"When you hear a cases going on bug, you figure it's probably going to reverse the panel. Whilst with all the judges on the court get involved, Yeah, alright. David Katz, former assistant U. S attorney in L. A. And talking to us about this Ah U S Court of appeals here in District Columbia, seven to ruling that says that the House can subpoena Correct me. If I'm wrong on this. The house can't subpoena Don began. Uh, White House counsel Don began. So what does this mean? Now? They try to subpoena him. The impeachment hearings are over with what for? What reason would they want to subpoena done began, and is he likely to testify? Welcome again had some factory any testimony that he gave to Mueller. Ah, lot of people thought the Mueller report was awfully dry, and commentators who read it can attest to the fact that a lot of it was dry. But some of it was very lively and began with the lively part lively, get lively. Again. It's a phone call at home from Trump. He said. This under oath tomorrow, and Trump wants McGann fire. Mueller For supposed conflict of interest. Again says I don't see that he had a conflict of interest. I don't see that I'm again as White House counsel, Mr. Trump had any basis to go fire Mueller, I'm not going to do it. He comes in the next day, assuming that he's going to be fired, But McGann is not fired. Once hey, didn't get bullied on that topic of firing Mueller by Trump Trump apparently changed voice a little bit, so he then said Teo McGee and pay that never happened. Write a memo because people are running around talking about I called you at home and told you to fire Mueller, which was true. I want you to write a memo that said that did not happen that would be creating a false record. That's a classic obstruction of justice in criminal law. I was going to be one of the huge spaces to impeach Trump over obstruction of justice that incident I just described with him again and they had very compelling testimony on it. As that things ended up happening, Trump was able to delay it. Ah, stretch it out. Eventually they had that Ukraine a quid pro quo where he was trying to get a personal political favor. Not something for the country, and so they impeach him on that They kept it kind of lean and tight, and they never did. Impeach Trump. Based on this began thing and other instances of obstruction of justice laid out in the Moola report, but Congress always has the right to investigate misconduct. People breaking the law in a way that concerns Congress, even if the remedy is not going to be in peak. In fact, it could investigate this even if Trump lost the election because they're looking forward Christo legislation in the future try to prevent this thing happening again, Going forward with other president other White House counsel And other obstruction of justice. David Katz is former assistant U S attorney in L A. And joining us Now, as we talk about, Don began testifying, So are we likely to see him testify or we're going to Seymour legal roadblocks. Even if the House does go forward, Try toe. Subpoena. Trump will probably run out the clock given that we would like to. First of all this Congress ends in the beginning of January, Could they get began on the stand before November? Well, they've got the elections. They've got a lot of other things going on, and there are still a few quivers in the bow of Trump. Trump, of course, is managing this Litigation. This is not something began is really pursuing himself. He's not putting money out of his pocket to go pay for a lawyer. This is all being managed by the Trump Administration, which has told him Don't testify. You have all these lights now, the broad broad right that Trump was asserting that the one he lost on I think it's such a loser. He won't go to the Supreme Court. And that is that he could prevent McCann from testifying period. But he's gonna argue that there are more limited basis. Chris on which he can stop began from testifying start to make these garden variety things. There's no there's no subject matter that's properly in dispute. He's gonna argue what you just said. There's no impeachment. That's a foot anymore, so it's not part of any gates run enquiry. And then we do ultimately get him on the stand. Let's say before November, which would be great TV and great radio. They would probably ask him a bunch of questions. And then he would maybe assert executive privilege, or rather, Trump would exert executive privilege on his behalf. And say these things happened in the White House. They were White House advice that executive privilege would not succeed, either, but could he run out the clock on meaningful questioning? With the TV cameras and the radio microphones going, yes, we probably will not have any dramatic began testimony. But remember, he gave Mueller very dramatic testimony along the lies along the line. I just said, and there are a couple of other great chestnuts in the Mueller reports where they have chapter and verse. Come again. David. I'm short on time here, and I've got to kind of wrap it up. But I appreciate the time that you've given us a sort of explaining that breaking it down because this down began thing like you said it has the potential B Really interesting TV and radio. But whether or not it happens, I suppose and and, frankly I feel like the country cares more about getting a stimulus package passed than they do about seeing Don mcghan testify. I mean, I love the juiciness of it. I love the legal juice. You know someone, but I feel like the country's is sort of beyond that at this point. Do you get that vibe? Yes, absolutely. And you know, one of the things is to slow down the court. You know, I'm a criminal defense attorney right now, and there's a certain you know, there's a there's a time and a season for every ruling under heaven, right? And later ruling if you can delay a ruling of things happening at a different time, Look, it is right now. I mean, probably mad Lor and Pelosi. People are thinking Why are they making a statement about the Corona virus relief package? Why are they talking about this? Well, that's because Trump was able to delay it for months and months and months..
