"PR politics podcast. I'm Susan Davis I cover Congress. I'm Hammer Keith. I cover the White House that I'm wearing. Look for the Justice Department last Wednesday president. Donald Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment and forty eight hours later. He began what I think is fair to call a campaign of retribution against people he has is perceived as his enemies along the way it was a purge. It was a bird. That's a good way to put it. I mean I think it started most personally with his attacks. Attacks Against Utah. Senator Mitt Romney which I don't think he's going to relent on anytime soon. No one Republican senator. Who voted to convict him right in the Senate impeachment trial and this this campaign rally? I attended on Monday. He mentions Romney's name and the room goes wild. So expect those attacks to continue but also the White House House forced out of the National Security Council. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander van men. He was a key impeachment witness they also pushed out his twin brother. Also so the ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sunlen was recalled And now president trump is suggesting that the military should discipline then inman or or at least saying you know the military should look into him in vitamin worth reminding he's a purple heart recipient and while he was a key impeachment witness and no part in the process. Is He being accused of anything wrong. If anything. He reported his concerns. The chain of command he follow all rules and procedures so being pushed out of the job certainly does look like it was retribution. Especially because the president has been so critical of him in this process very vocally critical of him Including earlier this week in the Oval Office. Anything can deal with the well. It's up to them. He is now he's He's over with the military. That's going to be up to the military talk. We'll have to say but if you look at what happened. I mean they're going to certainly I would imagine take a look at that but no I think what he did was just reported a full school. And let's remember Admin testified under subpoena Before the house impeachment angry and in that testimony also gave a very He he closed his opening statement with a very personal touch telling his father not to worry. He's doing the right thing. And this is the United States. Nothing bad will happen to him now. Now the White House and the president's allies will say hey the president can have whoever he wants working in his White House that ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President President and he can choose to get rid of sawn whenever he wants and that then men and his twin brother are both not out of a job. They're they're back in and the Defense Department. Let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll talk more about the Roger Stone case. What's good Yo as you know? February is black history month in all throughout that month. NPR's codes which is going to be running a special series about the history of black resistance because as long as black folks have been oppressed in this country. which is you know forever? We've also been fighting back listen and subscribed and we're back and now yesterday. The president waited in in the case of Roger Stone. A longtime friend and associate well known political trickster dating back to the Nixon era who's been convicted on charges of obstruction false statements and witness tampering. The president can weighed in on any number of things on twitter. He does that all the time but then Doj took action in that regard. This was a weird cascading crisis yesterday. That At the beginning of the day there was no inkling that this would actually head down the path that ultimately did and so what happened. Yes On Monday evening federal prosecutors in stones case made the the second sentencing recommendation as they do in every case And they recommended the guidelines range of seven to nine years trump tweeted his displeasure about that very early Tuesday morning and and then around midday it emerged out of the Justice Department that a senior Justice Department official told reporters that the Justice Justice Department thought that this was in excessive recommendation that this was different from what they had been briefed on originally in that they would clarify its position and so later in the day they filed a different sentencing sentencing recommendation and in this new filing they basically said look stone did some bad things. He should spend some time in prison. We're not going to suggest asked how much time that should be. But it should be far less than the seventy nine year recommendation that was in the original filing but this prompted prosecutors directly involved in the case this cascading cascading series of resignations. It did that's right the four prosecutors on stones case the ones who who prosecuted the case at trial all submitted papers offers to the court to withdraw from the case. One of them went so far as actually resigning from the Justice Department entirely and I think what that does is underlined. How unusual doable? It is for the Justice Department to overrule the prosecutors indicates when it comes to a sentencing recommendation. I spoke to several former prosecutors yesterday. Who All said this is essentially unheard of? It is highly highly unusual for what's known as main justice the Justice Department a headquarters here in Washington. DC to weigh in on on a case like this basically prosecutors. The line prosecuted on a case are the ones who know the case best. They're the ones who make the recommendation on what sentencing should be. There's no reason for Justice Justice Department higher ups to say you know what actually think in this case that I have not handled. This is what the recommendations to be. That's why this is so unusual. And what this has done is really emphasized is yet again questions that Democrats and former Justice Department officials have about the independence of this Justice Department in the trump administration and to put a finer your point on it. President trump then tweeted again quote. Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Bar for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even. I've been fraught evidence. Now clearly shows that the muller scam was improperly brought tainted. Even Bob Muller lied to Congress Exclamation Point. I have no idea what. He's talking talking about their with muller part but more to the point like the president of the United States clearly has no concern about the perception of of political interference. The president has not been shy about the fact that he believes that the Justice Department should more aggressively work on the issues that he personally he thinks are important. There's no sort of Semblance of distance between the president and the DOJ if anything he seems to have wanted to pull the institution closer under his control roll. One other element here Ryan that I think is sort of interesting. Is that both the Justice Department and the White House and even the president himself have been very clear that the president didn't talk to the Attorney General about this. He tweeted about it. He broadcast his desires. But they up and down are claiming that there was no conversation. However White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told us today out on on the driveway of the White House that if there had been a conversation conversation that wouldn't have been a problem either.

