"What they've done this week will will carry on in the weeks to come. Yeah finally because this is just the breaking latest justice department warned states about unusual trump inspired. Audits i've been wondering about this forever. How any of this is legal. trump supporting politicians states around the country consider conducting conspiratorially orally quote unquote audits of the twenty. Twenty election returns. The justice department warned yesterday. Federal law requires states to maintain possession over direct supervision over election records that some states are handing over to ill-prepared contractors the doj interprets. The civil rights act required that covered elections records be retained. either physically by election officials. themselves are under direct administration supervision. This has been my question. Your excellence is what why. How is this legal. What they're allowing to happen in arizona. Where now they ever asked to replace all their election equipment. It's how are you allowed to take election actual ballots to some. I don't know cabin in montana literally. Yeah yeah i think again. You know that that letter that warning letter. is an appropriate. I skipped because the reality the conducting of these fraud. It's and that's exactly what they offer fraud. It's you know it's interesting in arizona. You're gonna do thing but you only look at the place where you see the greatest number of democrats. Well wait a minute. What about going if you're going to do an audit. Why don't you do it state wide but how about. Let's not do it at all. Given the fact that all of these things have been reviewed certified And no-one found any degree of any any degree of fraud. So i think you have the this letter. This warning is good first steps but then it's got to be followed up and to the extent that you see replicated what happened in arizona. You know in in other states. The justice department's gotta look in quiver and figure out what arrows that it has filing civil suits bringing regulatory action to stop them from doing that was puts at risk You know the integrity of the process not only in the minds. The american people but also physically. Because what you just said is really important. You know you turn over these machines. And now you've seen in pennsylvania. I guess arizona. They're going to have to spend taxpayer money to replace these machines. These idiots in in in in arizona. You know Have been had access to and as a result of potentially uncontaminated fan so for any number of reasons We have gotta stop. Stop this nothing. This is all to try to satisfy you know. The latest version of the big lie has absolutely no basis. in fact we've got be extremely aggressive and he'll be unafraid. The republicans say. Oh you politicizing this stuff. I was gonna say a battle. Bs you know. We're not with the sizing anything. All we're doing is standing for democracy and for a fair system. You guys are the ones who are afraid of the voters. They don't think they can win in fair elections and sold it to do whatever they can to hold onto the power that they've illegitimately got. I could have really used the publicity. If you'd use the whole word your highness. But i will but please come back. Let's do this again. I'll be less nervous. I swear your excellency. I thought we agreed it was going to be your hide.

"All that mean. Because i i sometimes your excellency. Attorney mr a general feel like you know democrats disarm because we do want general and fairness where republicans will obviously go to any lengths. We'll go any links to cheat to win. And it feels like i've heard about jerry mentoring. In general that in some places democrats have just said ona. We're gonna leave it up to a fair non-partisan we're republicans aren't fighting the same way on gerrymandering are can you explain that to us. Yeah they're not fighting the the same way. I mean just kind of some basic stuff. I mean we do. The census every ten years after the census a year or so So after we then redraw the legislative lines for state legislatures as well as the united states house of representatives and what the republicans did in twenty eleven Princeton university did a study and said it was the worst gerrymandering of the past half century. And that essentially mean that you create these safe districts so that republicans simply cannot be. You can turn out huge numbers of democrats but because of the way in which the lines are drawn. Republicans are in these safe seats. Which means that. They're not concerned about a general election. They're concerned about a primary challenge. And that drives them. Further and further to the right and you end up with legislatures both at the state level and the united states house of representatives that do things that are inconsistent with the desires of the people that these folks are supposed to supposed to represent. And so yeah you're right you know people asked me. Well what is gerrymandering bottomline. Gerrymandering is cheating and they have indicated that is republicans upset in their own words. They wanted their term. They want secure a decade of power. And they want to do so by suppressing the vote but also by redrawing the line in such a way that they assure themselves general election victories. And the notion that you know. Democrats are disarming by fighting for fairness. I think is just doesn't quite get at it because the reality is if the process is fair. Democrats and progressives will do just fine. We are actually fighting for in fighting for fairness. We're fighting for a process that will lead to an increased number of democrats recipes at the state level as well as in the united states representatives. We don't have gerrymander. I mean that really is the bottom line. We don't have to dream and and when they do we've got to be extremely forceful and fight them in the courts in every other way that we possibly can to make sure that there are gerrymandering. Attempts are not successful. And i know that's what because some of them have come out and said it right. The gerrymandering is gonna help us win. You know in two thousand twenty two. I just automatically. I think ronnie represents what ronnie jackson has said that so talk to us about. I know you waited just hours. After the census bureau re released new apportionment figures to file the first lawsuits of this. This decades redistricting process corrective preview. It's it's they say it's going to be the most litigated remapping american history. So talk to us about that. Yeah yeah i mean you're into burtless be honest here in in twenty eleven Republicans had a thing called project read map and they focused on redistricting and they maintained their power as a result of that effort in two thousand eleven. Twelve the course of this decade You know twenty twelve. The first time that the elections after that That that unbelievable gerrymandering efforts democrats over one point. Two million more votes for the united states house of representatives republicans did and had a thirty three deficit even though we had a million more votes..

