"The person who is facing federal charges keeps a low profile that is not true of Lev Parnassus an associate of Rudy Giuliani he's been getting lots of interviews on cable news lately he's reminiscent of another person who used to be in president trump's orbit and who was also under indictment that's the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas as a story back in September a few weeks before he was indicted in the Southern District of New York for alleged campaign finance crimes left part us spoke with NPR I know you're not gonna believe me what I'm going to tell you in each you can definitely called me president trump doesn't need any help the president trump is one of the greatest presidents we have that was then and this is now here is left are not speaking last week to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow about his time in trump world it was like you know being out in the cold I mean I'm in trouble when they say oh organize counting trump was like we're gonna think he's like a cult leader that was one of the tamer claims point us made in his cable news appearances he alleged the president was fully aware of his and Rudy Giuliani's efforts to dig up dirt in Ukraine on former vice president Joe Biden he also claimed that vice president Mike pence and Attorney General William Barr we're both in on the alleged scheme allegations they both deny part now says he's speaking out now because he wants to get the truth out about what he knows why isn't he a government cooperators if he knows all of this that's Terry Sendek a former federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York my guess is that it might be somewhat similar to what happened with Michael Cohen you can't be comical operator unless the government believes you're telling the truth and you admit your underlying criminal conduct that Michael Colin was trumps long time personal lawyer and fixer the man who famously said he'd take a bullet for his boss Colin was indicted in the Southern District of New York in April of twenty eighteen for a range of financial crimes trump initially defended him before later trying to distance himself despite their years of shared history coincidentally broke with the president and gave the press a tape recording of him in trump discussing payments to a former playboy playmate who alleges she had an affair with trump here I'm Chris Cuomo welcome the prime time we have one of the Michael Cohen tapes the secret recording of president trump back in twenty sixteen made going tourney Lanny Davis how did that recording on CNN and later to other outlets including ABC I will say that Michael calling this turned a corner in his life and he's now dedicated to telling the truth to everyone Davis became a media regular pushing that message Cohn had information the public should know and he was willing to share it Cohn ultimately pleaded guilty and months later testified before Congress but he never cooperated fully with federal prosecutors the former prosecutor static says that raises questions when somebody has exciting information and they're eager to share it but they're not a cooperators like Michael Collins you kind of assume that it's because they're not willing to play the Southern District game here's how that standard process works in the Southern District a cooperating witness has to admit to what they've been charged with and provide information about all other criminal activity they know about Colin never did that he did provide useful information to the special counsel's rush investigation but he did not fully cooperate with New York prosecutors Parnassus pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and he says he wants to work with prosecutors but he doesn't have a cooperation agreement yet sending suggested partners may be playing a similar game to call in trying to cooperate via a media campaign with an eye toward sentencing you're imagining what the sentencing will look like and you want to tell the judge like look we were ready to talk we went on TV we gave all these all this evidence we did everything possible and we understand the government has its rules and we disagree with them but judge you should give us some credit for that prosecutors have said they expect to bring more charges in the case which means partners.
"lev" Discussed on Dumb, Gay Politics
"It's time for our new segment called the clap back where we celebrate a political figure engaged in an exciting clapback this week featured clapback involving two of our most prominent and annoying congressman Ted Lieu as a Democratic Democratic House representative from California. You've seen this guy. He's always on the news and on twitter being super bitchy trump and his cronies he represents Beverly Everley hills and the palisades and all the beach cities. And let me tell you it shows how he's Taiwanese like Andrea which we completely fucking love. And yes. We've been to Taiwan on but he is serving all the continents that one would expect from congressman. repping be hills okay now. We begged him to come on the podcast and he's is always ignored us. So that makes me dislike him thirsty desperate way. That would turn on a dime if you ever gave the day exactly. Well tell you clapback a Devon Nunez this week week and it is fucking incredible. Devon Nunez is a disgusting revolting Republican House Representative from the California which is halfway between. La And San Francisco. His district is the Fresno Slash Bakersfield area. He's a notorious trump schill and asshole. He's broken nine hundred loss to protect trump through tons kinds of salt in the game during the Russia investigation. Everyone hates Devon Nunez including the people in his district who probably don't even realize that he's their own fucking representative representative. I truly believe that I agree. He's such a pussy ass bitch that he's Sui twitter for literally for two hundred and fifty million dollars over over two accounts named Devon Nunez mom and Devon Nunez cow okay. He's a loser. That represents everything that's wrong with American politics checks and everything that's wrong with corporate America. He's probably hated Ted lieu for awhile since Ted Lewis on twitter. Twenty four seven put on blast but then last December December ted lieu accused Nunez of conspiring with love Parnis who is the shady Ukrainian at the center of all this impeachment drama. No definition has denied any involvement with love and then had his lawyer send Ted lieu a cease and desist letter in the letter. Devin Nunes lawyer demands that Ted lieu stop any further defamatory statements and then post the retraction to his accusations on twitter. That's how obsessed Evans's with twitter that he's got to have like some proof it'd be put out on twitter. He wants a public apology and he wants and on twitter because he can't stand. What a fucking joke? He is all over that everywhere. And now you guys. We didn't mention it in the shit storm but love Parnassus like I said. He's The shady Ukrainian at the center of all the impeachment drama. The thing was is that last week Rachel maddow interviewed him and this crazy Z.. Like huge interview and a huge gap and it was a big career. Move Rachel Maddow and it was a big deal in general but he also spilled all the and admitted all the fucking nasty Republicans that he was involved in so basically Ted lieu after getting the you know the cease and desist from devin nunes. His lawyer Ted lieu delivered the Beverly Hills Nine hundred zero style. clapback that no one saw coming so rather than poster retraction. He tweeted the first page of the five. I paid cease and desist letter along with his own response. Letter to Nunez's lawyer which read exactly this motherfucker tweeted this us. I received your letter in which you state that. Your client congressman. Nunez will sue me. If I don't among other actions issue a public apology to Demo Nunez. It is true that I stated that Congressman Congressman Nunez worked with left Parnassus and conspire to undermine our own government. As you know truth is defense so go read. The documents and text messages provided by life have partners to the House of Representatives and watches interview on the Rachel. Maddow show that directly implicates representative Nunez. I welcome any lawsuit from your client and look forward taking discovery of Congressman Nunez. Or you can take your letter and shove it and and that is how you do. A motherfucking clapback Ted lose master. CLAPBACK is the perfect segue into our new favorite segment called. Leaving People voicemails devoted ettelaat.

Parnas attorney asks William Barr to recuse himself from investigation
"The attorney general in on whatever was going on there in the Ukraine I have never spoken to attorney general bar. You're about this investigation ever. I have been circumspect. Careful exceedingly careful. Not only that Parnasse knows that. I told a several times that I would make sure I would never go to the attorney general with it so I wouldn't compromise it. That's really on Fox News tonight making his own case while his has indicted one time. Buddy is doing the same Lev Parnassus attorney today requested that. Attorney General William Bar recused himself take himself out of the federal campaign finance case against Parnis. He's also calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor. Claiming prosecutors have refused to meet with him and receive receive information on the president. Giuliani and the other significant players here is a reminder of what parnes told Rachel Matto about the role all that Bill Barr played. Do you know if Mr Giuliani was ever in contact with Mr Bar specifically about the fact that he was trying to get Ukraine to announce these investigation into Joe Biden. Absolutely Mr Bar knew about that. Mr Bar known everything. The difference between white trump so powerful now. He wasn't as powerful in sixteen seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. That gets your attention as they say and with us for more tonight Maya wildly former assistant. US Attorney for the Southern District of New York now with the new school here in New York. And Rick Wilson Longtime Republican strategists co-founder of the Lincoln Project A SUPERPAC created created by conservatives with the aim of defeating trump and trump ISM. His new book goes a long way toward that very ideal running against the devil. A plot to save America got from trump and Democrats from themselves. We welcome you both tonight. Maya Wiley in normal times would love to have a lock accenture. Deal with the Fed's New York. Would there be an investigation. Launched as in. Do you hear what this guy is saying about people at the highest levels of of our government. That's a hard question to answer quite honestly Brian. And here's what I mean by that. I don't think there's any question that William Bar has earned earned himself and impeachment inquiry. So that's clear and that starts from his misrepresenting the muller pro report before. It's it's released knowing that Robert Mueller have some issues with the way he's handling it that goes to the fact that he himself has personally flown around the globe helping helping to kind of try to stir up some of the dirt that Donald Trump wants all kinds of reasons that we could list about. Why William Barr himself deserves some scrutiny? In some oversight that's very different from saying in in different world where Donald Trump was not president accident love. parnassus would be would have some kind of cooperation agreement. Or where William Sorry was not attorney general and that's because we just don't know enough about all all the evidence that the US Attorney's office has if your in the US Attorney's office and someone just doesn't have anything to offer you if they cooperate great. Meaning you don't believe they're telling the truth or you have so much evidence that you don't believe they can add to the evidence that you have or both you would have a legitimate reason not to enter into a cooperation agreement with someone and left Parnasse. We should remember eleventh. PARNIS is has some of his assertions and the Rachel maddow interview have documents. Those are documents the. US Attorney's office had and enabled him to share their other allegations allegations that he makes that. He says he believes but he doesn't necessarily offer any directed specific knowledge to suggest just that he could offer anything more substantive so. I think we have to separate out whether there's huge issues of public trust with William Bar and there's it's a question about whether I think the. US Attorney for the Southern District. Berman should cues with regard to Rudy Giuliani because he is the one who recommended Rudy Giuliani for US attorney spot with Donald Trump and appearance of conflict or appearance of impropriety. It is enough to recuse because we have to have the public believing in the institutions. But I don't want to go so far as to say that just by definition because left Parnassus is saying. He should have a cooperation agreement. He should have a cooperation agreement. Rick Wilson at a more basic societal level. When you think about it ah in the last seven to ten days we have come to know a landscaper from Connecticut? Who pardoned the double negative left? Parnis said he has never never seen him not drunk and now the European guy in the Maga- hat with a Belgian ip address. How is it that we we come to meet these characters? Surrounding in the orbit of the President of the United States there are some mystical gravitational force surrounding Donald Trump that attracts the worst griff tres scales scumbags roadside hobos incipient serial killers weirdos. These guys are attracted to him. Because they're like the d the D and E and F level operatives in this world and for whatever reason they feel empowered and it's pretty easy you show up at the trump hotel if you can afford the twenty two dollar cocktails. You're in the club. And so that's why we see guys like hide showing up and that's why you see all these all these other sort of oddball characters always surrounding trump and and and it's also because you know most of the people that that are in this rudy PARNIS orbit in particular. You know they come out of this eastern European whatever version of of of Hustle. Oh they're running is always inflected with whatever the sort of post-soviet corruption vibe and it seems to be very much definitional additional trump's orbit rick starting with you I want you and my answer the same question and I hate that. It's an a negative vein about the impeachment in trial. What are you girding for or resigned to girding for Mitch McConnell to choke this thing out as quickly as he can? There's no other option for McConnell right now if the dam breaks on any vote and the reason he didn't go for an immediate dismissal. Vote obviously as everyone else's covered was that he knows was if he loses one. It shakes the idea that he can control this process completely. So he's going to be very careful. He's going to move as quickly as he possibly can. He's going to try to make this as Dulles he can. Which I think is why as as clean with chain you earlier? He thought he thought he's GonNa win. By moving into the night. I think there's enormous public interest in this but on the optimistic side there will always be more information coming and these senators are not blind to the fact that trump lies to them all the time and that every time. They think they've gotten to the bottom of something with trump. There's worse things below it so I think you're going to see some skepticism building especially as the outside outside coverage continues to roll on in terms of both the story and the other revelations about Ukraine situation I can offer you my upwards of thirty seconds before I have to take our first break. I agree with

