"David Weston President Biden is about to announce a series of steps the government is taking to maximize protections against the spread of the over crown variant including efforts at the border to keep the virus out of the country wherever we can We welcome back now Michael chertoff he's former secretary of Homeland Security He is cofounder of the chertoff group So Michael thank you so much for being back with us I mean you had responsibility for that border security Give us a sense of the responsibility we're putting on the shoulders of people like at TSA and for that matter on our border with Mexico or border with Canada Well I mean I think that obviously there's going to be a new set of requirements I think at least discuss the possibility requiring testing within a day before you come into the United States I think be sure to check in at the border in terms of whether people have a randomized testing or temperature or things of that sort So there will be an operational change that will have to go into effect Now this has happened before and we've dealt with it But it forced a little bit of a shakedown that's required to get everybody up to speed on new protocols to make sure they're properly equipped And of course if the land borders you get a lot of pressure because there you've got a huge volume of people and that means you've got a lot of additional folks you have to test or evaluate Well talk about the landlord just for a moment Michael because we do hear I've heard on this program several times and I must say often it's from Republican lawmakers saying part of the problem with the pandemic actually is that border with Mexico There's a fair amount of disease coming across the border Do we know if that's true I don't really know that that's true I mean it reminds me of people saying that oh the border of Mexico is in vehicle or an avenue for a lot of terrorists which turned out not to be true In fact if we've gotten terrorists coming their first land border it is typically been from Canada not So I think that gets swept up in politics I don't think there's a particularly high level of disease coming from Mexico But again you know you have to look at all the borders landscape and air if you're going to take a comprehensive approach So Michael we're going to the holiday season Obviously unfortunately we're going to be focused once again on COVID and particularly as overcome variant But give us a sense of what other security risks that might be heightened during this holiday season One of the risks which will continue in terms of cybersecurity as more of a Civil War remotely we've been using our devices on the network Many of those devices are not particularly well protected And he's become avenues for people to engage in cyberattacks But beyond that we've seen a dramatic increase in ransomware we've seen a tax on healthcare systems Colonial Pipeline other kinds of critical infrastructure and I have every reason to believe that may continue And that's going to require a strategic change in terms of how we look at cybersecurity both from the government and from the private sector I know the government now is focusing on upping the game in terms of defending critical infrastructure And I expect with in very short order we're going to see some additional new steps taken to make sure we are protecting ourselves against not only criminal groups but frankly geopolitical adversaries like Russia and Iran And we had that spate of incidents including pipelines and things like that A lot of ransomware attacks They seem to have died down a good deal Is that because we're doing a better job I don't think that you dive down frankly I think maybe they paused a little bit We are doing somewhat of a better job I know the TSA for example put out rules with respect to pipelines that increase their cybersecurity capabilities But I wouldn't count on this coming away And in fact there was a story reported recently in the news about the Iranians attacking their major healthcare system in Israel So this is going to be with us for some time And particularly as matters heat up with Russia and Ukraine we may wind up hearing some affects of that in terms of cyber disruption aimed at distracting the United States from being too engaged in what's going on in Europe Mister secretary tickets back into your old job for a moment because there are various instance we had that terrible incident with the walker shook holiday parade with the motorists who drove through the prey We also have all of these apparently organized smash and grab it and what you call it thieves sort of breaking into stores in Northern California At what point does that become a Homeland Security issue rather than simply a local law enforcement issue Well I think certainly if you're dealing with an organized group particularly when it's motivated by terrorism does become a Homeland Security issue I don't know that there was concent case was a terrorist issue sure I think it may have been somebody involved in criminal activity fleeing and trying to distract and these efforts to engage in smash and grab alluding in California against humanely criminal What I do think we see there was a phenomenon in which as someone carries out for example a series of criminal acts others watch it and they start to imitate it And this is really a challenge for social media whether these platforms are not becoming vehicles for inciting bad behavior on the part of those who watch it succeed and go well I'm going to do this too And then this we're going to need to take a closer look at how do we work with social media to make sure you're not becoming incendiary tools in promoting criminality and violence And you raise such an interesting point I mean obviously you were a lawyer youth attorney a Court of Appeals judge of the third circuit And as you know well and criminal law conspiracies are worse than individuals acting So some of this is the organization involving other people whether it's internationally in a terrorist group or homegrown Can you compare the risk of international terrorism as opposed to just homegrown terrorism that's organized Well right now we've actually done a good job over the last 20 years and protecting our country against international terrorists coming in from overseas over another part of the world And that's the data to a lot of the very fine work done by the folks in the border When you're dealing with homegrown terrorism there's no border It's right next door And I think that's why we're seeing an increase in the homegrown terrorist acts where there is a tax on religious institutions or things in schools is firing in many cases by the Internet but sometimes just generated And that's much harder to deal with because it's low profile There's usually not a lot of planning communication and the intelligence agencies are much more eliminated in their ability to examine intelligence domestically than is the case overseas because we do have certain constitutional protections And that's why the issue of homegrown terrorism violence is going to require much more engagement by local law enforcement and even by local communities who have to be willing to speak up when they see a threat rising in the neighborhood If you see something say something I guess is what that is Thank you so much mister secretary for being back with us That is Michael chertoff He's former U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and author of exploding data reclaiming our cybersecurity in the digital age Coming up.

