"Nine sixers one five in overtime how this game overtime layup. Instead of dribbling out it could've taken that one yard bought david chen losing it on defense but in overtime it was y- honest and it was johnny sitting on the sixers courts. Ramona you have a problem with sitting down on the sixers four. Oh i've never seen before and this is a nice. Is it nice. Move like the bucks are kind of disregarding team in the eastern conference even though they ran away with it but like the last seven points or you want to run to close the game so i think for is go ahead and sit on the court take arrest degree breather and i did kind of his tweet at the end of the gate where he said like. Sit back and enjoy the show. If anybody's fans should appreciate that. It is joel. Embiid philadelphia seventy sixers fan. Cal shaw the only thing i have a problem with is celebrating beating philadelphia without their. Mvp candidate with him sitting over on the bench in street clothes. It's just you know. Would philadelphia be celebrating if they beat the bugs without you us. I don't know. I don't think that would be a big deal either. They had to come from behind. They made a nice comeback. I like milwaukee like holiday being added to the team. But but. I don't think this was a big win for them. And we kaplan i just think it's a little rich to hear philadelphia complain about janas doing this when he literally stole a book out of joel. Embiid's playbook giuliani. Does this stuff all the time. But this is one of those rare games. It was a win for both of them. I mean the sixers came in second half of back to back without embiid. They held the Bucks to their worst first half the entire season and then you have the books. They have their worse first half of the entire season and they've resilient and they wants us out of it and that's a win for them to i don't think this is t o celebrating on dallas star. But it is something you know. Yana said he's having fun. And i'm all for having fun but sit down. Phillies court and then taking a photographer's cameras snapping pictures blowout win vs india last month. He's having a lotta fun at the expense of is eastern conference rivals in it and as an unofficial historian of nba pettiness. I'm all for it but pump the brakes you be without without embiid. They blew a nineteen point lead. You almost blew the game at the end of it yourself. So this game looked and felt like a playoff game because you know what you gotta be careful doing stuff like this because you might see him again.

Intelligence Report Says Russia Tried To Help Trump In 2020

"Russia tried to influence a U. S presidential election. That's the conclusion of a new U. S intelligence report this time the 2020 election. Says Russian President Vladimir Putin authorized a misinformation campaign against Joe Biden and used people close to President Trump to undermine the election and to try to divide America. President Biden was asked about it in an interview today on ABC is Good Morning America. He will pay a price. We had a long talk and I we've known relatively well. And the conversation. Start off. I said, I know you and you know me If I established this occurred, then be prepared well, President Biden has his work cut out for him when it comes to repairing the U. S relationship with Russia. Says My next guest, Angela Stent, a long time Russia watcher, She leads the center for Eurasian, Russian and East European studies at Georgetown University. Welcome to the program. Glad to be on your program. Well, what do you make of that report? So I think the report confirms things that people had already suspected. So the Russians wanted to do at least two things. One of them was obviously to boost a president Trump's chances of being re elected and to denigrate Joe Biden when it became clear that he was going to be the candidate on particularly all of these rumors about his son and the son's laptop and corruption. And then the second one really had to do with Ukraine, because when President Biden was vice president, he really had the Ukraine account. He was very active there, and they knew that if he got reelected, probably the United States would ramp up its efforts to help the Ukrainians in their struggle against the Russians. And so that's where the Ukraine anger comes in. To try and reinforce the idea that no one should want to deal with this country because it was so corrupt. And when they talk about people close to President Trump being used by the Russians to spread disinformation. They didn't name any names in the report. But were they really referring to, really Giuliani? I think we have to assume they were because we have photographs off Mr Giuliani with some of the Ukrainians and Russians that are mentioned in the report. And what did they say? The Russians did with someone like Giuliani, how exactly where they being used to spread misinformation. So they, you know, they told them all these things they presumably may have given them some things and writing. They had these recordings off vice president. Then Biden talking to various Ukrainians, and then they also reached out to the U. S media. So, Mr Giuliani, if it is, indeed him had this information, but they reached out to the media via. You know their contacts. And if you like agents in the United States So you have some of this obviously made its way to Fox News on another pro trump media outlets again. All of the you know, accusing candidate Biden of being in cahoots with

Voting Firms Turn To Defamation Lawsuits To Counter False Claims

"And another election Cos. Smartmatic have also filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and pro trump media companies with more likely to come. Bill Adair runs the journalism program of Duke University and founded the fact checking website politic Fact, I think this is a completely new Way of tackling misinformation as a journalist. I am I'm a little bit nervous. The idea of using defamation lawsuits makes us a little bit concerned. In particular, he's worried defamation suits could become a weapon against journalists just doing their jobs. But in the current moment, he's come to believe they have a role to play. We need to incentivize truth and we need to de incentivize. Lying money is what matters to AH Media company. Defamation lawsuit is a big way to do that. The suits appear to be having an effect. An anchor for Newsmax walked out on a live interview with the My Pillow CEO when he started making false claims about Dominion voting machines. Can we get out of here, please? But defamation lawsuits are difficult to win. You need to show the person knew or should have known a statement was false when they made it. George Freeman spent three decades defending people against defamation lawsuits as the in house counsel for the New York Times, He says media organizations have a First Amendment right to report on what important people say, even if it may be untrue. But he says the pro trump outlets like Newsmax and away in May have crossed a legal line by amplifying and appearing to endorse obvious falsehoods. They haven't stepped back, although I don't now. Your signs that they're starting to because they're worried about liability, and I think that's a good thing. Still, Freeman thinks the strongest defamation case is against Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. He made certain accusations on TV. But then he didn't make those in court because I think he knew you would be subject to discipline and perjury if you made them an official documents, so that would seem to be pretty good evidence that he knew they were false. Yet there are reasons why defamation cases aren't filed more often. Many conspiracy theories don't target a specific person or company and the cases can take years to go through the courts, so it's likely when the next presidential election begins. These lawsuits about the 2020 election will still be grinding along.

