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. Because peter dasent inserted themselves under orders from bouchier he is the pulp fiction equivalent of mr wolf.
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.

They were told on that coal. That shots had already been fired. There were reports of shots fired already but still the army on that call told capital.

Six part of that decision to deny national guard support to the capital wallet was being violently attacked. But the army's repeated denials that he had nothing to do with that decision that he wasn't in that meeting that he wasn't on the call. Those relies general.

"michael flynn" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"Law firms filing cases on his behalf. None of which will lead to the sort of fraud that Giuliani has since been talking about Trump and tell this document, obviously because there isn't any evidence that that occurred. Those lawyers dropped off overtime after losing cases and after became apparent that they're being asked to do the impossible. So the team that narrowed down to Giuliani and Jenna Alice had worked with this campaign. Sidney Powell preeminently among them. Powell it's worth noting had come from defending Michael Flynn, where she Michael Flynn sort of changed lawyers midstream. How will I encouraged him to retract his guilty plea in the in the whole Russia probe thing that he was involved in her work for Flynn was also sort of suspect, and she's been tied to Q and on and you know, for all these reasons, I think it was an odd choice in general. I know I'm giving you more background and he actually asked for, But it's important have that context because then she comes joined for legal team. Stands alive alongside Rudy Giuliani last week of this press conference really does make truly bizarre allegations about what happened. But allegations which are no less wrong than the ones are being made by Rudy Giuliani. She went on to sort of attract a lot of attention for what she said. I think that's probably what doomed her. Yeah, I mean, part of what she said. And, you know, I think one of the big parts is that she started saying that there's Republican governors like I think those Republican governor Brian Camp, saying that he might have been involved in some of this. I think those were kind of those steps that took it a little too far. But I mean her overall thing and help me walk through this part of the two just because you know you have to understand what it is. She's alleging some elaborate conspiracy that could include the former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who died in 2013 that's connected with these demeaning voting systems that these were changing all sorts of votes from President Trump to Joe Biden. So this is kind of the over our key thing. And now she was saying that you know some of the governors. Republican governors were also taking Kickbacks payments to help with this whole effort. Her theory was that yes, there is voting machines that could be manipulated to change voting results and that people paid for the privilege to have that done and that this was tied back to Venezuela. That's generally her argument. It's total and utter nonsense from start to finish. I mean, from the standpoint that the Dominion Machines weren't used his wife as she claims to the fact that they don't have the capability that she alleges the fact that doesn't make any sense that if the whole point is they're committing this fraud by changing ballots. Why do they need to do this? They have these electric machines in the first place to the whole point. About Venezuela. There was a company called Smartmatic, which was formed by Venezuelan interest that owned a different company, then gave up that company, which Dominion later bought. That's the connection to bend. Will it mean so it's not even any sort of direct link? It's just old, absolute. Garbage and only that absolute garbage, But it's obviously garbage in the same way that the delegations I hey, you know, I hasten to bring it back to Giuliani everything, Giuliani said It's similarly garbage but is less sort of bizarre outside the box and what Powell's been alleging. To that point Also, you know, Fox News who has been kind of touting some of this stuff. Tucker Carlson on that network gave Sidney Powell the chance to come on the show and explain it. He asked for evidence. She didn't supply it, and then he had to go on Aaron say, Well, there is no evidence there. So you know, there's a lot kind of going back and forth. What did the legal team actually say about you know when they tried to distance themselves from her? I mean, it just sort of a curt statement saying that she wasn't part of the team. She was sort of working on her own behalf unless it includes unclear whether or not they were trying to alleged that she had never worked with the legal team, which obviously is hard to defend, or whether they were saying they sort of cut her loose at that point. Your point out boxes is important. I think one of the issues here is Tucker Carlson's very much wanted her to be present him with something he could use. All right. He's been absolutely amplifying a lot of other claims, including these nonsense claims about dead people having voted you got called up for one such incident in which the person wasn't that all dead, and he had to apologize on their He wanted this to be true. And I think part of the challenge of Paul Hat is Giuliani's been playing this game for a long time. A lot of parents is on a lot of cable news networks. He knows how to say just enough to have people consider him to be somewhat credible, without actually revealing that he doesn't have any evidence undergirding what he's saying Powell. I don't think knew how to do that. And so I think she was sort of presented with What a lot of other contact someone from Trump's team could come to Fox is a we've got these allegations Wanna raise here is just enough to keep you on the hook and then get on Air. Powell, I think just didn't know how to play that game and the way land where we are. What does the trump legal team have left in the tank? I mean, as I mentioned their suffering a lot of losses in court, nothing's panning out for them. Really, What else that can they resort to right now? I don't know. They keep losing cases it is. I think they're one in 34. As of this moment in terms of their legal case record, and the one win was that they had sort of the window of considering votes scale back from nineties a three day something along those lines. They don't have a lot of options because they don't have a lot of evidence because this didn't happen, right. I mean, that's that's a through line. So Donald Trump Said before the election. That's the only way he would lose is if there was fraud, and now he's trying to prove that the only way lost his fraud. But there's no evidence board. So you know now we're hearing reports of NBC News, for example, that Trump is sort of frustrated. This is a legal team in general, but there's no one who could win this because it didn't happen. Okay? You know, I mean, it's not like Hey, You know I'll qualify that on Lee moderately by saying, you know who knows? Maybe some massive evidence will emerge. It's showing that something suspect had occurred. But we hadn't seen any of that. And so any lawyer who was trying to defend Donald Trump on the mirror to something that's a false or unprovable is not going to be successful. And if the only people who are willing to stand up for you are people like Rudy Giuliani, who will just say what you want him to say. Yeah, He's not gonna do a good job because what he's gonna say are things that courts are gonna throw out the bump. National correspondent of The Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank fuck. Are you listening for.
Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser
"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

