"That's an important thing and one hopes that we can move on from. There are to have to ask one last question of you as a romantic as you just said yourself about america and american politics and also satirist from primary colors. I guess how different is it to think about right about the american right now. Compared with that period back then we're at the time seems late a moment of kind of polarization and scandal and shifting norms. Well it's no accident. That primary colors was written in the nineteen nineties when we saw the first burst of institutionalized extremism on the cable news networks until on one of the reasons why i wrote the book then was thought that the media culture had changed and no one had ever written a book about the impact of television on politics. It was kind of remarkable but no one had done an novel. Primary colors was the first of those but also primary colors was misinterpreted by a lot of people. I'll tell you an anecdote. At the end of clinton's presidency. I did several interviews with him for the new yorker and after the first when hillary came in and we were talking about healthcare and clinton said why did you write that book anyway and And i said well. Mr president saw it as a tribute to larger than life politicians. At which point. The first lady snorted derisively and i said but first lady would you rather have a larger than life president or a smaller than life resident at that point. She was looking at the prospect of two people. She didn't like it. All al gore. Or george w bush be succeeding. Her husband inch assoc- shrugged in acknowledgement. And i said you know larger life. Politicians have larger than life strains and larger than life weaknesses. Now when i said that i could never have imagined that the situation would devolve to the point where associate path became president of the united states. But that's where we've been. And i think that it's really important now for us to regain our faith in politicians and for politicians to earn it. The last book i wrote was called. Charlie mike which is about this generation of veterans. And how they're gonna be different from veterans in the past because of their counterinsurgency training they had to govern towns in iraq and afghanistan. And they're bringing that sense of governance home. I've been an advisor to a bipartisan group of congressmen democrats republicans. All of whom are post nine eleven veterans who are trying to work together on the issues. We need more that. I'm gonna end there. That's a very good way to end.

"Like of all the things you would expect to see on the table of contents in a book by james comey. Those are not to chapter titles. I actually forget what those two specific titles rebound but one thing is you know about komi is that there is us lee smarmy quality untrustworthiness to him a desire to please and desire to sell books. Obviously every chapter is headed by a quotation. That could come out of whatever passes for bartlett's familiar quotations these days. He quotes the dalai lama. He quotes malcolm x. He quotes virginia woolf and it seems that he's really really trying to present himself as a credible accessible member of the priesthood. Which is which is a contradiction in itself. You say in your review. Let the central question in the book is can an institution religiously devoted to the truth like the justice department survive in a democracy where vast numbers of people believe that the twenty twenty election was a fraud. Now you and i to be fully. Transparent are talking on the morning after the violent takeover of the capital by extremist trump supporters. I want to ask what comey's answer to that is. I'm also curious about what your answer is. Coney's answer is that truth has to be the absolute basis for for life in a democracy. And he's right. I agree with what we're facing now and the reason why this book is not insignificant even though it is repetitive is the fact that we're facing a crisis of the truth. In this country we are facing a society where a majority of republicans believe. The election was stolen when there is no factual basis for that and the major question that we have to face and i don't know the answer is how do we come together again. How do we get to the point where we agree on a common standard of truth and i don't think that's gonna happen overnight. I think that it is going to have an awful lot to do with the nature of the next president. I think that five is going to have to be who is always been which is someone who is decent and humble and willing to admit mistakes and over time. That posture may affect his opponents. I think already the fact that we had this insurrection in the capital has affected the rhetoric of a lot of people on the right who were making the most extreme and dangerous sort of statements. I've always been a romantic about politics. I'm a romantic about this country. And i'd like to believe that we can get back to where we were and i'd like to believe that. The siege of the capital was the low point and that it was a reality check for the rest of society. I was watching fox that night fox news. And they were using words like insurrection. They were saying that there is no evidence of fraud in the election..

