Dale Wilcox: Getting to Know the Immigration Reform Law Institute

"All right, hey everybody. Great show today. One of the biggest problems we've got going on right now and it's the least reported problem that we have right now is the problem we're having on the border. Our southern border. Well, I guess it depends on if it's a problem depending on your perspective because on Dallas, not a it's not a problem to the Biden administration. In fact, the Biden administration, if you judge by vice president Harris, has no idea where the southern border is, much less wanting to fix it. As ranking member of the House judiciary committee and being on that committee for a long time, our primary focus in our committee was immigration law and I can tell you that what's going on on the border right now is a travesty. What is happening is the national security risk and we are in we've got to fix this. And the mainstream media will not talk about this. We're going to have a chance to talk today about our immigration problem and I'm excited to have Dale Wilcox from here from immigration reform law institute.

Who Is Ketanji Brown Jackson? A Closer Look at Biden's SCOTUS Nominee

"Alex from Ohio says Charlie, can you explain or elaborate on Joe Biden's Supreme Court pick? So in the midst of all this, as Ukraine is being invaded and we've spent a considerable amount of warranted time on that, by the way, there's a lot happening in our own country that we can not and should not lose sight of. So Joe Biden in the midst of all this suspiciously decides that just announce his Supreme Court pick while all this is happening. And so it is a woman in black woman as he promised by the name of catan G Brown, Jackson. And so far, there are many people that are very happy about this. On the left, the Fox News dot com article says katangi Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court delights progressives. She was a public defender, and we're diving into her background. She's described as a rather progressive individual. We don't have a lot of evidence to show that yet, I'm sure it's there, but the media is not really diving into her, but I guarantee you in the next coming days and weeks, there will be oppo dump after oppo dump of everything that she has said before. But here's a couple right here. In 2019, she used the Russian collusion hoax as an excuse to justify mandating that former White House counsel Don McCann testify before the House judiciary committee. More than two decades ago, Breyer apprenticed that Breyer pendas penned an amicus brief for the national abortion rights league, Nero, and other organizations that killed babies in the womb. In support of a Democrat backed law that prevented pro life protesters from congregating outside abortion facilities. Continues, Cory bush, who is a radical anti American leftist from Missouri, says this quote 233 years. That's how long we have waited to have a black woman nominated the Supreme Court. Judge katangi Brown, Jackson is a form of public defender with a record of standing up for justice. There are no words to describe how my soul is moved by witnessing her nomination. Now let's just stop here. First of all, what is a woman? I want to ask Cory bush, what is a woman? Why does it matter? I thought womanhood is complete, according to Cory book, men can become pregnant. The same people that are celebrating Brown Jackson coming to the Supreme Court should remind themselves that clarence Thomas is also on the Supreme Court, one of only two black men if I remember correctly, two black men ever to serve on the United States Supreme Court yet it's complete silence from the left on that interesting.

He goes on to say put public reporting suggests that you may have also have information about meetings with White House officials and the then president in November and December of 2020, and early January 2021, about the strategies for overturning the results of the 2020 election. We'd also like to ask you about any discussions involving the possibility of presidential pardons for individuals involved in any aspect of January 6th or of the planning of January 6th.

The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict

"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat. He said, quote, this heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice.

AG Garland Won't Say if He Sought Ethics Guidance Regarding Ties to Son-in-Law's CRT-Promoting Company

"Apparently there's a company. That Merrick Garland's son in law is part of or runs or works for that advocate, critical race theory. What's the name of the company guys I'm drawing a blank? I want to say Polaroid. It's not Polaroid. It's it starts with a pee, I think. Say it out loud, Derrick, what? Think this pattern. Panorama, that's what it is. Yeah, it is. It's panorama. So panorama is a company that Merrick Garland's son in law works for and so Merrick Garland is sicking the FBI on parents who are ostensibly challenging the business model of Merrick Garland's son in law. So yesterday, as the AG was appearing before the House judiciary committee, House judiciary committee member Mike Johnson congressman from Louisiana had this unbelievable exchange with Merrick Garland who immediately turned into like a stepford wife, he was like a robot. He started going to this talking point about this memorandum set. He's talking about the memo well you got to hear this. Did you excuse me? Did you seek ethics counsel before you issued a letter that directly relates to the financial interest of your family? Yes or no? This memorandum does not relate to the financial interests of anyone. It's I take that as a no. I take that as a no. Memorandum is against violence and threats of violence. Will you mister attorney general? Will you commit to having the appropriate ethics design the review the case and make the results public? This memorandum is aimed at violence and threats of violence. I understand you're talking point, you're not answering my question, mister attorney general. With all due respect, will you submit to an ethics review of this matter? Yes or no? There's no company in America or hopefully no law abiding citizen in America who believes that threats of violence should not be prevented. There are no conflicts of interest that anyone could have. According to you, but with due respect, that's the purpose of the federal regulation. We need objective third parties to review our activities. You don't get to make that decision yourself. It doesn't matter. You're the top, you're the chief law enforcement of this country. This raises questions in the minds of millions of Americans in your impartiality is being called into question. Why would you not submit to a simple ethics review of that? I am exquisitely aware of the ethics requirements. But you're not following them. I have followed them and lived with them for the last 25 years. Did you seek an ethics review of this or not? I want to say again, there are no conflicts of interest involved when the Justice Department. Okay, okay. According to you, I got that. I'm not trying to be distracted, but you are not respecting our rules, our constitutional norms and the federal law that directly applies to your