Spy chief defends handling of "unprecedented" whistleblower complaint

"Welcome to a special edition of the lead the White House in crisis. I'm jake tapper and what has been a nonstop and truly unprecedented day of news. President trump apparently furious about the whistle blower whose allegations now threatened to bring about his impeachment sources. Tell Mr trump behind closed doors earlier today said he wanted to know who in his administration spoke with the whistle blower and according wanting to the New York Times which first reported the story president trump then said quote because that's close to a spy. You know what we used to do. In the old days when we were smart with spies and treason right we used to handle it a little differently than we do now unquote and apparent reference there to executions as well as a misuse of the term treason season but the president's over the top response comes in context comes after a key moment in the trump impeachment inquiry today we got our first look at the full whistleblower a complaint about the president the one that sparked this whole impeachment investigation this whistle blower sounding the alarm about president trump using his power to get Ukraine aim to interfere in the two thousand twenty election and the White House according to the whistle blower then trying to lock down records of that phone call hiding the transcript in a computer system or only the most sensitive national security information is typically stored today House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it is clear what this sounds like to her. This is a cover up allegations of abuse of power and an ensuing cover up. If would-be quite damning would be extremely unethical and now of course it is up to Congress decide if those acts happened and if they are impeachable today the acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified on Capitol Hill defending the decision to not immediately hand over the whistle blower complaint to Congress as prescribed by law but Maguire would not say whether he spoke to president trump about the matter. Did you ever speak to the president about this complaint my conversations with the president because I'm the director of National Intelligence are privileged acting DNA McGuire added that he thought the whistle blower and the intelligence community inspector inspector general both acted in good faith. Let's go straight to CNN Sara Murray and Sarah. Despite president trump attacking the whistle blowers sources the acting spy. Hi Chief says he believes the whistle blower did all the right things. That's right jake president trump and his Republican allies have questioned the credibility the motives of this whistleblower whistle blower and we saw from the acting deny today as he was pairing these questions from lawmakers he said look it is not my job to investigate this complaint that was up to the inspector general he he found this complaint to be credible any went on to say that he believes both the inspector general and this whistleblower did essentially exactly what you're supposed to do. In this situation. I want to stress that I believe that the whistle blower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout I I have every reason to believe that they have done everything by the book and followed the law so you can see him sort of stepping out there and offering the defense he could he also admitted that he does not know who this whistle blower as he does not want to know who this whistle-blower as though he's committed to maintaining this person's protections and ensuring they're not retaliated against Jake and Sarah the the acting director of National Intelligence McGuire was asked multiple times about his conversations with President trump about this he refused to answer but there was was one part of his conversations with President trump that he was willing to discuss. That's right jake I mean. This is obviously a point of frustration for lawmakers. They wanted to know whether he and the president had ever talked about the complaint. He wouldn't say anything about that but he was asked to. The president want to know who this whistle blower was. Did he want you to find find out. Here's what he said did the president of the United States ask you to find out the identity of the whistle blower. I can say although I would not normally discuss my conversations with the president. I can tell you emphatically no now. He also confirmed that no one else at the White House no one else at the Justice Justice Department has asked him to try to figure out who the whistle blower is but jake you can imagine lawmakers were very skeptical. Today they had a lot of questions for him about why he would have taken a complaint that mentions the president and Attorney General Bill Bar by name and then gone to the White House and the Justice Department indeed Sara Murray thanks so much complaint lays out in detail the whistle blowers concerns concerns the president trump was pushing a foreign power Ukraine to investigate his potential twenty twenty opponent senior Justice correspondent Evan Perez with me now and Evan. What what exactly does the whistle blower say about President Trump's conduct well jake this is the bombshell really in the