Bongino Details How Chinese Government Never Gives up Any Information
"Time. Don't go anywhere. Folks my experience with the Chinese government. Let's There's a lot of it. Sometimes I wish they weren't but there is I didn't advance in my prior line of work over in Beijing. I did the Shangri La Hotel advance when I was working with the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff during on his detail with the Secret Service, So I was over there for a little bit of time. About two weeks or so. So, you know. In Secret service time. It's a decent enough body work to get a flavor for the place, right? I'm telling you, these guys are very good at what they do. Very good they would share with us almost nothing. Information wise. Why does that mean They're good because other countries do because they don't want the president to get whacked in their country because it would make them look like idiots. And it would be really bad for international geopolitics, right? Remember when I first joined the Secret Service and the Pope Pope John Paul, adjust left ST Louis and I got I was I had just gotten on. The guys were still recovering from the trip, and I looked at him and I said, Man, you know, I'm brand new. I mean, I've been in the office like a week. I see you guys look really tired. Like, Yeah, we worked our butts off on that trip are but so I said why they said Man, Nobody wants the pope to get whacked in their country. It looks really bad. And I thought, okay. I mean, that's what the guy was on. My words was raised and I looked at him like okay like it's kind of an interesting logic there. Well, the same thing applies obviously the foreign protectees and heads of state. What was
Why Didn't The FBI And DHS Produce A Threat Report Ahead of The Capitol Insurrection?
"Before most major protests are rallies, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. Usually produced a formal intelligence report explaining the possible threats, and then they send that report to local law enforcement to help them plan. DHS and the FBI did one of these threat assessment assessments ahead of the demonstrations in Portland, Oregon, after the killing of George Floyd last spring. He also did one before Black lives matter Marches in Washington in June, But there was no threat assessment done ahead of the deadly attack on the U. S Capital. NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team has been looking into this. Good morning, Dina. Good morning. I mean, all you had to do. Deena was look at social media for the weeks leading up to the January 6th rally. To know things could potentially get really bad at the Capitol. You didn't even need a formal threat assessment to tell you that did law enforcement Just not pick up on that. No, that was part of the raw intelligence that they were putting together like the New York Police Department scrapes social media, and they sent what they found A Washington There was sort of unverifiable threats, that sort of thing. Bond. There was more raw intelligence that came before that. Just a day after that, Just a day before the pro Trump rally, the Norfolk Field office in the FBI confirmed that They had found specific threats against members of Congress and exchange of maps of the tunnel system under the Capitol complex, and there were people online talking about gathering in Kentucky and Pennsylvania and South Carolina. To meet up before convoy Ng up to Washington and things. Norfolk report was first reported in the Washington Post a couple of days ago. So they were gathering this together then then what happened to where did that raw intelligence go? Well, that's the problem. It never made it much past that raw intelligence stage, so basically they might have picked up a thread or had a human source. Tell them something or that or say that they saw something, but it didn't go to the next step, where it's validated and analyzed and Put into a larger picture put into context. So when the FBI does that they put it in a report called an Intelligence bulletin. When DHS does some something like that they call it a threat assessment report. And then sometimes the two of them put out a report together and typically, then they would send that that finished product out to local law enforcement. So we're going to talk about why that didn't happen. But first, can you just explain? Why is that assessment so much more valuable than straight? Raw Intel? What's the difference? Local law enforcement sees threat assessment says actionable intelligence I mean the bulletins are considered finished right there a synthesis of validated and analyzed intelligence and that helps local law enforcement make informed decisions. So we talk to the former head of DHS Michael Chertoff and get into your point. He said that in this case, the threat was so out in the open. The threat assessment was almost beside the point. It was perfectly obvious. She read the newspaper that there was gonna be a big rally that the president was talking about being be wild and that the focus was going to be the capital. Where they were having a certification vote show. They didn't take rocket science to see if there was a realistic foreseeable risk to the Capitol, and you would enhance the security. I mean, but maybe they need the threat assessment to put the process in place to get troops on the ground or security forces on the ground. I mean, DHS and the FBI have issued intelligence bulletins for four as we mentioned Black lives matter. Protests what was different this time around? Why didn't they treat this the same way? Our reporting found that one of the reasons that they didn't treat it the same way may have been bias. We talk to someone named R P. Eddy and he used to be in the National Security Council. He's done a lot of counterterrorism work. He worked with the NYPD and the LAPD. And now he has his own intelligence consultancy, and he thinks It's something called the invisible obvious. Was it work and basically, that's things that sit right in front of us that we don't notice. It was very hard for these decision makers in these analysts to realize that people who look just like them could want to commit this kind of unconstitutional violence and get little he tried to and want to kill them. So in other words, in other words, this was supposed to be a pro trump rally, and then it wasn't and it was hard for these law and order people to see that this mob these people who were so pro Trump, who had bumper stickers, just like theirs on the back of their cars were going to commit violence. And by the time they figure that out, it was too late. And then it really begs the question. Did they not see it? Because they didn't want to see it. I mean, or they couldn't see it were their blind spots. Exactly And that and that, In fact, a lot of these people that they were seeing, right? I mean they were wearing pro Trump T shirts. They were there to support the president. When you think of those kinds of people. You you don't think about those being the people that you might have to worry will resort to violence and that was what went wrong. It wasn't you know something nefarious. It was just when you looked at it without the analysis. It seemed like this'll was just going to be another rally. And then it wasn't NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team. Thank you.

