Why Did Cassidy Hutchinson Testify Today at Jan. 6 Hearing?

"What is truth An individual testified today Cass hutchison And she's testified many times before this committee in secret But its last time they wanted her to go public Her testimony has become more aggressive The answer is to become more aggressive because her prior attorney was associated with the Trump people and her current attorneys associated with former attorney general Jeff Sessions so there's no connection there I don't know what that means When you give testimony it doesn't matter who your lawyer is He give testimony under oath Under penalty of perjury whether it's in the back rooms of the January 6th committee or whether it's in a public hearing So that doesn't make sense to me Why all of a sudden this emergency we've got to listen to her and then they say well her life has been threatened That's possible but how does that affect getting her testimony out immediately And not waiting till July or not having it earlier All of a sudden we have new evidence From an individual who apparently witnessed and heard everything Trump Pence Meadows White House lawyers Republican members of Congress

Biden administration faces challenges at U.S.-Mexico border

"A new development in the ongoing effort to reunite some 500 migrant Children who are separated from their families under the Trump Administration, zero tolerance policy at the US Mexico border. Biden administration will now allow families who were separated the option of being reunited here in the United States. Here's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas yesterday, stressing the need to undo Previous administration's work. We will dig out of the cruelty of the past administration and we will rebuild our nation's asylum system. And all of our humanitarian programs of which we have been historically so proud. Jacob. Sober off is an NBC and MSNBC correspondent and author of separated inside an American Tragedy, and He's been following this story and joins us now. Welcome to the show, Jacob Good to be back with your time you thanks. Yes. So the most significant part of this effort is that it allows families to be reunited here on U. S soil. Why is this especially important? Well for the very reason that the families left their home country and came to seek asylum in the United States in the first place. Many of them were fleeing danger, persecution of starvation, malnutrition, acute food and security. The list goes on and on and when they made it to the United States of America, the place that represented safety and security and asylum. They were tortured. In the words of physicians for human rights. They were put through government sanctioned child abuse, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was one of the greatest human rights catastrophes of my lifetime, In the words of official who had worked on the reunifications, as he told me directly, And so this is the recourse that all of the advocates and the lawyers that I've been working with these families now for over three years. Have been seeking and it's welcome news. It's not reunification yet, but it's a step in that direction. Let's get to the particulars. How will these reunification efforts actually work? How will families know about these policy changes? Literally door to door knocking and Central America. There's a steering committee in the federal lawsuit that won the reunification of the family's missile versus ice on their going door to door justice in motion the women's Refugee Commission kids in need of defense. This is a group that has been involved in this process for quite some time. But up until this point. The reason there were 611 parents of Children who had been separated, had yet not been contacted That numbers now 400. 99 after 112 of them have been found over the course of the last month. The reason it's been taking so long is because of a lack of willingness from the federal government under the Trump administration to participate in this process, and the Biden administration has now changed that. Okay. I have just under a minute with you. But the C l U and groups like physicians for human rights have applauded these changes. But they're also calling on actors involved in these separations to be held accountable. How How would that happen? I think it's the most critical, remaining unanswered question about the family separation tragedy. I really think that that's you know what it must be called, Um, you know, the president said during the final presidential debate, he believed this was criminal. He said he was gonna launch a thorough investigation of the Justice Department. There's plenty of evidence of who was responsible for this policy. Whether it was Jeff Sessions Stephen Miller, Jean Hamilton, Kristine Nielsen. Kirsten Yes, Excuse me. That list goes on and on as well. It's a matter of whether they whether or not they want to pursue an investigation, like the president said that they would Jacob will have to have you on again. Jacobs Oberoth is NBC's correspondent and author of separated Inside an American Tragedy. Thanks for joining us, Thanks.

Justice Department Sues Walmart for Alleged Role in Opioid Crisis

"Retail giant walmart is under fire for its alleged role in fueling the nation's opioid crisis. The justice department has sued. The company alleging created a system that turned. It's five thousand in store. Pharmacies into leading suppliers of highly addictive painkillers. The suit comes after walmart. Preemptively sued the federal government in october to fight. The expected allegations joining me now to talk more about this is washington business reporter. Tim pukekohe hi. Tim thanks for being here. Hi thank you so tell us what specifically is alleged in this lawsuit against walmart. The us government is listing walmart among relatively long list of companies. Now that have some role in the opioid crisis. What the justice department is saying. Is that through the system. That walmart created its pharmacies. It created an environment where doctors and drug abusers could prey on its pharmacies and have invalid. Opioid prescriptions by the thousands filled at walmart pharmacies. Now there were also some allegations within that lawsuit from walmart pharmacists that the company ignored their warnings. And the suit also alleges that. It was difficult for them to reject prescriptions. They found problematic. Can you talk a little bit about how that system worked. The government's lawsuit portrays a company in which pharmacists were under an extreme amount of stress confronted by demands from their own managers to work faster and from a deadly crisis. That was unfolding you right in front of them walmart. Of course it's famous for low prices and book sales and just as a matter of course wanted it's pharmacies to get out. Low cost drugs at a relatively fast clip. Fill the prescription fast. And according to the allegations of the lawsuit the walmart managers believed it would keep customers in the store and shopping and so that was a matter of course for these pharmacists. When you add opioids into the mix then it becomes a lot more dangerous. A lot of these doctors could see. Suspicious prescriptions the same doctors coming back over and over again over prescribing patients. They sought help from compliance managers at the company to do things. Like just you an on. Moss rejection of prescriptions from doctors. Like this and they were told time and again. No you cannot do blanket rejections. You have to do them. Only on a case by case basis and because of their other pressures to get these prescriptions out to get prescriptions. Broadly out very quickly in the end pharmacists felt like they didn't have the time to scrutinize. Each of these prescriptions and ultimately had to end up for filling a lot of prescriptions. That they believe were invalid to begin with now. Walmart had been expecting this lawsuit. The company actually preemptively sued the justice department. Can you tell us more about that suit. And what walmart is saying. Now there's been a broad and at times very aggressive conflict between the federal government and other governments around the country with different major corporations that are alleged to play a role in fueling this crisis. Walmart has taken an aggressive stance in trying to fight allegations before they came. The company filed a lawsuit in october. That said department of justice. Investigators had been looking into the company and had been informing the company of all these pending allegations and there are a lawsuit was a preemptive strike against that. They've said that in their opinion the department of justice and also the. Da had basically been trying to scapegoat walmart for the government's own regulatory failings and they'd said that for example many of the doctors that the department of justice said walmart should have been keeping an eye on are still registered and active with da. And so in walmart's opinion if the government couldn't stop these doctors for making prescriptions. He'll it's not really fair for it to expect walmart to stop at according to walmart's claims and its own lawsuit followed the law to the best of their ability and walmart today. Reiterated many of those same points and added that the lawsuit quote is riddled with factual inaccuracies and cherry-picked documents taken out of context tim. We've seen several drugmakers charged for their role in the opioid crisis as well as some settlements is walmart's lawsuit indicative of a widening of the investigation into the opioid crisis. And who else might bear responsibility. I hate to speculate on other companies that are going to be charged but what i think. It is emblematic for sure. Is that governments. Broadly but especially the federal government are being as aggressive as they can be about finding anyone with culpability in this crisis. President trump back in two thousand eighteen directed. Then attorney general jeff sessions to go out and file a major lawsuit. He was talking then. Spur more specifically about the drug makers. But yes what we've seen since then is a whole litany of lawsuits against not just the drug makers but distributors and now retailers as. Well one other facet to note in this case is that for a time. Walmart was duchess a retailer and the pharmacy for many for many customers but it was also a distributor walmart is is the world's largest retailer in has a huge network five thousand in store pharmacies at all not just at walmart's but at sam's club too and its reach throughout american society goes incredibly far. So what you see. The government here is finding another major players one of the biggest targets that could possibly come across and going after it as aggressively as it has gone against the drugmakers to that's wall street journal washington business reporter.

