The Fate of College Football's 2020 Season
"Ridden Berg thank you for taking a little bit of time after what is zoom is an incredibly chaotic day to chat with me. GREAT TO BE WITH IT'S A. Very historic and like you said wild and crazy time right now in college football, we figure out whether there'll be a season if there is who way. Adam Ridden Berg is scrambling to cover college football including the big ten. conference. For ESPN. Adam I want to start by rewinding a little bit actually from your perspective. What last week looked like because as a Friday, it kind of looked like we were GonNa have some college football. There was this path moving forward on that front and so if you had to make a chart. Of how things stood last week of who is in who is out who was on the fence for actually playing college football what would that chart have looked like? It's like an optimistic chart going back to two marsh but certainly even last week I still felt fairly optimistic about the possibility of a season. We had Yukon that announced on Wednesday that they weren't gonNA, play but they're independent. They're not connected to these television contracts like others are even these these group of five. Leagues. And then Thursday into Friday. He was hearing from sources around the sport that, Hey, this Mac meeting that was on Saturday in the mid American conference that was to be significant. That, there was a chance that at least one school was not going to play and others might be in the same boat and the whole league might decide at that point to postpone the fall season and football. It Yo it became clear that we were heading a lot closer to a you know a national postponement or at least a large groups of the College Football Leagues deciding not to play this fall. And so Adam you and I are talking at about six Oh five pm eastern time right now on a Monday so. What happened today and it will I guess what was the first thing that happened today on your feet? Well, again a lot we reported ESPN and others that the the big ten presidents were strongly leaning towards postponing that was on Sunday, and then you're the news that broke overnight was significant that this crash tag we WANNA play movement From Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Justin fields of Ohio state. Some of the most prominent players in college football were getting real traction I mean this is your became the number one trending topic on twitter for a little while that was sort of the big story overnight and then today it's just monitoring. You know what's going on in the big ten. There's been reports that they've already canceled. That's not a at least as this recording that's not true. The Mountain West. Late, this afternoon did decide to postpone their seasons. So that's the second FBI's conference after the men American to decide not to play football and other sports this year. and You specifically cover the big ten that's your beat, and that's the conference. Everyone seems to be waiting to see what move comes next. So what exactly as we speak now is happening with the big ten this evening. Right. So it appears that the athletic directors are or speaking that's not a huge deal because they talking all the time now in the League but th, there's a sense of when they'll be a formal vote among presidents that hasn't taken place. I haven't heard from many sources that vote among presidents it's imminent but in theory I, it wouldn't take very long for that to take place if the League was ready to move forward with the postponement. So I think the discussions now are regarding timing whether some of the positions have changed around the conference. You've had a number of prominent coaches speak out about their desire to have. A season the big ten Pablo has always been a league. I I've covered it for a number of years that's been largely unified on the big topics and I can't remember a time where you've had a group of presidents that seem ready to postpone for the most part. But then you have many others loud voices in the league like the coaches like the players saying this isn't right. You can't do this. This is a wrong thing to do at this point and so that that's that's a unique spot for a conference has always prided itself on your equal revenue sharing and you're trying to be unified in its messaging.

Trump pushes reopening schools with false claims about the coronavirus
"Donald Trump's crow virus comments. Now come with a disclaimer. This misinformation could be harmful to your health that's not me talking that's facebook which rarely steps in to impose standards on trump, but even facebook decided that Donald. Trump's false claims about children and the virus are dangerous today for the first time facebook removed a video that Donald Trump posted saying that children are immune from corona virus which facebook classified as harmful coverted misinformation that harmful misinformation is the cornerstone of Donald. Trump's repeated push to open schools even though more children are testing positive for coronavirus shortly after returning to in person school and even though a new study found quote higher rates of Corona virus infection amongst minority socio economically disadvantaged children. By the way it's poor children who are the most hurt by being out of school because they are the least likely to have adequate technology at home to fully participate in remote learning and Donald Trump says schools should open even without teachers. I think the teachers are different story and teachers at a certain age group. I think they shouldn't be going in and probably they're going to have to wait till the thing goes by. They'll have to wait it will go by. Well. We know the Donald. Trump doesn't have a plan to help schools reopened safely and he hasn't thought about it beyond what he thinks will help him politically, which is to wish the pandemic away. My view, the school should open this thing's going away. It will go away like things go away. The virus this thing's going away, go away like things do by tumbling Jesus. Next to me reality. It's going away now it'll go away things go away. Absolutely. That's. My mind it will go. Frequently sooner rather than later. That sounds familiar. It's because it is donald trump has repeated a version of that lie every month since February. It's going to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear it will go away. This is going away. This is going to go away without a vaccine. It's going away I said, it's going to disappear I'll say it again but to going to disinfectant. Thankfully we have Dr Faucher who today gave us this assessment of what we must do as a country. We had the kind of response that was not as well suited to what the dynamics of this outbreak is. What we've seen is a great disparity in how individual states cities. Responded as long as you have any member of society, any demographic group WHO's not seriously trying to get to the end game of suppressing this, it will continue to smoulder and smolder and smolder, and that will be the reason why in a non unified way we've plateaued at an unacceptable level.

