Well, let's get right into it then. We're GONNA. Go Congressman you are one of the leaders in the antitrust issues when it comes to facebook apple? Google and Amazon you are a member of the subcommittee on Antitrust Commercial and administrative law and grilled the CEOS of those major companies on whether they were stifling competitors and hurting consumers with their with their power. You're also a leader on on foreign human rights and wanted to make sure that those companies assured you that no forced labor would be used to create their products. Then no products that use that slave labor. To. Be produced would be sold by them Can You? Can you just get into that a little bit for us and tell us tell us where that's at now you what's your beef with trust? Can I'm trust guy I mean I think I try to build it Aurora go why you y you anti it. I'll favorite trust fund babies especially when they make political contributions but this kind of trust is a little bit different were you can't call them that when they're giving though you know you gotta call him. Oh? Friends that's what we grew to give Francis. But this is a situation where the trust laws were written. More than one hundred years ago to cover railroads and oil companies, and now we've got this whole new four a technology, and they're really not up to speed. They're not relevant to what we're doing today with with Google and Amazon, and Facebook, and twitter and apple, and so What we're trying to do is just examine what needs to be done so that a large companies don't crush. Small companies we continue to have innovation in this country when we look at world marketplace, what sets America apart from the rest of the world, not inexpensive labor or not sort of a poor working conditions. What sets US apart from the rest of the world is that we have innovation and if we crush small companies, we're GONNA lose that innovative advantage that we have in the world. So. I have a question full disclosure I used to work for whole foods and episode facto Amazon and and it was in the it world what you as Congress due. To limit some of these monopolies, what are you planning on doing? I watched the hearing was very interesting to me like what's the next step are? So the next step is to with I that was to expose the problems that are going on how Amazon crushes companies they go into a market, they have the platform so that people go to Amazon and they buy from Amazon and then Amazon creates its own products. To compete with the customers that are actually selling on Amazon. So what we need to do as we need to figure out of the tools that the regulators need to keep Amazon and check nothing wrong with being big big successful,.

So over the course of twenty years, this guy molested his patients oftentimes getting them to travel across state lines to come visit him at his doctor's office in New York which is why it's federal crimes because they had to cross state lines audrey. Strauss, who's the acting us? Attorney in New York southern New York. said that at a press conference that proud haddens they Predator in a white coat, which is sounds sounds about right? Yeah he got away with it for so long guys because most of his patients. For most of the patients, he was the first gynecologist for them. So he was doing some extra stuff, but they didn't know they thought it was probably normal that just gynecology exempt, suck. And he was getting away with a lot of really gross shit.

Sat, down at dinner at night, you just made some assumptions about the education system. Now, parents are getting to see how bad our public education system is in some areas and how much they need to get involved with their kids lives and I. Think it's a blessing that a lot of these things are happening. So that it's which waking up opening. If. That's true. I hope that it is and it is in to some degree in my own life. where I am seeing people wake up and go wait a minute what what what exactly is going on and it will be a blessing if we. If. We take the time to recognize what's going on and and then do something about it but I think a lot of people feel. You know helpless I mean we've I've I feel helpless quite honestly on a big tech. I know what big tech is doing I know how they are cozying up to you know the state I know that they want regulation because that's the way to put all the other competitors out of business I know that they are going to affect the election. I don't know what to do about it. And I, think there's on almost every front. That's the way Americans feel what do we do? What we had a great hearing. On the NITRO subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee and we got a great hearing with four of the TAC. Leaders a couple of weeks ago and I can tell you that there is five partisan sentiment. That the the large high tech platforms need to be well, they they have a ballistic control and that they show bias and they're a political leanings and that they are invading our. Privacy and that they need to be the we need to have a legal changes changes to the law so that the regulators and the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of Department, of Justice can regulate these giants so that they don't crush innovation in this country and so that there is true competition in the marketplace and I think you're gonNA. See a both parties move in that direction because what's happening right now is really opening the door for Red China to to GET INVOLVED? And Take more and more market share in this country. I'd like to have you back on just to talk about the regulation because we can I think regulation on these companies. That's what the big three automakers did with. FDR. That's why they are the big three automakers and we lost Auburn and all of these other great companies. Because Congress went to the big three and said, okay, you guys help us with regulation. How could we? How can we help you? And that regulation never works out for the Conservatives ever works out for conservatives or people who believe in personal responsibility and actual freedom. So.