complaint and it has to do with what exactly the president was up up to when he was making these conversations saying these things to the president of Ukraine part of the complaint says in part I have received information from multiple. US government government officials that the president of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country into twenty twenty US election obviously Jake that is the the center of this controversy now that the White House has released a phone call. Everyone can make a judgment to determine whether or not they believe this is what the president was doing asking. The Ukrainians needs to investigate his likely rival in the twenty twenty election heaven. What does this whistle blower saying the letter about how the White House handled the aftermath of the phone call right end what the whistle blower says that there was an attempt to cover up essentially people at the White House knew that this could be a problem and so what the whistle blower lower says in part is this. I learned from multiple. US officials that senior White House officials have have intervened to lock down all records of the phone call. This is the Ukrainian phone call especially the official word for word transcript of the call that was produce. This set of actions underscored to me that White House officials understood stood the gravity of what transpired in the call and Jake according to this to this whistleblower other phone calls other interactions were handling it in a different manner or this one was handled in a completely separate way and again. That's that's leading to all of the accusations of a cover up all right. Evan Perez thank you so much the New York Times first reported in CNN and has confirmed that president trump earlier today told staff from the United States mission to the United Nations that he wanted to know who provided information to the whistle blower about his call call with Ukrainian president and whoever talked to the whistle blower was quote close to a spy and then he said quote in the old days spies were dealt with differently an apparent allusion to executions. I WANNA bring in C. N. N. White House correspondent bore Sanchez or as how was this met by staffers. Jake many any were stunned. According to The New York Times some actually even laughed this was a crowd of about fifty people according to the reporting of the UN Ambassador Basseterre Kelly Kraft was also in the room for this at least one of these people was taking notes and that's how we know what the president said listen to this quote specifically the president saying unquote. I want to know who's the person who gave the whistle blower the information because that's close to a spy you know what we used to do. In the old days when we were smart about spies and treason right we used to handle it a little differently than we do now. Jake the president making an apparent suggestion that these people should potentially face the death penalty very noteworthy considering the issues circling this president regarding obstruction of justice in the past and the fact that these officials could potentially become witnesses in the very near future also because the acting head of the deny was testifying at the time that this whistle blower acted lawfully and and did the right thing jake. There's certainly going to be questions about witness. Intimidation based on those remarks Boris. We are also just learning that Corey Lewin douse key the president's his former campaign manager is in conversations with the White House about potentially heading up the impeachment team to defend president trump. That's Rijeka the familiar face returning to center stage potentially of this kind of gives you an idea of the scramble behind the scenes at the White House with people close to the president telling CNN that they wonder if the White House has a plan to respond to this impeachment inquiry according to multiple sources Corey Lewandowski had conversations with White House officials about joining warning some kind of team to respond to this inquiry notably Stephanie Grisham the press secretary told CNN there are no plans to form an impeachment response team low. Lohan Dow ski told CNN that he had not spoken directly to president trump but he didn't totally deny the reporting altogether Jacobs right last resort Lewandowski. He was testifying on Capitol Hill among the things they said was that he doesn't see anything wrong with lying to journalists which is essentially the same thing as lying to the American people yeah. Boris thanks so much much more on our breaking news including cluding if the whistle blower will testify before Congress you're watching a special expanded edition of the

UN Climate Summit in New York where United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez has said he wants to see governments and business pledged to abandon fossil fossil fuels. We are losing the fight against climate change. He said at a news conference on Wednesday Fridays for future began as a weekly demonstration in by Swedish teenager Greta Tune Berg in August last year but has since spread to more than one hundred and fifty countries miss tune. Berg leads the charge and we'll speak the south to noon at the strike in New York.

