Attorney General Merrick Garland Shows His True Colors
"Merrick Garland was supposed to be on the United States Supreme Court. Remember when justice Antonin Scalia passed away. The great Antonin Scalia. Then president Barack Hussein Obama proposed that we need to have kind of a healing and kind of coming together period, and we're going to have a moderate come on the U.S. Supreme Court. We're going to have Merrick Garland as he's not far to the left. He's not far to the right. He's kind of going to be like Anthony Kennedy. Now to his great credit, senator Mitch McConnell said no, that's not going to happen. We're going to wait to the election. We're going to see what happens. The election occurred, and Merrick Garland remained in limbo. And never got his appointment to the United States Supreme Court. Merrick Garland always kind of had the appearance. He always kind of had the disguise, the camouflage, the uniform of being a very moderate individual both in his temperament and also his politics. Merrick Garland always kind of had a way of saying, I don't want to bring the country too far in one direction, but my duty is to the rule of law. Now Merrick Garland has showed his true colors the last 6 or 7 months ever since becoming attorney general of the United States. He is without a doubt, one of the most radical, craven, one of the most dangerous attorney generals in American history, I will even say, in some ways Merrick Garland is doing things that Eric holder and Loretta lynch did not even do when they were attorney general of the United
Michael Eric Dyson Explains Why 'Economic Recovery Should Be Targeted Toward Have Nots'
"Talk about wealth and income inequality disproportionately affecting people of color and should the economic recovery measures be targeted therefore to these people and if so, how can that be the tough one? Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

"I'm pat there, said Loretta Lynch is my guest, Loretta Lynch. She is an attorney. She has litigated against these utilities in the past, and right now she's a former president, The California Public Utilities Commission right now she's a guest with us. She's taking your phone calls and answering our questions about what the hell happened this weekend. What happened? Why did this happen? And Loretta? I'm going to tell you. I got an email from somebody who just kind of summed it up. From my perspective. This is from Randy in San Jose. And just so you know, Randy and I often have disagreements about various issues. Luckily, he still listens to the program. But he sends me this. We can't keep the power on. When it's hot. We can't keep the power on when it's windy in the fall From a power perspective, California is almost 1/3 world country and dammit, It's true it feels like that, Loretta. Absolutely. It feels like we're a banana republic where the sons of Enron are coming back at us because we've let them OK, So we were talking that I'm going to get your phone calls, so don't go anywhere But let me just ask the red of this. We were talking about Theis of independent where they the independent something operator operator because they're going to operate the system. Okay, um, who controls them? Who do they answer to the answer? Ultimately, to the governor, They're all appointed by the governor. Three of them have been appointed by the governor, two of them that were appointed by Jerry Brown, but their nonprofit corporation that the Public benefits corporation and that's important because they have a heightened duty to the people of the state of California to get also benefits from being a public benefit corporation. And that means the attorney general. Can come in and investigate them. And I think we all should call for a Neji investigation about what the heck happened. And why the I s o allowed the grid to go down. Not once. Not twice And here we go the third time today. Did you see the proclamation that Governor Newsome issued that he signed today? Yes. Okay. What does this do for us lets us use generators. It lets us use dirty power just to keep the lights on. And very sadly, That's the first thing that Gray Davis did. 20 years ago, when when Enron was jerking California's chain, he released all the dirty power plants from their running limits. So that the light could stay on. The problem is if the fellers are manipulating our market and withholding power until the price goes high enough, you can't buy your way or run dirty power your way out of that manipulation. You have to find the manipulation rooted out and stop it. You mentioned earlier. I wrote it down. You said the I s, though, was involved in market games. What does that mean? That means I also allows a bunch of different markets toe happen at the same time where people bid or fellers bid in their power. And then the utilities say, Hey, this is how much load we think we're gonna have, and they match Demand and supply and in a market that runs well, supplies matched with demand. The problem is, the sellers have been withholding their supply kind of in, weirdly I sanctioned ways. And so today, the also issued an emergency proclamation shutting down one of their markets. It has been gained and that more than anything told me that the eyes Oh knows their markets have been gamed and they're going to start to stop it. The problem is, they're not stopping it fast enough, and they're not using all the tools. They have to stop it like using the reserve power we already bought already. You talked earlier today earlier just a few minutes ago about an