Around the globe a bombshell hit right after our show. One live at about noon eastern time and believe me. I know that term is over in the media. I get it. I'm in the media. You know advertise explosive bomb. Show the case against Mike. Flynn was officially general. Mike Flynn was dropped by the Department of Justice because the case was a fake it was a fraud. It was a hoax and folks. We're not taking any victory laps because a lot of work to be done ahead. Now we turn the tables on the bad guys but we have been telling you about this for well over three years now have we. Not Joe I mean we heard this thing for so long that some of this stuff easily. That's right some of this stuff actually be old news to you which is a good thing but are going to walk through this thing from soup to nuts right now and we are going to expose these sleaze bags and we're going to produce the evidence and the new stuff. We got yesterday to form a total picture of the biggest scandal in. Us history before we get to that. Let's get through the media reaction the media of course which are colluded or not your friends. They are the bad guys in this. Not all of the media but the media folks who actively colluded with the people spying on donald trump colluded with fusion. Gps took money from fusion. Gps took talking points from Adam. Schiff took knowingly false. Talking points are now in a tizzy. They're losing their minds because they are part of the scandal. Do you understand this. The media's freaking out about General Flynn's near-total exoneration coming. The judge has to agree that the Department of Justice dropped the case against him yesterday. The judge has to agree. So let's not get ahead of ourselves but the judge most like Judge Sullivan will not force the DOJ to prosecute a case. That's a hoax. The media is losing their minds. Because they're part of it. Here is a quick montage here of the Media Reaction Yesterday. Totally melting down. And it's important to keep in mind as you're watching this that these people are part of the scandal. They aren't active Improv. The Soviet style disinformation campaign. Check this out. It's a pretty dark place on social media. The very first comment after the story broke that I saw on twitter was Putin. If you're listening. Hi Five Year asset and there are Russian flags and Russian memes popping up and now we see bill bar really just doing donald trump's dirty work now he has in his back pocket a little ag. Who saw to it to let fling go? It is breathtaking dishonesty. From the Justice Department this is the collapse of the Justice Department. Alla you caught my breath with collapse of the Justice Department. This is a case were the fix was in the fix is in not good for the rule of law. It's not good for morale and it's not a fair outcome. This is an absolute injustice. Not worry anyone who who cares about the rule of law. Mike Flynn's lawyers have been engaged in a smear campaign. This is a political and incredibly destructive thing to the rule of law. It's all heading towards the president wiping the Muller investigation out of the history books at least as far as criminal conviction. Okay hat tip. Media Research Center for that Awesome Montage Dozer grotesque awful people. Those are evil immoral disgusting human beings one of them. The call Wallace who's actually mentioned in some of the court documents because she is the awful fake hoaxer actually interviewed Jim. Komi Komi admitted to the setup of Mike Flint. So thank you Nicole for your role in exposing whether you did it by accident. You don't even know because you're not smart enough the biggest scandal in US history. What is the biggest scandal in? Us history. Let's get to it so ladies and gentlemen let's walk through from the beginning and keep in mind here. We now know that Obama new. Now if you're listening to this show you new President Obama at the time now. Former President Obama knew about this scandal the whole time but now we have the evidence and it is devastating so as I said on Fox and friends first this morning at five fifty. Am Eastern time. I might add very early. But I like them over there. If you're in the media and you're not asking the question right now what did Obama No? When did Obama? No what you're doing it wrong. Let's go back to the beginning. And when I say the beginning I'm talking about the beginning in Genesis of how Mike Flynn got a target on his back which led to the dismissal of the case by the DOJ yesterday the dropping of the case. Because they know they're involved in something really bad. Let's go back to the beginning August. Fifteenth of Two Thousand Sixteen. Ladies and Gentlemen Soon we have this interesting tax become a fascination of people in my sphere who are actually interested in the media. Excuse me in this case. Not not the mainstream media right. We had this tax by Peter Stroke of the FBI. Says I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in and talk about anti McCabe the deputy director of the FBI office that there's no way he gets elected but I'm afraid we can't take that risk talking about trump schroeck stroke texted Lisa page on August fifteenth. Two Thousand Sixteen. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before your forty keep in mind just five days earlier. They've opened up cases. Spying cases on Carter Page manafort and Popadopoulos all from the trump team. This is in the middle of two thousand sixteen in the middle of the election five days after they opened up those cases there in anti McCabe deputy director of the FBI talking about an insurance policy against trump. Now I've had some interesting shows in the insurance policy where I think the insurance policy was going back to the information they had gotten by Popadopoulos from friendly foreign government. I'm Gonna Dow that back a little bit and let's assume let's just make it easy at this point and assume the insurance policy at this point may have had more to do not just with Carter Page and Popadopoulos and the Australian tip but the insurance policy may have been their idea to go to the FISA court the spy on trump. It may have just been that simple that they realized they were going to need an actual warrant to spy on the trump. What makes me believe that now given the new information? Well let's go back to this visor coverage communication here. This is important. This is where they start talking about. Remember August fifteenth talking about an insurance policy. This is from the G report. They're talking about the crossfire. Hurricane Team told us that the proposal this them talking to the g the proposal for Pfizer coverage targeting Carter Page in other words. Get a warrant to spy in. The trump team originated from the team and was not instruction for management. The team also told us that the interest in a pacing of a warrant was based upon pages prior contacts with Russian intelligence officers for these reasons on August. Fifteenth case agent one email the written summary unpaid to the Oj so JI unit. Cheap folks. There it is right there. Yes it was likely about Carter page. Follow me here in the beginning. What does this have to do with Flynn? This whole thing starts in the summer fall and spring. I should say the spring of two thousand sixteen and in August. They get the idea that they are going to go for a warrant to spy on the trump team. That appears right now to be. What the insurance policy. You're talking about other words. God forbid trump gets elected will spy on him. Now we'll have a dossier information and we'll get them out later. They're talking about it right. There were the team decides to propose and these office as the tech says as the text says excuse me the team decides to propose to McCabe the management. Hey let's go for Pfizer coverage in a fire warrant to spy on them instead now the next day August fifteen the next day after August fifteenth. When they say hey. Let's go get FIS award spy on all these people what comes up. They decide the very next day to go. After general. Mike Flynn it says on August sixteenth. Two Thousand Sixteen as you can see from the edge report the FBI opened the fourth individual case under crossfire. Hurricane on Michael Flynn who was serving as the time as the trump national security trump campaign's national security advisor the next day. Now I'm going to go into their predicate their reasons for opening up case on my phone which we found out yesterday which are tragically hilarious. Ladies and gentlemen there reasons are so embarrassing that the Department of Justice is going to be walking this back in investigating people for decades after this the next day after inside they decided to open up a case on General Mike. Flynn what's the problem? As Germany's I'll show you later. Stay tuned we've got some nuclear bombs to drop today. We found out yesterday. Their reasons again are hilarious. They have nothing on. Mike Flynn but they are desperate to target. Flynn as we've shown you over the past couple of shows over the past couple of days because Flynn has threatened to expose the intelligence community as a former intelligence community