Garmin reportedly paid millions to resolve its recent ransomware attack
"Garment Hack. Lawrence Abrams bleeping computer as we know, as always had a strong interest in ransomware. So I'm not surprised that his coverage of the Garmin ransomware attack was the most detailed of any I've seen nor that he's had access to some. Insiders who have reached out to provide him some extra tasty bits. Among. Other things an employee inside Garmon informed him that the initial ransom demand was for ten million dollars. Oh. Yeah. Holy Moly. Dead. Dead million dollars. Okay. We don't know what ransom was finally paid. But it seems more certain than ever. That Garmon did pay up Lawrence wrote. After a four day outage, Garmon suddenly announced that they were starting to restore services and it made us suspect that they paid the ransom to receive a decrypt her. then. Last Saturday. Lawrence posted today bleeping computer gained access to an execute, -able created by the garment it department to Decrypt a workstation and then install a variety of security software on the machine. Since wasted locker. That's the ransomware is an enterprise targeting ransomware with no known weaknesses in their encryption algorithm. Decrypt, her cannot be made for free. And remember that bleeping computer has has been sort of a focal point four. The less than well designed ransom. Where mistakes were found in the encryption which allowed for the creation of a no charge, dijk crypt door and those have been organized and are are and can be found through bleeping computer. So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This. Restoration package includes various security software installers, a decryption key, a wasted locker decrypt door, and a script to run them all. When executed the restoration package, decrypt the computer and then preps the machine with security software. Garments stripped contains a time stamp of July Twenty Fifth Twenty Twenty, which indicates that the ransom was paid either on the twenty fourth or twenty fifth. Using the sample of wasted locker from the garment attack, that is the actual. The actual ransomware from the garment attack bleeping computer encrypted did a virtual machine. And tested the decrypt her to see if it would decrypt their files. He said in our test, the decrypt. Decrypt files. So Interesting was that the package received by bleeping computer included references to both the cyber security firm Ms Soft E.. M.. S., I S O. F T. R. M, m cysts, soft sorry. Emphasis soft, and the ransomware negotiations service cove wear. When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.

Is Apple dying?
"I want you to bring in our next guests. I've been to an apple apple Amazon all morning, and I think you've got some great insights here. But I got one story I'm standing on Fifth Avenue. With one of the great giants of early Apple Analysis. Lawrence Haverty of Putnam and of Gabelli, and everyone around us was talking about the death of Apple and Larry have already stood. Next to be and he said, Tom, it is total baloney. Larry. However, he was right 10 years ago, telling that might have been the 1st 2nd 3rd 4th Exactly. We've done that. I think we've done it five times since it's well joining us Now we're lucky to have a meet Dario Nardi ever caught outside Apple analyst with us right now, I made how on Earth do south, $26 billion worth of iPhones. Or the world simile Shut down. You know, That's a great question. I think it's a combination ofthe perhaps having the right product launched. I see a lower price product. But importantly in the apple management extensively about this The benefits of the economic stimulus that kind of permeated through the ecosystem. For them. Something is a combination of those two. But for the one of the really make it, perhaps to Corbett, where we've all been fixated on how public cloud off from his data centers are the new narrative. Perhaps the importance of Apple and its ecosystem is also gone up, especially from a consumer standpoint, so I mean, let's be really clear about this. Is this a consumer staple something you have to have or luxury goods company that leverage the massive fiscal stimulus of the last few months? It's somewhere in the middle of this right now. It is definitely a higher prize Luxury. Good, aspirational product. There's no denying that right. You could buy a cheaper for me. Goodbye, Cheaper piece if you want it. So there is a luxury element to this, but it has also the same time become business people built for individuals that work everything delivered in the stats. Apple Hod I thought with fairly impressive, which is 50% of the Max and iPad was the first time buyers ever 75% of Watts was sold to the first time buyers ever. Wow. I mean, that is tremendous, and it really highlights the importance of the hardware aspect of apple. Even though a lot of people were saying heading into this year, This had to become more of a services company. They had to get more revenue. From their iTunes and there are other services that was in line with expectations didn't have the massive beat of the other hardware focused aspects. What do you take away from that going forward? Yeah, you keep it up services are field was up 15% of the no, Not not not a terrible number, but clearly not the way it's been going in the past. I think the reality of services It's a massive business today. There are lots of puts and takes to it. And so what they saw was perhaps the advertising business licensing business. There is actually a ghoul, um, and apple care business, which is effectively the Newport Those those products of those services were declining. A bit more faster, did not grasp the flipside was things like Apple music. Things like APP store did much better if it was a bit of focus. Your tale of two cities. But you step back and think about this just keeps validated the point that this is diversity at scale. And even if you don't see services are iPhones rate, things like Apple Watch Variables and Max are doing better. I mean, I've been looking for an entry point on Apple for seven years, and I'm still searching for myself. A January 1st, mate, I want you to tell me the kiss and kiss January 1 return on Apple. This would 10% dividend growth. And also with that massive, persistent share buyback program, and I locked in for an 8% return day one. You know the buy back alone, a TTE least for the next four years. It's not longer probably will give you about a 6% return that she ever doctor will be about 6% right? You know, the dividend yield. Given the stock has improved. Paramount is about a one person today it's in the ZIP code. It's about 7% return between buybacks and evidence that you get annually. I look at this folks and just extraordinary. What was just said. They're about a 7% return day. One is well. Tim Cook spoke about the social issues. That they are not zero sum. Anybody in economics knows that that is back to Torsten Veblen. Is Apple, adding to society or they just stealing share from everything else out there that can't compete. Um I would imagine that they are more adding to the society. Worse is not, And you know, if you look at Apple's market shit, it is not a large number by any means any metric that they're playing right? Attend a video eating what Apple is done what others have done. Perhaps make things more productive, more interactive or efficient. Everyone benefited from that transition if you may, but I don't think that Taking anything away. That probably added to the society. We tried to have this conversation in the last Lets do it again. What's behind this stock split? Well, I think the official's times was, this makes it more accessible for investors will stand. Julie, not if it matters right. It doesn't create much economic well hear the end of the day, right? If I own one Charlotte for Chester. It's a bit of a non event. From our perspective From economic perspective. It's a non event.

They drove off in Juliet Papa now leading us off with the arrest, motive and the alleged questionable method. De Blasio says that no time or federal agents involved in the arrest or would they be, But he's not happy with the way it went down. I think it was the wrong time and the wrong place to effectuate that arrest. Protester Nicky Stone was taken into custody, accused of vandalizing police cameras in public property during prior demonstrations. Video shows the protester picked up by playing close members of the warrant squad while uniformed cops on bicycles surrounded the vehicle. Governor Cuomo also questioned the tactic. I'm surprised that especially at this time the NYPD the would take such an obnoxious action, the NYPD says Vandalism like that will never be tolerated.

