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. He's completely right on the issue of
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.

Husband of Los Angeles DA points gun at Black Lives Matter protesters
"We mentioned that Jackie Lacey is running to keep her title as district attorney she got emotionally emotional discussing this morning what happened saying that she received death threats and her husband's response was out of fear this is true the fact that the protesters showed up at her door and her gun on her husband then went outside and pointed a gun at them Sir did you commit a crime with us now is defense attorney and former LA county prosecutor Steve Meister and black lives matter protesters Melina Abdullah who was there this morning and had the gun pointed at her we did by the way reach out to Jackie Lacey but did not get a response Molina let's begin with you you were there explained to us briefly what happened sure so we've been protecting Jackie Lacey for two and a half years really for longer than that for her refusal to prosecute police five hundred eighty five people have been killed by police said she took office in she won't charge the officers to kill us and we come to her office every single Wednesday they've now barricaded the office for it there's usually maybe forty to fifty protesters on Wednesdays including the families of those who think kill so we don't have access to her at our office we can fight it heard it comes just south of Los Angeles and been supported in that invitation by the Stonewall democratic club and other democratic clubs who asked you to meet with black people in south Los Angeles she's refused and so on the eve of her re election you know after she did finally commit to the Stonewall Democrats credit club that she would meet with black people in south LA we said she hasn't done that she was supposed to do it by December first so you go I I want to speed it up a bit so you get to the property then what happens so then we set up twenty five chairs in the Golan rang her doorbell which is a rain system which means they can clearly see who's at the door she's very familiar with me and we didn't expect for her husband to open the door and pointed a gun at a were you are your groups threatening in any way now what we have done so far is ordered libations have a land acknowledgement and have for a year so that is the No Way intimidating or threatening to anyone in your feelings in that moment when he opens the door and he's got a gun in his hand already I don't know how I was able to push down the trauma but I was in the moment able to be pretty polite but I just had a moment where I burst into tears thinking about that I'm a mom of three kids this is not my job I heard Jackie Lacey say she wants to do her job this isn't my job this is what I believe is my sacred duty to protect the lives of my children and to stand up for my people and you know I've never had a gun pointed at people for and for it to be pointed at my chest with his finger on the trigger we heard impact it before you open the door you know that was pretty frightening Steve Meister did does the district attorney's husband commit a crime I don't think so and I think the only person I've heard so far who might need legal counsel is the person I just tricked speaking who admitted to committing trespass with a bunch of the people in the dark on someone's porch on private property away from the street forty minutes before the sun came up that's the route that's that's kind of the situation I see here two thirds of the defense Sears beds there's people on my property it's dark I feel threatened I bring my gun to the door with me I can point that someone well I think I think what the situation is going to be is what was clear is that protesters did not stay on the streets in it and some people there but there were several people in a covered porch concealed from public view concealed from the street forty minutes before the sun came up somehow or another alluding to homeowners to their presentation and there were numerous people on the porch and I think that that wherever an investigation goes with this I think an investigation should reasonably be undertaken of course but I I think that what a what what a prosecutor is going to have to consider in whether to bring charges against Mr Lacey is once the jury can I think and I think that for the people who were on the porch trying to revert to provoke a response I think the jury might H. jury might reasonably think well you got your response and you provoked a response and people had shown up on my porch at five forty in the morning demanding to speak with the person with the house all right we have reacted that way too when we're in a bad race dis but we're in a better way to react would be too I don't know call the police well the you know what here's the thing I'm not going to wait to get into what a better way to do things is because I think that's kind of a I think that kind of goes for both sides here I don't think the people should have been a porch at five forty in the morning demanding to speak with someone who lives there and I think that when they were asked to leave they should have left this went to me I think in the view of the jury and the jury in the county is going to look at this as a little excessive on the part of the protesters because they didn't stay on the street where they would have been we would have a first amendment right to be for as long as they wanted and peaceful protests which is typically what they do let's let's let's bring you in a moment of your yard your responsive to why it why that early in the morning why when it was still dark and white go all the way up to the house so it's not a legal rang up yourself if that were the case then people would be shooting to hold with witnesses in paper voice it's not illegal to ring a doorbell we were very polite I hope that people watch the video we were trying to catch Jackie Lacey before she left for work we know that she said seven AM meetings in Los Angeles we've been there and so to try to catch her before six AM when she leaves live feed in the valley everybody knows who I know you report often on LA traffic you know to try to catch her an hour before she would leave for work is not unreasonable also if you watch her own press conference she knew exactly who we are she said I think there are protesters outside I'm going to call the police and then she said before she could do anything her husband went downstairs and pulled a gun on it you know what I'm gonna do this for a second Steve Steve right let me just just make a point it does sort of adds on to what she was just saying you know reporters very often especially when it comes to public officials if public officials are avoiding them which happens all too often it's not unusual for reporters even at night or early in the morning to go to somebody's house I've done and you knock on your door your ring their bell because they've been avoiding you and you're trying to find out something for story you're doing so would they have a right to point a gun at a reporter for ringing their doorbell you know what that is rhetorical question that we're not dealing with here and reporters by the way our trains and reporters have no but I don't see I don't know how to answer questions which I don't want it because it's not because we're talking apples and oranges but she's put in overnight when I don't know how you hang on hang on hang on hang on she says she says she says in her defense should Steve she's saying that all we did is we weren't threatening we went up and we rang the doorbell and it's and she points out that other people church at people that are trying to get people to join their congregation all sorts of people do that reporters do that too so to your point if they're not banging on the door and they're not throwing rocks through the window even if it's early in the morning or late at night if they ring the doorbell of a public official elected official so why is that wrong this is the kind of provocative actions that the protesters were either planning or hoping for being very