"I will not give all the details away to listener. But things you wouldn't expect like the word avocado or kickstarter really central in your in your tormentors. Twisted twisted mindset in ways. that are just. I don't know it would drive me insane. You're stronger than i am. Because i would live in those dark rabbit holes. Look i think you know. The pool is very strong to go to those places but when you realize that That's not getting anywhere that you're better off trying to maintain a sense of equilibrium. One way to do that is if you can laugh at ship. Yeah yeah And so while you're in in present there's this government effort to try to negotiate your release At the same time there are ongoing negotiations over. You know what will eventually become the jcp away or the iran nuclear agreement. What's amazing in this podcast. Is you interviewed all these people about the process of negotiating release negotiating the jcp away and talk to them. During the trump administration when they were out of government when they were willing to let their hair down in speak freely and not be like the talking point robots that we all turned into when we go back in and now a bunch of them. John kerry john finer. The deputy national security adviser are back in government. Like what are what are people going to hear from those individuals that might surprise them. Look i mean. I think it we. We always think of people in government has superhuman or sub-human but definitely not you but I think when when when you hear these people you're gonna realize that they are in so many ways dealing with issues in the same ways that anybody else They're just people tasked with a job. A huge job And i think that that the the sort of impossible challenge of weighing Massive geopolitical issues against the concerns of a single family is something the government has to deal with all the time They're not necessarily always really graceful about it publicly or privately. But i think we really see into that here and for me. I've had the opportunity over the last five years to get to know a lot of of these people And also people in the trump administration specifically around the the issue of of hostage taking hostage recovery stis level of trust intimacy that i've been able to to to build up what these folks But as you say you know they can't really let their hair down right now. They have a lot of other things to deal with. I'm of the eight or nine high level officials That we we interviewed for the show Ben would probably be only one. That would be willing to talk to me right now. Right for this. And i know that because i continue to report on hostage cases And i can't get any of these folks on record at this point so you know that's no knock on them that's kind of the the the the nature Of how things work here in washington. But i would say there's a level of intimacy to this show that you almost never get when you put somebody in government alongside with somebody who who who was affected by the policies that they're tasked with implementing. Yeah i mean sometimes you get town halls with presidential candidates where they're talking directly to someone who's been impacted by war or taxes or you know healthcare policy. Whatever it's so rare to hear you. Who was taken by the iranians talking to ben rhodes or john kerry or brett mcgurk about the decisions. They literally made involving you your released from prison i mean. I don't know that i've ever heard that anywhere else. I don't think i have a. I'm sure that there are fictionalized tales. like you know on film or in in in literature but to me that's the thing that jumps out to my year Because look i was incredibly lucky. Not everybody has the kind of advocates. That that i did and that starts with a family in your employer and you know between my my big brother and the washington post They were able to get themselves into the west wing multiple times and you know As much as they became a thorn in the side of some of these people is also kind of a respect level. that was That was built up over time. And i think that that really comes through in the show. It's five years. After the fact that. I'm talking to these people and you know folks like wendy sherman and ben And john finer have very distinct memories of dealing with my brother. That's pretty cool. As far as i'm concerned all government dorks in the show. Your wife yet. Years is interviewed a lot in his hilarious. Your mom your brother. also anthony. Bourdain has a big Can you tell people how anthony bourdain became part of the story because you know for me listening trailer and hearing his voice again. Someone who. I followed and listened to and revered in some ways it was it was jarring and also so wonderful to like here. The guy's voice again so when when when we were arrested in two thousand fourteen six weeks earlier we had been asked to appear on parts unknown when he was in tehran. We spend an afternoon with them and it was. It was really lovely experience all the way around and then when we were were arrested. Invariably someone's gonna start thinking Must add something to do with you. Know with being on that show right. There's a lot of people thought it had something to do with them. It didn't have a with any anybody. But but we're dane with somebody who really from the gecko was full-throated in his advocacy for for our release. And that never stopped. It kept going in a couple of weeks after we got out. We had the opportunity to to meet up with him in new york. We had a a meal and some beers and had talked a lot in dangerous yongin. I incredible life advice and from that moment until Until he died he he was somebody who was very much in our corner. Very supportive of us in ultimately when i proposed a memoir Wrote up the proposal. We took it to publishers We you know we had sort of one of these. Many bidding wars where half a dozen different publishers wanted to publish the book he reached out to me and said hey jason you know whether you choose me or not. Just give it some consideration at like two to publish your book on com on my imprint. It's such an important story to me. And i want you to tell it how you wanna tell it by the way you know. He ended up a bumping up. See the the fee that he was willing to pay the book advance above and beyond any other publisher just to see her deal. So just like you know when when we made the decision yagi really new kind of looked me in the is like. Were you ever even considering doing this with anybody else. In the answer was no right. I mean this guy a believed in us and we believe in him. So that's how that happened and as part of Reporting out my story for the book. I spend an afternoon with His condo in in manhattan We had some beers in turn on the microphone. And and just kind of record a conversation than i think you know magically it relieved fits into the story that we're telling here yeah i mean it's weird to miss someone i've never met but i do You know you mentioned in the course of your work in the washington. Post you report on a lot of these. These hostage takings. Unfortunately hostage-taking is far too common in foreign policy and foreign affairs terrorist. Groups take hostages. Iran is taken countless hostages. We think some listeners of the show might say to me. Hey tommy You could argue that. Some gitmo detainees. Were were our hostages and they would have some point There's also troubling rise in journalists being held hostage one example is a man named any fencer. Who's in american journalist. Who's currently being held in. Myanmar has been imprisoned wrongly. Since may what do you think the best way me based on all your reporting for the us government to deal with these cases. What did the obama administration get wrong in your case that the biden folks hopefully can fix and get right so i think the first thing that administrations often get wrong is not calling it but it is when we call something arbitrary detention or a wrongful detention. I understand the the motivation for doing that. It is essentially to say that. We acknowledged hovering of this other country in the independence of their judiciary.

