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.

Cavanaugh voted with the majority, even though Cavanaugh as a young lawyer, once wrote that president should always be immune from prosecution while in office.

So freaky of the women's law projects as the Louisiana case was, as the decision pointed out word for word, the same as the Texas case struck down four years ago.

And of course Mr Giuliani and his Bagman left Parnis and Eager Freeman. While they're at Congress could invite Mr Trump and vice president. Mike Pence to testify testified. So yeah the the answer to virtually everything Turley says in the state of the record of impeachment is the state of the record. Is that way because we have a president who is instructed. Dooley subpoenaed witnesses not to testify on grounds. That do not withhold any sort of constitutional muster right. These witnesses are losing left and right in the courts But you know as we've covered on the show e- even moving expeditiously through the courts would make it impossible. If you know if we waited for for courts to rule rule on all of these witnesses we'd be in Detroit takes years. Yeah take so. Yeah so I agree. I'd love for the record to be greater are the reason the record is isn't greater is because trump is and this is something. Democrats need to emphasize in an unprecedented way withholding holding witnesses and documents. The adult level not shared by Bill Clinton not even shared by Richard Nixon. Yes Richard Nixon held onto the White White House tapes. But Richard Nixon did not demand that all of his aides assert ex a a one hundred percent absolute executive privilege college. Richard Nixon did not have complete control over the Department of Justice and an attorney general. I mean the whole point of the Saturday night massacre was was that the that William Bar Level Todi was not the attorney general at the time that that That Nixon ordered the special prosecutor fired so To to not only to not mention that but to use a New York Times article criticizing the president for exercising and asserting asserting immunity over duly subpoenaed witnesses as support for the proposition that and again Charlie's words not mine of you recently voiced By The New York Times and other sources and quote is is deceptive at minimum.