Baseless 2020 Conspiracies Complicate Ohio Effort To Buy Voting Machines

"President Trump's effort to overturn a Democratic election failed. But the departure from reality at the heart of that effort persists. Ah, favorite conspiracy theory of the president's allies involved voting machines changing votes. The evidence free claim was disproven in places like Georgia that recounted ballots on paper. But the false tale about Dominion voting machines persists affecting politics in a county in Ohio, Here's Nick Costello of Our member station Wcpo an idea stream Stark County is home to Canton, Ohio. It voted twice for Barack Obama and twice in landslides for Donald Trump. Last December, the bipartisan Stark County Board of Elections voted unanimously to replace its aging voting machines with new ones from Dominion voting systems. Since then, the county's three top elected officials, all of whom are Republican, say they've been getting an earful. The board of Commissioners has received hundreds of communications from concerned citizens. This is Commissioner Bill Smith, speaking at a public hearing about the purchase this response from the public as far exceeded the response any of us have ever received on any topic. Come before our board During this two hour hearing In early February, Smith pushed the board of Elections director to address voters fears that Dominion machines are not secure. They just want to make sure that it's valid counted so You're We're going with the one with the cloud right now. Okay over its head, a clouded not based in fact, but created by Trump and allies such as Rudy Giuliani. At least one conservative group has tried to keep stirring the opposition to start counties Dominion purchase. The county's top elections official is Geoff Matthews. He's also the chairman of the local Republican Party. On top of that he runs the board that tests in certifies voting machines statewide. At the meeting, Matthew's defended Dominion. And the integrity of the 2020 election, refusing to recognize that this election was safe, secure inaccurate can be viewed as nothing less than attacking the peaceful transfer of power. Some of the claims made about Dominion voting systems are beyond absurd and require one to suspend all critical thought. In the weeks since that meeting, the county's commissioners have yet to approve the more than $6 million contract, but a decision could come this month. Neither they nor Matthews responded to interview requests. Election officials here want to replace their machines before the fall. The particular Dominion voting machine that the county board wants to buy is a touch screen with a paper audit trail. It was used in 11 Ohio counties last year, according to the Ohio secretary of state's office. Trump won all of those counties. Postelection audits found the results in nine of those counties to be 100% accurate. The minuscule discrepancies in the other two counties were not attributed to the machines. Our hope is that we continue to have a really honest and open conversation about fax. Versus fiction case. Stimpson is a spokeswoman for Dominion voting Systems. She says the company has been available to answer local officials. Questions, sending a sales rep to meetings were showing up to do the hard work of cutting through disinformation and at the most granular levels in Stark County were also Very much supported by the Ohio secretary of State's office. The other way Dominion is trying to cut through the disinformation is in the courts. The company has filed massive defamation lawsuits against Giuliani and other Trump allies about their false

I want you to listen to what he said. Check this out. I've already commented on fraud. Let me just say that. You know there are fraud, and unfortunately in most elections, I think we're too tolerant of it, and I'm sure there was fraud in this election. I'm pretty sure there was fraud in this election to. It's something that Attorney General Bar and I agree on. It's clear that there was fraud in this election, and even the attorney general's acknowledging it. The question is, what does it raise to the challenge? That was described by Peter Navarro and so many others when they talk about how they've done this and That does remain to be seen.

President Trump still says we're getting closer and closer now he joined on Sunday. I do a show on Sundays called This Is America. What Rich Valdas And Earlier in the day part Dr Maria Ryan and America's mayor Rudy Giuliani. Do a show called uncovering the truth. And they had a guest. That's right. The president of the United States, L Drumbeat. Oh, that all this Magnus, the 45th president, and he had this to say about getting closer and getting closer. What about the machines? Can we play the machines? Mr Read about All right. No problem. So All that being said. This is the issue. Dominion is trying to abuse Kate their responsibility. The guy shows up in Capitol Hill, the CEO, he says. We didn't do anything wrong. Nothing that is happening. Meanwhile, On the other side of Capitol Hill. You've got lawmakers all over the country. That are being put under pressure summer doing it on their own saying, You know what? We've got the president's back. We're gonna bring it on January, 6th and others saying, Well, we don't know their vassal, aiding and pussyfooting around. While their constituents are going buck wild on the phone and on the email.