"The legal industry remains one of the least diverse professions in america. It's now been over a year since. George floyd murder and the wave of soul-searching that followed and still sixteen of the nation's largest law firms. Nine of which are on the am law two hundred. According to a report from the american lawyer with that in mind we decided to put together an extended cut of my january interview. With former attorney general eric holder now a partner with the washington. Dc based firm covington and burling. The interview was part of our black lawyer. Speak series which is still available. Just search for uncommon law. Wherever you get your podcasts. Thank you and now my interview with eric holder. A as i said before the majority of this podcast series has been focused on issues of diversity and inclusion as they relate to big law firms or the recruitment pipeline but is diversity also topic for the judiciary. And how would you say it's similar or different to what's going on at firms. Well i think diversity is always a good thing. I think that's one of the strengths of our nation. We are truly a nation of immigrants. I think we've tended to forget that. So are immigrant past. I think is a strength and it is the foundation for the diverse present in the diverse future that i think we should have if you take america and all of its constituent parts and involve people from different backgrounds from diverse backgrounds whether racial gender geographic. You end up with the best efforts. You you you end up with the best of who we are as a nation and so it matters not only four when you see inc's Did you see in the military it also matters in all facets of our life and i think that is true of the judicial branch judicial branches. Well at the firm level. I think this issue often gets folded into a business case model. We can provide a better service for clients if we assemble diverse teens. Is that the right way to frame the issue for the judiciary as well. That diverse benches can produce better legal opinions or results. Or are there other reasons. Yeah i think people you know judges are supposed to decide things only on the basis of the facts and the law but we'd be naive to believe that people don't bring their life experiences to the job. I was a judge for for five years. And i dare say that my experiences as an african american man gave me slightly different perspectives than some of my My white colleagues. And i think that that's a good thing to have a variety of people from different backgrounds. Different life experiences. You know you really pretty solitary life. As a judge people tend to think will join only deciding cases the basis of the facts and the evidence in front of him or her. But the reality is that Judges interact with one another in. We used to at the dc superior. Court where i was a judge. We had a lunch room and that was a great meeting. Place for judges and judges could only sit with judges a designated table and we would frequently talk about cases that we were considering it was really interesting to hear the different perspectives. That different judges had presented with the same facts understanding what the law actually was and the different ways in which they would view a case. And so i think. In those interactions people sensitized to different views sensitized to different life experiences and i think it made us better made. It made us better judges than if we were all. You know from a very homogeneous background. And so i think there is always value to be found in diversity and i don't think that's a political statement. I think we've tended to politicize something that i think we can scientifically prove. It certainly helps in business. I have to think that when it comes to decision making on the bench. Just as i found with regard to decision making in the executive branch Having a diverse set of people around me to to share their views to share their recommendations made me a better decision maker. Both as attorney general. I think as a judge over the last four years. The trump administration has moved with remarkable speed to appoint judges the last count. I saw was one hundred and seventy four district court confirmations. Fifty four appeals court judges and of course three supreme court justices many progressive groups have also noted that the judges also stand out for their overall lack of diversity at the district court level. Only seventeen percent were non white which compares to thirty seven percent under your old boss. President obama and the appeals court level. Trump made fifty four appointments without a single black judge. The first the first president since nixon to do that so i just wonder how would you rate the track record of the trump administration here. Well you know we were on an arc Starting at the end of the reagan administration until the beginning of the trump administration. The federal bench was becoming more diverse. If you look at the appointments that trump made they are eighty-five percent white. Seventy six percent men it's You know the least diverse group of federal judges appointments of to federal judgeships until since Ronald reagan trump's appointments have made the federal judiciary less diverse at a time when the nation is becoming more diverse We're on track now while. Say you know america's going to be will not have a white majority by two thousand fifty nails moved. I think to twenty forty-three increased numbers of people of color. The courts don't have their chief weapon. The thing that makes courts effective is their perception of them being legitimate by the population the courts and studies have shown that people tend to believe in institutions in companies that reflect their world and again this is a nation that is increasingly becoming more diverse. There's becoming more brown and to have an administration kind of almost run counter to these demographic changes these demographic trends which are inevitable. Kind of almost like you know. These are going to happen. To kind of try to turn the clock back potentially rob's courts of that that legitimacy the courts now are aside from the military among the most trusted institutions in our in our society. And you put it risk you put at risk that that sense of legitimacy if people look at the courts and see judges that don't reflect what what the nation looks like. you know. it doesn't mean that you have to have precise numbers that actually totally reflect that which the way in which the nation is constructed but some sense that they are roughly in tune will be something that will As i said keep the courts as as being legitimate. You mentioned President reagan who appointed you to the dc superior court. of course. Everyone remembers ronald reagan for his supreme court appointments the first female justice the first italian american justice which was actually a big deal at the time. But when you look at his two terms in total that also wasn't a very diverse group of judges. So i wonder what.