Oh and the city of Houston is recovering from tropical depression. Imelda severe rains and flash flooding only two years after Hurricane Harvey for thousands of student protesters around the world. The fate of the planet is a serious business. The trump administration plunged into an extraordinary showdown with Congress of access to a whistle blowers complaints about reported incidents including a private conversation between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader the blocked complaint a serious and urgent the government's intelligence watchdog said the inspector general appeared before the House intelligence committee behind closed doors yesterday but declined under administration orders to reveal to members the substance of the complaint the standoff raises fresh questions about the extent to which trump's allies are protecting the Republican president from oversight and specifically if he's acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire is working with the Justice Justice Department to shield the president from the reach of Congress trump though giving no details about any incident denied that he would ever say something inappropriate appropriate on such a phone call representative Adam Schiff the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said he was prepared to go to court to try to force the trump administration and to open up about the complaint. The inspector general has said this cannot wait said Schiff describing the administration's blockade as an unprecedented departure gotcha from law. There's an urgency here that I think the courts will recognize. He said because the administration is claiming. The information is privileged shifts said he he believes the whistle. Blowers complaint likely involves the president or people around him. Donald Trump in a series of tweets has denied everything. Israel's Arab parties set to be the largest non ruling blocking parliament and and could even lead the opposition. If a national unity government emerges from Tuesday's election a surge in turn out gave the arab-dominated joint list thirteen of the Knesset's one hundred twenty seats making it the third largest grouping behind Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party with thirty one seats and Benny Ganz is centrist blue and whites with thirty three that would make the joint list the largest opposition grouping in parliament. If a unity government government take shape a realistic possibility even though Ganz rebuffed Netanyahu's initial invitation no party drawn from the twenty one percent Arab Arab minority has ever been part of an Israeli government this would provide a platform to voice Arab complaints of discrimination against them and give a big platform formed Arab parties that differ with parties drawn from the country's Jewish majority.

This is one of those this is the story of the Saturday night massacre in nineteen seventy two five members of the committee to reelect President Richard Nixon had been caught breaking into the Democratic National Committee's offices at the Watergate hotel the next year a man named Archibald Cox was appointed when it as a special prosecutor to investigate the incident and determine whether the president had been involved in July Cox issued subpoena for secret recordings the president had made of his Oval Office Conversations Nixon refuse he invoked executive privilege to keep the tapes tapes private until finally months later the US Court of Appeals ruled that Nixon had to comply by then the rift between Nixon and the Justice Department had grown and it was clear the president wanted Cox gone and Nixon still didn't want to turn over the tapes why because the implicated him in a vast cover a few days. It's after the ruling. Nixon tried to broker a deal. He said he would not turn over all the tapes but instead would submit a summary of what was in the parts of the tapes related to Watergate Democratic Senator Within listen to the tapes verifying Nixon's Account Cox's answer nope in a statement published in newspapers on October nineteenth nineteen seventy-three Nixon blamed Cox for not accepting his proposal he called it reasonable compromise and ordered Cox to make no further attempts to obtain information on his conversations in response Cox Fox vowed to continue pursuing the tape recordings but Nixon had another more drastic plan to stop Cox from getting the tapes and put it into action the very next day that day a Saturday attorney general Elliot Elliot Richardson was summoned to the White House back at the Justice Department the Deputy Attorney General and three eighths huddled and Richardson's office. They knew why Richardson was being called all to the White House. He was the only one with the authority to fire Cox. Richardson went to the meeting. When he got back confirm their suspicions the president had ordered him to remove Cox. He refused Richardson was prepared to resign as attorney any general instead then the phone rang. It was White House Chief of Staff Alexander Alexander Haig Calling Deputy Attorney General William Ruggles House Richardson would not fight her 'cause it was now his responsibility to do also ruggles house refused and just like Richardson. He drafted resignation letter next in line with firing authority was. US Less Solicitor General Robert Bork he followed Nixon's orders and agreed to fire Cox Nixon won the special prosecutor was gone but the outcry was swift and loud the unprecedented shakeup at the Justice Justice Department became known as the Saturday night massacre and it triggered public and political backlash that accelerated Nixon's eventual downfall that fateful hateful Saturday night after it was all over Cox delivered a statement on national TV.

I thought everything would be so organized. Such a serious operation an answer song not so incompetent and then often give people too much credit too much yeah well. This stuff by people at corporations are full of people and the prison system is full of people say they're people make mistakes but then he'll l. thing i mean it's it's like every single way along. I think that's probably just more evidence of the same type of thing. They don't didn't have the staff to keep things like that up but it was it's epstein of all people some random yeah so that that kinda shows you the he wasn't given some kind of special treatment which i think of anything that the justice department was a little a little bit too cavalier. Maybe they're a little too much like a it's. It's totally fine. If this do ends up dead could be could be but it's <hes> yeah we just that's obviously relation because it could have been the other things that could have been lists.

