Joe Biden Should Be Impeached for Stealing the 2020 Election
"Does stealing an election constitute an impeachable offense. Does it rise to that level. I absolutely and i think that that's also a ground That joe biden a should be impeached when we look at the All of the evidence that has come out across multiple states and especially as these audits are ongoing and many state legislatures. Now are leading efforts to de certify their electoral votes obviously a joe biden was constitutionally installed. What i mean by that is that congress did count the electoral votes on certifications that purported to be accurate but when the state legislatures have gone back and actually had time to review this even though of course they refused to act in the very short period of time. that i had as an advocate for president trump and of course his legal counsel In that short timeframe Up and before january sex when they were counted when the state legislatures and if they do ultimately decertify this and say yeah this was a false assessment and these these votes were not counted. According to our state law then absolutely congress must act on the understanding that now we have an improperly constitutionally installed president and i do believe that that is grounds for impeachment whether or not we have a specific link or nexus to joe biden. Whether or not he knew this was going on. Whether or not he was a participant congress will still have to deal with us and fashion a constitutionally appropriate remedy to the people who are like. Well this will create a constitutional crisis. Got news for you. Were already in a constitutional

Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of Ruling That Overturned Boston Marathon Bomber's Death Sentence
"Radio boston. I'm donna deering and we start today with another major development in the country's largest drug lab scandal suffolk. County district attorney. Rachel rollins says that her office could vacate up to tens of thousands more criminal convictions. That were based on drug evidence tested at the now closed hinton lab. Wbu our senior correspondent. Deborah becker is reporting on the story. Deb joins us now dead. Welcome back to radio boston. Thanks for having me so deb. D. rollins is proposing to vacate any drug convictions based on results. From the hinton lab from may two thousand three to august two thousand twelve why that nine year time window will. That was the time period when two chemists worked at the hinton lab at the same time. Any dukan and sony ferrick you may remember. Both women were convicted on charges of tampering. With the drug evidence they were supposed to be testing fair conviction though stemmed from her work at the state lab in amherst but both women worked at the hinton lab. At one time. Eric worked there before she went to amherst. Rollin says what's needed is a more thorough review of all the drugs certifications that came from the hinton lab wild. Both women were working there. She calls the drug lab scandal. Systemic misconduct and a catastrophic failure of management that she says needs a complete review so all the testing done at that lab during that time should be looked at and we should point out that after both chemists were convicted tens of thousands of criminal drug convict. Convictions were dismissed because of their misconduct. We're talking about more. Give us a sense of scale here. Deb how many people might this effect will will. There's no precise number but rollins office says is that the hinton lab certified almost eighty three thousand drug samples for evidence during that time and that was in suffolk county and the massachusetts supreme judicial court which has reviewed various challenges and calls for a way to deal with all of the cases in both labs has vacated thousands of convictions based on the testing and hidden lab alone about eight thousand from hinton so the remaining seventy four thousand drug certifications that rollins talking about from suffolk county. She says her office is going to review all of those and they could be part of what she says is a global resolution to deal with these cases once and for all and thousands more convictions could be erased. But there's no exact number because one drug certification could have several drug certifications could have been done for one case so. The exact number is unclear. Got it got it. But it's it's a lot to review. So how does it work are they. Are they essentially starting deb with the assumption that all the convictions must be vacated and then working backward from there as they review the cases. How are they gonna do this well. She says she's going to convene robin says. She's going to convene a summit next month with the defense bar to start this review look at every affected case all the drugs certifications and determine next steps and she says any relief in what she's calling her hinton lab initiative is only for controlled substances convictions. And if someone was charged with something else along with drug use or possession or whatever the drug charges may have been those charges withstand this would only be drug charges in a particular case and then after that they would look at expunging records. If need be it would be a very lengthy complicated process. So our defense attorneys reacting to this well The aclu the american civil liberties union of massachusetts which was the agency really primarily involved in fighting with the s sjc to try to get some sort of resolution for many of these cases that were based on evidence tested at the hinton lab and at the amherst lab. It says it is. It's pleased that rollins has done. This here is matt siegel whose legal counsel for the aclu of massachusetts certainly would our preference and the preference of the public defenders are law firm partners for all of these cases have been dismissed when we first started calling for that step in twenty twelve. There's a saying about the arch of justice and At this point were very glad that seems to be bending in the right direction. I think as referring there to the you know the arc of the moral universals long but it bends toward justice but regardless also the State criminal defender agency. The committee for public counsel services released a statement after They heard about rachel rollins initiative the hidden lab and it also said that. It's pleased that this is happening. And it hopes that other district attorneys will do the same. So will they deb. Do you think we'll other. Da's follow suit. And i guess. I'm wondering if somehow this forces their hands if they have to. Now i don't think anyone necessarily

"For tenants. Rights is both Seattle and the state.

I think this power imbalance, but landlord and realtor Natalie Burnett says further allowing tenants to avoid eviction will have dire consequences as frustrated owners simply sell their rental properties.