Trump's tax returns and related records turned over to New York district attorney

"I want to move on and talk a little bit about the tax issue and the tax returns. The court ruling could be handed over to the state of New York and and Cyrus Vance, the A G o. It was the prosecutor in this case. Looking into the President. Trump has taxes, his finances, etcetera, etcetera. You're working on that case. Look, I don't know anything about it. I've never seen his tax returns. But from knowing how businesses are run, I doubt there would ever be a billionaire, or frankly, any wealthy person whose taxes would look good. Unless there's a W two and unless somebody's an employee, and unless there are no no deductions available, I would imagine it would be more complicated than the average person's tax returns. Number one and number two. I would imagine that the president Then private citizen, Donald Trump probably hired the best accountants and lawyers available and they were the ones that filled out the taxes and not him. Well, I could tell you this I mean, 45th president. United States did not go down to meet with the local enough No disrespect, Agent or block. Actually, they do a lot of work, but he didn't go down to the local agent are blocking. Sit down and say here, my W two than he lets on my tax return. You're actually corrected. Tax returns are from a business and from his personal Work, which includes media real estate. Real estate tax returns are complicated by nature. He had expert CPS. He had expert tax counsel that prepared the returns. I'm not concerned about the returns we fought, we fought it. During while he was president. We did not think it was appropriate. To be able to seek those records. At least not unless they could show a special height. Need to justice is actually four justices would have agreed with us on height need. I suspected we had Amy Barrett. Now she probably would have to. I don't know that But it wouldn't matter because now the 45th president is the former president. But Come out strategy standpoint, I'm not gonna discuss trial strategy, and I don't think these are going to trial but from a litigation strategy or case strategy when you defend tax cases used the tax returns to defend your case. So this is not complicated. The tax returns may be complicated, but this is not a complicated defense. You know, the president does make a point. I mean, I'm not sure if you followed Merrick Garland's hearing yesterday, but he e mean seemed like he didn't know never picked up a newspaper to may and didn't knows much about anything and wasn't even willing to commit to keep in the dorm. Investigation. Ongoing. We now have a smoking gun email appear. James committed Jim Clapper and in that, he acknowledged, And this was the day that he signed the sex and second Fiza application. Is the first renewal application subsequently signed a third application three of the four and admitted that he was not able to verify The veracity and truthfulness of what we now know is the bunk, which is Hillary's bought and paid for dirty. Russian disinformation dossier, which raises the question of fraud before a FISA court in my mind that seems like a slam dunk. Am I wrong? No, I think I think you're right. I think Merrick Garland has a as a judge. It's a good reputation and former Justice Department official as well. I'm sure he's going to get confirmed. Hopefully, he will apply the law to the fax is that sky is that kind of reputation? He's not an Eric holder in my view at all and again, I think that this is Look, when you have an election go the way it went, however, it went there. The fact is they get to pick their nominees. And while there's already been some objections on others, I don't expect to be much objection. There will be a party line. Objection, but I don't think will be overwhelming. Yeah. You know all these legal issues that the president has dealt with the weed? You know, the president uses the term witch hunt in so many different ways. Look at what this country was dragged through. For three years. You were you were part of following this entire Russian witch hunt. You were involved in everything involving you. You lived for three years. You You lived the first impeachment trial. You know when a quid pro quo when it was only one fact witness Only one it was all based on not even a real whistle blower. But I hear, say, whistle blower, non whistle blower, and, you know everyone that testified was either an opinion witness. Or hearsay witness and nobody had any facts and the only real the only true witness said No, he didn't want to quit port pro or quo. Um at all. He said he wants nothing. He wants to make sure they're not gonna be corrupt and take that to the next level is thin. You got Joe bragging on tape that he leveraged a billion taxpayer dollars so they'd fire a prosecutor. That was investigating his son being paid millions with no experience. Yeah, well, look, I think the fact is that we beat back Bob Mueller. We beat back the first impeachment. We had good success and a lot of the Supreme Court cases. And the second impeachment, which we did not participate. And although we filed a brief with the Senate on the legality issue of whether you can teach the president no longer in office, which we took the position you cannot The president won these battles I He will win these other battles that he's as right now. But look they're trying to. I think it's pretty clear that the moves here are to try to disable him, so to speak. From being able to run again,