You know the whole justice. Department can be in disarray but once the attorney general's specifically calls up your prison. It says this guy stays alive. He stays alive so because he didn't do that yeah yeah. He's a conspiracy of emission. Did he deliberately don't do it or did they. Just never at the very worse it's <hes> such extreme negligence that i almost and almost <hes> well. They're looking for scapegoats right now. They fired the <hes>. <hes> director of prisons and his replacement is <hes> the previous director of prisons who retired like seven years ago some some old lady who hasn't worked the prison system for the last seven years. That'll be good yeah so <hes> she. She was doing a better job than than he was yeah. Obviously this stuff needs needs.

Trump talked about silencing stories about alleged affairs, documents show

"President Trump worked directly with his former lawyer Michael Cohen on hush money payments and that he and top campaign aides scrambled along with Mike Account to cover up his alleged affair with a porn star Jeffrey toobin. What can you tell us looking at these new documents just released today about the pattern of communication involving hush money payments that occurred and you know it's really amazing to sort of take step back and look at all the evidence? The Department of Justice has said that this money I need to stormy. Daniels was an illegal campaign contribution okay well. Whose money was it well ultimately it was donald trump's money? He paid Michael Cone to you know he reimbursed Michael Colin who benefited from that illegal campaign contribution it was donald trump because he was the one who's running for president and who directed that the money be paid that word was used by the Department of Justice in a court filing but who's in prison because of this campaign illegal campaign contribution Michael Cone why it just it just seems so crazily unjust that Michael Cohen is prosecuted in Donald Trump is and I just can't I can't fathom how this works. The Justice Justice Department guidelines say that sitting president can't be indicted. Are you surprised that no one else is being charged. That's a little less clear to me. Frankly I mean hope Hicks was involved in some of these phone calls but it's not establish that she you know what exactly she new but it's quite clear what what what the candidate trump new and yes it is true that currently there is a policy that says the president can't be prosecuted but you know he's not going to be president forever and if you if you prosecute Michael Cohen for this. I don't see why you shut this down. As apparently the southern district has done when the real culprit the person who was behind this the beneficiary of it has has gotten away with it. You know it's interesting Gloria because after the Wall Street Journal published its initial story about all of this Michael Cohen according to the documents that we now have texted hope picks was then working for Donald Trump in the campaign and said so far I the only six stories getting little to no traction Hicks same. Keep praying. It's working. So what do you make well. First of all Hicks is loyalty was to Donald Trump and still is I believe and so what she was saying oh good this stormy Daniels L. Story not getting a lot of pickup. It's not getting a lot of traction here. I think the point that the Jeffrey is raising is the right one which is the question about Ho- picks for example. There probably won't prosecutor but you know the F._B._i.. I says that she had called cone and they had a discussion and perhaps trump joined them on the line. Well what were they talking about. Were they talking about stormy Daniels where they talking about access Hollywood. We you know I don't know the answer to that and I think that there are all these questions that are raised and the only one who seems to be sort of walking off is the president of the United States because it was his cover up it was his affair and it was his checks that he he was writing from the Oval Office and Michael Cohen is sitting in jail April. Let's remember what the president said aboard Air Force One. This is April fifth twenty-eight team last year when he was questioned about this watch this

"Everybody's saying that southern district of New York US attorney met privately with Trump before he was appointed. And we know the Trump demands loyalty does so only southern district of New York is still a federal court and Trump can still pardon anybody convicted in that courtroom where our hope lies is with meticias James who is the new attorney general for the state of New York who's already filed some suits against him and the other state attorneys general who have brought up lawsuits, and I think there are a number of them pending. That's where Trump can be held accountable. And obviously he's committed most of his runs in New York. Now. Rather than be hopefully, look at a reality of where we are as far as we know about what happened in two thousand sixteen the perpetrators are all free. We saw it in place. I so struck Jenin sight we saw all the interactions with Russia in plain sight and everything else. Just obvious. Several of them got caught in confessed and have received light or no sentence. Manafort will be pardoned. Oh, let's course, all pardon me. And while with everybody that we know was involved