Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures

"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie

"Just confirmed that everything you think about what we're witnessing with the Biden administration is true. Headline, President Biden mocked for restricting travel from African nations after he attacked Trump for doing the same. This is so ridiculous. This is beyond satire. We're at a point where it's not even satirical anymore. You know the news about this new army Kron variant and South Africa. So what's Biden do? He bans travel from South Africa. Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden. Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban Biden said hell of a difference. In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed. Yeah, that's what Biden said last year and now he's turned around and he's banned, travel from an African nation.

Biden Administration Faces Threat From New COVID Variant

"Let's talk about the president's problems. The Republicans this weekend hit him pretty hard on the Sunday shows for promising to end COVID. Now we've got a crime. What do they do, Cenk? Doctor Fauci, whatever you think of it. And most of my audience doesn't think much is out of effectiveness. He's out of gas. And now he's fighting with Ted Cruz about January 6th. Do you see how that's not public health? I see that that is, I see that, yes, I see how a fight with Ted Cruz is not about public health. I think that I think to be honest with you, Fauci has decided his posture and he's going to at this point he's just going to let that play out to be honest, do that's my guess. But listen, I think this is going to be a major issue at the moment. I think that I don't think it's something that Congress is going to have to wrestle with, but you have Biden quoted back in the Trump administration saying the closing down borders is not the answer, not the silver bullet, stopping these things. So that is a very difficult thing to contend with at this point. And but I will say this, just as jobs numbers are beginning to look up, the economy seems to be in some respects picking up steam according to some estimates you're going to have this variant, which is we don't know the severity yet. But the administration, I think, listen, I think in some respect they're using this to try to boost boosters, right? I mean, I've gotten my booster.

A canny politician who has run for president before to distribute if it gets to the Senate. How much are they gonna carve out of this in the Senate? Salt deduction of tree equity, a 122 billion for homeless funding. What's going to go? So that's a good question. I think the major things that's going to go through are not those things. I think the major things that are going to go are the big things that mansion does not like. I mean, Pelosi has basically indicated if you listen, you read between the lines that the bill is pretty much set besides for some of these big provisions which are obviously huge and quite influential that mansion is going to have problems with.

It was something about male patriarchy, expectations of women and something to do with being white, and I couldn't even follow it. And I thought, how out of touch with the world are you?

Um and I was perfectly fine until the evening and I started thinking about it just went went to pieces, but, uh, yeah, that's okay. It's funny how that comes and goes in cycles.

I know a lot of y'all have had to deal with losing people close to you. It's Zhar do but I don't know. Life goes on.

I tried Remember that So I try to live that, too, but anyway, hope everybody had a pleasant mother's day unless you're oppressed by the patriarchy.

How are you doing all alright. Dude right getting settled in the new year. Things a little crazy. You know just little things like on the capital treasonous insurrection. Treasonous insurrection threats to the inauguration. You know threats to our are just established. Democracy no big deal right reds to our establish democracies threats to our safety to threats to the life of the vice president. Nothing big night. What what's been crying about. I mean jeez seriously considering the fact that we live in a capital city. I'm on red alert for the next wednesday for sure. Yeah slightly so yeah. Because we here in columbus ohio. Neither say we're a little hot and high alert right now. So yes yes because that was telling you just before we started recording that my work set out a notice that the redistricting here in columbus as as notified everybody to be on guard starting around the weekend because of fears of what may be coming up as we lead into the nomination. So isn't that a great way to start a new presidential era for barucha that yeah exactly. That's that's lovely. I on top of everything else. Great yeah because we have a pandemic with like hundreds of thousands of people dying like monthly the thing we really need to be paying attention to is the non existent fraud of election. That is just making people cry because it's colder way. Yeah yeah you know it's funny. How like four years ago. People told i believe us to get over it. Yeah he won. Just get over it the same people that said he won get over. It were the same people who on election night. We're saying stopped account. Stop account yet. Because they didn't want any like 'cause they don't understand how elections work they don't understand how mathworks or basic addition or basic democracy. Which goes to show you that. These are people who are just used to being able to get whatever they want and buy it and they have no concept of actual sex work. Because of that. I think the care. I don't think it's i don't think so. Much grasp is that they may grasp it. Just don't care we'll see. I think the people who just don't care who feel that they are incredibly entitled to whatever they want right. I also feel like there are people with a cultish devotion to anyone that tells them that yes they should in fact be better than everyone else because they are straightway meals right and then i feel like there are people who are just literally delusional. And i think that's why the president right now. The president who by the way made history yesterday by being the first president in the history of the united states to be impeached twice sound loot.

