"Discoveries from their ongoing investigation. This morning CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge on what we can expect. I think about it as a broad overview, the culmination of this month's long investigation, almost like a capstone session. Lawmakers and sources close to the committee are promising new evidence and new revelations, but interwoven with some of the themes that we've seen throughout this investigation. I think with the new emphasis on Wednesday, these connections between sort of the key figures that really drove the mob that day and how they had contacts with individuals who were close to the former president. And one of the biggest questions, of course, through all this is whether or not there's strong evidence of ties between the mob that stormed the capitol that day and those close to the former president. That's right. So what we anticipate is some documentary footage involving Roger Stone, Roger Stone is a longtime friend and adviser to former president Trump. The claim here is that he was in contact with these groups prior to January 6th. Then he predicts that there will be violence at the capitol. He's argued that these interviews and sort of this fly on the wall filming of him was taken out of context, but we'll see what's presented. And then, of course, Michael Flynn. Michael Flynn is the former national security adviser and what sort of connective tissue investigators found between him and people who really drove and incited the violence that day. So when can we expect a final report on all of this? Well, the committee is somewhat non committal. There's sort of leaving the book open, if you will. It's entirely possible that we could have an interim report even before the midterms

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn sees a new career as a political holy warrior, and Netflix is feeling the heat from Arab Muslim countries about its programming. General Michael Flynn, ladies and gentlemen. Michael Flynn, the retired lieutenant general, and former national security adviser under Donald Trump, is now focused on his next task, building a movement centered on Christian nationalist ideas, where Christianity is at the center of American life and institutions. I mean, there is a spiritual war and there is a political war. And they are going on. They're going on in this country right now. An investigation by The Associated Press and frontline found that Flynn used public appearances to energize voters and political endorsements to build alliances. Flynn has drawn together mask and vaccine opponents, insurrectionists, and Republican leaders in state and local parties, along the way, Flynn and his companies have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for his efforts. Historian Ruth Ben ghiat says his activities are dangerous. He is spearheading the attack on our democracy, which is coming from many quarters, and he is affiliated with many of these sectors from the military to Christian nationalism to election denial to extremist groups like the Proud Boys. Frontline and AP examined Flynn's rise in religion and politics, and the upcoming documentary, Michael Flynn's holy war, premiering October 18th on PBS and online.

Why MAGA Must Embrace Machiavelli In Order to WIN
"Machiavelli wrote, it is much safer to be feared than loved because love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage. But fear preserves you by a dread of punishment, which never fails. What we're about to talk about here is an uncomfortable truth for many conservatives. It's something that many people do not like to say out loud, which is only one side is playing ball right now. We're playing ping Pong and the left is playing rugby. They're playing for keeps. We're playing checkers, they're playing chess. Last night, there was an announcement from Washington Post that they are going to indict Steve Bannon for the very same charges that he was pardoned for a couple of years ago. So they raid James O'Keefe's apartment, they raid Rudy Giuliani's apartment. They go after a diary. Why is that the FBI's business? They raid Mar-a-Lago. They indict Peter Navarro. They've indicted and convicted Steve Bannon for different charges. They go after Roger Stone, they go after Michael Flynn. They go after dinesh d'souza, when are we going to wake up and realize that only one side is using political power in this country? This will not change with outrage. It won't. It won't change with op eds and us saying we need to reform the FBI. We need to have a discussion about this. This only changes when the left starts to fear that they will be in handcuffs for their crimes. Let me be very clear. I don't think we should do what the Democrats are doing where they say show me the man. I'll show you the crime. This is how they do it. This is how corrupt these people are because all they care about is power. Their Bible is the prince by Machiavelli. It is their gospel. It is their north star.

Who Is Lee Smith?
