"I am joined by Jordan Cockburn, Hey Jordan. Has Been Good. Did you have a good weekend? Yes I did. Yeah, I. Just Kinda chilled, everybody. Is Very much saying inside again as it should be, so it's just kind of following suit on that. Yeah Gavin, Newsom, just shutdown bars and nightclubs again in in I think nine counties San Diego not included, but could be anytime now, so we'll have to keep an eye on that I think just I just saw to. Imperial County just got ordered new back into lockdown. Imperial is one of them which is like right next to us right yes. Yes, indeed, that is the whole El Centro Central, valley. Situation Sich between here and Huma Yeah I was booked on a comedy show on Friday and Saturday at the county palace and I I canceled super last minute. which is a shitty thing to do if you're an aspiring stand up comic listening. But. but yeah, just with all the news coming out of all the cases going up and stuff it just it just seemed like a bad time to to go back nothing against the comedy, palace or anything. This is very strange, but be APP to my waking at freed up because of that. Yeah. It's a fourth of July weekend and. Our network just texted me our network. I just texted me. You taken any days off and I'm like for what? Where am I going to go? So, let's kick it off. We've got some headlines here. If any of you watched motto Friday you saw her lied about Jack. Abramov it was probably some of the best reporting I've seen in a while although I think the lead should have been the Russia's story. But that was just sort of breaking at that at that moment as she you know right before she went on air, but her. Jack Abramov lead was incredible so in two thousand six Jack Abramov was charged and imprison for bilking indigenous people by threatening their casinos, and then providing a service to you know that they would pay him to stop the threats against casinos. It was like a he was coming at it from both sides. And he and several Bush administration officials went to prison for that stunt. Oversee the memes where they're like how many people were indicted and went to prison in the Obama Administration zero? How many from Bush twelve a lot of them came from this? Abe Abramov lobbying problem and in response to this. Crime this desperately bullshit. Congress passed a law requiring lobbyists to register. And this is a law passed because of Jack Abramov and that was a while back well now. The Department of Justice has charged the first person for breaking the Abramov Law and that person is Jack Abramov. He was lobbying without registering having someone else lobby on his behalf in a crypto currency conspiracy case. San San Francisco US Attorney David Anderson said at a press conference that Abramov was charged with criminal conspiracy to make false and misleading statements to potential buyers of cryptocurrency Bloomberg. News, this is from Bloomberg News The prosecutor said Abramov agreed to plead guilty, and could face up to five years in prison, so as motto said on the Friday show the first person to be charged in the you know. Lobbying law created because of Abramov is Abramov Congratulations Mr Abramov. What a boring mystery! Who Done it that is? It was exactly the guy you would have expected, and let's see behind. Who's find the mask? The same fucking face all right. Guess we can go home. Now would not be funny if like they've. Found all of these like criminal crumbs and they were like we should probably call Jack. Abramov I and make sure it's not him. Yeah exactly. And before I handed over to you in a separate suit, the US Securities and Exchange Commission the SEC is also sued, Abramov asserting he participated in a fraudulent and unregistered offer and sale of digital asset securities so. Go bitcoin Yep just the most. Privy. New. World two different types of crimes. It seems like that's going to be never ending train. Brand new in so many ways to criminalize it. Yeah, and it's. It's kind of scary. How technology advances so quickly that we can't keep up with the laws to regulate it. Yeah, exactly so we'll see how that goes. What do you what you have for US Jordan? I have a piece of news coming out of Washington DC House Democrats. They approved a bill to admit. Washington DC its state on Friday and it's not going to go through with Republicans at all. That could be expected. I think, but pretty much what it would do is it would take all of the areas that exist around the White House. Capitol Building Supreme. Court and other federal buildings that are along the what the national law it would that would that would become the federal capital, and then the rest of the city would just become the fifty first state, and the proposed name would be Washington Douglas Commonwealth and that would be named after Frederick Douglass at abolitionist, and there was one democrat that sided with Republicans against it, and then just in a mosh also voted. No, what hit we let me guess was at Mansion. It was not it was Collin. Peterson of Minnesota. Only Democrat to join Republicans in