"That Democrats in the House and Senate are planning to draft legislation. You call those maga rallies, Domestic terrorist activities require the FBI, DOJ and department Homeland security to prevent such domestic terrorism, my domestic terrorism. It's as if the last year on year and a half of Black lives matter. And anti for destruction never happened. Tony Katz 93 WNBC Good morning. These are hard conversations for many, many people. Thank goodness I'm not many, many people. Because I find that once you take a breath and take a beat You can really put some things together. And so I started doing that yesterday I I literally wrote screeds yesterday. I mean, good good works and I will share them all in due time. Uh, but I start with Uh, this this list of 10. And it's not like I decided to put them in any specific order. It's just the way that it that it started. We're talking about what we've seen from the Trump rally. To the attack on the Capitol. The siege of the capital. I don't know what people are calling it. I really I really I've seen written somebody from ways. To the aftermath. And there are some things that have been going on here in Indiana and across the country that needs to be addressed. So we could all be on at least for us. This show the same page. On what has happened and we should be clear. I condemn it in every single way. None of those people who entered the capital speak for me. The the hundreds of thousands of people. Who thought there was an issue with the election. They're they're fine. Yes, it's okay to say you think there's an issue with the election. It's very okay to say doesn't make you a bad person. Just don't pay any attention to them. Don't don't. They're there to do one thing break the Republican Party. Gonna prove that throughout the day. Doesn't mean That's sticking your head in the sand is a valuable proposition. What happened to the capital was wrong. I'm gonna get into that. Let me get into my first five here. And I'm gonna break this down further on Tony Cats today at noon. Number one Congressman Jim Banks not incite a riot and the Democratic Party should stop saying it in Indianapolis media should stop saying it. You sound like crazy people. You want to challenge electoral votes? Maybe something you politically disagree with. It's not inciting a riot. Jim Banks is congressman from the Indiana Third Fort Wayne area welcomes insurrectionists to the capital. That's not what he did. There were people there from Indiana. He said. Hey, I represent you. How you doing? So the lie already being told here in Indianapolis proper, the state of Indiana, so gross, so ugly, so so incomplete. People are fine with it because it's it's a narrative. To say, Hey, there is a lawful path to challenge these electors. I see issues and by the way for at least Kong's bank, not in every state, but in in his state's. This is something I've talked to him about. He said, in specific states, actually not his state's in seven states. He's like, all right, there's there's there's something there. There's an issue there. And he decided that was worthy of a challenge. I argue Pennsylvania's absolutely worthy of a challenge. Never claimed fraud. I claim that the courts you served the Legislature which is something we shouldn't allow cause systems matter. I'm very consistent on them. And then people got mad at him because a political columnist in one of the papers up there, Fort Wayne Basically said he incited a riot on Facebook. He posted how that's wrong. And how dare you and then people like always attacking a journalist. It's not attacking a journalist. Someone wrote an opinion and he disagreed. You see, this is a great example of what it is they want in terms of the breaking pretend the last four years didn't exist. The only thing Trump really taught us how to fight. He taught people how to fight and stop not take it and what they wanted to Jim Banks just to take it punch in the face of punch in the face the punch the face. He doesn't have to the people claiming how dare you go after reporter just so wrong? So run! Stop being the Brian Stelter. Of Indiana. All right. Start calling you Who's your Stelter? Just so silly. Really and truly number two big news was made that the incoming attorney General Indiana, Todd Rokita, Put out a tweet. And the tweets said that he supports President Trump. I will always be for our president. And it's like a Okay. You always be for the part. I didn't think it was newsworthy. But it became newsworthy when he sent out an explanation of his tweet that he was doing an experiment to see if he would get suspended. On Twitter as well, like the president has the president been kicked off of Twitter? Now. I don't even think the tweet was newsworthy. But as the expression goes, if you're explaining you're losing So my advice to Tara Akita, who will be the attorney general of India, as of today, right? Anything. I guess That was the news that when the inaugurations happen, um don't do those things. Focus on Indiana. Right now. Just focus on Indiana. Focus on what makes Hoosier allies better. And we're good. I'm not mad at you. I think the story is ridiculous. But if you're explaining, if you have to send out a press release Alison by what you might wanna write this down, if you have to, If you have to send out the press release to explain what you said. You're already losing. It's like having to explain the joke. You ever have to explain the joke to your grandmother because there's a little bit off color. You know, a little blue? Little innuendo, ized. Don't tell my grandmother and you window jokes. Yeah, well, one day you will. It's a problem. Number three. Number three. I am not listening to anybody calls, Mike Pence a traitor and to hell with win. Would I lose listeners? I'm fine guys. I'm fine. It's been a pleasure. I appreciate you. Linwood, Who's the lawyer for Nicholas Salmon calling, um Mike Pence, a traitor calling for his execution. This whole hang Mike Pence thing. Those people not only don't speak to me or four to me or for me to hell with them. I'm happy to lose listeners over this because that's where a break should be. Now we won't of course, because you're not crazy. It's disgusting and despicable. I do not look at the people's during the capital's patriots, right? They weren't speaking for me. It all one guy former military former Air force showed up with ZIP ties. Zip ties..