We should stop talking about a corrupt family that refuses to accept the transfer of power. Oh wait we're totally going to do that. Tonight aren't we. This is true. This is true so you know maybe we have to discuss. A certain bernhard conan's reluctance to vacate his office. And do it in engage in the peaceful transfer of power and in and commit insurrection against the people taking over right and incite some of his cronies deploy sabotage devices include government places. Yeah and send out his generals on you know basically unwinnable missions. But they can't tell him about it because he'll go crazy because he's a nutjob i don't he goes he goes. He was doing his at real bernhard coded twitter account until they pulled him recently. They thank the yes they they. They got kicked off youtube and facebook. And all that so.

College, a candidate would only need 37 electoral votes to win and George Washington clearly made the cut. Not only was the commander of the Continental Army elected to lead our country, but he won in a unanimous vote safe to say that will never happen again. John Adams was selected as our first vice president. The two positions weren't on the same ticket. Back. Then he won about half of the electoral votes, but the other half was split up among 10, other candidates. Washington was inaugurated in New York City. About two months after the first Congress started, no political parties, no running mates. No real conflict must be nice. That's how the first election went on this date in 17 89.

I think I just heard that the woman doctor thanking Brenda friend and Scott for his leadership, and I think it's been what two days now, too. Oh, my God. I can see the line already. Well, Joe Biden is personally Joe Biden. Camel areas are person of the year done a damn thing yet. She's historic first vice president He's not even vice president and she's the story and so you think they were going to swear him in before they decided to start the Let's turn down routine, which is what 100 Biden is, If you think, well, you know, there's a risk that once you get in in there It's tough to get somebody out. Oh, water. Well, there's probably two schools of thought in the Harris camp of You know, you want to get him in there, so you don't seem like this is too big of a set up. But then there's the other side that says well, He could do a lot of damage with his magic pen. So which which camp you fall in? It really is kind of funny that They're going after him already it really how something that wasn't news is now news was Russian disinformation just three weeks ago is now a legitimate concern for Joe Biden and his family were within the incubator, and now it's come full force its its first itself. That's right. What's the most amazing Doug is how nobody who three weeks ago is saying Russian disinformation is even acknowledging that they were wrong? Just saying all this is suddenly knew? Appreciate the phone call Doug. I appreciate the phone call. There's a story in the daily beast that was written on this hilarious the wording that they did these documents about the money laundering investigation. These were apparently included in documents that were released back in October. But went little noticed at the time. It was like, what the hell do you mean little noticed at the time you actively ignored them. You actively tried to undercut them to say that they were not relevant that they should not be talked about anybody who does talk about it. Is propagating Russian Russian garbage Russian election interference and now they're saying was little noticed at the time we'll check your own timelines on social media.