"But then it be broader than the sex that we look at the entire process leading up to this that is involved a consistent effort, promoting misinformation and disinformation promoting the alternative version of reality that somehow this was a stolen election. The insight Into come to Washington, the incitement to violence. This is part of a larger, deeper set of issues, and I wouldn't treat the sixth as a simple standalone matter, But I would treated as part of an ongoing process and, of course, the person whose lead that is the is the commander in chief himself. The president. I wonder how you reflect on The video that was taken down by Twister in the immediate aftermath of the six in which he said he had called the National Guard. The first thing he said, was untrue. Well, that's been characteristic of Donald Trump's behavior. Over the years. You've been going back in before he was president. The truth is really a stranger when he speaks, and he creates and fosters an alternative reality. And the scary thing is, there are significant number of people who ultimately wind up being unable to distinguish between the falsehoods and the truth. As someone who has served under a Republican president. What do you now make off the plans to impeach this president for a second historic time? While I understand the symbolic value of doing that? I do think that the likelihood of his being removed before January 20th is very slim, given the amount of time that's left. And then they have to make a decision about whether devoting a lot of time to this, as opposed to helping the new president and his Cabinet in place at deal with some of the burning issues that we face, whether that's a useful expended church time. Even if you put the timing issue to one side, do you think it's important that the president should be prevented from standing for office ever again? I don't think you should ever be standing for office again. But again, it's not as urgent as making sure we get Through the inauguration in the next eight days. Do you think in the next eight days, President Trump continues to be a threat to the U. S government to the way in which the government is running. I do think that the law abiding people in the agencies are not going to obey illegal orders. We will have. Ah, think of Commander in chief has retreated into himself and is living in his own head. But I do think there are a lot of competent officials who are actually in charge of operating the government. That will be faithful to their oath to the Constitution. I wonder, just finally. How you reflect on the events of the last few days, the political convulsions as well as what happened on the six says as somebody who has been Uh, somebody who served under Republican government. How do you reflect on on what's taken place? I think it order make sure reflect that, even for a country that has been committed to the Constitution, democracy for decades, and many years there is a fragility and we need to be vigilant. And everybody has a role to play in making sure that we approach the truth that we don't shit we treat lies as an alternative version of reality, and I think it has to be Himself searching. Was former secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, who served under Republican President George W. Bush. Now a week is a long time and politics a week ago, would have seemed outside the realms of possibility that President Trump would face a second historic impeachment just eight days before he leaves the White House. But what happened on July the sixth Is propelling the Democrats to do just that that speak to Democratic congresswoman Carolyn Bordeaux. She is the U. S representative for Georgia's seventh Congressional District and the only member of Congress to flip the district from Red to blue. Congratulations on doing that to you. First of all, Welcome to the program. Let's let's start by just getting you to react to what you've just heard a former security official from of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, saying that he doesn't think that the president should stand for office again that that must strike you as a pretty remarkable It is and just shows the level of abuse This'll president has perpetuated on the democracy. I absolutely agree with that, and we need to find a way to make sure that we protect the country and hold him accountable for what's happened. Let's talk about the impeachment process because it's quite likely that what's happening today in the House is not going to result in the vice president, saying that the 25th amendment should be invoked. And then the impeachment proceedings will kick in. You have been firmly behind this. Just explain to us what you're thinking has been Sure. So I'm coming from Georgia. Ah, place where the president has been trying to pressure our secretary of state who is a Republican who actually voted for the president, but he's been trying to pressure him. To change the results of the election. And, of course, Georgia voted for President elect Biden. That was clearly an illegal action. It failed, and when it failed, then he turned around and incited a violent mom to attack the capital to try to stop the certification of the election. Wilder capital was overrun by this violent mob. The president refused to deploy the National Guard to defend the capital. Um, you know, this is insurrection. It is an attempted coup day, Tom, and we have to have a swift response and impeachment. If the vice president won't respond, then we are compelled to support impeachment. It is your phone belief that he incited the crowd. Is there something specific that he said that you feel that will be the single thing that we point will be pointed to In these articles. You can go through the transcript of his speech, and there are many instances where he says things like he hopes that vice president Pence will do the right thing. But if not, you know, we know what to do that we have to be strong. When we go to the capital. We can't be weak. Now on the other thing, everybody needs to realize that he's saying these kind of whipping up whipping up the crowd of words. With the crowd that everybody knows, has been discussing violent insurrection on social media. So he is doing that knowing full well what their internal discussions have been on DeSoto. It is You know, it's just a phenomenal thing. And just one last thing, you know that that you don't you don't have to hurry with this because we are going to come back to you, Caroline Bordeaux. Just so we're just gonna return to a summary off the latest World news and we will be back with Congresswoman Carolyn Border. This is new South..

"Changing their vote disenfranchises my vote, But I don't You know, you don't hear about all the dead people voting who voted for them. If anybody go about trying to find them and prosecute it seems to me like speeding. You can get away with it may be under 10 Miles an hour, and then they give you a ticket, But little cheating hurts, too. And I understand it. It doesn't affect maybe the election results, but the more people get away with it. I think the more people will do it. Is there an organization or somewhere that tries to catch this? Absolutely so I You know, I talked to state election directors all the time to talk about what they do to prosecute motor fraud on bit's extensive, so states will exchange you know, data there there are.

