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.
Merrick Garland's MEMOGATE Explodes
"The national school board association letter otherwise known as the letter that broke the entire educational world led to the memo. The memo from Merrick Garland that inexplicably called for the defense apparatus to use potentially the Patriot Act and Department of Homeland Security to go after moms and dads. This is a legitimate scandal that is heating up, which we will now call memo gate. Cut 58 Merrick Garland in front of Congress, said that he could not imagine any circumstance that parents complaining about their school boards would be labeled as domestic terrorism, cut 58. Like you, I can't imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism. New whistleblower last night shows that Merrick Garland lied under oath in front of Congress as all of these deep state unelected operatives do, no one voted for Merrick Garland, Merrick Garland is an unelected Plato guardian type that wants to usher in a globalist internationalist borderless society, while he does not actually have to live under those same rules and measures. Whistleblower breaking last night. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, created a threat tag to track allegedly menacing statements against school boards and their members after attorney general Merrick Garland directed the bureau to take the lead on hyperlocal disputes. A whistleblower has revealed. The email dated October 20th about a month ago, released Tuesday by House judiciary Republicans, who said this was proof that the federal counter terrorism was being deployed against parents at school board meetings.
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.

There was lots of people injured as well. Um But again, I've said this many times this week. It just underscores how badly this was done. Um And just how poorly this administration Uh, it's embarrassing. It's it's shocking it but it shouldn't be surprising because I've said this many times. I don't know what this administration has done right and you can just go down the borders a mess. Inflation is a mess. Crime in every city. Every city is up. Um, they haven't done anything right?

What Does Monopoly Mean in the Internet Age?
"Lawmakers have had it out for facebook for a while last year a house judiciary subcommittee report accused the tech giant of anticompetitive behaviour and in december. Facebook got suit on monday. Those lawsuits were dismissed. It's a big win. For the social media company it also signals a rocky path forward for legislators both sides of the aisle trying to rein in big tech here to break down. the latest development is recode serene ghaffari high serene. Hey adam so let's start with the lawsuits. What were they about yes. The lawsuits basically accused facebook of acting as a monopoly to crush. Its competition two different lawsuits. One was filed by the federal trade commission or the ftc which is the top government agency for enforcing antitrust laws. And then there was a parallel lawsuit also filed by forty eight attorneys general from different states and territories in the us and they both essentially said the same thing that facebook's allegedly monopolistic practices leave consumers with less choices for which social networking apps. They wanna use and advertisers have less choices for aware. They want actually advertise reach. People lawsuits also said that. Facebook engage in a quote systemic strategy to eliminate their competition and that this was something really tactical that facebook was actively doing crush its competitors. What exactly did that strategy look like so. The lawsuit said that when facebook bought instagram. Back in two thousand twelve and remember at that time. Instagram was a startup. it was considered an up and coming rival to facebook They said that that was an example of something that facebook shouldn't have been allowed to do because in regulators view this was essentially facebook trying to stifle competition by eating it up and buying it rather than letting market competitor truly compete and they also point to win. Facebook bought the messaging app called whatsapp in two thousand fourteen. Again this up and coming service. That was rivaling. facebook and facebook went ahead and bought it today. More people are on. What's app than they are on facebook's own messenger product but that doesn't matter for facebook because it's all part of the facebook ecosystem now
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. Yeah, a couple of additional points in

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.

"house judiciary" Discussed on WTVN
"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.