"Then the posing and cherry picking if any of those public so the idea that you would get the testimony of Lev part is who made a big splash on Rachel Maddow MSNBC show by jumping all over the president saying that he's a liar and talking about the Ukraine situation that doesn't happen that showdown that drama is done that's it the idea that John Bolton the former defense secretary would testify done the idea that Mike Mulvaney would be a witness done most likely it's a pretty interesting to to see this now in a brief from the president's lawyers which took a course is Dream Team legal second time around they argued that he did absolutely nothing wrong and urge the Senate to just reject the case that is flimsy saying in it according to one of the lines I saw all of this is a dangerous perversion of the constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemned the article should be rejected the president should be immediately quit it a hundred and ten page brief from the White House when I say this should be interesting yeah it should be interesting should be really interesting so anyway senators are poised for you know basically a third trial we set it couple times of its kind in our history but they have to go through this whole rules fight and then the witness deal so this is big it's a you know what it is it's the it's deciding on what's going to happen when it's laid out and the the preview of this could kill the rest of it and then there is a good chance of that but if you look at the numbers in the Senate where the numbers add up where do they go are there the swing votes the Democrats will claim of the Republicans so the Senate has a fifty three forty seven Republican majority so they're not expected to mount the two thirds votes they needed for conviction I mean really the president's lawyers suggested an outcome would be an unconstitutional convict shouldn't so they're already setting up just in case just in case here's Plancy and the White House also is saying that the house inquiry was lacking because they did investigate binders son hunter they just let them out of the whole thing who served on the board of the gas company in the U. creek wells father was the P. but of course there is no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of them poor taste and outrageous behavior by hunter Biden hello no doubt about that it's like a dateline MSNBC following him with secret cameras cameras rather would be very sad for his family Chuck Schumer says it's clear senator McConnell is hell bent on making it much more difficult to get witnesses and documents and intent on rushing the trial through so I talked about speed in the beginning and squishing this together and I think it is going to be speedy let's put it this way by the time Superbowl Sunday rolls around which is less than two weeks I don't believe that this is going to be going on I don't have a crystal ball I have some good sources and we've talked about the need for speed throughout this whole thing it's very important what happens with these opening statements these next couple of days our big the sixteen hours questions debate and then the call on whether this witness is if there's no witnesses where does this all go that is just more gum flapping by the so called jurors who were senators so I think it would be a very very quick wrap by the way Gallo hit a pole thirty one percent say trump should not be removed from office forty six percent say they want their senators to vote to convict the president where do you stand eight five five two six six twenty two eighty three or eighty the lady radio dot com back in a flash message and data rates may apply hello seriously I am too young for her love my hairline keeps creeping back receiving.

"That was a surprise. It is landed on the crown. But don't worry it also landed on mindhunter because I'm going to connect them. So how is it even possible. There's such different energies. I love the crown it was about a group of people committed to a moral obligation. Doing nothing there is an episode in which the Royal Family is filmed talking about. How boring it is to watch them? Being filmed watching television for television television. Show in the world in the most recent and very dramatic episode is the story of the Queen not leaving her house for a week uh-huh and then realizing she should've left earlier in the week there was is a very dramatic scene in which a birthday cake is being walked into an ornate room and then Queen Elizabeth walks into that room and says this Winston is dead this is churchill right Churchill Winston Churchill is dead and and it ruins that birthday party roll credits and I'm going to keep watching it all right and I'm going to watch it when they transition transition from Olivia Colman too. I assume Helen Mirren. I don't know who's next in the roster. I'm a little bit annoyed that as Prince. Philip gets it's older like that Matt Smith all right and I liked that matthew good there is a hot hot royals season won until now. They're getting older. That's fine the point. Is I go to Netflix. With an open heart all right you show me the crown on to it for a year or two to get to it all right because books have nothing on TV. And so I watched watch the deeply strange show about an angel who uses the power of dance to stop mass shootings later also about an octopus and I believe a plane crash. That wasn't shot might have come up future seasons but it was canceled minehunter. We're Jonathan GROFF. Plays a straight person and he really gives gives it. It's all and and there are moments during my mind hunter. We're just for a brief moment. I believe I'm watching a heterosexual or sexual mind hunter but the OA cancelled minehunter cancelled. Yeah you're finding out for me. It's for Shit and the problem with Netflix is. Because there's no ratings until it's too late that you didn't do your part to save the show I would have done more for the away I would have. I would have done more from minehunter very very dark and deeply strained show about about heterosexual mine under didn't grow and I say this as someone who greatly admires what the the Robots that Netflix are making with the pre cogs in their bath over there and net flicks are producing and so so I only teach the good people at net flicks in their panopticon from which they watch us all in our homes and the decisions we make. I'm not GonNa Complain about the fact that everything auto plays and there's just no way to stop it have you so much as come within in fifteen feet of a television of baking show begins to play. I'm not gonNA complain about it. That's your business. I also am not GonNa Complain About about the fact that if you even one fucking moment want to enjoy and savor something you watched experiencing the music chosen by Creator to play a over the credits. Netflix reaches through that set and punches. You in the face and says you go fuck yourself. Episode four is already fifteen minutes. It's in catch up mother fucker. They've already baked two dishes now going to complain about it. I'm not I'm I'm not doing what you have to do. NAP likes to keep us on the hook. I only ask you this. When shows are on the bubble strange and beautiful wonderful shows with which is and octopuses and mine hunters? Just tell us put out a flare and say hey. Don't get too attached to his mind hunter. You're not going to see him very much. Give us a chance dance to know what's going to have a chance of coming back or not. Just tell us just say hey you might WanNa think about launching a campaign to save the because we're gonNA fucking and eighty-six This thing for a witcher starring magically handsome man that shouldn't exist at least you have the crown but at least just as Kara helpfully points out.

