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
Teen activists speak up at UN to ensure kids voices are heard in child-friendly treaty

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
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.. Or folks yesterday trying to say listen listen listen just because Bob Muller appeared to be old and dithering doesn't mean that the underlying content isn't important guys. You're building this up because you thought that Bob Muller I was GONNA walk in like Tom Cruise in the top gun trailer and just own it and that is not the way this worked here is C._N._N..

"komi" Discussed on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA
"You look at at at Komi you look at Muller and I know Dershowitz, just was finally willing to say yesterday that he's a partisan. We said this for a while. Yes, there was a report came out. So this is a partisan report. Yes. And why because he could decide he left the big question open. Well, there might be obstruction of Justice without answering. The question his only job was to answer the question, whether there was evidence or not. Right. Didn't have to indict this is. And by the way, it's the elephant new every prosecutor knows that what Muller did yesterday is bogus every prosecutor knows what he did was bogus. Right. Everyone. And if they don't admit it, that's because they hate Trump to dip it works for their narrative, and they are also hack. But think of the fill that was inside the upper management, a federal law enforcement. In this country. And our intelligence agencies look at the rot that existed in there, the bureaucrats at still today. Believed that they get to run things and not the elected representatives. There is rot inside the system Muller. Is now made it as clear as you possibly can Muller is part of that rot in Washington DC. He's part of the rot of the federal government and federal law enforcement. It's a. It's sad. It's pathetic. Eight six six ninety.
FBI's Wray: Spying is 'not the term I would use' to describe Trump campaign probe
"Just hours after bars interviews, the president tweeted, my campaign for president was conclusively spied on. And he celebrated the departures of. Top intelligence officials involved in the investigation. Komi Brennan Clapper would drain the swamp folks, but former deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, an FBI director Christopher Ray have both said that Russia investigation was appropriate and legal last week Ray distanced himself from bars use of the term spying. Will that's not the term I would use. The Justice Department's inspector general is also reviewing how the Russia investigation was handled. He's expected issue report as soon as
Trump Lashes Out at James Comey After CNN Town Hall
"President Trump on Twitter talking about another subject James Comey's time on CNN. The president tweets James Komi is a disgrace to the FBI and we'll go down as the worst director in its long and once proud history, he brought the FBI down almost all Republicans and Democrats thought he should be fired in capital letters. But the FBI will regain greatness because of the great men and women who work there explanation point. You're listening to USA radio
"komi" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"You take director Komi out of the equation and his actions in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen with the country where it is today. I think that he did a terrible job. I would say he probably led some kind of an effort the words spying has been used probably was one of the people leading the effort on his fine. So very serious charge. We'll find out whether or not it was true. And I think it could very well be true. We're gonna find out pretty soon. How was this not spying? Well, I guess it depends on your definition spying attorney general sort of saying the other day that he has an expansive view of spying, including legal spying, in the way that if the government actually has the right to be doing it that spying is not he legal others, heavy different connotation of it and see it more nefarious -ly. What this was was the FBI felt that it needed to have eyes and ears on the ground as us a confidential informant to speak to to Trump campaign officials, and what they did was they install the woman with this professor in England who made these attempts to talk to these individuals, and the woman herself spoke to at least one of them what they showed to us was sort of how seriously the F B I was taking the problem. How two lanes they were willing to go to to put a trained investigator someone. That knew how to collect information knew how to collect evidence to testify in a trial putting them on the ground to bear.