Michael Eric Dyson Explains Why 'Economic Recovery Should Be Targeted Toward Have Nots'

"Talk about wealth and income inequality disproportionately affecting people of color and should the economic recovery measures be targeted therefore to these people and if so, how can that be the tough one? Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

Fired Tyson manager defends COVID-19 bets as morale booster

"Earlier we shared a story involving the waterloo tyson meat packing plant and how it's facing wrongful. Death lawsuits from the family members of employees who died as a result of contracting corona virus. Well seven managers at that plant have been fired and one of them is speaking out because he thinks it's important for everyone to know that they're not bad people there actually great people who were just trying to make the work environment fun especially when they were taking bets on how many of their employees would get sick by contracting corona virus so former tyson manager don merged mersch brock said managers conducted the office pool last spring within minutes following mass testing of the plants. Roughly twenty eight hundred workers county officials said last may that more than one thousand workers tested positive for the virus which hospitalized several and killed at least six now. The family members of four of the employees who had died are suing in wrongful death suits and merce brock says. No i mean we're not again. We're not bad people. we're just trying to boost morale. This is exact quote he tells the associated press. it was a group of exhausted supervisors. That had worked so hard and so smart to solve many unsolvable problems. It was simply something fun. Kind of a morale boost for having put forth an incredible effort. There was never any malicious intent. It was never meant to disparage anyone and just to give you some more details on what this pool entailed again. It was a pool among managers at this meat packing plant in waterloo iowa. The office pool involve roughly fifty dollars in cash which went to the winner who picked the correct percentage of workers testing positive for the virus. He also added that. Those involved didn't believe the pool violated company policy and that plants. Positively and the plants positivity rate would be lower than the community rate due to their mitigation efforts. So let me just quickly mentioned with. The mitigation efforts were Based on the allegations these lawsuits there were none. The employees are alleging that they were told by their employers to ignore any symptoms that they may have as a result of contracting corona virus They were pressured to continue working. And they were of course packed into tight quarters as they were working with no social distancing and again the allegations include the fact. They didn't provide protective gear like masks to prevent contracting the virus. So those are the mitigation efforts that this former manager who's been fired from tyson wants to point to so guys. I don't want you to miss something really important in this story Which is a tyson china. Whitewash what's happening here by blaming the managers so it doesn't mean the managers weren't guilty of and i i mean i don't mean that in a legal sense i just mean in a sense of moral culpability. No you should not bet on. How many workers are going to get sick by the way it turns out. The crack number was a thousand thousand of their workers. Got corona virus. Six died so four of the deceased family. Members are suing. Now and so tight. That manager says something abhorrent about how oh just boosting morale talking about how the workers are gonna die. How many of them are gonna get sick spot for us managers. I don't think that's fun and i. If that's what boosts morale for managers that's pretty sick having said that the real culpable people here is is the company because that measure says look they told us solve this unsolvable problem and that he's right they say okay don't take precautions Shoves all back into a building where we know. They're likely to get corona virus and then afterwards will blame you guys For not getting enough production and having too many people get sick but wait a minute was executives decisions not even the managers but executives higher in the company that made that decision so are they more culpable absolutely and so in this particular case. What do they do. And this is what drives me crazy again about the press. They hire former attorney. General eric holder to do a whitewashing effort. And he says yes. The managers are guilty but the company's fine what they paid them to say that he's a lawyer i get it. He has a job. His job is to help companies avoid lawsuits etc so holders during his job but but the press should not give any weight to the fact that he's a former attorney general he was hired a whitewash he whitewashed and the and they make. It all. Seem like only the manager's fault. no it's in this case. It's tyson spalte. Forgiving them can manage irs shoved them back in their. Don't take the precautions. The only thing that matters the bottom line and then go. Oh golly gee they made a bet. I can't believe they did that. It's only therefore and not our fault. Nonsense

