"Kevin downing discussed a three and a half year sentence handed out to former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, a DC federal court palace sentence that is totally unnecessary much. Like this combined with his sentence in Virginia Manafort received a total of seven and a half years and the Manhattan District Attorney announced a new sixteen count fraud indictment against Manafort, their conflicting accounts of former acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker's appearance before the leaders of the House Judiciary committee Whitaker who refused to answer. Many questions in open session last month spoke today to chairman, Jerry, Nadler of New York and ranking Republican. Doug Collins of Georgia. Adler says one of his big takeaways in the hearing room, Mr. good did not deny the president called into the us.

"Download now. Probably the best way to get the truth would be to put the president under oath after all he has said it's not like I'm talking before a magistrate. Well, maybe he should talk before magistrate. That's a reckoning for progressives. And Democrats who hope that Muller would essentially raise the two thousand sixteen election. It's a reckoning for the media. It's a reckoning around the country. If in fact after all this time, there was no collusion. Revolution. Sean Hannity show. Information on news and more bold inspired solutions for America. There was absolutely no evidence that any Russian collusion in this case. So that makes. No evidence. Collusion russian. Very. That is totally unnecessary. Wow. That was out of the courthouse. Protesters screaming at Paul manafort's attorney Kevin downing say, yeah. To judges conceited no evidence of Trump Russia collusion, and now Paul Manafort sentences in a second case in unless this guy dies in jail. It's going to be so dissatisfying people on the left before that Richard Blumenthal pardoning Paul Manafort would be obstruction of Justice. No that is a power of the presidency. A constitutional power of the u s president to be used that his or her discretion is not a power that is even question. Anyway, joining us to talk about the very latest on this. We have John Solomon of the hill. And we're going to talk about the release yesterday of Lisa page is testimony is now this poll two years. There's a culmination of unpeeled onion is is now reaping some benefit and we see that the end of the tunnel year. There are going to be indictments and all names, you're going to be familiar with her in deep trouble. Greg Jarrett author of the number one bestseller the Russian hoax. Let me ask from a legal standpoint. Greg you I let's talk about the sentencing. But more importantly, I want to talk about what happened immediately thereafter with the Manhattan District Attorney because Bernie Kerik had a great tweet about this. This is the greatest demonstration yet of a politically motivated corrupt at Manhattan DA who pre announced his intention coordinated with Muller's team to ensure that Manafort dies in prison. Immediately after this was charged with sixteen new charges not federal in Manhattan, can you? I'll let you explain it from the legal perspective. This is this is redundant. It's overkill. It should be double jeopardy, but the law doesn't favor that unfortunately. So yeah, I mean, they're still going after Paul Manafort with a vengeance. Even though to judges have now said in their respective cases involving him that there is no evidence of collusion that on top of the house that on top of the Senate, and I suspect that if Robert Mueller the special counsel had evidence of collusion. Somebody would have been charged by now. But so far it hasn't happened. Do you? Seems like it was all planned now why the second after he's sentenced. Oh, of course, it was seven years. How many years would he have to spend in prison? Well, he'll probably get a fifteen percent reduction for good behaviour. So that's the knock off on not like state courts where you get a lot more for good behavior. So he's he's probably gonna have to do, you know, at least six and a half years. Yeah. I mean at seven and a half years total. So I guess some of this must have been concurrent, correct? Yeah. I think thirty seven months is concurrent or somewhere around there. So, but you know, he's he's going to have to do some years behind bars in dick Blumenthal is wrong. It's not obstruction of Justice to exercise. Your constitutional duty is president pardon somebody. But you know, every time Blumenthal opens your smell the demonstrates his ignorance of the law. He was also leading the I believe I believe haven't heard him say, I believe about the democratic Lieutenant. Governor in Virginia the Commonwealth there. Let me get your reaction John Solomon to today's, you know, sentencing hearing, the reaction you hear outside of the courtroom is just you know, it's sort of like the leftist triggered. One of the things now that we have to judges conceding. There was no evidence of Trump Russia collusion, in these cases. We're expecting any day. Now, the Muller reports gotta to be at least handed over to the AGA. I don't think we'll know for some time whether whether part of that or any of that is going to be released, but you have. Pretty good authority. Your sources are telling you pretty confidently that there is no Trump Russia collusion that was found by Muller. Certainly. That's what people are telling me. And no one will know for sure until the moment. The only guy that matters hits the send button, and that's about Muller right him. And he hit that send button he transmits that reports of the Justice department will finally know the answer, but I think in every public setting we have seen in the last couple of years from the chairman of the house intelligence committee, Devon Nunez. The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Richard berm to judges in the Manafort case to every other sentencing involving defendant in the mother in prosecutions and in mother's own