Small businesses fighting to survive the pandemic
"Let's focus on some small business owners today Alex what changes were made to the payroll protection program yes obviously during these are president times slot of small business owners have felt the pressure Lebanese restaurants or retail stores services other businesses that have been impacted by by opposite the pandemic and smashes the corona virus and there's two major programs of that that were pushed through Congress one already existed and that was the call the prickly and economic injury disaster loan program to BSP actively used for the release for hurricanes tornadoes things like that but in this case there is extra funny made for also she was a present to clear it they're able to use some of the funds for the crown of our sense of the server program nothing major really in terms of its regular course except that instead of being a natural disaster they used to this time around for for but the pandemic now the paycheck protection program that you referenced for the look at the most televised news when it first launched it was definitely a rocky ledge rollout because there's some concerns over the bank's been ready to issue the loan for the the program itself is could be rushed through the process because ultimately paychecks are be needed because a lot of folders right rely on those funds that said the president the house and the Senate all agreed to make some changes to it the unanimous vote that I've lived through or at least in the Senate and the then president trump also signed that the biggest change is that no longer will new PPP loan from an older PPP loans can use these funds for payroll of her twenty four week period from when they're dispersed Bedlam that because a lot of restaurants initially in areas of the country that are just starting to open up areas like New York City where I'm sitting right now the district Columbia which will on Monday formally move into what we call phase two of the use of more time to use the funds to bring staff back on board and also the other major changes is the lowest threshold the have to go directly to paychecks to allow a lot of businesses to pay rent pay their vendors you know key things that they'll need in order to fully resume operations hopefully for all of us writer then later are going forward well you know this small businesses make up seventy percent of the jobs in America and the small businesses have problems the whole countries and I have a problem child was far as I'm concerned having we were having a small business you can up small business god help it looks a lot of small companies small businesses now they're continuing to struggle so either you know you read in the paper every day restaurants still going out of business and what have you are there any government support programs in the works yet you know on the local level three level there have been more assistance programs that have been instituted in the city of Tampa itself is on the call one Tampa to where you can get some small grants and even some small loans in order to help on the whole business people flow but as you know the truth runs the way they are most of our business owner still so sugar retailer restaurant sometimes it's always not enough so on a national scale there have been more discussions about maybe the ten Chile refunding the P. P. P. program and all and then allowing businesses to go through again if they need more funding in order to try and keep people on the payroll I think you know this is obviously very hard philosophical discussion because there are some small business owners and everything bothered to apply for president need to it's it's hard because at the end of the day policy makers want to keep people on the job working having some businesses that have a parking PPP level they may have not been allowed to be formally open they did use the time they they brought their staff back to the bottom off the unemployment rolls to do other projects that may be would Amazon dot the US on this our local area some small businesses including in Gloucestershire restaurants use it as a good time to deep clean their restaurants maybe change other restaurant operated for the future I think you're seeing that a lot of Congress men and women are coming on the side of maybe we need to extend this program allows businesses especially small ones on the PPP program really is designed for very small businesses another leg up as we move into the next phase of the of of this current situation and to allow them the flexibility to to of all their business model and what is going to be the the new normal all right to save some jobs maybe even create new ones in the future all this is it because they go what we're dealing with this virus is the unknowns the anonymous and not not just getting sick but how do you run a business when you're not supposed to talk to people with you know other than on a computer or six feet apart from each other you know we're living in a very unique space and time and that system out of being smart about it and she helped washes up it's very very hard to plan even for the government

