Jan 6 Committee Holds Its Sixth Hearing

"Is a former aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is sharing some of the conversations she had with a guy I know well, former congressman and former director of national intelligence, John ratcliffe, of Texas, and that it was mister ratcliffe's studied view. As it was many, by the way, that the degree to which the president was banging this drum was just not going to be helpful to his legacy, that it wasn't going to prevail. And if people were of that mind, I mean, okay, isn't it? I mean, from Laura Ingraham, deshaun Hannity, to the Fox host, weren't they all like texting people saying, this is not good. He's not helping himself on like January 6th itself. Which I believe is true. That was not a good day for anybody. However, what this committee and what the culture, I think, seeks to shoehorn into your brain, is that if you have any skepticism about the 2020 result, that's the big lie. That if you

"john ratcliffe" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"So let me ask you this based on what you're saying and you're leaving some crumbs here and I know you have to be careful because you take your classified briefings very seriously. Is it possible that we're talking about a, the word coup could be used or the big T word is sometimes used to take down a duly elected president. I know that this is going to take some speculation, but you know, just help us out here, how big of an operation, how serious of an operation we talk on here, this is beyond just paperwork or lying to federal agents. Am I right? Right. Well, the best way I would describe it is it was a coordinated political effort. And I think different people involved had different motivations, but at the end of the day, it was to influence the outcome of a presidential election. And in 2016, they were unsuccessful in ultimately changing the will of the people and the outcome of that election, but to your point before Charlie and your question about why does it matter is if there isn't accountability, it happens again. And that's exactly what happened in 2020. So some of the same people that we've talked about example, Adam Schiff, the head of the democratic head of the intelligence committee in the House, in 2016, he was the one of the ones advocating that there couldn't possibly have been fisa abuse to spy on the Trump campaign that was wrong. He was one of the folks that said, I have evidence of more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between the Trump Kim, Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Of course, none of that was true. So fast forward to 2020, you know, he's one of the folks that perpetrated, you know, when you talk about election influence, it was the Hunter Biden laptop. So to remind folks, the story there, the New York Post breaks the Hunter Biden laptop story on October 15th. The very next day, October 16th, Adam Schiff is out saying, this is a smear campaign by the Kremlin. I have intelligence that this is a Russian disinformation campaign. Now, Charlie, as I heard that on October 16th, 2020, as the head of the intelligence community, I knew that that wasn't true. I needed to Adam Schiff couldn't have any intelligence because the only intelligence he would get would be intelligence I would share with him as the head of the intelligence community and none existed. So I came out on October 18th on Fox and did an interview and said, this isn't Russian disinformation. And that was backed up by the Department of Justice and the FBI who came out the next day and said, we concur with director Radcliffe. This isn't Russian disinformation. The problem is, as you know, Charlie, instead, what happened was a coordinated effort by 50 former national security officials who notwithstanding the head of the intelligence community, the head of the Department of Justice and the head of the FBI all said this is not Russian disinformation. Put on a letter that said, we think this is Russian disinformation and the media ran with it. So, you know, you probably have seen some recent interviews with Bill Barr as he does he's taken his book tour. You know, he's talking about this saying, look, I was dumbfounded that the media didn't cover this in absolutely. It had an impact on the election. Now, none of us can say how many votes and in what states, but that was a concerted political effort to mislead the American people and influence the outcome. And by some of the same folks that tried to do that in 2016. So that's sort of the big picture and why it's important back to seminal question about why is it important that there will be accountability? Why is it important that we hold people and get justice in the end? Because Americans faith and trust in these institutions that we grew up admiring. We grew up admiring FBI agents and thinking they were the good guys and so many Americans have now had their viewpoints turned on its head because of what they've seen and the lack of accountability. And if we don't get if we don't get back to that, those institutions that are there for that were supposedly to protect values like fidelity and bravery and integrity. No one buys that. If these things go unaccounted for. That's really well said. I don't trust anything that these institutions do anymore. In fact, the opposite of trust, I distrust them, and that's sad. I wish I did trust them. Because that's not good for the country. And their willingness to cover it up and to smear and to slander is reprehensible.

What Will Democrats Try to Do to Lessen the Blow of Midterm Elections?

What Will Democrats Try to Do to Lessen the Blow of Midterm Elections?