"A look at the schedule and testing guidelines as things get going around the league, all players must pass three Cova tests over a four day span before entering the team facility, today and tomorrow players will. Will be tested and then return home to isolate for twenty four hours. Meetings are still virtual. After this period, players will be tested daily for the first two weeks, and then every other day. If the positive rate remains below five percent players do have the option to opt out. Really get back to that in just a moment, but first here's what a handful of head coaches are saying about today. Sorry I mean again. The emphasis will be that. We've got to follow the protocol. Be Very diligent with. That's the thing that I think that we're missing right now. A society is that. Is that not very diligent as we? Understand more and more about this. It seems that you know that that wearing a mouse washing your hands socially just. Trying to avoid large crowds You know you give yourself a chance. We're fortunate that we're testing here testing. And you know so. We're getting results quickly. Other thing that's been beneficial. Of Our and Continuing maintain, Around the League, a number of US going to have to be the best teammates we've ever been because we're GONNA have to not only take care of one another, but we're really looking after your families, too, because we're going to make the best decisions off the field and I think we've also learned you can do all the right steps, and still you know have positive tests so. We'll take them when those happen. We'll deal with them, and that's why the protocols are in place. And there's this component so far. Nine thousand nine hundred players have opted out of the upcoming season, and the list is growing some notable names here. Including Three Patriots starters also. You've heard GPS guard Lawrence do Vernay Tardif and bear stalwart Eddie Goldman. Adamant feels like this list has been growing by the minute today. Take us through exactly what the opt out means and the deadline to do so the impact of this. We'll susie this situation where I think a lot of players are concerned about what they're seeing across the country with the spikes in various states, some of these players who are opting out have friends, relatives, family members who are sick. Who may have passed in this particular case, every situation is unique and different. Dont`a hightower welcome to child in the middle of July Patrick shown is scheduled to have a child in the near future, and I think players are looking out for their safety and feel unsettled about the fact that the virus has affected certain segments of the society more of the disaffected others. It has affected the elderly, I. Think we're going to hear more and more. More about coaches around the NFL something. We're not hearing a lot of right now. It is affected minorities and I think some of these players have been scared off by and are opting for the opt out for this upcoming season. We've seen a higher than expected number of opt-outs and again players have until August third to officially. Opt Out so this may just be the beginning we have six opt outs from the new. England patriots already, and there may be more coming across the League Uzi.

Lincoln Project Releases Video Criticizing Trump's Pandemic Remarks and Well-Wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell
"I want to take a look at another factor in the campaign, and this is Republicans working against the re election of Donald Trump, and this is the latest from the Lincoln Project, let's take a look at the Lincoln projects latest AD. COVID nineteen deaths till now more than one hundred forty, one thousand thousand new deaths reported overnight. It is what it is. Forty million people have lost their jobs in ten weeks is what it is massive camouflaged federal agents detaining peaceful protesters. It is what it is. The British social is accused of conspiring with. I wish her well whatever it is I just wish it well frankly. Jennifer Mary from Donald. Trump's both yesterday to the ad tonight. something obviously unimaginable before him? President United States saying I wish her well twice about a woman accused of sex trafficking, minor jewelry four Jeffrey, Epstein. Yeah and it's a case. The Messenger being effective for getting getting under trump's skin. Think that wondering the Lincoln projects does really well. Is that Republicans are former Republicans may know what irks Republicans and say you know. I, think coming back. Keep coming back to that comment about wishing her well is joined to. It's GonNa. It's GonNa. Upset Him, and that's what. That's what he does. Their ads are designed to do that. Designed to provoke and you know with the the video with the former vice president and President Obama. It's another case of the Messenger being just the right one in. We all talk about how trump doesn't take responsibility. Kirk says, but to have a former president I dates. Who Bore so much responsibility for advice for the United? States, speaking in a casual conversation like this. I think it really has an impact people. It's not a speech. It's not a set interview. It's a conversation and also as a practitioner I really admire how well the Biden campaign is played this out a clip today. We are all talking about it. I got a ton of. Of calls from reporters today. Who wanted to talk about the Biden Obama relationship? There was an event in build build. There's more that they'll will see tomorrow, but this is what the campaigns got to figure out. How do you do this and the time of a pandemic when you don't when the BP doesn't have the opportunity to do a lot of offense and I think we'll have to see stage, but in this case manage to make it informal in warm events like this. As the president was leaving the briefing room. Today we could all hear someone or more than one reporter yelling. That name Lane Maxwell to the president That was the question he didn't want to deal with today about. Why did he wish her well yesterday? That's right and what we saw yesterday was a president who was at least on message when he was reading. Out from notes, but then when he was his notes, he was against spreading misleading information so while he's reading he saying yes, the it's going to get worse before it's better the minutes later when he doesn't have a dose in front of what he's saying is actually it's going to disappear so what we see and president trump is someone who is easily thrown off in this case. When he's answering the question, he's being fully himself, so he answered that question really in the way that he really believed. He wanted to answer it and I. Think now, of course it's causing problems for him, and maybe now he's GonNa Adjust his answer. to to find some way that will make this may smooth over a bit, but we already know what president trump thinks because we have to go with the first answer, which is the answer that he gave when he was really thinking about it, in a way that was very much leaning on his instincts, which was of course to wish her well.

"Getting more out of every tripton thought was so interesting is movie is so massive and obviously they couldn't shoot at night because i can only imagine what it would have been too light by moonlight. You know already impossible but did you notice that you know this. Movie has an effect on it that i think a lot of films of this day dana have which is like they should day for night in the filter over the lens so it gives night a very kind of eerie look. It's a gay <hes>. It almost looks like sunset all the time or something like that. It's cause. They have a lens over the camera. I mean i like the idea that it looks alien in a way because what i thought when i was watching lawrence take this time was how much the alien look. Lawrence of arabia is then transplant into star wars right. <hes> doesn't this movie just seem like star wars well. Of course i mean look. It's it's it's these are the people who were affected by the film. I mean that's spielberg lucas scorsese. They're all watching this as kids going. I wanna make that yeah. We've seen that i was most thinking of is i really really early on when lucas at tattooing and he's running around with goggles and he's spying. He's looking at what he calls. The sand people there are.