"I ate it all and I feel really really bad and then the waiter came over and he was like. Oh you actually forgot not one piece of shrimp. Yeah actually it was going to eat that and then I took it and then I ate it and I'm so uh excited to be bad all right. He's the founder of very smart brothers. A writer at G. Q.. Magazine and the author of the book. What doesn't kill you makes you black or please welcome back Damon? Yong welcome back. Thanks for having me back. You're back back not back here. No less in Pittsburgh and I remember my evening Pittsburgh based on the sandwich we ate after the show which ages Scott Ponte's right permanant command for Manny's yes. They put French fries inside the sandwich. Because sometimes in Pittsburgh you gotta get moving you got things thanks to do. You do not have time to order. You don't have time for multiple orders you just you just on the same thing you eat it all on the same byte deficiency that comes from are still background is efficiency and just ingrained in our culture and I love that about Pittsburgh I love to. Have you ever had a sandwiches. French fries inside cares wisher. I mentioned it and fasting. So can you have it in our window sandwich. Why would I do that all right Princess Anne nevermind just for everyone listening at at home I am watching the crown crown references? Something that just keeping just keep an eye on. It'd be a lot of prints and references but a prince fill up references excited excited for the Megan and Harry Park. When they get to it? I Love I love a show. That says we're starting in the thirties. And we're going to end in the president. I love that as an idea. I love Al Bolden it is. I can't I was like I can't believe I have to say goodbye to Claire Foy but I can't believe I get to say hi to Olivia Colman speaking of entertainment earlier. This you guys were doing the late show by the way so love to see you all earlier this week way before Burning Warren work together to help Joe Biden become president. Twitter was a buzz twitter of buzz in anger about a different for an equally important battle. I'm speaking of course about the Oscar. Nominations back in two thousand fifteen after Oscarssowhite went viral. The academy invited eight hundred new members of which thirty nine percent were female mound. Thirty percent were non white which doesn't sound great but was a huge improvement this year. Not a single person of color was nominated for supporting actor actress and among the supporting actors every single nominee was is over the age of fifty six despite films like little women and portrait of a lady on fire. Not a single woman was nominated for best director in fact in the last decade. There's only been one time a woman it has been nominated for best director. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director since one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. Only two hundred black artists have ever been nominated at of ten thousand and possible slots so we thought we'd have our own award show one that reflects the opinions of a great and diverse society that I mean our specific beliefs at Luv. So it's time to welcome you all to the pundits yours so the pundits are really awarded. I will read the nominees for different categories and our panelists have to figure out who should win that category. Okay okay ready ready you got it. It's entirely subjective. And yet there is a right answer and the nominees for best movie to use as a litmus test for whether or not people have good taste the little women by Greta gerwig joker by Todd Phillips the Irishman by an unknown director and cast hat spy. John Wayne Casey talk amongst yourselves. It's definitely cuts. It's definitely cats. Cats is the best date movie. It's the best movie I haven't even seen it but just a conversation about it. Arkwright first day conversation as a litmus test for good taste I feel like it's very easy to say that you don't like cats or like because it's ironic or you don't like cats the movie like I feel like it's very easy for people to be like we didn't like the movie so it's not a litmus test but you could like Ronnie Liking things yeah that would like it because it's cool to like it you get high and you go and watch mazing time watching cats but I feel shrimp before it. It was their shrimp before so this time actually went on an empty stomach so I was able to enjoy my wife. The answer is not joker whatever to answer it it is not now so that's incorrect. Actually actually actually didn't land on anything. Which is why this is even harder for me to say no? Well here's the thing isn't joker a great litmus test because because if someone tells you joker is their favorite movie don't you know something really important you got it taste. I thought she'd been good taste. Just divide we're just using it. As a way of just judging person were just judging a person and would he goes well then obviously for little women because Joe March is a lesbian but go ahead guys stick together now. Don't you understood the two endings of that movie right. I have not seen it yet. I'm sorry I'll watch when I damn well please. Don has seen joker like thirty times. Have you seen what have you seen. I have seen joker the scene the Irishman. But that's only because you can watch it at home. You Watch it at Thanksgiving didn't you. It took six hours after Turkey. I watched it in two sittings. The Irishman and as it was meant to experience on my phone the scene and the nominees for movies. I didn't know came out until I saw it nominated for stuff. Ford versus Ferrari a movie about cars going room from room Richard Jewel which is like when they see us but about white people because Clint Eastwood directed it the two popes a movie about two popes with a twist ending reveals that he was pope. Durden the whole time and bombshell which includes an incredible performance by Shirley's there on who we should all remember dated the lead singer of third eye blind for three years. What do you think bombshell bombshell? That's the category and I mean this I already forgot all the nominee. Yep that is correct. Room Room three was a great movie bombshell. Have you all seen it. Nobody's I you know I get I. I feel like I see enough. Paula white women like just in culture and on TV. They don't have have to pay eight dollars for two hours in a movie. Air Point fairplay liberate. I don't need to see Megan Kelly. 'cause play when the Real Megan Kelly. Kelly like exists terrify. Kate McKinnon was funny. Yeah do be seen coming with Margaret Robbie at all but go ahead. You're like it's just like everything for my grandfather. Dave Simon He could tell you about every prominent Ju- every place in our society like he had a running tally. We're up to nine in the Senate Johnny. And and that's you and lesbians. I interviewed the cast of the ellwood today. So I'm in that kind of tone so did you record it or is this the nominees for her best picture. That takes place in one thousand. Nine seventeen are nineteen seventeen the godfather part to anesthesia Asia. The one thousand nine hundred seven animated film and maybe little women. I don't I don't know. Yeah that's all right. What do you think Damon?.

"In the financial sector sure doesn't mean you'll be too conciliatory when the time comes for the ongoing. I think it's a fair question. Because frankly I'm a capitalist but capitalism has a whole lot to to answer for a lot to answer. We've been practicing this very short term. Get the next quarter results for about forty years now and that same bad ed behavior by the way has crept into the way we govern ourselves. It's very election cycle to election cycle or news cycle the new cycle and not generation to generation. I know you're dying to ask me in particular about the the work. I did it being capital where I set up a business to invest in businesses for social and environmental impact. Because I wanted to demonstrate you don't have to trade financial return for social or environmental responsibility. That's been a false choice. Peddled by companies for a long time so we invest in companies for example that company that diverted green waste from landfills elsewhere would otherwise turn into methane and recycled it sold. It is composted soil and ground cover or company that delivered low cost High Quality Dental care for poor kids which is a big gap in In our healthcare system and those companies need capital to scale to and and. I'm really proud of the fact that we made a point that this like so much of what's pedaled in our public life was a false choice and and you know what you better be glad. Somebody is making that point because we as as we make our government functional and just we need a private sector that is also functional and just and that's been my work in the private sector just as it has been in the public someone who has one more question before we get to the just pure comedy I know. Let's get to that. We're getting to know but but you know you've talked about sort of what led to Donald Trump and you've talked about the fact that hate played a tremendous role and making someone like trump making it possible for someone like trump to reach the White House but that it wasn't only and that there were other problems other structural or problems other cultural problems. Do you think right now. Democrats are doing enough to understand and change and to speak to dude economic pain and cultural pain. That led people to be so cynical as to pull the lever for trump look. I think I'm persuaded persuaded as as my friend. John Wall says that all the racists voted for trump. But not all the people who voted for trump a racist. And I think I think it's important to understand that and to respect that that is not a compliment to trump but the truth is all these cheery economic indicators. We're here right now. They don't tell the whole story if unemployment is low as long as you count both or all three of the minimum wage jobs people have to survive right. Inflation is low as long as you don't count the cost of health care or housing or education right. The very things that enable people to stabilize themselves and move forward in onto a path of economic mobility we have a very these were issues before Donald trump the first one who I believed said at on a national level that conventional politics are establishment. Politics wasn't working for most people. Was Barack. Obama candidate trump said the same thing. You cut right through what he was saying the same thing and we need to speak to that. That's why I say it is critical. He go but we cannot go back to doing what we used to do. And so I think yes. I totally get the anger out there. But guess what on South side of Chicago. We've been feeling that anger for generations integrations generation. Same feeling of not being seen and heard and rather than just I. I'm trying to harness my anger and see that as an opportunity to make America true. That's all give it up for. Governor Pat the graciously agreed to play Queen for a day for decades grover norquist.

Please welcome Duval. Patrick Governor thank you for being here. Good evening everybody. I'm a little concerned about being brought up right after the memorial tape Ya yeah a little bit of these are the stakes. Are you know one day or a guest you know could be up there. I want to be up there with you. Know Stars and Stripes the national anthem playing. And all of you cheering for your next president. That's the idea all right. So let's talk about it all right so do some personal reasons. You entered the race late later later. Sure Yeah let's not make a normative judgment and let us later than some others later than some forty or fifty dollars by the time you announce. The field was chockablock with politicians tech entrepreneurs billionaires to New York. Mayor's what made you decide. That was still important to get in the race. Well as you know we were ready to go. After the midterms in two thousand eighteen we had a date. We were at a roll out plan and my wife. Diane was diagnosed two weeks before the launch with uterine offering cancer. And that sort of thing that brings your feet back to ground We decided the best thing was to pay attention to that into her. I I still think that was the right decision. We celebrated thirty five years of marriage last May and she is cancer free. Meanwhile the you know the the field continued to evolve ladder. The candidates are friends of mine and yours but frankly Lee you know. We have a moment where obviously job one is to rid the country of this presidency but I think ah that's yes absolutely critical because our democracies in in trouble but I think the question right now is beyond on the character of the candidates this time. It's the character of the country because if we don't deliver after we rid the the country of this presidency. I think our democracy is still in jeopardy and because once I was with President Obama talking talking about the things I liked and didn't like about campaigning and I told him I like everything about campaigning. Except two things asking people for money and the bragging aggie and he said get over it so in that spirit I will say. I'm the no one else in this race as the range of life and leadership experience that I do building bridges to make change that lasts and I think that less is what we need right now. Are you just watching his base. And mainly these fucking fucking morons. I could fucking crush every one of them I could amy. Klobuchar was the one taken on pita. I WanNa take on Pete Mayor South Bend Indiana. Where does he bother you? So he doesn't. I'm doing your this is your voice. I like Mayor Pete. He's been on this show. I think is great. I'm channeling you in my mind. Ah so no. You weren't on the debate stage on Tuesday but they were each and you have to be white to be on the debate stage since Nari. It wasn't wasn't now I don't think he was a requirement but it was a an outcome. It was an outcome so they were each asked. Why are you the best candidate to defeat trump and I do think you know everybody cares about what happens the day after trump is gone but one reason you know I would argue this race? Hasn't settled out and left an opening for someone to enter the race. Now is there is a bunch of people jocking to make the best electability argument and none of them have hold. So what is is your electability case. Look I'm the opposite of Donald Trump. You know he grew up rich. I grew up poor everything he is touched. He's broken broken everything I've touched. I've tried to make better than I think. I have a lot to show for it. He's been in the private sector. I've been in the private sector but I have actually sleep built things that less and you know as governor. We came out of recession number one in America in student achievement ninety eighty nine percent of our residents have health insurance ninety nine percent We're number one. In veteran services energy efficiency in entrepreneurial neural activity a twenty five year employment high and the highest bond rating in history. So we do things that are ambitious in nature but we are humbled enough to bring people in so you can get changed that lasts. He does stuff that is all about the performance. Art Lives to divide. I as far as I can tell and very little of worth lasts except if we have another four years a democracy in tatters so I think well I guess the only way to say it is about as opposite as you can get and the other thing is you know. I'm very very slow to burn. He can set him off like that. But you know you gotta deal you know in the world of politics with folks who were agree with you and those who don't and keep your head and listen and be respectful and still drive your agenda and I can do that. And he can't so America America can decide but I think we've got a pretty good choice so governor of Massachusetts the second blank governor ever elected in the country is that right. That's right You led the civil rights. Division at the Department of Justice correct you also spent time in the private sector and I wanna I wanna read the headline. It's a mean headline but I do think people are GonNa WanNa know your response to this line of attack. This was the headline of the daily beast. Big Oil subprime lenders divall.