"Who is Lee Smith and how did you arrive at where you are today? So give those who are unfamiliar with you a little bit of the backstory. Yeah, well, you know, I mean, what that book is about the strong horse. I was raised in New York. I was living in New York at the time of 9 11, and I wanted to know what had happened to my hometown. And so I moved first to Egypt, then I moved to Lebanon, spent some time in Israel. Jerusalem in particular, beautiful, wonderful city Jerusalem. And Beirut tragically has been a beautiful city in the past, but now it's now it's in deep trouble and very deep waters. And Cairo has many problems of its own, but also some great important interesting people. I think that one of the most important things I think that the stuff that we saw on 9 11, and I think for both of us, our study of the Middle East and our study of these of these very ugly regimes, it's sad, but helpful. And so far as I think we learn to by looking at these regimes, we learn to recognize problems as they've arisen here in the United States. Both with the Obama administration, then with the attacks on Donald Trump, the national security apparatus designed to protect American citizens, weaponized and turned against American citizens, Donald Trump, Donald Trump aides like yourself, like Michael Flynn, and as we see Peter Navarro, Steve Bannon, and of course Trump supporters. That's what we saw with Joe Biden's very peculiar and dark speech.
Andrew McCabe: Cincinnati Shooter Is a Rallying Cry for Other Extremists
"Mccabe Andrew mccabe you know said this He said about the Cincinnati I told you earlier about the incident at the FBI Cincinnati office that happened earlier today still getting details about that But mccabe said the Cincinnati shooter could serve as a rallying cry for a similar unhinged extremist violent people If there was ever something to point to that summarizes where we are today in America it's this You've got a guy who lied to the FBI four times Who didn't go to jail didn't face legal trouble Who then got a plum job as a CNN contributor who lied to the FBI and they're going after president Trump about national archive stuff Or if you remember Peter strzok gave immunity to Hillary Clinton's people but then stuck it to Michael Flynn And I told you earlier they want this They want violence They want the midterm elections to be about this I honestly think that's part of the reason that they sent the FBI to go after president Trump I think they're trying to stir things up So unfortunately we live in a country where there is an unequal application of the law But you know in some degree that's the way it is right now We've got to fight to change it But everyone's got to be smart because this is what they want They want to make an example after you

I think you flooded the basement. Yes, I did. I did love the basement. This is a little euphemism. The kids are calling it. Did you ever think your, I don't know, not just a prosecutor as an American. You would hear a general in the United States Army like Michael Flynn take the 5th when asked, do you believe in the peaceful transfer of power in the United States of America? Why is that guy not called up in court martial number one? Thank you, Steph. I took the same military oath as general Flynn, I was an army jag back in the 80s, prosecuting court martial. Even hotter. And I'll tell you, when I saw Mike Flynn do that, I thought, you know, why in the world is the army not reactivating him, returning him to active duty and court marshaling him. Right. The only good answer I have to that question is because DoD, the Department of Defense is coordinating with DoJ the Department of Justice and civilian criminal charges will be brought against Mike Flynn. I hope. That's the only satisfactory answer to the question. Why isn't he being court martialed? Okay. Okay. There are only a few good men, by the way, that could make me come to the other side of heterosexuality and you certainly are one of them. Hey, you know what?

Justice Is Incredibly Important to Society
"Justice is incredibly important for humanity to continue. Aristotle famously said it is injustice that the ordering of society is centered. Justice is to give every man his due. The conservative base has been hungry for justice for years. For good reason because they have seen. James O'Keefe's apartment raided, Rudy Giuliani's apartment rated, the targeting of Michael Flynn, the spying of Donald Trump, and almost not even a slap on the wrist. For the people that have done much worse, but even worse, the people that were responsible for the abuse of power. The finally we're starting to see some momentum towards the conclusion of justice, Aristotle agreed justice can be the messiest of all the virtues, but it is necessary.
Corey Lewandowski: Michael Sussmann Will Get a Slap on the Wrist
"Must be a similar satisfaction that you're feeling right now in Robbie mook testifying Friday that it was actually Hillary who said give this phony story to the news media. Corey, give me your thoughts, give me your take. I know you're following this Michael sussman trial pretty closely. What's the Corey Lewandowski takeaway of what we've learned so far? Michael, here's the problem. Sussman is probably going to be found guilty of lying to the FBI because we have his text messages when he reached out to baker who at the time was the chief legal counsel for the FBI and said I'd like to come and see you and it's not for a client and it's not for a political campaign just as the goodness of my own heart. I want to share this information with you. We have that text message and that's what Durham predicated this whole follow-up on. Now what we're going to find out, though, because justice is not equally distributed, we know that Robbie milk has now said that Hillary Clinton green lit this, but that Robbie never knew it was going to go to the FBI. We were just going to give it to The New York Times. And what sussman told baker we now know was we think you should investigate this because The New York Times is about to run the store. And then baker actually called The New York Times and said, hey, please don't run the story yet because the FBI wants to track it down when the entire time Susan was a source to The New York Times. And so what's going to happen to sussman? My guess is, I get to slap on the wrist. Maybe he loses his law license for a year. Maybe he gets probation, but his life will get destroyed like Michael Flynn. He's not going to end up bankrupt. He's not going to be dragged in front of Congress like Corey Lewandowski was in front of Jerry Nadler.