attorney general's investigation, But here's a little bit of what Governor Gavin Newsom said today. And I kind of what your comments about what his investigation would look like. And what Do you think that's good enough? We failed to predict and plan these shortages and that's simply unacceptable on the governor. I'm ultimately accountable and will ultimately take responsibility have taken. I assure your responsibility to immediately address this issue on move forward to make sure this simply never happens again. Here in the state of California. What do you think, Loretta? I'm glad that the governor's taking responsibility because his eyes so sure isn't where I would say is, yeah. Somebody needs to investigate the also not just how this happened, But why aren't they using all the power available, So who's going to be doing the investigations? Will they issue subpoenas so that people have to comply and give the data and make sure it's correct and not just half measures And will the government commit to making sure that everything That he learns will be made public. Who would you like to see? Do the investigation. You know, it could be a lot of different people. It shouldn't be anybody who's currently associated with I s O, because if they're the problem, they shouldn't be investigating themselves. But then I also shouldn't be anybody who's paid by the energy companies What they call the market participants because you want somebody get financially independent from all those interests. So that they can actually very clear. Clear headed. Lee SE. This is the problem. This is how you stop it. Let's go back to our phones. Already 80 88 Tennis. The telephone number 808 oo a 10 Lissy, Let's go, Teo. I think it's Maryland, Maryland from Los Altos, Maryland. Hi. Welcome to KGO High. Thank you. This is very timely. Our electricity and gas went out for a clock in the morning on Saturday. Do you want to Well, we can't use the gas while the gas Yeah, but in order to use my stoves, it has an electrical ignition. Harder, right? Right. So we have no gas, No electric, no WiFi, no TV, no air conditioning. It's been 100. Like as you know, we know that was four. In the morning. I Saturday. We called Sunday evening at about seven o'clock at night, And they said they still had not sent anyone. Lt. Uh, assess the problem on now, So I just threw out all my food from my freezer because everything has Go on, Dad, Of course. The the last time they did a Ah, they shut off the electricity. They killed my double other It was demolished. Um, and now I'm concerned when the search comes back on, and I going out trouble with my appliance again. Yeah, and and and everything that you've already lost and you read it. You know, we had somebody else who they turned the power off and then they were off for a very long time. And they're sending somebody out. And you mentioned something like a transponder that may have Responded in a negative way to to the situation. I mean, is it Are you taking a risk when you shut everybody off like this? That when you go to t turn everything back on that Something's going to go awry and you are going to cause somebody not to be able to get their power back on that something's gonna break. Absolutely pat. That's why blackouts should be. The last response is not the first response. Every absolute thing that can be done should be done, including using all reserves before you black customers out because it's just complicated to bring them back online, But it would say to Maryland it's odd that you were blacked out for in the morning. Because the also did not call blackout until the evening. So that tells me that something else is wrong that it's a physical equipment problem and not in lack of power problem, And that's true. Then you need to complain, File a complaint. With P. Jeannie and the PUC because if it's p Ginny's equipment we're back in P Jeannie's negligence, you know, Operation land. Yeah, and and you know, why haven't they responded? Why haven't they sent somebody out to check it out at this point in time, and she mentioned that she can't use her stove because it has the electronica. Ignition, but can't turn it on anyway, and just light it with a match. Well, you can light my stove with the match. I don't know what kind of really because if you really can't, but I've got one of the bottom of the line stove at a match works perfectly well, so you might try that. But I don't want to give you bad advice. I don't want you to blow yourself up 80 88 10 is the telephone number 808 oo, But that's enough. I mean, if the gas gets turned on that, then you have to have somebody come out from the utility company to turn everything back on and light, your pilot and all that kind of nonsense. If you don't have an electronic ignition. I mean, it's it's just a nightmare is what it is. All right, Let's go back to the phones. Loretta, let's go to a David in San Francisco David, Hi. Welcome to kgs. Rama's Loretta Lynch Go ahead. Why are you panting? Oh, she's Loretta's been basically describing the scenario of how Enron pulled their scam of 20 years ago. They intentionally sold their spare parts. So any time there was, ah, a power outage or any kind of a problem at one of the power plants they had to. They couldn't just go to their warehouse and pull out a part. They had intentionally sold them so that they had to wait a week for that part to arrive. There was a 40 ton cream that crashed at the, uh, I think it was Santa no free, and that's why one of the power spikes had happened in in 20 years ago..