"This this is lawrence at the most godlike he is and you basically are making this allusion almost like walking on water walking on the train car. You're seeing him in these flowing robes he he looks absolutely god-like and and what is he doing like. He is losing the thread right like he's. He's bought into his own power. I think the you know this power and corrupt. I think that that's part of this journey to whether you're large government a small tribe. <hes> you know or just a man you see how this i mean. This moment leads into the rape scene because of his bravado he he doesn't even take any precautions. He's losing his army. He doesn't care he's he. You know he when you get shot. He's like of course i didn't die. It doesn't hurt standing there. I was thinking actually standing standing there like jewels. Everybody shoots at him and fiction. He standing there like go on and there's a d._n._a. In that really liked yeah i really i mean it's fascinating but yeah like the score is telling us. He's not a hero and it's it's building up to that moment after the big massacre when we have this reversal like at the beginning lawrence's telling selling sharieff your the monster. You're the uncivilised one in now at sharieff saying you have gone too far. You are the monster in then you have the photographer who has made him into this god in this moment and there's even this kind of sense that like maybe he's the figurehead because because people like anthony quinn don't want to be photographed so he is the photographed one and then you have the photographer almost just yelling at him and away since he regrets what he's done to make this man of god jesus. Where does it surprise you mr bentley surely you know the arabs are s- people dobson crew who but who but they oh you'll rotten. Let me take your rotten bloody picture for the rotten bloody newspapers. I love that it should be. They're saying like this is your stereotype of me but it was the englishman who did and here is the reporter who built this man. Who's now condemning this man and that's again. It's all about these characters very small observed served performances of of how we can build somebody up and then knock them down and feel in the right on both sides i mean he leaves us movie not a hero. I mean again going back to that scorsese clip. He leaves you long. I think for simplicity of what we see in the first act which is being lost in the desert place that he feels as clean and exciting and what he kind of did was got himself back into the corporate or the the idea of what the i mean that's what the end of the movie he is. It's like they take over this town and they start to form government but they you know they can't figure out the government. It's like we're getting into bureaucracy like like it. It all just devolves. Yeah i mean it's fascinating when they make it to damascus and you have the scene of the arab council which i think is like the they this movie does make the arab council look completely insane because they're trying to just condense into really fast by the way gotta people screaming. Arab council lasted way after the war. I mean if until nineteen i'm twenty right yeah i think like i think a lot of the people of the arab nations were so offended by this moment of the arab council that that's part of why this movie was banned in most arab nations besides egypt yeah. It looks like our physician and it's really of elevated him there there right. At least i mean but it looks almost duck soup like it is it is a it is is comical. It is a legit comical. Yeah we've gone from this kind of expanse of the desert. When you see these tribes in the desert they make visual sense. You know there's this clearness. There's a space and then they're they are. They fit in that landscape and the way they're shot here. It's all these clashing costumes of all these people from all these different tribes doors where we're not nice to see them as the cantina and it's crowded and it's chaotic and it just looks like it doesn't fit and there's this dark irony that i love in here where these are people who have not needed electricity city and they have not needed running water in now they're falling apart because this town does and they're asked to do something that they have never needed before and of course they can't go from like zero zero two seven hundred on being like oh yes. This is how wiring work because they have in. They have learned to live without it. They've never had it and so yeah i can imagine watching the scene and and being from arab nation and then you watch this this chaos exists.

