State and Local Republican Parties Are Turning Ever More Toward Trump

"January six dr day history of the united states cap president trump is spoken many times since we left office. And i don't know if we'll ever see. But i will always be proud of what we accomplish for the american people over the last four years in new hampshire this week downplaying his differences with president trump Over the course of their partnership president trump of course returned to the stage last night as well with that speech in north carolina. Talk about it on our roundtable. We've got rahm emanuel donna. Brazile wall street journal columnist jason ryan riley a senior fellow at the manhattan institute and author of new book. Maverick a biography of thomas sowell and former libertarian member of congress justin amash and carson let me begin with you. The new york times is an interesting analysis of president trump this where they call them diminished but dominating at the same time of course. He had to give up basically his blog this week. He's still has a hold on the republican party. You serve with a lot of republican members of congress. How do you explain it. What republicans do about it well over the last couple years. I've really seen it. Take off. When i first got to congress. I could see this nationalist sort of starting to swell and by about two thousand fifteen. It took hold of the republican party in in a pretty big way at first members of congress when donald trump took office were doubtful about him. They would make fun of them in private. They'd criticize him They'd insult him. Even i thought they going too far and i was a big critic of donald trump and i couldn't believe some of the things that were said about him and then around two or three years ago around the beginning of twenty nine or so. I saw people really start to shift and the party really became donald trump's party completely and that's going to be the way it is over the next few years. I don't think. I don't think we're going back to a different kind of republican party.

A Conversation With Rep. Ayanna Pressley

"Representative Presley. First of all, we love you. So you know it's going to be a hard hitting interview. With. We love you. Let's let's get into it. Okay. So president trump has clearly included playing up unrest in cities in part of his reelection strategy. He's even gone as far as to imply Democrats are to blame for escalating violence at protests, how Progressives and Democrats push for police reform in a world where an attempt at pursuing justice is spun as a rush to anarchy by right wing media and used as an excuse to become violent by law enforcement officials. Say It's thrilled to be here with all of you. Thank you. I'm big admirers in the ends of the two of you and glad to be with you today. You know what can I say about Donald? Trump. These already the dog whistles anymore there are just blaring horns you know wrapped up in incendiary soundbites and cruel policy in calcium administration. So it's very predictable. This is an old play in this sort of in movement building work you know we're used to it. How do we advance policy? The way always advanced policy as a nation nestor movements you. Know a lot of people when they reflect back on those grainy images, those black and white images of protests and demonstrations. In the nineteen sixties, they will define the progress came out of that solely as the voting rights act in the civil rights at but honestly that movement was the blueprint for every progressive piece of legislation thereafter. So this is how legislation is moved its through movement building and social transformation. That is why now things like inviting qualified immunity which bill that I introduced representative Justin Amash are now part of public discourse that is from organizing mobilizing. Conversations around reimagining our budgets to actually value black lives that has everything to do with the power of movement building, and so we have to continue to do that. We're in this moment of national reckoning on racial injustice is a culture shift occurring people. Now, a very unapologetically affirm that black lives matter but now that has to translate into power shift that is reflected in who we elect to office the laws that we right in the budgets that right those are the only. Receipts that matter. So if you believe that black lives, matter than black representation matters than black data matters, then black home ownership matters black entrepreneurialism matters in. So that's how I seek to legislate is in a very precise way and I'll in here by saying the disproportion hate heard her that has been foisted onto black Americans for generations was not naturally occurring. It was legislated was precise in codified lawmaking until the path forward must be one where we are also precise reverend. Barber. Poor. People's campaign someone that I look too often and just someone admire tremendously. Grateful for his moral clarity and conviction says for moment of reckoning the demands, a third reconstruction, and so that's what we need to be squarely focused. Dohrn is what does that third construction looked like and how do we enlist everyone from organizers to lawmakers as community builders in that reconstruction of a better word equitable world IANNA and I'm calling you Iona because I've known you since the ninety s and that's just how it's going to be. When you when you were telling me what's what? Let's not forget? This week. Joe Biden gave a speech and he released an ad where he made the point to clarify that contrary to what the trump camp is saying about him. He doesn't actually like property destruction that has occurred were some protests have occurred? By doing this Biden, allowing trump to control the conversation. Let me just say this there is an effort to infiltrate into undermine the impact of the black lives matter movement, and the fact that these motivation efforts have continued, which is constitutional. Right to assemble to peacefully protest descent is the ultimate patriotism. James Baldwin said I extensively paraphrase like I criticized this country America because I, love it just that much. She can and must be better. I think we have to be careful to make sure that our movements are not co-opted the people that I see in community who are the four of these movements bay, our community builders, not destroyers and the people that are doing that are infiltrators who won the black lives matter movement to be aligned to be mischaracterize. The people doing the work of justice seeking our peacekeepers you know and I, also think it's important that we not completely rewrite history and sanitize what these movements have looked like in the past. No. So people will bring up Dr King and they'll bring up John Lewis. Will John Lewis was who practice nonviolent peaceful protests almost died on that bridge in many times thereafter in fact, many advocates have said we don't know how John Lewis made it out alive because they always focused on.