happy to accept no I'm not happy that someone I'm not happy that the gun was present my only point in saying this is it if this is investigated the prosecutors going to have to look if if charges are contemplated which I don't think they'll be brought on because I don't think there's sufficient evidence to bring it but if they're if they're considered by a prosecutor other than the district attorney to someone else look at this the question will have to be how will the jury react and you're gonna get a lot of reasonable people on a jury from anywhere in the county will say you know what if someone were on my porch a crowd of people on my porch the modern history if they were on my porch demanding entry or an open entrance opens door S. five forty in the morning forty minutes before the sun came up and I'm in my house and they wake me up you know I'm not saying that it's necessarily what we we can't judge a situation by anything more than we know right now but looking into it I'm confident that the prosecutor would be worried that a lot of jurors would be saying you know I would be upset I might even be there with my gun to know what I want to shoot anybody no it was nobody's plan to shoot anybody but this was a provocative action which was designed to elicit a provocative response there was a political candidates on the porch somebody was only missing this course posted on social media as soon as it was done so I think we have to look back and look at the context of what what what what certain people were there to protest and do and the bottom line is different people protesting in a place where they themselves were in violation of the law okay Malina at look did you go to the door which is just you and maybe a person or two or was it all fifteen or twenty people out the door because if it's an asset because if if there's fifteen people at the door at five in the morning maybe you could see how that would be more threatening than two or three people that are there were three people there was one of them who was in charge of selling I pressed the rain system which monitors who that the door you can clearly see that there are three people in fact there were only two people on
United We Dream Co-Founder Cristina Jiménez Discusses the Dream Act
"Did the Obama Administration failed to pass the Dream? Act THROUGH LEGISLATION. I think that this is such an important lesson even as we think about the future of this country and the election this year because it ultimately came down to two things one is this a priority for the administration. Who's in the White House into? What is the power that we really have to move this through Congress and you know Bama Ron Very pro-immigrant agenda promising? The Dream Act immigration reform. I remember knocking on doors for Obama. Biz Lavinia when you know. We were so inspired by him and when the face of came up immediately you see a shift in that even though he talked a lot about immigration and he's intention to work on it he deprioritize shoe and you know you hear things like Rahm Emanuel at the time chief staff saying Oh you know that they rail like do not even work on that right now and MS prioritize healthcare. But when that moment happens it's no longer a priority for the ministration and then when you look at Congress for one of Obama's terms you had both houses that were led by Democrats and sometimes people don't believe me at least yeah. They could have passed legislation at that point. They didn't because it wasn't a political priority. So that's one answer to your question. The other one is the for the second term. Not only that. He wasn't a priority but at that point the leverage that Democrats had had changed. Because then you had a Republican Senate and when you look at twenty ten with the vote on the Tremont the House of Representatives under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi passes the bill and then in the Senate. The bill folks shore a five votes and those votes were from Democrats. The we had had moderate Democrats voting with US quite frankly many undocumented a young people will be citizens right now including myself and my brother and many others that are part of the United we dream so what I'm trying to say here is that it is in the Senate where we have to have a real talk about. Our power and moderate Democrats are now with us on this issue. So let's talk about the success. You have had convincing the Obama Administration to issue an executive order bypassing Congress. How did you do it going against all conventional wisdom so at the moment we said especially after the lesson of the Dream Act Voting Twenty? Turn when we were like okay you know. We may not have enough power yet to pass legislation. We have powered to hold the president accountable. And that's when we made the shift in the strategy to look at the president as a key decision maker. That could give us what we want. And we decided to ask the administration to stop the deportations of young people and many people within the establishment of the Democratic Party and even the advocacy sector immigrant rights. Were saying to us. Like you're crazy. Part of the pushback was that dreamers. Were the most sympathetic group that you did. Have all of this public support and that without you as part of the equation. It became harder car to do everything else. That's definitely one of the arguments that were made. You know there were other arguments that we should not put pressure on a friend that it was not strategic. You know it's not sophisticated enough. I remember hearing many people say task. They're young people don't know what they're doing their strategies not as sophisticated to counter the argument that you raise. Well we were saying was if we are able to have one win and protect some segment our community. We are increasingly building power to continue to win for more and as an organizer. We need victories to continue to organize and bill movements. There were multiple strategies There was a legal strategy where we work with lawyers to make the argument to the White House that this was within executive authority. The White House Legal Counsel Saito's No. It's not possible. Said yes it is possible. And here's all the legal expert on immigration. Who are telling you so. And then we had the people power pressure we showed up but Obama events and where he was speaking all over the country. I actually had this conversation with the president himself. I was in a meeting with him and this was after Dhaka and I said to him. You know like Dhaka was a huge victory for our community. My brother Jonathan was protected under Dhaka and so many young people were leaving now With less fear but I remember saint him but you know the petitions are still happening so we. We need you to stop this. He got you know a bed accessory did buy me Christine. I just gave you what you want. If exactly the nice say no but we don't stop there. We need more and you know the petitions were still happening. And I was saying like Mr President. We have so many people that are still getting the ported and what he said to me is what I need to do is organized your movement and your people to bring Republicans to the table. Because if I say that I'm not GONNA do rotations. They are not gonna come to the table so I need to do your organizing to Republicans and I need to continue to drive an agenda that where I am. I am seen in felt as tough on immigration enforcement and I will never forget the because he's administration ends with no immigration reform and so it was a miscalculation also from his part and the part of the Democratic Party who believe that that could be a winning strategy. Tell me about the moment you learned that President Obama was signed the executive order. Where were you I was in? La and We were actually getting ready to lead our next phase of escalation on this campaign which included a direct action in Downtown La and right before the evening in La. I get a call from You know my friend Governor Chaco. Who was working with United? We dream at the time and Representing us in leading the advocacy working. These see and she tells me it's going to happen tomorrow.

Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.
CEO speaks out about Clearview AI's controversial facial recognition technology
"Critics say that a controversial start up poses a new and profound threat to everyone's privacy with its facial recognition technology so we spoke to the CEO and his first network TV interview Clearview A. I. co founder and co executive his name is one contact showed our era were not just how easy it is to find images of him the cutting edge software can identify people by comparing your pictures to billions of images clear view has scraped from the social media and the internet Errol Barnett is here in the studio with more on this I I C.

"Let's see you there. He he he played her. Is that from silver streak. The bathroom scene where gene wilder of course trying to pretend that he's black so that he can get by the guards at the airport. Watch the original staff. Not The remake. Man Oh come on and well accord pop thing. This is this is this is also here in the New York Times also also did a a piece about this. That Joe Biden has had a problem in the past sort of exaggerating his role. In the civil rights movement. It went from I marched to. I thought about it a lot from being at a pizza place in Ithaca going or Syracuse. Syracuse it's kind of kind of bad deal too. I advised John Lewis the exact reason. Why more supportive rid of elected black officials three former members of the chair of the black caucus black mayors? I mean come on a personal level. Why do you think that black people like you so much because they know I know them? No I care. From the time I've been sixteen years old. I came home from laws Dr King it burned out. And what does it mean to. The you know black people. It means being deliberately went and worked for three years and make sure I was the oldest guy only white guy that work these side. Because you know I wanted to understand understand I was involved in the civil rights movement but I would anyone to understand. I didn't realize for example as the only lifeguard and the project fishes nations. Yeah it's curious. He didn't March well. How many people do you think were involved volved in the civil rights movement but didn't March? Like what what what will you do. He was the only lifeguard in the projects. I think you heard what he said I'm fair is what that means like like. I don't even consider myself like involved in the antiwar movement against the Iraq war and I went went to four marches like an. Maybe I call like like I wasn't like I didn't metric. Here's the leader of. Yeah I mean that's what I mean like. I don't understand like that's the low low-hanging fruit. What was he doing? Was He sending postcards. I don't understand how what was he involved in. He stayed at the pool. Aw and made sure no. No potential marchers drowned in the pool. MLK Didn't burn it down the Dow on the weekend. What do you think he was has garnered Martin? Luther King was burning down. When did Martin Luther King burned down any burned out on the Biden Families Condo on? Why actually that's true was on a weekend trip to relax a my friend calling pop? He had some kind of beef. Look the products will burnin earn and ultimately burning down racism. Okay the the the problem ultimately is is that when Joe Biden is pressed on anything he can't handle it he can't just I mean Joe Biden knows more than anybody else I think that his politics insensibility do not are anachronistic they do not fit in this time and so when when Donald Trump says I never cut social security you wanted to cut social security and it's it's look somebody tweeted at me like what about. Oh there's quite a purity test I suppose Obama's not pure enough to because he offered to cut social security three times if people want to go back and listen to every conversation that digby and I had for three years four years five years on this program almost every single conversation sation that we had. She wasn't a regular on Fridays but I would have her on once a month and we almost the only thing we were talking about was Barack Obama's desire are to cut social security. Nobody would listen to it while saying we listen to the show. But I'm saying the broadly speaking that it is a problem. It is a real problem for Joe Biden and never mind what he would do going forward. I don't think he would try and cut social security going for maybe I. Maybe maybe with the help of Chris coon. Yeah can we do this quite square that he keeps saying the fever will break if you want a big deal at Republicans to heal America. It's going to be that but just as damaging is the idea that he's going to get nailed in the general election over it. I mean this is Biden in Iowa yesterday. I know this New Republican Party better than anybody. I've been there object of their affection for some time. Now I fully understand the way they they try and Milan my only surviving son in the way they've gone after my family my grandkids. He claims he cannot hold grudges which he says. The key to compromise in republic said look one of the things the president's residents do you have to be a fighter and competitor but president also needs to be healer. It's not about me it's about you now. Where have I heard that before but the bottom line is even if I was to well first of all? I don't know what it is. He's GonNa compromise on what's the give what's the given the get. But even if he's he's never going to get in that position because Donald Trump is going to go up there and he's going to say you tried to cut social security multiple times times and it's not because some dude who's a Bernie supporter sitting in his apartment cut up video that he could find online. It's because because everybody can find out online and doll job is going to get out there and Donald Trump knows more than anybody remember. He's he studiously avoided needed. This saying I was GONNA cut Medicare social security. And he's going to get up on stage and he's going to say you tried to cut social security uh-huh I didn't and those reports the Washington Post The New York Times and everybody who's GonNa well. Actually the reality is that's true that is true and the video is going