"By the time we had all of these cable channels and play. Cynicism became the default position. It was really hard for a journalist especially a beginning journalists to write a positive piece about politician. All politicians were assumed corrupt. Politics itself was the devil's work. I had this aphorism which is that cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre. It's just too easy to be cynical. All the time and donald trump came out of that atmosphere and we have to figure out a way to restore the prior atmosphere where truth was worshipped and komi even though he is an apologetic in this book. He's on the side of the angels because he believes that there can be no replacement for fact based truth. I'm going to restrain myself. I'm having a full side conversation about daniel patrick moynihan i want. I want to go back to robert. Muller explain for listeners. Who might not recall what the relationship was between james. Comey robert muller and i'm curious then how open komi is about his characterization and criticism of me in the book. Well as with almost everybody else. In the justice department komi worshiped muller muller was the gold standard for fbi director during the george w bush and and barack obama administration's and he was absolutely relieved when mower was hired to continue the investigation. That trump wanted to quash which was of the russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election. It was obvious it was agreed upon by the entire. Us intelligence committee and muller went about conducting this investigation for two years and an awful lot of us in the media began to read into things. That weren't there. The central question became what was called collusion between the trump campaign and the russians that probably never existed because the russians were doing exactly what the trump campaign wanted them to do. In any case when it came out muller loud the attorney general william bar to frame the report as absolving donald trump from culpability on the issue of collusion and leaving the door open on the issue of obstruction of just komi wanted a much more clear accounting from muller. He wanted a better. Pr effort from muller. And i think that was impart muller's fault. But i think it was the democrats fault as well because when muller finally went into the congressional hearing the first question from congressman jerry nadler should have been are you saying in this report that the russians actively tried to influence our election and actively tried to hack into our system and buller would have said yes and that should have been the headline the russians were invading us in cyberspace but that never became the headline because in part the democrats were looking for legalisms like obstruction of justice. And so was me. Right about william barloon. What he makes of him and and of justice under him. Because all three of these guys. Robert mueller james komi and and william bar were sort of establishment republicans before this administration will. He doesn't think very highly bar that's for sure. He thinks that bar created a dust storm to prevent the truth from coming out. Have to ask about a couple of chapters in this book because we were talking earlier about comey's character and the fact that he's a fan observing catholic. There is a chapter in here called weird sex and another chapter called show..

"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his <hes> byline primary colors <hes>. And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and <hes>. And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

But the new documentary MLK. FBI returns us to the time when J. Edgar Hoover treated him as an enemy historian Beverly Gauge, explains the FBI Woz Most alarmed about King because of his success. And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people. King's biographer, David Garrow, wrote a book about the FBI's relentless surveillance campaign. Their agents recorded King's extramarital affairs and tried to smear his reputation. The FBI is frustrated that even though they've successfully caught King In 15 or more hotel rooms, and they've distributed this behind the scenes to church leaders to reporters. Nothing's publicly happened now, as black lives matter. Activists face new government pressure Film makes us wonder how much the FBI has changed. The bureau's former director, James Comey, remains dismayed about Hoover's treatment of King. You know this about humans? What we're best at is convincing ourselves of our own righteousness. I think this entire episode represents the darkest part of the bureau's history. Filmmaker Sam Pollard previously was a director on eyes on the prize and a collaborator with Spike Lee.

And I write about the state government or the governor at all. I wrote about the stem races. That's going on at that because it was a pretty much a community of people of color.

Jeffrey Toobin on Writing About Trump

"Jeffrey toobin joins us now from northern Connecticut. His latest book is called True Crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald, trump, it's already a New York Times Bestseller Jeff Welcome back to the podcast. It is a pleasure to be here Michelle. Well, we are talking about probably an unpleasant topic you've been covering this regularly for the New, Yorker, talking about it on CNN, the investigations of Donald. Trump plural I think and the impeachment process at what point did you think to yourself? Okay. This should be a book as well. Right at the beginning you know I have a special interest in fun for independent investigations of the presidency. I was one of the prosecutors in the Iran Contra -CATION in the Lawrence Walsh Investigation wrote my first book opening arguments about that did a book about. The Starr investigation of Whitewater Lewinsky in the Clinton years and so I know that the behind the scenes, stories of these investigations are always interesting. But what was a nerve ing as I started in was that I didn't realize that Muller which completely shut down all access I had to trust that eventually, I would get access to the Muller Office, but it was incredibly unnerving journalists to. Spend almost two years working on his side of the investigation really from the outside even though you've written about impeachment, you've written books about investigations. This book feels different and I'm curious to hear your take on what makes this book in the process of writing the book different from those previous books. Trump makes it different? The president is such an enormous figure in American history, his complete disregard. For norms his constant lying his inability or unwillingness to play by rules that Democrats and Republicans have played for all of certainly my conscious life it makes everything about these last three and a half years just feel different from anything I'd ever covered in anything I've ever felt as a citizen we've had conservative presidents. We've had liberal presidents, but we've never had a president like trump and. Both he as a protagonist in my story and the people who gravitate to him just make it totally different. Okay. Here's one way in which it feels different to me and I'm curious to hear your take and it's about trump but it's also about the reception of trump among Americans or certain group of Americans and it's that every single time there are some kind of event trump takes. Some action that seems to be a game changer. There's this expectation or there has been the expectation. Okay. Well, now, this is the end of this changes things, and that goes back to his not filing his tax returns during the campaign, but then I think the next point was with access Hollywood tapes and it's been that way ever since where where something will happen and people will say. Well now, that's it. You know there's gotTa be a consequence and then there really isn't a consequence I. Think you're right in part I mean you know and and you can go through others whether it was praising the white supremacists in Charlottesville standing by Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, and disparaging the American intelligence agencies firing James Comey which seemed like complete departures from how we expect presidents to behave. Another theme of my journalistic career has been the evolution of the Republican Party that if you go back to Richard Nixon the turning point in Watergate was when seven Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of impeachment and then ultimately Barry Goldwater Hugh Scott John Rhodes went to Nixon and say we can't support you anymore those three famous Republicans The Republican Party has turned into a trump call. And the ability of the president to do absolutely anything no matter how outrageous and retain the support of that forty percent of the country. Is. Something we've never seen before it's been building through the past couple of decades, but I think that's what accounts for the phenomenon you describe, which is no matter what he does the the political architecture of our time really never changes anymore because fifty five percent of the people are appalled forty forty percent of the people stick with trump and thus we have the election we have. So you're saying it's essentially the fact that he's not held. Accountable is a result of the fact that the party has sort of been entirely captured by trump. He has captive and very loyal audience among Americans, and then presumably the other arm of that is what's happened with the media and that certain is catering to and delivering that message. I. Can just add one thing. You know a lot of people like what trump is doing. It's not like this forty percent says, well, you know it's bad that he fires Komai. It's bad that he says, all these races. Thanks their gladis says racist things. I. Mean there are a lot of people in the country who have the same attitudes and I think that's what's chilling for people like me who was. I like to think is not a racist, but the way trump behaves in public it's a feature, not a bug people don't support him in spite of his excesses they support him because it's

