Mulvaney brashly admits quid pro quo over Ukraine aid as key details emerge... and then denies doing so
"On tonight major developments on many fronts in the impeachment inquiry we begin tonight with the one that eclipses them all and could fundamentally changed the course of this entire affair today one of the president's top advisers openly admitted what he the president and all the president's people have been denying for weeks now now he's trying to back wave from what he said what he said in great detail several times and not by accident right now acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is furiously backpedalling from at all which only underscores the gravity of what he said today presumably with the president's approval he told the public told lawmakers pursuing impeachment told the world that yes the straighten withheld military aid from an ally under Russian attack to get that country to take action to help the president politically Mick Mulvaney admitted was a quid pro quo with Ukraine he didn't use those words quid pro quo but what he describes was just that and then he said this suggesting that we're all just a little naive for somehow being surprised equating what happened with the normal diplomatic give and take between countries which this is not it appears to be for personal game after all if this were normal it's hard to see what the White House has been trying fruitlessly now to stop all the participants in the scheme from testifying thing about it too congress another key player by the way ambassador Gordon Sunland went before lawmakers today but even as he was talking so it was Mick Mulvaney now here's the first moment from Malvinas press conference so the demand for an investigation into the Democrats was part of the reason that he was on the to with funding to you look back to what happened in two thousand sixteen certainly was was part of the things that he was worried about in corruption with that nation then that is absolutely on two thousand sixteen refers to that conspiracy theory the president's latch onto which blames Ukraine and the Democrats Not Russia for interference in the last presidential election now what Mulvaney just spilled out there is the exchange of something for something or the now familiar Ladan equivalent clear you just described is a quid pro quo it is funding will not flow unless the investigation into the democratic server happened as we do we do that all the time with Foreign Policy Oh okay well there was the president's acting chief-of-staff speaking for the president talking about the very first thing that president brought up on that July twenty fifth phone call with Ukrainian President Zelinski immediately after Lewinsky asked about the military aid we needed that was being held up Mick Mulvaney agreeing that what transpired on that call what he rudy Giuliani vice-president pence Mike pompeo and a cast of recently indicted accused felons were involved with for months was the very thing in the very words that the president others said it was not you take a look at the it caller was perfect I didn't do there was no quid pro quo just turned into a full blown threat a full-blown quid pro and I just don't see it this phone call all is a nothing burger in terms of a quid pro quo there was never any quid pro quo there's no quid pro quo would pro quo quid pro quo no quid pro hello there is no pro wealth or no pro quo today Mick Mulvaney admitted well yeah there was again didn't use those words a situation he described which he said get over it is a quid pro quo any tried to suggest that there was nothing wrong with it admitting it nothing wrong with emitting it because it just happens all the time and keeping them honest it's hard to see anything but bs because tonight as we said he is now furiously backpedalling away from what he said earlier recognition that speaking what appears to be the truth is terrible for this president so having made those disastrous remark he is now trying to say what he said he released a statement reading in part let me be clear there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid in any investigation into the two thousand sixteen election the latest word from it any in hopes perhaps of erasing the previous latest word which will play again for you now you just described is a quid pro it is this funding will not flow in less investigation into the democratic server happened as well we do we do that all the time with foreign policy and again he said we should get over it and perhaps he already has there's more breaking news on all of this including from the Wall Street Journal reporting that the president agreed on the need for Mister Mulvaney to walk back his comments yeah you think and personally approved his chiefs statement the paper citing a White House official more now from C. N. N.'s Jim asta who joins us from the White House I can only imagine what the response was when Mick Mulvaney finished that press conference and went back to whatever room he went to have gone well for him what's the reaction been inside the White House to all of this Anderson I mean I think Mick Mulvaney has gone from quid pro Oh to quit pro bono essentially what's happening tonight but basically you know when the president's legal team is putting out statements saying that they will we're not involved in Mick Mulvaney as briefing in the White House briefing room I mean that is pretty clear that they were not on board with this I'm told by sources familiar with these discussions go on inside the president's legal team that they were essentially blindsided and did not feel that what Mick Mulvaney had say help their cause very much having that all of that I just spoke with a White House official in the last several minutes who said that the president was involved somewhat in the statement that was put out by the White House the president according to this official felt that the media were intentionally misinterpreting what Mick Mulvaney said but of course Anderson that is more clean up on sixteen hundred As we as you just pointed out just a few moments ago not only was Mick Mulvaney saying there was a quid pro quo he almost seemed proud of it right Dan was a he sounded a pro. You know professorial during this briefing teaching all of us you know school kids this is how things work in the big leagues we do this all the time and then of course he had come out later on and released that statement one interesting thing to note if you go through that statement line by line Anderson the one that was issued by the acting chief of staff Z. evening it featured some of the same talking points that the president has been using over the last several weeks and saying that there was no quid pro quo that this was about rooting out corruption and so on sounds like they had to go back and rework that statement well I don't understand how Mulvaney could also in that same press conference stand there and say that the dirt on the Biden's that had nothing to do that that was not part of the quid pro quo even though we've all now seen the rough transcript in which that is item number two after the conspiracy theory about the server being in the Ukraine that's right and and keep in mind the president and his defenders for weeks I've been saying that there was no quid pro quo but in the rough call transcript the president admits he says in that rough call transcript that he wanted to get dirt on Joe Biden that he wanted to get dirt on Joe Biden's family what do we know by just looking at federal election law in this country it is a violation of law to seek foreign help in an election so the president is always is always trying to spin things obviously but clearly there is a violation of the law baked into that rough call transcript the thing that they were clinging to over these last couple of weeks anderson was that there was no quid pro quo and I think there's just no way around it the acting chief of staff blew that up today inside that briefing Krizner was on camera with George Stephanopoulos while saying Oh yeah it would be no probably if a foreign country had information I would totally take it and and you know who knows what he would get four well yes right he has spoken in this fashion time and again appreciate things just a few moments before suddenly reversed himself in the White House damage control when I spoke with the House Majority Leader Democrat Steny Hoyer leader Hoyer how damaging were Mick mulvaney remarks for the president in this impeachment inquiry will essentially really what I understand I didn't hear Mulvaney say but what I understand he says yes there was a quid pro quo and a in effect daring people to get over it because that's foreign policy now it's not what the Congress the United States appropriated money for an ally a war with and losing losing people a- and what the president decided to do is withhold that money which Mulvaney says was quid pro quo he doesn't say that Break Wilco but of good pro quo of for them doing something that he wanted done and then the conversation he said look by the way I need a favor favor was it to look into a political opponent not in two thousand sixteen but in twenty twenty And so I think it cannot help the case and will be part of the testimony and evidence that the committees are gathering Mulvaney is claiming that the president pursuing this conspiracy theory which flies facing the intelligence community says was Russian involvement in the DNC hack Levinas claiming that that was that was a concern about corruption in Ukraine just logically that also doesn't make sense I mean there's plenty of actual Ukrainian corruption but the president didn't raise any that all he talks about was this conspiracy theory about crowd strike and the Biden's it's there for everybody to read the conversation the president told the speaker of the house he the conversation was perfect which is why I presume he released it because he thought it was fine it wasn't fun it clearly was a quid pro quo it did I need to be stated this is the quit and that's the pro clearly the president of Ukraine knew what was going on clearly he knew that the president was saying I need his favor and by the way I've got your money and also I know that you want to visit the White House and obviously the contingency between the two was was really clear and I think mulvaney comments as I said shortly went out helpful to the president's