"So excited to welcome back to the pod. Jason resigned jason. So good siegen. Tommy is great to be here. You know talking to you from my Basement bunker might my little eleven month. Old is screaming somewhere upstairs and and where we are you know again. After after after longtime a lot has changed a lot feels the same I'm in place So we're here to talk about your incredible new podcast. Five hundred forty four days It is hosted by you. It is written by you and produced by gimblett crooked media a twenty four so Some decent Oppression companies there. It's the story of the five hundred forty four days you spent in the notorious hellish evan prison in iran after they wrongly accused of being an american spy. You're white eddie. Was also taken prisoner stories about your attention. The nasa effort by the government. Your family your colleagues at the washington. Post to get you out. Oh and by the way. Brock obama was cutting a nuclear deal with iran at the same time so not at all complicated. Not a lot of moving pieces there So just for listeners. Who might not be familiar with your story. Can we start with the basics of why the iranians arrested you in the first place. Yeah so i. I was the tehran bureau chief for the washington post in the summer of two thousand fourteen. I've been living in tehran. Since two thousand nine working as a as a reporter for international media freelancing really for for several years until i was hired by the post in two thousand twelve and at that time when i was hired. I really thought that this relationship with one of the the maiden newspapers of the world the paper of record of the us capital thought that gave me some cover made some active cover an as the nuclear negotiations started heating up in two thousand thirteen. Two thousand fourteen one thing that nobody really factored in was that there were actors within the iranian regime. That did not wanna see Any kind of between iran in the western iran in the us specifically. So when i was taken in july of two thousand fourteen. It was right at the height of those negotiations The timeframe for coming to a deal. The deadline had been extended by several months. And i think anybody who was following closely believed that The deal was kind of a fatal complete. I mean it was going to happen one way or the other and as you know From being here in washington at that time there were a lot of opponents in us against diplomacy with iran in that deal in particular inside iran. They were opponents. As well and the main opponent was the revolutionary guard in agents of their intelligence wing Rated my home And abducted my wife and i Very subtly without any kind of warning and took us to evan prison where we really had no idea what we were being accused of them. And they said okay. You're a spy They put us in interrogation rooms for weeks on end. And during that time they asked us all Manner of questions which showed very clearly. They had absolutely no evidence that we were doing anything wrong. Know just border working with with state permission in that country Who was was kind of rounded up as as Yeah i mean you're very clear when you talk about the experience. I mean being put in solitary confinement for that long being interrogated on those under those conditions. It is torture but what is surprising about this show in this podcast. Like just you generally is how funny. The show is You your wife your mom your brother you are all able to somehow look back and laugh at experience you guys make fun of your tormentors. Is that something you figure out how to do after the fact or did you keep your sense of humor in prison. That's me right. I mean you know. That's how i've walked through life so far I've tried to look at the lighter side of every situation. I've ever been subjected to you. My my dad who Who died Ten years ago he used to say i. If you worry you're gonna die and if you don't worry you're gonna die. So don't worry and i've tried to kind of incorporate that mantra into as many moments in my life as i could. Obviously this was a very extreme one right And i had no way of knowing if when i would get out but i had to assume that i was going to survive this thing somehow and You you get to a certain point after several days when you realize okay. I'm going to be a friend to myself or am. I going to be my enemy because i'm in salt if i'm during anybody else around right so you look for things to laugh at you know you look for a memories you plan for the future conversations you had and you can very easily go down very dangerous mental rabbit holes if you let yourself I chose not to let myself and part of that. A big part of that was finding things to laugh at and as my my world in prison opened up a little bit. More interactions with my interrogator and getting to know my guards And then after time having a cellmate I just found endless things to to poke fun at because ultimately this was really the most absurd thing that had ever happened to me. And i really wanted to pull out that absurdity in retailing. This story yeah. He's a traumatic. Do i still have you know. Emotional and psychological scars. Fuck yes am. I gonna let that stop me from laughing at it a better. Not 'cause then. I'm really screwed. I mean there's some of the details incredible..

"Who was like press secretary for like a year or two or right. I mean be as saying. You're the press secretary without briefing is like saying you're a teacher. You've never stepped foot in the classroom to what you do Anyway so the book is an anecdote about foreign policy that thought again with so the first is about russia and trump putin so quote with all the talk of sanctions against russia for interfering in the two thousand sixteen election for various human rights abuses. Trump told putin okay. I'm going to act a little tougher with you for a few minutes. But it's for the cameras and after they leave we'll talk you understand. Grisham writes recalling meeting between the two leaders during the group of twenty summit in osaka in twenty nineteen so basically trump saying. Hey man i'm that's tough. It's just for the press but wait like my reaction to that was like i don't recall him sounding tough like that's a good point. That's if if if the delta was like this is me being really tough and then what happens in closed doors as me cozying up to. You're like man. He must have been closing up in private. Because i don't really remember a tough message at the asaka g. twenty you know. Ironically point trump team who are pushing back hard on this book. Because you're right that makes no sense. Here's the second russia anecdote so quote as the meeting began. Fiona hill leaned over and asked me. If i'd noticed putin's translator who's a very attractive brunette woman with long hair a pretty face and a wonderful figure grisham writes. She proceeded to tell me that she suspected the woman had been selected by putin specifically to distract our president. Now that checks out. That one hundred percent checks out. And i will say that. I was in a bunch of meetings with putin and nobody who fit that description. Let's just say was Translating young with like stern russian men some way clear x. k. cagey. Yeah yes exactly Grisham says that a trip to north korea inspired mr trump to ask her to research ways the press could be permanently evicted from the james as breeding briefing room. That's kind of funny. Yeah this is kind of funny. I mean surprising in the slightest dotted all. This is my favorite ben Miss grisham reserve special. Ir for jared kushner whom she calls. Rasputin in a slim fitting suit. That's a very i mean. Look i'm just gonna. I'll give this one entirely over to to miss grisham. That's a very apt description of jared. Does that the slim-fitting suit somehow contributed to the rasputin. 'cause he was like that. You know wealthy son of a real estate developer guy who like thinks he's cool 'cause he gets a slim cut suit or something you know like. Give me a break. Jared with that. I mean like you're not like you. You are what you are. Which is someone who's like basically had a checkbook behind your life and now you're like utilizing your position of power and influence to service. Your your own personal ends like good description that so i don't know a ton about rasputin. I guess he was of like a russian mystic and he sort of advised czars but Apparently his scandal wikipedia so depressed. I i'm actually done some deep dives on recipes. So like did he help. Discredit the czarist government. And when he was died led to the romanoff. Yes sir basically he like can use this kind of mystic guy. Conman drifter right so he was drifter was all bound real estate. We're not real resolve that like advancing the new york observer exactly And he liked could comfort the the czar arenas child was like a hemophiliac comfort him and and that may gave his influence is principally with the tzars wife And this was the source of building resentment around the the royal family and and petersburg and and yet like they killed the skies kind of like one of the early acts of what became the russian. But but what he has in common with jarrett is did not wear slimfast suits understand but he was entirely like griffin power behind the throne of guy. You know. I love it all right okay. So maybe maybe that was a point gresham and shot up by the way to Fellow podcast mike. Dunkin's revolutions podcasts. Which is why recently immersed in recipes. I'll check that out also great Show who called the great which is about you know what that's right. That's a good show all those funniest one of like shows you on your like. Oh i'm gonna watch this period drama and like there's just orgies punchy real there's real fast is like a lot not expect. I didn't want to watch with my parents. I watched the crown of my parents.

