Protection of Personal Data in Blockchain Technology

"Zor. Res- asks what do you think about. Privacy designed blockchain so. It's kind of interesting because these blockchain's are sort of under attack. I guess you could say from regulation right now. A melted mirrors actually talked about this in the episode that he did with her and lynn alton Where she said that. That's kind of the main thing she'll be looking out for twenty twenty one and i think You know we at this moment that i'm recording this. We only have rumors about what type of regulation it was that Treasury secretary steve mnuchin wanted to put on crypto right. Now because i think actually you privacy coins were in the crosshairs and this was something night. Jessie liu who came on unconfirmed talked about She was the what was it. Former attorney for dc. She's prosecuted a ton of cases are around some of the biggest ones involving illegal. Use bitcoin and via actor state actors like north korea or by the child porn website in in korea. Welcome to video. And and some of the other big criminals like terrorists and stuff and weight point. Is she highlighted by a something that she was noticing in. I can't remember it was the dot enforcement framework actually and I do think you know this is going to be something that comes up again because brian brooks the action control of the currency. Also kind of you know. When i asked him about what how he thought the. Us might regulate privacy. He said oh well you know the. Us is different from other countries because we're We're the victims of terrorism or or were subject to terrorism or something like that and he said that he thought people would be willing to make a trade off for that. Which i thought was very interesting. A really was curious to know what the crypt communities reaction was to that comment. But yeah so. I think we're going to see that kind of come up as a battle and i actually. I would be surprised. If in the end there wasn't some way to have Blockchain side feature privacy prominently because in a way. I can't imagine the technology really taking off in all the ways that it could take off if there wasn't such a feature and you even see that like in a forthcoming episode. I have unconfirmed. It's a panel discussion but there is somebody from the federal reserve who talks about building systems for central bank digital currencies. Who says you know flat out like you can't design these systems unless you have privacy you as a consideration from the beginning he said it cannot be an afterthought and and he's talking about for central bank digital currency so. I really do think that you'd at least some of these vaccines will have to feature it prominently and i. I don't think that we're going to end up with blockchain set it at all. I would be surprised on a long enough time scale. I do think in the in the beginning. There might be a bit of a battle. But i think after we got real adoption then i would be very surprised if we don't start to see more privacy

"Everyone redlining if you remember was the term where banks took hold neighborhoods and said people in these neighborhoods of poor. They're not going to be able to pay off their mortgages. Tell them you're salesman. Don't go into those areas and then Congress got involved as local elected officials as well and said Oh. That's not fair. These people should be able to get credit and once you started pushing in that direction. Bank started making more and more loans where the credit of the person buying. The house wasn't as good as you would like Bloomberg's presidential k. Let me stop and hold on by BUBBA. Sorry I cut it there so so that was the the audio from two thousand eight. This was less than a month. After everything crashed. That was the end of August. This was September and Michael Bloomberg was saying that the he he blaming the whole crisis of the crash on the end of red lining when they could no longer discriminate. Obviously You heard Me Brzezinski. Come in here. I can't read it with a straight face. She did this. She gives the Bloomberg campaigns. Excuse for the comment. Bloomberg's presidential campaign has refuted the context of the conversation claiming that he listened stead quotes saying that something bad. The financial crisis followed something. Good which is the fight against redlining that he was part of Kashmir the campaign said that Bloomberg was attacking predatory lending opposite world. God can you imagine if he's the nominee and we get to at least self-proclaimed billionaires? I know he is Donald Trump not so sure but to lie prodigiously. Go figure more and Michael Bloomberg coming up in a few minutes. But there's more news to get to yesterday. I know look. We all tuned out of C. Span once the impeachment trial ended but their stuff going on and perhaps yesterday would have been a good day to watch because the Senate Judiciary Committee had Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in the hot seat. He was grilled by Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon about why the Treasury Department. This just happened in the last day or two. The Treasury Department gave Senate Republicans pretentiously damaging financial information related to Joe Biden on hunter immediately. When they ask for it but they've blocked democratic requests for trump's tax returns for oh. I don't know it seems like three years now. I want to start with what I think is a cleared double standard with respect to responding to requests on Congressional oversight. The request from the Democratic Chair with a firm legal basis yep was met with nothing but legal foot-dragging the request that came from the Republican chairs got VIP treatment. They got no response out the door in a flash so it looks to me like there's a double standard eight you all are tipping the scales of Congressional oversight. What am I missing Mister Secretary the house? Disclosure of tax returns is subject to protection twenty-six. Usc Sixty one zero three on the advice of counsel As we've documented we had significant concerns. That's very different than I believe what? You're referring to as SARS requests. Which on a bipartisan basis. We have responded to thousands of SARS requests to the committees from both Republicans and Democrats on an equal basis. So as we said Treasury does not process Greg Carey York Stonewalling Party about stonewalling there. S really not at all. You got to committee chairs. One gets no response with legal authority. That's the Democrat. The Republican gets a quick response. And that's how it works or doesn't work as case is but wait. There's more senator. Sherrod Brown is also on the Senate Judiciary Committee and he attempted Mnuchin to get Mnuchin to explain why the nomination of former US attorney Jesse Lou to a Treasury Department post was abruptly pulled on Tuesday just two days before she was scheduled to testify before the Senate got word last night. Jessie Liu whom we're going to do a hearing in banking for nomination she was I'm inexplicably and suddenly withdrawn by the nomination by the president. Last night well think under president was withdrawing in undersecretary of your department. I believe it was two days ago days ago. Can you tell me why are nomination was withdrawn? Of course not. I think you know. She's not a power at the president's direction and we don't comment when nomination as a matter of policy combinations are withdrawn which happened for a variety of different different administration. So you don't have any knowledge or knowledge of why she was withdrawn again. What I've said is is a is a matter not going to give you a second chance. Some secretary prior to position this. Maybe you don't I don't know was the US she was us. Attorney for the district issues involved in the cases of three of Mr Trump's convicted political district. Kids Mr Stone. Mr Flynn absent any plausible explanation for his withdrawal this nomination even though you claim. I hope you know you're more or less under oath. You claim to have known it for another stop on the president's personal retribution tour an attempt to ensure that she did not come before the Banking Committee tomorrow to ensure to TNT. Answer under oath questions about those prosecutorial decisions when Prosecutors Scaling Back Sentencing Recommendations of Mr. Flynn was senior. Doj official suddenly intervening yesterday to reverse in make more lenient. The sentencing recommendation of career. Prosecutors for them withdrew. One of them actually resigned. It tells us a lot of retribution is PR tour for the White House's personal retribution. Tour. The president's engaged in started with with the prayer breakfast of all places and then then the East Room and then as a tax and colonel mocking his accent. The unannounced the surprise unexplored unexplained withdrawal. Jessie Liu and I would hope you would give an explanation. Yeah that's that's the one that the counter the one that everyone assumes that is the president is she's part of the president's personal retribution tour so I'm hopeful that it even this hearing or later you will help us and tell us the real reason. Yeah right but don't hold your breath part of the president's personal retribution tour. Yup and so. What did Jessie Liu today? She said take this job and shove it she resigned. She said really your nominate me for this thing. Two days before my confirmation hearing you withdraw the nomination. I quit good for her following the four prosecutors who quit. It's a trend. I see a trend. In another sign of the growing financial crisis in print. Journalism mcclatchy filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection. In case you don't know mcclatchy. They own about thirty newspapers across the country including Miami Herald. This is a big deal. Mcclatchy as opposed to some of the other so called you know Newspaper companies a is actually a good journalistic endeavor. And so this is. This is disturbing. That's not good news. Hey there's an update on Jim Jordan situation. A former captain of the Ohio State University wrestling team told members of the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee that Congressman Jim Jordan was not only aware of allegations of sexual abuse that took place at the university in the nineteen eighties and nineties but that he begged others to cover up his involvement. The man the former captain who was speaking. There's audio out there. I don't have it. I didn't pull it because it was just long and I could have tightened it up a little bit. But he said Jordan cried on the phone with him begging him to basically have as back. Hey this is good news. The House gave the era temporary new lease on life by voting to remove a nineteen eighty two deadline for ratification by the states. The approval pushes the issue to the Republican controlled Senate where removing the deadline is unlikely to find support. But the Virginia General Assembly last month became the thirty eighth state to ratify the equal rights amendment. That's the threshold needed for a proposed amendment to be added to the constitution. So we should be there if we had a Democrat in the White House if we had a Democrat control of the Senate. Hey women fellow women we'd be equal in the eyes of the law. What a concept. What a concept K. One other thing before we get Howie Klein on the line. Because I know I bitch with how it seems every week about the media bias against Bernie Sanders. But it's really getting out of control. I played for you some of Chuck. Todd's nonsense yesterday. I won't burn with it again but I'm gonNA play for you one other thing. This is Jim Messina now the MSNBC has you know is well has been featuring not only Jim Sina no not Kenny. Loggins but David Plov the architects of Barack Obama's campaigns Who are both seem to be You know well I guess what what what. Obama turned out to be which is a centrist. Sorry not a progressive and so Jim Messina jumped on the Msnbc bandwagon of you know anybody but Bernie we know. Here's a few things we know. Bernie Sanders won the popular. Vote in Iowa. I mentioned this earlier in the program by six thousand votes and somehow in Iowa math that gave P. Buddha judge a point. One percentage point one tenth of a percentage point win over. Bernie Sanders that. That's that's creative now for you So you know. They're calling it a Buddha judge win although come on anybody else if it was if it was you know Joe Biden who got Bernie Sanders numbers. They wouldn't be calling it a Buddha judge win. Just saying and then Bernie wins in New Hampshire and despite what chuck towed says a win is a win. He said at the other day like they're gonNA say a win is a win. How do you know how how ridiculous of them to claim a win is a win? Because you know in this case it's Bernie Sanders so a win campy a win and then they get Jim Messina on the air. Who SAYS FORGET BERNIE? This was a stellar night for Amy Klobuchar. Because she came in third and actually the guy who wasn't even on the ballot at all Michael Bloomberg he was the real winner of the night. I couldn't make this stuff up. I try is a very big deal. That turnout is higher than two thousand eight. That shows you a base and a party that has united very excited and the second number of that. I think people need to watch you. Know over fifty. Five percent of voters voted for a moderate candidate. They said the most important issues. Who can beat Donald Trump and that? L- you're looking at the big number. The big winner last night could be mayor Bloomberg because he gets ready for battleship Bloomberg in this unbelievable spending. That's about to come our way. He's sitting back here ready to make a case that he's the best candidate so we are in early days And it's going to be very interesting. Moving forward unbelievable but it's totally believable. If you watch. Msnbc that's what you get. By and large there are few honest brokers on that channel. I think Chris Hayes is one I actually think Katie Tours one. I used to think Allie vel. She was one but boy. Did I get into a twitter fight with him this past weekend because his show was all go? Go Pete. Go go anyone but Bernie. It's really it's journalistic. Malpractice is what it is. So allie vel. She is not on my respected journalists. Lists anymore not even close. And that's a shame. I used to like him but there was one other thing I wanted to tell you about before we get Howie Klein on the line and I can't think of what it is so well. I'm it'll come to me when you always here so I'll tell you what. Let's not wait any longer. Let's go ahead and start mixing up those dirty. Debbie's are you.