"There's Jen. Loretta Lynch is my guest. You know what? I'm gonna grab one call Loretta while we have just a couple of minutes in this short segment that we dio and that is Irene. Irene is calling from San Jose. Irene. Hi. Welcome to kgo. You're on with Loretta. Go ahead. Hi, Loretta. You just said a moment ago about if you have one of those excuses from PG and me that you will be worked Iran and I actually do have one of those excuses because I have a CPAP machine and I was unable to go ahead and have electricity is down 21 hours and since we've lost power for P m yesterday, I'm I was concerned about sleeping last night, and so I don't know what the future holds. So any suggestion and why is it so long? If it's a rolling blackout, Joy supposed to be 1 to 2 hours? Why're there some people who are simply stuck for such a long period of time? Loretta I don't know. We've tried contacting me, Jeannie and 10 o'clock this morning. They said they had a crew working on it. Yeah, Liars told them about the that that's the message. I got two. We sent crews out to assess the problem. And it was the rolling blackout thing it did. They need a crew. They knew what was going on. When it was my home. They're just liars, Loretta. So, Irene. I don't know your situation. You do have to be listed as a medical needs customer with the utility for them to work with You. Okay, so I could be that when they do the blackout. Some other thing goes wrong. Some transformer blows or something else. I don't know your situation, but but generally And as you know, I am so not a spokesman for PG and E. But generally they do on these planned outages, get people up and up and going again within two or three hours. And perhaps not the one so I think what must have happened in both your situations is some other piece of equipment failed when they turned you off, and they're having trouble turning you back on. And I am just sorry to hear it because this was so unnecessary. This is about the incompetence that both of you were blacked out. All right. Hang on, Loretta. It's time for us to take another break. We'll come back with Loretta Lynch. She was the president of the California Public Utilities Commission. She knows from whence she speaks, and she'll be back..

"I had person We're speaking with Loretta Lynch. Loretta Lynch, of course, is the former president of the California Public Utilities Commission. And, you know, she advocates for us. She advocates for you and me, the rate payer, the consumer, the Californian. Who's always saddled with the responsibility for PG and E's malfeasance. Whether it's people whose family members have died, whether they've suffered horrific losses in wildfires, or whether we suffer the fate of ratepayers who have to pick up all of their crap and pay for it, Loretta, I've got so much I want to talk with you about, but I do have callers. And I'm hoping that you will take a couple of these calls. I want to get to this company and Hayward and I also want you to give us hope as you are always want to do. So how about it? So we had some calls in here. You're already here we go. We're going to start with Craig in San Francisco. Craig. Hi. Welcome to kgo creating a your great remember when he was a fun time like they should hard this lady full time anyway. You mentioned there groaning. I say power to the people with the dent in Italy. Mothering interests in Mother Nature. We wash out the foundation would rain and then the wind will come down and blow the structures down. And now you know the danger. I think the company should be taken over and their people the public and weak, But you know, Mother Nature has a lot to do with it. I know construction foundations. I did it for over 30 years. I have a lot of spirit. The rain will wash out the foundation and blow down. So we got to give the Gentilly to other nature to she could be mean. Are you saying are you saying Craig that you don't think that peach any holes liability? I'm no, absolutely I would think about 70%. Mother. Nature's right there too. She wing Sometimes they got karma before karma in took people to the whole You're incurring. Okay? Tell you what, Let's do we have limited time. So let's let Loretta respond. Loretta. All the all utilities in the country know that weather plays a factor and mother Nature plays a factor. That's why they have safety requirements. The problem is P Jeannie didn't perform. The safety checks they needed to, and they didn't fix their system that was aging and old and failing, And that's the problem, And that's why they are a convicted felon twice now. Are they doing the repairs now? Some, but not enough. Judge also has made it clear they are not doing enough. He has been saying, Why do you have thousands of treats trees in your tree turning back log? You shouldn't have one tree left in your tree trimming back log, he says. You're very good at making excuses, but you're not good at complain with State law and the PC recently hired a consultant to review the PC And the consultants. Report, called a roadmap concluded that the peace these safety division is not focused on compliance and their oversight of the utilities have been insufficient to ensure safety. Will anything be done about that? Well, so now this road map report is in front of you. You see, the PC is going to need to make wholesale changes and how it oversees the utilities instead of bit by bit incremental changes are they required to do that? Because of the report? They're required to do that because state law but the PC hasn't been complying with Dave. Okay. All right. Let's get another call here. This is David, who's calling Also from San Francisco. David. Hi. Welcome to kgo. You're almost Loretta. Go ahead. Glad I followed that last color, the structure of how we the people would get management of the cutting back of the tree limbs and in the infrastructure of P Jeannie Eyes is paramount in this And if the courts have acknowledged that if I understand, right, for example, up in paradise, uh, the cause of that fire was led to Ah high tension wire system that was sold. That it was supposed to have been repaired years ago, if not decades ago. And if I understand, right, the