'This Is the Stuff That Mobs Do': Blowing Hillary's Russia Collusion Conspiracy Wide Open
"Bob muller comes onto the scene in the spring of seventeen after president trump fires komi right and paul ryan and too many republicans agreed to put muller on all under this cloud of the multi. What you're trying to tell me is the millions of dollars that hillary clinton pumped through was also maybe used to sweeten some journalists to write stories about this russia. Thing potentially right. I mean this story was so totally artificial. We got bob muller of yeah. I would go one step further. It's not even potentially it happened. Look we took sixty depositions under chairman newness under oath. They're all public now. Adam schiff didn't want him out. Rick grenell allied declassified them two years later and we put him out there online you can read the sussman deposition that i took that cited. In the durham indictment. That says he was talking to members of the media at the behest of client the client being the dnc fusion gps. Doing the same thing taking the same false sturt going to media and saying you guys got to put this story out and then. Here's the kicker hillary clinton and jake sullivan come in and tweet out information. As if they've never heard of it before and say look. President trump has a secret back channel to russia. If you remember this stuff in the fall of sixteen and they were the ones paying for it they pretending to know nothing about it and then they had a willing media. This is the stuff that mobs do literally. I mean this this monkey. It really
Trump Secretly Subpoenaed Records of Democrats on House Intelligence Committee
"Breaking news tonight about the trump justice department's abusive power to investigate its enemies new york times reports. Prosecutors subpoenaed apple for data from the accounts of at least two democrats on the house intelligence committee aides and family members. One was a minor all told the records of at least a dozen people tied. The committee were seized in two thousand seventeen and early twentieth eighteen including those representative. Adam schiff of california then the panel's top democrat and now it's chairman katie. Benner covers the justice department from your times is one of the bylines on this story and she joins me now on the phone and thank you. Katie on short notice for joining us. Just walk us through what we know here. Sure the investigation really begins in two thousand seventeen soon. After donald trump became president as we all know there were several stories very unflattering to him also involve the leaks of sensitive or classified information. Jim komi talking. About memo's how. The president had pressured him to drop an investigation to michael national security adviser news about michael finn in michelson conversations with the russian ambassador and whether or not there's a questionable story after story basically detailing things about the trump administration that were highly questionable stories about the ongoing russian investigation which about with new to the public and the white house was determined to figure out who was the source of these leaks. Now people in the all the time administration's best all the time but we also saw as as these leaks were on and prosecutor started to think that they were hitting dead ends that they just never really
James Comey and Truth in Government
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I
EPISODE 35: Election Fraud / Interference - The Facts, The History & The Conspiracy Theory - burst 02
"It got me thinking back to twenty seventeen And it was about one hundred twenty days into president. Trump's presidency and i wrote an article on statecraft was over dot com called plot. Twist the komi in in it. I kind of touched on a scenario. That i thought was intriguing and it was right around the time that memo's were coming about For komi where the left was just so hard up to try and find something anything they can impeach president trump on and They're at that point in time. The democrats were demanding. Memo's be released in an investigation launched and impeachment proceedings to start and so i theorized in that article that you know what if blinded by their absolute rage over losing the election in november and doing whatever it takes to get president trump out of the white house they now have inadvertently exposed information within other memos comey may have made because they wanted to make all of comey's memo's pop public record right at the time it was all about how komi keeps these immaculate notes on everything and anything he does. It was the whole reason why after he was president trump that one day he immediately went out to his car grabbed laptop and started writing out notes from that from that meeting that everybody wanted where he's a take it easy anyway but that opened the door to all of comey's memo's well at the time and of course s things played out. You know we. We got access to some of them but not all of them and you know it really did kind of turn on the democrats what i thought because know i made the point. Could you imagine the look on president trump's face if he were to be exonerated of any wrongdoing which did happen right. He did get impeached but at the same point in time he got acquitted as well because there was no wrongdoing. Even the molar report showed that there was no wrongdoing. And you know those four hundred and forty eight pages are out there. There's very very little redacted to muller's credit into Ag bars credit there was very little redacted in that document. So you can actually go out and see. Just how much of the report was there. And there was no russian collusion which we knew all along well. Those of us who knew president trump knew all along but i wrote in the plot twists. The komi memo's back in two thousand seventeen and linked to it so you guys can go back and take a look at it if you want to. It's a short article to like a minute and a half to read. But anyway you know if i made the point that if he was exonerated of any wrongdoing and then to add insult to injury for the democratic party that You know they actually exposed through those memos and documents wrongdoing done by the democrats in thereby getting hillary clinton locked up right which you know we finding out now. Due to release of memos that were done earlier this year. But that's exactly what happened. That this whole russian collusion story that chased or that was held over a president trump ted for two years and You know hindered. His presidency in the beginning was all made up and fabricated by hillary. So in prepping for this week's podcast. I was thinking about that and so i wanted to kind of lay out since two thousand seventeen when i wrote that my gut knee joking reaction was actually right just took a while for it to pan out took almost four years for it to pan out but i was right. I wanted to talk about the election fraud now. Obviously we don't have four years to have this one pan out and president trump is running out of time and it's looking more and more likely that we will have a biden harris administration As much as it pains me to say. I
The First Thing Democrats Must Do if They Sweep Election Day
"Any moment now in fact, by the time, you hear this. Republicans may have already approved Amy Komi Barrett to be the next Supreme Court justice she. Might literally be the single most conservative person on the Supreme Court. Certainly, she will be as conservative as Clarence Thomas. She's an ultra conservative and has never hidden that that's why she's so popular among conservatives. And All of a sudden. Donald trump in a single term. Will have appointed more Supreme Court justices than Barack was able to do in two full terms. he in fact, will have appointed more supreme. Court justices than most presidents ever get to do. And Republicans are now doing the very thing they said just could not be done. In the final year of Barack Obama's administration. But here we are. I've talked about in many times they don't play by the same rules. They're not even playing the same game to F. The rules. These are these are two completely different games and. There are options. There are basically no options left at this point. To stop this nomination and Democrats. Have made it clear that they don't even really have. Democrats in the Senate Particularly, Democrats on the judiciary have made it clear that they don't really even have the guts to stop the nomination. There were many things they could have done to slow it down and and they chose basically none of them just even procedural things to delay it. But here we are and she is about to be approved by. The Republican Senate and I could even talk to you about where Democrats fumbled the ball to continue to give Republicans the Senate. But the. That are left at this point. Are Really going to require. Democrats to win the Senate majority. Joe Biden to win the White House and Democrats to keep the house. and. If those three things happen if Democrats control the House, the Senate and the presidency. Which is Democrats will keep control of the house. So you know put that to the side. They are enough of them running that will win their seats and keep their their majority and maybe even strengthening. Whether or not Democrats flip the Senate. And take the White House. It's still up in the air I mean voting is going to have to continue at a frenetic pace. Between a Noun Election Day election day will have to be huge. And and it's possible. But if those three things happen, there are then. Multiple. Very serious systemic. Changes, that have to be considered. And I, think in a lot of ways we have to look at what Chile just did as you may know. As you may or may not have seen. It got very little coverage in the mainstream American media but late, last night nearly eighty percent of all people in the country Chile. Voted to be able to completely rewrite their constitution. MEAN A. Picture major deal it was written nearly one hundred and fifty years ago. Of course, not only by all men, but it was written during the age of of a dictator. And now they have an opportunity to seriously shape shifted into something that is beautiful inequitable. I want to tell you right after the break some of the necessary changes. That our country and our government can can undertake do I think that we will. Overhaul our constitution. No probably I wish I. Wish It'd be a beautiful thing.
Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day
"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining
Parenting in a Pandemic with Pediatrician Dr Kelly Fradin
"What a great opportunity and a meaningful position that it sounds like also gives you a little bit more bandwidth to do other things like you know, write a book during the pandemic. Yeah exactly. Yeah. Why don't you tell us about the logistics of that since a lot of folks feel like there's a zero extra bandwidth how did you? How did you pull that off I know so I, I was trying to do it all between March. And June, you know watching my two and a half year old helping my son was zoom kindergarten and working part time from home like four hours a day and it was really difficult and my my little girl started carrying around a toy phone and saying I'm unaware Komi and I was like, okay, something has to change. So in June I took a leave of absence normally have the summers off every anyway but I went out couple of weeks early. And in July, I started to send out a newsletter and I compiled everything. I had written about Corona virus just in bits and pieces on instagram captions and it was fifty pages and I said my has in like it's like a lot of content I've already written like This and you know he said like, yeah, you should. You know you have. My background just fits really naturally with the topic like I did my college thesis about Stress Management in Psychology, and then in residency idea research on Kawasaki Disease, which is Kinda like misc and I did you know I know more than the average person about complex conditions and I published also on when you have respiratory illnesses and you're hospitalized as a child so it just felt like Kinda destiny that I should try to compile a resource to help families so I did it in in a month. mostly like from eight to midnight men sometimes in the morning and it was really fast and I think one of the things. That I learned from the experience was how important passion is professionally because when you get a project that you think is really important and when you believe in something, you can just you make it work. I hadn't had anything that I have been like so excited about in committed. In a while and so that was a nice experience to remind me like why we are we do we do. It sounds like you are perfectly positioned was that you did a conventional publishing deal writers itself. I did everything myself. So I've I've tried to learn a lot about like covers and book layouts in audio books I recorded my own audio book in my closet. About how we do podcasts over here? So Thankfully, totally with you on that. and. Anything writing about this other places to women. So Sarah and I saw what you had written in Emily. Newsletter of course, she is a previous podcast guests use the author of a couple of books like crib sheet expecting better about you know the actual research and what it says on on pregnancy in child raising and things like that, and she has a very balanced. Approach on risk and such like that which sounds like it fits a lot with your. Philosophy as well. So can you talk to our listeners a little bit about what you wrote for her newsletter about about code? Right, I you know I was so happy to connect with Emily Austria this this pandemic because. You. Know it's been a rapid fire Some scientists say it's like we're getting hit with a fire hose of information about corona virus because it's so new and everybody is thinking about it and talking about it. There's so much data to take in an analyze, but I was so happy and reassured to see that. When we all read all of the studies we kind of interpreted them in a similar way with regards to children's health, which is that while we don't know everything everything we do know so far is. Is On the more reassuring sign regarding children regarding the severity of illness, more similar to other respiratory illnesses like the flu and RSV that four children that that krona virus doesn't seem to be worse than other viruses. Now I think is important for a general audience that I emphasized these these regular respiratory viruses we see are a problem for children. Thousands of children are hospitalized every year for RSV and flu. So I'm not trying to dismiss or minimize the risk. There are children who have died of corona virus and it's a tragedy but I think it's also important that we take it in context as we make our decisions like what's different about this or what's new about this and how does it affect? Our decision making as parents. So what I tried to address for her her newsletter was about. How worried parents should be about the long term side effects of Corona virus for children because there's been a lot in the news about about long haulers, adults and children who have prolonged symptoms from coronavirus. So, we obviously have a lot to learn about this because it hasn't been very long but I tried to give my best guesses as a pediatrician about how to put this in context for families because statistically, for example, the MISC which is the sort of immune system overreaction that some children have from corona virus that lands them in the hospital. It's a scary disorder, but thankfully, it has been rare and treatable. So, while awareness about it is important, I don't think it's the kind of disorder that has to change parents opinions or keep them up at night worried about it because it is it is so rare at this point. So while they're certainly may be some long term side effects from Cremona. Virus. I think parents can leave that to doctors to worry about and research and learn about and and not worry about them. Now because I don't think we have evidence that they exist in a meaningful way. That should alter your decision making now.
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"Their developments in the Michael Flynn case as you just heard and as you've been hearing and it really is prosecutorial abuse not even misconduct misconduct it just sounds a my intends to soft for what the picture is coming together the degree to which the deep state the establishment the Barack Obama intelligence community and and if you think that this happened without the knowledge and involvement of Barack Obama you're crazy but the the the links to which they went to try and damage the incoming trump administration general Flynn was the national security adviser designate and he as such in that position of course had conversations with his counterparts around the world as everybody should we don't want to if you're appointed the secretary of state we don't spend the time between the election and inauguration day going yeah you know it sounds a good time to take a vacation I had a really go out and take a month off and then I'll be ready to hit the ground running come January twentieth that's not the way it works you have a massive apparatus that you have to get under your control you have policies you need to set in place policies that will likely differ from your predecessor so that'll take some time you have a whole bunch of key positions to fill as you do with the national security adviser it's not just one guy sitting in a desk go and tell me what you know and then I'll tell the president no you have to have staff with special areas they look at areas of you know the specialized in this part of the world that part of the world and you build start building relationships with your counterparts around the world because you'd have to work together on a lot of things so that Michael Flynn would have had these conversations is not breaking news is not beyond the pale it is not anything we order out of the ordinary that Michael Flynn would not have mentioned or forgotten something in an interview with the FBI is also not beyond the pale again if you go back and watch any Hillary Clinton testimony before Congress it is I don't remember those the I can't remember this but I don't not sure I'd really I don't recall and if you read her transcripts of the depositions that she's given in other cases it's full of I don't remember anything it's like does she remember running for president by that what you want to be president she's suffering from Alzheimer's she can't remember anything he has a case of C. R. S. where instead of anything you replace it with something that you might find on the New York City Subway but that this conversation with the FBI took place at right after the inauguration always seemed a little sketchy we never quite knew what the FBI was doing interviewing Michael Flynn right after inauguration and then last year this is going to be the call me caught last year James komi said in an interview with MSNBC in front of a live studio audience that he basically just sent FBI agents in to talk to Michael Flynn see if maybe they could get him to say something who knows transcendent examine an awful lot like he was to say go talk to him and see if we can get him to lie see if he says anything that's inaccurate anything we can charge him with so that we can screw him over and by proxy Donald
Ashley Feinberg: Politicians' Worst Online Nightmare
"Week? I spoke to this reporter whose articles. I've really enjoyed her. Name's Ashley Feinberg. She writes it slate and I think it's safe to say that like politicians live in a low level. Fear of her. What is your do you have a beat? I mean yes but like it's this is the part of the problem. Is that question like I? The easy answers Internet culture and politics. But it's really just sort of anything I think is like bad or funny or weird. My favorite thing about Ashley is her ability to catch politicians in what are basically they're most unguarded moments on the internet and it's not like she's using hacking tools or any kind of specialized technology to do this. She's just really good at finding embarrassing secrets that are sort of hidden in plain sight. It's it feels like kind of like a superpower to me but it does pissing people off. There's some chorus of how dare you invade this person's privacy and this journalism. This is digging through garbage law which like the Internet is garbage so like it is digging through that capacity but anything you can find out about a powerful public person should be public knowledge. Ashley's first major political catch was in two thousand seventeen when then. Fbi James Comey gave a speech where he said that he had a secret instagram account. I have an instagram account with nine followers. Nobody's getting then they're all immediate and then one daughter serious boyfriend and let him in because they're serious enough and so actually just like. Hey thanks for all the clues that might help me find your hidden account. I'M GONNA go try and find it now. Okay so the first thing she did was go on Instagram and start looking at James Comey's relatives but most of those accounts were private. And it's really hard to get any information from a private account right. Luckily for Ashley. The way that the instagram algorithm worked at that time was if you attempted to follow someone who had a private account. Instagram would be like. Hey I see that you tried to follow this person. Let me recommend to you a bunch of people that they follow God. It's like you're following like if somebody like you and your wife it'd be like you should probably follow their kids. Alright so actually. Requests to follow James Comey son and then instagram immediately recommends a bunch of other accounts mostly people with the last name. Komi but there's one account that recommends which has no profile picture. The account is locked. It has the name reinhold. Niebuhr Ashley was like. That's a weird name. And she looked it up. And apparently James