"Today's episode is brought to you by Lexus. You at Lexus. Their greatest curiosity is you because the most amazing machines aren't inspired by machines they're inspired by Dole that's why Lexus asks different questions better questions more human questions like can you see with your ears and the answers are as inspiring as you are which allowing the police to take guns away from people who judge finds dangerous that included ninety four percent of Democrats eighty five percents Republicans and eighty two percent of independent unspoiled this August even President Donald Trump who otherwise mostly has been an opponent of gun control indicated his support for Red Flag laws traumatic end not permanent so far red flag laws have been enacted by seventeen states plus the district Columbia in Florida where a red flag laws medicine is an example of what many advocate as a way to prevent the mass shootings that have increasingly plagued the United States red flag laws are designed to get mental illness or other factors that might show up in the federal instant background check system and prevent the person from buying a gun from a dealer in the first place the problem is that loopholes it as potentially being a threat to themselves or other people police and courts would have the authority to remove firearms according to Flannery Red Flag Laws on people who have felony criminal record or mental health record those rules are too narrow and too broad they identify lots of people because they had an involuntary commitment. We spoke with Jeffrey Swanson a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine he said we focused all his attention on the point of sale on the other side the National Rifle Association's website criticizes existing Red Flag Laws as violating gun owners Second Amendment Rights Civil Rights and second described scary situation an employee allegedly had confided to a CO worker that if he was fired from his job he would shoot supervisor and other employees though he would warn the eighty five years ago and wouldn't hurt anybody in the also failed to

firearms the Court subsequently issued another order allowing authorities introduction of iheartradio hey brain stuff lauren bogle bomb here in California the manager of a car dealership contacted police and worker in advance so the CO worker could escape thanks to the red flag law the California enacted in two thousand fourteen the police could take action in this case right away without on emissions in state records submitted to the background check system have often enabled people who went onto become mass shooters to obtain guns even when they should have been disqualified begun center for Violence Prevention Research and education at Case Western Reserve University he said this is about putting protocols in place so that when an individual is identify them having guns poses a risk and the person has an opportunity to get the weapons back at some point a flannery said there's due process to that so that it's not authorities away to intervene and take guns away from a person who's perceived as a possible threat they can do that even if the person doesn't have a criminal record or a history of being institutionalized destroy a middle ground between protecting public safety and individual rights a person who's flagged isn't arrested or charged with a crime and authorities have to be able to convince a judge that did some strong public support a Washington Post and ABC News poll conducted in early of September two thousand nineteen for example found that eighty six percent of Americans supported enacted in two thousand eighteen in the weight of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting authorities have utilized it to take guns away for more than two thousand people red flag laws have attract to hold onto the weapons for a year that case described an article by University of California Davis researchers that was published in August of two thousand nineteen in the journal Ause of internal Edmund advocates that are against red flag laws say the seizures of these individuals weapons is a violation of the constitutions guaranteed due process which means the people should have the right to argue their case in court before their guns are taken not after and whether or not red flag laws do much to prevent mass shootings is difficult question to answer the study we mentioned that the of this episode conducted by the UC Davis researchers cited twenty-one cases in California in which a court issued an order to seize guns quote after the subject of the order had made a clear declaration of intent to commit a bash shooting or had exhibited behavior suggesting such an intent but it's not really possible all to prove conclusively that any of the individuals actually would have committed such an act Swanson wrote in Washington Post opinion piece that red flag laws aren't necessary early going to prevent killings by mass shooters except in instances in which alerts citizen notices that an angry young man is amassing an arsenal nevertheless Swanson's imports such laws because he and other researchers have found strong evidence that they reduce another sort of gun violence the cumulatively Inflicts Much Higher Death Poll Suicide by firearm in two thousand seventeen he colleagues calculated that for every twenty guns seized through Red Flag Law one suicide is prevented preventing people with the missile to develop suicidal idealization from getting guns does save lives because research shows that people who attempt suicide by other methods and up surviving eighty to ninety percent of the time but with a gun