Treasury gave Senate Republicans potentially damaging financial information related to former vice president. Joe Biden Son Hunter but blocked request from Democrats for Donald Trump's tax returns.

Liu who is for whom with whom we're going to do a hearing in banking for her nomination She was inexplicably suddenly withdrawn by the nomination by the president last night. When did you learn? The president was withdrawing the under secretary of your department. I I believe it was Two days ago two days ago can you tell me why are nomination was withdrawn? I think you know. Nominations are at the president's direction and we don't comment when nominations as a matter of policy when combinations are withdrawn which happened for variety of different reasons at different times. Why that's done so you don't have any now any opinion or knowledge of why she was withdrawn again. What I've said is as a matter of policy. It's not going to give you a second chance and secretary prior to position. You may know this. Maybe I don't know was the US she was US attorney for the District of Columbia. She was involved in the cases of three of Mr Trump's convicted political operatives. Mr Gates Mr Stone. Mr Flynn absent any plausible explanation for his withdrawal this nomination even though you claim. I hope you know you're more or less under oath. The you you claim to have known it for two days.

I work a lot with the Ukrainian community and I'm proud that so many Ukrainians have called America home leaving the Soviet regime and he was serving his country. The president box him. The the unannounced surprise unexplored unexplained withdrawal. Jessie Liu and I would hope you would give an explanation. That's that's the one that the counter to the one that everyone assumes and that is that the president is. She's part of the president's personal retribution tour so I'm hopeful that it even riskier later you will help us in tolls the real reason well speaking of the Senate. They're set to pass a bipartisan resolution to block Donald Trump's ability to take military action against Iran on Thursday after voting fifty one to forty five with eight Republicans joining with the Democrats on Wednesday to bring the measure to the floor.

"Many people were hurt? Their lives were destroyed and nothing happened with all the people that did it. which is scam? Wiz Call Me. Why where's calling? What's happening to became? So when you hear that from the president of the United States what goes through your mind well first of all. It's it's disgusting and shocking. As many times as it happens you'd never really get over that but I think it's important to take it out of the the context of just me and understand that here again. You have the president casting aspersions and conclusions about people who have never even been charged with a crime. Myself Breath Jim. Komi anyone else from that group that we work with at the FBI. He routinely refers to people as corrupt and having committed crimes when that could not not be further from the truth and again wolf. I think he does this because he's trying to plant that thought in people's minds says it enough times he thinks people believe the president also.

Do you see that as punishment for her for for this woman. Jessie Liu for not intervening in the Roger Stone case the way he would've wanted well I don't know why Ms Liu's nomination was for Treasury senior officials at the Treasury Department but it certainly could be that this is yet another example of the president conveying his displeasure with those folks who don't execute his will who don't bend to his will and deliver the results that he seeks Thanks very much for joining us.

O. D. President trump is praising the justice assist department for intervening in the case of his political ally. Roger Stone and ramping up pressure on the department to go after his political enemies. Let's bring in our analysts to discuss this the pressure three blatant on the Justice Department. Right now what does it say to you Gloria. Well I think the Justice Department's under assault from within from within within its own administration. I'm from the Attorney General himself. The President President United States who uses twitter to Denounce Department of Justice decision and then he gets exactly what he wants and you have to ask yourself the question about. What does that mean to all the people who are left serving in the Department of Justice? You you know. Sometimes mass resignations as we saw for them Can can really make a point to to outsiders into the American Eric in people that something is not right. That doesn't happen every day. In fact it hardly ever happens and you have to stop and take notice and ask ask why. What are the consequences? David Gregory of the president's actions. Well I mean I think the immediate is a loss of confidence in the Justice Department. More of a confirmation formation that the president got what he wanted you know he wanted his Roy Cohn he wanted a reliable personal attorney. Who would be attorney general United States? That's not how it's supposed to work and one of the things that I'm looking for. I think it's very significant that these line prosecutors in this particular case resigned but what about the US attorneys around the country. They are presiding over these districts districts. They are political appointees in most cases. They're no longer a Obama. Appointees now they're trump appointees do they not have a fidelity to how the justice this department auto work. ARE THEY GONNA stand up and say something or are they gonna be you know more like Republican senators ripple. You're with us. As well. How Republicans you know especially those fifty two republicans that voted to acquit the president and the Senate impeachment trial? How are they reacting to all of this? They have a lot of practice for the last several months in in terms of taking something that the president did and figuring out ways to justify or explain it or hide from it and that seems to be doing today. They're saying you know the president wasn't actually really involved in this. He didn't publicly or privately. Talk to the Justice Department in instructive to do this. And it's very similar to what we saw during impeachment. Republicans looking for an out looking for ways to defend the president looking for ways to say that they didn't have enough information and there's no smoking gun unless the person comes out and says I instructed structed my Justice Department to take it easy on Roger Stone. Then they're gonNA find a way to defend him and say they don't have twitter over there at the Justice Department. They're not up to date their only only sixty five million or so followers that he has. The president tweeted this last night. David axelrod. Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Bar for taking charge of a case. That was totally totally out of control. You had a chance to sit down with the house. Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. And you got his response. Let me play when when I look at tweets like that And consider that this intervention In the work of the Department of Justice this at three in a direct attack on our rule of law and on the Post Watergate reforms that tried to build a wall between the White House and the Justice Department. I'm struck by the fact that it's all out in the open but the fact that this has been done in the open In a way makes it more insidious because it is normalizing leising this attack on the independence or justice system. So what what do you make his point that this is all being done in the open. Listen I think it's it's really important and it's not not just here but the president's done this in so many ways blanket lead defying Congress and their oversight responsibilities. He's normalizing that behavior behavior look You know going after the media in the way that he does normalizes that in our politics dealing with foreign leaders as he did with the president of Ukraine Ukraine and then insisting that it was a perfect call this is this is the the insidious thing is the sort of sundering of these pillars of a a working democracy and it's deeply deeply concerning and he does it again and again and part of the problem with being out in the open like Congressman Schiff is saying. Is that you put this in the realm of politics. Where really Shrek because politically speaking? What nobody's going to impeach the president again right now? We're in an election year. That didn't Muller didn't the result in anything impeachment resulted in acquittal but it really does come down to Republicans who can say. Look we appreciate this president for reasons one through ten. But shouldn't you still be able to have oversight ability over how he's conducted his affairs he's attacks on the judiciary by the way which have been rebuked by the chief justice of the United States. Here's another instance of it again today. Attacking the district judge during during the Malla report. Question that Bob Muller had to deal with time and time again was can you obstruct Justice Zim Public and the answer was yeah. I guess I guess you can. Although they're not going to indict a sitting a sitting president we know that but it was very clear that that was what what the president was doing to people who were going to testify against him glory. I I agree with what you said at the outset about these. These resignations sending a strong on signal. But what's frightening is we're seeing. These throughout the government was in the national security Area and in the Justice Department sensitive incident sensitive areas where we're losing some of the best people and what are the implications of that he is. He is turning the justice system into that which he accuses us as being which is highly politicized he says these four or federal prosecutors. WHO reside should go back to school? That's what he said about intelligence community leaders in the past as well. Aren't there'd be a lot more right after this everyone Barbara McDonald here hosted the brand a new podcast from h down the hill the Delphi murders in February of two thousand seventeen Abigail Williams and liberty. German went for a hike on a warm. I'm day in Delphi. Indiana and vanished nearly twenty four hours later. Their bodies are found in the woods. Police began working crime scene scene.