"I still think on balance like people that are rockets qatar. To be you know before Gaza wars and and and you know we have a capacity to help them shoot rockets down. That would kill civilians like that. That seems like the better use of our military i. I'm pro iron dome Couple more things alternativefacts going along so this story about burma are are caught. My ben so a federal judge ordered facebook to release records of facebook accounts connected to anti ryan j violence in in burma. Facebook fought the release saying it violated privacy law. The judge basically laughed at them and that argument. Like oh you guys in privacy got enough so the rangers are a muslim minority group in burma back in two thousand seventeen more than seven hundred. Thirty thousand of them were driven out of mar into bangladesh. There were widespread reports of war crimes and atrocities against their injured by the military. There's an effort underway to prosecute myanmar at the international court of at the hague under the nineteen forty eight convention on genocide. Un human rights. Investigators say facebook played a key role in spreading hate speech that cemented the violence against More broadly you know the military coup in i keep saying them interchangeably burma. Yeah me our our More broadly this military coup is ongoing. You know the crackdown against Regular people is ongoing after. I think eight months the u. n. High commissioner for human rights estimates. That eleven hundred protesters have been killed but the united nations just can't do anything about it. They're paralyzed because russia. And china sell the burmese military bunch of weapons and they block any meaningful action security council so basically wanted to bring the story up. We haven't talked about in a while Vent about facebook for a minute because you know. They are also being accused of allowing incitement on their platform in ethiopia. Yeah wall blocking release of evidence about that. Same kind of deadly rhetoric and behavior in burma. And it's infuriating. So if you wanna dip in the back catalogue The episode four of missing america My pockets of you guys is all about disinformation and hate campaigns in and burma And it was central. I mean basically like there was a massive effort to gin up. Hate of the ranger to kind of conspiracy theories there's fake news about ranjha. Men raping buddhists women things that kind of whip the population of this frenzy. At the same time there's ethnic cleansing happened and facebook. Did nothing really very little to curb this. And when i travelled to myanmar to work on a story. I was writing for the atlantic like that. Facebook had no employees in the country barely. Yeah they had to people who are in in. I think singapore that came like once or twice a year mainly to make sure that the government let facebook be. They're like they're just didn't seem to care. You know that this is happening And to me like the long portend here is like is liability that like essentially. This is an important step towards trying to set a precedent that facebook has some responsibility. And and i think with government regulation. It should be legal responsibility for things like whether or not like an ethnic cleansing campaign is being orchestrated on platform. And i think that you know. The times did a good investigation. That identified that the burmese military was behind A lot of this hate campaign so so yeah it's a positive step forward released. The documents Another update because i'm basically had questions about this subject for you so The washington post reported that the cia recalled its vienna station chief because of inattention cases of so-called havana syndrome syndrome is this mysterious. Illness seems to manifest as headaches nausea like traumatic brain injury in his reportedly afflicted Around two hundred. Us intelligence officers diplomats or other serving abroad. Congress now authorized money for treatment Tony blinken the secretary of state reportedly net with a bunch of department officials who have been suffering from the disease Their reports staffer traveled with. Ci director bill burns a trip to india. Came down with symptoms. That was weird David cohen the cia is deputy director. Said the agency's getting closer to figuring out what's happening but not close enough yet to make a judgment or a public judgement so scarce stuff it is a and it's important checking in because this keeps popping up and i like look they need to You know what. I hope they're doing is like that. There's a clear someone is in charge of this because it kind of felt like definitely the trump years and in the beginning of biden khazar. Just getting their offices like didn't feel like someone own vis in a clear way in the us government like And i think it does. As i've said the we need some answers here like this is a weird thing that just going to be a part of the backdrop. Yeah yeah frequent workout and tell us what you know. And don't know you know i. 'cause i the workforce of these places worried i mean. I talked to diplomats. I talked intelligence. People like people are worried and they they they want some some additional information or some degree of assurance. Yeah they wanna feel listen to and yeah treated like they're you know. These are just symptoms manifesting of stress. I mean look these. Those kinds of things have happened before but so many people are suffering from this syndrome. Now that its own talk you know. Some cases are probably are that you know someone had something else. They had food poisoning but clearly some of these cases are because of something that is being done to just the scale of this suggests that yeah another issue we talk about a couple of times. Is this growing spyware spy software for profit industry so the industry leader is a company called the group good for them. Industry leader Grit yelp reviews. It was started by a bunch of former israeli intelligence people. They claim the softwares used attract bad. Guys that is bullshit. The pegasus spy software that they created keep showing up on devices used by journalists and human rights activists. The story that we wanted to highlight is a woman named ala. Al seek This is according to a great report in the guardian so so she was the executive director of aol. It's a nonprofit. Advocating for human rights in the us in the middle east tragically died in a car accident. June but a recent examination of her phone found that she had been hacked by the government. A government client of the nfl group back in twenty fifteen. So then i know you flag the story you know. Maybe this will come up. And jake sullivan's trip to the is i would hope out. I mean constantly. I because if you if you read the story to like what it speaks to is that she felt like shoes beings prevail and she was and kind of you know paranoid with good reason and some of her friends suggested that that might have contributed her due to what happened to her And look it's a reminder that like the the the the yelp reviews you know would be like five stars via or bonn. Muhammed bin salman nbc. You know ziad like the. Ua puts on a huge. You know show to the west. About how much more kind of modern and and in some ways liberal they are And you know if you travel through abu dhabi that's what you experience but this is a reminder that there's a very dark autocratic undercurrent even harassing female human rights activists outside the country london and and i think any analysis of stuff like pegasus. And so there's a lot of traffic runs through saudi uae. And so to me the stores where flagging both to honor the courage of of activists from those places but also to kind of be the reminder that like there's a nexus here of you know That runs through the gulf in hungary russia. You know the the that is is uncomfortable because it's it's not far away. This is happening in london. It's happening in washington. I'm sure you know it's happening on our country's yeah yeah. Mohammed gave pegasus bone sauce. So let's end with a little more Trump book news. It's given us so much lately bent so the latest book is from stephanie grisham. She worked on the trump campaign than she was milanez. Press person then she was the first white house press secretary in history who never held a white house briefing when they said this book was coming up by the way i didn't remember who she was and it's pretty extraordinary that i forgot the name of someone.

"So this morning. Michael cohen is back in the news. Tweeting about jared kushner folks and this is the same jared kushner who as we know is the son-in-law to donald trump his net worth is about eight hundred million dollars he just recently purchased this twenty four million dollar fixer upper in miami beach. And this is the same. Jared kushner that according to michael benders new book called. Frankly jarod told. Rnc chair ronna mcdaniel. He didn't give enough about the republican party. I don't give an f about the republican party. He said and he reportedly said this in the lobby of the trump international hotel in washington. Dc while having a tense exchange with rnc chair ronna mcdaniel in after. He said that she blacked out. Good to know good to know. I'll be ranked for chair a second term. And i'll make sure you don't come anywhere near any of this. So michael cohen. Here's his tweet that he's tweeted out earlier. Today about jared kushner and it goes like this interesting. How jared kushner's name appears to be absent from all the controversy. Edite -ment arrest. Is he next to fall or cooperating witness knowing what a sneaky is. I bet the ladder now. What makes his theory. Interesting is the fact that like i mentioned. He's got a lot to lose the kushner's do and ivanko and the indictment against weisselberg that was just issued it twice listed in unnamed co-conspirator which has led to speculation like this that it may be jared kushner. And he's he's just in a position to cooperate. Here folks have listen to this. This is something that michael cohen also said back in june. Here's a video. That i want you to listen to the problem with everybody. In the trump organization is that they all lie and they will continue as i did include with congress. We all lied. In order to protect donald. The problem though is that there were documents. That show opposites that. I wasn't the only one that line in the creation that document it was ivanka. And jared the lawyers and secular and cobb. And you name it. I the law. All of them were involved in the established in the setting up of that Of that information to con- jeez okay folks. I mean if jared did have a hand in this. I in speculation. I get that if this is true. I mean obviously lying to congress would be leverage to make jared kushner cooperate today with the prosecutors. I mean that's that's a hell of a serious claim. I mean lying to congress is not something that is taken lightly and extremely problem. Problematic for jared kushner if if this is true and with all of this i just can't help but think that with all of this is coming out you know if if he is cooperating with prosecutors All of this information that's coming out. I mean can you really imagine donald trump running for office in two thousand twenty four with all of this coming out in continuing to come out. I mean it It could be if he does continue to run. And the republicans are not smart enough to push him off the dock at that stage and not get him on the the twenty twenty four presidential boat. I mean it could be a washout for them now. The first test of that obviously is going to be in twenty twenty two when we've got the midterm elections. So let's see where this ends up. I made that turns out to be a wash for republicans in very well could be. I mean that does not bode well for donald trump running in twenty twenty four till then folks. Thanks for tuning in..

I guess or whatever he would be writing or talking about. Yeah i mean the trump one would just automatically be completely untrustworthy. I guess kushner would be too so.