"Of special arm that shows, you know, all all potential dries somehow. You know, if you gain off everything in this potential scenario. This kidding. I wish maybe we'll get there someday. But right now, it's going to be marijuana. And and and gall. Yeah. I as I look back. I was in the legislature and looked at over the years we were able to decrease the number of people that were driving drunk, and it became a socially unacceptable thing to do. And I think one of the biggest things that help us along that way was the alcohol Breathalyzer, and the fact that if you did not take the Breathalyzer chest, we're gonna lose your license, right? Massachusetts. Just so you know is one of four states in the country that do not have implied consent for a Breathalyzer for marijuana. In other words, if if today we had this device, and we sold the Boston police pull you over you could not take that test and have no ramification. So that's something. I legislate you're in their wisdom looks at if you know, the governor's told this impaired driving build it that he wants to see passed this year in remember. Of the legislature will be looking closely at this with their forty seven states and the district Columbia that haven't played consent for marijuana Breathalyzer in we don't have it in Massachusetts in. It is a problem. So hopefully, they'll remedy that. Is there a benefit to the police collecting marijuana dater data if they're not using it? Anyway, if they're just using the alcohol data, let's say. In limbo, or whatever. Yeah. I think there will be a deterrent component to that as well. Even well, we're not waiting a while. We're waiting for the legislature. Dak I also think that part of this is education. Believe it or not in many states. Adults twenty percent of adults. I believe in Michigan believe if they can if it's legal to smoke marijuana. You can drive your car. Having smoked marijuana in. You know, people have to realize it's not legal to drive impaired period, period. So one would hope that the education component of this will help to to get people to smart up because while you were I may not do it. It's the person in the car behind us, or whatever that is is driving stolen. Go to pose a problem to us in our family..
2020 election could be another 1972 for Democrats
"Me. It's fascinating looking back at the nineteen seventies in as someone that has studied history, and you know, about how sometimes there's these political cycles. It's fascinating to see how what happened in nineteen. Seventy two is starting to play out a little bit now as we get close to the the twenty twenty elections. And I was hoping you might be able to explain what happened in seventy two compared to what we're seeing today. Yeah, it's interesting. The the similarities are really Erie. Basically what happened in seventy two is you're coming off an election in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight where the incumbent vice president Hubert, Humphrey ran and lost really a razor close election. And he had won basically by not participating in the primaries. You only piss in one South Dakota. We came in third, but he went a lot of delegates at the convention. So as a result that was really? In. There was really there was there was a lot of incense between between between really inflamed the liberal, but the liberal insurrectionist anti-vietnam people was forty two, gene. Mccarthy in the primaries because the won the primary supported the Johnson ministrations proliferating in Vietnam war got the nomination. So it was a result in the general election. Eugene McCarthy finally get endorsed Hubert Humphrey, the kid by saying essentially, probably the most lukewarm endorsement, you can imagine. Support Hubert Humphrey and asked him I said my and asked my supporters suffer with me. And then. Where? I mean, I don't know. I don't know if you can take an endorsement that's a lot to try to fit on a button. But I'd I'd wear that. But that's funny. And then what happened was so after sixty eight from Richard Nixon Republican beats Humphrey, and then you have the scenario where you McCarthy who was the only really anti Vietnam war candidate really galvanize Westport among them by nineteen seventy-two Nike seventy one seventy two the there's a seismic change in the Democratic Party at moved to the left and the Vietnam war now, even Hubert Humphrey was running again opposed to be Warren called for termination of all troops in south East Asia. So now, gene McCarthy just one of many candidates matter of fact, pretty much majority of candidates were now opposed to be at Phnom results. You've lost that issue in seventy two. He runs again and Hubert Humphrey runs again if he kind of the establishment candidate. I mean, you haven't this time around you have George McGovern though, because he was seen as more galvanized into the anti Vietnam war can't war insurrectionist, so Israel, real key. Who was two hundred one at the beginning when nomination gene McCarthy is an afterthought only win three. Point six percent of the of the vote the popular vote among the democratic primary winner primary contested. And as a result, you have George McGovern winning the nomination then going onto lose miserably in the general election only winning one St. Massachusetts. Phone South Dakota. He and he wanted to why he knew the district Columbia. What's interesting is you see it very similar Somme or today because in two thousand and sixty in sixteen Hillary Clinton won the nomination, despite the fact that a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters felt cheated win a lot of the leak memos. Catchy note that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic Party had tried to basically basically worked rigged the system for Hillary Clinton results in the general election. Bernie Sanders did come out he did support Hillary Hillary Clinton. But now, you have the scenario we are a lot of Bernie Sanders positions for Medicare for all for example, for a single payer for healthcare for breaking up the corporations breaking up, the big bang and democratic socialism. A lot of those issues are now the mainstream the Democratic Party taxing the rich Camille, the Harris, for example, was moved to the left on MIR. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts running the scenario. Bernie cares. Not the only liberal alternative to the more. Moderate establishment, the Democratic Party. And it'll be interesting to see if he can. A lot of the people over somebody like Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii. I'm a lot of others are now running is progressive. No, there really aren't very many New Democrats. Never Bill Clinton ran down a crowd of moderate democrat. There really aren't now we have Mary where everybody's essentially moving to the left and Bernie Sanders is just you know, it's just one choice of many lip pretentious liberal candidate. You only see a couple of very few New Democrats. You have the Beto veto from down from Texas who lost Iraq Iraq, you lost to Ted Cruz. You also have some people are talking about in south bend, the mayor Buddha judge Judy judge. Yup. Yeah. He's also someone that's kind of like fresh blood for them. But other than that, you see a lot of the same names coming up people are like crossing their fingers Joe Biden runs again, which is fascinating too. Because you know, he he sat out, and obviously if he would have ran during this last election that would have really complicated things you throw him into the mix with the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders popularity going on the one I would look to to when I think when he does. And now somebody who if you're looking for somebody who gets votes in red states. Steve Bullock in Montana's, a very interesting candidate because he was just reelected in Montana by four points the same election when Donald Trump won by twenty five twenty point and got about twenty five percent of Trump's supporters. If he's one candidate could make that general election case, perhaps. But of course, right now. He's known as Peter Budaj Jagan, you know, some of the other. Yeah. And big part of this too. Is that it's you're looking at a Donald Trump that's going to run in a lot of times. You are curious. What are the odds that he gets elected? So he's got a lot in his side right now, the fact that he's the sitting president adds a lot of favor to him being reelected. You see historically speaking that seems to help pave things a little bit. But even if you look at some of the polls coming in and you look at some of the people in Vegas when they set the odds, they're still setting him as the by far favourite. And I think that when you have a crowded democrat field in you don't know who's gonna come forward on that side that also hurts the Democrats costs us because they don't have like one person they can rally behind right now. In the case of the Republicans are kinda worked in their favor. Last time you saw Donald Trump rise to the very top in a lot of people were reluctant because they didn't want him to. But he's still didn't regardless. I don't know if there's any democrat that could rise like Donald Trump did during this last election. Yeah, it's interesting because if you're looking for somebody like that. Donald trump. And you're looking for somebody who basically people would not be thinking of right now the one candidate. I'm not sure she can win. But the one candidate. I think you're gonna see. Well, we'll surprise a lot of people. It's healthy gabbert the congresswoman from Hawaii simply because she's running. It's kind of a younger version of Bernie Sanders. This is somebody who was the co-chair who had worked Democratic National Committee lifetime, actually resigned. Her post may end up supporting Bernie Sanders because you're supposed to technically be neutral what she has a lot of other candidates. Don't have EPA episode and non interventionist foreign policy, and that's something that has peeled really across the political spectrum. Remember when Ron Paul ran, for example in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve a lot of liberals who didn't Mike is positions. A lot of other things like position on being a non interventionist and TC only can it in the field that emphasize Matt right now. So I can see her really taking a play for that type for a lot of example, a lot of independent voters. A lot of liberal voters. Who think Bernie Sanders is perhaps a little bit too all a little bit more charismatic? That's the one that I would watch. And as I say. That's deep. Bullock, the governor Montana. If he does run I do think if you look at these polls that show what Democrats want more than anything else. One AD logical. Purity is an eastern buddy who I think can make the case that you look I've gotten elected into red state interested state, I've been relatively progressive governor of expanded Medicaid expanded gun control. I've I've supported campaign finance reform. He can potentially make that case. It's kind of like Bill Clinton in ninety two. He certainly wasn't the favorite of a lot of Democrats who thought that you know, who I think would would grabs in heart wanted somebody like Jerry Brown or Tom Harkin or someone who's more liberal they closed Bill Clinton because they've not a power for twelve years. He he could win votes in the conservative state of Arkansas and Bill Clinton got the nomination that time and tarp emphasizing that I think there could he could potentially move up those the two candidates. I'm kinda watching right now, then you really haven't had much name recognition back and see where they can make an