Nancy Zepa losy appointed these seven impeachment. Managers who will prosecute the case against president trump in the senate. That's Adam Schiff Jerry. Nadler Zoe lofgren. Hakeem Jeffries Val demings Jason Synchro and Sylvia Garcia. And after that all hell broke loose. I the house released a treasure trove of documents. They had received from Parnis a Mr Potato tatum ahead who wished on a monkey pod. It'd be a background actor in the Irishman and then after that finish shooting realize he wasn't allowed to go back to the toy chest so he got worked for Rudy Giuliani. Aw Long Way to go. Thank you coming with me Parnis lest we forget was arrested on October ninth at Dulles Airport with a one way get out of the country after being charged with felonies for funneling illegal donations to Republican candidates and campaigns. And then this week left. Parnasse sat down with Rachel Maddow to talk about his involvement in the criminal conspiracy at the heart of trump's impeachment and he implicated Rudy Giuliani Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo a former secretary of energy. Rick Perry Vice President Mike Pence and the second worst person to ever attended Jeffrey Epstein Dinner Party. Donald Trump love is clearly bad news. So I take no pleasure in welcoming to the resistance. It's worth noting. All this happened as the nonpartisan government wash shrugged. Gao found that the trump administration committed a crime when it withheld the eight Ukraine as part of the scheme Help implement two very big deal. The evidence now released by Parnis chose firsthand knowledge of these crimes by trump because parnasse was the hand committing the crimes. There was even a little crime to do list. That parnes jot down on ritz-carlton Vienna stationary which is so on the nose. It's another reminder that we live in a simulation and the artificial intelligence constructing our reality is depressed about our failure to solve climate change. Which is the point of the game? One of the note said and I quote gets Alinsky to announce that Biden in case will be investigated which confirms what we all know. Trump was focused on abusing his office. Joe Biden who was a sweet old man in no condition to deal with the mean on top of that there were what's at messages from Robert Hyde. Who The New York Times described as and this is not Oughta joke and erotic X. landscaper? I've said this before. But trump is trying to commit crimes on a grand international international scale with just sea level Fargo characters. Also what do you do to become an ex landscaper. You'RE PARTISAN HIDE AKA Kylo Ren and stimpy headquarters had quite a conversation over TEX hide. Wrote wrote that. He was monitoring America's ambassador Ukraine. Marie Ivanovich who is getting in the way of their Biden scheme. He wrote a bunch of messages about our movements. How he wanted to bribe members of our security team Rela- her moments which are terrifying in conjunction with trump's phone calls as Alinsky which imply that the ambassador was quote going to go through some things which to this day we have never learned and what that meant? Now we don't yet know these texts means and hide has the energy of someone who was kicked out of Charlie Sheen's entourage in two thousand eleven for being too on even but I'm sure you've gone which was rushed out of Ukraine by the State Department soon after because they were planning some sort of surprise party anyway anyway when partners sat down with Rachel Maddow Generations Lesbian. Walter Cronkite who sometimes gives a little too much context. Then this president trump know exactly what was going on He was aware of all movements. I wouldn't do anything without the consent. The Rudy Giuliani or the president. So obviously yeah. I think it's worth being skeptical of the store. There's one thing we know about trump he doesn't care about consent But what what are you doing. The hard reality reality of our existence harness also said this about his relationship with trump. I mean we're not friends. I mean when you say friends and then watch football games together within within hotdogs wholesome little conception of friendship when Vaughan said Hi to Donald Trump and if you people bowl on your fico for it I'm not in on this one. I'm just skipping it. There was one thing I found fascinating. which is when von walked away? Trump had a smile on his face like he was a seven year old Jewish boy in one thousand nine hundred fifty s Brooklyn who just met Sandy Koufax so many of our problems start right now with lonely broken godless divorced or emotionally divorced old men seeking meaning through attention money or importance of any any sort. And All I'm saying is Bruce springsteen needs to go to the White House singer Song and tell trump how cool it is that he wants witnesses at the trial. The harness also had this to say about our vice. President and Ronald Reagan's tether Mike Mike Pence the announcement was the at that time. Because of the inauguration that pets would not show up. Nobody would show up to ration- unless he announced an investigation into the Joe Biden No. US officials particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come. Is President. Mike Pence no wonder Ukraine didn't announce the investigation I. I wouldn't want Mike Pence at my big day. Either in part two of his interview with Matt Outlet Partners Compared trump to a cult leader. I would say this if you're going going to join a cult at least join one of the fun ones with mushrooms and sex This is a cult where you get yelled at by malignant narcissist until you have to get interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on your way to prison. Just a Shitty Colt partners that he was in. DC for two years and never left the trump hotel and he went on to add the toilets kept me in there. You flush once and it's all gone just incredible elsewhere. You might have to flush for twenty or thirty. Nine harness then went on to say that firing revanche was directly connected to getting officials in Ukraine to announce a Biden investigation. Here's what he had to say next wasn't supposed to be corruption. Invested announcement has to be about Joe Biden to buy that. Recently he said the name by needs is to be spoken with us. That's always. They did not want them to announce corruption investigations or anticorruption efforts. That was not it. It had to be about Out Biden they had to save five all right. We have a lot to cover tonight but before we get to our guests in the last few weeks a number of candidates including who in Castro Astro Cory Booker and Marianne Williamson withdrew from the twenty twenty primary and we wanted to highlight those.

"Also don't know whether that push for witnesses will be successful given these credibility credibility issues we've been talking about with parks. Given the potential incentive. He has to inflate perhaps his importance to to this investigation allegation to other investigations just in pursuit of some kind of leniency for the other legal issues that he faces is that a consideration for Democrats in terms of potentially pushing thing for him as a witness that that. Hey maybe if you look a little further if you put him more under the microscope there might be some more unflattering stuff here that detracts from from the stories telling. Yeah I think it this Steve. Because if he comes forward and says something particularly if it's under oath in the Senate that are then able to be disproven even if ninety nine percent of the things things that he says are borne out by documents and are accurate if that remaining one percent is able to be successfully questioned that's GonNa Hand Republicans a pretty powerful argument to say. This guy can't be trusted. You know you're bringing in fake witnesses and that really. All of his testimony should be discounted actually blow back on Democrats that having been said. This just is the fact of the matter when you have unscrupulous characters who are recounting in investigations. What they know? Oh I don't think we're necessarily going to see. Democrats dismissed out of hand. Just because there are questions about his credibility I think the question then politically becomes these Republicans were always talking about potential swing voters when it comes to particular witnesses when it comes to the the ultimate question of trump's fate but I'm thinking this week of Martha Martha mcsally In her sort of Dismissive we'll put it that way. Dismissive response to a reporter asking about this. Susan Collins from Maine. She didn't seem I'm too eager to go down this road. Does it suggest that those swing Republican Senators Democrats need to change the scope of the trial have not been swayed by by what par and this is put forward. Well there have more work to do but all of these new details that are coming to light just as the senators are starting. Their trial are putting putting more pressure on Republicans to consider having witnesses. Because it's making it harder for them to argue. Look we already know what happened. The House had their opportunity And and interviewed people. There's no need to relive that. Now we're seeing there's new stuff we really didn't know about and their legitimate reasons why that wasn't included rooted in the house process namely the fact that the White House completely prohibited any of its officials from testifying before Congress so. I don't think that we have yet. Seen some of those vulnerable. Senators give categorical comments. That they do want and are willing to allow witnesses is but they are suggesting some open to it. Particularly Susan Collins and Mitt Romney and we'll have to see in the in the first couple of weeks of the trial whether Democrats are able to create a compelling enough case that ultimately they will vote against their leader Mitch McConnell with Democrats to allow additional witnesses and evidence and by this time next week we will be in full swing.