"Two, thousand, Seventeen Book New Book just released a capital of Freedom Co. authored by Shonda wary with a forward by Senator Mike. Lee. Tell us a little bit about your book. Well, I give tours of the capital in the evening and point out different historical features and I've gone with various historians, and there is the architect of the Capitol, the House, this story and others and learn as much as I can about the capital and Each of these features could be an architectural feature or a statue or just even a story that occurred in capital has a great constitutional meaning and symbols to. To it, and so I talk about the Constitution and the book I talk about the way that the progressives are moving the country in a in a direction that is contrary to our founding principles and frankly the values that made us great, and so I think people will enjoy it because it has some interesting historical facts in it and to it it really talks to the cancel culture that's going on right now in in America. I, wanted to get your take as well. On the tick tock situation. There is no deal with Microsoft. President trump has threatened to ban TIKTOK. What's your take? Well to talk is a an APP that is has been created by the Chinese and is used by the Chinese Communist Party as an espionage tool, and we have to be aware in this country that China and Russia in particular are gathering intelligence on Americans and they are hacking into every database that they can, and they're. They are preparing and I don't suggest that this is on the horizon but they. They are preparing in the event of conflict. They will be able to engage in a cyber attack on America and hoped to shut down the American economy and and gain a military advantage in. So doing, we've gotta be aware that the TIKTOK and apps like that are being used for that purpose and I. Think President absolutely has the right and perhaps the obligation to stop China from gathering intelligence on. UNAMERICAN services. the house actually voted to ban tiktok on federal devices. During a speech, you called Tick Tock of very serious national security, a threat and again as you just reference could be used in a cyber attack against our republic. No, I gotTA. Let you go. No, know you've got a lot going on, but you're going to break out the popcorn and watch that each documentary, the Swan. Tonight. Are.

"Ten KFI. Cage. Thank. The swamp is the subject of an HBO documentary that will, Air, tonight, and one of the Congressmen participating in that I believe representative Ken Bag. Welcome back to the show. By the way you were the first one to sign on for that weren't. I was yeah. In fact, the producer from a New York City came down on the train and talk to me about it because he had read the book and wanted to do a film that was related to the book. Now I ran for that Denver Post article. Raise. Some eyebrows yesterday. So I was going to last question I but we'll do last question second because this article by Justin Wind Girder Well, the headline kind of says it all in Hbo Film Ken Buck Suggests that he will leave Congress soon is that the case? Gail. Let me something. What are you doing reading the Denver Post? I will you've got collect information from all sources right I even watch CNN. Subscription to Pravda them. Come. All right but. Let. Me Let me are you. Retiring no here here's the weird thing about this. You know I am frustrated in Congress because we continue to accumulate debt and then does my it's the reason I went to Congress. I think that we are we are going to go off the cliff with. The debt that we have and and so I have worked hard to try to You know reach out to other members Of the Aisle and talk about this issue, and we just keep piling on more and more debt. So this film crew follows me around for one hundred and fifty, two hundred hours here in Colorado mostly in DC, as well as Thomas Massie from Kentucky and representative Gates from Florida, and You know out of that hundred fifty to two hundred hours of video on me. They pull out little segments showing the frustration and I haven't seen the film yet but I I've seen the trailer and then saw some of the excerpts from the the article yesterday and I obviously expressed some frustration with being in Congress and how I am unable to get things done the major issue that I am therefore and so. Yes I I'm frustrated anybody who tells you that they love Congress and they really feel it's the most efficient way to legislate in this country is either lying or not be in Congress and so yeah, I'm I'm I'm frustrated but I have not announced any retirement plans and I don't plan on doing it. Well, that's good to hear or those who enjoy working in com-. Congress also fans of Sour Milk because right now, I'll tell you what I I don't know how you do it. I really don't because it must be just so So exasperating and you know it's funny The post article again yes I do read the post One of the film's director said as you see from our movie can is sad going on to say. That Ken is beaten down by the system. I've had the great pleasure of working with you for many years and I don't think that's an accurate characterization. I think you might be frustrated by the system. As, well, you should