They were unable to throw him out of office. They were unable to convince a majority of Americans that something had happened when it happened. I agree with you also that the coup Wass led by Barack Obama and the people participating in the coup. Were, in fact given instructions. Some might say orders by Barack Obama and job I. There's no question about this, and that may be what Trump's breathtaking discovery they've had with the DOJ. Is all about. Time will tell on that. So I look, I get your point.

"Secular live this is Jordan secular we do have breaking news you may have seen it last night I was on Sean Hannity's broadcaster came up of course but it broke really last night it was in again The Washington Post Attorney General Barr reportedly has is disputing he inspector general findings about the I. F. B. I.'s rush investigation remember already a Democrat talking point is been but the inspector drills gonna say it was fine to start the investigation so all those reports by Republicans saying the deep state this is that they broke the law I was not true actually this herbal investigations on going because by a U. S. attorney John Durham second the inspector general can't prosecute anyone he can just write a report and second he's not the Attorney General of the United States there is one it's Attorney General Barr and often times the attorney general's at in their old notes so like a couple of pages of of this agreement they have with the report and guess who gets to decide whether to instruct the US attorneys to move forward with investigations that could lead to grand jury subpoenas in the in the even prosecutions so it indictments so the the Attorney General not the inspector general but what he is told key associates it's reported that he disagrees with the D. O. J. inspector general on one of the most key findings in the upcoming report that report is supposed to be issued next week a week from today that the FBI had enough information in July twenty sixteen based off the George Papadopoulos info to justify launching an investigation into the trump campaign and the Attorney General strongly disagrees with that and it and it's again it's a major conclusion from Horwitz doesn't mean the whole report will be wrong or incorrect or will shed light on a lot of FBI wrongdoing but what it does show you is that already that Democrat talking points that this reports really just could exonerate the FBI DOJ well the deep staters their their inspector general friends may try but we've got Attorney General bill Barr who's already letting it be known I'm sure this would I I can imagine is just like a randomly that by the way by the way everybody I don't agree and department of justice is it just gonna follow this lockstep they have no obligation to follow the report they've already even before this reports two ways so long to put together you've got a U. S. attorney appointed who's got grand juries impaneled in criminal investigations ongoing in light of this so don't forget that this is breaking news I will take your phone calls about one hundred sixty four thirty one ten that's one hundred sixty four thirty one ten remember we are only one day away from the next the next day of impeachment hearings instead of state department bureaucrats and the diplomats national security the folks you'd get to hear from four law professors array array and by the way for those of you politico listening as you were yesterday will debut names we did do the digging into law professors and the three of the four or outrageously partisan and have no business being there I mean you could have found any law professors from top schools we haven't taken positions on how much they hate the president or how much they support this impeachment one of them well I'm sure was just there to placate all of us judge Jonathan Turley it was the best that I guess the Republicans could get it but I don't even know if they got big that request or not it's unclear I he's been very critical of the impeachment process but again he has a really got into the past that the process.

