They're both tied at three in the first set, and I got to tell you, I think it's going to be a late night there, so I'm going to catch that after I get off the set. And a couple of baseball scores, Yankees over the Tigers, 4-3, bottom eight, top eight, Cardinals lead the Braves 8-6, White Sox over the Royals 5-2, bottom eighth, top of the sixth, Astros over the Rangers 8-2, no score, Orioles and Angels bottom first, Pirates earlier tonight defeated the Brewers 5-4, Guardians over the Twins 2-1, Cubs defeated the Giants 8-2, Athletics over the Blue Jays 5-2, Diamondbacks crushed the Rockies 12-5, Phillies topped the Reds 5-1, Tampa Rays 3-1 over the Red Sox, Marlins wiped out the Dodgers 11-4, Mariners topped the Reds 8-4, Nats over the Mets 3-2, those are all finals. And a couple of quick stories, big deal, here's a good one, Donald Trump set to attend Iowa Iowa State game on Saturday, what do we call that Rick? The great state of Iowa, here he comes, Warner Todd Houston and Breitbart reporting, former President Donald Trump plans to attend the Iowa rivalry game between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones in Ames, Iowa on Saturday according to reports. Iowa Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver, a former Cyclones player, welcomed Trump to the state and the game, tens of thousands of Iowans will gather the tailgate and cheer on their favorite team, Whitver said in a statement according to Fox News, I'm proud to have President Trump witness the greatest rivalry in college sports, he refers to him as the president like we do. 3-30, Iowa's favored by four on the road at Iowa State.I don't know that. Both teams are 1-0. The Hawkeye, they always screw me up, when I bet them they lose, when I bet against them they beat me, I can't figure that team out. I got to look closely at that one but I'm going to bet on that game. So Trump's former acting attorney, Matt Whitaker, a former Hawkeyes player, also welcomed Trump's visit, oh we got players on both sides, big deal, we're thrilled to invite Donald Trump to the Iowa versus Iowa State football game this weekend, Whitaker said adding President Trump attended this game in 2015 and remembers the incredible passion and electricity of the fans, I don't doubt it'll be the same. The rivals come to the game after winning their state games, the Iowa Hawkeyes took down Utah State, that was a good win, 24-14, and the Cyclones beat Northern Iowa Panthers 30-9, the game has been a draw for politicians over the years, Trump attended in 2015 for instance, but the same year fellow Republicans Rand Paul and Marco Rubio also attended. The game will be Trump's second time to Iowa in the last few weeks so he knows he's got to get some work done in Iowa, big deal, after briefly swinging through the Iowa State Fair in August, that was reported on. Just one more story, big deal, this is right out of the school of Rick Delgado, Aaron Rodgers details UFO sighting, this is Larry Brown Sports, Steve Del Vecchio reporting, Aaron Rodgers will undoubtedly have some new experiences in his first season with the New York Jets, you talk about a UFO, that team might be delusional, we'll see, but it is the state to say none will be unsettling as the one he claims he had at a former teammate's house nearly two decades ago. The season finale of HBO's Hard Knocks, which by the way has been fabulous, aired on Wednesday night and it included an interview with Rodgers in which the quarterback shared a story about a surreal UFO experience he had in 2005. Rodgers was reminded of the story when he asked the Jets security staffer to grant his former Cal teammate Steve Levy access to the practice field. Rodgers explained to Hard Knocks crew how he was at Levy's house in New Jersey at about the same time of 2005 NFL Draft when the two witnessed a UFO.

