Trump Fund-Raiser Elliott Broidy Charged in Lobbying Case

"We're also watching tonight the strange and we expect to be developing story of this Guy who has now been hit with federal felony charges. His name is Elliott Brady. He had a senior role in the trump inaugural committee. He was a major donor to the trump campaign not long after trump's inauguration the Republican party in this since deleted press release. Announced its, new national finance team. Under. The leadership of Steve. Wynn who since had to give up his casino empire a huge sexual harassment scandal the party brought on they announced in that press release they brought on as deputy finance. Chairman. Real, Nice. Group of guys Michael, Cohen the president's former personal lawyer who would soon go onto multiple felony convictions and a substantial jail term before becoming one of the president's most vociferous. Himself they also in that same press release announced Elliott Brady. As a national deputy chairman of the Republican Party, he is also a today now charged with multiple felonies committed also the other guy they announced that Prescott and that press release that day was Lewis to joy. The Guy who president trump put in charge of messing up the post office. COVID made us all change to vote by mail for this election Steve WYNN Elliott, Brady Michael Cohen and Louis de joy all in the same press release. All announced as having these major new roles in the national. Republican. Party all on the same day couldn't happen to a nicer bunch. I will just reiterate that the National Republican Party has since deleted that press release from their website but it's a real thing. Elliott Brady has now as I mentioned been charged with multiple felonies charged basically with taking money illegally from foreign sources to get the Justice Department to drop certain prosecutions. But Elliott Brady is tied up a whole bunch of stuff all the scandals involving the trump inaugural. He was a senior figure in the trump inaugural brady. You may also remember was embroiled in a hush money payment scheme that was almost literally a carbon copy of the one president trump got embroiled in with porn-star Stormy Daniels I. Mean. Literally, it was a copied thing. It does seem like the lawyers involved in both the trump hush money payoff and the. Payoff the lawyers may have used the exact same documents and the exact same fake names for both Brady and trump's hush money deals. Elliott was also the key link to the trump campaign and the trump administration for convicted pedophile. George Nader who for some reason had tons of access to the highest levels of the trump campaign, the trump transition, and even the trump administration. George Nader is now in jail probably forever. On child pornography and child sex trafficking charges his business arrangements with the. With. Liberty with the sky from the RNC and the trump inaugural committee that business relationships between. George Nader and Elliott. Brady remain murky but with brody now, himself facing federal felony charges. Maybe. More, will come out about that too. All in the lead up to the president's reelection effort Elliott, Brady is expected to plead guilty at least. That's what these court filings look like today. We shall see.

"Thank you. Have a great evening tonight is to it's a big night of breaking news tonight, President Trump's private business his presidential campaign. His transition team Hayes White House and now his inaugural committee all to varying degrees under criminal investigation. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that federal prosecutors are investigating the Trump inaugural committee and investigation that partly arises out of material seized by the FBI in its raids of Michael Cohen's home office and hotel room quote, Federal Bureau of investigation agents obtained a recorded conversation between Mr. Cohen and Stephanie Winston woke off of former advisor to Malania Trump who worked on the inaugural events in the recording. Ms wall, cough expressed concern about how the inaugural committee was spending money. According to a person familiar with the. Cohen administration investigation. Now, people familiar with the matter tell the Wall Street Journal that the criminal probe is looking into whether the committee misspent some of the one hundred seven million dollars it raised and quote, whether some of the committee's top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration policy concessions or to influence official administration positions. The journal also reports investigators have spoken to this man. Rick gates about inaugural the inaugural committee spending gates previously served as the deputy Trump campaign manager and deputy chairman of Trump's inaugural committee. He's currently cooperating with federal prosecutors as part of his plea deal. The report of an investigation into Trump's inaugural committee comes as NBC news confirms Donald Trump was the third person in the room in August of two thousand fifteen who was talking about hush money payments to women. With Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher, David pecker, the guy on the right? Remember Trump keeps saying he had no knowledge of this wasn't illegal didn't even happen. Federal prosecutors in New York said in a press release yesterday that American media that's the parent of the National Enquirer admitted to making one hundred and fifty thousand dollar payment quote in concert with the campaign, and that there was a meeting between Cohen pecker, and quote, at least one other member of the campaign, the news tonight that other person the third person in the room, Donald J Trump himself. These new reports dropped just hours after the president's increasingly desperate attempts to distance himself from Michael Cohen and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn attempts that are often contradictory and obviously false take Cohen this morning. Trump said Michael Cohen should have known better than to break campaign finance laws. Because Cohen is a lawyer. But hours later Trump tried to claim the Cohen was actually just a PR flack. First of all that was his title, a very low level work. Why did you public relations and he did law, but he did see him on television? And he was okay and television in a matter of hours Trump picked his own argument apart, then the president falsely claimed that Michael Flynn did not lie to the FBI..

