"Congress spent years fighting with the White House over whether they could force former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify about his role related to the Mueller investigation. And then finally, with Biden, an office there was a deal that avoided a high stakes confrontation in the courts about when and how exactly, you could make. The White House counsel testified to Congress and the deal said that again would testify. But it only testify about the Mueller report about how the White House handled the Mueller report. And so you couldn't have what members of Congress love where it's just, you know, free, willing thing where they get to ask about whatever they feel like asking about, Uh, McGann's testimony also was not televised. They did it in a closed session. Then they released a transcript afterward. And frankly, the transcript is kind of boring, right? It is And I wouldn't say we really learned anything new. I'd say it more. We sort of had soft confirmation of lots of stuff that we suspect it was going on. That doesn't really move the ball beyond where it already is. This The revelations about what Trump was trying to do how he was interested in getting Mueller fired and how he was, you know, threatening to some extent there might be consequences of people didn't go along with that. We're all things we've heard before and believed to be true. What McGann did here is what attorneys try to get their clients to do in testimony right, which is that he was disciplined. He didn't answer questions. You didn't have to answer. If things were a while ago, he would say My memory's not crisp and declined to answer a lot of things. He was good about not answering questions that weren't asked. It's sort of the you want your testimony in in a lot of cases to be as as narrow as possible. Give give no more than you absolutely have to. It seemed like he was he was putting that into practice, right? Yeah, exactly. He was very careful. And he had he was occasionally I would characterize him as slightly cute when they asked him about particular statements attributed to Trump and he said, you know, well, the The text speaks for itself or that sort of thing, which was sort of a soft way of admitting that Trump said something like that without really committing himself.

"They wanted correspondence from him, and he didn't give any. I'm not sure if he was able to, uh, you know, uh, claim executive privilege or whatever it was So to me, this kind of hints that they were trying to go around his legal protections and go straight to Apple. I think that again. We don't know a lot about them again. Peace at this point, but given that it was coming, um from from the president's own Department of Justice, it doesn't seem like that They were somehow going road in that regard, Although I will say one interesting note here, um Any time. There's a subpoena like this. That's that's going to someone that raises issues like this, um and is going to be under scrutiny that's almost always signed off on personally indirectly by either the attorney general or for some reason, he is recused from a very senior deputy, and in this case We have both of President Trump's attorney generals, as well as the deputy attorney general, all apparently indicating they don't recall this ever coming up. Which tells me someone else signed off on it. So it will be interesting to note who ultimately signed off on this that it certainly does raise that potential. It definitely does. We're going to keep an eye on this, Alex and see where this develops and will definitely give you a call back. And discussing it further length. How about that? That would be fantastic. All right. Thank you so much, Alex. Alex Vogel with the Vogel Group, former Senate majority Leader chief counsel Now look For me. I am sceptical. I mean, I've I've gotten to the point now where journalism basically doesn't exist anymore. Uh, everyone has a spin. No matter what side you're on, everyone has a spin. And The second that I saw this. One other one other thing with Don McGahn, his wife apparently got a notice of the same kind now, uh, one quote source. Saying that Apple received a subpoena February 23rd and another source saying it came from a federal grand jury. There is Really no corroboration on this. We can't really confirm this. But look, they're going after the wife. Going after Don McGahn after Don McGahn, Uh, said that he would not come and testify. He wasn't going to do it. He knew that the Russian hoax was bogus, and he had executive privilege. He is the White House senior counsel. So to try to force him in there wasn't going to work. So what did they do? They went around him. And of course, it was the Trump Department of Justice. Do you think when we look back over history, how many people in the Department of Justice under Trump? We're trying to get him. It's pretty much everybody My feeling about the attorney General William Barr, which was a mistake. To appoint him. William Barr was total swamp. And my feeling is that he was put there, uh, to protect the information and not go after anyone and really get to the bottom of anything. John Durham. Anybody seen him? He doesn't even exist all that we've seen one photograph that's act. But these guys were after Trump and trying to cover themselves and we're going to keep an eye on this and see where it goes..
The Real Story Behind The Don McGahn DOJ Subpoena
"Great website. Theresa Munro Hamilton reports that the Department of Justice under the Trump administration secretly subpoenaed information. And former White House counsel Don McGahn, a Democrat. Rep. Adam Schiff, it was leaked to The New York Times, of course, seem to be falling apart. There's no real spying allegedly took place. The story was written by Michael Schmidt. He's a hack Charlie Savage, a hack. Reported quote that the DOJ secretly subpoenaed Apple for personal information on again and his wife in February, 18. And then barred Apple from telling them about the reported move during that time period under a non disclosure agreement. The devil appears to be in the details here, and this may not be the breaking story. The media are apparently running with Schmidt tweeted quote New DOJ secretly subpoenaed Apple for personal info of Trump's then White House done council dime again and his wife in February, 18. The O. J. Bard Apple from telling them at the time, But three years later, May 21 Apple told them. It's unclear what investigation it was related to Clarifying an interesting tweet was then issued by Savage. The co author. Quote, Apple recently told Don McGahn, Trump's former White House counsel. That the Justice Department had secret collected data about his account of a February 2018 subpoena. Caution. You can't conclude from this fact them again was intentionally targeted. It began was not intentionally targeted. Then the whole story is evidently not what was purported to be, You understand, folks. That is for investigating a leak, and there's a whole bunch of people that they're looking into. They're not supposed to investigate a leak. Apparently, that's the case, particularly if it That benefits the Democrats and hurts the country. The accusations do not go into detail about the DOJ investigation. It's unknown what federal investigators were looking into. Even if McGann himself was their primary focus, or whether it was somebody had contact with Apple reportedly did not inform again what they had turned over to DOJ. Report did state that Apple received them again subpoena weeks after another subpoena was issue that was connected to leaks and the Russia probe. The subpoena involves records belonging to California Democratic representatives, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell. Again. The subpoenas were ostensibly an attempt to identify individuals who leak classified national security information. During Trump administration and were not specifically targeting shift.