voting against it. The vote was two, thirty, two, one, eighty. I'm sorry this is the House Mansion. Is this No worries yes, Oh, speaking of the Senate there would be two senators allocated then if it because it's state as opposed to the house. The Single House Rep that they have right now. That doesn't even have the ability to vote. So. We'll see where that goes probably nowhere. Tom Cotton Tom Cotton came out and said liberal fight just to get more Democrat votes in the you know in Congress Tom Cotton. Was A tea party darling? He was supported by the tea party and the Boston Tea Party. How to central theme and I tweeted at Adam. I was like, aren't you didn't the tea party? Put you into power. What was that Boston? Tea Party about I. Can't you know there's something about taxation representation? It'll come to me. That is the whole fucking thing was taxation without representation. We've had it in DC. which has more population than Wyoming. A. It's so I'm very glad about this vote. It will not make it through the Senate you're right. I don't think it's GonNa. Make it through. And trump wouldn't sign it anyway, yeah! But it had happened in the House the Democrats Nice. Nice, yeah, another one of the to add to the pile of hundreds of bills sitting on Mitch McConnell's desk. That will go nowhere. Yup, up, exactly all right well, thank you for that. Hey, you remember. The Guy George Nader the guy who struck a deal with Mossad op called in Israel, called side group to provide social media manipulation for the trump campaign and paid them two million in bitcoin right after the election. we'll this January. He pleaded guilty to possession of child, pornography and transportation of a minor for sex, and he was just sentenced to ten years in prison. Which is the minimum sentencing recommendation? I think you should be in prison for life, but here we have another trump AC- headed to prison. Damn, do we know when he reports? That I didn't see that date. Damn, that's a win. Yeah I wish it was more than ten years ten years in federal prison. All I do I do too, but I'll fuck in. This is the sad place that puts us in at this point I'll take it. Yeah, I know right. Yeah, so I think this is conviction number. Nine of trump campaign associates something fucking ridiculous that everyone is. Too busy fielding other news stories to to to notice. That guy's name is all over the Miller report and investigation to. We're talking about him..
A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations
"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.
"jack abramov" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote
"He didn't tell the victims <hes> about the plea agreement because he said had I told the victims that Epstein was going to compensate them or pay them restitution through paying for lawyers for them and choosing their lawyers for them that would kind of impeach their credibility as witnesses like oh you know you're testifying or you're only have this lawsuit because Epstein paying for your lawyer right and so he didn't tell them so he broke the law by not telling the victim's rights act he broke that law and didn't tell them because he thought that because Epstein was paying for their lawyers it would impeach their credibility. Are they going to keep that a secret that he's paying for their lawyers until like the whole thing's over of course they're gonNA find out he's paying for their lawyers yeah and and we all just found out because what we mean if you can look at the Non Prosecution Agreement and it says that not only is he paying for the lawyers but he can veto he has veto power over what attorneys they pick for for for civil suits against him. Yeah that's such a shitty argument by a cost of that's really what it was like. Yeah I mean that's I think he was told that he couldn't do it and I think it might have been somebody high up not in our government but in a different one maybe most odder the Kremlin but <hes> yeah he's not the secretary anymore <hes> and he's GonNa be replaced by Patrick Zella <hes> <hes> who's already under scrutiny for his work with disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramov you reported at this week Jordan in one of our dailies <hes> when they tried to pressure Congress not to impose a minimum wage in the northern Mariana Islands where at the time there was a maximum wage of three dollars and five cents for foreign workers but regardless cost is gone and and <hes> we had thought bill bar recused himself from the Epstein case as he announced he would shortly after his arrest after Epstein. 