Trump pardons Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Charles Kushner
"Trump parted another batch of loyalists including Roger Stone and Paul Manafort tonight. Charles Kushner, the father of Mr Trump's son in law. Jared Kushner also had his legal record wiped. The president made this new batch of clemencies just after leaving the White House for Mar A Lago in Palm Beach, Florida ABC News Political director Rick Klein joined W. T. O P s Dmitri Sodas to take a deeper look at those pardons, stunning series of names, the kind of list that you can't imagine any other president ever. Compiling about a month before he leaves office. These are political loyalists of the father of his own son in law, Jared Kushner, among them in Paul Manafort, Roger Stone to individuals who remained loyal through some very tough legal times. They really brought upon themselves the president clearly using his power now, on the way out the door to reward loyalists in ways that would be unfathomable. You know the any other administration. This is not The normal channel or the normal course of business. These are not people that would have been pardoned, or Heather senses committed by any other president, but saying oil to President Trump has paid off for them. Can we talk about the Mueller investigation as sprawling and wide ranging as it was essentially being undone here? Is that my my overreaching or is that correct? I think the president is systematically taking away the accomplishments and undermining The very real prosecutorial work that they accomplished particularly with the Paul Manafort conviction. I think the Roger Stone one probably fits into this is well, you had a office inside the Department of Justice that was very aggressively looking for things that were prosecutable, and they found them in many cases, and now the president is coming out and saying This whole thing was Was a witch hunt from the start. And that's That's what his former national security adviser, or, you know, already the beneficiary of one of these pardons one of these computations and I think yes, I think anything associated with Mueller, the president is more inclined than most to say. This is something that I can undo with this pardon power we have heard in recent months. Defenders of the president point to the sheer numbers that is that other presidents maybe take Bill Clinton as an example, may have actually pardoned more people in the end and that President Trump should Not be criticized for using one of the few powers that a president can wield. Shall we say unilaterally, and he can use it, But I think the criticism is very much justified when you realize that this is not the normal process where people petitioned for the Department of Justice, you get a recommendation not to say that other presidents have never used political loyalties, particularly Bill Clinton in the past, But we remember times were Where there was outward lobbying on George W. Bush for Scooter Libby from his own Vice President Dick Cheney. He's still resisted and said, No, I'm not gonna issue that pardon. Actually, he was pardoned ultimately, by President Trump similar for Barack Obama. He did not consider pardons that that would have that kind of personal connection. They went up to the Department of Justice. The president has this part in power, he can use it. It's one of the few unchecked, unchallenged powers, but it's clear that President Trump is using it specifically to single out people that have been loyalty to him to pay off political patron's political donors, people in his own family. It may be setting up the ultimate pardons, which would be potentially pardons of people in the inner inner circle and maybe in his own family. There are partners on the way out the door of his sons of his daughter, Ivanka, maybe of himself. That would be the ultimate tell and truly without precedent. That's ABC News political director Rick Klein, who joined us on Skype.

Morocco Becomes Latest Arab Country To Normalize Ties With Israel
"Me happy holidays. Another Arab country has decided to join the Trump Administration's Abraham accords. Under the deal, Morocco will normalize ties with Israel. In return the U. S is backing Morocco's bid. Sovereignty over a disputed territory. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. Israel in Morocco have already had informal ties for years. But now in a tweet president Trump says they've agreed to full diplomatic relations. His son in law and adviser Jared Kushner, expects things to move quickly. They will grant overflights and direct flights to and from Israel for all Israelis. They'll reopen the liaison offices and robot and tell Aviv immediately with the intention to open the embassies you know, in the near future. For its part, the U. S. Is changing its policy toward Western Sahara Ah former Spanish colony In the past, the U. S. Has worked with the United Nations to promote talks between Morocco and the Polisario Front, which seeks independence for Western Sahara. Kushner says the U. S now recognizes Morocco's sovereignty over the disputed region is something that's been talked about. For a long time, but something that seemed inevitable at this point. A statement from the Polisario Front question whether the move by the U. S violates international law and said Morocco is quote selling it sold to maintain its illegal occupation. Trump's move also took the U. N by surprise. We've just learned of this through Twitter post, U. N spokesman Stephane Dujarric says the secretary general is still convinced that it's possible to reach a negotiated solution based on U. N resolutions. One Former U. N and U. S diplomat Jeffrey Feldman says the U. S. Was already leaning toward Morocco's planned offer some autonomy but not independence. For the people of Western Sahara. Previous administrations have never come out fully in support of Morocco. There's been kind of a wink wink nudge nights. The Moroccan economy plan looks pretty good as a basis for How you would negotiate a permanent settlement. But he fears that President Trump's move will short circuit diplomacy, leaving the Saharawi people weaker as he's done with others. He hasn't shown much empathy for weaker parties. Whether we're talking about the Kurds in Syria or the the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, and now this stuff rallies, Palestinians are sounding frustrated, too, as more Arab countries agreed to normalize ties with Israel
Will There Be Second Stimulus Check Before End of 2020?
"Our show today with the conversation with Jason Turner. He's the head of multi asset strategies. When trust wealth management you can visit when trust wealth dot com to connect with Jason and his people. Welcome to the show, Jason. I hope you're well. Thanks. I am and good to be with you again, John. You know, I sort of Promoted this conversation is saying the good news is that Things may be bad enough that they're going to get better. That is some of these jobless numbers in Illinois and elsewhere are are Maybe this sort of thing that's going to push the Congress into finally getting off the dime here. What do you think about that? I would agree with that statement. As is unfortunate. That sounds that things have to get bad to get to get better. This has created some momentum for another stimulus package that quite honestly before Thanksgiving, I thought was an impossibility before the new Congress was stated in January. It's funny because some of our guests have said it would be impossible for them do not have one before the election. Now your horizon was Thanksgiving. But a lot of people thought this would happen into the election because nobody wanted to go into November. 3rd not having passed something past that point Then you thought maybe they wouldn't do it at all, huh? I thought with the lame duck session of Congress on the high level of political polarization we've seen throughout the course of this election cycle. It was not likely that we would see something, however, as things have gotten worse from unemployment perspective and from underlying economic data. That has pushed the members of Congress to come together and try to reach a bipartisan agreement to provide at least a lifeline for a few months. For those Americans that are really struggling. How is it shaping up? Then? What are you looking at? Yeah, I think what we've seen in terms of the bipartisan effort from the members of Congress have been working on. This is an extension of the unemployment programs that have been critical Both of those that are self employed gig workers and the like, but also to those that have exhausted their statement benefits so an extension of additional benefit beyond any sort of state limitations. And then an additional of $300 per week in terms of federal benefits that we saw on the extension that was forwarded late summer after the initial $600 additional benefit wore out. So instead of the 600 boost, you get a $300. What about a gnat's unemployment? What about stimulus? Are they going to send checks directly to people? And that's the difference in the two proposals that are out there on the bipartisan congressional effort. There's no individual payments to individuals. The proposal that was put forward I believe yesterday by the Treasury secretary traded that $300 additional federal unemployment benefit for $600 stimulus checks directly to Americans. Is it fair to compare what we're doing to other countries? I mean, where this republic and we are capitalistic and not all countries in the world are those two things, but I did see a chart that showed what are Aid to our citizens is like in the pandemic compared to other Western countries, and ours is small compared to what Germany and France and other countries air doing for their populations. On a relative basis. That's true. I obviously the size of the United States economy relative. The size of some of those economies in Europe is a different factors on absolute dollar terms. That's a little different picture. But you pointed it out well, that we're we've got a capitalistic bent to our our Republic. And that's different than the constitutional democracy should find in Europe that are a little bit more focused on a common welfare and what we've seen work in Europe in terms of the German model, for example, where unemployment is not skyrocketed because they provided Payments to businesses to keep people on payrolls as opposed to unemployment benefits. It has a different effect in the short term, but it also changes things in the long term. The American approach provides for a potential long, longer term, large scale restructuring of the American workforce For what may or may not be a different world after we emerged in the pandemic. First new European approach and promotes the the status quo from from pre pandemic times. One last thing into your crystal ball. Anything else that you're seeing her that we should know? I think the interesting development we've seen with the push towards additional stimulus. Now is a revision in GDP estimates for the fourth quarter and for 2021 looking a little bit more. Rosie. I think we were expecting Moderately strong fourth quarter because we had some some effects of improvement. I think we're expecting a little bit better fourth quarter now because of the prospect of extension of stimulus, and we've seen some Some underlying stability and consumer spending through the holiday season. I think that'll bridge into next year, particularly with the vaccine developments. If we do see vaccines distributed, we should see stronger 2nd and 3rd quarter 2021 GDP results they were initially expected actually could see, uh, full year GDP growth and in 2021 north of 5%. About that. I'm thinking of Jared Kushner, who in the spring said that in July, this economy is going to zoom. He may have been right but just had the wrong year. I hope that I hope that's the case.

