"Motive is their opportunity. Well maybe there's opportunity given all of the shopping variables of the vote counts given the fact that you have these heavy mail in votes given the fact that we've never seen anything like this in terms of the mail in voting and the universal balloting never seen turn out like this at least not for a century so they've the motive and the opportunity and the question is do they have the means right so this happen right. Usually a crime is motive means opportunity. Did they have the motive means opportunity. We know they have the motive and we don't know about the means and the opportunity yet. I think what team trump is trying to show. Is they had the opportunity. But they really haven't shown the means and they have been shown that the actual crime occurred to the extent necessary to reverse the results of these elections thus far right but the mode of itself is the rationale for why you're seeing this vast political divide because if you believe that the other side is willing to cheat. Wouldn't you be suspicious that they did cheat and and so when people can treat everybody. Who's suspicious about the election as rube or an idiot. That seems to be missing the point to me and the point here is that you have spent years on end suggesting that you're willing to break any rule. You're willing to do anything in pursuit of donald trump. So why exactly would you suspect that. Republicans would suddenly by into him losing legitimately especially when the polls seem to be so wrong in so many states and especially when republicans over performed the polls everywhere you can understand on a personal level. I trump would look and say okay. Hold on republicans did really well across the country. I'm the only one who didn't do well. I'm most well-known republican in the country. Why now was a countervailing logic here. Which is that. Trump is most polarizing political figure of any of our lifetimes the donald trump has probably more haters than he does people who absolutely love him right. And so there's an alternative explanation. Which is that yes. You drove a lot of people to the polls but he also drove a lot of people to the polls against him but that is perfectly plausible as well but to understand why people are so invested in the election. Fight you have to understand. The gas lighting that has been going on for years and the moral consternation that has been directed at conservatives and republicans for years so to take an example. So barack obama now considered widely by the media as a moderate unifying president which is just insane because we are all old enough to remember barack obama being president he was not moderate and he was not unifying he was deeply divisive. I think in many ways the two thousand twelve election broke the country. Because i think the barack obama in two thousand four campaign as a moderate unifying figure that was his two thousand four. Dnc speech go back and watch it. It sounds more. Like george w bush even though he was campaigning for john kerry. It sounds more like george w bush than it does. Like barack obama circa two thousand ten go back to two thousand eight campaign and he was campaigning captain unity. Then in two thousand ten he started to realize that if he could cast all of his political opponents as villains and morality play where he was standing for a new racially multicultural system and his opponents were standing for big american racism and he was the person who's going to transform the system then he could still win election even though he had significant. Opposition wasn't doing a particularly good job and then he won in two thousand twelve on that basis that president that very very divisive president a president who routinely disparaged the constitution just. The constitution of the united states was a barrier to progress in the united states. A president who himself declared repeatedly that he did not have the constitutional power to simply not enforce immigration law. And then decided you know what i was gonna go ahead and do it anyway. And then declared he was not going to enforce immigration law with regards to deferred action for childhood arrivals the daca program now. Barack obama is going on his book. Tour this book includes a bunch of rip on the american system. It includes the basic idea that everyone who opposed him was racist but and yet he's being propped up by the media as somebody who has nothing but moral leisure demand to say exactly what he pleases. He is a person with unending moral certitude and he's being granted unlimited moral capital by the media. So here's barack. Obama saying to stephen colbert in absolute sycophant. He's no longer even pretend. Comedian stephen colbert. He's just an absolute democrats sycophant. That's all he does rolling. He's no different than brian. Stelter at this point here. Here's stephen colbert. With barack obama barack obama saying that he should have known that the constitution didn't have to be followed. What you did know that which is why you consistently violated. But it's this sort of stuff that drives republicans up wall to the point where they say. We don't trust the media. We don't trust the system designed democrats and we don't trust the media to talk about systems that are very often designed by democrats or loud by democrats here. Is barack obama again. Driving people up wall we found out from your successor that their whole bunch of stuff. You don't actually have to do people still do you. Look at it. And i didn't have to do any of that stuff. I know other things that he chucked out. You went oh only. I'd known i didn't have to do that. I think there's a lot. I bought respond to subpoenas follow. Follow the constitution. Yeah that's a drag okay. The idea that brock obama was a constitutional president. I mean stephen. Colbert is such damned joker. What a lion joker. Here's my goodness. The idea that the barack obama followed the constitution or had one ounce of anything beyond disdain for the constitution is a laughable joke and it drives people up a wall it drives you much. It drives me up a wall. I wrote a book about how barack obama did not follow the constitution over and over and over again. Barack obama suggesting that. I love that stephen. Colbert says to barack obama's face. Did you know that you didn't have to respond to subpoenas. He literally invoked executive privilege to stop eric holder from having to testify and turn over documents. Fast and furious..

