"Okay, so that's what Americans are looking forward to in November in the lead up to that what people think the government can do now that might help Americans across the political spectrum. Now, support measures like Mask mandates. Public health rules requiring face coverings in public. They want the federal government to finally improve Corona virus testing. One of the people we surveyed is Sophie McClelland. She's a Democrat who lives near Jacksonville, Florida. I don't think that we have adequate testing because it can take up to two weeks to get results. And also, I think enough people are not following physician recommendations in terms of social distancing and wearing masks. And really, we found overwhelming majority of Americans now support mask wearing its just not controversial anymore. 75% say they will back those state mandates. And yet President Trump has made really clear that he doesn't support mask requirements at all. He tweeted yesterday that the U. S has done much better than most other countries dealing with covert 19 Do Americans agree with him? In a word. No. 2/3 of people we surveyed say America is doing worse than other countries, 41% said We're doing much worse. I put this question to Laura Brad's low. She's a Republican who lives in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Absolutely worth. We have Ah, leader and I use the term loosely in quote who is not providing leadership of this country at all. I mean, if I have constructed of war man, he should be sucking it up and wearing a mask. Now. Laura says she didn't vote for Trump in 2016 won't vote for him in November. But what's interesting is even Republicans We surveyed who do back President Trump want him to do a lot more to fight Covad, 19. Here's Kevin Reno, who lives in Irving, Texas. I think a national approach would be better. I think he would be effective and it may be at the point here before too long that we have to do that. And again So far, the president has resisted this idea of a kind of national response. But we found 2/3 of Americans want a single countrywide strategy for Corona virus testing for deciding when businesses and schools should reopen. Let me ask you what you found on schools because that is one of the biggest questions going right now. President Trump says he wants kids back in classrooms in the fall. Do the people you surveyed think that that is going to happen or that that can happen safely? People are really nervous about this. Overall, 66% of Americans say they favor distance learning in the fall, keeping their kids home. Democrats overwhelmingly favor that Republicans more mixed. 60% agree with Trump and think kids should go back to classrooms. And just real quick, the economy. What are we saying? Yeah, People say they want Washington to get off the fence. They want them to spend big to help the economy and help people who are struggling, even if that means taking on more national debt.

"Personal journey of trying to change the school system from within to switching pause giving her children, the space peace and support they always craved whilst cradling their joy of learning. So. A huge heart felt thank you for joining us today. Laura. Brad be here. That's great. We like to start these journeys offer such an interesting path you've taken into the home schooling world, but if you could take us back to your school days do you feel that that was a positive experience looking back? What would you change given a chance? I. Was I got good grades in school but I think like many students I was bored and restless and found it hard to sit in a seat that long in my teen years I, got to be so miserable that I spent quite some time campaigning to graduate a year early to take extra classes and get out and I got a lot of pushback from principals and teachers who said Oh. But these are the best years of your life. Then you'll regret not having you know this time and they did finally let me graduate a year early. So that was a relief. But I did I did find it distressing through those school years to see how school structure and the the pure culture kind crushed and changed the kid myself and the kids around me and the way that gifted people would hide their gifts in the way that need people would often be cruel to themselves or to other people and I think we kind of shrink into ourselves and hide so much of ourselves that it takes. Some of US decades to really uncover are whole beings. Right, yeah. Period of de schooling in an reinventing. Yeah almost. I. Know Your Journey is very special enter into homeschooling because you came from such a family of public school teachers and he's being very actively involved in your local schools. So just wanted, could you tell us was a specific moment when you felt model of schooling was flawed and there was there anyone in particular in the home schooling? The in charge you to start to look to fraternity gives while I was I was very inspired. By John Holts one of the books that it was old even and I read it it really got to me was hard times in paradise by David to make Colefax and it was about There's one of a memoir about raising their kids while they were building a house in a remote area and how without any real schooling at all their kids I think most of them were adopted ended up in Harvard. But for my for my turning points I was trying so hard thinking I can change school within. That even though I saw, it was looking to wall from my kids. I really persisted and I think there were maybe to train points for me. The first one is I I worked with a lot of other parents entities and that sort of thing trying to get. the heavy corporate influence off schools and it was everywhere. It was posters on the wall and it was curricula and. Every year, we could see educational companies just taking more and more control over. good teachers and what they wanted to do in good school board than what they wanted to do and we lost the fight of keeping channel, one out of our junior high in high school and that was. That was I was Kinda disgusted that parents had control, but the big