chief of a division the DIA himself. What are the big intelligence agents. He was the head of it. He is threatened to expose their failures and he knows all about the Iran deal Obama's signature a foreign policy achievement. So they have to take him down and the FBI are going to be useful idiots doing so. They opened up on August. Sixteen now they don't have anything on. Flynn member this is under the headline the beginning. How this all starts they don't have anything on Flint and order for the FBI to open up a case they have to do an ECB and electron communication. They document the reasons. I'll get to that in a little while. But they don't have anything to open up a case on. Mike Flynn that they can put it in writing this off gotta be documented so what magically appears on August ten. You Know August tenth. The same day. They opened up the cases on the other member they opened up the case on. Flynn August sixteen but on August tenth they opened up cases on the FBI on Papadopoulos on Carter page on Manafort to spy on them from the trump he may open up actual counterintelligence investigations on them. But they don't open up on. Mike Flynn August tenth. Because they don't have anything so what all of a sudden magically appears on August tenth. Oh my gosh the steele dossier which the FBI claims. They had no access to here. It is you can see it right there. If you're watching youtube dot com slash Bongino and who magically is mentioned in a steele dossier memo dated? Look at the bottom to the right August tenth 2016. Who's mentioned it? Mike Flynn and his potential dealings with the Russians in recent visits to Moscow. And it's interesting. That Flynn's name appears in lower case letters. The only name that appears in lower case letters by the way suggesting it was thrown in there in the last minute. What am I telling you happened? Bottom line up front on August tenth the FBI opens up cases on page MANAFORT and Popadopoulos. But not on Flint. Somebody at the White House gets wind of this. Hey they didn't open up a case on my foot. We got open up a case on Mike. Flynn it's the Obama White House. We want to spy on him to. He's a piece of garbage. We gotta get rid of him. We don't like him. He's threatening to expose our mouth but the FBI is not doing it. Hey weaken a nod. Isn't Hillary working with that? Guy Steele was working with how her? Why doesn't he? Just right up a dossier memo dated August head. Slap it over to the FBI and say Mike Flynn's colluding with the Russias but he's making it up it doesn't matter he's making everything then we'll force the FBI's hand and magically six days later after that dossier arrives with the FBI. We already know they had it because we now have data the FBI agent. London we now have who who steals handler. By the way I'm excuse me who knows steel and who knows about that whole network. Gaeta in London is an FBI agent has now admitted because we have the testimony on the record that they had the steel and the FBI had it way prior to September..

"No. I'm not sick a lot of fighting going on here today. Just given me like the Dracula garlic around her neck was not not happy there in the background there was a major screw-up there I'm sorry yeah like edit some stuff that's why major major league all right moving on sale. This one goes so Jim Komi just will not give up folks. He gives this interview. This guy speak at this is like the impeachment. Update this is like the sleazeball. Update they'd Adam Schiff and our Jim Komi Komi who paints himself as bastion of truth in integrity. I'm not even kidding folks. He shows all the evidence of a almost sociopathic level liar. It doesn't matter what facts now Jim commies not expect that from Adam Schiff. He's a politician. Expect nothing nothing from and you'll typically get nothing so you're not disappointed but Jim call me was the director of the FBI. He was at one. Point was the deputy attorney general definitely had a high ranking position in the Justice Department. This is a guy you expect the utmost integrity honesty and impartiality geology who is a chronic unrepentant. I mean absolutely absolutely almost to the point of insanity I committed. I don't even have enough wasted described the insanity is doing the IDC. I G report is out. We know the steele dossier was the overwhelming majority of Pfizer report. We know it's been completely discredited. Is credited the bump we know steel sources said it was garbage and Komi just cannot give up. He still insists on going out there and defending his legacy which is clearly to any sane personnel a stain on the FBI in the United States. Instead of S- linking away in in horror at supervising the single most scandalous investigation in the history of the FBI. Instead of doing that Komi insists on still defending himself to break this up into two parts hears about a thirty second clip of Komi insisting this thing again that Christopher steals information was not the source of the opening of the investigation despite mounds of evidence indicating this is is an absolute lie. which will get you in a second? I'll show you actual testimony refuting this nonsense. Check out combing the so-called steele dossier came to us at headquarters headquarters in the middle of September so almost two months after we began the investigation and it was information from a reliable source that we didn't know what to make of and so treat it carefully and set out to try invalidate it on our own as you said some of it I believe was disproven. Some of it was unveiled at some of it was consistent right in its most important allegations with other intelligence. We had but the simple answers that had nothing to do with the opening of the investigation. I don't even know where to start I I I know I know what you're saying because it's frustrating because you're like this guy can't be this stupid. He's clearly a smart if not conniving Kinda snaky guy but he's not dumb. He can't be this stupid to think that I think he thinks if he keeps is lying. Eventually people will believe so i. We got our information from a reliable source. Steel was not reliable steel. There was not reliable people warned the FBI. The United States government from the United Kingdom steals information was not reliable. That's a fact act. That's on the record fact. Secondly we very the information carefully. GM The woods file which is the spreadsheet which shows feels allegations. And what you did to vet them is. We've already seen it. It shows. You did not vet them and the ones you did vet found that we're not true. What part of the missing? We have the paperwork. We have the documentation allegation one not true allegation to not true allegation. Three can't verify we've seen the woods vile Gal. I've only been talking about the woods file now for two years we've seen in the FBI did nothing to verify. It wasn't verified and what they could verify verify joe as full side right. Oh my gosh now. Now on the bigger charge which opened up with that the steelers yeah had nothing to do with us. Opening the case folks this is garbage it is is not true. Can we offer a quick timeline here. Please the crossfire. Hurricane Case Against Donald trump the spying operation against the campaign team was opened on July thirty first of two thousand sixteen. Do you realize how immune to facts. You have to be after what I'm about to show you hear to believe this had nothing to do steel with opening up the case on July thirty first. I'm GonNa show you some testimony here from bruiser cruiser sworn testimony and I want you to pay special attention to his answers in the dates and you tell me with a straight face that steals information. Russian had nothing to do with the F. B. I.. Open with a straight face. I'm not talking about liberals again because you can't make distribute face because you know you're lying you're trying to hold it in. Here's here's the testimony Abruzzo again pay special attention here to the dates. So Jim Jordan asks to talking about steel he asked sprucer who is a senior official. The Justice Department who was wife works for fusion. GPS that hired Christopher Steele Jordan. Says Okay did steal talk talk about that at all. Did he talk about what he was given to the. FBI Did he talk about his meeting with the FBI. In July Thirtieth Meeting Way Way Way Way wait so bruce or number four official at the FBI whose wife Nellie claims he's getting information from Ukrainians about trump and is working fusion. GPS that hired Christopher Steele to generate negative information on trump. Yeah Same Guy. That's his wife is meeting with his wife and steal on July thirtieth the day before they open up the case ladies challenges point is sworn casting. Jim Call Me may not seen this sure. So here's his answer. The only thing I recall steel mentioning is that he had provided two of his reports. Notice the dossier to special agent. GATOR Jordan says so the same information he gave you. Did he tell you he had given that directly recognize the FBI or says well. I don't know what he told the. FBI So just to be clear. Who Special Agent gator? Why does this matter again?