Comey did his thesis on this theologian named Reinhold. Niebuhr so then she's like okay. I'm pretty sure this is James Comey but then she starts wondering like I wonder if this is using him anywhere else and then. I searched on twitter for that same name. And they're like three or four counts that use that username but only one of them. That was fading tons and tons of tweets about FBI engine coming long after she published the article. James Comey actually confirmed that the account was his which was very gratifying. For Ashley. The interesting thing and that was just the FBI Director. Tatton performed like upset well enough to cover his tracks on twitter. I mean how long did it take you a couple of days? I think it's been like four hours to like four hours to find the head of the F. B. I. S. Secret Twitter Account Going on just the follower count and who he follows that's impressive. Yeah meeting that challenge very satisfying so it was a pretty big deal when she found Komi secret accounts but the downside was like he wasn't tweeting anything. His instagram was private. But Ashley's next catch was a little more rewarding when it happened so Mitt Romney was the subject of an article by McKay coppins rates for the Atlantic. Oh actually I actually saw this actually catch. This is really good. So this catch started with this McKay coppins article that basically said like Mitt Romney is now sort of like. He's like a bit of a rebel because he stands up to the trump administration and is willing to sort of speak his mind but and I read the article. I remember and I was just like fine. Yeah Fine McKay great article but actually noticed something really valuable in that article that everybody else missed so at one point in the story Romney tells McKay coppins just as an aside. I have a secret twitter account quote. I won't give you the name of it on following six hundred sixty eight people. Why do they always do this? Swiping at his tablet he recited some of the accounts he follows including journalists late night comedians and athletes and of course to actually this is all gold is like all valuable information. Those things seem like very obvious challenges to me when I read them partially shocked. That McKay coppins wasn't basically following up with a barrage of questions to Romney about what that account was in. How what he used avoid basically so again she was like well. I'M GONNA go look through Mitt Romney's family because probably Mitt Romney's following family members on twitter and his eldest granddaughter was being followed by an account that had it followed about seven hundred people. Yeah and you may remember this. The the name was Pierre delicto. Why Pierre delectable the thing is i. it sounds very much like a Mitt. Romney would choose as a fake name and one thing bunch people said or mentioned was that when he was doing his missionary work he was in France and appeared electro just sort of like a semi French way of saying pure delight and the thing about peer. Directo is that he actually spends most of his time defending Mitt Romney like there. Was this incident where Jennifer Rubin who? Who's an opinion writer for the Washington Post criticized Romney on twitter and wrote quote inside Romney's trump's strategy his strategy is non-confrontation verging on spinelessness? Npr's elected responded Jennifer. He need to take a breath. Maybe you can then acknowledged that people who agree with you in large measure even if not in every measure. I mean. What's funny about this as even though you can tell that he's annoyed at being called spineless And even though he can say whatever he wants because it's an anonymous account he's still kind of like premium proper her cursing yeah and so actually reaches out to. Romney gets no response and so she goes to publish the article. That was a little worried about that one just because I know it seemed like I had two good luck so far that I was like sure that this one's GonNa be wrong But Yeah in pretty quickly afterwards Mckay apparently called up Romney and asked him if it was him and Romney's only comment was same wa Wa is a genuinely cool response to like. It's very depressing to come from like Mitt Romney for
Democrats raise stakes with impeachment vote
"After weeks of factfinding behind closed doors the house is gearing up to vote on the best way to present it's impeachment inquiry to the public in what will likely be act to the investigation into the president's alleged quid pro With Ukraine the gathering political storm comes amid a flurry of damning testimonies from top officials most recent leap new Tannin Colonel Alexander Finland the Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened in on the phone call between President trump and you can Ukrainian presidents and landscape and said the White House those omitted details of the calls in its transcript today to more diplomats take the stand Christopher Anderson and Catherine craft both were for trump's former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker who helped the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contact Ukrainian officials close to President's landscape now former Defense Secretary William Cohen is being closely watching these hearings member of the Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings he was one of the handful of Republicans who actually voted for President Nixon's impeachment and now he's calling for politicians on both sides of the aisle to put country before party they the current evidence and he's joining me now from Washington Secretary Cone Welcome to the program good to be with you so I ask you first and I do you think the house and the Senate are in fact going to or have they showed any evidence that they're putting country before politics I think some of them are I believe the the Democrats who are now leading in the house are trying to get at all of the facts is best they can I think they've gone about it the right way and that is to have private hearings or secret hearings in order make sure nothing is classified comes out an open testimony that's what happened during the Watergate era where the Watergate Committee had private hearings before they went public and as a result of those public hearings it certainly educated the American people in terms of what was at stake and then it came over to the House of Representatives we conducted almost all of our hearings in private and only went public when we started to debate the articles of impeachment so this kind of a hybrid here because there was no Senate Watergate Committee investigating a Watergate type committee investigating the president trump and his actions and so it's a hybrid now where the House has been required to go and dig out some of the facts before they go public and then they'll go public I assume within the next two weeks so it's very interesting who are really hammering this this fact that they have been doing their job behind closed doors because they needed to get all the relevant facts before they could go public I mean I assume you're saying that to answer the chorus of criticism from the Republicans and from members of president trump's as that this is somehow as he says it a kangaroo process with everything happening in a non-transparent way well much else what is being said its faults number one Republicans have been in the hearings behind closed doors and the spectacle that we saw last week with I'm forty or fifty Republicans storming the intelligence committee room was just that it was a spectacle because many of those who were storming the who was actually had seats on the inside and could have sat there if they hadn't at any time during the course of all of these hearings so I think it was more for a show that had little to do with the facts and the facts were being gathered by Republicans behind closed doors as well as the Democratic majority and so now will go public and I think it's really important it's not enough to have Robert Muller just read from his testimony what he had gathered as his his finding Wchs it's really important that those who have key information go before the American people be subjected to a critical examination in cross examination so the American public can understand what's at stake and what's at stake is the rule of law and whether or not the president has breached that rule whether or not he has engaged in conduct which in my opinion on its face is impeachable namely to call upon a foreign government a to dig up critical information or dirt on a potential of campaign competitor in the following in next year's race yeah I think that is something which on the face of it would be an impeachable offense I'm let me ask you you mentioned the rule of law that's obviously the fundamental principle of one of the main principles the United States and the democracy that are you concerned that the rule of law itself is under threat and are you concerned that the from the consistent attack on institutions in the United States is having an impact on the democratic process I am during the time of Harry Truman Indianapolis and others it was called you know watching the president that the beginning I think we're present at the end of that process they were present at the beginning of setting up these institutions in the United States and elsewhere which helped to maintain for the most part peace and stability for the past seven years I believe the president trump is in the process of knocking down those pillars and so he feels that he doesn't need any of these other institutional guards such to make that he feels that he alone own can take action without regard to any of the other institutions which are there to make sure that the rule of law stays intact and so that only I can do that assume that has the sound of a dictator or dictatorship where only I can solve this problem I don't need you for consultation I know more than the generals I know more than the ambassadors and I alone can take this action without regard to you congress I don't need you know have to come you and therefore it becomes one man rule now if the president can do that in his first term what we would we expect if he has second term and which has no need to go before the electorate again there's no need to go to Congress to say I'm sorry I broke this rule they'll be no rules that will go on broken in my opinion because he feels that he is above the law that he is the face of the law that he is the face of the Justice Department et Cetera. So I worry about the future as much as I worry about the present in terms of what is happening I want the president to abide by the rule of law and I want Republicans to say Mr President when you step over this line you have to be held accountable you cannot go to a foreign government and ask for assistance against dirt on your future opponent that crosses the line which should not be crossed now whether the majority in the Senate supermajority in the Senate two thirds of the Senate will vote for removal I think at this point is rather doubtful but in any event even if doubtful it is important for the American people to listen to the facts to say you may think it's okay for this president but do you want to set the standard and lower the standards for every other president in the future because what is good for president trump will be good for them and I've always believed I want to look up to the president I want to see the president as a shining example of what the rule of law supposed to look like in America and why we treasure that rule of law because if you don't have the rule of law you have the law of rules and that's something the president seems really more akin to he