turning point was when my oldest child was. confronted with a gun in the school whole lay. and. Ironically, my work life at the time had been teaching nonviolence to organizations including schools. And they could do nothing about my own school district they completely. unwilling to face that an pretended it hadn't happened. So that's voice started. homeschooling. Wow that would be a big turning point. Yes. I know many people still feel the system can be changed, but it does seem such a big fight and I know we've had a lot of guests on the say well, that might be the case but instead we could just start something fresh whether it's home schooling or Supper Valley model we talked about a lot as well just starting something from the ground up. I love reading your blog and I definitely recommend anyone to go and check that out. It said it's very interesting read very funny take on life and what it is to be fulfilled and follow your passions. I love reading about your son's interested in planes and how he just got immersed in that that's something you simply couldn't be done in a one-size-fits-all score model. So just one could you tell us and your initial introductions school? Did you? Instantly, go down the kind of unschooled ing roots or the Free Ranger to be like sufficient let. Your children, shoe their interests, or was there initially more structured approach. I think I thought I was a leaping into it in an unstructured way, but I was coming from school background. So everything radically different seems like a well experiment we didn't have. We can try curriculum in part because we couldn't afford curriculum. I guess So I lean towards project based learning and it took me a while to realize that I was the most enthusiastic one. I was excited by those creative leap of finding related avenues to explore and I finally had to step back and Elaine back. To see that, kids will explore things in far greater depth defined floor wider connections. There Tuesdays, and that fuels the way. And that's that kind of explains the whole second, half a free range learning because I'm not a big fan of separating life into separate subject areas like English math that's defense. But at the time most home schoolers I talked to also wanted to get away from the school model, but they just could not conceive of how. they could let their kids take the lead, and so I kept coming up with all of these on a hands on real world ways that they could step back and still have this kind of immersion. Rich experience. So that's why the second half of the book is full of all of these ideas, kids and families to explore. Yeah. Really is a well rounded read going through the philosophies and then the solution. So yeah, definitely anyone listening should get a copy of that system. I'm sure many of the listeners at attempt to be I days of home schooling, but they may have as they suddenly have to become a full time teacher or authoritarian. Figure in the child's life but re for me too many of your quite brilliant articles you say homeschooling actually reduced your family stress in the incessant running around that was demanded normal school day or two. Could you explain a little more of that and your beautiful quote our lives were guided by fascination and not those well, we we certainly get share running around because the world has so much to offer and There's so many experts in. Fields that are are right there kind of eager to find people especially young people who have smart questions on are excited about learning. So we didn't do a player running around, but it's easy for a new home schoolers to the school day home and get some really rigid curricula or gets Online homeschooling programs especially through schools that make kids sit there for five dollars a day. and even if you WANNA replicate grade standards, scores will tell you you can get you can get that done in an hour maybe two hours a day very easily and free kids up. To do what they are excited about. But those approaches, those are awesome fine because that's the bridge new home schooling parents may feel most comfortable about. When they're. They're new to this. And you can gradually unlearn that it takes Only. Educators to educate that that we're all humans are drawn to learn in exactly the way that's best for us. And the more we kind of relax and give kids to go ahead. Often go ahead is is very messy and You know letting explore and experiment, and but that kind of yes is is really the deeper.

Nano Rockies Friday, Saturday, Sunday, you're going to have a game six at a funnel quite the wind quite the statement by the Saint Louis blues. Looking for their first Stanley Cup in franchise history? And we had a call a couple of hours ago. Tell you put two hundred and fifty bucks on one ticket. So I'm rooting for that gentleman, and I told him he. Ends up winning his way jail sin glory on the air. Won't be pretty Laura. Brad again. But hey somebody was twenty thousand dollars. I celebrate. And of course, we got gained forty NBA finals later on tonight. So a lot of good stuff coming up, but said to Manhattan, Richard, what's up? JJ Rick Perry. Serving and Jason Kidd three pretty good ball plays, you ain't kidding. Three one hundred NBA players, right. Correct. All have in common. Rick Barry, Jason Kidd, and Dr J Julie, seven. Well, yes. Listen career and led them to playoff excitement. So don't put it this all these guys come into Brooklyn. Let me not Richard. I mean, we saw Jason Kidd now he was going to New Jersey obviously so much different elements. Same with Dr j, of course. But Richard de idea now that they have to max contracts. They can go about this so many different ways. China. Davis, if it's kyri, Kevin durang keeping DeAngelis Russell. And then signing another guy this trade just gives them that much more flexibility gives them that much more maneuverability within the roster. So I got a few more things at the Mets on seventeen intended home. That's the best record in the National League home record. So to playing home games coming up seventeen intended can improve on that. So the Mets