"Dear is nineteen sixty two. There's a man a plan and a camel. The movie lawrence of arabia hello everybody welcome to on spoiled nicholson paul sheridan and this is the podcast for each week we watch one from from the top one hundred films of all time list the two thousand seven addition to see if they really are as good as people say do they hold up and and how have they influenced the films that we watch now <hes> last week. We spoke about network with our great guests. Tatyana mas lonnie this week we we are talking about lawrence of arabia but before we get into that amy. Let's see what people thought about network. This is one of the movies that i think a lot of people saying it for the first time. We're like oh i get it. I have seen this movie referenced a gazillion times in oh my god this move feel so relevant. Today i love hearing that feedback from people just being like boom. This movie hit me like an electric thunderbolt. I can't believe that is awesome. Thanks so relevant you know. I wish i actually wrote down who said this but i thought it was interesting point so forgive me for not name checking but the idea that we are constantly in this battle of talking down to the next generation right and the idea idea that the way that we talk about millennials is very similar to the way that the old school talked about faye dunaway. You know they were raised on t._v. They don't have any morals and we're constantly looking behind us and criticizing the people there instead of elevating them up and i just thought that was a really interesting point and if you look at all the critiques level that faye dunaway you can see a great similarity between all the critiques against millennials right now. Yeah i think think morgan halen twitter is one of the people who made that point and what i think is the extra delicious irony is that it's the people of the faye dunaway era who are saying that about the millennials. They're the people who like they got it when they were kids now. They're just dishing it back. Man <hes> also <hes> we were taking the task for kind of sympathizing with the faye dunaway character. Some people thought she was a straight straight up monster and deserved no sympathy and i wholeheartedly disagree with that opinion. I i don't know she is <hes> the and nicest person but i don't think she is a monster. We really did get into that but i i disagree with that idea that she is a villain to end all villains as many people send me pictures as of seventies closed showing the women wore too much beige. I'm jealous of the cut of all those pants because you know you've seen a good high waisted pant man. You can't get me in that beige to say my life. No amy <hes> we got to actually really interesting <hes> right up this week we were written up in mr mister skin which is the website that kind of helps <hes> their readers <hes> find spots and film where people are primarily naked and someone was watching english along with us on the fi- list end and not only <hes> kind of continue the conversation with us but actually skewered the conversation to you went naked and there was one shocking mission there which was i don't think bruce willis is but was mentioned from pulp fiction and that's <hes> that is some genuine mister skin territory so yeah. I thought that writers seventy weber. I really appreciated that. One of the scenes that she pointed out was the strip seen in nashville where the singers forced to strip to get people to pay attention to her and and i thought she wrote about it not just from the perspective of yet titties out but like really getting into the emotion of the scene so well done mr skin. Yes thank you mr skin and also thanks to the washington post forgiving us a little bit of a shoutout and their article about the shawshank redemption <hes>. Did you see the pictures from the sideshow of the shawshank redemption. Here's what happened. I can actually talk about this from the l. a. week zachary pincus roth who i adore very much <hes> then he moved to washington and he became the center of the washington post he went to this giant shawshank redemption like then anniversary and that's articles about ba- my god the tattoos people has awesome sculptures out of chocolate i mean i was losing my mind signed following his instagram story about this and then when he wrote about it i was so happy and i was glad that he would say that. Our shawshank episode is still one of our most controversial. Yes i would think that <hes> we may be the public enemy number one of that fan fest i mean i don't think people <hes> great right up so well done zach you know amy. I want to talk about this briefly but the movie the joker premiered vanessa todd phelps movie you know him as the director of music. He's like old school. He also directed me in a film called sculpture scoundrels with john heater <hes> he <hes> and joaquin phoenix kind of collaborated to make the first ever r. rated warner brothers comic book movie <hes> franch potentially franchise picture you know as joaquin phoenix as a joker. The initial response response out of venice was really intense right it. It got an eight minute standing ovation and people it's amazing. It's mesmerizing. People really took out there the sources for this review and then there are a lot of people going. This is an insect story. This is a story that is taking the the wrong message and putting it out there and it was really interesting to kind of see the comparisons to taxi driver and the joker now texture. Everyone comes out and can is boot not received while at all. We talked about that a little bit but did you kinda phony that <hes> online a bit you know because i'm a critic i try not to read anything that anybody says about things you do sense of the vibe around it and i'm gonna toronto this week <hes> for the festival and i'm hoping i get a chance to see the joker but i'll be reviewing these for variety so god only knows have to but i mean i really am interested because it seems like what we're talking about isn't even exactly a film problem but an audience problem and like how do we interpret the movies like where's the weight on the audience to decipher attention because i absolutely believe that some people do see a different movie in taxi driver than i think is intended and also do think that the movie leaves it for open you know and i don't know how to feel about all of that well i i i feel very ill equipped to talk about the joker because i haven't seen it. I've only read people's reactions. Chew it and what i will say is people that were holding up taxi driver as this deft hand telling us very <hes> carefully crafted story. I argue. I think that the moral center the people were saying the tech ever had is not necessarily there. I do agree with you that it's in the eye of the beholder. You can look at it like yes. Travis bickel is a a hero at the end of that movie because of the way the public season we have seen his personal life and i think again movies are for interpretation but you can't compare the two and say that one is responsible for making one. It's era sponsor because they think they both while again. I haven't seen the joker but i don't i can clearly clearly say taxi. Driver is not like this is bad. He is you know he got no. He didn't lectures but maybe maybe that's. The film helmet need something. I want to talk about this movie. When it comes out i mean maybe we do like minnesota on the joke taxi driver because you really get into this once we can and really dig our fingernails into it. I love it all right. Let's get into today's movies a big one. I said to you last week if homework people are really nervous that i said that i did watch it on a small screen. People may have had a chance this week to go out and see on the big screen <hes> but one question that was asked common question. I'll reference paul elliott who asked why is a british classic on the list. Do you know why i mean this kind of gets into the clockwork orange territory a lot of maybe a murder. The money was the financing financing. I wonder if we don't claim things where the money with was there but we don't like the film like. I don't know how that goes i i wanted to. I wonder how many films are both on the af i and the by the british list well if we have an intrepid listener out there that wants to take on this task please do and then let us know when we will reveal the answer next week. <hes> another thing that we brought up <hes> was said call the unspoiled voicemail line at seven four seven six six six five eight two four and if you've not seen lawrence of arabia. Tell us what you think it is about and here's what we got eye radio's about the british invasion of america by the beatles so my knowledge of history is limited to billy joel's. We didn't start the fire nine hundred eighty s tomorrow janney low into sequel to the credit. Can't it's about going to arabia and teaching career lawrence of arabia as a child. I believed believed that it was the cousin of george of the jungle so i i assume it's four hours of lawrence of arabia. Finally meeting his cousin george george of the jungle saint classic <hes> fish out of water tale of a young indian boy who ends up in the middle of arabia arabia where he tiredly works on his jump shot and <hes> starts going by larry bird lawrence of arabia is a prequel to issue talk.

"Rachel so having a deputy attorney general with no prosecutorial or law enforcement experience is unheard of for my first guest. Mccabe who I just checked with while you were unheard of it on. So I mean, surely we've had one at some point in the past. But it is not the way it has been working in the modern Justice. This will not be the first deputy general who has not worked at the Justice department before. But this will be this'll be groundbreaking in some other ways, and it is unusual especially given what's going on in the Justice department right now, where institutionalists are probably the most valuable thing we could have as a country to have somebody there who's a new we will get Andrew McCabe is reaction to rod Rosenstein is replacement and so many other things including Rachel, including this which I don't think you've heard anyone else mentioned from his book the first time Andrew McCabe heard the Donald Trump wants to go to war in Venezuela. You want to guess guess which year that was on? It wasn't wasn't anytime recently. The that's in here last book, I have to tell you just Lawrence. I'm let you go. I have been I have watched all the Andrew McCabe interviews. I have looked at everything that has been published about his book the interview, I am in most excited about is this one year about to do and I'm very excited, you know, why? Because it's going to be two Irish guys sitting around talking about Jeff Sessions Goto that's go. Thanks arts. Well in an investigative report released today by four New York Times reporters, the nary times summarized what they describe as President Trump's two year war on the investigations and circling him that war has included attacks by the president on our first guest tonight, Andrew McCabe, and his wife much of the times report today is a cohesive assembly of most of it is what of things that we already know and have already been revealed about the president's war on the investigations and the investigators, including special counsel, Robert Muller and his staff, but the lead item in the times report shows the president once again stepping up to the line if not crossing the line of obstruction of Justice the times reports that shortly after firing attorney general Jeff Sessions the president's called Matthew g Whitaker his newly-installed attorney general with the question he asked whether. Jeffrey Berman the United States attorney for the southern of New York, and the Trump ally could be put in charge of the widening investigation that was that was of course, a widening investigation, which the president of the United States had already been affectively named an unindicted co conspirator in federal court in Manhattan, and none indicted co conspirator who committed crimes with Michael Cohen and ordered Michael Cohen to commit crimes in arranging payoffs for these silence of two women in the final days of the presidential campaign. The problem for the president was that Jeffrey Perman who the president appointed as the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan had already recused himself from any investigation involving the presence. So Jeffrey Berman could not do what Andrew McCabe says the President Trump expects from federal prosecutors who he appoints Jeffrey Berman could not protect Donald Trump in his book, Andrew McCabe writes that what he knows about President Trump. He writes what he knows about. President Trump asking then FBI director James Comey to drop the investigation of Donald Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He writes this after commes conversation with the president. He called me on the phone to tell me, what Trump said this was the moment when I realized that the president and his administration were not just inexperienced not just unfamiliar with the established norms of democratic government. They wished to manipulate the functions of government mainly for their own interests..