Virginia voter registration extended after website crash
"Election. 2020 Virginia voters got an extra day this year to register to vote. Sabrina Marino of the Richmond Times. Dispatch joins us on this story, Sabrina Marino explained what happened yesterday that led to today's extension. Yeah. So you know, yesterday with the whirlwind, as with everything nowadays, it kind of started with the tweets. And so yesterday morning, the Virginia Department of Elections posted that Horizon Cable was cut near the headquarters of an agency that you know, provided technical support for various states. Entities, you know, including the Virginia Department of Health and Virginia Employment Commission and, of course, the Virginia Department of Elections. So, basically the elections website crashed, which meant that on the last day for Jenny residents coded register to vote, they couldn't online for several hours and then also impacted. Early in person voting with Freddie Starr's offices statewide, you know, fighting that they couldn't access the full books or verify voter eligibility, and even though it was prepared by 3 30 called it already mounted to extended registration deadline, which is something that the governor did not have the authority to do and said So in his briefing, and then hours later, a lawsuit was filed. How is that cable cut? So there was a roadside utilities project in Chesterfield County, and, you know, they released a statement kind of thing that it was quote. Inadvertently struck and there's not more information other than not, and they're saying it was an accident. And that roadside utilities project is a super installation. And that happened in the early morning yesterday and that part of you been in the works since May. And it was right next to the headquarters of the major agency. That kind of is the you know, the technical support for for a lot of state agencies. So their website crashed. You mentioned the governor's involvement here. How hard is it to change a voter registration deadline in the Old Dominion? So from what I've done will be gathered. It's pretty difficult and you know, they're the governor's legal counsel, said yesterday in the briefing that they don't have the authority to just change the registration deadline that is in, you know in the state coat and that on DH You know they were talking about how that is kind of litigation. It takes the courts and they couldn't violet themselves. They sighted legal procedures for that, and So it takes litigation where it takes the General Assembly and so happened back in 2016. There was a computer glitch right before the 2016 election also occurred. You know, in October and there was There's a lawsuit filed again and back then Virginians were given a 36 hour extension to register. But back then it was, you know, a plaintiff has to file the lost two and both times the lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under law was the person who filed it on behalf of you know, advocacy groups and people who kind of register to vote. Is there any way of finding out who tried to register yesterday and couldn't and to reach out to them or what's being done to let them know about the extension through tomorrow? Yeah, so right now we do not have You know specific numbers of how many people weren't able to vote. But the lawsuit was filed with the intent to explain how this is out of voters of control and that the website crashing impacted thousands of voters with a disproportionate impact on black, indigenous and Latino people. And so part of the lawsuit Also included that Register's office. State officials had to issue press releases by 11:38 A.m. this morning, you know, kind of for local writer Sharp to be notified of this order. And so that was also a part of what the federal judge ruled today was, you know? Yes, we're extending the deadline and Virginia 11 59 on Thursday, but You also have to issue project leases. And so that was a way to kind of push the state butt and make sure that you know registrars were aware that this extension was granted and that people could be registering to vote, You know, passed yesterday deadline. Was there Anybody arguing against the extension? So we haven't seen it yet? Of course. We were seeing new kind of change by the hour. But, you know, even Republicans were plotting decision and they weren't at the Sarah. We You know, having pushed back against the decision, but against Northern administration, they said that it was a failure of the states for letting this happen. And even the defendant, Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner this morning said that you know this kid eligible Virginia's additional time to register or update their current voter registration record, and in a statement, the Republican Party You know, kind of made a joke that was like, you know, make sure next time you call Miss Utility and so and then I've been different than other states. You know, in Florida, there was pushback when lost me. Their registration deadline was pushed and challenged in the courts. And but we're not really seeing that right now with Virginia, with the exception that the Republican Party Did say that it was Northern Administration's fault. And besides that I have not seen pushback otherwise is their efforts to ensure that the voter registration system isn't tied to one cable in the future. Or is that something we're expecting in the coming days and weeks? Yeah. So in the briefing yesterday, Some of the Northern administration was talking about how you know this cable would put on a 10 gigabyte circuit and it was placed in the spring due to Corbett because of the increased workload because of You know a lot of traffic, a lot of people working from home, so they needed a backup, but the back of To that was not strong enough. And with the innovation of people going to register online, you know the backup wasn't enough. And so that's what they were kind of explaining, And they said, you know that they're working on pushing. So in the event that something like this were to happen, the backup would be able T sustain it and so That's kind of where we're at right now. And and yeah, and that's why that's why they were thinking. All right. Next time. You need a better backup. Um, but us for next step. We haven't heard much on that. Sabrina Marino