"You had a prosecution of Michael Flynn on the basis of the Logan Act, which has not been used since its inception. On the basis that Michael Flynn held a phone call that the intelligence community had a transcript of and did not contain any wall breaking material. He was talking with the Russians before the actual transition of power. This was used as the intelligence community's weapon against Michael Flynn to prosecute him and then basically put him in a hellish situation for 3.5 years. That was not a problem. But Trump's filing lawsuits in Pennsylvania huge Republican in problem Okay? Sure. By the way, if you think that our intelligence agencies were not politicized, let me just point out that Andy McCabe in the same hearing suggested that President Trump has been boosting white nationalist terrorist says a good time Here is Andy McCabe yesterday. When the president makes the kind of comments that he did, and I'm sure you're familiar with him that A particular right wing group should stand back and stand by. Do those kinds of comments have an effect on those groups and encouraging them? They absolutely do favorable references, shout outs and comments to these fringe groups have the effect of confirming their beliefs. Unbelievable. I mean, can I just point out one second that in that debate, it was Joe Biden, who brought up the proud boys from had no idea who they were from, like Proud boys Proud. Who? What? Stand back and stand it. What he meant was is that we said at the time. It's just another one of those media myths that have been spun out of control. Like he didnt condemn white supremacy about Charlotte, Still at any time was just a lie. And now there's a media myth. That that Trump basically told the proud boys to stand by while he got them ready for action. He meant standby and stand. He meant stand back and then, like, don't interfere, right? I mean, he literally was like Standby. Standby means two things right. Standby means stand by for further action. It also means like standby as in Get out of the way. It's pretty obvious what Trump was saying, But everybody decided to deliberately misinterpreted so that we could call him white supremacist. These political actors were ahead of our intelligence institutions that is a disaster area. How many people blew out their credibility over the last four years in pursuit of orange man, bad money. Our intelligence community. James Comey. Well respected public figures. James coming, Andrew McCabe. Peter struck. Entire mainstream media, which continues to maintain by the way that it was not a problem at all that the intelligence community politicized itself radically. The real problem is, you know what anything is justified in pursuit of large and that That's the media decided the day after the election and really during the election of 2016, they decided any activity in pursuit of orange man bad was justified. Doesn't matter what it is targeting your coworkers fine. Suppressing news totally fine. Calling it a coup. But it's not a coup when Trump files lawsuits find anything is justified. And now here's the problem. The grift is coming to an end, because if, In fact Trump is not certified the winner of the election in December by the electors, if, in fact the electric motor Joe Biden Then what you will end up with Is Donald Trump, not In the crosshairs anymore. It'll turn out that he was never a threat to the republic will turn out in fact, that the threat to the republic was all of the people who thought that they could violate all the rules and tear down all the laws in pursuit of the devil. What if the devil wasn't the devil? What if you were the Devil, Ala. What if you were the baddies? One of the Intel community was not going after Orange Man bad They were the bad guys. What if it turns out that the media we're not going after a unique threat to America, they were, in fact unique threat to America. That's why they have to maintain this lie that we're seeing right now that Trump is threatening the republic by calling for a legal process and vote counting and in preventing voter fraud. That's why they have to say it's unique threat to the republic. No matter how it ends. We all know where this goes. Once the election is certified, we all understand what happens next.