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 860AM The Answer

"News, America, a lot happened overnight, primarily, the house of representatives run by the Democrats, of course, is likely to hold William bar in Wilbur Ross in contempt. After embar Wilbur Ross showed contempt for their demands for documents. Now this might sound and echo in your head might ring a bell that you've heard before. Yes. Eric Holder when he was the attorney general refused. The house, the man for documents for the fast and furious scandal. And what happened? Nothing. Although it's on the front page of every newspaper. It is not on the front page of business paper, I'm reading the Washington Post column. And I'm just looking to see if Eric Holder is mentioned in it because let's see here. No, no, no, no. Eric Holder in here at all. Meaning in other words, the idea that contempt having any teeth that's been dead for a long time. Eric Holder kill it. And I think bar, the Honey badger Bill, the Honey badger bar would've cared more if it had already been trashed by colder, but when enormous broken enormous broken Harry Reid. The Federal Reserve. Looks like they're going to cut rates Mexico in the US have made progress toward -verting tariffs. Theresa May is resigned today is head of the Tory party launching the formal process, which is already well underway. Johnson's winning Dominic Robb is in second place, so g job, he'd and Michael go are in third and fourth place. And they what happens is all the British members of parliament like their members of congress. They vote on the two finals series of rounds. The person with the least votes drops off. And they keep voting voting and voting. They get down to two. So it allows for strategic. And the levers want Boris and rob that way not to avoid leaving. But the remainder is want Boris and remain candidate, then they'll try and destroy Boris. I suspect it will be Geagea Vida, if that strategy works. But yesterday labor almost lost by-election that would be like Nancy Pelosi losing her house seat, which tells everyone in Great Britain. The people have had it, they voted to leave. You have not left. You're all at risk. So I wouldn't be surprised if it's Boris Johnson versus Dominic Robb in American politics, extrordinary thing, Joe Biden did a flip flop that makes all previous flipflops look small by comparison since nineteen seventy six when it was first introduced the Hyde amendment which prohibits federal funding for abortion. The Hyde amendment main for Henry Hyde villain, why it's been the loss in nineteen seventy six okay? Six ten ninety six twenty six is thirty sixteen forty. Forty three years. It's been on the books. Joe Biden entered the Senate in nineteen seventy-two. So he voted for it in nineteen seventy six and he's voted for it every year, they remain in the Senate became vice president yesterday. He came out against the Hyde amendment. That's how far I mean, no federal funds. Why don't we have federal funds for abortion because teepee conflicted issue? There is. Certain say a bell curve of opinion on it. Ninety percent American's believe early abortion, not to be legal ninety percent of American ninety five ninety nine percent late term abortion Bill illegal and the opinions spread across the spectrum. Nobody thought federal funding should pay for people's abortion, in the days of the extremist Democratic Party that we have today. It is. There is in fact, no center left in the Democratic Party. None. Now, I also want to call your attention to a Washington Post column. Go to Washington Post dot com and scroll down you'll find it on the landing page where you can Google Hugh Hewitt in Washington Post, maybe the most important one I've written a longtime has nothing to do with the president has to do with your next forty years. What changed over the weekend it begins last week? The American public was generally unprepared, for state actor attacks on our cyber infrastructure, and he'd many Americans are generally unaware, that such threats exist, even though those threats could potentially potentially be more destructive to the country than September eleven or Pearl Harbor last week, US social media, indeed worldwide social media remained open to manipulation by malign agents disinformation. We are still only defended by the thinnest of lines at the Pentagon and within law enforcement and intelligence communities last week. Our tech titans were largely unregulated group if. Not exactly indifferent to the growing consensus that these members of big tip tech are achieving dangerous concentrations of power, and well, then big tech at best moved at a snail's pace to convince the public of their good and fire intentions in this cutoff, ham handed and outdated regulation. Then on Monday of this week five days ago. Reports confirm that, that Federal Trade Commission, but Justice department, and the House Judiciary committee were all launching almost almost simultaneously offensive against everything represented, by the term FANG Facebook, apple Amazon. Netflix in cool disclosure, I own Amazon stock Washington Post his own by Amazon's founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos my views on this issue. Big tech long predate either my or his purchase. Back to the column. Neither investors nor consumers should be amused by this three headed hydra, attacking FANG. There's an any indication none that any of the would be regulators have the background to assess the new issue set are crucial even care much about the national security implications of either. Our collective defense or lack of expert controls on our technology notice. No public discussion just a bums rush to regulate my answer. Slowdown, I have argued here on this show on television and print for a new regulatory regime for big tech for years. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. House speaker Ryan GOP leader McCarthy to Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit pie national security adviser John Bolton many others in both houses of congress and the only thing Hillary Clinton, I agreed on in our long on air conversation. Following the publication of her campaign memoir, was the need for everyone. To read a different book world without mine by Franklin four on the dangers of this new age of artificial intelligence. I don't need to be convinced that there are risks as enormous as an unregulated Manhattan project out there in the wilds of big tech, but count me, very skeptical right in the Washington Post that these risks are best addressed and remedied by FTC regulators and lawyers using statutory authority is only remotely connected to the massive problem or by Justice department, litigators wielding theory of antitrust law that were previously, not widely. Aired much less debated. There's little danger posed by the newly announced congressional hearings. Perhaps, even some good, but the suddenness of the collective lurch lurch, against big tech serve most to eliminate how little has been done before ask, what these new technologies are doing to us and how they're exposing us to big tech. What is needed, believe it or not is a select commission? Yes. Really? The hoariest of old beltway ruses for doing nothing. But this time this time it could do. Good attorney general William P bar is the right official to panel select commission of say, fifteen or so, including the principal's like. Eric Schmidt or Jeff Bezos or Mark Zuckerberg or their general counsels, three of the four, biggest tech titans. You get a similar number of the country's best legal minds. They can be in academia, practice senior military thinkers on active duty and retired. A dash of academic genius. And public intellectuals Ernie mo- needs on their, the former secretary of energy from MIT. Put Admiral Stavridis in charge of it. Give them six months to a year to product, comprehensive assessment of the risks and regulatory approaches out there bar nose at the government rushing in without a plan is a plan. In fact, for massive, and potentially disastrous unintended consequences. In may. Indeed, be that the Justice Department's anti-trust division is from where the fashioning of new rules must proceed or the expert controls the treasury, or perhaps new regulatory structure recommended to and enacted by congress. But this sudden spilling onto the floor a boiling pot of unknown ingredients and enforcement.