So Dekel Inc so much for being with us. Absolutely, thank you very much for having me. So why don't we start with the Genesis of it? All Dekel what got you into healthcare? We'll you know solids. It's funny I don't recall ever making a conscious decision to get into healthcare. You know about ten years ago I was in the peak of my career as a corporate attorney I, represented many of the entrepreneurs basically that are in position that I am right now and I guess I always wanted to be on the side that created value rather than helping others create. Value, the medical space itself has so many opportunities for creating value. What's almost guaranteed that this space is that the value that you're creating is going to impact people's lives in the most significant way. Possible. So ten years ago when I met Multi Schneider Bergen or wolf the CO founders of FDA in when I heard, what they're trying to do I saw unbelievable value immediately left my comfortable job and teamed up with them to pursue our mission, which is saving lives of kids with rare diseases. Well, I think it's it's it's fabulous that you took that risk that goal and. Your Rear View Mirror. There was no looking forward. There is no guarantee of success in looking back now you're like, wow, this thing workout. So you know you you've been through a lot of different things. Now, a lot of different companies as well. I love to hear from you what you believe needs to be forefront on the mind of leaders agend doesn't healthcare and how are you an FDA approaching it. So today I'm a bit biased towards this subject, but I think that every medical leader should be considering how A. Fits. into their agenda, whatever it is specifically, there are a number of topics that we pay a lot of attention to, and I, think that everyone should first and foremost how to separate the hope from the hype. So in other words, what can I actually do and what it can do I? Think that's even more important to understand and realize you need to understand what to embrace in what to reject. So that distinction is extremely important for any medical leaders agenda beyond that this falls kind of into the subcategories of AI is. How to control the quality of data everyone knows the saying garbage in garbage out. So how do we avoid biases inequities that are inherent in in a I artificial intelligence then and this is a little bit more specific to the medical space. How do you integrate a successfully into the workflow in the medical space? Specifically in healthcare professionals workflow that that really is extremely important. I can't really emphasize how important that is and another thing that I think should be important for for medical leaders when considering a I is starting. To talk about how to share data because if we don't share data, we ended up working in silos and that kind of ties back into the biases, the inequities and other really bad stuff that is associated with a unfortunately, and finally you know being an ex lawyer, I always preoccupied with the legality and ethics specifically in this evolving space where the legislators are lagging. So we have the think as as leaders we have to take corporate responsibility in think how we form this this new fields fuel dekel

Students for Life activists arrested for defacing Black Lives Matter mural
"Joining us right now, Kristen Hawkins, who is president of students for life. Of America and Kristin to ofyour activists were arrested this past weekend. Right here in Washington. D C. Good morning. Why were they arrested? Good morning. Thanks for having me today. Yeah, we What? Out Saturday. It was national pro life generation sidewalks. So we had students across the country going to Planned Parenthood. Another abortion, silly, praying counsel women. Our team went out there to paint the street to say black, pre born lives matter. We had written the mayor sensor there had painted the streets of the seed black lives matter and allow the group of asked for this. Add on her paintings to say deep on the police, and she allowed him to do that, with how the formal on to do with permanently we had written, the mayor asked her to allow us the same light as she allowed the other activists. We have spoken with them done on that perm it the police called us NASA's issues. Temporary paint, which we complied with. We've got out there for him on Saturday and had six squad cars waiting for threatening the rest. If you are To attempt to put anything on the street. So being activists we have a backup plan it sidewalk chalk with us. We do this all the time. One of our team members Warner, who actually counted upon the pregnancy there every Saturday and sidewalk chalk every single Saturday. Began to sidewalk chalk, black reborn lives matter in front of the planned Parenthood on the sidewalk. Not on the street. Ah, one with one eye open university, Erica Catelyn, and the police arrested them for simply sidewalk, chalking and I want to make sure I understand this correctly. You did ask for a Permit. It sounds like it was granted you then here to what they told you to do, which is used temporary paint, and it sounds based on you applying for that permit that the police knew in advance when you were going to be there, And when you plan to paint this is that how they knew you were going to be there and with it already predetermined. Do you think by the police that they plan to arrest you? If you did anything to the sidewalk, including writing black black lives matter, even if it was done in shock. Umm Yeah, we had written their advance of getting the permit telling her, you know, we we know you have opened the streets up now to public expression. You can't discriminate based on you know what messages painted in the streets. We would like you to extend us the same rights and we gave her deadline and we said we're going to be out there Saturday. All his first and father planned parent heart. If you do not respond, we will take that as acceptance that you know what we're doing. And in fact, her office the mayor's office, I contacted D C special events office who then contacted our team. We got a permit to assemble because you have to have a permit. We had to have a committee. Cirio assemble. 50 people are under wearing masks, social distancing. We've got that permit. The police officers called us asked us to please use temporary paint, which we complied with. But that's how they knew where we could be out there on and we got pretty loud and clear the mayor's answers when she had six Claude cars leading for us, and when we asked the police officers on the scene You know who they were Reporting to who? Their boss wise thie officer in charge directly responded the mayor. Amazing. Amazing, So they just used your attempts to be good citizens as in as a road map to find you and then to eventually arrest your activists in all of this, Kristen, you know, One thing that really sticks out to me is the disparate treatment that your group has received, as when it comes to free expression in the district. So you mentioned it before. But it bears repeating right next to the mural that Miria ll Bowser authorized, which was defunded mystery, which was black Lives matter. She's put it right in front of the White House in giant letters, activist Black lives matter. Activists came in and added, defund the police of their own accord. They they did that without a permit. They just put it right next to the black lives matter, and they put it in permanent paint on the ground immediately in front of the White House. Rather than punish those people. Miriam Bastard gave them the OK after it was over. Those words are still painted on the ground right now in front of the White House and have been for the last month or two. Meanwhile, you're activists used shock on the sidewalk and were arrested. It's starting to sound like you have grounds for a lawsuit. Are you going to file one? Absolutely. This is clear viewpoint discrimination. Our team has been flooded with requests for legal aid groups have been coming in saying We will help you sue the city because this is a slam dunk. Constitutional First Amendment case, and we believe it is so we we have our own in house legal counsel that we work with. We were hiring criminal defense attorneys for morning Erica the two individuals who were arrested for sidewalk talking, and then we're also bringing on a team of lawyers who will be handling our First Amendment federal lawsuit against the city and the mayor. And Chris and I also want to ask about the message that you were sending out the message that was chalked, which is Moon black. Pre boy born lives matter. How has that message been received by people when you point out the fact that so many black Children are aborted in our country that I mean that's what's so sad. If you think about this case, while Warner and Erica are being arrested and being processed and book to Metro police Planned Parenthood on Saturday across the nation ended alive of 360 black Children. That is what they dio every single day for out of five Planned Parenthood locations are in walking distance from minority dense population. The abortion rate for black women is five times higher than white women. It is very clear that not only does planned Parenthood and now their own employees are admitting that Planned Parenthood has a racist past with their founder, Margaret Sanger, who was a genesis to believe that birth control and sterilization was a solution to a limiting what people she called human leads, but they also have a racist. Present and it needs to be addressed right now. This is an important conversation happening within our nation, and we want to add to that conversation would say absolutely black lives matter. The one you say black lives matter. We also mean lives that had not only been born, but lives are in the wounds are freeborn minds their lives that are about to be born, you know, or Children that are about to be born. You've got Kanye West in recent days talking about this is well, he tweeted just a couple days ago. Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years. I'm not sure of his numbers are right, but he definitely is getting to a real issue on DH. He also tweeted I cried at the thought of a boarding my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me. I'm concerned for the world that feels you shouldn't cry about this subject. What's your reaction to seeing Kanye West to come along and say, Yeah, this is a real issue. Yeah. I mean, I think this is a very raw and emotional issue for so many Americans. I think it is so sad to see. So I watched, you know, Campaign speech in South Carolina. He broke down, crying, talking about how he himself was almost aborted by his mother on then how this discussion happened with his firstborn child, whether or not to abort her and end her life. I think that resonated with millions of Americans. I mean, I meet people all the time you say I was on the operating table and I gotta walk out. I don't know why I do I You know, I didn't have the money. I was scared to death. But I just knew I couldn't have the abortion. And no day goes by that. I'm not grateful for making that. Choice for life, so I think what it was so well. It was so emotional. I think it regulated with so many Americans. Why do you think it's very sad? I was really something in Hollywood. You know articles about what car long with Connie West? Yes, Conquest is crazy and one I think we need to be very careful about how we label people crazy. This mental health in a very real concern in our names, and we shouldn't be labeling people who may have been, you know. Late diagnosis by Paul Alors crazy and it's okay. And it's okay to admit that some people have it. Thank you, Cristian. Sorry. Just cause we're out of time. But it is okay to stay. Some people have it right on some issues and wrong on others.

