Supreme Court Greenlights the Release of Trump Tax Records

"Going on here. I mean, you look at what's happening here with the Supreme Court, just this week now saying that they're not going to block a House committee from getting their hands on those tax returns, which is apparently kind of a final defeat, right? Because the president and former president have been trying over and over and over again to prevent this from happening, his argument has been all along that this is a political witch hunt. They're trying to use this for political purposes and they're not going to stop. I mean, it's amazing how much he has angered the other side. I think it's political enemies are hoping that they can somehow prove this conflict of interest between what he had going on within his business and what he was doing as president of the United States. And if they can prove that, they can sort of point the lines to a money trail that may somehow indict him in some way. I mean, we're standing the fact that so many of these presidents have really kind of maximized the whole money trial thing. After the fact, of course, I guess in their defense, it was after the fact, right? So whether it be Bill Clinton getting all kinds of deals and setting up the whole Clinton global initiative after the fact it was after the fact, I would still argue that it's pretty murky. It's pretty suspicious. Some of the relationships and the money that has changed hands within that whole CGI environment, but they're trying to suggest that the president was using his office for financial gain. If they could prove that, then that would be a pretty big win for the Democrats. And should theoretically completely exclude him from being able to run again in 2024, which is the plan right now because you heard him the other night, he announced his candidacy. I would say, and if you look at some of the polls right now, he's way ahead. I've told people this before I do think that if he is successful with being able to go through with this run, I mean, if the Democrats don't take him down on these fraud charges, then you're probably looking at the Republican Party, nominee, being Donald Trump, because the base loves him, and it would be very hard for, say, Ron DeSantis or any of the others to kind of come out of the woodwork and take the mantle, so to speak from Donald

Supreme Court OKs handover of Trump tax returns to Congress

"After a three year legal fight, the Supreme Court has approved the handover of Donald Trump's tax returns to a House committee. There were no noted dissents as the high court rejected Trump's plea for an order that could have blocked the Treasury Department from giving 6 years of returns for both him and his businesses to the House ways and means committee. If Trump had persuaded the court to step in, he could have essentially run out the clock on the Democrat controlled committee since Republicans who will take over the house next year would almost certainly have dropped the request. It's Trump's third high court loss this year. The justices earlier refused to step into the fight over an FBI search of his Florida estate and did not stop the national archives from handing over documents to the panel investigating the capitol riot, Sagar Meghani, Washington.

The Art of Retaliation

"I want to talk about an important principle in politics and it is the art of retaliation, the art of retaliation. Now, this principle came to my mind when Kevin McCarthy said recently, I, Kevin McCarthy, I'm going to remove Eric swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar from their House committees. Now, we should note that this is a kind of an unprecedented, well, actually, no, it is a precedented step. But it is an unusual step because the general modus operandi, the way of doing business in the Congress is this. The majority party controls the committees. They appoint the chairman of the committees and the committees, by the way, are the mechanism through which legislation passes. Committee is a very important a judiciary committee, the ways and means committee and so on. And the majority party has the majority of members on the committee, but the minority party, in this case, the Democrats in the House would have the right to appoint their own members. But the Democrats decided last time around, to violate this kind of code of etiquette, if you will, and throw a prominent Republicans, notably Marjorie Taylor Greene, offer committee. Oh, she's an extremist. So extremist or not, the point is she's not being named by your side. She was being named by the Republican side. And the fact that the Democrats said, well, we have the power to do it, so we're gonna do it. It was very important and it is very important for Republicans to be like, well, you know what? Two can play at this game.