"So we need to ask ourselves the question, what are Democrats going to try to do coming into November to try and let's say lessen the upcoming loss? I think they know they're going to lose. I think they know the American people are not with them. But that doesn't mean they're just going to accept it. And one of the things I believe they're going to try to do, and this is something to keep your eye on, is not that they're going to try to actually, you know, they're not going to, let's say, unleash something or release it, but they're going to change their messaging. I think specifically around COVID. I would not be surprised around July or August, that you start to see Democrats start to get back into a COVID hysteria posture. Very well could be that they want April May and June and most of July to kind of be going back to how things were. Returned and nostalgia, a mask free indoor dining, let's say, malls are open type America. But if I were the Democrats, and if I was sinister, if I was cruel, if I only cared about power and I was a naked machiavellian, what I would do then in late July and early August is I would, as soon as a certain date hits, let's say July 20th or July 25th, when the news cycle gets very slow, I would push a button and all of a sudden I would get people fearful again. COVID cases are on the rise. Here's the total amount of deaths or whatever sort of metric because because of the abundance of metrics of the ways that we measure COVID, whether it be deaths or whether it be cases or whether it be all these things. They can find a specific number that might be accelerating even though the general trend might be tapering, focus on that trend and make a big deal out of it.

Pilot Announces End of US Mask Mandate Mid-Flight

"Let's go to cut 33, a pilot announces the removal of the mask mandate mid flight cut 33. April 18th, the Biden administration announced that the transportation security administration will no longer enforce the federal mandate requiring mass in all U.S. airports and on foreign aircraft. Finally. Effectively immediately master optional for all airport employees crew members and customers inside U.S. airports and onboard aircraft. Now look, this is what's important though, is that they need at least have the physical costume, if you will, that an emergency is continuing. 90% of cap passengers clapped and screamed in these videos. We can keep playing them. Which really shows the pulse of the population. Now, if the planes were filled with mass proponents, these people would have been crying, it wouldn't really upset. Now, I don't know if you know this, but you know you could still wear a mask, even though it's not mandated. I know that's a shocking thing for people to hear. Do you think they work, then keep wearing a mask? But look, this now shows that the emergency is over and to this wonderful judge. Catherine Kimball mizelle, to her great credit. She has made a decision and the decision was that the rule was not written correctly. This is an overreach of the fourth branch of government, the unelected, unchecked, unknown branch of government the CDC, these powers must be done through the legislative branch. It was a pure constitutional decision and God bless her. She's making America a happier place.

Great News! US Judge Overturns Mask Mandate on Planes, Trains

"Great news, everybody. We mentioned this yesterday. The federal mask mandate. On airplanes has been overturned. Catherine Kimball mizelle, a 35 year old former clarence Thomas clerk, appointed by Trump and confirmed by the Senate before the lame duck session ended has come in and has overturned and repealed the mask mandate. Now, the mask mandate on planes and on trains could be best described as almost like a hangover effect, if you will. A hangover effect from tyranny. Some restrictions have been lifted, but for whatever reason, the Biden regime was still very focused that they need to have mask mandates on travel between New York and Los Angeles. This has always been the great hypocrisy has been within airlines. It started with a different type of hypocrisy actually. And not just the hypocrisy, but a double standard and an inexplicable rule that was put forward and it was very simple. It was that why could I fly from Boston to Phoenix and sit next to somebody and remove my mask and be able to have a snack next to that somebody, but the restaurants are closed in Boston and Phoenix, the two places I'm flying from. It started in that sense, and now it's kind of changed to something even worse. Why is it that Boston and Phoenix has in rune dining? And you can eat in these places without a mask on. You have to wear a mask on the airplane between going those two places. And so the airplane has always kind of been a place of controversy throughout this entire saga if you will. The lockdown vaccine mandate mask mandate the entire kind of Fauci virus Chinese coronavirus saga, the airplane is a place where a lot of people have let's say gotten very heated fights and they do so probably for good reason because of the double standard of enforcement of the mask mandates. And I do have to say, I had a couple of pretty angry flight attendants throughout the last two years, but generally I have to say, flight attendants were so sweet, they were so understanding, they were very forgiving of even kind of jerks that were trying to defy the rule. And I'm not saying that to find the rule makes you a jerk. But it's a dumb rule, okay, but if you're now going to create a set of circumstances where, you know, you're going to, what's the best way I put this? Where you're going to try to make the entire plane have to land because of your own decision. That's very selfish. That's not looking out for other people. I don't like it. That almost happened on a plane that I was in and thankfully it got fixed and it got kind of sorted out. So the plane didn't have to get rescheduled. Mask mandate went on for far too long and never should have happened in the first place and this is not just a win for passengers. This is also a win for flight attendants as well.

