that generally, they're expected to accused Google of trying to disadvantage its competitors like Microsoft's Bing which another search engine by not sharing data with them and the data that other companies need to thrive. We also know that they're looking into their search advertising. So Google controls, a sale of both that toolset people used by ads as well as the actual space under the searches. So that could be accomplished conflict of interests at the Justice Department accused glove. So what exactly is at stake here? Google obviously, they're gonNA throw every lawyer and lobbyist and smart person they have their at this lawsuit but one of the stakes for one of the world's biggest companies. I. Mean the stakes are huge. This is probably the biggest existential threat to Google business right now because the most extremity would be to try to break up Google business and separate business from its other businesses the you can accomplish that that's right but. In reality, these kinds of cases are going to take years to resolve, and that's the kind of Microsoft. But just the fact that Microsoft was under the Lens of an antitrust lawsuit prevented it from being able to really dominate the Internet the way that that was trying to. Write. This is the antitrust lawsuit brought by government against Microsoft in the ninety s when Bill Gates was running the company and write a lot of people think that ultimately it it led to at least a momentary fall in Microsoft stature Christopher. There are spending so much time fighting the feds that's right and yeah, we saw Microsoft back author trying to bundle their hardware with their software in terms of browsers as aggressively. So, serene care about big fancy lawsuits or big tech companies scrambling behind the scenes and you just care about Google the product you use every day. What could this lawsuit mean for them? It's too soon to say for sure but ultimately could impact what you see when you type in something on Google right? Because if Google has to be fair to other competitors, they may have to make sure that when you search in, let's say a restaurant name that you're not seeing Google's reviews for that. Restaurant over yelp earn other company. We don't know this is going to end up going not far but that's just one example of how Google's competitors have said that if antitrust action were taken at a severe level that this could help consumers potentially because they would see not just the suspect Google wants to promote in terms of its own businesses when you search things but other players to, and we take a step back from Google specifically, we're expecting this lawsuit right to be at the front. Edge of a wave of new scrutiny on big tech companies that isn't just you know people yapping tweeting or complaining I mean, this could be the first of several lawsuits, right? That's right. A bunch of states may join onto this lawsuit They can also file independent ones so and you know several states have signaled to do that So this is just the beginning of Google's headache. They're also facing potential congressional action at a Democrat led House Committee is going to is is. Expected to publish a report about Google and the other big tech companies and their antique potentially anticompetitive practices this coming week as well. So just the beginning of people's problems on this front, right this feels to me like the beginning of a new era were. It's not just complaints and talk, but now we actually have real punitive action if the department justice wins this lawsuit could Google look like in a couple of years tell me about what the worst case scenario for Google is. I mean I will. I. Will Nuances with like. We are seeing the beginning of the beginning of action, but it is a very politicized action under the current DOJ and a lot of people think that the Jake is rushing this one out because they bill bar attorney general wants to get this out before the

view on this is that is is Andrew McCabe being called to testify as one of those fifty three subpoenaed witnesses he's on the list J. that's going to get a vote tomorrow in the committee to subpoena will be it'll be interesting to see how Andrew McCabe replies J. he might want to respond to some of this actually but I would just quickly tell you Steen may I go ahead you're gonna tell your your pension back you don't respond that that that's going well if I could go ahead that's a civil case you can use that as if it's if he took the fifth the guy was covering up wrongdoing he would build his pension back good intention might not be worth avoiding prosecution but well I guess we'll see on that but I I would tell you this rod Rosenstein might try to blame Andy McKay but he was still the one that appointed a special counsel while admitting today there was no predicate to do so he was still the one that signed the FISA application when there was no predicate to do so and by the way the very first piece of sound the chairman Graham played was rod Rosenstein in may of twenty eighteen after all of the same that's why we have someone sign off on this to make sure that it's safe guarded well guess what it's it wasn't drawn application so which way is it it wasn't safe or not any let me ask you this you've done this before too and complex cases where you've got and you've got this with with grand juries when you have fifty three witnesses that are gonna become forced to test my number so the Senate's not a grand jury but you're trying to get the truth I mean that's the ultimate goal is can we get to truth eight scenario starts emerging as these witnesses testify separately you start to be able to pinpoint what's going spike to our audience how that process would work especially in a situation where you might well have fifty three witnesses well you have a it's a large puzzle really and you're trying to put the pieces together and you have fifty three pieces of the puzzle let's say that may lead you to fifty three more pieces of the puzzle because questions lead to other questions and what we're trying to do and what the Senate and senator Graham as chairman of the Judiciary Committee is attempting to do a much to the chagrin of the Democrats who say that it's ridiculous to do it of course they would say that but what he's trying to do is to piece together the puzzle of several years of mismanagement within the justice department allies omissions falsehoods and things that should not have been done this is what a grand jury by analogy J. does this is not a grand jury the Senate cannot indicted cannot prosecute but what it can do is put together for legislative purposes and oversight reasons and rationale what happened and the way you do that he's call in these witnesses and will Graham as the Republicans are doing the Democrats are really not not participating because they don't want to be a part of this really but grill them and get the full picture of the puzzle and put it together it's a long process it's a laborious process but the end results are really getting to the truth all right let me let me play this for you we we talked about it with singer Holly and rod Rosenstein again specifically on did you review anything did you know anything that you were signing off on it because you just testified to sit you didn't actually take a listen by forty three he also testified today that you didn't read it so I'm curious why didn't say how is it you would you would you like us to have your testimony read back to you said I can't say that I read it I don't think I read every page I mean yes I did say that yes but okay so you didn't rubber stamp it but you didn't read it you know center I have to explain the process I think we're familiar with the process I. G. gave us the process by the time it got to you you had seventeen a critical errors falsehoods omissions leading a federal court to say they have never seen it like this in the catch was anything else the FBI says and you sign off on it not to me the item I'm reminded of the theories before by people like Andrew Weissmann and others who were on Bob Muller's team now fundraisers for Joe Biden is Mike Lee pointed out.