The gentleman from Ohio Mr Jordan for his opening statement, Spying. That one word. That's why they're after you, Mr Attorney General. 15 months ago, April 10th 2019 and a Senate hearing. You said this sentence quote. I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal. Spying on a political campaign is a big deal. It sure is. Since that day. Since that day. When you had the courage to state the truth, they attack you. They've been attacking you every sense every day every week. For simply stating the truth that the Obama Biden administration spied on the Trump campaign one year ago, New York Times Headline said this one year ago quote FBI Sin investigator posing as assistant to meet with Trump aide and 2016 The FBI sent a young lady who used the name as returned to meet Papadopoulos in September 2016. He said, someone pretending to be someone else to meet a person associated with the Trump campaign. I know what they call that. Know what they call that? Spying one month later October 2016. They use the dossier and violent Carter Page. The salacious on verified dossier. Jim Comey's words, not mine. They took it to the FISA court didn't tell the courts that the Clintons paid for. It didn't tell the court that the guy who wrote the document, Christopher Steele had already communicated to the Justice Department that he was quote desperate to stop Trump from getting elected. Guess what. There were 15 more lies that they told the court. 17 and total there outlined by the inspector general each and every one of them in his 400 page report. But guess what? Chairman matter refuses to allow Mr Horowitz to come here and testified and answer our questions. About the 17 lies the Obama Biden administration told to the Secret Court. Obama Biden. DOJ opened the investigation in July. They used a secret agent Lady to spy on Papadopoulos in August. They lied to the FISA court in September, and they did all this without any basis for launching the investigation to begin with. How do we know that? How do we know there was no basis They told us They didn't want to tell us. But thanks to Ric Grenell, who released the transcripts of their testimony. We now know there was no basis for them to start the investigation. The first place Sally Yates Roads that Samantha Power Susan Rice. Here's what Susan Rice says. I don't recall intelligence, I would consider evidence of a conspiracy. How about James Clapper? I never saw any direct evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election. Say that again. I never saw evidence that the Trump campaign was conspiring, and yet they investigate him. There was never a proper predicated. So why they do it? There was no reason to do it. Why they do it. They told us that too. Peter struck August 2016. Asked is Trump Goingto Win? What's his response? Member. This is Peter struck this guy who ran the investigation. No, no, he's not. Well, stop it. August, Peter Struck says We'll stop Trump. September They spy on Papadopoulos October They used the fake dossier delight of the court. But guess what happens in November. Guess what happens in November November 8 2016 the American people get in their way. 63 million of them to be exact. Not now. Everything changes. Now the real focus is wow, Wait a minute. We didn't stop him. He won Now what do they have to dio? They have to do the cover up. And who do you have to go? After whose target number one in their cover up. The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the guy who's about to become national security advisor to the president of the United States. Michael Flynn. They can't have him hanging around. Cause he'll figure it out. So they decide to go after Michael Flynn. Three star general served our country for over three decades, and we know they went after him because they told us that to Bill Priest up head of counterintelligence at the FBI the day they interview Flynn January 24 2017 his notes say, what? What's our goal? To get Clint to live so we can prosecute him or to get him fired. Think about what the Obama Biden DOJ what their administration did. In the last month. The last month they were in power. January 4th. The agents investigating Flynn want to drop the case. Comey tells him no. January 50 had the now famous meeting in the Oval Office. Obama, Biden, Rice, Comey, Oliver in there, They're plotting their strategy. How they're going to get flan January 6. Comey goes up to Trump Tower BRIEFS President elect Trump On the dossier that they already know is false, just so they could link it to the press, and the press will write the story that they breathe the president on the dossier. Then, of course, January 24th the day they go set up, Michael Flynn. Set up Michael Flynn in his interview. Guess what else they did. Guess what else they did between Election Day and Inauguration Day. That too much time. Guess what else they did. 38 people 49 times unmasked Michael Flynn's name.