"Had we had the house Judiciary Committee voted in the two articles of impeachment of trump of use of power and obstruction of Congress all in all a long a very bitter bitter bitter party line to vote vote the full house is gonna vote in on a Wednesday I think and then it goes to the Senate there's no chance of conviction in the Senate but again it'll be party line vote the house of I think of some numbers and some of his house to vote against it but the vast majority will vote for it it'll pass the other second thing is that the FBI report came out and on the investigation of of the link between the trump campaign in Russia and the Faisal FISA court and there's something in there for everything for the for the Democrats the investigation of the results report said that the investigation was justified there was no bias against of of the trump in the FBI there's no specific no examples of spying on the campaign either electronically or by in person people of being planted there on for the Democrats there's numerous failures in the procedures by the FBI staff of particulars relates to Carter page and reliance on the the US steel dossier although they said that the investigation was ongoing before the still dossier anyway those two things came up we also want to talk about mega star with mark in Baltimore talk about the couple of things number one the the carnage in New Jersey and now this one in Atlanta just does it ever end so let's let's go to mark in Baltimore mark welcome to the show yes good a range of oracle about about one region although most of the happy Hanukkah which stores next week on Sunday evening this summer twenty four in the evening is it a press the go through Monday during the day December thirtieth we have in the Jewish community here and elsewhere or around really do agree to what happened up in Jersey city absolutely we have a question I have a few questions about blues and did anyone we know there was a shooting at a cemetery early we don't even know how for the cemetery was away from the Jewish deli and we don't know which was weird yeah the policemen office there was killed do we know how that came about I don't know I know the only thing is that I had heard was that that these two I've the column shooters I think that's that that their killers are not shooters is kind of in the name but nine term though there are killers and those two killers apparently were also implicated ana kill of the killing uber driver the day before a couple of days before I haven't heard anything about it the the the a cemetery to the point of the matter is these two guys apparently we're targeting this Jewish of rest of store Sabah market and you know just I don't know much more about it than that mark clearly there closely tied to the Jewish community participants also that will you know start this may really to know and very rarely do I watch television but I have to be somewhere Tuesday night downtown waiting for me to the store and I was watching some of the the news and it showed a one hour guns one hour one far between these two pieces of and the and that is what team where did the what and what actually one of the one we can't sit two guys it was a woman one man I don't you know I think they were two for this I think that was that was two men like a criminal about that those migration was two men but one way or the other he was too short whatever what did it get all those weapons and bullets one hour this is unusual I have no clue I mean it you know one of my head and they are fifteen so that you know this was this was a war zone and I have no and and it wasn't just the the the police who had the the swat team that had the A. R. fifteen rifles one of the weapons of one of these shooter said was a there are fifty I have no clue how they got it but you know apparently they they could get them legally just I have no idea how to get him I truly don't I understand the one other thing I did want to make mention as well as what was interesting was raised one of the call was for instance from Michigan made an error of thinking that at first when the first reports came out of the carnage that there there were white nationalists involved sand and she realized she made a mistake when it down when it was revealed it was African American said this was a congressman totally yeah yeah I have no I don't know what you know they open to you know I thought it was very strange coming you know but anyway yeah I just want to say by the way we're not done I went I want to ask you what's going on in Israel this is gonna have to have another vote because the neither of that Yahoo or Netanyahu or the water is Bernie Gantz could form a government so you got another child coming up and what is real I was told that a vote could take place I think in March yeah that's what I it will probably be I don't know will probably be after a Jewish holiday apart you know about the the most on our day yeah I I mean is on president all around I don't I don't know how many chances do you need a lot how many times the legal action that he would try to get a government form the gentleman I have no idea it's just neither of those is because Dayton yet Netanyahu couldn't form a government get sixty one seats in the in the Knesset then burning again so that it pronounce that he couldn't get out yeah and then they then they open it up to say anybody else who won who think they can do it give it a shot nobody could so now they get another vote I mean it's just how can you run a government how can there be a government when you know nobody can make laws that's just I have no idea we have a very unique problematical yeah which means is expired you put twenty Israelis and only get twenty one opinion I I can't answer that question I would road that are tunable lectionis schedule but I think people are tired of elections because a lot of money to put a lot together really so this is joining the ache economy because most of the money and fortunate to have