"Excited. This is a very good day And on this very good day unsurprisingly joined by Matt Welsh the joy of my heart. He just inspires me to be better to be a better human. I'm just grateful for you. Matt Welsh editor at large reason. Magazine and Michael Moynahan Bane of my existence demand just so frustrating. He does things advice news. Gentlemen Hello Hi to be with you amongst living fine Fine Day. Thank you yeah. It's nice to be back and not zoom call. That had what was the last time we had two hundred. Some odd people on it was at the final headcount. The Ateneo at the peak people has it was a good number of people that was a good crowd. New York used to have live podcasts. Like two and a half months ago. I was at one of these things. And there's doing skits and it's these half funny New Yorker Writers and reading like their short stories or their bond mottes and one of them was like all the things that podcast hosts say before introducing their guests from what to do when you're the guest while they're doing their stupid Chitchat back and forth. So let's just keep that in mind as we we extend this rather in that time has already dropped. I can't do it anymore. This is really terrible news fake news but I think we probably showed are hand there who are fantastic as is we've been dying to have on the you know get right to. It are very remarkable guests. The very first libertarian congressman in the United States of America from Grand Rapids Michigan. Third District. Street has been representing faithfully in dutifully. Mr Justin Amash candidate for the presidency of the United States of America. congressman. Thank you for joining US sake. Meal thanks for having me on. Big O's donning. The hoodie today. Looking very fresh this is the is this the second congressman. It's basically Massey. Masha who've had not playing type or anything like that. No I think that might be true but congressman. Thank you for making some time to join us. You've been making the rounds doing a lot of media. I've seen you on CNN and every place else. I appreciate you setting aside a little time to chat with us today. It's been busy part. It's part of the job this. This will obviously be your most intense intense interview. And I just WanNa start from the beginning and ask you. Why are you running for office? Why do you hate America and want to destroy this country? It seems to be like the the way most of these conversations began and I just WanNa say from the outset. We're not going to begin there because I think it's a stupid question. I think it's absolutely asinine. You can run for whatever office you like. And if your candidate is insufficient lay engaging and wonderful and people decide to vote for someone else. They're not a spoiler are candidate. This is how it works. It's part of the process. Shut up now congressman. You don't have to agree with that and you don't have to say anything if you don't want to because you've answered this question one hundred thousand times but I just wanted to put it out there because I don't really want to go there again. Yeah well you guys know about me and you know why I'm running. Which is we need someone different than these two other candidates. We need someone who's going to respect the constitution and restore our system government's the way it's supposed to work so that people have some representation in Washington and right now they don't have any representation and I think when you look at these other two candidates in the general election at least I still have to earn the Libertarian Party nomination. I don't WanNa take any of that for granted because I'm GonNa have to work hard earned the trust of Libertarians. But when we get to the general election if I'm fortunate enough to get there then you'll see a big contrast between the candidates and you have two candidates who represent the old way of doing things who want big government who want to control your lives and I'm the candidate who's going to try to return power to the people protect your rights and respect the people. Can we start briefly by just chatting about where you are in this process? Now you've announced that you have an exploratory committee. I guess WHO's looking at the race with you. Whatever that means you're also engaged with the L. P. at this point. How does the process work in terms of you becoming the nominee for the L. P? There will be a convention coming up and they're working through how to set up the convention because they were going to have an in person convention and now right the Crow virus. It's not going to be in person likely anytime in the near future. A little more complicated. Yeah the question is whether it be an online convention or whether they'll delay don't have an person convention or something else so they're working through all that for my part what's important is that you have a fair process that respects the delegates and is fair to the candidates. I want every candidate to feel that they got a fair shot including our campaign. We all want to be treated fairly under this process. And that's what's important that nobody feels like this was some kind of Set One way or the other either four. My Candidacy Oregon's my candidacy. So and every other candidate feels the same way about their own campaign. So let's just make sure it's a fair process. I've got to go out and talk the delegates and earn their respect and trust to be clear. They've agreed to agree in about ten days about where to maybe hold a convention sometime before July fifteen if in grand rapids that this thing is I think it's important that we not postpone it too late because if you postpone a too long it makes the calendar more challenging and we want to make sure we get on the ballot and all these states too so there are a lot of aspects involved in this campaign has to get up and running and it'd be better if it doesn't go all the way to July or something like that can I Back back up to this small bit because we do have a lot of listeners. Who Know of you. Don't know the back story as such an would. Maybe because we have brought listener base people that maybe say oh. This is the libertarian. Guises Libertarian Hopefully Libertarian Party candidate. But you weren't. Of course always libertarian. You're independent and prior to that Republican. Can you give us a little kind of sketch of the kind of arc of your career as a Republican in Y and how you left the Republican Party? Which I think a lot of people who don't really know you Would you be interested in in finding out? Well I've always been a small l libertarian and I probably think of myself as more on the classical liberal side of things for those who are maybe a little bit wonky about it I. I'm more of an FA high guy than anything else and their other. Parts of the Libertarian. Polity that are in different parts of the spectrum and think different things about libertarianism. But that's where that's where I am so I've been kind of anti authoritarian since I was a kid and didn't really describe myself as a libertarian. For a lot of my life when I got older I started to really realize where I fit in the political world and I spent some time. Reading and studying a libertarian. Got So hike is a guy who really came up. I for me when I really was immersed in a lot of this. I was looking at the state government and seeing total disaster total mass brought on by Republicans and Democrats. And I thought at that time it'd be good to take a crack at it to run for office as a Republican at that time. I didn't really think about any parties. Other than the Republicans Democrats in those were the ones that were on my radar As a twenty something year old and I decided to run as a Republican and thought that I could maybe cast the Republican Party. In more of a libertarian Image. Where you know. They weren't that far off on a lot of the things they talked about in practice. They weren't doing it but at least they were talking about it so I thought well maybe I can bring people along. Got The Republican Party. It was Obviously well received by constituents. They elected me to Congress after one term in the State House so it worked it was successful and people liked what I was talking about and when I got to Congress at first I thought well this is a disaster again. Just like the State House but we can make some headway and the first few years. I thought we were making headway. I thought we were improving the political system. I thought we were improving the Republican Party and moving it in a more liberty oriented direction and more representative direction than than where it had been. But then I would say about. I don't know twenty fourteen twenty fifteen. Things started to take a really bad turn in the party. You had a few people at the top Started with banner of course who really started to lock down on the legislative process and tried to wrestle control away from the members who are interested in some of this change or interested in making more of Liberty Oriented Party or more representative party. And then you saw a gradual creeping of nationalism into the party's messaging that happened before Donald Trump. I'd start to see town halls and so I I could sort of see. Donald trump coming ahead of time before he was even a candidate. You could see this Atari to grow at town halls where you hear people on the left and the right talking in a more nationalistic way. Oh Yeah Yeah. I definitely heard that and I was still doing very well. In My district win these elections with good margins but I started to more and more hear things about nationalism and protectionism and things that were really counter to the Republican Party of say the eighties and nineties which had moved in more of a Oregan Direction. If you will. You not necessarily quite libertarian. But a little more free market and classical liberal in in many ways so Yeah I saw it coming in and now I don't even really recognize the party. It's very different from the party. I was a part of in around twenty ten. Let's say it's a very different party now. Just all along these same lines. I think a lot of people when they hear your story or encounter at the sensibility. Is that you somehow abandoned the president and abandoned the party. I was rereading the royal. You wrote around the time that you left the Republican Party. It seemed very obvious that your concern wasn't merely what was happening in the Republican Party. But some sort of broader change that you're seeing with respect to the role of partisanship in the country. Speak to that's absolutely right. Both parties have their own sets of problems. And you're not seeing the Democratic Party Act in any representative way. Either what I'd like to see the government where you take all these ideas and liberty can come into the government conservatives can come in progressives can come in and we can all debate these ideas in front of the American people and let them make decisions based on what happens in our debates in our discussions and judge us on the outcomes reproduce instead. What really happens in both parties is a few people at the top control.