Dozens of high temperature records could fall this week as temperatures soar into the triple digits in parts of California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona one whose time 1 46. Over the last several weeks, You've likely seen headlines about the Trump administration trying to track and investigate journalists and members of Congress. Now we're learning that the Trump Justice Department was even trying to gather information on the White House counsel. Don McGahn Reporting on this in The Washington Post is Matt's Patoski who joins us on the common news line. Good afternoon. Hi. Thanks for having me. Matt as you report this has to do with the request made to Apple by the Justice Department. What was the trump DOJ looking for? Well, we don't know exactly. All we know is basically what has been disclosed to don McGahn. And that's that the Justice Department in February of 2018 subpoenaed his Apple data. Now there's a wide range of data that could be an issue there and we don't unfortunately Have clarity on what that is, or frankly, even if don McGahn was sort of specifically the name target of anything. A lot of times. What can happen is DOJ can be looking at a whole host of phone numbers or email accounts while they're looking at someone else and just want to know Hey, who is the name effectively behind the number? It's possible that they sort of stumbling them again that way, But we just don't have good clarity on that, or specifically, what sort of data they were. They were trying to get. From, I guess the context of the time, though, what was happening politically for the Trump administration around that 2018 period? Well, a lot so most notably, probably that everyone remembers is you have the Mueller investigation and, you know, don McGahn. In addition to being the White House lawyer, you know a potential key witness because of his interactions with President Trump. He was also a lawyer on the Trump campaign's So It's possible that maybe that was what was that issue? Don McGahn was sort of famously. Involved in this. Guess you would call it a dispute where Mueller determined that President Trump had sort of asked him about firing Mueller. President Trump was very upset that that was reported in the press, and it was reported in the press a month before the subpoena, So there's some speculation and it's just that speculation that perhaps His records were sought in the leak investigation of that there's nothing classified about that, so that that seems less likely, but it's just another event that's happening kind of in the time to maybe I'm a cynic, and I think that I am, but I wasn't really surprised when I saw the headlines about you know the Trump administration trying to get dirt on journalists or lawmakers from an opposing party but wasn't don McGahn sort of in the Trump circle, maybe not inner circle but in his sphere of influence. Absolutely. He was the campaign lawyer. He was the White House counsel. I mean, they had some tension over the Mueller investigation. But even you saw Don McGahn sort of came in and privately testified after years of wrangling. Congress recently and was somewhat defensive of the president. I mean, and this is not a guy like Michael Cohen, a former lawyer that the president had sort of a famous an epic falling out with this is a guy who was in the administration was on the campaign. So this is a lot more questions and answers right now, And at this point, there's not really been as you report comment from Apple or McGann or the Justice Department. Former A G s. What's it going to take for Congress or reporters to try and get a handle on how deep these investigations went? Well, you have the Justice Department inspector general who is looking at this all now, and that sort of cuts. Both ways eventually will probably get a report from them..

"White House counsel Don McGahn was told. Last month, the Justice Department subpoenaed information about him and his wife in 2018.

It's great to see you, too, Larry and I love your insights into the trump White House since you were there on the ground boots on the ground or in your case, I guess you know chills, so I don't the ground. Yeah. In the White House during the Trump administration and joining us right now is Joe diGenova, our legal analyst, former U S attorney for the District of Columbia because, on Friday, the media was all its hitter about this story. They were all wringing their hands very upset that during the Trump administration, you know Joe leaks to the media are are illegal. There were a lot of leaks coming out, especially of the House Intel Committee. It appeared in a couple of other congressional committees. And the Justice Department. They pulled some metadata from Apple on Adam Schiff and some staffers and some other people there in Congress to try to track down where these leaks were coming from. Talk to me about the legality here. Whether this is an appropriate way for the Justice Department to behave and also sort of the the double standard of outrage with regard to the Justice Department. Look, you know, hunting down this crime using metadata versus some of the other intrusions that we've seen from other Justices Department Justice Department, including this one. Well. First of all, the investigation of leaks is authorized. Under the National Security Act, and by the Justice Department's organic legislation. There is a national security division at the department, whose responsibility it is is to enforce the espionage laws, which includes leaking classified information. Adam Schiff and the Democratic members of his committee where long suspected of leaking classified information during the Trump administration. In an effort to quote unquote get President Trump and so the Justice Department. Apparently, we don't know all the facts but apparently Sought the metadata, which Adam Schiff himself had sought in his role as the chairman of the intelligence committee, Adam Schiff had gone out and gotten the metadata phone and email data. Of Rudy Giuliani, John Solomon, Devin Nunes, Republican staffers and my wife, Victoria. Tempting. It is rather bizarre to hear Pelosi and shift now complain about the Department of Justice, doing exactly what shifted under his authority as chairman. That's interesting. I do want to ask you, Joe, like, Don't you believe that this Department of Justice and I'm actually surprised with Attorney General Merrick Garland that they really are honing in on the Trump administration. These are investigations are only going to continue. For the Trump administration, despite the fact that they're out of power. I don't think there's any doubt that the days of an objective Justice Department are over. We have watched this under. I'm really shocked at Merrill Merrick Garland stewardship. That he