Behind The Scenes With Documented

"Magazine. Welcome to let USA thank you. It's nice to be here. Thanks for having us all right. So tell me how you get started with this idea to basically observe every single minute of the immigration court system so people would say that they would never let you in but you guys actually did it. So what was your aim? And why did you do it Max so we had been covering immigration courts since we started publishing which was in the summer of twenty eighteen and we had watched since Jeff sessions was attorney general back then and we had watched him issue policy decision after policy decision that had serious detrimental impact to the people who are passing through the Court System? And we knew this through data and we knew it anecdotally generally harder to ask for asylum and just being the court system. So what we didn't know is what it looked like and immigration court is very different from federal or state courts. You know. It's very closed off their court records accessible to the public. Even court hearings are hard to get into. So there's no real way of sort of opening up the hood and looking inside so we knew what happened and a statistical level but what we didn't know is what it looked looked like and what it felt like and what it was just like to be a person passing through and when you can take us back to that first week and that first day was there something that surprised you that first day. Muslim while the funny actually the first day the immigration calls were closed because of a snowstorm so they we showed up and there were dozens of people waiting outside with no idea why the costs have been closed. What is meant for their hearings People some people you know travel from Long Island and all over the state to come to these hearings to be there eight. Am You know sometimes waking up at four in the morning only so arrive and find out that the the hearing that they've been waiting for for years it's been rescheduled so that was a very good indication of the kind of chaos that The the reports were about. We're going to see over the coming weeks. So this is a pretty massive process right and there are in fact hearings hundreds of hearings a day. So what were the specific things that your reporters were looking for tracking tracking so we would tracking a number of different things For each hearing the court reporters collected the basic information. Yeah the name date of birth. The judge's name Damn Immigration Chinese name the Ice Attorney's name but then they are other factors like did they even have in. Its know we witness a number of immigrants who on represented in the hearings. And we know that that can have huge ramifications for their cases for detained hearings. We also wanted a monitor what it was like for Immigrants who are being video teleconference then one of the things that the trump administration's us a lot more than previous administrations is video teleconferencing of immigrants. Who are in jail and that technology causes a number of issues And there's been a law of malfunctions often leads immigrants spending longer in detention and then we mark the number of the major decisions attorney. General Jeff sessions made during that time making it so the People who are victims of gang violence and domestic violence could no longer use as grounds for asylum. You know changing the ways in which judges could manage their courtrooms preventing them from delaying hearings or terminating hearings or closing hearings. They thought were going on necessarily so we try to track all of those different things and see how they were coming together. Talk to us about how you figured out the issue of access and I'm wondering were there challenges from court officials. When they saw that you were in their courtroom Max. Yes so if the person whose case it is says you're allowed to be in there then it's okay but from the beginning they face just an immense amount of pushback from everyone from immigration judges to ice attorneys. People would do things like the ice attorneys would say to the immigrants. Are you really sure you want all the details of your case broadcast on the Internet and just sort of hammer at that point over and over and over until the person was just like no actually? I don't want you in here. Sometimes some of our reporters would get singled out by ice attorneys by specific ones. You know there was one who would follow our reporters out into the hallway and sort of like a cost them outside of the courtroom but all of our reporters were extremely tough and they just kept going back so all of this work. All of this reporting all of these collection of data and stories It's a lot to sum up. But what would you say are some of the main takeaways that you had when you entered the project? Yeah I just say the New York court historically was was a lot friendlier the immigration call system as a whole. Maybe not but the New York going particular. The judges the work that the system in place. You Know New York because one of the only cities in the country that has a public defender system for immigrants. This is unprecedented. Pretty much all around the country But that system and so many other systems that are in place neil to make them more equitable and and More similar guests the kind of due process rights that you might get an a criminal call which just piece by piece dismantled over the course of three years And it was pretty stunning to see that play out. And and the impact of that hat on on a number of immigrants cases in lives. And this didn't just happen overnight. You know it was a very concerted effort on the behalf of the Department of Justice to make all of these little incremental changes in policy and legal decisions that have amounted to this and now with cove nineteen and this pandemic and New York being the epicenter. The immigration system and the asylum system in many ways has just grown to a complete and total halt. The Department of Justice has halted all hearings for non detained immigrants. They continue to have hearings for those who are currently detained. So can you tell us what about those hearings and our courts able to make this happen with concerns about Cova nineteen spreading? Yeah it's It's a really fascinating time What's happening right now in the immigration calls because this unprecedented alliance is formed between three groups. That rally together on anything so immigration judges immigration lawyers and prosecutors. Who WORKED FOR ICE? Have all come together in this unified front to call on the Justice Department which oversees the immigration courts to shut them down during the pandemic And they've all come together because quite frankly they're scared for their lives. I don't think there's ever been a moment where they worked closely despite this the DOJ insisted on keeping immigration court hearings as you said going for immigrants who are in detention. You know that even includes children who are in shelters as while they also have to pay for their gracious hearings you know. I spoke to in a tiny. He said that she represents children. She went into twenty-six Federal Plaza during the pandemic With a group of children who had the hearing that day and the cost office literally spraying clorox into the air and some sort of way to try and disinfects the environment you know there is not really adequate protections or safety is put in place for the staff that have worked there and a number of course. Staffers have contracted covered nineteen. You know they've been caught closures because courts office have tested positive for the virus the DOJ has now taken up the policy of tweeting out eleven pm the night before to let people know that the court will be closed because somebody has tested positive and then reopening at a few days later with very little

