"Podcasting right now the book laptop from hell by Miranda Devine flying off the shelves number one all over the place Miranda thanks for joining us again We really appreciate it Thanks Dan really nice to talk to you Yeah good to talk to you as well and congratulations on the book just a monster monster success I knew it would be when we had you on last time I said I thought it was the most important book of the year and I was not being hyperbolic about that So a couple things about the book and the Biden family and just the disturbing revelations in there You know Miranda my takeaway from the book is about Joe Biden himself who puts a guy like this Hunter Biden his son who he knows well it's his son obviously What kind of guy puts a kid like this Hunter Biden in this central position in these mega business deals with corporations and businesses all over the world knowing he's got this troubled history It's just it speaks to Joe Biden as much as it does to hunter's character You've absolutely nailed it Dan that's the overriding impression that I had was what kind of a father puts the sun with these addiction problems in front of gushing torrents of unaccountable cash And that's what he did at Hunter Biden is even admitted that in his memoir earlier this year beautiful things in which he talks about that money that came from burisma was like play money He said it was $83,333 a month And he didn't have to do anything for it and he said that really that was what led to him falling off the wagon and really indulging in his crack addiction And I think when tens of millions of dollars of ill gotten gains are coming into your bank accounts And you have an addiction problem What are you going to do And I mean it destroyed his marriage He had a really lovely wife and three quarters girls And he's like just unraveled from there on So and the other thing about burisma was that as soon as his father stepped down from being vice president was Margaret out obviously Hunter Biden's 83,000 plus salary from burisma went down to half that much It was cut in half Just crazy Yeah We're talking to Miranda the vine author of I'm telling you the most important book of the year It is a must read and that's putting mildly laptop from hell pick it up today laptop from hell about the Hunter Biden fiasco You know Miranda one of the things I also I find troubling with the book is the man obviously Hunter Biden had no requisite skills for the positions he was taking whether it was a burisma or a negotiations with China and some of these other companies and even some of these other business deals It was clear as day to anyone involved that this was an influence peddling operation which I think the book is as much a criticism of the media whether implied or intentional is it is if anything else because these facts were out there and you did yeoman's work putting it all in a book for everyone to see footnote in everything They were avoiding this story for a long time and candidly they still are This has been going on since the beginning of Joe Biden's career really I mean he's the center of the Delaware He won the election when he was 29 years old And from then on because Delaware is this unique state in America where so many corporations are headquartered there because of its tax laws but mainly the opacity of its corporations law He had really a lot of power in the corporate world and he was also very powerful positions on both the legislative affairs committee and the foreign affairs committee And he was faced by these corporations and these donors gave him lots of money and also other things such as grace and favor jobs for family members especially hunter And so Hunter Biden was given inflated salaries and from that money very early on straight out of college he was expected to pay bills for the rest of the family And so there were stories along the way and even The New York Times have stories I mean Byron York did some brilliant work which I thought in the book on Joe Biden sort of real estate purchases which were very dodgy back in the day MBNA which is a credit card company in Delaware board a house from him a lot higher than comparable houses nearby An executive of theirs And so there was there was quite a bit of reporting done not enough in my view But I think that influence peddling is a Washington disease It's just that Joe Biden was better than anyone else I think he's probably the most skilled practitioner of it Up until the time he became vice president in which case he just was in a class of his own because he internationalized that sort of Delaware centric influence peddling operation that he was running with his family This is his brothers and his son And he brought it to the parts of the world that Barack Obama had given him carriage for a particularly China Russia Ukraine All these places where he represented American power and prestige Joe Biden was sort of treated as a bit of a joke around Washington But when he flew into Ukraine on air force two he was a real power magnet He had a $1 billion worth of USA that he could hold over the head of the government of Ukraine which was desperate for money because they'd just been ripped off by the previous regime And so whatever he said would go And the power really went to his head And he became very blatant about exerting his influence and the famous photographs of had to fly into Beijing with his father President on air force two to meet president G and all the great and the good of the CCP That story was 9 And Peter Schweitzer a deep writer a great book about the bidens and the