"Else the Justice Department's overruling overruling of the prosecution's recommended seven to nine year sentence for Roger Stone after the president called it. A miscarriage of justice left Republican lawmakers only the criticizing his active twitter habit. President's going to tweet and I don't think it had anything to do with this. Meanwhile Democrats are outraged outraged accusing Attorney General Bill Barr of destroying the independence of the Justice Department to do the president's bidding by intervening to try to get the sentence reduced adduced for Roger Stone. Trump's longtime adviser and friend a thought given added fuel by the president's congratulatory tweet to bar today for taking in charge of a case. That was totally out of control. What is more swampy? What is more feted? What is more stinking than the most powerful person in the country literally changing the rules to benefit a crony guilty of breaking the law? Democrats calls reignited for Bar to step down in his actions investigated what I think we're seeing is an unprecedented assault. Upon the independence of our Justice Department after the Justice Department revise the sentencing recommendation made by four career prosecutors and stones case fall four of them withdrew in quick succession. A mass protest by legal team fit included to prosecutors from Robert Muller's investigation which led to stone. Being convicted on seven charges. Last last year is the I guess the same people that put everybody through hell and I think it's a disgrace and we just learned today. That Roger Stone made a request for a new trial and was denied by the judge. He'd argued that one of his jurors was biased. Now that Same Judge Ajay. Amy Berman Jackson. We'll have the final say in what sentence Roger Stone finally gets Jake. We'll see if she listens to the Justice Department that sentencing set for February Twentieth Twentieth. which is next Thursday? Jake all right mark. Thanks so much Paul Begala. Let's start with you just because I'm trying to imagine Bill Clinton doing this Any of this. If you had known that you could get away with this. It's still wrong. This is how far we've come if I wanted the attorney. General Janet Reno in those days to come to a press conference. I didn't call the Justice Department. I went to the White House counsel's office and I said Chuck. Ruff will you MM. Please call the attorney general however here ten and Thursday for press comes with the president. That's House finding the secretary. I called him but we were so careful. And every pro the Bush administration saying that everybody all the time but you. I'm saying we're careful. We had ironclad rules right there that you cannot contact the main. Just that wasn't even even even if he says he didn't call he tweeted. He's corrupted them and politicized them in a way that sadly it's GonNa take a long time to recover. I think people's faith in the Justice Department is really going to be shaken America. Since president trump was acquitted a week ago one one week ago just to be clear one week ago he removed lieutenant. Colonel Alexander Van Manana twin brother from the NFC. He removed a fired ambassador. Gordon Silane. He attacked senators who voted to convict them including Mitt Romney attack the the faith of Romney. Nancy Pelosi he attacked the judge in the Roger Stone case attack the sentencing proposal. The prosecutors in the Rogers case withdrew the nomination of Jessie Liu. So Stones Prosecution. She was up for Treasury Department. Job What do you think has learned lessons. I don't think he learned. I don't think he learns the lessons. That would hope he would learn. It's just not in the cards and here we are on the other hand. It was arguably one of the better weeks of his presidency last week and that is what I think. Democrats must contend with. Is that the unique nature of this candidate to take all of that on on and for his approval not to really fall off perhaps even to increase for the economy economic numbers to be this good and for people in the Gallup poll to say at six fifty nine sixty percent. They're doing better than they were a year ago. That is a juggernaut. You have to contend with because this stuff doesn't actually work against him partly because every day it's a new outrage and a new investigation from Democrats crats and people must be forgiven for having limited bandwidth for them. It does work against him to a degree that he has. This incredible economy going form and yet disapproval is always over fifty percents. But he's he floats right along with this. We're at a moment where Democrats need to agree with. You sees this and make this election about morals and and values and why it matters while the president is doing this. He is not doing infrastructure. We've been waiting for that for three or four years. He is not actually increase making the cost of prescription drugs lower. He's not actually making your healthcare costs. Lower I mean you have to the problem that I think we have is. We have to tie it into very real consequences. This is for the American people I think. A lot of people not in Washington look at Donald Trump and say oh the people in Washington or mad about something he did good and that is the fundamental truth of his coalition and it is the fundamental truth of how Washington these days when there is outrage by the bureaucrats crats and the politicians and the media. Then somebody's doing something right. Because that's what I voted against in two thousand sixteen doesn't make all the tweets. Ripe make all the decisions right doesn't make the president infallible but is a fundamental political. Fact in to your point I think that's exactly why he is floating along because the outrage machine drives that attitude but it's why camera Catherine Right. The Democrats have to make it about the voters not about trump not about Roger Stone. Who is a convicted felon voters? The most important thing the election about two hundred thirty days away most important important thing that happened this week is Donald Trump released a budget. That cuts Medicare cuts Medicaid. Last year's budget cut social security every Democrat every day they should sit there watch five minutes every five minutes six. Oh by the way. Donald Trump wants to cut medicare medicaid social security. Because see that's about. The voters lives not about Roger Stone with a he goes they do that or are they. Just talk about Roger Stone GonNa Listen to me. They do everything I say. Is he making it tougher for people like Susan Collins and Martha mcsally in Cory Gardner who are running for re election. I'm sure I mean I mean because they would rather be talking about those kitchen table issues. That Paul just rattled off but to the extent. You're answering questions about that. You're not rolling. I mean like You know some of these senators right now are working on prescription drug bill. They are working on something on surprise medical billing and other issues. But if you're answering questions in the hallway about Roger Stone you're not talking about allege slut those people cannot win without a consolidated enthused trump basically. That's sort of an auto and stick around got more to talk about living in a post impeachment world what can Democrats. It's due to get a Republican to stand up trump if anything. We'll discuss that next. Everyone Barbara McDonald here. You're hosted the brand new podcast from H. L.