"Dominion is sought to put parts of Romo on the witness stand. She was one of the most prominent Fox personalities fueling Trump's unsubstantiated claims about the election, even after a forced fact check on the conspiracy theory she gave air to bartiromo has continued to promote election denialism. Gee, you would have thought they were talking about Jamie Raskin in 2016. Or dozens of Democrats in 2016, I wonder what the judge would think about that. I wonder if the judges aware that NBC News raised questions about voting machines. As did many cyber experts, and the connection to the Internet, I didn't raise these questions. They did. I wonder if he's aware of letters that went out under the signatures of Elizabeth Warren and Ron wyden and I did all this research today for my Sunday show on Fox. So you'll want to see it. Maybe I'm telling too much right now. Let's wait. Even though I know, I know the enemy meteor hanging on my every syllable. Because the corrupt Democrat party media and those funded by Democrat donors. Like media matters and media and the others, they desperately. Desperately want this case to be won by. By the plaintiff, they don't care about free speech or freedom of the press. And whispering like Biden does. Oh, you're not going to want to whisk my Sunday show. I got Dershowitz for half the show. I've got the former acting attorney general of the United States. Matt Whitaker. I think you're going to love the show. Back to Mike McCormick. Former Obama stenographer. Former Obama stenographer. Hello, former Obama stenographer. He's on Fox and Friends today. And he's talking about April, 2014, Biden rich barisma and his own family. Go ahead. In April, 2014, I was an air force two. With Joe Biden and Jake Sullivan. At the time, no one knew that Hunter Biden was already on the board of burisma holdings. The natural gas conglomerate from Ukraine. Joe Biden is directing Jake Sullivan in the front of the plane what to say to the press. My job as a stenographer on the plane is to record what the vice president or a senior administration official says to the press. So I'm sitting back there with the tape recorder. Jake Sullivan comes back and somebody asked him about fracking. His answer is, well, we're bringing a lot of American assistance over for fracking. For re smell was the direct beneficiary of that fracking. And that's what I recorded. And that's in a White House transcript. In the transcript, you don't know who Jake Sullivan is. It's a senior registration official. I'm the witness that says Jake Sullivan is the guy who said it. And he should be investigated because at the time, Hunter Biden was on the board of burisma and Joe Biden is bringing American taxpayer money to enrich that company and his self and his family. Got that? That's on the record. So over there at mediaite, I noticed you don't have it yet. Do they mister producer? Let's see here. No. How about media matters? They didn't pick up on it either. Is it in the front page of the New York slimes or the Washington compost? No. Censorship

"Flirting with extending the show to a fourth hour, particularly in New York. You never know. We're going to have great guests Sunday. In a very, very important topic. I'm going to have Alan Dershowitz on for half the show. And Matt Whitaker, from reacting attorney general for the other half of the show. We are going to discuss freedom of speech, we're going to discuss the First Amendment you know this dominion lawsuit goes forward next week. We may not get into the particulars of that case, but we will get into the particulars of corporations of government, of other efforts. To censor media, including Fox. So I'll take up the gauntlet. I'll take it up with additional free speech lawyers. Nobody better than Dershowitz sent me, of course. And then Matt Whitaker, former acting attorney general. And we're going to dig into this. New York versus Sullivan, what's that? You're going to hear all about it. So the left and their media, they don't believe in free speech. They don't believe in a free media. They claim they do, but they clearly don't. They are celebrating, promoting, and insisting. On the defeat of Fox News, the way they have on conservative talk radio. Most of these entities, like media matters, like media, are funded with big donors. With big pockets. And they don't make their donors known. I would encourage media matters put out your big donor list. Meteorite put out your big donor list. And by the way, mediaite is sort of a knockoff of media matters. If I were media matters, I'd be pissed off and I'd sue me tonight for plagiarism. That's what I would do. But they never would pull back the curtain. We don't get the text messages and the emails that a mediaite, and all the pre bubes that right there. We don't get the emails and the text messages from media matters. And all their communications with Democrats and leftists and sorrows operatives and all the rest. We don't get the text messages and emails of maggot haberman. are filling his bumps. We don't get any of that information. Isn't it amazing? And yet we have a judge in Delaware. Trial judge, the lowest level. Who gives out discovery like. Well, like Hunter Biden takes, I better not say that. But you get the point. Here is a local, lowest level trial judge. These are all my own opinions. I want to discuss them with anybody. Never do. Don't get permission, don't get to hold not to. I do what I want to do. Speak for myself. And so we're going to look into this sort of thing and talk about this sort of thing. Because there's no reason why I should sit quietly about this, no reason why I should ignore the war on the First Amendment. Now on Dershowitz has written a lot of books. Most of them are relatively small, but they're good. And he wrote a book a couple of years back called the case against the new censorship. I actually ordered this on Amazon and read it. It's damn good book. Protecting free speech from big tech, progressives, and universities. You can say what you will about Alan Dershowitz. He's a Democrat and so forth. But the fact is the man is consistent. If he believes somebody is violating a fundamental civil liberty, whether Republican Democrat to whomever it is, he calls them out. So I'm going to have my opening statement. We're going to have Alan Dershowitz there. We're going to talk about this sort of thing. We're going to have the former acting attorney general there too. We're going to talk about this sort of thing, and he knows all about it too. Because I don't think the entire playing field of knowledge and information. Should be left. To mediate and media matters. I don't think it should be left to The New York Times in The Washington Post. And their analysts. I don't think it should be left. To the cracked news network, that's what we're calling it for now on mister producer. Not the constipated. That's too good. The krat news network and of course MS LSD. Wouldn't it be great to get all the Texan emails mister producer? Between the morning schmo and the misses? Or I'll sharpen it anybody? Or how about joy Reid? Oh, I bet hers are a doozy. You see, you sue them. But you got to sue them in a place and in a court that's going to have very wide latitude on discovery. And then the lawyers can be filing all kinds of motions and briefs and put as much information in there as they can to try and embarrass people, you see. That's the goal. I'm going to talk about this. And should a network or news cast? Or a host? Or a program? Be able to talk about what's being said about an election. If not, then what are the parameters? If that's not an attack on free speech, then what the hell is? So we're going to get into this. It's going to be a really big show.