clintons and everyone else And he referenced that sort of influence peddling operation going on there But not many other people really followed through on that And there were reporters who went on that trip With Joe Biden and they didn't really make much of this story And during that trip Joe Biden went and had a secret meeting and shook hands with one of hunters new business partners men called Jonathan Lee who took him into a 10% ownership of a basically an investment fund that in 2019 had $2.5 billion worth of funds invested And that was basically Hunter Biden The president's son in partnership with the Chinese Communist Party because these gigantic banks and state owned enterprises They don't do business with anyone I mean this is a deal that Goldman Sachs would kill for Hunter Biden is near fight who's never really held out a proper job in his life And he's a crack addict So somehow seem to these connections And it sort of so obvious But I guess no one really had the receipts and the good thing about the laptop is that it actually has the receipts And when you combine what's on the laptop with the 12 of intonation that Tony bob linsky provided to us basically emails and documents and so on which cross match a lot of them with the documents on the laptop but also add more And then there's also another tour of documents with which Peter Switzer and Matthew time and got from Cooney who was one of a jailed former partner of Hunter Biden given archer And he's quite a grieved in jail feels that the others got away even though hunters not been implicated in this Indian tribal bonds ripple And so he provided all his information his emails and so on to those two journalists And Matthew kind enough to share some of that with me And then the other piece of the.

"And let their friends or their neighbors know about the value. Props that are that are available to them and you know we do right consumer marketing programs as well and we're getting now We're ready to enter the holiday season here. So i think you'll start to hear more about some of the stuff. We talked about earlier in terms of papers ubiquity our coverage and the fact that you'll pay pal is the one place to go to if you want to pay now or pay later okay and finally we were really talking about is you. And we discussed a fintech firm that has been in business for a long time to keep that fresh to keep innovation fresh you really need to have somewhat of a disruptor or a challenger mindset. You gotta keep that going. How does that happen to pay. How'd you keep the challenger mindset in place organizationally so that you're always viewed as the front provider in this face. Yeah that's a really great question and you certainly can not get good place it because the competition is coming there here. It's here every day. We're very cognizant of it. I i like to remind people i often will. We'll talk about internally. Yeah we have multiple credit. Bronx pay pal. Bill me later still exists. We just changed the brand. It's out credit. It's a really big business for paper. and having spent some time at a bank what tends to happen is it's like oh i don't know if i wanna watch new product because it's gonna quote cannibalize my other products and you know the reality is. It's already being cannibalized. The question the you really should ask is like do. I want to cannibalize my own products or i want somebody else to so if you if you if you have an inside out view you kind of get. It's of a false guide because you're looking at your own impact to your own products when in reality if you have it outside in view you have a customer centric view. If you sit still someone's going to someone is going to cannibalize your product. I like the bank and we do a good job of this. We'd rather quote unquote cannibalize our products and watch the competition breath. So you really have to live in a state of constant press paranoia too strong a word but you just can't you can't sit still sitting still going backwards because competitions dot sitting still and you have to. You have to stay current. Yeah that's really leadership and culture issue though. And i think you know you've been in legacy financial institution not gonna. Mbna was by no means a what i'm gonna call normal financial institution they were. They were fintech before fintech was even a word but the reality is that's the difference between the legacy bank environment medicare. It's not all and the fintech spaces. That can the leadership and culture of i've to reinvent what i do serving my customers putting. It's the difference between customer centric and customer obsessed and even when you look at some of the recent communications out there around making a so pay pal becomes a platform. People continually want to access. You know. i'm getting to the point. Where i'm figuring that loyalty overall is. How often am. I going to access a specific app. And i'll tell you. I'm a i'm a a major user pay pal from my business both on the income and an outflow basis and i probably look my my pay pal count daily for one reason and another to to look at what's happened to look at the payments but also to see what we are doing from a business standpoint so you know interesting perspective on on the challenger mindset so greg. Finally if somebody's interested not that it's hard to find pay in marketplace or online but if somebody's interested in the the pay later scenario and and the different solutions you have how they find out generically. Obviously they could certainly start. Ed cobb and just look at our failure solutions for your audience.