Trump's intelligence chief warns China is the greatest threat to US since WWII

"Outgoing us administration of president. Donald trump has thus far extended few of the traditional courtesies to the incoming administration of president elect joe biden. There has been no two of the white house no sporting photo op in the rose. Garden and little of the handover briefings from one group of officials to the next however director of national intelligence. John ratcliffe whether trying to help or hinder has passed along. His top worth to the next president in a wall street journal op-ed he has warned. President elect biden that china poses the greatest threat to america today and to worldwide democracy since world war two on joined with more on this point. Isabel hilton ceo at china dialogue. Isabel is the director of national intelligence entirely wrong here. We never entirely wrong but they do manage to you. Make a really terrible case turn radcliffe. I would remind you is director of national intelligence by skin of his teeth. When he was first nominated there was such a sort of howl of protest is lack of qualifications and the fact that he had falsified his own resume that that that trump at one point had to withdraw nomination before trying again. So you know as a kind of bond with the distinguished record nuanced analysis. I would you know maybe take it with a pinch of salt. That said clearly that the you know that china is a major challenge to democratic values of the united states. is meant to defend this. After a couple of problems with this framing one. It is clearly designed to To constrain at the incoming administration that is trying to take very different approach to foreign policy and the outgoing administration is trying to narrow the ground so saying that china is the greatest threat to freedom. Well you know okay It is true that china has indulged in ip theft. Absolutely true surprise just as the united states by the way did against the uk in the twentieth century. is it that may be ongoing espionage. Certainly and china certainly has nationalist ambitions. It certainly trying to bend the global rules to serve its own interest that is what big powers do including the united states. So the problem is is not the diagnosis. If you like. It's the reverend is that the trump administration has offered over the last four years which have simply made it easier for china to advance. Its case so the i think dangers here. One is the exaggeration of china's powers. And that's something we saw with the soviet union towards the end of the cold war. That if you have security agencies whose prosperity depends on building a threat they will big up a threat and so right to the moment when the soviet union collapsed we were hearing from. Us intelligence and security agencies that the world was about to be overwhelmed by soviet communism. And there's a bit of the same syndrome going on here but the second problem is the complete ineptitude of the trump administration encountering the chinese efforts to do that you have to build alliances not destroy them. And you have to make sure that your own offer has credibility. Most people prefer living a well-functioning democracy with personal freedoms trump has not been the best advert for that. At least for the trump's the united states is not the finest moment for democracy. And so you know yes. Of course there is a challenge here to challenge values challenge a political system but the way to country is with the integrity of our own political systems including that of the united states red cliff talks of china operating an influence campaign inside the united states. And on the one hand. That's a somewhat fatuous statement because everybody operates influence campaign inside the united states and indeed in pretty much every other country but is there anything especially sinister or dangerous about what china is doing. Ratcliffe also talks of them targeting members of congress. Well again no surprise. China has has done this an onion eternal lays it all out if you look at anything to do with the united front work department. Which is that bit of the party which has always existed which is intended to manage relations with non party elements. It used to be largely working within china building relationships or or not with religious authorities or with business. People are not in the communist party. Now that china's going global so has the united front work department and it has teamed up with a with the entity in the party that used to manage overseas chinese affairs so and it has put an enormous amount of money into this since the beijing olympics which was regarded as a pr disaster for china in so many ways Would've been the results. Well according to the pew survey in the last month china's reputation has never been lower so yes. China is putting great efforts into influence building and so far. They've been a terrible flop now. There is an element of this which is elite capture. Which again was going pretty. Well i think certainly in the uk for example in an example of elite capture would be the approach of the cameron government to china which you know proclamations of the golden decade. And so on. That's her you know very much again. If you look at elite attitude to china largely because of china's overreach there has been a big backlash everywhere from australia to the united states to europe. You hear the same message. so yes. they're making an effort but is it working. No it's not just one final thought and it's it's a concern that ratcliff doesn't raise for obvious reasons but is there any kind of danger of between now and january twentieth china just thinking there's nobody watching the shop if we're ever going to try and pull something big when never gonna get another chance like this. Well of course the big worry. I mean you might say. Hong kong was that the big warriors taiwan. And there's been a lot of jostling as you know in taiwan. I guess another option is the is the india china border again. We've seen quite a lot of live action there this year. My personal views. That taiwan is a step too far think china has a really a realistic understanding of what it would take not only to take taiwan but then to make that occupation work. And this you know. There are plenty of warnings about how difficult that is. And is this the moment to risk so much in pursuit of that. Of course the regime wants to recapture taiwa are how reunite or however they care to phrase it. But i think we've pretty much got twenty forty nine before that becomes acute in their many other Things that many other things that can be done to make taiwan life difficult short of a military assault isabel hilton front.

