"I'm Jamie West. Good morning, Mike Room had good morning. Jamie West appreciate it is always of lot happening. Of course City of Phoenix today, voting on getting rid of the mass mandates. We'll talk more about that later on, but let's start with the audit yesterday. There was a hearing in which the county Board of Supervisors were invited assed far as I know they declined, but there were members of the auditing firm that were there. Ben Cotton, one of the one of the subcontractors founder of of of Cipher, which is one of the companies that subcontracted to do the audit with a little bit of explaining to do, And I'm sure you've heard this, but let's walk through this just a little bit. Um and and again. The idea here was build confidence in the people of Arizona and ultimately around the country. But here in Arizona, Maricopa County, especially Let's build confidence that we're going to make sure that our election system is sound. Now I will tell you that this has been a truly a bipartisan message in saying that it is The secretary of state in Arizona, is a staunch Democrat. The governor of this state is a staunch Republican. They both have said Everything was done right. The outgoing county border soup. I'm sorry. The county recorder Adrian Fontas said that the election was done appropriately. The new recorder is a Republican. Name's Steven Richer, he said. It was done right. There's a mix on the county board of Supervisors of Republicans and Democrats. They all said that it was done right. The Sheriff America Polk County Said. It's dangerous to give up routers because that would be you know, give a front like a backdoor almost have people standing at the door hackers at the door that could compromise everything The city does especially policing. He's a Democrat. Well, the Republican County attorney agrees wholeheartedly with the sheriff. So when you talk about bipartisan that has been bipartisan in all of this, I will tell you that I am one of the Trump supporters voted for the president, the former president. I voted for him twice. I thought he was a better option than Hillary Clinton. I thought he was a much better option when it comes to policy than Joe Biden. And But I also understand that elections have consequences. I've never been a person. That says not my president. My first big election involvement was with the George W. Bush campaign in Oh, four, and I used to laugh at all of the anger on the left that would and they'd have the stickers on their windows with the W and a line through it. That said, not my president. I thought well as long as you could deny that you lost and that he's not your you deny. He's your president. Then elections don't matter there who cares? He's not my president. I'll wait till there's a president. That's really mine. Barack Obama was my president didn't agree with him. Joe Biden's My president. Don't agree with him on a lot of things. But I'm not gonna walk away from the will of the American people. I was one of those ballots that was cast America but county my ballot is sitting somewhere right now, with 24 hour guards around it while they're contemplating continuing this audit. So that's the opener. What happened yesterday? Ben Cotton, founder of Cipher, he remember the accusation that files were deleted that they believe in a matter of fact, President Trump Put out a statement saying that the entire file had been deleted, which wasn't true. But there were specific files that have been deleted deleted. Here's what Ben Cotton said. I discovered a lefty. That clearly indicated that the database directory was deleted from that server..

"FT V. Gore In the 2000 election. I was part of the policy team on the George W. Bush campaign. United States Senator Ted Cruz. And so I started down in Austin in the summer of 1999, a domestic policy adviser, spending a year and a half on the campaign. Working essentially on policy that touched on legal issues probably was historically the Supreme Court had always said that these issues are state issues former attorney for Al Gore Stephen Zack, and that the they should not rule on this issue and that the state of Florida should make these decisions well, when the case went up, I remember there was a vigorous debate. Among the Bush legal team about whether or not the U. S Supreme Court would choose to take the case on what was interesting is there was a divide that seemed to break out on the lines of whether or not you had clerked at the court. My recollection is most of the former spring poor clerks believe the court would take the case. Most of the other lawyers believe the court wouldn't take the case. On the reason's pretty straightforward that there is no doubt a court, looking to preserve its own legitimacy to protect its own backside from being criticized from being attacked for being in the midst of a political dispute would decline to take the case. That's the natural self preservation instinct. Of any court, and I'm sure that was a major factor for the justices. You have to know that the Supreme Court does not want a presidential election to land on their steps to land at their feet, Chief legal correspondent and host of Fox News at night Shannon Bream, They try so hard they endeavor so hard with every case in every decision. To me, it is a political is possible. And I think realizing it was going to end up there. You knew that was the end of the road. That was the end of the game, and that was it. And so these justices were going.