the M O of the criminality of P genie is they claim that they do the repair work, and they pocket the money. And then when disaster happens, they well, in this case, they've declared bankruptcy twice. So Obviously the taxpayer is being badly served. I think that people paradise we're Ah, They've only been repaid What 10% of damages and the idea that that we can have a corporate entity they can lie about doing the maintenance. And then failed to actually do the maintenance pocket the money and then Ah, leave whole sections of the state in disaster and then make us pay for it. Right, so they it sounds like Rico is the first thing that we need to do with it on DH. Maybe get the national guard out or I think that this is the description A few years ago, very spread men of the big RD and used to talk about how all of the employees of of PG and E could be snapped up by a municipal ized version of Ah, PG and so that the state would actually run the billing system state would run the tree maintenance and the purchasing of new equipment and no employees would need to change. They would They would all be hired up as a new entity. So I'm wondering. Ah, was that discussed it all in the bankruptcy settlements, and also is it negated by this new law that Governor Newsome just signed? Loretta, What about it? Well, David and Bruce are right..

"Me laugh I wish you were here in front of the Loretta Lynch thanks for being with us today thanks the last two years I know where you know that when that when you are here with me I do sing it to you I sing it out loud listen before we have our conversation I just need to quickly do a correction about in the last hour information that came out over the air that apparently was incorrect I am receiving tons of email messages and text messages who are saying that the caller who said that you have to send in a copy of your license in order to vote absentee is wrong that there is a rule that applies only for first time voters and it applies to in person or mail in ballots I'm getting the same message from a whole lot of people many of them who have voted absentee so just want to make that correction now Loretta Lynch she's my go to galleries talk about any issues concerning P. Jeannie and in the time that we've been going to this pandemic they're in all sorts of things have been happening Loretta and it scares me that it's under the radar the people aren't paying attention because they've been paying attention to covert nineteen instead now we're hearing that the bankruptcy the P. Jeannie bankruptcy is nearing its completion what can you tell us about where we are yeah P. genies in a busy bee well we've all been sheltering at home making sure that they've lined up all their backroom deal to get everything they want more three big things were to happen today the first is the public utilities commission approved P. genies bankruptcy bailout deal of course online they gave everybody the company everything it wanted but who's going to pay we are all of us the problem is they put a lot as opposed to restrictions and make them change out their board to have new oversight committees that all adds up to the same old same old it's moving deck chairs around on the Titanic but no real much less fundamental change is going to happen at that company except the rates are gonna go up that's the first big problem that happened today second one was judged off that he's a judge in the Northern District of California federal judge and he is overseeing P. genies criminal probation Christine Bruno negligent that they were convicted of killing of eight people and destroying so many homes well this judge is doing the right thing he has extended the probation conditions to the electric side and he's ordering P. Jeannie to actually make their sister safe thought P. genies response they asked the judge to reconsider that order because Hey you see has it all in hand yes even showed up at the hearing today virtually today don't worry we've got it covered the judge responded did he challenge them on that did you say I don't care what you the color this is my court and also I'll decide thank goodness that's exactly what he said P. Jeannie answers appear to be who you know agree with anything P. Ginny wanted the judge ordered the PC to file a brief in two weeks explaining just how they have it all covered and telling him why he should not act to make sure that P. E. G. makes it to some safe let's keep tabs on that because you know it can be very interesting to see what the key is he says in federal court under oath about what they're doing what they're not doing you know the thing about judge Alsup in and what he wants to do is he has been involved since San Bruno he has been involved he's heard all of it he has seen his gaze get her testimony he's had much documentation he knows about that you know how horrific the disaster is the killing of people and so you know he's a guy I think really kind understands how this corporation operates so you know I've got a lot I hopefully it I hope that my faith in him is not going to be misplaced I have a lot of faith in judge Alsup because one he suffers no fools and to his priority as he has said in his public rulings is can make sure that not one more California and died because of teaching is negligent it's an important priority in an important focus and one that the PC has never said that they have but then the third issue that happened supposed it was going to happen today was senator Jerry hill had a bill SB three fifty and the utilities and energy committee this morning and that bill was going to create what they're calling a back up plan to make a private company out of P. Jeannie S. P. Jeannie misbehaves again not a public company for my person but very interestingly senator hill called that bill from consideration this morning so wasn't heard in committee my understanding is that governor Newsom is supportive of this bill what happened I believe it was governor uses backup plan that would that would entail yeah my perspective is it was very important not to hear that bill today because there are very serious problems with that bill and what it requires the legislature