"That absolutely helps drive conversion since you talk about the history of pay pal. I referenced paypal this week as a legacy fintech which is really interesting that we actually are talking about. You know we're not we're not talking about. Mbna here but we're talking about lacey fintech and pay pals really that it's a it's a big organization but it's also one of the first fintech organizations that most of the new now buy now pay later has seen incredible growth of the last eighteen months a lot of it outside. The normal realm of we would considered our payment providers. Why and how was this come from. We're we're growth happened and why so quickly. It's a really great question and it's a it's it's a great term. I might borrow that from you in the future legacy fintech and i i jump from bank to fintech you mentioned. Nba two thousand six. That's fifteen years ago and an big al's older than that yet You know fintech wasn't really a category norris. Buy now pay later. But what's given the rise in this. Last eighteen twenty four thirty six months. It had been building right so coming out of two thousand eight. Recession lending was one of the few industries that were slower to get back on their feet from fintech lending perspective. It really started in the beat. Abi space than it went beat a on consolidation is lending club prosper etc up and then it was twenty thirteen. Twenty fourteen twenty fifteen where a lot of the companies that are now sort of common name started to develop new products and bring them to market a big firm after paying australia. They didn't come to the us to the last couple of years My own company push pay on that pay pal. Was there the whole time. But if focused on growing core its core distribution and yet it was late eighteenth early nineteen clark. It would be another year. We're tracking started to build gen z. And start to drive this affinity for this newer type of solution and the growth curves. Were pretty good if you track it in eighteen. Nineteen they were they were decent. But then you last march and april twenty twenty. Yeah everyone's world changed with the pandemic and in those early days. If you remember in banking it was sort of like oh no. This is the next cycle. Everyone thought two thousand eight was a cycle that they'll never see again. This was completely different. Was a psycho inside of a pandemic that you kept people at home. Force them to shop online. Not on my shopping wasn't a thing but it accelerated rate. Mckinsey talked about ten years of adoption happening in the span of a few months And it brought great uncertainty. Was i going to be able to leave my house tomorrow. They're going to have a job. If i have a job. Who am i going to get paid. oh my gosh. I better manage my cash flow at the same time when distribution of new pay solutions were just sitting there stride on product pages in earlier in that funnel and it is this sort of industry momentum with the pandemic was just You know a real once once in a lifetime type inflection point where really strong growth rates became astronomical growth rates You know we just drove to to really mainstreaming of the solution. It's basically table stakes now for a retailer to have a more modern by now later solution certainly online and i think the line is becoming more and more important And it's always been important at the big boxes. I'm talking about like the regional and give varieties type retailers and. I think that's really it. I think the last eighteen months or whatever the math is on the pandemic really just ignited a industry. Buy now pay later. There was already growing It just bent the curve even more than the likes of which you none of us have ever seen before and hopefully we never see it again for this reason anyway. Well just in too because it made us. We couldn't define exactly the Marcus i talked about the people that forego their mortgage payments in some cases they forgo their mortgage payment because they could make their mortgage payments and feed themselves the same time in the other cases. People were forgoing. The morris pays 'cause they were allowed to defer without an interest impact and build up savings account so in the same way by now. Pay later if you really wanted to. Tv or you need to replace your washer and dryer. This gave me the ability to take risk out of the equation. Say i can buy it. I have the money. But i can buy it without a negative impact financially at the same time i can. I can benefit. What if you heard from companies that are actually using pay later solutions. Yeah i mean. It's pretty consisted. It's were attracting new customers. And it sort of splits right. The early adopters will like. Wow this is tracking new customers It's helping me drive conversion I'm getting really positive feedback in terms of like Experience and loyalty And more recently. It's been a while everyone. Hasn't i better get in the game right. i better i better offer it. So there's a of. There's a bit of a photo type experience where it's like wait a second now. Suddenly my competitors set has it. I need it in vertically. It's like well what's fashion doing over there. You see it spreading to beauty and automotive and other categories as well so so mostly it's been positive it's it's high end. Truly getting conversion. I'm getting new. Customers are not taking on any more risk and with competition you know. Pricing is pricing is being lowered as well. If you're