be because unfortunately as he just tweeted Republicans have to quit acting like Democrats. Now and and we do and and and I think we're losing our brand and it's part of the reason. I. Think There's so many people in Colorado are either choosing to be unaffiliated or in some cases they're leaving the Republican Party to become unaffiliated because The Republican brand for decades was a fiscal responsibility. It wasn't Democrat light and I'm I'm the As you know that you're of the State Party and again I took that job one because I think cory Gardner as a fabulous United States senator and and Donald Trump is doing a great job as president but but to I really want true from within the party, I don't want to leave the Party and complain about I WanNa from within the Party regain that brand of of fiscal responsibility. How do we do that? How do you do that? Well I think a lot of has to do with Education I. Know You don't even hear the presidential candidates and most of the Senate candidates talking about spending and we have record revenues already had before the pandemic record revenues in in the US government and and yet we were continuing to outspend those revenues to the tune of one trillion dollars of debt before the pandemic. We'll have our national debt will be approaching thirty trillion dollars by the end of this year. That's just unsustainable. Well, and as you say in the documentary, this president referring to President Trump of course has presented budgets that are huge. Typically, the Freedom Caucus would be leading the charge to criticize an executive branch proposal that cost that much money. But well, you say that somewhat gingerly because well, you also added that criticizing President Trump is quote unwise explained that My criticizing president trump. When I talk about the budget of he has submitted the reality is that if trump president trump cuts a dollar from Medicaid or Medicare, you're gonNA. Have commercials You know when when Paul Ryan suggested, we could balance the budget in thirty years Gail not tomorrow but. Thirty years. They ran commercials on on Paul. Ryan. With a grandmother being pushed in a wheelchair off of a cliff right and The same thing would happen with with president trump. So he has been he has done his best to cut programs or to reduce programs and budgets, but but not to give the other side, a big target to shoot at them. Really Congress has the power of the purse Congress is responsible for these deficits and and we need to do better in Congress. So I'm not criticizing the president the reality is is got submitted budgets with with very large expenditures. Seems as though when it comes to that second stimulus pretty much congress is not making a whole lot of Congress a whole lot of progress excuse me. Where do we stand right now with the stimulus and do you feel that it is a wise decision because it goes to well the spending nature of Congress and you've got Democrats essentially paying folks to stay home and Republicans paying them to go back to work how about they just go back to work. Well. Here's the problem we need the the in our economy. If if people don't have money to spend the the economy comes to a crashing halt both sides of the aisle work together to avoid that in this last round of fiscal stimulus I opposed it because they they both through so much pork into it that it was ridiculous but we. Have people who are unemployed and hurting we have businesses that we need to to support this pandemic, an unforeseen event and I think that we need to pass some type of spending bill. What we also need to do is talk about how we're going to repay that money. Are we going to raise taxes sometimes that has a counter. Productive Impact are we going to? make sure that we reduce entitlements or How do we repay this money? Perhaps we we have a strategy to increase revenue down the road, but we can't just start spending trillions of dollars and not talk about this is how we're going to repay this this amount of money interesting politico reporting that about two weeks ago. And were in two weeks into the talks aimed up producing this Kobe relief bill and the two sides have not resolved a single issue Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer not come to complete agreement on anything with a White House chief of Staff Mark, Meadows, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and then they reference an axiom that I'm sure you're familiar with when it comes to legislative politics, nothing's agreed to until everything is agreed to but in today's rather well overheated political scheme, well, anything ever be agreed to in total. Well here's the challenge, the the the Democrats, and particularly Nancy Pelosi want to embarrass the president and want the country to believe that this president cannot govern We are ninety, three, ninety, four days away from a presidential election a they don't want to give the president, a victory, a legislative victory and and what they're doing in the process they are hurting those who are unemployment they're hurting those who own small businesses I think I think there will be a backlash to the strategy of of using Americans as pawns, but we we will just see in and ninety three days.