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
Robert Mueller, President And Donald Trump discussed on John Hancock
"Or if you've read everything you can get your hands on regarding the Miller report you're exhausted. The president. He must be exhausted B's been tweeting up a storm and responding to the report's release yesterday. Including one in which he says the could have fired the special counsel. And he could have he said, you know, anything Russians did concerning the twenty sixteen election was done while Obama was president. He was told about it and did nothing and then later yesterday, he quoted remarks from Tucker Carlson over at FOX and some other FOX hosts, and he said, the Mueller report is perhaps the single most humiliating thing that has ever happened to the White House press in the history of this country. They no they lied. And then he got in trouble with game of thrones. Used a game of thrones mean to. And got a wild rebuke from from HBO. But. He said though, we can understand the enthusiasm for game of thrones. Now that the final season is arrived. We still prefer our intellectual property that'd be used for political purposes. So that was the president of the United States down for using your. Your product. And then today, the president alas doubt at Mike Doyle talking about. This certain associates who actually spoke with the special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the Russia investigation. And he called some of the claims made about him meeting about him, Donald Trump total Bs. Quotes statements are made about me by certain people than the crazy Mueller report in itself written by eighteen angry democratic trumpeters, which are fabricated and totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so called notes when the notes never existed until needed, and he was probably pointing out at his own counsel on that, Don Mcgann. He. The Miller report dropped and found no evidence of collusion. But there was a report that outlines how Trump told then White House counsel, Don Mcgann to inform. The acting attorney general that Mueller should be removed in two thousand seventeen June of two thousand seventeen and megani ignored that. And by the way. Magan was with the president just about six months ago. So Trump also allegedly question Magons habit for taking notes and making memos for the record assigned that his tweets were likely aimed at in part is former counsel. Why do you take notes lawyers? Don't take notes I've never had a lawyer who took notes. But actually, he must have because. Gone was his Gasol and he took notes. So the notes appear to have angered Trump, but also allowed Mueller to conclude that Magan was a credible witness with no motive to lie or exaggerate given the position that he held in the White House. So Wall Street Journal today says by the fall of twenty seventeen it was clear that special counsel's opinion piece by Kimberly throttle. It was appear that the it was a clear that the special counsel Robert Mueller as a former director of the federal re Federal Bureau of investigation was too conflicted to take detached look at the Russia collusion story that had become more about F B I malfeasance than about Donald Trump and the evidence of that has now been staring us down through four hundred forty eight pages of his report, and she goes on to say that the attorney general Bill bar noted Thursday that the that he disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories, and she says, maybe he had in mind, Mr. Mueller's proposition that he was entitled to pursue obstruction questions. Even though that was not part of his initial mandate from rob Rosenstein, the deputy. Attorney general said the report instead mostly reads as a lengthy defense of the FBI of its shaky claims about how the investigation began of it's far fetched theories of its procedures even of its leadership. One of the more telling sections concerns comas firing Mueller's team finds it generally beyond the realm of possibility that the FBI director was canned for incompetence or insubordination it treats everything that the F B I or Komi did is legitimate, even as it threatened, even as the treats everything the president did as suspect Mueller is an 'institutionalised and many of us and many on his team were the same Justice department attorneys who I fanned the partisan collusion claims. He was the wrong man to provide an honest assessment of the twenty sixteen collusion's dirty trick. And we've got a report approve. Of it. So. Wall Street Journal always comes up for the niche angle a different way to look at things. And in some cases, solidifies your side of the equation. If you need. To be so reinforced. Sure if you haven't had enough of the Mueller report in the last seven or eight days, you'll have an entire Easter weekend. Because the news networks not gonna have a lot to do between now and Monday except talk about this
Donald Trump, Special Counsel And White House discussed on Glenn Beck
"The release of special counsel Robert Mueller's final report to the Russia collusion investigation also reveals criminal or not dirt on the Trump administration. Fox's Chad pergram explains there's some pretty damaging information in this report, it certainly gives you a window into what was going on in the White House the mechanics of the firing of James Komi tension with the former attorney general Jeff Sessions, certainly the former White House counsel, Don Mcgann, and you know, some of this will be up to interpretation some people will probably even those who aren't fans of Donald Trump will say, well, that's just how he rolls because they expect nothing but turmoil and things like that Miller did not generate the president on obstruction of Justice. But did say no one in the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to interfere in the two thousand sixteen
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. Now. It's fine. A political libel is unparalleled in American history. That's going to be the story next to a year.