Smith says Wallace impossible to say exactly why one reasonable explanation is that the US is long economic expansion has been particularly beneficial for minorities your strong evidence that trump's rhetoric on race hurt him among minorities I don't know what that even means what rhetoric on race I mean this is the kind of analysis the tries to point out economically minorities are benefiting greatly from the trump economy and then it throws in a pejorative like this there is strong evidence that trump's rhetoric on race hurts him among minorities well like what what's his rhetoric on race that's that is a total fabricated perception that is false the article goes on to begrudgingly admit none the less in the latest Gallup poll of presidential job approval trump stands at twenty percent among non white now again this article keeps saying and in this is the kind of stuff the crap the media does that makes me crazy while trump's tweets may be hurting him among minorities the economy is no doubt helping what tweets hurt him among minorities is this person talking about all he does is right what what do you what do you call criminal justice reform what do you call a bracing Kanye west Candace Ohlins black activists in concert and and and high profile people the way he has very proud of the trumpet con a mi benefitting minorities but this article is so biased MM sitting there reading this Carl W. Smith Bloomberg opinion strong evidence the trump rhetoric on race what reddit give me one example they just knew why they got the orange man bad orange man must be racist I don't know let's say he uses rhetoric that anti minority without one shouldn't tell other evidence to back it up because trust me it's not there shop doesn't use anti minority rhetoric this is a this Carl Smith is a former assistant professor of economics at the university of North Carolina but here's this analysis pointed out I mean I mean I'm sorry even though he obviously hates trump he's forced to admit that is opportunities for minorities grow wages are rising faster as well over the last twelve months wage gains were non whites have been not only substantially higher than those of white but also higher than economists' estimates of inflation plus productivity so you're right I agree with you Sir there's a lot has been accomplished in this administration and frankly the president needs more more friends than enemies and I think Jeff sessions is a friend one eight hundred six five five Mike one open line eight hundred six five five six four five three years can can welcome aboard how are you hi Mike I agree with you he was here and and put another little wrinkle in it I think that Jeff sessions he made a mistake and but he was done in by the deep state or whatever you wanna call it they gave him bad advice and help reflects on it in these last two and a half years how many times has trump then been taken in by bad advice from deep staters and right and what they're still doing torment session Jeff sessions has always been a class act you made a mistake yeah and it's a it's it's a shame because it ended up being a huge mistake but it's not much more of a mistaken general Flynn made of you know or anybody else all right I cannot I'm sure in rough you we're in uncharted what we this is All I charted waters this whole run out a hoax we've never seen anything like that before so Jeff sessions is thrown into the fire you know goes from the frying pan into the fire and I agree with you I think it was a mistake you should of never recused himself but that doesn't mean he's a he's an enemy of president drops I think what I think Mitt Romney is an enemy our heroes are but just sessions listened to the wrong people and acted on it and then later I can I can just bet you he rules the day that he did that because he realizes that Rosen seeing all these people they were out to get from you and this was a guy well let's get him they knew he was a class act not a pushy guy right and he didn't know he should not have listened but he did it and it was a huge problem and look what it's become but I I think if he had not recused himself you never know but I think that if he had not yet we still would have had some other version of it we just would not have made it work what they did they jump from Russia to Ukraine they go they go they there there there were just try other trying everything they're throwing anything they can at the wall to try to make something stick anything in order to remove him from office yeah but back to sessions remit last night on Tucker Carlson it was a it was a very insightful kind of conversation because sessions criticized fellow Republicans for not working hard enough for president trump he said we need to get some Republicans moving who haven't been pushing hard enough to advance the trump agenda this so that's what I look for to do it and I think I can contribute to that so again that's not the kind of stuff you hear permit rami you think Mitt Romney is encouraging fellow Republicans charter for Donald trump's agenda you kidding me frankly a Mitt Romney as far as I'm concerned is probably a part of the crew very much a part of the effort John she discretion a big weekend for genesis movie Dennis Prager's no safe spaces opening tonight in theaters everywhere it's such a brilliant expose about the way the the the free speech is under assault lot of conservative heroes in the movie get out there this weekend because of we have a big show in this weekend they'll put it even more theaters next weekend good and no safe spaces dot com slash theaters and see where it's plain and support the spine movie no safe spaces dot com slash theaters okay with the holidays approaching I've got a great cleaning product I want to recommend to you genesis nine fifty with water genesis nine fifty breaks down the bonds of stains and odors they're gone for good you've got a dog he got a.