Merrick Garland Is the Current Hired Gun of the Craven Ruling Class

"Today, Merrick Garland is doing a hearing in front of the House judiciary committee. Merrick Garland is being asked certain questions that he doesn't even know the specifics of what he does his attorney general is exactly what bob Mueller did when he was the appointment, where they have these elderly kind of elderly old men that have had long resumes and careers, Merrick Garland being a federal judge, bob Mueller, think bubble around the FBI, and he's something like that. And then they use them as puppets and they manipulate them to wage domestic war on us. Merrick Garland, you have to understand what you're dealing with here. Is the current hired gun of the craven ruling class. Merrick Garland is the placeholder of all of the entrenched interests. Merrick Garland oversees the department that spied on Donald Trump illegally oversees the department that had Peter struck and Lisa page. James Comey, Merrick Garland is the placeholder unelected by the way no one showed up in huge numbers to go elect Merrick Garland to be able to write letters to say to the national school board to acknowledge the letter from the national school board association, say, you know what? We need to go use the FBI the Department of Justice to go after moms and dads that are showing up in big numbers to school board meetings. Now, Republicans are doing their job here by overseeing Merrick Garland. They're conducting oversight. And a lot of this is just words. But Merrick Garland is not used to being challenged like this. I listen to some of the hearing this morning and I could tell you this is a man who just like bob Mueller is only a placeholder and is being used and manipulated by other treacherous and other malevolent interests. To try to weaponize the federal government in the United States.

Rep. Jim Jordan on the Implications of Big Tech Breakup Bills

"Break up hills, which aren't those at all Like you said. They're just using that to get us on board. My fear is they're going to take that from the private sector and now enshrined that with government regulators who are going to use these big tech break up bills to then use the power of government to make sure private companies out there. Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline E on the House student Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee. Do you think she really wants to make sure that that these big tech platforms don't censor Dan Bongino? So that's what this is all all about. I mean, and you're exactly right. The one of the other empty stairs chairs is, um, Democrat is Becca Slaughter, and she has said, we should use anti trust laws to stop systemic racism. What? So you're that's where they want to go with this, And that's what I fear. Let's do this. Let's let's let's change checks in 2 30 so that you take away their liability protection and let's break them up. Let's break him up. Yeah, but you've got to make sure they don't get this liability protection. So not not make not make this union between big government and big tech so they can further harm us.

Republican Rep. Chip Roy uses hearing on anti-Asian discrimination to 'glorify lynching' and criticize China