People are prosecuted, but the number of people who are prosecuted when that kind of investigation unfolds is usually starts out as a Eventually bigger number you know, in the dozens on Ben, you know it's rendered down as as sort of figure out what was really going on from this morning's Washington Journal, Rebecca Green, William and Mary Law School professor of law and now we bring you a discussion about presidential transition. Hosted by the University of Virginia's Miller Center. C SPAN Radio. W C. Is PIA from Washington Come to another Miller center Webinar, this 10 produced and co Organized by the Centers for Presidential Transitions that the partnership for Public Service and Citizens for a strong democracy. I'm billing fullest, and I'm gonna moderate today's conversation, and it's the real pleasure to be with you all and they have these terrific guests. Presidential Transition Act was adopted by Congress in 1963 to provide an important statutory framework for the peaceful transfer of power. It has been updated several times since then. Until we discuss some of the important pressing issues coming out of that in the current transition and transferred Strong astral weeks Since my most major networks designated Joe Biden is president left buying team has been moving forward on a transition they selected in a dance to do. White House chief of staff. Have launched a pandemic task force and soon will be announcing other White House and cabinet level positions. It started conversations and foreign heads of state and with the number of American political leaders. Small But growing number of senior Republican leaders have acknowledged the outcome of the election, including former President Bush, his chief of staff, Andy Card, former secretary of state Condi Rice, counselor call room and a handful of other Republican senators. And yet we still not had a formal concession by President Trump that maybe a personal matter of his continuing to final legal claims in a number of states but by not conceding he's also hold held up a formal extradition that the beginning of the transfer of power should begin. Entertainment. Sorry, that is well. Joe Biden is transitioning from candidate the President President Trump and his administration is not transferring knowledge, know how technology and real estate The incoming team. How big a problem is this? How important is it that this happened now? When does it need to start when should start by law and one of the consequences of the July Those are some of the questions. We're going to address today with a terrific panel. We're joined today by Michael Chertoff, who served as secretary of Homeland security under President George W. Bush from 5 4009 before heading up THS. Mr Shore Account Services, a federal judge on the U. S Court of Appeals for the third circuit. Earlier during more than a decade as a federal prosecutor he invested in prosecuting cases of political corruption, organized crime, corporate fraud, terrorism. Including the investigation of the 9 11 terrorist attacks, is now co founder and executive chairman of the church, off Group and internationally recognized leader in security and Risk management Advisory services. Janet Napolitano is professor of public policy at the Golden School of Public Policy at U. C. Berkeley. She served as the 20th, president of the University of California that agent nation's largest Public Research University, joining the University of California professor Napolitano served as secretary of Homeland Security from 2009 to 2013. She's a former two term governor of Arizona. Former attorney general of Arizona and former U S attorney for Arizona. In 2019, the Polisario published house Safer We Homeland Security since 9 11 that you earned her B s degree of Santa Clara University. And her law degree from the University of Virginia. And finally, Dave Marr check is a retired executive from the Carlyle Group who also had worked in government at the State Department. He's serving in a volunteer role as director for the center of Four presidential transition that the Partnership for Public Service Is also an abject, adjunct professor of the Tuck School of Business of Darkness. Is your counsel at the law firm of Coming to the Berlin He spent 12 years at the Carlyle Group and also where he recently served as managing director. Global head of external affairs and lead Carlisle's regulatory and government affairs, communications and branding and sustainability efforts. So we're really delighted to have this terrific group. Let me start with this stalled GS a determination for the ascertain its, uh What is that? And why does it matter? Let me start with Dave. Since the center for presidential Transitions has played the title role in connecting transitions Now sort of couple cycles. So gave give us a sense of what this ascertainment is. What are they trying to ascertain? And what happens when it happens? This William Angeles University of Virginia's Miller Center thanks so much Bill and thanks for the Miller Center, when we also give my salute to Michael Chertoff, who I've known for the Holocaust Museum Museum and elsewhere for many years and also toe sectary Napolitano. I wish he was still president of University, California because None of the other. You suggest, even more important. My daughter's at Berkeley and I'd like her to check in on how her studies air going. So maybe she still has that influence but said that you struggled with the word ascertainment because it's not supposed to be a word that is commonly known. Because the issue of ascertaining the winner of the election has never been controversial, Never been politicized. There is a provision in the 1963 Presidential Transition Act, which gives the G s a administrator the responsibility of ascertaining the outcome of the election. There are many other government agencies that have similar responsibilities, too. Act when there's a new president elect. The Secret Service on Saturday morning significantly expanded their protection around President Biden because he was going to be president like fighting. And so that was not a politicized decision. The Secret Service just did that. So, unfortunately, even the most noncontroversial ministerial acts in this world In this town are being politicized today and this is this is one of them the subject that the criteria is basically if the outcome is clear, and the outcome is clear, the all the networks have called the election. Aziz, You said in your piece from last Sunday, four states would have to be turned over the likelihood of a recount. Changing the outcome is almost zero. Even President Bush stated in his own statement that the outcome is clear. And so we'll get into this. But the GSC should Make this ascertainment and then the Biden team should be able to get access to all the support which we could talk about similar. Well, let me bring in. Mr Chertoff is Napolitano and into this conversation because I do think the first thing that should be on people's mind in a peaceful transfer is Who's watching the home front is..