's arrest and he also did in his confirmation hearings but after he was arrested he said he told C._N._N.. Or C._N._N.. Reported he was going to recuse from all things Epstein but then the next day he recused himself from the new case <hes> saying he spoke to ethics people who told him he didn't have to recuse <hes> from the new one just the old one because bars old law firm represented Epstein in the old case but bars father hired hired Epstein he should be recused from everything involving Epstein <hes> and I'm. I'm a hundred percent certain although I have no proof of this that he said he was going to recuse himself from all things Epstein after Epstein was arrested trump flipped out and called him and asked him to recuse himself itself and he did <hes> just like trump. Ask sessions to recuse himself but sessions did not right. I think you're right because there's too many I mean there's already photos that exist of both of them together and that alone could start a huge nightmare for him. Maybe together trump in sign oh right. I don't know his base doesn't seem to give a shit about anything like that. Oh it's totally connected into this <hes>. He owned a modeling agency. I think he's supplied some of the girls yeah. I think he is too so that makes sense to me. That bar was asked to be unr- accused or to recuse himself. Yeah and trump has a pattern of this is weird that now you have a pattern of asking people to recuse themselves fuck <hes> so he has a pattern of asking his attorneys Rainey's general to recuse themselves from stuff that he might be involved in yeah so it's just it seems obvious to me <hes> yeah. Maybe it's Tinfoil hat time. Maybe it's conjecture but I'm right as we used to say <hes> this week. The Fourth Circuit has has dismissed the emoluments lawsuit brought by the Maryland D._C...

"Biopsy. So there you go we've got that going on. We'll be talking about a lot of news stories that are, of course, breaking news stories. We got to Detsky trucks tickets demand tickets at the orpheum you'll excuse me because I still have this cold is just killing me producer. Joe got me some soup, and I'm soaking wet. I'm sitting in a pool of Tilghman right now. On top of that. I have a pimple right on my butt with a bone is. And I don't know if you use clear so down there. I don't know what to do. But that's just put me in a bad mood. So it starts off that way. I'm sorry to share that much with you. But you'll know why I'm a little, but at the same time, I'm thrilled because making his first appearance in my new shift again sixty nine is Mr. Jack Abramov, former lobbyist producer author of capital punishment the hard truth about Washington corruption from America's most notorious lobbyist, Jack. Welcome. Thank you. Thanks for having me. So I wrote some notes here. And of course, I can't read my handwriting. But the book is fantastic textbook is fantastic. I just started rereading the book, and here's one of the reviews if I can read it. Oh, smart small that says small no, it's smart. Funny charming, clear eyed narrator who confounds every expectation of the media's villainous portrait how about that. So and then it talks about about. That's the one I wrote. But you know, it also talks about the money made. And how much was given to charity. It's really people don't get a full picture. And it's fascinating what you went through. And I know you on a lot as a regular during the day, it's harder now with you in DC. But your stories is pretty amazing. And and when I asked you way, back if Washington has changed its behavior. As far as lobbing you say. Nope. Right. If anything worse stance. The dance continues just different music different uniforms calcium which is pretty Sundance continues. And Jack also the interesting thing about Jack. I've known Jack a longtime. Check is truly a guy who comes at stuff. If you throw the problem, he comes at an angle, I you don't need to think of you don't to come. And you really have a unique way of of approaching problems. And that's why you're so valuable in Washington. So let me ask you this in watching this to start with the wall. And the fact that now the supposedly prepping a draft national emergency order for Trump to fund the wall. He's losing on this. And that he's losing some of his basis approval numbers are going down whatever scenario they're playing right now with the general public doesn't seem to be working. So well, how'd you get if you were advising him? How do you tell them to get out of it? And conversely, what would you say to Nancy Pelosi to win this thing? Well, I'm not by the way. I, you know, it's so hard Peter do invest any faith in these polls because these are the same pollsters, basically got the entire election wrong. Which smart, and so, you know, it's hysteria hard. I don't think frankly, the White House pays any attention to them. I think they may do some of their own numbers. But I don't think there's a perception there are some Republicans the Romney now run the step in to replace flake and McCain, and and that was kind of characters, and there are a few other Republicans who are kind of the usual never-trumper types who are jumping ship or being nervous. But by the way, the Republican party has been historically famous for being pusillanimous for being powder cowardly, and they have now a president who doesn't care about what the media say that he doesn't care what the polls say he's just going to do what he thinks he was elected to do. And I don't necessarily