"Entered his apartment on the fourth floor thinking it was hers on the third floor. thought her neighbor Botham gene was an intruder. He's sitting there watching TV and she fatally shot him with peace and she'd she's been out on on three hundred thousand dollars bail now. She's facing maximum life in prison. The jury's job was to decide whether she acted reasonably when she used deadly force and if the prosecution had proved beyond a reasonable doubt that she intentionally killed gene or if she should face a lesser charge like manslaughter like if they truly believed it was an accident so that's crazy that like I I remember this case coming out. She walked in to what she thought was her apartment. She said she said she was exhausted. After a long day of work and shot the guy who was in there and apparently the trajectory of the bullet show that he was startled by her entry because he was apparently getting up so so this woman wandered into the wrong apartment and shot a man sitting in his living room yeah off duty cop yeah well she he was found guilty so there seems to be a little bit of justice in the world in what seems like a very unjust world right now so I wanted to share that with you all means that's a that's a a a little bit of hope in the dark in terms of US having justice system that doesn't exclusively cared away people yeah. I I agree and here's what I was going to tell you about southern district of New York what used to be known as the sovereign Southern District of New York said Monday it will participate in a lawsuit filed by trump to block the Manhattan district attorney from obtaining gaining eight years of trump's tax returns from czars. That's his accounting firm. The Southern District of Newark Civil Division chief said it would file a submission Wednesday which was a deadline given by the judge judge indicates. I thought it was October seventh but I must have been incorrect. I imagine it will be much like the trump defense which is that he cannot be criminally investigated because of the Office of Legal Counsel memo at the Department of Justice that says a president can't be indicted so we'll keep you posted on that but the the fact that Jessie Liu Southern District of New York because I used to have a saying being back in the old Miller she wrote days that the arc of justice is long but it bends towards the southern district of New York because it appeared that that's where all the cases were going in the investigation and they were doing a really good job prosecuting these cases and now starting with when you know right after bar came in and then we find out later that the southern district of New York stopped investigating the trump organization in the hush money payment scandal and then of course that's what Sivan's picked it up from the district. New York is like we're not GONNA AN- Anna Judge went if you're not gonNA. I'm GonNa Release All these warrant documents on Cohen which he did and it they were pretty damning so now southern district in York shutdown that case Sivan's picked it up and now the southern district of New York is going to join trump in trying to fight eight Sivan's in in in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office to get these tax returns so that he can continue the investigation that I think bar shut down in the Southern District Newark into those hush money payments and the trump organization. They're looking not at federal charges because they're you know Manhattan District Attorney. They're looking at you know whether they falsified business documents in the trump organization when they said they were paying. Cohen back for legal they they were paying him for legal work yeah for stormy Daniel when they were actually reimbursing him for these hush money payments that he made himself personally by taking out a second mortgage on his house poor Michael Cohen really though he's kind of a dish bag just kidding uh-huh being serious here and recently like Michael Cohen for for aligning himself with trump. I more like yeah like sad trombone. Cohen because because he's just a criminal from way back but like super white collar criminal with taxi medallions stuff and his insurance fraud and all these other things so shocked. I I know but you know. Kathy did come out. He did testify against him but then he comes out recently and says I have information on Ukraine. It's fucking essential and from prison yeah and it's like why didn't you do that in your proffer or you know when you were helping and he actually never signed a cooperation agreement with southern district of New York and so that could be why he didn't have to tell them everything but like if you're gonNA come mountain say I'm GonNa tell you everything about this corrupt president and then you leave that out it's it's or I don't know what he has on Ukraine but to leave anything out would be you disingenuous to me in my mind but you know maybe he's talked about. He's holding these things in his pocket so maybe he can when they come up. He can lower his his prison sentence. what what do you think what are your beans on. What happened here with this admiral no longer taking this case and aligning. What do you think bar did. Oh Oh I think bars. It's all bar yeah. I think it's all bar I mean he's just been traveling around the world trump's direction trying to investigate to discredit our intelligence agencies. He's now he's making the department just completely wrecked the independence and trust in the Department of Justice and therefore the entire federal justice system and now he was pushing. I think doc he was pushing to to get Andrew McCabe indicted. I think he was pushing to shut and he did shut effectively. I think shut down the case into the hush money payments it's in the southern district of New York and now he's pushing probably via trump to help defend against this they'll lose they'll lose and I wouldn't be surprised if there were some department of Justice lawyers a lot like the DOJ lawyers on the citizenship twenty twenty percents question case thing where the lawyers were like We're really sorry court we want to be candid and I was on vacation and we we conceded and now we're being told we can't concede. I think this is one of those situations and I. I'm really interested to see what the Department of Justice Lawyers do on this. They're cast only be a handful left. They're willing to do this shit and what does Jessica fans what Jesse Lou GonNa do because I've had conversation sidebar conversations with some of my former. US Attorney friends who are like I had you know I I thought Jesse. Lou was not a corrupt person so I think she you know to to have her still be there. In light of all this and a lot of people are like well well. Maybe she's staying there to protect some of these cases that means. She's corrupt you you can't do that. and it's that's corruption it and even if you're trying to do it for a good reason you publicly resign and come forward is what you have to do so. I watch keep your aunt Jessie Liu all right time for a little Schadenfreude on Friday speaking about when trump tried to add of citizenship question to the two thousand twenty cents and got his ass beat in court and had to pay two point seven million dollars to the ACLU to pay their legal fees for the New York case we found out on Monday buzzfeed news obtained documents from the Justice Department showing trump up now has to pay an additional three point nine five million to the challenges in the Maryland Cases best news now amount is expected to grow because they're still working on what trump past pay in the defendants for the defense legal fees on the west coast cases so the requirement to pay these legal by the way comes from the equal access to Justice Act that says parties who win civil cases against the government can claim at least some of their legal fees so I think that's absolutely wonderful so I wanted to bring that little injection of joy to you before we get to our last story something because this last story it's the first time I audibly gasped while watching the news when I saw this headline come up on the on the screen and I I would just my eyes folder with tear. It was the most horrific thing so content morning I audibly gasped but our final story is about a horrific horrific thing coming from the New York Times Tuesday night about things trump trump has said privately about migrants based on about a dozen interviews from sources with knowledge who were at the meetings trump talked privately about fortifying his wall with a water filled trench with alligators or snakes and while that may sound like he was joking he actually asked aids for a cost estimate for that he wanted an electrified wall he wanted his wall to have flesh piercing spikes on the top and after publicly suggesting a border patrol agent that Border Patrol agents shoot migrants who threw rocks remember that he was he threw shoot him. He was told that was illegal and you have to stop that later privately. He suggested they shoot them in the legs to slow them down so this is just absolutely this is. I like barely awards. I I can't even think of what to say yeah. it's horrifying. It's absolutely horrifying. These are human human beings yeah I. I'm a I'm so grateful for the community of the show because you guys give me so much hope that we are going to turn this corner away from this administration. and better days will come but it's it's so fucking hard reading stuff like this because we've known that we've suspected and we've you've seen tidbits of the site of trump especially right now with him calling for the execution of people in Congress essentially so it's really terrifying but I I don't even know what to say what else to say I mean. He's a it's not a good person. That's it's hard. It's hard to read to know what to say. It's so awful and I was only getting through like the first paragraph of it I would say for me. The we've been talking a little bit about balance on the podcast lately. Today seems like a really great day to donate to The you know the charity or fund of your choice choice that helps people at the border. macy's Texas is a great one. Yeah I know more deaths as one that I've contributed to in the past past so yeah do you research but goth can doing something to help the people at the border and to help the refugees. Yes like a really great ask for today because we had not such good news on immigration with the federal judge is blocking his you know all over the country not just one hundred miles from the border deport anyone who doesn't have papers MHM rule and then the other one which was he wanted to be able to detain children indefinitely yeah we had such good news and then and then this comes out and I can call it a distraction if you want but I think it has to be talked about yeah it's so this was this was world.