"And I think it's because and back, you know, it's funny where where do you put this story in context? And I think the context I didn't get to it. Because it's not really the story was about is. You know, we don't know because his organization is so, you know, someone just functional that is I don't think Devon Booker is the problem, but one of the problems with being this way and being just abject is. You can't even really nervous and figure out where this guy is because he he system the state of dysfunction in that contact that particular this. Well, but but it's just like, I think it's really good. He's clearly got the thing. He's he's competitive as hell. Yeah. The defense. We'll figure it out. But I also think that to the extent that we can't figure it out yet. It's a manifestation of just a, but isn't, you know, rolling in the right direction as an organization, and then he sort of you start hearing his comments and clear that like, you know, he's being virtually affected by this by the stench. And I'm where am I seven book? I really good. I I have no idea if he's gonna help you win basketball games because I think frankly, things have gotten bad enough in Phoenix that I don't think there's anything any one player. No matter how dynamic or talented can really do to change that right now, you know, until the organization sort of, you know, find that cell figures out its vision finds it's it's kind of leadership structure, and and what it means. And then I think we'll have a better idea of how does having book or functioning organization that has a plan. I'm bullish on Devon book the cop out. No, I'm bullish on them Booker. I didn't mean winning and Phoenix I just meant is he a winning player. Period. Or is he an empty calories player is he closer to what we can see of Zach Levinas being or is or is he closer to what we conceive of Klay. Thompson is being you know, obviously, he's miles away from Klay Thompson. I like that continue. Yeah. That's sort of your shooting guard. Do they help you win continuum? And I'm not saying I'm giving up on Zach LeVine is a winning player. Not if he gets to the rim for a huge percentage of shot attempts as he did this season..