to be up there. Joe Biden is going to get hammered on that. He's getting hammered on the Iraq war. He's a hammer on a law stuff and the idea and he's going to get hammered on Hunter Biden. And here's the point. There is is no one who is going to go from a biden supporter to a trump supporter. I don't think that's going to happen. But there's IT'S GONNA be a lot of people who are going to say. Vote for Joe Biden. which is what happened to Clinton last time the ability to smear and if you look at the criticism that has being lobbed that Joe Biden today if you look at the criticism I mean this is this is true of every kid? I'm not quite clear. Why it's not true for Bernie Sanders but criticism critique? You're hearing now. The Democratic primary is the same when you're going to hear in the general and the reason why this is a problem is because the trumps strategy is to diminish democratic participation. And the reason why he will not have the opportunity to do that as much with sanders. My theory anyways is the same reason why you don't hear any the the criticism that supposedly he's going to use the general in other words trump is going to say about about social security is going to say all the critiques are lobbed at Joe Biden now are going to be the same ones that trump uses because they're going to depress democratic votes. But what are the ones that we're told that trump is going to use in the general election. Your Socialist you're Communist. You want to give away free things. If that was an effective strategy addity to depress democratic votes we would hear Democratic we would hear democratic comp- competitors of Sanders using it now but it's not will it harden will will will will you have more Republicans coming out for trump this around than you did last. Probably he didn't get as many votes as as Romney did last time and in two thousand eighteen we saw record Republican Babacan turnout. We just saw even more record democratic turnout so the question is like which critique is going to diminish turn run out for Democrats and the Democratic primary. 'cause isn't unique from the way that that that these things work in the past in the past Democratic primary was all about like I'm going to tack to the Center. It's all about like I'm GONNA attack the Center appeal more people and Blah Blah Blah and any critiques. I get as a Democrat or not going to work in the general election because the general election I'm going to a broader base people. The elections not going to go that way this time and it didn't go that way last time the the strategy is trump gonna try and build on his numbers but he can't do that very much. The key is to mitigate to to undercut the support of the Democrat by just slinging mud because trump knows that. He's got his people. They're going to show up. Shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue. So how does he depress the Democratic turnout and that strategy of saying that you're just going to give people stuff you're gonNA give free people stuff. He knows. It's hard for him to run against that. The idea of communist Socialists are not as as they're not demons to Democrats anymore people like free stuff peeling like they know that they can't say that free stuff is bad so they say it's unrealistic. They'll say it's unrealistic and trump gonna be a tough well it's hard line. I critique for trump trump to be we gotta be soup exactly we got honestly guys we gotta look at this and hard numbers and we gotta crunch look at the A B B. I would love to do what Birdie does but I been. I been sitting in front of a computer terminal for for leaks can't do it. He's GonNa call him socialist. He's GonNa call a communist he's GonNa call him a Sandinista and the Democrats are going to grow. Sounds like a cool guy. Well but the the point is is that Bernie's not running on being sane if Bernie was running like I'm saying Dow then Crazy Bernie but if you run on has like I'm going to return to where you can have integrity with their some honor and then your opponent can say you have honor except except for you took money from Mbna except for you got your son on the board of MBNA except for your family was trading off your name now by your family was trading off your name to but guess what that nobody cares already in the gutter. Were already playing that game and I just want to say a real quick too. I think that another advantage Bernie has and it's interesting because clearly doesn't like deploying this in the same way against Democrats including really odious ones but I think he's more comfortable against Republicans. Doing this like we've made this joke a million times. But I I think it's true. That like crazy Bernie while okay. Mr Mental Health like Bernie does have a way of just like I'm not even GonNa get into it but I do know how to be kinda sarcastic. I do know how to kind of arch my eyebrows and be like really. You'RE GONNA go at me that way and the other thing too is I think as we start to think about what the center actually means more more. Broadly there's ways in which like the fact that like Bernie has a plan land for rural America is going to be perceived by like we have the right who's you know obviously is great politics and it. He's just saying like candidates candidates that come forward that have something for farming issues and things like that that there's some people I think that just perceive perceive a candidate reaching out to them by simply and being in the quote center by simply talking about their issues. What actually matters to them right and I think that part of the calculation occupation is what we're going to see it's going to be we're going to get the test of that in Iowa not just specifically ags stuff although that's obviously more relevant haven't there but what we're going to see in Iowa is if Bernie can motivate people who are who agree broadly with democratic in broad strokes principles and ideas but because of the nature of his organizing and the way that he is Centering bring people who look like these people like these town. Halls come up and tell your story that type of thing if that motivates voters. That's a separate argument though..