statements and indictments there has not been a single allegation of collusion between the presidential campaign in Russia. And I think that what we know from the body of evidence is that it didn't exist in another big important piece of that evidence came out yesterday. As you know earlier on your show. We broke the story stories about love is in Lisa pages testimony, but the official transcript came out yesterday. What did Lisa page fellas after nine months of using the most awesome powers of the FBI had ffices surveillance interrogation monitoring in may of two thousand seventeen they still had no evidence to prove anything of collusion as Christopher Steele had alleged in his dossier. If all of that investigation, couldn't turn it up and all two years of turning in indicting defendants hasn't turned anything up. I think it's highly unlikely, and I think today when you watch what happens today the protesters outside the immediate reindicted in New York by Sivan's, very political prosecutor in Manhattan. You see a lot more politics in the court of law them, I think most of us would like to see these legal cases should stand on their own merit. And yet you see in the form of protests in the form of a sudden reindicted timed to the end of the sentencing a lot of political shenanigans going on in the legal system. You know, it ju I agree with that completely. I mean, you just sit down with they're just waiting. Oh, just in case, you think Donald Trump's gonna pardon you. We're gonna make sure you die in prison. And that's how I took it with this today. And yeah, there is overkill at some particular point with all of this. When you go though, we look back at the narrow had two weeks of release. Let's just assume for a moment John sources or right? I've been hearing the same thing Democrats seem to be telegraphing that they know that there's not going to be what they want and the Muller report in terms of a pathway to impeaching the president over collusion because there wasn't any I expect it'll be sternly written and they'll be innuendo in there. Because I guess they they'll feel compelled to do so to justify their existence, Greg. But beyond that, it's a law that matters. But what is now beginning to build or the things that we want him for a long time yesterday. We got Lisa pages. Testimony Lisa page, basically, affirming, everything we believe that the department of Justice that would be Obama's Justice department that would be attorney general Lynch we're up to their eyeballs. In helping to protect and prevent Hillary Clinton from being charged as any other American would have been charged. And and even Lisa page acknowledged all protocols were put aside, we also know Komi in stroke wrote. The exoneration purposely withdrew those magical words that met the legal standard gross negligence. They added a new standard called intent that is not part of the law. I'm so the the the fix was in Hillary was never going to get indicted, even though even James Baker the chief counsel under Komi at the FBI thought, she should be indited. Absolutely. The couple of things jump out with her testimony of the first one is she said, quote, every person on the Team New no charges would be brought fast forward about seventy pages. And she admits the department of Justice actually, ordered that Clinton not be charged for gross negligence. She was pressed about that. What was the rationale? She said. Well, there was some discussion that she didn't have the intent as you just pointed out intense not required under the gross negligence provision, but she could have been charged under the intent provisions because page fast forward, another fifty pages admits that intent is not intend to break the law. The legal standard is intent to commit an act that has the effect of breaking the law and it's abundantly clear by Clinton's own admission. She intended to set up a private server intended, use it exclusively for all of her emails, including classified documents, that's an intent crime. She should have been charged under both intent and gross negligence. But the fix was in. Wow. I wanna get your take on it. Now, John there's a Utah to explain the five buckets because the testimony that we're getting. Thanks to Doug Collins, a Republican from Georgia. Congressman right. He gave us last week or testimony. Now, he gave us Lisa pages. Testimony. We and he says he's going to give us all of it. And and but we have the the information you want and I want three oh twos. The FIS application. We we want the gang of eight information, and you can explain what all this will will bring to light. Greg get such a great job as he always does. And analyzing all the legally significant things that that Lisa page about the Clinton case. There's one thing that jumped out at me on the Russia case. And that is the question has always lingered over this. How much did politics play in a role in making the decisions the FBI did. And by her own admission Lisa page testifies that they were weighing the fact that they didn't think Donald Trump would win the presidency as one of the ways in how much they should investigate the Russia allegations. And I think that that is such. An extraordinary admission I have never in all my life covering thirty two years of the FBI ever heard an employee of the FBI claim that the winning or losing of election was going to affect the tactics or the intent of an investigation. And it explains something that happens a day after something you, and I I reported on your show a long time ago the day after Donald Trump wins they escalate their efforts by a major proportion which shows that politics was involved. If this was any other case, he would investigate it because the allegation is serious and the security is at risk here. It's not serious if he's going to win. But if he is going to win it's going to be serious. It shows the raw political nature and that politics did infect decisions certainly in the Russia investigation. Now, how much do they affect it?.