has allowed this to transpired. He's always had a reputation for being a moderate. It appears that he has either no control or doesn't care about what's going on in the department. This is clearly a continuation of the Trump derangement syndrome by using the forces. Which were begun with Mueller and Weisman. To go after continued to go after Trump people putting aside what the attorney general and and the Manhattan district attorney or doing in New York to trump and the Trump family, But we learned, for example, that in February of 2018 Um Robert Mueller and Weissman went after the phone and email records of Don McGahn and his wife. Yes. There was some speculation about this that it might have been the Department of Justice in February of 2018. It was not. It was Mueller. It was part of his ongoing witch hunt of President Trump and those in the Trump administration. So it is a continuation Mercedes of the same thing that was going on with Mueller and Weisman in 2018. Well, that story about Tom McCann. Let's Let's pull that thread a little bit here because he knew at that moment was the White House counsel in 2018. They pulled his information from Apple and then his wife. I mean, what? What is the is that just an intimidation tactic? What is the justification for going after a man's wife was working in the White House? Frankly, I think it's outrageous. They went after the White House counsel. There's got to be some firewalls here, between between the DOJ in the White House. Wouldn't there be? Well, remember, Remember when you aren't a special counsel, which Mueller was? He is the attorney general. Under the rules, he does not have to consult. With bar or whoever was the attorney general at the time, he accessions whoever he does not have to consult with that. So when Mueller and Weissman issued those subpoenas for the metadata From a gone and his wife and others. No one in the department necessarily would have known about that. This again is another example of the craziness that went on under Mueller. But But, Joe, I think when it comes to the don McGahn records, it really does show that you know if it was Mueller asking for these records, it was because don McGahn felt pressured. I mean, the accounts show that Don McGahn felt pressured to fire Mueller. So do you think that's the reason why We saw the Justice Department make this move or allegedly make this could have been. It could have been one. There's no way we can tell And we may never know because there's certainly no since Republicans do not have the subpoena power do not control either House of Congress or the White House. There will be no investigation. Of anything that was done by Mueller. I can assure you and certainly the shift and company. We'll have no problem doing whatever they want to do. This is I. I must say elections do have consequences. And when we lost Georgia, we lost the ball games. Jodi Jenna. But let's shift from the questionable legal tactics of the federal government and moved to the corrupt media because over the weekend on Friday, I should say Thursday and Friday we saw Jeffrey Toobin returned to CNN after I mean some outrageous and disgusting behavior at the workplace when he was at the New Yorker. Let me ask you just a basic question. If I'm a woman and I work at CNN, do I have a case against CNN for creating a hostile work environment? I would not want to work there with Jeffrey Toobin knowing all of this Well, it's a needless to say CNN has no sense of shame. I mean, they've long since lost that putting Jeffrey Toobin back on television is really the embarrassment and then they did that phony makeup interview..

Is the Nest Audio smart speaker worth your time and money
"Despite. The name change the nest audio is really update to the original Google Home Smart Speaker. So what's new about it? So audio is a way overdue upgrade for Google the home speaker the very first one came out in two thousand sixteen. So it's been four years since they've done anything with US mid range speaker and. Everything is different. The design is different. The size is different. The sound quality is different even the price is different than the original Google home. It's sort of a totally new thing. So let's break down. In terms of price in terms of the the differences like dig into what exactly consumers are going to get with us next audio. So it's one hundred dollars and that is twice the price of a nest mini ness or fifty dollars. Usually you can get them for less if they're on sale and I suspect the same thing will probably happen with nest audio but on the shelf, the MS RPM is one hundred bucks. So for that hundred dollars, you're GONNA get a smart speaker that honestly it's smaller than I thought it would be when I got it. I was like Oh this is actually pretty compacted slake almost seven inches tall. And it has that fabric cover all the way around it. So the nest mini and the Google Home Max had that fabric on the front. This one has the fabric all the way around it, and it has a totally different shape. The original Google home in my opinion didn't look that great. It was kind of weird looking certainly, not like anything that Amazon put out, and this one is a little more soft around the edges. More of a design aesthetic to it that it seems like they pay more attention to that this time and I like that it comes in five colors comes in like a pink Blue Gray, a a green. And then like darker, Gray. SEGALLA options, you know if you want it to fit in your home if he wanted to look good on your shelf, it's definitely better this time around. What about the sound quality? How does that compare to the original and really has a compared to some of the other speakers in the market taking the Amazon Echo and apples homepod nest audio, sound way better than the Google home that came before it. The vocals our whole lot clear pretty much mid base. All of it is better than the home. It's definitely an improvement in that respect. I Don mcgahn Echo speakers because I am working from home like a lot of people and I only have a home pot and the old Google speakers at my house. So TVD on that also, Amazon. Just released a new echo. So we have yet to test that out as well. So it'll be interesting to see how those to compare especially because the new echo is also hundred dollars. So if you're on the fence and you don't quite know which assistant you want, it's going to be interesting to see which one is going to give you a better sound quality It's really close to home potty. My opinion to home pot is a great speaker premium speaker at obviously costs a whole lot more and it is a little bit better but I think if you're a regular person and you're not an audio file and you just want to hear good music. Nest definitely deliver that. You didn't like about this picker. I would