"Remind me to go and check out that live chatting software to well we get all these different streaming softwares me get to the show He really does interest. You genuinely does genuinely does let's let's let's turn to impeachment. Here's a donald trump will get the joe in a second. Let's do Joe. I'm sorry I couldn't got myself. This is hilarious. Joe Biden is starting to get outpaced. Why there is a there is equality equality in the race right now and maybe I'm projecting and I will I will cop to? That's possible but there is a feeling that things are starting to the pack starting to shake up a little bit and we're on that sort of rounding a corner there's a CNN poll out now that has Bernie Sanders in the leads statistically statistic Uh It's close to a tie a nationally but It's it's a big poll Bernie. Sanders has twenty seven percent percent of registered voters and Biden's a twenty four percent sent but the low you can just got to look at the trend in August in this poll. Sanders had fifteen percent and September. Seventeen in October sixteen in November seventeen in December number of he had twenty percent and now is twenty-seven Percent Biden Twenty nine percent in August twenty four percent in September thirty four and October Tober. Twenty eight November twenty six in December now down to twenty four protect genetic Joe. Warren August was at fourteen percent then and went up a little bit up and down and back down to fourteen percent. Buddha judge is still doing better than he's done before although Basically the at the same point where he was in November eleven percent and then Bloomberg is there and then you know Amy Klobuchar who's got a huge apparently bounced from the New York Times endorsement. It is up to four percent now half endorsement is so I'm excuse me fifty percent endorsement. I'm so sad. I miss the fun that you guys probably had with a a half Dourson because what we call that. We didn't even get into it too much because it's just so silly. It really is just so silly. David newspaper David Feldman said. They're both else good. He said Amy Klobuchar tells us not to dream big and that's important and Elizabeth. Warren tells us to dream big. There's nothing wrong with dreaming big just along. Along those dreams come to fruition. They exactly now. The only thing that we talked about without endorsement was just just the idea that a if you're going to endorse based upon just competency irregardless of what your political Your are your political agenda is we are very fortunate that no one was in the authoritarian fascist dictator lane. Because that would be like we chose three and the most competent for the establishment the most competent for the radical change and then the most competent for becoming an authoritarian dictator. Who just thought that these are three people? So if you're interested in one of those things vote for one of those. I thought it was so disturbing just quickly. That they when they talked about Amy Klobuchar abusing her staff. That one of the points that they made about it was that it's because it's a bad work environment. There's a danger in her not being able to retain the best talent alad. That's the downside. What are the does not an indication of maybe a problem on her part? It's just that it's going to be a challenge. Alan to keep good people there. Here's Joe Biden. He is responding to the latest polling. That shows that sanders is is gaining in the black vote and is does better than Biden in a broadly non white vote and This course has been Biden's sort of like Alamo in many respects because this is his his argument as to why he is. Most electable is because he has a strength with Non White voters which is as Democrats lose the white vote. They lose the white vote every year in the presidential elections. So you need to win big with broadly with people of Color. Here's Joe Biden though. He doesn't like getting challenged by this and he's going to show he's not some. STODGY White Guy. Why why is Senator Sanders leading you? With block. Voters under the age of thirty five. He is not leaving the black voters under the age. Just all I know is I'm leading positive. Positive trick by Joe Biden. He's like I'm repeating back in. I realize okay. You're right. I don't have his leading man to thirty five I don't know the stats but okay okay. Let me I'm about to lie but then I gotta remember like Oh yeah I'm MCI gotTa Stop Lying Not supposed to do that I I shouldn't say that I marched march to the civil rights. Didn't do that American. I'd do that again. I go back. Why is Senator Sanders leading with block motors? Under the age of thirty five years not leaving remember black voters under the age of look. Just all I know is I'm leading everybody combined with.