merchant we also see this situation of speed innovation. The the difference between a fast follower an a mainstream in a laggard has really shrunk. You have to be pretty on top of your game all the time with regard to certainly in the payment world in the payment innovation space that it continues to change at such a pace that you know merchants and consumers every bales really stand top and these things don't they. Yeah that's exactly right. The the basic changes fast. And if you're a merchant the great thing is it's never been easier take advantage of many of these tools particularly with the rise of platforms you really think about the medium and smaller businesses now. There's not large capital investments required to add extra features to your sort of infrastructure that you know in in the past would have required to be pretty capital intensive is now you can just like customers in scripture lifestyle and the business side with the move to sass platforms. You can rent feature functionality etc. And it's really naturally democratize because companies like paypal and others big congresses. The magenta is congress's the world making it available. So small main street retailers can compete with the big box competitors at the at the end of the walk so great you look at paypal. A big brand. But you don't see a whole lot of marketing for pay pal in the marketplace. It you see it in the the icons in the logos and all that is this partially. Because you're really taking the engagement in experiences and stay so on top of the marketplace as far as how those Eappen that word of mouth becomes your primary marketing that really. The experience drives marketing of papal. Yeah i'll a product centric person. Jim so i. I'm always a believer in great product. Experiences ultimately win that said you have to let the world know about it and give it net. We are We have such broad adoption in the ecommerce space that we have such strong volumes from a from a Ecommerce flow perspective. We really do bring power of our double sided network to play here so while we're while we're constantly partnering with merchants and talking to how about help them increase their conversion in their sales and we do spend quite a significant amount of resources there were able to add this feature to our wall it we were seeing millions and millions of transactions and effort drive adoption in consumers can turn around.

"Of its emotional resonance but people with ptsd. Their cortisol levels remain elevated. While they sleep. So as they relive this trauma it never removes the emotional impact. And so that's where you get into things like mda therapy and psychedelic therapy. Where you're able to completely re contextualised that memory in a totally different neurological stay pretty fascinating so so that you will in turn feel differently emotionally so taking that pain away. Yes squandering you. One thing you talk about the book that i think is particularly relevant. Mbna treatment is so the idea with A lot of the things you talk about the book or you know. Hey i would be at home. And i would get these panic attacks if i went out which is weird because like my mom is part of the problem and but yet being away from her it was all i knew i'd get panicky but then when i was living in a house with people that made me feel safe. I didn't have any of those problems and part of the hypothesis around. Mba may treatment is that you're calling forth a traumatic memory. While you're awash and serotonin because basically serotonin which makes you feel good and safe. And everything's okay. Love connection all of that causes these massive spikes and serotonin so you relive this traumatic memory in this connected loving sort of whole neurochemical state and because of the way memory storage works. You're now putting it back into long term memory with this news. Sort of feeling of wholeness and safety and all of this which is absolutely fascinating and gets into my obsession with your story and this idea of reconstruct ourselves somewhat our environment constructs us our genetics concerns right. Were not born blank slates. We aren't just the product of our environment and there's this third element around storytelling. Those don't know like your it's other people need to read the fucking book so first of all you don't you don't do anything to make yourself sound cool. So in the end you're able to as the reader look back on what you've accomplished. You just feel like goddamn like even stripping all the bravado away from it. it's amazing so one you've obviously got to come up as a rapper. But you're a number one new york times bestselling author of a fucking novel. You've sold out madison square garden platinum selling artists. I mean it's really it's really pretty extrordinary and to me the whole time you've been playing with the sense of who am i. How do i present myself to the world. How do i present myself to myself. And now in the memoir in the way that you wrap everything up and presented. It's it's really pretty breathtaking in terms of your ability to say it from a place of forgiveness Well god damn. I never thought of myself that way. It's just really weird. I never thought like oh yeah platinum selling ours master square guard. And you know i just. I never thought about that. And i also think a big part of that which i do discuss in. The book is the fact that no matter what i do. It's always never good enough in the eyes