can still make some. Hey now, now, remember, though, Richard a lot of those games against so poor competition. And it's weird Richard because the last couple years, they've actually played four better away from city field than it did add city field to. She has a little different. What I've seen now. Baseball season is forty percent. Just about forty percent done. So it's a pretty good sampling. This guy on Milwaukee yelich he's doing something right now. That in my fifty five here to watching baseball never been done. He's leading the National League in homers and stolen bases. That's unbelievable. Remember anybody doing that? No. I don't not my lifetime, the number is for yellow right now just outrageous, sitting three twenty eight with twenty three bombs fifty-one RBI's, thirteen stolen bases as an opium. That's like one point two. He's one of if not best player in baseball. We know my Chad has had that title for a while. You have to put Christian yelich conversation. Let's sit out to Long Island Jj. He's on the fan. What's up Jay? Jay Jay, Jay. Not much central. You look at the Indians or nine Naff games back from the twins. A bunch of pictures injured and cresco goes. Okay. But, but you think is you're saying last segment that you need a difference maker for pitcher, not like Dallas, like a real difference maker for the playoffs. It'll be willing to send to sell Trevor Bauer by Bella. It's definitely possible. I'm not love whichever Bauer in New York City to be honest with you. There are certain guys where I look at their mindset, and I look at the way they handle, it business Bauer in New York, I get the sense, he could get eaten alive. I mean the drone incidents the way he interacts with people on Twitter. I mean he's a different kind of cat is a very quirky dude. And there are just certain guys where I look at them and I say is the mentality where it needs to be. It may turn out the keys. He could be listened to talent is there Jade is built down. I. You're talking about his mindset. The fact that he's crazy. And we all know it, but because he's the type of person we can go out and pitch two hundred pitches in a series and they gave an a five game series he could Fitch two games. They've come out of the bullpen. He legit be your jack-of-all-trades in the playoffs. Oh, listen. Of course we saw that with Cleveland a couple of years ago. I know he's a very talented guy. I'm not questioning the talented Trevor Bauer in any way. But instead this in the off season when there were rumors about maybe the needs, begging a move that I was in love with the idea, Trevor Balan Yankee pinstripes. That's too sensitive personality come into New York, not gonna play well his quirkiness may not play well. Quirky guy, but I'm not pitching the Yankee Stadium ever. That. You know, I'm not dealing with members in media. I'm not taking on people on Twitter. That's not going to work in a Yankee uniform. So I'd be very careful at you have a ballot the Indians pitcher on the market. If he's right if he gets back, and he's able to pitch tonight. One is court cooler. Bayonne jersey L, John was having a JJ. I look at it. Cashman wasn't going after. All bummed on and beat a piece of the trade. That at all. Got a full no trade. And is going to agree to Kona Washington, listening to a great Wolke. San Francisco Giants. I mean, are you crazy? All right. Listen to me, something. Okay. It's situation. Three way trade. Come on John now again so lackey so crazy. So out of line. Come on, man, be better. Do better. Listen. I'm down on John Carlos than myself. I have serious doubts about his ability to hate and deliver and come through in games that not for the Yankees. Come on, guys. Get a full no trade. You China work at three team tray with Bosnia's and Padres. I mean, the dodgers I now I think that a lot of possession. Okay. I don't think they're in dire need of adding, John Carlos. Then that's for starters to film, the chain Giancarlo Stanton, lights being here. It's not going anywhere folks for better worst, you stuck with them. It's at the queen's Mike Jones Aziz on a foul. It felt like JJ. Jokin. Thank you. Thank you. I couldn't agree with you. I, I'm glad you went to the National League. He wasn't the guy we need needed here. Wasn't that top guy? Look in. Sure. Is on top guy, we could hold out to the trade deadline and maybe treat, you know, for sure there or somebody like that, that would be what I should do. My question to you is we talked about this for the last couple of months about what all these guys are trickling back into the lineup and, you know, he coming back nights, and our here. I just found out on the update I heard that the town, I'm kind of shocked about I can remark indicate basically short tonight. I'm assuming. And or jealousy third, the play LeMay you at first in speech like going forward like what? The lineup for D right away. And you need that DJ. Spot found out in inches or. I disagree Mike necessarily agree with that because Aaron judge is not here. John Carlos Stanton is still not here. Kennedy's Barral play his do or shell upholstered decent short cleavers at second void and you play DJ LeMay you at first base. Short-term krystof. But you think in judge, you're probably gonna come back in the next three weeks. You know they've already pushed. Goerner bench player. Now, when one of those guys back free to avenge you can have. Even if you don't get rid of them, even though he's been playing well. But I'm just wondering. Not gonna get any. Play every day. Now, I think it comes down to simple fact, Mike, you want to stay in Hanky lineup. You've got to produce and there will be enough point on the go, Ron you'd rather have it this way we have too many good players phenomenon spots, as opposed to there is any alternative fund show. Looking forward to turn looking forward to the weekend. Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend. Thanks to Mike Manny. On the other side, you guys standing calls with them show's coming up morning shows coming up, I am back Sunday morning until then the city began. Right now..

