Ah, fan of the work I do and how I go about it. Let me invite you to take a listen to something I'm creating called the debrief with me, Major Garrett. We're launching it next week. On Tuesday, July What is my calendar? Tell me 28th I think is the correct date. I might be wrong As you all know, in the pandemic world. We live in days kind of blur together, but it's next Tuesday. We'll have all the greatest podcast pot forms. It will be one subject with a deep dive and lots of perspective. Now, historical perspective sound from today sound from tomorrow, as we say in the trailer. Anyway, the debrief with me, Major Garrett, please. If you have a chance, and you're curious, and I hope you are take a listen. Roger Kristen Morty is our special guest this week, Democratic Congressman Eighth District of Illinois. I also want to talk to you about lots of people I know because I covered the epic 7 4008 battle between many Candace but principally Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Many people remember that campaign and consider that the beginning of the Obama phenomenon, or maybe they were there or nearby in 2004. Come on now. You were there when it really got started. And it didn't get started well or successfully your 2000 What was the campaign? What happened? And what do you remember? No, I I did. Some policy were 1999 2000 congressional run Aah! And you know that he Let me put it this way. He took the silver medal. He was the first loser as they say yes. And so Bobby Rush won that race. It was a primary. I think, even to this day, every time that Bobby sees the president, he reminds right race. I think he's the last guy who beat him, right? Yeah. No. And and then after that I joined again in 2000 to the summer of 2002. I guess I became his policy director for his U. S. Senate campaign. And I got to tell you, he that that race did not start out a suspiciously. I think there must have been 13 candidates or something like that jumped in at the very beginning. The field winnowed to seven. And and even then I have to. I have to recall that he was not favored to win except that you know, certain things started happening some fortuitously and then I got to say we did a lot of good work in terms of just Being steady and not, you know, going off of the issues and really engaging voters and and you saw what happened on Primary night, he won 53% of the seven person in primary, and the rest is history. What do you think History will say about his influence on American politics? I think that my my, my particular take obviously have a little prejudiced unless I know Obama non the Obama phenomenon. I think that Barack Obama presented a time in our history where We started to tackle the big problems. He pulled us out of a tremendous recession, You know, in the first months of his presidency I think he had a trillion dollar deficit on his hands. In his first year, he battled it down to 4 to 500 billion thie economy was roaring by the time he left office. But so many other good things happened, including entering the Paris climate change accords. We obviously saw what happened with LGBTQ rights flourishing and, you know, we saw a lot of people feel like they were part of the family, so to speak. And you know, as an ethnic, religious and racial minority myself. That's very important to me that everybody feels like they're they're part of the great American family and mosaic regardless of where you come from, or regardless of the letter number of letters in your name. In my case, I have 29 so It. Not that anyone's counting understood taxes. So what? What role does he play? What role does history or will history ascribed to him about the rise of Donald Trump? If any I think that Barack Obama in my, in my opinion, advanced the ball quite a bit. But there was a reaction in this country among certain folks when they first Arrived in office, and unfortunately that that reaction was not was not living up to the best ideals of who we are as Americans. Was it a racial reaction? In some parts. Yes, and I think that it did not help that. Some of my colleagues said things like my goal is to make Barack Obama one term president. It does not help when people are, you know. Playing the dog whistle on racial issues and so forth. All that being said in 2016. I do believe Donald Trump won because you know that old native Americans saying is true, which is in each of us is a good wolf in a bad wolf. And the wolf we become, is the wolf you feed and you know Donald Trump fed the bad wolf, he said. The reason why you are facing the problems. You are a za person, Middle America. France is dealing with the global economy and the technology revolution on DH everything else that's happening. Is because of that person over there, and.