"Jay this Jordan. We are taking your phone calls. Let's hear the attorney journalism words when he says, I believe that there was spying on the Trump campaign that the government spy the other campaign. You know, he's talking about his own agency. Now that he oversees FBI DOJ and there's potential wrongdoing there he wants to investigate that takes us. First question that led to is interesting the line of questioning from democrat who was trying to get him to back off, actually. So you don't, you know, listen closely, this Jeanne Shaheen, you don't really think there was spying ultimately gets that. But listen, how it started by fifteen news just broke today that you have a special team looking into why the FBI open an investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen elections. I wonder if you can share with this committee who's on that team why you felt the need to form that kind of a team and what you intend to be the scope of their investigation. I said my confirmation hearing by going to be reviewing Botha Genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during two thousand sixteen a lot has already been invented with a lot of this has already been investigated in the substantial portion of it has been investigated is being investigated by the office of inspector general as the department doesn't stop right. I mean, we know Harry from that that's in reference yesterday, the attorney general confirmed that the inspector general's report on Fiso abuse. So to get this to get to the unmasking had to have the warrants to survey. All we know that that was there because even an art loss at the we found the foia request filed we knew that the masking requests were put in for Trump transition officials. So that FIS that the FIS report will cover from the idea significant portion of this potential wrongdoing. Absolutely. And so in addition to all that you have suggested we should also keep in mind that a former attorney general Loretta Lynch, and James Clapper, basically changed the rules for the dissemination of raw signals intent in intelligence what at that. Do it made it more likely that people would be unmasked and be that the information would be leaked. We also know that Faisal warrants were issued that Susan Rice and Samantha power engaged. At least for news reports in unmasking, and we also have a raft of characters that include Andrew McCabe who was fired for lying James Komi who owed a higher loyalty to one thing. Only himself an of other actors so there is clearly a basis. For a sustained investigation. And we also know that in June of last year DOJ inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a report and among the key conclusions. Takeaways were that senior FBI officials connected to both the Russia counter intelligence investigation. And but Clinton Email investigation engaged in political bias, favoring one political candidate over another that provides a basis if you will predicate for political spine aimed at President Trump this indeed confirms would President Trump said more than two years ago that his campaign was the subject of wiretapping. So I think the evidence is certainly mounting up that there was something. The fairy is going on both the DOJ and the FBI and this call. All sports and investigation, which may or may not lead to criminal penalties for the actors involved. Let's go again continued the line of questioning so attornal Barca to say what he's doing here, gene. Gene keeps pushing what's between him. And a democrat Senator today this happened just our half ago. If you're live with us on the air bites his team, one of the things I wanna do is pulled together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the hill. And in the department and see if there any remaining questions to be addressed. And can you share with us? Why you feel a need to do that? Well, for the same reason, we're worried about foreign influence in elections. We wanna make sure that. During elect spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal. And this is where she said, wait spine. You don't you don't really think spying occur? Do listen by eighteen you're not suggesting that spine occurred. I don't well. I guess you could I think there's spying didn't occur. Yes. I think spying did occur. Let me question is whether it was predicated adequately predicated, and I'm not suggesting it wasn't adequately predicated. But I need to explore that. I think it's my obligation. What he says not taking for granted that taking anything happened before his tenure began, and she she she was expecting him to push back and say not necessarily or I don't want to go that far today. And instead he says the opposite. And this is again, this democrat Senator think she walked herself right into she. And he stuck it right in her face. So to speak. What happened? She has. The questions you wanted to know, you know, really mean that do you. And he says, well, yes, I think spine did occur. Oh my goodness. I should've asked the question bad. Prosecutor never ask a question that you don't know the answer to and which he did. And then of course, he as he should said, that's my thought, that's my belief. But the question is whether it was adequately predicated. Well, you know, that means was there a really good basis in law and fact to gauge in the spine now they made a big deal about spy and foreign influence in the mother report which exonerated the president in Thailand from any collusion. Let's now talk about some domestic spying. And that's what the attorney general is saying you wanted to talk about foreign spine. That's fine. And we did that. And we did that exhaustively. Now talk about some domestic spy, and I'm gonna look into that. Yeah. And again, we we've gotten we filed in this back in twenty seventeen in federal court, foia requests on the masking requests that were made by the Obama. Administration officials the very impressive Avas term twenty sixteen when they were requesting information Trump transition officials. So we know it continued to obviously this surveillance, and that it was widespread and the president, you know, he got mocked when he said my campaign is being wiretapping. Now, that's that's being confirmed. General confirmed that for you today? He just all he saying whether or not it was even you could make a case for being legally done. He confirmed for you today. That the Trump can't pay was being spied on by the US government case, the the FBI, and whether you want to talk about Carter page is being outlined figures and not really official. He he made a broad statement today. The Trump campaign was being spied on the only questions left is was it based on anything legal at all. Or is it all based on a phony dossier? How big of a deal in Washington DC, these subcommittee hearings on the budget usually on a big deal that everybody's paying really close attention to. And you get some new senators involved who are not the normal faces of the most contentious here is not the judiciary committee. So get some new senators involved in this back public back and forth. Maybe they don't know what they're back into because they're not used to that question being so public, and they're trying to put the attorney Joe these positions position the end up making news like this. Yeah. First of all, I think it was very big deal because it came from the attorney general I actually think that Senator Shaheen probably went into it fairly thoughtfully. I'm not. So sure that Senator Schatz did later he actually came back and tried to give the attorney general another opportunity to clarify, the attorney general essentially said, no, I meant exactly what I said. There was fine. There was another thri surveillance call it whatever you want. But the question is what was the motive and Jordan? I'll tell you this. I actually had a great sense of relief. And I think the American people will as well because we've been looking at this from the outside, and we have seen essentially three things we see something that looks like spine the surveillance of Carter page, we see that it looks like it was initiated by law enforcement officials that have a political agenda. Remember the insurance plan? Text in text message about we'll stop Donald Trump from being president. And we see them using knowingly bad information to do it Jordan. That's the dossier. We put all those things together. And we wonder why in the world the department of Justice is not admitting the bare. Facts that we see and looking into it. So then we see the attorney general admitting the facts on the ground and saying look, I am going to make sure that those kind of abuses don't happen again. I'm gonna find out who's responsible, and I'm going to root them out Jordan more than anything. There's a lot of political theater here. But more than anything. I'm just relieved that the bad actions that we've seen for a number of years. Now are finally coming to light I too I wanna go right to the well, actually, wait carry. We'll take your phone call. We come back.

