"Looking into the origins of Covid 19. They'll take care of it quote they have announced weeks ago. They're looking at this. What really made me. Wait. Would this be the same House Intelligence Community Committee led by Adam Schiff. Don't trust a damn thing that comes out of that committee run by Democrats because shift lied about what was going on with Russia for years. He's a liar. A proven liar. And again, the Intel committee. And I can look at all the issues that I think we need to look at. The flu deaths, the data, the lockdowns the the curves that they showed us. The flip flop flower Fauci crap. The P P P loans, the mask contracts, no bid the deaths in the nursing homes No. Oh, and Senator Bob Menendez says, Oh, let's have a little commission here to take a look at how we better prepare the public health agencies. In the same public health agencies that got it wrong. They got their their their their lockdown concepts wrong. I don't want Wilma Wooten anywhere near public policy. Want to investigate her. I don't want to help her. Because you know Menendez is Bob Menendez is, uh, Commission. I can tell you right now at the final report is going to be We need to spend more money. Hmm. No. Not holding people accountable. Like Anthony Fauci. We need to have a we have a full on rectal examination of Anthony Fauci, There is so much to show and illustrate with his misstatements lies. The guy was supposed to be in charge of responding to a pandemic. But somehow he had the time to write a book. He got a book deal. He's going to make a bunch of money on a book called the Truth. Vouches out there. Flip flopping. Everywhere he goes. Over the weekend. He was once again clutching his pearls. And he was saying, No, I can't believe people are attacking me. It's it's It's. It's what you they're comparing me to Hitler. It's so bad. Um He was trying to defend why he was flip flopping so much. Finally, he's acknowledging that he flip flopped. But wait till you hear the excuses to why audio three the people who are giving the ad hominum czar saying Ah, Fauci misled us first, He said No Mass, Then he said, mask. Well, let me give you a flash. That's the way science works. You work with the data you have at the time. It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion. And your recommendations based on the data as it evolves. That is the nature of science. It is a self correcting process. That's the reason why I say people who then criticized me about that or actually criticizing science. It was not a change because they felt like flip flopping. It was a change because the evidence changed the data change. Oh, that's so it convenient, Okay? Um, I I just wish it were true. I wish that he had said you know what the data has changed, but he didn't say that on so many issues. He just very holier than thou. Pretended, like all of his previous statements were consistent with the new statement he was making. And then he imposed a broad brush. Mandate restriction, imposition on you and me. Expected us just to be like, Okay, I guess he's right. Those of us we're keeping score. And we were remembering what this guy said, realize that well, this guy keeps getting stuff wrong, and he changes his tune and then he denies changing is due because, Fauci said in March In April of 2020 that we did not need to wear masks. Unequivocally. He even said masks will be bad for us. Then he adopted a mask mandate by June, July August, stridently saying we needed to wear masks. Then you didn't say at the time. Oh, the data has changed. No, no, no, no. What he said was well, We lied about the masks Audio five. We were concerned the public health community. Many people were saying this. We're concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment including the N 95 masks, and the surgical masks were in very short supply. And we wanted to make sure that the people namely the health care workers who were brave enough to put themselves in harm ways to take care of people who you know were infected with the coronavirus and the danger of them getting infected. We did not want them to be without the equipment that they needed. So there was not enthusiasm about going out and everybody buying a mask or getting a mask. We were afraid that that would deter away The people who really needed it. Which is it? Fauci. Did the science change as you're alleging now, or were you lying as you stipulated, then? Which is it, dude? Because guess what this little thing called Google, Google and and and the Internet and YouTube. It allows us to keep track of your lies. And then present them Now, Of course, the interviewer on the Liberal station that Fauci was booked on over the weekend did not challenge him. If I could get Fauci and my grip on this show We would we would know. Okay, We know he's going to lie. So let's get Fauci from last year and play him the audio and say, Well, which Fauci are we talking to today? Which one? When were you lying, sir? Were you lying then? Or you're lying now because it sounds like you're just a liar. Fauci back in May of 2020 said that Oh, kids aren't going to be going back to school. That's a bridge too far. We can't go back to school with kids until we have a vaccination. For every person in this country. Then he changed his town. Fauci also said that you had to wear a mask. Even if you were vaccinated that was in response to a back and forth with Rand. Paul And that Rand, Paul said. Well, look, if you're vaccinated, you don't need to wear a mask and found she's like, Sir, you're wrong. You're wrong..

"You know, we needed on things like this, but very, very, very, very plausibly. You or anyone else that has a sizable audience has been fact checked by someone who's not even an American. Oh, my gosh, I was makes me think that it would be better to have your live MSNBC watchers. At least at least they feel like there might be some eventual accountability for what they're doing. But if you're talking about outsourcing the stuff the China cross paths with exactly At least I could find out what the outfit is. And maybe try to get some Redress. We're speaking of Steve Yates. He is the CEO of DC International advisories of China Policy expert. Steve Tell everyone listening this about the role that show that the relationship and roll that China has The U. S agricultural industry and how they've tried to leverage that in recent years and you have some particular knowledge of this is a guy who ran for lieutenant governor and Idaho. Yeah, well, one of the more famous examples on the presidential level has been the influence they tried to exert in Iowa. And so there has been a former governor of Iowa. That was that was President Trump's ambassador to China. Branson and s so the Chinese would make would offer up access to their consumers for all of our wonderful farm products, and if they took kind of a controlling share of, say, corn in one state or wheat in another, or Eh? In another places, they can have tremendous political impact by saying what? Whoa! Don't don't talk about going to Taiwan or don't support your elected members on these tough on China policies or I'm so sorry. We we might not be able to buy the next billion dollars worth of your product for the coming season. So sorry. S so they've been able to exercise that influence for me personally in a state of Idaho. There's a lot of AG exports that go to China. But it's people who then associate with the Chinese or used to try to angle that could attack you. On. So since I have a name in Chinese and people have known me through the media and Chinese language, ah, whole bunch of fake accounts and start sending criticisms making fake videos and they get picked up in the American press. And they don't know. You know, we don't have sufficient fact checkers and some part of rule America. They don't know what's going on. They say I'm an agent of China and anyone who's ever known me from the 19 nineties. Until now, there probably isn't anyone who has a longer record of being a pain in the backside of the Communist Party that I have. But it just takes a few fake accounts and build a fake audience and that Twitter farm goes and the Facebook farm goes and it looks like his hundreds of people that don't like this Mr Yates from Idaho because he's tough on China. Stephen, What should we do about this? Do you think that there's A recognition of how Important, powerful and nefarious Chinese influence is Chinese Communist Party influences the United States that there's enough willingness to do something, and if that is the case, I'm emphasizing the if What should be done. But I think the single most potent force we have in America right now is the trump movement. It's something that can earn coverage. It can influence people who are active in multiple states. That's