AG Barr says spying on Trump campaign 'did occur,' but provides no evidence
"About the big revelation. The breaking news is turning general bar has just said in front of congress. There was spying on the Trump campaign going on whether or not it was justified or not he's going to look into. But there was fine going on. Right. Clearly. So there you go. Remember when somebody used the term spy us and other people, oh spy, and what are you talking about spying? Okay. Well, the general just said it was fine. Yeah. They mocked Trump for Torney general. I think if you listen to good that was good though, Sean, thank you. That's what he's supposed to do. I thought at the time. And I think now they are making the station. I think Komi and others and McCabe and others. It's our investigation. If you listened to my phone calls, I think you're spying by watching everything they do, but it wasn't spying.
President Trump, Robert Muller And President discussed on Red Eye Radio
"President Trump in the Oval Office the day after the summary of Muller's report became big and bright news for him, but reflecting on what he views as a conspiracy to toward his election and presidency. There are a lot of people out there that have done some very very evil things very bad things. I would say treasonous thing is against our. Country the ants. He'd have no problem with the entire Muller report being released. Now comes the debate over how much of the reports can and should be made public. For instance, total exoneration are not one of President Trump's personal attorneys. Jay seculow does not want. The president's written answers to questions released would very aggressively for that information to not be released. I think any lawyer would Mr. Trump insisted he wrote the answers himself Muller did not press. The issue of having a face to face interview. With the President Robert Muller finding no conspiracy and coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia 's election interference efforts what's often described in the non legal term is collusion will be the focus of White House reaction as a reason to say, the president is exonerated press secretary Sarah Sanders, joining the call for some to apologize Democrats that have gone out for the last two years actually over two years and accused the president of the United States, president of being an agent of a foreign governor. Take a second and let that sink Democrats are not going to apologize for sure. Those speaker of the house Pelosi has tamped down calls for impeachment. Bob Costantini, Washington. And we're joined the evening by Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law, professor to give us some thoughts tonight. I keep hearing this term. No exoneration Allen that's not the job of a prosecutor. He's not the morality police. The prosecutor's job is to sift through the evidence and either press charges or not. You tell me if I'm wrong, everybody agreed to that. When Komi did the same thing. And he said he was not going to indict Hillary Clinton. But that she was guilty of extreme carelessness, and all the Democrats and all the liberals and CNN went crazy. And I went crazy. Does that was not what prosecutors is supposed to do this supposed to simply say, we're not gonna win Hillary Clinton? But suddenly the same people that were upset about that are thrilled that the special prosecutor said no exoneration that's just not the proper function of a special counsel. He just should say no indictment or say, you attorney general decide whether there's an indictment. I think that's a cop out. But the idea of saying no exoneration in the idea of issuing report, which might have criticisms of various subjects who were investigated for not indicted. It's just not with prosecutors is supposed to do I complained about that when store went after Bill Clinton. I complain about it equally now because I'm nonpartisan looks. I've been right from day one from day one. I said that there was no collusion. No conspiracy. No, obstruction of Justice. All the other pundits, particularly on CNN were misleading the public and saying, well, just wait you'll see treason. Impeach. High crimes misdemeanors, obstruction of Justice, collusion and people who watch CNN all the time was shocked because they were told to expect all these negative things. If people watch me or watch other people who were taking a realistic legal position. They wouldn't have been surprised at all. I note that asked outright by a reporter if the president thought that Robert Muller acted honourably the president simply replied, yes. And yet, I know you are quoted as saying that the vital report from mater sounds like a law school exam or a shirt his job and didn't have the guts to make a decision on whether or not President Trump obstructed Justice. Do you think the president's being too generous in his remark about the honorable behavior of Robert Muller?
