Protests, Preparations Begin in NYC Over Potential Trump Indictment
"Trump on truth social Friday. Of course, then that led to all kinds of really epic reactions from people like, I mean, look at the people supporting him, who have his back. Starting with House speaker Kevin McCarthy, McCarthy came out swinging. He wants to investigate whether federal funds are being used in any way, shape or form over this political prosecution. Jonathan turley, Elon Musk, Mike Pence. Of course, Vivek ramaswami not Trump's political rivals, Ron DeSantis, strangely quiet on this. Nikki Haley, not saying much about it at all. I still, I'm not, I'm not there yet. Psychologically, I just can't believe they would be this dumb. Yesterday, you see in New York City, they already had such a huge protest in support of president Trump. They blocked and shut down Fifth Avenue. Outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan. Of course, Trump is calling on people to protest. That could be, listen, they could be baiting us into hoping for more violence and that's a problem. I just don't know if I believe it.

Hunter Biden Threatens Legal Action Over Laptop Allegations
"Now Hunter Biden is wants the Justice Department to invest the investigate and prosecute the people involved in the exposing of his laptop. So much for, well, it could be mine. Maybe not. This is the first time that Hunter Biden and his lawyers have admitted that the so called laptop from hell is his. That's why they want the Justice Department now to prosecute Rudy Giuliani and even the computer shop guy. They want him to go to jail, I guess. So what a train wreck. Jonathan turley is right. The White House is kind of in a freefall over a lot of this stuff.

Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Introduces Anti-White Supremacy Bill
"I get into today's episode, I have to talk about Sheila Jackson Lee. Sheila Jackson Lee is a congresswoman from Texas. I served with her. Sheila Jackson only has an amendment for everything an idea for everything and never failed to meet a mic in a speech that she didn't want to give. She gives more one minute. She gives more basically extension of remarks than almost any other member. But she's now come up with something that should be very concerning and it is a bill that comes up. It's called leading against Watson supremacy act of 2023. Now, it would not make it just a federal crime to commit a crime that was inspired by what supremacy. In other words, sort of take off with a hate crime legislation. I asked her enhancements. But it would also make it to a crime to post something on social media that promotes white supremacy views if someone else sees it and then commits a crime. This is a starting to draw the attention to everybody from Jonathan turley and everybody else on down. But listen to that. If you post something, they go out and do something and it somehow you're viewed as wide supremacy. Again, just an overt attack on the First Amendment. Again, Sheila Jackson Lee's, I think, knows better than this. I think this is a statement bill that she wants to people to talk about or draw attention to. But at the end of the day, folks, we've got to quit playing fast and loose with the constitution. Play it fast and lose the constitution is not a good idea. And when it comes to the issues of speech, remember, I've said it here in this podcast for I'll say it again. The First Amendment exists for speech that you do not like. It protects the speech that actually makes you upset. It is that kind of speech that is really protected as political space. And by the way, it's a government actor here. She's putting the government right in the middle of this. And again, unconstitutional is all comes. But just something to point out.

"In other words, all those giant troves of cash that he was forking over to the Democratic Party, democratic pacts, democratic candidates now, here's the interesting thing. Sam bankman fried was scheduled to testify very shortly before Congress, and he was willing to testify. Now, this is a little bit odd because he was already facing legal vulnerability and normally defense lawyers will tell you, don't testify, don't say anything that can be used against you, but prosecutors want you to testify. Why? Because they want you to speak freely, they want people to ask you tough questions. They want you to put yourself on the record because then all those statements can be used against you in trial, and so now we come to the mystery that I promised at the beginning of this segment, and that is, why would the government and by the way, we're talking about the southern district of New York, the SDNY, the very outfit, by the way, the prosecuted me, the very outfit that is trying to get Trump. These are bad guys. And I think it's fair to say that they are in some ways far more dangerous than Sam bankman freed. So you have one group of gangsters, SDNY, going after another presumed gangster, sandbank, and freed, and my question is, why would they arrest him before he testifies before Congress? The political scientist Jonathan turley has an op-ed about this. And he says that ordinarily, it's a dream for prosecutors when somebody who's about to be charged speaks out on their own because they get this treasure trove of statements that they can then work with. He goes normally, it's the defense strategy to muzzle a defendant. And yet, by arresting him, obviously now sandbank freight is not going to testify. Now he's going to sort of zip it up. Now he's going to lawyer up. Now he's going to be dealing with his case. But what could be the motive, not of sandbank and trade? This guy was doing all kinds of crooked deals, crooked deals with crypto, crooked deals with moving money from one place to another to give a false impression. You know, cheating is investors, some people have compared him to Bernie Madoff, but here's my point. I think the reason that the southern district of New York arrested Sam magnet fried before he testified is because they want to protect all the Democrats who are getting money from this guy. It's a little bit like what happened with gillan Maxwell, notice that gillan Maxwell is serving a big prison term, but none of her. None of her customers, none of the people on her list her list never even became public. All those powerful people, all those powerful men, Bill Clinton types, are protected to this day. I think something similar is going on here. The SDN, why? Far more corrupt than Sam bankman freed is trying to protect, as it always does, the Democratic Party.