"I mean, obviously, you know, legal counsel, you know, since I wasn't injured, it's probably of no Andhra. That's right. That's right. That's the rule. We've always learn. From personal injury. Lawyers involving food items is that if you're just grossed out by it, but you did not consume it. You don't have anything that's of interest to them. But it is of great interest to the food manufacturer and the retailer just to make sure they don't end up with bad publicity or a lawsuit or anything like that. Do you use social media? Have you posted this? On social media. I have I have posted. Yeah, a nim. Itch of what I found. Yes, I have. And people are completely freaking out, aren't they? Well, yeah, because, you know, I mean, this is like a very you know, one of those brands that you don't even think twice. You know, it's not a discount Brown. It's a great brand of eyestrain. Unfortunately, these impurities can happen with any brand brand discriminatory, And they have no idea how it could have gotten in there where that industrial tack would have come from. From machinery or whatever. So I would go ahead on good faith and call the manufacturer on call the retailer both and I would I would post their responses on social media as well. Okay. What do you want from them? What matters to you? Well for me right now, What really matters is that wherever the source is, it's located, So suppose there's more of these in ice cream is a lot the lot on the ice cream itself. Is on there. You know, there'll be a lot number. Yeah, I have all that information. I wrote it down. I even kept the receipt in everything from where we bought the ice cream And And and also, Yeah, all the info on the box. I mean, basically, as soon as that happened, we put the ice cream in the box of ice cream. Whether was left and into a this log container. It's in my freezer right now. All right, Well, then I want you. I want to get to it, calling both of them. Ah, very careful turning the quote unquote evidence over to the food manufacturer if they want it because you don't know if they're trying to cover up or whatever you have you in a video of it, make the decision you want based on how you feel they're handling it Also. Since it's ice cream. We're going to find out for you, which agency You governmental agency. You file a complaint with because I don't know for ice cream, So I want to make sure it's the right place and put you on hold and we're going to get you that information and then I'd like you to do one other Simon. That's when you've run the course with the food manufacturer in the retailer and love for you to come back and report On what actually transpires through this process. Okay, I would love to do that. I have a question about contacting the manufacturers since there. I mean, these are big entities. How do I go about that? Do you on yourself on the package itself or on their Web site? There will be a number. Okay. And the same would apply to the big box store. I purchased it. Yes. And by the way we already have. The answer Is Theis FDA? Uh, that? Yeah, I'm sorry. The FDA only regulates ice cream That does not contain eggs. So you'd have to look at the ingredients and see if there if there's any exit. This was plain old fashioned vanilla. Okay, see? So look at that label. Probably does not have eggs in it. I don't know. I know nothing about what am I talking about? You're so check that and I will make sure that you know the right people if it's not the FDA, but no food safety has been so much in the news lately with the recalls of various products that have put people's health at risk. This is something that if it's widespread, could cause great harm to people but is hopefully More likely on isolated thing with having an industrial tack in the ice cream.