Corona virus Kobe, 19 All the adaptations we either are or are not making as a country and what is the near term outlook? And what are some of the things we can do to know how we're doing and how to reopen and how to prepare for whatever comes next. And then a broader discussion about health care in America. How does it rate What does it do? Well, what does it do poorly and what kind of things should we think about to address the things we do well on the things we need to do much better at And our guests to help us through. That is Zeke Emanuel. Zeke. I want to say hello. It's great to talk to you. Nice to be here. Thank you for having me on. So I want to start with my audience by having you go through your resume. And the first thing you have to address is your two lesser known brothers. Yes, I I have Ah, wonderful brothers. I spoke to both of them today. Rahm Emanuel, Former everything in government Congressman. Chief of staff counselor to the president and mayor of Chicago, and I spoke to my other brother Arial, the agent supreme, really great strategic thinker when it comes to entertainment sports. On all things before eyeballs, yes, and inspiration for entourage. Is that a safe way of describing it or part of entourage the least the milieu for that show. I wouldn't know. I actually have not looked at entourage. I don't own a TV. Look Excellent. What qualifies you, Zeke? This is the actual part of your resume, Not the jokey part of your resume to have this conversation. You have a tremendous history in here. And I want my daughters to know what it is that you've done. Well, I trained as a physician and I oncologist in Boston. I've also been bioethicists worked on improving end of life care for more than three decades now, I've also worked a lot on health policy trying to improve the whole American health care system. I was in the Obama administration for two years for Cheon. The affordable Care Act implementation as well as global health elements. There I've written or edited 14 books published. 300 plus articles on then lots of op EDS. And all sorts of other stuff. Are you at this moment currently advising any presidential campaign? Yes, I am on the I guess. Coded nine passports for vice president. By very good on covert 19. Where are we? And how alarmed or not alarmed. Should we be about where we are and where we're heading? I need to preface this. We don't know each other tremendously well, but I'm a relentless optimist, and maybe you picked them up for my book. I actually think that things are improving. Um, except Rick over it. It's hard to describe the response that we've had, you know, over the last four months, beginning end of February early March, is anything other than In confidence and pretty disastrous. Um And I think you know here we are early July on DH. In some ways, we're right back where we were mid march, and we've made no progress if anything might have slipped behind because We've imposed a lot of restrictions on Americans they are chasing at those restrictions. Quite understandably. And yet our case numbers in terms of number of new infections. Mortality. Ah, A number of states that are having really serious hot spot is either the same as it was in mid March or worse. And so that's not progress. That's Ah regression. We In some ways you could say we've wasted four months. So as you have observed, and I think anyone who has understood politics before Cove it 19 has observed. There was about 4 to 8 weeks when this was not a partisan issue, and then it went away and became a partisan matter of what you thought or said. Or what statistics you called from the available data about their work over in 19 was or where it was headed. So let me just offer some of the statistics that those who are on the Trumpian side of this equation. You're holding on to right now. The president says 40 million tests. That's a tremendous increase from where we were. That's progress. Fewer people when they go to the hospital or need ventilators. That's progress. And even if they need them, we have an ample supply. That's progress. The mortality rate he's been all over Twitter. For the last three or four days. The mortality rate is at a two month low. That's progress. Evaluate those statistics for Mia's from from his non partisan and data driven perspective as you can. Yeah, look, I like to be data driven, and I've given the president his due when he deserves with you. First of all, let's just break down the mortality issue. It is true that the mortality rate has gone down. I think two or three things account for that. The first thing is what we're seeing in the South and the West are younger people getting infected and we know that their mortality rate from this virus is lower. Second, I think probably a little bit more important is in the 45 months that doctors have been treating Cove it 19. They've gotten better. We know certain things. Now that we didn't know before. Don't put people on ventilators. Probably a bad idea. Give them high concentrations of oxygen without intimating them. That's putting the two down their throats. They do better. Doctors have also figured out how to put on the P P e the protective equipment much better so that we're not transmitting by risk. The sicker patients in the hospital or inert were also protecting nursing homes. God than we were initially. Absolutely. And the last thing I would say, is we actually certainly now in the last I don't know. 34 weeks. Have dexamethasone this steroid, which really does seem to have actually quite good. Ah, fax on the sickest patients, patients who need oxygen or our intubated. And so we are saving Mohr lives..

"I'm major Garrett hosting creator of this amazing program known as the Takeout, Where each and every week we are two things. What are those two things relentlessly curious, steadfastly non ideological. I want to get straight to our very special guest. This week. John Bolton, the third national security advisor. President of states. Donald Trump. Mr Ambassador. Great to see you. Thanks for joining us. Well, thanks for having me glad to be here. As you well know, Mr Ambassador, The Associated Press has reported for a couple of days now in March of 2019 it says. On your watch his national security advisor. You briefed President Trump on underlying intelligence that Russia Through the GR you had recruited or was attempting to recruit Taliban mercenaries to target American forces in Afghanistan. Is that true? Well, I'm saying no comment on that. I did The Associated Press because of the controversy about whether the government believes there's classified information in my book. I wrote the book in my judgment Without any classified information. I went through four months of a prepublication. Review process to make sure that was true s O. I don't want to talk about the information A such I'll just say this based on the reports, though. In public. It seems to me this is a very serious proposition. If it's true, and it's something that that I think the U. S needs to respond to in a very, very strong manor. You know we could talk about the question is the is the quote unquote intelligence, Verified or not? I think that's a significant point. I think the White House has been all over the lot on this and that that fills me with concern as well. Is it all over the lot? Because that's the way this White House operates. It is exactly for that reason Might. My count as of are speaking today is the president's had about three different stories on it on his his advisers have have even Mohr so it's growing more confusion. And I think this Open discussion about the intelligence because of the stories. The demonstration of the confusion inside the White House on Lee gives our adversaries the stronger impression that the president simply doesn't pay attention to what he's being told, or two thinking systematically about how you respond to it. With your indulgence, Mr Ambassador. I want to play a sound from this very morning Ofyour successor, Robert O'Brien, National Security advisor, calling this overall story a success in his words. Let's play that the real story here..