likes President Putin he likes Kim Jong Hoon he likes presentation paying he likes spreading the Erawan he doesn't much like our allies in terms of paying the same kind of tribute to them that he does to those who the kind of one man rule I mean you've just laid out a pretty alarming scenario I mean if I had to sum it up you pretty much saying that potential elite the United States is is on route to anti democracy I mean almost tyranny you've just said and from from somebody like yourself who's a pretty moderate Republican who served a Democratic president you're not a flame thrower it's pretty alarming I wonder whether former colleagues or current members of Congress whether the House or the Senate listening and you of course signed a letter with with forty four other four most Republicans and others about this issue and yet the Boston Globe has said where are you all where are you all where all the Republican senators or Congress people who who actually did what they had to do according to the rule of law during the Watergate era Where are you all apart from US speaking out like this well many of the Republican Senators with whom I served L. exactly as I do they are worried about where the country is heading I would ask everyone to go back and read Orwell's nineteen eighty-four and look what he was writing about a fictional sense and saying is that where we're headed where you have a Ministry of truth in which you can tell the biggest is and you repeat them over and over again until they're accepted as the truth so you have a situation where the words like a war really means peace or ignorance really means wisdom or slavery is equal to freedom and two plus two week was five when you that's pretty fictional but it's not too for removed when you can have the president of the United States I yeah I wrote this letter and it's a perfect letter and I would say perfectly corrupt in the sense that you're trying to dig up dirt through a country that has beholden to us for its security in order to get that security delivered to them but only if you give this information on Joe Biden and his family and so you keep repeating it's perfect it's perfect perfect and people soon we'll say yeah it is perfect so that's why it's important to have these public hearing so you can have a ambassador Bill Taylor about Yvonne show you can have a lieutenant colonel come forward and say here is what I heard this is why alarmed me and this is why every American and should be alarmed about this because this is not what we do this is not how we act we don't ask we don't ask Russia Russia if you're listening come on in so you can we're open for business that's not something that we can accept which should not accept into the extensive the American people feel it's okay then I think we're headed down they very dangerous past one that every American should be concerned about so let me ask you about the American people because clearly the idea of an impeachment is a very I soon traumatic one for the nation they've been through it once or twice before it's rabbit it's happened and it is traumatic and people I will also say as president trump's allies of said that it's simply an attempt to rob an elected leader of his position do you are you concerned given what we're seeing in polls right now that this could be even more divisive even more traumatic than than than the all of law being upheld well we had the same arguments he met made back during Watergate there were people in the street we had bomb threats at our hearings I had to get special protection for my family as well and the argument was this will tear the country apart and my argument at that point was no it won't tear the country apart there'll be a vice president who will take office of removing the head for head of state for actions that are antithetical to what we believe in will not result and tearing the country apart we'll we'll tear the country apart is if we watched the slow the unraveling of the rule of law in the name of the power of the president and when you confuse the office of the president with the Individual President and His undoing becomes our undoing I tried to make that very clear I believe it's still obtains The president is there a temporary occupant we have our allegiance to who is the office of the President and to the The constitution into the country and so I know the president trump was trying to get members of like Mr Komi the actress FBI? I want you to pledge loyalty to me yes there was no MR president. I don't pledge my loyalty to you I pledge my loyalty to the Constitution. that's something that has been going on now insisting upon loyalty to the person and it has to be loyalty to the office of the president why do you think then sorry to interrupt you but why think then so many Republicans are in fact not doing what you're saying in other words they are pledging their loyalty to him rather than do the pro the the

Sarah on I want wants to be the voices of every single kid around the glove because we think the reason for time and maybe they can use them in our voices because we are the kids who are here but they have the power and only idols have their responsibility to lease them so you're going to be presenting something called the children's convention. Tell me a bit more about Sarah so the UNC are about the rights of the child. It's right to survive up with action development and practice invasion. The document does not end there. It also talks about the responsibilities of the bridge Sun's around. The child may be her family the government the school and the stakeholders. It's not really something you were. We just made it more child friendly so that children would understand it more because the original you know you.

Watchdog: Comey violated FBI policies in handling of memos
"The justice department's watchdog says former f._b._i. Director james comey violated department policies over his handling of official memo's off correspondent. Linda kenyon has the latest in his report. The inspector general rights we conclude that khamis retention handling and dissemination of certain memos violated department the f._b._i. Policies and his f. b. i. employment agreement at the same time the i g said commes conduct did not merit prosecution and no information shared shared by him or his attorneys was classified at issue was a series of memos. Komi wrote about conversations with president trump that he said unnerved him. One memo detailed how all the president had asked komi to let go of the investigation into michael flynn trump's one time national security advisor the president's later decision to fire comey in may of of two thousand seventeen as the f._b._i. Was investigating russian election interference sugar questions about whether the president was trying to obstruct justice and so i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons by asked him to because i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel commies hope was is realized weeks later when the justice department did appoint special counsel robert muller in an interview in april of last year republican senator tom cotton said would call me did did was wrong. I think that's unfortunate. Behavior on director comey is part and republican senator. Mike lee agreed leaking. The memo's was bad form. That doesn't seem to me to be the kind of the thing. We want out of an f._b._i. Director and f._b._i. Director whose example will affect everyone else in a department in a bureau where leaking seems to be a problem this week's release the inspector general's report prompted president trump did tweet perhaps never in the history of our country. Has someone been more thoroughly disgraced an excoriated than james komi in the just released inspector general's report. He should be ashamed of himself. Call me fired back noting that the investigation found no evidence that he or his attorney shared classified what information with the news media and accusing his critics of defaming him he tweeted. I don't need a public apology from those who defamed me but a quick message with a sorry we lied about how you would be nice and to all those who spent two years talking about me going to jail or being a liar and a leaker. Ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long including the president
"komi " Discussed on The Dan Bongino Show
"Reasons. I just want to be clear so on when tweets nasty grams to him. He's just giving you the government's logic behind not doing it to D._O._J.. We clear on that so here the tweets he says one of the Reasons D._O._J.. Basically didn't prosecute Komi. Komi also didn't leak certain contents jove's some of the memos that remain secret to this day. I whether Flynn was under FIS trump's calls with Putin etc atra. These are still redacted by the F._B._i.. We don't know their content to a judge jury. This would show that Komi was being somewhat selective about what he leaked. You track that at ten four folks you track where undercover Uber's going yeah. We're good certain portions of the memos comey did not leak he kept some of them redacted and they're still redacted active to this day so even some information that was later classified was leaked. Some of it was kept out combing court will be like hey look. We were being careful tweet number or two about why they didn't prosecute also the classified memo was retrospectively classified by the F._B._i.. After Komi had already leaked it his defense here here would be that he didn't know it was classified at the time Komi can also say he classified memos at secret level and didn't leak them so in other words <music> some information that was leaked to the media through commes friend was only classified later by the way I've read his tweets verbatim for those you guests who may criticize the language of it those tweets fair enough good at it now again. Huber's thinks that they should have won four hundred showed a why now folks. There's the again again. I'm giving you the data and one of the reasons why Bars D._O._J.. Said this is not an airtight case. We shouldn't go forward folks. I entirely disagree. I've done these cases. I've worked these cases cases. I'll tell you about a case we work. They're not gonNA give you all the details a bore you to death but we had a guy involved in a major international credit card fraud scheme hundreds of millions of dollars. The guy was a bit player. He was a bit player but he had unquestionably committed crimes. We had him on tape. It was we had him nailed to the wall. Ladies and gentlemen the Dude wouldn't talk he wouldn't talk. So what did we have next week next week. We had video that appeared of his daughter same same credit card for on videotape there it was the guy was a bit daughter wasn't even bigger bid player. There's no question in my mind. She committed in a crime. Though was the case airtight. No was probable cause there for an arrest undoubtedly one hundred percent but we do when out picked up the daughter why all of a sudden dad wanted to talk here. We go air. We always right. You don't WanNa do the time don't do the crime. It's not my fault. You got your daughter involved. All of a sudden we started getting information about the bigger fish and a bigger fish and the bigger fish. The case may not be airtight against Komi. My point here folks. Is You get the bracelets on them. The a probable cause for the arrest. was there get him in the system. Get him talking. Get Him softened up. Make him go hire a lawyer <hes>. Where does that strategy sound familiar? Oh you're Joe. When did this happen to my Michael Cohen Paul Manafort George Popadopoulos and just about anyone else that trump touched the trump orbit?