"Misrepresentative, Ken Buck, sad. Perhaps a bit demoralized by his most recent congressional experiences. I'm just the Messenger I'm not saying it but. One of the directors of a documentary that's going to debut tomorrow night still have a firm time on that. But I'll I'll endeavor to find that and pass it along to you. Because I've got two stories and two competing times when this HBO documentary actually shows. One of the documentaries. Director says Yeah Ken is sad. Eight now, thirteen ten, kfi thirteen, ten, K.

Post by Justin Wind Girder in an upcoming HBO documentary US Representative. Ken Bacha Paints a rather bleak picture. Not, only of Congress, but also of his own political party and the conservative movement writ large in this era of President Donald Trump this before suggesting in this documentary documentary that he will retire soon, saying he opposes trump's budgets, but criticizing him is quote unwise as you don't want to turn president trump into a political enemy. But here's what. Here's what representative buck had to say in this documentary again, that debuts on Hbo Tomorrow Night Problem With the Republican. Party. Now is that we have such a fresh history of violating the constitution of violating fiscal responsibility of violating personal accountability that we don't have a high ground to stand on and say you guys are doing the wrong thing. That's a direct quote from representative. Buck. Of course, Windsor Republican chairman of the Colorado Republican Party this and that in this documentary this upcoming documentary. Called the swamp. Now, the the documentary follows three. Republican, Congressman. Of course representative. Buck. Matt Gaetz of Florida and Thomas Massie of Kentucky. Volume through nineteen, as they revealed their frustrations with the influence of lobbyists, the power of congressional leadership. Thorough. Excuse me and a lack of the legislative progress in the film which the Denver Post actually screened. Representative Buck. Often, field appears rather exasperated and well, somewhat cynical. Morgan Pammy. Is One of the documentaries directors she said an interview. As, you see from our movie, Ken is. Sad. Ken is beaten down by the system. I feel sad for Ken sometimes because when you go in there, you think you're going to make a difference. You're a member of Congress. You've got the PIN on. And then you just realize you're just another boat. In the pocket of Congressional. Leadership. Now during one scene late in the HBO film. A camera pans over a framed Denver Post article from Bucks First Congressional Election Victory Back in twenty fourteen. This hangs in his office near the US Capitol. And then. He offers a rather dark assessment of his tenure. Saying I have to tell you. I, think this place has drained me of a certain amount of life. After having been here for five years. I have no illusion that what I say anybody cares about. I have long thought about leaving and I don't know whether this is my last term. Or whether I'll run for one more term. I do know that a lot of folks at home will not understand the long term implications of what's happening here in DC. I think, sadly we do. Buck did ultimately decide to run for reelection in two thousand twenty and is favored to win over Democratic challenger mccorkell on November third in the safely Republican Fourth Congressional district of Eastern. Colorado. mccorkell said, it's this ingenuous for Bach to distance himself from. Of course, he said this. To distance himself from a corrupt political establishment, the congressman in mccorkell view as a prominent part of. Here's what he said. Bucks remarks. He hasn't done anything for Colorado. Isn't what that? What they say all the time isn't that the standard campaign narrative. Done anything for Colorado. Even admits it to himself and enter the campaign pitch. Colorado need real fighters in Congress, who will represent their interests. I'll be that fighter and respect given where respect is to rudy agrees my puppy barking because as veteran and purple heart recipient. Said mccorkell. I. Always have been a fighter. If Ken. Buck, isn't up to the job. He needs to step down. No. I. Think he's simply being honest in his assessment of the swamp, which is the title of a book to. Ken. Buck wrote. Believe. He's also released a new one. Tell you what I'm going to reach out to representative Ken Buck See if we can get him on tomorrow in advance of this HBO. Hbo Documentary. If Buck, retires before the two, thousand, twenty, two election. Now, they're likely will be a crowded Republican primary to succeed him for district currently includes Douglas County home to several republican state legislators and rather ambitious politicians. Is there any other kind? That might change when Congressional districts are redrawn following the twenty twenty census. Buck chorus was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus which was formed in two thousand fifteen to act as an ultra conservative voice and quickly proved willing to criticize Republican leadership for being insufficiently conservative especially on fiscal matters. Yeah. That's kind of all. If there's one thing that our Congress critters can agree on it, spending money, they don't have. But the caucus influence has dwindled in recent years. Its members rarely criticized president trump. Buck says. Documentary. The president has presented budgets that are huge. Huge. Typically, the Freedom Caucus would be leading the charge to criticize an executive branch proposal that cost that much money. Now, that's just not the case. And it's not the case because when the Freedom Caucus members look at their political base, they realized that so much of their base are trump lovers and nothing. This president does can possibly be wrong. So they can't criticize the president. Congressman expand on this train of thought and the film's closing minutes telling one interviewer. Taking on, president, trump is unwise. President. Trump has no problem doing touchdown dance every time a Republican critically is, and so he reinforces the idea that it is a bad idea.