"My producers Morgan lash and James Burland and joining us on the hotline right now, we have national security lawyer Brad moss can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q, Brad. How're you doing pretty good this evening? How you doing good so much for joining us? Let me start with this apparent discrepancy between the attorney general's characterization of what might have happened to the Trump campaign and the FBI directors comments today bar said, the Trump campaign was spied on during the two thousand sixteen election director Ray said today, he wouldn't characterize it that way, and then he doesn't have any evidence that any kind of legal surveillance was done. Basically if there was surveilled the appropriate underlying evidence for it was provided. What do you make of all of this is someone who's followed? The issue closely and has a lot of insight into the process. Yes. So we're getting into a bit of a debate over semantics here. I mean, look, there's no dispute that there was some manner of falen spying, whatever you wanna call it on the Trump campaign. The question is was there anything legal about that? Was there? Anything fraudulent? Now, the authorization was secured in the first place, and that is what the general was trying very poorly mining which trying to convey was that was being investigated. And that's what the I director was saying that is so far as what he seen nothing illegal about it. They're all manners of means. And mechanisms available to lawn force -ment surveilled American citizens. There's a process for it. No one is immune from it, not even political campaigns does obvious political, and you know, palsy sensitivities to surveilling campaign. But ultimately if the legal basis. There law enforcement has the ability authorisation to do so. And that's what the education's looking right now. So this is all going to come down to what was the underlying evidence? That led to the surveillance was it on the up and up. Correct. And particularly was what the FBI provided to the five court when they saw the warrant applications with respect to Carter page as well as the methods that were used to interact with George popadopoulos in the summer twenty sixteen was anything about how they get the information provided it did they follow procedure do they comply with existing rules and regulations as well as US federal law with respect to the different types of surveillance. And that's what the inquiry looking into. And so far the FBI director can't be discovered on this. So far, no evidence of illegality has come up a lot of questions optics, but not necessarily illegality. Do we know where the inspector? General report is on this when it comes to the origins of the BI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign. Do we know where it stands at the moment? Understanding from the attorney general's testimony is that they're close to wrapping it up and looking at you know, this month or next month to issue. The final mighty probably be better lengthy document. -ssarily Muller reports style legs. Lengthy all likely be eighty ninety hundred pages easily with exhibits and things. So there's going to be a lot of detail takes time. A lot of levels of review bureaucratic approvals before it can be issued going to delve into the origins of how this ivestigations started. Whether or not aiding was done wrong. Again, we have a lot of smoke. So far is a lot of issues of bias potentially ear what Peter strongly page doing with different people doing they started what's known as operating cross hurricane. But we don't know mating was wrong. And that remains the question and somebody who deals in national security law. How much of the G reports is the public likely to be able to see. Public should be able to see a large portion of it with obvious caveats for classified information, which will certainly come into this. Right. The rather is somewhat unusual idea for normally the cheese looking into the play misconduct. Lot of what they do is very sexy. Very foreing, trivial trivial, but very boring stuff about the day to day operations of the agencies. This is a unique situation with a lot of sensitive classified information a lot of law enforcement. So a lot of the heights of reductions we saw the Muller for it's very likely. We'll see similar types categories productions in the I g reports, which of course, immediately. Be litigated just that the reactions being litigated right now. And final question on. This point is the attorney general doing his own investigation as well. In addition to the I g because that's when he seemed to say when he was testifying. Before congress sounded like she had set up some kind of little task force, which you know, DOJ senior leadership will sometimes do they've got, you know, stuck in their heads of this political pressure to address something I don't really have any issue with the journal du nights really has the story to do. So. And if if nothing else if he conducts his own separate Corey involved, he the I g finds that the optics pavement bad, but there was nothing illegal or proper done right provides more impetus more strange to the argument that this was just, you know, a political L. The process by the president or is ally more than anything else. Just like the arguments that there was no criminal conspiracy. In the end by the president teams of colluded with the Russians was given extra. Because of the fact that it came from caller, we're talking to national security lawyer Brad moss here on PM Tampa Bay when it comes to this growing battle between Democrats in congress and the executive branch. What powers do lawmakers have to compel the Trump administration to cooperate? The White House is basically saying we're not cooperating with subpoenas period. The treasury secretaries blocking the release of Trump's tax returns. The attorney general could be held in contempt as soon as tomorrow, how is this all likely to play out? So the honest answer is they have lawmakers have various authorities. But they're almost overwhelmingly limited to civil remedies not criminal ones, and it will take time whether it's Trump's tax returns, whether it's holding people into term, whether it's documents being withheld under executive privilege. Things like that. The house can do the administration and try to compel production of information could compel production of documents testimony. But it will take time to work its way through the courts, and certainly whichever side would lose the first round of the district court would appeal to the stick up to this after the appellate court and so on and so forth, and it will to lay things that seems to be the political strategy that the Trump White House has taken that they're going to try to rag this out push off the full scrutiny complete oversight until after twenty twenty