"To justice department whistle blowers speaking in front of the house Judiciary Committee today outlining a series of allegations regarding what they see as political meddling in department affairs under president trump and Attorney General William Barr judiciary chair Jerry Nadler told those assembled it seems clear that bill bars actions are politically motivated and improper the Attorney General had simply missed judged the situation and thought that Mr Birmingham would go quietly then we might truck up this episode to simple miscommunication and incompetence but make no mistake this was not an isolated incident joining us on the komo news line is A. B. C.'s Adam Kelsey Adam let's go into what Nadler is talking about Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the house Judiciary Committee essentially accusing the Attorney General William Barr politicized apartment justice serving as something of a cheerleader attacked Dr president trump and we heard from a number of witnesses including a former deputy Attorney General under Republican president George H. W. bush said bar refusing political cronies to reverse decisions involving trump associates and the called party completed the race in his lifetime to the rule of law and we also heard some really interesting testimony from a career prosecutor in the justice department who worked on the project stones he testified that pressure from senior department officials including the Attorney General led to more lenient sentencing and anybody else would be getting solely because Roger stone was an associate of president trump that the timing of this testimony was really interesting because it comes just hours after another trump associate general Michael when he found his atheist met after ruling by and you'll score basically coming after the justice department lobbied on his behalf so we're hearing in testimony on Capitol here and we're seeing it play out in real time to dissociate the president trump being treated special are being treated differently than any other average member of the country and the president had this to say today about what he thinks about Michael Flynn saying he thinks Michael Flynn was treated horribly by a group of very bad people expired on a campaign and they should never spy on a campaign to put it mildly never happened before in the history of our country will ease basically pointing the finger back at the Obama administration saying that while he was running for president president trump was running for president back in twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen he's saying that the Obama administration's justice department was illegally looking into what was going on in his campaign and basically comes down to accusations of partisanship and politicization on both sides of the aisle I think that the Democrats really going after the justice department which has been traditionally so independent from what's happening in the White House willing to at times look into and investigate the goings on of his own party at the White House and saying that William Barkat if he's doing is constitutionally required duty just acting on the president's behalf and present health kind of playing the what about game as he looks back a few years and says he with the Obama administration's justice department I was playing politics not his own is this all coming about because of tourney General William Barr removing the district attorney Geoffrey Berman ends yeah I mean it it certainly doesn't help William Barr's case and you know although president trump has the right to dismissed any of these US attorneys at anytime you like he was the optics of the situation William Barr announcing late on a Friday night that Berman with stepping down Berman later saying I never resign showing up for work the next day on a Saturday morning and then it having to be trump who steps in to actually fire him over the weekend it seems like the trump administration there never really crossing the line when it comes to their actions always seems like there's an administrative staff but they're going about it in the wrong way in a potentially illegal waste inspired by the Supreme Court on other issues being flagged on Capitol Hill today it seems like it the governing party administrative aspect of the action that president trump and his administration you get

S. attorney for the Southern District of New York perhaps the highest profile prosecutor's office in the country would step down July third but within an hour Geoffrey Berman issued his own statement saying I'm not resigning I have no intention to resign and not touched off a crisis within the justice department about who really have the power to to fire the US attorney come Saturday afternoon it was a new statement from the justice department saying that because Berman had not gone quietly the Attorney General asked the president to fire him at which he had now done but then the president as he was departing for Israeli Intel so was asked by reporters what's up with firing Jeff Berman he said you gotta ask Attorney General Barr I'm not involved so a lot of it he didn't know he did it no I asked him to do it kind of thing but why on the back and forth well it seems as if the president and the Attorney General wanted Berman out about the president clearly did not want to spend your prints on it and why might that be well because the the the Southern District of New York has cases that have rankled the president trump in a bit better that touch very close to home think about Michael Cohen the president's former personal attorney that Geoffrey Berman's office sent to prison think about his current personal attorney Rudy Giuliani who is now under investigation for some of his business activities related to two of his former associates who are who have been indicted on campaign finance violations and who are pondering cooperating with the government there are other cases too at Baghdad have also raised questions about the president's influence within the justice system but this band to critics look like an attempt to silence the guy who is bringing all of these sensitive cases finally when that the president moved to fire him and and we know the president actually you have to sign a piece of paper Ben Berman would agree to resign but not before his own deputy was named as the acting U. S. attorney not the person that farm wanted to put in as his own you know for replacement well it's his own then a staffer is actually was named as his replacement then when these cases just go forward and wouldn't it be that an obvious paper trail that if they were to go after this acting guy then there are trying to silence the body where at least if this guy is out and then the acting guy comes in you would think that that would sort of say face for the administration not to put in somebody is that they wanted you know what I mean yeah but the damage is already done because that's the way they tried to do it initially suggested they wanted to put in a favored replacement then have the president nominates Jay Clayton the former director of the securities and exchange commission two to be confirmed by the Senate now given the way it's all gone down not only did they not get their favorite temporary replacement the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee win to Graham cried foul and said this is all kind of weird and if the Democrats want to you know mess with the the nominee of choice well then he's going to allow it because he did not like the way a Geoffrey Berman was ousted that's interesting to to see somebody break ranks like that all right Erin thank you so much I appreciate it talk to you soon thank you to write the letter as ABC's Aaron Katersky well it's always bad when somebody in your own party goes in smells a.

germs you stick your credit card and picks up the germs then you touch your fingers to it so at some point gonna stop all that one could think about those that you see people pay with their iPhone it doesn't actually touch anything it's contactless pacer with some point we have to switch to that Hey we are sick some calls its go to re blow in New Jersey a repo Hey mark how you doing I love your

white team we should not be celebrating criminalizing and sending someone in using the word great first for content that okay well well well well okay the women women you're saying I've said this to if you are trying to get hired by Harvey once he says meet me in my hotel room at eleven PM you should know something's up is that yeah the women they kept calling and kept that should be going to anybody's hotel room at eleven PM but he got to his hotel room and he said here have a drink and he's sitting on the couch and he puts his arm around you that's one thing but if he opens the door naked the bathrobe playing with himself and throws you out of bed that's different then you gotta get arrested and then you gotta go to the police state this guy raped me they could have taken down financially he's gone we all agree but you know he's repulsive but put it as how many guys get trapped with his work rate after the fact when they I know I mean this is sometimes great people that work there made a pass at somebody they hit out that's not so bad I mean you shouldn't do it but that's not a criminal thing but there is a criminal version of this and the law is pretty clear on that

Brooklyn Vincent good morning mark the best thing that has everyone speak at all for is that somebody brings some federal charges and against him because the federal prison well what I wanted to say was at the beginning of February when I caught the flu really guy and I had a really bad case of it and I'm I'm up there in age well over the age of retirement my girlfriend helped lead she was with me most of the time she didn't get it at all I think it's a it's a hit and miss kind of thing I mean I think people blowing this out of proportion one hundred you still strong as a bull you still nothing affects you guys you live to be a thousand but perhaps there perhaps that's the the Mediterranean diet it's just a lifetime of Turkey people is something.