"A pre scheduled hearing today, focusing on hate crimes across our country, But of course, in light of the shootings in Atlanta. Those attacks against Asian Americans became front and center during the hearing, Republican Congressman Schiff Roy of Texas, arguing that all Americans deserve protection, and during his remarks, he invoked a Texas saying that critics claim celebrates the idea of lynching. Here's what he said. Going on. Appreciate are gathering here today. It's obviously a new important subject matter. Um, and to be clear all Americans deserve protection and to live in a free and secure society with the fundamental nature of what we expect out of government, right. Secure the blessings of liberty, as we say in the Constitution, United States, um The victims of race based violence, and their families deserve justice. And that's the case what we're talking about here with the tragedy what we just saw her and Atlanta, Georgia. I would also suggest that the victims of cartels moving illegal aliens deserve justice, the American citizens in South Texas. They're getting absolutely decimated by what's happening. Our southern border deserve justice. The victims of Riding a looting in the streets last week. Businesses closed Burn lime started last summer. Deserve justice Way believe in justice, right? There's an old saying in Texas about, you know, find the all the roof in Texas and get a taller tree. You know, we take justice very seriously, and we ought to do that round up the bad guys. That's what we believe. Um, my concern about this hearing is that it seems to want to venture into the policing of rhetoric in a free society free speech, um and away from the rule of law and taking out bad guys. And as a former federal prosecutor, I'm kind of predisposing wired to want to go take out bad guys. And that's bad guys of all colors as bad guys of all persuasions. That's bad guys targeting people for all different reasons, and I think we need t be mindful of that. And so now we're talking about whether talking about China Chai calms the Chinese Communist Party. Whatever phrasing we want to use and it some people are saying, Hey, we think those guys they're the bad guys, for whatever reason. Let me just say clearly, I do. I think the Chinese Communist Party running the country China. I think they're the bad guys, and I think that they're harming people. And I think they are engaging in modern day slavery. And I think that what they're doing the wingers and I think that what they're doing targeting our country and I think that what they're doing to undermine our national security and what they're doing to steal our intellectual property and what they're doing to build up their military and rattle throughout. Specific. I think it's patently evil deserving of condemnation, and I think that what they did to hide the reality of this virus is equally deserving of condemnation, and there's hardly any getting around that that in fact happened. The comments of Congressman Chip Roy of Texas that today's House Judiciary Committee hearing Democrats on that committee quick to criticize the Republican lawmaker, representative Grace Manning of New York, who was of Taiwanese descent, calling out her calling for his words and his support of former President Donald Trump in the last year. The former president has repeatedly described coronavirus as quote the Chinese virus or kung flew. Critics claim it has helped foster an environment in which there are hate crimes against Asian Americans.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign

"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to

"People are some of the most vulnerable took over 19 since March, researchers say more than 1600. People in jails and prisons have died of the disease, and tens of thousands have been infected. Some states have started to vaccinate people behind bars while others have not. And we're gonna look now at how this is playing out in three states. Alison Cherry is with Colorado Public radio and she joins us from Denver. Conrad Wilson is with Oregon Public Broadcasting, and he's in Portland. Joining us from Boston is dead Backer with W. B. You are good to have all three of you here. Hi. Hi. Hello, Dev. I want to start with you. In Massachusetts. Your state included prisoners in the first phase of its covert 19 vaccine plan. What was the rationale for that? Well, we know that the virus transmits quickly in correctional settings in the risk of contracting the virus and dying from it are much higher inside prisons and jails compared with outside. So in deciding to vaccinate prisoners. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican, said that correctional settings are no different from other congregate living situation, such as shelters and group homes where people are living in Copan close quarters and the virus can easily spread. So here's what he said last month when he explained why prisoners were included in the first phase. Our facilities are congregated facilities and we need to make sure that the people who work there and the people who live there because of the possibility of outbreak that that should be a place. We focus early in this exercise. The governor says it's strong public health policy because it's not just vaccinating prisoners. Workers are getting the vaccine to any pointed out. There are lawyers to go in and out of prisons in jail's medical workers, visitors those who provide programming, so the states thinking is that offering vaccines and correctional settings will help prevent the spread in the community. And so far, how is the vaccine rollout going in jails and prisons in Massachusetts officials say it's going smoothly, but it appears that a lot of people are not taking it. Court documents in particular shows that about a third of prisoners in more than half of prison workers have not received the vaccine. Now. That number does not include workers who may have been vaccinated elsewhere. So some correctional facilities are holding vaccine education sessions to encourage people to get the shop. Okay, let's turn now to Oregon More than 40 prison inmates have died after testing positive for covert 19 in that state. So Conrad give us a sense of what's happening with vaccines there now. Almost 7000 inmates have been vaccinated. That's more than half of the state's prison population. Many of those inmates have received their second dose, prison officials say, but vaccinating this many inmates this soon wasn't something Oregon health officials were willing to do on their own. Took litigation from a group of inmates on din order from a federal judge here in Portland. Basically, the inmates argued Oregon's vaccination plan didn't treat them like others living in nursing homes and other congregate care facilities where the vaccine has been administered. Your state representative General Bynum. She's a Democrat and chairs the Oregon House Judiciary Committee. I didn't understand how our adults in custody, we're any different from any other group in a congregant care setting. And I certainly don't believe that a prison sentence is a death sentence. The judge's ruling at the beginning of this month force the state to offer inmates vaccines immediately, So that's why about half of all prison inmates have been vaccinated. Let me jump in here. This is Alison and Denver Advocates here wish that that would have happened in Colorado that court ruling con artist is talking about in Oregon. Is something lawyers here have been trying to use as a tool to get inmates vaccines, and I know there's been a back and forth over this in Colorado. Alison tell us more about what's been happening there. Yeah. Democratic Governor Jared Pulis hasn't prioritized inmates at all. And initially he did in one of the early plans, but then Was called out for that by some prominent conservatives, You know, people saying, Do you want the murderer to get the vaccine before your next door neighbor and he was apparently sensitive to that, and so he removed prisoners from the lists and put them in just the regular population. So in other words, he's making no distinction that these people are in a group setting a 70 year old prisoner would be prioritized. A 70 year old non prisoner and so on. So the majority of prisoners are not being prioritized. I will note that prison staff has been prioritized in those vaccines are being administered now. So tell us more about the pressure that Colorado's governor has been under Well. He's gotten a lot of pushback for his decision to not prioritize inmates for vaccine for getting a vaccine, and he's also been sued. He has thought that lawsuit successfully so far. Rebecca Wallace is an A C l U lawyer, she says. Public health officials have been universal in saying that people in groups heading should be prioritized for a vaccine and governor pull. It has actually not only ignored that guidance but rejected that guidance from his own Colorado Department of Public Health on by think it really stand out because he's such a data driven individual in his other decisions. I'm curious. Early in the pandemic, there was pressure to release inmates to create social distance inside facilities that were often crowded. Have vaccination efforts change those conversations in the states that you're all in? Well in Massachusetts. Despite the early vaccination of prisoners, there has been little movement to release people. The fight over that continues mostly through litigation. There are pending lawsuits, but with so many prisoners getting vaccinated now, it does weaken the argument for big releases. Yeah, and in Colorado. Interestingly, the state's prison population has gone down by a few 1000 people since the start of the pandemic, But state officials attribute that almost 100% to the fact that there were no no criminal jury trials last year at all in 2020, so there's this massive backlog in the States Criminal justice system. So you've brought us three very different stories about policies around vaccinating, incarcerated people in three states that are very different across the country. How does this fit in with what we are seeing across the US nationally, Conrad Well, every state is really dealing with this a little bit differently. And, you know, really, This is another symptom showing a lack of a national strategy. Despite the risks, it's another way of, you know, also showing how inmates are marginalized by society. And this isn't just about those who are incarcerated. In a recent report by the nonpartisan Prison Policy Initiative, researchers found that there were more new cases and counties that have large incarcerated populations.