"ken buck" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Western petroleum. So pleased to be joined by Congressman. Ken Buck Congressman Baca. Welcome back to the show. Good Morning I appreciate your taking the time. Now you have long been very vocally opposed to the Stimulus package this third stimulus package that president trump a- signed into law and indeed. It was a supermarket. Sweep of a bill especially when it came to the dams cramming it full of pork. Yeah it is It is a bill that is a related. I guess in part to the corona virus issues that we're having right now Enlarge part it is unrelated. There are so many things in that bill that were left out of previous Appropriations bills and really a huge problem. Because we're we're talking about now. Having at least three trillion dollars of debt on our books as a result of overspending by the federal government. One of the things that bothers me gail is. Why don't we ever anticipate that we're going to have a hurricane or a pandemic or Some sort of natural disaster that we need to save money for and use that money we are always overspending and then we are. We are overspending more. When when we find out that we have a disaster subtype now you you voted against the Stimlje stimulus bill. The Koran virus aid relief and economic security or cares act because as you have long said. The Cure is far worse than the problem itself. It is and I have to tell you when you say voted against it. There was a voice vote. I went down to the well. I spoke against it. I submitted a written Remarks that would have that are clear that I am opposed to it but there was never recorded vote held and that was another one of the problems that we have is that leadership didn't want anybody to be accountable and so they didn't have recorded boat. Yeah absolutely right but as you well point out I mean very accurately point out. This is not a two trillion dollar stimulus. It's more around six trillion right. Can you break that down? Sure what Four hundred Four hundred billion dollars of the two trillion dollar stimulus is an amount that is given to the Fed and the Fed can leverage that four hundred billion dollars up to ten times so that four hundred billion dollars becomes four trillion dollars and Added to the two trillion dollars. You're looking at A total of six trillion dollars that the US will be in debt at some point in time. I think the thing that raise so many of our eyebrows. I was just shaking my head in disbelief for the provision for things like public broadcasting museums and libraries and the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. I mean God love him but really. Yeah. It's it's amazing bill And it's not to tell you it's not just Democrats. Republicans had their Their hand in the pot also We have been stealing from the treasury's for so long that I think A lot of the swamp critters that have been there for a long time. Don't even have a sense that that's what they're doing and that the American public will object to it and again when you're talking about two trillion dollars. Those things are only And I say only in princesses only You know a hundred million one hundred fifty million worth but There's other things that are just baffling There's one hundred fifty billion dollars for hospitals We're talking about a disease that the life span of that disease will be less than six months will be less than eight months. So how on Earth Can Hospitals in America spend a hundred fifty billion dollars in that time period they can and so this is really meant to go law far beyond just the time period. Gal If you remember the story Abou John Hickenlooper using Nine eleven recovery funds to pay his attorneys. I'm an ethics charge. That's nineteen years after nine eleven. He's using those recovery funds. And that's what we're looking at in this. Two trillion dollar bill is every state. Every governor every Agency in the federal government will have a pot of money set aside. I took -CCOMPLISH. Whatever it is. They want the down the road. And they're using corona virus as the excuse all right president trump expanding That Social distancing program. That was expected to end. I believe today it was originally a fifteen day Slow slow the spread of Corona Virus Yesterday announcing doubt indeed would be extended to April thirtieth and again You have been very very clear about Shutting down businesses. And that's what we're looking ahead toward for thirty more days. What will this do to the country so I think what? President trump is doing a lot of sense. What