"A bad guy. Or is he part of this ladies and gentlemen children of all ages to kind of serve certain t. I like you shocked yesterday. When all of a sudden attorney general bill barr appear. we had him on the back of milk cartons because he's been missing in action the same thing with christopher ray who was the head of the fbi missing in action. You had the trump team out there exposing all kinds of fraud exposing criminality at. Where's the fbi. Where's the doj missing in action. So when all of a sudden bill barred appeared yesterday l. that garner some attention and people's hopes and dreams. I mean this is a real nerve wracking time. I'm telling you were waiting for for the cracklins. The drop we're waiting for these things to get into core. We're looking for any type of Encouragement whatsoever we know that the mainstream media has is a bit against president trump for four years now fox has joined their ranks so when bill barr came out yesterday said today do we have not seen fraud on a scale that would have affected the election with the greatest like what lot now when president trump is. Dr bill barr. I gotta tell you when you taught him. As attorney general a most conservatives thought that this was a good thing andrea a with berg has great article chronicling the good things that bill barr has done at attorney general embargo seen as a straight shooter. Who had come out of retirement to help. Clean up the justice department. We're talking about the justice department that eric holder and loretta lynch had corrupted had weaponized. Jeff sessions had been helpless to repair feckless however in his two years in office. He's accomplished some excellent things but much less than we conservatives thought that he he would he would be able to do and yesterday when he came out and said we see nothing things went haywire. Things are a little bit haywire now. When news first broke you had are chuck. Schumer chuck schumer ran to the Ran to the to the microphone and he doubled down on that. Because like i said this is the kind of news depresses republicans that depresses the conservatives. Why not pile on. In dollar demands they previously had and also like you to respond to attorney general. Bill barr thing. There was no widespread fraud. Well in rich in response to attorney. General bill barr. I guess he's the next one to be fired since he now to says there's no fraud. Trump seems to fire anyone in that regard. Wow yeah yeah goals he's gonna get fired to the there have been firings going on now. We need to know that barmaid statement during an interview with the in the ap has no friend of a president trump the ap. I mean you wanna talk to me. That's the equivalent of going and talking to cnn and msnbc. not only are they never trumpers. I mean they're mean. I shouldn't say never trumpers. Because that would mean that they were there would be republicans. Know these guys are just rabbit will make them. That's really anti trump and the whole article. There's only one other teacher from from bar beside the one that i don't see any you know with widespread enough to overturn election. And it says there's been an assertion that would be a systemic fraud and that would be the claimed that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the dhs the deal. Jay have looked into that and so far. We haven't seen anything to substantiate that. Now that's amazing. That is an amazing claim. Because for the last few days out in pennsylvania right here in arizona in michigan we've been hearing incredible claims from some very accomplished people who are saying. Yeah you know what not only. Was there a systematic systemic fraud. But we're talking about counting ballots offshore. We're talking about you know our systems being open to our enemies. We're talking about foreign interference in the elections. What are you talking about attorney. General bill barr. And that's people went off the rails. My phone started blowing up. People like what's going on as it all art if you wanna follow a publication has just listing all of these all of these fraud stories that are coming out you need to go to the gateway pundit now. I said that with a grain of salt because we're going through a media shakeup right now. That is unprecedented. But so far i mean. We've got stories of truckloads of ballots arriving in arizona. Ten days after the vote counting seemingly ended. We've got biden ballots in michigan. That were scanned eight to ten times. We have over one hundred thousand. Wisconsin laid ballots backdated to third. We have dominion. We have michigan polishers watching dollars. Full abidin ballots arrive at four. Am we have to trailer. Full of Completed ballots went to pennsylvania for from pennsylvania to new york or one with one traveling on november the fourth. We got georgia. Election officials alleged a film destroying evidence. We've got michigan and georgia campaign. Operatives tampering with military ballots and yet we have the attorney general saying that the year and we hear nothing from the fbi. Now what the attorney. General he could have been quibbling With certain types of evidence whether or not it can be trusted however to date no one in the deal jay or the fbi that we know of has done anything. But here's where things get interesting because usually you know. Chuck schumer's writing president. Trump has something to say about that. President trump will take action so far president trump hasn't said anything. He has not brutally attacked the attorney. General he said nothing. Trump's legal team simply pointed out with all due respect The doj hasn't bothered yet to conduct an investigation. So what are we watching here. Well just like everything else will. We don't know. I'm going to try to hold off. Judging bar right now. I mean yesterday i was kinda thrown him under the bus because my my attitude is okay bars on board. Okay bye bye. He's just the rest of the other swamp cea but.

Trumpdates: Bolton vs. Mulvaney Goes to Court

"What is John John Bolton up to and what is Mick Mulvaney up to mick? Mulvaney tried to join a lawsuit brought by John. Bolton and another subpoenaed witness to the impeachment investigation the bulletin lawsuit is unprecedented. Unprecedented and unnecessary. It is asking a court to decide whether Bolton should comply with a congressional subpoena or whether he should follow Donald Trump's request that that he not just by John Bolton as a private citizen now lives beyond control of the president of the United States and there is no legal reason for him to evade that Subpoena Mick Mulvaney dropped his legal attempt today to join the Bolton Lawsuit After Bolton objected to Mick Mulvaney joining his lawsuit Mick Mulvaney says he will allow file lawsuits asking the same question to a judge in both cases. These are delaying tactics designed to slow down the impeachment investigation but chairman. Adam Schiff says they will not committee will not engage in a month's long legal pursuit to enforce the congressional subpoenas of these witnesses but the investigation investigation will take a negative inference from Mick Mulvaney as refusal to testify on the assumption that if Mick Mulvaney had something helpful to say about Donald Trump anything helpful to say about Donald Trump. He would testify and therefore his refusal to testify can be taken as a negative inference against president trump. The first news reports of John Bolton's memorable John Bolton's inevitable book appeared this weekend and viewers of this program new. The John Bolton was working on a book deal the day he left the trump White House since I announced it here on this program. I'm that night because it was wicked. Obvious reports indicate that John Bolton is getting a two million dollar advance from for his book from Simon and Schuster in order to get a book advanced like that the author has to tell the publisher. What the publisher is paying for what the publisher is getting? Therefore there there are people at Simon Schuster. Tonight in midtown Manhattan already know what John Bolton is refusing to tell the impeachment investigation instigation journey. Discussion is Chris. Liu who served as a senior White House aide to President Obama before that he was deputy chief counsel of the House Oversight Committee and John Holliman is back with us. Chris Lewis I want to get your reaction to this legal maneuver that we've never seen before I've got a correct congressional subpoena China. I'm going to