think that hurts him with his base. In fact, I have to tell you if he winds up getting out of this with a deal where he doesn't isn't perceived to have gotten a victory on the wall. I don't think you'll have an easy time getting reelected. To say to say, the least I think it would really hurt him. If he did that. And I think he knows that. So what he's also, you know, what I don't know we hear we hear the Ann Coulter really affected him. And I don't know what extent. That's what I saw too. I think people reading into that. But but he's not going to go down without a fight. And he's trying to figure out how to get out of this. So what is the out first of all national emergency? Okay. If you do that you already sent troops down there in November. We November six came and went and then they left so there's no real invasion right now. As a matter of fact, the Republican governor. Let me just finish. Zone. Governor Republican governor down there saying look, yes, we have people coming into illegally. But it's safe in my town. There's no invasion were you need a national emergency. So it also if you clergy national emergency it then becomes a legal issue. I'm sure they'll be pushed back, and it could wind up in the courts for a long long time. Does that equal win for him? Because he tried is that what the optics are here. Well, I don't know how he will play be the national emergency. And in what form they take? But I think the president has to proceed to do everything he can everything that in his arsenal. Put it to work to try to put up a barrier security barrier for the United States. I mean, Peter you probably stole news yesterday. They were a hundred people climbing over that. But that one fast this is a low fence that they had they had. Here's the answer. From the other side of the answer. Is you had two years where you had the the house you had the Senate and you're the president, wait a minute. Wait that is a false head. They never had. They never had sixty votes in the Senate and Mitch McConnell to frankly, I think I I'm gonna write a column next week about this. I think part of this belongs on Mitch McConnell's plan because the truth is Mitch McConnell should have found a way to do this the same way, by the way that Harry Reid found a way to Rambo care through. All right. That's it. That's the budget. We're going to get pushback and say border apprehensions are down dramatically in the past in years. And the State Department says no evidence of any terrorists who tell us. Why this now goes to a national push hold on hold on they released. They released figures of some pretty vicious and not a few hundred thousand people who've come across some broken laws. I hear what you're saying bears. A lot still going to go to a challenge. Nothing was coming across the border. Let's say rabbits were coming. We have a we have a treasury. All right. Like, Jack, Jack dab. I I hear you. I hear you. And guess what the fact is. But Democrats for years voted to do this. They're not doing it because it's Trump. Let's wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Are you telling me political? Are you telling me, this is all politics on both? Wow. And jack. So why why I've been at this radio station seven hundred and forty two years, and I've been hearing about immigration every day for all of those years, and you go oh jobs. Let's do e-verify and really lock that down. Oh, let's do all the technology. We have and neither side ever. Does it? Why right? Well, neither side does it because there are forces on both sides who frankly empower I'm talking about in congress. Now, first of all you can have haven't had until Trump a president who really wants to do anything about this number one, including the Republican presidents Reagan did something back in the eighties. But he never got back. What he bargained for on that since then the bushes didn't really do anything the Democrats are. No, no, no Bush's Bush's did a billion dollars a billion dollar electric wall. That was like a Christmas tree replugged it it didn't work. So there you go. That's okay. Right. Exactly. Okay. So this guy wants to do something in congress. You have you know, it's not simple where you say Republicans are running the show, the Democrats running the show both parties are made up a very very interesting and very different factions. So it's very tough to corral, all this cats. I think is going to be seeing that bore bore as although they're still really in the opposition. Even though they don't they they control the house of representatives. They're still. The opposition party. Okay. Because there are opposing it. I. Donald trump. Yeah. All right. So I think that wiser nothing anything done because you have people believe very different things, you have people on the right? Who, you know, frankly, most of the people the right to say, look, we got a lockdown the country. We can't say so why won't people in the door? People right. Shut down the jobs. These people on the left. They're looking at these people future, boating, but