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

Almost about the time. You're either taking your first coffee break or maybe settling in for your first long conference. Call this morning. The House Judiciary committee was voting on contempt for William bar. The attorney general the vote was twenty four to sixteen ride along party lines and came after hours of debate house leaders will now decide whether to take up the contempt citation on the house floor for a final vote. So basically, the House Judiciary committee voted to advise the whole house of representatives to vote for contempt. And that will come in the future. I don't have the time line for that. But if approved the measure would be referred to the US attorney for the district of Columbia who could choose to do something about it or not. In the case of FBI director under the Obama administration is named escaping. Yeah. Eric Holder and the case of Eric Holder. The attorney general decided, nah, nevermind. And didn't charge on didn't charge him with anything house. Democrats could also pursue a lawsuit. But to hear the media today and to hear everybody talking about this. You'd swear. That Torney general William bar had been charged with contempt of congress, and he wasn't it was just the recommendation of the House Judiciary committee. They just won't let this thing. Go. They are they're data mining as much as they can they're they're trying to make this as nothing was here. There was no they're there, and they're trying to make it look like something was or at least something suspicious was bubbling beneath the surface because they really have nothing else to hit this administration with. Martha on social media says wait, they didn't they concoct a Muller team to investigate? Oh, yeah. Mother didn't say what they wanted to hear. Did they so till they'll do it themselves. Totally reject right. Not martha. You're reading between the lines perfectly Mark rights. I wonder if these left Turgeon psychotic morons will somehow end up with our government.

Steve writes, Democrats are in big trouble. You can tell by the way, they're reacting to all this and today was awesome. Dean writes, silly people. It's illegal to release unredacted closed. Grand jury testimony. They're trying to pinch William bar in between a rock and a hard place. So that if he does release the information he's doing something illegal and since he hasn't released the information they're trying to make it look like it's illegal. And you're right about that. Dean, Michael writes, why not claim executive privilege Obama did it with holder. Double standards are strong with this congress. And they're also a. Well, you know what rhymes with witch?

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.