bring a lawsuit to ask a judge what I do with it. I think it's fair to say none of this is on the level Lawrence. I mean this is the case of Mick Mulvaney wanting thing to avoid being held in contempt of Congress wanting to delay the proceedings but only willing to abide by the court's ruling if it goes in his favor and so what he's doing really is trying to serrate congressional oversight during my eight years on the House oversight committee part of it was during the Clinton administration we took depositions of senior Clinton administration aides aides. When I managed President Obama's Cabinet Eric holder testified on the hill fast and furious? Hillary Clinton testified about Benghazi. So this idea at the White House. Aides never testified is completely at odds with precedent. And if it's taken to its logical extreme it just completely wipes out Congress's ability to do any kind of oversight and let's not forget the most important point if there's any kind of executive privilege Mick Mulvaney. He's already waited. You'll recall. He stood up in that White House. Press briefing room. Any basically admitted that there was a quid pro quo so again as you correctly point out. If he had something good to say he would be out there saying right now John as we know. Oh two million dollar book advance for John Bolton means he's telling People Book Agent Book at Hers Pitching the material that he's is refusing to tell the Congress yes. I think it's likely that you and I know some of these people. If we went out with the proper implements we'd probably extract his permission them tonight. If we were hard hitting enough about it I think the question bold right now. It's tricky one. We assume let's assume the following through on the base of some of the testimony. Today it does seem as though Bolton was with those people those professionals who looked at this and said this is likely illegal it looks like golden waiting at various points in order to get that eight me released he he is. We all have for our views about job bulletins about politics ideology but it seems in this case. At least he recognize him the legal payroll that was in play here and try to do the right thing if for no other reason to save his own skin now. The question is what is economic interest in. There's two competing things here. Being a hero in this case is probably is economic interest in terms of selling books a a reading public. That thought. The did the right thing. Kim telling that story we'd probably be sell a lot of books. Unfortunately become a hero in the story requires them to testify and if he testifies it gives away some of the stuff that would be the news the book so he's got a very tricky thing to try to figure out here. How'd you land this plane? In the way that drives the most interest gives away some but not everything that he knows so the book is not drainable of its value by testimony the The book Chris quite predictably as I said the first night he when he left if the White House is scheduled for publication before the presidential election because of course if Donald Trump would lose the book value collapses. Right away But and so does a book like this to get cleared. The Way James Comey's book had to get cleared because he worked in the FBI. Since you you know since Bolton works on national security issues is there clearance process for that and can the trump administration simply refused to clear well Lawrence. There's actually two issues. One is the clearance issue shoe. If there's classified information information that might implicate classified information. That's in there. The other important thing was you'll recall trump administration officials apparently signed a non disclosure confidentiality agreement. which trump is selectively enforce or? Try To enforce against some folks including this anonymous book. That just came out and so so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I suspect John Bolton probably realizes on the non disclosure agreement that's not really enforceable it's never been enforceable against anybody and I know he's probably smart enough guy to actually at this point understand what is classified and what's not classified and we'll probably stayed abroad outlines when the book deal is introduced in court art in the Bolton Lawsuit. I'm sure the judge is going to have a a lot of even more reluctance to take the Bolton case serious. Yes that's probably right and look I think. Thank you know one of the things that Chris I think we are all under the impression that people signed these. NDA's has been claimed certainly beginning administration is through. The trump tried to get everyone to sign. I'm not sure everyone. When did side and Bolton came in relatively late to the administration so it's not clear that they were being that they were being as as rigorous about trying to get everyone to sign? NDA's and. I'm certain that John Bolton knows that it's the most the history of the world. So there's no I think that's the one is meaningless. I think the other one is our ultimate question for him in terms of the White House screening issue on on on talks about. If we're going to have to break it there. Chris Liu John Howland. Thank you both for joining

"eric holder" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod

"As the US attorney in in DC you prosecutor maybe the most was prominent corruption case that that has been seen in this town and that was Dan Rostenkowski guy new from Chicago probably three or four most powerful people in Washington someone the White House. You're in the Clinton administration dependent on Did you ever get any pressure from anywhere either from from the White House or the hill or the Department of Justice itself in that case no no pressure I mean I was cognizant of the fact that Rostenkowski was a big part of that unsuccessful effort to reform healthcare in you know the first lady was leading the Hillary Clinton was leading but the evidence against him was was compelling and I didn't think that there was any reason not to investigate and ultimately charged with the crimes that we had proven the Attorney General Janet Reno was supported and we never got. I certainly never got as attorney as US attorney here here in Washington. DC Any pressure from anybody not to bring the case now. I think I can safely say that the Clinton White House did not try to bring pressure on Janet Reno. I think she would have shared that with me at some point and so we were free to do as Justice Department's should be free to do bring cases on the basis of the facts and the law at the other end of this discussion you became deputy attorney general and there was an episode at the very end of that administration you're in charge of signing off on pardons from this from the Justice Department and then there was a fella named Mark Rich very wealthy guy who had flouted the laws over the embargo. Oh of Iran they had taken our hostages. There was an embargo and he fled and left the country and then waged a very long and expensive campaign including political donations send hiring President Clinton's former White House counsel to get a pardon and in the final hours of the administration he got that pardon and you signed off on that part and that became a real big story a scandal of sorts after the administration what happened at that that moment and this is this is going to be at a footnote in your very a long and and in distinguished biography you know. I'd like to think that people at the entirety of my career. There's a you know. He did a pretty good job but that doesn't mean that I was perfect and I made a mistake there. That's one that I blew. Why do you think were you under pressure to. Did you feel pressure to do that now. It was interesting. It would happen on the last night of the of the administration. I was going to be the acting attorney. General the next day we were dealing with the inauguration of President Bush and we were concerned about his safety. Along the route. The call came men and I didn't do what I should have done which was to interact with the woman on my staff who handled Paul thing. Pardon matters and say you know. What do you think what do you think about this. I just made a decision where I said you know. I'm not sure I'm kind of word. I didn't really kind of way in the way that that I should have. It's something we made a mistake. I blew it. I learned from that that mistake in question about it during my confirmation hearings