"Well not necessarily wonderful for depending on your perspective but it's it's wonderful that you summoned such scholars and I know that they'll be enlightening. Everyone Congressman I'd rather than you do not want to take a position one way or the other about Impeachment although you can if you like but you served with great distinction for a for Jew terms you've heard the debate tonight from the scholars and from your colleagues ask. An open ended question. What do you want to say about? The impeachment process stands now and I guess how would you approach it. If you're in Congress so I think with where this started since The president trump released the phone. Call transcript to where we are now. I've not seen much in the way of movement either from Democrats away from thinking. That impeachment is the appropriate way to deal with any Misuse or abuse or errant behavior. Nor have I seen seen Republicans move away from saying it was anything less than perfect phone call. I think Charlie Hunt His when Charlie retired retired. He said something. Funny that sticks with today he said you know the the fun and dysfunction has been removed from serving and and ah you know the thing I I think congresswoman Scanlan said something very appropriate in terms of the institution of Congress should should jealously guard what the role and function of Congress is as it was delineated in our constitution and the erosion of constant of Congressional Authority vis-a-vis. The executive branch has been one. That's taken place over seventy five years if not more but when you serve in Congress to sit there knowing what your role is supposed to supposed to be mindful that you're not actually exercising. Those perogatives is something. That's deeply frustrating. Moving forward. Since it was an open ended question. I my big concern. Is that no matter. No matter what happens happens right I I. My sense is that the house probably brings up articles probably votes on them. Although I still tend to think that there are a number the house Democrats that do not want to take this vote because it will hurt them in their districts but let's just assume how stems vote the way vote articles of impeachment. It goes to the Senate the Senate's not GonNa vote to impeach the president absent. Something extraordinary coming out between now and when they have the vote looking at this two years from now for years from now ten ten years from now when President of another party is in there were even the same party and something less than the type of bribery. We're talking about which isn't here. You take this money and I'll give you this but sort of if you do this then I can. I can help you with the favor. Sort of this muddled way that even the president talks right and and there's a difference between what you think. Obviously the president meant by what he said versus what you can prove and I just worry long term weather we've normalized allies. The extraordinary remedy of impeachment long-term. That's nothing that says nothing. That is not a judgment call on either of the sitting members of Congress here who I I think are doing their utmost in terms of diligence and honesty in doing what they feel is right long-term. Institutionally I wonder where we're going to be ten years from now as as a congress the next time something remotely close to this happens. Thank you very much for that. The congressman the congressman raises two. Really important points one is that impeachments have become so partisan that we're not going to see much cross partisan support. He says that that might hurt. Even some DEM's especially in swing districts and he worries that that could make the other party more likely to use impeachments in the future in that normalization could lead to more failed impeachments and more partisanship chip. You've been a strong supporter of impeachment under these facts. What's your response to his points? And what would you say to two members. Feel the same I didn't. I didn't go to Washington to impeach was not you know I was elected in November a special election of twenty sixteenths. I've been there three years. That was not not my first course of action. I would argue. I was driven to that course of action because of certain behavior. I don't disagree with Brian. Brian that Polit that the process has eroded for lotteries. There's no question and also participated dissipated in impeachment at a state level to all you may remember the Supreme Court justice. Yes that we did it in Harrisburg. So I'm I'm aware with it. You don't believe that is something you take lightly so let me be very clear. I don't believe you take it lightly but I do believe so. The most proudest title is not congressman. Citizen that is the most prowse title. You have open enrollment Oma coming up and that means you have the ability to operate and I think there should be a serious discussion about this so Jeffrey. That's why what better place to have. That didn't have the sears discussion. Because something is not right you can look at the Mullahs report. Jim Komi Komi. You could just go down laundry lists and you could debate about if that is peach. Impeachable and removal movable. But we in the house can't do that anyway. There's a Senate. They have to take picture. So when you're there Jeffrey in my view you look you evaluate you. Look at the information that's provided to you in and you take the course of action because you know Ben Franklin made the statement is a monarchy or a republic. And what I understand this is. I've been around around. Liuhua was in the same position. Ben Franklin had I used to have just on three hundred years different dream Ben. Franklin and infrequent was chairman of the ways and means at the Pennsylvania. I was chairman of the Appropriations Committee. I was born in the hospital. That ben Franklin unfound so no a little bit about that so I don't take it lightly so I don't disagree with what Ryan is saying but accountability Ability Accountability Santi tell take lightly Democrat or Republican. And that's a strong feel about in this particular situation. That's what I hear in the Third Congressional district on. Those is the Bluest of the blue districts but then people got a right to so I mean here Ryan saying that but I just say that this is one time I think the particular cases. Thank you so much for that. Thank you really for reminding all of us of the purpose of this convenient friends fellow citizens the congressman said. You have the most important job and what we're GONNA do at the end of this forum. Obviously I should've thought at the beginning you're going to vote and you're gonNa vote about whether or not you think based on the facts and the law that you've heard heard that you think that the president should be impeached. But I want you to think about listening to the rest of the discussion with a very open mind because I'm also going to ask you. Who changed his or in her mind based on the facts or the constitutional law that you heard in the course of this discussion so open yourself up to the possibility of reaching a conclusion which differs from your her from your political or partisan views so with that in mind lets us the rest of our time to again appeal to our fellow citizens? So so congressman you said your fellow fellow. Republicans should take the process seriously. You now know a lot of facts. We know what the standards for impeachment are. If you're comfortable doing so so why don't you tell our fellow citizens whether or not you think I'm the facts in the long. The president should be impeached. I think the I do think that the facts in evidence as I understand them do reis level impeachment. I'd look this perspective. At a member of the House of Representatives senators used his or her office to solicit a foreign leader to investigate it political opponents. I serve on the Appropriations Committee and and by the away. If you don't do that you know that that aid that we send you I'll put a legislative hold on it and it were publicly revealed. I suspected Department of Justice. Just be crawling up that members backside right now but and by the same token also said I saw the same thing with the Clinton impeachment and having been a again chairman the Ethics Committee Committee. I was involved with resignations and members. I know how that goes but I always said you know from. Every male member of Congress had done in his office with a female intern with Bill Clinton in did and it Republican discovered that member of Congress. He'd be out of office by the end of the day guarantee you and I believe me. I've seen these types of things in enforced. I so bottom line is based on this evidence you cannot use your office a quid pro quo but forget about the quid pro quo for one second. Just the act of asking foreign leader to interfere in the campaign by itself is a very serious issue that by itself. Now when when you say and if you don't do that then I'm going to hold up. Four hundred million four million dollars in military assistance. Well now you've got a bigger problem so based on that. I think it's a it's a a quite serious. And based on the witness testimony I've seen so far from businessmen and hill and Taylor. They all seem to be corroborating. What each other I've said so I think it's a pretty powerful argument? It's pretty hard to argue against it now. That said I'm not. I'm not always sure the Democrats should pull the trigger here. Do they really want to have a partisan impeachment. Yeah I mean that's that might not be something they want to do at the end of the day but I think this just based on the facts and the evidence you do that but if you're a Republican member you're in a Ruby Red district in northern Alabama you know eighty percent of your constituents your car. Don't you dare impeach the president no matter what the evidence says what do you do. It's a political decision. Split decision is going to not going to happen. powerful reminder that you reach reach a decision based on the facts and the law but then as representative. You have to make the political decision because it's a mix of politics and the constitution congresswoman. Same to you. You're you're making your appeal to our fellow citizens but as a member of the district committee you will be perhaps helping to draft articles of impeachment so in the course of your your or your address maybe tell us how how you would You know what the charges would be. We've heard charges of solicitation simply asking for foreign aid. We've heard a charge of bribery itself offering something of value to Ukraine in exchange for something of value namely only the investigation there have been charges of obstruction by refusing to cooperate with Congress. What articles do you imagine most persuasive? and which ones would you support support. I think that is one of the questions here. I mean we have an embarrassment of riches from which to select and that is part of the problem you know I I agree with Professor Malcolm that you know. We have elections for one purpose but then we also have impeachment for another purpose and so I may not agree with with for example the president's morals or his policy choices but those are things that would be dealt with through the electoral system but the concern in the impeachment process. This is are we seeing behavior that is eroding our government we heard about eroding the power of the executive but on judiciary. I've had a front row seat seat to the erosion of the powers of Congress. Not just the ways that Congress may have let its power slip away through war powers resolutions and that kind of thing but through an and as I.