"590957 after we speak with the very, very special guest that I want to. Ah, Introduce you to who was kind enough to join us this morning because he was our first ever U. S secretary of Homeland security. He was also the before that the governor of Pennsylvania And you know what a swing state Pennsylvania is just like Michigan for next Tuesday. Governor Tom Ridge on the other end of our line, governor. Good morning. Great to talk with you, sir. Well, Frank. Good morning to you and your audience. So I hope all is. Well, The first thing we want to do everybody to be safe. And secondly, when everybody goto pulls in boat, right? Absolutely. You bet you and you've seen the same increase. I know in in absentee voting, and in Pennsylvania's we have here in Michigan. It's It's rather startling. Are you concerned or encouraged by that? Well, I'm I'm encouraged, Frank. I mean, I would tell you when I look back a 2016 on Lee 61% of registered voters chose to chose to vote in the presidential election tonight. You're talking to somebody that believes that voting is in a privilege. I think it's a responsibility. I'd like to see 100% participation and for a variety of reasons of highly contested presidential campaign and then roll of the pandemic. I think we're going to see Unprecedented turnout, both waiting in line to vote in person. And obviously, I read somewhere you had two million absentee ballots already presented in Michigan, and we're gonna have an unprecedented number in Pennsylvania's well, so stay tuned. Stay tuned indeed. And you know, it could be a long time after the polls close on Tuesday evening. Before we know who the President 46 president is. You know where Frank, I think it's important that ah, that issue be raised in that the public be educated by that simple fact. It's inconceivable to me either side is going to have a runaway election on results on the night of November, 3rd. And I think we weren't all Americans just to be peace patient. Let's make sure that every vote is counted. Every legitimate vote is counted. And I know in Pennsylvania. Historically, it's always a couple of days after before they can give you an official total. I know one thing. Michigan's doing that. I really applaud. We could get a dented early, but you're gonna begin processing your absentee ballots a day before in Pennsylvania. They're not going to start counting them until you have the day after the day after so We all have to be patient, and hopefully once the results are in there be a peaceful transition. If President Trump wins, he moves on and Vice President Biden wind moves on either way since President Washington we've gone from 11 term to the next peacefully, and we certainly hope it happens nationwide post November Heard Governor I'm with you on that. And you know it. Quite frankly, I can't even picture this president somehow if he loses the election, not giving up power. You know, I just can't see that I don't think he's that kind of person, and I think he'll accept the result. Yeah, I'd like to think that in spite of the rhetoric I mean, he has created some uncertainty around of the legitimacy of this election because he said, inferring that if you don't know the night of November, 3rd ah, that everything after that is tantamount to fried when in fact, we're goingto have millions and millions Of absentee ballots that will not be recorded by the night of the third. And these are individual Americans who want their voices to be heard. And I mean, he voted absentee in the past. You didn't do it. He understands what absentee ballots are. We understand that the tremendous pressure on the locals to make sure that they're all counted and the ones that deserve to be counted Art and frankly, they got barcode and technology, validation and signatures, and if they don't they're not to be counted. There was going to be throwing out, so I mean, there's a process here that's been in place for a long time. I'm hopeful that both parties both Biden and Trump except the reality it's going to take awhile. On the other hand, I could also see governor the concerns. The president has over the sanctity of the ballots because you know he's he's heard this this this hue and cry for his scalp for so long now, and it's just convinced that on the other side there, there are bad things going on that There's chicanery going on behind the scenes, and so I understand his concerns about it. I really do. Well, you know, I think one of the couple house for that again November 3rd the last day for the vote, not the last day to be counted. But frankly, I could make an argument. That the absentee process itself my it is pretty secure and the fact that it's going to take a little time to validate the legitimate votes as opposed to Disqualifying many that were properly filled out and popularly. Ah, dealt with that takes time. And one could argue that the security I think the security around absentee ballots is pretty decent. Naturally, I just hope I understand he may be concerned, but there's no Actually no historical evidence of any kind of mass approaches. And the other thing is Frank. You can appreciate this is a very decentralized process. I mean, you got people counting votes all around the country in a very decentralized way. So there's no conceivable way that in one particular you can affect an outcome and the kind of concerned that he has You know, That is a great point right there that the votes are not centralized. They don't go to one location, and they counted there for everybody. Each state has her own system. And so at some point, you got to put some trust in these people that We're elected or appointed to those positions to oversee it. And this is a good point. That's a good point. Perfected their guardians of democracy is an imperfect system. No, I think there was a heritage Foundation. That pretty conservative group took a look at all the absentee ballots cast over the past 20 years and found there were 200 presidential elections. There were 200 cases of fraud prosecutions were brought, but I pretty confident and I did. Having to do it today show with interview the other day with two with Michael Chertoff, my successor into Democrat secretary of Homeland Security. We're quite confident that bipartisan assessment quite confident that the security of the absentee ballot program is such that we should have confidence in the outcome, but we should Not be impatient. The outcome will be known out and I'll come open up for probably 2345 days afterwards. That's AH, That's sage advice. Re to remember that and I'm glad you brought it up, and I'm glad it's getting attention. You know that people are coming on saying, Look, we want we want an accurate count here from both sides and You.

