Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims
"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.

U.S. Justice Department investigating more than 170 people over Washington, DC riots
"Six days after the violent attack on the us capital law enforcement finally help the first federal press briefing about what happened. That is an acting attorney. General united states the podium or the director of the fbi not just the local guys acting us attorney the district kumble columbia and the assistant director in charge of the fbi. Washington field office to talk to the country on camera for the first time about the attempted insurrection against the us government at the capitol. And what they are doing to bring the rioters to justice. We have already opened one hundred and seventy more than one hundred seventy subject files meaning. These individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes on the capitol grounds inside and outside so of those one hundred and seventy cases that have already been opened in. I anticipate that's going to grow to the hundreds in the next coming weeks we've already charged over seventy cases just yesterday. Our office organizers strikeforce of very senior national security prosecutors and public corruption prosecutors. they're only marching. Orders from me are to build seditious and charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the capital some encouraging actions. There is still feels like things are not quite moving that quickly given the scope and stakes of what is at issue here and more importantly the impending threat of further armed assault politicos national security correspondent in touch with virtual joins. Me now natasha. I what what did you. What was your takeaway from the briefing today. Well it was clear that the fbi first of all was trying to do some cleanup on its own behalf. So the fbi official their emphasized that the warnings that they received were in fact shared with their state and local partners so they did share them with local law enforcement officials according to official. And that was i. Think an attempt to say look. We did our part of the job and it was up to say capital. Police are the members of the joint terrorism task force in washington. Dc to kind of put together. The security measures that were necessary in order to respond to the kind of violence threats and intelligence that they were that they were receiving. So i think this was part of what we've seen in the last week as a continuation of the fbi's attempt to say we did our job. Now the rest is up to you and then with regard to the attorney's office which michael sherwin was talking about. They want to say look. We are taking this seriously with regards to pursuing further charges. But take aways obviously is. We're not seeing the fbi director on stage not seeing briefings directly from the head of the fbi and from senior officials who might indicate to the rest of the country and to potential violent rioters. Who might come back to the capital that this is something that has gone to the highest highest levels of government that will not be tolerated. And i think that that is something that is also concerning some folks tonight. I mean it's a week after it happened six days and no i mean i don't know who runs the h s. Now chad wolf gone. Lord knows who's running that place. Fbi director chris. Wray the acting attorney. General jeffrey rosen image. Just it is shocking to me shocking. Inexcusable that we have not had a briefing. It's remarkable and national security officials who have spoken to have also said. Look you know one of the reasons why we might not be. Seeing them is because they might be afraid that they could get fired. You know in the week. That's left of this administration that speaking truth about this and the reasons why it was incited the realities of why these protesters came in and the capital would force them to lose their jobs and that you know take it at face value. Which is that. The president has never accepted his own officials. Speaking the truth about and and speaking In criticizing him anyway. So i think that's part of it.