"I did the same thing with Jim Komi Komi to publicly say that the president was under investigation. He did it with rod Rosenstein while trying to get Rosenstein to have a press conference. According to motor report and say that it was his idea essentially to fire combing. Correct. We also know from the Muller report that the president asked Corey moon, douse g- is former campaign manager to ask Jeff Sessions to say that something favorable to the president about the Russia investigation and the spirit possible conspiracy between the campaign and Russian officials that also didn't happen. We know that the president wanted Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer and fixer to stay sort of within his world and not say anything critical in October operate with the thirties. When Michael Cohen pleaded guilty. That was when the president Brandon the quote unquote ranch. So this we've seen this over and over again again refused to do this. Do you think it's all connected to the attempt by the White House to prevent against has thrown in front of congress? I don't think that you can look at it. As unrelated, I can't speak to their mindset. But it certainly worth noting the context that the White House has asserted executive privilege over the report that they invoked privilege did not assert it in terms of the the documents that Mcgann has and the testimony that congress wanted from him both documents and testimony. They have told him not to comply with the subpoena that he was issued and mcgann's view is I understand it. From people close to him is that the White House was the client. He's not an opposition to violate that either. You know, the president has to waive privilege or a court has to order Mcgann to comply. But I don't think you can you know, take away the fact that the White House was asking again to issue. This statement saying he didn't obstruct Justice at a time when congress is eagerly looking for mcgann's testimony Mcgann is a key witness in the Muller case. And this will now at another question if he ever does appear before congress that he'll be asked go actually, it was interesting during the president's of talks to reporters today. He said something that kind of I think or actually it was yesterday. I'm sorry. He said something that he used a word that he doesn't normally use it. I in in reference to obstruction. I just want to play this. I didn't have to give them a document. I gave them one point five million documents. I gave them White House counsel. I gave them other law. Anybody you want you can talk to at the end of the testimony, no collusion, and essentially, no obstruction. I think it's the first time I've heard him say, essentially, no obstruction. I don't know. If is really a big deal at all. But it's just interesting that that whether you know, he meant it or not he usually just says, no obstruction. He's definitely now. Putting an asterisk on it. Let's see if he continues to do that. Maggie haberman. Thanks very much up next. We'll get more reaction on the breaking news from the president's former White House strategist Steve Bannon, also get his take on the administration's tactics on requests from house. Democrats also tonight with another town grieving after deadly school shooting me to couple who travel the country on a mission to help survivors of.

"For the roses in the Kentucky Derby or for president of the United States, and you break the rules by cheating by obstructing obstructing the other races or racers. Or the inquiry into what you did in one case after you get caught obstructing their consequences. So for the first time in the history of the Kentucky Derby, the horse across the my first has been disqualified after the objection country health wins the Kentucky Derby that from the TV broadcast on Saturday consequences for a horse. Ironically, named maximum security in the other case, not so much after carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report and in consultation with the office of legal counsel and other department lawyers, the deputy attorney general, and I concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of Justice offense attorney generally embar for much twenty eighth despite ten instances of obstructive behaviour cited by the mother report that bar did not cite that day before the public saw them. And then. Your Muller, and you write a letter, and you have a phone call with bars saying his presentation did not give the proper context intent of your report, and then your bar, and you're before congress knowing about that letter and phone call the public doesn't know and you get asked. Bob muller. Support your conclusion, I don't know whether Bob Muller supported my conclusion, you have that letter and phone call. But you say, you don't know if he supported your conclusion is that perjury. And you'd like to converse and anybody else did that it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States and not the attorney general speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi on Friday. So congress is trying to sort it all out and the president says he will try to block all subpoenas for more information. How about that Madam speaker? I think that the statements being made by the president of the United States is given a blanket statement that he's not going to any subpoena is obstruction of Justice. I think that all many of the statements that the that the administration has made has been obstruction of answers. We are in a very very very challenging likes Nancy Pelosi on Friday, by the way, the president as you may have heard has tweeted that the Kentucky Derby winner should not have been disqualified for his obstruction. Trump said the finding of obstruction was too politically correct with us now Chuck Rosenberg former chief of staff to Jim Komi Komi was. FBI director former counsel to Robert Muller Muller, FBI director and various other Justice department leadership roles under President George W Bush and Barack Obama he is currently adjunct professor at Georgetown and an MSNBC legal analyst, and he's just launched a new podcast from MSNBC called the oath. His first two guests have been calling me and the former US attorney from here in New York. Pre Pereira Chuck enjoy analysis on television. It's pleasure to have you. Welcome to WNYC, Brian. Thank you so much for having them. I'm really glad to be with your horse racing fan. Not at all not even a little bit. Then I won't ask you about the Kentucky Derby. We can always talk about the nationals. They didn't get disqualified quite yet. But let me start with a really big picture question. Seriously, the president and his team emphasize that after a two year investigation sparked by suspicions that the Trump campaign was collaborating with Russia, a hostile state Muller looked into it. And concluded he could not establish such a crime. The president's people would say keep your eye on the ball. Good baseball phrase. That was always the ball collusion quote unquote, conspiracy collaboration with Russia. Anything else has details. How much do you look at it that way or not? Well, if you read volume one of the mole report and folks should Brian because it's extraordinarily compelling Muller. Did not find that the evidence established at any Americans conspired with the Russians but in terms of an effort by Russia to interfere in the election. It's a massive interference. And there's two hundred plus pages of the report that detail that so people ought to be really concerned about what what about what Russia did. And by the way, there's plenty of links to Americans he just didn't establish a criminal conspiracy. So I don't know that it's anything to the president or his team to celebrate did your old boss. Bob Muller surprise, or disappoint you at all in not finding criminal conspiracy with Russia or declaring one way or another obstruction of Justice. Let me break that down. So he didn't surprise or disappoint me because he's the straightest straight shooter. I know. And if Bob Mueller says that the evidence didn't establish a conspiracy on conspiracy with Russia than the evidence didn't establish it on the second volume of the report on whether or not the president obstructed Justice. I think Muller was in a bind, and it's a little bit complicated. But I'm happy to explain it if you'd like to please. Sure. So there is existing department of Justice policy, Brian that says you can't charge a sitting president. What's just accept that value? Whether you like it or not for a moment but accepted at face value. And if you can't charge a sitting president and the rationale for that is you don't want to burden the president or stigmatize the presidency. Then you can't recommend charging a sitting president flus exact same reasons burden and stigma. And so I think that's what Muller was up against that existing policy didn't permit him to charge and therefore didn't permit him to recommend charging. But if you put that policy aside, if you just look at the acts that are detailed in volume to the mall report, there is a remarkably compelling case for -struction of Justice, in your opinion, did attorney general bar commit a crime by lying to congress or speaker Pelosi overreaching there on a matter of mere political spin by Trump appointee. Do the former prosecutor that. I was I don't have all the evidence yet. I mean, I think it's important that we hear from bar if bar and I'm sorry for Muller. Excuse me. If Muller and bar had a conversation. We've heard now bars, and then we need to hear Muller's and of it. So I don't, you know, easily or quickly leap