My wife approaches me instead of waiting to see what my mood is. And I realized again, I was setting the pace for everything not only in business, but in my personal life. So I'm talking to everyone listening to this that if you think that the problem is someone else odds are you're walking into the scene with armor on you have filters on from the abuse, and the and the trauma that you've experienced. And if no one helps you take those filters off you're seeing the world in very twisted twisted perspective, and your family's taken the brunt of they sure have man. Yeah. I can relate to that.

And how do you coach people? That's a really good question man in, you know, over the years is coaching consult now over eighteen hundred entrepreneurs, and it's never about their business. It's always starts at their personal life self-discipline the foundation, and then we go into their business about marketing, selling, etc. Everyone who comes to me as a business coach consultant, he helped me fix my business. I start with the other areas of matter. Most the family the self-disciplined the morning routines, and you can very quickly see lack of confidence because when you tell someone we'll I want you to spend X amount of dollars on YouTube or Facebook or Google to buy traffic, and they don't have the confidence to it's not because of any other reason other than they've broken promises to themselves..

"We never had any of the inside people like that cooperating to the extent that both of them have to cooperate. So we really do have an insider's view of what Trump was doing and what was happening during that campaign. There was something the metaphor it's attorney said today, Kevin downing. I wanted to play Natasha and get your feedback, and it just struck my ear sort of. Oddly tickle them. Mr. Manafort, but he's accept the responsibility and he wanted to make sure that his family was able to remain safe and live a life wanted to make sure his family was able to remain safe. Yeah. So as soon as I heard this, I asked lawyers about and whether or not once he strikes this kind of deal and whether and when he chooses to cooperate, that means the government would then be required to afford him and his family, some kind of protection, and the unanimous answer got was yes. There would be another layer of protection that he would get now that he's actively coordinating with the government. I think that Manafort is less worried about the Russians coming after him and is just arrogant. I think that he was sitting in a jail cell and he knew that the walls were closing in on him, and he chose to trust Muller more than he trusts Donald Trump. And that's really significant. Because of course, Donald Trump is a very fickle person choose to give them a part in or. Could not. And one of the things that I'll be looking for is what Manafort actually says about whether or not he was dangled pardon by the president because they did have this joint defense agreement. And if Trump said, I will give you pardon, for example, in exchange for your silence, then that would not be obese subjected subject to the crime fraud exception that would be a crime, and he would be able to tell me about that. Nick Ackerman, tasha, Bertrand and Ben witness. Thanks for being on here.

Both the house intelligence and judiciary committee's your reaction to the president's campaign chairman pleading guilty and agreeing to cooperate. Good evening. Chris, the jig is up this nonsense that there's nothing to see here. This witch-hunt will now the Trump team is over Muller and is Muller continues to zero in on the president's family businesses campaign. I think the best thing. President can do. Chris is to just be straight with the American people and certainly be straight with the investigation because he now has a bankrupt credibility and so that credibility affects not just the Russian investigation, but his ability to lead in storm ability to address healthcare issues in America is ability to address the economy. And so the more he refuses to sit down with the molar team, they obtain more guilty pleas and send more people to jail. I think that affects Donald Trump's ability to lead our country. Did this development as someone who is has been on the committee investigating this this development today? Surprise, you know, no, but what I hope we can obtain from this as well. And I hope the molar team is able to learn not just Paul manafort's relationship Donald Trump and what he knows of Donald Trump's knowledge at the time is to what the Russian intentions were and what Donald Trump gave as far as orders, but also how the Russian television network works because it's clear that Paul Manafort was close to rush. Shen intelligence officers based on other people who have been indicted and other press reporting. So we could really color in, I think, some gaps and understanding of how the Russians work. If Paul Manafort is able to cooperate. You know, it was striking to me that the Constan Kalinic who is the Manafort sort of deputy and associate new crane.