Trump calls Mueller report summary a 'complete and total exoneration'
"President Trump is wrong. This report does not amount to a so-called total. Exoneration special counsel Mueller was clear that his report quote does not exonerate close quote, the president his conclusions. Raise more questions than answer. It is unconscionable that President Trump would try to spin the special counsel counselors findings as if his conduct was remotely acceptable. Let me just tell you about this character. He's for thirty years. He's been trying to get at the President Trump any can't presents mocked him mercilessly mercilessly when he was a state Senator whether it was right or not. That's a fact and now report comes out they does exonerate him. In those words, and he wasn't want the president to do. It's unconscionable. He could sit there in the street and get heckled only once which I give the MVP award to the heckler. In New York. You just started yelling Adam during it. It might have been Howard Stern guy. I'm not sure. But I only regret that he stopped Nadler's an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. If you want that to be that person to be your Representative and the person that the average American has in mind when they go to the voting booth in twenty twenty good luck. Scotland's in whol in Dayton, Ohio. He's got. Thanks for your show. Have hats off to you. It's time for this to be done was. It also positive scattered agenda of America back on track for all of the feelings that he's had to Bill what he's doing a good job. And. Bowel cancer thing. Boy, there's a ROY. America's just you know, the people running the country at Sterry always contenders, sir. Oh my goodness. In the stuff. They're running on from the new green deal that the governor of Washington is backing to come LA Harris. Let's have free pot free prostitution. Let's start. Elizabeth warren. Let's start breaking up companies to free healthcare free free college free preschool. I mean, it's impossible to do what they're doing Scott. I don't know what they're doing right now. But the president got an opportunity just get stuff done start knocking things off his list. This is a this is his second biggest day since he won the election. No one ever give him credit for it. Remember, they said, well, you didn't win the popular vote. Then we had one of these independent candidates demanding a recount, three states, president of gaining more votes than the electoral college, the delegates who ceremonially supposed to back up with the state. Does they started to be try to flip? And some of them didn't do what they were supposed to be doing. Then incomes the Russia investigation, and some people just keep on looking at for another reason not to not to look at one of the biggest upsets in political history in any country any time. That's what happened in two thousand sixteen. Don't want want to acknowledge it now. Molly Henneberg weighed in and said, yeah, this is a coastal one chapter. But. Opens up another cut Twenty-eight buying into this dossier that now today we know not anything in that dossier led to has has proven to be correct. So this is this is a very important moment in the story. But it doesn't mean it's over because. Yes, the one storyline is done. But now the other storyline. We'd better get we'd better see a lot more about what was going on. I like to see it done and by the way after impeachment when Hillary co when Bill Clinton was impeached in the house, and it stopped in the Senate. They they stopped investigating. They are going to keep continue to investigate now after the Robert Moore probe Eric who's on news ninety six five in Orlando hair. Brian. It's so sickening. The media for two years told us that Robert Mueller had the greatest integrity in DC. And now they're actually on MSNBC saying that oh to the Russians. Right. And did he did he sell out? I think what Trump should do is. Now, put them on the defensive. Have Adam Schiff declassify all of it. Let them see the Adam Schiff was leaking. Let them see what McCain did. And then Friday, five o'clock. So that they have to wait for the week, and he should say, I'm I'm asking Mr. bar to investigate what really happened 'cause Robert Mueller Alice h he's a witness and Rosenstein, he wrote the letter to fire each he's a witness. How the heck did he wind up having this whole thing? I'd like to hear your could on that. But I tell you what I love the I love the tactic of leaving them there for the final summary. Don't you Eric? So instead of saying, well, he jettisoned the guy who's going to wear a wire rod Rosenstein, and he said, no come here, you read with Robert Muller said, and I want you to Luke over my shoulder win and writing this summary, and you tell me ride am I doing anything that you don't trust Rosenstein was there for the letter to fire Komi Rosenstein was there for the meeting with McCabe after Komi was fired and launched the Robert Mueller investigation. He signed the FIS away. Aren't and he was there when he got exonerated. So I love for people just to looking for an opening and Robert Mueller. Oh, now robber mo-. He might have been compromised or they're doubting. Robert Muller, really, Robin Mullah who's good friends with Bill
New book on Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump paints a gloomy portrait