and I think although it's not something I'm proud of I think it made me a better attorney general otherwise might have been you know you tweeted after last democratic debate that perhaps Democratic candidates should stay away from criticizing President Obama's legacy in some ways your legacy Byu. You served as attorney in general for six years you you were involved in in landmark reforms criminal justice reforms you you took a lead role in the debate debate over same sex marriage for which you'll be long remembered and then there were some controversies as well few weeks ago you said immigration which which was the focus of that discussion at the debate. was was some place where you thought some mistakes had been made. What were the mistakes that you thought were made on the issue of immigration during the Obama year well I think the way in which we were dealing with families who were were coming across and trying to keep families together these I guess we call them. Family detention centers something like that. Those were not working out quite well but I think the thing that people have to remember is that that we changed and we didn't keep those things in place and we move people as President Trump says the Obama administration was the were the ones who who started family separation. Now we kept families together but realised even keeping families together in on a detained basis was not something that was that was good for especially for the kids in in those families and so we moved to a different policy so mistakes were made and corrections were were put in place. He's you know I I think also some angst among the left about the fact that they do a hundreds of thousands of deportations a a year the administration was was was pretty robust in that area yeah but you know the emphasis there was on people who had criminal records people who pose a danger danger of a public safety risk. Those are the people who we emphasize as you know deporting. You know I think we have to have you know. Democrats have to understand stand. We do have to have border mean something well. What do you think about the proposal that many of the candidates embraced to decriminalize border crossings essentially turn it into a civil offense now. I don't think that's right. I mean the law that is on the books has been there for about one hundred years or so and to the extent that people are concerned about the ways in which people are being prosecuted for were crossing the border for economic reasons and a non violent way you realize that with the Justice Department in why is the Justice Department using its precious resources to make criminal cases there we had the ability to do that during the Obama years and we did not so I wouldn't want it. Send the wrong signal to to decriminalize it might send the wrong signal but it was certainly take a tool away from the Justice Department did WANNA use in an individual case and for some reason I know there's some trafficking human trafficking component. There might be some other reason why you want when we want to prosecute. You want to prosecute somebody but it is up to. I think the Justice Department to use use its discretion in an appropriate way. I don't think this administration's Justice Department is doing. Are you worried that issues like this will will blow up for the Democratic nominee in in two thousand and twenty decriminalize the border health it care for undocumented immigrants and so on I mean I I think that we need to look for solutions to the problems that we confront that are consistent with if who we are as a party consistent with democratic tradition but also the kinds of things that we're going to be able to deliver to people people don't believe in government because they promised so much and then we frequently don't deliver for them and I it doesn't mean that we shouldn't push you know for and you know like John Kennedy Go. We're GonNa go to the moon. You know how we can do that in ten years well we we did it you know and the whole range of things that I think we can do but we have to be realistic about the things that we offer to people as we are seeking yours they could be depicted in ways that would advantage president trump's acid yeah. I mean you know we're going to be it doesn't matter you know whatever it is that we propose. He's gotten some soda. The Democratic candidate is going to be labeled a socialist you know if it's Joe Biden. He'll recall the socialist. If it's Elizabeth Warren she'll be called a socialist and try to portray whoever the Democratic candidate candidate is out of touch touch with the with the American people and we don't need to give him stuff. That's going to help them in that regard but so I hope that will be just as I said realistic but consistent again with our our progressive principles. This president is at a in constant war with the media but ah the attorney generally Obama Administration prosecuted more leak cases than any other administration and and that was a controversy subpoenaed a phone records from the Associated Press threatened with prosecution a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist James Reisen in retrospect Would you do it the same way how you strike that balance between freedom of the press and the vital role of the press and national security well. I take lilly she within snowstorm threatening reisen with prosecution. What I said was that no reporter who was doing his or her job was ever go to jail for doing his or her job our focus the person who actually did the leaking itself the question was whether reisen would testify and and disclose it this was his source yeah and but I made clear you know if he decided for whatever reason not to share that information was not going to go to jail as a reporter had before in connection with the scooter libby process that was not my justice department was going to do these cases and you know we also understand. We're only talking about like five to six cases says it wasn't like we had oceans and ocean waves of these cases but given the electronic world in which we live. We now have a capacity to understand to figure out well. You know somebody leaked some information. You can look at their email trail and all of that something bigger out who actually the leaker was in a way that we couldn't before now having settled that. I thought that we needed to change the rules that we use to the procedures that we had in place to make these leak case determinations and and we change them the and one other critique that you you hear now is and I I hear it all the time why not prosecute the people who are responsible for the financial crisis the financiers fanciers who packaged up fraudulent mortgages and and and made a made off like bandits wh why not when out prosecute them and set an example yeah well. I mean I kind of level set here. First off we got record amounts of money from the banks when gauge inappropriate activities and then shape those settlements in such a way that the money went back to people who are actually harmed so that was one thing the other thing was if we could have brought these cases we would have brought them. I mean people have understand these are career making cases if you could have been the prosecutor bought the case of the United States versus the head the largest bank in the United States. That's a career making case and to the extent that we could have broncos cases we would have but the decision making so diffuse within but in the financial institutions that we didn't think we had a base the best. US attorneys that I had on those cases would have thought that we were GonNa Chart Art individuals and whole individuals. I'm lion could make we couldn't make the cases was was there ever any sense that the economy is so fragile we can't we shouldn't proceed yeah. There was one case early on that. I got a lot of grief about war I said in essence is that you know bank was too big and I actually was concerned at that point on the basis of what we were able to glean that if we did bring the criminal case against that financial institution given how fragile the economy was that it could have collateral impacts beyond just the the criminal case itself and for that reason that I reached out to our partners in the UK in Europe in Asia to make sure that ah we no longer had to face that dilemma and with those partnerships that we put in place that case come before me with those partnerships in place the result would.