"house committee" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Facebook and Twitter were grilled at a House committee hearing in March of last year about how they moderate or fail to moderate content posted by users. There was a lot of discussion of section two 30 of the communications decency act, Google's chief executive officer Sundar Pichai, told lawmakers that revoking section two 30 would revert content moderation to the early 1990s before that protection from lawsuits existed. We strive to have transparent policies and enforce them without regard to politics or point of view. Our ability to provide a range of information and viewpoints while also being able to remove misinformation is possible only because of legal frameworks, like section two 30. Congress has taken no action, and so now the Supreme Court has decided to step into the middle of the politically fraught debate over section two 30. Joining me is Eric Goldman, a professor at Santa Clara university school of law, and the co director of the school's high-tech law institute. Explain section two 30 for us. Section two 30 says that websites aren't liable for third party content. It's a really simple premise. The idea is that people who post content take responsibility for it, but the services that they use to post that content don't. So now, both cases here involve terrorist attacks abroad. Tell us about the case against Google first. Well, I really both of them involve pretty much the same set of facts. They involve terrorist attacks abroad that were allegedly related to social media. And the relationship can vary based on the facts, but the general gist is that the terrorist organizations recruited and radicalized readers online and because of that the services now take responsibility for the actions that are done by these terrorist organizations or the people that they radicalized. So is this about the algorithm generated recommendations? What are those part of it? But you can look at it a little bit more broadly. I think the starting premise is that the terrorist organization should never be online in the first instance. And if they are online, then the social media services giving them that support now take responsibility for any of the consequences that flow from the visibility that they gain online. So it's really one of these situations where social media services are just one of many possible contributors to the outcome. And we don't hold everyone who has that kind of tenuous connection to a terrorist attack responsible for the attack in the first instance. Isn't it a leap for the plaintiffs to go from showing social media postings to proving that the platforms were responsible for international terrorism? It is a leap and that really gets to the core of the underlying social question. Here, assuming that a terrorist attack is done by an individual who's had many relationships in life, they have a landlord, or they have a Homer's association. They have a job. They took the bus to work or they have an Internet access provider who allowed them to connect to the Internet. All of those people in theory are all some very indirect contributor to the activities of this individual, but we don't hold them responsible. So we make a distinction in the law between what we call bus four causation, could never have happened without this person doing what they did. And what we call proximate causation, the people who actually are close enough to the outcome that they could have changed the outcome. And it's that last piece, the idea that social media services are the proximate cause of a distant terrorist attack just doesn't really pass the sanity check. We look at them and say, that's too far, that doesn't make sense. And a number of the related cases to the ones that are going to Supreme Court have failed for that very reason. Of course, then

It would also remove the congressional review period for D.C. legislation. The plan will be marked up on the House committee on oversight and reform. A prison sentence has been handed down to a former Virginia state employee who pleaded guilty to stealing money from COVID relief programs meant to help unemployed people. It's a prison sentence of nearly 6 years for Sadie Mitchell, who prosecutors say got away with $1.8 million in COVID relief money. Jessica eber, U.S. attorney for the eastern district of Virginia called it appalling. Unemployment insurance benefits were intended for people suffering the worst effects of the global pandemic. The scam involved Mitchell using her job at the Virginia motor vehicle dealer board to gain access to a government database. She took people's social security numbers and dates of birth, used the information to file fraudulent claims through the pandemic unemployment assistance program and then collected the benefits.

There is a lot of evidence of potential crimes and we know the Department of Justice is expert in that. And it's really their jurisdiction. A federal judge in a civil suit involving the panel's work has suggested the former president and attorney John eastman likely committed crimes related to trying to overturn the election results. But the Justice Department isn't likely to move quickly. It still hasn't charged former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows with criminal contempt, which the House voted to do last December. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO B news. About half of all Americans think former president Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in the January 6th attack on the capitol. In the meantime, a higher number, 58% say Trump bears a great deal or quite a bit of responsibility for what happened that day. A survey from The Associated Press north sent her finds 48% of adults think the former president should be charged 31% say he should not. The poll of slightly more than a thousand adults was conducted before Tuesday's surprise, hearing it has a margin of error of plus or minus four points.