If Jim doesn't know they have it, so what they get to do is tailor the narrative in what Jonathan turley, a Fox News commentator, a very talented lawyer. By the way, no die hard conservative as far as I know. Not knocking him, just telling the truth. What John turley calls litigation by leak? This is third world asymmetric information warfare sponsored right now by the government you pay to allegedly engage in law enforcement that is clearly engaged in full-time bouncer like activity for the Democrat bar. The FBI and the DoJ become bouncers for the left. They don't want you in the bar. They just kick you out. They don't need a reason. They'll just make it up. You show me the man, I'll show you the crime. Soviets said that. They know now you see why I'm so upset. You know, I defended with my own life. Democrat and Republican presidents in very dangerous places. I am whine about it and gripe about it and moan about it. You paid for it. I volunteered. I loved it. But the fact that I was able to put my partisanship aside and do my job and these people can't. Maybe explains the root of my anger, why I'm so upset yesterday. All right, I got more on this, including warnings we've been ignoring for years that the police state is now here. It's a big trouble. Coming up after the break, we'll be right back

"We'll talk to bob about it with me, Steve cocker. Tomorrow on the big 89 WLS. Four out of 5 Democrats secretly listen and learn something. The Dan bongino show. Was there always so funny? I'm Lisa booth, filling in for Dan bun Geno today, and I feel really bad because I sent so many clips to gems. There's like a hundred clubs. I was just so jazzed. I'm so freaking heated with all this stuff going on this week and I haven't really done my podcast, but I've not been on TV yet. I will be tomorrow. I think for Harris faulkner, so you can check that out on Fox and interview Laura Ingraham the other day, which is coming out Monday for the truth with Lee Smith. I mean, she's awesome. So you're definitely going to want to hear that. I sent so many clubs, so I feel really bad. There's a lot. But anyways, obviously we're talking about the raid, the FBI raid on Donald Trump. Before we took questions, I had played this clip from Jonathan, turley for you. I want to play it one more time for those that are just tuning in for you. I think it's 18 clip 18. The more we learn, the more confusing this gets, what did they possibly tell Reinhardt, did they relay this history to the magistrate? According to these sources that the president had cooperated, I mean, the idea that he was subject to a subpoena complied with the subpoena didn't challenge it, voluntarily showed the storage room to the agent. It followed their advice, secured it to meet their demands. All of that is hardly a basis for saying, now we need to send in 40 FBI agents on a nighttime rate. If the subpoena worked the first time, then presumably a second subpoena would work the second time if there were remaining documents that were not gathered up in the first collection. So obviously the whole point of this is to stir things up to try to scare Trump to try to send a message to try to get him not to run again in 2024 to try to row up to rile up his supporters to try to get people angry to go out and maybe do something stupid or I'm sure there's FBI agents trying to stir people up to do something stupid ahead of the election because when you've got nothing else, when you've got an economy faltering when you go through the list, there's absolutely nothing working in this country. I mean, the amount of carnage that Joe Biden has done. The amount of damage he has done in such a short period of time is actually remarkable. I mean, it is actually remarkable what he has done. So they've got nothing left here. And he raised a question of why do you need to go knock down this guy's door, go ransack a former president, which is absolutely unprecedented. And by the way, setting a really dangerous path as I was talking about earlier, because essentially what this means now. And you've got Biden's got a lot of skeletons in his closet, right? You look at his son, numerous crimes, the guy. He's being investigated right now. I mean, they're probably going to go light on him. However, you know, if you're a Republican president that seeks revenge, maybe they won't. So is this really the smartest precedent if you're Joe Biden? And if you're going after a former president, I think it was cliff Sims who used to work for the Trump administration who tweeted this. He said, you've got to have like 40 dead bodies in the basement. That's the justification for sending in the feds after a former president. Because they are setting a really dangerous precedent and really setting us weaponizing the government against a political opponent is what happens in third world banana republic. Countries. And so you heard from Jonathan turley there and he was saying, look, if Trump was participating and working with the national archives working with the turnover these documents, why not just issue another subpoena? Why do you have to send the feds in? So clearly they were trying to send a message clearly. They're trying to take down Trump. I pointed this out a couple of times on the show, go to Fox News, Brooke singman, has an article out about the numerous investigations that Donald Trump has faced that they've gone after him. Time and time again going after him. However, I do think they overstepped here. I do believe that they overstepped here. And I think why is you're already seeing, first of all, I looked at some polling from the tray file group earlier on the show showing that now you've got something like 80% of Republicans who are fired up, wanting to head to the polls this midterm election about this who view this as politically motivated independent as well the majority of independence fired up to go to the polls and also you've got independence looking at this as a witch hunt as well staying it for what it is seeing for what we all know, but there's also this. There's these interesting reports, I think, it's interesting. Newsweek and some of these other reports about infighting within the deep state, right? You've got the FBI pointing the fingers at the DoJ, the DoJ pointing the fingers at the FBI. And what's really interesting, I think, this was in newsweek. And according to sources about the FBI's deliberations and all of this, the

"Is a whole absurdity of this is, you know, all he did is seek accountability. And you have the department of injustice. The travesty of what's going on in this show is a hypocrisy of accountability. It's the lust of the machine to kill off any opposition for future power retention goals. It's an ocean of Liza keeps slapping away against our face. Insulting us. And it's Democrats. They say they're defending democracy while shedding the due process and the constitution and the whole attempt. It is so absurd, it's laughable, but yet all my friends in New York are just hanging, you watching, are you watching? And I'm going, no. It's like this. It's like pornography for them. They're so excited about it. You know, the law professor Jonathan turley Paul yesterday told John Roberts. He said, the fact is this committee. This January 6th committee, there has been zero effort to offer any balance any alternative interpretations in many of the quotes they used evidence that they presented that have been carefully edited and it trips away. They have zero credibility, but yet people like your friend in New York, they saw that and they just said, look at that.

