Jan. 6 rioters are raking in thousands in donations. Now the US is coming after their haul
"Some January 6th rioters are raking in thousands of dollars in donations, now the Justice Department is coming after that money. For those who stormed the capitol on January 6th, 2021, it's not just a prison sentence they face, hefty fines are also going along with it. That's because prosecutors appear to be ramping up efforts to prevent them from profiting from their participation. The Justice Department, in some cases, questioning whether the money they have been raising goes to their legal defense when they're getting government funded lawyers. Daniel Goodwin, who participated in the January 6th riots and was convicted, promoted a website to raise money, the feds now want him to give up more than $25,000. I'm Julie Walker.

FBI broke rules in scouring foreign intelligence on Jan. 6 riot, racial justice protests, court says
"The FBI says past searches of a foreign intelligence database broke standards, but reforms have been made, I'm Lisa dwyer. FBI officials repeatedly violated their own standards when they searched a vast repository of foreign intelligence for information related to the insurrection at the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021, and racial justice protests in 2020. That's according to a newly released, heavily blacked out court order. Senior FBI officials attributed the majority of the violations to confusion and a lack of common understanding about the querying standards and said that the bureau has made significant changes since then. The problems could nonetheless complicate FBI and Justice Department efforts to receive congressional reauthorization of a warrantless surveillance program the government officials say is needed to counter terrorism, espionage, and international cybercrime.

FBI Whistleblower Marcus Allen Testifies to House Judiciary Committee
"The Democrat party is the party of totalitarianism They're simply no question about it In every respect in every respect Marcus Allen is an FBI whistleblower In part here's what he said Cut one go Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States the FBI suspended my security clearance accusing me of actually being disloyal to my country This outrageous and insulting accusation is based on unsubstantiated accusations that I hold conspiratorial views regarding the events of January 6th 2021 that I allegedly sympathize with criminal conduct I do not I was not in Washington D.C. on January 6th played no part in the events of January 6th and I condemn all criminal activity that occurred Instead it appears that I was retaliated against because I forwarded information in my superiors and others that questioned the official narrative of the events of January 6th As a result I was accused of promoting conspiratorial views and unreliable information Because I did this the FBI questioned my allegiance to the United States Since I was suspended there's been a dearth of communication from the FBI with interactions seemingly only being forced by actions from my council or members of Congress This gentleman is African American not that that matters but it matters to the Democrats But it didn't matter In the sense that they didn't come to his defense they trashed him

Whistleblower Steve Friend Reveals How the FBI Has Been Weaponized
"Tell us your story. Well, I've lived a few years in the last 6 or 7 months, but I'll try to invest by some of them as quickly as I can for you. I was with the FBI in 2014 until February of this year. I spent my first 7 years working on Indian reservations in the Midwest. And then in 2021, relocated my family to Florida with the understanding I was going to be working child pornography cases. But after a few months, I was reassigned to work domestic terrorism with the understanding that that was mostly going to be January 6 cases. And that is when I had my first exposure to how the FBI's departing very greatly from its rules for caring for investigations, I had a couple of other alarming experiences that were associated with January 6th, and it ultimately led me to decide to come forward to my supervisor, my frontline supervisor, and make some protected whistleblower disclosures about my concerns about the rule departures and that the heavy handed tactics that the FBI is using. And that then started a process by which I went up the chain of command and expressing my concerns at every level, but was rebuffed, told throughout that process that I was jeopardizing my career that my duty was to the FBI and not the constitution, not the oath that I took. And the accommodated with my suspension unpaid last year in September. For a 150 days, I was unpaid. I had my medical information leaked to The New York Times. I had an improper gag order placed on me by the FBI's inspection division. I was accused of inciting violence. And denied the ability to seek outside employment because although I was unpaid, I was still technically considered an FBI employee. I sought outside employment, was offered an opportunity with the center for renewing America, rust votes, crew up in D.C.. They offered me a fellowship, the FBI denied that and tried to deny me of an income. And at the end, I resigned just before testifying in a transcribed interview for the weaponization committee. And we'll have the opportunity to actually speak publicly this week on Thursday for the weaponization.

Trump digs in on election lies, insults accuser during CNN town hall event
"Former president Trump dug in on his election lies and attacks on his accuser in a live CNN town hall. I'm Ben Thomas with a recap. Held at an early voting New Hampshire. It was a contentious back and forth. Trump continued to insist the 2020 election had been rigged, even though state and federal election officials, his own campaign and White House aides and numerous courts have rejected his allegations. He also downplayed the violence on January 6th, 2021 when his supporters stormed the U.S. capitol. The event came a day after a New York jury found the former president liable for sexually abusing a woman, columnist E Jean Carroll in 1996, asked about the case Trump claimed his poll numbers had gone up and repeated his claim to have never met her, though at least one photograph has surfaced showing them together.

Floyd Brown Fights Back Against the Evil January 6 Narrative
"Let's welcome back talking to Floyd Brown, the book is counter punch. And unlikely alliance of Americans fighting back for faith and freedom. So Floyd, you were just talking about the January 6th narrative. And I can't get it through my head. How a lot of people that we thought were on our side, some people who were friends of mine still believe the lie, the fake narrative of January 6th, they're not doing a darn thing to help people languishing in D.C. jails. This is as evil as it gets in the United States of America. This was pushed by many Republicans, even some really good Republicans like Ted Cruz, you know, kind of gave lip service to it like, oh yeah, it was terrible things happened. Show me the terrible things. What are you talking about? This nonsense, if this is, in case anybody has read my von off for book, this is the Reichstag fire. This is a government taking advantage of a chaotic situation to demonize their enemies in a way that had never been done in the history of the United States before. So please continue. No, you're absolutely right. And as I was saying, the morning after Tucker showed just a little bit of that January 6 footage. And so we have to realize there are facts and then there are fake facts. And for the last few years, since January 6th, we have gotten nothing but the fake facts. And so Tucker finally was going to show us some of the real facts and what happened. The next morning, you expect Chuck Schumer to go to the well of the Senate and denounce Tucker Carlson. And that lovely nasal voice he has denounced the evils of Rupert Murdoch, but right after him was Mitch McConnell, who did the same thing. And then they were followed by a group of Republican senators, all spouting the same thing, this completely false narrative. And it's as if they don't understand what was going on.

Julie Kelly Gives Us the Lowdown on the Proud Boys Trial
"Joining us now is Julie Kelly from American greatness at Julie. Welcome back to the program. What is the backstory here? Proud boy J 6 case goes to jury, let's start from the beginning. Who is getting tried? What are the allegations here and why does it matter? So there are 5 members of the Proud Boys, including their group leader and ray gay tario, who have been undergoing this four month trial marathon trial in Washington D.C.. The first set of charges Charlie were handed down to four of these men in the spring of 2021, four of them have been held in pretrial detention meaning denied bail as they await a trial. This will be almost two years, these innocent men have been held behind bars, so this trial is going on closing arguments were Monday and Tuesday. They face seditious conspiracy charges, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, various other charges. So this went to the jury on Tuesday afternoon. They continue to deliberate and we're waiting to see what happens. Unfortunately, this Department of Justice has a near perfect conviction rate in January 6th trials. So it's very likely these men will be found guilty of a charge that is comparable to treason, which is seditious conspiracy. So what exactly did these men do on January the 6th, 2021? What were their actions? What did they do? They did a variety of different things. And Charlie, this is a First Amendment case. It's very important. And I have a lot of coverage at American greatness and greatness dot com. But the government really relied on chat messages and encrypted chats, private messaging. They had almost 500,000 messages, not just for Proud Boys, Charlie, but numerous FBI informants who were embedded in the group months before January 6 who were also present in these group chats.