"The Joe Biden of yesteryear never mind his policies and why not just in the ability to actually think on his feet he would go in there and say yeah all right this is like really the opportunity for Joe Biden to walk into the House into the Senate Chamber where he spent most of his career an answer the questions of these Ding dongs. And really they are Ding dongs. Like what went on yesterday was honestly like I. It's hard to say it without being offensive to anyone particular. You know they're Ding dongs. These people are it we got. We got footage of J seek allow literally doing almost a comedy comedy routine unknowingly. I mean it was brilliant if I if I had hired Jayson allowed to do that in a in a comedic movie I would have been like. This guy deserves the Oscar but he was actually he. It was so good because he was so on it. But the point is these people are jokers and Joe Biden should be able to go in there. Enroll these guys in it would be much to the benefit of his campaign. I would imagine I can understand his hesitation about having hunter going there but hunter could. I'm just GONNA go like I have no idea what you're talking about. I have no idea what you're talking about the fifth. Sorry do the four hundred but the other irony about this is that what Chris coons is doing is exactly what. Joe Biden's pitches to the way that he is going to help America if he becomes president which is I'm going to deal with the Republicans. I'm going to give them everything. The only difference is when Joe Biden does it. It'll be to cut social security and people should also be also realized that what Chris coons is doing right now is he's setting up to make AAC himself a powerbroker. In the event that there is a Democratic president so while I think we should I would be in favor served trade. People should understand what Chris coons is doing right now. He is assembling his gang of six or four or eight or whatever it is his and he is anticipating at the very least a Democratic president. He's counting on that and possibly democratic control of the Senate and what he is doing right now is he is constructing the machine that he will use to undercut the agenda of Democrats in Twenty Twenty One and twenty twenty two twenty twenty three twenty twenty four. That's what he's doing. He's he's building a machine right now to make himself and maybe it'll be Martha mcsally. Maybe maybe it'll it'll be What's his face? No Joe Manchin perhaps settled cinema and the guy. WHO's running against Martha mcsally Marco Allie Kelly? It'll be some of those. Maybe it'll be Hickenlooper or whoever's not Hickenlooper who is running in. No he is is we just. Hopefully we'll outright primary maybe lotto whomever it's going to be they are trying to create their gang of eight. It'll be four of them and they'll find like Collins Collins will be gone maybe they won't find any partners on the Republican side which is the only upside of does but coons is desperately tried to do it. Maybe it'll be just Mitt Romney desperately trying to figure out. How can coon place coons at the fulcrum and be the kingmaker or the king slayer whenever there's any type of progressive legislation? Chris you gotta get Chris coons on. I'm bored there's a lot of barriers we were across these guys. Don't want to serve with black people and I'm disappointed that we can't serve a black people. I'm Chris coons and the so make no mistake about what he's doing here And so people should both may be. I mean I personally am looking forward to into this Bolton for Biden if it's possible to understand coons is trying to do and that's why you should take a moment and head over. I don't know a website aside Jennifer screens website. I interviewed her on ring of Fire. Quality candidate polling shows that Kuhn's could be susceptible. Aw to a challenge from progressive woman in particular. It's Jessica scarring. We'll put a link to her site right. Chris coons is planning right now. This is how they work. They see this stuff down the road. He's been working on this for about a year and a half two years. I'm going to be the new Joe Lieberman. That's what he's doing. That's what he's doing. Imagine having that your greatest ambition in life Chris coons man. You gotta gotTa think like not too small that way you can achieve it. We will get to be registered. How how much of a burn?

4 Senior White House Officials Refuse to Testify
"Today the story of the house impeachment inquiry was the story of what did not happen for senior White House officials were supposed to appear on the hill to testify they did not show up here to explain why is national political correspondent moralizing him more hi there we're what more than a month into this now some people called on to answer questions show up others do not why did those on today's roster not appear well it is a little confusing because the White House of course said very famously that they didn't want to cooperate at all right some people have honored the subpoenas other people believe they have legal grounds to be immune from testifying to Congress and their lawyers after having been directed by the White House not to testify not to honor the subpoena they've gone to court and they're asking the judicial branch to adjudicate this who wins out in this constitutional class the let the clash the legislative branch of the executive this is frustrating to Congress they think it's a stalling tactic and they've said this could result in an article of obstruction one of the articles of impeachment could be about this refusal to testify but if it's a stalling tactic it would appear to be working these people did not show up they haven't testified right but it doesn't seem to be a giant roadblock to the impeachment inquiry which is steaming ahead they're starting the house is starting to release the transcripts of the closed door testimony they say we're going to have public hearings sometime this so it sounds like it's not going to derail the impeachment proceedings coming soon listen on one of the people who was invited asked to testify today the person with probably the most prominent role in the story would be John Eisenberg from the National Security Council who is he why would his testimony have been so significant well he's the top legal counsel at the White House normally you would never hear about him he actually has a triple barreled title he is the top legal advisor to the NSC he's the assistant to the president and he's a deputy counsel to the president for national security affairs and according to former Attorney General Michael move Casey whose work with Eisenberg in the past says all of those titles show how confident the White House was in Eisenberg's judgment you don't get to be any of those unless people have a great deal of confidence in your judgment I don't know anybody who's ever been all free and another person who worked with him in the past John knew who worked with him at the office of legal counsel in the George W. bush administration says that Eisenberg has a V. a reputation for being very careful thoughtful and very private Quincy he was paranoid if people thought he was just because they see him being very careful about who is allowed to have access to what classified information so Eisenberg's job was to protect the institution of the presidency from dumb ideas otherwise he was the one other job title yeah yeah well he was he was supposed to say this is illegal or unethical or it violates domestic law or international law and he is the one that according to reports from the closed door testimony heard the complaints about the officials who were very nervous and worried about the call they felt that the president's request to the Ukrainian president to do an investigation of the vines was inappropriate this is how the system is supposed to work they took their complaints to the White House counsel he took some notes then he decided to book the rough transcript of the call into a special highly classified computer system where few people would get to see which and the question is why was he trying to cover something up was there some very good reason to do this that we don't fully understand yet from what we know right well that is the big question Democrats say it's a cover up but according to a lot of former and Essie age that I've talked to say that at least in the short term it might have been a good idea he put it there while he tried to figure out the legalities of the situation he didn't wanted to leak in the meantime but this is what the Democrats want to talk to him about and of course it's unclear if they ever will get to know I was gonna ask are they ever going to get to speak to him well I think the court will have to rule that the subpoenas can be enforced before we hear from John Eisenberg is NPR national political correspondent Marc alliance in the White House thank you Mara

Boris Johnson and Trump: Whose day was worse?