Jonathan Turley: Law Enforcement Will Be Ramping up Security
"Let's listen to Jonathan turley, moments are going on Fox News talking about increasing security and what happens now that the Supreme Court has reversed roe V wade. When people are calling for a day of rage, you know reason is will be a stranger. And that's what we're already seeing. People feel very passionately, but there's some that can take that to violent end. So I expect they're going to be ramping up security. In terms of federal law, now that the opinions out, it's actually more difficult to use the law because the law was designed to allow the arrest of people who are trying to influence a pending proceeding or matter with the court. This is no longer pending. So if anything, it's going to be less likely to arrest just for the act of protest. But I think that now law enforcement is going to really be acutely aware that there are people who are likely to lose reason, lose restraint and could well become violent. And so I expect that they will ramp up that security.

"The news broke as we were preparing for the show today after a very short trial, Michael sussman former DoJ lawyer working for the Clinton campaign was found not guilty by the jury in Washington, D.C. of having lied to the FBI. Not difficult to predict given that 93% of the city voted for Hillary in 94 for Joe Biden just last week, Jonathan turley, the left wing lawyer, had this to say about the jury on Fox News. The problem for Durham is the jury and the judge. I mean, he is facing a jury that has three Clinton donors, an AOC donor, and a woman whose daughter is on the same sports chamber sussman's daughter.

"Mike Gallagher. Rolling along here on a Wednesday episode of the Mike Gallagher show. Boy, we've had so much this week that's happened with Elon Musk trying to take over Twitter trying to buy Twitter, which has been a fascinating development on many levels. Let me tell you what I'm most intrigued about. And what I like about the way this is unfolded. And this is important. You have to remember that the left usually identifies themselves or reveals themselves I should say for who they really are. They're not pro free speech. I mean, anybody who supports the efforts to shut down a Ben Shapiro from talking on stage. And all these college campuses that have seen these disruptions of conservative speakers or watching the way conservative speech has been censored and shut down in these social media platforms. I mean, you don't need me to point out that they don't believe in free speech. I loved what Jonathan turley said on Fox News this week. This was a real, real important takeaway. They are literally anti free speech. Democrats said things like Elon Musk taking over Twitter would turn Twitter into an arena of hate. Brian stelter over at CNN said it would be like being in the gutter with social media. They are and Elon Musk Musk's stated goal in buying Twitter is to return the principles of free speech to that platform. And that's what they're afraid of. Listen to what Jonathan turley, the law professor said this week on Fox News channel. Free speech is the thing that's the lifeblood of these companies. And this board has made Twitter synonymous with censorship. And so you have this collective freak out going on about the prospect that free speech could break out on Twitter. Well, it's going to put a test for the board as to whose interests really matter here. You have a whale of an investor come in, offer about a 50% increase on the share value from before he made his purchase. And they immediately passed around the poison pills and assured employees that they wouldn't be taken hostage. But what they're all complaining about is this fear that free speech could break out again. On their site like it's some type of virus. Isn't that a perfect line to describe the atmosphere? They're afraid free speech is going to break out like a virus. They view free speech as a virus. They view free speech as something that's detrimental. Dissent is not allowed. One of the jokes about antifa is antifa stands for anti fascist, right? They're the fascists. The left is fascistic. The left is dictatorial. The left says you can say whatever you want as long as you agree with me. You can take any position you want. As long as it's my position, and.

I can break it all down for you pretty easy. It was Hillary. It's real simple. It was Hillary.

In 2020, the media largely ignored that finding. Hold your breath, hold your breath media. Don Junior was on Sean Hannity show last night. And he responds pretty forcefully to the collective silence the crickets from the media. Over the findings of the Durham special counsel that there was actually spying taking place not only at Trump Tower, but The White House itself. Three years of his presidency 30 years from me under congressional testimony, the witch hunt never ends. They still talk about Russia, Russia, Russia, as though it's real, but the second Hillary Clinton's campaign lawyer gets indicted for lying. When they're working with a government tech agency that was not only monitoring candidate, Donald Trump, but president Donald Trump actually spying on the president of the United States, the media who love to talk about these conspiracy theories have suddenly gone silent Sean. Where's Bob Woodward? Because I heard every time my father put out a tweet for the last 5 years, it's worse than Watergate. Well, this actually is worse than Watergate and yet all of those clowns are strangely silent. Just like our media because they can't run cover for this, they know they've been caught.

If you come in a socialist country, you know, if Trump wasn't in office and didn't get the three people on the Supreme Court, things would look a lot differently. I think in this country during this pandemic. So elections have consequences. We need to be very active in these elections. Up and down. You better believe it, and that truer words were never spoken. We better be engaged, active. We gotta fight. There is so much on the line right now. And it's funny.

No. No, it can't. You know, you're right. If he's the candidate, you're going to make a great senator. But whoever the candidate is, we have to stick together.