"There but I are you ready Andrew for the impromptu. You were going to tell us. Oh I can't talk about Nunez and I'm the can talk about claiming lawsuit against the Trayvon Martin because we got a billion emails and I was like well. Why don't you just you know? Do do a quick crackpot lightning round. Because you know you're you're saying there's not much talk about anyway because these are terrible lawsuits but we don't know why we're not lawyers. We don't know the quick reasons. Why these table so crackpot lightning round go? Yeah okay number. One of our favorite. Hi I'm losing to an imaginary Internet. Internet cow representative newness from your state. has sued CNN for a million trillion billion dollars Actually it is four hundred thirty five million three hundred fifty thousand dollars. I like the three hundred fifty five. Yeah that's that's nice touch alleging doing defamation by putting out a hit piece that exposes his factual ties to Crooked Ukrainian politician. This is as yet another in the law right. I mean the reason I had this on the. We can't bother discussing this because devin nunes is is an idiot who files frivolous meritless lawsuits Someone even asked And I thought that this question was worth answering You know wouldn't that expose him to discovery like you're damn right it would be. Yeah like when because remember of a public official the standard for defamation. We've said you know only several hundred times on the show is the New York Times v Sullivan actual malice standard. It is then a defense. It's for CNN that the things that they printed about devin nunes. The things they said about. Nunez were accurate Or her and this is all you need for New York. Times standard is done under ordinary journalistic standards right not done with actual malice that is knowing falsity or reckless disregard for the truth so in the event that it went forward at all you would say okay. Well we're GONNA serve serve discovery on you For All of your connections to these Ukrainian prosecutors and newness has has no intention of turning over that information it will not turn over that information and so in the event that we ever got to the discovery phase he would refuse to comply I with CNN's reasonable discovery requests and as a result. Then the court would either order him to turn it over. Order him to Ah Or would grant summary Judgment in favor of CNN on the On the defamation counts for you know they're for Nunez's failure failure to cooperate in Exploring a valid affirmative defense namely that the story is true so There's a headline grabbing ping stunt by somebody who doesn't seem to understand the difference between notoriety and fame and And there you go. I know this crackpot lightning round by thoughts first off why the Magilla NBA Jillian Kajillions. Like why not make it a more reasonable. I know he's just a law terrorist. But like still if you you're like two hundred thousand four hundred thousand something where it's like okay. At least that's in the realm of plausibility. If what you were saying was even true but like even if you stipulated everything he said was true about Oh they defamed. Where four hundred? What did you say? Four hundred. Thirty five zillion million doubloon one hundred and thirty five million three hundred and fifty thousand and the reason is that count. One is the defamation count and it says and this is paragraph forty two on page forty four as a direct result of CNN's defamation information plaintiff has suffered presumed damages and actual damages including but not limited to insult pain embarrassment. One hundred million right there etel suffering K.. Specialty just costed other out of pocket expenses news. Even if we took Nunez's reputation mutation from the highest. It's ever been or will ever be to absolute zero. That's worth like maybe twenty five hundred bucks. I'm just saying that's about well. Twenty seven hundred dollars. I don't know he's he's not worth a whole lot is what I'm sick. Well Devon Nunez believes that he is owed four hundred thirty five live million dollars in compensatory damages. I'm I'm really really glad you asked this question because You know we I. It's in the lightning round. I was GONNA pass over but usually when you get eleven billion dollars as your as your demand right. It's like a million dollars in compensatory and then and ten billion trillion quadrille nine hundred ninety nine right. Everything else is punitive reverse. This is thirty five million income. Let's objectively more than he will or would ever make it as lifetime But he needs to be compensated. That because someone said mean think it is and if you were asking look you don't have to write the the amount of money that you ask for is called the Ad Damn name clause different states have different rules about whether ultimately the jury is bound by the Ad Damn claws Some states say you can't award award more term. I would make up when I'm trying to think of what Damn Dan. Yeah you don't even have to clown we could. We could say damned them till the cows come home. So you know eh lawyers know that you were demand is more than you actually expect to get There is no completing requirement. There's uniform pleading requirement that in federal court. Which is where this was filed? That requires you at the pleading stage to explain. Exactly how you've calculated it but I will tell you it is good practice to explain to have an excel spreadsheet. Maybe it'd be like look you know we lost You you know x million in business or you know whatever and sometimes it's hard to calculate damages so you know I look I'm trying to steal Nunez and it's the challenge But Oh and by the way this is the same like earthlink lawyer that that Nunez uses for all of his frivolous idiotic Glen Well. That's the thing I I kinda serious about being a lot terrorist if you find a very cheap way to issue completely b. s. lawsuits and then you can kind of make it so it'll cost your target orders of magnitude more than a cost you then like I mean it's a decent stunt if you're Ernie evil person right yeah yes to two things are at issue here right. The first is that depending adding on which state law applies right. California has very very robust anti slapp. Laws so You may have ANTI-SLAPP ANTI-SLAPP LAWS THAT KICK in Because even though this is filed in federal court you can apply the federal court is required to apply substantive substantive state law of where the offence took place. There's a good argument that took place at all in California right because that's where devin nunes is from that's where he's a allegedly suffering this four hundred and thirty five kids Jillian billion dollars worth of damages If that happens you know anybody who's listen into our live show with Kerry and Matthew Knows that California has really robust anti slapp law that that will provide for an early dismissal of this lawsuit and we'll get CNN's Legal fees paid so so there is some counterweight underway Ben. And and that's the other half right. which is fortunately here Nunez is suing CNN. And you know. CNN can pay a lawyer too you know the the five figure down attorney right they can just yeah believe me like the look if CNN CNN's profits are are hurting in the fourth quarter Shoot US an email open arguments at mail dot com and they make healing off of for helping to trump get elected. So they're doing fine. I I WANNA say this too I did you hear his answer for 'cause you know it came out the other day that there's phone records it's tying him to I. I don't know the hamburglar. Whoever that guy is where friend moment? Batman Giuliani was using and I I love it because his answer. It's so great. It's exactly what you would say. If you're totally completely innocent. Do they got phone record. Well that doesn't sound like me though. Does that so he was on Fox News interviews like what do you think I would be guy would call. That could accept a call from. That doesn't sound like me if somebody is. There's always a Thomas. Did you. Steal injuries bottle of Scotch and drink it all in one night. I wouldn't be like doesn't sound like something I would do. It'd be like now now I it'd be no or yes like yes. I proudly did that. Because you know we share Scott. What's what's Scotch among friends or now of course in steals bottled scotch she crazy? I like the idea that doesn't sound like a crime. I would commit weird I. I couldn't agree both what you say when like your wife is like did you happen to leave. Leave the door unlocked or something Now that doesn't sound like I feel like I didn't but maybe that's the kind of ordinary thing you do or don't do every day anyway. This is a delightful You know it it site at look into the Smith House. Yeah so the next on our crackpot lightning round is by popular demand The Larry Klayman lawsuit on behalf of and I just the whole thing. I'm just mad about S- completely man. I don't even want to that. That a whole that we all remember for who killed a Guy Yeah and so since we went slightly slightly long on the first part of the segment. Let's go really really short here Larry Klayman is a birther a racist. An awful human being who uses litigation as stunts and has been multiple disciplined by by multiple different courts over the the tenure of his legal career. So A for filing frivolous lawsuits And for other other misconduct in the practice of law and so it shouldn't be surprising that a racist monster who thrives off of publicity the and owning the libs has decided to file a lawsuit that he knows is going to rile everyone up. It has ab zero merit. It's an and it wouldn't surprise me if he were sanctioned yet that cool oh searching Donald Solvit. That's done a lot of good. So far all the sanctioning he's got not well look like You know you can be you know you can have a and again. It depends on where you're admitted. But you know you can have your bar or license suspended or revoked and eventually look at some point Larry. Klayman is licensed to practice. Law is going to be revoked. And we'll cover that in great depth on the show how. `Bout how. `Bout that yeah. When when you're saying is as he goes into his nearing seventieth year and then maybe he will face some possible chance of not being able to practice law into the seventies if he does like four more of these horrendous disturbing lawsuits as couch say good job Bar Association or whatever I if if you want to argue for stronger standard to making sure Larry Klayman doesn't practice just log in? I will sign onto that. That in the guy in Florida was a who was a gates that we were. Yeah that guy to like. Come on let's Let's up for standards. A little bit Bar Association. I agree I look like there is a little bit of the you know. Sort of Thin Blue Line for lawyers kind of activity going on. I've said this here before that. Like the the the only Schnoor way to make sure you get disbarred is to misuse client funds. John's right that is the one thing that across all jurisdictions and across all proceedings will definitely get you disbarred other stuff that's way worse arguably way worse You know doesn't doesn't necessarily rise to To to that level of the other lawyers who were deciding whether to discipline you or not You want argue that it's a problem.