"To what's happened Michael Flynn let's reset the stage because we did talk about the last segment and we got six for making phone calls about this the judge in the case judge if itself it is a federal court judge District Court judge DC I oversee the Michael Flynn case issued what's called a minute orders very short but it does have a lot of citations it some interesting was to say the least read the beginning given the current posture of this case is the Michael Flynn case the court anticipates that individuals and organizations will seek leave of the court to file a because you're a brief but pursuant to local rule seven there is no and now his rule in the local criminal rules but the local civil rules govern all proceeds the U. S. District Court for the district Columbia he talked about what it because for if it is because it doesn't represent the parties this opens it up to even at the District Court level not on a sub issue really I mean I guess is that the issue is that is released it's not about whether Michael Flynn's guilty about the issues is the department justice making the right decision but it's opening up to groups like us hi but that's not who the focus is the focus is clearly on his Watergate prosecutors have already supported the impeachment of president trump they've already notified the court said that they were a file so we know what this is all about this is it this will be that's just a tackle Michael Flynn yet again but it allows more partisan politics in our federal courts on forty of the criminal matter the criminal batter but it's going to be to tackle the department justice to bill Barr no I think that's exactly right in into you you've got the most experience as a U. S. attorney among our group here at it seems like to me that's what this is yes it clearly is an attack on the prosecutorial discretion of the executive branch of government through the Attorney General bill bar and the ride of a the the government to make prosecutorial decisions as to who to prosecute and who not to prosecute and it is not within the province of the judiciary that then on a motion to withdraw his guilty plea to take a poll which is what he's doing come one come all and let's hear from you and see what you got to say and then I'll make a decision whether I'm going to send this man or not that is not the function of the U. S. district judge this is the first time I have ever heard of a judge injecting himself into a criminal case in this matter without simply saying the government doesn't want to prosecute the government has the right to see starter prosecution the government has a right to seize the prosecution all right folks were take your phone calls one hundred sixty four thirty one ten let's get a role in Illinois online five rolled takes hold on you're on the air okay all right do you guys think that two quick questions Balkan burger Flynn claim incompetent ineffective counsel my complaint is that was already part of his right I mean that's part of his case he switch councils that run he so he has already already I don't know he's argued it has a house in that yet they were not effective will tell you that but that's not what's in city thousand a phenomenal job that's not this case but right I mean that's what this is about the you know this is about the plea itself not that but that plea was entered into under the previous council yeah so I mean we're the glue caller raises a good point could an ineffective assistance of counsel claim be racism thing like this and and it may be I I'm I'm I'm talking to I'm getting emails as well on the phone right now I'm here I'm getting emails Andy from former U. S. attorneys an assistant US attorney some from the tax division people want to want to write on this well I mean you you know you can raise a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel pretty much any time you can do it in a habeas corpus proceeding after the plea and sentence has been entered by the court but that's that's not the issue.

Like I get, you've been waiting your stress or whatever and this one woman's like trying to keep her out and then this other. This other woman takes a swing at her. Some ship pops up, but then you hear all these other people in the back like crowing at the employees of this red lobster like it's not hard enough to be working right now they're. They're being like I've been waiting for three hours for food first of all if you were wait, what's your dumb as doing waiting there for three hours? If it's that important, you can just say I need a refund, I'm out, but I think this, this crowd particular looks like they got off to seeing. These mostly will look like people of color working this. This red lobster and I think they were just being like. Oh, now I get to yell at people who already stressed out in working conditions that are unsafe. Now want to add to that my. Where's my fucking? Cheddar Bay biscuits bullshit are bad nonsense, so you know it's it's just another moment. another snapshot in the tension country The Karen figure is the one who throws the first like wild punch.

Man, some bay. Some? Base Dirty Bay Water Bay. I don't know some old BASAM. Tampa Bay Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, or both trending probably for good reasons right because they were brought to justice, and the everything is right in the prevailed. It's kind of like a flip flop. Where on one hand Paul Manafort is out of prison right now he's been released because wide. Yea, man, because I love trump, and I have secrets that will damage him. Relief. From. Me? I will fake having covid nineteen. So He's been sent home to do his like prison sentence from his house, but the thing is like the DOJ was like we gotta look at cases and people who are vulnerable like their federal penitentiaries, like in Lompoc in L. in like in the area in southern California. Where there are cases of Covid, where they're not being so hospitable to these people, the facility Paul Manafort's and there's not even reported cases of Covid in there, so it just adds insult to injury on top of like I think there are other standards like if you had already served a majority of your sentence or less than eighteen months left to serve, you could be released. He didn't even meet those guidelines so again. It's just like some nice shoulder rubbing from the Department of Justice, and that brings us to Michael Flynn who we talked about how the DOJ dropped their case against Michael Flynn even though he had confessed twice. And the judge basically was like on on not so fast. Basically, what he's doing is allowing amicus briefs or outside groups to file like their arguments against Michael Flynn so the judge is trying to slow that process down at a minimum, but yeah, that's where that's where the Michael. Flynn cases so a judge at least that, but we'll see what happens there, so, is this a different judge? This is a conflicting judge. WHO's no? It's the judge presiding. Presiding over the case like so once they heard they're like okay. That's your deal. Then took a second, and then next point was like okay. Well I think there may be other people who may want to not want to drop this case and may want to actually see this thing out, and then finally we have something that I think a trend. That I think we're all involved with. We're all guilty of tweeting and that is Hashtag Subpoena Obama. Obama Gate? It's the biggest political scandal of all time. It puts Watergate shame and makes Watergate looks small. These are all things. Trump has said while being nonspecific what Obama did. Yeah! It's just it's stupid. There's just like about like how how dare President Obama as president. Figure out what person? What may have been doing kissy face with the Russians. To subvert our electoral process and that's how did he? What did you do? Again. Obama's has been back in the news because he you know white. America hasty here, a man of colors opinion on what trump's doing, but he was like this is a this response, basically not good. McConnell's like shut his mouth. Did you really yeah, you're keep his mouth shut. Keep his mouth. Wow because they say no like an insult set trump off. That's why he's think about. Obama y'all this shit fucking. It's just so messy and dark and not addressing. What's actually happening right now that it's just really odd. And the other thing was like. People in the white.