Dr Disrespect's Twitch Ban: Hugely Popular Streamer Has Finally Spoken
"Dr Disrespect participates in interviews, but still hasn't explained why he was banned. Former popular twitch stream or Guy Dr. disrespect beam was very publicly banned from twitch a few weeks ago, but even today the reasons for the ban are unclear. Rumors point to illegal activity pr stunts and other potential, completely unverified well reasons, but the normally boisterous Internet personality has basically been silent until today in what appears to be a coordinated PR effort. A handful of websites published interviews with him, but he had no specifics to offer about his ban. Beam spoke with the Washington Post's Noah. Smith and Smith wrote about the interview pressed on questions, regarding his removal from twitch or his next steps, he frequently followed advice from his legal counsel to remain silent. I've been dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety beam told the Post. You know my wife and I, both this is our livelihood. We worked really hard to get to this point. Let's just say I've felt all of the emotions that you could possibly feel. Beam maintains. He still doesn't know why. Twitch effectively voided his contract just a few months into a two year exclusivity. First reported on by the verge, honestly, we just don't know. Being told the Post. It was a total shock imagined showing up to work. The doors are closed and you can't get inside. You're going what's going on, and you've been told you've been fired, but you haven't been told the reason why. We just weren't given an answer. It was the worst feeling that story is linked in the show notes as is PC gamers. Interviewer beam spoke with Steven. Messner, in terms of what's happening right now. Beamed told PC Gamer you know while it's unfortunate that I'm off. Twitch were definitely working behind the scenes. Scenes on what a doctor! Return might look like in terms of specifics around that. We're not interested in exclusive. At this point, we're exploring options and honestly just can't wait to get back into character soon. We have a lot to do an album wherever fans want me to be and know that's been our approach. This whole doctor disrespect event has just been so strange twitch only temporarily banned him. When he streamed from a public restroom at e three, twenty, nineteen, which was illegal in one hundred percent against twitches, code of conduct policies, and then after the air cleared, they signed a very expensive. Deal with them, so whatever caused him to get fully completely banned. It had to be big. Either that or twitch really and truly is being more cutthroat when it comes to policing, it's community which I think would be a good thing. I also I just don't buy that. He doesn't know why he was banned. He has lawyers nearby, telling them not to talk about it too much. which really makes me raise an eyebrow at all this? The reason for Dr Disrespects. Ban has truly become the new half life three Internet meme I hope we learn more someday if for no other reason than to satiate my own personal curiosity.