Lincoln Project called C say twenty twenty dot com like see something say something there's even an interactive map that has all the known incidents plotted on it. So it's definitely worth checking out even if you haven't experienced any issues yourself, the idea is to allow election lawyers and law enforcement deal with any issues that are reported. So it really is a good tool, a useful tool. However, the Lincoln Project stressed that these incidents only affect a small small. Of voters in that, the real problem is that trump in others want to scare you so much that you don't vote or make you think the system is rigged.

Emails threatening Florida, Pennsylvania voters to "vote for Trump or else!" linked to overseas servers

"Voters in at least four battleground states, including Florida and Pennsylvania, received threatening emails falsely purporting to be from the far right group Proud boys that warned quote, We will come after you and quote if the recipients didn't vote for President Donald Trump. The voter intimidation operation apparently used email addresses obtained from state voter registration lists, which include party affiliation and can include email addresses. Those addresses where then used that and apparently widespread targeted spamming operation. The sender's claimed they would know which candidate the recipient was voting for in the November 3rd election, for which early voting is already going on. Federal officials have long warned about the possibility of this type of operation. Such registration lists are not difficult to obtain. Last night after reports of the emails first surfaced, Christopher Cribs the top election security officials at the Department of Homeland Security tweeted that the emails are meant to intimidate and undermine American voters confidence in the elections. He urged voters not to fall for sensational and unverifiable claims, reminding them that ballot secrecy is guaranteed by law. In all, state security researcher John Scott Railton, who examined dozens of the emails said they were sent by a group its identity unknown that put considerable time and effort. Into identifying vulnerable Internet servers in several countries, including Estonia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which they hijacked to send the e mails Associated Press obtained one of the e mails sent from a business address in Estonia. From a Florida voter voters in Arizona and Alaska also received them. And then late this afternoon, U. S officials said Iran's responsible for emails meant to intimidate American voters and So unrest in multiple states. Thie officials were calling out both Tehran and Russia for activities meant to interfere in the upcoming presidential election. The announcement of a rare news conference underscored concern within the U. S government about efforts by foreign countries to spread false information meant to suppress voter turnout and undermine American confidence in the vote. John Ratcliffe, the government's top intelligence official, who along with FBI director Chris Ray Held. The press conference insisted that the US would impose costs on any foreign countries that interfere in the 2020. U. S election.