what it's gonna take. It's going to take things in state legislatures. In addition to Congressman federal government, people have to forget. That the federal government isn't gonna be our savior. We're gonna have to save ourselves from the ground up and they're gonna have to put pressure on universities. They're going to put pressure On on the patterns of trade that our state engage in. That's going to be much, much more effective than trying to wait for a federal response. But recognizing that free trip that those college kids got to go to China Gonna come with some strings that that great welcome that you've got to promise to buy all these crops. All this this group of visitors that was going to prop up your resort or your hotel or something like that. That could be taken away as easily as it is given. And it's going to come with strings attached. I think Secretary Pompeo has been in historic secretary of State in this regard. The most candid In terms of talking in the world. But also talking to Americans about with the nature and scope of this challenge has been. We're just at the very beginning of having that real conversation. It seems like nothing. But in my 30 years of working on this topic, this is the first we've even made headway and having that more honest conversation. It just needs to continue. Our allies are getting hit by The Chinese to the Brits. You're strange, handsome, ugly political attacks on them by the Chinese and so more of the world is coming around to this Isn't Donald Trump the person versus Big, bad China? This is China declaring war on civilization as we know it. Freedom as we've known it, and, sadly, they've got enablers in her own politi. We've got to get wise. I think this election experience has awakened more Americans to roll this boulder forward on the right way. I hope before we let you go the story that that broke about all these Chinese Communist Party members. Based on this, this leaked list. It was name and particularly UK. Major international United Kingdom Base, You know British companies. Did, Steve, What do you make of that? I mean, it was think of a company. You know, Rolls Royce. We think of these British companies that people all all know off top of their head they've hired and in some cases put in pretty sensitive positions, not just Chinese workers, which is a different thing. Members active members of the Chinese Communist Party. Yes. So these are the target of corporate leaders and influencers has been something that a lot of nefarious players around the world have gone to the Chinese have made a big big play for that. And the corporate boards and corporate leadership that louse these people in either are really, really ignorant. But let these people into the barn or they're in on the joke, and what they're trying to do is to buy access to the ever elusive billion plus Chinese market by allowing these folks into corporate boardrooms and influential positions. What happens most of the time, though, is technology and talent and other gets stolen away from them and a competitive rises up in China. They need to learn this sad lesson. This has happened in many corporations in many political organizations in the U. K story could easily be replicated in a lot of America. We know that members of the Senate and House intelligence communities have been personally compromised by staffers being on their on their roles for many years, and an FBI briefing ends that tenure, But the damage is done that Zbynek done in corporations but have done in Congress. It's been done in campaigns. And everyone needs to get wiser about how to vet this. Stephen Yates, CEO of D. C international advisory and follow him on on Twitter. Steve Great to have you, man. Thanks so much. My pleasure. Take care about what the economy going to do next year. What happens when we have thousands and thousands of small businesses shut down can open again. You think employment's gonna be affected? You think the economy might take a really tough turn? Well, I've got an idea. Prepare now. For that uncertain future.

Flavor ice cream Did you get How on Sirius Star Way? What flavor Ice cream did you get? Well, that's where again Our media is not actual media. It's propaganda, and we should stop calling it media and we should start calling it mainstream propaganda. That's what it should be called, because that is exactly what it is you you had to CBS reporter make the mistake of asking last Friday. I believe it was and Joe Biden. Instantly accused him of smearing him. And I said I knew you would do that. These are the types of questions you ask system here and as expected, you know, we talked about this right after it happened. We talked about that Monday morning and I was looking at that going. I know what that is. I know what that is. That's a cudgel. That's not it's not just for that CBS reporter that is a warning shot to every other reporter. You ask this question. I'm going to mock you. And in fact, somebody else attempted to ask the question on Sunday. And when they did, the other reporters were heard on tape laughing that they ask the question about Hunter Biden and naked and that's it. It's all the pressure in the world. You need your colleagues. They're treating you like garbage. I'm telling you, you shouldn't do this. This isn't out of bounds. Question your preposterous person. You'll never make it in this industry of us questions like that. That's on serious on. So so the message has been sent. And so now what do we get? We get questions. Like what Flavor? Ice cream did you get? Because that's actually much more serious. That's acceptable that you'll advance. You'll make it really far kid when you asked the ice cream question, and he was praised by the left for before studying at the using the Donald Trump's School of interviews that Joe Biden used Donald Trump's school of dealing with reporters to put them in their place. You know, in the Hunter Biden News update for you because they won't tell you we will. The FBI is in possession of 100 Biden's laptop, and it has been since December of last year. Fox News End CBS for that matter, confirming PBS also confirmed this that this is no Russian disinformation. The FBI and Justice Department officials are concurring. With director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe that this laptop is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign. Despite what you're hearing from people like Senator Chris Murphy and Congressman for some reason, Adam Schiff. Despite that, This is not a Russian disinformation campaign. The intelligence community has no reason to believe that Yet. This is the way they're trying to get you to stop talking about it. Some kind of conspiracy theorists. Were you a traitor? What do you pro Russia for Putin? You're not allowed to talk about this. Stuff talking about it, and it's worked. The brow beating has worked for a whole swath of people in Washington. But not everyone is not so far. I just my bigger question is not whether this is Russian Russian disinformation for me. This is all about what the heck was the FBI doing with the laptop for almost a year and not a peep? Not a word came out and I highly doubt That if this hadn't happened if Rudy Giuliani didn't get the laptop, and if Bevin Connor or Connell didn't did not dump those 23,000 emails to Peter Schweizer That we would even be talking about this. I think there's their shenanigans afoot in the FBI and DOJ, and that's why we did not know about this sooner. Yes, it's terrible. And we know again. I can. We can keep flipping this around. What if Don Jr did this the thought experiments worth it. If Don Jr had done, this of John Junior's laptop had been obtained by the FBI. Nominally Donald Trump's FBI If Donald Trump Junior's laptop have been obtained by the FBI in December of last year, and it contained evidence that he had been arranging kickbacks to his father for rearranging American four part foreign policy around his son's business interests, I can guarantee you The FBI would have sent Almost daily on urgent letter to Congress about what they had in their in their possession, right. How often would they be alerting the House Intelligence community Committee that they have something of importance that they need to know about? You need to know about this. We went through. Just imagine when all this happened. Dated back December 2019 what was happening in December of 2019? When the FBI came into possession of 100 binds laptop showing that Joe Biden may actually have financial entanglements worthy of exploration. What was happening in December 2019. The impeachment of Donald Trump the impeachment of the president, the United States for a phone call. Meanwhile, the F B I in possession of 100 binds laptop that very same time. I don't know.