to avoid it being significant of a campaign issue. Now pushback from the White House in the executive branch when it comes to congressional oversight in congressional inquiries is in unusual. We saw Eric Holder. He was held in contempt by congress over the fast and furious investigation. So this isn't unusual. But what about the scale this time is that? What is a little bit different. So it's a far more systematic than categorical refusal to cooperate by the Trump White House, which again is a largely political question on their of underworld. President does not provide scrutiny does not like oversight. And he certainly doesn't like it with respect to this matter that he thought was a witch hunt from the beginning. So he's going to basically force congress limit dragons through this before he does anything. We're talking about national security, Laura. Brad mossy can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q final question for you. And this is a big one whether or not Muller is going to testify before congress. It doesn't seem like the Lindsey Graham led Senate Judiciary committee has much interest in hearing from him. But the house certainly does can the president block Robert Muller from testifying. So so long as the president one is rubber Muller remains a DJ impli technically right now, he's still remains one. Then. Yes, he the president. Hold it up once Robert Muller becomes a private citizen. Again. There are limited. Nations that can be imposed on his ability to testify. He's still bound by ninety. He would have signed when it came back on a special counsel, there's executive privilege issues as any number of government happening geology for that would apply his testimony that would make it difficult. How much of a fight the White House wants to that remains to be seen because possibly the worst thing they could do from political fan point than a legal one is a make it look they're trying to prevent baller from coming forward to testify it with Mel like a cover up and they've already one on the larger legal point. There was no criminal conspiracy. So do so to block Robert Muller and keep him silenced. Seems to be a poor political play you mentioned executive privilege moment ago. And that's a big issue when it comes to former White House counsel, Don Mcgann. It sounds like the Trump administration's likely to use that as a way. To block dumb again from testifying before congress. There are some questions because Mcgann was already allowed to speak with a special counsel as much as he was whether or not executive privilege already been been waived, what are your thoughts on that particular issue? So even if it hadn't been waived by simply allowing again at testify before the special counsel, in my view, it was definitely waived when they allow those details to be made public location of the motherboard that to me the far stronger arguments for waiver. It would be very difficult to put that you know, for real genie back in the metaphor. Right. Could they try to make some kind of argument? Of course, they could lawyers can do about anything if you give us enough money. But in this case, it would almost certainly lose. But again, it becomes a delay tactic. It would take time to compel the process take time. For course, the rule on it repeals to be decided. And again, if the ultimate goal is to delay delay delay. That's just one. More step. They could take that would push the stuff quite potentially until after twenty twenty really interesting. Thanks so much for all the clarity on a number of very complex issues. That are going on right now in Washington DC, national security lawyer Brad moss, who you can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q Brad, always a pleasure. Thanks so much. Never from coming up next. We'll talk about this coffee Cup the wound up in a game of thrones episode and set the internet on yesterday. We've got that for you in a moment.

"The battle that's about to ensue, and we'll talk more about the obstruction part. Because that's where really the focus is going to be especially for the media moving forward. The battle. That's about to ensue over obstruction of Justice is almost identical to the one that took place after the conclusion of the Clinton Email investigation. I said this is what was going to happen. And this is exactly what's happening. We talked about this weeks ago. There is a case to be made. If you read through the obstruction section of the mullahs report. Divvy. Crime of obstruction of Justice was committed. And there's a case to be made that one wasn't. It is very complicated legally and Robert Muller, basically says so in the report he lays out all the different complications. And his conclusion is essentially because of all these legal complications. This is a matter for congress to decide. Which is why he didn't weigh in on obstruction. When you can't come to a determination legally when it comes to the president, then congress has to make the determination. I think just like the Clinton Email investigation. Neither side is going to be movable on this issue beyond thing. He did anything wrong. You're gonna continue to think he didn't do anything wrong. If you think he did do something wrong. You're going to continue to think he did something wrong. I don't see how the mullahs report changes the political landscape in this country. Unless it leads Democrats to move forward with impeachment proceedings. I don't think that's where we're headed at the moment. But there's still more that is going to unfold Muller's going to testify before congress bars could testify before congress. But if the Democrats did move forward with impeachment proceedings be very risky move could actually wind up helping the president in two thousand twenty but aside from that watch the numbers they're not going to move much. And I don't think bars press conference today or the summary or any of that stuff. Basically the attempt to frame the issue before the report was released. That's not going to matter. This country's pretty split. And it doesn't move much especially when it comes to this president. So politically, I don't think much change today. Eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two. Coming up in a moment. We're going to talk to national security, Laura, Brad moss. We'll talk about some of the legal issues that were discussed in the mullahs report. And then the first half hour of the next hour. So from seventy seven thirty it's going to be open phone lines. I've got a specific question that I want to ask you about the mullahs report. And then we can take other calls to on the report itself if you have questions things like that. We'll have plenty of time to get to it. It's Muller report time here on PM Tampa Bay Brad moss coming up for you next. From the Florida central credit union home loans traffic.