Now at KCBS earlier this morning, we spoke with two Margaret Brennan CBS news, senior foreign affairs correspondent and moderator of face the nation about Roger stone, and who he is in relationship to the Trump presidential campaign. He wasn't officially at the senior ranks of the campaign itself. But he was in contact with them after having left the campaign earlier on and he is well documented in terms of even referring to himself as a dirty trickster. He kind of liked that moniker and embraced being an operative who could help by perhaps playing a little dirty in terms of how he conducted himself during the campaign. This arrest was very much expected because of what has already been reported in terms of his contact with WikiLeaks. Now, you have a special counsel, laying it out in these charging documents that CBS news senior, foreign affairs.

"Right. In addition of what I've already put out there for you. I do want to ask this question. And I recognize it. This may be one of those things that's dealt with a little bit. More effectively inner personally or private, but you know, it's such a prevailing topic right now. And there's a lot of caveats, but found this piece here, recently and Forbes it said that marijuana support grows two out of three Americans back legalization. That's the highest percentage ever. Ever. The Gallup is found in its decades long series on national polls on this topic. My first reaction is I'm not so sure people would be shocked by that. I'm not asking you whether or not you. Well, I will ask you how that hits you whether you're saddened by that. Whether you think it's inevitable, whether you consider to be a good thing. But I don't know whether we can be surprised by the those types of poll results, if anything they been trending that way. Although this two-thirds we're talking about seventy percent of Americans talking about making illegal. That's that's pretty that's crazy. I mean, that's way high. This goes back to actually last month. That was US adults. That's up from two thousand seventeen was in mid sixties. Pew Research Center. Sixty two percent. Of adults said they support legal. Marijuana. That's up a bit. Just a tick. Most importantly, though, it's double what it was in two thousand. When it was thirty one percent approval. According to. Pew Research Center. Now, we know there's an full states that have legalized it district Columbia. We've got a lot of medical. It's far the problems part of the problem with respect to the legalisation is its classification on the federal level where it doesn't belong and the second is. The idea that we have differ jurisdictions with different rules, which makes it more difficult as well. There are certain arguments that are advanced on behalf of this that I think have more merit than others. There's definitely a racial imbalance. In the criminal Justice system on this by this product. That's that's number one. When when I see billions of dollars being projected in tax revenue. I get just as. Skeptical as I do when I hear about sin taxes and things of that sort. I am more about trying to figure out public policy and public policy to me isn't necessarily as simple as whether or not. We can make money. Matter of fact, I understand that is part of the discussion, but I don't consider that to be earnest comprehensive public policy. Now public policy would include how it's distributed to whom how it's made available who regulates it who's allowed who's not age cutoffs things of that sort. Nah. Probably not shocking the radio audience when I say that you could drive up and down your street and somebody because okay up with a bag. That probably means you could drive up and down your street and somebody go hook up your kid with a bag. Not good. True. But not good. I don't know. Whether it's as either or's people suggests which is to say that if you make it all legal all of that will go away. I don't think to just a few if you legalized gambling. That means the local book down the street goes away. That's your boy you like the ratios you like the odds you like how he treats you you get paid you pay him. Bubba. Bubba thirteen. There are those who say it's bad because it's a gateway drug that's where science looks to check in. And they say they've not done enough to be able to make that determination. Although I would think that I don't know since at Lisa sixty should have a little bit. Of a decent grasp on all that. Not everybody's fort. I saw the Detroit chapter the NWEA CPI was no not good. Two quick. It actually in their estimation. Only makes a bad situation worse. But those polls jumped out at me, maybe even more than two candy bars. And we talk about that.