"ZIPRECRUITER DOT com slash daily beans ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire all right welcome back so any McCabe everybody was talking on Friday. I must have gotten zillion tweets from a bunch of. Can you know trump supporting jerks that were like your boys going down. He's going to be indicted. Maybe darted and the they went on and there was no indictment and that was really interesting and people are now like law. Fair are thinking that perhaps the grand jury didn't return an indictment and that's it's really rare. It doesn't happen very often to reconvene for for them to not turn in an indictment when the prosecution acution the Department of Justice has recommended charges be filed for them to reconvene a not return an indictment yeah because the grand jury doesn't go by beyond a reasonable doubt they don't have that high of a bar they'd have probable cause which is a little bit less of a it's an it's not by preponderance of the evidence so it's not like fifty one forty nine but it's somewhere between that and like the the full beyond a reasonable doubt standard and so for them to not return when the prosecution line prosecution made a recommendation is very very that means he didn't do anything wrong. They don't have a case and it's. It's it's fascinating to me that we haven't heard this now. There are other explanations available like perhaps they've re convened a new grand jury and and so they have to be read in on all the information that could take some time but we haven't heard anything to that effect. That's not being reported so I really honestly think what's happening here because again. The indictment usually comes back the same day when somebody loses their appeal to not be charged which McCabe did according to the Department of Justice and and that's the other thing these announcements are coming out of the Department of Justice if time has passed since they last convened. Do you think that they have to bring them back to see if how many of them have become tainted it or something because they're supposed to be impartial right yeah well apparently the the grand jury hasn't convened. They haven't met for a few months because they've been on a month long hiatus and during that time there's been appeals you know on the behalf. McCabe trying to say don't charge me. I'm appealing these charges and but this is grand jury stuff this isn't what what we normally think of as a court of appeals but the DOJ has come back and usually when the DOJ comes back and says no then the grand jury reconvenes and they deliver an indictment and convenient but they didn't deliver an indictment and we know that two of the top line prosecutors left. This case went back to private practice. I don't understand why Jesse Salou hasn't resigned. I don't know what's going on with that. She's I've I've kind of always felt. She was a good a good guy but I don't know because if she was bringing winging the charges knowing that it's not a case that gets a winnable case that means she's corrupt and I I don't I or hate to believe that she he is but or she knows that just like you said that he didn't do anything wrong therefore he won't actually be indicted and she she's doing what she has to stay in that position because she is good. I know it's kind of like a do. It's almost like playing dirty for the right reasons which I imagine a lot of government. Officials are probably doing right now not all but some just enough to kind of stay in that position of power and influence without totally you know giving in to the agenda of the trump administration corrupt yeah. It's not your way. You're totally right about by definition is corrupt but I can see the gray area. There probably being for the rat hole fully for the right reasons. We still don't know I I tend to disagree. I think that if you are corrupt up to your fucking corrupt and that's it you can't have the rule of law and justice be You know one hundred percent for everybody. If you're even if you're doing get for what what are what are the reasons because you're right they would be the right reasons yeah yeah and if he doesn't get charged. I can see someone talking themselves out of like well. I didn't actually do it so i. I don't feel like the corrupt deed was done but you're saying just by even letting it go that far yeah if you're if you're Jessie Liu and the president is or the Department of Justice were bar or Rosen are pressuring you to indict someone in you know that that there's not a case there. You need to resign and you need to go public with it. that otherwise if you don't just like if you. I don't think that she would say and I don't think I hope nobody would ever do this that you know. I'll just let them have this. They won't win the case but I gotta stay here to protect other GAL. She would do what lose the battle to win the war that whole thing yeah. I can see it applying but maybe not not in this case. Maybe just in general. I can see someone in the government plying it so that's where I'm coming from but you're right right by definition. Corruption is corruption but you know people are people. I just don't think that that happened. I personally don't think that happened being a government employee. I don't think that happens in the government. Yeah I think government at least people who operate ethically in the government would go to that level of corruption just to stay in their position to shield from other corruption you you leave and you okay sure sure yeah. I agree to disagree. I can see that the both things being correct yeah totally but you're right. Those would be the right reasons a little moron cavanaugh I wanted to talk about. We still don't know who owns him and this is weird. I wanted to bring this back around because I I remember in two thousand six and Greg earlier just did a a threat on this. He's going to be joining us in Boston. On November. Seventh by the way that Kavanagh's bought a house for like one point two million dollars they apparently put two hundred and fifty thousand dollars down but it doesn't appear that that two hundred fifty thousand dollars doesn't appear in any of US financial records and his financial disclosures show a net worth of ninety one thousand dollars the mortgage payments were more when he took home after taxes and within a year of buying a house to family was deep in debt about a million dollars in credit card debt and I think that that could be connected to a possible gambling bling problem of with cavenaugh where in order to pay off high level bookies he would have to I don't know do something like purchase nationals season tickets and then get the cash from a friend and put it on his credit card so that basically he can get large chunk of cash upfront without without having to pay that huge percentage rate for cash advances on credit cards or getting alone because apparently he didn't have any money or collateral just his house house which was also mysteriously paid off and then of course we have that video of trump saying something to justice. Kennedy and Kennedy getting visibly mad shook he was shook us and then cavenaugh replaced Kennedy by the way and we know Kennedy son worked for Deutsche Bank and it's obvious trump is doing everything he can to block Congress from getting Deutsche Bank records and then there was that reporting from Lawrence O'Donnell that that trump forced him to retract which he kind of did that Russians co-signed Deutsche Bank enclosed for trump so deal was made here and and it had to be cavanaugh because otherwise there's no way any would would face the problems of of having a nominee lake cavanaugh and still shove him through. They're not like old buddies or anything right. There's no other connection. I think you're totally right zero. It's just so fishy I I don't. I don't like it. No Sir no sir actually it's Promo Ren and stimpy quote all right so Chris Collins remember this guy here. He appeared in court this Thursday. This is a Republican congressman is facing felony charges for insider trading he's accused of passing an insider tip about a failed drug a EH company that he sits on the board for to his son who then passed it onto his girlfriend's. Dad and Collins Attorney says he's still considering appealing. The judge's recent decision to reject acted defenses request to see more evidence. He's asking for more evidence because Collins believes it might prove that his constitutional rights were violated specifically his speech and debate the debate rights which protects against Congress people actions of Congress people while they're at work so basically saying I'm allowed to insider trade if I'm Congress if I'm at Congress jobbing what he's trying to make sense and speech eighteen debate clouds. I can break the law. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if that holds up right free speech and free to be yeah if if you rob a bank while in Congress come on on don't violate my speech and debate bank robbing yeah you probably paid a per diem for as long as you stay at the trump hotel all of course a Susan Collins has not decided if he's going to run again although he told reporters outside the courthouse. I will tell you that if I do run. I'm very confident I will win. Pulling says right now I would win a primary in a landslide and he says he'll make his decision by the end of the year. I think like the song land slammed by Dixie chicks more like that like different kinds of landslides so sad breakup I if we would Mac but yeah. Oh Yeah Dude he could sell a ham sandwich to a homeless person. Wait was the dixie chicks cover verret fleetwood Mac. Is that what it was. Yeah okay well. There we go. Oh wasn't that they did it. Cover the dixie chicks cover and that's how I got all thrown off and don't come at may trump supporters about cancel cards cancel culture because you know dixie chicks okay. I love him yeah no yet. Did you say dixie chicks to the cover fleetwood MAC yeah. It's like the the same song ourselves out here in New York name Barron in new dare. Oh you do okay. That was our cover. We're a radio station and final thoughts yeah if you got paid to bring up conyers if if trump paid him to be some stupid as uncle Tom Black trump supporter. I will listen to him but I hope that's not the case. People are speculating it is I WANNA see receipts. I think that would be really socially-responsible of someone like him like one of my idols and now that would be huge that would be like the actual idea being an uncle. Tom Not just like when you're throwing out to someone you know just cavalier like he would be selling himself to someone who is hurting the community so that would suck yeah yet but I've had to give up my Morrissey. Yeah I listen to a lot of Konya and I know it gives him money any every time and I just wouldn't be able to support that anymore. I listen to a lot more seven. Listen to more citizens before you were born. I'm sorry I didn't even know he's just an ASO's one. He's an outright right winging see to me. This is too far. Yeah wait for the receipts happens exactly. I really hope it's not the case. I hope so too but I mean I don't have to stop listening to Connie. I never started any final thoughts. Thank you Seattle. Yes Oh yeah amazing show so-called so cool great people good job. Everybody aren't that's it. Just take care of each other. Take care of yourselves..