to the notion that someone committed a crime, I think there's more facts on earth. And I think it's important to hear from Bob Muller. Do you have any doubt that we the American people will hear from Bob Muller? They're talking about may fifteenth, which is just next week as a date for him to testify bar has said he has no objection to Muller testify, boss still technically his supervisor. But we don't know what kind of machinations are going on behind the scenes to actually prevent it. That's right. So I imagine we will hear from Bob Muller. But there's a complication there too. I'm sorry to keep introducing complications you and I can talk about it. On the phone now. No one can prevent me from talking to you on your show. And I'm grateful that you would have me on. But I can't talk about classified information. I gleaned in the course of my government work. I can't talk about grand jury matters and Muller can testify. But there may be things that are off limits. You can't ever talk about certain things that you did or learned in government. And so, you know, will he testify I presume so can't he answer every single question. That's asked of him. Probably not let's nurse. Our guest is Chuck Rosenberg. If you watch MSNBC see him there, sometimes has a legal analyst. He now has a podcast from MSNBC called the oath on which he has so far interviewed his old boss, Jim Komi and former US attorney from here in New York. Pre para Chuck Rosenberg has been chief of staff to call me when Kelly was FBI director and to Robert Muller Muller was FBI director a phone number two one two four three three. WNYC two one two four three three nine six nine two. So let me ask you another legal questions since the focus now is on whether the president committed obstruction based on the ten instances documented in the mother report the president's team emphasizes that for all those tenants than ses the ones that everybody's focusing on were never carried out. He asked on Mcgann to do things. He s Corey douse. Go do things he has KT McFarland to do things that all might have actually been obstruction of Justice. But they never did those things for the president. And then the president didn't just do them himself so obstruction hopes. Yes. Obstruction requests. Yes. But no actual obstructive acts. How much do you buy that? Or not. Well, I think is a legal matter that's flat out wrong. And here's why Brian magin you and I were under investigation, and you were asked to give evidence about me. And I asked you to lie the FBI or destroy, you know, our emails or destroy your hard drive, and you simply didn't do that. I've still destructive Justice. He just didn't help me. And the statue. Let's be really clear it's eighteen United States code section. Fifteen three requires an endeavor to impede or impair the due administration of Justice and endeavor doesn't require success. Another example, you're a witness against me. And I shoot at you in order to kill you and prevent you from testifying, but I miss that's an obstruction of Justice. It's also whole bunch of other crimes too, by the way. So the notion that he failed is completely unavailing. Let's call here is Scott in Brooklyn, Scott, you're on WNYC with Chuck Rosenberg. Good morning. Good morning. I it's an honor to share the air with both of you. I was talking to a friend this weekend. And we're pulling our hair out to say, how can the Justice department and bar be compelled to Congress's bidding. Well, so Scott that's a hard question of a good one, but hard one normally, you know, there is a tension between the branches of government and often you resolve it through some accommodation. Meaning let's say congress wants to hear from three witnesses and the Justice department or the executive branch is willing to give them to or they want, you know, certain documents, but they get a more limited pool. So historically, it's been done through accommodation. If they have to litigate these things if the department of Justice or the executive branch decide to fight congressional subpoenas in court, it could take a really long time, and that could be part of the strategy by the executive branch to sort of slow roll congress. So tough question with imperfect answers, here's something that speaker Pelosi said about that question or something very close to it in her news conference. On Friday, as you probably know on the articles of impeachment of for president Nixon. Article three was that. He ignored the subpoenas of Khan said he did not honor the subpoenas this. Is there a very serious? What do you make of that historical comparison Chuck well fair enough? I mean, congress always has that power. It's a constitutional power to impeach. It doesn't require the executive branches permission to open impeachment proceedings that said, you know, in order to impeach and remove a president from office, you need to house to do the first thing impeach and the Senate to do the second thing remove and that seems to me to be highly unlikely. Breaking news. Just in the last few minutes about the house saying there will be a committee vote on Wednesday to hold attorney general bar in contempt of congress. If he doesn't by then turn over the full unredacted Mullah report.

"To meet with the North Korean leader. I mean should the mullahs report come out while he's out mean, I don't pretend that you. Oh, I'm done. I got to submit it. There's no deadline, obviously, it wouldn't have been a two year deadline. I'll tell you that many people think it would be good have lasted eight months, but it's lasted almost two complete years. That'll be totally up to the new attorney general. He's a tremendous man. A tremendous. Person who really respects this country and respectfully Justice department. So that'll be totally up to him. The new attorney general. Yeah. In the the accusations are flying left and right that this is this will be the beginning of an impeachment hearing. We don't know exactly the form that the Muller report will have some say it's going to come out piece by piece is used to be the first piece what a waste that would be. We already got piece by piece that's ongoing indictments of Russians that will never becoming stateside or never face any type of scrutiny. There's the role Adamo Lieutenant General Michael Flynn who evidently was in candidate B I agents, but neither was Anne McCabe. He seems fine. At a book doesn't seem to your problem with that we know about all the problems Paul Manafort had almost all of that happened before he got there. Rick gates has cut a deal. We know that Michael Cohen this come out foul. A foul of the wrong side of the law. A multiple multiple different facets not only for his relationship with Trump afford, defrauding the government and tax violations. Everything like that. So there are people that were involved in they'd got caught up the last two years. For the United States TD ever. Got subpoenaed by the council he did answer some questions, but the question for him be obstruction conspiracy collusion. I think that he is clean on all counts. But ham handed on all to you would think someone who might be under scrutiny for for involvement where Russia would keep Russia ten feet away when go near anything positive rush. Instead, he's had meetings with Putin with anybody around which I don't think anything happens specifically. But I don't know why even be open to that type of scrutiny because he's Donald Trump. Ari Fleischer cut nine. The Andy McCabe FBI wasn't protect James call me FBI at all costs. They were blindly loyal to Jim Komi Komi got fired a mildly critical things about Komi Anne Anne McCabe. I was literally in a FBI car on my way to the event. Mckay told the car to drop me off that's any McCain for you. And this is a whole reflection of the top leadership of the FBI. So any McCabe is convinced. If you listen to his interviews, he's convinced the president's compromised by Russia, a Russian asset, please. I mean, leave that for other channels and leave that for the irrational and the Trump blind hatred, but franey McCabe as deputy director and former acting director to continue to say these things while knowing that he is a flawed agent. That's been caught three times lying and leaking to the press. He said he was authorized the problem is the guy who would authorize it says he has no recollection and never authorized it, but he doesn't blame. James call me for not remembering that, he authorize it because he was under stress that type of stress, I believe Lieutenant General Michael Flynn might have been under a seat. Tries to get stand up in administration about to take over the most powerful country in the world. So any McCabe has his rollout. Robber mowers about to have his rollout. Ever. The president is about to bug out and go to Vietnam to meet with North Korean leader. It's an incredible cycle of news events. But the bigger question is if you got to continue to sit there and say became book is gospel. And his words matter then look at the president's words and actions where is he cow. Dowd outside Helsinki, which was bad optics. Where's he cowed to Russia when he backed out of the missile agreement so Putin he says that if we put missiles and start upgrading our missile program? They're going to put missiles in aim them. At major American cities was the president kowtowing to Russia when he decided to do everything possible to recognize the opposing government the Russia supported in Venezuela. Lake pointed out, where's the evidence? Andy, McCabe, cut seven the initial theory was that there was a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to