Heck, yes, we're going to take your ers in your 40 seven's pretty pretty passionate doesn't doesn't mince words on that. Senator Harris VP candidate for that right now. April 22nd 2019 upon being elected president, she said, I will give the U. S Congress 100 days to have the courage to pass reasonable gun laws and if they fail to do so. I will take executive action. Her words. Vice president and presidential candidate biting February 25th 2013 his own words. That's my birthday. Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your ar 15 because you want to keep someone away from your house. Just fire this shotgun through the door to the door through the door, Ed, Because that's that's the thing that we teach just blindly or blindly. No matter who's on the other side. Fire. Come out right through the door, okay? I thought you were going to talk about when he said. Let's take on the balcony and just blow off two rounds or us he was going to say, you know, practice. No rack the slide on his double barrel right? Or how about this one? Vice president again, August 7th 2019 when asked by Anderson Cooper. If a Biden administration means they're going to come from my guns Vice president, Biden responded. Bingo. You're right. If you have an assault weapon, the fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Remember assault weapons? A made up term, So you know it's up to them to find salt weapon when it's used exactly How about this one? Vice President Biden once again September 25th. 2019. Why should we allow people to have military style weapons, including pistols with nine millimeter ammo in it? That can hold more than 10 rounds. So now he's he's opening up that door. Now it's so nine millimeter pistol is a military style weapons, military style. This militant, but it is military style. How Wow Wow! Yeah. Do it. If you are not a gun person, per se, you may ask. Why do these comments strike such outrage amongst gun owners? We just heard multiple comment about their passion, desire to ban assault weapons. Course, a fictitious term, but the facts As always, in their arguments do not support their narrative. Take this, for example, in 2019, like in the past 20 years. Out of the 14,000 murders in the U. S. 10,000 from handguns. 364 were from rifles. 3% guys, 3% buy rifles what they're talking about here. That same time period. 1400 people died from knives during that same period 1400 by knives versus 3 60 for that same time period 397 by blunt objects. In 600. People last year died from hand fist and feet first is 364 for rifles. What are they doing? What? What's their? What's their agenda? Get this. Just this week, it was announced remembered through the number 3 60 for all of last year, 364 people died by rifles. Just this week, it was announced that in Franklin County, Ohio, alone For the first six months of this year. 437 people died of drug overdose is not guns now puts it all in perspective, Doesn't it? Make your big Ah Biggest ask what? What is the true motive? And if your head isn't already exploded just yet. Just yet. Just listen. So what this man said this week this week in a town hall going Maybe we could do this. You can ban chokehold you can. But beyond that you have to teach people how to deescalate circumstances. Deescalate. So instead of anybody coming at you in the first thing you do shoot to kill, shoot him in the leg. There's ways you have to do more background checks in terms of whether or not the person coming in Past a certain psychological test. And the last thing I'll say I'm sorry because it was really, I think really, really important that you have to be in a position where you are able to identify Identified the things that have to change and one of these changes, so many cops get called into circumstances where somebody is mentally off. Like what happened Not long ago. That guy with the knife That's why we have to provide within police department psychologists and social workers to go out with the cops on those calls those some of those 9 11 calls To de escalate the circumstance to deal with talking down. But we can't cops. They're kind of like school teachers. Jo, You are so wrong so wrong in every aspect. So in this one minute quote the cops need to learn to deescalate Ed. How Annette tire career. All you do is train on how to deescalate Go out and look at some of these bodycam videos. 99.9% of the time you are de escalating, And furthermore to that, so, on one side, he's saying we need to teach from deescalate, which is a which a bunch of bowl because they're already doing it. But And in the other side, they're saying we're going to take all your tools of de escalate. So you take away your Taser. Take away your maze. Take away your batons. What am I de escalating with? We're going to start using our handguns on everything. Exactly. You know you want to send out a social worker with him? First of all luck with that. How do you determine? How many times I mean, does a police officer go on a call, and he doesn't know what to expect so he can't say. Well, you know, I suspect this person is going to attack me with a knife. Come on, social worker. Come on with me, and we don't know. Work point at one point. Is that person? A bad person? A criminal? I mean, at some point here, there's bad guys out there, guys. They never addressed that. And this is this man. This rose me wrong. Every time I hear him, say it that we need to train the officers not to shoot to kill. Shoot another lady all my eye. You can take classes here in l A P D. We have trained thousands and C C W And those words would never come out of our mouth. Shoot to kill your shooting to stop the stop the threat What happens if you try for the leg and you shoot him in the chest? You're just a bad shot..