"News radio. National correspondent Michael Bauer joins us now Live Mike, Let's start with the testimony from Attorney General William Bar Besides, all the drama, What were the takeaways? One of the big takeaways was the drama because it took so long to get to a testimony. Generally, when you have somebody testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee, it means they're talking, and that didn't happen Early on. You didn't get any any moments notice for Bill Bar to kind of start to answer a question that was given out by one of the House of Representatives Democrats before they told him to shut it down and that they were running out of time that they were reclaiming their time and they had to get back to The short amount of time to make their statements. So political grandstanding was at a premium yesterday, specifically as a potato Democrats or not a lot of answering the questions going on because he kept getting shut off, and then you would get through the five minutes a Democrat would have to go over to the Republican side for there five minutes. And then often times you would have the Republican go. Okay, Attorney General. Now you can answer that question. It was incredibly disjointed. It was definitely politically based, and even for the attorney general to be invited there that came back early in the early part of the year here and was under the guise that the House Judiciary Committee wanted to talk to him about corrupting the Department of Justice to benefit President Trump as it pertained to his impeachment. A lot of things have happened since that not only cove in 19 and Delaying that initial response to the attorney general was supposed to have but also then you saw the black lives matter Protests the death of George Floyd a lot of things that Democrats unloaded on Bill Bar yesterday. So eventually we got to the point. After five hours, you finally got to the point where At one point in time, the attorney general was able to answer some questions. Democrats didn't necessarily dig deep. And tried to answer the questions for Bill Bar. But there were elements that were in there that opened up Bill Bar to the possibility that there was the wrongdoing on some level going on. There were certainly questions where Bill Bar established himself as a loyal defender of President Trump..