Trump denies knowing Giuliani associate Lev Parnas
"President trump is on the attack in predicting a quick Senate impeachment trial as the non-partisan independent arm of the government called the Government Accountability Office or Gao concluded that the trump administration broke the law when it was held security aid to Ukraine last year ear and CNN's Kaitlan Collins reports. Now the president is also continuing to deny that he knows a Rudy Giuliani associate who calls himself. Trump's asset in Ukraine today new revelations or complicating with the White House had hoped would be an easy senate trial very quickly to host a non-partisan partisan federal watchdog agency has determined the trump administration broke the law when it withheld military aid to Ukraine according to the Government Accountability Ability Office blocking that military assistance violated a law that limits the president's ability to withhold money already approved by Congress and faithful execution of the law does not permit the president to substitute his own policy. Priorities for those Congress has enacted into law today. The White House defended the move. Move by saying the nearly four hundred million dollars in aid was eventually released. I'm very glad that Ukraine got its aid and got it within the deadline. While officials aren't expected to be prosecuted for the violation. The release is fueling more questions ahead of trump's senate impeachment trial. This is a bombshell as we head into the Senate Trial Democrats say it underscores the importance of having witnesses and new documents and the trial this reinforces again. The need for documents and witnesses in the Senate the White House has spent the last several days finalising its defense but new revelations made by a recently recently indicted associate of Rudy. Giuliani's could turn their plans upside down today. Trump denied knowing love Parnis despite having multiple photos goes with him other than I guess pictures taken which I do. Thousands of people in the president was aware of his efforts to get dirt on the Biden's and was in close coordination with Giuliani. But today trump said he doesn't think they've ever spoken never had a conversation that I remember with him. I don't need the help of a man I and I never met before. Despite parnassus claim he did nothing without the consent of Giuliani when it came to Ukraine trump stood by his personal attorney. Today today is is somebody that frankly having him on my side was a great honor for me and it has been a great honor for me now Jake. Trump trump was also asked about a letter. That Rudy Giuliani had sent to then. Ukrainian president elect Zielinski saying that he had president trump's knowledge and consent to ask ask for a meeting with him. This letter released by House Intelligence Committee this week. Trump said he had no knowledge of that letter but really Guiliani had written written it and sent it.

Critics are saying that those costs outweigh the benefits of this new deal. especially considering trump wanted bigger structural changes from China. That weren't included. uh-huh some updates to something. We discussed on Monday earlier this week. We told you that Texas Governor Greg. Abbott was taking advantage of trump executive order to completely block the settlement of refugees in a state. Really Nice Guy. Well he's not doing that anymore. Because on Wednesday a federal judge suspended the trump policy on grounds that. It's probably illegal. The judge says the order will likely be found unconstitutional because it puts authority over immigration policy in the hands of states and localities rather than the federal government the injunction and more remain in place while a legal challenge against the please out. It's been brought by three faith based nonprofit that works on refugee resettlement helps. Now who's in the right here.

Your father loves you so much he wants to kill someone with a sword for you obviously see this is a stunt and the judge is not taking it seriously. Some advice for you Mr Ostrom. I know this is an insanely difficult time. But if you're not happy with the custody ruling you can always get get more time with your trial by simply putting on a mask and pretending to be their elderly British nanny and lastly some more good news.

"In exciting citing. Wow this should have happened a long time ago but let's just shut up and enjoy it news. The Newly Democratic Virginia House legislature has voted to ratify the equal rights amendment. That makes it the the thirty eighth and final state needed to ratify the constitutional amendment that would guarantee equal rights to all Americans regardless of sex. I've heard more train in this job for my entire life before it. It's my favorite sound effects. We have ever done Okay so the air horns Are totally warranted because this is a huge victory and also a watershed moment for the women's rights activists who've been fighting for this for nearly a century so house speaker Eileen filler corn. She is the state's first female speaker. And you know the four hundred and one your history of Virginia's state legislature so she said quote for the women of Virginia Jinya in the women of America the resolution has finally passed every Democrat and four Republicans voted to ratify the amendment. Here's Virginia House delegate. Danika Rome speaking just before the vote took place as I think about what brings people together as I think about. Where do we find common ground? I just think back home and I think to the fact that my mom and I we probably agree on about three pieces of public policy. If you worked forty hours a week spiel to make enough money to take care of yourself. Scottish independence ever seen someone come in ratification of ignorance in in such an easy obvious thing that should have existed in the world long ago but unfortunately proponents of the er a are still in for a lengthy legal battle due to the original deadline to get the amendment ratified in the US Constitution. Akilah can you just explain what this fight actually might look like. Yeah so let me just give a little background I the idea idea of the IRA has been around for almost one hundred years. And it finally went to states to ratify in the seventies after Congress finally allowed that but there was is the caveat of a deadline and so basically thirty eight states had to ratify it within a certain time period Thirty eight by the way is three fourths of the states. In this country there are fifty S. Really thirty point five. But that's just math any who that's the threshold at a new constitutional amendment. They missed the deadline by several decades and with Virginia were at thirty eight states. But as I said the deadline is past And now some of the states that ratified it previously are saying that they want to take it back so those those are the potential legal issues. But there's a question about the deadline and whether it can be enforced because there actually isn't anything legally binding in the text about the deadline and Dan Yari supporters say that states can't really on ratify what they've already ratified. There are no take backs rate so era supporters say. Let's get this thing going but I imagine that they're probably going to be challenged on it. Yeah I mean right now. We have this progress in Virginia. That is happening. But it definitely sounds like the constitutional amendment status of it will be decided Ed later in court or sure. Well we will keep you all posted but that is not all of our Virginia News. Today got one more story to share yesterday.

"On today's show. We have our impeach. Managers will be talking about the crazy. The interview with left basically gave the entire game receipts names. He named everybody. So we'll definitely be talking about that a bit later. Then Virginia Passes Equal Rights Amendment and as always some headlines The house of Representatives has formally turned in their book report on President Trump and his alleged crimes after a long back and fourth the house. Deliver the articles of impeachment. You might remember those were obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. So they delivered those to the Senate on Wednesday approved seven Democrats to serve as impeachment managers the trial congratulations members of the house right. I've taken over the soundboard at Wata dropping sick Alice Cooper tunes on you all right before we go further here. Let's really quick recap on the role of impeachment managers. What they actually do share So basically these individuals will serve as the prosecutors of the houses case in the Senate. They're going to argue for trump's removal during the trial and impeachment house speaker. Nancy Pelosi selected seven seven members. That's compared to the thirteen member group in the trial of president. Bill Clinton back in nineteen ninety nine. The emphasis is on litigators. The emphasis is on comfort level in the courtroom. The emphasis is making strongest possible case to protect and defend our constitution to seek the truth for the American the people. I'm very proud and honored that the seven members distinguished members have accepted this serious responsibility that was explosives discussing the members and sort of why she ended up selecting them. Let's run through the starting lineup really quickly. Let's do it all right. There's Adam Schiff. The House Intelligence Committee chairman who has been deeply involved in the process so far then Jerry Nadler the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee the person who helped draft the actual articles following shifts work. Yeah these seem sort like natural choices given what they're doing you know. Start to finish on your television in the committee hearings. These are the impeachment boys as we're referring to them now. The restless includes Zoe lofgren senior member of the House. Judiciary Committee interestingly. She was a judiciary committee staffer during the Nixon impeachment and a member of the committee during the Clinton impeachment so again make sense that she would be involved in this too Hekim Jeffries. He's the chairman of the House. Democratic Caucus fell demings a member of the intelligence and judiciary committees these. She has an interesting background compared to the other folks that are in the mix here law enforcement also first woman to serve as Orlando's chief of police before she was in Congress. She's hard on that law and order And then there's a couple of freshmen. There's Jason Crowe who's a freshman member of the House Armed Services Committee and finally another freshman member Sylvia Sylvia Garcia. She's from house judiciary. We'll have to figure out an easy demonic device for this next time because a lot of lot of initials happening out the other so the articles articles have been formerly walked over to the Senate but there are still some unresolved issues about whether there will be witnesses and recent news has added a little bit urgency to that. Yeah that's for sure. I mean we listened to this on yesterday show but the House released a set of documents on Tuesday that further implicate trump in this whole Ukraine scheme. They came from left Parnis. Who who is this peculiar character associated with Rudy Giuliani? Trump's lawyer. Another one of these random guys whose name you see everywhere that is in the Mixon both dictating how they were gonNA execute this Ukraine kind of bribery scheme and also involved in foreign policy. When he shouldn't really be among the initial items that were released from partners was a note from a Ritz Carlton in Vienna saying literally quote get Zilenski to announce that the Biden case will be investigated so this is written down? What the impeachment? Trial was seeking to accuse trump of through tons and tons of witness interviews and testimony. Like it's just really dumb Watergate. Yeah everything has a literal paper trail with handwritten notes like he might as well sign them the different rate And there may be more to come also from all of this like the house is saying that they could release more of the documents in the future. We're were meant understand that this isn't the end of this and there was a really pretty shocking interview with Parnis on Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night and he basically went into great detail about the fact that trump was aware of what he was doing. What Giuliani was doing the whole time? The highest levels of government were essentially dictating and in on this entire scheme and he also stated something that has become. It's pretty apparent. Throughout the course of this investigation that what trump and the administration were seeking out of Ukraine was never this sort of rooting out of corruption will always always about the Biden's and always about sort of over a political rival. What do you I think the main inaccuracy or the main lie? That's being told that you feel like you can correct that. The president didn't know what was going on President then trump know exactly what was going on He was aware of all my movements He I wouldn't do anything without the consent. The Rudy Giuliani or the president. I have no one tenth. I have no reason to speak to any of these officials. I mean they they have no reason to speak to me. My presence Alinsky his inner circle or minister Mr of alcohol for all these people or President prochet will meet with me. Who might they were told to meet with me? And that's the secret that they're trend. Well if love's GonNa tell it then he's gotTa tell it off a big fan of usher's. Confessions Album seem live so anyway this this begs the question. Where are we at on the witnesses? Thing is Mitt Romney just Mitt Romney being like. Oh I wish people would do the right thing. I'M NOT GONNA do anything to force honestly. That's what I'm going to believe until I see more but basically this group Republican senators including Romney Susan Collins of mcaliskey Lamar Alexander. They all wanted this vote on whether to call witnesses farther down the road. The whole fight that we've talked about on the show. Previously was Democrats. Wanted that promise up front and wanted to hear from people before you know. This whole trial got kicked off. Now these senators these Republicans are saying that they got that for later on and according to Collins are going to get it but man you know a Susan Collins Silence Promise is is not the same as the promise from everybody else in Congress or in our in our personal lives and then there was this counter pitch from other people like Ted Cruz. Who's who told Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell okay? If we're going to have witnesses like John Bolton come and testify seemingly that would be pretty damning to the president we also need to get get witnesses like Hunter Biden in sort of a quid pro quo type scenario for her part Collins responded to the news on Wednesday by seeing that the revelation of this. This at this time suggested that the house hadn't done a complete job in their gave. The note here is that. This material was subpoenaed last October so there wasn't effort to get it and a judge only granted permission for it to be shared with investigators. Pretty recently said the timing of it is is not because they they were like. Oh Gee I don't know what to do here yeah season. I hope you heard that hope you know that now. Well what more do we know now. About how the trial's actually GONNA go. I hear rumours. Ted Cruz has duct tape his mouth. Wow Yeah what is the word That is exactly what I've heard. The things could change. It's basically you know any. AMC theater type senators have to remain in their seats the whole time. There's no it is rule. Well I think you could go to the bathroom. Yeah through whatever I mean. Listen so let's go to more stringent theater and others. I understand anyway. There's also a rule about no electronic devices so none of the senators can be texting posting grabbing throughout the trial proceedings can be me. Yeah but you know. After all of this there's going to be more or procedural stuff over the next couple of days and then we're finally anticipating that the trial will formally begin next Tuesday. We'll keep you updated on that and you know what type of theater rules.