"The co. the reason why the show was in any way they know they're probably wrong. live at eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one we're going to get to this whistle blower. change which is crucially important a second what should the Republicans. they should demand the testimony of hunter Biden public. they should demand his phone records his bank accounts they should demand information from his account they should treat him exactly the way down junior's been treated. they should demand the phone records one vice president Biden was vice president I love their where they kept those all this talk about all the transcription a secure area so what's wrong with that. the transcripts not supposed to be released to the public none of these conversations are president has with another head of state. why should a bit while he moved to because he was worried about this one it's nothing to worry about this one. the Republicans need to step up they need to get smart they need to get strategic they need to fight the president is fighting back he should he should fight like holy hell but so should. the Democrats. have one Achilles heel after another. Nancy Pelosi running around there's a cover up I just gave them examples of what they should demand and they can use that word cover up over and over and over again. they're two hundred twenty seven members so far who support this impeachment inquiry. not that means there's two hundred and eight that don that's almost fifty fifty. there are twelve Democrats who don't support. you don't go around to a page where one it's almost fifty fifty. I mean there's so many things these Republicans can be doing and they're doing very little. they're so nervous when I am going on a land line in a white collar thanks for coming here Saks come out don't you understand when you see it. what fax. so this piece in the federalist by Sean Davis is very very important it didn't come out of any news room on any cable show. none of the Sunday show hosts you know there's something here. what what kind of reporting is that. or even the same damn thing you are. listen to this about the great whistle blower. do you remember I said here early on I don't remember that whistle blowers include people have secondhand information member that Mr producer. so when you are second hand over here so you're not a whistle blower those are my years in the government I don't remember that. between may twenty eighteen in August twenty nine hello may twenty eighteen in August twenty twenty nineteen. that's a month ago the intelligence community secretly elim made it a requirement. that will sell brawlers provide direct first hand knowledge of a rise of alleged wrongdoings. does the inspector general over there know that that's another one who is supposed to hold up. Michael Horowitz the IG a date at department of justice were supposed to attack but this inspector general he's the greatest. he's got to be the greatest. this raises questions about the intelligence community's behavior regarding the August submission of a so called whistle blower complaining it's president Donald Trump. the new complaint document no longer requires potential whistle blowers who wish to have their concerns like expedited the Congress to have direct first hand knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing that they are reporting the brand new version of the whistle blower complaint form which was not made public until after the transcript of trump's July twenty five phone call with the cranium presidents a Lansky and they complain address to Congress were made public eliminates hello. eliminates the first hand knowledge requirements and allows employees to file whistle blower complaints even if they have zero direct knowledge of under lying evidence and only heard about wrongdoing from others quote unquote. why is it that Sean Davis at the federal as had on cover this. you know there's something there are Mahshahr but there's something there. but Sean Davis you say he's a partisan not like we reporters. we're out to get the information and what information exactly did they get nothing this stuff is fed to them by the Democrats. documents the administration makes public they read the same ones that they tell us what the thing and I looked at this phrase and then I connected it to the other you know there's something there. thanks I need to hear that from some guy. all you are smarter than these people. let's go on to a real reporter. the internal properties of the newly released disclosure of urgent concern form which the intelligence committee inspector general requires to be submitted under the intelligence community whistle blower protection act so that the document was upload it on September twenty four twenty nineteen at four twenty five PM just days before the anti trump complaint was declassified and released to the public. the markings on the documents state that it was revised in August twenty nineteen but no specific date of revision is disclosed. this is the complaint. not the transcript. the complaint alleges that president trump broke the law during the phone call what do you train your present. course justice department looked at it they said no we didn't well we got to get rid of bell barn out bars row. this idiot Nancy Pelosi whether eyes bulging out of our head what the sweat coming down over one inch make up on her face. the plastic surgery popping lows yeah. running around from news room the news room to use the same way. it's a coverage. the love he he he. a previous version of the whistle blower complaint document. which the IC IG and the director of national intelligence until recently provided a potential whistle blowers declared that any complaint