say that the Google smarts that you're getting in wing talked about this a little bit more later on too but there's not much to it. You know it's it's Google speaker and I think maybe at this point in twenty twenty, we've gone through four or five almost five years of smart speakers and were sort of used to what does. So every speaker has google assistant in Google assistant is gonna be the Google Assistant. So you're not getting a lot of surprising new google features with it. I will say on going back to sound quality, there is left and right channel separation. If you have Tunis audio speakers on, there's already a promotion. If you buy two, you get a discount in I highly recommend that they did send me to I tried out the channel separation and it's really cool. It's really effective and it's probably the one thing that makes me feel like I got a lot from one hundred dollars for my two hundred dollars if you get a pair. That channel separation is cool. Yeah. I, know they made a big deal about it during the week Google presentation, the having sort of rooms and multiple speakers linked together. Alternately. For you is it worth the hundred dollar price tag that is you know quite a bit more. It's it's it's not a small mouth change especially during these times. Yeah. It's not hundred dollars a lot and a while there are discounts and promotions and you know there are I think plenty of people to pay Andre Dollars for speaker. It's a really interesting question because of what else? Google makes. So if you look at s mini, that's fifty dollars to get tunas minis for the same hundred dollars and suddenly you can broadcast to another room. You can have multi room audio, you can pair them together group to play music you know at the same time in different rooms. So you're GONNA get a little more functionality that way if you buy two many's rather than one nest audio. And then if you think about it from a smart home perspective, you can get a nest hub smart display for I. Think Eighty nine dollars. So for even less than that, you can get a Google speaker plus all the visuals in all the smart home integration you get being able to see a camera or a doorbell or watch TV or play a game on a smart display so. I think you have to really want the audio aspects of the Speaker to go forward over Tunis many or over a tub. But it's a good speaker you know and I think certainly on sale it's it's worth it hundred dollars. Isn't I don't think it's unreasonable if you want good audio and you wanna Google. Speaker.

Frankly, it was unprecedented that they even allowed the White House counsel the time Don McGahn to testify before Muller for 30 hours. That's insanity. There's there's got to be a line in the sand somewhere. They sent over 1.5 million pages of documents of documents to the Special counsel's office.

"Tonight House Democrats saying they're open to impeaching president president trump again. The House counsel pushing for testimony from former White House Attorney Don mcgann in federal court in federal court filing today arguing. His testimony is critical article as it could lead to new new articles of impeachment. This comes as the justice. Department is arguing. The court should stay out of the fight as impeachment is already going on Shimon Peres out front with with with much more on this first. All folks are going to a second impeachment. Are you serious but what is this all about. It's really about precedent for Congress. This is all about being able to get information formation that they believe they are entitled to and in fact some federal judges and this is why this is now in the appeals process have cited with Congress Saying saying that the president is not immune from the scrutiny. That members of Congress have put him now that he's under now because of the investigations In Congress so there are two things going on here and the first thing is is that the judiciary committee which has been looking into the entire Russian investigation the also the obstruction of justice. The extension of the Muller Investigation. They still want the Don mcgann testimony and they still Don mcgann to come in and testify. Obviously for Don mcgann He doesn't they WANNA do that. He's waiting to hear how the courts ultimately decide. But what makes him so important. He was one of the most prominent witnesses in the entire Muller investigation certainly certainly as a related to the obstruction issue. He spent thirty hours with Muller. There's a lot of information that you think that he can provide the other thing is that they want this information because they they say that it could help them in their process certainly in their impeachment because of the they say this shows that the president his past in previous interaction certainly when it comes to influence from foreign countries and also the obstruction issue. And so they're saying they need this information to all now. Obviously in the Appeals Court We'll see they do say as you point out that. Listen if there's information that they can get Regarding began that they can use That could potentially can lead to more Articles of impeachment. They would do that politically. I don't know if that's going to happen. But certainly the lawyers for the for. Congress are suggesting that that that could possibly happen to see you. Thank you so much all right. Everyone's back with me Corey. You've got I mean I don't know Carr Heads GonNa idea idea like more articles of impeachment coming forward but before that happens. What do you think of this that? The House has the need mcgann's testimony because it could lead the new information that could lead to more articles of impeachment. I really look. I think we absolutely need another article of impeachment on obstruction of justice. Mr Muller outlined ten instances the report of obstruction of justice. And the only reason why he didn't file criminal charges against the president is because they're a department of Justice memos that say were wrongly in my opinion that you can't indict diet sitting president but Hamilton and others who supported that idea of immunity. It was a controversial idea. Even at the founding people disagreed with it his point was that the reason for the immunity eighty is that impeachment has to come first that it's a constitutional obligation to remove criminal president so that he or she then can be tried after removed from office and the assumption was of course.

I just wish my chairman and actually read the rest of it that he has been offered to read, which he is does not to read, but he didn't leave out. One thing he left out something. In the mall report from just now. I read mcgann's testimony, beautifully did everything. But he left out what he doesn't have to come back to in the frustrating thing that brought us here again.