"Drop box in L. A county was set on fire Sunday evening, and they've opened an arson investigation. Oh, Can I just say I'm shocked? It's taken this long to happen. It just seems to be the simplest way. If you want to mess with the elections, the easiest way to do it, right. So why would you said that Ballot box on fire? You're just lighting Democrat votes on fire in L. A county. What was the point? It's not like it's going to change the results of the election. You could burn. You could burn all but one of the boxes in L. A county and the Democrats would still win. Good point. It's not exactly a mystery is very, very good point. But yes, there's somebody set it on fire. Little Dame the probably blame Republicans for that. Um, I'm sure it was just someone with nothing else to do. All right. Um, so let's let's talk a little bit about what's going on with Hunter Biden, Shall we? Let's let's go to Friday, Wolf Blitzer asked Adam Shift about the Hunter Biden email story right and whether it could be connected to Russian government disinformation, so The reason this is important Is it because this is really the first sign of the talking point of what it was going to be about Russian disinformation? Here's Wolf Blitzer and Adam Schiff. Does it surprise you at all that this information Rudy Giuliani is peddling very well could be connected to some sort of Russian government disinformation campaign. Well, we know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin. That's been clear for well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son And you know the idea that the president that the White House counsel and others were made aware that Giuliani was being used by Russian intelligence on using Russian intelligence in the sense of meeting with an agent of the Kremlin and pushing out this Kremlin False narrative. The idea that they were knowing on still on the floor of the Senate during the impeachment trial, pushing this Kremlin narrative is pretty breathtaking. But I guess at this point we can't be shocked by anything This administration does no matter how Craven Craven. I love that. Adam Schiff is the left expert on Russian disinformation and motion of involvement in politics. I just love that He's the expert and they had him on explicitly For that reason. They're like, Hey, connect all this to Russia, will you? He's like he's a one hit. Wonder this guy. He's like Hanson, the boy band. Remember, Bob, It is like that's like if you have Hansen on your tail. Visions show on CNN. You've got to connect everything backto him, Bob. That's the only thing you're allowed to do if you're the host. Still, when you have Adam Schiff on everything has to be about how Russia is really pulling the strings. Russia, Russia, Russia, But listen, He's gotten away with it up until this point, making wild, outrageous claims and he gets away with it. So why not let him keep going? It's it's kind of his niche. It's his thing he's found his. He's got his own little shop there, and that's what he just lies. It's like he's the head of the House intelligence community as you have any evidence for the claim that he's asserting on national television and is designed to divide the country know No. Yesterday. Now let's go. Teo, the director of National Intelligence, John Radcliff. He was on with Maria Bartiromo yesterday morning on the Fox Business Channel. And they were discussing Adam Schiff and what he had to say about Russian disinformation. Unfortunately, in this case, it is. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Who as you pointed out on Friday, said that the intelligence community believes that Hunter Biden's laptop and the e mails on her part of some Russian disinformation campaign All right. So she asked him if he believed if he believes that what the intel community things Let me be clear. The intelligence community doesn't believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that, and we have shared no intelligence with chairmanship for any other member of Congress. So in other words, Adam Schiff is the one who's spreading disinformation. Yes, he's making it up. He's a very shift is a good spreader of shift. Thats a good spreader. One last thing that John Radcliffe have to say about Hunter Biden's laptop here. Hunter. Biden's laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign and I think it's clear that the American people know that not part of says so they're clearly has there's this has been looked into by the intelligence community. We know they've had the laptop for almost a year now. No, we've heard nothing about it. One CNN on CNN. If this was Trump making a claim the way Adam Schiff is right now, what would it say on the Chiron on the bottom of the screen? It would say, quote without evidence. Right. It would stay that right there on CNN. They're not doing that. Adam Schiff. Alright, we'll be joined by Michael Watson, 6 35 Gordon Shang. It's 7 35 and we are going to delve into this a lot more throughout the show. It is 5 53 brush.

"We return to intelligence reports that Russia was making bounty payments to the Taliban to kill U. S. Soldiers in Afghanistan. Next shift report. Judy. We have reported that Russian military intelligence provided financial incentives to the Taliban to target US troops and that Russian support to the Taliban was always a priority for intelligence officials and was always briefed up to senior officials. Understand more about Russia's involvement in Afghanistan and how raw intelligence becomes a product for the president and other senior officials. We turn to Douglas London, a 34 year veteran of the CIA's clandestine service. He retired last year is the CIA's chief of counterterrorism in South and Southwest Asia, which includes Afghanistan. Douglas London. Welcome to the news. Our U. S officials first talked about Russian support for the Taliban back in 2018 and 2019 reported that included bounty payments. What's your understanding of the increase in Russian support to the Taliban over the last year, too? Surely there's great interest and always has been in Russia's posture in Afghanistan. It's always a high priority collection requirement and as the press is reported, I think former and Afghanistan forces Commander General Nicholson spoken 2018. There's been evidence of Russian support financially militarily to the Taliban militants. The press reporting is pretty consistent with what we would expect that the Taliban and the Russian relationship might get strengthened as the Russians are looking to maneuver for a post US place in Afghanistan. We reported that some of the initial intelligence about these bounty payments was Maced. Was made on the discovery of money within Taliban fighters control and interviews of Taliban fighters. But that's only one piece of the puzzle. The New York Times is reporting today. The U. S. Also knew about bank transfers from Russian military intelligence to the Taliban leadership. So is that the other piece of a puzzle that intelligence community would be looking for him would need to understand what was going on. The U. S. Has always been collecting from fighters in Afghanistan trying to develop sources within the Taliban obviously has been reporting the press There's detaining interviews. After those were taken to custody by Afghan forces or temporarily by U. S. Forces. The reporting The press suggest that some of the reporting counts of those little fighters, but little fighters wouldn't be dealing directly with the Russians. Obviously, for the purpose of ops security, you wouldn't have Russians running around with bags of money dispensing it. How important was all this information? And how is it packaged? As intelligence for senior officials, including the president for intelligence comes in from a variety of means human urine intelligence that the CIA is primary on a Sicilian external collector. We've seen how NSA is taking in signals, intelligence and digital information's. There's numerous intelligences out there collecting it, and it's also together by the analyst. We're reviewing it, looking for the strength to credibility and putting it together and products that will go up to consumers. Policymakers such as the president Looking at press reporting. That suggests that there was a president's daily brief on the matter and leave on the 27th February, according to the press would make a great deal of sense because, as you recall United States in the Taliban signed the agreement on the 29th Of course, I have to mention here that the White House the administration as a whole is denying that the president was specifically briefed on the White House said today that intelligence wasn't briefed the president because there was no consensus and there was quote no strategic decision. To be made are those the only times that the president is briefed about this kind of intelligence that reflects the nature of the currently strained relationship between the White House intelligence community and also the lack of understanding and appreciation for the intelligence product. We don't provide information to the president. After we've confirmed it. We really want to use the president's daily brief to put things on the president's radar that important require his intention. We won't put it in context as well. Even if there's black of great sentence among the community that's going to be resected. The products brief to the president, so president will be advised that something significant and sensation really Russian material and financial assistance Taliban for targeting Yu's troops. Would've been brushes attention with all the proper qualifiers wouldn't wait for their consensus, and lastly, let me play you what White House spokeswoman Kayleigh Mcenany said today specifically about leakers. These air rogue intelligence officers who are imperiling our troopslives. We will not be able to get very, very likely not be able to get a consensus on this intelligence because of what was leaked to The New York Times of the I C. We're going after Trump that very possibly could be. And if that's the case, it is absolutely despicable. The director of the CIA. The director of national intelligence, the National Security Advisor have all said in the last 12 hours or so that they have an objection to the leaks themselves. Is that not a major problem? The leaking of intelligence that seems to be classified I think it's original to assume that the president in the White House is going to try to change the narrative on this leaks of great danger. They compromise sources. But think about the topic we're speaking to. We're speaking to bounties. So if the Taliban or the Russians wanted bounties, that means they want people to know that there is an incentive an award for killing Americans, even if the Russians were disguising the hand while I don't condone leaks. Under the circumstances, and I could imagine those who provided the information felt a bit of frustration that having informed principles and president of the threat From Russian incentives, financial centres and the dismissal of that intelligence might have thought that they and their comrades were being placed in harm's way. My administration that was in his concern for their interests as much as their own political interests. Douglas London Thank you very much. Pandemic is forcing innovation.