distribute steal the emails from the NC and John Podesta, and there was coordination in some ways with the Trump campaign to help Russia influence the election. Well, you know, I think most people believe that the Russians certainly tried to influence the election, and but the other part of that, which is that coordination not only hasn't been proven. According to the indictment of Roger stone. They didn't know what we're in the emails that Roger stone was trying to figure it out from WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign and asked Roger stone to find out what was in emails, if they were coordinating don't you think why would they have to go to Julian Assange? I'm ju I know it's getting a lot. And I know you sick of it. But I'm so excited. It's about to come to a close. I'm so excited to roll out those democratic talking points when they say Robert Bulwer, how dare the United States tweeted Robert more, call it a witch hunt. How dare the president be critical? Robert muller. He's beyond reproach. If you don't get what you want now, democrat or anti is out of Republicans at are. Then what I know exactly say, Adam Schiff the ball is yours. So with less resources less skill. And more money. You're going to do it further investigation. Hopefully, the American people will look at that and say that is a total colossal waste. You don't deserve the house that we gave you what I think that bothers me most about Anne McCabe role app. Let's say he believes what he believes. And let's say he says he's worried about the president blowing up institutions at matter in this country and break, the fabric of our nation and the constitution what about eighty McCabe blowing up the one group that's been critical of him. Formerly the independent apolitical inspector general hired by President Obama who has never I'd far as I could tell Michael Horowitz has never met President Trump. But it was that pressure. That allowed them to come to the conclusion that Andy McCabe is corrupt cut for. I have deep and substantive disagreements with.

"Obama lied about it no thing if I now if he didn't know his administration and people behind the scene certainly knew because they had a white list that folks the line to circle back as question number two. Did Hillary Email Obama? Why was it removed? The first draft said Hillary emailed Obama from a foreign adversary. The second Email the second version of the July fifth speech said that she emailed a quote senior government official. The third draft that finally made it onto TV made no reference at all of that. Why? I'm going to tell you why right now somebody got to Comi and someone else and told them this severity of what was going on, ladies and gentlemen, number one the white list number two the potential for blackmail, somebody in the Obama administration who's claiming they had no knowledge whatsoever. Until the media ports came out about Hillary's, Email is lying. Remember that duck tales episode where they get the harp. You're li- like I used to watch. Duck tales when I was a kid. I know aging myself a little bit here for some of your duck tells I was a cartoon, but. Daffy duck. It is grits. Scrooge mcduck. Yeah. Scrooge. That was member this when no where's that three dog night play that again one more time core? Somebody's lying. Commes lying either about not knowing commes lying about the reasons he took it out Obama's team has to be lying about the knowledge Hillary's Email and the potential for the Russians having sensitive emails is very real. It's gyp Komi ever gonna fess up to you understand. How important his show is folks the questions for Jim Komi Komi is the linchpin this whole thing. I know why you hit it. You hate it. Because you used friendly's the spy on Americans that Hillary Email Obama the answer is yes where from Russia. Well, Jim don't you think that created bribery material the same case you guys used against Mike Flynn? Oh, and by the way, how does that explain away Obama's blackberry and a white list? How did Hillary's private E mail get through? Ooh. Now, you see why Komi wants it all out in public for transparency? Because what does he want to say to Joe his answers to questions one or two? We're going to be I can't talk about that with the cameras on. Phony big phony. It's why the UK in Australia's are in a paddock right now. This supposed to be our friends. They didn't do anything wrong. I thought the right member they tax against Trump. What are you worried about the Russian collusion probe? Joe do didn't do anything wrong with the Democrats say Trump all the time. What are you worried about? You. Don't do anything wrong writes, what's the problem? Whatever you listen. I love our friends, the citizens of the United Kingdom and Australia. I traveled to a stray. It was awesome. I had the best time ever bond, I beach. It was great. I went to camp Beira ever. I went all over the place. It is a beautiful place. I don't take this as a knock on your country at all it's not they're just like in the United States. There was a select cabal of idiots at the top who made really bad decisions in our name and us as citizens have the right to ask the darn questions that get the answers both here in the United States and over there too. Don't they were supposed to be friends? Not political opposition research tools. And if the Trump administration did the same thing, you're darn right? I call it out to nothing frightens me more than police. They power I told you the story at thousand times when you are a member of the state when you are a law enforcement official like I was at the state and federal level is a secret service, and you put the handcuffs on someone and you change their whole life, and you watch their kids crying and wife knows their life is over. I don't care how bad they are. If you have an ounce, of empathy in your heart. You feel I was watching live PD this weekend and these two cops in South Carolina. They pull over this guy that I love that show PD, so great they pull over the sky. He's got packets a SOX and lotions. He it's pretty clear from the thing that there's at least the the hint that he may have stolen them. So what does the cop? Do he goes back to the Walgreens that it was stolen pays for the items?.

"Yeah, you can't. You can't continue, but at least you do it the pirates city bore With with the the pirates pirates. you get where I'm going with this. This is a massive scale that was a huge revelation on Wednesday. Again, the only reason I kind of held it for day or two, not Sarah again. Great. It's just I wanted to make sure I could reasonably explain it to you would be comfortable knowing that. There's other stuff going on. Now. Here's the other angle to it that I was kinda holding. Price step who's a member you have call me director, McCabe deputy price, step right underneath him, and then stroke them that he then price step. Appears in a press release, not that long ago about a pretty significant criminal Intel operation. The FBI is running. What does that have to do with anything? Well, the second half of that piece Carter brings up an interesting point. She says, I believe against he's quoting citing her sources here that there are people above stroke, and we've narrowed it down to those folks who may in fact be cooperating, how does that relate to Bill price that it was above strokes name appearing on a press release, not that long ago folks. Let me ask you history. Really simple question. You're an FBI high upper level manager, like Bill priced essentially to two steps down from the director, right? You're running the division that investigated Hillary's Email case you're running the division that investigated Donald Trump's case, you've also been involved. At least your name is surfaced in the malfeasance evolved in the case. Do you think the FBI is going to allow your name to appear on a press release. If you were intimately involved in some known criminal activity that was going on right now. I'm just asking folks. I mean, I'm just asking a pretty simple question here, but I think the answer is obvious. The answer is, of course not. I highly suspect as I've said before, too many people multiple times to Joe as well that I'm I'm almost one hundred percent confident that price that is still there because he's providing some information on the entire operation. Now, think about that. This is the guy to steps down from Jim Komi Komi McCabe price step and he also supervised Peter stroke. How incredible would it be? If this guy's providing information to a grand jury, on the case on both McCabe stroke, this guy is the meat in the sandwich. He's got McCabe. He's got stroke below him. This is perfect. You can't get any better than this. That is the guy you want. If there's anybody you want, that's the guy you want folks. You want Bill price step to talk. And the fact again, just to be crystal clear the fact to be crystal clear here that his name. Appeared on a press release. That the case the FBI is working right now says to me that there's no chance in hell that this guy isn't cooperating right now. I would be absolutely astonished if he wasn't. All right. Let's see. We got a lot to get through today. So that's an important point. There are second second thing I wanted to bring up. Devon, newness Nunez has been all over the news and Nunez has been talking about. The the the case, and he keeps saying how there's a, there's bigger bombs yet to drop here and at the insurance policy basically may not be what we think it is now, Jeff Carlson who does some terrific work over at the times over there.