S. state F. federal law that criminalizes negotiation by an authorized member negotiation by other I authorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.

"Welcome back at the improv show and leave a spoken about the case against general Michael Flynn on the last couple of shows and we're going to be joined by a famed former Harvard law for a law school professor Alan Dershowitz momentarily but I just want to start with that something that be a lawyer we spoke with yesterday and yesterday show Adam mill had to say about the Flynn case and the F. B. I.'s handling of it something that I don't think has gotten enough attention in the conversation about the FBI's handling of the case too much focus on the of the notes that were released last week the editing of those notes the predicate for even interviewing Flynn in the first place but what about this one is being accused of lying about a conversation with the Russian ambassador and that is all supposedly on audio tape somewhere but you know what they've never allowed Flynn or his attorneys to listen to the audio tape will read the transcripts so not only did the edit the statement that they say is a lie they won't listen to them they won't let him listen to what it is they said he said in the first place well have to totally rely on their faith in on faith that what the what he did was wrong or what do you what they say he did he actually did well let's begin there with Alan Dershowitz the Felix Frankfurter professor of law emeritus at Harvard Law School author of guilt by accusation the challenge of proving innocence in the age of hash tag me too who also penned a piece on the Michael Flynn case of the hell dot com that I referenced previously professor Dershowitz thanks again for joining us appreciate it hello my pleasure one point you know I made my book now available free on kindle for all of us were locked in and have nothing to read okay great your little board just press a button on kindle you get killed by accusation cook very very good guy I've got backstage for free on kindle the just if you would react to what Adam mill had to say about about that tape that that is alleged to exist but nobody other than the F. you guys allowed to listen to it well you know what's happening is conservatives who for years have been not the strongest supporters necessarily the rights of people charged with crimes have now do it with the few remaining real liberals like me saying what I've been saying because fifty years and that that is you cannot trust law enforcement without having checks and balances the FBI has been doing this for years and years and years Marroquin cases worse than almost anything I've seen but for example when you go into an interview with the FBI they will not allow you to bring a check recorder they will not allow you to take notes they will not record the conversation so that it's always going to be the work of three FBI agents against the word of one person that happens all the time it happened with Martha Stewart it happened with so many other people you have to rely on the FBI and it's a scandal because generally FBI agents truthful and very often criminal defendants are not but that's not older you can establish under due process so it's it's a terrible thing when a defendant can't listen to his own words of a woman tell you what I meant by that well you took it out of context you misinterpreted it sometimes there's even a transcription error I've seen those when it when conversations notes to transcribe it here already we know they're going to give the Asians between the three of tunes and what may have actually occurred so what we're seeing now is a microcosm of a problem that the FBI has had for many years not only the FBI but law enforcement in general look but yeah it is a wonderful people I have had friendships with FBI agents I once had my life threatened and I had two FBI agents with me for days and days I love the F. B. I. but all law enforcement has to be subject to tax yeah I mean it's just right it's just the rules of the game need to be fair and due process these beaver respected and it's clear that's not the case here and by the way I mean just a both on both in terms of the the honesty of FBI agents well I mean Andy McCabe disclosed in his interview that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn body was telling the truth that's number one number two with respect to the note was disappointed yes as you know they were out to get him all right we know that at least some of the people was saying had previously said we need a lot weaker turns policy prompted me to get him as you know the bottom line is that flows into the car people don't understand the law of perjury or false statements he is going to sound strange when I say it is not a crime to lie to the FBI it is not a crime to lie to the grand jury last July's material let me give you an exact way just professor professor different but let's break right there because that's a great team and then we'll come back on the other side and you'll explain what you mean when you say it's not a crime to lie to the FBI not a crime to lie to the grand jury more with former Harvard law professor.

W. bush taking over for Reagan were Veep wins and and carries on no this is a new administration coming in that's going to have very different policy than the former administration those agents sitting in front of you that you don't answer to them and you don't have to answer questions to them you don't have to tell them anything unless the president wants you to right you don't have to answer them truthfully now unless you they it's made clear to you this is part of an investigation thanks to a runner interviewing you officially as a part of this investigation you should know that and that this could be material that is used for that investigation the fact of the matter is it was a set up it has been all along just like the trump tower meeting with vessel let's die why would you send trump junior all those emails saying Hey we got somebody who's got dirt on Hillary what you because you want trump junior to show up to that meeting it had nothing to do with dirt on Hillary it had to DO with Russian adoption that was a set up to make it look like something was going on look he met with a Russian at trump tower.