"Well, and I think it's perception, Jay, and I think that's one of the things. And I was a ranking on judiciary, you were in there, of course, your first, I guess, attorney general would have been your own home state, Jeff Sessions would have been your first in general. Then came Matt Whitaker after that and of course Bill Barr, I got to know a new sessions from being in Congress. I mean, we went back and forth out of that majority. Didn't know him that well. Got to know Matt Whitaker and have gotten to know Matt Whitaker even better. He was actually part of my book that I wrote about the impeachment process. Because I remember when he was still acting attorney general, he and I had to make before he had to come to Congress. And then Bill Barr, we got to have a pretty good relationship. It all brings their own flavor. And I think that's the interesting thing. Very different individuals, all three of them. Yeah, very different. Bill Barr and Jeff Sessions are apples and dump trucks. They're not even apples and oranges, right? I mean, they're very different personalities in the way of their leadership styles very different. Yeah. I could imagine working under them because sitting there and looking at it. I mean, when I first sat down with Bill Barr, one of the more and more interesting stories I ever had was a walked in to see Whitaker. Matt Whitaker, and we went into and of course, and if you've been there, if you've not been there, when you go to the attorney general's office, there is a reception area, and then there's this big conference room, and then depending on the attorney general, most of them have their office on the corner. My understanding was in the history and all goes Robert Kennedy had his office in that big conference room. He liked the fireplace. Yeah, there's a nice place. Huge place. But what was funny? I walked in that room and Whitaker is there and he's a big boy by the way. He is a big man. He's a tight end at the university of Iowa, right? Oh my God. I wrote about it. I was afraid the chair was going to crack. I mean, he's leaning back and I'm like, I'm like, oh my God, this is going to be wild. But on the wall, I mean, was the picture Bill Barr. I mean, because he had been a previous attorney general, is there and just to sit and talk to Bill Barr was like, across between talking to your dad, an attorney, and the school principal. It was like, you wasn't sure what you were going to get from it, but it was. You just nailed it. Well, if it was 10 a.m. or 2 p.m., there was sort of a different flavor of the bill you were getting, right? And look, all three are very different. Jeff Sessions had a sort of soft southern style to him, Matt Whitaker is a good friend of mine. I was actually with him last week, and he was, you know, he was in a room he was acting for a few months. And did his level best, but general Barr, Bill was, you know, look, he came in at a very awkward time to come in as the attorney general. You have these investigations into the president of the United States, the Mueller investigation being the most prominent. And then, you know, you fast forward, I think maybe less than a year, and then COVID hits, and then you have that summer of unrest. You have the Derek Chauvin, George Floyd, incident, which caused more unrest around the country. And then you have a lot of election issues that were very complicated and he left before January 6th, but that was also a part of Jeff Rosen when he was the acting attorney general after Bill. You know, we used to sort of quip that sleepy little Department of Justice. You know, nothing ever going on. It was, and I'll say this, Doug, it's important that when you're out in the field as a United States attorney and you're running an office of a 150 people, you got 60 assistant U.S. attorneys as the U.S. attorney you're in charge of all the prosecutor investigative agencies so the FBI DEA ATF, Secret Service Marshals. And HSI and when you have the chaos in Washington D.C., which might as well be half a block down the road when you have that type of chaos. It does impact all of the 93 U.S. attorneys in the 94 U.S. attorney's offices. You know, what we learned from the Mueller investigation is, you know, you would take an FBI agent, let's say, into a grand jury, ten years ago, and there might be two questions, right? And they were good questions. And then you do that in 2019. And now there's 30 questions and most of them are really not legitimate questions about the case. They're about bias or they're about, well, how do you even find out about this bad guy, right? I mean, what was the process that allowed you to learn about that, right? So, you know, the Fourth Amendment stuff, or if it was a fisa, if it was some sort of material support case of a foreign terrorist organization. And so you started getting all these sort of, I mean, you know, you still get through the grand jury, but then you wonder about the 12 jurors, right? Are they trusting law enforcement as much? Are they trusting the investigation and that the fourth 5th and 6th amendments have all been, you know, sustainable or with upheld throughout the process. They had, but the chaos and Washington certainly, and I know we're going to talk about the Trump indictment, but the whittling away at the trusting confidence in our justice system and our investigatory process, right or wrong. Some of it's some of its legitimate, but I think it should be directed at the individuals rather than the entire agency. But it does have an impact on our cases, has an impact on our trials. And maybe for some U.S. attorneys, it even had an impact on the cases they decided not to bring..