"J. Knowles and you can find me at the Michael Knowles show podcast one of the talk over the past few days is about how big tech is trying to undermine and sensor president trump and this White House and one story that's been kind of blown out of the news conveniently is how actually that attempt to undermine the president has gone a lot deeper than just some big tech companies it's gone all the way to the operational ons of our federal government the unmasking of Michael Flynn the the spying on the trump campaign the politicization of the DOJ and the FBI here to help us shed a little bit of light on what went on is Matt would occur the former acting Attorney General of the United States and the author of above the law the inside story of how the justice department tried to subvert president trump thank you so much for being here I am glad to join you today thank you so I am so eager to hear this story I unfortunately don't have a copy of the book yet but I'm really eager to read the book what you need to get one I know I do need to go no I'm really eager to read this book because this is a story that has been banned from the airwaves more or less the mainstream media try to cover this up and obviously the bad actors and governments have tried to cover this up as well and you had as close a look at it as as anybody in obviously have have been involved in trying to shed light on that can you can you tell us what we don't know what what's coming out now and we're not hearing well I think I think we need to understand that there's a way to do it best gauge that the department justice it's obviously the policies and procedures very clear and there is no doubt everything we've learned to this point that those rules and regulations and procedures were not followed in this Russia collusion stable investigation and I think this book that I wrote is the first time that much should be stories have been strung together would you take what happened at the you know the president in the Michael Cohen situation when they made him pay you know essentially other indicted co conspirator which again I explained the book was inconsistent with the way things are done part of justice the way Michael Flynn has and continues to be treated with this judge and the district of Columbia that is so creating extra judicial proceedings I mean I think each one of these instances is where regular order wasn't followed the Carter page FISA you know the renewal of the FISA statue all of these things is I've consolidated trying to put all in one resource in this book a store call accurate accounting of the first two years a year half of which I was there not only as chief of staff general sessions but I was acting Attorney General for months and so I try to put it all together resource it but the references so that the reader can follow along and strings together and really for the purpose make sure this doesn't happen again market citizen or another presidential candidate right when you mention these individual episodes it occurred to me as as they were happening I thought you know that seems a little weird all that that seems like maybe the DOJ is acting the way it should have for the F. B. I. R. Hyde said that all of these little incidents seem to add up to a much bigger story that's the story that you're telling in the book will the bad actors here be brought to justice I think a lot of people are clamoring for that they want them to be held held accountable and we're not seeing a whole lot of that no and this is the thing that I heard everywhere I went after I left the department justice last year and that is when will somebody be held accountable we know that this happened we see these bad actors three of which are on the cover of my book Jim call me any McCabe and straw and so I think that day is coming I I'm actually optimistic that John during the U. S. trade out of Connecticut was asked to look into really the entire Russian collusion investigation where there was never any evidence of collusion that and and and every time there was not evidence but the investigation trucked on for almost three years and you know I think it's very important that people are held accountable I also think it's important we hang a lantern on their behavior not for the purpose my book is to demonstrate where these bad judgment was exercised bad decision making a law was broken rules were broken so that people can understand you know how we got to the point where you know Muller desk you should dominated the news cycle ride every day for two years right that's right and and I think this is the key here because you're not going to see anyone held accountable until people know the story and I think a part of the way that a lot of these bad actors in government have gotten away with with these outrages over the past few years is that it's kind of complicated and it's kinda hard to see the relationship of one episode one incident to another one but I I I'm really pleased that you wrote the book I can't wait to read it myself and I just really thank you for all the work you've done we're up against a wall here but we have Matthew Whitaker the former acting Attorney General of the United States thank you so much Sir I appreciate it thanks all right we've got a whole lot more to get to we got to take a quick break those who do not go anywhere I'm Michael Knowles filling in for the band the Shapiro show a lot more coming up don't touch that radio dot seven million days ABC news at five thirty I'm Kevin for.

The Hill criticizes, but does not recant, Solomon articles
"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G. C. P. O. a with with a bomb and reminding them that you know if it weren't ratified by the Senate with people work much he was so upset about that so they just it's very interesting what Murphy gets upset about and when he does
DOJ won't pursue criminal charges against McCabe
"D. O. J. will not prosecute former FBI director Andrew McCabe deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe although he was acting director for a while McCabe of course a frequent target of the president's tweets and this as we learn the justices taking another look at the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and of course all eyes got wider jaws dropped yesterday to hear Attorney General bill Barr tell the president to stop tweeting about his department in light of the Roger stone case and how many years that presidential confidante may go to prison for well it's now checking with Washington post reporter Robert Costa who is also the moderator of Washington week great to have you back Bob thank you so much right to be with you well so much going on here let's start with Michael Flynn the the the store your paper has that been reported today what's going on here between this is the in this investigation you see Attorney General bill Barr in a stand off with president trump about the integrity and independence about the department justice not only to Roger stone case from earlier this week and his sentence scene that led bar to give an interview to ABC news but now you see the department is making its own decisions on moving forward did it look at general flow at the lieutenant general Flynn and whether he his case was properly prosecuted if the Attorney General doing his own thing taking his own initiative about bar still has an uncertain future as the classes with the president right this is the the new set of arguments between the president and I one of the people that works with him what about McCabe could that be a big gear into irritant for Donald Trump it is in president trump facing a lot of challenges right now and because at one level you have an Attorney General who is defended him throughout the Muller investigation you have an Attorney General as The Washington Post reports today has passed outside prosecutors in this is in the deputy Attorney General's office in Saint Louis to review handling the criminal case about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and others political figures two on one level he's very much a loyalist to president trump but the the DOJ's refusal to prosecute McCabe the sentence scene of Roger stone earlier in the week has infuriated the president and you see HIM lashing out in this post acquittal phase of his presidency all right let's switch gears to the democratic presidential race and of course New Hampshire primary just few were few days past that now it's on to Nevada and South Carolina what's going on here with the front runner Bernie Sanders said how strong of a front runner he is he at this point he's strong winning the New Hampshire primary is no joke but it was a narrow win over former south and mayor Pete booted judge they now heading to South Carolina which was a tough state for Sanders in twenty sixteen secretary Clinton came back after Sanders beat her in New Hampshire if she came back in South Carolina but Sanders has made a lot of ground with African American voters in the last four years what really matters is not just South Carolina and the Nevada caucuses but super Tuesday in early March fourteen states will vote a huge amount of delegates will be awarded Sanders looks perhaps strong it's in the California primary estate full of progressives and liberals and his campaign feels good about that and and that the the fact that they feel like they're in it for the long haul finals two seconds here to talk about Joe Biden not dead yet by far especially if he does well in South Carolina but if his campaign flames out cannot be attributed to president trump painting him not as a great statesman or as a long time senator but as hunter Biden's daft that could be part of the factor the impeachment and the wear and tear but don't count out the Bloomberg factor as well mayor Bloomberg has been hovering over the biting campaign for months and that's only escalated in recent weeks as Bloomberg has spent millions in advertising in early states and he's seen a poll numbers rising now black voters in moderate voters in the Democratic Party have another option a well funded option and that's been a big problem for biting Bob good to talk again thanks so much thank you Washington Post Robert Costa moderator of Washington week airs tonight at eight on TV
What U.S. Religious Liberty Means — Especially When It Comes To Islam