Democrats Stuck After Mueller Testimony
"Democrats are sort of stuck between Iraq and a heart place. You spend two years telling your voters. The president trump will be ridden outta town on a rail because muller you're more shows up and it turns out that he is not solid it turns out that he is wavering it turns out that he doesn't know his own report. A Demo Republicans were basically able to establish that he was not familiar with his own stuff which means that it kind of felt like this was politically motivated and we're about have to find out in the next month whether this investigation was properly initiated and conducted Inspector General of the D._O._J.. Michael Horowitz is about to bring out a report about the beginnings of the trump Russia investigation. I'm sure that will be fascinating. Stuff is reported certainly on the Hillary investigation and was fascinating reading and pretty damning for a lot of the folks involved in all of this well Democrats are not going to let go of this and that includes the people who are most closely tied to it so Andrew McCabe who was fired from the F._B._i.. For lying to the F._B._I.. He lost his pension over it and that was because he lied to the F._B._i.. About whether he had spoken to the press with the permission of James Komi About Hillary Clinton's investigation well now Andrew McCabe is back on television suggesting it's time for Congress to pursue impeachment based on what he really can't explain not based on anything Muller said that we didn't already know for sure from my own experience at the very beginnings of this investigation we confronted some very hard choices choices that we knew would have negative repercussions on our organization on US personally and we made those choices anyway because it was our job and our duty to do so <hes> I feel strongly that that's the same position Congress's in now and they should step up to the plate and do their job. It doesn't mean that the president will be removed from office or should be removed for off from office or we'll be impeached but it is absolutely clear to me that the time has come for Congress to pursue a dedicated impeachment inquiry. This is becoming a talking point. People who are very invested in this thing are not going to let it go. It's good for trump because he can point to them. You can say listen you petty jerks. There's a full investigation. There is no recommendation of Prosecution Muller himself would not even answer whether he would prosecute me. Why in the world are we still still doing this routine? If you don't like me so much you can beat me at the ballot box by the way trump is beatable if we're all the talk about the Democrats being cast which is true right now. Trump is underwater in Ohio by four percentage points according to variables including morning consoles. He's he's underwater in Iowa now. He could still win those states. He's expected to win those states in fact against Democrat those just as popularity ratings still trump is vulnerable and yet democrats don't seem to want to run against trump. They seem to want to impeach him or at least talk about impeaching him for the purposes of smearing him as a Russian catspaw. Even though that all fell apart the other folks who were invested in this members of the media deeply invested C._N._n.. Everyday Breaking News Wolf Blitzer. We have a brand new piece of news. I work out every day and unfortunately the gym that I attend very often as C._N._N.. On and so I'm well aware of the chirons that C._N._N.. Runs every single day and the chirons for two years were about breaking news bombshell report trump's presidency over the Russia scandal explodes and then it turns out that the thing is a complete waste of time pretty much and C._N._N.. Ain't GonNa let that go because it makes them. Look bad so here on C._N._N..

Well, these are liars, these are discredited liar, propagandists, who are doing very dangerous things Chatham shift just told a lie. So obvious to anybody that you can watch go to the YouTube dot com slash Bongino. Just watch it because on video, it's even more power. Oh, yeah. Adam schiff. Yes, we Jim Komi did tell us, he briefed us d just studied in brief you why is he trying to cause Adam Schiff wants to provide cover for Komi Komi, who's a discredited completely discredited anti-trump hack now taking pictures of himself in the forest? Look at the trees, look at the sky, look at the ocean. I don't know what's going on with Jim combing. I seriously, there's someone needs to stage intervention, but Adam Schiff understand what he's doing. People hate the idea that the government keeps secrets in order to attack political opponents. They hate it. That's what Komi did. He did not brief congress about the existence of the Trump investigation, because it was a farce and he had a hide it for eight months, hoping some negative information about Trump turned up so we could justify it when it didn't. He was forced eight months later to brief congress forest he had to because he couldn't hide it any longer. Shift knows that looks really bad. So he just blatantly lies to congresswoman Stefanik no-no. He briefed us and she seems Joji face. She seemed so genuinely astonished psych even for spray, right? Yeah. For sleazy. Adam shifts. He's looking around like you can't be serious. It's worth it. Just a record. Yeah. It is. It is worth. It is just to play the video of her face. She seems genuinely astonished that even the sleaziest of sleaze balls. Adam Schiff would lie about something so easily. Refutable. Yeah. That's who they are folks. It's always been who they are. Okay. I'm moving on just a quick story. I picked up in the daily signal being the show notes today. It's rather good. One courage, you to check it out defeats the entire Bernie Sanders, socialist narrative that we should be moving towards more single payer healthcare direction. Because in fact, single payer healthcare is how Scandinavians and the Europeans do it. And it's just so successful. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that is not. In fact, what's happening is the daily signal reports today, actually Scandinavian countries in Nordic countries are moving towards private healthcare by Kevin fam- in his daily signal. Read the article, it's short. But here's an interesting little piece from this daily signal about how Scandinavian countries that private free market health care is growing not shrinking. I don't understand how is that if we're trying to emulate, this model right about how wonderful government control? The healthcare is, then why is it that countries over there Nordic countries are expanding? Their free market healthcare presence. The answer is. Because they're government run systems are failing from the peace between two thousand six in two thousand sixteen the portion of the population covered by private insurance increased by four percent, Sweden, seven percent, Norway, and twenty two percent Denmark than what I thought these were examples of free market. Excuse me, socialists, healthcare, utopia, if that's the case, ladies and gentlemen. Why are these countries that are already paying ridiculous tax burdens up, which a fifty percent of their income, the citizens of, of Denmark Norway Sweden at pay? Absurd tax burdens. Why are they paying for a product twice? If the government run healthcare is so great stew on that for a minute..

All these guys know they had their thumb on the scales, and they don't like the president, and they were acting out of political bias. They all know that. But they're trying to hide behind this balls and strikes thing. And the only way Muller can do that because he knows combs made a fool out of himself with. Stupid tweets in his interviews and his books and everything else he can't hide anymore. Komi is obviously a bad player Muller still thinks he can hide behind his own Elsie nonsense. But that's why I think he wants to go away and hide and hope he can hide behind the straight shooter thing. But he can't. One other thing, the oil, see, you mean Tacoma, the start this investigation two and a half years later. How many millions of dollars knowing that you can't? And sitting president.

And this is what we get Nowy at the beginning, you couldn't even get out of the gate with this. It's, it's so idiot. That's why I can't even believe that Muller who's an intelligent guy. I can't believe he thinks we're going to buy it. Now, the media, if you turn on MSNBC you turn on CNN you listen to the mainstream media, they're all buying it, because they have to because since they were all in on this, the media the Washington Post, the, the New York Times all these left-wing cable news shows. They were all in on this nonsense and Muller wants to just throw it out there. It's embarrassing, it's embarrassing for him to think Tom shillue is going to buy that nonsense. And I'm not going to buy it. It's embarrassing for anyone who does by it, but they're going to try to buy it because bar is about to come out and show that this whole thing was phony from the beginning and they want to hide behind.

Unless today's negotiating in Washington with representatives from Beijing. There's fruit earlier today. President Trump seemingly walked back a weekend tweet that Robert Muller should not testify before congress on his report. Now, he said again that he would leave it up to attorney general William bar at a CNN townhall tonight. Former FBI director James Comey said he thinks that Muller should come forward. Oh, yeah. Of course. And explain his thinking a lot of these areas. Meanwhile, the president was caught off guard that the Republican controlled Senate intelligence committee would subpoena his son Donald junior. New testimony connected to the Russia probe frankly for my son after being exonerated to. Now. Get a subpoena to going again and speak again after close to twenty hours. Of telling everybody that would listen about a nothing meeting. Yeah. I'm pretty surprised the alleged shooter in last month's deadly attack inside a San Diego area synagogue will face simultaneous state and federal trials nineteen year old John Ernest already facing the possible death penalty on state charges of murder and attempted murder.