"Rich valdes America at night dot com. Now I want to talk about the news of the day. Today, former president Trump arrived in east Palestine, Ohio, and he said a couple of things. We have a couple of clips of that audio, listen to this. I sincerely hope that when you're representatives and all of the politicians get here, including Biden, they get back from during Ukraine that he's got some money left over. Now, of course, president Trump didn't leave it there. He took a couple of shots at Biden and I think rightfully so when you see the videos of the crowd cheering him on and it's just an interesting juxtaposition where Trump says I will be in east Palestine on Wednesday and all of a sudden the entire the entirety of the federal government tries to make a move to get there on Tuesday, while of course on Monday, President Biden was touring another place that had nothing to do with the United States. He was in Ukraine with president zelensky. So Trump continued letting people know that he brought some supplies for the people of east Palestinian. We're bringing thousands of bottle of water Trump water, actually. Most of it, some of it, we had to go to a much lesser quality water. You want to get those Trump bottles, I think, more than anybody else, but we're bringing a lot of water thousands of bottles, and we have an intro, so we brought some of my plane. And he continued with the people letting them know that the Biden administration has totally failed the people that are suffering after the train derailment in Ohio. Unfortunately, as you know, in too many cases, your goodness and perseverance were met with indifference and betrayal in some cases. Biden and fema said they would not send federal aid to east Palestinian under any circumstance, so not going to send 8. I thought that was a strange statement because I've been working with fema for a long time four years and they were great with us with the tornadoes, the hurricanes and things like this. Now speaking of Trump, I want to stay on this theme of Trump, but I want to expand to what we were talking about yesterday a little bit with a former attorney general Matt Whitaker. And I had asked him, are we going to see indictments coming from Georgia and what the potentiality for them actually mattering is because, you know, we know a lot of this stuff is just politically motivated. And there was some discussion. And if you missed that, check out the podcast, but the jury foreperson, Emily kors, she had an interview with CNN and you have to listen to how excited she gets. And in her words, how awesome it would be to put Trump under oath, listen to this. Did you personally want to hear from the former? I wanted to hear from the former president, but honestly, I

"America at night with rich valdes. All right, welcome back We're on with attorney general Matt Whitaker. He was with the Trump administration and my question with respect to this case here is what is going on with section two 30 of the communications decency act where there's been this fundamental publisher versus platform debate and now there's a case before the Supreme Court. What can you tell us about it general? Yeah, well, the Supreme Court hearing was today and the Supreme Court is trying to decide the plans to sue Google for videos that are posted on YouTube that ultimately radicalize and led to the death of their son and it's a tragic case and section two 30 protects online companies from things that are posted on their platforms and I think it's a lot of it has been probably stretched beyond what Congress intended section two 30 to cover, but the surprising thing in an ever connected digital world you listen to today's arguments was how the 9th Supreme Court Justices don't understand how the Internet works. They seem completely confused on the whole idea and the concept of how the Internet works, how users can post content and all that things that our generation rich understands, they can inherently and I think that's and they really seem very skeptical of dipping their toe into trying to change the current regulatory and legal structure of section two 30 and believe. And again, we have a separation of the power for a reason. The Supreme Court in the courts can not always change everything even if it's bad law as long as it's constitutionally passed. And so obviously section two 30, the whole intent is it protection for free speech because if you make the platforms like YouTube, for example, liable. And again, I'm not