"Now, it's time for the last word with Lawrence O, Donald Rachel. And when I saw at fifteen minutes before nine. That this memory was coming. Yeah. But we didn't actually when did you actually get it in your hands? I got it in my hands while we were playing the sound bite in the block of Mike Pence telling Mike barnicle that Mike Flynn junior didn't work on the transition. That's when it was handed to that's it was headed to me. And so as soon as I heard this, I just thought this is so unfair. This is so unfair unfair to Rachel. But okay. So so how about this? How about this? What if what if tonight? When this memo arrived, I had simply slipped into your chair and taken the first half hour. Okay. And you are reading the memo offstage somewhere, then you come in at nine thirty you go from nine thirty to ten thirty. I'll be reading the memo van, and then I mean, we'll both end up with an hour of TV in this mix. Somehow. So we'll do this. We'll do it. We'll pass news in pass breaking news like a baton and the delayed relay designed to put the most informed person on TV at any given moment. And and that first half hour when I'm covering for you. That's not gonna exactly be news. That's going to be me talking about what I did today. And maybe some old memories of working in the Senate, or whatever I can come up with to just kind of cover for you over in a corner reading. Next next filing. We could try this. Whatever you say Flynn filings have been between eight thirty nine o'clock. Yes. No. They know Rachel they are testing you. And you are passing the test. Every night extraordinary. How you tonight Mary kind, my friend. Thanks, rachel. Well, we had a vivid display today of the reason. President Trump's criminal defense lawyers. Do not want him to testify under oath to Robert Muller's grand jury. John down who quit the presence legal defense team gets the last line. The very last line in Bob Woodward's book fear where it says in the political back and forth, the evasions the dials the tweeting the obscuring crying fake news the indignation. Trump had one overriding problem that Dowd new but could not bring himself to say to the president your effing liar. That's how the book ends effing liar. Earlier. Imbaba Woodward's book. John DOD does tell the president this. You do have trouble staying on the subject, and that can defeat you. Then you try to catch yourself, and you mistake something and then bam. It's like Mike Flynn, not remembering the conversation with Kislyak. There's the president's criminal defense lawyer telling him that if he testifies under oath in the Muller investigation. He will commit perjury and on that same page of the Woodward. Book Dowd simplified has advised to the president this way don't testify. It's either that or an orange jumpsuit when John Dowd, and the Trump criminal defense lawyers watched what Donald Trump did in the Oval Office today. None of them were surprised and all of them knew what they were. Watching was version of what would happen to Donald Trump if he had to testify under oath answering questions from Robert Muller in the Oval Office today. The role of Robert Muller was played by. I Chuck Schumer. One thing. I think we can agree on is. We shouldn't shut down the government over a dispute, and you wanna shut it talking about the last time joke, you shut it. No, no, no. And then you up waiting time quickly. And when he don't wanna do what you did twenty times John of called for I will shut down the government. If I don't get my will. None of us have no something you've said, you want to put that in my said, I'll take okay good. You know, what I'll say? Yes. If we don't get what we want one way or the other whether it's through you through a military through anything you want to call. I will shut down that guy. Okay up there. And I answered and I am proud to shut down the government for border security..

"She's very smart to be careful about how she how she goes about this and the I want to read you something that dean Heller Republican Senator from Nevada said today on a conference call that has now been reported a conference call to Nevada Republicans. And this is this is certainly inside look at how the men certainly of the Republican party in the Senate. See this. He said, we got a little hiccup here with the cabinet nomination. We'll get. Through this and we'll get off to the races. And so for him, it's a little hiccup, not exactly. I mean, look, she. She would be coming before a committee that includes Senator Lindsey, Graham who has called this drive by shooting. We certainly have heard from Senator hatch who thinks somehow she's just mixed up. So it's not that she's coming before a group of people who are impartial, who actually want to get to the truth is they wanted to get to the truth, they'd let the FBI investigate this this she's asked. But instead they are trying to jam this nomination through his we seen and many people have talked about, there is no rush to do this. It's the only rushes their political rush. When you look at Merrick, garland, who, of course was nominated and spent three hundred days trying to keep from actually entertaining his nomination. So I think that this is a committee that is already stacked against her politically and they are looking to jam her to bully her. And I think she is wise to be really smart and buffalo about how she. How she goes through this process. I mean to say, we have to have you here Monday at ten AM, right. Oh, by the way, make sure you have all of your your whole written statement for us. Friday at ten AM is to say, we don't want your best testimony. We don't want you prepared. We don't want you rested. We don't want you to get outside of trouble of madness that you've been captured in by the glare of this story since it became public and there is Susan Collins, encouraging. All of this Susan Collins is encouraging all of Chuck Grassley bullying here. It's been very discouraging to see what senators have sad and treating her with suspicion as opposed to someone who's actually try coming forward and doing her civic duty to talk about someone who is being nominated, not just for an average judgeship for a lifetime appointment of the supreme court. And I think the important thing to Lawrence and I know you're picking up on this because everyone is women are paying attention. And if anyone on that committee thinks that women aren't noticing this, they should just wait till November six because. Women are upset. They're sick of seeing women bullied. They're sick of seeing women not being treated with fairness and listening to our stories. So I hope I hope the Republicans on this committee are really, really thinking carefully about how they tweet this woman, sue Richards. Thank you very much. Really appreciate it. Thanks a lot. And when we come back more on the FBI investigation and why Brett Cavanaugh is afraid apparently of talking to FBI agents because lying to be I engines his AAC con..