wait a minute. Oh. Lift the left is looking at the future voting base, which is accurate. The right is also employment because you got the coke brothers supporting immigrants because they need. All right. I didn't say all right. The chamber of commerce and the libertarians. But the majority of the right is absolutely not in that camp. Right. So they should push for e-verify. You you cut down the jobs, you if you take away the jobs, you take away a lot of this problem. Buck there. I I I'm not disagreeing, I think we should have e-verify. But I think there are a lot of that. There is no one solution. So where does this go? So where does this go from here? How does this end you got? Now, you got the country are hurting. I mean, we're getting second paycheck not coming up. We'll the weird thing to optically you've got slow down for a second. But countries hurting or the sliver of the government shutdown is hurting supposedly, let's put it this way. Let's hurting the country. Well, earning the country secure. You want me to go department by department? I mean, they're they're they're well, we know about the lines at some of the TSA lines have been shut down. We do know about that. We do know about lawyers who can't get court dates for their trials. But beyond that, I frankly, Peter I think I just actually finished writing a about this and dot com. Call furlough forever. The truth is most the country is looking at this a collective yawn. You know, why? Because in the past we shut down the democratic. They pulled something called the Washington Monument syndrome, what they did with the shutdown the most visible gems of the government. Okay. The the Washington Monument, for example, the Lincoln Memorial things that would go on to the news turnpike and doing that. Doing that. So I think most of the country's not feeling wait a minute. Edberg government bureaucrat if you're flying if you're flying now, they're saying all of the air, traffic controllers are stressing the TSA, you have people who aren't showing up you've got landlords across the country aren't getting government payments and hard is telling him to dip into reserves that if you're if you're the -ffected by that that's a huge thing in it. Well, I must say nobody's being affected. I'm saying is the general populace of this country domestic shelter domestic violence shelters. Well, look, Peter, you're going to be able to obviously the government is involved in so much of our lives that we'll be able to find projects here and there, but the point I'm making is not that they're not overwhelming being shut down. But not at all. So the villagers. To be making signs yet. In other words, March they're not going to be marching with signs. But then you got Trump's drums bass is certainly not saying open up the government. Okay. So that's number one. But he's gonna look at number two. There have been polls all over the place about it. So this get let's get back to your question. What's going to happen here? I think that what Trump Trump does need to find a way the Democrats also at some point to show that they're figuring something out. I think Pelosi..

The first member of the house to endorse the Trump campaign is Chris Collins from New York who just a few weeks ago also indicted he was indicted on insider trading charges. All of this in addition to all the Trump stuff we're talking about has Democrats talking a lot about corruption. Suddenly on the campaign trail talking about government reform. That's a message that worked well for them before. Yes, in two thousand six. The Democrats had a couple of three things going for him. It was a midterm election for President, George W Bush the Iraq war. Was dragging on when people hadn't expected that there were some soft spots in the economy, but the real, the real thing that the Democrats kept emphasizing was that this Republican majority, which at that time had been running the house for twelve years, and the Senate as well was a majority that had become corrupt and complacent and wasn't really representing the people anymore. Much of the corruption impression that was left was the result of lobbying scandals people who had abused their relationships with members of congress, taking them on long expensive trips, things of that nature for the benefit of their lobbying clients. And that included a guy named Jack Abramov that may ring some bells from some people in a couple of movies made about him one with Kevin Spacey playing Jack Abramov. So this has gotten a certain amount of notoriety to and with Paul Manafort bringing lobbyists back into a kind of special ill repute in recent days of, that's another thing that Democrats can try to connect to society are Democrats still think healthcare is the top. To run on healthcare the economy, they think that there's an argument about putting a check on the Trump administration that can resonate with voters, but they're talking about corruption more. How are Republicans responding to this idea that this is a lot of bad, criminal type headlines?.

