AJ Reviews the Clinton 'Suicide' Death List
"I've detailed the Clinton death slash suicide list of people who've been around. Ville and Hillary Clinton. And why don't we just review this? It's been a while, but there was James mcdougall who was Clinton's convicted whitewater partner who died of an apparent heart attack. While in solitary confinement and he was just only a key witness in Ken Starr's investigation, I mean, that could happen. I mean, that could happen. Then there was Mary Mahoney. Who was a former White House? A White House intern. Who's murdered in July of 1970 7 at a Starbucks coffee shop in Georgetown. And the murder happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment at The White House. Many of you know about Vince foster, the former White House counselor and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock's rose law firm, he died of a gunshot wound to the head, the back of his head, which is a weird way to kill yourself, but either way they call it a suicide. There was Ron Brown, secretary of commerce, and the former DNC chairman, they say he died by intact and a plane crash, and a pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of his skull, resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and he spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. Don't do that.

Who Would Make a Great Supreme Court Advocate?
"Just because you've watched so many Supreme Court arguments, you know, so many of the justices, you know, so many of the legal people. If you had to recommend a Supreme Court advocate today, someone called you up and their company is on the line, they have to argue before the Supreme Court, who would it be? I guess it would probably be Paul Clement. You and I said the same thing. I got asked that question a couple of years ago. And I've never met Paul Clement or spoken to him, but I hit Paul Clement. Tell people why. Well, because he's just if he weren't such a nice and intelligent and good guy, I would say that he was an idiot savant of an advocate. I mean by that, I don't mean that he's an idiot. I mean that even when he was a baby advocate, he came to the Justice Department with John ashcroft for whom he had worked on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think. And he was in his young 30s and Ted Olson was the solicitor general and had just won Bush versus gore for president Bush by then president Bush and ashcroft, I think, actually wanted Paul to be solicitor general and the compromise was that he would be deputy, which he was for four years, and then he became solicitor general on his own. But as Ted also would say, Paul is just an amazing advocate. And he is not a, you know, when he worked for the government, he represented the government. When he worked for the Catholic Church, he represents the Catholic Church. Do I think that is closer to an approximation of his views? Yes, I do. But he was a just a bang up advocate for the government. And so was Ted Olson. They both represented they both defended the McCain feingold law. And one in the Supreme Court, and it fell apart years later, and they represent different interests now that they're in private practice, but that didn't stop them from being the best advocates possible for their client at the time and their client at the time was the United States government. You just named two of the four of the greatest Supreme Court advocates of my generation, the other two being the now chief justice John Roberts, and the fourth being an it'll come to me. I just forgot his name. And there are four. And they were always, I get calls, and when the chief justice was in private practice at Hogan, I would say go get him. And now when I get calls, I say go get Paul Clement because Ken Starr judge Starr is no longer practicing. They work great Supreme Court advocates because they just are at ease and I bring that up because of your Walter dellinger story on page one 30 and God bless the late Walter dellinger, who is a great man in the law, with whom I disagreed often. But he mixed up the names of justices, O'Connor and Ginsburg in his first argument. That's over practicing. Nina, that's don't you think that's what it was. He was overprepared he had thought about it so much. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up, and he mixed them up, and they were not happy. I don't even know if it was that. First his first argument, it just was maybe the first time he faced the two of them on the court. You're right. You're right. And he said, I mean, I've done this. I've said North Carolina when my script says South Carolina, I don't know what happens. In a less than ladylike expression, it's a brain fart. Yeah. Happens to me like on a daily basis. Nina totenberg. I mean, on a daily basis, three hours of radio you're going to do it, your buddy Steve never makes a mistake inscape. And I really hate that. But I make mistakes every day. Let me go on now to what the essence of dinners with Ruth is. And I remind you of the Frank luntz role, we've got to say the title of dinners with rouge 7 times for people to remember dinners with Ruth and order dinners with Ruth. And I want to tell my Friends on the center right in the right, this book will charm you and inform you and you'll be better for having read it. I said that most recently about Evan Thomas's one, Evan is a friend, one is about justice O'Connor and as dinners with Ruth does for justice Ginsburg one did for justice O'Connor and together they do what is only very infrequently done they give you a glimpse of the real world of the Supreme Court. And you know what? So much better than I do. I know some of the justices, but not as friends. I mean, colleague, John Roberts, an old colleague, chief just a justice Thomas and Stephen Breyer sat for interviews. And justice Gorsuch had been spent time with, but I don't know them like you know them. And you are a great storyteller. And you humanize them, but especially judge justice Ginsburg. Did you intend that when you began?