"The trump administration is made religious liberty a central theme of this presidency for example the US department of health and Human Services now has a conscience and religious freedom division the president has champion judges who have ruled in favor of people seeking religious exemptions to laws and just last month the White House strengthen protections for kids who want to pray at school as mood and is part of my dean is part of the inclusive America project at the Aspen Institute she is also the author of a book on religious liberty called when Islam is not a religion she told me that president trump's focus marks a change from previous administrations there has been just a more pronounced public affirmation of the positive role of religion in American society the need to protect it often we hear from various government officials whether be Mike Pompeii or president trump or US Attorney General bill Barr or even just sessions when he announced religious liberty task force of the department justice is constant refrain about religion is under threat by secularization threatening forces but on on the left to the protection of religion and the protection of our religious freedom that has become a constant refrain what communities have benefited from the administration's attention to the issue or their religious communities that have essentially been left out yeah so we can then candidate Ted Cruz said that it was he called it the religious liberty of election and he said that it was ultimately about like the person who would be able to defend religious liberty the vast and president trump and Ben Carson I'm ricksantorum all got on the bandwagon said absolutely this is about religious liberty and we're going to protect religious liberty for elected president but at the same time as they were making the statement there also competing with each other to determine who could be the most discriminatory against Muslims whether it be present from suggestions about creating a Muslim registry or about banning Muslims from U. S. which as we know when he has before with that as well or be Ted Cruz's suggestion that we surveil Muslim neighborhoods in the aftermath he brought that up in the aftermath of a terrorist incident or ricksantorum saying that Islam absolutely was different from Christianity fee so that is not ours protected under the first amendment as Christianity is and so there was like this obvious hypocrisy so what you saw was a creation of a hierarchy of faith even within this world of law to me yes I even beyond just the creation of a hierarchy I actually saw denial of a song even being a religion that had access through religious freedom another suggestion that present from brought up during the campaign was to close down mosques when you create such as Turk disparity between types of things that you're willing to protect for quote unquote religion and then say that the most basic of religious freedom rights are not afforded to a particular group of people you know how exactly are you explaining that what's the logic there and it didn't take much to figure out what that is because unfortunately increasingly common talking point among many people in the White House and in that sort of larger network is that Islam is not a religion it is a dangerous political ideology and therefore Muslims don't have religious freedom rights can you think of a policy directive from the trump administration that on paper looks good for religious liberties but in reality has really only been and that positive for evangelical Christians more or less just one group well I think that even in the space of Christianity increasingly you hear this I'll cry from our progressive Christians that they feel that the way that Christianity is being defined and champion tends to only happen from this particular angle and of course a constant concern in the context of specifically the sexuality related culture wars is that the rights of LGBT individuals including all your between the visuals of faith or people who hold different positions on abortion contraception from real religious standpoint are being undermined and to that end I think that is has to come from an understanding that religious liberty is not in some way just to safeguard for traditional religious beliefs it is a secret just for beliefs of a wide diversity anywhere they fall on the political spectrum and again the diverse religious spectrum and so what I hope for and I do see some movement on this for more progressive religious liberty groups to bring to the fore more progressive religious claims and say look religious liberty is for this too my concern is that if the rhetoric in the op in the enforcement of some of these policies continues to be only it's thought through in the frame of traditional religious beliefs then there will be other types of religious claims I won't be as protected I don't really have a concrete examples are not being protected but I do see this increasing sort of urgency from our progressive groups to be like what we have these claims to and because religious liberty protects the range and doesn't privilege one particular interpretation or another that are religious claims are also protected husband Jean thank you so much for speaking with us thank you as a dean is part of the inclusive America project at the aspen institute and the author of the book when Islam is not a

I. A. R. notified the FBI that quarter page with not working for the Russians he in fact was working for the CIA they continued with the investigation and where was the I a leadership stepping in and saying wait a minute we gave you information that Carter page was working for us yet you're continuing to do surveillance on him and getting five application and and you know trying to paint him as as a as a foreign agent when he wasn't and my concern is those people that were involved with all of this when the dorm report comes out I only hope that they don't get a slap on the wrist and well you know they did this but don't do it again well I hope it helps it's a great question and it's because you're thinking person and of that thinking person like yourself would wonder why didn't they jump in a stop it they knew that Carter page was not a Russian asset he had done work for them so I don't know it seems to me that there has to be some corruption for heaven's sake she read Brandon you ed clapper we know these guys would lie and they they didn't seem to have a problems I certainly didn't appear they had a problem lying under oath because they did have to come back and say you know that that one anchor at least but that just appears to be another problem and look I'm not expecting anything from Horowitz report we got to the first indication back when he did the report on struck him page and when he came before us as it look you got hundreds of pages documented of the just the worst kind of bias and prejudice against trump and yet you conclude you throw the big bone to the Democrats that put you in your position and said but there's no indication that that affected any any of the investigations and you know the fact that every single investigation turned out a hundred percent consistent with their bias and prejudice should have been a clue but Horowitz is out there yes he shows some corruption but then the soft petals and back panels so I'm hoping more from Durham and bar than I have seen at all from from Horowitz but Jane please keep thinking like you are that was that that's a great question they should have protected Carter page let's take a call from Tulsa Oklahoma Travis welcome to the show on hand pardon okay got twenty seconds Travis got a question right quick help all right will hold him over but will.
"department justice" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"Well I think if you know a kept careful read of the report shows that most of the blame at least that the inspector general is placing on the department is with respect to a failure of the FBI to a prize department of justice attorneys those in the chain of review of Feiss applications of all of the pertinent facts and relevant facts that which should have been provided and not only to the department justice officials but also many facts that should have been provided to the court and so AT and and I'm not here to you know trash the the FBI there are very good people excellent people there who try very hard every day and I'm very careful every day to make sure that their face applications are one hundred percent accurate but obviously the inspector general's report found a number of deficiencies in this particular FISA application and so I'm not at all surprised that the chief judge of the FISA court has asked for the government to answer to those at to those misrepresentations in those emissions and explain what intends to do to rectify the situation you're saying that that that if employees of the FBI were were trying to look at Carter page for example they might not have been totally forthcoming about things that for example may have seemed less suspicious about this former trump campaign aide that information never even made it into the department it at like the level where you were working that's correct and you know it's it's it's similar of FISA application is not that much different than say an application for a search warrant or an application for it title three worn in normal criminal case in the process is different the court it goes to is different because the FISA court but the FISA court is made up of article three judges the same judges that sit in criminal cases and any time that a department of justice lawyer or prosecutor is going to be submitting an application for any type of search or surveillance to any court they are reliant on information provided by law enforcement sometimes that might be local law enforcement sometimes it might be the FBI sometimes it might be other law enforcement and so the in this case the bureau of course the the the that the strength of the application is dependent on the information provided by the bureau to the department of justice and the department justice of course is the only entity that can make applications to the FISA court for these orders so it's a a union or Yang relationship the the FBI needs the department the department relies on the FBI and the FISA court realize of course on both and the FISA court now saying that they can't necessarily rely on on the F. B. R. the department to be truthful even in in future applications of what needs to be done here what needs to be fixed well I think what you're going to see and we've already seen out of director ray in forty different recommendations are forty different things he intends to change about the process I think we're going to see a much more rigorous review of the factual accuracy of every assertion made in a FISA application so there is a procedure that the FBI uses and it's a creation of something called a woods file named after the FBI assistant director who came up with this notion which is a file where every single factual assertion is stored it's where any kind of derogatory or negative information is stored any kind of information as you indicated earlier David that would tend to suggest that maybe the the target of the application is less culpable and so the I think what we'll see is a much more rigorous of review to make sure that everything that is in that woods file first of all that everything's in there and that everything in that woods filed it needs to be present at the department of justice and needs to be presented to the FISA court will in fact be present at ma'am accord was a longtime justice department official now with Georgetown University Law Center thank so much your time this morning really Christian you're welcome Boeing's decision to suspend production of its seven thirty seven MAX airplanes has hit the airline industry but it probably won't stop there Boeing is this country's most important industrial company so important that the decision to stop making the plane is expected to cut into US economic growth on the whole NPR's Jim zarroli has the story in October Boeing CEO Dennis Muhlenberg appear before a congressional committee to apologize for the seven thirty seven MAX crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed three hundred and forty six people and he said government officials should keep the plane on the ground as long as necessary regulators around the world should rigorously scrutinize the Max and only approve its return to flight when they are completely satisfied with its safety and that's what regulators around the world have done refusing to say when the seven thirty seven Max will fly again throughout this crisis Boeing has continued to build the