"Access journalism, Kramer, been Grischuk been Kramer had access, of course, to people like George H W Bush, and Michael Dukakis and Gary Hart Beck in nineteen eighty eight. And wrote a great book about them. Therefore plot argued may access journalism is not so bad. After all Libby Watson wrote a big reposted over at splinter. I thought we should have a little chat about access journalism because this this is something I think that has been kind of a continuous theme. Esp? Especially over the Trump years, you know, in the Maggie Haberman. Jonathan swan Levinas e reporting on Trump for putting on the White House kinda thing. I the my first point here is I'm not really sure how useful a term access journalism is, you know, when we when we get into this as a general term, right is this would this just means interviewing your subject, essentially like talking to people. Yeah. It's sorta like long form, you know. It's like it just feels like there's you know on the one hand access journalism. Could mean, you're, you know, most credulous shittiest celebrity profile on the other hand could beat Stephen Rodrick reading about Johnny Depp. Right. Yeah. So it's sorta like it's weird to argue about a term that could mean almost anything both the fitting it and then ripping it. Yeah. I think that's I think that's that's the right way to look at it. I mean, I think in it's it's useful. To to look at to read journalism with the skeptical. I. And to question into always question, you know, what potential trade offs? There may have been never assumed that, you know, if don't, but you know, I think that at its at its worst when people talk about access journalism. Yeah. I mean there. I mean, we see I feel like more frequently in the sports world where you know, you get a you get a big profile with a major athlete, and there's a clear, you know, there's a clear there's the terms are set in advance. Right. There's some sort of implicit tradeoff, and there's a difference between that and, you know, having a good text message relationship with a with someone with a, you know, well seated in the White House, there's always gonna be people that I mean, everybody has sources right means to just having a source doesn't make doesn't doesn't mean that you're doing journalism the wrong way. Someone just having someone on your on speed. Dial doesn't mean you're doing journalism the wrong way. But brown. But that would not. But if you're, but if you're making concessions, if you're making concessions that are I mean if ever if every every interview is based on some is based on some implicit concession then. Yeah, it's a problem. Yeah. I mean, it's like I think when I read Watson sing like the the kind of access journalism. She's talking about is Chitty access journalism. Right. That's why starting with us defense of the turn of of this kind of nebulous term. You know, the plot did in the Atlantic is just so weird to me because I don't I don't know what that means. And you're kind of defending everything I mean, first of all it's a little weird right about this about what it takes which is a fantastic book rain that Kramer, was you know, had all this time, right? In fact, published four years after that election was over, you know, in in he's, you know, those portraits, I think were probably mostly liked by the participants. But they were big big thorny warts and all portrait's that showed those guys and how they you know, made decisions and how they came to be. All that kind of stuff and written in this kind of really interesting style and everything so it just it's just weird to say like, Richard Ben Kramer wrote a good book and interviewed the presidential candidates. Therefore, anybody, you know, therefore, this may be a good thing after all..

"Like something that Caleb, and I talk a lot about too is just consent. And what that means end the evolving definition like at the end of the day. A lot of what we're talking about in the media now is consent as yes. Like, make sure she said, yes, make sure you get the ass before you have sex and in not world consent is still thing to check off your checklist. So that you can get to sucks. It's not something that you actually care about. It's not something not like other than still protection you really haven't interested in. And I think what you're talking about is the next step in the ocean. It's where we really need to be which is consent. That cares about the other person's experience in the sex. You're having makes him an active participant, not just something that like contributes, your pleasure. I'm even thought about it in those terms. Yeah. I'm glad you said that because. Yeah. In in that scenario, where it's like, okay. I got the yes, we're all good to go. I mean, that's there's no. There's no connection there. There's no real communication happening right entity. Yeah. Right. It's not there's no. So you're right. It's far more subtle and complex not complex but scary to be in touch to be in contact to be in connection with that. And then with that, you know, I'm sure there's not data on this. But if there could be data on if you really connected with and I'm back in my life to when I was young. I didn't fucking on do that. I wasn't doing that. No. I was young dummy. And but kids are not dummies. Right. They get this every you know, it's a I'm getting fired up about this. It's so fucking stupid that the men the most important part of human existence in some people's measurement in my measurement. That would just dopes were just complete dopes about it. This this recording is really got. I'm I'm I'm so fired up about what you guys are doing. So good. Well, let's do this. Let's do a round of takeaways. Let's each do a quick takeaway. An or sort of final thoughts here. What what do you want? And I'll put this out there too. I often sort of prompt the question if you could download one understanding or experienced into the minds and hearts of all of our listeners. What would you want them just to get? What would you want them to get? I'll go first, I guess, I. I think the one thing for me is like it's pretty simple, actually, it's like we're team. And that's something that will be an ice say to each other a lot especially since building this as a thing. But also just romance Bush that we are team together. First and foremost, and I think when you approach. Sex. If you approach anything you're doing as a couple with that mindset of like, we're doing this together. It creates a lot of of safety in compassion and just authenticity. And. It allows you to your to a deeper level. Awesome. And I am going to have like such as were point Caleb. But I'll say it a little bit differently. So the way you have sex with your partner or whoever you're having sex with is in analogy for higher training every other relationship in your life. And you get to choose who you wanna be who you're going to be in that relationship and just because you think you have chosen doesn't mean you're not already showing up in a way. And so I think it's so important to the intentional about who. You are the doesn't just impact you it has impact on so many of the things in your life. Beautiful. So my my sorted. Takeaway is that I think again, I said this. But I think he is really onto something I feel like the the simplicity and the practice. The the fact that this is an ongoing practice is really important. I could see similar journals the journals also wear like my wife, and I on our parenting. All right. You know, maybe it's like a once a week thing. You know, we parent continuously. So we're not gonna stop every fucking twenty seconds. Do this. He ever meet every two weeks..