"Bad this is that when somebody, perhaps a law clerk, we don't know yet, leaks a first draft of what is a majority opinion and the impact that has on the ability of judges to work together and the court. Because it's so unprecedented, it's almost impossible to predict the long-term consequences, but the short term is this. There will be now a lack of trust on the part of the court toward those who are working in the court and it's so consequential because the judges depend on the confidentiality of one another to be able to speak freely. Just as the president of the United States enjoys executive privilege, just as members of Congress enjoy the speech or debate privilege. There are privileges that are designed to do what to protect the orderly and lawful functioning of government. This totally disrupts this, the train has left the tracks and we need to do everything that we can beginning with identifying this individual and bringing this person to justice, but we also need to know and the chief justice has been reassuring in this respect that this is not going to interfere with the work of the court. It will be steady as she goes, but it's incredibly disruptive and very destructive. You know, judge Ken Starr when you go back and you look at the confirmation process starting with Robert bork. The effort to intimidate would be justices. To destroy their character, these are preeminent legal scholars with tremendous careers behind them, so if and when they get on the court, by then they hope they've been already coerced in so forth. This is something that's been building for several decades, isn't it? Yes, the border confirmation hearing said a new and incredibly low standard of character assassination that's exactly what happened there. And it's happened time and time again. We had a brief reprieve with the justices Ginsburg and Scalia enjoying essentially a quiet confirmation process, but the process erupted again with justice clarence Thomas. We saw it at its worst again with justice Brett Kavanaugh. So we need a restoration of civility and kindness and decency in the process, but I don't hold out any hope whatsoever in light of what we've now seen erupt in the wake of the improper disclosure of the draft opinion. And the Democrats have the media supporting them. The media participates in these in these horrendous smear campaigns and I just don't see how we get out of this. I don't think there's an exit ramp right now. It takes leadership. It takes the leadership, obviously, of both parties, but I agree with you. This has been very one sided in terms of the nature and extent of the attacks, the very personal attacks and vilification. So it is very much

"Needs no introduction but I'll give him one anyway as judge Ken Starr, he was a judge from the D.C. Court of Appeals. He was solicitor general of the United States independent counsel, one of the great legal minds in the country, judge star, I have a question here. Have you ever seen anything like this in your life with a leak first draft with a political party encouraging protests at the homes of justices with at least early on, the Department of Justice taking literally no steps to protect these justices? What do you make of this? No, it's been one outrageous thing after another. The leak itself was as chief justice Roberts said in his written statement, an egregious breach, we all know that. And I have frankly been very disappointed that there hasn't been anonymity in the condemnation of the leak, as opposed to simply ignoring it. And then yes, the protests outside the different homes, but especially justice Alito's home is really another outrage and one that just cries out for the government to use for the federal government to use its enforcement power. You identified the law. It's a criminal law. It's been on the books for a long time, and it should be enforced. It should be faithfully enforced. What do you think would happen if the shoe was on the other foot? If there was a decision that conservatives, the maga, so forth didn't like. And all of a sudden, people started showing up at the homes of the more liberal, justices, harassing them, trying to coerce a decision and Kevin McCarthy comes out and says, I support these efforts because I want them to change their ultimate decision. What do you think the reaction of the media would be? Condemnation and rightly so, that is simply unacceptable. It is a form of mob rule when people take to the streets targeting a judge's home or a justice's home. And essentially trying to intimidate them. That's the only natural consequence of what it is or the intent of these individuals. So I think there would just be a sense of outrage, how dare these people do this, they're interfering with the orderly conduct of government. As I said, you were a federal appellate judge. You had conferences with your fellow judges, too, over writing opinions who would write the opinion, sending drafts back and forth and so forth. Can you explain to the American people

"And I think the first is almost a little understandable is that argument that sort of if Republicans wanted role overruled that would have happened. And I think that's the kind of argument that can sound sensible, but until you dig into it, just realize how incredibly lucky we were that row was still good law in 2012. You know, if Reagan nominates bork and ski and reverse order, you know, roe is overruled no later than 1992. You know, David souter wasn't put on the court to preserve roe, but because of extremely weird internal administration dynamics, like Ken Starr could have just as easily been nominated to that seat. And so there's just all kinds of justice Kennedy voted to overrule role at the conference in case he had changed his mind. So, you know, it's just that there's many times in which row could have been overruled. And I think that, you know, by 2012, that gets team inevitable. And I would even say that there's some, you know, in the 70s and 80s, there was even some truth to the argument that Republican elites didn't really want row overruled. That the court taking it over was actually good for the party. And I think there was just a failure to recognize how much the Republican Party had changed and how contingent the survival of role was. And as soon as, as you say, Ruth Bader Ginsburg doesn't retire strategically, Anthony Kennedy does retire strategically, you know, the Electoral College, the Republicans get lucky and the Electoral College and both 2004 and 2016 and it's game over. So I think that's the one form of complacency. And the other I think is just ultimately a complacency that trivializes reproductive rights that wants to claim that, well, rose popular, so probably not that many states will ban abortion and it's not really going to be that bad. Which is, as we've discussed, it's pretty clearly nonsensical. There's something else and that the to the extent that there's anything defensible in the Alito opinion. Again, it's this logic about leaving it to the legislative process and the democratic process. But of course, the democratic process is exactly what Republicans don't want. In many legislature, states, which they could be punished for unpopular abortion policies, they're one gubernatorial election away from essentially permanent bans on abortion because they don't offer democratic elections for the legislature.