an apologist for YouTube. But if you make them liable for content, you're going to have a lot more content moderation going on and probably less free speech. So it's a balance. It's a balance probably better done by Congress than the courts, but at the same time, I think they've used the platforms like especially Twitter, Facebook and others. Have used it as a sword and a shield at the same time for taking deep platforming people on the one hand and at the same time putting up, for example, the Ayatollah of Iran and having their content available to the world. So we'll see, I don't think this I don't think the court is going to throw it out overturned or finding a constitutional. So I think it's still probably best modified in remedied probably by Congress, although you and I'm sure your listeners have as little faith in Congress. And I do currently. Right. And just to zero in on this, I agree with what you're saying. And I think I'm just curious the Biden administration is really in support of the family that's part of the case. The Gonzalez family where they're saying that Google lacks immunity under section two 30. Isn't that the same argument that others are making? Yeah, I mean, again, I think the Biden administration did come out and has been supportive of the family. I mean, obviously, radicalized radicalization in the religious fanaticism is an area that certainly you don't want everyone exposed to that. Especially the violent extremist wing of radical Islam because ultimately it does lead to death of destruction. And so I mean, I think there is there has to be a line somewhere where they can't turn a blind eye. But right now, I think section two 30 is viewed as an absolute immunity with no exceptions. I think we may get to that area of I can't yell fire in a crowded theater. It's kind of the bounds of free speech in the First Amendment. I think we may get to that somewhere in this section two 30 discussion, but I don't know, I'm not sure that these justices are in a position to help clarify the question based on how the hearing loss. And you think that's a matter of political will. No, I think it's a matter of not understanding how technology works. Yeah, I think it's not understanding the intersection of freedom of speech together with how technology works and who whose role it is in these areas. Right. That's an interesting place to be. Because then we're screwed. On every case. Go to the Supreme Court. That's why it's Supreme Court takes tough cases. And again, if Congress would do its job as well, they could help remedy some of these inequities as well and make sure that those putting violent extremist content on the Internet also had some liability or could not post it in the first place. If that's what they're trying to regulate. But again, the First Amendment is fairly broad as we've talked about before. Right. Yeah, I think it's a fascinating case. You have this family saying that, you know, because of Google, our daughter is dead from ISIS terrorists, and Google is saying, well, these people have a right to say whatever they want. You know, we're just a search engine. And they're saying, well, no, you're not just a search engine. You're participating in this in one way or another because you didn't take it down. You didn't mind it. It's just such an interesting web of events. Now, I want to quickly pivot to the work that you're doing. I know that you're very busy you're doing a lot of work with the America first policy institute. Is that you're still there? Yep, I'm still working at FBI and really having a good time around co chair of the center for law and justice. Working a lot on policies and support the men and women of law enforcement, you're seeing the radical left policies play out in places like Austin, Texas where you have this completely out of control street racing situation. Over the weekend and that's because they try to defund their police by a third and they lost a bunch of people. And they couldn't get recruits in. And so now they're under staffed underfunded and they're under attack maintaining. Maintaining Law & Order is very difficult in those types of jurisdictions. I saw the video at least a video of a cop retreating and retreating and retreating to a mob. I don't know, 40, 50 people that were coming after him. And it was scary. I was thinking if there was another mob behind him, he wasn't going to have many choices, but hitting the gas. And then we're fighting against those policies rich. So yeah, that's exactly what we're doing at FBI. Again, we're just one of the main policies centers that are very first policy. I enjoy that work a lot. And we'll keep up the good work. I hope to see at cpac if you're going to be there and God speed and everything you're doing. Excellent. Looking forward to it. Ladies and gentlemen, attorney general Matthew Whitaker, a FPI, and all around great guy. Thank you, sir, for joining us tonight. All right, take care. You bet. All right, more to come straight ahead. We're going to get to your calls and more. Don't move a muscle. I'm Rachel desk