Looks like the real total end of democracy. Open your eyes. If this is a constitutional crisis. How can Democrats not move forward with impeachment hearings? We have the option of impeachment, and we think this is a constitutional crisis starting peach mint proceedings. Why not pursue impeachment? Why are you resisting? Some people argue we've been constitutional crisis, since Donald Trump was elected president, joining us now to discuss Jonathan Gillam former FBI agent, federal air Marshall, author of sheep, no more, Danielle McLaughlin. Attorney constitutional expert Daniel, you're a democrat, right? Well, I'm a liberal. I'm a liberal liberal. Okay. So do you realize that the media, the ninety nine percent of the media that we're going with this Russia hoax, conspiracy theory all the lying that they've done the last two years? We've had four separate investigations that say, no consp- conspiracy. No collusion. No, obstruction nothing. But and they ignore the they got nothing. Right. For two years. They support your liberal views. Why, why should anyone ever trust these people? Again. Hey, sean. Hey, Jonathan, you know, obviously, there was no connection made in our report between Russia's if the Trump campaign, although they report was quite clear that Russia tried very hard. And the campaign was open to it. But to your point no conspiracy, and obstruction thirteen points. Kinship. Incidences we found possible obstruction. He lifted to congress to figure out what that was actually something that rose to label. The current reporting has been pretty good. Honestly. You think the reporting has been good as it related to the Muller investigation? I think actually there's so much in that report that wasn't a surprise. Is there any? No, no, no. They have been a suring us forever that this president is guilty. And it came four separate times. Just the opposite of proven true, and they had their hopes their dreams their fantasies their desires shattered when the Muller. Report didn't give them what they want Jonathan I mean I ninety nine point nine percent. They just purposefully lied. That's all they did is li- day in and day out every second minute hour of every twenty four hour day of every seven day week and month for two years. Sean first off, I want to congratulate Danielle because she's finally saying that she's a liberal and does not identify the democrat. And I think that's a huge leap forward. I think more people that are on the left to do that. And I think this actual subject that you're speaking about would actually start to make more sense to all these people out there that say they're Democrats, because the reality is, Sean, you're, you're Dakhli. Right. I'm going to be giving a speech later today in Wayne County, Michigan at the Republican committee there and I'm going to be talking about the fog of war and into the fog of war doesn't only exist in war and war isn't just something that we're used guns and bullets propaganda and subversion are warfare. And what we're seeing with the media and with molar, and with Komi and was struck in page and McCabe. And all these people are subversive tactics and spying on a president. Subversive tactic and misrepresenting, the facts and miss reporting the facts is a subversive propaganda tactic of warfare. And I think the majority of people that say they're Democrats or identifies being liberal, if they see the reality of what's happening, they're going to start to see that they have been under a mist of lies that are just shallow enough that they don't question. And that's what's happening here. Danielle I, I've got four examples here of reporting, that was born out in the middle of the first is the town meeting with Russian offered Jared Kushner and others on Hillary Clinton. That was number one. Number two, the statement on Air Force One. While we're. That adoption and it wasn't upset. Don mcgahn the reporting about, Don mcgahn, and they asked us Rosenstein to fight a special counsel. Okay. Was there any was there any collusion with Russia, to disrupt our election and our electoral process, was there any obstruction of Justice determined? Well, the report on the no, you don't get to say and I can quit Jim you don't you don't get to say that there's obstruction. When the attorney general, the officer legal counsel, the deputy attorney general who appointed baller when they all say doesn't rise to any level that would warrant any type of charge of obstruction of Justice. Now, the next question, do you care about obstruction of Justice? Do you think Hillary obstructed Justice when she deleted, subpoenaed, emails, and she bleep bleach bit clean the hard drive and had devices busted up and remove sim cards? You think that was obstruction of Justice, your lawyer that was? That was investigated. That was investigated was founded at didn't riceville evil. And do you believe, but do you believe that was a rigged investigation, because Peter Struck says, oh, under closed door. Testimony. Oh, lisa. Page says it was rigged, they laugh about it. They all said that Loretta Lynch tarmac Bill Clinton Lynch, and it's a matter, not a not a investigation that there was no way they said that she was ever going to do a real investigation. Now, did we find top secret and classified information on that private server and a mom and shop bathroom closet? Is that true has that been confirmed a handful of classified documents that were seen people with clear shoes me, use me is that legal to have any top secret classified? So it's illegal, so she committed a crime. We go to this week after week show. No, no. I'm asking. Did she commit a crime by having top secret and classified information on a private server so simple? Yes or no question. No. According to the FBI, I'm not asking according did. She is it against the law to have top secret classified information on a private server. It's, it's stout show. Okay. Stansel. That's hard evidence. We found classify. Wait a minute. We found classified top secret information on the server in the bathroom closet. Yes or no? The handful of Email CPS forget, the how many there were top secret and classified more classified on the server, correct. Well, they were helpful with see on my gosh. Are they on that private server in the closet? Yes or no? They were okay. The espionage act, eighteen USC, seven ninety three says that that is a crime a felony. Correct or not. Correct. I don't have the statute in front of me. Sean, the FBI investigated digital giving me spin since with people have not been prosecuted. It's cold description. Do you think what do you think if I deleted subpoenaed emails, thirty three thousand of them subpoenaed? And I cleaned up my server the way she did with bleach bit. And I busted up the devices, remove sim cards. When I be arrested. She didn't lead personally. It would not subject to. No, that's true. That's not true what you're saying. Well, they once they found they found some of them in Anthony Weiner, is laptop, and they weren't classified and top secret. They weren't destroyed. That's called. There's an intention there. It's to destroy the evidence. Jonathan this is what we need to guard against. And this is what I would, I would, you know, we'd like to hear Danielle guard against and, and a lot of the other liberals that are in media is that you cannot go when, when you seen investigative groups such as the molar group that is. Is politically charged to the level that they were you recruited far left, Democrats? The people at the top of the bureau are far left, I don't even want to call them Democrats. They're just far left, socialist firs. I'm concerned communists, even when we have investigator group like that you have to question everything that they have said and done. And when we look at what the crims did in the totality of the circumstances. We look at people actually committing felonies espionage, I believe collusion themselves with the Russians when they send somebody out to go build a dossier and communicate with Russians to gather and create fake evidence. These are things that we need to look at. And when you compare that to the stuff that they evidence that they brought up in the charges that they tried to bring up against the trumps, including Donald Trump junior, and general Flynn and the rest of these individuals in the Trump campaign. It even measure up, there was nothing that they could prove that they. Did because they were trying to create it as they go along. And that's the difference if we had a real if bar does what he says he's going to do. It's an open and shut case on and Daniel hope you see that because it is literally committed felony have evidence charge them. That's as far of a stretch as to be when it comes with the Clintons and the rest of these west is on the democratic side have done in a covered up as far as I'm concerned. All right, quick break more with the ever frustrating Danielle McLaughlin and Jonathan Gillam as we continue on a Horowitz at the bottom of the hour. Hey, listen, you know, my friends at the USCCA, they.