planes and park them in giant facilities in Texas in Washington state now it's shutting down production Boeing is just one company but it's an enormously important one it's the biggest US exporter and the seven thirty seven Max is by far its biggest selling plane says Gregory Dacko of Oxford economics Boeing is a big company and the seven three seven is the largest share of its production of of aircraft about eighty percent of the plans produced by Boeing are the seven three sevens Jacko says because of the decision to stop making the plane US economic growth will tumble over the next few months at an annual rate of half a percentage point it's a view shared by other economists the impact will be so great because Boeing has tentacles throughout the manufacturing sector says aviation consultant Ross immer there are hundreds of sub contractors whom supply engines and other parts to Boeing they're going to be affected that includes big companies like General Electric which makes engines for the seven thirty seven and spirit aviation services which makes assorted aircraft parts they and many smaller companies will now have to decide how long they can afford to keep their factories open and their workers working as for Boeing it says it won't lay off anyone with the job market so tight the company is reluctant to see skilled workers walk out the door but the company has lost billions of dollars since the plane was grounded and Gregory doctor says he could be forced to cut jobs as the month Strathcona some of these employees will be geared towards other parts of Boeing's production chain but that being said I would be surprised that as we move into twenty twenty there will be some layoffs announced that guy says that could lead to the loss of thousands of jobs next year alone none of this includes the potential impact on Boeing's customers the airlines both domestic and foreign carriers have had to reduce flights in recent months because they haven't been able to fly there seven thirty seven Max's and that's cut into the money they make one of the worst hit has been southwest which operates more of the plane than any other carrier yesterday southwest said it would have to cancel more flights at least the rate bro Jim zarroli NPR news New York in Pakistan a country long dominated by its armed forces a military dictator has been sentenced to death for high treason for suspending the

"President trump tonight today that he said anything inappropriate to a foreign leader trump is defending himself because of a whistle blower complaint within the spy community that allegedly accuses him of doing just that a new Washington post reports cites anonymous sources saying the complaint involves Ukraine Congress has been trying to find out first hand what was said but they're not getting anywhere with the administration when the inspector general of the intelligence community Michael Atkinson testified before the house the agency watchdog refused to share that's frustrated California Democrat Adam Schiff he's the chair of the house intelligence committee I spoke with him earlier today and I began by asking him why the justice department is saying that he can't see the substance of this whistleblower complaint will be clear our frustration is not with the inspector general inspector general's actually done exactly what we would hope inspector general will do and that is review the complaint to an investigation determined to crack the if it's credible and he did and found it was and he also found it was urgent and then he refers it to the director of national intelligence who has a week to review it before they shall transmit to Congress when the director did not do so and didn't even inform us that he withheld the complaint inspector general came to our committee and said the process has broken down but the director of national intelligence Joseph acquire as you said it is part of his job to determine whether a complaint is legitimate right before he decides whether or not Congress even needs to know about it and he says the complaint wasn't serious enough to tell Congress about so why not respect that decision well that's not really the decision that he made the director has a week to review the complaint and then the statute says he shall provided to Congress along with any comments you want to add to the director can say I don't agree with the complaint or I don't think it's credible I disagree with the inspector general but there's no authority to withhold it from Congress the whole point of whistleblower statute was to give a whistleblower who sees misconduct an Avenue to bring that to. attention of Congress so there's no discretion here for the director and it's important to point out too that the director isn't saying this isn't serious he isn't saying this isn't urgent he's just saying that this is outside of the jurisdiction of my office and therefore I'm not required to transmit the complaint an inspector general disagrees with that vehemently he says it is clearly within the most important responsibilities of the director of national intelligence it's also clear that the director of national intelligence is operating under guidance that's been given to him by a bill Barr's justice department and they're not eager for Congress to get this information but I want to jump in on that because I can't there has been some historic question about the the division there between the executive branch and Congress it's been said from various news reports that the complaint has something to do with the phone call between president trump in a foreign leader isn't it the president's privilege to say whatever he wants to another foreign leader. no it isn't it's not prevalent the presence privilege for example to engage in criminality if the president were making a criminal bargain with a foreign leader he would be no more protected than your I and in fact the claim of privilege doesn't cover criminal or fraudulent activity and hear the whistle blower complaint according inspector general contains credible evidence of wrongdoing and so wrongdoing but you don't know if it's criminal we're still trying to figure out the substance we are trying to to determine what the substance is but we know this the inspector general found that it was an urgent matter that needed congress' attention and that met all the requirements of the statute and if any party whether it's the department justice or the White House or someone indeed who may be the subject of the complaint is able to deprive that deprive Congress of that information simply because they choose to then the whistleblower statute doesn't work at all I'm chills people from coming forward about that because you said earlier that you had some concerns about national security here and also about a protections for the whistleblower themselves are you worried that something could happen to them some action could be taken against them I am worried about it because the import of what the department justice is said here and this is why this is so destructive is that we don't think that this complaint qualifies for protection which means that the complainant doesn't qualify for protection so that seems to open up the door for any agency to retaliate against any whistleblower if someone in the administration decides they don't want to qualify for protection and that would of course undermine the whole thing which would mean that people vertically in the intelligence community who are dealing with classified information and and have no other way to report wrongdoing we have to conclude this process just doesn't work and some of them may go outside of the law to provide classified information to the press or use other means which is not what we want to and. courage we wanna courage the lawful provision of evidence of wrongdoing to the Congress so that we can take action one more thing we already know president trump speaks freely about security issues ready told North Korea how the US was watching their rocket engine tests he told the Russians about Israeli spying on ISIS he tweeted a photo from highly classified spy satellite what difference does it make at this point what can you actually do about it. well we can enforce the law and we're looking at the remedies that we have right now I think if there's a trial what ace well I I think there there are several but I think there's any case to get expedited court review in the form of a tear roll or preliminary injunction or men damos it's here where the inspector general said this is an urgent matter and were clearly affects national security but we can also look at frankly depriving the office of the director of national intelligence of funding when they come to us for reprogramming requests or other reasons until they comply with the law so we have financial leverage but the the fact the matter is that. I have the debate is taking and this is urgent and we need to get answers that chairman Adam Schiff of the house intelligence committee thank you for speaking with us

S. citizens reports stocking crimes the United States department of justice stocky victimization survey in the year two thousand six alone they reported that they were being stalked by a group of three or more people so that amounts to well over four hundred and forty one thousand eight hundred people reported being subject to organize talking to the department justice survey alone in other words this report doesn't include all reportage organize stocking crimes the police F. B. I. in related authorities in two thousand six only those victims that happen to hear about and report to the United States department of justice stocking victimization survey in the year two thousand six in this official document adds irrefutable evidence irrefutable credence to the scale of organized stocking bits epidemic now and further proves a massive and widespread occurrence or come currents of the claims in the United States now mind you mind control devices and stocking every so advanced to condition the victim into submission there are simple things like a cell phone or they're simple things like a doorbell ring they're simple things like knocking at the door honking of horns by cars all of these things to wake you up in the middle of the night you're wondering what is at horn always honk at three in the morning why is that I'm always hearing this thing happened why is that person in the red shirt always walking down the streets I've never seen this person before who is this person if this person stocking make it you know we always hear of the electronic harassment there are other things so that would indicate that you're being stalked or you're being targeted doctor John Hall is with us tonight on ground zero and he is giving us the lowdown on what all of this gang stalking is in by Dr John holes a medical doctor he specializes anesthesiology's written some very good books on the subject matter Guinea pigs technologist control and a new breed satellite terrorism in America and and you know I brought that up because I think a lot of people you know I know that on my show I talk about all these what I would call black mirror scenarios where we're seeing how electronics are influencing our lives and then when we talk about electronic harassment we tend to think that well if I'm not anywhere near the internet of I'm not anywhere near this I'm not going to be affected that's not true is it now now that's not true I mean most a lot of this is satellite based in now that we're are done dealing five G. that's yourselves when