"For the former mayor of New York City America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. What's up New York? I am bitch about death with an S sitting in for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, as he continues to Maintain his Position right? Like a soldier in a fox hole in the swamp in Washington, D C calling in every day doing his show from 3 to 4 right here on talk radio 77 WBC and he has another show because he's so nice. He comes back twice. Right here nine o'clock, However, he's getting ready for the next phase of whatever he's doing with the president, then. Can't wait to see what's going on with that. I want to talk about all the things that are happening right now, because there's a lot going on. You heard about it on the other programs. You've seen it in the headlines, but I think it it's worthy of really focusing on because this new report that says nuclear weapons agency was hit by massive hacking campaign. It's a really big deal. And I think it's a really big deal. Because We've been told by those that are in intelligence in federal law enforcement in cyber security. Things they're secure. The election is secured. And my thinking is Every day. There's more information coming in about a hack. That may be worse than we anticipated it to be. For example, this is American military news. The National Nuclear Security Administration. The end and S a the U. S agency that manages the nation's stockpile of nuclear weapons is the latest in federal agencies hacked, according to a new report on Thursday. That's today. Officials close to the matter told Politico that then the end and s a Has evidence of hackers gaining access to the agency's networks in a mass spy operation that also hacked other various U. S agencies. The officials don't yet know what information the hackers have been able to access or steal. And it may take them weeks to find out what's been stolen because of back door was left open. And this is interesting, because the other night I was with you guys. And I told you Hey! Trump was right to fire this guy, Chris cribs. Who said that the election was super secure, safest thing in the world now, others have said similar but I think it's important to realize you can't just say it's the safest election to clean this election, the most secure election and then not put Any onus on any foreign actors for doing the wrong thing. That's something that John former Congressman John Radcliffe, now the director of National intelligence. He's made clear. That Iran has meddled in our elections. And we heard from him last October when he gave us this report, along with folks from the FBI and folks from the Cyber security Agency. I forget the full name. I think critical Infrastructure Security agency, CIA or Cyber Infrastructure Security Agency C. I s a formerly led by this guy Chris Crips. And He was clear that while we're on it, and we're protecting it, and things are good right now, We know that Iran is involved. We know that Russia's involved and now it seems that China may also be involved with this hacking, whether it's funding whether it's providing the material. Who knows, so this is what they've yet to do, but the big issue That comes about at least that people keep asking me about is what is going on. With tomorrow being the 45th day. Past Election Day. And that they being of significance because it's highlighted in an executive order on election fraud, primarily aimed at sanctions. Nine. A lot of people, including General Flynn, Who have tremendous respect for have Put a lot of emphasis on this executive order. Saying that it may be a fix for what's going on. And if there are people in foreign countries that have hacked into our systems or influences in one way or another, and he kind of describes how they're doing it. It's More complicated than I think Many of us think it is. That the United States government basically can, you know, take control of their possessions and, you know, lock him up. Throw away the key all that stuff and you can read the executive order on your own time. But the point is tomorrow's that fail safe deadline that if it doesn't happen within, you know, it's has to happen. The Intel report has to happen within 45 days. And today we find out or last night rather There will be no Intel report tomorrow. One we were expecting. Because there's all this new information and because of all this hacking that's gone on or, you know vulnerabilities that were exploited. So my thinking is Where are we? But I want to get a quick flash back to what Deanna Radcliffe said in October. Check this out. We would like to alert the public that we have identified that to foreign actors, Iran and Russia. Have taken specific actions to influence public opinion. Relating to our elections. First we have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran. And separately by Russia. This data could be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, so chaos And undermine your confidence in American democracy. To that end, we have already seen Iran, sending spoofed emails. Designed to intimidate voters. Insight, social unrest and damage President Trump You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours, or you may have even been One of the recipients of those emails. Additionally, Iran is distributing other content to include a video that implies that individuals could cast fraudulent ballots. Even from overseas. This video and any claims. About such allegedly frog. Fraudulent ballots are Not true. These actions are desperate attempts by desperate adversaries. Even if the adversaries pursue further in attempts to intimidate or attempt to undermine voter confidence. Know that our election systems are resilient. You can be confident your votes. Our secure So we have to have confidence in our election system. And now let me tell you one of the things that I think that is doing the most damage here is what he just pointed out. He pointed out that the Iranians Have put out emails with videos attached and I've seen this stuff. Where It looks as if there is a Chinese person. Telling another Chinese person. How to falsify or how to print and the show them holding these actual falsified ballots and everything's in Chinese. And then it's his voice of translator, and it's on the bottom and It's this crazy sty. Get thousands of these emails. Hundreds, I should say. And I get it from everybody. Everybody sent it to all you got to see this past us on people need to know about this. Okay? Got it. And I was looking at it with a very healthy dose of skepticism, because that's me. I'm always very skeptical. And hearing the director of national intelligence. Say Hey, Iran is putting out emails with videos with this propaganda if you will, that is inciting social unrest. So you get something that's pushing you towards Civil War, Civil war civil workers. I've never heard so much about civil war, my life from people for on the Internet here, there and everywhere and I was asked him. So if you're armed to the nines All the bullets in the world and I don't encourage this. Who's the target and they never have an answer..