Witnesses Praise Merrick Garland, Joe Biden's Pick for Attorney General
"Witnesses have been called on the second and final day of confirmation hearings in the Senate for attorney general pick Merrick Garland. One of the witnesses attesting to Garland's character and judgment was interim president and chief executive officer Wayne Henderson. With the leadership conference on civil and human rights, he called Garland uninspired choice. Attorney general must be seen by every member of the public from every community as a fair arbiter of our legal system, whose sole duty is to serve the national interest. Alan was also praised by Republican witness former independent counsel Ken Starr, who spent years investigating Democratic President Bill Clinton. The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote on Garland Monday. The full Senate could act

"When Republicans in the House impeached Clinton. And I think it was 98. You have to understand why they did that. Bill Clinton was a lame duck president, just as Donald Trump is now out of office. Bill Clinton couldn't run again. And you could argue. Maybe they want to wound him because Al Gore was going to be running for president in 2000, but I don't think that was it. I think the smug Arrogance and the slippery nature. Of the Clinton of him and her Remember she was tied up in Whitewater. I think that Ken Starr is a man who is kind of this Southern Baptist Deacon who who doesn't want to see evil done, and he believed that it was important to prosecute. Bill Clinton and you can agree or disagree. I don't care. I'm just making the comparison between then and now. Republicans started with Whitewater. And ended up with Monica Lewinsky. Republicans started with a financial scandal of a real estate development in Little Rock, Arkansas. It went through the McDougals who remember they wouldn't testify against him. Susan and James James was the head of Madison Guaranty. I think it was And Susan was movie producer. And they went to prison because they refused to turn on him. Susan had a lot of friends. And that made Clinton this sort of sympathetic figure because here's Susan sitting in prison rotting in prison. And Ken Starr looks like a bad guy. Because she won't turn on Bill Clinton and give them the goods on Bill Clinton. Public opinion began to change. Well. The investigation. Went to Paula Jones. And Eventually there's a payout to Paula Jones, Terry McAuliffe. Went on to be governor of Virginia Democrat went on to be Head of the DNC. He's he's kind of the bag man for the Clintons. He gave him the almost million dollars to pay off Paula Jones. And then to prove the pattern with Paula Jones. Here comes Monica Lewinsky. And that was going to be the case. Was hard to get Americans to focus. On Whitewater because it was a kind of complex real estate deal and most People don't really understand what's legal or not legal about a real estate deal. Do you know what people do Understand? Sex. Sex is very easy to understand. He had an affair. He's a bad man. So the basis for impeaching him? And many people's eyes. Was not lying under oath. In many people's eyes. It was he had an affair. So if you follow what Ken Starr was up to What started as a financial scheme. It may have been illegal back in Arkansas. That involved him and his wife. Turns into Him cheating. And again, it's whether he lied under oath. But now it becomes a case of a moral case and less of a legal case. In the court of Public opinion. It made Hillary Clinton very sympathetic. Hillary Clinton is an unlikable human being. Her cackle. Calculating ways her cold ways. She's not very likable Bill Clinton is say what you will. He's very likable. But when you drove a wedge between that You made this mother of this young child. Very sympathetic figure. Here, she Woz. Hung out to dry. Grieving publicly supposedly Wounded and hurt. Bill Clinton. Lied to the American people. He lied to everyone around him. But what we found through all of that and trust me on this. I've spent a lot of time reading public opinion polls through this period of time. What we found out through a lot of Through what we've learned through time. Is that people thought That that was scandalous. And that he was a scoundrel for doing it. But they didn't think he should be impeached. Don't need to hear that. You thought he should have been impeached. Middle America thought that was much ado about nothing. Chris Rock had a comedy skit. Where he basically says. The man got a Sexual act. Performed on him. And Is that so bad now again? I'm not saying that's a good approach. That's how our republic should function. I'm telling you what the American people thought. Then you enter Linda Tripp. She's physically ugly. She's kind of a troll looking person. You hear the tapes, Monica Lewinsky feels betrayed by her. Linda Tripp is this is this kind of comes off of this kind of scheming, ugly woman. Who's in possession of the blue dress. And so Republicans believed we got slick Willie. We've never beat him. We beat him this time. And they played their case. They beat him in the house. They voted to impeach There's a Republican majority. Along, Uh, party lines. They voted to impeach and then in the Senate, where the Democrats were were in charge and had a majority. They voted again along party lines and didn't vote to convict. And by and large, it went away. Except it didn't Because as a result The polls showed. That Republican that voters didn't like Republicans after that. Now, if you are tempted to say, Michael, that can't be true. Because Bush beat Gore in 2000. Couple of things to remember. Gore put Clinton on the sidelines and wouldn't let him campaign with him. Because Gore thought that Clinton was an albatross for him wasn't true. Gore lost states that Clinton had one in the South. Clinton could have helped him when one of those states remember the hanging chance If he'd won just one of those states. He could have turned it..

"Back to Charlie Kirk Show with Judge Ken Starr. We have to not take these kinds of onslaughts lying down if we're not taken to court. We being friends of faith of all faiths aren't including those of no faith. We're talking about the rights of conscience here for all Americans, which is so fundamental to our constitutional system. So, judge if you could clarify a question we get quite often here. Where people say it is illegal to discriminate based on religion, and it is illegal to discriminate based on race. What about political viewpoints? Lot of people believe that they are being discriminated against because they're trump supporter because they are conservatives? Are there any protections for them? Or is it that You are allowed to discriminate based on political viewpoint. Yeah, in this land of freedom. The fundamental point is, yes. Oh, you're a trump supporter are your abiding supporter or your? Whatever. I'm not going to do What? Engage an artist right now. This is engaging an artist straight now. If you're talking about someone getting kicked out, Remember of the red hand restaurant, her family and so forth. Sarah Sarah Huckabee. Sanders.