"Being general Michael Flynn. and when you think now what we know now and and what we didn't know what the time about general Flynn it is it is stunning. and if this is how we're going to treat people that put their their lives in harm's way for us we've got a big problem because initially we believed and discovered that yeah they probably. had in fact. veiled on mass and even leaked raw intelligence involving general Flynn that was our belief in the beginning I'm trying to go back and into the recesses of my mind and figure this all out where what started when and where but then we had may cave and call me involved and bragging. how they literally took advantage of chaos. amber James call me said when he testified before Congress that in fact he did something he would never do no I'm sorry this wasn't before Congress this was in an interview on stage and he actually said this is something I wouldn't do to the either the bush or the Obama administration's and yeah I absolutely took advantage of the chaos that took place in the trump White House on day four of the trump presidency yeah I might have found it hard to imagine two FBI agents ending up in the same room how did that happen. I sent them. something we. we wouldn't have daughter maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation more organized administration in the George W. bush administration for example or the Obama administration the protocol two men and all of a seven. increased appreciation for the last two years..

"While we to kill the weapons. Bacher takes a little while longer. Get to the point man. There. It goes. Okay. I like it. Okay. So this story we still, I want to talk to New York about this as well, just months cooperation agreement with Muller, Michael Flynn sent an unsolicited text message to one of Trump's top allies in congress. Matt gaetz urging him to keep the pressure on you stay on top of what you're doing. Your leadership is so vital for our country. Now, he wrote keep the pressure on. It's unclear if Muller was aware of Flynn's, outraged. The lawmakers particularly one of the special counsel, top antagonists on Capitol Hill. I still don't know. W T, F would Michael Flynn. So this is like, right? Manafort was cooperating, and yet at the same time sharing information. Right. With Trump and lying to this person council and also trying to suborn perjury from other okay, which by the way same thing with Roger stone. Right. He was trying to suborn perjury from what's his name? What's his crazy radio name? Yeah. Threatening to kill him. I tried to take his dog. I don't. Okay. Okay, a newly unsealed court filing Muller submitted a federal judge in December reveal prosecutors believe at at least one person connected to congress made communications to Flynn or his attorneys that seem geared toward limiting his cooperation with Muller. So again, does that just mean gates? Or does it mean newness.

"Let me see I understand this. You may not have heard this. There was news today. The General Michael Flynn, a dedicated. Military veteran. Former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. That's the defense department's version of the CIA. Back during the Obama administration, by the way, and Obama hated this guy didn't like Flynn at all Michael Flynn was one of the first endorsers of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, and he was named during the transition to head up the national security apparatus in the White House and director national intelligence, and of course, he was then railroaded by the media and the FBI claiming to have had a. Conversation with the Russian ambassador about sanctions that was not legal at the time. He was interviewed and decided by the FBI interviewers that he had not lied. And yet he was still charged by Robert Muller with a Wayang investigators the upshot of this is that Michael Flynn. Took a plea because he is five million dollars in debt to his lawyers five million dollars in legal fees. Michael Flynn, never earned the kind of money that would allow him to pay that debt. And he would have never had to pay that debt because he would've never had the higher those lawyers. If it had not been for this entirely bogus hoax of an investigation which needed guilty pleas. I am convinced that they really looked as hard as they could for anything. They could say was collusion. I am convinced that what Muller wanted and all of his pro Hillary Clinton lawyers investigators on his team he wanted to be able to announce as many guilty pleas as possible. Even though they had nothing to do with collusion and nothing to do with instruction. He didn't care. That's why he wanted guilty pleas from Roger stone and Jerome Corsi. It's why he wanted guilty pleas from Manafort, it's why he wanted a guilty plea from Rick gates, and as many people as he could get because all he wanted to do was issue report that alleged some collusion between Trump and Russia complete with nine or however many guilty plays and that would provide the media narrative Trump colluded with Russia nine guilty, pleas Muller successful report and Flynn was one of those guilty pleas that he needed didn't matter to what didn't matter guilty for what or to anything else. Just to get a guilty plea and the way you get a guilty plea is you break people. You wipe them out you destroy their financial. Life and you destroy their family, and you make it impossible for them to continue. They have to cave because nobody can compete with the department of the treasury. Nobody can have the kind of money spend, the kind of money that the government can when they really want to nail you. So Michael Flynn who didn't do anything in a case where nothing happened. There was no collusion. There never was any collusion. There never was any evidence of any collusion. And yet Michael Flynn owes lawyers five million dollars. Keeping him out of jail via guilty plea. Meanwhile, jussie smollet. Got all of his charges dropped after committing a provable. Hoax. Jussie smollet engaged in a hoax to make it appear that deranged supporters of Donald Trump beat him up. Two to three AM on a very cold Chicago morning, simply because he was Jesse smollet. He was African American and he didn't like Trump. And so there's all kinds of Trump's supporters prowling around Chicago at two thirty in the morning looking for Trump supporters who are African American beat up. The two kids the two guys from Nigeria the Justice small that hired and paid. To be these two Trump's supporters friends of his colleagues on the TV show empire admitted to the whole thing. They even showed the canceled. Check that jussie smollet wrote for mugging supplies at the hardware store. And all of that a provable hoax that the superintendent of police in Chicago detailed on national television. His charges are dropped. He's out ten grand whatever it was the bail that he had to pay the city of Chicago is gonna keep that they say he's already done so much community service work for the city of Chicago that he's not even going to have to do anymore. His record will be expunged. This all never happened. As far as his legal record is concerned. But over here. Is Michael Flynn? And there are others. Michael Caputo how I don't know. How many people have been literally financially broken by Robert Muller and that band of fraudsters acting as investigators perpetuating.