"Time after he leaves off. Yes. If we do investigations, they nation is there with Lynn y Rome is burning this president needs to be impeached. I wouldn't be surprised after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail. You know, they're shocked that the news is tightening. The people might go to jail. You're exactly right there. Live. All going to jail. But you think some people are gonna wind up in jail, not just one individual. But people floral is that what you're saying. That's my impression. Yes. It's not out of the question that the Senate could convict on a peach charges. He has no idea that right? He's going down. It certainly looks like they are the kind of offenses that would call for impeachment hearings. Absolutely. At thinking can be looked at and then charged with obstruction of Justice. But at this point, you're confident that at least some Trump associates will wind up in jail if I was betting I would say, yes. The day if Trump chooses the country over his family's at a good thing. Or would you rather have vice versa? Well, I think they're all gonna end up together in prison. Right imprison family prison together sharing a cell. So he's a daddy's grandfather he's kind of listened to that night after night. And then he gets frustrated, and he says I want him gone and for that they say obstruction of Justice. He doesn't carry through it. But that for that for thinking that for feeling that way, a natural human reaction. Now, I read the article in political I guess it was yesterday. Now, CNBC Muller report recounts, ten episodes involving Trump and questions of obstruction. I read this stuff and it is laughable. They actually use as justification of obstruction. The fact that Trump was trashing Jeff Sessions on Twitter. Yeah. Jeff Sessions recused himself. The president trashing him on Twitter for accusing himself is obstruction of Justice in what world is that obstruction of Justice or the president going after Robert Muller on Twitter or calling a collusion on calling it a cover up a witch hunt on Twitter. The special counsel found no evidence, really. But they wanted to allude to things. So that congress could have something to do. So that the people who worked for Muller feel like, you know, we gave them a chance give them something to look into. And we'll get all these instances a possible, obstruction of Justice. Of course, in this entire conversation of obstruction of Justice the underlying crime of collusion with Russia. Never happened. I'd like to know something when did Muller. No VAT, by the way. When do you think Robert Muller and his team knew there was no collusion. Why did he not come out and say anything why did he not come out and say, listen, I just want the American people to know your president did not collude with Russia. Go about your day. We're looking at other south. But just wanted you to know. No collusion. He's not a criminal. Go ahead. Speed enjoy the rest of your day. Why did he not do that? Great point that everybody. I think should be feeling right now is well, isn't it amazing? Our president. Did not collude with Russia. Isn't that a great thing? We should all be good. We should be celebrating. That fact right now, it's a beautiful thing. Our president did not collude with Russia. Great thing he won the election, fair and square. He's not a Putin puppet. Look at us. We're not doing that. Now, are we we are. But they're not why are you not doing that? Because they were so hoping it will come true. And now that it hasn't come true. They want to focus on something else. But the question of why did Robert Muller not hold the press conference? I don't know six months ago, come out and say, listen, here's the deal. We're going after some other people here, but not Donald Trump, the president didn't collude. I hear the media reports. I hear the stories, but I want everybody to know we're moving on. We have to look into what Russia did because Russia did try to affect our election. No doubt. But is special counsel want you to know the American people sleep well tonight because the president did not collude. Why did you not do that? The fact that he didn't do that is very very suspect in my opinion. And so when you read the mother report, and you see all these little Easter eggs of potential collusion potential, obstruction of Justice. I mean that he might have planted here. And there you understand why it is that marks points on Fox News. This morning was the special counsel on congress to have something to look into. He wants them to look into this. He wants to give them something. And what do you want to give them exactly he wanted to give them an argument that look maybe Trump is a criminal? Maybe he is. Maybe he shouldn't be there. And I think it's because Robert mother comes from that world of the swamp. It doesn't want him. There does not want him there. They don't want President Trump there. And he wasn't supposed to be there. Now that he is there they they won't embrace them. That's why the same never Trump Republicans you notice that are all saying the exact same thing. Democrats are tonight, which is well, it's obstruction obstruction. There comes a point where I think the average American person the average voter looks at this. And goes you people are insane. You people are insane. Give the guy a break. And then actually what happens is like a boomerang effect, then they come around and become even more diehard devoted to him. I've met people. I'm sure you have as well who have they weren't with Trump originally. And they were just kind of I don't know they didn't like him. They voted for him. But they weren't happy about it. Or there are a lot of people who were very early on very passionate about this president. But there were others who held their nose in voted. I have met a lot of those people who have said I am all in now not only because of the actions he's doing as president. But because they keep attacking the guy. It doesn't end. Now. You would think the Democrats are looking at it and say, you know, every time we come after him every time he winds up his support just increases his base doubles down and other people look at them and say, he's a he's a victim here. Why don't we move on? Why don't we drop this and move on? But they can't because of their hatred that consumes them, which is good for Donald Trump and his reelection. All right. Let's go back to the phones, shall we? Let us go to Steven Cape May New Jersey. Steve you're on the Mark Levin show. I'm rich. How are you? Good to hear your voice on. Joe? I get to hear you. You make me even though I'm upset about whether. I was calling today. Listening to Fox News. What exactly is the Justice? Our president was supposed to have obstructed Justice that we know is that it was found that there was no collusion, and he couldn't have obstructed that. If anything he obstructed injustice. That's a crime, you know, obstructing Justice. But he certainly didn't obstruct Justice and all. Cooperated fully, he didn't use executive privilege. He let everybody talk to the special counsel did everything he could. You even said to everyone. Here's the Justice. There was no collision, you know. And and I don't know that you have to call him. He was talking about conspiracy. I would say if I wanted to be involved in a conspiracy. Last person. I would want to be the conspiracy with Trump. He could do anything about now. Tweeting about it or something right by letting everybody know. Yeah. So that's a great point. I if you had committed collusion, why would you ever go out there and say witch hunt and everything you wouldn't be constantly talking about it. Right. Which is another good point to make. Hey, Steve, thanks for the call, buddy. I appreciate you. Catch me in Philly when you're in the area very much. Thank you, eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one is the number the president just retreated. Mark Levin, by the way, he can foul Mark, of course, on Twitter at Mark Levin show, president just retreated him because of an article on Breitbart where Mark says it's obvious from day one. There was no collusion. Play. Some of the audio his appearance on FOX and friends and the question for you is if you think I'm wrong, if you think marks wrong, if you think the president of the United States did obstruct Justice make an argument, I don't want to hear about your biography. I don't wanna hear about what classes you teach make an argument. What is the argument make it if you can if you can? But I have to warn you, you're probably gonna lose. But if you can try to make it eight seven seven three eight one. One. You're definitely going to lose eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one.

"One of the newer pieces of information to come out of the mullahs report was President Trump's reaction when he learned that a special counsel was actually being appointed more from Jeff more doc Justice department reporter at the Washington Times, Jeff what stands out. Stands out. I think it particular one of the things that is most interesting the president's reaction upon wording that the special counsel has pointed the expletives declaring at the end of his presidency. He was so incensed that betrayal Jeff Sessions after thinking of actually handed him resignation shortly after that because he directed one of anger towards the attorney chapel when he said the phrase, this is the end of my presidency at the appointment of the special counsel in in his mind. He think that meant it was going to end before even as the first four years at finished. Or did he mean at the end of one term, I think it's hard to know what the president. I think what he was referring to if you follow along with the special counsel that seems to imply is that he was he knew that his administration the country would be tied up. Not okay. Waste of the investigation. And he. He wasn't gonna be able to accomplish anything that's making a one term president. It was another interesting quo to where he said to the former attorney general Jeff Sessions. How could you let this happen? Jeff exactly that's really interesting, quote because it shows that President Trump really view Jeff Sessions job to protect him not to work for the toossion that Jeff Sessions represent which is the department of Justice, which is independent of the president. What else did you think as you were starting to digest these nuggets as they started to trickle out? I thought was most interesting was on the obstruction on the obstruction of Justice side in terms of the Trump Tower that they will not obstruction because the president wanted his team to y to the media, but not to congress for the special counsel, not about to obstruction. So basically, Robert Waller were saying it's colder y to the media just don't lie to us or congress, which I thought was kind of an interesting conclusion mile. So what? Happens at this point because we still have congressional investigations that will be part of this. It'll be interesting to see. Now, everybody's still digesting it and going through the report we saw cherry nab talking and he called it. I believe a road back to impeach -ment. I don't know if the Democrats are going to start that right now, especially with an election coming up. But there's definitely the house is going to have the house of the Senate definitely going to have their say on this Bill bars. Going to go up there on may first it may second to the house and Senate talks about the report. But also, it seems very clear that special counsel Moore's going to be called possibly members team at bars press conference today, he said he would not block or forbid baller from testify. So speaking with Jeff more doc Justice department reporter at the Washington Times talking about the release of the mullahs report should Mr. Muller testify. Could we expect something different other than what's in the report? We don't know because Mr. Moore hasn't said anything he has been very. Silent about this whole operation. He said. Even when he has said stuff they've been terse statements his press person. And last time we even heard anything was when he came out to denounce the BuzzFeed story saying that was investigated whether or not Michael Cohen had directed President Trump to why about the Moscow Trump Tower, and if you recall special counsel, put out a statement that that story was untrue. And that's the last week that that was four or five months ago. What about the Republican led investigations at this point four how the Russia probe all began with say connections to the Steele dossier. I think that's what we're going to start seeing. It'll be interesting to see the fight because you're going to be calling for an investigation into how this the Russian collusion narrative, which the president was cleared on developed while Democrats call peach mint bar said that he's working on his review, we won't know much about that until he testifies sure on makers press. About that talking about it dead mice. Jeff, Jeff, doc Justice department reporter at the Washington Times fourteen.