S O people said Look, I'm just not going to serve you because you know you. You support black lives matter. I'm not supporting right if that were the ground, these pseudo that's getting into is that racial discrimination and so forth. So it depends on what the category is. But right now, political expression is not clearly a protected category and under most loss, and I see it both ways. I don't think it necessarily should. Because what if all of a sudden turning point USA had to, you know, sit, allow every socialist into our organization. S o. It could In some ways. If it was just viewpoint or politics, it could cause some problems down the road. If it would make one protected class and it's really hard, I think for younger fellow students to understand this Because we don't like exclusion. We don't like you're not welcome signs, and I understand that we want to be welcoming and took foot, but groups haven't the right Just say here's who we are, As always, you're not discriminating, uncertain, enumerated turned especially racial discrimination and so forth.

And in a very important opinion involving the Boston ST Patty's Day Parade, the friendly sons of ST Patrick and so forth, the people who organized a parade said to an LGBT Q. Irish American group. I'm sorry you are welcome to march in the parade, but you can't march Under the banner of your group. That's not what this parade is all about. You have the right to identify what your organization is. And so turning about. Yusa has every right to say it might say if your marks is coming in because we want to convince you, but you got me to allow the Marxist just form a student chapter right at it, even at a state universe that you do not have to allow someone whose views are inimical to the views of freedom articulated so eight My turning point you say to then say, OK, I'm now your chapter president or I'm gonna run for your chapter president the same the same with the Democrat Socialist. They don't have to allow a capital historic conservative into their groups. And so it nicely. That's the freedom of association. Now it's energy. The sounds exclusionary. Guess what this arose.

"Kirk Show with Judge Ken Starr's protects all persons, including but not limited to the president. Certainly the resident excise From the Constitution and the bill of rights. It is only so to come back to what is the core issue. Incitement is when you essentially are saying, we want you to go take violent action now and so now it's important to analyze the text as well as the context. The text points in favor. The president, especially the exculpatory text about do so peacefully make your voice is known and so forth on. There is thus far no indication I've seen Charlie that the president was in any way advised. By the way, there's some really bad actress in this ground. We have an intelligence briefing. Did he have an intelligence briefing that morning? That said, By the way, Mr President and TIFA is here. Some very violent right wing organizations air here who knows who's here? Mr President. If he had that briefing, That would be a fact that the decision makers should take into account in terms of incitement or and inciting to insurrection. I think it's far fetched now. The president is, of course, subject right here and now to indictment in the criminal justice system. I hope that won't happen. But that's part of our equal justice under law. He should not be subject to impeachment and trial. That's a travesty, but he obviously like any other citizen, is subject to the criminal justice process. Well or so we would hope without the kind of circus that happened in the house with no witnesses. No due process, no representation just complete and total. You know, multi, just a couple our process and then you're impeached. Which is extraordinary. We never seen anything quite like that, right? The house is supposed to be deliberative. The speaker of the house cannot suis Ponte A just unilaterally say we're impeaching the president. She tried to do that impeachment one, right? She she said. We're impeaching the president. Hey, will be impeached, so go draw up articles. I said at the time abuse of her power, there should have been a vote. 100. What precedes the vote. Look at history. History is a great guy, especially when we look at presidential impeachments. Each presidential impeachment was preceded by numerous and careful hearings, a sifting of the fax a new assessment of the credibility of witnesses. Not done here exactly as you say. And the Democrats are saying to play Devil's advocate that we don't need the evidence. The evidence came here. But the more information we actually find It's not that simple. There were groups that were, they're coming with the intent to try and take federal buildings with militia gear and with out any of the remarks of the president, and so it's not that simple and judge can you talk about for some of our younger listeners? Why our system is this design the way it is why it is Supposed to be deliberative. Why we're not supposed to be able to Convict somebody in 24 hours or less. You have to have time to be able to build the defense to submit evidence. It feels as if this is almost like the Russian system where they convicted the Alexey novel, Lonnie Guy in four days or less. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I said, look at the similarities between the two of this kind of rush to judgment. Can you just from a constitutional perspective? Talk about why our system is actually built that way. It goes back to Magna Carta almost 1000 years ago that government whether it's the king, whether it's Congress, whether it's the president, whether it's the governor. Can't abuse power and what we treasure and a constitution. Democracy throughout the English speaking world is power has to be limited. That includes the power of the House of Representatives. One Justice of the Supreme Court from yesteryear put it very well. The history of liberty is largely the history of procedure. Process counts. You inability. Let's say you're being accused of something in the university and high school, right? Don't you want to be heard? We don't need to hear from you. And there is some issues right under time home, huh?

But I can't group court is one where you don't have fair process so always demand process. Right. Think about you're pulled over driving a fence and the police officers. I find you guilty. So excuse me. I was not violating the law and who are using I'm the judge. No, You're not. You're heavy. A hallucination. There's a process here, and I got to go to court and so forth.