"The Clinton impeachment. Okay so it would not be taking. The vote is not a McConnell breach of protocol like stealing Supreme Court seat okay Far be it from opening arguments to defend Mitch McConnell but but but that is appropriate so then the question is are there. Republican senators at least three with an asterisk Four to lock it down. Who are going to vote in favor of hearing testimony and the developments elements this week right the parks and in particular what I want to start off with our developments that are likely to push folks in the direction of the required testimony? So you WANNA negative on it you can say you know nothing matters to any Republican and and I can't tell you that that's an insane anthony say But I can give you sort of the best case scenario about what these developments mean and how likely they are to push push us in a direction towards having an actual trial instead of just having a sham trial.

Where will Trump go on gun control?

"And depressingly ali. It seems as often as not that by the time we reconvene. There's been another mass shooting this time. It was in texas where a thirty six year old man stopped by cops after they're being fired from his job on saturday got shoot-outs at a traffic stop then fled opened fire on on basically whoever crosses path killing seven people injuring twenty two you before himself being gunned down by police meanwhile just to keep the mood as grim as possible gear on tuesday hurricane doreen as we speak his <hes> just parked over the bahamas right now wreaking devastation while florida prepares for the very worst hi everyone well cheer joined by my colleagues nicholas be peter's sermon and catherine megan ward good morning folks out. Hey matt so catherine. After the last mass shooting events in el paso texas texas the anti immigrant mass shooting the president's started or kind of kickstarted some bipartisan negotiations on a possible gun control deal over this weekend. We i heard from and elizabeth. Nolan brian has already written about mike pence. I think floating that part of that might involve some kind of expedited death penalty action the same time that clip that we just listen to the president reminded people that most of the kind of most talked about measures that are contemplated after these events wouldn't have retroactively. We've kind of done much of anything so what is your sense catherine as the guardian of the second amendment in american politics. What is your sense of where trump is and is is likely to go given that he unlike mitch mcconnell for example appears to be kind of driving these discussions negotiations. I have no sense of where donald trump is likely to go. I have no idea what is going to happen. <hes> so right. He's been alluding to this package. That's working its way through congress or something thing it may or may not contain anything having to do with background checks in may or may not contain other forms of gun control. It's super unclear to me and i'm paying attention so i can't imagine what the rest of the american public thinks is going on right now the the detail though <hes> which you alluded to and which leads noah brown covered this morning about the possibility that we would expedite <hes> executions of convicted mass murderer strikes me as the most wrong thing we could do here. Expediting executions is not a good idea. This is a very very small number of cases getting executed faster which will still not not mean getting executed quickly to be clear and thereby implying that we will somehow remove some of the layers of legal protections accorded awarded to the accused and convicted is not a good idea is not healthy it does not actually result in fewer mass shootings in any mechanism that i can envision dan and it almost certainly will abbreviate due process in ways that other people will suffer for not just mass shooters it also comes on the heels of recent is an execution in texas where an innocent man was put to death so you know the the death penalty it. I that's not gonna go anywhere but it it trump's reaching for that. I think for grounds the fact that we're talking about symbolic action here he in the past you know he did push for a bump stock banner or enacted one through executive action. He's he's not averse to gun control legislation that has seen any gun control legislation on the part of republicans as seen as tantamount to shredding the second amendment and they're against it but trump has shown some willingness to do stuff it turns out from early reports that the shooter here <hes> you know that he was turned down for based on a background check already he did did not pass the existing limits <hes> in texas for a background check so it's not clear what would have prevented him and i think that gets to you know the first question with mass shootings is what is the kind of symbolic action that is going to be put into place and trump now is signaling to his supporters that he is going to back away from any kind of gun control legislation because they want that in less it something completely ridiculous and useless like expediting executions a you know capital punishment <hes> which will have no effect on anything but by the same token the other question. I think the more substantive one is whether or not we actually are in the midst of an uptick doc of mass shootings and after dayton and el paso. I talked to james alan fox for the reason podcast. Who's the preeminent criminologists he's been studying the substance surly eighties and he points out two things. One is that based on current trends. There's no reason our current events. There's no reason to believe that we're in a massive uptick of mass shootings or of mass killings and it's important to get those distinctions right so that anything we may or may not have any effect on what happens because we're talking about something. You know a series of events that are not in fact growing. They're such rare events. It becomes very difficult to act with any kind of meaning and and and effectiveness on reducing the number of deaths in mass shootings because they are such events. Peter isn't that <hes> though at the same time kind of you know. That's the that's that's doctor. Spock not doctor spock but actually what's his name. Mr slot mr spock. Sorry gosh been a a long time dodgers back. I think once <hes> pediatricians to ask about whether doctor spock he's actually the big on gun control yeah actually doctor benjamin benjamin spock also against the vietnam war whereas mr spock frequently used a <hes> disarming vulcan neck pinch instead of a phaser and he always said his face are too stunned right not to kill. I don't know if it was always. I like and he did try to kill kirk in that one episode. He was driven mad praying. It was driven mad by urgent urgent that where you just <hes> channeling the washington post our file of justin amash there because i think we should note that there is a pretty good washington post profile justin amash they came out this morning and it includes a quote from him telling a woman who had lost friends in the two thousand seven virginia tech mass shooting. You don't need to be scared of this stuff statistically speaking it's not common also noting that justin amash is eyebrows or sort of pointy in that same graph yes and he was wearing when i saw him that same week we went out to dinner and he was wearing a t shirt that peter peter will certainly now and probably the other view as well but it's a reference to a famous episode. The second generation or someone leaves second generation. Whatever the next generation the beat generation poet turned assassin. No i had to go to great lengths to try to culture explain to me. What any of it meant that did i just was it was as useless as the liz. Oh conversation that we had just before was laughing assimilated matt. I had to do with like a someone who only speaks literary allusions peter's ringing off your your spock. Dr your your peter tangle begging you bagging you say is that ringing off your peter team goal ever again accent yeah. What were you going to say. We're going to say about my question. We always go to the well actually mass shootings or not all that common yet the the body counts are getting higher. There's no question but the body counts are getting higher. Given you know terrorism isn't all that wasn't all that common back when when left aides were the hijacking planes in the early nineteen seventies but we overreacted to terrorism in the wake of nine eleven matt to the enduring detriment of our civil liberties send our our basic freedoms culture so i think it is actually you know i hate actually has been kind of canceled as a word but it's it's important to to figure out what the social reality is because otherwise we're going to implement policies that are addressing kind of phantom fears or things that are not import so right and your point is taken counts are getting higher on the individual events us clearly over the last five years so peter. Let's go to a policy question. <hes> which is comma harrison worker out there saying we need mandatory buybacks. What is the logistical problem with that notion so let's let's let's start by actually just talking about the politics of this. They're saying it because <hes> mandatory buybacks poll increasingly well and if you look at the quinnipiac poll well <hes> recently i it it polled the question of mandatory gun buyback so that's when you have to sell your your weapon that meets some certain criteria maybe not all weapons is but weapons that meet some certain criteria perhaps the same criteria that defined assault weapons that kind of nonsense criteria that didn't actually matter in terms of gun power power and that sort of thing but if you would be required then to sell it back to the government and they would they would pay you for it. <hes> we've seen gun buy back programs before in other countries particularly in australia that was one that president obama like to cite and has gotten some attention from liberals who have argued that it was relatively successful. I think the australia model title the australia <hes> what happened in australia just isn't really applicable in the united states. It's not clear that it was a success on its own terms in terms of reducing shootings. Ah murders and suicides which is the argument that the is that it did the trajectory was already going down for murders and suicides and the the other thing about the australia program is that they started from much lower baseline in terms of gun ownership and they were still only able to buy back about a third of the weapons that they were trying trying to get and so if you think of the united states where there are several hundred million guns in circulation perhaps as many as four hundred million guns and you manage to buy back third of them so let's say it is successful as australia. You still have two hundred and fifty million or so <hes> guns in private hands in the united added states and so just in terms of you in that still leaves you with a country that just has a much higher prevalence of gun ownership a much higher a number of private of guns in private hands than any other country and so you think the problem if this is the argument that you wanna make from the left. It's not the libertarian argument to be declare but if if liberals want to argue that the problem is very high rates of gun ownership therefore we should do what australia did you're still going to be left with very high rates of gun john ownership and there's not really clear answer about how to get get to the other side of of the liberal argument here in <hes> without changing the second amendment and if that's what liberals wanna do then that's that's what they should be proposing and that's the conversation to use a another cancelled word. That's the conversation we should be having but it's not the the conversation we're having we're talking about red flag laws that would basically attempt to do pre crime. We're talking about using algorithms to try and sort of figure out you know who's who's going to be doing what in advance that would that would at best be probably ineffective and at worst quite likely would target people who have done nothing wrong. <hes> were talking about the background checks that in this case in the case of texas shooter he he failed a background check. The background checks stopped him from buying weapon as far as i could tell and so it's just very difficult to sort of work through the policy solutions regardless of your priors even if you believe that guns are the problem and to be clear. I'm not saying they are but even if you you start then what do you do and what is your answer is. <hes> that you often get in response as well we should you can't just do nothing and if you look at that new new york post editorial that <hes> called for the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. They kind of have the sentence in there. That's like well. It's not clear that the assault weapons ban did anything it's really unclear whether it was effective and and in fact it is unclear whether it's effective. There's not great evidence that it was effective at stopping <hes> stop murders. It's it's really a problem i on the other hand. I think it's also a little bit of a problem for gun rights supporters and for libertarians because the more attention these things get the more often they happen and the more deadly they are the more public support is going to be built for doing something regardless of whether it works and regardless of whether there's good evidence that this is is going to be an effective tool for stopping mass shootings murders and suicides and that's why you see increasing support for programs like a mandatory gun buyback yeah just in my previously appointed role as defender of the second amendment. Just wanna be clear like mandatory. Buyback is a shitty euphemism. Its confiscation. That's that's what it is and i think you know in the same way that we broadly speaking oppose indiscriminate application of eminent domain. I would actually go so far as to oppose. It was all eminent domain. Even though there's a constitutional justification for it like the the phrase buyback in most people's minds sounds like this the thing that they've seen on their local news where the police department runs a little program and somebody brings in their grandpa's gun that they don't need any more and everyone gets twenty bucks fox and a pat on the head that is not what a federal mandatory buyback would look like it would look like the dark dark picture painted in austin brags very very funny video have a gun free america in five steps which is violence and <hes> and <hes> armed standoffs and <hes> <hes> many much many many many more gun deaths than we currently are expensive so catherine i want to <hes> just in the interests of responding to the arguments that get made here when i see discussion of gun buy backs and the