"So we've been book we want to create a space for a couple to communicate with each other and get out of their heads about what they think sex should be an how they should sound or how they should be performing unrelated like get to know each other as real humans in real people in a really experienced in real time. And then from there, we're hoping that the reception will be good people will really get a lot from it and be willing to share some stories about what they were able to break through in what area to discover. So we can start to have more. Conversation about real people in real sex readily available. So we're not just learning from learning about sex from like abstinence or winning about sex from Warren that there's like humanity in it. My gosh, isn't it isn't the the the state of sex education. Just like more than most in insane. That it is the way it is. And so on us if you if you could attach like a PDF to your your podcast stands like the description. I would love if you could put it'd be so cool. There's this PDF in from the Netherlands was it. It's like for thirteen year olds in. It's like a teen magazine is probably twenty pages long full color. I bid it has everything from consent to s CDs to how to put on a condom to like how to have sex like it's like everything and geared towards teenagers. Our? Yup. But not less since then. Yeah. It's really straightforward as the Dutch are comparing that pamphlet to the pamphlet that were heading out in America about like don't wear short skirts. Or don't have sex religion as TD die. It's slightly different end. Not only. I mean, think about meeting girls, right? You have like fourteen year old girls across the country. Watching listen you've got a coach who's like a primary character saying don't have sex. You'll die and people are internalizing that like we learn from popular culture oak end the crazy thing about this. The crazy thing about this isn't just hard different the sex education is it's also had different the outcomes are in public health in women's empowerment in gender equality, like they're real specific differences in our comes of all kinds between what's happening in the us in what's happening in the Netherlands, and a lot of it traces back to how we communicate about sex in. How we teach it. I love it cannot give you so I'm going to want to share this in the the like the business person meetings. I probably shouldn't. But I never follow up with it. So I just wanna shoot. So my entrepreneurial idea in the world of sex in communications. And it's that someone creates I would actually love to be part of it for anybody wants to do this. We create a certification system. So that when you go on your online dating system, you can have a stamp that says, I have completed the consent course, and there's a stamp that says, I know how to touch another person or whatever right or I've been to an every man course of action, and I am in touch with my emotions, and it'd be a fucking standard or how people date and find each other just because it fucking needs to. And that's a way that we can. I mean, I could see like what how why would that not be amazing right to go on match. I don't even know when I was it was match dot com. I don't even know what fuck it is that but to be like, all right. And and it's like vetted. It's like all right. This dude is probably fucking safe for me to go on a date with you know, I think that would be awesome. Sounds like an idea sound like we should get in touch with bumble. Right. Yeah. Do it. Yeah. I think that's a really wonderful idea.

"Girl or a guy and a guy or grow and grow or what whoever whatever the couples it's using this journal they could be starting from the place of hey, we just had sex in. It felt amazing like that is the practice and like the end of the day. This is about building communication together as a team and just knowing where you're at in. It's a. A spark of a bigger convert. Right. I just remembered where I was going where I intended to go with that. Last thing, I think this is important because a lot of that culture narrative for men as I understand it through experiencing it myself and seeing it other men is that with sex. This is just one area in life another area in life. Where men think they're supposed to just fucking good already? They're supposed to have their shit together supposed to know how to do it. They're supposed to just like, you know, it not need any help not need any feedback. Right. And that's an and I think that carries through you can see that carry through in other parts of life too. And so I my assumption when I hear that women's feedback as like, oh, this is fucking great. Let's do this and men are, you know, I don't know if my man will do it to me. It's it it is somewhat an ego thing. It's right Canham is a man willing and courageous enough to step up and hear the truth. What's actually happening and be able to step away from the the sort of? Solid cystic power narrative that we have which is like I'm fucking on the men, right? You know, like I got this with come on. Come on. Who's got this? Totally if you had a journal, you'd know if you've got. Around LA a few weeks ago with a couple of friends and one of our mutual friends guy was helping us who's filming us sitting next to each other talking just like developing our narrative on camera this like, so we kind of have the practices like I love what you're doing to help you out and directed at me. He was kind of like I've interested to see how you pitch this two guys. And what he offered was something. Like, look, I know that you think you have it. I know that you are amazing it sex. I get it or not or what? But the opposites to two guys think the suck totally right where he went with that was if you were to ask your girlfriend or your partner or your whoever your partner is what they thought. What would they say? And I think that's kind of the in from there. If you did ask that would if that response could actually help lead you to have a lead you to having better sex. And I think that that is ultimately what Levin and I wanted with the journal was to continue having better sex manned by communicating about it until you could sell it the guys listen, she'll do you wanna have good sex? Do you legitimately wanna like this on and grow in that? This is a way you can do it which you know, a guy can just take a deep breath and get over himself for a sec. Totally. Yeah. I mean at the end of the day heart of what drives this project beyond like, I mean, Dan on this starting a business is hard. It's not like a walk in the park. Just because we did this journal between the two of us doesn't mean everything it takes to write a book self published. Shea get it out there is like some thing. Thing that comes easily to us. We're really driven to take that on because calebs really passionate about our like making rents for men in the world. And I really passionate about making a difference for women and something we talked about all the time is how sex like in our conversations with people in our research in talking the sex therapist sex in America is something that is empower everyone the way that we relate to it all down, and we can't lift up men in. We can't lift women. If we're not looking at this in changing the narrative, and.