Barr says FBI tried to lay a "perjury trap" for Flynn

"Well Michael Flynn is finally free from the department of justice and the FBI you know they really destroyed his life at Mattel intent telling you all about Michael Flynn here in the last couple of days as has all the host on W. B. A. P. of course this is been an ongoing story they absolutely destroyed his life your member Michael Flynn he was there in the trump administration and they really went after him with an intensity and vigor and the reason why they did was because they were trying to destroy not only Michael Flynn but the trump administration now remember the lead up to all of this the FBI here in the last several days was found to have tried to set up Flynn you remember the notes that they found they were finally released but the hand written notes that basically proved that the FBI we're trying to set him up to why they call it a perjury trap so that they could either get him fired or arrest him now my point with the whole Michael Flynn story is that they're trying to get him fired or arrest him get him to lie whatever wise so that they could continue down the path of the Russian Russian investigation and ultimately the Muller investigation see that's what they were trying to do the big question here with Michael Flynn is how high up did all of this go get it go all the way up to the office of Barack Obama and conversely Joe Biden see this has a lot of people on the laughter saying you know what this is all such old news Michael Flynn whatever this doesn't matter it does matter it matters because of Joe Biden it matters because Biden has been running partially on his eight years as vice president with Barack Obama so if Biden was in on the whole Flynn perjury trap thing which I believe that he was then that matters right now I mean to me it matters anyway but if I'm gonna sit here and argue with some of these leftists who you know would say Michael Flynn the whole thing doesn't matter you know if he pleaded guilty anyway well that doesn't matter the reason why Michael Flynn pleaded guilty was because he was losing everything do you know Michael Flynn is four point five million dollars in legal fees that's what the FBI did to an innocent man it is absolutely abhorrent and so the president heard that Michael Flynn the charges were being dropped against him and he was ecstatic I didn't know that was happening at this moment I felt it was going to happen just like watching and seeing like everybody else does he was an innocent man he is a a great gentleman he was targeted by the Obama administration yeah yeah again very big news and what they wanted to do was they wanted to again continue down the path of the Russian investigation and ultimately lead to the special counsel investigation which ultimately blew up and the F. B. I.'s face but the whole point is that they were trying to destroy president trump's first term they wanted a high jacket because he was going to dismantle Obama's policies and they didn't like that the deep swamp the deep state in the swamp they absolutely wanted to do whatever they could to derail the charges and so now the to derail the trump administration and so now the DOJ said in dropping the charges in this was earlier today this is a quote the announcement came in a court filing after a considered a review of all the facts and all the circumstances of this case including newly discovered and disclosed information as the department put at DOJ officials said they concluded that Flynn's interview by the FBI was untethered to you and I'm justified by the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Mr Flynn and that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis yes in the end here's the frustrating thing they knew that they didn't have anything on Michael Flynn yet they continue down that road and here's another question why in the hell did it take so long for them to finally the DOJ to finally drop the charges why is this taking so long I believe they were forced into it I believe that when the notes were discovered in in some of these other and this some of this other exculpatory evidence was discovered and that that exculpatory evidence you know evidence that would prove that Michael Flynn was innocent of all of this was kept under wraps then the department of justice they had no choice but to raise their hands and say yeah we screwed up you know this was Obama's FBI this was James Comey's FBI and you know Christopher Wray and all these folks currently leading the FBI you know they're out there saying well now yeah you know we we've been looking at this we've been watching this we've been considering what to do with all of this ride you were absolutely shame to what I would say because a lot of Republicans are now saying that the F. B. I. need yet another house cleaning because these charges should have been dropped a long time

Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy

"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you

Ashley Feinberg: Politicians' Worst Online Nightmare

"Week? I spoke to this reporter whose articles. I've really enjoyed her. Name's Ashley Feinberg. She writes it slate and I think it's safe to say that like politicians live in a low level. Fear of her. What is your do you have a beat? I mean yes but like it's this is the part of the problem. Is that question like I? The easy answers Internet culture and politics. But it's really just sort of anything I think is like bad or funny or weird. My favorite thing about Ashley is her ability to catch politicians in what are basically they're most unguarded moments on the internet and it's not like she's using hacking tools or any kind of specialized technology to do this. She's just really good at finding embarrassing secrets that are sort of hidden in plain sight. It's it feels like kind of like a superpower to me but it does pissing people off. There's some chorus of how dare you invade this person's privacy and this journalism. This is digging through garbage law which like the Internet is garbage so like it is digging through that capacity but anything you can find out about a powerful public person should be public knowledge. Ashley's first major political catch was in two thousand seventeen when then. Fbi James Comey gave a speech where he said that he had a secret instagram account. I have an instagram account with nine followers. Nobody's getting then they're all immediate and then one daughter serious boyfriend and let him in because they're serious enough and so actually just like. Hey thanks for all the clues that might help me find your hidden account. I'M GONNA go try and find it now. Okay so the first thing she did was go on Instagram and start looking at James Comey's relatives but most of those accounts were private. And it's really hard to get any information from a private account right. Luckily for Ashley. The way that the instagram algorithm worked at that time was if you attempted to follow someone who had a private account. Instagram would be like. Hey I see that you tried to follow this person. Let me recommend to you a bunch of people that they follow God. It's like you're following like if somebody like you and your wife it'd be like you should probably follow their kids. Alright so actually. Requests to follow James Comey son and then instagram immediately recommends a bunch of other accounts mostly people with the last name. Komi but there's one account that recommends which has no profile picture. The account is locked. It has the name reinhold. Niebuhr Ashley was like. That's a weird name. And she looked it up. And apparently James Comey did his thesis on this theologian named Reinhold. Niebuhr so then she's like okay. I'm pretty sure this is James Comey but then she starts wondering like I wonder if this is using him anywhere else and then. I searched on twitter for that same name. And they're like three or four counts that use that username but only one of them. That was fading tons and tons of tweets about FBI engine coming long after she published the article. James Comey actually confirmed that the account was his which was very gratifying. For Ashley. The interesting thing and that was just the FBI Director. Tatton performed like upset well enough to cover his tracks on twitter. I mean how long did it take you a couple of days? I think it's been like four hours to like four hours to find the head of the F. B. I. S. Secret Twitter Account Going on just the follower count and who he follows that's impressive. Yeah meeting that challenge very satisfying so it was a pretty big deal when she found Komi secret accounts but the downside was like he wasn't tweeting anything. His instagram was private. But Ashley's next catch was a little more rewarding when it happened so Mitt Romney was the subject of an article by McKay coppins rates for the Atlantic. Oh actually I actually saw this actually catch. This is really good. So this catch started with this McKay coppins article that basically said like Mitt Romney is now sort of like. He's like a bit of a rebel because he stands up to the trump administration and is willing to sort of speak his mind but and I read the article. I remember and I was just like fine. Yeah Fine McKay great article but actually noticed something really valuable in that article that everybody else missed so at one point in the story Romney tells McKay coppins just as an aside. I have a secret twitter account quote. I won't give you the name of it on following six hundred sixty eight people. Why do they always do this? Swiping at his tablet he recited some of the accounts he follows including journalists late night comedians and athletes and of course to actually this is all gold is like all valuable information. Those things seem like very obvious challenges to me when I read them partially shocked. That McKay coppins wasn't basically following up with a barrage of questions to Romney about what that account was in. How what he used avoid basically so again she was like well. I'M GONNA go look through Mitt Romney's family because probably Mitt Romney's following family members on twitter and his eldest granddaughter was being followed by an account that had it followed about seven hundred people. Yeah and you may remember this. The the name was Pierre delicto. Why Pierre delectable the thing is i. it sounds very much like a Mitt. Romney would choose as a fake name and one thing bunch people said or mentioned was that when he was doing his missionary work he was in France and appeared electro just sort of like a semi French way of saying pure delight and the thing about peer. Directo is that he actually spends most of his time defending Mitt Romney like there. Was this incident where Jennifer Rubin who? Who's an opinion writer for the Washington Post criticized Romney on twitter and wrote quote inside Romney's trump's strategy his strategy is non-confrontation verging on spinelessness? Npr's elected responded Jennifer. He need to take a breath. Maybe you can then acknowledged that people who agree with you in large measure even if not in every measure. I mean. What's funny about this as even though you can tell that he's annoyed at being called spineless And even though he can say whatever he wants because it's an anonymous account he's still kind of like premium proper her cursing yeah and so actually reaches out to. Romney gets no response and so she goes to publish the article. That was a little worried about that one just because I know it seemed like I had two good luck so far that I was like sure that this one's GonNa be wrong But Yeah in pretty quickly afterwards Mckay apparently called up Romney and asked him if it was him and Romney's only comment was same wa Wa is a genuinely cool response to like. It's very depressing to come from like Mitt Romney for