"The the house Judiciary Committee to it is anti big he knows all the ins and outs on impeachment what collectors trying to pull and much more before do that I just wanted to make one quick comment on Ernest I hear what he's saying may and and I agree with him that we should all just get along the problem is the left won't yes a lot of people complain about Obama it is eight years somebody tried to impeach him although he did several things that could've been impeachable he divided the country and made every individual or ethnic and racial and even gender group hate each other and not talk to each other I would rather talk to Ernest and not in not not talk to him because you might not be aligned politically and I hear you saying I well I wish that too it can happen as long as the left is so hateful and goes after everything anybody outside of their little political realm going from one M. everything and anything we must get rid of trump because they know they can beat him so they make everybody hate the guy and that's a problem let me talk to any big in the meantime any appreciate your time how are you this is Joe good to be with you it's really a pleasure to have you on your on several committees five science space and technology you're also on of course the Jews the Judiciary Committee which is really huge are you the chairman of the house freedom caucus meant there so much going on AT you may or may not know this but I'm kind of a dumb guy so trying to figure out why we're here because I watched Adam Schiff and and he was very persuasive with his nothing burger then I watch Jerry Nadler who had even less than nothing to say there's nothing about a high crime or misdemeanor as as our friend Ted Cruz says that the constitution clearly states is gonna be treason gotta be bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors there's nothing in there isn't even a traffic violation is there no there's no solution whatsoever of any criminal conduct well we're here at this point because of the Democrats my friends on the other side they hate president from so badly they they despise the people that that elected him and they want nothing more than to remove this guy from office and and what's interesting about it is it slipped out earlier this week when Adam Schiff basically taught started talking about the twenty twenty election right they are afraid of the twenty twenty lectionis looked out and that's that's openly where we are we the they can't stand the thought of another Supreme Court justice being nominated by president trump another tax cut they just cannot stand the policies that are making America great again it is a representative in the big sister five Republican the great state of Arizona what's interesting to me is that they didn't hate him before the election because many of them years ago took money from him and he openly said I gave money to Democrats you to Republicans I gave money to I thought could help me out a in my business and and do the policies that make sense for for the way we were dealing with with our business and he was open about that so they didn't hate him in fact a lot of the one to be around and Hillary Clinton went to is his wedding for god sakes so is it really about the guy indie or is it just about the fact that Hillary didn't win well don't forget it part of it is that Hillary did win I mean that is that's what's called this that's what caused the residuary but don't forget you had the top levels of the intelligence apparatus and the FBI you have Peter struck in them actually supplying a quarter page trying to get in and watch was going on that then that president trump's campaign and that gave rise to all of this mess with the fake dossier yeah that the Hillary Clinton campaign DNC paid for and if I don't see that Adam Schiff still says he thinks is truthful and and that's that's the not because it I I I don't think it look look AT all these are dumb people I think you're pretty smart but but why is it that they keep on saying dumb things Adam Schiff was gonna present unadulterated evidence of collusion with Russia he have the evidence yet everything you need is gonna presented at the right time well the whole report is done a report that molar himself didn't even know much about and that that report is done shifted not present that evidence we all just said it's okay I guess you live for two years and that was long about the dossier they're lying about high crimes and misdemeanors you're lying about him trying to take on a political rival Joe Biden said I leverage my office to make them fire a prosecutor is a quid pro quo I give you billion you fire the prosecutor you don't I'll get on the plane and leaving we have it on tape this president said Hey the new president of Ukraine who ran on stopping corruption in Ukraine I'm glad that you won listen we've got some problems can you do us a favor we've had some real issues here can you investigate this look into corruption or potential corruption it isn't his job as the as the executive in chief to track down corruption of it's happening yeah absolutely especially when four hundred million US taxpayer dollars are riding on the line there right I mean in it so he and he's always expressed in this is one of the charms and one of the planks of his plans for the people like was he said we need to cut that out cut out if not week if we can't do that down on foreign aid so he wanted to get rid of corny but here yep four billion dollars going over there you got a guy who says he's going to to clean up corruption and then he immediately surrounds himself with a couple of people three several people that have been known to be corrupt the previous administration right okay let's find out what's going on can you find out what's going on in the money was released the same day the president's alleged he signed two important measures into law the Ukraine to stop corruption he's the chairman of the house of freedom caucus also the Judiciary Committee also space science and technology it's any big represented about a great state of Arizona after watching this unfold of course is going to be futile and they're going to lose in the president's gonna be get get a not guilty verdict and and he's gonna be exonerated what bill bill say he was exonerated they'll say was partisan but what we know is that they did it for basically one reason you alluded to Adam Schiff admitting it this week but I mean we got Al Green who actually said we started the impeachment of this president when he was running for president that's how nuts it is we've got a see saying it will impeach him he's going to be reelected now we have a keen Jeffries who yesterday said our only intention is in this is to remove this guy from office any that'll have to be any more blunt about it this is political it's partisan and trying to take out a political rival why is this okay white what you would you shut it down into you guys are nuts well it's not okay and it is yeah this is this is the thing that bugs me about this is the project the project so when they said the president trump was a candidate trump was colluding with the Russians who was really working with the Russians it was Hillary Clinton the DNC working with the Russians to create an attack on president from the suspect when they said that yeah that's a fact these things are true if we get around to this thing and they're out there saying that person from stride in interfere the twenty twenty election by asking the Ukrainians to look into past actions that dealt with the past election and corruption the reality is it makes me wonder what's going to happen in the twenty twenty lesson from the Democrat side because the reality is they project every time and so we're here we've reached this point because they're trying to control that election and you know what they have in the kills me is they've made no pretense about tried to hide what they're doing yeah I mean there's there's a lot of talk about constitution instead of what they want to control collection twenty twenty and they want to get rid of Donald Trump and the left wing media is helping them make that narrative and hide their real purpose district five Republican in the big from all over the great state of Arizona also on the Judiciary Committee which I mean the whole thing was not so just watching will fold you guys did an amazing job in holding shifts feet to the fire actually I've not lose feet to the fire ship of the intelligence committee any is it your opinion like in his mind that the intelligence committee should never ever have had anything to do with with impeachment that's always supposed to be the Judiciary Committee yeah for some reason into blows but Adam shipping charge of it and allowed him to do it in secret in this calf yeah I was outrageous is one of the outrageous things about the way this was done in the house Adam Schiff who basically hates present from city wanted Peter from day one yeah our policy give control right the problem was is Los you watched what happened in the Judiciary Committee so there are a couple things with Mulder a hearing to question Judiciary Committee and between his poor performance and the Democrats poor performance and the Republicans great performance we have this rated their position and she did want to see that happen again and then we cordon who would doubt he came in and again Republicans just eviscerated the Democrat position on that I think she said that we could never put anything back injury Nablus committee if we want to be taken seriously and have a shot so we're gonna get Adam ship because who knows why except he's gonna keep it secret yeah and course you didn't keep it secret is out there every day you know he he control if you left it every day and that's why he did it must give because then he could set the narrative which was ridiculous it's alright a Republican from the right set of Arizona district five Republican in the bigs any appreciate the time I got a question for my listeners my viewers all the time which is why our four senators who want the guys job allowed to sit on the jury and pretend they're impartial because literally you've got to Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren AT clover shar and here's another guy Bennett or somebody who's still in there that but I don't know why I didn't know he was in there to begin with to be honest with you but there are four sitting senators who literally will get a vote either for or against the guy they want his job how is it okay why don't they recused themselves why is there a rule that they have to well they they should have they should have ruled the taking a vote the crew that part of the rules that they should have to recuse themselves but but here's the fun part about this if in my opinion and that is nothing is about this environment fun part I'm just being facetious nothing about this is been fair to the president right so why would we think why would we think these people would have the the ethical of strength and fortitude of character to say you know what I I I I I'm trying to take this guy's seat I'm out there criticizing this guy every day I'm out there telling you but he's a rotten crooks no good and and everything else and there's no way I can you have the appearance I they can even have the appearance of fairness so so their character they would say I'm gonna step aside but the but they're not they're not going to do it because it's consistent with the with the way this whole thing has been run by the Democrats from start to finish representative any big he is the chairman of the house freedom caucus also the Judiciary Committee and the science space and technology committee what I want one last question was more of a compound question we know what the result is going to be and this is all a sham and it's a waste of time and a waste of money the house is done nothing but they made it clear everything bass recently said you know if we don't win here what is the pizza again so any what's to stop them from doing that every time the guy has a gas bubble they're gonna impeach him I'm a and what's the recourse for consequence for Adam shipping Jerry Nadler need to close the other than losing an election which they're not going to these people are pretty embedded in their districts what what is the recourse to stop this from becoming the norm impeachment should be rare it should almost never happen unless there's like a real holy crap he's like really colluding with Putin to overturn our our our over runner government be maybe then I see it or there's a crime like Bill Clinton commit a crime in Richard Nixon and so on but what's to stop it now for this for from this this is the norm we now have the house and where the Republicans or the Democrats are we have a Republican or Democrat president let's impeach yeah that is that's one of the the the biggest harms these guys have done that the first vote they've for three years they've castigated president trump and tried to stop his presidency right amazingly successful in spite of that right but I'm I'm going to I I just want to really address the issue of of where we go from here yeah and I and I don't want to be sent to participate can help with I am part is that if the Republicans don't take back the house if we don't win the house back in twenty twenty I guarantee you we're gonna be going through at least two and a half more years of this thing and so that's why we first thought that's the number one way to stop it is election box because it looks like it shipped the metal that you're right they're better what you have there are a lot of.