John Zmirak: 'Donald Trump Should Broker Peace in Ukraine'
"John's Muir. Welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. Andy Kaufman, you sing here I've come to say the day. Exactly. That was actually that was my email. Yes. Mighty mouse is dead. It's tough. Listen on the glue trap. You've been writing a lot of a lot of stuff about the Ukraine. So the piece that you posted yesterday, brilliant concept. Let's start with that headline. Yeah, Donald Trump should broker peace in Ukraine. Donald Trump. Now, not a joke. No. I have a 100% serious. And it's not just because on some level he ought really to be president because he actually got more electoral votes and more popular votes. And the deep states stole the race in the most squalid Latin American style. And then covering it up in silence people in Eastern European totalitarian style. I mean, that's there. But really, I'm not being cynical. I don't want to use what's happening in Ukraine just for cheap domestic political gain. But I do think it will be good for America and good for Trump and good for all of us. As well. As for the people of Ukraine and the people of Russia. Because both populations matter. But before you just get into the details, are you, I mean, is it really possible that a former U.S. president could do something like this under who's a car is that work? Jimmy Carter flew around the world brokering negotiations after he was out of office. Jimmy Carter went Africa, Latin America. He had his own peace foundation. But he didn't need the permission of the U.S. government to do that. He just went and did it. That's right. And Donald Trump can do the same thing. And there is this thing called the Logan act that was used to intimidate and blackmail general Michael Flynn. But it is unconstitutional. No one has ever been successfully prosecuted under the Logan act. The Logan act was passed in something like 1801, and it was directed, I think, against Thomas Jefferson. It was in, I think. It was intended to stop Americans from engaging in diplomacy without the permission of the U.S. government.
Sara Carter: Durham Report Is Historical, Pointing Back to Clinton
"Like you I was passed a lot of stuff early on And it was difficult and it was very hard to separate the wheat from the chaff Sarah you didn't know and I'll throw it to you here I don't want to ban the rabbit The case was so incredible that it seemed almost like the more hysterical the allegations as Tucker Carlson said the other night the more true they were And you didn't know is this just crazy or what Did they were spying on Trump We have the name of the actual spy We have the azra Turk name We know about halper we know all these names and they're still pretending this thing didn't happen 100% 100% Dan And that's the thing We're looking at this indictment but you're absolutely right Step on helper The office of net assessment the Department of Defense with this office we didn't even have a full investigation yet into this area of the spy operation What happened with general Michael Flynn that wanna look over the Russian remember and all of these things that happened that they know are going to be buried away because it's so difficult for people to keep up with all of this information But what's not difficult is the essential truth And we know what that essential truth is No matter how much Teflon Hillary Clinton thinks she can put between her and the rest of the public or between her and the Department of Justice it all points directly to the clintons It points directly to Hillary Clinton And this is what Durham is saying He's putting history into a report They may not be able to take her to court They may not be able to directly pinpoint the finger at her but everybody around her was involved in an operation to spy on president Trump and worse than that It wasn't just about spying Dan You and I both know this This was a disinformation campaign To destroy and target a president of these United States

"Do the shit that this guy did. But you also have to understand Michael Flynn. There's a reason why Michael flyn wasn't a four star general. And there's a reason why Michael Flynn basically made history star and then got out. And the reason why is because when he was a two star general, if I'm correct, it was a two star general. He failed. He failed. And when you fail at that level, you don't get a second chance. When you fell at that level, you are halted from moving forward in terms of levels of responsibility. And it basically shut him down. And I believe that Michael Flynn got a bitter taste in his mouth because Michael Flynn thought, I wanted to be a four star general and I didn't get it. So Michael Flynn then thought, well, if I could get in close with this guy that's running for president, then maybe he can elevate me to where I'm even at a higher position. Michael Flynn is absolutely somebody who is power hungry and the party is he doesn't have what it takes to hold that power. That's a fact. CB says Tom Hartman who's been on the show. He's a very he's one of the most popular liberal voices that we have today says Tom Hartman described this as the last gasp of the Civil War. And you know what? It certainly seems that way, doesn't it? Well, I mean, you know, we were seeing, you know, a lot of this stuff that's coming out. What we also start to see is how race plays a big role in this. You know, and how it's like, you know, once again, when president Obama won, we all felt like we finally moved past the past. And then he was reelected. And we felt, wow, in this country, this is great. You know, not only during African American, when the presidency, but he can win reelection too. And then Donald Trump come on board and absolutely open the frigging Pandora's box and let all of these freaking toothless inbred assholes out that absolutely are as racist as they come. And Donald Trump is his racist as they come. What sad is that we have so many people in this country that fall for that bullshit. Donald Trump was the one who did not want people of color working on his hotels in the view of the people. He didn't give a shit if they were working at nighttime when nobody was there, but he didn't want people to see black people working on his hotels while the day was going up. Because why? Because Donald Trump for some reason thought that will make people think less of my establishments because Donald Trump thinks that Donald Trump is a racist. You know? And that's how it is. Donald Trump and his father were sued over trying to keep African Americans from basically living in some of their properties..