Joe Walsh: Strongly considering primary challenge to Trump

"Donald trump's approval rating among republicans sit somewhere between eighty or ninety percent which is pie although that comes with a bit of an asterisk asterisk which is that trump is driven a lot of people away from identifying as republicans people like michigan congressman justin amash who called for trump's impeachment and who was a republican in good standing but has now switched to being an independent. He's the kind of person who wouldn't show up one of those polls. Here's the fundamental problem. There are a number of self described conservatives who do not like like donald trump but most don't really have any political base or power and that's the problem facing anyone wants to mount a primary challenge the president and the g._o._p. And yet interestingly thinly enough there are people who want to give it a shot anyway for massachusetts governor. William weld is in he has declared he is running now. Former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford former former illinois congressman and talk show radios joe walsh appear closer during the race and challenging the president and anthony scaramucci says he's going to rustle up a bunch of ex trumpers to take the president on as well ultimately the stakes. Here may be mostly about donald trump. Som psyche almost certainly going to trounce any republican challenges him and yet. There's a lot of reporting that suggests team is obsessed with staving off primary challenges here discuss a reagan administration official and share the center for equal opportunity linda chavez and former tea party activists been how the author of the immoral majority new book about evangelical and trump in co host of the fifth estate podcast linda. I don't know i guess i'm skeptical optical but i'm seeing all those noises it looks like sanford and walsh will get in scaramucci is trying to rustle up some group of folks. Is there anything here you think well. I mean if you look back back at what happened to president. George herbert walker bush in nineteen ninety-two he did get challenged by pat. Buchanan obviously buchanan's challenge well. I think stronger than any of the people we've been talking about are going to be able to muster against trump did harm him and i think it set him up for ultimate failure in the general election. I think that's what this is. All about. None of these guys that we're talking about are likely to defeat donald trump unless trump goes evan farther off the rails and then we've seen him so far but being able to damage him being able to come at him as walsh might from the right could could have some impact and might dampen