"Of Bloomberg Radio. I'm Jim Gray, also U. S. Authorities have long wanted access to encrypted data to conduct criminal investigations. However, allowing this access is controversial and some say too risky, especially with the covert 19 outbreak, which has highlighted the increasing severity of cyber threats, including alleged Chinese hacking of vaccine data. Here to tell us why law enforcement doesn't need a backdoor to data is Michael Chertoff, former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and founder of the Chertoff Group, a risk management and security consulting company. Tell us how the French were able to conduct a successful investigation into an encrypted communications network without access to a back door. You're obviously over. We don't have speakers that I had a technique that allowed them to share from vent encryption and there are a number of different way he might be able to do that. I'm here to be ableto actor, the endpoint device that Found the information on it. That's been decrypted or some floor and encryption. Or some ability to use the credentials of authorized Reader in order to insure yourself in to look at the material, but the point is that they were used technological ingenuity with that requiring the platform. The week ended encryption in a way that would make people vulnerable across the board. Explain it a little more depth why you would oppose Congress, forcing tech companies to give law enforcement on Lee an encryption backdoor. Because there is a law enforcement only encryption, backdoor backdoor move you think, use the floor. The encryption exploited by somebody knows what floor is it? And that anybody who find out what that floor is, will have the ability to break the encryption on the longest day of the party, a law enforcement Help me for anybody who's using the platform and as we see in our day More and more people are working from home worn more sense that you're coming online. And one of the main ways we perfected to encrypt it. Oh, you think that there would be more exposure to cyber attacks and people getting data? Private data of users were no question that you put it back door, or do you think And you're weak encryption. We've been here for everybody. There's no continued weakening for one pushed the math, Max And then the issue is for someone else They'll know support that And the weird thing is, yes. Dad, You're one of the rebels has the people of Kei. We have the issue of sometimes the government used confidential things. For example, there was a shadow brokers that critical tools that were used by the U. S government, you know, hacking the certain targets. Now it was stolen and descended over the Internet. So it's a little bit like King everybody. We'd like you to have a weak lock on your front door sort of policed and entered the estimates Search one without recognizing that for a week for the burglaries Well, What do you say to those who say Well, we have to weigh the benefits to law enforcement against the problems that we would expose. People, too, If we gave law enforcement this backdoor in that law enforcement is more important here. Love. I think it's long with your reasons are very important to the table and make a case against criminals. Having everybody put it risk more criminals does not present as in 1000 training, I would say you look at the examples that we sighted in in historical have written about Encryption. The government after we had many tools. Ready, General, Where are you? To pursue people who are doing their thinks that much you enough to have been a work 20 or 30 years ago. So, for example, what they call medic that What's your name? What directly address of the sender. You dressing the recipient that is already unencrypted. You have the unencrypted because the platform he's able to decipher and direct the package story. I have to go. The acting was enormous amount, invaluable information. Mom because it shows connecting between people who might have. Well, if you were the terrorist, they're criminals. So that's the kind you can already do you Have you seen example that would use about the Saudi Our shooter. They didn't need to have a home to know. He was coming to our card. It was communicating telephonically with known her once you move that You knew everything you need to do to escort this guy out of the country. So a lot of times what happened? There's an obvious way to get information but overlooked. It's not properly understood, and therefore breaking encryption doesn't really come the problem and this becomes kind of easy way he is since your results. You write that mandating encryption back doors will empower authoritarian governments. Tell us what you mean by that? Well, I mean, one thing with the Chinese and the Russians aren't picking upon more prevalent. Years. If you have a platform that people in our country you've got to give us the ability to see what they're saying, and if necessary to shut down with this thing. And that encryption is a threat to Chinese and Russians authoritarian because what it means that people may be communicating in a way that the government's not going to read. And you know, even there. Okay. I think you are concerned about government intrusion into the private discussion and political virus. Political views that people are reflect upon. Three. Whether they're you're comfortable reducing the ability to encrypt in the face of that. And how do you think us companies would suffer if law enforcement gets up blanket access? Well, what happens is that companies that are not Americans, their new have so encryption were simply wanted bearing the business. That is now being operated for us. And you see one of the reasons, for example, that some of the Chinese companies are now being banned, like going in here from having a certain kind of Of communication posted. There's precisely because of the concerns the Chinese you're using that To surveil with nine. The U. S were to create a bath doors. What We're beginning years. Europeans and people from other countries would say We don't want you using Martin product hears us communiqu fired. And so I think that's very short sighted. Economic complains of, or force mint standpoint to try to weaken encryption. Thank.

"The response of tear-gas. Now the Justice Department, an independent watchdog is investigating the use of force used by federal officials in Portland, and in Washington, DC last month. A senior members of previous Republican administrations are speaking up and protesting what the president is doing including our next guest Michael Chertoff. The former homeland security secretary under President George. W Bush Secretary Chertoff thanks so much for joining us. You've called this move of the president to send agents into cities very problematic unsettling. Why? Why do you think it's damaging for the Department of Homeland Security? Well I particularly focus on the issue of using agents for crowd control. It's appropriate to protect federal buildings, but looks based on the reporting in the video. As if the Homeland Security agents were sent in range somewhat outside the perimeter of the federal building that they were dressed in a way more appropriate to. Combat operations in the southern border than urban environment and that there was no coordination cooperation global art. And that really oversteps. I think what federal authorities are, and certainly unwise turned way they executed, and may actually have poured gasoline onto the fire search. And this initially started with them. These agents being unidentified. Driving around Portland vans and snatching up people. And nobody knew what was going on, it was all very mysterious. Another former Homeland Security Secretary your predecessor Tom Ridge said something on CNN last night that I. Want to get your reaction to. Disappointed in my president. Because, it seems like it's a reality TV approach toward dealing with a very very serious problem. Secretary Ridge also went on to say in a radio interview that the Department of Homeland Security was not established to be the president's personal militia. Personal militias pretty hard to do you have that view as well? That's how trump is using it. Well. I think certainly the way. The White House announced this by focusing on the facts, democratic mayors and time you seem to some campaigning for instruments, certainly Lens, the strong impression at the White House of use this as a political stunt. And we were very hard Tom Ridge and I, and our successors, also both in both the Bush Obama, administration's to make DHS partisan treat everybody as if they're part of the same team as in defense department does and so I kind of in the same boat as general, Milley an secretary expert..