I mean, you're going to call rioters heroes? You're going to call looters heroes. People assaulting cops, heroes, here was town hall, senior writer, Julio rosas. He does great work. We try to get this kid on a few weeks ago, but he was traveling. Or maybe I have interviewed him. He's really good. And he goes to a lot of these scenes where these so called peaceful protests are underway. Here is what Julio told Tucker Carlson last night on Fox News. I mean, Tucker, I'm not going to lie to you. I got pretty heated because I mean, yeah, I was out there that night. And to call this mob of rioters, heroes is just an absolute lie. I mean, think about it. Being a call this mob heroes when they were attacking the place where he works at. I mean, this just shows how ridiculous this trial has gotten. And I think it just highlights the fact that they never had a strong case to begin with, but they have to throw everything that they can. To try to save what case they have because throughout this entire trial, their own witnesses, their own supposed video evidence. Only served to bolster rittenhouse's claim to self defense. And as someone who was there that night, it's just very, very aggravating to just see someone lie to the jury in hopes to try to save what his save his case and potentially his career. We'll see what happens. Again, keep praying for Kenosha, pray for that part of the country pray for the world pray for the

"Go to the post office again. I want to play this cut here of Anna kasparian. She's been super nasty to me throughout the years. And I'm not going to compliment her. Some people are kudos to her and it's not about that. What's about with this clip is most interesting, though. She's a leftist. She's a young Turk person, whatever. The reason why this clip is interesting, though, is that she admits that she was participating in the simulation when it came to court proceedings. Meaning that she thought she knew all the facts and circumstances around the Kyle rittenhouse drama, and she says, oh, actually, I had it wrong. Now why this is important is that half the country is believing this around vaccines around masks around lockdowns are on hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin azithromycin around. Vaccinating children, all these sorts of things. That Anna kasparian in a rare moment of honesty speaks out and says, no, no, no, actually. I had this all wrong. So let's go to cut 99 where she says out loud, far left winger. The facts and circumstances around Kyle rittenhouse, people have been lying. Play cut 99. But look, these details matter because if you're gonna make an argument that you acted in self defense, there needs to be some proof that there was an imminent threat. Now, what really mattered to me was how all of this unfolded? What was the thing that sparked it? What started all of it? And initially, I was under the assumption that rittenhouse was the person who was chasing after Joseph rosenbaum that that's how it started. But I was wrong about that, okay? So I want to correct the record. I was in fact wrong about that. You were wrong because everyone on television has been intentionally wrong trying to slander an innocent young man Kyle rittenhouse because it feels good to support the narrative that young white men are carrying AR 15s, in Kenosha, trying to hunt people down, and that was not true. But I do give her credit for correcting it. I wish more people did that. Unlike joy Reid and Chris Hayes, who doubled down on the fake and false narrative. One more clip here, and then I want to bring in Dave Hancock, who is the rittenhouse family spokesperson, I want to play Jonathan turley cut 85 on how the prosecution is acting like the Titanic sinking and how the prosecution witnesses turned on them to benefit written house. Play cut 85. Well, the prosecution couldn't have had a more disastrous day yesterday. And this has a feeling of feverishly moving the furniture on the deck of the Titanic because the ship seems really to be sinking by the hour. Really, the prosecution stumbled right out of the gate. It's called key witnesses that turned on the prosecution and gave what was very beneficial testimony in favor of rittenhouse. The prosecution is falling apart. This was a sham trial from the beginning. Let's welcome to the show. Dave Hancock, spokesperson for the Kyle rittenhouse family..