"You all in this audience will acknowledge that I have been blessed with a remarkable memory. It's all about how the brain synapses the deep dark crevices in their fire in coordinate together. And I remember this story about low caving illegals in sanctuary cities. I'd seen this before somewhere. So we did a quick search. Rush Limbaugh dot com. Ready for this two and a half years ago? Here's the headline from Alabama dot com. White House considers sending illegal immigrant children to Jeff Sessions home state right there. We did the story at the time, and as the company ING story from Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby. The two senators at the time halt Obama's plans to house illegal alien juveniles in Baldwin county. Here's the story June twelfth two thousand sixteen the White House is considered to be the Obama White House is considering a plan to relocate thousands of illegal immigrant children to the home state of Jeff Sessions. Causing some to question whether presidential politics is implied. Here's the difference. Alabama's not a sanctuary anything. I don't even know if they have a sanctuary city in Alabama. But the state is not sessions as everybody knows is a gigantic critic of illegal immigration. So the Obama administration doing this is a middle finger to Jeff Sessions. They're sending a bunch of people who have violated the law of Jeff Sessions, home state, and Jeff Sessions home state has not asked for them the big difference in the Trump story is at San Francisco and Seattle oldies under sanctuary cities want the illegals. They they advertise for them. They advocate for them. Sessions has for years led the opposition to immigration policies. Supported by President Obama plan would send the children to Baldwin county across the bay from sessions home in mobile county. So they were gonna put these people right in sessions front and back yard. Sessions has also emerged Donald Trump's fiercest supporters was the first Senator to endorse Trump Trump's hard line immigration approach, which includes a deportation of all undocumented immigrants at a wall built along the border has been embraced by sessions. Baldwin county Commissioner Chris Elliott said it's highly probable that. This is more political than practical said Baldwin county sheriff Huey horse MAC. What a great name for a sheriff horse MAC sheriff hawse Mexican, I hope that's not the case. The polls I've seen Jala Bama, very conservative on the immigration issue. The federal government is not. So you see FOX, and it was the Washington Post and do the story New York Times didn't do the story. Alabama media in the story. But the Obama administration was planning in a gigantic. Middle finger.

For example. If you're asking me what he's gonna do vis-a-vis the Muller investigation. Couldn't begin to tell you. Now this hearing that's going on today. They're they're these these Democrats are losing their minds today. Talking to Matt Whitaker man Whitaker's the acting AG. He's going to be leaving office whatever bars confirmed next week. And they if there's an upshot of this they are livid. They're getting angrier and angrier Whitaker is told them over and over again that he has not interfered in the investigation, and for some reason that's making them livid. I think they started the hearing today thinking that this guy has been in there trying to tamper with this investigation and screw Muller up. Somehow they've got him under oath. And I think they've expected to be able to corner him and get him to admit it. And he's answered every time. He's been asked that he hasn't had a thing to do. He knows it. He's seeing the he's he's admitted that he has been privy to the details the investigation, but he has not interfered in it at all. And they've got themselves tied into pretzels believing that he has and not just him. They think everybody that works for Trump has been trying to undermine and sabotage the Muller investigation. And they will not let this go, and they are really out of their minds angry today. And this hearing today if you have a chance to follow it look at it. It's just a it's a it's a forerunner of what the next two years are going to be this is all the Democrats are gonna do either. Even after the Muller report comes out if it's not what they wanted to be. They're going to be looking at people that they think undermined it sabotaged it. But everything I know about bar is. Great reputation, brilliant guy, the the one memo he wrote about this Muller investigation was not complimentary of it at all. He wrote a memo suggesting that the Muller focus on obstruction of Justice was just absurd. And which is was correct. But beyond that, I know no more than you. Do here's Ed Sun City, Florida. Great to have you on the network open line Friday. Hi, thanks, rusty. Does your opinion on something given all the way they're happening? At least politically Democrats side. I think we can sort of say if things continue as they are Cortez is becoming the face of the Democratic Party as a result of that. I just can't see Schumer and Pelosi and their ilk stepping aside and letting her beat the messenger. I just don't see it. Russia. I see I should have a lot of things perhaps going on behind the scenes, just my opinion. But I just can't believe that they're gonna let her dictate the message of the party. I ju just your thoughts. Well, I think we're already seeing evidence of that..

"This is is not a a one off. Right. The says been in some sense juggernaut of of different actions taken really quickly in the Trump administration to try to reverse what was painstaking history on your part literally from day one. We saw attorney general Jeff Sessions. Turn the Justice department into a weapon aimed at the heart of of LGBT people, but transgender people in particular, and you're right. That one of the first things that he did along with the department of education was rescind lifesaving guidance for trans students across this country ensuring that they would be able to have a fair and safe access to education, and instead decided that they would sort of use that power to try and marginalize and turn back the clock truly on the progress that we have made, and as you've noted there have been many other places in which this kind of tax happened. We see the Justice department trying to rewrite the law and right LGBT people out of the law. And then obviously, we know from reports from last fall of agencies literally trying to to write transgender people out of existence by coming up with with made up definitions of who men are and who women are in a way that would deny the existence of trans people. And so there is such. As a grand disconnect such a huge gap between the world that we are living in and the world that this administration is trying to reimpose upon us. That is is a scary time to be an IT person. And particularly for trans men and women, you know, the family members of the kids, you know, it is very difficult to try and find silver linings in this in this moment. But but I do see several linings C silver linings in the sense that you the the brazenness of the attacks is is drawn people out of their complacency and helping them recognize that we all have a responsibility to speak up when individuals are targeted in the way trans people are being targeted by this administration. We see parents of kids in becoming you know, sort of armchair warriors and walk in the halls of congress speaking out about not only these policies, but whether it's anti transgender judges or other ways in which their kids, safety and live. We. Otas being thrown like, I said as red meat to someone's political base. So I hope that we are going to use the energy that is being inspired in this moment as as a force that will keep us moving forward. Even if you know in the short term, we are going to continue to take somebody blows from this administration. Sharon McGowan is the chief strategy officer and legal director of Lambda legal which brought one of the lawsuits challenging the transgender servicemember ban. Sharon, thank you for all, the many many ways that you give voice to these arguments, which we don't always hear clearly enough. Thank you. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the chance to be here with you today. We're gonna pause now to hear from one of our great sponsors of show. And that is the great courses. Plus, I know that you listen to amicus because you're looking for inciteful credible perspectives on the world around you..