of not necessarily just hip hop but entertainment in general. You know what i mean. It's not good enough. You're gonna okay you got you know you got a couple of followers on twitter. Bud you can't do a show and then you do a show okay. Yeah fifty people showed up but five hundred people issue in five hundred people show and then five thousand people and then twenty five thousand people and then it's like okay. Yeah but you ain't. You ain't got no album okay. But the album platnum okay and then that starts to ingrain into your head and it's not just the just music i mean it's life right. It's like okay. You have no high school diploma and then you get high school. Yeah but you didn't go to college and you go to causing. Yeah but you don't have your masters and you get your masters and then before you know you're fucking like eighty years old and you didn't live your life. You know what i mean and i think I think i'm really lucky to have discovered that at a young age you know because thirty one is young But i my life is a lot just slower. Now because i've been able to look back while creating this book and realize that basically the goals i had as a young man and a musician and creative person were bullshit so like even though they were real. sorry. I keep cussing anyway Even okay fuck. Yeah so look even though they were real And they make sense. You know like okay. I wanna put out an album. I want to sell a certain amount my first week or do this or do that. It was just this hamster wheel. That never stopped And i think. I just feel like that's very unhealthy. I never once patted myself on. The back said good job. That's also because i was constantly being berated online and this was like the revolution of the internet came up in a place where like a year before. If you didn't have a record deal and what brittany spears and on mtv like there's no way you were making it. And then it was me. And a few amazing people.

"An appointment right. An andy's point. I tell people the book that desperation is like worst smelling odor in the world. Any febreeze for that. Yes it propels people they see you coming. They smell you. And it's the opposite of being a confidence and confidence is literally not caring about the result. I don't care. And i was my attitude when i said fifteen appointments. I didn't care. But i cared enough yet to care little bit but not enough. Let's say it's a mixture of of emotions have not care but care a little bit well. I'm you've claire. But you have to understand too that it's it's not a judgment on you as a human being. That's where the not in other words. I'm so confident that i will set appointments point during the day. If this guy says no. I don't care i just go to the next all. Somebody's gonna tell me. Yes because i believe in my product. And i know i'm great at pitching it and so i'm just gonna dial and all i could do. I tell people in my training videos is that you can't make anybody do anything in this world. Yes all i can do is try to persuade them. You know. try to show them and tell them and educate them to understand the benefits and but they can say no. I can't make them and once you realize that you don't get bogged you don't get depressed or worried When you get a no answer you know that guy just didn't understand or sometimes people are literally you know. I credit cards for mbna. America bank and we were calling about our rates and everything somebody actually had a card with lower interest rates and no annual fee and they had the travel insurance ahead. Well he doesn't need our part. I'd say what you want another car but there are people out. There have great. It service. they don't need us to come out there. So i did about that but if i am talking to somebody that actually has some holes in their their service right and they do need us. They don't know it. I try to educate them. But you can't win them all no no but in the book a good point. Which is that whether it's Yeah so it says a happy or you know. Send information and you're doing some probing and you're being enthusiastic about the prospect of sending information as opposed to suddenly shutting down and so on his is your just find a way to connect with that person and establish some sort of common ground report. Report is the kind of a lost art of building report. And what i realized is that you know if you're face to face selling selling cars you build report in a different way. If you're on the phone you don't have the same report tools. You're not even face to face with them You might spend the same amount of time with them. So you need new tools and i just posted today on linked in about the jungle cruise and i watched will. They'll have the right. I wanted out fucking about the ride. How it came out and it was fairly successful but people weren't riding it multiple times because it was the same right. It was born and dizzy. Heard that you went to imagine civil. Can we do. And they decided to make it funny and to make the skippers tell jokes but every time different jokes. It's all humor suddenly by wonder. I'd hear the jokes over and over and over again so humor on the phone really. It's the same as the jungle cruise. Canny corny jokes mother law jokes jokes corny jokes. Funny jokes puns. You can say on the phone and relieved people And suddenly make him laugh. And there's no better report than laughter with somebody but of course complementing them builds rapport asking