and Harvey Korman would put together can remember laughing uproariously at that if you haven't seen it folks and I think Tony will be the great Tony Hale will back me up on this go to YouTube and find the Tim Conway Harvey Korman sketch where Tim Conway is a dentist yes it was just meant to say that the perfect one that's the perfect one email not as well known until take our advice ladies and gentlemen just take our advice if you haven't seen it go find it because you got plenty of time at home and you'll laugh laugh laugh it's also so fluid it's so that's another thing that template we did so well was his it was so organic in the way he did it and it just happened very naturally use the bus so Veep you obviously know in your travels meeting people in Washington and preparing for the show at it's not that funny in real life DC the show and I sometimes think that show is a combination of all the things that the consultants to help you with the show which they had thought of in like seventy different incarnations of their life but never thought of in the moment but thought of a week later all these biting lines all this great repartee is all the things that they wish they had said at the moment but now there's a show where they can have absolute say for them in the moment and it's really really funny my dress it's also I this is one of the main reasons not one of many reasons but one of the reasons I miss it is is it was you know when you're watching politics on the news you sometimes you want to laugh because it's so crazy but you had a kind of a guilt attached to it laughing because it's real life I felt like B. was this kind of political outlook were given the freedom to laugh no doubt it was something that I can okay I don't have such a difficult laughing at this as I do it you know exactly and true story so if you watch the credits crawl up to the show you'll see a name is a contributor Erik lesser I know Eric lesser I met him on the Obama campaign when he was a bag handler on the Obama campaign in two thousand seven a two thousand eight is now in a scheme to member of the Massachusetts state legislature but he was a consultant on the show and I thought to myself here's a guy who is in politics here's a guy who was in all the rooms here's a guy who saw a lot of these conversations and he's someone who is helping either the writers or advising or in some kind of capacity is worthy of it of a credit line and I think I assume you will be brought in a lot of people like that who actually brought their own perspective from a real life and politics to add some authenticity and unrevealed humor to the show itself yeah we did and I was like even Frank rich was a was one of the producers and he had a lot of political consultant forensic came in and helped us out and it was it didn't the scary part about it is when we were doing the show we would go to DC we would hear things there like you have no idea how this is that this is actually happening or how this is very much real and I'm like please don't say that out loud we don't know what's happening but like you would ever want to wear a DC and these people come up to us and I get it I this is one of the reasons I used I I also know the reason I like years ago we started I felt like he gave a little bit of a slice of what was going on behind the scenes together rather than all of these sound bites and all that kind of stuff but people come up to us and he seems like I am I am I'm I'm Dan in my office and dance one of the characters on B. people right down on my as a I'm Amy and I'm like right I want these are horrible people horrible character that is not encouraging but right now it's like oh yeah I'm the Jonah in mind I'm like Joan is an atrocious human being really someone cop to that really no no that's your fault my leg will be cop to Jonah don't tell me that I think of going to use it as a badge of honor well I only Jonah would I guess exactly if you ever thought about if you did have a job you know west wing what it would you want what you want to be maybe just the encourager special assistant to the president for encouragement well I just think I was on a business card but you know we can work it out but yeah I would say like I mean it didn't obviously the person that you had right now is not the most sympathetic person but I think there's a lot of people who work in DC who are really who are really doing their best and are really trying to be compassionate and trying to see and hear others and I feel like it's a pressure cooker man it's like and I I just I I would want to encourage those people because I think that's that's that's really hard environment to be a I'm glad I'm glad you mentioned that well the reason I created the show was to let people know that people do not come to Washington to destroy the country they just got up in Washington since nineteen ninety I have met people on both sides of the aisle who are deeply passionate work really hard do things that they believe it all rights for the things that they believe are the right reasons and they're here to make something better and they're not here to destroy the country but one of the subversive goals of my show is to let people know even people you disagree with are not here to make your life worse they're here because they have a set of beliefs and they work really hard at them and it's not as easy as the looks of it looks easy it's harder and there are a lot of stakes involved and emotions involved and projection involved you got to put yourself out and take a lot of heat to do what people do in the city and I even to add to that it's I don't think it's just I don't think it's just politics it's just in life you're gonna come across those people and you you're gonna you're gonna be for you to have it for you to grow as a person and to really learn and gain empathy in our human race you're going to have to connect to people with different beliefs and thoughts and learn how to communicate you know so it's I don't think it's just on the political route you know and I want to ask you this sort of going back to your actual life not sure actor life how did you spend Easter and I know you are someone who when you were in New York early in your acting career you created a group that was open to and encouraging of people of a strong Christian faith hi I was Easter for you hot hat and and how do you find faith involving itself in this actual experience we're going through day by day yeah that's a great question I used was unique as it was for was for everybody we my family and I sat in our living room we watched our church had their service online and just you know they did a beautiful job the choir was all in their separate houses and they combined in this kind of virtual choir and it was really beautiful and I mean I I get a lot of I think just not necessary in this situation but I think just in life knowing that the fact they were spending on a planet which is crazy I get a lot of insurance knowing that god is with me and gives me strength and peace during times like this there's a lot of questions that are not going to be answered no I don't have the answers all the questions but having a presence that's a higher power that it's maybe see the bigger picture is very comforting to me and I think in relation to just kind of since we were just talking about politics well I wanted to but it's it's anyways that's a whole other topic we sure sure but I saw you on the cold air show Stephen Colbert show and you in your freezer elegy drop some Philippians yeah any verses that have been particularly meeting for you in this period our resident to you in this period yeah I mean I think I I think the ones that are always resonant R. there's one that talks about the fruits of the spirit meaning there is refer to the spirit our love joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness and self control and I'm not at all the master of all those but hopefully I'm working on two or three of those on a good day yeah it's a guideline expressly during times like this and how to treat each other in the grace and empathy to give each other and then the other one is I think I mentioned my mention on the call do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition present your requests to god so the peace of god will come over you and I think that's what I have for my face I'm just having a god that I can vent to and I can be very honest too and I can cuss too and I can have many questions and just having that space and there's many times that I am filled with peace that's the voice the great Tony Hale more on that conversation when we come back I'm major Garrett is the take out.