Rich Baris on the "Massive Blow" of Tucker Carlson's Fox Exit
"Now is rich barris who is from big data polls, rich welcome to the program. Let's talk about Tucker's departure. How do you believe this affects conservative media? Let's play this out. If Tucker remains off the airwaves, through election a 2024, which seems to be a possibility due to contracts, how does that impact conservative media and the 2024 election? I think it's indisputably a loss for the American right of Tucker stays off the air. He was the lone voice Charlie that would not just, you know, for a long time, Fox News was the only outlet for the American right, but they were never fully on page with the energy of their party. In fact, the posed it quite a bit. That's how Republicans ended up Mitt Romney, right? Tucker was different because Tucker, his rise was in part because of the rise of manga, but also because he had long held more libertarian, that evolved into these views that are so widely shared by a part of the public that doesn't identify with Republicans, but agrees with them on wide issues. Like, I don't want to go to war with Ukraine. I don't want to go to war with Russia over Ukraine. I will help Ukraine, but if it means getting into a great power conflict, that's stupid, and I don't want to do it. Right? Who did the January 6 footage go to? There's just so much down the line during the pandemic initially. He was pretty pro locked down, but he was one of the first nightly voices to come around. And of course, he was in 2016, given before his rise is, you know, is big rise. He was someone who heard what was going on in the country. So I think it's a massive blow. There's

Jury to hear closing arguments in Proud Boys leaders' trial
"The lengthy capital riot trial of 5 members of the Proud Boys is nearing its end. A federal jury in Washington, D.C. is set to hear closing arguments in the trial of Enrique tarrio and four other leaders of the far right extremist group the Proud Boys. They face seditious conspiracy and other charges from the investigation into the attack at the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. Defense attorneys in some prosecution witnesses say there was no plan to attack the capitol, and that defendants got caught up in the craziness, the Justice Department argues, the men plotted to use force to keep then president Donald Trump in power and were expecting a Civil War, jurors have heard 50 days of testimony by more than three dozen people and considered a trove of encrypted chat messages and social media posts detailing the group's anger over claims of a stolen election. Tarrio is accused of orchestrating the assault, although he was not in Washington on January 6th, he'd been charged two days earlier with burning a church's Black Lives Matter banner during an earlier march.

More say Trump broke law in Ga. case than NY's: AP-NORC poll
"As former president Donald Trump's popularity changed with his indictment in New York? A new poll suggests that Trump has emerged largely unscathed politically from his New York indictment, where he's been charged in connection with hush money payments made to women who alleged sexual encounters, only four in ten adults who answered a poll by The Associated Press and the New York center for public affairs research believed Trump acted illegally. But 5 and ten believed Trump broke the law in Georgia, where he's under investigation for interfering in the 2020 election vote count and the poll says about 5 and ten feel the same about Trump's role in the storming of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021, and Trump's handling of classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

Darren Beattie's Revolver News Has a Massive New Story
"Joining us now is Darren beattie who just dropped a wild story about a January 6 whistleblower Darren. Welcome back to the program. Tell us about the story. So great to be back here, especially to talk about this breaking story. We just published it a few seconds ago. So it's white hot and brand new and deeply, deeply important. So the summary of it is this, basically, the Biden regime, I mean, the title speaks for itself, Biden regimes 7 year prison sentence for green beret, January 6 whistleblower, reopens, festering wounds of fed's direction line. Jeremy Brown is a green beret, a hero who served as country admirably in many contexts, but not just a military context. In early January, joint terrorism task force agents approached him, trying to recruit him as an informant for something big that was going down in January. Now, how these agents were aware of something big going down in January in early December is another fascinating question. But we'll set that aside for now. They try to recruit him as an informant. He says no, he recorded the exchange and he published it as a whistleblower saying, look, they were recruiting, there were agents in their January 6th is aligned. And after he did that, the feds retaliated against him turning a misdemeanor charge that they weren't even going to charge him into into felony charges that they ultimately sentenced him for 7 years in prison for. The details of this are so scandalous, such an egregious case of forget about prosecutorial discretion. This is prosecutorial gymnastics.

THIS Throws Many January 6 Cases Into Doubt
"One of the most common charges that is flung against January 6th defendants is the idea of obstructing an official proceeding. This is a standard charge. And it's a serious charge because it carries in some cases years and years in prison. Now, there's a second charge that is commonly used against January 6th defendants and that is simply berating in a public building, but parading in a public building is a misdemeanor. And typically that's going to get you if prison at all a very short prison term. So for the Biden regime, this earlier charge, which is the obstruction of an official proceeding, is the way that they have used. They have used it really kind of as a battering ram to go after these January 6 defendants saying you're facing years in prison. You've got to take a plea deal or in some cases so you go to trial and by being convicted on this charge, you find yourself facing years and years in prison. Now, recently, there was a very interesting interview, somebody who was on the jury in one of these January 6 cases was I believe on C span, or at least I heard a recording. And she was talking about the fact that in the jury, she was able to convince her fellow jurors to find defendants guilty on this charge, obstructing an official proceeding, not because they in fact obstructed anything because people were raising questions in the jury like what did they obstruct? Was something actually going on when these defendants entered the building, and the jurors had basically I convinced people that nothing has to be going on. Just by being in the building, they're obstructing a proceeding.

FBI Wasted Hours on Jan 6 Investigation
"I was talking about these J 6, mostly peaceful protesters. Some of the J 6 rioters, the FBI devoted 16,000 more hours to them than they did the BLM, the BLM rioters. And you've just written an article concerning some of these adjacent protesters. Talk to us about that. You mentioned something on the break that just shocked me. I mean, I look forward to reading it here. So yeah, so a new issue in some of these January 6 prosecutions. I mean, it's always been a bit of an issue is exculpatory evidence or what they call Brady evidence. So there is a case back in 1963. It's a landmark Supreme Court case called Brady versus Maryland. It's in criminal law one O one. And that case held that the prosecution can not withhold any exculpatory evidence because that violates their due process rights. So all along, we felt like the DoJ was withholding evidence or just not giving all the evidence. They can't just say to a defendant, well, here's the evidence that we're going to use the prosecute you because who knows how much evidence they've overviewed that might show that defendant in a good light or might show that he wasn't really there. And so they can't just withhold that from you. So I worked in criminal courtrooms for 20 years. So I kind of knew a little bit about this.

Prosecutors reveal planned Proud Boys witness was informant
"Prosecutors have revealed that a planned Proud Boys witness was an informant. I'm Lisa dwyer, a lawyer for one of the former Proud Boys leaders charged with seditious conspiracy, says federal prosecutors have revealed that a defense witness was secretly acting as a government informant for nearly two years after the January 6th, 2021 attack on the U.S. capitol. Defense attorney Carmen Hernandez asked a judge to schedule an emergency hearing so the defense can learn more about the prosecutors use of the informant. The judge ordered prosecutors to file a response to the defense filing by Thursday afternoon and scheduled a hearing as well, putting testimony in the case on hold until Friday. Hernandez said the unnamed informant participated in prayer meetings with relatives and had discussions with family members about replacing a defense lawyer on the case. Law enforcement routinely uses informants in criminal investigations, but their methods and identities can be closely guarded secrets. I'm Lisa dwyer

Kash Patel and Sebastian Unpack the Newly Released J6 Footage
"You're a former terrorism prosecutor for the DoJ. So we've got the footage here that Tucker's team released of Brian sicknick, the puts to bed, for example, that he was murdered by the January 6 protesters. We see him after he was allegedly murdered, walking around the capital. Do we have the footage, Eric? But Brian sicknick should not be reduced to a prop for the political ambitions of the Democratic Party. He was a human being. The facts of his life matter, including how he died. To this day, media accounts describe sicknick as someone who was slain on January 6th. The video we reviewed proves that is a lie. Here is surveillance footage of sicknick walking in the capitol after he was supposedly murdered by the mob outside. By all appearances, cyclical. So we see he's fine. He's walking around in a helmet. We see the footage of Jacob chansley, this quote unquote James shaman, being a Scottish through the building at times by up to 9, 9 capital police officers, you're the former prosecutor, are there any forget politics? Are there any legal ramifications? Can we get this guy out of prison who's given 41 months? What happens to everybody else? You're the expert. Is this just a political win or is there something deeper going on here? Well, there's got to be analysis look as a former federal public defender who challenged the DoJ out DoJ on so many cases in federal court about what we call Brady violations, violations by the DoJ prosecutors for failing to intentionally disclose exculpatory evidence and evidence of impeachment. So it's called Brady and giglio. Let's put the legal parlance aside. What due process the constitution the Supreme Court demand prosecutors in the DoJ must turn over all evidence that even might be evidence of innocence and evidence of impeachment. They don't have to use their judgment to answer the question. It's just a maybe. 41,000 hours of videotape said is evidence.