"Day. One of deliberations is history and the Manafort trial after going at it for about seven hours today, the jury will be back at it at nine thirty AM. They have spoken. The jurors have laid today in the form of notes to the judge very common and deliberations. The six men. Six women asked targeted questions on Bank fraud charges and for clarification about the evidence list and perhaps most notably there's this. They asked, can you redefine reasonable doubt while the judge responded to the jury and get this quote, the government is not required to prove the defendant's guilt with respect to each element of the offense. Beyond all possible doubt, the test is one of reasonable doubt. What is a reasonable doubt? It is a doubt based on reason, helpful exiting court today. Manafort's lawyer, Kevin downing was all smiles. But we just got some good news juries been deliberating. They had some questions which the judge addressed, and they've asked to come back tomorrow, continue deliberations. So overall, very good day for Mr. Manafort. I think it's all one caveat. Most days he declares very good days for Mr.. Manafort with us tonight is Darren Samuelson senior reporter for politico who's been at the courthouse every day of the trial. Darren, thanks after a long day for joining us. I really do appreciate it. You don't have to be Felix Frankfurter to know that a question from the jury about reasonable doubt is not great for the prosecution, because if they're asking about it at all, they're asking about it period. Talk to us about that and what other tea leaf reading is going on? Well, it is very dangerous to read the tea leaves. I know we love Noonan shirt thing. Indeed, there are going to probably be more questions that they will bring forward as well in the coming days. So we're going to dive in and look at these four questions here now, but know full well that there's going to be more questions to come. There's a lot of testimony that they have to digest. They've sat through to mind numbing weeks of hearing evidence hearing from accounts. Hearing from tax preparers hearing from Rick gates, hearing from a lot of people who Paul Manafort was purchasing very expensive things from now. They're in a room and they don't have access to the twenty five hundred pages of transcripts that are basically available for you and I, they don't have access to Google. They can't look anything up. They basically have to rely on what they remember today that came forward in these four questions and the reasonable doubt. One is interesting that is something that Paul manafort's lawyers in their closing arguments hit on really hard. They tried to show a, they showed a graphic that it was sort of a thermometer taking you all the way up to where reasonable doubt is on the spectrum and making it clear that this is something that they really need to be. Absolutely sure. At least that's the position at the Paul Manafort team presented to them. But as the judge pointed out, it isn't quite that high of a threshold, but he didn't really give them that much more guidance than that. So maybe that argument got to at least one person and I know you've been going through the questions and if you match them up against the trial as argued youth. Think there's there's a tax fraud section. There's a banking you think they may be through with the tax fraud section. Again, tea leaf, warnings apply, tea leaf. Warnings definitely apply. But by asking the question about the foreign Bank accounts, that sort of the second subset of charges we're talking, there are eighteen charges and all eighteen counts. The first four. I believe our tax return charges that Paul Manafort filed false tax returns if they're going in order. And that is a big if it would seem like they've moved beyond that and they're now dealing with the foreign Bank account questions as well. They saw a lot of evidence. They had someone from the treasury department who testified and said, I looked up whether Paul Manafort filed foreign Bank account reports with the US government and didn't find them. That's a pretty clear and concise explanation that the prosecutors put before them. But at the very end of the arguments, the Paul Manafort defense in the cross examination and in their closing arguments made a point that Paul Manafort wasn't the sole owner of those foreign Bank accounts..

"Manafort just rested his case and. He did so because he and his legal team that the government has not met its burden of. Proof, thanks everyone The words, of Kevin downing. Their lawyer for Paul Manafort outside the federal courthouse in Alexandria Virginia today after day eleven Paul. Manafort's, defense rested without calling any witnesses including. Metaphor himself and that's, a decision that now puts this tax and Bank fraud trial toured its, final stages, Hello and welcome to Washington today for Tuesday, the fourteenth of August this is Paul war gal more about the, Manafort story in a moment but first some of, the other headlines from the day this one out, of Nebraska where prison officials have used.