"Bill mcgurn. How are you bill. Hey paul then kyle peterson. Hey kyle hello so let's start with james komi james. I mean bill. You and i have followed. Mr kearney's his career going way back to his time at the u._s. attorney in new york city when he prosecuted martha stewart. I think you wrote that at to'real critical. I got along. I remember getting like like about about a five hundred seven hundred six hundred word rebuttal to that mr komi himself <hes> but we covered word the quattro trial where he used a snippet of evidence to <hes> <hes> to try to prove obstruction of justice got that thrown out of court lost that case we can go on and on and on but in this case the inspector general looked at his handling of the memos he wrote himself and for the file they'll pretty scathing report right the memos were record that he wrote where after his one on one interactions with either either president-elect trump or president trump and whether it was a personal meeting or a a phone conversation and he wrote these things he he included classified information and some of them he later leaked one of them to someone to then leak it to the new york times so the inspector general wrote about this he found some violations of both protocols the f._b._i. Injustice his employment contract and even the law. I think justice declined to <hes> prosecute prosecute. I think rightly in the sense that if you want to prosecute a former f._b._i. Director it should really be for something big and well. I wanna i wanna get at that point but before we get to the prosecution point. What do you think of a the actual description of what he did. It certainly wasn't ethical behavior right. It's very detailed and i think what you come come out of. This is <hes> the james comey was a sneak that he wasn't forthcoming with the president president when he said you're not the target of the investigation. Even though we're targeting your entire campaign and he didn't tell them about that investigation he wasn't honest with congress that i can't can't really talk about ongoing investigations and a few weeks later. He's leaking into a times reporter and his own f._b._i. Team. They said they were shocked and stunned. When they learned earned. They're watching his testimony before congress and that's when they learned for the first time that the memos he wrote went out the door the f._b._i. They they didn't pay attention to the classified ratings readings on it because they just assume this would be in the f._b._i. They didn't know he had shared it with his attorneys by email and that shared it with the new york times he hadn't been forthcoming with them so i think the first thing that comes through is this man who's always touting his own virtue and is higher loyalties was so in awe of himself as immoral paragon that he thought the the normal rules don't apply to him on that point kyle the i g inspector general says says that <hes> jim komi explained his behavior and justified in a conversation with the i g staff as saying well i i was trying to to protect my. I love the f._b._i. I love the country <hes> and he was and and i wanted to trigger a special show counsel probe in terms of the last memo because i wanted <hes> <hes> they against donald trump and this was his the i g he said his personal agenda and if and the conclusion that the i g reaches is that if everybody at the f._b._i. All thirty five thousand other employees i said well you know what i have a higher purpose and i'm going to break the rules pretty soon. You have lawless department. That's true though the context is kind of important and a in the report president trump does not come off looking great either. I mean it's a very vivid reminder of some of the early days of the trump. Presidency so call me is there is the f._b._i. Director the president's going around the chain of command calling him in for one on one <hes> dinners asking him to to pledge his loyalty and then there's this this infamous tweet of course where the president suggesting falsely as far as we know that he may have taped conversations with the f._b._i. I director but of course that doesn't justify as much as he wants it to <hes> the the activity that he then engaged in. I mean to to what bill said. I think really goes goes to to me so he written these memos. He says to memorialize the meetings the conversations with the president <hes> they there was some information that was later classified survived by the f._b._i. And the you get to the end of the report really does it for me if someone goes someone from the f._b._i. Goes <hes> to get those <hes> to get the memos from him which he's some of them he had started his personal residence and to show him the rest of the ones at the f._b._i. Had because he's going to testify before congress and according to the report that's when komi learns that the f._b._i. Has classified some of the material that he has shared with his lawyers in these memos that he has in his personal purcell house and he does not tell the f._b._i. There's classified information here that i didn't realize i shared it with my lawyers the f._b._i. Doesn't find out about that has bill as bill explained until he testifies that he shared a one of those memos <hes> and then in speaking with his lawyers the f._b._i. Finds out that louis have others of the memos. I mean that doesn't look great twice well twice. They have to go over to his house. He hasn't tell him that he has these memos and his safe personal personal safe because he had he had his skiff at his home office. We could have started down there and how's your area where you can store stuff so they were naturally looking at the skiff for stuff and he didn't say in another safe in my personal part well what kinda wanna talk to you about the irreverend saddam trump here look i i. I don't know none of this in any of this critique of komi are we saying donald trump was terrific actor. We're not do saying this to defend trump. His comment that that <hes> his tweet about the tapes with kami was the classic trump stupidity it was an attempt to intimidate komi stupidly and and <hes> what it did was it gave him the impetus komi the impetus to leak the memo and <hes> and then trigger the special counsel report so it was manifestly manifestly dumb. The other thing is trump said <hes> <hes> remember when trump fired komi. He had that long memo from rod rosenstein the deputy attorney the general. It's laid out. Here's why is it was perfectly legitimate. We recommended very good reasons. We recommended in january twenty seventeen. Donald trump not <hes> that he fire komi on day one when he would have had the most credibility to do it because he wasn't protecting anything at the time in his presidency. We also recommended in two thousand thirteen brock obama that he not that the senate not confirm james. Call me to the f._b._i. Type <hes> position because of the past history of egregious judgment and righteous behavior in senior positions at the ah the justice department but trump stupidity does not justify an f._b._i. Director in my view saying well you know i had to protect myself <hes> a- and i'm going to break the rules to do it sure and i agree with that. One hundred percent i the reason i brought that up is just that the context help explains why this stuff is so polarizing polarizing and people see whatever they want to see in it just to provide another example so homies claiming vindication here saying that the i g report says he never shared any he classified information with the media as far as we can tell and president trump has alleged that he's done that in tweet saying james comey lease classified information even with the media says gee report says he did not so now he is a coming to claim vindication on that point so again i mean i i agree with the behavior's not good. The context helps explain why there's no agreement on any of this. I don't know paul your. I think your larger point is if you go back to the rod rosenstein winston memo again written about four months after the wall street journal memo in an editorial when he said that companies should be fired. This was based on his his actions in the hillary clinton thing and rod roses sees wrote. Basically he should be fired because he's inflicted. <hes> incredible damage to the f. b. is credibility and reputation by usurping loretta lynch and a whole host of things that he done well rod rosenstein looks prophetic now and it turns out not only knew the half of things right i mean he was only writing about the hillary stuff. He didn't know about the <hes> <hes> he didn't know about the memo's didn't know any of this so and this is again the the second time that the inspector general has hit mr komi for feeling that he's above the rules at other mere mortals have to obey well and the vindication point gets to the issue of of whether it should be prosecuted william barred the attorney general real decided not to prosecute <hes> komi for this. I think that was the right choice. I agree with you bill. I wouldn't have done that <hes>. It doesn't mean he didn't do it. Would it mean ince's these are these are technical rules and i think he was brazen and how he did it but when you go after an f._b._i. Director it's a big deal and and also james comey's not out of the woods the biggest deals coming down the pike are are the handling of the fiso warrants and so forth and we'll see if something changes with that that that would be a more substantive if there were to be a prosecution that would be a more substantive issue and i think that barr showed <hes> some uh-huh very good prosecutorial restraint here and all i can say is james. Comey is very lucky that he didn't have changing as attorney joe. You might have had a f._b._i. Director to usurp authority exactly all right <hes> we're talking about james comey and we'll talk about the democratic debate. You're listening to potomac watch from the wall street journal if.