"Good winning in 2021. We heard colonel John winning in 2008. Interesting notes about the sham steak. So this is a race like a lot of these races in Southern California that has been dominated by trainer Bob Baffert. The race has only been in existence since 2001, so basically about 21 years of running this race in baffert is one 8 times, including the last three new Grange last year, life is good before that authentic. In 2020, and of course, he would go on to win The Kentucky Derby. And the breeders cup classic, looking at some of the other horses who have won this race, bob and John won the race. We heard colonel John. By the way, there were three races. You may remember there was a three year period where San Anita like everyone in Southern California thought that synthetic track racing was the way to go, turned out to be a mistake for the most part in Southern California, but O 8 O 9 and ten synthetic track runnings of the sham and colonel John won one of them aboard with Garrett Gomez aboard who unfortunately is no longer with us. Garret Gomez won the race four times in his illustrious career. Other horses that have gone tapas are, it was a really nice horse for Steve asimus and won the race golden sense. Won the sham, of course he was a back to back breeders cup dirt mile champion. Calculator real nice horse collected gormley turned out to be a good horse going on to win stakes later on in the year at San anina McKinsey was a really nice baffert trainee and if you are a fan of Bob Baffert, well this is your kind of steak not only does he win at seemingly every year. But he's got two thirds of the field this year. Four of the 6 runners are Bob Baffert trainees in this year's edition of the sham national treasure will very likely be favored in the race. Three starts three in the money appearances, including a third place finish last time out where he was and beating a hole all that far in the breeders cup juvenile by forte and cave rock his stablemate doesn't have to deal with forte or cave rock on Sunday. Speedboat beach is going to be interesting in the race. He's a horse who has been on the turf. His last three starts, he won routing on the turf last time out, but he's an interesting horse because his debut effort was 5 and a half furlongs on the dirt at del mar and speed figure wise, it looks like that's his best effort. He may be a dirt horse all along that just has been running on the turf. His last three races, so it's intriguing. And the other bad for trainees in there looked like their horses with promise. And the horses that are not bad for trainees packs a wallop and spun intended spun intended look great breaking is made in last time out. He looks like he could be a nice horse going forward. Packs a wallop is already a proven turf router, don't know how he's going to do on the main track. I think they may be running in this race to see if they possibly have a horse that they want to go down The Kentucky Derby path with. If he doesn't run very well in the sham and they'll probably head back to the turf course where he's already proven that he's very, very capable. We'll see how he does against his more accomplished dirt foes this Sunday in the sham always a good reason. It doesn't seem like it's usually a big field and kind of like what we see with those stakes at the end of the year at Los alamitos. It's Bob Baffert in a few others. And that's just the way it is. He's got so many good horses out there that I think he scares off a lot of the competition and let's face it some of the competition doesn't want to have to ship to get away from him. You know, it costs money to do that. And it's not necessarily just as easy as saying, yeah, we're going to go run over here. We're going to run over there. Not everyone wants to wants to do that, not every horse wants to travel. All that kind of thing. By the way, the interesting kind of cloud hanging over the sham and all of these races, the sham is theoretically a points qualifying race on the road to this year's Kentucky Derby, but of course Bob Baffert, once again this year, not allowed to run horses at Churchill downs and his horses are not eligible to earn Kentucky Derby or Kentucky oaks qualifying points. So if any of the four baffert trainees finishes in the top 5, obviously, you know, at least three of them are going to finish in the top 5. They're not going to get the points they normally would get in the winter is supposed to get ten points. It doesn't sound like a whole lot, but that ten points could be the difference between definitely getting in or hoping to get in, like rich strike did last year. Let's not forget rich strike was not, you know, he was the last horse in, but got in because there were four or 5 defections in the last few weeks that could have gotten instead of him. And of course, ethereal road being the biggest one defecting about 24 hours before Kentucky Derby day. So it'd be interesting to see what these baffert horses do and then after this, what they decide to do with these horses if they think that they're Derby type of horses, do they wait until the last possible prep race to try to earn points and to send the horse to either Tim yak teen or Sean McCarthy or maybe a different trainer this year.

He's another one who would benefit by a hot early pace as it looks like he does his best running either from mid pack or a fueling spec. He's shown speed in the past. He broke his maiden in wire to wire fashion, but since then, since he's been facing winners, he's been more of a pressing or rating type of horse has this gelded son of daredevil, see if there's enough pace where he's my honey badger and tejano twist and the other closers to come running or if the frontrunners like nobody listens, just get out and keep on going. They're loading into the gate now, double loading as they basically always do at Oklahoma park. A lot of things to like about Oklahoma park two of the one of the things I really like is their punctual. They pretty much run their races when they say they're going to run their races. They don't drag. They might have delays for other reasons. They don't really drag too much. Like a few other tracks and they load fast and they get them going. Last few going in for the 9th and final. Here's number ten chat a lot. Our good Jeff bloom part owner of chat a lot who figures to show speed, fixed offer with the call. Nobody listens, broke beautifully, goes to the front from 7 nation army and kavadh, Canadian pride is in the firing line. So is chat a lot 5 right across the racetrack. Tut's revenge is next. Then comes lichen and he's my honey badger and the trailer is the stretch running to hano twist. It is nobody listens the leader into the far turn. He's a length and a quarter in front of kavadh, Canadian pride and a four wide chat a lot. 7 nation army is 5th with four links to make up. He's three in front of tuts revenge. Then comes he's my honey badger. He's got 9 to make up to hano twist is starting to unwind and he moves through at the rail. He's also 9 off the lead, which is held by nobody listens. Nobody listens a quarter mile from home and a length and a half in front of kavadh in second to hano twist catches the eye. He's moved up to mid pack. He's angling in the center, and he's got a lot of forward momentum. Nobody listens leads. Kavadh's end second, 7 nation army. Tut's revenge in here comes tano twist to split horses, and he is on the move. Nobody listens. 7 nation army tejano twists now with an length of the late and here he comes to hano twist. Nobody listens 7 nation army to hano, twist yes. To hano twist ran down a threesome for second, tuts revenge, 7 nation army or nobody listens. Any one of those three could have finished second. Pretty tight photo there between numbers one, two, and three for the minor rewards, no doubt about the winner, the favorite tejano twist who is last going to the half mile pole, but behind a very fast early pace they went with 21 and change for the quarter, 44 and three for the half. Nobody listens ran a good race, but tejano twist got the pace he wanted and he got a good ride by jockey Francisco areata to not have to lose ground split rivals and come a run and get up in the final strides he ends up even money at post time as tejano twist and unofficially getting his third win in a row. Going to take our final break when we come back. We owe you prices at San Anita. We'll wrap up the card at Oak Lawn, look forward to another big state coming up this weekend.

And some good, some bad, but back off a little bit of a winter hiatus with another edition of the weekend takes pre with 12 races we're looking at. I know we've got races from aqueduct. Oak Lawn, San Anita, where else are we looking at this we aqueduct Oak Lawn, San Anita, Gulf Stream park as a couple races we're looking at as well. Race is both Saturday and Sunday at some of the tracks. So that coming up about 35 minutes from now. And. I don't know who Dave likes yet in some of these races. My guess is so I am trying to beat the favorite in the drone this year. I have a feeling Dave will at least use the horse that I'm playing. It looks like kind of a more of a pace play for me. I think there might be some speed in the race and there's a chance that somebody could come closing. I wonder if Dave feels the same way. We'll find out in about 35 minutes as well. We'll look at the we'll look at the Jerome early on in tonight's weekend stakes preview presented by nyra bets. Okay. We're going to take a break when we come back. We're going to head back out to the track. The horses are in the paddock ten minutes to post for the 6th race at San Anita in the paddock 16 minutes to post for the 9th race at Oakland. This is betting with Bobby on HR RN. Did you know that when you make time to do three simple things each day with your children?