And that's what got them out of communism. Socialism, the dream of becoming and those societies have prospered now. And they cannot believe that we're doing talking about doing what we're going to do with the people that we have trying to take over our government. That's completely retroactive to all of our beliefs and on Lee, our beliefs or the things that brought people out of communism. So everything you're saying is right on, man. Thank you. I appreciate that. And thanks for your service, and I agree with what you're saying that it's exactly what I was talking about How Trump said. You know what the government thing isn't working out. People are waiting forever to see of a doctor because this is a socialistic system. So what did he do? He brought in a free market approach and said, Let them see private doctors. What's the difference? And there are a lot of differences. It's our swamp doctor who's on the government payroll versus that guy who opened the business has his own practice, did it? He said. No. Let him see them. Don't pay for whatever doctor just like the school choice Argument, and Lo and behold, veteran started getting better care faster care You clear up the logjam and you dumped 9000. Federal employees.

"I've returned. Uh huh. And quickly and healthy and strong, Although I must say it was it was about Quick one, but a tough one with With CCP virus. The one given to us by China. I feel like Douglas MacArthur. I have returned. The field of battle. And it is this field of battle because it's steak is our freedoms are freedom of speech. Freedom of religion. Free and fair elections. All right, so That's Rudy Giuliani, and he's talking about freedom of speech and free and fair elections, and that's what matters. That's what we've I think it's what we're fighting for. I think it's what we are. All in this game for is the America that we want to live in the America that we were used to living in the America that we've always known. I mean, call me crazy. I don't know. I want to get into a little bit about what he's talking about about free speech and about the media. But I want to get to your thoughts and some of your calls before we get to that. So let's go toe Terry in Pleasant Valley, New York, Terry you're on with Rich Valdes on the Rudy Giuliani show. Wanted to say You guys got such great speakers on and I'm glad when I listened to the show is like man. Oh, man was thank God you guys were there and it's like It's not that they speak so great, but their ideas are there. The women and the men both and my point is, it's like let's get rid of the Washington politicians altogether. Let's go down there and get rid of him. I don't see a problem with that, Do you? Yeah. Well, thank you. I appreciate your call Terry and appreciate your thoughts. I think what You know what? You're talking about His drinking the swamp, Right? This is what President Trump went to Washington to do to drain the swamp, and the only way he was able to do it, I think was by telling the media Nope. You're wrong your fake news and calling them out every step of the way, And I think that's why he's been successful. He's been able to get the message out. I did interview a couple of months ago actually was a year ago was right before Election Day, 2019. Somebody asked me. Why is it? You know you're a Latino rich, you know, And I said, Yeah. My parents were born in Puerto Rico, where Americans, of course, but Puerto Rican born on the island of Puerto Rico, I'm born in Brooklyn. And they were like, Why is it that so many Latinos lean to the left, and, you know, in and of itself. I think questions like that are interesting. I could pose the same question and say, Hey, you're white, right? Why is it that so many white people get involved in Antifa Right now? I could make that argument but because I don't think it's a racial thing. It's really an ideological thing. But anyway, I went with it. And I explained to them. I think that people have bought into a big lie and whether it's when you're a younger person and guys like Chuck Schumer, who was you know our Our government person. I remember seeing him a lot growing up in not a lot, but you know, more than once he'd walk up and down Ocean Avenue night, see him and he's always out there. He's a real man of the people. He's He's a retail politician. Not like the new politicians like you see where you know, she'll tell people where the project Veritas offices. But do you think she'll show up in her district? Every now and again may be at the office, maybe one planned event. By and large the people that are there this one woman on a video. Check it out when you can. She tells the the undercover person's I can't trying to do a story on NAOC effort. You're doing lots of great things. She's doing great things and they go. Yeah. Now we've never seen her and the guys are you from the area shows you have lived here for 42 years? I've never seen her once I thought to myself. Heard the same thing you know last year and the year before. I mean, these air, the new style politicians that air just like, you know, I'll just tell everybody in social media world that I live in this place, and then I do stuff and they don't do anything and I mean, I didn't want to make this about, you see, but she's always a great topic. Is she So emblematic of what I think is wrong with politics today. But you see In the entire freshman class of New York State congressional delegation. Everybody who's in Congress from New York, at least from the Democrats side. Her and one other congressmen. Didn't get a single piece of legislation signed into law. All the rest of them did. Every other Democrat except her and one other dude. And I think to myself my goodness, the amount of influence that she's a mast. The amount of publicity that she's gotten. And she couldn't get a single bill passed. What does that tell the people? What does that tell the voters? You're great on TV that you should have a TV show or a radio show. You're you suck as a politician, I mean, because that's what it tells me. But perhaps I'm wrong. But my point is The media. The media since sent sensationalizes certain people. And they build them up and they prop him up and they tell that big lie just like I was explaining in that interview. This big lie. They tell you things like if you're a Republican year for the rich, But if you're a Democrat, you're for the poor. And I think to myself, that's bull. And the first time I heard it, I thought to myself well, I definitely want to be rich when I grow up. So if that's how I make a lot of money, I'm going with that team. And in effect, that's you know, kind of how my thinking was a little kid. But as an adult, I thought, man, I own a business. I was a barb around Barbershop. And as a barber, you work hard. You're on your feet, hours and hours and hours of every day And then you get you know employees and they start doing the same thing. Eventually gets a point where you make some money, and then it's like, Hey, why am I paying so much in taxes? The federal government's got their hands on you. You start to pay attention to politics. So when you hear politicians talking about tax cuts and others saying, pay your fare. Sure. You know, I think I paid Plenty of para Fisher. So you start the laugh of the Democrats ago, bro. No, thank you. I'd rather buy my own health care and make my own money. Keep my money, and I think that's You know the birth of a conservative if you will, At least that's how it was for me. I looked at that. And I said, You know what? I'm really not interested in what they have to offer. So going back to what you said about How do we get rid of these people in Washington? Or we should get rid of these people in Washington? I agree, 100%. We should drain the swamp. Trump did a great job. Setting the stage for that, and this second act this second term. Would be The perfect next, you know, Act two. For a trump presidency. Where he can actually drain the swamp where we can get rid of people that are career bureaucrats. The problem. I think that we see is he has really threatened so many people. That don't know how to do anything else. By eliminating So much of the corruption that he wants to eliminate Washington..