S. national security were joined by Ned price director of policy and communications at national security action and former spokesperson for the National Security Council you also spent eleven years at the CIA net thanks for being here good to be with you also with us is Daniel Drezner professor of international politics at the Fletcher school of law and diplomacy at Tufts University Daniel thanks for coming back on the show thank your net I want to start with Joseph McGuire who president trump ousted from the role of acting director last week for basically doing his job right well that's right if you read and believe what has been printed in The New York Times and Washington post this story is alleged that what sparked president trump's ire was essentially as you said Joseph McGuire authorizing one of his senior officials to go to Congress to brief on the latest with regard to election security but it's more than just doing his job and it's actually a legal requirement for the past forty years the intelligence community has been required to keep Congress up fully and currently informed of the issues that are germane to its oversight and frankly as we learned in the whistleblower case an impeachment there is nothing that is more integral to the issue of national oversight than the sanctity and security of our elections and with the New York times reported last week is that president trump grew so angry that this senior deny official the official responsible for the security of our elections actually briefed Congress on what she was legally required to do and therefore essentially terminated just McGuire from his post weeks before he was required to step down now now just to take us a quick step back what exactly does the director of national intelligence and its office to do well there's really no mold for the director of national intelligence because there've only been five individuals who have held this post in a Senate confirmed capacities since the post was created by Congress in two thousand four if you look at the legislation that creates the post there are three primary charges that this individual shall carry forward the first is to serve as the head of the intelligence community as you mentioned in your introduction there seventeen departments and agencies including the office of the director of national intelligence that form part of this intelligence community enterprise the second is to serve as the chief intelligence adviser to the president and typically what this has meant over the past hi nearly two decades fifteen or so years now is that they deny will play a key role briefing the president on what's in the P. D. B. or the president's daily brief it several times a week this individual has tended to start national security policy meetings the NSC meetings that meet in the White House situation room that the president attends this individual and they've all been men today this individual will provide intelligence brief to sort of set the table for the policy discussion that is to follow in three of the legislation I charges as individual with overseeing the implementation of the strategic agenda of the operational capabilities and objectives of the intelligence community now the five individuals a five minute with held this post of all served in this function in slightly different ways I think if you talk to intelligence veterans the model that people typically look to for how this role should be carried out is president Obama's second deny Jim clapper Jim clapper avoided some of the pitfalls of getting to operationally involved in the decisions of the CIA and the and other intelligence agencies under his purview but played the role of the coordinator of us someone who steered at the intelligence enterprise strategically at the macro level quite ably quite effectively and frankly I think that is precisely what the legislation envisioned Daniel let's talk a little about Richard we're now the new acting director Hugh has been described as a trump loyalist but it wasn't always that way was it no it wasn't apparently during the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign Grinnell tweeted a number of times about how trump was basically on set for office I believe those tweets have now been scrubbed which is understandable given the premium that trump clearly places on loyalty in terms of when he hires his national security questions so what do you make of the fact that someone who was a critic is now in this position well this is basically where did this is the the bad you have to lie in if you are a Republican that wants to serve in this administration in some ways the hiring of Grinnell with the appointment of Grinnell to the acting the on ice spot is consistent with a larger pattern in which trump has made it extremely clear that the first and frankly only criteria that he places in terms of who he's going to pick for his senior national security appointment is loyalty to the president you know there was a story that came out I believe in the times over the weekend that says that Robert Bryan whose transport National Security Advisor apparently opened some of his the National Security Council meetings by simply distributing printouts of trump's tweets in which that is supposed to be the the way in which they are going to implement policy they basically take his tweets and try to reverse engineer them you can argue to some extent Grinnell is simply an extension of the way that o'brien is running in a C. except now within the intelligence community canals also known sort of as a gadfly on Twitter when you see some **** Germany he and he still is U. S. ambassador Germany actually he was known primarily for engaging the media particularly fox news he was generally according to reports basically isolated within Germany itself now as you mentioned he has no national intelligence experience does this suggest that the president couldn't find an appropriate loyalists from within the ranks of the intelligence community I think that's a safe assumption or the other way to think about it is that essentially think of it as a Venn diagram which is you want to find simultaneously someone who is considered has sufficient background experience actually competently run D. N. I. and someone who is loyal to Donald Trump and the intersection of those two circles is either narrow or nonexistent you know there's been reports that I think at Pete Hoekstra might be the the person that trump puts forward it you could sort of make a case that Hoekstra might be qualified he was former member of Congress served on the intelligence committee at least but in some ways what what's telling is that V. D. however trump announces the permanent appointment might not even matter necessarily because at least for this year because by once he announces that appointment and is put forward to Congress it reboots the amount of time the Grinnell conserves acting D. and I'd give him another six months basically and so the instant question's going to be will trump ever be able to pick someone that actually gets passed in a confirmation there's no way Grinnell would it's telling the degree to which the Republicans I believe outside of white blondes a senator has said absolutely nothing in favor of Grinnell as the appointment and so the question becomes will trump simply sort of exploit this loophole in the vacancies act where what he does is put forward a name that has to be dealt with in terms of CENTCOM summation the Senate won't confirm them but allows Grinnell to actually retain the acting position then let's look at one of Cornell's first news the hiring of cash Patel as a top adviser a what if anything does this tell us well I think it tells us that he's gonna run the intelligence community in a way that's profoundly different from that of his predecessors one of the strengths of the intelligence community since really its inception in the late nineteen forties in the post World War two era was it's a political identity there are very few political appointees within the hierarchy of U. S. intelligence in that is for a very good reason there should be a firm dividing line a red line between intelligence and policy intelligence in the best of times is supposed to inform policy policy is never supposed to color contour what the US intelligence community presents as fact as objective truth or analysis I think what Rick Grinnell is trying to do at least what he's signaling is that he is installing individuals who don't have much experience in intelligence but what they do have they make up for in spades in ideology the these are ideologues people who have been at the side of people like Devin newness that a vice chair of the house intelligence community a staunch trump ally someone who has served at the National Security Council with president trump and I think this is emblematic of a precisely why president trump selected Rick Grinnell for this acting position he didn't want recurring out to serve as a D. and I at least not as the two thousand four legislation envisions he wants someone and really a team there who will above all protect in prize president trump's personal interests even when those class clash with the national interest I think that the analogy that I think is is useful and instructive here I think president trump wants a bill bar for the intelligence community someone who will be there at top this enterprise to do his bidding even when his betting isn't necessarily consistent with the national business so Daniel in that respect this is just an interim position but you think you can fundamentally reshape the intelligence infrastructure here oh sure I mean to to back up what net set in some ways to be fair all presidents should it want to trust their intelligence advisors you know if you're the president you want to have people you can trust in these compositions ominous is been a an art you know the and argument that the trump loyalists that making but isn't it sad the issue is is that if you're intelligent professional you are also obligated to tell the president what the intelligence actually shows regardless of whether or not that intelligence actually conflicts with something that Donald Trump has said in a tweet and we've known for the past three years the Donald Trump is not like it when his into when you get intelligence briefings that contradict his core beliefs right now ordinarily you would want the police to change you would want the president to update their priors and understand I guess I was wrong about this maybe there's some new information but instead ever since trump by hiring right now he's actually signal something rather different the intelligence community it's a warning shot across the bow all the professionals which is do not under any circumstances whatsoever passport information that contradicts the president of the United States regardless of whether factually that's correct Daniel Drezner is professor of international politics at the Fletcher school of law and diplomacy at Tufts University and net price is the director of policy and communications and national security action and a former spokesperson for the National Security Council thank you both for joining us thank you thank you support for KQ weedy this afternoon comes from the California academy.