to do basically it would lock in P. genie is a private company and prevent the state from taking over P. Jeannie and making it either a customer owned company like mayor Sam Liccardo within a day once you do for a state owned power company which then Weiner has adult to do it also reduce reduce the oversight and transparency that the AG provides the Attorney General to have lots of corner cutting that wasn't good for California the right now it's on hold let's hope it stays on hold and if not then I hope you'll bring me back so that your listeners can here will be in more detail while it's a bad deal so is he is you know so he pulls this thing from consideration it does that mean that they're going to rework the deal that they're gonna look at some of these flaws and potentially correct them don't know don't know what's going on I don't know why they don't include you I am usually included in all of these decisions you should be made to god over PG&E thank you don't need that done a good job but what I do know is it's too early to tell what we should do with P. genie has again let's focus on their current misbehavior and not lock in future choices because as we know with whole coveting you don't know what the future's going to bring so let's take it day by day and today we need to make sure the judge also keep control over the safety of PG&E because frankly the PC has abdicated control over that and to let's hope said and some group appealed with the PC has done because the QC has blocked this state into extraordinarily high rate increases they're good that are going to be required from this very cushy bankruptcy deals and and how are the people who were actually victimized by P. Jeannie and again I emphasize the word people how are they going to make out under this bankruptcy deal well P. Jeannie made a settlement with a majority of the victims lawyers and that settlement is for a total of thirteen point five billion dollars to be paid to all the victims in a trust where you have to kind of prove up your claim and then the the trustees determine how much you get much like the nine eleven trust right there was a new pot of money set aside and people came in and made their claim but just like the nine eleven trust and frankly that BP horizon deal which also had a trust those trucks ran dry because not enough money was set aside to pay all the claims and that's my biggest concern with the victim's settlement which is thirteen point five billion dollars we don't know if that's enough money to pay all the victims and if it is we do and if it isn't it's not a question that is unanswered and what's really important here on that thirteen point five billion is a billion of it is already set aside to pay the trustee and all the administrative costs so that knocks them out of money available down billion dollars intelligence can I apply for that job what one of the victims they're only setting aside six and a half billion in cash the rest of it come through at half he'll stock and so the question is will the stock could be worse what P. G. does it might be worth but is not promising to make it work you know what the red I find that so offensive that you've been victimized by this company and their answer is to give you a piece of the company that you hate now because they've you know maybe kill a family member and you don't really want anything to do with them if you don't have to have anything to do with them just you know give me some kind of compensation for how you harm to me I don't want to own a piece of P. Jeannie if I'm in that position well and why should the victim the the only group to get stock when no other class of creditors has to accept the stock of compensation insurance companies and the bondholders and stockholders all get cash from the lawyers and the financiers in the underwriters all get cash the victims don't and I think I surmise that is because teaching you want to keep those victims on the hook and then the cost soared for future rate increases well the pay the victims you got a raise their rates to pay the victims they could have paid the victims first he chose to pay the victims last to keep them on the hook which really from my perspective as a Sam it sounds like there's an awful lot of rate increases in our future what's it gonna look like for the ratepayers that's what is particularly pernicious and what the PC did today he is he basically locked in customers and all those struggling small businesses as well as you know families broken individual rate increases you get every penny not sure because all of a sudden I I'd say one of the worst components of the deal is they did not talk about they've changed the standard really of what constitutes an acceptable rate and every other state including California until today has required rates to be just and reasonable before the repairs have to pay them well this deal just says Hey we want to raise to be net neutral on average whatever that standard is because there's no legal foundation to that standard so they're doing the standard because they know that the rates are coming down the pike are not going to be just and reasonable so now they're just not gonna use that standard anymore that really was a huge signal to me the here come the rate increases and it's not just another lead P. Ginny has already filed with the securities and exchange commission thing that they anticipate a five percent rate increase each year each for the next seven years and that's only for a component of what they want totals because that cumulated kilometers fifty percent rate increase in the next seven years and that doesn't even cover all the debt financing that they are anticipating under the spell so what one of the things that still up in bankruptcy court is how much data they taken on here and how much of that debt gonna cost over time and is this company really gonna be credit worthy gin and the mountains of debt they're taking on so that they can pay Wall Street and not the victims so the judge also I mean I I know that he's not he's not the overseer of all things P. Jeannie but it does he have any input into what just happened today at the CPUC I