Parnas presented to Ukrainians as speaking on Trump's behalf
"You're really at the time was the general. The first thing I did this to introduce myself and tell them I'm here on behalf of really Giuliani beyond the president of the United States. And I'd like to put you on speakerphone for you. Know to confirm which we did we put you on. The phone rudy relate to him basically that we were there on behalf of the president of the United States. And you were there to speak on president. Trump's behalf exhibited those exact words. Mr Parnasse says that when he was taking meetings to advance this scheme taking meetings with various government officials in Ukraine he says it was a regular occurrence. It was the way those meetings started. He would put rudy. Giuliani on phone on the speakerphone in the room and he would say explicitly. Mr Giuliani would say explicitly that as the president's personal attorney he could affirm that left Parnis. was there air at that meeting. In Ukraine to speak on behalf of the President of the United States Donald Trump in May of last year may twenty nineteen. Mr Giuliani started speaking with reporters about his plans to travel himself to Ukraine to try to enlist the Ukrainian government's assistance to help hoped his client president trump. Basically in his re-election effort he said he was going to Ukraine to try to get them to announce investigations into Vice President Biden because that would be very very helpful to his client in the resulting firestorm of criticism. Mr Giuliani's trip was called off in May when he called off the trip. Mr Giuliani Johny made public statements. Criticizing the new government of Ukraine saying that Ukraine's new president was surrounded by enemies of the United States and for Ukraine that it was a really big deal right Ukraine. A country at war with Russia is a country very much dependent on both the reality and the perception of their having strong support from the United States government. And so when Mr Giuliani as the president's personal attorneys started making public claims the new Ukrainian president was surrounded by enemies of the United States of America. That's why he wasn't going to Ukraine at that point. The Ukrainian government kind of freaked out that kind of criticism from the new administration for their new new president in Ukraine. And that's a potential death sentence for their country so at the time that happened left part was in Ukraine in Kiev. At the time all of that happened and he told me today that he was tasked by Rudy Giuliani in that moment to crank up the pressure on the government of Ukraine to make even more insistent and obvious is an even more onerous this threat and this demand that Ukraine must announce investigations into Joe Biden. Or else it. Did you meet with Ukrainian official name. Sergei Schaefer Circuit Schaefer is a very senior aide to presidents Alinsky. It has been reported as far as we understand from public reporting that you conveyed to Mr Schaffer. The exact quid pro bowl that you wanted Celeski Alinsky to announce investigations into Joe Biden or military aid would not be released to Ukraine. Is that accurate. It was a little bit more than that Aw Basically The message that that was supposed to die gave Sergei Schaefer was a very harsh message that was told to be to give it to him in a very harsh way. A not in a pleasant way to give it to harshly mayor Guiliani Rudy told me After a meeting the president the White House he called me. His message was wasn't just military. It was all eight. Basically the relationships would be sour. You would stop giving him any kind of aid that unless that there was an announcement made several several demands at that point a the most important one is the announcement of the bite. Ministration did you also convey convey to him that the US government would stop showing support for mistress Alinsky. They wouldn't attend the inauguration those that was the biggest thing. Actually that was the that was the main Wasn't because at that time you have to understand the way you create now is for presents alinsky winning on that platform being a young president and not really having any experience the number one end being at war with Russia at the time the number one thing for them was not even eight and I know it sounds crazy but it was more of a support for the president resident by having a White House. Visit by having a big inauguration by having all the dignitaries there that was the key and at that time There were already aware because of their Conversations with the I guess what the embassy that President Vice President Pence was supposed to come to the inauguration was already discussed and they were replanning and now they were just working on days. That would be good for him at our meeting. I was very very heated. Conversation from our part to him. Basically telling What needs to be done? I mean basically me and at the at the at in the conversation. I told him that if he doesn't the announcement it was the key at that time because of the nation the pence would not show up.