"House Judiciary Committee debating articles of impeachment live represent of Louis Gober speaking right now let's listen in this is a dangerous dangerous time in America they talk about abuse of power but they were willing to obscure evidence in a basement hearing over and over they're willing to block witnesses from coming in here and testifying before Congress they're willing to obtain and publish phone records of people don't know probable cause there's no crimes by any of these people but it reminds me a lot of what happened under the bush department of justice when we got an IG report that said there were over probably over three thousand national security letters like subpoenas sent out on fishing expeditions I was outraged here I almost Hogan Butler and I was talking with senator Schumer who is always he was I was outraged like he wants the report said of the abuses and I called the White House and I said this is outrageous the abuses of Americans rights somebody's got to answer for this and we need a new Attorney General and my mistake was not demanding a new director of the FBI actors mower stayed and you screwed it up even worse than it had been before yeah some of us stand up and call it like it is no matter which administration is office and now we've heard from horror which we've heard from bar and juror on all three years screaming about lies where the real lives and it some point I would think I'm a Democrat the report says all these things we said we're crimes they didn't happen they didn't exist it was all a fabrication and in fact all four of those warrants should never been issue and I hope some of my friends across the aisle will finally join me and said it was either get rid of the FISA court or figure out a way to make them better because they are so abusive and they have been in my party didn't want to fix it their party doesn't want to fix it it needs to be fixed all you just say the this I came in here and I did not want to get emotional what an absent through trials that were hard to sit through but nothing like sitting this week in this committee hearing and Dave like Jefferson I tremble that god is Justin is just just won't sleep forever but the abuse is the obstruction of Congress have come from Congress I would have expected Donald Trump just say you came after me my business associates my family now I'm going back in I'm going to make millions of dollars check with you guys but he is hung in there it's it's amazing at some point the majority is god just say they probably won't we're really sorry there was nothing on which to base all those allegations of crimes on and we owe you indeed apologies let's see the hogans and butlers on the demo and the Democratic Party and same one yet go back generally is back Mr Johnson thank you Mister chairman until this investigation began I did not support impeaching president trump and I'd like to tell you all what changed my mind America first we've heard those words a lot recently we haven't always agreed on what they mean but we know this our founders created impeachment so that no president could place himself above the law impeachment gives Congress the ability and the responsibility to put America first I don't take that responsibility lightly well I didn't vote for president trump I respect the office that he holds I didn't call for impeachment when the president shut down our government or tried to rip health care from those with pre existing conditions but rather the more embarrassing they act like you know Hank Johnson you this represents and what we were talking about you know Americans.