"It's more just like this is this is about communication that is at the core in a couple of the people I've talked to you. They like, they don't do homework necessarily. But they're like this would be a great thing after they come and see me in my office for them to take home and actually try in embody what the jocking about together in a therapy session. So yeah, I think we both feel really strongly about this. As a as a tool to help people out. Youthful. What are any other any other? I don't know. Either yours are other people that you've shared this with any other big takeaways learnings or learning moments. I mean, I'm my vision of what it would be just this process. Like, this this sort of like ongoing, you know, sort of beautiful awareness of something. That's so important at actually just to say that I don't think we say that enough is so fucking important, right? Like like in. I, you know, it's one of the things in working with, you know, thousands of men now that get saved until the end, and then it gets brought up and and there's an we we are. I'm looking for more ways. Even just a first of all serve our community. But then serve, you know, the wider culture in world in ways to I dunno open up that conversation, and I have personal work to do there myself to it's still for me to talk about, you know, explicit desires and feedback is still one of the harder areas of life for me. So I think that. I just think that you know, we need. I'm looking for ways for every man to be a space where we can we can talk more about sex and get it out there and stop Tampa down. And and I think this is such a, you know, positive tool not direction yet, I'm curious especially as a man talking to you the founder of every man co-founder every man like how this plays into like a man's world versus women's world. And that's something that located. I talked a lot about with couples like friends of ours. It's it's wild to shear the feedback from a friend. If there will in verse from a man, and I think that really yeah. I mean. There. We've had a number of women be like, oh this like I'm so into this. And but like, I don't know if my partner would be I don't know if my boyfriend would be. Yeah. But I mean, that's that's but that's like the standardized cultural model right now. Right like greater Newman Women. are. Are you know, let's just put quotes around that. This isn't true everywhere. Of course. But you know, the standard narrative is that men are unwilling to go into the touchy feely talkie place. Right. Women are and I mean, it's interesting because the world I live in the world. I live literally like the bubble. I exist in like fucker these guys. All the guys that I'm interacting with are so ready, and and yet I do want to say that from my experience with men is that you know, and I kinda of set this up from the beginning. I think there's a couple things that guys are scared to own emotions are motion -ality, potentially our spirituality and our sexuality, right? Kind of like the big hot Buchan like a night out that and what was I going with that those in my train of thought. Where was I going with? Well, I think I think what. I think I know where you're going with it. Basically what I was getting from that where I was going to pick up was. Wasn't saying that there's no right or wrong starting place. I think that yet for a lot of men they might not be at the point of like radio super motionlessly in. Ma in like talk about like, oh my God. Like emotionally that just like that sex made me sad that made me what? But but I think like we. So we're just modeling modeling where we're starting from we serve from a different place because. Yeah, I mean like hiding Dan like you. I also have I would consider myself a little more. I can't saying this but quote woke and like, I think that. Won't even allow the unit I to be on the same page, but like look at the day of it's a guy and a.