must contain only first hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoing and that complaints that provide only here's a rumor or gossip would be rejected. hello ladies and gentleman. we don't get to talk to the road CIA operator. we don't get to question him about his document who was involved in its. production. he gets to put out here saying information. and the media go with every single piece and as a matter of fact the media has been manufacturing information for at least a week. you know there's a quid pro quo here no there's not okay let's lower the standard was still gonna get trump. only mentioned by just seven or eight times no we didn't. hello well he was withholding military support you know if we take this sentence and we marry it with a sense four hundred words later it looks like it's a favor and it hasn't it's a it's a lie. it's a flat out lie. the intelligence community inspector general the IC IG cannot transmit information. we have the intelligence committee P. W. A. based on an employee secondhand knowledge of wrongdoing the previous form stated under the bolded headline first hand information required. now in this. so call complaint by the so called whistle blower he specifically states several paragraphs down but none the less of the first page. that the vast majority information he's using I'm paraphrasing I don't have it in front of me. is not first. wow now doesn't matter get drunk get up get up there's something here. he goes on this includes information received from another person such as when an employee informs you that he she witnessed some type of wrongdoing this is in the form if you think the wrongdoing took place but can provide nothing more than second hand up substantiated assertions the intelligence committee inspector general will not be able to process the complaint or information for submission through their system it concluded. so this was changed. in the final. integration of the change was in August twenty nineteen by my calculation. that's one month ago by my calculation just in time for the August twelfth twenty nineteen complaint. to be filed. she's me to be sent. to Richard buyer. I don't know if he said they're sitting shiver for him I don't know if he's still with us or not and of course. Adam Schiff. any problem with this book. father something here in a winner and I'm reading the same now I see something here. Amy Peters he's anything here. Phil bump. like I don't wanna look I can't say it enough your part is since your partisans where the press were professional journalists. your professional propagandists and again. so we might be seeing how my unraveling all as I wrote about it on freedom of the press there's a system of this. is a system to this. New York times Washington post front pages slice Ukraine call transcript to implicate trump again the federalist website terrific quest website Tristen justice The New York Times or The Washington Post selectively cut up the transcript of a July phone call between president Donald Trump and Ukrainian president Zelinsky on the newspapers front pages just like the old Holocaust day sunnier times member how you moved headlines around in. put things in the back pages that you want people to know and SO four member let the good old days. yeah a lot of practice with this. so what do they do the newspapers front pages. to fit each papers misleading headline accusing trump of requesting a favor that he never asked for a quote trump offer justices aid for a probe of bein weeds the Washington post's front page no we didn't. call trout bass for a favor and call memo shows Blair's The New York Times headline each paper prominently displays selectively edited passages in the transcript tell me what is the difference between these newspapers and Russian media. I mean even have the same ideology. accurate context to seem blown more the transcript it undermines the misleading headlines from the two newspapers. like this quote. this was the actual transcript I would like you to do us a favor though us a favor the country not trump because our country's been through a lot Ukraine knows a lot about it I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with a crane they say crowd struggling to stop there so the favor. is to find out. what happened. with these servers. these allegations that have been reported. not one word about by. not one word about the campaign in twenty twenty. goes on I guess you have when you're wealthy people while the server they say you crane has there a lot of things that went on the whole situation I think your surrounding yourself with some of the same people I would like you to have the Attorney General call you and your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it to get to the bottom of what. what do you crane government did during the course of the last election one bombing the Democrats were working with. yes as you said yesterday the president says that whole Monson scented with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Muller and a competent performance thanks a lot of it started with Ukraine whatever you can do it's very important that you do it if that's possible. see they don't read this on cable TV out loud. they don't explain this. the favorite question was trump seeking help with the department of justice's probe into the twenty sixteen election meddling by Ukraine and I will add that the Democrats were pumping a juice. no where in the fully on classified an unredacted transcript does it show trump either demanding that Ukraine investigate former vice president Joe Biden's son honor as a favor or offer of a quid pro quo. what about by. well let's look into that we've talked about it let's go back to it when I return.