"Miss a little, miss a lot on WGN. Well, thank you, rich and thank you for everything. I know you very well and I have, I listen, but I have a lot of people that listen and they love your show and I appreciate it. Very much. America at night with rich valdes. All right, America welcome back, rich Valdez a three three four 8 two 53 37 a three three the number four Valdez and that's valdes with an S, just like on social media, Valdez with an S if you want to chime in either way. We're on with a former attorney general of the United States Matthew Whitaker and you can find him at Matt Whitaker 46 on Twitter and his website is Whitaker TV. Now, general, let's pivot here a little bit. I'd like to go to what is we're talking about pardons and that were issued by president Trump. What is the story with Georgia? I see not a lot of reporting, but there's a little bit of reporting saying that there is a jury that's recommending indictments and I didn't know juries made any recommendations. I thought they just said guilty or not guilty. So this is a special grand jury that had been assembled and they issued a secret report that a magistrate judge in state court in Georgia has kept under seal for large parts. He's released a little bit one of the sections that really doesn't give us much information. Just I think yesterday, the four person of that special grand jury spoke to, I think, The New York Times or some other big media outlet. And just kind of the same drum beat, right? And diamonds are coming. We recommended a bunch of indictments on a bunch of people and et cetera, et cetera. But we don't know what exactly is behind the curtain. And I think that's part of what they love. It's a little bit like the January 6th committee or any of these other things where kind of like an Adam, anything of Adam Schiff's involved in. Claims of the blockbuster big deals that never seem to come to fruition, but we're going to, I think, the county prosecutor of Fulton county, I believe it is. It is reviewing as who to bring charges based on what that grand jury, a special grand jury was able to figure out and we'll see, I guess it's one of those things. I think it's good sometimes that investigations are done not in the public eye because it's obviously if charges are someone you wouldn't want that, but they were under investigation. I think that is a will be a large abuse of power. It's one of my biggest complaints of the special counsel regulation is the only place where we name the targets of investigations publicly. And so in this case, I think we're just going to have to wait a little longer to see if this county prosecutor in Georgia has the temerity or the strength to try to bring charges against people up to and including, I guess, president Trump, although I can not imagine I haven't seen the report nobody yet. I can not imagine what's facts and circumstances they're trying to cobble together, bring charges against him. But this thing's any more of these things don't amaze me, rich, unfortunately. Now, would you have any sense of what type of charges they'd be trying to file? Because he called raffensperger because he said things needed to be recounted. I'm just trying to figure out what on earth would they try to charge him with? I'm guessing it would be, again, I don't know, but it would be some form of a conspiracy or an interference with an official act or some something like that. And again, I'm not a Georgia lawyer. I don't know George of law, but I'm guessing it would be some sort of an interference. This sounds reminiscent to what they did with the New York City prosecutor's office with Rudy Giuliani, which amounted to a whole lot of nothing as well. Exactly. No, and this is the thing. And I think the biggest fear I have, rich, and all of these cases and I know I would say this if the shoe was on the other foot as well, we are really moving to a place where we're criminalizing protected constitutional speech and the First Amendment is very broad. And especially in politics and politicians are given a broad latitude in the public discourse. And so I just, I want to make sure that these cases were solid and they're not just we don't like this person, we're in charge of the crime and we know we can get a good jury that will convict them. And that's what we're seeing now in Washington, D.C. and I think that's not an example well. So the future of the public where prosecutors can bring cases and friendly jurisdictions, knowing that while the case may not be strong, they can get a conviction. Yeah, it sounds Stalin esque is what it sounds horrible. Very, yeah. Horrible. Absolutely. I want to continue our conversation with attorney general Matthew Whitaker, check out his website, by the way, Whitaker TV, and I want to take a quick break right here so we could set up the next question that I have for you, which is going to be with respect to the Supreme Court and section two 30. Do they have a chance to make a change? Do they not? Don't go anywhere. We've got Matt Whitaker and me, rich Valdez
"matt whitaker" Discussed on Keep It!