satellite honor so you know five G. will be so many so many columns it's only towers that they'll be no escaping it but you're right on the physical aspect of this talking down to intimidate the victim of that is very common and it's like you said it's ringing the doorbell you know at three and four in the morning and then they leave or even just sitting in a car outside and this happens a lot member you'll have somebody just sitting in their car outside your home you know now I I live out in the country would be very obvious you have to drive a car road to do that to me but if you live in a normal neighbor and you see every night at midnight some guy pulls up at the end of your drive and sits on the curb in this car in you can call the police but the police can't do anything about it because as long as they're on a public roadway there they're perfectly within their right to do that but it still meant to freak you out and give you a state of anxiety another real common one is becomes a tell me well I I know they are on my house I could hear footsteps on the roof well I hired counter PI sexy surveil the domestic Gators that do this type of stock it in Texas so I did learn some of the techniques and one of the things that they would do is they would hire five or six people and they would come out at midnight to a victim's house and throw rocks on the roof well on a slanted roof when you throw a big enough rocket there it sounds like foot steps on a roof as it hangs its way down and off of the house in a live you know tell some of these victims would be to check for that and sure enough they would go into the backyard and they would find you know twenty you know three four inch in diameter stones you know back there were you know a group of people were just throwing rocks on the house and and that's meant to sleep deprived you look at the ultimate goal of the stocking and some of this is to draw you a psychiatric diagnosis so when you're home gets broken into and things are gone through and you know things are gone cigarettes are left in your house and you don't smoke things like that tiles or changed or you know maybe it may be an entire wall has been repainted in the initial thing is people think well it's a P. I. groups are coming and they're cutting hidden cameras and microphones and and they may be doing that but a lot of it is they want you to know that your house has been entered because when you call the police and you say well somebody got in but I don't see any signs of breaking and entering and they took all my shoes and they put him on the island in my kitchen and they painted this wall read it used to be one well the police the first thing they ask the victim is was anything stolen now they didn't steal it well you sure union lawyer shoes in there and you don't remember it for you you sure that this wall wasn't always read them I mean it it's it's meant to draw you a psychiatric diagnosis and also meant to alienate you called police help because after you call the police report times with these type of components on the computer at the police department they'll put a little last respects your name that you're one of those crazy people that think their microwave is attacking or things that somebody's breaking in but there's never been evidence of a break in you have to remember the people that are hired to do this are often former CIA informer at the I yeah they have the devices to open your garage they have the know how to pick your locks and breaking your door without kicking the door at and once you're under monitoring they also know the code your alarm so when they come in there they're going to you on set your your alarm if you have one and they're going to reset it back before you go I even had one victim dead when I help them we called one of the alarm companies it will monitor their alarm and they couldn't figure out why if the alarm was going off why nobody showing up well all the numbers that the alarm company had been changed by one so when the alarm would go off their cell phone number was off by one digit the police number was off by one digit the fire number one off by one digit so even if they tripped the alarm the alarm was going to call anybody that was going to help that person what about fishing schemes for harassment because I know that you know most people don't think twice about if somebody calls up they sound like they're authoritative and they say something like we need information about this could you give us your phone number could you give us this he would just for verification I would say no if you called me you know my phone number if you could if you called me you know this information I'm not going to give it to you because what they do is they record the conversations and they find ways to use your voice in order to order things you didn't order or the use your voice in order to sign you up for things that you didn't sign up for and so then you find yourself in a situation where you're wondering why you're getting all this stuff for you getting all this junk mail you're wondering why you're getting all these harassing phone calls it's because somebody used to you in and they and they use of forty to get your information from you and once they have the the information they can do whatever they want to you yeah I left the stadium and the often times the elderly really fall for badly it in the bad thing with today's society is it's they've made it almost impossible not to pay some of your bills online and and not to have to order some things online and I have that held out against that for years and finally had to break down and you know and get that one special credit card that you keep a two hundred dollar limit on it strictly to order stuff online so that way when you use a number you don't get your entire account cleaned out if you use a debit card or something I mean the assault on our privacy is it is to a point where there is there's almost no way to defeat it you know and we're we're fighting a tragical government now that I said all along again even ten years ago after my first book came out people civil what's the ultimate goal with this why would they want to do this to people well the ultimate goal is to control the entire population you know as you can see from where we're at now you know we whether you hate Trumper love problem you're Democrat or Republican it doesn't matter but when you sing it the president get elected it's not a status quo politician and may actually turn the entire intelligence apparatus of the American government out against that president to try to figure out a way to get in and peach which also I think is one of the reasons that they have the attack on the Cuban embassy they're trying to blame that on the Russians I don't think if the Russians the Russians know how many nails or work more built into that building right and they have and they have a low tech you know technology in there to to scan that they needed me to attack exactly you know what we're at a point where we need to take control of our government most certainly we need to be able to expose the fact of these weapons exist and they can be turned on people in a given.

"It's my understanding that everything that Bruce or did was approved known to senior department justice officials Corday close with the so I think this is something that you know will have to be looked at I don't know all the facts here but I think from the facts that are being reported advice to members of Congress may not in fact be the actual facts yeah there's somebody we really can't trust that last voice you are heard is former CIA director Brendan glad you're with us our two eight hundred nine four one Shawn toll free telephone number you know Brennan everything Bruce or did was approved by senior DOJ officials coordinated with the F. B. I. what we do know in August of twenty sixteen it was Bruce or that was warning everybody that yeah the dossier was not verified it was Clinton bought and paid for and still had an agenda that would those warnings one out again from Kathleen Cadillac to the FBI DOJ officials at the time prior to that we're listening to Peter struck Sansar how Bruce or provided documents to the FBI that included parts of the steel dot CA Doug Collins they were looking for dot com documents from now your and then we have things to judicial watch a trove of these new documents exposing how senior DOJ F. B. I. private contractors targeted Donald Trump then candidate trump then president elect trump of then president trump and now Nelly or herself remember she was doing the op research even on trump's family but all this these Russia connections that was coming directly to Bruce or from her judicial watch gives three hundred thirty three three nine thirty pages of documents showing or member you was at one point the fourth highest guy at the department of justice obviously demoted a couple of times discussing the information all obtained through his wife Nellie your who's being paid really by Clinton with funneled money through fusion GPS yet or emailing himself an excel spreadsheet seemingly from his wife which has the title who's who nineteen September twenty sixteen purports to show all these relationships and linkages between trump is family criminal figures many home a Russian no later we we discovered that the FBI put their own spread sheet together to bunk in over ninety percent of these lies and Bruce or providing the F. B. I. research that his wife Nellie is being paid for ultimately by Clinton in the DNC Andy McCarthy is with us he has a brand new book out is a columnist for National Review a fox news contributor in this new book which by the way it is entitled ball of collusion the plot to Reagan election and destroy your presidency it was just released he actually brings this up higher than anybody else has right into the oval office of Barack Obama a what he views as ace counter intelligence effort that Obama was involved in aware of design and take down president trump and help Hillary Clinton Andy McCarthy welcome back great to be with you thanks for having me what I just let you go into the whole premise here behind this because I have asked many times well what did Obama know about all this when the know it same a button on you know in the in the years we've now spent talking about this I feel sometimes that when I when I try to make this distinction between counter intelligence investigations and criminal investigations I pity people who have to listen to me drone on about this because it it can make your eyes glaze over but it really is an important difference in it and it really hits the point that you're raising criminal investigations are done for the purpose of building prosecutable cases for court because criminal prosecution is the vindication of the rule of law in court proceedings and we don't want politics to enter into it but counter intelligence investigations or different inclined because they're done exclusively for the president they're not done for the purposes of building prosecutable cases the only reason we have a counterintelligence mission which the F. B. I. handles domestically and the CIA and the NSA and other agencies handle on the far end the only reason we have counter intelligence is in order to supply the president with information so that he can carry out his constitutional obligations to protect the United States from potential foreign threats to our interests so if you're gonna do something by counter intelligence it's by nature being done for the president