"B C. Now on 77 w A. B C. It's time for the former mayor of New York City America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. What's up New York? The legislators are playing with fire. I am rich Battle desk about Bess with an S sitting in for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. He's doing a lot better. Let me tell you something. About an hour ago we heard from Mayor Giuliani on Twitter, and he said he was feeling strong. Amen to that. Our thoughts are with him and Jenna Ellis and the rest of the Trump legal team is the convalescing. They get better. And they continue fighting from the hospital bed fighting from their present location. Where can't even take a day off, And that's okay. I mean, you have to, you know, go with the flow. And It's better to hear it from Mayor Giuliani than to hear it from me, and we're going to get to a couple of clips from the mayor. But legislators are playing with fire, in my opinion if they don't uphold the will of the people. Today was a sad day in our republic. Because of the Case that we just saw in the Supreme Court that didn't get any traction didn't get any action. But We have to fight on. We need courageous patriotic Americans to step up and take our institutions back. Because this is a government of the people for the people and by the people, and we need to act like it. So yes, the state legislatures have a duty. And, more importantly, They have a duty to the people, which is more important than a duty to their careers. Supreme Court justices have a duty To America. They have an oath that they've taken and we expect them to uphold. What we're seeing right now is cowardice. And it's not encouraging. But there was an old saying, growing up, at least for me as a kid in Brooklyn. What I eat won't make you fat. So their cowardice doesn't mean I've got to be a coward. Doesn't mean you have to be a coward. With that. Let's go to somebody we know that is not a coward. Somebody we know that is going to take the fight. All the way. That's Mayor Giuliani. I want to give you the phone number so you can join the conversation. 1 808 48 w A. B C 1 808 48 92 22. I want you to hear just the first installment. We've got a few of these clips because Mayor Giuliani called into his own show. That's right here on talk Radio 77 w. ABC today at three o'clock from 3 to 4. And my colleagues Juliet Huddy and Radius around I We're hosting the show in his stead, just as I am right now, And here's what the mayor had to say. Check this out. Pretty much. All the symptoms are gone. Have no fever. I have Very little cost. It's just about also gone. I've been walking around and I think they're gonna let me out tomorrow morning. Well, amen to that. I'm glad that he's got no symptoms. I'm glad that he's probably getting out of the hospital tomorrow morning. We have nothing but affection for Mayor Giuliani and appreciation for all the work that he's doing him and Jenna Alice and the rest of the team that speaking of Jenna Alice Printed something out a little while ago, which is an article that's written around the statement that she made a little while ago, which was that the Supreme Court chose not Tonto provide emergency injunctive relief. Understood and that there's still an opportunity to For the case to move forward. Based on the papers for a writ of, sir she, Ari. Now listen. I'm no lawyer, nor do I pretend to be one on TV or the radio. But It seems that they are prepared to take this the whole way. And The Electoral College has not yet voted, and that's the statement from the campaign. Campaign generalist Giuliani the legal team, They've asked the Michigan Supreme Court to review a legal challenge seeking meaningful access. This is for pole challenges to observe the ballot counting in the state. Although Michigan's already certified its 2020 election results, and this is in the epic times From today. December 7th. They're asking the secretary of state jostle invention. T O make this change. Why will they believe that? Josh? Excuse me. Joshua Jocelyn Benson violated the state's constitution similar to what happened in Pennsylvania. And the state's election laws by permitting the counting of absentee ballots without meaningful access for Paul challenges to observe the counting and processing of those ballots. The Trump campaign is arguing that Benson's actions also violated voters constitutional rights. To fair and lawful elections equal protection. Quote, saying Michigan Citizen's constitutional rights are being violated by Secretary Benson's failure to prevent unlawful ballots to be processed and her failure to ensure that the statutorily authorized challengers have a meaningful opportunity to observe and challenge the process. This is a big deal. Because how can you count these things? If you're supposed to have challenges from both sides and again, this is rudimentary stuff. But when you don't follow the rudimentary rules, what's to stop you from following the even more important, bigger rules? And this is, I think part of the problem that we face overall. And Like I said, not a lawyer. I'm gonna look at this through the lens of being practical. You know. American kid born to parents from Puerto Rico grew up in Brooklyn and As a teenager came up in New Jersey. Worked in government for a little bit working the media And all I can say is Everybody has a political interest. Everybody And in a situation like this, the political interest for many people is survival. Ah, lot of people are being bullied. Into just basically Feeling like if you are the person That does something, whether it's right or wrong. They don't care. They don't care. They only care..