"The Republicans put out to their impeachment to report yesterday and said quote the Democrats impeachment inquiry is not the organic growth of serious misconduct it is an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system corn in the Wall Street journal in making their case Republicans say the Democrats are relying on here say motivated by anger towards a president who's out of the box diplomacy simply made bureaucrats uncomfortable and overlooking that Mr trump support for providing Ukraine with lethal defensive weaponry made him a stronger ally of Ukraine then even his predecessor was Democrats report must come out today I thought it was that was coming out yesterday they were just come on Adam shifts memo last week was essentially that it would be it would come out the Democrats were report will come out early this week so I don't know I I guess I'd have my my my and in my mind I was set on Tuesday I don't know if it is today but the fact that they're essentially going to be getting back to work and then you have the Judiciary Committee nab the Nadler shows starting tomorrow but I don't know I'm not sure I don't need the I'm assuming though to be today or tomorrow likely today probably to lead in to the Judiciary Committee which which is a nothing they have the right they've got four witnesses who witnessed nothing the witnesses are simply law professors giving their opinions on the history of impeachment and impeachment Jonathan Turley one of those but apparently Adam Schiff of the Democrats haven't agreed to call Adam Schiff is the Republicans wanted to to do so again it's going no where all the reports out yesterday is that the Democrats now want to expand it beyond Ukraine the articles of impeachment beyond Ukraine there is the idea that they're looking to bring back obstruction of justice from Russia collusion and as I asked Eric earlier on are they just trying to stall are they trying to stall of the trying to expand this thing out what is the plan of the Democrats every time they hold any type of public hearing any time they bring a witness who supposedly has a bomb shell it is a blast every time the road the egg should be the dice and Republicans every time the Democrats get out there and try to promote or have some type of bomb shell it works against them and it has from day one so it's going to be interesting to see what they do this week but don't expect anything from the Judiciary Committee because it's just it's not going to be there but the house Republicans report basically breaks down well we have said many times what's the high crime in what's the treason what's the bribery what's the high crime and misdemeanor the breath by the way have you heard bribery much anymore as bribery been moved back to the back burner no I I is that right no not that disappear they're on to something else they're on their back to collision is it abuse of power is that what is going to is going to be abuse of power I don't know I mean with all that could be collusion a day they could be as I'm going back to work in the starting over we've been there we've done that but it is again the leapfrogging of of being on one thing and then over to another and we'll see what kind of terminology what kind of words are used in that report the Democrats report from the US of the of the house intelligence community intelligence the I'm I I can't wait to I was gonna say I'll steal from David Limbaugh here I can't wait to not watch the house Judiciary it breaks because I just don't know where they were they go out of the starting Wednesday starting tomorrow and Nadler's so incompetent frankly I hear some Republican memo the four key pieces of evidence against the democratic narrative this arms are a Carter dot com number one the July twenty fifth call summary the best evidence of the conversation and shows no conditions or evidence of pressure president so Lynskey the alleged victim I am president trump have both said there was no pressure on the call Zelinsky by the way came out over the weekend or was it yesterday over the weekend Sunday that he came out and said it again yeah right there's no pressure Ukrainian government was not aware of a hold on U. S. security assistance at the time of the phone call and president trump met Ukrainian president and assistance slowed the Ukraine in September of twenty nineteen these all occurred without Ukraine investigating president trump's political rivals yeah so like I said of if I don't know I just I don't know where they go from here to try to build more support they can go and commit political suicide if they wish but it does bring up again you know we were off for few days last week because of the thanksgiving holiday has it changed at all what's the worst route for them to take is it just to keep this thing going which doesn't seem like they're doing because they seem to have accelerated that timeline by getting this Judiciary Committee hearing which I believe outside of Turley they're gonna get probably the three other ones like I could be wrong on this but I they're the ones picking the witnesses Turley isn't going to go along with that as we all know home so maybe that's the one witness who won't but I can see the the I wouldn't be surprised if you heard the legal narrative is well are you really can impeach for any reason the possible and this truck guys been troubling in some ways so we understand the justification of it right and sold they believe some Democrats believe that some of these constitutional so called experts most the time are not experts by the way then they can hide behind their cover I don't see it I don't I don't believe that because the new cycle changes so quickly so if they bring these people in now and they vote for impeachment two weeks from now nobody is ever going to remember that we got the cover from this law professor I wasn't going to do it until this law professor said it yeah try that in a toss up district and see if the independent will say well as long as an Ivy League professors said it's impeachable well then that justifies it I just don't see it now I I I don't I I wonder if they're going through the motions to accelerate to add to it some point get to the the the end and say well you know we the committees you know because the policy basically said well what the committees you know go through their process and do you just go through the motions and at the end of it say look everybody agrees that this was out of line but they didn't cooperated and providing us witnesses clearly the president is hiding something because they didn't offer up the witnesses they didn't give us anything that level of the non cooperation rises to the extent of being we believe despicable behavior that is that that should not be should not occur in that office right out right here's here's my scenario just a okay this pure speculation on but did you sherry committee sends everything to Nancy Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi makes the announcement and therefore she gets the blame from the radical left but in the middle of next year announces she's not going to run for speaker again and she plans on retiring from her seat yeah could be and that's the person who gets the blame right is hello see but it's really not blame because you have a ton of Democrats and they're going thank goodness well I mean you remember when Barney Frank was on C. and I've just think about this the other day he was on CNBC and then he made the stupid comment the lie that no I've always encourage people not to buy but instead right after he after all of our yeah and the whole subprime mortgage thing over the years never need never cafe and then and then you know eventually I mean he was like oh okay well I won't be running again in that but you do you could I think you could see something like that from hi Nancy Pelosi and frankly if she decides to retire think about this if if they see internals that show that there's a great likelihood that president trump would be reelected does she want to do another four years Ford or would she like to I mean why would she rather just bow out and get out and take the hit for the the party because she's not look by the far left she's not the point anymore remember she and Diane Feinstein have been called out repeatedly by the by the new far left so she's not really leaving the party she knows that nothing has changed my mind in that I feel that the Democrats do not want the the of a significant portion of the party does not want to have a vote and have it fail and they also don't want to have a vote and have it succeed because then the complete control of the process is given to Lindsey Graham and that's the last thing that they want don't handed to the Republican story play this thing out in an election year in and show it for all of its faults and again this is just a gut feeling that just again I could be wrong in this I should be I normally don't do this because everything is based on the evidence but it's just been something that's been sticking with me here for the last couple of days I just have this feeling that the Democrats and I mean even Liberal Democrats want this to go away because it's been sold poorly handled by Adam ship that they see this loss of independence and even liberals are scared and they just want this thing to go away that and I just I don't get I don't get the same sense of outrage that you had even for Mahler that you even had a month ago here maybe it's just maybe it's just the holidays maybe I'm running this maybe my guts reading this completely wrong but I just the last couple of days I went they don't seem to be really passionate about this not even like they were two weeks ago number four this whole thing began it's like the two weeks of the witnesses that were so bad and sent independence in the complete opposite direction yeah just took all the air out of there impeachment balloon well when Adam Schiff is saying we'll have to consult our constituents and our colleagues and he says it twice on the Sunday morning news show and he says that basically the same thing in the end and the and the closing of that testimony in his committee I think the writing's on the wall and they don't have the confidence they believe that it's not going well for them and I mean beyond the thirty or forty that are in those moderate districts that are questionable could they have seen some you know push back in other districts where they're seeing again all right this could we believe there could be a trend beyond that thirty to forty districts could they be below two hundred right now and the soft head count and let me ask you this with the total obsession on everything trump which it still is nobody's talking about the democratic primary nobody except making fun of Biden an occasional you know you know Bloomberg blurbs right nobody's paying attention to the democratic primary nobody except making fun of it in popular culture nobody's taking it seriously right and so I really wonder what the Democrats and.