He is the apologist lawyer for white supremacy. And he now I don't recall hearing him say anything about George Floyd. Or about Elijah Green or as a large your job don't or or any of the African Americans who were just gunned down for merely existing or murdered. For merely existing. You know the case. I believe it was in Michigan, where the boy had a toy. Yeah, he was. He was like 12 years old policeman shot him before the car even stopped through his car window. Don't hear him saying anything about that. There is two sets of laws here. Okay, I'm gonna owner You know, I understand when there are situations where law enforcement may and may not have to shoot, but Ashley Babbitt as a security policeman in the Air Force, did what we call breaking red. You never break that red line. They will either tackle you, but if you continue, they was off. They are authorized to shoot you dead. Try this at joint base. Andrews Air Force One is station. Try crashing the front gate. They will. They won't chase you. They will gun you down. Yeah. You know, they may take you into custody. But let me tell you something. If it looks like you're a real threat, and that's what this officer saw was a threat to the red line against democracy. They are going to use and are authorized to use lethal force. Yeah. So I've been dying to talk to you about Afghanistan because the president God bless him has gotten us out of this ended the 20 year war with the most successful evacuation in history, Right 124,000 people, you brought attention to Robert Young Pelton on Twitter. You said. I've known him for years and he knows what he's talking about. When it comes to Afghanistan, he said. A number of Florida based politicians and Americans working remotely are trying to create a Benghazi two point Oh, With the propped up narrative. The Biden has left Americans to die in a hostile Islamic nation. They're legit groups working on S. I V s, but instigators are amping up the drama. These are these private charters they're trying to do, And then they go on Fox and say it's a hostage crisis and the Taliban is holding Americans hostage because of Joe Biden when they don't have The correct paperwork, but the Taliban as far as I can understand, it's not holding anyone hostage. It's because they're not doing it through the State Department or the Biden administration. They're doing it to try to trip the Biden administration up. Am I reading that wrong? The situation that's unfolding in Mazar I Sharif, for example, um are six chartered aircraft. Afghan local Afghan, um, civilian charters. That were charted by Glenn Beck. Thank you tune of $780,000 each and Glenn Beck thought he's just going to go there by local aircraft leased local aircraft. Fly them there, fly out all of these American citizens. Well, there's some things that you need to understand. Right. Okay. The Taliban may have been a terroristic regime, a massage, honesty, patriarchal tribal society, but they now run the government of Afghanistan. Right. They have a say and as you can, and cannot leave that country, so they control their airspace. Kam Air, which is the Afghan airline, he chartered. Runs by thereby you lit by their week. So instead of allowing the diplomacy to allow these aircraft to go because they don't know, you know Glenn Beck and all the rest of them are saying that there was a hostage situation, right grandstanding to try to make Biden look bad. And can I, You know, the United Arab Emirates just arrested six people on August 31st. Flew into the E with weapons from the United States on private jets, thinking they were just going to fly into Afghanistan and start doing the Chuck Norris hostage rescue every time one of these incidents happens. You endanger the lives of American citizens. Thank you, right. I mean, when you go into these countries with weapons, you're now the bad guy. Yeah, it's his grandstanding. Congressmen that flew in and took seats that Americans should have taken on flights going out of Afghan Anyway, Let me just tell you the Taliban, you have to worry about. It's the local tribes that run that country, right? And they will turn you into the Taliban. They will you will endanger the life of every American citizen there. So. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken tonight yesterday reports that the Taliban had blocked Americans attempting to fly out of Afghanistan but said the group had not allowed charter flights depart because some people lack valid travel documents. Reports have emerged that 1000 people, including Americans have been stuck at the airport for days waiting clearance for their charter flights. One organizer blamed the delay on the State Department, the State Department. Criticism echoed by some Republicans. Well, this is what happens when you don't coordinate with our State Department and you're just grandstanding and try to make Biden look bad. It is anti American. I keep saying this there on the side of America's enemies, whether it's Russia and their anti vax nonsense, whether it's uh You know they're on the side of covid. Basically there on the side of January six insurrectionists. I mean, this is what this is the the people people are openly rooting for the Taliban. Right that it makes Biden look bad. Yeah, dial it back to grandstanding. All of this is about And you know, there are hundreds of thousands of people that want to get out of Afghanistan that are qualified to leave that country, right? But there are also millions of economic refugees. You know, I've mentioned this before. There are 4500 Afghans. Being held by Australia that had managed to make their way down to Indonesia and Malaysia and get on boats to enter into Australia over the last 20 years. Because they want to go to a better life. There are 38 million Afghans and what we can do is we can't take every one of them. So it's 1000 people get onto a plane and say I work for the Americans, but don't have one document. You can't let them go. You can't. You can't take everybody. Well, that's an unfortunately there are people who are really qualified. Yes to go on these flights who are now being blocked? You know you have these. You have these grandstand teams coming down there and you know what they're doing. They are burning the pathways out. For everyone in the faction. Thank you. Because the first thing they do is they run to a newspaper and say I rescue two Afghan? Yeah, but now you've left 100,000. Thank you. Thank the Taliban are waiting. Yeah, so, Blinken said one of the main challenges around the charter flights. Attempting to part with some people lack the valid travel documents, as you just said, which effectively blocked the departure of the entire group. And it's my understand the Taliban has not denied exit to anyone holding a valid document. But they have said those without valid documents at this point can't leave because all these people are grouped together. That's meant that flights have not been allowed to go. Lincoln added, the Taliban were upholding their commitment to allow Americans with valid travel documents to leave. We are not aware of anyone being held on the aircraft or any hostage like situation. Um, yeah, this is Mike McCaul. That's the guy. Republican went on Fox News Malcolm and said, Uh, the Taliban were holding passengers hostage for demands. I mean, this is despicable anti American just chaos agents doing this, he, Blinken said. The U. S has no means to verify the accuracy of passenger manifests, among other issues, he said. These raised real concerns. But we're working through each and everyone in close coordination with the various initiatives and charter flights that are seeking to evacuate people, But I just want to emphasize there are a lot of issues to work through. But you know you're right. They gotta hurry and go on Fox news and say there's a hostage situation and it's Joe Biden's fault. Yeah, You know, I was the chief of a school called the advanced terrorism, abduction and Hostage Survival School. And let me tell you something. So what was the demand? What was it specifically, the Taliban said they wanted in order to release those people. If it was accurate travel documents and right now, I mean, they've been letting people who have worked with the Americans leave. Actually have letters of commendation who have these things, and it's dangerous to go out there and tell the Taliban that the Taliban is not a human, a homogeneous organization. It is made up of individuals from tribes and all other organizations. The leader of the Taliban had a hard time getting journalists freed yesterday by his own forces because they come from different tribes. What these people are doing is they are taking situations that they have created..
Pelosi's January 6 Committee Demands Phone Records From Republican Congressmen
"I want to talk about briefly. What Pelosi is having this commission she set up with all Democrats and to never Trumpers. On January 6th how they're subpoenaing. Members of Congress. Of the subpoenaing the former president of the United States. And Jonathan Turley has this right? In the Hill newspaper says he quotes this Chairman Bennie Thompson from Mississippi, a Democrat. And he says, We have quite an exhaustive list of people. I won't tell you who they are with those words. Thompson confirmed that a subpoena storm was about to be unleashed in the investigation of the January six ride in Congress, he writes. The targets would include Republican members, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, representative Jim Jordan. We've already been told to preserve their phone records to be surrendered to the committee. The Democrats are reportedly trying to prove their prior claims that Republicans conspired or assisted insurrectionist quote unquote Even though the FBI reportedly found no evidence of a planned insurrection. But these are the dead enders. While all this is going on in the country, while all this is going on in Afghanistan, this is what the Democrats are doing because they're good at this. They're good at Stalinist old Soviet tactics. That's what they are. That's who they are.

That's the first thing they have to jump to. We've got one hundred forty. Some people still missing and what they're all they want is political gain out of this. Just it's despicable and then you've got things like this washington post reporter hanna.