"Tell us about this decision that you've made to write it in this way but the other thing that one everything was move on rose which is definitely a show that is on broadway. Currently i saw moulin rouge with our mutual fried matt whitaker. This is one of those things about being like a fan of broadway and like actors knowing everything that they put on the fucking stage eight performances a week right like you cannot deny that everyone is putting their heart into all of their work in like a show that sure but i don't think it's a i mean honestly time it's described to me the amount of songs that are like sandblasted into this show. Here's firework by the way i can buy now. That's what i call music for on my own time. I don't need to like go pay. But like i do have to say the suspense of whether or not erin today. What actually walk away with the aboard. When they could have feasibly nominated him he was the only nominee and then not giving him the award based on the sixty percent of votes. You need to actually claim the award which those stressful and yet then when he won. I was like wait. This is so boring so anyway it was like he was in a vice. That's about these. Awards is to sort of like i do think that the todi voted bodies should be shake it up because of like move on for be felt so vegas is specifically engineered for towards broadway and like yes you need a show like that to keep broadway charting the coins but all you had so many speeches with people all night. Big like imploring broadway to like do something that represents anybody else Just to see like every fucking award like in the musical category like to go to moulin rouge is a sort of like you're not even trying Are you you're not. it's though so lazy. Yeah i think. I mean just what you mentioned earlier idea that the nominating bodies so much more diverse than the people who actually get to vote on. What is such a fascinating duality. I have questions about that. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me but moulin rouge is going to be a rom. I do plan on seeing. And i'm going to have a good time and you will get thousands of pop songs that i think are still like do. Do they change out songs and bring them in like his intimate singing. Good for you yet. I'm sure they'll do a fresh update you know and then also I don't know i didn't see a christmas carol. So that kept cleaning up and of course our friend. Diablo cody one for the book for jagged. Little yeah you know what remains jarring to me about that musical because we got to see a performance from jacob on the main telecast is that for me the power of jagged little pill that every song is so like. It's not just an angry album. It really is this gamut of emotions. There's some like songs about gratefulness or romance or obviously ironic is its own category of song and yet they all belong to one woman like really feel like one person showing you as many sides of their personalities they can and then when you watch the show and again i've not seen the show so this is not me judging the show again my friend fucking wrote the show. I'm not here to do the show. It's weird because they give the songs to everybody and that's also like the point of like american idiot and stuff too but it's it's interesting. What's left of the album's appeal when you're not just hearing them all from one voice. Do i still like it as much. I can't really tell you know Yes it's not that. Carole king musical okay right carols like i wrote. 'this will be thinking up a whole different experience though which is like like what i like about that concept is that i feel like. They just leaned into the idea that this is going to be completely different from the album. It's going to be completely different from a listener and it speaks that whole idea. That all of this is relatable rate. Which i think for br and broadway camp abounds like just leaning all the way in abounds and so it's like oh it's a very different experience. We might get more. We might get last. There's something for everyone in that anything. There's something really nathan exciting about that. So i was kind of happy to just hear. That was still around in doing well. I had heard about it a few years ago. I a new. It's exciting to me. It's an exciting show. I love the concept of like a classic. Ninety s album is like now repurpose as a classic broadway cast recording that leg. A different generation of like gays zubaydah been listening to like the in the nineties. Maybe they're listening to this We're theater kids And that's exciting for me like you mentioned american idiot. You know. there's so many things like that you know it's like they are now also like a broadway october. You can hear it is this right. Yeah something that. I think was fascinating though in the main. Cbs telecaster we watched basically every living broadway legend. Give a performance of one kind or another. The beginning of it was dominated by shows and performances. That our old pop songs repurpose for broadway audiences. So like you had david byrne doing burning down the house. The famous talking heads song Moulin rouge lady marmalade performed. And i have to say it to me was not a glistening advertisement for what broadway is now just because it does feel like. You're listening to your old ipod a lot of the time. Yeah i get it and like david bird is like jesus fucking love him. Yeah yeah but it really does. That's part of my problem with milan. Route you know. I feel like the theater. We grew up. A you know you're hearing original compositions and songs and lyrics from like creators..