"Which is why President Nixon was named an unindicted, uh, co conspirator because at that point, they weren't sure. Their head that they didn't have a legal opinion. There was also a new opinion, saying the president couldn't pardon himself and I did a piece on this this week. And what interested me was the consensus among Uh, scholars and historians was that if Trump were to pardon himself, it would Mean that the Biden administration almost certainly would have to challenge that in court. They would have to prosecute him for something. They would it himself. They would have to prosecute him for something. And in order to get the self pardon in front of the courts, because if you leave that there as a a suppress ident, then what's to stop of president the most, you know, the James Bond desk villain kind of president. From selling the nuclear codes and then pardoning himself. I'm glad that you mentioned pardons. I've got a question for Kim waylay on that point, and then Mara may want to jump in, and I also want to know by the way the rule is past were up to 219 votes in favor of the rule. Handful of members haven't voted yet. But my question is about reforms to the pardon power. Kim waylay There is the question of a president pardoning himself. There is the question the president pardoning his friends and political allies, which this president has done a great number of times. It has not escaped people's thoughts that the president hypothetically could before leaving office. Pardon everyone to attack the capital on January 6th. Is there a need for some kind of reform of the pardon? Power? And if so, what would it be? Well, you know, there's very little on the pardon power, and there's a debate among scholars as to the scope of it. Some believe it's completely unlimited. But you know, the Supreme Court has held. For example, if if you're if you're criminally prosecuted and convicted, and you have to turn over money that apart and can't give you your money back without an act of Congress because of the appropriations caused Joining the best argued the better argument is that you can't use the pardon power in a way that conflict with another part of the constitution. But the court is also indicated that Congress can't limit it. I do think there could be, you know, in terms of statutory reform. Do you think there could be more transparency around the pardon Power because it's meant to really be Ah, political mechanism. Um, but as far as you know, there's a sitting president. Being indicted. There's a big difference between a criminal prosecution and an impeachment. The impeachment, I think, really with Bill Clinton probably was the time where it was. You know, became politicized, and it's hard to imagine a super majority of any Senate from the same political party. Is the president ever actually convicting, so it's become a non You know, not really a functional tool. But you know, as you know, Steve, I was associate independent counsel in the Ken Starr Whitewater investigation on Do you know that was a long investigation? A lot of money really good lawyers. You know, very, very careful, careful going over every conceivable fact, every piece of evidence multiple times and, you know, you know, neither Bill nor Hillary Clinton were indicted. Why? Because this wasn't the evidence there and I think we've seen In this last few months the courts actually hold when it comes to the Constitution. They're bound by fax, and they're bound by law. That's why out of 60 suits on Lee one tiny victory War President The For the Trump campaign out of 90 90 judges, uh, you know they they're limited that way. And so that's why I don't. I'm not so sure. Indictment allowing, you know serious scrutiny of crime, which has a very high threshold would necessarily lead to political gamesmanship. Very briefly, Mara Liasson, Why don't you jump in here and then we're going to get some color from the house of Representatives. Go ahead. Morrow. Yeah, Kim. I had a question about Center and impeachment being almost like the equivalent of center if it can't go on to the Senate for conviction and removal It's just a measure of the House's disapproval on record for the history books.

Federal prisoner Brandon Bernard executed despite pleas from celebrities, jurors
"Administration carried out its ninth federal execution of the year. Last night. Last minute clemency pleas for Brandon Bernard were rejected celebrities and a former U. S prosecutor had taken up his cause. George Hale from member station. W F I U has more fans flooded Donald Trump's Twitter account for a week after Kim Kardashian West asked for help trying to save Bernard's life. But late Thursday it was the mother of a murdered youth minister of plotting the president's decision to let the execution go forward. The family have Todd Bagley would like to thank President Donald J. Trump. Attorney General William H. Bar and the Department of Justice. Todd and his wife, Stacy, were visiting Texas in 1999 when a group of young men kidnapped them, hoping to empty their bank accounts. Hours later, the couple was locked in the trunk of their car when the gang's ringleader fatally shot them. Both. Bernard was a low ranking member of the gang and followed orders to set the car on fire. Federal officials executed shooter, Christopher V. Alva in September. They also moved to set an execution date for Bernard. Supporters of Bernard insist he had no idea the all the planned to shoot anyone. He was also only 18 at the time. That wasn't part of the original kidnapping. But prosecutors managed to convince a mostly white jury to send us both young black men to death. The majority of surviving jurors later changed their minds about Bernard. So did Angela Moore, a former U. S prosecutor who helped defeat Bernard's appeal. Mr Bernard was not planning on any kidnapping or killing to happen. Mr Real of Awas More wrote in an op ed in the Indianapolis star detailing her objections to Bernard's execution. That's when Kim Kardashian West got involved tweeting the essay to her nearly 70 million followers. Trump listens to West before he once hosted her in the White House alongside prisoners he had granted clemency. The Stars Support offered rare hope to an inmate scheduled to die under a Supreme Court stacked with death penalty supporters. Hours before the execution, Bernard's defense, added attorneys and Trump backers Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz to the team. They sought a 14 day stay to review the case. But any hope of Trump intervening, faded late Thursday. As prison officials gathered witnesses and the execution went forward Kardashian West took to Twitter soon after our system is so eft up, she said. The next federal execution is set for tonight.