"Welcome to the program everyone. I'm Christiane Amanpour in New York where world leaders speaking at the United Nations General Assembly President Donald Trump's speech was heavily focused focused on his domestic reelection agenda lashing out at what he called a permanent political class he railed against China and Iran too and later though he seem to relax at a meeting with his closest European soulmate the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson but both face major crises at home controversies as the call into question their commitment to the rule of law and democracy itself here in the United States the latest scandal to engulf the president his phone call to the Ukrainian leader and request to investigate his political opponent the former vice president Joe Biden and he is now facing renewed calls for impeachment here's what the president had had to say as he arrived at the UN. It's a witch hunt. I'm leading in the polls. They have no idea how they stopped me the only way they can try through impeachment humint. This has never happened to President before. There's never been a thing like this before. It's nonsense and when you see the call when you see the readout of the call which I assume whom you'll see at some point you'll understand. That call was perfect. It couldn't have been nicer and even the Ukrainian government put out a statement. That was perfect call. There was no pressure. Put on them whatsoever. So of course we are waiting for a transcript that call but as for Boris Johnson before he took to the podium the Supreme Court at home home issued a momentous decision that is controversial five weeks suspension of parliament was in fact unlawful and it's another in a string of severe blows that he suffered since becoming prime minister and vowing to push brexit through do or died. Yes obviously this is a voted that oh we will respect and we respect the judicial process so I have to say I strongly disagree with what the justices found I didn't think that right but we will go ahead and Paul comeback and parliament is coming back tomorrow so democracy. Chrissy and rule of law are in focus on both sides of the pond today with me now to discuss share our oh he's the former French ambassador to the United States and also to the United Nations and Jane Harman. She's president and CEO the Wilson Center and she also served nine terms as a member of Congress. Well let us get to the heart of the matter I started by saying both these issues that we've highlighted do in fact speak directly to the commitment of our leaders to the rule of Lauren democracy. Let me ask you first because the president of the United States is in the crosshairs right now well they both fit it was interesting to hear Boris Johnson and just say that he will respect the decision. I think the alternative is to go to jail in Britain. It's very clear what the role of that court is. and I think that means that he may lose his majority because what will happen unless he can pull a no brexit deal together which he doesn't seem to be able to do you may have to extend the deadline is that Farrage Farraj brexit tears will bail from the Conservative Party and I I don't know where the future leadership of what about the president of the United States. I mean here now. There's increased pressure on Nancy Pelosi who stood back from this idea of getting in meshed in an impeachment but this huge amount of pressure on her now right here is ah of course the rule of law should prevail here. I think it's important to see what the whistle blower wrote and I think it will either leak or be given to Congress soon and then we'll we'll have more information. I think a partisan impeachment is a very sad result of this. Should it come to that. I saw the movie in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight against Bill Clinton. what happens is the president gets stronger. This will feed his sense of grievance. You just showed a a piece where he said that hat and and it will keep us divided instead if we wait and get more information and there is a bipartisan way forward. I think that will be much healthier for the country and for the rule Jira aerobic. I WanNa ask you also about well. Let me ask you I actually about the UK Parliament and the You you K- Supreme Court that has determined that it was unlawful and unconstitutional. What Boris Johnson did I know you're looking at it also in a lens of Brexit. How what do you make of the rule of law aspect of it? I think it would be embarrassing. Ears debt for a lot of citizens especially you know the people walk close to the the populist wave that we are facing it could appear as a new attempt by the establishment to block brexit and so I do think whatever my personal feelings towards Brexit of course I would prefer the UK to remain in European Union. I think that the UK has to leave you. You you know fifty. Two percent of the of the British voted for it you know in France we add a referendum in two hundred five here about the EU Constitution Institution fifty five percent of the French said no and eventually it went through the parliament and today the populist are still saying you stole the vote of the French so I I really again. We have to respect the rule of law but we have also to understand that there is a sort of tension between what the citizens want expressed express their anger and decision of the judge really interested to hear you both you on the on the on the Donald trump situation that an impeachment might in fact strengthen him and you're Democrat so I'm saying it in that regard and actually produce a backlash and you're saying that even the Supreme Court ruling might produce a backlash. That's interesting. I mean Boston well. I think there is an alternative. I I think Nancy Pelosi suggested last week that the the procedure of the office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department that prevents sitting President President from being indicted might be overturned by legislation and if courts consider. Let's come back to court whether Donald Trump pass committed crimes. I think that would be better than a partisan impeachment. What worries me about this is that there will be democratic. Support in the Senate a Dick Durbin has just come out in favor of impeachment and there is growing a consensus in the Democratic Caucus in the house so I think she probably has to move well. I'm a hearing actually that CNN sources are confirming that Speaker Pelosi is going to start an announce the process towards impeachment the formal the process which everyone knows is is basically the beginning of impeachment but what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight was not pretty the better movies to the Democratic Ready President Bill Clinton and Republican stampede to impeach him. several counts were adopted in the house but in the Senate he was not convicted it and what happened was he got stronger and the driving force got weaker. the better movie was in the early seventies when I was a young council in the Senate the Nixon impeachment which was bipartisan bill call in then a freshman in the house later a Republican senator and then Secretary of defense had the courage to join the Democrats crats and the whole inquiry was much more low key in serious and after that the Democratic Senate leaders are the Senate leaders Republican Senate leaders came to Richard Nixon and said you will be convicted and he resigned and that was an orderly process based on whatever were were the facts at the time so I'm hoping that if it comes to this and impeachment is very sad thing to happen but if it comes to this and there certainly are a lot of allegations out there that it will be bipartisan and it we'll be done in a manner that gets the respect of not just our country but the world I mean so far. There is no indication at all that they'll be bipartisanship because the Republican Party has become the trump party in terms of all intensive for people who are leaving running against trying to run against the three of them Gerardo. I would like to play you a couple of soundbites because I want to ask you about the credibility of some of the reasons that president trump is giving for having tried to talk to the Ukrainian president. I'm I going to play the one that that he said earlier the conference talking about a congratulatory they treat message to the Ukrainian president. It's just play that conversation I had was is largely. Congratulatory was largely corruption. All of the corruption fixing play was largely the fact that we don't want our people like the vice. President Biden is done creating big corrupt already in the Ukraine
"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.