So looking ahead, we've got about 16 minutes to post for the 6th race at San Anita 22 minutes to post for the 9th and final on the card at Oakland. Getting back to what we heard coming out of break in forensic fire winning the 2018 edition of the Jerome, the Jerome, I think, for a long time, was a handicap. Now it's the Jerome stakes. This is a race I did not realize until I was doing some research on this race. How old the Jerome was. The first running of the Jerome, 18 66, 1866, trainer Jacob pincus won the race three out of the first four years that it was run. So this is a race that has really changed over the years. It was a long distance race run at Belmont park. In the later part of the year, much of the early years, including a race that was won by the first ever Kentucky Derby winner aristides in 1875, he won the race after he won The Kentucky Derby, and he covered the distance, which I'm guessing was two miles in three minutes, 43 seconds flat. So how far were they? Is that a two mile race? Were they running three 43 for two miles? That sounds like pretty close. I mean, it could have been even more. It could have been like two in an 8th or something like that. But it was long distance race. It wasn't a mile until 1914 when it was still run over at Belmont park. And then it eventually they ended up not running the race back in 2010 and then for a few years, I think it was run during the. Fall meet maybe an aqueduct and then for the last ten years or so, it's been the early part of the year at aqueduct in one of the early prep races, if you will for the Triple Crown season and obviously the major three year old races at aqueduct, the wood memorial and the Gotham and things like that. Big names have won the Jerome over the years. In fact, there have been 6 Kentucky Derby winners who have won the drone. Now they all won the Derby before. They won the Jerome. Aristides Fitz Herbert, bold ruler, Kelso, carry back and fusaichi Pegasus the last one to do it in 2000. I think that was kind of his return to the races after a few month layoff when he went in 2000. So far, nobody who was won the Jerome in this early part of the year has gone on to win The Kentucky Derby. We've had some pretty good horses in the last 7, 8, 9 years that have won the race el Kabir was a nice horse that John Terra nova had forensic fire, of course, turned out to be a really good sprinter, maybe up to a mile at times, mind control won the race in 2019. He just retired recently. He was, he's been a hard knocking sprinter miler for several years, independence hall. I remember at the time thinking that independence hall was the fastest of the three year olds I had seen at the time in 2020. He was fast in a race at the end of the year as a two year old. He ran a really good race in the, in the Jerome as a three year old. And he turned out to be a nice horse. I don't think he ever turned out to be as good as the folks from eclipse thoroughbred's thought he was going to be. But he did run in big races and he did win plenty of money during his career, but he unfortunately he didn't he didn't really get to make a serious run at any of the terrible crown races and he had some I think some injury issues along the line. But when he ran, he was really, really good. Last year's wrong winner was corvae, he's another one. He cap cocaine has won this race. There have been several that have never gone on to really be billboard type horses, will tomorrow yield us another one of these non billboard type horses or maybe there's a forensic fire or a mind control or a girolamo or a discrete cat or a silver train in the race of course some of those once again running in the Jerome when it was run at Belmont park and toward the end of the year instead of aqueduct at the beginning of the year. But it's a good field and by the way, the Jerome one of 12 races that Dave Friedman and I will discuss tonight on the weekend takes preview presented by naira bets, which of course is tonight in every Friday night from 6 to 7 p.m..

"Ah, the easy to recognize voice of Terry Wallace on the call of the 2004 grade two Arkansas Derby won by the undefeated smarty Jones. Welcome back to betting with Bobby here on the horse racing radio network. I'm bob Newman. Please now to be joined by ray Lopez, who was the agent for Stuart Elliott, the gentleman who rode smarty Jones through all those victories, including in The Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Ray, thanks for taking some time, my friend. No problem, Bobby. Glad to be here. Well, you know, we just listen, we got to see this year's edition of the smarty Jones stakes last weekend at Oak Lawn park and the race was named in honor of smarty Jones because I think he's still the only horse ever who swept all three big three year old steak races at Oak Lawn and then went on to win The Kentucky Derby, won the southwest. He won the rebel, both of them were not graded stakes at the time. Then he won the grade two Arkansas Derby, and of course won The Kentucky Derby. So now with the extended meat at Oak Lawn park that are able to have a fourth big three year old steak and they've named it in his honor, going back to smarty Jones when he started in 2003 as a two year old at Philly park and then was so good as a three year old in Arkansas and into the Triple Crown races. How early did you and stewie Elliott know that this is a horse you need to follow? Well, probably when John service always had a lot of two year olds and we were working in quite a few of them forum and he stood out. Right from the very beginning from the very first work he did, it just was very impressive with him like the only issue we ever had with him was the starting gate. He was a little reluctant to get going there. But you could pick him right out and like I said, I was riding horses for many other people because John and also a few other two years also the decision came down to when it came down around November. It was time to make a decision. Well, he made his debut November 9th of 2003 at Philly park. And he was even money in a pretty big field that day. I think there was a field of ten that afternoon. So even money first time out in a big field and then he ran away and hid by some 8 lengths. Obviously, this was when you talk about international good things. The word was out on smarty Jones. Oh yeah, because his works were incredible. I witnessed him work many times in the morning before he got there in. The way he did it. It wasn't the fact that he worked very fast times. It was the fact that the way the way our horse does it. I mean, he would knock out a 46 half volume without even just trying to slow him down and what I saw was that man. What is this? Hope that he can keep going. I believe that if he would have been going on that path, he could have been probably the fastest winner in the country. He was that fast, but of course he was trained when we figured out how good service decided he was going to throttle him down and try to see if we would stretch out. So he follows up that maiden win by winning the Pennsylvania nursery at 7 furlongs by like 15 lengths. He went one 21 in four. I think that day. And then he goes to the count fleet. Were there any concerns at all that once he finally got around two turns into the southwest and the rebel that he would be able to keep going those longer distances? There's always that concern because he's breathing wasn't exactly to go to turns. But the fact that the horse had so much heart and he really wasn't exerted that much. He was just the big concern when he first read an account fleet was of course the first time to turn the ego up category. And he sure did. And he did it quite easily. And he has kept progressing from there. The horse was a very outstanding individual. I mean, just one of a kind. I mean, it's hard to find them that way, you know? Speaking with ray Lopez, who was the agent for jockey Stewart, Elliott, back when smarty Jones was making his run toward winning the 2004 Kentucky Derby. So I have to ask you this. Now that you're not an agent anymore. But I know that you're still in the game. Your stakes coordinator on morning line maker of placing judge up at Prairie Meadows during the summertime. But looking back to your days as an agent, when you have a horse like this, where it seems like, you know, he is easily the most important thing for you and Stewart Elliott at that time. Are you finding yourself making sure that you don't upset John service and the owners in any way? Anything they want you to ride, you'll be there to do what they want or are you still able to go about do your own things and knowing that you have this one to ride when it's time. No, you know, we really didn't write exclusively with gun service. We kind of we were all personal friends before that before, even before I had Stuart Elliott and all that kind of stuff. So he always lets us let us do pretty much like you had to do this and that. Continue, we get a lot of other business at the time. It's too early. We were leading rider by many in that meeting and so we think it's in Philadelphia park, which was called then. There is a big influx of shipping horses there. So you always have we always pleasure we rode for people out of Maryland. We rode for many, many people. So he was pretty flexible with that. But the trick to smarty jolt at that time when he became smarty Jones was trying to stay on them because there was always forces, big name riders who tried to get us off, even though we were undefeated with the horse before hitting The Kentucky Derby. And that's part of the game. That's not something that's unusual. The agents are always trying to secure the best mounts for their riders. And when you have a guy like stewie Elliott, who's a good writer, but he's not the billboard, right? You know, he's not Jerry Bailey. He's not Mike Smith. He's not those guys. Is it normal for the agents of those billboard name riders to come swooping in and trying to make their play? Cool. Absolutely isn't. I would do the same thing. I mean, you wouldn't be doing your job if you weren't. But namely, those a couple of those names you mentioned called John service because I was sitting in this office when they tried to secure them up for The Kentucky Derby. I'm going well. That's pretty good. Luckily, and it's always when you get the big name writers like Gary Bailey at the time and those guys when they say they see the horse was that good. They go, well, hopefully it could persuade the owners. They go well, their pitches will this guy is good. He's a very good writer, but like you said, not a billboard name, and he's hasn't been in those big events. You can get Jerry Bailey. You can get whoever out there, the names were at the time. And yeah, it's a concern, but luckily they were loyal and to us and they stuck with us. Going back to that first Saturday and may, which ended up being made first in 2004, smarty Jones ends up being the slight favored in the Derby. And of course, comes up a real rainy sloppy racetrack that afternoon and he's running against significantly stronger competition than one he had seen in Philly and in Arkansas lionhearts in the race and the cliff's edge and tap it was in the race and bird stones in the race. What was your biggest concern going into that race? Was it the field size, the strength of the field, the track conditions? What were you most concerned with? Well, definitely another track condition with the horse loved the slop.