I think the thing that the more time I spent around him I didn't fully appreciate how he devour. With with with whatever is presented to him without, you know, kind of facts. I decided that's just completely false. So what? I saw somebody that you know, let me just stacks of newspaper stacks of briefing papers and just devoured it. And like, you know, and really the The challenges that he faced. I mean, he were reversed them into energy like he ate it like an energy bar was just okay. Crucial crucial point, so I first met him some of 2015. I was invited to Trump Tower. He had the GOP national security Bates that fallen.

I was part of the change in the hope and change of Obama on and then I was, you know, eyes practicing law and doing sort of, you know local politics statewide politics in Iowa, and it was Had never planned to come to Washington, D. C. Never expected to You're part of the swamp or ever live and work here. But so you come back to the swamp for the Trump Administration. What were your expectations? Coming back to the O. J. Well, to some extent for you know, I didn't get here till October of 17. So I watched the first Guess, nine months on TV, And you know when I was in the White House, Well, right. I saw you on saw you on many, many, many times, but I also know it was distorted. It was a distorted view. You know, the view was chaos. It was. You know, Bannon vs Ryan. Yes. Sebastian River Palace intrigue. So I mean, I didn't know I interviewed For chief of staff. And then I also the first considering me for the role that Ty Cobb took. And and, you know, I mean, I So I met with rights and Steve and And the White House counsel's office and it seemed like everybody was, you know. Professional. So you're going to come into the White House? That was the first discussion. Yeah, And then ultimately, they president decided that I would have liked that. That would be cool to have you as a colleague. It's not not God's plan for my life, and that's fine. I'm I think I was understood. DOJ had been there a Z U s attorney, and so it was. It was a department that I that I love And it's a department that I understood how it operated. My impression. I spoke to a G sessions a couple of times when he came to the White House my impression and disabuse me of this If I'm wrong, because I didn't work in theater I worked in the White House had spent 5.5 years in the D O D before that. Mm hmm. The Obama administration is one of the most corrupt administrations in modern American history off they corrupted everything from lowest Lana at the I, R. S all the way to the park service that was used to barricade. National monuments to trigger government shutdown, Sir veterans couldn't pay respect to their fallen brethren. But of all the corruption. It was my impression of the former deputy assistant to the president that the most corrupt department in U. S government. Was the DOJ my far off the mark. Matt Whitaker. So the challenge is I'm looking at the elephant from one direction and I don't have any comparison. I have not been a d O d. I have I have minute the White House. I have learned how correct Yes. How corrupt was the DOJ that you arrived at? How was the play? Mrs Lincoln s 00. I think you know. Listen, I have three. You know of the primary actors in the in the What I call the Russian collusion fable on that is, you know Comey, McCabe and struck but there are several others. But the problem and one of the themes in this book that I try to get to is is that there There, you know, actions and and the shame they brought on the Department of Justice was. There are many people, including myself, and many great people at the department, Justice, FBI, DEA, A T F U. S. Marshals Bureau, prisons and all the other pieces and parts of DOJ that quietly go about their business every day without controversy and trying to accomplish the agenda. Of the president. And so you know, I think it's important one. We celebrate those folks who who aren't the deep state who aren't trying to subvert the president of the United States and also hang a lantern on those that did and tell the story of because you used that language. Have you use that language. Subverting the president. The cover of your book man. I did, And I used that intentionally. I know people. You know, people throw around the term CU allow these other terms. But, you know, I think if you look at it, the purpose of the Russian collusion fable was there was never any evidence. The Mueller the mauler report tells us there was no evidence of a connection. The hip see the House intelligence. Committee thousands of pages of declassified transcripts every single actor in the Obama administration that was interviewed from national security Advisor Rice on down toe Evident Farkash show on MSNBC said. Oh, yes, we had to make sure the evidence of Russian collusion was spread far and wide before we left government. Every single sworn Statement. States. I saw nothing. I have.

Potential perjury today at DOJ spokesperson said he stands by his testimony and Trump is standing by him to very very straight shooter. I watched him during the hearing some of it.

The New York Times reports he has since wondered if Rosenstein was deliberately misleading him to keep him calm. The extensive report is also claiming Trump's told advisers and February twenty seventeen they should say he asked for Michael Flynn's resignation because quote that sounds better pressed by Sean Spicer, if it was true Trump reportedly.

Not something that an FBI director, not something that acting FBI director do by yourself, right? And that no one raised concern congress, and I told congress what we had done anyone object.