"How is congressman Justin Amash thinking about his future the Michigan lawmaker was the only house Republican who supported impeachment proceedings against the president until he stopped being a Republican leaving the party July fourth he is not ruling out a third party challenge to the president he spoke with NPR's to mac Ammash's office is barren a pile of boxes sat by the wall and framed posters sit on hung on the floor seven months since they moved in it's fitting for a lawmaker who is always been more cerebral a person who others have observed is more interested in ideology than attention Justin Ammash is the best libertarian there's been in Congress in my lifetime David does is the executive vice president of the Cato Institute a libertarian think tank he really has been a lot of ways what people in Washington call a work horse not a show horse Ammash sat with NPR to explain exactly what happened the problem is undying party loyalty where people put parties above all else it's not just trump he said the president didn't start these problems but he certainly escalated the problems a big part of it is tone and rhetoric if you have someone at the top who's always angry at others then that trickles down and affects a lot of other people there have been very few independence in the house of representatives without a party lawmakers are less likely to get an assignment to a committee where they can influence legislation you have less opportunity to do good for your district that's Virgil Goode who left the Democratic Party to become an independent in nineteen ninety nine after supporting a different impeachment process that of Bill Clinton he lost his committee assignment but later joined the GOP gaining a coveted committee seat for his part a marsh formally quit the Republican conference this week and gave up his spot on the oversight panel but being an insurgent is not new for the congressman Ammash was first elected in the tea party wave of twenty ten swept into Congress by promising to support smaller government he spoke about being disillusioned about how some of those individuals in his view lost their way and became trump boosters instead it's disheartening to see people who came to Congress of me set aside a lot of the things they ran on and those one time allies didn't exactly approve of his decision to leave the party Republican Ted Yoho said all parties have problems he was talking about the dysfunctions that we see their brand but up here on both sides through the whole process mark meadows the chair of the pro trump freedom caucus and a former ally of Ammash's was Curt you know he's an independent member of Congress always has an independent spirit so now he can exercise that more fully Ammash says that his next step is running for reelection in the house as an independent but Keira's David Bose says that Ammash has a substantial national following as a libertarian and could pose a threat to trump in twenty twenty he certainly well connected and highly respected within the broad libertarian movement so in that sense he's got a base the trump campaign wants to keep Michigan in its column in twenty twenty the one there by a tight margin of approximately ten thousand votes in twenty sixteen out of four point eight million votes cast Ammash could change the calculus if he ran well he wouldn't rule a presidential bid out he also wouldn't rule it in I don't think anyone can commit in life that nothing will change but if Ammash decides to stay on his current course he will be the only independent in the house of representatives and the first since two thousand.

Robert Mueller: Charging Trump was not an option

"From the Star Tribune special counsel, Robert Mueller said Wednesday that charging President Donald Trump with a crime is quote, not an option unquote, because a federal rules, but he used his first public remarks on the Russia investigation to emphasize that he did not exonerate, the president, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so Mueller declared now. No, those remarks have been seized on, by Democrats, of course, as Mueller winking, and nodding and implying that you guys need to impeach this guy because I can't go after I can't charged with a crime, but you can. And I'm not saying he didn't do anything. I'm just saying. I wasn't able to charge him with having done something. And the ball is in your court, which could be characterized, like, if, if he really did think that Donald Trump. Had broken the law in a significant way. And that's the way he articulates it with a wink nod how we how have hearted and weak and cowardly to do that. But of course you know the the, the effort here. Seems to be to try to. Put an air of legitimacy, and objectively on these proceedings over the course of the past two years. And I just don't think it's going work out for them. Another report here, the start to be in talks about the response surprising Washington, with brief remarks Wednesday Mueller in indicated it's up to congress to decide what to do with his findings the special counsel reiterated that bound by just -partment policy charging sitting president with a crime was not an option, but he also stressed. He could not exonerate Trump. Instead, he cited that same policy to say the constitution requires a process of their than the criminal Justice system. Of course, the implication, there is impeachment. So here's my call to arms or my challenge to Democrats, and to Justin Amash, and anybody else who thinks this president has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. And as deserving of impeachment do it. Do it. What is stopping you? What is holding you back? Now, this article here that I just quoted from goes onto report about the conflict within the Democratic Party between the presidential potential contenders and junior congressional members who are a little bit more hot headed. Versus the leadership, Nancy Pelosi does not want to move forward with impeachment, and her rationale is it's going to be divisive. That's what she's saying. Right. It's gonna be divisive in reality. It's in the toilet Alice's. Right. The, the only consideration that is dominating the democratic mind right now is what can we do to leverage this for twenty twenty what is going to be the best position to be in to go through an impeachment percent because here's the thing if the if the impeach him now. Then the danger from their perspective. The danger is that the proceedings conclude and nothing comes of it, right. Like, regardless of whether or not the vote for impeachment. Goes one way or the other if there is no follow up if he's not ousted from office, which seems unlikely then he goes into twenty twenty being able to claim further exoneration because, look, they, they gave me their best shot and I'm still here. Right. So in that sense, they will have spent their amunition as it were so the path that they're trying to take instead is to keep the investigation, hacky sack up in the air, if they can just keep asking questions and sewing doubt and conjuring up reasons to investigate this that and the other thing and subpoena this person that person if they can keep doing that through twenty twenty then their hope is that. They can leverage the doubt that, that process creates in order to as a wedge in order to get Trump out of office and replace him. With whoever their nominee is. I don't think that's gonna work.

Of course, they don't have it. And so the, the needle that the Democrats are trying to thread is to keep your interest to the interest of the independent voter. Focused on this for another. How how many months are we talking about here, like eighteen months? That's a long time to keep people thinking about this and carrying about this in the absence of any new developments.

"The American people don't want impeachment and the imperative and people are sick of these investigations. But the democrat base is not Representative of the American people, they're irregular Americans their crackpots. Their base has been radicalized by the media, quite frankly by CNN and MSL SD in the New York Times, and the rest of them. They won't take no for an answer. So they're trying to figure out. We've got are rabbit base. And then we have other Americans. They're not sure to go with the rabbit base or other Meccan. So what they're trying to do is drive down the president's poll numbers, and if they can get them down to like thirty five thirty three percent then they figure. They have shot at impeachment without having backfired on them. But you ladies and gentlemen, what they're not taking into account as you. They listen to Mitt Romney, they listen to Justin Amash. They listen to it. They're not Representative of you. The establishment. Or wack jobs and so forth. Now, Donald Trump replied to Nancy Pelosi.