Trump invokes executive privilege over entire Mueller report

"And we begin at the White House where the president today asserting executive privilege over special counsel, Robert Muller's full report on Russia's interference in the twenty sixteen election, all of this intensifying clash with congress over its investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. The move came just before the House Judiciary committee late this afternoon. Voting to hold of the attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress for failing to turn over Muller's unredacted report and underlying materials, which the panel head subpoenaed. We are covering all of this. And we start with the House Judiciary committee hearing, and it's chairman Jerry Nadler of New York. Today, we consider report recommending that the house of representatives hold attorney general William bar in contempt of congress for defying valid subpoena issued by this committee. This is not a step. We take lightly. It is the combination of nearly three months of requests discussions and to go. She aviation's with the department of Justice for the complete unredacted report by special counsel mother into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election along with the underlying evidence. I appreciate the fact that the department responded to the offer we made to them last week and met with us yesterday in the last minute effort to reach an accommodation. We heard the department out responded to them in good faith. And after always said and done we unfortunately were still unable to reach agreement, and we proceeded with our markup today is I've said before we remain ready and willing to consider any reasonable offer made by the department even. After today's vote. But if a letter I received late last night from the department is any indication I am concerned that the department is heading in the wrong direction. In response to our latest good faith over the department of Brunton announced that if we move forward today, it would ask President Trump to invoke what it refers to protective assertion of executive privilege on all of them subject. Are subpoenaed just minutes ago took that dramatic step. Size misapplying the doctrine of executive privilege since the White House waved these privileges long ago and the department seemed open to sharing these materials with us. Just yesterday. This decision represents a clear esscalation the Trump administration's blanket defiance of congress constitutionally mandated duties. I hope that the department will think better this last minute outburst and return to negotiations as Coequal branch of government. We must have access to the materials that we need to feel our constitutional responsibilities in a manner consistent with past precedent. This is information we are legally entitled to receive. We are constitutionally obligated to review. And I would remind the members that the mullahs report is no ordinary run in the middle document details significant is conduct involving the president, including his campaigns willingness and eagerness to accept help from a hostile foreign government numerous misstatements if not outright lies concerning these act those acts and eleven separate incidents of struck the behavior by the president that more than seven hundred former prosecutors have told us warrant criminal indictment. If congress is not entitled with full unredacted Muller report, one must wonder what document we would be entitled to exhausted negotiations with the department of Justice have unfortunately left us back where we begin with unprecedented obstruction by the ministration that has now announces intention to block all the Thames congressional oversight of the executive branch. It is our constitutional duty to respond. Let me be clear if we request we are requesting entirely. Within our legal rights receive, and is no different from what is been provided to congress on numerous occasions going back nearly century. But we do not need to go back and forth to find a precedent. As recently as the last congress under Republican control, the department produce more than eight hundred eighty thousand pages of sensitive investigative interiors pretending to its investigation of Hillary Clinton as well as balloonists other material relating to the rush investigation and other ongoing investigations that production included highly classified material notes. FBI interviews internal text messages law enforcement memoranda. With respect to grand jury information in past cases involving Gatien's of presidential misconduct or misconduct by other high-ranking. Public officials the department of Justice as a matter, of course, the permission of a court through at least relevant information to congress if not to the public notably. This include several cases that were not impeachment inquiries, including the investigation into former agriculture secretary, Mike Espy and the Iran country investigations as well as other investigations that were not governed by the independent counsel law. But no matter the fact that the law and history clearly support the release the congress of this kind of information the Trump administration has taken obstruction of congress to new heights. Unfortunately, the attorney general has been all too willing to support the president in this endeavor. I would also like to respond to the concerns often raised by my good friend. The ranking member. Yes, how can the committee hold the attorney general in contempt for merely complying with the laws on the books, and how can we hold him in contempt when I have refused an offer to allow me to see certain redacted portions of the report, the answer's simple. I we issued a valid subpoena for the full report. And all of the underlying evidence department is come nowhere close to satisfying obligations under that subpoena. Those comments by the chair of the House Judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler of New York, again, the final vote along party line vote twenty four to sixteen and at the conclusion of the hearing chairman Nadler telling reporters, the US what he calls facing a constitutional crisis over the mullahs report from the Wall Street Journal there is this quote, the dispute centers around the unredacted version of the mullahs report and the underlying evidence some of which the Justice department says by law cannot provide because in. In part. It involves grand jury testimony that is secret Democrats subpoena the material last month saying it was necessary for congress to independently examined the material and the basis for Mr. molars findings. The journal goes on to write quote at the Trump administration's abroad, refusal to cooperate with any oversight request from democratic committees elevating tensions between the two branches