"You know, what we both were both humans. We, but we love each other. That's like we're we're coming into the space of sex from love. Right. So like, whatever is going on in their whatever, we whatever's happening in our sex life. We want it to be replaced with love. So if if we can make that better, and we could become more connected inside of that. Like, why not you know, I've done I can speak from my own personal experience. How I wish that I could go back to the early stages of my relationship with my wife and an have this in place from day one because there were some things that happened real upfront early in in our relating together that that caused some harm and and didn't get fully. It was like it was like they had some weird half-life. It took for a long time for these things to fully get. Uncovered fully shared, and they're all out in the open now like and have been for a while. But yeah, I just I mean, it's almost prevention tool in some ways a prevention from miscommunication from being hurt from holding onto hurt. I think it's. Yeah. It's fantastic. Totally end is speak. You're saying, Dan, I think a lot of people have experiences or learn about sex in a way that leaves them holding some hurt, and I think especially in this country where we don't talk about sex for not tied to talk about sex. We'll talk about sex in movies in like kind of like in passing with her friends or over brunch. But really communication about sex. Doesn't happen very frequently between partners, and when dots culture, it's really difficult to bring that her to the table, a really can sometimes feel like you're about to bubble over or your app, Wayne of like meltdown before whatever it is. That's all need comes up, and those things whatever they are could not be solved by keeping them bottle that they have to come out to. To become something that we can deal with in a relationship. And so something that we think is really wonderful about keeping the journal on keeping it regularly is it's almost like going to the gym or flaw saying or like practicing yoga, it's just an opportunity to check in constantly and have a conversation about what's going on and take care of each other and take your yourselves. That's always says better out the men that. The comes up a lot that we I think Levin abroad up early on our relationship was it's a practice non performance and to keep that in mind has really been a soup. It's kind like than the guiding mantra of this whole project. You would also like about this so much is that it what it does. Is it creates a safe container within the relationship where like what I see is you to doing this journal? I mean, sure you could go out, and you can you know, a couple could get therapy or a couple can, you know, learn and read books, get advice and go to experts and all that stuff. But but what I see what I think is is so simple and even elegant about the so one of the other things that recently, I've been talking when I talked about every man people articulate in the context me metoo and dating and sex in the world is that I feel like what every man's role in part is. Is is to give man experience and practice. So that they can even come to the table and have a con have the hard conversations that need to be had. I think that's sort of square. One step one like men in in our community are are showing up to get very real and go to the scary places and be able to you know, like you said Kayla with the first time you share..

"I think I've always been the type of person to open up. Any relationship for like the possibility of like mutual sharing mutual like leading in in any thing that we're developing and I think the just. Kind of took. That permission men. It's funny. A lot of times I will entailing stories of people like, oh, yeah. We'll Vena ask me out. She was the first one to initiate, the let's be exclusive conversation, she initiated the I love you conversation. She this shaved be. Let's move in together power station and point like, it's. It's it's kinda finds me doesn't even like, I don't know. I've told some guy friends about other like, geez. Like, you have any power. And I'm like, yeah. I actually do like I helped create the space for community feel safe to do those things and. I was right there with her every seven away when she wanted the exclusive. I was a fuck. Yes. When she said, I love you. I said I love you right back. So there was no. Disjointed there. I. Opened up. I feel like I opened up a space for her to come into it. And what I'm hearing that you guys created was a safety was a level of safety to have the hard conversations all along the way, which I think is is a huge missing step in many, many, many many many interactions between men and women, right? It's how that that bubble of trust and safety around any of those interactions. You know, the they go south. They can go south, right? Yeah. Absolutely. It was definitely all about safety. I think great from beginning. You guys are a really poignant example of of, you know, maybe a way to come together that's mutually honoring. And and safe in good though. I love hearing this. All right. So so, yeah, you at what point did you? So you started talking about sex from the very beginning of. Yeah. Tell me more like like, would you was he honestly, you sent me the the journal and one of my first sort of gut reactions was like, okay. So when are you like are you doing are you like having sex and then immediately going to your corners like that moment where you journal? So I'm so in Iovision, and I didn't actually envision this in any less. And I'm like is that what you guys did you'd have sex. And you look at you. And you'd be like the how was that for you conversation? Is that kind of what this came out of? Yeah. But it was playful. I mean, it was like, yes. That's how it came out on. It was like, you know, I actually don't remember if we would be like how was that for you literally? But we were we're like kind of like a what the fuck was that and sharing like, did you feel that I felt that in one of the things that we've used the term that came up really early on was we describe it as cosmic sex where like what is this cosmic sex? And like, do you feel my soul right now? Or we like this you nurse like, and we you do I mean. Yeah. That's what stopped as I mean. Like, we were kind of at also there is this feeling like is exactly end spiritually. Like, I touched Caleb soul. And he like had gone all of me. Translates really cool. Yeah. Totally is transcended. Blow total like metal meditate like meditative and. Add neither of us have practiced that before like, that's not. So those definitely new. That's amazing. All right. So you're like holy shit. What the fuck? What was that? Oh, yeah. We gotta figure this out. We got we had doing this. I remember a conversation where I like, I love telling the story, I think it will be in this gonna blush, but. The we both work from home. We both are entrepreneurs, and we have a lot of flexibility in our day. And I think there is a day where we just like middle of the day like one or two pm like we gotta tell you break we need to we need to have sex like it has to happen. And I'm pretty sure it was like that time afterwards. One of us was like man, like how do we just have sex all the time in have a business, and it was like. This more. You know, you're you are that makes sense..