to go to what's offensive to get out of the of the fan so I have no idea just anyway hits and I saw that this last week that that the the president basically said we got another vote another election because that and what from what Lee you know the I read the Wall Street journal which is that's neutral of United people not great but it's a pretty neutral organ all of the the the the opinion page but that that's good sound right reporting and they basically said that they do there's not a real lot lot of optimism that the next election will be any different that either party will get the collect coalition be able to form a coalition to to the form of the gun that I do know for fact is neither party wants to work with the air of members of the Knesset because the Knesset one hundred twenty six the absent from one thirteen think that's over ten baset which is on president and they do not want needle of parties wanted to go shave we've all been there yeah and therefore which is a key part I thought I don't know what is going to be yeah because the other part of the problem was that that that the blue and white party won't even negotiate with the the Likud party as long as Netanyahu's at your end of it and he can't risk losing it because if he doesn't get indicted so that's what I mean I know how that works I just simply want to say I do want to end on a happy note that's all I can say on that and I just simply want to say may made to members of the people that was slain than Joe see health will be remembered for blessing yes says hello yes and and the other thing is is is is hopefully the ravens can keep going on keep on winning thanks mark was a gem thank you hide in exile all right well guess what the lines are open like this month people's thoughts on impeachment on the F. B. I. report another big thing I gotta tell ya just describes the daylights out of me is first of all that that credit turn Berg the Swedish girl the six year old Swedish girl was was named person of the year by time magazine for her work advocating for climate change and trump mocked her I mean it's cyber bullying at its worst and not only that that's not a surprise but what to me what really great me was the fact that melania trump the the president's wife her big thing supposedly was a campaign against cyber bullying and yet the number one site be cyber bullying her namely her husband she doesn't say anything when he bullies this young lady because she became that person are you of the year and he was also considered and he didn't get it and apparently he's perturbed that he didn't get it and she did and he's mad and he takes it out on her side I tell ya I'm not a big fan of the first really not a big fan of the president but I've also not not a fan of all of the First Lady I mean talk about hypocrite she's proposes the proposed promotes this thing except when it affects the subscriber bull you're number one name in her husband nothing I can say about her is that you know he makes a point of always wearing a different outfit every time she's she does the one thing she does frequently which is walk back and forth between the helicopter that White House on our way to to from Marlowe again Florida so anyway I just like it some of us what her favorite another thing that that well all this bad news for trump is come out it's too it's too bad because it's actually some really great really hats and he in one way he had a really good week he got finally with agreement of the Democrats that he'll he'll take full credit for that with a grimace of the Democrats who got the the the new nafta Adam what's called the basically the US Canada Mexico tree trade three trade deal through and it's as one person said it's it's ninety percent after but it's the other ten percent is a significant improvement in Sir in areas so that's certainly a positive from the transfer from its perspective secondly the US China trade agreement went through our he says it did although I gotta tell you there is something some B. S. involved in that in that click the trump's campaign they said in that they're quoting that that the chief you should US says the China will by fifty billion dollars a year in agriculture well let me tell you a secret the highest amount of agriculture that the China has bought from the US was in two thousand seventeen and that was twenty three billion twenty three billion in in then a couple of things have happened since the number one the Chinese economy slowed down so they're not buying as much secondly at least in terms of of of soybeans and corn and secondly the Chinese have found other suppliers particularly Brazil and I think Australia so this year they bought three billion as opposed to twenty three billion two years ago before please try these these tests in place so here you got you got you went from twenty three down to about three now he's claiming that they're gonna buy fifty even though of there are other suppliers of stepped into the breach to provide for them so anyway I got a real question has there been a trade deal yes does it have some good things in it yes but I gotta tell you until you see it in writing and see that that of course is another side of that which we get into if you want namely the issue of of trump gives twenty six billion dollars in aid to the farmers because in his truck of his chair of deal and then he turns around and they just decided last week's paper that he's cutting seven hundred thousand people off of the the of the of food stamps because excess cording because they say it'll say five billion dollars he gets twenty six the billion away because of his Trajan I'll of his terrace rather than what I'm gonna say five of that by cutting off the poor anyway gifs that's not something that pleases me a lot of we are we'll take a break we'll take of we're gonna take a break we'll come back we'll talk about the the character from not from among we talked about talk about the time magazine thing anyway well back in the.