"Offers. You're in a position of strength. The other thing that he tries to do as he tries to becomes agreeable at some point because he's very good at the back end negotiations. And what I mean by that is he makes deals sometimes that he has no intention to keep. And then after he reneges on his deal defaults on his notes, he then pits. The lawsuit against the individual and they wind up settling. Right. And it's really easy to your point. It's easy to agree on a price. If you don't intend to ever pay for it that would seem to be in this in this situation in painting, the shutdown on the on the workers, let them pay for it for however long. What do you think about his view of negotiating with speaker Pelosi? Do you think anything about her bothers or I think it's very perplexing for for for Donald to be have a woman sitting across the table on such a big visible issue. I think it would be. Your time working with him that he's specifically bothered by the fact that this is a woman in power. Oh, absolutely. He was very sensitive even to promotions of women within the organization. I promoted a woman to the first vice president of marketing in Atlantic City and the natural in the position that she had replaced the individual was on the executive committee. So I just assumed that she was going to go on the executive committee by put around the executive committee, and he almost had a heart attack. He was like I have a woman on my executive committee, and it and it was troubling for him. So I've seen it firsthand. And of course, today, we've we've all witnessed his comments is sexist and misogynist comments. So he hasn't changed over the years are not at all let me play for you. What he said at the time. We always get all sides in here. And he claimed that he he wasn't really in debt the way people said, and that really, you know, Forbes and these other groups were after him take. It says that you have a debt of about three point two billion. And that you're losing money at the rate of forty million dollars a year true Forbes has been after me for years consistently after me, they took properties and devalue the properties they say the plaza hotel's not worth what everybody knows what it's total hatchet camp. What do you view as the lessons for the congress either party and folks watching this shutdown and his behavior and figuring out? Well, okay. What's the solution? Well, listen, the solution here is to really negotiate. But, but you know, Trump has a long history particularly with debt as you've just displayed where it means nothing to him in. So in this. I mean, this is complicated, and it's really two issues. But but but but he has. Listen, he my business was the most successful business that he had we made over one hundred million dollars in free cash annually, and it should have been his casino interests in Atlantic City should have been the greatest success success story.