"So, like, yes. Okay. That, that is a, a strategic calculus, that like can be tricky. But. In individual cases, and specifically in this individual case, a Democrats aren't going out a credible challenge to Justin Amash in twenty twenty that is probably not. It is more likely that he's going to get successfully primaried who which is already coming up. People who are now changing their Twitter banners to show them and Trump standing together in, I'm sure. I mean so, so that, but, like it's not the Democrats are looking at just Nevada and going, gee, that was a really winnable seat for us. If we praise what he just did that will become a lesson. That's not gonna happen at all. And also yoke come election day, the people who you may lose might be the people who you agree with an individual cases, like a lot of the seats that Republicans lost in two thousand eighteen work, people who were more likely to cross the island certain things. So the Republican minorities, a more conservative one than the Republican majority was. But like that doesn't necessarily change the calculus of when you send out statements say, you know, praising one member of a party and asking when other members will join him like that is the thing you can do, even if you're going to organize against that same incumbent coming into November twenty twenty I just think that, like the pocketbook issues. And the fact that the president is a corrupt person are not distinct themes, right? Like if you had a. A politician, whose integrity was unimpeachable. Right. And nobody had any hint of scandal about the guy but he was pushing some unpopular healthcare policy ideas. And also he got campaign contributions from health insurance companies should not be like befuddle. Do we focus on healthcare? Or do we focus on his ties to industry, right? Like it's not like to not hit. It's like it's normal stuff. So like if the president is taking shady. Bribes and also you have these pocketbook issues wanna hit him on like, it's all of a piece, right? Like if he's obstructing Justice right to protect his cronies. If he's firing the FBI director to make sure the criminal investigations cannot trust his friends, and he's also appointing regulators who are too friendly with businesses and they're letting dump toxic chemicals. Right. Like that's all one thing you know. And if like one even if even a far right? Republican can see that there's something wrong with the way Trump is conducting himself. Like that's like that's all the better. The thing is, though, that, like I often urged people to make the actual argument attempting to make. And so there are a lot of Republicans who are well aware that Trump's actions or Trump's behavior is inappropriate edging on impeachable. They just don't care. I mean, it's we get into the sunk cost argument, which is actually something that's been going back and forth between Josh hammer and writer at the bulwark and a couple of other conservatives, but just the I think it should be very clear that if Republicans responded to a marshes thread by saying, like, no, we recognize that you feel this way, but we just don't care..

"But is nonetheless, a Republican from critic he's saying, I want to impeach Donald Trump, this would be for, for a Democratic Party. That was interested in getting rid of Donald Trump, a good opportunity to come back to Phil Scott. Right. Who clearly feels under pressure to make some kind of gestures toward breaking with Trump to be like, well, do you agree, you're not the first one like a house member from a much more conservative constituency than you is saying this. Like, like where are you fill Scott? Any Phil Scott says. Yeah. Fuck it. Right. I've already thrown Trump under the brush with the wealth endorsement. I'm also for impeachment right? Yeah. Pressures kind of do. Is going to be like, oh, I will forgive you for Dorsey, my primary challenger so that ship is say now you have a problem for Susan Collins, who liked Phil Scott is a statewide elected official in New England state, but Maine is not as left-wing from aunt so Collins is in the classic Republican squeeze where she's not going to win as a die hard one hundred percent Trump loyalist but she's also not gonna win going down. Fighting with Donald Trump Democrats really, really, really need to win some Senate races. It looks like they're going to probably not win a main Senate race because Collins is very popular in Maine. But, like the Democratic Party to govern needs to make trouble with Susan Collins, Phil Scott agreeing with just in a mosh about impeachment would create a problem for Collins, right? And this is like I mean, I, I don't even know I need to explain this, but like this is politics. It's like Bill, one step at a time like a far right house member deciding that because he's an idiosyncratic guy who's mad. The freedom caucus having thrown a lot of their principles underboard, and now he's going to be for impeachment like that is an opportunity. But instead Democrats have been ever since Manafort backed out of his cooperation agreement. Democrats have been running scared. They've been treating bad news for Trump as bad news for them, right? 'cause like their dream scenario was like Paul Manafort, just like hands over reams of documents that, like show Donald Trump like taking cash for once that, that that wasn't going to happen. Democrat started worrying, what if Muller says he obstructed Justice, then we're going to have then the then we're going to have to impeach him but we don't want to impeach him. And I get it actually like it's, it's a tough tactical situation. But like it's politics, you've got to try to get out of the tactical situation, like a mosh is creating an opportunity. They have all these subpoenas going. Trump is stonewalling, all of them like Democrats are mad about that. And like you gotta say it at some point that, like what's going on here is this guy. Yeah. I mean, I think running scared is not necessarily wrong. Young but fundamentally what's going on is the Chuck Schumer in Nancy Pelosi believe fervently to win twenty twenty Democrats need to be hitting pocketbook issues need to be hitting the kind of, like things that they know voters like it when government does like education, health healthcare, and that kind of thing and that, you know, they should be hitting Donald Trump on that, and, you know, not because of the Russia stuff so much. Which fine it that I mean, it certainly makes sense as a strategy..