"ZIPRECRUITER DOT com slash daily beans ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire all right welcome back so any McCabe. Everybody was talking on Friday. I must have gotten a Zillion tweets from a bunch of uh-huh. You know trump supporting jerks that were like your boys going down. He's going to be indicted. Maybe darted and the they went on and there was no indictment and that was really interesting and people are now like law. Fair are thinking that perhaps the grand jury didn't return an indictment and that's it's really rare. It doesn't happen very often to reconvene for for them to not turn in an indictment when the prosecution acution the Department of Justice has recommended charges be filed for them to reconvene a not return an indictment yeah because the grand jury doesn't go by beyond a reasonable doubt they don't have that high of a bar they'd have probable cause which is a little bit less of a it's an it's not by preponderance of the evidence so it's not like fifty one forty nine but it's somewhere between that and like the the full beyond a reasonable doubt standard and so for them to not return when the Prosecution Line Prosecution made a recommendation is very very that means he didn't do anything wrong. They don't have a case and it's. It's it's fascinating to me that we haven't heard this now. There are other explanations available like perhaps they've re convened a new grand jury and and so they have to be read in on all the information that could take some time but we haven't heard anything to that effect. That's not being reported so I really honestly think what's happening here because again. The indictment usually comes back the same day when somebody loses their appeal to not be charged which McCabe did according to the Department of Justice and and that's the other thing these announcements are coming out of the Department of Justice if time has passed since they last convened. Do you think that they have to bring them back to see how many of them have become tainted it or something because they're supposed to be impartial right yeah well apparently the the grand jury hasn't convened. They haven't met for a few months because they've been on a month long hiatus and during that time there's been appeals you know on the behalf. McCabe trying to say don't charge me. I'm appealing these charges and but this is grand jury stuff this isn't what what we normally think of as a court of appeals but the DOJ has come back and usually when the DOJ comes back and says no then the grand jury reconvenes and they deliver an indictment and convenient but they didn't deliver an indictment and we know that two of the top line prosecutors left. This case went back to private practice. I don't understand why Jesse Salou hasn't resigned. I don't know what's going on with that. She's I've I've kind of always felt. She was a good a good guy but I don't know because if she was bringing winging the charges knowing that it's not a case that is that's a winnable case that means she's corrupt and I I don't I or hate to believe that she he is but or she knows that just like you said that he didn't do anything wrong therefore he won't actually be indicted and she she's doing what she has to stay in that position because she is good. I know it's kind of like a do. It's almost like playing dirty for the right reasons which I imagine a lot of government. Officials are probably doing right now not all but some just enough to kind of stay in that position of power and influence without totally you know giving in to the agenda of the trump administration so corrupt yeah.

"jessie liu" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote

"Take all right so the first big story that broke Thursday is that the Justice Department has apparently only rejected Andrew McCabe bid to avoid charges and we thought that he was going to be indicted but there's today today I mean we talked about this August twenty six a couple of weeks ago when when his lawyers met with Jeff Rosen the the deputy attorney general and Jessie Liu and we thought oh he's going to be indicted so anyway there was news came come came out of the DOJ today which is interesting so kind of take it with a grain of salt but there's something else going on here even though the Washington Post this is reported that Jessie Liu and the line prosecutors in DC recommended charges against McCabe even though two of line prosecutors quit in the middle of the investigation because because I didn't like the way it was being handled Spencer Sue from Washington Post tweeted today that the federal grand jury investigating McCabe was suddenly called back to after months like they had like a months-long height and they were just suddenly called back so maybe they balked uninviting. McCabe and the message seems to be unclear. It's weird so we haven't heard anything since this morning but we will keep you posted on it. and I've got a lot of good inside sources on this and you know I'll I'll. I'll give you the latest that I can and right now. I don't have any off the record stuff that I know that I can't tell you. This is just where we're at. I did have some but then that reporting came to light and then also today Thursday the House Judiciary voted and passed their committee impeachment rules that we've been talking about who bring it back yeah and so now everyone I know you're mad out about how long impeachment is taken. I mad about how long impeachment has taken but it's time to stop being mad about it. Because now it's happening and we can't go back in time so we have to go forward so yes. It sucks that we didn't start this earlier. I think personally think that right after Muller testified right after mull report came out we should have passed ask these rules and started impeachment hearings they did in my mind started impeachment inquiry after Muller Testified Nadler then immediately petitioned the court for the grand jury materials invoking article impeachment powers but you know people are like no but this using the exact Watergate map of impeachment hearing rules and invoking like bringing in the president and how he can respond to this. It's clear to me now that we are now impeachment and the House Judiciary dumbs actually tweeted weeded out whether you call it an impeachment inquiry whether you call it an impeachment investigation legally they mean the same thing and that's what we're doing. That's so exciting so it is. It's very exciting even though I know that I need to mitigate hopes because it's probably not gonna go. I wanted to go right now yeah but at least they're at least they'll have the confidence. Representatives are doing what their job is. Yes yes and keep in mind. Impeachment was never going to get rid of them. So it's not like had. They started impeachment earlier. We could have gotten rid of trump's sooner. That's not how it works. The Senate is probably not going to vote. They probably aren't even going to take up the trial McConnell at Lou likely block it as he said he said that he would all this means that they're doing their constitutional duty and that we're going to have public hearings and we're going to be able to get the evidence we need and it's going to be going into the twenty twenty election cycle. We are always going to have to vote them out. We we had to were still have to no matter matter what and we couldn't have impeached him before January of this year anyway because the House Judiciary Committee was run by Republicans previous to January two thousand nineteen so I think it's going I again. I wish they would have opened an official impeachment inquiry after Muller testify but they didn't and now here we are so we're going to go forward with it and that's that's that's. That's how it's going. Natasha Bertrand who's been reporting on the US Air Force investigation into expenditures at trump properties specifically the turnberry resort and Glasgow. Oh she she broke the story that they stayed there. Once and everyone was like Holy Shit and then she came out and said Oh nope they've stayed there a couple of times that we know about now and then the air force we're going to look into it will the air force has already done with their preliminary investigation into this and they're preliminarily the Air Force has lodged crews at trump's turnberry resort forty times since two thousand fifteen to him now figure this far higher than any previously known and congressional. Democrats are also trying to investigate this but guess what the PR-. The Pentagon hasn't provided any information every investigation the dumpster doing is they're being stonewalled on and this is just where we're at home mm-hmm. I saw Scott Stedman comment on twitter thread that had the story in its saying. Can we give the number from January two thousand seventeen but it's like even twenty fifteen if if he even thinks at all that he has a remote chance of getting elected then he's GonNa Start working that plan out yeah and here's the thing if you're the air force it's two thousand fifteen and Barack Obama's president you can stay at the turnberry resort if it's within the the the per diem lodging per diem for the military and and then once trump becomes president you don't stay there anymore because then you're violating the emoluments clause because you're personally enriching the president because he never divested himself from the trump organization which runs the trump hotels but as thirty eight times in two thousand fifteen before trump took over obviously that is not so you know that's it's what you're supposed to do. You know people do under Obama. Obama doesn't own turnberry so I don't want to hear your weak ass argument about he did it in two thousand fifteen it trump and then you know they were saying in the article that Oh you know they were charging him one hundred and thirty dollars a night to stay at turnberry which is within the government. That's the government rate but it doesn't matter you can't give of a dime to a president. You can't enrich a president with using the military's money it's it's against friggin constitution and even if if it did if it didn't qualify as an emolument which I think that it clearly does but even if it doesn't it is a bad look. It looks really bad in the Air Force has conceded that they've said we're I'm looking into it whether this is illegal or whether it violates any rules or policies of the air force they haven't even talked about emoluments and it might not be emoluments because of monuments mostly is for foreign governments and this is the US military but you know just to to enrich yourself off the government off of the job of president. There's there's a that ah that's a bad look and it's impeachable offence. It is so I shouldn't I should keep I should stop bringing the emoluments clause when it comes to this because it's not a foreign it's not like when when Saudi Arabia came in and bought the entire floor of the trump. DC We have enough of monuments problems. Space should be considered foreign. It's weird that you get to claim airspace. Oh Oh Yeah Air Force Air Forces and and they work in outerspace totally foreign there you go that they are in American reinstitution so I guess we can't fall under emoluments but it's certainly bad look and again it. These these ethical rules norms that we've been following forever that just don't don't have any teeth. There's there's a problem with that. If there wasn't a problem with that congresswoman be investigating it and they can't even get the stuff that they need that they need also we learned Thursday that Epstein Stein's shady secret charity called gratitude America Gross operated through an account at Deutsche Bank. Just like we guest beans come true. Didn't we say that like a couple of weeks ago. We're like buddy runs everything out of Deutsche Bank yeah gratitude America Gratitude America gratitude for what ruining my whole conception of my adolescent life exactly so awful gratitude for the plane loads of underage girl yeah God God so that's and I wanNA tell you we're we're flying through these stories real quick. We're going to go over the like majorly in the weekends show and we're going to talk about talk about these more in depth in another show. We're just kinda because we're on the road and because the debates are on right now and there's a lot going on Amandas over here she waiting to eat your food and I but I didn't WanNa. I didn't leave with nothing so we are flying through this. I do politics for that but it'll be okay. Now we have we do have a little Schadenfreude or for you know Shadan Friday as no. You're not know what Sean Fraud Is. Please tell me because I'm dying to know jamming. Tampa Shameful Gye okay member remember the black man that president trump referred to as my African American rally. Yes I do well that man's name is Gregory cheadle and after two years of frustration Gratien with trump's racist bullshit cheadle told PBS Newshour. He's leaving the Republican Party and he's going to run for a seat as an independent in twenty twenty. Oh my God that is bad ass. Wow Okay so really the way out of this blatant. Racism is more blatant racism so people turn and run for the seats themselves yeah. This is a great message. The only way out is through that agreement finding Nemo right yeah but then that fat guy quote unquote quote trump or whatever he's just fine with it. He's like I'm not getting off my ass to run. I'm not in that was not a fat joke. No but you know I mean trump. Trump has said so many racist things since he called him his African American that one didn't qualify but perhaps if trump became you know like on a daily basis fat shaming people or you know that then maybe that one guy yeah might change his mind and run as an independent for how stem the house anyway good job. Gregory cheadle lives in Redding California. I don't know if that's where he's running but he's running in twenty twenty as an independent and that's cool is tired of trump's bullshit bad ass. That's really cool all right time to get Social Hashtag and on the obvious Hashtag for Thursday night as we record this from our hotel room and Seattle is Hashtag dem debate and we finish watching most of it. It's still going on and and I think this is what the problem is. We have these two two and a half hour debates ten people on the stage. DNC needs to get their shit together. I tweeted out this is funny. I tweeted out. I can't wait till the millennials takeover. The physician and somebody's like you just because you millennials dude. I'm like I'm not a millennial. I is leave me out of it. I'm gen-x. You guys fight it out. You know you suck and you take it over and fix it and I am the story of your life as a xer just in between these two CBS they should call us. Gen xers because Marcia Marcia Marcia were the middle children of of society and that's fine. We we like it. y'All hash it out but it's the this stuff this debate shit is the the format the Times James the link to the number of people on stage. It's bullshit and if we have more than ten people qualified for the Fourth of debates. They'd better split them up into two groups because this ten people on stages is it's not fair to the to the candidates. They can't get anything I agree. It also kind of makes it so we keep hearing the exact same things over and over and over again because is people have they've condensed their policy into four sentence structure so and so there's only so many times someone's going to hear that and actually get anything from it whereas if they have more time to talk they can go into to the nuances of it here. It's just like okay. You said these exact same things in the first debate. We heard you talking yeah yeah. You're totally right. I think so far art and we've missed the end of it here because we've been talking to you guys but I think the clear winners to Mir Buddha judge Worn Harris they're my favorites. Castro was fucking feisty after Biden. It was almost like the rest of the candidates paid him to go after Biden like do we'll give you a hundred bucks and speaking of paying. Yang up front in his opening statement. Yang Andrea offered ten people a thousand dollars a month for a year and that was a dope do this this hits so many things first of all you're. GonNa get a lot of news out of that. He's given money away second of all he's going to get to test his theory on universal basic income which is a huge thing that a lot of people pull a lot of especially young progressive talk about. Ub and I just thought that was and it was funny because Buddha judge had to follow him and he's like that's one way to do it. In America you know he just goes on with US opening. Yeah that is so smart. Though because what policy do they have have. Does anybody else have that..