"lev" Discussed on Impeachment: A Daily Podcast
"I'm Ilya Marritz filling in for Brian. Lehrer here's a new development in the Ukraine affair that broke last last night concerning something that happened. Back in November as the House of Representatives was holding hearings they're all those televised testimonies from career diplomats. Who are concerned that the White House had withheld military aid in order to press the Ukrainians to investigate burris? Ma The energy company that Hunter Biden Sat on the board of well now the New York Times and the Washington Post are reporting that in the midst of those very hearings someone was looking into Burris Ma and it was the Russians Russians according to area one California based cybersecurity company the GRU the Russian Intelligence Agency launched a campaign to Hack Burris. He's Ma during the hearings. The area one report doesn't provide a lot of detail but it does note that the GRU's efforts were quote successful another other development pertinent impeachment. Yesterday the House Intelligence Committee is now in possession of live tarnishes cell phone partners of course is that Ukrainian Green Ian American businessman Associated Rudy Giuliani. who was indicted on charges of election? Meddling his lawyer has been trying for a few weeks to get information over to the house. Intelligence Committee he wants house investigators to invite his client partners to testify And from call records released in the course of the House inquiry we know that Parnassus and Giuliani were in frequent contact. So what else might be on that phone. Lastly this morning democratic members of the the house filed into a meeting with their leader. Nancy Pelosi The Washington Post reports that during the meeting. She did not name picks for impeachment managers to argue for Removal Oval in the Senate trial but she did say there would be a vote tomorrow on those as yet unnamed representatives. Plenty to digest and joining me. Now is his Quinta Jurassic managing editor of Law Fair. She has a new article out in the Atlantic as well predicting that majority leader Mitch. McConnell is aiming to make the Senate trial trial boring by design Quinta. Thank you so much for being here. Welcome to WNYC. Thanks for having me so before we get here. Atlantic Atlantic piece. I want to start with those headlines. First of all what do you make of this news. Russia Hacking Barista in the midst of the impeachment hearings in the House. So I want to be careful about what I say because as you kind of hinted there is some Lack of clarity around what particularly the Gr you may have obtained tained if it obtained anything at all as you say the area one report says the efforts were successful. But it doesn't really say what success means So with that on the table table I think this you know it. Looks like a potential repeat of two thousand sixteen playing out with twenty twenty. What we we saw in terms of trump's efforts to apparently push Ukraine to provide negative information on potential general election challenger? Joe Biden really has always seemed to me like an effort by trump kind of reproduce the conditions that helped him win the two thousand sixteen election where the press was is constantly reporting on new information contained in Hillary Clinton's emails and the emails of her campaign staff which of course were hacked and then released by the Russian Russian government and now it seems that the GRU Russian military intelligence may be trying to help trump with that effort Poking being around for possible derogatory information in this Ukrainian energy company on whose board Hunter Biden sat read and just to be clear from what we understand vice. President Joe Biden does not appear to have intervened to help Barista in any way quite the contrary but I suppose it would be possible that hackers could still turn up messages or documents or information that if they were released and packaged in the right way. could still sort of look incriminating to Hunter Biden or in some way damage Damage those who say that the vice president acted correctly and that anyway. Why are we talking about this? We should be talking about the trump administration and the way they tried to leverage Ukraine. That's exactly right on as you say. There's no evidence that Joe Biden. Did anything wrong here. But the conversation and the united ended states about Hunter Biden at. This point has been so kind of warped frankly by the falsehoods that the president has been in putting out that. I think you know you can imagine hypothetically say that Russian Intelligence were successful in obtaining some kind of emails that may not even be bad you know might just any email read out of context can mean a lot of different things That you know if those are put out out sort of into the media space could be seized on by the president as you know look. This is hard evidence of terrible wrongdoing by Hunter Biden even if it shows does nothing of the sort because frankly that's what he's already been doing without any additional information right so let's pivot now to live Parnasse Sir because this is to me kind of the big curveball Of the whole thing right now which is one of the four men who he's facing trial in the southern district of New York Love Parnasse Seems to really want to work with the government around this impeachment inquiry the trial the charges. He faces trial are sort of ten somewhat related to The subject of the impeachment inquiry but also kind of separate. It's a campaign INTERF- I kind of campaign finance campaign interference charge PARNIS is now starting to turn over records to the house. What what does that mean especially given the fact that really the action is shifting from the House to the Senate in impeachment? There are two questions here. One one is as you say. What does this mean for the impeachment inquiry and then the other is sort of? What does this mean for left part US further for the impeachment inquiry? I think it's an open question It is noteworthy. That parnis lawyer has really been pushing for him to kind of take center stage in the House inquiry. He's been tweeting. He has a Hashtag which is Hashtag. Lev speak the he really seems to want to position his client as someone who's WHO's Capable of kind of breaking the whole case wide open. The counterpoint is that ah the House Intelligence Committee. Just frankly doesn't seem that interested. They haven't really bitten on any of these suggestions. That suggests talk to me. A couple of things one might be that frankly they. They wanted to keep impeachment moving right And they didn't WanNa hold things up and as part of that. That may indicate that. They felt that they didn't really need this additional information. From Parnis to make the case that they I already had enough damning material from Giuliani's public statements from all the testimony of the various as witnesses from the text messages turned over by Kurt. Volcker the former Special Representative in Ukraine that. They just didn't need us now. Though I think Parnis is I would read what his defense counsel is doing as perhaps trying to play the Michael Cohen Card. Right and say Look I. I know you know I've been indicted. You may think very poorly of me because of what I'm alleged to have done but let me redeem myself right. Let me show you that. I'm actually good guy and sort of positioning his client in a in a better light which would presumably require complete clete cooperation? Right it would mean sharing everything that every kind of investigator wants to look at and and giving Testimony in like coming fully clean like you wouldn't be able to be selective and still redeem himself. Would he well depends what actor you're thinking of right. So in terms of Congress they might be happy to just say you know. We'll take this information from you and that sort of all we need In the case of the prosecutors who are considering Arneses case they may not be so forgiving and may push harder to get more from him. He has pleaded not guilty and said he will fight the charges which include illegal campaign contributions includes Bringing Russian money into the American political system. And it's very serious stuff and very interesting and intriguing stuff. Does he risk if he really still intends to fight those those charges could he damage himself by cooperating with Congress. That's an interesting question I confess. I'm not actually sure just because I think it would depend on the procedural posture of the case I will say he does seem to be playing very odd game here right. I mean I compared to Michael Cohen. Michael Cohen of course pleaded guilty And so was in a different position. I I do think that this depends not only on how prosecutors handle ARNESES MRS case but also how the House Intelligence Committee wants to investigate going forward. Of course impeachment will be going to the Senate as we've discussed but that doesn't mean that the house else will stop investigating and so you could imagine perhaps if the House Intelligence Committee Keeps investigating the Ukraine matter that they may find use for or the material that Parnasse has put forward but again that's not the same thing as the prosecutor is smiling on him one more question on the partisan. This is something. That's kind of intrigued. Me For a while you referred to his. You mentioned his lawyer. Joseph Bondy who Has Been really active on twitter around the HASHTAG. Let live speak speak I've seen him in court He cuts kind of a colorful figure and his background is entirely in marijuana law. All from what. I can tell sort of cases concerning marijuana businesses marijuana proprietors. It's kind of this emerging area as more and more states legalize or partially legalize and that to me makes a really noteworthy contrast with Michael Cohen. Where he had You know former former high level prosecutors people from big firms Life Partners has chosen to go with a really different kind of a lawyer. Does that tell us something. Well I think I would just say that. It is an advantage to everyone in these high profile cases and Franklin any case for everyone to be well represented right right The system works best when defendants have good lawyers. And so I don't want to speak to whatever personal decisions uh-huh love partners might have made but definitely the fact that his council doesn't have a background in high profile Criminal Cases May mean that we should look differently on some of the strategic decisions that he's making all right. So let's turn now to the the action or inaction I suppose In the House and Senate because we seem to be kind of in a holding pattern And you have written that any trial l. in the Senate is likely to be limited to the substance of what was already surfaced in the houses impeachment probe and. I think that's really interesting because as we've been talking about for the past few minutes news keep sort of overtaking the stuff that was surfaced Those many weeks ago. So how do you see this playing out exactly so the real problem here is that Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader has been pretty clear..
"lev" Discussed on Coming Out Stories
"Little weird but he was a good guy and then the priests she is an openly lesbian priests And it's Sir Piscopo Kalian. She's like since gone onto become. I don't entirely understand how the tiers of religion but she's very important in some way. You have to write you names in this book that the churches had is since forever and ever and we were the second queer couple in that book the first male queer couple in the buck. Yes that was pretty exciting making history man how to now sometimes to talk to people about coming out at work is relevant for some people but essentially you were on your roane isolated. Because you're a writer. Yeah our through Jamie and I've had a lot a lot of odd jobs but Yeah Working Emma on as a writer. It's never been too big a deal. Obviously it influences my work a lot and I've never tried to hide it. I wasn't married when my first book came out so couldn't put husband in my bio but it's in my all my byles now. It says you live in Lower Manhattan with a smoker. Yeah we have a really small catches cut short stubby legs. Thanks very small apartment so he got it in a proportionate cat anyway. Do you think you actually sort of on your gayness in terms of your career has no not at all. I don't know about thrive. Certainly publishing is a complicated place and it has a lot of work to do to really become an accepting community. I mean there's stats released every year for American publishing in terms of how many books by people of Color by queer people are published every year. The numbers are still very very low and it has to do with the fact that the people who work in publishing are primarily white women until you get to the very top tiers. Here's a mental out of them. are men suddenly so surprising Home and I know I'm shocked but it's getting better and and I think that a lot of publishing is really making an effort but There was recently in adult publishing I don't know if you saw this piece the New Yorker but you should read it this story about essentially a man who This this straight white man who managed to get really far in the business despite lying incessantly about having cancer like crazy big lies about people dying. He's a bestseller books of movie. And all that and so much of it seemed to be that he could get away with it because he was a straight white man so just before we end it might be worth mentioning your book. Jack yes same to young teenagers. I mean it's the hope that it will will help young. LGBT people. And so. I mean I like to say about the book. It's not coming Out Book It's a staying out book and I think that's an important thing to talk about because even after we come out even after we have these stories we have other stories about being in Queer too and I think that those stories are important because those are the ones that really. That's our life and the coming out is like really starting our life and that's how you how you enter the world almost and that's why those stories are important but let's not forget like you still gotta keep living your life and it's not like the moment you're out and like you've dealt with the process of coming out everything is shits and giggles swear. Swear on because it's gripe I so it's not like everything is just in giggles like rainbows and magic after that. There's you're still living in a straight world L.. And so so much of this book was about dealing with that. And it's about the fact that you know this this kid who is out and happy and proud and having sex with a lot of men is still living in a world where people are trying to tell him. What kind of gay person he has to be? We're all these straight people are telling him. No no no. That's not the right way to Ck. You have to be gay in a way that looks straight and that sort of thing that I really wanted to talk about this book. I call it the glass closet so that could be okay. Yeah