"Here's director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, These actions are desperate attempts My desperate adversaries. This development comes. This development comes after voters in Alaska and Florida reported receiving threatening emails. This week. NPR's miles parks covers voting and election security and joins us now with more hi, miles. Hey, Ari. This was a sudden press conference what government officials revealed tonight. Basically what they said, is that foreign adversaries are at it again at it being election interference you notably in this case, it's Iran and Russia. Now this is something that we knew was going to happen. Basically, for the last four years as we've learned more about Russia's efforts in 2016, what election officials and national security folks have said, is that they never have really stopped that there's still a lot of incentive. For American adversaries to interfere in elections. So tonight American election officials, national security officials, I should say, came out and said that Iran and Russia have access some voter rolls in a number of states. These voter rolls are generally public records. But what these countries have done is used. These voter rolls to nefarious means a number of voters as you mentioned Alaska in Florida, potentially a couple other states have reported receiving threatening emails related to basically intimidating them. Into not voting or voting for a different candidate. Officials also said that Iran was circulating a video that seemed to indicate fraudulent votes being cast potentially from foreign countries. What do those emails say? Tell us more about them. Yes. So, basically what the emails purported to be is from this far right extremist group called the proud boys on. I haven't email here in front of me that Alaska public media acquire that was central voter. It says you're currently registered as a Democrat, and we know this because we have gained access into the entire voting infrastructure. You will vote for Trump on Election day or we will come after you change your party affiliation to Republican toe. Let us know you received our message and will comply. Eso. Obviously, that's pretty terrifying. If you're a voter, and you don't know anything about this, and you receive this in your email inbox out of the blue one Florida County that NPR talked with, said potentially hundreds, if not thousands. Voters in that county received these. So what of the director of National Intelligence and the FBI say they're doing about this? The biggest thing that they could do at this point is talk about it. You know, this is a big change from 2016. When a lot of this election interference we know the national security officials were monitoring it, but they weren't necessarily coming out on and they were do they were being a little bit more tight lift, not talking about it so much. Here's director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe again talking tonight. We are standing before you now to give you the confidence that we are on top of this and providing you with the most powerful weapon we have to combat these efforts. The truth. Basically what officials say is that informed voters are the best defense against this sort of election interference. Now I know some listeners are probably thinking Well, you know, aren't these people gonna go to jail? But the reality is cyber threats like this are notoriously hard to prosecute and to investigate, so I would not hold my breath for for any, You know anybody going to jail over something like this? It's just really hard. To nail down who exactly did it and then to end up actually getting them in handcuffs? Miles you've been covering election security throughout this long campaign. How significant does this latest development tonight seem to you Should people be worried about the security of this election? I think it's significant for a number of reasons. The biggest one, though, is that the government seems really intent on trying to cut through some of this misinformation around voting. The problem, however, is that there are some aspects of the government. It seems at odds with this sort of message. You know, you have John Radcliffe today, saying that there's this video of that Iran is circulating. About fraudulent votes being cast by foreign governments. But if you remember just a couple months ago, President Trump was saying a very similar has tweeted very similar things as well as Attorney General Bar, and so There is, you know this issue at this point at the highest level of the U. S government where you know you're having some agencies fighting misinformation around voting, where a lot of experts would say that a lot of that misinformation is actually you know, being amplified by some members of the Republican Party right now, and you've talked about Iran's role in this. What about Russia? Russia at this point, what officials said tonight is that Russia also access these voter rolls. The problem is, they don't know exactly what they're planning to do with them. They are expecting some action to come from this. This this information that they've gathered. So voters basically, just be on the lookout. If you see something that smells fishy here. Seems like.

While Democrats said, the move would suppress critical information about foreign election meddling and warned they may subpoena testimony. John Ratcliffe the president's new director of National Intelligence, and to close trump ally accused US lawmakers of leaking classified information from July thirty first briefing to promote what he called false narratives that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China. Ratcliffe is a former lawmaker who ended trump during the congressional probes into Russian efforts to influence the two thousand sixteen election. Democratic lawmakers accused Ratcliffe of trying to block them from questioning intelligence officials in a bid to conceal information on how Russia has been interfering in the twenty twenty presidential election to help trump as it did in two thousand sixteen, the intelligence community has warned that Russia is trying to denigrate trump's twenty twenty democratic opponents, Joe Biden, and the Iran and China also trying to so disinformation Democratic senator.

I want you to respond to critics who say president trump puts loyalty ahead of experience my experience as a US attorney on national security issues as a legislator almost exclusively in these areas that was important him.