"Kilmeade show. We are back and yesterday we went inside the White House who have for a full hour. We had a chance to talk to Governor Chris Christie about his perspective. Now, it's time to get the perspective of cliff SIMS he's the author of team of I pers- my fifty extraordinary days in the White House. We know about a lot of White House books that have come out. There's nothing harder than Trump books hit books and support books, and this one clip SIMS how would you characterize this? It was five hundred days not fifty so don't cut off four hundred fifty days. Five hundred eighty five scare Mucci is you got to be a little bit more of that. You know, we're working in the White House. One of the things I noticed you mentioned several other books that have come out is you either had your Trump hit books. A lot of them full of nonsense or you had your Trump. Trump is the greatest thing that ever happened to the universe books. And what I thought was lacking was the first person perspective somebody who is there who was in the room who's going to give you an honest assessment the good bad. And otherwise, I think there are good bad and otherwise some of your background. You're you're an Alabama guy and. How you linked to Jeff Sessions. Yeah. Jeff Sessions someone or became friends with an Alabama covered him as a journalist there in Alabama. And he is the one who kind of brought me into Trump world toward the end of the campaign. The last couple of months, I took a leave of absence from my company to join the campaign in New York. And so just a longtime friend of his, and you you pretty much one of the people who has a flame thrower there. Right. You're there to what is your sense arsonist in one way, David Bossie called you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Now that came in to do some of the messaging stuff, and you know, with Donald Trump. Everything's about communications and messaging, and he's gonna punch any anything anybody that punches him. He's going to punch back ten times harder. And so a lot of what my job was. There was to be a part of the team that was punching back every day on behalf of doer candidate during the campaign. Where did you see the weaknesses were during the campaign? Well, I I guess all the weaknesses of kind of been vindicated is not being that big of a deal. I mean, we did have a lot of concern. About just I mean, it was so different than any campaign. There wasn't the traditional apparatus out in the states the way that you would normally have is a very small team. I mean there were basically four or five Hillary staffers doing the work of everyone Trump staffer, right? And so I mean, I guess you could consider that a weakness, but Trump was just such a force of nature. I mean, th that election anybody who takes credit for that election outside of Donald Trump is overstating their importance because it was basically just a camera and his microphone and crowds. All over the country the likes of which we've never seen before right things that you found do you didn't like about the president. You didn't think he was sincerely religious? You talked about how you told one story about how when the president was asked. You know, what do you do for ask for forgiveness? Would he say he said that I've never asked for forgiveness. I just try to do better. I just handle it myself. Yeah. Yeah. And that's kind of a look that's a core. Tenet of Christianity right there. Do we ask forgiveness for our sins? And you know, so I kind of I I do say that I don't think he is a religious man in the way that I am or maybe other evangelical are, but I think Franklin Graham said it better than I ever could. He's not a great picture of the Christian faith. But he has been a great defender of the faith think he deserves credit for that. Do you think he's doing a good job? I think on a lot of things he is. I certainly think on the economy is really tough to argue with these numbers right now. I led the messaging on the tax reform push. I think that that is really been what we called rocket fuel for the economy rolling back regulations. I mean, we're seeing historically low unemployment, and that cuts across all demographic groups, I really think what he's doing and foreign policy, and I heard Thiessen on here right before I came on. And there's a lot of pushback on what he's doing in terms of of pulling out of these foreign entanglements. There's a great scene in the book though, where it's actually about Afghanistan and all is kind of generals. All the people are saying, you know, we gotta stay in Afghanistan essentially in perpetuity, and he comes out of the Oval Office. And he basically says look someone's going to have to explain to me we go into these places are guys get killed seventeen years later. And no one can even really tell me why we're still there. And I think that that is a lot of people across the country that resonates with them. And so I think he deserves credit for for pulling back these foreign entanglements in a way. Biparti bipartisan consensus that we stay engaged in all of these things forever. He deserves credit. I think for for role in that. Yeah. Actually, that's where I disagree with you. I think that the way he's about to pull out of Syria and cut a deal with the evil Taliban. I think he's gonna blow up in our face. He tweeted this about you. I low level staff. Hardly new named cliff SIMS road, yet another boring book based on made up stories in fiction. He pretended to be an insider when in fact, he was nothing more than a gopher he signed a nondisclosure agreement. He is a mess. And I believe that there's a report they want to sue you. I saw tweets about it. I haven't gotten anything on that. So I don't know. We'll have to see what. How you do you feel as though he's accurately describing you. No. But I mean, this is kind of what we see. I mean, it's not the first time that this has happened. I mean, I barely knew Steve Bannon. I barely knew go down the list of people. And you know, the good news is for people that read the book, they'll see a great excerpt in the middle of about a dozen or more pictures of us in various intimate settings. And that kind of thing. So I mean, I I the one thing I learned from the president wa wa was there was the guy. Let's criticism roll off his back like water off ducks back. I'm going to do the same thing on this book. My my goal was not to hurt the president. I'm not coming after him. In fact, I had an interview with the Washington Post where their first question was why did you go so easy on the guy? Right. And but I want to tell you who hits the vipers. Yes. So the team vipers is first of all I was one of them at times. But it's basically the the the group of people that surround the president. I think oftentimes are not in their serving his best and Sean Spicer is one. I think he was terrible. I I did. And and and there was a scene in the book where you know, the president is frustrated because he seeing all these anonymous quotes about him by his own staff in the media. And he's like who are these people that supposedly worked for me? And he asked me that question, and I told him there was a point during the campaign when things got really really hard and a lot of us the next morning after access Hollywood we got up and got to the office at six AM because we're going gonna show we're not going to quit. And there were some people that quit on you. And when we came to the White House, some of those same people that quit on you were brought here previous you think was terrible. You thought he was weak. Yeah. I thought that was a disaster. I thought it really was why look a lot of us had never been in a White House before I'd never served in a White House. So there was some inexperienced there in terms of the processes that need to be in place to implement the president's directives. But just kind of contrast in with general Kelly Kelly came in and there was a sense of order. Donald Trump one thing that I think he gets unduly criticized for is the way he operates. Oh, it's chaos all the time. He's you know, if you go back to the way ran Trump orchestra least semi doesn't like a lot of structure he likes to come in start making. That's right. That's okay. But you need to have the staff with processes in place where when he gets creative and makes a call those things can be implemented that was kind of the difference between Kelly and Priebus, the problem with Kelly was he tried to impose his will on the president to. And that's where that relationship. I also heard Keith Schiller told go tell people Kelly does not like the president. Yeah. And and I think that was accurate and their scenes in the book where one scene in the book where Kelly so mad, and he's like, this is the worst blanket job I've ever had in my life. And people think I care if they write about me getting fired if that happened, it'd be the best thing I've had since I've been here. There's another scene in the book where did you hear that? Oh, yeah. Yeah. The president. When that happened. I'm not sure I'm not he wasn't there. No, no, no. That was in Kelly's office. Yeah. All right. So obviously, so we he took that job. And he was let go at the break. But you saw them fight a lot Kelly in the president. Not really, no. I think the one of the things that president does is it's not abnormal for him to ask anybody about anybody else. So if you were here, it'd be like, Brian what do we think about the coverage today? What are we thinking about the way in? So it's like, you know, he'd see me. Hey, what's going on with Sean today? You know, he said what's going on with Kelly today? You know, whatever it was more kind of like frustration to other people more than it was really accurately describe you as someone he barely knew. No, no. He knows you, of course. Yeah. Sure. So why did you write that? May I think he was getting a lot of pressure from some of the people that are around him in there that are not portrayed in in the way that they would like to be portrayed. Does it bother you that he's mad at you? Yes. And no, no in the sense that I knew that that was a possibility going into it. If you're gonna ride just an honest book about it that that was a that was a chance. So it doesn't in that way. On the other hand appears somebody I devoted two years of my life to serving. My whole thing in this book. And a lot of ways is I don't like this whole idea of the the resistance from the inside. I didn't agree with Donald Trump on on everything. A lot of times. I disagreed with things while we were in there. But when you're a staffer you have to ever lied to the press. No, no. So you're not a viper. Fiber to others on the inside a hundred percent. I mean that that the kind of the Trump's enemies list story that's gotten so much pickup is a great example of when he's asking me who are these people and I'll start dishing on my colleagues. I didn't think in retrospect at that was an honorable thing to do. And I realized that I had gotten caught up in this kind of game of thrones. So to speak where we're all fighting with each other, and I'm trying to push on out..