And now we're going to hear from what Rudy Giuliani had to say at the hearing. Check this out. The chief fraud is the mail in about that was the backup in case they felt too far behind. That's why they cut off the vote. At midnight one o'clock when President Trump was getting too far ahead, particularly in Pennsylvania. In Michigan in Wisconsin. Handle and also in Uh, Pennsylvania, so they cut off the vote. He was getting up to 800,000 in Pennsylvania, 300,000 and Michigan. He was even further ahead in Wisconsin. Cut off the vote. They turn things off. They changed everybody out, and then it's not your concern, except for the fact that you gotta look at Look at this somewhat in total. They started bringing in false balance. We have three witnesses to 100,000 of those ballots being brought into 4 30 in the morning in Detroit, with no Republicans around that they knew of Actually, we had to that stayed behind. In a Dominion employee who was willing to be honest. Not all of them are honest. We're learning so much about this Dominion software. It really is such an interesting thing. One of the Witnesses. Patrick Cole back He was a poll watcher in Detroit. And it's so interesting. I mean, these systems are not things that I work with on a regular basis, and I would suppose that you don't work with them either. But What we find is that they've been used in elections around the world with very questionable results. But what's interesting is that they can be pretty easily manipulated as I was learning from the hearing today, and I want you to hear in addition to what Mayor Giuliani said, because again, people are saying all you make all these allegations, but there's no proof. Again. The proof will be when a court actually takes this and there's some subpoena power given to from the court saying, you know we're going to subpoena this server and we can take a look at it. And I think that's what these hearings therefore, to establish those things. But of course, everybody is a genius. And if you're holding on, please hold on. I'm gonna get your calls, but I want Tol play this quick clip of audio from one of the witnesses and their testimony in today's hearing. Check this out. Key fraud is the nail in about that was the backup in case they fell too far behind. That's why they cut off the vote. At midnight one o'clock when President Trump was getting too far ahead, particularly in Pennsylvania. In Michigan in Wisconsin. Handle and also in Oh, uh, Pennsylvania, So they cut off the vote. He was getting up to 800,000 in Pennsylvania. 300 cut because we just played that when I want you to hear from the witness, and I think this witness is Statement is a really interesting statement because he talks about his experiences with the Dominion Voting system. Check it up. If you could just tell us in your simplest way possible as an expert, What is your opinion as to the validity of the numbers that were certified today? By the secretary of state. And the governor about this election. If I was an executive at a publicly traded company, I would never sign that because I risk jail time and having all my money taken from me in lawsuits,.

You know I try not to say anything if I don't have something specific to add and I felt like I had a specific perspective on issue of just serve being able to relate to this desire to run away from the election because I've been running away from politics my whole life I just really wanted to make sure that people don't run away in that they vote and they you. Go the other direction. You said on Anderson Cooper that you haven't spoken to your dad since the piece came out what would you say to young people out there face with the same situation speaking up and possibly seriously damaging a relationship the fact that we haven't spoken? I. Don't think that that's like forever I. Think it's just Too much of his time right now that just kind of makes sense to. Cheaper space for the moment but I think every relationship is different and your mental health and safety obviously is the most important thing by adjusting that being brave is is something that I feel that fulfils to me and I guess I would like to say to them that they are not alone in the mouth of it ever received a lot of emails and messages from people who are saying like you just articulated what I've been feeling and it made me feel less alone and so that side effect of this is like super super fulfilling for me so. Run. Yeah, you described This piece is being a combination of years of dinner table arguments with your dad growing up calling the space between your positions as a quote painful Chasm I'm really glad people have been reaching out to you. To say that they share that experience with you have you gotten any backlash though from writing this piece? Sure I mean you know there are the twitter trolls and you know the nasty emails to but I will say it's been seventy five percent positive I think in you know the nastiness of the nasty stuff is pretty bad but. But you know I also like to express my gratitude for all those people who have reached out because it's definitely helped me cope with the negative fallout. was there ever a time where you did think to yourself? You were in your dad could like bridge this policy chasm that you guys had. Doodad has jumped around in terms of positions over the years was ever a moment where you're like, okay we're getting there. We're getting closer and no no, we're not. Actually, have the tendency to see see the best in. And so yes, I think I wouldn't be having those conversations if if I didn't hope for some connection and I think I mentioned article that that we do have moments of connection. So so it's one of the reasons. I. Continue to try to have that dialogue and I also feel like just self expression and communication are super super important even if both sides stay exactly where they are I think they're still a psychological and mental health benefits to doing that. So what do you think of Claudia Conway the sixteen year old daughter of Kellyanne Conway she's putting it all out there on Tiktok right now. Has I. You know I can relate to the general situation Obviously, our specific circumstances are different when I draw parallels from my childhood I feel for her like what she's going through is is really really difficult and I think she's like a young woman trying to find her her voice and I respect that I think it's hard though Have you ever spoken to her or would you want to in the future? I haven't spoken to her of course, it'd be open to if she was interested in. Sort opened a dog and anybody. Good I advanced. There were also a lot of people saying, maybe we shouldn't be relying on a sixteen year old to handle this for us because a lot of people are are kind of joking but not joking, she's our savior. Do you think it's unfair to put that burden on her I think she's she's taken the steps. She's taken an yeah. Of course I certainly know that when I post the things on facebook, there was when I was like seventeen I, had no idea what the fall out of that would be. where she stood in that level of love awareness they I, mean I think I, think we should focus on people not that we shouldn't you know listen to her perspective we certainly showed but like I, think it would be wise to focus on people who are of age to vote to win have these conversations. You know last month you tweeted your support for Hunter at your father writing quote trump is the one lying about Hunter Biden and I for one do not support spreading false gossip about politicians child just San. So what was it like you watching all of this and all of that gossip turned into skit the impeachment. Were you super zoomed in and like paying close attention to it or could you just not really stand to watch it? Yeah it sort of vacillate between the two states. It's it's definitely a challenge I'm still. Grapple with without a handle it sort of on a daily basis. But that particular moment was also I will say blake reflecting back a little bit on it just was that was actually the first time ever tweeted directly at my dad and a little bit of what was going on there. You know there wasn't like inside information I had or anything I live in L. A. I'm not like it wasn't dot it was that the debate itself and trump's behavior at it. Made me. So angry that I just felt like I just had to like respond in some way. For sure addressee than a what's your reaction been to the series reports that your father brought to the New York Post about Hunter Biden have you read them at all or a.