president trump is giving our advisories? He is talking about the fact that in in Most situations what we should try to do is make sure that we have this six foot distance between us or or Greater Try to stay home. Try TO You know go to a different Events or places less than we have been going to try to flat mccur. That's one thing. The governor's around the country some of the governors around the country have Gone in and and and I'm not criticizing them because we still don't know the The extent of this The spread of this disease. I mean we. We don't know more than we do at this point in time. That's right and a lot of the information that we do know is actually being withheld from a policy makers for example. I just read something yesterday. That over ninety five percent of the deaths in New York are individuals who have pre existing conditions like asthma or emphysema or other diseases or conditions shirt and and some of them are terminally ill. Cancer patients who who died a few months prematurely. But if you read just the number of deaths you would think that this disease was gonNA wipe out the population in America and so we really need to start sharing that information so we can work more directly. Focus our attention on a certain population groups. Let me ask you a question because there's a lot of Caterwauling going around about the constitutionality of Basically those stay at home orders and our freedom of assembly and To me it seems that that's a conversation not for now but perhaps for another time the concern of course is that Well those liberties will never be restored. Yeah I think the liberties will be restored. I think the question is whether this is a slippery slope and future leaders feel like they can use these powers more easily. I think what we have now as A situation where the governor of is said. You can't go to church. You can't go to a political events go rallies for example we won't have our state assembly in person this year state Republican Assembly but But the reason is a very valid reason we have this disease and the spread of this disease and it is deadly. So the governor has the power Just to spend a certain Civil Liberties the What what has to happen is we have to make sure we'll get those civil liberties back. We do everything we can to to protect those but The constitution gives Governors of the president the authority to suspend certain civil liberties in the time of an emergency. Lights this yeah. This is not unprecedented. I to my knowledge. It's happened at least three times throughout history. But meanwhile back to the stimulus bill The third iteration How do we pay for this? How where does the money come from and as to your concerns is the concern that the action by the Fed well actually cause higher inflation? I had well. There's GonNa be something ahead I don't know what the crash looks like I do know that we just brought the date of that crash up Pretty significantly I have heard anything from twelve to fifteen years from experts when they look at the Aging Population Workforce that we have in America when you look at other demographic factors and economic factors as interest rates rise. The cost on our debt will rise and be more significant portion of our budget And at some point The crash happens at this. A worldwide crashes nobody is GONNA bail out the US right. Congress now looking at fourth round of stimulus It seems to me. There's probably a lot of consternation over that I think there is. I think By some my others. They'll use a A crisis as an excuse to to spend money. But his congressman. That's right and and one of the things we have to do. Is We have to look at the lessons. Learned WE HAVE TO CHANGE. Laws like like hip So that we can share information better About trends diseases we have to look at other things so I think there will be legislation. That will come from this but More spending is certainly not what we being at. This point congressman. Ken Box. Certainly appreciate your being so gracious and generous with your time this morning. What is your message for us? Your constituents all my messages we will come back and we will be strong and and It won't be that long. It may be another two or three weeks. Maybe another four or five weeks but our economy will get back on track and we will be outdoors enjoying the the beautiful days in Colorado. And I am. I am an optimist and I really look forward to the time when We can mingle wants today and shake each other's I give each other a hug because it's part of who we are in in Colorado it in America.