"I mean, reporters and media organizations who should know better how many of them will just stick their microphones out there and let Chuck Grassley get away with any lie. He wants to tell about there being no time for an FBI investigation. This is when voters need the news media because voters cannot drop everything they're doing at work and rush to Washington and occupy the halls of the Russell Senate office building or the jerk that Senate office building and tell those senators how they feel it is the Washington press corps. Now that has a job to do and it's important job and only they can do it and that job is not to simply facilitate and pass along the out, right? Lies of Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch. And now all of the Republican senators who are all lying. About the fact that there's no time for an FBI investigation. The news media's job now is to penetrate an expose that lie that is ally and any member of the news media who accepts that lie unchallenged by any Republican member of the Senate is complicit in that lie, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee is on his way to committing a crime against the truth in his committee, and I'm no longer sure that Chuck Grassley even knows that I'm no longer sure. Check wrestling has any memory of a single word. He said during the Clarence Thomas hearings I worked with Chuck Grassley when I was on the democratic staff of the Senate finance committee and the nine hundred ninety s and on that committee Chuck Grassley was always a reasonable if occasionally cantankerous participants in the committee's work and he almost always voted against everything. I was trying to move through that committee, but I never doubted Chuck Grassley integrity and has worked on the finance committee at that time. But I am sorry to say Chuck. Grassley has stayed in the Senate way too long. Listen, listen to this. Listen to the very first words. The Chuck Grassley the chairman of the judiciary committee spoke today when he was asked why he opposed an FBI investigation this time. So you guys and gals all understand maybe I'm not say guys in cal-. Maybe I better say men and women. Yes. Undergrad sling, it's twenty eighteen. We call them women now. Journey eras gushing. Now, Christine Lucius a former staff director for the Senate Judiciary committee. She's the executive vice president of the leadership conference and Lisa graves co, director of documented. She is a former chief counsel for nominations for the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary. On the democratic side, she was deputy assistant attorney general in the department of Justice and Christine. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. At least it has been with us before and I, it is just the time when we need the expertise of former staffers on the Senate Judiciary committee to guide us through where we are now, and I want to get your reaction to the Republicans on this committee now all now, including Jeff flake who seemed to be a sounding reasonable early in the week, holding onto this position that there's absolutely no time for an FBI investigation. Lawrence, I think you're right. I think it's absurd. And as you set up the contrast as bad as Anita hill was treated by the Senate Judiciary committee in nine hundred ninety. One doctor blade. Zied Ford is being treated even worse by chairman, Grassley and for two reasons..

"Now it's time for the last word with Lawrence o. Donald good evening. Racial December eighteenth was going to be a Christmas shopping night for me, but I got, okay, I'm putting that. I'll be here. I will be here December eighteenth that that's in Rachel. You know, I, I was. Giga some notes her. And when you said the highest ranking member of the Trump administration to plead guilty, I've so deepen cavenaugh that I said, what had forgotten about this man named Michael Flynn, bread Kavanagh has taken up that space. I now I know between now and December eighteenth, we're going to get all sorts of interesting filings around his sentencing in which prosecutors will tell us in public facing documents how much she has cooperated. And so we're, we're about between now and when he gets sentenced for about to learn a lot about how Flynn has factored into the rest of this case, which should be interesting in terms of us understanding where Muller and his team is at well, we are now embarked most of our discussing the lies that the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee are now trying to sell to the public. And I've got a couple of Wilmer Senate Judiciary committee staffers to help me with that. So that's what we're up to well done. My friend. Well, tonight, Senate Republicans are trying to bully a woman in two testifying to the Senate Judiciary committee on their terms and the terms the Republicans are offering professor, Christine blassie. Ford are worse. They are worse than the terms that same Senate Judiciary committee offered to professor Anita hill in similar circumstances twenty-seven years ago, and there's no other word for it. I am. Sorry. There's no other word for what the Republican chairman of the judiciary committee Chuck Grassley is trying to do to talk to Dr four and it is the senate's version of bullying. Senate chairman have bullying powers and Chuck Grassley is trying to use his Chuck Grassley is desperately trying trying to create public rationales for what he is doing that sound reasonable, but they only sad reasonable if you know absolutely nothing about Senate procedure, Senate committee procedure and the history of Chuck Grassley own judiciary committee. And most importantly, Chuck Grassley his personal history. Most Republican members of the Senate do not understand Senate procedure. In fact, in fact, Democrats either they do not understand judiciary committee procedure, not really and they do not understand judiciary committee history. Very few of them do and only one of them knows Chuck Grassley personal history with this subject. And that is the eighty four year old Republican Senator Orrin Hatch who sits beside the eighty-five year old Chuck Grassley in the Senate Judiciary committee. Now they are the two Republicans on the committee who have been here before they are the two Republicans who personally bullied professor Anita hill when she came before that same committee to testify against Clarence Thomas nomination to the supreme court by a Republican president because she said he had committed repeated acts of sexual harassment against her in the workplace and elsewhere they are the only two Republicans still sitting on that committee twenty-seven years later twenty. Seven years after disgracing themselves, one, Anita hill testified to the committee. They're still there. Anita. Hill's accusations against Clarence..

"He probably can put somebody in under the vacant sees act who could be a boot on on Bob Moore's nasty or even Rosenstein. So Lawrence, here's why what is protecting the rule of law is all of the people watching tonight and how much work they do on behalf of Democrats and their states to flip those districts. Because if the Democrats take the house, even if there is an interim attorney general, who does the president's bidding, that person's life can be made a bloody hell through the subpoena power of the house of representatives. He won't be able to move a fraction of an inch to do anything to impede the Muller investigation without the House Judiciary committee subpoenaed to testify every day if necessary. So this is all about elections. Having consequences at all of this will. Play out, just fine for the constitution. If the Democrats take the house, if they don't, and it is not a sure thing by any means if they don't were living in a world of hurt and Harry live, and I want to go back to your point about the special prosecutor, referring the Michael Cohen case out of the special prosecutor's office to the US attorney in the southern district of New York. And when that happened, the head of that office, the US attorney himself recused himself because he was appointed by President Trump, and so it is now being run by the professionals in that office who are beyond the reach of President Trump, and I just want you to go back and double underline something that we raised at the time when we saw that happen, we thought this could be a move Muller is making for among other reasons to make sure the audit the investigation survives anything that might happen to him. If Donald Trump gets rid of Jeff Sessions. Rod Rosenstein gets rid of Muller something will survive in another jurisdiction. And this week when we saw what happened when we saw what Michael Cohen confessed to when we saw Michael cones heard Michael cones description of the crimes he committed with the president of the United States. Now we can understand, I think more than ever before in this week in Trump's worst week, the enormity and importance of that decision to move that case, the case that might bring down the president out to a courtroom in New York. So true. And in fact, the three biggest kinds of crimes that Muller's investigating and has uncovered, which would be this the the collusion with the getting of dirt on Hillary and the the hacking and also now the campaign finance Cohen. Now, figures centrally in all of them. This is what I mean by the dam breaking there was just a sense this week to me Lawrence that not it wasn't simply Muller pursuing this lonely path is the one person telling the truth in town. It just feels like they're been their brushfires that are breaking out everywhere and putting pressure on on Trump for many corners including civilly, right. If Trump organization is in big trouble that puts a world of hurt on him..