Why congress is running out of options for how to investigate the president. It's Thursday may not. Please come to order for being present attack. What was the mood at this meeting of the House Judiciary committee on Wednesday? It was tense chairman Nadler was very unhappy with the administration's general attitude toward complying with requests for information from congress as a co equal branch of government. We must have access to the materials that we need to fulfill our constitutional responsibilities in a manner consistent with past precedent. Now's Democrats, of course has for testimony from Bob Mueller special counsel William bar. The attorney general Don Mcgann, former White House counsel and all kinds of documents, including tax returns and business records of President Trump and most pointedly at the moment, the Muller report in the document's underlying it. The Malo report is not ordinary run of the mill document details significant misconduct involving the president, including his campaigns willingness and eagerness to accept help from a hostile foreign government.

"The transmission of the roadmap, but the story and the lesson for Nadler does not quite end there. Because congress a few years later wrote the roadmap procedure into law. The now defunct independent counsel law required. That quote, an independent counsel shall advise the house of representatives of any substantial and credible information, which such independent counsel receives that may constitute grounds for an impeachment. It was under this law that Kenneth Starr issued the so-called star report which was actually a referral of information that in stars judgment. The judiciary committee might consider grounds for impeaching Bill Clinton. The result is that we have something of a presidential tradition in which special. Prosecutors investigating presidents have referred material to the House Judiciary committee. That they regard as possible grounds for impeachment. The trouble is that the particular statute under which star operated has lapsed and the regulations that replaced. It have no provision for an impeachment referral to the contrary. They require that Muller. File us confidential report to the attorney general who then decides what to do with it. They conspicuously do not require that information that might be essential to Congress's performance of its duty actually reached congress. So if Muller actually has evidence that congress would want to examine under the impeachment clauses tapping into the incipient tradition of referring such material would require a decision on his part, and it would actually require as well a decision on the part of incoming attorney general William bar. A letter from Nadler would be designed publicly and formally to remind both Muller and bar of the tradition, and of congress is expectation that they act in accord with it Nadler has declared. He will get the Muller report, quote, if necessary our committee will subpoena the report if necessary will get Muller to testify he said recently, but this actually skips an important step. It assumes that Muller's report will be a fully developed narrative that answers all of congress is questions on impeachment matters. But what if the Muller report is not factually rich, what if it is not designed to deliver to congress information to help congress do its job..