Unbelie Naggar wants the jail. Trump officials who won't comply with his subpoenas. Why are they going to pay for the attorneys in DC thousand dollars an hour for decent attorney, maybe eight hundred of you lucky six hundred if they give you a cut rate, but these people have all been interviewed axiom waters claims America's clamoring for impeachment. No now, Lindsey Graham is going to join us at the bottom of the half hour. He's going to be telling us where his. Investigators is going to be going and also the he believes is going to be a Democratic Party stampede stampede to impeach the president anyway here to sort through all the legal issues on all of this. We have Alan Dershowitz who professor Harvard, and he contributed an introduction to sky horse Publishing's edition of the MO Muller report. Greg Jarrett his bestseller the Russia hoax. I want to ask you both. Here's where I think we've got to go in this. We now have evidence that Hillary investigation was rigged. From the beginning. Even struck and page recognized such eighteen USC seven Ninety-three, the espionage act is clear that's the underlying crime the intent to take subpoenaed emails, delete thirty three thousand of them Leach bit your hard drive. Eliminate the evidence speed up your devices, remove sim cards that would be an intent to obstruct. I think we gotta make that one bucket number two. We gotta get into the whole FIS abuse. The inspector general away in on that was there fraud committed to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. We also have to get into the spying of the Trump campaign, Stefan helper who enlisted him at cetera. Then we need to get into the whole issue of why did we have three hundred and fifty percent increase in unmasking American citizens in twenty-six that's an important bucket. Then we've got to get the release of the FIS warned scanning avait information three o two's as we've been telling you five buckets there. Then we've got to get into the question of. Okay. Those people that tried to undo an election and bludgeoned president. When did they know that there was no collusion? And why didn't they investigate Hillary's dirty dossier, which the New York Times suggests this we could have been all disinformation create chaos from the beginning. We'll start with you professor Dershowitz white where do we go next. Well, I think the most important thing is the way in which the Pfizer court was misled we now know for certain that. The information provided to the Pfizer court in the X party. Application was incomplete. It was not the whole truth. It was a half truth and a half cruise is ally. And I think there should be an investigation conducted by the inspector general, apparently that's going on. But also by the FIS accorded self defies a court was misled, and I think there was a contempt of court committed by those a who submitted the application with that indicating the source and be failed to correct the FIS application once they got more information about the source and indeed sought renewables of the FIS application. So those are I think very important areas for any civil libertarian because remember finds a warrants can be issued against any of us. And if it can be done without any consequence based on misleading and incomplete information, then we're all victims. And so I think you start with anything that involves every American potentially victim of a violation of civil liberties that has to be the. First order of business. Do you think the president is right before I get to Greg? Professor, the president is right saying, you know, what you've had you four investigations, we're gonna fight everything. Now, it never never used executive privilege. He could have he could have prevented people from talking to motor. He could have fired Muller, by the way, I think you'll even agree could've done so legally under authority under article two without a doubt in the introduction to my book. I go through the whole obstruction of Justice argument, presented by Muller Muller turns out to be dead wrong on the law. He has some idea that if in fact, the president had decided to fire Muller indeed firing Colmey he thinks could be an obstruction of Justice. He just has little wrong, by the way on the Amazon reviews. Everybody's ganging up on me all the anti Trump. People are writing terrible reviews saying I never should have been allowed to do the introduction to the book because I'm objective, honest and nonpartisan so I urge any of you who read my. Action and who think differently right review saying my my introduction is objective. It's not I end by saying I would have written the same review the same introduction. If the shoe had been on the other foot if Hillary Clinton had been impeached improperly or been subject to an investigation improperly. I would have been defending her as well, I am not defending Trump on a partisan basis. I'm defending civil liberties and constitutional rights, Greg Jarrett. Well, I want to say I just ordered professors book, and I am shamelessly look forward to reading the obstruction of Justice. Why doesn't he just give us a free copy? I mean, we're friends. Review get a free copy you got deal. But, you know, this is why prosecutors should never comment on charge crimes fair to the uncharged person Muller went out of his way to smear Trump with the patina of a crime that he couldn't prove Muller didn't find sufficient evidence for an obstruction charge. If he had he would have said, so so what he does is he turned the law completely upside down, and he says, well, I couldn't prove the president didn't obstruct. You know, prosecutors around in the business of exoneration there in in the business of proving crimes based on evidence exam proven ab- Streit when Komi went after Hillary Clinton that way, we all objected, Democrats and Republicans allies, why is it different? When Muller goes after people who have not been charged and sets out non-criminal con. That he disagrees with that's not the proper function. It's Muller could not prove an obstruction crime. And he could not then he should have simply stated that he wasn't recommending any charges. Anything other than that is blatantly unfair. I agree. I agree. Let me let me ask you this Trump when his son to Trump is Trump, right? Not to cooperate any further considering there's been four separate conclusions and investigations on this. Well, you know, listen to his lawyer on this. I think that what would you advise ING he I would I would certainly advise them not to testify. My advice to him was don't don't pardon. Don't fire don't testify don't tweet he listened to three of them, but not the fourth. But right now, I would say it depends. If if you think the investigations by congress are improperly motivate and don't have a legitimate legislative purpose. You have no obligation not to raise your constitutional privileges. And remember executive privilege is designed to protect all Americans. Not just the president is designed to protect the president see from improper intrusion by the legislative or the judicial branch. And so it's there as part of our separation of powers and checks. And balances to protect all Americans. He's not just doing it in self serving way and Nadler now dealer is now taking the position. Well, you've waived the privilege because mcgann's spoke with the special counsel. No as special counsels and employees of the department of Justice. So you've got one branch of the department of Justice White House counsel talking to another branch of the executive. So it's not a waiver of privilege at all you can actually never wave executive privilege. It's been invoked by almost every president. I was George Washington who invoked it when we get back. I want both the a debate the question as to what we do with the Hillary Clinton question, and how far back who.
