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

Former FBI Director James Comey says he was wrong to defend FBI's use of the FISA surveillance process
"Former FBI director James Comey admitted he was wrong when he said there weren't issues with the bureau's use of the foreign intelligence surveillance act during its investigation into the trump campaign inspector general did not find misconduct by any FBI people he found mistakes and negligent in over no no no that's not true in the case of Kevin Kline Smith he is referred it for a criminal investigation now he's not saying yeah I mean you know I mean that we made so I made some mistakes that you know I'm sorry he's now claiming this was so deep in the FBI he had
Comey concedes "real sloppiness" by FBI in Carter Page probe
"Former FBI director James Comey admitted he was overconfident in the process used by the bureau to get a court ordered wiretap of a former trump campaign aide call me told fox news there was real sloppiness in the F. B. I.'s handling of a warrant to surveil Carter page page was an early focus of the national security probe into Russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election now coming was asked if the I. G.'s report issued last week vindicated the FBI the FAA I was accused of treason of illegal spying of tapping Mr trump's wires illegally of opening a domestic issue without justification of being a criminal conspiracy to unseat defeat and then on see the president all of that was nonsense I think it's really important that the inspector general looked at that that the American people your viewers and all viewers understand that's true but he also found things that we were never accused of which is real sloppiness and that's concerning as I've said all along has to be focused on of our director I'd be very concerned about and diving into it global news twenty four hours a day on air and on quick take by Bloomberg I'm Doug prisoner

Trumpdates: Bolton vs. Mulvaney Goes to Court
"What is John John Bolton up to and what is Mick Mulvaney up to mick? Mulvaney tried to join a lawsuit brought by John. Bolton and another subpoenaed witness to the impeachment investigation the bulletin lawsuit is unprecedented. Unprecedented and unnecessary. It is asking a court to decide whether Bolton should comply with a congressional subpoena or whether he should follow Donald Trump's request that that he not just by John Bolton as a private citizen now lives beyond control of the president of the United States and there is no legal reason for him to evade that Subpoena Mick Mulvaney dropped his legal attempt today to join the Bolton Lawsuit After Bolton objected to Mick Mulvaney joining his lawsuit Mick Mulvaney says he will allow file lawsuits asking the same question to a judge in both cases. These are delaying tactics designed to slow down the impeachment investigation but chairman. Adam Schiff says they will not committee will not engage in a month's long legal pursuit to enforce the congressional subpoenas of these witnesses but the investigation investigation will take a negative inference from Mick Mulvaney as refusal to testify on the assumption that if Mick Mulvaney had something helpful to say about Donald Trump anything helpful to say about Donald Trump. He would testify and therefore his refusal to testify can be taken as a negative inference against president trump. The first news reports of John Bolton's memorable John Bolton's inevitable book appeared this weekend and viewers of this program new. The John Bolton was working on a book deal the day he left the trump White House since I announced it here on this program. I'm that night because it was wicked. Obvious reports indicate that John Bolton is getting a two million dollar advance from for his book from Simon and Schuster in order to get a book advanced like that the author has to tell the publisher. What the publisher is paying for what the publisher is getting? Therefore there there are people at Simon Schuster. Tonight in midtown Manhattan already know what John Bolton is refusing to tell the impeachment investigation instigation journey. Discussion is Chris. Liu who served as a senior White House aide to President Obama before that he was deputy chief counsel of the House Oversight Committee and John Holliman is back with us. Chris Lewis I want to get your reaction to this legal maneuver that we've never seen before I've got a correct congressional subpoena China. I'm going to bring a lawsuit to ask a judge what I do with it. I think it's fair to say none of this is on the level Lawrence. I mean this is the case of Mick Mulvaney wanting thing to avoid being held in contempt of Congress wanting to delay the proceedings but only willing to abide by the court's ruling if it goes in his favor and so what he's doing really is trying to serrate congressional oversight during my eight years on the House oversight committee part of it was during the Clinton administration we took depositions of senior Clinton administration aides aides. When I managed President Obama's Cabinet Eric holder testified on the hill fast and furious? Hillary Clinton testified about Benghazi. So this idea at the White House. Aides never testified is completely at odds with precedent. And if it's taken to its logical extreme it just completely wipes out Congress's ability to do any kind of oversight and let's not forget the most important point if there's any kind of executive privilege Mick Mulvaney. He's already waited. You'll recall. He stood up in that White House. Press briefing room. Any basically admitted that there was a quid pro quo so again as you correctly point out. If he had something good to say he would be out there saying right now John as we know. Oh two million dollar book advance for John Bolton means he's telling People Book Agent Book at Hers Pitching the material that he's is refusing to tell the Congress yes. I think it's likely that you and I know some of these people. If we went out with the proper implements we'd probably extract his permission them tonight. If we were hard hitting enough about it I think the question bold right now. It's tricky one. We assume let's assume the following through on the base of some of the testimony. Today it does seem as though Bolton was with those people those professionals who looked at this and said this is likely illegal it looks like golden waiting at various points in order to get that eight me released he he is. We all have for our views about job bulletins about politics ideology but it seems in this case. At least he recognize him the legal payroll that was in play here and try to do the right thing if for no other reason to save his own skin now. The question is what is economic interest in. There's two competing things here. Being a hero in this case is probably is economic interest in terms of selling books a a reading public. That thought. The did the right thing. Kim telling that story we'd probably be sell a lot of books. Unfortunately become a hero in the story requires them to testify and if he testifies it gives away some of the stuff that would be the news the book so he's got a very tricky thing to try to figure out here. How'd you land this plane? In the way that drives the most interest gives away some but not everything that he knows so the book is not drainable of its value by testimony the The book Chris quite predictably as I said the first night he when he left if the White House is scheduled for publication before the presidential election because of course if Donald Trump would lose the book value collapses. Right away But and so does a book like this to get cleared. The Way James Comey's book had to get cleared because he worked in the FBI. Since you you know since Bolton works on national security issues is there clearance process for that and can the trump administration simply refused to clear well Lawrence. There's actually two issues. One is the clearance issue shoe. If there's classified information information that might implicate classified information. That's in there. The other important thing was you'll recall trump administration officials apparently signed a non disclosure confidentiality agreement. which trump is selectively enforce or? Try To enforce against some folks including this anonymous book. That just came out and so so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I suspect John Bolton probably realizes on the non disclosure agreement that's not really enforceable it's never been enforceable against anybody and I know he's probably smart enough guy to actually at this point understand what is classified and what's not classified and we'll probably stayed abroad outlines when the book deal is introduced in court art in the Bolton Lawsuit. I'm sure the judge is going to have a a lot of even more reluctance to take the Bolton case serious. Yes that's probably right and look I think. Thank you know one of the things that Chris I think we are all under the impression that people signed these. NDA's has been claimed certainly beginning administration is through. The trump tried to get everyone to sign. I'm not sure everyone. When did side and Bolton came in relatively late to the administration so it's not clear that they were being that they were being as as rigorous about trying to get everyone to sign? NDA's and. I'm certain that John Bolton knows that it's the most the history of the world. So there's no I think that's the one is meaningless. I think the other one is our ultimate question for him in terms of the White House screening issue on on on talks about. If we're going to have to break it there. Chris Liu John Howland. Thank you both for joining