"Twenty fifth. I'm Ryan Gorman with me in studio. My producers Morgan lash in James Burland full show today and thank God. Because huge national and local stories have been breaking since first thing this morning. We're gonna get to the Tropicana field going cashless story in a bit one open up the phone lines on that one too. But I. Time and time again, I come on this show after the president has said or done something. I take issue with it and say what he should have done or should do going forward to usually different from what the talking heads who support Trump for saying, many of you, call me up or hit me up on social media and tell me how wrong I am. And then Trump winds up doing exactly what I suggested wash rinse repeat? What have I been saying? And the shutdown then negotiate immigration policy. What did he do today ended the shutdown without any money for the wall? And now, they'll negotiate immigration policy. We've got a lot to get to on the end of the shutdown. We're gonna dive into that in a few moments right now, though, joining me on hotline is national security lawyer. Brad mossy can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q a former Trump campaign adviser Roger stone was arrested in Fort Lauderdale earlier this morning. He's facing seven counts including obstruction of official proceeding making false statements and witness tampering. Brad busy day. Hi, doing Ryan. Nonstop all on a Friday. It always happens on a Friday Friday supposed to be the day where you kinda like ease into the weekend, but not so much except the era of Trump Friday is Muller day. It is it hasn't been Muller day in a while buts. This indictment is certainly something we've expected what's the headline here. So the big headline is someone high up in the campaign instructed, a senior campaign official to coordinate leaks from WikiLeaks through Roger stone. That was the big takeaway from this indictment, which was speaking in that Robert Muller's team put out all kinds of factual background. They did have to provide to prove the actual underlying charges be provided. All these context, though about how the campaign was told to coordinate with Roger stone that he had insider information on what was going to be releasing over the next couple of months, and he knew. Do what the context was going to be. And so some senior official who's on identified was directed to coordinate with him in the question is who gave the direction, and why now molar doesn't allege any election conspiracy or any knowledge by Trump in today's indictment. Correct. Correct. Not to be can't do it in a superseding indictment. But in this particular indictment at this time he has not make that allegation now. So so basically what Muller is stating with this indictment for for the first time, the Trump campaign was in the loop about some of the things that Roger stone was up to including his communications with WikiLeaks who were dropping all the emails throughout the campaign. Correct. They were actively involved actively coordinating with him as what the information that. He was receiving. They didn't necessarily know how he was getting it. That's also an unresolved question. How much they knew about where Roger was getting innocent. Information. But there were actively coordinating with him in working that angle to get insider information in advanced knowledge of what WikiLeaks was going to be dumping on the public. Now, Roger stone very defiant today. He says he will never testify against President Trump. He's going to plead not guilty. How is this likely to play out? And in terms of the details laid out in this indictment on the counts that stone is facing. How strong is the case that you've seen from Muller in terms of the actual charges. Brought I don't see Roger stone getting out of this. There's areas with the false statement claims where there might be some room for some wiggle room to he could possibly beat it back up. It's just not enough. The witness tampering is too much the obstructionist too much. He will be convicted if this goes to trial. The question is whether or not this was all they had they were willing to bring against Roger stone. Or if they're opening salvo. This is them saying that would be why they do the speaking time as well. This is all the stuff. This is some stuff we've got here's the particular charges. We're going to bring right now if you want to trial, but if you're ready to talk and to cooperate, and if you've got. Some verifiable material information relevant to our investigation. Let's talk about a deal before we seek a superseding indictment. Everybody else in Trump world has talked big been all strong saying we'll never turn on the president. Every single one of them has flipped. Roger stone's the last. What would he potentially be facing? If he were to be convicted of these charges. If you were to be convicted on all the charges, he could be facing double digit, you know, years in prison. Roger stone's, not a young, man. Roger stone is sixty six years old. He's in the twilight years, he does not want to spend his final time in which he's got his full mental capacity. You know, four by four Sal without freedom in when people face that real pressure of indictment of the real possibility of jail time. Dir calculation changes we saw that was Michael Cohen said he was gonna take a bullet for the president. And guess what that changed? So, you know, once now that there's an indictment now that the reality is gonna set in. We'll see what Roger stone really