Gordon johndroe who work for the president is a press lead was sitting up in the front seat of the van is a flip phone at that time rang and all of our beeper started going off again this is before a lot of cell phones in the got on the phone he said well how big is it and we're what do you how big is you know we're just over hearing him speak and he said okay thanks let me know he said after I just wanna let you guys know there's been a plane crash in New York City don't know how big we've been told it's a small plane just so in case that comes up in the rest of the day it's not going to throw us off track here everything's all set schedule back to Washington this does I will say two of a two day education trip to Florida that's exactly right so we talk outside the classroom before we went in Gordon said Hey having or anything else so I think we're good we went in the classroom like any other presidential visit to a classroom the children were very well dressed and very you know behave the president's gonna read a story told the teacher read a story to arm and that started on and then on the whole I looked over at the door the door opened up and the chief of staff any card walk to the door wow chief of staff walking into the classroom very unusual extremely unusual so my radar went off right away mmhm and so and I'd known any card from when he worked for bush forty one this is bush forty three cell I looked it handles like a top and nothing from him right away you could tell he was in very very intense a lot on his mind and I don't know what's going on in the game is a two I don't know what you meant no idea so I thought okay we'll wait final two is so I'm keeping my eye on the president he's talking there reading and all of a sudden and he kept getting inch closer to the president I thought oh my gosh sums up some going on he's going to come over and say some of the president so he walked over bent down whispered into the presence here and your I was taking pictures and I'm thinking what is going to hold the shutter you just go yeah yeah shooting and sell realize something's going on and then when he stood there and then the chief of staff left the room and the president I'd states was sitting there with that look on his face like oh my gosh yeah he was completely distracted this point it wasn't I know he was criticized for sitting there for so long when I was in the room it never felt like it was that long he was obviously thinking about all of those briefings everything that happened everything that he had been warned off there was ever a possibility was going down and it wasn't until we love to go to New York City to ground zero few days later that any car came back on the plane with the president the president speaking with reporters and I said Eddie you gotta tell me what did you tell the person and he said well I told Mister president a second aircraft is just at the World Trade Center America is under attack and then he walked away and that's what you meant that's what to me a second here we had we knew about the first plane crash we didn't know that a plane crash into the World Trade Center so from there we went you know into that room where you were where they were doing the the next event and it was the most incredible day you know when my career really shooting because I stayed with him the whole day and I'll never forget you know we went to Louisiana we went to Nebraska and then we flew back to the White House and made that turn around the Pentagon it was still smoldering we had an F. sixteen fighter right off the wings so close on the wing on Air Force One that one of the one of the stewards on the plane came over to talk you gotta come see this is like what you said you got to come over the other side and I went over the other side of Air Force One looked out the window and there was this F. sixteen on the wing so close as you can see the pilots face and he looked over at us gave us a thumbs up off he went and luckily I took like two or three pictures you know before he killed off and most incredible day few days later we went up to ground zero another day that I'll never forget we were on the hello we went by helicopter I happen to be on a helicopter with members of Congress including Hillary Clinton sitting three or four people down from me she was center at that time we have been up in there maybe fifteen twenty minutes and start to smell like the helicopter was on fire and oh my gosh something's burning you know everybody starts looking around the smaller numbers yeah so then finally we S. marines you smell that use only that's why took his helmet off he said that's that's ground zero what twenty minutes away and that's that's the the smell from ground zero that's how bad it smelled wait till we get closer oh my gosh so then we flew in you know to New York and landed in now with the governor the mayor was Giuliani Pataki was a governor mayor Giuliani and you've seen a lot of well scripted well choreographed presidential events in your life was that the furthest thing from it that was about as unscripted is a cat because there were so many people at ground zero at that point so much security so many firefighters everybody who wanted to be there yeah there's a lot out there was a lot of passion there a lot of you know just American just pride everybody wanted to be there even though you look and you see all the windows have been blown out the advanced person Bruce anchor at the time who work for President Bush was trying his damndest to get us anywhere he could and everybody was holding us back you know they were like no you can't no no press I mean we were literally crawling through the crowd to get up and then Bruce we got up there and said the president is over there he's standing on a fire truck like I couldn't see the press and what it means to say our fire trucks we got over there we could see this fire truck was two or three feet tall it completely smashed it down he said he's he's standing right there he said we're about to leave and that's when everybody started cheering then the president went up on stood up on the on the fire truck with that fire.