"Monsters is Jared Kushner, and even as he is in Britain with daddy, and law, Donald Trump. He is pressing for a bigger role in the president's reelection campaign fundraising wants to be closer to that money. And as you know, I'm not a fan of Jared Kushner, and I don't think you should be a fan of Jared Kushner, he's used his government position to influence policy. We've detailed many times what he's done. He's perverted general US policy toward any number of Middle Eastern countries so that he could feather his own nests to that they would get him money, and huge real estate deals. I mean I'm talking a billion dollars. Plus, anyway, he's involved in everything, as you know, and from since the very start Jared Kushner has been put in charge of most everything that is associated with foreign relations as far as the country's gone. I'm talking about, as far as country goes, we're talking about Middle Eastern relations European relations he'd hoped for what he promised was the deal of the century in the Middle East peace plan. He's been pursuing that supposedly through back channels for more than two years. You know the Jared setup. Back channel communication to the Russians. That was the very first thing he tried to do. He wanted an UN monitored communication, with the Russians that was during the transition before Donald Trump had actually taken formal occupancy of the White House. So now he's saying. Jared Kushner is that he wants to be closer to the fund raising for Mr. Trump's twenty twenty reelection campaign. He doesn't like the way things are going down right now. They're being done through the Republican National Committee Rana McDaniel she's the chairwoman. So she's got a close relationship with Donald Trump. And that is something that we've seen Kushner doesn't like Christner doesn't like when other people are getting close to his father in law, and exhibit A was Rex Tillerson. He didn't want Rex Tillerson anywhere in the State Department. He ultimately sought to Rex Tillerson. Rex Tillerson's removal. Kushner wanted to be in charge of what was going on in the Middle East at the time. And that was about money. But this is unclear and let me be tried tried to be fair, always. And I'm not suggesting that Kushner is siphoning off money from the campaign. I'm not saying that I can certainly suggest you siphoning money elsewhere but not on this campaign. I think this is about politics. And I think this is about staying close to the president anyway. This Ronny McDaniel who's got a close relationship with Donald Trump, that said to irritate Jared Kushner and all the sources that, and there have been multiple sources that have been spoken to about this story say, yeah, he is looking to edge her out. They've got an amazing war-chest already Brett and they've raised four hundred million dollars. Well, it's easy when you are already in the office, though, because everybody wants to meet the, the guy at the top. That's so true, the Democrats have raised half that. So there was a dinner at which Kushner, really took over sort of these strategic positions, and try to edge out this run a McDaniel. This is helping to watch. But that's what's happening. I consider him sort of the lead swamp monster in a sense, because I feel as though he is pursuing any number of things. He's the real three d chess player in there. He's, it's about money. It's about staying close to power and it's about exercising influence, and then selling that influence alternately. Right. And you heard today that there was a house committee was trying to get some information about security clearances from the White House as they investigate how those clearances were given to people like Kushner and the White House has directed those two people not to turn over any of the information to congress. So there you have another system breakdown in our checks, and balances them. Yeah, there is. And this is when people ask me and you've been so great to contact me on Twitter. I'm at Martine live. Do you think there should be impeachment proceedings begin? I think you your hand is forced if you're congress. I just don't see how you how you. Don't do it. I mean, it's a blatant abuse of power. I do not think that you can limit them till though, to the Muller investigation, although I'd love to see some of the Muller stuff come out during a during an impeachment proceeding. All of a sudden things will become much higher profile, and so a lot of those details will come to light, and this is the way to bring them to light. But to limit any kind of impeachment proceeding to just what's in the mullahs report, I think, is normal enormous mistake, the corruption that runs through this administration and you can find it even in those security clearances that brought his talking about overriding. What was a clear situation of a compromised. White House official Jared Kushner and vodka for that matter. Why should they have top security clearance? If they're compromised compromised by foreign holdings compromised by debt, they shouldn't, but they got it because Donald Trump overruled, it, meantime, Paul Manafort, who was. Is really selling access, as you know, he's going to Rikers Rikers island jail change of scene for Paul Manafort big Tony. Rikers is known for. Holding some of the worst criminals in the country. Well. It's nice to have a kind of, you know. Shiny example of executive abuse in all of that. You know, I mean just just around out the prison population. You don't want all the hard core is running the place. You know, you need some guys can be a spokesperson, and that's Paul Manafort, now. What's interesting, it's interesting that they're talking about possibly putting him in solitary confinement for his own protection. I love that of always when I hear it, you're in solitary if your treasure. And by the way, I'm not saying it's not true, but it's a rough way to get protection man. Solitary confinement is not good. Many, many studies show this confinement is torture. Now there are a lot of ways to be confined in solitary confinement. They they're things that really are literally torture, where they, they darken the room. And they, you know, you have no stimulus and all this sort of thing. I'm sure he'll have, you know, don't get me wrong. It's four solitary confinement, a pretty nice situation, but it's still. Solitary confinement at Rikers. He is serving seven and a half years. For those of you who don't have your scorecards handy. The. Seven and a half year sentence, I am sure will completely he will be pardoned by the president. I have no doubt. I'm going to say, well, if he if Donald Trump were to lose the next election. Everybody's gonna get pardoned on the way out the door. They're going to be pardoned that you wouldn't even couldn't even imagine. Yeah. I think I think there may be. But when it comes to the state charges charge, there's nothing you can do. That's right. That's right. And that's where that's why he's being transferred to Rikers for the state charges, so. Oh, I see. So he won't be able to scape that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. He I'm sorry. He these these he's doing time on some state stuff now. Is that it? Yeah but I see a tough. It's an apparently he's not doing well. I was reading that, you know, this is taken a kind of psychological toll on him. But, you know, it's funny Brett prison. We'll do that to you, especially if you come from his lifestyle. Yeah, it has to get tough to get measured for a suit in prison. I find. Yeah. Just isn't happening George Nader is that how you say his name, the guy who is linked to child pornography, this started breaking right around the time we got off the air yesterday. We were scratching our heads. But now it's it's coming to light now. He was charged by criminal complaint over material that he was travelling with he arrived at Dulles airport from Dubai, and he was carrying a cell phone and that had. Well, it had minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct the had pictures and all kinds of material on his phone. So. You know who Nater was? He helped set up that meeting in the Seychelles. Remember the Eric prints meeting. Right. Yeah. That was just one of the many arrangements that he's credited for in the campaign in even after the campaign trying to build the relationship between other countries overseas. And the Trump White House. Yeah. Any meeting that Erik prince's part of is bad news. He is a bad guy, and he ran blackwater, as you know, that was the private security form firm that was really they made a fortune off the Iraq war. But anyway, that's Seychelles meeting that was between Eric prince and a Russian official who was close to Ladimir Putin, and there were some questions about that. That's still weren't answered by the Muller reports. So, but that's who this guy is, that's how he fits into the overall plan. The tariffs. Against Mexico are being criticized even by GOP members from high profile GOP, mouthpieces are saying this is a mistake. Mr president. You got back this off. Yeah. Minority leader Kevin McCarthy came out and tried to backpedal a little bit. But Trump reiterated his his effort to. To establish that tariff. He says it would be fullish for Republican lawmakers to take action to block the tariffs. So it sounds like he's getting in a fight with his own party over it. The other thing is he digs in. He loves to dig in. I mean when you push back on him, he digs in even harder, you know who he leans on when he does that is, is base. Yeah. That goes to the toxic masculinity, your thing we were talking about right. But the guy who served on his transition team James Karratha. No, he was head of foreign policy during the transition. And he's really been tough on Trump over this five percent tariff. Just the five percent members going go all the way up to twenty five percent. Right. He says from a policy perspective, it's using the wrong instrument for the wrong task. There are several members of congress who are looking at legislative options to try and prevent the terrorists from taking effect. The terrorists are attacks their attacks on consumers, and we're paying that tax right away. Did you see this CNBC's estimating that up to fifty thousand jobs could be lost in California at the tariffs were implemented? And if they remained in place in California for, you know, at least a year, so fifty thousand jobs in California would be lost. Just a that's a, that's a serious price to be paid. I mean, that's a that's appropriate pay beyond just financial one. Right. And I was also reading about how alternative energy particularly solar cells. They're being driven out of business in many ways because of these Chinese tariffs in between the auto industry. I mean GM is just getting kicked in the teeth over this. I just don't see, he's really a Jihadist on this tariff stuff. He really feels as though. That's the only instrument. He has. It's it's it's his one move. I was making this point a couple of weeks ago that somehow you know, he feels like everything's a nail and he's got a hammer. And, and unfortunately there are more subtle and different ways to. Exercise American power besides getting into a trade war, and getting into these tariffs. And I think we're facing some retaliatory tears from China that are we're gonna end up paying a price for it..