"Mark Levin show on databank camp. That is got Robbins, Jamie. Markley out today. Thank you very much for being here. Okay. So Scott Republican Representative Justin Amash has come out in favor of. Republican just she says he's read the mullahs report cover to cover. It says, you know what he what, what is described in laid out in the mall report is grounds for impeachment. What do you think about that Scott? I think he's an idiot, but I think he's a total moronic idiot, and I don't know what the motivation is behind this. I really don't other than his district may tend to lean a little bit toward the to the left and he's afraid, he's got a play this thing because there's no way. Yeah. I mean I don't get it. What you understand this guy? I don't understand this guy. I think there are a lot of times where he's been critical of the president and the first time and he's been critical of the Republican party as a whole and it a lot of it probably does have to do with politics. And he's if he's reading the tea leaves of his district and saying, well, look, I gotta worry about reading whatever it may be. I think it's funny to see a lot of Democrats and a lot of liberals on national television right now saying, oh my gosh. This is a huge c change moment right now. Right. A lot of people who couldn't have named Justin Amash Masha. You know who he was? You know, here's the thing. I mean this used to be a hot button topic. And I haven't heard much about it recently. But we talk about getting corruption on the politics. We talk about the guys sticking their finger in the air and not really having opinion on anything until here back like I'm supposed to think this way. Right. We don't hear about term limits anymore. They used to be a big deal that people would demand term limits. Because so this kind of garbage Whitten keep happening. It's like if you, if you don't have to worry about being reelected after two terms or whatever, maybe some of this stuff would stop and things would actually get done. Yeah. And then the counter argument is that, well, if they're if they know that there's a time's up, all they'll do is spend their years in congress. Cultivate contact with lobbyists and all that do that. Do at eight right, exactly. That's always my counter argument to that. It's like it's already being done. It's already there. I just I just think the fear of not being re-elected leads to dump statements like this one where it's like, hey now and you know what? This does this adds fuel to the democratic fire like see this is by partisan. Well, sure it's not. No, it's, it's one guy. No one's ever heard of. Right. It's it's one person. It's not. Yeah, it's, it's not there's no sea change has guy that's just not going to happen. And I don't think it should not just because I'm a supporter of this president. But, but if you look at polling data right now, most Americans are not there yet. I feel like every time we talk about it. I feel like is, is glazing over again, like all right. Doing this again. Well, then here's something that's totally fresh Scott immigration reform. No one's ever been talking about that. Rafu over President Trump. He is continuing to go out and try to sell that he's got a rally tonight in Pennsylvania. I think which is probably more of a campaign style event. Anyway. So I mean that's, that's probably going to be off the chain tonight. I would think so one would get a at least President Trump was interviewed on FOX last night. And they talked about the new merit-based immigration reform plan. Here's a little bit more from that interview. I wanna make sure that anybody that comes into country comes in through merit that very well. What you show all the time, and we wanna coming in through merit as what we have to have we can't do the others. It's just not possible. And what we want to do is put up a very strong border. We'll have by the end of next year four hundred fifty to five hundred miles built of the water will of the wall itself. And what a wall and it's imperative you know, I've read so much where two Democrats like to say you don't even we're gonna have drones flying around yet. Thousands of people that drone doesn't do a thing, and we're changing laws as rapidly as we can get him through the courts. But, you know, better than anybody was fighting a court system before ending the Democrats. The Democrats want open border, that means crime, and we have great French statistics. They'd be even better if we didn't have all of this coming in between the drugs and many of the wrong, people, people that have records, people that have criminal records. So we're making very sure that those people don't get in with. We're going to be working on this. You know. Sometimes he gets a little bit of diarrhea of the mouth and starts to try to describe stuff. I, I think this is another one of those topics that has gotten to the point where yes, people's eyes glaze over as well, because regardless of what you believe your for the wall against the wall. You're more open borders. You're against open borders. Whatever I think we can all be United in agreement that nobody really wants to get anything done apparently, at least if you're judging based on the actions that have been taken by congress over the last several years if not decades. Nobody's really, well, it's going to be here because it's we they have taken the stance for a long time that the president and Republicans manufactured at crisis that didn't exist. Yeah. I don't know how long they can continue to tell that tall tale. When you've got even liberal media outlets who were there going. Yeah. This is a problem. Oh, and I don't know how long you can continue to deny the obvious. And by the way, there's been another death at the border, but tragic story that just got reported today, US government says a sixteen year old died at a border patrol station in south, Texas, that is the fifth death of a minor that's been apprehended at the border, the cause of death hasn't been released yet or found out yet. They say the teenager was found unresponsive this morning during a welfare check at one of the agencies stations. The dad causes death is unknown. The agency didn't say why the teenager had been detained for a week but that he was due for placement for youth. That's operated by the department of health and human services. And so as you have more and more people showing up sadly, and we'll see what happens here if there was anything, if there was anything wrong done there, then somebody ought to be punished for it, but it could also be that there are systems that are being overwhelmed right now because nobody has shown any interest in actually getting anything, exactly. I mean, Trump puts together this immigration plan, which has its problems, which some Republicans are bristling at Democrats, just immediately say. But what about the dreamers? We, there's nothing about the dreamer. So we got to throw out this entire proposal. We can't even talk about it because it doesn't do that one little thing that we want. And it's so frustrating you feel like you're just banging your head against the wall. Don't you? Yeah. I mean. And again, you cannot we can no longer. I don't think and people there don't think God. I'm glad I don't live there that, that are sitting in these border towns that are just overrun. There's no place to put anyone. It's a humanitarian crisis that we have on our hands and it was denied for a long time. You can't deny it anymore. Nobody seems to have a workable solution, and as long as these guys will anything Trump proposes they're going to hate. Yes, they automatically have to say that in do it. So no matter how good bad, upper down, or otherwise. It is. There's absolutely no way. He gets anything done. Yes. And went on with the lack of action or the lack of discussion on any of us. I wish that somebody would have the guts and just say the lawmakers apparently are seeing stories like this, what happened to sixteen years. Yes. And they're okay with it. They're fine with it. Because they're proving they're fine with it by not doing anything. They're proving they're okay with it without even sitting down and having a discussion. With the other side, we want protection for the dreamers Trump offers protection for the dreamers, not good enough. Have all these conversations that keep going on and just keep going around and around in circles constantly and nothing gets done and crisis gets worse? I think the one thing if I was going to be critical about anything it would be why in the hell didn't get done in the first two years that he was president. Oh, yeah. I've said this happen, this should have been job one from day one. It, yes it should have been Cowley frustrating for me now to look back on this and go here we are in this quagmire right now. That's what we didn't have to be. And that's the point I was making when the government shutdown was was looming, because I thought it was a mistake that he waited until that, that moment to try to make this point, I understand you got tax reform done. That's great. Yeah. That terrible effort with healthcare reform. Why, why wasn't the border the number one thing? Day one. This is what we're looking at because that's the argument you were making all the entire time. We were campaigning. Yeah. And he's waited a long time for this and, you know, hopefully, they'll be a real effort to refocus this stuff because the images and the photos the videos the stories you're hearing out of the border right now. That's, that's not a sustainable situation. It's not it's horrible. And somebody has to do something about it. You were telling me about a football player who has issued a challenge while this is a Texas high school, sprinting star that has taken on New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn or Dan. It's g I n n I can't remember how you pronounce his name anyway. It's a ten thousand other racing challenge. Kid by the name of Matthew bowling eighteen years old. Goes to Jesuit college prep in Houston. Made headlines last month after breaking ten seconds on the hundred meter holy moly. Wow. That's plying man. However, these sprinters seemed to be confident to take on one of NFL's fastest players. So according to Ted Ginn, he told me Bleacher reports that the left coast show that he was willing to race anyone for ten thousand dollars or better. So he goes under sports talk show. And he says, hey, I'll tell you what this kid thinks he can beat me fun. I'll put ten ten grand up. Now bowling's pretty fast. He's, they call him white lightning, by the way. Oh, yeah. I like that. He said, okay, I'll accept that challenge. She said in a tweet. He said that, that's the only thing he said in the tweet bet. Now, Ted was also a high school track star he ran the two hundred meters in twenty one point one six but he's thirty four. Now, he told the outlet that he had missed qualifying for the Olympics by just one second. So he's almost an Olympian to meanwhile, this kid has committed to the university of Georgia for college. Again, this is going to be one of these other things. Man. Yeah. Perfect made for TV event. Guys. Putting up ten grand of his own money in a foot race cow. Dang that would be fun is that, that would be a lot of fun race that horse. Put up like ten grand on that one in one hundred. I you know what? I like that. Just go ahead and put it up. I want to throw one more thing at you. Your scott. Big and rich are you a fan of big and rich? I liked rife. What is it right? A cowboys. I like that song, actually.