Peter Daszak: The Man Behind Anthony Fauci
"We are governed by currently in this era of public health. Put that in quotes lockdowns and draconian drank draconian ism by a group of people that was largely unknown a couple of years ago but they have come to the forefront and have more power than any other people in the history of domestic american policy. One of those people is dr peter desk. Dr peter dasent is the villain behind the villain. Is the man behind foudy. Now many people ask the question. How is it that they spied on. Donald trump the same playbook that they used spy on donald trump. And go after lieutenant general. Michael flynn is precisely the same playbook that they use to launch this fraudulent campaign saying that the chinese corona virus came from the himalayas. It came from some bat soup. I'm reading from the daily mail dot com. It was revealed earlier last year. That peter desk a british scientists with longstanding links to the wuhan institute of variety had secretly orchestrated in landmark statement in the lancet in february two thousand twenty which attacked conspiracy theories suggesting the cove in one thousand nine does not have a natural origin. The now infamous letter signed by twenty-seven seven public health experts said they stood together to strongly condemn the theories that which they said quote do nothing but create fear rumours and prejudice. See that there. You have medical scientists telling us that it creates prejudice. They also lavished praise on chinese scientists. Who said they worked. Diligently and effectively to rapidly identified a pathogen behind this outbreak and share. Their results transparently the global health community. But now the lancet which is the top level of medical discourse and publication said near agreeing to publish an alternative commentary which discusses the possibility that laboratory research might have played a role in the emergence of the sars kobe to ouchi chinese corona virus. The scientists say quote. They need to evaluate all the hypotheses on a rational basis and away their likelihood based on facts evidence devoid speculation concerning potential and possible political impacts in february two thousand twenty. They even add that that statement in part of a silencing effect on the wider scientific debate. Yeah no kidding.

Journalist Lee Smith Talks About Tucker Carlson Being Spied on by the NSA
"You have a peace out. I'm going to get to in a minute in the epic times. That is just deeply troubling and everyone should read. Folks Look at this. It's called affidavits raised more questions about the FBI about FBI's role in Trump probe. I just hit the forward, Button said. It is a terrific piece. I want to get to that in a minute. But I'd be there would be a sin if I didn't ask you first. About this Tucker Carlson case your thoughts on these allegations that the NSA has a hold of his texts or emails how this could possibly happen. Yeah, I'm actually writing about this today. So I'm glad you asked me. I look. I mean, one of the important things is all of these people who were spying on the Trump team, the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team right from the Obama White House. Many of them are back in the Biden administration, and that goes to the president himself. Remember that list of DNA released About how even Joe Biden had unmasked General Michael Flynn's name from transcript the foreign foreign intelligence intercept, So I think that we can put a lot of things together. From what you know people like you and and and me and your great listeners have been putting together for the last several years. What? What It looks like to me and actually Harmeet Dhillon, who was on Ben, who's on Tucker. Last night. She made a good point. She said something like I think this is about Um, I think this is about indirect collection and, of course, or incidental collection. What it looks like is reverse targeting. They wanted to go after Tucker and they found someone that they could legitimately, uh, quasi legitimately target. That's how they collected on Tucker. That's that's Lee. Sounds familiar, right? Sounds familiar, right? These sounds like what they did to Mike Flynn.