"Shorts. January thirty first two thousand nineteen today. An article that we ran this morning on l'affaire entitled what an old Watergate document can teach the House Judiciary committee by me. The chairman of the house committee on the judiciary faced a vexing problem pressure for impeachment was building. But while lots of evidence against the president was public key pieces of it were not they were rather in the hands of a special prosecutor who didn't work for congress. The prosecutor's job was to prosecute crimes not to evaluate the president's fitness for office that ladder job lay with the chairman and his committee who didn't have access to the prosecutor's evidence. So the House Judiciary committee chairman wrote a letter requesting that the evidence be turned over, quote, the house and the judiciary committee are under control. Rolling constitutional obligation and commitment to act expeditiously in carrying out. Their solemn constitutional duty wrote chairman Peter Regino in a letter dated March eighth nineteen seventy four to John, Sarah. The chief judge of the US district court for the district of Columbia. It was Redeina said the quote committee's view that in constitutional terms. It would be unthinkable if this material were kept from the house of representatives in the course of the discharge of its most awesome, constitutional responsibility, unquote. I have a suggestion for Jerry Nadler, the current occupant of regina's old office he should consider taking a page from his predecessors book and formally requesting a referral of possible impeachment material. Not ler. Circumstances are admittedly a bit different from regina's, but the similarities are striking to and regina's course, suggests a way forward for Nadler that is worth serious consideration it boils down to this if Nadler and his committee want the evidence in the hands of special counsel, Robert Muller that is relevant to their performance of their own constitutional function. They should start by formally asking Muller to refer it to them. I ran across regina's letter in a passing reference in my recent research on the Watergate roadmap. The grand jury report that Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jawara ski referred to the House Judiciary committee in nineteen seventy four specifically Ceric mentioned the letter in his opinion approving the transmission of war skis impeachment referral quote. The House Judiciary committee through its chairman has made a formal request for delivery of the report materials the opinion says a footnote in support of this point footnote number four sites the Rudeina letter specifically along with a hearing transcript the national archive has made both of these documents public and we posted them on law. Fair this morning. Let's acknowledge up front the differences between regina's circumstances and Nadler's regina's committee already had an open impeachment inquiry authorized by nearly unanimous four hundred. Ten to four vote in the house of representatives Nadler's committee by contrast has no open impeachment inquiry. Indeed democratic leaders insist they have no plans to impeach President Trump and are waiting on the evidence from Muller before making any decisions about how to proceed as Nadler himself recently. Put it, quote, we have to see what the Muller report says, unquote. He added we have to get the facts, we will see where the facts lead maybe that will lead to impeachment. Maybe it won't it is much too early unquote. Perhaps more importantly Jawara ski. Unlike Muller was ready to provide material to the house, the Watergate grand jury had specifically prepared the report for purposes of transmitting it to the House Judiciary committee in support of the impeachment inquiry by contrast Muller is keeping things. Very quiet. He presumably doesn't want congressional activity to interfere with his investigation. And he's evidently, not look. To jump start congressional investigations that will want to talk to his witnesses. Indeed, it's not even clear if Muller believes he has information that he would want the House Judiciary committee to examine pursuant to its obligations under the impeachment clauses. So if I sit in short to say that at the present time, neither the supply side, nor the demand side of this equation is as mature as it was in nineteen seventy four. And yet as I say the similarities between the situations strike me as alternately more substantial than the differences for one thing. The structural arrangement is very similar once again, the judiciary committee has the impeachment thority, but not the evidence while the prosecutor has the evidence, but not the authority to think beyond the narrowly criminal in critical respects, the current interational of this problem is actually worse than it was in Watergate back then after all the Senate Watergate committee had done its own extensive investigations key witnesses had testified publicly and the broad parameters of the story were thus known..