believed that how much he's really willing to hold up for the president. We're talking to national security, Laura. Brad mossy can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q about the indictment of Roger stone. That was the the first big story that broke earlier today. In terms of the charges of obstruction of an official proceeding and witness tampering from what I could see and really even the making false statements. A lot of this stuff. This is their documents backing these charges up, right? Yeah. And that was in that is so critical. When you read this indictment Muller has all the receipts. Everybody keeps trying to placate. He's trying to play games with this the trying to conceal things keep trying to distort facts. The man has got all the received. He's got your text messages. He's got the what's that message is he's got the emails you've got to trust documents. He has all that. That's what they spent so much time investigating and collecting before they started pursuing indictments. He's got everything. Roger stone went before congress and said, he didn't he said, they were asking Chris particular documents. He said, I've got no text messages that address this issue, and what do you see in the indictment? There's all these text messages, including the days at Roger is testifying. You sending text messages to Randy critic who was one of the two individuals that issue. This is what happened in Trump world. These guys were always on the fringe of political experience that were never really the key players and they played in the grey areas. And when they finally came under. Got bit for me. At the end of the day, either stones gonna wind up vindicated or he's going gonna end up in jail. Same with Manafort, somebody is is gonna be proven writes in this back and forth. So I'm content being patient and watching this whole thing play out the last thing I want to touch on in regards to this indictment. The senior Trump campaign official who was going back and forth with stone. How much legal jeopardy could that person be in depending on the circumstances? And this is one of the unresolved questions from minutes 'cause they don't go into a lot of detail of what the communications, but like exactly, but depending on how active and how proactive that individual was that person could face criminal conspiracy charges on the United States, and the committee campaign finance Bellamy in that they were trying to you're part of a criminal conspiracy. Using Roger stone's, Nina mediary, Theresa received something of value from foreign national Julian Assange for the purpose of influencing the election. That is a campaign finance you cannot receive anything of value for four nationals last thing. I want to ask you about. We're talking to national security lawyer Brad moss, a story that broke last night that has been completely buried by. All the breaking news today this issue with Jared Kushner and his security clearance. You are well-versed when it comes to. Two security clearances. What's the story there, and how problematic could it be for Kushner, the story that came out? And there was an NBC last night is that the line adjudicator the normal civil servants in the White House office of security who review the FBI reports and decide whether or not the gra- took grant White House staffers secret or top secret security clearances both the first line in the second line adjudicators. Both said, no, we said, we will not grant Jared Kushner security clearance, and they referenced foreign influence to certain personal extensive four or financial connections, expensive tr- foreign business connections, extensive foreign contacts all those things that we all expected and always assumed we're going to be obstacles for someone like Jared Kushner, but what came out in the story is that the head of the officers security overruled them something that I've never seen in twelve years. And according to the story is pretty darned rare at the White House as well. He overruled them in grant. A top secret. But when it went to the CIA to grant, Jared, what's called sensitive compartment. That information access CIA told them to pound sand and said, we don't even know how you ever give him top secret given these concerns, and it wasn't just Kushner there were a bunch of other officials. Correct. I think it was like thirty total thirty into this head of security overruled, the line adjudicators in thirty different cases. We don't know who the other thirty are for people who had areas red flags that came up in their file that were causing you to caters to refuse to grant them the access now, there could be different circumstances. Where maybe the Gators were being a little too stringent and too harsh. Right. We don't know all the details yet. But this was a serious concern. This many times that the head of security was overruling the normal line adjudicators something was broken there. And you can pretty much bet house. Democrats are going to be looking into this, right? Yeah. There's already invested. Gatien house oversights already indicated they're looking into the clearance process, and what went on with respect to people like Kushner and Gorka porter and all those individuals, you'd be sure this individual call Klein will be subpoenaed in some form national security lawyer Brad mossy can follow on Twitter at Brad moss. ES Q Brad really appreciate it on Friday evening, so much news to talk about thanks so much for joining us. Not a problem. Have a good one coming up next.