"All right hour with the great Bill. O'reilly sixteen years is number one. I cable news as well. As number one in our hearts and minds as well. As number one with books, killing the SS number one your ties bestseller. What a great hit from Bill O'Reilly. I believe nineteen million killing series books. Imprint the most non fiction books ever sold in the history of the greatest nation in the history of the world by right with that number Bill little little highway. But look, you know, it's selling real well for Christmas. So maybe we'll hit it. But it is the most successful nonfiction book series of all time killing series. All right. Well, good stuff. Congratulations. Great stuff. All right. So commes testimony James Comey testifying again, what do you hope to hear from them that we didn't hear last week? I don't think anybody believes Komi now when he said last week he didn't remember more than two hundred times. Nobody believes that comas wanna be charged with perjury. I think he's going to be charged with leaking government documents already admitted doing that. I think that'll come next year. He doesn't wanna compound his criminal exposure, you know, combing knows a lot. But I do not expect him to be candid in these hearings in front of the Senate committee. All right, another government shutdown threat and this time right in front of Christmas. Do you think this could be affected for Trump and the GOP to get the wall, or do you think the American public is getting tired of the threat of government shutdowns, and it might backfire because it's right at holiday time. You tell me, well, I think it's the latter. I think people are tired of it. They don't care about it. The government shuts down unless you're is fishing and Yellowstone. It's. Doesn't really matter. You know, they'll they'll figure out some way to get some money for the wall, it's likely to happen. But it's boring, and it's annoying. And when you're boring and annoying. That's not a good tandem, Wayne, you know, I'm talking about. That's not good far more important is the economy far more important is the stock market going down five hundred points every day now that that's a game changer for Donald Trump. You gotta keep Zion that all right? I'm with you. Although I will say that I thought Obama was boring and annoying, and nobody seemed to mind so I don't know President Trump called the coverage of him unfair. He says the media is belittling he says, they're defaming. He says it should be tested in the courts. What does he mean? By that test in the courts, and is there is some sort of collusion between the media and the Democratic Party to character assassination, President Trump. Well, surely, the president has been not been treated fairly. Everybody knows that even people hate Trump. No that. Tested in court. That's not going any place. First amendment. You know, satire on Saturday Night Live. You're not gonna win those to waste of time. Is there collusion between the media? And the hate Trump forces the Democratic Party. Yeah. There is is that wrong. Yeah. Is it violates the law? Not really if you go back to the founding fathers, all those newspapers ally themselves politicians back then. You know, John Adams tried to miss around with it with the Elian Sedition Act didn't get anywhere. So I think this is more Donald Trump just spouting off blowing off some steam. He's righties treated unfairly. There's no doubt about it. Let me three one less wildcard. Because we we're actually short today. We've we've been quick with our answers..