"WCBS eighty and you can get to match wits. With c. would Dr louver. And I understand that the Bonet economist Dr Mike. Allen's playing today all right Tell him he's not eligible for the Glenn Miller stuff because he'd been salivating over that for weeks now. All right All right The president out tweeting. About arrow so this is going to send them screaming into. The night listen to this President Trump tweeting just minutes ago when you give a crazed crying low-life a break and give her a job at the. White House I guess it just didn't work out good work by general Kelly for quickly firing. That dog Now now the battle of the dog naming the date and name calling because. It was not too long ago just. A few days or so ago I think I'm Rosa Said that Trump was like a dog off the leash right so. It's the war of words is on. Now that's for sure Peter Struck out fired, canned shown, the door finally, time it is about time is right what took so long that, is the question, that, everybody's asking President Trump writing on Twitter. Finalist of bad players in the FBI DOJ gets longer and longer and Rudy says, okay? It's time to end this whole nonsense we think. It should end Invested absolutely should be terminated he. Should put out his. Report tell the American people what he, has and, they can evaluate, they're entitled to this information before you shouldn't hold it and try, to manipulate the, election, the way Komi did I don't think. He wants to do that He also called on an, investigation of the investigation right now being investigation of Komi. Muller and the whole group quarrels. Investigation the investigation absolutely I mean let's go back to the beginning of it. Begins for the phony dossier. Struck Horowitz report which basically casts, all kinds of doubt on what happened with Hillary and then those people will transform to the counterintelligence investigation it never produces a darn thing I am now convinced that the. Initiation of the independent counsel is totally illegal Totally illegal at one more, this is really on FOX and friends yesterday regarding old. Former FBI director Jim Komi Komi. Says he told me to see if I could give him a break basically So we have three defenses. To that under article two of. The constitution you can't really question why the president would say power to say it number, two What he was saying is perfectly justifiable he. Didn't say you must, have to fire you if you don't he said consider it number three he never. Said so those are the three defenses to this, go easy on Flynn, which is the obstruction of Justice allegation that Muller may or may not be pursuing Well as far. As as far as, ending this whole thing with Muller sessions could actually do that if you wanted to Because he hasn't recused himself from that you know from the from that I mean if sessions He recused himself. From, all things Russian well? What would you include which includes Muller Muller is look. What he's, doing now I mean, he's, gone well beyond right but Rosenstein is. One that appointed Muller he's the one that could get rid of molar unless you get, rid of sessions, sessions then gets a whoever replaces sessions gets rid of Rosenstein and then that person would be the one that. Could get rid of they're not even, talking? About, Hillary Clinton right they're they're basically all it's all about Trump. And obstruction of Justice those sessions didn't recuse himself from that aspect of this whole, thing because he's scared stiff and missing in action according to, the, to. The president, sleepy Jeff As, we've got him really? Also dropped the bomb last night on Sean Hannity when. Hannity asked, him do you see, any, crimes here Rudy quote absolutely I just. Told you on the perjury on the affidavit I was telling you about Hillary crimes a, year before Komi, outline them all she got off at a fixed investigation run by Peter Struck the dossier has obtained the day. That they dropped the case against Hillary, I'm? Gonna, tell you who orchestrated who was the quarterback for all this. It isn't just struck he's a bit of a puppet it's not just molar he's, a puppet and who's he talking about no John the drone, ranger Brennan Should come before a grand jury according to Rudy Giuliani he should face the grand jury over this Russia probe handling. Now it could have been doing Obama's dirty work form deniability I'll take. The fall Mr President, but John Brennan right now is. The guy that is in the crosshairs and should be fully was? Who, who was John Brennan's boss Clearly that. Would have been Barack Obama right, so we're going up the ladder while he could say that the president or anything about it I did this on my own well We don't. Know but that's the big question here also Bill Nelson who's in trouble, in Florida Ryan's. Rick Scott he's gone a. Remarkably silent, amid the charges of fabricating a Russian hacking claim these are thus far, up, had claims that Russian, operatives have, already compromised the Florida elections he's trying to scare people and, again the jaw judges ruled that the more investigation is. Legal can continue judge Dabney Friedrich rejected those claims brother, Levin and others had mentioned about the. Appointments clause of the constitution no word on whether that will be appealed or not and the prosecution has rested in the Paul Manafort case the defense begins today at nine thirty there's one other, item? I wanted to share with you on that is a newly released records and a pattern of. Efforts by Hillary Clinton operatives employed. By Kremlin linked figures to connect the Trump campaign, to Russia now indicate the infamous Trump Tower meeting between a Russian lawyer and Trump campaign staff including Donald junior. May have been, a setup it may have been. Orchestrated by the, Russians to set Trump up, getting dirt, on. Hillary Clinton so that they could gain access to the to the Trump campaign's.

"And not all of you have read the book so look jim komi was my boss for time jim comey was my colleague jim komi komi someone when i worked in the senate i arranged and set up the hearing where he testified about the hospital incident back in two thousand seven the incident happened in two thousand four and so i had great respect for him and i have a relationship with him that should be disclosed unlike sean hannity doesn't disclose his relationships so so take what i say with for what it's worth i appreciate that there are people who think jim committed mistake and i appreciate people who think that he may not have but the thing that i think is true is that a lot of people decide to like or hate someone in this country based on whether or not their actions caused some political consequence that they want or that they agree with i don't know that you need to like a guy or not like a guy sort of understand what went on you can forward your criticisms of the letter that was sent right before the election eve of the election that maybe had some impact on the election probably did have some impact on the election my only speak with people who criticize jim and there's there's there's a lot of legitimate basis to criticize what he did and i i respect and i share some of those views but i don't think that he's a liar and i don't think that he did the things he did because you wanted some particular political outcome to happen there has been some discussion about one of the things he said maybe in our fully or maybe wrongly about how would you thinking in the back of his mind.