"They just went official at both San Anita and Oklahoma park, about 20 minutes to go till the next at Santa Anita 23 minutes for the 7th at Oakland. They're on the track in warming up for the finale at aqueduct. 9th and final race on the Friday afternoon. If you're a fan of Manny Franco today is your day. You should have been playing. He's already won 5 races on today's card at aqueduct. This 9th and final race, by the way, 47° in Queens, New York, mostly cloudy skies. They've had some showers on and off throughout the afternoon. The track has been sloppy all day. 9th raised one mile, a one turn mile optional claiming allowance event. These are four year olds and up non winners of two other than or in for a claiming tag of $62,500 scratch. The one, no burn. We've got 9 of them going to post in here. The ones who were getting the most money right now, the favorite is number 9 kurland's wisdom for the team of Linda rice and Jose lezcano sources not been worse than second in any of his most recent 6 starts. All of them against a little bit softer than what he's going to see today other than he did run in the empire classic. It was a race against state breds that day, but he ran a good second. He's coming off a win against a of the then competition last time out taking the logical step up to this non winners of two other than competition today. 7 in the money appearances from 8 career starts on the main track at aqueduct and over all he's been in the money 13 of 15 lifetime starts. So not that I'm encouraging people to play show bets, but if you're show wagering on horse like kurland's wisdom, you're probably ahead of the game because by the way, he's very rarely favored in his races. He keeps running good races and other than last time where he was the three to two favorite. He has not been favored in his other 9 of last ten starts. So kurland's wisdom is being bet to try to get the job done once again. This time for the second time in a row. The second choice on the board number 5 win it for John Kimmel and Kendrick Carmouche taking a significant drop in class from the discovery handicap last time out where he finished a decent fourth behind eloquence and barista and naval aviator now back in against allowance foes, two starts back, he beat a other than competition pretty easily by some two lengths as the 5 to two favorite that day. His lone start on a wet racetrack was last time out in the discovery and even though he didn't hit the board that day. Speed rating rise, he ran about as well as he runs on a fast track. He just ran against tougher competition. So I'm not sure if the sloppy track is going to hurt his chances or not. I would think it would not, as far as the favorite kern's wisdom goes, he's been on a wet race track or an off track, which an off track is anything that's not listed fast. So technically a good racetrack is listed counts as off and you know if you've been playing this game long enough that there are good racetracks sometimes look as dry as a fast racetrack. You know, it's just it's kind of a judgment call and it might be the race before they upgraded to fast or the race before they downgraded to sloppy, something like that. But kurland's wisdom has been in the money for a 5 tries on tracks rated off so the two favorites have experience with that. If you're not interested in those, the other ones who are getting the most play number four, I am the law for John terranova and Jose Gomez coming off back to back wins once against one against starter car allowance competition. One against a other than level allowance competition. So we just continues up the ladder. By the way, he beat kurland's wisdom in that a other than win back on December 2nd and kurland's wisdom came back and beat those kind of that kind of competition in his subsequent start. But kurland's wisdom getting more money once again than I am the law. Also number ten bourbon calling getting a lot of play. He was 12 to one on the morning line. He's down to 9 to two right now, for Antonio arriaga and Manny Franco coming off a good second at the $32,000 claiming level last time out. So first off the claim for Antonio arriaga who does just fine in these scenarios winning about 1718% of the time, Manny Franco gets on board for the first time. I wonder how much of this money is playing the hot hand. I think we see this a lot with the real top riders, the irad Ortiz Joel Rosario flavian Pratt, those, you know, the guys that seem like they're going to get better all the time. I'm not sure if I've seen this normally with Manny Franco. But Manny Franco gets aboard and once again, he's already won 5 races on the card today at aqueduct, and there are more people than expected to obviously think that he has a chance to get the job done for win number 6 aboard bourbon calling who has not won in a while, no wins in 2022, no wins in 2021. Prior to that, he had 5 wins from 21 starts. Unfortunately, he's over his last 11, at least in this race. We'll see if he can get the job done today. He has run on a wet track three times in his career, no wins, no seconds, two third place finishes to his credit, but I like the outside love, I would rather be outside than inside for these elongated sprints, you know, 7 furlong 7 and a half, one mile where it's one turn. I just think it's better to be able to go in the gate last, not have to worry about anyone crossing over from your outside and you've got so much run until you get to the turn and have to get positioned. I think the outside usually is where you want to be. It doesn't mean you can't win from the inside, but I like the outside runners in general post position wise. Let's go out to aqueduct for the finale. Speed from in between horses there comes uncle moonlight is going to be in the early fray. With the early mix and also manor house is there tightly bunched here as they get set to come out of the chute.
THE NEWS with Anthony Davis

"5 minute news. January 6th investigation subpoenas Donald Trump for testimony. Supreme Court rejects Trump's request for help with Mar-a-Lago documents. And Parkland school shooter gets a whole of life sentence. It's Friday October 14. I'm Anthony Davis. The January 6th committee voted unanimously on Thursday to subpoena former president Donald Trump demanding his personal testimony as it unveiled startling new video of close aides describing his multi part plan to overturn his election loss that led to his supporters fierce assault on the U.S. capitol. With alarming messages from the U.S. Secret Service, warning of violence and vivid new video of House speaker Nancy Pelosi and other congressional leaders pleading for help. The panel showed the raw desperation at the capital. Using language frequently seen in criminal indictments, the panel said that Trump had acted in a premeditated way ahead of January 6th, 2021, despite countless aides and officials telling him that he had lost. Trump is almost certain to fight the subpoena and decline to testify. In the committee's tenth public session just weeks before the congressional midterm elections, the panel summed up Trump's staggering betrayal of his oath of office, as chairman Benny Thompson put it, describing the former president's unprecedented attempt to stop Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden's victory. While the effort to subpoena Trump may languish, more of a nod to history than an effective summons, the committee has made clear it is considering whether to send its findings in a criminal referral to the Justice Department. In one of its most riveting exhibits, the panel showed previously unseen footage of congressional leaders phoning for help during the assault as Trump refused to call off the mob. To describe the president's mindset, the committee presented new and previously seen material, including interviews with Trump's top aides and cabinet officials, including Mike Pompeo, William Barr and labor secretary Eugene Scalia, in which some describe the president acknowledging that he had lost. But rather than the end of Trump's efforts, it was only the beginning as the president summoned the crowd to Washington on January 6th. The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected former president Trump's plea to step into the legal fight over the FBI search of his Florida estate. The justices did not otherwise comment in turning away Trump's emergency appeal. Trump had pressed the court on an issue relating to classified documents seized in the search, authorized by a federal judge of Mar-a-Lago. The Trump team was asking the justices to overturn a lower court ruling and permit an independent arbiter of special master to review the roughly 100 documents with classified markings that were taken in the August 8th search of Mar-a-Lago. The move on Thursday appears to greatly reduce the potential impact of the special master process to the ongoing Justice Department criminal investigation into the classified documents. The Justice Department said in a Supreme Court filing that Trump's request had no merit. The FBI said it seized roughly 11,000 documents, including about a hundred with classification markings, stolen from The White House by Trump and kept hidden after losing the presidency in his personal residence. A divided jury spared Florida school shooter Nicholas Cruz, the death penalty on Thursday, for killing 17 people at a Parkland high school in 2018, sending him to prison for the rest of his life in a decision that left many families of the victims angered, baffled, and in tears. 24 year old Cruz pleaded guilty a year ago to murdering 14 students and three staff members and wounding 17 others at marjory Stoneman Douglas high school on the 14th of February 2018. The three month trial included graphic videos and photos from the massacre and its aftermath, heart wrenching testimony from victims family members and a tour of the still blood spattered building. The jury rejected the death penalty after deliberating for about 7 hours over two days. Cruz's lead public defender, Melissa McNeil, told the jury during her closing argument on Tuesday that life in prison would still be a horrible punishment and suggested that other prisoners might target him. But that wasn't enough for many family members who went before television cameras one by one to express their shock and anger at the jury's decision. Some called Cruz a monster, while others cried. Under Florida law, a death sentence requires a unanimous vote on at least one count. The 7 man 5 women jury unanimously agreed there were aggravating factors to warrant a possible death sentence, such as agreeing that the murders were especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel. But one or more jurors also found mitigating factors such as untreated childhood issues. In the end, the jury could not agree that the aggravating factors outweighed the mitigating ones, so crews will get life without parole.