Do not have to participate in any field sobriety test physically or the Breathalyzer they will arrest you. They will take you into custody for that. But not giving them any evidence. When the case comes to court. The only thing that you have to do the police ask you to do if they ask you to get out of the car you have to do that. Correct. Definitely definitely is they will Yankee out with tasers or her whatever they need to to get you out of the car. And if you get pulled over and the officer says have you been drinking said, well, your mother didn't think so that's not. Yeah. Humor.

"And let me throw this question back to kneel because this is also we started to hit on it. Just now a lack of legal counsel office again is has left. He's not in there yet his replacement has not actually started yet. How important is it for a president to be surrounded by people? By legal experts lawyers his council who can talk to him about what is appropriate. What is not or perhaps stop him for making such an over political play? There's nothing more important because look every president wants to come in and do stuff, and you know, sometimes it makes a lot of sense sometimes it doesn't and sometimes they're legal problems. And the most important thing, you do is hire good lawyers had tell you the truth. Not just what you wanna hear. And you know, the president is has done this time, and again, not just in terms of talk, but actually acting executing on things that are fundamentally if they're core unamerican, and it all stems from really I think a cynical view of what law is about what the supreme court is. It's just a tool to help him and his policy objectives. And ultimately the project here is to get rid of law. I mean, the idea that you can use an executive order to repeal the constitution. I mean, come on. Meal were talking about this a couple of moments ago, given the language in the tone of the president's campaign over just the past few days, and the temperature of the crowds that he speaks to and that he raises the temperature speak not just to the danger of the law that this latest proposal is but to the danger of the country rich diverse country. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, we've seen the president do this before after Charlottesville with his both sides remarks and the Muslim ban, and so many other things, and you know, I think this whole project, which I really George Conway yesterday is about just saying one simple thing, which is you know, we are first and foremost Americans, we are, you know, we're bound by constitution, which is she's just as Marshall said intended to injure endure for ages to come and provide comfort and guidance to people of all parties, and you know, the constitution is bipartisan document, and that's transcend these kinds of incidents moments. And I think we should look to our founders values and not to this, you know, really horrible horrible way of appealing to the worst parts of our society. Neal Katyal thank you very much, and.

"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.

"Attorney's offices and special counsel that the justice department cannot indict a sitting president if that's their position i don't happen to agree with it by the way but it doesn't matter what i think on that score it matters what they have said now has the justice department changed its position has it issued new guidance no it has not which makes so much of this perplexing doesn't it it makes so much of this perplexing they take a counterintelligence investigation they turn it into a criminal investigation without any criminal statutory basis we keep hearing the president is not a target so he should feel good he's not a subject but a subject he is and he could be subject to move quickly to a target and i'm the only one that keeps stepping up and say hey wait a minute the position of the united states justice department remains said you candidate data sitting president and how does the justice department get around that if they haven't issued new guidance or new constitutional opinion from the office of legal counsel as the office of legal counsel been asked issuing new opinion no it hasn't not to my knowledge so we we exist in this non reality which has become a reality that is created by these different forces the media democrats in congress some republicans in congress leakers at the fbi leakers at the department of justice when the fundamental question is if a president of the united states sitting president of the united states cannot be indicted then how can you ever be a target of a criminal investigation mr komi knows this try they keep throwing around the phrase obstruction of justice because even if mr comey doesn't pull the trigger and try and constitutionalize that which the department of justice has said is not constitutional he knows he's laying the impeachment track that's why has anybody explain this to you that these memoranda exists these two memorandum exist we dug this up what mr producer i dug it up what six months ago or so something like that while ago and tried to make this point i made it on radio and made it on tv i made it on fox i made it everywhere i could maybe i'll bring it up again on hannity tonight and so the question is if a president of the united states cannot be indicted if that is the existing position at the department of justice.