Rosenstein suggests standing with Barr on Mueller report is his job
"Congress will in fact testimony this coming week from Trump's handpicked attorney general William Barr who has come under fire for his handling of Muller's findings the judiciary committee's from both chambers will question bar about the report Wednesday and Thursday of next week. And that brings us to the deputy attorney general that bar inherited the man who gave us the Muller investigation one rod Rosenstein and the questions about him tonight. Like how? Savvy. An inside player is he really this career federal prosecutor Harvard law graduate is first internship was for Massachusetts US attorney named Robert Muller. This man who the president has privately derided as mister peepers has he been privately currying the favor of the president all along to keep his job. Here is what raises all these questions tonight, the Washington Post late today detailed that Rosenstein, reportedly told Trump something certain in order to remain in charge of the investigation. The post focuses on the fallout in the wake of this explosive article from the New York Times, you'll recall it September twenty eighteen we reported on that widely at the time it said that after the 2017 firing of James Komi Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire to secretly record the president. And he talked about the twenty fifth amendment. The post now says after that Rosenstein was called on the carpet, and he was forced to explain himself to a furious White House and was reportedly teary-eyed in a meeting with then chief of staff John Kelly on a subsequent phone call with Trump he sought to quote assure the president he was on his team. And that he would make sure Trump was treated fairly quote. I give the investigation credibility Rosenstein said in the words of one administration official offering their own characterization of the call. I can land the plane that made us stop. And remember where we last heard that phrase? Landing the plane right now, and I've been willing to discuss my my my letters and the process going forward, and I'm just not going to get into the details of the process until the planes on the ground. Now back to the Justice department, which will admit can sound at times more like an airport quoting again from the Washington Post on multiple occasions, Rosenstein, told Trump he was not a target of Muller's investigation. That's important because we know that hearing that was critical to this president

And here's why that is a huge problem because the states are in charge of these elections, not the federal government. It's state law that operates in these precincts state law. It's state law that operates at the ballot box and the states had no time to prepare to deal with it. Because Obama held back. There's no curiosity in the media whatsoever. They don't wanna talk to Obama. There's biding they're going on and on. They don't wanna talk to him. There's a Hillary Clinton ghost writing her own op-ed piece. Nobody wants to ask them. What did you do? What did you do to protect us from the Russians? What did you do when you found out about interference? We know it Susan, right?

The Mueller Report: Where do we go from here?
"The white has fully cooperated with a special counsel's investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign in White House documents directing senior aides to testify freely and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the president took no act that in fact, deprive the special counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation, again attorney general William bar today here to talk more about the release of the Muller report is California Democratic congressman Ted lieu and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, Barbara. So I improved and let's start with attorney general bars press conference because I'm I'm betting you haven't combed through all four hundred forty eight pages of the report quite yet. Bill bars press conference was completely inappropriate. And he made a number of statements that when this leading the president effect did not cooperate heat. Did not agree to a sit down interview. He did not do follow up questions. So I don't know what Bill talking about when he said that the White House cooperated fully did not. And as far as what was inappropriate in your view. If you look at especially volume two of the report, Donald Sean Justice. If you read the instances look at the ashes, you talk they beat the elements of the statute in the law itself is very broad. You don't actually have to if at obstruct Justice. You just have to endeavor to obstruct Justice in Donald Trump's certainly did that let's talk about the reductions was there more or less material off-limits than you expect it it's our understanding that congress may be getting a report with less reductions, I'm not in. Hurry, clear on that. But we need to get the full report with no redemptions. That's what happened with the Ken store report. That's what happened in Watergate. And we are entitled to the full report without any redemptions. Well, House Judiciary chair Jerry Nadler's calling for Robert Mueller to come and testify before congress. So. What would that bring to light in in your view that the report hasn't? Well, first of all Bill testify before House Judiciary committee, a may second. And we would like to hear from Robert Mueller himself. We know that there are a lot of issues in this report regarding social Justice and intent we want to understand how he came to view of social Justice in terms of whether he indict the president because if you read this report, it looks like he came to allow us conclusions based on his view that he was not allowed to indict the sitting president. So and after that what he want to see happen. Basically Robert Mueller in volume of the report gave a roadmap to the House Judiciary committee to investigate Justice to locate. At least those ten instances to see if the president committed social Justice and investigation to exonerate Donald Trump or not, and then we're going to have a conversation with the American people how to proceed do you have any words today to the American people who who are? Reading this report. They're trying to parse the legal language. Sure. The Mola report absolutely, positively does not exonerate Donald Trump. That. That's it. It is a very large report. Oh. I I'm now going to go through what have you done to any of it yet? Yes. I I look through volume two, which is really the province of the House Judiciary committee because it deals with social Justice issues volume one dealing with Russia collusion. That's the province of their house intelligence committee. Okay. Well, thank you so much for this. I really appreciate you taking the time on this day. Sure. Anytime congressman Ted lieu, thanks so much again. Thank you. Now for a Republican perspective. Sean steel is a California national committee member for the Republican National Committee, and thank you so much for coming on the show. Thanks. It's fun. So what are your thoughts on congressman Ted lieu is response to the findings in the report? Definitely not a lot. Sad alcoholic. He's got a problem. Something about collusion. Still after and beaten to death by thirteen militant investigators by by by thirty million dollars and at the end of the two year process, no collusion whatsoever. Even some of the Democrats regaining realize that it made it a lot of Americans. It's such a hoax. It's so phony and Trump enjoys complete vindication across the board it, and so this is something that the Democrats still wanna litigate you thousand sixty losing ticket electing Trump right right in front of us. And I appreciate that. We have to acknowledge William bars facing charges of partisanship. And acting as the defence counsel for the president rather than as an impartial attorney general for the country. Nobody buys that. You know, he's he's he's offering or information is it wise special counsel. And he's got a color coded redaction based on laws at congress made. It's funny, but you got trumpeters irrational. And now they're trying to put all their. Attacks against against alerts going to wash it. Kind of kind of the joke of the week and you'll be a long forgotten person. And in. There is a little hard to hear you. Have you read the report yet? Oh, that's good. Ask you about the ten scenarios in this report. Whether they raise any concerns for you concerning possible, obstruction, no smoking, no smoking guns. We've heard the attorney general twice we've seen December. We seen the reactions to that. We heard people that have been studying this for intentionally but. Here at Ted lieu hit about collusion anymore. That was of course, the greatest joke of all time was real collusion between Hillary Clinton's campaign and Russian Steele dossier, and that's not going to be litigated in this conversation again, but I'd like for your last. What are you? What's your reaction to the question of whether Robert Mueller should testify before congress? Perfectly fine. I I don't think the Democrats will ever be satisfied keep going after that registering. But here's the good news. Hunters are now to be hunted and the attorney general at the the investigative general inspector general Maura which is gonna release report showing that James Komi members of the CIA top echelon, especially top FBI levels, Joseph deeply corrupted and doing having a deal bomb administration spy on literally better being used.