"Of chain migration. So Jared Kushner and others in the White House working for quite a while on a big immigration. We're happy the senators are coming over to brief to that. I in there that's fundamentally wrong. But why is Jared Kushner in charge of all this? I went back because I'd heard like jerk Kushner's doing this year because you're doing that and looked at all. Things that at some point either jerk Kushner, by the way, Yvonne, Carr's husband does everybody know who Jared Kushner is good point. Maybe not I wouldn't assume thirty eight year old New York real estate developer, married, Ivanka. Jerk Kushner is responsible negoti Middle East peace, by the way, you would think that would take up all your time. He's also been putting charge of solving the opioid epidemic. Another one you would think probably a couple of hours a day. Kush, responsible diplomacy with Mexico. Also with China. He's supposed to be working on reforming care for veterans. Reforming the criminal Justice system. Busy man and Ed add to it immigration now. I don't want to say it's only doing everything what is it. Maybe it's a smaller list through the problems in the United. We just named a bunch of them from China to the Middle East opioids immigration, and Jared Kushner is the point person on all this. Well, here's what good old Jared wants to do Bruce. Okay. So he's his again who elected him, but his border security Bill focuses on modernizing the ports of entry. They wanna make sure that all people vehicles and packages or scanned. Problem with this technology. Does that right a package of immigration proposals package? It's like, okay. We got we got a couple in here. And you, you know, the devil's always in the details, but it says that it would create a more merit based system. Give preference to those with job skills rather than relatives of immigrants already in the country. So more than merit based than hey, you got somebody over there in the United States. And okay, you get to come to you. We had a visit Australia New Zealand something like that though. Friends. Right. Where if you if you just you wanting to immigrate to Australia, it's a merit based system. So so America base system is not in and of itself a problem, by the way, I wouldn't come close to Austria wouldn't even remotely me. But you have to get points friend that did this certain skill worth number points. Certain education worth a certain income income. Thank you. And you get to a certain number points. Okay. You're is. Now, if you said that and it again devil in the details, if you had a merit base point point based system for the United States would any of these people seeking asylum ever encompass, oh seeking asylum. Or would they be a separate group because you could probably make the argument, none of them would make the cut on a point based system. But here here's the thing though. I mean, we're talking about immigration proposals merit based system. So to me that somebody who wants to immigrate to the United. States isn't the problem that we have down along the border folks that are seeking asylum. Not. Immigrants, but. I know I hear what you're saying. Is that is that a different word? I think five years ago ten years ago. This plan could have made a pretty profound difference on our borders. When it was just a Mexican males coming in. What are we had an illegal immigration problem right now? I don't feel as though it's an illegal immigration problem. Yes. It can easily become one. But it's more of an asylum program problem rather. Abusing taking advantage of whatever you wanna call the asylum. So how does Jared Kushner again who elected him? How does Jared Kushner's immigration plan solve the problem that we have down on our border? I want to see a copy of I wanna see charity outlook calendar. Nine AM to Middle East peace ten ten to eleven immigration, eleven o'clock. Starbucks eleven thirty negotiate with China. Like, are you kidding me? How can he possibly be quote engaged in all of these things? But there is listen is it a start? You gotta start somewhere, and we keep talking about congress, congress, congress isn't doing anything, and apparently Jared Kushner has support of the president on this plan. So is it a starting point? Is it something to build off of potentially because we have to start somewhere given the situation that this country is in more, particularly the situation Arizona's down Huma sector. Thank you, MS sector, really we're one of the big points is US customs and border protection said Monday, Monday, they detained more than seven hundred people crossing the border Monday. Fifteen hundred over three days now to be clear and the laws law. They are not illegal. Some of them might have been some of them might have been detained and they had no attention of applying for Silom attempting to come in the country legal. Absolutely. But we know that a vast majority of specially the women and children are using the magic word of Silom, which have been starts this whole legal process. And then how do you hold them in how long can you hold them? And then you have to release them. And then they come back for the court acknowledging all of that. I don't see anything Jared's plan like bed addresses the problem that exists today now because in all reality what his plan would do is keep immigration levels at their current level. Like the amount of people that we are granting visas to or temporary visas and things along those lines like that all the same it. No talk of changing asylum laws, which I personally think needs to be addressed too. We have to have the problem that's already been created. So there is this influx of people down on the border that are kind of in limbo. Right. You know, they've got their asylum hearing that they've got to show up for two years. Yeah. So we gotta deal with that problem. But we also have to fix the next wave. That's coming in. Because if we don't then we're just gonna find ourselves in the same problem year later, we know that in portions of Central America that they're literally I've heard it, and I saw a clip one literally running advertisements.

"That Trump never condemned and actually seems to support and remember Donald Trump just over the last couple of days have been defending what he said in Charlottesville and echoed call back into our memory right something that just happened. Not too long ago. What happened in Pittsburgh, Donald Trump and all of this hate, right? His part of the environment of today, and he bear some responsibility for and we don't know if it has any connection to to the politics that's going on. But I mean, it would be a stretch to say that it doesn't. It's always Trump's fault. You see everything bad that happens? According to the left must be Trump's fault because Trump is the evil bad Orangemen that haunts liberals dreams, and they can't ever just think about it an event for what it really was. And for in this case, the the atrocity of shooting another shooting in a house of worship they have to find a way to tie it immediately to the president of the United States. It is it is his fault. You know, the president who has a son in law who is Jewish and who is his top advisor, Jared Kushner is the presence number one adviser from everyone that I've spoken to in this White House. He has a daughter who he's obviously thinks the world of and she converted to Judaism. But the media would have us believe that President Trump is some kind of a secret anti-semites. This is. Really, the this is the line. They're going to go with this is the way they're going to try to make this baggage for Trump will the Android. Yes. Yes. Of course. That's what they do. They claim that the president is divisive. And then they tell you and me that the president the guy that you voted for not all of you, maybe. But most of you that listen to this. And that I voted for that guy. He's the reason for this. So if you support him, what does that say about you? That's what they want you to take away from this. That's their version of events here. That's what they're presenting you in the media, and here's C N N's, Don lemon and Alan Avar, two of the dumbest people on television. Talking about how they they don't even win. The president condemns. What happened? They don't believe his condemnation. Play clip one instead of trafficking in big bigotry in racism and anti semitism in hates and making excuses for us. I want to believe it. I want to believe that I'm gonna be real. How do you believe in? What should we believe? You don't believe him. We all saw. And we all know that he didn't say a word about the black churches. We all know that he didn't say a word condemning Steve king a congressman from Iowa. So it's time after time after time after time, no. But you. To believe that you want to you want to. But but I don't know that we can they're delusional. Navarro, and I don't know who else was lemon and some other voice came in there. They're delusional. You can't believe that the president condemns bigotry and yet. They can't believe that he's condemning bigotry. The president had nothing to do with the shooter had nothing to do with this situation. But it is his fault. You know, this this is just so destructive, and I would argue show dishonest. But this is what the Democrats do. Now, they find a way to tie everything to President Trump that has negative and nasty because there are people that.