"legal counsel" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Of an obstruction case where somebody says, please go easy on the man. I mean, when I was a US attorney, I must have had that said to me, you know, twenty times give him a break think about his conduct to the government. Think about his being a general goes very normal conversations that are not obstruction of anything if the president was inclined to obstruct he would've ordered them to do it. He could have not done it himself, just drop the case. So I think offers the legal counsel went through each one of the two or three situations like that the firing of Komi. Well, he had ten good reasons to fire Comey. And and that's his prerogative under article two of the constitution. The one by tweet is the silliest thing I've ever heard. I mean, these are public comments designed to defend yourself against what are now turns out to be false charges and their series. At least what it seemed to be their theory was oh he was sending signals to witnesses. Well, if you were to prosecute him for struck by tweet a man couldn't defend himself in public, right? Somebody could say, you know, I robbed the Bank, and if I say, no, I was at home with three people, then I'd be accused of obstructing Justice by giving that information to three people. So I have to believe the office of legal counsel, basically said there's nothing you can prosecute here as obstruction. So we know that the next paragraph of the letter says the. This is again from Bill bar, the attorney general the special counsel decision to describe the facts of his obstruction investigation without reaching any legal conclusion leaves it to the attorney general to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime over the course of the investigation, a special counsel's office engaged in discussions with certain department officials regarding many of the legal and factual matters at issue in the special counsels obstruction investigation after reviewing the special counsel's final report on these issues consulting with the department officials, including the office of legal counsel, as you mentioned and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide are charging decisions deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the special counsel investigation is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of Justice defense artists termination was made without regard to and is not based on constitutional considerations that surround the indictment and criminal prosecution of a sitting. President what the what Bill bars referring to? There is the department of Justice guidelines say you cannot indicted sitting president, but he's saying that's not the basis upon which we decided not to go forward the basis we decided not to go forward here. I think this is really important is because we looked at the facts and evidence and the law and concluded there was no basis to establish an obstruction claim against the president. That's about as clear as precise was vindicated. You can possibly be. And then I'll add one other thing to it. How scandalous would it be if they were to charge the president United States with obstruction? And he didn't he didn't. He didn't. He did not destroy thirty thousand emails he did not destroy his service. He did not have hammers and break up his phones as that guy did for for Hillary. He didn't fire the special counsel, homey. Komi would have to be asked. You said all that activity that no prosecutor would prosecute a case, including. Case of obstruction against Hillary Clinton when she deleted thirty thousand emails, and you took a hammer to her cell phones. We didn't do that that didn't happen here. He turned over one point four million documents. He didn't object to forty witnesses every single piece of paper, they wanted you know, this because they got it. They got every single piece of paper, they want it. Nobody destroyed anything. Nobody held anything back. It would have been a major scandal. If they were to try to bring a case based on obstruction when they didn't bring it against Hillary where she conduct was. She was involved in numerous of struggle. Vacs. Jordan is that the issue that some on the left are still trying to grab onto -solutely. Absolutely. They say, oh, we want to know all the information. What they don't like is that Bob Muller did his job as special counsel. Didn't was not some liberal hero savior. That was going to do something outside the bounds of the normal procedures. And try to expand his. Power under the department of Justice, which is not an independent council. He's a special counsel. So he again, they I think are very upset one with Bob Muller, the left, they they championed him. They made him out to be a hero. I think you always have to cautious making government. Prosecutors have to be heroes because a partisan reasons for partisan reasons is one thing, you know, to take down bad people and crime. Okay. Great. But for partisan reasons to make them a hero. I because these are people that follow the laws the evidence in the fact, what did he do with this matter? He said we couldn't put enough evidence. Together, we didn't have enough evidence. So you know, what I can't make this decision. I'm going to have to give this over to the attorney general which he did voluntarily a Bob Muller allowed Bill Bart to to make the call on this Bill bar made the call it without having going the easy way. The easy way would have said it doesn't matter because a sitting president as our during our policy. You can't be prosecuted while they're in office. So that would be the easy way. But they explained that the footnote that's not how they judge you by if if was there enough evidence that a criminal prosecution could be brought against President Trump answer from Bill bar, rod Rosenstein and the DOJ office of legal counsel because Bob Muller asked them.

That is now coming available to us is that it is becoming increasingly clear that the FIS warrants obtained to spy on Americans volved in a political campaign may very well have been and I am certain they were at this point obtained under false premises. False premises.

But in the shorter term of the president is playing I guess, you could say to maybe three level chess with these folks, that's what I believe at this moment, President Trump abruptly postponing speaker, Nancy Pelosi's planned foreign trip as she was ready to jet out of the country, the president saying, however, he sorry to inform Nancy and the rest of the Democrats traveling with her. The left wing leader that her overseas excursion would be rescheduled over the government shutdown. That's right. President Trump today appeared to deny military aircraft to house speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart in a stunning response to her call to delay the state of the union address amid the government shutdown quote due to the shutdown. I'm sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven day excursion when the shutdown is over in light of the eight hundred thousand great American workers, not receiving pay. I am sure you would agree the president communicated that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate. End quote. Quote. I also feel that during this period during this period. It would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the strong border security movement to end the shutdown, obviously if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial that would certainly be your prerogative end quote.

It was a violation of the campaign finance laws and very possibly other laws like money laundering. And Bank fraud. So many interesting came came out on court today, we learned that not Michael Cohen wasn't alone in an early meeting. I think it was in two thousand and fifteen with David pecker. There were there was at least one other person from the Trump campaign, according to to what came out in court and the agreement that AM I has signed that they have said is true. So there's somebody else who was aware of this deal with AM I to help out the Trump campaign, and there's another executive who wasn't named today. But an executive executive number two who also who was told by the chief financial officer of the Trump organization to pay the money out of a trust that and that's where the money that was repaid to Michael Kohn came from. So there's other people we don't know the identities yet, but who are involved in this very very significant Anderson that the Trump organization is direc-. Actually involved in implicated now. Alan Wessel, Burg as you said earlier is now cooperating nobody knows where the money has gone better than he does the of the Trump organization, and so that business enterprise is beginning to look like eight criminal racketeering enterprise in the classic sense of the word, and the federal authorities could well be going after it with additional indictments of those individuals who were in the room or had other knowledge and just a really important point here. They can be indicted. There's no constitutional bar to indict them or Donald Trump's inner circle like his family, and I believe very strongly that the president self can be indicted is no constitutional bar to it. I'm gonna be asking the office of legal counsel for an opinion that in effect retracts its prior opinion indicating. The president cannot be diet because I think the president himself could be indicted if only to stop the statute of limitations from running statute of limitations that if he is reelected. I think the essential limitations for this would be up in twenty twenty one. So if he's re-elected if you can indicted sitting president it would run out. I would argue that there's a continuing conspiracy that in effect surrounds this statute of limitations. But that's a hurdle that shouldn't be even raised if the president and dieted the charges could be field or they could be postponed for court appearances to avoid burden on the presidency. They could be tried after the president finishes his term of office, even if they're broad while he is president as I believe they could well be now, that's an active discretion by the prosecutors the southern district New York, which we should all be aware is different from the special prosecutor.