"The F B I. Yes, the FBI taking the government of America into its own hands. While the New York Times cheers them on here is the story. And again, remember these are sources from the FBI in from the Democrats feeding stuff to the New York Times. Why why are they doing it? So that the New York Times can spin it to sound like it wasn't what it was a deep state coup essentially FBI opened inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. I mean, this is the kind of nonsense, but here it is in the days after President Trump fired James Comey, FBI director law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president's behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests. According to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation. So first of all, let's think about this for minute. He fired this guy who's now been. Shown to be dishonest and incompetent illegal of material to get he leaked to a friend through a friend of his at Columbia in order to get a special counsel appointed which worked he he's he bobbled the Hillary Clinton investigation both by covering up for her by excusing her when he had no business excusing her or not he just was supposed to make a recommendation to the sinister the quietly sinister attorney general at the time. And instead he goes on TV, and then the Hillary Clinton people hated him because he came back and said, we were reopening this investigation and she thinks that's one of the many millions of excuses. She has for having lost the election. So the FBI decided that his behavior in firing James Komi right in firing James Komi needed to be looked into. Okay. Let's let's go back to the New York Times. The inquiry carried explosive implications counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president's own actions constituted a. Possible threat to national security agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly Working Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow's influence the investigation the FBI opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known whether of his firing of Mr. Komi constituted, obstruction of Justice. Okay. Again, we have to pause and think about this from an at first of all they're two kinds of investigations the FBI does they do counterintelligence investigations, which are not necessarily criminal. You don't need proof of a crime, but need criminal investigation. After the reason to suspect a crime has been committed. They did not start a criminal investigation that they keep throwing this out there that there were looking into whether he obstructed Justice. Here's the definition of obstructive, obstruction of Justice, obstruction of Justice enact, the corruptly or by threats or force or by any threatening letter or communication influences obstructs or impedes endeavors to influence obstruct or impede the due administration of Justice. So. So in other words, you you can't just obstruct Justice by doing something legal. You have to be committing a crime in the obstruction of Justice. So for instance, if I take the fifth amendment they are asking me questions about a crime. They think I committed I plead the fifth because I don't want to incriminate myself. You can't then accuse me of obstructing Justice by pleading the fifth because I'm not doing anything illegal after threaten people. I have to do something use force do something corrupt. That's what it says. In the statute, Trump fired a guy who served at his pleasure James Comey served at his pleasure. He had not only the obsolete right to fire him. His there was there was nothing to stand in his way. He could fired him because he didn't like his tie. You're wearing a blue tie in a red tie administration. You're outta here. Call me nothing. They could do about it. So there is no criminal investigation at asked to be illegal. Okay. Back to the cover up. I mean, the explosive Bon shell report from the New York Times if the president had fired Mr. Komi to stop the Russian vestich in the action would have been a national security issue because it naturally. Avert the bureau's effort to learn how Moscow interfered in the two thousand sixteen election, and whether any Americans were involved, according to James a Baker who served as FBI general counsel until late twenty seventeen. He privately testified in October before house investigators who examined the FBI handling of the full Russia inquiry, and you'll notice that they have the transcript this was under this was a closed door testimony..

"Dow, here's the man who's been recognized is best the recipient of not one but two Christie just Marconi awards for his broadcast excellence, the one and only Bill. Billy Cunningham, the great American. Thanks for listening. This Sunday nights so much stuff going on. And of course, the big news came out Friday night New York Times headline screams FBI opening query into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. And for my way of thinking when you have unelected bureaucrats and the FBI are unhappy with the election since about ninety seven percent and the FBI the department of Justice voted for and supported Hillary Clinton. It is sick think about this a group of unelected bureaucrats sat in a room immediately after the election near the inaugural and decided that they would investigate the new president of the United States for treason. I said treason, the department of Justice ninety seven percent of their presidential campaign contributions went to Hillary Clinton. And so they were extremely unhappy with the choices of the American people that you and. And I made and so the bureaucrats the deep state at the FBI and the department of Justice the rod Rosenstein types wanted to overturn the twenty sixteen election, and they started very early. They started before that the only party that messed up the two thousand sixteen election with the Democrats. They're the ones that funded the dossier the served as the basis for the affidavit he gets a search warrant the only politicians never eavesdropping or anyone was members of the Obama administration that eavesdropped on the Trump campaign, the Trump transition and the Trump administration, they were all Democrats. They wanted to make invalid the election and they worked hard to get it done. And so this headline on Friday night and the New York Times, quote FBI opened inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia tells us only one thing how sick the Washington establishment is was and always will be. It's the way things are. And so when Komi was fired, which by the way, the Democrats what if fired Komi Komi is a liar Komi is a leaker the Democrats were going to fire him because of what they perceived. He did there Hillary Clinton eleven days before the election. So Komi was gone. No matter who got elected Komi was gone, but McCabe and stroke and page were close friends with James Komi James Comey promoted, McCabe, stroke and page to their current positions. So when Komi was fired for misconduct at office has found by the inspector general at the FBI. The I g said that Komi grossly step beyond his bounds. And Komi was responsible for horrible negligent nefarious behavior that comes from the FBI itself. So all Trump did as what the Republicans wanted to do what the Democrats wanted to do with Komi and what the inspector general of B. I wanted to be done which is far James Comey and admit it liar and a Laker. So when that happened, McCabe stroke and page thought amongst themselves. This is a perfect situation now to open up a counter intelligence operation, but see by that point by April and may of two thousand seventeen they've been out for about nine months. They had the wiretaps of the Trump campaign, the Trump transition and the Trump administration, and so when I go back in time. I want to share with you some of the emails in Texas between two star crossed lovers. Peter stroke and Lisa page, top FBI counter intelligence official expressed concern that quote, there was no big big there in the Trump collusion campaign or the investigation. Peter Struck said in a text message to Lisa page on may eighteenth 2017, quote, you, and I both know the odds are nothing if I thought it was likely I be there. No question. I have stayed in part because my my gut sense in concern. There's no big they're they're quote unquote in reference to the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia. So early on Lisa page and Peter Struck texted back and forth that there's no there there this morning. I'm watching ABC with George Stephanopoulos. I've appeared several times and ABC news. Chief correspondent Jonathan Karl said this morning that those are hoping for a bombshell and special counsel Muller's. Russia investigation are likely to be disappointed. According to his sources, he said, quote, what I'm getting is that this is all building up to the Muller report and raising expectations of a bombshell. And there have been expert expectations that have been building, of course for over a year on this. But people who are closest to Muller has been doing interacting with a special counsel caution me that this report is almost certain to be anticlimactic, unquote. So how's it possible? Then that the F that the New York Times can read a headline on Friday and their addition Saturday and Sunday today and yesterday, quote FBI opened inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. When New York Times reported nothing new in fact. It is so bad. That the author of this article gave an interview his name is Adam Goldman. He's the chief author of the article that appeared Friday night. He said there's no indication in the article that the FBI obtained a new piece of evidence linking Trump directly to Russia and times reporter, Adam Goldman said in an interview published on Saturday that his sources were quick to caution that the counterintelligence investigation was in there weather. Trump was wittingly or unwittingly acting in the interest of Russia quote from Adam Goldman, quote, people were very careful to me that it's wittingly or unwittingly. We are not here to say that Trump is an agent of a foreign power, quote, unquote. So what is the story then the author of the article said? We're not here to say that Trump is an agent of a foreign power. The molar investigation has not shown evidence of collusion. Otherwise, it would have been leaked those who know everything about it. Peter stroke and Lisa page, texted back and forth. There's no there there. So what are we talking about? What's the big deal? NBC MSNBC. And CNN headed complete meltdown. And these are the same leaders of the department of Justice all promoted by Barack Hussein Obama who wanted to clearly repudiate the message the election. The verdict of the American people. These are the same members of the department of Justice who found no corruption would fast and furious found no corruption with Lois Lerner found no corruption when President Bill Clinton received millions of dollars from Russians while his wife was secretary of state who minimalized the investigation of the Clinton Email internet scandal and ignore the sleaze in the Clinton foundation, the same individuals or now telling us directly and indirectly. There was no collusion. It didn't happen. It was ally. Yet, the New York Times one after the president again, and again, and again and one last thought we have thousands on hold. Millions are listening. You might recall. The John doubt who was the president's attorney issued a statement on Saturday yesterday and said the following, quote, this is the president's attorney who knows where the bodies are buried knows everything about the Imola investigation from the president's perspective quote. The New York Times story is an unwitting disclosure and verification of the outer corruption of their oaths by fired FBI director James Comey and his colleagues to undermine the free election of president Donald J Trump it was apparently done under the supervision of rod Rosenstein who was reportedly ready to wear a wire to and snare the president. This is the stuff of banana republics and dictatorships this despicable unlawful official misconduct. Undermines our entire federal criminal Justice system, which protects our liberty is to free people, unquote. This was a rogue investigation that mutated into Robert Muller's investigation. That's ruined many lives kept Americans in solitary confinement. Cores confessions through threats of life, destroying and financially bankrupting prosecutions, and now we're left the report supposedly is going to be issued in February. And according to Jonathan Karl of ABC news his sources in the molar investigation. Leaking to him tell him to say there's no there there. So what in the hell was this all about the past forty eight hours? It's all about a template of chaos created by the mainstream media by the Democrats to make Trump unelectable and twenty twenty and take power away from him and undermine him while conducting the fight over the border wall. If Trump collapses on the border wall, if there's not a shovel in the dirt, this will be similar to Bush. Forty one read my lips. No new taxes. Trump has got to remain firm. Put it all together. Don't know yet. The Muller reports coming out allegedly in February. There's no there there, according to Andrew McCabe Peter Struck Lisa page, and Jonathan Karl and the liar and the leaker James Comey, by the way, whoever leaked to the New York Times and Adam Goldman and Michael Schmidt. This story from the molar investigation is committing a felony. Does anyone care about the felonies committed by the Muller investigation themselves by the Democrats ninety five percent of the lawyers and the Mueller investigation are card-carrying members of the Democratic Party? So this is a cabal to bring down the president or undermined his policies because the Democratic Party and that the academics and the big city newspapers and the walls.