"Today. He and ten other democratic senators sent a letter asking Trump Trump worked to disclose all financial ties to Saudi Arabia. Good to have you center. Tell you about that letter? Well, this letter very simply see. WCHS facts relating to the possible motive of the president for ineffective, aiding and abetting Saudi Arabia's, disinformation and distraction campaign. And as you outlined so well, at the opening, he has deep lucrative, longstanding financial ties to the Saudis. He is sold them apartments and condos. He rents them to them and hotel bookings have literally saved Trump properties, and they continue to make these payments to him in violation of the chief anti-corruption probation of the United States constitution known as the minds. 'cause we've just surmounted a major legal hurdle in the last couple of weeks when the court ruled in the district Columbia that we have standing two hundred members of congress. And in this lawsuit Trump versus Blumenthal versus Trump. We see basically facts and that letter also asked for facts relating to these. Financial ties, are you struck? Do you find it is aren't uncanny similarity the way that he talks about the Saudi regime, how bin Salman and put it is really striking and what's equally so is the reports that the Saudis actually provided or sought to provide aid during the campaign they met in Trump towers. Very reminiscent of the meeting with Russian agents in Trump Tower is Donald Trump, junior met with a Representative of prince, Mohammad bin Salam, and he was offered aid by the Saudis. And later the vendor that the Saudis said they would provide was paid two million dollars. So there are really striking parallels here. I wanna pivot to rod Rosenstein because it's something that you've put a lot of effort into thought about in terms of protecting him. He gave up song interview the Wall Street Journal day in his office, very rare public interview. What was your interpretation of what the message he was sending ones in my view, the message was very clearly. He's going to stand behind the special counsel to presidents. Bullying is going nowhere so far as he's concerned, if the president wants to get rid of special counsel, he's going to have to fire rob Rosenstein. And these reports very recently, there was a Bloomberg report about Muller completing his work right after the election. I. Inc are to be treated with a large grain of salt and both Rosenstein and Muller are by the book professional prosecutors. They're going to do this investigation and his message in that interview was we're going to do this investigation in the right way. There's more reporting about Manafort having met nine times with special counsel's office more focus on Roger stone. What are your expectations for where this goes? Next? The evidence is pretty clear that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians and there's evidence pretty clear. The evidence is there whether they have enough of it right to bring criminal charges is another issue in town, and likewise, with obstruction of Justice charges what we saw in foreign Komi and the threats to the investigators in various other actions linked to the White House is a potential structure of Justice case. Is it not absolutely essential that in both of these cases vis-a-vis Russia and Saudi Arabia that we act. Have a transparent and public record of what the actual financial entanglements are. It is essential. That's the reason why we brought this lawsuit. And the reason why we wrote this letter today because it not only violates the law for the president to be taking these payments and benefits. The reason that the founders of this nation wanted that clause was to prevent exactly this kind of potential compromise of the public interest. What Donald Trump may be doing. Unfortunately, and tragically for the country is putting personal interest ahead of public interest. And so uncovering all these financial ties or essential and the lawsuit that we brought with overs is Trump is one way of doing it. But a democratic house of representatives also would have subpoena power to seek the same kind of. All right, Senator Richard Blumenthal. Thanks for being with me. Thank you for more. I want to bring MSNBC legal analysts. My Wiley former. Yes, turning an Andrea Bernstein who's WNYC senior editor co host the podcast Trump Inc. We've got a great report out that..