Donald Trump, House Judiciary Committee And White House discussed on The Afternoon News with Kitty O'Neal

"don mcgahn" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote
"And so I think there is a way that Muller could say I can't go to the judge. But you the grand jury if you feel that there is something that you want the congress. Do I can tell you that you have the power to go to him and that could happen without going through the G. Okay. That makes sense. That's good to know. Thanks for clarifying that I'm not I'm not positive on that. I mean, I haven't researched it to see if there is a a legal impediment. But it's certainly something. I would try. Yeah. Definitely agreed. Finally last thing I wanted to ask you about we all know, Michael Cohen is going to be testifying publicly congress February seventh and a lot of folks have been referring to him as the John dean of stupid Watergate. And I don't know how I feel about that. I mean, technically Cohen is a lawyer technically, and he will be publicly testifying to congress about the president. But I think that's where the similarities end for me to borrow a phrase. I know John dean and Cohen is no John dean. I was wondering given your expertise on Watergate Watergate, one as a prosecutor, do you think Cohen is really the modern day. John dean, I would have to agree with your assessment. I don't know Michael Kohn. I do know John dean and John dean was number one and extraordinary witness within extrordinary memory and a desire to completely come forward. And so he was a unique and wonderful opportunity for us to get the truth out. And when he testified the first time before the Senate, there was no knowledge that there was a taping system. He had no knowledge about that at all and testified completely truthfully. And then, of course, later found out that there were tapes and either those tapes were going to corroborate him or they were gonna. Czyz totally destroy his credibility. And as you know, they completely corroborate when he said on my twenty first I said, there was a cancer on the presidency. We subpoenaed that tape and sure enough that's exactly what it says. And every other tape that he talked about where he had a conversation with the president proved to be true. Yeah. I I would think maybe. And I know Don mcgahn Mcgann hasn't testified publicly. I I'd say he's closer to the John dean, he spent thirty hours with special counsel, and he is the White House counsel, which is different from personal lawyer as far as what your job is. And so I think that might be a closer comparison than than Cohen. Well, okay, I agree completely that Don Mcgann would be closer comparison because these were actions of the president, and he was in the White House with the president. Whereas Michael Kohn wasn't. But some of the potential crimes committed by the president now president. Int- we're committed when Michael Cohen was his lawyer. But I don't think when people say he's the Michael he's the John dean of this investigation. I don't think they're referring to the fact that there's a lawyer relationship. I think they're making the analogy that John dean was a devastating witness against the president. He had facts that he had knowledge he knew the ins and outs. And I think to some extent Michael Kohn knows the ins and outs of some of the business wrongdoing. I mean, we know, you know, the payoff there may be zoning violations. There may be a million other things that Michael Konno's knows about I think Weisselberg could be the John dean in terms of dramatic evidence against the president. We don't know who the John dean because when I say that I mean, who's the one who can really give us the information to details that will be grounds for act. Action that will prove a case to even the most loyal Trump's supporters. Yeah, I agree. A hundred percent with exactly what you're saying..