mean it can it can that be who would who would appeal that who would say this is crazy who would be able to advocate for us and in that regard well the groups that were at the PC will have the right called standing to appeal it to the California state court judge also could consider it in terms of will there be enough money left to ensure safety I'm on P. Ginny's started hoarding cash last year after the last round of wildfires and each when they chose bankruptcy they were sitting on a mountain of twelve billion dollars in cash and then after the show thank Ricky they got another six billion dollars in what's called debtor in possession financing or loan so now they are sitting on a mountain that eighteen billion dollars in money that they could use so they should have used that money to fix their system instead they're going to use that money to pay the bondholders and pay the insurance companies and just dribble a little bit six billion dollars to the victim okay the bond holders is this the same thing as shareholders you know combine holders are different they hold the bonds and the shareholders hold the stock and so the bondholders want to make sure that they get paid and they were originally fighting the shareholders in court until they made a deal they realize Hey instead of fighting between the bondholders and shareholders essentially the two sides of the street of Wall Street they could join together and stick it to the right pair which is what they're doing and the victims the rate payers and ended at the end of it and and and you ask well what about the victims and the problem here is the bankruptcy judge judgment Holly would not allow any other alternative bankruptcy plan can be formally considered okay that is what I wanted to do that because they do this paper reports I have it written right here all the newspaper reports say that there was no other plans submitted so there was only one that could be considered and that was in the bankruptcy court and then that's also with the C. P. U. C. they only had one to take into consideration is so that was the one they were going to prove that's when they were going to go with that's not true that is true they could have considered other plan you chose not to build those judgments Holly and appears to be intentionally and affirmatively put blinders on mount Holly said no we're going to keep it exclusive the debtor meaning P. genies right to promote their plan meaning for all practical purposes nobody else gets to even give me a plan to look at I'm only going to look at each of these plans is that typically the bankruptcy.

That's I'm telling you that, so it's gonna that's gonna be next. They're, they're going to do this. You get ready for it. I'll go through the list of audio for second, but just want to give you a quick a quick note. Tamara show right now, five o'clock, you do not want to miss it. There's a big story that I've been working on, and I'll tell you where it deals with the sodo counting an olive branch. I've spoken with the mayor down there. Invite him on the show. He's not going to because he's not gonna come in on pending litigation. That decision that says, right? He could comment if you wanted to, but I don't think he wants to I understand why, and you understand what tomorrow at five o'clock I have tried to talk to every alderman down there. I have not had luck with George Collins, who's the large position, I've left him a couple of voicemails, if you know, please tell them I'm trying to talk to him, and it can be off the record, but I want him to know what I know and not, you know, have and get their take off the air. Same forgo Erhard, if you know Gill who's ward won olive branch. I loved talk to you left. A message on the fifteenth. Pat, Hamilton you got no voice mail. So I went through the city. They said they you the message, call me she has not called I did speak with joy Henderson. I appreciate her time. It was worth three. David Wallace book ten the longest he was very receptive ward four, but I'm waiting for both into call me back with information. Neither of them have called me back yet. To kind of let me know after I gave them a lot of info, John Aldridge doesn't have a voicemail. I still don't know how you can be as alderman, or councilman Gannon Commissioner d is not have voicemail set up for the number listed on your website. I love to speak with you, John, I don't know you personally, but I sure you would want to know what I know and finally, del Dickerson, ward, sick six less left him a voicemail it on. Sorry on five fifteen have not heard back from him. So I, I know the show. I know the reach. I mean, people out there, I know that everybody that I just mentioned, who's an alderman, has friends at least they're listening right now. They're not listening. I'm trying to talk to you off the air I would love to before I talked about this story tomorrow. I would hope you would want to know what's going on. That's why try to give you weeks notice as I was working on the story because I do believe there's two sides, every story. And unfortunately, I didn't get much aside from the mayor because he said, I'm not talking about pending litigation. So tomorrow, five o'clock if you're sort of county, you may not even know about the impending annexation, that's going on, if you're part of that area too large area, you better, you, you need to listen to Mars. Well, and if your business owner small business owner, you do business in olive branch to sorta county, even if you don't live there, you need to pay attention more five o'clock. I'll have more on that story tomorrow here on the show. Just wanna give you heads up on that. Now, let me get to India's. Let's get back to this audio because today. In fact, before the as I want to go to story, my second story because this deals with Loretta Lynch, and I want to get to this real quick, because I think it's a really important story. And this is part of the reason why Democrats are rushing to impeachment right now. Loretta Lynch has denied telling James Comey to call Clinton Email probe. A quote matter. So while Democrats are trying to impeach president and show you bunch of shiny objects