"They did it to hope Hicks. They did it to Jeff Sessions. That's why I say released the entire transcript you you're welcome to meet with Michael Cohen behind closed doors. See if you can keep your mouth shut for twenty four hours. Just see if you can do that. And then release the transcript because what you'll have with Colin is you'll have behind closed doors. You'll have some really responsible members frankly on both sides on both sides, Brian who were not going to go in leak, and if they do leak, they're not gonna leak selectively. And then you'll have some that do, and that's what does a disservice to the to the American people into the audience is to get half. The story and not the whole story that I am afraid is what's going to happen? A couple of questions you'd met with the president for the first time recently you intentionally did not want to talk to because you want to do an unbiased investigation with your position. And I guess other reasons, but what was he like he could not have been nicer. He he gave me an advocate a chance to advocate on behalf of John reckless to be the army general and ironically enough because of the passing of President Bush he had picked a Bill bar, which was fantastic pick. But he had picked bar, but he's still let me calm advocate on behalf of John Ratcliffe. He could not have been nicer. It was a broad ranging conversation from golfing, Lindsey Graham to he asked lots of questions, and and then he did something for my mom at the end that just could not have been a more generous or kind thing to do. We spent the first ten minutes trying to convince other people in the room that we had never met before because they were son, and I've talked to him once since then I was playing golf or Lindsey Graham, and they talked and Lindsey handed me the phone to go shake a golf shot. So I've talked to him twice could not have been nicer. Right. But look, I appreciate the chance that he gave me to advocate on behalf of a colleague that I have a lot of respect for and confidence in and that's and that's congressman John wreck. And just real quick. If you if you thought that you're going to keep the majority, would you have stayed? Did you get the sense that you were going the minority and Houston report that I would I would not have stayed. If you told me we're going to pick up twenty seats. Okay. I mean, I. Does the decision look better? Now that we're in minority. It probably does to somebody looking at it. But the reasons I left had nothing to do with whether or not we're going to be in the majority the minority it has everything to do with what we discussed a couple of minutes ago, which is the difference between real investigations and political investigations. And I just have no appetite at this point in life for political investigations that are unfair witnesses. Gotcha. Trae gatty it's been too long. I hope to talk to you again soon. Good luck and civilian life. It's a rough world out there. I know. Hey, thank you. Brian. Always good to talk to you, congressman Trey thanks back in a moment. Getting past..

"Jeff Sessions recused himself, which he shouldn't have done. I think he probably did the right thing recusing himself. President early seven tweets writing. Bob Muller is totally conflicted. I have the utmost respect for Bob and his distinguished record of public service. You know, I call it a witch hunt then it is a witch hunt. I don't believe Mr. Muller would would be involved in a witch hunt. The president's re tweets included one that showed a group of prominent Democrats, including his deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein behind bars, I have very high opinion of rod Rosenstein, I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I believe the Russians interfered or attempted to interfere with the election. Donald Trump and William bar don't agree on everything.

But I the government shutdown with no end in sight, both the house and the Senate say they are canceling next week's scheduled recess unless there's a resolution, but right now that appears unlikely according to the Associated Press President Trump showed no signs of backing down during a conference call with supporters yesterday.

Listen to this people are very impressed with how well the government is working with the circumstances.

The New York Times reports the shutdown is inflicting far greater damage on the US economy than previously thought as President Trump's economists doubled their projections of how much economic growth is being seen each week or is being lost each week, the shutdown continues revised estimates from the council of economic advisers show that the shutdown is beginning to. Have real economic consequences and the paper notes, quote, the analysis and other projections from outside the White House suggests the shutdown has already weighed significantly on growth and could ultimately push the United States economy into a contraction. Meanwhile, a growing number of federal workers pay steepening anxieties about when they will see their next paycheck. He yesterday. The Trump administration ordered thousands of furloughed federal employees back to work without pay as the shutdown drags on.