"In now eight seven seven three eight one one one. We're to break this down for you. Because that's what you expect from the Mark Levin show. My fellow Levin is Mark is often either great one back tomorrow night, rich Zoli with you. So there's Andrew McCabe. He's talking to Scott Pelley about he and rod Rosenstein, and how they're plotting against the president of the United States of America. And you should be very concerned about this. Actually, when I can't really put my head around is why more people, regardless of their politics or not afraid of this of just occurring. This this conversation, the FBI DOJ just talking about, you know, removing a president this should concern everybody. But of course, we live in a polarized time. There's no civil libertarians left except for maybe Alan Dershowitz, and that's really it. So people just don't care they're rooting for Trump to be removed. And so they're actually hoping these guys succeeded, but here's Andrew McCabe. Now, they don't remember who brought it up. This is just now the twenty fifth amendment removing a president of the United States, a duly elected president of the United States. And here's the FBI DOJ Federal Bureau of investigation department of Justice. This is not their job not their responsibility, not their purview. They have no authority in the matter. Listen to how casually they just discuss this. How did he bring up the idea of the twenty fifth amendment to you? Honestly, I don't remember. He was just another kind of topic that he jumped to in the midst of a wide ranging conversation seriously. Just another topic. You know, we were discussing the plot of homeland season three. And then all of a sudden the twenty fifth amendment came up. I was talking about game of thrones. And I was thinking about the new trailer. It's out he was talking about the vendors. And next thing, you know. Twenty-fifth amendment comes up just another topic. I don't believe for a second here. These guys were just discussing this like another topic because this is not something the FBI or the DOJ should ever deal in ever. They might sit around and say, hey, have you guys thought about maybe going after that I don't know that nightclub that might be engaged in sex trafficking? Or have you guys heard about that whole thing about the guy who brought a Hooker over state lines, and is now using that for Bank fraud or something because those are all the things the FBI supposed to deal with? So I do believe they might be sitting around the lunch counter talking about that stuff in the break room, water cooler. Yeah, you know, a major drug bust. Hey, are we going to get a warrant to go after El Chapo brother now, but the idea of sitting around and then whether just twenty fifth amendment comes up just another thing. Just another thing he threw out there is pure Bs. This is a deliberate effort as they're sitting around trying to figure out we gotta get rid of this president. We've tried so many different ways. Peter Struck tried Lisa page tried. We tried with the FIS warrants James Komi tried now here, we are commies gone. He's the president. What are we going to do the Republicans like him? He's very popular this base. Republicans are in charge of the house. You're not going to impeach him. What do we have left? Well, the twenty fifth amendment. That's what we have left. You. Don't just throw that out as another topic. You don't just randomly throw that out there. You're talking about the most extreme amendment in the constitution. Besides impeachment when it deals with the presidency. And unlike impeachment. This one is not supposed to deal with president who commit crimes. And they just casually throw it out there. And you're supposed to believe that they just, you know, a bunch of things checking off the boxes. Oh, twenty fifth amendment. Yep. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Just another kind of topic. Yeah. Just another topic. That's it. I mean, we talked about fly fishing because I'm a huge fly fishing rod Rosenstein, huge fly Fisher, go figure and then. Yeah. Twenty-fifth Hammett came up. I mean, you know, also we talked about snacks at tailgates. I'm more of a hot sausage guy him not so much like swings. Go figure, and then of course, they also discussed now this other idea of counting votes. You know, I have this image in my mind here of these guys with a giant whiteboard? Giant whiteboard sitting there with a magic marker as as they're as they're going through the cat. Maybe they have the faces of each cabinet member on there. You know, there's there's Sonny Perdue. The agriculture secretary big old smiley face. Maybe it's a magnet gonna board move it around. Maybe that's what it really is. It's like a magnet each cabinet member. There's Rick Perry's face magnetized, of course, and just the just the face, and you move it around. Yes. No, yes. No moving around the cabinet members faces on the board is they count votes. Did you counsel him on that? I didn't. I mean, he was discussing other cabinet members. And whether or not people would support such an idea whether or not other cabinet members would shared his belief that the president was. Who's really concerning was concerning at that time Rosenstein was actually openly talking about whether there was a majority of the cabinet who would vote to remove the president. That's correct. Counting votes. For possible votes. Counting votes. Now, they weren't actually