questions to learn interest. Them is still the most reliable way. People love to talk about themselves but also like to know that others are interested in them. That's chow. Dini wrote bookings book pre suasion about you. Know people like to do business with people they think like them and while the ways you exhibit that you find someone likable as inquire about them and compliments. I call compliments. Sincere compliments are the oil that oils the cogs of the wheels right. I mean literally imagine an engine running without oil and it's all rough and breaks down and you have to have oil lubricated and the lubricate the conversation between me and you and make it go smooth you have to have that layer in oil called compliments letter sincere not a lot of very few wealth time. Well placed compliments. I love the compliment. Someone's voice you hear. A guy answered the phone south. You could tell us a broadcaster right. He's got the deep baritone voice. You know And complement people usually know if they have a great voice and a compliment. That voice since a man. Were you ever in radio. You know that was my common. You ever radio in the news on radio right. Wow you missed your talent you know. Suddenly you know what's so amazing is two people could call the same guy. Could both call you and have to separate different outcomes and the difference really because all we're asking people. This is what i realized. All we're asking is what fifteen twenty minutes to meet with somebody and most companies meet with people throughout the day anyway right so asking them to have a fifteen twenty minute conversation with us instead of somebody else in. It's not really that big of an ask. And if you're like me and i say something half intelligently and rows your curiosity a bit of course i'll have become for fifteen twenty minutes. Why wouldn't especially if you made me feel good and important. I mean just being human or someone makes. It makes a huge difference. So what good.

Then we spring him the mutational emini when habits and can it be a good strategy. I think you can't. There's a number of players bangles demonstrated that but it's important that you don't only focus on emanate but you have also healthy business underneath That's growing year. Over year of we may add for the people who've never been in a post merger integration. That can basically make you lose all your hair because you have different teams different culture plus embarrassed cases completely different. It infrastructure so you have to make a lot of decisions to actually end up. Sometimes a few years sometimes even decades later with one unified company if you do the right steps along the way and there's a lot of very large mergers at just basically when I assume you already had a plan. How to integrate a next n Identity to 'em in your infrastructure india your processes before you actually Bought them right. I would describe it as we have. We have a plan and the be with identity. I'm gonna format into integration. We've just discussed last night that we actually aim to conclude most of the integration work streams efforts by the end of this year. So not talk indicates here. We're talking less than a year. As a goal there was still be some some the infrastructure that will probably continue to run for a while. but but but there would think that we're pretty good a pretty good track It's also somewhat Natural fifty with both into same geographic market redressing the similar similar verticals booking with a similar products in france.

There is there is a perception of 'em area next in the market so we have a plan there as well to integrate the two companies we have already defined roles and responsibilities of founders. So that's that's all that's all happening. Pretty good understanding of the product the client base and have a vision for the for the joint product portfolio. But the real really detailed post merger degration plan would only put two gate will only be put together Let's see now in the coming weeks and months after the closing.

Pompeo's Letter Is the Trump Administration's Opening Salvo of Obstruction

"Let's start with what we know about. Mike Pompeo the more and more we're starting to see here. It is is quite clear that we are headed to a a full blown impeachment possibly not just against the president they are stonewalling. They are we now have pompeo subpoenaed for documents Giuliani Subpoena for documents the failure to provide these documents now and this is what the differences with impeachment as opposed to normal proceedings they have written in the context of this subpoena but failure to produce produce under these circumstances will be regarded as evidence of obstruction and will constitute obstruction action in the context of impeachment. They are simply declaring it. Remember this is not this is a political a political process not a criminal or judicial. One and Congress is simply saying you do not provide us this material. It will be a count of obstruction and it will be obstruction it. They could launch impeachment proceedings against Pompeii. Oh they could do it against bill bar and it feels like every day there's more and more the evidence to substantiate an impeachment proceedings against both of them. Here's Palm Peyot two weeks ago two weeks ago now. Maybe this wasn't this Sunday. Oh yeah wait it. Was this Sunday wasn't it. I'm sorry sorry I'm confused because today's Wednesday here he is