except Dan for got some sentencing. We know he'll be pardoned. All right, all the people at the top of the FBI who were looking into Russia looking into the Russian mob and looking into Trump have been removed ends humiliated in one very publicly lost his pension just days before he would received it all the people at the top of the Justice Justice department have been shifted away or fired except federalist society members. That's right. All of the US attorneys have been replaced. Somebody people who met privately with Trump. Okay. The rich and big corporations have received huge tax cuts now core place for corporations virtually unregulated with no enforcement of of remaining protections. Anyone rich enough can do anything? They want and get away with it. The climate is being killed. Trump has already started using the immense power the government against his. Critical opponents. Remember that tax Bill? Remember how they hitting blue states, especially Howard. I'll of course, they're the ones who got hurt by you can't deduct your state and local taxes, well, New Yorkers and Californians and people in in those big deep blue states are the ones being hurt by that. We already have all kinds of laws designed just to hurt blue states. We have voter ID. We have other laws designed to keep Democrats voting. Now, Trump is saying things like he's going to order the release of undocumented immigrants in democratic districts in order to hurt the Democrats running for office, the immense power of the federal government is already starting to be used against his opponents. Okay. Got it. Tell you to hold on something that just broke the rule of law does not matter anymore in Trump's America. CNN breaking news alert. Donald Trump just told the head of customs and border protection. He wouldn't in him if he was sent to jail for violating immigration law. Donald Trump is saying don't pay attention to the law pay attention to me. I'm the only one that matters. Fuck your rule of law. It's all about me. People me love me. You see? They're listening to your show. That's exactly what I was saying. And they put it as breaking news credit. Unbelievable. It is unbelievable. But here's what I'm trying to say. This is happening. We, you know, we don't we're we're slowly the word we used to hear about how oh my God. This isn't normal. Don't normally rains. We don't hear that anymore. The reason is because it's normalized the frog in boiling water. You know, we're getting hotter and hotter. That water is boiling. They are already doing political prosecutions in such okay?

"The Americas has an extradition treaty with the USO the request. If they went by the book and the Justice Justice department went by the book and did with other thing out. I mean, they would honor that request and less. There are some mitigating circumstances. That would disallow not I think while way thought was this is not a valid claim. It's going it's going to be determined that it needs more evidence. And by that time, I'll have made my flight to back to China, right? Yeah. The whole thing again, like, I don't know. I don't know how this ends, you know, on the one hand all intervene, maybe because it'll help a trade relations. But at the same time, we've would you know, certainly, we're taking a much harder line against Iran stuff right now. So why would we do that? Because it would seem to go counter to that. Like, I don't know. There's a good answer any of this. If you're trying to look for an answer in a very complex geopolitical, text, and one of the things I will say is stuff like this has happened before. But as Tom said, it's not a regular thing. Right. Whether it's Pinochet when he was planning to travel Europe in a Spanish court set like as soon as he puts his foot in the EU country. He gets arrested is all right. I'm not gonna go that way. So I mean for a lot of individuals who are in the similar circumstance like Tom has suggested they have like, okay, not going to go through there because the risk is too great that I might fall afoul of the local jurisdiction. In be arrested, and then held before, you know, another country that extradition treaty with that nation. Yeah. I I mean the way this plays out is if nothing else happens among gets extradited, it looks like that's likely and is transported to the United States and the United States, then put her on trial, and she is on trial for being on the board of a company that violated Iranian sanctions. While that company was had a relationship with law way, and the the point of contention seems like it will be did that company really just act as a subsidiary of. Wow way or was it acting on its own if if the court says, and now that subsidiary was was was separate then you've got a different situation in that companies already wound down, and it didn't do anything. But if it's part of wow way, then you've got a different situation in the court because mung being the CFO of wa now is responsible for this action of this other company. So that's what it's gonna turn on the whole thing is going to go away before it gets to that case because whether this is part of trade negotiations or not it is definitely up for negotiation and the United States will use it to get something out of China. At least that again, is my opinion. I think you're probably right, folks. If you want to get all the.