Impeachment trial of President Trump continues
"Baloney this is an effort to overturn the results of one election and to try to interfere in the coming election that begins today in Iowa and we believe that the only proper resolved before applying the golden rule of impeachment if for plying the rules of impeachment that were so eloquently stated by members of the Democratic Party the last time we were here the only appropriate result here is to acquit the president and to leave it to the voters to choose their president White House counsel Patsy Bologna at closing arguments of the impeachment trial of president trump John McConnell is a professor at Georgetown law school what about this argument from the president's attorneys house managers argued quite the opposite so we Lofgren said today if the impeachment in election years was not to be our founders what is said no yes there is no exception written into the constitution for a certain kind of high crimes and misdemeanors that bear upon elections being off limits if anything I think the house managers have the stronger argument here namely that the very conduct at issue in this case bears upon the crowd credibility of our elections so it's not an argument to elect a president go ahead and campaign when he's shown himself to be untrustworthy and willing to to bend the rules and break them what about the appeals to the founders professor Mikhail that we kept hearing really from from both sides as they tried to to couch their their arguments within the the framework of the constitution yeah it's very telling that both sides really went for originalist arguments that it is in some sense it's a reflection of just how strong the gravitational pull of originalism has become in our political and legal culture neither side really took issue with the idea that the correct touchstone or the correct a measure of the impeachable info fences and high crimes and misdemeanors and so forth want to be what the founders intended or what they wrote into the document and apps revealing their other legal and constitutional issues where the the arguments would really go in another direction say for example what counts is cruel and unusual punishment where most persons agree that really the standards that ought to be applied in that kind of a context are contemporary standards not necessarily eighteenth century standards yeah and we kept hearing that from from the the democratic house managers that what the president was accused of is exactly what the the founders meant and certainly the opposite from from the other side which is it what what did the founders intended well does on this point it doesn't matter I think everyone thinks that the history at least matters whether or not it's dispositive I think of another question but really on this question again I have to side on the merits with what the house managers were arguing in the following sense the president's lawyers questioned whether abuse of power counts as a high crime and misdemeanor and they argue that it doesn't the problem with that is that the single most important impeachment that matter to the founders with the impeachment of a man named Warren Hastings in Great Britain it was happening in the British parliament at the very time that the constitution was drafted the chief prosecutor of Hastings was Edmund Burke of political theory fame who used to be incidentally a hero to American conservatives Edmund Burke is one of the people that they tend to look to for their founding ideals and ideas and Berks the peach impeachment Hastings makes quite clear that abuse of power was in fact a high crime and misdemeanor that was the language that was used in Great Britain in seventeen eighty six eighty seven eighty eight just at the time that the constitution was being drafted and ratified and we have evidence in the records of the constitutional convention that Hastings impeachment was discussed by the framers so it's really very hard for the president's lawyers to deny that the views of power is an impeachable offense or could count as a high crime and misdemeanor in light of this kind of historical evidence there was also this other argument we heard it from from can start that in a any invoke deflate gate he said we don't have depleted footballs that's one of the rules and and you guys didn't follow the rules pointing it at Democrats saying that this whole impeachment just wasn't proper ugh the end and you know it was a little rich to hear him to cry the age of the era of impeachment that in large part Ken Starr may of started but it is their real quick professor McCullough the did anything to his point no I don't think so I mean that the as you say that really was an exquisite case of the pot calling the kettle black but as as far as the substance of the matter the constitution it is very simple in the powers of delegates to the house to impeach and to the Senate to try impeachments there are no restrictions on how the house Kerry's that out that are written into the constitution and there are really only a couple of data points so the and

McConnell, Romney vie for influence over Trump's trial
"Just yesterday. Yesterday we talked about how Pam Bondi one of Donald Trump's defense lawyers is corrupt herself and she goes out there on the Senate floor and goes after after the Biden's for corruption when she took twenty five thousand dollars from the trump foundation and is now representing trump but more importantly dropped the investigation instigation into trump university Luckily they didn't drop that investigation in New York and trump ended up having to pay twenty two million dollar settlement because he defrauded students But this is this is what we're dealing with right. So whenever the media pretends like both sides are equal. It's infuriating because you have one side. That is not family lying to the American people but helping cover up Donald Trump's criminal activity in the White House so let's move on to some real corruption when it comes to this impeachment process new reporting indicates that Donald Trump's lawyers have given thousands of of dollars to Mitch McConnell who is obviously overseeing the Senate impeachment trial now. It seems as though there might be a conflict of interest there but we live in a country where I heard this type of bribery is legal. And so you end up with senators who don't serve the best interests of the country. They will sell the country out in order to maintain their your cozy little relationship with their donors. So let me give you the details of what's going on former independent counsel Ken Starr and Robert Ray who both investigated former president. The Bill Clinton ahead of his impeachment contributed thousands of dollars to Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell last year before they joined the president's team so Star Star actually gave him twenty eight hundred dollars in July of last year and Ray gave him a fifty six hundred dollars in September of last year and and that's according to the Center for Responsive Politics which is trying to shed some light on what's going on some of the corrupt influences in the Senate impeachment trial in fact Senator Mitch McConnell was notoriously. Said this and he was very open and honest about it during a cable news appearance. Let's take a look everything I do during this yes I'm coordinating. With White House counsel there will be no difference between the president's position our position as to how to handle this. But we'll be working through through this process. Hopefully a fairly short period of time in total coordination with the White House counsel's office and the people who are representing the president in the Oil Senegal Exactly how we go forward. I'm going to coordinate with the president's lawyers so they won't be any difference between us on how to do this again. I'M GONNA take my cues from the from the presence lawyers. I'M GONNA take my cues from the president's lawyers because the president's lawyers have donated to my campaign and GotTa look out for their best insurance. Go Go ahead and sell the country out. It's this is this is this is our democracy.