"My guest, Rachel motto and Mike yards have collaborated on a podcast called bag, man. That tells the forgotten story of how a sitting vice president Spiro Agnew came under investigation by federal prosecutors. And before he was forced to resign did everything to try to stay in office, including attacking the press and trying to shut down the investigation. There are several parallels relating to current investigations into President Trump Agnew as Richard Nixon's. First vice president, and he was being investigated for bribery and extortion in nineteen Seventy-three at the same time. Nixon was a target of the Watergate investigation which later led to Nixon's resignation. Rachel Maddow is the host of MSNBC's. The Rachel Maddow show. She hosts and corrode bagman. Make your visits is a former senior producer of her show and produced and co wrote Batman. As part of his research. He listened to the Nixon White House tapes. And to an audio diary made by Nixon's White House chief of staff, h r Haldeman your average discovered. Some surprising previously unreported twists in the story, including one way that Agnew tried to get the US attorney overseeing the investigation to stop it, the lead prosecutor Barney Skolnick never knew this part of the story until you are bits played him the Haldeman tape as you hear on the podcast Skolnik was stunned. Well, we we knew we had some sense as the whole country did have what kind of administration Nixon with Haldeman and all Erlich men, and so on were running, but we had no we had no knowledge that this was happening. Rachel motto, Mike, you're welcome to fresh air and congratulations on your podcast, which has now gotten over ten million downloads. When thinking about questions surrounding President Trump like did he have struck Justice? Did he commit impeachable offenses might we face a constitutional crisis? People tend to look at Richard Nixon and Watergate, but you've looked at his vice president Spiro Agnew. What made you think about investigating adnia? For me. I feel like there are a lot of presidential scandals in US history. But there are very few presidential scandals that results in resignation and or impeachment, and I was really interested in Agnew just because he's one of that very small number of presidential or vice presidential scandals that rose to that level. But also because I realized that when I tried to sort of thumbnail in my mind, what happened in the resignation everything I thought about it was wrong, all of my impressions about it turned out to be wrong. When I looked them up and for me that that piqued my curiosity. I was almost embarrassed listening to your podcast because I knew so little I hadn't spent that much time thinking about why Agnew left office. And I was just shocked by everything I learned that's not an uncommon thing. I think Mike, and I found that same dynamic at work, even as we had started working on the podcast. I mean, I assumed that. That his big sin was tax evasion. I had assumed that it was a Watergate adjacent scandal. You know that the FBI was looking into Watergate related crimes and they stumbled upon something in Spiro Agnew taxes. I had assumed that acne was kind of no big deal as a vice president because he's kind of no big deal in history. All of those things were completely wrong. The history of it is just is not what we remember. If we remember that history at all. And so it's it's nice to find something in history. That's brand new. Mike before we get to what Agnew was guilty of before we get to his bribery and extortion scheme. Let's just give some background before serving as vice president. He'd been elected. The Baltimore County executive in nineteen sixty two then governor of Maryland and sixty six what did Agnew represent politically? When he was campaigning for vice president when he became vice president what it he represented on the right because he was kind of part of the culture war in the late sixties before the term culture war was coined. Yeah. I think that's right. I think one of the interesting things that we found was that he really was the sort of firebrand figure on the right in a way that Nixon really wasn't. He sort of was able to rile up the conservative base across the country. He spoke in very controversial language at times about issues of of race. And you know, law and order, I think one of the sort of interesting things that's sort of not known about Agnew as a political figures is how much in a lotta ways he was much more beloved among the Republic. Base much more. So than Nixon was what sort of manifest itself during the scandal is that Nixon really sort of needs Agnew on his side because he knows in a way that Agnew was much more popular with the Republican base in the country than even he is. So I think as Rachel's alluding to this sort of the political history of Spiro Agnew was a political figures is sort of forgotten, but he did a lot to sort of raise these issues in the Republican base about antagonizing the media, and they sort of these racial issues that have more sort of bubbly and on the right in the sixties. And it's it's sort of a forgotten part of his legacy with the help of his speechwriter William Safire, he said phrases like referring to his critics calling them. Pusillanimous pussyfoot animists means lacking courage and resolution he called his critics nattering nabobs of negativism. And there's a great quote that you use in the podcast. Cast. He said if you tell me that the hippies in the AP is going to be able to do the job. I'll tell you this. They can't run a bus. They can't serve and governmental office. They can't run a lathe in a factory all they can do as a lay down in the park and sleep or kick policemen with razor blades. Very very provocative. I would say he's provocative, but that attack on liberals the attack in other instances on minorities, the attack on the elites the attack specifically on the media, which he really turned into an art form. Is something that was key not only to his controversial nature at the time. But it's absolutely what Nixon needed in terms of lining up and keeping on his side. The very hard line Republican base at the time. And I think that was part of what was interesting in terms of parallels to today. I think a lot of people lament on the right? The anti media stuff that has stoked by the Trump administration, the anti elite stuff some of the divisive and and racially specific stuff that we're seeing from this administration. But it's it's not new it's really it's a well trodden path and Agni was great at it. You think Agnew kinda creates a new playbook for the kind of language you can use in campaign for high office. I mean, he was really quite eloquent actually in his provocative and controversial remarks. Mike, one of the things I think you can correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like when we're going through his most controversial statements one of the things that was sort of mind-bending for us. At least for me was to be both seeing all the parallels to sort of Trump ist republicanism today, and to be seeing somebody who had this, you know, twenty million dollar vocabulary and all the alliteration and all the eloquence, and