on this week with Martha. Raddatz on Sunday right this is with Martha got it and here he is. He's completely bewildered about this whole call thing do they call will return to this whistle blower complaint mister secretary the complained involving the president and a phone call with the foreign leader to the director of National Intelligence Inspector General. That's where the complaint was lodged by the whistleblower. The Wall Street Journal is reporting the president trump pressed the president of Ukraine eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani to investigate Joe Biden son. What do you know about those conversations so you just gave me a report report about IC whistle blow compaign none of which I've seen I can tell you about this administration's policies with Ukraine. I remember the previous administration was begged begged by the Ukrainian people to deliver defensive arms so that they can protect themselves from Vladimir Putin and Russia and they gave them blankets. This administration took seriously the responsibility of grain and people. We've provided now on multiple occasions resources so that the Ukrainians can defend themselves. We've worked on that. We Are we're working. We'll see presence Alinsky this week. We want a good relationship with let me read something freedom and independence but you know nothing about this but let me let me let me ask ask you this question. Ukrainian presidential read out of the conference conversation said they discussed quote investigation of corruption cases which inhibited the interaction between between Ukraine and the US say the president tweeted Saturday was perfectly fine and respectful conversation. Do you think it's perfectly fine to ask foreign leader to investigate a political opponent. I think I saw statement from the Ukrainian. Foreign Minister yesterday said there was no pressure applied in the course of the conversation I I I do think I do think if President Biden behaved inappropriately fee was protecting his son and intervened with the Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt. I do think we need to get to the bottom of that. Martha within I I hope that we will. I hope that Vice President Biden engaged in behavior that was appropriate. I hope the American people will come to learn that we've seen Matt Matt have interfered with America cannot have our elections interfered with and if that's what took place there if there was that kind of activity engaged in by Vice President Biden. We need to know Oh. There's no evidence of that yet but if the conversation was perfectly fine as president trump said why not release the transcript or a portion to the public the white hustle have to explain I mean I think we've this was this was it must have been a week a week from last Sunday. There's two weeks ago and there's Mike pompeo seemingly no awareness of this call whatsoever. You didn't even have time to read the whistle blower complaining just heard a report about the whistle missile blower complaint he did though put a clue in there because it wasn't just about Joe Biden in Hunter Biden's corruption. This phone call was not just about that that we should say and we'll we'll discuss the the the lack of corruption that exists there I mean at least in terms of Joe Biden's perspective but they are now pursuing another theory that is Obama Gate or Hillary Gate that the Ukrainians were the ones who actually actually interfered with the election but tried to frame the Russians. This is the stuff that's going on now in the fevers this gateway pundit stuff and there's Mike pompeo trying to push that narrative on ABC television last week. This is what they've been up to but we'll get back to that meantime. Here's Mike Pompeo yesterday in Italy conceding that well actually I was on that phone. Call was on the phone. Call was on the phone call. The phone call was in the context of now. I guess I've been secretary state for coming on a year and a half I know precisely what the American policy with respect to Ukraine remarkably consistent and we will continue to try a to drive those set of outcomes. It's what our team included. Including Ambassador Volker or focused on was taken down the threat that Russia poses there in Ukraine it was about helping the Ukrainians to get graft out corruption outside of their government a- and to help now this new government in the Ukraine build a successful thriving economists what State Department officials that is basically that was his way of. I mean he listened. Easy is smart guy went to Harvard knows how to Filibuster knows how to bury the lead. I was on the phone call but because and then here's a bunch of filler. Essentially that's basically the the story they're going with now. I imagine most people by I now know that the Hunter Biden situation the Joe Biden was over there telling the Ukrainian they get rid of your prosecutor because the prosecutor was not pursuing corruption and there was a hideous amount of corruption there it also happens to be the case that Hunter Biden is not exactly a you know. He's he's sort of the George Bush the family. He's a fell son. Can I right. I just add to this a little bit. I mean so to be really specific about what you're saying. The reason it is exculpatory. I think there's a broader critique here in two ways but the reason it specifically Komo can specific conspiracy theory does not stand is that this energy company is a Russian aligned