the coming out of the glass claws at the the idea that even if the if you come out and you come out in a liberal place New York City where the book takes place a lot like my school cool. You'll be surrounded by people who say things like. Oh Yeah you know I love. I love gay people. I'm pro gay marriage. I have no problem with it but the moment you start are doing something. That's a little too wrong. I think with Manet's being effeminate with women. It's being to Birch the moment you start wearing wearing glitter. All of a sudden those same people will say something to A. I love gay people but to have to be so in your face about it. And that's that's something that I think we deal with even in New York City like regularly like all the damn time and that is I think a straight culture trying to tell us what the right way to be gay. And that's what I call the glass causing this idea that if you step outside all of a sudden the that's when you get shamed again yes fascinating own ourselves then we the way you wanNA use. There's no wrong way to be gay and finally if only if you call vice in your book anyway but if you were advising young person who had the courage or whatever circumstances to be able to come out and they were worried about it what advice would you give. Well the it's it's in the book there is A. How do I come out a letter? And the way that Jack Answers it in the way I would answer it as well is essentially like you gotta find your own brand you got to figure out like what is the out the coming out version of you and like maybe especially teams today like maybe it's a heartfelt instagram post Or maybe it is doing you know kind of the way I did it which is just like one day being like. Oh my God. That guy's so cute food To your friend and like not expecting a giant reaction and I think real friends people who genuinely love. You will give you the reaction that you are supposed that you're asking for in the way you come out so an instagram post people will will post something like Oh my God so proud of you heart heart but if you're just saying you know that guy is so cute maybe your best friend will just like squeeze your hand to be like. Yeah he is and that so you need yeah. I think you have to think about what you want. People's reactions to be and again this gets the idea of coming out as its performance of thing for straight people But I think that when you're coming out tell yourself what you want people's ideal reaction to be until yourself. What not the reaction you fear? The worst is and then expect something in the middle and be prepared for things to change but real friends are going to give you exactly what.
"lev" Discussed on Coming Out Stories
"Is coming out. Stories cost about one of the most important conversations of your life. I'm go swell from gay man who ended up eventually getting married by a rabbi and a High Pagan Priestess. You're going to hear. Now from the author Love Rosen was twelve or thirteen. I went to a very very small school for Grade School. There were only eighteen kids in my entire grade. Okay was this In New York City this downtown Manhattan And it was it was kind of experimental. Mansell's low weird year. We're talking I. It would have been the nineties a classmate of mine and he just sort of as he's like. Are you gay. It's cool if you are. I'm just wondering wondering and this is someone you know. I've grown up with. Because they're only they're only seventeen other kids in my grade and I turned to him and I was like I don't know because I'm twelve. Yeah like it had never occurred to me And and certainly before then like I knew I was I was in hanging with the guys in the the same way that most of them were but it was such a small community you know and everyone had grown up together and they're only thirteen of us it didn't feel like I was ostracized in any way I was just one the weird kid And that was fine like and I was. I was the artsy kid you know. And so when he asked me that I was like. Oh A- and I don't remember if it was like that night although that would have been hilarious but sometime around that year I also had a adults dream mm-hmm about a classmate and it was one of the classmates I didn't even like it's not the one who I like went on to have a crush on for two years then I was like. Oh okay yeah I guess so. Fine you'll subconscious Toji perform right now and so I was like all right. I guess that kind of makes sense and I didn't really like to do anything with it just because you know I. It was a small school and it didn't really feel like anything I need to do. Anything with at the time I was still until like twelve thirteen. I wasn't really interested in dating quite yet. It wasn't really high on my to do list. There's very few people that come out when they're eleven or twelve does happen but it's quite. Yeah and so then move onto high school. It's a different high school. It's much bigger high school a couple of hundred kids in my grade and I. I make friends in a few you months into my freshman year of high school were sitting around and I say something to the effect of well you know. I think everyone has a certain amount of bisexuality and then one of my friends know love. You're just gay and I said all right. That's true as well and that was it. That was coming out thank you. I'm done this guy. I know that in yourself though. Even though you haven't you haven't had a relationship you just knew that it was just like all right that makes that makes a certain sense. I certainly had had you know by a few months into freshman year. So at that appoint that age group is fifteen fifteen. You know by then I'm starting to have crushes on people so when she said to me now you're just gay I. It was like all right. Well this is my life now and then I had. I had a queer friend by then She and I went on to be president of the alliance together like and it was Liberal High School in New York City it was not the safest environment in the world. I don't know what that would be. I don't think truly safe environment fireman really exists for people in high school but in terms of like the whole world. We're in quite a good place. Yes it was in A. I is in a very safe accepting place. My friends had no problem with it. Certainly there were other people in the school who had a problem with it but they weren't anyone I was friends with anyway anyway and if the one guy spat at me once and called me a fag and I was just like whatever like I just kept walking. Because what are you supposed to do in that situation so it didn't it. It didn't affect you didn't upset you too much now. Really it was like I said I was already the weird kid and you know coming into a larger school and then being like yes. I came from an experimental grade school with only eighteen kids in my grade like and I was the weird kid of those eighteen. Came very weird in high school Missile already I wasn't friends with The folks who were GonNa like have an issue with me coming out but even if they had a huge issue the school would've probably defended me to a degree so I felt relatively safe where the kids were out than is eligibilty. There were not many men who are out. There were several women. There was one guy the year above me who I was. Never that close with their is my friend's girlfriend and then there. There were many women who identified as bisexual And by many I mean you know seven or eight and that's quite a lot to be outside. Yeah absolutely and later when I was a senior when I was eighteen seventeen eighteen in school. Then there were a few who are younger than me. you know some guys who. I'm still friends with who were out by the time I graduated by the time I was done with high school. Certainly there were a decent amount of queer people in the school and then I went on to Oberlin. Where Oberlin college is that it's in Ohio? Act But bear with me. One of my teachers in high school she's Queer artists named Nancy freed. She is one of the the best people I've met. I think she was just so out there and like supportive of all the queer students in in high school and when I told her I was gonNA over Lynch is like I guess the Gay Mecca. That's what she called it. It's a supposedly thirty to forty percent of the student. Population identifies as queer in Ohio. Yeah it's a small very liberal college in Ohio it was. I think the first college to integrate to admit black women it has a history of very progressive policies. Go to college there. It's like all right. I'm one of many so it wasn't a big deal. Yeah no not at all right so it sounds like your friends and colleagues classmates were totally cool. What about family Family was generally cool. I didn't I just. Didn't you want to have that conversation with anyone. You know my brother. My brother was funny. I told my brother when I was in high school. I have a little brother and he was like You can't no no that's all you're eighteen and he's like five years younger than me so he would have been like ten when I told him ten or eleven when I told him no. You can't tell your eighteen. And so of course I came amounts him again when I was eighteen. And he got so mad at purdue it's like I know what are you doing. I'm like you told me I could not eighteen. You brought this on yourself and I tried it to make it very heartfelt did accept it. Oh yeah he had no problem with my parents. I didn't really you know the whole idea of coming out and I still believe this and I believe Dan. It feels like you know such an unfair burden. It's really because we them for every person ever and first-rate astray people to a degree. I think it's just unfair that we live in a society where heterosexuality is seen as the norm. And if you're gonNA deviate from that you have to be like by the way. Let me like put up this placard and let you know so that we can mike having so I never officially like had a little sit down conversation but after my first year of college my mother is driving me somewhere. I don't remember but I was talking about a guy I dated like. That's how I did it. I was just like This guy broke up with me got it was sad about it and so I was talking to my mom. And she's she said to me you know when I had two boys I thought I would Be Able to avoid. This is but let me tell you something that my mother told me. Men are scum. No and then I asked. I was like Dad knows right and she has your father's not stupid. Keep it left. So that was that was coming out to the family at large small incident than a gas. It wasn't yeah we didn't have a big My God I got to do it exactly the way I wanted to do it which I am eternally grateful for. I didn't have to make a big deal out of it just in conversation. Yeah and that's exactly kind of how I think it should be an ideal world like. Oh Yeah like I'm interested in this guy. Okay who cares. I'm interested in a girl. I'm interested a guy. Whatever is exactly exactly how it should be and fortunately? Isn't that for a lot of people which is why I wanted to do. This book is a great idea. And I think it's like such a cross section of Queer nece but that's it I mean I've spoken to people who've had terrible times in their family have never spoken to them ever again to get the positive stories. I am Super Lucky But again born and raise New York City. There's a lot of advantages there in terms of New York and Jewish. Will you parents very religious. I have a weird religious upbringing. My family Jewish very reform. To which I it's sort of an American thing in Judaism there's like degrees stories of how religious you are and reform is very like nonreligious very cultural view. Judaism is more sort of a racial background and then a religious wise and then there's conservative which is more religious than than Orthodox which is extremely religious and so we were very culturally Jewish. But we didn't get a temple At all and then to know except then I turned eleven and my parents are like. Oh we gotta get him Bar Mitzvah. Which is the thing can you do when you're a boy when you're thirteen coming of age thing? Yeah Yeah and so. They're like all right. Let's join a temple. And there were two temples nearby and they chose the Orthodox so in my home life very reform. It's not a big deal in my religious education. Asian all of a sudden I am going to Orthodox temple. And that's like that's a curtain down the middle of the temple to separate the men from the women so that you don't have impure thoughts. What's while praying and at this point? Help Yeah I was like just wrap me in a sheet and throw me in the back like what is happening and so that was a little weird and I mention homosexuality. Oh Yeah Yum Kapoor which is our Davidson meant It comes right before the new year I I remember the rabbi one year talking about how homosexuals names were written in the book of life which is essentially like saying. They're going to hell so that was a great experience. And then once I did corner I did you know full on. Ask him like what. What is the issue of homosexuality in he? He's a nice man and he said to me. Will you know the thing is is that homosexuality is immature because it's your responsibility to have children. And so what. And that's so much of it. You know so much of of Judaism and its issue with homosexuality is the idea that you're not using sperm to make babies. That's really sort of like a lot of the underlying issue and that was his underlying issue and that's how he explained it to me and I thought it was nonsense that you didn't internalize that a worry about it. Yeah it's like even even if I were straight it's not like I would be planning to have twelve kids or anything. My relationship to Judaism certainly was a little more For a while it wasn't perfect. Perfect but I think that may have also just been going from this reform to this orthodox environment and like not having a an the in between space where I really got to appreciate the culture. 'cause an Orthodox temple most of the prayers are in Hebrew which I don't speak fluently you know there's a lot of I've aspects to prayer that aren't explained to people who come in and aren't Orthodox because they've been explained to these people from the beginning okay and so I I didn't understand a lot of it already. Bit Ostracized new. I don't know if ostracizes the word but I felt going back to that veil down the middle. I felt like there was avail between me in this version of Judaism and since then my parents have joined the reforms and a Gog and everyone's much happier happy with the gays. Yeah Yeah I had a gay rabbi. Rabbi do my wedding and everything. My husband is not Jewish but we had a rabbi a priest and the High Pagan Priestess by says it was a fun. Fun Wedding I think sounds quite New Yorker the game a rabbi a priest and Pagan Priestess high praise it sounds like the beginning of a joke right there walking into a bar. That's our wedding. It's a joke. God bless sounds like a wonderful occasion. Oh it was a great wedding. Yeah no I it was. It was beautiful right on the water in Lower Manhattan and everything and the rabbi a a.