I'll give you the latest that I can and right now. I don't have any off the record stuff that I know that I can't tell you. This is just where we're at. I did have some but then that reporting came to light and then also today Thursday the House Judiciary voted and passed their committee impeachment rules that we've been talking about who bring it back yeah and so now everyone I know you're mad out about how long impeachment is taken. I mad about how long impeachment has taken but it's time to stop being mad about it. Because now it's happening and we can't go back in time so we have to go forward so yes. It sucks that we didn't start this earlier. I think personally think that right after Muller testified right after mull report came out we should have passed ask these rules and started impeachment hearings they did in my mind started impeachment inquiry after Muller Testified Nadler then immediately petitioned the court for the grand jury materials invoking article impeachment powers but you know people are like no but this using the exact watergate map of impeachment hearing rules and invoking like bringing in the president and how he can respond to this. It's clear to me now that we are now impeachment and the House Judiciary dumbs actually tweeted weeded out whether you call it an impeachment inquiry whether you call it an impeachment investigation legally they mean the same thing and that's what we're doing. That's so exciting so it is. It's very exciting even though I know that I need to mitigate hopes because it's probably not gonna go. I wanted to go right now yeah but at least they're at least they'll have the confidence. Representatives are doing what their job is. Yes yes and keep in mind. Impeachment was never going to get rid of them. So it's not like had. They started impeachment earlier. We could have gotten rid of trump's sooner. That's not how it works. The Senate is probably not going to vote. They probably aren't even going to take up the trial McConnell at Lou likely block it as he said he said that he would all this means that they're doing their constitutional duty and that we're going to have public hearings and we're going to be able to get the evidence we need and it's going to be going into the twenty twenty election cycle. We are always going to have to vote them out. We we had to were still have to no matter matter what and we couldn't have impeached him before January of this year anyway because the House Judiciary Committee was run by Republicans previous to January two thousand nineteen so I think it's going I again. I wish they would have opened an official impeachment inquiry after Muller testify but they didn't and now here we are so we're going to go forward with it and that's that's that's. That's how it's going. Natasha Bertrand who's been reporting on the US Air Force investigation into expenditures at trump properties specifically the turnberry resort and Glasgow. Oh she you know she broke the story that they stayed there. Once and everyone was like Holy Shit and then she came out and said Oh nope they've stayed there a couple of times that we know about now and then the air force we're going to look into it will the air force has already done with their preliminary investigation into this and they're preliminarily the Air Force has lodged crews at trump's turnberry resort forty times since two thousand fifteen to him now figure this far higher than any previously known and congressional. Democrats are also trying to investigate this but guess what the PR-. The Pentagon hasn't provided any information every investigation the dumpster doing is they're being stonewalled on and this is just where we're at home mm-hmm. I saw Scott Stedman comment on twitter thread that had the story in its saying. Can we give the number from January two thousand seventeen but it's like even twenty fifteen if if he even thinks at all that he has a remote chance of getting elected then he's GonNa Start working that plan out yeah and here's the thing if you're the air force it's two thousand fifteen and Barack Obama's president you can stay at the turnberry resort if it's within the the the per diem lodging per diem for the military and and then once trump becomes president. You don't stay there anymore. Because then you're violating the emoluments clause because you're personally enriching the president because he never divested himself from the trump organization which runs the you know the trump hotels but as thirty eight times in two thousand fifteen before trump took over obviously that is not so you know that's it's what you're supposed to do. You know people do under Obama. Obama doesn't own turnberry so I don't want to hear your weak ass argument about he did it in two thousand fifteen it trump and then you know they were saying in the article that Oh you know they were charging him one hundred and thirty dollars a night to stay at turnberry which is within the government. That's the government rate but it doesn't matter you can't give of a dime to a president. You can't enrich a president with using the military's money it's it's against friggin constitution and even if if it did if it didn't qualify as an emolument which I think that it clearly does but even if it doesn't it is a bad look. It looks really bad in the Air Force has conceded that they've said we're I'm looking into it whether this is illegal or whether it violates any rules or policies of the air force they haven't even talked about emoluments and it might not be emoluments because of monuments mostly is for foreign governments and this is the US military but you know just to to enrich yourself off the government off of the job of president. There's there's a that ah that's a bad look and it's impeachable offence. It is so I shouldn't I should keep I should stop bringing the emoluments clause when it comes to this because it's not a foreign it's not like when when Saudi Arabia came in and bought the entire floor of the trump. DC We have enough of monuments problems. Space should be considered foreign. It's weird that you get to claim airspace. Oh Oh Yeah Air Force Air Forces and and they work in outerspace totally foreign there you go that they are in American reinstitution so I guess we can't fall under emoluments but it's certainly bad look and again it. These these ethical rules norms that we've been following forever that just don't don't have any teeth. There's there's a problem with that. If there wasn't a problem with that Congress wouldn't be investigating it and they can't even get the stuff that they need that they need. Also we learned Thursday that Epstein Stein's shady secret charity called gratitude America Gross operated through an account at Deutsche Bank. Just like we guest beans come true. Didn't we say that like a couple of weeks ago. We're like buddy runs everything out of Deutsche Bank yeah gratitude America Gratitude America gratitude for what ruining my whole conception of my adolescent life exactly so awful gratitude for the plane loads of underage girl yeah God God so that's and I wanNA tell you we're we're flying through. These stories real quick. We're GONNA go over the like majorly in the weekends show and we're going to talk about talk about these more in depth in another show. We're just kinda because we're on the road and because the debates are on right now and there's a lot going on Amandas over here she waiting to eat your food and I but I didn't wanNA. I didn't leave with nothing so we are flying through this. I do politics for that but it'll be okay. Now we have we do have a little schadenfreude before you know it Shadan Friday as no. You're not know what Sean Fraud Is. Please tell me because I'm dying to know jamming. Tampa Shameful Gye okay member remember the black man that president trump referred to as my African American rally. Yes I do well that man's name is Gregory cheadle and after two years of frustration Gratien with trump's racist bullshit cheadle has told PBS Newshour. He's leaving the Republican Party and he's going to run for a seat as an independent in twenty twenty. Oh my God that is bad ass. Wow Okay so really the way out of this blatant. Racism is more blatant racism so people turn and run for the seats themselves yeah. This is a great message. The only way out is through that agreement finding Nemo right yeah but then that fat guy quote unquote quote trump or whatever he's just fine with it. He's like I'm not getting off my ass to run. I'm not in that was not a fat joke. No but you know I mean trump. Trump has said so many racist things since he called him his African American that one didn't qualify but perhaps if trump became you know like on a daily basis fat shaming people or you know that then maybe that one guy yeah might change his mind and run as an independent for how stem the house anyway good job. Gregory cheadle lives in Redding California. I don't know if that's where he's running but he's running in twenty twenty as an independent and that's cool is tired of trump's bullshit bad ass. That's really cool all right time to get Social Hashtag and on the obvious Hashtag for Thursday night as we record this from our hotel room and Seattle is Hashtag dem debate and we finish watching most of it. It's still going on and and I think this is what the problem is. We have these two two and a half hour debates ten people on the stage. DNC needs to get their shit together. I tweeted out this is funny. I tweeted out. I can't wait till the millennials takeover. The physician and somebody's like you just because you millennials dude. I'm like I'm not a millennial. I is leave me out of it. I'm gen-x. You guys fight it out. You know you suck and you take it over and fix it and I am the story of your life as a xer just in between these two CBS they should call us. Gen xers because Marcia Marcia Marcia were the middle children of of society and that's fine. We we like it. y'All hash it out but it's the this stuff this debate shit is the the format the Times James the link to the number of people on stage. It's bullshit and if we have more than ten people qualified for the Fourth of debates. They'd better split them up into two groups because this ten people on stages is it's not fair to the to the candidates. They can't get anything I agree. It also kind of makes us so we keep hearing the exact same things over and over and over again because is people have they've condensed their policy into four sentence structure so and so there's only so many times someone's going to hear that and actually get anything from it whereas if they have more time to talk they can go into to the nuances of it here. It's just like okay. You said these exact same things in the first debate. We heard you talking yeah yeah. You're totally right. I think so far art and we've missed the end of it here because we've been talking to you guys but I think the clear winners to Mir Buddha judge Worn Harris they're my favorites. Castro was fucking feisty after Biden. It was almost like the rest of the candidates paid him to go after Biden like do we'll give you a hundred bucks and speaking of paying. Yang up front in his opening statement. Yang Andrea offered ten people a thousand dollars a month for a year and that was a dope do this this hits so many things first of all you're. GonNa get a lot of news out of that. He's given money away second of all he's going to get to test his theory on universal basic income which is a huge thing that a lot of people pull a lot of especially young progressive talk about. Ub and I just thought that was and it was funny because Buddha judge had to follow him and he's like that's one way to do it. In America you know he just goes on with US opening. Yeah that is so smart. Though because what policy do they have have. Does anybody else have that..