"More likely going to see to it drilling down on Russia Obama and Trump's role in the twenty sixteen elections. We'll see all of that. So Andrew McCabe, speaking out again after a sixty minutes interview, which Scott Pelley, just seem very one sided on. I don't think he tried to round it out talked about the FBI, and the scrutiny that has been under the firings of the dismissals the rapid retirements of so many revolved in this Russia investigation, and in terms of Lisa page and Peter Struck the relationship that they had the text messages that they shared showed. They weren't exactly fair and balanced in their approaches investigation, but he did not stop there. Andrew mccabe. Speaking out on the president's going after him yesterday on Twitter, and the fact is he looked at the Michael Flynn's firing. He looked at James Comey's firing. He looked at the fact the president said positive things about flat. Amir Putin on the campaign and said we got to save the country cut one. I don't know that we have ever seen in all of history example of the volume and the significance of the contacts between people in and around the president's campaign with our most serious, our existential international enemy government of Russia. Really as brought up by Mark sure. The other day, we might have been disturbing to when he looked into Hillary Clinton foundation, and that they got a hundred and forty thousand one hundred and forty thousand dollars excuse me, one hundred forty million dollars from Russian government for the Clinton foundation that could have raised a antenna Andrew McCabe says it is a lot of context there. Most of it was really revolved around Paul Manafort who didn't join. Into late in this in the campaign too late and exited early cut to why is it your suspicion? And the reason that you open to this investigation that you thought the president might actually be working on behalf of Russia. We had a number of very concerning things that we're considering at the time one of them was the fact that the president and our view had gone to extreme measures to potentially impact negatively impact possibly turn off our investigation of Russian meddling into the election and Russian coordination with his campaign saying that Nichols to his potential loaded. But when you're opening this particular kind of investigation counterintelligence, did you suspect the president might actually be working for Russia? We thought that might be possible. Yes. We thought it might be possible. Now, remember, savannah, we're at the beginning of an investigation. We don't draw conclusions. We simply look at the facts and the information we have and begin investigation. I think it should be bigger clear. The prison was upset not in the Russia investigation. Is it how it affects? Him. And was he the subject of it? And when you told them excuse me, James Komi, which I'm sure you knew about that. He wasn't the subject of it. He said just say publicly. And when you say he wouldn't say publicly and that drove the president nut for yours. But it goes to the core of who he is. He likes to know when he won. He's not going to say, well, he only won because a Russia or you only one because of the electoral college, he does not like qualifiers. And almost from the moment. He won people asked about Russia's role. He went on cut three. What were the facts that suggests that the president may the national security threat, and may in fact, be working on behalf of a foreign adversary. Russia case, we have to go back to the investigation of potential collusion between the campaign in Russia writes that through the fall these are topics we've been looking at during that time the president has been publicly undermining the investigative efforts. He's talking about it as a witch hunt. He's talking about it as a hoax. So it's clear to us that he's not happy with what we're doing. Also during that time, the president approaches the director of the FBI and asked him to stop investigating Michael Flynn, a part of our investigation. Into Russian interference. Second number one. He wasn't calling it a witch hunt before he was elected president number two. Michael flynn. What to expect to accepted an R N T R? I T I forgot the name of that Russian network RIT invitation to go and sit at a key table at a conference probably not the wisest move in the world. So would you had is Lieutenant Lieutenant General Michael Flynn reaching out to Russians, but he also reached out to the Saudis, he reached out to many during the campaign with Barack Obama Senator Obama he reached out to Iran to let them know that if he took over they'd be looking to reset that relationship there were all these type of things. So the Michael Flynn thing, I think is way overstated, especially when you had the corner him and say, you know, I hope you don't have to call a lawyer I like to come over to the White House. Just ask you a couple of questions and just because you got caught lion. Three times you said, I just forgot because of the volume of things going on you not willing to give Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, the same latitude, I think he had a lot of things going on too. And the president was not into people de legitimizing his campaign. There's an investigation going on right there. But is it at the point from the way he described it? So you should go ahead and coup. Do a full blown investigation and possibly a enact the twenty fifth amendment cut for. It also came out and text messages that they had disparaged the president that they had bastion demonstrate a clear bias against the president you oversaw that investigation. Did you ever see that kind of thing? Among Lisa page and Peter Struck not once not from Lisa page, not from struck and not from anybody else on one of their text messages mentioned the meeting and Andy's office did any kind of conversation like that take place in your hearings. I don't recall the meeting where the conversation that they relate in their private tax. It's one question. I've been asked many times we had many many meetings between myself and those too many others on the investigative team. So I don't recall the conversation they're referring to but I can tell you this page and Pete struck are good people who served this country. Well, they made some poor decisions in their private lives. And in terms of the communications they exchanged with each other. That's fraught incredible. Greece and scrutiny on the FBI. I'm sure they regret that people make decisions every right, but we're not talking about their personal. Lives. We're talking about their personal tax to each other. On government issued phones were also talking about Peter Struck was the one who did the interview Hillary Clinton the day after the fourth of July. They didn't record it. They gave him unity to best about everybody. In those text messages. They talked about how abysmal a person let alone a candidate let alone president. Donald Trump was and they talked about a safety plan with Andrew McCabe, a fallout planning Andy McCabe. It's amazing to me that he can remember every single thing that happened as relate to Donald Trump. But when it comes to the investigation on a candidate turn president. He can't remember that little convenient. So this guy's trying to rehab his image. He was fired a couple of days before he was to retire. And he's desperately trying to get his recoup some money and some credibility. We'll see how that goes. We're gonna end up with a mini Muller trial as Senator Lindsey Graham brings him before his committee to get some answers because he called me as well as as well as he Komi as well as the investigator. Skews me as well. As rod Rosenstein, disagree on key points of this investigation. They all can't be lying. They all can't be telling the truth. We gotta find out the truth. When we come back. Jennifer Griffin joins us in studio talks about some of our challenges overseas. The bad move opponent of Syria. Does my words and Afghanistan. Why is it if we wanted to have an exit from that country? Aren't we talking to the sitting government, I'll talk to Jennifer Griffin about that? And so much more. Don't move Brian Kilmeade, you giving.