"ken buck" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Of special it's a special counsel, Robert Muller's report. Republicans say it's time to move on. Democrats say they want to see the details. Let's get into it with both sides of the aisle. I we talk with Republican congressman Ken buck. Good morning. Good morning. So should the public get to see the entire Muller report? Or why not the entire mold report minus anything that is? Classified or grand jury. They should see everything that is legally able to be seen. It was just turned over on on Friday from the team. So I think it is really kind of amazing that the attorney general's team was able to go through and summarize in four pages. So the public had some idea what was going on. But I do think that the public should see I voted for it on the floor of the house. I do think the public should see things. I don't think there are classified methods or sources in our relationship with Russia. In other words, if we should not be divulging that names of spies or the names of how we access rushing information. But everything else, I believe should should be public. Now can't house intelligence committee chair. Adam Schiff says there are a lot of questions still left to be answered. Do you agree or disagree? And do you have any questions? Well, the the one question if we go back to the beginning and first of all this. This was an incredibly thorough investigation that were forty. FBI special agents working on this investigation for over twenty months. There were nineteen prosecutors working on this investigation. They reviewed hundreds of thousands of pages of documents. They interviewed hundreds of witnesses. They indicted a number of people. So the investigation was thorough. The investigation was focused on was there collusion between the president as a candidate for president and his campaign and the Russians, and I think it is it is just absolutely clear to everybody. There was not collusion. The Russians even send people in to the campaign, offering this information in the campaign rejected them. So the the campaign did the right thing when they were offered illegally obtained information. Now were there other issues that were raised there were, but but there was nothing that the prosecutor could charge. We don't shift the burden of proof in this country. We don't say that someone is presumed innocent must be running for president. This President Trump is is presumed innocent. There was no evidence that warranted indictment and in the special counsel close investigation. What about obstruction? Do you think the summary to the report makes it clear that there was no obstruction of Justice? And would you like to see Bill bar answer questions under oath? I guess to be subpoenaed by the judiciary committee. I'm sure Bill will be subpoenaed by not just judiciary, but intelligence, and and other committees and will answer questions about that the standard. I think what what what the attorney general said in the summary. And it's what the special counsel said. Also was that since the president didn't intend to commit a crime. He wasn't obstructing Justice in any way. Republican Representative Ken buck. Thanks so much for being with us this morning. Thank you. Let's get the opinion of the other side of the aisle. We're joined by democrat congressman, Ed Pearl. Mutter? Good morning, bro. I assume you want this report to be fully released. Yes. Yeah. The the bar letter to the congress just summarizes it. I'd like to see the report we passed some legislation a resolution. Last week asking for the full report to be to be released congressman Pearl mutter Republicans point out along with the house and Senate intelligence committees that this is the third investigation that found no collusion with Russia. So why keep digging now? Well, I don't think they just keep digging. It's just you wanna see the report that's not asking that much molar worked on it for two years. And we wanna see, you know, the contents of the report what are you looking for in? That report. I don't know, particularly you know, it based on bars letter to us. You know, it's saying that Muller has determined that there wasn't collusion. Okay. And you know, that I think is a very important finding and move on from there. Apparently. There was no conclusion as to obstruction of Justice. I'd like to see exactly what that means. And you know, we'll take it from there congressman promoter the question of obstruction of Justice Muller made no decision on it. And the says there was no obstruction Republicans. Right. When they say, the Democrats are just moving the goalposts. What are your thoughts know, they're not right? The let's see what the facts are as respecting obstruction of Justice. You know, we know that his campaign manager manafort's been convicted twice six others pled guilty to different kinds of things. President himself is implicated in try to cover up the payment to the gals who with whom he had an affair. So there's there's definitely. Smoke in there. Whether it's fire, whether it's a, you know rises to a level of some kind of indictable offence. I don't know. But when I see the report that I can make that decision for myself, and for, you know, talk to the mic constituents in the seventh congressional district. All right. Very good. If the report is released we'd love to have you on again, democrat congressman, Ed parameter. Thank you. All right. Thank you. I'll talk to you later. KOA? Newsradio time is nine eighteen coming up. We're gonna talk about the is rocked by those mass shootings. That's on KOA NewsRadio..