"Have been carrying out around the country for decades. Well, yes, apparently is very bad. We're told by J. Johnson, the former head of Homeland security under Barack Obama is very bad stuff he says is provocative. You see what we need to let the writer's run roughshod through cities? Well, the mayor's stand by and do nothing because otherwise you might provoke them. I have this habit when it comes to criminals. I don't care what they think. I want them put in jail. You provoke people? Oh, my God. They're going to see a law enforcement officer and they might be from provoked. They're burning down the damn courthouse. There's J. Johnson. A surge like this would probably be unnecessarily provocative and actually make matters worse, the militaristic presence on the streets of the United States in our cities during moments of high tension can actually make matters worse and be provocative. There is legislation working its way through to limit the sale of Defense Department equipment. Two civilian law enforcement our cities because it is provocative. You see those images of people who used to work for me in camouflage who look like the military. Andi. It's provocative, so provocative, so much provocation. Provocative, provocative, very provocative. Or alternatively, you know, it's provocative people burning down cities. It's provocative. People are making a cottage industry on the political moderate center right and just kind of ripping from for no reason. So Michael Chertoff is one of these. He was the former Department of Homeland Security had under under George W. Bush. And he was saying maybe the feds are exceeding their authority. I see no evidence. The feds are exceeding their authority thus far, none like I'm waiting for the evidence. Show me the evidence, and then I'm happy to talk about whether the feds were exceeding their authority. I don't see the evidence yet. You could protect federal part. But that doesn't mean it's an unlimited relations to roam around the streets and pick up people based on some suspicion that maybe there involved we're going to be involved in something roving around on the street and stopping people and Are taken down. Strike me as going beyond that it's on and that's wholly apart from The Fourth Amendment issues. Because whatever statute 20,000 years we still have a constitution. Okay. So again, this is not realistic. The fact is that that what the feds are doing right now is perfectly within the enabling legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by prior presidents. Those were the mild criticism. You wait until you hear the extreme criticisms from the radical left of what Trump is doing here. It gets extremely wild extremely fast.

"To another issue that has come up now. And that is the demonstrations in the wake of the tragic killing of George Floyd demonstrations that have continued in some parts of country, including in Portland, Oregon, where I guess they had something like 54 55 straight days of it. And now we have federal officers. I guess I'll call them agent. Something showing up is a little unclear where they come from. What is the proper breakdown between the federal government? State local authorities when it comes to policing civil unrest. Well show again, depending on the nature of the law enforcement issue. They're different authorities, For example, the federal government does have the right and the obligation to protect federal buildings, Federal courthouse, But that means really the perimeter around those structures, and maybe the immediate education parts is not a license to go on patrol in the streets. Because somebody somewhere in this city might decided some point to attack a federal building. Now, the federal government also usually stands ready to assist state and local officials if they request that assistance. In this case, my understanding is Portland has not requested and then the final thing which we've seen in the last few days. Is it apparently operational. Border Patrol enforcement agents who are used to functioning at a border environment have been the kind of tip of the spear on the law enforcement presence. In Portland, and that means they're dressed in crazy military garb, and they operate with a degree of force that is appropriate in a border environment. But not you see when you're dealing with demonstrations in First Amendment rights, and I think this is trouble, a lot of people, including be honest people who used to be with the agency and people who are in the agency. Are they trained to deal with that sort of that environment. No. I mean, the whole point of these tactical border Patrol agents is they're trained to deal in an environment where you can have me up against drug gangs. There could be firearms you could be dealing with snipers are when you're really almost in a crazy I'm military situation. That is not what we're seeing important. Yes, There may be some looting, and there may be some violence and that's what police normally deal with. But it's not the kind of environment where you have hosing crazy Military force.