"York the Russians that he indicted a couple of Fridays, ago that case has been sent to the special counter Intel division of the Justice department where they don't try cases and Byron York has a piece. Today why is Muller handing off all these cases and still handling themselves? Himself? Why why is he delegating all this and Byron York without talk to a bunch of prosecutors In story calls the prosecutor one prosecutor to press it's a it's a neat turn on the way. The FBI redacted document reads let the general consensus is that if Muller? Is? Passing the stuff off that it doesn't really ever fit with what is original charge was That is essentially got nothing And, he can't have the Steele dossier is the reason all this began and they can't have any It read it really when, you stop and think of what this country has been put through For the last year and a half two years and, why now and we now officially know and even though we suspected it for a long time It's, really mind. Boggling anyway York's? Piece says that the fact that Muller is not going to handle these cases himself Isn't it is an indication that there isn't going to be anything bombshell big forthcoming The. Closest to it is these Russians supposedly hacking the democrat computer system and so forth and that case has been passed off to the. Counter Intel division because Muller knows those those. Those. Defendants will never appear in court they'll never be serviced and they'll never enter please there's this a political document that indictment is a political. Indictment that indictment of those twelve Russians is simply Muller's way of trying to show we. Got something we've got some Russians doing something here we didn't waste, our time But none of it is related to the presidential campaign none of that has anything to do with white people. Think Muller began is investigation James Komi very. Very. Worried James Comey I guess in Washington he would be the number two guy behind Muller the most integrity and the most honorable landed Washington. That's that's Muller's reputation Muller is unavailable you dare not. Criticize Bob mother or no Bob Muller, has been Narran done. At all he's. Run the FBI the CIA he's been everywhere And he's a great Republican challenger Bob Muller. James Comey crafted and create a. Reputation for himself He was the number two most. Respected man in Washington so last week or ten days ago Komi tweets Trump is so dangerous the threat. That he, poses to democracy and freedom itself is, such that everybody in, America should vote democrat remember that Every American should vote democrat in every. Upcoming election Komi apparently doesn't like what he's seeing though because there is. A new poll or a new tweet from Komi Warning Democrats against going so far left Former FBI director James Comey waded. Back, into the political fray on Twitter yesterday warning Democrats not to rush to. The socialist left in. Upcoming elections Democrats this, is, a quote now from komo's tweet Democrats please don't lose your minds this president and his party are counting on you to do exactly, that America's great.