"Day of June, and the Justice Department's internal watchdog is investigating the record seizure of reporters and political enemies under the Trump Administration. Democrats are demanding former top justice officials testified before a Senate committee to explain why the IPhone records of representatives Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell. Both Democrats and their family members were secretly subpoenaed in 2018. The Justice Department also secretly sought the phone and email records of the president's own White House counsel. Don McGahn. Swalwell, telling CNN on Sunday that he didn't believe the claims from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Former Eggy Bill Barnes, former deputy A G Rod Rosenstein that They were unaware of those subpoenas in which they were requesting metadata from Apple. So who, uh, gave the go ahead to issue them is what Swallow wants to know. That's a question that I would like answered and knowing that my cell phone records chairmanships records were a part of a grand jury investigation and again what I hope troubles people, especially Donald Trump supporters. Is that they themselves probably fear abuses by big brother. And now you see that the biggest brother the United States government has ever seen as Donald Trump, who would go after his enemies, Whether it's don McGahn Mr Schiff myself. And reward his friends like reducing the sentences of Roger Stone and making the investigation and the guilty plea from Michael Flynn. Go away. That's just no way that we would want to operate in these United States. Trump's former attorneys general and deputy, A G all claim they're telling people around them, according to sources I've spoken with that they were unaware that you and ship were ensnared in this probe. What do you say to that? Don't buy it. That's not the way the department works. I know from my experience on the intelligence committee that For special matters, whether it involves the members of Congress or senior members, you know, in the press that this would go to the attorney general's office, But Pam I also want people to know I'm not above the law. If I do something wrong, just like any American. My records, you know, with a warrant should be reviewed, but I've been on the intelligence committee going on seven years now, and I've been around before This investigation took place where there were leaks. Unfortunately of classified information, information that I and many others knew about. And no investigation into me or others took place. That's why it looks so targeted that it was time to when chairmanship myself. We're raising concerns about President Trump's connections to the Russians. Yeah. Apple informed Trump Counsel Don McGahn and his wife last month, it complied with the subpoena for information about accounts that belonged to them again cooperated extensively with Mueller's investigation. Taking a look at the markets this morning. They rose as investors internationally anyway as investors look ahead to this week's Fed Reserve meeting for hints of possible changes in ultra low interest rates and other economic stimulus. Markets were closed in China and Hong Kong, but we're up elsewhere, Trading has been muted as investors that look ahead for signs of whether central bankers are turning more hawkish, especially following the 5% increase in inflation. No policy changes are expected, of course, but Any shift in language could fuel fears, bond purchases or other stimulus will wind down and that's what the investors are really keeping an ear out for if you will. President. Biden says he's satisfied with a group of seven statement on China even though it does not go as far as he wanted it to. He reportedly urged allies to take a stronger stand against China's forced labor practices. The Communicate that was issued at the end of their G seven meeting didn't explicitly do that. Still, the president said he's satisfied with the outcome. I think, China I know this is gonna sound somewhat prosaic, but I think we're in a contest not with China.