"Breaking news now. Here's Sean Hannity. All right. We have more huge development says it relates to the deep state abuse of power corruption scandal. Nord by the media, I let me say, what Samantha power said and James Clapper said that you just heard there is totally completely dishonest in as much as all of the things they're talking about involving Russia. It all happened on their watch. And we know that the former house intelligence community chairman, Devin, newness, warn them any warn them repeatedly. He warned the behind the scenes he warned him in the Washington Times, early twenty fourteen that the Russians had planned all of this chaos creation around the two thousand sixteen election. They did nothing. And then, of course, they ignored Hillary Clinton's dirty bought and paid for Russian dossier by a foreign agent, which we now know was full of Russian misinformation and lies and news to influence the American people before the election, it was spread by members. In the intelligence community. And then later uses the bulk of information as it is, as, as quote something that was verified when it never could be verified. It was false. Not even still himself stands behind it or the application, as filed the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, and the Trump presidency. Now, we told you about the big story from our friends over at the American Center for lawn Justice earlier in the week. And that is executive order, twelve triple three. Why was there this feeding frenzy an absolute frenzy to get seventeen agencies access to the type of intelligence for the prior eight years in their years? And the Obama years that only three agencies would have access for. Well, I think there's obvious reasons for that. Now, we have some very interesting new information about X U N ambassador. Samantha power. Thanks again to our friends at the American Center for law and Justice. What we're finding our documents that have been on earth by them. And apparently Samantha power nothing about this. Samantha power UN ambassador, and this was back like the executive order, twelve three three three we were talking about it in two thousand seventeen anyway. The now we know that she was involved in this unmasking and literally up to her eyeballs we had a three hundred and fifty percent increase in masking, after Trump stunned the world win the election, you know, powers and those emailing her were I am discouraged. I am frightened electing a right wing, president is something but such a morally repugnant. Bully read November twenty sixteen Email to power that had the name of the sender redacted by the State Department that Email also referred to Steve Bannon, as an avowed racist and predicting the worst is coming, and by the way, no evidence in the released documents that power responded or whatever or chest is, but there is ample evidence that ching. Trump asking why would there be a three hundred and fifty percent increase in on masking by the UN ambassador? Jay seculow is the chief counsel for the American Center for law Justice counsel to the president as well. All right. Tell us what you've found in these emails. Well, when I found was, you know, sheer political panic evidenced in Samantha Powers' emails, showing that, again, the fix was in against the incoming administration even before the forty fifth president was sworn in to office, and I say that we again, these were lawsuits that you pile under the freedom of information act you go to court, and then you get documents released, we're finally getting documents and able to go through these documents and you have this Samantha Powers' UN ambassador, why she was even involved in unmasking is a is a real question. But you got hundreds of unmasking about three hundred in her case alone, but at three hundred and fifty percent increase in two thousand sixteen and that raises very troubling questions and, and then you see. So you have this going remember context here. We're now able to put context. Into this, you mentioned the information we got the other day regarding executive order twelve three three three. So we, we know that comes in shortly after this Email exchange that we've now got access to we know about crossfire hurricane starting in two thousand sixteen. So all of this is in play culminating in a new president being sworn in. So what did they say? Well, one of the ideas that she needs maximum amplification for her message. Okay. What's her message is that we need to move out on sixty minutes to seek maximum identification. And then to the producer of sixty minutes, she writes, we're still reeling as you might imagine notwithstanding this Tuesday's results, have given us even a greater sense of urgency to get our work done in the last few months. Seventy good long days left. So rather than coordinating with an incoming administration, which is the normal practice in the United States. You have this, you know, like I say political panic setting in where they're trying to not only undo what the incoming minister. Ration- may may put in place, but really kind of sabotaging that before it even starts, and you, you go to this again. Another one from anthropology, this is director of policy planning at the department of state. She writes ward, help us all. How are you holding up and below in that you talked about an article is just one of the many grim things we have to look forward to? And this is again in reference to statements that the president-elect was been making. So look, they're entitled to their opinion. What you've got though is an intentional act. But I think is home Nateing ultimately within twelve three three three so I think all ties into that, were they get in this whole intelligence sharing. But it just shows you the nature of the bias here was, you know, in the United States, a win elections you lose elections, and that's it. And then you have an incoming administration here it is the betryal that there's a reason we now know certain things happen. We know they rigged Hillary's investigation, she wouldn't have been the candidate if they didn't rig it and save her. Because the evidence is so overwhelming sewing controversial, and a one and a half, my friend, Alan Dershowitz on a Mike, you can't even defend your friends the Clintons divided this. You know, you couldn't get me out of jail. But what's, so what's so interesting is now that we look at these things in retrospect, and now that we know that spying real spying. Not only abroad, but through the use of a phony, Russian disinformation, killary, Clinton bought and paid for dossier that the author does in standby, but we know they spied internally on the Trump campaign, the transition, they spied on the presidency of Donald Trump from very early on. And now you know, we have executive order twelve three three and we see the urgency by which they were trying to get this passed in the final days that tells me that they knew at that point that there was a paper trail, and that they were in trouble. I think that's absolutely correct. And then you've got the John Brennan bite, where he said, if it wasn't for the actions President Obama took this is very important. You would not have had the appointment of a special counsel. I mean think about that for a moment. What Brennan actually said, if it wasn't for the actions, put in place by President Obama, you would not have had an appointment of a special counsel that is a very dramatic statement. And then we know all of these other issues now all coming to light all coming into focus as to what was actually a play here and actually what was going on. I will take a break more with Jay secular chief counsel American Center for law and Justice counsel to the president. James comey. You have the right to remain silent and might want to use it. This is the Sean Hannity show. Smoking is not about politics. It's about people. There are thirty four million Americans that smoke for me. Joel was a game changer because you switch to jewel. It's simple. It's satisfying and no more. Smell. I watch people all the time they run outside in the freezing. Cold can be practicing their cigarette. Well,.