"january 6" Discussed on Today, Explained
"Someone named Riley June Williams, who's a young woman from Pennsylvania who went into the speaker's office and allegedly stole a laptop from one of the desks there. Upstairs is speaker Nancy Pelosi's office. Inside a female voice, the FBI believes to be Williams, seems excited. I'm in Nancy. Where are you? On the desk is Pelosi's HP laptop. The same voice tells others to treat it careful. She, you know, was in there sort of directing traffic among the other people inside the building and there was some thought to suggest that you wanted to sell the laptop to Russians. Yikes. And it's sort of these very bizarre cases, I feel like every independent is run of the mill as they might seem has these weird twists in their stories and how they ended up there. And then prosecuting, quote unquote, regular Americans who went into the capitol and did crimes on January 6th. What's the DoJ's batting average? You said 800 charged about 200 have taken plea deals? Approximately, and I think that that's going to be the vast majority here. I think they're going to end up getting plea deals with 90% or more of these cases. In the cases that have gone to trial, which is just four right now. They have won two jury convictions on felony charges, neither of them have been sentenced yet, but that's two for two, essentially on the jury trials, and then in two bench trials where a judge makes the entire decision, they've actually not fared so well. But it's only because it's one judge presided over both of those trials, judge Trevor mcfadden, and he is not a fan of the government's theories and any of these cases and agreed to acquit one defendant entirely and gave a partial acquittal to a second one. Wow. On what grounds? In the total acquittal case, he said that the defendant plausibly argued that he believed the capitol police gave him permission to go inside the building. That in some of the video, there was a video of a cop sort of gesturing and what the defendant thought was waving him in. And the judge said, you know, I looked at the video, I could see that. What the judge cited is what Matthew Martin didn't do on January 6th. The judge says, according to the evidence shown at trial, Matthew Martin wasn't screaming or shouting, wasn't crowding people. He was here. He was amid the mob, but the judge says he was not an impactful member of the mob. That's going to be problematic if other judges adopt that theory, but he does seem to be on an island this judge right now. Might these prosecutions of sort of low level insurrectionists go on past, say, Republicans winning the next midterm election? So that's one of the significant things about the Justice Department investigation, which is that there is not the same time pressure that there is on Congress. They have at least through the end of the Biden administration, the first term, if not beyond. And what we do know is DoJ thinks there were about 2000 to 2500 people who went inside the capitol that day. And they've only charged about 800. They're really serious about getting all of them. There may be a third of the way there. So they've got a long way to go. How do they even do that? How do they find all of these people that just walked in and then walked out that day? It's actually pretty remarkable. I mean, DoJ has made no secret that they consider this the most important investigation, possibly an American history, certainly the most complicated, as the committee is well aware the department is engaged in one of the most sweeping investigations in its history in connection with the January 6th attack on the capitol. And because of that, they've unloaded every tool in their arsenal to find these people. So they're using facial recognition software. They're geolocating people's cell phones who were there. They say, oh, we have a reasonable probability that you are inside the capitol from this time to this time. And these are showing up in court filings, all of these things. They're doing physical surveillance. They're following a lot of this comes from tips from neighbors, Friends, family members, colleagues, say, oh, my friend posted this on social media that's showing that they were inside the capitol. And then the FBI will run with that tip, go to these people's homes, track them, see what they're up to, and then eventually make the arrest. Even for people who are sort of on the lower end of the crime spectrum here. Is the DoJ getting as much blowback as the January 6th committee. I mean, there's still obviously a lot of members of the GOP, including the former president who say this whole thing is a sham. To be clear, the select committee is engaged in an unconstitutional, political investigation, a sham investigation. Do people get that mad about these sort of low level insurrectionists slash criminals getting prosecuted over a year after the fact? I would say not really and that's the biggest reason for that is that the sort of elected class of Republicans are still all in agreement that anyone who committed crimes at the Cabot they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Well, anybody who committed crimes on January 6th should be prosecuted. If you entered the capitol and you committed acts of violence and you were there to hurt people, you should be prosecuted. And they are being prosecuted. And so you're not hearing these voices in Congress, even from some Trump allies in Congress saying what DoJ is doing to these rioters is inappropriate. You hearing bits of that. There's some question about political prosecutions that we hear from Republicans a lot. Are they targeting these people, not for their actions, but because of their political beliefs. But the January 6th commission is not the place to do this. That's what prosecutors are supposed to do. This commission is a partisan scam. That they're going after the purpose of that commission is to try to embarrass and smear and harass as many. That's what you believe. Get their hands on. To Republican colleagues are doing. Liz Cheney. Commission is doing. That's a very narrow slice of the Republicans in Congress, making that argument, a bigger slice of Trump world than Trump himself who is saying that, but it's not uniform across the Republican spectrum at the moment. And so at least as long as DoJ stays focused on the rioters, I don't think we're hearing that argument quite as forcefully. It's really interesting. So there isn't as much opposition to prosecuting like Gary the dental hygienist who was at the insurrection, but there is still this resistance to figure out why exactly this happened. Yes, and we've heard this in court come out quite a few times some judges who have been prosecuted. You sentencing these rioters or saying things like, you know, it's a little bit incongruous for us to be, you know, throwing the book at, you know, someone who just strolled into the capitol because Donald Trump told them to do it. And not going after the people who told them to do it. And so you hear that this discomfort within the legal system about why are we punishing the foot soldiers when the generals are out there, you know, Scot free, and now we do see evidence that DoJ has moved up the chain a little bit in that direction. And so that's when I think we're going to see more of that resistance and that all out pushback from Republicans, Trump world, that kind of thing. And what is that? That's just politics, I guess, huh?.

"The attack like a lot of his colleagues. He says it will be interesting to reveal all the participants who were involved. And that's always stuck out to me because most Republicans are not speaking like that. And we do know McConnell after January 6th, you know, he did vote to acquit Trump during the impeachment trial, but he did have really harsh words for the former president, blamed everything on him and said he could be held civilly and even criminally responsible for what happened. So he's not necessarily in the former president's camp on this one. And we assume Pelosi will cooperate. She has said as much. He said, if they want to call me and they need to call me, I'm in. And what's most important about Pelosi is Republicans are teeing up this plan to counter the January 6th investigation with their own probe that essentially they've already said is going to blame Nancy Pelosi for the entirety of what went wrong on January 6th. The American people deserve to know the truth, that Nancy Pelosi bears responsibility as Speaker of the House for the tragedy that occurred on January 6th. If she testifies to the current committee, it's a chance to sort of pre butt that narrative that Trump himself and members of Congress are trying to push. For. And then penultimate on your list here is just sort of hodgepodge of members of the GOP. Yes, Republican members of Congress who three of them have been called by the committee, but basically said, screw you, we're not coming in. And the committee has sort of left to grapple with what do we do with those three, and then additional Republican lawmakers who we know played key roles, strategizing with Donald Trump to overturn the election, may have called him on the day of the 6th. There were some phone calls being him and say, congressman Jim Jordan, you know, some senators who were on the phone with him. And the question is, how hard will the committee go after its own colleagues? Knowing they have important evidence, but also knowing that the tables may be turned on them in a Republican controlled Congress in a year. Last on your list. 5. Is what to do with everything they found, whether to make it public, whether to keep it private. Yes, and this, to me, it's a very process focused question, but it's really important because the committee, as far as we know, has justice enormous mountain of evidence, they've interviewed 800 plus people. They've got tens of thousands of documents, you know, many, many, many orders of magnitude greater than most congressional investigations obtain. And the question is, will we see all of that at the end of the day? Well, they decide, you know what? We're just going to throw it all out there on a website and let people do with it what they will. They'll have their own report, which will be nice, neatly and neatly packaged, but the thousands of pages of transcripts of these interviews might have a lot more value, so both to the public, which could then comb through them, but also to the Justice Department, which is in running its own investigation and starting to creep into Trump world a bit in their investigation. They might find a lot of value in seeing these tens of thousands of pages that the committee can't just hand over to a prosecutor they could by virtue of putting it on the website. Do we have any sense what the Justice Department might do? No, they seem to be in sort of the early phases of pursuing people in Trump's orbit. That's a big development that's happened in the last few days and weeks. But that's a sign that they are ramping up. And so it could take months, it could take even years to sort of come to fruition. But the committees and information might be very valuable.