"The house Judiciary Committee released a report Saturday in which it argued that a president may be impeached for illegitimate motives even if his actions are legally permissible that was the sap up today they are going after trump for what he may have wanted to do they're going after trump for what may have been in his mind even if what he was doing was legally permissible he wanted to engage in some kind of illegality your trip this is the basis on which they are proceeding now we can go through a point by point rebuttal of every point they're making with all that does is accept the premise of their points and I don't think any of this is legitimate if you want my version of this what's illegitimate about all this is the Democrats and these hearings and this entire process that's what's illegitimate the twenty sixteen election was totally legitimate it was totally fair the Democrats can't get over it the twenty twenty election is going to be totally legitimate and totally fair other might be some fraud the as there always is a local precincts vote counting dead people voting that kind of stuff but that's not the Russians that's local election officials doing that that's always happens in our elections but the Russians no foreign power can come in and change the outcome of the presidential election they can't reject nobody can actually effectively rig an election now you can go in and you can let dead people vote then you can try to get illegal aliens the phone and all that but fox that's that's just as much a part of American elections as legal voting is and it's not gonna don't misunderstand me there's nothing new about that and there certainly is not Russian meddling as part of it our election in twenty sixteen there's not a single person that can a land just single weld was change my Bircher what Russia did there's no evidence nor is there an allegation that a single vote was change much less election outcome because of what the Russians did and no less than Robert Muller himself said that in his indictment of the Russian troll farms during the era of his bogus investigation and forthcoming bogus report so the Democrat party it's as though they know they're gonna lose they have no way of beating trump so the only hope they have is to make trumpet legitimate so that he can't enact an agenda and even with that trump's agenda is being enacted and we've got an economy roaring like most Americans have never experienced in their lifetimes we have unemployment at a fifty year record low African American Hispanic minority unemployment dental record low wages every economic indicator is on the rise at almost unprecedented levels people are living it and I know what it's like a kid but public sentiment on the economy public confidence is also right near record highs this is what the Democrats are up against the all they can do their work we're we're we're re living the eighties in the sense that we we we had the same kind of implementation of conservative supply side economic theory policy and it is working like at and all the Democrats can do is try to delegitimize anything and everything associated with it including trump but this really is no more complicated than they just hate it and they can't get over the fact that he won and they can't get over the fact that they still can't get rid of him and they can't get over the fact that the media can't get rid of me can't get over the fact that the deep state experts best and brightest have been able to get rid can't bill Taylor didn't get rid of it lieutenant colonel Vernon oh say can you see that get rid of your vantage one able to get rid of him Fiona hill whenever you're feeling whatever name is there at their wit's end anyway I guess it takes being outside Washington outside this process to be able to see this it is my take on this I have yet to hear anywhere on TV will be back in just seconds don't call.

"You're listening to work a report and I'm your host. Scott to work on today's show we have former law professor representative Jamie Raskin on the program to discuss what he is doing on the House Judiciary Committee to bring about a bill of impeachment against President Donald J trump. I got to ask him about the unfolding. Scandal linked to a whistle blower plant which is reportedly about trump pressuring during the president of Ukraine to open a completely baseless investigation into the Democratic Front runner in the two thousand twenty primary contest Joe Biden Representative Raskin. It also explained to me that there is one charge almost sure to land in trump's articles of impeachment and there's virtually no way he can defend himself from it in a trial vile because he's been so obviously negligent in flaunting the constitution we also discussed Corey loon Doussi's testimony and how he thinks the house should take take stronger measures to extract testimony from trump's former campaign manager and from all of his cronies as well as the sad state of rampant corruption at the White House House but before we start. I'd like to ask you to check out the link to my new book series meet the Candidates Twenty twenty authored by this podcast producer grant stern. I'm the series editor and each book starts with an essay that I've written about the top six Democratic candidates for president the books are great portrait of each candidate for it looks under every rock search engine and even into the Internet archive to paint that portrait with lots of facts policy in the history that you truly need to understand. Dan The top Democratic candidates for president in twenty twenty check out meet the candidates twenty twenty dot com to see all the books so please take a listen to my interview with one of the House Judiciary Committee's top legal minds Congressman Jamie Raskin. I'm here with Congressman Jamie Raskin who represents Maryland's since eighth