Trump’s impeachment trial - Day 3
"All right famed attorney royal Oakes attorney to the stars and a prominent legal analyst a regular here on a land of evening news is with us day three of the impeachment trial royal always good to speak with you my friend welcome back good to talk to you and I never thought I'd feel sorry for United States senators but I'm starting to feel that way after their twelve hour plus days with no cell phone they can't say a word and listening to the speakers essentially regurgitate the same message over and over it's going to be a little tedious for them yeah absolutely and just a little side note you probably heard that they're only allowed to have water or milk in the on the Senate floor as well no caffeine making it even more difficult this is only the third impeachment trial in the Senate ever so there is really no mold or model to go by royal right everybody is saying the Clinton rules this is how we did it with Bill Clinton this is how we should do it here but from a real court room perspective what do you think about how this is going well it's hard to think of it if from a real courtrooms perspective because it's so different for example here Chief Justice John Roberts is kind of ceremonial he can be overruled at any point on any issue by a majority of the Senate and so yeah it's it's hard to think of it in those terms of the jury of course instead of middle Boris we picking people who can be objective you've got a hundred people who are political animals you gotta figure that pretty much already made up their minds you covered the president Clinton impeachment what do you think about Donald trump's legal team especially Ken Starr it was amazing that he would hire somebody a few days before the trial I know these guys are brilliant lawyers but you know when you get ready for trial you're totally immersing yourself like a tea bag into this soup of evidence and it's amazing to think that they don't have to be able to get up to speed that quickly and when you compare to Clinton of course you suggest that's the model where you have some deposition testimony videotaped of Monica Lewinsky back then in a couple of other witnesses and then it was played on TV for the senators that's what Mitch McConnell I think is hoping for you to know what this is we're just a few video tech with this is to keep this thing a short and sweet as possible and going back to the two original charges when the house passed the impeachment charges against president trump abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and what we're hearing from a lot of our listeners and what we're hearing from Republicans is that the obstruction of Congress is not a real crimes or it's certainly not an impeachable offense is that true well you know what it boils down to is that there are no clear guidelines as to what is impeachment worth it now if you argue that it has to be a crime literally on the criminal law statute books then there's a good argument to trump didn't commit a formal crime but the Democrats believe that something is generic and anymore this is abuse of power is a legitimate basis for impeachment we'll see what the senator said but probably more importantly was hit with the voters say in November there's no jury here but they do have to convince the Senate which is ultimately the jury that the president did abuse his power it's a subject of thing doubly subjective very political and of course let's face it realistically the Democrats down fifty three to forty seven in the Senate to convict you have to have a two thirds vote or sixty seven where are they going to get twenty Republican senators to vote for conviction is just not going to happen unless a nixonian smoking gun piece of evidence emerges it's kind of for show it's a made for television production with the Democrats hoping that it will sink into the voting public and influenced or voted November all right royal oaks with us from Los Angeles royal thank you as always okay if you take

Comparing the impeachment trials of President Clinton and President Trump
"Right now on Capitol Hill ahead of the one PM eastern resumption of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump some Senate Republicans are holding a news conference led by Lindsey Graham South Carolina chair of the Judiciary Committee thank you all very much observations about yesterday it was a long day but that's okay a lot of Americans have long days a couple things I've been involved into impeachment trials this is the second one I just want to make an observation here what the house managers were proposing yesterday is basically destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it make it make it when it comes to the partisan impeachment not have a venue to go to court and litigate privileges at the end of an exercise our prior presence when it comes to Donald Trump willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him so bottom line the Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel there's not here Ken Starr spent five years investigating the president before we took up the matter in the house the president was allowed to cross examining Ken Starr at the house Judiciary Committee he recommended eleven grounds for impeachment and president Clinton utilize the court's extensively on his behalf Robert Mull was an outside counsel appointed to investigate this press I want the public to note that this president cooperated with Mister Miller he turned over million documents his lawyer testified for thirty hours and after two years of investigation with nineteen lawyers forty F. B. I. agents two thousand subpoenas and five hundred search warrants they decided to take no action they said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and the Russian government when it came to obstruction of justice they did not recommend any action I thought that would be the end of actually introduce legislation to say that Robert Muller cannot be removed accept the call because the president felt like the motor investigation was of which I did not the present was frustrated because he said he did nothing wrong I can understand that but it was important for me to make sure that the country would have somebody to look at these allegations Ross are very serious and I supported Mahler's ability to look any work for a long time and I thought it would be over Mr Shipp said yesterday what they did in the house was just like what we did with Clint that is absolutely untrue from the time they authorized impeachment it took forty eight days not two years with Mahler not five years like Clint the forty eight days the fact finding process was done in the Intel committee now the Judiciary Committee the present was denied the right to cancel the Intel committee and could not request with they spent one day in the Judiciary Committee go back and look at the tapes of how long can start testified before the Senate excuse me the house Judiciary Committee of which I was a far what we've done for the first time in American history isn't Peter president without outside counsel and all in a forty eight day period well here's what struck me the most where the house manager said reason we didn't go to court we don't want to go through the courts is that we can engage in before the election they withdrew from the Cumberland cover of the dead the national security adviser case where the dead the national security adviser what course to tell me what to do judge the house actually withdrew the subpoena because they didn't want the court process to stop the impeachment trial they would have the United States Senate create an impeachment process where the president would not be allowed to go to article three court to argue privileges that have been argued in every other impeachment trial and have been argued by president since George Washington that would destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it what would it do it would allow a handful any three hundred plus million country people all along partisan lines ten PH a president without independent judiciary the before I came here I used to try cases we have a lot of good lawyers in this body all I can say is that when the court date was set and if I showed up and asked for a bunch of subpoenas and documents to be produced on the day of trial that I had not pursued before the trial in any serious way how to get tossed out what do we do yesterday exactly what happened in the Clinton impeachment trial we're going to hear the house's gate the president's response we're going to ask questions then we'll decide among ourselves do we want to know anything yesterday was about eleven hours of them telling us how bad their case was in my view they did not pursue these witnesses because they knew the president what's the judiciary very us and it literally would stop them impeaching him before the election so the only thing I can tell the American people when it comes to replacing those present nine months plus from the election you got an up hill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person group of people to pick a president are the voters not a bunch of partisan politicians senator Lindsey Graham every day we're here doing this is a day were taken away from doing things that really matter so when they say it was like Clinton no when they say the court's really have no place in impeachment that's all going to be done by the house and the Senate without any independent judicial review god help us all center Steve Daines of Montana we had a lot of time last night thank some twelve hours on the floor of the US Senate is the first impeachment trial I've been through senator Graham is the experience that is his prior political life it reminded me of when I went to high school in Bozeman Montana if I turned in a term paper he was half complete my teacher toss it back to me they didn't get it done is incomplete probably give it up and say it's a complete try yeah that's why I felt like we saw last night was an incomplete case I have not done a complete homework you're my enemy what Nancy posted back in two thousand ten on the Obama care is that first we got a pass to find out was it it feels like what happened last night they had a rush this through the house just get over to the Senate we'll find out what's really in try to fix a fair let me remind you remind all of us in two hundred forty four years of history of this great country United States Senate has never remove a president from office never you look at the two trials for presence but we have had in the Senate over the course of our history President Johnson eighteen sixty of course president Clinton nineteen ninety nine what's unique about this impeachment trial versus the other two the other two both had crimes alleged in the impeachment articles president trump does not the other two impeachment trials had bipartisan support coming out of the house president trump impeachment coming out of the house did not first time I've ever seen there were many things that I agreed with with with a German never said last night but he did say some and I hope everybody hurts actually back to the Clinton days was it and I will paraphrase it and god help us if we ever purely partisan basis numbers work back then were wives and I hope you would see them today this is the most hardest impeachment process ever seen a history of this great country no crimes alleged in the trunk articles not bipartisan in a very important final point is if you look for the Democrats are asking United States Senate to do is to remove president trump from office and to bar him from ever holding office again was also unique about this trial versus president when this is done in an election it's really big the fundamental question as well is to the United States Senate the side the two thousand twenty election and overturn a two thousand sixteen election by removing this president from office I put the trust in the voters of this country they should have that say not the nicest