"Elrushbo eibnet. Dot US Rudy Giuliani with text. It is now clear that the Muller investigation is the illegitimate product of Peter strucks insurance policy to remove the president and the McCabe inspired revenge for firing Komi it explains they proceeded on the idiotic theory that the president firing Comey was a crime. Well. They did the whole the whole key to this. That's wrong to say that the whole key. But one of the fundamental aspects of this. Is that it was a counterintelligence investigation instead of criminal in when did it become that? Seeing that is dick vegetable waiting get it become a counter intelligence investigation. There is some debate about that. Because the two are wholly different for there to be a criminal investigation. There must be a crime. When there was never any evidence of a crime. There was never any evidence that Trump committed a crime and yet. Originally. This thing has always been portrayed to us as a criminal investigation. And that's why Muller was pointed up point. But it was it was really never a criminal investigation. Always counter intelligence, and by definition, there is no crime and counter intelligence. And so when you get to the the whole notion of firing Komi. Since there wasn't a crime. They were looking at getting Trump on obstructing Justice and the joke. Trump told about asking Russia. Defined Hillary's emails. They tried to say that that. Was in part are could be a case could be made that it was obstruction and firing Komi was obstruction. But of course, it isn't because Trump can do it, and he wants he can fire anybody he wants it anytime for whatever reason the price he pays if he goes crazy with this is political, but there's nothing anybody can do to stop the one person in charge of the executive branch. There is no committee there. There is one person in charge of the entire executive branch. And it's the president of the United States would be wants to fire the FBI director. We can they tried to turn that into a and obstruction case by firing call me and so forth. Anything they could do to legitimize what they were continuing to look into Rudy's point here is that the Mueller investigation. Is the illegitimate product of Peter Struck strokes smirks insurance policy to remove the president. Remember what he was texting back and forth with with Lisa page that they needed an insurance policy. But he didn't specify what it was everybody left and get what what what insurance by the insurance policy. What do we do Trump wins the insurance policy was how do we get rid of the guy if he wins while they're texting each other? It's not possible. You know, she is he's not gonna win. Right. He can't win right and McCabe struck is is planning to trim play. The the valiant strong alpha male hero guy. No, no way. No. I'm not gonna let it happen. Dear don't worry. I'm not gonna let such a horrible thing happen to you. But hey, we need an insurance policy. Anyway. And that's the Muller investigation. The Muller investigation has always been a distraction. It has always been designed to take our eyes off of the people who really committed crimes in all of this. The Mueller investigation is designed to give the media. A completely different set of targets to destroy and focus on the Mahler investigation is a cover up. No more complicated than that. It is a cover up of the crimes the real crimes, and the real collusion that was committed by Hillary Clinton, personally, not just with her Email server but colluding with Russians because commissioning the Steele dossier asking it to be written commissioning a piece of art commissioning that dossier opposition research product on Donald Trump. She knew that Steele was going to be colluding and talking with Russian agents. Then there's the hacking of the DNC server that has been covered up. There is the FBI not even permitted to forensically examined it to find out who really did that. Then there's been the attempt to say that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks in leaking the John Podesta emails. None of that was true, the Democrats and the media and the left were all part of a giant cabal? To prevent Donald Trump from being elected and get him out of office after he was and the Mueller investigation is a cover up of all of that. It is designed to make sure that there is not an investigation of Hillary Komi exonerated her acting as a Torney general on July fifth two thousand sixteen exonerated her from the Email crimes Email server crimes. And. The solution to this. Of course, the recourse, this is Trump, but his attorney general had been recused or had recused himself from anything to do with this. So you've been asking me for as long as it's been going on rush. One is Trump gonna what are we going to investigate what the Clintons? I don't know. I wish I had an answer for you. I wish such an investigation taking place. Upholder? I'm sorry. Jeff Sessions, supposedly hired somebody to be looking into a bunch of stuff along with the various inspectors general. But nothing has come of it precisely because the Muller investigation is so big. So I'm never in. So I'm the president that it obscures and covers up virtually anything else. And in fact, prevents anything else from happening and the Mueller investigation has been sanctified as legitimate from day one, even though it hasn't been not even you cannot have a special council convened without a crime. And there has never been a crime specified. That's another reason why it was converted to counter Intel investigation because theoretically, you can find all kinds of crimes in a counter intelligence investigation. So you're looking for the crime they start with the premise that was faulty in Lyon filled with lies that Trump colluded with Russia. So the audience the American people think there's a crime that Muller is investigating, but more importantly, so does every damn democrat in this country never stupid leftist thinks there's a crime. Because this hawks has been run on everybody. You've got democrat voters from the top to the bottom of that list of people from the rich to the poor and everybody in between who think and you can't really blame them. If all they do is, listen and watch the mainstream media. In fact, most of them are probably grown impatient. Waiting for Muller because they think Trump colluding has been a slam dunk. They've heard it on TV. They've seen it on TV. They've heard all this Wednesday gonna report. They were hoping it would be before the election. There wasn't anything. Of course. So now, they've got to do another rain dance and a little bit of a cover up. To cover up. The fact that Muller doesn't have anything. Muller was never gonna get anything because there was never going to get. So Muller finds a bunch of process crimes creates a bunch of process crimes in the process of running this this this follow hoax investigation. And so he's got legitimate people going to jail Manafort. And now Cohen. Two of the most ancillary irrelevant had nothing to do with anything people. Regarding the original premise, the Russians colluding with Trump to steal the election. So all these people that have been hoaxed have now been primed with the highest of expectations. That Trump is going to jail. This is the Pitta me of treasonous espionage. What Trump's been accused of? And it's been two solid years every day multiple stories newspapers cable news. Now, it's beginning to trickle out. Hey, don't get your hopes up high could be anti-climatic Jonathan Karl ABC says and not in a tweet. He said it on TV yesterday. With George Steffi Stephanopoulos. Yeah. I'm hearing from people there could be an climatic meeting giant letdown. Carl Bernstein acknowledging the rumor I heard last week is true that what they're gonna do is report that Trump is an imbecile incompetent has no business. Living working in Washington. No business being elected be such a dupe. Such a rube such an incompetent such an idiot that Trump's very presence allowed the Russians to take every opportunity wanted to corrupt America. That's going to be the extent of it. Trump didn't do anything. But just the fact that he was there made it easier for the Russians than they've ever had it. And as I said, you can't say it didn't work. The Democrats won the house. Trump's approval numbers are teetering. They're going up and down. Depending on what poll you look at anybody. Make a brief timeout. There's other things happening out there as as I said, the border wall fight the government shutdown Democrats in mass down in Puerto Rico and having a big party on the beach. While all of this is going on a question asks itself. You're the American people. You are an American person. And you're watching it on the one hand you see Donald Trump. Arguably. In town working trying to solve a serious problem of an open border. And the next picture. You see is that the Democrats on the beach in Puerto Rico? What reaction do you have to this? You're an average American. Why what what's your reaction? Because you're totally everyday Trump's an idiot and a buffoon and he's a lying sack. A you know what? And the Democrats are the ones that care so much about everybody and everything the Democrats care about love and compassion, civil rights, human rights and all of this. And yet the Democrats appear on the interest in in even dealing with this problem. And yet Trump cancels his vacation stays in Washington. Does everything he can to try to fix the problem? In a sane world. Democrats would have stepped in it big time here. But the Democrats are never gonna think they step in it big time because of the cover that the media provides, but we'll get into further this further. Details of this as the program unfolds another obscene profit here,.