"Learn more at Edward Jones dot com. Most people know the basic facts of the attack on the capitol, a challenge for House investigators is to show what those facts mean. A House committee played video from January 6th. And they also played video of testimony. Witnesses showed it was not a mere protest or even tourism, as former president Trump's loyalists said. Republican representative Liz Cheney said the defeated president led a violent attempt to overturn a democratic election. Tonight, I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible. There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone. But your dishonor will remain. NPR congressional correspondent Claudia grisales joins us. Good morning. Good morning, Steve. Okay, so if it wasn't a bit of tourism as people attacked police and broke down barricades and broke windows and damaged things and walked through the capitol and a number of people were killed, what was it? Right, chairman Benny Thompson said the attack marked the culmination of an attempted coup directed by former president Trump to overthrow the government. The violence was no accident. It represents Senate Trump's last stand, most desperate chance to halt the transfer of power. In a series of video clips, the committee gave us a look into some of the thousand about a thousand interviews that they conducted that vast majority was voluntary. Several featured their most high profile witnesses such as former attorney general Bill Barr, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. Well, as we heard from people like that who were so close to the former president, what did their testimony add? Right, they did present some striking in revealing insight. For example, we saw one exchange with ex attorney general Barr using explicit language to describe how he told Trump three times that he had lost. I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the president. And, you know, I didn't want to be a part of it. And that's one of the reasons that went into me deciding to leave when I did. We also learned Ivanka Trump agreed with Barr's assessment that no election fraud was committed. Here's a portion of her interview with the panel. How did that affect your perspective about the election when it turned general Barr made that statement? It affected my perspective. I respect attorney general Barr. So I accepted what he was saying. Okay, Claudia, so the facts are obvious here, even people close to Trump knew the facts, even his family knew the facts according to the sworn testimony, the two Republicans on the committee know the facts, but there are some other lawmakers who see it in their interest to pretend the facts are otherwise or to change the subject. What are they saying? Right, Ohio Republican Jim Jordan complained, where's the prime time hearing on the Afghanistan withdrawal last year? And this ties into a larger theme when GOP leaders yesterday said Democrats should be covering other pressing issues. Here's Republican leader Kevin McCarthy. I don't see any prime time hearing set for gas price. For battling inflation, for feeding our children, for making the streets safer. And several GOP figures made their case on Fox News, which did not air the hearing in full as other networks did. Where did the hearings go from here? Right. We'll see 5 more over the next two weeks, focusing on Trump's role in the attack from the lie of election fraud to his pressure campaign on state officials and his former vice president Mike Pence. Claudia, thanks so much for your reporting really appreciate it. Thank you much. A plate last night, up early with us this morning and pierce Claudia grisales.

"Your free estimate today It's 11 11 a federal appeals court rejected president Donald Trump's efforts today to block a House committee from getting White House records related to the January 6th capitol riot The decision comes a day after Trump's former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows sued the committee in Washington federal court seeking to void to subpoenas related to him from the same select committee Political reporter Josh gerstein joined me earlier to talk about the court's latest decision He was basically arguing that his executive privilege and documents and conversations that he had with individuals but here we're mostly talking about records from the Trump White House that that persists and continues even after he left office and that therefore the House should essentially have to negotiate with him in order to get access to those documents The national archives said look it's really a question of what the president himself the current president Joe Biden wants to do when you're talking about executive privilege And President Biden has said that he thinks that these records should be provided to the House select committee and this appeals court basically in a three zero decision here agreed with the archives that it's appropriate for these records to be turned over I noticed Josh as I was reading through some of this that the appellate judges they wrote this is one of the quotes that said the events of January 6th exposed the fragility of those democratic institutions and traditions that we had perhaps come to take for granted Can anything at all be read into that as this goes forward and where does it go next Well I thought it was pretty interesting in that decision as well that they talked about the direct connection of president Trump to the events of January 6th So this appeals court piano was really saying these records could be very relevant to what happened and were not simply a tangential issue of planning for some event on the capital but that the president had a direct role in inspiring what we have now 700 or so people who are charged with criminal offenses stemming from the events on January 6th So the next step here there's a slim possibility that president might decide to take the issue to the full bench of the D.C. circuit Court of Appeals I think that's unlikely and he's going to instead go to the Supreme Court His lawyers and his spokesman have already indicated that he'll try to do that and see if he can get some relief from them The appeals court here gave president Trump two weeks to petition the Supreme Court and ask for some kind of emergency relief You'll need 5 votes from the 9 justices up there in order to sort of halt this process and folks may be aware three of those justices were appointed by him by president Trump Matt's Politico reporter Josh gerstein It's 1114 now in Washington we will check sports coming up next year on TLP How many steps do you take before you have foot pain Hi it's Jonathan cotton with a good feed store and the truth is the battle between our feet and the concrete or asphalt usually winds up with our feet losing Studies show that about 75% of people will experience some kind of foot pain by middle age I found that out a number of years ago with plantar fasciitis and I tried to remedy it with shoes and drugstore cushions that didn't work Finally I went.