"Hey y'all. This is Sam's aunt daddy. This week, the insurrection at the capitol. One year later, all right, let's start the show. Hey y'all, you're listening to it's been a minute from NPR. I'm Sam Sanders. In this episode, we're going to talk about January 6th, 2021. My panelist on today's show, they can recall that day vividly. We would get flashes of a few images from the Senate floor where people had the mob had taken over. That is NPR investigative correspondent Tom dreisbach. People breaking into Windows, looking for any way in. And that's Washington Post national security reporter, Hannah a lamb. Hannah is a former NPR reporter, and she was at the capitol that day for NPR. People threatening to haul out and string up lawmakers. Tom and Hannah have been covering the insurrection and its aftermath for the last year. And one big thing has stood out for both of them. It was just so much more violent than we were able to see from our little corners of observation that day. For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election, he tried to prevent a peaceful transfer of power. As a violent mob breached the capitol. This week in a speech, President Biden called out former president Trump. For his role in what happened. But Trump even now is downplaying the attack. And supporting the insurrectionist. And all across the country, there is still no real nationwide consensus over what actually happened that day. Despite all of the reporting around the insurrection and all of the new information that's come to light since. So this episode, Hannah, Tom and I, we're going to talk about why this violent attack on the U.S. capitol is still so polarizing. And what that day's violence and the lack of consensus means for our politics going forward. You know, Tom you and the investigations team have been tracking the legal fallout for those involved in the insurrection. A year later, writ large, what has happened to them? How many have been charged? How many have gone to jail? Yeah, so the FBI calls this their biggest investigation in the history of the bureau. It involves almost every FBI field office in the entire country because that's where people came from who went to the riot. They came from virtually every state in the country. And so far they've charged a little over 700 people. The charges I kind of organized into three general buckets. There's people on the low end who are accused of basically going inside the capitol, breaching the building, but not actually committing violence or breaking windows, doing any property destruction. That's on the lowest end. And then there's a quarter of all the charges so far are people who are accused of attacking police officers, whether with weapons or with their hands, makeshift weapons, that kind of thing. And then there's this group of people who are accused of conspiracy, planning in the weeks, months ahead of January 6th to bring this level of chaos and destruction to the capitol that they thought about bringing weapons that they in the allegations against the oath keepers, for example, this far right militia group. They're accused of planning a quick reaction force that would be able to come to the capitol at a moment's notice with heavy weapons and attack. They've pleaded not guilty so that hasn't been tested in court yet, but those are the kind of main groups of charges. We've started to get some guilty pleas in those cases, more than a 170 people have pleaded guilty so far less than half of those have been sentenced yet. And I should note that those are the cases that are mostly on the lower end. The most high profile cases, the most serious charges have largely not finished their way through the legal process yet. Yeah. You know, I want to talk to you both about what has changed in the last year. In terms of how law enforcement prepares for these kind of events or the potential of things like an insurrection, what I found most interesting from your report in Hannah was that in the run up to January 6th. Federal officials already knew something was going on. But some were actually afraid to have too strong of a show of force because of some things that Donald Trump had done while he was in office. They were reluctant to use force again after he had months before use the military to quash racial justice protests outside of The White House. Can you talk about what law enforcement did or didn't do that day and why? And how, if at all, any of that has changed in the last year? I think that point is actually one of the big unanswered questions or that we're still answering is for all of the open planning that went into this event. I remember talking on empire that morning saying this feels less like a protest and more like a last stand by a Trump supporters because that had been the open rhetoric of groups that were going to the capitol people who were going to be there. This planning was out in the open. And yet the capital was left to soft target. And I don't know that we've fully answered why there's been theories that such as the failure of imagination, these were not this is not a population that we've traditionally thought of as a domestic terrorist threat. Then you have people saying, well, you know, this was an administration that was known and well documented that they didn't like you to bring up threats from the right and the far right. And there have been whistleblowers from Homeland Security and other agencies saying they were discouraged from shedding light on that kind of threat from your naming it even in some cases. And then we're also still watching the responses to it. Like you said, what's changed in the year? Certainly, these groups have been more under the microscope. I mean, I talk to several guys who are in militia groups, self styled militia groups. They, every week, have a story about, oh, this new guy showed up. I think he's a fed, or, you know, we've been de platformed, and we don't even have a way of communicating. And so, I mean, you do see that there is an impact, but at the same time, they're just adapting.

"Cut number two. The Department of Justice will continue to do all it can to protect voting rights with the enforcement powers we have. It is essential that Congress act to give the department the powers we need to ensure that every eligible voter can cast a vote that counts. Right there, that's the AG being political. Every eligible voter can vote a cast about the counts. It's just nonsense. I can't believe the attorney general in the United States use the anniversary of one 6 to go out there and push it partisan agenda. But it was a partisan speech. The bottom line of this beach, please stop yelling at me. We're finding everything we can. There's just no there there. There's no big conspiracy. And he made some vague reference. We'll follow the investigation wherever it leads however Hyatt goes. Yeah, right. It's not going anywhere. Trump was not organizing an insurrection. People say, didn't you see what Peter Navarro said? Peter Navarro said they had a war room at the Willard trying to persuade Mike Pence not to count. That's not an insurrection. It's an interpretation of the Electoral College act, and it was a wrong interpretation. It screwball. And I believe eastman's second memo said that my friend John eastman wrote two memos, one of which has been leaked by the January 6th committee, which isn't really a committee. It's a rough committee. The saddest part about this is that when Nancy Pelosi hijacked due process of the minority and she could have gotten away with a pointing Liz Cheney, could Liz Cheney has the respect of a lot of Americans. But when she wouldn't let Kevin McCarthy name Jim banks the chair put Jim Jordan on she destroyed the credibility of the committee and nobody cares what the committee does, except those people who have already hung Donald Trump in their mind for treason. So it's just a nonsense committee. I'll come back with more news. Stay tuned. When we were everyone we were more than just a slice of American welcome back America to run down continues on this Thursday edition of the Hugh Hewitt show. The Wall Street Journal this morning has an editorial on the Electoral College act and the need to rewrite it. Now that's an 1886 statute. The electoral count act. And it does need to be rewritten. There's really no ambiguity in it. But some people have tried to leave her in ambiguity and yesterday leader McConnell indicated in a willingness to entertain that. And I hope they follow through with it, go and read that editorial. Horrible tragedy in Philly last night, or yesterday. Fire in a Philadelphia row house killed 13 people, including 7 children. Prayers are with those family. The airlines canceled more than a thousand flights for the 11th straight day. The airlines are running into COVID shortages work shortages, a lot of people using their leave in their sick time because they don't want to go into COVID airports. The airplanes are actually very safe to fly around in. Automakers supercharge their moving to electric vehicles according to The Wall Street Journal. The Chevy Silverado is going to come out in an electric version and Japan, Sony grip plans to jump in the electric vehicle Frey as well.