he always spoke in complete sentences. I mean that was kind of a disconnect for me. So let's get to the bribery and extortion scheme that he was part of in Maryland, what was the scheme. Yeah. Sensually it was a scheme that he had concocted when he was Baltimore County executive where he realized that he had the power to award some local contracts for engineering and architecture, and he could single handedly decide who got the contract, and what he put together was a scheme that predated his time in that office. But he would arrange with these local contractors engineers and architects that they would get the contract and in return, they would kick back to him something on the order of three to five percent of whatever they were making an off of that contract, and these were kickbacks that were delivered to him in cash often in in an envelope. That was just brought to him and handed the hand directly in many cases, use the bag man as part of this scheme, and it was a scheme that he started when he was Baltimore County executive that he then continued when he was governor of Maryland. And again, he used the state roads Commissioner. When he was governor. And basically, it was a kickback scheme. It was bribery and extortion scheme in which if you wanted a government contract in Maryland, you would have to kick back money to Spiro Agnew. And it was it was brazen. And it was delivered in cash, and and he started that scheme in local politics. And then he carried it run into the White House. How did it continue into the White House? Well, when he was vice president, you didn't have as much power to award contracts. That's a federal process, but when he became vice president he was still taking money for contracts that had ripened essentially that he had given out in Maryland as governor. And so the the men who were sort of streaming into his office at the White House were paying him money for contracts. They had gotten in Maryland. And in some cases, he was trying to influence the awarding of federal contracts, and he was successful in a number of cases at steering federal contracts to these businessmen in Maryland who wanted these jobs there was this one. One great moment that we came across in the history of Agnew as vice president where he tried to assert control over federal contracts on the eastern seaboard General Services Administration contracts. He essentially decided that he was going to be as vice president at the guy who decided to those contracts went to and there was a sort of bewilderment about that in the Nixon White House. Why does Agnew what to do this? And they ultimately didn't let him take that over. But we can now see knowing his criminal designs, and knowing how criminal scheme worked that his effort to do that. Once he was vice president, which again failed must have been an effort to get control of more contracts that he could then dole out in this kickback scheme that would earn him some cash let me reintroduce you both. If you're just joining us. My guests are Rachel Maddow, and producer, Mike Yar vets they've collaborated on the podcast bagman. A seven part series about the bribery and extortion scandal faced by Nixon's. First vice president Spiro Agnew. It's also about how Agnew was forced out of office. It's a story with a lot of parallels to today. We'll be right back after a break. This is fresh air. This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guests are Rachel Maddow and Mike yard. They've collaborated on the podcast bagman. About the bribery and extortion scandal involving Nixon's first vice president Spiro Agnew, and how Agnew was subsequently forced out of office. There's a lot of parallels to today. So once the Maryland federal prosecutors found out about talk of this bribery, and extortion scheme involving Agnew. They wanted to investigate and see what they can find they needed the green light from the newly appointed attorney general Elliot Richardson, he was appointed in the spring of nineteen Seventy-three Richardson had already appointed a special prosecutor to investigate Watergate. So what was Richardson's reaction when he was told by his prosecutors that they wanted to investigate the vice president and bribery, extortion Richardson was in mazing situation here because he was not only. The attorney general the third Nixon attorney general at that point the first two had resigned in Watergate adjacent scandals of their own. He's the third Nixon attorney general there is the special prosecutor's looking into Watergate, he's responsible for that to a certain extent as attorney general, but he's also become a sounding board for Nixon himself Nixon frequently personally calling Elliot Richardson at that point to complain about various elements of the Watergate investigation in the scandal surrounding him, and that gives Richardson an insight into the president's state of mind, and how much this investigation is affecting him and distracting him and dominating his life as president and on top of that a totally unrelated scandal is brought to his desk from these Baltimore prosecutors who had not started off investigating Agnew. They had just started investigating. What was known to be a public corruption problem in Maryland. They did not expect that it would take them to the door of the sitting vice president. But it. It did. At the time. They came to Richardson, they had a ton of evidence against the sitting vice president, and they were essentially bringing him something brand new and something potentially equally catastrophic for the White House to the Watergate scandal he was already dealing with. So Richardson is getting pressured by Agnew like don't do anything about this Richardson could have put a stop to this right there. But he didn't he could've and that's one of the really sort of dramatic scenes that plays out in this podcast. And that the prosecutors were counted for us as this July third nineteen Seventy-three meeting where they're going to the Justice department to meet with Richardson for the first time, and they know that they've got the sort of bombshell on their hands. They understand Watergate is going on at the time, and the consequences of this are are incredible going into that meeting as they recount, they don't know what Elliot Richardson is going to do as they're laying out all of this evidence that they've collected against the sitting vice president they're sort of looking at Elliot Richardson's face trying to sort of calculate what he's going to do in Richardson during this meeting has been called out of the room for phone calls from the White House about Watergate from Nixon from El Hage, and so it's incredible pressure. That Elliot Richardson is under at the time, which the prosecutors are aware of and it's not until at the end of that meeting that it becomes clear to the prosecutors that Elliot Richardson is not. Not going to shut this investigation down. He understands the importance of it. And he basically gives them the green light to keep investigating and that they would keep this this investigation secret, including from the White House until such time as they needed to to sort of move forward with a more formal part of the investigation..