Trump Taps John Ratcliffe for Director of National Intelligence

"It appears trump does plan to use a lot of ratcliffe announcing today that he will nominate Ratcliffe for Director of National Intelligence. Now ratcliffe name sounds familiar. It's because trump did this get and he did. He did this before he was nominated by trump for the same job last July and that nomination was pulled in early August because there was not enough support in the Senate among Republicans over concerns over rat cliffs credentials House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi responded to the nomination. In a statement saying quote Congressman Ratcliffe has shown an unacceptable embrace of conspiracy theories and clear disrespect and distrust of our law enforcement and Intelligence Patriots. That disqualify him from leading American intelligence community. We call upon the Senate to remember that they take an oath to protect America. Not The president and vote against this nomination joining me now. Representative Roger Christner Mortiz a Democrat from Illinois. A member of the House Permanent Select Cup Select Committee on intelligence with John. Ratcliffe UP Congressman. Good to see you again. This one's tricky side. John Ratcliffe for a second. There's a guy he's a guy who's GONNA have trouble getting confirmed there are Republicans have serious concerns and we can talk in a minute. About what the reasons for those concerns are however he's actually going to have trouble getting confirmed the president's other guy who put into place. Richard Grenell is also widely thought to be not qualified to be the director of National Intelligence. But he can only keep the job until March eleventh unless Ratcliffe doesn't get nominated anytime. Soon in which case Greg Elkins Day on the job. So there's some trickery involved here right right. It's something called the Federal Vacancies. Act And perhaps your audience already knows about it. But basically this act enables Grenell to stay for as long as the nomination is pending and then if it fails for another two hundred ten days so practically another seven months after that and then the president could nominate another person and so while we might succeed in other words. This is what the president does got a lot of acting people and he likes exactly he he does. And and Mr Grenell in particular Is is considered to be a political hack and the reason why people are so upset about Mr Grenell In part is that he is basically going to be administering a loyalty test to all the people in the intelligence community whom the president suspects as being part of the deep state and this review is going to basically happen during the pendency of this nomination of Mr Ratcliffe and maybe beyond and grave damage could be done not only to the intelligence community but our national security in the meantime right. And here's the issue and I want to remind people about the history behind the director of National Intelligence and the intelligence problems that contributed to nine eleven. Right there was. There's some thinking and I want to Monday morning quarterback but there's some thinking that if all our intelligence organizations had shared their information properly we might have been able to prevent nine eleven. The director of national television's is the person who's supposed to do that. They should be the best informed. Smartest most qualified person in this country. Correct and that does not seem to be a priority to this president. No and and this kind of takes us to pivot point right now which is Is Is the intelligence community going to be led by someone who lives in the world of truth or is it going to be someone who lives in the world of propaganda and in the world of propaganda? You Know Truth Tellers are silenced and political loyalties are rewarded. But we know what that world looks like. We don't have to look further than China and the Corona Corona virus. China is a world of propaganda silence. The critics say silence the truth tellers and now they helped spawn a global pandemic. That's going to kill a lot of people unfortunately and heard a lot of hurt a lot of Americans too so this is why this is a consequence of lying. A little under the radar. But I think this is a a remarkable importance. I'm glad you join me tonight. To talk about a congressman Roger Crystal Mosey. Thank you as always

"President trump nominated Texas Republican congressman John Ratcliffe as the next director of national intelligence this is not the first time Radcliffe's name has been associated with the job in July the president announced Radcliffe for the job but then he pulled the nomination over accusations Radcliffe embellished parts of his resume well joining us live to talk more about a WTOP national security correspondent JJ green J. J. for a lot of folks might need their memories refreshed who is John Radcliffe yeah he just said that he's a congressman from Texas from the Eastern District of Texas stand down he was the nominee for this position last July from the president but that nomination had to be pulled because of some embellishment as you said Hillary of his resume and one of the interesting developments here is that this is the second time around and a part of the problem the first time around was there was bipartisan concern about him padding his resume and so him being back in this situation again begs the question what's going to be different what is the change he was very vocal very vocal proponent in the president's corner during the impeachment hearings so there are many who were wondering whether or not he's going to be essentially a person who makes changes there based on what it is the president wants as opposed to what the intelligence community wants if he gets the job of course there was also some bipartisan concern last time over what people thought might be his lack of qualifications so what are his go ations regarding national extra security experience well he does have national security experience because in two thousand four he was appointed by president George W. bush he was the chief of anti terrorism and national security for that Eastern District of Texas and he was later U. S. attorney there so there is some intelligence experience some national security experience the question some might have is is it the right kind for the office of the director of the national director of national intelligence considering what their mandate is and how big that operation is yeah we we talked about the the resume problems last time around we do you have any insight on you know what's what's all this items word that that might have been to the disqualifier last time around my memory is fuzzy on that but there was some then and there were some questions about what exactly he did and what exactly took place so this is sure to come up again and all of our memories will be refreshed because being the nominee he's going to have to go through this nomination process again and is probably going to be done in a very public way considering where we are with the D.