"Right. So this week guys. The guardian got a hold of a new book coming out March nineteenth called Kush ink by Vicky ward, I mentioned at top of the show or not the top maybe. But earlier in the show when I was talking about Trump printing out the Komi firing letter on the wrong printer. So in this book, some of our beans came true, check out this clip from episode eighteen the Daily Beast broke a story on Friday that Kushner's dad asked a Qatari firm to lend the Kushner's money to shore up sixty six sixty six Fifth Avenue. We've talked about the six six six building. It's the office building that's the centerpiece of the Kushner real estate empire, and it is one billion dollars in debt, and that loan is coming due in two, months, and Kushner and his family been scrambling to get money to pay this lingo. And that's what the city group and Apollo five hundred million dollar loans went into the office building. And Kushner's dad went to Qatar and ask them can we have some money and to to put into this office building Qatar looked at the office building because he bought it in two thousand seven right before the bubble bursts. So that was dumb and Qatar went no note that you and that upset Kushner, but what's interesting is that when that deal fell apart. Kushner backed a Saudi blockade of Qatar. Basically teaming up with Saudi Arabians to to put throw a blockade up against Qatar and Qatar is one of our key allies in the fight against Aycell in the region, that's national security level shit. We have thousands troops in Qatar like. But his, but he but his not getting alone. And now, it's not proven that. It's connected. But it's to him. It was clearly more important, but well, whether he did it because of that or not, but he did he did advocate for the blockade against Qatar. And it happened to be less than a month after Qatar refused to lend him money on that build interesting. So we'll see if that also. Yeah, we'll see Moller's looking into it. And also the securities the SEC the securities and Exchange Commission dropped an inquiry into Apollo Apollo global management less than a month after they agreed to lend Kushner one hundred and eighty million dollars. So go back and listen to eighteen because it's all about putting club Kushner, and I have a feeling we're going to hear a lot more about Kushner in the next couple of weeks anyhow in this new book, we learned that around that time Kush was confronted by Tillerson, and Gary Cohn who blamed Kush for Trump's abrupt endorsement of. Saudi blockade against cutter. Even though they're an ally in the region. We have our one of our largest bases there with a quite a few military stationed there. Shortly thereafter, cutter help to bail out Kushner from his devil building sixty six Fifth Avenue. The guardian also published a piece this week about cushion, how his friendship with Mohammed bin some on. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia is at the heart of US Saudi relations, and as we know Kushner Flynn, and a whole host Trump allies have pushed to provide the Saudis with technology to build nuclear reactor plants that could put them on the path to developing nuclear weapons if they want to enrich their own uranium, which they definitely do which is dumb because it's way less than half the price to get it enriched elsewhere and shipped back to you. So the fact that you want enriched uranium suspicious uranium means you want to make weapons. So let's go over a few things we discuss regarding Kushner on the pod I way back in April twenty seventeen Kushner's dad asked the country's for a loan. And they said, no, you're stupid. Get out of him two months later. Saudi Arabia throws up the blockade much to the chagrin of Conan. Tillerson. Incidentally, that's right around the time Jamalco Shoji left Saudi Arabia after he trash talk Trump.

"Wanted to lift the cloud komi also told congress that the president had said to him that this russia business was interfering in his ability to run the country as president these notes we obtained appear to show that komi told data bentayga the exact same thing komi also told congress that the president had asked him to make a public statement that the president wasn't personally being investigated by the fbi komi appears to have recounted that same presidential request these same way to dana bet komi also told congress that that he that james comey had had asked the attorney general to make sure the president never again spoke to him alone one on one about matters like this komi conveyed the same description of that same conversation to dana bent and from these notes we got it appears to us almost the exact same word for word language so the reason all of that matters the reason those matching phrases those matching descriptions of those conversations the reason that's important is because the president is potentially in legal jeopardy for firing james komi if not firing was an effort by the president to obstruct justice now how to prosecute his termine if an action like that wasn't effort to obstruct justice they look at why it was done and so all these pre firing conversations and interactions between james comey and the president they may end up being part of any legal case against the president if those interactions show what the president thought of komi what he wanted from komi what might have motivated him to fire james comey that's why komi testified about those interactions with the president in detail under oath to congress last year honestly that's also why there's so much intimidation about combs book coming out next week what happened between komi and the president before the president fired him is really important to the question of whether the president might be criminally charged or otherwise liable for obstruction of justice in this instance and the president of course disputes commes.