"Media is Even getting to the point where Google searches are all about racism. If you Google the sentence, Trump condemns white hate groups. That's an affirmative. Trump condemns white hate groups. You will get search results under Google that start out for the first eight items. Our stories that say Trump refuses to condemn. Trump refuses to condemn Trump refuses to condemn when you finally get to the ninth story It says. Trump has condemned white supremacists. Um, and that Zagallo trick why it's impossible to believe Trump Republicans that Trump condemned them. Trump backtracks debate comments. Trump faces criticism for refuses to condemn Trump refuses to condemn Trump's refusal to condemn White House says Trump has always been your No. I'm serious. I mean, like, even if you put the affirmative statement You will find that the search results are serving up the opposite and unite. Both know based upon what we just played during the three o'clock hour that Donald Trump has Repeatedly condemned white supremacist the K K k etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. There's my favorite, The BBC's My Fred Trump now tells far right group to stand down. Now tells it has taken that long. And by the way, which far right group of their talking about to talk about the African American Latino lead, proud boy, it's become on you can't make this crap up. It is so easy just to simply point out this is a bunch of crap. This is a bunch of crap. You literally are living in a country where the media organizations at a political party are out. They're lying through their rear end. I'm not going to give it through their teeth. Okay, We're gonna go right down to the lowest part of the body and it is they're lying through their teeth. And again. What does this have to do with the policies of the American people that they care about? Carl. We hate racism. Yeah, And you really think Donald Trump a racist? The guy that brought black unemployment to the lowest level ever the guy that had the guts to do the criminal justice reforms that the African American community has been asking for the guy that has the highest numbers amongst African Americans of any Republican presidential candidate in the past 70 years? Come again. Really? Are you going with that? It's going to be very interesting to see the African American turnout for Trump this time around, because it is it is a It's a little known story. But it is a big story to folks like you and I, Carl, that look at these things. Look at exit polling and watch the trends and exit polling, and it has not been good for Republican candidates for president over the years. And the amount of time and effort and money that was budgeted for African American turnout for Republican presidential campaigns in the George W. Bush campaign and McCain campaign in the Romney campaign was I mean significant, and it didn't move that needle at all. Trump didn't have an African American turnout arm of the Trump campaign in 2016. He went out there and said, What the hell do you have to lose and got higher numbers than And then W. McCain and Romney. By the way and growing, Senator Tim Scott was called a racially repugnant term by a white liberal media personality. Ah, A news 12.

"I don't know if you thought of that, but it was It was targeting black voters to turn them off from biting, essentially, because because the thing that reaches black voters more than anything else right now in 2020 1990. Again. These are very ham fisted, but you can see that the strategy behind it right? The Trump campaign clearly wants to make sure because this is how a base election works. You have to get your bass out. But you also have to Make it so that the other side's base is less likely to vote. But there's also kind of practical physical barriers to voting that have always been an issue, but that are especially an issue. When you layer on top of it A you know, deadly global pandemic, And that's where that's where you get the president just recently, saying in an interview that he opposes additional funding for the Postal Service. Because he doesn't want universal mail in voting to be available to voters. You know, in this big piece you wrote about Trump's all mine apparatus in February, you described how it's really robust, getting bigger and more a bus and it was really effective. You wrote in that peace that the RNC in the Trump campaign have reportedly compiled An average of 3000 data points on every voter in America. Explain how big of a deal that is, and how I guess unprecedented that that level of specificity might be. Yeah, when? When I first saw that I actually like Thought it was a typo. I read it. I read it somewhere, and I was like, that cannot possibly be accurate, Right? Like 3 3000 data points on almost every voter. I mean, That I don't have any data points on myself, right? I mean, honestly, if somebody said, tell me 3000 things of value, I think I would top out at like 40, right? S so when we say 3000 data points, that's Obvious things like where you live. You know your voting tendencies, your gender your age, but it's also you know whether you watched the Gulf Channel whether you own adjust what you know to some of your search history. So your Web browsing history. And basically, that's what what sophisticated political digital strategist Khun do is they, Khun? Take that data. And mold very specific ads out of those data points, so Facebook under pressure and kind of some outrage over the role that they played in 2016. Has added a layer of transparency where they will publish every micro targeted political ad in an archive and you can go look through it. And so so if you go search Like Facebook Ad library, You can look up Donald Trump, and you can see the ads that he's that he's posted. And it's pretty amazing because First of all, I will say it's very hard to wade through. And so it's the idea that transparency will fix all of this is probably not really true. I mean, as a journalist like who wrote about this. I spent hours and hours looking through this thing, and it still couldn't find everything. But What you'll see is if you go right now you'll see an ad that the Trump campaign posted, you know, probably this morning. But you'll see like 50. You 75. Maybe even hundreds of different versions of the ad and the wording will be tweaked or the picture might be different Witness and all of it is using the data that they have. To my test and micro target and refined these ads so that they appeal to all these different little groups. Last big question for you. You know, when you talk about The Trump reelection campaign, Really tryingto get to that base, and, to a certain extent, tried to discourage other folks from voting. It seems to stand in direct opposition to the Biden teams campaign operation. They're trying to get this big tent together, which is something that Democrats do. Everyone Since Obama has been trying to recreate the Obama coalition, which had all kinds of folks from young voters of color to activist to white suburban moms, this appeal to as many folks as you can strategy. We still seeing that from the biting campaign That is pretty explicitly what the Biden approaches, But I think that the contrast is a lot sharper, right? Like, you know, I think if you talk to the people on the Mitt Romney campaign in 2012, or George W. Bush's campaign in 4000 for like they would all at least claim that they were trying to reach as many voters is possible. Right? Like they would all say, like, Yeah, we want everyone to vote for us. That's not quite the case in 2020 like sure, I'm you know, Donald Trump would love it. If every American voted for him. I think he probably thinks that every American should But he also is like much more explicit about Kind of slicing and dicing the country up into factions that are on team trump and factions that are against team Trump right and his campaign strategists all talk about this. Like They're very candid about the fact that they have a very divisive candidate and they just want to win barely enough votes to put him over the dump, you know? In just the right places, and just the right place is right and they don't really expect to do much better than that, And that's OK by them, and that's OK by Trump. But I think that contrast is pretty.