OxiContin Maker To Pay Out Billions In Civil, Criminal Penalties
"The makers of oxycontin one of the drugs blame for sending off the OPIOID crisis will plead guilty to federal criminal charges. The Justice Department announced those charges against Purdue Pharma yesterday as part of an eight billion dollar settlement NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man is with US Brian Good Morning. Steve, how's a settlement? GonNa work. Yeah. So if it's approved by a federal bankruptcy judge, Steve The purdue Pharma will admit to the three felony charges including a charge that they misled doctors about the safety of medications like Oxycontin, over time, then the company would pay out billions of dollars in civil and criminal penalties, Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general who outlined the agreement yesterday says the sackler family would also be forced to give up control of their company. Instead of being the owners of a major pharmaceutical company, they will have no stake in that company. Now that sounds like a lot but critics are pointing to the fact that Purdue Pharma was already in big trouble facing bankruptcy struggling to hold onto employees and flooded with thousands of lawsuits tied to the improper marketing of opioids, and despite all that under this deal does federal deal the sackler walk away with most of their personal fortunes intact by some estimates there worth as much as ten billion dollars because of OPIOID prophets, they'll pay a fraction of that in penalties only about two hundred, twenty, five, million dollars out of their own pockets and Steve. There are no criminal charges against them the sackler. Admit to know personal wrongdoing. Well, how do prosecutors explain the deal would include no criminal charges and the sackler not entirely but mostly giving up a pile of liabilities rather than a penalty they would really feel. Deputy. Attorney General. Rosen was asked about this yesterday and he says these penalties go as far as the government can right now holding purdue and the sackler accountable. There is no law that says if you've done something wrong, we should just simply strip somebody of all their assets in existence that's not how it works. It has to be that we are looking at specific ex wrongdoing civilly or criminally, and then having a proportionate response but a lot of people including more than two dozen state attorneys, general dozens of members of Congress advocates for people suffering from addiction. They all say, this isn't proportionate response. They say members of the sackler family played a personal role pushing the prescription opioid boom developing these illegal and deceptive marketing practices that made purdue. Pharma. So profitable the Tissue James is New York State Attorney General, and she's suing members of the. Sackler family, her team tracked hundreds of millions of dollars in opioid prophets that the sackler sent to offshore accounts. She told. NPR. This justice department deal doesn't go nearly far enough doesn't account the hundreds of thousands of deaths of millions of addictions caused by produce farmer in the sackler family all of destruction that they have caused it basically allows billionaires to keep their billions without any accounting for how much a really made James says her state probe of the sackler family will continue. Meanwhile, there's one more detailed, the settlement that sparking. Anger, it turns out purdue. Pharma doesn't actually have enough money left to pay out the billions of dollars agreed to in this settlement. So the plan is for the government to reorganize Purdue Pharma into what's known as a public benefit company that means prophets from future sales of opioids like oxycontin would be used to pay for drug treatment and rehabilitation programs around the country Greg mcneal lives in. Ohio. One of the states hit hardest by the OPIOID epidemic and he lost his son Sam to an overdose five years ago. He. Says this idea of the government getting into the OPIOID business now after it's caused so much harm. He says it just feels wrong it. It just seems ill advised having the government entered into that business. Gosh. There's something about that. That just doesn't doesn't add up at all. And I should say Steve Twenty five state attorneys general agree they signed a letter last week they send it to Attorney General William Bar arguing that this arrangement is ethically wrong and could shelter purdue Pharma and the sackler from future criminal or civil liability Brian Kennedy at least be said for the deal that there's some money here that might help people harmed by the. OPIOID. Epidemic. That will definitely that's what the Justice Department is saying. So let's take stock for a second nearly seventy two thousand people died from overdoses last year this is still ongoing. A lot of those were opioid deaths. What US attorneys say is if this deal is finalized by the bankruptcy court, it would mean extraordinary new resources for states and cities and tribal governments struggling to keep people alive. But one thing everyone agrees to here is that this problem is so big now affecting. So many Americans they say the eight billion dollars from purdue, Pharma is really just a drop in the bucket.