From police 17 hundreds that's never been used since 18 50. That's the ticket. Is that where we are Dave? That's exactly where we are. But right, they break it up. So bite brings up the low act in the Logan Act, basically, What it says is that if you're a private citizen of the United States, you can't enter into negotiations with another country on behalf of the U. S. Okay. What it doesn't say, though, is that the national security advisor isn't allowed to have conversations with other countries. So So anyway, So they have this determination. They want to get Flynn. But then they realized that's not probably gonna work out. So later on the FBI bigwigs decided that they were trying to nail plant in a perjury trap. So they sent over. A couple of crooked FBI agents did Michael Flynn's office at the White House after he had already moved in, and Trump had been inaugurated. And they told me to meet a lawyer or anything, and we just need to clear up a few things. So they decided they wanted to lay a perjury trap for Michael Flynn, because here's the thing, Michael once you if you ask questions And you won't know the answers to those questions. And you have somebody a question. You're basically hoping that the light you're laying a perjury trap for the person. They already had The transcript of Michael Flynn's call with this Russian ambassador. So they didn't really need to ask what he said during the phone call they already knew. So they went into his office, and they asked him about whether he had discussed, uh, sanctions with Sergei Kislyak and Flynn was like I maybe I don't know. Probably not. I don't remember. I mean, who remembers even said he goes. Look, I've had conversations with probably 30 different country. I'm not sure So when the FBI agents left Flynn's office, they didn't think he looked like they think he'd lied. So no crime had been committed. Embarrassed, noting they didn't show up and tell him he was under investigation. He wasn't given the opportunity to have a lawyer present He thought he was being a team player is part of the government during a transition. And being completely honest with these folks, even in not recalling so he had no reason to believe that what they were really trying to do was send this man to prison. Right. And you You have nailed that right on the head. He had no idea He was a suspect of any crime. He had no idea He was under investigation, and he 100% thought they were all on the same team. He thought they just filling in a few holes for them so they could do their job and support. He had no idea and so they went back. And now the Here's where it really gets bad. Peter's frog fills out what's called a form 302 or three Oates, who is the official record that's made by the investigating agents of an interview with somebody who's under investigation. 302. Typically, I mean, They don't electronically record these interviews. It's all done by memory and written and type out after the fact and they've got five days to turn in in. Well, nobody to this day has ever seen the original three of two. That was done that what the transcription of the, uh, interview with General Flynn and so struck rewrote it. He wrote that he got together with his mistress. This FBI lawyer, Lisa Paige. And they rewrote the 302 to fit a narrative that they wanted it to fit. It was a fake 302 and so generous so then General foot. That's that's what really started pushing the snowball down the hill. And once you know he was then he was charged with lying to the FBI. And, uh, you know, he hired these These lawyers who were never Trumpers, and they basically drained him of everything he ever owned. Put him 4 to $5 million dead. He had to sell his home and everything else to try to fight this because you've been charged with lying to the FBI. Talk, but they realized there was no Logan Act violation. So they tried to claim that he lied about whether he discussed sanctions with this Russian ambassador, which he didn't Lie about anything but Federal prosecutors made a deal with General Flynn if he would plead guilty to lying to the FBI. They would destroy his son, Michael Flynn Jr. Who they were trying to paint as an agent of Turkey. Everybody to these people if it's some sort of foreign agent under mine.

I can't put a book out about this story not have the end. And so they literally stop the printing presses. It's like Stop! There's a guy with the cap in the printing room, yelling Stop! The presses s so I had to write a new chapter of the book. I went back and change some things and I had to add an entire new chapter. And so that pushed the hardcover version back into February. But the good news is the electronic one. Come 12 days. Is Flynn aware that you're writing this book? We reached out. Um, we have had people reaching out to him to his lawyer. Sydney pals tried reaching out to a son. Um, unfortunately And I totally understand that they just you know, didn't get back to us on anything. Which I get because at the time we reached out He had the process was still sort of hanging in the balance, So he really couldn't say anything anyway. So quite frankly, I don't know. I hope so. Because it Zoe solid portrayal of what he went through. Did we did a ton of research on this and The man venison. He committed no crime. And I certainly hope that this book and forms people who maybe didn't know that General Flynn is a patriot who deserves our respect, And he's earned it. Well. Not only is there his image that deserves To be fairly portrayed and protected and resurrected. There is the fact that a process that could do that to him conduce that to anyone and people need to understand what happened here at the in the highest halls of Of power. So that this doesn't happen again. Well, that's just it. That's just it, Michael. The Yeah at the highest levels of government take a very complicated and very convoluted plot to destroy an innocent American citizens. Was being waged all because they didn't like somebody's politics. It's disgusting, and it could happen to any one of us well, and if he weren't Michael Flynn, and he didn't have such a distinguished and honorable career. And some friends in high places, including a president, he was getting ready to serve in the White House. Um then he probably would have just played out and going to prison and how many other people have that happened to them?.