"Hello and welcome to the economist asks i'm an mckelway head of communist radio and this week we're asking james comey former director of the fbi has his memoir damaged the presidency ooh the fbi in the summer of twenty sixteen komi found himself investigating both presidential candidates hillary clinton's handling of classified emails while secretary of state and alleged links between donald trump's campaign and the russian government his decisions on those investigations have prompted acusations of bias from both sides of the political divide and they cost him his career he learned of his sacking from tv news the department of justice the state department and the fbi colluded got together to make hillary clinton look less guilty at look a lot better but for that intervention i would've won but it stopped my momentum it drove oaters from me who understand what regardless of recommendation i was going to fire call me knowing there was no good time to do it the latest volley was unleashed by the publication last week of a report by the department of justice sharply criticizing the fbi's handling of the clinton email investigation it accused james komi of being insubordinate but cleared him of political bias it's now a waiting game for special counsel robert mueller's investigation into possible collusion by the trump team with russia which is slated to conclude by the end of the summer at stake is the integrity of the president of the united states of america james comey welcome to the economist asks where are we now what has changed since your memoir came out apart from fat a lot of copies has been a lot of discussion around it but what's materially changed i don't think much that we've continued to see and struggle in the states especially with the implications of this president's way of approaching his job most prominently in the issue about children being separated from their families on the southwest border that that's a really important thing because it illuminates america's values in a way and the way the president threatens them that's a really important change since the book came up that the president trump has just signed an executive order reducing family separation the border so he does look like he's trying to address that do you think that's a sign that there is donald trump is often seen as not responding much to criticism you know him well you've described him up place that possibly he does he takes on more than he wants to show that he texts on ben maybe so i don't know for sure i think what you see here is the american giant is the way i like to think about it the american people are the embodiment of our values and they're normally very busy and living their lives and so they're not involved in politics but they saw what was happening at the border and without regard to political orientation they rose up and express their disgust and that forced action by the president and the issue itself is important but actually the awakening may be more important than of more long lasting to the country melania trump has just been on a visit to the bolden getting on force one wearing the jacket with the logo i really don't care emblazoned on it would you make of that i saw the pictures i don't know what to make of it i said her spokesperson i think said it's just a jacket it's not a message so i'm not cool enough to know whether that's a statement about fashion or something beyond that but you've seen how team trump operates clench up do you think the milania trump that you've been counted would do that without messaging something i don't know i don't know her i've never met her team trump itself at least to my eyes doesn't have a consistent strategy and isn't particularly competent at executing whatever their strategy is so i don't assume malevolence when when accident or incompetence is available explanation i wouldn't think that someone going to visit a center for for incarcerated migrants would wear a jacket.

"That specific a blurb there where where james comey was he wasn't even really critical of the president for being sort of all over the place in the conversation but he founded worth noting in his notes it seemed to me and i wrote this down i think he's taking this guy too seriously in that bbc interview that i reference where he did twenty two minutes with the bbc presenter about the you know the book and his interactions with the president etc he said the question to james call me was were you intimidated by the president because it was along the lines of the loyalty question whether or not the president was asking for loyalty and james comey never said i can't be loyal to you i am loyal to the department of justice i'm loyal to the constitution on loyal to the country something like that he said that there were times where he would just not answer he would just stare at the president and the question was were you intimidated he said i wasn't intimidated by him like by donald trump the man at the office with the office i and i had this great reverence and respect for the physical location that i was in which was oval office and and that meant something to me so i was more intimidated by the office of the presidency and physically the white house that i was in more so than the person and it made me think he so he takes if you can do this i guess he takes the office of the presidency very very seriously but when you put a personality like donald trump in there james comey has no idea what to do with them and he doesn't take what he says syria or i'm sorry a lot of people don't take them seriously but that james comey was ascribing too much in too much character to him like he was taking the president's words too seriously well james comey is a serious guy and being in that setting in the office of the president in the oval office there i can understand that being an intimidating place to be no matter who the president is and that's why when we talked to him i pointed out.