to levels unseen since events of the magnitude of President Bill Clinton's impeachment, the Iran contra arms scandal during the Reagan White House and Watergate a move that invokes executive privilege is all but certain to provoke a constitutional challenge in the courts more details at wsJcom more from today's hearing Doug Collins is the ranking member of the House Judiciary committee. Mr this. The folks watching this log continues last week ours you and the fellow members of Jewish Democrats to respect the history of this committee business accordingly. We still have across southern border still. Feeling property here. We are wasting another bible week legislating calendar against the majority's war against the administration. Today, we are meeting to consider a resolution to hold attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress. So let's take just a few moments and go through this. What is the justification for holding attorney general bar in contempt of congress for apps failed to abide by the special counsel regulation? No, he went above and beyond what the regulations far by transmitting the full report to congress with limited. Reductions could it be that the attorney general failed to accommodate the chairman's demands for information. No, he offered to let the chairman involve other democrat leaders review, the less redacted at the department of Justice, including a ninety nine point nine percent unredacted volume own strokes in an odd move for anyone demanding access to information. The chairman and the other elected Democrats giving access declined to view that report. Attorney general also volunteered to testify before this committee about the reports conclusions his role in sharing the report. And as we all witness, the democratic gangs force the attorney general to forego the schedule hearing last week on Monday just farm an offer to meet to discuss accommodations yesterday. They made a reasonable offer to avert this. And once again, they were rebuffed and the chairman the client, perhaps the end, the Democrats believe that there has been an unreasonable delay in the Justice farmers response to they're saying, no, that's not true. Either. In the chairman is moving to this contempt resolution at lightning speed. It has been less than twenty days since the chairman now subpoenaed documents from the Justice department when the oversight committee held Eric attorney general Eric Holder and content more than two hundred fifty days had passed between the subpoena and the committees vote to hold him in contempt more than four hundred and fifty days passed between the committee's initial request to the Justice department and the committee's contempt vote, dude Isra Democrats are moving more than ten times. Faster than oversight did with holder. They have moved from request to contempt vote in only forty three days. And yet the Justice department is still at the negotiating table waiting for the Democrats to arrive in good faith, while this rush without any valid legislative or administrative reason, we can only assume the Democrats that are led by the chairman have resolved to sully the Bill bars. Good name and reputation to accomplish to go. First Democrats are angry the special counsel report and did not produce the material or collusion's. They expected to pave their path teaching the president feel compelled remind everyone the report found offers to do so no one from the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with the Russian government, and you can't help. But notice the phrase Russian collusion has vanished from the democratic talking points and left a void in the narrative. The special counsel did not make a prosecutor determination structure in which was his job attorney general and a deputy attorney general did so according to their mandates law enforcement officials while giving no credence to the office of legal counsel. Opinion regarding that a sitting president as a result, they're angry their anger nations chief law enforcement officer and his dad had yelled acidy decide the didn't support charges for obstruction investigation into something. The president. Second Democrats are afraid of what your general will fund when he completes his own going review of abuses, the Justice, including how the Russian investigation began. Multiple news reports have suggested those conclusions could be explosive good in careers and could even lead to criminal prosecution rather than face that the Democrats resolve to neutralize Bill bar by attacking him in the office in his in his career. This is the first what a cynical mean-spirited counterproductive irresponsible staff. It is. Meanwhile, our economy urging unemployment amongst already groups historic low a recent Washington Post poll shows cratering support for impeachment, but Democrats have no plans, no purpose, and no viable legislative agenda beyond attacking visit ministration the house is more than four months into a democratic majority. How many bills passed by this committee have been signed into law chairman poor? You see reason I asked if you recognize the craving and insincere politics. It seemed to be yielding, no. No dividends for the American people. We've talked multiple occasions improved at last week's pharmaceutical market that I stand ready to work with you to promote solutions. I will not though become a bystander as we say, the attorney general, and this committee our democracy deserves better. Those comments from Republican Doug Collins of Georgia, the ranking member on the House Judiciary committee and on Twitter. The president wrote the following, quote, everyone wants to know who needs to be accountable because it took up to two years of our lives talking about the Russia involvement at proved no collusion and people want to trace it back to see how all of this happened treasonous hoax that the president at real Donald Trump. And at the White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about the president's use of executive privilege. Caroline, chairman Naylor says at the White House already waived executive privilege. He said the moment they reveal documents Muller, they waive the privilege that's black letter law. So how is the White House still claiming turning Adler would be a little? A bit more on the law. I'm not actually like understand better than he does. The attorney general is protecting information. Grand jury information confidential information had he cannot release the fact that the chairman knows that and continues to ignore it is absolutely absurd. What's not forget. This is the same guy who was to frayed to ask the attorney general questions himself if he can't do his job, and he can't understand basic rule of law and uphold it then he shouldn't be in

What are conservatives saying about Joe Biden's new video?