"You have a situation of the I don't know this is that that in the poorest parts of the country. The ATM not run by the banks run by businesses. Then charge people set out every time you take money out. Whereas in the areas where people are better off the the banks run the ams and that completely free to use. So it's almost like a penalty on poor people. Is there something that the banks were reluctant to follow the government in this roll out pushing? What the banks have done in the last three years is that every time you you're if you're a client from a not the same Bank. We stadiums is run by the charge. You a certain amount of money. It's not massive. But there is a certain penalty now involved, especially though, this isn't the areas in the known areas, which generally the government has a sane idioms run for free. And again, this is to give access to people who have never used banks. Forget it. So any kind of charges if if they come in people will be put off so I don't think that is an option the non-urban areas, but again in cities, if you're say CitiBank customer, and you go to stand the chartered eighty me will be us to pay a bit of money in this goes about magically from your Bank accounts. But it's something that the banks will have to sort out with the government, especially the Indian banks, which work on the principle that certain amount of their profits. Do go off or written off in. For development issues as they're called. India's central Bank which is coming in for criticism. But the government actually is coming in for criticism because of the way that trying to direct and course, the Bank now this is, of course, something which we've seen in Turkey. We have seen this in the US that central banks come under a lot of pressure from the government, especially when the governments are very aggressively pursuing pro growth issues and during election times, this has happened with Trump this has happened with Don in Turkey, the lira has crashed dramatically after that. So again, the the government have an election coming up in two thousand nineteen they are trying to get the central Bank to give up a bit of the surplus that central banks dog, it's completely different. They want to keep a hold on inflation. They want to get rid of the huge amount of bad debts that they're that. They're out they want to protect the rupee from the emerging market jitters, which happen. So this. They do not want to play into the government's. And but the government is now trying to invoke something called article seven which was established in nineteen thirty four and has never been used which allows the government to direct the central Bank on policy matters that this is dangerous. The deputy chairman of there is a banker said that anytime you try and attack the central Bank or jeopardize its autonomy the markets punish you very heavily. So there a tussle at the moment. And if the government winces tussle, it does does not speak very well of how the country's economy will be managed interesting that the Indian central Bank has Tony guaranteed has been pretend to for so long.