"At least for the first day, and attorney General bar steps down what is left on the agenda in the waning days of the Trump administration. From New York. Welcome to the second hour Bloomberg Balance of Power I'm David Weston. President. Trump announced last evening that his attorney General Bill Bar, will be stepping down next week, and his deputy, Jeff Rosen, would replace him as acting attorney general. The move did not come as a big shock, given how the president reacted even just two weeks ago. This is what he said when he was asked if he had confidence in Mr Barr. Ask me that in a number of weeks from now they should be looking at all of this fraud. Talk about the bar legacy. And what could be left for Mr Rosen to take on We welcome now. The attorney General of the District of Columbia, his Karl Racine. Thank you very much, Mr Cheney. Jennifer being with us. So it does raise questions about what Mr Rose is to be called upon to do And for that matter, and this is pure speculation why Mr Barr might have wanted to get out of Dodge. Well, it does. And you know, I think really, All we can do is speculate. Er, take a hunch. Let's be clear Attorney General Bar during his nearly two years tenure as attorney general. President Trump has done all of his bidding. The rule of law has been severely compromised. There's been interference with ongoing criminal cases in an unprecedented way with respect to Michael Flynn. And so in a real way, the Department of Justice has been badly damaged. I worry quite honestly, that Ours. Resignation is a harbinger for things that might come That even bar couldn't stomach what those are. I don't exactly know, but it gives me no confidence whatsoever. At the Department of Justice is going to tilt immediately towards rule of law. Well, one thing we do know about presidents in the very last days of the administration is they can grant pardons and let's be frank. Many presidents have not all in recent years have done just that. So one question might be Issuing apartment partners. Now a president could do that his own without the attorney general, right? That's correct. There used to be a pretty elaborate process in the Department of Justice, where there's a pardon attorney who had meticulously with her team go through. Pardon request. Then make recommendations to the attorney general and then to the White House counsel. That, of course, has shifted dramatically. It appears now that the Pardon process on Lee has one voice and that is the voice of the president, United States. Another thing that we expect from presidents throughout the 10 year, but perhaps particularly toward the end are executive orders. And we said have already out of President Trump, since the election, frankly of executive has been granted. Does the attorney general have a role in passing on those? Well, the attorney general, certainly as the leader of the Department of Justice runs a section called the Office of Legal Counsel. Traditionally again that Eyes quite prestigious, calls it as it sees it, and really on Lee sanctions or endorses executive orders that it believes is our constitutional Once again we've seen with this president and his Department of Justice and his Attorneys general that they literally will write almost anything on an executive order without regard to legality. I know a little bit about this because I've sued the president numerous times. Regarding his executive orders. Other colleagues of mine have done the same thing. And I'm here to tell you that it was you about lawsuits against President Trump reveal that We've won 80% of those actions, and those decisions have been made by Republican judges as well as democratically appointed judges. And so what? That 80% Victory rate shows is that the president is truly engaged in a lawless action and he's gotta be checked in balance by the courts. The very court That stood up and rejected the president's attempt along with the Texas attorney general to interfere with the national election. Mr Churchill you mentioned that you take some issue with much of the legacy of Bill bars a train general, do you give him some credit? For coming out and quite publicly, saying that he could not find evidence of systemic fraud in the election that it was nothing that would turn around the election. And for that matter, President Trump has been fairly critical about the fact that he did not reveal an ongoing investigation. Of President Biden. Son Hunter. Do you give him some credit for those two things? You know, I guess you have to give some credit. When the attorney general follows the law used to be the norm. That Attorney general followed the law and that expectation Was not necessarily met with lot of toy comments. Yes, I give him credit for that. But I also look at the entire tenure and the entire tenure of Attorney General Baugh really reveals that he did. President Trump's bidding. Almost at every turn against their a couple of points of law that he felt uncomfortable with and then go ahead and give him credit for those two points. So let's conclude here talking about you as I understand it. As President Biden comes into office on January January 20th. You're going to be ascending to become the 2021, president of the National Association of Attorneys General. Tell us about that position and what you would like to accomplish with it. Thank you. It's really a privilege for the District of Columbia to have. It's a G A. Z, the president of the National Association of Attorneys General, which is a bipartisan organization. Comprised of 56 state and territorial attorneys general. So the president of mag is what we call it has an opportunity to identify an initiative and focus the room while 56 stages. On that initiative. What I'll be focused on is a huge problem in the United States, and we're seeing it literally every day, and that is hate. And what underlies the hate. As we know over the last four years, coinciding, of course with President Trump's tenure, hate crimes have gone up dramatically on that means murders killings. And threatening actions. You need to look any further than the tree of life Synagogue and Pittsburgh Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina, the holistic shooting of nearly two dozen Mexican Americans. In El Paso, Texas, to know that America has a hate problem, and I look forward to really addressing the roots of our hate so that We can finally get our.