"Major Garrett from the nation's capital major fantastic it's the ticket to major with CBS news chief Washington correspondent that's nonsense major Garrett you should know about welcome to the river as part of a broadcast week I'm major Garrett host and creator of this amazing program known as the take out where each and every week we are about two things what are those two things well relentless curiosity and we are steadfastly non ideological and if there's ever a topic ladies and gentleman that knows no ideological barriers or geographic barriers or any other kind of barriers it is corona virus I really think of the show this week is something for our radio audience our podcast listeners and those on CBS and as the closest thing we can do to a public service because all we're going to do mostly during this episode is talk about what we know what we need to know how to react and how not to over react if that's possible to corona virus it is the dominant public health story globally and it is becoming a fast moving story in the public health community and every other part of American life and we have a phenomenal guest help was walk through our education process her name is Dr Leana Wen is an emergency physician a public health leader she has written a critically acclaimed book and a companion Ted talk on transparency in medicine that book when doctors don't listen two million times that's been viewed that Ted talk in twenty nineteen doctor when was named one of time magazine's one hundred most influential people I think I came in about six billion on that list so she's way ahead of me on that Dr when it's great to have you with us thanks for joining us thank you and thank you for coming out here and both support out here to charm city to city that reads city of Baltimore exactly Jake you need to get my my car so I can hear it she was also the health commissioner for the city for eight years for four years for years okay for years so that is someone my name is John but it was wonderful right love serving the city so at the front lines of public health thinking about planning for and adjusting to situations maybe not precisely like this but you thought conceptually about things such as the corona virus so also ladies in German I want to tell you something that we did some of you already know this for the first time in the show's history had posted a video asking for your questions on this topic and often times when people do that they're not really serious about it they say send us your questions and ask one I'm not doing that we got a lot of questions and I'm starting the show with those questions because they were good we sifted them without asking every single one of him for asking a representative sample for sure we'll go right to it I'm not burying those or sort of catalyzing them at the end of the show started right right from what you asked so Dr went from Twitter sure Joanne writes can you get the corona virus twice have it get well catch it again it's a really good question and I want to preface everything that we're saying today with first by emphasizing that corona viruses novel coronavirus cover nineteen is new do not not all that's what's the deal it's new that's right and so there's a lot that we now are finding out about it but there's a lot that we still don't know and everything that I say I'm going to be clear here's what we know here's what we don't know and because I believe that truth honesty transparency arms are so critical right and and so what we know about coronavirus is that it's a respiratory illness that it's something that's transmitted you can think about it as the cold or the flu that we're sitting here next to each other if I sneeze or cough into droplets land on you then you could get it or if I sneeze and cough into my hand and shake your hand and you touch your face right or touch elevator button or a door handle or something like that it can be moved that way that's right but when you touch your face as in it yes if you just have it on your hand it's not going to do anything but it's a mucous membranes of your nose and mouth replies that its friends and transmitted we also know that about eighty percent of people who gets called in nineteen the new coronavirus have mild symptoms and some people may not even know that they have it and I'm mention all of this to your to this person's question because what we think what what we understand about crossfire so far about the recovery is that eighty percent of people have mild symptoms don't require hospitalization or specific medical treatments and they'll recover and then they'll be fine it seems unlikely based on what we know so far we know so far they will be re infected again and again right now nobody has immunity to corona virus but those who get it ones made develop immunity to it but we don't have good evidence of that yet right okay excellent this is from Chloe past while what are the criteria for getting tested for corona virus how many Americans have been tested for we're going to leave that question aside because this show will run over this weekend and next week and whatever number we say about who's been tested it's going to be inoperable in a two or three days so let's focus on the first question what are the criteria so the criteria has been changing mmhm initially west it's a it's a very good question and it could it it will be changing also throughout the next couple of weeks again emphasizing that this is a new virus constantly evolving situation I do want to emphasize to about the constantly evolving part some people when they hear about change they might think it sounds like chaos right but we should also not going on yet but we do know is that we're just learning that's right and that constant reevaluation is a good thing the constant reevaluation is the bedrock of a good public health response you expect for people to be nimble and agile and adjust to new evidence that's guidelines right that if new evidence comes out you adjust your plan so initially when coronavirus looked like it was limited to China the initial testing criteria that.