"Flynn told Muller that Trump asked him multiple times, to get the Hillary emails and Flint, contacted multiple people in that effort if you remember a long time ago, and no one believed Peter Smith was actually contacted by Flynn, like he would just making shit up, but he wasn't deed and beans came true, at least according to Flynn and now we know that thanks to recently unredacted Flynn sentencing memoranda that Flynn was indeed asked by Trump to get Hillary's emails. In a recent court hearing judge Emmet Sullivan, who is the judge overseeing the Flynn case ordered the public release of all redacted. Muller report information regarding Flynn are related to Flynn, along with transcripts of his conversations with Kislyak during the transition and the tape of the voicemail from Trump's lawyer Dowd, to Flynn's lawyer and van grant and Jessie Liu in the US attorney's office in DC objected to releasing, well, they printed out the voicemail Dowd's voicemail, which was just a hey, if you know it's good for you. You tell us and otherwise, I'm going to go back until Trump. You don't like him witness tampering and dangling a pardon. But he, they did object to Solan releasing the Kislyak conversations. And they said regarding the report, you have it all except for grand jury material. And so Flynn did apparently contact Peter Smith to help find the Clinton emails and was directed to do so by someone in the Trump campaign, and we just found out today Soligan. Has he's not mad about it about them not releasing not following his order. He's like, all right. Then he didn't give a reason why. So to me that says that those Kislyak conversations there's probably more than two. The government's never publicly acknowledged they exist. And so they're probably super classified or they have something to do with the Fisk or Feis, and there's other stuff in there maybe related to an ongoing matter or super class so super classified that there's just no way. And so somebody probably came up to celebrate and went Spro classified Fisk. And he's like, oh, all right. Cool. I accept your weird ass, you know, because that was a weird objection by Jesse. Lou and van and van graph used to be on the team. And now he's the head of the new faira investigation unit in the department of Justice. Yeah. I think of them in gross say crack again but like Graca name grown gra- van van band. Grech. So Barbara lead and started looking for Hillary's emails before Flynn, even contacted her as early as December twenty fifteen and reached out to Peter Smith and then went back and forth. But Smith decided not to work with her at that point, then Smith tried to get the emails himself and this, we know about because it, it was reported diligently on in our previous episodes, and in public reporting, he created the company k LS research, which is on our fancy indictment draft. He raised tens of thousands of dollars that were mysterious transactions he recruited security experts. He claimed he was in contact with hackers with ties to Russia, and that he was coordinating with the Trump campaign Peterson sent an Email about his efforts to Sam Clovis most of what Muller knows comes from Tate. Let's see if I can get this, right? So Boxin and saffron all of which we've discussed on the show all the way back to August of last year. August twenty team so a little background here. Peter Smith is a longtime old Republican operative. That's actively opposed the Clintons since the nineties, reportedly paying thousands of dollars. To promote stories about Bill Clinton's extramarital affairs. Matt Tate is a cyber security expert, suboxone was added to our fantasy.

"No, they're already be investigated already the fiscal defies a process. So I don't think that's I don't think the Justice department or they, you know, I don't think they bring charges or not bring charges investigator non investigate based on what political party would do. But. I mean that would definitely happen. I mean, if they were spying on Flynn, you know, quote unquote, spying on them, they would they would they would then be able to maybe use that word with a little more vigor. But they, they like they were listening to his conversations because he was talking to Russians. Yeah. The defense may be the not the political parties. I should just just said the defense maybe offense, then would start saying that because if stones lawyers are using how they got the money to even fund the special counsel as a motion to try to like, not, not go down the road that it's most certainly going to go down. I wouldn't be surprised if they would do that. That's. Yeah. Interesting thought and guys oddly Lindsey Graham flipped on Trump during a Gulf outing with him. And makes me wonder if Trump was told about conversations between Graham, and the Russians that the government intercepted under Feis us extra seventy-two, because that's when Graham crackers started kissing his ass kind of like I know what you did last summer. Those are just beings. We might never know but we also have to remember that bar has been given full authority to declassify whatever he wants and investigating the origins of the Trump Russia investigation, and also. He oversees, the DC US attorney's office and Jessie Liu there. So as much as we might want to see the conversations we might never get to see them unless the Republicans want us to in which case, you know, if the Republicans want you to their either cherry picking or it's good for their case or whatever. So we can watch how Sullivan response if he's not super pissed, he might have gotten to Lincoln and odd for maybe the Fisk. And he might just have to get into a sealed back and forth to get the information for sentencing Flynn or he could he could blow up and keep demanding that they released to the public either way he's not the kinda Guy Fawkes around, so I think we'll know sooner rather than later on that. All right. Guys ready for sabotage. Yes. All right. Speaking of Michael Flynn, his business partner, bijon kion, and his associates, or his associate. Lt can were indicted by Muller as we know for not registering as foreign agents for Turkey and Flint helped to the government extensively in that case, and in the trial for kion, which starts in July new documents were released that proves Flynn was being paid by Turkey to lobby Trump and not only publicly defend Turkey to not only publicly defend Turkey, but also to try to connect Clinton, and her campaign and her foundation to Gula n-, the guy that Flynn was paid fifteen million dollars to, to kidnap and return to Turkey..