oligarch who was was gonna who sort of represented the Russian aligned order he got Hunter Biden on with the sort of clear desire to win favor with the Obama Administration and what Biden did was basically fire a prosecutor who was aligned with this guy and not all for the firing right call for the firing so so basically the reason that this specific threat of the story is nonsense. Is that in that specific action. He's contradicting his son's interest to the frankly I mean it's you know it's pretty irrelevant. His son makes a payday either way right. Let the conspiracy theory is exactly backwards. He's going up against what the sun is hired to do. However I mean it's actually sort of an interesting drama where the dad comes in and the wayward son. Is there and he tries to undercut the wayward sons interests or even. It doesn't matter like hey son. You got your payday. We're still going to do this anyways. You know either way we win and I would say that serious. You know I wouldn't take I do think you know structurally when the US talks about corruption other countries even when they're right that is a harbinger of our own interests and energy companies. We want to advocate for so there's there's a broader critique as well as just even hunter getting the job to begin with but that's specific conspiracy is contradicted by all evidence of what happened. The hunter thing is more of a generic type of corruption. That seems to exist everywhere whether it's like you know Chelsea Clinton. I'm getting hired by. NBC or Abby Huntsman for that matter or you know Billy Carter going around and trying to sell off access to advil yeah. Billy Carter was cool though I feel bad for him because he didn't have family sign off. He's just trying to Qaddafi May. Why do you always get all the credit read it. I don't get the sense that hunter necessarily has family sign off too. I think this guy get family sign off from his brother to sorry what's that you don't know that story about the net. It's been a lot of things I did without family sign-off man hey my brother died. What's up sauter her but the trump people the trump people are always going to be angrier at these coastal elites and it's like normal corruption and this kind of nepotism. It's just accepted as the way of things than they are at trump's open and craven corruption and I mean look because they're like well. At least he's not pretending that he doesn't have mud on him right but the the bottom line is is that this type of corruption exists in every facet of society. I'm not making apologies for it but I mean you know you grow up in you know we. I I went to go see concerts in high school because my girlfriend's dad was on the Civic Center Commission. You know it's like Whoa Whoa Whoa. I think you just showed yourself here. They might need to take the rest of the week off Sam. I gotcha flow deep corruption but I I mean of course this is true and of course the stakes of the the cranium energy business are deeper than basically hunter gets the job promises yeah. I'll get dad well. He shows up at the loss he also got. MBNA lobbying thing right at the same time as dad was pushing through the bankruptcy bill he was on the board of something the board of the Amtrak Amtrak which is basically a trade expert bro Brothers wives. I just think that come into an Amtrak board way would family members everywhere and some are incentivized to do this stuff and helped out more more than others but nevertheless meanwhile as Mike Pompeo heads it's to Rome apparently Seb Gorka gets on the plane with him because someone has to go now understand the here's the point one of the reasons why impeachment was so necessary in which I was saying for months. Was that there you you can't just basically run out the clock and it -ssume that there's just GonNa be this vacuum that remains there while all all this is going on. It's quite clear the trump administration bill bar Mike pompeo have been actively involved involved in trying to not only undercut the Muller investigation. Remember the molar investigation to over. They're undercutting the entire

"South Africa has one of the biggest economies in Africa. But it's facing a major power crisis electric power is the problem. South Africa's state owned utility Eskom has a near monopoly over the power industry. But it's been a financial disaster. Not just for the company itself. But for the national economy mismanagement and corruption are widely seen as the root cause but how to straighten out the company is a matter of public debate today. South Africa's finance minister announced his plan for a bailout of the utility setting outside Twenty-three below Rhonda. Violation is support Eskom. Jody is reconfiguration. Some tepid reaction there. But also some applause for finance Minister Tito, Mboweni twenty three billion South African rand by the way is about five billion US dollars. That'll be paid over three years to Eskom. But MBNA wanted to point out that the deal is not a blank check. The fiscal support. This is very important. The fiscal support is conditional. On the appointment of an independent chief the officer. We'll be jointly appointed by the minister of finance and the minister of public enterprises, the head of Eskom wanted more bailout money from the South African government and boy named declined. He said pouring money directly into the state's utility in. Its current form would be like pouring water into a