Trump's national emergency faces legal pushback
"February the Trump administration planning to cancel nine hundred twenty nine million in US money for California's beleaguered high-speed rail project at once the state to return an additional two and a half billion. It's already spent the department of transportation announcing that on Tuesday. California governor Gavin Newsom says the administration's engaging in political retribution saying the president's reacting to California suing over Trump's emergency declaration to pay for a wall. Let's bring in Phil Kerpen of American commitment. President of American commitment. You can find out more in American commitment dot ORG joins us from time to time here on FM. Good morning. Phil. The Trump administration plan to cancel that nine hundred twenty nine million and order California to payback or return, anyway, the additional two and a half billion that may be spent by the way, folks, I live here in the Golden State have been following this thing since it was approved. So does the does the Trump administration have a case? Oh, absolutely. There's very broad language in the original grant agreement that gives the the federal government, the federal railway administration the authority to cancel the contract and to demand repayment, if the state has not made adequate progress language that's in the grant agreement. I think that ten years after the stimulus money was approved. It's pretty clear to everyone that they have not made out of quick progress, including the governor himself who very pointedly said in his state of the state address that the project would never be completed as it was originally vision. Then he went on to say, well, you know, we're going to complete this one little segment from the Bakersfield because hey, we wouldn't want to give all that money back to Donald Trump's federal government. But you know, that is too clever by half. I mean, he's admitting that the project that was approved. And that was the reason the grant was thin. We'll never actually be completed and yet he wants to sort of, you know, upgrade an existing relatively. Short segment of Amtrak rail will have very limited ridership and say, hey, good enough. We're keeping the federal money. I it doesn't work that way. And I think the president is absolutely right. And the secretary of transportation, Elaine Chao in the railway administrator, I think they're all absolutely right out to take this action. And I certainly think they're on very firm ground did not spending more money. And you know, my read of the grant agreement indicates that they can demand the full amount back. And of course, you know, we'll see how the lawyers work all that out. But I I don't think it's laughable to suggest that this is a retaliation for the national emergency lawsuit for two reasons. First of all the state of the state address by the governor set this in motion, and there was immediate reaction from the White House and the department of transportation before the national emergency declaration was even made and second everybody knew California and all the other liberal states with over the national emergency declaration. Surprise anyone the president talked about it? His announcement press conference. He said, of course, they'll they'll find a way to get this into the ninth, circuit the way, they always do that that wasn't a surprise that was totally anticipated. Well, do you think he has the case against these states? On the national emergency declaration. Yep. Oh, I don't know. I think that it unlikely that they'll be able to convince the judge to that the question of whether an emergency exists is a justifiable. That'll probably be considered a non-justiciable political question on the executive branch on that point of the litigation will turn on the much more difficult question, whether having invoked on national emergency, the president, and Ben lawfully has the ability to transfer those funds, but one of the points that I think is very little noticed about the the border wall issue is the president actually tapped three sources of funding and two of them do not depend on the number evacuation. And so even if the these are successful, they might only knockout portion of the eight billion dollars, and that that I think was done deliberately by the administration using several different legal rationale, President Trump. Does he intends to nominate Jeffrey Rosen longtime litigator and deputy transportation secretary to replace rod Rosenstein as deputy AG. What do you know about Rosen is this a good choice? I really like it. I'm getting some pushback and criticism on Twitter from people who say, hey, it's another Washington insider, this is terrible that kind of thing. But I think that it's a very very difficult thing to wrestle federal bureaucracy and change direction like trying to steer and aircraft carrier. And it's an awfully difficult thing to do if you don't have experience, and you haven't successfully done it. And you know, Jeff rose and was in the IRA did a lot of budgeting and regulatory work during the Bush administration. And of course, he has tremendous private sector experience as a as a lawyer as well, but when he came into his current job at the department of transportation, and he's the deputy secretary, which is sort of the CEO of the department. He's got fifty thousand employees there, and basically any measures the department of transportation has been number one in deregulation under all of their deregulatory executive orders of President Trump. And you know, if you can rank. Angle the department of transportation vast bureaucracy and actually get those bureaucrats to do. Good deregulatory pro-gross things. You know, you've got a better chance than most people being able to do the same thing at DOJ. I'm not saying he can cause I don't know if Jay bureaucracy can be wrangled by anyone. But I think he's got a much better chance of somebody coming in from outside of Washington or somebody who hasn't had a proven ability of doing something like that as he's done a DOT. So I like it. I think it's very good back. Phil Kerpen joins us from time to time here on A F N, president of American commitment. You can find out more at American commitment

You've had this extrordinary record of covering my goodness, twenty supreme court confirmation hearings. What is your performance review of judge Brett cavenaugh and how does he compare it to the previous nominees that you've seen. Well, I think that chief Justice, John Roberts probably retired, the trophy for performance in terms of saying, really as little as possible, but doing it incredibly charmingly and with great wit he was actually quite funny and they were not lines that he could planned in advance because they often came in response to things that he was asked by often by Democrats. The second might be Elena Kagan, who was all similarly, witty and said, very little Justice. David suitor was a terrific witness, very dry, but also fascinating. And at one point where he talked about his own conversations about Rovers is Wade and abortion when he was in law school was pretty riveting. Again. When you couldn't really tell anything from what he said, this nominee fall somewhere in the middle, of course, nominees in in the since about two thousand have said less and less. I would say before then certainly nominees declined to talk about many subjects, but they also engaged with the senators about many subjects that seemed to end in the early two, thousands and has persisted ever since Fatemi. Thank you so much for that Neil. You haven't quite covered twenty, but you've seen a lot of supreme court confirmation hearings. What is your performance review of?

I did sit through both of those hearings and they were extrordinary in their sense of humor wit into -bility to evade. Virtually any question, I guess the opposite of that the polar opposite is the board hearing. On the other side in nineteen eighty-seven where you had a nominee who was undoubtedly brilliant..