"WFL? A this is P M Tampa Bay with Brian Gorman. So we've been discussing the BuzzFeed report that broke last night's all throughout the show this evening the latest on it. And again, the BuzzFeed reports. This is what they alleged in their story that broke. I would say about twenty two hours ago. President Trump directed at former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the extent of his plans to build the Trump Tower in Moscow. That was the gist of of the report from BuzzFeed. Earlier this evening a spokesperson for special counsel, Robert Muller's office, and and. In the conversation that I had with national security, Laura Brad moss earlier in the show nether one of us believed that that these sources in the BuzzFeed report were from the special counsel's office because the special counsel's office keeps things extremely close to the vest. They don't leak despite what you hear from some other shows and networks and personalities special counsel's office doesn't leak. So the spokesperson for the special counsel's office said this buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Cohen, congressional testimony are not accurate what that means. We really don't know. Because there's a lot in that report. Buzzfeed news now issued a statement few minutes ago saying we are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report. That's so that's where we stand right now. And and it really goes back to something that I've said every single time we've discussed the Russian investigation or the special counsel on this show. There is a lot. We don't know. And I'm okay with that. I have always been okay with letting the chips fall where they may. And once the reports done we'll see what the special counsel has. And we'll see what the president and his attorneys have to say about it. The reason this story that broke on BuzzFeed last night was such a big deal and guarded so much tension. There was a reason for it. Because there's a lot of times news out of the special counsel's investigation or something tied to the Russian investigation. There's a new report, and you know, it gets some coverage, but not like this BuzzFeed report, the reason the BuzzFeed report got so much attention was because if true it is clear cut, obstruction of Justice. No ambiguity. No ifs, ands, or buts an impeachable offense. That's why the story has gotten so much coverage over the past twenty two hours or so it's why we talked about it so much here on this show this evening. And if you listen to the show, you know, I only do stuff involving the Russian investigation and the special counsel's office. When it's monumental when it's potentially Dame changing. And this report was that. But from the very beginning we said it had not been corroborated yet. We don't know if the details of the report are in fact, true. And that's how you need to approach every one of these kinds of stories no matter where they come from. Some of these kinds of stories nothing to this magnitude, but other stories tied to the Russia investigation. Have been true. Stories about the Russian investigation that the president denied have been proven true. So did just dismiss anything like this out of hand. As fake news is stupid. You take a look at the reporting. You take a look at what it could potentially mean. And you wait for more facts to come to light. The fact that the special counsel's office. Specifically issued a statement about this report tonight says a lot. Unfortunately, the statement is really general. So a lot of people are trying to parse what was said. We.

"Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani issued a statement Friday today denying the BuzzFeed news story, the Trump directed Cohen to lie to congress about his plans to build the Trump Tower in Moscow. This Giuliani's denial was the first direct denial of the allegations. Earlier in the day, you add the White House deputy press secretary and Kellyanne Conway declined to explicitly denied the report. Which didn't look good. But now you've got Rudy Giuliani saying, and I'm quoting here. Any suggestion from any source that the president counseled Michael Cohen to lies categorically false. Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and a liar. It's the prosecutors. He is traded on a pattern of lies and dishonesty over an extended period of time, and for that he is going to pay a very very serious price. Today's claims are just more made up lies born of Michael Collins malice and desperation in an effort to reduce the sentence. The problem with that last part of the explanation the attacks on Michael Cohen is that the BuzzFeed report, specifically states. The evidence is corroborated by multiple witness interviews, which would mean more people than just Cohen, internal documents and communications. So again this. This would not be Muller just taking Coen's word for it. Which I always said Muller would never do. Former deputy assistant. Attorney General John you was on Fox News. And he's been very I think even keeled. About everything involving the Russia investigation and collusion and obstruction. And all of that. He said today that if the BuzzFeed news report is true. It could be a smoking gun. You said two points. One is of course, Michael Cohen has already pled guilty to lying to congress. So yes, aveer credibility problems. But suppose, it's true. This could be the smoking gun that Trump's critics have been looking for you recall that back in the day when President Clinton was impeached the grounds for that impeachment was perjuring himself. But also trying to suborn perjury exactly what Trump is accused of doing here. And you pointed out this crime would have been committed while Trump was president. And that would make you qualify as obstruction of Justice. He said this is obstruction of Justice. If true you may recall that was one of the grounds. There was given for articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon. So this is actually much more serious than what we've seen in the past about claims of Trump Russia collusion. That's where we stand right now on this BuzzFeed story, there's a little bit more than I want to touch on in a bit including how Don jR, could be affected by all of it. But again there hasn't been any corroboration from other news sources yet. And to me, that's a big deal. So big story. Very important. If true. Coming up next. We'll talk to national security, Laura Brad moss about the BuzzFeed report will get his takeaways on it in a moment here on PM. Tampa Bay.