And well, the Easter bunny is been identified turns out. He's wanted in New Jersey. If you're wanted kinda lay loan hang just a little bit under the radar. And one McDonald is the one who leapt to the defence of this woman. He fought with this man has happened Sunday night. And well, I give the guy credit for coming to the defense of the woman who's being attacked by the man, but apparently allegedly she spat on the man, I, but it turns out that the guy the Easter bunny outfit has a pretty lengthy criminal record an outstanding warrant from New Jersey. This is a coding to channel four W N B's only do that correctly. According to channel four W B C television in New York. And the man of the bunny suit. Is Antoine McDonald? He told multiple media outlets the buddy bro viral that he was not a violent person, but he has a criminal past the mum the other charges. He's wanted New Jersey connection with September twenty team vehicle burglary and has multiple other of rest. What extradite of this guy? He wasn't arrested in the Orlando situation. Mcdonald Mr. bunny man was most recently arrested in Pasco county in Florida, which is just north of Tampa Bay area. So in in Pasco, he was arrested in January for alleged identity theft officials said he tried to rent a u haul using fake ID. He was the person of interest in a carjacking and to our robberies in Florida and has a non extraditable failure to appear warrant at a New Jersey. According to the pets. Go catty sheriff's office. Police in south Brunswick, New Jersey said that they were aware of the bunny brawl video and said a warrant had been issued for McDonald October twenty eight teen in connection with Carpe burglaries, he never appeared in court and that warrant remains active, but it's not extraditable. So if he is taken to custody. It's they won't extradite them to New Jersey for that. And according to the Tampa Bay times, they believe McDonald had fled the states after the warrant was issued a possibly to floor will under a fake name also arrested for allegedly harassing a man on social media and spitting on a seven eleven employees in south Brunswick, New Jersey. So adamant he kids the rescue of the woman. Who spat on the guy, and then he also apparently is a spinner as well. For spitting on a thank heaven for seven eleven employees. The world is coming apart at the seams, ladies and gentlemen, but let me ask you question that goofy Easter bunny that they have at the White House for the Easter egg rolls analysts. It's not just Trump. And of course, Trump and Milania the first lady they hosted the Easter egg roll at the White House yesterday. That money off. It is creepy. We've talked about this in the past and that bunny outfit. I does that go back to just the Obama administration. Or does that creepy scary bunny outfit disaster back to George W Bush's? Well, anyway, that bunny outfit is it's just it's kinda maniacal. It's craz looking. It's just it's weird. But I gotta be honest. I thought for a blazing second here wasn't it be cool to see the Orlando Easter bunny guy get into a brawl with the White House Easter egg roll bunny. Who would win who's in that bunny suit? Anyway. I think I think it could be former chief of staff John Kelly. Amir I I don't know maybe Ryan's pre-bus. Jared Kushner is in the creepy buddy of speaking, Jared Kushner. Dude. Downplaying the whole Russian interference thing. Listen, there was no collusion. I told you I know the Trump and his people did not collude with the Russians on any level. That anyone expected I said, no collusion. And of course, Muller report said no collusion, but the Russians interfered fearfully. So let's question is what did the most damage to our democracy? Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election or the investigation into the Russian interference. Well, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner also presidential senior adviser as well as a guy on the path to very interesting credentials for national security clearance levels. He's downplaying this. I don't understand this. Why Jared Kushner says the Muller investigation was more harmful to the United States than the Russian meddling? Situation. I I can't agree with this. Listen, the Muller, listen carefully. The Muller investigation, and certainly. The division is country is absolutely damaging is no doubt about it. But pound for pound here with the Russians interfering on such a vast level of foreign entity, a foreign government trying to screw with what sacred in this country, and that's a lecture and certainly a presidential election. That's pretty free consensus, folks. And in his first public comments since the Muller report was released last week Jared Kushner now he minimize the conclusions of the report which found that there was a massive effort by Russia on multiple fronts to manipulate the election via social media and computer hacky, folks, I've said this for very long time Russia is a criminal operation on so many fronts. Vladimir Putin folks is a criminal. He is like a syndicate. Mob boss. They are criminalized country operation. And they'll stop at nothing. There was also a sixty minutes piece that occurred on Sunday night where they they're talking about this. You know, this Russian hacker who sensually than brought into the fold of the Kremlin. I mean, they protect these guys several big hackers. Monetarily stealing my identity. That's a whole litany. And flat. Putin is fully aware and vitamin Putin has given them his blessing essentially, so you cannot discount. What so ever the Russians and how they operate how they did operate how they do operate how they continue to operate. It is ongoing. So at this time magazine time one hundred some Jared Kushner said you look at Russia, did, you know, buying some Facebook ads to try and so- descent and do it. It's a terrible thing. But I think the investigations and all of the speculation that's happened for the past two years has had a much harsher impact on a democracy that couple of Facebook cats. Let's I'm not doubting. The fact that folks I am not downplaying the fact that the motor Vesta Gatien and the discord, and what was torn in this nation different factions among deny that that did damage our country. And in the aftermath continues. But with Jared Kushner did here is to try to come up with an equivalence here and try to suggest that the Muller investigations worth worse than the Russians and that they by minimizing saying they bought some Facebook ads. I mean, really you're going to. You got to reduce the Russian activity to just buying a couple of Facebook ads. That's dangerous too. So Jared, Kushner, I totally disagree with you there. I do not do not minimize what the Russians have done and what they continue to do. And what we believe they're going to do in the twenty twenty election. He's very effeminate. By the way, Jarod Kushner, they gotta do like male skin-care commercials or something that's what he ought to do. You're right suture said the Jared Kushner is creepy than the White House Easter bunny. That's that's true. You know that the body the White House Easter bunnies sort of a cartoony depiction, Jared Kushner, so I can't believe that. Kushner is minimizing the Russian situation that is stupid. Anything? I can imagine. Let me take what's not stupid. Let me tell you. We ought to be doing. Let me tell you. What I did earlier today. I'll.

And and that's something that I think the intelligence community is very much agreed on and I am not always in agreement with them. But I think in this case, it's very true second, I think that the frame of this whole conversation around this summit was a little inaccurate from the get-go all of the analysis going in was warning against the idea that the president was going to be willing to agree to a bad deal. Just in order to have a win in terms of the the frame of of what this was on the world stage in here at home. I think clearly this sort of surprise number of people who went in there expecting that the president would give up a lot as opposed to doing what.