"Mike gallagher. If you are concerned about congressman Justin Amash shes denunciation of the president. You might want to stick around for Byron York take on the mall. The report, great peace over at the Washington Examiner. Muller changed everything from now on the Trump Russia affair he writes will be divided into two parts before. And after the release of the Muller report. And the truth is, as Mitt Romney glumly and reluctantly admits on national television yesterday morning with Jake tapper CNN Muller, could not establish that there was a conspiracy, or coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. Now, those who hated Trump have to go from offense to defense. Now they have to play defense and they know it. Sanal Q, the never Trumpers, Q, the Justin Amash is Q, the mitt Romney's, and it's, it's very, it's very regrettable. Because if it's gonna hurt this country, here's somebody who lives in congressman Ammash is district. Eric, welcome to the Mike Gallagher show. How are you? Good. Good. What's your take on what your elected representatives doing? Grand rapids. Pro Republican base there he's going against. Just thirteen candidates lining up, primary, and lower Representative lower Greenville and Morton Stanley. Yeah. Good. Good. Well, I mean, he's got to be vulnerable because I know Grand Rapids, fairly, well, as you know, kinda know that whole Grand Rapids battle creek area Kalamazoo. I mean that, that region of Michigan is not exactly, you know, a like Berkley, it's not it's a lot of conservatives who live there. And I can't imagine that his constituents very happy with them. Eric, have you ever heard a Marsh say anything positive about the two and a half years of the Trump administration? No. We have not one thing. And I that. Doesn't surprise me because quite frankly, I don't think you'll be able to find the never Trumpers have very hard time, acknowledging the compliments of the Trump administration that shows to me that proves. Now, there are given is those of us who want him to succeed. We don't talk. We don't wallo in the negativity. We don't we don't wallow in the personality or the tweets or the feuds or whatever, and that I get that I understand that argument, frankly. I believe that I'm putting the country ahead of any of my personal feelings about any of it. I want middle class Americans to get a tax increase to get a tax cut and to get wage increases. I want people to have jobs, I want people, the African American community to work, and the Hispanic community work. I wanna see incredible growth in the GDP. I wanna see the stock market sore. Now, I guess Justin Amash does not. Because again, find me one thing this guy who hates Trump with a passion has ever said to reflect some of the achievements incidentally, got a ton of people who continue the text the keyword Trump to one eight hundred six five five six four five three.

"Impeach. How do you call that courage? Well, you call that courage because like March drawn to a flame never-trumpers are drawn to one another because they're a lonely lot. They are a very sad lonely group of people. And, you know, the old phrase about misery. Loving company. They wanna get patted on the back. They want they want to be like they wanna be propped up. They want the Washington Post to approve of them. They want Don lemon to like them. They won MSNBC to invite them on that network. They want to be relevant without realizing they would be thousand times, more relevant, and effective, and yes, even popular, if they would recognize the incredible conservative accomplishments of the last two and a half years. And the extrordinary achievements of the Trump administration, particularly when it comes to the economy jobs, the border ISIS foreign policy, challenging North Korea, having to deal with Iran. This is not a very good time for the Justin Amash Shas and the mitt Romney's of the world to strut around and be divisive. It's a very bad time. And these guys are making a serious mistake, I always knew as soon as Mitt Romney got elected. I thought you know, he went he went crawling to Trump Tower begging for a job. He didn't get a job. He was humiliated. There's always that famous picture of Romney sitting at dinner with Trump of by candlelight with Romney looking like the deer in the headlights. Oh my gosh. Don't take my picture. And Trump's sitting there like the Cheshire cat. Sort of toying with him. And, you know, like Jeb Bush, and the Bush family Romney will never forgive Trump for it. And I get it. I mean I get it. It would be hard. It would be hard to be a Ted Cruz type of strong person to put the, the welfare of the country ahead of your personal animus for somebody who has obliterated you who has humiliated. You Trump doesn't just beat you. He humiliates you. You know, and so I, I kind of understand it. I just wish folks like Justin Amash and Mitt Romney were stronger people, I wish they were more in tune with their own constituents. I wish they would reflect the will of the people I wish they would put the country ahead of their own personal emotions. But that's just me. Let me get your take on it. We got a lot to cut catch up on lots of saber rattling lots of news and noise about Iran over the weekend. Of course, last night was the Fox News. Townhall with mayor Pete. Not sure if you had a chance to see that I did at least as much as I could take of it. What kind of tackle that as well? We're in the relief factor dot com studios for Monday and I'm glad you're here. I'd love to get your reaction to Justin. I know it's supposed to be a mosh. I just like a mash better because I think he's a mash, he's a mash up. He's a mash, I dunno. Justin Amash calling for the president to be impeached as a result of the mother report, which frankly, vindicates the president. So that's a really peculiar conclusion, especially for a Republican. But then again, he's a Republican never-trumper..