"Tens of thousands of dollars to towns that whose budgets are like a million dollars and saying, I will write an anti immigrant statute for you because Mexicans are coming and they're going to ruin your town. And some of these states fell for it and wrote statutes. The ACLU came right behind him with a big lawsuit, and some of these cities went bankrupt. When I read that story and you know what struck me, it struck me how very Jack Abramov Ian it is people don't remember Jack Admiral off the famous corrupt Washington lobbyist made millions of dollars by telling Indian tribes. You had a hand in politics. They needed him in Washington to wheel power, and then got members of congress to introduce bills that were basically dummy bills ran back to the Indian tribes that ooh, you'd better pay me five hundred thousand defeat this Bill. You know he had a racket going. And this sounds just like oddly similar. Like that of is just like there's one little town in Alabama, and I like the decided to look this guy up when he came and offered them and they called some of the other towns and they said, you know, danger don't do this and they, they turned down the contract. They're one of the few that were smart enough to check them out. But also we have another sort of pillar of democracy that's toppling with or politics. I should say with Trump is that he endorsed a challenger to a sitting governor, a sitting Republican governor, and it worked. So I think that's part of two thousand eighteen for all of us. Similarities perhaps to Jack Abramov. Crisco back is likely to be the next governor of Kansas. Although he may be vulnerable a Chana Thomas, let me turn to you because I want to talk about some of the firsts that we saw in primaries across the country on Tuesday. Johanna Hayes, won the democratic primary for congress in Connecticut, sending her up to be the first black woman to represent New England in the house. She'll probably win that race. 'cause it's a, it's a blue district Ilhan Omar. Of Minnesota's one of two Muslim candidates who've won primaries in the past two weeks there and blue district's too. So both of them are likely to get to congress. What about these candidates in and what did they say about the state of the Democratic Party? I think it says that the state of the Democratic Party is really hoping women show up in vote and that women. I mean, women are running in crazy, huge numbers this time around. And I think the statistic that everyone was throwing out was that there are now nineteen women on the ballot to be Senate candidate or to be senators in this in this election cycle, and that is breaking the record of eighteen and twenty twelve and so in, you're gonna see, even we aren't totally done with primary. So you could see even more women on the ballot. What's also interesting though, is the candidate that you mentioned from Connecticut, who would be the first African American woman to represent? Connecticut has said that she would not support, Nancy Pelosi. She's not the only one speaker of the house if the house were to turn over to Democrats, and she's not the only one. And so one of these things you're seeing is there is. A surge of energy amongst Democrats that is undeniable going back to our conversation about Kansas. There are some hints that Democrats are I, I'm not gonna say they're gonna win in Kansas, but they have over performed in a bunch of special elections in Kansas in a way that you really have never seen before. So what we are seeing now is the Democratic Party trying to figure out where the energy is coming from and who is going to win it. I want to move onto some of the president's lashing out this week because he chose some new targets. He has lashed out at the intelligence community before, but he got specific this week and went after John Brennan. The former director of the CIA, here's press secretary. Sarah Sanders announcing a new action taken by the president. She was in the briefing room this week. I'd like to begin by reading a statement from the president as the head of the executive branch and commander in chief, I've unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation's classified information include..