"I don't know. I can't tell you there's a lot more evidence with this accusation and there was with Brett cabin. There's a lot more ongoing and things like you don't. You're not lying to your doctor and your doctors not writing ham treating for injuries. And so again, he deserves the presumption of innocence. But what's been interesting to me is the reaction from Democrats here where they're saying, well, we know exactly. I mean, we know Br Kavanagh's guilty. How can you possibly side with him? You're just accusing these horrible accusations, and you don't care about women. But by the way, we're going to completely ignore Keith Ellison who's currently running with the woman who is has evidence who was we all know had relationship. She's got, she's got notes from the doctors. We're going to completely ignore that. One with really interesting here is it doesn't seem like the people of Minnesota or ignoring it. This is the September poll were Ellison led by five points, which is not really. He should have been leading probably by a lot more than that in Minnesota. You could argue, however, the update to this poll this is completely flipped. Now now Ellison trails by seven since he's acusations have come out and you know, I think people look at them. They say, there is some credibility. See here. He was already not a great candidate. He was already way more left than I think the people of Minnesota are, and that's not a conservative state, and you know, now they're seeing these accusations are out there the way he's he's handled it. The Democrats have reacted to it and I think you know Minnesota stepping back on this thing, I don't think we want to go down this road. Yeah. I mean, I think there's two issues. One is the campaign he's running in the way people Minnesota revealing, which I think you're absolutely right. But the second one and I think is more important is the first point which is unbelievable the poxy the way the left views his case and his situation, the allegations against him. I agree with you wholeheartedly, and that's to me the fascinating difference in dynamic that exists right now, the right most of the table say he deserves the presumption of innocence the left would say and left in this case because it's democrat kind of just they don't necessarily say, you say nothing. Whereas if it's the Republican, they go, you know, let's crucify crucify. You know what's interesting too is to me, this one is more important. Even Ken. China, they made a big deal about cavenaugh. He's going to be on the supreme court. He sees going to be, but he's not going to be making, you know, rulings on things. Those are big scope ideas, not you're guilty, you're innocent, they still want if nine and still one of nine, he's the attorney general. So he's going to be directing the police force. He's going to be directing the law in in Minnesota that that should scare the hell out of you. If this guy is guilty, you don't wanna put a guy like that into a position where you're the chief law enforcement officer. That's not that's. That's not why is well, let's remember beyond running being occuren- cornerstone running for attorney general, Minnesota. He is still to this day, the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party wrecked that which I think it's lost in the discussion because rightly so we talk about the current office he wants and the one he hopes to. An aspires to have, but this is their party. This is the number two person in their elected party leadership. Did they say this is an old by the way, forget all of this. We're gonna talk about this importance of me to of women's rights of accusers all of this stuff. And yet no one seems to care from the media standpoint from the democratic Sam. Whereas the calls for him to resign where all the folks in Hollywood are outraged that stood around those cavenaugh hearing stock saying, you need to resign. Where's the outrage? Not there. Glenn, we have a, there's a gen problem. I hear. No, this is bad. It's bad. Do we have the videotape? Okay. I want you to watch this. Please. Please. This has happened to me and it could happen in your house watch then don't forget that they all other creations besides men are men who are going to look at you the at the.

"So one of the things I wanted to talk about is Keith Ellison who is a democratic candidate for attorney, general of Minnesota. He was actually nominee. He won last week in the primary, but right before the election Ellison was accused of abuse by an ex girlfriend who's an organizer for the Sierra Club. And she said that when they were together, actually, the allegation was first made public by her son who wrote about it on Facebook, and she confirmed to the New York Times that she suffered, quote, narcissist abuse during a long relationship with Allison, including verbal abuse and being dragged off bed, but he won his his. Primary anyway was Minnesota has a lot of early voting. We can't be sure you know why he won. But I also think that being from the twin cities area, but across the border in Wisconsin. I know a lot of people who live in Minnesota and vote in Minnesota. And I get the impression that a lot of Minnesota voters were not super happy with how the whole Al Franken thing went down. I think people have maybe drawn a line that's different than just any report of any sort of abusive behavior means that I don't go for somebody, but I mean, that's just that's pulling that totally out of my ass. But now nobody's won his primer for AG. Republicans are running ads against people who support Ellison as I'm going to read the description of it. The ad titled ashamed has been tailored to target several Democrats running for the house of representatives and chastises them for not calling on Mr. Ellison who is also the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee committee to drop out of the race. And so it'll be like candidate is standing by Keith Ellison backing Ellison instead of believing his victim candidate. Should be ashamed grace. What are your thoughts on the Ellison allegations? I, you know, it's disappointing to hear. It's always disappointing. It's always is appointing when when leaders potential leaders of our country, have these allegations put against them? I, I want to draw attention to couple of things. I my issue with us talking about the kind of ramifications of this on an electoral basis is that we're, I think, taking away from the problem of harassment and assault, which is a human problem, and it's not a partisan issue. And so that's what what's so striking and so problematic to me about these ads that are politicizing and capitalizing on abusive women for their own political gain. Because at the core of it, what I think we're doing is forgetting about the fact that there are women who are victims here, but I strongly believe that we have no choice, but to believe women when they when they, you know, come out with with issues of allegations like this, and I think it's it's caused for us. Remember that as a human problem, this isn't just happening in the United States. This is a world. Wide problem. And I say that because I think we can get into dangerous territory talking about whether you know Republicans are worse Democrats at worse, which by the way, like I, I don't know. I mean, I think I think Democrats have actually force people to resign over this. Donald Trump is president, Blake, ferret, hold just this past week, former congressman from Texas rice still refuses to pay the eighty four thousand dollars in taxpayer money..