"The recipient of not one but two GIS Marconi awards for his broadcast excellence. The one and only Bill Cunningham, Billy Cunningham, the great American. Thanks for listening. This Sunday nights. So much stuff going on. Of course, the big news came out Friday night, New York Times headline screams FBI opening quarry winter weather. Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. And for my way of thinking when you have unelected bureaucrats and the FBI now they're unhappy with the election since about ninety seven percent and the FBI and the department of Justice voted for and supported Hillary Clinton. It is sick think about this a group of unelected bureaucrats sat in a room immediately after the election near the inaugural and decided that they would investigate the new president of the United States for treason. I said treason. The department of Justice ninety seven percent of their presidential campaign contributions went to Hillary Clinton. And so they were extremely unhappy. With the choices that the American people that you and I made and so the bureaucrats the deep state at the FBI and the department of Justice the rod Rosenstein types wanted to overturn the twenty sixteen election, and they started very early. They started before that the only party that messed up the two thousand sixteen election with the Democrats. They're the ones that funded the dossier the served as the basis for the affidavit against the search warrant, the only politicians never eavesdropping or anyone was members of the Obama administration that eavesdropped on the Trump campaign, the Trump transition and the Trump administration, they were all Democrats. They wanted to make invalid the election and they worked hard to get it done. And so this headline on Friday night and the New York Times, quote FBI opened inquiry. The Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia tells us only one thing how sick the Washington establishment is was and always will be. It's the way things are. And so when Komi was fired, which by the way, the Democrats what if fired Komi Komi is a liar Komi is a leaker the Democrats were gonna fire him because of what they perceived he did their Hillary Clinton eleven days before the election. So Komi was gone. No matter who got elected Komi was gone, but McCabe and stroke and page were close friends with James Comey James Comey promoted, McCabe, stroke and page to their current positions. So when Komi was fired for misconduct in office has found by the inspector general of the FBI. The I g said back Komi grossly step beyond his bounds. And Komi was responsible for horrible negligent nefarious. Behavior that comes from the FBI itself. So all Trump did is what the Republicans wanted to do what the Democrats wanted to do. And what the inspector general of the FBI want wanted to be done, which is far James Comey and admit it liar and a Laker. So when that happened, McCabe stroke and page thought amongst themselves. This is a perfect situation now to open up a counter intelligence operation, but see by that point by April and may of two thousand seventeen they've been out for about nine months. They had the wiretaps of the Trump campaign, the Trump transition and the Trump administration, and so when I go back in time. I want to share with you some of the emails in Texas between two star crossed lovers. Peter stroke and Lisa page, top FBI counter intelligence official expressed concern that quote, there was no big big there and the Trump collusion campaign or the investigation. Peter Struck said in a text message to Lisa page on may eighteenth 2017, quote, you, and I both know the odds are nothing if I thought it was likely I'd be there. No question. I hesitate in part because my my gut sense and concern there's no big they're they're quote unquote and reference to the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia. So early on Lisa page and Peter Struck texted back and forth that there's no there there this morning. I'm watching ABC. With George Stephanopoulos. I've appeared several times. And ABC news chief correspondent Jonathan Karl said this morning that those are hoping for a bombshell in special counsel Muller's. Russia investigation are likely to be disappointed. According to his sources, he said, quote, what I'm getting is that this is all building up to the Muller report and raising expectations of a bombshell. And there have been expert expectations that have been building, of course for over a year on this. But people who are closest to what Muller has been doing interacting with the special counsel caution me that this report is almost certain to be anti-climactic, unquote. So how's it possible? Then that the F that the New York Times can read a headline on Friday and their addition Saturday and Sunday today and yesterday, quote FBI opened inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia when New York Times. Reported nothing new. In fact, it is so bad. That the author of this article gave an interview his name is Adam Goldman. He's the chief author of the article that appeared Friday night. He said there's no indication in the article that the FBI obtained a new piece of evidence linking Trump directly to Russia and times reporter, Adam Goldman said in an interview published on Saturday that his sources were quick to caution that the counterintelligence investigation was in there weather. Trump was wittingly or unwittingly acting in the interest of Russia quote from Adam Goldman, quote, people were very careful to me that it's wittingly or unwittingly. We are not here to say that Trump is an agent of a foreign power, quote, unquote. So what is the story then the author of the article said? We're not here to say that Trump is an agent of a foreign power. The molar investigation has not shown evidence of collusion. Otherwise, it would have been leaked those who know everything about it. Peter stroke and Lisa page, texted back and forth. There's no there there. So what are we talking about? What's the big deal? NBC MSNBC. And CNN headed complete meltdown. And these are the same leaders of the department of Justice all promoted by Barack Hussein Obama who wanted to clearly repudiate the message the election. The verdict of the American people. These are the same members of the department of Justice who found no corruption would fast and furious found no corruption with Lois Lerner found no corruption when President Bill Clinton received millions of dollars from Russians while his wife was secretary of state who minimalized the investigation of the Clinton Email internet scandal and ignore the sleaze in the Clinton foundation, the same individuals or are now telling us directly and indirectly. There was no collusion. It didn't happen. It was alive yet, the New York Times one after the president again, and again, and again and one last thought we have thousands and millions are listening. You might recall. The John doubt who was the president's attorney issued a statement on Saturday yesterday and said the following, quote, this is the president's attorney who knows where the bodies are buried knows everything about the Imola investigation from the president's perspective quote. The New York Times story is an unwitting disclosure and verification of the outer corruption of the roads by fired FBI director James Comey and his colleagues to undermine the free election of president Donald J Trump it was apparently done under the supervision of rod Rosenstein, who was reportedly ready to wear a wire too and snare the president. This is the stuff of banana republics in dictator ships. This despicable unlawful official misconduct. Undermines our entire federal criminal Justice system, which protects our liberty is to free people, unquote. This was a rogue investigation that mutated into Robert Muller's investigation. That's ruined many lives kept Americans in solitary confinement, chorus confessions through threats of life, destroying and financially bankrupting prosecutions, and now we're left the report supposedly is going to be issued in February. And according to Jonathan Karl of ABC news his sources in the molar investigation. Leaking to him tell him to say there's no there there. So what in the hell was this all about the past forty eight hours? It's all about a template of chaos created by the mainstream media by the Democrats to make Trump unelectable and twenty twenty and take power away from him and undermine him while conducting the fight over the border wall. If Trump collapses on the border wall, if there's not a shovel in the dirt, this will be similar to Bush. Forty one read my lips. No new taxes. Trump has got to remain firm. Put it all together. Don't know yet. The Muller reports coming out allegedly in February. There's no there there, according to Andrew McCabe Peter Struck Lisa page, and Jonathan Karl and the liar and the leaker James Comey, by the way, whoever leaked to the New York Times and Adam Goldman and Michael Schmidt. This story from the molar investigation is committing a felony. Does anyone care about the felonies committed by the Muller investigation themselves by the Democrats ninety five percent of the lawyers and the Mueller investigation are card-carrying members of the Democratic Party? So this is a cabal to bring down the president or undermine his policies because the Democratic Party and the academics and the big city newspapers and the walls. Street Journal and the New York Times and the Washington Post can't stand it. Let's continue with your calls. Coming up later. We have Steven dais of the blaze has written a new book and also Julie gun. Lock of the independent women's forum. By were they shut down is headed the headline.