congressional district just north west of DC and he's already a member of House leadership injustice second-term. He's one of the most vocal leaders in the house who seeking taking the hold the president accountable and a participant in the ongoing impeachment inquiry from his position on the House Judiciary Committee as well as from his seat on the House Oversight Committee Mitty Congressman Raskin. Thank you so much for joining us today. I'm delighted to be with you. Scott now the house. Judiciary has formally resolved to implement and impeachment in procedure. Does this mean the committee has a clear right to obtain a copy of the Muller Grand Juries secret material which should suing for that otherwise will be protected by the federal courts grand jury secrecy rules well it still needs to be ruled upon by a court but the courts have determined that the investigative investigative fact-finding powers of Congress are at their zenith when we're in an impeachment investigation and that's because impeachment is explicit enumerated numerator power of the legislative branch under Article One. It obviously goes to the very essence of the rule of law so we're in a legal proceeding being now. Does that mean the House Judiciary Committee is going to move to restrict members for making comments during witness interviews instead of asking questions which would make the hearings more like depositions depositions for potential Senate trial well. I think it has been more like that certainly like if you go back to the investigation and I think the Lou in Taos Ski hearing was was more like that but of course you know with the trump administration and then trump witnesses all that's her off because they basically thrown caution to the wind and our behaving completely above and outside the law but yes I mean when we're in fact finding investigative vestige of hearings. We're going to be working to just try to collect as much information as we can. Do you think that Corey Lewandowski should be held in contempt. Well I think he clearly was in contempt of Congress. He was behaving in contempt of the people is representative then of the people in the constitution how we deal with this most lawless and reckless doc was administration is just a very thorny complicated problem because if we go to court it takes weeks or months to take two years in some cases the contempt holding against attorney general holder from the fast and furious investigation took several years before there was finally a ruling on it you know we're dealing with a tidal wave of misconduct by the administration on daily basis so I I am someone who favors our use of inherent contempt powers of Congress where we don't have to go to the courts in order to enforce rulings. We can just do it ourselves but that hasn't happened around here for many many decades and would require dusting off some of our nineteenth century rulings and practices. I immigration trump and impeachable acts. Are there a few that your committees targeting you know whether it be emoluments or what do you think the major major articles of impeachment would be if impeachment does go forward well the cardinal sin in the constitution for for a president gone bad is converting the office into an instrument of private profit and self enrichment and the foreign emoluments monuments clause prevents the president from collecting foreign payments payoffs from foreign governments prince's kings and foreign states without the consent center. Congress that domestic emoluments clause limits the president to his salary in office and prevents him from collecting other money from the US government. This president president is in flagrant daily violation of both the domestic and foreign emoluments clause. He's collected millions of dollars at the the trump office tower in business deals around the world at the golf resorts and hotels and of course at the headquarters of all the action which is the The Washington trump hotel where all of the foreign governments interested in ingratiating themselves with the president come and spend lots and lots of money and you know the president has made a token payment of three hundred and forty thousand dollars to the Treasury thing this represents the quote profits on payments. He's received from foreign governments but the Constitution doesn't ban his collection of prophets bands collection of all payments and he didn't give us an accounting anyway. Nobody saw anything. We're we're just supposed to take his word for it and then event. It's up to Congress. It's not up to him. In domestic emolument side the whole country now is totally aware of what's going going on. He gave the game away when he sent the vice president to Ireland and told him to stay at his hotel and then it comes out that in Scotland they redirected kids that Air Force air traffic to stop at every fueling site near the turnberry resort and then they've they've put up nearly two hundred thousand dollars worth of servicemen and women there at the hotel no and they're just making money hand over fist every single day and he can't be accepting any of it. The president can only accept his salary and the joke is that he it goes around the OH. I don't accept a salary key should accepted salary and he should stop ripping off taxpayers and all these other contexts find out more about meet the candidates and it's twenty twenty my new book series of Voter Guides authored by working report producer Grant Stern. It's the only place you can read my opinion and a factual portrait portrait of each major Democratic candidate in one place by the book now at the link inside this episode's notes at Grant Stern dot com or your local Barnes Burns and noble. Thanks again for your support. Let's get back to the show. Have we seen corruption like this. In this country before. Never you know I went back did a little