"Of for a donor and friend and in return for gifts and other things. And while they dropped those charges, the Senate did censor him and they were very tough and said that he had definitely not acted ethically. So they've got a couple of other examples of folks. One of serving time it from the house of Florida. Congress woman for defrauding charity. So they've got their own group of people that, you know, you can't stand up and say, are the the, the finest of souls term of art, the Senate ethics committee used in severely admonished. But if you read that letter from the ethics committee to to Senator Menendez, it is none of the facts are in dispute. He did all those things. And I think that he's a very lucky man that the that the. Administration didn't take his didn't basically rejected his lobbying to change Medicare rules on behalf of his friend. The doctor donor, yes. And the voters in New Jersey least are well aware of all this. It was big, big news in New Jersey, but that raises a question of how big a news do you think Chris Collins is in? Say, I o. You know, I'm sitting here thinking, we've spent a fair amount of time here the past week since Tuesday. Anyway, saying that the Republicans after the results in Ohio and elsewhere are almost doomed to lose the house and you almost got to wonder why. I mean, what are the. What are the Democrats doing rather than showing up and putting their name them? I mean, Kim is absolutely right. Here's a party scrambling, desperate fight, figure out something to run on other than Donald Trump. They tried healthcare didn't get a rise. And now Chris Collins of upstate New York who Joe Scarborough on the morning. Joe, I guess this morning said shows Trump is up to his neck in the swamp. Really. It kinda shows how the media swamp is up to. It's his become so inbred that they think this obscure congressman is going to resonate across the country. I think Joe Scarborough has that on a basically on a repeating loop every show just talking about anything that happens as as as the same point. But I'm a little Collins is I, I read the indictment. It's not good. I mean, I wouldn't want to defend myself against that fact sat. Now, insider trading wraps are. Are not always successful, and Collins proclaims his innocence and he'll get his day in in in in court, the the the difference. I think one thing Kim Democrats are trying to do is reprieves their theme from two thousand six, which was successful about corruption. That was when Tom DeLay was running through the house. You had the Jack Abramov scandal, which was a legitimate and serious scandal of influence peddling. You had some of the delay staff were were later indicted and that was that was and there were two or three Republicans. I think to Cunningham remember the California fighter pilot who was I think he went to the pokey. You've got a fair number of, you know, there was some real cases this time. I think much of this is is essentially concocted and there we'll get some traction because these days the most of the media will amplify whatever. Theme, the Democrats raise, but I don't think this is going to do it for them. Yeah, look the. I think the reason that that theme worked for Democrats in two thousand and six because they actually had a point that was the year that Republicans dig it tossed out. And one of the reasons that they did is because they Ben in the majority for more than a decade, they'd become a bit bad and lazy that lost their reformist ambitions and you had a raft of members and it just decided that they were going to personally enrich themselves from their time in DC. And so when they made that claim, I think you know, it resonated with a lot of voters who were getting sick of this culture and we're seeing it in the headlines a lot every day. This one is a much harder case to make..

"That goes into actually having a republican district flip to democrat not because more democrats have moved on the democrats and the demographics have changed but because you have somehow convinced those republicans to go on the other side of the ballot it costs amounts of money that the democratic party hasn't seen the republican party seen i mean it's just that's the thing it's not in touch with reality it's just not by the summer of two thousand six things were far from perfect for the democrats they still had less money than the republicans but a summer wrapped up and turned into fall there was a recurring theme democrats were optimistic for reasons that had nothing to do with their ability to campaign some races were impacted by lawmakers connections to disgraced lobbyist jack abramov part of what democrats labeled a culture of corruption a rising tide of corruption charges against republican lawmakers that was getting worse april two thousand six majority leader tom delay is facing accusations that he violated campaign finance laws he announces that he's resigning from congress july two thousand six a court rules that the republican party cannot replace him with a new candidate on the ballot august two thousand six representative bob naval ohio withdraws his candidacy for reelection he later pleaded guilty to charges conspiracy and making false statements august two thousand six republican candidate chris wakeham is revealed to have lied on his resume about being a harvard grad and a gulf war vet and rahman thorough are starting to feel hopeful but also they're just trying to keep their mouth shut especially in a republican district you're not doing yourself any favors if the democratic party comes and legs starts stumping on graves right you don't need to go you know put it on you may actually put it on a billboard that might actually be helpful but but you don't need to go screaming into a microphone acting like i told you so still according to naphtali the onslaught of scandal after scandal was getting really bad and it was clear that rahm had a real shot if getting the fifteen seats necessary to win the house and i think those moments in that final stretch really made people feel like okay maybe this really could happen that the democrats started off at a big disadvantage but maybe they can actually pull this off this year and just one republicans thought that it couldn't get any worse then came september of two thousand six good evening a congressional career is in ruins tonight a politician in disgrace into famous program for young people on capitol hill is once again under intense scrutiny florida republican congressman mark foley resigned today effective immediately after sexually explicit messages sent to underage boys surfaced as a result of an abc news investigation was only thirty nine days before the election and there just wasn't enough time to make a comeback.