"Upsides of the desolation of this president is that so many people have found a really interesting voice on Twitter and elsewhere, the mystery can provides a lot of material to work with exactly you don't have to do much except regularly repeat why does Jared Kushner have a security clearance, right? Let's start by talking about Kushner's security clearance. I know this is the subject that concerns. You and concerns a lot of American citizens you and Donald Byer of Virginia. Have sent this letter to Mick Mulvaney, asking him to immediately strip Jared Kushner of his security clearance. What are your reasons we've been working on this issue for over a year? When we first realized that your Kirshner had cement, not one not two, but actually three security clearance forms at least because in the first two he'll mid his foreign contacts, and I've had to some of these forms myself in the past I have had a security clearance before congress and these forms ask very detailed questions about a third of the questions relate to foreign contacts. There's no way you can go there for him and not understand that the US government really cares about your foreign contacts and for JIRA Kershaw until mid always rushing contacts. To me was just an stunning intentional omission. He didn't fix though he was caught. And we wanted to revoke back then. But now, we realized that career folks who look at security clearances also said he shouldn't have a top secret one. They were overridden by the White House. And that is not right. And we think it should be revoked immediately. So I want to back up to the SF eighty six to mentioned the notorious form to get security clearance. And I've never done it myself. I did go through the hundred and twenty-seven pages which can be found for anyone online of this this form. That's just a bare. It seems like it's a harrowing experience to go through for anyone even if you're a clerk Kent, even Robert Muller would find it annoying to do one of the questions stands out as one that Jared Kushner cannot have gotten right? I think he reportedly made one hundred plus quote, mistakes on the form. No one's ever seen someone make that many mistakes question. Nineteen must have bewildered him. Do you have or have? Have you had close and are continuing contact with a foreign national within last seven years with whom you or your spouse or cohabiting or bound by affection influence common interests. And or obligation include associates as well as relatives. I mean, this is the kind of thing an immigration officer in Florida who lied about being bound by affection as they say think he slept with a for a national. He lied about it on the form and lied about it again to investigators and went to jail for it. This is not something that you mess around on correct? And you actually have to personally certify the form and on the certification page. It reminds you that only if you lie, but if you own it when here you information that is also a felony. So it's pretty critter us said jerk Kushner violated a law when he submitted to secure clearance forms, so that omitted material facts, but this is just one part of the security clearance process. The experts then take this information, and they look into it. And when they looked at all his ties to various foreign nationals as well as financial entanglements. They recommended that he not get a top secret security clearance at the fact that he has one right now really shows that you have a White House that doesn't seem to care much about security clearances. So let's talk about what you mentioned that since you've been asking for this clearance to be revoked even back when it was a temporary clearance. It became a top secret clearance. I think in may of last year a year almost to the day. After Trump appointed as director of personnel security. Someone called Carl Kline very hard to find anything about him. He's a former Pentagon employees, but he not only waved through and rubber applications that had been declined by as you say career security professionals security experts not only wave through Jared Kushner, but thirty others. I mean, who is this guy? So congress is now in the control Democrats, we're gonna find out this year, and really let them Erica public know what happened because the public porting is very alarming, it appears that this individual overrode the judgments of career security specialists, and not just your Kushner, but another thirty some folks also have security clearances that they probably should not have your Kirshner. Also does not actually have the highest levels of security clearance because he was denied for that. And thank goodness. The White House is not the agency for those clearances. So they couldn't override it. But he does have top secret security clearance, which is pretty pretty high. But at least we have other parts photo men who do not trust him to have security clearance at the higher levels. Lest anyone thinks that the mistakes and the rejection of Kush. As security form are simply kind of clerical errors that could be a felony. But just in themselves there has already been manifest danger to Kushner getting this kind of high level clearance. He's been free styling on foreign policy. We could talk about cutter we could talk about Israel. I think we might stick to Saudi Arabia because I know this is a subject that has concerned you for a long time going back to Obama that America's alignment with Saudi Arabia's always raise questions for people like you. And now we have Jared Kushner showing up in a it's always called a bromance? I think there must be a name in Arabic for bromance now because they use it so much in both media between Kushner and Mohammed bin psalm the crown prince, and then this thing that seemed I don't even have a word for it. I mean, it seems like he was complicit in a human rights abuse by attempting to help Mohammed bin Salman NBS, quote, weather, the storm of Khashoggi's murder, so MB. Connected directly, our intelligence services say that he ordered the torture by bone saw and everything else of Jamal cashew in American resident journalists in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. And then Kushner gets on the phone with him to whether the storm. I mean, you know, there's a lot of emotional disturbance that comes after you've just ordered the torture and murder of someone. I mean, I don't even know what to make that. Well, my first thought when the public reporting broke on that issue is that Jerker jerkers loyalty should be to United States not to Saudi Arabia Kirscher job as a senior White House adviser is to vice the United States, president not to help other countries leaders. The second point is if again if you look at public porting. He was having trouble with six six six Fifth Avenue a property that did not go well for him. He bought it away too high price it had significant amounts of money that were going to be do relatively soon, and he was trying to secure funding. For that the reporting is a cutter turned him down. So he went to other places. And then, you know, lo and behold, he supports the Saudi Arabia blockade on cutter. So the timing of that is certainly definitely coincidental. If not nefarious, and we also see that game based on volume reporting to crown prince has stated that he had your cursor in hip pocket that is very disturbing. If true. So again, these financial entanglements and pass before influence, I'll play a row into security clearances and security professionals basically said JIRA Christians should not have top secret security clearance. Sometimes we talk on Trump cast about how things like a monuments or the Russia contacts might be damaging to the world order where do you see that? This administration has already damaged the world order either in its relationship with Russia or Qatar Saudi Arabia or China or Israel. If you look at. Donald Trump's own statements. It's pretty clear there's a big for sale sign in the White House. Where basically he's saying he's not gonna take much of any action against Saudi Arabia because they buy a whole bunch of weapons from us. And that is unconscionable position to take a especially when starting Arabia's engaging this civil war in Yemen where there are multiple air strikes on civilians nowhere near military targets. Those look like war-crimes I've asked that department of defense inspector general to investigate to see if any of our personnel are complicit in war crimes, and it's simply appears that because Saudi Arabia has a bunch of money and oil that Donald Trump is not going to do anything about their abuses. I've asked your colleague congressman out of shift about this talk about how it was before the midterms, and then what changed with the midterms? So one thing that changed during the terms, obviously is that a Democrats took. The house. But I think the way we did it is significant we ran on issues of reducing healthcare costs creating good jobs infrastructure and rooting out corruption Donald Trump. The Republicans ran on big scary caravans that were going to invade America. And they got crushed because American people are not stupid. They realize these slow caravans show up at our legal points of entry. There is no invasion of America. And by the way, based on Donald Trump's own words last year, we had a forty five year low in border crossings. So we're now going to hear a state of union tomorrow where appears he's a double down on exact same argument that he lost this past November. So we'll see what he says in his state of the union, but it's pretty creaming Democrats want to work on issues, actually, take America forward and helping American people, and you've got the Trump administration trying to double down on or. Arguments that are factually not true and just or not resonating with overwhelming majority of Americans, do you walk around the legislature noticeably, brighter after the terms, it seems at least from your Twitter feed that you all are really energize, you know, it's all based on anger. But then I count to twenty before I tweet anything out. I I wish to president would do that as well. But there is a lot of energy and a democratic caucus, partly because we know that the last two years the Republicans in the house simply fell down on their constitutional duties of oversight. So we're going to start doing that. It took us a little bit time to constitute our committees that what happened in January, and now they are all up and running I'm on the house foreign affairs committee, and the House Judiciary committee. Our first hearing in house foreign affairs, wore in fact, be on the Arabian peninsula, and what Saudi Arabia is doing and Yemen as well as other parts of the world, and then in House Judiciary. This coming Friday. We're going to have acting general Matt Whitaker come in. And we're going to ask him a lot of very important questions. I think the American public should know the answer to and that will be. And that will be televised. I believe it will be. Last week was Niang in bed.