"CNN. Breaking news tonight. Some key Democrats are calling on the Justice department to reexamine the precedent that a sitting president should not being diverted one of them congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking the ranking member should say the house intelligence committee. Here's what Senator Richard Blumenthal said just earlier tonight on the program. I'm going to be asking the office of legal counsel, for an opinion that in effect retracts its prior opinion, indicating that the president cannot be diet because I think the president himself can be indicted. If only stop the statute of limitations from running some Democrats are making the case after what we learned today when Michael Cohen, the president's former attorney was sentenced to three years in prison for his crimes as we mentioned earlier Coen spoke about the president today telling the judge, quote, I felt it was my duty to cover up his deeds. Joining me now for his legal taking all this. Neal Coty all the former acting solicitor general during the Obama administration. Neil g agree with congressman Schiff and Senator Blumenthal. The Justice Barbara needs to reexamine its guidelines that a sitting president camping dated. I do. So let's put this in context. So, you know, I think as your last guest showed there's kind of been sputtering defense by the Trump team about this. I Trump said, you know, I had nothing to do with those payments that was proven false. Then a second defense was why didn't have the criminal intent to do. So. But now Michael Cohen and today have you been talking about the National Enquirer has said, no this was for the purpose of influence in the election. So now, we've gone to the third this get out of jail free card argument that because the Trump is saying I'm the president therefore under the constitution. I can't be indicted. And I think the first thing to say about that is, you know, it's quite remarkable that you have Donald Trump a guy who hasn't really cared one whit about the constitution. All of a sudden magically discovering, this grand document and finding the Senate. I mean, it's not like this is like, you know, William Rehnquist, or, you know, Robert Jackson, dad, Jack Danforth or something finding this. This is. Self interested suspicious claim, and so I agree congressman Schiff is right to say, you know, the Justice department should really look at this because it's generic guidance. It's not a precedent or anything. It's just some generic guidance saying sitting presidents, and general shouldn't be indicted. But I don't think that necessarily applies to this situation. One of these guidelines exist in the first place is it. I mean, it does make it seem like the president somehow above the law like he's got, you know, get out of jail free card. Right. So I think both of these opinions nine hundred seventy three two thousand and take care to say, no, that's not what's going on. Probably. Our most cardinal legal principle is no person is about the law. So what they say is there should be some temporary immunity while the person is president. But I think it's notable that those have two problems for Trump one is that that's generic about crimes committed while in office this crimes here. The allegations these very serious campaign finance violations that the career prosecutors in New York, not the molar team or pointing out our Goto how the Donald Trump became president in the first place, and I think that's an important distinction. Because I think, you know, it's it's third world countries and other places in which you have all sorts of cheating during the election, actually, an incentive to cheat even more because if you win the presidency, then you get that gay to get out of jail free card. Then manifestly is not the constitution of the United States. I don't think how exander Hamilton and James Madison broke from King, George the third only to install a president who can cheat and lie during the campaign again, if these allegations turn out to be right, and then win the magic prize and then have get out of jail free card. That's not our constitution. Some congressional Democrats. Have recently interviews been talking about the line between impeachable offense and offense that justifies impeachment. Is there a difference too? Well, I think the seminal work on this by Charles black on impeachment said, you know, certainly if it's a crime like a felony serious felony that is going to meet the standard for high crime and misdemeanor. So one thing, you know, one consequence of the president saying, I'm above the law, the criminal law eve all the scholars those to Justice, permanent pinions say that say, well, if.

This is Adam Alinsky in the spring of nineteen sixty three. He was just beginning a career at the office of legal counsel under the attorney general, Robert F Kennedy. And I got an assignment. There was a guy named AJ musty. AJ musty was a great piece crusader, and he was in his eighties. And he announced. That he was going to lead a March peace, March from Washington to Guantanamo. So he was going to walk from Washington all the way to Florida with, you know, if you follow us and then they were gonna get on a boat and go to Guantanamo. And they were going to say, we should have peace between the United States and Cuba, but this was the middle of the Cold War Cuba was an enemy. And so the Justice department decided to seek an injunction to try to stop us from going on his protests. And I was given the papers to review. The papers have to be personally signed by the attorney general. So in this case they ought to be signed by Robert F Kennedy. And he said, let me get destroyed. There's an eighty year old man. Wants to walk all the way down in Florida and then go to Cuba because he says it'll help bring peace. And you want me to sign a piece of paper that says, we're not gonna. Let him do that. He said, fuck it. I'm not gonna site that Apor just threw it back to be. That was the end of it. And I was just stunned, I was just done. I couldn't. I just, I couldn't believe it.