"Stop keeping you together from CBS news. This is the takeout with major Garrett. We wanted to go out and do a thorough reexamination of the intelligence community assessment that originally came out in January of twenty seventeen and we went out look through all the documents talk all the folks in basically came back and said that intelligence community Cessna was right. The Russians massively intervened in our election. They happened to both political parties they did it with the intent of trying to help Trump and hurt corn. So that point we have unanimity on major voice. You just heard of Senator Mark Warner vice chairman of the bipartisan Senate intelligence community committee. He said that right here at the place for at all purpose pizza the date September fourteenth two thousand eighteen our guest, Dave Bossie, and Corey Lewandowski who have a fundamentally different opinion about the intelligence community assessment. The personally worked for to elect as president United States, Donald Trump. So Corey take a shot at what sort of Warner said on this show. So that massively intervened and did it to try to help Trump and hurt Clinton is absolutely fake news. Okay. What's there's no evidence whatsoever to show that they change one vote on behalf of Donald Trump now did Russians and Chinese and Japanese and others. Maybe by some Facebook ads and put them in places that didn't make dolls. Okay. We don't know. Maybe a four hundred pound guy. We don't know. But look in our book, we talk about this major in in Trump's enemies. We talk about this very specifically. Let's be very clear there were no votes that were change. Because of what they did an even if there were which there were not Donald Trump won in such an overwhelming majority of electoral college votes that he could have actually lost the state of Florida and still get elected president how much of a blow out it was this didn't occur. What Mark isn't what what's not clear about. What did not talked about is how this entire dossier came to be the five million dollars from Perkins Koi? Which was the law firm of Clinton's campaign that paid to a British spy Christopher Steele to go to Russia to put together a false dossier that dossier was then provided to fusion GPS, and the person fusion GPS whose name is Nellie or she was the female woman who worked there with the owner of. Of fusion and her husband was, Bruce or still is. And he was at the time serving as the number four person at the State Department had nothing I'm sorry, justify nothing proof. I read the book now, so he was a number four person at the at at the bar, and he his job Justice had absolutely nothing to do with Russia or Russia interference zero none. But she took that false dossier. She handed to her husband, and he personally walked over to the Justice department to the FBI and gave that to the people over there. Whether it was Komi or McCabe or Peter Struck who's in charge of the Clinton Email investigation in is the same individual who interview interviewed general, Mike Flynn who was having the affair with Lisa page. They had an insurance policy in place to make sure Donald Trump was never like. And these are my words we have their text messages. They're very public now. And we saw what they did. So Mark Warner is one hundred percent wrong. He's hack. Says the third intelligence committee. That's not true. Lack of intelligence committee, but got quite partisan. Richard burr. The Republican doesn't disagree with what Mark Warner said on my program. He doesn't have unanimity on that water said that. Yes. You heard him say that. Oh, jeez. I should take everything. Mark Warner says to the Bank. I guess I'm just saying I don't listen to the guy says, okay? Because first of all, he's a partisan hack. That's all he is. That's all he's ever been all as very wealthy, which I envy, just just to remind you have also been accused of that, Ben rich. Nobody's ever. Now a partisan guide. No question. I am. Have been accused. Son's bestselling on multiple dial point raising that is that is a phrase that gets thrown around a lot that may sometimes it's true anything. But look major look this is so simple. So simple Hillary Clinton lost the campaign because she's a terrible candidate. Okay. She forgot where Michigan while she didn't go to Pennsylvania. She never went to Wisconsin. She lost because she was terrible. And after the election they had to find a way to justify her loss. They couldn't come to the realization that they lost a campaign that they should have won it. So they made up a fake Russia story. I'm eating, but I'm going to say for that we eat Iraq. Oh, there is nobody responsible. For the Russian incursion into our election process, and maybe others, the we know the North Koreans were always trying. We we've seen this act before another elections. Only one person is responsible because there was only one president. And that was Barack Obama if his administration saw what was going on? How is it? How is it that they either were so incompetent they couldn't figure it out or so stupid? They didn't figure it out. I don't know which one it is. But it's one of them. And here's why during the election in September and October. I got a briefing myself in Mike Flynn. We got briefings from the department of homeland security about what was going on with election security, and all that wasn't about this. But it was right? They didn't bring any other up. You think they should have? Either incompetent or stupid, and I don't know. Was there any maliciousness in there? Okay. Well, because in the book, you imply that there was something incomplete about what president I knew conversations in these conversations that I got from people at department of homeland security DOJ wherever from they didn't mention, hey, guys pay attention. If you see anybody throwing Russian vodka around or eating Russian dressing. Make sure you pay attention to it. Make sure you understand. In your opinion of incompetent. Hundred percent incompetent where the accountability for where. Where's the? All of your words, Corey where is the accountability for the people who served in the government in the previous administration. So it's all their fault who who allow spot would it be? Hello, I'm and I'm saying it factually, there was one group of people involved one group of people who were in power one group of people who had the security clearances, one group of people that had the badges and that we were we don't need those. In one group of people who were candidates. We were just we were running a this half ass campaign to be honest with you made your this happened in the twenty twenty election cycle. It would be on Donald Trump that watch it would be his director of national intelligence of his homeland security adviser, look Clapper and Komi and Brennan the triumph of criminal. John Brennan, CIA director, James Clapper. Now. The communist. He did vote for communist. Yes. Yes. In boston. Crooked Komi, right? We know that these guys were responsible for the Intel the intelligence community in our country, and they fail oath of you've mentioned, Michael Flynn. There have been significant developments in the last week or so has been represented that these are significant developments with a special counsel. What do you make of the time that Michael Flynn is man with a special counsel, so special counsel representations that he has been helpful? And that he knows more, and you know, so much that he's told the special counsel that which is told it has to be redacted and could be perilous to the president perilous. The president perilous. Meantime, he had this big word from dangerous. I know that word not legally jeopardize. Here's the thing. Major holistically job. I know Mike Flynn Mike traveled with us on the campaign for a period of time. He he he was the warm up act of some of the rallies. He was a good, man. He and he provided a an honorable service to his country in the military, and I respect Mike Flynn for that. But Mike real time around the. Candidate really incurred really happened during the transition from really went Donald Trump got elected president to Mike Flynn, getting punch out of the building in early February of two thousand seventeen so Mike's complete knowledge is about three or four months of time total and that went and yet he and Katie MacFarlane his top deputy have both admitted to lying, but I don't understand why this is a great question. Yeah. She's admitted to the Senate. She lied. You don't understand his nothing department of Justice measure council gave her a pass on it? But I don't know. But she wasn't. She didn't lie in a way that they prosecuted or no. To singapore. I understand. But look she is somebody she and Mike Flynn had conversations. Now that we understand that. Online. It's a great question. We'll we'll come to that. I don't know on the other side. That's Corey Lewandowski. Dave.