"don mcgahn" Discussed on KOMO
"Reality radio or a really great. We're talking real money. It's the only show you need to know to talk about your dough on the radio talking real money. I'm Don mcgahn along with Thomas Seacock over there at the other side of the connection. Not as long as not the other side of the wall. I'm okay. So yeah. Maybe we could build a really nice wall. A high end wall. I thought Trump was going to do he was going to do like a luxury wall. Put a big Trump on it like rooms with hotel rooms. A lot of people want to buy this. Yeah. Rent that out. Sure. That makes it says her little desert resort. Nice walkway on top. There's the Rio Grande never going to get the other side of that. But it sure looks good doesn't it? Yeah. Lovely shrubbery. Maybe two. To to two to level affect? Yeah. Very good. Eight five five nine three five talk. Can you? Tell we grew up in the seventies. Eight five five nine three five eight to five watching lot of now. Available on Netflix too. By the way, I know I love. I do. Yeah. I still do you know, they haven't aged a bit in my mind. Even though they're like crotchety old guys. Gosh. Yes. Yeah. Only one of the real main guys is dead. But the rest of them live on our on their close. Okay. Next. Stop for all of us. All right. Oh, really? Eight five five nine three five talk. Kathy your next welcome to talking real money. Hi, cathy. Hi, what's up? I'm a retired u. Maybe retired of the year and a half. Now, I live on my tension. Mysocialsecurity? Just fine. When I was working the pension plan that I was done we were able to indus- money, and what was called a self directed. Okay. I have. Absolutely. Yes. Ma'am. Yeah. This money sitting in a self directed account. I own some condominiums rental. What is he going to be a good move for me to take part of that stuff directed money pay off the mortgage? They both. Off like one of the mortgages. One of those. Patrick. What's the interest rate on the mortgage? The mortgage is. Yeah. Let's see I have some low there. Right around. Man, how long how long are you going to? I mean, these these condominiums or something that you like to own because they're providing you income. Not really providing the income. The rent's cover. The mortgage is not a lot more. And all of that. I'm ahead. Maybe a hundred. I ask why you own them. Then. Well, one of them I used to live in right? But why do you still own it? Well, why don't I mean, I guess our recommendation? Know what I would my advice just based on what you've told me, and that's without getting deeply into your situation. But if they're not turning a positive cash flow. Well, I'd sell them. Condos condos have generally been the some of the worst in the world. You've been getting. Condominiums especially after the crisis in two thousand eight two thousand nine we can't even get financing to buy them. I mean, you have to do all cash deals, and then you get those wonderful surprises called specialists. I don't even want to go there because we just got one of those on our condo. That's outrageous. If you ask me, why don't you sell it? This. This has. Yeah. Familiar ring to our household, Kathy. Because if you ask my wife, why don't we sell? She says I used to live there. I used to live in random. So I'm a financial perspective from a financial perspective. Owning those seems to make no sense from a financial perspective paying off those mortgages makes even less and taking liquid money that you've said. Away when you hang out. And when you take that out you're gonna pay tax on it. And then you're gonna pay off something where you don't have liquidity. No, I would not do that. I think that'd be poor poor financial move right now lifestyle issues. Notably different. We we tend to focus on the financial sense of decisions..
Don McGahn departs as White House counsel
"NBC news has confirmed that Don Mcgann is out as White House counsel today was done against the last day according to to White House officials. The New York Times which first reported the news says, Mr. Mcgann may have also caused more damage for Mr. Trump than any other White House official in the special counsel investigation. Mr. Mcgann has spent at least thirty hours with Mr. molars, investigators laying out how Mr. Trump tried to interfere with or quash the inquiry, including by trying to fire Mr. Muller himself in the summer of two thousand seventeen federal prosecutors met with President Trump's former personal or cone today at his attorney's office. A person familiar with the matter tells NBC news. Michael Cohen met with quote a group of state and federal law enforcement officials investigating various aspects of president, Donald Trump's family business and charitable organization according to CNN dot com. Yesterday, President Trump was. Asked about Michael Cohen's plea deal with federal prosecutors for the first time in an interview with the Associated Press the Associated Press, asked, president, quote, Cohen, testified under oath in federal court that you directed him to commit a crime. Did you, sir? Trump replied, totally false. It's totally false. The Associated Press followed up with. So he's lying under oath. President Trump replied. Oh, absolutely. He's lying. And Michael Cohen was a PR person who did small legal work, very small legal work. He represented me very little. It's a very low level in April one, Michael cones, home office and hotel room where raided by the FBI President Trump said this disgrace, it's frankly a real disgrace, say an attack on our country at a true sense. Join us. Now, John Holum national fares analyst for NBC news and MSNBC. He's co host and rooster of showtimes the circus and Mimi Roka's. Well, this former federal prosecutor in MSNBC legal contributor and John President Trump in in accusing Michael. Cone of being a liar tells the lie that Michael Cohen was just a small player in his operation who had very little to do with Donald Trump. Yes, barely knew him. I hard. I imagine that even has an opinion about my cone. I not sure he's ever heard of the man. He's never had any part of Donald Trump's life whatsoever. The only thing I think that's true. Lawrence of the things that Donald Trump said about Michael Cohen is that he did very little legal work for Donald Trump because it doesn't seem like he actually did very much legal work for Donald Trump because he's not really lawyer. He also didn't do much PR work. Although he did representing Trump in the press to some extent when he did for Donald Trump in the period of time the decade or so that he worked with Donald Trump not a little bit, but a lot every day for many hours every day. And if you've ever dealt with Donald Trump in those ten years or so, you knew the Michael Cohen was the guy you had to talk to to have any kind of interaction with Donald Trump? What he did was not legal work or PR work, but was business development work. He was the guy who made deals for Donald Trump. Here's the guy who cleaned up Donald Trump's problems. He was the right Donovan guy. He was the guy who went to Moscow and tried to make Trump Tower Moscow happen and to many other countries around the world. So is Trump telling the truth about the fact that. Clone was not much of a lawyer for him. Yes. Was is Donald Trump telling the truth about anything else related to Michael cones degree of involvement in his life? No, all of that is a grotesque live and vanity fair's reporting tonight about Michael Cohen despite having no formal cooperation agreement with the government Cohen has willingly assisted in provided information critical to several ongoing investigations according to sources familiar with the situation in a string of meetings that have exceeded more than fifty hours. Maybe Roca one is that tell you, that's a lot of time tells me he's got a lot of information and they are interested in hearing what he has to say. Everyone should understand though no one's going to take Michael Cohen's word at face value. They're not going to just write down what he says, and then you know, go in to the grand jury and based charges against anyone or any entity on that alone. They are