"Many years studying, how warnings are made and which ones managed to break through the noise. He says, there are several reasons and would not Seo's manage to push away. The Bush administration to act one is, he was able to show how a further escalation with many hundreds of thousands of people that was was highly likely, and he was able to kind of put that into a presentation, you know, chart, the escalating the conflict into the future. Andrew commissioned, a study, that predicted how many people would die if the US didn't intervene. He also got US Pijesak lights to take pictures of Darfur to photograph, the ground every day to show the villages, that were being burned from day to day and these photographs were so clear that the photographs were unimpeachable and. In terms of their quality in terms of what the atrocities were in the they burn thirty one hundred villages, they displaced two million people. So Andrew laid out clear evidence, there was something else that helped to make the case to the president, he was an insider was I taken seriously. Yes, because I had a relationship with the president's that's presidents, plural. He had campaigned twice for George H W Bush, and he had worked on the George W Bush campaign in two thousand he was not seen as one of these do good us, now, one of these kind of liberal, NGO types. Yes, he had a history in the NGO sector. He was an expert but he was also a kind of a conservative pedigree. He had experienced the armed forces. He was seen as someone who understood that the president's time was precious and understood the preferences, and was seen as kind of pot of us besides his political credentials. Andrew was also an insider in another way. He was a Christian. Spent years leading an international Christian NGO. He knew the George W Bush's identity as a Christian was important to him and important to his reelection chances, in two thousand four Christoph may are says, Andrew laid out the political consequences of inaction and are four where many of the civilians being attacked? What Christian he was able to show how that kind of escalation would be politically relevant to the Bush administration at the time, how it would impact on the reelection chances, in how it would connect to Christian constituency in the US, which, of course, the supporting constituencies of the Bush administration, because it was also Christians where Saddam affected by this violence. Andrew implicitly understood a widespread psychological bias. We all tend to look more sympathetically at suffering when the people who are suffering have something in common with us. There's another part of this. Andrew is successful because he did not President Bush to make a major Utah from the very beginning of his administration. The president had been interested in what was happening in Sudan, the first presidential review that the president ordered was on Sudan policy. Now, what came to be known as genocide in dot four did claim hundreds of thousands of lives. So it may be hard to see Andrews warning, as effective. And yet, if Andrew had not acted Christoph says he believes things would have turned out who us I think the Bush administration did academic act very early, but it did act politically to put pressure on the conflict parties. And they did act. I think as soon as could be probably expected on the humanitarian front, therefore saving lives through humanitarian action and probably preventing the conflict from being even more disastrous than would have been otherwise I couldn't have done that alone. But President Bush did it I have to say I said, in my book, I think he, he ended what could have been another Rwanda, genocide..

I would imagine as as a journalist it's tough to interview someone before the speech, right? It'd be easier interview after the speech that you can talk about the speech. What what did you ask the president today? Richard. Well, you know, and I said this on TV interview, the president you have thousand questions you ought to ask.