talking to members of the cabinet. Then all they could do is sit around and go. Hey, so what do you think about so? And so I don't know I think he'd probably be with us. What have you with us? Maybe he'd be with us. Maybe I don't know. I don't know hard to say, maybe he's with us. Maybe he's not with us counting votes as move their heads around the board members of the president's cabinet. There is nothing. There is nothing in the FBI is charter there's nothing in the department of Justice mandate. There is nothing that enables them to do any of this. And here you have these guys just willy nilly throw in this stuff out there, this should concern every single American. How are you not worried about this? How are you not frustrated by this? How are you not scared to death about this that our government has gotten? So brazen these bureaucrats have gotten so brazen they just sit around and casually discuss which members of the cabinet might vote to invoke the twenty fifth amendment. When may have nothing to do with it. They just do it. Anyway. And they know was gonna be no repercussions. And they're not worried because we have given them so much power over us in so much control that they've now taken that power and control even over the president of the United States of America. All those years of us. Letting them spy on us and frisk us into everything else surrendering our liberty little by little little by little keep us safe. Keep us safe. Keep a safe Pfizer court secret. A court to keep us safe. Keep us safe. Spying us listening to our phone calls emails. Keep us safe. Keep us safe. They abuse all that power. And they could show brazen about it. Now, they say, well, we get to decide who's president. We get to decide where the FBI where the DOJ we get the side who stays in the White House. So let's count some heads, shall we? And they're just throwing the soul out there. And that's a me is is really. Honestly, the scariest part of all of this. He's not even acting as if and Scott my God. It's even have these kind of conversations where we realize now, what are we discussing? Do you realize it's not what they're saying? He's not sitting there telling Scott Pelley, Scott as you can imagine for us to be in a place where we're talking about the twenty fifth amendment was just this this is earth shattering this is the world stopping on its axis. Now, just casually. I don't know we were just talking about bunch of things, and it came up just another kind of topic dry cleaning who's getting the dry cleaning today. Oh and also Linda's birthdays tomorrow, am I getting the cake? Are you getting the cake, and then she gluten free gluten free again? She's always on these crazy, diet vegan. She doing paleo just at all in twenty fifth amendment. Yeah. By the way, can we get to hang on a second with the cake? Let's talk about twenty fifth amendment. That's scary. That is scary to me that they were just so brazen about it. So casual about it. No big thing. Eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one of the marklevinshow the great one back with you tomorrow night. All right. Let's start with Mike in Appleton, Wisconsin, Mike, how are you, sir? Hi. How are you? Go ahead. Thanks for taking my call. Just make a brief point. And then get off. Back in Watergate, Nixon was trying to find a democrat. So they did the burglary trying to bug him and all that stuff. But this time the Democrats were going to spy on Trump. So what they did was they had to invent a damn good reason to do it one or two reasons first of all thought Hillary is gonna win and nothing whatever be found out. But if in case, they did or somebody did some digging after the election, they had to come up with this really, what seems like a really damn good reason to be spying on Trump. So they invented the dossier. They invented the Russian collusion thing because that would convince a lot of Americans that that was a good enough reason to spy on your political opponents. And that's what all this is. So when he thought I saw them on sixty minutes the other night, he's sitting there while we were really concerned that Trump might be league with. Of course, that's all fabricated. It's just the high defect that they were trying to spy on a political opponent. And they just keep running with it. Because the media won't call him out on it. And that's what's going on here. It's just ridiculous. Right. Right. And also they figure that Hillary would win and not only cover their crimes reward them for it. Well, exactly, but they still had. They're not stupid. They still had to come up with a reason. Because even after the election Republicans might have found out all the stuff, and Doug it all out. Anyway, then they could have said, well, we really believed that he was inconclusive Russians there. So that's why we did it. It's all nonsense. It's all nonsense. I think it's taken way too long. But I think now with the new attorney general he's been a goal back. Prosecute the people that they actually have real evidence is, you know, the the the call me and everybody else has kind of glossed over while people after remember that the FBI still has all the real evidence against all these people. It's not up position or possible collusion, they have all the evidence. So it's taken too long. But I think now attorney general back and finally prosecute all these people. What they did. We can get back. Listen, I think you're gauging in..