"jim komi komi" Discussed on Pod Save America
"You know your your son's baked potato side-by-side next thing you know and I dream about this ad copy ladies and gentlemen please welcome John John Tommy Dan reports say the Barracuda Guys Los Angeles all right I felt like a plant guys that we have a great show mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti is here okay so big week awful week crazy week let's get into it no it's actually pretty good information's coming out we like that Jim Komi has received it's great so we were talking about how to start tonight and we were going to start with Komi and talk about the meeting and the memos and all that and we realized that the day before the Komi story there was another story about the president casually divulging classified information to a foreign sorry just during a chat in the Oval Office so I think we should probably start their standard was that I'm getting was that one where he was joking where he taped it didn't happen where it's not a big deal or where it's a liberal conspiracy theory I all of the above I think yeah was it didn't happen it was fake news it was disloyal leaking hodge just kidding and he did it on purpose the those are the guys relaxed so tell me you handled classified information when you worked at the National Security Council what happened here and how bad how bad was it so I think I know is that a lot of the until we get is not necessarily collected by the CIA or the NSA or the US it's collected by partners the okay the Mossad in Israel other liaison services they do a lot of work we share intelligence and we do it under certain unwritten rules that if we give you the intelligence you can't divulge it to other without permission so according to news reports the Israelis gave us information about a plot to take down airliners by putting bombs and laptops and they got it from a source reassuming human source that they have inside Isis that is our best source about external plots on Isis period trump decided to brag about how great his in tell is even though it's not his intelligence services just someone fuck and told him like everything else in the world and he told Lab Rosser Day Laverov and Kislyak the ambassador Search Russia this kiss I have a dual role yeah he is he p is thought to be a spy as well advanced by into the Oval Your shares secrets and so then they go report back to one thousand Russian goons who can reverse engineer what they learned and could blow the source so trump's own staff was so worried about the fact that he divulged information that they call the NSA and the CIA to warn them so we could have gotten the most important source on isis plotting killed out of a bad thing but the bigger problem is like the United States has such poor judgment that he would brag about this stuff in a meeting with an adversary which should make you about basically any conversation he has with anyone 'cause I can't imagine anyone worse to just spout off about intelligence to than the Russian ambassador so here's my question like the Russians we all know interfere in our election they launched a cyber attack against the United States why did they get a meeting with Donald trump in the Oval Office in the first place I think that question answers itself it has we'll look does everyone does anyone know the answer Putin asked trump for the favor it's a favor in return Putin was like Hoon's like they're coming to Washington he's in town meeting with Tillerson the secretary of state would you also mind meeting with them in the and he said sure I just this is the second biggest story this week it could be like the third or fourth by now it's it's barely at the top of the websites it's fallen down the Info and I saw the explanations I said no the story is not true right completely false Washington Post story is not true which is weird because the Washington Post and the New York times purposely decided to withhold information that because it was so sensitive so they didn't want to publish it in the paper the news media basically had more they were more careful and trump was yes they treated codeword level intelligence which is so secret that it's above top secret it's literally compartments read into these various codeword election whatever channels of information that are held with tight little circles and the Washington Post was Bor- treated with more respect than the present united so I mean obviously it is we should say it's legal right what the president did because the president can always do gasify information he can declassify whatever he wants whenever he wants usually goes through a process where the intelligence community reviews all the information figures out what sources and methods could be jeopardized what the various equities are and then you then you proceed uh-huh perceived we've done a number of times it just shows incredibly poor judgment on the on the part of the president yeah well one thing that was interesting is obviously the trump White House leaks constantly to the Russians about the Russians leaks about leaks there's also a story about how the White House meeting where they're all yelling at each other about this was audible to report there's which was them not protecting information about protecting information about non protecting information so your head explodes until your head explodes but one of the stories that people on the inside were saying that they weren't actually allowed to tell the truth about what happened which is trump really couldn't leak that sensitive and couldn't do it on purpose because he reads too quickly and he's not smart or worse with it enough to keep up with the information but they use that as an excuse like give him a break he's not he's not smart enough to know he's just a dotty old racist in decline so that's not good second biggest story week related to that did you read the story of the NFC now Security Council who with light trump to read the readings have now started inserting his name in a more paragraphs yeah because he only reads the parts about him yes I it was like more pictures more charts more trump name double as forty eight font it just needs to be a glossy headshot that says don't mention Isis to the Russians it comes up with like an eighty nine percent approval rating keep up the good work boss Nail Netzer we have the latest Rasmi numbers here so as the staff cleaning this mess up and this is leading all the all the news reports the New York Times Michael Schumacher your times reports yesterday at like five o'clock that Jim Komi Komi has kept memos all of his interactions with Donald Trump. Yeah this is applause for Jim Komeda parts of America and I want to be very clear about something I was right about the whole Goddamn love that guy very tall very very trustworthy challenge anyone to do search operation. I'm love it's tweets you will you will find consistency of a gym Komi that's how consistent with the rock solid integrity of Jim Comey so let's review what happened okay sure on very thirteenth donald trump's batch it crazy national security adviser General Michael Flynn who we now know tonight this broke like Origo who Donald Trump knew at the time was under federal investigation and he was under federal investigation because he was paid by Turkey who was a lobbyist for the Turkish government and national security adviser he delayed an attack on Isis because the Turkish government wanted him to nope bad bad so on February Thirteenth Flynn resigns because there was a report that he lied to Vice President Pence about the nature of his conversations with the Russian ambassador that he did during the transition so flynn's gone the next day Jim Komi happens to have a meeting in the Oval Office at the end of the meeting trump's sends jeff sessions attorney general and and pence out of the office talk to my friend Jim go get a coke and he says Flynn I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go blending Flynn go he is a good guy I hope you can let this go like he was greasing a Jersey City councilman I hope we can look past these Osha violations eh fucking clown the I do we need a ramp or do you need the suitcase full of money James Comey the best now is the staff and some Republicans and say oh he was just joking because usually when you tell a joke you're like okay I need everyone to leave the room I have something really funny you would say to tell the FBI director I would say trump's defense it doesn't seem like Jeff sessions or Mike Pence a very good sense of humor well the thing that sucks pence pens and sessions were outside the Oval Office turbine like why are they laughing what's so funny sounds like it must have been really funny joke so this seems like obstruction of justice it seems like the president is very clearly impeding investigation a federal investigation like I said we know all this you know why we knew he would take notes Jim Komi became famous because he got in a huge fight with the Bush White House because he didn't want to renew the warrantless surveillance program the Bush administration he rushed to John Ashcroft side in a hospital room and force them to stop the Bush Whitehouse denied this in Jim Kolbe won the PR war because he contemporaneous notes this was very easy to know in predict Jim Komi is fantastic here's the thing guys here's the thing about Jim Komi you understand the guy bats a fucking thousand he is always to the had we've always lived pro flowers on this always loved flowers look what is it Jim Komi as far as I'm concerned has made one mistake which was sending a cataclysmic letter that did change the course of history you put that aside perfect and you know it's been a lifetime ago on Monday when we were talking about the fact that trump was threatening Jim Komi with tapes what we were saying was like who who do you think loses a tape that's like Donald trump a puts the word tapes in quotation marks a jabbering lunatic who can barely string a sentence other and who commits crimes all the time on purpose and by accident and Jim Cole me the most insufferable man and the worlds who sounds like the federalist papers yeah like who's going to lose that battle so love it on that Monday podcast we talked about are we in impeachment territory right and what we were talking about then was trump telling lesser holt oh no I didn't fire him because he treated hillary badly I fired him because Asia basically so you so he did that he was of course intimidating a witness when he threatened Jim Komi with the tapes and I was saying like this feels like is it obstruction of justice for impeachment and you said we're not there yet it's going to feel different when we're in impeachment territory feel different well and I said that because obstruction of justice any impeachment question is a political question ultimately that's why that's why Bill Clinton gets impeached.