"Major Garrett maybe majors taken the Saturday off. We bumped up my two hours. I'll be here outside Miller park where the parking lots will be open in just a little while actually about an hour or so from now, but yeah, the parking lot about an hour. The takeout is odd hiatus for a week. I go three to five and that Greg Matzek will be in Miller park for the road to brew October starting at five o'clock, and then our network coverage starts at six thirty five tonight. First pitch. We'll be at seven zero nine. I said this this morning. I was filling in for Mark Seagraves sack. Wisconsin's weekend morning news. And I texted this to some people last night as well. I've lived here my whole life. And I know many of you have as well, even if you haven't it doesn't matter you're a brewers fan. It has not been often dare I say not once before have we been able to utter the phrase if the brewers wind today. They're going to the World Series. Think about that has that set. It yet. Gosh, what did I last night was here at Miller park? But really here in Milwaukee. I was at Pfizer forum for the regular season opener for the bucks. There were over seventeen thousand people inside Pfizer forum. Here at Miller park. There were over forty five thousand people there were approximately give or take sixty one thousand people. Either. Watching brewers baseball or watching backs basketball last night. That is incredible. Well, done Milwaukee that is remarkable. And I realize some people say well, of course, so what did you expect I expect Miller park to have forty five thousand plus in a do or die game six of LCS? But the fact that Pfizer form was packed as well. It made for an incredible night last night. I think is going to be one of those nights, regardless of what happens today at Miller park. I think last night will be one of those nights a Friday night in the middle of October. That people will never forget, maybe in some ways the way this past Monday night was the night for sports fans that that will never forget between the brewers went out in Los Angeles on Monday. And then you flip over to the Monday night football game and Aaron Rodgers is leading other dramatic comeback for the Packers against San Francisco up at Lambeau Field. So these are special times these are special times. For Milwaukee in Fort Worth for all of us for Wisconsin eits. For brewers fans, the Packers bucks for everything this is this is something that has to be embraced and enjoyed. I hope you're enjoying it. We'll take your calls as well. For one four seven nine nine one six twenty academic mortgage, talk and text line. I've got a couple of questions that I want to throw open throw out. I should say here in this first hour. A couple of things I think I think I I was I spent the last few hours just trying to wrack my brain putting what we're on the precipice of tonight the game seven I was trying to put it in some sort of perspective. And I'm thinking what? What was the last game here in Milwaukee that had this type of gravitas, this type of whoa type moment? And obviously you think naturally to well, when's the last time brewers were in this position. And there's a little bit of irony there thirty six years ago tonight, how about this for a fact thirty six years ago tonight was the last time the brewers played a game seven in the playoffs thirty six years ago tonight it was game seven although that one in the World Series and that one in St Louis brewers lose we know that story by now. But again that was in Saint Louis this one is here in Milwaukee a game seven. So when is the last time? Nineteen fifty eight by the way is the only other time that there was a game seven played in Milwaukee. That's when the Yankees beat the Braves Braves had that three one series lead lost the last three years. One game seven six two two right here on the footprint of county stadium. So this is only the second ever game seven in Milwaukee history. It's the biggest game here that this city has seen since win. Tell me am I missing something. Is there something that rivals? What we're going to have tonight four one four seven nine nine one six twenty the academic mortgage, talk and text line. I realize that many of you have been in this market have been in the city had been in this state for a very long time. You are smarter than me. You're more encyclop- pediatric. If that's a word it is now than me when it comes to sports history. But tell me the last time there was a game of this magnitude in Milwaukee. Maybe indeed it was nineteen fifty eight. I mean, yes, the brewers had the. The middle three games of the cardinal series. Here the World Series at eighty two. So they had game five was the last time. They had a game like this year. That's a game five, and it wasn't a an opportunity to win it out right at the time. So I don't know. The bucks. Do we go back to two thousand one? Yes. I realized they lost in the Eastern Conference finals to Philadelphia. So you think there you go? There was seven games seven games for the bucks to go to the NBA finals. Yes. But game seven wasn't Philadelphia game six was here in Milwaukee. And they had to win the game. And they did win the game that wasn't a game seven that was game six. So again, I think tonight Trump's that as well. I don't know. I mean is there anything that? This city has seen compared to what we're gonna see tonight four one four seven nine nine one six twenty the accident mortgage, talk and text line. I know many of you were right here at county stadium on this very piece of property in which I sit right now, by the way, we are right outside Miller park inside the WTMJ mobile studio. A lot of you were maybe here in eighty two for game five of that World Series. Maybe some of you were even here in fifty eight for that. Game seven between the Milwaukee Braves. And the Yankees. I dunno helped me out four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Hannity Chirac's producing the big program. Let's go to Dennis. Let's go line to Dennis in Milwaukee. Dennis good afternoon.