Friday's today that the pillow guy says that the president of vice president to resign and the last the previous guys going to become the president again. He he's put out the date. I am totally going to launder my blazer. Because that's going to be a big day because that might be what chat about some friday night. I don't think so. Katie benner is the soundtrack to the survival of democracy. You know we're getting most of our information from her. But i i'm curious about one thing she said to about the i. G report of necessity is methodical and thorough and could take a year and as you get more information about the fact that this was a plan. This insurrection attempt co attempt was a real plan. How do we. How do we translate that. How do we sit around and wait for a year. For a inspector general's report about the fact that donald trump was calling up people in sync. Flip this election for me right exactly. I mean there's i appreciate this sort of balanced that she's talking about that when you were talking about people having committed crimes in a political context in this case trying to overthrow the government and gives somebody in power. We don't criminalize politics. You can't however commit a crime in a political context but it has to be sort of approached so methodically so it doesn't seem like we're becoming the kind of country that if you get voted out of office you then naturally end in jail. That hostile only happens if you are definitely committing crimes while you are a politician. And so there is a certain. There's a sort of balance inherent small conservatism there. But mira carlin's has a justice department. Where all of these former high ranking officials may have participated in very serious crimes and the justice department has to self police. It's own officials in a way that fix that faster than any criminal court proceeding could as you said. He walked into a crime scene every day. Thank you my friend. We'll see you tomorrow. Rachel thankfully breakings tonight. We have new details on the abrupt resignation of a united states attorney just weeks before. Donald trump left office today during three hours of testimony before the senate judiciary committee. Bj pack the former united states attorney for the northern district of georgia explained. His unexpected departure. Trump was upset. That pack would lie for him. Katie better of the new york times reports. Bj pack quote told the senate panel the donald trump had been dismayed that mr pack had investigated allegations of voter fraud and fulton county georgia and not found evidence to support them. According to a person familiar with the statements. Mr pack testified. The top department officials had made clear that mr trump intended to fire him over his refusal to say that the results in georgia had been undermined by voter fraud. The person said resigning would preempt a public dismissal end quote. Bj is the third government official to testify before the senate judiciary committee about donald trump's efforts to abuse the justice department for his personal gain. Now that's not good for the former president but it's also frustrating because once again we hear about something that sounds like criminal behavior by donald trump and so far. He has not been held accountable for that behavior which goes to a bigger point on accountability in the wake of the twenty twenty election trump told his supporters to attack the capital on january six. He used his election lies lies that he wanted. Bj pack and others to spread to propel those protesters to action to incite an insurrection. More than five hundred fifty people face federal charges for invading the capital. But are those charges actually enough to prevent another insurrection. That's actually the concern of chief. Us district judge barrel howl during a plea hearing two weeks ago. Judge how will ask why a defended who terrorized members of congress was getting off merely on a misdemeanor quote. Does the government in agreeing to the petty offense in this case have any concern about deterrence and quote any concern about deterrence for the capital attackers. What about donald troub- who egged them to go there. What about donald. Trump's lost cause alleys which are still pushing that same lie that incited the coup attempt from both inside and outside the capitol. Do we as a country have any concern about deterrence for insurrections deterrence for donald trump. Who still filling our politics with his lies deterrence for the next donald trump and the bad actors like russia who to help american democracy to fail. This is not about punishing the past as valuable as that may be. It is actually about protecting the future. It's about protecting american democracy which became which came perilously close to being undermined on monday in a different capital riot case judge how will question the financial consequences the consequences that the rioters face quote. I have found the damage amount of less than one point. Five million dollars when all of us. American taxpayers are about to foot the bill for close to half a billion dollars a little bit surprising see last month. Congress passed a two point. One billion dollar security bill to secure funding for the us capital and the capitol police. That's why we the taxpayers are paying to ensure that another january six doesn't happen but what good does that protection do. If the criminals who attacked the capital are not sufficiently punished. What good does that protection do. If the man who incited the insurrection is never held accountable..