"So I looked at what Ed Morrissey had written about Russia. Hangover muller. Hangover said, hey, let's talk about that. But now knowing Ed knowing hot air knowing what he's doing. I just offer the curve ball of front and safe. Hi, welcome. It first of all have you caught the Joe Biden video this morning. I've got some of it. I just I I was kind of ripping through it right before I came on the air with we would probably come out interesting. Probably one of the more effective campaign videos that I've seen so far the ones that I've seen from other democratic candidates were sort of all over the place. At least one thing Trump. I, you know, and I'm just so disappointed, and I'm probably naive to be. I mean, I've I've tried to be a head of the curve on a lot of things and not be surprised by so many things. But I thought we would see Joe come in at his likable best with with some things to say about Trump, and we need to sort of point things in a different direction. And I've got a different view of immigration and a different view in the environment. And I just welcomed the opportunity to become your nominee, blah, blah, blah. I did not expect Trump is Hitler America is Germany in the nineteen thirties under him and only I can save you. And my shallow analysis is to be disappointed. I hate this. I wanted better. But I think you might be honest you called effective. And it probably is for exactly the audience that he's pitching to today's democrat party. Remember what he's probably got the centrist ready enhanced. Right. That's the analysis. That's what he's got to be looking at is that there isn't a lot of competition for the traditional Joe Biden democratic voters there. Everybody's pushing to the progressive so biting I think thinking I got those people just by jumping into the race. What I've got to do is be able to compete for the progressive activists against Kemba Harris, you know? Elizabeth Warren along with a lot of other zero percenters in yield. And so so that's tailoring. The message to to hit those progressive activists to to to take those voters away from that into claims sort of a consensus among all the sides of the Democratic Party. So I see the strategy there. I'm with you on that. I kind of thought that he'd be killer uncle Joe coming out of the gate to. But it doesn't surprise me that that he's seeing as the has the activist blood of the party at the moment. And that's what he's going for. Because the the danger is that by being the likable of jeweler guy that he gets tagged as being weak gets tagged as being unfit for the fight. And he's gotta show that he's willing to throw the sharp elbows. I don't know if it so much that or if it's just the fact that he's got to overcome the fact that. He's an old white guy. I think that's really the big issue. Right now is politics Democratic Party. And he's got to find a way to cut through that. And the one way to do that is to go after Trump. Listen, heavy mentioned identity politics on wanna get to your wonderful piece at the week dot com called the Muller war rages on I've got you and the gift of a little bit of time since identity politics does want so much of the democrat party a lot. A lot of women are having a lot of impact Coppola Harris has the the the double dip of women of color, which is such a shameful thing. Because she is is a smart and talented Makamba person. And yet in today's Democratic Party. It's all about the kind of of identity stuff that you mentioned. But here sitting here in Texas. I'm watching beta meltdown, but the more at least as interesting story is how unaccomplished Hispanic man like on Castro has crickets and tumbleweeds. Have you noticed? He is he conspicuous by his absence in any kind of discussion of. Early buzz. I actually a little surprised about that too. Because this is a name that's been popping up for quite a while. I mean, the Castro both Castro brothers have been talked about for at least three or four years maybe longer than that about being the the the index comers in the Democratic Party. And I'm wondering if. I'm wondering if it's just an issue of. Platform. I mean camera Harris comes from California, California's very blue state. It's very large state very important state in in the democratic primaries now because it comes early in the primaries it didn't use to come early in the primaries. I'm wondering if that if it is media situation when you're in the Senate, it's easier to get media attention to when you're in the house, or when you're mayor of a city in Texas. So the Castro brothers haven't really been. Media dominant, right? See them around the media. Has something to do with it. And then again, you get Kirstin Jill, right? Who also comes from it, very important democratic state, very blue state, highly popular state and she's zero percent to. So it's see I think that's the very good analysis. Right. Let's go to what I actually wanted you on the show for but in today's fast moving world. Let's not part company before we talked about your piece, headlined, the Muller war rages on what is your basic feces there on how Democrats are living in post Muller, America. I think that they can't let it go. And I think that they're going to find the more that they can't let go the more. They're gonna disconnect from voters on this. But clearly what they wanna do is they want to reconstitute the mullahs report under their own steam. And and so they're going to try to do what you especially when it comes to obstruction of Justice. I think that they've given up on the Russia collusion thing. Adam Schiff aside? I think that kind of given up on the Russia collusion. Hardly anything about that really since bars report. But certainly since the mullahs report came out, and so I think it's going to focus on instruction as an impeachable offense. And what they wanna do is. They wanna drag all the different witnesses that Muller talked to during the investigation and Adam testify before congress, so they can try their own conclusions rather than Muller's conclusions are William bars conclusions. I I don't think the administration's gonna sit for that second work. And Secondly, I don't think people really care as much as Democrats things they do about. This is something that I think most people felt the Miller report settled and without the without an underlying crime of Russian collusion that really concerned about whether or not Donald Trump head temper tantrums over this looks something else and how it will play than the next chapter of President Trump's combativeness well seem to be to resist every subpoena that comes his way in order to pile on impost Muller, America. Everybody knows my dog knows that these are punitive subpoenas because they can't let it goes you've described. But there's something about resisting subpoenas that have. It's it's it's dicey. It's risky has that gonna play. You're right about this. And in fact, I think is Jonathan swan Mike Allen, it actually has a pretty decent piece about this today is that you can the White House can simply stall this thing forever by refusing cooperate with subpoenas and congress can issue citations all day. But the Justice department isn't going to force that, and if you wanna get example of just look at Eric Holder with fast and furious. They stonewalled it over executive privilege. The Obama technically wasn't even involved in this discussions, and they didn't settle it until Donald Trump came into office where they Eric Holder. Finally turned over some of the documents that they've been looking for so, yeah, you can still this thing