That's an listen many will ever you will win Washington DC to double-o three six and just watched me sign them folk. And now Bob Barker it is Rigo down. Now, we continue our conversation with the author of Mr. Trump's wild ride and before we broke. If you remember we we played a sound bite of the president late January twenty seventeen scientists I travel ban ordering. Here's what it led to Jamie shot number. There was chaos and confusion airports today. President Trump's immigration crackdown took effect protests erupted as refugees and immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries were detained or block from flights. Major tell us what you learned. In researching your book that we did not know about how that came together. Two very important things one. The president was presented eight options for this travel ban eight different options, he chose the least restrictive of the eight print place before their least restrictive of the eight. So you have come to know that there were seven more restrictive options that Donald Trump countries. More restrictions. Was this process thoroughly vetted throughout the administration answer? No that's pretty clear and one of the questions that country's been sort of kicking around for the last two weeks in part because of the op-ed anonymously written in the New York Times. And by that other book written by VW? Is there a process that's a bit chaotic look, ladies and gentlemen, the travel ban is a living breathing publicly. Adjudicated example of that. Impetuous driving intense, president says go, and they go I quote, Newt Gingrich in the book saying, you know, they did both things hurriedly because if you spend time getting it, right? You lose the boldness that's a general description. It's not an exact quote, but it captures the essence. Then there was a redrafting of the executive order, which Trump didn't even like and said so publicly then there was a memorandum backing it up three stages all the played out in public view all subjected to court scrutiny. In the end, the memorandum that reinforced the I two executive orders withstood not one but two passes before the United States Supreme court, and what does President Trump do now? Claire declare absolute victory why because he doesn't count the losses. I also, quote, former speaker Newt Gingrich why because he is a frequent regular adviser and confidante of the president. What is Newt Gingrich say about Donald Trump? He never counts the losses. Only the wins. The only counts the victories. So is this a Catholic process? Does it sort of jumble and jostle along the rails of governing. Yes. It does. You don't have to ask yourself. I wonder if that's true. Look at the travel ban. The travel ban is from beginning to end, which goes into two thousand eighteen an absolute illustration of how this process both. To some doesn't work. Some does work you can actually appraise which you either like or dislike about the Trump presidency. Through the travel ban all by itself. Another bit of news in the book all year, there's been this dance between the president attorneys and a special counsel over whether they will be on the record sworn interview between the special counsel this President Trump, you had White House lawyer, Ty Cobb on this program on this program this microphone, and he said that the president would be willing to sit down with Muller as long as it's not a perjury cap. What happened major right after Tuykov appeared on the takeout. So Ty Cobb the president's lawyer White House lawyer interacting on a daily almost hourly basis with a special counsel. I call Tycom about a week and a half before we did that episode. I said would you ever consider coming on the show was like, yeah. When you want to do it, and I'm like what? So that's the intelligent journalistic response. You expect it again. He's like, yeah. When you want wanna do it? Mike. Tuykov brings his handlebar moustache right up to this microphone and makes global news. I mean that news was insane. All over because the what was tight why did I didn't know this. Then I learned it later tycoon was laying the predicate, Mr. presidents, okay. Muller is responsible respectable. Prosecutor. We know the questions we have a center preparation you can handle this. He says the molar I don't think he would lay perjury trap laying sending a signal the Muller and the president pi Cobb is directionally talking through this show to the special prosecutor and the president John Dowd as I learned later, another one the president's attorney. Here's that show and goes nuts and says, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, forget it. No interview kills it. Convinces the president not to do. It was scheduled for January. Twenty seven was scheduled for January twenty seventh one of the many revelations in your new book, ask yourself, collectively, America. Where would we be in this soccer had the president talked to Robert Muller? January twenty seven. And not done a lengthy negotiation in between which Michael Cohen, David pecker of National Enquirer other people are implicated other things arise. Where would the story? Be with the president not have been wiser to do it. Then then never until now, we don't know one other thing, I didn't know was your retelling of what happened today that Robert Mueller was appointed you writing your book. About the fact that Jeff Sessions, the sitting attorney general actually submitted his resignation to the president and quit. His job went out to the west executive dry and had to be coaxed out of the car to receive his resignation wreck. We'll talk about that on the other side of this break. I major Garrett.