"Solutions for America. remember back when our intelligence community came out with their statement saying what russia had done this was a huge bombshell and it was i think entirely appropriate that the intelligence community come out with that bombshell because of the ways in which when prisoner bama spoke to to any issue really there was such a large constituency people who just wanted to say and do the opposite of whatever you wanted to say and do and so since it was a technical finding with a strong evidentiary basis when they came out we expected people from both parties to jump up and down and and be as seems with this as we were within the executive branch i used to when i was in the security council talk a lot about how i had just entered upside down land you know that was up was down was black was white and vice versa and then little did i know that my own country in my own president would would in effect create and inhabit his own upside down land anderson i don't think it's come up very much before and i'm alluding now to the president's criticism appraisal bomber for all that he did or didn't do before he left office with respect to the russian meddling if it weren't for president obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are unfolding today notably special counsel muller's investigation bomber is responsible and it was he who pass us to do that community in the first place i think it's an important point when it comes to critiquing bottle former president obama's ambassador to the united nations samantha powers' has testified that others made unmasking requests in her name tray gouty has said that on fox news or testimony is that they may be undermined aim but i did not make those requests if that happened if people usurp the thirty to request unmasking would that concern you director clapper I know how that would happen. because you only way you can make an amassing request authorize access to other report in question in the first place quite how that would work also tell you that it was not a requirement that people who asked for unmasking threw me for the approving would be the originate original collecting agency which normally would be an assay breaking news now here's sean hannity all right we have more huge development says it relates to the deep state abuse of power corruption scandal nord by the media i let me say what samantha power said and james clapper said that you just heard there is totally completely honest in his much as all of the things they're talking about involving russia it all happened on their watch and we know that the former house intelligence community chairman devin newness warn them any warn them repeatedly he warned the behind the scenes he warned him in the washington times early twenty fourteen that the russians had planned all of this chaos creation around the twenty sixteen election they did nothing and then of course they ignored hillary clinton's dirty bought and paid for russian dossier by foreign agent which we now know was full of russian misinformation and lies and news to influence the american people before the election zoa spread by members in the intelligence community and then later uses the bulk of information as it is as as quote something that was verified when it never could be verified it was false not even still himself stands behind it or application is fine on the trump campaign the trump transition and the trump presidency now we told you about the big story from our friends over at the american center for lawn just as earlier in the week and that is executive order twelve triple three why was there this feeding frenzy an absolute frenzy to get seventeen agencies access to the type of intelligence that for the prior eight years.

As chairman of the committee, which alone in the house of representatives has the obligation and authority to provide affective oversight of the US intelligence community as such we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility. Now Republicans are now demanding his immediate resignation as chairman now it was shift that led the way that oh, well, Devin Nunes went to the White House has got to recuse himself Nunez. Did he shouldn't have had to by the way after it was looked at they've found nothing. So no matter what no matter what the FBI report or the FBI investigation showed nothing no collusion. After nine months. No matter what the house intelligence community found or the bipartisan Senate intelligence community founding doesn't care. Now, the Muller report finding the same thing our lease the report we're going to find one sentence in there that was just gonna be damning. They're all trying to get back some credibility. All lied. They said with certainty collusion, collusion collusion's Russia. Russia didn't happen. You know, the headline in the political today is Muller swiftly closes up. Shop. Apparently Democrats are furious. At that prospect. Anyway, the docket sheet hanging outside of federal courtroom on Wednesday listed, Robert Muller's. Prosecutors nowhere to be found and in a matter of days, the special counsel is now downshifted from investigating to managerial tasks involved in packing up papers, disbanding staff handing off cases and everything left to argue in court like Wednesday's hearing involving some foreign company fighting a Muller subpoena has been given to career prosecutors and permanent offices now like wha what happened. Well, he made his decision, and they don't like it. Well, it's three hundred plus pages. How many of those pages are index pages? I wonder. Borrowed too, congress gave exactly and even quoted what the report said, no collusion. Within an instant, basically, you had Rosenstein number rod Rosenstein sign the fourth visor worn application the third renewal. And they signed on now. No obstruction.

And I'm sure this merry band of democratic donors the Andrew Weisman on that team, whatever Devon Nunez is going to be releasing criminal referrals as early as next week multiple referrals on a number of different crimes, including leaking classified information as part of the investigation into the misconduct of the Justice department and the FBI, oh, wait until I'm very interested to see what Horowitz comes up with the Newburgh comes up with. I don't know what it's going to be. But we know we know those story on FIS up. Rand Paul said, this is good for him. That he has his sources putting John Brennan at the center of the Russia gate conspiracy. And he said that he's uncovered new information and that citing a high level source rand Paul charged in a Twitter post yesterday that anti Xie director Brennan insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier will be included in classified intelligence community report of in Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen elections. That ultimately lend credibility to the phony dossier. He wants now Brennan testify under oath immediately. Why is he still working fake news CNN? Why is Clapper still let tinfoil hat conspiracy theory TV MSNBC? I want to see and Paul is saying that the hoax should focus on Obama while we learned that last week with the struck and page. Behind closed door interviews. Now, the whole issue of ship is hitting the fan. Pun intended to resign now. We do have great people that are doing amazing work, and I will tell you one of them is a guy by the name. We now know Doug Collins Collins is the one that got us the Bruce or closed door. Testimony is going to be on with us tomorrow. I got us the Lisa page. Testimony. Got is the struck testimony. He got us. The McCain aide testimony. Well, we got more out of him today. And I'm glad we did. And I'm glad he's out there. And this time it's Nellie or who worked for fusion GPS among other things we learned today that Nellie your remember? Her husband was the fourth highest ranking member in the department of Justice before his to demotions met with Christopher Steele. The very day before the FBI launched their Trump Russia investigation. Wow. That's unbelievable now. Remember steel was later fired for lying leaky. And then steal later on in an interrogatory wouldn't stand by his own dossier, which means that dossier was unverified able they met at the Mayflower Hotel and the transcript just released today shows that now your met with steel three times the last of which was delight thirtieth twenty sixteen the day before at least we're told the FBI initiated a counterintelligence investigation into links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. It is believed Peter Struck side New Yorker that launched the inquiry. You know, the guy that just wrote the exoneration of Hillary in may interviewed her in on July. Second 2016 exoneration was already written gross negligence taken out any reference to foreign entities hacking. Her server taken out. Anyway. Her husband, Bruce, or apparently, she working for Glenn Simpson. Abusing GPS who got the funneled money from Hillary and the DNC money that she was controlling was up to our eyeballs in all of this. Anyway, she said she learned for the first time steel also worked a fusion GPS. She said she understands that Steele was trying to conveyed or a husband is concerned about the information regarding Trump believe she saw at least one page of the so-called Trump dossier hoping that it would make its way to the FBI. She said by understanding was Christopher Steele was hoping that Bruce would put on a word with the FBI to follow up on the information in some way. And she said when asked if words like investigation enquiry were brought up during the discussion the transcript reveals her research on connections between Russia and President Trump and the Trump family and Trump associates while she worked fusion GPS, she declined to answer most questions about her husband. Now, remember, we now know from notes memos Bruce poor after Steele was fired for lying and leaking. Well, Christopher Steele was still in contact with Bruce or asking Bruce order to pass on information to Robert Muller long after he's fired anyway to one hundred and thirty seven pages the transcript released today from October in front of a joint session of the House Judiciary committee in the house oversight committees. And most of the testimony focuses on her time, a fusion GPS and their relationship with the DOJ, but Bruce or met with Christopher Steele one day before struck open the investigation, but Chris Broussard did tell everybody in the FBI the truth in August, the twenty sixteen that in fact, Hillary paid for it. And that still hates Trump. And none of it's verified that didn't stop anybody. From using it as the Grassley grand memo tells us the bulk of information. As it relates to the FIS application. So when you look at it, and there's a couple of great synopsis is out there one is the Washington Examiner, and and the number of other places, but. You know, what we're seeing is. Mark meadows tweeting out, Bruce or confirmed in his interview today after the FBI terminated their relationship with Christopher Steele that the FBI privately reengaged with him. Think about the gig that Christopher Steele got he's got he's getting paid by the FBI Hillary Clinton the DNC, which is Clinton controlling the money of and by a Russian oligarch. Not a bad gig to get paid for one dossier that you can't even stand by when questioned under oath. I have no idea if it's true. That's pretty amazing to me. And as I look through the the rest of all of this gets pretty damning. That Bruce wars white meeting with Christopher Steele the very day before the launching of the Trump Russia investigation, her working for fusion GPS meeting at the Mayflower Hotel. By the way, one of. President Truman by the way described by him as Washington second best address Kennedy wants kept an apartment apartment allegedly and a mistress there, and that's where governor Spitzer used an assumed name to book roommate seventy one and meet client. What was it nine or fifteen or whatever the client number was? And anyway, so we see that she she did all that research connecting rush Russia and President Trump the Trump family Trump associates in. Oh, and she said in this one hundred and thirty seven page transcript, thus far I have released four transcripts of interviews. This is Doug Collins, by the way. You know about apparent wrongdoing at the FBI in department of Justice. This is the fifth. The American people deserve transparency, they deserve to know what transpired at the highest levels of the government, and the testimony focused as I said on on these main things now they met a total of three times the last was the day before the FBI initiated the counterintelligence investigation. Now that meeting the Mayflower Nellie ORF set. Her husband was in attendance, along with an unknown associated steal. Okay. So that means her department of Justice husband and her colluding together to me. That needs to be thoroughly vetted and. You know, she she saying she learned for the first time that steel were for fusion GPS. She said she understood that Steele was trying to convey to her husband, basically advancing the lie because when push came to shove steel backed off his dossier as fast as he could. Pretty amazing. And then when or was hired by fusion GPS, she knew her husband was working at the DOJ. That's a problem as well. Jordan asked Jim Jordan. Did he at the time? He hired you that your husband? Did he know that he your husband worked for the DOJ? Yeah. And she said that her work focused specifically on issues related to then candidate Trump and ties to Russia and she worked on a project looking into the relationship with Trump and organized crime Russian organized crime. Looking at the relationship with Trump. Wow. She said she wrote it up and reports emailed them, the fusion GPS or implied that fusion GPS was leaking the research to the media some of the material appeared in the press. I don't know what their relationship is with the press. Citing marital privilege during the interview. She refused to answer most questions about her husband. At one point. She was asked did he ever? Did you ever put information on a flash drive and give it to someone other than fusion GPS? She said, yes. All right. Well, who did you give it to? And anyway, senior counsel without oversight committee said other than Bruce or your husband, no one. So she.