it's the kind of information that for example ends up in the president's daily briefing every day but here are in addition to the fact that it's counter intelligence and therefore it's being done for the president anyway we have a number of indications that president Obama did indeed know what was happening in real time as it was happening Dave said again and again that they were aware of what Russia was trying to do to interfere with the election in real time and I think you know one of the big things I try to highlight in the book is this January fifth twenty seventeen meeting in the oval office where the main topic of discussion on the day before there's going to brief president elect trump on Russia's interference in the election is what information should be withheld from the incoming trump team regarding Russia so it's clear that Obama you know what it's clear from the fact that he was in involved in this and it's clear from the way they structured it that he was involved in a you know now the president said earlier today he agrees with this contention in your book the how would it be possible that Obama doesn't know president that it's a very serious situation tweeting about this can never be allowed to happen again drain the swamp but in those ball occlusion now what is it mean if the whole counter intelligence invented Russia pokes narrative that Barack Obama was involved in the get go what does that mean for him what does it mean for Biden with all the talk about okay impeaching trumping getting trump to answer questions it sounds to me like they're an awful lot of questions Barack Obama now has to answer for well I think they were there yes I think that's right now I think he should have been and it had to answer them all along this is the kind of thing that could not have happened unless he was aware of it and green lighted it and show it just it just to turn it around what do you think the media and the Democrats would say if it turned out that the FBI currently was doing counterintelligence investigations and president trump was unaware of them they would make that into the biggest you know case that that trump was incompetent that you could imagine and that's exactly what they would say and they would say precisely because everybody knows that these intelligence operations are done so that the president can do his job so of course they're involved in them how much it's going to have consequences for Obama and Biden how much they're going to be pressed on this really depends on how how much of an impression what happened here made makes on the country I like you happen to think it's a big deal when the incumbent administration exploits the counter intelligence and law enforcement apparatus of the government in a political campaign against the opposition candidate to me that's a pretty big scandal it's all right for the country doesn't seem to see it the way we see it we we well I don't know the rest of the country but a where the rest of the country been fed by a mob mentality in the media only one part of the story and the main story in the narrative in the where we actually have real evidence real Russia collusion a really raked investigation a real abuse of power the real intelligence the powerful tools of intelligence turned on the American people you know that's all going to be proven real John Solomon's on for an hour yesterday and the and you know we have a slight disagreement we know we're gonna have the Horowitz report on call me which we've been talking about likely today tonight or soon and we know that we that there was a referral for potential prosecution in that case and they also showed a lack of candor yeah those documents that were classified in this house that FBI agents retrieved a month after his fire that's that would be one investigation then of course the vise investigation after multiple warnings we know there was premeditated fraud committed on a FISA court on four separate occasions those warrants were signed and everybody had been warned that the bulk of information using the application is unfair of unverifiable the we now know ninety plus percent of it to be outright lies call me sign three of them but more importantly they were worn by Bruce store and Kathleen calve like that still had an agenda Hillary paid for it that was not brought to the attention of these judges in any fashion that it should have been brought to their attention is that a crime premeditated fraud to obtain a warrant to spine an opposition party candidate than a transition team that a president John I think it's a profound I we we've done this before I know but we I think it's a profound abuse of power to my mind an abuse of power in many ways is a lot more important than whether it happens to violate a provision of title eighteen I think the fraud cases the very hard to make beyond a reasonable doubt when you're dealing with people who have a lot of ability under the law to exercise discretion whether they've abuse their discretion is a lot easier to prove and to me it's a lot more consequential but you know I think whether it's a crime or it's not a crime it's still an abuse of power and people have to be held to account for it yeah okay so do you see crimes do you see what I see that there was a rigged investigation in the Hillary case to protect her when the evidence was overwhelming and incontrovertible on the espionage act and the destruction of evidence subpoenaed emails and the bleach but not hammers do you see that there was a premeditated fraud on the FISA court and there were two separate well John thinks is going to be another report that would deal with the leaking of classified information by Horowitz when I see something deeper merging and that would be maybe a a bar Dora Moore dorm report or something there of that will have exposure of those people that outsourced intelligence gathering to spy on American citizens using our western allies to do it all in an attempt to circumvent American laws which I think would be the biggest abuse of power part of the sum of all yeah look at that stuff gets proved I agree with you and the reason I please say give don't you think we talk about this is because I think it's pretty important and I do think it's a pretty spectacular piece of power you'd have to parse out join the the different things you said it the one that really grabs your attention I think is the fraud on the FISA court because if they made knowing misrepresentations to the FISA court than people what a hang over that and that is a crime that you know that lying to a court as a crime things inside of my life to accord to the court yes if I committed a fraud on the court when I go to jail in the McCarthy I was prosecuting you we would then and if I showed a lack of candor I would be treated like Papadopoulos man afford and cold but not the way call me and Clinton every entry well you know that at B. lactic candor was the reason they bounced McKay badly F. B. I. right and then I don't think that's a closed chapter by the way I think you know they're gonna wait till they finish all of these investigations and then they're going to decide what is the proof of false statements that they have and at that point I think they'll make an evaluation about whether proceed criminally or not I'd stay right there great book just out today we are featuring it on Hannity dot com it's on Amazon dot com it's.

"Hundred nine four one Sean toll-free. Telephone number. We have an amazing breaking news, Hannity tonight. We're putting it together. Now as we speak. It's all beginning to cascade down and in the big issues are about the hit. It's getting closer than ever. And there's no stopping it at this point. Let's go to David is in Tampa, Florida. WFL eight David. Hi, how are you? Glad you called, sir. Thanks to speak with you. And I was wondering if I could get your opinion on something. So the president has been using the term hoax in reference to, you know, what's been done to him for the duration of his presidency, literally and hoax, almost connotes kind of good natured punch in the arm, you know, laugh time to deal or Loch, Ness, monster or whatever. However, I think what he's been done. And, and I watched this kind of thing in other countries, see collusion at the decision maker level department Justice. FBI DNC. See free market contracting all working together before during an after the presidency to execute where I would absolutely observe in assessing the salt, coup. Why is that language being avoided by the president? You know, MO the president is pretty much set it. I mean, if you really look closely we brought this up yesterday, nobody really cared that Bernie Sanders cheated out of the nomination that the primary in two thousand sixteen was rigged on the Democratic Party side between super delegates that they had a cetera. Then they tried to you had a group of deep state, upper echelon actors that absolutely rigged, a criminal investigation, that any other American probably would have been put in jail for, including obstruction, which is Hillary, the espionage act. And of course deletions bleach bit and hammers then it went a step further as they tried to. Influence the twenty sixteen election. And frankly, cheat the way they tried was to use this phony Russian, disinformation dossier, bought and paid for by Hillary and not only did they disseminate these false lies to the press. But then they use that information to apply for and by doing so they, they didn't tell the FIS accord, judges. It was premeditated fraud about Hillary paying for it, or Christopher Steele, hatred of Trump or the fact that none of it was verified and James Komai put his signature on it, and that gave them a backdoor into all things, Trump campaign, and then later Trump transition later Trump presidency. So it all happened. It's all real all the evidence is coming out. Was it an attempted coup? Absolutely. The, the number of people were talking about here in the upper echelon is very small. And that's one of the main reasons I go out of my way. To point out, this is not rank and file FBI or not rank and file intelligence because those people are aghast at the things that they have learned that their bosses did. And, you know, the FBI is still the premier law enforcement agency in the world. The our intelligence community is the premier intelligence community in the world when they use it to put their lives on the line to protect us in a very dangerous, evil world. It's a good thing if they turn the tools of intelligence, which are ever, so powerful on the American people all freedoms, then law. So it's an awesome responsibility that we put in their hands and not holding them accountable to me is just unacceptable because it's just going to happen again. Well, and Sean, that's great point. And without making a historical example, what's to keep it from happening again? Well, I mean, you know, we have to put in place. Protections that can't happen again. I mean at some point, I've got to imagine now, we do know that with the declassification of the president were going to at some point see the FIS applications. And my sources have told me repeatedly that at the top of the obligation it says verified. Now James Komi sign the first one in October two thousand sixteen. We now know it's an unverified -able document as the author of the dossier. Christopher Steele has said that he cannot authenticate his own doc-, that is no idea of any of it's true. So that means that there's no way, the Komi knows of any of it's true, but he's still