study of all of the emoluments received by other presidents and they were all scrupulous about turning them over to Congress yeah Abraham Graham Lincoln in the middle of the civil war. You know there's battles taking place and he's said the elephant tusks he received from the king of Siam over to new Congress saying I love these. I keep them in Congress had no they must be turned over to the Department of Interior and trump's hero. Andrew Jackson received a gold gold medallion from Simone Boulevard. Who was the Prime Minister Venezuela. He wanted to keep that in the congress said well we see equities on both sides but we think you should turn that over to the Department of State and he did but it flies in the face of everything that the framers believed to allow the president to keep millions of dollars in cash being deposited with him and his businesses you know the whole point of these clauses was to say that the president had to have undivided loyalty to the American people people and not foreign agents swarming all around on the nation's capital and not to his own business interests and yet this president decided not to himself top of his business interests and decided not to put everything in blind trust. He just kept going and has other trump's working with him on it well. It's a scandalous situation and I think that he betrayed his oath of office. He portrayed the constitution from day. One and everyone sees the way in which the moneymaking continues. How do you think this ends for trump well. I do think that version of the presidency into a for profit enterprise is is the Achilles heel this administration and the kind of betrayal of the office represented by these actions we are seeing now of course horse with this whistleblower meddled matter but that's just unfolding now so we're not quite sure where that takes us but we have in every episode is the president placing. I think his personal monetary and political interests above the office above his responsibilities in office and that just cannot stand in the long run. There's a certain kind of animal cleverness that he has about escaping situations. He's gotten into but I think ultimately the framers framers of the constitution will prove to be superior match to even this reckless wallace president. Thank you again for taking the time I and thanks again for all you do. you know you were really stepping up early on the process even before he was sworn in and so. I can't can't thank you enough for everything that you do well. I appreciate what you're doing and we got to defend the press. the the media is not the enemy of the people depresses. This is the people's best friend and when the history of this sordid period is written it will be recorded that there were strong journalists like you who stood stood up to all of the the power and the abuses are taking place thanks again to Congressman Jamie Raskin and for all he does for the country.

"Today. The House Judiciary committee votes to hold the attorney general in contempt of congress for refusing to release the full Muller report, nothing is likely to happen. 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..

We'll we'll have hearings all of which we done in consultation with our chairman to to be Jerry Nadler I talked to him about voting rights in emoluments already and there'll be other hearings by the full committee and maybe some of the other committees that might come up and I think they'll be like impeachment hearings if they're not called impeachment hearings because they are the the problem of an impeachment would be violations of emoluments and and <hes> unjust USA pardons and attempts to obstruct justice which may come up as well and some of that would come up in the criminal law subcommittee which Sheila jackson-lee will share. I think she'll have the opportunity to do hearings on things like obstruction of justice and and other surveys currently with Muller's investigation so we'll have those whether there will be a impeachment hearing soon. I don't know eventually there will be one and I say there will be one because trump continues to exhibit and show the need to bring impeachment charges against him and that's why did it in November twenty seventeen <hes> h joint reservoir twenty one <hes> he just keeps keeps doing he doesn't know how to refrain because his life has been one crime <hes> after another one misdeed after another one lie after another and he will continue to do this. He'll continue in my opinion to to interfere with due process to try to Muller's investigation because he can't stand anybody. That's not a sycophant at a lack of when did you. I realize that trump's lengthy relationship with Russia required urgent response by Congress. It's hard to say when I I did. I guess we had suspicions early in medicine administration and they were. I don't think anybody realized it necessarily during the election. Although you know I remember being shocked when he at one of the speeches said Russia if you're listening we're the whatever it was thirty thousand emails and there were some other things that came up <hes> concerning the changes in the Republican Party's ladies platform concerning giving Ukraine offensive weapons and there were certain evidences that were were out there but it wasn't I guess until we started this Congress and he was present began and you started to see so many connections and I guess early on it might have been before they took office where when <hes> Kushner was trying to get back channel <hes> to the White House from Russia and you what is going on here and all the context with Kislyak with sessions with with with Flynn. Can you name it. <hes> it so obvious that <hes> they they they were hoots and then the more and more it goes on in the more you learn just fill obvious and you know Muller's able to put together all the pieces..