"All right, I keep all my books handy. I have to quote myself. And President Biden won the election in November. And I knew it that night and confirmed it the next morning because I know that in order to turn over a state election, you have to be within a thousand votes at the close of a balloting. It was never even close. There's no evidence of widespread fraud. There was. And I'm a little frustrated, but Ashley Parker, my colleague at The Washington Post this morning for our story, I spoke to her for half an hour about why I asked candidates in your opinion did President Biden win a constitutional majority on election day? And if so, how strong is your opinion? My opinion is very strong that yes indeed he did. But candidates stumble on that. They don't know what to say. They don't want to offend the hardcore president Trump supporters who think massive. Massive pride did not occur. Did not happen. And however, election abuse did happen. I go back to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court changing the rules left and right. I go back to all sorts of different things all over the country. That upset people. And I believe in making it easy to vote and hard to cheat. And I love the election laws that are being passed in Georgia and other states. And there's nonsense narrative from MSNBC in the Democrats and every other CNN that there is a threat to your voting rights. It's all absurd. It's stupid. So we look back at January 6 compared to what is happening to Kazakhstan right now where there is an insurrection, by the way, at just insurrection. And the security forces are mowing down people. It is important for us to remember that America remains the last best hope of the world and has been since the Declaration of Independence. Lots more ahead today.

You have to do a gold or physical silver physical gold physical silver physical platinum IRA where you get the bars or the maple leaf for the eagles and you have to have a third party do it for you. It's all explained in the birch golden free information kit. And I recommend between 5 and 10% impressions metals of your retirement income because that's your hedge against hyperinflation. The remote possibility, but right now we're inflation. And gold is at 1811 this morning. And dropped a little bit yesterday in the sell off and there was a panic yesterday on the markets. A big panic, the Dow dropped 392 points. The NASDAQ went down 522 points. Even my vaunted Amazon dropped $63, it's down at 3287 boys out of buying opportunity. But I'll tell you this, I will tell you that the interest rate announcement by the fed matters to the gold people out there is why you want to go to Hugo gold dot com or text my name 98 98 98.

Well, of course they're going to. Their economists, they know what happens at tax on the poorest people. It's a nightmare for the economy. Shortages develop, we already have supply chain disruption and the Biden inflation is upon us. And they want to spend more money. Luckily, Joe Manchin is standing in their way.

"I can't help but see that. You had a situation where the National Guard was readily deployed. You guys were put into place during protests where quite frankly it was about black people and police killing black. Those were the concerns, and then you had this situation on January 6th where it was almost 100% white people. And there was a hesitancy to call you all. Did you make that connection? Have you thought about that connection? Well, I'm African American. I'm a black person. George Floyd could have been my brother. My son, my uncle. My father, George Floyd. Could be me. You know, so it wasn't lost on me. Yeah. And not just George Floyd. Sandra bland and so many others. It's not lost on me. So it's inescapable to see the difference in the response. In the summer, and the response on January 6th. Yeah. And that was that also in your mind on January 6th. You can not not be able to be on your mind. It could not be on my mind. And I'll tell you something, ma'am. It was undermined of everybody. Not just black. Airmen and black soldiers. It was on every guardsman. The difference was undeniable. What do you think that people don't understand about January 6? Well, I think they understand. Yeah. So I think it's just willful, blindness. It's willful, they're deceiving themselves. Anybody who says that there was not a riot here. Anybody who could watch the video of what occurred here and walk away from that saying that it was not what it was. Then the self deceived. Yeah. I mean, I was here. They're either being deceived or they're deceiving themselves, or maybe both. Yeah. I guess I'm not convinced that it's so innocent as just denial. I think it's lying. And I don't disagree with you. But denial, sometimes there's a reflex. You know, it's something to this can't be happening. I can't be here. This couldn't have occurred. That type of denial. Which I cause self deception. You're somebody who's very methodical, you believe in the chain of command, you believe in these rules, and that was a day when the rules weren't working. Well, the rules work because as bad as I wanted to show up here with every available guardsman, I didn't. And I was like, really wanted to come. I came very close to just doing something I had, which would just be so outrageous to me. And that was to come anyway. And I had my army lawyer. My command sergeant major and others said sir, there's no way you can just tell us to go. Now, we will go if you tell us. But you just can't do that. Yeah. So, so, yeah, so the rules do work. As bad as I wanted to come, I didn't. I guess the rule I'm thinking of is you need to be backed up. It shouldn't have taken three hours for this person to call this person to get a sheet of paper that said that you can go I feel like that there was definitely a let down there. Yeah. So I felt let down. But more than that, I feel like the United States Capitol police, the Metropolitan Police, and everybody that was out here felt that now. It.

"When it's finally time for interviews, some Capitol Hill guards let us inside the building. And we go through the metal detectors, we make a sharp right, went down this hallway, past paintings of old dead white men, and inter walker's office. His office is spacious and beautiful. It has his high dome ceiling and beautiful chandelier, and underneath is a huge desk and then in front of that is this long wooden table. Okay. We're gonna set up here. All right, thank you so much. And then the door behind the desk opens. Hi, nice to meet you. Oh, it's nice to meet you. I'm sorry. I appreciate your patience. Walker is tall. He's got gray hair, and he's wearing a suit. One of those you saw in the news is yesterday was a long, long day. And the day before we met him, the house had this marathon session where the Republican minority leader, filibustered President Biden's big infrastructure Bill for almost 9 hours. Walker got home sometime around 4 a.m.. But no, this is not photos though. I'm exhausted. My eyes are nagging. Okay. I was wondering if we can start with just like you introducing yourself. So I'm William J walker. I'm the sergeant at arms, the United States House of representative. I'm the 38th person to have this position. Can you tell me kind of what block you grew up on and if you can paint the picture of what it was like when you were a kid? Yeah. I'll just say the south side of Chicago. So I still have family in Chicago. And as you can hopefully can imagine as a DEA special agent arrested a lot of people. He spent most of his career working for the drug enforcement administration. Danger, excitement and adventure. I put a lot of people in prison. Not your prison. So some of them are probably getting out right about now, so I'm kind of invasive about exactly where I lived and my family. Walker doesn't share much about his personal life, but he's very public about his faith in God. And his love for a TV show called the untouchables. You're too young to remember the untouchables, but these were the exploits of federal prohibition agents. Relentlessly driving on to face new dangers from the neverending cavalcade of criminals who follow in the blood stained footsteps of those who defy the law. And they were men of character and unimpeachable integrity. They were fearless. They were fearless. And they were needed. This is a raid. What in what ways was being an actual agent matched up with your vision from that TV show? Almost completely. Almost completely. So this might sound weird, but you can still catch reruns of the untouchables and I've binge watch it. And I get the same adrenaline rush that I received when I would affect an arrest. Conduct a search warrant. Yeah, it was just. It was thrilling. And you knew you were doing something meaningful that you made America quite frankly the world a safer place. Walker started working for the DEA in the early 80s. No, only African American in my class when I became an agent. Wow. Really? I got the photo. Only African American in my class. Devastated when I got there. Where is everybody? How come to no blacks here? And every day I think I was gonna make it. Well, every day they thought I wasn't gonna make it, but I knew I was. Yeah. But it was hard. It was hard. Deliberately. This was a tough job to get if you were black. In spite of all this, walker ended up staying there for 31 years. The fastest 31 years of my life. Yeah. 25 when I became an agent 57 when I had to turn the toys in. But walker didn't stop working. Throughout his career, he also served in the National Guard, and in 2018, he was appointed head of the D.C. National Guard. And so, on January 6th, 2021, as protesters from the stop the steel rally were heading over to the capitol, walker was preparing his soldiers for the worst case scenario. When you saw the number of people, all massing at the capitol. You know, and it became readily apparent that the crowd size was just huge. It was massive and then if it didn't stay peaceful, it was beyond the capability beyond the capacity of the United States Capitol police to deal with it if the crowd became unruly. And so I already had riot control gear in the vehicles just in case. My command sergeant major had brought the buses inside the armory and had the soldiers with their gear, ready to go. So you think about how prepared we were on January 6th because we had the summer to prepare. And during the summer was when they were like a lot of protests about police and that sort of stuff. We had the riot equipment. The shields, the batons. The protective gear. Just in case. Around 1 p.m., rioters broke through the barricades. They knocked down police officers, climbed the steps of the capitol and started banging on the doors and windows. And while all of this was happening, walker was just a few miles away at the D.C. armory. Watching it all unfold on TV. I'm thinking the phone's gonna ring. Yeah. And somebody's gonna call and ask for the National Guard to respond. Right. So I'm just waiting. And at one 49, the phone did ring, and it was from the chief of the United States Capitol police. And he told me he needed every available guardsman. He told me where he needed us to be. As quick as we could get there. If we didn't get there immediately, he was in fear that.