So amidst all of the hoopla with regard to Paul Manafort and Jerome Corsi, Roger stone, one serious question has been raised has all of this just been prepped for President Trump to pardon Paul Manafort. So as McCarthy continues he says there is a highly unusual twist here the possibility the president from could park Manafort on the theory. The Justice Justice department would never have charged Manafort first, political consulting activities in Ukraine and lavish income he earned in failed to report from it. And then Manafort was charged as a pressure tactic to help Muller try to make a collusion case against Trump under circumstances where there is no evidence of Trump Russia criminal conspiracy, many will bust attack to play for a pardon manafort's alleged breaching of the plea agreement coupled with his public stance that far from lying. He has been resisting Muller's heavy handed attempt to make him. Why this take on things find support in some of President Trump's tweets such as this one from August eighteenth, quote, I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family Justice to twelve year old tax case among other things applied tremendous and unlike Michael Kahn? These to bake makeup studies in order to get a deer such respect for a brave men. So McCarthy says he doesn't think the Muller's report is forthcoming, but it is possible that President Trump could simply pardon Manafort risk impeachment in the house know that he's not going to get convicted in the Senate, and then see what happens right here. And this is the case that is now being made by both Jerome Corsi, and Roger stone is that Muller's selective prosecution of Manafort has resulted in an attempt to make him why. And Muller is now trying to make Jerome Corsi lie and try and make Roger stone life in order to set up a chain of events that looks like Roger stone's course, he asked me as go betweens for WikiLeaks with the Trump campaign. This is what Rome course, he was saying yesterday again, you gotta take everything's room. Course, he says with a very very large grain of salt as the guy who wrote entire book about how Barack Obama's born in. Kenya is not a reliable source. Here's Tucker Carlson. Asking him some questions last night on FOX. I've read accounts in the presser read one in the Washington monthly a liberal magazine saying that you deserve to go to prison. Because you've expressed views that they don't like, do you think that your political views are playing a role in the decision of the special counsel to charge you with a felony? A yes, I think it also by the way, they accuse me deleting emails, and I told them the restore they restored the emails I supposedly deleted through the time machine. This is a political wind shot. So this is courses perspective. It also is. Roger stone's perspective. He says that Roger Roger stone says the germ courses being browbeaten. Of course, they all have a stake in saying this because if they're not being browbeaten, then somebody's going to jail. Probably here's Roger stone trying to defend Jerome Corsi on August, twenty first I posted a tweet that said the Podesta's time in the barrel will come I meant that public scrutiny of the Podesta's rushing business interests as I had been briefed about by Jerry Corsi would be in the media now Jerry Coursey has been browbeat into claiming that was some kind of a cover story. And because I was taking heat. For that tweet. But that's not even logical Laura because my tweet wasn't controversial until six weeks later when Julian Assange published John Podesta's emails, right, except that it would make sense for the tweet to be uncontroversial until then because you said cryptically that it would time there'd be time for John Podesta in the barrel. And then later it was time in the barrel. Which makes it seem like you had some inside information to all of this is questionable Willis result in metaphor being pardoned simply to end this. I really doubt that I think the President Trump would would not do that. I think it'd be a mistake. I think that he would be impeached automatically by the new democratic house. I don't think that President Trump is going in this direction lending credence to the idea. He might go in this direction. Was the fact that yesterday he was in an interview with somebody I believe from the Washington Post, and he was asked about the possibility of pardoning Manafort, he went off the record. And then the reporter said they put any of that on the record. And then they went back off the record that suggests that Trump is thinking thoughts that he doesn't necessarily want people to to know about President Trump. However. Is busy fulminating on Twitter about all this again. I'm not sure how this is helpful to him. He's he's saying the Muller. Witch hunt is a total disgrace. They're looking at supposedly stolen crooked, Hillary Clinton emails, even though they don't want to look at the DNC server, but have no interest in the emails that Hillary deleted as it washed after getting a congressional subpoena. Again, it's true. Hillary should have been prosecuted. It is also true that this does not actually mean that you are innocent of things just because somebody else is guilty of thing coming up anti-semitism, very problematic when it supposedly comes from the right in.