Collapse on saturday dryer posted her twitter on her twitter account famous response to the recent building collapse from famous statement. She concluded that dissented waited over a crucial twenty four hour period to provide emergency relief for victims on sunday however disentis his press secretary responded to the tweet claiming dryer left out crucial details from her tweets. What a surprise this is why. We don't trust these douchebag. She also added the dryer. Did not ask for her comment or disentis or anybody else in the administration. Wow this is missing important context. She tweeted they. Didn't ask me for comment. Emergency response started within. Minutes of the disaster led by miami. Dade county amazing. First responder responders county mayor signed local emergency declaration at four forty and governor to santa signed the executive order less than one hour later so it. There is a procedure you know. The local officials have to ask for the help they did and almost immediately it was provided. This is exactly what the press did with trump during covert. They're like. Oh you're not doing enough. you're not doing. Oh you're a dictator. I mean what what is it you want. I mean he has to wait for the authority from the county level in the mayor's my gosh you people the press it really does and how about all the lies about trump during the campaign especially late in the campaign just taking rumor and running with it as if it's proven fact as if they had auto evidence of trump saying ridiculous things about american troops fighting in world war two. And how were they were. They were suckers because they got killed they just ran with that and acted as if it was an actual quote.

We don't know exactly what happened at this point but given what we know about the changing climate given that we've seen an increase in the so called extraordinary tides and the impact that can have in areas like south florida. Do you think that climate could have played a role in that building's collapse. Well obviously we don't know fully but we do know the caesar rising. I mean we know that inches and inches of beaches. That is incredible. Well obviously we don't know but i'm going to speculate now because i'm that kind of irresponsible politician and i'm just gonna throw stuff out there to make people panic and say yes We obviously know the seas rising do we though do we.

"And that protects that right to remain silent not to give testimony against yourself. It's a very old principle, but this has been a problem with the house for a while in the first impeachment. Representative Swalwell, who's now a house manager. That when President Trump raised privileged defenses to turning over documents that the house you just treat that is an admission of guilt on the underlying claims. So the question is, at what point Does this become prohibitive? How many core values and principles are we willing to discard? To convict this former president. I was highly critical of the president's speech while it was being given. I did not support the challenge the electoral votes I actually supported the centering of the president. But there are prohibitive costs, right? I mean, when you start to say that we should start to use people silence as evidence of guilt. It shows how we have become untethered. Presidents traditionally have not testified in these trials. So in this president believes this trial is unconstitutional. She was really breathtaking. Their Raskin would say, Well, we'll just treat that is a Zen admission of inference of guilt. You mentioned the speech The president made hours before the actual attack on the capital. What is the bar for conviction? I know this is not a criminal case. But what would with Barbie for inciting an attack? With words. Oh, that's part of the other disconnect in a lot of the commentary. I've been a criminal defense attorney for 30 years on, and I I'm mystified by claims. This would be a strong case for prosecution. And it just wouldn't there's a case called Brandenburg. There. He says that even when you expressly cold for violence, it can't be prosecuted unless it is imminent. Trump is even call for violence. He actually says, Go there peacefully and he says, Go there to cheer on. People challenging the electoral votes. He's also said things like we're not going to take it. Show them that we're not going to take it. You know what I mean? That's right. And that is the type of reckless rhetoric that many of us criticized. But it's also indistinguishable from rhetoric used last four years. On the other side, people in our age of rage have been using reckless. Language, but that's fairly common that they fight for this. Don't let it don't let your country down. Lose your country. Perhaps someone could answer this. People have been saying that this is an open and shut case. Criminal incitement at all The elements are present. It happened in public and that he should, and almost certainly will be charged with incitement, All right? Why Anthony? It's been a month. Over mine. Why isn't there even been an interview of Trump for a criminal charge? And the answer, I think, because there's a difference between made for TV. Prosecutions in real prosecutions. Trump would have, in my view, a strong case. To defeat their charge based on that speech. And I doubt many of these prosecutors want to test that. Democrats have also talked about for two months. He questioned the election, talked about all these fraud comments, and the argument is that he helped so the discord that led people to this riot. I think there's some fairness in that. I think that that Trump does bear responsibility. What happened in the riot. I said so on that day. Aye, but you also have to be honest, right? I mean, there were Democrats in the 2016 inauguration who were still saying that Trump was not legitimate. It was just a year in four days ago when President Trump was acquitted in his first impeachment trial. House hearing leading up to that in December. 2019 Jonathan Turley was a witness also calling that case Finn. I don't bitch of a grudge, the investigation of the Ukraine controversy. I think it was a legitimate investigation. What a big grudge is How it has been conducted testimony that got him threatened. We had a great number of death threats, not just against me against my wife. They were even threats to shoot my dog. On. We've had people come to the house. It's been it was overwhelming. Well, I mean, I assume No one's ever done anything to act on that. But I do you feel Do you still feel unsafe? Or did that go? Hasn't died down. I still get threat The it hasn't totally died down. But I wasn't went through that during the Clinton Peach Mint when I said that a president could be impeached. Perjury and the Democrats accepted that Bill Clinton committed perjury in office. I also got death threats and then but they're more intense. Now. I think because of social media. And you know it's unnerve ng because You have Children, and they have friends coming by the house, But it's an example of the violent speech. I mean, the irony is, Of course, I'm sort of off the charts on free speech. I've always been an advocate for the broadest protections of free speech. I in that includes speeches considered violent, but there is a selectivity to how many in this trial are denouncing Violence speech. It has been a common feature of the last four years, and it has been something that has plagued the left and the right. Jonathan Turley, Fox News contributor.