Appear particularly motivated in Wisconsin where eight candidates are vying for the chance to take on Republican governor Scott Walker by the way today the former New Mexico governor and. Libertarian, presidential candidate Gary Johnson announced that he's launching a Senate campaign in New Mexico Tom Jackman is one of those covering the, trial for the Washington Post Mr. Jackman the jurors we. Understand where sent home at about one thirty pm today what had happened in court before that point well there's about two hours there. We have no idea, what happened to this to court with called at nine thirty and the courtroom doors were closed? Something was, going on in there that has not yet been revealed and then the courtroom was not opened until eleven thirty Manafort came in at eleven forty and. The two sides argued the standard motion, to dismiss, filed, at, the end. Of the prosecution's case in any criminal case the judge rejected it and then turn to the defense instead what kind of case you. Got he said we're, not going to put on any evidence and we're. Not gonna put on Mr. Manafort we rushed and that was it That was the the, sum total of today in court so very was later. Brought in to to hear that again because that part was done without the jury present and then the day was over for them. Was going to ask, you that that became a question why no witnesses or evidence, from the defense they must think, and I, was just plotting this out of a moment ago with someone else that Dave raised doubt about the documents that were filed You know with the government in terms of not That filing his income statements properly and also with the banks that he got these loans from where he claimed, to have massive income that he didn't, actually have and they're the defense posited that well Rick gates might fill, these forms out Mr. Manafort associated their consulting firm or he really did. Have more collateral and it's just not, accurately reflected and so their defense is somewhat technical but whatever, works for them and they must feel like they they made. Some inroads into the prosecution's case and closing arguments. We understand, start at nine thirty eastern time tomorrow Mr. Jack what are you looking for? In, terms of length and substance in those arguments. Well the judge originally gave them two hours aside and then this morning he asked both sides if they could, cut it. Down to an, hour and, a half they resisted they took a Break, around one, thirty in there In the, courtroom now talking about jury instruction so we'll find out if they get. Less or more than two hours but roughly that and the government is is supposed to keep their focus narrowly on the crimes and alleged here which are tax evasion failing report his income properly and Bank for lying to the banks about what kind of money and assets. He had and. Kind of dry in that respect it doesn't talk. About Russia doesn't talk about Ukraine, it doesn't talk about President Trump. But those were the charges here so I think that the government is required to to limit their scope just. To those sort of, paperwork charges and then of course things would go to the, jury, just in terms of timing Tom what do you anticipate in terms of when the the full, trial be, over with. Could be let's see tomorrow's Wednesday we have four hours of closing Arguments. That would take us, probably into early afternoon the jury gets the case then let's, say, let's look for a verdict on Thursday morning what else would you be looking for as things, begin to, wind down. The metaphor trial I guess we Well obviously. The verdict here now that we know, that Manafort is not going to testify and then whether or not this has. Any impact on he still has charges pending against him in Washington DC for failing to register as. A foreign agent for Ukraine and a lot of. Times a verdict in one. Case causes an, effect in the second such as a guilty. Plea and then there's always the possibility of being pardoned by the president and that could? Come as well Tom Jackman of the Washington Post thanks for your time and you're very welcome Meantime over at the White House today Sarah, Sanders the press secretary took some questions from reporters on a variety of issues. Including the latest on the x. Trump aide who was named maroshek manigault Newman she is alleged, that she heard the president on tape at some point using the n. word this particular exchange with Jonathan Karl of ABC talks about the. President's response to the ongoing controversy in which he called the. Maroshek a dog here's, how it played out From the president via Twitter on describing her as crazed, crying lowlights dog is this any way for a president any American let alone. Somebody hired as the highest ranking African American woman serving his White House I think the president, is certainly voicing his frustration with the fact that this person has shown a complete lack of integrity particularly by the actions following her time. Here at the White House Hire something's describing as a dog I wanted to give her a chance and he made clear when general Kelly came on and he voiced concerns that this individual what didn't have the best interests of the White House and the president. And the country at heart The president said do what you can to get along and if you can't I gave him full authority to carry out the decision to let her go safe strategy and continuing to respond to the charges Why does. He, just ignored look I think he's made again the frustrations I think all. Not only those of us here in the White House but, frankly, I think most of America would be happy to ignore it unfortunately the individuals. In this room continue to create a large platform for somebody they know not to have a lot of credibility for someone frankly refused to give a platform to when they worked here at the. White House it wasn't until this individual started to negatively attack this president and this administration and try to tear this entire Fleiss down that she received, the type of platform and roll out that she's getting I think it would be great if every single person in this room, and every single person in the, administration never had to talk. About this again and we actually got to focus on the. Real policies and the, real things that not matter just two. People in this building, but certainly all Americans African Americans Hispanics and everybody in between I think that would be the best thing that we could certainly Divert country President Trump, in a tweet today denied ever using the n. word that is something that Omarosa says the president did do before he moved, into the White House while he, was host of the show. Apprentice the apprentice on television here's more from the White House briefing President if he's ever used the unmarked the president address that question directly via Twitter Ag refer you back to him I can certainly say I've never heard him use. That term or anything similar you ask The president I didn't have to because he addressed it to the American people. All at one time, last again the president answered that question directly on Twitter. Earlier today.