distract. You. Others in the party are under scrutiny for lies that they've told. And now those lives are catching up to them. One, for example, is former FBI director James, combing, the same ranking committee member that does that has to sit below the chairman, Nadler, Doug Collins decided to release eight closed door hearing transcripts from Loretta Lynch, Andrew, McCabe and others. These are hearings from his committee's investigation into the FBI. No bombers department of Justice, and how they handle the Trump dossier, which we now know is fake the Pfizer court warrant, and the witch on into Donald Trump to try to ruin him and his family's life. These are hearings that happen. And they're just letting us know what happened in that. Now, these transcripts have made us aware that either Loretta Lynch or James Comey are specifically lying. The question is was it lying under oath? And we know that both their stories don't match up. So we know that one of them's telling the truth or maybe neither of them, but certainly, one of them by default is lying, one major piece of information that we now have been able to confirm that the former attorney general under Barack Obama through James Comey under the bus big time. Loretta Lynch, we now know told congress that she never asked the FBI director to refer to the Clinton criminal investigation as quote a matter. Qomi said the exact opposite one one of these two is lying, and whoever lied to congress should be in deep trouble because they did it under oath. And that's the reason why for Democrats that are screaming all the time about telling the truth under oath, and you're under oath, this person wrote that person that you, you get my point that I'm saying here. It's, it's very clear now that either Loretta Lynch's lied under oath or James Comey lied under oath. Now, Sean Hannity introduced this news last night on his show and handy talked about this. Breaking news about Lynch and Komi. And he talked about how, you know, basically look not only that, but where's the media on this? Where excuse me, where's the media on this? All this happened because of a fake dossier and a hoax, something that should have never turned into a court warrant. And now we know that one of these two people lied under oath. Take a listen this from Hannity last night. I want to set the stage tonight is just the beginning of what is coming every day week month ahead. And there is a ton of it an avalanche new information new documents. They will all reveal a shocking level of corruption bias, Wallis's at the highest levels of the deep state. It's all about to be revealed at this hour, you'll federal government is in possession of transcripts from 2016 featuring secretly recorded conversations between FBI informants and one time Trump campaign, ad George popadopoulos, according to those who have seen these transcripts. Its contents are chock full of clear. Irrefutable. Incontrovertible exculpatory. The evidence proving Trump Russia collusion was always a hoax. Now that was Hannity last night. I want you to hear. And of course, my point is I think the point that Sean was making this has always been hoax. Everybody knew it. Everybody knew that this was a hoax, even former house oversight committee. Chairman trade gallery came out last last night on FOX, claiming the FBI withheld potential game changing evidence from the Pfizer court during the Russia, probe because they knew they told the truth. There gave the whole picture, or the whole story about the dossier that there's no chance in hell that the Pfizer court would have given the warrant that they gave take a listen to that Trey Audi last night as well. And if the bureau was going to send an informant and inform it's going to be wired. And if the bureau's monitoring telephone calls, there's going to be a trench group of that, and some of us have been fortunate enough to know whether or not those transcripts exist, but they haven't been made public, and I think one in particular is going it has the potential to actually persuade people very little. This Russia probe. I'm afraid is going to tweet people who hate Trump or who love Trump. But there is some information in these transcripts that I think, has the potential to be a game changer if it's ever made public keyword if it's ever made public. Now back to what Hannity was saying. At least some of this information is finally out there, and we're going to see whether or not it changes public perception about this entire, I don't want to call it a mess because a mess entire hoax ally. We all know they're putting things that we don't know when it comes to Russia investigation. But we do know that, that it was all based on a lie. And that there is that were made in now what we now also know is that Loretta Lynch James Comey lied under oath because they both are telling you different stories. And we know that from the transcripts. You know, the other part about this is we while some Democrats continue to push for this unredacted Miller report. And again, the reason why they're pushing for is because they know that there's nothing in this redaction, it's damning, but they need another reason to impeach Trump. While they're doing that saying, look over here at the object Republicans are looking even deeper into what the FBI has has done, and the previous administration that, that is not known to the public that no one knows about you get my point. Now. Gals gouty also Trig out. He also called out the use of the dossier, which which new information shows the FBI knew it was fake, and they still used it to get that Pfizer court warrant take a listen to this. We can call it a dossier. It sounds official. It's really something, the National Enquirer would blush if they printed. So we know that it was used four times, by the United States government, what we're trying to figure out is whether or not it was used a fifth time and the intelligence assessment, and you got Brennan, Clapper and Komi, all three who know full well, whether or not it was used in the intelligence assessment, but they're giving you different. They're giving you different versions. They're giving you different versions..