verified before FIS accord, judge that in fact, it was true. Otherwise, in the words of the deputy FBI director at the time. They wouldn't have had a FIS a warrant, but for McCabe now but for the dossier and then it goes further. Because in January twenty seventeen full three months after Komi goes to Trump Tower to inform then president elect Trump that the dossier is in existence. It's the latest but unverified. Well, that means the Komi light, either to the president-elect, or lied to the FIS court, and I would hedge my best pet that he lied in both cases and just did what was convenient for him politically. And the fact that even the F B I upper-echelon thought that he was trying to blackmail. President Trump is a pretty scary thought why they never brought Donald Trump into the process at any point said, hey, there might be people in your campaign that we don't trust what they're doing is inexplicable to me. But it's also inexplicable, that the FBI deputy director McCabe told general Flynn that went up ya. We're going to talk to him. He didn't need a lawyer and Komi bragged, how he sent the agents into the Trump White House, something he'd never do in the Obama or the Bush administration's to take advantage of the chaos to set up general Flynn, who they had illegally amassed leak raw intelligence on, I mean, they knew every answer, so anything that was imperfectly from what they had heard themselves but didn't tell them about it was a setup in a perjury trap, and frankly, violation of his constitutional rights by telling them he didn't need an attorney. Why do we have Miranda in this country? So it runs, very, very deep these people thought they knew better. They believed that Trump voters was smelly, WalMart people. They believe that Trump was loathsome. They believe that Hillary should win one hundred million zero and they recognize what they were. They were doing was to try to save the Hannity and then help elect Hillary. Clinton. And the only reason we know all of this happened is because she didn't win. And then the insurance policy, of course, follow that. And, and we know what that's all about at this point. I appreciate again, you know, this is about the time you've had to lay this out and keeping us fell. But where I sit I'm going to be his. I'll tell you why it's complicated. This is not easy to understand, and it's very hard for good people to grasp as Joe digenova would say, these are these are crooked cops, but the crooked cops are not the ninety nine percent. It's just these top people, and they abuse their power, and they literally will willing to sacrifice the freedoms of Americans and literally override what the American people wanted in the process, that's a scary thought. Right. And between the states in the electoral college is you're going on now. And administrative State, John rea-? We have everything we need to keep this all in check. It's just not being enforced. And unless these leaders that were truly coordinated colluded throw. In other words, you wanna, you know, that, that basically come down to complicit. If they don't suffer real jail time like long term. But we would do to folks who commit treason than, I don't see how this gets any better after this. Oh, I don't see how either, but the good news is even in spite of them all the information is coming out. But with the president's declassification is much bigger than anybody thinks the fact that the inspector general is on the precipice of releasing his report on abuse. There really is no other conclusion except that this was premeditated fraud on the FIS courts and, you know, to get a warrant to spy on an opposition party candidate in an election year as severe as it gets. And, you know, I'm hopeful and I pray, and if we have equal Justice and equal application of our laws these people pay a very heavy price if not, then we're in trouble that this could continue when they'll abuse power in the future. But if it happens again, I don't, I don't know if we survive as a country, it's that serious to me. Anyway, thanks for the call preciado. It Heison is in Oklahoma Tyson. Hi how. Are you and welcome to the Sean Hannity show? Sean Hannity show. How are you? Hi, sean. What's going on? Thanks for taking my call here in fly over country. Yes, sir. I've been getting frustrated about or lose debt negative coverage in days about Trump's presidency and with being passed in New York last month about the tax returns knows wondering if we could start going after maybe Chuck Schumer's or Jerry, Nadler's tax returns as well since their elected officials from there. Try and see what skeletons in their closet that they're hiding look. I'm sure there is the only difference between us and them is we don't believe in weaponising the IRS to go after political opponents. You know, the IRS has their system. It's supposed to be random, but I can tell you from firsthand experience. It's not you know, I know for a fact that every single solitary year. My taxes are, are pulled and looked at every year. And with that said, I just tell my accounts just pay if it's questionable deduction, I said, don't use it, and basically, it's a simple formula. If you look at the percentage of money you take in, and the percentage of pay your either paying your taxes, or you're not, and I pay my taxes, but to weaponize, the IRS is a very, very dangerous thing to do. And you know, I think everybody should pay, you know. It's like I don't know why Manafort didn't pay. I don't know why Michael Kohn didn't pay, they should have if they couldn't pay you need to tell them, you can't pay and make a deal with them. So you can pay over time. If you hide from them, you're gonna eventually get in trouble. It's a simple rule pay your taxes. Don't lie on loan applications and those guys wouldn't be in trouble. Nate is in Atlanta, news, talk WSB. What's up Nate? How are you? Glad you call. I'm good. John. How are you? I'm good, sir. So my question is I was wondering what was the legal purpose of the molar investigation August? When you lie on the Russians invaded ended. Trump at any. Well, they were looking into the main mandate, which by the way became very broad because they had a line in there that said or any other area that comes up in the course of the investigation, which means it's open ended, but the main purpose was to see whether or not the Trump campaign, conspired colluded with Russia, to impact the twenty sixteen race Muller like the nine month. FBI investigation in the house Intel investigation, and the bipartisan Senate investigation concluded there was no such collusion conspiracy that ever took place. He couldn't be more clear. And then the question became Donald Trump, who is annoyed that he had to deal with two two years of this crap..
"department justice" Discussed on KCRW
"You're listening to KCRW. This is morning edition. California's state lawmakers are wrestling with some big issues this year, homelessness shortage of affordable housing, healthcare, but the state legislatures also taking on some other thorny issues, including a Bill that would reign in local sheriff's commentator. Joe Matthews was in Sacramento this week and heard some of the discussion surrounding this Bill in this installment of so close, connecting California. He explains what exactly the measure would do. And why supporters say it's needed. It would provide some clarity that counties really can overseas sheriff's offices and meaningful way right now. The position of shares in California has been basically the answer only to voters into God. You know, it's a very powerful position and furious across the state in the accounting have often resisted oversight by county boards overseers. Or or even civilian oversight bodies that have been created. They said they don't have to abide by them. They want the other inspector channels you've seen criminals, basically frozen out by the sheriff in Akron, Ohio, and San Joaquin county. You got even point here essentially defied the professional coroner to have hands off the bodies of corpses. That were evidence in cases involving good God. Enforcement. Why? Well, it's unclear. But the coroner who that cases a famous corner named Bennett, Omar who best known for being played by Will Smith in a movie because he was a corner who, you know, exposed concussions a problem among pro football players. But in San Joaquin county, where he was a corner he ended up resigning over this and some other abuses of the sheriff of basically maintain their long when themselves this is an attempt to make clear that they are not and that they have to answer to civilian oversight by their county governments some of this is based on a court ruling that was handed down about twenty years ago. So the thought would be that counties already have this authority. Why do they need a law? Well, because they need because the sheriff's have have divide and gone away with shears are very powerful people in counties, they've been willing to go after politicians who have sought to control them. They're often very popular. They come from the ranks often connected to the powerful on some unions, very powerful for host of reasons and local government. The number of this Bill really is about trying to buck up that court president in the clear legal, you know, stuff in the says this year's are the answer the state, the state State Department Justice, but making sure that any billion oversight or inspector general county, my point will have subpoena power over the shares what we will have to be able to get information and documents from this year department. That's really what this all boils down to. And the sheriffs are posing it saying they're accountable only about now here in Alicante. We've. Got a sheriff who has taken several controversial steps in just the last few months since he was elected last fall sheriff Ueva, he's rehired. At least half a dozen deputies who'd been fired by previous sheriffs from his conduct has moved to rollback various kinds of reforms. Some people might say, okay. We've got that oversight. Is it really working? Knows at it. He summed his nose the county supervisors in this. He's making news in in LA, but that kind of your nose at the civilian oversight. And the county supervisors is not unusual. It's actually it's the it's par for the course in California. You're seeing it most recently in sheriff's dividing state laws around sanctuary for undocumented immigrants, and even going to the to the White House for more than one here for my person say that the only more powerful elected official in this country than county sheriff is the United States. And so we seen that sort of defiance, and you know, at some level with this legislation complaining about it. But they have with their actions and words, including without in Los Angeles County been asking for it. You are on the ground in Sacramento earlier this week sort of hearing some discussion of this issue, which ways the wind blowing. Are you seeing political will? To get something along this lines pass. Or is the pushback from law enforcement going to perhaps stop that from happening. The county getting this oversight given the larger conversation state about accountability for police. So I suspect this will likely happen. And then and then I suspect you'll see Shiro seek to defy it or challenge in the courts that would fit the pattern in California where it's very hard to make sheriff do anything or she doesn't want to do. Matthews is a syndicated columnists was public square. He'll be back next week. You're listening to KCRW..