"And your point is the more the public sees of that the worse it is for Donald Trump. Yeah, I'm a big believer that the biggest lid on President Trump is the character of Donald Trump, and I think this really matters to people and also one of the things we've talked about this a little before. Lawrence thing you have to remember with Trump too, is that we haven't had a crisis yet they've been no, thank God. No nine, eleven, no two thousand eight, but yo- crises can come. And one of the minute we know about Trump is that when a crisis comes, he blames others. He doesn't take responsibility. And so all of this is part of the man's character. And I think we've been exposed to it now in isolation from Hillary Clinton. You know in the election two years ago, people said, well, I'm gonna plug by nose and vote for the guy, a bad character because I can't vote. For Hillary Clinton. I think she has a bad character that was enough to pull enough moderate Republicans over the line to just get Donald Trump to squeak through. But now we've had two years of the full Trump, and I think a lot of people understand that this is a personality and this is a person who needs to be checked. I don't know if they'll be enough. It depends obviously on the democratic candidate in every district and every state and ultimately having a leader of the Democratic Party. You can't beat something with nothing and that will have to come down the road. But I think character matters and this is another thing I believe, and maybe it's just the Minnesota, Minnesota nice mid western boy in me. But I think Americans really want to be pulled together. I don't think they like being divided like Sinise and Shiites I say, all of them, but I think there's a constituency there. And when you think of how narrowly Trump won some of these mid western states, why doesn't take a lot of Republicans to stay home just to stay home little vote for a democrat to tip the next presidential election and maybe. A lot of these districts, Tom Friedman, the column is must read as always thank you very much for joining us in that. Really appreciate it. Thank you. Coming up today is the fourth anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown, the unarmed eighteen year old who was shot and killed in Ferguson Missouri. One of the people who was protesting that killing at that time has just won the election for district attorney. In Ferguson. We'll also have more on the insider trading case of congressman of Collins and his son. Crime is sometimes a father and son game in the mafia. Sometimes in the Republican party Republican guardsmen. Chris Collins was charged with insider trading yesterday in lying to the BI along with his twenty five year old son Cameron Collins who was charged with exactly the same crimes. In this case, crime was not just a father and son game. It was a father and son, and son's wife and son's father in law and sons..

"Well, they're seeing kind of an unattractive character. On the one hand, Lawrence, I an admitted criminal, a guy who got up there and talked about essentially a crime spree that he and Pullman for or involved in by his story, but then also admitted, as you said to all these other crimes that some of which the prosecution said they didn't even know about until Mr. gates brought it to their attention as part of his plea agreement where they sort of say, look, you need to confess all your bad acts because it's going to come out at trial anyway. So Barbara mcquade our legal contributor notice that she thought the jury's body language, they were sort of leaning back in their seats after having been leaning forward and attentively taking notes as if to express some scepticism about gates. Now that doesn't mean they won't eventually believe. What he's saying? Because he, I thought he was ineffective and compelling witness, even as he was admitting to all these crimes. He because he is a man with nothing left to lose. I mean, his whole goal right now is to minimize his prison term and to cooperate with prosecutors. And he made it very clear that the prosecution made it very clear that if he lies on the stand, his agreement, his veal is Nolan void. But his guilty plea would stand and he'd be looking at it very long prison sentence. So. He's only sort of started partway down the road of admitting to all these various charges in the specifics that he acknowledged up front that he's guilty of. Remember he was indicted alongside Mr. Manafort with of the same Bank and tax for charges and right up front. He said, yes, I was guilty of those charges now. I've only plead guilty to this one charge of lying to the FBI, but I was guilty of all this other stuff. And here's what else I was guilty of. And it was a pretty compelling Tableau today. Lawrence made me Roka's a prosecutor you've dealt with this many times you put on the stand, your star witness for the prosecution is a person who committed crimes with the defendant. So you have the admitted criminal on the witness stand in exchange for a reduced sentence saying that guy over there that defendant is a criminal. Absolutely. And you know, I've put on the stand witnesses who have committed just horrible crimes, murderers drug trafficking, liars fraudsters. And as can noted the jury, does they get it? They don't like those cooperators and they probably don't like Rick gates and they may be leaning back in their seat. But as said, that doesn't mean they won't believe him. And that's the key prosecutors. Tell jurors all the time. You don't have to like him. You have to believe him if you don't have to, but you should. And here's why. And then they give the jury reasons to believe the cooperator of government. The government prosecution is never going to ask a jury to solely rely on a cooperating witness, like Rick gates. They're going to back their case up with crop ration- with evidence with other witnesses, and they're going to ask you, does this make sense? Does it fit in with the other evidence? They're also going to point to the cooperation agreement, and it's very important because. A cooperation agreement is designed the government cooperation agreement that all US attorney's offices us and the one that was used here to incentivize truth telly. Basically, the way a cooperator can really mess himself up is to plead guilty under cooperation agreement and then lie on the stand or two prosecutors. Then they're going to end up probably getting a higher sentence than they would have gotten it. They just walked in the door and pled guilty to some crimes the cooperation agreement incentivizes them to tell the truth. That's how they got a reduction in the sentence..