"This is impeachment a daily podcast from WNYC. I'm Brian Lehrer. It's Wednesday December eleven. We're at this weird moment right now. It seems to me where the whole thing is both extremely family. Dramatic but extremely predictable dramatic. Is that tonight and tomorrow. The House Judiciary Committee will be doing what's called the markup of the impeachment resolution. The thing unveiled yesterday. People on both sides should be giving us high drama or at least hydrogen from the House. Judiciary Committee predictable. Most people think is that it will pass. The committee on Thursday will pass the Democratic House next week and then it will fail in the Republican Senate early next year but what if something else happens. What if moderates come up with a censure but don't impeach resolution that could win a majority unlikely but new reporting waiting says a few people are proposing it or what if an even more direct smoking gun emerges about trump shaking Ukraine down? Or what if John Bolton is right and Rudy Giuliani turns out to be a hand grenade. WHO's GONNA blow everybody up? He means blow everybody up politically of course but a parallel a little story. Line right now to the official congressional proceedings is that Giuliani is doing what he considers a parallel investigation. It could turn out worse for trump then for the Democrats. Don't know so we'll talk about the Giuliani factor and more now joining us in the green space here at WNYC Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz Co host of the WNYC and Propublica podcast trump inc which generally follows the intersection between the trump family. Business contrasts and the public interest. Their latest episode follows Donald Trump junior to Mongolia believe it or not Eliot also went to Ukraine himself Elf on the tail of Giuliani in September. And yes this is what they look like. Please welcome Andrea.

"Was doing everything he did at the behest of the president. Did he do. Some things did out details or me with some people without doing long briefing of the president. I guess that's possible but I think that Rudy Giuliani was not being rogue the other reason why I think that argument doesn't hold water. Is You had multiple witnesses. This is talking about how things were vetted around what Giuliani was doing and in particular again obviously ambassador silent has a reason to make sure that he's giving the impression that everyone knew what was going on. Is that the defense of him. Because some people were beginning to throw him under the bus along with Rudy saying well you had silence and other folks they were kind of rogue someone very credibly in other areas not fully credible but in this area I think he was. He said over and over again in his testimony. The everyone was in the loop. I mean he used that phrase repeatedly and he kept talking about the things that he did with respect to Ukraine and you know the linkage between this for that as being at the direction of the president of the United States he does it over and over again so I think this idea that allies of the president have. It's a typical. You know strategy to blame some other person to have a fall guy. But that's just not with Rudy. Because of what Rudy himself would say really himself has said and what other witnesses like can bastards Tomlin have made clear the other thing about rudy himself might say he was on Fox News over the weekend and he people think he goes away but he doesn't I don't know he's he's always there and at some point he said I've seen things written like he. He meaning the president here is going to throw me under the bus when they say that A. He isn't but I have insurance. What did he make Rudy? Giuliani saying. I have insurance on Donald Trump. I don't you know he is then said Rudy has himself said it was as being sarcastic in funny kind of sarcasm. Well the reason speech. It's hard to. It's sometimes hard to explain Elaine. The intent of people who are hard to understand so the single.