"The house to look into because they have violated so many areas of the rule of law and decorum in our society. Yes. He mentioned house of cars. What does it say that Kevin Spacey has been held to account the fictional president? But. Are we actually going to where are you on the on the optimism scale that we will hold this other fictional president to account a few weeks ago? I was I was pushing impeachment because I thought it was time to get all of this off of cable news. Yeah. Get it into congress for hearing. So we can start educating the American people about what's happening. Watching the Democrats this week. They have really stepped their game up right for from the House Judiciary, issuing Eighty-one documentary requests. Yeah. To Adam Schiff and the house intelligence community. Hiring the prosecutor who has a background in Russian money laundering, oddly, right? Right. Sedans, again, the ways and means committee is going to go after his tax returns. And so we are starting to see the Democrats. And this is what the voters voted for in November. We want to see some oversight. And we want to see Justice. We've watched this president time and time again obstruct the Russian investigation. I mean, I think the New York Times put out a stat recently. He has attacked the Russian investigation over eleven hundred time. Yeah. As you do when you're innocent. Yeah. Also, just their position has become untenable. When you when you hear them, you know, it's it's no collusion witch hunt. And then all of a sudden, you heard recently that someone one of his lawyers said that they're going to have a rebuttal report to the Mola. Oh, yeah. The second. I thought why is there a rebuttal report? If there's no collusion. Why? Is there a rebuttal port if there's no obstruction? Yeah. Why do you need to do a rebuttal for? There's nothing wrong. He's just going to be cleared entirely. Obviously, they take like positions that just don't match up, and it just all goes back to the same thing is because when when crooks lie they're lying to cover up their crimes. Yeah. Right. Yeah. So Tom, Barack personal friend of Trump who chaired the inaugural says he will commit a communicate or cooperate with the House Judiciary, Sean Spicer says he will cooperate because he has nothing to hide. Boy I- questions. How many how many like little Debbie cakes? He was hiding Justin that podium just saying a lot of stress eating going on. I wanna know everything. Okay. One more Steve Cohen yesterday. We were elected and large numbers to oversight over oversight of this administration provide oversight which has been missing for two years, and that's gonna get into all these allegations. At all these facts situations and bring it out to the public's attention of just what this administration spent up to. Yeah. Well, so we will see this is as you say this is what it'd be because we keep saying this is their job. This is in the constitution. What oversight looks like it? And if and if the Republicans had done their job, right, then we wouldn't have had maybe they wouldn't have had the issue, so many document requests. But this president has had zero oversight. It's a different game now, and and Malcolm Nance hit square on the head last hour is we continue to lose. We don't the American people are actually more progressive. Right. The Medicare for all to. You know to climate change. But we lose the argument when it come the political argument. It's just that the Republicans they lie they persuade alcs news and just li- li- li- and we've got to start stepping up to them. Yeah. And calling it out. Yeah. Anything's going to seem like overreach compared to the complicity and defense and trees outweigh trees. And really that. The Republicans have been engaged Galilee, actively not done oversight. They have actively help to to conspired to hide absolutely in Brooklyn. Can we just talk about the difference between Hillary Clinton Donald Trump because when Hillary Clinton was under investigation? She wasn't calling the media. She was attacking the press the enemy of the American parole. She wasn't attacking the FBI. She testified for eleven hours. Yeah. Right. In public. Trump won't even won't even meet with Muller scared. What a different path Donald Trump has chosen the path of a guilty, man. Yeah. Right. Yeah. I'm glad I wasn't drinking coffee when you said the difference between Hillary Trump's. It's true. I mean, it it is I have to say, I, you know, it is sad to me that she's an I mean, and I get it why she wouldn't want to run again. Dear Jesus has not done enough to her. But the fact that she is the legitimate president. And she's the one person she can't again. You know? I mean, it just is I think at the end of the day when all of this has done a lot of this. I have said you everybody line up one of the timing kiss for pantsuit,.

"And it's only logical. It's only fair for him to have these to do a complete investigation of censor. How worried would you be if you're the president, and you don't have an ally. Like, Devin Nunes, running the house intelligence community anymore. Look, I mean this for the president this comes down to two things number one impeachment and the house is going to do with the house is going to do the Senate will never at least given the current state of play right now is not is not gonna come anywhere close to impeach in the present the second is simply things that he they they can do to to harass the president. And this is one of those harassment things. I mean, it's not going to touch the president it. There are people that may have said things that under oath that that that turned out to be wrong. Again. That's that doesn't that doesn't really do anything other than create more more more smoke, but no real fire for the president here since you the Democrats in the house should be cautious on how they approach approach the prospect impeachment. And we've talked about this before I internet's aren't going to stick with the congressman Gerry Connolly, who's now in the majority of the house oversight committee, and he says he's already seen enough just with the president being an unindicted co-conspirator in the. The Coen file, look, I mean, Donald Trump is obviously extremely unpopular with the base of the of the Democratic Party. And so it's understandable that there are people who want him out of office any way possible, and you know, are letting their passion probably get a little ahead of themselves and not considering the kind of blowback that can come from these kinds of actions. And we've we've seen this in history when there has been overreach. So I think the position that Nancy Pelosi is staked out which is really the position of the Democratic Party at this point.