This country yet say country by country so this country to the extent that. You have freedom of movement so like a third of all the immigrants back in the day went back my grandparents, one and four of my grandparents went back. One died. One went back and Tuesday. So. They came over. My grandparents but when they came over. Swim and if they if they came over because they wanted this culture, which is very materialist culture. It's melting pot culture. Whatever they came over that now we have. We have refugees and wars, and we have laws of we manipulate immigration, but before we didn't so everybody here was here voluntarily, but back in their old countries there were nationalities, and that had a very strong impact, and this is why. Marxism gave way to Cultural Marxists because Marxism was about the workers of the World Unite, and it did not work they had to, so they switched it to cultural Marxism. Because identity seemed to be more powerful, but it wasn't a problem because it was consistent with national borders and I will quote Macarthur. One. Thing's for sure any country that I ever went into that didn't share. A common religion was not going to survive. The culture was even if it was rising materially, it was declining from civilization point of view, and this idea of tribalism is introduced into this country by I and I don't point George Soros for much because I think he's just a figurehead, but his mentor. The person whose ideas he is implementing is Karl Popper. Who who had this open society idea? And he said tribalism is our enemy. So what are they doing they're. They're? They're using tribalism as an excuse to institute world government, and and in order to do that. They have to get us to identify tribes. They brought identity politics to the right, and it took them a long time to do it, and that's where you're seeing this thing, but I think it's it was planted. Intentionally you know and then we go back and they say those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. You know the. The Trojan horses real thing anytime you can get anytime. You can get spas into the camp and have them look like the SPA that look like the culture that act like the culture to say the right things they can pass. They can pass. Pass next thing you know. They start opening the doors from the inside, and that's when the water comes in. It's in. There's four analogies in there and I don't know if any of them yeah. Yeah. That's what they're doing and we. We buy it, but this country isn't like we really weren't like that. And that's why it took, so it just wasn't taking. And why do we even have ideological dispute? And it's clear what our like I have a friend from Sweden, and before they really made this artificial immigration over there to cause all sorts of societal disruption. In she was telling me, they're basically all the same class and there's kind of shitting. Understand what a party was, so she'd understand I, was they all had to say. There's like six eight ten million of them. It's not so many think Rhode Island so I'm saying you if you have it, it's fine, so there's this tribe. They're all on the same page. It's fine. Why is this country why what gives the other people the right to say our constitution, our agreements that we all before all immigration laws and everything, but we had voluntarily signed up for WHO's to say that that's invalid, and now we need a fundamental restructuring of the legal architecture to quote Michael Chertoff Guy from the right. So? Say so I WANNA make sure understand this because it seems to me first of all. If you have and we have some good conversation going over on the side, you mean, bring those questions. Those comments up now. It's finished OK well, my question is. And I hope I can remember. When you have a population that small, and they all kind of looked saying they had the same coach values.

But when our culture is a culture of hundreds of different cultures with you know from wide range of poverty levels to money, some people I just think it's hard. When you say to everybody you go figure it out, yourselves the. Here's the thing I'm not for big government I. Just know that in a neighborhood if you don't which if here's the deal in my neighborhood, if I only watch out for my house that I'm not being a good neighbor and I just think there's got to be a role of government to hold us loosely together, so we can bounce around inside this thing hanging on state.

obviously we're concerned that guy you have virus at any level we may have started a little bit later for example in New York and California near four year peak may have been earlier but I did as I say we are in the process now at least the beginning to see a decline but as you point out market we do get a lot of visitors and people coming in to work who originate from other parts of the country and that means we get more vectors coming in with infection that might be the case for example in a city where you don't get a lot of people from out of state sure that presents unique set of challenges and we're trying to work with our neighboring counties in Virginia and in Maryland again to mitigate the risk as we move forward now one of the recommendations that you put forward whether or not the mayor takes it is not to fully reopen schools for in person learning until there is a vaccine how would that work what do you mean by that well the ideas and at least in stage one to have distance learning how to be done remotely began over the next two stages which means that we would have basically reduce the outbreak to isolated outbreaks during the next period of time we would slowly begin to bring students and those entering transitional grades or needing extreme structure were coming first we make sure to maintain distancing in classrooms I had to keep our the collection of people in a particular crash from below a certain number like can to make sure the shame youngsters were together throughout the day so you don't have a lot of people mixing with other groups and then to have a presence on staff people with health background and experience in case someone display symptoms or some issue arises and the idea would be eventually during the course of this time to basically re open but in a very measured and deliberate way now you as we mentioned ran homeland security one point during the bush administration Houston simulated how to respond to a pandemic is the current administration running your playbook well I mean NBA our playbook course were simply it was built about fifteen years ago I'm some of the elements of the play book I think we she running now I know for example Dr Anthony Fauci worked closely with ash twenty years ago on this and he still very much involved in engaged I think some areas where there's been a shortfall has been in the stockpiling of medical equipment and protective gear which I was not present in sufficient quantities when this began and there was a bit of a delay perhaps you recognize that we need to deal with traveling from Europe which turned out to be one of the major vectors for bringing the infection in the United States from other parts of the globe street Irish hasten to say that no price issue or emergency ever plays out exactly the way you planned with the planning should allow you to do is equip yourself and train yourself to adapt and fortunately we have professionals in the health field in a home and security who do understand how this works now it is one thing in terms of planning we're looking at is the fall the possible resurgence that could overlap with the election I know you look at election security I want to retrieve something the president tweeted this morning he said the US cannot have all mail in ballots it will be the greatest rigged election in history people will grab them from mailboxes print thousands of forgeries and forced people to sign forged names some absentee ballots may be okay when necessary but this is trying to use coded for this scam what should national security professionals be planning for the election and should it include mail in ballots I believe it should definitely include mail in ballots hi there's never been a demonstration of widespread fraud or misbehavior mailing back balance actually many years ago I prosecuted somebody who committed election fraud but it just was a handful of ballots for people who were incapacitated the the positive side of mail in ballots as it allows people to vote without putting himself at risk for long lines in a actual physical election voting sites the other thing we can do in addition to me Allen is to have many more sites for curbside voting we drive up you can deposit your ballot right on the site and it's unlocked sure having the most options possible is the best way to make sure people get to exercise are very important franchise as voters all right sector sure turned off thank you for joining us we'll be right back let's say you just bought a house the bad.