Was investigating russian election interference sugar questions about whether the president was trying to obstruct justice and so i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons by asked him to because i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel commies hope was is realized weeks later when the justice department did appoint special counsel robert muller in an interview in april of last year republican senator tom cotton said would call me did did was wrong. I think that's unfortunate. Behavior on director comey is part and republican senator. Mike lee agreed leaking. The memo's was bad form. That doesn't seem to me to be the kind of the thing. We want out of an f._b._i. Director and f._b._i. Director whose example will affect everyone else in a department in a bureau where leaking seems to be a problem this week's release the inspector general's report prompted president trump did tweet perhaps never in the history of our country.

Call me fired back noting that the investigation found no evidence that he or his attorney shared classified what information with the news media and accusing his critics of defaming him he tweeted. I don't need a public apology from those who defamed me but a quick message with a sorry we lied about how you would be nice and to all those who spent two years talking about me going to jail or being a liar and a leaker. Ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long including the president

"Would you like to revisit your comments earlier today that the FBI ambush? I we still firmly believe the things that may have taken place again that's for the judge to make that determination. Whether he engaged in something inappropriate. What we do know that was inappropriate by own self admitted of James Comey FBI broke standard protocol in a way that they came in an ambush in the way that they function him. And in the way that they encouraged him not to have White House counsel's office president. And we know that because James Comey told us that and he said that the very reason that they did it was because the only reason that they did it was the Trump administration, and they thought they could get away with it. Those are facts, and certainly and there may be other issues there. But that we don't have any reason to walk that back was killing me is because James Comey Sarah sentences right James Comey said that he was on TV bragging about that. He was on TV bragging about he took advantage of the inexperience of Trump is new administration. So again, it's there's obvious things here that makes people very very frustrated people believe in rule of law fair play. They're very very frustrated because they're seeing this band get railroaded, you even have ramp. Well, I shouldn't say even rand Paul rand Paul is a Republican more libertarian.

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..

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.

"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.