"department justice" Discussed on 600 WREC
"Attorney general William bar is set to testify this morning on Capitol Hill in his first appearance before lawmakers since his summary of Robert Muller's Russia investigation, it's supposed to be about routine budget matters. But the special counsel's report is expected to feature prominently. Meanwhile, the escalating political battle over the report centers on reductions, Mr. bars redacting, at least four categories of information before issuing it to congress and the public Devlin Barrett who covers the Justice department and the FBI at the Washington Post says the fight over blacked out boxes is likely to lead to months of battles between congress and the Justice department devil, and what can we expect bar has publicly pledged to be as transparent as possible. Now, transparency is often in the eye of the beholder. The other issue is grand jury material can be interpreted different ways. I think prosecutors genuinely interpret the category, very broadly. But I think when there's this much attention on such a high profile case. Especially a case in which congress also has a vested interest in knowing what happened in the course of the investigation. I think there's some pretty good arguments to define grandeur immaterial material narrowly. But you know, we really don't know what's inside bars head as far as those specifics go, and obviously we don't know what's in the report. So we don't know what he has to work with. We've heard grumblings that some of the investigators on Mr. Muller's team or not happy with the way, Mr. bar has portrayed things through that summary will that have an impact here it could. I think there's a lot of angst and uncertainty as to as to what bars doing, and I think that sort of adds to the pressure on bar himself. I think he knows that his time in office may be defined by by this document, and how he handles his document. So I think there's a lot of pressure on him to be as forthcoming as possible. But you know, he also has some pretty strong views about executive power and about what congress should be able to grab. So it'll be. Interesting to see how those things play out in the final version of the document speaking with Devlin Barrett national security reporter at the Washington Post. He covers the Justice department Justice department in the FBI, he's got a piece entitled scrutiny and suspicion as mother report undergoes reductions what about the recent court decision. I think it was on Friday with regards to grand jury stuff is that a help or hurt to Mr. bars approach here. You know, it's interesting. They the Justice department immediately put out a statement saying that they were glad that the court recognizes the importance of grand jury secrecy. And you know, the case is unrelated and doesn't really speak directly to the issues in the report. So I wouldn't assume that that decision impacts anything to directly, but it definitely helps within within the Justice department. There are people who are arguing that essentially pe- we the people in charge to be more tightly controlled with the information that we should. That they should not just pump everything out and let the public sort through all the evidence at that would be a dangerous precedent to set. And for those folks inside the department, I think they they will take some more ammunition from that decision because it agrees with that general principle Beckham, there's been a lack of leaks for lack of better terminology here. I mean, something like this Shirley with so much at stake. Politically, somebody has seen something in would've called somebody like yourself with a little nugget of information. So I think there's two things one parts of the investigation. You can see by the folks they have interacted with and to you know, when when the special counsel's office was created the base. They basically stood up their own little mini US attorney's office and by separating themselves from the regular work of the Justice department that is conducive to preventing leaks. Generally the other factor here, though is just Bob Muller's personality himself. He's he's not a person who who has any patience or tolerance for that kind of stuff. And I think he has made that abundantly clear to the relatively small number of people who worked with him on this. So all those people who are impaneled on grand juries right in nothing from those folks either. Right. I mean, they haven't they haven't said word, I mean, grand juries tend not to to speak. I mean, it's very rare. When you see a grandeur as opposed to regular speak about anything because you know, the rules are explained very very clearly to them and most people follow those rules when it's Devlin Devlin Barrett. National security reporter at the Washington Post. It is fourteen minutes now after the hour.

"Would aid Vladimir Putin next. Trump supports populist pro Russian leaders in Europe, such as Viktor Orban's of Hungary and marine Le Pen in France. Just as the Russians do. Next Trump has praised Putin a strong leader while trashing just about everyone else. Next. Trump was utterly supine and his meetings with Putin. Meaning he laid down principally in Hamburg and Helsinki even more suspicious, and this is to me. An extreme problem. This should never take place. Even more suspicious. According to a post article on Saturday, Trump has gone to extrordinary lengths to conceal the details of his conversations with Putin. Including. On at least one occasion, taking possession of notes of his own interpreter. And instructing linguists not to discuss what transpired with other administration officials. What could it be could? He be hiding. Did he make some sort of deal in there? Or did he discuss some ongoing skulduggery? Why else would you? Take the notes and instructed linguists not to discuss what had transpired. Several officials said they were never able to get reli- reliable readout of the president's to are meeting in Helsinki. Chump defends the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and repeats other pro Russian talking points, next Trump is pulling US troops out of Syria handing that country to Russia. And its allies, Iran. Trump has effectively done nothing in response to the Russian attack on Ukrainian ships in international waters there by encouraging greater Russian aggression. Next Trump is sowing chaos in the government most recently with a record-breaking partial government, shutdown and acting appointees in key posts. That hasn't been confirmed. Such as Justice. The defense department Justice department at the furthering a Russian objective undermining its chief adversary. It'd be us he's helping the Russians undermine us. Eighteen reasons listed there that Trump could be a Russian asset. Well, maybe there's some exculpatory evidence. Let's find out if there's some reasons excuses for this. Of course, the pages left blank in the and the article, meaning no there are none. I can't think of anything that would exonerate Trump aside from the difficulty of grasping. What once would have seen unimaginable? That a president of the United States can actually have been compromised by a foreign hostile power. In his own defense. Trump claims India's and tougher on Russia than any other president. But literally in the next sentence. He says getting along with Russia is a good thing. Not a bad thing. When the United States is actually taking steps to get tough with Russia in the past two years is usually been the work of congress. 2017 Russia sanctions or Trump aids expelling sixty Russian diplomats. The post reports that Trump was furious on his administration was reported was portrayed as being tough on Russia. What is going on? Why are those meetings with Putin secret that meeting with Putin secret? I could go on and on. And you can go ahead and support the president because he does but you want. I would suggest though that there will be others. They would do what you want when do the stuff. To me, the most important part of the election coming up as the primary. There are other people that will do what you want. And Republicans when it comes to the Republican primary. Why don't you give us a better choice? Someone they could achieve the goals.