"We just felt that draw emotionally. So that was definitely part of it in that carried into our sex life. So I four most like we had that going for us. I also think. I also think we had spent a lot of time while we've spent time dating other people. We'd both a lot of time getting ourselves for awhile and getting to know ourselves better. Physically emotionally, and I can save for myself in Lavina. I think you would agree. But, you know, tell me if you don't bring that to the table with her I felt way more confident when we're alive way more just like ready to to drop in in this space Lavina created again right off the bat from like asking me out and showing that like that courage bar really allowed me to really open up in express myself. So it felt like very shared. Emotional space that we are willing to create together. So you felt more able and ready to express yourself and sexually. Well as emotionally and say, yeah. Okay. Great. Yeah. How about you living wanna? I don't wanna push to. I think in the very beginning. Yeah. No, no, like, we're open book. So you'll grit ask any question you want? Even from like, our very first aid Caleb. But I had just amazing indication with each other. And we'd both on a lot work. Like, he said to tap in unlike finder self expression in we're sharing that really work on sharing in a way that brought out all the love that we want to create with her friends and our families in the people in our lives in. So even on a first date we spent like four to five hours sitting in the corner of a restaurant talking to each other about similize like deep intimate and emotional stuff that like in the past we'd found really hard to share maybe had never shared. And so even from the very beginning. I knew that something Kayla was really different. And something about the way that we shared with each other is really different and something that I noticed right away in our sex life was for. I we didn't have sex for while. I mean is like maybe a month. So in modern age, that's like a sense three by like, you know, it wasn't rid off the bye. And I iced. I still remember when Caleb and I started like having more physical engine see she let me lead which was something that I wasn't really used to. So in a world where like sex is something that you just get to as fast as possible, and you have it. And then you're done. King was really invested in me being emotionally out of place where I wanted to physically share experience with him at it wasn't just like getting up plant like when we started having sex like every thing that we did had that sort of tone to it of our we present are we having a great time. Does this feel good? Are we both like focused a relic shaky about other things or we actually here with each other? It was a lot of that verbal. I mean, this is a very important note to hit and sustained for a little while in the in the culture and climate that we're in right now. I mean, we're, you know, the there's just a follow Amy Schumer on Instagram, and he put a post up today, basically saying that well, it was a comment on the reaction the reaction. Some men are having to me. Two and the current, you know, climate, which is men having a reaction to saying well shit. I can't even talk. I can't even say Hello to a woman anymore. And and she's just basically saying how ridiculous that wasn't demeaning and not helpful in. I agree completely. And so what I'm hearing. You guys say is that you are able to, cultivate, immediately and sustainably a very very clear and deep, and I don't know way to communicate with each other. Right. And so I love here in Vienna. You say that Caleb let you lead, and we don't have to go all the way into this. Because this isn't the main topic, but it's worth touching on here. Is that was that a natural? Was that natural for you Caleb. Did you think about that? Hedge was this is just something that happened between you in. I wouldn't say it's it's not unnatural. But..

"About the men's from our friends Alex in Dan who like week after week would share how much they were learning. How much they were targeting into themselves in through that areas. Like, wow, that is really the kind of partner. I wanna have that's the kind of person I wanna be with this person that like really is in touch with their emotions, and then also like creating this community that they're going to support unless they're gonna have to support themselves. So in fear, like creating community has meeting all these new people through in this house. My like my roommates, and I just decided to throw a party on Super Bowl Sunday where we cook in have a friend DJ and archbishop owners get heard you do this thing called heartbeat movement or drum and we'd people in a meditation. Would you be into sharing out with everyone who's coming and he got back, and you said yes, and a sore was so clearly the day that the party was happening. I was so sick. I could barely move. Ours was to cook dinner for like forty people while raiding party was happening in my apartment, and I was like, I don't know how we're gonna do this. I feel horrible and ought to do is be in bed and Caleb coms like all smiley, just like full positive energy and starts off by sitting everyone down in a massive circle. Asking them to close their eyes leads one us. Powerful meditations ever been a part of it was like, so wonderful. And so hard opening like literally knocked the sickness outta me. But as ruins like meditating, everyone has their eyes closed an eye peaking the whole time. The only person that's got their eyes open because I like making dinner had to check the thin. But also secretly wishing in came about. Just the cutest thing. And. Yeah, like what I got to see that day was so special. It was this person who was just so open end like willing to share this amazing thing with all the people around him end like in that moment, I just developed this huge crush on Caleb. Like every time I saw him for the next couple of weeks. I couldn't like be in the room that totally reading running away. That's that's. That's a fantastic. That's that's beautiful. I love to hear that. All right. So let's let's introduce this just sort of like open the door to the the bigger deeper topic that we're going on and that being communication as a couple communication about sex. Specifically in this journal, this very very cool journal that you sent and I got to take a look at and I definitely have some questions about it. I definitely, but when I'm even more interested in honestly is how this came about. And you guys so this you guys have been dating since this year. Correct. So how long have you been together seventy in months like this week beautiful? I think I think it's it's courageous and a pretty amazing for you guys to collaborate on a project that that requires such intimacy in his asking for intimacy between other people for themselves. I think it's very cool. So who had this idea which has come from? Well, so to be honest, there, courage and vulnerability were like the scenes of our relationship from from day one and just like even in Lavina after which he was just talking about that nervousness. She sent me a voice memo, actually, Dan you and I were coaching at the moment we got off a call on Friday morning. I was feeling all lit up, and she had sent me a voice on right after that saying, hey, I saw you last night. I was super around you have a huge crush on. You will you go on a date with me? I want you to know you better. And I was like remember that. Yeah. That that's the first that's the day that we Mark as the relationship. And so so that set the stage, I think for just like totally believable in open communication, and we everything that we did every conversation. We had we were operating from that place and sexually. It was no different. We were like being really vulnerable really open and noticing. A different kind of sex than either of us had ever experienced. And I think honestly like what it came down to both sting. Entrepreneurs Lavina is even more of a data lover than I am..