Team called, yesterday a good day in his trial that is former business partner Rick, gates took the witness stand again ABC's Trish Turner is at the courthouse again in? Alexandria Virginia and joins us ahead of today's action good morning good morning guys. Should seem, like a lot more damaging testimony from gates but were there aspects of it. That Manafort could call a win. For his case they certainly seemed when. They left, like they had a win in their pocket. I mean we defense counsel Kevin downing for Paul manafort's that we. Had a great day. I think they were all smiles they were just a number of times I mean. There's always a, risk gray when you're introducing the government is a witness who has committed a lot of, crime he's admitted to crime he admitted to even more crimes that we knew. About embezzling money from his boss so that's a I think it's fair to say that the flawed Character. The government's trying to present and Kevin downing and just an extraordinary moment as if we didn't need any. More in this is that we need it more in this trial I'm even elicited from Rick. Gates that you know he had a, whole, secret life he was living with a mistress and, London, that while the and he was a. Dazzling some, of the money for that life and you know I mean Ricky get, the chance to stay I truly regret everything I did I'm trying to take responsibility. But you know if you're a attorney you're sitting there obviously it's a lot. A lot, of material away for no doubt it's interesting though I wonder Tricia if this. May be if this could possibly. Backfires well because the joke is they're. Supposed to, be honor among thieves well there's no honor. In this so the more you sully gates his character I I. Don't know if that. Necessarily reflects bad necessarily engage reflects on Manafort that I'm bad I'm just trying to. Show your worse, and so we're having degrees of worst Nissen this That, is probably the best way I've heard of that yeah I. Mean, you have to imagine if. Richer this is extraordinarily difficult because, you are. You're, you're weighing alleged criminal what's that Paul Manafort and you're weighing one who's admitted to a. Lot of crime that that's the lesser. Of two people maybe you know I don't know Yeah I have to think I'm glad I'm not a juror alliterate it, that way, because it, seems like, a, sort of you know how do you balance that I don't know got. Any idea what happens today what what more they, want to, hear from gates it'll be day three of him on the. On the stand so I think. It's more of we have about an hour left with defense questioning gates you know cross-examining gates I'm they're kicking. Through a litany, of crime how he committed all of this, it criminal activity who knows if we get additional you know criminal activity or. More secret lives out in, the next, hour that's something that, will be interesting I think then the government. Gets another go at him called redirect that could last. A. Good amount, of time I don't know maybe an hour if I had to guess and, then the defense gets. The last? Words they get to re examine gates so I think that takes you know maybe half a day but no. Clear, path forward, from the government It just yet we don't. Do they go to next we. Just know that they're not finished with their witnesses I'm so no doubt they want to wrap around unimpeachable witnesses. With 'em you, know solid stories to tell around gapes you, know so he's kind of bookended by you know by solid witnesses unimpeachable character. ABC's Chris Turner she's at, the courthouse, in Alexandria Virginia thank, you Trish Rabin our eyes and ears we My, pleasure 556 on.