"In American history behind us, but sweeping it under the rug will not bring healing. The only way to bring healing is to actually have real accountability, which this trial affords, and so we will move forward with the trial. It will be fair, but it will move at a relatively fast pace well, the trial in the Senate is not scheduled to begin in two weeks time. But should Congress be pursuing this now that Donald Trump's left office? Jonathan Turley, professor at George Washington University Law School, told me what he makes of the path. The Congress has taken I don't think it is right. There is a value to retroactive trials for ex officeholders. It obviously allows you to speak to the wrong doing. It's only been done once in the United States in a case involving a former secretary of war, But almost half of the Senate voted to dismiss that case, in the only other case involving a retroactive trial came right after the Constitution was signed involving a man named William Blunt. The Senate in that case rejected The premise of a trial. Blunt didn't even show up. He was actually a signer of the Constitution and said, You can't try people who are not in office because the Constitution says the point of this is to remove them from office. And I've already left. Yeah, I've just been reading what you wrote about this. You write about it, I think been back in 1999. It's just quite interesting words because you said members of both parties and this is the former secretary of war. Members of both parties ultimately concluded that a trial Of film that was needed was a corrective political measure. Is that the merit, though of pursuing this trial as that corrective political measure, in other words, not allowing for impunity and making sure that Donald Trump is held accountable for what happened at the Capitol? Yes, In fact, in 1999, I suppose the values of these trials I just think those values air out wait. By the costs. First of all, the Constitution itself refers to the impeachment of the president. That term. The president is used throughout the Constitution to refer to the current president. Otherwise, ex President Trump could still be issuing pardons. So there is this textural problem with using a process that first and foremost concerns removal to punish someone who's no longer in office? But the argument on the other side as well, Yeah, but the Senate can actually impose a future penalty to disqualify people from future office. And that's a valid point because you could see the value therefore, of holding retroactive trials. I don't find that is convincing today as I once did. I think that this really shows that retroactive trials could cause great harm. It would mean that a Republican Senate could retroactively impeach Barack Obama, where they could have impeached Joe Biden when he was running for president to disqualify him from winning. What other routes, though, are there available to hold Donald Trump accountable for what happened and at least test that charge of incitement to insurrection? Well, that's what's interesting about Speaker Pelosi's comment. She said. Well, that shows you're not above the law. She's referring to incitement You can charge President Trump with incitement. I don't think it'll work. I've been a criminal defense attorney for 30 years and I think that the case would fail. I think that the courts would find that what Trump said in that speech. Was protected by the First Amendment, but they might have other evidence to show an intent to cause this riot. But that's the way you can do it. Just simply charge him if if you want to show he's not above the law, used the law and bring this case, But I have a feeling a lot of people gonna be reluctant to do that, because he could I might view he would likely win that case, and he could use it to vindicate himself. For 2024 into running for the presidency again Well on that. Do you think he should be allowed to run for public office again? I don't think that they should bar him. I'm not a supporter of President Trump. I haven't voted for him and I condemned his speech while it was going on, and I also opposed the challenge to electoral votes. But I think that they're making a serious mistake. If they try to disqualify him, he could very well win in court, and that will make him a martyr in the view of millions. And they may actually jump start his 2024 campaign. But just on this final, that procedure aspect of my right and thinking that they have toe convict him in that Senate trial by a two thirds majority before by simple majority, they can bar him from office. Is that the order that it has to happen in? That's correct, so they still need that higher vote on the principle question of impeachment to remove him from an office that he no longer holds. And they're not going to get it according to the head count. Now, that could always change, But it seems unlikely. Just, you know, one very final thought. I mean, can he just refused to turn up for the trial? First? I should note that I've declined to represent the president, but I wrote a column to say that His best defense move would probably be to forgive the pun to be blunt. In this case, William Blood, You know, he did not show up for his trial. He stayed in Tennessee, and they sent it dismissed The tri allow as unfounded or or inappropriate, he could do that he could just not show up and forced the Senate to deal with this threshold issue. I think that's probably the best option for him rather than to give credence and legitimacy to a process that he claims is unconstitutional. Yeah, we're actually out of time. But I got to ask you. Why did you decline to represent him? All these various reasons, But the more I criticized the president's speech, opposed the challenge. That's hardly a good position for an attorney. But there's a myriad of reasons. Jonathan Turley, professor at George Washington University Law School. Hunted.