And and it's astonishing because Bob, hey, sue, somebody could get killed for this test. Right. Right. Right. And he's doing this to get some time off on his jail sentence. That's that's that's what he's seventy eight. He's doing if an exchange for a letter and the letter to the judge overseeing his case, and he did mention today that and that the government has they they helped span bring his family to the United States. And you know, so that they don't get killed. And he doesn't he doesn't look too nervous on the stand. If anything I don't it's it's the first time that he he's been he's seen or he's focused being in the same room as Chapo in about a decade and taking his eyes off. I don't think he's linked in two days. And but he he he doesn't seem to nervous and he's doing all of this an exchange for a letter in the story that we have from your from your paper. It's two things. It looks like he's cuffed and a chair is that true. Yeah. He is. And he he's been he's an he's wearing navy maybe prison, I had fish, and then he isn't hangups surrounded by US marshals and you described him as an accountant slash. Drug dealer, which is interesting, right. Yeah. Well, this was big money. I mean, billions and billions of dollars and cocaine was getting smuggled somebody's gotta keep track of that. Right. Right. Yes. Some someone's gotta someone's got to keep keep an eye on the books. So the idea of this witness was to try to say to the jury, no El Chapo is the real leader of that drug cartels know, lower. Exactly exactly he he's he's the government's first cooperating witness of of many out. Of course, he's he's also, you know, testifying against his own brothers and who who's the alleged current leader of the cartel. So it's it's pretty wild. It's pretty Wilders the tension in the courtroom help Ables tropical himself, you know, up until now jury selection last week, so far, you know, he's a period time engaged sort of gently taking notes, and he has an interpreter. And normally he's kind of just staring into space and listening to his interpreter. But since somebody has has taken he hasn't take his is taking his eyes off in one. We haven't lost any more jurors due to panic attacks restress. They come down the jurors. Come down slightly, although we got off to a late third on Tuesday and unaccounted of to jittery. Jurors. I am a young woman brought a doctor's knows dating much suffering from medical issues as a result of selection. The same woman broke down laughing to the judge after she was officially selected he described be extensively crying. But he he declined to excuse their last week kind of anticipating that others might try and follow suit. But I guess they the doctors networks in the end, and then the other guy, and he called George W self-employed and he's copy to work for the next four months, which is how long does trial is expected to laugh, but things seem to have they they seem to have calmed down. But they definitely some wide. I, you know, it's it's a lot to take in. And I think, you know, the reality of this is definitely set in judging by the look on their faces. Are there any people, you know, in Brooklyn that you cover this? You're like how did we get this case here? Are people laughing? This is a Mexican drug Lord. I mean, they took him to the US to try them. And then they take up all the way to Brooklyn. I know right. It's done. I know I believe Chicago really wanted him as well. So prosecutors in eastern district are pretty happy about this. I believe it was we're Loretta Lynch was attorney general when when they extradited him, and she that's why prosecutors got him niece during district in Brooklyn. And and certainly, you know, this it's community. They're closing in the Brooklyn Bridge every time they bring him over to cord. So it's like this is. Which is going to say, it's unprecedented security. I've read it is. It is unbelievable. You know, you can really feel the tension in the court heights. And they're armed US marshals outside the courthouse. And I said the courtroom itself, you know, a Geiger counters as you walk in detect gradation and canine