forever. And the question of whether does your political damage, it it certainly didn't with Obama Obama got reelected, even though Eric Holder was found in contempt over operation fast and furious, and he was very popular throughout his presidency. Even though he was stolen that investigation. And in this case. Factor for both sides is that they waived executive privilege for more. So Muller is interviewing all these people. Executive privilege now Democrats are arguing look that the precedent. That means that you that. It's it's waved forever. And that's a legal question. It's certainly going to be. Have to be nailed down. However, the Trump administration can turn around and say, look, we cooperated with the independent counsel cooperated with the guy that we didn't like, and we all these people already talked to investigators, and they have a report a full report that tells them exactly what they found reductions part of the report, and I think that's Trump administration. Can't successfully argue that they cooperated so much during the special counsel investigation that it is illegitimate attempt at congress to try to reconstitute that into a kangaroo court, and they're simply not going to cooperate with necessarily gonna hurt

"You know, you look at what would Franklin Roosevelt did in those first one hundred days in what the new deal, what was all about in that in some ways, I think is his government at its best. You know, you say he's just economic stuff. But I mean, you they, you know, that administration that president change this nation in a whole variety of ways, and we still have that capacity. We've lost faith in you know, you start. So I think what the inauguration of Ronald Reagan problem is not the people problems government. We've lost faith in our governing capacities. And I think that we need to, you know, be a little bolder. We need to to think big things, you know, when it comes to climate changing. We'll how we can deal with this problem how about whom shot, you know, think of climate as a moon shot in deal with them climate the same time that would dealing with reforming our political system. We can do all of these things we have that we have the capacity. So I know we are at a time here. But I want to ask you before you go the question that is he's tend the podcasts, which is what are three books. You've read over the years that have influenced you that you would recommend to the I would I share with the audience three books that I've read most recently one is an unfinished life by Robert Dalek talks about one of my heroes. John Kennedy, and you know, his life his impact on the nation and from the title, you know, the the promise that was lost by his untimely death, the collected poems of Langston Hughes my favorite poet. And my wife gave me that book. For christmas. And I've just been kind of going through that. It's a in reaffirmed in me, this the belief that he is in some ways, I think America, America's poet laureate in the nineteen forty four by j Winnick a really good book that examines the year nineteen forty four and really looks at what Roosevelt was doing. Then it's really kind of interesting to see how the interaction between the press and the and the president at that time, but more importantly, talks about how knowledge of the holocaust was more widespread in the United States. You know, people have this. We work under this belief that American troops Soviet troops discovered. These camps and were were shocked, and, you know, no, one knew about them before that didn't he makes it very convincing case that certainly the American government and the American people knew about this to a much greater degree. Then we I think have been willing to women willing to. Except so those are three books that I read and reading vino nail there. I would recommend everyone Eric called. Thank you very much.

"You'll know that one of my obsessions of late has been whether America still is democracy. Whether it ever has been whether it is one whether it should be one. But in particular, how some of the distortions in the system ranging from the electoral college to the way geography becomes representation to gerrymandering to the filibuster. How they're ending up stacking the political deck, they're making outcomes legitimate. And how increasingly there is a divide between Democratic Party wants a more small d democratic America and a Republican party that sees more democracy as a threat to its interests. And that to me is a pretty dangerous space someone who's work. I've been interested in space is Eric holder's or cold. Or course was the attorney general under President Barack Obama the first African American attorney general since leaving the White House. He has founded and chairs the national democratic redistricting committee, and that's become not just the focus of his political work. But also the focus of much of President Obama's post-presidential political work. He actually recently merged organizing for America into this project. And I think the the reason for it is is a growing sense that if you don't get some the fundamental questions of elections, right and representation right than all the other policy you care about climate change healthcare economy. Whatever it is it doesn't work out. I it's not going to be there. So I wanted to hold on the show to talk about that work to talk about what motivates it what it's chances are what the strategies he's trying to employ are what he thinks if some of the counter arguments to it and also to think a little bit more broadly about other parts of his legacy and his role some of the speeches. He gave on race in the Obama era. Some the work he did or did not do in terms of prosecuting financial crimes during the financial crisis or prosecuting bankers. I should say during. The financial crisis is a pretty interesting conversation. Appreciate him taking the time to do it. So as you can Email me at Klein show at vox dot com. Here is Eric Holder, Eric Holder, welcome to the podcast going to be here. Thanks for having me comment recently about what you're trying to do that struck me as really telling you you call your work apart effort at good government kit. Can you talk a bit about what you mean by that? Yeah. I think the reality is that the two parties stand on different sides of this electoral fairness issue, and for us to get as a nation back to the place where I think we need to be Ted just affair Aleppo system one that is you know, gives the people the opportunity to truly express their views. The Democratic Party has to take on the Republican party and fight for that fairness, but I always say as I talked to people, but we're trying to do with the national democratic redistricting committee is not to come up with a system gerrymanders four dead.

"Former attorney general Eric Holder reacted on Twitter to the confirmation of judge Brett Cavanaugh to this prem- court by questioning the court's legitimacy and also saying that the court needs to regain the nation's trust. Kerry, Severino is what the judicial confirmation network, and she told Fox News. This is exactly what the Democrats have been trying to do too Cavanaugh all along that's been their strategy all along I think they wanted to delay the controversy to deny him confirmation. If he could delay it if they couldn't and then de-legitimize it think they're they're just. Hoping to find some way to. Push back against what what is. Now, a constitutionalists majority said they're not gonna give them every every decision they want. So they're going to try to undercut legit.