"As we can respective of what their their conduct was that's i think discredited philosophy that he has put back in place before i get to an audience question general holder there's also been this question about the president and pardons whether the president has the right to pardon himself i feel like part of the conversation is facing in the wrong direction presidents don't have rights citizens have rights presidents have powers and they have to use them responsibly or they will lose them what do you think about the power of the president to pardon well they're the notion that the president could pardon himself is is almost laughable if you look at there's an office legal counsel opinion out of the justice department that says the president cannot pardon himself the pardon power is is an awesome one it's basically something that is almost unchecked but the notion that a president could put himself above the law by pardoning himself is distant with with the framers intended is inconsistent with our notions of our notions of justice but if the president did try to part himself as they're really anything that the doj could do i mean they're a branch of the of the administration don't they just have to kind of go along with it is there anything they could do well i'm sure that if the president tried to pardon himself there would be somebody would try to file a lawsuit of of some kind to challenge the validity of that of that pardon might be the special counsel could be the justice department i don't know exactly who you know who would bring the lawsuit and i suspect that as wound its way through the courts and ultimately was decided by the supreme court that the president's attempt to pardon himself would would be ruled unconstitutional so it might end up being a moment where the doj might have to deal with it maybe the solicitor general would have to deal with it if it came to the supreme court but it it's it's like what people keep describing a constitutional crisis it would take us to a place we've never been oh that's absolutely right.

"Could still name the president as an unindicted coconspirator while indicting others and a number of these potential crimes obviously involve a potential conspiracy so it wouldn't just beat the president acting alone and that's another way in which this might play out and then the third is it is true that the justice department is operating under their own guidelines an opinion from the two opinions from the office of legal counsel that a sitting president kennedy indicted but is also true that once he leaves office he could be indicted and even those officer legal counsel opinions sayso so i do think if this is the time for the investigation and there's a later time for an indictment that might also be the game that rubber muller is forced to play in a certain sense well let's talk a little bit of politics before we let you go ryan because it is a big part of this the president calls these leaks disgraceful he seems to be suggesting that they may have come from within robert muller's team i don't know if there's any actual evidence of that i'm asking you to speculate of course but do you think these leaks came from robert muller his team i think it's highly highly unlikely at almost like that's the last place i would look the one thing that most close observers have said about this intern vestich in is how tight lid muller has kept on any leaks coming out of his team and there've been so many surprises in terms of plea agreements that had been made months earlier when they're slows the public everybody's just amazed that there would just be no leaking out of the team so it seems like the president is raising something of which i've i've no evidence out there in the public that would even be able to build any kind of an inference that came from team there's much more speculation that came from people in his side or people who are even trying to help him help himself by putting it out in the public so that he will see all these kinds of commentaries and realize that it's not in his.

"Pardon himself essentially the same person can't be judge and jury in the same case and that's a long held established principle in um american jurisprudence positive adversary yep and just explained to folks at the significance of the office of legal counsel with i mean so the office of legal counsel they really are the ones who interpret the law for the united states department of justice and for the president when it comes to questions like this it is unbelievably important office and generally as a last word and so when you look at who argues cases before the supreme court ah comes out of the office of legal counsel at the solicitor general's office works closely with them but a well see they're really in charge of driving the policy and what the interpretation of the law is and so that would be big deal it's a big deal that's a better way said zia blue love cut the other side those who vows look because i am in people in the president's waits for people to get into identity pardons them is that in any way possible to be brought into an obstruction case so it seems very odd i mean i i think the short answer is probably know homes of the second part of question gets to a point that a lot of people have made it's worth spending a minute or two on it and that is the president can pardon other people in connection with a federal charge but we have we have a federal system here so there are federal prosecutors and federal laws and also local and state laws and so if any member of donald trump's administration associates or family members is charged by a state attorney general or a district attorney the constitution is not given the right to that that has to be done by the governor of the state if at all and so the theory has been circulating that bob mother has made an arrangement with the new york attorney general eric schneidermann with whom i worked when i was use attorney to ensure the inability of the president to derail accountability because there will also be the state charges and that's a beautiful and intelligent and crafty marriage that has taken.

"This thing that happened to me is not going to serve your well now if you see that there's a a pattern of this kind of thing happening to with a certain person or certain can employer i can see that the reason why you might want to speak up for that same way you don't want to state quite about harassment and other things is porridge that i feel like you have to keep everything sort of note to yourself but to go after the individual in something like this writer versus writer i don't see being good for you or for it eddie ryder around you yeah i think even in situations where perhaps speaking out publicly in advance of some kind of legal action would be called for i would still want to do so on the advice of legal counsel so i seek out the help of an attorney and the attorney says to me you know this is something where i think we need to apply pressure from two different avenues i'm going to foul lawsuit and i want you to go and say to people what's happened here because you have stuff to say and in that case what you don't have is somebody tweeting and equating feeling violated with being violated which are two different things particularly and when we talk about intellectual property and copyright infringement it's it's a matter of law it's not a matter feeling whatsoever and there are a lot of people with hurt feelings who have suit and lost or been sued and lost who still walk around with hurt feelings feeling violated but unfortunately the law was the law and that's how it worked so if you're legal advice i and i do i strongly suggest getting it in a case where you honestly believe you've you've been violated and they say that it's a good idea to go public than go public but otherwise i just don't see the upset i agree with you so let's talk about situations where you're not play lawsuit you feel frustrated you'll feel like they be used to tick like two out of the four check boxes on what do you do you got to move past it and that's i think a crucial dangerous at if you fixate on this one moment we feel like your idea was stolen but you don't think he could have of their.