Ken Starr Baylor University Scandal
"Ken Starr is best known for his investigation that helped lead to the impeachment of president Bill Clinton and now he'll be playing a part in the defense of president trump during his impeachment trial in between these chapters in presidential impeachment store worked for six years as president of Baylor University in Texas which is the nation's largest Baptist university and where he was forced out over his handling of sexual assault scandals we're joined now by Paula Levin an investigative reporter for ESPN who wrote a book about the scandal welcome thank you so I want you to bring us back to twenty ten when Ken Starr first became president of Baylor University what brought him there like what were the university's aspirations when they picked him to lead them was an interesting choice I mean he was not someone who had history with with Baylor but he was a big name and they were looking to raise their profile and to raise more money for the university and thought that bringing him in would would really appeal to the donors and he had a Christian background it was a very important aspect for how they ran the university and they were really hoping that he could bring them into the next chapter will publicity is certainly what thank god in twenty fifteen when things drastically changed when scandal first hit the national headlines because a football player at Baylor was convicted of sexual assault can tell us what happened there right so football player Sam echo what she was convicted of sexual assault and why it raise some eyebrows more so than some other cases was that he had previously been cleared by university investigation which actually would have a lower burden of proof in a criminal conviction and what the media and others came up with were additional reports of sexual assaults involving football players that led to an internal investigation and then what the media and those investigators found was that Baylor's failure to address sexual violence was not just a problem with the football program it was a campus wide issue that even getting worse over the years women being silenced victim blames retaliated against this so this leads to may twenty sixteen the border regions decides to fire head football coach art Briles they suspend the athletic director and they demote Ken Starr he'd later that summer steps down from all of his rolls of Baylor and departs so what do we know about whatever personal role Ken Starr had in this scandal did he play personal well I think Ken Starr's role was one of someone who was responsible for making sure that this got addressed to Baylor bites dropped the ball on that a good example of that is that federal guidelines required the university to appoint someone to title nine coordinator and so he does that but he gives that job to someone who was handling human resources and who already had a full time job and who's not really equipped to to deal with that just doesn't make it a priority does what's in his position that he didn't know so many women were coming forward with reports of sexual sorrow he didn't know what happened to those reports of sexual assault well right so after this all played out that's it that's what he was saying is like I wasn't aware that all of this was happening and how serious this all was and a lot of what happened with his discussions and and the border regions when he was demoted has not come out because they've both sides agreed to keep silent about a lot of that but at the end of the day no one has ever come forward and said that he specifically knew about a case of sexual assault that he covered after that he had a role in covering up and and that is important it's more that he was sort of out to lunch on the issue big picture so what is Baylor University done to address the culture that led to the scandal I would say that there are people who say it hasn't gone far enough and that there are still issues I mean I they did have a massive turnover best you know Ken Starr leaving athletic director Briles and then after that it and number of other people at lower levels but I think something that's important to mention is that they're still alive loose sense of this there are multiple women who filed title nine gender discrimination lawsuits against Baylor some of those are still pending but another thing to keep in mind is that there were a number of entities that launched investigations including the US department of education and that investigation is still