"Was shocked to read the transcript, and I'm sure you did as well. One of the few substantive things that Mr. call justify to that number one salary did not on the impact that she called him afterwards them with upset that he had done though. And more importantly number two that. Right on the Logan act had nothing to do with the reasons who sent the agency said it was part of his counterintelligence investigation suggesting. General Flynn was under investigation as part of that problem and not the Logan act. So we've been pulled about this Logan AC issue. And also, I had thought that Sally Yates was some kind of had a hand in the interview. Apparently did not see that. Yes. I did. I read both is December seven or testimony as well as subsequent testimony. Everybody can read it online. It was published the day after each of his deposition interviews before congress. You know, I would say this. I don't believe anything. The James Comey says. He is completely self serving. And probably deep in his heart. He knows that. He violated all kinds of rules and regulations I in clearing Hillary Clinton and then launching the Trump Russia investigation without probable cause. And without any evidence. And he's conduct in the in the Michael Flynn debacle. You know, they use the Logan act as a pretext to go after Michael Flynn to lie to Flynn to convince him to do an interview with F B I agents who were just gonna come over there and have a little chat. No big deal. No legal jeopardy. You don't need a lawyer. They were studying you mom, and they use the Logan act as a pretext people who don't know the Logan act. It prohibits American citizens from interfering in diplomatic disputes the Logan act which has never been successfully prosecuted in two hundred years has no application to Michael Flynn because he wasn't a private citizen. He was acting in the course and scope of his position as the national security adviser for the incoming administration. So there's no Logan act violation, but they use that as a pretext and now that Komi has been exposed for aronie and wrong. Wrongfully using that he's trying to change his story. Oh, it's a counterintelligence investigation. Like like what why would you? Why would there be a counterintelligence investigation for Michael Flynn? Who's doing his job? He's supposed to be making contact with foreign officials. I mean, that's what all transition officials do. So don't believe anything James Comey says that's my advice. That's my opinion of James Comey. He has zero credibility. And he is a confessed liar. Remember, he said on television that he has lied. So in and by the way, the record proves that. Let's go to our next caller, which is Bill from Virginia. Hi, bill. Hey, greg. Great book listening to.