Because he worked for Donald Trump that was his crime. He worked for Donald Trump and so they'd dug up all stirred on them and they're, they're prosecuting him. Now he's probably just waiting for presidential Borden. He probably should get it because this has been an egregious miscarriage of Justice every step of the way. And I say that it knowing that Pullman of probably committed crimes then I'm so I know, I know we're running like, do you want me to do? I got to cover how the deputy chairman of the DNC might have beaten ex-girlfriends. Nobody's covering this whatsoever. In the media, the deputy chairman of the Democrat National Committee may have battered women. There are allegations about this and nobody's covering here. Here is the latest. Karen Mon hand, the the woman who's accusing him has now released. Some texts here are some texts from from couple years ago when this happened from Karen. Oh, this is from Keith Ellison, Karen. When can I come to drop your stuff off? What should I expect from Austin? Her son, he seems pretty upset. We talked on the show yesterday, but why he's upset. He's alleging that Keith Ellison beat his mother. Then Ellison says, quote, in a text to this ex-girlfriend, I'm sorry, Austin is feeling this way, but I don't know what to do about it. It's not appropriate for me to discuss our relationship with him. He's just angry and yet I can't won't offer him any answers. Later on Monahan says, a lot has come to light this past year and a half, and the boys have seen some things heard some things I've tried to explain. It's been hard on them and shocking. It's taken a lot for me and others to convince them to allow me to handle things in my own way in my own time. A lot has happened now from that. Can we conclude that Keith Ellison beat this woman? No, no. We can't conclude that they say that there's a video but that this hasn't been released. Nobody's seen it yet. Can we conclude that he's beaten this woman? No. Should we be asking some questions about it? Yeah, of course. The main look in election years, a lot of stuff comes up even from years past, so I'm always skeptical of these accusations..

"I i think it is that dire for these two defendants this is incredibly serious conduct i think bob muller's first and foremost objective is to try to punish this conduct and bring these two individuals to justice because their conduct really was way outside the bounds of american law but i do think brian a ultimate goal here is to figure out what leverage russia had over the chairman the deputy chairman and others in the trump campaign during the 2016 election so stephanie through an investigators are is what stands out at you as you read this indictment well i think it's a very fulsome indictment i mean they're very specific facts and very well documented intentions on the part of both manafort and gates in falsifying financial records line to lenders misleading iris about the tax records the thing that stands out most to me is that just how prolific they were in their efforts how unrelenting they were when faced with pushback by lenders they just came up with more creative ways to falsify information i think jeremies right the key is what impact will this have to the overarching russian investigation does bob muller anticipate that mr gates or mr manafort knows more and can provide more information that would link others into the campaign and possibly with the russian government hey peter our executive producer remembered the fall we piece of in your paper april of 2017 because she remembers pieces of writing like this quote he began this is how how manafort sold himself to trump he began by telling the candidate he lived on an upper floor of trump tower this was no trivial point it signalled his wealth and a willingness to work 15hour days and a building that housed both his lavish apartment at mr trump's barebones campaign it also meant mr manafort had already put his money in the form of an apartment purchase into mr trump's brand which meant a lot to the candidate transactional developer and politician aide said plus he had a powerful closers move he would work for free and i think you have said in the past peter that one trump can see you more as a here he's more likely to have a different relationship with you as an employee no certainly that's exactly right he's spoken in the past of other people in terms of their wealth wealth of impresses him it means that this person success.