It was you and David Ashkenazi and. Is frigging ace that was those amazing. So we'll add so going with is funny. You bring that up we Levin, and I were talking before this like should we give a lot of context relationship little context and not to dive too deep in the story here, but that retreat if it wasn't for that retreat in the work, they came after that, we wouldn't be talking to you right now, obviously because I would know you, Dan.

What do you mean? You've laid down to each other like actually right next to each other. It was very it was like in this. It was some random little concert and the first night Kumasi Washington was playing and for whatever reason no one was there. It was a crowd of a hundred people in this tiny festival for pretty big name and Lavina, and I both remember being in this tiny room and consciously sitting on the floor because we had all this space. And right in the middle of the stage. Right in the middle right before this inference end. We never we didn't figure that out until we moved into gather. An I had like a towel that had a stamp of constant name in it in Hilo was like ours there too. Oh, that's not. So we worked at all out. Yeah.

"You had known his name, but from her description, it must have been officer buddy Miller from the Woodbine police department who was the first one there at the scene that night at some point. Police came. He said, I can't go in until I hit reinforcements by that time. My husband and my son had gotten the 'cause Mogae I dunno. She told him told whole neighbor. That we all bid them the and. My husband said to believable, you wait for the reinforcements. 'cause my wife is in there and I'm going. And that I walked out, I think. I met him at the door, whatever. I came out the side door. Yeah, yeah. Came out side of, we go. Officer Miller was just trying to secure the scene by himself. He would not approach the church until more offices arrived as backup. But when Levinas husband few others community at arrived at the church to find out what was going on, they just got on a head of the church. That's one of the husband had found her. He'd gotten her into the car and they just driven away. Before second officer arrived in the senior living already save at home. Still even the most people involved in the case, did know about her Miami was living was not the first time she would ask Swain curious. She had been talked to police officer. She's pretty sure at least once before. And she's fairly certain that has happened in nineteen eighty five, not long at all. After the murders happened, man came as said, they me miss gone and which then defied him. And he just, he just asked me who I, you know, I find that I was who I was and that I lived here that I did belong to the church. He said it's like he had a paper with questions and he was checking it off. Okay, that's that's all I needed to know. And he, he went away. There's no way. No. Now who's obser- wise are what happened to his record up talking to her, but my best guess that simply never made its way into the candidate shares office file. And the very first days after the swans were martyred, they were at least five to be I working on the case plus just about every law enforcement officer and every law enforcement agency and all of Camden County. They all got involved in some way or another. And with all the people were going to case has gone missing.

It was just it, was amazing and to his dinner companion who I think is a state secret, I'm not supposed to mention her she was delightful to but it was running, a little late tonight to get into coast to coast.

Coast to coast he has a, new book coming out in the fall so he'll be back on later on with his new book, probably not on with me either but I asked him to come back on and talk. About his book from a couple. Years ago rat line because everybody so crazy about this hunting Hitler show that's on the history channel and I've. Watched a few, episodes it's very history channel and they create little? Mysteries that they try to solve. By the end. Of the show but. You know Peter Levinas research on this is much more chilling and. I think much more cogent and, so for those of you who've been following hunting Hitler on history channel I think you need to, join me tonight in revisiting rat line that'll be next hour and we'll we'll we'll talk, about how did Hitler get out. Of Germany and where he ended up which is a slightly different thesis than in the history channel show but. I think better, documented Easily more understood and and terrifying. If Peter Lavina is right It just it'll it'll shake you to your core on who you think you can believe about a. Story like this and we'll do that coming up next hour it does challenge some of the facts that they've presented on hunting Hitler. To, which would make that show perhaps more interesting to watch and and then we'll also see if he can give, us a little preview about his next big book coming up but it's the kind of stuff that will give you nightmares if that won't Then wait till you hear what's jumping on you in about three minutes when we go, to crypto news next on coast to coast AM this is he and pundit.