"Just a little bit. And talk about Nancy Pelosi. I've got a call him coming up Andrew where I argue that Nancy Pelosi, basically is speaker in name only after the disaster that happened last week with Ilan Omar because of her inability to impose discipline on her own caucus and David Drucker disagrees with a little bit on that. Although he says that that that she certainly had a tough time trying to impose discipline on this. But I want to ask you, what your opinion is on. This does Nancy Pelosi still have any real juice left in the democratic caucus or sheathing run by the by the progressives like Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Rashid, it's lead, and and Illinois. Well, I think we can go back a few years say two thousand and eleven see what happens Republicans when they had the obstreperous tea party caucus, and eventually is pushed John bainer out as the speaker because they didn't have the caucus unity. They had a bunch of younger self proclaimed more conservatives, and they didn't go along with the with the the caucus. Control bainer. So. I think she's in trouble right now. I think she's well look in two weeks from today, she turned seventy nine her to aids. In the leadership of the caucus are are both in their late seventies as well. And what you have is is a younger group of of members who feel their time has come sounds familiar, and they want some action. They don't want to sit on the sidelines. The way freshman members used to both in the house and the Senate. So she's she'll have a tough time. But she's she's tough. I mean, you may not Laker. And I don't want her some years ago when I was working in the George W Bush campaign, and she'll she'll do okay for now. But you know, a lot of these these people are not going to wait very long, and she just ignited the fight over over impeachment. Which got a lot will get a lot of them. Angry. Tom Steyer is already chew stuff about it. So he wants to push the the impeachment issue and Pelosi wisely. From a political point of view remembers what happens to Republicans back in ninety eight when they pushed the Clinton impeachment issue and basically lost. They actually lost members. It's unusual for president. To gain seats and Clinton did. I don't question her wisdom on the impeachment issue. I've actually written that I thought that it was very unlikely that she was going to pursue it because she wants to get some things accomplished this year. So you can have some she needs Donald Trump's signature to do that. And by next year. It's a moot point because you're going to be an election anyway, and the voters can take care of Donald Trump if they're so inclined, but to come out at the very beginning of the session when you've got Adam Schiff and others just gearing up for this thing, I think is. I'm just interested to see how how influential she actually is or whether you still going to have people like Jerrold, Nadler and others and shift for that matter trying to draft articles of impeachment. We got about thirty seconds. And you have the last word on it. Well, this is once again, the Democrats fighting amongst themselves. There's a problem when you're trying to govern American voters decided they wanted a divided government usually that produces gridlock and not much gets done. However, I have to point out that the Cleveland Browns are making a move. Hugh, isn't here. I have to stick up for them and point out that Pittsburgh lost Antonio Brown. So I thought I was free of that Andrew, Malcolm, McClatchy, DC.

This was the Clinton administration their official instructions to their to their senior. Administration officials because they said Newt Gingrich and the Republicans are making as if government doesn't matter we want to teach American voters a lesson.

You can walk to it at three o'clock in the morning and walk around. It's just out there on the grass, and you can walk up to it and walk through it. But they put fencing around it tied it with wire.

And even the CNN reporter camping out there. Waiting wonder how he knew? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's such a contrast. I laugh at it because it's so ludicrous. But it's really very, very frightening. Twenty nine federal agents in nineteen vehicles to come and break down the door or bang on the door of the man who would have turned himself in at the federal courthouse. All all they had to do is say bring say to the lawyer show up at three o'clock this afternoon and turn yourself in for for a theory. And they wanted to make a spectacle. CNN was obviously tipped off.

"There anything different about this moment versus the trends of the last thirty years will the NRA through its lot in with Donald Trump during the two thousand sixteen campaign before virtually any other significant interest group lined up behind Trump before he won the nomination. I think even direction he was a head by by this point in the spring and summer of two thousand sixteen head and quite captured the nomination, but the NRA throws in their lot with him. They endorse him even though a decade ago or so Trump had supported stronger gun laws, and he doesn't about face on that he perceives their full-throated support. And of course, key to that for Trump's point of view is the fact that he loves loud, cheering crowds. And the fact is that the core NRA constituency in the cord gun rights consituency coincides very closely with the core Republican constituency and the Republican party has become more homogeneous. It has become. More conservative and arch conservative in the minds of some. And so within the con- the sort of narrow more narrow ideological confines of the Republican party. The NRA becomes an even more important voice within the party and within the Trump for president movement. So in the campaign, the NRA contributes over thirty million dollars to Donald Trump's campaign. They contribute over fifty million dollars to the campaign at large in two thousand and sixteen and they roll the dice in in the perspect- that Trump was not favored to win the election. But lo and behold, he does so they hit the jackpot. And that's you know, it's interesting that they are such a huge force in conservative politics, considering not that many Americans own guns is that correct, obviously disproportionately I think among self identifying conservatives, but how is it that this an interest group, which does technically represent a relatively small interest is so broad. Bodley identified with an entire political party. Well, the NRA has increasingly thrown in its lot with the Republican party that that's a relative change in the last call at thirty years, historically, the NRA has endorsed more Republicans, the Democrats nationally that tend to be on the whole more conservative. But the parties were more Hama more heterogeneous thirty years ago. And certainly the Republican party was increasingly however, really beginning with the George W Bush campaign in presidency. They've identified much more closely with the Republican party, and it's an ideologically better fit. The NRA itself is a an organization where its members are pretty homogeneous in terms of their political views, obviously, they're United by their interest in guns in gun rights, and also they share certain attitudes and beliefs about.