"Have a chance to be heard also provides due process to the president, the United States and again and every modern impeachment inquiry. The president has been given an opportunity to be heard in some form or another. This is necessary in order to ensure that the American people have confidence in the procedures the houses following. It's also necessary not because of the president's inappropriate. In reckless words are deserving of defense, but because the presidency itself demands due process in the impeachment proceedings, unfortunately, the majority's chosen to race to the floor The new article of impeachment for going any investigation, any committee process or any chance for members to fully contemplate this course of action before proceeding. Professor Jonathan Turley is correct when he called this a quote, dangerous snap impeachment and impeachment that effectively would go to a vote without the deliberation or enquiries of the traditional hearing. Festive. Curly also noted that quote the damage caused by the writers this week was enormous. However, it will pale in comparison to the damage from a new precedent of a snap impeachment. Unquote. If the majority is seeking consensus, this is hardly the way to create it. Majorities failing to provide the house with an opportunity to review all the facts, which are still coming the light to discuss all the evidence to listen to scholars to examine the witnesses. And to consider presidents. This is not the type of robust process we have followed for every modern impeachment and the failure to do so does a great disservice to this institution and to this country. Mr Speaker. I can think of nothing that will cause further division more in the past. The majority is now taking rather than looking ahead to a new administration. The majority is again seeking to settle scores against the old one. Rather than seeking to heal America. They're seeking to divide us more deeply, and rather than following the appropriate processes the houses used in every modern impeachment majorities rushing to the floor, tripping all over themselves in their rush to impeach the president a second time. What's worse, though, the majority seems to believe that this course of action is self evident on that's simply not the case. I have to tell them. It's not Members that have reviewed the same conduct and have come to dramatically different conclusions. Legal scholars like Professor Turley and professor Alan Dershowitz, both of whom condemned the president's statement. Leave that his statements are not impeachable. I know other scholars have different points of view. Given this difference of opinion, shouldn't we have a better process than this? Shouldn't we have a chance to examine witnesses discuss the matter with legal scholars and consider this in committee? Matter is grave and consequential is impeachment. Shouldn't we follow the same process we have used in every modern impeachment rather than rushing to the floor on behalf of generations of Americans to come. We need to think more clearly about the consequences of our actions today. Fact of the matter is Mr Speaker. There is no reason to rush forward like this. Other than the very obvious fact that there are only seven days left until a new president takes office. What's worse, as professor Dershowitz has pointed out because of the Senate's rules. The case cannot come to trial in the Senate until 1 P.m. on January the 20th One hour after President Trump leaves office. This is Nell advised course in my opinion, Mr Speaker. Even Senator Joe Manchin, a Democrat, agrees Center mansion is quoted this week is having said quote. I think this is so will advise for Joe Biden to becoming in trying to heal the country trying to be the president of all the people when we're going to be so divided in fighting again. Let the judicial system do its job, unquote. So what, then is the point of the rush to impeach We're coming off. A horrific event that resulted in six deaths have an opportunity to move forward, but we cannot if the majority insists on bringing the country through the trauma of another impeachment. It will carry forward into the next president's term, ensuring that he will struggle to organize his administration. It's worse. It will continue to generate the bitterness. So many of us have opposed. Why put us through that when we can't actually resolve this before the end of the president's term. Mr Speaker. I think my colleagues in the majority need to think about this more soberly. We need to recognize we're following a flawed process. We need to recognize that people of good will condemn for we need to recognize that while the house may be done with this matter after today's vote It will not be done for the country. They will not be done for the Senate, and it will not be done for the incoming and Biden administration. The houses action today will on Lee extend the division longer than necessary. Finally, Mr Speaker, I would note that there are other remedies that can be pursued. The president is expected to face litigation over his role in last Wednesday's events. There will be criminal proceedings against the perpetrators, and I hope all of those who stormed the capital will be brought to justice and some members have proposed an alternative procedure. Censoring the president, which could garner significant bipartisan support in the house. I do not think impeach it is a wise course, Mr Speaker, I would urge my friends in the.

Another byproduct of all that is oil. I was looking at oil today. Oil hit $50 a barrel about a half hour ago for the first time since February. You'll recall back in April. Oil futures actually went negative. How did they go? Negative. Well, because when, when you own oil futures and they mature, you have to take delivery of that oil.

Trump campaign goes on offensive with barrage of lawsuits
"Has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Nevada. They've demanded vote counting stop so they can obtain access to watch the vote processing process or they've demanded the ballots received in the mail after Election day be separated out pending decisions on whether they should count it all. That was especially the concern in Pennsylvania before the election started. I said that I was going to be looking at three particular states through the election, and that was Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Jonathan Turley is a constitutional scholar and law professor at Georgetown. The reason I isolated those states was that their states where the vote was expected to be close. They're states where changes have been made relatively close to the election in either their laws, their practices and finally their states that they're dealing with either new systems or unprecedented numbers of ballots coming in from various sources, it turns out, those three states will likely Determine the outcome of this election. You know, we also keep in mind that things like recounts are good toe identify. Regularities. They're not is great in terms of changing the load count. It's very common in recounts to have just a few 100 votes nullified or changed. The exception to that was 2000 and I was doing that coverage for CBS, and we saw a great deal of Ah nullification because of badly designed ballots and also the infamous hanging, Chad. Determinations. We don't have anything like that in 2020.

School classes. Both went into teaching. Both started to write in the areas of procreation, a ll rights and Constitutional interpretation. Both were deeply religious.

Trump weighs in on birther theory about Harris' eligibility to be VP
"Trump was a major force behind the Birther movement, claiming that President Barack Obama was not eligible to serve due to a racist conspiracy theory. That he was not born in the United States. Well, yesterday, Mr Trump cast similar doubt on Joe Biden's running mate, mate, Kamala Harris, who was black during a Corona virus briefing. He said he heard that the California born senator doesn't meet the requirements. Presidential candidate must be a natural born U. S. Citizen, a resident for 14 years and over 35 years old all requirements that Harris meets Justus. President Obama did CBS News Legal analyst Jonathan Turley says the Supreme Court precedent for this is more than a century old. Overwhelmingly, the courts take the view that if you're born within the United States, you are in fact a U. S citizen that has been challenged through history by both legislators and commentators, including some today, But the Supreme Court affirmed that people born in the United States are indeed natural born citizens in 18 98 in a case called the United States, versus Wong Kim, Ark. Well. Earlier this morning, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who's a trump ally, said that Kamala Harris quote is unequivocally and American citizen. Joe Biden's campaign is responding to the Birther issue, a Biden spokesman saying President Trump was the national leader of the racist Birther movement with respected President Obama, the spokesman saying. It's not surprised is the president tries to distract the American people from his Corona virus response that his campaign would resort to lies in their pathetic desperation.