"So as McCarthy continues he says there is a highly unusual twist here, the possibility the President Trump could part Manafort on the theory. The Justice Justice department would never have charged Manafort for its political consulting activities in Ukraine and lavish income he earned and failed to report from it. And then Manafort was charged as a pressure tactic to help try to make collusion case against Trump under circumstances where there is no evidence of Trump Russia criminal conspiracy. Many will detect a play for a pardon in manafort's alleged breaching of the plea agreement coupled with his public stance that far from lying. He's been resisting Muller's heavy-handed attempt to make him. Why this take on things find support in some president from tweets such as this one from August eighteenth, quote, I feel very bad. They pump Manafort his wonderful family Justice to twelve year old tax case. Among other things applied tremendous pressure on him. And Meg Michael Cohen he- refused to bake makeup. Studies in order to get a DEA such respect for brave men. So McCarthy says he doesn't think the Muller's report is forthcoming, but it is possible that President Trump could simply part Manafort risk impeachment in the house know that he's not gonna get convicted in the Senate, and then see what happens right there. And this is the case that is now being made by both Jerome Corsi, and Roger stone is that Muller's selective prosecution of Manafort has resulted in an attempt to make him why. And that Muller is now trying to make Jerome Corsi lie and try and make Roger stone life in order to set up a chain of events that looks like Roger stone and Jerome Corsi act. His go-betweens for WikiLeaks with the Trump campaign. This is what's Rome course, he was saying yesterday again, you gotta take everything's room. Course, he says with a very very large grain of salt as the guy who wrote an entire book about how Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This is not a reliable source. Here's Tucker Carlson. Asking him some questions last night on FOX. I've read accounts in the presser read one in the Washington monthly a liberal magazine saying that you deserve to go to prison because you've expressed views that they don't like, do you think that your political views are playing a role in the decision of the special counsel to charge with a felony? A yes, I think it also part of the way they accused me deleting emails, and I told of the restore they restored the emails I supposedly deleted through the time machine. This is a political wind shut me. So this is course, he's perspective. It also is. Roger stone's perspective. He says that Roger stone. Roger stone says the jerem course, he's being browbeaten. Of course, they all have a stake in saying this because if they're not being browbeaten than somebody's going to jail. Probably here's Roger stone. Trying to defend your Coursey. On August, twenty first I posted a tweet that said the pedestrian time in the barrel will come I meant that public scrutiny of the pedestrians rushing business interests as I had been briefed about by Jerry Coursey would be in the media now, Jerry Corsi has been browbeat into claiming that that was some kind of a cover story. And because I was taking heat for that tweet. But that's not even logical Laura because my tweet wasn't controversial until six weeks later when Julian Assange published John Podesta's emails, right, except that it would make sense for the tweet to be uncontroversial until then because you said it cryptically that it would time there'd be time for John Podesta in the barrel. And then later it was John Podesta's time in the barrel. Which makes it seem like you had some inside information. They're all of this is questionable Willis result in Manafort being pardons and plead to end this. I really doubt that I think the President Trump would would not do that. I think it would be a mistake. I think that he would be impeached automatically by the new democratic house. I think. That they would have a relatively solid basis for doing. So it would look too much like obstruction for them to avoid doing anything else. And we put Republicans in a terrible position..

"It is a difficult standard, a standard that we're all going to have to follow as we move forward through this difficult time because it is going to be a difficult time. But that's the very essence of of of great leadership. As Bill Clinton said, I've said it time and time again, a great leader must have a poor memory. That's how you move forward and get things done for the American people. Well, as the Senate gets ready to hear testimony from President Trump's supreme court nominee the president is. Busy blasting the federal Justice system for daring to prosecute his allies. The president tweeted yesterday too long running Obama era investigations of two very popular. Republican congressmen were brought to a well-publicized charge just ahead of the midterms by the Jeff Sessions Justice department to easy winds now, endow because there's not enough time. Good job Jeff suggests this department declined to comment when asked by the New York Times, the president's claim is false. In that the insider trading investigation of congressman Chris Collins stemmed from actions. He is accused of taking five months after the Trump administration began including messages that prosecutors say, Collins sent in June of twenty seventeen while he was at the White House congressional picket picnic. A handful of Republicans in congress, reacted with dismay to the president's tweets. Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska said the United States is not some banana Republic with. A two tiered system of Justice, one for the majority party and one for the minority party. These two men have been charged with crimes because of evidence, not because of who the president was when the investigation began Senator Jeff. Flake replied, this is not the conduct of a president committed to defending and upholding the constitution, but rather a president looking to use the department of Justice to settle political scores through a spokesman speaker. Paul Ryan responded to CNN DOJ should always remain a-political on the speaker has demonstrated. He takes these charges seriously willy. It's it's, it's almost boring because at this point, his tweets or so unimportant, but you get a sense of where he's trying to take this. Well, you get the sense Benjamin with us once again that he views, the Justice department is an arm of the government. That's there to protect him and knocked to take out. It's duties of protecting the constitution and carrying out criminal Justice. We've seen this time and time again at dates. Back to March of two thousand seventeen when Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Muller investigation that was the original sin for President Trump. Yeah. So he, I mean, the tweet is pretty astonishing because it incorporates so many of his attitudes. You know that the purpose of the Justice Justice department is, you know not to do impartial Justice, but to protect his friends and punish his enemies to advantage him in elections, right? And certainly not to do something that would disadvantage his favourite candidates in an election. And you know, I you'd think that if he even if he believed these things, he'd have the decency to be a little bit of shamed of it, but he's not. And so he just says them out loud. One one problem with doing that is that you know, if you happen to be a special counsel looking for evidence of corrupt intent..