"It was me. Dan autistic, which I don't think you look. I don't think you act autistic. I'm sorry. Say you look autistic. You don't actually have symptoms of it. You just sound it? Yeah, people make jokes about that. I wanted to. I said, you could say, yeah, Matt's call me autistic, you know what else? He calls autistic anyone. He's trying to call artistic. Because he has a specific. Yeah, he's is. He has a speech impediment. Yeah, he doesn't talk well folks. Well, either good showed him. Roasted days going on with the Giuliani Giuliani. Did you guys happen to see Rudy Giuliani today get very upset with Chuck Todd over the fact down the sunlight Giuliani was in the natural light of the studio in Atlanta. But yeah, Guiliani was saying that we, they were saying, why don't you want Trump to testify? And he said, well, because why should we let him do a perjury trap when you know what is perjury? Is it you know, he says, lying. So he was what is one truth versus another truth. He said, and then Chuck Todd said, we'll truth is truth. And the Giuliani said, no truth is not truth. And then you've literally saw Guiliani get really upset and like like kind of furrow is Brown. Like, don't do this to me. You divide by zero. He just gave himself a stroke and he just said, like, well, what if your drums says he did one thing and Mullah says he did another and you know who's to say, what's real. And the problem is like, that's not what how perjury works you. You don't get a perjury charge because one person says your line, you get a perjury charge if they can prove your line. So all right off the bat, Giuliani, trying to confuse what perjury even isn't trying to be like anyone is mean to me can just say, I'm perjurer. So it's that classic thing of like, we're, we're not gonna put him out there because it's a perjury trap, but he would never perjure, but there would set him up to do it, but he wouldn't do then he would perjure himself by accident because anyone by just being honest, could be sentenced for perjury, if other people are lying, which is a very to settle perjury. He can't tell the truth like Trump is incapable of telling the truth. Like I, I don't even think he'll admit to his own name like it's just like he lies about absolutely everything. And I think that that's why his legal team keeps saying it's a perjury trap just not so much that it's a trap, but the fact that since he can't tell the truth, anyone asking him a question is trapping him into burglary and I watching this, and I think we all kind of agree that Giuliani is showing some signs of dementia. I don't know who's going, I Trump or him. So much work that shit crazy. See, I think that Trump may Giuliani has surrogate on the news because he thought dementia was contagious, and he apparently felt that confuses Giuliani as he can confuse everyone else because that's essentially what Yuliana he's doing. It's just going out there, confusing himself and then hoping that that extends to everyone else who listens. He's just getting his reps in, you know, he's out a few rough sets out there, but hoping this open mic and these questions and answers. But I think that they're immediately sowing the seeds now so that when Trump does perjure himself, he'd be like, oh, it was a perjury trap, and then everyone who supported Trump will be like, oh yes, the famous term perjury trap, don't we all know it's totally fine purchased. Travis is kind of a dog whistle to his fan because what they're really saying is, do you like the president? Do you think what he's doing is right? You don't wanna see him in a trap to you. Do you think that when he, this is what it really is. Don't you think that when Trump lies every day he's lying..

"And ashley you've written about this you've talked about it to some degree what does this about what could be an innate need for drama on the part of the president i think it says that it's inescapable we often write about the president sort of preferred method of governing and managing which is to do so in chaos and i think what you're seeing with the legal team right now is a microcosm of that there was a lot of talk when rudy giuliani came on people were a little skeptical but they were excited to have a big name excited to have an television tat attack dog and there was also excitement when the president brought at flood on that is a well respected lawyer who is a sort of person you want in the trenches with you when you're facing this sort of an investigation but the way the president has managed sort of not quite pitting one against the other but plotting strategy with rudy giuliani the flood and the rest of his team didn't know about i talked to an outside adviser today who basically described the other lawyers as simply baffled by what's going on this is the president's management style this is what he seems to prefer on he stated that publicly and articulate and it and it also seems to be an almost instinctual urge but you are seeing the downsides of that right now with his legal team barbara on that point ashley just made i want to show a tweet from someone we all know and a colleague of peter's maggie haberman tonight kind of put it very succinctly one person close to the white house sums up trump's legal strategy right now as two teams there's the trump rudy team and then there's the lawyers of elegant turn of phrase there but do you imagine right about now and that flood is really happy he moved all his stuff across town from his partnership and williams and connolly to a small office in the west wing i imagined he's quite frustrated to see rudy giuliani out on television after he himself says he's only about halfway through learning the facts of the case i mean no lawyer should be out doing that and there can be some very significant consequences of rudy giuliani as trump's attorney making these statements on his behalf those are statements.

"In the role of what we used to call a rainmaker in this case a sayer of soundbites and not necessarily legal accurate i think it's definitely it's that and maybe doral of trying to keep the president from doing something stupid that could make things only worse for him a perhaps even like firing robert mueller i think giuliani and maybe other people in his some people in his orbit recognize what a bad idea that would be and he's coming in just to sort of keep the president calm sort of act as an intimate intermediary say hey i got this rudy giuliani is you know as a long history as a federal prosecutor and understands how this works i don't think that he believes he can bring this to a speedy end but i think he knows that the president trusts him he's been a very faithful a backer of donald trump for a long time and perhaps he wants to come in to keep the president from harming himself frank what's the upside of rose stein telling the president he's not a target and let's not forget the report includes the muller investigation at all and the cohen raid here in new york is that an example of hopeful or cute wording and how can he get away saying something like that which clearly will have a demonstrable effect in bringing down the temperature in the west wing well it's it's buying time and he can get away with it because it's accurate they're not yet ready to charge the president apparently so they're being truthful but they're also at the same time trying to buy time so that they can stay in their position and get their job done and if it calms the president down if it delays firing or something hasty of either muller rosenstein all the better but let's understand that you can turn from a subject to a target in a heartbeat whenever the prosecution says they're ready to go and frank that line about manafort being a potential back channel russia today really gets your attention doesn't it.
